S H I N I G A M I

B A S I C I N F O R M A T I O N

Name: Shunsui Kyoraku
Gender: Male
Age: Unknown
Appearance:



Shunsui Kyōraku is a tall Shinigami with grey eyes and long wavy brown hair (though during the flashbacks of his youth, Shunsui is shown to have straight and significantly shorter hair). His hair is tied in a long ponytail and has long bangs that frame the left side of his face. He wears a straw hat (called a sakkat) and a pink, flowered ladies kimono, which he drapes across his shoulders and over his captain's uniform. He has thin facial hair around his mouth and on his cheeks. Although his haori and obi sash are cheap, his pin-wheel hairpins are very expensive. Like Ikkaku Madarame, he does not wear tabi with his sandals.

Height: 192 cm (6'3½")
Weight: 87 kg (191 lbs.)

__________________________________________________________________________

P E R S O N A L I T Y

Personality:

Kyōraku is a laid back and flamboyant man, evident in his style of dress and general attitude, and he is rarely seen without a smile on his lips. In his off time, he can be seen drinking sake in bars and napping. He likes steamed buns that go with sake, but dislikes powdered green tea. Other times, he likes to chase after women, particularly his lieutenant, Nanao Ise, whom he calls "my Nanao-chan" (Lil' Nanao in the English Dub). Nanao will often respond by hitting him with whatever she has on hand. He would have also done this when Lisa Yadōmaru was his lieutenant, which shows that teasing is a part of his personality. Kyōraku tends to use a more familiar speech style than most other characters. He generally refers to his fellow captains and Shinigami by their first name followed by an honorific. Kyōraku is a peace-loving man who will always try to talk his way out of a fight, though he doesn't wish to insult opponents by refusing to fight. The slightly eccentric Kyōraku also seems to like making an impression on opponents. He also dislikes taking the life of innocent people, as he left Chad alive when Nanao offered to kill him.
Captain Kyōraku also wrote a romance novel titled "Rose-colored Path", which runs in Seireitei Communication, but is very unpopular. Kyōraku does not receive a single fan letter or gift for his birthday from his readers but he is also not bothered by this at all. Like with many other captains, the Shinigami Women's Association released a photo collection on Kyōraku. His collection was titled "Using Arms as My Pillow". It quickly sold out, partially because it came out in lesser number of copies than similar collections by the other captains. However, it has not been re-printed but Kyōraku is unaware of this.

Though Kyōraku tries to talk his way out of a fight, he does insist on fighting when the situation is grave, as seen in his battle with the First Espada, Coyote Starrk. When Starrk asked that they only pretend to fight, he replied that he couldn't do that "this time", as much as he prefers to do things the same way. He is also one of the most proficient combatants in Soul Society, and maintains a level of honor and integrity when engaging in battle, much like his best friend Jūshirō. He refuses to fight with children or even in the presence of a child. He always maintains a semblance of respect for his opponent and is polite in combat situations and prefers to fight one on one. Even when fighting powerful opponents, like Starrk or Aizen, he never (or at least rarely) loses his cool, going as far as to make small talk and joke around with his opponents.

Despite being one of the strongest and oldest captains, Kyōraku retains a level of humbleness and isn't overly arrogant about his strength, although when fighting Starrk, he does comment on how the fight "wouldn't be too easy" even after finding out that Starrk is the 1st Espada, but he does recognize that Hitsugaya has the potential to become stronger than him given enough time. Kyōraku has shown a great distaste for fighting, telling Love Aikawa that it doesn't matter whether you owe someone or they owe you, as soon as you start fighting, you are in the wrong either way.

B A C K G R O U N D

History/Background: Shunsui is the second son of the high-ranking noble Kyōraku family. Despite being of such old and prestigious lineage, he disliked studying and training, and preferred to chase the ladies, although being told by General Yamamoto that he was able to see the truth and was wise for his age. Because of this, he was sent against his will to the Shin'ō Reijutsu Academy (Shinigami Academy). While there he came to know Jūshirō Ukitake, who would become his best friend and fellow captain. He, along with Jūshirō Ukitake, was one of the first Shinigami to become a captain through the Shinigami academy. Furthermore, he was personally trained by Yamamoto. He and Ukitake are the oldest captains amongst the Gotei 13, with the exception of Retsu Unohana and Yamamoto himself. It was stated that the four of them have been Captains of the Gotei 13 for at least 100 years as of 110 years ago before the current time.

