Sōritsu Kuchiki (創立朽木, Kuchiki Sōritsu) was the first Captain of the 6th Division in the Gotei 13, with Himuro Kyousuke as his Lieutenant. Sōritsu was eventually killed by Himuro, who was in actuality a Battle Doll created by Averian, and then replaced by a Battle Doll. Sōritsu became Averian's pawn and retreated from public life, whilst Himuro took over the 6th Division Captaincy. Sōritsu, seeking a pawn to further his master's plan, closely monitored the Kuchiki Clan for centuries. He would eventually settle on Ryan Kuchiki and thus began moulding the latter into a suitable fusee, eventually performing this in-and-around the time of the Collapse. The Sōritsu-controlled Ryan thus became the Captain-Commander of the Gotei Remnant.

Appearance Edit


Sōritsu as an elderly man.

Sōritsu was an elderly man with long silvery-white hair and red-coloured eyes. The Battle Doll created in his likeness was intended to age to thus avoid suspicion, and Sōritsu grew frail as the centuries passed. By the time of the Collapse he was hunched over and was barely capable of walking more than a few metres without the aid of a walking stick, and thus employed a stationary form of combat when training Ryan. He was heavily wrinkled and was seen with a permanent scowl. As a direct result of his fusion wit Ryan, Sōritsu's appearance changed drastically following the Collapse, to the point he was completely unrecognisable compared to his former look. Garian notes that Sōritsu essentially turned back the clock: he now looks identical to what he looked like when he was in his prime. He now sports black-coloured hair, possesses a muscular and athletic body, and is no longer hunched over.
