    Kina has no close family?!

    I think that if Mayumi caught wind of that, she would insist that Kina live with her, or at least on checking up on her every now and again. Mayumi knows that she is a Quincy, due to her Reiatsu, so she's already considering contacting Kina, but if she ever learns that Kina's parents are gone, nothing and no one would keep her from helping the girl. It would be pretty adorable, actually.

    Kina has no close family, meaning she has no family with which she has a close sense of connection. She's living with legal guardians, specifically an aunt, but she has no emotional ties to her. She doesn't know her parents (this is a plot point to maybe be expanded upon somewhat), but they are alive at the moment.

    There's a difference between having family and having close family, in my opinion, and Kina is lacking in close family while having family in spades.

    Also, Kina only barely detects as a Quincy, if at all; it's how she manages to fit in with the other Mediums. I was unaware that Quincy even had special reiatsu, as no one has ever mentioned being able to tell someone was a Quincy without first observing their abilities. So I'm doubtful "Quincy" is a detectable quality when compared to "Medium."

    I think an older Quincy recognizing a younger one is more a case of "it takes one to know one" than special reiatsu. Again, if Kina's and Mayumi's families have lived in the same area for a time, they'd likely know each other through more mundane ways. Plus, Kina carries a Quincy cross with her - Mayumi could've picked her up that way.

    I actually think Quincies would register much weaker than they really are in comparison to other spiritual creatures. That's because nature of their powers is vastly different - unlike Shinigami and Hollow powers, Quincy powers don't come from within, they're gathered from their surroundings. There's no reason Quincy would give out reiatsu at all when not manifesting his or her powers.

    Was it so in canon? If it wasn't, there's no reason for them to be undetectable. Bounts are, effectively, a cross between Shinigami and Hollows, so they should be detectable.

    EDIT: not to mention, since Bounts still have physical bodies yet still don't grow old and actually regenerate when well-fed, I'd say they're more detectable, since ordinary mortals can single them out. Commence the witch hunt!

    Since Enclave is gone and Joakim Morris will never enter play, I suddenly feel I have room for one character more.

    I'm thinking of very low-ranked member of SWORD, sent to keep tabs on the school - taking over the now vacant janitor's post, since no-one else seems interested in it. Of course, having co-workers wouldn't hurt.

    Personality: He is very friendly, but not the bravest of kids. He tends to run away from most dangers, unless someon even weaker then him is in trouble. He can be fairly emotional at time, even to a silly level, and is also VERY immature and childish. Especially when it comes to his humor.

    History: Shiro lived a fairly average death, up until the day he died in a fire.


    Ok, I feel like I need to add more, but I need help figuring out what. I mean he doesn't have powers or anything so...

    How high do SWORD agent numbers go? I'm thinking fourty-something, or even early hundreds.

    I thought that I recalled something from canon, something that Uryu said, about Quincies being just a shade different from ordinary humans, since their reiatsu naturally attracted other reiatsu. I could well be wrong, but that's what I was going on. But it could also just be seeing her cross, or knowing her family.

    And I think that I'll keep her contact with the other Quincies to a fair minimum until she notices that they're also fighting the spiritual creatures in Phoenix Town, at which point she'll probably offer to train them. Would that work for everyone?

    EDIT: Strawberry, I need to wait for Terry's response to see if the spiritual ice from Karite's Bankai is still there or not, and then I need to ask Callos if Auset will still be there if the pillar still is. So, it may be a bit before we can get to the actual investigation.

    Remember that whole thing about Karite completely trashing his Zanpakuto? Due to it fading, the ice fades.

    Random side note: Viatrix has probably gone to several different business schools to avoid suspicion for having a business degree that is like 30 years old when she only looks 16.

    And she probably doesn't even exclusively deal in spiritual wares, it's likely she plays the stock market a fair bit, too. Given she's had 100 years (not counting the first 22 as she would probably be a bit young still) to amass wealth, she's probably Bill Gates-rich.

    New character time!
    Mihail Yashin

    Age: 25
    Gender: Male
    Height: 6'1"
    Weight: 176 lbs.
    Eyes: Green
    Hair: Dark brown
    Skin: Pale
    Nickname: "Bas Celik" ["Real Steel"]
    Rank: SWORD Correspondent

    Appearance:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Mihail sticks out in japanese crowds like a sore thumb. Nothing shouts "Gaijin!" louder than being taller than most everybody and pale as paper, and his relative ignorance of many japanese sensibilities doesn't do much to help. While it's clear he can't be that old from his smooth skin, people generally estimate him to be notably older than he really is.

