I'll assume you are joking..
That was Kaien Shiba, related to Kukaku Shiba and Ganju Shiba, from what I remember he also graduated the academy in some insane amount of time either 1 year or 4 years, something like that. I like that we saw him and by the time he gets to Rukia's timeline and flashbacks he said he's been doing the fukutaicho gig a while..
