Yoruichi Shihoin [1-3, Hazard Rank A] SIDE_HOLLOW_0153-019


Psychological Analysis



Duty and Responsibility.
These are tenants that were instilled into Yoruichi at a very young age, as the Heir to the Shihoin family defending the realm and the sacred items which are held within the Family itself. Unto this end, her family also controlled the Stealth Force for countless centuries. As such, subterfuge, covert operations, and any number of tasks that many might consider unsavory all deployed at the behest of the Head of the Family. Not for themselves, but for the Realm as a whole.

In this way, Yoruichi, despite whatever shifts and changes that she has undergone over the years, holds within her the tools that were forged to carry out this role. To eliminate threats in both the form of enemies and even allies that would serve as potential threats to the Realm of the Dead.

This aside, Yoruichi garnered a VERY considerable reputation even in the days of her Captaincy and her time as Head of her Family as a relaxed and lighthearted woman. Carefree, laid-back and even seeming to be genuinely uninterested in the tasks of her family in any form of urgency, going so far as to make exceptions and leave things off in favor of relaxing. This carefree attitude was matched only by the ferocity she could at times display when the occasion called for it.

Stealth is a manner in which one's true actions and intentions are obscured from a particular individual. In some instances, this means erasing one's presence almost entirely such that one almost doesn't exist. Other times, this means misdirecting a target with misleading or even false behaviors for the purpose of distracting or tricking them into paying no mind to what one is actually seeking to achieve. Yoruichi, for all of her disdain for the shackles of her noble life and the seeming lacking passion for the duties she was burdened with, was still a master of both forms of Stealth and as a result, garnered a reputation for being considerably moody.

As such, while Yoruichi is naturally moody and fickle, this only amplifies her strange and unpredictable mannerisms. Her penchant for pranking, general mischief, and simply doing whatever she wants makes it all the more impossible to discern her true and honest thoughts, though in reality, this fleeting and seemingly errant shift of moods and thoughts is the culmination of the effect of both her previous titles and the events she has endured throughout the course of her life.

Her life as a Noble required a detachment from others in order to uphold the ultimate burden of duty above both personal connections and feelings.

Her life as a Captain demanded the interests of the Central 46 and the Gotei as a whole over all else.

Her life as Commander of the Stealth Force, a life of constant vigilance and scrutiny even of her closest friends and allies with the knowledge that at some point she may look upon those very same individuals at the end of her blade should the need arise for it.

Her life as an Exile, separated from family and protege, from comrade and ally, branded a traitor and making do with assisting in her closest friend Kisuke to prepare for a conflict they saw coming for a century.

The life of a Veteran, fighting through war, invasion, and conquest at the hands of those that inflicted their presence upon the world of the living and soul society alike, bringing up and reigniting those old ruthless habits.

And finally, the life of a survivor. Escaping Hell. Living with the consequences of wars and failures, and watching the collective worlds creep further into what seems like entropy as the vestiges of peaceful society seem pushed further and further into battered holdouts against the apocalypse.

To many, Yoruichi seems very much the same playful, flirtatious, cunning woman she always was. To others, she seems to have garnered something of a hardened sense of responsibility following the death of her brother and her return from her extended absence, seemingly taking on far more than what her old whimsical freedom-loving self may have abstained from.

And others may yet see another more damaged side as a combination of loss, war, forced survival, and the schism between herself and those she's considered closer to her than any others. From this, she has garnered a subliminal sense of loneliness which has resulted in a mild paranoia. War has taught her to expect enemies from anywhere. Hell taught her to expect combat at any time. The death of her brother and the loss of many over the years has taught her how easily what few things she values can be taken from her. And the distance she'd put between herself and those she would otherwise trust has only exacerbated these occasional bouts of volatility, particularly within the world of the living.

Beyond just the world around her, Yoruichi has also grown to question even herself. The role of spectator she took whilst her brother suffered through the pains of trying to run the Shihoin family. The abandonment of her own daughter. Even her alienating Kisuke, her closest friend.

Such has she changed that she at times cannot even recognize herself, and sometimes even doubts her own ability to make proper decisions. But these are mistakes she has no intention of simply carrying to her grave. Her budding sense of responsibility and her growing interest in the affairs of her family are merely a part of her attempts to ground herself and find an anchor to keep herself from being lost to her own unpredictability. And despite having pushed away or otherwise distanced herself from individuals from her past, she has in a slow and gradual way attempted to reconnect.

The Yoruichi of today still struggles with her own overdeveloped unpredictable moody behavior and the paranoia and irritability that has come from the experiences from the last 400 years. But she is also notably more grounded and even responsible, going out of her way to try and connect with others and even consider the titles and positions she had once abandoned in hopes of finding solid ground to save herself from the side effects of these traumas.




Appearance



Yoruichi is a slender and shapely woman at first glance. In such an instance that you catch her without her seemingly noticing one might observe a soft almost flawlessness about expanse of dark skin she often displays without shame. Her hair is a sleek black that shines notably in most situations, especially when within her feline form she sometimes adopts as is normal for some members of the Shihoin. Her long, waist-length hair is generally kept within a long ponytail generally accompanied by chin-length bangs which frame her face.

