Lycoris is known as 'Leech' and 'Vampire' as playful and spiteful names from others, even though she never once has sucked any blood in her life.•Gender/Sex:
She was born as a female and continues to carry herself as one.•Appearance Age:
She looks to be within highschool, being that around 16 years of age, perhaps can even push looking 18.•Age:
She is however; 167 years old.•Affiliation/Rank:
Gotei 13.•Appearance Description:
Ordinary. That's one simple word to describe her appearance to those who first meet her; even though she had her adorable charms of being ordinary, it still doesn't make someone instantly think of her being a trained killer. She had fair skin, but not fair enough to think that she isn't getting any sunlight or something is wrong with her diet; she also is of average weight meaning she's a healthy 167 year old. Her height is a tad higher than that of people her age, but it isn't anything to take note of and her thighs are reasonably proportioned to the rest of her body like most people of asian ethnicity. While her body shape is pretty modest making her breasts an average C cup; nothing too big to get in the way of her fighting, and nothing she can't use to distract perverts. She keeps her nails at a medium length and will be found either painting her nails over with a clear coat, or filling them whenever she is bored. Sometimes if she doesn't like a person she'll pull out her nail file just to annoy them and make them walk away from her.
Her hair isn't very long, she can tie it up and do very simple hair designs to it, but it doesn't goes past her mid back; she is very adamant about it. Once her hair start to grow longer than that or if she sees any split ends she will quickly cut off the pieces, but because of the frequent hair cutting every single time it grows, she never get split ends; which could give some girls reasons to be jealous. But other than the cut of hair, she has a pretty plain colour curiosity of her father and mother, of course. Her hair is a duller brown, sort of like bark on a tree or even some acorns; however her hair tends to soak up some of the sunlight giving it a natural coloured glow whenever she's been outside too long during the summers. Most likely cat napping. To go along with her hair colour, Lycoris also has eyes to match, and unlike most people whose eyes would slightly shift towards a different colour under certain strange conditions, her eyes never seemed to do that.
With all that in mind, she looks like a very ordinary person._________________________________PERSONALITY TRAITS•Sloping Personality:
A sloping personality is something that isn't even; her personality seems to be at an angle, and depending on how she is feeling or within a certain situation that angle will continue to shift. This is mainly another way of saying she can be considered an oxymoron of sorts, while one example which will be later on will be her laziness in which can be changed into being over active to a fault. You can't really keep her personality written down on a piece of paper and not expect it to change, through different people she interacts with and understanding of herself she'll adapt and change to suit her wishes accordingly.•Strange Laziness/Selective Perfectionist:
She is very lazy to the point of doing the most active thing to stay lazy. Even though she can understand a situation and try to make it down, she tends to think of everything is over complicated, a huge example of this is her schooling. She wanted to be a failure so she didn't have to keep up with her grade, hence her laziness talking; but her choice of doing this was doing the most work to get to it. Her strange laziness is a laughing matter at all and while she'd like to be sitting around she'll always be doing something with it. Now, this is when her selective perfectionism comes in, she doesn't like to do her best in everything, she tends to halfass things quite a bit when she figured out her 'simple' solution to being lazy, but on other things she goes over board with. Take for an example the length of her hair and her nails, those are things that don't really matter, but she is insulted with them; and they don't even make sense. Things that aren't really important are the things she wants to work extra hard for, she'd be the type that if he worked at a store she wouldn't care about the placement of merchandise, however if she were the customer she'd try her best to colour organize the lighters in rainbow formation.•Superb Liar and hiding potential:
Through her eight years of constant lying, she had found a new calling. She had done such a good job when it comes to lying that she feels if someone attached her to a polygraph she could tell the world that she was a male dog, and it will prove she's telling the truth. Controlling her heart rate and even her body posture when sending out these lies has now become second nature and unfortunately she'll sometimes forget why she'd lying in the first place. Since through all the years of pulling up a charade of hiding her potential she sometimes forgets it's okay to let loose and fight full on. Which is how she was able to graduate with the worst mark in her class, even though she could do so much better.•Secret Yandere:
