[edit] Character Information

Hinamori is a caring individual, who unlike many other soul reapers, despises fighting, preferring to solve things through other methods, preferably non-violent related ones. A childhood friend of Toushiro Hitsugaya, meaning she can't be too old. Hinamori's Zanpakutō, Tobiume's innitial release looks as if the blade straightens and produces several, jigged-like prongs along its length. In this form, Tobiume focuses Momo's spiritual energy, eventually turning it into many pink-colored energy bursts. These bursts of energy are capable of destroying whole floors and breaching walls. Hinamori can also compress her power into a single massive energy ball.

Hinamori grew up in Junrinan, District 1 of Rukongai, along with with close friend, as mentioned earlier, Tōshirō Hitsugaya. Hitsugaya was basically an overly self obsessive "Everything Is My Way" child, but Hinamori eventually began to like him, allowing the two to became close friends. Hinamori entered the shinigami academy, and was able to quickly excel at kidō, a form of combat used by Shinigami. At the academy, she met her fellow lieutenants(Later On) Kira and Renji, who soon became her friends. They were placed in the 5th Division of the Gotei 13 under Captain Aizen and his lieutenant, Gin Ichimaru. While Kira and Renji would later leave to other Divisions, Hinamori remained, and after hard work and sacrifice, she became the lieutenant of the 5th Division.

As for her fellow Soul Reapers, just about everyone likes her. She gets along with anybody she meets, and with her no violence under certain circumstances attitude, and quick witted ability, Hinamori would be a perfect fit for a Strategist. Although, one small feature may raise a problem. When upset, she can lose control, abandoning thoughts of peaceful resolution and non-violent attitudes. Hinamori has a pretty fair, ordinary appearance in the series, compared to some characters. She wears a standard shinigami robe and her dark hair is pulled into a bun held in a tied cloth. When in her shinigami robes, she wears the Fifth Division’s vice captain badge.

[edit] Powers & Abilities

[edit] Zanpakutō


Tobiume ("Flying Plum Tree") is a kidō type zanpakutō, which suits Momo well given her mastery of kidō. In its sealed form, Tobiume resembles a regular katana, the only difference being the five-petal design stamped onto the rectangular cross guard with a red handle.

  • Shikai: The release command for her shikai is "snap" (hajike). When Tobiume's shikai is activated, the blade straightens and three "jutte" like appendages appear along the length of the blade at various intervals.
    • Shikai Special Ability: While in its shikai, Tobiume is able to focus Momo's spritual power, compressing that energy into a spherical energy blasts that are capable of cratering floors and collapsing walls. Momo is also able to compress her energy into a fireball and throw them as projectiles from the tip of her blade.
  • Bankai: Not Yet Achieved.
