Haven't planned that far ahead


Kenji was one of Shigekuni Yamamoto's original 12 commanders and best friends, and participated as a commander of the Shinigami forces trying to stop Juhabach. Soon after Yamamoto defeated him, Kenji was made a captain of the Gotei 13, a military organization based around keeping the balance of souls correct and keeping Soul Society safe.

Soon after becoming captain of the Sixth Division, Kenji decided that in case he died, a family should be able to continue on his legacy and perhaps, try and make him their immortal leader so that he could take over the Human World and use it as his HQ.

For years, Kenji spied on Toronamatei, a giant city situated in southern England, and frequently revealed information to Yamamoto about the Fullbringer species, and that they seemed to have no idea that the Shinigami existed. Yamamoto informed him to reveal the Gotei 13's existence, and the idea of a truce (Although the real plan was to kill every Fullbringer from within Toronamatei itself).

In 1157, the Gotei 13 decided that the Fullbringers had to be consistently monitored in order to stop them from rebelling, but it was too late. As soon as Tenjiro Kirinji gave the message that Toronamatei was to be monitored by Shinigami keeping watch under the leadership of Kenji, everyone started to prepare themselves for Kenji.

Powers & AbilitiesEdit

Master Swordsman: Kenji is a master of swordsmanship, possessing flawless precision and performing lethal attacks with no effort, to the point where he constantly killed Fullbringers without any injury. The limit of Kenji's swordsmanship came when he fought Haruko Yoritomo, famous for her skill in Kendo.

Shunpo Master: Kenji is extremely proficient in Shunpo, being able to avoid lightning-quick attacks at close-range.

Immense Spiritual Power: As one of the oldest and strongest Captains in the Gotei 13, Kenji possesses tremendous spiritual power, that the Kuchiki Clan will never reach again. During the invasion of Toronamatei,, he is not overwhelmed by the spiritual pressure of Yamamoto, but certainly knew of its Bankai's presence.

Enhanced Endurance: While not having the most imposing appearance compared to other Shinigami captains like Kenpachi Zaraki, Kenji is a very resilient fighter. During his fight against Haruko, despite gaining severe injuries, Kenji continued fighting effectively, even ignoring his wounds to the point where he seemed unfazed by them. At the end of the fight, he performed an impressive Flash Step to leave.
