Hanae Ishikawa is the 4th seat of the Ninth Division under Hikaru Kuroda, formerly under Kaname Tōsen . She's also a member of the noble family, Ishikawa.


Hanae looks like a teenage girl of average height. She wears a normal Shihakushō with no special decorations. However, she does wear an obi  instead of a regular white sash. She has hazel eyes and long, blonde hair. It is usually tied in a high ponytail. As a family tradition, she wears a rectangular hair clip with her family's insignia on it. This is placed just above her ponytail.


Although a member of a noble family, she tries to stay modest and not brag. But she often tells people of lower seat or not well known by her, to call her Miss Ishikawa (Ishikawa-san). Some people find the way she delivers bad, or even horrible news, strange. She can tell someone alarming news while still showing a smile.


Not much is known about Ishikawa's life prior to the story's timeline. One of the only known things is that she was born and raised into the Ishikawa Clan. It is also known that her parents passed away while Hanae was still at an early age. She entered the Shin'ō Academy around the same time as Rukia Kuchiki. Sometime after her parents death, her cousin Kiriko was promoted to Clan Head.

Special Shikai Ability: In Shikai, Ritsuzen has the ability to plunge an enemy into total darkness. It appears this way, but there is no kind of barrier. Ritsuzen is an illusion type and tricks someone into thinking it's dark. This allows Hanae to get them by surprise, as they cannot see anyone.
  • Bankai: Nejire Osoroshi (Twisting Horror): Since she is still training, she refuses to
