Death gods. Soul Reapers. Spirits of death. Shinigami.
We are called by many names, but our job remains the same. We fight to keep the worlds in balance, unseen to the human eye. To protect them and ourselves, so we each may see another day. In every battle our souls are on the line so others will be saved. Day in and day out we train, so that hollows will fear our name.
Many years after Aizen's betrayal and defeat and the Quincy Blood War, Soul Society is finally back into its normal rhythm. Shinigami numbers are recovering and Seireitei is more or less rebuilt. The Living World is none the wiser about all that happened, save for the few humans who have a connection to the Spirit World.
Forums rules are my rules
Please be as active as you can, if you have a busy schedule and won't be on much let me know ^^
This is a literate rp, I don't have a sentence requirement, but at least give the person rp-ing with you something to work with
No god-modding or perfect characters. This is Bleach so characters can be pretty powerful, but try to keep it reasonable. No one in Bleach is invincible
If you are a manga reader/further ahead in the anime than someone, the spoiler tag is your friend (or just avoid saying spoilers)
I have a limit on the number of substitute shinigami (2) and visoreds (5). Not all humans have spiritual powers like Ichigo, and Soul Society stopped the creation of visoreds so naturally there are not many.
An OC may not have the same zanpakuto/resurrection as a canon character, these are all unique to the user
Please try and keep the character genders even ^^
You may rp a canon character, but take note this rp takes place after the anime and end of the manga
If you are gone without warning for two weeks your characters will be deleted. If you come back after this and still want to be a part of the rp just let me know and I will add you back.
For plots, I would appreciate it if nothing big is done without running it by me first. I am working on a few plots, but if you have an idea let me know!
Spirit world where the shinigami live and where most souls dwell. Aside from the slowed aging and lack of hunger, life here is much like that in the living world (just not as modern, think 1600s Japan). The Human World and Soul Society are parallel to each other and are two sides of the same coin. Families separated by death are rarely reunited in the Soul Society unless they arrive in Soul Society together. People live nestled together like a family of strangers. One never gets hungry (if she or he doesn't have spiritual powers) and aging is slowed to a great extent, with lifespans of 2000 or more years not being unheard of, though such ages are limited to Shinigami or other Soul Society dwellers with high spiritual power. Children can be born as they are in the Human World. People can also be killed as regular Humans are, though they are capable of surviving wounds that would normally be considered fatal. A soul that dies in Soul Society is reincarnated on Earth as a new Human with no past memories.
Largest portion of Soul Society and the most populated. It is divided into 320 districts (80 in North Rukongai, 80 in West Rukongai, 80 in South Rukongai, 80 in East Rukongai). They are numbered based on how close they are to Seireitei. The lower numbers are wealthy and peaceful, where the nobility reside (such as the Kuchiki family), but the higher numbered districts increasingly decay into nothing more than slums.
Center of Soul Society, a circular shiro with four main entrances, each guarded by a Gatekeeper. The walls of Seireitei are made of stone called Sekkiseki (spirit reducing stone), a material known to negate all Reiryoku. The stone also forms a spherical barrier around the city which stops anything spiritual from breaching it. This is where all the shinigami are stationed, and where the division barracks are located.
Also called Shinigami Academy, it trains souls with spritual power for the military branches of Soul Society. The Academy is a sprawling, multiple story building with architecture similar to that of Seireitei. It has an open courtyard, many classrooms, dormitories and practice areas. The Academy's curriculum is taught over six-years, though exceptionally gifted students have been known to graduate from the academy in less. In addition to a more general education, the pupils are taught how to control and make use of their Reiatsu, as well as the four major Shinigami combat forms: Hakuda, Hohō, Kidō, and Zanjutsu. Students also learn how to perform Soul Burials, how to communicate with the spirit of their Zanpakutō, and are prepared for the general duties of a Shinigami. Upon completing the Academy's curriculum, a student will then apply to join a division of the Gotei 13, Kidō Corps or Onmitsukidō.
Self-explanatory, it's the living world where humans live. Pluses, Quincies, Fullbringers, and Bounts reside here, and Urahara's shop is located here. Hollows often make visits to prey on human souls, and shinigami are stationed here to prevent this. The concentration of reishi is lower than in Soul Society or Hueco Mundo. A shinigami's spiritual power may influence the surrounding people and areas if strong enough, so the more powerful shinigami are required to have limits placed on their power.
The dimension in which Hollow and Arrancar usually reside. It lies in between the Human World and Soul Society. An unchanging night covers the sky, an endless white desert covers the ground. The tree-like objects are not plants, but rather quartz-like minerals.The moon is on the opposite lunar phase of that in the Human World. The vast desert seems to lack any bodies of water and contains rocky formations. Like in Soul Society, the atmosphere is filled with a high concentration of Reishi, thus allowing smaller Hollows to gain nourishment despite the lack of Human souls. Similar to the case of real world deserts, active life in Hueco Mundo appears to be few and far between. Hollows generally dwell below the surface or in other areas until something provokes them to leave their shelter. It can only be accessed via Garganta, which tears the dimensional fabric separating the worlds, allowing Hollows to travel to any other dimension at will. There is no formal government or organization here. It is a land where whoever is the strongest will survive.
A series of buildings surrounded by a large dome. A large-scale conflict reduced it to rubble, but after many years it has now been more or less rebuilt. Previously occupied by Sousuke Aizen's entourage, it is now held by whichever hollows are strong enough to keep it for themselves.
There exists a vast forest underneath Hueco Mundo where Menos-class Hollows reside. The trees in this forest extend to the surface and dot the landscape above ground. The Adjuchas-class Menos which reside in this forest were previously under the control of Aizen, though now there is nothing controlling them.
The place where Hollows are sent if they were wicked when they were alive. The Zanpakutō of a Shinigami can only cleanse spirits of the sins they committed as Hollows. If the spirit committed heinous crimes as a Human, it will be sent through the Gates of Hell instead of Soul Society. There are five levels, the highest carrying the majority of residents, and the lower levels worsen as you go deeper.
Humans are normal, living people, most of whom cannot see or sense disembodied spirits in any way. One in 50,000 Humans is a medium with some awareness of nearby ghosts, but only a third of these are able to see them clearly and only the strongest of mediums are able to speak with or touch ghosts. Certain unique Humans naturally have both the power to sense and the strength to fight with spirits. Ordinary Humans can gain the ability to interact with spirits by spending time around a large source of spirit energy. >Quincy : The Quincy are a clan of spiritually aware Humans who once fought against the Hollows, using weapons composed of spiritual energy to slay them. As opposed to Shinigami, Quincy absorb and channel energy from their surroundings to fight. Unlike the Shinigami method of killing Hollows which allows the Hollow to enter Soul Society, the Quincy technique simply obliterates the Hollow's soul entirely. Their main weapons are bows and arrows made from reishi, and their uniforms are all white with some black, silver, or blue usually. Echt Quincies are pure-blooded and Gemischt are mixed-blooded. Many marriages in Quincy families are arranged to keep the bloodlines pure. >Bount : The Bounts are a clan of Human beings with high spiritual energy and special powers. They were accidentally created by Shinigami scientists looking for a way to create eternal life. Bounts consume the souls of Human beings to survive; theoretically, a Bount could live forever by doing so. Although the Bounts have a strict rule to consume only the souls of the dead, some Bounts choose to drain souls from living Humans in order to become more powerful. Each Bount uses a "Doll" in combat, a type of familiar spirit possessing its own special abilities. Every doll is unique and is a manifestation of the user's power. If the doll is destroyed, its owner is destroyed as well. >Fullbringer: subset of Humans, being that they are living beings who are spiritually aware and were born with the eponymous ability Fullbring, which allows them to manipulate the souls that reside in all physical matter. Their powers are constituted by Hollow Reiryoku. They have an affinity to a certain object from where they base and draw their powers.
Souls with inner spiritual power, recruited from the ranks of the residents and nobility of Soul Society. Like all spirits, they cannot be detected by normal Humans. Shinigami use their Zanpakutō, supernatural swords that are the manifestation of their owners' power, to perform soul burials on Pluses. Shinigami also use Zanpakutō and magic known as Kidō to fight Hollows. >Visored: Shinigami who have also obtained Hollow powers through "illegal" means, gaining removable masks and access to certain Hollow abilities. The original visored were a failed experiment that attempted to merge shinigami and hollows.
