Subject Post 1Subject: Ringo Unabara [Approved 0-3] Wed May 22, 2013 1:47 pm
Name: Ringo Unabara 倫悟海 Age: Unknown Titles: The Jackal of the West 豺西 Marital Status: Single Affiliation Soul Society, Gotei 13, Zero Division Race: Shinigami Appearance: The Jackal of the West, a name given to him for two reasons really. His master is the man known as Jaeden Crow. His influence in the life of the young looking shinigami has had an impact on the Jackal. He wears a red kimono over his form instead of the custom one Shinigamis are always wearing. He wears a pair of tan pants normally, his sandels are the regular style for the period in Japan from which he hailed. He finds them comfortable and as a member of the legendary clan of the Unabara. He wears the symbol of the clan he was part of on the back of his kimono. The legend of his Clan is known simply by those who've hailed from the Legendary home of the murderers known as the Zarak District. Those who come from here know of the clan quite well, they are known for their sluaghtering prowess as some of the finest killers. It's been said that a swordsman is born of many threads by many of the best. But a killer, a slayer of men is known for only one purpose. Those in Zaraki called the Man-Slaying royalty Unabara. The clan was known for slaughter on levels that many could not ever imagine. Ringo bares the birthmark of a Jackal on his neck though it's normally hidden. The image of the Unabara Clan is circe similar to an apple. It appears to be bladed. A white and black symbol are seen in it at times. The clan is something most people don't know of these days so the symbol is of little consequence. Only those from the District or whom pay attention to such things would know of them. The other influence of the name is known as his clan, he has always considered himself far from the noble Wolf. He often comments on how his blood couldn't be noble for the amount of life he's slain. People whom understand the bloodshed that his sword has encountered believe him to be a true monster of the abyss. Jaeden his sensei called the style of swordsmanship he used an evil thing, that shouldn't exist in the world that is. But some evils are required by the world to do the deeds others cannot.
To describe the man many call a cold bloded killer in his past is hard to describe, He's a man that seems to have as many sides to him as their are worlds in this place we call life. He's got both a dark side and a nicer side to him. Shown when he was with Tia Harribel's home when he was lost and had forgotten the most important things in life, his name and where he was. She's allowed him to remain, despite the differnece of race he aided her in defending her home. He's given Jaeden his teacher aid when ever he could. At one point he aided him during the war that was going on between the clan. He did not seem to know who he was at the time however. He's spent time bumping into random people whom may know him while others may not. The Jackal of the West seemed to be homeless and wander around almost aimlessly. Ringo is called Pandora's Box by his teacher many times. Jaeden believes that he has a nature all his own that is something to be impressed by. Photon poisoning is something that he's lived with for a lengthy time. Every since he was young he's had this rare reiatsu type. Something that killed those around him who fought him even if they were careful at times. He fought some strong people and showed he had the nature to kill, to some extent he could be called a cold person who's unfeeling.
Tia Harribel: His relationship with the former Tercera Espada is odd, the two both have a firm respect some would say for one another. Ringo met her during a time when everything was black, he couldn't remember much of anything. He was still a very dangeorus man when he came across the Queen of Hueco Mundo in some cases. It's believed she gave him shelter to aid him in leaving their land. He defended her home several times, odd as it may sound Ringo felt like they were allies and wouldn't allow harm to come to her or her friends. No matter how much the underlings she had disliked him, they were quite vocal about it as well. He heard compliants to her more often then he did conversations with her and him. Ringo spent his time resting trying to reach out of the darkness that lingered inside of his heart and mind. When it was lost Ringo wasn't able to do much beyond simply waiting for his time there to come to a close.
Jaeden Crow: One of the few people who say their is a talent in this young man, Jaeden has claimed that his shunpo is impressive but when he taught the basics to Ringo. The boy became a genius of the likes this world has never seen. Jaeden though not the greatest swordsman claims their is an evil to the style wielded by Ringo. Jaeden's opinion of the young warrior is high, he only has praises to sing of him. He does believe Ringo was a killer at some point due to his style of swordsmanship. The artform seems almost like a death sentence when he begins fighting in earnest. Jaeden's ideals and training have helped Ringo step away from his older style. But may God help those that see Ringo's former art, for God's words remain that those who face it must be prepared to lose their lives. For that risk is something that is to come with such a dangerous and deadly form of sword play. Jaeden's experience has tempered the man Ringo even further then one could imagine.
Shisome: Though only breifly these two weren't friends or anything of the like. Shisome had encountered him during her time of youth. He and her played ball for a short time or something, his memories are hard to see through the fog. It causes him a great deal of pain when he attempts to see through the darkness of his past. Ringo isn't quite able to see through the shadows that linger within the truth that he cannot seem to be able to overcome in some cases. Ringo's eyes have been clouded by death for sometime, when he met the young Shisome as a child the two were both young at heart and trying things a different way. This meeting was just before he lost his memories, time and things of the like seemed to stand still around this woman. Despite his best efforts to remember her, Ringo remains unable to grasp at the shadow of the little girl whom once lingered in his thoughts. Shisome's personality was such that losing her wasn't possible completely.
Asmodeus: This relationship is one both of them most likely remember to the fullest extent. Some of the things that have happened to Ringo have been bad, but on the day that he and Asmodeus met things were different. The two shared a week perhaps several of just pleasure. Before he left and began wandering again, he wasn't sure of the impression he left on the being of lust. Though he was aware that the impression left was enough that Asmodeus has not denied a second encounter would be enjoyable. Though he met Ringo during the period of time when the man was lost and unable to find himself or his way. People do not know really about this, only Ringo and Asmodeus are aware of the incident as far as either one is aware. Ringo has little opinion on the matter, but some whispers in the dark are loud and echo on through the world. No one is quite sure if the two have on going fling or not, hell even Ringo is honest in saying he was enjoying it but things were required of him. Much to Asmodeus's displeasure.
Tiamat: The Sister of his teacher, Ringo couldn't forget her if he tried. And he has, the female is vocal and noisy but she has a warm personlity. If anyone tells her that he'd said it was would call them liars. She is hot headed at times in his experience, she used to treat him like a child he wasn't sure if it was hers or not. She also stripped him once or twice due to injuries, he noted in passive his sensei's sister was insane to some extent or perhaps just had a thing for naked men. Though some of it could be called medical, but he often wanted to ask her to restrain from removing his pants. After all his injury was on his chest, but seeing as that's where he wanted the injury to remain he kept quiet. Their relationship could be called almost brother and sister like to almost a motherly nature she treats him with. She scolded him if he over did it and did sometimes coddle him, but Tiamat to this day frightens Ringo slightly.
Tsuki: To say the Son of his teacher and him had a rival like nature wouldn't be far fetched at all. The two were almost like brothers in the way that the acted. Ringo stated that the only person allowed to defeat Tsuki is him, he doesn't count any loss but one to Tsuki. Grant it he does acknowledge the flaws to his game that cost him the win. But he and Tsuki hold an odd respect for one another. To somethings in the world they may be described as both the ultimate team and at the same time, they seem to be able to communicate without saying a word. This skill has always perplexed Jaeden to some extent, but the relationship he felt was good for both. It makes them push to defeat one another someday, so far the record is a draw between the two. It's hard to say where either one stands in terms of powers. The one thing that is sure is the Crow Clan has given alot to the development of the two boys and what happens in their future will be interesting.
