Welcome to Bleach Platinum Hearts RP! This is a Bleach Role Playing Forum set in the year 2416, over 400 years away from the Original Bleach's timeline. It has elements of both canon and custom for a unique mixture of role playing never seen before on Bleach. To get started, please sign up and read our starter guide:
Name: Magnolia Titles: The Eternity Flower Gender: Female Appearance Age: 17 Age: over 400 Affiliation/Rank: Soul Society Appearance Description:
Appearance Picture: Shown in the header of the template _________________________________
Personality: Zodiac sign: element: Water planet: Neptune Symbol: The Fish stone: Bloodstone Life Pursuit: To avoid feeling alone and instead feel connected to others and the world at large
Vibration: Erratic Energy levels
Pisces Secret Desire: To live their dreams and turn fantasies into realities. Mysterious and alluring individuals, most Pisces are extremely talented, but even though they are gifted in many ways, they still manage to spend most of their lives battling "confusing" conditions. Pisces is the sign symbolised by the image of two fish. Their symbol depicts one fish heading upward, the other pulling downward. This mirrors how Pisceans are frequently torn between two pathways in life, or actually do live two very different existences at the same time.
The number 2, is a very powerful number for them. This zodiac sign is acknowledged as being the Saint and the Sinner rolled into one; the trendsetter of fashion or art, the lost soul, the philosopher and the psychotic and the visionary. As a credit to them, considering their many vulnerable characteristics; Pisceans are incredibly adaptable and resilient. They are to be found leading the field in many diverse areas of life and many Pisces can be found represented amongst top business millionaires. On the other side of the coin, prisons, reform schools and all kinds of institutions statistically hold a high number of Pisceans too.
The Piscean's inner quest to explore their "ivory tower" syndrome can lead them into some most unusual and unlikely living conditions. Of all the signs of the zodiac, Pisces are the ones who end up in the most muddles over the years of their lives. They fantasize about situations, people and particularly romance - and because they spend so much time in their own form of 'fantasy land' this can catch them short in other more worldly areas. Because of this inner world of fantasy, Pisces people seldom perceive whatever is going on around them in its true light. They see life instead as they want to see it, coloring their view of the world in hues and tones far removed from its true reflection. No wonder this is the sign of both miracles and disillusionment. If you are a Pisces, be warned your emotions are a weak spot.
One thing that plays havoc with your life is romance. When things romantically are going well for you, you are on cloud nine. When romance turns sour you land in a heap. Pisces often need to take lots of holidays (or time off) to recover from life's many diverse pressures. You are the zodiac's most sensitive sign, so you need to take extra special care of yourself. Nobody can beat you up, as much as you can beat yourself up within your own mind. In your purest form you are psychic, visionary and a guiding light to all who know you. But, in your "out of tune" state, you become depressed, obsessive and confused. ^ General Oversight into what her personality should be like
Shy: Despite the pain she go’s through Magnolia is a pretty shy individual, possibly because over the years she developed an aversion to normal people or even other people which wanted to help her, possible it also could be because of the fact she never has known anyone she has been helped treated, and shut up in a room for so long. That and the fact in her human life she was dead before she was born which makes for a pretty limited knowledge of the world around her. You see this makes her afraid of most people, so she is a peopleaphobiac of sorts.This extends to her sometimes going into fits of frightened rage, rage which includes basically her mind thinking that what she is doing is more or less out of self preservation making it so that she can get pretty wild when she is spooked.
Pain: Magnolia’s life is ruled by extreme pain, pain which normally would cause a person to die this presents itself, by how she acts some times, she wants death but cannot get it. Her pain is one she knows by now will never go away. Still this pain can cause her to curl up in a ball, or become immobile for a long period of time, she just well cannot take the pain at times. This pain can interfere with her thinking straight and causes her to have more often than not, a raging case of insomnia which she can’t ever seem to get rid of .This also will cause her to not speak often, as she fears that if she did speak it would let loose screams which would cause a pretty good deal of damage. She fears pain, and fears anything that might cause pain, its pretty tragic but it’s the truth, her pain is intense it makes her shiver and it makes her very unstable sometimes.
AntiSocial: She’s pretty anti social as well, maybe being shut up in infirmary just can do that to you. But, she’s extremely unused to social situations, she rarely has had contact with other people. So, really she is like a child in a girls body , she does things sometimes which would be un characteristic of a lady, and also is extremely prone to avoiding normal situations or contact all together, as she has been quiet for so long, now she has the habit of generally holding on to the “quiet” that has served her for so long. Like say if you talked to her, she might be prone to walking away , looking at you in pure terror or just trying to ignore you.
Goal Driven: She’s pretty goal driven as well for the most part, as what she wants to do is learn and be the best she can be. Though this can be pretty hard to do as she’s normally always in a bed, this drives her to actions such as “Wandering” Off or even trying to find somewhere that she could learn with peace, and dignity. Two things that can be pretty difficult, as she rarely gets a second of rest without being assaulted by her “Condition”, so while she may be very goal driven; it is like a double edged sword. Magnolia loves to get things done, all though she can rarely get things done, all because of her predisposition.
Psychopathic Tendencies: Once in a blue moon, Magnolia can deteriorate into a state of sever instability. This usually is marked with lack of concern for her own body, or even individuals. So with this state, she is not only a extreme danger to herself, but for the most part she is, well considered to be a “Extreme” danger to other people as well. Which is why once she rather has, “regressed” into this state of well; mental instability it is best to restrain and make sure she cannot seriously cause any damage to other people or even more specifically, damage to herself as well.
Kuudere Persona: For the most part she is very cold to people who she has, yet to get to know really or even understand. It takes a lot of time for her, to really get used to people because of how her body is constantly wracked with pain. So with that in mind, it takes her a bit to process things such as social/ relationships. More specifically though, this also means it takes her a decent amount of time to warm up to any given person. So if she seems detached, and more often a cold distant presence, that’s just how she is a good majority of the time. This is characteristic of her personality; she is usually very withdrawn in relationships and even with comrades in arms.
Serious: When Magnolia needs to be, she can be extremely serious. This happens when she is in a situation, which has caused her to release; it means she is seriously fighting. Not only that, but magnolia when she’s serious will do everything; absolutely everything in her power: To make things right again.
Sweets: Magnolia has a fondness of sweet things, it’s pretty indiscriminate as well; meaning: Magnolia just loves sweet’s in general. It’s not hard to fathom why, because sweets are comfort food; and that’s no exception here. It’s a lot like one of her crutches; it helps her get through the day; This is one of the main reasons she is “Fond” Of sweets.
