Default Re: The Fell War Saga <A Bleach RP> [SUs] =REVIVED=

OOC: Well, it's tempting to go with Nanao because if Shunsui gets made, it'll make for some epic laughter. They give me hysterical giggles in a fuzzy way, those two. "Nanao-chaaaa-*fanstomp*"XD

But okay, Retsu and Rangiku t'is. I'll put Retsu up from the old one now, and work on Rangiku. Hopefully, she should be up in the next day or two...depends on Recruit School. >>

(Wonder if anyone will make 'Shiro-chan, then, if we're going with what's happened in the current timeline (DoH, look it up on Bleach Wiki if you're not up to scratch. You'll at least know then who would be alive or dead and stuff. Unless me voicing that idea with certain characters freaked 'em all out. xD)

EDIT: Hey DoH, if someone makes Hitsugaya, do you think it'd be worth letting them know I'm playing Rangiku so we can somehow discuss things like History so many years on? I mean, Rangiku and Hitsugaya are pretty close, so it might be an idea.





Name: Unohana Retsu
Alias: Retsu. Unohana-taichou/Captain Unohana.
Age: Unknown - is reputed to be one of the oldest Captains, however, and is believed to have been a Captain for a little over three hundred years, if not more.
Gender: Female
Race: Shinigami/Soul Reaper
Aspect: Captain of the Fourth Division

Personality: Unohana has a gentle and warm personality that augments her appearance. Unohana is a soft-spoken, polite, and caring woman who uses honorifics when addressing everyone, including her subordinates and the enemy. She rarely shows any signs of panic or distress, and has a great sense of duty, shown in the times that she has been forced to follow this sense of duty over personal feelings, such as when she ordered Yamato Hantarou's imprisonment.

With her grace and kind manners, she lets others know quietly that while she may be soft and gentle-humoured, she is not to be taken lightly. Despite her gentle nature, several members of the Eleventh Division and even her fellow Captains fear her, and only a fool would dare to oppose her too harshly.

Unohana likes strong flavored food, preferring it to bland tasting dishes. In her free time, she climbs mountains throughout Rukongai, during these excursions, she collects medicinal herbs.

If there is anything else particularly odd about Unohana Retsu, it is perhaps the fact that she appears to have a soft spot for the notorious 11th Division Captain, Zaraki Kenpachi. Perhaps it is more likely that her patient gentleness is the cause of this tolerance towards him, considering how often he ends up in her care, however, this is open to speculation due to Retsu's kind but reserved nature.


History: Although not much is revealed about her past, it is said that she has been a captain for at least 300 years by this point; along with fellow captains Genryūsai Shigekuni Yamamoto, Jūshirō Ukitake and Shunsui Kyōraku. It is stated that the four of them have been Captains of the Gotei 13 for at least 200 years by that point. This makes her one of the oldest captains among the Gotei 13, despite her rather youthful appearance. Ukitake also refers to her as "Senpai" denoting her seniority to both him and Shunsui.

Approximately 210 years ago Unohana was present for a promotion ceremony, that took place at the 1st Division Headquarters, along with the rest of the assembled captains. She witnessed the arrival of the newly appointed Captain of the 12th Division, Kisuke Urahara. Her lieutenant at this time was Seinosuke Yamada.

9 years later, Unohana was present at a emergency meeting called by Captain-Commander Yamamoto where he decided to create a investigation team to locate the missing 9th Division squad members. When he gave out orders, Yamamoto ordered Unohana to prepare the relief stations for casualties, but Unohana interrupted him and asked if it wouldn't be better for her to tend to the wounded there. Yamamoto plainly told her that he couldn't send healers out without knowing what the situation was like.

With the past seven years since the series ending, Unohana has kept up to tabs for her own sake and the sake of those around her on the unrest brewing with the Fell Stones. She is much saddened by the divisions they may very well cause, but accepts that it is the way of any sentient species, from Shinigami to humans to Hollows; she herself has found an interest in the Divine Stone, rumoured to heal like no other can. Still, she has yet to find cause to actively make a stand, and spends her time between running her Division and trekking the mountains around Seretei, gathering herbs - something she has become more prone to doing these days when she is not immediately needed, for some inexplicable reason.


Description: Standing at a modest five foot two, Unohana Retsu is blessed with the air of one that, while gentle, is not to be trifled with. Apparently of a strong and healthy figure, Unohana has the appearance of a very youthful woman with blue eyes and black hair. She wears the standard Shinigami captain uniform apart from using an obi instead of the normal sash. Her hair is long and is always worn as a large braid in front.

Unlike most Shinigami, who carry their Zanpakutō in their sash, Unohana has a large string attached to the sheath of her Zanpakutō and carries it over her shoulder, or has her lieutenant carry it for her, whenever they are together on the battlefield.

Weapons: The following is taken with thanks from Bleach Wikia. Except for the Bankai, credit goes to half me and half a fantastic author who writes KenpachiXUnohana xD

Master Healer: Unohana is by far the most knowledgeable on health related matters in all of Soul Society. She is known to be highly proficient in conventional healing techniques as well as herbal healing. Her knowledge of anatomy is high enough that upon examination of Aizen's "dead body", she concluded it was not Aizen or even real. She also seems to be able to heal more than just Shinigami, evident when she heals Yasutora Sado, a human, and Gantenbainne Mosqueda, an Arrancar.

Kidō Master: As one of the oldest and most experienced captains, Unohana has advance knowledge of kidō and the flow of spiritual energy. Her knowledge and mastery of healing kidō are unrivaled within Soul Society.

Immense Spiritual Power: As one of the oldest Captains in the Gotei 13, Unohana has tremendous spiritual power.

Master Swordsmanship Specialist: Although she has never been seen in battle, it is known that her personal speciality is sword fighting, including her particular mastery in the kendō style of fighting.

Flash Steps Expert: Unohana is proficient enough in this skill to be of the average level of speed possessed by a captain.

Keen Intellect: Along with her general skill of healing, she is able to detect the smallest details. This helps her in her mastery of healing. She can detect anomalies and problems lesser healers would not. She can tell by a simple look what type of medical attention if any is needed. She also a powerful analyst with great attention to detail, able to quickly determine how to counteract any ailments in a person. Her powers of perception were also able to deduce that Aizen's elaborate illusion of a corpse doll wasn't real, but even more so that Aizen was perpetuating a much larger scheme.


Zanpakutō


Minazuki (肉雫唼, "Purify the Flesh"): In sealed form, Minazuki is slightly longer than an ordinary katana, and resembles a nodachi The tsuba has an oval shape and the handle is red. Instead of tying it to her obi, Unohana carries her Zanpakutō over her shoulder by a rope strap or lets Isane carry it for her.

Shikai: Its release command is unknown. When released in Shikai form, Minazuki will start to morph, turning into a green like gas substance before taking a solid shape of a giant, green, one eyed Manta Ray like creature with the capability to fly. Minazuki can act as transportation and will change back into the green gas substance before returning to its sword form when its duty has been fulfilled.

Shikai Special Ability: It is large enough to transport many people on its back (at least a dozen, based on its size when compared to those riding it). It seems to act on verbal orders and when landing it has the ability to somehow create a pair of bird like legs. Minazuki's main aspect is its ability to heal. When the wounded are placed within Minazuki's mouth, they are swallowed and stored inside it's stomach. Minazuki's stomach acids are strong healing medicines and ointments which gradually soak over the wounded, curing their injuries. Currently it has shown to be able to carry at least five people within it's stomach. When Unohana gives the word, Minazuki will regurgitate the people back out of its mouth.

Bankai: Unohana's Bankai is rarely shown, though when it is shown, it proves exactly why she is so feared.

Minazuki's command is that of "Gorge". When released, it dissolves and forms an eerie green mist reminiscent of Unohana's healing kido, but with distinctly more malicious repurcussions. The mist will then settle around and apparently inside of Unohana, before most unsettling, coalescing around her hair and forehead to form what appears to be the eye of Minazuki in it's mantaray form.

The eye will then search for it's target, and once it has locked gazes with them, or Unohana's own gaze has, the target will be left feeling...rather light-headed and happy, really, yet with the distinct feeling of being drained completely of all energy. It's rather like a drug, really, a tranquilizer to prevent the target from escaping as their life energy is sucked from them.

While it is more effective if Unohana is in contact with the intended target, it is not limited to this. She simply needs to lock gazes with the target - an easy enough feat, as she does not release her Bankai often, and when she does, they are generally too taken by terror to look away. It is also likely this Bankai that enables her to take and store energy to heal with to the degree she does - an eerie and contrary Bankai to her nature, but a fitting one.

Additional Info: "While it is good to be energetic, please remain quiet inside the hospital. As long as you are still inside this building, your lives are in our hands. Please do not forget that."

Name: Cain
Age: 227(I'm gonna assume that's young, for a Soul Reaper)
Gender: Male
Race: Soul Reaper
Personality (2 paragraphs please): Cain has two major aspects of his personality; Relaxed and Hostile. Cain is rarely without his personal demons, but in some moments of peace, he is fond of napping and eating comfort food, like a housecat. He uses this time to remember his departed brother; Abel. While he rarely lowers his guard, he is easily startled when he begins reliving his younger days, so he tries avoid relaxing outside of the safe haven of the Seireitei.

