Race Spec Here:
THE SHINIGAMI TEMPLATE
I. Basic Information» Name: Rukia Kuchiki, 朽木ルキア (Kuchiki Rukia) » Age: 150 years at the beginning of the Shinigami Arc, now around 490. » Birth date: 14 January » Gender: Female » Height: 144cm » Weight: 33kg » Association: Gotei United, 2nd Division Vice-Captain. »Agent of The Shinigami Arc Association: Kurosaki Ichigo, who siphons all of her powers; then Inoue Orihime, Inoue Sora (Hollow), Grand Fisher, Urahara Kisuke, Menos Grande, Abarai Renji, and finally, Kuchiki Byakuya.
»Soul Society Arc Association: 6th Division»Imprisoned & Held within the Senzaikyu; then escorted to the Sokyoku for her execution, where she's rescued by Kurosaki Ichigo, Ishida Uryuu, Yasutora Sado, Inoue Orihime and Abarai Renji.
»Arrancar Arc Association: Advanced Task-Force with Hitsugaya Toshirou and Abarai Renji, enlisted to protect Karakura Town, then Inoue Orihime once they enter the Soul Society, training for one month.
[b]» Appearance Written: Short and petite, Rukia is among one of the shortest among her peers within the Soul Society, as she's easily towered over by people of Yasutora Sado's, or the Arrancar, Nelliel Tu Odelschvank's height. She has pale skin and dark hair, somehow managing to always keep a stray piece of her tapered bangs in between her eyes. She has a purplish eye color which at times looks as if they have some dark-blue in them; and Byakuya told Rukia that she strongly resembles her older sister and his own late wife, Kuchiki Hisana. » Appearance Image:
II. Personality» Personality: Although there was nothing she could have done to prevent Kaien's death, Rukia continually feels guilty about what happened to him. Because she immediately killed Kaien without first trying to find a way to help him, Rukia convinces herself that she valued her own life over his. The only solace she is able to find in his death is the belief that she saved him from a Hollow's control. This guilt-ridden attitude carries over to her relationship with Kurosaki Ichigo; when Rukia is taken into custody and Ichigo is gravely wounded in an attempt to save her, she assumes that he dies of his injuries. Feeling that Ichigo's death would have been avoided had she never met him, Rukia loses her reason for living and resigns herself to her sentenced execution.
Because of the amount of time she has spent with Ichigo, Rukia has been able to gain a keen understanding of his inner workings. She is as such always able to help him overcome his own self-doubts, showing him that he can and wants to complete a given task when he himself thinks otherwise. Rukia's relationship with Ichigo is unique, for despite the relatively short amount of time they have known each other, Ichigo can easily confide in her and considers her a true friend because she is encouraging and understands what he is feeling. Rukia's ability to get into others' heads comes into play a number of other times throughout the series, most commonly while in the human world. By playing the part of a poor, innocent girl, Rukia is able to get others to side with her and otherwise focus their scrutiny on an unrelated topic so that her peculiar actions might go unnoticed.
A recurring gag between Rukia and her peers is her drawing ability, or lack thereof. When needing to explain something to someone, most commonly Ichigo, Rukia uses poorly drawn pictures to illustrate the topic. Regardless of what the subject might be, all of her works most closely resemble bears, rabbits, or some other typical woodland creature. Ichigo is always quick to comment on this deficiency, and promptly receives either a beating, or graffiti to the face for bringing it up.
III. Upbringing» Upbringing: Approximately 150 years ago (Chapter 1, pg. 19), Rukia and her older sister, Hisana, were brought together to Inuzuri (Hanging Dog), the 78th District of Rukongai, after they died in the Human World. Unable to live there while caring for a child, Hisana abandoned Rukia when she was still a baby (Chapter 179, pg. 11). Rukia grew up on her own for a considerable amount of time. One day, Rukia tripped an adult who was chasing Abarai Renji's group of friends, and urged them to follow her to avoid losing the water they had stolen. Rukia joined their group, becoming their spiritual leader, and they lived together as a family (Chapter 98, pg. 6-7).
They all hated Inuzuri and the people there. Rukia exhibited some spiritual power during this time. Ten years after Rukia joined the group, with all of their friends dead, Rukia proposed they become Shinigami and live in Seireitei, noting she had heard it was pretty there. Renji agreed with her. As they were gifted with spiritual powers, they entered the Shin'ō Academy with ease, where they struggled to stand out from those from the noble families (Chapter 98, pg. 7-11). The night before the welcoming ceremony for the new students of the Academy, against Rukia's advice, Renji slept in a tree. The following morning, he fell out of the tree and landed on a headstone where a startled Kira Izuru had been praying, for which Rukia scolded him (Chapter 17, pg. 4-5).
Two months after entering the Academy, Renji, scolding Rukia for still not fitting in, informed her he was going to the Human World for field training to practice Konsō for the first time. Rukia complained about this being unfair, but Renji retorted that it is about talent, and that he will get stronger. Rukia said she will show him she is the stronger one, but trailed off (Chapter 17, pg. 9-11). One day, while meeting with Kuchiki Byakuya and his entourage, Renji entered the room to tell her he had passed an important exam. Disappointed with the interruption, the nobles, leaving, told Rukia they were eager to hear her answer. After they had left, Renji asked her what they wanted. She told him they wanted to adopt her into the Kuchiki Clan, having her graduate immediately, and be assigned to the 13th Division, which Renji congratulated her on. Rukia thanked him and left (Chapter 98, pg. 12-16). Rukia was told Byakuya adopted her into the Kuchiki Clan due to her similarity to Hisana, whom he had married (Chapter 179, pg. 10).
Rukia was admitted to the 13th Division without taking their entrance exam. On her first day in the Division, she is shown into a room by a fellow Shinigami, whom she told to treat her like any other new recruit. After he left, she heard him and others talking about her and the favoritism shown to nobles. Rukia was disappointed it was like that there as well. Lieutenant Shiba Kaien entered the room, introduced himself, and scolded her for her weak reply. Rukia was deeply happy she could have a normal relationship with her superior, rather than being treated as special. That evening, Rukia reported to Byakuya her first day had ended peacefully and she did not attain a Seated Officer position, but Byakuya asked her to leave (Chapter 134, pg. 7-11). Later, Rukia, becoming Kotetsu Kiyone's assistant, went on a mission to the Human World (B-part, pilot Chapter).
During her time in the 13th Division, she became friends with Kaien. One day, seeing she was gloomy, Kaien told her as long as she was in his Division, he would stand by her, even if he died. They were interrupted by the drunk Kiyone and Kotsubaki Sentarou, who tried to encourage her (Chapter 134, pg. 12-14). Kaien mentored Rukia, teaching her how to fight. Their first training location was Mount Koifushi of Hokutan, the 3rd District of West Rukongai, where Kaien taught her about the concept of the heart (Chapter 268, pg. 1-15). He was present when she learned her shikai's first two "dances," (Chapter 265, pg. 17-18).
Rukia greatly admired Kaien's wife, 3rd Seat Shiba Miyako (Chapter 134, pg. 14-15), wanting to be like her someday. When Miyako was killed by a Hollow, Rukia, Kaien, and Ukitake went to its lair (Chapter 134, pg. 15-19). She offered to go first in order to scout out its abilities, but Kaien asked to face the Hollow alone. When its special ability destroyed Kaien's Zanpakutō, Rukia attempted to help, but was stopped by Ukitake. He told her Kaien's fight was one of honor rather than a fight for his life. If she were to help, Kaien's life would be saved, but his honor would be forever damaged. After protesting about this, Rukia reluctantly obeyed his order. However, the Hollow, entering Kaien's body, possessed him (Chapter 135, pg. 1-19).
The Hollow attempted to attack Rukia, but Ukitake, blocking it, sent Rukia away as he fought it. Afraid to fight it, she obeyed, but she came back because she wished to help Kaien and was afraid to face her cowardice in future. As it leaped at her, she noted it was no longer Kaien. Unable to bear seeing him like that, she stabbed Kaien. He thanked Rukia and apologized for dragging her into it. Kaien died in Rukia's arms (Chapter 136, pg. 1-18). Rukia brought the corpse to the Shiba family estate, but was afraid to apologize out of guilt from her role in Kaien's death (Chapter 131, pg. 10-11 : Chapter 263, pg. 15).
