Subject Post 1Subject: Aiko Kyoraku [APPROVED 0-4+] Tue Feb 18, 2014 10:15 pm
- Name: Aiko Kyoraku - Titles: Master of The Realms, First Lady of the First Division - Gender: Female - Appearance Age: 25 - Age: 700 - Eye Color: Light Blue - Height: 5'9 ft - Weight: 135 lbs - Breast Size: 36DD - Hip Size: 93 cm - Affiliation/Rank: 0 Division/Soul King, Formerly Gotei 13
- Appearance Description:
Often being judged primarily by her looks, Aiko is not blind to the effects her physique has on others. In part, she has no one to blame but herself given her choice in outfit and behavior. However, she likely never would. Though she knows she is not perfect, her choices are hers, and regret has never been common. Standing at a height of 5'9 ft and weighing in at 135 lbs, Aiko is a lady of relative height. For the most part, throughout her life, she was just somewhat taller than most woman she met, even more so than some man. However, she is not a very tall woman by any stretch, as given most standard limitations in size she would actually fall in as being rather average on both. Luckily, she's never wanted to be any taller or any shorter, nor has wanted for her breasts to be any smaller or any bigger. Her father was a man who loved woman, and that was a known fact. Though stemming more out of curiosity than a likely feeling of endearment for the sex, her mother did as well. Catching up on some of their habits, Aiko managed to develop a keen interest in the bodies of most people, specially on her own. Though her personality may drive her to create rivalries with others, to lower her own self esteem in hopes of future development and grandeur, she knows better. She is a beautiful woman, and regardless of what her body offers or lacks, she is and will always be equally contempt with it.
Her skin tone was just the right mix in between her parents. Though many might be quick to assume she has a rather light complexion, it is only accentuated by the light tonalities of the garments she wears. Assuming she has a light complexion however is not entirely far off from the truth, but it would be an equally plausible mistake to make. Aiko's skin has a very subtle olive-like, medium complexion to it. Though saying she has a dark complexity would be quite far from the truth, she is just tanned enough to attain that middle ground in between light and dark complexion with slight tendencies of leaning towards the lighter side.
For her size, her gender, and her body, Aiko has rather large feet. They are not so big as to be largely disproportionate, but they are definitely of dimensions exceeding what other ladies with similar measurements as her would usually half. Though her calf seem to be just about on par to what one would expect of her dimensions and looks, her thighs and her hips are quite large. Her thighs are thick enough to cause eyes to turn nearly every time she passes someone by. It is among her best features. The very low-riding skirt, easily about three inches or more below her belly button, do little to cover more than extremely necessary areas. The skirt stops so high up her thigh that it is barely able to cover the contours of her body. Rushed and sudden movements, and sometimes even subtle turns or other changes in direction are enough to allow the skirt to ride merely half an inch higher, easily showing portions of her butt and equal amounts of her white panties. Though she enjoys the attention this causes, she does so not completely out of being lewd or causing looks of nervousness. She loves bodies in general, and growing up with her mother she expresses herself how she sees fit, and doing so seems to make her happy, even if some may object to her tastes.
Her top, of a similarly soft and gentle material like her skirt, manages to cover just a bit more than the latter, albeit not completely managing that task either. Unlike her skirt, her top only showcases the dark blue seen in her skirt in the stripes of the sleeves and the collared top that comes down and over the mustard yellow and golden neckerchief. For the most part however, the top is predominantly white, adding on to the belief that her skin tone might actually be somewhat lighter than it truly is. Aiko also nearly always wears a set of red gloves, though she has a few reasons for doing so. Aside from just liking the way they look and feel on her hands, they are also her Zanpakutō. On their sealed form, Aiko's Zanpakutō takes on the form of red gloves. The prospect might seem some what odd and thus unorthodox to some, those who truly know and understand her, her past, and her parents may find out that such discovery is truly not a surprise at all. Like her personality, her abilities, her looks, and her behavior, Aiko is quite the pandora's box with a wide array of unexpected irrationality that usually help more to entertain than to trouble.
As another of her highly coveted and commented features, Aiko's eyes are a very gentle and dim light shade of blue. Some have compared it to gentle droplets of dew falling from leaf tip to leaf tip during dawn. Others have said her eyes are akin to the calm peaceful waters near the white pearly beaches of the Caribbean Islands in the human world. What most seem to agree on is that her eyes have a soothing nature to them as she is able to ease and calm bewildered and angered spirits with a mere look into her eyes. Though her eyes are quite commented, her most complimented feature is likely her hair. Much like herself, Aiko's hair has a certain odd mix of tonalities. Though at first glance her hair may appear to be a simply dark black, it has enough subtle hints of purple in it that, to some, looking at her hair for prolonged amounts of time may give the sense that her hair is truly purple rather than black. It's never been specified or asked what her true hair color is, as is likely not even Aiko knows herself. However, the subtle mixture, and the lack of knowledge in something so trivial and personal to her, makes it just the more worth it not knowing. Saying she has long hair would be quite the understatement. Easily reaching by the back of her knees and on occasions just an inch or so lower, Aiko is known for having one of the longest lengths of hair in Soul Society.
- Appearance Picture:
Independent & Free Spirit: Aiko is unlike most people a Shinigami might meet, and likely, very different from any women her husband has met. She is a basket with a delicate and unique assortment of personalities. Though she may have her serious and fierce moments such as those displayed on a battle, she also possesses rather tender and gentle qualities that make her who she is. Among the many reasons she is loved and treasured by her husband is her unique personality. She is one of the very rare, if not the only person with whom he cannot so easily notice or analyze her behavioral tendencies. Though reading what's on her mind according to her behavior is not such a grueling task for him, knowing exactly how she will react to new situations is mostly impossible as it is her unorthodox way of handling herself in and out of the battlefield that makes and enhances her qualities and the growing interest Tsubasa has in her. For the most part, she can be found in the division, either helping and guiding other members or speaking and tending to her husband. On some other occasions she may be found speaking to other Captains or their subordinates to foster better relationships among the divisions. On the rare chances she has alone to do as she please, her free spirit takes sovereignty over her. When she can, she travels to the world of the living. Being around people there is no longer her main source of attention as she has enough interaction with those in Soul Society, though is not beyond her to occasional stare at people, up from skyscrapers, as they walk and go about their daily lives. Most often, she tends to like to visit river beds, the mouth of large fast flowing rivers, or the entrance to underwater caves or far off islands. She seems to be taken by the desolate, peaceful nature of the world at its most unique and simple. It is not that she seeks loneliness or likes to be alone. She just, like many people, like a sort of balance in their live. Like most, though helping around and being with husband is bliss, she also enjoys being alone with her own thoughts from time to time.
Flirty & Slutty: It doesn't take a genius to figure out Aiko likes to show off her body. While she may not openly choose to say so, it is hardly necessary. Taking after her mother, her regular outfit not only matches it in design and choice of colors but also in the amount it reveals. Aiko has taken it just a slightly step farther as her outfit reveals just a bit more than her mother's used to. Though everything is well covered for the post part, its easy to see that sudden or rushed movements can show areas of her butt and the occasional subtle pantie shot as well as hint at the nearly visible contours of her breasts. Like many of her mannerisms, she takes after her mother. She doesn't mind, and even prefers showing a bit of skin, as producing blushes and giggles on the passing man seems to amuse her quite a bit. Her slutty choice of clothing should not confuse her with a slut however. Though she enjoys dressing in a rather provocative way, and even occasionally flirting with guys every now and then, she belongs to only one man. Her choice in clothing and dismal interest in flirting has no effect on who she feels attracted to as it will not change. Her heart and her feelings belong to Tsubasa. Her unorthodox and largely random behavior are but reflections of a very convoluted and unique personality.
Low Self-Esteem & Competitive: Although it may not be quite apparent from the way she dresses and the way she behaves, Aiko has a rather low self esteem. It doesn't stem out of any childhood problems or affection deficiencies. She knows she is beautiful. She doesn't need anyone to tell her to be aware of that, though her husband does often make such remarks, and as such, they are gladly welcomed with a smile. It's just a habit of her, and almost natural to tend to find a fault in her figure, even if deep down, she knows she is as close to being an embodiment of beauty as any other women. She is not so superficial as to care for looks alone as she is the one to believe everyone, no matter what they look like on the outside, can potential be a truly beautiful being so long as their heart reflects what their outer appearance might not. However, because of her occasional thoughts of lesser worth, she truly enjoys being complimented. She won't go out of her way to push a compliment as she would hate herself for doing so. She just loves when someone compliments her, specially her body. She always seems to smile brighter whenever her husband flirts with her and comments on her body, or when one of her friends makes a remark on her looks on any given day. She also seems to develop rivals and competition rather easily, and not only on the battlefield. It is mostly directed to people who annoy her or piss her off. Even if the lady is not nearly as well endowed physically as her, Aiko is quick to draw comparisons within her self-conscious and elevate the self worth of the rival to match her owns even if doing so would be highly inaccurate. Though it often serves as a way to gather more rivals and competitors, it doesn't seem to be all bad. It allows her to have enough competition to continue to train and grow into a stronger fighter as well as keep a watchful eye on her figure and continue being a beautiful woman.
Pervert & Curious: It is no secret that Aiko is a bit of a pervert. The fact is more well known with her husband than hopefully with other individuals, but she truly doesn't care either way. Much like her mother, Aiko has a very peculiar definition of what being a pervert is. She can often be found looking into swimsuit and nearly-naked magazines featuring beautiful woman courtesy of her trips to the world of the leaving. She is not confused as to her sexuality, she merely looks into them out of curiosity. Just like her mother responded whenever she was called a pervert, Aiko is one who would likely advocate that her hobbies ad tendencies do not truly make her a pervert. She would rather say she is just highly curious about many things, specially largely bare bodies. While she may well be a pervert on her own right, she is truly a curious individual. Although she is able to keep composure, specially on issues or situations she knows better than to dig into, in most cases, she is likely to ask and go around until the individual has told her the secret or the core of the problem or information. Its almost as if being told something and not getting the whole idea of it would drive her mad throughout the day. And it has. She just loves knowing things. While she would not compare her quest of learning and knowledge to be quite as set and profound as that of her husband or Crystal, the Captain from the 12th division, she is nevertheless quite taken by a lot of things and would rather know something than not.
Love and Deep Emotions: Aiko is wildly known for her very clear and public shows of affection. It is not rare for her to come up behind a friend or someone she is fond of, and sometimes out of a surprise, hug the from behind or mess up their hair. It is not clear to her whether she is able to make friends and relationships with ease or not. Though her outer behavior would lend itself to say so, her mildly conflicting inner emotions do leave her with doubt at times. Nevertheless, she easily and quite often makes display of her emotions, specially with her husband. Though his position is one that garnishes respect and awe from many, he is not the Captain Commander to her, save for situations where lives are at stake and his decisions and actions are needed promptly. In all other occasions, he is merely her husband, and that means a lot to her. Often trying to surprise him with a hug or a kiss whenever his attention has left more serious matters, she is like the pillow in which he may rest on. Being his source of comfort from his rather hectic live, she provides a shoulder on which only he may rest on, and the care and security only Aiko is able to provide him. She is random and silly enough to be able to bring smiles to his expression with her rather strange words and unorthodox actions, yet mature and serious enough to be trusted with secrets her husband would likely mention to no one else. She is his lovable confident on whom he may trust and place his heart on her hands if he so wished to, for hers is already on his.
Critic and Bad Habits: Though it likely stems out of the behavior her mother so easily portrayed during her time as Vice Captain, Aiko seems to have inherited some of it. She's very critical of those who do not follow the rules and is quite to admonish those with outlandish behavior. She makes emphasis on those who slack during their duties and who drink or over socialize during the times when they should be working. She is not one that should be complaining much however, and she knows it. She makes a point not to criticize anyone who makes certain changes to their clothing but that is specifically because she doesn't follow the rules when it comes to the uniform. Her mother wore a schoolgirl's uniform for most of her life after she left the Soul Society, and since she lived and trained with her, Aiko has donned a very similar uniform as well. Stubborn as she is, she will not wear the uniform, always preferring to stick to her clothes instead, and thus does not pester others who wish to deviate. She is not so harsh a critic to be confused with an old woman however. In fact, when her husband is busy with his own duties, she can often be seen inviting the men and women from her division and even others, out to drink and socialize at night. However, she pays close attention to make sure their evenings outing are done in a manner and at a time when they do not conflict with the duties and responsibilities they have. Though the legacy of her mother drives her to stick to the rules and the law and do her best to maintain them, she has also as much of her father in her and thus just loves to drink, talk, laugh, and just merely socialize with her friends and acquaintances.
