    Appearance:
    Spoiler
    Show

    A very skinny young man, attractive to the ladies of all ages. He is fit enough though it is obvious his talents are not aggressively physical in nature. He wears a traditional Shinigami uniform, though he wears it open and loose at the chest where he keeps loose paper of all kinds and writing and drawing implements tucked inside. Wears a green gripped katana on his hip at times, it is not his actual zanpaktuo, but that is not common knowledgel.

    Personality:
    Spoiler
    Show

    Eiji is perhaps the most highly regarded and talented artist/calligrapher in all of the Gotei. His portraits are beautiful, his landscapes eloquent, his calligraphy awe inspiring. He is a natural and artistic prodigy when it comes to the pen arts. (However when it comes to poetry and prose he is "less" than highly skilled) He comes from a Lesser Noble house and was raised in a high degree of luxury. He is well aware of his talent and the constant demands from the Gotei, Noble Houses, Lesser Nobles, merchants and general citizenry have on him and his unique artistic gift.

    He is not fond of fighting nor really much physical exertion at all. He is fit enough to pass the base level tests for combat, though is wary to contribute. He enjoys training in martial arts but does it privately as he is highly critical of himself. One of the reasons he joined the 1st Division was so that he could work less in the combat duties of the Shinigami.

    He tries to act like the fame and notoriety of his artistic success is beneath him, but he will often be found at restaurants and bars drinking and eating on other people's dimes. A scribble on a napkin or quick signature in his hand has gotten him many a favor. It is even said there is at least a 1 year wait by wealthy women alone for services of producing a portrait done by Eiji.

    He is a charming young man, he is confident about his abilities and quick to leave a situation he is bored with. He is never lacking for money and takes every opportunity to wear the finest clothes, drink the finest drink and eat the finest food. He also never hesitates to share his money and wealth on his friends an those around him, which has made him popular not only within the Gotei (as he has helped fund many barracks repairs or upgrades) but also in the restaurants and bars (as he voice is often heard saying "a round of sake for everyone!!!")


    History:
    Spoiler
    Show

    Eiji has no knowledge of his life in the mortal world, and grew up in the Lesser-Noble Ito household from as far back as he can remember. He was told he was only a baby when the Ito house adopted him, and he has been a consistent source of pride and joy for the Ito family.
    He grew up in wealth and was taught for many years in the arts of history, reading, writing, etiquette, philosophy, but almost as soon as he could lift a pen it was noticed he had artistic talent (some of his childhood drawings fetching the largest sums of money for his work on the art market in the Soul Society).

    While his studies in other areas were still taught, the Ito family pushed him more and more towards his artistic skills. He had little worry in his life and knew and cared little for the Shinigami and the Gotei. As he aged he spent his time drawing, writing, and fraternizing with women.

    The Ito Family over the years had provided many members to the Gotei over its long history, and Eiji was not on its radar until an older member of the Ito family, a Shinigami in the Gotei, returned to the family for an extended period of time due to nearly fatal injury. Over that time he took an interest in Eiji after sensing his growing spiritual pressure. They were fast friends and he told him many stories of the adventures he had been on, as well as the attractive talented Shinigami women in the Gotei. The older Gotei member once healed begged Eiji to join the Gotei and enroll in the academy, but Eiji saw little interest in joining.Only once word came of the elder member tragically dying to save a family did something deep inside of Eiji come forth. He packed up his pens and papers, and after a beautiful scroll was written to his family about what he was doing, he marched to the Academy and enrolled.

    At the Academy he was less than a stellar student as he was more interested in the girls and his art than the coursework.Even getting higher scores it is said for his beautiful writing on his tests rather than his answers.He also did not enjoy the physical work either.He was not so fond of the sword, and was more interested in the calligraphy of the Kido books rather than the memorization and incantations. He wasnt particularly sensitive to spiritual pressures, his shunpo was VERY good, and he was reluctantly talented in hakuda, but it is obvious he is not a combatant first.

    DUring his 6th year, Eiji had just finished working on meditation, and had found nothing to come of it. He always found meditation to be so boring. He was considering going out on the town when he felt an urge to do some calligraphy. As he sat in front of the paper and worked, he found quickly that the words he was writing were coming quicker than he could think them. It felt like someone else was saying them. The words flew out of him faster and faster, his arm got quicker and quicker and the words were like they were talking with him. Eventually it became apparent that Eiji had NOT come out of his meditation and in fact he was speaking with his Zanpakuto. The conversations escalated more and more and eventually it concluded with the Eiji yelling "what is your name!!" of which the Zanpakuto then exclaimed loudly ""Eregantona Shinjitsu!!" (エレガントな真実!!, Elegant Truth!!)". This was his Zanpakuto's name, and as he said it his pen in his hand glowed red and got hotter and hotter and hotter until it could barely be held on to, then in a flash of red energy it transformed into a beautiful black and silver pen. He looked at it, then it wrote more out on the paper in front of him, it did not feel very fast any more in fact, he felt like it was slow and pushed it go faster, which it did with no hesitance. It began to read that it gave him the ability to write fast, and that in time it could allow him to do more. Then as fast as the words came, they stopped and Eiji came out of his meditation and where his practice sword once lay across his lap, now only the black and silver pen remained.

