» Name: Lorin Homra
» Age: 17
» Gender: Male
» Affiliation/Rank: --

It's hard to tell whether or not Lorin is mature at times as he likes to goof off. This is not to mention his words can sound puerile. He likes to see maturity as something that is of opportunity and not so much something that should be set into stone with a person's personality. The idea of this can irk him to fumes and set a rather sour taste in his mouth for people that think this way. It's not hard for him to look passed this minor flaw, however.
So when things are serious he straightens out for the most part, he can be light with his humor even in these situations, however. It's all come and go and rather unpredictable to say the least. To say someone is set in one determined path with something like this would be inhumane, or so Lorin believes.
Yearning to be the best he can be at all times with nearly everything he does, Lorin hates the feeling of being looked down on and being thought of as "lesser." Disappointing those that rely on him is something that can really break into him and dig deep at him. If he were to fail someone he would likely carry the weight with him for quite sometime and to hear the words that he did so from that very same person would crumble him.
Nonetheless, Lorin tends to push his limits quite often and likes to set goals, mentally. He'll push himself to mental and physical exhaustion, and would likely have to be told when to stop depending on the circumstances.
One of the most impressive things about Lorin are his blade-like comebacks. His ability to match wits for wits with another person is rather impressive. Being called everything under the son he is quick to sharpen his tongue and match repertoire from others.
Though this isn't the main station to his sharpness, he's quick on his feet to be intuitive and act out of instinct. His odd life experiences up to this point has given him some sort of different take on situations. He likes to look at things from the outside, or from another, perspective rather than just his own. Making him a more understanding person as well.
Saying that you would know someone's next move because of the repetition of their actions based on passed experiences isn't something can be applied to Lorin. Not in most cases outside of things like what he might say to something. Only so much can be said, after all. However, when it comes to what decision he is going to make on a matter, there is no telling. Acting off instinct, or his gut, has led him to make the choices he feels is right in the very moment. He knows that he is the barer of the outcome, yet he still chooses for his decision making to be as such.
In a way you can say he's rather mutable. While he might have his opinion on something at one point, he's likely to be swayed to a brighter or darker opinion on something based on what his experience with the subject at matter may be.
Lorin doesn't need much, he honestly lives out of a bag that carries little to nothing in it besides items he might need for battle. Even then, he doesn't carry this all the time. He can go a long period of time without much of anything, including food. He's just become acclimated to situations such as that.
» History Born in Suburbs of central Florida within the United States Lorin and his family lived a slightly hard life. With his father having no real skill, or education he struggled to find a job that didn't have to do with mopping the floors at the local Malls. However, it did pay the bills that they had, but left little room for Lorin to have things that he would need as a infant and child. His mother on the other hand had a bachelor's degree in Health and Nutrition, which wasn't very useful as nobody exactly wanted to be told what to eat and what not to eat when it came to Florida.
It had always been the families dream to move to California where all the stars live and for his mother, Margret, to be a diet planner for big hit celebrities. However, that wouldn't happen as she had Lorin at the age of 20 which was two years before she graduated from college. Though, it just goes to show how much willpower and focus Margret had for finishing up school in order to provide for her child.
As Lorin progressed to the age of four, Margret had decided that she would go somewhere that she could make a difference and put her degree to use. So, she started filling out applications to various places around the world until she finally received a call back from a dietary clinic in Karakura Town, Japan. Excited, Margret immediately began packing and got on the next flight with young Lorin leaving his father in the dust with no sign of where they went.
As the years went by Lorin attended school and always stayed on top of his studies. However, being so interested in school always seems to have it's affects on the kids around you. Therefore, he was subject to being bullied in school, for being a "nerd" when he really isn't one he's just dedicated to have a better life for himself and for being a soulless ginger. As time went on he learned that people would always be there to bring you down, and all he could do was prove them wrong and be more successful than they would be.
During Lorin's Freshman year of High school, Lorin was sent abroad to study in Ireland. Here, he encountered some rather odd individuals that could be described none other than demons. One thing led to another and before he knew it there was several of them there. The first he was to meet was Matthew Hinote, a rather rash Demon that seemed to rub everyone the wrong way. The next was Neoveta, a demon that appeared from the skies and in their exchange with one another Neoveta embed a demonic energy withing Lorin. Though, the demonic power that was placed within him would not begin to hone until a much later date.
His life carried on to be rather uneventful as his body began to go through puberty and all the other trials of being a teenager. Such things including some heartbreak between females that flat out rejected him. He began to become somewhat of a loner back at Karakura, making friends with people that didn't attend the school and were typically much older. That was up until his sophomore year when he encountered a female named "Jade" at a tattoo parlor. Though it was all through a misunderstanding the two developed a small relationship together and Lorin ended up obtaining a job at the parlor cleaning up here and there and working the front desk. This job would soon grow into something much greater for him.
During this same year, Lorin happened to stumble on a book thanks to a teacher at his school. As he read further and further into the book he would come to learn about his family's ancestors and their role in the world as Quincy. In researching the book he was possessed by its pages and branded with his clan's seal, the Homra seal. This seal gave him powers that he previously only read about, or rather tapped into the powers that he already had but had not yet came to realize. With this power came a rather large amount of knowledge of his abilities also.