This one isn't really important but it does show insight to how she views different things, so yes, she is a secret yandere, but what does that mean? It means that she tends to think towards one of these types but doesn't really act upon it, she'll easily crush on boys, and get defensive over people she finally made friends with, but she won't act on her impulses. Which is one of the main reasons why she enjoys fighting so much, acting on the built up impulses tends to help her keep cool headed. Though a yandere is a yandere and if she finds that special someone, she'll be forced to act herself.•Stored up Energy:
Even though she mostly acts the opposite, in reality she is a hyper girl and thinks she is the main protagonist of her story. Bubbly is one of describing her if you filled those bubbles with shots of adrenaline. She'll get over excited and react to things abnormally to certain situations, and much like her sloping personality this is greatly affected by it. People who throw her off, and even people of the same sex as her are the ones she has the hardest to understand, and find it awkward to be around. So even though she is a ball of energy, she'll drop down to being reserved, quiet and even shy when she feels uncomfortable.•Likes:
She likes sweets, Romance Manga, Sewing, Dolls, Napping, Fighting, Killing.•Dislikes:
She dislikes it when people are too talkative when she doesn't like them, she doesn't like it when people try to take her stuff, or try to touch her too much. She doesn't like it when people lie to much, she doesn't like it when people are too honest with themselves to the point of it being depressing. She doesn't like being forced to make choices in a situation, buts he doesn't like not having much choices. She doesn't like Black licorice. She doesn't chocolate ice cream or anything too chocolatey. She doesn't like to be creepily showered with gifts._________________________________BACKGROUND STORY•Human Years:
Much like her appearance everything about her growing up was pretty much the same. Her mother, very caring and loving was there for her whenever she tripped and hurt herself, her father being there to help scare off the monsters in the closet and under the bed. Both of them taking turns to read her a bedtime story and staying the night until she slept. It was the picture book family really; and when Lycoris's parents thought it was about time to have more children, her father decided it would be best to work even more hours so that his wife could stay home full time. Financially they were sound, even though her mother said home during her pregnancy, she still found the time to do small and simple tasks to sell for small cash. Lycoris was never alone; her mother was always home, her father even though coming home late, would slowly creep into her room to give her loving kisses and to tuck her in more comfortably. It was a secret from Dad that Lycoris would pretend to be asleep during these times; she fooled him every time.
Lycoris's showered attention slowly started to decline when her new brother was born; she loved him, but her parents were starting to get stressed because of him. Running around the sound, she tried her best to try and help her parents, and only getting small smiles and quiet pats on the head before they turned back to their fretting. It wasn't until her brother got older that the stress in the family begun to die down, but at this point Lycoris was reaching a point of maturity were most teenagers would start to act out. Rather than hurting her family by verbally abusing them or anything of the such she instead would start to engulf herself within her hobbies. The simple childish actions of ignoring her parents curfew or her bad habits becoming more apparent when she was starting to get late to school; were something her parents were prepared for. If someone were to look for something awful about her background story, they really aren't going to find it. Lycoris had understanding parents, ones that loved her, and her brother knew not to bug her much; so there wasn't really no need for something traumatizing to happen.
However the hobbies that Lycoris was something that doesn't seem to be dangerous on the surface; especially when the school girls are giggling to themselves about ghosts and demons. Yes, she got deeply involved with the paranormal world. They were a very real thing in our world; or as most people say. Lycoris didn't have the gift of vision and nor did many of the girls within her school; every time they brought things up about the monsters some of the children would get skittish and try to forceful change the subject for them, especially the teachers. This is just how she was publicly, she'd talk about it only when others were around; however not the case when she was the only one up in the house.
Have you ever heard of Alone Hide and Seek?
