Kisuke Urahara is the founder and first President of the S.R.D.I., as well as a former captain of the 12th Division. Hiyori Sarugaki was his lieutenant. He is a Shinigami that dwells in the Human World and manages a tiny convenience store that offers Shinigami goods.
Tessai Tsukabishi, Jinta Hanakari, and Ururu Tsumugiya, his employees, support him.
Kisuke is a tall, thin man with grey eyes and a light complexion. He has chin stubble and his hair is unkempt and light-blond (nearly pale), with strands framing the edges of his face and hanging between his eyes.
Kisuke is seen dressed in a dark green Shihakush with no underwear. Over this, he wears a black haori with a white diamond pattern running down the lower half, similar to an inverted captain’s haori.
Urahara has a fan with him, which he uses to cover his face from time to time. He normally wears a striped dark green and white bucket hat and traditional Japanese wooden sandals (geta).
He had a clean shaved face and wore the traditional Shinigami outfit throughout his early years in Soul Society. He frequently wears jeans and a polo shirt to his more relaxed appearance.
Urahara is normally a laid-back, optimistic, joyful, humble, and eccentric man, but when the circumstances call for it, he exhibits a deceptively shrewd and serious side.
To distract his opponents, he frequently engages in idle chat and displays outward care. Despite his carefree demeanor, he always speaks properly, yet, he can be snarky at times.
Kisuke is a pragmatic soldier who believes that in a life-or-death conflict, whatever methods necessary to win and survive must be used, such as making an alliance with Grimmjow Jaegerjaquez ahead of time to kill Askin Nakk Le Vaar via a sneak attack from behind.
Abilities and Power
Kisuke’s most threatening ability is his hyper intellect. Kisuke is a master strategist and plans so far ahead that he has a setup ready for practically every imaginable circumstance when fighting foes in combat (as shown against sternritter D and Sosuke Aizen.)He was able to make a hogyoku.
In addition to his mental abilities, Urahara is a highly skilled kido specialist who uses kido in the level 90s. His knowledge of kido is so sophisticated that he was able to adjust his had 91 to include a sealing ability, which effectively locked aizen away. To emphasize this, he put this up before Aizen had even completed his chrysalis condition.
Then there’s his Hakuna prowess. He possessed a good amount of physical strength and speed as part of the second squad, formerly the third seat, dodging hiyori’s kick and moving back into it on purpose to get hit and have no one other than hiyori notice.
Kisuke formerly was the warden of the Maggots nest filled with many individuals deemed dangerous by the soul society and he had to subdue them by hand. He can easily keep up with Hiyori because she tires out quickly, and Ichigo is the same way during training. Hiyori kicked him in the balls, and he seemed to shrug it off, leaving Hiyori’s leg in pain.
The most dangerous aspect of Urahara’s worldview is undoubtedly how well he can mix all of his skills and attributes. He appears to be calm and laid back most of the time, yet he has serious sides as well.
When Sternritter D was asked how far Urahara was planning ahead, he replied, “this is war, if you lose you die, planning ahead is the best odds for survival it’s what everyone does.” Because of his mindset, he is never caught off guard, and when combined in battle, he is lethal.