Calm and Kind Outer Nature & Opposites Within: It is very difficult to make Aiko look flustered and nervous, at least on the exterior. Her eyes always reflect the look of someone who either has seen it or all, or at the very least, expects it all. She takes nearly all situations regardless of severity with the same calm and laid back demeanor. Whether she is in a hurry to finish her work or delivering news of great sadness about the death of a comrade, her calm nature can sometimes be either soothing or infuriating to some. The same is not true inside though. For the most part, Aiko worries rather easily. Though her husband is pretty much the strongest man in Soul Society, she always worries about him, though she finds this as normal behavior of a good wife. Nevertheless, everything seems to set her nervousness off. Being somewhat late on an assignment, delivering sad news of fallen comrades, and facing up to situations that would likely depress her seem to trigger it. Though her outer behavior and mannerisms are those of someone seemingly unshaken by anything, her inner emotions reflect that of a woman who is afraid to act because of the likely ramifications. Her inner fear is quite limited however. it is limited to simple decisions that may become troublesome but have no power over the things that truly matter. If battle was at hand or she was needed to fight to defend her husband or any of her kids or friends, nervousness would go out the window. In a way, she doesn't take herself too seriously for the most part, in what it pertains to her inner emotions but serious enough situations bring out the mature and assertive adult in her.
Cheerful: It is quite common to see Aiko smiling. In fact, some have even said it is difficult to discern many of her emotions as both her happiness and upset moments are veiled by laughter and smiles which makes the line between them quite sketchy. Though on her own time, she barely smiles, whenever she is out and about, most of her words and responses to others involve some form of smile with the occasional giggles after it. While she may not have had the most peaceful of lives, she is thankful for her family and the people she is met. Everyday is kind of a blessing, and though she may chose to mask the occasional sadness with smiles, she finds it quite easy to perform the latter, and everyone seems to enjoy the smiles she gives out.
Sassy and Sarcastic: Though for the most part Aiko is quite kind, she can react in very unexpected ways when pushed. If made to anger or become frustrated with something or someone, she is known to respond or continue on the conversation with rather sassy and sarcastic remarks. Her word choice and tone of voice most often do not entail any secretly or otherwise outwardly shown evil aside from the snarky, almost comical way she behaves. Her rare use of mildly foul language and attempts to use her sarcasm and sassy attitude on others is save for the rare few who upset her beyond belief and thus force on her a behavior she would otherwise not display. In some occasions she has been seen speaking to some of the men she supervises on the division, asking them nicely to perform a certain task expected of them. Though the majority display an innate discipline expected of them, some of the more lazy ones do drive her off the edge. After repeated attempts to get them to do whatever she expects them to do, her subtle and continuous smiles are replaced by a momentary smirk and a fairly strong whack to the back of their head as her tone of voice and word choice reflect the more frightening yet comical side of her. Should the individuals be convinced to do as hey should have from the very beginning, it is quite easy for Aiko to return her tone of voice and her expression to the cheerful state she had originally.
Stubborn: Aiko can be quite stubborn in most situations. Though throughout most of her life her parents were not there for her, she did manage to live a bit of her years with each of them. When she was alone, she had the freedom to do as she pleased and go where she pleased though with certain subtle limitations. When she was with her parents, the prospect of seeing eachother after so long, usually led to quite simple times of ease. There, she was usually allowed to do as she pleased. Aiko had always been a model child and woman, so there was never any chance of her crossing the line or doing something uncalled for. However, as an adult, in the present, its difficult for her to understand and agree to situations and ideas with which she does not understand or agree with. Thus it is not rare to see Aiko give off peculiar looks when certain things are brought up. On most cases however, she will be quick and assertive to make a rebuttal even if her argument is not well supported. However, she is not stubborn to argue for the sake of arguing. For the most part, her beliefs stem out of ideas or concepts she is passionate about.

At the Beginning
Arms outstretched forward, a beautiful baby looked on at two happy parents. On the outside of the room, there was quite a bit of noise. Among curious members of the 8th division, although mostly a large amount of gleeful ladies, all around, there was a festive and joyful vibe. Shunsui and Lisa had had a baby. The news had been a bit troublesome to the Commander. Shunsui's womanizer reputation meant that sooner or later, an event such as that was likely to come upon him. However, most did not quite expect it to be with his lieutenant, although some would say it would have been strange if it had been with anyone else.
Shunsui was known for his occasional escapades, his taste for sake, and specially, women. For the most part, Lisa was always there. She would be the one to beat him into getting sober or try to knock some sense and responsibility into her Captain. On an eventful night, Shunsui had done the impossible. Articulating and presenting a fair enough scenario with a vast number of the ladies from his squad, he was able to appeal to Lisa's more curious nature. After giving into drinks, the night would go on to see the Captain and Lieutenant become drunk beyond belief. In the morning, they had awaken to eachother in bed, naked. Aside from the slaps and the kicks it earned him, both were quite apologetic about the situation, and although flirting was still a recurrent theme, the uneventful event was kept in secrecy, and for the most part forgotten. But not too long. Given a few months, it had become clear that Lisa was pregnant. The news left most quite shocked, including old man Yamamoto, while others, like the Captain of the 12th division were quite happy for the couple.
Shunsui was part of one of the noble houses of Soul Society. His occasional immature behavior aside, he was greatly respected for his power and his wisdom. As such, he was allowed to keep his daughter and raise her in the 8th division. Aiko. That was her name. Initially, Shunsui had come up with a plethora of name, most of which described a hot lady, or a very beautiful woman. With each slap and kick from Lisa following every one of his attempts to name the baby, the two, on a more serious note, agreed on Aiko. She was a lovable child. She was truly loved.
For most, having a child around, specially with the responsibilities those two held would have been a chore. However, they were as best a couple as it got in regards to raising a child. Shunsui hardly did anything anyways and was often found drinking or sleeping. The fact that he had a child now just gave him more excuses to take Aiko with him and slack off under the pretense he was looking after her. He genuinely did though. Although his love for the ladies was strong, there was hardly a girl he cared more for than Aiko. However, occasionally, he would use Aiko as a way to attract and thus flirt with other ladies. He did not seem to enjoy or prologue the practice however, perhaps because of the bruises he sported on the mornings after heated arguments with Lisa about his behavior.
Even as a small kid, Aiko seemed to have a future set out for her. Aside from the prominence and the positions of her parents, even from a young age, she possessed a very powerful reiatsu akin to that of his father and with a feeling that could only be likened to Lisa's. During her younger years, Aiko was presented with a side of Lisa many did not quite know. Quite often, Lisa would sit with Aiko on the garden as the two would read books. In fact, it had become a habit for them to do so and for other members to pass by and giggle to themselves at the endearing scene.
While still very young, she had been sent to the academy, as she was deemed to be too strong to be kept without training regardless of her age. Her time at the academy went well. She excelled in all disciplines although she was specially good at kido. However, that's not to say she wasn't equally great at the others. She was merely young and small and thus, things like zanjutsu would likely not reflect the potential she possessed until she was older and stronger. Upon graduating, it was not strange that she ended up joining the 8th squad. There was no special privileges given, she was just still a young girl and thus needed care from her parents. However, this time, she was in the division as both their daughter and as a shinigami.
Rising through the ranks, the young Aiko wouldn't have looked more than 10, although she was obviously older, yet she was already quite strong. She had been purposely kept out of the group of seated officers even though her spiritual pressure was vastly above that of the ranked seated officers, Not long after, another similarly young girl would join the division, her name was Nanao Ise. From the get go, Nanao and Aiko seemed to get along quite well, almost like siblings. Aiko was more of an older sister, since, albeit not as much, she was a bit older than her in appearance.
The next few years would be some of rather peaceful settings, at least on the exterior. Aiko was growing to be a strong and beautiful young lady at the dawn of her teenage years. Her parents were simply very proud of her. Consequently, there seemed to be trouble arising and thus her parents seemed to be just a bit more busy than usual, but they still saw eachother every day, on the mornings, and before bed at night. Following very troublesome events, the Soul Society saw itself thrown into turmoil. A large number of the citizens in the far reaches of Soul Society, and even some shinigami had disappeared. What was worse, elite members of the 9th division including Captain Muguruma had disappeared and not head from again. After a meeting was adjunct, Yamamoto had personally selected skillful individuals to undergo the search and retrieval of the shinigami in question. Initially, Shunsui had been hesitant. However, Lisa had depended more and more on Nanao lately. Though comparing it with his own power was not fair, the mission did not seem too dangerous, and Lisa was quite capable herself. Volunteering her to join the search, he was surprised when he found her outside the window, eavesdropping on the meeting. Though he scolded her about not listening in on Captain's meetings, she was nevertheless allowed to join the search party.
On that uneventful night, the group of Captains and Lieutenants sent faced off against a hollowfied Kensei, Hiyori, and Machiro. Not long after, the rescue party would be hollowfied by the likes of Aizen, Gin, and Tosen, before the latter were chased off by recently appointed Captain Urahara and Captain of the Kido Corps, Tessai Tsukabishi. Following the staged and misconstrued facts by Aizen, Urahara, Tessai, and the rest of the Captains and Lieutenants involved in the accident were deemed expendable and judge to a fate they did not deserve. Though pleads resonated strongly, specially from the likes of Ukitake and Shunsui, the decisions of the Central 46 were absolute. Had it not been for Yoruichi's intervention, that unjust fate would have indeed awaited them. Departing from eachother, it would be a long time before Shunsui and Lisa would see eachother again. That was not all. Shunsui knew it. Lisa was strong. She, along with the rest would likely be able to fend off for themselves without too much trouble, but that wasn't it. During the dawn of Aiko's teenage years, although Lisa was quite busy with her duties and paperwork, she tried her best to be there for her daughter. The woman that was so commonly seen smacking and hitting Shunsui for his lack of discipline loved spending time with Aiko and wasted no time to do so. On the occasions were Aiko had been out on an assignment, or busy elsewhere helping her dad, in the past, Lisa had even been seen reading to Nanao. It was in part since Nanao was much younger than Aiko, specially more so in terms or appearance, but that was not it. She longed to spend more time with Aiko, and sitting next to Nanao, reading to her, was as close as she got to experiencing that mother feeling she had loved during Aiko's younger years, and still so though a bit less at the time being. Shunsui had heard. He had seen it too. He was a man with a large amount of emotions but who could manage them surprisingly well. Lisa on the other hand, had always seemed able to hide or repress them, but it became terribly difficult to do so after Aiko's birth. Though he would miss her tremendously, he could do with being away from his daughter while Lisa would likely not be able to pull through. And it was out of the question. This was something that had to be done, in secrecy and fast, since Yamamoto would never approve if presented with this matter.
Shunsui was quite well known for his common interactions with practically every girl, save for Unohana...but he had his share of reasons not to bark under that tree. Strangely, he had rarely ever been seen speaking to Yoruichi, even long before the unfortunate events. The two knew eachother from before, and had seemingly come to some sort of agreement or compromise long before. In essence, it seemed as though Yoruichi owed him one. However, judging by the request and her nature, even if she was not in debt to him, she would have done so either way. She was a wonderful woman. On request from Shunsui, Yoruichi broke into the 8th division's barracks. Aiko had been informed of the situation by her father, who stood next to her. While Aiko was very young, she was a very cognizant and aware girl. She was one that could be talked to as an adult even if she was actually far from being one. It was one of her many merits. She was indeed a lovable girl. When Yoruichi arrived, Aiko was ready, and wrapped in Yoruichi's arms, the two fled from Soul Society. Shunsui would merely smiled and waved at his little girl, knowing it would likely be a long time until he saw her again. In the hectic state of the moment, it was difficult to recall many memories, but the subtle hints and movements from Aiko's and Shunsui's lips conveyed an, I love you. Captain Koryaku would likely face the heat once Yamamoto found out, and he likely did. There were even rumors that Aiko's desertion from Soul Society was one of the reasons the Commander was perpetually sterner to Shunsui's actions from thereon.