110 years ago, he was shown to have a unique relationship with his Lieutenant Lisa Yadōmaru, though in contrast to his relationship with his current Lieutenant Nanao Ise, Lisa was more outgoing and perverted in a way much like his own personality. But he found that his position required him to be the "adult" in the situation. He was also the first to casually mention, to an inquisitive lieutenant Sōsuke Aizen, that the previous 12th Division Captain was promoted to the Royal Guard. He was also present at the promotion ceremony of the newly appointed 12th Division captain Kisuke Urahara.
9 years later Shunsui was present at an emergency meeting called by Captain-Commander Yamamoto. He decided to create an investigative team to locate the missing 9th Division squad members. When he gave out the orders, Yamamoto ordered Shunsui to guard the Seireitei. When Yamamoto decided to send both Kidō Captain Tessai Tsukabishi and Kidō Lieutenant Hachigen Ushōda of the Kidō Corps, Shunsui instead advised him to send only Hachi and replaced Tessai with his own lieutenant, Lisa. He tried to cheer up a shaken Kisuke Urahara, telling him not to worry about his lieutenant, Hiyori Sarugaki, who was sent to help the 9th Division, because she was strong, though not as strong as Lisa.

During a night-walk he met up some squad members, and also noticed lieutenant Sōsuke Aizen taking a night walk. Later in his barracks he was addressed by a very young Nanao Ise, who had come to see his Lieutenant, Lisa Yadōmaru. Shunsui then remembered that Nanao always came to him around the first of every month to have Lisa read to her. Nanao confirmed this, only to be told that Lisa was away on a mission, but would be back soon.

Shunsui first appears during the captain's emergency meeting called by General Yamamoto. However he says nothing at this time, and remains silent throughout the constant bickering between his fellow officers.

Shunsui is among the first Captains to encounter the "Ryoka". He meets up with Yasutora Sado in his division's compound. There, he gently drifts down from a second level to the ground amidst falling petals (scattered by Nanao), then rises to announce his name to Chad.

After his flashy appearance Kyōraku sits down and tells Chad that he dislikes fighting and even offers him something to drink, something Chad responds to by a violent "No" because it is forbidden for minors to drink, something Kyōraku also realizes is a problem.

Chad proceeds to politely ask the captain to move out the way as he himself would also like to avoid the fight. However, despite Shunsui's humor and his dislike for combat, once Chad engages him, it is seen that he is not a mere fool, but someone not to be taken lightly. He deflects Chad’s first attack with one arm, and then proceeds to dodge all of Chad’s attacks. Trying to stop Chad from going further, he asks Chad why he continues to fight, and for what reason. Despite his attempts to stop him both through speech and action, Chad continues to come at him. Seeing his determination, Shunsui decides reluctantly to wound him, though he tells Chad that he plans to kill him, having no choice. Taking out his two swords, he watches as Chad runs towards him, then dodges Chad’s attack and slashes him.

At this time, the message that Sōsuke Aizen has been murdered arrives and Nanao informs him of this news. Taking a look at Chad, she realizes he is not dead and asks to deliver the finishing blow. Stopping her, Shunsui rationalizes that if it were indeed one of the Ryoka who had killed Aizen, it would then be better to keep him alive and question him instead. He then asks her to send for people from the 4th Squad to heal Chad.

Later, right before Rukia’s execution, a harried Nanao finds Kyōraku on a rooftop, chewing on a blade of grass. Asking him to hurry up, Nanao is irked when Shunsui again tries to joke with her as usual. Then, getting serious, he asks her what he should do. She then replies that no matter what, he will still do what he wants. All she can do is keep right behind him and stay out of trouble. Shunsui gives a sigh and says, "Then it will again be me that will get into trouble with Yama-jii (Yamamoto)." At the execution, after Ichigo Kurosaki stops the Sōkyoku from executing Rukia, Ukitake appears with a shield sporting the Shihōin house crest and with Shunsui eliminates Sōkyoku from the scene. After the ruckus, they are left shocked when Ichigo destroys the Sōkyoku Stand, and then Ichigo engages Byakuya Kuchiki after defeating three lieutenants. Trying to help her sister, Kiyone Kotetsu runs forward and is followed by her colleague Sentarō Kotsubaki. Sentarō is then hit by Suì-Fēng and when Ukitake runs forward to stop Suì-Fēng, he is in turn stopped by Yamamoto.

Yamamoto gravely states that what they have done is beyond mere punishment and that they are not ignorant of what that means. Shunsui then shows his thinking skills by grabbing Ukitake and running away first, with Nanao in close pursuit. Ukitake then asks Shunsui to release him as he wanted to save his subordinates. Shunsui asks him not to worry, as on the one hand, they had to take the fight elsewhere, or else Yamamoto’s power would most likely cause more casualties, and on the other hand, someone else was coming to help.

Running to a deserted spot, they reach the site and are confronted by Yamamoto. When Nanao is nearly suffocated by Yamamoto’s spiritual pressure, Shunsui breaks their eye contact, and brings her via Shunpo to a safe place, and returns to the compliments of Yamamoto.

Following a brief exchange of words, Yamamoto draws his Zanpakutō against them. As he flares up, and releases his Zanpakutō’s Shikai, he then asks them both to do the same as anything else would be a disgraceful death. He and Ukitake then engage in the fight against Yamamoto, resulting in a large explosion.

