I. Personality» Personality:
Hono is rather protective, a trait she got from spending so much time with her mother, mainly towards her family but could expand to close friends. The girl is quite kind to her friends, though she often scares people away with her cold exterior. Hono is extremely free-spoken, expressing nearly everything to the point no matter how rude it may be. Hono is very quick-tempered and easily irritated, (She tends to get annoyed by people who abuse their power and are rather loud/annoying.). This leads to her to get into petty arguments with most (often this can cause her to get in trouble with her superiors). However, She tends to easily get along with those who don't get under her skin. The Shinigami also likes teasing others. She will often tease her friends or someone she wishes to be friends with. Hono could also be called a slob, her room has always been quite a wreck. She's also quite gullible falling for many simple lies. Hono is also known for being a bit weak-willed. The Shinigami doesn't do well under pressure or stress, it can cause her to lash out.
I. History» History:
There were two members of Gotei, Avan and Cosette. Both apart of the fifth division, Avan was rather short in stature with black hair, he was about 350 years old, appearing in his early 30s. While Cosette was a rather taller woman with pink hair just like her daughter, her age was about 300 years appearing in her late 20s. The shinigami wanted a child, though they would need a lot of Reiatsu to produce a shinigami offspring. As such, they didn't attempt to conceive a child for quite some time. Though one day, a baby did come, the couple got worried, wondering if their child would be a pulse. All they could do was wait it out. Many months passed, surprisingly the child was a Shinigami! With pink hair like her mother and yellow eyes like her father.
The parents instantly fell in love with their new child. Taking a bit of leave to spend time with their daughter, but, all good things must come to an end. After about 2 months the parents had to return to their duties. Though tragedy struck the family, when Hono was 4 months old her parents were eaten by a Hallow on a mission. What was the Soul Society to do with a parentless child? The infant was soon taken to Rukongai where she would be adopted and raised by another family.
The Shinigami now had foster parents suddenly. Though thankfully they lived in the tenth district. Her father, a man named Gaius, with jet black hair with an average build was a kendo instructor in his past life. Her new mother a blonde named Milla , she was a singer at a cafe in her past life. They were felicitous to adopt Hono, as they struggled to have children of their own. Milla really took a liking towards the child. As Hono grew older she loved her foster parents, both of them treated her like their own. At the young age of 6, Gaius and Milla decided to tell her what had happened to her real parents. Though... the child wasn't really affected, she didn't have a connection to her parents so she didn't really see a need to mourn.
Ever since she was a child she saw the Gotei go out on various missions. She always thought they were super cool! She wanted to join once she was older. Her parents were actually supportive of their daughter, despite what happened to her parents. Though the only request was that she join the fourth division as it was the safest option in their eyes. Plus they would see their daughter often.
Gaius taught the various people in the 10th district the art of kendo, including his daughter. Hono enjoyed learning the skills from her father. Despite his age, Gaius still had some skill behind him. Though as the years went on his age did get the better of him, his daughter now on par with her "master" at the age of 12. Hono was rather friendly to the people of her district despite her cold personality, she played games with a couple other children in the district, two best friends, a girl named Robin. and a boy named Keyden. Robin was younger then Keyden by about 1 year, while he was about 2 younger then Hono. Hono considered the two her little siblings after only knowing them for a short amount of time.
Not a lot happened for six years, though once Hono was 18 she returned to Seireitei to enroll in Shin'ō Academy! She did have a lot of fun surprises, despite the fact she was away from her parents and best friends. Though none the less she did find a few friends in her class, her father's kendo lessons served as a good starting point for sword training. She performed quite well, though didn't break any records. Though her personality did get her on a bit of a watch list with the teachers. Her best subject had to be swordplay, she performed above most of her classmates. After graduating, she was now 24 years old, her eyes set on joining with the Gotei United just like she always dreamed!

Yurei no Toro» Zanpakutô Spirit Appearance:
Yurei no Toro appears as a ghostly woman with a rather light blue coloration. With two large purple eyes. Two pointy ears which poke out from her hair. She also wears a dark blue dress and dons a silver amulet around her neck. Where legs would be instead a long tail takes their place. It is rather long at about 12 feet long and 6 feet in diameter. The spirit also holds a lantern incasing a purple flame identical to her eye color.» Inner World:
Yurei no Toro's inner world is a massive woodland. A labyrinth would be a great way to describe it, the exact size is unknown but if the shinigami wander off the path they could never return. Crude dirt paths branch into many different directions. A couple of lantern posts are visible which provide the primary source of light in the thick woods. Wisps can occasionally be spotted while on the path. They serve as guides, guides to help progress to the center of the forest. In the center of the forest lies a clearing, A golden brazier hosts a purple flame, as this is also where Yurei No Toro resides, the flame act as a "bed". The maze consists of many temptations, wonderful smells, and irresistible calls. The Shinigami must work their way through the forest and find Yurei no Toro's brazier.» Zanpakutô Appearance:
» Shikai Release Phrase: Illuminate! Yurei!
» Shikai Appearance: The blade of Hono's Zanpakutô disappears and is replaced by flames. The color of the flames depends on how much energy Hono puts into it starting at red and finishing at purple.
» Shikai Abilities:
Honōnoken: Hono's Shikai has a passive ability. It changes the blade of her Zanpakutô into flames, Hono is immune to the flames produced by her blade. Hono can pour energy into the blade to increase the intensity of the flames. By default it is a red color, then orange, blue, green, white, and finally purple. Purple can melt through steel in just a few seconds but strains Hono greatly and as such she can burn her self out of energy quickly.
Onibi: Hono's Shikai can produce wisps of fire, They are around 10 inches large, Hono can produce fiften of them at once. She can use them to guard herself or launch them at the enemy. She can control them independently, the intensity of the wisps depends on the current intensity of her Shikai. For example, if it's currently at the blue level her wisps would be blue. The wisps will stay until they make contact with something or until Hono makes them fizzle. The wisps can home in on targets, they do travel slowly, however.

Taken From http://khmm.boards.net
(Note Hono is a bit different there)
The door to the Twilight Town manor flew open. Enter the fencer. "Mizu! I'm not playing with you anymore!" The sister began calling out for her younger brother. Her loud tone echoed and bounced against the old walls. She decided to play a game with her brother, hide and seek to be accurate. The sword-women soon stepped into the foyer, Hono had never actually been inside of the Old Manor. Chills ran down her spine. Spider webs could be found in every corner and a tiny rat scurried past Hono. "Yuck..." she said seeing the small mouse approach a larger one, the mother it seemed. Hono sighed wishing her brother would do the same. Soon she examined the two staircases, flipping an imaginary coin in her head. The girl kept exploring as she went up the left stairs, this put her closer to the White Room.
Opening her mouth to speak. "Mizu!" her tone changed, her stern one morphed into a worried tone, this place could be dangerous for her brother. This whole manor was straight out of a horror movie, the single door stood before her. As she went to happen she was suddenly shocked by the door. Reflexes forced her to jerk her hand away, though some static noise. "W-What was that" The girl looked around, nothing really changed. Though little did the fencer know, she was now in the simulated Twilight Town. "Mizu! This isn't funny anymore!" She shouted for her brother. Next, the girl headed to the library, she was impressed by the sheer number of books! Just who owned this place... The girl wandered around the library curiously. "Mizu!" she kept shouting.