Like Feathers In the Wind
Aiko would stay with Yoruichi in Thailand, quite far from any neighboring communities. For the most part, it was the form of a cat, which Aiko saw most often. In fact, it wasn't long after that, with her help, Aiko was able to freely turn into a cat as well. Initially, Yoruichi had intended to just look after the girl as an step mother would. However, given her steadily active and hectic lifestyle, she found it troublesome to do so. Aiko was young enough where, by looks, she would still be considered a young teenager, barely skirting the line into the dawn of her middle to late teenage looks. However, it was prime time for training. Aiko's father and mother had likely began their shinigami training at a very young age given the magnitude of their power. Putting her training aside would have been an insult to her parents and the struggles they made to procure their daughter's well being. Though she liked her cat form quite a bit, whenever training was at hand, Yoruichi would assume her human form. The natural nakedness of her teacher never quite bothered her. She was so used to seeing her nude, that it had become quite habitual to her. In fact, the only reason Aiko wore clothes was because Yoruichi insisted on it herself, saying young girls should be clothed at all times, although she could be naked if she so pleased when she was older. She wasn't particularly sure how Lisa would react to this but, she thought it to be quite humorous.
Wasting no time, as soon as the two had found a place far enough where they could live, the training began. She just could not imagine sitting idle in a sedentary lifestyle watching over a girl, so training was as natural as it got. First things first, she made sure Aiko practiced her flash steps. Initially, Aiko thought, even at her relative young age, that she was about to best Yoruichi, but it was all a very well construed plan. Purposely, Yoruichi slowed down her speed to be fast enough to beat Aiko, but slow enough where she could at least see her. Through a plethora of training drills, Aiko's speed would increase drastically. Whenever she became fast enough to outspeed her instructor, Yoruichi would merely surprise her by speeding up even more letting it show that she was still holding back some. At some points, Aiko would only wonder if she would ever reach her instructor's speed, but she was reassured that with enough practice and hard work, one day, she might.
The drills were many and quite varied. Sometimes they made little sense to her aside from the laughter they would give her instructor, but silly or not, every thing she was made to do made her faster. From chasing her own shadow until she dropped to trying to grasp or reach the blur of clones left by Yoruichi speeding at her maximum speeds,Aiko was quickly become quite a resourceful user of flash steps. It was no surprise really, she took after her parents in her abilities, and it showed in her speed and how fast she grasped the concepts. Yoruichi would not be there forever. She only had merely over a year before she delivered her to her mother and left. In that time, she would make sure to instruct Aiko as best as she could to increase her speed and the fluidity of her flash steps. The rest was left to her mother and Aiko herself. Nevertheless, her progress was great. It was enough to amaze her instructor at how quickly she progressed and how, even without having fully matured, she was fast enough to outspeed individuals that had studied it for centuries.
As the year drew to a close, Aiko looked considerably different. Though nearly the same in physical appearance as she was when she arrived, there was a different vibe to Aiko. Her expression was significantly different than when she arrived. She looked happy, hopeful, and overall, accomplished. The feeling was reciprocated on her instructor. The best news is that neither of them had been found by the Gotei, and judging by Yoruichi's mood throughout the year, neither had the others. It was time however for the two of them to say goodbye. Aiko had become quite endeared with Yoruichi but she knew best. There were places to go. For both of them. They each had very different paths ahead of them, and they would need to walk to the path of their lives, constructing every step with the anticipation and resolved that had brought them there. Almost as in a parting gift, Yoruichi agreed to something she had not done before with Aiko. In fact, it was not the young girl who had suggested but it was her instructor instead. Aiko was likely going to train or be trained in the future. There were a plethora of powerful opponents in the world, and if fate was any indication, the future was going to be worse. In their last sparring match, Yoruichi decided to go all out, utilizing the full extent of her powers and speeding as fast as she could demonstrating her nearly unmatched flash steps. It was clear, merely by observation, that Aiko had improved tremendously. Then again, she had had one of the best, if not the best instructor in that discipline and had inherited the spiritual pressure of her parents which rivaled even theirs. Nevertheless, Aiko's speed was already easily able to match that of even some lieutenants, Yoruichi's speed was just too much. However, there was more to the lesson than a mere difference in power. Yoruichi wanted Aiko to see what she was truly capable of so she would have someone to compete against, or rather something to surpass. That way, Aiko would be encouraged to continue improving. Nearing the end of the match, Yoruichi would stand very far away, and releasing an ungodly amount of spiritual energy, it was as if electrical energy surged throughout her body caving at the ground beneath her creating rather large craters. Maintaining the form for quite a long time, she told the name of the technique to Aiko, Shunko. She explained she ran kido through her arms and legs and releasing a lot of controlled energy she harnessed it. The description was not meant to teach her Shunko, it was merely an appetizer to peek Aiko's curiosity and push her to improve as she got older, and if she had what it took, perhaps learn the ability which had been shown to her.
Gathering their belongings, the two would travel to Karakura Town, in Japan, where Aiko was to be with her mother and her friends. It went without saying that their location was to be kept secret as they were, after all, fugitives from Soul Society. Upon arrival, Aiko was met with a very large house and a kiss on the back of her head. Turning around, Yoruichi had dissipated, gone for good. It would be a long time until Aiko would see her again, but she had a hunch, that one day, she would. Opening the door, a tall and lanky blond guy smiled quite creepily at the girl as he commented on how cute she was before getting smacked against a wall by short blonde girl about Aiko's height, complaining about why he never called her beautiful. In the distance, a beautiful lady, leaning against a wall smiled at her. It was her mother. The people inside seemed to be many, and although she had a feeling their personalities were just as varied, she was not alone. She would grow. She would grow strong. She would grow well.
My Own Path
During her time with the vizards, as they began to call themselves, Aiko experienced some of the best years of her life. Only a select couple of them had achieved mastery over their hollow powers, and the rest were in the process of doing the same. Even among the struggles presented with living in secrecy, the group managed to find happiness and joy among themselves. Occasionally, Aiko would be flirted on by Shinji, much to Hiyori's dismay. Upon Aiko's absence or when she was off training with the others, Shinji usually got beat on by both Hiyori and Lisa, so for the most part, his flirts with Aiko were saved for the times when he felt specially daring and a bit masochist.
For the most part, Aiko spent her days close to Lisa. She had even taken to wearing the same kind of outfit as her. She was well aware of the reason her mother opted for the school-girl's uniform, but she did not mind in the slightest. Even at her older age, Aiko still read with her mom from time to time. Whenever Aiko read alone or her mother did so, there was no real trouble or fuss, but whenever the two of them read together, Hiyori could usually find, and beat up Shinji who seemed to have taken an interest in looking at them while they did so. However, that might have been because of the kind of reading they did. Lisa had taken quite an interest in swimsuit articles with quite the number of extremely revealing ladies. Aiko had already seen Yoruichi naked plenty of times, the pictures did not affect her at all, but she did agree some of outfits looked specially nice. It was no surprise, that pretty soon, Aiko was wearing a very similar outfit to her mom. In fact, the outfit was nearly identical save for the darker tonality of blue in Aiko's outfit in comparison to the lighter color of her mom's. Even the way they chose to wear was similar. The first time she wore it, Aiko's skirt reached just above her knees. However, given the contours of their bodies, both mother and daughter enjoyed some specially nice features in her legs and thighs. Much like her mother had, Aiko steadily decreased the length of her skirt as time went by to the point where it just barely covered her butt, occasionally showing the underside if there was in increasingly large amount of wind or fast and sudden movements involved.
During her time with the vizard, Aiko had made herself useful. They could use as many people as they could to help the others tame the hollows within. Although Lisa was slightly hesitant at first, she was convinced and gave in. Aiko was very powerful, nearly on her mother's level if not about to pass her. Along with the others, Aiko was thrown to battle the crazed and struggling Captains and Lieutenants fighting their hollows. Luckily, it was one by one and timed, so although Aiko battled one of them, she would be tagged out by the entrance of another member, until her turn came around again. Though the actions were primarily to make sure the vizard earned control over their hollow, it benefited Aiko strongly. They were very high ranking members of the Gotei, and adding the inner hollow and their abilities made up a very imposing and fearsome opponent. It was during this time that Aiko was able to release her shikai and use it to hold her own against them. The speed of the hollowfied vizards was very fast, but Aiko was no slouch. She was easily able to keep up with all of them. It was hard to take a guess, but it was almost as if Yoruichi had known her near future all along and had trained her according to it. The battle against the vizard in their struggle did much to enhance her speed and empower her senses to see incoming attacks and reflect them with certain degree of ease and security.
To Better Times
Following the triumphant victory of the vizard over their inner hollows, there was a very unexpected time of peace. The group had been used to a hectic past and memories. Both as a part of their duties in Soul Society and because of the uneventful events that had befall them. In the time being, Aiko had received certain items from former Captain Urahara. Among them, there was a gigai. Though going outside was to be done under careful watch as it had not been more than a couple decades since the escape, Aiko and her mother did venture out every now and then. The gigai was enough to make her visible in the world of the living and hide her spiritual pressure for the most part.
As she trained in other aspects expected of shinigami, although most did no longer consider themselves one, Aiko spent a considerable amount of time with Hachi. While some, like Kensei, were often doing rough work, and others, like Shinji and Hiyori were often arguing with each other, Hachi seemed to be a bit more secluded and given into enjoying nature or a good non-alcoholic drink. Aiko got along well with him, specially since she demonstrated an innate talent to perform kido. In more than one occasion, Hachi had mentioned she could have done well in the kido corps as she had the potential to be among one of the very best had she been in it. During most days, the two would go down to the training field in the basement and practice her kido. Surprising as it was, she was often able to recreate with near perfection, almost every kido he taught her.
Hiyori seemed to have taken a keen interest in her as well, specially since Shinji had a habit of looking at Aiko as she walked, even if it earned him quite the strong hit. Though it was contested and a source for discussion, Kensei, Hiyori, and even her mom undertook the task of teaching her hand to hand combat. Not only was it a necessity on the world of the living, but her former instructor, Yoruichi, and even her father, Shunsui, were well known for their mastery of it. Hiyori's teachings were more leaned on how to best hurt a man, specially Shinji. Her mother's teachings involved graceful ways of fighting an opponent and occasionally showing more than they wanted to see... Kensei on the other hand, could have easily been called her hand to hand instructor. He didn't waste time and disliked when others made him do so. Aiko was easily taken and readily flowed the advice and orders of her friends, Kensei included. His teachings was strictly how to fight an opponent with the body and how to pulverize him using such. Training with him was grueling and exhausting as he had made it clear he would not go easy on her just because she was a woman or Lisa's daughter. Kensei didn't dislike her, quite the opposite. He was very fond of Lisa, but because he was, he seemed to despise the bullshit and wanted to show her what he knew and what she needed to know to make her mother proud.
The hardest subject to get to had been zanjutsu. Aiko was extremely proficient at it. The problem was getting Shinji to teach her. He was always around but always seemed to find an excuse to lazy about and not do so until Hiyori and Lisa beat him into understanding. Among all the Vizard, Shinji was the more likened to a teacher. He was very immature, often making remarks about her voluptuous body as they fought and how if he didn't stop looking at her breasts and her legs she might cut his head off in one slash. She didn't mind the flirts at all. In fact, they were a nice distraction and made the training go faster.
However, it was not all good. As she aged, Aiko started to leak more and more spiritual energy out. It was a lot. It was just too much. Having inherited her father's nearly immeasurable spiritual pressure, and likely destined to surpass him, her overflowing energy was very hard to keep hidden, even with the plethora of barriers Hachi had set around the compound. In response, Urahara had sent specially tailored accessories. In the form of rings, they were the strongest he was currently able to make. While they did not completely hid her immense spiritual pressure, they mask the ungodly pressure enough to make it appear more normal, make it easier on Hachi and on the humans. She even had help from Hachi who instructed her how to make a special kind of kido which she could tailor to slightly enhance the power of the rings. It was during those times that she remembered. Shunko. She was unsure she could perform it yet, but it was worth consulting Hachi. Aiko had become a masterful use of kido but he was still his instructor on it. Asking him in regards to the ability, and mentioning what she observed and what she was told, he seemed surprise. While he had heard of the attack he had yet to see it. However, judging by the information provided, he was able to provide her with hints and ways in which she could likely approach and try to attain it. Training her body and her soul farther, Aiko was able to nearly replicate the shunko though not quite as she hoped. She was able to create a nearly like effect but it quickly dissipated before the peak of the power was reached and maintained. Though the power was still beyond her, she had gotten closer, and one day, she would.
