THE SHINIGAMI TEMPLATE
Enter The Black Nightmare
I. Basic Information• Name:
Ryoichi Kallen• Titles:
The Black Nightmare• Gender:
Ryoichi is completely a male no matter where you look from any views.• Appearance Age:
He still retains his looks as a young male, which his age can be ranged from 17 to 23.• Age:
A Member Of Gotei 13, 4th Seat Of Squad 2.• Appearance Description:
From some people's view, Ryoichi can be seen as quite of a handsome young man. His eyes can be very surprising, that his left eye consists a complete black, while his right eye is silver-colored, which almost looks like his right eye's color are worn off from black for no reason. His hair is a complete pure white, which matches together with his looks. His clothing is a set of his favourite, and personal coat, made out of crocodile skin and his own spiritual energy and a silver-colored inner T-shirt. He also wears a white scarf on his neck protected by the black collar of his coat. His wrists are worn with a pair of black bracelets, specially crafted with his own hands and designed to surpress his spiritual power. It is completely made of pure reishi and can be seen by humans, but not visible in darkness. Meanwhile, he also wears a pair of black leather pants that matches together with the clothing that he wears. His leather pants are worn and tied up together with a black leather belt, which there is nothing special with it. The only feature that can be seen on the belt is an 'X' symbol right on the front belt. His almost-black appearance can also make him look dangerous, as most of his clothing consists of black colors. The only thing that does not match with his clothing are his skin, which is purely white that he can be mistaken as a caucasian at some point.
To be able to see Ryoichi wearing a normal black kimono with a white undergarment underneath, which commonly worn by most shinigamis in Soul Society, mostly the Gotei 13, is rarely seen. He prefers his usual clothes than to wear a normal shinigami robes which tends to annoy him in a way where he could not handle wearing them, but in any meetings announced by the Gotei 13, or his squad, he will definitely wear the black kimono as he does not want to get himself into troubles, although wearing shinigami robes weren't much of his 'style' and less comfortable than his usual clothing.
He equips himself with twin zanpakutos' that are placed on his right waist, which can be noticed that Ryoichi's a left-handed man when he draws out his blade with his left hand at the start. His height can be measured as 6 feet 11 inches tall, while his weight is 61 kilograms, which made him a bit lightweight for his current height even though he is muscular and does not look thin at all no matter how anyone looked at him. His other equipment would be the pair of bracelets, specially crafted and designed for surpressing or might as well locking his spiritual power temporarily, and it weakens as he releases his Zanpakutō through 2 stages, shikai and bankai. From a normal view, the bracelets are made of tough steels that even a thick blade or a bullet can go through it, making it a very tough equipment to break. It can also be powerful enough to withstand hundreds of blows from a giant hammer that is powerful enough to crush an average shinigami. Although it is small, but it gets tough when it comes to defense. Its other trait is that it is easy to be removed, as there is a visible button at the right side of the bracelet. Once pressed, the bracelet unlocks by its own and falls off from his wrist. This can result his spiritual power being re-boosted once removed one bracelets. It has to be removed with caution.• Appearance Picture:
I. Personality = Cold-Blooded = :
Nevertheless, Ryoichi can be very cold-blooded at times. By the strict training from his father, Ryoichi was forced to be a cold-blooded man to not spare a single life during combat, but he was not entirely cold-blooded, as some man deserves to live instead of dying before his blade. Pissing him off may not be a good choice to make, since he will cold-bloodedly chop you from pieces to pieces, until the person has no space to be chopped left. No matter his opponent's an arrancar, a hollow or from Shadow Fall, even Monsuta, he would spare their lives if they admit their defeat, and if Ryoichi had a good match against them. If his opponent is arrogant or rather, annoying, he won't hesitate to cut off their heads or slash them into million pieces by his own hands. Expected from cold-blooded person, he is not entirely one, as taking lives is not always a good thing to do, even if he is taught to take one's life.= Brave = :
As brave as he can be, he is not afraid to take risks at all, even if that risk were to bet his life away to do so. He is not afraid of anything, well, ALMOST everything. There's only three things that he is afraid of, and that is having his sister's life being at risk, his comrades' lives being at risk, and his family's lives are at risk. Ryoichi is not afraid of having his life taken, since in the past, he had been forced to take many innocent lives to furthur up his training, and he knew that it is a retribution from the lives that he had taken when he was young, and he deserved it. Even if there is many dead bodies in front of him, he can, surprisingly, keep his emotions calm and clear, despite that he had seen many dead bodies in his past lives before, which made him less afraid of them.= Silent = :
