Nemu Kurotsuchi is the lieutenant of the Twelfth Squad of the Gotei 13, serving under Captain Mayuri Kurotsuchi.



Physical Appearance

Petite and youthful, Nemu has black hair with slightly parted bangs and is pulled back into a long braid. Her expression is almost always melancholic, and it is rare to see her smile or show any real joy in her distinctive green eyes. Her uniform consists of a short black kimono with a white nagajuban under it. The sleeves of her kimono are not as wide as those worn by most Shinigami and the upper parts of the sleeves are puffed. She wears a traditional wide white obi with a red cord fastening it. On her left sleeve is her lieutenant's armband. In addition she wears white gloves that cover only the back of her hands and wrists; as well as a dark red choker.

Body Modifications

  • Body Modifications - Like his own body, Mayuri has implanted various modifications and chemicals within Nemu to use against his opponents.