The Point of No Return
Aiko had great dominion over her spiritual pressure, but even with the rings and her own control, there was enough spiritual energy coming off from her to the point where it was alarming, even to the Vizards. There was only one thing to do. Aiko was to go to Urahara where he would try to teach her and guide her on how to better control her powers. It was almost unfair really. Her control was near absolute,e almost on par with the Lieutenant and Captain level Vizard, she just had extreme reservoirs of reiatsu that could drive most people mad. It was not truly a goodbye per say. Although it would likely be a good long time before she saw her mother again, as it was not wise for the Vizard and Urahara to be seen together in the same place, they would likely see eachother in the future. Plus, Aiko was much older, an adult. Like her mother and father once had, Aiko had to live her life and learn from her success and her mistakes. Upon meeting Urahara, she was surprised at his appearance. Aiko was well acquainted with most Captains from her time at the Soul Society, and though she had heard a lot about Urahara, she had never quite seen him. He was simpler than she thought, rather approachable. He was a very kind and likable guy. The same could be said of Tessai, even if his nearly perpetual straight face sent shivers down her spine from time to time.
Using some of the more updated materials, Urahara was able to upgrade her rings to cover up more of her spiritual energy. Though it still leaked out to immense degrees, it was much less so, and no different to the one let out near subconsciously by the Captain level Vizard. At Urahara's place, Aiko had just expected to find a way to hide more of her spiritual pressure and be on her way. The Vizard and her mother seemed to expect the same so as well. Urahara however, had very different plans. She had heard he was quite the resourceful and clever man, but initially, it was difficult to decipher the reasoning for his actions. Aiko was extremely strong, but Urahara wished for her to become even stronger. He wanted her to achieve her bankai. He spoke of upcoming war, some very soon, and others which would likely spawn hundreds of years into the future. He was a man of vision and his words, although hypothetical, were prophesies which were likely to become a reality on her future. One way or another, becoming stronger had always been on her plans. She wanted to make her parents proud.
During the next decade, Aiko would train nearly every day with Urahara and Tessai. The latter helped her get her kido even farther from her already masterful state. She truly thought there was not much more she could learn, but Tessai presented challenge after challenge, and after every successful attempt, her power in kido seemed to grow substantially. Her bankai had also become an attainable and successfully achieved goal. During her time with her mother and the Vizard, Aiko had grown extremely close to her Zanpakutō and could sense herself, that the time when she would achieve bankai was drawing ever closer and it was just a matter of time. Training with Urahara merely pushed her limits, much like Tessai did for her in regards to kido. She was pushed to train like she had never had before, and thus was only natural that her bankai was achieved. Though she seemed surprised, Urahara just met her with looks of satisfaction as if he had known her potential and likeliness for success all along. It would seem Urahara was aware of more than he allowed. Naturally, upon achieving her bankai, her power had grown to nearly immeasurable levels. He assured her that her control was excellent, but she merely had too much power to be able to control it effectively. Her spiritual pressure was just too immense. That being said, she never did take the reinforced rings off, for doing so would likely unleash more power than she could anticipate. He suggested she went away somewhere where she could further her skills. Staying in Karakura, given the power she possessed, would only place her mother in danger. The Vizard were well aware of her potential as was Lisa, and thus Aiko was supposed to follow the advice she was given. And she did.
On Her Way
Aiko had left to leave in one of the far off and inhabited areas of Russia. Though she enjoyed company, time alone was what she needed more. There, she would be able to continue her training without external interruption or worry about the power she leaked out from hurting others. Before she had left, Urahara had been a bit more specific about the current war, and it was best she stayed away. Perhaps it was for her safety or out of a request of her parents. Nevertheless, she had no interest in that war, and staying away seemed as good a choice as any. It was during her years on her own and away, that Aiko was able to fully learn and master Shunko. It had been terribly long since she had seen Yoruichi, but she could only imagine, from what she had seen, that hers rivaled her instructor.Though her element was not the same used by Yoruichi, her Shunko was nevertheless, extremely strong. Kido never took a backseat either, as Aiko, taking after Hachi and Tessai, seemed to be fond of it, almost like a hobby, and could commonly be seen creating new and intricate forms of kido that had a wide variety of uses.
Such was her routine for quite a number of years. Aiko had always been easily entertained, and having fun, the years seemed to go by without even noticing. Occasionally, as a result of her increasingly stronger reiatsu, the occasional hollows were drawn out to her location, but dispatching them was always as easy as breathing regardless of their power. In many occasions, she merely had to exhale and let her suppressed reiatsu asphyxiate the hollow assailants. Though the control she had over her reiatsu was nearly unmatched, her power seemed to be growing just as fast throughout the years so it was never quite possible to get it under control. It never we but that was something she had learn to live with and was alright with. There was likely people like her in the world, but she had never met anyone with a spiritual pressure that would rival hers, Granted, she had never released the full power of her spiritual pressure, but honestly, it scared her to do so. It was unclear how far it would extend and how would get caught on it.
During one of her strolls throughout the desolate area, she met a young shinigami. Surprised by his suspiciously kind and non-violent attitude, the two held small talk, while Aiko made sure to disclose as little as possible about her and her family, even if it had been nearly half a millennium since her desertion from Soul Society. Leaving with the same secrecy he had left, Aiko saw the man off. There was nothing to fear. He looked tame enough and posed no real threat to her. And if the encounter amounted to more graze with the shinigami, that seemd to be just fine with her. She had been hidden and away from everything for so long, she just needed contact.
From that day on, it was almost as if she had been watched. it would come to no surprise when a large number of shinigami appeared before her one day with the intentions to take her into Soul Society. Their behavior was quite delicate so it seemed they did not meant harm. And seeing no further purpose for her in the world of the living she acceded. The world of the living had been thrown into such a turmoil between the old and new species, that even staying away from the conflict had been quite the imposing feat.
In Soul Society, she was met by a man called Tsubasa Unabara, the new Captain Commander of the Gotei 13. The guy was a looker, totally cute. Though his words hinted at something else, he seemed to have an strikingly hard time keeping his eyes off of her long legs and the edge where her skirt covered her butt. Her gaze was one which had so many meanings, and his sight merely reflected the plead from a man wishing not to be seen as a pervert. Nevertheless, there was something else about him. He was obviously purposely restraining and suppressing his spiritual energy, yet there was a substantial amount of it. In fact, his spiritual pressure was the strongest she had ever felt besides her own. His power seemed to be just slightly above hers. To be honest, it made her wonder how well she would stack the guy was to release the power of his spiritual pressure as she did so. However, thinking such things at that time was uncalled for and thus did not made it past her thoughts.
Once greeted, the man, Tsubasa, had explained to her the reason for her prompt invitation. The man was obviously aware of who Aiko was, and who her parents were. However, he did not seemed to be interested in the past nor on their location, he had a more keen interest on her. She was told she was brought primarily because of her power and the potential asset she would become to the Gotei. She would have sworn Tsubasa had a different kind of asset in mind, but nevertheless, she remained quiet save for small and veiled smiles. During her time at the Gotei, she was offered quite a number of positions of varying degrees of responsibility, even that of Captain, albeit being overqualified for most given her immense power. Whether it was doubt or something else, she never truly accepted either, prolonging her choice as much as she could. She was told she shouldn't be pressured and that she could take as long as she needed to.
The two would see each other quite often, as Tsubasa always wondered if she had finally made a choice. On one of their encounters, the two had gone off into the wilderness to reflect in the times of old. It was not clear who brought it first, though it was possibly Aiko, but she wanted to see his spiritual pressure firsthand. It was a difficult request to fulfill as the man kept of denying it. Removing her rings and tossing them aside, they broke into particles of dust as soon as they were released from her fingers. Though Aiko did her best and actually concealed as much spiritual energy as she could, the mere surge was enough to cave in the ground beneath her and send ripples through the area, devastating the surroundings. That was not even her real power and she had always been blissfully unaware of her potential. With a smile, Tsubasa seemed to break some shackles that held him and with a loud scream he released a near immeasurable and ungodly amount of energy that devastated the surroundings around them beyond belief. Asking him if that was truly the maximum he could do, he replied honestly saying that it was. The amount of power release was more than Aiko was releasing herself, but she was holding in quite a bit. Feeling free from everything for the first time in her life, she spread her arms as she allowed the full extent of her powers to course through her destroying the area likely beyond repair and colliding against the wild energy of the man before her. The look on both of their faces was that of shock and disbelief. Their spirit energy was evenly matched. Aiko never believed there could possibly be anyone that could match the full power she possessed, and it was likely a feeling that was shared by Tsubasa. Controlling their power and lowering it down almost in unison, she smiled and left. She had become better at subconsciously controlling hr power, but with so many strong individuals in Soul Society, she would no longer need the rings or other artifacts to hide her true self.
On more than one occasion, she had found the current Commander, Tsubasa, looking at her and following her. He wasn't distrustful. That wasn't it. It couldn't have been her power. Sure, her power was nearly unmemorable, but Tsubasa was still stronger than her. Though his position awarded him the most respect and honor, Aiko treated him no different than she would treat a regular member. That being said, she treated every member with respect. However, she enjoyed teasing the man in ways she was sure many did not even attempt to. He had often said his behavior and observation merely stemmed out of his curiousness as a past 12th division Captain, but to Aiko, it only came off as bullshit. She could see through him, whether he liked to accept it or not. It had even gone to the point where, in some of his natural observations, she had transformed into a cat much like her former instructor had. To his surprise, he must have not expected the sight when Aiko turned back into a human. Nude. Encroaching on his personal space but with a subtle look of innocence, it would have been uncalled for him to push her away. Their spiritual energies resonating with eachother unlike she had felt before, she must have been one of the rare few not to feel suffocated by his power, and instead thrived and felt the energy he gave out was rather...soothing. Nestling into his chest, she would merely smile, and say with a blush, "I know." As a reflection the man had blushed and made an expression of shock as if he did not know how to blush and had done so without previous rehearsal. Though the afternoon left the events quite abruptly. The chance would present itself quite often, as the two would usually find ways to meet and make up excuses as to why they chose to do so. As time went by, it was clear, to them, and to all, that the couple was in love. Following a very simple and private wedding, albeit it being public knowledge, Aiko had made her choice. After marrying him, she ahd decided to join the 1st Squad. Although her power was substantially over that of any seated officers she wanted to be just a mere seated member. Her power easily overshadowed that of some Captains so she was over-qualified for her position. However, she wanted not to lead. She merely wanted to be close to her husband. To help him. To care for him. To guide him. Aiko Unabara. The First Lady of the First Division.

Subject Post 3Subject: Re: Aiko Kyoraku [APPROVED 0-4+] Sat Feb 22, 2014 10:55 pm
- Natural/Passive Abilities:
Oken: After being appointed to the 0 Division as the Master of Realms, Aiko received a very important welcome gift. Each member of the Zero Division has had the power of the Ōken imparted onto their bones by the Soul King. The Oken is a key that is put in the very bones of those who enter the Zero Division; it is a key given to them which allows them to access the Soul King's palace.
City of the Heavens: As a member of the 0 Division, Aiko has her own city at the Soul King Palace, where the organization of the Zero Division is based within.
Master Swordsman: Having trained most of her life with some of the best instructors possible, and inheriting the abilities of one of the best swordsman to have ever existed in Soul Society, it is no surprise that Aiko has quite the skill with the blade. Like most shinigami, zanjutsu is an essential part of their training. Among her many instructors in this art, Shinji Hirako and Kitsuke Urahara stand out as her main teachers in the art of the blade. Learning by the sweat of her brow, she was taught to how to attack, defend and create the most strategic and beneficial movements from the simplest of actions. Easily being ably to block and parry one handed mighty blows from extremely physical opponents, she is often regarded as being on a similar skill level with the blade as Shunsui once was, and she has made her father proud. Easily learning most techniques by sight and creating her own, her movements are rather unorthodox and fluid, making it extremely difficult for opponents to pinpoint her attacks and adding layer after layer of potential danger to her movements and death to her swings.
