This is the beginning it, the clan which was born through death has gained many skills. All members of this family learn the way of Killer Intent, this unlocked power is trained into the family through pain in most cases. When activated the member can activate an intent to kill so potent that they believe their lives are in danger. Words feel like knives and the amount of blood lust would make even the strongest of foes shiver in fear. This power is something they were left to bare as a price for their sins. The Unabara Killer Intent is a one of a kind thing. For when the crimson aura engulfs their bodies they begin to use the Killer's Aura. This method of fighting is used by assassins within the family and is extremely effective. It's been developed and refined, this base release your killer aura is easy to understand for the beginning. It's said a weak one can intimidate their enemies for a moment but a true master. Could make an enemy die out right from fear, causing them to have heart attacks from fear itself. This however has yet to be shown as Tsubasa has made a rule not to use this power openly. Nothing has called for Tsubasa's lift on this yet, though he believes Tetsuya and others may use it someday. The Killer Intent that hides beneath the surface of the Unabara. The desire to slay enemies without hesitation, it's a poison in their blood. Their is no cure and no freedom from this potent aura at the moment. It's a curse that haunts them since the days of old within the Zaraki District. This is but the beginning, it only gets more intense as a person gets more and more powerful.Pestilence's Poison Immunity:
This is given through the blessing of each of the Horseman, they serve a purpose and each gain's a trait of their own. Pestilence is immune to the poisons of this world. It would take a poison of extreme power to bother the rider of this steed. Those who server the Rider Pestilence are known for having an extreme amount of resistance to poison. This is largely due to the way the Unabara live each of the Horsemen go through days differently. But they are all capable of performing such a task to those loyal to those horsemen. It's believed largely that this power comes from Pestilence's use of poison to assassinate his targets. Poison is an effective weapon and it's something makes him one of the deadly Horsemen of the family. Those who are loyal to Pestilence as well as he himself, their blood is pure poison. To take any within your body would simply be a means of suicide. The amount of toxic elements in the blood of Pestilence and his followers is enough to kill several cities in a single drop. The only known antidotes are kept to the Rider himself and given out only when desired. Chemistry Understanding:
As the Rider of Pestilence Kazuya's knowledge of poisons, chemical compounds and drugs is amazing. He is by far one of the greatest experts in the field of chemistry. His knowledge of this subject is vast enough to be able to reverse engineer many chemical compounds and as such recreate, modify or create antidotes and develop an immunity. His ability to do this is very valuable and allows him cause widespread chaos with drugs and poisons that do a lot of harm, his chemical knowledge goes to such a length that he was able to chemically alter his blood to be able to resist and most poisons and chemicals, even incorporating an acidic trait into it which can break down all foreign material in his blood stream. However the ability of killing with chemicals also has a much brighter side, Kazuya's knowledge of chemistry also makes him an exert in the art of making medicine and the making of concoctions that can assist people. Poisonous Reiryoku:Immense Speed:
Kazuya uses speed predominately over his strength, this isn't to say he isn't strong but when it comes to fighting he prefers to use Zanjutsu Grandmaster:Hakuda Expert:Hoho Master:Kido Expert:
ZanjutsuThe Seven Lotus of the Unabara:
These are special moves developed by the Unabara Clan. They are used for swordplay overall and most the clan is capable of using it. However, that said the special moves take at least five threads to get an adept understanding of them. Much more is needed just to master the Lotus themselves. These are moves designed and perfected out by the Clan's Leader. Tsubasa has refined them from the form they were in to make them usable by most of the Clan. Now that said it does take training and the right amount of skill for some of these. Lower skilled people who haven't prepared their bodies well enough will fail the Initial Lotus. While others who succeed in this endeavor will find themselves on the way to others. The Unabara Lotus are considered some of the hardest moves within Swordsmanship. The Forms are first taught to those who wish to learn the Lotus. The style of the Unabara Lotus has first formed a long time ago. But due to the nature of the style, it wasn't something just anyone could do. They weren't suitable for the novice swordsman that the Unabara Clan had within its ranks. However thanks to Tsubasa's teaching skills he was able to create a program and other methods to bring them back. While Kierudo is based on the style itself. The raw form was something Tsubasa himself said wasn't suitable for using in combat just yet. Now that he has made the needed adjustments it's ready for usage. The Four Forms:
The Four Forms are a very simple Unabara custom that have been taught to the fighters. Sword Forms that can be switched at the drop of a hat. It doesn't take much to adjust footwork or move in a way to do so. They are in a way the training guide to learning the Lotus. When you've mastered the Four you are ready for the Lotus. So far in the Clan history, only Tsubasa has Mastered all Four of them equally. His practical use of the four of them is extremely precise. The styles flex in and out of the Lotus and each one causes different effects to the Lotus. The Lotus are extensions of the Forms and allow them to come out in different ways. By executing the First Lotus with one form you can get a totally different outcome than another. The benefit of this style is that it can be changed by the user. The Lotus and its powers can have very different meanings depending on the wielder. Each of the Four Forms will take at least a thread to get a beginner concept of how to use them. Five to Six threads to figure out how to use them effectively.First Form:
This is the first form taught for basic understanding of swordplay. Tsubasa often does introductions to them as he brings people in. The first tests for Kierudo play a part of the First Form. The first form exercises the use of precise swordplay. The level of control required to use the First Form is often times extreme. But this form is the one taught first as an introduction to the Forms. At the early stages of learning the user learns control above all else. Learning to control their power effectively with the sword. While the beginners will struggle to control the blade. The Adept will be slightly more elegant in the use of the sword. Advanced users will benefit from being able to control their blades to the point of stopping a blade from a centimeter. Once they reach Mastery of the First Form the control of their blade is extremely potent. They are able to generate blows of great force from sudden locations. However, much training is needed to reach mastery of the First Form.Second Form:
The Defensive Form known for it's absolute defense. While the word absolute is used it's not really all that impressive. Users are taught to create a three hundred and sixty-degree sphere around them. By doing this they are taught to defend within that area. Not sudden movements, they are taught to waste nothing. The movements are precise and conserve energy, the specialty of this style is to conserve your energy. By teaching the wielder to shrug off monster blows. They become capable fighters able to endure an insane amount of fights. But the Second Form Preaches good Footwork as much as Bladework. The Second Form is said to be one of the harder ones for people to master. Counter Attacking and Defensive Forms are all that are present in this form. Mastering the aspects of the Blade are perhaps one of the few things that make a wielder more dangerous than one could imagine. Third Form:
This Form is from the Sheath at all times. Meaning it's done from the draw phase before anything else. Now the draw phase is known as the beginning phase in this style. The user is capable of producing insane speed with their blows. But thinking only one style of draw exists is a mistake most make. Large blades are capable of producing this effect as well. By using the Third Form they can catch their enemy off guard. Combining it with the Lotus effects allows for a sneaky attack. This style can be used in different locations as the Sheath location isn't always in the sheath. For example, let's say a buster sword is used. The quick draw will come from their back or side in a thrust motion. This leaves creativity open when using the Third Form. While this style is rarely Mastered by many as they view it useless. A Master does presently live off the Third Form.Fourth Form:
The Final and hardest form to learn of them all. Only one person has ever mastered this form in particular. This Form practices dual blade usage. But by using the other forms while wielding the two blades. Some users do replace the blade with their sheath. Using whatever they can to produce an effect of it. Those rare few who do wield two blades are extremely deadly. This style uses a fast acrobatic style at times. But in the right hands, it can be slow or precise as well. While the Fourth Form specializes in two blades it does also mentor the idea of the other forms. Thus upon mastery of this Form, the user learns they can use the other forms while wielding two. The main goal of the Fourth Form is to teach the wielders how to use both hands effectively. While this sword form does focus on Dual wielding as it's focus. The ones who truly master it will become destroyers on a battlefield. This form is the hardest to Master because it goes against the other three forms to an extent. By teaching it's wielder to embrace the second blade and understand how to