B A S I C I N F O R M A T I O N Rook is considered well rounded when it comes to the proportions of his
physical size. Athletic and well toned, he has a slightly above average build. Always standing with proper posture; his chest and shoulders are noticeably wide, but not as far to say he is anatomically incorrect. Strong arms are represented by powerful muscular definition a quality which also extends towards his legs.Rook'svoice is deep and some even go as far to say soothing. He is very well spoken for his age. As commanding as his voice is, other noises he's capable of such as loud screams or laughter are even more demanding of attention.
His skin is naturally tan; his hair is dark, short and buzz cut styled. A square and potent jaw line assists in framing his face. His soft yet powerful hazel gaze reveals an unparalleled determination. Face hair is grown in occasionally in the form of a goatee or just a light five o'clock shadow

Personality:A caring person who believes firmly in his ideals, he is a product of his environment. Willing to go even as far as brawling in attempts to conquer any obstacle before him. However, he does prefer to avoid the scenario. When irritated sufficiently, he becomes tremendously threatening. When upset, Rook's menacing deep set voice and eyes are more than enough to frighten the cowardly.
He places the most effort into activities he partakes in. The major ones being Fighting Hollows and working as a Manager for one of the Biggest corps in Karakura Central.With a strong sense of justice; he can't stand to watch the
helpless being taken advantage of. Combine his competitive fervor, it tends to get him into trouble as he aims to be the best at whatever he engages in. Including conflict. Otherwise his laid back nature gets him both hate and love from the many people around him, as they wish for that level of motivation in other more important situations.
Though he may be indecisive when it comes to choosing the little things in life, it is made clear that when fighting hollows and making peace between two waring factions, his moves are as masterful as a chess player. All of his actions tend to be fast, require precision, and are roughly always dynamic in nature. Fortunately he is a quick learner, able to apply some skills or explain them even in the heat of the moment; if he understands it.
Not exactly the smartest person in the world, he was always a fan of science. Specifically physics, having grown so accustomed to trying to break the laws to perform stunts with his body. However, he understands the importance of intelligence.

Rook,a name engraved into many parts of the concrete jungle and in the hearts of those who lived life in the slums.Typically,Rook was known to be the head of a small Gang he called the Black Chest Pieces associated with their leader's name and the fact that each criminal stunt was pulled off in such a way that it had baffled many detectives as to how co-ordinate and precise a small group of "Hoodlums" were proven to be.
It was always in the commissioners best interest to nip this small time gang in the bud seeing as they could pose a serious threat if they continued to expand.But be that as it may the police were always thwarted time and time again.Making a complete mockery of ever single Police H.Q around.Rook knew that this had drawn too much attention to his small time gang and efforts to expand has been fruitless seeing as not everyone's cut out to join.Time was running out and within days more and more police officers would join in favor of his captivity.
Rook had one idea, a plan he himself noted as "deranged" but he simply had no choice.It was a bank robbery,nothing special about it.The men were armed to the teeth and how they were able to land their hands on such weaponry was never known.It was then the Commissioner sent out his SWAT forces to handle the situation before it had escalated.In doing so he had nothing more on his mind than that the Chess Pieces were becoming sloppy and indeed it aroused some suspicion. He then advised all units to stay alert as there may be more planned than just some random bank robbery and the Commissioner could not have been anymore precise.
Meanwhile in the city central a large building had exploded which before had a large clock on it that ticked almost a qauter pass 9 Before BOOM.This had caused mass Hysteria and Panic that soon lead all forces to take control of the screaming crowd before it too became a larger issue.This explosion itself triggered the nearby buildings in the central to explode into an unusual pattern only visible by air. And so news helicopters were all over the occurrence causing more of a nuisance for the Commissioner who wasn't prepared for anything like this and even on such a high scale.This entire ordeal caused The commissioner to quake in awe as the small time group that may have posed a threat was already Demolishing his city as an example of their raw power.It then occurred to him that he didn't nip it as early as he had wished now seeing that they had already made connections with even larger gangs and he knows now that there is nothing more he can do.
With all this panic about he had no choice but to divert his SWAT forces in handling the situation going on in the City Central and indeed left a bitter taste in his mouth now knowing he wont ever be able to stop the gang he sworn would never reach this point.Not many were harmed that night and with Rook's men now successful they celebrated with their new found alliance with an international Gang.This Gang however were impressed with how Rook was able to cripple the city forces while also earning some quick cash and had offered they take a seat amongst their finer members.Rook had thought about but he refused, saying that his gang was nothing like a well dress Mafia and what they do were in honor of their suffering communities.This had shocked them very and at once Rook was shot on the spot after turning his back towards the gentlemen who were dressed finely.
With a last breath he smirked, "Think this is it? . . .Oh you just fucked up and lost your chance. . . . We'll be seeing each other much,much soon." and so his body went cold, unaware of the damages they made, they now relaised that within the next few months their operations were leaked onto the presses,the organization crashing down and the Chest Pieces no where to be found possibly their bosses plan to end the group without sending anyone to jail.Truly he was remembered and now he moves on to the Soul Society leaving a legacy and finishing his deals with the devil having cheated himself out of the bet.
As of now Rook is now a reformed man, an ordinary shinigami who keeps recalling such of his own actions and plans to in-corporate the same in his new endeavors.
Zanpakutô Spirit Name:Deadman
Deadman, or what he calls himself,is the Zanpakutō spirit of Rook.He is said to have once been death, though he could be referring to some title as a glorified warrior.Rook wasn't able to establish contact with him, but up until recently, where he was pushed to the brink of death the two had finally made a connection.
Inner World: N/A
Sealed Zanpakutô Apperance :
It isn't aware as to why his Zanpakutō would take such a form and as such it is barely used in battle.Rook has been mocked by the fact his Zanpakutō,in it's sealed form, is a broken blade and proven to be utterly useless in confrontation. Sealed Zanpakutô Abilities: N/A
His shikai takes the form of a pair of gloves commonly used in boxing.This form is believed to be taken from his past, remembering the rush and excitement of boxing with his father when he was young.The gloves themselves seem to be made of some sort of fiber imbued with his own reitsu where they expand and strengthen upon his will.The abilities expressed seem to show off Rook's offensive prowess and his ability to manipulate reitsu to suit his hand to hand combatant style.
Rook has the ability to tamper with the natural force of gravity.Increasing it's pressure ten fold and vice-verso.The attack begins when Rook reaches a certain level of concentration and his.
This passive ability allows Rook's reiatsu to shroud his body and harden his skin to make it as tough as armor.This allows him to take 75% of all damage, though the percentage differs if he faces a weaker or stronger tier(Meaning the percentage rises by 15% in the difference of his opponent's tier and vice versa if his opponent's tier is higher).It requires focus as well as stamina and reiatsu to maintain,so it lasts for 3 posts and cools down for at least 5.

