I. Basic Information» Name:
Jirou Yashida» Alias:
To be determined (See history section for further info.)» Gender:
He is aligned with the Gotei Reformed, he serves as a member to their Internal Affairs Division which he was relocated to after the reformation of the organisation.» Appearance Written:
Jirou has a body of an adolescent, which is muscled in a manner common to an athlete, but not to someone, who is constantly working out, and thus, lacks the impression of an intimidating guy. In fact, his slender figure is almost effeminate, and too innocent for others to be alarmed by his appearance - this is perhaps the most treasured thing in Jirou's appearance, matched by similarly innocent gestures and expressions, to create an illusion of harmlessness. His skin is like marble with it's slightly pale complexion, and his flesh is... perhaps not as hard as stone, yet as unyielding and tense as well, due to constantly forcing his body to it's limits. Even then, he has impressive flexibility, and great talent in acrobatics.
Anyone could agree on him being a beautiful boy, "bishounen", with his youthful appearance, almost effeminate features and a face, that you will never be able to forget. His flawlessness, apparent gender neutrality and innocence bring one into his control, where he can tell them whatever he wants and have it done. Jirou feels no qualms about using his innocence or desirability to trick and manipulate the people around him, and will do so for most of the time. His expression, aura and mannerism all appear to give an impression of an innocent youth, sort of an impression, that doesn't match his personality at all. Even in anger, his face remains extremely peaceful, and no matter how much he tries, wrinkles of stress never appear on his face of a baby. When he smiles, he becomes the sun of world, his smile shining on whoever he is giving it, and when he speaks, his voice is soft and melodious. He looks like a demi-god, and he uses this to his own advantage.
When it comes to his hair, it's messy on purpose, well-conditioned, and dark brown in colorization: it reaches just below his eyes, and is rarely seen worn in any specific manner. At the first glance, his eyes, the shining green orbs, are like stars, beautiful and tranquil in every sense, having the appearance of royal jewels of a faraway, foreign country. They channel an aura of purity, cleanliness and innocence, and give off the impression, that he has not seen world nor gotten his hands dirty. The color of jade it bears, is a symbol of union between wisdom and beauty, but it also represents an insatiable green fire, that devours everything on it's path, and a graceful poison, that subtly and silently murders it's victims.
It's not like Jirou intentionally seeks to be flashy with his clothing, but in the way he prefers to dress, that's exactly what he looks like. For a boy, his wardrobe is quite large, and seeing his face, it becomes quite obvious, that this guy is a metro-sexual. If he can, he wants to look good, when he is around other people, even though it is true, that he isn't the most outgoing person in the first place. His style could be best described as elegant and showy, with a tint of majestic touch to it, and a great emphasis on shades of green, especially on the rich shine of jade, and the colors of black and gold. Since he is sort of a workaholic, most of his clothing can be formal, and if not, they still wouldn't most likely be casual.
Jirou even has several shinigami uniforms to start out with. In the first one, he wears a black kosode and hakama, just like in the ordinary uniform, but the difference is, that outfit's kosode is a few cents shorter in the sleeves, so the shitagi underneath would become more visible, leaving the end of sleeves lightly pastel green instead of black. He also wears an intensively jade-colored obi sash, that is supposed to be white in the normal attire, and its longer than most, floating in the strong breeze. Jirou hates when his obi sash gets wet, because it becomes only troublesome by becoming heavier. Instead of pair of waraji sandals, he wears uwabaki-styled skin-tight slippers, on his feet, that are actually designed for women. He wears ordinary tabi-socks. This is Kento's most simple and ordinary, and so on, worn only on occasions which would demand simplicity in terms of his clothing.
For the secondary uniform, he has something else. Instead of a shihakusho, he wears a black vest with golden buttons and lining, and a high collar with gold tassels attached to corners: underneath he wears a black, skin-tight shirt that extends to his elbows. Usually, he wears fingerless white tekko, covering his arms up to his elbows. With this attire, he wears loose, black-colored pants and same footwear as in the first one, and no obi, meaning he doesn't carry Zanpakutō with this uniform.
