Welcome to Bleach Platinum Hearts RP! This is a Bleach Role Playing Forum set in the year 2416, over 400 years away from the Original Bleach's timeline. It has elements of both canon and custom for a unique mixture of role playing never seen before on Bleach. To get started, please sign up and read our starter guide:
Something kept Shin interested through his entire time here. Mostly it was Shibo Aijin. He decided one day to pretend like he would play a game with her. He called it the Silence Game. He was surprised, it was a trick used on children and yet, she fell for it. For three days of this whole scouting adventure, she was silent. And he was amused at the faces she made every time she wanted to talk, almost like it pained her being unable to speak. It was highly amusing as he scoured up the river, moving up it and keeping his patrol line steady while peeling the environment carefully. Granted, it was a general patrol and while the 2nd Division was in shambles, it was his duty to pick up where he felt his subordinates lacked. And in his coat pocket of his brown attire was his Captain's haiori. For revealing he was a Captain would just welcome uninvited visitors. And he kept his pace along the water's edge before something caught his interest as he stopped.
Something is further down the river.
I noticed that. I would know if any other patrols were out also. Good chance it isn't someone we know.
How do we go about this?
Force it out of hiding and feign ignorance. Also, you lose.
YOU BAKA THIS ISN'T THE TIME FOR THAT GAME!
Shin simply grinned as he made his way to the water's edge, coming up to a large waterfall where he sensed the being in question was at the top of. Doing what, he wasn't entirely sure. But it didn't matter, Shin simply sat at the crest of it, taking a break and waiting to see what would happen.

And there it was. The being in question was quite fast. But....non-threatening? Maybe the muffins were poisoned and Shin was the perfect one to negate that tactic? Who knows. Shin felt no harm in it otherwise as he looked towards his target in question.
"This is different. Never been randomly offered muffins before, are you the Girl Scouts equivalent of a....whatever you are?"
Shin had an idea of what the being was but, it would be better if he made it identify itself rather simply guess and hope he was right. He shrugged as he grabbed a muffin and began to munch on it. He smiled lightly as he noted no poisons in it, so it wasn't a secret Shinigami killer of snackfoods. That would be horrible. But, the tasty snacks he had made him grin.
"A little dry but, very sweet and tasty. Thank you.
Shin continued to munch on the sweets, pondering exactly what he was going to have to deal with. This was definitely a new kind of encounter. Enemy tactic? Potential ally? He wouldn't know really until he investigated this further. And he simply delighted in these snacks as he did.

It seems....genuine oddly enough. Which is rare. I was suspecting a ruse but he seems to generally want to bake muffins and interact. I need to learn more however before I make a decision.
Shin said as he watched him burst upwards and fly around, the gust being a nuisance before he came back down. He seemed to be quite....a spaz. Shin needed to know more information before he made any solid decisions however.
"Since we're in the interest of sharing Nize-san. I scout this area from time to time but, all the interesting areas are within the Seiretei. I'm surprised you haven't visited there yet. Speaking of sharing however. A formal introduction I think is fitting."
Shin said as he reached into his pocket and pulled out what would look like a white cloth at first. After a few moments, he would drape his body with it, revealing the Captain of Second Division insignia on it's back, the cloth being his Captain's garb that he wore when necessary. He cracked his neck and grinned slightly towards the new individual.
"I am Kimoi, Shinryu, Captain of the Second Division and Onmitsukido."
Multiple things started happening at once. The first of them being him revealing himself to be a member of the Espada and then, an apparition of him Or rather, an alter ego. And it validated some truth to Nize but, Shin's eyes carefully observed the situation and wondered if combat would happen. But when Nize seemed saddened and shocked, Shin realized something: A highly naive Espada was a rare weapon. A rare source of intel and sabotage. Too rare even. And he wondered what angles he could utilize in that sense.
