I. Basic Information» Name:
Leviathan Shihōin» Alias:
95» Physical Age:
Gotei 13; Squad Three. Shihōin clan » Appearance Written:
Leviathan is a shinigami that is over 90 years of age but doesn’t quite look his age, even for shinigami standards. The shinigami stands at the height unusual height of 4ft 8in with a weight of 110 lbs. His height causes many people to assume that he is a child at first glance and his facial features do not help him either. Leviathan was blessed and cursed with rather young looking parents, giving him a terrible case of baby face with no real definite features to mark him as older than he actually looks. His skin tone is fair in color with no known scar tissue or blemishes on any part of his body and has rather smooth skin to boot. His eyes are a rare and beautiful chartreuse green that sparkle like no other once out under direct light. Leviathan’s hair is a great contrast compared to his chartreuse green colored eyes, being a light neon blue in color and is usually kept in Leviathan’s favorite messy hair style.
From Leviathan’s appearance alone, many would think that he has a rather fragile and puny body type that would be no good for fighting but it’s actually the opposite. While he does have the height of a human kid, most of his weight actually comes from the muscle that he has built over the years of his families training regime. If you were to remove his clothing one would be able too see the finely sculpted muscles.
When it comes to the attar for Leviathan Shihōin, he wears whatever he wants for the day but he does have three go to looks and chooses depending on his mood. His first and most favorite thing to wear is a navy blue colored shirt with matching navy blue shorts. Over this he typically wears a white lab coat with a surgical mask kept tucked under his chin. His second favorite would be his shinigami Shihakuso which is specially fitted to his body, as he does have a pretty small figure. » Appearance Image:
I. Personality» Personality:
”Nothing has such power to broaden the mind as the ability to investigate systematically and truly all that comes under thy observation in life. For the Love of Science:
- Marcus Aurelius
Leviathan is by all means of the word, a scientist. It is the first thing that he thinks of when he wakes in the morning and the last thing that he thinks about before going to bed. While Leviathan is already a very determined person, as when he wants something he will do whatever it takes to get it and this applies to all of his work. Even if no-one else The young shinigami has a love for exploring the depths of things he has no knowledge of, often showing a child like curiosity to things towards new things and how they work. Leviathan views his studies and experiment as his life and takes them very seriously. When he is working, nothing else exist besides what he is working on and will become highly upset if he is interrupted by something or someone.
Due to his highly curious nature, Leviathan has developed a quirk of liking things that most people normally wouldn’t. This is thanks to his scientist nature as he finds excitement in anything that he could potentially study or experiment on.The Quiet Analyzer:
Most who know Leviathan know that he is rather quiet and doesn’t speak unless he wants too or is replying to someone. This isn’t because he simply doesn’t want to bother with people, he is typically analyzing everything around him. When doing anything he first likes to analyze his setting, people, etc around him as he likes to prepare himself if anything would arise. His analytical nature even carries over into battle as he typically likes to observe and analyze his opponent so that he can scope out there strengths, weakness and more to see what the proper way to beat them are. Leviathan’s nature of analyzing before fighting keeps him from running into a battle hot headed and ill prepared like most as he knows that if he is not prepaid, it could cost him his life. Heavy Heart:
Before Leviathan had graduated from the academy his parents where murdered by a hollow. Due the terror he felt from the hollow and was rendered useless, he carries the weight of feeling as if it was his fault for their death. He typically buried himself into his studies to get his mind off of it but it always manages to creep up on him. Leviathan feels that if he wasn’t so weak and actually prepared for the attack, he could have saved them. This often leads him not wanting to get close to others, as he feels that he may not be able to protect them when the time comes. He is also afraid to loose anyone else close to him and the best way to do that for him is to forgo interaction all together. However the young Shihōin does seem to overcome this, as he does want to get to know the others around him, even if he never shows it.
I. History» History:
Leviathan’s story begins with a man named Ryūha Shihōin, a captain level shinigami who also happened to an important figure within the Shihōin family itself. While out one day in the Zaraki District, he ran into a female Shinigami named Mira who was three seconds from getting her head chopped off. After saving her and letting the assailant get away, Ryūha would often act as a body guard for Mira just incase the assassin came back to finish the job. The job of body guard soon became the position of lover as feeling sparked between the two. When the two got together and Ryūha moved her into the manor, many of the Shihōin members did not approve. They protested that the woman wasn’t even from a minor family she was raised in the Zaraki district. However Ryūha ignored them and eventually, after years together and marriage, Mira birthed Leviathan Shihōin.
The birth of Leviathan had not been celebrated as to many in the clan, including Ryūha’s own parents, because his mother wasn’t a noblewoman but a random dead soul who managed to become a shinigami. Despite everything, Leviathan was brought up as a rather happy child. He found most of his joy in tinkering with objects around the house or reading one of the many books from his fathers private study. The young soul’s training would begin very early and it would be advised by Ryūha himself. Ryūha would advise him in everything he knew, hoping that he could make his son into the Shihōin that the others didn’t think he was. It wasn’t odd too see Leviathan a bit battered and bruised after training from how hard his fathers regime was. If he was honest, Leviathan loathed some days as he knew that he would be working on his martial technique till his hands and arms went numb or practicing his Kido till his body crumbled from using all of his spirit energy. A testimony to how hard Leviathan trained and pushed himself was when he had managed to use the clans technique Shunko whilst still pretty young to other shinigami. Whilst the technique was not perfect and ready to be used in a fight right away, it was still something most wouldn’t have been able to achieve at his age.