During their fight, they receive news, from 4th Division Lieutenant Isane Kotetsu, that Aizen had in fact been a traitor, and all three rush to the Sōkyoku grounds. After Aizen’s successful escape, Shunsui is later seen trying to join in on the drinking with Rangiku Matsumoto and Izuru Kira, only to be told no by Rangiku as she states Nanao is looking for him and if she catches him drinking with them they will only get scolded by her.

Kyōraku is seen when Yamamoto calls him alongside the other Gotei 13 captains for an emergency meeting.

When Aizen and his army invade the fake Karakura Town, Shunsui asks Ukitake who he believes is the strongest of the Espada. When Yamamoto decides to take Aizen and the other defected former Captains out of the equation so that the Espada could be dealt with first, Shunsui yells for Ukitake to get down when he realizes the Captain-Commander is releasing his Shikai. When Ukitake questions the necessity of that level of power, Shunsui tells him he guesses that just means Yamamoto is not in a good mood. During the battle against the Arrancar, Shunsui matches himself against the Espada Coyote Starrk. Though Kyōraku agrees with Starrk's attitude and tells him that he too would have preferred "fake" fighting, he also says that avoiding the fight is not an option this time.
.
He then takes notice of the fight between Rangiku Matsumoto, Momo Hinamori and Tia Harribel's Fracción, asking Starrk if they should also put on a show. Starrk is not amused at Shunsui's attempt at humor and flatly refuses to fight. Starrk states that neither of them is fighting at full strength anyway. Starrk then makes note of how Shunsui's short sword is still being sheathed. When Shunsui explains why, Starrk further notes that Shunsui is obviously ambidextrous and that he is stronger with his left hand than his right, therefore Starrk does not quite believe his excuse for his supposed lack of using his short sword. Shunsui is somewhat amused at Starrk's observations and comments on how he thought he had corrected his strength difference. Shunsui then proceeds to attack Starrk which the latter then dodges. Afterwards, Shunsui then surprises Starrk by switching hands in mid attack and correcting his swing, making his right hand strength match his left. After Starrk comments on the change, Shunsui asks him whether he will take the fight seriously if he were to unsheathe his short sword, to which Starrk comments that Shunsui is already strong enough and he would not want him using his short sword. Shunsui decides then to unsheathe his sword.

Shunsui is able to deduce the ranks of the top three Espada by sensing their battles. He states that Starrk's female ally (Harribel) is the third strongest, and it would be easier on him if the old guy (Baraggan) was the strongest, implying Shunsui thinks differently. Starrk then says he's sorry to disappoint him as he takes off his glove and reveals the number 1 tattooed on his hand. Shunsui smiles and comments that it wouldn't be too easy.

Shunsui appears to be evenly matched with Starrk as he does not seem to express any form of difficulty while battling. The Primera even commented that he is surprised that Shunsui was able to dodge his attacks 'without losing his hat and kimono'. A thin trail of blood however trickles down from Shunsui's head, probably due to the slight cut of his bamboo hat. As the battle progresses, Starrk fires a Cero at Shunsui, only for him to state "No finishing pose or anything?". Starrk then begins to show irritation by scolding Shunsui not to run away. Starrk is then seen to be staring in horror at Hitsugaya's approaching cloud.

Starrk then watches Baraggan Luisenbarn being hit by Suì-Fēng's Bankai and looks over to the obelisk of ice that has Harribel imprisoned and questions Shunsui whether all their Bankais are that powerful. Shunsui replies with a smile and calls them their secret weapons. Starrk proceeds to ask if his own Bankai was more powerful than Hitsugaya's. Shunsui then replies that while he is uncertain of it in a hundred years or so, it is possible that Hitsugaya might become more powerful than himself. Starrk then deduces that currently Shunsui is the strongest; realizing what Starrk is leading to Shunsui throws his pink kimono to Ukitake. When Ukitake wonders what Kyōraku is doing, Shunsui replies by saying that he believes Starrk finally wants to fight for real, something Starrk confirms by saying that he wants to see Shunsui's Bankai. He then sheaths his Zanpakutō and calls Lilynette over. He explains that he and Lilynette are in fact one. While other Hollows split their power into their sword and body, they split into two bodies instead. He also reveals that once they are one again their full power would be released. With that, Starrk releases his Resurrección form while Shunsui releases his Zanpakutō's Shikai.