Ryoichi can be a very quiet and a peaceful man when it comes to work. Being silent can also help him during his assassination, and he keeps his voice as low as possible, and footsteps as quiet as possible. He seems to be a solitary person despite how quiet he is and avoids many conversation but an exception of a meeting and a request for assassinations. He will not be involved in any other conversations than those. Even if Ryoichi's silent all the time, he can be an open person around his sister, Kristya in many situations. However, an open side of him can hardly be seen by most shinigamis and squads that has been around him for quite a long time, despite that he is not a person to get along with easily, and that side can only be seen by his own family. The 'silent' part of him might be the cause of the loss of Ryoichi's sister, Kristya during his human life, since her 'death' was unacceptable for Ryoichi when he was a human, and kept him a solitary man ever since he had his first step into the Soul Society.= Life On The Line = :
Although he is known to be a less sociable person, Ryoichi's a protective man, and ready to put his life on the line to protect his comrades at all costs, especially those that aren't involved within the cause and matter of everything. Even if he knows that he can't save everything, or everyone, he could try his best to save as many as he could, even if it requires him to use all of his remaining energy to do it. Putting himself in a risk wasn't actually a big deal for Ryoichi, although he do not know either he will survive or actually vanish from the world. One thing he knows, that he will not let his comrades just die with regrets. He will avenge them, and he is all ready to bet his own soul and blade, together with his life, to avenge anyone that the enemy killed.= Assassinations = :
For some reason, assassinations has become part of Ryoichi's hobbies and part times, as he keeps his target's death smoothly and quietly. But, when it comes to requests for assassinations, he hopes for his reward to be high, and enough to keep him filled and watered. He keeps his assassinations carefully, and also answers request carefully as well. Because of his constant assassinations, he can take out many targets quietly, and alone wihout any backups, and other than that, he prefers to take them out within the darkness.• Likes:
Assassination Requests, Kristya, Kurai [ Zanpakutō Spirit ], His Comrades, Family, Darkness.• Dislikes:
His Enemies, Those who threatens the Squad 2, Being brought up into a conversation for no reason, being lied to.
I. Sealed Powers • Reiatsu Color:
The Color of his Reiatsu is mixture of both Black and Red. The red-colored reiatsu was originally Ryoichi's main spiritual power, but for some reason, when his soul was fused together with his Zanpakutō spirit, and caused his reiatsu to have mixture of black and red reiatsu, which makes things a bit more creepy.• Zanpakutô Spirit Name:
Kurai shi [ Translated From Dark Death/Black Death ]• Zanpakutô Spirit Appearance:
Kurai takes the appearance of a young man despite being hundreds of years old, although he is known to be much older than Ryoichi, or before even Ryoichi was born in the world, but it remains a mystery about his age himself. He wears black and tan robes with gold trimmings and an open collar, along with a large, flowing white toga draped around his main body and across his chest. He has black hair that sticks upwards at the top, dark eyes and abnormally sharp canines. He also wears a circle-shaped necklace. His eyes becomes reddish color, with a black ring around his pupils when enraged by anyone, especially to those who he thinks is an enemy. This, somehow affects Ryoichi's eyes when Kurai himself is enraged within the inner world. The twin zanpakutos are hidden beneath his robe.
• Inner World:
Kurai's inner world is fairly simple. It has no light, and made out of complete darkness. There are no walls, but there is a ground that has an endless amount of distance can be reached. The complete darkness can be manipulated by Kurai to make anything he wants. He can make buildings and walls out of his will, or trees, even cars with his free will. But they all can be seen with white-colored lines with many different shapes, and the 'thing' that Kurai creates will always be black as its main color, causing the 'things' that Kurai created can hardly being seen with a naked eye. This simple inner world makes the battle much dangerous for those who intrudes, or when Ryoichi enters.• Sealed Zanpakutô Apperance :
Ryoichi's twin zanpakutos has the complete same appearance of an ordinary black Zanpakutō, with its constant release of small bits of spiritual energy all over from the blades once it is unsheathed. It has crimson lines across the blade. Oddly, the twin zanpakutos somehow has only one Zanpakutō spirit that owns both of the zanpakutos alone.• Sealed Zanpakutô Abilities: - Natural Abilities - := Black Energy = :
Black Energy, or a weaker version of DE, but Death Energy and Black Energy holds vast differences, as both powers are worlds apart from their similarity. Black Energy, or known as BE is an energy inherited from Kurai's spiritual power. For some mysterious reasons, Ryoichi's spiritual power and Kurai's spiritual power were mixed up together, and formed a powerful energy called Black Energy. This also holds a small similarity between Vizard and Black Energy, because Vizard has the mixture power of Shinigami and Hollow, Ryoichi's Black Energy is quite an odd power. Instead of holding the power of a hollow, it emits a strange aura that is even unknown to those are specialists about spiritual powers. The Black Energy's appearance can take many shapes and form, whether it would be a weapon, an orb or lightning. But, it does not use its attributes.
