Chuushin Kokoromi (試み=忠臣, lit. Loyal Endeavour) is the Lieutenant of the Gotei 13's 1st Division, and the subordinate of Kenshin Iaiseiei.
Chuushin is a man of duty and represents that through his appearance. He appears as an elderly man with a broad and surprisingly muscular physique despite his age. He has long grey hair which is tied in a topknot at the top whilst the rest is left flowing. His facial hair is very prominent, and goes down his entire head, whilst his beard is separated into five different segments. He tends to wear the standard shinigami robes with a single robe over these that has a silver shoulder-guard that appears to have the shape of a white lotus.
Personality and Traits
As far as personality goes, Chuushin is open-minded, kind, calm, and a rather friendly old man who looks out for those in the Gotei 13, even his captain. Even so, he is perfectly capable of giving others, even enemies stellar advice, and enjoys watching those under his charge develop with his guidance. He believes in living life to the fullest; and encourages the same in others who he meets.
Nevertheless, as his name indicates, he is fiercely loyal to his commander; and attempts to assist him no matter how bad the situation. However, when he believes that Kenshin is treading in deep water, Chuushin will not hesitate to guide him back onto the right path.
Not much about Chuushin's past is known; though he seems to be an old friend of the Captain-Commander's.