Shunsui proceeds to attack Starrk while he is talking, to which Starrk moves back with ease. Starrk begins to comment on how Shunsui would attack while he is talking. But before Starrk can finish talking, Shunsui uses his Bushōgoma technique. Starrk parries the attack and fires a large Cero from one of his guns. Starrk then tells Shunsui he seems a little panicked and that is not at all like him. Shunsui responds that he meant to kill him with the first blow, but his release must be really something if he could parry it. He then deduces that Starrk's gun fires Ceros. Starrk confirms but completely denies it can do anything else when Shunsui asks whether it's capable of more. Shunsui accuses Starrk of being a bad liar. Starrk says the same of Shunsui. Starrk then tells him he made him release his "pain in the ass Resurrección", so he better show him his Bankai. Shunsui mentions that he has no intention of showing him no matter how strong he has gotten, especially if he is just going to fire Cero's. Starrk responds by firing his Cero Metralleta as Shunsui, to which he flash steps away. Starrk fires again and tells him that he can't escape, Shunsui dodges exclaiming how that attack is unfair. Ukitake jumps in front of Shunsui after unleashing his Shikai and negates the multiple Ceros with a blast of his own.

Shunsui begins to speak, but Ukitake cuts him off explaining that he shouldn't complain because the Arrancar are double teaming him and his coming to his aid is only fair. Ukitake then comments that besides that Shunsui doesn't seem to want to use his Bankai. Shunsui assures him that he will eventually. But Ukitake says that he shouldn't use it out in the open where anyone could see. Ukitake continues by saying that in any case his powers are better suited for this sort of fight. Starrk interrupts by asking Ukitake how he fired a Cero. Ukitake plainly says that he may figure out if he does it again. Determined to figure out Ukitake's power, Starrk fires again much to Lilynette's protest that it's most likely a trap. They engage in a few mutual attacks, then Starrk uses Sonidō to get closer to Ukitake and explains what he has learned of his ability. Ukitake is surprised that he figured it out after only three attacks. Starrk then expresses that he is glad that Ukitake's power isn't to reflect any and all attacks back at his opponent. Starrk surmises that if Ukitake has to absorb the attack first, there has to be a limit to what can be absorbed. He then tells Ukitake that he doesn't think he'll be able to absorb the attack if he fires 1,000 shots at once.


Before Starrk can fire, Shunsui appears behind him and tries to cut off his head, but Starrk dodges and fires a large Cero which Shunsui also dodges. Starrk comments on how such actions aren't like him, to which Shunsui responds that he shouldn't make judgements as he is the one not acting like himself. Starrk's simple reply is that he thought they both were alike. Then seemingly out of nowhere, a Garganta begins to open, surprising the three combatants. Ukitake asks Shunsui if it's someone new. Shunsui asks in response if Ukitake thinks it is someone who could back up the top three Espada, because he hopes it isn't. When the Garganta is fully open, Wonderweiss Margela walks through. Ukitake and Shunsui both question who he is, while Starrk says his name, just as surprised to see him there being accompanied by Fūrā.
While Ukitake's attention is on Fūrā, Wonderweiss attacks him from behind, impaling him in the back and out through his chest with his hand. Seeing this, Shunsui goes to attack the Arrancar but is quickly shot at point blank range by a Cero to the back by Starrk, with both captains falling down to the buildings below. However, Kyōraku appears to be largely uninjured as pointed out by Lisa Yadōmaru, who stomps on his head and demands to know how long he was planning on playing dead. Kyōraku then proceeds to compliment Lisa and says he is glad that she is all right.

Just as Starrk is about to finish off Love and Rose, Kyōraku stabs him from the shadows. Kyōraku was actually hiding in the shadows thanks to the ability of his Zanpakutō. He then proceeds to explain the abilities of his Zanpakutō, denying Starrk's charge that he was hiding his powers; stating that his Zanpakutō was not in the mood for that game before and that though he loves his sword, it is very selfish and he doesn't like playing with it because it jerks him around. He then proceeds to fight Starrk using a new color-based game that ends with Kyōraku slashing Starrk upwards targeting his black hollow hole after calling the color black.

As the dying Starrk falls, Love appears behind Shunsui and thanks him. Shunsui responds by saying that he is just glad they are safe. Love then tells him that he never changes; always butting into other people's battles and that he has no style. Shunsui returns his Zanpakutō to its sealed state and tells Love that "only underlings get caught up in matters of style" and that a captain can't afford such indulgences. He then goes on to state that "If you owe someone or they owe you, the moment you start to fight you're in the wrong either way".

Shunsui is next seen with the remaining unoccupied Shinigami and Vizard planning to protect Ichigo Kurosaki from Aizen and his Shikai. As Hitsugaya attacks Aizen, Kyōraku attacks his flank with his Shikai, but hits a barrier, which cracks slightly. When Aizen tells Hitsugaya that it is good that he is not attacking alone, Shunsui accuses him of calling Tōshirō a coward. Shunsui later attacks Aizen as he is conversing with Hitsugaya, but Sōsuke evades the attack and complains that he interrupted their discussion. Kyōraku responds that he is not very good at hearing when a man is talking, as just listening is boring. When Hitsugaya activates his Bankai and states that he intends to violently cut and crush Aizen, Shunsui tells him not to be hasty.