Legendary Kido Goddess: From an extremely young age, it was pretty clear that Aiko would grow to make her mark in history as one of the best kido users the spiritual world had ever seen. Inheriting her parent's gift in Kido, it was no surprise she was so eager and quick to learn it. Even before she got much older, she had already surpassed Shunsui and Lisa in their own advents. Not only is Aiko a marvelous kido user but she literally loves practicing it. She also had some of the best instructors in the discipline anyone could ever hope to have. Initially, she was trained and guided by Hachi, Vizard and former Lieutenant of the revered Kido Corps. He was able to teach her extremely high level Hadō and bakudo. With him, she also learned how to cast very peculiar and unique kido's which were not exactly one discipline or the other and had instead stemmed out of hundreds of years of practice and experiment by Hachi himself. Aiko also received quite a lot of guide and teaching in the art of Kido by Kisuke Urahara and Tessai. Aside from their nearly unmatched intellect, both Urahara and Tessai were widely regarded as some of the best Kido users in the history of Soul Society. Urahara was easily able to create a large number of kido at the same time and even create his own specific ones, something he instilled and inspired Aiko to do. Tessai on the other hand was the former Captain of the Kido Corps, a feat which hinted as his seemingly unteachable skill in kido by anyone else. His power was such that even Urahara was often astounded by the kido he could command without incantations as well as the forbidden kido he possessed and was able to perform. Under their tutelage, Aiko became able to make just about every kido known to her instructors. In fact, throughout their training, she would grow to become able to cast her kido, regardless of power or difficulty without requiring an incantation for any of them. As a token for Urahara, though Aiko no longer needed an incantation for any form or type of kido, he taught her how to say the incantation extremely rapidly should she ever desire to do so. On her own, she continued on with the teachings of her instructors. Building on their lessons and the kidos they taught her, Aiko had created a wide variety of Kido that are unique to her and tailored with her own energy. Though it would skirt the feeling of modesty, it is nearly impossible to find anyone with a higher degree of mastership over kido than her. Easily being able to create new kido stronger than some of the most powerful known kido, she also possesses knowledge over forbidden kido. Having surpassed her parents ages ago, she has become a legend in kido, and one that will undeniably be spoken off for millenniums whenever someone speaks about the best of the best in the discipline.
Bakudō #30. Shitotsu Sansen (嘴突三閃, Beak-Piercing Triple Beam) Incantation: Unknwon Description: Aiko creates a strong burst of crackling yellow energy in his/her palm. The energy creates an inverted yellow triangle, which generates solidified energy in the shape of smaller triangles from its three points. The smaller triangles fire and hit the intended target, pinning them against a nearby surface by slamming into their body in three places in the shape of a perfect triangle and immobilizing them.
Bakudō #37. Tsuriboshi (吊星, Suspending Star) Incantation: Unknown Description: Aiko creates a ball of blue energy which fires out six ropes from its center. As the ropes attach themselves to nearby sturdy objects, the energy in the center solidifies into a flat elastic-like cushion, which catches falling objects.
Bakudō #61. Rikujōkōrō (六杖光牢, Six Rods Prison of Light; Viz "Six-Rod Light Restraint") Incantation: Carriage of thunder, bridge of a spinning wheel. With light, divide this into six. Description: By pointing her finger at the target, Aiko generates a spark of yellow energy, which summons six thin, wide beams of light that slam into a target's midsection and hold them in place. The target is unable to move any part of their body, including the parts which were not struck by the beams.
Bakudō #62. Hyapporankan (百歩欄干, Hundred Steps Fence) Incantation: Unknown Description: Aiko generates a blue-white glowing rod of energy in her hand and throws it at the intended target. It multiplies into a hundred more rods, which rain down on the target and pin him or her against a solid surface, completely immobilizing them. It is hard to dodge in a small area.
Bakudō #63. Sajō Sabaku (鎖条鎖縛, Locking Bondage Stripes) Incantation: Unknown Description: Raising her palm up to the target, Aiko closes her hand into a fist and calls forth yellow energy, taking a form of very thick rope, which binds the upper body of the target. Physical strength alone should not be enough to break out of this.
Bakudō #75. Gochūtekkan (五柱鉄貫, Five-Pillared Iron Weights) Incantation: Walls of iron sand, a priestly pagoda, glowing ironclad fireflies. Standing upright, silent to the end. Description: Clasping her hands together, five small yellow orbs with skinny tails emerge from between her clasped hands and move above Aiko's head before forming a circle of five. Raising her clasped hands above her head, Aiko slams them downward, sending the orbs into the ground. As a bright light is generated in the sky above the intended target, five tall and thick pillars, which are connected to each other by chains, pin the target to the ground.
Bakudō #79. Kuyō Shibari (九曜縛, Nine Sunlight Traps) Incantation: Unknown Description: Aiko creates eight black holes with purple outlines which emit spiritual energy in the space surrounding the target, with the ninth black hole manifesting itself in the center of the target's chest, with the intention of immobilizing the target.
Bakudō #81. Dankū (斷空, Splitting Void) Incantation: Unknown Description: Aiko creates a defensive wall to protect against an enemy's attack.

The practitioner generates purple/black spiritual energy, which envelops the target with a powerful torrent of gravity before taking the form of a box of black energy, covered in several spear-like protrusions which pierce the box, lacerating the one inside from head to toe. Though the spell is very difficult to use, as some well renowned users have only been able to display a third of its power without using the incantation, Aiko can use it easily at its top potential. However, if Aiko uses the incantation it is noticeably different in appearance. The sky appears to darken as multiple boxes of black energy appear, each of them topped off with cross-shaped spears, before they multiply and close in on their victim.

Hadō #98. Fenikkusu no kami (フェニックスの神, Phoenix god)* Incantation: Phoenix king, escape from the sun. Show your might on the earth and devour and let none survive this hour. Description: A giant bird that looks red and even feels extremely hot even from a distance is thrust at the opponent. The bird with a size that could overshadow a large city block flies at the target at extremely fast speeds as it spreads its wings increasing the range of impact before the ladder.

May the unworthy see their ends in destruction and pain with a power so great no one may see again. Description: The crowning jewel of Aiko's legendary mastership over kido. Far beyond the reaches of specialized sight and man, an enormously powerful blast is condensed into a gigantic sphere that dwarfs the power of a supernova. With a motion, the blast travels the distance at near light speeds effectively hitting the opponent or being directed until it does. The attack is designed to seek the target and impact nothing but it, primarily because the power of this kido is enough to damage the earth and the core and possibly decreasing the lifespan of the planet if on the world of the living or Soul Society itself if it were to be shot there. Therefore, this kido is only reserved for the best of the best to deal upon them a punishment only the cursed of fate will have the nightmare of enduring.
*These kido are specially created and tailored by Aiko on her own building on the training she obtained from her instructors. Therefore, though she assigned the rank to the kidos based on their powers, the kido belong to her.*
Keikaigi (繫界儀, World-Tying Rite) Incantation: My right hand is the stone that bridges worlds. My left hand is the blade that binds reality. The black-haired shepherd is hung from a chair.

Kūkanten'i (空間転位, Spatial Displacement) Incantation: Unknown Description: Forbidden kido which teleports a specified portion of space from one point to another. During this transfer, currently active kidō spells remain as such.
Sentan Hakuja (千反白蛇, Thousand-Coil White Snake) Incantation: Unknown Description: A long, white piece of cloth is spun around to incorporate targets within its coils. As the cloth tightens, with a white flash, it teleports the targets to another location.
Noren Mekuri (暖簾捲り, Curtain Stripping) Incantation: Unknown Description: Nullifies types of illusory effects which may be used to conceal something from view. Extending their hand, Aiko appears to be gripping thin air before stripping away the technique which is currently in effect. Doing so creates a light blue-violet aura around the object which is being revealed as it gradually comes into view.
Shunko: At a very young age, and during the time when she trained with Yoruichi, Aiko got a chance to see her display her shunko. Aside from the name and the observations she could make herself, there was no real teachings or guidance given to her. Shunko was a very special technique, and Yoruichi had intended for Aiko to either figure it out herself in her future as she progressed and got stronger or simply not if she couldn't handle it. Throughout her life, it was always a somewhat secretly inner goal of hers. Though Kido and other disciplines were seen been practiced the most, on the back of her head, shunko was always picking at her abilities, and she never wasted time to try and get closer to the technique, crack it, and make it hers. Hachi was of significant importance in her endeavor. In between their kido training, though he was not personally acquainted with shunko he allowed her to see and experience what channeling kido through the body would feel like. Tessai and Urahara also helped her to gain more ground and get near attaining the technique. Given Aiko's near-legendary status in kido and dominion over it, she found it quite easy to manipulate it and bend it to her will. Combining it with her speed and her hakuda experience, she would finally learn to use shunko later on in her life and master it, making it a uniquely part of her powers that was hers.
Much like her Zanpakutō's abilities, the element of Aiko's shunko was a reflection of the element in her soul. Water. With her nearly immeasurable amount of spiritual pressure she would let out unreal amounts of pressurized kido that manifested as overflowing currents of water. Initially, Aiko would always end up being naked after every use of the technique as the amazing power of the technique practically shredded and disintegrated her clothing into nothingness. It was also in part why she spent much of her time training naked, much like Yoruichi had done centuries before. It was not until returning to Soul Society and becoming close to Tsubasa that he provided her a fair number of her school-girl uniforms but with an specially created spiritual material that did not get destroyed once the technique was active while maintaining the texture of the fabric. However, given the massive power of the technique, the clothing can only hold for so long. For the most part, the outfit will remain as is, however, if the battle drags on to fairly lengthy terms it has been known to shred pieces of the clothing. Though it has not been tested, it is possible that the clothing will progressively shred more the longer the battle drags on. Being naked however, has never been a concern for her.
Upon activation, Aiko's body is surrounded and encircled multiple times by the water and reiatsu she makes. She once compared some of the characteristics of her shunko to the water cycle. Almost like a water vortex, there are a plethora of thin and thick waves of water encircling her as they spiral indefinitely, allowing her to maintain her shunko for as long as she wishes. As soon as she begins using shunko, there is an extremely loud sound hear as if millions of waves crashed onto rocks all around them. Aside from creating massive explosions and craters, the ability grants Aiko a wide variety of benefits. The water, as it automatically encircles her body, seems to do more so around her limbs and torso, allowing her to deliver extremely powerful blows and maintain attacks that could easily rival and even exceed most bankai. At will, Aiko can freely fire water based attacks from any of her limbs or anywhere on her body by motioning the specific body part. However, she may even do so without moving a muscle by merely willing it with her mind which makes her combat prowess much more difficult to deal with. The water in her shunko can be manipulated completely to create rather thin or thick attacks, long or short and even manipulate the sharpness and bluntness level or the texture and toughness of the water.
By supplying enough energy and power to the shunko, she can block most elemental attacks by changing the qualities of the water as block as block blades or any other solid objects through sheer power.
Shunko Whirlwind: After using her shunko, Aiko can control and manipulate the plethora of water streams spiraling around her body in a vortex. By making them extremely tough and able to whistand nearly any attack, she purposely reshapes the edges of the water streams to be razor sharp with jagged ends to mirror what one would see in fish hooks. Using her ungodly speed and the near-godly power of her shunko as a catalyst, she spins at extremely fast speeds to the point where anyone looking at her would only see a blue sphere with a myriad of spiky sharp structures surround her. Even at that speed, she is able to sense and see her opponents. Given her largely unorthodox movements, she is able to travel at nearly unreal speeds in any direction she wishes, easily changing her course and goal at a moment's notice. This an specially tailored technique of Aiko's as it provides both a deadly form of attack and a nearly perfect form of defense.
Shunko Drilling Webs: At will, during her shunko state, Aiko may allow strong sharp bodies of water of varying degrees of thickness to come out and aid her as she so pleases. She has been known to allow a large number of spiraling sharp and through bodies of water to erupt from her back and her body to pierce, destroy, attack and protect her from nearly any attack, caving them down under the overwhelming power of her shunko. Likewise she has been known to shoot out from her hands a wide and large number of water-senbons of extremely sharp and penetrating capabilities infused with her shunko power. From a similar technique, she forces a large cylindrical, almost like a spear-shaped- body of water to shoot out on her hand towards her opponent to impale, cut and destroy it.

Subject Post 4Subject: Re: Aiko Kyoraku [APPROVED 0-4+] Fri Feb 28, 2014 12:44 am
- Natural/Passive Abilities (Continued):
Lightning Speed: One of the earliest disciplines in which Aiko was trained in was speed. From an early age, she showed great promise and skill in her flash steps, even going as far as impressing her mother and even her father. Though their own display of speed was renowned, Aiko was, at her age, many times faster than they were at hers. Following her escape from Soul Society with Yoruichi, she was trained every single day by the lady who was thought to be by most, the fastest woman to have come out of Soul Society. Not wanting to spoil and take away from Lisa they joy of raising and teaching her daughter, Yoruichi decided to train Aiko in only her speed. While the rest would be left for Aiko and her mother and friends to teach her, it would not have been fair to dishonor her father and her request, and so, their training went underway. Yoruichi trained her with a myriad of drills, each specially designed to increase her speed exponentially. Every time Aiko would get faster, Yoruichi would increase her own speed and give more challenges to the girl. Making Aiko chase her own shadow, then chase Yoruichi's, the drills were varied and unique. By the end of their training, Aiko was easily able to at least catch up with Yoruichi and engage in mild combat. Through the later years, the training Aiko would undergo with her mother and the vizards, and later on with Urahara, would also work to extremely enhance her speed beyond what had ever been thought possible of her. On her own, she continued to create drills for herself, much like her instructors had once created, constantly challenging herself and her own limits to force herself to become stronger and faster than ever.
