</div> The Third Division (三番隊, sanbantai), also known as Squad 3 in the English dub, is one of the Gotei 13. The 3rd Division is headed by Captain Sora Inoue and Lieutenant Baiken Nanalise.

Organization Edit

The 3rd Division follows the traditional organization of a Gotei 13 Division. After the Defection of Gin Ichimaru the Division was run by the next highest authority in the 3rd Division, Lieutenant Izuru Kira. Some time after Aizen's defeat, Rōjūrō Ōtoribashi was reinstated as the Captain of the 3rd Division.

Special Duties Edit

No special duties have been noted for this division.

Barracks Edit

Like all the other barracks, the 3rd Division Barracks house the offices and living quarters of the Shinigami of the 3rd. During his captaincy, Gin Ichimaru is said to have planted Persimmon trees in the barrack grounds and dried the fruits himself to create hoshigaki, which he shared with other divisions. Captain Ichimaru and Captain Hitsugaya also fought on the 3rd Division grounds during the Ryoka Invasion.
