Uryuu is Ichigo’s brainiac classmate at Karakura High. He is a Quincy who is able to draw spirit particles from around him to exorcise hollows. He harbours an intense hatred for Shinigami and sees Ichigo as a rival. Though he often clashes with him, Uryuu is always willing to help out his classmates and defeat whatever enemies come his way. Uryuu is also quite adept at sewing and even fashions his own battle outfit – complete with cape – to which he has a bizarre attachment.
