I. Personality» Personality:
Playful: Her staple, what people think of when they think “Azela”. She’s a very giddy person, often teasing those within her general vicinity and cracking very generic jokes when they really aren’t funny nor needed. Mose if not all subjects are taken very light-heartedly at face value and seemingly thrown to the side while she gets back to toying around.
Workaholic: She needs something to do. Something that makes her feel the least most productive, something to give her purpose. Azela doesn’t find the act of labor necessarily boring or tedious, often enjoying helping out others for free or extending her service for money, it’s all the same to her. Often she finds herself with a load of free time, and putting it into something helps get her mind off it. Normally, she’ll use this to train herself or teach others if there is no job available at the moment.
Strategic: How could she not be, it’s what she was raised to do. Her father was known for his incredible war tactics, so he expected his favorite daughter to follow in his footsteps. So, since she was a child, she was taught to be very observant of her surroundings, what was there, and who was there. The wouldn’t be a moment where Azela wasn’t keeping track of something in the general vicinity, though granted she sometimes forgets even when she’s constantly doing it.
Intrusive: People are quick to notice that Azela is quite nosy when it comes to other people’s affairs. This is partly due to her not being all that interesting of a person, so she resorts to knowing what everyone else is doing to sate her boringness. If someone were to confront her on it, she would just blame curiosity.
Bashful: She hates to be center of attention, but at the same time she sort of enjoys it. She gets embarrassed very easily, especially when praised for a deed she has done. Often confused for humility, Azela actually wants to be praised and complimented but at the same time is conflicted on how to react. Most would just accept and move on but since she wasn’t really given attention as a child she doesn’t know what to respond back with most of the time.
I. History» History:
Back when she was alive, Azela was like any normal human girl. She was raised by loving parents who tried their hardest to keep her happy and well. Though all their trying ended failing, because when she turned 16 she had become deathly ill. At the time this disease wasn't known to man, and only a few people had have contracted it. Eventually she had gotten worse and worse, until she died at 19. Her plus life was a calm life, calmer than her life as a living. She didn't have that many encounters with hollows, only seeing one every few or so months. She was also rather accepting of her state. She knew she was dead and was alright with it. After about 2 years of being a plus soul, she was found by a Shinigami and transferred over to the soul society.
Her life in the soul society was somewhat eventful yet peaceful one. Almost immediately after she arrived in the Rukongai, she was adopted into a small noble family. They were a bit more on the wealthy side, and she was their only child. Being the type of person she is, she at first declined the offer and lived on he own for about a week. Though after seeing and comparing the way a homeless would live to how a noble would, she reconsidered and joined the Kochi family. During her time there, she was taught by her adoptive parents about the world of the soul society and recommended her to the Shinigami academy. At first, like always, she was reluctant to join or even consider the place. She wasn't really one for fighting, as she just wanted to live her life in peace. She tried avoiding anything that would remind her or her parents of the soul society, which was actually quite hard because their second adopted child aspired to be a Shinigami when they grew up. Azela ended up growing fond of her little sibling and decided to become a role model for them, and for her to do that she ended up joining the academy.
Her time at the academy wasn't a pleasant time. She at first had fallen behind in terms of skill, plus she wasn't that much of a as social person so people tended to stay away from her. She was mainly alone and by herself, though she really didn't need anyone else to get her though her life. Even when other people tried to approach her and help her, knowing that she needed help with her classes, she still pushed them away. Eventually, she did break from her shell, approached by a handful of other boys that had tried to get close to her because of her looks. She was naive and gullible, too quick to trust these boys and follow them wherever they told her to go. She was desperate though, for friends and to graduate from the academy.
All of her efforts were for nothing though,as she was held back. She didn't take this as a failure, but as a motivation. She tried even harder to improve herself in both Zanjutsu and Kido. She was still in touch with the boys that tried to help her out last year, and she frequently asked them questions on how to do various things. At the end, she ended up being one of the people with the highest skill in her class. She even ended up graduating a year early, with the class she was originally with.
As a full fledged shinigami, Azela was assigned to squad 1. The people there treated her no different than how the people at the academy treated her. She at first began to think that something was wrong with her when she was approached by a fellow squadmate. She began to become awfully closes to this squadmate, as they began to do various things together such as eat lunch and kill hollows. They ended up becoming best of friends,and at one point they had ended up asking her out, which she had harshly declined as she had thought of them as a friend.