Solitude: Despite that she loves company; magnolia also loves solitude. Possibly because when she’s alone she does not need, to monitor her own actions: throw up a façade; or anything of that sort. Magnolia loves her solitude, not quite as much as company but; nearly as much. For one of the times, she can get the most done; or figure out her own feelings, is when she is well alone. It allows her to be herself; to recharge her “People” batteries so to speak. So it’s needed for her to stay in a working, or “Sane” state of mind.
Company: Despite, how she seems a, good majority of the time; Magnolia does in fact love having some company. It might stem from the fact she used to be alone in that hospital room for so long. Now, even though magnolia loathes to openly admit it: company is something she just, loves.
The Night sky: It’s kind of weird, but magnolia is utterly obsessed with the starry night sky. It could be because magnolia for the longest time; was unable to see, or grasp the sight of stars. With this in mind, magnolia could if she had no other obligations; sit and watch the stars until they ceased to shine and she would be content. With that said its quite obvious when you think about it; her fondness of stars that is. It’s one of the things she finds comfort in, magnolia loves the stars they are a work of; well art to her. So yes, one of magnolia’s likes would be the starry jet black dome of the night sky.
Emotions: Magnolia is captivated by emotions; how they define a person, shape a person, and break a person. Maybe because her own emotions have a hard time; coming to light due to her dominating pain. If you think of it this way, it is quite natural for her to be attracted to others emotions; it’s interesting for her to see how people normally interact. That is, without the burden of pain equivalent to magnolia’s; there’s no real logical reason for this, its just something that fascinates her.
Her power: Magnolia hates, her own powers they are nothing but trouble for her. They cause her pain, misery and on a daily basis are a crippling presence. Probably This is one of the things, magnolia dislikes most; she dislikes what limits her life; what paints her life in a shade of agony, a shade which has permanently become entrenched in her mind. This is why she dislikes, and down-right hates her own powers.
Her Shikai: Though magnolia does know she needs it, she hates her shikai. Magnolia tries to avoid its use at all, possible costs. Probably because it causes her to drown in her pain, and it needlessly destroys everything ; I mean everything in its path. Magnolia hate’s how deplorable it is, how detestable fate is to pin her with such a burden; this is why she without a doubt does hate her shikai.
Harming others: Magnolia, for a fact, hates having to hurt other people: she has to live with the conscience of doing it for eternity. With this weighing on magnolia’s mind, she hates having to harm, or maim others; and will avoid it, if there is any possible way to do just that: avoid it. This is why she loathes hitting, or slapping to the point of that magnolia: Will not harm others unless there is absolutely no other option. This is, something that causes her heart to hurt: knowing that she’s hurt other people. This is why she down-right dislikes, harming people in the first place all together.
Immortality: She loathes her immortality; it stops her from being able to: Run, to hide to escape the torment that, she has to endure. Magnolia hates the cage, that her immortality has cast on her; how it limits her and forces her to keep living. Magnolia also hates that she can’t die yet can feel the pain of wounds; which would normally, strike her dead. This really why if Magnolia could; she would kill her immortality and sink into the pleasure of non-existing.
Running away: Because she can’t run, Magnolia hates to see other people run from their selves. Magnolia will usually get extremely angry, for a pacifist anyways; when she sees people denying themselves and trying to suppress who they truly; are. It is for many reasons that she hates it; but its most of all because, she accepted her life long ago; she might not like it, she might hate it; and wish it dead. Though magnolia sticks to it, and finds it disgusting that other people run from it.
On earth, Magnolia was never born. It was never known what time period she was going to be born in, or what life she might have actually had. Her only experience as a human was.. well nothing, it was a long labor in which both her and her mom died. . . Though if that was only the case it would have been, well a blessing but it was not, the woman was tied to the stake and crucified with nails many of which punctured and killed this unborn child. It was after that she got set ablaze while still alive, and slowly burned to death. The death was quick for the babe, but the mother she slowly was burned to death, over a period of 3 months.
No one knows how the mother lived that long, but she did she burned and burned they had to keep relighting her keep the flame going, and she still burned. Screaming crying begging for mercy the mother still was burned, longer and longer to no avail She continued to be burned. It was strange though, why she did not die, no one honestly knew, but what they did know was . . She failed to die, no it was more like no matter what she just kept burning, And burning , and burning .. and burning. No matter what she seemed just not to die, the mother kept being burned and kept screaming in agony. Though no matter what she just did not seem to die it was pain which ruled the mother as she was being killed and murdered. Crows ate her flesh in between the periods in which kindling was being collected.Nothing mattered though, they just kept burning her, trying to kill her. They wanted to kill her, and where determined to do so.
Eventually it worked though, she died 3 months later and literally exploded in a huge cloud of ash and Mist, hollows and the mother’s soul was devoured by a hollow destroying it, reducing it to nothing . . .This babe was never born and sent to the soul society , so in essence she never was a human in the first place. She was born a spirit in a sense, though, also magnolia was a unborn child. Killed by violence.
After that, she was born in the world of the soul society. Though she was a sick child, going into a coma seconds after being birthed into the world. She stayed that way for hundreds of years on a far hill miles from the districts that souls resided in. Her life consisted of memories of a dark place, and excruciating pain. She for those hundred years relived the pain that her mother had endured that was , the pain of never being born. It replayed over. . and over. . . Never ending nor beginning .
Her first life was an eternity of torment, damnation and even extreme pain she would have never woken up, if it was not for the fact she was found by toshiro hitsugaia of squad 10. It was the kiss, of solid ice which awoke her from the eternal damnation that was her sleep. She never could wake up before though she always endured the pain, trying to find something to live through she often in her sleep dreamed of a life without pain, without misery without torment. She often was held in the iron grip of sadness at never being born a human, that her first moments in life was being ran through by the cold, cold kiss of steel and being burned to death within her mother’s womb.
She never got to play with other kids, she never learned to love or to hate. Her life was a life of pain, fear agony, she was born with the desire to die. Though it was the one thing magnolia found out would never happen. When she found out though, is a pretty good question, but she was within the throws of madness, screaming. Dreams that she was slowly being burned alive, that she was something not pure something that did never deserved to exist in the first place.
Repeatedly she would pound in her dream try to die, but that was the one thing that would, sadly enough never happen. She was burned executed and scarred but she never could seem to die. No matter how much she wanted to, or how long she tried this fact remained absolute: She would not die. It haunted her, and tormented her as her life was a prism in which she could not escape, Magnolia felt like she was a bird in a cage, being sentenced to eternal pain with no end.
