II. Personality» Personality:Clumsy:
Though she’s known for her skills in battle, she’s also known to be quite the klutz when she’s not focused. Every now and then she can be found tripping over her own feet and breaking many things, mainly glass and expensive vases.Carefree:
Chidori seems to not care about anything. Most of the times, she seems as if she has lost all weight of responsibility. For instance, she can be found chasing a butterfly and that could last up to a few hours. Due to this personality trait, she rarely ever is a victim to any sort of stress. But also due to this, she can never be given a long term assignment as she is bound to just drop it to do something more immediate.Easy to Please:
Though she does get mad often, those short burst of anger are normally always pleased. Chidori can be pleased by almost anything, whether it be material or sexual she’s still up to receive anything that can take her mind off of whatever she’s angry about.Selective Determination:
When and only when Chidori truly cares about something, there's a slight
chance she'll actually work towards it over a long period of time. Most of the ties she won't give her goals a second thought because she has so many of them, but when it comes down to that one goal, you better believe she'll accomplish it.Short-Tempered:
The wrathful side of Chidori. She's in short an emotional roller coaster, with her going super fast and unexpectedly changing moods. The slightest of things will tick her off, and she solves most of these problems with her fists. So far her way of solving things has been working for her. When she gets angry she also can't control herself, and she often lashes out at whatever is making her angry.Sarcastic:
Something she picks up when she's pissed. She tends to mock people with her blatant sarcasm. It's also her method of humor, for whenever she's in the mood to crack the occasional joke.
III. History» History:
A little over 200 years ago, a daughter was born to the head of the Shihoin clan, Yūshirō Shihōin. This baby was said to be as hot a fire when she came out of the womb, giving the mother first degree burns. She was named Chidori, or A Thousand Birds for the fact that she had eyes of her mother whom of which was a bird enthusiast. Her name was also her mother's idea. Chidori was also Yūshirō's first child, making her the next head of the Shihoin clan after her father dies or gives up his position.
Growing up Chidori was treated like royalty by her parents. She was assigned retainers from the families that had served under the Shihoin family, she was given the highest of educations, and on top of that she was personally trained by her father in the art of stealth and combat. Most people would kill for this type of life, but it just wasn't for her. Chidori wanted to be like other kids, she had no idea what others acted like because she never really met them, but she wanted something different. Her parents had a few other children besides her, and they didn't get nearly the amount of special treatment that she got. So when she was 15, or 100, she ran away from home.
This didn't really alarm her father. He expected her to be just fine, he did teach her what he knew after all. Though at the time he was dealing with something a bit more serious. Chidori's mother was diagnosed with a deadly disease at a few years ago. It was said that Squad 4 was working on a cure for this disease at the time, but day by day she just kept getting worse. Eventually she was bedridden and died. Her death had happened the year Chidori was still away, more specifically the same day she came back.
Chidori wasn't just having fun during her time away though. By this time she had acquired her Zanpakutō and she had seen those around her activate their shikai. Though when she started to learn how to get her own, she had learned that it was actually quite difficult. Just reading that made her want to gain this shikai even more. So for the year that she was away, she trained. More than when she trained with her father, more than when she would train with her aunt. She put her all into getting this shikai and her result? Nothing. She wasn't even the a tiny bit closer to this shikai thing, or so she thought. Though she didn't gain this shikai, she did get to go to her inner world and meet her Zanpakutō. It's name just didn't reach her. She didn't give up, but decided that it would be time for her to go back home.
And what she returned to wasn't pleasant. Not only was her mother dead, but she was a hollow now too. Later on Chidori would find out that her mother was another failed Vizard experiment, just that the virus took a long time to actually get to her. Chidori came back to her mother's hollow going on a rampage, until it put it's attention on Chidori. Chidori didn't know what to do: either kill her mother or be killed herself. She picked the former and started to fight, but it quickly turned wrong as the hollow had badly injured her. As she was slowly slipping in and out of consciousness, she was also slowly entering her inner world. Her Zanpakutō only said one word: Yoru. She then lost consciousness.