Aizen then critically injures and dispatches of Love, Komamura, Rose and Lisa. He is seen then confronted by Suì-Fēng. She creates clones of herself and charges. When Aizen tries to attack, he finds his arm encased in ice. Suì-Fēng is able to hit Aizen with Nigeki Kessatsu but it is ineffective as Aizen comments that while her technique is interesting, his reiatsu would crush her attacks and powers as a battle between Shinigami is one of reiatsu. However, Aizen is surprised as he is attacked from a shadow. Shunsui reveals himself from having used his Kageoni technique, stating Aizen is careless as there is a shadow on the ice. Shunsui then looks on as Aizen is run through by Hitsugaya. Much to Shinigami and Vizard's horror, it is then discovered that Aizen had already been using his Kyōka Suigetsu to somehow deceive his enemies into stabbing Momo instead. As Hitsugaya goes to attack Aizen in a blind rage, Shunsui and the other captain-level warriors are distracted trying to stop him. Aizen proclaims that they are all wide open and proceeds to strike down Shunsui, Shinji, Hitsugaya, and Suì-Fēng. As they fall into the town below, Aizen states that he will not kill them and that they are to watch the outcome of this battle.

Ten days later, after Aizen is captured and Shunsui is fully healed, he is called with Byakuya and Kenpachi to discuss the loss of their respective captain haori with Yamamoto. While the Captain-Commander is furious at the loss, the captains are indifferent to the matter. Shunsui's only complaint on the matter was thinking them being nothing more than stylish, which makes Yamamoto all the angrier.

Zanpakutô Spirit Name:

Katen Kyōkotsu (花天狂骨; Viz "Flower-Heaven Bone of Madness"; Flower Heaven, Crazy Bone)

Appearance:

Spoiler:
 

Katen Kyōkotsu's spirit takes the form of two women. One is a tall, purple-haired woman with a red ribbon around her neck and an eye patch covering her right eye. Her left is turquoise. Her hair is worn in two corkscrew pigtails with bangs framing her face. She wears an indigo cape with a skull imprint on it and a long, dark dress with a significantly low-cut neckline exposing her well-endowed bust. Her clothing resembles that of an oiran, a high-class Japanese courtesan. She also wears a golden bone headdress.
The second half of the spirit is shorter and younger in appearance. She has turquoise eyes and chin length purple hair that is styled so that only her right eye is visible with a skull decorating it. She wears a dark top that covers her lower face, neck and arms, close-fitting shorts and knee length socks. Over this she wears a purple, hip-length coat fastened at the front by a dark purple sash. The middle of her chest and abdomen, as well as the top of her thighs, are left exposed.

Inner World:N/A
Sealed Zanpakutô :

Spoiler:
 

His Zanpakutō is unique in that it exists as two completely separate swords, existing as a daisho sword pair, consisting of a tachi and a wakizashi. Their cross guards are rectangles, with the corners cut off, decorated by a pattern of cherry petals and lines, and each sports a dark-blue handle. He keeps them sheathed through his waist tie at his left side; although, during battle, the swords have been shown to be placed on both sides of his sash. Like other Zanpakutō, Katen Kyōkotsu has a personality of her own. However, unlike other Zanpakutō, this personality shines through in battle and prevents Shunsui from fighting with his full powers until Katen Kyōkotsu is in the mood for it. Because of this, Shunsui does not like to "play" with "her".

Release: "Flower Wind Rage and Flower God Roar, Heavenly Wind Rage and Heavenly Demon Sneer" (花風紊れて花神啼き天風紊れて天魔嗤う, hana kaze midarete, kashin naki, tenpū midarete, tenma warau; Viz "When the Flower Wind Rages, the Flower God Roars, When the Wind of Heaven Rages, the God of the Underworld Sneers")

Shikai Description:

Spoiler:
 

Kyōraku sets the two blades against each other in a cross, and then pulls after uttering the poem-like command. When the flash clears, Katen Kyōkotsu has become a pair of huge, heavily-curved, black Chinese scimitars with silver edges. The hilt and tsuba of each are still the same as they were in Katen Kyōkotsu's sealed-form, but they now sport long red tassels dangling from the end. Despite the two swords becoming identical in this state, Shunsui has stated they still serve as one (the wakizashi) being used mainly for speed strikes, and the other (the tachi) being used mainly for power strikes. Hence that they still exist as a daisho sword pair, with the wakizashi being slightly smaller in size than the tachi.

Shikai Abilities:

The power of Katen Kyōkotsu is to "make children's games real". The Zanpakutō makes the rules and anyone who steps within the boundaries of its spiritual pressure is forced to play by those rules, including Shunsui himself. According to Shunsui, "if you win you live, if you lose you die".

Bushōgoma (不精独楽, Lazy Spinning Top): Shunsui rotates with both blades facing in opposite directions creating large wind blades that fire toward an opponent from Katen Kyōkotsu. The wind blades join together forming a spinning circle of wind that upon contact with a target envelops the target with tornado-like intensity. The attack is not only dangerous but can disorient an opponent trapped within it. The technique is powerful enough to counteract high-powered Cero blasts. The game this technique represents is a spinning top game.

