» Appearance Written:

Zen stands at 6’0”. He has silver hair that reaches down to his shoulders. He has a fairly lithe build that tends to disguise his true physical strength. Even while in the Seretei he tends to wear a simple white, long sleeved, button down shirt, with semi-formal black pants, and black dress shoes. He often keeps his Zanpakutō in his right pocket for quick access. He has piercing blue eyes and a fairly calm, slightly soft voice. When he is giving orders his voice deepens and becomes commanding. When he gets angry, his eyes iris’ turn from blue, to deep red.

I. Personality


» Personality:

Zen is one of the calmest people you will find. Very few things, if anything no one has been successful yet, cause him to lose his cool. There is a rumor that when he loses his cool he might become as violent and unpredictable as a Kenpachi.

He enjoys keeping order and following the law to the best of his ability. He seeks to bring arguments to a quick and calm resolution, but he is willing to use force to restore order, starting with non-lethal, and using lethal force only when necessary, something his Zanpakutō allows him to do effectively.

He has enjoyed music since before his death. Spending so much time on Earth since the 1900’s his enjoyment of music has only increased. He can often be found in his music store selling instruments, old music formats, teaching classes, and sometimes preforming concerts for charities.

While he enjoys things to be orderly and lawful, he also enjoys seeing chaos ensue in certain situations. He knows that it is a part of nature, and only steps in to calm the satiation when it is getting out of hand.

Zen has another side to him, one that few see and live to tell the tale. Beneath the calm, relaxed façade hides a monster. While few things get under his skin, those that do, drive him mad. The switch on a much more sadistic side, a more authoritarian side. When he is in this state, though he is not in a blind rage, his attacks are much more forceful, his words commanding, he will do whatever it takes to have his target follow orders. His irises turn a crimson red when he is in this state.

Likes: Most music though he prefers classical. Sweets. Order. Deep down inside he likes to watch chaos unfold as he stays cool, calm and collected.

Dislikes: Metal music. Unregulated chaos.

I. History


» History: Zen was born in Paris, France a 24 years before the French Revolution to a wealthy aristocratic family to the name Roy Delacroix. Throughout his early years he had a great affinity towards everything that had to do with music and his parents greatly agreed to further his studies into the musical arts. At the age of 17 he was greatly known throughout Paris as a music prodigy and he became a man that everyone looked up to and many women wanted to marry. His parents arranged many women to date him hoping that he would propose to one but he never did. While he had great interests in them, he never felt the need to carry on the family line.

One day when he was tending to the rose garden in his own home, he discovered a man in the middle of the rosy briars. The man didn’t know how to speak, or do much of anything. He was quite tall and had red hair, the same color as a rose. The man seemed to learn how to do things quite quickly for someone who seemed to have been born recently. He decided to name the man Pierre d’laRose. Pierre was a fairly common French name, and D’laRose meant “from the rose”, quite appropriate from where he seemed to have been born out of. They spent quite a few years together, but fate had other plans.

The French Revolution had reached its peak, and the heads of the bourgeoisie must roll! While loved by many it was time for his death. While many were dragged to their deaths at the guillotine, Roy had accepted his fate years ago, back when the revolution started, he walked calmly and with purpose to la demi-lune. Many had attended his beheading, not in the traditional sense to be joyful at his death, but to solemnly mourn what was going to happen. Very few were allowed to speak much before their death, and even of those Roy’s words were different. “I stand here today to face the cards fate has dealt for me my friends! While today you may mourn the loss of a friend, a composer, a fellow Frenchman that while has not lived through your struggles understands your rage and why you must do this please do not mourn for long! I know that victory will soon be at your door, and that France will become the country you want it to be! One where everyone has the chance to live as freely as they desire and were the upper class doesn’t oppress the rest! If I have to sacrifice my life for the good of the country I gladly accept my fate! Au revoir mes amis, ma musique peuvent remplir vos cœurs jusqu'à la fin des temps.
Not long after his death he ended up where many spirits do, Rukongai. It was so alien to him. He remembered his entire life, here it was very different from what life was in France, regardless of what class he was there. Even here he was fairly well off being in a Fifth district. He was fairly well known for being calm and fair. People always felt at ease when he was around, many of the more elderly residents claiming that his soul was as pure as freshly fallen snow.

