The Varia is an elite independent assassination squad under the Vongola Famiglia. They are genius assassins who work in the deepest recesses of the Mafia. Their flag contains the text Squadra killer autonoma di Vongola IX, lit. "Autonomous Assassination Team of Vongola IX".

Description[edit | edit source]

Each member takes on missions that are said to be impossible to accomplish by humans; however, they do not accept a mission unless the chance of success is 90% or higher. Those that see them work often say that their high-level assassination skills are demonic.

Despite lacking loyalty and respect for other members, they are extremely loyal to their leader, Xanxus. As professional killers, they obey only him. The Varia also appears to have more than fifty subordinates ranged under the command of the main members. The Varia are based in Italy and apparently reclusive, only showing themselves after Iemitsu Sawada disappeared.

Executive members are afforded Varia Rings, A-Rank rings that can harness Dying Will Flames of the Sky.

Members[edit | edit source]

Other members[edit | edit source]

  • Other remaining known members of the Varia include a 50-member reinforcement squad whose power is second only to the executive staff (seen only during the Varia Arc) and numerous grunts. [citation needed]
  • In the future, the Varia seem to have downsized, seeing as the Varia party that raided Millefiore headquarters is said to consist of only 32 members.[1]
  • There are at least 10 other Mists outside of Mammon and Fran.[2]

Locations[edit | edit source]

Varia's HQ

Varia has a headquarters in which the core members live. Known facilities in it are their respective bedrooms and bathrooms, their dining and meeting rooms, and Xanxus's office.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Each of their names (Latin names) matches one of the Seven Deadly Sins or the respective demons of the sins, excluding Fran:
  • Doctor Shamal was originally asked to join Varia many years ago in the past; however, he declined the offer.[citation needed]
  • In an episode of Mr. Rebokku no Ciao Ciao Interview, it is revealed that the Varia celebrates New Year’s in Japan; however, this is later revealed to just be randomly made up by Reborn.
  • In the manga extras, it's stated that there are many variations of the Varia uniform. This could be the origin of their name.
  • Varia is Latin for Vicovaro, a commune in Italy. Also, the word varia means "varies" in Italian and Portuguese, and "various" in Latin.
  • The Varia are said to kill any member who fails, in order to eliminate weakness. However, it seems that they are injured rather than killed, since Lussuria, Squalo, and Viper have failed on occasion and all three are still alive.
  • In recent Reborn! Famiglia polls, Varia ranked 3rd.
  • To join the Varia, you have to speak a minimum of seven languages.[citation needed]
  • They have yet to replace Gola Moska and this remains unchanged in the future, so they lack a Cloud Guardian.
  • M.M. claims that the Varia have a "paltry" salary and that the Kokuyo Junior High Gang are more highly paid. Whether this is true remains unknown.
  • The Varia have their own private jet (seen during The Curse of the Rainbow Arc).
  • As stated by Fran in the future, the Varia are open to suggestions for their victims' manner of death.