For an example, if he tries to summon a lightning, he could focus his spiritual energy into his fingers and fire out a line of black energy towards the sky, enabling him to summon the dark clouds and strike down a single black-colored lightning on his opponent, an exception that it does not cause an electrical shock like a normal lightning would, instead, it causes an explosion once hit. It means that Black Energy does not gain its attributes, but only its form is being used only. Because of that, it has its own advantages and disadvantages as well. The first advantage it has is that since Black Energy, or else BE, can manifest many forms of its own, it has its own set of custom abilities that even Ryoichi can't by himself, which allows him to be able to use many types of abilities during in his sealed form, making him a real dangerous weapon even if he did not enter his shikai. The second ability is that the Spiritual Power, BE, itself, grants him a major boost of his spiritual power, or overwhelming, which resulted him to seal away 85% of his spiritual powers with his bracelets. On the other note, the major boosts of his spiritual power once one of the bracelets is removed will give a few boosts to some of his own attributes as well.
His speed and strength will be doubled, and his abilities' strength and power will increase by double from average as well. The boost will be permanent once one of the bracelets are removed until it is being locked on his wrist once again. The third advantage is that he could reattach his lost limbs as long as his limbs is not furthur than 2 feets. The Black Energy will reach out to the detached limb and reattach his lost limb back to his body. If the detached limb cannot be found, he can create a limb entirely made out from his own spiritual energy, able to replace his lost limb for a short period of time. The spiritually-made limb can work normally like any other limbs do, and it can also feel pain as well.
The only exception that the spiritually-made limb does not bleed, and its spiritual power in the spiritually-made limb is weaker than the rest of his body. The final advantage is that he can actually revive from death, as in extreme rare cases, BUT
, once he is revived from death, there is no other time. Means that, reviving is ONCE IN HIS LIFETIME
use for him. Once he is dead, the Black Energy itself will purify his blood, and automatically boosting his spiritual power back to its original shape, which will force him to move him out from every thread he enters. It takes a day time to fully heal. If he loses some of his limbs, the black energy will reach out for the limbs no matter how far it is, and reattach themselves back to his own body, even the head itself.
If Ryoichi loses his heart, or even his brain, in special cases, they will be regenerated back, but these comes at a high price. Once his brain is regenerated, he will lose every single part, and bits of his memory, more like cleaning up his entire memory to a new, empty one. He will forget every abilities he learned, and he will also forget how to control his own powers, which will go berserk for every 2 posts. Not only that, regenerating/healing his 'important organs' [ Heart, Brain and etc. ], takes about 4 posts to fully regenerate to its original shape. While reattaching A
lost limb takes about a post to reattach, since the BE will immediately drag or pull his detached limb from its area at its maximum speed and attach itself back as soon as possible. While replacing his limbs needs 2 posts time, because the 'lost' limb has to absorb the particles of spiritual energy at its surroundings and the 'lost limb' will slowly be replaced by spiritually-made limb.
The Disadvantages is that Ryoichi has not fully mastered the Black Energy, which means his abilities will somehow be a little unstable when used. The other disadvantage would be that in every ability he uses, the amount of spiritual energy that will be taken from him will be random but this does not apply to all of his abilities, as some has its energy consumption amount being set. For not able to fully control and master the uses of Black Energy, would cause it to eat his spiritual energy at a random amount, again, this does not apply to all of his abilities. There are chances that it will eat all or almost every single of his spiritual energy when he uses one ability, but the results will be unknown. The third disadvantage would be that he is unable to regenerate his wounds, and he could only reattach his limbs. Means every wounds that he had inflicted cannot regenerate, and only be able to reattach or replace his limbs. It will not regenerate his spiritual energy as well. The last disadvantage is that Ryoichi's Black Energy, or also known as Black Reiryoku, which only Ryoichi can possess it, is his own life itself, which means if he were to empty his Black Energy/Black Spiritual Energy, he can lose his own life itself, which he must use it with cautious.
