|Subject Post 1Subject: Kenji Harada[APPROVED, 2-3+] Mon Apr 02, 2012 1:31 pm|| |
[ V i z a r d T e m p l a t e ]
Name: Kenji Harada
Appearance Age: 15
True Age: 654
Kenji is a complex man, mainly because he completely disregards any and all rules and prefers to live as he dictates, believing that everyone is born free and should do as he/she wants to. This view is dear to him, as he prefers his own freedom rather than being shackled by fate, stating anyone can change their future. All they have to do is make the decision to try and they already have.
He also believes that a person’s heart is the most important thing that person owns and that a little “heart” is formed between people you meet and care for and that battles should only be fought to protect someone or to protect your honor; a view once shared by Azami before her death and followed all the more closely since Kenji learned of her love for him.
Due to his belief of freewill he doesn’t care what he says and often speaks his mind well aware of the consequences such an action may bring. An example of this is how often he called former Head-Captain Yamamoto "old-fart" or "old man" and refers to the Captains of the Gotei Thirteen by their given name with no honorific attached to their title, This gives him a disrespectful attitude, especially in others eyes. Kenji also treats everyone equally, whether they be Shinigami, Vizard, Quincy, Arrancar or human, though it’s no secret he has less love for certain Arrancar This attitude is another part of his personality that others find interesting about him.
Another aspect of his personality that others regularly comment on is Kenji's devotion to his family, friends and allies; despite the fact that many make up his fiercest rivalries. He has shown to be very protective of those he considers his friends. He can also be found napping whenever possible and spends most of his free time either playing his guitar poorly or tweeting various tunes on his harmonica; the sound of which Hiro says could very well raise the dead. He admits to carrying the harmonica with him at all times because it was a gift from Azami , describing it as a very important item. Music is usually the main vent Kenji has.
Kenji also smokes a single cigarette on the anniversary of Azami’s death , in remembrance of her. Despite his lazy attitude and social indulgences, Kenji has shown to be extremely perceptive, especially regarding other people. However, the laziness disappears completely when he has set his mind on something, like when he focused on his training in order to defeat someon, or during particularly difficult battles.
In battle he is incredibly stubborn, going as far to move his body by sheer force of will Despite this, though, his lazy nature is often highlighted during battle, evident from his usual slouched posture and defensive style. Once Kenji sets his mind on something, he won’t back out and will follow it through to the end.
one of Kenji's less shown traits is his seriousness, which appears briefly during his speeches and interactions with others and seldom effects him, though some occurrences has led him to hold his serious persona for extended periods. While more times than not he demonstrates a goofy and joking nature, not to mention a degree of laziness in his posture and facial features, Kenji can be serious when the situation calls for it; and when he does, even Hiro wisely steps back and moves out of his way.
It should be noted that when Kenji becomes serious, the change in personality is quite pronounced. He becomes more focused, his spiritual energy more sharp, while at the same time maintaining a degree of calm authority that serves to unnerve those he encounters. He is also generally quieter, and strangely, more observant to subtle details.
Zanpaktou Name: Genshuku
Zanpaktou Spirit Appearance:
Zanpaktou Spirit Personality: Genshuku is highly thirsty for blood and battle, wanting nothing more than to crush the enemy's skull underneath its own hoofs and willing to manipulate Kenji to do it.
Sealed Zanpaktou Appearance: Genshuku s the name of Kenji's zanpaktou, and takes the appearance of a broad-bladed sword with a rather short blade compared to more traditional katana, with simple dirt-covered bandages fro years of use to provide hilt wrapping; though they don't seem to cause his hand to slip at all when he grasps the handle. The blades length makes it more akin to a kodachi, while its actual appearance is more akin to a broad-bladed cutlass. The guard has two curved extensions from its long sides, with a line going through both sides to give it an eye-like appearance, while the wing-like protrusions are quite thin with delicate curved edges and a neat grey finish.
Release Phrase: Gathering Culmination
Shikai Appearance: When Kenji releases the sword itself remains the same, except for its increased length, resembling a nodachi more than an average katana. Bandages cover Kenji’s hands, wrists and forearm and an aura of misty darkness surrounds his being that forms his various attacks.