Kisuke Urahara: Kisuke Urahara and he had an encounter when he was wounded. He does owe this man the return of his memories to, Kisuke helped him in so many ways. It's hard to describe, Kisuke found the problem of memory loss to this degree and Kisuke told him that he would experiment on him to bring it back. Because he saw it as an amusing diversion if nothing else. But instead of just letting him live there, Kisuke put him to work. He also trained him slightly to make up for it, Kisuke ddin't do this for long once he realized that the pieces of the puzzle were to far apart. He decided to design a device to train Ringo's shunpo skills, the device would let one use shunpo in a single location. The training basically has you go on a shunpo treadmill. Kisuke decided to use him to test inventions mostly, Ringo found it interesting and most of the time the training was so intense by the end of it Ringo fell over. Some people just consider this being a guina pig, but for him it was more.
Kakeru: Though known by few, Kakeru would be one of the ones who was aware of Ringo's biggest flaw. The man was an impressive swordsman but he was slow, so slow in fact that many escaped him. He had issues with speed since he was young, the fact is he didn't have much power or speed. But his reflexs and such made up for it, but after training with Kakeru and the others whom were kind enough to teach him. Not only was he fast, but he was considered one of the fastest people to exist. Ringo's powers are boosted by his Zanpakutō which is considered the second fastest in the Soul Societys time. The training he put in wasn't easy by any means, his time spent traveling without his memories was something that honed him even more. What the world seemed to be was more then anyone could ever imagine. He came from one place that so few would of expected a shining star to arrive. But the Light doesn't always symbolize justice, this is something Ringo shows fully wel. That the light can be darkened by the shadows.
Shunsui Kyoraku His only master that he said openly that he coudn't truly understand. Shunsui was an odd man when he taught him, he was making him do odd chores. Such as fetching sake and doing things like that. Then he would face him in a sword battle, to which Shunsui would beat him up. Though at the time he never realized what Shunsui was doing, his master seemed to encourage lazing around all day and doing nothing. Well for himself, he couldn't really define his time learning with Shunsui. Educationally wise, the man didn't pay much attention. But his helpful guidence did come in handy later on in life. When Ringo began to ponder back about things in his life. These sorts of things were what would linger on his mind for a while. But Shunsui encouraged him to live life, chase girls, enjoy his generations time in the sun. He also made it clear that he was retired, several times. It wasn't something that wasn't to casually put out. He also recalled him complaining that he didn't care for male partners frequently.
Shadin Yuudashi A teacher whom came only thanks to Kisuke Urahara, it's thanks to Kisuke that he didn't just die. He owes Kisuke for restoring his memories, the pain he endured everything. It seemed like testing at Kisuke's benefit. Kisuke brought him to the powerful man, the most powerful within the Karakura area as a matter of fact. Kisuke had figured everything out about Ringo and told Shadin the full report. Shadin agreed to train him, though his method for doing so was something that most hadn't seen. But the training was effective in such that results were a more in control Ringo. Not to mention with his memories on the way back to him. It looked as though a full recovery was bound to happen. Shadin Yuudashi played a big part in this, for he was just as big a genius as Kisuke. This was Ringo's opinion, grant it he never understood the methods to the madness. But it did make sense later on, this was the way things were. He does have a firm belief he owes Shadin for his help, this training was one to save his life.
Feraki: The meeting of her was odd, it was after he met Asmodeus in fact such a strange thing to happen to him. He'd been leaving when Asmodeus decided to switch out with the female it seemed, he was wearing all his clothing. But appeared to be in a great deal of pain, his body was in agony due in large part to the fact that he was suffering from Photon poisoning. It came from the natural energy he gave off, it is something he's learned to deal with. Feraki was one of the few people whom attempted to heal him, Ringo did feel ease for the first time in a while. But the poisoning wasn't something that would go away. Oddly enough it is through this most impressive and kind person that he was able to sleep easy for once in his life. He also met Kakeru through her, he was the reason why he can control his power now better then once before. Ringo's memories were lost still, but the battle for his life raged on.
Mayuko The female from his Division was someone whom he recently formed a relationship with, nothing romantic the female is far to frightening for such delusions. Mayuko did seem aware of his problem with his sickness, much like Captain Ukitake he did suffer from two things. A noisy woman and his sickness that will never kill him but limit him greatly. His endurance for pain was above most peoples, but his relationship with Mayuko is something odd. She would beat him for falling asleep fairly often and awaken him from his lovely naps, this is simply the way they are. Nothing more and nothing less.
The Falcon's Eye 隼目 This special implant was put into the form of Ringo for a single purpose, his speed after he got his training was so much his body and eyes couldn't keep up. This implant allows him to process the data going around him at a speed that will let him function in combat at extremely high speeds without losing sight of his target. The Falcon's Eye, is a device he's been using frequently since he got it. The implant has raised his senses and allows for a far great amount of speed and reflex then it used too. Ringo's full speed is something that some people cannot deny is fast. It was to the point he required this implant to do things, now this doesn't just function as an implant within his eyes and body allowing them to handle the stress of the speed he goes into. They allow him to follow fast people as well, it's why he was able to train with the people he did. It's the only thing he had going for him before he trained.
Exploding Step 爆発段 This move is something that Ringo came up with at the conclusion of training with Jaeden Crow. His teacher had also been working on a similar type of step, though Ringo took it further then his teacher had hoped. The clone is used mostly as a means to an end for Ringo, he doesn't like using the move as most of the time when he does use it. The enemy is normally wounded or dead from the explosion and he has gotten more then one foe with this. He claims the explosion and such take so much effort to set up, that once is his limit. But the truth is he just can't afford to put the energy into another one and doesn't believe people will fall for it twice. He limits it to once per thread only.
Photon Step フォトン段 THis step allows him to travel faster then the average Flash Step. The Photon Step comes from his Zanpakutō and the special type of Reiatsu that he contains within his body. This allows him to cover his form in the energy of Photon's and it let's him accelerate to a rate of speed that some would call unimaginable. This step is designed to be just a bit faster then a Flash Step. So it does allow him to fight at speeds that are to some extent insane. Ringo can perform this one rather freely, creating the photon step was something he decided to do on his own. The creation of Photon step opened a door, a door that he can go into that no other can follow down. Due to his Zanpakutō's powers he became a faster person then he ever was. His nature and attitude seem to conceal the fact he's fast most of the time fairly well, his Falcon's eyes help him use these speeds sfaely and the only thing left is to go further into the world of Flash.
Photon Double フォトン倍 This is a special clone that only people like him can make, those able to use and process photon energy are capable of using it freely. Ringo calls it one of his special trump cards, he's able to make this one and do as he pleases with it. THe clone when struck by an enemy lights up to a point of blinding and shocking his enemies. Those caught by this are normally blinded so much that no way to see is availble to them. Photon based clones are not to hard for him to make. These are among things he enjoy's using freqeuntly. Ringo does this for escapes and opening's those with sensitive vision are blinded. Those struck by the photon energy to some extent will feel a certain jolt through their body. Ringo claims this is just the beginning of his powers and those who play should be careful of the next boom he plans to bring into play. Photon doubles and steps are easy, but this next card is simple one hell of a boom to go out with.
Exploding Photon Step 爆フォトン The exploding Photon energy step is something he tries not to use when he can help it, depending on how much of a spread put into this power. A town could be taken out by it if he's not careful. The photon energy is both a curse and something he lived with for so long, he's built flash steps that are extremely powerful and dangerous. But his list has others beyond this, things learned from Jaeden Crow of the Vizard Corps. Jaeden's lessons did help him design these, but Kakeru's lessons helped him get the photon energy inside under control. His generation of it's particles would be considered highly dangerous, those who came into contact with this clone were majorly wounded and in some cases they did die. He only uses this once a thread, because depending on the amount of Photon Energy used to do it. He's not capable of using anymore of this power then before, he's considered a special case among his fellow Shinigami because of this power inside.