This story was being passed down more frequently, rumor had it that people really did die from it. Though from all the things that Lycoris has done up till this point bared no fruit; she was only going to assume this will be the same. She was wrong of course. Like every time she did paranormal stuff within the house she casually waited for all her family members to be sleeping; waiting until her father came home of course. She couldn't have her dad walking into one of her experiments, that would be awful. By now everyone should know how to set up for the Alone Hide and Seek, but just incase you were one of those people who were stuck underneath a rock; here are the rules. They vary from story to story, but many of the things will stay true; you find yourself a stuffed animal, you cut it open pull out it's stuffing, and fill it up with rice. Once you have refilled it you make sure to resew it back up with red thread, once everything is setup you place the doll within a room and tell it that you're 'it'. Once you thin it understood, you go ahead and stab the doll with something sharp, a kitchen knife or scissors are pretty good ideas; in Lycoris's was a knife. Once it's wounded you tell it that now it's 'it'; this is so it knows how to play the game. You then hide. Don't get caught. To end it you're supposed to put salt water into your mouth and spit on it; Lycoris didn't get a chance too.
Demons, monsters, ghost; they are all very real within this universe; and the unknowing Lycoris had brought a perfect window for a hollow to do it's business. She didn't remember much of the attack, but most people don't remember exactly how they died, but she didn't lose all her memories. She could remember a horrible voice almost like a grotesque animal before agony took over. By the time she was able to regain conscious she had already died, she pretty much woke up with her facing her own corpse in front of her; it was a surreal feeling of course, buts he couldn't tell if it was just the shock that kept her so calm. She had a eerie calmness when she checked the situation of her house, it was in shambles, and it was pretty quiet; at this point the hollow was already killed.
Unlike most people who get attacked, shinigamis aren't always there to dispose of them, but because of the area she lived in there were people specifically set to seek and kill them the moment they entered the city. She had that gut feeling; her family wasn't alive anymore, were they like her? The thought of it didn't really cause her to worry though, she was still strangely calm; no that was a lie, she was pretty excited. This was the world she wanted to be apart of, why wouldn't she be, she summoned something. There was a price to it of course, but isn't there for everything. The shinigami sent her to soul society shortly afterwards and she never got their name. Shame really.•Failing is Hard:
She couldn't find her parents on the other side; she couldn't find anyone from her family in fact. She thought maybe she'd at least find her grandmother, there goes for hoping. However being from this side there are some people who if they have to potential they can sign up to an amazing and exciting school. Why did Lycoris sign up? Why not. The opportunity was there, she must get free food and a place to live, sounds like a dream, plus since her death she never got to get that school girl life she always wanted.
Lycoris fortunately had potential, even though in her living life she barely had any spiritual awareness it seemed within her death she was very lucky to get something. That little something was what she needed to get accepted, where she would proceed to be the worse student imaginable. Her intentions were pure, however upon further discovery of the school; it wasn't anything she imagined it to be. She didn't seem to get a reverse harem started the moment she joined, and no-one seemed to be all that interested in her. Quite a let down, so while everyone tried their best to get the best marks, she instead felt like there was no point in doing that now. So putting her hard work into laziness she tried her hardest to stay within the bottom, but still reached the bare minimum to continue on with this school. She refused to let anyone see anything she learned, every time she was supposed to demonstrate she was purposefully fail; sometimes 'accidently' getting that perfect demonstration to still give her teachers some hope to keep her.
Every night was the time she really shined; while she knew no-one was around to see her secret training, the girl would try to practice and hone her skills, keeping her body fit and her mind ready for any test she needs to purposefully flunk. While everyone studied to get good marks, she had to know the right answers to get the wrong, she needed to know everything about the different Kido spells to make sure she knew how to mess them up. She needed all these things to stay a failure student; which was only the cherry on the cake is from all her late night studying and training it would make her exhausted enough to sleep through classes. A proud example of her 'laziness' She had kept it up pretty well for four years; though she was running out of things to learn. She was mainly interested in Kido and hoho; while the other subjects she'd just learn what she must, with these two specific subjects she'd try to learn and explore them in new and exciting ways.
