A rogue Shinigami of immense power, Kageroza is the leader of the invading Reigai forces that used doppelgangers to infiltrate the Gotei 13 and throw it into total disarray.
To escape persecution from the Gotei 13 and prevent the destruction of his research related to Project Spearhead and Reigai, Ouko Yushima split his soul into two separate entities: Kageroza Inaba and Nozomi Kujo. After doing so, Ouko became a soulless shell while Kageroza and Nozomi integrated themselves into Soul Society, allowing Kageroza to become the 7th seat of the 12th Division of the Gotei 13 and head of the Precipice World Research Section of the Scientific Research and Development Institute.