When agitated, usually when he's harrassed by peers or the enemy, Cain can become, sometimes unnecessarily, angry. He feels guilty for an incident that occured over 100 years ago, and has a bad habit of taking it out on others. When dealing with friends or allies, he will usually resort to fisticuffs, or using a random object as a weapon. He refuses to draw his Zanpakuto against a friend. But when faced with an annoying enemy, Cain will charge recklessly, sometimes activating his Bankai in situations that barely require a Shikai to handle. Still, when he's in a good mood, Cain is an impressive swordsman, and an asset on the battlefield.

History (2 paragraphs again, please): Here, I will tell the story of the awakening of Cain's Zanpakuto, and the tragedy that occured alongside it.
Cain and his brother, Abel, were both born into a prestigous family of Soul Reapers, so they began their training at the tender age of 20 and 16, respectively. Eventually, they both reached the Soul Reaper academy, Abel arriving the year after Cain. This sparked resentment in Cain. While he was a talented swordsman, he was inept at even the simplest of Kido. Abel, on the other-hand, was a skilled swordsman, and had an incredible gift in the art of Kido.

One day, Cain's inferiority complex overwhelmed him, he challenged his brother to a battle in the Rukon District. The battle was intense, both brothers used their Newborn Zanpakuto with skill. Still, Abel's reluctance to use his Kido, and Cain's aggression led the elder brother to knock away his brother's Zanpakuto. The Spiritual Pressure did not go unnoticed, a Hollow somehow entered the Rukon District, seemingly appearing from some place near the 5th Division Headquarters. Without his Zanpakuto, Abel was quickly executed, shattering his brother's spirit, and leaving him in a state of severe guilt.

Abel, however, refused to give up. In his final moments, the boy used a powerful Binding Kido, merging his soul with that of his brother's. This fusion of souls allowed Cain to wield both his, and his brother's Zanpakuto, activating both of their Shikai and dispatching the Hollow. From that day forward, Cain has been able to communicate with his brother, and whenever both Zanpakuto are released, Abel's body manifests itself, reuniting the two brothers towards a common goal, as they should have been all of those years ago. During Ichigo's Invasion of the Seireitei, and the attack on Hueco Mundo, Cain was one of the lesser-members of Squad 11, he has only recently earned the tenth seat, giving him more information and activity in the Soul Society.

Description (both human form and any other forms your character possesses; pictures are fine but include a text description as well): LOL, Gary Oak - Cain's face is full of youth, as he is still a young spirit. His spiky brown hair stands up in several points of varying angles. His bright blue eyes constantly appear moist with tears as he remembers his brother. In spirit form, he wears the standard Soul Reaper uniform, with two slings wrapped around him to sheathe both Zanpakuto. In human form, his Soul Reaper uniform is replaced with a blue long-sleeved t-shirt and brown pants, with a silver pendant around his neck.
Weapons (includes powers; nothing crazy): Warui Ototo(literally, Inferior/Sinful Brother)

Sealed State: Warui Ototo, like most Sealed Zanpakuto, falls into one of three basic designs. His takes the shape of a basic katana, standard-size, moderately-curved, with a blade length around 2-feet, with a single edge, and a jade-plate guarded hilt, long enough for two hands, but light enough to be held in one. The butt of the hilt has the kanji 躰, Karada, meaning body engraved on the bottom.

Shikai State: Warui Ototo, answers to the command "Betray". In its Shikai form, Warui Ototo looks similar to its Sealed state, but the blade is another foot longer, with the blade attached to a circular hilt, allowing Warui Ototo to be spun like a sharp baton, easily dicing weaker enemies. In the Shikai state, Warui Ototo enhances Cain's Strength, Speed, and Endurance, making him 3x as fast and powerful as normal. The blade itself, however, only has only one ability, making it less reliable in long-ranged battles.

Ability; Uzumaki Yaiba(Spiral Blade) - Warui Ototo's only special technique is the Uzumaki Yaiba. Much like how a Jedi uses the force to send their Lightsaber swirling through the air, Cain can use his Spiritual Pressure to control the direction of his Zanpakuto. The spinning blade, strengthened by Cain's Spiritual Pressure, can carve through a mountain, making it very reliable at distances that Cain can't reach fast enough. This move, however, leaves Cain vulnerable to attack while he is seperated from his Zanpakuto, so he prefers to have it arc around him in a spiral pattern.

Bankai State: Jigoku Ototo(literally, Hellish Brother), is Warui Ototo's final state. It is released when Cain recites the following phrase: "Forgive me brother, for I have dishonored you. Lend me your strength, Jigoku Ototo!" Jigoku Ototo is a five-foot long, trapezoid-shaped blade, similar-looking to the Buster Sword. Cain's body is surrounded with a powerful black metal armor, with red accents, and a helmet with two red horns, concealing Cain's face. In the bankai form, Jigoku Ototo gains a fresh set of abilities.

Ability; Yami Juugan(Darkness Bullet) - Similar in appearance to Cero Blast, this black blast is fired from the tip of Jigoku Ototo, with enough force to pierce Diamond. The blast is roughled the size of a cannonball, and evaporates after traveling a set distance of 10 yards. Making it a useful tool for close-medium range combat.

Ability; Surasshu Akuma(Slash of Satan) - Upon calling out the attack's name, Jigoku Ototo becomes engulfed in the Hellfire, allowing it melt even the most heat-resistant substances with ease. The effects of this attack, however, are limited to the range of a single swing of the blade.

Ability; Jigoku Inori(Hell Prayer) - The main purpose of the armor is to protect Cain from this attack. By thrusting his blade into the ground, a pentagram with a diameter of 50 feet surrounds him, and on the voice command "Shoukyaku", Incinerate, a giant tower of molten-hot flames rises out of the ground, engulfing anything within the pentagram and reducing it to smoldering ash. Using this ability knocks Cain unconcious, and leaves him with severe burns due to the heat of the armor. If Jigoku Inori is used alongside Abel's Tenshi No Yona Noroi(Angelic Curse), it summons Lucifer, the fallen Angel, who attempts to devour the souls of anybody within range. If either brother loses control during this attack, it is capable of deleting the entire universe. Because of this, they only hold the summoning for five seconds, after which, they immediately disperse the attack.


Name: Abel
Age: 112(At time of death)
Gender: Male
Race: Soul Reaper
Personality (2 paragraphs please): While Cain is more aggressive and depressed, Abel is more cheery and friendly. After the incident with his brother, he is incredibly forgiving. Because Cain is constantly interacting with Abel in his mind, the younger brother has a permanently cheerful personality. This isn't a fabrication, he is happy to watch his brother go stronger with his help.

In battle, Abel is confident of his abilities, and for good reason too. When his brother chooses to summon him, Abel will proudly use his Kido in order to help defeat the enemy. He tends to get arrogant in battle, much to his brother's dismay. Because after all, it is Cain's Spiritual Pressure that is hurt in battle.

History (2 paragraphs again, please): Read Cain's History

Description (both human form and any other forms your character possesses; pictures are fine but include a text description as well): Let's keep the Pokemon Theme going... - Abel has spiky black hair that points out at 180 degree angles. His brown eyes glisten as they did the day he was attacked by the Hollow. As he only appears when he and his brother's Zanpakuto are released, he is always wearing the Soul Reaper uniform.

Weapons (includes powers; nothing crazy): Kido - Using the Spiritual Pressure given off by his Zanpakuto, and the energy he borrows from his brother, Abel can use his mastery of Kido from inside his brother, and in his human form. Through his family's connections, he recieved extensive Kido tutoring, increasing his already incredible Kido skill. He specializes in Bakudo, the spell that saved him and his brother being under this category, but his Hado is also above average, though both spells are weakened when he is in his brother's form. He knows most of the Kido arts, but has mastered a few to the point of heightened potential.

Bakudo Mastered
-Bakudo #1 - Sai(Restrain) - Locks a target's arms in place behind their back
-Bakudo #21 - Sekienton(Red Smoke Escape) - Creates a blast upon activation and is used like a ninja's smoke bomb.
-Bakudo #39 - Enkosen(Arc Shield) - Summons a shield of condensed reiatsu to block opponents' attacks.
-Bakudo #62 - Hyapporankan(Hundred Steps Fence) - A rod formed of energy is thrown towards the target before it disintegrates into numerous short rods which are used to pin the target to the surroundings and render them immobile.
-Bakudo # 81 - Danku(Splitting Void) - Creates an energy barrier in the form of a rectangular wall. According to Byakuya, it is capable of stopping destructive spells up to #89.

Hakudo Mastered
-Hakudo #1 - Sho(Thrust) - Pushes the target away from the caster.
-Hakudo #31 - Shakkaho(Shot of Red fire) - Fires a ball of red energy at a target.
-Hakudo #33 - Sokatsui(Blue Fire, Crash Down) - Fires a burst of blue spiritual energy at a target in a similar manner to #31, but over a wider area and with more power.
-Hakudo #58 - Tenran(Orchid Sky) - A widening tornado-like blast is fired towards the target.

Of course, he knows more than these, but the Kido listed are the spells he has recieved thorough training in. He has recently been practicing Hakudo 73, Twin Lotus Blue Fire Crash Down, but even when in his own form, this spell has proven difficult for him to master, as it is essentially a multiplied version of Hakudo 33.

