The Gotei 13 (護廷十三隊, Goteijūsantai; 13 Division Imperial Guards, 13 Court Guard Squads in the English dub, 13 Court Guard Companies in the English manga) is the organization which most Shinigami join, and one of the three main branches of military in Soul Society.

he Gotei 13 was founded-by Genryūsai Shigekuni Yamamoto, who is also the current captain-commander.[1 The organization whose main duty is to defend the Seireitei, the center of Soul Society. The companies are assigned to defend different areas of the Seireitei. It is split into thirteen divisions (hence the name), with several divisions having certain specializations.[2] The Gotei 13 is subservient to the edicts of the Central 46 Chambers. The symbol of the Gotei 13 is a rhombus, all the 13 Divisions symbols are placed within the rhombus on the back of the Captains haori. Officially, the Kidō Corps and Onmitsukidō are not part of the Gotei 13. However, as Soifon is both the captain of the 2nd Division and the head of the Onmitsukidō, the Onmitsukidō is effectively under Gotei 13 control. In addition, the captain of the Kidō Corps has been known to obey summons and orders from the Captain-commander of the Gotei 13.[3] ]
