At birth, Yhwach could not see, taste, smell, feel, or hear anything, but soon learned he had the unique ability to heal the infirmities of others by giving them a piece of his soul and later regaining it upon their deaths, which eventually restored his senses. Upon hearing the people around him referring to him by the name of their god, Yhwach modified that name and took it as his own. 1000 years ago, he fought against and lost to Genryūsai Shigekuni Yamamoto, falling into a deep slumber shortly afterward; however, the Kaiser Gesang spoke of him regaining his mind, heartbeat, and power over the course of 999 years. 9 years ago, Yhwach performed an Auswählen on Quincy whom he deemed "impure" to regain his power, and 2 years after the defeat of Sōsuke Aizen, he and his hidden Quincy empire, the Wandenreich, declared war on Soul Society. As the Wandenreich claimed massive casualties, Yhwach killed Captain-Commander Yamamoto himself and briefly confronted Ichigo Kurosaki before being forced to depart. Three days later, he appointed Uryū Ishida as his successor, and shortly afterward replaced the entire Seireitei with his own city. While initially observing the ensuing conflict from Silbern, Yhwach made his move after Ichigo returned from his training in the Soul King Palace and transported himself, Jugram Haschwalth, and Uryū there.
Upon being confronted by the Royal Guard, Yhwach unleashed five more Sternritter to combat them, and when they were all cut down, he performed another Auswählen to revive the four most powerful of them, his Schutzstaffel. Shortly afterward, Yhwach himself confronted Ichibē Hyōsube, the commander of the Royal Guard, and the two battled, with Ichibē overwhelming and depowering Yhwach. However, Yhwach's Schrift, The Almighty, finally activated, and Yhwach used it to regain his power and kill Ichibē before finding and stabbing the Soul King himself. When Ichigo and his friends arrive, Yhwach tricked Ichigo into grabbing his sword and used the Reishi therein to manipulate Ichigo into killing the Soul King himself. Though he encountered unexpected interference from Mimihagi, who managed to stabilize the Soul King at the cost of Jūshirō Ukitake's life, Yhwach, with the aid of Uryū, managed to remove and absorb Mimihagi, which prompted him to absorb the rest of the Soul King as well. With his newfound power, Yhwach moved his city from Soul Society to the Royal Realm, and when his foes arrived, he created a towering new palace as a challenge to them.