Hand to Hand Master: Hakuda has always come natural to Aiko, though most may be able to deduce that just by seeing the form of her sealed Zanpakutō. Her gloves. Many of her opponents who know little to nothing about her have usually compared her to the flash goddess Yoruichi because of her use of shunko and lack of a Zanpakutō. However. That's a mistake. Aiko always carries her Zanpakutō, hers just happened to be gloves which effectively aid her in her hand to hand combat endeavors. Her father was well known for his hand to hand prowess, quite often resorting to it when facing weaker opponents to avoid drawing his sword. Though Aiko did not spend as much time as she had wanted with him, it seems some of his mannerisms and ideas suck with her nonetheless. Most often resorting to her hakuda, she is quite commonly seeing making use of hand to hand combat in altercations she deems of lesser importance or where she would just merely want to avoid a drawn out battle from ensuing.
Not only was her dedication and innate talent elemental for her mastership over hakuda, but her instructors pushed her to strive and become stronger in the discipline than she ever thought possible. Among her teachers in hand to hand combat, Hiyori, Machiro, Kensei and Urahara stand out as the most memorable although she did engage with others in hand to hand combat. From Hiyori she learned primarily utility movements that were very much unorthodox and likely of Hiyori's own creation. Though they most often targeted male areas and were meant to induce pain rather than win battles, she as a driving force in her mastership of Hakuda. Machiro on the other hand focused heavily on teaching Aiko how to best use her legs...for combat. The both of them were known for their power and long legs and thus it was not difficult for Aiko to learn and imitate the movements Machiro taught her. However, with Kensei it was much different. More focused on punches and elbow hits, he never had time for foolish attitude and pushed her to be better not out of anger but out of care for Aiko and respect for her mother, Lisa. In Urahara she would find the man who would instill what little she still lacked. Though shocked, she would learn countless strategies from the man that had once been in charge of the Maggot's Nest. Much like her other disciplines however, she was not done, with any of them, even today. On her own, she continued to pursue greatness training on her own and developing new forms of attack and defense and creating new and more challenging methods to improve. Her astounding mastery over hakuda is of the many reasons why her shunko possesses such an undeniably and nearly untouchable power.
Tesshō (鉄掌, Iron Palm) Description: Open palm strike which can effortlessly shatter a Hollow's head with a single strike.
Panchira Torunēdo (パンチラトルネード, Panty-Flash Tornado) Description: Learning the move from her mother, Aiko performs an upside-down rotating straddle split, allowing her to deliver multiple kick attacks to a nearby opponent.
Gatoringu Jidanda (地団駄 (ガトリング), Gatling Mad-Stomping) Description: Aiko performs multiple foot stomps on the target's face. The technique is powerful enough to send opponents flying and even break through most strong defenses.
Ikkotsu (一骨, Single Bone) Description: A powerful punch which can destroy much of the target's abdomen, send them flying along a city street, and throw them through a building.
Sōkotsu (双骨, Double Bone) Description: A powerful, two-fisted punch used which can totally destroy an opponent in one blow.
Oni Dekopin (鬼デコピン, Oni Headpoke) Description: Pulling a finger back against her thumb, Aiko flicks it at an opponent. The blow carries enough physical force to send the opponent flying a considerable distance away and crashing through multiple physical constructs.
Raiōken (雷王拳, Thunder King Fist) Description: Aiko performs a series of ultra-high-speed punches with both arms. The attack is strong enough to cave in and exceedingly damage the opponent as well as destroy the surroundings in the process beyond recognition.
Legendary Spirit Energy: It would silly, to be rather blunt, to say Aiko possesses an immense amount of energy. Her spiritual power is way beyond comparison and cannot truly be measured. Inheriting the immense spiritual power from Shunsui and Lisa, is not strange that she would end up attaining a power that matched and exceeded theirs. From an early age, most that met commented on her extremely large reservoirs of spiritual pressure, namely Kisuke Urahara. It is a wildly held belief that the rare individuals who possessed spiritual pressures beyond comparison usually have trouble controlling their massive power. In most cases, they are not able to control it all at all and thus it just leaks out by itself. This is not the case with Aiko. She possesses a masterful control over her powers which can only be matched by legends. However, her reservoirs of spiritual power are such that her latent power continually leaks out regardless of how much effort or control she has over them.
During her training, Urahara had to constantly create devices that would hide some of her power, because the massive amount of energy she gave out was too much, even when she lived with the Vizard and would jeopardize their secrecy. With time, even after many gadgets were created and intensive training with Urahara and others increased her control, her spiritual power was such where she had no choice but leave and continue to grow stronger elsewhere as not put her mother and others in danger. In her life, she has never met a single being who has had spiritual pressure greater than hers. The only one who has even come close is her husband, Tsubasa Unabara, whose immense spiritual pressure nearly matches her own. When she is ready for battle, there is no doubt that people will know she means business. Easily spawning hundreds of miles, her power can be felt even from many cities away from where the battle is taking place.She even affects the environment by just being there as the area has been known to become extremely humid given her natural affinity and her Zanpakutō's to water. Much like a goddess of the sky and storms, clouds move rather rapidly hen she faces down a foe in combat, as the air intensifies and round begins to crack and cave under the massive power she lets out.
Cellular Transmutation: One of Aiko's most peculiar techniques, she discovered it quite by accident. Observing the behavior of certain animals from the world of the living during her times of self-realization, she managed to find out the potential to recreate her own unique version of what she admired. Her own special genetic make up seems to have been mutated to allow her to manipulate the cells on her body to a great extent. By undergoing a form of cellular transdifferentiation, also known as lineage deprogramming, her mature somatic cells transform and duplicate into other mature somatic cells without undergoing an intermediate progenitor cell type. In essence, Aiko is able to revert the cells on her body to their normal levels and achieve homeostasis. The cells being controlled are not limited to the outer dead skin of the epidermis or even the dermis. Potentially everything within her body, composed of the cells and her own DNA coding can be reverted to achieve homeostasis, even more that of more specific organs like the epithelial simple squamous tissue found on the lining of the lungs.
In essence, should homeostasis be thrown off in any way, either via an injury or wound or some form of viral disease, or anything that causes homeostasis to not be maintained, the ability would quick in. By either reverting the cells on the skin in case of a wound, recreating more cells in case of a severed or lost limb, repairing an organ in case of puncture or malfunction or even revamping and creating new platelets and blood cells to override an infection in the bloodstream. Though the ability is somewhat autonomous in that, like her body does not have to think so to breathe as it is subconscious response, the ability would kick off on itself even if Aiko does not command it to, and thus, though larger wounds or injuries might be visible, she does not have to be aware of the impending threat or danger to kick off the ability. However, if she takes notice and wills it, the effects of the ability can become quite a bit stronger and finish quite a lot faster, rivaling some of the more well known regeneration techniques. Though she can affect he allies with some of the benefits she naturally enjoys, it is not quite the same. By placing a hand on them, she is able to take a sample of their cell structures and DNA and thus act as a catalyst to achieve similar results should her ally have any injuries. However, she is limited to only being able to heal injuries and wounds occurring in the epidermis, the dermis and the subcutaneous are and adipose tissue. Though she may easily do so on her own body, she is not able to positively affect the inner organs or the bloodstream of her allies. Though its not quite clear just how fast and how much she can regenerate at the best of her capabilities, she infers she can likely regenerate limbs quite easily and very fast and rid herself of infections even faster.
Potential After-Effects and Perks of Cellular Transmutation: Aside from the outwardly visible benefits of cellular transmutation, there's a lot more going on in the inside that meets the eye. For the most part, the body is very smart, and Aiko's is no difference. Just like a body is automatically conditioned to release endorphin during times of extreme stress or pain to induced a more relax, feel-good feeling of well being, her ability is adapted to learn from the encounters and build itself to better fight what has been observed. Her ability enables her to upgrade most of her body chemicals to better fight what has ailed it. For instance, exposure to any form of antigen would likely, after Aiko has undergone cellular transdifferentiation and expelled said antigen, her body would adapt and create a larger number of stronger antibodies, specially by drastically increasing the response time of T helper cells and equally increasing the amount and power of the cytotoxic T cells they activate. Therefore, an infection, poison or any ailment that may have affected her at some point before it was destroyed, would no longer affect her as her body would have become immune to its potential actions.
Similar effects can be achieved voluntarily so long as Aiko wills it, for quite a variety of reasons. Most people do not have perfect sight. Different parts of the eye work together to blend in light, and be able to see better during the daylight and to some extent at night with varying degrees of ease and difficulty at closer and farther distances. By simply willing it, Aiko has modified her eyes and her lungs to better help her in the potential situation where she may need flawless response from them. Should they ever not be enough however, she can simply push her ability to empower the part of her body she wants to enhance.
Superb Eyes: Through her years, during her times of training, battle, and strife, Aiko has conditioned a lot of her body to be up to the task should they ever need to aid her. She has put an specially interesting effort on her eyes. By using her cellular transmutation ability, she has made her eyes easily and quite quickly be able to see clearly very far distances of nearly up to two miles. Likewise, she can see microscopic beings by focusing her ability and will in doing so, potentially being able to see clearly extremely minute nanobacteria. By heavily increasing the melanin pigmentation and shrinking the pupil exponentially, she is able to see much clearer during the day, even during extreme sunlight or harsh forms of light. During the night or in areas of pitch black darkness, enlarger quite a bit, and enhances the light sensitive cells allowing the retina a better chance to register what enters the eye, effectively acting as a form of night vision.
Enhanced Respiratory System: Thanks mostly to her cellular transmutation ability, Aiko has enhanced her lungs to aid her in tasks many would find impossible. She is able to hold her breathe and be without oxygen for a near unlimited amount of time. Though she has not tested her limits, it is likely that she may be able to expand her lungs to take and effectively store the amount of oxygen taken to last her nearly forever. In all her previous attempts, she has given up out of boredom, still being able to hold her breath. In places or atmospheres with a decreased availability or near lack of oxygen, her lungs and her overall respiratory system act like an enhanced filter, to a much perfect degree of that found on regular bodies, thus enabling her to safely breath in nearly all environments.
Temperature Manipulation: Throughout her life, Aiko discovered she could easily adapt to any climate, both the very warm, and the very cold. Though her body was simply exhibiting a natural response, she discovered there was more to it, and thus she came onto her ability. Her body, albeit because of this ability, seems to behave quite irregularly. She's often rather cold in very warm climates and very warm in colder climates. Aiko has learned she is capable of easily influencing and manipulating temperature to her well. Her dominion extends onto her body, her environment and atmosphere, inanimate objects, and even other spiritual and nonspiritual beings. By simply willing it, Aiko can force the atmosphere to become rather cold by simply getting rid of the heat in the area. Though she may not quite be able to make it snow, the atmosphere can potentially achieve ice-cold enough temperatures to not need it. Likewise, she may heat up the atmosphere to produce quite warm results. The same can be achieved on objects as she may freely change the temperature present on said object to fit her needs. However, Aiko may not make both hot and cold as only one may be present. Also, because of the striking difference, Aiko must wait two turns after first having increased the temperature before she may decrease it or vice-versa.
On opponents, Aiko may heat up the body or the limb of an opponent enough to cause a burn of varying degrees of severity depending on how much heat she forces on it, and potentially even some internal damage and dehydration. Likewise, drastically reducing temperature could also cause burns and freezing by releasing the heat, and potentially shut down organs inhibit slower movements if the ability is allowed to continue for drawn out amounts of time.
Earthen Goddess: By using her temperature manipulation, Aiko can super heat the air around her creating an air lenses to effectively block off electricity. There's no real visual effect that would allow the opponent to witness when the ability has been activated aside from a much higher degree of temperature around Aiko's body, unless the atmosphere is predominantly warm, perhaps because of her abilities, at which point, noticing the ability as being active would be nearly-impossible. Much like the ability to control temperature that this ability stems out of, it can be kept up for nearly unlimited amounts of time. The ability enables her to fight against foes making use of electricity without fear, as the electrical attacks would be merely blocked off, thus rendering said electrical-based attacks as useless.