With these powers embed to his body he began to use these abilities and hone them over the next year. Taking the surname "Homra" and leaving his home to become what he was destined to be, he has come as far as obtaining a spiritual weapon and learning a small about a form called "vollstandig". His amount of actual battle experience is rather minuet, though. With the comings times, however, it is easy to tell that this will change.
» Equipment: TBA
High Spiritual Awareness- Quincy naturally have a heightened sense of spiritual awareness compared to other classes. With this heightened sense of spiritual awareness comes a greater sense of positioning within the battlefield making them able to place distance between themselves and their opponents.
Marksmanship- While Lorin's spiritual weapon isn't that of a ranged weapon, but more of a ki blast. Accuracy and hitting your target is key. Accuracy is something that is continuously improved on even outside of training, it can also be honed with a healthy mind and body.
Martial Arts- Hand-to-hand combat is something that he learned on his own, though he has more recently decided to take on a rather abstract form of fighting: capoeira. While still a beginner in this he has caught on to the fluidity of the fighting style rather quickly and has honed some of the acrobat moves already.
» Quincy Skills:
Reishi Absorption/Manipulation- Like most Quincy, Lorin has the ability to absorb and manipulate the reishi in the surrounding area. The extent of this for Lorin is very subtle at this point. He is able to use it to enhance his defenses, offenses, or agility. More so, he uses it to enhance his bodily functions, enforcing his tendons and ligaments to move and withhold in his favor.
Above-Average Spiritual Power- The apple doesn't fall too far from the tree when it comes to the expected spiritual power of a Quincy in comparison to other races. As they are well known for their amazing spiritual power, for his power level Lorin's spiritual power is rather abnormal in comparison to those in his tier bracket.
Hirenkyaku An advanced Quincy moving technique. It allows for high-speed movements by riding on the flow of reishi created below the user's feet. To perform the technique, the user gathers spiritual particles under their feet and rides them to the desired location. Like the air-walking skill displayed by most Arrancar and Shinigami, it can also be used to hover or fly for long distances. Mayuri compliments Uryū on being able to use this technique at such a young age, suggesting that it is difficult to master. Hirenkyaku enables Quincies to keep up with and overpower faster opponents depending on the user's skill. The use of this technique aided Uryū as he defeated a seated Shinigami officer, a Números Arrancar, and even a Privaron Espada in combat. However, there is apparently more use for the technique than simply moving quickly. Upon entering Hueco Mundo through the Garganta, Ichigo Kurosaki and Chad noticed that Uryū apparently had a platform of reishi under his feet. Ichigo and Sado had trouble controlling their reiatsu on the path they were given, while he used an instance of Hirenkyaku in order to make his own individual platform. Later on, Uryū used the technique to elevate himself and Orihime Inoue through the hole Ulquiorra Cifer created in the artificial sky, and above the dome of Las Noches. He reveals that he only recently realized he could use the technique outside Garganta, and in Hueco Mundo itself, halfway to Las Noches. He also laments the fact that if he had known sooner, he might have been of some use on the battlefield. It is currently unknown if Ishida, or any other Quincy, can use this variation of Hirenkyaku outside of Hueco Mundo, within Soul Society, or the Human World. Depending on one skill with it, can show how long they can use this before tiring out.
» Spirit Weapon Name: Homra
» Spirit Weapon Appearance:
» Spirit Weapon Abilities:
Ki/Aura Manipulation- With the use of the spiritual weapon, Homra, the user is able to manipulate their spiritual power and use it as a physical force to deal damage to opponents. Through the use of beams, blasts, and waves of sorts a multitude of abilities and different forms can be used. It can be used defensively to case a particular body part and fortify it's strength making it less penetrable or softening a blow. It can be used to strengthen tendons to increase speed or power of a hit.
The aura itself has a burning effect attached to it, thus it can char and ember where it stands and can even mix with existing spiritual energy on non-user based items and terrain. Thus, the after effects of these attacks can devastate the battleground.
Homra Seal- A seal that has unlocked the spiritual power within Lorin. This seal, when activated, can tap into his clan's past endeavors. In doing this he is able to gain fragments of knowledge in fighting as a Quincy and how to utilize their powers. The seal also allows and expedited rate of learning in the control of his abilities and the realization of his own powers. Thus giving him an underlining quality to that of a prodigy.
The Homra seal holds a passive that exiles his human blood and continuously purifies it into Pure Quincy Blood. Thus, giving him the ability to use Vollstandig. This requires a constant use of his energy. Short-term, this constant use of energy is a hindrance to his power. Long-term, it is constantly helping in the expansion of his energy's threshold.
In times of strife and hardship, when Lorin is pressed into a corner, the seal will activate and an embodiment that calls himself "Homra" will take control of Lorin's entire person. As Lorin grows and is able to hold more spiritual power within himself he will be able to tap into this power at will and have control of this entity known as "Homra". When the seal is activated and Homra has taken control of Lorin's body, he gains an extreme amount of spiritual power, though it is only enough to that which he can withstand. This being approximately 20%. With this increase in spiritual power, a boost to all of his skill sets can be applied up to Master depending on the rank it was prior to the boost. In this state, Lorin is most likely provided a new ability that seems to stay with him as a token for tapping into the power.
The downfall to this state as Homra is an unconscious state after it has been used, as his mind, body, and energy are completely drained from tapping into the power.
