Shizushio  SIDE_c_c_code_geass_drawn_by_creayus__448371f7bc17cf4fabc0f78cf687e2d0

» Appearance Written:

Shizu takes the form of a rather short, slim woman with fair, very feminine features. With a small mouth, a sharp chin, and striking green hair paired with bright golden eyes that have a tendency to stare piercingly at whomever catches her attention. More interestingly is the Estigma on her forehead which forms a red symbol over her forehead, though it is usually obscured or hidden entirely by her bangs. Her hair, in addition to being a striking viridian green also is quite long and has a silky flow which catches the eyes when she moves around.

As if her natural features weren't enough to catch attention. Shizu has a penchant for frequently adjusting her outfit at regular intervals, even going so far as to emulat the outfits of those she interacts with. In this manner it's not uncommon for her to run into someone she knows with both of them wearing identical clothing, this seems to be intentional.

I. Personality

» Personality:

Shizushio can be called a great many things: Haughty, Picky, Proud, but ultimately all of these culminate into a core personality trait wihich simply branches and manifests in various ways. And that is a sense of restlessness. Awlways changing her look, always finding new places to explore, Shizu struggles to be satisfied with what she has in her own hands, always looking to search for more to expand herself and try for something greater. To get a better shake of things, to BE better, to be SEEN as better.

This can at times seem at odds with what may appear to be a very lazy nature, but rather this is simply a symptom of how quickly she can become distracted of her own thoughts, seeming to become tired or lethargic as her thoughts wander to other things. Since going to the world of the living, this has only been exacerbated with her discovery of all that humankind has created to amuse itself.

» Likes: Seeds/Nuts, Crunchy Foods, High Places, Scenic views, the Internet, Doujinshi.

» Dislikes: Thick Soups, Squishy Foods, Black Hair (Are you even trying?), Brown Hair (Only slightly more redeemable than Black Hair).

I. History

» History:

Once upon a time, a small branch of a Noble house was in strife. Having suffered many losses in a war, the head of the Noble House struggled to produce a suitable heir for their family. Weak, sickly children plagued him and his wife, and for decades they prayed that they would be blessed with a healthy child to help maintain the integrity of their family. And those prayers were answered, a child was born stronger than it's brothers and sisters, most of whom perished in the harsher days of winter. And that child's name was Iyuki.

This Noble House was the Tori clan. A fairly small, and weak clan on it's own, but when a sickness swept through the family, and left the young weaker son of seven children to be the head of the household, things took a turn for the worst. Iyuki Tori was the shining hope for the family's reputation. Not only was she strong and capable, but she held promise for the powers of a shinigami and soon after she turned 25, she enrolled in the Shino academy. Iyuki graduated within four years and achieved a seated position in the First Division. But the girl was not one for honor or responsibilities. Though she held the hopes of her clan on her shoulders, she ultimately held nothing but ambition and self interests without the slightest notion in her mind that she would lift a finger to run the family.

However, that ambition would be her undoing. When Iyuki began to speak to her Zanpaku'to, she drowned the weapon in demands and commands. At first, her Zanpaku'to simply fell silent, waiting to see if they would prove themselves worthy despite their poor attitude. But Iyuki's impatience proved dangerous. Ultimately, her Zanpaku'to began to slowly open up as Iyuki grew in strength. Even though she could not stand that bossyness, she could not help but admire the woman's strength. But ultimately, that strangth turned out to be shallow.

Iyuki managed to learn the name of her Zanpaku'to and after several years gained the ability to manifest her Zanpaku'to spirit and thus attempted to achieve bankai. But this was nothing like the tasks she'd partake in before. Again and again, the girl's Zanpaku'to struggled to try and beat some sense into her wielder, and yet the girl could see nothing but the promise of a reward just beyond their capabilities. Iyuki dreamed of becoming a captain and abandoning her family to instead chase prestige in the Gotei. Even as her weapon warned her she was pushing herself too far, the girl still pushed on, even going so far as to attempt Bankai training while stationed out in the world of the living.

But rather than a hard-won victory, she was punished.

The girl's Zanpaku'to was .... unique. A spirit that was focused and determined. Unwilling to Yield for the benefit of her wielder's foolish excuse for ambition. She had spent months, years trying to speak. Going unheard thanks to Iyuki's fixation on her own desires. It was only when learning about her zanpaku'to became ...convenient for her aspirations that Iyuki had spared even a single thought to her zanpaku'to. And even then, she was faced with nothing but demands and impatience. The young woman's Zanpaku'to saw into her wielder, having seen her grow in strength, slowly gaining shreds of the power and authority that she sought with such fervor. And seeing just what she chose to do with that power, the Zanpaku'to made a decision.

If Iyuki could not subjugate her, then she was not fit to wield them.

And thanks to that very same stubborness born from greed and hunger for power. The Zanpaku'to did not find herself subjugated beneath her wielder's feet. But instead, found their dying frame growing cold at her feet.

She understood the situation well enough. As a weapon, she had failed. For all of her work, she had been unable to nurture her wielder. And now she would soon be dead. And yet, the blade felt no sadness, and though she knew that it would be best simply to rest and wait for them to be found.

But instead, she mustered the power that her Wielder had been far too incompetent to harness and focused on maintaining her manifested form, and left her Wielder. Wether she survived or perished, she didn't bother herself with such details. Iyuki had never earned her respect, much less her concern. she abandoned her wielder, and turned her attention to the World of the Living. For the first time in her existence she had a choice in what she would do.

