    Vice Captain Siegfried Bieber, of the 13th Court Squad

    Shinigami: Siegfried Bieber is a quiet man who enjoys chess, is learning the rules to shogi, and can often be seen reading outdoors when not on a mission. He is somewhat skilled at Shunpo. His principal fault is a lack of ambition.

    In combat, he uses his unreleased blade only against sub-Menos Hollows, and opponents that strictly use bladed weaponry. He's a bit over-reliant on his Shikai, which may have to do with his present inability to reach Bankai. If truly worried, he'll use Shunpo almost constantly, to try to get an unexpected whip stroke. His demeanor in combat is usually very serious, and either frightened, determined, or annoyed, depending on how the fight is going.

    Appearance: Wears a normal kimono, save for a buckled belt with his name and rank embroidered on it. His footwear is also a bit odd, using Roman-style sandals instead of the traditional geta whenever possible. His eyes are typically half-closed, as though he were tired, and his black hair typically is a mess of the "bed-head" variety.

    Zanpaktou Name: Ingakumo (Fate Spider)

    Normal state: a sword breaker

    Shikai: Oridase, Ingakumo! (Weave, Fate Spider!)
    The sword breaker rapidly covers itself and Bieber's right forearm with what appears to be spider silk. Almost invisibly, a single strand of the stuff extends from the tip of the blade, long enough to serve as a whip.

    This spider silk is extremely concentrated spirit energy, drawn from the wielder. As such, it is considerably stronger than most substances, allowing parrying with the spiderweb gauntlet. More importantly, the single strand extending from the tip serves much like a monomolecular blade, able to slice through pretty much anything.

    First Shikai special ability (unnamed, as it is not strictly an attack): Siegfried can spend more of his spiritual energy to extend the blade. He can extend the range to roughly twice the length of a bullwhip, but is not skilled enough to do it in the middle of a slice. It can be used to extend the gauntlet as well, but it takes a while when not concentrating too heavily on it.

    Kumo no Soshaku (Spider's Bite): Siegfried can consume all of the spiritsilk on his arm and blade (severing his connection to the whip in the process) to deliver a single, extremely enhanced punch. Striking force is roughly equivalent to direct contact with an exploding grenade.

    Bankai: Yokuyokuna Ingakumo (Careful Fate Spider)
    A quick burst of reiatsu first billows from Siegfried, then collapses back in, quite possibly pulling things with low momentum to him. His body is now covered in spiritsilk armor, and his face is covered by a spiritsilk ski mask. His zanpaktou's sealed form remains in his right hand, now with only a binding around its handle to prevent disarming.

    This form presents him with dramatically improved resilience, as well as the ability to create nearly infinite whips from any point on his body, though the range can only be improved at the cost of much greater windup time.

    Furthermore, his spiritsilk now has the special ability of numbing (within the space of one post) and then completely paralyzing (within the space of two) any body part in which he can strike a bleeding wound. This does not work with his whips, as they move too quickly to transfer an adequate dose of poison.

    Lastly, he can now perform Kumo no Soshaku with any part of his body, or multiple parts at once. He can seal cuts in his armor, and even regrow parts of it from scratch, up to a total of two extra sets of armor.

    Bankai Training: A straight fight against his physically superior Zanpaktou spirit, who could only be overcome through actually summoning the will to not quit at the earliest sensible time.

    Spirit Appearance: Ingakumo appears as a large spider, which communicates telepathically. It is somewhat reserved, like its master, but can be sociable enough. If Siegfried goes too long without training to understand it, Ingakumo will start to nag him.