Toshiro was the one who woke her up, he thought she was dead, and went to pick her up. It was a touch which shook Magnolia from the clutches of her nightmares. She woke up, and saw something sharp, something which was extremely sharp. Needless to say,what she did was she grabbed instinctively and tried to run herself through in the chest. It was a spray of blood, which sent her into the illusion of death she felt like she was dying though it was weird rather than feeling relieved , or a lack of pain she just felt more of it. She screamed and thrashed trying desperately, to find a cure to the pain she was enduring.
No avail, she was picked up by Toshiro, who began to rush her to the medical ward of the soul society it was a tough journey though, as she was trying constantly to get free or kill herself. She wanted to die, though she quickly found out she couldn’t, that is what she found out, after she blacked out. Basically, she went into yet another coma, in she, was subjected to pain, misery death pain. These things looped in a continuous cycle, she cried she screamed but most importantly she just wanted to be free. Free of the never ending nightmare , though that was the one thing that never, happened. Truly though.. when she woke up it was a nightmare people thought she was going to die, to become dead to be dead. But, there was one person who managed to save her.
Kisuke urahara who was puzzled by the conundrum present in this situation, created pills to suppress the power which he speculated was causing all this damage. It was not by any means a 100% cure, Magnolia soon found out it was in many cases just more like a band aid than anything else. It made it so, she was not constantly enduring the pain that is given with death and for that lessening of pain, Magnolia was extremely in debt to kisuke. Even though kisuke told her sternly “This is by no means a cure, it will suppress but never eradicate understand this” Magnolia of course who barely understood emotions took a good amount of time to grasp the meaning. When she did though, she was slightly disappointed but it could never suppress the gratitude she felt towards this man, who gave her a way to lessen the pain.
Magnolia came to terms with her pain, but always was burdened by it, it was heartbreaking to most people to see how happy. . How extremely happy it made her to even have a slight amount of the pain removed from her life, that’s just though how it was. There was a side effect though, the pills where extremely strong, so strong in fact that she had to be put into a state of vegetable ism so that she could adjust to the pills , in which time she underwent several transfusions and six stomach pumps because of the , strength of the pills in question.
So she Constantly was in a state of pain, pain which was so dementing that it caused her to break down, and scream for a month straight, she in this time, was hugging her knee’s crying puking blood as her body was reacting to the strain of such a minor action. Her power also flared up, making it so people could only stand her for long enough to get her pills in her mouth and then exit. Even then it was heart breaking to the point most people avoided her, in this time her “power” that kisuke mentioned had begun to assert itself, to the point the genius had to take measures to keep the soul society’s safety in check. What kisuke did was, he put magnolia under with a product which, Magnolia to insanity yet again, she was reduced to a delirious state, crying screaming though the pain was less and she was kept under constant sedation so that her body could maintain under the immense strain of her own energy. Even then it was to the point that she was often in and out of awareness unable to control her power, puking up blood crying and shaking. Hoping for death even though she could not die.
It Was around this point in time she heard the whisper of her other self, her Zampucto which reached out to her in her misery. It came one day when she was in the worst fit ever, she had wounded countless people who where decently strong, not by physically hurting them. No it just was by them being near her that they had become injured, She had slipped once more for the 3rd time, into one of her extremely long coma’s. She this time though fell and fell, fell past the icy oblivion that greeted her at the surface.
She fell into a strange world, a world which was just pure black, a world of black with white pillars on either side it was strange but elegant, black tiles which beneath was nothing but the eternity which was her life. And to the sides where white pillars pillars which radiated with the hope that still resided in her heart of hearts. It was a world with no noise, not even her own voice, a world where everything was stripped away. Normal people would go mad in such a world, but it was a welcomed change for her. For once magnolia was free of her pain and petty thoughts of suicide , It was well. . . a world with the warmth of familiarity a world which seemed like the caress of a mother. It was everything she had, well never known and probably never would know pain had no purchase here, its concept was lost in the ebb and flow of an eternal tide.
She had no clue what this place was . . . she was not frightened though despite the fact she could not speak , She wandered about aimlessly for the first time, she was free of the crippling and pain inducing condition of her own powers. She if she had her way would have never left it, in fact she stayed in it for a long . . .Long time, searching for the strange owner of a strange world, a world such as this one was. Instead though she did find someone, a small girl, a girl that looked like her but not like her, it looked like a mirror image. By now though Magnolia had found out sound had no concept in this world, it failed to even work, or hold meaning. Though there was a feeling in her mind. . she heard words, words which sounded like the warmth of the sun, and the love and familiarity that she had, for so long been looking for.
“You finally have come, I Was wondering when your power would drive you in here. . .I am Lotus . . . you may not know me.. but I know you.. for you are me and I am you do you accept us? look deep within yourself.. we are you.. you are us.. We are always in your heart. .. “
At a loss for words, Magnolia nodded slowly unsure of what it would entail or what it would bring. Of course though she seemed to begin to rise to the surface it was strange, she thought the words said where merely a metaphor a trivial joke which seemed to take place, but in fact it was not there was a hollow in the base of her chest.. with the slight tattoo of a lotus, a spot which was warm.. familiar much like the girl. Magnolia reached out.. and caressed the shape.. and with a shout of surprise felt her hand slide into her bare breasts. Even more surprised to find something that felt like a hilt inside, quickly she withdrew, her hand shaking in fear. In confusion and disbelief , she was scared and unsure what the hell it was that resided inside her, and she had a feeling she just did not want to know.
After this episode she went quiet curling up and crying for a long, long time with no solace she took her medication as seasons changed . . . The flow of time went on, and on with little reason or rhyme and she began to feel intense pain once more, sure she was heavily limited but there was the feeling of pain that was always lingering beneath the surface, raw power that had yet to be unleashed.
It was many years after that she had met another . . . her first visitor in a very long time. He was a man, who if she had been a normal woman not driven crazy by pain, would find quite attractive. She gazed up at him shyly still she was unused to speaking, so ZX, perceived her as being a mute, someone who could not speak. It was embarrassing but, her lips failed her and her mind just seemed to stop working. In the end she was asked a good deal of questions.. ZX seemed quite interested and genuine , though it freaked her out intensely , she was traumatized and scared.
