Tsukada Ryouichi, Commander General of the Gotei 13
Battle Stats (for my amusement):
Physical Strength: 100 (Ryouichi has a lot of physical strength in melee combat, even if his skill is aimed more towards defense.)
Offense: 60 (What skill Ryouichi has in offensive prowess are more aimed towards quickly incapacitating enemies in a nonlethal manner; so it's not that he's not skilled enough, as much as he only uses a set portion of it.)
Defense: 100 (Ryouichi's defensive skill is top-notch. He always keeps a skilled awareness of his surroundings, and his zanpaktou's abilities add a certain degree of defensibility as well; all in all, it's an arduous task to harm him in melee combat.)
Mobility: 80 (While not -the- fastest, Ryouichi still has an impressive level of speed, which adds to his impressive defensive skills, as well.)
Intelligence: 80 (Ryouichi isn't a genius, but his experience in tune with his tactical mind add for a strong enough asset to be trusted in.)
Kido/Reiatsu: 100 (Ryouichi's reiatsu is massive when he cares to use it; as far as kido goes, he mostly holds his own in bakudo, and has a decent ability to use keikatsu.)
- Norenni Udeoshi
- Nakamaru Masaru
- Former girlfriends?
- Drinking buddies.
Fukui Kyou, 6th Division Unseated: Deceased.
Princess Carina von Geister-Lucaster, favored daughter of Las Noches
Weight: 57 lbs.
Reiatsu/Speaking Color: Goldenrod/#DAA520
Aspect of Death: Carina does not possess an Aspect of Death, as she is an artificial arrancar.
Ruwa Bello, Fraccion
SpoilerRuwa is in many ways what one could consider "attractive". Her long, wild, black hair is always tousled in such a way as to make her seem intriguing; usually, it covers half of her face, only revealing one of her yellow, serpentine eyes. Her feminine form is curved in all the right ways, and while her assets seem like they may get in the way, she manages to have an impressive level of balance despite it.
As far as clothing goes, her flirtatious lifestyle is manifested in the fact that Ruwa "dresses" in a long strand of red cloth wrapped around her body in such a way as to only cover parts of her anatomy that should be left to the imagination, even if it really doesn't leave much. She usually wears some kind of jewelry, but the only pieces that are always on her person are a pair of golden bracelets and one golden anklet.
Her Hollow hole is just above her left hip, and her mask is a bone, serpentine anklet bordering her right foot.
Ruwa charges her cero by making a peace sign with her hand; the cero forms in between her fingers.
Despite the picture, outside of release Ruwa does have legs.
SpoilerRuwa is, in one word, promiscuous.
But not without reason. She learned that she had a niche in getting her way by flaunting her body in more ways than one. She always shows interest in those who she thinks she can get some benefit out of, regardless of gender. She makes friends or partners with such a person, usually drains them of all they are worth, and then leaves them to find another. She's spoiled to a fault, and definitely within the bounds of gold-digging.
However, she does have a soft spot... in all of the "relationships" she's been in, she has developed the desire to find someone she can truly love; in this, and that she has naturally gotten as far as one can get in pairing with an Espada to become a Fraccion, she might not be too inclined on sucking the livelihood out of someone, however, sometimes her nature does get the better of her.
Spoiler...To be revealed.
Ruwa does, however, have a reputation for her promiscuous behavior; both good and bad.
Zanpaktou: Bailarína Del Amor
SpoilerBailarína Del Amor takes the form of a short dagger, with a intricate blade inlaid with gold, and a velvet handle.
Resurreccion: "Forget-me-not, Bailarína Del Amor."
SpoilerRuwa's legs are encased in the prehensile tail of a serpent, long and powerful enough to constrict opponents. Her speed drops down a bit in that her ability to sonido is hindered, however the hierro localized to her tail is stronger than usual, so it can also be used as a blocking implement. From her back, six serpentine heads extend; each with golden hoods in the form of king cobras. Her tail, when used to constrict, has a very powerful crushing force, able to snap bones easily.