Evil ghosts who reside in Hueco Mundo, but travel to the Human World to feed on the souls of the living and dead alike. Like Shinigami, Hollows are made of spiritual matter and cannot be detected by ordinary Humans. While the majority of Hollows can be overcome by the average Shinigami, there are some which surpass even the most elite Shinigami in strength. All normal Hollows wear white masks and have a hole where their heart used to be. The holes can be anywhere, not just on the chest, and it is said that when their hearts were taken out they turned into the mask. >Gillian (Menos Grande): huge monster Hollows at least 2-6 stories tall, easily dwarfing even the largest standard Hollow. They all have a white mask with an elongated nose. Their bodies are covered from their head to their feet with a black covering reminiscent of a cloak. Around their neck is a row of thin white spikes. They have large, pointed feet wrapped in white bandages. They have large white hands with long, sharp, white nails, but they are commonly hidden within their cloak, rarely revealed even in combat. They have long tongues capable of breaking a fellow Hollow's mask. >Adjuchas: smaller than Gillians and far fewer in number; much smarter and stronger than Gillians, and often the ones who lead Gillians into battle; commonly solitary creatures, rarely joining into groups; powerful enough to challenge a shinigami captain; vary radically in appearance, anywhere from bulky humanoids to the jaguar-like form of pre-Arrancar Grimmjow Jaegerjaquez. >Vasto Lorde: third classification of Menos and the highest level of evolution; extremely small Hollows, roughly the same size as humans, and are extremely rare in number; it is said that their entire number within Hueco Mundo can be counted with the fingers on one's hands; combat capabilities of a Vasto Lorde are above those of the shinigami captains >Arrancar: Hollows that have broken off part of their Hollow mask. By shattering their masks, these Hollows regain the ability to reason, sometimes obtain a Humanoid form, and gain access to Shinigami-esque powers >????: An even higher form of hollow, beyond arrancar and vasto lorde. Virtually everything is unknown about it, including how they are created and what their attributes are. Only one has been encountered so far. It had a humanoid form with no visible mask, but still exhibited a hole.
Longevity and Power Shinigami age at a much slower rate and are much more durable than normal humans. They also naturally possess high levels of reiryoku (spiritual power) and reiatsu, and as a consequence much eat (as opposed to normal spirits who never hunger).
Zanpakuto A Shinigami weapon, its shape is typically similar to a Japanese katana. Low ranking officers are issued an Asauchi sword, but high-ranking officers arm themselves with unique swords generated from their own souls. A Zanpakutō is a physical manifestation of this force concentrated into a blade. All Shinigami have a Zanpakutō, but not all of them carry one with them. Its shape differs depending on its owner.
Konso (Soul Burial) Technique for sending wandering Pluses to Soul Society or the Underworld. Konsō is performed by using the hilt of the Shinigami's Zanpakutō, tapping the soul on their forehead and transporting them to the afterlife.
Hollow Cleansing When a Shinigami slays a Hollow with their Zanpakutō, they cleanse their sins. Once this takes place, a Hollow will return to its former state as a Plus and is led into Soul Society. This is called sublimation.
Soul-Body Separation This technique allows a Hollow to forcibly extract a living spirit from his/her body. It is usually not used because Hollows tend to go after Pluses, who have no physical or living body to speak of.
Acidic Touch When a Hollow grabs a Human with their hands, the spot where the person was grabbed is burned as if acid were poured onto it. These wounds seem to allow the Hollow's Reiatsu to seep into the person, causing great pain to the victim. The wounds can heal if given enough time, and it is unknown if this ability works on Shinigami or other spiritually powerful beings.
Cero A highly powerful and relatively swift energy blast which can be fired from various body parts, such as the mouth, tongue, hand, or fingers. Only Menos, Arrancar, and Visored have used Cero attacks, and it appears stronger entities can use it more efficiently and forcefully. With the exception of a few Cero techniques and users, Cero requires some time to be used effectively, so the enemy must be not moving, busy with something else, or too badly wounded to even simply dodge it. There exist a number of variations of Cero, which are usually unique to the Arrancar using it.
Garganta This is how Hollows and Arrancar move to and from Hueco Mundo. It literally tears open the dimensional fabric separating the worlds, revealing a tunnel of whirling, torrential energy which must be focused and solidified to create a discernible pathway.
Negacion These fields are used to rescue fellow Hollows. Only the Gillian-class Menos have used it. Negación are square beams which engulf the target in a towering beam of light which completely isolates them from the dimension they are currently in, making it impossible to harm them from the outside of the impenetrable pillar. The field draws those within the interior towards the Menos which created it. Espada have a special cube-shaped device called Caja Negación, meant to simulate Negación fields, which are used to trap and punish their subordinates if necessary.
High-Speed Regeneration This is an ability which allows a Hollow to heal most injuries very quickly, with the exception of the destruction of the head or vital organs. It has been said that most Arrancar gave up this ability for far greater strength.
Bara An arrancar technique that fires hardened spiritual pressure. Less powerful than a Cero, but can be successively fired at 20 times the rate.
Hierro An Arrancar's outer skin with high spiritual hardness that serves as armor.
Pesquisa An Arrancar's ability to measure and locate Reiatsu.
Resurrección Releasing the core of an Arrancar's ability sealed in their Zanpakutō to regain the original powers of their Hollow form. They often take on a form closer to a Hollow than a Human after performing Resurrección.
Sonido The arrancar equivalent of shinigami shunpo.
Gran Rey Cero By mixing their own blood with a Cero, an Espada can fire a Cero with much greater attack power and speed, in addition to having a change of color unique to them. It is many times more powerful than a normal Cero, disturbing the fabric of space as it travels. Upon release, it spins like a razor as it compresses and decompresses due to the sheer speed and raw power. Using a Gran Rey Cero is one of two things forbidden while inside Las Noches, for it is so overwhelming it could destroy the fortress. Only the highest level arrancar/vasto lorde are able to use this technique.
Reishi Manipulation A Quincy uses the Reishi in the atmosphere, and combines it with his/her Reiryoku to create weapons. They fight using a power from outside. They have an easier time collecting this energy in environments with higher concentrations of Reishi such as in Soul Society or Hueco Mundo. To a sufficiently powerful Quincy, there is no difference between Reishi and Reiryoku as a source of power. The ability to manipulate such energy allows for a variety of abilities offensive, defensive and supportive.
Spiritual Awareness Quincies can sense hollows, pluses, shinigami, and other spiritual beings at a significant distance.
Archery It is the most used form of combat among the Quincy. Since they're still human, maintaining a distance from highly dangerous Hollows as well as launching numerous attacks on multiple opponents gives them a great advantage offensively and defensively.
Ginto A capsule-shaped tool used by Quincy to store their Reiryoku. It is an antiquated tool, but the use of it allows Quincy to perform certain techniques.
Hirenkyaku An advanced Quincy moving technique. It allows for high- speed movements by riding on the flow of Reishi created below the user's feet.
Blut A Quincy ability that gives a practitioner inhuman defensive and offensive capability. By making Reishi flow into their blood vessels, Quincy increase their attack and defense power drastically. Though Blut is significantly dangerous, it has one big flaw; the two forms of Blut for attack and defense work using two different Reishi systems, so they cannot be used at the same time. Echt Quincy inherits it from birth while Gemischt Quincy must train to attain it.
Ransotengai A high-level technique that allows the user to control their body parts using strings of Reiryoku controlled by their brain, forming lines or strings out of Reishi. By using this technique, the user can control their body as one would a puppet, allowing them to move freely despite paralysis, broken limbs, or any other force that would impede normal movement. It is a very rare technique, very few Quincy have trained enough to achieve it.
Letzt Stil The last resort for a Quincy reached after removing the Sanrei Glove. It gives the user a tremendous amount of power, but at the price of loss of their powers upon its completion.
Vollständig A part of Quincy evolution and the answer to the drawbacks of the outdated Quincy: Letzt Stil. It is the easiest ability to understand because a practitioner's appearance and power change drastically. It gives the user complete reishi dominance, allows them to fly with wings made of reishi, allows them to create a much more powerful spirit weapon, and in general gives them much more strength. It is similar to the resurreccion of the arrancar, and usually gives the Quincy an almost angelic look with things such as wings and a halo. However it takes years of intense training to achieve and is very taxing on stamina. (link above gives much more information)
Kirchenlied: Sankt Zwinger A powerful Quincy spell that creates an area of Reishi shaped with countless Quincy crosses protruding from the ground: Though its effects remain unseen, it has been described as "the spell of maximum protection among the Quincy techniques of offense and defense" and stated the "light of the lord" will "strike dead" anything which comes within its limits.
Quincy Cross A cross in the shape of the Quincy symbol that only those who have inherited Quincy abilities and techniques are allowed to possess. Standard equipment for any Quincy, the Quincy Cross acts as the focus for a Quincy bow, known as a Heilig Bogen.
Seele Schneider The Seele Schneider is a thin sword that can be fired similarly to an arrow. It's much longer than a standard arrow and functions something like a chainsaw: the Reishi of its blade vibrate at ultra-high frequencies, loosening the molecular bonds between any spirit matter it cuts so that the Quincy user may easily absorb the freed spirit particles. It has been said that using it increases one's spiritual power.
