Aizen, Sosuke: Shirahime’s predecessor as fifth division taicho.  Momo Hinamori had been his fukutaicho.  He manipulated her and tried to kill her.  The mental damage he caused far outweighed the physical.  When Shirahime had been the third seat of the tenth division, she prevented Aizen’s previous attempt to become a god at the cost of her own life.  After her resurrection and Momo’s physical recovery, Shirahime helped Momo’s mental well-being.  Shirahime begun to recall a past life when she knew Aizen and called him “Suki.”  Although this is a feminine name, Aizen was fond of it due to its meaning and that Shirahime was the only one to call him that.

Author’s Note:
Eleventh Division (Mayuri’s Flashbacks, Chapter 3)

The Eleventh Division, led by Kenpachi Zaraki, is a combat specialty unit.  Aside from Yachiru, Shirahime was the only female in the division since Zaraki became taicho.  She had been the fourth seat of the eleventh division then later the third seat of the tenth division.  (Timeline: Before Blush.)

This is by no means a reflection of Bleach canon.