Generally speaking, it won't be long before one finds a set of bright piercing gold eyes shifting in their direction when observing for any length of time. Eyes which, in most cases, hold something of a bemused smile about them even when her mouth is concealed or otherwise not visible. When focused these pupils have a very slight vertical narrowing to them particularly when she is expressing anger or disdain.

Generally speaking Yoruichi can be found donning tight, form-fitting clothes in her normal interactions, and often she will wear minimal or otherwise breathable clothing as to enjoy a sense of proximal nakedness as she finds clothing to be an annoyance at times depending on her mood. Other times she will wear thick, baggy outfits though even in such instances she stays away from fleece or other hot fabrics as she can often feel suffocated.

Her general style of clothing tends to be on the modern end of things, deviations from this are generally worn for a specific purpose (tradition, giving off a particular impression, ect) but given her own preferences she will almost always default to showy modern outfits.

Unlike most other souls, Yoruichi and her family have an ability to transform into felines. This ability seems to be limited to the form of a small black cat with a rather deep masculine voice and bright flashy golden eyes matching her normal ones. It is unclear if this voice is a byproduct of the form or a conscious choice. More recently, Yoruichi has gained a tattoo depicting Chain Links originating at the base of her spine, winding around her body, before finally ending just over her heart.



History



Early Years

Yoruichi was born a noble member of the Shihouin Family. A princess born above so many others, and being the firstborn she was destined to a specific purpose: The Head of the Shihouin Family. For that very purpose, her every motion and gesture was to be molded. Her way of speaking, her way of conducting herself, her very thoughts were to be molded to the purpose of her ultimate destiny. And as her countless teachers and instructors taught her these ways, she could not help but wonder why. While the family was known for law, authority, and the running of the Punishment Force, a doctrine which produced many powerful and steadfast souls, more than anything else her family discovered a particular...fickleness about her.

Yoruichi learned everything with startling proficiency, not ONLY what she was SUPPOSED to do, but how best she could defy those guidelines and restrictions. As a young woman, she would find pointed and precise means of insulting, teasing, and even embarrassing her elders and betters, using her knowledge of noble behavior as a weapon. This problem only escalated when she grew old enough to be taught the combat arts. While certainly entertaining, there were only so many ways that she could torment the adults with her words, but Hakuda and Hoho opened up whole NEW avenues. While initially proud of how quickly Yoruichi caught onto her lessons, soon the adults around her began to see her as a scourge, rapidly surpassing her peers and often catching her instructors by surprise.

Perhaps most dizzying about Yoruichi was how suddenly these bouts would come on. One moment, she would be the picture of proper behavior, and the very next she would have found some new means of causing havoc within the estate. Moody, fickle, and devious almost to a fault, the young girl delighted in how easy and indeed: how enjoyable it was to rattle those who sought to control her. To contain her. Where some young nobles often found themselves depressed and crushed beneath the weight of responsibility, Yoruichi thrived and savored not only embracing, but also railing against those very responsibilities seemingly at a whim.

It wasn't long until Yoruichi began to sneak out of the Estate. She was caught several times, but each time she grew better and better at evading notice. Until finally, something happened. She found within herself an entirely new and unique ability. Many rumors surround the potential behind what it was that caused it. Some wondered if some sort of shihoin experimentation had caused the change. Others wondered if some sort of deity had seen fit to bless the child with this ability. Others simply wondered if the young girl simply was a Youkai guised as a soul. All the same, it happened: she discovered the ability to turn herself into a cat. Hiding this ability from her family, Yoruichi soon found an incredible amount of freedom. Coming and going from not only the estate, but the entire noble section of Soul society as she wished, and she began to explore the rest of the realm she had been born into but never seen.

With this, Yoruichi would come to know just how different her life was from those outside of the walls she was raised in. From the quiet, gentle people in the inner districts, to the wild and dangerous place that was the outer districts. And it was among these districts that she found something that fascinated her. Someone just as sharp and just as ....interesting as she found herself. Initially she simply watched him from afar, and yet unlike so many others that she simply slipped around without a worry, it was Kisuke who was the first outside of the Noble walls to ever find her when she didn't wish to be found. He even was the very first to figure out that she was not a normal cat when in her other form.

True to her strange nature, she found herself seemingly drawn to him on a whim and with sudden startling force. Sometimes she would avoid him entirely. Other times she would spen her entire day with the strange young man, listening to his strange thoughts and the things he did while in the rukongai. The little contraptions that he put together with that clever head of his. And unlike so many nobles who fancies themselves smart or skilled: this young man was......humble.

No, humble was an understatement. Everything about this young man seemed to crave the concealment of his cleverness. While those around him in the Rukongai saw his wit as something....mild and entertaining, yoruichi recognized something below even that. The same skills that had been hammered into her for identifying dangerous persons. To tell when a person was lying. To see that which others did not want to be seen. All of the skills which would later serve her as Soshireikan. All of them came into play to see just how ...frighteningly smart and careful this young man was.

And that very same attentiveness caught on to just how much he seemed to enjoy her presence. Adults would grow annoyed. Other children would grow bored or even scared of how suddenly her mood could change. And yet this fellow seemed to enjoy how ....wild and moody she could truly be. Before she knew it the two of them were friends. They played together, trained together. Before she even knew it, she was passing on the very same lessons that she herself had been taught to some small extent, and yet he surpassed even her in those regards. And so she began her plot to have Kisuke adopted as a Ward to her family.

