Kumiko Ishida is a Echt Quincy residing in Karakura Town. She was a former student at Karakura Town, where she was a classmate of Ichigo's. She is a former member of the Wandenreich, alongside her husband, Uryū Ishida, where she held the designation "M" - "The Masquerade". She is the mother of Gemischt Quincy, Yoshida Ishida.
AppearanceEditKumiko is an attractive person with long, dirty blonde hair usually held in a high ponytail but sometimes worn long, usually when she is home, and often wears a wool dress underneath a white apron.
Her second outfit consists of a top resembling a combination of a tube top and corset attached to a choker around her neck with a metal arrow-like attachment. Her arms are covered by detached sleeves which match the style of her top which are long enough to cover her hands when standing normally, and pants matching the shirt as well, with a boot cut style and beige elevator shoes.
At the start of Bleach, Kumiko showed herself to be an extremely introverted, lonely individual. She wanted friends, but was afraid of being rejected, which prevented her from approaching anyone and caused her to become secluded and develop a schedule which cut out social interaction. She went as far as to use the Quincy fast-movement method, Hirenkyaku in order to escape Ichigo Kurosaki.
To some, Kumiko came across as a very cold and uncaring individual, detaching herself and ignoring the problems of others. This was, in part, because friends Kumiko previously had talked to her about their own problems but discarded hers, refusing to listen. She grew used to it before she moved to Karakura Town, and when she finally moved to Karakura Town, she simply set herself to ignoring other's problems but not focusing on her own.
However, after Ichigo befriended her and helped her become friends with Yasutora Sado, Keigo Asano, Mizuiro Kojima, Orihime Inoue, Uryu Ishida, and Rukia Kuchiki, she started working to improve herself and showed that she was actually very kind and caring, only needing the right people to encourage her to show such qualities. She also revealed that she was rather shy around new people, particularly about her past and what happened to her parents.
