Marechiyo Ōmaeda is the lieutenant of the 2nd Division, under Captain Soifon. He is a large man with an equally large mouth who comes across as arrogant and dull. His skill level as a shinigami remains unknown, however, it is thought that he received his position as lieutenant because of his family's connections. He also seems to be a coward. He likes to eat fried rice crackers wherever he is. His captain has been known to beat him up when crumbs from the crackers fall on her hair. He can also be seen in most appearances picking his nose.