To be honest she dissolved into a fit of screams which, where fit to raise the dead. As she curled up and shook, her body trembled and her eyes shone like disks she was scared. Frightened , in many ways she just wanted to die, and be erased from existence. Even though it was something that, well could not happen it was something that was her reality. Her pain, a pain that never would go away , often she now was depressed extremely depressed. She just would stare out the window watching seasons and years go by, even though she would take her medication, she often succumbed to her episodes of puking up blood, throwing fits, even causing people around her to be injured in her fits.
As rough as it was, though it was nothing compared to how she now lived she was hurting inside, hurting outside.. her body burned she wanted to be of help, but knew that such a thing surely would be impossible , so with nothing else to do, she began delving into her mind.. determined to unlock her hidden power.. or reach the place that so long ago she had found. It was folly but she tried anyways it was the one place she could be herself, a place she was free of pain and could truly be at peace with herself.
During this time, she met with her zan spirit and learned where other people chance she remains constant. She learned to tap into that amazing amount of power. Even though it nearly destroyed her inner world in the process, she slowly learned, in what in her inner world was probably millions of years but in her exterior world, was only a few months.Yes, in this time she began to discover the extent of her power, and it scared her, scared her to the point she made her zan spirit Lotus promise to erect a prison to seal 95% of it away.
She eventually made it, she enshrouded with the subconscious mind: locking it up so tight, that there was little to no chance of it getting out. This was sunk deep within magnolia’s inner world though that 95% was of both, there was still much power left it was strenuous but she was trying to ease the pain, ease the power she was not yet truly ready to take charge of. It was hard, it drove her near mad, but she managed to do it, with lotus and magnolia focusing on it, they eventually sealed it.
Though, through this time she did learn shikai while it was simplistic , she had learned to control better, allowing her was just her tapping into her power, allowing her to use a small, small fragment of it, Even then she could not use this, as that small amount of power caused her a great deal of pain,Pain which seemed to never go away, this development made her vow she would not ever use it, unless the reason was just and she had no other option. Shortly after though she did go into remission, She was passed out for several months in this time, she was in a state of limbo so to speak, she could not speak. But she was still trapped in the ever present torrent of pain which seemed to never lighten its unyielding grip. More or less you could say it tormented her it gnawed at her and fucked her over like a bad bad hangover from hell. It reduced her once again to a fit of screaming crying and just a extreme mess.
It was after that she was given notice that kisuke urahara had left the soul society some time ago, that was one of the major moments in which her life began to slide into the endless cycle of depression. A cycle that would not stop, she was in her blackest mood, this was the first time in a while that the cage her zan spirit had made the chains rattled and it wanted to be free.. but this was unknown to her at the time, as magnolia was as oblivious as ever.
It was around this time that she had, awoken to find, rather a man who looked like a doll distinctive azure eyes, and blond hair the question would probably have been out of a normal persons mouth “Who are you” But not magnolia she just kept her trap shut, and continued to play with the hem of the bed sheets in her room, it was not a man who seemed to be kind.It was rather a man, who felt cold as ice, dangerous heartless. The kind of man who frightened her, he frightened her, to the point she lost it and threw the iv stand at him. It was not the prettiest of sites, but at least it got the man out of her room, but he just came back in it was not exactly like he was enjoying it, but he seemed to have some deeper sense of caring within him.
That was something different after so long, that someone caring actually showed up it was a first. But still she was quite freaked out, and in pain. Pain which brought down her reason, and made her seem like she was mad, so even though the man had come back, she had said absolutely nothing for so long she was not about to start now. She retained her silence, held onto it like it was her lover, eventually it seemed to infuriate this cold and hollow individual who seemed to rather give up. Not to say he had cared all to much in the first place but magnolia still, was silent hugging her knee’s silently crying and puking blood yet again from the effects of her own power. It was because rather a good many of things that she remained silent, taking her medication and just wanting to die. Pain which consumed her kept eating away, eating away at who she was. It was like a sickness, but a sickness that she just could not stop, or get rid of. Which is why she remained stoic crying in pain grasping for some kind of comfort in the misery that was her life. She was constantly in pain , pain from who and what she was .
After this episode It took, a long time but Magnolia eventually recovered and accepted who and what she is; and what her fate has ultimately brought with it. Magnolia was, in fact discharged from the barracks intensive care ward; half a year ago. From there magnolia began to explore. . for the first time getting to know the world around her.

She looks like many things, but to be frank the Zanpakutō takes the general shape of a little girl. While her appearance shape and form usually chance with the ebb and flow of the state of magnolia’s mind. She is generally the mirror image of magnolia. In most cases looking like a younger form of her, while sometimes it changes slightly with variation. As a whole this spirit looks a lot like magnolia. Which means, she has one gold cat like eye, and alabaster skin; blond hair like that of a doll and a dainty damsel in distress like all in all appearance.
Also, this Zanpakutō spirit likes to wear old world, type clothes. Such as large ball room styled dresses, and just over all she has the “Queen” Vibe like a queen you would picture sitting in a throne room. This is coupled with her “Delicate” Features giving this Zanpakutō over all a nice and reserved; but drop dead gorgeous appearance which is both formal and just plain sexy.
Lotus though, prefers mostly to wear those old- world oriented dresses, but sometimes you can find her wearing more; “Risky” clothing, such as tank-tops and short cropped blue jeans which show off; a rather well formed ass. When wearing this “Kind” of clothing, generally one will begin to notice that lotus does have: a pretty good-sized pair of breasts, which all though she does not flaunt , she is proud of them. She does also on this note, wear bikini’s once in a blue moon; that’s about as risky as she will get though; as for the most part a “bikini” consists of a thong and a suggestive small top, which hugs her body and reveals a decent bit of her breasts; and her ass.
Though, the few things that stay the same are her defined features; her breast size, ass, eyes , body size , hair color and complexion. So basically while she does granted have more wiggle room to tweak her own appearance; her core traits displayed above no matter what are pretty much always there, even if she tried to hide them she would fail spectacularly at it. Anyways that’s lotus.
her inner world, is quite simplistic for the most part; it is summed up as a endless horizon in which the center of resides a “Bridge” over the gap. The whole thing is uniform, retaining the same base color tones though it does have a rather- stream lined look about it. Though other than this, the world is much like a expanse of “Nothing” it just stretches on and on, and on. Rather redundantly actually, as it is the same uniform color with white pillars poking up from the bottom of the path. The pillars themselves just extend going up, and up, and up some more before vanishing into the black depths beyond sight.
The floors generally look like they are flat, flat and smooth like they have no texture to them; at all. They also are pure jet midnight black, like slabs of obsidian perfected and molded into a 3by 3 foot symmetrical square, by some otherworldly presence. These also, seem to give off a strange light luminescent and dim. Lights it only just barely, enough to show the intricacy of their; simplistic yet breath-taking structure, and design.
