First Appearance

'Daisuke Yamamoto '(山本 大輔, Yamamoto Daisuke) occassionally known as Daisuke Shigekuni Yamamoto (山本大輔 重國, Yamamoto Daisuke Shigekuni) is the Captain-Commander of the Gotei 13 and Captain of the 1st Division. His lieutenant is Lirin, the former member to hold this position being Sakura.


Daisuke has a somewhat androgynous appearance, looking much like both a man and a woman. He has somewhat long dark brown hair usually held back with a clip, which he sometimes wears loose and emerald green eyes. He is almost always seen with a smile, something odd compared to his predecessor and father, Genryūsai Yamamoto, who was rarely seen with a smile.

In place of wearing the traditional Shinigami uniform, he chooses to wear a dark brown haori-like undershirt underneath a red and orange haori, green hakama, with bandages around his ankles and old-style sandals. His haori is tied closed with a rather long, white obi which holds his Zanpakutō as well.


Daisuke is a playful, flirtatious man. He is widely known in the Gotei 13 as being a womanizer, and has on several occasions flirted with several of the lieutenants and even his fellow Captains at times. Nevertheless, he is respectable as he will quickly become serious in dangerous situations and when the situation calls for it. He cares deeply for all of the members of the Gotei 13, regardless of their rank, and will sometimes become angry if a lieutenant is hurt severely in battle, especially Lirin.

No matter how hard I tried to convince her to stop being so reckless, she disregarded my advice and came to my aid whenever I was down. Those days, back then, were the best days I ever had..."