While he did have a calming aura due to his personality, his spiritual aura was slightly more dangerous. He had so much energy within his own soul that his spirit pressure did cause issues for those that were too close to Zen. This caused him to live more or less alone. While he did have friends, they needed to keep their distance physically or else they might get hurt. For someone that remembered being alive trying to grasp the concept of controlling this energy was foreign to him. It wasn’t uncommon for people around him to become stunned or feel pain when he wasn’t paying close attention to it. This obviously drew some complaints to those that did not know he had this issue, and on several occasions the authorities were called. While it wouldn’t have taken too long for his power to have been brought to the attention of Shinigami, scared residents running away when they see him and some getting hurt just expedited the process.

Being told that he should apply to the Shino Academy several times during these, he thought it would be worth at least a try. He didn’t know what to expect for the entrance exam, he didn’t know much beyond controlling his own reiatsu to a limited degree, if they asked for anything else he would likely fail. The test was not difficult at all. It just consisted of proving he had an appropriate level of reiatsu and that he could control it. He passed with fairly high marks. While he did have quite a high level of reiatsu; so much that once he let go of his concentration, he stunned some of the Shinigami administering the test. He apologized to no end for this, he didn’t mean to do it, but it was alright, they told him that the fact that he could hold back some of that energy being dead for only a few years was quite amazing. He held a lot of potential inside of his body, and that being in the academy would greatly improve his abilities.

He had a very strong connection with his Zanpakutō spirit. He could go into the inner world and spend time with it, but the spirit never said a word. It’s not like he wasn’t able to. He could communicate with Zen, he just wasn’t talking to him. Their relationship was similar to a teacher and student. His spirit taught him how to do things without speaking, using gestures and music to communicate with Zen. It took a while to understand it, but Zen got it. It still frustrated that it wouldn’t speak back! He wanted to understand why he coudlnt control his sword, but every time he asked his spirit just motioned to Zen “It’s a secret” or “Soon” but that didn’t mean anything to Zen, it wasn’t an answer. This frustrated him to no end. He needed to go out and get some fresh air sometimes.

Often he went out to the calm forests to try and get his sword strikes in order. One day he came across a beautiful lake. The waters were calm and reflected light almost as if it was a mirror on the ground. What he found even more interesting is that sounds that happened around it were amplified and there was minimal interference. It was as if the lake was a giant amplifier. He was so interested in it that he decided to go to the center of the lake and try it out himself, essentially forgetting that he was here to practice. He had no instruments to test out the lake with, but every musician knows they always have an instrument on them, their voices. While not the best singer Zen wasn’t horrible. He closed his eyes and started to sing.

What he heard was amazing. The surrounding area filled with his voice. It resonated and reflected inside the lake, amplifying it and filling miles around with his voice. This place was perfect. He felt so serene. Suddenly he felt his own reishi spike. In front of him stood a man wearing a pure white suit with a red tie. Zen instantly knew who this was. It was the spirit of his Zanpakutō. They had met before in his inner world, but the man never spoke. At the time it was mildly understandable, but as it kept going on it was frustrating. Finally, the man spoke “It seems you found your own voice.” The spirit said. Zen was confused about it, find his own voice, what did that mean. “You came here to train your sword skills. But you left that behind and found something you were good at. Something we are both good at.” Zen felt the need to pull out his Zanpakutō and hold it in front of his spirit. They both held it, and Zen finally learned his Zanpakutō’s name. He nodded at Aurora and said “Command! Aurora!”

The area was filled with a brilliant blue light, his spirit pressure pushing the water away from where he was standing. In his hands, instead of a sword, was a medium length conductor’s baton. It was simple. Dark blue with some silver bands along the bottom, middle and tip. He was surprised at what he was holding. Now it made sense why he was so bad at Zanjutsu! He wasn’t going to need it! Though his spike in pressure did set of some alarms, so he was surrounded by 4 Shinigami who promptly took him back to the Academy.
After a few days his Zanpakutō hadn’t changed back to its sword form. This meant it was one of the few constant release zones. This usually meant that the owner had great spiritual power, but at the same time it could also mean that they couldn’t control it, shown by the inability to revert it back to a lower power state. Regardless of that fact, he still released his Shikai, putting him far ahead of what other students could do.