Takaoni (嶄鬼, Mountain Demon): This move was also used in Shunsui's battle with Starrk, but Starrk's attack hid the nature of the attack. However, Shunsui later explains that with this "game" whoever is higher up "wins."

Kageoni (影鬼, Shadow Demon): The rule of this game is that whoever gets their shadow stepped on "loses." The game itself allows competitors to manipulate shadows to their advantage. For example, Shunsui has demonstrated the ability to hide himself in shadows by using this technique, and he can also control the shadows and use them to attack an opponent by attacking the shadow they are currently standing upon.

Irooni (艶鬼, Colorful Demon): This is a color-based game where you say the name of the color you want to cut with your sword and you cannot cut anything else. If the color that you call does not exist on your body, the damage is minimal, even if the attack would normally inflict a much more severe wound. The opposite is true; by calling out a color you're wearing and attacking, the damage given is proportional to the amount of that color on you. To maximize damage, you have to use a color that maximizes the risks to your person as well as your enemy's. For example, by wearing black robes and calling "black," one would inflict massive damage on an enemy if struck even if the actual blow itself was minimal or minor, but the caller would also suffer serious damage if he/she is struck by the enemy in return.


Bankai Description: Not yet revealed. Ukitake warned Shunsui not to release his Bankai "where others can see."

Roleplay Sample:

Deep within the bowels of Rukongai sat a small, unassuming sake house known as the Water Well. Unimpressive in almost every respect, the establishment had still enjoyed a prosperous trade for longer than almost anyone could remember. It was widely rumored that the Water Well predated even the Academy, and that the only thing in all of the Wandering Soul Town older than the building itself was its venerable owner, Choyo.

The secret to Old Choyo's success was hardly that and bordered on common knowledge, for the Water Well was the only building outside of Sereitei itself that boasted reiatsu shielding. No one knew how Choyo had managed to get the private room in the back fortified with demon-magic, but there was hardly a shinigami in a mood to party that didn't know about it. As such, that particular room was almost always booked way in advance with high-level - and necissarily wealthy - shinigami who wanted to get away from the staidness of Sereitei for a while. The wait list for a booking was at least a decade out and set in stone besides, Choyo being both adamantly protective of the scheduling and unabashedly charming when turning away disappointed would-be revelers.

With one single exception. Out of the entire roster of the Gotei, only Kyouraku Shunsui was in a position to call in a favor and get an immediate booking. It was a highly prestigious benefit of being older than dirt and known for spending more than a year's salary in a single night of drinking, and Shunsui took care not to bank on it too often.

Which is why he couldn't help but feel slightly miffed when his largesse went rather unappreciated.

"You're not drinking, Jyuu," Shunsui noted with chagrin and a loud slurp at his favorite silver choko. "Is something wrong?"

"It's too hot." Ukitake replied with a poorly-masked frown. Long, elegant fingers fiddled restlessly with a well-worn masu, disturbing the warm liquid it cradled.

Shunsui took another expert sip of sake. "Nonsense. It's going down juuuust fine." With a practiced motion, Kyouraku snagged up a fresh sake jug and had his cup full again almost before it was empty.

Jyuushirou shifted irritably. "That's because you're half-drunk already. How much did you have before you came and got me this afternoon? Honestly, we've only just arrived and you're already sloshed..." He trailed off, a faint wash of color adorning his cheeks.

"You're surprised that I started drinking early?" Shunsui arched an eyebrow in astonishment. "Are you feeling alright?"

"I'm fine." Ukitake grumped. As if to make a point, he swiftly downed his drink, grimacing slightly. "Gyah, what did you order?"

At that, Shunsui's curiosity shifted into affronted bewilderment. "Only the highest-quality Honjōzō-shu, what else would I order?" He flailed, rather like a bird with a broken wing. "Jyuu, what the hell has gotten under your haori?"

Jyuushirou rolled his eyes, eyebrows still pinched together as he held out his masu for a refill; Shunsui complied compulsorily. "Nothing, Shun. It's just..." A tiny sip, followed by a weaker grimace than before. "Don't you think this is rather inappropriate? There's a war about to come crashing down on us and we're out drinking. Is this really the best use of our time?"

Kyouraku had known Ukitake long enough to know that it was hardly this point that was really bothering him. As such, the best way to bring his issue to the forefront was to annoy the crap out of him. Shunsui slipped into his most irrepressible grin.

"We're facing combat and a high probability of death, destruction and mayhem – what better time to drink?" A wider grin, and a wink for good measure. "Unless, of course, one is feeling amorous and there is a lovely female in the vicinity..."