Soul Merge/Split - During the last few seconds of his life, Abel used a long-since forbidden Kido, Bakudo #0 - Soul Transfer, to channel his Spiritual Pressure into Cain's body. This allows him and his Zanpakuto to continue living, and when his Zanpakuto's Shikai is released, Abel is able to use the Spiritual Pressure that resides in his Zanpakuto to seperate from Cain, allowing him to fight in the physical form, but he must still borrow a fraction of his brother's Spiritual Pressure. The result of this is an effective battling duo, but the longer the two are seperated, and the more energy Abel uses, the more likely they are to collapse under the stress. Abel himself is fairly vulnerable to this, seeing as Spiritual Pressure is used to mantain his body, so during long battles, Abel will constantly jump in and out of his brother's body.

Shinseina Ototo(literally, Holy Brother), in its sealed state, it takes the form of the Wakizashi, a short blade between 1-2 feet. It is similar to but shorter than a katana The wakizashi was usually worn together with the katana. When worn together the pair of swords were called daishō, which translates literally as "large and small". The katana was often called the long sword and the wakizashi the companion sword, symbolizing the bond between the two brothers. Shinseina Ototo, like Jigoku Ototo, has a kanji engraved on the butt of the hilt, this one being 魂, Tamashi, meaning Soul.

Shikai State - Shinseina Ototo is a Kido-oriented Zanpakuto. When released, it takes the form of a Bladed Cane. When Cain posseses the Shikai State, he uses its short blade in combination with his own blade, giving him a two-pronged attack. When Abel posses Shinseina Ototo, he channels his Spiritual Pressure through the blade, amplifying the effects of his Kido. Being a Kido Zanpakuto, Shinseina Ototo has several powerful spells built-in.

Ability; Aka Tamashi(Red Soul) - Aka Tamashi is a simple projectile spell, where a red fireball roughly six inches in diameter is fired from the blade of Shinseina Ototo.

Ability; Kiiroi Tamashi(Yellow Soul) - Kiiroi Tamashi is another projectile spell, this time firing a yellow bolt of electricity. This spell can be sustained, paralyzing the enemy, and giving Cain time to launch an attack.

Ability; Aoiro Tamashi(Blue Soul) - The final spell, Aoiro Tamashi, is a barrier shell, forming a large circle of life from the point of the blade, making it look similar to an umbrella.

Bankai State: Tenshi No Yona Ototo(Angelic Brother) - Abel's Bankai removes the sword from the equation, instead covering his body in a shining suit of armor, making him look similar to the Persona Melchizedrek.

Ability; Aka Tamashi(Red Soul) - Aka Tamashi is a simple projectile spell, where 5 red fireballs roughly six inches in diameter are fired. In Bankai, Abel can control the size and shape of the fireballs.

Ability; Kiiroi Tamashi(Yellow Soul) - Kiiroi Tamashi is another projectile spell, this time firing a yellow bolt of electricity. This spell can be sustained, paralyzing the enemy, and giving Cain time to launch an attack. During Bankai, the electricity can paralyze multiple targets.

Ability; Aoiro Tamashi(Blue Soul) - The final spell, Aoiro Tamashi, is a barrier shell, during Bankai, it creates a large wall of ice, if Abel pours enough spiritual pressure into it, it can become as thick as the great wall of China.

Ability; Tenshi No Yona Noroi(Angelic Curse) - The main purpose of the armor is to protect Abel from this attack. By holding his hands in prayer, a cross roughly 30 feet tall emerges from the ground, creating a large dome that traps anything in the dome in an icy prison, and when the barrier is released, white hot shards of ice rain down upon the enemy. Using this ability forces Abel to return to his brother's body. If Tenshi No Yona Noroi is used alongside Cain's Jigoku Inori(Hell Prayer), it summons Lucifer, the fallen Angel, who attempts to devour the souls of anybody within range. If either brother loses control during this attack, it is capable of deleting the entire universe. Because of this, they only hold the summoning for five seconds, after which, they immediately disperse the attack.

Would it be all right to reserve Gin and have him replace Tatsuki? If not, reserve me Trenia from last time to replace her.



Name: Uryu Ishida

Age: 22

Gender: Male

Race: Quincy (The last)

Aspect: None

Personality: Uryū is generally quiet and solitary, but tries harder to act cool when other people are around. For example, during the Soul Society arc he wears a mantle that serves no purpose other than to make him look cooler, despite the fact that it hinders his movement. He even keeps a spare to that effect. In addition, he also has a tendency to say things with characteristic drama.
Uryū operates on a moral ethic known as the "Pride of the Quincy" and has a strong sense of justice. He has also shown to be very chivalrous, stating that he enacts justice on men who abuse or treat women badly. He demonstrates this at multiple points throughout the series, such as when he tried to defend Rukia Kuchiki from Renji Abarai when he and Byakuya Kuchiki came to the real world to take her, or when he defends Orihime Inoue at multiple points throughout the Soul Society arc. Uryū also has a tendency to not use lethal force in battle, especially if he can win without doing so. Instead, he will simply incapacitate his opponent. Uryu is left handed, and has an intense dislike for Shinagami, though has become an ally of Rukia and Ichigo. He possesses the unique ability of being able to remain calm in nearly any situation, even under extreme physical pain. Prolonged taunting can frustrate his usual calmness, but this does little more than provoke Uryu into using more energy in that particular shot.

History: Uryu Ishida is the last (active) remnant of the Quincy, Humans with high enough spiritual density to see Hollows. The Quincy dedicated themselves to eliminating the Hollows, seeing as how the Shinagami were often late in doing so, resulting in Hollows taking the souls of many. While some had wanted to work with the Shinagami, their requests were ignored, up to the point of the death of the last Quincy teacher, Uryu’s sensei. Uryu witnessed first-hand how the Shinagami cannot always reach a Hollow in time, as it was a powerful Hollow that killed his sensei.

Before then, much of the Quincy had been killed off by the Shinagami. This, coupled with their failure to save his sensei, angered Uryu to the point of him hating most Shinagami. He trained himself in the use of his preferred spirit weapon, a bow, and carries the burden of being the world’s last (active) Quincy. Some time later, he met substitute Soul Reaper Ichigo Kurosaki, and issued a challenge to him. Using Hollow bait, a contest to see who could destroy more Hollows. Some time afterward, Uryu and Ichigo established something of a friendly rivalry, though he serves much more an ally's role.

Shortly after this, Rukia Kuchiki was abducted by Byakuya Kuchiki for purpose of execution in the Soul Society. Though he did not explicitly say so, Uryu disappeared for a few days to master the power of an ancient Quincy artifact, the Sanrei glove, to enhance his abilities in order to better assist in the rescue, reappearing and revealing where he'd been to the others of the group going along to rescue Kuchiki. During this time, he also temporarily lost his Quincy powers after removing the glove to fight the Bankai of Soul Reaper captain Mayuri. His father later assisted in restoring his powers, but this is an event Uryu does not speak of.

He later assisted Ichigo and co. when Orihime was taken to Hueco Mundo, throwing his assistance and newly-regained powers into helping defeat several of the Arrancar holding Orihime hostage. Though several times throughout he was badly wounded, he was healed up just as many times, and continued to aid in the fighting, even assisting in Ichigo's fight with the Espada Ulquiorra to a point, until he was incapacitated. While Ichigo continued the fight, Uryu remained with Orihime for the assurance she wouldn't end up being kidnapped yet again before they even left the world of Hollows. He was later present when Ichigo lost his Shinigami powers after his battle with Aizen. Some time after that, Uryu disappeared from Karakura town for a period of roughly five years, presumably to hone his abilities somewhere else, though he gives no comment as to what he was doing.

Uryu returned to Karakura two years ago, using the high spiritual energy of the town’s newer inhabitants and his own personal training to supercharge his powers and assist holding off the horde of Hollows attracted by the recent surge of spiritual pressure. He has become an ally of Ichigo Kurosaki, Rukia Kuchiki and their allies, though he works alone rather than with the rest of the group most often. For the past few years, Uryu has become the owner of a reputable tailor's shop in town, putting his skills with a needle to good use.

Description: http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__...ow_%281%29.jpg A slim young man garbed in clothing to represent the clan he remains the last of. He is left-handed, and wears a pair of rectangular spectacles.

Weapons (includes powers; nothing crazy): Kojaku (pictured): Uryu’s weapon of choice; a spirit bow represented by a blazing blue aura in his right hand. The more spiritual energy Uryu can draw, the stronger it becomes, even to the point of changing shape. Using his own spirit energy, Uryu can destroy normal Hollows in a single well-aimed strike.

Seele Schneider Expert: Uryu is also surprisingly adept at the use of Zanpukto, to the point of being able to hold his own against even high-level Shinagami. The Seele Schneider itself is an arrow with a tail long enough to be used as a hilt, containing in the base a well of spirit energy that, when activated, sends particles flying across the blade nearly three million times per second, making it strong enough to be used as a sword in battle against a Soul Reaper's Zanpukto. The weapon itself transforms the spirit energy of energy-based attacks into spiritons to give the Quincy wielder more energy to work with. It can also raise a Quincy's spiritual pressure. Skill improved over the last seven years.

Combat expert: Uryu is well-trained in use of his body and spirit energy in battle. He is capable of absorbing spirit energy from souls around him to fuel his attacks, but also possesses an astoundingly high spirit energy on his own, though not nearly as much as Ichigo.

Ransōtengai: A high level technique known to be quite rare to ever be encountered. Uryū is well versed in the use of this ability, which was not possessed by a good majority of the former living Quincy. Used to remotely control the body when under effects of paralysis or other debilitating injury.

