Hair: Izanagi has a unique hair style. His hair is long and navy, at times it looks black and at others it looks rather dark blue. The long hair, closely reaches his shoulders where it rests. It’s an inheritance from his father’s side of the family, even though the old man is deceased, the trademark remains in Izanagis genes hence why most members of his family have the similar black or navy coloured hair. On regular days, his hair hangs effortlessly while a thick strand of hair covers a part of his forehead; this strand is noticeable on both sides of the head and is usually moved out of the way in severe situations.
Eyes: Izanagis eyes are brown, a characteristic that differs him from his parents who had blue or green eyes. His brown eyes look ever so peaceful and blend effectively with his attire. The brown eyes are often unseen as he remains covert large majority of the time; however when they are seen, they portray both peace and sanctity.
Facial Features: Izanagi has no distinct facial features but one thing that’s commonly noticed is his perfectly straight teeth. He never wore braces as in his time they weren’t an option, therefore his perfect teeth have to have been genetically inherited as his daughter seems to have the same perfectly aligned teeth.
General Composition Of The Body: Izanagi has a well looked after body. It’s well-built and slender. His abdomen is strictly maintained and toned to an 8 pack; in combination with this, his biceps are well maintained and his body is rather muscular. He has lived for a thousand years and hundred years in he noticed that not keeping one’s body in tip top condition began impacting on performance hence why he trained and exercised for exhausting periods of time in order to maintain the toned, solid body. Izanagi is around 6ft 2 and still rather muscular for such a height. He weighs roughly 75KG which puts him at normal weight be some books and underweight by others.
Standard Attire: Izanagis general attire consists of a loose full body outfit that is navy in color. It reaches from his neck to his ankles, coming to an end at either wrist or either ankle. It’s navy in color which contrasts with the crimson armor that he wears above the loose clothing. The loose clothing allows for insane flexibility while the armor works as both a training mechanism and a great defense. The armor itself is made from an isomer of Titanium which makes it much lighter but ten times as durable; even though it still weights quite a lot Izanagi has gotten used to it. He can move at his full potential with the armor on, but when he removes it he can move that extra bit faster. The armor branches across his shoulder blades and covers his chest almost like an advanced Kevlar; it’s loose in design but is regularly tightened by Izanagi. The fabric of the navy jump suit is capable of coping with the Shunko release.
Wise: Izanagi is a wise individual. He has endured a lot over the thousand years of his life and has experienced a lot too at the same time. His wise judgments were often acknowledged by the head of the Zero Division at the time, Ceon Clixx-Kimaru. He often guided the man and re-assured him in times of uncertainty. His knowledge and endless years of experience have made him an excellent judge of character and a respectable Shinigami. Because of his general knowledge and wise personality, he was deemed to be the Wisdom of the Spell as both the Soul King and the Head of the Zero Division were sure that his judgment and recommendation would be sufficient enough for recruitment of potential candidates.
Throughout his time at the Zero Division, he has been seen giving advice and support to the Head of the Zero Division at the time. He aided the man and comforted him with insight and reassurance. This quality had been inherited from his Grand Father prior to the man’s death; he was also wise though over the years this specific quality had improved to the point where he could apply his knowledge to a majority of situations. At times, he was known for providing subtle yet conclusive judgments, even when Ceon aimed to leave he helped him stay strong and focused; eventually, Izanagi was the one to watch Ceon leave.
Upon the departure of the Head, he knew that it served a valuable experience. In the future he would know how to deal with those who wanted to leave and possibly convince them to stay. None of his children to date have shown signs of this characteristics but he hopes that one of his sons will.
Kind and Caring: Izanagi is a rather kind individual. Throughout his time as a Shinigami for the Gotei 13, he aided the 13th Division, where he taught new comers and helped them improve in a way that was best suitable to them. He always allowed individuals to come to him with any problems they had and aimed to deal with them to the best of his abilities. H helped those who were injured and even regularly ventured into Rukongai to help the homeless by providing some food and showing his Students why they should care for others.
He made it his duty to deliver food to the districts of Rukongai that lacked nourishment. No one but his Students were aware of the fact that he hated eating while knowing there were others out there who were starving or thieving for food; it was true that not everyone got hungry, only those who had spiritual energy did. However, as time passed more and more of these individuals began arriving in Rukongai thus a lot of them had to be fed. With him becoming a member of the Zero Division now, he entrusted the deliveries to his Students.
He seems to be kind to everyone, friend or foe alike. He believes in fairness and thus gives everyone who picks a fight with him an opportunity to either apologize or surrender. He gives three clear warnings prior to beginning as he simply doesn’t like to harm others without a just cause. This was first noticed when he fought against Kaname Tousen, he offered the man three distinctly identical chances to withdraw from the battle but once Kaname attacked, Izanagi brought his life to an end. He did this in the least painful method possible.
While serving as the 5th Division Captain and Kido Corps Commander, he performed a Kido to aid the 9th Divisions Arts and Culture. This Kido was to increase the rate of growth for the plant life prior to entering a state of permanent agelessness. The Kido was created because of his desire to preserve all living things, his care for others and kindness was one of his most distinct characteristics that followed closely before his wise, it’s something that he applies to both family life and every day work.
Peaceful: Izanagi is a peaceful individual, he wishes no harm on the creations of the Soul King and thus aims to protect anyone under the protection of both the Gotei 13 and the Zero Division. It may be true that Izanagi isn’t too fond of other chaotic and antagonistic races however, he bestows judgment upon them in a manner he sees fit. He never acts barbaric and frowns upon that form of behavior.
His general desire for peace originates from his childhood. Growing up within the times of War was tiring and painful for Izanagi. His mother had to raise him and his brother alone while his father fought on the battle field. The man survived the First World War, but in the second, he wasn’t as fortunate. With the delivery of the MIA letter, Izanagi and his brother ventured to the front lines to find him, after a year search they did. This was where Izanagi had died, he sacrificed his own life in the hopes of protecting those dear to him. If he went through that pain while at such young age, he couldn’t come to imagine what children and families within warring countries felt or acted like.
It was a painful time; he was young and watched his neighbors grieve about their lost family members. He prayed for the passing of the war on daily bases which is why in the current day and age he only seeks out peace. His desire for peace genuinely reinforces his Wisdom as it’s among the man reasons as to why he joined the Zero Division, in order to maintain peace.
It was a painful time for him and he can relate to how the civilians and other individuals feel in times of grieving and death hence why he only seeks out peace. His desire for peace genuinely reinforces his Wisdom as it’s among the main reasons that he joined the Zero Division, to maintain peace…
Strict: Izanagi is rather strict in the presence of his children because some of them seem to get themselves into mischief. Take Izanami for example, the girl tends to fight with anything she sees because of her enjoyment of combat and pain; when Izanagi is present he tends to issue instructions to her while sounding much stricter than usual and regularly, the children listen. He wants the best for his children and family thus raising them under a strict upbringing would aid their development in his opinion as they would differentiate the right from wrong and know how to behave in certain situations.
He doesn’t accept insolence from his children and thus addresses them with a strict tone when they have done something displeasing. He believes that raising them in a strict environment will allow for them to be better and more accomplished Shinigami though with him being busy with his duties he never managed to reinforce his principles through their childhoods and only managed to set the grade when the kids had already aged a few years.
Leader like: He spent a lot of his time with the Zero Division Leader, Ceon Clixx-Kimaru, the man who possessed amazing leadership qualities. Over time, the very same qualities began rubbing off on Izanagi. He looked up to that man because of his strive for maintaining peace, a prime example of the man maintaining the said peace was when the rogue Shinigami Sosuke Aizen rebelled against the Gotei 13 and attempted to ascend to the realm of the Soul King. The man took it into his own hands to stop the adversary and did so ever so gracefully.
Upon the departure of the Leader and the founding of his clan, he knew that Leadership was an influential factor in running the clan effectively and almost instantly took notice of his improved leadership qualities that aid him to this day.
Izanagis Relations With Others:
Ceon Clixx-Kimaru: Izanagis relationship with Ceon is strange. He thinks of him as his younger brother though in terms of age Ceon is older. Some aspects about Ceon remind him of his brother hence why they tend to have a great relationship with one another. Over time, they seemed to develop a mutual respect for one another. They often aimed to improve together even though Ceon was stronger at the time, he felt obliged to the man for nominating him to join the Zero Division, but the hundreds of years of close friendship brought him to the point where he enjoys his presence and likes to talk and interact with him.
