  • Artist Info: NAME: Rukia Kuchiki<br />
    SPECIES: Soul Reaper<br />
    AFFILIATION: Ichigo Kurosaki<br />
    ZANPAKUTO: Sode no Shirayuki<br />
    <br />
    Rukia died as an infant and was sent to Soul Society with her older sister, Hisana. As Rukia grew up, she befriended Renji Abarai. Rukia was adopted into the Kuchiki family. When she was accepted into the 13th Division, Rukia's abilities made her a prime candidate for a seated position. In time, Rukia befriended the lieutenant of her division, Kaien Shiba, and trained under him. During the course of a mission Kaien was possessed by a hollow and Rukia was forced to kill Kaien to protect herself.<br />
    <br />
    Because she immediately killed Kaien without first trying to find a way to help him, Rukia convinces herself that she valued her own life over his. The only solace she is able to find in his death is the belief that she saved him from a hollow's control. This guilt-ridden attitude carries over to her relationship with Ichigo Kurosaki; when Rukia is taken into custody and Ichigo is gravely wounded in an attempt to save her, she assumes that he dies of his injuries. Feeling that Ichigo's death would have been avoided had she never met him, Rukia loses her reason for living and resigns herself to her sentenced execution.<br />
    <br />
    Rukia's relationship with Ichigo is unique, for despite the relatively short amount of time they have known each other, Ichigo can easily confide in her and considers her a true friend because she is encouraging and understands what he is feeling.<br />
