The '''Noble Houses''' of Soul Society have an unclear role in the culture, social and governmental aspects of that dimensions existence. The Four Noble Families carry the most weight and appear to have some influence over the governmental institutions (i.e. [[Central 46|Central 46 Chambers]]) and even institutions outside of the government (i.e. [[Shin'ō Academy]]). The military (i.e. [[Gotei 13]], [[Kidō Corps]] & [[Onmitsukidō]]) have no authority to act against a noble family without evidence that their actions are treasonous to [[Soul Society]].

There is reason to believe that the captaincy of the [[6th Division]] runs in the Kuchiki family, as at least two members, both of them were family heads, have held the title captain and two other known members have been lieutenant and 3rd seat respectively. Members of the Kuchiki family have been known to wear {{translation|'''''Kenseikan'''''|牽星箝|lit. "Star-Pulling Insert"}} in their hair, which symbolizes their nobility as one of Four Noble Families. The Kuchiki family also has a white scarf made by the master weaver, Tsujishirō Kuroemon III. The scarf is made from the {{translation|'''''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.<ref>''Bleach'' Official Character Book Souls, page 188</ref> By tradition, the family has been charged with compiling and protecting the history of Soul Society.<ref>''Bleach'' anime; Episode 88</ref> The family resides in the [[Kuchiki Family Manor]].

Revision as of 07:07, January 10, 2020

The Noble Houses of Soul Society have an unclear role in the culture, social and governmental aspects of that dimensions existence. The Four Noble Families (四大貴族, Yondai Kizoku; lit. "Four Great Noble Families") carry the most weight and appear to have some influence over the governmental institutions (i.e. Central 46 Chambers) and even institutions outside of the government (i.e. Shin'ō Academy). The military (i.e. Gotei 13, Kidō Corps & Onmitsukidō) have no authority to act against a noble family without evidence that their actions are treasonous to Soul Society.

Four Noble Families

Shihōin Clan

Shihōin family seal

Shihōin Family Emblem

By tradition, the head of the Shihōin family leads the Onmitsukidō. Also known as the Tenshiheisōban (天賜兵装番, House of Godly Gears)[1], they are the Caretakers of the Hōgu (宝具, lit. "Treasure Tool") and Bugu (武具, lit. "War Tool") said to have been bestowed on them by the gods.[2]

Kuchiki Clan

Kuchiki family seal

Kuchiki Family Emblem

Members of the Kuchiki family have been known to wear Kenseikan (牽星箝, lit. "Star-Pulling Insert") in their hair, which symbolizes their nobility as one of Four Noble Families. 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.[3] By tradition, the family has been charged with compiling and protecting the history of Soul Society.[4] The family resides in the Kuchiki Manor.