Hypnotic Gaze: Each of Ruwa's snakes can concentrate their gaze on a single foe, and those caught looking at it have the memory of an attack that Ruwa has witnessed. One can avert their eyes, or close them completely to avoid it, but this of course comes with the risks of doing such. Until Ruwa either seals, or the specific snake uses their gaze to seal another ability, their memory of that specific attack will be out of reach. When applied to something as generic as swordplay, it won't completely negate their ability to use a weapon, but their knowledge of swordplay is forgotten. As another example, if an enemy uses a specific kido against her (say, byakurai), they will forget that kido, until they use another kido Ruwa uses Hypnotic Sway in response to. Severing a serpent's head will also bring back knowledge of an ability to their effective owner.
Serpents of Love: Each serpent possesses a venomous bite that causes temporary paralysis in a matter of minutes (so Ruwa can more effectively kiss them).
Kiss of Eternal Love: Love only in an odd sense, when Ruwa kisses a foe, they begin to petrify from their feet up. This is only temporary petrification, however, crushing any part of their bodies while under this effect has very grim effects, rendering the body part unusable for some time. The petrification wears off after around an hour. Body pieces never seperate, however they can be fragmented (which explains how limbs stay moderately intact after being crushed).
Physical Strength: 20 (Ruwa likely only possesses any degree of physical strength as from being a Hollow (arrancar).)
Offense: 20 (Ruwa is poorly suited to any offensive activities, having a low degree of skill outside of instinctual "knowledge".)
Defense: 80 (Ruwa's Hierro is fairly impressive in comparison to her other abilities; it can be fairly hard to cut her without some major effort)
Mobility: 60 (While her mobility drops in Resurreccion, outside of it she is fairly proficient in sonido, using that as a means to get out of a fight that seems hopeless.)
Intelligence: 50 (Ruwa isn't particularly overly intelligent, but she possesses a knowledge of interpersonal skills that could be of use against emotionally unstable opponents.)
Cero/Reiatsu: 40 (Ruwa's cero and bala are on the low end of average, but they are at least preferable to a physical assault.)
- The Espada she's Fraccion to.
- Fellow Fraccion.
- Former lovers/friends.
Valeria Abel, Living Vizard
Weight: 104 lbs.
Reiatsu/Speaking Color: Dark Orchid
Hamasaki Hibiki, Teacher at Phoenix Town High
Spoiler(Hamasaki: 浜崎, "Beach/Seashore" and "Small Peninsula/Cape"; Hibiki: 響, "Echo, Sound")
Age: 164 (Projected age: 387)
Weight: 64 lbs.
Reiatsu/Speaking Color: Royal Blue
SpoilerBankai: Not Achieved.
Spoiler"Split the Sea, Amatsu Watatsumi!" (天津海神, Heavenly Sea God)
Hibiki's entire body is encased in a shell-like armor; it is fairly hard, but can be broken through with sufficient effort. Watatsumi has total dominion over water in this form; creating large waves, water spouts, or even thin blades of pressurized water. In addition, the armor created by Amatsu Watatsumi can be rebuilt using water, though it depletes any nearby sources in an appropriate degree (Watatsumi still cannot create water out of nothing; aside from the effects of the iron ball). The blasting effects of the jar are effectively doubled, and the iron ball, upon hitting a solid object (not the ground) can transmute 50~ cubic feet of solid matter into water.
Physical Strength: 20 (Hibiki is by no means strong, only benefitting slightly from the benefits of being a shinigami.)
Offense: 20 (Hibiki isn't particularly skilled in offense, either; only what he learned from the academy long ago.)
Defense: 50 (Being a primary kido caster, Hibiki took it upon himself to learn more defensive maneuvers before he went into seclusion.)
Mobility: 40 (Hibiki isn't particularly quick above land, however, underwater, his speed essentially doubles (indicated by the blue) with his skill in swimming.)
Intelligence: 90 (Being a former Kido Corps member, Hibiki primarily focused on broadening his mind; he is fairly intelligent, and can devise strategies on the spot in most situations.)
