Basically, to sum it up, Ziamichi's are pretty much host with Animal Hollow's, Dark Personality's, Demonic, Angelic or any other entity within them that gives them great power that is not a hollow or Zanpukto Spirit. (I.E. People Inner Demons or Inner Angels, Dark Personality's or Light Personality's that give them power and etc)
Each Animal Hollow demon, angel or whatever is inside the host's body appears to interact with their host in unique ways, and grant their host power in different amounts.
Ziamichi's can effect peoples bodies, powers and minds in so many different ways. For example, once a strong enough demonic force enters the body of a shinigami it can either battle the Zanpukto Spirit already within the host and kill it, stealing it's power and causing the Shinigami to form a new Zanpukto Spirit and Bankai/Shikai with similar traits as the beast within them; Or it can end up causing them to lose Bankai/Shikai all together, depending on their luck. Another scenario that could happen is that the entity inside the shinigami could end up working together with the Zanpukto Spirit, unifying their powers and making the host even stronger. (The combination of the host Shinigami Powers and Ziamichi powers usually happens with Good Ziamichi's. Although it can be forced through special training, unique seals and other means like Shadin did with his Kijunsei Form.)
As for Quincy's, when a Ziamichi enters their body it can either give their Bow an immense power upgrade or it can destroy their quincy powers all together. Not many Quincy's have Ziamichi's, so it's unknown what type of wide range effects it could have on that Quincy. More research data is needed. Occasionally in humans demonic and evil Ziamichi's can moderately to severely shorten their life-span if it not controlled or tamed by a certain age due to all the stress on their body. That's why it's import for humans to gain a control level of 6-10 so that their body will not suffer anymore damage.
Although the opposite can be said for Pure Hearted Ziamichis. Sometimes they can actually increase the host life span by decades or even century's. In other cases as well sometimes Evil and Demonic Ziamichi's will completely want to take control of the host body if not properly sealed. In this scenario they will often drag the host into their inner soul and challenge them to battle of dominance. If the Ziamichi wins, the host will be the one sealed within the Ziamichi, die or be thrown into nothingness. And, if the Host wins they will gain more control of their beast and become even more powerful. But, their have been rare cases in where the host has killed the Ziamichi and completely removed the Ziamichi from it's body. When this happens they will gain all control over it's powers without any of the drawbacks. (I.E. When Radioactive killed his Experimental Ziamichi and obtained his Bankai once again.)
In any case, their are thousands of effects that could happen once somebody has Ziamichi sealed inside their body. So start using your imagination now that you know a little more about these types of characters.
THE ROAD TO BECOMING A ZIAMICHI
HOW TO BECOME A ZIAMICHISummary:
The Ziamichi are a very special race of people that have some type sealed spirits or entity contained within their body. They often display very extraordinary powers, and in some cases can be even more powerful than their spirits, due to the fact they have can possibly have a dual skill; using their own powers in a combination with their spirit. This very similar to how Shinigami attain their powers because they rely on a similar system that needs both the host and the spirit to be in sync. Some have even speculated that Shinigami can possibly be Ziamichi as well on a different level. However, Vizard's are more alike to Ziamichi then any race.