In some uniform variations, he wears a hood as well, in others he might have a golden linings all over the attire, while sometimes, he might be wearing cut-off shoulders shihakusho or an uniform without sleeves. One day, you can see him with wrapped up sleeves and uwa-obi,and on the next, he might be wearing more of a robe with massive sleeves. He has countless amount of outfits to go as an uniform, and it would be futile to list them all, so let's just forget 'bout them, and move to what he wears usually.
There is a certain green coat he has a liking of, and which he wears in missions outside of Seireitei, or in the battlefield. In times of war, he might be wearing shin guards and chain-mail armor shirt. His favorite footwear is uwabaki-styled shoes, usually of green color, and black bobby socks without any decorations. In the laboratory, he wears a normal lab coat and glasses over the attire, while in formal events, he might be seen wearing unique kimonos, robes or something nobody expects to see worn.
Aside from clothing, he wears his hair either free, bound or shaped, and is an user of jewelry and perfumes. Sometimes, he also covers his neck with a long green-colored scarf of cotton, and wears a pedant, made of black string and jade gems, which both seem to be trinkets of his past.
In human word, he tends not to wear this kind of clothing. For a moment, he is allowed to be in form a normal human, and in this special moment, he wants to wear human clothes. He wears either black or brown jeans, a black shirt under a green hoodie and good running shoes almost every time he is in World of Living. The hoodie has white lining, and even though it's long sleeved, Jirou likes to wrap the sleeves to make them shorter: the hood is white, while the rest of hoodie is green, and it has two pockets in the chest, and another two in the sides.
II. Personality» Personality:
Despite his small physical figure, Jirou is one of the fiercest individuals of his division, which he actually views as the reason he has gotten this far. He prefers not to stay quiet about his opinions on something, while most people on his division do the exact opposite in fear of being made human bombs. It's not like he wouldn't be aware of the risk related to it, but it's against his personal moral to keep his mouth shut, if he sees that something is not right. He is not afraid of fighting against an opinion he does not agree with, even if it belongs to a superior of his, but this doesn't mean he is hostile against every opinion, that is not his.
While he surely has some sense of self-preservation, and doesn't mean he is cocky or dumb enough to risk his life, Jirou is known to be rather martyring. He would much rather die, because he said his opinion, than die without saying what was on his mind, believing strongly in one's right to say what they think. He is a boy, who stands in front of his own values and his priorities, and this is why he will interfere on a matter he doesn't agree on. His respect for honesty makes him disrespectful towards those who lie and cheat, and also makes Kento a quite honest person himself. Yes, truth might hurt, but it's something every single person should be able to handle in his opinion.
To him, values come before orders.
He is cold, merciless and harsh on his words. Having little to no interest in nonsense, and having no tolerance for people who cannot separate emotion and work, he doesn't necessarily mean to hurt you, but usually he will. When someone attacks him verbally, he returns the favor, believing that offence is your best defense, and this philosophy affects other things too, namely his views of vengeance. Should someone do harm to him or his work, he pays back with force that is of an entirely unseen degree: if you are often around him, he also tends to make your life very miserable and painful every single day as well. Consider him vindictive.
Jirou is an extreme collectivist, meaning he holds a group in much higher importance than an individual, while most of his colleagues are seeking their personal benefit. His loyalty for his affiliations could be compared to that of a dog, because everyone knows, that even though he might seem somewhat rebellious with his fierce attitude, he is prepared to die for his superiors. In fact, there is nothing he hates more than people who are unable enough to follow their chosen cause or superiors till the end. In his eyes, the greatest crime, that one can commit, is to betray their subject of loyalty to save their own skin or to gain greater benefits; he doesn't get along with traitors, and is more than eager to punish them with death, rather than imprisonment. He is willing to do anything, that would benefit his division.