Kido/Reiatsu: 100 (While Hibiki's reiatsu isn't impressive, his kido is top-notch, even if he doesn't have full mastery of water-type kido.)
Viatrix Klossner, Owner of Furousha Shop
Reiatsu/Speaking Color: Navy
SpoilerViatrix, in many respects, looks like a typical teenage girl; thanks to her existence as a Bount, her physical aging has more or less ceased. Her hair is long and black, usually covering a fair part of her fair-skinned face. Her eyes border somewhere between brown and red at times.
While Vi isn't amazingly strong, her body is kept in perpetual good shape from the girl's activity. She's fairly thin, her assets somewhere on the scale of average.
On Vi's migration to Phoenix Town, she's taken to wearing the local high-school uniform, despite not going there herself.
SpoilerViatrix is a fairly complex machine when it comes to emotions. At times, she may come across as initially abrasive to people who aren't customers in her store. However, she always treats people she can milk for money or services with respect.
Of course, Vi also has a fairly severe temper, so crossing her usually carries the risk of gaining her ire, which is a terrifying situation to be in for most people.
SpoilerViatrix has been traveling for as long as she's been able to walk. During her travels, she's taken backseat to many Mortal and Spiritual events. In this time, she's found a knack in collecting and creating new wares for her business. Little is known about the time she had growing up, as she prefers to tend to business before conversing with people.
Doll: Schwerkraftfuchs (Gravity Fox)
SpoilerSchwerkraftfuchs takes the form of an umbrella outside of release.
When released, Schwerkraftfuchs takes the form of a metallic gray fox. As most Bount dolls, it has supernatural strength and swiftness as compared to normal beings. However, its true purpose is the ability to finely manipulate the "personal gravity", or more appropriately the mass of any person or object it's touching. While the objects or people themselves are never directly hurt by the manipulation of weight, they are under the mercy of the surroundings. Increasing weight gradually slows people down, and may make them prone to crushing through terrain if they're too heavy. Decreasing weight gradually makes the person quicker of foot, however, strung gusts of wind hold the risk of blowing them away. The changes last for as long as Schwerkraftfuchs is touching the foe, and for around 30 seconds after the fact.
Viatrix has developed a unique style of fighting with her dolls' abilities. Given that Schwerkraftfuchs can manipulate her weight by staying on her back, the girl has focused her martial skill on hand-to-hand prowess. Instead of focusing on physical strength, she instead has Schwerkraftfuchs increase her weight at the moment of impact of one of her punches or kicks, to increase the damage it deals; and decrease her weight to increase the efficiency of her dodges.
Doll Fusion: Not Yet Achieved.
SpoilerIn Viatrix's doll fusion with Schwerkraftfuchs, her entire form becomes indistinct, covered in a silvery metal sheen. A large tail protrudes from her rear, with longswords which glow with various colored runes nestled therein, and a pair of fox ears stick up from the top of her head. Her hands end in claws, which can be used for impromptu slashing attacks.
Weight Manipulation: Viatrix can freely manipulate her mass, as well as those she touches, as her doll's normal ability.
Ruby Blades: These pair of blades repulse foes with the power of gravity, sending them flying upon impact.
Sapphire Blades: These pair of blades imbue an attracting force to Viatrix, making it harder for the those struck to run away. The effect lasts for around a minute, if not struck again.
Emerald Blades: These pair of blades imbue an anti-gravity force, making it harder for foes to approach Viatrix. The effect lasts for around a minute.
Garnet Blades: These pair of blades give the target a gravitational pull, making close objects be pulled into them, possibly causing damage & making it harder to move. The effect lasts for around a minute, if not struck again.
Graviton Blade: By combining all 8 of the blades, Viatrix can wield this oversized zweihander (around 9 feet long), condensing and dispersing gravity for unique energy attacks.
SpoilerPhysical Strength: 30 (While definitely above the human threshold, Viatrix isn't particularly strong for a spiritual being.)
Offense: 60 (In addition to selling wares over nearly a century, Viatrix has honed her offensive skill through many types of martial arts.)
Defense: 30 (Viatrix is mostly offensive-minded, but she does keep up a decent defense through her skill.)
