    Yama, Yuuta: Vice/Acting-Commander of the Kido Corps

    Spoiler
    Show

    Reiatsu: Dark Red
    Height: 9’ 1"
    Weight: 800lbs.~
    Age: 268 (apparently somewhere between his late twenties to mid-thirties)
    General Theme: Never Meant To Belong
    Climatic Battle: ?

    Appearance:
    Yuuta's looks often tend to leave one with the impression of an irate bodybuilder/bouncer that has subsisted solely by consuming spoonfuls of growth hormones/steroids in a manner not unlike breakfast cereal. However, the simple truth of the matter is that he was just born with a great deal of potential for becoming utterly massive, with a natural tendency to easily develop muscle. Given his family's strict martial history, and his inherently impressive stature, he was further pushed until his build reached its current gargantuan state.

    Yuuta Yama wears the generic black hakama that most shinigami adorn themselves with, but only dons a matching haori when obligated to. The markings needed to cast Tenteikūra are hidden among the many tattoos adorning his often-bared arms and torso. Under, and through, all of the arcane symbols stained into his skin lie numerous scars that imply that this behemoth of a man has taken (at the very least) his fair share of hard knocks.

    History: Yuuta is the only child of a couple of low-ranking members within the Yama (minor noble) family. Given his distaste for violence, and his inclination towards prioritizing his surprisingly high mental aptitude, the majority of his extended family views him as an utter disgrace (despite his position within the Kido Corps) due to his adamant refusal to "properly utilize" his massive physique by upholding the family tradition of serving with the Gotei's 11th division. Yuuta is typically a gentle giant who dutifully fulfills his administrative responsibilities with as little wasted effort as possible. What little off-duty time he has is usually spent reading, unless he is enduring one of the Yama family's mandatory group physical training sessions.

    Zanpakutō:
    Yuuta's zanpakutō is still in its Asauchi form, looking for all the world like a wakazashi or tanto when held in Yuuta's massive hand. Given that the spirit of the weapon often refuses to even acknowledge his wielder's existence, Yuuta has (obviously) yet to even learn his arrogant zanpakutō's name.

    Shikai: (Not Yet Achieved)
    "Pass judgement, Enma!" Enma becomes a 10 foot long, cast iron kanabō with a white grip. Upon release, Enma can move and strike on its own, even without mental commands. In this form, Enma ignores all resistance to its wielder-based movement. Be it a clash against another weapon, a destructive energy attack, or even the planet itself... -Enma's Shikai form literally cannot be hindered.

    Bankai: (Not Yet Achieved)


    Zanpakutō Spirit:
    Enma is a massive, crowned, white-haired oni that sports either a cast iron kanabō or a brush and tome when he is seen. His white robes seem to highlight his angry, bulging eyes while his fiercely red skin invokes the image of glowing embers.

    Inner World:
    The mindscape where Enma resides is a strangely serene palace/temple that dominates the peak of an endlessly tall mountain that is otherwise a blazing inferno.

    Zankensoki:

    Hakuda: Unusual enough for a member of the Kido Corp, Yuuta is an expert in general unarmed combat and a seasoned practitioner in the art of Shunko. His approach to hand-to-hand combat defaults to a defensive bias, with a heavy emphasis on counters and grappling.

    Hohō: Yuuta is not, by any means, light on his feet. He has even been said to not even have the mobility of a severely pregnant yak. Yuuta's use of Shunpo is typically limited to commuting long distances along straight paths. This deficiency in mobility cripples the effectiveness of his use of the Hanki technique against quick attacks, barely reducing their potency rather than negating the blows altogether.

    Kido: As the current leader of the Kido Corps, Yuuta has repeatedly proven himself to be an exceedingly potent practitioner of the demon arts. As far as anyone is aware, save for Sayuri Yamamoto, only forbidden spells are currently beyond his ability.

    Zanjutsu: Yuuta is a competent, but otherwise unremarkable, practitioner of this basic Shinigami martial art.