Kazuki is a tall and slender man with graceful features but still keeps an authoritative air about him. His eyes are a piercing bright yellow, standing out from his pale complexion, and more often than not a relaxed grin or smirk plays across his face. His eyes are framed by a pair of light silver rimmed glasses. His hair is a bright lavender and neatly parted off to one side. He wears the normal shinigami uniform with a tight dark purple turtleneck underneath the black, and the sash tied around his waist is lime green. His haori is sleeveless and reaches the floor. On the outside Kazuki appears as a calm, intelligent, and complacent man. He has great confidence in the captains and all other shinigami underneath him, and doesn't take his power for granted. He likes things to be clean and colorful, and is a bit eccentric for a captain commander. The name of Kazuki's zanpakuto is Beradon'na (Nightshade), and is released by the command "Put to death, Beradon'na". His shikai takes the form of a pair of tessen fans. The fans are black in color with silver blades and pink and purple swirling flower designs. He can throw the individual fans that make up the fan, and if they make contact with the target highly toxic poison is spread throughout their body. He has some control over the toxicity of the poison, though he usually prefers the "slow and painful death" setting. He also can direct wind with the fans, and the thrown blades replenish themselves in a few seconds. He has achieved bankai, and one skill he gains is the ability to send poisonous roots through the ground, and greater control over the poison and wind so that even the wind carries the poison. Kazuki is pretty new to his position, only having been appointed to Captain-commander a few years ago. Prior to this he was captain of the Fifth Division. The Central 46 appointed him for his outside appearance, for they did not know what passions lay underneath that quiet mask. Now that he has been promoted, Kazuki is slowly revealing his true self. Past captain-commanders worked to sustain the status quo of Soul Society, but he wants to break it. He doesn't care if some disagree with his methods, he believes he has Seireitei's best interests in mind. [Kuragehime ]
Second Division: Onmitsukido, aka special operations (assassinations, stealth ops, detention, messaging)
Emi stands a shorter height of 5'2" with a lean and athletic build to her. Soft curves but nothing major and lightly tanned skin from hours in the sunshine training. Across her cheeks are a soft hint of freckling though often only visible in sunlight rather than the light of the offices and quarters. Her hair is snowy white and falls to her waist. Though half of it is kept back in a bun witha pair of black chopsticks. Her bangs frame her face and drift into her eyes here and there. Emi's eyes are a steely gray color framed by thick black lashes. Beneath her Captain's uniform she wears a short cropped, loose black t-shirt with white trim on the bottom hem and sleeve hems. Her pants are the normal black though with tight ankles and the normal Shinigami tabi on her feet. Her Captain's haori is full sleeved and reaches the floor though is often worn off her shoulders. A sweet and warmindividual, Emi is always open to converse with her fellow Shinigami. She is very approachable and mild in nature. Orderly and well organized clutter can often drive her mad and she expects her division to keep themselves just as orderly as well. A lover of all of nature and the wild world she has a penchant for doing her work on the decks of the barracks rather than in her office. Being the Captain of the Second Division there is something to be feared of the trained assassin and covert ops Captain despite her mild nature and warm demeanor. Emi's zanpkuto is named Mamushi after the common Japanese viper. In its normal state it rests as a normal katana at her side. The hilt wrapped in deep red ribbon and the gaurd shaped a like a shuriken star. A good length for her body and a slightly lighter blade than most, other than that, Mamushi is a normal katana. As a shikai, Mamushi is activated by the phrase, "Strike them, Mamushi". After that, the katana splits into two tanto knives. The left tanto is larger, about the length of Emi's forearm, and has a slightly thicker blade than the right. The right blade being a bit shorter and more slender in shape, though both with nicely tapered edges and extremely sharp blades. In Shikai the two separate blades take on different names, but are still collectively Mamushi. The longer and thicker left one is called Shinkei-kei. The second, smaller and more slender of the two is called Shukketsu. Shinkei-kei's hilt is wrapped in soft golden ribbon and Shukketsu's is a deep red color. Both hilts of each blade end in a sharp, 3in' spike resembling a snake's fang. When cut with the end fang of Shinkei-kei, the opponent is injected with a small bit of nuerotoxin. After a time of exposure they can have muscle spasms, paralysis of the area, and slow overall paralysis. When cut with the fang of Shukketsu, the opponent is injected with a hemotoxin. This attacks the blood and causes blood cells to rupture and anti-coagulation to occur (wounds will continue to bleed). When sparring with fellow Shinigami, Emi rarely uses her Shikai and when she does she will almost never use the fanged ends of her blades. The after affects of the venom fade, the further one distances themselves from Emi and Mamushi and given time they fade entirely, though prolonged exposure and multiple hits will lengthen the time, affects, and reprecusions. The Captain has been able to achieve Bankai, known as Mamushi maebure. Mamushi's returns to the katana before though with a more ragged and natural appearance. No hilt and simply tattered deep red wrappings with ends that behave almost snake-like. A longer, sharper blade that appears to be almost bone-like in color and material as well. From the places where Emi's hands meet the blade, her hands turn almost scale-like with a pattern mimicking the viper namesake. Emi is a vegetarian, given her great love of nature, she can't bear to think of eating a living thing. She is also an avid reader and enjoys teaching greatly, when not in her office or attending to duties she'll often sneak away into the Rungokai, where she was born, and read to and teach the children (not many people know about this part so she works to keep it a secret).

Takeshi is a tall man, about 5'11", built thin yet strong. His hair is fluffy and light cream in color, falling unevenly to the nape of his neck. His bangs consist of shorter strands that frame his face and a few fall down the center, and he usually pulls his hair into a short half-ponytail. The sleeves of his uniform are about 3/4 length and he wears dark red gloves that only cover the middle finger of each hand, and go up to his elbows. He is blunt and snarky when speaking, rarely giving the proper respect to anyone other than the other captains. He is intelligent and skilled, both giving way to arrogance. He can be rather solitary, but will team up with others if needed for a mission. Takeshi is usually good at putting up a strong front, but if you manage to back him into a corner you are in for a show. He can be very competitive when it comes to his training and fights, mainly if acquaintances in lower ranks catch up/surpass him in skill. His zanpakuto's name is Nogitsune-maru, and the shikai release is "Moyasu (Blaze), Nogitsune-maru!" The shikai is a pair of steel gauntlets that reach up just before his elbows. It is a steel grey color and the metal over the fingers is ivory-colored and pointed like giant claws. He can generate flames from the fingers by scraping them against something or striking them together like flint. He has no bankai yet (which frustrates him to no end), and no family that he can remember. He and Mizuki were classmates during their time at the Shinigami Academy. He is highly skilled in melee combat, and very proud of his speed. He has an aversion towards dogs, and his favorite food is inarizushi. Takeshi was formerly the lieutenant of the Eleventh Division and recently transferred to the Second as it "seemed more fitting of his skills" to quote the commander. [Kuragehime ]
Third Division: No special duties, currently the location for meetings of the Shinigami Women's Association
Mizuki has very long, raven black hair and she usually ties it up so that it does not get in the way of her fighting. Her bangs are brushed to the side, and sometimes cover her right eye. Her eyes are pale amber, and overall she has a fairly pale complexion. Her captain's coat has extra long sleeves and looks like it could be one or two sizes too big for her. She has a wide, dark purple and grey belt around her waist. Mizuki is a stickler for the rules when it comes to everyday work and things in Seireitei, and when it comes to fighting she gets very focused. When dealing with her squad members she has a sort of 'big sister' personality and treats them as though they are her younger siblings. Her Zanpakuto's name is Kurayami no Tora (Tiger of Darkness) and it is called by the command "Tiger of Darkness, rise from the shadow!" The shikai form is a dark colored katana with silver and light purple ribbons criss-crossing the hilt. In the shikai form, Mizuki can shoot/manipulate various forms of dark purple colored energy. The bankai's name is Kurayami no Seishin (Spirit of Darkness).The katana turns into a scythe which has a dark silver handle with a point at one end and a black ribbon flowing off towards the bottom. The blade of the scythe is extremely sharp and double-edged, and is deep ebony in color with some white spikes where it meets the handle. She had two younger "siblings" who lived with her in one of the middle Rukongai districts outside Seireitei, and no crush (yet). Mizuki has a weakness for sweets, and an immense curiosity for the human world. She will often wander over to the science division in her free time if a question pops into her mind. After everything that has happened to Squad 3 in the past, Mizuki is determined to get the whole squad in order and make more of a name for themselves. [Kuragehime ]
