Xander Kanagaki (カナガキXアンデ, Kanagaki Xander) is the lieutenant of the 5th Division, under Captain Jonsuno Kanagaki, his father. He also goes by the nickname, Xan.
Xander highly resembles his father. He has black hair with a blue tint, which lengthens as the story progresses, and onyx eyes covered by square glasses. He dresses in the standard Shinigami outfit with a lieutenant's emblem on his right arm. Over his shinigami uniform, he wears segmented, red samurai armor and he carries his zanpakuto instead of having it attached it an obi or strung across his back.
Xander is outgoing and strong willed. He is overly protective of his sister Nyan and cares deeply about what his father, Jonsuno, thinks of him. He and his brother, Fuminori, have similar values and personalities, but bicker on occasions as all brothers do. He has a short fuse and does not like to get picked on. If he is, he will give several warnings before finally taking action. He can be somewhat arrogant on occasions, constantly believing he is the superior in combat, though this may be due to his status in a high ranking noble family and his vice-captain position in the Gotei 13. He has a tendency to "not have fun" while his sister Nyan is absent.
Powers & Abilities
Expert Swordsmanship Specialist: Xander is proficient enough to cross swords with other lieutenant-level Shinigami. He knowingly states when facing his brother in a training match that he knows he is not strong enough to combat Fuminori using his own swordsmanship skills, instead sneaking up on him and using Kidō.
Flash Steps: He is skilled enough in the use of flash steps that he can keep up with lieutenant-level Shinigami.
Kidō Expert: Xander, like Nyan, Fumi, and their father, excels at Kidō. Xander is a Kidō master as stated by Captain Jonsuno and Captain Nyan. His abilities reach to such a pinnacle that he can devise ways to use multiple spells in conjunction with each other to make a unique way in which to attack and incapacitate opponents. Xander also uses these spells in conjunction with flash steps, and is naturally attuned to that discipline. Fuminori was very surprised at the level Xander has reached in Kidō, "making standard spells all his own."
High Spiritual Energy: Being a lieutenant of the Gotei 13, Xander boasts a high spiritual energy.
Taikomaru (タイコマル, loud and clear) is Xander's zanpakuto. In its sealed form, it resembles a wakizashi with a blue hilt reminiscent of a Chinese dao. It is kept sheathed horizontally behind Xander's lower back hanging by a rope.
- Shikai: is released with the phrase "Make yourself heard." Taikomaru maintains its form of a regular wakizashi.
- Shikai Special Ability: It has the automatic effect of projecting a high-pitched tone over a wide area, overloading the hearing of anyone in range and bursting their eardrums, preventing them from hearing for a good while.
- Bankai: Not yet achieved.