Shikai Abilities: Genshuku allows complete control over the forces of darkness, whether it be pre-existing, such as shadows, or those created by Kenji himself. He is also capable of melding into nearby shadows, Kenji can remain within a shadow without being forcibly removed via attacking the shadow he entered. This control over darkness and shadow-related form allow for additional effects as well, which are listed below:
Kage: Kenji's Genshuku allows him to manipulate shadows for additional effects, such as hiding from his pursuers and moving around at greater speed. This is the most basic form of Genshuku's power, though one of its most useful by far. The effects offered that Kenji has exhibited are listed below:
Kage Rakka: By cloaking himself in shadows and descending, Kenji can literally fall into a shadow and even move himself bodily to another nearby shadow mass with mere thought. This offers in itself a quick method of evading attacks and sneaking around, and proves especially useful when used in built up areas such as back streets and alleyways, as the buildings cast long shadows. The skill is also effective at night, though he cannot descend into true darkness granted by the night itself.
Kage Kurōku: By cloaking himself in shadows, Kenji can erase his spiritual signature and become more difficult for the eye to discern. He doesn't become invisible however, nor does he become silent. His feet still make noise, as does his breathing, though he becomes much harder to find in a shadowed area. The shadows summoned suffuse his limbs and hugs tightly to the contours of his body, absorbing other shadows and melding with them to ensure the highest degree of hiding possible.
Kage Shikaku: A passive skill that is active even when Kenji seals Genshuku. It allows him to see into and discern objects wreathed or hidden by darkness, either natural or made spiritually by others. This affords him full flexibility when he himself is sneaking around with darkness to cover his movements.
All Shikai abilities are renewed
Genshuku: Bōei Kenji's Genshuku Bankai state acts solely as a defensive tool. In this state, Kenji's body is overcome in a blast of blue spiritual energy that continually moves around his person, coating his limbs in a double-layered protective shroud that acts as a form of ultimate defense against incoming danger; the energy acting without Kenji consciously exerting his will upon it. The energy is continually moving, causing attacks to slide off its surface and away from Kenji's person, though tougher attacks can get through; in which case the second layer takes on an elastic quality that bounces incoming danger away. Kenji speculates that Meian first gained the inspiration to use Bakudō 94: Kurotoku Shiroseishin in an elastic manner after witnessing Kenji's Genshuku Bōei Ryū in use. Despite the defensive bonuses, by no means is it unbreakable. If struck with enough attacks simultaneously, the energy stops moving monetarily, meaning the attacks are free to strike against him, though it is currently unknown how the second layer would react should this occur. The shroud also requires a large amount of energy to sustain, and due to the concentration required to actually maintain it, Kenji cannot use his other Shikai abilities, or even his Cero when doing so.
Bōei Ryū: Kizetsu Tsume: The one and only offensive technique Kenji can utilize while using Genshuku: Bōei Ryū. The energy which usually circles his body as a defense is centered around his palm instead, momentarily losing its defensive properties to allow Kenji to strike offensively. The energy accumulates quite quickly and when fully charged, is released in the form of an energy field that possesses the same properties as Genshuku: Bōei Ryū, in that the energy is constantly moving. This causes the field to take on razor-like properties, cutting through the objects it comes into contact with, and then bouncing them apart with the elastic-like consistency of the second layer; making it an effective offense that doubles as defense when released.
Inner Hollow & Mask
Inner Hollow Description: the inner hollow looks just like Kenji but ll white like how hollow ichigo is.
Inner Hollow Personality:
The hollow side of Kenji very sadistic, when Kenji loses control of the hollow He goes around killing for the fun of it. He enjoys seeing the drops of blood hit the pavement and the splatter of it everywhere when they are being slashed up. He sees it is an art form, much like paint splatters, but with blood. If blood ever spills on him, he usually licks it off slowly, savoring the taste of the opponent. He feels no regret for any crime that he has committed. He has a short fuse, and if you light it prepare for an explosion.
The inner hollow tends to lick peoples blood from their wounds. If he decides it tastes bad, he will let them suffer terribly before dying. If the blood tastes good, he will promise to give them a swift and painless death.
Inner Hollow Powers: (What powers does your inner hollow have?)
Hollow Mask Appearance:
Hollow Mask: The Vizard remain in complete control while wearing their masks (unlike Ichigo's early unstable transformations). According to Aizen, the fusion of the two spiritual entities allows these Shinigami to reach power levels far surpassing that of either a Hollow or a Shinigami.
Bala (虚弾 (バラ), bara; Spanish for "bullet", Japanese for "Hollow Bullet") Bala is an Arrancar alternative to Cero. The technique hardens the user's Spiritual Pressure and fires it like a bullet. Although it is weaker than a normal cero, it moves about twenty times faster and can be fired at a much higher rate but the damage is much the same. Stronger Arrancar can also fire a more powerful Bala, while retaining its twentyfold speed.