Izanami Shinsui: He shares a close bond with his daughter. He loves her and is really protective over her. He doesn’t want her to get hurt and tends to be rather strict toward her. The girl tends to attract mischief and more often than not breaks into fights which Izanagi finds amusing as he can’t determine who she picked up such a personality from. He’s really warm toward the girl and always greats her with open arms; she is his daughter after all and he values family a hell of a lot. He tends to tease her a little by not allowing her to do what she wants to but in the end its all for her benefit.
Yozora Shinsui: Izanagi wouldn't classify his bond with his son close because of his absence in childhood. However, Izanagi loves his son as the rest of his family and while his son acts a little rebellious, he still respects him and rest of the members of the Gotei 13. Izanagi knows that Yozora is capable of taking care of himself hence why Izanagi hasn't bound anything to protect him. Unlike Inazami, he seemed to have received a personality that slightly resembled that of Izanagi. He tends to spend more time with his son because of the weak bond that he hopes to strengthen.
P A S S I V E - A B I L I T I E S
Shinsui Style – Kido: Over the years, Izanagi has developed his alternate style of using the standard shinigami abilities. He can mentally recall and recite more than one incantation for a Kido at a time which allows him to reinforce more than one attack at any one time. He believes that his styles are both stronger and better suited to him. Firstly, over the years Izanagi has created his own alternate versions of the standard Kido that was taught in the academy. His kido are unique in a sense that they can’t be absorbed; this is because of Izanagis Yin Yang abilities. He incorporates one(Yin) or the other(Yang) into his Kido so if ‘one’ attempts to absorb it then it disrupts the Yin Yang flow within the individual or the item that’s absorbing it. If a living being absorbs one of his techniques. They will often begin suffering mental and physical imbalance; most may not be able to channel the required energy into an attack thus making it much weaker or useless. Similarly, it effects passive abilities that use energy, for example if an individual attempted to heal themselves then it may not be fast nor successful; the possibility of the malfunctioning healing also originates from the imbalance in Yin and Yang as the individual will have a hard time altering the attributes of the energy in order to trigger the healing. Similarly some individuals will have a hard time releasing their Zanpakutō or comparable abilities as they tend to incorporate a large release of energy. It’s not impossible; however the individual may suffer from fluctuating energy levels and lack the oomph that they would usually have. As for barrier techniques or anything along those lines, the initial stage of the barrier would be infected by the imbalance forcing it to shatter or decompose and allowing the attack to continue on its trajectory. All forces originate from the Yin and Yang principle and thus the imbalance of one effect the other and in this case the addition of one will drastically affect the other and lead to a spiritual imbalance. Because of this concept his Kido tend to be far more destructive than regular Kido thus over time he has learned to release three stages of Kido each varying by power.
Stage 1: This Stage is the weakest of the three but is still considerably stronger than the standard Kido that the majority of Shinigami use. While in the first stage, his Kido tend to be 3-4 times as powerful as regular Kido attacks; this is because Izanagis Kido are constructed differently and receive more power than techniques of regular Kido practitioners. Izanagi has spent decades perfecting his Kido so it’s no wonder that it has reached this level. With it being his primary fighting style, he improves it on daily bases and has gathered quite a unique arsenal of Kido. On average, Danku would be able to guard against his Kido near the 1 to 40 range while within this stage.
Stage 2: In this stage, the Kido are amplified through reinforcement with released energy. Izanagi begins to scrape the surface of his Kido capabilities by adding a touch more energy for much more power. While in this stage of Kido, the attacks that rain down on the opponent are seen to be 8-10 time stronger than the Kido of standard practitioners. It’s noted that his Kido overpowers those of similar level because of his different stages; he excels in this field and thus has to keep it in it as powerful as the rest of his being. On average, Danku would be able to guard against his Kido that were within the 1-20 range.
Stage 3: This stage is far more dangerous than the previous two combined. He has only been seen using this stage once and that was against his fight with Kaname Tousen. In this stage, he begins to channel more power into his Kido; the power from his reserves drastically improves the power of the Kido, it’s un-paralleled in this stage and because of its potency, Izanagi refrains from using it unless the situation is dire. On average the Bakudo 81 Danku wouldn’t be able to guard against any of his Kido.
Additionally, a unique addition to his Kido prowess is the fact that he doesn’t have to say the incantation out loud in order for full force of an attack to be released. He was well aware that the brain thinks much faster than we chant and thus after years of intense training, he managed to reach a state where he recalls the incantation through the aid of his eidetic memory and instantly applys it. His eidetic memory, allows him to remember information and scenarios word for word, inch by inch; this allows him to recall an incantation for a Kido and use the ‘thought’ as the incantation instead of the speech.
Finally, Izanagi has a unique talent for depicting the methods behind unique Kidos. If he witnesses a nonstandard Kido more than twice then he can potentially recreate the energy and pattern of the spiritual constructs in order to mimic the ability that had been used against him. He doesn’t do this on regular bases; however he remembers all the Kido that he sees and can call upon the memory at a later day for more practical convenience.
Shinsui Style – Hakuda: Secondly, he has an alternate version of Hakuda, it’s not really an alternate version, more of a fighting style in this case. His Hakuda style consists of fast and powerful blows. He manipulates his energy reserves and amplifies them the instant before collision in order to deal the maximum potential damage. He utilizes this style by releasing energy at either the elbow: heel or rear of the shoulder in order to increase the speed of his attacks and deal out potent attacks. His fighting style is rather dangerous because of the pin point precision. His punches don’t spread the impact over the surface area; they direct the impact into one point in order for the full force to be felt. Over the years he improved his fighting style in order to accommodate his Shunko. He aims to end the fight quickly and flawlessly as over time the opponent would end up suffering more and more pain, something that Izanagi resents. Hakuda is his tertiary fighting style which he began improving after working with Ceon Clixx-Kimaru; the man taught him the Shunko and in order to perfect it his Hakuda had to be on point!
Shinsui Style – Zanjutsu: Izanagis Zanjutsu style is authentic. He believes in balance hence why his Zanpakutō developed into the raw symbol of Balance, Yin and Yang. Because of this Blade, he wields his Zanpakutō both gracefully and effortlessly. When using the Shinsui Style of Zanjutsu, a white aura coats his body; the aura closely resembles that of Shunko but it isn’t. As the white Aura encases his body his blade receives additional cutting power. It allows him to effortlessly cut through any defenses that are on a same or weaker level to his Zanjutsu capabilities. As his blade cuts it leaves fractions of the white aura behind so that the injured area can’t be healed with the application of Kido or energy; the white aura negates external powers when on an opponent’s wound thus giving them a tough time and even partially toying with their regenerative capabilities. Izanagi doesn’t aim to prolongue needless combat hence why he creates an imbalance of energy when cutting the opponent. With the imbalance, Kido or Energy don’t work in the same way while used on the wounded area thus preventing most people from healing when cut by his blade. With the lack of regenerative capabilities, they are no longer evading the inevitable and allow for the fight to end quicker. Because of his knowledge of the blade, his capable of striking specific areas in order to parry the attacks prior to countering. Because of his speed and grace in general, his attacks and defenses acts a whole collective and are thus more fluent.
Shinsui Style – Hoho: Izanagi tends to use the regular Hoho, however his style consists of a combination of light and Oken. To begin with, he can surround his body with light and travel at the same speed as a light wave. This is because of lights rapid speed; by surrounding himself in light he makes his body a component of the light and travels anywhere the light can reach. His Hoho style is different in a sense that he can jump from the Kings Realm to any other location in the blink of an eye; similarly, he can return to the Kings Realm in a flash. Oken grants passage into the Kings Realm; with him being blessed by the Soul King and his innate manipulation of the light gives an incredible amplification of speed. At times, Izanagi releases light prior to performing the Shunpo, the sudden burst usually causes the opponents eyes to readjust while he unfolds his attack. Izanagis personal style of Hoho was developed over hundred years as was each other style thus he has attained perfection in the styles and can utilize them innately.
