Kido, Hoho, Zanjutsu and Hakuda Techs and abilities here.• Extended Life-Spans:
This is quite the unique trait that Shinigami possess over that of Human's. For, unlike human's, Shinigami can retain their visible youth for the many countless centuries to come. Those who are keenly in-tune with their spiritual energy can even greatly expand their lifetimes by upwards of fifty-percent more than usual. More than that, it seems to also reside over into the cosmetic side of things. As trained Shinigami with a good control of their Reiryoku can utilize it in order to preserve their youth for further prolonged periods of time. Furthermore, with the improvements in Modern Medicine over the past few centuries, there are also many various treatments available to Shinigami in order to enhance both their life-spans and physical appearance if need be at times. • Reiryoku And Reiatsu:
Most Shinigami naturally possess good quantities of Reiryoku, otherwise known as Spiritual Power. The level of their Reiryoku varies greatly from Shinigami to Shinigami. As the more of this inner energy they possess, the stronger a Shinigami's abilities will become, the more keen their senses will be and overall they will be a much more difficult being to kill as their supernatural affinity grows and strengthens as their volume of Spiritual Power expands. Additionally, it also grants them the capacity to detect other spiritual beings without needing to resort to their five basic senses. This is achievable because most types of supernatural creatures emit various levels of Reiryoku which can be detected by a Shinigami. Although, the level in which they can sense varies from Shinigami to Shinigami, for the most part almost every member of this pieces can detect it to an extent.
Furthermore, based on the fact that most creatures which possess Reiryoku have different patterns of Spiritual Energy radiating from them, more trained individuals can even tell the difference between allies, friends and even other races. They may even be able to gauge their comrades psychological state, for sudden changes in spiritual energy is a sure sign that they are either fighting or have received great injury. This detection system also allows for them discern the spiritual patterns of other races. As, for example, the Reiryoku pattern of Arrancar are quite simple to realize the difference of from that of a Plus, Shinigami or Human.
And, to boot, if a Shinigami is able to continually train their Reiryoku, more interesting developments can occur. One of these improvements is the fact that more advanced level Shinigami are able to control the quantities of spiritual energy which emits from their body. If they were to entirely block this phenomena out, then they could complete hide their presence away from other sorts of spiritual beings. The reverse effect of this, however, is known as Reiatsu, more commonly called as Spiritual Pressure. This is often considered a great show of power, and in the hands of a skilled individual, can become a form of an attack by itself. Those with high volumes of reiatsu can utilize it to paralyze opponents in some cases, cause direct damage to the surrounding vicinity; including living beings and objects alike and essentially produce other variable effects on the world around them.
Should weaker level souls be around a SHinigami of extreme power, and they decide not to control it, it's even possible for their reiatsu to easily kill lower level beings if they did not realize how much spiritual energy they leak from their body. If someone were in great control of their reiatsu, however, they could even begin to alter the area around them. Such as if one were of a elemental origin, they could infuse these properties into their spiritual pressure in order to produce a freezing effect if they were a ice-based user, or an immense heating effect if they happened to be a Shinigami whom possessed a great deal of supernatural ability in the art of fire bending. More than just that, more skilled users can even use their reiatsu to harden their skin in order to effectively protect themselves from a wide variety of attacks. Sometimes leading to varied Shinigami battles occasionally leading to one whom possess a greater level of spiritual pressure if they have nothing else left to fight with.
It's also worth mentioning, as a final note, most Shinigami have different reiatsu based colors based on their personality. If one were to have a feisty temper, then chances are they'd have a red, orange or even white spiritual aura around them. While if a Shinigami were more calm, composed and in control of themselves they may very well have a reiatsu shade of green or blue. What's more, some being can infrequently produce shape or solid forms of their spiritual pressure. Such as one with an animal based Zanpakutō having their spiritual energy take the shape of a bear or one with an affinity for death having that of a skull emerge behind them.
