The Ninth Division in the Gotei 13 was formed over 1,000 years ago by Shutara Senjumaru, who later went on to join the Royal Guard. At one pont the Captain became Kensei Muguruma, who started the Muguruma Commando Unit, which specializes in combination, syncronized attacks while on missions. The unit was wipped out during the Turn Back the Pendulum Arc. After the end of the Thousand Year Blood War, the Kami Uroko Goldsmith became the new Captain. The Lieutenant is Shuhei Hisagi.