Oken: Izanagi possess the same passive ability that all members of the Zero Division have the pleasure of receiving. His bones have been blessed by the Soul King himself, allowing him and other members of the Zero Division to ascend to the Kings Realm. These can’t be stolen nor artificially created, some have tried but those who even remotely begin to pose a threat to the Soul King himself often get killed. Oken is the very soul of the being, Izanagis Oken also allows him to give access to the Kings Realm to other individuals who he sees fit to ascend. With him being the Wisdom of the Spell and a great judge of character he has been entrusted with the ability to allow others to ascend for short periods of time. With a touch of the hand he can give individuals the right of passage for the period of time that he sees fit. To date, he hasn’t given anyone the right to ascend.
Eidetic Memory: Izanagi has an Eidetic Memory, he remembers and recalls all events from the age of four. His Eidetic Memory allows him to recall information: fine details: smells: tastes and feelings from previous memories thus giving him impressive abilities of recall. His Eidetic Memory plays a key part in his Kido as he recalls the incantation for a Kido which in effect uses it as a chant; pretty nifty some would say. Izanagi is clever and has an extra ordinary mind, with his capabilities he can quite quickly discern the opponent’s abilities and remember faces of individuals that he had met.
Spiritual Suppression: Izanagi is often seen while looking over both the Gotei 13 and the Seireitei. After being entrusted to look after Neviah Clixx-Kimaru, he devised a spiritual suppression technique that wipes his existence by totally suppressing his spiritual prowess. In this state he appears to have less spiritual pressure than that of a human and can’t possibly be detected. The suppression rids him of his smell and prevents any form of tracking from finding him. In combination with this, he often bends light around his being in order to seem completely invisible while checking over Neviah or the Gotei 13 in general. It removes all traces of his presence thus not even the best are able to detect him even while his stood by their side. It’s a mysterious technique that can be kept active for long periods of time due to no residual effects, however Izanagi only activates it while in the presence of others as he can control how low he wants his spiritual pressure to seem; his spiritual pressure without the suppression is both overwhelming and crippling hence why he takes precautions prior to visiting the Soul Society.
Passive Regeneration: Izanagi has a passive ability by which he uses the photons in the light surrounding his body; he converts the photons into energy and uses them to heal his wounds. Some wounds heal faster than others however over time most of not all wounds are healed without leaving a single scar. Small to Medium sized cuts heal almost instantly while larger cuts take a post to heal depending on size and depth. The loss of limbs requires two posts to heal because of the severity, after the initial post, the limbs usually reattached however it takes an additional post for the severed nerves to be healed and allow the arm to function again. He can apply this ability to others as it gives off a similar vibe to that of Orihimes healing methods; it does to some extent return the flesh or body back to the previous state if the components are present but if not new parts are constructed through the escalation of the rate of mitosis.
Crippling Spiritual Pressure: As mentioned before, without suppression, Izanagi possesses crippling spiritual pressure that shatters and breaks down the surrounding area because of its raw power and quantity. He hardly ever releases the full extent of his spiritual pressure as some people tend to feel heavier and have trouble breathing while others freeze because of their incapability of processing mentally processing the power. It messes with people which are why he refrains from accessing the crippling end of his spiritual pressure. To date, he has never been brought to the point of using it; however it has sheer potential to wipe city large quantity of land mass from the face of creation. Due to his love for all creations and peace he refrains from using it in this context as it’s both devastating and unjust. Because of his crippling spiritual pressure, it’s often hard to cut into his skin as a thin layer of spiritual pressure remains atop his skin and acts as a thin yet powerful layer of defense; he could be compared to Kenpachi Zaraki in terms of his resilience to damage and durability.
Heightened Strength: Unlike most individuals, Izanagi has heightened strength as in the past he exchanged quantities of his spiritual pressure for raw strength. In the past he had a lot of excess spiritual pressure, it was so vast that he couldn’t contain it; it made even the walls of the Seireitei shake in his presence. Eventually, he was offered an exchange of Spiritual Power for alternate prowess, because of his lack of strength; he decided to exchange his excess spiritual pressure for heightened Strength. This in combination with his Hakuda make for a rather potent as the combination allows him to break bones with ease. Over the years however, the quantity of his spiritual pressures ascended once again though he is now in a much stronger condition to be able to control and suppress it.
Sharp Speed: Izanagi is said to have sharp speed. The sharp speed is a reference to his intellect and general rapid reaction time. He has trained his mind and body to act and react as one whole unit. Because of this his body responds much faster than usual; upon sensing an attack his body’s already mobilized and taking action which shows the true extent of his training. Because of the tiresome training he underwent, his attack and reaction speed tend to be distinguished easily as their inhumane. You see, when you have decades to train to perfection you utilize it and even before his death he trained in order to protect his family and bring peace to his nation. Even though he was unsuccessful, his training didn’t go to waste and was applied when he trained to become a Shinigami. His sharp speed also incorporates his thinking time, he is known to have had an unmatched IQ, that in combination with his eidetic memory allow him to both think and react as fast as possible thus minimizing the time between action and reaction.
A R S E N A L OF K I D O
SAI - 1: Izanagi can perform Sai on individuals who are on his level in terms of power or weaker. His Sai restrains them while covering the wrists of the victim in a navy color; the navy color absorbs energy that is being used to break free. Those with understanding of Kido would be able to break free eventually as would those who are stronger, however he can use it on multiple people at once and usually uses it when he wants to seize the fighting. When the navy colored Reshi covers the wrists of the victim it begins to make them feel hundreds of times heavier thus making it harder to break free.
Kakushitsuijaku - 1: By extending his right or left index finger, Izanagi can formulate the Kido Kakushitsuijaku and begins to track an individual his looking for. This is on a miniature scale In comparison to the actual technique however it’s as effective and efficient.
Kuyō Shibari - 1: Izanagis Kuyo Shibari One only forms one circle which is blue in color instead of the regular 9. This circle is formed upon contact with the chest and once there it immobilizes the opponent by releasing energy into their body and preventing the signals from the brain being delivered to the motor neurons thus immobilizing their body.
Tenteikura - 1: Tenteikura 1 is a technique through which Izanagi can create a one way link between his mind and another’s. From there he can communicate with the individual on the other side however he is often mistook for being the subconscious of the individual hence why Izanagi uses it to bestow his wisdom upon those who seek it.
Tenteikura note: All of Izanagis Tenteikura abilities allow him to connect with the those who he has met in the past regardless of their location. Tenteikura - 2: Tenteikura 2 creates a direct link between Izanagi and all of the members of the Zero Division. That’s the 2nds First Stage. Through there he can communicate to the members and allow for some to talk back by granting them permission within the technique; in effect he creates a large conference call and issues instructions to the members or explains situations. In the Second Stage of Tenteikura 2, he can link himself to all of the Captains of the Gotei 13 while providing them information all at once.
Tenteikura - 3: Tenteikura 3 allows him to create a two way connection between himself and another individual in order to converse with them conveniently. These individuals are usually people who he has met before as he finds it easy connecting himself to others regardless of their locations.
Tenteikura - 4: This version of Tenteikura allows him to connect directly to any member of his family in order to either issue instructions or check up on them because of his busy daily schedule.
Danku 1 : This is similar to regular Danku but it takes on the appearance of Izanagis body. This version forms a solid outer shell to his body with the same energy that creates the regular Danku. Over time, he noticed that Bakudo were hard to fend off, however with Danku one, it would be the Severing Void that would be entrapped in the Bakudo and not his body thus allowing him time to escape.
Bakudo 98 Raitoningu: This Kido, covers Izanagis hand or arm with dense and powerful spiritual pressure. So powerful in fact that hes able to meet on coming Zanpakutō with the palm of his hand and not be dealt a scratch. This technique is powerful because it absorbs the impact from the attack which in effect strengthens it, but with the impact removed the blade is stopped in its tracks while the navy palm holds the blade in place. If an individual attempted to push against the navy palm then they would come to an end when the blade touched the outer shell of the navy reishi, some, who are more powerful or close to Izanagis level have the ability to cut through the reishi after some effort, while those who are drastically weaker lack the ability to cut him.
100th Kido Series:
This is essentially Kido that are above the 100s range in terms of numbering and strength. None have been used by Izanagi yet but only one has been created for this series thus far.
