Cast & Notes (Valentine’s Day Off)

Bleach: Cross Backgrounds – May differ from Bleach canon.

Thorne (Shihoin), Shirahime: Current fifth division taicho.  As the reincarnation of Shirayukihime no Tenjou, a member of the royal family, she possesses great spiritual power even though she is still human.  Unlike other shinigami, she has two zanpakutos.  In her current life, she is engaged to Crown Prince Shiroyuki despite any feelings she may have for others.  She is mother via Shirayukihime of Yachiru’s previous incarnation.  She adopted Daichi Takeya who is now the third seat of the fifth division.  Shirayukihime’s parents were the previous incarnations of Kisuke Urahara and Yoruichi Shihoin.  Sister of Lafiel Urahara.  Zanpakuto: Yukihime and Kosetsu Ryu.

Hinamori, Momo: Fifth division fukutaicho.  She is unsure of her feelings for Daichi Takeya.

Hitsugaya, Toshiro: Tenth division taicho who is in love with Shirahime.  Despite appearance, he is an adult, though he hides it.  Shirahime already knew about this secret.

Kuchiki, Byakuya: Sixth division taicho.  He loves Shirahime enough to marry her to keep her from the royal family.

Kurotsuchi, Mayuri: Twelfth division taicho.  Creator of Lafiel. Mayuri Kurotsuchi and Kisuke Urahara have a plan to save Shirahime from the royal family, even if Yoruichi won’t like it.  Shirahime blames him for being the reason why she had to give Momo, Yachiru, and Daichi (and indirectly Raiko) “the talk” (Fifth Division in the Red).

Kusajishi, Yachiru: The present incarnation of Shirayukihime no Tenjou’s daughter.  She considers Kenpachi Zaraki her father and Shirahime her mother.  Daichi’s older sister.  Crown Prince Shiroyuki has named her his heir.  Likes to play with Shirahime’s zanpakuto Kosetsu Ryu.

Shihoin, Yoruichi: Reincarnation of Shirayukihime’s mother.  Exiled shinigami.  Close to her daughters and grandchildren.

Takeya, Daichi Thorne: Adopted son of Shirahime Thorne and the fifth division’s third seat.  Yachiru’s younger brother.  Has growing feelings for Momo Hinamori.  Zanpakuto: Aoi Raiko.

Takeya, Raiko Thorne: The incarnation of Daichi’s zanpakuto, Aoi Raiko.  Considered the youngest of Shirahime’s children.  She looks forward to having a younger brother or sister but doesn’t quite understand where babies come from.

Urahara, Kisuke: Reincarnation of Shirayukihime’s father.  Exiled shinigami.  A protective parent.

Urahara, Lafiel: A mod soul that failed to separate Shirahime’s human and shinigami selves.  At Shirahime’s insistence, Mayuri Kurotsuchi created a body for her like Nemu’s.  She is considered Shirahime’s identical twin sister and adopted the name of her father, Kisuke Urahara.  She can’t wait for her beloved sister to tell her she will be an aunt to another child, so she’s on a personal mission to help that along.

Zaraki, Kenpachi: Eleventh division taicho, father to Yachiru.  He is the reincarnation of Shirahime Thorne’s human fiancé.  Now in a relationship with Rangiku Matsumoto.


Aoi Raiko: Spirit of Daichi’s zanpakuto.

Kosetsu Ryu: Kosetsu Ryu and Yukihime are Shirahime’s zanpakutos.  Form: small ice dragon.  Yachiru likes to play with him.

Yukihime: Yukihime and Kosetsu Ryu are Shirahime’s zanpakutos.  She is the incarnation of Shirayukihime’s powers.



The visit to Kisuke-ji’s and the tests references That Talk Again.  Yachiru stayed with Shirahime while she recovered at her parents’ place.  Daichi and Momo visit them and Kisuke-ji and Yoruichi-ba gets some interesting ideas of what might really be going on.  (Mature)
