Enter The Shinigami
I. Basic Information» Name:
Senka Yoten» Alias:
Sen-chan, Kitsune-chan or Foxy» Age:
Genetically Female, being born and conceived as a girl she prefers to be referred as such although her kitsune heritage has given her the ability to shapeshift and alter aspects of her appearance. » Association:
Gotei Reformed - Kido Corps, previously a member of Squad 10 before being moved into the Kido Corps and staying with them until the reformation.» Appearance (Shifter):
To say that Senka has a set form is quite ridiculous. This is partly due to the fact that she exists in a very loose form where she is able to manipulate it at will to suit her desires. Of course this means that she can shapeshift in a variety of forms; animals mainly and humanoid appearances. » Appearance (True):
In her true form Senka is a tall and rather attractive woman. Her body sports an hour glass frame.
II. Personality» Quiet:
Being someone who prefers to stay with her thoughts Senka tends to be a very quiet person when alone and around people, she doesn't speak that much unless spoken too or she needs to but this is simply a usual occurrence to her. It doesn't mean she is always quiet or always not talking. She is still quite sociable and able to talk very easily but most of the time she likes to let people talk and just listen in.» Mischievous Innocence: » Playful:
Being quite the playful girl she loves games and having fun, it is something she inherited from her mother and as such she comes off as quite the relaxed woman who rarely takes things seriously and is often able to annoy people because of this trait. She is always pursuing fun and enjoyment, even in the middle of a battle she'll still treat it like a game and only really get serious if she feels her life is threatened. » Vengeful:
Senka is known to hold a grude» Easily Bored: » Thrill Seeker:
III. History» Birth:
Senka was born to her parents on the outskirts of the Rukongai, her father was a rogue shinigami who had fled to the very outskirts of the Kusajishi District where he hid among the populace and his position kept secret by the people for his assistance in defending them from Hollows since the Gotei rarely patrolled the area. While he was nice Kazugami was also feared by the local criminals and so he naturally brought a bit of order to the district.
Senka's mother was a fox spirit, a demon who sought out the Soul Society out of curiosity and in search of fun and one evening she playfully attacked the district and caused havoc although when she was attacked by Kazugami she was forced to flee when the man released his shikai and she only released four out of six of her tails. This encounter made her curious of him, and after she had recovered she began to take the form of a young woman and got close to him, the more she began to fall for him.
A few weeks after infiltrating the district and trying to make Kazugami notice her she went to him where he lived in a small cavern where he hid. Curious as to how she found him Kazugami agreed to spend a single day with her if she showed him how she found him which involved her kitsune powers. This of course made Saori quite nervous about revealing it but she was infatuated and upon taking her true form she fell to her knees and begged him not to kill her and that she loved him.
Her display made Kazugami realise that she was the demon that attacked the Rukongai but he found himself unable to kill or even harm her despite the destruction she caused to people and the area. Instead when she reverted to her human form and lay in a mess she knelt down and gently kissed her and that was the night when the two decided that they'd stay together forever and Senka was conceived that night.
From that day on the two of them lived happily and when Senka was finally born the two found it to be the most happiest day of their life although their mixed blood caused Senka to possess fox ears and a tail, not that either of them cared but they both knew she'd be discriminated and targeted for her strange appearance and people would question her strange features which made Kazugami worry about his daughter's future.
Her childhood was nice, she was raised in the little cave and spent her days getting to go outside with her mother and father and learning how to fight when she was quite young. Her fox ears gave her much more acute at hearing sight which allowed her to move around at night and she quickly found it quite a benefit while training with her father and mother, her father taught her skills in Hakuda and Hoho, instantly recognising as she grew that she'd be better suited for hand-to-hand combat and moving around quickly. It was her mother that was able to make the link of her magical prowess from her own mystical heritage.
IV. Equipment» Gigai:
These are temporary bodies that Shinigami use in The World of The Living, for the most part at least. They were crafted by the likes of those within the Shinigami Research and Development Institute. As of the past four hundred years, however, this technology has advanced. There are many types of different variants of Giga in the 25th century. Of course there is are the standard is generally one meant to easily transport Shinigami into the realm of the living within powerless bodies which resemble that of a human. However, thanks to groundbreaking research, there is currently a development meant to expand and encompass this to the incredible amounts of new races which had sprang up over the past four hundred years. So, in other words, Gigai which take the shape of other races are slowly becoming a reality. On top of that, some have even chosen to infuse their Gigai into their body so they can easily shift from their artificial body to that like of their Shinigami; much like in the case of Senna and Shadin Yuudeshi. » Kikanshinki:
Sometimes known as Account-Replacing Spirit Device, this tool was originally used by Shinigami on humans who have seen Shinigami or Hollows many years ago. However, with supernatural sighting become increasingly common on Earth, they soon switched their priorities around with this device. As of the 25th Century, the Kikanshinki is now a small device which can generate large plumes of smoke. It can be attached to any sort of equipment or clothing which a Shinigami has on them. After taking the appropriate measures to prevent themselves from being affected by this smoke, a user in question can enhance this smoke with their spiritual energy in order to cover a large area of land. If this smoke is inhaled by the target, then they may lose conscious and wake up later with a new memory. This can be useful against unruly opponents or if they need to keep their presence and information top secret during a mission.