Bakudo XXX - Gisei Hadō - Shi o umidasu(EVENT ONLY): This is a sacrificial Kido where Izanagi sacrifices either arm in order to unwillingly summon the Gates of Hell. The technique uses the Oken within his bones in order to trigger the summoning of the gates of hell. This technique is a final resort and only to be used against the worst of individuals. The victim to this technique has to be beyond evil otherwise the sacrifice will be for nothing. Izanagis arm decomposes and summons forth the Gates of Hell; as the doors to hell open chains fly forth and entangle the individual. As the chains entangle the victim, a large scythe strikes them down and absorbs their power. As the energy is absorbed the chains get stronger and begin yanking them down into hell. The user of this technique has to be very cautious as those who lack a pure heart while around the gates will also be sucked in hence why he would only resort to using it if it was both a one on one fight and there was no other choice. If the victim begins to resists, the skeletons of his victims will arise from the gates and begin taking hold them prior to siphoning their will to carry on and dragging them into the endless darkness.
Bakudo 101 - Chitanboido: Chitanboido is a technique that without incantation forms a solid barrier that can receive impact in a similar manner to Bakudo 81 Danku. This however, is a stronger version of it and without incantation it can withstand Kido or similar alternatives up to Hadō 110. The overwhelming impact is spread across the surface area and designated to move around the barrier thus keeping the caster safe. However, with the application of the incantation, it can still withstand attacks up to Hadō 110 or those of similar power but will also absorb the attacks and re-emit them at a later convenience.
Hadō 101 - Tengoku katakata kemono: This kido is formed from the released energy around Izanagis body. The reishi and general energy to gathered to create a large skull like figure. The more energy it attains the stronger it gets, eventually the figure will start to form skin because of the amounts of energy it has received. Then, in a single instant, the Kido explodes. It erupts into raw energy, decimating the surrounding area; it can be compared to a nuclear explosion but in terms of Kido its closely compared to Itto Kasso because of its raw destructive capabilities. Those who are directly underneath the Kido are the only ones within the area that are protected. Other than that, the vast majority are done for.
Hadō 102 - Akuma Kiyanon: This Kido has been closely linked to the Arrancar Cero because of its similar principles. This technique, allows Izanagi to release a large load of navy energy that's really concentrated. Because of the contraction of energy to surface area ration it acts as a large scale incinerator but on a smaller scale. Those who attempt to guard against the attack will soon find it futile. Essentially, it acts to leave nothing in its path, much like a Cero. Its called the Devils Canon because of the large scale of destruction it causes in its path. More often than not, its used in the air so that the houses and buildings in its path aren't incinerated.
Hadō 103 - Raionzudomein: This Kido, conjured five orange lions that arise around Izanagis body. Each has fangs formed from Reishi and have overwhelming speeds. In their natural habitats, these specific lions would outrun Cheetahs which saws their ascension in speed. The five lions begin to move in order to form a pentagon, if at any point the opponent is trapped within said pentagon, they are done for. As they enter the pentagon, a solid shield of Bakudo 102 forms connecting the lions together and forming the solid pentagon. Then, the Lions will open their mouths and the fangs will decompose while their mouth glows brighter and brighter. Then, a large and precise mean of energy escapes the mouths of the tigers and decomposes the opponents body. The decomposition works by the Reishi in the fangs being altered to break down other reishi so over a few seconds the energy within ones body will begin to get externally removed. Some who survive this tend to look much older than usual, their bones are more frail and more often than not, they are forced to retreat.

Artist: N/A - Song: N/A - Word Count: N/A
Z A N P A K U T O | I N F O R M A T I O N
Zanpakutō Name: Kokujū & Hakujū Zanpakutō Shikai Name: Hikari no haō Zanpakutō Bankai Name: Onmyō no dominion Zanpakutō Shikokai Name: Hikari to yami no soburin Reiatsu Color: Navy Zanpakutō Release Command: Rule – Hakujo/Kokuju Zanpakutō Inner World: Izanagis Inner World differs from most as its separated into two halves. On one half, there is a lot of wild life, trees, plants and color in general; the whole landscapes covered in green grass and is separated from the other side by light. The ruler of that side of Hakujo, his natural presence accelerates the rate of grown of the plants within his side of the inner world, his peaceful and can often be seen sleeping on the grass; the grass it self is as soft as a thousand pillows while the whole habitat works and cherishes Hakujo almost like a king of the jungle. The one weird aspect of the inner world is that it has other animals that have nothing to do with the Zanpakutō spirits.
The other side of the Inner World, is covered in darkness. Its black to the bone and a moon shines over that general area. Atop a cliff resides Kokuju, the whole area is decimated by his power and nothing but ruble remains by his side. His darkness doesn't prevent the growth of plants and keeps his side just the way he likes it. At the center of that side, lays a deep cave within which Kokuju sleeps.
Both of Izanagis spirits, Hakujo the female and Kokuju the male diverge from his personality somewhat. At times, they're rather calm and as long as one of the spirits doesn't cross over to the others side, they remain neutral and calm. At times, they get rather combat orientated, the duo assume the Appearance of two Wolfs; the first Hakujo is white and is supposed to resemble Yin while the second, Kokuju is black and set to represent the Yang. Alone, the duo are rather stubborn and don't tend to listen to one another without Izanagis presence. When Izanagi first met them within his Inner World, they were cubs and they still fought and argued one another for Izanagis respect and care. There is a time when the duo can cross the threshold of each others domain and that is when Izanagi is present. They're rather caring and love their master, he wouldn't compare them to dogs but they are as loyal if not more so than German Shepard. They do a lot to protect they're master while aiding him in early stages of development. The appearance of the duo changes in each release; Hakujo begins to get engulfed with a white aura and forms wings made of light while within the Shikai, while Kokuji receives large fangs and claws.
Destructive Spiritual Presence: With ever release of his Zanpakutō, Izanagis spiritual pressure heightens. As mentioned earlier, because of the destructive capabilities of his spiritual power, he tends to keep it sealed or suppressed however when releasing his Zanpakutō there are fractions that can no longer be suppressed because of the overwhelming quantities at which point the ground beneath him begins to shatter while the earth itself quakes in fear. Because of his ascension of spiritual pressure, a swing of a blade can often level fractions of a town; this is because his spiritual pressure allows no room for air resistance but when Izanagi moves his blade the pressure that has built up around his body from the release escapes into the directions of his swing thus shattering and obliterating buildings in seconds. He doesn’t intend for his Zanpakutō to have such destructive capabilities which is why he doesn’t swing the Zanpakutō all too often while released; he knows better than anyone the consequences of the damage.
Canon Drop: Canon drop is an ability that Izanagi can use while his Zanpakutō is within its sealed state. He has locations around the Zero Division HQ marked and in those locations, he can summon bright circles of light, each light has a different color and each color represents the Reiatsu Color of a Member of Zero Div. Individuals can’t enter the Drop Zone of others, they can only enter their own. When the member is ready and stands in the light, another area is marked either in the Soul Society, Earth, K-World or Hueco Mundo and in an instant the light builds around them and transports them to the marked location. This technique was created in order to deploy the Zero Division quicker and has never been used to go to anywhere but a location in the Soul Society or the Earth. It’s called a canon drop because the member of the zero division reaches the final location in the blink of an eye; the light then vanishes but the member can be recalled by Izanagi if their vital signs are diminishing. When recalling, the light builds up around then and prevents anyone reaching a twenty to thirty meter radius because of the energy that’s released. The light takes a second to build up and with that the Member vanishes and is recalled to the HQ. Over time, Izanagi has tagged all of the Zero Division members for precaution and is both friendly and familiar with them.
Zanpakutō Apperance: In the sealed state, the Zanpakutō takes on the appearance of a plain katana that has a black and white hilt and the Japanese kanji for ‘Shinsui’ engraved into the side of it. For one to bare the Shinsui kanji upon the hilt of their Zanpakutō, they must show a valor and strength, something that Izanagi has shown countless times. His father carried the same engraving on his blade and it wasn’t that Izanagi had forged it to look like that, as his Zanpakutō began adapting to him, that Kanji began appearing on his hilt until it stuck permanently hours before his fight with Kaname Tousen. His kind and generous personality earned him his life and position which is why he greets his opponents and tells them of his name so that they knew who took their life on the battle field and can rest in peace.
S H I K A I | N F O R M A T I O N
Thousand Blades Of Light: When Izanagi releases his Zanpakutō it breaks down into bright light that can clearly be seen by the opponent. This light moves with the movement of Izanagis hilt or by thought. The light conceals hundreds thousands of microscopic blades that create the large burst of light because of their structure. The structure reflects the light in the surrounding area thus blocking out their real appearance; some have compared his thousand blades of light to the Noble Head Of The Kuchiki Clan, Byakuyas Shikai. He agrees they are similar however they are faster and rip away the reishi within the being upon striking the opponent. They can be used both offensively and defensively, to begin with, the offensive will be explained.