One could see him as an overachiever, and in a sense, this is true. He wouldn't be standing where he is now, if he couldn't show other people, that he could still beat them, even if his physical figure didn't hint so. And ever since deciding he would join Division Twelve before the reformation, he studied almost every area of science, ranging from medicine to technology. He had to be as good as others were, if not better, if he wanted to prove himself worthy; Jirou is skilled combatant and scientist, and feels like home, when he is being drowned in work. Years have also allowed him to become very thorough in his work, while on a downside to this, he doesn't accept imperfection, always demanding for perfection, from others and himself. He could also be seen as somewhat ambitious person, determined to advance his position in the group and advance the position of group in the spiritual and material worlds.
He likes to keep emotions and work away from each other. Through his early years as a shinigami, he hated how his feelings messed with his ability to calculate and make decisions, leading into critical mistakes, but later on, he developed a mental capability to separate emotion and work. This means, that below his emotionless shell, he actually feels something.
Inside, he could be considered someone full of life, though this rarely shows to the outside. Jirou does love life itself, having fun, doing outrageous things, travelling around and seeing all of the beautiful things in his world; however, he decided to suppress this side of himself a long time ago, in order to become a success in his division. Generally an enigmatic shinigami, he likes to keep this side hidden, but one might notice pieces of a person buried inside him, revealing that he hasn't always been a bad person.
That said, he could be considered highly aware of himself, his memories, his feelings and his thoughts. Jirou truly has a profound understanding of himself, knowing what are his own weaknesses and what are his strengths, and how he feels about himself and other people. There is rarely a moment, when he is unsure of how he is feeling or what he is thinking: a result of great introspection process. He can separate an artificial though or memory from a real one, and has proven to be quite enduring at illusions, that affect himself.
Not an ordinary researcher, Jirou has been involved in a lot of conflicts, and unlike most members of his squad, he has fought in the front lines himself. If anything, his experiences of the battlefield have only made him stronger and smarter. For instance, it has allowed him to become quite experienced at perceiving his environment, picking up details all around him, picture things in his mind and build complex strategies in a few seconds. Now, these same skills are proven as useful in the laboratory as in the battlefield, alongside the skills he has learned through study and reading books. He is shown to be pretty creative and far-seeing, whenever it might be demanded.
Much more philosophical thinker than you'd expect, he can be found wondering mysteries and questions of existence on the first day, and definitions and meanings of beauty on the next. He pays attention to the subtle messages of the universe and soft whispers of the nature, seeks knowledge of his own role in this world, and watches the work of greater forces in awe. Jirou is capable of arousing questions in others with his thoughtfulness, but even this is nothing compared to his deep understanding of universe and ability to watch the world from a different point of view for a moment.
He can be pretty ruthless in combat, but even more merciless he is when it comes to work. It could be said, that he has a twisted sense of moral and justice, since he is capable of authorizing massacres of innocent people and isn't below killing those who are far weaker than he is, out of annoyance. When it comes to price of human life, only thing than is worth of something to him is the body, which in the other hand, doesn't have a high worth anyways. This makes him look like a monster to some, but he has some quite unreasonable moral restrictions, many of which are not known to others.
Yet, Jirou is a pretty selfless person. His work comes before himself and things like his own personal health, because he knows he is doing it for Soul Society and Gotei Reformed, leading him into becoming sort of a salt-of-the-earth shinigami. Someone, who will always look at the benefits for the community before even giving a thought for the individual gain, which would be a valid reason for his opinions on human life.
This makes him manipulative on some occasions. He simply doesn't care for any feelings, thoughts or free will of an individual: the opinions, emotional states and choices of a group or a society do matter to him, in the other hand. Jirou is hardly social, kind of introverted, but while he doesn't enjoy being in crowds or interacting with several people, it's not uncommon for him to push himself through it to do his job. He isn't uneasy around others, it's just not common of him of be social.