Kousei stands at a rather tall 6'3" with a lean frame, much like a runners. His arms are long and his legs are longer, though he may look like a string bean he has strength that would impress. Kousei normally has tousled chocolate brown hair that falls into his eyes when not kept back with his bandana. About his forehead Kousei wears a simple red bandana that keeps much of his hair out of his face at all times. Kousei's eyes are a light hazel color with green rimming the edge of his irises. Kousei sports the typical Shinigami garb on his normal days, though often rolls up the sleeves because he doesn't like them getting in his way. Kousei is a pretty welcoming and friendly fellow, he's happy to engage in conversation with anyone and is always up for some fun. He'll talk to anyone about anything and always tries to help out those who are having a rough day by making light of a situation. Kousei knows a thing or two about tricking people and enjoys slight of hand and pickpocketing in his free time for a good laugh. His jokes are harmless and simple, always making sure no one gets hurt by them. He's personable and honest to everyone, which may sometimes comes off as rude. Kousei is loyal to a fault with his companions and works hard to constantly ensure things are safe in Karakura Town. Under Mizuki, Kousei enjoys teasing the Captain a bit, just for fun here and there. Kousei enjoys the thrill that battle brings and almost seems to take it a joke at times, but don't take him lightly in a battle. For his laughability and charm, Kousei is as dangerous as any Shinigami out there. Kousei's zanpakuto is called Kokatsuna kitsune (cunning fox). It's blade is slender and flexible with red and orange ribbon wrapped about the hilt for a better grip on the blade. The katana is longer than most to fit Kousei's height a bit better. His shikai's call is "Watashi o kakusu, kitsune" (hide me, fox) his zanpakuto's blade becomes a bit wider and longer, though retains it's katana form. The orange ribbon about the hilt wraps around Kousei's hands binding the two of them together as well. With his shikai, Kousei is able to create mirage images of himself, trick the sense of his opponent to make them see or hear things, and move without almost any detection under a quick shroud of invisibility with enhanced speed. At this time however, there are faults in his mirages. He can only procur six copies of himself at one time, and his sensory tricks are not entirely seamless. In it's bankai form Kokatsuna kitsune becomes Shirubakitsune, released using its name. Kousei's legs become those of a silver fox's as well as gaining ears, bright silvery eyes, and nine silver tails like the Kitsunes of legends. He is able to use his tails as a shield against incoming attacks and his speed is increased even further. His katana changes to two smaller blades held in each hand and wrapped in silver ribbon that laces about his wrists. Kousei is able to travel at amazing speeds and uses mirages of himself once again, still only limited to six however. Kousei grew up on the street learning to fend for himself and con and beg for money and food. He was approached then he was 14 by a large man who told him about the life of a Shinigami and how special he was. Since then Kousei has devoted his life to serving the way of the Shinigami. Though he still retains some of the sly, street-rat lifestyle from before. Kousei has a special love for dogs and is terribly, terribly afraid of spiders. [𝓼𝓲𝓵𝓿 ]
Nakamura stand at a good six feet four inches in height and weighs about 250 pounds but doesn't look like it to his slender physice. He is 18. Nakamura has strait light blonde hair that reaches the top of his back and if not combed covers both of his eyes. His eyes are a like that of the heavens above, which is just a fancy way of saying light blue or azure. Nakamura doesn't look it but despite his slender like appearance he is quit well built. Nakamura has scares that cover his back and has one that runs over his left eye. His normal garb consists of what all soul reapers have to wear. Nakamura is the kind of man who gives his all, and then some, in everything that he does no matter if can be considered dangerous in some ways, such as training. Nakamura is the kind of guy who hates taking orders from others and will ignore anyone who tells him what to do, the only people that he does listen to are his captain and lieutenant. Nakamura might not seem like it but he does like the people in his division and considers them family, he especially considers his captain like a big sister. Narakuma is very impulsive meaning he often jumps into a battle without a plan. This has often lead him into great danger and is the reason he has so many scares. Nakamura is a good mix of long, mid, and close range fighting. This is due to his zanpakuto which is named Tengoku no Kuribā, or Heaven Clever. When it is not in its awakened form Tengoku no Kuribā looks like another normal katana with the only difference being the rapping around the handle, which is bright yellow. When his weapon is like this he sticks to close range combat. However when he awakens his weapon, by chanting," Split the heavens in twain and strike down my foes Heaven Clever", he is able to use more long and midrange attacks. This is because when Tengoku no Kuribā is awakened it takes on the form of a naginata with a lightning bolt on the blade. His long range moves consist of useing lighting that his weapon produces and his mid range is just normal tricks. Narakuma hates to talk about his past and would much rather look forward to the future. Narakuma has no intent in moving up the ranks any farther then he is now. [bloodrosepelt ]
Fourth Division: Medical/supply division, divided into 14 relief teams
Hiroki stands at about 5'1. He looks young, with messy black hair and bright oak brown eyes. He is thin and not muscular, and though he is stronger than he looks, he believes that he is weak, as his appearance makes others think that at first. His hair shines, as he has to make sure he is always clean, and falls to his chin. He wears the traditional shinigami clothing, though sometimes he will wear something different, especially when working on healing someone. Hiroki is extremely self-conscious and unsure of his own abilities. He majorly puts himself down, believing that he is not very powerful. He is the only person keeping himself from moving forward, and he does not realize it. Despite this, he is surprisingly upbeat, and is always trying to help others. Hiroki won't let others say that they give up or that they aren't strong, even though he does the same thing himself. He tries to be the first one there by the side of someone in need. His zanpakuto is a normal sword. He has only accomplished the shikai form, which can be summoned by the order, 'Bloom, Hana no Tsuru!' It's shikai form is a long whip, and where it touches a flower blooms. The flower can drain the energy of the person little by little, so Hiroki's shikai is best used in a long battle. He is good at kido, though he rarely uses it due to rarely fighting. Hiroki and Asa were good friends in the academy. She tutored him a bit when he was struggling, and so he returned the favor and helped her with kido. He wasn't surprised when she became a captain, though he was a little envious, until he became a lieutenant, to his surprise. [*ᴿᵃᶤᶰᶜᵃˡˡᵉʳ* ]
Fifth Division: No special duties
Sixth Division: No special duties, historically led by the Kuchiki clan
Byakuya has slate gray eyes and long black hair, which he keeps up in intricate white headpieces called kenseikan, wearing three on top of his head. He wears fingerless white tekkō which only cover the back of his hands. He wears a variation of the captain haori, featuring a high collar with light gold edges and small, light gold tassels attached to the corners. He is a tall man, standing at nearly six feet, and has a remarkably pale complexion. Byakuya usually acts in a very aristocratic manner, and always seems calm and indifferent bordering on arrogant when it comes to most things including battle having been captain for quite some time now. He is very perceptive and formal, and for the most part strongly believes in law and order. He tends to keep his feelings to himself, but over time is getting better at sharing them. He likes Japanese cherry blossoms, night-time walks, spicy food, and bananas, but does not like sweets. Byakuya excels in calligraphy. Along with his sword skills, Byakuya is highly skilled in shunpo and kido. His zanpakuto is Senbonzakura, the shikai breaks into thousands of small metal shards that look like sakura petals and he can control them at will. His bankai is Senbonzakura Kageyoshi. Byakuya's Bankai is a much larger version of Senbonzakura's Shikai. To activate it, Byakuya drops his sword straight down. The sword phases into the ground, as though it were a pool of water. Energy ripples expand out, turning the surrounding area dark, and within seconds, two rows of a thousand giant blades rise up from the ground. Those thousand swords scatter, and countless flying blades pierce the enemy. The bankai also has several forms that Byakuya controls mentally. Byakuya is the current head of the Kuchiki clan, one of the four noble clans in Soul Society. He loves his tea and cherry trees, and has a column in the Soul Society newspaper about etiquette, another thing he is big on. He also does calligraphy in his spare time, and if his lieutenant is out on business he will personally make sure the lieutenant's duties are taken care of. [Kuragehime ]
Mitsuo stands at five feet eight inches, and is surprisingly lean considering how much junk food he consumes. His hair is a bright rusty red. It is short and spiked up in the front leaving his face clear, and his eyes are a striking blue like the ocean. There is a scar running down the side of one cheek from a mishap with his own zanpakuto, but if you ask him it's from a fight with a hollow. His uniform is fairly normal, he just leaves it open over his chest, and has a fine silver chain around his neck. The uniform and haori are both sleeveless, and the haori has red lining on the interior with gold piping on the armholes. On his face are a pair of gold wide-rimmed glasses, though it's debatable whether he actually needs them or not. Mitsuo is loud, rambunctious, and laughs at just about anything. He's always messing those around him and is the type to laugh at his own terrible jokes. Mitsuo, as mentioned earlier, loves his junk food. He stocks up on it when he gets sent to the World of the Living. He loves his division and tries to make sure they're all happy all the time. He also has an obsession with cats, some might call it a bit unhealthy, and can't handle bugs. Some wonder how he managed to become a captain in the first place. The one time he does get serious is in battle and during training sessions. Despite his confident exterior, there are certain things he gets easily flustered about, causing his face to get as red as his hair. His zanpakuto Raijuu is something he is extremely proud of, and takes the appearance of a normal katana with a dark blue and grey hilt. The release command for the shikai is "Strike the Earth, Raijuu!", and upon release it takes the form of a naginata with a sharp jagged blade. He is able to control lightning, channeling it through the spear to strike his opponent. The bankai goes by the name Ikazuchi no Kami and is released by the command "Roar, Ikazuchi no Kami!" Mitsuo's haori and shirt disappear, and electric blue jagged lines appear on his black hakama. White pointed horns sprout from his head, and floating around his shoulders is a thin golden scarf. A large ring bearing eight small drums floats behind his back, and if struck they help direct lightning. His weapon remains virtually the same as the shikai, only now it does not have to touch the target to shoot the lightning. Mitsuo is much faster in this form. He can create a large storm cloud over him, and proceed to bring down bolts of lightning. As for his history, Mitsuo does not often talk about his family life. He grew up in one of the more upper class districts of Rukongai to a noble family of decent status. He has a twin brother Ikki and for the longest time the two were inseparable. However once they started getting older Mitsuo decided he didn't want that lifestyle, and after discovering his potential as a shinigami he left Rukongai for Seireitei. [Kuragehime ]