Forty years after her adoption into the Kuchiki Clan, Kiyone and Sentarou informed Rukia she had been assigned to the Human World. Rukia thought this was a transfer order, which Kiyone denied, reminding her of her previous mission to the Human World, which Rukia still failed to remember. Ukitake told her she was being assigned to Karakura Town for one month, which should be easy for her. Rukia thanked him for telling her. Ukitake asked if she had told Byakuya about it, but she stated he would not wish to be bothered with such a minor thing. Ukitake offered to tell him for her, for which Rukia thanked him (B-part, pilot Chapter).
IV. Upbringing» History:
Agent of The Shinigami Arc
: One Friday evening, Rukia feels a strong presence (Chapter 1, pg. 1). She enters the room of Ichigo Kurosaki, who, mistaking her for a burglar, kicks her. Surprised Ichigo can see and touch her, Rukia, telling Ichigo normal Humans cannot see her, informs him of the existence and purpose of Shinigami. Ichigo, refusing to believe Rukia's explanation, insults her. Incensed, Rukia binds him with a kidou spell. Explaining what Kidou is, she returns his insults (Chapter 1, pg. 17-28).
Rukia, reassuring a nearby Plus, performs konsou on it. With the aid of some drawings, she explains Konsō and the duties of Shinigami to Ichigo. She reveals she is unable to sense the Hollow she had been tracking anymore because a great power is hindering her senses. Ichigo tells her he can hear something howling. Rukia realizes it is a Hollow, but is confused by how Ichigo heard it before her. She rushes out of the room to confront the Hollow, refusing to free Ichigo. Spotting Karin Kurosaki lying in the corridor, she listens as she tells Ichigo what happened. Ichigo breaks free of the kidou, much to Rukia's shock, and rushes to stop the Hollow, Fishbone D (Chapter 1, pg. 17-28).
As Ichigo futilely attacks the Hollow, Rukia injures it, freeing Yuzu Kurosaki from its grasp. When Rukia explains Fishbone D came because of Ichigo, he attempts to attack the Hollow himself. Rukia shields him with her body, rendering her unable to fight. Seeing that Ichigo is truly determined to protect his family, Rukia offers to transfer half of her power to him. However, Ichigo somehow absorbs almost all of her power instead. Rukia realizes it was Ichigo's power which had confused her senses earlier, leaving her wondering just who he is. After defeating Fishbone D, Ichigo collapses and Rukia goes to his side, where she is approached by Kisuke Urahara, who offers her a Gigai (Volume 1 Chapter Sketch).
The following day, Rukia shows up at Karakura High School as a new student, telling people her family had just moved there. She quietly threatens to kill Ichigo if he reveals anything about her true identity. Later, Rukia explains that her power is still inside Ichigo, preventing her from returning to Soul Society. She reveals she is using a Gigai to recover, enabling normal Humans to see her. Rukia tells Ichigo he will have to take over her Shinigami duties, which he initially refuses to do. Rukia, forcing his Shinigami form out of his body, takes him to a park where a Hollow is about to appear. As the Hollow attacks a young Plus, Rukia successfully persuades Ichigo to perform her duties (Chapter 2, pg. 8-23).
Rukia arranges for Ichigo to undergo some rudimentary training to improve his combat tactics. As he trains, she studies modern speech by reading a horror manga. They are interrupted by Orihime Inoue, whom Rukia initially does not recognize. Rukia notices a mark on her leg left by a Hollow, and asks Ichigo about her before leaving. That night, Rukia receives a message about a Hollow on her Denreishinki. She tries to warn him of a Hollow attack just as a large hand bursts through the floor. Rukia uses her Gokon Tekkō to force out Ichigo's soul, and he manages to slice off part of its mask, revealing it to be Orihime's brother, Sora Inoue. As the Hollow flees, Rukia explains to Ichigo that all Hollows were once Human (Chapter 3, pg. 3-21).
Ichigo and Rukia rush to Orihime's home, where Ichigo engages the Hollow in battle. When Ichigo is thrown through the apartment’s wall and knocked out, she wakens him, warning that if he loses, Orihime's soul will be eaten. Rukia enters the apartment as Orihime is badly injured. Revealing she can save her with Kidō, Rukia, telling the lucid Sora to move out of the way, treats her. When Sora decides to purify himself with Ichigo's Zanpakutō, Rukia states his sins will be washed away by the sword. When Orihime, waking up, starts to ask Ichigo questions, Rukia replaces her memory (Chapter 6, pg. 9-18).
When Ichigo states his wounds have healed very well, Rukia tells him she excelled at Kidō in the Academy, before changing the subject by asking him how to open a juice box. Mizuiro Kojima interrupts, noting Rukia and Ichigo are together again, saying they get along well. Ichigo says Mizuiro's hobby is womanizing, especially older girls, and warns Rukia to watch out for him. Keigo Asano, arriving, introduces himself to Rukia. As Reiichi torments the group, Rukia, ignoring him, continues to struggle with the juice box until Yasutora Sado arrives with a talking parakeet. Rukia tells Ichigo the spirit of a lonely Plus is inside it, which they should send to Soul Society that night. She notes Ichigo is now concerned about other people's safety. When an injured Sado is brought to the Kurosaki Clinic, Rukia tells Ichigo the wound on Sado's back was inflicted by a Hollow (Chapter 7, pg. 21).
The next morning, Sado disappears and Rukia searches for him. She later tells Ichigo she did not find him, nor has she received any word about Hollows from Soul Society. Ichigo, trying to track the parakeet himself, quickly finds the Reiraku of the parakeet, much to Rukia's shock. Just as they find Sado, they also come across a weakened Karin. Rukia orders Ichigo to take her home so he is not distracted while fighting. Brushing off Ichigo's concerns about her fighting a Hollow, she runs after Sado. Unable to catch up to him due to the restrictions of her Gigai, she curses the SRDI. Rukia is attacked by a Hollow called Shrieker, but is surprised when she survives his initial strike. During the fight, she realizes Sado cannot see Shrieker. Surprised by his calmness, Rukia verbally directs his attacks towards the Hollow (Chapter 9, pg. 6-19).
When Ichigo arrives, she, transforming him into a Shinigami, warns him about Shrieker's abilities. She and Sado hide Ichigo's body and the parakeet in a safe place. The parakeet says it is his fault she was injured, as he wanted to bring his mother back to life. Rukia questions him about this. When Ichigo defeats Shrieker, the gates of Hell open to claim the Hollow. Rukia explains Hell to Ichigo. After examining the parakeet, she, determining he cannot be returned to his body, reassures him about going to Soul Society. She erases Sado's memory (Chapter 13, pg. 12).
With her supplies running low, Rukia visits the Urahara Shop. She stops Jinta Hanakari from bullying Ururu Tsumugiya outside the shop before being shown in to Urahara. Ordering various goods, she pays for them with the bounty from Ichigo's defeat of Shrieker, shrugging off Urahara's concerns. She collects a previously ordered Soul Candy dispenser. At school, she gives Ichigo the dispenser, stating it will allow him to transform into a Shinigami without her help, while placing an artificial soul in his body. Ignoring Ichigo's unease with the idea, she makes him use it. When she receives an order, she drags him off to deal with it, leaving the artificial soul, Kon, in Ichigo's body. After dealing with the order, they rush back to find the artificial soul is causing mayhem in their classroom. They attempt to confront it, but he escapes, leading Rukia to believe it is a Mod Soul (Chapter 14, pg. 14-19).