This ability is automatically turned on at all times. Be noted that Ryoichi and Kurai's soul is fused together into one, so there are chances that they might fight over one body to switch places. Their spiritual power will remain the same even if they switch places, because their spiritual power and soul is being fused into one, causing them to use the same energy and power as one. Although Zanpakutō Spirits and The Shinigami itself is already known as 'One Body and One Soul', Ryoichi is different. While Zanpakutō spirits lives within the Zanpakutō itself, Kurai, his Zanpakutō spirit fuses itself in Ryoichi's body, making Ryoichi's body becomes both his own and Kurai's physical body. Not only that, on another note, Ryoichi is allowed to use his Zanpakutō Spirit's abilities which Ryoichi does not possess and both Ryoichi and Kurai can control the Zanpakutō's powers at their own will, since both of their spiritual powers are in sync, and able to stably fuse their souls together wihout any problems. On a final note, the Black Energy was once a forbidden 'natural ability' by the 'Kallen' Family, and Ryoichi seems to be the only descendant that can obtain this special ability that none other could have, and there is a chance that Ryoichi can lose his own life if he were to finish up his 'Black' Spiritual Energy.= Darkness Manipulation = :
While his younger sister, Kristya, manipulates and uses Light element, Ryoichi is the opposite. He manipulates darkness that moves by his own will, and manifests forms which Black Energy allowed him to do when he manipulates the darkness. He does not seem to afraid of light, although he manipulates darkness and uses them as weapons. But instead, he liked them. Because if a light were to shine on a solid object, it could form a shadow behind the light, which it will give him the advantage to manipulate the darkness. The darkness itself also does not afraid of light, which makes light-based abilities useless against Ryoichi's shadows, which to be more specific, Light will not disperse or affect the shadows at all. BE [ Black Energy ], which unknownly caused the darkness that he manipulates or controls to developed an 'anti-body' [ Unexplainable Situation ] against light. Although it is not afraid of the light, it has a few weaknesses for his manipulation. When the shadow that Ryoichi manipulates is solified, it is unable to move and will become a solified object until the effects are being reversed by Ryoichi himself.
While the darkness manipulation allows Ryoichi to manipulate three 'seperate' darkness/shadow, no matter how big or small the shadow was, but the solification process becomes slower when the size of the darkness/shadow that he manipulates is as large as a stadium. It takes about one post to be solify a shadow that is as large as a stadium, but the solification process speed depends the size of a certain object. The smaller the object is, the quicker it can be solified. The shadow or darkness that he manipulates can move out
from the ground, wall or any objects that the shadow is moving onto, and be solified at the mid-air, allowing him to form spikes and many kinds of shape. He is allowed to manipulate it, but once a shadow or darkness is manipulated, it can become a solid object or a harmless air. When it becomes a solid object, the light that shines onto it won't form a shadow, since the darkness he manipulated is darkness itself, thus it won't form a shadow even if there is a presence of light, and it makes it hard to be detected by most people.
On the other note, his darkness cannot move when it is being solified. When it is non-solified, it does not have the ability to hurt anything or anyone, and able to move freely to anywhere. His manipulation with darkness can reach 2 miles away. Oddly, it does not take away any of his spiritual energy when he manipulates darkness and the darkness moves by his hands. His skills with manipulating darkness allows him to solify the darkness that he manipulates almost instantly, but an exception that the solification speed depends on the size of the darkness/shadow that Ryoichi manipulates.= Master Swordsmanship = :
The 'Kallen' Family had their swordsmanship passed down from generations to generations, and Ryoichi was able to master his swordsmanship at a young age, and able to weild a twin katana perfectly, although not completely perfect as there is possibilities that he could cause some errors during battle. However, his swordsmanship skills cannot be underestimated, as he can unsheathe his blade in a quick speed, and can hardly be seen with a naked eye. His unsheathe speed can be so fast that his opponents thought he did not unsheathe his blade at all, or even notice that he slashed a wound on them. To be able to master twin katanas can be very tough for Ryoichi, since it requires a lot of work to able to use both effectively. Although he has master swordsmanship, Ryoichi can't seem to be able to accept and use a single katana instead of dual effectively, as it seems that he has problems with them.= Kidō = :
While Ryoichi has his own set of 'BSA' [ Black Shadow Arts ] abilities that are similiar to Kidō, Ryoichi has a little-to-no knowledge about Kidos, although he is able to use Kidō, both Bakudo and Hadō only up to 10. Despite that, he requires incantation for the Kidō he uses, but every Kidō he uses are seemingly weak, unable to affect anything at all, even against the weakest enemies. There is no explaination of why most of the Kidō, Hadō and Bakudo, he uses are extremely weak, capable of doing almost no harm against his enemies nor his allies at all, while his own 'Kidō-like' or abilities similiar to Kidō are much stronger than an average Kidō.= Monstrous Spiritual Power = :
His spiritual power, is certainly monstrous, that is able to reach to a much higher level than his original level, but because of the bracelets, it sealed away most part of his powers, making him much weaker than most seated shinigamis are. The origins of his spiritual power came from himself, and his Zanpakutō spirit. For some mysterious reasons from his past, Ryoichi accidentally had both of his spiritual power and his Zanpakutō spirit's spiritual power fused together, which result their souls being fused into one body as well and as well as it caused their fused spiritual power to created 'Black Energy'. It is 'rumored' that if he were to release his spiritual power at its maximum level, it can be beastly, and monstrous. With his released/unlocked spiritual power alone, he can send off shockwaves that is powerful enough to send off those are several tiers higher than his level to the air by just using his own palms.