The pillars, seem to hold the same, elegance; though if you scrutinize on them enough, they are actually covered in a fine layer of images; more precisely they seem to be memories. Not just good memories or bad ones, but a mix matched collage of both; which is both interesting about magnolia’s inner world. This is interesting since, quite literally the story of her life; the ups and downs can be gleaned from these pillars.
Sealed Zanpakutô Apperance :
a lotus tattoo on her center of the breasts. Its slightly white. Bleached of color it looks quite strange compared to the rest of her. All though within this lotus tattoo rather, is a rather standard katana, like most of the lower ranked shinigami sport. There is one acute difference thou, the blade itself has an eerie presence about it, because it generally has the feeling of nothing, which is a pretty peculiar feeling for the grand scheme of things. Sealed Zanpakutô Abilities:
The partial immortal factor: Quite simply put, she is Immortal in a general sense of the term- though not quite 100% fully immortal as that would be another thing all together. As she can be killed in the field of combat just like anyone else could though if would take slightly more effort. As while she can be killed through a mortal injury she can live through 1 or two fatal wounds, such as being cut in half and so fourth. This is because of the matter being to actually "Kill her" means you would have to eradicate her with fatal wounds on both the spiritual and physical level. Eluding to having to destroy both her "Soul chain" and her body before she would die.
This of course being the case it is rather useful, as while she can be "Killed" it has to be a combination of both spiritual and physical means to actually bring her down. Its due to this that her body perchance is strong and at the same time durable. Meaning you could render her in a state of half death for all her life by hacking away at her "Physical body" But if her spiritual soul chain was not destroyed by spiritual means, well she still would be firmly anchored into the roots of our society.
This gives her the illusion of being fully and truly "Immortal" but when you look at the manner of which her condition is within her body you would see that basically unless both spiritual and physical fatalism is dealt it would be a rather tricky business indeed to actually finish her off perchance. This is by no means her being immortal but, it is a way that makes her rather a good deal harder to kill and makes it so she cannot die by aging, but as well it must have destroyed her soul chain and her physical self before she would truly be "Dead".
So you could stop her by chopping her up, into tiny pieces and spreading her across the globe but unless you actually killed her on both levels she would still on some level be considered to be actually "Alive" though not in a state where she would be a threat to anyone in the grand scheme of things. So with that in mind, she is by no means immortal, but it takes a combination of spiritual and physical wounds to bring her to a state where she would die.
Spiritual pressure: She has colossal spiritual pressure for her tier, in actuality it could be considered like a plume of gravity which expands and explodes over the field when combat is taking place, though this spiritual trace is volatile and destructive, it breaks down compounds around her much like rotting or something being shredded to itty bitty pieces. Because of both its presence and the density of it, it makes a slight halo around her and is able to break surrounding buildings when released into a form that could be felt "Physically"
When it first is released it is staggering able to physically knock back foes who could sense it from the trauma such power would induce, in a nut shell this massive amount of deadly spiritual pressure is able to cause damage to both her and the foe's she fights on a daily basis. In fact because her spiritual pressure is so high, well it causes her to to sustain injuries such as things like internal bleeding and external injuries in general, both of which are generally quite often a annoyance to her but not quite something that could become a. deadly problem.
To be honest her spiritual pressure in itself is quite staggering , but normally finds itself to be self contained. Focused in a small radius around her it generally is like a gravity bomb in the area it flocks to like bee's to their respective queens. Of course because its focused it generally causes her not to break things unless they come into direct contact with her meaning like if she touched a building chances are the pressure itself could "Break" the buildings structure through a release of pressure which in the end would cause a decent amount of destruction. This is why her pressure could be though of much like an embodied force of shattering, because the force when it radiates outwards? Well it can become so much that basically it causes the things it comes into contact with to shatter.
This means, really its amazing against rigid structures and hard defenses , being able to shatter objects that she directly touches , its kind of like a focal point when she touches an object. It would shatter on the sudden release of maybe a fragment of her whole amount of bottled up energy.
So when she touches an object? for example if she was hit by a falling boulder it would explode into a million fragments from the force of her own internally compact energy structure. Which releases the pressure built up not the energy but the pressure as the spiritual energy itself is focused on her body and if I may add her spiritual pressure all of it is focused in this slight area, which makes it like walking through a slow motion area. Its quite hard to navigate through then in proximity.
With this said, of course it cannot instantaneously shatter things such as foe's of higher tier then her, though the stronger the defense the more susceptible it would be to the shattering affect that presents itself, so say if you came in direct contact with her fist? well it would make it rather deadly because the punch would have a release of pressure on impact which would be added to her own power which already would be quite the problem .
Density: it is in a nut-shell rather dense to begin with, being able to physically be felt and damped the attacks that are present around her, though this is part of how it naturally is. From this density all though is the fact that is boosts her physical capabilities even though physica lly she is quite frail it works to help her rather nicely with things such as boosting her speed and strength and to some degree her stamina as well.
Because of the density as well, it generate its own kind of field where non player controlled objects could find themselves to be rather broken up because of the fact this spiritual density has such a pressure radiating in every direction that it shatters breaks and compacts things that come in contact with it in the general scheme of things Making it so that the density is a key factor in how will it does what it does. Even more so it works towards slowing down foes in the general area of it. This spiritual pressure in actuality is so dense truth be told that it doubles the weight of foe's that come in contact with this extremely compact and dense field of power.
The density also, has the affect of compacting the ground around her making it in a sense a rather solid feature, hard and compacted it does change the terrain she walks on quite a bit when used in the scheme's of combat and in the applicative ways it can be used in general. So in a short nut shell this is the benefits of her spiritual pressures "Density"
Amplifier: The dense spiritual miasma also acts as a amplifier for her Kidō skills. meaning say for instance if she fired a Kidō #30 technique it would have the power of a #35 Kidō technique, boosting it a couple levels, makes it rather useful for her; but in general Kidō itself becomes potent stuff when fired from her compact form, because of the reason being that well. The density that the spiritual pressure is compacted; well it makes for a excellent soup which is harvested and put to use in the Kidō skills.
The amplifier also works towards natural skills too , because the density of spiritual energy makes for a useful "Booster shot" it can increase them by 10% above what they naturally would be, not being much of course. Though it is something when you think about the grand scheme of things its quite handy when in a tight squeeze as well. By making it not only more potent but stronger and faster. when fired its like being shot through a sling shot, as projectiles are amplified from the release of pressure that follows behind them.