As they search, Ichigo and Rukia argue until she tells him of Operation Spearhead, revealing that according to Soul Society's laws, all Mod Souls must be destroyed. As Rukia naively asks a shopkeeper if he saw Kon, she receives an order. When they find the Hollow, they find Kon is already fighting it. After it is defeated, Urahara arrives to reclaim Kon. Rukia tells him she is content with her purchase, and he does not have to worry about it. Later, Rukia and Ichigo see a news report about the incident on TV. Ichigo asks what they should do, but gets no reply. Rukia and Ichigo search for a dead animal to put Kon into, but eventually settle for a stuffed toy animal. On the 16th of June, Rukia notices Ichigo is very distracted. After a family meeting that night, Ichigo tells the confused Rukia the following day is the anniversary of his mother's death (Chapter 17, pg. 6-19).
The following day, Rukia waits for Ichigo near Masaki's grave. She questions Ichigo about his mother's death, asking if a Hollow killed her. Angered, Ichigo tells her he was responsible for Masaki's death. Horrified by this and what she had said to him, Rukia quietly watches Ichigo's family visit the grave. Kon, crawling out of her backpack, asks to go home, but Rukia insists they must be nearby in case a Hollow attacks. When Karin and Yuzu are attacked by Grand Fisher, Rukia senses the Hollow, but is once again surprised by the lack of any orders on her Denreishinki. She rushes towards them, meeting up with Ichigo on the way. She tells Ichigo she will not ask about Masaki any more. She, transforming him into a Shinigami, carries his body. Finding Ichigo's sisters, she sees Ichigo being confronted by Grand Fisher. Rukia, telling Ichigo about this infamous Hollow, berates him when he recklessly attacks it. As she realizes Grand Fisher killed his mother, Ichigo, stopping her from helping him with kidou, tells her to stay out of the fight. Rukia puts Kon in Ichigo's body, and they bring the girls to safety (Chapter 22, pg. 1-4).
When she honors Ichigo's request to stay out of the fight, Kon asks her to save Ichigo. Rukia rushes back to watch Ichigo's battle. Thinking to herself that she cannot interfere, as Ichigo is fighting for himself, she remembers the events of Kaien's death and decides not to interfere. When Grand Fisher escapes, Rukia tries to calm the heavily wounded Ichigo, insisting that the fight is over. When Ichigo collapses, she begins healing him. Rukia uses up most of her strength healing Ichigo's major wounds, so she returns him to his body before he is fully healed, reassuring him over the outcome of the battle. Rukia listens as Ichigo talks with Isshin. Afterwards, Ichigo asks Rukia if he can remain a Shinigami for a while longer (Chapter 25).
One Sunday morning, Rukia stops Ichigo as he beats Kon clean against a wall, revealing she has arranged for an implement to clean him with. She proceeds to use the school's toilet brush on Kon, but Ichigo orders her to take it back. At school, Keigo invites Rukia to the live broadcast of Don Kanonji's TV show and encourages her to do his pose. Rukia declines, politely saying she is too shy. The following Wednesday evening, Rukia accompanies several of her classmates to the broadcast at an abandoned hospital. Telling Ichigo he must be tired from his dual life, she instructs him to relax. She reveals she does not know what the "festival" is about. Ichigo explains it to her, but she still does not understand. He asks Rukia if there really is a spirit there, thinking the Shinigami would have dealt with it. She states it is likely a Jibakurei, which can be difficult for Shinigami to detect (Chapter 27).
When the Jibakurei screams, Rukia tells him it is a Demi-Hollow. As the show begins filming, Rukia, turning her attention to the events unfolding, is impressed with Kanonji's entrance. Ichigo asks her if they should perform konsou on the Jibakurei, but Rukia tells him it takes months to years for one to turn into a Hollow. Believing it would be trouble if there was a struggle with so many people there, she states they will do the konsou after the show and seeks to reassure him. However, Don Kanonji jams his staff into the hole on the Demi-Hollow's chest. Rukia condemns Kanonji's actions. When Ichigo is pounced on by security after attempting to stop Kanonji, Rukia, trying to change him into a Shinigami, is caught as well. Urahara frees Ichigo, prompting Rukia to ask what he is scheming. Urahara, claiming he is there because Ururu and Jinta enjoy the show, frees her. After Urahara knocks the guards unconscious with a blast, Rukia berates him for using Soul Society's tools so freely. When the spirit disappears, Rukia, realizing its body is about to reform into a Hollow, searches for it with her Denreishinki. She yells at Ichigo to look above him, attracting the attention of some security guards (Volume 4).
The following day, Rukia and the others are called before the school principal over their appearance on the show. Rukia distracts Kagine by claiming responsibility, allowing the others to flee. When Kagine notices the others are gone, Rukia escapes as well. That afternoon, she receives an order and leaves with Ichigo. As they bicker, they pass Uryū Ishida. Later that week, Rukia and Ichigo arrive at what they believe to be the site of a Hollow attack, but find a Plus cowering in a corner and no Hollow. Ichigo suggests her Denreishinki is broken, but Rukia insists it is working, rebuking Ichigo's suggestion that there is another Shinigami defeating the Hollows before him. Rukia is unable to get the Plus to reveal who saved him, but determines somebody is responsible (Chapter 34).
Rukia decides to call Urahara to ask whether her Denreishinki is broken. When he does not answer, she complains about him to herself. After school, she and Ichigo arrive at yet another site with no Hollow. The pair is approached by Uryū, who tells them a new Hollow has appeared. An order confirms this, and she is surprised when Uryū kills it. He introduces himself as a Quincy. The next day, Rukia tells Ichigo to keep Kon with him in case Uryū tries to contact him again. Later, she visits Urahara, and after scolding him for not answering her calls, asks about the Quincy. Rukia is confused by the repeated appearance and disappearance of Hollows. Seeing a large number of Hollows, Rukia goes outside and notices a spiritual disturbance in the sky. (Chapter 38).
Later, Rukia is attacked by a Hollow. During the fight, she realizes, with annoyance, her power has not recovered, despite her being in a Gigai for two months. Kon, arriving, subdues the Hollow, but Rukia bickers with him for forgetting what he was supposed to tell her. When Uryū interrupts them, Rukia deduces he is responsible for the large amount of Hollows. Ichigo, arriving, argues with Kon. The group argues until they notice the Hollows are gathering at the disturbance in the sky. When Uryū leaves, Rukia tells Ichigo about the Quincy and their extermination by the Shinigami. Ichigo chases after Uryū, leaving her alone with Kon. Ignoring Kon's advice, she goes after them (Chapter 47).
Rukia watches in shock as a Menos Grande appears near her. When she tries to stop Ichigo from attacking it, Urahara, binding her with Kidō, tells her to watch the battle, which he claims will be crucial for her and Ichigo. She is left stunned when Ichigo severely injures the Menos, forcing it to flee. When Uryū turns up at school heavily bandaged, Rukia tells Ichigo not to pay attention to it, as it is not his fault. Mahana Natsui, inviting her to lunch with the girls of the class, asks Rukia what her relationship is with Ichigo. Despite Chizuru Honshō and Orihime's encouragement, she states they are just friends. Realizing she has become too attached to the Human World, she ties up Kon and writes a coded note for Ichigo, telling him not to look for her and to go into hiding. She then leaves the Kurosaki clinic. Lost in thought as she runs, Rukia is surprised by Renji. Complaining she has become too soft in the two months she has been missing. He demands she summon the Human she gave her powers to. When Rukia denies doing such a thing, Renji asks why she is acting like that. Byakuya appears behind Rukia, surprising her. When Renji prepares to attack her seriously, Uryū intervenes, but is unable to defeat him. As Rukia notes Renji's increased strength, Ichigo arrives. Angry that he came after her, Rukia watches Ichigo and Renji fight (Chapter 54).