Transforming into a Ziamichi, though, is a very unique experience that it's not even possible to narrow down all the way's a person can become one. The most typical method of becoming a Ziamichi is usually sealing through magic or spells, absorbing a spirit to make their power your own, creating a spirit within your mind, becoming infected by a radical new virus and many other various ways that will be shown below in the following. Sealing:
More often then not, this will be the typical way of becoming a Ziamichi. It has been used hundreds, if not, thousands of time to contain another spirit within a body. Once sealed within, if the spirit is an aggressive type they will typically fight over control of the host's body. However, there have also been cases of spirits granting full control over their powers to the host if either; enough trust is gained between them, the spirit simply does not care or the host defeats the spirit in an inner conflict.Released State:
If a Ziamichi somehow loses the fight with their inner spirit, it is possible for them to take FULL control over their body and in some cases make the host their spirit. From there, the spirit can possibly take control of their powers, suck the life force from the host and kill it or simply leave it alone. In more rare circumstances, there have even been the creation of entirely new spirits through this process.Absorbing/Uniting/Fusion:
This is a less common way to become a Ziamichi, but typically has a higher chance of succeeding. If a person is able to absorb a spirit into their inner being, unite with another soul or fuse each of their bodies together; they have the chance of becoming a powerful Ziamichi with Dual Skill. However, with this method of becoming a Ziamichi, there is also a chance of each soul being destroyed and creating a new, destructive soul in their place created from the destruction of each person. So tread with caution through this process.Inner Creation:
It is very possible for a person to create their own Ziamichi within the confines of their own mind. This is a somewhat rare occurrance, but if there is enough pain, want and energy at end, it is conceivable for a host to form their very own spirit within their body. Typically, these type of Ziamichi are brought about through some type of trauma in their life. Though, others have created their own spirits simply for want of power. More often then not, these are alter-ego type spirits can either lead the Ziamichi down the path of dual skill, or attempt to corrupt their body and become their own person.Infection:
With the rampant occurrence of Demon's making their presence known on Earth, there has been a virus on the rampage outside of the protected cities. It starts by some type of Demon Blood entering a person's body through the air, through a wound or even in the food they eat in rare cases. From there, the virus begins to take hold of the person's body and cause them moderate amounts of pain until a demonic spirit is born within the host. At that point, they'll need to fight for their life in order to control this spirit, or risk becoming controlled by it. This is a radical new way of Ziamichi being born at an alarming rate.Soul Break:
As stated before in some of the methods above, it is possible for each of the souls to shatter and create an entirely new being. This method is typically Soul Break and this is a very dangerous Ziamichi. Depending on the circumstance, a Ziamichi formed from Soul Break can possibly have control of the original host's power, the spirit's power and even have a chance of creating their own powers from these two. As such, this type of Ziamichi has the very real possibility of becoming a Triple Skill user. Chain Of Fate:
This isn't an unheard method, but certainly is surprising. In some cases, it's possible for a Ziamichi to be born when a human has the Chain of Fate attached to their body. Typically, a Demon will this as weak pray, attempt to capture it and from there it will be up to the person to fight it off with will power. If they succeed, it's possible for them to return the host to a physical body and grant them new life and power. If it fails, however, this is simply another process of them becoming a demon.Cloning:
A truly bizarre method of becoming a Ziamichi, but if a person were to make a clone of themselves and seal it inside of their body somehow, they could very well become a Ziamichi. This type of method has a very high chance of the spirit gaining control over their powers and becoming a dual skill user rather easily. The implications of this process, however, are still unknown.Contract And Summoning:
One of the more rarer methods of becoming Ziamichi, some people with the able to summon beast's or spirit's can place those beings within people of their chooses or the they themselves. This is a more successful way of becoming a Ziamichi as there is planning included usually. It's also possible for a spirit to contract with a host by making some sort of deal beforehand and becoming one with the host in return.
THE ZIAMICHI'S RANKINGS
ENTER ZIAMICHI CLASSESSummary:
There is a class system established across most Ziamichi across varies sectors in The Soul Society, Earth and even within some of the Nuevo Espada, Sin Fall and Kokuryuteshi. Most Ziamichi's that are in this vast database are classed from E- to S+. E-, obviously, being the weakest, and S+ being the most powerful Ziamichi on this list. These individuals are given these ratings ranging by The Yayjuu along with the Special Human Task Force in an attempt to rank how powerful their ability is. The rank is determined by a series of tests, studies, lectures, medicines, body simulations, training exercises, data gathering and potential a person has . This process usually helps cases where The Yayjuu can help treat Ziamichi's that come to their doors.