That release of course shoots it forward, and makes it so that it is rather useful for damaging and affecting the outcome of battle. If not through the means of power or spiritual pressure, through the means of speeding up and acting as the Amp to a electric guitar , it takes the power already present and boosts it. That is another benefit of the compact spiritual pressure that she benefits from since she knows how useful it can be. And that is the insight into the amplifier affect.
Electricity: from the colliding particles electricity is formed arcing around her body, in a kind of "Haze" making it rather jolting to be around such a extreme pressure as well. Making it so that she is also a generator of electrical energy, not quite in a manner that she can use, but all the same, it is a source of energy that could be utilized, it works freely though cause both her burns and scorch marks on the ground around her. This is why she usually after a fight will have burns and so forth.
The pay off is that all though it harms her, it allows for a charge which crackles throughout the spiritual field that is compacted around her, running at low amps in damaging quantity though still it gets up there as a source of power for others making it quite useful for electrical allies in the heat of battle. this is the benefits of her sealed form its not much as it only focuses on her spiritual pressure but it is rather useful in the scheme of things.
Drawbacks: for pressure
The main draw back is that she does bleed after a extended duration of roughly 5 turns of her own spiritual pressure being in this state which is generally why she chooses to keep it locked up deep inside her, so that she will not have to cause such severe harm to herself. This generally is shown through not only the burns on her body but quite a good deal of pain as well. For the fact of the matter is she is being electrocuted by her own spiritual energy , causing blackened burns on her body which does not feel that good in the grand scheme of things
Of course this goes further then injury, because the pressure makes it so in the heat of battle she has a hard time controlling how much damage she does, this being a draw back because it means it can harm her as much as it harms other people, not that fun of a prospect when in the middle of a heated battle to say the least. This is kind of like saying basically while she is strong, she is as much her own enemy as her own friend, making for quite the interesting turn of events.
Another thing is that, when fighting she does not have the best defense, in the truth of the matter her defense is minimal at best, because the fact of the matter is, she really does not need it to begin with. This can leave her open to attacks and when they land it can make it kind of annoying for her to deal with in the scheme of things. Though this is a key factor its not the deciding factor really as when she gets hurt she's more likely to have inflicted damage to the foe while getting hurt.
This mainly is also coupled with the draw back of when she uses Kidō, it does leave burns on her hands, decent burns to say the least. As in the scheme of things the strength that her Kidō is amplified to is great in battle, but because of her low defense it will leave pretty good burns on her arms to say the very least when trying to cast the stronger spells but that's just how it is in the scheme of things what really could she do about it?
Extreme Offense/Defense: Her speed, and everything else may be shitty, but what she has is her Durability and strength. Its partially because of her power magnolia has had to endure, and keep getting stronger: not so much though does this translate into a pinnacle or maximum of what would be considered to be possible, but instead it just is that durability and strength are vastly stronger than any other skill at her disposal.
Release: Rip and Rend Shred this petty fate: Eternal Bloom
Shikai Description: She is the same, as before all though her sword has changed. It now is a hand and a half-handle sword; which is curved up like a scimitar. Though this blade is glowing pure blue, and seems to have a great deal of pressure vibrating in the blade. The blade itself is extremely heavy making it nearly impossible in shikai for someone other then her to pick it up.
The blade also is double sided, though what normally would be the flat of the blade, is really instead actually a saw back, making it look like a massive combat knife more so then anything else. Of course though, the blade itself is extremely volatile because of the fact it has been compacted and fused with a great deal of spiritual pressure.
Because of this, when slicing the blade can cause, a kind of interesting side affect, literally releasing a burst of pressure which is both disorienting and at the same time, good at knocking foes down. It has explosive power, which is extremely useful in the heat of battle which is pretty useful for knocking foe's back.
On her other arm is a shield , which has a massive gaping mouth on it, this mouth looks like a hellish contraption that belongs on something from ones worst nightmares. This in itself is extremely hard, and has a dense vortex of her insane spiritual pressure compacted around it, making it quite useful in the heat of a fight. Not to mention the shield is pretty damned durable. Shikai Abilities:
Bash: Her shield can use bash, which is in fact a high level version of her natural spiritual pressure's ability. It is a slam skill that has not much power damage wise, but is amazing in repelling. This skill itself works by on impact releasing a burst of pressure which ripples out on the face of the shield like a reactive armor, her spiritual pressure amplifies it to make it so that the force it emits is both extremely large but also extremely explosive being used specifically to force foes back into their place.
Of course bash is a skill that does little damage, as said before, this is why the skill is used to get some breathing room in a fight. This is why the force is so large though being suited not for damaging but as a knock back. A means to get some distance between her and who ever she finds herself to be fighting at the moment in time she is fighting at.
Repel: Another shield skill, using her massive quanitity of spiritual pressure, slightly stronger then the bash skill, what it does is quite simple and can be used as a second to the bash skill, by condensing a mass amount of pressure and using shatter from the original skill , given to her by her spiritual pressure it makes for a useful attack stopper though it takes a turn to recharge after use due to the fact it uses a slight deal more then her bash technique .
So this one uses around 3 cero's worth of excess condensed energy, which is projected outwards around 2 feet from the original skill, by doing so it increases the defense and is a negating force towards a attack of the same tier, meaning that on impact what it would do would be negate the attack if of equal power tier wise, before the shield's impact would then finish off the job itself. Because of this repel though is a skill that's not to be used often , its used when things get slighter tougher and also is the second chain to bash.
Chain means that if the preceding link is used in this case bash, the move could be used after in the same turn if its recharged, making it so that, bash then repel could be used, in combination to throw a foe back, then negate an oncoming attack making it quite useful.
Deflect: deflect is stronger then the preceding skill repel, and it works by making a wide area surge replicating the shield several times, and is a chain attack that is well suited for fighting multiple foes, it takes a long recharge time all though having a 3 turn recharge due to the strength and prowess of the skills defensive capabilities.
When deflect happens is basically is used through the tuning fork affect, from her sealed form. It amplifies the repel skill, and puts it into use into a multi combat repel skill, this can be used to deflect up to 7 attacks of equal power, though this only works when the preceding chain move repel is used,
For that reason this is more of a defensive move that will only see the light of day when in multi person combat not in a simple 1 on 1 bout.