Subject Post 7PostSubject: Re: Shunsui Kyoraku, The Condense [APPROVED, 0-2+] [Absentee]   Tue Sep 18, 2012 3:04 am

The autumn winds blew through the Seireitei, a pink ladies kimono was caught in the wonderful winds caring those leaves. A man could could be seen laying on his back atop a building, only some of the pink could be seen. His hairpin wheels caught the wind as his pony tail blew backwards somewhat. What a peaceful time, thoughts were slim to none for the former Captain at the moment, he didn't truly care for things going on around here at the moment. Since Yama-jii passed away, Shunsui hadn't quite taken part in anything for that matter. Because he didn't truly care to be involved with things as they were now. Between his lips a plant that should be "relaxing" him seems to be working fairly well. Sleeping peacefully upon the roof of a building in the Seireitei. Bothering no one really as he looks upon the skies through his sakkat with his gray eyes. Nanao hadn't been around for a while, she probably went off to do something. On his right side his wakazashi and his katana rested. Both sheathed, the clouds above were nice and white. As he considered maybe grabbing a cup of sake, he noticed something had entered the area. A member of the stealth force delivering a message to him.

"Welcome, seems to me I have a visitor upon my humble rooftop. Would care to share a drink, or do you have some urgent business with me?" The man shook his head and started speaking, to Shunsui's disappointment it was a man. But that wasn't important, the man handed him a letter from Nanao. In her normal "delicate" way she was telling him to handle something. His beautiful and lovely Nanao, he missed her so. Shunsui got up, putting both his weapons in his obi sash and making sure each rested comfortably, first he would get a drink. Take it to the people that seemed to be causing problems and see if he could settle them with a friend drink. He wasn't to eager for needless killing or anything of that nature. "Well guess it's time to head out..This could be fun.." Shunsui said, but truthfully he wasn't looking forward to fighting if he had to. But he was only going out to investigate the matter. Shunsui vanished and moved on to the next location, it was time to move on.

His eyes of grey seemed to close now as he traveled a great distance, many didn’t know it but Shunsui was a fast man. Able to cover a great amount of ground in a short time, Yama-jii had credited him for it before. Arriving on the scene, he brought a hand up to keep his sakkat on. The pink woman’s kimono caught the breeze, the male’s hair caught the soft breeze as well. A smile formed slightly on his lips, he’d come out to deal with a matter from his era. No point letting the children of this generation worry over something from Yama-jii, Jyuushiro, and Unohana-chans time as Captains. They were just some people fighting against the tides of Soul Society. Nanao had said he’d be doing her a great favor by doing this, in so many words. He’d cash that in later, he itched his beard lightly. Noticing a kid had come to rush him, it wasn’t really impressive.


His grip on the sword was far to forced, Shunsui merely side stepped it. Though it looked like he vanished, taking his left hand’s index finger he hit the boy with a Kidō spell. This wasn’t much however, he sent the boy bouncing before talking now. . "I suggest you retreat, no point in losing your life for a cause like this. Life’s short, have fun and enjoy yourself. No need to be unreasonable about this cause, surely something like this isn't worth risking your life over. But if your so devoted to this trying to talk you out of it any further would be rude..I wish it had turned out differently, but I will have to kill you if that's the answer.” The boy responded after bouncing across the ground as though he’d been a pebble sent skipping across the earth. This wasn’t exactly how he planned to spend his day, he began thinking about a nice cup of sake. One under the sakura tree’s would be a fantastic way to end this evening. The boy seemed to be withdrawing; he didn’t pay it all too much thought. The note from Nanao said more than one was here, but he didn’t detect anything. It seemed they’d retreated and well that was a bit of a problem for him, he didn’t quite know what to do next. So he decided, to head back. Using a shunpo the male faded heading to the location of his old Division where the cherry blossom tree was.

He could wander around pretty freely, he put his hands together as he walked. His pink flower kimono flowing behind him as, he hands were crossed over his chest. Keeping them warm within the kimono’s sleeves, it wasn’t cold or anything of that nature. Shunsui didn’t see any sake or such, but got to stare at the beauty of the sakura tree. It was a lovely sight to behold, as much as Lisa-chan or Nanao-chan. Shunsui could of killed the boy without any trouble at all. But he didn’t much care for needless killing or violence. He held a hand out to a lovely maiden that brought him a cup of sake, this was the way for his day to come to an end. Sunset under the beautiful sakura tree he spent many a year. An autumn that he would treasure for a lifetime, the boy would someday maybe change his ways and maybe even if information was right. He didn’t seem evil, more of the reason Shunsui didn’t administer a final blow.

Since I didn't know if the RP sample was good enough, but a few other staff (namely Ravana) thought it was.
Ye' have Kyoraku.

DARNGIT MANS. Why do you do this when I am at school or asleep without a chance to say something and was working on a perfectly legit sample? And in addition, when he first became open I asked to be listed as a possible adoptee, and I would at least like to be considered since I already wrote out a good portion of this sample.