Though one day, when they were out in the Rukongai, her friend had invited her to train with them. Trusting them, she had followed and was knocked out by said friend. Her friend had only gotten close to her so they could do this: transform her into a vizard. At the time, people going missing wasn't that uncommon, but most people had written it off as hollows because soon after they had disappeared a hollow was sighted.
Injected with the virus, Azela had met her inner world. It was beautiful, but she wasn't able admire it for long as she was met by a person. This person was a female, completely white with purple eyes. She looked like something Azela had never seen. The mysterious woman had referred to herself as Azela, which was confusing to the actual Azela for obvious reason. She went further on, explaining that she was Azela's inner hollow her to take over her body. Azela had drew her sword, ready for combat, but her hollow stopped her. Saying that they were going to play a game of wits, a simple game known as rock-paper-scissors. This was a game that seemed simple to Azela, a game that she did not think at all for, luck being her guide. They kicked off the game: first round went to the hollow as she threw rock and Azela threw scissors. The next round occurred: Azela coming out victorious with paper and the hollow losing with rock once more. The final round was surprising: Azela won with rock, overthrowing the hollow's scissors. The hollow gave up, appearing to kill herself with the a reverse-colored Zanpakutō that looked like Azela's.
The battle was short and over, but Azela found herself still in her inner world. Yet another spirit approached her, this one looking to be a dark-skinned child. They didn't meet nor have a conversation, as the girl only said one word: Ātisuto. At first it sounded like static, so the girl repeated herself: Ātisuto. It was clear to Azela, but she didn't know what it meant. Though she didn't have time to think it over as the world around her began to crumble. She decided to repeat what the girl had said: Ātisuto. On that command she came to in the soul society, but not where she went unconscious. She found herself surrounded by destruction, covered in blood, dead bodies scattered around her.

I. Sealed Powers » Zanpakutô Name:
Ātisuto» Zanpakutô Spirit Appearance:
Atisuto takes the appearance of a female from Japan. Her face is very masculine, with her seemingly always having a scowl on her face as if something was wrong. Their hair is short and black, though it is often kept up with a yellow ribbon. Along their left arm are a plethora of tattoos, many of them symbolizing different stories from Japanese folklore. The rest of her attire is that of a kimono missing an arm, most notably the left.» Inner World:
Azela's inner world is modeled off of peace. It's a forest full of sakura trees, all of them blooming. There's always a strong wind there, causing a nonstop flurry of sakura leaves at all times. It smells of sweets, a smell that very few know how to put into words. The sun is eternal, but it's nothing like the sun in the real world. The sun here is a bright pink, and it emits no heat. Thus, the world is always on the colder side.» Zanpakutô Appearance: It looks like a standard katana, but the guard is round and made of gold while the hilt is black and gold. (There's a link)» Sealed Zanpakutô Power:
I. Shikai» Shikai Release Phrase:
"Fade to black, Ātisuto"» Shikai Appearance: » Shikai Abilities:Conversion:
Azela’s shikai is different than most. While a majority of shinigami have their zanpakuto turn into another weapon for them to use, Azela’s turns into a book. Well, more specifically it’s a grimoire, a medium for her to use the multitude of abilities that she has and will have. Each page has a different technique, or “spell”, on it that either pertains to her shikai or kido, allowing for tok essentially know almost all kido as she can just read the incantation straight from her grimoire.Ink Well:
The theme of her abilities. Most of the techniques in which she will use utilize a black liquid. This liquid has the consistency of water and honestly can be assumed that it is just “black water” though what separates it from water is that once it stains, it never comes off. Though it’s not like the liquid itself does anything by itself, so just that aspect of the ability is pretty useless. But it becomes useful once Azela starts to use her spells.Ink Explosion:
All currently active ink within a mile radius explodes. This is only possible if Azela has eye contact with the body of ink she wants to detonate, so she doesn’t accidently blow up an ally who was dumb enough to get caught in the ink. The explosion size is dependent on the amount of ink in the area. This explosion is black in color, and specs of ink tend to fly when this technique is over.