Thrust: This is the weakest in the chain of her blade skill and is known as thrust. It works mainly by using her spiritual pressure on the center of the blade in a thin destructive layer which is skin tight to it. On impact this attack is high penetrative able to weaken armor by 3.5% on the hit, besides the damage that is being already done in the first place. Of course, this skill requires no cool down, but the weakening affect maxes out at 7%.
This skill as I mentioned is very weak though, as it is the starter and the most often used of her chain attack, also when initiated the blade hums and a black veil forms on it quickly, the attack is precise to the point and allows very little reaction before it takes place.
The attack itself is more like a anchoring move, here to set up the rest of the chain that follows it, though the attack itself can be used in combat as fighting. It is though in primary use a starter or initiator of the chain attack as a whole thing in entirety.
Rapid Slice: this is the second in the chain, and it can be used in battle though it takes a 1 turn cool down after its use, because this one is also like the first completely about speed. It follows after the first in a split second accuracy, being the strength of a cero. And due to this the slice itself uses the saw backed side of the blade being rather useful for the action of quickly striking out at the foe while they would be recovering from the first attack. This one also is known as the gate way slice, as it opens up the following skills in the chain making it so that the next skill could be used .
With this said, this attack does not have that much brute force in it either; as this one is all about the speed, being able to execute it with speed which is not only extreme but also very useful in the scheme of things. This is why it is the follow up attack, and is faster then the attack preceding it. To make it more likely to throw off a foe, this attack is used to inflict a precise and deep wound, and further would shatter armor from her pressures affect, though not by much.
The strike in itself, is good at penetrating due to the jagged edge and speed it is going, it is more of a thrusting slice though, as it comes in quickly and with deadly precision, this attack can be used in harmony with her bash skill when need be, which is also something that makes it well, even that much deadlier.
Feinting Slash: this slash comes in lightning fast after the gate way slice or Rapid slice, and is stronger then the other taking 2 turns to recharge after its use. Of course this skill in itself can only be used after the previous one is used. the slash starts out with a feint, making the blade momentarily disappear from the speed its going, so that the main attack is lightning fast delivered right after the feint.
This attack is meant to disorient the foe, and by employing the feint, it is a lightning fast counter move which does a good deal of damage, because of the pressure of the blade and the focus though, this blade becomes rather like a snake, slippery and dangerous. Though this attack in itself is not exactly one of the stronger ones, it is though one that should be looked at with worry. For this attack is meant to cause bleeding, and further will weaken the armor of a foe if it hits, while also the attack causes minor fractures on the cutting site from her previous slice.
This attack can be used right after the preceding chain skill, because of the fact this chain move is meant to be quick fast dangerous, and able to do a lot of damage in a short amount of time if the situation called for such a thing to happen. Of course this attack is known as a opener or the preshow attack as it usually will be used to introduce the continued chain attacks which follow the first one, this is also used to disrupt the flow of her own movements making her harder to "Predict."
Wolf Slash: This slash is chained along after feinting slash, because of the fact this one is about savage speed and damage. It uses the saw backed edge projecting using her monster-like spiritual pressure the fangs of wolves, this attack slices down quick and is more about lacerations then wide spread damage. This also punches through defenses, much like a pack tears down the their prey, It is one of the more deadly slashes in her arsenal due to the fact it causes a high amount of trauma and a great deal of bleeding.
Though this is a intense slash it can only happen the following turn if the chain manages to reach the previous one, this slash will follow near instantly and is known because it brings the more serious slashes into play, this skill itself is one which requires a 3 turn cool down because it uses a good deal more energy then the preceding slices that are present.
This attack is also much stronger then the preceding slashes, using brute savagery as explained before to obtain its goals as a whole matter.
Bear slash: This slash is the one which follows wolf slash, its not quite as fast but it uses the disruption from wolf slash to its general advantage. What it lacks in speed it makes up for in brute power this is one of the most physically damaging slices that are in the chain, the blade slices with the sharp normal blade side, though this skill is deep penetrating and produces deep cuts when it hits, it also is useful for breaking through tough armor which would be weakened by the point it was used.
This attack also, is strange in the fact that it produces a extreme amount of bleeding if it was to land a hit, this is generally because of the fact being it is one of the finishing slashes which not only take up a massive amount of energy, but are highly unlikely to be reached, and because of this the slice in itself takes around 4 turns before it could be used again.
Cheetah Slash: This slash is insanely quick, and follows up the slash before it known as "Bear slash" because of how it works it causes a great deal of damage in a polar opposite manner to the bear slash. It actually causes a thin jagged line of damage, its not a producer of big cuts, but instead narrow "Paper cuts" though these paper cuts tend to be not only extremely deep but also bleed more then the larger cuts in the general scheme of things.
With cheetah slash it generally is used as the finishing technique because the slash itself can cause a shockwave around her or a sonic boom from the speed that the blade is going at this point, its said to seem to lag in and out of view at the rate it finds itself going momentum wise from this point forward.
Electricity Pool: Her spiritual density at this point also generates a immense general amount of electricity, which still she has no real use for at this point in time. Though it is more contained and is like a white hot flame of lightning crackling in her compact spiritual energy. It is not still something that she finds of use, but it still can be used to "Charge" up people who are electricity users, and it quite frankly other then that is considered to be a nuisance to her. In reality it actually does more damage then it does help.
This electricity field will effect general electronics and cause electricity circuits to go wild and fry themselves, from the general voltage and energy presence of the electricity which is constantly being generated from the pressure that is around her thanks to shatter. For now though it still causes burns and so fourth, generally having not much more about it that would be even remotely helpful when you think about it.
Though the electricity will give a major boost to electrical allies in the general area, making it so that they will find a easy supply of energy in the heat of battle, this also though is attracted to metallic objects much like a lightning rod would be, which is rather annoying when you generally think about it. Its beyond annoying and tends to hinder her.
Amplifier 2.0: This allows her amplifier to double in its effectiveness, working much like a "Upgrade" it has allowed for the Amplification rates to be rather drastically increased in the grand scheme of things, which can be considered to be quite useful. Though this also allows for her pressure to be increased as well tripling the weight of foes who find themselves coming in contact with her and of course it boosts her spiritual energy by giving it a much needed jump start and increase which is both dangerous and useful at the very same time. So it is both a good thing and a bad thing in the general scheme of things, how ever you need to look at it.
Though in short the amplifier is upgraded thanks to the heightened level she finds herself to generally be in when she is in the realm of shikai, this benefits her by increasing her natural skills, abilities and so fourth to a pretty useful degree .