V. Racial Techniques/Abilities/Skills» 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. » 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.» Gokon Tekkō V2:
This is a device which forcibly removes the Soul from the body. In the early stages of this gadget, it was originally taken in the form of a gauntlet. Though, with the advancements in the past four hundred years, it can now be infused into a willing Shinigami participant's hand and can be mentally summoned in the form of a red glow across their hand. Once this brilliant light is flourished across a Shinigami's hand, they are then able to attempt to remove a soul from a target's body. Rather it be an Arrancar, a Ziamichi or even a Vizard in some instances. This isn't absolute in nature, as depending on the subject in question, it may or may not be effective. Such as if they were able to formulate some sort of internal barrier before they had a chance to enact this ability, or if they simply moved out of the way before they could get injured by it. And, varying by how strong the target is, they may be even able to halve or null the damage with their spiritual energy alone as well. » Jigokuchō:
Otherwise known as Hell Butterflies, The Jigokucho serve a large multitude of purposes. When once is summoned by a Shinigami, they'll appear completely black, expect for a small outline of maroon along their lower wings. They are utilized in order to guide the Shinigami through various portal's which are made possible in the 25th century if they have not a good idea of the general area they are travelling to. Though, more commonly, they are used to guide the Shinigami inside the paths of a Senkaimon when travelling between the Soul Society and other realms; saving them the inconvenience of generally having to resort other methods of interdimensional travel or being forced to pass through the Dangai. Hell Butterflies are also used in order to swiftly and almost instantly warp important messages to loved ones, allies and sometimes even foes as a warning. And, for the most part, these creatures are often taken care of by new and inexperienced member in the Seireitei. Lastly, much like Shinigami themselves, Jigokuchō are only visible to spiritually aware beings.» 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.
VI. Sealed Powers » Zanpakutô Name:
Bijū [尾獣, Tailed Beasts]» Zanpakutô Appearance:
In it's sealed state Bijū takes the form of two tekkō which Senka wears underneath white bandages. While both are a dull grey in colour they have subtle differences which make them somewhat unique. The one she wears on her right hand bears the kanji for Light (光) and has strange arcane looking lines over it's form with the kanji surrounded by what appears to be a sun symbol.
The one on her left hand has the kanji for Darkness (闇) and has similar arcane lines however people comment that the lines are much more curved unlike the right one which has much sharper lines with pointed corners. The kanji of the left is surrounded by a crescent moon.» Sealed Zanpakutô Power: Fox-Fire:
Known as Fox-Fire it is the mystical blue flames that she inherited from her mother. It is a powerful blue fire but different in many aspects from normal fire the first thing that makes it unique is the fact it is hotter than normal fire. The fire that Senka can produce is quite hot being around 4,990 °C (9,000 °F) which is the temperature of the hottest flame that can be created artificially with chemistry so while it is hotter than any natural
flame it can be rivaled by empowered fire which is either spiritually or chemically created.
Fox-Fire is also known for it's mystical properties, this means that it is entirely possible for Senka to change it's application and alter what it does. An example of this is that it is entirely possible for her to create fox-fire which only affects certain races by altering it to only burn beings of a certain spiritual composition or even using it to empower other individuals by using it as a medium for transferring her energy.
If one looks deeper into what it can do then people soon find that her ability can be altered with certain kido spells, to better define it if Senka used a spell like Sai and infused it with her fox-fire then it is possible for it to completely surround someone and bind them like the spell would do. Offensively she could also use a spell such as Tsuzuri Raiden and her flames could have a electrifying touch to them. However while it is possible to do depending on the spell and the level of it it can be quite difficult for her to infuse anything over thirty into her mystical flames and anything over forty is simply impossible for her although the lower levels -20 are very easy to infuse into her flames.

IX. Role Play Sample» Roleplay Sample:
In the light of the light from the moon stood the lone figure of the young woman, the silhouette of her form would make her appear like a demon. Her nine tails writhing around her while her head was raised as she took in the scents the wind carried, every so often her ears twitched from a distant sound.