Tengu Step: This was his mentor's favorite step so of course he learned it. By waiting till contact the target bursts into crows that come at the enemy. This allows them to create the illusion generally speaking that the enemy is being swarmed by Crows. However in Ringo's case, it works slightly differently than his teachers. When Ringo performs the step he does wait for contact before it happens. However, his crows aren't illusions they are real and explode when they hit the enemy. They are kido that explodes upon contact, allowing him to make it an offensive and defensive move. This is what made Ringo special among the Unabara and Crow. That he was able to overlook his families nature and develop himself differently. To come out with a different point of view, while he does use a style from the Unabara. Ringo doesn't believe in using their Lotus or such things. As he finds them to be dishonorable of a swordsman. If he ever discarded that title he would certainly accept it. The Tengu Step can only be performed every two turns for him. The explosion is similar to a level 30 kido or a regular blast from Dragonball Z when they were smaller.
Photon Blast: Ringo brings the photon energy his body generates into his hand and brings it forward to fire at an enemy, letting the energy shoot forward and expand depending on the amount. He could take out several blocks with this attack, it should be noted though due to the poisoning this isn't something he can do every single time. People do forget about the sickness despite how impressive he is. Their is a change for someone to get the poisoning from this, his photon energy is something that is hard to avoid for most people whom come into contact with it. The energy is such that it's something that people can get sick from just being hit by it. Sometimes it will cause some effects, but this sickness is both his greatest weakness and strength. Ringo of course can fire these blasts at will from either hand, he tries to not do so when he can help it. Ringo's skills in the energy field while limited are some impressive feats.
Photon Laser: He's able to focus the photons into a laser based beam that comes from his eyes and fingers if desired. These things are able to fire through and pierce some beams, the power of his lasers and such are that they can be blasted through the persons skin if not careful. Ringo's lasers are bright and able to fly for a long distance before they stop, hitting some walls without a reason to stop. These lasers form many photons into a single point making them extremely dangerous and deadly. The use of Photon energy is something he does try to avoid if he can help it, but when fighting seriously he'll use all the energy he can. Photon lasers are known to be dangerous, he has killed with them before and brought about a small amount of death. This is more for a solo fight and is designed to fight a person in a one on one situation. Ringo has stated that while the photon laser is interesting for testing someone's reflex's he'd rather avoid it.
Photon Chains: The glowing photon's are able to be changed into a chain like form, he can wrap these around a target by moving his hands. Tightening the grip on the chains is done by closing his open hand into a fist. The number of chains will depend upon the size of the target, the chains do have a double purpose. He's able to detonate them and cause a fairly localized explosion on the person or object wrapped in the chains. It's possible for the target to suffer from Photon poisoning, similar to the one using them. These chains are a resort he uses when fighting with a partner and rarely when alone, he claims using his photon energy is something he would much rather avoid doing if he could help it at all. The use of the chains is simple, the size and strength of them depend on Ringo's power he put into them. Normally these are designed to be a double edged sword, Ringo's powers are such that using them is tough on him. The shackles are almost a truth he lives with.
Photon Armor:This move is so similar to shunko and it to some extent is, this is a move that he uses very very rarely. Because covering his body in photon energy is dangerous and extremely painful to him, though he is capable of ignoring the pain for a while. This armor does have some interesting effects. He combines it now and then with his Zanpakutō, though it does cause more damage to him because of him doing such. The armor increases his speed and strength, also giving him a small durability increase. The armor is capable of absorbing some impacts, as his own body is in pain somethings will harm him more then they would of due to this. However, all photon attacks while in this armor are tripled. The damage and output of them are increased drastically. Below is a list depending on tier on the increases given to him, after using this normally he is tired. Ringo claims this armor is both for him and against him. Something to use and avoid at all costs. This state lasts for Three turns.
Tier 5: No Benefit Tier 4: Strength Increase Tier 3: Speed and Strength Increase Tier 2: Speed and Strength Increase x2 Tier 1: Speed and Strength Increase x3 Tier 0: Speed and Strength Increase x4
Crows Fist カラス拳 This style is the one and only style within the forms of Ringo's hand to hand fighting style. Doing this is normally combined with Photon Armor when he decides to take things seriously. His hands are coated in a light lair of photon energy that he slowly wraps them in for each punch and impact. He covers his feet and hands with it. He's able to channel and coat any area of his body with this, releasing it upon impact with a persons body doing severe damage to them on both a level outside there body and within it doing some damage to organs within. He's able to select the type of impact before landing a punch, most enemies will figure out fairly quickly that his hakuda is extremely dangerous and to some levels should be avoided. Ringo's hands as he gets serious will glow brightly with Photon energy as he wraps it around the digits and knuckles of his hand on a far more intense level, beyond this he'll activate his photon armor and begin to use it's increases towards bringing his enemies to their knee's. Now these attacks are not just close range, he can extend and sometimes even make his enemy misjudge the distance to his attacks due to the bright glowing color his hand gives off. This allows him to throw attacks that are further away, the max range of his attacks within the Crow's fist are at 5 meters. He's able to extend them to that distance to do one of the two types of damage he's capable of producing. The inner damage is very severe compared to the other, though the other is still fairly bad. He's able to cause photon damage by reflecting the light of the photon through your skin almost like the sun light absorbed by the skin. The other is fairly normal with some burns on the outside, but again he must decide which type due to the required amount of photons to going inside being higher.
Tsurugi sono Rijekuto: Ringo wasn't an Unabara before and isn't now. He doesn't care for Unabara techniques or such things as he distances himself from them. The Sword that Rejects is a move used by Ringo's teacher Jaeden Crow. By learning under the foot of such a teacher he, of course, picked up on somethings. It is a very true statement in saying that Ringo is a strong warrior compared to his former teacher. He is extremely intelligent and a natural with training from several fine warriors. Being taught so well gave him time to improve upon using this move. His teacher was able to lock upArrancar Resurrections and Zanpakutō releases by using a certain type of reishi release frequency. Ringo has learned to do it as well but can only do it ten times a thread. And the shutdown lasts five turns per use. Allowing him to make the battle a pure fight of skill.
When using this move it is possible for a user to break out of the sealing on release. However, it costs more energy than normal to do so. For example, when releasing a Shikai level release it costs x2 the regular energy to do so. When doing a Bankai level Release it costs x3 the energy it normally would do so. And for a Shikokai level release, it costs x4 the energy it normally would. Once released the user can stay that way. However the Blade, if used again, will reject the powers of the release, making them cost more. So they go through energy far faster when fighting against the Blade that Rejects.
The Unlimited Blades: The Crow Clan practiced a rather special style that used an unseen blade. When they struck other blades would come out and attack the enemy. Ringo can only make five blades at a time for a single slash. However, he is capable of selecting the angle of attack they take. This allows him a great deal of control when performing it. What is interesting is that he is able to create the slashes and make some of the real and others fake. Ringo is able to make his enemy think an attack is coming from one way but has it be a feint. However, this does consume one of his slashes when he uses it. Ringo enjoyed the style that the Crows used for its purity of heart. This allowed him to enjoy sword fights even more. Ringo at the end of the day was a duelist who enjoyed nothing more. Crossing blades with a good enemy was the most interesting thing for him to have. By learning this form from his former teacher. He laid the groundwork for more.
The Drawback to this power is that over time the power of each swing grows more dull. The power would work something like this when used 100%, 80%, 60%, 40%, and finally, 20%. At the end of it the extra strikes get weaker and in the case of using a fake or a feint. It would look like this over all 100%. 80%, FAKE BLADE, 60%, 40%.