Zen as stationed in squad 13, having graduated from the academy fairly soon after unlocking his shikai. He was stationed in different locations of the human world, rotating between cities that were having hollow problems, as with his shikai he could quickly dispatch of any low level problems. Though he did find it strange that no matter where he went there were a significantly higher quantity of hollows, and they were getting stronger. He also noticed that Shinigami stationed in the human world were also going missing as of late, which was even stranger. Those in the squad were strong enough to take care of the regular hollows that came to Earth and there were not reports of anything too strong, so them dying in combat would be highly unlikely. He wanted to ask his captain about this but he was always out on missions and could not be reached via other means of communication.

One day the captain asked several members, to go meet him out in a cave, which was a fair distance from the Seretei and populated areas of the Rukongai. The closer they got to the cave Zen felt the presence of hollows. A large number of them, but he couldn’t pinpoint any of them. It got stronger and stronger as they went into the cave, where they saw the captain standing infront of an open Garganta.

Everyone was surprised at the sight, but before any of them hollows jumped out of the portal and took them by surprise. That had all been attacked by one, with the exception of Zen, who blasted one with sound, causing it to disintegrate in the air. The rest of the group was dead, the hollows eating their bodies, consuming their energy. The captain had a sullen look on his face, saying to Zen that he broke orders by not feeding the hollows. Failing to follow the direct commands of a captain is insubordination and he had to be punished for it. The hollows that had come from the Garganta ran over to the captain as they began to melt and the dark energy they released covered the captain’s body. An insane laugh filled the cave as the captains body was distorted and mutated. He no longer was a Shinigami. Before Zen stood a giant hollow. Its giant bony mask like face staring down at him, its mouth dripping with hunger. Zen’s instinctive nature was to flash step away, if he had to fight it was not going to be inside of this cave.

The moment Zen was outside he took out his Zanpakutō and sent out a sonic message to the Seretei, asking for assistance as he had encountered a very strong hollow. It was going to take time for help to arrive, he had to fight it alone for the moment. He did recognize the area he was in, the lake with good acoustics was near here. The hollow followed him, firing cero and bala as he did, but zen was fast enough to doge out of the way as he made it to the lake he was looking for. One he got to the lake the former captain talked to him in a voice filled with madness. He asked Zen what he thought he was going to do, he wasn’t strong enough to win. He offered him a choice. He could join him as a hollow, or die due to his insubordination, he was still his captain, he had to follow orders, and Zen had to follow orders.

Zen was indeed conflicted about having to follow orders, but he was not obligated to follow someone’s specific orders. A buzzing sound filled the air, it was the sound of static noise. Zen’s reiatsu started to show, it was sky blue, and looked like the visual representation of the noise, static. The color started to change though. The blue was starting to darken, turning redder and redder, until it was a brilliant crimson color. The static noise was amplified by the lake bellow, now it could be heard for miles around, and the hollow grabbed its head as the volume was unbearable and pain inducing. Zen chuckled as he opened his eyes slightly, his irises the same crimson color as his aura. He told the captain that he wasn’t going to follow his orders. He no longer was his captain, and that Zen was the one that was going to dictate what was going to happen from now on between them.

Zen heard Tenmei’s voice telling him to call out his real name. It was the time to unleash his real power and bring order to those that dare defy him, those that would dictate their own laws and orders above his own. Zen smirked as he whispered “Bankai.” At that moment the static ended as the crimson energy covered Zen’s body. His spiritual pressure went over the roof, this was at the same time that members from squad 11 reached the area, they stopped right at the clearing as they were stricken with fear. The hollow was also stricken with fear as that is what Zen’s pressure commanded. Zen didn’t look any different, but his Zanpakutō was now heavily ornate.

