Kikyo Kurayama (暗暗桔梗, Kurayama Kikyo, "bellflower under a darkening sky") is currently the 5th seated officer of the Eight division of the Gotei 13, and the sister Nichihare Kurayama, who is the captain of the Fifth Division. Her captain is Hokōra Shimura, and she is very proud to serve under her.



Kikyo strongly believes that female shinigami can be as strong as a male ninja. Kikyo's personal dream is to become as strong as her captain, Hokōra Shimura. She can be quite fierce sometimes, especially with Nichihare, reacting violently whenever she thinks he's to lazy. Kikyo also has shown a strong distaste for weakness or being overly dependent on other people. Despite this, she is not above showing a softer side when it comes to her teammates.




Yūkichōkō (勇気兆候, Sign of Courage) is the name of Kikyo's Zanpakutō. in it's sealed form, it resembles an average katana, with a red hilt, decorated with black ribbons and with a round crossguard. Kikyo wears Yūkichōkō on her hip, in a red sheath.

  • Shikai: Yūkichōkō's Shikai is released by the command "Show Them" (それらを見る, Sorera wo miru). During it's release, Yūkichōkō will glow with reiatsu, and will shrink to a wakizashi. This is quite unusual for a shikai, as most become larger. Kikyo has stated that Yūkichōkō is the most elegant of all Zanpakutō, but what she exactly means by this is unknown.
Shikai Special Ability: Yūkichōkō has the power to heat up anything it comes in contact with, only Kikyo is immune to this effect. When clashing with another's Zanpakutō, Yūkichōkō can heat it to the point that the opponent has to back down, or drop his blade. It can even melt the blade of others if they do not posses enough reiatsu. This is also highly effective against water- and ice-based Zanpakutō, where it can just evaporate or melt the attacks. When it hits the opponent, Yūkichōkō can cause third degrees wounds when the contact is long enough, or even completely melt away the skin. However, even Yūkichōkō can become overheated over time, forcing Kikyo to re-seal it. If not, Yūkichōkō himself will melt and thus become useless.
  • Heat Absorption: Yūkichōkō can also draw out heat from her surroundings to supplement her attacks, or to simply negate and nullify fire-based attacks or abilities similar to her own.
