"I used to be scared. The very thought of going into battle, harming another person, it made me freeze up. But I quickly learned that was no way to behave...relying on others to save me...trying to fight with a sheathed sword...I learned, and became strong. I'm ready to stand and fight!"

Tankahi Yokumoriki (翼蝠鬼-誕花妃, Regal Flower Princess of the Winged Bat Demon) is a Shinigami of the Gotei 13, and the 3rd Seat of the Eighth Division, serving under Captain Seishima Tsumaki. Due to her name, Tankahi is nicknamed "Hana" (花, Flower).


Tankahi's complete appearance

Tankahi bears the appearance of a teenage girl with grey eyes, and waist-length, burnt-orange hair. She has a slender, yet curvaceous figure, and her most notable physical aspect is her large breasts. Tankahi wears her Shihakushō (死覇装, Garment of Dead Souls) differently from other Shinigami, as she leaves the kosode open wide to reveal a considerable amount of her breasts, and, instead of hakama, she opted for a loose dress. In addition, she wears leggings as opposed to standard waraji. She also has four black vertical lines on her forearms and black, tattoo-like bands crossing over her large breasts, which seem to conceal her nipples, wrists, and ankles. Similar bands, but with white ends, are around her neck as collars.

100 years ago, Tankahi wore her hair tied up in the back of her head in a knot, yet enough of it hung loose so that it reached well down to her back, as well as two long locks on each side of her head. She had no bangs, clasping them behind her right ear instead. Her markings were noticeably different, consisting of three markings on each side that extend from her collarbone down to her breasts, and her collar lacked the middle white line.

Tankahi in a Gigai

In her Gigai, Tankahi appears as a normal young woman. The markings, as well as the various bands placed on her body, as they would look out of place to ordinary humans in the Material World. She often wears light, loose-fitting clothing, possibly for comfort and ease of fighting. Unlike many Shinigami, Tankahi is very well aware of how to fit in among humans, and is able to pick out attire that would look perfectly in place for the current century.


Tankahi is a kind, yet stern young woman; that is to say, that is to say that her traits are equally balanced. She comes off as independent, friendly, humorous, sensitive, caring and kind, more than willing to help those in need, and she does her best in anything she tries her hand at; though her results will vary. She's also demonstrated that she is perceptive when it comes to people's mental and emotional state; specifically that of her captain.

However, she does retain her modesty in front of everyone—and even though she is rather energetic, it can be said that she has a rather cool air about her, sometimes hiding her personal problems from those she cares about; but she has difficulty forming connections. Amusingly, Tankahi has a love of kittens; which results in almost any artistic activity she does turning out to appear similar to that of a kitten. 


Tankahi been a Shinigami for at least a century. During the beginning of her Shinigami career, Tankahi was inept, and was only the 10th Seat due to her poor performance and battle capability. She refused to fight at all if she could avoid it, even drawing her sword against Hollows he had to slay was something Tankahi refused to do out of an unwillingness to purposefully bring harm to another individual. Seishima Tsumaki, her Captain, called Tankahi into his office, and explained to the young Shinigami exactly what it meant to be a Shinigami, and why, despite her own pessismism, she was in every way qualified to be part of his divison, and to carry the title "Shinigami". This lecture would go on to inspire Tankahi and lead to her climbing up the ranks to Third Seat.

Powers & Abilities

High Spiritual Power: Tankahi is notably powerful for a 3rd Seat Shinigami, possessing a great amount of Spiritual Power, rivalling that of an inexperienced Lieutetant at her best, and still stronger than an average 3rd Seat at her worst. Her spiritual energy is coloured golden, however, it is said when she focuses her Zanpakutō's powers, her energy becomes light green.

Shunpo Expert: Tankahi is notably light on her feet, and is useful because of her speed. She is capable of using Shunpo to dodge multiple enemies from Hollows to Shinigami. 

Expert Swordsmanship Specialist: Tankahi is proficient enough with Zanjutsu to cross swords with Lieutenant-level Shinigami, despite only being a 3rd Seat. Confident enough in her skills however, Tankahi knows her own limits and is not foolish enough to take on a Captain if she doesn't have an advantage.

Kidō Expert: Tankahi is notably skilled in the art of Kidō, her area of expertise however lies in healing and barriers. This is not to say she lacks skill in the Way of Destruction; Tankahi can perform various manners of Kidō. Due to intensive practice, her barriers are very strong and can be combined to form new barriers as well. Tankahi is more than capable of performing Hadō spells up to the 30s, provided she speaks the proper incantation beforehand.


Tonrikka (六花, Winged Snow) is the name of Tankahi's Zanpakutō. When sealed, it takes the form of a tantō (短刀, "short sword"), with green hilt-wrappings and sheath. It's tsuba has two curved extensions from its long sides, with a line going through both sides to give it an eye-like appearance. Attached to these extensions on both sides are two six-pointed, blue star-like attachments.

  • Shikai: When activated with the command "I reject" (私は拒絶する, watashi wa kyozetsu suru); Tonrikka breaks down and becomes a javelin-like weapon; there is energy flowing off of each end in a fashion similar to flames, making it look more arrow-shaped.
  • Bankai: Not Yet Achieved.


  • Tankahi shares her physical appearance with Orihime, because, while Darkrai hates her, he finds her sexy.
  • Darkrai likes to toy with the idea that Tankahi is actually a deceased Orihime who became a Shinigami. This is most likely untrue, but he prefers the readers to mentally writhe over the possibilities.
  • Tankahi's nickname is named after Darkrai's girlfriend, Hanako. On the note of names, her name is meant to reference the pairing of UlquiHime.
    • Her Zanpakutō's sealed state only further references this, being a tantō version of Murciélago with Orihime's hair pins attached.
