Character Profiles: Do you know it all ?

Ichigo is the main character of the manga. He goes one day from being a normal every day kid who can see ghosts, to being attacked by a hollow. During this battle, when he is about to perish, a new shinsingami he has just recently met decideds to transfer half of her energy into him. Unfortunately, due to his spiritual awareness already, the moment her sword touches his soul, he takes virtually all of her power, transforming him into a shinigami. After this, he is given the role of a shinigami to protect those who are being attacked by hollows, which usually means protecting/fighting against people he already knows. Over a short period of time, Ichigo has shown that he has been able to do many things that no human should be able to do, such as fight at the level he does, as well as be able to see spiritual aura in a physical form (which allows him to locate people by sensing there aura, even if it is very weak). He is slowly begining to learn how to use and regulate his spiritual power.


Rukia Kuchiki

Rukia Kuchikiis the first real Shinigami that Ichigo ever encountered, and to save both Ichigo and herself she transfered her Shinigami powers to him. She currently is still working for soul society, but as Ichigo's Shinigami teacher. She hides herself in her human form from Hollows until her strength returns - all the while coaching Ichigo and helping him with his Soul Society missions. She aslo puts up a wonderful facade around her class mates, and is still trying to adapt and understand many things about the human world.


Orihime Inoue

One of Ichigo's classmates has a very big crush on him, but is too afraid to act on it. She lost her borther in a car accident many years ago, and he came back as a hollow to eat her soul. Just before he did, he realized that this would not make her happy and that what he was doing was wrong. So, he "cleansed himself" by making himself disappear. After being in contact withing Ichigo's Shinigami form, her spiritual power was awakened.


Uryu Ishida

Ishida Uryu is the last surviving quincy, and has a deep seeded hatred for all Shinigami because his sensei died fighting hollows when the Shinigami were late to show up. He challenges Ichigo by putting out hollow bait and thus attracting alot of hollows, so much that they couldnt not handle them all. Ishida and Ichigo then team up to beat the hollows and save the city.


Sado Yasutora (Chad)

Chad is Ichigo's very large friend, who seems to be incredibly strong. He is even able to hold a steel beam on his back, as well as endure being hit by a car and many other accidents. He has a parakeet that has a ghoul's soul in it as well, and this parakeet brings about the death of every one of its owners. After coming in contact with Ichigo's Shinigami form, his spiritual powers were awakened and he was able to defeat a hollow.


Jin Kariya

Jin Kariya Is the leader of the Bounts. He has white hair, a scar on his chin (the result of a Hollow attack which occurred when he was a child), long upward-curving eyebrows, and bright red eyes, and is the most powerful member of the Bount group. Initially, according to Yoshino, his goal was to consume living spirits and gain massive amounts of power. However, this had a 50% chance of ripping open the barrier between the mortal world and the world of hollows. As the series progressed, however, he revealed that his plans were to invade Soul Society. He controls the clan's power to the dolls with a pack of cards referred to as the seal. Kariya also has hidden powers, which allow him to easily defeat hollows and other dolls. He is also able to deflect attacks and immobilize opponents with a single touch. Unlike the other Bounts, Kariya can use the abilities of his doll without it being called out, which is what his tattoo (seal) on his upper body indicates. This would explain why he is able to deflect other dolls' attacks.

Messer
is Jin Kariya's doll. When called, Messer causes the sky above Kariya to turn dark and the clouds to swirl towards him. Wind from this release can be felt from very far away. Kariya's raised hand and the swirling clouds meet in a massive tornado, after which his forearm and hand cover in metal. Messer is a wind elemental that takes the form of a liquid metal sword in the shape of the Bount crest. The blade is made of a spinning column of wind, resembling a drill bit. It can also use air friction to electrify the blade. Messer is strong enough to contend Zangestu with Ichigo 'ssword slayer and hisgestuo tenshuo attack in form.


Koga Go

Koga GōIs a large and muscular man who resembles a punkish biker with spiky orange hair. Even without using his doll, Koga has impressive physical strength, able to easily overpower Ichigo with just his bare hands. His doll is Dalk, a female metallic doll who can control her molecules and reshape herself at will. According to episode 83, Koga's real name is Claude Gauguin, and he lived in a European country in years past. He has lived for over 12 generations. After a falling out with Kariya over his plan to destroy Soul Society, which Koga found too extreme, Koga attempted to find and stop Kariya himself. He ended up fighting and losing to Hitsugaya 10th squad captain instead, as neither he nor Dalk could contend with the extreme cold and long-range nature of Hitsugaya's zanpakto. He did not die, however, and was secretly taken by to Yoruichi Rantao's home, where he was nursed back to health. Upon discovering that he was the last Bount, he apologized for the actions of his race, and Kariya in particular.

Dalk s Koga's doll. She takes the form of a metal sphere when sealed. When released, she forms into a semi-humanoid/spider-like shape and can control the metal that makes up her body, reforming it into any shape she wishes. She is able to split herself into tiny spheres no bigger than a ball bearing, making it very difficult to destroy her. She uses a variety of attacks in combat, such as creating metallic webs to entrap her opponent, firing pieces of her body as projectiles, and even turning her arms into
machine guns to fire makeshift bullets through. After Koga drank the bitto's soul elixir, Dalk became even more spider-like, retaining only her humanoid torso. She also gained much more metal to work with. Dalk has trouble with cold-based attacks, which make it difficult for her to split her body apart. In contrast, she seems to be nearly invulnerable to heat.


Yoshino Soma

Yoshino claims to oppose her superior and lover, Jin Kariya. She resembles ishida's mother in appearance, but it is stated that the Bounts can not produce life. Yoshino seems to be the exception to the rule, as it was stated that she could reproduce. Yoshino also bears a great resemblance to,rantao the creator of the Bounts. The reason for their resemblance is because Yoshino is a copy of Rantao, since the Bounts are artificial souls that were created based on shinigami souls. She merges with Goethe after Kariya removes her seal, and dies when she is impaled through the chest by Kariya.

Goethe
is Yoshino Sōma's doll. It takes the form of a claw (on her left hand) and bracelet (on her right hand) when sealed. To unseal Goethe, Yoshino strikes the two pieces together to create a spark, which releases him. Goethe is a fire elemental, able to create and control flame. While mostly humanoid in appearance, it has no legs. It can't be attacked physically, being made of flame, and reforms if dispersed. In Yoshino's last moments, she and Goethe merge to create a stronger, hybrid being, allowing Yoshino to control fire herself.