Hoping Ichigo will run away, Rukia leaps on Renji to distract him. However, Ichigo, continuing to fight, ends up being greatly injured by Byakuya. Rukia, saying it is her fault he is dead, asks to go to him, prompting Byakuya to say Ichigo resembles "him". Ichigo grabs Byakuya's leg, relieving Rukia. However, she kicks his arm away from her brother to prevent Byakuya from attacking again. She tells Ichigo to know his place and accepts her arrest, saying there is no point in finishing off someone who is clearly about to die. She tells Ichigo she will not forgive him if he tries to follow her. Renji opens a Senkaimon, and they leave for Soul Society. Rukia is imprisoned in the Sixth Division’s barracks. Refusing Renji's instruction to eat something, she mocks his eyebrows and new rank. Rukia asks if she is going to be executed. Renji states Byakuya is reporting to the Central 46, and he will most likely appeal for her sentence to be reduced. Rukia disagrees, saying she knows what type of person he is and he has not truly looked at her once since her adoption. Later, Byakuya, informing them Rukia will be executed in 25 days, tells Rukia they will not meet again until her execution. After Byakuya leaves, Rukia tries to cheer Renji up by saying it only makes her more determined to escape. She makes fun of his tattooed eyebrows, angering him (Chapter 65).Soul Society Arc
: During her stay in the 6th Division's prison, Rukia regularly talks to Hanatarō Yamada, who is assigned as a janitor there. When he remarks on how she always seems gloomy and sad, Rukia asks him not to address her with honorifics. She tells him of Ichigo, expressing her faith in him. She goes on to mention how it is her fault Ichigo's life changed, and that he suffered greatly. 14 days before Rukia's scheduled execution, Renji escorts a group of Onmitsukidō guards as they transfer her to the Senzaikyū. Once there, he points out to her they can see the Sōkyoku, which will be used for her execution, from the windows. Before leaving, Renji tells Rukia there was an unconfirmed report that five Ryoka invaded Soul Society, and one of them matched Ichigo's description (Chapter 79).
While in the Senzaikyū, Rukia notices the sky becoming brighter when Ichigo and his companions break into Seireitei. She senses the Reiatsu from Ichigo's battle with Kenpachi Zaraki, but is unable to determine if anyone died because of the prison's Sekkiseki walls. She quietly asks Kaien if she is worth spilling blood over. Shortly after, Hanatarō and Ganju Shiba open the door to her cell. When Ganju realizes Rukia is the one who killed Kaien, Rukia urges him to kill her, saying she will have no regrets if she dies by his hands. However, they are interrupted by Byakuya's sudden arrival. When Hanatarō decides to face Byakuya by himself to allow Rukia to escape, Ganju goes out to face him instead (Chapter 116).
Rukia tries to stop the fight, but is unable to handle Byakuya's Reiatsu because of the Sekkiseki's effects. She is shocked when Ichigo arrives, but becomes angry at him for attempting to rescue her. Ichigo, ignoring her protests, fights Byakuya. As Byakuya prepares to use his Shikai, Rukia warns Ichigo to run. However, Yoruichi Shihōin arrives, and stops him from releasing. When Hanatarō asks who the woman is, Rukia tells him about her. After Yoruichi escapes with Ichigo, Byakuya's Reiatsu renders Rukia unconscious. Despite Hanatarō's protests, Ukitake orders Sentarō Kotsubaki to take Rukia back into the Senzaikyū (Chapter 119).
The following day, Rukia is told her execution has been brought forward to the next day. Rukia notes that despite her shock, she is not saddened by the news. Attributing this to a dream she had the previous night about Kaien's death, she reflects on her role in his death, wondering why she did not stop him. She states she does not deserve to be rescued or have anyone stand by her. On the morning of the execution, the guards, tying up Rukia, escort her out of the Senzaikyū. As she is being moved onto Sōkyoku Hill for her execution, Rukia senses Renji falling in battle against Byakuya. As she mourns his defeat, 3rd Division Captain Gin Ichimaru approaches her. Gin, teasing her over how she greets him, points out Renji is still alive. After telling her he was trying to rescue her, Gin offers to save her friends for her. Reflecting on how much she has hated Gin since she first met him, Rukia briefly wonders what he would have to gain from such an act, only to learn he was joking. After he leaves, Rukia reflects on how Gin's lie restored her will to live, leaving her disgusted. Rukia is brought to the base of the Sōkyoku, where she sees Byakuya arrive silently. Rukia asks Captain-Commander Genryūsai Shigekuni Yamamoto to allow the Ryoka to leave Soul Society after the execution, to which he agrees, pleasing her. As she watches the release of the Sōkyoku, Rukia notes her heart is at peace once again, despite Gin's earlier intervention. She wonders to herself whether it is because of Yamamoto's promise or because Byakuya ignored her. She reflects on her life, concluding she has no regrets. As she says goodbye, the Sōkyoku moves to attack her. However, Ichigo, arriving, manages to halt its advance (Chapter 150).
After overcoming her initial shock, Rukia becomes upset that Ichigo is attempting to rescue her again. As the Sōkyoku prepares to approach again, Rukia warns Ichigo not to face it. However, Ukitake and 8th Division Captain Shunsui Kyōraku destroy it, after which Ichigo destroys the Sōkyoku's stand, freeing Rukia. Ichigo dismisses Rukia's protests, but she refuses to thank him. As she asks what his next move is, she notes to herself he has become stronger. Renji arrives moments later, much to Rukia's relief, but the moment is cut short as Ichigo throws her to Renji. Rukia and Renji scold Ichigo for being reckless, but are told to get to safety. As they are escaping, Renji refuses Rukia's demands to release her and help Ichigo. Insisting they have to run, he tells her Ichigo feels he owes her for allowing him to protect everyone. They are eventually confronted by Kaname Tōsen, who brings them back to Sōkyoku Hill, where Sōsuke Aizen and Gin are waiting for them. Aizen demands Renji hand Rukia over to him. When Renji refuses Aizen's order, he is attacked by the captain. Renji tries to attack Aizen while still holding Rukia, but he is quickly overwhelmed. Rukia offers to surrender herself, but Renji silences her. Ichigo returns to defend the pair, but Aizen, defeating them both with ease, grabs Rukia (Chapter 174).
Rukia listens as Aizen talks about Ichigo's role in his plans and about how to overcome the limits of a Shinigami. Aizen reveals the existence of the Hōgyoku, revealing Urahara had buried it deep within her soul. He states Urahara gave her a Gigai in hopes to turn her into a Human and hide the Hōgyoku forever. He further reveals he killed the Central 46 and orchestrated Rukia's execution. Wanting the Hōgyoku for himself, Aizen hoped her death would give him access to it, but settles for a non-fatal alternative, since the execution was interrupted. Aizen, removing the Hōgyoku from Rukia's body and tells Ichimaru to kill her, but a battle-worn Byakuya, grabbing Rukia, is impaled by Ichimaru's Zanpakutō instead. Rukia asks him why he saved her, but Aizen advances on them. Before Aizen can kill them, the remaining captains arrive to subdue Aizen, Ichimaru, and Tōsen. During the aftermath of the battle, Rukia is restrained by a member of the 4th Division when she tries to go to Byakuya's side while he is being healed. Captain Retsu Unohana, taking over the treatment of Byakuya, tells Rukia Byakuya is calling for her. Byakuya tells her about his deceased wife, Hisana, revealing Rukia is actually Hisana's younger sister. He recounts to Rukia about how Hisana had regretted abandoning her, and had kept searching for her while they were married. He reveals she asked him to find and protect her, as well as why he had sworn to always abide by the rules, thus leaving him torn between two promises when the execution was announced. He apologizes to Rukia for his actions. During the following week, Rukia, visiting Kūkaku Shiba's home, apologizes to both Kūkaku and Ganju for her role in the death of their brother, Kaien. Kūkaku cuts her apology short, saying she forgives her. She reveals Ukitake had already told her what had happened. When Ichigo and Orihime arrive, Rukia tells Ichigo she wishes to stay in Soul Society. The next day, Ichigo and the others gather at a Senkaimon to return to the Human World. Orihime gives Rukia a dress Uryū made, insisting she take good care of it. The group, saying goodbye, leaves (Chapter 181).Arrancar Arc
: Tōshirō Hitsugaya and an advance team of Shinigami, which includes both Rukia and Renji, are sent to protect Karakura Town from the threat of Aizen's Arrancar army. Upon arrival, Rukia, greeting a stunned Ichigo, assaults him. Removing his Shinigami form from his body, Rukia, dragging Ichigo off to fight a Hollow, tells him not to fear his inner Hollow, but to rise up and crush it. She forces Ichigo to apologize to Orihime for not being able to protect her. Orihime, thanking them both, welcomes Rukia back. Rukia accompanies Ichigo to the Kurosaki Clinic, where she is greeted by an excited Kon. Stomping on him, she bickers with Ichigo. After Ichigo shoos away the eavesdropping Yuzu and Isshin, Rukia, stating his family has kept its charm, watches as the other members of Hitsugaya's team enter the room. As they explain to Ichigo why they are there, Rukia assists with some drawings, throwing them at Ichigo when he criticizes them. Rukia, seeing the others off as they leave, annoys Ichigo by insisting she will stay in her old spot. She tells Isshin and Yuzu a false story to convince them to let her stay with them. She shares a room with Yuzu and Karin, which disappoints her slightly (Chapter 200).