Jirou doesn't like letting people too close or allow them to build emotional ties to him very often, so, he keeps interacting with others professional and as minimal as possible. Carefully measuring every word before say them aloud is necessary for him, since he couldn't forgive himself if he told someone of professional secrets. He is usually respectful, unless he is given a reason not to be, whenever he is around allies or friends.
Sort of a judgmental and skeptic person, Jirou is cautious of people, because he knows what kind of monsters can disguise themselves as sheep. Very quick on analyzing his targets, within moments he can tell what kind of person you are, maybe even some details: a hour with someone, and he has a full mental profile of you. It's futile to lie to him, because one way or another, he will always know, from the moment you open your mouth.
To personal enemies and enemies of his superiors, he is extremely cold and merciless. He believes in never giving them anything they could use against you, and in never allowing a traitor to live unless there is an order for them to be brought back unharmed (which he will honor only on certain circumstances). Most likely, he will execute enemies he defeats immediately, but on some occasions, he imprisons them for torment or experimentation.
When it comes to love, it's almost out of reach to him, and to most, it seems he wouldn't be able to love anyone back if they fell for him. He can be a passionate lover for a while, but it never lasts, if he doesn't feel true attraction to the person. He is sapiosexual, meaning he finds intelligence the most sexiest thing in others.
III. History» History:
Jirou's story starts many years ago when he was born to the young Sumiko Yuudeshi and her boyfriend at the time and later her husband Datara Yashida. He was born as the second son of her children hence his name literally meaning "second son" in Japanese. Jirou spent very little time with his mother as a child, instead he was mainly looked after her family more than her as she was prone to disappear and come back once every two years give or take and even then that was for a day. This lead to him developing a very strong disdain for his mother due to her nature, he spent more time with uncles Shadin and Zin than her, something that greatly annoyed him and lead to his bitter and apathetic nature.
His unattractive attitude quickly pushed people away from him from a young age with the exceptions to his siblings and close family but even then he was still quite the little shit to them. His anger however proved to be an excellent motivator to make him stronger, he was revealed to be quite the prodigy and quickly picked things such with his aptitude and ability to decipher and understand things easily. It actually was one of the leading factors to him being quite skilled in kido due to his ability to analyse and break down a spell which allowed for him to easily cast it once he knew the basics.
This ability to understand also lead to him learning his shikai release from such a young age, his attitude towards learning it brought him face to face with his spirit and after a brutal training session, he was rewarded with her name. This relationship grew quite close although he still showed her a very dull and rude side of himself she was able to see past a bit of his guise and knew there was still good in him just buried deep within his soul.
When he was twelve he joined the shino academy and passed two years later with incredibly high marks and he joined the Twelfth division later that year. The division worked well with him due to the fact his vindictive and apathetic attitude made him fit in quite nicely. He was later moved to the internal affairs division when the Gotei was reformed and served as a member ever since.
[AUTHOR'S NOTE: Jirou is the son of another one of my character's which are a WIP. This section will be filled in as Sumiko Yuudeshi's history is developed.]
[NOTE #2: Some aspects of this history may be edited in the future.]
As a member of the Gotei Reformed he is prone to being seen with the odd piece of equipment from the organisation although has little to no personalised equipment for himself.
