|Subject Post 1Subject: Inigo Olivier [4-5; Priam 4-2+] Sun Aug 25, 2013 8:19 pm|| |
Name: Inigo Olivier
Appearance Age: About Seventeen
Affiliation/Rank: Gotei 13
In many ways, Inigo is a rather hopeless man, however not in a negative way. He is primarily hopeless in his pursuit of women, to a very strong degree. He cannot pass up the opportunity to shamelessly hit on a woman should one even simply pass by him. Even if they are higher ranked than him in the Gotei 13, or are just much stronger than him, Inigo will still likely hit on them. He usually resorts to cheesy one-liners or really bad pickup lines, which almost always resorts in either a flat out denial, or even a punch to the face should his pickup line be bad enough. This is because many of his lines happen to be horribly raunchy, as he doesn't seem to really care about lines people may draw when it comes to jokes.
Another major aspect of Inigo's personality is his wanting to be a hero. He believes the only real goal a person, or just him, needs is the objective of becoming a hero. This is a pretty broad term, but Inigo believes being a hero is being able to protect people who need protection, and just overall saving the world. Despite how unlikely it is for him to ever be in a situation like that, Inigo still strives towards it. He is very strict about what being a hero is, and if people ever settle for less or have different definitions, he is actually likely to get pretty angry or upset about it. His usually results in him yelling "I'll be a TRUE hero!", and then either stomping off or if he is in a fight, battling with new found ferocity. Likely his most commonly said word, the term "hero" truly holds special meaning in his heart.
Inigo has a very strong sense of right and wrong and refuses to accept evil in any form. He thinks "necessary evil" is ridiculous, and that a real hero saves everyone. This is the main driving force behind him having joined the Gotei Thirteen, as he believes he'll get many chances to protect people and do what's right by being a part of the organization. It could be said this is a form of naivety due to him not understanding that not everyone can always be saved and that sometimes there are necessary evils in this world, but he doesn't see it that way. He just sees it as the moral compass of, guess what, a 'hero', and that he'll always do whatever he can to fight evil and wrongdoings in the world to the point of willingly putting his life on the line to help others.
Inigo is not a very smart man. It's not that he's necessarily stupid so much as he just doesn't understand certain things at first, and may seem to draw a blank when asked things. Actually, he's so forgetful sometimes he forgets something someone had said just moments before. This isn't a brain default so much as it is just empty mindedness. He also tends to ask for a simpler explanation, though even when people DO give simpler explanations, he still sometimes ends up confused. This can bite him in the rear when he is trying to learn a new technique or ability. However, in combat itself Inigo happens to be a natural. He can quickly overcome an opponent's ability or power, and after witnessing an ability only a few times he can come up with a good counter or just get used to it.

Inigo is one of the many Shinigami, pluses, and other spirits who cannot remember his life as a mortal human/living being. He has no idea what his life was like growing up on Earth, and only remembers being a young child in one of the moderately numbered Rukongai districts. He grew up as a spirit in a pretty average household with nothing special in particular standing out, though he did have an older brother who ended up becoming a shinigami in the ranks of the Gotei. This is all he can remember from his much younger days. He does, however, remember some life changing decisions very clearly.
When Inigo was only twenty or so years old as a spirit, he decided he wanted to become a shinigami in order to fight crime, darkness, and evil. It was about this time that he began to develop his major objective: Becoming a True Hero. However, he realized he knew absolutely nothing about being a shinigami except for the absolute basics, such as working to cleanse souls in the human realm. Seeking to actually become a shinigami and learn more about their ways, he had himself enrolled into the Shino Academy in order to advance himself. However, he quickly began to understand that being a shinigami is actually pretty difficult, and almost immediately began falling behind in his classes. Not being very intelligent from the getgo, Inigo had much difficulty throughout his years in the Shino Academy, and nearly had to stay behind for an entire extra year. Barely skidding by, Inigo was able to graduate from the academy in about six years, which was the average amount of time students were there.
