15 in human years» Gender:
N/A» Appearance Written:
Yuu when he was human, usually likes to where casual clothing and not the top notch and good looking variant, that most people tend to go for nowadays. He really wasn't the type to cater for style and, cheap looks to impress people. Yuu doesn't dress to impress and, practically wears whatever they want to wear. Yuu stood about, 5 feet and 8 inches tall. When he was about 15, the age that he recently died in. Nothing physically about him changed ever since he was in the soul society. Yuu keeps his youthful appearance and, always appeared to be woman like, with; light toupe hair which she keeps in pigtails, although there are certain times he may stylize them into buns or wear them straight down.
When he was alive however, he wore a typical school uniform, consisting of: a white blouse with a yellow sweater vest, a green striped tie, a red plaid skirt, and black boots with white buckles. He also appears to wear a long trench coat, even when in soul society. However, he wears the basic black shinigami outfit, with a white sash around him.

I. Personality» Personality:
Yuu didnt have any problems with people and, in fact was able to communicate with others well but still had struggled with keeping friends. His life was rather short lived, in the human world so all he could blame was himself. Though, he wasn't the type to admit his wrong doing and all that jazz. He mainly doesn't admit to things, because his stubborn attitude is usually in the way and always feels embarrass when he does. It is somewhat obvious to tell, if he had did something wrong but won't say it.
People can tell if he has done something wrong, if he plays with his hair more often than not and he is rarely seen fiddling with his hair. If he is seen messing with his hair, he is always nervous when he does however.
Yuu is only nervous during big events, and or being under pressure which leads to him usually doubting in himself and the things he is capable of doing. Though he doesn't know that for sure, since 9/10 he doesn't particularly give it his very all. Yuu was interested in things, that relate to science and mostly books. He is interested in knowledge and, would research various things that peaks his interest. Yuu is knowledgeable is certain things and, mostly know about the history of death gods and if they exist or not. It points to his interest in ghost, ironically. He doesn't think that shinigami's are just mere ghosts, but powerful spirites that helps people and balance the world between their world and his world. He believe that in order for shinigami's to do such things, is if they're ordered by someone of higher rank that is like the guardian of these death gods.
Yuu generally walks with his hand behind him, or his arms crossed beneath his chest. Sometimes yuu is seen made fun of, for his looks. Simply because he looks more like a woman than the gender he represents. Though he is always getting mistaken, for a girl often than not. He didn't really bother, when people choose to make fun of his appearance.
Yuu can be described as a very resentful person, who doesn't show much or any true desire of rather much anything. They display a bit of bitterness, usually when things doesn't go the way they want it too or, being bored for an extended period of time. Most times he's a bit energetic and, doesn't care about his own actions when showing off their perky charm. Under that rigid and resentful behavior, he can be quite welcoming and show some sort of excitement when there is something that excites them. Somethings that excite them, are things like: things that they don't expect, as they're prone to have low expectations for people. They're also most excited when opponents stronger than him, and or stronger than his peers. Yuu likes a good fight and, not a fight that can be wasted.
He practically doesn't want their time being wasted on and, though yuu will go out of their way to toy with those that they feel like they're stronger against them. He isn't the type to underestimate his opponents, he is smart enough to know if someone is strong or weak. However, it most cases that isn't involved fighting--he can be the one to be fooled and, wouldn't really notice it. Though most times, they can be aware. It's quite hard to please someone like yuu, as there aren't much things that they really enjoy other than a really good fight, or mellowing out with peace and quiet and, tea if that. Yuu can be easily stubborn and, could immediately tell if there is something wrong with someone. He doesn't like liars, despite sometimes being one which can make him hypocritical at times.
Yuu isn't so determined to win, or to survive. They're the type to not think about death and, doesn't care if they die or not. It's simply known, that they don't feel death despite already being dead. There are times, when yuu is happy about being dead--just so he could escape all of those mistakes and enemies he had made in the past. Without a doubt, yuu really does not care about his past and isn't interested in telling his tales and, not interested in anyone else's.
I. History» History:
