7th Division (Disciplinary)

While the 2nd division is responsible for internal affairs, the 7th division are Soul Society's enforcers, a police force acting both within the Gotei 13 and outside of it. In particular, they are charged with maintaining the prisons and carrying out sentences, including executions. It takes a lawful and unwavering mind to act as part of the 7th division.

Captain: Komamura Sajin

Most unusual in Soul Society, Captain Komamura is an anthropomorphic canine who appears to be a wolf or fox. He was initially very self-conscious about his appearance, previously hiding his face behind a heavy helmet, but since the culmination of Aizen Sousuke's plot, he has been seen without it. While little is known about Komamura's background aside from his intense loyalty to 1st division captain Yamamoto, it became evident during the betrayal that Komamura had a close friendship with former 9th division captain Tousen; Komamura was shocked when the latter chose to side with Aizen, feeling that his friend had abandoned his morals.

Zanpakutou: Tenken (lit. Heaven's Sword)

Its shikai command is "roar". In its shikai, Tenken creates various body parts of a giant to copy whatever body part Komamura moves; for example, should Komamura swing his sword, a gigantic disembodied arm wielding a sword appears and does the same thing. Tenken's bankai, Kokujou Tengen Myou'ou (lit. Heavenly Punishment of Kokujou's King), brings forth the entire giant. Like in the shikai, the giant copies every movement made by Komamura.

Vice-captain: Iba Tetsuzaemon

Unlike his captain, Vice-Captain Iba has a rather rough and roguish image, and a reputation for "gangster" behaviour such as drinking and smoking. It's likely that this is, in part, because he was originally from the 11th Division, but transferred to the 7th Division because getting promoted to vice-captain in the 11th Division was more difficult, if not impossible. As a result – and because he studied kidou to improve his chances of promotion – his former compatriots in the 11th Division look down upon him. In spite of this, Iba has a habit of hanging around the 11th division's headquarters, and sparring with some of his former fellows.

Iba has a distinctive short haircut and wears black sunglasses with his standard shinigami uniform. He has a large tattoo on his back consisting of a cat on fire and the kanji for "inviting luck".

Zanpakutou: ?

The name and abilities of Iba's zanpakutou are unknown, as well as its shikai command. When sealed, it looks like a tantou, and he usually keeps it inside his shinigami uniform with the hilt sticking out. In its shikai, Iba's zanpakutou extends into a falchion or a large bladed scimitar with a pick-like protrusion a short distance below the tip of the sword.