And so, with all the above said, these two tools are of great value and use to Shinigami. Use them with caution.• Enhanced Endurance:
This is quite a noticeable feature in the race of Shinigami. Most Shinigami in general possess a very high tolerance to pain and injury than their human and Plus Spirit predecessors. For what would normally be considered a critical to life threatening injury to a human, a Shinigami would have far higher rates of survival due to the greater amounts of power behind an assault that would be required to essentially kill a Shinigami. An example of this would be a slash to the chest by a Shinigami who is roughly on a Seated Officers level. If this individual had been a regular human, chances are they'd have a good chance of dying from copious amounts of blood loss associated with the tear in their chest. However, since they ascended to that of a Shinigami, they are able to take multiple blows to the chest until they are finally put to a rest. Henceforth, one of the most ensured ways to kill a Shinigami is normally by slashing their head off. • Konso:
This is the course of action most Shinigami go through in order to send wandering Souls in the Human World or other realms and send them to their respective place. If they had lead a neutral or acceptable life, the most probable place a spirit would end up is in the Soul Society. If the subject in question had lead a destructive life that was full of senseless murders, endless amounts of theft and causing general pain upon others, then they'd generally be sent to the pits of Hell itself. Moving onward from that, Konso is usually carried out by using the hilt of a Shinigami's Zanpakutō to press against the forehead of a Soul; thus transporting them into the afterlife. However, it is possible for more skilled Shinigami to perform a mass version of this through a massive burst of their spiritual energy in emergency circumstances. It's also worth noting that this can be applied to other races as well; but the Shinigami actually has to kill them in combat. So, for example, a Shinigami can send a supernatural human to the Soul Society if they engaged in a battle and the Shinigami ended up slaying the human.• Purging Sinister Souls:
When a Shinigami is able to kill a Hollow with their Zanpakutō, this process generally leads to them being purged of their sins. After this effect has taken place, a hollow will typically revert back to their previous state as a Plus and will be led back into the pits of the Soul Society. This transformation system is called sublimation; it's essentially a form of rebirth which Shinigami are able to perform. Though, it should be noted that not all Hollows are sent to the Soul Society. Being that Shinigami only have the capacity to cleanse any wrong-doing this being had done after ascending to a hollow, Hollow's which committed heinous acts in their human lives will still be sent back to hell after they are destroyed. In the case of Demon's, however, if a Shinigami becomes powerful enough, they will attempt to purify their soul so that they can be reborn again as either a Human, or, if they feel the threat is too dangerous, simply send them to the pits of hell. This can also be applied to other races such as other Shinigami, Sugiura and so forth. They'll simply be returned to the Soul Cycle when killed by a Shinigami.» Psionic Abilities: » Telekinesis:
Kazuya is well known for his psychic abilities. He tends to use his telekinesis to a great level in battle and in general life, to define his ability it is simply the manipulation of objects or anything that is constructed by matter with his mind. This allows Kazuya a range of feats which attribute to his versatile and flexible power. Telekinesis allows for a variety of functions on his behalf, due to its nature the entirety of its range cannot be described but it allows him to achieve feats such as binding an object or person in a single spot, even lifting cars or other objects with nothing but the mind, his ability can be employed to achieve the ability to manipulate even himself to achieve flight, heightened levels of strength, speed and other achievements with his psychic energy that is produced to enact on the physical matter/objects.
On the most basic level of his ability he can use his telekinesis to achieve simple feats. Moving objects with his mind, which is pretty easy and the smaller they are the easier it is. He can harness his ability to hold someone still, use objects as projectiles or even simply increase his body's capacity by manipulating his body with telekinesis or achieve flight. This is merely the tip of the iceberg for Kazuya though, using the basic level often doesn’t take that much mental effort to do. The only real thing that can cause problems is something such as trying to stop a meteorite due to its mass and velocity, he could also potentially be overwhelmed if he tries to apply this in too many objects which could be detrimental to his ability.
As Kazuya goes into the further depths of his power and into more advanced applications he is capable of much more powerful feats such as instead of simply moving objects he can will the object to hit the target to achieve a form of tracking projectile. At this point he can also achieve more diverse effects on objects, examples which he is known for is crushing something with his willpower or even making it explode and break to pieces, and even reconstruct them to a certain degree, however when only using a small level of his powers he cannot induce the reconstruction of something as complex as the human cell, it would be more akin to objects with more basic components. Kazuya can also use his ability to figure something out like an object and how it works by coating it with psychic energy to figure out its inner workings. Due to the higher skill of manipulation of the energy that his mind uses to achieve these feats he is capable of using it in an augmenting fashion to boost his body’s natural abilities, and also generate telekinetic constructs such as extra limbs, which he can use them for defensive and supportive purposes.
Going further into the ability where the limits are approached but not yet reached. His skills in the manipulation can achieve feats where he can enact his telekinesis onto organic matter and using telekinesis he can forcefully make the cell divide and rapidly regenerate to cause the body or organic substance to heal. He can also use psionic energy to great destruction by creating explosions with the energy. Where Kazuya reaches his limits is when he begins trying to manipulate the very fundamentals of physics. While not impossible if he were to attempt to try and manipulate something such as gravity or matter on the lowest levels he easily puts himself in danger of passing out and possibly getting brain damage or even death.
“Add in Limitations and Weaknesses here”» Telepathy:
Kazuya is also known to utilise telepathy in his psionic power set, the basic levels of his telepathy mainly just include very simple abilities such as being able to receive thoughts and emotions from people, communicating with people in secret and silently which is very basic. He is also able to pick up on people’s thoughts and hone in on a person or small groups to attempt to hear their thoughts. Aside from that he must go a little deeper into his ability to reveal the more powerful stages.
A little further into the true potential of his ability begins to allow him more complex feats such as mentally binding his opponent instead of physically binding them where willpower would be more important than physical strength. Another example would be to take in vast amounts of knowledge and give them to power via his telepathy which allows a very quick learning process through projection and also the ability to replicate it. As he goes a little deeper into his ability one begins to notice a much higher level of messing with the mind, as he can achieve feats such as looking into someone’s memories and project his being into someone’s mind as a mental image and access them although in many cases it usually makes him enter the inner world of a shinigami or the physical manifestation of one’s mind where he can also alter how they perceive the world around them achieving a limited ability of creating an illusion.
