Shunpo ExpertPersonality Traits
Hibiki is very rough around the edges, insane, loyal, tomboyish and she is a tough gal. However, she is stubborn as a mule and has a fiery temper.
She tends to be very insecure and blames herself about what happened in her past especially about her mother being killed.
Hibiki is not a bad person, but she does have a violent side and can be mean because of the squad she used to work for and she was trained to be like that and she is only soft-hearted to a certain extent, but she is not the down-to-earth type.
Like her former captain, she is a very violent fighter when it comes to battles and she is not very patient on people that annoy her so she is also very blunt and cold-hearted towards them and once she targets her foes she will not give up until they are dead.
Unlike her father, she is not laid back , she does not approve of his drinking and his passion of being flirtatious of chasing women since it really irks her. That's one of the main reasons she does not hang out with her father liked she used to.
She is very judgmental when it comes to saki and people who drink saki since she really cannot stand being around people who get drunk.
Hibiki can be a jerk to her friends in her own cold-hearted and cruel way, but she means well about it even when it comes to be mean even to Shuhei and Serenity which is one of the reasons why she always gets beat up by Serenity just because of it and is always seen with a bruise the next day.
However, Hibiki doesn't mind about the bruises she gets from Serenity due to her masochistic nature.
The only person she ever had a soft side was Kaname Tosen, her one true love, but her insanity became worse after he left Soul Society.
Later on, she started to bond with her former captain Kenpachi Zaraki and he later becomes a love interest to her and started to develop strong feelings for him. Biography
Hibiki was born from Shunsui Kyōraku and a homeless peasant and when she was about five years old, her mother was killed by Aizen Sosuke himself and she has wished upon his death ever since. That is how Hibiki became corrupt and lost her insanity and started to not get along with her father. When she turned sixteen years old she moved out of her father's barracks and moved in Squad Eleven.
Hibiki ended up training with Kenpachi Zaraki and his members and that is how she became a very skilled fighter and then one day she was later transferred into Squad Nine and received the position of being a fifth seated officer for Squad Nine.
She always had to learn to train and survive the hard way due to her stubborness and she always seemed to not listen to Kenpachi's training, but then later she got motivated by her own insanity even when she got attacked by hollows which left a large scar across her back that used to be a large gash and she almost died that day, but luckily survived.
Hibiki then decided to kill Aizen on her own, but then she actually did get her wish one day during the arancarr invasion and she got back to him for all the pain her caused her when he killed her mother even though she could never kill him herself, but then again she actually realized why she had to be trained the hard way once she moved to Squad Elven, but then she later got transferred to Squad Nine.
She fell in love with Kaname Tosen of Squad Nine and that is why she started to soften up all thanks to Tosen and what he taught her even though he betrayed Soul Society, but then sadly her insanity did become worse soon after that especially since she lost him and she did not want him to die because she was in love with him and to this day she has never forgotten him and also her heart has been shattered ever since and she prefers to have her heart remain loyal to him.
Years later after she had spent more time with Kenpachi she started to develop feelings for her former captain due to everything he taught her and being there for her. She later decided to move on even though she misses Kaname dearly, she could never help but end up have feelings for her former captain that it later became a strong bond and they ended up as a couple.
