Lisa Yadōmaru is a member of the Visored that are capable of Hollowfication, and she was the former lieutenant of the 8th Division in the Gotei 13.
110 years ago in the Soul Society, Lisa was the Lieutenant of the 8th Division of the Gotei 13, under Captain Shunsui Kyoraku. She was a strict though eccentric lieutenant who would keep her captain prompt by groping him to wake him up, and not shy about sharing that fact with others to embarrass him.
Some ten years later, she was also very close with one of the 8th Division youngest members, a young girl named Nanao Ise. On the first night of every month, Nanao would come to visit Lisa, so she could read to her. In was on one of these nights that Lisa was spying on the Captains meeting about the 9th Division that had gone missing. They were deciding on who they would send to investigate, and Captain Shunsui, who knew she was eavesdropping, called out to request she join the search part with several of the other lieutenants and captains.
The search party arrived after Captain Shinji Hirako to find him battling a hollowfied Kensei Muguruma, the Captain of the 9th Division. Kensei was in a mad rage, and none wanted to kill their ally. Lisa and Captain Rōjūrō Ōtoribashi planned to use their swords to cut his tendons to immobilize him without killing him, but Rojuro was attacked from behind by a hollowfied Lieutenant Mashiro Kuna. She was inadvertently fighting Kensei alone and was easily outmatched. Rojuro stopped Kenei with a Kido blast, and the chaos only increased when Lieutenant Hiyori Sarugaki suddenly fell under the hollow infection.
The rescue party is enveloped in darkness by Kaname Tousen and cut down. He was aiding Lieutenant Sousuke Aizen, the true villain behind this horror. Lisa and the other search party members began to hollowfy, but were saved from death by Captain Kisuke Urahara and Kido Corp's Tessai Tsukabishi. Aizen and his allies escaped, and Lisa was transported to the 12 Division's base with the rest of the casualties.
Before Kisuke could start working out a way to save them, both he and Tessai were arrested by the Central 46 and charged with being the culprit who attacked them. Lisa and the other hollowfied Soul Reapers were sentenced to be put to death immediately. They were saved by Captain Yoruichi Shihoin and brought to a secret hiding place while she also rescued Kisuke and Tessai. They were all taken to the Human World so they could hide. It's unknown how long it took Urahara to help Lisa and the others. They weren't cured, but were able to regain their personalities and control their Hollowfication. At some point, the group separated from Urahara and went into hiding on their own in Karakura Town to form the Visored.

Lisa enjoys reading pornography and boasts confidently that she reads some twice every day, and she even loans some to her fellow Visoreds when they ask. She also tried to get Ichigo to borrow some during his training with them. During her time in a lieutenant, she would go so far as to eavesdrop on private meetings.
Birthday: February 3
Height: 162 cm (5'4")
Weight: 52 kg (114 lbs.)
After being abandoned by the Gotie 13, Lisa and the other Visored look to the Soul Reapers as their enemy, but still feel they own a great deal of gratitude toward Urahara for trying to save them. They mostly likely kept hidden before to avoid being tracked down and killed. During the battle against Aizen, she went to see her former captain and does still show some respect or loyalty to him. When he told her he was happy she was safe, she simply just called him and idiot and returned to battle. It's unknown where Lisa and the rest of the Visored are after the events of the war.
Lisa was among her Visored members at their warehouse hideout in Karakura Town when Ichigo Kurosaki came to them. He rejected their offer to join them and thought he could use them to train to control his inner Hollow. Shinji Hirako fought Ichigo while Lisa and the others watched. They could tell Ichigo was holding back out of fear of his Hollow. It was Hiyori Sarugaki who stepped in to make it clear that he had to prove to them he was worthy of joining them, or he would left to be overcome by his Hollow. Ichigo and Hiyori fought until his mask appeared, but he went insane and tried to kill Hiyori. Lisa and the other Visored together pounced and pinned him to the ground.
Ichigo then started the training on some of their special equipment, but Lisa was more interested in reading her erotica than watching over him. He lost his patience with the process, so he was brought into the secret underground room of the warehouse and placed into Hachigen Ushoda's barriers. Lisa was the first to enter the barrier to fight the hollowfied Ichigo. They were fighting his physical body, while he battled his inner hollow. Lisa held off Ichigo long enough but her right arm was injured. She was brought out, and each of the Visored went in turn. Lisa was preparing to kill Ichigo on her next turn when he managed to break free of the hollow.
