Ignition Shikai - a unique variant of Shikai created by Ulv for added versatility, this is a stronger form than her usual Shikai, but doesn’t have the raw power of her Bankai. It is a beautiful middle ground for high-octane fights, while not threatening the surrounding area with the cataclysmic power of her Bankai. The window of Hvit’s Evolucion and Beowulf’s change from this, allowed for a quick creative insert, making something humerously called an ‘Ulvkai’ due to how it forms from Ulv’s desires, rather than Beowulf’s nature or Hvit’s power.
» Ignition Shikai Release Phrase: Ignite!
» Ignition Shikai Appearance: Retaining the appearance of her usual Shikai for the most part, there is a bit of artistic embellishment and a cool set of shoulder pads. Additionally, the Shikai is a deep amber colour, like a darker colour of her Resolve Flame. Which is fitting, since this is a Shikai that is charged by Ulv's Resolve Flame.
» Ignition Shikai Abilities: Keeping the enhancements of her Shikai, Ulv creates a pair of new forms to help her with mid-range combat, or combat that requires some form of restraint while still asking for power. The first, is her Blazing Bear Paws, in which the gauntlets ignite - the reasoning behind the form’s name - and her striking speed is increased phenomenally, allowing her to throw out a dozen blows in the space of a second. Ulv can, on the fly, change this to the Strength Form, which focuses the power of the Ignition Shikai to a small area, allowing for devastating blows with little surrounding effect.
The second form is the Proud Ursine Fangs, in which her armoured boots ignite, and allow her to greatly enhance her leg-based martial arts, most notably Re-Taekwando. These kicks have heavily focused concussive energy stored, and each blow can throw off the target’s stance and disturb their ability to fight, as the energy ragdolls their body. » Why:

I really did try hard not to make this.

[adm]I'm going to need to deny this, and here's my reasoning for it:
The idea of creating a shikai variant isn't a new one, but Ulv is one of the few characters who have extensive variants across their character. One of the key downsides of having extra powerful bankais is the latent destructive damage done to the world around you. Furthermore, it seems in bad taste to just make a shikai variant with the sole purpose of being stronger than your base shikai; so you can fight harder. I also don't see any threads done for this, therefor I cannot approve this.
-Creating a variant of shikai to be stronger, with the express purpose of just being stronger than shikai but weaker than bankai.
-Ulv already has an extensive list of Vizard variants of which she can use with her shikai.
-There looks to be no work done for it.
The issues do not lay with balancing of abilities, but with the principle and it's intended effect can be reached through other means. One of those last problems with Mirja was how extensive her list of abilties and techniques where getting, try to keep that in mind as it seems to be a small concern for me now.[/adm]
