Izaru Kurosawa (黒沢 躄る, Kurosawa Izaru) is a Shinigami who, despite his affiliations to the Seireitei's militia, does not belong to any single military force. Rather, he acts as a liason between all of the major factions of Seireitei: the Gotei 13, Kidō Corps, Onmitsukidō and Shinigami Research and Development Institute. He was chosen for this role primarily due to his exceptional work as a messenger and intelligence agent during his time as a criminal in the Rukongai, keeping the entirety of his gang members elusive from the glances of the Seireitei until a Captain was sent to deal with the gang, sending the majority of the gang members to jail except for Izaru, who was kept on probation by the Central 46 after reviewing the potential the man possessed.
Izaru bears the appearance of a surprisingly youthful, almost docile young man despite his origins as a criminal within the Rukongai. Izaru possesses boyish features, as made apparent through his somewhat round face and mellowed out facial features, particularly concerning his nose and lips. His hair is shaded a light brown, kept relatively trimmed and naturally straight, hence why it obscures a small portion of his forehead. Over his brown eyes he wears a pair of rectangular spectacles, which are noted to have been developed by the S.R.D.I for long-ranged tracking.
In terms of attire, Izaru distinguishes himself from the average Shinigami. Given that he has no real affiliation to any of the four major factions of Seireitei, Izaru is noted to wear a mixture of the attire worn by all. He is seen wearing a long, black trenchcoat with several golden buttons going down his torso. Underneath this trench coat is a black, sleeveless kosode and an associated black hakama. Around his waist, to both fasten the attire together and holster his various equipment is a brown belt, with a large satchel on the left side of Izaru's waist that holds numerous compartments. Finally, as footwear, Izaru wears black steel-capped boots which, despite being somewhat heavy, enable potent protection against most bladed weapons. On colder days or in colder areas, it is shown that Izaru will wear a silver scarf over this attire.
