In Bleach Edit
Ichigo is an orange-haired 15-year-old teenager able to see spirits. He meets Death God Rukia Kuchiki in the midst of a hollow attack. After Rukia is heavily injured by the hollow, she is forced to transfer her Death God powers to Ichigo so that he can kill the hollow and save their lives and his family. Though he defeats the hollow, Ichigo absorbs almost all of Rukia's spiritual power, and he is forced to perform her Death God duties until she recovers her powers. When Ichigo was nine, he mistook hollow Grand Fisher for someone in danger, and his mother, Masaki Kurosaki, was killed by the hollow while protecting Ichigo. Masaki's death continues to influence Ichigo by causing him to feel guilt for his inability to protect those close to him and therefore, he thanks Rukia for giving him the powers to protect them.