The Reaper's Edge 刈り取り機 エッジ Not many are aware of just how deadly a swordsman that Ringo is, he's shown a great amount of skill in simply designing a style that he has sworn to never use. The Reaper's Edge is a style designed with one thing in mind, killing his enemy at all costs. The Reaper's edge is designed to bring a foe down using all the moves of the style to form a dance of death, one that is so fluid and fast that some people cannot keep up with it. Using this dark sword art, he's become deadly and quick but due to the nature of the style. He's only said that he killed at the very lowest amount of 600 people with it. His clan's nature of killing those whom dare face them in Zaraki is something that some people will never forget about. This style is built around the speed of sound, that's the speed used in the style. Ringo openly says that only one thing is faster then him and that is a certain man's Zanpakutō. He's of course speaking of someone most will know, he claims his blade and body speed are set for death in this. Combining the facts that the Reaper's Edge was designed to slaughter hundreds and was called the Blade which brought people to death. Jaeden his sensei helped him make a newer sword style. The Reaper's Edge is only used when the desperate situation is needed to be brought forward. If used those who are close should be careful for his personality will change and the blood lust will be something that no one can deny. Ringo claims the evil of his old days haunts him when ever he decides to tap into the style that has yet to fail at slaying a man when such intent is put behind the evil style. Death comes for us all and this only aides it's cause.
Nameless 無名 This sword style holds no identity nor gimmick. The blade is pure and it's absolute swordsmanship, some of the best have noticed that this style has nothing to do with a style or a name. It's simply the living nature of what pure swordsmanship is. It works with his talents and skills as a warrior making them effective, while still quite capable of bursting to the speeds desired for his style. Ringo has shown a tremendous amount of talent in using this style. Nameless is capable of being acrobatic at times and other times it's high pace swordsmanship is deadly and something beautiful to watch. This art and in some cases is considered to be one of the finest things the eyes could behold if their last hours are upon them. Ringo's swordsmanship in Jaeden's words in this form is pure and hard to read. Their is no murderous intent or indication that he is aiming to kill. Simple harmony of the blade and wielder. Ringo has shown an understanding that goes beyond the usual understanding of swordsmanship. More then a word, more then an ideal. It's almost like breathing, living the way of the blade is something few can do. But many attempt, Ringo has in some aspects succeed in living by his Zanpakutō and using his ideals to be a stronger and more powerful man in the process. Nameless remains his main sword style, he's slain many with it. For the main reason that it's hard to read this style and it does show some signs of deception of the blade's location. The blade could appear to be going for a vertical slice, but end up coming from a horizontal one. Ringo has spent many hours meditating on what a swordsman means, what it means to wield a blade. The answer is one that few have come to, he believes that the sword is the truest expression of his soul. While it's in pain it is still something beautiful and almost like a dance to behold. Standing in the light, while it's shadow remains ever ready to kill those who get to close to the edge.
While training himself very hard, in this art form known as swordsmanship. He made a single goal to find a style without gimmick, because of that any attack he encounters of energy is able to be sliced now. He's learned how to cut the attack at it's weakest point, this style has developed into an art form. Known for it's power to cut through almost any attack, the blade's edge is far sharper then normally. And due to the mental nature of the person using it, the sword style is unpredictable. Meaning an attack from the left could be from the right, this style has no gimmick and is nothing but purity in sword play. Now because of the nature of this style in a mental and physical manner, he's able to use any move one can imagine almost. And make up moves on the fly, this allows him to adapt according to his enemy. This freedom in swordsmanship has made him an extremely dangerous user of the blade. Ringo is one who some claim has mastered what it means to be a swordsman, he's eager to test his skills against the best.
Photon Generation: Both his greatest strength and biggest weakness, due to the nature of his powers. He does suffer from a thing known as Photon sickness, making him very weak after fights sometimes. Due to the nature of how a fight is carried out. Ringo is able to generate Photon energy due to both his Zanpakutō and his body, this has been a problem since he was young. This generation was the reason he sought out Kisuke Urahara, it was due to them he'd become a powerful man. Despite not having a memory to speak of he did learn some control over it. Kisuke gave him a device so he could sleep peacefully, this of course had little to do with the fighting realm. More of his daily life and making it easier to live. The photon energy puts his physical speed and strength up by a naturally two. Making it far greater then what one would expect, Ringo is a man whom has little energy based attacks to work with. Now as stated before Ringo suffers from Photon poison and is sickly to a point where sometimes he's not well enough to go and do certain things. His body simply won't let him, so normally after a big battle he will stay out of the light and lay in bed. Letting Kisuke's special device fix his body and it's problems. As stated before this wasn't a combat device, just something to help him through the problem's of his life and being in pain constantly. Despite having a good pain resistance due to it, he's almost to a point now where the pain depending on how intense he can barely feel anymore. The constant pain had caused him to go numb to some extent, Photon poisoning is something both frightening and somehow making him stronger. If not for the photon energy he wouldn't be such an effective fighter as he is. Ringo's life is both being destroyed and saved by the very power that is within his body. It is because of this rare power that he is among the elite.
Increased Pain Endurance: Now to say he's used to pain would be one of the truths that lingers about him. For his strength to be what it is, he's considered extremely powerful. But he didn't get this because life was easy on him, he lived in constant pain and grew used to suffering a photon poisoning that has been making his body hurt for years. It wasn't till he met Kisuke that some relief was finally found, it wasn't great but the relief was there and he could fight without worrying how much pain he would be in later. Though in the old days he wasn't caring much about the pain he was in, this fact simply was his endurance playing it's large part in what some people would call a constant thing. Photon Energy is something dangerous is what was learned by Ringo. The energy that caused him such pain was both his savior and sometimes the very thing he cursed and wished he didn't have. Now days Ringo has claimed it's funny how fate works and with his life among other things.
Hakuda Expert: He doesn't claim to be a master in Hakuda by any means, Ringo is honest in saying that people better then him are out there. It's something he can acknowledge and be proud of, though he is fairly good at it. Able to defeat most weak enemies with just his hands. He does have talent in the field of Hakuda and most are well aware of the fact that Ringo is capable of doing it among some of the best. He never claims to be the best however, he's quite clear he prefers fighting with swords over the hand to hand styles. But he is capable of doing it, it's not something that most people find. He believes part of it comes from training with the many swordsman that he's trained himself with. Hakuda is something he's capable of but decides to use only on those he deems to weak to draw his blade on. To this extent he believes that his hand to hand skills are perhaps on par with some of the people he encounters. Ringo's skills however even here are very dangerous and deadly.
Shunpo Master: Ringo despite his tired looking appearance, is a very fast moving man. Able to catch up with some people whom most would have trouble with and fight them. He does admit that their are those way faster then he often. But he's a humble person and seems to not mind letting his people believe in him either. Ringo's quick no matter the argument being made, his shunpo moves are also all extremely dangerous. Due to the sheer nature of them, this allows him to fight at levels people wouldn't expect normally at all. Using his sword with Shunpo he's considered an extremely dangerous combatant to come across, he defends the Soul Society as though it is all he has. The Shunpo training he was put through has made him perhaps one of the best ones that has ever lived, despite not knowing how old he is. It's clear one thing may be said about the young man's speed and power. He's one of the most gifted Shinigami the Soul Society has ever been able to use.
Sword Master: Now though he denies this entirely, it's known that his swordsmanship is far above average and has been shown to be such that people need to be careful. Due to the natural talent he has, his rival of the Crow's Tsuki and his teacher are both points to be made that Ringo is a beast of a man, capable of doing things that most cannot. Ringo's skill and strength are a testament to his power as a warrior. But his swordsmanship is perhaps one of the most amazing things anyone has ever seen, it has no intent at all. Making it hard to read, at the same time he does have another style to fall on where the intent is obvious. It's clear that he plans on killing his enemies with fierce power making them pay for the pain they have delivered to his allies. His gifted swordsmanship has been noticed by several people whom trained him. From Kakeru to Jaeden, many talented swordsman have come forward and taught the young man the correct way to fight. However this is simply a fact that those who breath something become great.