According to The Yayjuu's leader, Shadin Yuudeshi, this system is even used to rank some Shinigami, Vizards and Arrancar due to the similar nature of relying on spirits to give them their power. The whole purpose of this system, however, is to find out who is at what level, attempt to raise it, get their mind straight and make them the best warrior they can possibly be. Class E- to E+:
These are typically the weakest Ziamichi they have on the database. However, compared to most human's, they still considered to be somewhat special. Most of these Ziamichi's are people who get infected by the vast of amount of demon's in the land, develop their own inner spirit somehow or their spirit is pretty much weak. More often then not, E class Ziamichi are around 4-3 to 3-1 tierClass D- to D+:
More or less, this is the middle class of Ziamichi as most of them are ranked at this level. They are often able to do Shikai, fight on par with Shinigami Captains, take on many pack's of Demon's and Hollow's and are considered the backbone of the Yayjuu and Ziamichi Race. Most of these Ziamichi's typically have stronger beast's and more often then not have more control over their spirit's. Most of these Ziamichi's at 2-3 to 2-2+ tier.Class C- to C+:
These are considered to be more upper class Ziamichi. Some Ziamichi's are able to reach this level, making it slightly above average. These Ziamichi are on the verge of unlocking their Bankai, Golden/Hell Angel Forms, becoming very skilled Ziamichi's or close to becoming B class. They are considered to be some of the more leading forces after the D class Ziamichi, sometimes being seen as their leaders. Most of these Ziamichi's have enough control, power and training that they are occasionally seen taking on Captain level. Typically, these Ziamichi are 2-1 to 2-1+ tier.Class B- to B+:
This set of Ziamichi who are equal to a Shinigami who has finally learned Bankai. Once a Ziamichi reaches this rank, it can be hard to level up, making them somewhat of a semi-rarity. They are often seen as the first line of defense when Classes D through C fail. Alot of these Ziamichi's, though, can be seen with some very chaotic host's or difficulty with their powers. Most of these Ziamichi are seen fighting on par with a new or seasoned Captain of the Gotei 13. As such, most Class B Ziamichi are clocked between 1-3 to 1-2+ tier.Class A- to A+:
Considered to be the peak for most average Ziamichi, this class is seen as veteran type Captains. Class A Ziamichi's have either mastered alot of their powers, contain a seriously powerful spirit or have perfected their spirit's powers to an amazing level. Alot of these Ziamichi's can take one or two Captain's at a time and even wipe out some hordes of Demon's and Hollow's. With that being the case, most Class A Ziamichi's are between 1-1 to 1-1+ tier.Class S:
Known as some of the most powerful Ziamichi out there, S Classes are guarded with a very high respect around the Ziamichi community. They have gone above and beyond the command of power, their beast's are typically frightening in power and their sense of control is rather great. This group of Ziamichi's can fight on par with most Espada, protect large cities and guide weaker Ziamichi's down the path of control. So, Class S Ziamichi's are ranked between 0-5 to 0-4+ tier.Class S+:
Class S+ are feared and respected for their power. They are considered to be Super Powered Ziamichi's in the world. It is the highest current class that a Ziamichi can possibly achieve in this realm of existence with only a handful of people who have been given this rank which just shows how difficult it is to get to this level. Shadin Yuudeshi
is a prime example of how extreme this level is. For the majority of Ziamichi's obtaining Class S+ would be a dream and a lot of people are jealous of those who are even at S level.
For few who have achieved Class S+ they are generally considered as monsters as they have enough power to fight alone against a military force on equal terms and even non-Ziamichi's tend to sometimes hate them as they are at the top and believe all Class S+ users look down on people below them, especially people who have no power and consider them trash.
Thus, most S+ are between 0-3 to 0-2+ tier.Class EX:
This has been debated by those within The Yayjuu and even other orgs, but some people, even Shadin himself, believe that it is possible for rare set of Ziamichi's to attain Class EX. To attain this level, some people dare not imagine what would be the power equivalent would be, only that it would be an impossible amount of power that is on par with The Soul King or Kin Iramasha. Though, some people wonder if that's why The Yuudeshi Network was created as it's known Shadin Yuudeshi can accelerate his own powers and along with others whom he trust's.