V. Racial Techniques/Abilities/SkillsKIDO» Eishōhaki [Incantation Abandonment]:
A kido technique, that allows the caster abandon the use of spoken incantation entire, without having to sacrifice the full strength of spell: you see, anyone can perform an incantationless kido spell, but the power of spell is always greatly reduced by the lack of incantation, and that's the difference between that and this technique. By abandoning an incantation the caster also decreases the amount of time necessary for casting the spell, allowing quicker casting than usual.» Nijū Eishō [Two-Fold Incantation]:
A kido technique, that allows the caster to perform two separate kido spells at the same time, by mixing the incantations of the two spells together; it doesn't just save precious time, but also confuses a shinigami opponent, who is not sure what kido the caster is going to use. If used in conjunction with Eishōhaki, the caster will be able to cast two different spells at the same time, without an incantation, with a small risk (25%) of both of the spells failing.» Fusshoku Oni [Dispelling Demon]:
A technique, which acts as the proof of his proficiency with spiritual energies and ultimately his understanding for the manipulation of energy's composition. While there exists a similar technique, called Hanki, which is capable of nullifying energy, speed and strength of an attack directed to them, but one could not really compare it with this phenomenon, where the user rather dispels or breaks down the energy, rather than nullifying it. The practitioner uses his knowledge of differences between spiritual energies, and manipulates this knowledge into making any energy-based attack fall apart into bits of harmless energy; in case of reiatsu/reiryoku/reishi based physical attacks, the speed and the strength is dispelled as well, simply stopping the opponent if the technique is successful. While it is effective on weaker combatants the technique cannot overpower incredibly strong attacks used by equal level opponents or attacks done by stronger opponents. Although this doesn't mean it is completely useless as the technique can weaken the effectiveness of the energy-based attack. Due to the complexity of the technique he can only use it a maximum of six times a thread although usually he begins to feel the negative effects of the technique after the fourth post. The two more times after that really pushes his limits.» Gyakukidō [Reverse Spirit Way]:
A very unique kido technique, that is far beyond what a standard officer would be able to learn: this technique is a testimony of his reputation as a kido specialist. He is capable of turning offensive destruction spells into defensive or binding spells, by switching the poles of kido composition, and in other words, switch a Hadō spell into a Bakudo spell, reversing the type of the kido. If desired, effect of kido can be reversed as well, leading into countless of possible results, like making a repulsion spell an attraction/magnetism spell. This is a powerful form of kido manipulation, since it crafts an entirely new kido within less than a second, and would be considered genius even by the top class practitioners. Also to be noted is despite the usefulness of this technique he is currently unable to do this ohigher level spells due to the complexity of the spell increasing as it gets stronger, which limits it to spells up to a level sixty spell. Only able to be used three times per thread.» Mahōhada [Magic Skin]:
A very basic kido technique that was created by Jirou to advance his knowledge of kido and spells. He initially created this in an attempt to gain similar benefits to the Arrancar's Hierro however he later learned it could be applied so much more and it allows him to infuse different kido spells into or just above his skin to achieve a variety of effects, this allows him to use spells such as Sōkatsui to coat himself in the blue flames of the spell or even something such as Hōrin spell which allows him to repulse something that comes into contact with him. How he uses this technique is dependent on what it does. Now placing a spells affeects on one's body is incredibly hard and mentally draining, he can only use this a maximum of five times per thead with exhaustion beginning to set in after the third use.
VI. Sealed Powers » Zanpakutô Name:
Gyokūryū [lit. Jade Dragon]» Spirit Appearance:
Gyokūryū, in her true form, appears a female jade dragon of great beauty, exactly as her name suggests. The dragon's body is completely ethereal, being composed of jade-tinted light and several flammable gaseous chemicals, while in fact, the details of body are quite visible. Her scales always shine like a sunset of green color, and her strong figure is built elegantly, like she was a queen of her kind. She must be at least twelve times bigger than her shinigami master in this form, if not more.
Like her appearance, her aura is rather majestic. She is capable of speaking verbally or telepathically as a dragon, and her voice is far more melodious than of any woman. In her back, she has a set of wings, so it's pretty obvious that she can fly. Also, she is capable of breathing green fire.
It's not uncommon for a Zanpakutō to be able to manifest in multiple forms, and so, Gyokūryū can appears as she wishes. However, outside her dragon form, she prefers to appear as a woman, whose clothes seems to be made of jade itself. She might be young or old, but either way, there is an aura of enigma and wisdom around her; she always seems to have green eyes brighter than stars itself, a flawless skin and long hair of varying colors, that she usually wears in a Chinese top knot.» Spirit Personality:
To the outside, Gyokūryū, could be considered extremely enigmatic dragon, who is not only ridiculously wise, but also who knows a lot more than she lets on; as a result, her advice comes mainly in form of symbolic words, poetry, questions and metaphors. While she could help her master by providing him knowledge of what he should do, she prefers to keep most information to herself and encourages him to listen to his heart, which utterly annoys him.