Even though they were rusty she was creating her own spells, trying to figure out how to place her doll making skills into something useful for battle. The more she expressed herself the more she realised her Zanpakutō was taking on a form that was familiar to her. While others would run away from their human life, Lycoris fully accepted it, her tiny Zanpakutō was no exception; while other students ridiculed her for her 'kitchen knife' of a weapon, this was something that was the most useful for her.
So as the years steadily approached to the eighth she was getting word in the school trying to kick her out. How could she blame them, even though she was progressing far and beyond what most people would normally have, she had nothing to show for it. Beggars can't be choosers. So that only meant that she'd have to push herself just a tiny bit further, and by push herself it only meant showing some of her capabilities. Her last push was surely enough to get her to graduate without the prettiest of numbers; failures reaching the double digits and her successes barely getting close. Her almost boring school life was definitely one she'll remember._________________________________NATURAL ABILITIES•Special Reiatsu:
Because of the training she pushed herself through, she found that lots of people within the school had been using their Reiatsu in rather simple directions. Which was understandable wanting to reach a plane in which would pretty much be a taboo for a shinigami would make sense to anyone but her; she felt like she needed to make sure that her abilities could be able to effectively attack her opponents. That's when she trained both her mind, body and soul to be able to give her that cutting edge over other people. She is capable of sharpening her Reiatsu so much that it can inflict wounds on a victim's soul, however she has never found any way to make that wound permanent. She also found that even though she had sharpen her reiatsu that much, it can only cut the souls of other people when attached to her Zanpakutō, if she were to condense her Reiatsu around her hand per say; it would only make it sharp, nothing more. •Training:
Even though she doesn't look like she spent eight whole years constantly training her body days in and out. her hand to hand abilities aren't exactly the greatest especially when she has no partners, but through practicing by herself she can clearly be capable of blocking blows, and taking some if need be from growing both strength and durability in her legs and arms. During her time of training since she knew very well that her skills in Hakuda wouldn't be so great she wanted to find new and better ways to improve herself and help lower her guard on her opponents. These being her flexibility and her speed.
Lycoris's flexibility was something that she treasured a great deal, trying to push herself to her limits without ripping apart her muscles, because of this she is capable of bending herself in strange positions to get the better end of a situation or to confuse and stagger her enemies. Since her flexibility is great she has good control and understanding of her muscles and clear indication on how far they are capable of going, meaning she wouldn't try to push herself too hard during a battle as it can cause too serious damage.
Second thing she worked on the most was her speed, Lycoris's Zanpakutō is no bigger than that of a kitchen knife, giving her a huge disadvantage to other people with larger Zanpakutos. They are capable of fighting to mid to short range while she is forced to stay close. The training in her legs was there to help her move at alarming speeds that some would find difficult to follow, that's when her working out her arms comes in and slight flexibility. She needs to be able to attack very swiftly and multiple times before being able to back out once more, even though her wounds would never cut in too deeply while doing this, she'd be able to land several blows before they blink. Making her great for quick assassinations.•Crafted Kidos:
Bewilder, oh great gods. Shroud yourself in confusion and don't return empty handed.
This Kido was something crafted while staying within the school, kept in secret unless had to be used Lycoris mainly uses this ability to find someone to get a better advantage over them. How to cast the ability is that she had to bring her two fingers into the air, quickly etching out the kanji '霧' Kiri, or fog, into the air with a small portion of her reiatsu; while saying the incantations. From the kanji a grey fog will start to appear, obstructing vision as well as most sensing abilities within it; however doesn't cut it off completely. They'll be able to see small shadows within the mist and sense energy signatures as if they were far away or they were very weak. The fog is an area of effect and doesn't lock her opponents inside of it; it will stay up within ten posts, but the fifth post is when the fog's power starts to deteriorate, making it much easier for them to sense things and see. This will continue to decrease as the posts reach ten. The area of effect would have a radius of 25 meters, and this ability can only be refreshed after the first spell as completely worn off. Of course with everything said and done; while she's able to see in the fog, a person with a higher focus would have an easier time than others.Ningyō
Go on and Dance~ Children of emptiness learn yourself their ways.