Zen flash stepped directly in front of the hollow and released a flurry of blows at him. Zen was not skilled in zanjutsu, but he was exceptionally good at hakuda. He tore into the hollows body, blood spraying all over his body, his hands covered in it. He gave an upper cut sending the hollow flying into the sky. As he did his Zanpakutō was covered in his red reiatsu, it solidified into a short, but sharp, blade. He quickly reached the hollow and started to tear into him again, this time his hakuda translating into his short sword, slashing and goring the hollow. Its body parts falling down onto the lake, staining it red with its blood. At the end of this assault there was nothing left of the hollow except its head. It fell to the ground. Zen landed next to it as he glared down at it and pointed his Zanpakutō at it. He said to it “Insubordination” before blasting it with sound, causing the mask to shatter.

The squad around him had seen the entire battle, if one could call it that. The captain of the 11th squad was also present and approached Zen. He took Zen to the captain commander and explained what he had seen Zen do. At this point Zen had calmed down, his eyes no longer red, his aura calm. The captain commander asked to be left alone with Zen. He asked him to explain wat had happened, and Zen explained everything that he had seen. The murder of his squad members and the hollowfication of the captain. The commander looked at Zen and asked him to never reveal the hollowfication incident to anyone. Zen agreed to that order. After the meeting he was placed as the Captain of the squad 13, as there were few members left and he was deemed the most capable of doing the job.

His stay as captain wasn’t long, only lasting a few years. It’s not that he didn’t like the job, but he just didn’t want to continue in his position. He wanted to relax and live a normal life. Though he still wanted to keep the world safe. He went to the commander and asked if he could go live in the human world. He explained how he felt and that he was still willing to help the Gotei when needed. This came as a surprise as no one had asked for this type of request before. At first the commander was reluctant to allow him to live in the human world, but a deal was struck, he would live in the human world for one normal human lifetime, and return to the seretei for 50 years, to ensure that his identity would not be revealed to humans.

While in the human world one day he found something interesting. In the dusk hours he saw something glowing in an alley way. He took a look inside to find a large crystal rosebud that radiated a large amount of spirit energy. He got closer to see that someone, or something was inside of it. It seemed to be a small man, but upon closer inspection it was an arrancar. An arrancar in the city? Sleeping? That was odd. Though he did get a sense of familiarity. It had been so long. He got close and used his own spirit pressure to melt away the crystal structure. As it melted the man inside woke up. His first instinct was to cower in the spot he was in. After a few moment the man started to cry and ran up and hugged Zen. The arrancar cried into him and said he was happy that Zen-san had found him. That’s a name he hadn’t heard in a long time. Few people had ever called him that. Zen looked down and tiled the Arrancar face to look at him. Past the tears and the pieces of broken mask, the face was familiar. He recognized him, it was Viz. Viz used to be a Shinigami, but had decided to side with Aizen many years ago. Viz told his story, to how Aizen had taken advantage and turned him into an Arrancar, how he escaped and waited there for someone to find him.

Zen didn’t know what to do. Viz was an arrancar, but he didn’t seem like he was evil. He was scared and just wanted to be safe. With a sigh he decided to help Viz by letting live him in his house. Slowly word did get out that Viz was there, and that he was an arrancar. At first it was quite troublesome as people were assholes and didn’t understand, but as time went on Zen helped Viz and others understand the situation, so that Viz could be safe.

Centuries passed in the human world and as humans became more spiritually aware and events passed Zen did not need to hide any longer. He did not need to fake his identity and split his time between the human world and the gotei. He now had the life that he wanted, to live in the human world and still work for the seretei, his own rules. Eventually the Gotei restructured itself, and as such they were looking for people who were capable enough to become captains of now much larger branches of the organization.

I. Sealed Powers


» Zanpakutô Name: Tenmei

» Zanpakutô Spirit Appearance: Tenmei is a man dressed in a completely white suit with a red tie. He stands at a height similar to Zen’s with short brown hair and red eyes. For the first few meetings he was completely silent. When Zen awakened his Shikai he heard Tenmei’s voice, which was deep and commanding.

Tenmei is also known for manifesting himself more often than other Zanpakutō spirits (more detail in the Shikai section).