Her elders were.....pleased when her own behavior seemed to suspiciously improve over the course of several months. Unaware that all of her wildness was being fueled toward a purpose now. And before long, she made her move. She introduced one of her father's most trusted friends to Kisuke, a man who also similarly enjoyed Yoruichi's errant nature. The man took a rather immediate liking to the boy and before long she had gotten exactly what she wanted. The young man was accepted as a ward and even offered a position in the Shino Academy such that she would serve once Yoruichi came of age to join the Gotei 13.

However, just as she felt the taste of success: there was something else to come of this ...victory of hers. Following Urahara's official acceptance into the Shihoin Family as a Ward, her father's friend: Ryumo Tsukabishi, Leader of the Detention Unit, pulled her aside and informed her of precisely why her strange request had been accepted so quickly. For the first time, the man she had known as someone so gentle and lax suddenly was looking at her in a serious and dire manner. The young man, Kisuke Urahara, was a special type of individual. In much the same way that Yoruichi had caught on to the more unique facets, so too had Ryumo. Kisuke was a dangerous child. A mind with machinations and .....aspects which meant that he was not just special: but threateningly special. He informed her that as soon as he joined the Shino Academy, he would be identified as a potential threat to Soul Society and imprisoned for the rest of his life.

However, Ryumo also stated that unlike so many others similar to Kisuke, he had somehow managed to bond particularly well with her. Meaning that so long as she was present, he could be considered a contained risk. That is, if she continued to exist as an Heir to the Shihoin family head. By this time, her parents had produced another child: Yuushirou. And while he seemed to adore his sister and even take after her strange nature, already some in the family were debating due to Yoruichi's nature if Yuushirou would make a more fitting heir if they could manage to contain him before he developed similar.....rampant characteristics.

As such, if she continued with her wild and reckless ways and neglected her duties to the family, she would not only lose that position, but Urahara's status as a Contained Risk would be compromised as well. Had it come from anyone else, she might have felt threatened, but she saw nothing but concern in the man's eyes. Ryumo told her that going forward Kisuke could prove to be one of the greatest Shinigami Soul Society had ever known, but that such a thing hinged on her fulfilling her duties.

She was disgusted. Angry. Not just at the idea of Kisuke being imprisoned but also the notion of her precious little brother being hammered into the role she had been skating around her whole life. But most of all, she felt guilty. If she had never brought Kisuke to her family this could have all been avoided or at least postponed. If she had taken her own role more seriously, Yuushirou would never be in danger of bring forced into the position she could not abide. In all of her life she had certainly caused untold stress and duress, but never had she truly endangered someone. Ryumo could see the pain in her face, just as easily as she could see his sincerity. And so, she told him that she would go along with his advice. From that day on, while her ...wildness certainly remained, she became notably more dedicated and serious about learning the proper fate she was destined to. She threw herself into her training with Kisuke, and it wasn't long before she began to conduct herself with Authority and purpose.

Her parents rejoiced and the family seemed incredibly impressed, believing that she had finally grown out of her rebellious phase. Only two people ever imagined that something else was the cause of this change. Ryumo, who of course knew. And Kisuke, who almost immediately suspected it.

Shinigami Life

Yoruichi breezed through all of her academy classes and exams without even breaking a sweat. Being the Heiress of the Shihouin family more or less assured her a position of high standing and yet both she AND Kisuke found themselves as high ranking Shinigami within the soul society. However, unlike her predecessors who simply took up position in the Omnitsukido, Yoruichi ALSO decided to join the Second Division alongside Kisuke. The two of them grew and Yoruichi began to notice more and more what Ryumo had told her about her friend ages ago. As the both of them grew, not only did Kisuke grow to almost rival her in many regards, but as he began to learn more about the Soul Society and the realm at large his intellect seemed to consume such information with a startling voracity. Not only did he come to excel as a shinigami, but before long the man was thinking of new ways to improve upon the things that were a part of everyday shinigami life.

While she herself had ....a somewhat tenuous and flimsy relationship with her Zanpaku'to, who she truthfully felt more comfortable fighting without, Kisuke seemed enthralled with not only his own Zanpaku'to but with the items in general. And soon, it seemed that curiosity and enraptured attention spread to just about everything around him. One day he approached her, telling her of an invention of his he had concocted in order to help Shinigami achieve bankai. And for the first time she felt..... afraid of something Kisuke had made. At first she had been skeptical, after all his various contraptions had been ONE thing, but the ritual of gaining and furthering one's relationship with their zanpaku'to was something that had remained more or less the same for ages.

But......when he showed her the ability that he had awoken with the process, and then, when she herself, incredibly fascinated with the potential, had plunged her own blade into that strange doll: For the first time she felt ....concern about something he had made. This was far more than just a slight improvement or a quirky invention. This was something.....different and profound. And in her heart of hearts she began to wonder. As she felt those NUMEROUS danger flags she had been taught to look for in the punishment force, and as she saw what he was truly capable of she began to doubt herself: Was this another mistake? Would Kisuke one day expand beyond the bounds of her ability to keep him grounded and rational?