Sadly, to prevent his spiritual power from leaking out like a tap water, which kill whoever humans that gets near him, he crafted his custom pair of bracelets and locked them on his wrists, and sealed off most of his spiritual power. The seal of the bracelets resulted him to be as weak as a Tier 4, but the 'Black Energy' supports his sealed body, which gave him the ability to use various of 'BE Ability' even though 85% of his spiritual power is sealed away by the bracelets. With one bracelet removed, his tier can rise up to two levels, but because the bracelet is a surpressor, once removed, anyone within the vicnicity of 10 feet wide can certainly feel an overwhelming spiritual power being released from his current location.
While with both bracelets removed, in rare cases, his tier can rise up to four levels, but most commonly his tier level is risen up to three levels from his current tier [ Example, if he were a 3-4, he becomes 3-1 ]. But, this 'power up' thing does not affect him if he was a Tier 0-2, instead, it puts him mostly within 0-2+ with one or both bracelets removed, and rarely, 0-2++. If he was an 0-2++ OR
0-2+, the bracelets removings won't do a single thing, an exception that it replenish most of his lost energies that he had used up within a fight.= Immense Speed = :
His speed is mainly one of his best attributes, although his speed could not match the fastest opponents like Shadin, Yoruichi and etc, but he is quite fast when it comes to speed. His speed does not only being used in running, walking and shunpo, it is also included his speed of sheathing and unsheating his Zanpakutō. His amazing speed could help during combats, and able to injure and hurt his opponents at an amazing speed. It cannot be seen by a naked eye when he unsheathes his Zanpakutō, since he could hit his opponent with his blade wihout his enemies noticing him to be pulling out his blade. But the afterimages of his blade can be seen during his rapid slash. His speed was able to rival against an advanced level shunpo user by running. He is mostly being mistaken to be using shunpo when he dissapears from one place to another whenever he runs. How he acquired the speed was actually inherited from his father and his Zanpakutō spirit.- Sealed/Kidō-like Abilities - :
The set of BSA [ Black Shadow Arts ] abilities are abilities that uses Black Energy to use on. Black Energy and a normal, average spiritual energy is different from their specific categories and strength. While spiritual energy or via Reiryoku, provides power for the user to use and does not 'kill' the user when he/she runs out of reiryoku/spiritual energy, and what Ryoichi possesses does. The Black Energy is Ryoichi's life, which it can eventually take his life if he were to finish up his spiritual energy, but BE grants him the power to use various sets of powerful abilities that is capable to destroying a large town, although it consumes a large amount of energy from Ryoichi's body. Although BE is a destructive energy that can be used on his enemies, it is also capable of giving both boosts and negative effects for himself and his allies, which will be explained later. Some abilities requires him to summon a symbol to be able to summon that certain ability, and some does not require it. The appearance of the symbol can be seen below:
= Black Shadow Arts: Black Blast = :
As original as it is, it allows him to summon a blast of energy made out of complete darkness. To be able to summon the blast, Ryoichi reaches out his hand wide open, and a symbol would be summoned on the front of his palm. Spiritual particles would gather in the middle of the symbol at an extreme speed and a blast of darkness would be fired from the symbol in almost an instant speed. The blast's power is somehow destructive and powerful enough to tear a road apart with a single shot of blast. Its energy consumption is random. It can be shot off 300 meters away. A direct hit from the blast can result major wounds and damage on his opponents, that's what a Black Blast can result. On the other note, because the blast's high recoil and power, it can be unstable for Ryoichi to use as well, which means its accuracy is much lower and a hit chance would be 46%, but its destructive power cannot be imagined as it is enough to tear off a large apartment with a single fire. There are half of the chances that Ryoichi can hit himself with the blast, since the Black Energy is still unstable for him. 1 Post cooldown after usage. Its destruction power can take away 1/2 of his spiritual energy in one usage. It is stoppable by those with master strength and master durability or/and hierro. The opponent can also be protected by any Bakudo #70
and higher. Any bakudos that are lower than #70
will be shattered by the blast and be broken through.= Black Shadow Arts: Black Rain = :
The Black Rain does its job perfectly, as it allows Ryoichi to summon a large symbol on the sky and releases a rain of dark energies from the symbol. The rain is heavy enough to bring down a small area with a large hole on it. This could drain a significant amount of spiritual energy off from Ryoichi, although it won't be draining that much if his spiritual power weren't sealed off. This ability is quite tiring to use, although it is quick and effective to use against his opponents. One use is enough to take out a large number of shinigamis [ Seated Levels or Lower ] almost quickly as the symbol he summoned could rain down millions of spiritual energies that blasts down towards his enemies. To summon the Black Rain, Ryoichi reaches out his index finger of his right hand and a small symbol appears in front of his finger. Another symbol would slowly form and manifest at the sky of a designated area where he wants to summon it. It takes about 2 posts to fully form the symbol and begin to rain down millions of spiritual energies. During the formation of the symbol, his enemies can use their time to attack Ryoichi to stop the summoning of the spell or running away from the range of the attack. The symbol that he creates is 10 miles wide, and it is something that is very hard to achieve by most users who attempts to create something so big, but it can drain almost every bit Ryoichi has to complete the entire cycle of the ability, which makes this ability a risk to take to be able to use it. On the other note, if Ryoichi is stopped from the using the ability, or being stopped during the process of summoning the symbol, 1/2 of his spiritual energy will be returned from the ability, while the other 1/2 of the original usage of spiritual energy required to use the ability will be gone like it was nothing. So, being stopped from using the ability is something that Ryoichi did not want it to happen, since 1/2 of his spiritual energy will be gone to waste if he were to be stopped by anyone from using this ability.= Black Shadow Arts: Black Line = :
