Shizuku (しずく, Shizuku)[1] is the younger brother of Homura. His name was given to him by Rukia Kuchiki.[2]


Shizuku has shoulder-length black hair that usually falls on his face and covers his right eye and lavender eyes. He is very lean and pale, and wears a white ragged kimono that exposes part of his chest and a yellow belt around his waist and no footwear. Like Homura, his Reiatsu is also black with dark purple outline.[2]

Shizuku's scythe becomes the weapon of choice for Dark Rukia.[2]


He is a rather unimpressed, melancholic individual. He has a deep hatred for Shinigami due to having been assaulted by one (possessed by a Hollow) and being forced to live in Hueco Mundo for a hundred years. He is also shown to be intelligent and with a deep understanding of people's emotions like when Homura lets her powers become berserk in response to Rukia's remembrance of Ichigo Kurosaki. He understood his sister's feelings and disregarded the fact that Rukia would disappear if they fused in order to stay together forever with his sister and Rukia.[2]


He and Homura were children born with unique teleporting capability in the 78th district of Rukongai, Inuzuri, who were taken care for some time by Rukia. At one point, they were assaulted by a Shinigami who had become possessed by a Hollow that could possess souls and erase memories. In order to save Rukia, they had to absorb the Hollow into themselves, and were subsequently teleported into Hueco Mundo, where they eventually forced the Hollow inside themselves into submission.[2]


Shizuku fights with Ichigo.

They returned about a hundred years later to Seireitei, wanting to know their names that Rukia had promised to give them. While Homura distracted Rukia, Shizuku slashed her with his scythe, erasing her memories and in turn causing everyone else to forget everything about her as well. They try to get Rukia to remember their names, even going so far as to lie in order to keep her on their side. However, they fail when Homura's tongue slips and Rukia learns that she was indeed once a Shinigami. Homura lets her powers go berserk when she realizes that Rukia was starting to remember Ichigo. Homura and Shizuku wanted to be together with Rukia forever so they fuse with Rukia into a Hollow-like twisted form of Rukia.[2]


Shizuku and Homura in their last moments.

As Dark Rukia, they gain an upper hand over Ichigo, but Ichigo eventually finds a way to defeat them without hurting Rukia: giving her his own Shinigami powers and thus separating her from the siblings as well as destroying the Hollow within. In his last moments, he begs Rukia not to blame his sister too much, and when christened by Rukia as Shizuku and reminded that the very most precious person to him was the one right next to him, none other than his sister, he, very content with his name, passes away happily.[2]



Shizuku wielding the scythe.

Hollow Scythe: Shizuku wields a double-edged red scythe that is taller than him. The scythe itself originally manifested in the form of a small, weak Hollow that had a scythe-like tail used to erase an enemy's memories. Some time after the Hollow merged with the siblings and they were transported to Hueco Mundo the scythe was created and used by Shizuku. As with the Hollow that created the weapon, the weapon can phase through targets and weapons without physically damaging them; any person who the weapons phases through has their memories erased, and Shizuku can control specific memories as opposed to erasing all of it.[2]

Powers & Abilities[]

Expert Scythe User: Shizuku wields a double-edged red scythe taller than himself with great ease and skill. He also has the ability to make the scythe pass through other weapons as if they were thin air.[2]

Teleportation: Shizuku has the unique ability to teleport in order to counterattack his opponents, which is different from either Flash Step or Sonído. He disappears and reappears with a swish of black smoke when he performs this.[2]

Hollowfication: Shizuku shares an unnamed ability alongside Homura to fuse with each other in a self-induced Hollowfication with Rukia, after the latter experienced an emotional breakdown when she "wished" Rukia and Shizuku will become "one".