And even more terrifying: Did he know that she felt this way?

And yet, even though she convinced him to keep his invention to himself: They continued to grow closer. As much as she feared and worried over the man, she found herself driven more and more to stick her neck out for him. Thanks to his invention, even though Kisuke insisted that he had only expedited an inevitable process, Yoruichi found herself in the Position of Taichou in the Second Division and Simultaneously taking up the position of Soshireikan of the Omnitsukido. Such that the two entities became practically entwined. an annoyance admittedly, because of the compounded responsibilities with the running of her own noble family. But she persisted regardless. Somehow, it was all so easy and entertaining alongside Kisuke.

Not only that, but she even found a Protege for herself. Her bodyguard from the Feng clan, she had found particular interest in. Shaoling Feng, who would later come to be renamed Sui Feng, drew her attention almost immediately. While they did not have quite the same sort of long-term relationship that Kisuke had, she still found herself quite taken with the ....earnest focus that the woman had for her position and presence in the Stealth Force. And yet before her very eyes, she saw the woman being hammered out into a tool, just as she had been, just as her Brother almost had been. And .... so, she took it upon herself to take the girl under her wing. Not JUST to have her serve as a bodyguard, but also to try and break her from her familial restraints. She found no shortage in guiding the woman, helping her relax as best she could, and of course: tormenting her endlessly, even taking some joy in just how absurdly jealous of Kisuke that the girl seemed to be. And yet she maintained a distance.

Unlike Kisuke, whom she confided in MOST things, she found herself unable to quite connect the same way with Soi Feng. Every time that she found herself growing more familiar with Sui, something pulled her back. As if she had some fear that Ryumo, retired as he was, might come and have a conversation about her akin to Kisuke's. And before she could fully understand why she distanced herself so, before she could come to terms with her concerns about Kisuke. Before she was able to see her brother Yuushirou grow and enjoy the freedom her own compliance had afforded him: Sosuke Aizen happened.

She might have panicked. She might have even made mistakes. And yet, when that dark night had unfolded she found herself. Prepared. Not just because of her own experience within her position. Not just because of the skills and lessons that she had learned as a child. But because of Kisuke and his endless.....preparedness. When the impossible happened she found her mind snapping to things he had said to her in the past. Little 'what ifs' that he seemingly jokingly had always gone on about. It seemed like he had them all the time, and yet she remembered perfectly when the time actually came about to act on them.

Exile

What could have been a tragedy and an incredible loss, because of Kisuke's brilliance and some other factors had become something else. She found herself a fugitive, in hiding and even a criminal. she had no idea what would come of Yuushirou her brother, and even less what would happen to her Protege in the soul society. But even with all of that, she realized: Without Kisuke it could have been so much worse. And from that night on, she found her fears about him assuaged. If nobody else, she could always trust Kisuke to be in some way prepared.

And for the next hundred years she found herself practically working for him. Helping him in restoring the officers affected by Sosuke's experiments. She came to use her cat form more and more and found that strangely there was ... freedom in this new existence. Not only from the life she'd left behind, but in how free she was to be ....her fickle self. But like all things, that eventually came to an end. As Kisuke suspected would eventually happen.

Once the events in Karakura began to unfold, she found herself once again working more actively with Kisuke to assist in the exploits of Kurosaki and his companions. From the rescuing of Rukia Kuchiki to the ultimate rebellion of Sosuke Aizen against the Soul King. She suddenly found herself in some small way not connected, but working in tangent to the life she had once known. She was reunited with her protege Sui, and even came to find that her brother Yuushirou had taken up the position she had once held, but still held that unique .....glee and happiness that she had always known in him. It seemed as if finally she might have the best of both worlds. Her freedom in the world of the living, and the ability to see those she had left behind.

Farewell Halcyon Days

The attack from Ender on the world heralded something ..... new. A powerful new threat and one that was so much more global in scale than the rebellion from Aizen Sosuke. Humans died across the world of the living in tremendous numbers and with the advent of this invasion she found herself in a position she had never found before, one where even Kisuke was unable to find a proper solution, and even worse: It seemed to be effecting him.

With the defeat of Ender, it felt almost somewhat akin to the rebellion of Aizen. A threat had been put down, but had seemingly broken down the Gotei with it. With the defeat of Ender, the soul society seemed to withdraw within itself, as if cowed by the fact that the Western Branch was no longer within arm's reach. However, it was World war Three that truly came to test her. As battle after battle swayed the balance of power and the world of the living that they had known it began to change drastically.

In truth, there was something she relished about living in a world full of combat and struggle. What was an era of strife and terror for many humans, and an exhausting string of struggle for her closest friend, was something else entirely for Yoruichi. As she watched one section of civilization after another be blown away in the human world, she felt something blossom inside of her a little by little, there was nobody left alive to concern herself with. And city by city, there was less and less of humanity to preserve as she fought. It was a joy she did her best to hide from others, but she was acutely aware that if anyone, Urahara made note of it.

And yet her efforts still accomplished little in the grander scheme of the war itself. As Humanity was successfully kept from complete extinction, and yet the world marched on with the tatters that it had left.