It was a quiet night,leaning into the late hours while at the same, the sprawling city known as Karakura Central still bustled about with flashing lights and honking cars, just as well as people chatting on cell phones and bumping into one another as they walked together so huddled closely.Standing on a roof top clinching his fist he looked outwards.His gaze fixed on anything that moves,blinks or breathes.He wore what appeared to be a usual business suit fit for an employee of some sort of company and it was strange to find such a man standing on a rather high building.
Over to his left was an old building project that had ceased development possibly due to the lack of funds and was just known as a hang out to a bunch of kids to play around during their free time.Over to his right was the entrance to a cemetery.A place often visited by those who had loved ones perish in the war against Ender or of natural causes.They were only a few ghost but each had preferred staying amongst the living possibly to correct their own mistakes in their former life.It was through that time that everything seemed to be at peace and one could think nothing would ever occur on such a regular night but this would be proven wrong.
A sudden yet chilling wind blew past Rook which followed with the sound of a piece of metal falling and hitting an object to make a soft clang that would be overlooked by regular human but not this shinigami.A dark,grayish aura began emit from his being a trick he once took up to purposely leak his reiatsu to draw in nearby targets.This idea worked as Two glowing red eyes shot out from the depths of the abandon building project and at first took the appearance of a dark black blob the pounced about eagerly.With its position now exposed it wasted no time in attacking the man who had seemed vulnerable but with a sudden turn within the remaining seconds he had before being pounced upon a foot came swinging around out of no where and smashed into the head of the creature breaking what appeared to be pieces of it's teeth and colorful shards that fell off it's mask.With a loud roar the creature had turned its back to escape but found itself unable to move as someone's hand grabbed what appeared to be it's tail and threw the thing using both arms of course .and sent into crashing into a tree where he then leap from the building and and came crashing down with both legs smashing into the abdomen of the monster.The creature now paralyzed by pain only began squirming and bleeding from the mouth of its mask and then silenced by the sound of metal cutting through bare flesh,the creature disappearing and the man stood their cracking a bit of a smile as the corner of his left lipped curved upward,content in his newest achievement.
S K I L L S H E E T
Rook has no actuall skills pertaining to his Shinigami powers.However, what has been evident would be his Overall massive physical strength which he uses to make up for his inability to cast a correct Kidō spell or fight on par with a blade.
Rook is skilled in some ways of physical hand to hand combat knowing but the fundamentals of Kick boxing and grappling.He learned just only a few from his father who was a former boxer at the time.His skills are still not as advanced as regular shinigamis but each punch delivered releases enough force to knock out the toughest of his opponents.
At first, Rook was never skilled in this field of power, but over the course of training, he has learn some basics and proceeds to surpass his original speed in adapting new methods towards his movement.
Though he hasn't learned any Kidō spells, he manages to show some control over his reiatsu after utilizing it to some extent in his shikai. Though at the time he was pushed to his limits and it is uncertain if he could replicate the same results.
