How Much Did People Know About Hunter?
Initially when seeing that Darius knew Hunter was Belos’s nephew, I assumed their relation must’ve been known for a while, but a small part in an analysis post I saw made me consider the possibility that Hunter’s face/identity reveal in-universe might have been a recent thing, and to be honest, I think it’s likely.
The reason why is because of how Hunter -as the Golden Guard- was presented to us in previous episodes.
Tumblr media
In S1EP18, ‘Agony of a Witch’, he’s standing silently beside Belos, and our attention is never drawn to him. Not much to comment on, but him having a unique uniform and standing so close to Belos indicates that he’s of higher rank and has some kind of special position.
Tumblr media Tumblr media
In S1EP19, ‘Young Blood, Old Souls’, his presence is finally acknowledged at the end of the episode. He’s still silent, but Belos orders him to spy on the inhabitants of the Owl House, they nod to each other, and GG leaves.
The one time our attention was drawn to him, it was through Belos giving him an order, and him simply following it. We had no reason to believe he wasn’t taken seriously by others. So far, he’s just a mysterious, seemingly high-ranking member of the Emperor’s Coven.
Now, onto his proper debut in the show.
Tumblr media
In S2EP1, ‘Separate Tides’, at first we just get a teaser - we see an advertisement of the Emperor’s Coven featuring him, and we get Lilith voicing her opinion of him.
���He always got special treatment, because he was the “genius teen prodigy”, but he’s really just a brat”
(Side note, the “teen” part completely flew over my head the first time I watched it, I thought it was meant in the past tense, and that he’s older now. I might’ve just been a bit stupid, but I feel like it was a reasonable assumption to make. Keep that in mind for later)
Then he briefly appears in this scene:
Tumblr media
The captain nods to him, indicating that he’s following orders, and GG closes the window. The music is ominous, GG is still silent and is clearly in a position of power and authority.
His next brief appearance is here, where he captures King, after the demon finds out this is one of the Emperor’s ships, and we hear GG’s voice for the first time.
Tumblr media
King: “Oh boy, I gotta tell Luz”
GG: “Unfortunately, you won’t have the chance”
While his voice doesn’t sound intimidating, he’s shrouded in darkness, despite King making the lights brighter. In addition to that, King looks scared when GG approaches him. GG is being built up as a meaningful antagonist, a real threat.
Finally, about two thirds of the way through the episode, he makes his grand entrance.
Tumblr media Tumblr media Tumblr media
The earth shakes, he rises out of the sea inside a giant fist of boiling water and slams it into the ground, steam coming off him, even from the eye holes of his mask. And his first line following that display? A threat.
As the scene continues, the way he talks indicates that the power dynamic is in his favor, despite the situation being a 2v1, and that he’s fully aware of it. He’s confidently and calmly telling Luz and Eda to do as he says, and he laughs at them when they jump off the plant that eats flesh.
Tumblr media
When they fight him, he easily defeats them and holds them over the Boiling Sea. After Luz fights the (fake) Selkidomus and returns, he throws King back to her and gives her a warning before he leaves, with ominous music playing in the background.
Tumblr media
“And try to stay out of trouble. The Emperor is not a merciful man”
The next time we see him is at the end of S2EP2, ‘Escaping Expulsion’, in which he visits the Blights to tell them the Emperor is buying all of their Abomatons.
Tumblr media
Ominous music is playing once again, but here is what’s more important:
Tumblr media Tumblr media Tumblr media
Odalia is scared of him.
Throughout this episode, the only things this woman demonstrated were confidence, sadism and anger. But here, she is scared. She makes Alador kneel with her, and her expression is anxious, as she is afraid of upsetting the Emperor’s right-hand man.
The way he speaks to her also indicates his position of power and authority over her, and his ability to casually interrupt her shows he would get no consequences for it, despite the Blights’ wealth and influence.
Throughout the first two episodes of Season 2 he is presented as a real threat, as someone who has power and authority, as someone who is taken seriously and even feared by other people on the Isles.
But then we get to S2EP6, ‘Hunting Palismen’.
Tumblr media
In the beginning of the episode, he’s just doing his job of being Belos’s right-hand man. He helps Belos get to the throne room, where his condition could act up away from other people, and then he’s sent on a mission. So far, no big difference from his previous appearances.
After Kiki’s pet crashed his blimp and we got his face reveal, finding out that he is, in fact, barely older than Luz, he immediately headed to the police station in Latissa, expecting to get assistance there. He acted like he normally would, giving the scouts orders right away, but...
Tumblr media
They didn’t recognize him, and they even thought his coven mark was just a temporary tattoo. Without his mask and uniform, they didn’t believe he could actually be a member of the Emperor’s Coven, let alone their superior.
The Golden Guard was taken seriously. Hunter was not.
And I think being dismissed by the scouts confirmed that to him, or maybe even made him realize that in the first place. It certainly made clear the distinction between him and his title.
It’s not hard to believe that after the events of this episode, Hunter and/or Belos might’ve decided that it’s better to make his face/identity known to the rest of the Emperor’s Coven, so that this doesn’t happen again. But this only led to him being dismissed even as the Golden Guard, because now everyone knows he’s just a teenager with no powers.
Tumblr media
The Head Witches ignore and dismiss him in the beginning of S2EP13, ‘Any Sport in a Storm’, and now that people know Hunter is Belos’s nephew, that also makes it easy to write his position off as purely a result of nepotism, thinking that he’s only the Golden Guard because of his relation to the Emperor, which only makes life harder for him.
I think some people might have had more respect for him before, but lost it after finding out he’s a powerless teenager related to the Emperor. He revealed his face to avoid a situation where other coven members don’t recognize him without the mask or uniform, but it backfired and made them stop taking him seriously. Or, at least, they no longer take him as seriously as they used to.
I wouldn’t be surprised if, before the reveal, most people didn’t know he was related to Belos or that he was a powerless witch. I think at least some people might have also thought he was older, having never seen his face.
I myself originally assumed he was a young adult, around 20 years old, until Dana Terrace confirmed on Twitter that he’s 16. People in-universe could have made the same assumption, and in that case it wouldn’t be surprising if, upon finding out he’s actually 16, they started taking him less seriously.
If he used to be more highly regarded before the events of ‘Hunting Palismen’, it would also make sense why Kiki was so envious of him, to the point of trying to kill him, likely to try and take his place - because he was taken seriously, and he was more respected than her, until he revealed his identity.
TL;DR: We see him being treated with respect and taken seriously - even wealthy and influential people were intimidated by him, until ‘Hunting Palismen’, and we only see him being ignored and dismissed in episodes following that. The only person who always had power and authority over him was Belos, but that’s expected - he’s the Emperor and Hunter’s parental figure.
It would also make sense for his face reveal to the audience to coincide with his face/identity reveal in-universe, especially considering the same thing has already happened with Belos - his face is revealed to the audience in S2EP9, ‘Eclipse Lake’, and only two episodes later, in S2EP11, ‘Follies at the Coven Day Parade’, he reveals it to the public in-universe.

