Vizards - Shinji Hirako

Shinji is the first vizard Ichigo encounters. He appears at Ichigo's school as a new student shortly following the Bount arc. Shinji immediately hints to Ichigo what he is and his intentions to recruit Ichigo into the vizards. Shinji appears to hold a leadership role among the vizards, but does not enforce any type of respectful behavior from the others (as seen by Hiyori constantly beating and abusing him). Shinji is friendly to most people, but seemingly lecherous around attractive young girls like Orihime. Shinji always exhibits a grin of some kind and plays a rather comical role with his fellow vizards. Despite this, Shinji is a powerful fighter, easily able to overwhelm Grimmjow after unleashing his hollow mask.


Vizards - Hiyori Sarugaki

Hiyori is a tiny, blonde-haired girl with a fierce temper and violent tendencies. Her hair is worn in pigtails and she wears a red jogging outfit (which is decorated with the first kanji of her name). She also has a tiny fang on the left side of her mouth. Hiyori often abuses Shinji, usually by slapping him with one of her sandals. Her hollow mask is rhinoceros -like in appearance, sporting a prominent horn centered near the forehead. She took the longest to defeat her inner hollow out of all the current vizard (excluding Ichigo, who took about the same amount of time), at 69 minutes and 2 seconds. Hiyori's zanpokto is standard in appearance with her tsuba decorated in small hearts, a contrast to her not-so-girlish personality. She normally wears her sword from her right shoulder, like Ichigo.