"It is a half truth. We don't actively hunt Hollows in the sense of going to Hueco Mundo and killing them for sport. The weaker minded ones aimlessly attack humans and we protect them and their souls from those Hollow. Arrancar are different. You are able to function without aimlessly consuming humans. There is truth to what he says, there is a longstanding grudge against Arrancar held by some Shinigami who lost loved ones to Arrancar, and vice versa. For me? I've never had that so I view each individual as an individual. And to be completely honest I consider demons more of a threat than Hollow anyway."
Shin said with carefully chosen words as he observed this 'Lust'. It would seem it was an alter of sort to combat this being's naivete. Shin knew talking riddles around it would be pointless so, he'd get right to the point he had in question.
"Simply put, human souls become pluses, which become shinigami. So protecting humans was like a mommy bird protecting it's eggs. And there are quite a number of Shinigami who hunt Hollow and Arrancar. I'm more interested in hunting demons myself however. They think they can just trounce about and claim everything for themselves. The real fault in Hollows isn't in their intent but, in their diet. I always wondered if Hollows could eat demon souls. Things would be quite nice then. Truth be told however....Lust was it? I know you don't trust my words and perfectly viable not to. So ignore them for the time being. You know that as the Captain of the Division I happen to be from I could have attacked at any time and done serious, even fatal damage. And I chose not to. Simply for the reason that my curiosity has taught me one valuable lesson."
Shin stepped forward for a moment, looking towards the pair, one angered and another distraught as he kept his vision on them carefully as he simply took his Zanpakutō, while still in it's sheath, and placed it on the ground as an action of neutrality.
"Learning is more important than the results of swift action. And in my learning, you said something very particular to me. A particular word: Espada. An organization the Shinigami once went to war with, yes, though under particular circumstances. To be frank however, I find that instead of fighting, we could potentially become allies in a common goal: Weakening the demon threat. I mean, unless you like living under their thumbs that is. Perhaps if that's the case then by all means, come at me with everything you have. But, if even a shred of doubt is in your mind, I doubt there is any harm in coming to mutual terms on a common enemy? I'm not the oldest guy you'll ever meet, but even I remember when Hueco Mundo was a home for Hollow and Arrancar, not a room for rent like it is today."
"This might seem redundant considering how long you have waited but, patience is a virtue here. There is no simple way to just instantly dismantle the structure of the Demon stronghold in Hueco Mundo. As far as my authority, that's also a process to be worked out. Even if you and me both agree to these plans, if the other Espada disagree to it, it falls apart, and likewise for the other Divisions. So the first step in all this is me meeting face to face with the rest of you, followed by them meeting with the other Captains."
Shin said, the idea surely sounding like suicide for himself to walk in where it would be him and all Espada didn't sound too amusing to himself though it was a necessity of negotiation to meet those you are negotiating with. Shin looked up into the sky as it was beginning to get dark. Which wasn't a pleasant sign, it meant he didn't have much time before others got suspicious.
"More importantly is how we utilize information. You have the distinct advantage of knowing the Demon's movements, targets, and strongholds. We can use that to manipulate strikes against them, dismantle their takeovers, bring down some of their countries they have as footholds. And they will fight hard to keep them, so much that they leave Hueco Mundo barely defended. However, these two sisters you mention sound like by themselves could fend you off....which is where the other Captain's step comes into play. Formulating a plan to dismantle that control and them, will take a lot of information and planning. But, even if we can't destroy them, we can force them out through repositioning forces. There is one matter I wish to sate my curiosity with before any fruitition can come from this, as I must depart shortly."
Shin said as he then stood up, taking his blade and sheath and holstering it back into his attire before cracking his neck and looking towards them with a Grin.
"Well, two actually. First is, can you safely get me a meeting with the rest of you without alerting the demons. And secondly, this I want you to discuss with them as a part of my proposal to remedy all disagreements: Do demon souls give as much sustenance as human ones? I mean at this point there are more demons than humans almost. I ask simply because, if you could replace the human equation in a Hollow's diet, the Gotei 13 would be much more likely to consider you an ally and in the future, have no reason to bother you ever again. Discuss this with them and meet me here in two weeks time to determine the situation."