» Inner World: Their inner worlds is an empty gold stage surrounded by darkness. A spotlight shines on them when they are in it.

» Zanpakutô Appearance: Currently none. It is a constant release Zanpakutō, it lost its sword form when Zen first released it. (Current apperence in Shikai section)

» Sealed Zanpakutô Power: None as it is a constant release type Zanpakuto.

I. Shikai


» Shikai Release Phrase: Command! Aurora! (Meijiru! Tenmei!)

» Shikai Appearance: After saying his release phrase his sword completely disappears and the hilt of his sword transforms into a conductors baton. The baton is a deep blue color, almost black. It measures 15 inches in length

» Shikai Abilities:

Manifestation: Tenmei can willingly manifest himself outside of the inner world. While all Zanpakutō spirits have this ability, he does it relatively frequently in comparison. He often comes out when he pleases, depending on the situation. Sometimes he just wants to be outside, sometimes he wants to keep Zen company, sometimes he wants to chime in on a conversation in an external manner, and in dire situations when Zen can’t act for himself.

When in battle Tenmei has the same abilities detailed in this and the Bankai section, and always acts as if he was in Bankai, regardless of whether if Zen has activated it in battle or not. Tenmei will only be in battles if Zen has gotten to a state where he cannot fight but is not unconscious. An example of it would be when Zen was in a fight with Hisao, and he could not move without having dealing damage to himself, essentially being paralyzed, but in that case, Zen asked for the help, before it was provided.
Tenmei can only provide assistance ONCE per thread. The duration of this cannot exceed 5 posts, but if he sustains a large amount of damage, or if he willingly returns to the Zanpakutō, he cannot participate in the battle again. This also counts if he is outside of the Zanpakutō before a battle starts in a thread.

While Tenmei is outside, Zen’s Zanpakutō abilities’ power are cut by 3/4 and he cannot access Bankai. The only exception to this is the Arpeggio ability. The cost of merged kido goes up 4x.

Order: Zen’s Zanpakutō focuses on maintaining order, and more importantly the order Zen wants others to follow. This has manifested itself in the way of music, no matter how disorganized a piece of music sounds there are underlying rules that allow the music to be played. He uses some of those rules as his abilities to maintain order as the conductor of the battle field.
Sound Manipulation: Zen can create sounds around him and fights with sound. The manipulation can work in various ways. He can create normal sounds within the area that his Illuminacion affects, that is these sounds don’t have any effect that normal sound wouldn’t have. They can range from a pin dropping to that of an entire orchestra playing. In a similar way he can manipulate already existing sounds. For example, he could make someone voice sound different after their words leave their mouth, even going as far as making their words make no sound at all. Creating and manipulating sounds in this way does not require much, if any energy on his part.

One step above is taking sounds and making them dangerous in a non “supernatural” way This means he can take sounds and make them dangerous based on their normal properties, such as volume, frequency, direction, speed, and pressure. By affecting volume, he can take even the quiet drop of a pin and turn it into an ear-splitting sound. Changing its frequency Zen can turn a dangerous high-volume sound into something that is inaudible, thus causing the effects of his non-visible sounds to seem to come from nowhere. This means that he can create infra and ultrasound. While infrasound is relatively harmless, the ultrasonic vibrations can be used to create vicious vibrations that can make even the sturdiest materials crumble, though it might take some time if it was made by a very good crafter (This is further explained in Timbre). An effect that this ultrasound can do is cavitation, which is voids that quickly pressurize causing extreme pressure and heat, resulting in a shockwave. This does not happen unless he uses ultrasound for a long period of time, and it can occur randomly. When changing direction Zen can move the sound in his area of influence, changing its trajectory. When this happens the sound forms into a semi visible stream, as the forced air distorts and bends light slightly. Changing the speed that which the sound travels, by itself doesn’t do much besides slowing down or speeding up the sound wave, but when combined with pressure is when things get different. When Zen changes the pressure at which the sound travels this increases the force that it has, essentially making sound a powerful force. When changing the pressure and speed of sound Zen can create wind, ranging from a gentle breeze to powerful gales. While not too complicated or taxing, using these abilities, such as creating a sustained gale, can slowly drain his energy.

