Soul Reapers (also known as "Shinigami") are a race of spiritual beings that act as enforcers and psychopomps who all share similar supernatural powers. They are souls with a high level of innate Spiritual Energy, recruited from the ranks of the residents and nobility of the Soul Society. Like all spirits, they cannot be detected by normal humans. Soul Reapers use their Zanpakuto, supernatural swords that are the manifestation of their owners' power, to perform soul burials on Wholes. Soul Reapers also use their Zanpakuto as well as magic known as Kido to fight their arch-enemies, the Hollows.
