    Shiaki Koujin:

    A rather pleasant fellow, Koujin is the recently appointed Captain of the 6th squad. He is tall and fairly thin, with a toned body and the appearance of an age in the early twenties. He has tied back shoulder-length black hair, with brown-to-black eyes, and no facial hair. He wears a standard Shinigami uniform and captain's haori, though his zanpaktou is strapped across his back right to left. He tries to keep his emotions restrained, though they often get away from him. He is also naive when it comes to captainly duties, being the most recently promoted captain and not having much experience with the position. When in combat he tends to let his adrenaline get to him, though if something serious pulls him off his buzz (like a friend getting hurt) he will get -really- serious. He is skilled at shunpo and zanjutsu, though his kido is definitely lacking. An unusual ability he possesses is to manipulate Reishi in a raw form (like how Ichigo can use it to protect himself).


    Reitsu:

    It isn't really colored so much as it distorts light coming through it, though faint iridescent flickers can be seen (text is in black italics). An interesting quality to his reitsu is how dense it is. It never extends far from his body, but all of it is compressed into this area causing his spiritual pressure to be incredibly strong (in close proximity to him). He is also able to manipulate it to a surprisingly fine degree, and can do things with it that most others would require kido for (though much more roughly than actual kido).


    Zanpaktou:

    Unreleased, it appears as a rather straight nodachi, with a large, clear crystal set in the pommel.

    Shikai: Suishou no ha (Crystal Edge)With the command 'Kousai ni kudakero' (shatter into brilliance) he re-sheathes his zanpaktou horizontally in front of himself, which at the same time seems to dissolve at the same time it regrows (right to left for both). Suishou no ha is about 6 feet long, and up to eight inches wide at it's widest. It appears to be made entirely out of diamond, and has a few swirls and hooks emerging gracefully from the slightly curved blade. The weapon is incredibly hard and sharp, to the point that even blocking with it can nick and chip the opposing blade. When striking an enemy with it, small crystals will grow in the wound, causing pain, stiffening the area, and hampering movement. Koujin can snap off one of the small spikes and extend it into a pure-crystal duplicate of the weapon's unreleased form (the spike regrows after being removed). The newly-created off hand weapon shares the same properties as the released form.

    Bankai: Kongouseki Yachiyo-Suishou no ha (Diamond Eternity-Crystal Edge)The main form and the unreleased duplicate are held crossed in front of the face, then quickly snapped to the sides, where they 'shatter' into their bankai forms. The shikai form reduces in width while slightly increasing in length, while the duplicate increases until they become matching crystal blades. Identical, each has a curved handle and a graceful sweeping blade, with a small secondary curved blade extending from the front of each weapon. Koujin gains transparent and thin, though incredibly hard, armor over his torso, forearms and shins; and an elegant diadem of crystal (which still protects him quite well from head-blows). His haiori transforms into an iridescent crystalline cape, with a high pointed collar. His Zanpaktou have increased in hardness to the point that they can snap even shikai with relative ease, and can cut through just about anything. They can even slice through reitsu, disrupting kido, zanpaktou abilities, and practically anything created from reishi. When required, his bankai's 'trump card' actually comes as a result of its release process. During the release, thousands of tiny shards of concentrated-reshi crystals litter the area (same stuff his swords themselves are made from). Koujin can command them to grow incredibly fast, trapping limbs, stabbing enemies, and forming protective walls. If combat leaves the general area that he released though, he is forced to scrape his twin blades together to create more 'reshi-crystal-dust'.

    He has an inkling that this is not the true form of his bankai, but so far Suishou no ha isn't talking.

    One of the properties that crystals have is if a crystal grows where there is an impurity in the environment, the impurity will bind itself into the growing crystalline lattice. This grants specific properties (like color) to the crystal. Koujin's 'true Bankai' gains a similar property in the form of an adaptive ability based off the unique qualities of his opponents. After absorbing the ambient spirit particles left over from an opponent's attack (of decent strength), The zanpaktou changes color and gains some ability related to the opponent that used the attack. It's usually a passive type of ability, but occasionally can be a form of attack. Koujin will also must to deal with some of his opponent's personality leaking over, but not enough to be much of a problem.

    After this final release, the zanpaktou changes form. Each sword looses its handle but stays approximately the same shape (the entire length of the weapon becomes a blade), and they float near his hands/arms where they are controlled telekinetically . He also gains several smaller floating blades made from crystal in the shape of his unreleased form orbiting nearby his body, controlled in the same way. A number of small clumps of crystal float near his arms and body as well. He gains a pair of pauldrons and his armor becomes spikier. The floating weapons can't move more than a few feet from him, but allow him to attack from directions impossible if they were wielded normally, as well as attacking with several more weapons than someone with only two arms could.

    This release increases must of his combat abilities, but his reaction time, physical strength, and durability are boosted the most. He must activate this ability separately (and after releasing) his normal bankai.

    Appears as a thin, sinuous dragon made entirely of crystal, with an attitude that is usually the opposite of how Koujin is feeling at the time. If not, then snarky. Often talks to Koujin, though just as a voice in the back of his head.

    A large area of tiled ground, the tiles (big tiles, maybe 5' on a side) made from various precious and semi-precious gems. The whole area is enclosed in a massive geode, with a fairly large hole in the top, where a partly-cloudy day can be seen. The sunlight is more often than not filtered by a cloud, however occasionally it shines straight in and makes the entire place sparkle.