Things start to get more draining when Zen creates his own waves to fight with. While he can control waves inside of his Illuminacion, when it comes to creating his own attack sounds he is limited to an area of 100 feet around his body. The waves can be pointed in any direction, but they are limited to 4 types: sphere, line, cone, and blade. They each have their own properties. Sphere creates an orb of sound around Zen. This orb can range in size from 10 feet in diameter, to 100 feet. A line burst can reach up to 250 feet away but can only be up to 10 feet wide. A cone can travel 100 feet and progressive gets larger as it travels, reaching a maximum of 50 feet wide. Blades are compressed waves of sound that Zen can control throughout his Illuminacion. Cone and sphere waves become weaker the more that they travel, only being 1/4 of their original strength when at their maximum reach. Line waves don’t lose their strength, but they can only be fired in one direction, and after being fired Zen cannot change its direction. Blades do not lose their strength, but Zen must concentrate on controlling them to keep moving them.

He does not need to be entirely focused to use this ability, but the more complex actions he takes the less he can concentrate on abilities that require concentration, such as Arpeggio.

Tempo Strike: With his sword gone Zen has focused on Hakuda, but that doesn’t mean that he can’t use his Zanpakutō as a dagger. By covering it in air and spirit energy he creates a very sharp blade. He basis his skill with this weapon off his Hakuda skill instead of Zanjutsu.

Iluminacion: This ability spreads out 500 feet around Zen. He can create touchable, semi-solid illusions. They are mostly used for Zen’s performances, but it can be used in battle to disorient opponents. An example would be him creating a wall, that feels like a wall, but when you apply any sort of extra pressure one would go through it.

This ability is mainly passive. The sphere of influence does not carry any constraints to maintain as, in essence, is just an area of effect. He can maintain only one or two illusions at a time. The size of one illusion cannot surpass 100 feet, total. That is he could make a 50 foot, by 50 foot wall (this has an area greater than 100 feet, but in this case what matter is distance over substance). He can combine illusions to make a larger one, but there will be a small, visible, gap between them. When someone, or something passes through and breaks the illusion it cannot be used for 2 posts. If they break just one Zen would only be able to use one illusion. An illusion cannot be changed during the same post, if Zen wishes to change it, he has to wait until he is in a new post to do so.

Illusions do not have to be singular objects. He could create hundreds or thousands of a single object if it is small enough. He could create 100 6 by 6 inch butterflies and have them fly around the area of effect.

Bianca: Condenses reiatsu in front of Zen to create a white shield in front of him that absorbs the next attack so that it deals only half of its damage. If Zen is much stronger than his opponent, it can negate the attack.

The shield is composed of standing wave. This wave arises when he opposes the resonance of his own spirit pressure with a sound wave. The wave is completely stationary, creating a strong, stable shield. When compared to Bakudo this would be in the range of #30. An attack that surpasses that level of strength passes through the barrier at half strength. If the attack surpasses #60 it bypasses the shield completely.

This ability can only be used every 4 posts. While it does not consume much internal energy, it does decrease his spirit pressure. After 4 posts his spirit pressure returns to his usual level.

Bemol: Zen fires a small orb of concentrated spirit energy that, if it hits its intended target they are shrouded by Zen’s spirit pressure. Due to this strong oppressive force it has similar effects to being in very close proximity to Zen. While its main purpose is to decrease the power of Kido by 5 numbers (thus turning a #20 to a #15, an essentially making anything less than #5 not work), it can cause effects such as fear, paralysis, stunning and pain. Since he still controls this pressure, he can attempt to make opponents feel these effects at will. The effects of this attack are dependent on the spirit pressure of the opponent. If they have a pressure greater than Zen’s the effects are much weaker, if it even works at all. If it works, it lasts for 2 posts. A target affected by this has a “b” hovering over their head.

This takes 5% of his internal energy to use. While it may not be a lot, due to his large internal reservoir, to some this amount of energy could be overwhelming. He can use this ability 2 posts after the effect ends, or 2 posts if he misses.

