I. Basic Information» Name:
[Hiyashi Wakasuchi]» Alias: » Age:
Human Age: 18, Shinigami Age: 100» Gender:
[Gotei 13]» Appearance Written:
Hiyashi's hair is brown. He takes great care to make sure that it is presented adequately, but without seeming too showy about it. It's often left uncut, but he's been known to spend hours simply combing his hair. He has yellow eyes, which are often baggy with sleep circles.
His movements are positively mundane, from his sword swings to his attempts to rush to wherever he's going. He moves without fanfare, yet without a sense of fatige or concern as well; he simply walks along, hardly seeming to pay attention to much of anything while still managing to be faintly aware of going-ons around him. He seems to lack some of the hard-fought discipline most shinigami have, and it shows in his voice. He speaks in a lilting, careful tone that rarely if ever goes above a whisper; even when frustrated, he greets others with an almost singsong welcome, and he is positively incapable of being blunt or rude. He's prone to having pensive expressions far more often than he smiles, as if he's already wondering about some new problem to be tackled even when he's enjoying a cup of tea or just soaking in hot water. He in fact seems to have a chronic issue just appearing happy. He's polite, reasonable, and always gives off a clear air of anxiety or worry.» Appearance:
II. Personality» Personality:
Optimistic: Hiyashi is a young man confident that the world will, at the very least, end up zero sum. Every bad moment guarantees another good one in the future, and if a person experiences a rash of good days, there's no guarantee they'll have to pay for it all at once. He's usually quite content with how life treats him, and he seems simply to be happy to be given a chance.
Supportive: He will almost always go out of his way to help people he comes across, whether it's tutoring them in proper swordplay or just listening to their problems. Blessed by so much potential and luck, Hiyashi's taken highly to giving back, and helping those around him to reach their fullest potential.
Sharp-minded: He is very quick to notice when things are odd, whether it's a friend who's acting differently or something that's been moved when he wasn't looking. One of Hiyashi's greatest strengths is his attention to detail; when he focuses on something, there's no way it can escape his attention.
Accepting: Hiyashi is more than content with his lot in life, prepared to take whatever punishments come his way. He seems particularly skilled at putting up both with physical violence and outbursts of rage or jealousy. Harsh words and bone-cracking blows roll off of him with equal ease.
Resourceful: Hiyashi is damn good at finding novel answers to questions, and is able to turn what appears to be a relatively useless advantage into a serious asset. Whether it's simply by keeping a little distance between himself and an enemy, or by making the fullest use of terrain, Hiyashi seems to have no trouble turning things to his advantage in short order.
Humble: Hiyashi is never one to seek praise, or even allow it to be given. He'll often reach a state of near panic if he starts to suspect he's about to be the center of attention, doing everything possible to deflect attention or convince people that someone or something else is better-suited as an explanation, rather than his ingrained skills.
Obsessive: Most people who know him well at all realize that with his enormous attention to detail comes a flaw as well; He can spend hours doing the same thing, simply pouring over a piece of paper or a person's past. He goes much further than anyone else, often to the point of actually wasting time. Hiyashi never rushes to do anything, and seems much happier about doing one task absolutely right than doing everything to the best of his ability.
Demanding: One of the worst things in the world is a person who doesn't know what to expect from everyone around him. While hiyashi is quite happy to tutor others and to give them advice, it's often coupled with an implicit understanding that said person perseveres, no matter how hard. Many a recruit has found themselves asking Hiyashi for relatively simple advice and instead gotten a lecture about how much more they should be capable of. He seems to do it without any ill will, or without even realizing it much of the time.
Introverted: Hiyashi has become withdrawn, frequently concerned that seeming too attached to someone else will, again, cause grief in other people's lives. He tends to keep his relationships as professional as possible, and will rarely engage in small talk. He's quite happy to discuss work, school, or anything similar...but there just doesn't seem to be much room in Hiyashi's head for gossip or current events.
