Kurenai Asami is the 3rd seat of the Second Division and also the leader of the Detention Unit. She is known throughout the Seireitei for her assassination skills and has come to claim the title as 'The Crimson Blade'. Even though her position is as 3rd seat, Kurenai is often seen by her Captain's side more so than their own lieutenant. It has been rumored that Kurenai turned down the promotion to Lieutenant (Much to Soifon's displeasure.) shortly after Yoruichi's departure. Kurenai has never failed an assassination and has more experience in killing people than hallows.


With long unruly crimson hair, Kurenai stands at an average 5"8' in height with a curvaceous figure that doesn't go unnoticed. Her emerald eyes enhance the paleness of her skin that is seemingly flawless but a few freckles dashed across her cheeks. When in the Soul Society, Kurenai wears her traditional Onmitsukidō uniform proudly, her hair often tied up high in a ponytail fashion but is sometimes left down freely. She wears no personal items other than her Zanpakutō, in fear this would be used as an emotional lead for her enemies to follow or hinder her in a mission, be that heirlooms such as jewelry or identification symbols (Tattoos, family crest, precious items.) Her Zanpakutō itself is securely fastened to Kurenai's lower back at a horizontal angle with a silver obi.