    Mihail is muscular and generally of heavy build, has large and rugged hands, and gaunt, masculine facial features. His lips are always squeezed tight and slightly downturned, and his eyes wide open and unblinking. If he has another expression, it is not known to man. His body language is stiff and forceful - he's the kind of person who always walks in a straight line, expecting others to have good sense to move out of the way before he just brushes them aside. It's pretty much impossible to get any reading of what he thinks or feels if Mihail himself doesn't take effort to make it clear.

    His voice is stern and demands attention - something that effects young women the most, curiously. His speech tends to be terse due to him being unsure of his Japanese - he's more wordy in other languages.

    If you ever have (mis)fortune of watching Mihail's bare chest, you might notice extensive scarring across the left side of his torso, as well as a metal plate with few light diodes over where his heart should be - this is because Mihail's real heart has been replaced with an artificial, metallic one.


    Personality:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Mihail is as stoic as his appearance suggests. From love and happiness to sorrow and pain, his feelings are subdued and not something he displays openly. It's easy to mistake his behaviour for contempt, but he generally reserves such feelings for his superiors.

    He holds no great commitment to SWORD and their cause, considering them arrogant in their ambition - he's, simply put, in for the money. He gets money for sending them his observations of the spiritual world, and that's perfectly fine with him. He sees their resources as an opportunity to benefit his studies of the occult and martial arts, as well as to seek his own path of spiritual development.

    There are two major undercurrents to his personality: first, even when he was young and weak, he felt he had born to wrong place and time. He considers himself a warrior first and foremost, and finds it frustrating he only found the chance to further himself on that path after he was already an adult. He yearns for a chance to test his skills in real battle.

    Second, he feels detached from and dead to the world. He has no close friends, and part of him believes he should have died in the accident few years back. World of the living holds nothing to him - this is why he hopes to find his place in dealings with the dead.


    History:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Mihail was born in Russia to a Serbian mother. He barely had time to learn the language, though, since early in his childhood his family emigrated to Finland. His parents always teetered on the brink of poverty, but it didn't really reflect badly on him. Much more influential was his time in school - as he and his friends grew older, they began bullying him for being a "ryssä", and he was very hurt by being ostracised so. When it became clear violence would only alienate him further from them... he learned to just stay put. In time, the bullies stopped, because where was the fun of prodding the small weakling who didn't even flinch?

    During his teenage years, Mihail took to practicing Karate and Judo, as well as weight-lifting. He graduated from primary school with good scores all around, and was expected to continue to high school, but instead he opted to go to a vocational insitute, ignoring coaxing from both his parents and teachers. He graduated with a degree in HVAC technology. Like most male citizens of Finland, he went through military conscription, coming out of the army as a NCO with the rank of sergeant. After that, he spend some time doing odd jobs and raising funds, before leaving abroad.

    Walking the earth often caused him more trouble than it was worth, and took him to strangest of places, most notably Transylvania, Romania. It was there where he first met a SWORD member, communing with spirits; they were surprised when Mihail displayed ability to see and recognize them. After meeting some more people from their organization, this lead to Mihail's collaboration with SWORD - they made a contract that ensured him insurance benefits and financial wellfare in exchange of his astute observations of the ghostly realm.

    Three years back, Mihail had the misfortune of being involved in a bank robbery. He was shot to the chest, causing extensive damage to his heart. SWORD, reluctant to lose a valuable informant, finance a cutting-edge artificial heart for him. In only a year, Mihail recovered, and resumed his martial training with greater enthusiasm than ever before.

    Mihail long dreamed about travelling to Japan and Okinawa, home craddles of the arts he had practiced so much, and during his recovery he studied the language extensively in the case that dream would ever come true. One year back, sponsoring from SWORD finally made this possible. Recently, he was requested to move into Phoenix Town, which had become of great interest to SWORD. He was more than happy to comply. From newspapers, he's picked up that the town school is missing a janitor, and is keen to apply for the job.

    Mihail has seen spirits from age of four. However, he's never had to fight a Hollow himself - psychopoms of the sparsely-populated North were not as overworked as their japanese counterparts. He has seen and met Quincies and Shinigami alike, and can recognize them with moderate ease. Due to his greater interest in conventional spirituality, one could say he's more knowledgeable of them than many higher ranking SWORD associates.


