Yoruichi Shihōin (四楓院 夜一, Shihōin Yoruichi) is the former 2nd Division Captain, as well as the former Onmitsukidō Commander. Marenoshin Ōmaeda served as her Lieutenant. Yoruichi is responsible for saving both Kisuke Urahara and Tessai Tsukabishi, heading into exile with the two, basing herself into the Material World.
Powers & Abilities
Yoruichi's Zanpakutō name and abilities are unknown. During her tenure as a Shinigami, Yoruichi wore her sword horizontally behind her on her lower back, though she is no longer seen with her Zanpakutō on her person. By her own admission, she is stronger as a fighter by simply using her Hakuda skills. Because of this, she has to soothe her sword's ego every day due to it being neglected.