Eighth Division: No special duties
Ninth Division: Always on combat standby, Seireitei's security force, heads the Seireitei Newspaper (lieutenants hand in their reports here)
Asa is short, standing at 4'3, and looks young. Her eyes are electric blue, and she always seems to be expecting something. Her skin is pale, in contrast with her jet black hair, which has bright red highlights. Her hair is medium length, cut unevenly and stopping right before brushing her shoulders. She has three long scars down her back from when she was little and was attacked by a hollow while adventuring. Her captain's coat had to be adjusted for her small size, and she cut the sleeves off because they were still too long. She also decided to cut long strips below the squad number, much to the first captain's annoyance. Asa is adventurous, but doesn't care much about playing games or having normal fun. She enjoys seeing new things, but is serious about her work, and tries to get it done first. She is a hard-worker, and is strict with those under her. She is small, but hates to be called it, tending to give the scariest death looks at those who call her short. She likes when it is quiet and enjoys being alone. Her zanpakuto is named Kasai Sei, and is called by the command, 'Burn your mark into the skies, Kasai sei!' It looks like a normal sword, except for a short chain connected to the hilt. The shikai form is a short blade with no hilt, just some wrapping at one end, where the blade becomes thin and more rectangular. The chain extends off the blade, wrapping around Asa's left arm, all the way to the shoulder. The blade is pure white, and is burning hot. The shikai form can be used for long distance and short distance attacks, and can create streams of fire if used quick enough. The bankai form is called Howaito Kasai. In this form, Asa has a pair of white hot fire wings, and the chain around her arm extends across her back and down her right arm in the same fashion as it did with her left arm, with another blade. The blades take the shape of small white serpent-like dragons, which Asa can use just as she uses the chain in the shikai form. Asa is not very good at kido, and struggles to master it. She is semi-good with a few she had worked on, and has only mastered one, Hado #31. Asa was born in the soul society, living with a twin brother and their mother and grandmother. Asa went to the academy at a young age, after she was exploring and was attacked by the hollow that gave her the scars. She was saved by a captain, who then told her of the spiritual energy she had. She quickly passed through the academy, even with her struggle with kido, and after a while, she became a captain, and now tries to keep to her position. [*ᴿᵃᶤᶰᶜᵃˡˡᵉʳ* ]
Eleventh Division: Direct combat division specializing in melee-type zanpakuto, new captain is elected by defeating the previous in a duel to the death, taking on the titles of both Captain and Kenpachi
Madara has waist-length spiky black with shoulder-length bangs framing the sides of his face, covering most of his right eye. He has several scars throughout his body. Although still relatively young, more prominent creases had developed under each of his eyes. He is 500 years old. Cold to mostly everyone due to his past. Only his mentors and his lt. have seen his softer side hes battle hungry preferring to calling it 'Dancing' instead,his love for battle surpasses Captain Madara rarely gets serious preferring to toy with his opponent which has led to his defeat many a times. His Zanpakuto is Kubikiri when he releases its shikai using its release phrase it becomes a large Decapitation Knife its main attack creates a mist that allows MAdara to Project his voice through the mist to confuse the enemy before he attacks for His Bankai Kubikiri evolves into Susanoo with the phrase "Create a shower of blood....Bankai! its main attack is Vortex Slash a Gestuga tenshou like attack but uses pure wind. His Hollowfied form he gains a Mask that resembles a Fox Hollow. He was trained by Zaraki and Ikkaku. [~Alucard~]
Haruna is a small young lady standing about 4'5", not the shortest but still rather unassuming. Her body is slender and petite. She has delicate facial features and a gentle, doll-like face with fair ivory skin. Her face is very expressive though is often found in a look of bored. Haruna's hair is a soft, almost white, blonde color and falls in a loose braid to the middle of her back. Her bangs frame her face on either side and in truth she's a rather pretty little girl. Haruna eyes are a deep green color, stark and dark against her fair skin tone and light hair. They frame by thick black lashes and blaze with fire when in the heat of battle. She wears her simple Shinigami outfit though ties a sash of emerald green about her waist to keep the coat closer to her body. Haruna is quiet, to the point that many outside of her division have never heard her speak. Outside of a fight, Haruna is quiet and prefers the company of only a few people. She reads often, sits often, and eats very often (much more than one would assume from her stature). Haruna isn't one for jokes, because she doesn't quite understand them all the time, so don't expect a laugh from her. She is kind to those beneath her and understands there is a time for battle and a time for sympathy. The only times you'll get a full winded lecture from Haruna are if you cross her on a bad day, or do something she deems idiotic. Though her appearance doesn't seem like one of an Eleventh Division member, she is as hard-headed and battle hungry as anyone in her division. Haruna is smart and analytical though, she is not the first to jump into battle at all times because she will analyze her situation, then act. Her perception and observation skills are what helped her to excel greatly in the Shinigami Academy and get her into the Eleventh Division. Her actions are always purposeful and direct she never wastes time of silly tricks or guises. In it's normal form Haruna's zanpakuto is a simple katana tucked against her waist with a soft green hilt and black scabbard. The blade is a bit lighter than most metals, almost an ivory-bone color. It's name is Shiro kurokodairu meaning "white crocodile". When activated to shikai form, saying "Okiku aite" (open wide), it takes on the appearance one large blade with two ends and a holding place in the center. The sword itself is about as large as Haruna now, and nearly as wide. The blade looks like the jaws of a crocodile stitched together at the mandible crest to create a sword. The teeth face opposite ways, and a sharp blade edge lines the lower portion of the jawbones. Haruna is able to sling the teeth from her blade as projectiles, us it as a defensive shield, and use it as a normal blade with it's sharpened end. If the battle calls for it, she is also able to break apart Shiro kurokodairu into two jaw blades as well. Haruna remembers very little of her past, it comes in flashes and phases now and then, but to be honest, she doesn't quite care what her life was like before all of this. Haruna eats very very often, she is almost never seen without a piece of food in her hand. Her favorites include macha cakes, pocky, tea cakes, rice cakes, and anything sweet. [𝓼𝓲𝓵𝓿 ]
Twelfth Division: Science division, home of Shinigami Research and Development Institute, members primarily tasked with data and sample collection
A more mature woman, Ameko has pale pink hair which flows past her waist. Her hair is usually down, and is pin straight, but when she is working she will pull her hair back. Ameko's skin is white, and she has an hourglass figure. Her right eye is a deep brown, almost black, while her left eye is red. Her left eye is a replacement for one she had lost. Ameko is serious about her job. She doesn't have the crazy mad scientist appearance that was evident in the past captains of the squad. It is thought that her attitude was the main reason she was chosen as captain. However, while she doesn't appear to be a crazy mad scientist, she does have a terrifying aspect to her. The thing is, Ameko is prepared to do whatever she wishes if she believes that it would truly help. This belief means she always has a reason for what she is doing, and can easily convince others that it is the right thing to do. She can seem extremely inhumane with some of the things she decides to do, and even if she sacrifices someone, she has a good reason for it. Being very intelligent, she doesn't let her squad get away with anything she considers wrong. Her zanpakuto is named Chi no Ame, and is called by the command, 'Pour out all, Chi no Ame!' In it's shikai form, her zanpakuto is a thin sword shining with many cool colors, from pinks and purples to blues and greens. The hilt is twisted like a horn. It looks like a beautiful weapon, but it steams out a painful toxin. The bankai form is summoned by the command, 'Tear to pieces, Akai Hariken!' The bankai takes the form of a double sided scythe. The shaft itself is thin, and the scythe on either side of the weapon seems slightly deformed. The zanpakuto glows a strange blue-green. The bankai steams out different toxin, none of them deadly, only painful or paralyzing. The blade itself is coated with toxins, and can be deadly if injected into the body. No one really knows where she came from. Ameko isn't secretive, it's just that many of her subordinates are afraid to ask. [*ᴿᵃᶤᶰᶜᵃˡˡᵉʳ* ]
Hotaru is on the shorter side, being five feet even. His hair is long-ish and shaggy (he is always brushing it out of his eyes), with a few strands sticking up on the top of his head. It is mainly white, but the roots and fringes/tips of his hair are black. His eyes are wide and a vibrant golden-yellow, and due to his habit of staying up all hours of the night he has permanent dark circles under them. Hotaru has a scar under his right eye from a mishap during an experiment, and he always wears a large bright green scarf no matter what the temperature is. Hotaru's facial expression hardly ever changes, he always has a very curious look on his face and doesn't blink often, and that is precisely because he is constantly observing everything. He has an immense interest in living things and technology but the way his mind works is a bit on the childish side. When he is not doing his squad duties, he will be out collecting specimens for experiments or clumsily performing experiments in the squad 12 barracks. He has a particular fondness for insects. His zanpakuto in its sealed form is a normal looking katana with a guard that looks like a pair of pointed insect wings. The hilt is dark green and the release command is "Shine, Fireflies!" (Kagayaku, Hotarubi!). When the shikai is released, the entire sword breaks up into small yellow/green orbs of light that look like fireflies. These surround Hotaru, and he can control where they move or are shot. His shikai has two different mode, a combat mode and defense mode. In the combat mode, the orbs do damage upon impact and in defensive mode the orbs heal minor wounds similar to healing kido. Partly due to his clumsiness and partly due to the fact that he is in the science division, he does not use his zanpakuto for fighting that often and will often just sling it over his shoulder out of habit. [Kuragehime ]