She woke up to the sight of her father. He told her that she had passed. At first she was confused until he had begun to elaborate: though her mother's death was unplanned, it was Chidori's test of courage. Not only was she brave enough to face against her mother, she had also unlocked her Shikai in the process. Yūshirō said that she was now ready, and that he would let her go anywhere she wanted wherever she wanted, and do what she wanted and have his full approval. But she didn't want to leave him, fearing that he would end up like her mother did. So thus she stayed and joined the Gotei 13, joining squad 2.
In 2418, Chidori had officially gone AWOL from both her family and the Gotei. She never really gave either a party a reason for her disappearance, though for herself she was having somewhat of a crisis. For the first time in her life she didn't know what direction she had wanted to go in. She had no drive to move up the ranks of the Gotei, she had no goal she wanted to strive towards, and thus she had no reason to pursue strength. In her eyes, she was a waste of space to the world and she wasn't needed. Luckily, she didn't entertain the thoughts of suicide but did decide she needed to take a step away from civilization. She left to Brazil before moving the the nation of Vastime, hoping to get away from life's troubles and rot away slowly.

V. Racial Techniques/Abilities/Skills» Racial Abilities:Fukanzen Shunko:
Also known as the Imperfect Shunko, was a skill taught to her by her father when she was young. It’s nowhere near the complete Shunko and she’s nowhere close to mastering it, let alone at the level her aunt was. Shunko is where the user combines both Kido along with Hakuda to strengthen natural fighting powers and can create their own hybrid attacks. In Chidori’s case, she’s only able to use it to increase her physical power ever so slightly. When activated, her Fukanzen Shunko looks to be a gray flame-like arua that is covering her and can spread around her.Taekkyon:
Chidori's go to martial art.Taekkyeon is characterized by fluid, dynamic footwork called "pum balgi" or Stepping-on-Triangles. Taekkyeon contains many leg and whole-body techniques with the occasional use of the arm. Although taekkyeon primarily utilizes kicking, punching, and arm strikes thrown from a mobile stance and does not provide a framework for ground fighting. The way Chidori uses it is to become very mobile while in combat and still being able to utilize her weapons. With using flips and such to keep herself in the air for a certain amount of time and using her Zanpakutō to attack the enemy's legs.Fire & Burn Reaitsu:
Chidori harbors within her an elemental reiatsu. Her element is that of fire, hot to the touch and very destructive. Chidori's flames can be told apart from other flames though, as they are a black instead of the traditional red and orange. This Reiatsu is more powerful than Fire & Heat, as those who feel the flame don't necessarily feel the warmth of the fire but are just burned instead.
VI. Sealed Powers » Zanpakutô Name:
Yoru» Zanpakutô Appearance:
» Inner World :
Chidori’s inner world is quite interesting. When she’s in her inner world, the ground seems to be that of water. It’s not that deep,as she is able to walk on the water with ease. In the sky is the moon, but it’s different than the normal moon. This moon is about three times bigger than the normal moon and is a crimson red. Accompanying the moon are small white dots in the sky. They are not stars, as when one were to get a closer look they would be able to see that they are actually faces of those she has killed. The faces are meant to represent how she vows to remember every life she has taken. Most of these faces don’t speak, unless Chidori is under emotional stress, which even then only the faces of those she was close to will speak. Her world also seems to go on for an eternity, with the moon always being in the same place and the floor going on endlessly. » Zanpakutō Spirit Appearance :
VII. Shikai» Shikai Release Phrase:
Become what they fear, Yoru.» Shikai Appearance:
When activated, Chidori's shikai is somewhat unique. Her one blade becomes two black kamas connected at the end by an infinite black chain. This is still technicality a single Zanpakutō as the chain is connecting them. Both of the kamas are 3 feet in length and the blades are 18 inches long.» Shikai Abilities:Defiant Flames:
Chidori's signature flames. While in her shikai Chidori is able to fully control her reiatsu and use it in various techniques. These flames are called Defiant as even Chidori can be burned by these flames, which is why she tends to not use her flames often. Her flames cannot be doused by water, and whatever they touch will ultimately be burned with no ash left behind. Combust:
A very simple technique. Chidori engulfs the chains of her shikai within the black flames. Though Chidori cannot touch the chains once this is activated, she can turn the fire on and off at will, with her being able to choose which parts of the chains are in the fire. This fire also does not spread to other objects.