Hirenkyaku Expert: Uryū is highly skilled in the use of the technique. Even keeping up with Captain Mayuri Kurotsuchi, who complimented his skill, stating it was a skill that was hard to master, especially at such a young age. Uryū has recently shown a new variation of the technique, which creates a platform of reishi under the user's feet. Originally used while traveling to Hueco Mundo, he has found use for it outside of the Garganta, and can carry others with him on the platform. Generally used to move at blinding speeds. Power improved over the last seven years.

Licht Regen: Uryu launches a volley of spirit arrows from his current bow. Capable of firing 1,200 arrows at once. The ability's power drain makes it impractical for use on most enemies, and is generally reserved as a last resort attack against immensely powerful opponents. Power improved over the last seven years.

Additional Info: Uryu can hold his own against odds normal Humans would surely perish in and walk away with little more than a one-line observation of his enemy.

Looks over at Reality... Well, looks like if I bring back Shiro, she'll need a new aspect. Anyway, I'll try to expand some, but it'll all be pretty iffy.

And Neo, if you need any help understanding things, I suggest consulting the Bleach Wiki. I'm too lazy to link right now, but google it and it should come right up.

XD I just had to consult it to settle an arguement with a friend of mine--Baraggan is #2, not Halibel!!!

And DoH, I edited 'Hime's history some, hopefully that's good. If not, lemme know and I'll pick my brain some more.

Hey, guys, I'd like to put out that, indicated in the latest chapter of Bleach out of Japan, Toshiro, Ukitake, Shunsui, Captain Yamamoto, Gin, and all those happy mo-fo's are still alive and around (Captain Yamamoto is missing his left arm, though XD).

Anyway, no SU for Ichi yet. Buuuuuuut...

Jess might remember this guy x3

-Name: Shenichi Taniguchi

-Age: 67 (he was 15 at the time of death)

-Gender: Male

-Race: Soul Reaper

-Rank: 3rd Seat in Squad 7

-Description: Visual aid 1 Visual aid 2 (with Shikai)

Shenichi Taniguchi is about 5', 8" tall, has a thin body with somewhat of a runner's build, and is still rather young; all in all, not one of the most intimidating Soul Reapers around. His hair is the only thing really unique about him, as it is a white-blonde shade, naturally spiked back, and would be shoulder-length if it weren't spiked like that. He wears the normal Soul Reaper shihakushō uniform, however, underneath his kosoda, instead of the normal shitagi, he wears a dōi  (a vest). He also has a number of silver necklaces adorning his neck, including a rather long one he had retained from his life in the human world (it stuck with his soul because it meant a great deal to him, being his late mother's favorite necklace), a set of small chain earrings attached to each ear, and a couple of cloth gloves and gauntlets on each hand and wrist, respectively.

-Personality: Shenichi isn't a very temperamental man, usually slow to rouse, but quick to act; because he doesn't let anger make him rash, and he doesn't allow his judgment to be clouded by other raw emotions. This is not to say Shenichi does not have emotions, but that he feels them on less of a degree than some others, and is able to think past them when necessary. Otherwise, he is rather calm, and somewhat laid-back, happy to take time off when he is not training or "on the clock." He takes pride in the fact that he became a Soul Reaper, having been rather fascinated with them since he met one the day of his konsō. However, one thing he prides even above that would be the necklace of his mother, which he believes holds all his memories of his parents before that fateful robbery attempt.

Shenichi's strengths as a Soul Reaper lie in his Hohō and Zanjutsu, both trained as much as he possibly could while in the Academy, and he also has a good foothold of Kidō, able to use mid- to a few high-level spells without incantation. It is one of the reasons he graduated in the top 25 of his class after his six years in the Shinigami Academy. He and his Zanpakutō, Shinjitsu no Me (Eye of Truth), seem to have an incredibly close bond for a Soul Reaper so soon out of the Soul Reaper Academy. It is actually enough that Shinjitsu no Me has actually refused to be used to strike its master when it was wielded by a stronger opponent during training in the Soul Reaper Academy. This is quite uncommon, but not unheard of in the Soul Society. He also seems to have a bit of a fascination with the Captain of Squad 7, Captain Sajin Komamura, finding the anthropomorphic canine interesting and, in a word, "awesome."

-History: Shenichi Tanuguchi led a most undesirable life in the living world. However, it was not of his choosing to be stuck in this endless loop. His parents had been killed during an attempt to rob the bank, that had ultimately failed, but at the cost of fifteen civilian lives, including those of Shenichi's parents. Because he was too young to get a job or strike out on his own, he was to be processed and sent to either an orphanage or a foster family, but Shenichi didn't want that at all, from all the nasty rumors he had heard about both. Still grieving for his parents, Shenichi had slipped out of the clutches of the law system threatening to ensnare and strangle him, striking out on his own. He thought that there would be some way to live a life of his own without having to be torn from everything he'd known and be made to believe in what his new lifestyle would bring.

Alas, Shenichi's hopes had been fruitless, as he soon found himself huddling for warmth under newspapers and abandoned trash cans in alleyways. As he was a firm Christian, he prayed every day and night for God to help him in any small way, anything that would remove the pain of the day, and cease the rumblings of his belly, if only temporarily. He scrounged for the smallest of scraps, he begged passerby without much luck, and yet still, he prayed, prayed to be delivered from this Hell. Some days, his faith in God faltered, but he never truly let go. It didn't take long for his prayers to be heard, and Shenichi was delivered from his pain...

In a horrible accident on a rainy day, a huge semi truck skidded through the street, getting its trailer stuck in an alleyway after it overturned onto its side...trapping and killing the homeless, fifteen-year-old boy beneath it.

As suddenly as that had woken him up, it was over...it was all over. The next thing Shenichi knew, he was a Whole, and a strange being in black and white clothes that looked like they came from the days of Feudal Japan was talking to him, ensuring him that he was dead, but was about to go to someplace that would be better for him now. This being, when he asked, introduced himself as being a Shinigami, also known as a Soul Reaper. It didn't take Shenichi very long to accept the fact that he was now dead, and he easily allowed this Soul Reaper to perform the konsō on him. A momentary blinding flash of white light covered his vision...and he found himself in the Western Rukon District, in the Soul Society.

Things were incredibly easier for the unfortunate boy now that he was in the Soul Society. People in this particular District of West Rukon, which he discovered was the 3rd District, were far friendlier than in the living world, and he even found himself living with a few souls in a nice, distinct household. One thing that Shenichi noted that was rather odd...was the fact that, out of the five souls living within the house, only he ever seemed to get hungry. He figured it was because he had just died and would still hold some habits and mental needs until the years went by and he grew more used to being a soul. Nine years passed like this, and yet Shenichi's hunger never changed, in fact, at some points he thought it even grew. And he seemed to also be stronger than his roommates, having jumped and climbed higher, ran faster and farther, and always seemed to come out on top when they proposed a fun session of fighting practice, to keep in shape. He was baffled, and yet, in his ninth year in the West Rukon District, the answer came to him, when a Soul Reaper approached him with an offer to join the Soul Reaper Academy. It seems that, even in the living world, he had been spiritually aware, but in his rather miserable state, he hadn't paid any attention to Wholes he may have seen at the time. It was only a slight spiritual awareness, however, nothing too far out of the ordinary for humans in his day, but ever since coming to the Soul Society, his spiritual powers seemed to adapt and grow to the new, much more comfortable atmosphere of the spiritual world. Having been fascinated with Soul Reapers ever since his death, Shenichi eagerly and happily accepted the offer, and made his way (escorted) to the Academy to take the Entrance Exam.

Never having realized he had the potential to have Spiritual Pressure before, Shenichi found the exam incredibly difficult, and since he had no prior training on how to even try to use it, he failed his first try, but was encouraged to try again the next year by the examiners, who found his potential to be quite above average. So, after receiving tips from one or two Soul Reapers, Shenichi began his training back at his home in District 3. It wasn't all that difficult a concept to grasp once he heard it, and his training proved to be fruitful eventually. A year passed, and he aced the entrance exam the second time around. After ten years being dead, Shenichi found himself on his way to becoming a Soul Reaper as well, a being that would help other souls that had died.

Shenichi mostly kept to himself in his studies, except when approached by others to practice things such as Zanjutsu or Kidō. He wasn't really a loner, happy to accept company, but he was more of an introvert, not always seeking the companionship of others. Still, working together did make things easier to find where he would excel in the Soul Reaper training. Of the many areas, his finest areas seemed to be Hohō and Zanjutsu, with a good hold of Kidō as well (once he moved past the point of simple Kidō exploding in his face, which, after the pain was gone, even he found comical). He didn't have an exceptionally notable rate of growth, but he wasn't left completely in the dust by those geniuses who did.

While at the Academy, upon learning that all Zanpakutō have a name and can eventually be talked to, he began focusing on that while in his free time. Of course, for years, he didn't have much success. However, he was amongst the first in his class to learn the name of his Zanpakutō, something he was quite proud of. Though, of course, he'd have to learn more and grow more powerful before he has access to his Shikai powers, but he was well on his way, he was happy to note.

After the average six years, Shenichi and many of his fellow students attended the graduation ceremony, and were finally made into Shinigami as well. Excited, Shenichi applied for the 13 Court Guard Squads as soon as he found time to research on the different Squads, as well as the known members and Captains of each Squad. One Captain in particular interested him more than the others, one he'd only caught a glance of while at the Academy, Captain Sajin Komamura. Unlike others who feared his appearance, Shenichi was rather intrigued and excited about it, exclaiming it to be "awesome" at one point to his classmates. So, he decided to apply for Squad 7 of the 13 Court Guard Squads.