After graduating from the spiritual arts academy, Inigo initially applied to join the eleventh division in the Gotei Thirteen. He did this because he himself was a swordsmanship and power specialist, so in theory he would fit very well in the division. However, he only stayed with this division for a few months as he almost immediately realized just how out of place he was there. He ended being allowed to transfer to the sixth division, where he stayed for quite some time, however he never rose above the rank of an unseated shinigami. After nearly four years of service, Inigo was finally offered a promotion, however he would have to leave his division in order to accept it. Believing himself to finally being on the path towards becoming a hero, Inigo accepted the promotion and transfer to the tenth division, which is where he currently resides.
Reiatsu Color: Bright Blue
Zanpakutô Spirit Name: Yūhi (Setting Sun)
Zanpakutô Spirit Appearance:
Sealed Zanpakutô Apperance :
Sealed Zanpakutô Abilities:
Strength: Inigo's best physical trait is physical strength, however he isn't super powerful. Instead, he can simply pack a punch with his sword swing if he really tries, especially when he wields his Zanpakutō with both hands in order to essentially double his swing strength. He's strong enough to be able to go toe-to-toe with a weak Hollow with physical strength alone.
Speed: Inigo is not a very fast fighter, and has difficulty keeping up with stronger opponents. He tends to rely on strength instead of speed for this very reason, especially since he only has a light grasp on the use of shunpo and other basic speed related techniques.
Swordsmanship: Inigo is relatively skilled with the blade, especially since it's the only weapon he has ever been trained in, and can fight pretty well in sword fights. By utilizing his physical prowess, Inigo tends to go for heavy sword swings in order to either disarm an opponent or to stagger them and gain the advantage so as to move in and strike again.
Hero's Flame: Currently, Inigo only has the ability to coat his Zanpakutō in flames, and only when under emotional or physical duress. He can't usually just force it without either of these prerequisites, making his fire ability unreliable in combat. However, his flames are special because they are a brilliant azure in color and possess a special characteristic. A fourth of the damage this fire inflicts upon enemies can be used to heal Inigo's wounds. This means if he causes a four inch injury on his opponent, he can heal up to an injury the size of an inch, and so on so forth. However, the fire is difficult to maintain and as stated previously, cannot usually be summoned without it being forced physically or emotionally.

Alter Ego: Priam
Overview: Priam is essentially an alter ego of Inigo, though with a few differences between this specific case and actual multi-personality disorder. Instead of just being a second personality, Priam is like an entirely different person. He has a different appearance, mindset, and has different combat capabilities. It could be said he is similar to a Ziamichi spirit in this way, however he isn't actually a separate entity. To be more exact, he is essentially the 'potential' of Inigo in physical form. He represents repressed potential that when it surges out, forces Inigo's body and mind to be replaced by that of Priam's. It is in this sense that not only is he a more mature version of Inigo emotionally, mentally, and physically, he is also much more powerful than his counterpart. Not only does Inigo have absolutely no control over when he turns into this form, he also has no control over the form in general and because of his current level of strength, essentially goes unconscious when Priam is in control. No matter what stage of release Inigo is in, his Zanpakutō will always change to the form of the golden blade Priam wields. Also, due to the strain on his body, Inigo can only stay in the form of Priam for one to two posts so far. It should also be noted that Inigo doesn't remember what takes place when Priam is in control.
Priam is essentially a more mature and/or aged Inigo in every aspect, including personality. However, there are quite a few things that don't seem to be all that different at all between the two. First and foremost is his absolute love of women. Priam, like Inigo, will go out of his way to hit on or impress women in as many ways as possible, to a fault. However, unlike Inigo who still appears pretty young and immature, Priam has the body of a full grown man, and as such usually relies on it like a crutch when trying to impress women, to the point of seeming vain. He is more likely to point out his "guns" than to do anything actually even mildly impressive for a woman.
