Kazuku Shukei (しゅけい かずく, Shukei Kazuku) was a Shinigami. He was the former 12th Company 4th Seat, despite being more than qualified for the Assistant Captain position. He formerly served under 5th Company, and during his first week as a Soul Reaper, he took a job shadow in 13th Company.
Kazuku was well known for his charming good looks while in Rukongai. He had black, messy hair and pale blue eyes. He wore a standard-issue Shinigami uniform with the sleeves rolled up past his elbows when working. He always had a sword on him, rather it be his own or a wooden training sword. Despite being in 12th Company, he never made any body modifications.
Kazuku was the ideal role model for many Shinigami: he was hardworking, kind, and always on task and doing the right thing. While he wasn't without his flaws, he was a kind person. He was frequently spotted giving out watermelon he grew back in his Rukongai home, and he was adept at cooking. He was hardly serious, unless someone was about to be hurt. Being in 12th Company, he was a very smart man with a knack for creating- or accidently destroying- things. He was very kind when it came to his younger sister, and would do anything for her, even if it meant his own death.
Not a whole lot is known about Kazuku leading up to his murder. He and his sister were born in the World of the Living to a pair of exiled Soul Reapers. Their father was a Shukei, and their mother was his wife who was exiled along with him: she had to give birth in the World of the Living. Why they were exiled it is not known, despite there being several rumors that an Arrancar was involved somehow, and that they were exiled because of a crime. After Rinji was born, the parents were mysteriously murdered, and some believe in was by the same Arrancar they may have committed the crime with.
Once Kazuku and Rinji were killed by a blizzard shortly after their parents died and left them all alone, they reached the Soul Society. At first, they were assigned to the very worst district, and their early years were very hard on both their bodies and their minds, almost driving them to the edge of death. However, Kazuku managed to get into the Shin'o Academy, and he studied hard, frequently taking Rinji, who was only a baby, with him to keep her safe. Once he graduated, he requested that Rinji be moved to a safer district. Since Kazuku knew Momo Hinamori from his multiple trips to the other districts, he requested that his sister be moved to that district. The day Rinji was moved, Kazuku obtained a 5th Company seated position, despite only having been a Shinigami for a week.
While Rinji was being raised part-time by Toshiro Hitsugaya's and Momo Hinamori's grandmothers, Kazuk was working hard to climb the ranks. He was transferred to 12th Company soon after graduating, about 3 months, due to his brilliance. He made Rinji a special kimono because of her uncontrollable spiritual pressure, which was one of his first inventions. He invented several things before U-ezuri Danizee took an interest in him. Once this happened, Kazuku's fate was sealed. While Kazuk trained Rinji so that she could get a head start in Shin'o Academy, U-ezuri planned and executed several crimes using Kazuku's appearance. Kazuku was apprehended and murdered for something he did not do in the end, leading Rinji to swear revenge on Danizee.
