I. Basic Information» Name:
Tenbin Okinaki» Alias:
Gotei United, First Division» Appearance Written:• Body Type:
Tenbin Okinaki could be described as husky for though he does not have the toned outline of a more athletic build he is neither overly overweight. True he has "padding" but he also has muscle under it. Tenbin stands at five feet, ten inches tall and weighs in at around two-hundred and fifty pounds. Tenbin's body is deceptive at its best, sure he exercises in order to keep in fighting form though if he put more effort into it surely he could shed his extra weight and take on a more athletic form. • Eyes and Hair:
Tenbin Okinaki has rather plain features from his Japanese heritage from his hair coloring and his eyes. Not really one for style but functionality, Tenbin's dark black hair is kept buzzed short. Keeping his hair definitely out of his face as well as keeping it short enough not to be truly pulled or grasped in a fight. His stash and short beard are kept trimmed up, more out of habit from when he was alive. Tenbin has common brown eyes that show a very caring side to his and others well being. • Attire:
He is commonly seen more in his standard Shinigami garb then anything else. Like most Shinigami however he has added his own personal touches to his uniform, completely removing the black outer sleeves of his uniform while tailoring the white sleeves left exposed to be better fitted. Done even more so with wraps starting half way up forearms to finish wrapping around his hands and knuckles. A twenty inch necklace of half inch purple prayer beads hangs around his neck. His Zanpukto tucked into the white sash on his left side. Tenbin Okinaki's more casual attire still takes on a more traditional approach with cotton Samue and sandals. During these times his Zanpukto is wrapped in a brown cotton cloth.• Reiatsu Color:
Tenbin Okinaki's reiatsu is a light shade of blue. Unlike others within the eleventh division he seems to fight with more control then passion. Not letting his emotions control him in combat he focuses more on technique and trying to discover flaws or weaknesses in those around him. » Appearance Image:

III. History» History:
Okinaki, Tenbin was born in Japan, more specifically Uji located in the Kyoto prefecture. Growing up his life was not normal specially with the outside influence within the world. From his early teen years he could peer past the realm to the spiritual world around him. Spirits of humans trapped by chains to area's of there death, Tenbin would take it upon himself to make them comfortable and as he reached adult hood would embark on becoming a monk. Tenbin made it his duty to keep the traditions of the local shrine alive and in working order as he went about his life. Tending to, what he would later learn to be, pluses, placing flowers, conversing, and trying to tend to their needs as best as he can. Life for him would be as normal as it could be and those that knew him and find peace and even joy talking to him.
Reaching his later twenties he would first spot a Shinigami as it performed its duties sending off a plus that he was about to place flowers by. His memory of his meeting with the shinigami would be erased from his memory afterwards, though something would always bug him about the "day" he decided to take a trip to Tokyo that didn't really happen. After weeks and months he would forget the incident completely, that is until his death years later. That day came in his early thirties. That day he left the shrine in order to pick up groceries to take back with him. On the return trip he was surprised when a young man ran into him with a knife. Several times the knife drove into him before his neck purse would be taken from him as his groceries fell out of his arms and he would collapse in sight of the shrine, though blocks away.
Becoming a plus Tenbin would watch as the years rolled by and the shrine that he took care of seem to fall apart. It pained him as he felt abandoned and time and time he would struggle against his soul chain to try to reach the shrine. That tugging would then be his end as it tore at him and ended up turning him into a hollow.
The year he spent as a hollow was indeed a dark one for he had truly become a monster. his body heavily armored and pocketed with spikes. Tenbin's hollow form feasted on rage provoking those that could sense him into attacking his hardened being, his spiritual energy causing the energy put into attacking him to rebound on his attackers. It was devastating to the lower leveled spiritually aware trapped by the rage inducing pheromones he emitted, lowering their own attacking ability to end up being torn apart bashing against the hollows defenses. It was through the combined forces of Kido users and that of a strong blade wielder to take him out purifying his spirit and sending it onto Tenbin's next journey of life.
A plus once again on Tenbin would find peace in the soul society. He would set up a shop of his own. Preparing fried rice and meats it was a comfortable living but deep inside something would feel as though it was missing. The years would roll on and he would continue with his everyday life occasionally soul reapers would come and eat at his shop, Tenbin being one of the few within the Rukongai capable of handling the spiritual presence of those from the Seireitei without succumbing to the sickness that tended to come to those that became overwhelmed by their presence. It was while serving a party of a few soul reapers that one of them would inquire why Tenbin hadn't tried attending the Shino academy yet. Not really knowing why himself, Tenbin would claim that he would give it a shot.
