Takagari Hasami (螯鷹狩り, Hasami Takagari) is the fourth seat of the Eighth Division.
Takagari is rather average looking. She has long black hair, though it has a blue tint to it, dark blue eyes. She wears the average Shinigami shihakushō and black hakama with white tabi. She wears her Zanpakutō on her waist, tied to her obi, like traditional Shinigami.
Takagari is a confident individual and a major member of the Eighth Division. Raian Getsueikirite, the captain of the division, has noted that, more than any other division member, she is the one he trusts most, not only because she has served in the division longer than any other current member, but because she has proven her loyalty again and again. She is also a highly knowledgeable person, accomplishing this because of her tenet to always "keep up with the times" so that she isn't caught off guard.
Takagari also has a rather comical side to her as well. She is somewhat like a big sister to the rest of the division's members, and therefore, often bickers with them like a sister would; none more so than the division's lieutenant, Kujaku Kuchiki. She is also obsessed with cute things and becomes personally insulted whenever someone insults something she finds to be cute.
She is a very loyal and trustworthy individual, who deeply cares for her comrades in the Eighth Division, which is why Raian selected her for her seat. She even goes so far as to say that the Eighth Division is more family to her than her actual family was. She has shown great respect for Captain Raian's leadership.
Takagari's past is shrouded in mystery up until she joined the Eighth Division. She joined while Shunsui Kyōraku was still the reigning captain, but remained loyal under Seireitou and Tāore. She was later promoted to fourth seat by Raian, the current captain.