Her role is to be a guide and a teacher, when it comes to spirituality and spiritual growth, but years have pushed her closer with her master than he is with anyone else; she is like a mother figure, or at least, she loves him like he would be her son. While not necessarily protective, Gyokūryū doesn't enjoy putting him in danger or seeing him harmed in general, and while she denies to feel anything like worry for him, her heart always skips a beat when his life is threatened. As a part of her master's soul, she is capable of sensing any thought or feeling of his at all times, in addition to having access into his memories.» Zanpakutô Appearance:
Even when the Zanpakutō lies on it's sealed state, all aspects of Gyokūryū's power and elegance become apparent to outsiders. Forged personally for Jirou, it's a katana of the shorter kind, and like all katanas, it has a handle built to be held with both hands. In a sense, it is perceived as more of an ornament than an instrument of war, even though it has proven to be quite proficient with causing bloodshed and severing heads from bodies.
It has a handle with jade colored silk cord wrapping, with tiny pieces of jade gems placed as decoration. The sheath is lacquered black, but where is artistic paintings of green color in it. When it comes to guard, it's the only part of Zanpakutō that is completely made of jade, and it takes the shape of heptagram.
The Zanpakutō's blade itself is made of light metal, that naturally yields a little when it clashes against another swords, yet has smaller chance of breaking than those blades than are more unyielding. When swung, the blade moves with gracefulness and quite swiftly, because of it's lighter composition, when compared to an ordinary katana: the edge is made to be extremely sharp and because of this, it phases through flesh and bone quite easily. It's slightly curved in the shape, when closely looked at.» Sealed Zanpakutô Power:
It's an ability, that allows the wielder of Zanpakutō to reach immunity to high temperatures, meaning while they can feel hot, they are immune to burning hot temperatures and anything that would be too painful to touch. Now, while it's called immunity, fire/heat-based of those who are much tronger than him are able to still burn him with powerful abilities. He can also channel this ability to his clothing and blade as well. The source of this ability is somewhat unique as well. The reiatsu of Zanpakutō is pumped into his veins, creating a resistance to his own flames and flames of anyone else via enhancing the body.
VII. Shikai» Shikai Release Phrase:
"Illuminate the sea and the sky. Paint the horizon in fire. Gyokūryū."» Shikai Appearance:
Now, after the release phrase has been spoken, the Zanpakutō reveals it's true radiance and unimaginable beauty of it's spirit in form of a blade. It becomes the true ornament and the representation of her power, and while the sealed appearance was considered as such, this form just goes beyond from that: no man could ever build such a beauty, and it should be heavily considered whenever it is actually work of the gods or not. However, in it's beauty, there is monstrosity and deadliness hidden inside, which lead the enemies into state of bliss when they are killed by such a beauty.
The Zanpakutō is now shorter, size of a wakizashi, and it wasn't overstating, when it was called a sword no smith could forge. It's entirely made out of jade. Not only the handle and guard, but the blade itself, is now composed of the expensive, yet more than durable jewel. It shines in it's greatness, whenever the light hits it, and it's said, that in this new form, the imperfections of the former beauty are now fixed.
