Jordan MichiganCharacter True Age:
2,012Character Appearance Age:
Jordan has two sides to his/herself, depending on which gender she is in.
The Male Jordan is quite brave, willing to do whatever it takes to succeed in his goals. He will dive in front of a flying bullet to save his comrades, refuse to give information despite any physical pain he may be put under, he will act as strong as he possibly can. He is a very strong individual mentally as well, being able to go under much mental pressure before reaching any kind of breaking point. And even when he reaches that breaking point, he still will begin to shut himself out of his own mind to prevent snapping or to be mentally defeated.
He is very confident, believing in his goal and pursuing it to the end of his days. There is little to nothing that can truly damper his spirits, as he is very encouraging and supportive because he has confidence in those he trusts. He never looks on the bad side, always seeing the best possible result as the one that is the most likely one. Even when things look glum, he will stay positive, which can be a great asset, allowing him to see through situations that may drag others into the dark abyss from.
He is very respectful of his superiors, following their orders to the last. If he believes there may be a better course of action, he will speak calmly and with a quiet authority, one that doesn’t sound threatening and is also logical. This also extends to women and children, the former of which he will only fight if he sees it is as done in honorable battle. This respectfulness extends to his opponents as well, giving them any honor they are due in combat, only killing them if they truly desire to die, or if he has no other choice. He is neutral about inflicting pain, neither enjoying or despising it.
He doesn’t involve many emotions against persons that he should have personal dislike against; he simply does his job. If you are an enemy, he will defeat you soundly, with little words. If you personally try to taunt and insult him, he will simply laugh like you have made a good joke and get back into battle. It takes A LOT to get any kind of negative emotion out of him, and if you truly bring him to that snapping point… there is no hope for redemption, in any way, and he will truly shoot to kill.
Unlike her male form, the female form of Jordan is quite uncertain about the situations around her, preferring to depend on others to do such a thing. As such, she is more of a follower than a leader. As such, it is almost impossible for her to make a decision.
Despite her uncertainty about several things, she is quite friendly, helping anyone who asks for help. Most people feel comfortable in her presence due to this trait, as she radiates an air of calmness, but is animate as well, more than just being a doll; she can do things when she needs to, and can at least direct herself when she needs to.
She reacts very badly to pressure. Someone attacking her or making her feel bad mentally will result in her curling back up in on herself to feel better. She can’t bring herself to truly dislike anyone she meets; no matter what they do to her. As such, whenever someone mentally or physically attacks her, it looks very much like an act done out of pure evil, as she will refuse to fight back, only trying to run or yell at them to stop.
If you press female Jordan into too much stress, she will snap, turning aggressive. When this happens, she will begin to fight like a desperate animal, dead serious and doing absolutely ANYTHING to escape the stress, no matter what. It is impossible to talk or to reason for her after this has happened, until after she has determined that she is safe from harm once more.
(Jordan will need a male and female will sheet, if at all possible.)
During life, Jordan was always the shy girl that everyone would pick on. Due to her parents abandoning her as an infant, she never had really anyone to get close to or help her. Her boss, her teachers, her coworkers, her classmates… she went along every day, taking the brunt of it all, never really happy, just trudging along in her everyday life. However, she never snapped, simply taking the cold sarcasm and snide jokes made in her presence at her side, trying to ignore them. She very rarely cried, and always looked like she was just about to break out crying. She never had many friends, as most considered her too shy to get close too, or were afraid of being ridiculed by their peers from being near her. When she was crossing the road one night after he daily trudge home from work, at age 22, a drunken driver who had been at the bar far too long didn’t see her, accidently running her over with his horse on the trail, killing the poor girl in an instant…
There was barely a funeral service; attended by none but a priest, who, when he saw the lack of audience, simply told the burial service to put her dead body to rest. So, the poor tortured soul was put into the ground, truly without anything…
It was no surprise when the tortured soul became a hollow. However, what WAS a surprise… the hollow was shunned, even by its own kind, never going into Hueco mundo, always staying in the human world. It was very simple, as it did not want any other souls existing with it, going unnoticed from the soul society. However… it soon began to realize its special property. As a hollow, it only had one ability. It could take the positive social feeling, like how you feel after you go out with a group of friends or to a party, and consume that energy from the soul into itself from being near it, using it in place of actual souls to grow and evolve. It got to the point she became an Adjuchas, not from ingested souls, but from absorbed social feeling. And then… it happened. She finally became mad from the loneliness, and at last, her mind became unable to take the stress anymore, even though her hollow form couldn’t understand it. She ripped off her mask, tearing it off her face, wanting to finally end it all in one cruel, violent act.
However… something of a different effect occurred. Her soul began to change, as she felt another presence entering her mind, one that was friendly, that didn’t hurt her, one that made her feel positive and comfortable with who she was. He encouraged her in her new form, even going so far as to take over her humanoid body, making it into his own form, protecting her and defending her as he began to roam around the Earth. He learned of other ways to gain the reiatsu they needed to survive, as they had lost the ability to consume social feeling, continuing to grow in strength. He/she found out the many skills of an arrancar through their own experimentation and instinct. And then… it began looking what it could do in the world.
