* '''High Intellect:''' This is arguably the most fearsome thing about Aizen.

Sōsuke Aizen is the former captain of the 5th Division in the Gotei 13 and the primary antagonist of Bleach. His lieutenant was initially Gin Ichimaru, who was succeeded by Momo Hinamori after the aforementioned's promotion to 3rd Division captain. After defecting from Soul Society, he and his accomplices Gin and 7th Division captain Kaname Tōsen migrated to Hueco Mundo where he raised an army of arrancars using the Hōgyoku he stole from Kisuke Urahara. Aizen has often been revered by fans and critics of Bleach as one of the best, most unexpected antagonists in anime and manga.

Appearance

Aizen is an average sized, clean shaven man with dark brown hair and eyes. While he resided in Soul Society, Aizen had his hair covering much of his forehead and wore glasses, making him appear harmless. He regularly wore his shihakusho with his division's emblem on his shoulder while serving as 5th Division lieutenant, and later on with a white haori when serving as 5th Division captain. Upon defecting from Soul Society, he styles his hair back and stops wearing his glasses, giving him a much more moderate appearance.