One day Ryūha had drug Leviathan with him on some his shinigami duties, giving his son a slight taste of what he would be doing once he became one himself. One of his duties that day was to visit and help out the third division, as they had become short handed and would need his help. Leviathan was in pure Awh as he saw the laboratory of the research division and luckily for him, they were needed in the help of one of their major projects. Leviathan caught the attention of one of the division senior researchers named Ichiwa, as he saw the glee in his eyes and how he interacted in the lab setting going as far as to inviting Leviathan back whenever he wanted.
The young Shihōin did not hesitate to take Ichiwa up on his offer and soon, Leviathan could be seen with him quite often as Ichiwa would Behring teaching him everything that he knew from the sciences of the human world to dissecting living organisms. Leviathan has begun spending so much time in the squad three baracks with Ichiwa the members of the squad began seeing him as one of their own. When the time came for Leviathan to become a full fledged shinigami, he managed to get himself placed in the third squad and now was officially apart of the family.
One day, Ryūha asked Leviathan to be apart of a special mission given to him and his mother by the Gotei. While Leviathan was pretty hesitant at first, he eventually agreed to go. The mission was rather simple for Leviathan and his parents, as it was one of stealthy nature and he had been trained for years in stealth by his father. Everything was fine until a demon had somehow turned up and engaged his father in combat. Leviathan attempted to help his father who was being back up by his mother but the beast was too strong and managed to knock the boy out with one blow. When he awoke, he lay in the rubble of a building with a pounding headache and a battle torn surrounding. The first thing that he saw when picking himself up was the demon laying down on the ground dead. Happy that the demon was dead Leviathan searched for his parents in the rubble for but a few minutes before finding the body of both his parents. His mother Mira had lay with her head chopped off and his father had half his body ripped off. Seeing this sent him into a state of hysteria and had to be sedated when reinforcements arrived.
After the event, Leviathan changed as a person, he went from quiet to unusually quiet and began putting all of his time and effort into his work. He cut off ties with most of the friends he had made and kept to himself all together. Leviathan had barely been seen by anyone in the first year of their death, hiding himself in the manner as he grieved over losing his parents. After a few years had passed, Leviathan had come to deal with his parents death despite not fully getting over it but is still forever changed by the event.

I. Racial Techniques/Abilities/Skills» Racial Abilities: Hoho:
One of the skills that many of the Shihōin are known for are their skills in the art of Hohō and Leviathan is no exception to that. His father had put an extreme emphasis on this skill, causing Leviathan to dedicate a lot of his training time working on it. In general, Leviathan is very well versed in Hohō compared to most other shinigami. He can cross large distances within seconds and can remain undetected if one isn’t paying close attention to him. His use of the technique while fighting makes him a dangerous combatant, as his speed makes it hard for someone to hit him but it isn’t impossible to do so. Kido:
As the son of one of the Onmitsukido, Leviathan is very well versed in the use of Kido. He is proficient enough in the arts of Hadō and Bakudō to use low leveled spells with no incantation. Leviathan also has the ability to use spells in rapid succession without a problem. Over the years of studying kido, he has the knowledge and prowess to mix different spells together. The Shihōin typically combines his use of kido with his physical skills which can vastly increase his potency. Hakuda:
As Leviathan was trained by an high level Onmitsukido agent, one could say Leviathan has considerable prowess in the art of Hakuda. He can easily take down multiple armed opponents without a problem and can even take down someone who is many times his size. Leviathan actually prefers to use hand to hand combat when he does battle and can easily adapt his technique to his situation. Zanjutsu:
While not as skilled in Zanjutsu compared to Hakuda or Hohō, he is a capable swordsmen. He is able to use Zanjutsu enough to be able to hold out against an opponent for a while with his blade. However he would have a bit of trouble of trouble clashing with someone who is a more seasoned Zanjutsu user.
Shunko(Lightning): A powerful technique created by Yoruichi Shihōin that combines both the use of Hakuda and Kido. When combining the two Leviathan can increase his physical power by enhancing it with the kido and can even fire off the kido if he so wished. Leviathan was lucky enough to have a teacher who trained him to the point where he could learn Shunko. However the technique he uses is an incomplete version and is far from being the level of his cousin. When activating his shunko his body is covered in an aura of crackling white lightning. At his current level, Leviathan only sees a decent boost to both his strength and speed. Gravity Reiatsu:
Leviathan harbors a rather unique type of reiatsu within him. When releasing his reiatsu it takes the form of solidified graviton particles that is purple in color. The graviton’s emitted by his reiatsu increase the surrounding gravity, causing those who are caught within its range to slow down. The more reiatsu he releases the more he can increase the more weight is added to his surroundings.
I. Sealed Powers » Zanpakutô Name:
Yōshanai Kami» Zanpakutô Spirit Appearance:
The appearance of Leviathan’s Zanpakutō spirit is a rather unique one. It takes the form of a humanoid with a body made of pure purple energy and with wisps of similar color energy acting as hair. The Zanpakutō spirit has no real features besides white holes that is considered its eyes. » Inner World:
The inner world of Yōshanai Kami is rather beautiful. When entering the inner world one would notice that the environment that it takes on is that of infinite black space. Millions of purple shining stars and large planet sized spheres of purple energy take up the vastness of the inner world, giving it the look of outer space. » Zanpakutô Appearance:
» Sealed Zanpakutô Power:Gravity Aura:
Currently the only power Leviathan can muster whilst using his sealed powers, he can coat his entire body in an aura of gravity. Leviathan has completely control over his aura, able to increase the gravity of certain parts of his body to deal extra damage or act as armor to protect against certain attacks and can also decrease the weight of his body so that he can fly. He also holds the ability to discharge his gravity aura in an attack but that is more taxing. He can discharge his personal gravity aura a maximum of three times before his ability goes into a 2 post cooldown.