It outright ignored the Espada and the arrancar of Hueco Mundo; he/she wanted nothing to do with that level of destruction and cruelty. It knew the Soul Society would also want nothing to do with them, the same thing occurring for the humans. They didn’t try going to the Vizard Corps due to the fact that they are pure vizards; no other races are within them. And that… is how they finally came across the Sugiura. RP Sample:
Male Form:Bone Appearance:
Just above Jordan’s right eye there is his/her mask fragment.Hollow Hole:
On the right side of his/her stomach, about 3 inches above the waist, 3 inches wide.reiatsu Colour:
A flowing mixture of orange and blue.
SEALED STATESealed Zanpakutô:
Jordan’s sword is a katana. The hilt is 4 inches in length, one and a fourth inches in width. It is blue in color, with a spiraling diamond pattern that flows down from all angles, connected one next to the other. They are outlined by orange thread. The hilt of the blade has a faint outline on the blue that resembles an orange butterfly. It should be noted that there is no hand-guard of any sort, simply the blade leaving the hilt.
The Blade itself reaches out to three feet in length, completely straight from where it leaves the hilt to the tip. It curves off slightly on the tip, decreasing the width from the cutting side of the blade once it gets within 3 inches of the edge, ending in a very small point, razor-sharp along the swords entire length.Racial Abilities:
Cero (虚閃 (セロ), sero; Spanish for "Zero," Japanese for "Hollow Flash," "Doom Blast" in the Viz translation) are high-powered energy blasts that can be fired from various body parts, such as mouth, tongue, hand or fingers. Only Gillians, Adjuchas, Arrancar, and the Vizard have so far been shown to use Cero attacks, and it appears that stronger entities can use it more efficiently. Various Arrancar and Hollow characters display variants of the technique, such as the Espada-exclusive Gran Rey Cero, the Cero Oscuras that Ulquiorra Cifer can use only in his released form, as well as the Cero Sincrético performed by Pesche Guatiche and Dondochakka Birstanne. It should be noted that Jordan’s cero are alternating energy spirals of orange and blue when they are fired.
Garganta (黒腔 (ガルガンタ), garuganta; Spanish for "Throat," Japanese for "Black Cavity") is how Arrancar and Menos-class Hollows move to and from Hueco Mundo. Kaname Tōsen, Kisuke Urahara and Mayuri Kurotsuchi have also demonstrated the ability to use the technique. It literally tears open the dimensional fabric separating the worlds, revealing a tunnel of whirling, torrential energy that must be focused and solidified to create a discernible pathway.
Hierro (鋼皮 (イエロ), iero; Spanish for "Iron," Japanese for "Steel Skin") refers to the hardened skin of the Arrancar, which is a result of their compressed spiritual power. While their skin is strong enough to block even released Zanpakutō bare-handed, it is by no means impenetrable. Stronger Arrancar generally have proportionally stronger skin than usual.
Pesquisa (探査回路 (ペスキサ), pesukisa; Spanish for "Inquiry," Japanese for "Probe Circuit") is the Arrancar equivalent of the Shinigami ability to sense Spiritual Pressure. It functions very similarly to sonar.
Sonído (響転 (ソニード), sonīdo; Spanish for "Sound," Japanese for "Sound Ceremony") is the Arrancar equivalent of the Shinigami Flash Steps and the Quincy Hirenkyaku; it allows the user to travel at incredibly high speeds for short distances. Use of Sonído is punctuated by a brief static sound, in contrast to the "swish" sound caused by Flash Steps.Unique Abilities:Caos Desconocido (Spanish for Unknown Chaos):
The most active of Jordan’s abilities, this is something similar to the soul separation demonstrated by Coyote Starrk and Lilynette Gingerback. However, the power of Jordan did not split into two bodies, it split into two personalities within the mind, as a way of defense, due to Jordan’s weak nature in her female form. As such, Male Jordan keeps this ability constantly active, being the dominant in the body. He gives it over to Female Jordan when she truly desires to be in her body, or when he feels it necessary. Typically, he will only lower this when he is around someone that he trusts, and most people are unaware that Jordan is indeed female, as he/she nearly always has this ability active. He will always fight with this active as well, as it takes 1% of his running energy to keep active. When it is turned off or on, the body he is in changes slightly, orange and blue reiatsu making a small field around him/her for in instant as he/her changes. The two forms are exactly the same in strength and skill, as they cohabitate the body.Daring Swordsman:
Jordan is a gifted swordsman, well versed in the ways of combat. He/she is an expert swordsman, being able to do equal battle against masters.Vast Energy:
Jordan has a very large expanse of energy with he/her, being able to perform the same technique as Coyote Starrk of firing off cero and bala without so much as moving, as well as from different points on the body. However, he/her can only fire it from up to two points on his/her body. Skilled Sonido:
Jordan is very skilled in sonido as well, using his/her vast amounts of energy to be able to go several times in a row of using sonido to confuse/keep up with an opponent in battle. He/she is not truly meant to be a master, but he/she is still quite adept in it, being a level below master.Tough Hierro:
As he/she has a large amount of energy, his/her Hierro is quite tough as well, able to take a good amount of force before breaking.
