Rukia Kuchiki (朽木 ルキア, Kuchiki Rukia) is one of the central characters in the series, and one of the most prominent (and popular) female characters shown within the series' continuity, alongside Orihime Inoue, Rangiku Matsumoto, and Yoruichi Shihōin. Rukia is an unseated Shinigami in the 13th Division under Jūshirō Ukitake. She meets Ichigo Kurosaki, a high school student, and through a set of circumstances, he obtains her powers, forcing her to take up residence in his home and him to take her place as a Shinigami.


Short and petite, Rukia is among one of the shortest characters in Bleach (especially for her physical "age"), easily being towered over by people of Chad's or the Espada's height, such as Nelliel Tu Odelschwanck. She has pale skin and dark hair, she somehow manages to always keep a stray bang in between her eyes. She has a purplish eye color which at times looks as if they have some dark-blue in them. Byakuya said to Rukia that she strongly resembles her older sister and his own wife, Hisana Kuchiki.

Hikari ochiru Soul StormEdit

Rukia meets andre while patroling the real world for hollows. She runs into a fairly strong hollow and has a lot of trouble taking it down. Andre just warping in from the D link sees her and mistakes the hollow for an unbirth and quickly takes care of it. Rukia suprised by the fact that he defeated it so easily introduces herself and asks his name. Later in the series she learns of his goal and offers her and a couple others help. (namely Rangiku Ichigo, and Toshiro).
