The man is well known by quite a few names, the most used however is his real name, Griminir Ulysess Ukitake. Beyond this however the man has many commonly used nicknames that many tend to use. One such nickname is the Lion of Judah a name no-one truly knows the origins of, possible links to his sealing kidos or his links to different faiths, the true origin have yet to be stated by grim who merely writes this name off as just another tale. He has also commonly been refereed to as simply "the Clown" reference to the mans quite intriguing appearance as well as his usual attitude. The name isn't one the man dislikes however more often than not he prefers it used to his real name, simply seeing it as a fun play on reality. » Age:
Grim is a being that remains very cryptic about the beginnings of his life, constantly avoiding the topic in preference to the wonderful concept of leaving it to ones imagination. Some details about his past that some may know correlate with events from certain time periods where as some seem to correlate with obscure novels or a fantasy life one could only question the reality of. His favorite game is playing with peoples knowledge and testing wits so its only natural when the topic of conversation becomes his life he opts to play games rather than be straight forward. The truth is he knows his past all to well but currently that information is something he doesn't share so easily. None truly know the mans actual age just that he himself keeps very close to these relevant times very frequently meaning some questions could be raised from them. » Gender:
Grim is a figure that due to his pure imposing size and frame couldn't be described as anything other than mannish. Though his demeanor may not be that of a burly manly man, being an individual with a very kind heart and possibly slightly effeminate disposition, he is very much still male in all capacities. Some could render than him being such a thin and weak willed man could be an interpretation of his machismo not being as large as many, but in reality Grim simply prefers to be the more reserved guy. » Association:
Grim tends to associate himself fairly loosely with the organisation of the gotei 13, being a shinigami his fit here seems quite simple, yet the man is not a person who actively pursues the avenues that this organisation entails. Grim has an outlook on life that is much more callous and about having fun, the joys of living are the most important thing to him. This take on such things means simply that he is quite happy to be a current member of the gotei even pursue missions and anything necessary of him, however his main loyalty is yet to be confirmed as he believes in following that which he believes in, regardless of where it takes him. To this end he could very well be seen as an unknown in the basic scheme of things following what makes him happy over duty. » Appearance:
Grim has a very unique appearance, a factor none could deny. Everything about the man is an oddity his unique quirkiness adding to his appearance in many ways. The man stands as a lanky and tall man, standing at roughly over nine foot tall, the man is quite an imposing look to him, often leading to him bending down to avoid attention being drawn to his height. The strange attributes of the man doesn't end here however, his very style matches this physical weirdness, the man can always be seen sporting clown makeup in the form of a star upon his eye and red lipstick makeup running cheek to cheek. Usually the man avoids the whole basic shinigami appeal, though every occasion requires a different approach. Grim has been known to sport a favored outfit however, picking the gaudy over everything else, he takes to the idea of a long sleeve white shirt covered in hearts, with the beautiful addition of a mantle made of dark crow feathers. When it comes to his hair and any other beauty pieces however, Grim is uncaring, leaving it shaggy and hanging the blonde mess of hair sits bellow a red hood with two heart shaped hanging pieces.
Grim has often been seen as the loud and energetic type, though often times he tends to quite down worried of those around hims thoughts. Despite this clownish behavior Grim is a man that within most situations is collected and capable of remaining calm and under control. He is a man who values friendship and comradeship above all else believing that those precious to you are something worth fighting for no matter the cost upon yourself. Within a fighting situation though Grim can often empathize and see the many different sides of things allowing him to be capable of examining his strategies and the way things must be done making him quite hard to stir into an attack or the such. some have found the mans quiet and drawn away personality a bit underwhelming at times, not really knowing the mans capabilities, in the same retrospect though Grim isn't a man to overestimate himself, he knows his limits and knows when he has been out matched and more or less out gunned. The man often thinks himself and all of man equal to each other.
Grim is a man who cant really be conned into something he wishes not to do, he has no true battle lust, rather wishing to only fight when it is necessary or to aid his friends. During a battle he often can take some pride within his own abilities while showing that all to natural lack of interest within the fight, this often makes him someone feared for a factor of him being unwilling to go all out unless he feels that it is necessary or wants to end a battle quickly.
