Tokinada Tsunayashiro (綱彌代時灘, Tsunayashiro Tokinada) is the head of the Tsunayashiro Clan, one of the Four Great Noble Houses of the Soul Society, despite being born into a branch family of the clan. He is responsible for both the death of his wife, Kakyō and the more recent Tsunayashiro Clan Massacre.

Tokinada Tsunayashiro

Tokinada's full appearance.

Tokinada is a tall and thin young man. Part of his silver-gray hair is braided close to the crown on the left side.[1] He wears what appear to be the noble robes of his clan over a standard shihakkushō.

Personality

History

Tokinada married Kakyō, the friend of Kaname Tōsen. Some time later, he killed her for after she rebuked him for killing a comrade. Because of his status within the Tsunayashiro Clan, Tokinada was never charged for the murder(s) despite being from a branch family. He attended Kakyō's funeral where he was first seen by Tōsen, who had been told about him from Kakyō.

Tokinada met Tōsen again when the latter attempted to breach the guards and enter the Central 46 building, demanding justice for Kakyō's death. Tokinada dealt with the guards, then told Tōsen what happened to Kakyō, describing the event from the third person as though it had not been him who had killed her. He asked Tōsen if he wanted revenge, and while Tōsen hesitated he eventually stated that Kakyō would not have wanted him to take revenge. At that point, Tokinada revealed his identity and told Tōsen that he had killed Kakyō and would have killed him too had he wanted revenge. In a blind rage, Tōsen attacked him, but Tokinada allowed the guards to deal with him.[2]

Synopsis

Can't Fear Your Own World

Powers and Abilities

Zanpakutō

Kuten Kyōkoku (九天鏡谷, "Nine Heavens Mirror Valley"): It is a Zanpakutō that is inherited by the head of the Tsunayashiro Clan, similar to that of the Shinken Hakkyōken of the Ise Clan. Tokinada's sword has a bronze guard in the form of a four-pointed star, enclosed in a square, and a handle with a green braid.[3]

  • Shikai: It is released with the command "Venerate".[4] Kuten Kyōkoku does not change form when it is released.
  • Shikai Special Ability: Tokinada is able to reflect attacks back on his opponents. Kuten Kyōkoku appears to manifest a force similar to that of a mirror wall in front of Tokinada, which bounces back any attack that comes into contact with it. Shunsui Kyōraku theorized, however, that the Zanpakutō is capable of doing much more than just that. This is further supported by the fact that it was Tokinada that infiltrated and defeated the multiple Zanpakutō spirits defending Ōetsu Nimaiya's palace, which was said to be the work of a single person capable of burning, freezing, electrocuting, poisoning, puncturing, and crushing their opponents.[1]