Sharp: Similar to Bemol, but it works in the opposite manner. In this case the energy that he sends out adds to the target’s own energy pool, strengthening their kido by 5, and increasing their spirit pressure for 2 posts. Other than that, it works the same as Bemol. A target affected by this has “#” over their head. He cannot use it on himself.

Staccato: Zen forms small orbs of spirit energy and sound at the tip of his baton and fires them in rapid succession. The rate of fire is 300 RPS (18,000 RPM) but the orbs do almost negligible damage on their own, but they have decent knockback if the target is hit constantly by them. This ability does not take much concentration to hold for a long period of time, for a maximum of 2 posts. He can use other abilities while he maintains this ability going. After he uses this continuously it has a cool down period of 1 post.

Tenuto: Zen creates slow moving bars of sound energy that home in on a target. While slow when they come into contact they create a deafening boom that causes moderate amounts of damage. If they do not hit something after 2 posts they will explode wherever they are.



Timbre: This gives Zen an acute sense of hearing, which allows him to be able to hear things from miles away, if he focuses on it. With even greater focus he could identify the resonance of objects.

An objects resonance depends on the material it is made from. When an object is exposed to a wave that has the same resonance it begins to sake violently and eventually break, shatter, or fall apart. The simplest example of this is when an opera singer hits the right pitch and shatters a glass. Objects of poor quality break much easier than those of higher quality. The better quality the object is the longer it takes for it to break, in some cases it could even be impossible to break them. Objects do not need to be exposed continuously to the sound wave to break, as each time they are exposed they take some damage. When the object breaks is subjective to its quality. An example would be that it would take less than one post for Zen to shatter a tree, a low-quality sword would take about the same time, while a Zanpakutō could take from 10 to 30 posts of constant exposure to break. Bankai cannot be broken using this ability.
Arpeggio: It allows Zen to use more than one Kido at the same time often causing them to combine into a kido that has the properties of the two or three kido used at the time. The incantation of the kido is spliced together to make a new incantation. Splicing kidos in this way require twice, or three times as long for it to be cast, leaving him open while he casts it. This also averages their level. If he wanted to combine #1 with #50, the resulting kido would be equal in strength to #25.

When combining them he cannot combine kido outside of their own class, he cannot combine Hadō with bakudo, though he can combine bakudo with healing kido if they have an area effect. He can attempt to combine kido that oppose each other, such as fire and water, but this has a high chance of failure. If he can combine them the kido created creates something new, such as mixing fire and water kido to make steam kido. Doing this takes concentration, the more kido he tries to combine, the more focus he has to have. He has been able to combine as much as 4 kido at one time. Combining Hadō is more complicated due to their more unpredictable nature. Bakudo are easier to combine as they are very structured and orderly.

Using this ability to splice two kido comes at an extra cost. When splicing 3 kido the number increases by 5 in cost, when splicing 4 it takes 10 more. When putting the kido together the energy goes up respectively depending of the average that is created. The energy needed to create the kido is 2x, 3x, or 4x the average cost. If he were to merge Hadō #10 and #20 it would cost 2x what #15 would be, but the strength would be equivalent to #15. If he were to combine #30, #40, #10, and #20 it would have the average power of #25, to that you add 10, so it becomes a #35, and then it becomes 35x4= 140. As the last example shows, the more kido are used the more diminishing returns you get, due to having a very high cost, but if the kido used include very low numbers the resulting kido would be fairly weak compared to the energy put into it.


Fermata: Using a combination of reiatsu and sound Zen creates a loud blast around him. Most projectiles that are in within 5 feet of Zen stop moving for 1 post. This effect follows him. If he moves from the position the projectiles will move once more, and any projectile he tries to send out are also stopped, meaning he cannot use projectile attacks for one post.
This blast actually indicates that he has essentially frozen his spirit pressure closest to his body. This ability locks him into place for the post, not being able to move via conventional means. The only way for him to exit this area is to flash step out of it, but doing so could cause him to take some damage from the projectiles. It has a cooldown of 1 post.

This ability is based off his Kido skill level. Those above his level, or its equivalent for other races, have no trouble bypassing this barrier.


