Despite lacking loyalty and respect for other members, they are extremely loyal to their leader, Xanxus. The Varia also appear to have more than fifty subordinates ranged under the command of the main members. The Varia is apparently reclusive, only showing themselves after Iemitsu Sawada disappeared. During the Future Arc, a 32 member Varia squad led by Xanxus attack a Millefiore base in Italy in accordance with the Vongola's plan to eliminate the Millefiore.

Members of Varia
Xanxus is the current leader of the Varia and Vongola IX's adopted son. He was born into poverty with just his mother, who was mentally ill. His mother discovered his Dying Will Flame when he was very young and brought him to Vongola IX. When he and his mother confronted the 9th, he took Xanxus and placed his scarf around him agreeing that he was indeed his son even though he had never seen this woman before nor her son. Xanxus has a fierce belief in the Vongola family's supremacy, and claims that even during internal conflicts, the Vongola will stand united against foreign forces. During the Varia Arc, he and Tsuna battle for the Sky Vongola Ring plus the position of the 10th Vongola Boss, and loses. Later in the Future Arc, he remains the leader of the Varia and leads a raid against the Millefiore, taking their headquarters. He battles against one of the Fake Funeral Wreaths as well, showing he has grown much stronger in the future. His Box Weapon is Ligre Tempesta Di Cielo.
Leviathan is known as 'Levi' for short, is an extremely loyal subordinate to Xanxus, so much that he only ever fights for his approval. Reborn said that once he chooses a target, whether it be a man, woman, or child, he would beat them mercilessly. He is also extremely zealous, showing up extremely (2 hours) early to fights. It is said that his speed in accomplishing his work is the best in the Varia. His Box Weapon is Torpedine Fulmine.
Belphegor is an assassin working for the Vongola's independent assassination squad, the Varia. He is known as 'Prince the Ripper' (Purinzu za Rippa), and is often referred to as Bel. He has a crescent-shaped birthmark on the right side of his stomach that his elder identical twin brother, Rasiel also has but mirrored. It is stated in the anime that Belphegor is inferior to his twin brother in almost every way, whether it be studying or racing, causing them to detest each other. At age 8, he stabbed Rasiel, presumably to death. However this was not the case, as Rasiel was protected by his fake Mare ring and was not murdered. Belphegor was the storm half-ring bearer of the Varia during the Vongola Ring conflict. He represents the sin of sloth and is prince of an unknown country. He is known as a battle genius, but his abilities only truly present themselves when he sees his own "royal" blood, which reminds him of the time he stabbed his brother. His eyes are never shown in the manga, But at Reborn volume 24, Lussuria says that his eyes are both cool and loyal. His Box Weapon is Visone Tempesta.
Gola Mosca is a killing machine that was sold to the Varia by the Italian Underground Economy. Mosca was originally a weapon built by the Italian Military, but construction on the project was halted and covered up until the Vongola began working on it themselves.The Military stopped developing the Mosca weapon because it required a human life force that could use a strong Dying Will Flame for its own power. Xanxus placed Vongola IX within Gola Mosca to act as the machine's power source, then gave Gola Mosca the position as the Varia's Cloud Guardian. During the Cloud Guardian Battle in the Vongola Tournament, Gola Mosca is immediately ripped apart by Hibari. However, when Hibari is provoked and fails to allow Xanxus to manually turn Gola Mosca off, the machine goes berserk and fires missiles and bullets wildly. Eventually, Tsuna slices it open, stopping its rampage, but when IX falls out of Gola Mosca's remains, Xanxus frames Tsuna as having attempted to kill the man..666 Hell Ring. Introduced during the Varia attack on a Millefiore base in Italy, Flan is Mammon's replacement as the group's Illusionist and is thus forced to wear a large frog hat to symbolize this. He has a calm demeanor despite being very antagonistic towards the other members of the Varia, verbally attacking them. Although this has not been explained, it seems that he has a rare Genetic disorder which gives him the ability to resist pain. He has been stabbed multiple times by Belphegor but did not reveal to have felt any pain. According to Reborn, his profile is top secret. He is scouted to Varia, nearly kidnapped by Belphegor and Squalo. It's revealed later that his master is Mukuro Rokudo, who was released from the Vendicare prison thanks to his help. We are also led to assume that his Illusions are some of the strongest because he was able to fool the Vendice Guards who claim that "there are only three Illusionists in this world who have the ability to deceive our eyes."
Sword Emperor and Varia’s Leader before Xanxus; however, he was defeated in a battle with Squalo. With this, Squalo was declared the new Sword Emperor, and to secure his seat, he defeated 100 people in a row, where every battle was filmed and the set was later given to Takeshi Yamamoto. He had only one hand, and because of this, Squalo cut off his own hand as to understand Tyr's fighting style.