It didn't take long, much to his relief and astonishment all at once. His application to join Squad 7 was accepted, and he was soon stationed in the Squad 7 barracks. Obviously, he wasn't a seated position so soon, but he was willing to do the work and time needed to be able to grow in rank in the Division, and prove himself to his new Captain.

At first, he began his work as a part of Squad 7 like any other Soul Reaper just starting out, being given low-level missions to find and defeat weak Hollows. Despite only fighting these weaker monsters, Shenichi’s level of power and ability continued to grow at a presumably steady rate, something that Komamura himself took notice of after a few years, and quite soon, Shenichi was offered a position as a Seated Officer, beginning for him at the 12th Seat, and without any hesitation, the young and promising Soul Reaper took the opportunity to move higher up in his Squad.

Being one of the few Seated Officers without a Shikai in his Squad, he worked extra hard on training himself and communing with his Zanpakutō spirit what little he could. His spirit was rather mysterious, and didn’t choose to give his master the access to Shikai with a single, simple test; rather enigmatic, Shinjitsu no Me gave him several tests over time, each growing in difficulty, until finally, he deemed Shenichi ready and capable of wielding the incredibly dangerous power that was his Shikai: that of time. Knowledge of the future could be helpful to some, but extensive use could damage one’s psyche, and Shenichi’s tests had been made to test his mental fortitude and intelligence. So when he finally got access to his Shikai, the young Soul Reaper knew that Shinjitsu no Me already trusted him a great deal.

The years pass, the missions get more difficult and complex the more rank Shenichi gains, and soon, almost before he really notices it, he was sitting at the third-seat position of his Squad, underneath Lieutenant Tetsuzaemon and Captain Komamura. That mere fact alone made the boy feel proud, but he is also rather shy about this fact, not attributing this mostly to his abilities, trying to figure out another cause or reason for this to explain it.

When the growing disasters concerning the Fell Stones arose, and Soul Reapers and other Wholes were joining factions to look for these destructive devices, Shenichi knew that his loyalties lied with the Soul Society, with Head Captain Yamamoto, and of course Captain Komamura. The protection of the Soul Society, as well as the living world, was a top priority, and even with the inclusion of beings far superior and stronger than even Head Captain Yamamoto involved, he is confident that the battle for the balance of the world will end up in the favor of those who fight on the side of the world itself.

After all, to him, time itself is no great importance. Only life is important.

Zanpakuto

Name: Shinjitsu no Me (Eye of Truth)

Appearance: His Zanpakutō's sealed state takes the form of a normal katana, with a 36-inch blade. The Tsuba is a perfect circle, with the flat part depicting the branches of a tree with leaves fully grown along them. The handle is wrapped tightly in a silver cloth, and a silver tassel hangs off of the end of the handle.

Shikai

Release Command: Shenichi holds his blade horizontally before him, the blade side towards the ground, with one hand holding the hilt of the blade, and the other placed on the flat of the blade opposite him, next to the tsuba. He then yells, “Transcend time! Shinjitsu no Me!” As he yells this, he slides his hand along the blade, which changes from behind his hand.

-Form: Shenichi’s Shikai takes the form of a 2-and-a-half-foot long, straight, black Ronin blade, with seven holes bored through the thick part, in the middle; these holes alternated between small, circular holes, and longer, oblong holes, with the smaller holes having one more in number than the larger. A tassel hands from the end of the handle, the handle itself being a mere tang wrapped in black cloth. There is no tsuba (guard).

Power: The ability to peer into the future, though the distance into the future perceived relies fully upon the amount of concentration used upon activating the ability. The way he uses the power is through the holes bored through the thick part of the blade, which glow with an iridescent, transparent aura; when his eyes make contact with the holes, even for an instant, and he concentrates even a tiny bit on the power, he can see the future. In battle, the ability can only peer into the immediate future to see what the opponent will do and when, and how to avoid it. Outside battle, with meditation, the ability can be sued to peer much farther into the future, even months or years.

Bankai

Not yet earned.

Zanpakutō Spirit: Shinjitsu no Me takes the form of an aged, ragged, hooded gray robe. The cloth has streaks of mixed shades of gray vertically along its entire surface, inside and out. Inside the hood, only the back of the hood can be seen, as would any of the rest of the robe, which looks like it floats empty wherever it "stands." His voice also contributes to his aged appearance, sounding very light, wispy, and echoing.

His personality is crisp, and his mind is sharp. He has a very keen intellect, and he is able to move past his emotions, which allows him to think at his clearest and quickest. Observing an opponent in battle is one strategy he prefers to employ, since he is able to watch how his opponent's moves and strikes, and once the pattern is found, or a common trait is discovered, then taking down the opponent will be that much easier.

Kidō Specialization

Hadō
#4 - Byakurai (白雷, Pale Lightning)
#32 - Ōkasen (黄火閃, Yellow Fire Flash)
#63 - Raikōhō (雷吼炮, Thunder Roar Cannon)

Bakudō
#39 - Enkosen (円閘扇, Arc Shield)
#75 - Gochūtekkan (五柱鉄貫, Quintet of 1 kan Iron Pillars)
#81 - Danku (斷空, Splitting Void)

-Additional Info: While it is not generally known how high Shenichi's level of Kidō expertise is, he has been able to use Hadō #88 - Hiryugekizokushintenraiho on one training occasion, though it left him completely drained. Since then he has honed and refined his knowledge and power of Kidō lower than that, to make sure he wouldn't lose his expertise on them before trying Hiryugekizokushintenraiho again.

Shen, Seli, and Winter, your stuff is good. metal, you can have Gin if you want him over Tatsuki. Also could you expand Uryu's History some? Other than that you're good to.

Unless Reality finishes their SU within a few more days, Winter, you can have the Healing Aspect again.

DG, you can use the same char if you like lol.

Inferno, it's a little ridiculous for your character to turn into such a large shark. Something a bit less drastic would be better, thanks. I don't have a problem with those other things, though perhaps your character should turn into a sea snake instead of a regular serpent. Makes more sense.

Also sorry this took so long, the net at my house has been out the past few days and I haven't had a chance to go to the library @__@. I'm actually at work now waiting for my shift to start. You can't believe how surprised I was when the filter let me come here! The site was blocked before...*Goes to check BMG.* XD

Well, hopefully I did alright here.

Name: Diego Dakkan
Age: 102, appears to look 29
Gender: Male
Race: Soul Reaper

Personality: Casual, confident, and assuring, Diego doesn’t let a whole lot of things bother him. Even though he strives to do the best he can, he feels things will turn out alright, and he tries hard to keep a reasonable sense of optimism surrounding him. Because of that quality, a lot of his squad mates like working with him, and find him to be enthusiastic, inspiring, and insightful. He also believes in giving people second chances, as long as those people show the desire to improve and make up for their previous mistakes.

Diego also knows how to keep a good sense of humor, even in the face of certain danger. As such, Diego rarely feels intimidated by anything, as he’s taken on Hollows that have been especially cruel and heartless, and has used their overconfidence against them. He isn’t too quick to judge his adversaries though, and often, he draws the fights out a bit to see what they’re capable of to calculate their next move and their potentials. As a result, Diego isn’t quick to dive at his opponents and go into a flurry of hacking and slashing. Instead, Diego relies more on Kidō spells to increase his unpredictable tactics in the faces of his enemies, though he usually reserves the Zanpakutō to deal close combat strikes when his enemies get close and he needs to stand his ground. Then, once he’s figured out his enemy’s tactics, he’ll deal the finishing blow with the Zanpakutō.

Meanwhile, whenever he can, he takes the Konsō responsibly pretty close to heart, as he’s very often sympathetic with lost souls that need guidance and help. With a light-hearted and casual approach, he helps guide them to the Soul Society, assuring there is hope on the horizon.

With regards to the Fell Bracelet he’s been assigned to obtain, he honestly feels it’s probably better if the Fell Stones remain out of everyone’s hands, but he’s willing to gather them and lock them up in a place of protection within the Soul Society, and leave it as a weapon ultimate last resort.

History: In Diego’s human life, he was born in the year 1908 in New York City. He lived alone with his mother after his father had died in World War I, but Diego never truly had the chance to know him. As a child, Diego had a fondness for the supernatural, and he often didn’t like to try to separate the fantasy from reality, always asking “well, how do you know they don’t really exist?” when confronted about the mystical creatures and worlds imagined.

Diego graduated from high school with excellent grades, but the Great Depression destroyed any hope of ever going to college. Instead, he got whatever work he could get, and in the end, he had landed a job as a bartender in a local pub called “Little Nicky’s.” The pay wasn’t good, but he appreciated the little he could obtain, knowing there were plenty of people in the streets that had nothing.

When Diego was 29, it all ended during one night on June 12th, 1937. He had been working late that night to try and earn overtime and additional tips from the night crowd. However, that night, a mob deal had gone south, and what started as an argument turned into a shootout. Diego was caught in the crossfire, shot twice in the chest, and died shortly after. At least seven bodies were taken out of the bar that night, Diego being one of them.

Diego wandered as a Whole, unable to bear the burden of leaving his mother behind without money. However, there was nothing he could have done. But in time, he had been found by a Soul Reaper, who urged and convinced him to pass onto the Soul Society. Before the Soul Reaper performed Konsō on him, he asked more about the Soul Reaper’s role, and why she was doing it. It was there that Diego learned the Soul Reaper’s name was Mia Clyde, and he discovered what their purpose was. It was also discovered that Diego had a strong hunger, resulting in a greater spiritual awareness that Mia found to be remarkable. Once Diego arrived in the Soul Society, he made the decision to apply for the Spiritual Arts Academy, inspired and motivated by the Soul Reaper that had helped guide him.