During this time, she had found that the friendship she held with Urahara had begun to sway into dips and bounds of something far more detached and far MORE attached than she had thought possible. At times, she wondered why either of them continued to tolerate one another, and at other times it seemed as if they were on the cusp of some brilliant happily ever after. But the realist within her was never capable of holding onto such notions. Time marched on, and with it the ebbs and flows of their semblance of a relationship.

It was more than a hundred years later that this sweeping tide would finally catch up with them. Yoruichi found herself pregnant, by some act of a cruel deity, and vanished from the world of the living during one of their many disagreements. And it was perhaps a blessing that this occurred when it had. In the lucid cold reality of her time alone, as she held the young girl in her arms that they had somehow managed to make together, she understood all too well that it would take far more than a child to break this cycle. There was nothing more sobering than delivering her own child by herself an entire realm away from the father.

There was no way that this cycle, Nor in all honesty: the ability of either of them to raise a sane and stable member of society from childhood. And so the child was entrusted to the only person who she trusted with such a task. Handing over her child and having her brother swear to never reveal the child's parentage, Yoruichi returned to the world of the living, and for one the lull of her distance with Urahara spanned further than usual. He had his ways to find out what had happened, and she knew that she had no intention of having the discussion of why it was that she'd left their child in the soul society, and as the years ticked on it felt as if it would never end.

But just as surely as they had drifted apart, time slowly mended the bridge between them. Between Urahara's running of his shop, and Yoruichi's renewed aggression against demons. Until finally an event occurred which she could not abide. With the beginning of the Demon Incursion in Soul society, Yoruichi's attention was immediately drawn to soul society and the sheer chaos that had ensued. The Captain Commander, and countless other Captains seemingly disappeared amidst the conflict, and those responsible for the events merely faded into apparent obscurity.

With Soul Society nursing it's wounds, Yoruichi took it upon herself to hunt down those who had been responsible as well as those within the Gotei that had suddenly gone missing. And as it were, it seemed as if the Gotei was incapable of getting that particular job done. Even if Yoruichi was perhaps not capable of killing everyone responsible, she could at the very least gather information.

After a short period of gathering information within the Gotei itself, she traveled to Demon World. Despite the overdeveloped bloodlust that she had procured over the span of World War Three, Yoruichi was careful in her mission. A combination of Family Artifacts and some assistance from Urahara, while trying to give him as little information on what she was doing as possible, she managed to blend in with the demon populace and proceed with her investigation for almost half a year. Difficult, but an endeavor that would seem simple in comparison to her second destination: Hell.

Upon arriving, it was almost unrecognizable from the intel she had received about the place previously. What had once been a dizzying and complex system of layers and cities of suffering sinners had completely collapsed. From the sheer number of demons moving through it, and the enormous influx of souls from the world of the living being cast down, the Layers themselves had deteriorated incredibly to the point where it seemed on the verge of collapse on top of one another. The barriers that protected it and the guardians buried beneath the weight of humanity's scum. As if Hell were intent on returning to the primordial pit it had once been.

Before Yoruichi could begin to sort through the mess, she found herself set upon by both Sinners and the 'New guardians: the Bones of the Kushanāda, those undying guardians even having been slain ages past rising over the corpses of those that had taken their place. Three years later, Hell had finally begun to regain some semblance of organization and the chaos settled sufficiently that she was able to be recognized by the crazed Guardians and the Will of Hell finally recovered from it's seizures induced by the casualties of World War Three. Yoruichi had, through the archives of her family, known vaguely that the Will of Hell decided the structure of that eternal pit, which changed frequently to adapt to the influence of it's eternally growing population as if warped by the sinful heights humanity climbed. However, she had never imagined that Hell would simply obliterate itself, reducing Hell into it's crumbling state as a result of being overwhelmed.

With the realm beneath the world of the Living finally stabilized, Yoruichi was finally able to collect what little she COULD with what was left of those she had been pursuing. At long last, it was time to return to the world of the living. With the Tsumikagi (罪鍵), the Artifact with which she had been able to enter hell, she finally took her leave of Hell.

When she finally returned, she learned very quickly of the death of her Brother. Immediately stricken by grief, she managed to attend her beloved sibling's funeral before coming to terms with this new grief, and the shambles which her Family seemed to have fallen to in her absence.

She had succeeded in her mission in hell, and returned to her own personal hell that had formed in her absence.




Equipment



Tsumikagi (Key of Sin, 罪鍵) - An artifact taking the form of a small elongated metal cube, which now takes the form of a winding chain-link tattoo along Yoruichi's body. This device operates and allows the user to freely move in and out of Hell by modifying the user's Chain of Fate to emulate the reiatsu of a Kushanāda and thus avoid expulsion or obliteration.


powers


Immense Spiritual Power: As a former Captain of the Gotei as well as one of the Heads of a Great Noble Family, Yoruichi boasts a considerable spiritual power that puts her at, or even above the output that can be found in many members of the Gotei and even some active captains.

Formidable Strength: Contrary to her slim form, Yoruichi is almost monstrously strong. Capable of dealing devastating damage to even powerful enemies with armor-like abilities by the sheer force of her unarmed physical blows, only made all the more terrifying when applying some version of augment or shunko, Yoruichi more than boasts enough strength to be terrifying to most individuals even with nothing but the clothes on her back, sometimes without even those.