Thirteenth Division: The town of Karakura is under this division's jurisdiction
He is about 5'11 & 3/4 (or nearly 6' if you want to round it). He was 19 when he died. His hair is a natural blonde with dark auburn red highlights and he keeps it about to his shoulder in length so that it is long enough to tie it back with the hair tie his crush used to use. He wears the normal soul reaper clothing when he absolutely has to, otherwise, he'll wear clothing similar to what he use to wear in the human world. In regards to his job, he has adopted a strict, extremely devoted, and follow the rules precisely type of persona. He does not take kindly to individuals who cause problems or create more work for him, particularly if it forces him to apologize for their actions. However, he is a very decorous, dignified man. Though when he is around just his squad or is in the human world he acts as his old self which is carefree, daring, sometimes reckless, but he is passionate about protecting anyone that need's it. He also takes joy in frightening others, as he intentionally acts in a disconcerting manner to provoke a reaction. His temper though is something you don't want to awaken because it sends him overboard and he pretty much becomes someone else. Furthermore, when his temper is in a full blown swing he is a ruthless, bloodthirsty individual that has no qualms with inflicting injuries on others or even killing someone, so he will if he wants to. This makes him a particularly cold-hearted man. When his zanpakuto is just in it's base state it is about two and a half feet from tip to base and is pure white with no handle or guard. When he says 'Ichira rise in the morning's glory' it grows in length to nearly six feet long and gets a red ting in the blade. It caused heat to rise quickly and the blade burns to touch. when he releases his Bankai he says 'Ichira bring the solar flare' and it has two different states one being an attack state where it looks the same as the base form but has a hot fire around the blade and the other being a defensive state where it is a large fire dragon that he controls with the sword (though this form is still unstable). When he was 15 he was trying to protect a girl he liked from a hollow attack but failed. Though moment's before she died she transferred her soul reaper powers to him and he became a substitute soul reaper. Later that year he learned that his family was related to the Quincy's but the last few generations had not shown any spiritual abilities til he was born with the gift of seeing ghost. After that, he worked hard to hide his soul reaper powers from his family but spent a lot of time at 'school' practicing with his sword and learning all he could from the other soul reapers that came to the town. By the time he was 18 he had at least learn all of the Kido though he wasn't good at most. At 19 he was at home trying to protect his parents when a large group of hollows attacked and it seemed calculated as it happened when no other soul reapers were in town and they surrounded the house. He was forced to go into his soul reaper form in front of his parents at which point the dad got made and brutally attacked his body while he was fighting the hollows. It was when he first used the defensive form of his Bankai which is why the house caught fire. He later found out that his parent lived when he was in the hospital that his sister was born in. So he knows her birth name but doesn't know what happened to her after that. A few years after his sister was born he got appointed to the lieutenant position and about three years back he became captain. [gamergirl09 ]
Masaki is a 6'7" male with pale skin, red eyes, and spiky white hair. Masaki also has a scar on the left side of his face that goes from his collarbone to the middle of his cheek. Other than his normal Shinigami cloak, Masaki wears a red belt around his waist as well as a red headband that is wrapped around his head. When Masaki walks around he usually rests his right arm on his sword . Masaki is a warm hearted guy that is kind and generous. He is also extremely hot-headed and loves to speak his mind. Masaki will also always choose his friends over almost anything. He is also very dependable and fierce when it comes down to it. He only acknowledges strong friends and foes alike. He is 22. Masaki's Zanpakuto is name Ryu Hoshi (Dragon Star). Ryu Hoshi's release command is "Fly over the frozen lands and scorch your enemies, Ryu Hoshi". In its Shikai appearance, Ryu Hoshi covers both arms in white metal with five long razor sharp claws extending from the fingers, a metal mask partially covering the right side of the face and a long tail that ends with a blade. One of Ryu Hoshi's special moves can also be considered it's downfall since to be able to use it, Masaki has to be able to fight for an extended period of time. As time goes on another tail will appear until there is 4 in total. When all four are present, Masaki can fire a Reiatsu blast by joining all four of the tips of the blades together.Ryu Hoshi's manifestation is actually of 2 dragons one of them being a red western-style dragon (the one from medieval times) and the other being a blue eastern dragon Masaki is quite known for his speed and stamina. He has worked on it for many years to help match his Zanpakuto. When he unlocks his Bankai, it will be called Ōgon no Ryu Hoshi (Golden Dragon Star). In this form, Masaki's entire body is enveloped in golden metal. The helmet is designed to look like a western-style dragon. He still has the claws but each hand has a different element. His left hand can deal fire-based attacks while his right deals ice-based attacks. This form also has golden wings that are made out of metal and are as sharp as his claws. The weakness of this Bankai is that Masaki's body is actually practically fused with the armor, with the armor acting almost like an armored layer of skin. The mouth of the dragon is also able to snarl, roar, and move its jaw as if its talking as it responds to Masaki's will. [Lioncl ]
Shigeo is 6'0, with light tan skin. His hair is a light, shimmering blue, pin strait and falls past his shoulders. His eyes are a deep brown. He is muscular, with strong features. He wears his shihakusho with the sleeves rolled up, so his arms are visible. He looks like he is about in his twenties, though his true age is unknown. Shigeo is usually described as a flirt. He will flirt with almost any woman he comes across without the hint of shame. He can be lazy and absentminded, and will easily become distracted. Due to this, he hasn't reached his full potential, instead falling behind those who, if he had tried, he could have been above. He is arrogant, completely full of himself, and acts as such around women, wanting to show off. He also refuses to fight any female, up until his life depends upon it. While he acts differently around women, he is self-obsessed and selfish. He doesn't actually care about others, and only acts that way for appearance. His zanpakuto is named Daten-shi, and it's shikai form is summoned by the command of 'Spread your wings, Daten-shi!' The zanpakuto then takes the form of a double bladed battle ax with a long handle. The weapon's color is aquamarine, and the blade shimmers like water. The special ability of the shikai form is to make water erupt from the ground wherever the blade cuts into it. Shigeo doesn't have much of a history. He was always lazy, procrastinating on everything he did in the academy and receiving low scores. When he passed, none of the divisions seemed to care if he joined, except for squad 2, 11, and 12, none of which wanted him as he didn't fit their criteria. He joined the 13th division, and caused shock when he proved that he was better than expected, though still having a pretty average skill base. He is the shinigami that was assigned Karakura after the last soul reaper was injured. [*ᴿᵃᶤᶰᶜᵃˡˡᵉʳ* ]
Shizuka stands at an average height of about 5'3" with a very slender sort of build and subtle curves to her, she probably weighs just about 100 so she's fairly light as well. Her skin is rather pale and with a soft freckling across her nose and cheeks. Her features are a little round and doll-like, just a bit thinner. Shizuka's hair is a soft brown color cut in a short lob cut that falls just past her chin in waves, parted down the middle, and framing her face nicely. Her eyes are a deep chocolate brown color and framed by thick black lashes. Shizuka's normal outfit is black jean shorts that are frayed at the hem with a white sweatshirt with the sleeves rolled just below her elbows, and a pair of gray and white sneakers. Her sweatshirt is a bit short for her torso and reveals a bit of her midriff. Shizuka's Visored resembles that of a rabbit's face. Instead of soft rounded edges though, they are sharp and more squared off. The cheeks end in points, as do the ear tips and chin. The ears stand above her head and a bit and her eyes are covered by black sockets over the top. Across the mask as markings that somewhat resemble the skeletal structure under a rabbit's skin, giving her mask a more gothic and macabre feel. She looks about twenty years old. Shizuka is a laid back and calm young lady. She is rather detached and secretive at times, often analyzing before acting, much like her former Squad-mate Haruna Ayane. However, if you mention anything about her height and stature, Shizuka can get a bit hot-tempered and feisty. She's rather sensible in her matters and thinks through things thoroughly before acting, often times leaving in the middle of a fight (between fellow Shinigami usually) when she deems certainty of the outcome. Shizuka doesn't often get emotional, unless you present her with a small animal, specifically those of a the fluffy and fuzzy variety. It's not that Shizuka doesn't show emotion, she certainly does, but nothing extreme and usually rather simple gestures. Shizuka's zanpakuto is a simple katana, proportionate to her body, with checkered red and gray hilt and a triangular guard. Her Shikai's name is Suchīruusagi (Steel Rabbit) and retains the katana form until the release "Run swiftly, Suchīruusagi." then Suchī (as Shizuka shortens it to often) takes the form of naginata that is about twice her height with a deep red staff and a large curving, white blade.