Forgetful: So obsessed with pleasing and helping others, Hiyashi frequently neglects his own needs. He's been known to skip meals, too busy cooking for others to cook for himself. He's almost always seen either exhausted, half-starved, or so buried in work he's about to unravel. He has become convinced the only way he can be accepted is to take the stress and hardship out of others' lives, but this means that his life is doubly hard.
Unmotivated: Hiyashi seems to lack most if not all of the traditional motivators for his behavior. He'll endure sharp-tongued remarks and physical punishment with equal ease, and go right about his business. Many times it's an off-handed remark, spoken with no malice at all that'll truly make him care about what's going on.
III. History» History:
Hiyashi was born to a family of relatively underprivileged, unexceptional pluses. Uneducated and poor, they spent much of their time simply scraping along. Even from a young age, Hiyashi was expected to contribute, and bring home whatever money he could pick up, to provide for his parents and his family; in reality, most of the money went towards alcohol for his mother and father. However, among his family only Hiyashi put much thought into why they needed to eat. Being dead, things like breathing were considered more of an entertainment than a necessity. Hiyashi himself theorized that even as spirits, they needed some sort of energy to keep themselves alive, much like humans needed energy to survive. However, the energy was used not to support their body, but their souls. Even as a child, Hiyashi was deathly afraid of his parents, and their wrath. He would work and struggle and do everything he could to keep them happy, and as a result was labelled by his brothers as a "suck-up." This led to both physical and emotional abuse, which his parents did little to stop. He was beaten, yelled at, blamed for his brothers' mistakes, and treated horribly for making the rest of his siblings look bad.
When Hiyashi turned 50, he finally decided what he wanted to do with his life; he confronted his parents, telling them he was going to become a shinigami. Things quickly turned violent as they accused him of abandoning the family, of getting a swelled head. He lost his parents' favor as quickly as he gained it, and spent much of his time sneaking out to find out more about the shinigami. Each day when he returned, he'd meet worse and worse punishments. His parents would claim any reason at all, but Hiyashi knew the truth; they were afraid, almost offended that he was trying to outdo them. They tried their best to break his will, to keep him close, but when he turned 60 he finally moved out, and into the academy. He had high hopes, and was prepared to work his fingers to the bone to succeed. Unfortunately, life wasn't that simple.
In his first year, Hiyashi was by far the brightest student. He would always arrive first to the class, making sure to be as polite and sociable as possible. Many of the other students would make token attempts at conversation, before quickly drifting off. It showed before long, as most of the students would barely scrape by on the exams, while Hiyashi was always first. Quickly, the resentment set in again. The students would begin to poke and prod Hiyashi, always demanding that he make up for making them all look so bad. Still hoping that he could leave his old life behind, Hiyashi would always agree; this typically ended with some crime being committed, and Hiyashi being blamed.

IX. Role Play Sample» Roleplay Sample:
[Hiyashi isn't usually the type of person to be sitting around doing nothing all day. Perhaps it was because of the lack of things to do while in the sereitei, going to different districts was pleasing at first but after awhile he became rather bored.
"Well i'm not going to get stronger by just sitting all day, better go to the training grounds" he said while stretching his arms.
As he arrived at the training grounds he noticed alot of shinigami training, most consisted of various height and body types and he noticed some others practicing kidou. Most of them were brand new academy students while others were more experienced shinigami hoping to improve their skills. All of these people were making hiyashi feel weak in comparison to others,he felt like even a low ranking academy student could beat him.
But he put the thought into the back of his mind, not wanting it to distract him.What mattered was finding a nice area and a good sparring partner, "Now where's a nice quiet training area?" He wondered as he looked around the training grounds.
As he went into the building he decided to sit down and put his zanpaktou in his lap, urgently waiting for someone to train with him "Well i guess i should wait for someone to join me....if anyone comes that is" he said to himself]