Because of the size of the blades and the raw quantity of them they can be used to attack the opponent. Because of their size they leave no wound on the outer skin unless Izanagi purposely directs them to cut into the opponent more violently, however if they strike an opponent they pierce through the skin and severe the veins, muscles and nerves. The wounds tend to be rather hard to heal because of their precision; they pierce the internal part of the body and because of the damage that’s usually dealt to the flowing energy within the affected area, it’s hard to maintain control of attacks from the damaged area. These blades act much like a sowing machine, they pierce through the fabric all at once thus making it excruciatingly painful, and similarly, they leave the fabric without leaving a mark which is what really frightens the opponents.
The microscopic blades can pierce through the skin on a molecular level, with the vast majority of beings having some form of energy passing through their body the pathways are severed by the large quantity of instantaneous attacks. Upon piercing the skin, they go all the way through to the other side; because of this and the strength of the microscopic blades, they can chip away at the bone or even leave nothing of it if they are all directed to a specific location and succeed. Similarly, because they go all the way through they rip through nerves muscles and whatever else remains in their path. With the small size, they can glide and move effortlessly though the wind, the metal it self is Zanpakutō metal which makes it hard to destroy but not hard to counter with other Zanpakutō or speed in general. For Arrancar, the feeling is unpleasant as when the blades pierce their Hiero it removes it from the area attacked by ripping it away from the remaining skin and leaving the area open to attacks; the unpleasant feeling originates from the Heiro being removes, it feels almost surgical and can be bother unnerving and irritating. It has a similar effect on the demon defenses.
Now, as for the defensive side, Izanagi can move the blades at will and thus he can attack with fractions of the thousands while defending with the remaining amount. He can align the blades before his body and subconsciously map their structure which in effect moves the blades into the structure that he wishes for; this is possible because of his Eidetic Memory and countless hour of training. He attempted aligning them over thirty times and thirty different prior to perfecting it, now all he has to do is recall how the perfected structure is created through the aid of his Eidetic Memory prior to forming the defenses. He can create a concave barrier in front of his body formed solely from the blades, to most, it looks like the light is protecting him and makes them nervous as in light can be linked back to the Soul King himself, but its nothing like that, its simply his blade aligning before him to serve as a form of protection. The single blade can withstand a lot of impact because of the type of metal, thus when arraigning them as a shield they act more as a unit and equally distribute the pressure and energy recieved in order to fend off a larger attacks. There is a unique property to these blades; Izanagi if decides to, can close one eye and project his vision onto the far side of his shield in order to watch the opponent while on the defensive; this in effect allows for almost perfectly timed counter attacks. Similarly, Izanagi can encase himself in the blades thus giving himself the top standard 360 degree defense; the armor that encases him often bares resemblance to an angel because of the light reflecting qualities thus some see him as an angle ready to bestow judgment upon them.
B A N K A I | N F O R M A T I O N
Innate Equilibrium: This is the name of the technique that brings the Yin and Yang abilities from within to an equilibrium and in effect triggers the activation of the Bankai. Within the inner world, his two spirits, the Black and the White Wolf run toward one another and break down into Reishi as they collide in order to form the Yin and Yang symbol. This is the first stage of the Bankai and thus no changes from the Shikai are noticed as of yet. When a balance of both is created then the Bankai can truly begin. The inner collision works by the two Wolfs running toward the threshold separating their sides of the world and colliding; the collision isn't violent, more graceful than anything. As they collide, they breakdown into light and dark while manipulating one another intensities in order to reach an Equilibrium.
Darkness Arise: Black energy begins releasing around Izanagi. The initial release of the energy alone is enough to tear apart a city the size of Karakura. The black energy swerves around him as his old attire begins to get engulfed and replaced by a new one. The new attire closely resembles that of the rest of the Zero Division Members; he has a standard shinigami attire accompanied by what looks to be a Haori. As the clothes change, so does the color and appearance of his Zanpakutō. The Zanpakutō begins to get thinner but more durable, it begins get longer and stronger why the hilt turns black. The black energy radiates around the blade but the change in appearance gives him a significant speed boost. The purpose of the black bankai is for his speed, dexterity and general mobility to increase; as the blackness engulfs him it changes his attire because his previous attire weights tons. With the weight off his shoulders, he can move much faster, this release wraps him in the black energy as he moves which in effect conceals his movement.
He is wrapped in black energy to receive 360 degree vision; he can see what the blackness can; as an effect of this, his eyes turn completely black, almost demonic. Because of this, its hard to perform a surprise attack while his in this state. As he moves he can keep perfect track of his surroundings and move with more of a burst because the black energy amplifies the general speed of the user. When cut by Izanagis blade while within the darkness arise Bankai, the area begins to decompose as the blade deems the individual not worthy to live. This utilizes the Yang principle and begins to decompose the reishi and the body of the person cut; when the decomposition begins it slowly spreads across the remained of the body unless the limbs severed or sealed by some means. If the energy is sealed however, the Kido or energy used to seal it will become imbalanced because of the excess of Yang energy that disrupts the general flow. This either makes the energy used to seal it useless or not as effective as usual. With every cut on the individuals body the rate of decays increases, most people lose consciousness from the pain of the first strike because it shreds the pain receptors first but doesn't completely remove them as the blades intentions are for the full wrath and pain of the Zanpakutō to be felt. It doesn't allow the opponent to simply get away from the pain through the loss of the pain receptors hence why those are the last part of the struck area to completely decompose. Some individuals, managed to endure the pain and their mental stability and will power allows them to keep going for longer than the average opponent. To date, the only person to have had survived his Bankai was Ceon Clixx-Kimaru himself; the duo trained in the past, when Izanagi first awakened his Bankai, the man showed above average determination and pain endurance. They fought for 8 hours prior to the fight drawing to an end. His bankai is a formidable weapon as its built on peace and sanctity, it rids the world of evil hence why the effect of the decomposition is catalyzed when the attack strikes either an Arrancar or Demon, even someone with an antagonistic vibe.
Illuminate With Light: This is an alternate stage of his Bankai, upon releasing he can choose to active either one or the other. He can’t have both versions active at once, but this version is much different than the darkness form. Within this stage, Izanagis 4 Ton Armor turns white; as that turns white, so does the hilt of his Zanpakutō, while the blade it self turns black. The Zanpakutō begins to look the inverse of the darkness stage but it’s as powerful in Izanagis opinion. Once the transformation is complete, the blade receives unique properties. The blade gains the ability to tear reishi and act like the Kido “Abolishing Flames” when coming in contact with the opponent. In effect, when his blade collides with the skin of the opponent navy spiritual energy begins to cover the touches area and over 2-3 posts the arm or the affected area begins being burnt away in the most painful of ways until nothing remains of the effected area. Its true, Shinigami consist of Reishi and any blade can cut through it, what makes this different is the fact that it exchanges it with the navy flames, so if the blade was to pass through the opponents stomach it would allow the flames to remain there and incinerate them inside out. The attack can be refereed to as incineration because of its traits, however its far from incineration. Its careful substitution of the properties of Reishi within the opponent. It leaves no cuts and can pass directly through the opponent without leaving as much as a hole in them; this is because of the substitution principle, it uses the Yin to manipulate and edit the Reishi and force the body to burn it self from its own energy. Therefore, the more energy expelled by the opponent, the more catalyzed the self destruction. Additionally, the blade receives additional sharpness and can cut through the majority of blades that it comes in contact with; at times, it can cut through a Zanpakutō but that only depends on the strength difference between Izanagi and the opponent.
S2: The blade has two techniques that can be alternated at ease, the first is the technique explained above where the Zanpakutō passes through the body. This technique is the second and it solidifies the Zanpakutō so in this state it can pass through the opponents body, but the tip of the blade is the crucial area as it contains the most energy.
