The Hunter Association licenses these hunters. It is a non-governmental organization responsible for testing these fighters and ensuring that they are prepared for whatever they will be asked to do.

Ignoring his father’s warning, he led a group of hunters and a team from the kingdom of Kukan’yu on an expedition to find the alchemical plant Medallion via an uncharted route. Beyond and his team managed to retrieve the plant, but on the way back they became disoriented and the zombie disease decimated the group, leaving only six survivors, including a hunter, rendered immortal by the disease. The expedition ultimately failed due to the death of the plant.
Beyond began preparing for a future expedition by searching for talented individuals, the means, and the international approval of Isaac Netero, who forbade him from returning to the Dark Continent until his death, prompting Beyond to begin searching for individuals. talent, the means and international approval for a future expedition.

When Nasubi Hui Guo Rou, King of the Kakin Empire, introduces Beyond as the leader of their planned expedition to the Dark Continent, the Zodiacs become aware of his existence. Beyond mentions the Dark Continent as the origin of humans in his speech, and he promises to take anyone willing to explore it with him. The video has over a hundred million views on EyeTube an hour after it was released, and according to reports, Kakin’s hundred thousand phone lines are struggling to keep up with the influx of apps.
Beyond expresses his happiness by drinking. Curly informs him that Nasubi received a cease and desist letter from the V5, but Beyond instructs him to inform the King to ignore it. He asks the scholar what is needed to travel to the Dark Continent with the approval of the Five Modern Nations, but is irritated by the long explanation and cuts him off abruptly. He enthusiastically declares his desire to explore the unknown and swears to respect the wishes of those who wish to join or leave but to crush anyone who interferes.
As he predicted, V5 responds to the news of his capture by accepting a voyage where the Hunter Association is Beyond’s supervisor, who will seek to escape and rejoin his expedition team. He then calls Beans and hands himself over to the Zodiacs, who as he predicted have been tasked by the V5 to track him down, declaring himself open to a deal. He explains that their open policy is due to public pressure and he challenges the Zodiacs to move to the Dark Continent.