Kidō/Energy Expert Despite him not being the type to use these sorts of things to often, he tends to be very good at them. He doesn't tap into Kidō very often if he can help it. But Ringo isn't like some people whom refuse to use Kidō, if it means saving one more life he will use a Kidō spell to do so. However if his own skills are enough to deal with the situation, Ringo will do it without the spells. Using his own strength as a means to an end. This is the way he's made his way so far, making the path forward something he can grasp hold of with his bare hands. Ringo doesn't care for Kidō much, but as stated before he will do whatever it takes to protect those around him from harm. Kidō isn't the only thing he can do, he's able to use the photon energy generated as a lethal weapon to kill those who foolishly believe him a single type of fighter. Ringo's energy is perhaps one of the few reason's that he's extremely dangerous.
The Demons Eye: The Crows all used special eye forms and were able to do wonderful things. Ringo often felt out place but was treated as a family more often than not. His eye wasn't even remotely close to what those people had in them. The Demons Eye which Ringo was known for had but one power. It was capable of predicting a second into the future. This allowed it to see the possible outcomes of a battle a second into the future. Letting Ringo sees the outcome of some things if they were done. However, it doesn't always give him an accurate read of it. Ringo must experience the pain of death when it predicts his demise. He gets to visually feel his death which allows him to awaken even more. This doesn't mean he can see moves he's not familiar with. But he does get a warning of his demise by an unseen means when it comes. Ringo's eye is potent and for the most part something that he developed. A desire to fit into the family more than anything else made it so. The draw back to this power is that prolonged use can cause damage on a psychological level. For example Ringo can see multiple future's at a time and not all of them are true. But if he uses the power too often he'll experience the pain mentally and his body will react as though it happened. Though no signs of physical damage occur outside everything with this power is mental based.
Mantra: Ringo is said to have perhaps the greatest Mantra of those who learned it. He is capable of sensing things far further away than most. His can extend to one hundred meters at it's most and can detect any movement. Any form of movement that comes out of its place. By doing this Ringo is able to detect shifts and movements. The longer the range, however, the less effect the radar is in close. Ringo generally keeps his set around the ten-meter range making it easier to detect. He's able to sense even muscle movements with this. Velocity is clear to him as he can calculate the movements of things to evade them easier. However just because he can detect something doesn't mean that Ringo can deal with it. He needs to know it's coming and be capable of reacting to it. Ringo's Mantra makes it extremely hard to sneak up on him. However, it doesn't make him invincible or able to not be snuck up on. If someone is fast enough they can move through the mantra without him having time to react. It comes down to them being quicker than he is all.
Photon Regulator: A device made by the wise and perhaps best inventor known as Kisuke Urahara. It was made for the simple purpose of regulating the amount of Photon's that generate from the body of Ringo. This isn't a combat based piece of equipment, it's something built to help him sleep at nights where he's in pain. Ringo's sleepless night's that were once a common fact that he couldn't escape no matter what he tried to do. His pain seemed to be something that never left him alone, the pain was a way of realizing that he was alive in some cases. The regulator was something designed to let him sleep, for all his weird methods. Kisuke did care that the boy he was teaching was thrashing in pain at night unable to rest due to how much pain he was in. So he designed a small object, something that Ringo has multiple of. It's a special bracelet he wears on his wrist when working on his daily life so he may live without being in pain. This bracelet regulates the photon energy around him thus allowing him to live somewhat peacefully.
The Oken The Ōken is revealed to be the power given to those chosen to become Royal Guard. The Soul King manifests the power into those individuals, therefore it is literally in their bones.
The Soul Society seemed to of fallen under attack yet again, things seemed to of been at a loss since the death of the Captain Commander. Ringo's eyes observed as he smiled faintly at the coming military that was coming towards the home of the Soul Reapers. It was interesting that people thought this place was so feeble a direct attack would work. Ringo's black shinigami robes began to flutter in the breeze, moving around as his brown hair did the same. He softly tapped his hand on the hilt of his Zanpakutō. "Oi..it's not very nice to invade a place without telling them you're coming...How are we supposed to.." He paused now for but a moment before he vanished again, leaving nothing as he appeared in front of them smiling softly as he stared at them. "Prepare a proper welcome party for such a vast group of invaders, I hope some of you are good..I would rather test my sword out on some fair enemies..Well..let's go." As they ran at him he began swaying and dodging, the people around him appeared to be moving in slow motion. How boring could this get, he was avoiding five of them effortlessly now as he observed them. "I see that's the best five can do..let me show you something..interesting." He shot forward instantly knocking the five out with little effort. He looked at the rest now smirking softly, he had an odd way about him. "Such nice weather, wouldn't want to spill blood would we? This will never do..you don't seem to understand how at a disadvantage you are.." Ringo's face didn't seem to lose the smile it had on it, he brought his arm up giving it a slash now. He left a small crater on the ground that looked as though the back hand left a mark on it. His eyes remained hard on the enemies.
"Sorry, but if my boss finds out I let you go..I'll be in trouble...I hope your ready to ...say good night." He pulled it out slowly, the kodachi he carried. The small sword seemed a bit odd for a man like him to use, it was shorter then a katana but longer then a dagger. It was a good defensive weapon that would allow a user to be extremely deadly. "Sorry but it's time to end this little game, Reveal yourself, Nanashi." As he activated his shikai around his body it began to glow brightly, something had just happened. Photon's began to come out far greater then before, his strength had gone up. As one person ran forward, he slashed down with his sword. Cutting through the large staff the man wielded, sending blood into the air. "It's no good now..I've released my Zanpakutō..Sorry..but I'll make you go softly." With those words he vanished seeming to move at speeds of which were off the charts, slicing and cutting into them almost like he was dancing upon the battle field. It wouldn't be long but each enemy was finally slain and the Soul Society safe yet again.

Subject Post 2Subject: Re: Ringo Unabara [Approved 0-3] Fri May 24, 2013 9:09 pm
Zanpakutō Name: Nanashi 無名 Shikai Name: Nanashi Tenshi 無名天使 (Nameless Angel) Bankai Name: Nanashi Akuryou 無名悪霊 (Nameless Demon) Shikokai Name: Nanashi Kami 無名神 (Nameless God) Zanpakutō Sex: Male Zanpakutō Shikai Release Command: Reveal yourself Nanashi Zanpakutō Spirit Appearance: The spirit of his Zanpakutō appears to be a male samurai. Wearing a blue haori over a white kimono, wearing the traditional sandals of the Edo period in Japan. The spirit appears to be of a youthful age and has two swords on it's waist, unlike the owner whom only has one. Both blades are Kodachis, it's something that most samurai did have. Nanashi seem's like a friendly spirit over all, keeping a good personality at most of the times when his counter part is a bit off. Nanashi is able to keep his owner's eyes open most of the time, sometimes they speak during an engagement about some odd topics. Nanashi for example has complained about him not having any good games inside his head. To which Ringo retorts, that who's ever heard of a Shinigami having games inside them, what is he a computer. This simple nature gives you an idea of how the two exist off one another, creating a balance that is rarely seen among some Soul Reapers and their swords. Nanashi wear's no symbols or signs of whom he was. Thus his name's meaning becomes clear, Nameless.
Zanpakutō Blade Appearance: The blade seems like an average kodachi, it's length is the normal size for a blade of this type. (60 Cm) The Guard is an average cross guard, the sheath itself has no images or anything special about it either. The Red strap around the hilt is wrapped around it to add an extra grip to the weapon. However no symbols or anything like that to give away any name to the blade seems to be clear on the weapon and way it's shown on it's wielder's hip. The weapon has nothing that stands out by it, in many respects it could pass for an average blade that very few people would acknowledge. Some people believe that due to the nature of the weapon, it's extremely average and never would of amounted to anything. However Ringo and Nanashi have gone further then what anyone would of expected the Photon Blade without a name to go, Nanashi's appearance and power were on two different levels.
