- "The Soul King was created by Soul Society to bring stability to the staggering, chaotic mass of traffic caused by souls travelling in and out."
- —Yhwach referencing the purpose given to the Kawahiru Clan.
The Kawahiru Clan (河昼一族, Kawahiru Ichizoku; Literally meaning "Kawahiru Family") is a family of Sōzōshin founded by Amenooshihi. Within Soul Society, they are known as the "Royal Family" (王室, Ōshitsu) after Tsuyuri Kawahiru had been chosen to become a concubine of the King of Souls in order to produce heirs. By tradition, the family has been charged with the running of Soul Society and it's well-being, serving as major decision-makers. After the death of her mother, the clan is presumably headed by Yukina Kawahiru. The Ryōdoji Clan is known to be a direct descendant of the Kawahiru family.
Founding of Soul Society
According to Hanzei Kurokami, the Kawahiru are the sole clan of Sōzōshin that are capable of manipulating boundaries and borders; of both the literal and the conceptual. What this power entails is currently unknown, as only a handful of Kawahiru throughout history have ever awoken this ability, let alone mastered it, but it is what allows them to transverse the dimensions, including that of Asadal, without the need of special assistance.
