Clan Structure


Clan Relics

  • Kenseikan (牽星箝, Star-Pulling Insert): Members of the Kuchiki family have been known to wear Kenseikan in their hair, which symbolizes their nobility as one of Four Noble Families.
  • Kuchiki Clan Scarf: The Kuchiki family also has a white scarf made by the master weaver, Tsujishirō Kuroemon III. The scarf is made from the Ginpaku Kazahana no Uzuginu (銀白風花の紗, Silks of the Silverwhite Wildflower), a silver-white, windflower light silk, and is a family heirloom that is handed down from generation to generation and is given to each Kuchiki family head. The scarf alone is worth enough to buy ten mansions in the Seireitei.[2][3]