    Eiji also could tell there was something different about himself as well. He was stronger and felt more enlivened. He picked up the pen and began to write, and it was fast. VERY fast. Faster than he could think it seemed. He had never been able to write this fast before, nor draw. It was as if his mind and his hand were linked together and in concert with one another.

    At school the next day all the other student and the instructors could tell walking in that he Eiji was glowing with spiritual power. He was taken aside and he explained what had happened and showed them what he could do. He was then made aware that he was in his Shikai form and that it looked as if his Zanpaktuo was a constant release type. His future seemed very apparent. He was destined to utilize his skill with the pen, in the 1st Division.
    A scribe of this skill was extremely useful and his calligraphy skills would only further benefit the 1st division's more diplomatic publications.

    So he did indeed graduate to the 1st Division, and spent his time doing clerical work often times seemingly faster than he could receive it. Getting his work done quickly was always a good thing, and for the artistically and female minded Eiji it was even more useful as he had much more free time. His fast and high level of completing his work combined with his fame and talent raised him to much popularity in the Gotei and as such he went up in rank quickly. He wasnt a normal leader, but he did find himself being able to direct and organize other note takers and scribes quite well.

    He now spends most of his time finishing his work quickly and spending as much time as he can on his art or in the bars and restaurants with women. He has little desire to complete his training with his zanpakuto and learn any further skills from it.

    Take no physical form, but instead guides Eiji's hand as he writes talking to him through those words. The words will be written in various ways as to show the emotion or intensity of the Zanpakuto words. what is being written on is a matter of what is in the vicinity. It may be parchment, it may be a tree, it may be a window, it may be blood etc..

    The inner world of Eregantona Shinjitsu is an exact copy of wherever Eiji is at the time he enters it, just empty of any other souls.

    Eregantona Shinjitsu has NO sealed state. However if knocked unconscious, I guess it would return to the form of a standard katana with a green hilt, until Eiji awakened. However, Eiji will at times wear a practice katana with a green hilt if the attire is called for, and keep his zanpaktuo in his shirt pocket.

    Sealed state fighting style:

    As it has no sealed state, unless Eiji is unconscious therefore it has no fighting style. However, Eiji will at times wear a practice katana with a green hilt if the attire is called for, and keep his zanpaktuo in his shirt pocket.

    Zanjutsu:
    Spoiler
    Show

    His swordsmanship is very lacking, while he knows the skills and is capable enough for his rank if pushed to do so, he loathes swordsmanship and the training in it. While he wears a “fake” zanpaktuo for appearances, he hardly unsheathes it and has left it behind at restaurants or bars quite often. While his swordsmanship is quite lacking he did receive additional training with knives in the Academy through his Hakuda training in various martial arts. And is quite adept at close combat knife and dagger fighting.

    Hakuda:
    Spoiler
    Show

    When first taking Hakuda courses at the Academy Eiji struggled somewhat with the varying techniques.However, once his Shikai awakened and the power of his Zanpaktuo manifest in him at all times. He came to learn Hakuda rather quickly and became quite good at it.The speed of his hand to write and draw at superior speeds made simple parallel to hand to hand combat. He is very above average in hand to hand combat, and of all combat types for a Shinigami to employ, Hakuda would be the one Eiji would be most likely to use. Eiji tends to focus on hand and arm focused hand to hand fighting as well. Boxing, Karate, etc. While Eiji, is quite skilled in Hakuda he rarely trains with anyone in it and tends to do so privately. He himself is very self conscious about his skill in it, as it is a skill he has such a high degree in but is not something he was born with (like his writing an art), he takes great pride in his hand to hand training and as such he holds himself to a much higher standard than anyone else would. He often even talks down about his skill in Hakuda, when anyone who had gone to school with him and seen him fight in it or seen him by chance training it would know quite the opposite.

    Special Hakuda (name here of his personal style of martial arts)
    Eiji’s Shikai is not intended to be used for combat, but with his Hakuda training and his Shikai’s ability to allow him to write and draw at extreme speeds has led to him utilizing a very stylized fighting style of his own, combining knife fighting and calligraphy to form a kind of ballet of high speed strikes and thrusts which match with deliberate kanji strokes.