Release: time to wake up Level 2: Lotus Major
Released Shikai Description: Her shikai is much the same though it seems to gain a kind of crackling part to it, the blade and shield stay the same, though in this stage there seems to be a slight increase in the shields size, and the blades length and weight. Of course the previous features stay pretty much the same in the general scheme of things.
Also the blade in itself gains nothing in essence but the shield itself does actually gain something, the gaping mouth on it now has a intense energy compacted within it, and seems to be marginally sentient being able to bite and spit out things on occasion. Other then this, the thrum of power increases and causes further damaging to her due to the strain it puts on both the mind and the body in the general scheme of things as a whole. Released Shikai Abilities:
Lightning Lake: The lightning further increases though it has no use, now it literally glows around her like she is a power-plant, all though this is because of the increase in both spiritual power and energy, this means a increase in pressure and break, which as a byproduct increases the lightning creating abilities of this skill as a whole done deal.
This means the increase would be noticeable as voltage can reach up to 3,000,000volts when the tiny electrical impulses expand their way outwards, this also causes a risk when around water, as the electricity will expand outwards and literally surge through the water creating a massive imbalance or in short it would cause a electrocution effect in the water as long as it was in contact with her as a whole.
This of course is also on the flipside pretty nasty, as it can cause pretty severe burns on magnolia as well, creating exposed muscle , if she is as unlucky as to be hit with one of the electric waves that she generates from her own body. Of course though this power, increases electricity users strength by 20% when they are within her field, because of the intense density of both her electricity and the amount and quality of it. Generally speaking; at this point the electricity is being generated regularly making her much like a charger or a generator, its not a intentional process though of course, being it is created as a byproduct to her spiritual pressures shattering nature.
So the byproduct still cannot be used at this point, though it does get a drastic increase as explained above, due to her releasing her shikai into its higher state, which is just below bankai. So magnolia will now more then ever find herself being damaged rather severely by this as a whole even though it is also a harmful thing to others as when within her compact reishi field there is a chance of being struck by this nasty electricity; which would make for a pretty bad burn in the grand scheme of things in a whole nutshell explanation of the matter.
Anyways that's the boost magnolias electricity creation gets.
Spiritual pressure increase: Her spiritual pressure compacts even further now, and increases quite a bit, because in this state magnolia is nearing the stages of her bankai. Something that is both extremely strong and extremely guarded in the whole scheme of things .It makes it so that her spiritual pressure is severe while it still retains its former properties they have been boosted as well. So shatter or shred the affect that occurs from her spiritual pressure is increased, making it able to be a pretty good defense.
Though it can be overpowered as a whole, the general scheme is that her spiritual pressure bumps itself up, to give her a boost to match the level that she would have in this state released to, though it makes it so that she has a hard time controlling her own spiritual pressure. It still in a nutshell has allowed magnolia, to strengthen her crucial quality her spiritual pressure, this fortified improvement really does not do much in her current state though, its more just like a "Power boost" if anything else.
This being said though, it is still compact like it previously was; making it more or less something that is a pain to deal with in the heat of battle, it also at this point is much more volatile making for the shattering release affect that occurs when something, comes into contact with her to be that much worse. In short this power boost is a increase of her natural skill through improving what she already can use and going from there, which is what honestly makes it as useful as it is as a whole done deal when you think about it.
Anyways that's it for her released shikai.
[size=10]Draw backs: Like you know with such a nifty thing as this there are drawbacks;
Damaging: her shikai basically causes her damage as she dishes it out, in both after 5 turns she would be pretty much bleeding, and find herself pretty out of it depending on how much she had used and how far she progressed into her shikai in the general scheme of things. This is why she would rarely use this unless magnolia really had not much of a choice in the matter, generally speaking it causes her a good deal of pain and agony in this state due to the electricity.
Bankai Description: In bankai nothing much really changes in her appearance other then the gauntlets that now would encase her hands she still has her shield and sword though, which remain pretty much unchanged through this whole ordeal astetically, although they become much heavier and denser, literally to the point that if she threw either one at someone it would feel like something pretty damned heavy being dropped on them.
Limit for bankai is 7 turns
Electricity Manipulation: In bankai Magnolia harnesses the ability to use her electricity, by bending and manipulating the electricity generated by her, and in the environment; making it so that she can get some use out of what before would have been pretty damaging to her as a whole. So she gains the ability to use and bend electricity through actions moments and mental commands. Primarily this is related to the shape and movement of the electricity such as forming it into something very much like a knife or a whip. It honestly depends on the situation.
An example of the environment would be if magnolia was standing in the city, she could possibly use the electricity in the power cables to her advantage pulling and using it for her own power, and creating a kind of way to further the variety of attacks she could use.

Alright, I hate to be the bad guy here, but there are a few problems with this app that I'm gonna have to ask you to fix before this can actually be approved:
All Shinigami have reiatsu, they MUST have reiatsu, they are spiritual beings, and thus are made out of reishi particles. You cannot have a Shinigami that does not have reiatsu, that is simply impossible, as they would not exist. No matter what, your Shinigami has to have reiatsu.
No immortality! This is a pretty simple one, your character cannot be immortal. Even Shadin, who cannot die from aging, can still be killed. Just because a power could kill your character does not mean you make them immortal. If you give a character a power that could very well kill them, you have to be prepared for the very likely scenario that their power WILL kill them. You just cannot have an immortal character, end of story.
The power. Honestly, there is a lot wrong here. There are a lot of contradictions between what you state are weaknesses/drawbacks and what the power can do. This "shredding" thing is honestly something I'd have to say no to. This also goes back to the reiatsu issue. A Shinigami's powers come from their Zanpakutō, and thus, are reiatsu-based abilities. If you have an elemental power, you use reiatsu to create and control that element. Now, if you still wanted something that was able to shred energy, you can still do that with reiatsu, however, you would have to tone it down quite a bit. Also, that whole "She cannot use 100% of her element, she can only use 50%" is an invalid argument for a drawback. If you can only use 50%, then that is 100% for you, it is all of what you can use. Also, for a power like this, it would have to lower ALL of her physical abilities. Just because you have to endure pain does not make you physically stronger; case in point being cancer. If you had to suffer through cancer and chemotherapy, I can assure you that you would not be coming out physically stronger than before. Sure, you may have some emotional strength, but that stuff still wrecked your body, it's not gonna be stronger. Also, the whole "clone" part in Bankai is a really iffy area, and I'd suggest scrapping it in my opinion. In all honesty, I'd suggest scrapping the whole power, but if you really still wanna do it, there are a lot of changes that need to happen.