When Grimmjow Jaegerjaquez invades Karakura Town with his Fracción, Rukia and Ichigo sense their presence. Counting six of them on her Denreishinki, Rukia, expressing surprise at their numbers, deduces they are combing the town, intent on killing anyone with spiritual power. She tells Ichigo Orihime is safe with Hitsugaya and Matsumoto, but one has targeted Sado. As she runs towards Sado's location, Ichigo goes on ahead. Rukia passes Sado halfway there. She expresses her happiness at his safety, but he runs past her. When she reaches Ichigo, who has confronted the Arrancar Di Roy Rinker, she asks him what he said to Sado. When he states he told him to step aside, she, ordering him to do likewise, leaves her Gigai, saying he runs the risk of losing control again if things go bad so soon after his previous fight. She tells Ichigo that Urahara's Gigai was responsible for her powers never returning, and she has recovered. While the Artificial Soul Chappy restrains Ichigo, Rukia, releasing her Shikai, kills Di Roy. Shortly after, Grimmjow confronts Ichigo and Rukia. Sensing Grimmjow's incredible power, Rukia urges Ichigo to run away. However, Grimmjow impales her with his hand. Chappy goes to her side, and after the battle, Rangiku takes her to Orihime, who heals her. After Orihime is finished, Renji asks if she is fully healed while Chappy fawns over her. Rukia, stating she healed incredibly fast, thanks Orihime, noting her skills have improved. When Ichigo asks how she is, Rukia tells him not to blame himself for her injuries. She suggests he ask Urahara about his inner Hollow. The following day, Isshin and Yuzu ask her if she has seen Ichigo, and she goes in search of him. Unable to find any trace of his Reiatsu, she returns to the Kurosaki Clinic, apologizing to Yuzu when she asks if Rukia had found him (Chapter 217).

THE SHINIGAMI TEMPLATE
III. History» History:
At the Urahara Shop, Rukia encounters an upset Orihime leaving the store. Rukia is angered to hear that Urahara told her to stay out of the battle, insisting it is not right for her to be cast aside so easily. She tells Orihime, who is worried about being in the way in battle, that the ones who get in the way are those who lack resolve, not power. She states if any one of those who came to rescue her were not there, she would not be here today. As she says they should look for a way for her to help in the battle, Hiyori Sarugaki, appearing, takes Orihime away, leaving Rukia to wonder who she was. Rukia later finds Orihime leaving the Vizard's hideout. When Orihime tries to explain, Rukia tells her she felt a bit of Ichigo's Reiatsu when she arrived, and is content he is safe. Rukia and Orihime travel to Soul Society, where she asks Captain Ukitake to open the training grounds behind the Division's headquarters. The pair spend a month training. When the Espada attack Karakura Town, Rukia receives notice of the attack from a Hell Butterfly. Ukitake orders her to head to the Senkaimon in front of the Division headquarters. Rukia tells Orihime she cannot accompany her, reminding the Human she would end up in the Dangai if she entered a Senkaimon. When Ukitake tells her the Kidō Corps will secure the walls of the Dangai for her, Rukia tells her she will wait on the other side for her. As she rushes to the Senkaimon, Rukia wonders why the Espada are attacking so soon (Chapter 31).
Rukia arrives in Karakura Town to find Ichigo losing in a battle against Grimmjow. Freezing the Arrancar with her Zanpakutō, she tries to free Ichigo from Grimmjow's blade, which is pinning his hand to the ground. Ichigo comments on her power, prompting Rukia to state he was using a reckless power himself. Grimmjow, breaking free from the ice, grabs her head and charges a Cero. She is saved by the intervention of Shinji Hirako, who takes over fighting Grimmjow. The battle is cut short when Ulquiorra Cifer appears, restraining Grimmjow, before leaving with the aid of Negación. After the battle, Hachigen Ushōda, healing Ichigo, tells Rukia to take him home, as he will recover better if he is not near people with Hollow-like Reiatsu like them. That night at Ichigo's house, Rukia is unable to connect to Soul Society with her Denreishinki due to spiritual interference. She wonders who Hachigen and his comrades are, as well as what power Ichigo is trying to acquire. As she ponders the Arrancar's sudden retreat from battle, she decides to go outside to cool her head. She finds Karin and Yuzu outside the door, who ask if it is alright to have dinner with Ichigo. She tells the girls Ichigo would enjoy that. The next day, Rukia is present when Hitsugaya's team, filtering through the interference, contacts Soul Society. They learn from Ukitake that Orihime was taken by the Arrancar. Captain-Commander Yamamoto orders them to return to Soul Society. Rukia, accusing him of abandoning Orihime, states she cannot obey the order to return. As Yamamoto states he expected as much, Captains Byakuya and Kenpachi arrive via a Senkaimon to force them to return. Soon after, she leaves with the others through the Senkaimon. In Seireitei, Byakuya states he did not receive any orders beyond returning them to Soul Society, and they may do as they wish. He allows them to return to the Human World (Chapter 247).
Urahara opens a Garganta for Rukia and Renji, and, shortly after arriving in Hueco Mundo, they rescue Ichigo and his group from Runuganga's attack. As Ichigo greets the pair, they, hitting him, demand to know why he left for Hueco Mundo without them. She asks why he did not have faith in them, saying they immediately planned to come back to help rescue Orihime. As the group travels towards Las Noches, Rukia reveals Byakuya, allowing them to do as they pleased, and gave them cloaks to protect them in Hueco Mundo's desert. She asks Ichigo who Nel Tu, Pesche, and Dondochakka are. They introduce themselves, and Ichigo tells her they are Hollows. Upon reaching the walls of Las Noches, Rukia notes it is not made of Sekkiseki, so Renji and Ichigo break through it. As the group runs through the opening they made, Rukia mocks Renji for trying and failing to use Kidō to illuminate the tunnel. Upon arriving at a crossroads, Rukia proposes they split up, insisting she did not come to Hueco Mundo to be protected by Ichigo, and telling him not to worry about her. After Renji leads them in a chant about their safe return, the group splits up. As she explores Las Noches, Rukia senses Sado's defeat. She hurries in the direction of his fading Reiatsu, intent on helping him. However, she finds herself under a blue sky, which confuses her. The 9th Espada, Aaroniero Arruruerie, appearing behind her, leads her inside his palace. When he removes his mask, Rukia is shocked to see the face of Kaien Shiba (Chapter 262).
Rukia asks if he really is Kaien, reminding herself she killed Kaien. Aaroniero, convincing her that he is Kaien, says he is alive and has taken the place of an Espada. However, when Rukia approaches him, Aaroniero attacks her. Aaroniero, reminding her that she killed Kaien, asks if she is prepared to offer her life to atone for the action. Rukia states she would do so, but she must rescue Orihime first. When Aaroniero tries to manipulate her into killing her friends, Rukia, enraged, demands he stop shaming Kaien's memory, insisting Kaien was not like him, Rukia begins to fight him.