The blade uses light for heat thus making the tip overwhelmingly hot, when the tip comes in contact with a standard defense, Hiero and Demon defenses alike, it completely abolishes them. The key to the blade is linear contact; the moment the tip touches the ground or the body it will release heat in a linear motion; the heat and light will expand in outward directions and rip the opponent’s body apart, often leaving a hole or something along those lines. This is because of the ascension in temperature, light can get as hot as the sun it self it not hotter because of its speed. Luckily we don't burn alive because its naturally occurring while Izanagis light is altered to generate heat that can scold opponents from within a 25 meter radius without touching them and completely abolish body parts upon contact. On the other hand, the light side of his Zanpakutō isn’t all destructive, it possesses healing properties and as long as Izanagi wields the hilt of the Zanpakutō, the photons from the surrounding light begin converting to energy and seeping into his wounds prior to healing them to perfection. The downside to this is that the rest of the Zanpakutō acts in the same manner as a regular Zanpakutō this possessing same properties and lacking the heat making the crucial and most dangerous part of the blade, the tip it self.

Sovereign of Yin and Yang | The Light and Dark: This is the name bestowed upon Izanagis Shikokai. His attire splits down the center, one half becoming black while the other becoming white. As the appearance change takes place, a second Zanpakutō is summoned to Izanagis free palm. At this point, one Zanpakutō is completely black while the other is white as light. The two blades being present at once depict a phenomenon as its both powers of his Bankai at once. Over time, his body has become accustomed to the toll that this technique takes however having both stages awakened at once gives him unimaginable prowess in his fields of action. He may not be able to hold the release for long but he doesn’t need to as with the release of the Shikokai the end draws near. The area around his is decimated by the energy released by this release which is all the more reason why he hardly uses it. The energy release alone is strong enough to force the opponent to kneel, its overwhelming and almost divine.
In this stage, Izanagi feels as light as a feather and as free as a bird; because of this he can submerge himself in light and travel at the same speeds as it. By covering his body in the light he makes himself a component of a light wave and move at unimaginable speeds. This part allows for unparalleled movement while the darkness allows for dominance.. The black blade rips the opponents skin upon contact, the reishi is destroyed and death is usually imminent; this is because of the black blades new properties, it breaks reishi away from the body and completely destroys it, over several strikes, the opponent might begin to suffer aging effects because their soul is being clawed at and rip, with the attack on the soul arises the reishi that is then destroyed. With the combination of speed and destructibility it makes it rather hard for the opponent to dodge or evade, it’s the last release for the shinigami and only the blessed awaken it which is why it’s so strong. It alone decides life and death as that’s one of the properties of the Yin and Yang principle. Nevertheless, the standard draw backs of spiritual limitation are still present and the attacks can be parried in some cases.
Essentially, Izanagis Shikokai is a combination of both of his Bankai powers in one. Because he can't access them both while in the Bankai state, his Shikokai was devised to overcome that limitation. In this state however, the Bankai abilities are somewhat amplified. To begin with, his Darkness arise takes on the form of a black thin and slate Zanpakutō while his 'Illuminate with light' takes on the appearance of a white Zanpakutō. He wields them both with ease while his eyes turn black. The Shikokai is rather judgmental, when either of the blades come in contact with the opponent, they sense whether the individual is evil or not, its not something that can be trained into an individual, its innate. If the black Zanpakutō strikes those who are evil, it decomposes the effected area within a post; consecutive attacks make it more dangerous hence why its best to parry or evade his attacks in this stage. The rate of energy thats released from his Zanpakutō per cut is amplified within this stage hence why the decomposition happens much faster than usual. Because of the general effects of the black blade, the pain can drive them insane or permanently damage their pain receptors while ruining their mental state because of the severe mental trauma.
With the use of the white blade comes an onslaught of blue energy. Its sent forth in waves and arcs; upon contact with the opponent it absorbs into the body and begins internal destruction. The organs go first and begin exploding vigorously while the energy within slowly claws at the inner body until it surfaces. Once the energy is absorbed into the opponents body it begins to seek like and thus destroys everything in its path until it finds a plausible way out. The arcs travel at moderate speeds and can thus be evaded, however at point blank range its at times futile to attempt evading it as the black blade will compensate for the white blades miss. It still has the same abilities as the Bankai, though they are amplified by the ascension in power. It still leaves no cuts upon contact and passes straight through while leaving behind energy, one thing that changes though is the quantity of energy left behind. Usually, the energy would sever/destroy a limb inside out, but with the aid of his Shikokai the energy levels are high enough to remove the whole being from existence within 3 posts, unless the opponent surrenders.

T H E S H I N S U I H I S T O R Y
Living Past Times: Izanagi was born in a small village in Japan; the date was the 14th February 1414 by the Modern Day Calendar. He had subtle signs of black hair upon birth and one gray hair which supposedly signed great wisdom. He grew up in his small village, from an early age he trained his father and brother; his father was a blacksmith for the town while Izanagi was young. He trained the duo how to forge the best and most durable of swords, a technique of folding that Izanagi can still recall. His blades were the best and strongest among the rivaling nations thus many wanted his expertise. He did everything to make money and provide for his family, one of the most significant things being that he trained his children how to use the swords that he had forged so that they can protect themselves and their families in the coming future.
Izanagi was young when their little village became over ran by soldiers. They set houses alight and killed women and children, the screams of whom still reside in the depths of Izanagis subconscious. The children were crying and everyone was running; they were cut down like animals, no respect nor remorse. Countless people were slaughtered, a hundred, maybe two hundred were killed in that one night; many more were raped and stripped of their belongings. None of the soldiers entered their house because of the metal doors, walls and windows. Their residence was almost a fortress, something that his father set up after he decided to travel with an army and forge weapons for them. Izanagi sat in the corner of a room while embracing his knees, the horrors that he had witnessed through the small peep holes formed in the walls were never to be forgotten by him.
Every two years, the bandits returned and attack the new residence to a point where the village was deemed cursed. Year by year they returned and had no luck breaking into the Shinsui residence, within hid countless villagers all of whom feared for their lives; the allowed for their possessions to be taken but not the lives of their children. Each time they visited, Izanagi locked himself away and forged a dagger in respect to those who sacrificed themselves to protect the village. He later buried the dead with these daggers and wished them a peaceful rest. Over the years, Izanagi and his brother were working on a trademark blade; folding the molten steel was hard however the duo perfected it and formed what came to be called a Katana. They hadn’t a name for it but took note of it in old scrolls and weaponry books. The blade moved effortlessly and had the generic ability to cut the weaker blades. Izanagi and his brother possessed a blade each, his hilt was Navy in color while his brothers was crimson.
The duo had enough of the bloodshed and loss, no merchants passed through their village in months because of the fear of the bandits. One night, when the bandits were spotted on the outskirts, everyone packed into the Shinsui house hold but the two boys, Izanagi and his brother were missing. At the time, their mother didn’t notice their absence because of the countless other people that had been within the house. Outside, the duo braced themselves, each unsheathed their blades as the bandits approached and mocked them, “AHSHAHAA CHILDDREEEEEN? PITIFULLL!! HAVING CHILDREN FEND FOR YOU AGGHHHAHAHHA”. It was the first time Izanagi heard their leader speak, the man had a wretched tone and allure. His eyes took note of the innocent horse that had no choice but to listen to its master, he slowly whispered to his brother “Mind the horses, they have done nothing to us.” with that he shot forward, leaving nothing but dust in his trail.
The katana moved effortlessly in comparison to regular swords which came as a wonder when Izanagi unsheathed his blade and rushed past the leader. His movement was calm and graceful, his katana was now dripping with blood; as he passed the leader, his sword ascended and ripped straight through the appendix and some of the other organs within the general area. The man was done for and slowly dropped of his horse. Izanagis eyes took steady note of the other enemies approaching; he straightened his back and swung the blade to rip it of the blood. His Eidetic Memory allowed him to recall the 8 people that were rushing toward him and link them to those that they had killed. As the first individual approached, Izanagis blade stabbed outward and straight into the chest of the man, “For Kien, For Sato, For Sora, For Koten, For Itsuki, For Inami, For Kakushi” with every death he mentioned the names of those that had been slayed by these murderers, he moved gracefully as to not be covered in their filthy blood.
With the eight aside, he turned his attention to the trio that had attacked his brother. He was now used to using the blade in combat. The sound of his footsteps echoed as he approached the trio, he gave them a chance to surrender but was simply met by a snide remark, with that came a swing of his blade and one after another the heads of the Bandits dropped to the ground. Izanagi wasn’t satisfied. This was brutal and it made him as bad as them. He confined his sword and vowed never to use it again. A year later, his father returned to the village and admired the blades that the duo had created. By this point, Izanagis brother was creating the swords alone as Izanagi wanted nothing to do with the murder of others. His father was amazed at the craftsmanship and at the fact that they managed to recreate an old, classic katana. He praised them but said he had to leave for work again. The duo were around 14 at the time, his brother trained In the art of the sword every day while Izanagi helped the villagers with their cattle and ran errands for the elderly. He became soon acknowledged as a respectable youth, the villagers adored him because of his kind and generous personality. They liked his brother too, as he provided them all with protection. Over time, his brother got better and better at making the swords while Izanagi trained his mind and body while reading books and exercising.