move or position it. Whereas before it was a singular focus on a sword. The training for any of the forms is hard, but to get the basics. Two threads are required with an additional one just to learn how to use it effectively in combat. Mastering it will take several threads of lessons from a Master of it himself. This style is not made for everyone and teaches an explosiveness and fighting as though feral. The very few capable of even executing a beginner status of this style. Are written down in legend among the Clan. However, many say only one has ever mastered the Forms completely. Tsubasa's Mastery over them is said to be beyond Perfect. He's able to wield both of his Zanpakutō and effectively combine or mix his forms together. Learning to do this will take ten threads. For those interested in learning how he does this feat of his.Crimson Lotus-Initial Lotus:
This is the first lotus known as the Crimson Lotus. It's opening a gate that is extremely hard to do. While it comes in different forms depending on the form used. The First Lotus is generally the same concept in a single move. The user first must have skills with the forms and be capable. But also, a master in strength is needed at least. The rest comes from the skill of the user. By swinging their blade with as much power and force as they can muster. The precise control creates a shockwave of gravity outwards. This pushes against people with amazing force. The kinetic power is enough to cut through buildings. By applying the first form the user is capable of doing this feat from any strike. They can do it from large or small swings of the blade. This control allows them to also control or change the angle of the lotus. Making it an adaptable sword move. In the second form the user performs this as a defensive measure. This sword strike cuts through the energy attacks sent at them. Bouncing them back against the enemy in question with overwhelming force. However, it is possible for it to be taken over if the enemy is stronger. It also can be canceled out sometimes by their power meeting in the right way. The Third Form uses it in a method that comes from a draw stance. This version of the Crimson Lotus is different from the others. The user's body becomes the tool for the force. Using the quick draw and power of their step to send massive force towards a single target. And finally, the Fourth Form the user is able to send out massive kinetic blows by swinging both blades and sending them different directions.Blue Lotus-Second Lotus:
The Second Lotus or the Blue one relies on different skills. Spell based powers that allow the user to perform some feats. Kierudo's illusion spell is based on this one as well. This Lotus requires an Advanced or higher in Kido or a form of magic. The user flicks their blade's edge sending out a ringing sound. This sound goes through the area and cuts up the enemies who hear it. However there is more to it, the spell works through this means. When the target hears the sound their body reacts to it as though it's been cut. Thus, an injury appears on the body like they'd been cut. They haven't truly been cut or wounded and if they've high enough Mental Deduction or focus they'll know. It is true that this can be used outside of just it's illusion practice. And doesn't change the forms very much. The Blue Lotus is the only spell based move in the artform. However if the user creates the right sound frequency they can cause their enemies eardrums to rupture. This move is highly reliant on the enemies hearing the blade. Tsubasa's version is updated however and does require more skills. This one is the older version and does have its own practical uses. While it isn't perfect it does have room for improvement for those that desire too. But as a swordsman, this is more to get an edge on a strong enemy. The Unabara styles use underhanded means at times. And this is merely one of them that happens to be present. All the others are legitimate sword techniques. That were designed for the purpose of killing the enemies. The Blue Lotus isn't favored by many Unabara but has saved lives. Its downfall is in the fact you have to hear it for anything to happen. And some warriors can see through the illusion of wounds. Emerald Lotus-Third Lotus:
This is a special move used by some but requires immense training. Master Weapon Skill or Zanjutsu is required to perform it. The Emerald Lotus focuses on something very fascinating. Indirectly wounding the enemies. It uses the force of the blow but sends a shockwave of cutting energy. Past the block attempt to slice the foe, making it wrong to block it. The injuries aren't generally fatal and experienced warriors won't budge. Or can at the very least read it well enough to avoid injury. In the first form, the user can control the direction of the shockwave. Making them able to direct which way it will end up going. This is limited however as they need to hit something solid for this to work. The Second Form does this by defending and creating the effect of the injury. The force of the enemies blow is put back on them by deflecting its force towards them. The Third Form is able to create a large backlash by sending speed and power into the quick draw. The Fourth form is capable of doing this with both blades at the same time or different time points.Purple Lotus-Fourth Lotus:
This Lotus involves a ton of footwork so the user must be excellent in that regard. Shunpo or General Speed Master is required for this. This method is known to be tiring but the user of it shoots around the battlefield at high speeds. Cutting down enemies with extreme speed, the purpose was to fight multiple foes at a time. By adjusting to this form the user can defend faster in the second form. Cut precisely while moving at high speeds in the first. In the third form, they are able to draw faster and use a proper posture in the stance. And in the Fourth the user gets to show off some speed with their blades moving about quickly. This style is and was designed to be used against more than one enemy. Purple Lotus while it does work the stamina over of those who try and use it. It does have benefits as it will allow the user much better footwork overall. Silver Lotus Dance-Fifth Lotus:
This is a special move that doesn't benefit from forms as it takes it's own. The user crouches a bit and brings their blade upwards. Putting their blade in a thrusting motion to begin the Sliver Lotus Dance. Master Strength, Speed, and Zanjutsu or Weapon Skills are needed for it. This move is highly demanding and doesn't allow room for errors. By shooting forward and thrusting the blade outwards in a stabbing motion. The user sends a huge amount of force out. Capable of taking chunks out of buildings if not dodged properly. The cutting and piercing power of it can be controlled based on their movement. This is a single sword move and cannot be done with two. Nor does it benefit from the forms. The Dances aren't able to benefit from forms at all. This is partly because they are very difficult to master in general. Learning them requires a great deal of practice which is why they are last. The Silver Lotus Dance requires mastery of the original four to use.Black Lotus Dance:
This requires mastery of all the other Lotus to use. This is a counter attack stance which the user enters them into a battle trance. By doing this they go into a hypersensitive state of combat awareness. Able to perform in seconds with extremely precise and deadly movements. The Black Lotus Dance is something always moving forward and seeming to fade in and out of sight. As the user is moving their feet around quickly with little room for breaking. However, this is just the beginning of the Black Lotus Dance's start point. The user grips their sword and prepares to move at the first sign of action. The Counter Stance of the Black Lotus goes on the Offensive after it's warmed up, By moving at extremely high speed in this battle like trance. They generate insane amounts of power. Blocking a blow from them can break bones and cause extreme damage alone. However, some warriors with high-level strength can handle trading with them.White Lotus Dance-Seventh Form:
The only form that is mostly used by duel wielding only.This form requires a Grand Master in General Speed or Shunpo. A Grand Master is also required in Zanjutsu or Weapon Skills to pull it off. To date, only one person has mastered this being Tsubasa himself. The user becomes a white ghost upon the battlefield. By combining the knowledge of the Lotus moves. They move around the battlefield almost as though dancing across it. This form is extremely hard to follow, as it has no set form. In fact, it's form can change at the drop of a dime. Making it extremely hard to follow as it's able to perform the other lotus while doing this. The user's only normally seen as a portion of white clothing they wear. It's like a blur moving around the battlefield. It's a very hard move to perform as any slip-ups can cost an inexperienced user. Making sure to use proper footwork is important but not nearly as how you hold or wield your sword during it. Some who have seen this before claim the sword disappears completely. That's because once it begins the blade is never still at any time. It's in constant motion making attempts to kill the enemy. While it can be dodged or counter attacked. The White Lotus is the most demanding form in the entire school for the Unabara. Attacking with relentless aggression making them a extremely fast blur on the field. While certain enemies will spot them coming the changing speeds and such is normally enough to catch most off guard.
Zanpakutō Spirit Name:Sealed:
Mushin EnenraBankai:Release Phrase:
"Kill Silently, Enenra"Zanpakutō Spirit Appearance:
(What does your characters Zanpuktō Spirit look like in their inner world? Please write at least 1 paragraph for this.)Zanpakutō Spirit Personality:
Kazuya's partner is a very silent individual, something they both share however they share a bond much deeper than that. The two have a way of communicating without words and share a deep bond, this could be borderline telepathy since the two work together in flawless sync. Inner World:
(What is your Zanpuktō's inner world like?)