Nanashi seems to be more warm and have less of a problem picking a side, but the blade does seem to resent that no one knows him. His power is always been under estimated to a point that even Ringo feel's it's insulting. Nanashi seems almost childish at times that people would not even acknowledge Nanashi. No one seems to understand what it feels like to be abandon and be that person that nobody can remember. The sword is sad at times and seems as big a puzzle as the wielder using it. Those who would try to reason with Nanashi had better remember his name first, otherwise he will coldly shut them down. Ringo seems to hold his sword almost like a close friend, he's able to communicate with on a level others cannot reach. These two lost souls seem to of found a kindred souls seem to of found a balance that very few have seen or come across. Ringo calls Nanashi the piece of a puzzle that is to big to live without, the two share a bond far greater then any romance or anything could describe. Nanashi never will say it, but he almost admires and to some extent loves Ringo for whom he is. He is willing to go to far lengths to help his master to succeed, because he knows deep down that Ringo has his interests at heart. That Ringo tries his best to make Nanashi the blade which was forgotten to the blade that no one shall ever forget again. Nanashi admits that without Ringo's natural powers he would of never been born and for that he's truly grateful. Nanashi and Ringo the two lost beings whom aim to make a mark on this world unlike anything ever seen. Nanashi has a single motivation and dream, he wishes to be known by all as the Greatest Zanpakutō that has ever lived. He won't accept anything less, this Zanpakutō has set his sights on the top and will never back down from the location he believes he belongs. To be the greatest Zanpakutō ever, he believes that only through Ringo shall it be so.
Zanpakutō Sealed Information
Increased Photon Generation: This is a power that comes passively through the blade Nanashi. Nanashi generates extra amounts of Photon Energy around the blade, causing the power of the swordsmanship Ringo uses to be far more effective. Ringo can control the amount of Photon energy that is being generated by his sword while in this form, using the photon energy he's able to cause large scale attacks or small ones. The control he has while in this form is what allows him to be extremely powerful and effective as a fighter. The photon energy at max power can cut through hundreds and doesn't seem likely that it will stop unless someone makes it. The increased photon generation around the Zanpakutō when held makes it a deadly weapon against both enemies and Ringo. Due to this generation his bodies already high amount is increased causing him some pain due to the poisoning he's had since a young age. But in some extent Nanashi helps him by using it up.
Zanpakutō Shikai Information:
Increased Spiritual Pressure: His spiritual pressure sky rockets when releasing his sword, sending his energy into another level. He's not often had to go past this state when using his shikai. The blade's power and increase to his states allow him a great deal of power to call upon when dealing with enemies whom could possibly cause him harm. The increase to his spiritual pressure is instant causing those to weak to sweat and feel fear that is so rarely felt by an enemy when dealing with one like Ringo. Ringo's power from Nanashi. Ringo's increased spiritual pressure is simply one thing that comes from releasing his monster of a Shikai, showing people truly how great Nanashi is when he does decide to let the blade out for people to see. Ringo's power and Nanashi seem like a formidable pair that no one expected from the blade. People believed it was Ringo's Genius at first strangely enough.
Increased Speed: His speed skyrockets as well showing signs that he truly does have speed to match some people whom may be greater then him. Ringo's able to move far faster when his shikai is activated. It gives him an almost instant increase in speed, despite what's it's power is the speed increase from his blade is something that cannot be denied by anyone whom has seen Ringo fight when he does let loose with his weapon. Nanashi and Ringp seem create a fast and deadly pair that isn't easy to deal with by any means of the word. Ringo's zanapktuo despite being average seems to have some rather strong prospects about it that make it far more dangerous then what one would expect of the weapon's extremely common nature.
Increased Strength: Ringo's strength is also increased greatly, making him one of the few people whom isn't just fast but extremely strong to back it up. Some people believe he may of been able to fight several of the strongest people when released his Zanpakutō, those without the proper will find their weapons broken like paper before him. Ringo's strength is something that is under estimated frequently due to his sickly nature. But people quickly learn it is no joke at all, he is perhaps one of the strongest men whom walk but don't stand among the Gods. Ringo's power is something in Shikai though in Bankai it's far worse then what his shikai can produce by a long shot. Nanashi is rather proud that Ringo has such great strength to use because of him, he often does brag this fact in Ringo's mind. Which to some extent is annoying but it's rather interesting to hear what the weapon has to say when it comes down to it. The power that Ringo is able to generate allows him to be a great deal stronger when releasing his shikai, this is but a stage to show them the beginning, the end is just near. Ringo's powers do increase for another reason soon to be shown to his enemies.
Shikai Appearance: When the blade activates into Shikai the first notable change is the glowing photons that come around both wielder and blade, despite these not doing anything because of the weapon. Nanashi isn't capable of attacking only his wielder is. So the weapon lacking any form of attack is considered by some a weak blade in other hands, the glowing light is bright enough to blind those caught looking directly at it. This allows the user of the weapon to be extremely deadly when using his swordsmanship and energy powers. The glow of the photon energy grows when the user decides to move and use his strength and speed. Using these things allows the glowing brightness of the Photon's to generate a good glow. However even this doesn't compare to the sizable nature of the growth the user will experience.
Shikai Powers: Nanashi is one of the very few Zanpakutō's that have no skills or powers really. All it does is generate two times the regular amount of photon's in the air causing the user to get a power upgrade. Had the user been anyone but RIngo it would of most likely simply killed them by accident, Nanashi's powers are dangerous for people to use. Now while the wielder is given a power upgrade depending on the tier. The only stats that Nanashi is able to increase are power and speed, making the user a far greater warrior. To some extent it's believed that Nanashi is capable of creating a photon warrior which cannot be stopped through normal means. The increases given will be listed below. The photon generation around the wield coats them in a large amount very similar to the armor. However the armor cannot compare with the glow around the user, this is purely from the Zanpakutō alone. Making the wielder a great weapon to fight along side Nanashi for as long as possible. As stated before if it wasn't for the fact that Ringo was wielding Nanashi, it most likely wouldn't work in the hands of anyone else. The generation of photons appears to be a white glow which is able to blind those looking at it, the many lights beginning to glow around the wielder's body allow them to feel an increase to the muscles and body. Giving them a great physical increase for a short time depending on the wielder. However for Ringo the increase is constant due to his resistance to photon energy. While it does hurt him a bit, it's nothing compared to when he didn't know how to control his powers. The increases to his strength and speed make him a deadly and almost impossible foe to deal with in some circumstances, his nickname from friends upon shikai. Is the White Shinigami of Death. This name came from his shikai alone and powers. These are just skill upgrades, if not ok I will fix.
Tier 3: + 7 to Speed and Strength Tier 2: + 8 to Speed and Strength Tier 1: + 9 to Speed and Strength Tier 0: +10 to Speed and Strength
Zanpakutō Bankai Information:
Vastly Increased Spiritual Pressure: Compared to Shikai when Ringo steps into the arena of his bankai, he's capable of amazing things within his bankai. The state of his mind when activating this form is often questioned because it appears he's ready to kill now. RIngo very rarely takes things this far when dealing with people. But when he does finally decide to do this. His spiritual pressure is crushing, he can easily measure up to a Captain's level of skill. His power and speed also do get a sizable increase as he isn't like the others whom Zanpakutos have a concept or a purpose of attack. Ringo's sword is basic and in some cases it's believed that he is a weaker enemy then others of the 7th Division. The unseated slouch does however show great prowess and power in his use of skills. His spiritual pressure is able to be felt from a great distance, to some extent he can be felt for miles away.
