Homura (ほむら, Homura) is the elder sister of Shizuku. Her name was given to her by Rukia Kuchiki. While Homura normally appears as a sweet, cheerful, and energetic teenage girl, she is actually rather stubborn, single-minded, selfish, hostile towards anyone other than Rukia and Shizuku, and somewhat naive and misguided. These traits lead her to act irrationally in most situations, due to a century of suffering in Hueco Mundo. She harbors a deep hatred to Shinigami, mocking them and claiming they only reap everything away from the very souls they supposedly protect. She shows no fear of dying. She holds Rukia so dear she is prepared to take extreme measures to be with her, even if it means she and Shizuku fusing with her, which would destroy Rukia.
