First Appearance

Ayame Fēng (蜂 菖蒲, Fēng-Ayame), sometimes known as Ayame no Suzumebachi (菖蒲 雀蜂, "Iris of the Hornet") is the Captain of the 2nd Division, succeding her mother, Suì-Fēng, who held this position for approximately a hundred years. Her lieutenant is Gurō Ōmaeda.


Ayame Fēng

Ayame's full appearance, with her shikai

Ayame resembles her mother in just about every way with the exception that she has yet to cut her hair, for obvious reasons.

She keeps her hair styled like her mother, wearing it in two wraps each ending in two rings like her mother's as well, and occasionally wearing it long, as well as having a fringe across her forehead and two strands of hair framing her face. Her eyes are a dark blue, and have hints of lavender in them at times.

Ayame wears the standard Shinigami uniform, with her captain's haori tied closed with a yellow obi, which is sometimes traded for a red one. Underneath her captain's haori, she wears the uniform of the commander-in-chief of the Onmitsukidō, which has no sleeves and doesn't cover the back, for easy use of Shunko, though she does wear black arm warmers. Instead of wearing the usual Shinigami sandals with white tabi, she wears traditional Chinese shoes and ordinary socks, white in battle and black when casual.


Unlike her mother, Ayame can be reckless, bubbly, and talkative. She is generally kind, though often resorts to violence when she or Suì-Fēng is disrespected, having once broke several of Gurō's ribs when he called Suì-Fēng a "complaining, scary captain" (Bitchy Captain in the uncensored Sub). Nevertheless, she is often mistaken for being Suì-Fēng and becomes angry when this happens as well, although she does seem to consider it an honor to be "mistaken for someone so strong".
