Kuchiki Taichou finally was able ta translate some passages about th' Dragon Arrow. There wasn't much for him ta get, but maybe it was enough. Turns out that the arrow was made by the "Dragon King," a real old spirit that was cast out of the Soul Society three thousand years ago, or somethin' like that... Back then he was a friend of the Soul King. Same guy that made Son Goku's bo staff. One of th' greatest weapon makers of all time. I dunno what happened to get him thrown out, but the Taichou said it was real important that we find him... before Aizen does! 'Course, "we" means me... so I found myself off on another mission, ta find the Dragon King.