Mobility: 50 (Particularly while using her dolls' abilities, Vi is fairly mobile, always moving unless she's rearing up for a strike.)
Intelligence: 60 (When conventional methods don't work, Vi can usually come up with an alternative method to fight a foe.)
Kido/Reiatsu: 0 (Viatrix has no kido to speak of, and as a Bount her reiatsu is naturally undetectable by normal means.)
SpoilerViatrix has several types of spiritual wares in her store, not just useful for Shinigami, but anyone who's spiritually aware.
- Gigai: Viatrix has a wide selection of gigai types for her shinigami customers.
- Soul Candy: As above.
- Modsouls: As above, however their illegal nature makes Vi less likely to do up-front dealings with them.
- Hollow Trackers: Vi always keeps these in stock, as they tend to be useful even to non-shinigami.
- Reiatsu Concealment Cloaks: A valuable type of item, Viatrix occasionally brings these cloaks out for show.
- Kido Scrolls: (Non-Canon) Obtained from shinigami contacts, these scrolls duplicate the effects of kido for those spiritually aware who can't use kido themselves.
- Garganta Service: Mostly to keep the shinigami off of her back for consuming souls, Viatrix has at some point bargained for the secret of creating artificial Garganta. The reishi from the garganta realm gives Vi enough sustenance so she doesn't need to subside on Souls. However, she's willing to bargain for travel through the Garganta to most places, so it's a viable "ware".
- Reishi Cola: (Non-Canon) These bottles of reishi (disguised as soda) give Viatrix's fellow bount sustenance without having to resort to finding souls to eat. For a price, anyhow...
- More pending...
Talon Gunvhald, Privaron Espada 104
Reiatsu(Speaking Color)/Cero: Indigo/Transparent
Aspect of Death: Vengeance
SpoilerSegunda Etapa: Not yet achieved.
SpoilerIn Segunda Etapa, Talon's entire body is covered by draconic "armor"... however, the appearance is hardly apparent, as in this form, Talon forces light to bend around her, making her effectively invisible, a transparent mass. Only when she stands still or is close in can a foe begin to see her, and it doesn't make her ability to move any more quiet.
SpoilerPhysical Strength: 60 (Talon possesses a fair amount of physical strength as an arrancar.)
Offense: 60 (Being a former Espada, Talon is fairly skilled in using her techniques in an offensive manner.)
Defense: 40 (Talon's hierro and dodging ability is fairly average.)
Mobility: 100 (Being able to fly in her ressurreccion, and a fairly skilled practitioner of sonido, Talon's mobility is certainly her most impressive aspect.)
Intelligence: 60 (Talon isn't a battle genius, but she can usually think her way out of a tough spot.)
Cero/Reiatsu: 40 (Talon's reiatsu and cero power are just below average.)
- Tark: Chew toy. Adamantly refuses the bear-man's advances.
- Alejandro: Most hated rival.
Agent 13 and Hollow Researcher, Tsukino Hiroto
SpoilerType: Mortal Medium
Speaking Color: Teal
SpoilerHiroto is a thin, pale, disheveled-looking man, with thin hair died blue and combed to one side, and remarkable blue eyes which he hides behind orange-tinted glasses. When not in a lab-coat, he tends to walk around in a green jacket and navy slacks.
SpoilerHiroto, in one word, is irrevocably insane. His methods are morally questionable, his empathy for the common man is nil, and he has little to no regard for the safety of society. There is no question he is a prime candidate for institutionalization, and yet SWORD continues to consider him a valuable asset (or a dangerous enough foe) to keep him on their side.
The only real humanity he shows is in the oddest of places; he treats the hollows he captures and mind-controls like his pets, as such, he is prone to fits of rage and plots of vengeance when one of them are killed.
SpoilerHiroto has long been a member of SWORD, as apparent by his rank, and one of the primary researchers on Hollows. Other than that, however...