A PLACE FOR ZIAMICHI TO BELONG
ENTER THE YAYJUU; A ZIAMICHI ORG
The Yayjuu's origins begin over 400 years old. After the larger then life war with The Demon Lord named Ender had finally drawn to a close, Shadin Yuudeshi began drawing blueprints for an organization that would leader be what The Yayjuu is now. At the time of it's conception, it was based heavily and similar to what The Rouge Vizard Group Shinji Hirako had created a few years prior to The Yayjuu's birth. It started off after dealing with his own troubles with his inner demon, Oni Chiita. Shadin had wanted to create this group to help other Ziamichi's out with the being sealed inside of them.
With the help of Ikarumi, Havoc and Seika in order to begin the first steps of materializing their goal to have some type of home for all the various Ziamichi across the globe to call home. So, what started off as a lone rebel group eventually began to grow, expand and become more official over the years. The Early Day's of The Yayjuu began in a run-down stadium in a shady part of old Karakura Town, but with the funding of The Vizard Corps, The Yuudeshi Clan and The Suigara Clan more bases soon began to appear all over the world. And, together with Shadin's increasing influence across the Earth, The Yayjuu corps today has finally reached the same level as orgs like The Gotei 13 or Vizard Corps; being able to stand on it's own feet to handle their business.
Now, in 2412, the purpose of The Yayjuu is more or less the same: giving all Ziamichi a place to call home, form allies to help against anyone after them, make friends, train their inner demon or anything else sealed inside of them and basically be a mentor to these people. However, compared to then, they seem to be more or less inclined to also protecting the citizens of Earth, aiding their allies in this war against all of the opposing forces who wish destruction upon the Earth along with the Soul Society and finally they are even seen as some of Earth's greatest protectors in the worldwide war that is still on-going throughout the war.

THE ZIAMICHI'S SKILLS
ENTER: SKILL SHEET Skill Of Ziamichi Powers:
Skill of Ziamichi Powers simply refers to how talented your character is with controlling their spirit's powers. For example, an advanced user of this trait can easily tap into some of their Inner Spirit's abilities; rather it be a fire spirit that gives them a fire form, an ice spirit that allows them to generate ice on the field or something along these examples. The higher this skill is, the more amazing acts of power they can perform with it; some even merging the Spirit's Abilities with their own to create fused powers. Control Over Spirit:
This refers to how much actual control your body has over the spirit. No, this does not refer to their bond or anything like that stated in the template or even if the spirit allows them control. This refers to how much Control their body naturally has over the spirit. So, for example, an Advanced person in this field could easily use the powers of their Ziamichi without that many drawbacks when compared to someone who is a Beginner that is drained more easily. The higher your skill is in this area, the more easier the strain of being a Ziamichi becomes.Seal Strength:
Seal Strength is how strong the force that is holding the Host and the Spirit actually is. For example, a person with an Advanced in this area typically has less problematic effects, more security in using their powers and can sometimes even perform more risky moves without risk of the varying type of seal that bonds the spirit and host becoming damaged. Along with that, those with more chaotic host can easily tame them the higher their Seal Strength becomes
Sync-Rate: This refers to how stabilized and strong the connection between the two spirit's energy wavelengths, mental states and the overall union is. While the seal focuses on fusing the souls together, the Sync-Rate plays a much different role. Depending on how high their Sync-Rate is, they may see similar effects as the Vizard's Augmentation attributes when using their Ziamichi powers. That is, the better your Sync-Rate Skill is, the more enhancements your character may generally have when they unify with their spirit. While, if you had a lower skill in this section, you may not see many benefits in the stat boosters related to using these dual or triple powersets. To given an example, someone with an Advanced Sync-Rate will generally be able to better handle the fluctuation in power that come with wielding both theirs and the Ziamichi Spirit's energy; being that their two separate tiers. Ergo, they can see augmentation boost in their mental states, will skills, special abilities and so on. The higher you go in this skill, the more Synchronization is possible. A master or Grandmaster in this may even find a way to even temporarily boost their tier level by using the Spirit(s) and their own energy at the same time .