As fairly simple ability that does not consume much of his spiritual energy, this ability allows him to cast a line of concentrated black energy, and holds similarity with Hadō #4
, Byakurai, but more accurate version of it, as it could hit the target directly if it is aimed properly. To use this ability, Ryoichi reaches out both of his middle finger and index finger of his left hand, pointing it at his intended target, and a small symbol would appear in front of both of the fingers. Ryoichi would gather up high-density spiritual energy from both of his surroundings and from himself. The time to take to gather up takes almost an instant, and he can discharge a line of black energy instead of a concentrated lightning bolt from the symbol. The line of concentrated black energy could pierce through most commonly used or known defenses, which especially against those with advanced durability/hierro or lower. But it fails against Negacion barriers and unknown Kidō barriers or above Bakudo #50
. The concentrated black energy fired from the symbol goes in a straight line, and it cannot be affected by gravity. It goes about 2 miles away, which make this a bit useful in some situations. It requires a post to cooldown to be able to reuse the ability. It seems to consume a small partial of his spiritual energy.= Black Shadow Arts: Black Sheild = :
A fairly simple ability that allows Ryoichi to summon a sheild that last for one post before it is put out. It uses the symbol itself instead of creating one, allowing the symbol to protect him from most kinds of danger, excluding Gran Rey Cero-level powered abilities and above that level, which those kinds of attacks can instantly go through his sheild and hit him directly. The sheild can protect him from any offensive attacks that is lower than Gran Rey Cero, except the sheild shatters easily. Once an ability, Physical and Non-Physical abilities, makes contact with the sheild, it negates its elements and spiritual energy that is channeled within that certain ability, making it only raw physical strength the only way to go through the Black Sheild. No weak physical strength will work against his sheild, and only those has raw strength like Kenpachi can shatter his sheild with ease. To summon the symbol, 3 of his fingers, index finger, middle finger and ring finger reaches out of his right hand, and channels the spiritual energy into the three fingers, thus summoning the symbol in front of the fingers. The sheild is 2 times the size of his height, but it breaks easily. Once an ability is negated by the sheild, it will shatter into million pieces, which means the sheild can only protect him from one attack, or more if the rest of the abilities hits the sheild at the same time. Once per post use, and one post cooldown before reuse.= Black Shadow Arts: Black Clone = :
This requires 1/2 of his spiritual energy and a few posts to actually create another him. This does not require him to summon a symbol to create himself, instead, it requires him to manipulate his own shadows to create the 'other him'. Once he uses his own shadow to create the doppelganger, the doppelganger itself will have the mind of its own, and the doppelganger can have every emotions that a basic human has, and has every Ryoichi's ability, except having the power to manipulate darkness and using Black Energy. It has every same attributes that Ryoichi has, except it has an entirely different personality that Ryoichi has, almost the opposite version of Ryoichi. The doppelganger he creates is nothing except a shadow of Ryoichi. It has clothes, which is non-visible as the Black Ryoichi [ The Doppelganger ] is Ryoichi's shadow. The only visible appearance that can be found on Black Ryoichi is his eyes that is bloody red-colored and glows all the time.
The Black Ryoichi is unable to use Black Energy Arts as it has no access to Black Energy at all. Instead, it uses the 'Shadow Zanpakutō' that can deal an equal damage physically that Ryoichi can with his Zanpakutō. On the other hand, the Black Ryoichi consists the same spiritual power that Ryoichi has, since Ryoichi's spiritual power was split in half to create the 'other him', which can make things really complicated for his opponent to figure out which is real, but again, if the opponent's smart enough, the appearance of his doppelganger is nothing but a mere shadow and made out of darkness, and can be figured out almost instantly.The Doppelganger, however will only last for 2 posts. To summon the doppelganger, Ryoichi has to manipulate his own shadow and forcefully pulling his shadow out and turn it into his own shape, but it requires a long duration of time to be able to force his own shadow to manifest his own shape, mostly requires 3 posts to finish the entire cycle of the ability. Ryoichi can still fight during the process of this ability, except he has to delay it each time he fights. The ability can be delayed, and redo the process that stopped half-way. Once per thread use only.= Black Shadow Arts: Black Cage = :
Ryoichi's trap barrier, used specially in the worst conditions and dangerous conditions. It is also specially used for any opponents that is deemed as a dangerous threat that might bring harm to many people, and including those that are wanted by the Gotei 13. Seemingly that Black Cage ability is a high-level ability that is enough to sap 93% of Ryoichi's spiritual energy, this ability is only used in special conditions. To use the ability, he thrusts his palm on the ground, and a symbol would appear on the ground together with his palm, and another one would appear under his opponent. No matter how fast the opponent is, the symbols would keep appearing under the opponent or above, until it is caught, in exception that the ability can only reach 5 miles away to trap the opponent inside the cage. Once caught, 4 pillars would burst out from the corners of the symbol, and spiritually-made transparent walls will appear between the pillars, including from above.