SpoilerHiroto was condemned to an insane asylum, for his violent reaction to seeing hollows... or, rather, his violent reaction to seeing hollows killed. He spent a short period of his life as a small-time terrorist in the eyes of the Mortals, attempting to strike at Shinigami by setting bomb traps, completely ignoring the collateral damage. His skewed perspective had grown into a love for Hollows, considering them naturally beautiful and a pinnacle of evolution, even though his exposure was limited given the danger (he had mostly survived encounters with hollows on luck); so, shinigami purifying them was naturally a crime punishable by death in his eyes. During his trial, he held no issue in explaining his actions, which naturally caught the attention of SWORD, albeit not enough for them to bail him out from his sentence.
In his years in the Asylum he came up with a myriad number of theories on Hollows, which sparked SWORD's interest in freeing him from his prison.
Scanner: These pair of glasses have an intelligent computer that recognizes patterns and analyzes opponents for their weak points.
Spirit Shock: Harnessing power similar in theory to a seele schneider, this unique glove steals spiritrons from the air as well as opponents, physically draining them, and storing it in the glove for use with his other tools. It glows red when in use.
Trainer's Glove: This glove allows Hiroto to control Hollows with controllers (see below) attached to them with certain simple commands.
Aero Boots: These boots allow Hiroto to airwalk, much like a shinigami or hollow.
Hollow Controllers: These devices (small blue orbs when dormant) latch onto a Hollow's mask on contact, making the creature a slave to Hiroto's desire (as above). However, they can be removed (they protrude from the struck area) or damaged, freeing the hollow instantly. However, Hiroto can only control basic hollows with these; anything stronger than a Gillian is out of reach.
SpoilerHiroto always carries a fair number of smoke grenades, as well as knockout gas on his person. Other than that, he tends to be unarmed.
SpoilerThese Hollows are always in Hiroto's presence, and are more or less his favorites.
Flamespine: This hollow looks somewhat like a cross between a huge lizard and porcupine, with ash-gray skin, and a dozen or so red spines on its back. Each spine burns near the temperature of magma, are extremely sharp, and can be shot out like a projectile. Each spine takes about a half a minute to regenerate.
Ironwing: This green, insectile hollow stands upright at around 6 feet tall, with a pair of large wings like a fly and two iron-hard claws not unlike a crab. Ironwing boasts significant defenses, however a significant enough force can break through its carapace.
Octoblast: This blue, octopus-like Hollow has cannon-like openings at the end of each of its tentacles; from each of these, it can let loose an explosive blast of ink that blinds foes and hinders their movements.
Doompine: This tall, pine-tree-like hollow has low-level regeneration as long as it has contact with the sun, and attacks with several vines that stretch out from its body.
Magnus, Living Siege Machine of the Samsara
Weight: 816 lbs.
Reiatsu/Speaking Color: Sandy Brown
SpoilerMagnus is pretty plain appearance-wise. His only notable trait from initial observations is that he is very short for a male. His hair is relatively short but messy, and almost perpetually dirty, coated with sand, dirt, and occasionally small pebbles are caught in it. His green eyes are unremarkable, and his teeth are yellowed. He is always wearing a brown hoodie and sweatpants, and almost constantly smells like dirt.
SpoilerMagnus is for the most part quiet and soft-tempered. He has an almost unnatural love for animals, but no particular interest in anyone else (not that he's hostile to them). However, this can all change on command from another Samsara, whereupon which he becomes a dangerous, aggressive force that will destroy anything in his path until told otherwise.
SpoilerMagnus has a smattering of hollow-like memories from his past, however he has little desire to find their origin point.
SpoilerMagnus is a Samsara, possessing all the abilities unique to them.
Blank Manipulation: Every member of the Samsara is capable of utilizing Blanks for various purposes. They may duplicate Kido (if their memories contain such information), create weapons or simple items, duplicate flashstep or sonido (again based purely on their memories), or fly. Samsara may also heal with the power of the Blanks, capable of restoring even lost limbs if given proper time and concentration.
SpoilerBala: Magnus has no particular inclination to use bala, preferring cero.