• Garganta (黒腔(ガルガンタ), garuganta; Spanish for "Throat", Japanese for "Black Cavity") is how Arrancar and Menos-class Hollows move to and from Hueco Mundo. Kaname Tōsen and Kisuke Urahara have also demonstrated the ability to use the technique. It literally tears open the dimensional fabric separating the worlds, revealing a tunnel of whirling, torrential energy that must be focused and solidified to create a discernible pathway.
• Enhanced Speed
• Enhanced Stamina
• Enhanced Strength
• Enhanced Spiritual Power
• Efficiency: Hollow absorb spiritual Power (Reiryoku) from their surroundings, or ingest it from spiritual biengs, while shinigami produce their own natural spiritual Power, some of which is then wasted, or leaked out. By combining these two properties the Vizard can reabsorb the spiritual Power that they themselves give off, making their techniques much more efficient. They can also take it in from other sources, further boosting thier power.
• Cero: They also gain access to some Hollow abilities, such as the Cero blast. Loki's Ceros are a light blue in color.
• Mask Shielding: Bodily harm can seemingly be ignored while wearing their masks, as demonstrated by Ichigo's Hollow during his unwilling transformations. The Hollow mask can only be maintained for a certain period before its effects wear off: Ichigo can only hold his transformation for short periods (eleven seconds at first), while the other Vizard have seemingly no limit to how long they can last..
• Power Augmentation: with the acquisition of the mask via the subjugation of ones inner Hollow. A Vizard gains access to a additional and separate source of power, in addition to the Shinigami powers one already possesses. The accumulation of both powers together greatly augments the powers of the Vizard beyond what a Shinigami and/or Hollow alone would be capable of.
• Sonído (響転 (ソニード), Sonīdo; Spanish for "Sound" Japanese for "Transfer Effects") is the Arrancar equivalent of the Shinigami Flash Steps and the Quincy Hirenkyaku; it allows the user to travel at incredibly high speeds for short distances. Use of Sonído is punctuated by a brief static sound, in contrast to the "swish" sound caused by Flash Steps. Vatou is extremely profecient in Sonido, as he was profecient in Shunpo as well.
• Gran Impacto Cero A powerful variation of Gran Rey Cero, Gran Impacto Cero (lit. Great Impact Zero) will launch a beam of Cero towards the sky, creating a large ring in the sky. The energy emmiting from the ring, will create a large sphereical ball in the dead center and will drop it at an extreme speed. The ball will explode when impact is made creating a devestating and destructive blast
* Telekinesis: Vizard apparently hold varying degrees of telekinesis; For example, Ichigo, in his new Hollowfied form, has employed this ability to call forth his Zanpakutō with a mere flick of the wrist
Ketatamashii ittou no uindo (Piercing Blade of the wind):
This ability give Kenji a long-distance attack. When he swings his zanpaktou in the direction of his opponent, a blade of wind forms at the point of the zanpaktou, creating a scare like formation in the wind. As Kenji swings through, the "scar" is released and shot out towards the opponent. This attack is only as powerful as the swing for it, much like any other slash from a sword.
Kago no Kame (Divine protection of the wind):
This ability allows Kenji to form a temporary shield around his entire body, a full 360 coverage. The shield blocks all incoming attacks. (Kidō, sword, flying debris) This allows Kenji to get out of a tight situation. This ability has another effect. Since it is an ability with swirling wind, anything that comes nearby the swirling vortex will be blown around and shot out when the shield is released. It can only be used once every 5 posts
aiyou uindo no gouka (Solar Wind of Hell Fire):
This ability allows Kenji the control of fire, in a way. Much like solar winds which are a stream of a plasma ejected from the upper atmosphere of the sun, Kenji can use his enhanced wind to eject a stream of plasma at the opponents. The plasma forms at his hands, much like a cero blast. The way you are able to tell his cero attack from his Solar wind attack is that the solar wind is a brighter red which is almost blinding if you were to look directly into it.
Shuurai no Tlaloc (Lightning strike of Tlaloc):
Using the friction of air particles due to rapid air currents, Kenji is able to control lightning. When he uses this attack, Kenji points his finger to send out a single bolt of lightning, usually to the heart to create an instant death of his opponent, if hit right. Just using a single finger is the weakest form of this attack. If Kenji used the palm of his hand to shoot out the lightning, the magnitude of the attack is increased.