    The Count: Quincy Ancestor, Bount Prototype, and Hollow-Tainted Scholar

    Spoiler

    Artistic inspiration:
    Spoiler
    Show


    Reiatsu: Navy
    Height: 6'0''
    Age: Ancient
    General Theme: Whisper Of The Apocalypse
    Climatic Battle: Segunda Etapa

    Appearance:
    The Count seems to be somewhere in his early middle-ages. His near-black auburn hair runs smoothly down to his shoulders and is matched by a mustache-free anchor of facial hair. Thanks to genetic chimerism, his eyes shift from a dark blue to a deep violet, depending on the lighting of his surroundings. While his clothing may vary in style, The Count's garb is ALWAYS painfully expensive and tailor-made. Of course, given the popularity of the 'Gothic Aristocrat' fashion sub-genre in Japan, The Count has most recently taken to dressing himself in a manner far more familiar to him.

    History:
    The Count is old, seemingly impossibly so. Beginning his life as an early-European precursor to the Quincy, combating Hollows and other such threats to humanity, he found himself obsessed with his own mortality in his youth (or rather, with the idea of obtaining the means through which he may cheat it). Eventually, having studied (and experimented upon) Hollows for years in order to obtain the secret to their 'immortality', the ambitious Count finally took the irrevocably bold step of subjecting himself to an experimental ritual. This pivotal event granted him his much sought-after immortality, as well as union with an unnamed Doll and a Hollow mask, but left him mentally wracked as two new personalities begun to fight him for dominance. Centuries of experimentation have passed and, despite his founding of pure Bount and Quincy 'races', The Count has still yet to rid himself of the two other members of his soul-bound gestalt. When manifested, his fanged mask only obscures the area between his upper lip and eyebrows.

    Powers:
    The first thing The Count lost, upon initiating his metamorphosis, was the Quincy ability to externally manipulate Reiryoku in order to manifest his bow and arrows. In that power's place, however, he acquired a variety of unexpected abilities both with (and without) his mask:

    <Masquerade> Unlike other Hollow-tainted souls, the Count cannot fire Bala or Cero, nor can he open a Garganta without the aid of equipment. He is also devoid of a Resurrección, and his Pesquisa only functions by feeding from the Reiatsu of others. What he does get, however, is a potent Hierro and the fangs of his mask gain a variant of the typical Hollow 'Acid Touch' that actually 'infects' spiritually aware mortals with The Count's own Reiryoku. If a spiritually aware victim of his masked bite is weakened enough before the bite's 'venom' heals, it may force them to transform into a Quincy or Hollow variant. If the victim is already a Quincy, they may turn into a Bount or some variant of Hollow instead.

    <Obfuscation> With but a thought, The Count can physically fade into the ambient energy of his immediate environment so completely that he becomes imperceptible and highly resistant to non-physical abilities. Even when the full effects of this power are not engaged The Count's spiritual signature matches that of his environment, making him incredibly difficult to track down. Unfortunately, the price of this anonymity is the inability to damage his surroundings as he effectively melds into it.

    <Obfuscation>(Mask) Upon donning his mask, The Count not only loses this power's ability to conceal, but the Hollow taint converts the melding effect into a vacuous one that can be detected over great distances. When both Obfuscation, and his mask, are active The Count's presence registers as a spirit particle black hole. In addition to retaining his protection against the immaterial, The Count now even gains sustenance and power from such effects. Now, rather than hiding himself within his surroundings, The Count consumes the very essence if it.

    <Entrancement> Even The Count's dedicated gaze has a striking effect on others. Those that find themselves the focus of The Count's attention quickly find that his presence feels both comforting and disarmingly familiar. The effect of The Count's gaze is immediately broken by overtly threatening actions.

    <Entrancement>(Mask) While his mask is active, the potency of The Count's gaze intensifies to the point that he acquires enough of an emotional link to the target of his focus that he effectively maintains short-term precognition and surface thought telepathy in regards to them, even when the lesser effect is broken in combat.

    Capabilities:

    Master Swordsmanship Specialist: To the best of his knowledge, The Count is the single oldest 'living' entity on Earth. This assumed peerless experience (reinforced by the loss of his ranged combat capabilities), has honed The Count's skill with the Seele Schneider to literal perfection.

    Master Hand-to-Hand Combatant: The Count has had access to Hierro for centuries and, as such, had ample time to learn how to wed various martial arts and the aforementioned armor into a single, beautifully fatal art form.

    Master Strategist & Tactician: With age, comes experience. Generations of participation in wars, in conjunction with an untold number of years worth of hunting/fighting Hollows, have left The Count with enough martial insight to humble any of the great military minds throughout history.

    Immense Durability, Endurance, Speed, and Strength: Without the ability to manifest his significant spiritual potency externally, all of that power is channeled exclusively into augmenting The Count's own physical traits.
