Yachiru is a very small and young pink she-cat dark pink eyes and a perpetual blush on her cheeks.
Yachiru is first seen with Kenpachi, her unoffical adoptive father, when he gets in a fight with Ichigo. When the fight ends in a draw, she takes him away and treats his wounds, messing around with him and having fun afterwards.
Yachiru, no matter where she goes, always rides on Kenpachi's back.
When Ichigo storms in, demanding to know why Kenpachi gave him herbs that wouldn't work, Yachiru grows scared and hides behind Kenpachi. This greatly angers him, and he picks Ichigo up by the scruff, demanding that he apologize. He does, and Kenpachi states that he didn't say it loud enough. He repeats it, and Kenpachi lets him go, giving him the herbs and kicking him out for the night.
A few days later she explores the forest, and Kenpachi follows her in the trees. She dosen't do much, hunt, sleep, talk with a friend, then leaves back to the den.
When Kenpachi and Ulquiorra get in a small fight, she keeps trying to sleep but can't, so she goes out into the rain and falls asleep out there. Rukia gently picks her up and places her back in her nest.
Yachiru is later killed by Gaara.
- Kenpachi - Deceased
Yachiru is child-like in most aspects, as she is small, cheerful, energetic, and carefree most of the time. she is often seen on Kenpachi's back, and is very territorial about that position. she is surprisingly intimidating at times, especially when annoyed. Like Kenpachi, she has no sense of direction, but even so he relies on her for directions. Yachiru resents being criticized in any way and will often attack the perpetrator. Further reflecting her child-like nature, Yachiru likes to give others nicknames.
Yachiru's favorite free-time activity is eating anything sweet, though she will eat pretty much anything. Yachiru is great at infiltrating things, and often times uses this to do mischievous deeds. When Kenpachi normally takes his afternoon nap, she wanders around the forest, and often causes trouble along the way. Despite her childlike appearance and immature personality, Yachiru is apparently quite strong.