And so she decided to better herself. Given that her Wielder had refused to develop her in any meaningful or unselfish way, Shizu decided that she would not only learn to utilize herself to the utmost, but that she would never treat a weapon as carelessly as her former master, and so she spent the next five years training with various weapons, certainly there was no shortage of them in the wake of the wars and battles that took place across the world of the living.

I. Natural Abilities

» Natural Abilities:

Armed Combat Specialist:
As a weapon, Shizu has a natural talent with wielding weapons that comes with an intimate knowledge of what it is like to be wielded. Not only that, but she has a deep and invested interest in learning the ins and outs of every single weapon that passes through her fingers. Having known the indignity of being swung around like a blunt stick, she treats each and every implement of combat with the utmost respect and care. As such, she is incredibly competent with both Hakuda and the utilization of weapons, whatever manner of weapon they may be. So long as it's a melee weapon.

裏斬術 Urazanjutsu (Reverse Zanjutsu)

A specialized fighting style developed by Shizu. This style of combat utilizes other beings as weapons and is a combination of martial arts, grappling, and dancing. USing close, intimate contact and an intense knowledge of leverage and focused spriritual force, Shizu's style can at times be confused for something akin to Judo as it involves mainly grappling, throwing, and swinging an opponent about. But it is a far more involved process, as the aims to control every one of the target's limbs and almost lovingly heft them about, guiding the target's movements rather than resisting them, and utilizing the force behind a target's motions to feed into her own. Wielding them with all of the care and attention deserving of one's weapon.

In practice, this is more often useful when fighting alongside someone else, though if she is able to catch an opponent off guard, she is more than able to utilize this style on an opponent as well.

Brutal Physique:
Because of her incompetent master, Shizu has fairly mediocre if not awful general skills when it comes to what a normal shinigami would be capable of. All she has to go by is whatever meager attention Iyuki had paid in her time at the academy. For the purposes of Kido and Hoho, this has allowed her, even with considerable effort, to be ...passable. And abyssmal in the utilization of Hakuda thanks to her old Master's pampered lifestyle. To compensate for these lacking skills, Shizu has tempered her manifested form to the extreme. She has trained herself relentlessly, and has continued to do so, esting herself and pushing her limits of speed, strength and durability. Necessary components to achieve the level of mastery with weapons and her own manifested form.

I. Racial Abilities

» Racial Abilities:

Acceptable Hoho User:
Of all of Shizu's skills as a shinigami outside of the obvious Zanjutsu skill, she has at the very least managed to have some budding talent in the use of Hoho. Which is quite impressive given how terrible she is with Hakuda and Kido.

I. Zanpakutō

» Zanpakutō Name: 死津潮 (しつしお ) Shizushio

» Zanpakutō Spirit: As her own Zanpaku'to spirit, there is no separate internal spirit. She herself is the spirit, existing to spite the failures of her once-wielder.

» Inner World: Thanks to separating from her Wielder, Shizu managed to tear a small portion of Iyuki's inner world and keep it for herself. The Inner world itself takes the form of a Harbor in ruins. Broken destroyed ships, failing architecture, a beautiful and elaborate port slowly falling apart at the seams, and with a massive cut shrn through the streets, marking where the rest of the inner world should be.

» Sealed Zanpakutō Appearance: In it's sealed form, Shizushio takes the form of a long, green Nodachi with an intricate Red marking close to the hilt which matches the marking on Shizu's forehead.

» Sealed Zanpakutō Power: None.

I. Shikai

» Shikai Release Phrase: あやす Ayasu (Cradle)

» Shikai Release Action: Upon speaking the weapon's name, Shizu brings the sword to her chest, and the weapon promptly vanishes into her body.

» Shikai Appearance: During release, Shizu's zanpaku'to vanishes entirely into her body, seemign to disappear entirely.

» Shikai Abilities:

浚渫 Shunsetsu (Dredge):

The Zanpaku'to seems to vanish when released, but in actuality it suffuses into Shizu's surroundings as it breaches the barrier between her own inner world and reality. Everything within 15 meters of her body can be considered a part of her Shikai. And at any time, she can dredge up sunken ships from her inner world into reality. Causing them to emerge from any solid surface within range. Ships can range from small lifeboats to portions of massive ships, though the range restriction of her ability means that many larger ships are cut apart when being brought up, never allowing anything larger than her area of influence to be summoned.

These objects can simply be spat out into existence, or summoned in motion with Advanced speed and strength. While these crafts cannot be manipulated telekinetically, as a part of Shizu's shikai she can wield them as if they were an extension of herself, and even the slightest touch from Shizu can cause a full and complete shift in momentum or direction without losing speed or force.

Shizushio  Empty Re: Shizushio

Thu Apr 06, 2023 7:28 pm
While conceptually an independent zanpakuto isn't impossible, this approach to it in particular doesn't quite justify such a thing occurring. A zanpakuto developed enough to wholly manifest on its own would require an extreme degree of development from its owner, which is at odds with its master having been unable to achieve even bankai. Considering the zanpakuto spirit typically dies with the wielder, much greater justification for how this spirit is still alive and separate is necessary.

This is frankly closer in its power level to a bankai, given the extreme manifestation of the zanpakuto outwardly. This should probably be pared back fairly significantly.[/adm]