Aoi is a short girl of 19 years, standing at just over five feet tall. She has light skin and dark hazel eyes. Her brown hair is worn in a short bob, but it is pretty thick so she has trouble controlling it from time to time. She lives in Karakura, and recently graduated from high school there. She normally wears different combinations of light sweaters and jeans, and always had a bow of dark blue ribbon in her hair. Her combat outfit is similar to her old school uniform. A white pleated skirt that stops just above her knees with a thin light blue trim along the bottom. She wears a white coat that is waist-length in the front and extends down to her ankles in the back. The coat has silver buttons and black trim on the sleeves. On her feet are smooth knee-high white boots with a blue stripe down the outside and black heels. She also wears white gloves when fighting. Aoi is a clean freak, if her clothes get the slightest bit of dirt on them she has to fix it as soon as possible. Despite only being a half-blooded Quincy, the Quincy pride is strong in her. If she sees a shinigami she give them the usual cold-shoulder, though she is secretly curious about them and Soul Society. Aoi likes to think that she comes off as the 'serious student type', but most of the time she wears her heart on her sleeve. She wields the usual Quincy bow, hers being more sleek than average and it's about as tall as she is. She is quite proud of her good aim, and she is learning to wield Seele Schneider. She has not yet achieved Volstandig. [Kuragehime ]
Nikita is a slender young lady of 5'5" with a frame like an athlete, subtle curves showing when you pay attention. She is 20 years old and appears just as youthful. Nikita's skin is fair, though dotted with faint freckles across her cheeks. Her golden blond hair flows in gentle waves just past her shoulder blades, though is normally kept in a high ponytail out of the way. Around her face hang pieces of hair that were too short to fit back into the ponytail. Nikita's eyes are a soft brown color, deep and full of emotion. Normally you will catch Nikita in her normal, civilian clothing. Simple skinny jeans, a comfortable shoe, and a variety of sweaters and layered items. She wears her Quincy Cross in the form of the original cross rather than the usual Pentacle, around her neck. When in battle Nikita dawns white, skinny fitted pants with light blue lines running down their front, tall white boots that reach over her knees and end in a point at her thighs with a light blue line as well. She wears a white long sleeved shirt, overtop a long vest with a tall collar that brushes her chin and a tail that reaches her heels. The vest is lined in the typical Quincy blue and her Sanrei glove sits on her left hand. Nikita is a friendly girl, pleasantly talkative and always intrigued by the world of Hollows and Shinigami. Though she was raised as a pure-blooded Quincy, she still does not quite understand the feud between the Shinigami and Quincies. Nevertheless, when around fellow Quincy she gives the cold front to Shinigami, but in private she loves to ask questions and learn more and more about the Soul Society, Shinigami and their Zanpakuto. Nikita is inherently curious about everything and as a result has a vast amount of knowledge about most things supernatural. She is bubbly and friendly and shows kindness to all. In the heat of battle, she has been known to second-guess herself, resulting in injuries to herself and teammates. Nikita is a strong fighter, but still has to get over the hump of killing a real soul. Nikita has not entirely mastered the art of archery, still needing to work on her aim and power. Her bow is typical to a Quincy, though with curled edges and a wider base for the arrow to rest. However, Nikita has much more mastered the use of Hirenkyaku and is a blur when she needs to be on the battlefield, her speed impressing even the most trained of Quincies. Her abilities with Seele Schneider are also quite impressive, often using Seele Schneider as close combat swords rather than arrows. She much prefers close combat fighting rather than the errors she can cause when firing her arrows, which is rather strange for a Quincy. Nikita has not even thought about attempting Volstandig because of her insecurity. Nikita was actually raised in Munich, Germany by her mother and father. However, her mother contracted a sickness and died when she was young, and her father passed from grief soon after. Nikita was sent to Karakura Town to live near to her relatives. Nikita finished schooling there and trained as a Quincy to help keep her mind from her family tragedy. It was in Karakura Town that she also came face to face with her first Shinigami-Hollow battle and she was amazed. From then Nikita took to researching and learning everything she could about each of the races. Being she is from Germany originally, Nikita can speak fluent German as well as Spanish, Dutch, Russian, and a few others. [𝓼𝓲𝓵𝓿 ]
He has Dark Blue Hair in a style similar to Grimmjows kept his Gold eyes but has Dragon like Arm Bones as his Hollow part which forms part of his mask. His personality is nearly like if Grimmjow and Ulqiuorra had a son. His Ressurecion turns him into a Draco Hollow With the Head of a Dragon Hollow body of a man with Bone 'scales' his wings and tail can be used as a weapon he releases this form with the Phase "Burn upon the Heavenly throne....KageRyu". He had a crush on Harribel and loves the land of the living.
