Ashido Kanō (狩能 雅忘人, Kanō Ashido) is a Shinigami of the Ryū Order, formerly of the Gotei 13, who had once been entrapped in Hueco Mundo. He led the Order's operations within Hueco Mundo and answered directly to Kusaka Kori, whilst employing Naibu Shizuka as his second-in-command. He later accepted a mission from Kenji Hiroshi to keep an eye on his son when the latter left Horiwari on a quest of self-discovery, where he eventually helped the young man rescue Akiye from the clutches of the Imawashī. Following the Collapse Ashido, once again partnering Naibu, became trapped in Hueco Mundo, and was thought to have perished when the backlash ripped through the realm. He survived, ironically, through the intervention of Averian, who kept the damage inflicted to his home to a minimum, though Naibu perished. He rejoined the survivors when he came upon Sanada Shirono and Shūhei Hisagi scouting Hueco Mundo and left with them. Since his escape he once more pledged his allegiance to Kentaro and has become the Second main instructor of the restored Shinō Academy where he taught advanced Yuengiri applications alongside Shiju Shūdō.

Behind the Scenes
He was originally set to appear in the manga during the Hueco Mundo Arc, but had to be cut by series creator Tite Kubo due to time issues.
The pictures of Ashido's Shikai and Bankai were drawn by Arrancarfighter on Deviantart. All credit for the pictures goes to him, along with my thanks for allowing me to use them. The new picture of his Bankai, however, was drawn by Rtenzo on deviantart, who lot me use. Thanks go to both artists.
The color of his reiatsu, though, was put together with help from N's Fanon reiatsu blog.