Vastly Increased Speed: Ringo is a man of speed, he's believed to be one of the fastest men whom wander this realm. His quick thinking and perhaps strange nature make him one of the greats. His bankai only strengthens the fact that he is fast. By giving him a sizable speed increase again, Ringo's speed is considered to be nearly untouchable in Bankai, very few Shinigami are capable of keeping the pace he sets. However their are those outside of the Shinigami who may not have any problems catching the male's impressive speed. But matching him blow for blow will not be easy, for not only is he fast. But he's immensely strong and capable of dealing damages to people that are on an insane level at times. Ringo's first comment when activating his Zanpakutō's bankai is normally. Not to blink, because you could very easily miss something important if you do. But this is only one side effect of his Zanpakutō's bankai, another exists with it and is equally deadly.
Vastly Increased Strength: The only other thing his Zanpakutō effectively increases is Ringo's strength, this makes him a lethal and deadly fighting weapon. Capable of killing people whom may out match him in strength normally without much problems, thinking about it in a logically manner isn't something that anyone would suggest to those attempting to understand what happens to him. Ringo's powers are considered rare and yet strange at the same time, for most Zanpakutō's grant their wielders something to work with. But Ringo's sword completely relies on the strength of Ringo to be effective, if it wasn't for him the weapon would most likely not of reached as far as it did. Nanashi would be the forgotten blade that nobody would ever of heard of. The strength he is capable of displaying is said to be immense, he can bust through doors with little trouble and in some cases cut clean into barriers and armors without much issue. But some do exist making it not quite possible.
Bankai Appearance: His Zanpakutō's appearance doesn't change again, but the aura around the user is now so bright looking at it is nearly impossible for those without the training to do so. It would be like looking at the sun if it was directly in front of your eyes, without the intense heat. Though the Photon's do give off some heat that if a person isn't careful can do some damage. His Zanpakutō and body are completely covered in the light of Photon energy, upon the bankai release this bright and almost untouchable light is powering up the body of the wielder. Those whom know enough about Ringo are aware the pure photon energy getting to be higher isn't good for his body. But again due to his resilience to the energy and such he's capable of ignoring the pain from it. Which allows him to fight using it as an increase to his powers and body. However he normally sleeps for several days afterwards of using his bankai. Ringo claims he's not just able to walk off using his bankai.
Bankai Powers: Once again his Zanpakutō defies the logic of the regular zanpakutos and shows it's power to be fierce with it's wielder, while not being able to throw out lighting. Or use ice, or perhaps other powers which most users would find benefiting of them and their skills. The Zanpakutō coat's it's user in so much Photon energy filling them inside and out to the point they glow. But the glow from the shikai is absolutely nothing compared to the one given off by the Bankai. Ringo takes in the light and the photon energy and because he's capable of using it unlike anyone else who's body would simply turn to ash from having this much in them. He can turn it into a weapon both projectile and otherwise, though this Zanpakutō has no means of doing so itself. It's simply capable of being a powerful weapon for it's user to tap into when ever Ringo needs. The extra strength and speed the bankai gives out will be listed below. This power is only the half way point, more awaits the lingering eyes. These are just skill upgrades, if not ok I will fix.
Tier: 1 +15 to Strength and Speed Tier: 0 +20 to Strength and Speed
Shikkoaki Appearance: Ringo hasn't had much occasion to use this yet. However upon activation of it, the entire area becomes a bright white. As photon's fill the area blinding most who look at him. Ringo's shikokai creates a glowing area that is able to blind most who look directly at it. It's like looking at the sun if it were right in front of you. Without the effects of heat, of course, it's merely very bright.The light is the least of concerns when it involves this power. Ringo's entire body is a glowing embodiment of Photonic energy and seems to give it off without trouble. Upon this activation, his sickness is taken away making the previous troubles vanish. He is able to freely use his photon powers without repercussion of the downsides. His sickness from the photon particles in his body is cured by using this. The Shikokai's glowing power coming from his body does have other purposes aside from just that. His Zanpakutō blade has turned into a lighthouse like the light that glows a great deal. This light can burn if it gets close to someone for too long. It's a highly focused amount of light around the blade's edge. The glow is similar to that of a magnifying glass focusing the light through its lens. It allows him to create a larger burn based on that.
Light Manipulation: While in his Shikokai he is able to completely bend Light to his will. Ringo previously could only use it for enhancement purposes. Making it a fairly weak and rather one method power. However now he is able to fully manipulate the light particles to their greatest potential. By doing this he is able to command them from his body to do impressive blasts. The feat of skills he has shown when using them is effective. Ringo is capable of producing objects or massive energy blasts. The manipulation depends on the creativity of Ringo mostly. However, he must be capable of doing the feat when he's using the power. Being cured of the sickness he has for a while allows him to fight in earnest. The real skill that comes from it is that all the light around his body and blade can be bent as well. He creates blades from his body or from the air around him. As stated previously though these are merely the beginning of what the Jackel can create.
Light Armor: This is an effective tool that Ringo often uses. He is able to create a light-based shield that isn't visible. The light uses it's reflective surface to not be visible for others. It is extremely hard to spot as the armor is designed to almost be unseen. It's more like a barrier that forms around his body and creates a defense. However defense isn't all the armor can be used for in its use. The defense of the armor is spread out generally and allows it to be broken through by stronger enemies. He can put all the armor into a single spot if desired however this does make it visible. As the layers are set on top of one another making the glow evident. The glow is bright enough to blind an enemy who looks directly into it. However hurting their eyes is only a temporary effect of looking at it. By bending the light he can attack from his defenses as well. Sending out blades or blasts of fair strength. How a misconception is that blasts and blades are all that light can do. Light is a very easily changed and can be soft as water or hard as concrete if decided so.

Subject Post 3Subject: Re: Ringo Unabara [Approved 0-3] Sun May 26, 2013 12:13 pm
A Jackal is Born - Time Among Crows
Not much is known about the Jackal of the West, one thing is clear though he was from the infamous Zaraki District. Where thieves, killers, and the monster himself came from. He was raised in a den of vipers, a clan known for putting a price on death. They would kill from Monday to Sunday and put another man down. Ringo had killed his first man at the young age of perhaps five by appearance. He was considered the strongest of the Unabara clan by his brother Karasu and his mother and father's opinion. One day however something happened, the clan was attacked and destroyed. It wasn't just one or two, Ringo was beaten bloody and left with no memories of his days. He was young yet as the blood trickled from his head. Ringo's memories flowing like the liquid, the last thing he saw was a White Haori with a symbol on it. His family had spent centuries killing people perhaps this was the fate of one who spent their entire lives killing came to an end. But a man happened to find him, just perhaps the only reason he lived. Ringo was saved from death due to the Crow Clan and their leader. Jaeden took interesting and wasn't the type to leave one to die even if a stranger. Ringo was naked when he awoke being tended to by a strange woman. Tiamat-san, Jaeden's sister was the one.
While he tried to focus on his memories, Ringo seemed to of lost everything but his name. For now anyways, he had a Zanpakutō and was quite capable of using the weapon. Jaeden was impressed by the swordsmanship he saw, he didn't test him out. He allowed his son to do so, Ringo wasn't sure why but never did question it himself. Ringo and Tsuki became rivals quickly, friends to a point and Ringo believed the only way they got their points across was with blades. Ringo's training continued for years it felt like, he suffered from a pain which did bring his Master some concern. Jaeden had spoken with his sister about it often. It seemed that his body generated photon energy, he was considered strange due to it. Ringo tried his best to deal with it and showed tremendous skill, Jaeden had been pushing him to change styles. And soon one was born that even Ringo didn't know existed within him, the lack of memories had made him into a lethal and practical swordsman. Not showing signs of a gimmick or some sort of signs that he needed anything but swordplay.