Cero: Magnus' cero are fairly powerful, but are mostly used for their secondary effect: they are unusually solid and upon contact with any kind of structure, they spread wide, to cause as much destruction as possible. As such, one well-placed cero could topple an entire skyscraper.
Hierro: Magnus' hierro is fairly powerful, allowing him to walk away unscathed from most blows.
Sonido: Magnus borders on complete incapability of sonido, so prefers not to use it. As such, his speed is fairly low and ponderous.
Stone Body: Though diminutive in stature, Magnus hides an unnatural body mass and strength, as if he were made from stone. He is very hard to push back or knock over, however this works against him as well as he is unable to jump or air walk for long before crashing to the ground.
Earth Control: By using blanks, Magnus can create earth in almost any state. He usually uses this to mold the battlefield or make unique offensive actions.
Animal Friend: Animals have an unusual level of friendliness towards Magnus. Usually.
Water Weakness: Water dissolves Magnus' earth structures, and appears to have a harmful effect on him, as well, reducing his mass and defenses.
'Resurreccion': Using a large number of blanks, Magnus can enter a state not unlike resurreccion, becoming a massive tyrannosaurus rex composed completely from stone. His defensive power skyrockets, and his speed gets a minor boost. He gains no notable abilities, and has not given a name to this state.
SpoilerAge: ? (Appears 11~).
Weight: 58 lbs.
Reiatsu: Dark Slate Gray
SpoilerThis girl looks like roadkill sewn up into the semblance of a pre-teen girl. Red hair tied off to a single-side ponytail, tied with a belt. Different-colored eyes that seem plucked from different eyesockets. Different colored skin patches with stitches, zippers, and a projectile-like scar below her right collarbone. A stocking literally stitched into her right leg. Her left arm is entirely wrapped in bandage, with large bolts sticking out; truly, this girl screams out on a mere look as a crime against humanity, and yet she exists.
SpoilerThis nameless girl seems somewhat morose and sullen at most times. It almost adds a huggable trait to her, that could be tolerated if she didn't look like she should be crawling with maggots. This does not change in a fight, however oddly enough she is fairly quick to get into one if a threat is perceived.
SpoilerDo you really think you're going to find anything here? She's a mystery!
...Though this girl has been witnessed around Zaraki at times, if you ask the right people. She has somewhat of an undeveloped reputation for beating up people who try to mess with her, and occasionally crushing a few houses, though the description of her usually puts investigating shinigami off from believing the stories.
Zanpaktou: Sakadatsu (Reverse Constructor/Deconstructor)
SpoilerDeconstructor is a fairly long katana for such a small girl, with a blade measuring over half her height (2 feet 3 inches). Needless to say it is very unwieldy for her.
Shikai: "Blood! Blood! Blood! Love! Rock n' Roll, Sakadatsu!"
SpoilerWith a massive roar, Deconstructor's blade transforms into a wide, rotating hellblade that looks like a chainsaw. Its hilt is twisted and elongated, making for easier use by its master. In shikai, Deconstructor has very little cutting power for skin and bones, though it does leave very painful wounds, so foes sensitive to pain will likely be debilitated. Other than that, they are not fatal unless in great quantity (easily thrice what a normal sword needs). Deconstructor's true shikai power centers around its destructive reaction to non-biological matter (though one exception are trees). It easily cleaves through buildings, the ground, and even, if their owner is not careful, other zanpaktous.
SpoilerZombie Strength: The girl has remarkable strength that belies her size. Her hakuda is undeveloped, but a punch from her is certain to fracture or even break a bone, and can knock an average unseated out easily.
Zombie Body: Though she is as vulnerable from having her limbs chopped off if facing a cruel enough opponent, this does not seem to hinder her life any. Though she isn't likely to do much use in a fight with a missing arm, let alone if she's lopped into many pieces. With skilled hands, she can be sewn back together to no ill effects on her bodies function. As long as her brain is left mostly intact, she can be rebuilt.
Undeveloped Speed: Not unsurprising considering her other traits, this girl is rather fast for her size, even employing primitive shunpo. However, she often crashes through buildings, unawares, thanks to her lack of skill.
