The mysterious owner of the Urahara Shop. Former captain of the 12th Division of the Gotei 13 and former president of the Shinigami Research and Development Institute
In it's unreleased form, Kisuke's zanpakuto is a concealed sword within a walking cane, otherwise known as a shikomizue ("prepared cane"). It has been modified to include a symbol at the base of the cane that allows him to force a Shinigami's soul form from it's earthly body or gigai.
Kisuke's zanpakuto is named Benihime and is is concealed inside of his cane when he is just out and about. When he
reveals Benihime he usually releases her to her second form, a flat bladed sword with a flat point, a hilt that is short and close to the blade, and a short rope tied to the end. When revealed Kisuke can use several attacks that give his zanpakuto some reach beyond it'sd physical ability. Some is done when he urges Benihime to "scream". During these attacks Benihime release a wall of blood red energy that can be shot at an opponent to do damagae, or form a shield between Kisuke and his attacker.
Released when Kisuke utters the words"OKIRO" ('Awaken Now').
In this form, Kisuke's zanpakuto's blade becomes wider with a curved hilt. It's two known special abilities. The first is that it
can create a shield that protects those behind it from damage and secondly it is capable of firing a crimson coloured energy blast that is very similar to a cero in terms of power. Shikai Special Ability: It lies in the manipulation of blood. These ablities are activated by the verbal command "Sing".
Blood Mist Shield: Benihime's defensive ability forms an oval-shaped "blood mist shield" in front of Urahara. The barrier is able to block Ichigo's first use of his Getsuga Tenshō while only slightly eroding, after Urahara comments that he would have lost an arm were it not for the shield .
Kisuke is a Captain class Shinigami and it is confirmed he has the ability of using a Bankai. Learnt by using his own three day method, we have yet to witness it. It has been vaguely referenced throught the Manga and anime.