Throughout their battle, Rukia hesitates, troubled by the thought of fighting her mentor. However, remembering Aaroniero has been avoiding sunlight, she exposes his true form. She is eased by the notion of not actually fighting Kaien, but is sad she had not saved her mentor from the control of a Hollow as she had previously thought. Aaroniero, releasing his Zanpakutō, impales her, breaking Sode no Shirayuki. Rukia, reflecting upon her training with Kaien, remembers his warning not to die alone and that he left her heart with her. Activating Third Dance, Shirafune, she kills Aaroniero. She is determined to go to Orihime's aid, but loses consciousness. Later, the 7th Espada, Zommari Rureaux, arrives to finish her off, however, Byakuya Kuchiki, appearing, challenges Zommari. Hanatarō, arriving, tries to move her away from the battle, but Zommari, using Amor, takes control of Rukia's body. Byakuya binds her with Kidō, which prevents Zommari from further controlling her. Byakuya, killing Zommari, requests Isane Kotetsu heal Rukia and Hanatarō. When Rukia wakes up, she is surprised to see 4th Division members there. She is also surprised to see Byakuya is injured, but he insists that she lie there until she is fully healed. Later, Rukia, hearing Aizen's announcement via Tenteikūra, learns that she and her comrades are trapped in Hueco Mundo. However, Byakuya explains the Gotei 13's preparations for battle in Karakura Town to Rukia (Chapter 315).
Rukia comes to Ichigo's aid at the five towers at the center of Las Noches. Freezing Rudbornn Chelute's arm as he tries to attack Ichigo, she tells him to hurry and rescue Orihime. Rukia, defeating Rudbornn's underlings fairly easily, battles Rudbornn. At this time, Rukia notices the battle between Ichigo and Ulquiorra Cifer above her. Eventually, Rukia overpowers him by freezing his "branches". Rudbornn is knocked out of the way by Yammy Llargo, who bursts through a nearby wall. Yammy confronts Rukia, Sado, and Renji. When a Cero comes through the roof of Las Noches, Rukia notices Ichigo's Reiatsu. As Rukia wonders if Ichigo defeated Ulquiorra, an enraged Yammy, cursing the fact that they are all he has to fight, increases in size, causing his jacket to tear and revealing his Espada tattoo. Renji tells Rukia and Sado that together they can defeat Yammy, as he is only the 10th Espada. However, Yammy releases his Zanpakutō. As he towers over them, Yammy reveals he is the 0 Espada, much to the trio's shock. After Renji and Sado are defeated, Rukia is caught by Yammy, but Ichigo, intervening, prevents the Espada from finishing her. She asks where Orihime is, and is told she is tending to Uryū's wounds. Ichigo, moving her to safety, begins to battle Yammy. She watches Ichigo as he fights, wondering what happened to Ichigo above the dome. Rukia notes his eyes do not look like those of someone victorious in battle or about to cut down his enemy. After seeing Ichigo's attack on Yammy, she realizes his Hollow mask has changed from its previous form (Chapter 379).
Following Aizen's death, Rukia, along with Uryū, Sado, Orihime, and Renji, arrives in Karakura Town. Her arm is in a sling as they greet Ichigo. When he suddenly collapses, Rukia, along with the rest of the group, runs towards Ichigo as he screams in pain. A month later, Rukia and Ichigo's other friends are present in his bedroom when he wakes up. Rukia tells Ichigo how long he had been unconscious for, and that Urahara revealed he has lost his Shinigami powers. Rukia further explains the stages of losing his powers, with the first stage bringing intense pain, unconsciousness, and a reversal of the time Ichigo's body spent in the Dangai. With his Shinigami powers gone, the second stage sees his Reiatsu stabilizing and him awakening before his remaining spiritual power completely disappears. At Ichigo's request, the group goes outside. As it becomes harder for Ichigo to see her, Rukia knows this is farewell. Mocking Ichigo's sad face, she states she will still be able to see him, much to his displeasure. Rukia, disappearing from Ichigo's sight completely, leaves through a Senkaimon as Ichigo, bidding farewell, thanks her. (Chapter 436).
After the fall of Aizen, Rukia knew she'd have orders to return to Karakura Town, and the World of The Living, considering it was under the jurisdiction of the 13th division; and naturally, she did. She found herself staying with Urahara at his shop, acting as the residential Hollow dispatch so others from her unit wouldn't need to be troubled with the journey to the World of The Living, as it generally took them a considerable amount of time to arrive on the scene. Still expressing sentiment over her farewell from Kurosaki Ichigo, the Kuchiki woman began to make it a habit of visiting the Kurosaki Clinic every so often, to the delight of the Kurosaki household members. During these visits, things felt to her like they had when she first met Ichigo; they'd often have conversations about the occurences within the Soul Society. For the next few decades, Rukia aided in the restoration of the Soul Society, and then in turn, the reformation of the Gotei 13; where she would eventually become the Captain of the 6th division as the natural successor to Byakuya.
Following the second war against the Soul King that ended in 2015, the world faced a vast majority of its populace becoming awakened, gaining a newfound awareness of the existence of the other realms aside from their own. The balance of souls was tipped towards the World of the Living, which in turn allowed humans with no spiritual lineage to awaken with power, and for the most part, alongside the rest of the Soul Society, Rukia struggled to keep from interfering with the World of The Living's affairs, as long as the balance of souls was maintained. The peace achieved after 2015 ended in 2150 with the coming of the third world war, and for every human roused, a Demon, Iramasha, Sugiura, and Ziamichi spawned. Changes in technology bred the stronger defenses against the evils of Ender; while accelerating the evolution of civilization, and Rukia along with many other Shinigami were flocked to aid the humans in their fight for survival against The Shadow Fall, Kokuryuteshi, Monsuta and all associated depraved organizations that have laid claim upon various territories of Earth. To this day, Rukia strives to balance this strange new rendition of the World of the Living; fighting side by side with humans in their quest to defeat Queen Mana and the other demonic incarnations that have intermingled with the general populace.
IV. Equipment» Equipment: N/A
V. Racial Techniques/Abilities/SkillsKidou Expert:
Rukia's greatest strength is her knowledge of the Kidou, a set of magic spells she can use in the performance of her duties; amongst her known skills are those for binding, healing, purifying, and destruction. However, as she said herself, while her Kidou skill at the Shinigami Academy were the highest of her class, the sheer power of them were just average when she joined 13th division. She developed this skill through continuous training. She has shown she is able to use several high-level Kidou in rapid succession without incantation and still have considerable control and power. She has also shown great skill for using various spells in unique combinations, even using multiple spells simultaneously. Rukia has shown that she is capable of using a level 61 Bakudou spell and a level 63 Hadō spell consecutively, though she needs to chant the incantations for both to perform them. While Rukia aided in the reformation of the Soul Society, she utilized her off time to hone her skills in kidou, studying diligently to master her greatest strength: kidou. Before the third world war broke out, Kuchiki Rukia's skills surpassed even those of Tsukabishi Tessai's, for he himself guided her in her studies, and because of Tessai's training, Rukia is able to use high level kidō without saying their incantations, being able to use this skill up until kidou 91 (save for the Forbidden Kidou, as it's against her moral code); where she does not cast the spells that lie above it, though in time this may be revealed. Rukia is also able to generate her own kidō techniques, seals, and barriers.Swordsmanship:
As a Shinigami of the 13th Division, has a standard array of skills required of Shinigami troops. Upon her introduction, she has the basic-level Zanpakutō, of which she seemed to have only mastered the rudimentary skills. By her own admission, she has less talent in swordsmanship than Kidou. However after much training by her former mentor, Kaien, her skill drastically improved. She has shown herself to be capable enough to hold her own in a battle, most notably defending herself from attacks from the 9th Espada, while he was using the expert swordsmanship skill of Shiba Kaien.Spiritual Power
: Rukia's spiritual energy is personified by the element of ice. Similar to that of Hitsugaya Toshirou's, but to a lesser degree. When Rukia is focused or under stress, her great spiritual energy is manifested as ice particles flowing and falling in the air. She has at times shown a measure of control of her spiritual energy affecting the surrounding area with cold and even freezing the things she touches. Rukia exerts her Spiritual Energy on her Kidō most of the times. She may also use her energy on other occasions. Nonetheless, she is capable of exerting large amounts of Spiritual Pressure. Though her Spiritual Energy is not on par with Ichigo's or other high level-combatants, her spiritual energy is greater than many Shinigami of equal or even higher rank.