The elder individuals from the village provided him with great scrolls and ancient books for him to read they covered something that couldn’t be put into words. They mentioned the ones who take souls and training of some form. Nevertheless, Izanagi thought of them to be fictional and thus trained his body for the endeavors ahead. He didn’t want to be a blacksmith; he wanted to be a calligrapher, he wanted to write stories and books for the world to enjoy, little did he knew, time was running out. With word of his valor, the neighboring villages came to visit the individual who was now 16 years old. His father was still fighting in the Great War and no letters from him had arrived. A month after his 16th birthday, a messenger arrived while accompanied by some soldiers, the villagers armed themselves but they held a peaceful flag that represented the army that his father had worked for. The arrived at the village and everyone had thought his father was returning… but that wasn’t the case.
“I am sorry to announce that the Head Of The Shinsui house hold has been missing in action for the past month. His possessions are here, we presume that he has passed away. You have my Condolences. The general has asked for me to deliver the remainder of the blacksmiths money.” Izanagi couldn’t believe what he was hearing. The day was young and his brother and mother were both asleep; he didn’t want to break the bad news and quickly took the possessions prior to letting them depart. He hauled the items into the house and entered the blade room; deep within one of the walls lay a gap which had been concealed by lead and snake venom. He moved the metal aside carefully as to no trigger the trap prior to withdrawing his sword and closing it once more.
He came out of the room to be greeted by his brother’s tired eyes. He seemed rather confused as to why everyone had their condolences for them, Izanagi didn’t want to leave him in the dark. They both adored their father equally thus giving him a right to know. As Izanagi explained the situation, his brother ascended up the stairs and returned with his own blade. They left a note for their mother and took the horses the bandits had left behind years ago; over the years they had been well tended too and thus were in perfect condition. The last know location of their father was some old battlefield around 50 miles from the village. They departed in the morning…
Early next day, they began arriving at the battle field, from the horizon approached some men that had been engulfed in black and armed to the teeth. Izanagi and his brother galloped down the canyon where they found a small camp of rogues and bandits. This was the general area of his father’s previous location, at first sight, they appeared to be rogues, but they were more than that; they had been perfectly trained soldiers from an opposing army who wanted his father’s expertise for themselves. They disembarked the horses and slowly approached; afar laid their father, wounded, beaten and hungry. Izanagi ordered his brother to stay back on the horses, he was the successor for the Clan and thus his brother had to listen. He hadn’t used his blade in years because of what it did to the bandits that attacked the village; it was finally time for the rust to be chipped off.
Izanagi looked down as he casually entered the camp and lifted his father from the ground, he later turned and began heading toward the location of the horses. No one had noticed his absence until Izanagi reached the outskirts of the forest. Many shouted and some shot arrows toward the duo but Izanagi simply picked up the pace and found his way out. Upon exiting, he tosses his father onto his brother’s horse prior to stripping his brother of his throwing stars and blades. As he took the remainder of his brothers weapons, he slapped his horse prompted it to go forth! The horse began running forward and Izanagi knew this was the right choice to make. If he hadn’t had stayed, they would have caught up to the trio and would have killed them all, villagers included. This army had a lot of horses, the one that he had arrived on did nothing wrong hence why he hit it gently and ordered it to run. The army members came out of the forest some held machetes while others held pristine blades and chains. He noticed them and two others that had begun charging after his brother and father by horse; his right hand dropped to a small pouch of throwing stars as he collected and tossed them.
In the village, they had a game where you had to hit the bulls eye with one of the throwing stars, Izanagi always excelled to the point where it was no longer fun. The star struck the first man on horseback in the throat, while striking the other in the chest. They screamed out as the remainder of soldiers began charging toward him, a quite clipping sound could have been heard as he unsheathed his Katana and removed the head of the first attacker. Then he removed the leg and waist of the second and third attacker until no one who witnessed the way Izanagis brother and father went. Upon completion, countless men began exiting the forest, all armed and dangerous. It was true, Izanagi didn’t want to die so young! He wanted to become a poet or a writer but none of his ambitions were to come true; if he was to be caught they would torture the information out of him and thus the instant he heard “Capture him alive” he acted.
A tear rolled down his left cheek as he smiled, his blade began turning and pointing toward his chest as he slowly applied pressure. He hesitated in fear, as his eyes teared up as he felt someone hold onto his shoulders; that feeling put him at ease while the man rushed to stop him. Within a moment, the blade slipped through his chest and ribcage prior to splitting his heart in half. The instant the blade passed through his chest, he found himself glancing down his own body while a man adorned in black gently placed his body to the ground. The man glanced at Izanagi as he congratulated him for being so brave. The hilt of the mans sword hit his forehead and that was all he could remember….
Life In The Soul Society:
By the age of 16, he had fought for his village, helped the villagers on daily bases, rescued his father and took his own life. That was a lot to comprehend, but he woke, only to find himself surrounded by countless individuals dressed in black. These individuals went by the name of Soul Reapers. At the time, Izanagi didn’t know where he was or who the individuals were. His blade was by his side and it never felt like he had died; he rose to his feet while taking note of his surroundings, he was in a completely different place but what intrigued him was why all of the people around him had odd facial expressions, then a man stood forth and explained. “You can see it, can’t you? The facial expressions of those around you; they can feel your strength and it’s hard to reside within the confines of these walls with such high energy beings walking around. What interests me is how did you get into the Seireitei? You only… died this morning.” His eyes widened a little but it came as no shock.
He held the sheath of his blade in his right hand prior to bowing and apologizing for causing a distribution.
Izanagi wasn’t allowed to leave the Seireitei after arriving; he couldn’t control his immense spiritual presence and would in effect choke the residents of Rukongai. At the time, there was no Shino Academy, Izanagi trained on his own and one day was called to meet with the Captain Commander of the time who taught him the ways of suppressing spiritual powers. He trained regularly in order to improve that specific ability and make himself valuable; however he still had a lot of excess spiritual pressure. One day, he met an odd man who offered to exchange the excess spiritual pressure for raw strength. Izanagi was quite naïve but the crystal the man possessed allowed for the exchange to be completed successfully.
Since that day, he trained in order to perfect his combat and heightened his abilities in order to become more of an asset to the Gotei 13. He liked what he was no using his blade for; it was for the peace and protection of others, something that he adored. He wore the Shinigami attire with pride and cherished every moment within the thirteen court guard squads. In a matter of years he awakened his Shikai and was without a doubt the prodigy of his time. There was another before him, Ceon Clixx-Kimaru, he heard of the man and decided to seek him out. After meeting with him, he formed a close bond with the man and trained with him on regular bases.
Years passed and Izanagi finally awakened his Bankai, upon doing so he was promoted to the Captain of the 5th Division and the Commander of the Kido Corps because of his un-paralleled prowess in his field. He worked on his Kido while training alongside his comrade and friend, Ceon. There was always a considerable gap in power; this made Izanagi aspire to be better and stronger so that the duo could work alongside one another like he worked with his brother. He enjoyed the man’s presence and first used his Bankai against him; this was a training fight, of course however it lasted hours on end until the duo decided to call it quits. A lot changed over the next few years after that. Ceon was promoted to head the Zero Divison while Izanagi trained and aided rest of the Gotei 13. His contributions to the 9th and 13th Division were never overlooked and then came the year of his promotion.
Izanagi was called to the Office of the Captain Commander. He was the best of the best in the field of Kido at his time. There, stood Ceon, alongside two other individuals. A decision had been bestowed upon him, the decision was that Izanagi be appointed The Wisdom Of The Spell for the Zero division. He was aware of the duties he would have to partake in and accepted the responsibilities that came with that new rank. Over time, he offered some advice to Ceon which encouraged him to stay at the Zero Division, however, the Winter War came.