Zanpakutō AppearanceSealed Appearance:
The sealed appearance of Kazuya's zanpakutō is one of surprising form, it takes the form of a nodachi. The sword is almost as large as he is which makes him have to wear it on his back although he is capable of changing its size due to the fact the sword is an extension of his soul. For this reason it also makes him able to wield the sword with little effort, in fact despite its size and weight it has the passive effect of being "light as air" which makes him able to wield it for long periods of time.
The sword itself is well crafted although has a very tiny aspect to it which makes it highly deadly. Along the blade there are microscopic barbs on it which adds a ripping effect to his slashes yet they are sharp enough to not get caught and still cut flesh like butter, however this painful addition has another aspect to it. At the point of these millions of barbs is actually a microscopic hole which allows his poison to seep out into wounds upon being cut or be released as a gas to infect his opponents without their knowledge in combat. which means the blade of his sword is hollow, attributing to some of its lightness and weightless feel.
In terms of scheme the sword has a grey colour to it, being made to be onyx due to the resemblance to grey. The sheathe is a dull grey with no designs on it, the handle however is wrapped in a light shade of grey cloth. Shikai Appearance:Bankai Appearance:
Kazuya's zanpakutô is very sharp, beyond even the regular sharpness which makes it very deadly. Its edge is so fine it can cut through flesh like it were nothing, it can easily cut and wound people although it can barely be felt as the blade is drawn across the skin which means he can cut people before they even feel it, this sharpness is also able to cut through reiatsu constructs with ease.Weightless:
The sealed for of Kazuya's Zanpakutō is weightless, despite the fact that most people can wield their ZanpakutōPoison Emission:
Upon entering his initial release Kazuya is capable of manipulating smoke to an incredibly high level, he can easily manipulate smoke to generate it from his sword and create a large area clouded in smoke, which allows for him to be able to create smokescreens with little effort to escape, or move about freely within his area of effect. He can easily move it away and separate the atoms that is the smoke to clear it and also make it denser until the point where the smoke could be considered so dense it is solid although really it is still gas, just so close and compact that it has solid attributes. His ability to manipulate smoke is commonly used to to negate the ability to use fire, by using smoke it makes oxygen nonexistent and as such by removing the oxygen from the area with smoke he can easily make his opponents begin to cough and suffocate in his smoke as well as force fire to fail by suffocating it to due to oxygen being needed for fire as a fuel source.
His special ability with smoke makes him quite powerful to others and his ability to systematically kill off large populations at once makes it truly a power to be reckoned with. The ability however still has much more to the aspects of its power, by manipulating the density of his personal things such as his body and sword he can turn them intangible and back to normal with precise timing, this gives him a way of negating most forms of methods to block his weapon due to the capability to turn it to smoke to pass through the defense before solidifying it and striking with a physical edge and this can also work vice-versa with his body simply by turning his body into smoke he can save himself from physical damage which in turn allows him to manipulate his appearance and body itself by turning into homogeneous matter which makes him appear as a cloud of smoke.
He can use this ability to also create hallucinations, usually this only works on those who spend enough time in the smoke that they are not getting enough oxygen although Kazuya has no control over what happens with these hallucinations although in many cases this can be considered best case scenario due to the fact that he can control the density of his smoke and as such can use it to solidify, in basic terms if you are in a large area of smoke which Kazuya created then if he were to manipulate some or all of that smoke and then solidified it he could create smoke constructs which could harm the targets or even simply crush them in the smoke.
Like everything there is a weakness, Kazuya's smoke isn't perfect and this could be attributed to the fact that those with the ability to create large gusts of wind could easily blow it away, thus making it harder to use against people like this. It is also, despite being made by him, able to be manipulated by outside forces which means those who manipulate gas could easily dispel his creation of smoke. Gas Manipulation:
The true ability of Enenra, despite the fact that smoke is a large part of the abilities used by Kazuya the release actually focuses on all gas, not just smoke, any and all gas is susceptible to this power although he often uses this ability in conjunction with Smoke Manipulation which has lead to many believing his shikai only controls smoke. Kazuya's shikai's true power is actually the ability to generate and manipulate chemical substances in gas form, this leads for a form of heat manipulation since a