Eado-mu (Air Dome):
This ability is his final ability. It is very much similar to his Protective wind, but instead of only engulfing himself in a vortex of wind, this creates an arena, surrounding himself and his opponent, in a vortex of wind. This increases Kenji's wind powers and allows both himself and his opponent to defy the laws of gravity. However, this ability throws his opponent off from the loss of weight. Kenji uses this ability just to throw them off. It took Kenji a little while to be able to become use to the instant shift of gravity, so he is use to the light gravity and uses it to his advantage
Background:Kenji’s history starts many years ago back in the shinigami academy. He had just joined in anticipation of becoming a shinigami. He had got invited personally by some none seated shinigami a few days before due to his spiritual presser level. He never knew this is why he was hungry all the time. Kenji had no grasp as how to control his reiatsu level so when he walked into the warm class heads turned instantly. Even the instructor was taken back when Kenji’s presence was felt.
It wasn’t astoundingly high by normal standards but by the standards of what a student is like it was one of the highest in the class. Kenji felt odd with everyone looking at him but there was one girl in the class who acted like she didn't notice. In fact when he walked to her he in fact noticed her own presence of power. It was on his level which is proudly why she didn't notice it so much. He sat by her during every class and they quickly rose to become friends. Her name was Azami .
Through all the academy days they were together they were like brother and sister. However over time Kenji’s feeling started to grow further, but he kept it to himself. Even if she didn't love him for the moment it was alright, he was happy. But his happiness was not long lived. There class was on their second hollow hunting training mission with two brothers Loki and Hiro Arjan Kenji’s mentors. Though Hiro and Loki were there on the training mission they took off in the middle of training the Academy student to do their primary mission, and as soon as they left one of the students fucked up big time attracted five Gillian’s and many of the trash hollows.
Kenji took Azami and tried to run with her, it was clear they couldn't help. The shinigami with them where fighting a Gillian and some regular hollows. But a few where on their tails, between the two of them they both had a Shikai at this point but they were not very developed. Even so they managed to fend off a few with team work but it was futile in the end.
One of the stronger hollows got around them and impaled them both. He did not even see Azami black out. He was worried but he couldn't do anything. Kenji was paralyzed it seemed and his vision was slowly going black. Without knowing what happened to his dear Azami he blacked out. He had no memory of what happened between then and when he woke up. He just recalled waking up in the medical barracks with Azami right by him. While there they found out that they both got an Infected by a very rare hollow virus.
Someone had saved them and they were both fine, or so it seemed. After they were “healed” they both returned to their classes. It seemed almost everyone but a few of the teachers were killed. They had been the only two surviving students. It devastated Kenji personally. Ever since then he could hear the raging Minotaur inside his Zanpaktou speak to him more and more.
Whispering in his ear, lusting for battle, vengeance, blood, hate, He wanted it all. But he'd never admit it. He didn't notice to much change in Azami, but at this point he wasn’t even paying attention that much. He didn't know what to do. Over time he started hearing a small voice in his hissing in his ear.
At first Kenji ignored it but as time went on it got so much worse. Kenji and Azami had joined the 11th division together before he finally asked her about it. Told her about the voice and it turned out she has been experiencing the same thing. Together they did research on the symptoms and the odd circumstances. It took close to a year but in the end they found out what it was.
An inner hollow, they were terrified by this discovery knowing it was means for executions in the soul society. That night they decided to escape and go rogue. They were not seated members of the 11th so it was easier for them to slip out unnoticed. They did not want to leave but they did not want to risk staying. If indeed it was what they had within them then it would be best not to risk their lives.
It was soon after that, that Kenji and Azami lost control. There inner hollow took over and they gone on a rampage before being stopped by some vizards. They got them under control and looked at the devastated path they made together. They were deemed too powerful to be left alone. Deemed too powerful to even let live if they couldn’t get their act together. So they were taken back before Hiro and Loki.
Hiro and Loki were surprised to see their student Kenji still alive and as vizard so they decided that they were going to train their student and his friend. After many days of training Kenji came out Alive and mastered his inner hollow, but his love and friend Azami didn’t make it out alive, during the training she lost the battle with her inner hollow and Loki had to kill her.

That face is Faceclaimed for Moryukuna Len due to how REDICULOUSLY CLOSE IT IS TO LEN'S LOOKS. (Literally, look at my Face Claim list; I put a pic in there that shows just how EXACTLY THE SAME they look)
Sorry, but you're gonna need another face to use.
Believe nothing, no matter where you read it or who has said it, not even if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.