The winter war was a time of sorrow for many as a lot of people sacrificed their lives. Izanagi was well aware of the situation at hand, the Zero Division had to leave it to the Gotei 13 but he was well aware that Ceon wasn’t going to allow that. The defender primary mobilized his Zero Division and began a full scale onslaught on the enemy. In the end, we were securing the safety of the soul king and those were our duties. One individual from the other side was unfortunate enough to cross paths with Izanagi, the story of which will now unfold.
The temperature was four degrees Celsius while on the alternate version of Karakura Central. Ceon Clixx-Kimaru had engaged with Sosuke Aizen, the Zero Division was fending off the Espada. Two men were far from the rest, the first man was a rather old Wisdom of the Spell for the Zero Division, the other was a man or Arrancar by the name of Kaname Tousen.
Izanagi took notice of the man ahead, he had no doubt about it, it was Tousen, the man with impaired vision. He found it disrespectful fighting an enemy who wasn’t as advantageous as Izanagi and thus offered him a chance to surrender, “Lower your Zanpakutō, Kaname Tousen and you will be spared.” . It was clear the man had no intentions of co-operating as he instantly attack. The first of the man’s attacks consisted of a Kido Sokatsui, the blue light began forming from the man’s palm but with Izanagis extra ordinary knowledge of the Kido he predicted the attack and thought Danku. By this point, a large rectangular void formed before him and as the attack dispersed he stood watching his opponent, offering one more opportunity to surrender.
The man refused to respond which was when Izanagi began his own series of attacks. His right hand slipped across the hilt of his Zanpakutō as it comfortably slipped out of the sheath, his eyes were pinned on the opponent and as the blade escaped the constrains of the sheath, he vanished. No sound was released into the area, no energy, nothing. For a split second Izanagi was invisible, his movement was too fast for the Captain to track but in seconds he found himself behind Kaname. It was a real pity to kill someone who didn’t possess true sight; nevertheless his blade began moving from one of Kanames shoulder through to the other. However, it seemed the man’s hearing was more tuned than initially predicted, he heard the sound of the blade cutting the around his body and instinctively reacted with Shunpo.
Izanagi pitied the man who follows Aizen, afar the spiritual pressure of Aizen was slowly diminishing and there was nothing any of his comrades could do to protect him. Aizen wouldn’t think twice about these individuals, even after they laid their lives down for his wellbeing. It made him sick to the stomach. A cold breeze blew through the ski while Izanagi walked forward. As he approached he raised his Zanpakutō and began slashing down on Kanames shoulder; as predict the blades of the duo met at which point a finger extended from the left palm and pointed toward Kanames torso. “Byakurai” If this had been released at the initial full power then the fight would have finished there and then. Tosen edge to the side and the blue, electric light struck the left side of his ribcage, in effect ripping it apart. But as Kaname took the blow he moved his blade and attempted to slash Izanagis waist.
His blade moved gracefully as he repositioned it to meet the incoming attack of the opponents Zanpakutō. The clash of the steel echoed while Izanagis eyes watched the wound that had been formed from the attack; it wasn’t severe. The crucial aspect that saved him was the hollow hole that had been implemented onto his body; it was coincidental if anything. Izanagi pushed Kanames Blade out wide prior slapping the Zanpakutō into the man’s shoulder and removing the left arm. The arm dropped off and began descending toward the ground, Izanagi wasn’t happy about fighting those who used to be good men, it really was a pity; he held his breath as his Zanpakutō rose once again and aimed to behead the man. He was unsuccessful, because of this, Kaname managed cut down the right side of Izanagis torso; the wound wasn’t too deep but it prompted him to hop away from his opponent. He swung the blade and cleared the blood that had built upon it.
He inhaled and put his principles aside for a moment prior to attacking once more. This time his attack was thorough, no gap for error or mistakes. The blade pierced the man’s abdomen and ripped straight through his organs; Kaname swung his Zanpakutō at Izanagi but it simply met the palm of his hand as he stopped it in its tracks. He yanked the blade out prior to swinging it again, and ridding it of the evil infested blood; he looked at the opponent who was now in rather critical condition, but he seized to give up. They fought for several minutes, with every coming minute Izanagi dealt more and more damage to the man prior to the point where he simply refused to fight. He stopped, “Treason is one thing, but slaying a man in critical condition, that’s an unabridged other. I refuse to rid the realm of you existence, Kaname Tousen ” with that said, Izanagi sheathed his Zanpakutō but heard two distinct works, the first being “Ban” and the other being “Kai”. It was a futile move, the area began to get enveloped in the darkness while Izanagi decided that he had little to no choice but to proceed.
He turned around and faced his opponents previous location while raising a hand and aiming it east. He decided that there was no other choice; blue energy of the Hadō 88 shot forth from his palm. This energy was at Stage 3 of the Shinsui style, as it struck one of the steel rings of the Bankai, light returned to the airea; six orange rods slammed themselves into the man’s core and held him in place. Then formed the black coffin; that in effect symbolized the end of man’s times. The coffin was tarnished in blood and coated in navy reiatsu as it ascended and encased its opponent. In stage three of the Shinsui Style, it didn’t even require the aid of an incantation. As the Kido shut all that could be heard was a scream…. Moments later, the black walls of Kurohitsugi vanished, but no remnants were left behind. Light began subduing Izanagi as he left the site.
As he arrived at Ceons location, his feet calmly touched down in the destroyed perimeter. His eyes glanced over at Ceon who simply sat there looking at the dead body of Sosuke Aizen; he said something along the lines of “Took you long enough”. Izanagi smiled in relief prior to activating his Tenteikura and linking the Primary to the rest of the Gotei 13 and the Zero division. News spread and the survivors began to cower back to their respectful realms; the enemy retreated and the Zero Division shortly returned to the Kings Realm. Over the years Izanagi was a man of few words, however the words that he had used always fit the situation hence allowing his wisdom to shine forth.
Out with the Old In with the New:
After the Winter War, Ceon bided his time while Izanagi aimed to keep him at the Zero Division. Several years had passed but it was clear that Ceon Clixx-Kimaru wasn’t to be tied down to the Zero Division much longer. Izanagi attempted to prevent his leave, he tried everything in his power aside from fighting the man who he had a lot of respect toward. He was upset if anything as the man who had kept him here for so long was the only one to watch him leave. His Eidetic memory prevented him from forgetting any memories which made it ever so harder. Several years after the situation, the Zero Division was disbanded and Izanagi was left to pursue some of the ideas he had.
The first thing he did as a sign of a fresh start was to found his Clan, The Shinsui Clan. He already had children by that time but he wanted to make the clan official and he did so by building a large residence within the Soul Society. It was a Mansion that stood out from the layout of rest of the Seireitei. It was perfectly crafted and took several months to create. After completion, Izanagi moved all of his active family members in there and hired some individuals to work for the Shinsui Clan. Over the years, because of Izanagis status, they were deemed to be a Royal Clan of the Soul Society. Izanagi witnessed the birth of his daughter Izanami in this manner and the birth of his son Yozora, but those were the only two births that he had been around for!
After the year passed, Izanagi was invited to join the newly re-established Zero Division, because of all the aid he had received after his death and the foundation of his Clan Izanagi accepted the offer and assumed his old position. He aimed to protect the peace that had been forged by the predecessors; the success of the Winter War dwelled on his mind as did Ceon. No one knew of the fact that Ceon entrusted Izanagi to look over his daughter, Neviah Clixx-Kimaru. He made the last promise to the man prior to his departure and ever since that day he’s been watching over the girl as if she was his own family.
Over the years, Izanagi had been the one to look over the affairs of the Gotei 13 and the one to directly communicate with Central 46 and its members. There have been some striking candidates who would have made for excellent Zero Division candidates if they hadn’t had strayed off the path of good.
To this day, his at his peak. His Kido is finely tuned and without the doubt the strongest out of any Zero Division members and Gotei 13 members alike. Because of his prowess in the field, the 100th Series of Kido was devised. Usually, Kido is ranked from 1-99, however after years of experience he created the 100th Series. The 100th Series have exponential power and are very devastating. Some of the techniques have yet to be revealed to anyone but some require sacrifice while others are simply unmatched in power.

Comments/Notes: The only thing that really needs fixing in this application to me is the fact that there should be more information on your Zanpakutō. What's it's personality like? What does his inner-world look like? Along with that, I believe his Shikokai should have a bit more information as it seems kind of brief for one. Also, does his Bankai and Shikai and Shio have an appearance or what? When these are fixed, I'll re-review it.