High Endurance: IN addition to her ability to take a punch, Yoruichi has an abundant amount of stamina that comes with the level of mastery and proficiency she has garnered over combat over the years. From her feats with effortlessly executing fast, long-distance shunpo without tiring, and especially her experience in seemingly endless constant combat when pushed to her limits: Yoruichi is a terrifying fighter, and one that rarely runs out of steam.

Nekohenshin (猫変身, Cat Transformation):
Yoruichi, like many of the shihouin, possesses the ability to shape-shift into a black cat at will and without any particular strain or energy use in the process, being know to even transform back and forth in the middle of conversation with others being none the wiser to it happening, though she is also capable of a more dramatic and drawn out transition between forms. In addition to the ease with which she is able to shift these forms, she also is able to maintain it as long as she likes, having gone upwards of 100 years without returning to her human worm with the only real notable drawback being that she forgot she had to wear clothing.

This transformation can be partial as evidenced by her tendency to partially transform during higher levels of Shunpo. Some have even surmised that her ability to transform is derived from Shunko by using channeled kido through her body to change shape.

Legendary Hoho: Few who practice the arts of Hoho have NOT heard of the Legendary Flash Goddess Yoruichi. Having been know to have an astounding talent for the ability and even pioneering several other hoho techniques as well. Even after a century without practice or even having been in her human form, Yoruichi was more than capable of matching and surpassing other Hoho experts during the Invasion of Soul Society by Ichigo and Co. While she has slipped from that eternal throne she had once held in her time prior to Ender's attack, she still remains a Master in her own right.

Utsusemi (空蝉, Cast-Off Cicada Shell): Way of Onmitsu, 3rd of the Shihō. A special technique in which the user leaves behind an item or shred of clothing infused with their spiritual energy in order to leave a tangible after-image in the midst of the move in order to generate a very believable illusion in their place. While primarily a Hoho technique, the molding of the afterimage and the abandoned article of clothing infused with spiritual energy into an illussion can be likened to a kido spell. This ability is incredibly hard to see through as it tricks the target's normal senses as well as one's Reikaku.

Shunpo Nagare (瞬歩 流れ, Flash Step Flow): An advanced form of Shunpo in which the user channels spirit energy through a single part of their body, executing an incredible high-speed motion using only a single limb or extremity rather than the whole body in order to execute blindingly fast attacks.

Hakuda Master: As former Commander-in-Chief of the Onmitsukidō, Yoruichi's hand-to-hand prowess exceeds well beyond what most could ever hope to accomplish in the field. Having combated even opponents that have transcended the boundaries of their normal soul (Arrancar, Evolved Aizen) without even the use of a weapon, Yoruichi is a powerful combatant whose specialty is direct physical confrontation. Such is her prowess with Hakuda that she foregoes the use of her zanpakuto by merit of her hand to hand prowess outpacing her proficiency with here own soul weapon by such an incredible degree.

Hanki (反鬼, Reverse Demon): A technique used by Yoruichi in order to nullify the spiritual attack of an enemy by expelling spirit energy at an equal and opposite speed, pressure, and composition. This ability is usable only by sheer merit of Yoruichi's fine spirit energy control as well as her sharp ability to perceive the make-up of an enemy's attack.

Creator of Shunko: Creator of the Hakuda/Kido art Shunkō. While the art itself has expanded and grown to be utilized by a number of individuals since it's creation, Yoruichi is perhaps the most prolific and expansive user of the technique in both pushing it to it's limits and expanding on what it is capable of doing. Very few have come close to her own mastery of the technique.

Shunkō (Lightning) (瞬閧, Flash War Cry): A complex art in which the user combines the manipulation of external Reiryoku of Kido and the manipulation of internal Reiryoku of Hakuda. The combination resulting in a freely flowing cycle of the user's Reiryoku throughout and around their body causing an explosive output of spiritual energy. In this manner the user's unique Reiryoku element is generally expressed. Yoruichi's in particular takes the form of Lightning.

This flow of energy serves as both weapon and armor, protecting the user during combat and allowing explosive releases of spiritual energy as it is channeled. Yoruichi's in particular generates brilliant white wings made from a pale lightning. This release of energy generally has the effect of obliterating clothing and materials along the user's back and shoulders, thus making it necessary to wear combat or armor which does not cover this area to avoid the material being destroyed during this technique.

    Shunkō: Raijin Senkei (瞬閧 雷神戦形, Flash War Cry: Thunder God War Form):

    A higher level of Shunko created by Yoruichi by not only circulating but solidifying Reiryoku into a more tangible form. This particular form crates a ring of electrical spirit energy filled in with drums reminiscent of Raijin. While in this form, Yoruichih is capable of unleashing enormous columns of concentrated lightning, and continuously unleash bursts of explosive electrical energy as the cycle of Reiryoku is further expanded from the user's body, cycling the energy that is released so explosively in order to freely and effortlessly cause destruction without the tremendous energy drain that would normally come from such actions.

    This technique also partially transforms Yoruichi's body in the process: generating a set of cat ears and some other secondary feline features while it is active.