Mythical Strands: From a very early age, Aiko would notice that her hair grew steadily at a considerably faster rate than anyone she knew. Its no surprise she has one of the longest, if not the longest hair lengths in Soul Society. During her years of training she would find out her hair was naturally long for a reason. She is able to completely control and manipulate her hair at will. She may grow, stretch, contract, twirl, bend, extend, lengthen, shorten, harden, soften her hair and potentially do nearly anything to it. Every movement of her hair can potentially travel at speeds comparable to bala shots which make her hair-based actions extremely fast. Easily being able to extend or shorten her hair to nearly any distance, she is able to create a variety of offensive attacks by sticking all her hair into one large strand or separating them in a wide variety of individual brands. Likewise, Aiko is able to control the texture and toughness of her hair, making it as soft as cotton or as strong as the toughest of spiritual steels if she so desired. The tips and the edges of the hair can also be manipulated to become rather dull and blunt or extremely sharp easily being able to slice through a plethora of material. Much like muscle fibers wrap with one another to become stronger and capable of stronger feats of power and force, though her hair is strong nearly beyond belief, adding more strands makes her hair even stronger.
Wind Manipulation: Aiko can easily create, control, ride, and manipulate any and every form of wind. Her control over wind extends to the point where can increase and change nearly every aspect of it, making it as sharp and thin as she so desires. Depending on the source and form of attack created by the wind, she can potentially create enormously devastating attacks of incredible brute force. One of the more dangerous aspects of her wind manipulation however, lies in the aspects of it which cannot be easily seen. All of the wind-based attacks are peculiarly precise, easily causing severe cutting and slashing damage. Among the many effects she can create, Aiko has been known to create tornadoes of varying sizes, wind waves of different sizes and degrees of power to get at her opponents. The attacks create a myriad of microscopic wind-blades of near nano-sized proportions that severely damage the body of her opponents on a cellular level and are thus nearly impossible to avoid. The extremely thin and sharp countless wind-blades enter the cells forcefully, even that of stronger surfaces such as hierro, and sever all nerve channels in the body, leaving the foe considerably weaker and unable to move after being struck. The wind-blades are sharp and thin enough that they continue on, and having been reinforced with Aiko's massive reservoirs of reiatsu, get at and disrupt the flow of reiatsu or chi within the body of the opponent, destabilizing it and lowering the amount they can potentially make use of during the battle. At will, she can easily create a large and powerful blast of wind easily capable of destroying the toughest of structures, and even leveling through rocky mountains and leaving nothing but scattered rocks and dust. The winds are strong enough to easily maul foes to nearly unrecognizable levels and even disintegrate most of the area which they hit.
Heat Wave: By combining her temperature and wind manipulation, Aiko can create extremely powerful heat waves. Aside from super heating the air in the battlefield, this ability can have a wide variety of effects. It severely weakens ice abilities and can potentially and with ease dehydrate the opponents, promptly making their skin rough and their lips chap. The steady and progressively increasing temperatures can easily cause mild hallucinations because of the excess heat forced on the bodies of the opponents and if prolonged for large periods of time, the heat exhaustion and dehydration can even make the opponents faint. By spreading the higher temperatures with her wind she can allocate higher temperatures from a distance using her winds and thus tailor the ability to target certain individuals and produce heightened effects on some.
Feline Transmutation: During her time training with Yoruichi, Aiko got a chance to see her transform into a cat several times. It was an ability she found extremely useful and rather cute, and one she wanted to emulate. Thanks to her instructor, she was able to imitate the technique. Aiko is thus able to transform at will into a snow-white cat of equivalent size to Yoruichi. Though the difference in their colors are strikingly different, the two share similar characteristics like being about the same relative size and shapes in regards to their ears. Aiko has discovered she can maintain the transformation for as long as she desires. The form allows her to greatly hide or distort other's perception of her presence since like Yoruichi's, Aiko's transformation deepens the tone of her voice a lot to the point to be confused with a male, and slightly changes the feel of her reiatsu. Therefore, even the most perceptive of individuals would not be able to figure out the cat is truly Aiko unless they had known beforehand. In her cat form, much like her instructor, Aiko can channel her spiritual energy through the body and move at incredibly fast speeds. Though combat is not out of the question in cat form, she is very limited in what she can do. She cannot access her Zanpakutō abilities during her cat form although the natural abilities are fair game. Also, her power is naturally somewhat lower in the cat form, most often reflecting a power of about two tiers below her real potential.

Subject Post 5Subject: Re: Aiko Kyoraku [APPROVED 0-4+] Fri Feb 28, 2014 12:47 am
Background History - Reiatsu Color: Light Blue
- Zanpakutô Spirit Name: Ryujin (龍神, Dragon god)
- Zanpakutô Spirit Appearance:
Ryujin takes the form a gigantic and ferocious blue dragon. Easily reaching and possibly exceeding 1,000 meters in length, Ryujin is many times bigger than Aiko. In fact, his magnitude is such that she is just big enough to be around the same size of one of his eyes. The body is largely blue, with certain areas being predominantly lighter and some darker. There are a plethora of spiky and spinous processes throughout the body of Ryujin, even on its wings. A peculiar characteristic, he also possesses a large amount of fins throughout his body. In its mouth, a nearly countless amount of sharp serrated teeth are present, nearly as sharp as the incredible long and dangerous claws he possesses.
- Inner World:
Aiko's inner world is one that seems to reflect most or at least some of the more vibrant portions of her personality. For the most part, the world is just one gigantic ocean. On the distance, portions of sand can be seen but they are just that, sand. Aside from the rare sandy portions on the distance, there is no land. There's just water and endless ocean. The only structure that can be seen is a lone castle that sits in the center of her world. It is up to Aiko to where she may go or appear in her world. Though sometimes she enjoys visiting the sandy areas or walking atop the endless ocean, she is most often seen wandering the lone and nearly-ghostly corridors of her castle. The atmosphere seems to be perpetually dark and hardly unchanging. It is most often very cloudy and dark from above, with the occasional but rare rays of sunlight filtering from above. It is also quite windy and even a bit cold almost as if a storm and rain were soon approaching.
- Sealed Zanpakutô Apperance :
Much like her personality and some of her abilities, Aiko's Zanpakutō appearance, at least during its sealed state is rather unorthodox-looking. Instead of the typical katana look that most Zanpakutō take, Aiko's takes on the form of her gloves. Once one takes into account just how often she employs her hands during combat for her variety of techniques, it makes sense that her Zanpakutō's sealed form would emulate something that would be of importance and recurrent use to her. The gloves take on a red color that is specially contrasting with the rest of the colors visible on her attire. The gloves look and feel as if they were merely made of fabric, and to the touch, they are even more convincing as if they truly were so. However, that is not entirely true. Though the gloves do indeed behave how any normal clothing would, they are extremely tough and durable as a Zanpakutō should be.
- Sealed Zanpakutô Abilities:
Rising Sun: From her sealed Zanpakutō, her gloves, Aiko can fire very powerful blasts using her fists. She may make extremely powerful energy blasts much like an Arrancar uses a bala or a cero during combat. Likewise, the power of her blasts and their speed are highly dependent on what Aiko wishes them to be but it has been show she is fully capable of creating tremendously devastating attacks and fire them at extremely fast speeds. Though the energy blasts just look like a large beam of energy, if she so wishes, she can focus enough to make the blast resemble a thrusting fist. Because of Aiko's ungodly reservoirs of spiritual energy she can fire devastating attacks nearly indefinitely if she so desired. Likewise, she may choose to allocate the blasts into her hands to be delivered during close combat as a point blank attack.
Morning Sun: Though her spiritual energy is definitely enough, Aiko has always liked to experiment with her abilities and develop new techniques and new boundaries to exceed. By using her temperature and wind manipulation, Aiko has developed quite the peculiar ability. By merely punching the air itself, Aiko can, at will, deliver massively devastating attacks of near-cataclysmic proportions. The wind and heavily increased temperatures infused with her energy cause the blast and torrent of invisible air to become super heated. Therefore, anyone hit or whomever had the chance to nearly dodge the attack would be stricken with the effects albeit varied depending on their proximity. The super heated mass of devastating air collides and slams down on the opponent shredding their bodies with extremely sharp and powerful wind blades that are too numerous to be counted. The excess heat also burns the skin as if the target had spent numerous hours naked under a grueling sun on the summer in the middle of the desert. Dehydration, rough skin, heat stroke and exhaustion are likely to happen rather quickly as well. Likewise, she may choose to allocate the blasts into her hands to be delivered during close combat as a point blank attack.
Fists of the Guardian: Since Aiko's Zanpakutō take on the form of her gloves, her melee attacks are infused with quite a lot of power. Not only are her defenses extremely powerful thanks to the inherent toughness of the Zanpakutō, but her punches are delivered quite strongly and her Zanpakutō just enhances the devastation.
- Release: Emperor of the ocean, rise up and become my weapon. (海の皇帝は、立ち上がって、私の武器になる)
- Shikai Description:
Upon releasing her shikai, it may be strange that Aiko's gloves remain, but given her unorthodox nature, its truly not surprising. However, the gloves remain as merely that, gloves. Her shikai instead materializes into a guandao which is a type of Chinese pole weapon. The shaft or body of her shikai is nearly as large as she is, with only a dragon's head in one end with a blade coming out of its mouth, and a very sharp and pointy end at the other end of the weapon. The weapon is largely gray or silvered-color aside from the slightly darker tonalities of the blade. It is rumored the blade is one of the purest and most magnificent of metals, compared even to jewels. It is difficult for the weapon to be dirtied or stain as even blood on the weapon will easily slide off almost as if wanting to keep the weapon pure.
- Shikai Abilities:
Augmented Spiritual Pressure: Upon release of her shikai, Aiko's spiritual pressure boosts higher than what it once was, resulting in a power many times what had been previously seen. Easily making her reiatsu felt to distances far beyond the reaches of what she could previously accomplish, it is quite the feat to stay near her without succumbing to death out of the pressure and choking, and relentless push down on the body.
Augmented Speed: The speed is one of the traits that gets greatly enhanced during her shikai state. Aiko finds she is many times faster upon release than she once was.l Easily able to outspeed opponents that might have outsped her beforehand, the increase is exponential. Her movements are so fast that some individuals have even seen the after image and blur of her movements long after she has arrived at her destination ready to continue her assault.
Complete Water Dominion: Both in the shikai and the bankai of her Zanpakutō, Aiko has complete access to water techniques. Ryujin is the dragon god with complete dominion over bodies of water and sea storms. Aiko is thus able to create, control, reshape and fully manipulate to do as she wishes. Easily creating structures of pressurized and powerful water blasts or instead using them to create a barrier or walls, the possibilities are nearly endless on what she may do with the water.
Sapphire Phoenix At any time during the battle, Aiko may freely create a gigantic dragon made of water and fire it from the tip of her blade. The dragon is nearly 100 meters in length with a wingspan that spans easily over 200 meters. Though the dragon is completely made of water, it is heavily bested with the massive reiatsu Aiko has infused in it. Therefore, it is extremely difficult to cut down or destroy the Sapphire Phoenix. Upon impacting the target however, the dragon diffuses into the point of impact, delivering a devastating attack which cuts and shreds the opponent from the inside out in a massive point blank attack. Much like the phoenix of legend which rises from its ashes, the Sapphire Phoenix uses the water molecules in the air, or if the otherwise unavailable, those created by Aiko to resurrect and ready for combat once again. Though the phoenix may resurrected and attack nearly indefinitely, it is not so. After the third resurrection, the ability has a two post cooldown before it may be used again.
Water Vortex: Anywhere in the field, whether it be on the ground, any form of surface, or even the air itself, Aiko can create a very large vortex of water that spirals extremely fast. Almost like a black hole, the vortex sucks in the intended target. The vortex is purposely created under the target to better pull in the foe. Upon contact with the enemy, and nearly like a reflex, the edges of the vortex and the ripples of water it creates become extremely sharp, serrated like blades. The water then, at such a devastating degree of power and sharpness shred and cut the opponent delivering very gruesome wounds. Upon absorption, the foe would then be vomited through a similar water vortex that would appear anywhere in the field depending on where Aiko wills it to be.