After passing the entrance exam, Diego was able to prove that he held a great amount of spiritual energy within him, and proved to be a very viable candidate for the role of a Soul Reaper. For those six years, Diego, though light-hearted in nature, still took the classes and the training close to heart and strived to get as much as he could out of the training. His primary focus was on his Kidō skills, understanding and truly appreciating how useful they could be in a tight spot.

Diego graduated from the Shinigami Academy, and joined the 13 Court Guard Squads, committed to Squad Five as one of its seated members. During his time in Squad Five, he began to shed a bit of the studious, academic nature he had during his training and instead have a more open, casual, and light-hearted connection with the rest of the squad. It didn’t take long until Diego became a close part of the squad while taking his responsibilities close to heart.

The betrayal of Sōsuke Aizen left Diego with a sick, cold, and disgusted feeling that took time to break away from. He became sympathetic to Momo Hinamori, knowing she was struck the hardest from Aizen’s betrayal, though just about everyone in Squad Five was hit extremely hard by it. With Aizen now gone, Diego tried hard to forget Aizen even existed, but it was extremely difficult. Instead, Diego vowed to undo the damage that Aizen had caused, and hopefully reestablish the trust that was lost.

Now, with Momo Hinamori as the new Captain of Squad Five, Diego Dakkan has taken the position of being Squad Five’s lieutenant. With the revealing of the Fell Stones, Diego is prepared to make the stride toward recovering them, and making sure they don’t cause any more trouble than what they’ve started already.

Description: Visual

Diego stands 6’5” and has a strong muscular build. Meanwhile, he had hazel-colored hair combed forward along with a fair skin tone complexion. Meanwhile, he had brown eyes, and a dense expression despite the fact he tries to be open. Even though Diego definitely does have the skill, strength, and swordsmanship to handle his Zanpakutō efficiently in melee combat, he still prefers Kidō as his main attack option, usually leaving physical melee strikes as the finishing blows.

In his spirit form, Diego wears the traditional Soul Reaper uniform, but in his human form, Diego wears a sweatshirt and cargo pants, trying to blend in more with the crowd.

In terms of attributes, Diego is more focused on strength and wise calculation. He may not be exceptionally quick on his feet and he prefers to draw out the fight, but his strength and endurance still remain as his strong points, along with his ability to discern and dissect the combative strategies of his opponents.

Weapons: Kasai Fenikkusu – “Fire Phoenix”

Sealed State – Kasai Fenikkusu takes on the form of a katana with a three-foot long bade that’s slightly wider than the typical katana. The blade has single-edged blade, while the hilt takes on a fiery blend of crimson and orange colors. On the butt of the hilt, the insigna kousei 再生 is depicted as the representation of “rebirth.”

Shikai State – Triggered by the “Surround” command, Kaisai Fenikkusu takes on the form of a katana with some resemblance to a feather, though now a glowing engraving of a fiery wing on the blade itself. In this state, the blade has the tendency to ignite fires upon successful strikes. Meanwhile, it increases Diego’s constitution, endurance, and strength, giving him more capability to take blows and yet still keep on fighting.

Shinzui Hidama (Ethereal Pyrotechnics) – Through focused concentration, Diego has the potential to unleash a flurry of essence-based fireballs that restore vitality to Diego for the amount of damage they cause to enemies. Through this ability, Diego can unleash a flurry of roughly twenty fireballs before an extensive cooldown period is necessary.

Sachi Juusha (Wish Chaser) – Though Diego does have the ability to heal wounds using Kidō, the force of the Sachi Juusha allows him to save and restore the health of those who are critically wounded as Diego sacrifices some of his own vitality to provide relief to those who are close to death.

Banaki State – Diego has yet to achieve this state with his Zanpakutō.

Nyurgh, I forgot to mention your SU earlier XD. Unless you aren't done with it then it's fine. That Lucifer summon thing might be interesting later on...*Gets evil thoughts.*

Neo, your SU looks great, no worries there. You both are good to go.

I'll get the RP up in another day or two, unless any of you need more time than that to get ready.

Also I find it amusing that I'm the only one playing an evil character so far XD. YAY FOR BENG SPECIAL.

Default Re: The Fell War Saga <A Bleach RP> [SUs] =REVIVED=

Name: Matsumoto Rangiku
Age: Unknown - appears as a woman in her twenties-early thirties. Likely young due to the timeline.
Gender: Female.
Race: Soul Reaper/Shinigami.
Aspect : 10th Division, Gotei Thirteen, Seretei
Personality: Rangiku tends to be a slacker who dislikes paperwork and loves to drink. She is not the slightest bit modest about her appearance, frequently referring or complaining about her large breasts in normal casual conversation, much to the embarrassment/amusement of anyone around at the time. She is not above using her considerable feminine charms to get her way, as shown when she tries - albeit unsuccessfully - to bribe Ichigo Kurosaki into letting her stay at his house.

Her easy-going and free-spirited personality makes a sharp contrast to the serious Hitsugaya, but the two seem to be quite close regardless. Rangiku met the young boy prior to him utilizing his power and encouraged him to enter the Shinigami academy. As a lieutenant, she is extremely casual around him, almost constantly by his side and showing deep loyalty to him on several occasions, even though her laziness frequently annoys him.

While she seems somewhat self-centered, she is sensitive to the feelings of others, evident when she sees the concern Hitsugaya has for Momo Hinamori, the guilt Izuru Kira shares with her when Gin Ichimaru is revealed as a traitor, and when Orihime feels depressed about her role in Ichigo Kurosaki's life. Despite her lackadaisical image, she can be extremely serious when needed and is a capable fighter and strategist, best-shown when she uses clever teasing to manipulate the third Espada's Fracción into squabbling among themselves long enough to drop their guard and leave them open for an attack.

Rangiku's favorite food is dried persimmon, just like that of Ichimaru. She also shares Orihime's very strange taste in food. She dislikes bamboo shoots because she finds their taste too strong and their texture unpleasant. She likes Japanese dancing, and in addition to her shihakushō robes, she enjoys buying superfluous amounts of clothing from various department stores in the human world. When she feels like drinking, she finds free people and invites them to come out with her, and then has them treat her to drinks, so that she wouldn't have to spend any money. She is drinking buddies with Shunsui Kyōraku and Shūhei Hisagi.


History: Not much is known about Rangiku's prior history, except that she came from Rukongai. As a child, she was saved by former 3rd Division Captain Gin Ichimaru from starvation. He found her by the roadside and told her that if she has collapsed from hunger she must have spiritual power. She recognizes that he must have spiritual power too; Gin confirms that he too has spirit power and proceeds to introduce himself. Rangiku found his name weird.

Following their meeting, they began to live together. Although Gin did often leave without telling Rangiku where he was going. It was during this time that Gin asked Rangiku when her birthday was. Rangiku replied that she did not know as she never counted days until she met him. Following the revelation, Gin told her that, that would mean that the day they met was her birthday.[8]

One day Gin met up with Rangiku as he wrapped a Shihakushō around himself. She asked what he was doing with Shinigami clothes and where he got them. Gin simply replied that he had decided to become a Shinigami and change things, so that they would end without making her cry.

Rangiku joined the Shinō Academy at the same time as Gin. It is unknown when she graduated or when she become the lieutenant of the 10th Division.


While out at the market, she met Tōshirō Hitsugaya. As she yelled at a shop keeper who was being rude to him, Hitsugaya turned around and was knocked down by bumping into her bosom. She then yelled at him for "lying there crying about it and not standing up like a man", although it was her who knocked him down with her large breasts in the first place, but he shook her off and ran away. Later that night Rangiku followed Hitsugaya home and was there when he woke up. She immediately told him to stop leaking his reiatsu everywhere and to get some sleep. She further explained that his grandmother looked pretty cold, which causes Hitsugaya for the first time to notice that the room was exceedingly cold and affecting his grandmother.

Rangiku then told him he should become a Shinigami, stating that kids with power as strong as his need to learn how to bring that power under control. She explained that if he stayed the way he was that his power would end up killing his grandmother pretty soon. At first Hitsugaya wasn't sure what she was talking about but she calmly placed her hand on his chest and asked him if he heard a voice calling out to him. She explained to him that once he has found that voice, he'll understand how to control his power. She noted to him that for that to happen he must become a Shinigami.

Rangiku is first seen when interrupting a small conversation between 5th Division lieutenant Momo Hinamori and 6th Division lieutenant Renji Abarai. She details that the reason that there so few in attendance at the emergency lieutenant meeting has to do with how the all the captains and lieutenants are scattered around Soul Society on their respective missions. She notes that it will take at least half a day to unite everyone. Rangiku then mentions that she can't find her captain anywhere, which prompts Renji to ask who is her captain. When the report is made that intruders have invaded the Seireitei Rangiku is among the others gathered at the meeting who are informed of those missing in action. When 7th Division lieutenant Tetsuzaemon Iba notes that the 4th seat of his division is also missing in action. Rangiku asks him if that is Jirōbō the Kamaitachi to Iba states that it is most likely is.

Rangiku as well as all the other lieutenants are alerted when Momo lets out a scream, causing them all to rush to the scene. She then bears witness to the dead body of 5th Division captain Sōsuke Aizen impaled to the wall of a building with his own sword. She is also the one who restrains Momo Hinamori after her little skirmish with Izuru Kira, when her Captain, Tōshirō Hitsugaya orders them arrested.

