Template:Bleach Wiki:Character Template (Shinigami) Unnamed Kyōraku was the eldest son of the Kyōraku family. He married the head of the Ise family. He was the father of Nanao Ise and brother of Shunsui Kyōraku.


He had dark hair, shoulder-length hair and thick eyebrows. He wore the standard Shinigami Shihakushō.[1]


Prior to his marriage, he did not get on very well with his younger brother, Shunsui. However, after this he mellowed and the brothers came to be on better terms with each other.[2] He told Shunsui that he has become more calm and content due to the influence of his wife.[3]


At some point he married the head of the Ise family. She gave one of her hairpins to him, explaining that it made her feel safe knowing that he had the other one while she was performing her duties as a Shinigami.[3] He subsequently died of an illness.[4] On his deathbed, he entrusted his wife's pin-wheel hairpin to Shunsui.[5]


  • (To Shunsui Kyōraku) "It's not like I made a conscious effort to change. But if it looks like I've grown calm and content, it's only because her kindness is finally beginning to show through on me."[6]