Grim is rarely overly serious or ever really angered. but within certain situations he can turn completely mental, ready to kill people without a second word. This usually occurs in instances that harms his loved ones or his friends. He would no longer just be his usual self he would become extremely psychotic destroying everything and anyone who stood between him and his target until anyone who was involved was torn to pieces. Though this side of him is extremely rare and barely ever rearing its face, and after it does all he could feel is guilt and sorrow for what hes done. Grim deeply cares about the opinions of others, often worried about their approval of him, making him very intent on not upsetting or hurting those who know him.
During a battle Grim isn't one to let down his guard, he is often cool and unwavering in his resolve of things. He oftentimes will not go into a battle ill prepared, he keeps himself well aware of his opponents level and is capable of adjusting to fight them so and manipulate his own level of strength to match them. Grim is quite a tactical mind, whilst he analysis his opponents weak points, and during his battle their abilities, he often devises tactics and options in how to defeat them. The man isn't a real happy go lucky fighter, though he is ready to put his all into it, he dislikes the way of fighting, always looking for the option of talking over fighting.
Grim has a vast system of likes and dislikes, his unwavering devotion to his likes obvious. He loves learning and advancing his knowledge in things, for this reason he is a bit of a scholar being someone who could sit there for hours with a good book, though in truth hes not someone who finds that much enjoyment from practically exercising this knowledge. In terms of food Grim isn't very fussy, being someone who has great manners will appreciate whatever is laid before him, but when it comes down to his all time favorites there is only one thing for him, a salmon and avocado sushi roll lightly coated in soy sauce. This is a bit of an odd choice in meal style considering his refined nature, but has grown much loving of the dish after visiting many sushi restaurants in search for his favorite shrimp dish. When it comes to a drink of choice he is very simply pleased by the taste of lemon-aid, Grim doesn't like alcohol due to the pure intoxication of the drink and the foul taste he associates with it. In women Grim has always admired fair haired women who are more natural and regular sized, possibly even a bit taller than himself
Grim isn't a man with a huge amount to dislike, though when it comes to a few finer things the man isn't so happy go lucky. Grim has never really liked people who are stupid, disrespectful and untrustworthy, he finds them to be those who bring others down and take what they want. It disgusts him to see people willing to sacrifice others to get what they want believing that they have given up there humanity and will never find happiness. Grim as stated before when it comes to food doesn't really mind anything and is happy to have whatever, though things like junk food often seems less appreciated than other foods with Grim, preferring nicer things or home cooked meals to a takeaway burger per say. With drinks besides alcohol he doesn't really like things like caffeine having a yet again dislike for the taste and also dislike for the idea of it.
What little is know to others is that the man is no liar, he was born to the Ukitake clan and was the youngest brother to the famous Jūshirō Ukitake. He grew in the soul society during the vast events that took place, there during the good times and the most horrible of moments. A boy who's most defining trait is the name he wore, Grimnir Ukitake. A name that would linger as a question of why he was how he was, Grim never really lived up to the expectations of that which came before him but the truth was he never wanted to he just wanted to live as himself.
Grim grew up in a large family, the baby of them all he was often seen as just another face among them. Grim tended to find solace in his own company most of the time enjoying the idea of pretending he was someone else. When his brother elevated to the level of captaincy Grim was to young to remember all that came with this all he could remember was eating for the first time in months, Jushiro secured their family financially and made it so that Grim and his brothers and sisters had the oppertunity to grow without worrying.
The rest of his story is a boring one that streches on with no real promising notes, he was a naturally talented kid when it came to shinigami arts but was less than exceptional when it came to zanpakuto ability or feats of strength. The man went through shino academy graduating with a slew of grades that were medicore and some that were beyond amazing. The path that streches forward? who fucking knows it is an ongoing battle and this is only the first chapter.