Priam isn't all that smart either, however he could be considered a battle master as he is a combat genius and can quickly adapt to essentially any situation with very little trouble. Even confusing and intricate abilities can usually be countered by Priam, and as such he is very intelligent when it comes to fighting. However it's outside fighting that causes difficulty for him. Priam is as hopeless as Inigo when it comes to remembering things, even if they have already been pointed out to him multiple times, which can result in friends and allies quickly losing their temper with him. One difference in this aspect between Priam and Inigo is that while Inigo could at least find his way to places, Priam is completely hopeless when it comes to travelling. If he is told to go left, or he has a map with arrows that point left, he is likely to go right. This is to such a degree that he has even been known to get lost in straight hallways by turning around, even if he is explicitly told to only go straight. When people point this out to him, he usually gets angry at them and insults the directions, not the fact that he can't for some reason follow them.
A major difference between Priam and Inigo is how Priam perceives and defines the word 'hero'. While Inigo sees heroes as very powerful saint-like people who protect the world from devastation on a daily basis, Priam sees a hero as anybody who does something good without seeking a reward. In this sense, Priam sees a man who buys a can of cat food for a stray cat as a 'hero' in the same way he sees a man who stops planetary destruction as a 'hero'. In this way, he is much less demanding about people fighting to protect the world. Unlike Inigo though, who mainly worries just about striving towards becoming a hero, Priam has a second primary driving force: becoming the strongest there ever was. He truly wishes to become the ultimate fighter, which reflects the fact that he represents Inigo's true potential as a warrior. Priam wants to continuously fight stronger and stronger opponents whenever possible.
Sealed Powers and Abilities:
Strength: Priam is much more powerful than Inigo, and can swing Yūhi with immense strength compared to his counterpart. He is easily capable of crushing strong barriers with a simple sword swing, and this only when he wields his Zanpakutō with a single hand. When using a second hand as well, very little can stop the force with which Priam swings his Zanpakutō, and he can catch even very powerful opponents off guard with his sheer power. He has been known to be able to tear apart entire buildings with basic level swings of his large sword, and as such is to be feared in close quarters combat. Even without his Zanpakutō, Priam can launch devastating flurries of punching and kicking combinations capable of tearing away even pretty powerful armor and defenses/barriers/shields.
Speed: Priam is able to move at startling quick speeds, and can easily catch opponents by surprise and/or off guard with his sheer speed. He is capable of swinging his Zanpakutō at intense speeds, thus increasing the overall damage output from his attacks, and can also move his entire body at a quick pace. Combining his speed and strength allows him to perform devastating combinations and strings of attacks, and when his special Zanpakutō ability is considered, he can be a very dangerous opponent indeed in close quarters combat. Able to cross long distances in short amounts of time, Priam is a capable fighter even against fast moving opponents and targets.
Durability: Priam can also take quite a bit of punishment from enemy attacks. Whether it be energy or physical attacks/abilities, Priam can brush off much of the damage that might normally be inflicted upon fighters. It takes a pretty large amount of force to cause damage to this fighter, allowing him to stay in combat for extended periods of time (assuming, of course, he doesn't automatically switch back to Inigo during the course of combat. Priam also possesses a large amount of endurance, which when coupled with his overall spirit and fortitude, makes him a nightmare for opponents who cannot maintain themselves in combat for very long.
Swordsmanship: Due to being an essentially more mature version of Inigo both physically and mentally, Priam also happens to be a much more skillful swordsman in pretty much all aspects. His increased speed allows him to perform certain techniques Inigo normally couldn't, and the same goes for techniques reliant on higher levels of strength and/or reflexes. He is easily capable of fighting swordsman on very high levels, and as such is an opponent to be feared in pure fights of skill. Also, despite the unruly size and shape of Yūhi while Priam is in control, he is able to use the Zanpakutō as well as anybody could use a much simpler weapon like a katana.
Hero's Flame: Priam's sealed Hero's Flame ability also happens to be much more powerful and versatile than Inigo's in a multitude of ways. First off, Priam can ignite his Zanpakutō at will, and can even do more than that. If he so chooses, Priam can unleash a barrage of fireballs against his designated targets, or can send out a large wave of the blue fire to devastating effect in order to tear apart opponents and the environment. His blue flames also happen to be much hotter than Inigo's, able to cause much more heat-related damage than its more immature counterpart. Finally, instead of healing only a fourth of the damage inflicted on opponents, Priam's Hero's Flame can heal up to a third, which is a pretty big increase from the weaker form.
