He wears the common kimono seen worn by the shinigami in the bleach series. (simply replace the cloths in the picture.)
- Appearance Picture:
Personality: Steven is a very intelligent person. He is often found sitting around and thinking through problems. He fights using strategy rather than brute force. He will draw out fights to wear down his opponents and find openings in their fighting style. He was often bullied due to his intelligence and has grown to hate these people. He finds it hard to not stand up for the little guy in fights. He takes everything very seriously which means he doesn’t take to jokes very well. Despite his serious nature he is very loyal. Once someone becomes his friend he will stick by him and not allow anyone to harm them. He puts out a very tough shell so it is hard to get to know him but this is because he feels that those not willing to make the effort are not worth knowing. Those that try for long enough will almost always become close friends.
- Likes: He likes puzzles and challenges. Things that get him to think about the situation are his favorite activities. He also likes a good fight because they keep his skills honed and sharp. The greater the challenge set before him the more fun he has trying to overcome it.
- Dislikes: He hates anything that his luck bases as it never seems to be with him. He hates gambling and those to do hit. He will make bets but only when it is a contest of skill.
History: Steven was what you would consider a nerd while alive. He was smart and was able to pass most of his classes without trying. He was fascinated with roleplaying games and medieval weapons. He was not particularly notable for anything beyond that. He was not particularly strong, fast, or good looking. He did not have any special amount of spiritual powers either. He went through life not really being noticed very much.
One thing that he was able to do was travel the world and find those that still knew how to use ancient weapons. He visited them one by one and learned from them. He never became good enough be called a master but he learned to use a large number of weapons. He wasn’t perfect with anything but using his intellect and wide range of known weapons he was able to excel at any combat situation he was put in. He devoted himself to this and had a job as an entertainer in a medieval fair. He was able to win many times in tournament…..though not quite always. His opponents were not always so honorable as him and one time when he won his opponent felt cheated and took his life with a pistol.
Steven did not remember everything about his life when he woke up in the soul society but he did remember his weapon training it was the majority of his life before he died. He saw the shinigami and their skill as they protected the people and knew that was the life he wanted. There was not always peace and he saw a large group of bandits assaulting a lone shinigami and he knew that the bandits would win through force of number so he picked up a nearby staff and joined the fray and together they won the fight. Steven never found out the shinigami’s name but when he was asked to attend the shinigami academy he knew the recommendation must have come from him. He excelled at combat with the Zanpakutō and he was decent at the other fields of study but not the level of his weapon skills. He graduated with a decent standing and recommendation for the gotei 13.
Reiatsu Color: Red
- Zanpakutô Spirit Name: Oruzje
- Zanpakutô Spirit Appearance In the inner world Oruzje looks like a 6foot tall robbed figure. There is little visable beyond the robe but it is clear that he is strong from his movements and posture. Various weapons can be seen coming from his back which disappear if he is using that particular weapon.
- Inner World: The inner world is a large plain with grave markers all around it. Ruins can be seen scattered about that resemble walls and forts. There is rusted armor and broken weapons scattered around the plain as well. It appears to be the remains of a large battle.
- Sealed Zanpakutô Apperance : When not using his Zanpakutō it simply remains it the form of a katana.
(These are what they will be once my character gains shikai)
Shikai Abilities-Oruzje’s main ability is that it can take on the form of a variety of weapons. It is adaptable so it can be used in a very wide range of situation. Different forms slightly increase Steven’s physical capabilities but cause a decrease in another. His shikai is a physical Zanpakutō.
Shikai Description- All of the weapon forms that Oruzje can take have silver blades/body’s while the handle wraps are all brown. Oruzje cannot assume the form of two weapons at once.
|Form ||Enhanced ability ||Decreased ability |
|Dagger ||Speed || Durability|
|Long Sword ||Weapon Skill ||Strength |
| Axe|| Stength||Weapon Skill |
| Shield|| Durability||Speed |
|Lance || None||None |
The advantage he gains when using the lance is it is a longer range weapon then the others but he is more exposed to opponents once they get in close. The dagger he uses when speed gives him an advantage and he tries to get behind his energy. The long sword is his best weapon and he uses it when he needs to target small openings in his opponent’s defense. The Axe is a brute strength weapon that he uses when his opponent is defensive and he needs to break through it. He uses the shield to guard himself from strong offensive opponents. He must make judgment calls for what the best weapon to use is. He must be careful to make sure that his opponents do not take advantage of his weakened abilities
Release-Take form Oruzje to release (can start as anything), Shift Oruzje to change the weapons form.
Roleplay sample-Steven walked across the plain with hills in the distance. Looming in front of him was the cave that the others had spoken off. It was supposed to be infesting with a large number of hollows. It had become a dare among the gotei 13 to see who would be able to take out the most hollows before running out of reiatsu and being forced to retreat. He was the last one to go and knew that it was going to be a challenge for him. He saw the first of the hollow emerging from the cave and start to run toward him hungry for his soul. He stared at them as they came closer and gripped his Zanpakutō tighter.
“If it is a feast you want I am afraid I will have to disappoint you.” He said not yet drawing his sword waiting for the right moment. Just before the first hollow hit him he quickly drew the sword and slashed his foe all in one fluid movement taking down the first enemy. The next one reached him only seconds after the first and in what was almost a continuous motion of the first attack he brought down the second. He took a step closer to the cave and the other hollow counting over twenty already showing themselves. “This is going to be fun.”
