Maybe he was born in the Soul Society like the Gate Guards most likely were.
My stupid "theory" : he was a normal animal and was taken as a pet by a shinigami living in the real world. By being constantly exposed to the shinigami's reiatsu, he awakened his own powers. When he died, he became a shinigami, giving him a more human-like appearance while retaining some of his animal features.
Or perhaps he is a sort of experiment made by a crazy shinigami scientist.
Seriously, I agree with OrangeRat, he was probably born in SS like the guardians (even they don't look like "normal" shinigamis).
I agree he probably born or perhaps even created in SS. Maybe a R&D experiment. Or a pet whose sense grew due to shinigami interaction. Perhaps it has something to do with Tousen.
Maybe he was somehow like Grimmjow..? Idk...Maybe hes just an experiment.
Grimmjow was a human, who became a hollow, who joined with other hollows, and evolved, and took on the shape of a panther. Shinigami...can't really do that.
Maybe his spirit was just so...foxy (I mean, he's like a fox XP) that, as a soul, he's got a fox head. Or, in his life, he actually had a big fox head.
if i remember correctly o-o wasnt he a normal person and then was cursed at some point
He was cursed? I don't remember that, but I guess it...makes sense. Was he cursed as a human or as a Plus/Shinigami?
well im guessin he wouldve had to be cursed as a plus/shinigami. unless he was cursed while alive then died and manifested as a fox in SS.
I will take a wild guess and say that Komamura was in SS and originally looked like a normal human but he was so badly hurt that his"spirit" was placed in a fox-like body engineered in SS labs. The scientist/doctor who operated on Komamura was killed/died later and so Komamura became a shinigami to honour his memory by maintaining order and protecting the living from hollows.
i don't know i really want to though as hes one of the captains that i want to see more from Komamura With his foxy head and his awesome bankai and shikai would really like to see more fights from him maybe using his bankai against a giant arrancar. But i really would like to know his origin because he has a really close reltion with yammamoto or so the manga said i think
but i think off topic a little wasnt it mentioned that the gate gurdian was once known as hercules or something like that when he was alive?
I'd say he was roadkill in the real world, only to attain captain status after travelling to soul society ! XD
i would say he is a zookeeper of a fox and they died together in a terrible mess that their soul got mesh together resulting in such an outcome...haha