Intelligence: Repeatedly in missions, Rukia has shown herself to be very intelligent, as seen from her ability to compensate against stronger opponents with combination attacks. During her forced stay in the living world after losing her powers, Rukia proved herself very resourceful in assisting Ichigo with his new Shinigami duties. Rukia is also very knowledgeable, as shown from her high marks in the academy and her knowledge of the Soul Society's history.
VI. Sealed Powers » Zanpakutô Name:
袖白雪, Sode no Shirayuki. "Sleeved white-snow." » Zanpakutô Appearance:
While sealed, Sode no Shirayuki is a essentially normal Shinigami katana, enabled to preform konsou and purify Hollows. It has a rectangular tsuba with a flame-like pattern along the length of the tsuba, and a curved line on the short width sides; with inward-bevelled corners accompanied by slits both above and below the blade, and curved lines embossed on either side of the blade. The hilt of the blade has red-brown Tsukamaki (cord wrapping) and traditional hishigami (cord cut outs).
VII. Shikai» Shikai Release Phrase:
舞え,袖白雪. "Dance, Sode no Shirayuki." » Shikai Appearance:
Sode no Shirayuki's shikai is activated when Rukia holds her Zanpakutō out in front of her and turns it in a circle counter-clockwise. While Rukia is turning it, the entirety of the sword, from hilt to tip, turns white. The tsuba becomes a snowflake-esque circle, and a white silk ribbon forms from the pommel of the hilt. Sode no Shirayuki is often referred to as one of the most beautiful Zanpakutō in the entire Soul Society, if not THE most beautiful Zanpakutō. When Sode no Shirayuki transforms, its transformation is accompanied by a cool gust of air in all directions. » Shikai Abilities:
Being as it's named "White-sleeved snow," the Zanpakutō's affinity is ice. Its techniques are labeled as "dances" by Rukia, and Shiba Kaien (before his death). Aside from ice techniques, Sode no Shirayuki's primary ability is freezing. It can freeze a target from a distance, or be used in an entirely different manner, creating a path or platform of ice in midair. Sode no Shirayuki can be used by Rukia to freeze even the Reishi-created Spirit Weapons of a Quincy, causing it to shatter like glass.
初の舞・月白, "First Dance, White Moon":
The first dance of Sode no Shirayuki is activated vocally by Rukia, as she calls out the name of the dance while holding the sword upside down. The blade glows, and she gestures a lacerating motion when her target is in position. As she does this, she draws a circle with the tip of Sode no Shirayuki. Anything within the 4 meter radius of the circle freezes; and it not only freezes the ground, but everything within the circle's influence, including anything above it in the air, essentially emanating a pillar of light that freezes all within its area of effect. The temperature drops to -55°C (approximately -67°F), where freezing will take approximately 5-8 minutes depending upon the body mass of the individual. Shortly after being frozen, the target shatters along with the ice, but, if the target winds up outside of the area of effect, the pillar will not shatter.
The duration of this dance is limited to 3 posts, assuming that there are no targets within it. After this, it takes a total of 15 posts to use it again. The skill level to escape this would take a Beginner Speed skill levelled individual, and would affect the skill levels with above it as follows:
Adept: 15% frostbite, 5% frozen
Advanced: 10% frostbite, 2% frozen
Master: 5% frostbite, 1% frozen
Grand Master: 0.50% frostbite, no freezing whatsoever次の舞・白漣, "Next Dance, White Ripple":
Rukia, calling out the name of the dance, punctures the ground once, creating a large ice circle, similarly to when her shikai is activated. she then punctures ground again, in front of her, four times in a semi circle. Ice particles begin to flow up from the punctures she made in the ground, and she takes to her battle stance. The ice particles once built up at the tip of Sode no Shirayuki, are released as a large, powerful avalanche of cold air. In essence, the sword flash freezes whatever it comes into contact with, encasing it in ice. The temperature of the cold air built up is -90°C (approximately -130°F).
The duration of this dance is 1.5 posts, as it's potency is more severe than the preceding dance. It takes a total of 25 posts to be used again. Escaping this would take an Adept Speed skill levelled individual.
Speed skill levels above this will receive minimal frostbite and freezing to the areas that come in contact with the icy blast as follows:
Advanced: 5% frostbite, 3% freezing
Master: 1.5% frostbite, 1% freezing
Grand Master: 0.75% frostbite, 0% freezing
参の舞・白刀, "Third Dance, White Sword":
Rukia activates the third dance vocally, as she does with the aforementioned dances; enabling her to gather all the moisture in the air, specifically to the tip of Sode no Shirayuki, creating a blade of ice. From this point forward, Sode no Shirayuki's length can be augmented. After piercing its target, the blade continues freeze any surrounding objects in the immediate vicinity of the target.
Following the trend of the increasing severity, the temperature drops to -60°C (approximately -140°F), and once the blade is turned to ice, the temperature of the vicinity rises to -3.8°C (approximately 25°F), where the conditions are most optimal for maintaining the blade's durability.
The duration of this dance lasts until the blade is shattered, where it then takes a total of 35 posts to be used again. Escaping this dance would take an Advanced Speed skill levelled individual.
Speed skill levels above this will receive minimal frostbite to the surrounding flesh to any piercing or slashed wounds inflicted by the blade in this state, as follows:
Master: 3% frostbite, henceforth slowing any regenerative abilities by 1 minute
Grandmaster:1.5% frostbite, henceforth slowing any regenerative abilities by 30 seconds樹白, "White Tree":
Rukia impales the ground with Sode no Shirayuki, forming a trail of ice in the direction of her target, like the roots of a tree. The ice then freezes the target from the base up, continuing the freezing process as it transforms the target into ice.
The duration of this ability is 1 post, with a total cooldown of 5 posts. This dance effects Beginner skilled individuals, and is effective to Adept skilled individuals. It takes approximately 45 seconds for the ice to travel to the target, and 780 seconds to freeze individuals totally.
Speed skilled individuals above Adept are unaffected by this ability.Ice-Rope Connection
: If for some reason, Rukia can't reach her sword, she can use Sode no Shirayuki's ice affinity to connect her hand to the sword hilt like a rope, which in turn allows her to use Sode no Shirayuki's Shikai abilities at a distance.
She can only use this ability up to 5 meters in front of her. Anything past that would cause the Ice-Rope to sever.
VIII. Bankai Powers » Bankai Appearance:
In her bankai form, Rukia's shihakusho is replaced by an ankle length white kimono, that has an ornate collar attached to it, accompanied by equally ornate edges, and shoulder designs with long, wide sleeves. Flowing from her back are long silk ribbons, tied to her form in large loops, similar to the loops of a tied musubi-obi. Formed in the middle of her chest is an ice-flower, and a half crown of ice which extends around the back of her head. Rukia's hair becomes white, and Sode no Shirayuki itself becomes ice. » Bankai Abilities:
Rukia's bankai increases the area of influence of Rukia's temperature dropping ability of absolute zero. When released, a pillar of cold mist rises up into the air from where Rukia is and covers a wide area in her vicinity → from 4 meter radii, to 30 meter radii; in which anything within the aforementioned vicinity freezes. Once frozen solid, victims crumble away in seconds.
Physical contact with Rukia herself causes people to start freezing solid because of how cold she is. The sword itself does not actually spread coldness from it; Sode no Shirayuki brings the body temperature of its wielder to a temperature below freezing, (referred to as Absolute-Zero in the manga). As a result, anything touched while it's wielded, freezes, as the sword itself merely increases overall reach. This power grants Rukia the capability of momentarily dropping her body temperature so low, that she's essentially "dead," though she's controlling her own Reishi, putting herself in a type of Cryo-sleep, essentially.
Rukia puts all of the molecules in her body to a halt, preventing any material or substance from entering her body. However, if someone uses an optical attack on her, it will affect her because her nerves are still working. While in this state, the ground below her feet freezes instantly, causing ice quakes, though she can only safely maintain this temperature for a duration of one post. In layman's terms, Rukia's bankai is a sort of flash-freeze; freezing its victims to the marrow, but in turn freezes her also.