Zzzzzz…

Snoozing his time away, snoooooze. However, this was the average life of the one known as Kyoraku Shunsui, recent addition to squad 8, currently being considered for his chair. However, for the time being, he was being sent on his approval examination. Despite his noble birth, he had always shown a certain penchance for laziness; as he was showing right now. In fact, it was a surprise and a dissapointment to himself that he didn't have any alcohol on him; normally he wasn't so lazy as to forget that… but it seemed that today, he had been lucky to even remember his tunic, even if he had forgotten the belt that kept it from being an actual cloak.

Well, not that he often used the belt anyway; but this time his not wearing of it had been accidental. He wasn't too fond of the normal shinigami garb, and wished that he could have something more.. .stylish, something elegant and outgoing… maybe… flowers… although he knew that while it was all well and good to fantasize about such things, there was a good chance he would be in these drab black garbs for a long, long time.

But still, a man can dream, as this dozing shinigami was.

One of his eyes opened slightly, blinking as he looked out. The sun above his head was beginning to go into evening… ….Wait. He blinked, as he forced himself to stop laying on this large branch up in this tree he had found, sitting up straight as he put a hand on his head, feeling his short, straight hair. ...Why didn't they wake me up yet? He wondered, remembering how he had observed that the sun had been about to reach directly above his head when he had dozed off. His three companions, a seated officer and two other unassigned members, had gone on ahead to investigate something, leaving Shunsui at base camp. Shunsui's eyes narrowed; they had informed him that they were going to be right back, and he had promptly went to take a nap in their rendevous tree. But they had not yet returned. This worried the young shinigami; one of their group had been a seated officer, and they were still not back.

...This is not good. He concluded, as he forced himself to stand up straight. He moved his hand from his head to his back, wincing as he felt how taut his muscles had become. He closed his eyes as he moved both hands behind his back, leaning forwards until it gave a mighty snap. He placed both hands on either hip, yawning as he stretched himself out, before turning his head to face where his companions had gone, before leaping off the branch after them.

"Guys? Oi, anyone there!"

He called out as he darted amongst the trees, his eyes scanning all over. His posture was relaxed, but his mind was going a mile a minute. Where could they be… they most likely have been attacked… I need to be on my guard… I hope they're not dead… His jaw tightened slightly, the only physical sign of his worried and slightly stressed state…

His eyes caught a flash of red, as he stopped, landing on a tree branch and gripping the trunk of the tree as he looked down below, seeing blood. His eyes widened as he realized that it was the seated officer, along with the two other students.. But two of them had gone under horrendous wounds, while the third, while mostly unharmed, was still covered in tiny wounds.

He thought about leaping off the branch, but decided to get their attention first by means of breaking off a nearby stick and throwing it near them. That got their attention and they looked up at them. The officer's head was nearly split open from his wound, while the unassigned had a gigantic gash across his entire chest. The unharmed girl made a signal to Kyoraku, and he nodded as he compressed his spiritual pressure, before leaping down. ...Good thing I didn't just leap right in… He thought to himself, with some satisfaction.

"What happened?" He asked, a look of worry crossing his young face as he looked over the two downed, but alive, men. "We… were attacked by not one, but a pair of Adjuchas…" The girl said in reply as she finished tying cloth around the unassigned officer's chest. The seated shinigami's eyes wandered and found Shunsui as Shunsui slowly made his way towards the older man. "… Take the boy and get her out of here, Kyoraku. That's an order." He said, as Kyoraku's eyes narrowed slighlty. "I'm not just going to leave you here to die, sir…" He replied calmly, his gaze wandering over everyone gathered as he thought.

"That was an order."

"I realize, sir. But I was taught that one should find their own path, and leaving you here isn't an option I'm going to take…" Shunsui said in reply, his eyes narrowing as he looked over his shoulder, his eyes narrowing as he pointed a finger at a nearby branch. "Hadō Number One. Sho." He pronounced as the most simple of all attack Kidō left his finger, slamming into the branch as it rustled… and out fell a pair of almost human-like hollows.

However, it was easily discernable that they were rather not. They were green, much like the forest they hunted in; Shunsui could see that this is most likely what gave them camoflauge and allowed them to assault his comrades so easily. He speculated that in all likelihood, they had committed a surprise attack against the squad, each one dealing a terrible blow to the men of the squad and peppering the girl as she retreated… hoping that she would lead them to more prey. "Not bad, not bad. You're both very experienced hunters." Shunsui said evenly, even as the hollows began watching him warily. They weren't sure how a normal shinigami could be so observant as to discern their hiding spot as they prepared to kill the group, and now they were wary of him.


Shunsui's hands brought up both of his blades, the two, one shorter and one longer, pointing evenly at the two enemies as evenly as two things of different length could.

Uh yeah, no. You've had since Thursday to do an RP sample for him. Crow posted his up first and with a big gap between him posting it up and the approval.
