He loves the colors black and purple therefore most of his wardrobe consists of those colors. He wears the standard captain uniform along with a white scarf made by the master weaver, Tsujishirō Kuroemon III. The scarf is made from the silver-white, windflower light silk (ginpaku kazahana no uzuginu) and is a family heirloom that is handed down from generation to generation and is given to each head of the Kuchiki family. The scarf alone is worth ten mansions in the Seireitei. He also wears fingerless white tekkou that covers only the back of his hands.
Byakuya acts in an aristocratic manner — he always seems serene and apathetic towards other people, even while actually deeply conflicted. He is also notably calm, even in battle.Byakuya is very perceptive and is fully aware of the limits of his abilities and usually anything he states in comparison to an opponent is justified.Byakuya strongly believes in law and order.He likes Japanese cherry blossoms, night-time walks, spicy food and bananas, but he does not like sweets. Byakuya also excels in calligraphy. He feels that if someone in his position does not follow the rules as a good example, no one else will.

Raiton - needs training
Byakuya was prodigy growing up in the Kuchiki clan. He especially excelled in the academy as when he entered the ninja academy, he graduated on top of his class in 2 years.
He grew up with high expectations but easily broke through by sheer will determination. He trains in hope of one day surpassing his grandfather, the famous jonin Ginrei who was known as the Deadly Swallow in his time. Whenever Byakuya goes on a mission, his teammates always gives him the responsibility of the most dangerous task because one, they were jeolous of him, too, they were envious and knew themselves that they couldn't do it.
Due to the fact that he is somewhat arrogant and confident in his skills, he doesn't have many friends and does not know how to make friends. But, he always respects and fear his Sempai and Sensei earning him praise from the higher ups. He doesn't believe in having big dreams like becoming Hokage, but taking time slowly to figure out your skills and progress and decide from there. He highly belittles anyone who thinks they are more powerful than him and lectures his enemies before finishing them off. When it comes to fighting, he believes in defeating his opponents fair and square with no handicaps and with no advantages, he believes in it so deeply that for if his opponent fights with one arm cut off, Byakuya would do the same. He would spend countless hours training, in preparation to take over the leadership of the Kuchiki family.
Byakuya is a master of swordsmanship, capable of flawless precision and lethal attacks with little effort. Byakuya is a highly perceptive fighter, being able to almost immediately determine an opponent's attack patterns and weaknesses. He is also a crafty tactician, as demonstrated from how effectively he uses his Kidō to confuse his opponents. He can discern the motives and abilities of his opponents and effectively uses his knowledge to end the battle in his favor.While not having the most imposing appearance compared to other Shinigami captains like Kenpachi Zaraki, Byakuya has shown to be a very resilient fighter. During his fight against Ichigo, despite gaining severe injuries, Byakuya was still able to continue fighting effectively and even ignored his wounds to the point that he seemed unfazed by them. At the end of the fight, he was still able to perform an impressive Flash Step to leave. During his fight with the 7th Espada Zommari Rureaux, Byakuya's durability proved great enough for him to willingly damage himself to escape from his enemy's possession attack and continued to fight as if he was unaffected, eventually obtaining victory. During his fight with Tsukishima, he had his entire left arm mutilated by Senbonzakura, and still was able to defeat the Fullbringer