The walls are an 'almost impenetratable' barriers, and can only be broken by those who has vast spiritual power similiar to kenpachi or stronger, or those that has master/Grand Master strength to be able to break through the barriers. Using Kidō or any energy-related abilities will not work within the barrier and it negates every energy-related attacks within the barrier. The only way to escape is either vast spiritual power or raw strength. Once per thread, and the cage will trap the enemy in one post time. Be aware that this ability requires a high risk for Ryoichi to use, as it takes away almost every bit of his spiritual energy. But the risk gets lower as the stronger he gets. Ryoichi is still a beginner with this ability and there might be unexplained consequences if an error were to happen during the process of the ability.= Black Shadow Arts: Black Blade = :
A fairly simple ability to use and it can be used constantly wihout cooldown, due to its low damage and low energy consumption can sometimes be useful to Ryoichi's use. It does not require a symbol and it does not need much time to use. Ryoichi places his hands on both of his Zanpakutō's hilt, and the twin zanpakutos would be engulfed and covered by black reiatsu, and unsheathes both at the same in an extreme speed, which will not be visible to his enemy [ since his unsheathing speed is so fast that it is almost impossible for his opponents to see him pulling out his blades from the cover ], and two waves of concentrated black reiatsu would also advance foward towards his enemy at an advanced speed, and those has equal or higher speed than advanced has 95% chances of dodging it with ease, lower than advanced will have 30% chances to be able to dodge it, and the only way to stop it is with their body or hands, which it is enough for tier 3s' to stop with their own hands, and tier 4s' with their zanpakutos.
Those has superhuman capabilities in any tiers [ including tier 6 that aren't shinigami, Arrancar or any races other than humans, they will have 50/50 chances to avoid from getting hit, or they can stop it with their bare hands wihout breaking a sweat. This is what makes this ability weak. He could send at a maximum 4 waves from his twin zanpakutos at a rapid speed. It does not require a cooldown, and it won't weaken its capability, except the waves are so weak that even a Tier 5 could stand a chance against it.= Black Shadow Arts: Black Sword = :
While Black Blade and Black Sword has almost the same names, they are used differently. Black Sword is used when Ryoichi's Zanpakutō is broken or lost, which he can summon his own 'shadow' Zanpakutō that replaces his broken/lost Zanpakutō for a temporary time until it is fixed or found. There is nothing special about this ability, and it allows Ryoichi to use any ability, even if he weilds a 'shadow' Zanpakutō which takes an exact form as his original Zanpakutō would, except it is completely made out of darkness. He can summon at the maximum two 'shadow' zanpakutos at one use, but mostly he summons two 'shadow' zanpakutos instead of one since he is not capable of weilding one blade instead of two. He is only capable of manifesting the form of his own Zanpakutō and not others. This ability does not seem to consume much of his spiritual energy when used, and only takes a small partial of his spiritual energy. To summon ONE
'shadow' Zanpakutō, he reaches out with one of his hands and two symbols would appear, and goes away from each other or opening a space between the symbols, it quickly forms a Zanpakutō as it opens, whilst floating within the air before the 'shadow' Zanpakutō is fully formed.