    Hoho:
    Spoiler
    Show

    Being in constant Shikai, his Hoho is increased at all times, though it tends to be pushed mostly towards his hands speed. He was very adept in the Academy with Hoho, and was very fast, learning shunpo rather easily, and trait he has continued to hone and get better at as he ascended the ranks. As skilled as he is at it, he rarely is found rushing anywhere.

    Kido:
    Spoiler
    Show

    Very below average, only knowing a few incantations well enough to use them without incantation. Was more interested in the writing of Kido rather than the use of it while in school. He could write out any incantation in the book, however casting it would be very difficult.

    Reiryoku:

    He has a good amount of spiritual power and his sensitivity is well enough for someone of his rank, but he is not adept at pushing it or using outside the normal ways.

    “Eregantona Shinjitsu!! (Elegant Truth)" (was only said once when first manifest as it is a constant release Shikai)

    Shikai state physical appearance:
    Spoiler
    Show

    Eregantona Shinjitsu takes the constant form of a thin pen. It is black and silver and is very thin and perfectly fitted to Eiji’s hand. Its silver tip is quite sharp and its edge extends up the pen somewhat in the center. Eiji could strike with it if he wanted as a small dagger or very short cutting knife, but the look of it would not indicate it could be used as such.

    Shikai state fighting style:
    Spoiler
    Show

    Eregantona Shinjitsu is not meant for fighting as far as Eiji has trained with it. He has trained in his martial arts work to fight with knives and daggers as a means to utilize his Shikai’s form. Eiji’s Shikai is not intended to be used for combat, but with this training and the Shikai’s ability to allow him to write and draw at extreme speeds has led to him utilizing a very stylized fighting style of his own, combining knife fighting and calligraphy to form a kind of ballet of strikes which match kanji strokes at high speeds.

    Shikai state special ability:
    Spoiler
    Show

    Eregantona Shinjitsu is a constant release Shikai and has one primary ability, the ability to enhance Eiji’s speed when writing and drawing, and as an extension do anything with his hands utilizing these skills (i.e. his personal style of martial arts). The best way to describe the ability is to liken it to allowing Eiji’s hand and thoughts to be linked together in such a way that they are practically in sync. If Eiji can think it, it can be written at the same speed. It allows him to be without question to be the fastest writer in the Gotei, and this speed does not hinder Eiji to be as artistic with his strokes as he would like to be. It does not force him to do this activity fast if Eiji does not desire it.

    If ever achieved his black and silver pen would slightly become longer into more of paintbrush with a very long streamer attached to it. Still very sharp at the tip and on its side.

    His fighting style would not change very much, however Eiji would likely train to find a way to enhance his personal style of martial arts to include the extended reach of his new weapon.

    Upon the command of “Bankai” Eregantona Shinjitsu would transform itself and would allow Eiji to “draw” or “write” out things which would make them come into reality for short periods of time. Eiji’s heightened speed is not lost in this new ability. The zanpaktuo would leave pale red marks in the air like a floating “sketch” until its completion. These items can be as intricate as Eiji can imagine, even allowing for mechanical items if done and depicted correctly. They would only last as long as Eiji was in Bankai form and even then no longer than 5 minutes at a time. While constructing a living thing would seemingly impossible, Eiji can depict a living thing, but for much less time. Only one minute maximum. He would have to depict the item and then write on it in Kanji its basic abilities. There is no limit to how long Eiji takes to construct one of these items, but it is limited by him having to be in Bankai to construct it and must be done in one sitting. If Eiji had the desire to produce a living thing depicting every detail of the anatomy of such an item, it could last for 5 minutes, however any mistake would be catastrophic to the depiction and its movements.

    2 Examples:

    1:
    For a steel wall to block an attack, Eiji would draw in the air the wall in its size desired, then adding kanji to it for its property for being “steel”. Once done, it would materialize and stay in existence for 5 minutes.

    2:
    For a nameless Shinigami to stand at the doorway of an office to make it look like there is a guard, Eiji would draw to the size wanted the look of the Shinigami and all the clothes and accessories, then adding kanji for any properties of the Shinigami. In this case: breathing motion, random blinking, move head from right to left every 3 seconds, if someone is within 5 meters the eyes would look to the person and the figure would say “halt” and grab its sword at the grip. All of this (and more if desired) would have to be written out in kanji before it would be materialized. Then it would only last for 1 minute as this form assumes to much intricate movement to be depicted by Eiji’s hand.
