Onmitsukido

The Duties of the Onmitsukidō

The Onmitsukidō is an underground stealth faction within the Seireitei that is separate of the Gotei 13. It is comprised of five Units, for which the 1st Unit has the most authority, and the 5th Unit the least; and each Unit has its own unique duties. Each Unit is led by a Corps Commander, who is an officer of superior experience and skill. The Corps Commander of the First Unit is the leader of the Onmitsukidō and their position is the Commander-in-Chief. The Onmitsukidō is directly under the control of the Central 46. Its duties range from reconnaissance, to assassination, to high-level security. If the Gotei 13 is considered an exterior guard, then the Onmitsukidō is an interior, covert guard.

Over the years, the Onmitsukidō has become intertwined with the Seireitei’s Second Division, with many of its members holding positions in both the Onmitsukidō and the 2nd Division. It is normal for the five Unit Commanders to be higher-ranked seated officers from the 2nd Division, usually ranging from 5th Seat to Captain. If the 2nd Division’s Captain is the leader of Unit 1, and therefore the leader of the Onmitsukidō as a whole, the faction is effectively under the Gotei 13’s control. In the past, two of the 2nd Division Captains have held leadership over the Onmitsukidō: the beloved warrior princess Maruyama Naomi, as well as the 2nd Division’s current Captain, the young, enigmatic Yuuki Miyagawa. Little is actually known about the Onmitsukidō by non-members, for this faction conducts most of its operations in secret, although its presence can always be felt. Members of the Onmitsukidō are rarely seen in the Seireitei, with the exception of members who also hold positions in the 2nd Division.

The duties of the five Units of the Onmitsukidō are as follows:

Unit 1, Executive Militia

The first branch of the Onmitsukidō. It is ranked the highest out of the five Units in the faction. Their main responsibility is to govern the actions of each of the other units, assigning missions, and communicating with other factions or Gotei 13 Divisions. They are also the torture Unit within the Onmitsukidō. They torture and punish any ex-comrades who have broken the law that have been apprehended by the Security or Assassination Units. The members of the 1st Unit dress all in black and are well-known for their cold-bloodedness and skill in Hakuda, which is the art of hand-to-hand combat.

Current Corps Commander: The current Corps Commander (and Commander-in-Chief) of the Executive Militia is Yuuki Miyagawa.

Unit 2, Security Unit

The second branch of the Onmitsukidō. It is ranked the second-highest out of the five Units in the faction. The main responsibility of the Security Unit is to provide security to the rich or important. Most of these clients are members of the Central 46 Chambers. Every member of the Security Unit must have finely attuned senses and be skilled in the art of Hakuda. The members of the 2nd Unit also dress in all black and are the main mouthpiece between the Central 46 and the Onmitsukidō.

Current Corps Commander: The current Corps Commander of the Security Unit is Kyasarin Shihan.

Unit 3, Reconnaissance Unit

The third branch of the Onmitsukidō. It is ranked the third-highest out of the five Units in the faction. The main responsibility of the Reconnaissance Unit (Recon Unit for short) is to gather information on enemies and enemy locations through highly organized spy missions. The members of this Unit may even be sent as spies to Hueco Mundo in the coming future, although this matter is still just a passing rumour. Every member of the Reconnaissance Unit must be highly proficient at stealth and all must have relatively good memories in order to be able to give accurate reports. The members of the 3rd Unit wear the customary black uniform and are always the first with new information, whether it is spy intel or simply happenings around the Seireitei.

Current Corps Commander: The current Corps Commander of the Reconnaissance Unit is Sigint Kageen.

Unit 4, Assassination Unit

The fourth branch of the Onmitsukidō. It is ranked the fourth-highest out of the five Units in the faction. The main responsibility of the Assassination Unit is all in the title: the members of the 4th Unit are specially trained mercenaries tasked with hunting down and killing rogue shinigami. In rare cases, however, they are only asked to apprehend. When this is the case, the apprehended criminals are then handed over to the Maggot’s Nest, and are placed under care of the Seireitei’s 10th Division jailers. The members of the Assassination Unit must be stealthy and must have the ability to track targets without being detected. The members of the 2nd Unit wear the customary black uniform and generally don’t give much care who it is they kill, as long as the means are justified in the views of the Onmitsukidō and the Central 46.

Current Corps Commander: The current Corps Commander of the Assassination Unit is Nao.

Unit 5, Intelligence Unit

The fifth and final branch of the Onmitsukidō. It is ranked the lowest out of the five Units in the faction. The main responsibility of the Intelligence Unit (Intel Unit for short) is to take information collected on enemies by the Reconnaissance Unit and process it into detailed reports which are then given to the 8th Division to assist with strategic planning sessions and to update their information gathered for preparation for a cold war. The members of the Intel Unit rarely engage in combat and spend most of their time in a headquarters separate from the Onmitsukidō’s main headquarters and are rarely seen anywhere else, except when delivering information. The members of the 5th Unit are the only exception to the regular black uniform, and wear black pants, a loose-fitting white jacket with a hood covering most of the face, and a backpack stuffed full of data and report papers. Its members are highly proficient at interpreting and processing data.

Current Corps Commander: Unknown.