She later comes gives a letter from captain Aizen to Momo when the latter is being kept in the 5th Division cell. Rangiku makes note that had her captain not found it the letter would have been taken in as evidence and Momo would have never seen it. Rangiku explains that she doesn't know what is in the letter but as a lieutenant she thinks it is a great honor to be a receiver of a captains final words.

Later, when Hitsugaya faces off with 3rd Division captain Gin Ichimaru, she stops Ichimaru’s blade from killing an unconscious Momo, thus saving her life. Rangiku apologizes, stating she was was going to head back as Hitsugaya had instructed but she felt the spiritual release of Hyōrinmaru and turned back around. She then tells Gin to put away his sword as if he doesn't she will be his opponent. After Gin retreats it is then that she wonders where Ichimaru will go from there. While thus occupied with their own thoughts, a message comes via a Jigokuchō for them stating that the execution of Rukia Kuchiki was being pushed forward. Hitsugaya, determined to get to the bottom of the matter, realizes that the only way to do so would be to stop the execution.

Upon arriving at the Central Underground Assembly Hall Hitsugaya and Matsumoto discover all 46 members are dead. Hitsugaya surmises they have been dead for at least 2 days, but he is concerned about when as Soul Society has been under martial law and their Headquarters had been locked down since Renji's defeat. Further than that the 13 seals of protection was still active and there was no signs of intrusion. Then Hitsugaya realizes the only possible scenario is that they were killed before they were sealed in and that all the recent orders have been in fact false. It is then that he realizes that such a plot would be far too elaborate for Gin to carry out by himself. He then is interrupted by Izuru and he and Matsumoto give chase. Asking Izuru if he was behind the Central 46's death, Izuru tells him no and that he arrived just after he did, he also informs Hitsugaya that instead of chasing him he should be protecting Momo, he then goes on to explain that she escaped the 10th Division Barracks and how she accomplished it. Realizing now that Hinamori has been following him and Matsumoto the entire time he turns back and orders Matsumoto to handle Izuru.

When Izuru realizes that Rangiku is now after him and Hitsugaya has gone he stops running. When Rangiku asks him if he was done running it explains that he has a mission to keep her there, when she asks who gave him that mission he tells her that Gin did. Rangiku tries to reason with him but Izuru refuses to answer her further, he then tells her that the reason he refuses to answer her is because she is about to die. He then releases his Shikai. He asks Rangiku if she knows about his Zanpakutō's special ability. Rangiku plainly tells him that she doesn't and she assumes no one does as he has never spoken about it. Izuru explains that in fact his former classmates Renji and Momo know of it but he assures her she will now know it as well. The two face off and Rangiku realizes that her Zanpakutō has become too heavy for her to hold up. Izuru explains the power of his Zanpakutō and tells her how it has affected hers. He notes that she can't carry around that weight. Rangiku explains that if her Zanpakutō is too heavy she just won't carry it. Rangiku then reveals that his weight-affecting Zanpakutō is rendered useless by her Zanpakutō's ability to dissolve into ash. After their fight, Rangiku hears from 4th Division lieutenant Isane Kotetsu via Bakudō #77 "Tenteikura" that Aizen, Gin and Kaname Tōsen are traitors. Rangiku then runs off to find Hitsugaya.


When she arrives at the Sōkyoku, when Aizen is captured before Gin can act Rangiku appears behind him and grabs hold of his arm and places her Zanpakutō at his neck, asking him not to move and effectively placing him under arrest.[24] When the Gillian’s Negación field comes down to save Ichimaru however, she releases her hold upon him. Ichimaru then expresses his regret that she could have held onto him a little longer. He then bids her a farewell and apologizes.

One week later, Izuru visits Rangiku in the 10th division barracks to apologize. The two get drunk and comment on how they don't need Gin in an effort to remove the feeling of betrayal that they both felt, the events of the week before, most likely forgiven.

DoH, there's too much history for one post. If people want to read her history, go to this link: http://bleach.wikia.com/wiki/Rangiku_Matsumoto

And from here, I'll add on to her history for the benefit of those who need it.


For a time after the defeat of Aizen, Rangiku considered retiring entirely from her life as Lieutenant of the 10th Division, shaken greatly by the events and the sudden reappearance of the man who had once been everything to her and had just as quickly ripped her heart out with his betrayal, contrived as it was.

However, at the urging and entreaty of Hitsugaya Toshiro, Rangiku stayed on, simply taking leave for a short while before returning to her work. Though still much like her former self, she's more prone to mood swings, often varying between extremely happy and far more serious in her bid to hide her discomfort and betrayal still felt regarding Gin Ichimaru. To this day, she will often present a painfully cool manner towards him if she encounters him, if she doesn't outright try to avoid him, as she's not quite sure yet if she'll ever be able to place the trust she had in him back, much as it pains her.


Description: Rangiku has long and wavy strawberry blonde hair, blue eyes, full lips, and a beauty mark located under the right side of her mouth. She is well-known for her curvaceous figure, her most distinctive feature of it is her very large breasts, which are even larger than Orihime Inoue's.

She dresses in the garb typical of Shinigami, though she lets her robes hang loose for her ample bosom to be revealed. She wears a thin golden necklace tucked between her cleavage and a long pink scarf over her shoulders. In addition, her lieutenant's armband is worn on her uniform's sash, as opposed to around the arm. She carries her Zanpakutō behind her back.

While in her Gigai in the real world, she has been shown to dress either very provocatively or stylishly. She wears the school uniform with several buttons undone so that she can reveal her ample bosom as she usually does in the Soul Society with her Gotei 13 uniform.

Weapons:

Powers and Abilities


Expert Swordsmanship Specialist: Rangiku shows a great proficiency in wielding her Zanpakutō. While she can obviously hold her own in a fight, her skill in the wielding of her Zanpakutō comes from her mastery of its special ability. Through sheer imagination in conjunction with her Zanpakutō's special ability, Rangiku has become skilled at taking on large groups at once.

Shunpo: Rangiku's flash steps are great enough to keep up with her captain, but her skill at it is most likely of the same level as most lieutenants. Her skill has proven great enough to easily out-maneuver Arrancar capable of fighting at lieutenant-level skill.

Kidō Practitioner: As a lieutenant, Rangiku seems to have capable understanding of Kidō spells at least enough to identify them upon sight. Though she is not a common user of this art, she has been seen capable of using Bakudō #58. As well as using Hadō #31 without incantation and still have respectable power.

Enhanced Strength: Despite her highly feminine appearance, Rangiku has shown herself to be deceptively strong. During her battle against Nakeem Greendina, she was easily able to hold back the Arrancar's large stomping foot with a single hand and his fist with her forearm, the former while her limiter was still active.

Enhanced Endurance: Rangiku has been shown to have a high endurance. Even fighting against three Arrancar's Fracción she was able to hold her own against the three of them at once.

Enhanced Durability: Rangiku has shown to have a high durability. As she has taken a direct hit from the hollow creature Ayon resulting in the loss of the entire right side of her abdomen and she still was alive.

High Spiritual Power: Being a lieutenant of the Gotei 13, Rangiku boasts a high spiritual energy. She is shown manifesting reiatsu to intimidate Chad and Noba. Her spiritual power is white.

Expert Tactician: Rangiku has shown to be quite intelligent when she needs to be such as in her battle with Nakeem whom she fooled into believing that she was unconscious in-order to request that the limiters be removed more easily, as well as in her battle with Harribel's Fracción and caused them to argue with one another and attempt to defeat them with one concentrated attack

Zanpakuto

Haineko ("Ash Cat"): The Zanpakutō's form is that of a straight-bladed katana. The tsuba is in the shape of a cat's head, with two triangles on the top half curving into ear-points and the bottom half tapering down into a single point. It has a dark red handle. Rangiku keeps Haineko behind her clipped onto her waist obi.


Shikai Special Ability: In its Shikai, Haineko's blade turns to ash, and with a flick of the hilt, she can cut anywhere the ash has landed on. All the ash that surrounds her opponent(s) might as well be her sword. With simple hand gestures and a thought she can control where the ash goes as well as make it take various forms. So far she has created an enveloping cloud which she can then enclose around her opponents turning it into a deadly tornado. This provides her an advantage while fighting groups of enemies.

Though it now takes on the look of scattered ash, each particle is a tiny blade. Rangiku controls the ash to attack from any direction as soon as she moves the hilt, ultimately enveloping and tearing up the enemy. So evidently, Haineko is very hard to fight against in this form. The main attack strength of Haineko comes from how much ash makes contact, thus why it is clumped together. If the ash was to attack the opponent in single particles, the damage would be little to nothing. The ash can cut through objects as easily as a sword would, similar in principle to Byakuya Kuchiki's Senbonzakura. Rangiku has shown that Haineko can be a defensive weapon as well by having it take the form of a shield to defend against Apacci's attack. This katana is incredibly difficult to use.

Bankai: Not Yet Achieved. Rangiku has not yet mastered the Bankai of her Zanpakutō, though she is trying to learn it; however, Haineko is just as moody, lazy, and self-centered as Rangiku is, making her progress difficult, and seems to have grown worse since Gin's return and Rangiku's subsequent emotional upheaval.

OOC: Just warning you Doh, I have weapons training this week, so I may be scarce.

I hope that's enough for Uryu; I'll add to it if you need me to. And heeeeeeere's Gin!




