Similar to his son, Shin'etsu keeps his dark brown hair in a messy fashion, though he has a small beard. As a seated member, he wore the standard Shinigami uniform, albeit, in the flashback, it was tattered.
When the Kasumiōji Clan began manufacturing the Bakkōtō, the Central 46 denied captain Genryūsai Shigekuni Yamamoto's request to investigate the compound. Nonetheless, Shin'etsu offered to sneak in anyway. While there, Gyōkaku Kumoi found him and forced a Bakkōtō on him. Kumoi then ordered for him to kill the person that sent him. He returns to Yamamoto, but his captain unleashes his Shikai to defend himself. Despite his hesitation, he kills Shin'etsu. Shūsuke finds his dying body and hears his father's last words, "Beware the Bakkōtō".
Powers & Abilties
Despite having a Zanpakutō, it was never revealed if he could use Shikai.
Upon being captured by Kumoi, he was forcibly given an experimental Bakkōtō. It has two curved extensions on both ends of the blade that take the appearance of a hook. Its powers, if any, are unknown.
