This is a list of Soul Reaper (死神, shinigami?, literally "death god") characters featured in the anime and manga series Bleach, created by Tite Kubo. Soul Reapers are a fictional race of spirits who govern the flow of souls between the human world and the afterlife.
The series follows how Ichigo Kurosaki becomes the substitute of the Soul Reaper Rukia Kuchiki. Since then he assumes her duties to protect souls to make them rest in peace as well as to fight against creatures called hollow, which are souls that cannot rest. However, as the series, Rukia is arrested by the Soul Reapers' organization, Soul Society, for giving her powers to Ichigo and prepares to execute her. Ichigo and his friends go to save her and are forced to fight against all the Soul Reapers' divisions. However the 5th division captain, Sōsuke Aizen betrays Soul Society and starts a plan to destroy it.
Lieutenant Kurotsuchi Nemu is an artificial entity created from the Gigai technology and gikon technology by Captain Kurotsuchi. The same blood flows in Nemu and Captain Kurotsuchi, hence be it interest or how to spend free time, she will have many similarities as Captain Kurotsuchi." - Tite Kubo quoted at http://bleach.wikia.com/wiki/Nemu
Nemu Kurotsuchi is the lieutenant in the 12th Division. Mayuri Kurotsuchi is Nemu's Captain/Father/Creator and he abuses her in all senses of the word. As a result she is shy and sad. Despite thie maltreatment she is very loyal to Mayuri. She has black hair and green eyes.
Because she was created artificially she has many unusual abilities. She is incredibly strong, an excellent hand-to-hand fighter, very fast, can survive more inhuries than mortals can. She is very knowledgable about chemistry. Despite her origins she is capable of compassion as demonstrated when she spares Uryo Ishida. When she goes into a death-like state Mayuri can revive her.