Name: Gin Ichimaru

Age: Unknown; birthday September 10

Gender: Male

Race: Shinagami

Aspect: None

Personality: Gin acts very mysteriously most of the time, and still retains his slightly mocking grin and almost-closed eyes seven years later. No longer needing to hide behind a wall of deception, Gin has revealed his personality is not as severe as his many-year act had implied. Despite acting like he knows little about situations, he knows just as much as any other Soul Reaper, and likely even more with his skills in tactics. Unlike many captains, Gin is not known for having a short temper, but rather for his cold, unflinching composure during combat, though his polite-yet-mocking tone still remains and, of course, still irritates just about everyone else in the Sereiti. Notably, his personality now is much less mocking, and he has expressed a deep regret at not being able to tell anyone what he was up to for the past hundred and sixty years or so, and is actually doing his best to make up for his failed assassination attempt. He has noted feeling exceptionally guilty for making Rangiku have to put up with his façade. He still loved dried persimmon, and maintains his hobby of aimlessly wandering around the Sereiti when he has spare time. He enjoys games of various kinds, and has a bit of a playful streak. He is very serious about the matter of gaining everyone's trust and making them not hate his guts.

History: Gin Ichimaru is, to date, the most recent child prodigy in the line of Soul Reapers. At an early age, Gin witnessed Sosuke Aizen and three other Soul Reapers near where he had made residence in the Soul Society, and immediately knew something was dreadfully wrong with the situation. Something about Aizen did not sit well with him, and he made a silent promise to himself to become a Soul Reaper himself in order to stop him, though this was many years in coming. Also during this time, he met Rangiku Matsumoto and befriended her before abruptly leaving to become a Soul Reaper. He passed the training with flying colors, and quickly became a seated member of one of the Reaper divisions. All that time, he worked with Aizen as closely as he could, applying his mastery of manipulation to seem to be an ally for many years.

Gin was unable to speak to anyone of what he knew for apprehension of Aizen learning what he was up to, leading to him keeping up a façade of, as he put it ‘A cold-blooded, emotionless snake’, a role he played very well. Somewhere along the line, as Aizen’s plan progressed, he assisted in the man’s scheme to take over the Soul Society and destroy the ‘Soul King’, having to assist in covering up the murder of the Central 46, among other things. He was the Soul Reaper near the south gate when Ichigo Kurosaki and co. attempted to enter to rescue Rukia Kuchiki and prevent her execution, and forced them out of the area, though he purposely left them alive. As Aizen’s plans progressed, Gin kept up the façade of a loyal subordinate, up until Aizen’s attack on Karakura town. Seeing the chance to end Aizen’s campaign, Gin attempted and failed to kill him, and was very nearly killed himself. By some stroke of luck, or some last bit of him not willing to die just yet, Gin survived his grievous injuries just long enough to be healed to a condition in which he could still live, though he was amazingly fully restored within a month.

Though some of the other captains wished him executed, after he had fully explained himself, it was decided his betrayal had proper motives behind it, and he was allowed to go free. Over the past few years since he’s recovered, he's been doing his best to clear himself in the eyes of the other captains. Eventually, some time last year, he regained his seat as a captain and earned the trust of some of his fellow Shinigami back for the most part, though a good number still hold distrust and malice for him. He is particularly troubled that Rangiku is also giving him the 'cold shoulder', but he has resolved to earn everyone's trust back if it takes the rest of his life to do so.

Description (both human form and any other forms your character possesses; pictures are fine but include a text description as well): Pic 1 Pic 2 Gin is a moderately tall, thin man looking to be in his twenties, bearing unique silver hair with a slight violet tint. His expression is generally set into a wide, mocking grin with his eyes narrowed to thin slits, though this does change in instances of surprise, anger, and shock. His outfit consists of the usual black Shinigami robes with a captain’s haori covering his shoulders, though he has also been seen in the white robes left over from his tenure as Aizen’s subordinate to be used as what he considers ‘casual attire’.

Weapons: Shinso: It looks like an ordinary wakizashi. The hilt is light-blue with a tsuba made of two slim swirls of metal looping around the blade to make an open oval, resembling an "S".

Shikai: It is triggered by the phrase "Shoot to kill". In the English Dub, however, he uses a command related to piercing/stabbing and ends the phrase with a personal pronoun (him, her, it) defining who he wants to hit.

Shikai Special Ability:
In its Shikai, Shinso's blade glows white and extends at high speed to impale Gin's opponents from a distance. The blade also carries tremendous force when extending, as seen when Gin pushes both Ichigo Kurosaki and the giant Jidanbo out from under the Seireitei gate, despite the latter being firmly braced under it. In addition, Gin can maintain the extension and swing the activated Shinso in wide arcs, attacking multiple targets quickly and simultaneously. Shinso is capable of reaching a maximum length equivalent to one hundred times its original length, earning it the nickname Hyapponzashi when Gin was younger.

Bankai: Kamishini no Yari: In its Bankai state, Gin's Zanpakuto does not change in appearance at all, retaining its small wakizashi form. However, as Kamishini no Yari, the blade is capable of reaching lengths equivalent to 13 kilometers (roughly 8.1 miles) at 500 times the speed of sound. The blade can also retract to its normal size at the same rate. Gin has also stated his bankai is not as fast or as long as he claims but he hasn't elaborated on this statement further to determine what he is specifically referring to.

Bankai Special Ability: Gin's Bankai's main basic abilities are essentially the same possessed by his Shikai, but its power, length and speed are vastly amplified. The blade's tremendous cutting power is significantly increased, to the point where Gin is capable of swiftly cutting an entire town in half with a single stroke while standing a great distance away.

Poison: Kamishini no Yari's true ability as well as its deadliest aspect is not based on its length or speed but rather its ability to turn into dust for just a second when it expands out and contracts. There is a deadly poison inside the blade that dissolves and breaks down cells. He can leave a sliver of his Zanpakuto in an opponent when he retracts Kamishini no Yari, allowing him to kill an opponent at any time when he chooses to by uttering the release command "Kill, Kamishini no Yari" for the technique, while placing his hand up to the target. The result causes the target to completely break down and dissolve at the cellular level from the inside out.

Blade Extension & Contraction:
Gin has made claim that his Bankai can achieve its full length at 500 times the speed of sound: exactly 171,500 meters per second in order to arrive at its full length of 13km in under 0.08 seconds, which would make Kamishini no Yari not the longest Zanpakuto, but the fastest. Because the blade's extension and contraction speed is a highly dangerous ability, Gin tends to downplay its speed whenever he talks about his Zanpakuto, and instead focuses on the length and power of the blade in order to gain a psychological advantage over his opponent.

Buto: By adopting a stance where he firmly grips Kamishini no Yari with both hands and places the Zanpakuto's hilt squarely to the center of his chest, Gin is able to unleash the tremendous extension and contraction properties of his Bankai to an even more terrifying extent than its normal state. This occurs in the form of a piercing maneuver where the extension and contraction of the blade becomes almost completely-unseen to even the most-diligent of observers.

Buto: Renjin: This ability repeats the action of extending and subsequently contracting Kamishini no Yari, as observed within the technique Buto, multiple times in rapid succession. The entirety of this process is completed in a mere moment, resulting in the individual steps involved in this technique becoming virtually indistinguishable from each other, generating an apparent mass of numerous blades that leaves little opportunity for the intended victim to evade successfully.


Genius Intellect: When Gin was younger, he was hailed as a child genius. He was highly proficient in his classes at the Shinigami Academy and he graduated in one year. His skill was already evident at a young age when he gained a seated position in the 5th Division shortly after graduating, ultimately surpassing the previous child prodigy Kaien Shiba, who was already an adult and had taken five years to become a seated officer. Gin has shown himself to be highly manipulative and deceptive even when it's evident. He comes out unscathed due to the calm confusion he plays at, which is a testament to his overall strategy. In his battle with Hitsugaya, Gin was able to manipulate the positions of three people so Hitsugaya would have to choose between saving his own life or Hinamori's without any visible effort. He has shown capable of simple deception by having his opponent focus on one thing to hide the true threat.

Master Swordsmanship Specialist:
Gin is a highly proficient combatant. In combat, he doesn't seem the least bit taken back by the abilities of his opponent, even when they seemingly have an advantage. He fights with seemingly no effort behind his attacks. His ability to wield his combat skills was evident even when he was a child. He easily defeated and killed the former third seat of the 5th division, who by rank and age should have been more powerful and skilled than him. He is commonly seen using his Zanpakuto's special ability, allowing him to be quite deadly at a distance, which is capable of killing multiple targets in one shot. He has shown the ability to use extreme speed mixed with a calm composure and precise attacks.

Immense Spiritual Power:
Gin, without putting out any effort, easily incapacitated Chad, Orihime, Uryu, Makizo, and Ganju with his Reiatsu just by facing the direction they were coming from.

Shunpo Expert:
Though never actually shown using this in combat, after his battle with Toshiro Hitsugaya, he used an impressive Flash Step to retreat. He is also able to fight on even grounds and speeds with Ichigo using Tensa Zangetsu.

Enhanced Durability:
Gin's durability is strong enough to withstand a direct hit from Ichigo Kurosaki's Getsuga Tensho, only suffering a light wound to his forehead as a result.

Kido Practitioner: Gin's actual ability is unknown but he cast Hakufuku on Rangiku Matsumoto, preventing Sosuke Aizen from perceiving her reiatsu