As his time with these wonderful people was coming to it's close, Ringo had developed into a young man. He left and much to Jaeden's displeasure he wasn't joining the Clan, he decided to go on his own and make a name for himself. His master wanted to protect him but understood the need to journey and become more. And only later would people know just how much more that Ringo would become, his swordplay was something some people would never forget. His eyes though they lacked any symbol or hope to them. Something seemed off about the young man as he wandered out into the desert, vanishing into one of the Rukongai Districts. He wouldn't turn up for years, RIngo's memory seemed to be slipping still. But one thing he could hold on too, his lessons. He'd built some impressive shunpo and swordsmanship up training with the Crow clan. His training was complete among them and now it was time to grow more, or so he thought.
Lost in the Desert
He got sucked into Hueco Mundo at some point, it's said he killed anyone whom dared show hostile intent against him. This wasn't something he took pride in, he did end up meeting someone out here. Two of them really, but the first one was a female Arrancar. Her name was Tia Harribel, she was something amazing and had such an impressive pressure. Absolutely beautiful, she wished to know his purpose here. He showed no hostile intent for he felt none, though no one would be able to tell with him truly if he meant to kill someone. He questioned her about where this place was and whom he was, this had become an issue that she allowed him to stay with her and the other three that accompanied her. He defended her home and wouldn't allow any harm to come to this place of peaceful rest. He killed anyone whom threatened the peace, much to the dislike of those noisy three arrancar females. His strength was something not able to be denied, he just slept mostly when he could.
He stayed with her for a while, no answer was brought forward by her on how to get out of this endless desert. Tia Harribel did try her best, but he thanked her for allowing him a comfortable resting place and left the female and her underlings. He wished he'd remained for the next person he met wouldn't just tire him out, they would physically drain him. He felt constant pain now, his body was strong and it wasn't long before a Lusting monster took notice. Asmodeus was it's name, the creature found him somewhere. Though he'd never know where it was when she slept with him to put it softly for those of a weaker nature. Ringo's body was in pain and he left and began to leave behind Asmodeus, his strength was feeble at the moment. He was extremely sick with Photon poisoning and anyone who knew a bit of healing would of been helpful, he then was introduced to something strange. Asmodeus changed, leaving him puzzled as a concerned female ran to him. She began treating his sickness, giving him some meds as well for comfort. Through this woman he was going to meet someone.
It was then he was introduced to Kakeru through Feraki, the female had introduced him to Kakeru. Whom after noticing Ringo's problems offered to teach him and help him learn to control the powerful Photon energy around him, Jaeden had helped him understand but Kakeru was going to take this to the next level. To a place that was almost impossible to imagine, the training was brutal and intense. Kakeru's sheer speed was something that he learned quickly not to blink if he wished to know where he was. Kakeru relocated him into a better realm, he wasn't sure of where he'd been taken. But whatever the case the place was strange to him. Kakeru noticed what his sister had, Photon Poisoning plagued him not letting him sleep at all. The Medicine was comforting some of his pain but it wasn't good if he needed to use his powers. RIngo hadn't yet regained his memories but soon he would.
Kakeru and Ringo had finished training finally, it seemed Kakeru had an idea. He claimed someone in Karakura would be able to help Ringo with his energy problem, Ringo was sent there and it is here that he learned what truth was.
The Karakura Madness
He came into the Karakura world through his teacher Kakeru, it was here things would come back. Puzzle pieces would fall together in a way that they hadn't for so long. He trained with his last master for several years, learning what it meant to be fast and what it meant to be a warrior. Kakeru showed him things that he didn't understand, it allowed him to form an opinion on what Justice should be. He was then sent here to help with a pain that he lived with. Kisuke Urahara was the next stop, he met the man whom took an interest not in him. But his condition as a Photon generator, his loss of memories had left him virtually unable to speak with his sword. He began training under Kisuke shortly after doing tests, Kisuke fought him once. It was a week long fighting, he was so sore and in such pain he couldn't move. Kisuke was testing his resolve and his powers.
It was during the training he became more aware, that his Zanpakutō's voice had been turned off. Kisuke began having him test devices out, most to see if he could lower the Photon generation around him. One device was a Shunpo Treadmill, it was such a strange thing but he trained his shunpo into a fine and deadly weapon. Kisuke was amused at the progress, he decided to train him in one more thing. He brought a out a doll and instructed him to stab his Zanpakutō into the object. He got to meet his Zanpakutō and begin learning, the training was three days of hell. He gained a tremendous amount of spiritual pressure from this type of training, the test his sword had selected was so tough on him. But it did help in the end, Nanashi had taught him how to better use Photo Energy and be ready to find things.
In those three days he spent training he learned about his sword, through the blade crossing with it. It was after this he'd only spent perhaps a year with Kisuke when Kisuke brought something forward. He'd designed a set of things that would allow him to sleep, Photon Regulations. But Kisuke had one more stop in mind, he brought him to Shadin Yuudashi. The greatest warrior of speed that existed, Ringo asked why. But Shadin didn't just train him, Ringo suffered through the most radical and tough training he would ever feel. Nothing Kisuke Urahara could put him through prepared him for Shadin Yuudashi. The man's speed was so insane, he learned and gained a good deal of fighting experience against the man. Shadin taught Ringo somethings by just letting him watch, he fought with this teacher on a daily basis. Shadin was perhaps one of the strongest Shinigami of this era. Learning from him was easy enough, the key was to watch and learn from seeing what his master did. Ringo's beliefs were tested and Shadin helped install into him what truth and justice were.
Shadin did one last thing when the training was done, he provided him a way back to the Soul Society. Letting him have a special Cybermind device to help him when moving, he noticed that Ringo couldn't see and had been clumsy at the high speeds he'd been able to attain. Upon arrival back in the Land of the Dead, it was here he got to see someone else. He would soon meet two people whom he'd never been able to really put a point on. Ringo wasn't aiming for anything special, Shunsui Kyoraku would be the one whom met him next. And it was through their encounter that the final pieces of the puzzle fell into place. Kisuke and Shadin both restored some memories for him and had done great work on the young reaper.
The Return of the Jackal
When he arrived he came into a situation, he rushed in and saved as many as he could. Shunsui Kyoraku seemed to know whom he was, it was through him that. He got a close look at his horrors, his will and ideals were challenged for the first time since he'd begun to remember. Shunsui told him that the past though dark and covered in blood. He could change his future, perhaps by joining the Gotei 13. It seemed like the only way he could do something, do something that would allow him to repent for the evil things he'd down to the people. Ringo wasn't a bad person, he was raised among it and thought it was normal. But through his journey, through the traveling and endless training not only mentally but even more physically. He became a different person from the stories original protagonist. His training had changed the direction of his life. Shunsui and him spoke only once and a while, but he ended up in Squad Seven. Where he would meet one final person, one last female to educate him on work and the value of not pissing her off. Or perhaps she simply was a sadist and had need of council, but it wasn't important for she would become something to protect.
Upon joining the Academy, he finished in one of the lowest times. He was considered a genius and a rare case as he already had a Zanpakutō. Of which he knew many things, but here he learned of the laws and many things. He studied and soon was put in as a member of Squad Seven, unseated. Though many acknowledged him as a Captain level fighter and sometimes perhaps higher. His stories began to become constant, his pain though never did go away, He'd learned to live with the Photon poisoning. For pain was a way of knowing you were alive, the way to tell what future was ahead. Mayuko was the female whom began to torture him, he would get smacked in the nuts and hit constantly. But oddly enough thanks to her he began to feel able to endure pain better. Now days one may ask where the Jackal is, he's normally sleeping around his Division or watching over the other members as though the Guardian of this Division. The future while uncertain is full of opening for the young Shinigami, and Destiny has been changed. Once a murderer without a cause and now a man willing to defend this place tooth and nail.
