Gon is a fourteen-year-old boy who has long spiky black hair with green tips and large, light brown eyes. His usual outfit is composed of a green jacket with reddish edges covering a black tank top underneath, green shorts, and green laced boots. On each of Gon's hands there is the tell-tale paw pads that give away his existence as a descendant of the Bartholomew clan.
Gon is an athletic, rustic, and friendly boy. Having spent a lot of time in the woods as a child, he is very good with animals. Gon is known for being simple-minded and determined. This determination and talent leads to both potential allies and potential enemies trusting in him and taking his side. Gon wants to become a Ninja because he wishes to find out the depths of an occupation that would cause a father to choose the profession over being with his own son.
Gon's curiosity takes precedence over his fear. Simultaneously, his flaws lie in his temper and impulsive nature. Gon sometimes fails to think things through and such actions lead to him suffering. His will is stronger than most and he can be very level-headed, but this clear mind can also make him very cold at times. Though possessing talent far beyond the norm for his age, anytime his abilities are challenged his feels as if he has to prove his antagonist wrong. He continually strives to obtain greater power, often becoming exceptionally stronger in his anger. But Gon's anger also leads to extremely reckless tendencies. When his emotions are ignited, Gon becomes irrational and completely oblivious to anything else.
Gon is extremely confident in his abilities. Sometimes, he does not realize when the opponent is far stronger or even after he knows the opponent is stronger than him; regardless, he will continue to fight. He refuses to accept himself as inferior to any opponent that he disagrees with, including those clearly stronger than him. Aside from becoming a Ninja and finding his father, Gon desires strength above all else. Gon's greatest insecurity lies in his own weakness and not being able to protect those close to him.

Gon grew up in Kirigakure as an orphan he was abandoned at an extremely young age by his father, never knowing his mother and begging for scraps on the street. He was always different, even from the other street kids who he desperately tried to fit in with. It continued this way for many years, Gon grew and within him growing a dream to be a ninja, like his father. After hearing the stories about the powerful ninja of his village his interested was piqued but it was one particular ninja story, which mentioned his fathers name that made Gon want to take the exam, to prove that he could be more than just some street kid and to find out why his father left. So he begun to spy from bushes and trees and watched how the Genin of the village trained and fought and Gon tried to mimic them by himself. Stealing kunai from the academy and practicing in solitude he tried to hone what little skill he had. One day though he was caught, not by some lowly Genin either but by a powerful Jonin of the mist. He eyed Gon with a malicious stare, immediately dismissing him as some lowly street trash not worth anything. Gon with fear in his eyes did the first brave thing hes ever done in his life, stupid but brave. Gon recognized the Jonin and he knew his ruthless reputation, so he struck out with the kunai attempting to stab him. But he was easily outmatched, the Jonin easily avoided the attack, disarming Gon and grabbing him with hands of iron around his wrist. The Jonin then drew back his fist to deal with the worthless boy, when fate intervened. The Jonin happened to see Gon's hand, as present upon it the strange paw that Gon was born with and always ridiculed for. The Jonin's eyes widened in astonishment and he dropped of Gon instantly, casui him to fall over from the sudden release. The Jonin then stared at Gon and barked a few quick questions to Gon. What did he know of his past, who his parents were, if he knew what those paws meant. All of which Gon, naturally had no clue about.
The Jonin then took Gon and explained everything to him, the paws, the Bartholomew clan and most importantly he informed Gon that he was going to train him in the art of those paws, the jonin taking off a glove revealing that he was also part of the rare clan. He had great disdain for Gon initial lack of ability but since the clan had dwindled to so few he had no other choice. And so Gon trained, for many months in basic ninja skills and especially his clan techniques. He did this until finally the Jonin barely passed him to take the Genin exam for the village. Upon entering the exam was arduous and hard mentally for the average mist Genin but Gon excelled past his fellow initiates and they finally come upon the final exam. They were locked into a featureless room and told to fight each other, the losers being cast out from the academy. Gon was horrified at this and tried to talk down the other Genin and stop the test but to no avail. They attempted an assault on him but by using his clans abilities he easy defeated them all without even being touched. Gon had finally been exposed to the terrible methods of the village and he was disgusted by it. So Gon placed his hand on the wall of the exam room and as the instructors entered, he blew it apart, escaping through the hole, he running from the village. Gon was hunted by the Jonin and so he ran far and wide until he found himself at the edge of a vast desert. He smirked to himself, "Lets see those bastards find me in there." So he strode into the sand covered landscape and onto his path as a ninja.
One of the special powers of the Bartholomew Clan’s paws is the ability to push anything – even the air around them – at extreme speeds. Bartholomew clan members fight in a style that is very reminiscent of sumo wrestling, crouching in a low, wide stance and even using the signature stomp. One of their primary forms of attack is palm thrusts, which they use to launch powerful air bullets at the enemy, which look like small paws and do lots of damage to the opponent, even leaving the imprint of a paw on them. The thrust is even strong enough to make holes in boulders, obviously leaving behind the signature paw print. In regard to their sumo roots, Bartholomew members spend much of their time with their feet planted, refusing to surrender any ground to their opposition.
The paws's powers also allow them to move at the same speed as the objects they push, by using it to push himself, appearing instantaneously at a desired location regardless of distance, all the while he moves with no more than a slow walk. Or by repelling the friction around him and running without friction. However, this technique requires lots of chakra and chakra control hence it can only be used up to mid range and cannot be sustained for long range movement.
The Bartholomew members are a destructive engine, with some shown to have enough power to turn entire islands to dust.
Members of the clan also have the ability to extract the pain and exhaustion from a person’s body by placing their paws of the person’s chest, though this technique can be used on the members of the clan themselves, by repelling the pain and exhaustion within their body, meaning that his abilities can be used to heal people and cure them. Once this is done, it forms a gargantuan red bubble that can then be launched at the opponent. This is one of the most powerful abilities of the Bartholomew clan. This technique however can only be used on oneself or ones kinsmen and not on anyone else. Furthermore only complete masters of the KG can use this technique.
After training thoroughly in the element of water Gon has discovered his affinity for the element and as such he can perform all Suiton techniques with only a single hand seal
Through his frequent usage of the fire element Gon has familiarized himself with the element so much that he can perform any hand seals for this element faster that the normal ninja.
Gon carries many weapons on him. Such as:
♦A small sword strapped horizontally along his back