    Shunkō: Raiju Senkei: Shunryū Kokubyō Senki (瞬閧 雷獣戦形 瞬霳黒猫戦姫, Flash War Cry: Thunder Beast Battle Form: Flash God Black Cat Warrior Princess):

    The Ultimate Level of Shunko release achieved by the creator of the form herself. In this state, Kido is channeled throughout the entire body to such a tremendous extent that any and all clothing on the user's body is obliterated and replaced with a veil of condensed Kido. This is achieved by combining Shunko with Yoruichi's Nekohenshin technique creating a hybrid form, creating cat ears, a tail, exaggerated feline qualities such as her pupils, teeth, and even forming clawed paws on her hands and feet. This form armors her in pure electrical kido energy boasting not only the highest defensive and offensive capabilities, but also a surge of energy through the user's nervous system. This was so overpowering that when first developed, Yoruichi would almost completely lose the ability to perform conscious thought while within this form, resulting in a wild and unpredictable rampage of intermittent laziness, interest, and outright violence without Kisuke to help reign her in, though nowadays Yoruichi has managed to maintain conscious control while in this form, but still becomes notable more excitable and moody when she does so.

    The incredible amount of Reiryoku control not only allows heightened benefits of earlier Shunko forms, but also has such fine control of Reiryoku permeating such an intimate level of the user's body and soul that her spiritual pressure actually changes on a fundamental level throughout the duration of it's release, and since garnering control of the form itself, Yoruichi has gained the ability to freely manipulate her own Reiatsu on an intimate level, such that she can FEEL like an entirely different person.




I. Sealed Powers


» Zanpakutô Name: Yaseineko (Wildcat - 野生猫)

» Zanpakutô Spirit Appearance: Yoruichi's Zanpaku'to spirit takes the form of, you guessed it, a Black Cat with a sleek frame and yellow eyes. While the cat itself is hard to keep track of, at times one can see it's tail shift into a large black scythe.

» Inner World: An enormous replica of the underground training area from her childhood on a massive scale. This world fluctuates in layout from massive yawning dark pits to enormous jungle gyms of stone and ladders. Though in all iterations the faces of the rock have small holes from which her Zanpaku'to spirit seems to spawn from whenever you lose sight of it.



» Zanpakutô Appearance: It resembles a kodachi or wakizashi which she kept sheathed horizontally behind her on her lower back, similar to how Suì-Fēng carries hers in the present day. On the base of the pommel is a small dent in the shape of a pawprint.

I. Shikai


» Shikai Release Phrase: Ganbatte Kudasai (Good Luck)

» Shikai Appearance: Upon release, Yoruichi's zanpaku'to turns into a blakc fluid which melts into her skin and forms a sprawling tattoo across Yoruichi's body. Though the tattoo seems to take a new form each time it is released, close inspection shows that the tattoos are not solid but consist of closely packed 運.

» Shikai Abilities:

Okorimono Ni wa Fuku Ga Aru ( Luck exists in the leftovers - 残り物には福がある )

This ability allows the user to drain Bad Luck from targets within 40 meters. While Shikai is active, good luck will flow freely within its range, but only to a limited capacity. One will find that coins always flip to the side desired, any falls and slips will luckily occur in such a way that the person remains completely unharmed, and any number of small, meaningless shreds of luck occur within its radius. This does not, however, apply to Yoruichi but simply every other individual within the radius. Targets struck by Yaseineko are stained by this effect for 6 posts, even if the Shikai itself ends within that duration.


I. Bankai


» Bankai Release Phrase: Pray to the smiling fangs, Weep at the Clawed Feet, Suffer with edge of your own blade to your throat: Jigou Jitoku (Wildcat: One's Way - 野生猫 : 自業自得)

» Bankai Appearance: Upon the relase of Yoruichi's Bankai, the shikai peels itself from Yoruichi's skin and emerges as a dark black ink consisting of 運 symbols.


» Bankai Abilities:

Kurai Un ( Dark Luck - 暗い運): the primary ability of this Bankai is the transformation of the fluid it consists of into a such a large volume. While it is initially surmised that Yoruichi's Shikai produces good luck, the truth is that it actually pries Bad Karma from individuals within the radius, which is then converted to this dark fluid on the release of Bankai. As such, Yoruichi's Bankai can range from about a couple dozen gallons to an endless ocean of ink. This dark fluid can be condensed and distributed at will as this Bad Luck hits targets hard depending on how much it is condensed. At base, the fluid will cause rampant bad luck in a similar scale to the Shikai.
However, if this fluid is condensed into a blade, a target struck by it will have the fluid infused into them instantly, causing massive failure as poor fortune causes rampant organ failure, cell death, cancer, and rapid atomic decay.
Each post, Okorimono Ni wa Fuku Ga Aru produces 5 gallons of Dark Luck for every person within it's radius, or infused by having made contact with Yaseineko. Creating a blade in Bankai requires 600 gallons of Dark Luck.

RP SAMPLE


It would have been nice to be cursed.