This is what makes her bankai dangerous to even herself, despite the fact that Rukia can control cold, because she too can freeze if she uses it for more than one post, though with further training and skill, it has the potential to become far more directional and controlled, and the time limit itself has a slim margin of potential when it comes to the duration of the ability. As it stands now, once Hakka no Togame is used, it cannot be used again within the thread.
Rukia's bankai uses absolute zero, and her one post limit, which comes with implications beyond the scientific phrase, where the thermodynamics studied by the Living come in.
Firstly, heat and temperature are not the same; but different measures of kinetic energy of atoms and molecules in substances and objects. The more heat an object has, the more energy it has; with temperature being the average measurement of heat. The three laws of thermodynamics are stated as such:-Zeroth Law: If two systems are in thermal equilibrium independently with a third system, they must be in thermal equilibrium with each other. This law helps define the notion of temperature.
Simplified: If A and B have equal temperature, and B and C have equal temperature, then A and C have equal temperature.
-First Law: When energy passes, as work, as heat, or with matter, into or out from a system, its internal energy changes in accord with the law of conservation of energy.
Simplified: If something is heating up, it must gain energy from somewhere; if something is cooling down, it must lose energy to somewhere, energy is conserved.
-Second Law: In a natural thermodynamic process, the sum of the entropies of the interacting thermodynamic systems increases.
Simplified: Heat flows from hot objects to cold ones. Entropy only goes up. Entropy is defined as the level of information needed to describe a system.
-Third Law: The entropy of a system approaches a constant value as the temperature approaches absolute zero.
Simplified: At absolute zero an object has the smallest possible entropy, which is unattainable.
To put it simply, Rukia violates the three essential laws of thermodynamics, by her ability to reach absolute zero, breaking the Third Law, which means she brings entropy down, breaking the Second Law, and the conservation of energy, ergo breaking the First Law.
The abilities of her bankai involve freezing targets by taking heat away from them, their environment, or her own body, turning her into a temperature differential (similar to a thermostat). These abilities are only limited by the length of time that she can maintain her temperature before she herself becomes damaged, but it's not only in terms of "heat," and "temperature."
The bigger picture is that Rukia's bankai doesn't just control ice, or the lack of heat at all, though it may seem
that it does. Rukia's bankai abilities control entropy. And the process can be shown as the following:
Rukia adjusts her own entropy value down to zero, which allows her to adjust the entropy values of nearby targets, or anything that she comes into contact with down as well, either through touch, the areas of effect of the first Shikai dance and increase in areas of effect when her bankai is unleashed, or the points of contact, being the second and third dances of her shikai.
The temperature change, and ice that forms is a side-effect of this process.
Furthermore, if you consider the fact that entropy can be defined as the level of information you need in order to describe a system, in turn with the Second Law where it cannot be destroyed, the true power of Rukia's bankai is to destroy information
at the most basic, elementary level.[/color]» Bankai Weaknesses:
: When raising the temperature from absolute zero, Rukia has to do so slowly or risk harming her own body; she has to be careful when warming up from extremely low temperatures, otherwise she would shatter like a super-cooled glass placed in boiling water, similarly to temperature shock.
: While Rukia possesses a powerful Bankai, it is also a difficult one, as the slightest mistake could kill Rukia, as she redirects her Reiatsu, causing it to flow inward, instead of outward from her body.
: Because Rukia is physically affected along with everything else in her vicinity, the duration she can use her Bankai appears is severely limited at merely one post, as prolonged use can cause the death of the Shinigami, due to the expense of energy, and lack of temperature. Once this post has concluded, her bankai cannot be again within the same thread.

IX. Role Play Sample» Roleplay Sample:
It had been a morning that called for tranquillity, no less. As the warmth of the day brought itself upon her skin the moment she stepped out to the openness of the Kuchiki manor, Rukia took in a deep breath, only to exhale several seconds later. Everything almost felt like it had been just right; no mess, no problems, no complications that deemed itself as a right to destroy what she was to protect. All in all, she would have called it a perfect moment, though she knew better. Suddenly, she felt it. The familiar Reiatsu that always made her feel warmth in her usual cold; no matter how "controlled," it seemed. It was her Black Sun.
She turned her gaze towards its initial direction, a semblance of a frown forming itself onto her features with creased brows. 'What is he doing here? There isn't an emergency, right?
' If there had been, someone from the division would have came to fetch her in spite of the fact that she was off duty. Nonetheless, Ichigo was there and she might as well go to see what was wrong. If there was something in the first place, which she hoped against.
Following the string of spiritual pressure that danced along her being, the Shinigami found herself walking barefooted through the neatly-kept grass of the gardens. If any of the servants saw her, they would have commented on just how dirty the ground was for her to be walking on, in an estate such as this one. She liked it though, enjoying the feeling of the dirt beneath her feet; a reminder of the olden days, in Hanging Dog. However, she would have preferred the forest; perhaps she would venture there later in the day.
Then she found him, coming to a stop the second her gaze met his form. It hadn’t been long since the last time Rukia saw him, though even so, she could barely remember just when that time was. A sigh left her and she continued her steps towards him, the cautioned expression of her face gradually coming to an ease. Her shoulders followed pursuit, though her posture remained that of a noble. 'I should scold him right here for merely entering the manor,
' she thought, attempting to string together the words in the very way that Ichigo would, 'Ah, trespassing is what he'd call it,
' she concluded.
” She began, keeping a mild distance in between them. The name rolled off her tongue with a hard tone, like it always did, a steady composure through and through as she kept her attention on him. The harder she looked, the more she noticed just how much he had grown from the boy she met more than two years ago. He was taller, and his jawline became more refined from her perspective; he became a man
. This was no time to have a walk through memory lane, she scolded herself mentally, as he now stood before her; a guest in her home. Even if said guest was him
. Shaking her head of her thoughts, she continued to speak, "What are you doing here?
She merely watched him, cocking one of her thin eyebrows, her ears perked awaiting his response. While she waited, amusement began to play itself upon her features, most noticeably within the indigo eyes that could have been mistaken as those of an innocent child's in the presence of something particularly interesting. And frankly, it was no secret that she found the sight before her rather fresh in comparison to the days that had been spent in the Soul Society.

Hey what up comin' in hot for the attempt out of nowhere, RP samples fucking suck because it's mad weird to write the character in a total vacuum with no context, but I did my best so no flame pls
(In all seriousness though I'd be happy to discuss my take on her in VC and stuff, I just genuinely think it's hard to capture the character in a single snapshot like this)
It was another warm day in the Soul Society, but it seemed like things were changing more than Rukia had ever seen. The tree she was sitting in gave her a rather good view of practically the entire Soul Society, and in those precious few moments she could get to herself, she liked to enjoy the quiet up here. The Rukongai was suddenly a center of attention, and she couldn't say that she had ever seen the Gotei so invested in it. But, even if it was new, it wasn't necessarily a bad thing. She knew firsthand, after all, that life could be difficult for the people of the districts, and she knew that this would only be good for them. Still...
"It almost makes me feel like an old woman."
Though, she supposed, she'd felt out of place for some time now, much longer than just the past couple of weeks. She had pedigree, had a history as a hero in the war against Aizen, but that was all so long ago now. Whether people realized it or not, 400 years was a long time, and Rukia knew she wasn't the same girl that had gone on those adventures, the girl who hd nearly died on Sokyoku Hill. And wouldn't you know it, even that place that held so many memories was hardly the same anymore.
Well, she didn't have forever to reminisce. She looked downward toward the ground, stood up on the branch she had used as her seat, and hopped downward, the jump made a bit more elegant with the addition of a front flip, nothing more than a little flourish for her own amusement. As she landed effortlessly, extending her arms to the sides as if it were an Olympic event, she smiled just a bit to herself before beginning the walk back to the Kuchiki Estate. Even if she felt like an old woman sometimes, it was nice to remind herself she still had it.