Keko is a tall and lean woman. She has been around a while, but still appears to be in her late teens. Her hair falls loosely to the end of her spine and is light silver. Her skin is almost the same shade as her mask, which falls horizontally across her face just over her nose. It appears to be the upper half of a bird beak, though it doesn't stick out past her nose. Her eyes are white, with a thick black ring around the irises. A faded number six can be found on the right side of her lower stomach. Her top consists of tightly wrapped strips of white cloth like those used for wrapping bandages, leaving a bare midriff. She sometimes wears a short-sleeved jacket over this, but that is very rare. She wears white hakama with black tights underneath on her lower half that fall all the way down to cover her feet and her black and white sandals. The hole from when she became a hollow lies just above her hakama, and she wears three simple black bracelets on each wrist. What was left of her moral compass disintegrated long ago, and she feels no remorse when she goes after pluses, human souls, or even shinigami if she's feeling especially brave. Keko always has a bit of a crazed look on her face, a visual cue that she has a few screws loose. The sword on her waist has a black sheath and a white guard, with a black and white striped hilt. Her resureccion command is "Fly high, white dove". The remnant of mask on her face comes out to form a sharp bird beak. Keko’s arms become covered in diamond-shaped pieces to form ‘wings’ made of the same material as her mask. They work as a shield, and they can cut things. Also, if she whips them through the air she can send the diamonds at opponents as deadly projectiles. It takes time, but they regrow afterwards. She is able to rapid-fire them. She can fly and is extremely fast, mainly relying on speed during combat. She was nearly Vasto Lorde level before becoming an arrancar, and though she has lost her two fraccion, she travels with fellow arrancar Ikki. She has currently claimed a wing of Las Noches as her own, and has been defending it well for some time now. Keko and her fracciones were part of the last batch of arrancar that Aizen created. Keko loves to visit the Forest of Menos, and thinks the Menos Grande are extremely entertaining. She dreams of bringing a giant group of them to the human world sometime and wreaking havoc. [Kuragehime ]
Ikki is tall, about five feet eight inches, and built with a lean musculature. His hair is dark red, short, and has a natural 'just got out of bed' look to it. His eyes are a dark burnt orange and always give off a very apathetic expression. He wears a white sleeveless shirt with black trim. There is a jacket that goes along with it but it's always hanging loosely just off his shoulders. He also wears the normal white hakama, black socks and silver sandals that most arrancar wear, as well as a wide black choker on his neck. He has a more serious personality, and doesn't take to joking around too well. He carries himself well, and has a tendency to speak formally to others. His apathetic expressions hide a burning passion for destruction as well as a desire to prove himself. While usually sporting a calm and calculating mind, if his strength is mocked or his trust in someone broken he will fly into a blind rage. His mask fragment covers the right side of his face and resembles a scorpion's mandible. Like the two arrancar above, Ikki was also a result of one of Aizen's last experiments, only slightly different. Not much is known about the specifics, but he used to be a normal soul living in Rukongai before the experiment. Aizen came to him with a proposal in a moment of weakness, and the rest is history. If asked about this past, Ikki will not give any straight answers, only speaking about revenge. [Kuragehime ]
She is about 5'8" and looks like she never eats mainly because she'll forget to eat. She is 17. She'll dye her hair every few months to a different colour, sometimes a natural color sometimes not. She has one hazel eye and one cloudy blue eye(She is blind in that eye). As for her style in clothing, she tends to stick with darker clothing that is baggy. She'll also seem to always be wearing a long sleeve shirt with jeans tucked into combat style boots. She stays to herself most of the time though with her curiosity she doesn't mind asking questions. She will stand trying to look brave when needed even though she is screaming in fear in her mind. But after she warms up to someone and she sees them as a friend she'll be loyal to a fault and seems to never stop talking, though she can have bad judgment on who to see as a friend. She can also be too trusting of a friend which leaves her to be easily manipulated. She has no spiritual powers as of yet, but no one knows what the future may hold. She was born in America and raised by her adoptive parents. She has just recently moved to the city to find out about her birth parents and possibly start college though she won't talk about details of her childhood. [gamergirl09 ]
Eiichi stands at 5'6, with light peach skin and river blue eyes. His hair is a light sandy brown, long enough to fall into his eyes. He has black, thick-framed glasses. He is usually wearing his school uniform, but is never seen without a thick blue plaid scarf that matches his eyes and blue headphones. When he changes after school, he wears a black jacket with a blue shirt underneath, black pants, and blue sneakers. Eiichi tends not to be the first to speak, and is more passive. He tries his best to make everyone happy, and is very intelligent. He keeps things organized, and rarely forgets anything. He is stronger than he seems, and doesn't scare easily. He doesn't fight, but has spiritual energy that allows him to see and speak to spirits. When he was in his mother's womb, she was attacked by a hollow. This caused some of the hollow's essence to become apart of her, spreading to Eiichi and his twin brother. However, Eiji was the one to have the power of Fullbring, while Eiichi was only born with the ability to see spirits. Eiichi was close to his mother and brother, but didn't like his father. However, after his mother's death Eiichi had decided he needed to step up, and is trying to help his father more. He is 16 years old. [*ᴿᵃᶤᶰᶜᵃˡˡᵉʳ* ]
Eiji stands at 5'6, with light peach skin and violetish red eyes. His hair is a light ginger, long enough to fall into his eyes. He is usually wearing his school uniform, but is never seen without a thick black infinity scarf and red headphones. When he changes after school, he wears a red plaid jacket that matches his eyes with a black shirt underneath, ripped black jeans, and red sneakers. Eiji is hotheaded and aggressive. While he is smart, he doesn't care about anyone else, and will sometimes speak without thinking, and come across as rude or disrespectful. He doesn't care about organization or schoolwork, and will find himself in detention easily. However, he is an artist, though he keeps it a secret. He has a Fullbring, an iPen and iPad. Eiji can sketch something into life or erase something, using the soul of the pen and the screen he draws on. He can not draw or erase live things like humans and animals though. When he was in his mother's womb, she was attacked by a hollow. This caused some of the hollow's essence to become apart of her, spreading to Eiji and his twin brother. However, Eiji was the only one to have the power of Fullbring, while Eiichi was born with only the ability to see spirits. The pen and pad Eiji has was a gift from his mother for his birthday, as she knew he liked to draw. Eiji lives with his father and brother after her death. [*ᴿᵃᶤᶰᶜᵃˡˡᵉʳ* ]

Plus - A plus is a benign spirit of a Human that has died. A chain, known as the Chain of Fate, protrudes from the chest. Can be bound to a location via the chain, and will turn into a hollow if the chain is corroded before a soul burial can be performed.

Reiatsu - spiritual pressure; physical force/pressure that a person’s Reiryoku creates when released; most Shinigami, Arrancar, Quincy and Bounts can manipulate the release of their Reiatsu

Alrighty~ I'll start out with my Quincy then, since she's the only human I have xD]] Does Ringo live in the same city?]]
Aoi was on her way home from school, headphones stuck in her ears as she tried to drown out the sounds of the street around her. She had dark circles under eyes from her late night the day before. A hollow had come after her home in the middle of the night, and by the time it had been destroyed it was nearly time for school. Needless to say, she was a bit on edge and not in the mood for a whole lot.

Ringo was a little ways ahead paying her respects to her little brother again, and once more his spirit appeared in front of her. "Hey big sister when do you think I will be able to see papa," he asked, and Ringo sighed as she placed her hand on his head. "Soon hopefully," she said as she tried to stop from crying in front og his spirit Ringo blamed herself for what happened to her little brother even though her family members, and friends kept telling her that it wasn't her fault.
Post by Kuragehime on Sept 15, 2016 23:05:07 GMT -5
Aoi looked up from the sidewalk and her humming cut off when she saw a young spirit standing up ahead of her, and someone her age who looked like she was talking to it. She closed her eyes and concentrated, then breathed a sigh of relief when she felt no presence of hollows anywhere nearby. She stood still, debating whether she wanted to get involved or not.

Just then a loud sound came from nearby, and Ringo covered her ears because of how loud it was, and after the noise she saw her brother wearing a strange mask. "Ayamo," Ringo asked getting a bit scared before Ayamo started to change.
I haven't seen Bleach in a long time so my knowledge of how a howwlow is made is a bit rusty.}
Post by Kuragehime on Sept 15, 2016 23:30:23 GMT -5
It's alright~ I'm a bit of a Bleach nerd so if you have any questions just ask xD]] It takes about a week for a spirit to turn into a hollow, the chain on their chest has to first be severed, and then be completely disintegrated]]
Aoi ripped out her headphones after hearing the loud shriek, knowing all too well what was going on. The girl had been standing in the way, so she had been unable to see how much of the chain of fate was left on the boy - apparently it was nearly gone. "Get back!" she yelled to the girl, pulling out a necklace with a thin silver star pendant on it. She held it straight out and a bow of light blue energy formed, arrow pointed straight at the young spirit. "If you don't want to get eaten, get back!" she repeated.

"Ayamo," Ringo said as she took a step back away from her brother before she saw Ai with a strange weapen, "No you can't he's my little brother you can't do it," she said before Ayamo let out another roar. "Ayamo it's me Ringo remember," she said getting even more scared.
Post by Kuragehime on Sept 15, 2016 23:43:50 GMT -5
"Once they have that mask they're gone," Aoi said with a low voice. She wore a dead serious look on her face, her aim not wavering. "There's no use trying to reason with them, they won't listen. I'll say it again - if you want to live, if you want the rest of the people in this city to live, then step away from him."
Post by misstrissshade353 on Sept 15, 2016 23:57:58 GMT -5
"I'm not losing him again there is no way that history is going to repeat itself," she said as she remembered how Ayano died, and just as Ayamo was about to hit her he stopped his claws a few inches away from Ringo's body. the mask was halfway over his face, and he started to cry. "Please big sister run please I don't want to hurt you," he begged as he continued to cry, "I'm not leaving you Ayamo what part of that do you not understand," Ringo said. "Please I can't fight it much longer," he begged as tears continued to fall.

"The only way to save him is to get a shinigami here, and there aren't any around," Aoi said bitterly, pulling back the drawstring of her bow. "They haven't been doing the greatest job of patrolling through here recently."
Post by Kuragehime on Sept 16, 2016 0:26:08 GMT -5
Is it calling Rukia or something?]]
Aoi's attention slipped away from the hollow for a moment and she looked at the girl. "What are you doing? What's that sound?" she demanded. It didn't sound like the screech of a hollow, that was for sure.
Post by misstrissshade353 on Sept 16, 2016 0:40:12 GMT -5
The sound was stil resonating, and it continued to all the way to the soul society where a member of the third rank shinsangumi noticed on the charts a dtrong wave of power. "Ruikia You got to see this," the member said calling in the leader.