    Conventional skills:

    Spoiler
    Show
    • Military training; Mihail has basic firearm proficiency, first aid and navigation skills, and leadership training. He can also drive a tank, but how likely that's going to come up?
    • Extensive Martial Arts training; Mihail has black belt in three martial arts and has dabbled in several more. He is physically in peak condition and his reflexes are well-honed. In overall combat ability, he probably surpasses some Unseated Shinigami.
    • Skilled craftsman; Mihail is a proficient welder, solder, smith and a mechanic. If there's something wrong with say, school air conditioning, electricity, or your car, he can fix it.
    • Keen eye for detail; Mihail knows where you put those keys. He saw where you put that secret letter, and no, she isn't going to date with you. Your hair is not really red, you dye it. He's someone you can depend to have an answer, and at the same time, you really shouldn't lie to him - he'll know.
    • Multi-lingual; Mihail can read and write Finnish, English and Russian. He understands spoken Japanese and Romanian well, but doesn't trust his vocabulary to speak much himself. He's not very good at writing or reading Kanji, even though he's passed official language tests; he usually has a dictionary with him.
    • Folklorist & Occultist; as if his physical training didn't leave him with little enough time to socialize, Mihail has devoted those hours to studying various mythologies, religions and occult beliefs. He's remarkably knowledgeable for a layman, and eager to draw parallels between old tales and reality of spirits.


    Tools:

    Mihail has no access whatsoever to SWORD resources besides money, and holds none of their spiritual technology with him.


    Spiritual Abilities:
    Spoiler
    Show

    Piercing sight: to call Mihail spiritually aware would be an understatement. He can see all sorts of spiritual creatures plain as day, and what's more, he can focus to shut off ordinary, physical objects from his sight to discern without fail which things are spiritual and which are not. He can even see things made of or containing Reishi through walls within 350 feet.

    This ability has nothing to do with detecting Reiatsu, and everything to do with spiritual particles being visible in a different way than normal ones. As such, abilities that hide or block Reiatsu do nothing to curb this ability, unless they otherwise cause the user to be hidden or invisible (like Kyokko). Of course, Mihail's normal field of vision limits this ability.

    Reiryoku: Mihail does not give out Reiatsu, and cannot be discerned from ordinary mortals with Reiatsu detection. As such, he does not attract Hollows either. However, any spiritually aware creature touching him physically can tell a great amount of Reiryoku is building up within him - this makes him burning cold to touch for such creatures.


    Future plans:

    Spoiler
    Show
    If you didn't guess it already, Mihail will hollowfy sometime during the plot. When introduced, he supposed to be lagging behind on the power curve a bit, and eventually rise to the level of other shool staff members.

    I don't have his full abilities worked out yet, but they will be based on the myth of Bas Celik, a creature with steel wings who achieved immortality by hiding its heart on a mountain, inside an egg, inside a bird, inside heart of a fox, who is weakened when deprived of water.

    He will probably serve as a minor antagonist towards the students.

    Depending if she lived in America for a while, she could've raised hell during Prohibition.

    That's like the endgame for rich.

    I suppose that's fair! Not saying she's perfect, but she's probably pretty damn well off nonetheless (after all, she is possibly about to make nearly ¥250m on one trade).

    Well, if he did...they should probably just detect as simply "Mediums." Because otherwise the Shinigami should have found most of them by now. I imagine at least some of those would want to..."eliminate the threat," if not by convincing them of their wrongs then at least by controlling their use of their abilities.

    That being said, I've imagined Kina's family as basically one of the "Head Quincy" families in Japan. At the very least, they are or were at some point among the most respected Quincy families in the region; Kina's grandfather ran his own "Quincy Dojo" and personally trained several Quincy, and he was prominent enough that having a son who chose not to pursue Quincy training and a granddaughter who was a failure was socially crippling.

    Well, it may well be true that Quincies are undetectable by means of reiatsu, but even if that's true, Quincies probably have a method of picking each other out of a crowd that Shinigami can't use or don't know about. Perhaps a sort of Pesquisa-like ability by which Quincies send out spirit particles that they can track and see if those are attracted to people. If they are, then there's a Quincy. And if not, then no Quincy.

    And as for her family being one of the head Quincy families, then they'd definitely know the Yamashiro, since they're the main technological family. In fact, the two would probably be on very good terms, given the mutual benefit of Quincy interaction. So, perhaps Mayumi could check up on Kina at some point, perhaps after school some day?