Raising Dragon: Though Aiko may hold on to her weapon during combat, and for the most part always does, she is able to telekinetically control her weapon so that it hovers around her and travel on its own to any place or direction her mind desires. Thus she is able to block and slash and combat her opponent in nearly every way she wishes whether the weapon its truly held on her hands or kept hovering and traveling elsewhere. Should at any time the weapon be taken from her, it merely materializes and materializes back into her possession.
Year of the Dragon: Much like Aiko can naturally manipulate her hair, this ability allows her dragon spirited Zanpakutō extend its domain to be nearly omnipresent. Her Zanpakutō is easily able to extend, shorten, bend, contract, twist, twirl, cut corners, bounce, and it may do so at extremely fast speeds that overshadow those of the extremely fast bala shots from the Arrancar. Not only is the body or shaft of the weapon blessed with these qualities, but the sharp tip and the blade on each end can also enjoy the benefits. The degree of length and maneuverability to which Aiko can control her weapon have not been tested to the limit but she seems to be able to extend her weapon and manipulated in any way she desires for as long as she wishes and for a nearly-unlimited length. The unique thing about the blade is that, although it can quickly change to achieve the desired wish of Aiko's, it always maintains the extremely tough and sharp power which are expected of her weapon.
Storm Creation: By making use of her water dominion and the power she commands over the wind, Aiko can create a myriad of storms. The effects and the specific effects she creates are many and varied but she does seem to have quite a few favorite. By flooding the battlefield with her water and forcing it up and manipulating it with her wind, she can create extremely large and densely packed and powerful waves. The waves are large enough to rival cataclysmic tsunamis and seem to be quite mighty as forms of attack and defense. Likewise, she has been known to incorporate her wind into her water to increase the speed of rotation of her vortex. In many occasions she has trained to create parallel or perpendicular vortexes at different sides of the opponents. Forcing patterns of extremely sharp jagged blades throughout the vortex she speeds the rotation to nearly unbelievable levels with her wind, exponentially increasing their cutting and wounding power. By continuing to do so, and solidifying two or more vortexes, Aiko has been seen to create extremely powerful tornadoes made of astoundingly sharp blades of wind and even sharper edges of water. The tornadoes have been known to be strong enough to whistand and block nearly any attack and deliver untold damage to those unlucky enough to be caught within its path. Much like the characteristics of tornadoes, the massive winds create a push and suction ability that literally rips trees off their roots, lifts up homes and completely changes the landscape into a scene of total destruction.
Divine Hurricane: Easily one of Aiko's most fearsome techniques, she tries her best not to use it in battle unless she has no choice. The devastating power of this technique knows no end and it would likely endanger more people than she would like and is thus why, reserved for the point of no return. By concentrating her temperature manipulation, she heats up the great reservoirs of water she creates. Once the water has been heated enough, she uses her wind to surge the water up into an spiraling motion. Doing so, she is able to create a gigantic hurricane of cataclysmic proportions. The hurricane is large enough to overshadow a few cities. The winds are strong enough to level mountain ranges and literally reap the life away of those weak enough to be within its reach. Though Aiko stands where she pleases on the hurricane, she is not harmed. Serving as the goddess of water and storm herself, the winds merely phase through her. To her opponents, the combined effects of extremely sharp wind waves and equally sharp propelling water deals demolishing force of death. The power of the hurricane is said to reshape and damage the area and the battlefield in such a way that it is unlikely, save with arduous work and many years, that the effects of her ability on the land would ever heal. Easily able to manipulate the power and the direction of the hurricane, she is able to fight alongside the gigantic cataclysmic force.
- Bankai Description:
Once Aiko goes into her bankai, she undergoes a tremendous change. Her outfit is completely replaced with a more simple and trivial battle garment. On the lower body she wears what looks like a kimono bottom albeit extremely modified. The bottom seems to be predominantly crimson red, and for the most part, it hangs seemingly loose from her waist, easily revealing large portions of her sides and her thighs. A smaller garment, likely of the same material is held underneath, which, although somewhat loose is not so to the extend of the other. Covering her most private area, it rides low enough where interested and perverted eyes might witness the lines and special contours of her body as they near her womanhood. Atop, her breasts are wrapped in bandages which go around her back, with a lone strip dangling down. However, the bandages merely cover the bottom-most part of her breasts, as the upper side, and actually most of her breasts are largely bare and uncovered. Still maintaining her gloves, Aiko also seems to retain the weapon she possesses during her shikai albeit with some minor aesthetic changes to it as well. The shaft or body of the weapon is a much darker tone of silver, almost as if it was quite old. The dragon head at one end of the weapon becomes orange-like in color with an extremely darker shade of gray on the blade nearing a black hue.
- Bankai Abilities:
Augmented Spiritual Pressure: During her bankai, her spiritual pressure surges to the point where it is nearly unrecognizable and attributed to her. if she so wishes, her power is so immense that it is not rare to feel overwhelming spiritual pressure emanating from her even from other countries away. Her spiritual pressure reaches a point where having an effect on the surroundings is no longer relevant. The power she possesses is such that it literally affects the weather and the pattern of the winds and the waves across the world.
Augmented Speed: It would be an understatement to try and classify her speed at this point as being extremely fast. Rarely being able to even been seen or notice long after she has delivered her attacks, Aiko becomes a being of nearly pure speed. Easily blitzing and running circles around some of the fastest beings in the world, her speed is a testament to the power she possesses. It is said that before she even takes a step, the ground begins to crumble and the air to dissipate in anticipation to her steps.
Augmented Water Dominion: On her bankai state, her powers over water completely overshadows the powers she displays during her shikai. Easily being able to summon devastating amounts of water and infusing them with even more energy to create nearly impenetrable fortresses of defense and unnerving attacks, her power over water knows no end.
Augmented Water Vortex: Unlike on her shikai, Aiko can control a lot more power and increase the damage they cause exponentially. She is able to create a myriad of vortexes and thus an equally impressive number of tornadoes by infusing the water with her wind. The size of the tornadoes and vortexes are like giants in comparison to the still imposing sizes displayed during her shikai. They hold a lot more power too, easily shredding through even the toughest defenses and moving at alarming and nearly unreal speeds.
Enhanced Raising Dragon & Year of the Dragon: The degree with which Aiko can control her weapon with her mind its greatly increased. Easily making it slash and cover or block with greater ease, she becomes able to utilize just as easily as she would if it were on her own hands and perhaps, even more. Likewise, the extent to which her weapon may extend, shorten, bend, contract, twist, twirl, cut corners, bounce is greatly enhanced and the speeds at which it does so and travel completely overshadow what was projected during her shikai. With tremendously fast speeds faster than most eyes can see, the movements of the blade are beyond the reaction or reflex of nearly all opponents.
Enhanced Storm Creation & Hurricane: With the increase in power of her bankai, the power of the waves and sea storms she creates increase exponentially. Not only are the waves crashing down on the opponent much bigger and a lot stronger but they speed at which they travel are beyond comparison. Likewise, with her hurricane creation and manipulation, Aiko goes a step further. Easily being able to create two hurricanes of cataclysmic proportions and even up to a maximum of three, she may use them and force them all into the field as they collide with eachother causing extreme destruction. Though she prefers not to do so, she may even combine all three hurricanes into a devastating force of annihilation that would bring chaos and death to nearly anyone that comes into contact with it.
Temple of Nirvana: One of the colossal techniques available to Aiko, it causes huge changes to the field. Bringing forth a majestic an enormous castle that rivals the size of the biggest structures in Soul Society, the castle is surrounded by water as it floods the surroundings, gradually raising the water level. From all sides of the castle, flowing water rains down like a waterfall further adding water onto the field. Though the number of waterfalls have never been counted, there are easily over five. From one or any number of them, Aiko may force extremely strong attacks that have extremely devastating consequences upon impact. Also, the castle works as an invigorating buff of sorts as whenever it is present, not only do Aiko's water based abilities gain a tremendous increase in their power, but also Aiko's speed and spiritual pressure surge to even higher levels. Though the castle can definitely be targeted and harmed, the endless flow of water, both from Aiko, from the castle itself, and the flooding, continually repair the castle in a never ending cycle not very different than the water cycles. Thus the castle will always remain as is so long as Aiko is alive or until she decides to call it back.
Water Fiend: Lurking around as soon as the castle has been created, Aiko can call and summon the water fiend at any time she pleases. The water fiend manifests itself as a massively large two headed dragon seemingly made of a body of water. The dragon stands nearly as tall as the castle. Though the dragon indeed looks to be made of water, it is tightly pressurized and united with energy in such a way that it can whistand the strongest hits without caving down and deliver equally devastating attacks. Though it possesses an extremely strong tail and claws, it is its teeth which tend to be the most frightening as he mouth has nearly half a thousand of extremely sharp and serrated teeth. Should the fiend in any way be cut down or destroyed, a new set of heads would appear, with more obstacles for the opponent to deal and engage in battle with. The dragon remains in the battlefield so long as the castle remains, and since the castle is a manifestation of Aiko's will to fight, both remain present so long as she is alive or otherwise calls them back.
Initially, Aiko was very adamant and stubborn, refusing to want anything to do with the Phantomtech. However, with time, and after seeing the potential beneficial effects, she gave in to it. Her husband had some form of it installed, and in an attempt to continue to be toe to toe with him she decided to go through with it. Tsubasa aside, her position and the great power she held meant that one day, likely soon, she would be forced to engage in battle for the safety of her people. And when the day came, she would be ready. With the influence of Tsubasa, and partly because of her own great power, she was allowed many specifications and reservations that most did not.
- Phantom Tech Abilities:
Extremely stronger skeleton and tissues: With her Phantomtech brain, Aiko is easily able to rush many things within her body. She is able to exponentially increase the works of her osteocytes, osteblasts, and osteoclasts. In doing so, Aiko has made her skeletal system become extremely stronger. Not only does it allow her to deliver extremely stronger attacks during hand to hand combat in melee range but also an increased in power with the swings of her weapon. Likewise, the increase in the ostecytes and osteblasts allow her to easily repair her bones should they ever be broken. Though her cellular transmutation ability already allows her to do so, the phantom tech merely heightens it and hastens the ability. On her skin, the phantom tech allows her to manipulate her body to increase coagulation and the karetanization of her skin to more quickly close an open wound and prevent blood loss. Though this is also something that she already does through cellular transmutation, the phantom tech merely hastens and enhances the accuracy and speed of the effects.
Increased Reflexes: By using the phantom tech brain to rush neurotransmitters throughout her body, Aiko can perceive and more readily react to actions taken by others. Being able to motion nearly all voluntary movements at such an speed that they seem to be merely reflex, she is able to dodge and evade attacks of great speed from very close distances without a worry.
- Phantom Tech Powers:
Temporal Dimension:At any point during or outside of battle Aiko can create a portal that looks to be like a black door with her name on it. It is a holographic projection that doubles as a unique portal. It only allows access to Aiko inside no matter the tinkering or the technological prowess of her opponent. Once she has stepped inside the black door, she enters her own personal dimension and dominion. Within, the space seems to be nearly endless as it spawns miles and miles as if it could be filled with things forever. Inside however, aside from the lone existence of Aiko, there are millions of fairly medium sized folders arranged in circles that stack into the distance, with the door she came through staying in the middle. If Aiko were indeed to use the power during combat and the door were to be destroyed, creating another one to exit or enter is fairly simple, requiring only a subtle motion. The space within acts like a further and more specialized extension of her brain. The brain, though some may be more developed than others are not perfect. Even Urahara and Tsubasa's whose intellect and reasoning skills are unlike nearly any other, do not have perfect minds as even they may make mistakes quite often and forget things. Aiko is no different, but her specially extension of her brain, is not. Basically, as she wishes, Aiko may enter her own dimension regularly and store or share information. If there was an extremely aggravating and sad time in her life she just would rather not remember, she would store the file in one of the folders in her dimension and simply retrieve it and relive the experience a different time if she ever wished to. Likewise, she may share memories and content on her brain and her dimension just to have to copies. It is also in her own dimension where she stores the information from battles and new abilities and techniques displayed by others. It helps her analyze techniques and further enhance and create her own, as well as go back into the memories of the past and further study them. Retrieving anything is fairly simple. If she has shared the information and recalls it, simply willing it will make the specific older sprout into different chains and lines spreading the information neatly with other organized information that may be of interest. If it is instead something she does not recall, simply willing it will name the database for easy location and relocation of similar information. Though she may create as many doors as she wishes at any given time and maintain them, given the focus required on battle, she may only keep a maximum of three doors active at any time.
