Kon is a Modified Soul, or Kaizo Konpaku. In his first form that was ever seen he resembles a spherical Pez candy. That is until he is consumed by Ichigo, then he inhabits Ichigo's body until he is removed by Rukia or someone else with a means of seperating souls from bodies. After his first adventures in Ichigo's body the gang finds a new body for the loud mouthed personality to inhabit, a stuffed animal lion. In this body Kon is a tan-ish lion doll with short triangular fingerd and mane. His mouth is a lighter beige and at one different times he has various "accessories", like a flower on his ear or a cross stitched into the back of his "scalp."
Kon pretty much has a very easily described personality: annoying, perverted, and loud. The little guy tends to run off at the mouth a lot, usually resulting in him getting stepped on, or chased. When Kon isn't running his mouth he usually has one goal,, hooking up with a beautiful woman. Kon has an obsession with meeting the right lady and finding his "paradise" with her (pretty easy to know what he means when you realize he stares at women's chest a lot.) Occassionally Kon does show a nobler side, puting his pride and own self in harms way to help others.

Kon is a Mod Soul that was programmed to have super strength in his legs, which gives him several other abilities.
