Name: DeeDee Kusajishi
Personality: DeeDee is child-like in most aspects, as she is small, cheerful, energetic, and carefree most of the time. She is often seen latched onto the back of her captain, Kenpachi Zaraki ("Ken-chan" as she calls him, "Kenny" in the English Dub and manga), just over his left shoulder, and is somewhat territorial about this position. She is surprisingly intimidating at times, especially when annoyed. Like Kenpachi, she has no sense of direction, but even so he relies on her for directions. Yachiru resents being criticized in any way and will often attack the perpetrator. Further reflecting her child-like nature, Yachiru likes to give people nicknames. For example, she gave Makizō Aramaki the name "Maki-Maki" and later when he reminds her of that name she finds it funny. She later renames him "mini-mustache". She also calls Ikkaku Madarame Baldy.
DeeDee's favorite free-time activity is eating sweets, though she will eat pretty much anything. She attends Head Captain Yamamoto's tea sessions, Captain Unohana's ikebana lessons, and also Captain Kuchiki's Calligraphy Club, but only to eat up the snacks and cakes served during these occasions and then disappear within moments.
It is also known that DeeDee's specialty is infiltration, which she uses mostly for mischievous deeds. During the time when Kenpachi takes his usual afternoon nap, she goes to play around Seireitei. She appears to have dug secret tunnels through the Kuchiki house, as she was seen searching for Ichigo Kurosaki ("Icchi" as she calls him), to show them to him. The tunnels are shown again when Lieutenants Isane Kotetsu and Nemu Kurotsuchi try to take a photograph of Byakuya Kuchiki.
DeeDee is the president of the Shinigami Women's Association, and holds its funds as such, spending it mostly on toys and candies. She stores her "treasures" in the hideout on the Kuchiki grounds mentioned above. It seems that she uses the whole Association to order the other members around, who are doing various, mostly childish pranks and other "tasks" to please her.
DeeDee seems to show a little-girl crush on Byakuya Kuchiki. She refers to him by affectionate nicknames like "Bya-kun" and "Byakushi," invites him to come eat with her (which she never asks anyone else) and at one point is seen offering him her drool-covered lollipop. Byakuya seems to find her crush annoying and mostly ignores her, although he apparently keeps buns on hand to jam into her mouth if she gets too assertive. In a recent omake, she has been seen dressed up in a cat costume, catching the koi in Byakuya's pond and releasing them in Ukitake's pond. While visiting Jūshirō Ukitake and "helping" him finish his food, Rukia mentions that there are no more koi in the pond, which Byakuya is upset about.
Zanpakutô Spirit: It is unknown, so for the time being it will be made up:
The personality of this demon beast is that of mischievous and yet, not really that harmful when in a good mood. It's world is surrounded by darkness, which is suspected to be DeeDee's true heart...
Sealed Zanpakutô : As you can see, her Zanpaktou isn't really unnatural, but if fits her personality.
She carried it around most of the time by a loose pink cord, and she tends to attack with the scabbard more than the blade it's self.
Shikai Description: When she calls out to her shikai, the blade shortens and becomes that like a Kodachi short sword. The blade's length is about 8 inches long and is optimum for defense in blade to blade combat. The Scabbard changes as well, as it turns into a flower basket full of different flowers and scents with their own little ability...
Shikai Abilities: CHARGE!: When DeeDee does this ability, she thrusts her Rietsu forward in a powerful motion, as it takes shape of a Demon Cat and flies directly at it's opponent. It cannot change direction and it will disappear after a while, but it's very fast and powerful if hit.
CAT FAMILY!: When DeeDee calls out to the Demon family, she will be surrounded by Demon Cats that hold her spiritual pressure. They will not have strong vitality, but they will have a high strength. If attacked by them, their claws would be sharp enough to rip the skin. Also their bodies are whole and fast, as DeeDee can ride them for either a fast get-away, or a combat advantage.
Little Bouquet girl: The flowers in DeeDee's flower basket have different effects. The effects last for about 5 minutes each, and once she uses all the flowers, she will be out until her Shikai is reactivated. She has in her basket, Roses, Tulips, Dandelions, and Daisy's. They have the following effect when thrown onto the battlefield:
Roses: When the rose petals hit the battlefield the opponents become entranced by it's effect and thus gain a small boost of affection to DeeDee, making it hard to actually gain the desire to hit her. It would take a serious means to kill, or no heart at all to want to strike her after effected by this aroma.
Tulips: When the Tulips are used, DeeDee gains a boost of speed and power, as she will be able to move up one level while the effect is in place. This is make her stronger and a more formidable foe when against those of a higher power.
Dandelions: When the Dandelions enter the field, the eyes of the opponent go out of use while the effect is in place. This will give the advantage in the art of projectile combat to DeeDee as one cannot really sense rocks at this point!
Daisy's: When the Daisy's enter the field, the senses of EVERYONE excluding DeeDee become slowed, including allies. What seems like 5 seconds to them is more like 8 as their sight, smell, hearing, touch, and taste senses are slow on their reflexes and gives DeeDee the advantage in fast combat.
Release: "Come play with me, Sakura Neko!"
High Spiritual Power: She is capable of emitting a great amount of spiritual power when she is angry, which forms into a large, pink, angry cat face. She also seems to be immune to her captain's spiritual pressure. Despite her childlike appearance and immature personality, DeeDee is apparently quite strong, since she is the current lieutenant of the combat division within Soul Society. Grown men have been shown to be afraid of her, and Rangiku Matsumoto was able to scare Ikkaku Madarame by threatening to tell on him to DeeDee if he didn't stop harassing Keigo Asano. Like her hair, DeeDee's spiritual pressure is pink.
Infiltration Expert: DeeDee is an expert at infiltration, which she only uses to undertake mischief.