RACIAL ABILITIES» Kidō:
Kidō is the ancient ability of demonic arts using Reiryoku to form different magic like arts. The essence of Kidō is the control of Reiryoku in order to fuel the art to have certain effects, be it offensive, defensive or support. The user is able to utilize this power to effectively produce a variety that have been labeled as a sort of magical effect. Grim is an avid user of Kidō being capable of producing strong levels of these spells due to his innate control over Reiatsu combined with his knowledge of chants and effective results. The man however has constantly been seen as more of a Bakudō and Kaidō user, preferring these to any offensive skill. His Hadō capability whilst quite high is not on the same level as his innate knowledge within bindings, barriers and healing. The man has a gifted talent at understanding the formation of Kidō, being strong enough within practice to produce Kidō of the Bakudō and Kaidō variety at the same strength and quality without any chant, though the same cant be stated for Hadō. » Reiryoku:
Reiryoku is the innate inner energy that all shinigami draw from. It can be expelled from the body and thus give the ability to use the energy to fuel such acts as kido, hoho or even the capability of manipulate it via control of Reiatsu. The clown has an immense amount of stored Reiryoku, this means that in most circumstance he could be considered to have an extremely powerful amount of stored energy to simply use as he wishes, Unfortunately Grim has an incredibly hard time controlling the exertion of this power. To this extent he is like a dam, slowly leaking water, every second he is constantly filtering out large amounts of Reiryoku which can be used like a battery. Whilst This leak is constantly filtering Reiryoku it appears that the amounts filtered out are extremely considerable compared to most, being equatable to many other high tiered users. This however is only a minute amount of this energy, within the man is a considerable well of Reiryoku, constantly resupplying with each breath he takes making it a truly terrifying inner commune of power. » Untapped Faucet:
This technique although quite simple is an effective use of ones inner Reiryoku, especially if the user has vast amounts. The user is capable of unblocking his pathways and letting his Reiryoku expel at incredible rates, this ability enables the user to become faster stronger even gain more energy to use however the downside comes from the immense fatigue of this. In essence this ability functions simply as though one were pulling the plug and letting the water release out, the water will come rushing incredibly fast causing unbelievable amounts of energy to expel providing incredible boosts in speed and strength as well as waves of overwhelming force, but will quickly deplete that which is inside. This energy is of course one that is constantly fueled and will over time begin to re fill the proverbial tanks, however the exhaustion that besets the user whilst the tap is opened is constant and the only way to stop this is to lock it back up once again, an act that would cause immense strain on the users body. » Reiatsu:
Reiatsu is the energy and force created by the control over the users Reiryoku, the produced energy is commonly converted to outward pressure that affects those around and could be used as a power structure to ones capabilities, this energy is one that fuels several aspects of a shinigamis powers and could be seen as a vital part of them. Grim has an incredible talent when it comes to the control and use of his Reiatsu, to the point of being capable of controlling not only output and consistency but many factors that are affected within the very stream of Reiatsu. To this extent he is capable of affecting his releasing slow releasing Reiryoku by turning into Reiatsu that interacts into the very atmosphere around him, allowing him to store vast amounts of Reiatsu to use at any time without affecting pressure or becoming an external force like it normally would. The Clown is capable of controlling and expelling vast amounts of Reiatsu, creating a solidified energy source that he could wield, shape and change to his whim. The man has an extensive control over this energy that he produces but their is a key downfall among the ability, that being his area of control, the man is capable of this extensive unhindered dominion only within a very small radius around him. He does however have a very keen control over the vast qualities of his Reiatsu being capable of changing the stability of this energy to high levels to create mass explosions, or changing the the substances key attributes to make it stronger than even the hardest of metals. The mans control is on such a level he can change aspects of the substance by forcing changes within his Reiatsu, allowing for the capability of even changing the properties of this force. To this end Grim is able to change the qualities of the substance in the form of elemental states. To this level he has the ability to manipulate several differing elements to a variety of levels. Key effects carry over with all of these changes however as his control is limited in capacity and constant changes would be far to taxing to do in conjunction. » Reiatsu infection:
Grims' Reiatsu is a quite overbearing substance, and due to his vast control of it within its dormant form the man has a very small area that this energy expands out to, this area is a zone of control when it comes to the concern of reiatsu. The mans own Reiatsu within this area could be seen as that of a virus intent on infecting and changing any and all active Reiatsu energy within its field. The energy goes about changing the structure of others Reiatsus composition to make its unique properties much less capable. To this extent the man is able to take control of the simplified form of Reiatsu and force its substance to take on his unique qualities. This effect allows the man to effectively change the Reiatsu of those around him being physically exerted and turn it into his own power, however those with vast amounts of Reiatsu can overwhelm this power due to his own finite levels of reiatsu, thus only being capable of infecting much smaller amounts of the force. Another issue of this power is the control over simplified reiatsu is an ability that many could be capable of and thus until he forms the unique traits of his own reiatsu he is at risk of this energy being turned against him. However the possibility of this power enables him to turn ones own power source against them making his quite a problem for avid Reiatsu users.
