Name: Toshirou Hitsugaya
Occupation: Soul Reaper
Rank: Captain of 10th Division
Despite his almost childlike exterior, Toshiro Hitsugaya, captain of the 10th division in Gotei 13 is one whose looks belie his solemn nature. Apparently his facial features don’t seem too capable of smiling. Not that we blame him, since Ichigo the Ignoramus keeps calling him ‘kiddo’. Despite that, Toshirou ’s formidable skills as a shinigami hardly fail to remind others the danger of undermining his abilities. Then again, it wouldn’t hurt if he took a few pointers from his bubbly vice-captain Matsumoto on how to jump around, grin and act like an idiot every once in awhile.
Hitsugaya’s zanpakuto (Hyorinmaru) is probably also one of the coolest around, since his ability to manipulate water and ice makes him so reminiscent of Marvel Comic’s Ice Man- only maybe a little less impressive in the specs department. But when released in the form of a dragon-like creature made of ice that merges with Hitsugaya’s physical form, not even Ice man comes close to being comparable to this child prodigy.