The thought crossed the mind so carelessly through the mind of the woman that was idly lounging across the tiles of the Shihouin Estate Rooftop, staring up into that endless sky as her life's events drifted like flower petals through her train of thought. She turned her head just enough to glance down below at the nearby courtyard, where the voices of relatives drifted up and mingled with the calm to create dissonance with everything else. It seemed as if the family had simply begun to peel away at the seams as of late, and even now with her back in the Soul Society, she couldn't help but find a deep and unrelenting sense of justification for having peeled herself away from this place for so many years. Scandal after scandal piling ontop of her family's name.

Her own sharp senses betrayed her, catching a small snippet of dull murmurings enough that she realized that they were talking about the current head of the family: Chidori.

She sat up and sighed, a smile playing across her face as she stood up and slowly stretched her limbs to get herself a bit more limber. Briefly, she simply considered moving to another rooftop. To ignore the gossip happening below entirely and simply find some other place to try and nap. But just as quickly as the thought had entered her mind was it usurped by her more impish tendencies. As if by magic, Yoruichi was standing calmly at the side of one of the gossipers, her hands calmly folded in front of her. Her mastery of Shunpo was such that she simply seemed to melt into existence as if she had been there all along.

"That certainly was a bit of a mess, but I suppose relationships can always be a bit of a gamble. Speaking of which, how has YOUR husband been?" She interjected directly, a smile on her face warm as could be as she turned her attention to one of the women who had been making comment about Chidori's relationship situation. There was no shortage of sheer mirth when she saw the expression of the noblewoman lock to a sudden panicked uncertainty. The combination of being caught talking about the head of the family, the sudden realization of one such FORMER head appearing beside her, and the sudden race of information about her OWN marital status speeding through the woman's head.

IN truth Yoruichi only knew that this woman in particular had married a low Noble from the Fifth division. Honestly the details escaped her at this particular moment, and in fact now that she saw the woman up close she was almost certain that they had a perfectly happy marriage. That was irrelevant. What WAS relevant was that even the happiest and most stable of married women would feel the knife of doubt in their chest when a former Soshireikan suddenly brought their marriage into question, casual or otherwise. Even now, Yoruichi saw a dozen uncertainties and doubts fly across the woman's face. It was entertaining enough that she barely even HEARD the shaky, stammering apologies and backpedaling from the two women. IN some vague sense she recognized that they were trying to play their gossip off as mere jokes followed by a sudden case of excusing themselves from the situation.

She watched as the pair promptly began to hurry away, the far-off urge to chase simply brushed aside for the time being as she simply basked in the satisfaction she had in throwing a wrench into the conversation. But all the same, her attention eventually drifted in the direction of Chidori's own estate as she DID begin to wonder if she should check in on the woman. She smiled to herself, gently slipping into the doorway she'd been standing beside and taking a moment to gently dig her heel into the floorboards. One of many hidden compartments sliding open as she took a brief moment to scan her surroundings in case of any onlookers. Then, she simply shrugged and began to disrobe, slipping her outfit into the compartment and pushing it shut with her foot. Just as soon as it had locked into place than was the woman gone, a Black cat appearing at the door to Chidori's estate and promptly hopping in through the window to begin surveying inside.

Overall
There is a fairly significant disparity between the Yoruichi you outline in the personality and the Yoruichi outline in the history. It would be highly recommended to speak to Slayer regarding Shihoin lore and plotlines, as well as Gamma regarding Yugiri's upbringing and Locke regarding Urahara.

She checked in on Yugiri often, having introduced a large number of cats to not only the Shihoin estate, but also a good portion of the Gotei, she used her feline form to keep tabs on her daughter...
Per Slayer's word, Yuushiro would not have continued to care for Yugiri in Yoruichi's stead had she been actively present and keeping tabs, and would have told her to either leave entirely or raise the child herself. Also, he would not have allowed for a sudden influx of cats.

What she couldn't garner herself she was able to procure from Kuukaku...
How would Kuukaku know anything more than she would?

Nekohenshin (猫変身, Cat Transformation)
It's established PH lore that this is just a Shihoin family technique, it is decidedly not something this unique.

Unmatched Hoho
Given her history and the wide span of time since canon, as well as the other characters that have been on the site over the years, she is decidedly no longer unmatched in her skill.

Shunshin Chōhengen
Please explain what this actually does.

Shunkō: Raiju Senkei: Shunryū Kokubyō Senki: ...even to the point where she can focus the ability through isolated portions of her body.
That's a ludicrous degree of control, to say nothing of it being unclear how she could actually manage that level of transformation in such a contained area.

Zanpakuto
Even if she doesn't use her zanpakuto, it's still assumed that she is sufficiently knowledgeable regarding it to have become a Captain. The current writeup indicates a total lack of understanding.

Skill Sheet
-Lower Strength to Advanced.
-Lower Hoho to Master. While she is still unilaterally one of the greatest masters of the art, the growth of these techniques through PH's timeline and her professed lack of growth in your history would mean that she almost certainly has not kept up with Grandmaster level characters.
-Zanjutsu should presumably be Advanced, assuming she has achieved Bankai to reach the former Captain qualifications.
-Lower Hakuda to Elite. Her skills are established as extremely refined, but she does not display the degree of innovation or unique application beyond Shunko which would indicate a level of Master compared to other Masters.
-Will Skills cannot be adequately checked until the issue of the history/personality disparity is addressed.[/adm]