Enhanced Strength: She is strong enough to easily lift Kenpachi, who is almost twice her height and over five times heavier, and leap between buildings while carrying him.
Enhanced Speed: DeeDee is also incredibly fast despite her compact size, running from the ground-level area of Seireitei to the mountain that holds the execution grounds in a fairly short period of time without Shunpo. In the anime however, she use what appeared to be Shunpo when she is chasing Ashisogi Jizō.
Detection and Analysis: DeeDee has displayed some detection and analysis skills with reiatsu. She detected and found Orihime when the latter was with Aramaki by noting the similarities between her reiatsu and that of Ichigo. From this she deduced that Orihime was a Ryoka.

History/Background: DeeDee first met Kenpachi in one of the worst districts of Rukongai, the 79th district of the North Alley, Kusajishi, as a nameless child. She crawled over to him after he had killed several other men with his unnamed Zanpakutō, and was completely unfazed by the violence she had just witnessed, or the blood on his sword. Even as Kenpachi warned her that the sword was dangerous, she reached out and touched it, giggling as her hand was covered in the blood of dead men. He adopted her after that, saving her from certain death in Rukongai. He named her "DeeDee" in memory of the only person he ever admired. Her surname Kusajishi was given to her because she's from that district. Since that day she has spent much of her time clinging to his back for transport.
DeeDee is first seen when the Ryoka break into Seireitei and she accompanies her captain as he begins searching the city for them. She is seen directing Kenpachi through the city's streets, albeit badly, resulting in them becoming lost, though they blame each other for their predicament. After the pair unintentionally arrived at the 4th Division's compound, they visit Ikkaku Madarame, who, while recovering from injuries suffered from fighting Ichigo Kurosaki, was being interrogated by 12th Division Captain Mayuri Kurotsuchi. After Mayuri and his lieutenant, Nemu Kurotsuchi leave, DeeDee tells Ikkaku that she was worried about him, and they trade friendly insults.
Having learned what Ichigo's destination is from Ikkaku, Kenpachi decides to wait for him near his objective, where they eventually encounter Ichigo, Ganju Shiba and Hanatarō Yamada. DeeDee is surprised by how easily Kenpachi scared Ichigo's companions, jumping momentarily onto Ichigo's shoulder to get a better view. As the fight starts, she is sitting against the wall of a building. She tells Ichigo that he cannot cut Kenpachi with his sword. Later, DeeDee is seen watching on from the rooftops of the nearby buildings, where she is approached by a messenger from the Reversal Counter Force of the Onmitsukidō who attempts to inform her of the death of Sōsuke Aizen. DeeDee, however, is too engrossed in observing the battle, and orders him to tell her after it ends.
After the fight, DeeDee thanks Ichigo for giving her captain such a good fight and says she hopes he survives so that the two can have a enjoy another fight in the future. She then lifts Kenpachi onto her back and jumps up onto the top of a building and calls for Retsu Unohana to heal Kenpachi. Kenpachi tells DeeDee that he lost, but DeeDee refuses to accept this, stating that it was not a fair fight as it was two against one. Kenpachi disagrees and laughs at her attempts to justify not winning, which DeeDee responds to by slapping him. The pair reminisce about how they met and gained their names, resolving to get stronger together. Kenpachi then loses consciousness again, worrying DeeDee greatly.
Sometime later, DeeDee finds Makizō Aramaki carrying an unconscious Orihime Inoue, whom he declares he had been bringing to her. DeeDee and Aramaki bring back Orihime to Kenpachi and he tells her that he will help her find Ichigo. Orihime attempts to guide Kenpachi, DeeDee, Ikkaku, Yumichika Ayasegawa, and Aramaki to Ichigo, finding and freeing the captured Yasutora Sado, Uryū Ishida, and Ganju on the way. While searching for Ichigo, the enlarged group is confronted by 9th Division Captain Kaname Tōsen and 7th Division Captain Sajin Komamura, as well as their respective lieutenants Shūhei Hisagi and Tetsuzaemon Iba. Kenpachi, Ikkaku and Yumichika stay behind to fight the new threat, while the remainder of the group, continues on towards the Sōkyoku Hill in search of Ichigo. As the execution ceremony of Rukia Kuchiki begins, she rushes on ahead to determine the situation. After Ichigo rescues Rukia, she waits in the branches of the trees on top of the Sōkyoku Hill for the others to arrive.
Later when Zaraki enters Hueco Mundo, she follows him and stands back while he fights Nnoitra Jiruga. During a portion of the fight when Nnoitra managed to briefly knock out Zaraki, he sets his sights on killing DeeDee. DeeDee however states that "I think you should look behind you," before Zaraki cuts off one of Nnoitra's arms. After he discards it, DeeDee says "You should watch out! Ken-chan will get mad if you start attacking me!" to which Zaraki replies, "Who d'you think you're callin' mad?"
It was a fine day in Soul Society near the 11th Division Barracks as the sun beamed down on the training fields of Division members battling one another. A small girl with pink hair was sitting atop a large building looking down at all of them, with a lollipop in her right hand. A smile was on the girls face from ear to ear as within her mind, a devious plan was in the works. The girl was no other than the 11th Division Vice Captain DeeDee. She was the youngest Vice Captain in Soul Society history, and she was well respected despite her age, appearance, and personality.
DeeDee looked over as Kenpachi was watching the training undergo under the barracks, and she jumped down onto his shoulder with a very graceful landing.
"Kenny-chan, We gunna go play too!?"
As the girl as her spirits were high at the moment. The man whom of which she hung off of, had a very evil grin hang off his face as he seemed to be wishing for some action as well. DeeDee awaited eagerly as she wished to play with her captain and his squad for a little while!