I can't believe I've just noticed it (or rather it just never registered until I saw the scout uniform and had to do a double take at refs of what I'm drawing rn) but
You know how coven scouts have those fun pointy shoes
Tumblr media
Well, Hunter doesn't. His entire outfit is proper, EXCEPT for the boots
Tumblr media
And yet, they seem to be made for the uniform, matching its colors, unlike his regular shoes.
This dude really does love his heels. Can't tell who's more extra, honestly 😂

The face reveal... - [Mass Posting - Part 20]
Emperor Belos is having a meeting with the coven when it's interrupted...
The emperor is upset at the interruption and questions about it; Steve peeks out in visible distress, saying that the young prince can't stop crying, and he's quite distressed.
Tumblr media Tumblr media Tumblr media
The baby is given to him, but he still looks quite sad; Belos has doubts about it and then remembers his outfit, he doesn't have time and he doesn't care.
"If anyone talks about it, I'll personally get rid of anyone!" - Emperor Belos.
He can always get rid of someone if required...
Tumblr media Tumblr media
"Nobody say anything!"
Everyone agrees not to say anything and Belos proceeds to remove his mask; baby Hunter is excited to see the familiar face in front of him.
Tumblr media
The baby Hunter is happy and will remain with the emperor in the meeting, leaving everyone surprised, as they expected something different about the appearance of his majesty.
Belos doesn't forget to give one last warning, to focus on his beautiful nephew, and the others just watch, quite scared of his ability to change their expressions.

Beloctober #5: Coven Scout
Tumblr media
Did this take him all day to carve?
Yes.
Did he make it entirely to impress Belos (and potentially win over his love in the process)?
Absolutely.
