Jigokuchō

A Hell Butterfly
Jigokuchō (地獄蝶, hell butterfly) are completely black in colour that can serve a variety of purpose. They can be used to guide the Shinigami through the Senkaimon when travelling between Soul Society and the Human World (Somtimes referred to as The Real World), this saves time and the need for a Shinigami to travel through the Dangai. Hell Butterflies can also be used as a communication device to send and receive messages between and to other Shinigami, often these messages are important orders. These butterflies are bred and raised in Seireitei, the latter usually being the case with new or inexperienced Shinigami of the Gotei 13. Much like Shinigami, Hell butterflies are only visible to those that are "Spiritually Aware".
