Izuru Kira is one of the supporting characters of Bleach. He is the lieutenant of the 3rd Division in the Gotei 13, formerly under Captain Gin Ichimaru and currently under Captain Rōjūrō Ōtoribashi.
He graduated the Soul Reaper Academy along with Renji and Hinamori and was later assigned under Gin Ichimaru. After Ichimaru's betrayal, he occasionally joins Matsumoto in drinking sessions.
His Zanpakuto is Wabisuke, a strange L-hook-shaped katana with the sharp edge of the blade on the inside of the hook. It doubles the weight of anything it strikes and its peculiar shape makes it ideal for framing a person's neck to behead them.
Kira started off as a friendly and somewhat cocky cadet in the Spiritual Arts Academy. Come present time, although pragmatic in combat, he's gloomy, introspective, worrisome and indecisive, which leads to several areas of conflict between himself and his friends. Once we see him in the Blood War arc, he's far less moody and a lot more analytical, making him appear generally more of a leader amongst the other lieutenants.