To fully activate this kido is much more different than the other, rather than writing a kanji into the air, this kido was made almost in a tribute to her living life. Having an obsession of creating dolls in a way you'd set up for a game of alone hide and seek, Lycoris takes one of the dolls and places her DNA into it. This DNA can be of blood, saliva, hair, skin anything that belong physically to Lycoris, once added to the doll, she quickly stabs it with her Zanpakutō bring it to life. During the stabbing process she does donate 10% of her reiatsu, letting it use it to create the form it needs, and mimic her reiatsu levels. The form in which this doll takes will be identical to that of Lycoris, visually it will have the same abilities as her, and it will create a copy of her spiritual pressure. However this doll is harmless, even though it can attack none of the attacks will do anything, it would feel nothing more then wind passing through. The only way to destroy it is to incapacitate Lycoris or to destroy the doll within the copy's chest; this ability could potentially used to copy other people in the same manner, however Lycoris isn't strong enough nor has trained enough for something of the sorts. She can only control one clone at a time, and using this ability does take a portion of her reiatsu so she cannot use this recklessly. She also can only keep the doll up for about 10 posts if it wasn't killed in the process; t can only stay up that long because of the fact she doesn't have full control of its actions._________________________________ZANPAKUTÔ INFORMATION•Reiatsu Color:
To simple put and perhaps the most obvious her Reiatsu colour would be that of a blood red to a bright red.•Zanpakutô Spirit Name:
Kyuuketsuki.•Zanpakutô Spirit Appearance:
Her inner world isn't anything to show off, and is deeply connected to that of her Zanpakutō spirit, Kyuu-kun. Even though against his quick tempered nature and his violent tendencies, the world in which he resides in is one that would bring peace and calmness to someone. Forever it's seems to be stuck within a state of night, the moon reflecting that within the human world to a point. Even though it's forever in night it's nowhere near dark since there are millions of tiny fireflies everywhere within these flat fields. One could just lose themselves in thought just by laying down within the grass and staring into the sky, watching the every so often firefly buzz by your vision before perching on near by white flowers. This world isn't anything special, but it's nice to get lost in.•Sealed Zanpakutô Appearance:
Lycoris wasn't surprised to see that her Zanpakutō was way different then most people, it's shape and size was pretty much identical to that of a regular kitchen knife, ofcourse the blade being completely black with a red tinted bandages and wood covering the hilt. Even though it's size isn't too alarming since it's so light to her, it surely wouldn't slow her down meaning more cuts in the making.•Sealed Zanpakutô Abilities:
She only has one Zanpakutō ability and it's main purpose is to make her opponents bleed. Even though it's small her blade is covered in a thin layer of her reiatsu giving her a cutting edge into her victims, with each cut she makes she is severing their healing abilities and reverting it to that of a normal human. Because of her condensing her Reiatsu in such a manner, as mentioned before she can sharper her reiatsu on a different level then most people can reach; meaning her wounds inflict both a spiritual and physical wound on the target. The different plane she could cut onto is simple just one's soul; this doesn't leave any permanent effects of course, while their wounds are healing in their physical bodies their soul will heal as well. Of course depending on the strength of someone's regenerability it will require more cuts within the area, which means she'd have to land multiple blows over the first wound before it completely heals over. Another thing that should be added that her wounds can only affect the area she had cut. An example of this would be if she cut someone's upper arm, and their elbow gets stabbed on the terrain, the elbow would heal to their regen ability while the upper arm is healing at human speed. Once she has severed completely to whatever is causing their regeneration to that wound through one or multiple cuts, the attack will move onto phase two. She will once again have to land another blow onto the open wound; phase two is the real thing that makes her opponents bleed causing the coagulation in their blood to steadily drop making clotting very difficult. With any clotting in a person's blood closing the wound would be nearly impossible unless assisted by bandages and medical gear. In short they would start to bleed a lot, this is a temporary effect that will only last for a post each time she cuts into the wound. To further explain; for each cut, there will be an additional post of bleeding for them._________________________________SKILL SHEETSGeneral Skills