Me y Mismo (Me and Myself.)Resereccion Release Phrase:
Comprendar, Me y Mismo! (Understand, Me and Myself!)Release Actions:
Jordan turns around his zanpaktou, turning it so that it is facing outwards, the tip pointed at himself, holding the hilt between his middle and ring fingers. He curls up all his/her fingers, bringing the sword right in front of his/her face, almost touching it, and then stretching the hand back fully, throwing back the sword but holding it still in the fingers. As it quickly goes backwards, it changes, assuming its new shape.Resereccion Appearance:
Jordan’s resereccion is both humanoid and yet non-humanoid, being similar to something in-between. The sword transforms itself into a yo-yo, 3 inches in diameter. The yo-yo itself is blue in color, the edges razor sharp, looking like two small Frisbees placed on top of one another, a centimeter of separation between them. The cord that holds it up is bright orange in color, always standing out on any background. The cord is very much like the edge of the yo-yo, razor sharp as well. An exact copy of this yo-yo appears in Jordan’s other hand, grasped firmly. The length of the cord is determined by Jordan, as the orange rings around his/her middle finger are able to channel reiatsu that extend the cord’s length.
Jordan’s ears extend upwards from his head, ending in points, white in color. The mask piece above his/her eye extends outwards off the side of his/her face, also ending in a point. Over the left eye, the eyebrow turns white as well, curling down on the side of his/her face as it goes around the outside of the eye, curving in on the inside of the cheek and ending on the bottom of the nose. A small sheathe appears on his/her back, similar to the sheathe of the sealed form of Tia Harribel. However, this sheathe is empty, except when Jordan puts away the yo-yos into it. It is open-ended on both ends.
His/her clothes als change, becoming a flowing blue tunic that extends from neck to feet, with an orange shirt-like vest that allows the center of his neck down to be shown, going down to just above his/her stomach, allowing his/her hollow hole to be shown, and orange shorts that go down past his/her knees. He/she wears a pair of blue boots that go up past his/her ankles.Resereccion Abilities:Cutting Yo-Yos:
The yo-yos try to cut what they come into contact with like they have a sword edge, meaning when they are spun onto an enemy, it is similar to dropping a spinning blade on a string when it hits. They can even be sharpened, by being drawn in by Jordan and spun on his/her hands, acting like a whetting stone to further increase their sharpness.Balo-balo:
The yo-yos channel reiatsu, being able to shoot out several bala out in circles as they fly, slamming into and exploding onto anything they hit. These can be made quite troublesome, as it means that Jordan can attack with bala from several angles at once.Cero-Cero:
By spinning the yo-yo and gathering energy from the air, Jordan can convert it into usable energy, able to fire off cero from the yo-yo. Unlike the Balo-Balo, the yo-yo can only fire one cero at a time, and the direction is determined by Jordan, as the energy pours out from all over the yo-yo and into the direction it is intended to go in. The more the yo-yo spins before releasing the energy, the more damage and larger the blast it can create. Sonido-do:
The yo-yo can perform something very similar to sonido, which is simply Jordan using his/her extreme mastery of the yo-yos to use sonido-like speed to teleport them around the opponent. He/she can even make after images of the yo-yo, making it seem like there are up to 20 yo-yo all around the opponent, able to fire, attack, slice, etc.Blade Conversion:
Jordan draws back both of his/her yo-yos, holding them in his/her hands as he puts his hands back, inserting them into the sheathe on his/her back. The energy is absorbed into the sheathe on both ends, producing hilts of the same design as Jordan’s sealed zanpaktou. However, when Jordan pulls them out, they are revealed as an orange and blue swords made of energy, very similar in property to the rieryoku swords.Dual Blades:
In this form, Jordan can use the swords from the yo-yos in battle, wielding them quite well, as well as he/she does with a single sword in sealed state. Master Yo-yoer:
Due to the nature of Jordan’s Resereccion, he/she is a MASTER at using yo-yos, able to spin them in just about any way imaginable, doing any kind of trick he/she could possibly think of against the opponent or just while thinking. The yo-yos are constantly in motion, and a simple “walk the dog” for Jordan would be the same as a sidewalk suddenly having a deep slash running all the way through it. Massive Reiatsu:
Jordan’s already fairly impressive amount of reiatsu increases further in this form, to a quite impressive state, able to fire off cero and bala with ease.Improved Hierro:
Also a result of the energy increase of this transformation, his/her Hierro becomes more difficult to cut as well, taking a good bit of energy to penetrate.Enhanced Sonido:
Jordan becomes faster in this form as well, as yo-yos themselves are in constant motion, constantly building momentum, the source of their ability to move or damage their opponents. Master Sensory:
If Jordan was to close his/her eyes, he would still be able to find his opponent, even in the dark, being able to both sense their reiatsu and the air as it moves around him/herself. This is a result from the large amount of skill required to manipulate the yo-yos so easily, and being able to find his/her targets.