After fully forming the 'shadow' Zanpakutō, both symbol fades and the 'shadow' Zanpakutō would begin to be affected by the gravity, which it will fall. While to summon TWIN/TWO
'shadow' zanpakutos, he reaches both of his hands out and two symbols would appear on both of his hands, and symbols would widen up the spaces by going away from each other. When the 'shadow' Zanpakutō is fully formed, the symbols would fade and they will be affected by gravity as well once the symbols fades. Even if the Zanpakutō is made out of complete darkness, it is solid and can be used in physical means and it can be as tough as his original Zanpakutō would, and has every single attribute that his normal Zanpakutō has, except the appearance itself. It can be used infinitely, in exception that it drains away a small bit of his spiritual energy from each time he summons one. However, this ability is rarely used by Ryoichi in combats and assassinations as he hardly loses his Zanpakutō or even breaks it, although it is commonly used during trainings. The process takes an instant summon, but it gets slower from every use. 1 post duration to summon a 'black Zanpakutō' will be added as in each time he summons one.= Black Shadow Arts: Rapid Slash = :
The only abiltiy that does damages opponent physically ONLY. It takes only a little part of Ryoichi's spiritual energy to perform this ability. It does not require any symbol, and only his twin zanpakutos' is related within this ability. To perform this, his body and Zanpakutō will emit small particles of black reiatsu and Ryoichi could move at an extreme speed with a single step. The opponent can visibly see Ryoichi pulling out both of his zanpakutos' slowly, but not his slashes. Once both blades are unsheathed, he can rapidly deal over 100 slashes within a second with both of his zanpakutos, which ables him to hit his opponent at least more than once even if the rest of his slashes does not hit. This can be used repeatly, except it tires out his arms that does all the hackin' n' slashin'. Which the ability will be delayed for a post or two after three uses.= Black Shadow Arts: Black Strength = :
This is known to be part of his boost. It allows his designated allies/targets to have their physical strength boosted one skill up [ Beginner to Adept, Adept to Advanced, Advanced to Master and Master to Grand Master. While Grand Master will be boosted up to a higher level than the Grand Master itself ] while in exchange for the strength boost, their physical speed's skill, including Sonido, Shunpo and other speed based abilities will have its skill lowered down once [ Grand Master to Master, Master to Advanced, Advanced to Adept and Adept to Beginner. Those that has beginner speed will have their speed deducted to speed slower than beginners, but still capable of moving, walking and running ]. To use this ability, Ryoichi places his palm onto the ground and a symbol would appear in front of his palm, and the rest of the symbols would appear under his designated allies/targets. The symbols on his palm and under his allies/targets would glow red.
After a few seconds, all the symbols summoned will fade away. The effects of the boosts will last for 3 posts. While the effecs are still on, his allies/targets will feel a boost of energy flowing inside them, and its because their strength is boosted by adding an additional spiritual energy inside their body, or via Black Energy. Ryoichi's Black Energy isn't allowed to stay in the other host's body and will only stay inside the 'other' host for a set amount of time, and once the effects are gone, the BE itself will fade away from the 'other' host's body. It can be used on hundreds of targets at one use. It can only be used three times in a thread. Each target he casts this boost on will drain slight amount of spiritual energy from him, means the more target he casts this boost on, the more energy will be used up from Ryoichi. Not only that, tier levels can also affect the amount of spiritual energy that is required to use the boosts on them.- Tier 6 - :
0.2% Spiritual Energy Consumed- Tier 5 - :
0.5% Spiritual Energy Consumed- Tier 4 - :
1% Spiritual Energy Consumed- Tier 3 - :
1.5% Spiritual Energy Consumed- Tier 2 - :
2% Spiritual Energy Consumed- Tier 1 - :

5% Spiritual Energy Consumed- Tier 0-3 and Higher - :
10% Spiritual Energy Consumed
To be noted that the amounts consumed are set at the same amount and will not be changed by any means.= Black Shadow Arts: Black Speed = :
An opposite version of Black Strength, but still remains a boost. Black Speed allows Ryoichi to increase their General Speed's skill, Shunpo's, and any speed-based abilities skill by one up, as stated from Beginner to Adept, Adept to Advanced and so on. While for Grand Masters, they will have their speed achieved faster than Grand Master itself. While with their speed increased, his/her physical strength will be decreased by one, Grand Master to Master, Master to Advanced and so on. For beginner strength, they will have their strength deducted to a lower level than the beginner itself, and there are chances that their strength will be as weak as a normal human. To use this ability uses the same steps as the Black Strength, except the symbol glows blue instead of red. When the designated allies/targets receives the effects from the Black Speed, they can feel that their body is slightly lighter than their normal weight, giving them more speed when their body is still in lightweight. Black energy is also used inside the target's body, except it stays within the 'other' host's body for a set amount of time, and fades away when the effect is gone. The BE will only alter their body's weight to a lighter scale in order to increase their speed by one level. The effect lasts for 3 posts, and can be used 3 times per thread. Its energy consumption amount is the same as the Black Strength, but will be listed below. Tier levels can still affect the amount of spiritual energy being used on.- Tier 6 - :
0.2% Spiritual Energy Consumed- Tier 5 - :
0.5% Spiritual Energy Consumed- Tier 4 - :
1% Spiritual Energy Consumed- Tier 3 - :
1.5% Spiritual Energy Consumed- Tier 2 - :
2% Spiritual Energy Consumed- Tier 1 - :
3.5% Spiritual Energy Consumed- Tier 0 - :
5% Spiritual Energy Consumed- Tier 0-3 and Higher - :
10% Spiritual Energy Consumed
Again, the amount of energy consumed in the list above will not change in any circumstances and will be set at the same amount.
