Hulu's mother died during birth and him and his father have been together ever since. He has a really strong bond with his father and hates to see him drunk. His fathers drinking problems only got worst and he began to hit Hulu.One
night Hulu's father got so drunk he fed Hulu a devil fruit. Realizing what he had done he tried to explain to Hulu what was going to happen to him. Hearing this, Hulu burst into tears and passed out. Waking up traumatized he suffered severe memory lapses and still has trouble remembering things today. Hulu enroled into the academy completely unaware of his new abilities.