Kazuya’s ability can allow him the ability to achieve a level where he can limit someone’s potential to make them limited, an example is if someone knew they could use their Zanpakutō but Kazuya mentally inhibited them then they would have to find another way around the limitation or somehow take away his concentration as to make the inhibitor fail. His ability can mask his psychic presence and even allow him to track certain people through mentally pinpointing their minds, he can resist and/or negate outside attempts to use telepathy, illusions or other psychological factors on him.
As one continues to explore the possibilities it is not impossible for Kazuya to be able to allow other people to use him to communicate with others telepathically, if he could focus on a specific mind he can even use the senses to his advantage to perceive what his target sees or even reaching the level when he can manifest his or others thoughts to be visible to others although this manifestation is only a visual picture and cannot be interacted with.» Extrasensory Perception (ESP):
The original idea of the Meta-psycho project was to enhance the brain's capacity to enhance the sensory capabilities of the brain and thus grant inhuman capabilities to perceive the world, this ultimately had an extraordinary effect on the participants and gave them what people would describe as a "sixth sense", they were incredibly perceptive as the part of their brain dedicated to awareness made them also capable of enhancing their senses to the point of being able to read someone or something and understand them completely, it was one of these reasons the project was feared by those who held secrets.
Due to the nature of this ability his natural senses such as hearing, sight, taste etc are all enhanced well beyond what they normally would be this ultimately gives him the innate ability to see great distances and on multiple levels such as varying levels of vision, this includes radiation, infrared and UV even X-Ray. As well as being able to see a wider range of colours and being able to be highly aware of movement with a further peripheral vision making him a hard person to sneak up on, however that is simply his eyes. He has a very keen sense of hearing which if necessary can be manipulated to lower levels although he tends to be able to hear things up to hundreds of metres away from him at its highest level. His sense of smell and touch are also vastly improved to the point of being able to learn what makes up something just by smelling or tasting it when it comes to food and some chemicals. His last enhanced sense is her sense of tactile feeling, his sense of touch makes him very sensitive making him able to feel his body in so many ways that pain and pleasure can be enhanced although like everything else it can be manipulated so it isn't so sensitive.
Despite the benefits it gains from his higher sensory capabilities it is nothing compared to what has been dubbed "the sixth sense". Kazuya possesses unnatural abilities when it comes to this "sixth sense", he acquires traits like clairvoyance to be able to visually see things when he shouldn't be able to, this includes things such as seeing through walls, being aware of his surroundings on a omnidirectional basis with no explain as to why or how. Another common aspect of this is Clairaudience, where Kazuya can hear sounds and audio without the use of his ears, while this tends to be used to be able to hear people speak when he is not there it makes him excellent at gathering information with these two aspects of ESP alone.
His lesser used aspects of Extrasensory Perception is his ability to taste and smell aromas, scents or have tastes without the use of his physical nose or mouth, something that should also be noted is the fact that ESP can occur in the future, past or present. This makes everything quite confusing although Kazuya can determine when it is in the present he has a harder time with distinguishing the past and future. Kazuya's ability with ESP to the level in which he can use all of his five senses in this sixth sense makes her capable of a form of Astral Projection, he does this by entering a state of meditation to project his consciousness in the form of an ethereal being, in essence he is a ghost and cannot be detected by any form of sensor except another psychic, during this state he can pass through solid matter such as obstacles because he has no physical mass in this form, he is ethereal and as such he can travel to any place she desires although he can still be trapped and attacked by psychics who are aware of his presence. This is usually used for spying and information gathering, he can also achieve a feat of pseudo-possession to use a person's body although this can only be used on those who are NPCs.
Through the use of ESP Kazuya naturally has a strange level of accelerated learning, this is due to his ability to remember anything and everything that he encounters which means that he can easily learn and retain information, his use of ESP makes him almost impossible to best in knowledge, by far one of her most fearful aspects of this ability is the ability of Psychometry, a simple yet incredibly dangerous skill his ability bestows him. It works by tactile contact and once established he can learn a lot about someone, this is usually events which relate to them in a way. Psychometry tends to let him easily learn someone's history and backstory to varying degrees although dependent on the person in general things can change ie. while he might be able to immediately understand one person's life history and know it other people might be much harder such as him only getting glimpses or through memories over time. This ability might also require a longer touch and contact to be remained for much longer than others, the way to understand Psychometry is that every time Kazuya touches someone or something and he seeks out things related to it he can instantly learn a single paragraph of a person's history from their application, this isn't chronological but he instead learns more key points about them before background details. It can even allow him to learn about release forms and hidden powers as well as persona.
The final aspect of this ability is what people can describe as the sensing of aura, Kazuya is able to perceive an aura which surrounds people, it is completely intangible and cannot be interacted with, it cannot be touched or used either, it is also only perceivable to those with a much higher than average awareness than normal, an aura is incredibly useful for understanding people. Those who can sense it are able to determine emotions and alignments of people, an aura cannot be hidden by the person in general which makes it a surefire way to determine how people feel and what their alignment is like. As with all of his aspects in ESP Kazuya can activate and deactivate it at will.
