Omaeda is the vice-captain of squad two. He is an arrogant, vain and gluttonous man with very few redeeming features. He believes himself to be extremely attractive and refuses to accept that he is going bald. Unlike his captain, Soifon, Omaeda is somewhat cowardly and would generally prefer to run from a fight than engage in battle, though he has an intense loyalty to Soifon, and will do anything to help her. His zanpakutou is named Gegetsuburi.
