Ichika Abarai (阿散井苺花, Abarai Ichika) is a Shinigami apprentice in the Gotei 13. She is the daughter of Rukia Kuchiki and Renji Abarai.[1][2]


Ichika is a young girl with bright red hair inherited from her father, which is bound with a white ribbon in a high spiky ponytail at the back. Her face resembles that of her mother, most notably her large violet eyes. She wears a standard black Shinigami uniform.[2]


Ichika is a confident child, willing to wander off without her parents' knowledge. Her mother indicated that she was prone to getting into fights. She greets Kazui Kurosaki by pointing her Zanpakutō at him while introducing herself. Ichika is easily shocked when something unexpected occurs, such as when Kazui reveals himself to be a Shinigami.[2] Ichika is fond of her father, but dislikes monsters.[3]

Ichika is born to Renji Abarai and Rukia Kuchiki less than ten years after Yhwach's defeat. She later becomes a Shinigami apprentice and is given permission to visit the Human World with her parents during the Bon Festival.[1] However, Ichika abandons her parents as they come to Ichigo Kurosaki's house, and transports herself to a dark orb in front of Kazui Kurosaki. Ichika introduces herself to Kazui and asks who he is, and Kazui reveals that he is also a Shinigami, to her shock.[2]

Powers and Abilities
