Tomu Kurai (トムダーク, Tomudāku) is the captain of the Fifth Division in the Gotei 13. He is a powerful Shinigami and is well respected within the Gotei 13. His lieutenant was Momo Hinamori.


Tomu's appearance is a mild-featured man with brown scholarly hair enhanced by square glasses, his eye colour is green but his artificial eye is a dark greenish colour. He wears the standard Shinigami uniform with a captain's haori. When relaxing he takes off his captains haori and glasses. He has been told on occasion by his 3rd Seat, Roydon Mashūzu that is appearance has a soothing effect on her. His lieutenant says that when he becomes serious its almost like he changes into another person.


Tomu is a laid back man, but is not always he is shown to be serious and takes everything with a laid back serious tone. He always refers to others by the first name regardless of how long he has known them. He is always friendly towards other and is eager to lend and hand to others in his squad. His relationship with his lieutenant is that of a mentor and student, which he always reminds him of. With his seated officers he is more relaxed around them and others advice and sometimes aid. He is close towards Momo and always gives her books to read and they regularly meet to talk.

When fighting he always is serious but always throws in a few jokes and laid back moments to lightning the mood. He treats his opponents with the up most respect, to the point he offered to stop the battle because Nigami badly injured due to his attack and was disappointed when she continued her attack, he showed remorse over he death but he called he stupid for not listening. When fighting Majū he became angry at Aizen when he figured out what the beast was before Aizen created it and apologized to it before dealing the killing blow.


134 years before the start of the series Tomu lost his right eye in a sparring match with Aizen, he later got a artificial eye created by Kisuke Urahara. 110 years before the start of the series, Tom was the Lieutenant of the 5th Division under Shinji Hirako. Shinji enjoyed having Tom as his lieutenant and was always surprised at his growth. At this point Tomu became suspicious of Shinji's 3rd Seat, Aizen, due to his artificial eye he was able to see past the illusions cast by Aizen's Kyōka Suigetsu. He reported this to Shinji who attempted to keep an eye on Aizen. Also during this time Shinji allowed Tom to see his Shikai and Bankai. During the investigation into the disappearance of Rukongai citizens he achieved Bankai. When Aizen infected Shinji and the others Tomu knew what had happened thanks to Kisuke Urahara. Years after the incident he and Aizen competed for the Captaincy of the 5th Division, Tomu eventually won and kept Aizen as the 1st seat for years until Aizen became the captain of the 3rd Division.

Three Months before the start of the series, Aizen betrayed the Soul Society and took his lieutenant with him as well as Kaname Tosen the 9th Division Captain. Tom battled Aizen before he left for Hueco Mundo, the battle was interrupted by the Menos Grandes Negación. Sometime after this Momo was killed by a powerful Hollow.
