Hachigen is a large, rounded man with unusual pink hair and mustache. On the top of his head he has a black crossbone design, and he wears a green jacket with a shirt and a yellow bow tie. When he was a Shinigami, he wore a Purple gown over regular Shinigami robes.
Hachigen is a kind, gentle man who is quiet most of the time and doesn't speak often.
He enjoys Inoue Orihime's company as her mysterious power resembles that of his own.
Hachigen is a master of Kidou techniques and can use many high-level spells without the incantation. He also posesses power like Inoue Orihime, as he is able to make barriers and "reverse" time to heal injuries. He has also been seen with a Zanpakutō, however he has never been seen using it, most likely he prefers to fight with his high level Kidou abilities.
Hachigen was once the Lieutenant of the Kidou Corps serving under Tessai Tsukabishi. However this all changed when Hachigen was sent out on a mission to find out what had happened to Kensei and the other Shinigami who were investigating the disappearences of souls. It was actually all Aizen's fault with his hollowfication experiments, and he also hollowfied the Shinigami that were sent to investigate, and as a result Hachigen and all the other present Vizard were banished to the real world because the Gotei 13 never knew this and thought that they gained hollow powers on their own accord.