During the training, they were visited by a friend of Ichigo, Orihime Inoue. She had managed to both track him and walk through Hachi's barriers. A month passed, and Lisa didn't take part in Ichigo's physical training. She spent her time reading ero-manga. Later, she teased him at his lack of improvement. She openly admit to frequently try to loan him some of her porn. She considered that her contribution, and he denied accepting it. Ichigo left their training to go after Orihime, who was abducted by Sosuke Aizen's forces to Hueco Mundo.
The Visored managed to escape being transported to the Soul Society with the rest of the real Karakura Town. The Gotei 13 realized Aizen's goal was to destroy Karakura Town and it's people to create a copy of the King's Key. A fake copy of the city was put in it's place. They sat in hiding and waited for their chance to strike while Aizen and his Espada fought the Soul Reapers from the Soul Society.
Just as things were looking their worst for the Gotei 13, Lisa and the Visored made their appearance into the battle. Not to help them as much as it was to fight Aizen and help Ichigo. Lisa found Captain Shunsui on the ground, but she kicked him in the head to tell to stop playing dead. He told her how he was glad she was alright, but she simply called him an idiot and returned to the Visored. When Aizen summoned several Gillian hollows, Lisa and the others summoned their hollow masks. Lisa sliced the giant head of one with her sword to destroy it in an instant.
Lisa then turned to stop Tier Halibel from striking Captain Toshiro Hitsugaya from behind. While Hitsugaya and Hiyori bickered, Lisa moved in on the Tres Espada alone. Lisa released her zanpakuto's shikai form, then she was joined by Hiyori and Hitsugaya. Their battle was interrupted when Aizen attacked Teir from behind.
Once Ichigo arrived from Hueco Mundo, Lisa and the uninjured Soul Reapers combined forces against Aizen. Shinji explained that only Ichigo can defeat Aizen since he's never fallen under Aizen's hypnosis before. When she tries to strike Aizen with the others, he slices her zanpakuto in half before and strikes her to the ground before she can even touch him. She isn't too seriously injured, but stayed to watch other Hiyori till she can get medical treatment. Ichigo managed to win against Aizen, but lost all of his Soul Reaper powers in the process. Lisa and the rest of the Visored have not been seen since.
Lisa possesses exceptional skill and power as a lieutenant in the Gotei 13. Captain Shunsui even had great faith in her strength. Her skills in swordsmanship are advanced, and she still remains able to be highly agile. The advantage of hollowfication gives her an incredible boost in power that ho other Soul Reapers can.
The process of Hollowfication is a unique ability that was a side effect of one of Aizen's experiments on Soul Reapers. It gives the user the ability to summon a Hollow mask that greatly increases all their attributes. Their spiritual pressure, strength, and speed are all augmented. The training to control hollowfication is not easy, as it requires a person to tame their inner hollow before it can be controlled; then the use of the mask is limited by time.
The shape of the mask is unique to each person. Lisa's mask is in a smooth diamond-shape with a cross-shaped slit in the center. While wearing this mask, only her left eye can be seen from the outside. To counter the time limit they have with the mask, Lisa only uses it in short bursts while fighting.
The Zanpakuto of Lisa Yadomaru is named the Haguro Tonbo (鉄漿蜻蛉), which translates to, "Iron Drink Damselfly". The zanpakuto is capable of two transformations that display a swords unique skills and transform in shape. They can become larger or smaller and have a unique skill. Lisa's transforms to a giant spear she uses with incredible skill and speed.
The sealed form is the first stage of the zanpakuto. In this form it merely appears as an elegantly crafted katana with a long blade and slight curve. The guard is formed in a rectangular-shape formed of two squares and two smaller rectangles. The handle is wrapped in dark-blue cloth. This is the form that Lisa primarily uses in combat.
The Shikai is the first released stage of the zanpakuto. It's in this form that the zanpakuto takes on a unique form and all have some form of special ability. The release command for Lisa's zanpakuto is "Smash" (潰せ, tsubuse). Her Shikai combines both her sword and the scabbard. The blade has a massive increase in size to form a giant spear with a turquoise shaft and a spaded-blade at the point. The shikai special ability has yet to be seen
