Miyako Shiba (志波 都, Shiba Miyako) was the former 3rd Seat of the 13th Division and served under Captain Jūshirō Ukitake. She is the wife of Kaien Shiba.

Appearance

Miyako is a young woman with long dark hair. She keeps it tied up with a strand hanging down on each side. She has a warm smile and is quite beautiful, inspiring Rukia Kuchiki. She wears the standard Shinigami attire.[1][2]

Personality

Miyako is very smart and gentle. Rukia Kuchiki describes her as a beautiful person, and is looked up to by members of the division.[1] Miyako is kind towards her subordinates and looks after them in a motherly fashion. She wiped the dirt from Rukia's wounds and face after an incident with a Hollow.[2]

History

Ep49KaienMiyakoHurt

Miyako lies dead as Kaien goes to her.

After Rukia Kuchiki joined the Thirteenth Division, she was treated differently by the other members of the division because of her noble status.[3] Like Kaien, Miyako treated Rukia like a normal subordinate, unlike most members of their division, with Miyako helping her whenever she was hurt.[2] Rukia began to look up to her as a mentor and idol, wanting to be like her in every way.[1] When leaving on her last mission, despite the dangers involved, Miyako at first jokes about the mission before reassuring both Kaien and Rukia that she was proud to do her duty and kill any Hollow disturbing a Soul's rest.[2] While away on that mission, her entire squad was wiped out by a Hollow leaving Captain Ukitake to break the news to Kaien.[4] Later, as Kaien confronted the Hollow that killed Miyako, the Hollow says that he regrets not eating her head or torso.[5]

Powers & Abilities

Swordsman: As a Shinigami and a seated officer, Miyako possessed at least some level of skill of swordsmanship.[1]

High Spiritual Power: As a former 3rd seat in the Gotei 13, Miyako had respectable spiritual energy, enough to be directly targeted by a Hollow for its next meal.[6]

Zanpakutō

Ep49Miyako'sZanpakuto

Miyako's sealed Zanpakutō

The name of her Zanpakutō was never revealed. It had a light red handle with a hexagonal-shaped guard with rounded corners.[2]


Trivia

  • In the anime, instead of being killed on her mission, Miyako seemingly returned. Later that night she arose, possessed by the Hollow, and killed her subordinates before trying to attack Kiyone Kotetsu and Sentarō Kotsubaki. She runs away and Kaien chases after her, only to find her Zanpakutō and kimono on the ground, her body having been eaten from the inside out by the Hollow.[2]