For example, it doesn't yield anymore, and instead, could make the hardest blades of all yield under it's strength, and it's not curved anymore. It sharpness is on new level too, and with one perfect swipe, it passes through an enemy like there was only air inside them, and due being lighter than ever, it moves more swifter than in the sealed form. The sheath is made of the same material as the blade and is now used as a weapon as deadly as the Zanpakutō itself: when it comes to handle, it's wrapped in tight jade-colored strings that shine like jewel. It seems that guard is the only part not changed.» Shikai Abilities:
This Zanpakutō possesses a very peculiar ability, one that hasn't been seen in the history of Soul Society before, and it's the ability to generate Greek fire: an extremely dangerous, volatile form of artificial flame, that is more than famous for it's ability to burn in extreme circumstances, like underwater or without oxygen, for it's ability to burn down entire metropolises when a mere drop is spilled, and for it's unique colorization of jade and green. It's original form is a green, shining liquid, which when sparked, bursts into magnificent jade-colored flames of great size. Composed of a few known and many foreign chemicals, it reacts with/is sparked by spiritual energy and tactile contact with living only. Because of the volatile nature, the reaction of the liquid turning into flame is strong enough to cause impact.
The process of generation is pretty simple. At it's most basic, the wielder swings the Zanpakutō, which produces the unique fluid and sends it into the air, before setting it alight with his reiatsu to bring the flames to life. It doesn't need oxygen, combustible or temperature to burn, because the chemicals produce all of this by themselves, which is a huge advantage, since it will catch it's surrounding in green flames as well, without much chances of it being extinguished. Only way to stop the flames is to surround it with object, that wont catch fire (water doesn't work here), and wait until it has burned out by itself.
The liquid itself, is highly acidic, meaning if it comes in contact with wounds or is ingested as it is, it will cause the victim formidable agony. This means, that if using fire is out of question for some good reason, the chemical liquid, that the blade is capable of producing, is enough to burn the targets. In case the fire doesn't spread, and remains trapped/unable to catch other objects in fire, it will burn out in 5 posts, but it has the potential of remaining aflame forever if it is fed from the outside.
The Acidic properties of this ability is limited to the affected's durability, at the beginner level the affected will feel incredible agony and it will be highly corrosive to both the body and spiritual defences. At the adept level the target's feel a painful sting on the affected area and can be quite painful after a while, spiritual defences are able to hold for about a single post before breaking down. At the advanced level the opponent will feel slight pain in the affected area band spiritual defences are able to hold for four posts. At the master level this fire is ineffective against the opponent and all they will feel is a very minor pain in their affected area and their spirual defences are able to hold.
[NOTE: The opponent will not feel the fire until it has bypassed any and all obstacles so if the arrancar has Hierro then the person will not be affected by the fire until that is eliminated, same with any other defence technique or ability.]
- Ryūhimaku [Dragon's Coat]: If the blade is able to produce liquid, that turns into green fire, and the wielder of Zanpakutō is immune to flames, then, isn't it only logical for the to possess a technique to coat themselves in fire. The wielder can spill the liquid from the blade to their skin or clothing, just a finger or their entire body, and even their blade, via use of the base ability of Zanpakutō, and then spill it whenever they wish so. It makes close quarter combat very difficult for your foes, and you're literally on fire for the next moments, so you're gonna be visible: because of Greek fire's laws, it will last only for 5 posts.
- Gyokūkōzan [Jade Mine]: Like said, the liquid reacts with spiritual energy, but physical contact with living things works as well. That was the thought, when the wielder came up with this ability. By leaving small circles of the fluid in the ground, he could create Greek fire mines, which explode wildly into flames when someone touches them or when the wielder sparks it himself with reiatsu.
- Ryū no Shikyū [Womb of the Dragon]: Creating a larger circle of the fluid in the ground, the wielder can create either a barrier made out of greek fire or a burning trap for their enemies, but the latter can prove not so wise, since the fire has possibility of spreading or burning whatever is inside. As a shield however, it's rather useful, since only the most reckless out of his enemies will jump into the flames and try to break through. It lasts for 5 posts, as all of shikai techniques.
- Taikyaku-hi [Fire's Retreat]: Because of the flames of this ability have potential to burn forever, there must be a technique capable of extinguishing the fire, in case there is a situation, that demands the wielder to be able to do so. It releases strong reiatsu impulse to the flames' composition, causing the chemicals to burn out immediately and kill the fire off: in fact, this technique is the only one in wielder's shikai, that indicates control over the flames beyond the generation of Greek fire.