SEALED POWERS» Zanpakutô Name:
Whilst the name is truly unknown to Grim, its meaning is clear and the name is all to fitting. Sanguijuela or in an alternate translation "Leech" a name that comes from Spanish origins and details his Zanpakutos very unique consumption of Reiatsu and ability to draw it forth like a leech draws blood. In turn this Zanpkauto is very similar to a parasite to its user, being a hindrance much more than a useful piece of ones arsenal. » Zanpakutô Spirit Appearance:
Sanguijuelas form is one opposing the man, a figure confident and well groomed, a being that has no insecurity whatsoever. The being an overwhelming light that burns to even look upon, but never falters to allow one to look. In comparison to how Grim sees himself, clouded in darkness this being is the truest person he could ever imagine. A picture of perfection that Grim could never truly see because simply it doesn't wish to be seen by the likes of him. The figure is the perfect height, build, stature he exudes confidence and boldness in everything he does. The being behind all the light is one that has immeasurable power in Grims eyes, not because of the control he has but simply how he flaunts it. Never one to worry this creature within is a being of brash action and indiscriminate posturing, a factor he could never achieve. And thus the spirit takes the appearance of his greatest crutch, his greatest desire, and his ultimate opposition. » Inner World:
Sanguijuelas inner world manifests itself as something overbearing yet quite beautiful. An empty ocean as vast as the eye could sea the water colored a translucent dark red, thicker than any normal water and holding an overbearing weight. The truth is these waves and currents are actually Reiatsu encasing the world in its depths. Sand lay beneath these waves and light flickering down through the red hued water, making a beautiful expanse with the sunken crumbles of what was once a city, making it feel like a painting below the depths of the ocean if the ocean covered the earth. Any who come to this plain are in for a problem if they have no control over reiatsu, the red died energy acts much like water and renders any who enter here without the skill choking and drowning in its power. The only real life bellow here is Sanguijuela them self, finding these depths to be the ultimate feeding ground. » Zanpakutô Appearance:
Sanguijuela takes on the basic appearance of a sword, though modified to fit Grims more colorful personality, at least on the outside. The handle is adorned with a beautiful rabbits fur cross guard that leads into a well crafted black silk wrapped handle handle. The blade itself however has a much more gritty appearance at first glance the blade is dulled and the steel faded and withered. However with its power the blade beings to change, the more Reiatsu deposited the more the blade begins to shine, a beautiful coated silvered with inlay-ed engravings crossing the blade. » Reiatsu Empowerment:
Grims' Zanpakuto is one of very few gifts, the blade itself is dull and incapable of cutting anything it touches at first. However it is a sword that with time and resources gains strength. The sword itself seems to act as a sort of lightning rod that can be used to harness him Reitasu to a new level. The sword is capable of drawing in all Reiatsu around it as its formed empowering the blade to unbelievable lengths, the sharpness and strength of the sword being powered by this energy. The leeching effect of this blade is able to work at a short distance from a target however the effect of storing and taking Reiatsu is quite slow, this process can be sped up quite a bit when the sword interacts with sustained Reiatsu, this is done by the sword touching the user of said Reiatsu. Once the sword interacts with a being with Reiatsu it will begin to leech away at their energy reserves, each moment that passes the strength and effectiveness of the blade growing with the intake of Reiatsu. Their are a few major downfalls to this ability however, one being the limited range he has, if one were to exit his area of effect the blades leeching ability would be stopped until they moved back into his area of effect. Another key trait of this blade one may consider a downfall is the blades disloyalty, any who wield this blade are capable of using its power, and whilst his own Reiatsu is immune to its leeching effect due to the unique traits it shares with the zanpakuto this blades immense sharpness could be turned on its user. Grim can also feed the blade his own Reiatsu however the effects are much less practical and much more dangerous as doing this will see a vastly slower increase in power due to the blades similarity in Reaitsu as well as a constant siphon he cant stop unless he drops the blade and removes himself from the area of effect, after this the effect will stop until he restarts it, but this act leaves the man weaponless.