It would take some time to put in the paperwork but soon enough he would be accepted. Attending the school Tenbin Okinaki would find that he had better luck with kido then use of the asachi blade given to him though in training he found that the lines of kido spoken left him open and so he pushed those studies away in order to better prefect his use of a blade. Focusing his training on Zanjutsu and hoho he would push back what would have been his best subject in kido. Coming out of the academy he would be slotted to become part of the combat squad.
Becoming part of the unranked masses Tenbin would keep his head down for the most part, tending to his duties. Sparing, cooking, and cleaning took up most his days within the Seireitei as he watched the changes around him as the gotei 13 condensed down and he found himself in the command squad. Paperwork was a new thing to get to use to on top of his old duties. Still his training took president after all his Zanpakuto had yet to awaken to him. The Asachi blade was stubborn in a way to become unlocked like other zanpakutos and to compensate Tenbin would use his skill in kido to compensate for it for missions. Learning to channel spiritual energy into the blade in order to take on stronger opponents, though it wasn't always enough.

IX. Role Play Sample» Roleplay Sample:
[A previous post for a different character from a different bleach site.]
Hoshua Hoo had not even taken his seat before he watched one of the lovely female attendance enter the room as he snapped his gum mostly minding himself. He was after all a wild card as no one was able to tell how vast his spiritual pressure was, even when he let it loose and showed its true color. Clear like burning methanol, making it invisible even when released, but right now it was sealed and held under control. It was what set him different than most other Shiganami but he rather enjoyed it as he gave a small nod to the tenth division second seat. In moments the room went from one of restlessness of people getting ready for the meeting to begin something that Hoshua thought to be a bore, to one of chaos.
His left hand yanking his Zanapakuto and its sheath out of his belt his movements and reaction time on par with the female of the fourth division if not faster due to his left hand having been at the ready. His right hand unsheathing Raionroa from itself as he watch the fellow lieutenant Incant her spell and as it finished he could already tell that it was not going to hold. His body was still moving forward getting himself in between the soon to shatter defensive seal his body already twisting clockwise as he aimed his kick across the females waistline that could send her through the window at the far side of the room the only exit out of this soon to be trap, not to cause damage but to deliver a powerful shove. Raionroa and its sheath already released into Shikai form as Dual Wakizashi, the guards taking the shape of a Lions heads, their mouths open in a roar with the blade protruding from it. Four small holes, two on each side near the tip of the blade, dot the blades themselves though they keep their structural integrity. Their blade length 54 cm as their handles retains the ability to be held in one or two hands. The one that had been it's sheath, in his left hand held in a reverse grip while the second was held traditionally.
Still he chewed his bubble gum as he started to hear the cry of his own Zanapakuto that was created by the holes in the blades being swung as those around feel the effects of the sound disrupting their inner ears in this manner, causing the targets pain(this would be initial as the sound hit the targets ear drums), total loss of their sense of balance(initial as the ears are key organs in maintaining balance), nausea induced vomiting (caused by the continuous abuse of the ability to balance ones self), or even worst case scenario a knock out from the pain of a busted ear drum(not even going to say because every ones pain thresh hold is different, but on the 6th post of continuous assault on the ears the inner ear may give out). Thus even a blocked or dodged blow of the blade itself can end up a hit. The sound is most effective between 0-5 meters in its Shikai form though its max range is 10 meters. These effects would be nullified by Hoshua chewing his own gum but for those who did not have the tasty treat, popping one's own ears though out the fight would suffice. Though the only reason Hoshua had released his Shikai was to save the forth division second seat and now it would be time to save himself as he continued the spin rotating ever faster as he called out the name of his technique," The Roaring Lions Barrier Wall!"
The constant spin of this technique caused the blades to continuously whine as he focused his Reiatsu to form the intense vibrations of molecules that the blades cause while in a constant spin like a top. Molding the sound waves, around one's body, A.K.A the vibrating molecules with his Reiatsu he is able to condense it around him and form a thick and dense sound wall to protect him in a dome of unmoving, outside their constant path, air molecules. The technique was a type of ultimate defense as the invisible walls would not give way no matter what as they the molecules of the air would be forced into an absolute zero state. The molecules unmoving even to the ice based attack as it washed over him pushing himself and the "force field" around him back slightly before encasing the fifth division Lieutenant in a three meter dome, an air pocket with Hoshua Hoo still spinning like a gyro making sure to not release it until the Ice had settled, hoping that the other Lieutenants had escaped.
