A female shinigami from Bleach. She was a key component in starting the plot of the series. In the beginning of it, she gave her powers as a shinigami (soul reaper) to kurosaki_ichigo in order for him to defend himself and his two sisters kurosaki_karin, and kurosaki_yuzu from an attack by a hollow. The name of her zanpakuto and signature bankai is called Sode No Shira Yuki and Some no mai Tsukishiro which completely immobilizes her opponent by freezing them solid, then instantly killing them when the ice is shattered. Her voice is played by Fumiko Orikasa in Japanese, and Michelle Ruff provides her English dub voice.