Not all lives are as long as the ocean, that spreads across the world. There can be some, that are undoubtedly short lived--such as yuu's. Yuu's life had cut expectantly short. Did he saw it coming? Was it a curse that he carelessly brought to himself? Was it health issues? It surely wasn't health issues, considering that he was as healthy as an average vegan. Yuu ikeda didn't entirely see that his death would come, his life wasn't very miserable either as well. The possibilities that he could have live longer, would have been extended far across the land. However, he never choses to really have an extended human life up to where he was able to see paranormal things at a young age. Yuu didn't really care about his surroundings at the time when he was alive, which makes it seem that death could be next to him at any given moment. But he wasnt the type to ever care about death at all, he always looked at it dead in the eye and challenge it to a battle.
The battle began, with random sitings of Hallows that always occur around night and possibly day. Those hungry and, lifeless creatures that comes out like a new born baby to feed the souls of the living. They wait until the death gods can destroy them, with all their might. It's common for humans to die by the hands of a hallow. Yuu never wondered how he would die, but he never liked talking about it so it never came to mind until that very day. Death was inevitable then and, the battle that he challenge against death had already included. Since most humans know that you can't escape death, unless you're very smart and clever about it. In this case, yuu wasn't any of those. He was special in a way, since he could see ghosts and all that crazy junk that he never shared with others and, never wonder if other people like him could see them as well.
The day that yuu died by a hallow, was the day that he thought that would happen. Ever since his uncle died by one and, most of his friends disappeared--not because of a hallow however. But more of his character, so he didn't have any regrets or any last words before he died. Yuu went up and accepted his fate and, moved on to the after life or what they call places that shinigami's became actual shinigami's. Though one might say that it isn't easy to become one and, that you needed to be gifted by the "ones". Luckily he was gifted, he was destined to start out a new life and, start out his new life as a shinigami. He wasnt able to fully remember how he actually died, but if he did--he wouldn't really care about it.
The reason why yuu dismisses the idea of death and, the thought about it in general is because he doesn't want to be reminded about it. Yuu doesn't want to be reminded, since in this world--death is inevitable and, one cannot simply escape death and death is bound to happen. He thinks that way, because it's some sort of survival mechanism built in him that makes him believe that in order to not think about it. You'll have to not deal with it and, never let it cross your mind or you may feel clouded. Yuu believes that in order to achieve a better ending, you have to live life to the fullest and accept whatever outcome that the overseers placed.
Yuu's parents weren't anything special, though his mother however was a Shinigami at the time. His father was a teacher, getting minimum wage at the school that yuu ikeda had attended prior to his death. Both of his parents seemed to almost kept a healthy relationship, even his father didn't stop his mothers Shinigami duties to make the best for his family. Yuu was able to see ghost, like mentioned before. At a very young age, though he wasnt sure that if he was the only one that was able to see them. It was more or less a gift that was brought upon him, from the overseers themselves.
Yuu was more or less was interested in ghosts, but still felt a bit uncomfortable being able to actually see them for the first time. He always knew that ghosts where in fact real and, was practically into science and paranormal stuff at the time. Its common that hallow attacks occur on a daily basis. While heading home, he didn't really pay much attention to his surroundings and was caught off guard. He was then, taken by a hallow but the hallow that took his life soon exterminate it by the time yuu made it to the rukon district of soul society.

Aoi honō» Zanpakutô Spirit Appearance:
Ao Hono appears to be more taller than his master, who stands about 5 feet and 11 inches tall.

Ao hono has a slight dark skin tone, while still appearing to have light skin. He has a slim build, but with a skinny physique. Yuu wears a sleeveless dark grey uwagi, a long-sleeved black undershirt with a turtleneck, a red sash, black pants and white boots. His eyes are colored in an onyx black look, with rosé coloured hair style. » Inner World:
Aoi inner world appears to be a desert, that sheds no light but the candles lit around in aoi cave once you travel far into his world. The reason why a cage is in the middle of the desert, is so that the cage can suppress aoi power when he's in it. He could, however freely break out of it since he isn't accompanied by any chains and what not.

Usage - Yuu's shikai has the ability that whatever that his flames touches, can became softer or harder. Depending on his own will; if he hits his target, it can make them more fearful and defensive.