I. Bankai


» Bankai Release Phrase: Obey! Shining Aurora!

» Bankai Appearance: Regardless of what he was wearing before his outfit changes into a white suit with a red tie, much like what Tenmei wears. His conducturs baton turns a deep red and his aura color changes to red.

» Bankai Abilities:

Concerto: Zen can now use his sound attacks from an origin point that is not him. He can create attacks that originate from an area within his Illuminacion range (500 feet). They still travel in the same shapes, but those that have a cone or line shape can be positioned at different angles.

Sound Cannon: Zen can capture non-physical attacks and fire them back. He does this by creating a circular wall of reiatsu and compressed air in front of him. This stops the attack and then Zen can release it forward. He can do this to absorb several attacks, but it has some drawbacks. While he does this he becomes immobile, as he has to lock himself in place to absorb he knockback from attacks as they suddenly stop. While there is no limit on how many attacks he can stop, the more attacks that he stops increase the load, eventually attacks can overload his ability to stop them, causing them to release their energy wildly around the area, hurting Zen and firing the energy randomly.

Crescendo: A cone shaped blast of reiatsu that empowers kido, and other reiatsu based attacks that travel in this area. This area is a 50 foot cone. Any spirit based attack that enters it is empowered by 1/3.

Diminuendo: Works in a similar way to Crescendo. This time he uses his spirit pressure to degrade kido that are targeting him. It travels in a cone shaped wave that reached out to 50 feet. Due to this shift in pressure, while this ability is used his back is exposed to attacks as his defenses are focused on his front. Strength of those attacks is reduced by 1/2.

This only affects attacks that are below his own Kido skill. Those at and above his skill are affected minimally, but are still affected by it to a small degree.
Simile: Zen can attempt to copy kido used by others to negate them. This mainly works for kido that he has already learned, that is he cannot cancel a kido that he hasn’t seen before. If he wants to cancel it, he must take some time to learn a bit about it. If he sees a new kido it takes 3 posts to be able to copy it, and 6 posts to be able to cancel it. This only works for kido that are open to everyone. It does not work for kido made specifically, or only known by one or a few select characters.


Marcato: V shaped projectiles composed of reiatsu and sound fly out and travel at a high speed and on contact creates 10 foot wide explosions. This is similar to Staccato. Its fire rate is much slower at 10RPS (60 RPM). The projectiles hae the strength of bullets, but their 10 foot explosions do not cause much damage, they essentially just create large knockback.

Silencio: Sound based attacks have a reduced effect on Zen. The strength of these attacks is reduced by 1/3.

Fortissimo: If Zen makes an attacks and yells fortissimo the effectiveness of the attack raises by 2x. This makes him give out a burst of energy, leaving him tired for 1 post after using this ability. Doing this makes the Kido cost 2.5x its original cost.

» Name: Akiko Sayuri
» Titles: Raven
» Appearance Age: 20
» True Age: 100
» Gender: Female
Affiliation/Rank: Vizard Corps

» Appearance Description: Standing at 5'4 Akiko is a rather slender and fit woman with firey orange hair and light hazel eyes. Her hair goes just past her neck and partially covers her right eye. Akiko's body is in an hourglass shape with fitting curves and she has no intention of flaunting them. She has a scar visible where her heart is but it isn't very noticeable unless up close. Akiko seems to have fair skin and her skin is soft to the touch. She has no tatoos or any sort of birth marks on her body.

She's said to have a really nice smile and stance that's sometimes lady like and sometimes very agile. With what might be considered an above average sized bust and what's considered to be a bubble butt. Her clothing is usually the average shinigami uniform and she tries to hide all of these features under them. Her preference of off duty clothing is usually a plain shirt and jeans but she has sometimes been seen in a skirt or dress. She doesn't wear any sort of formal attire, why would she ever need such clothing?

» Personality: Akiko is often considered lazy and ignorant as she tends to sleep in most days and just day dream a lot while she's awake and not in combat. She's actually very active and enjoys training with her fellow soldiers. Akiko's nice to everyone, even people she dislikes because she wishes to get along with everyone over getting a fight over something petty. She's always willing to listen to people but after a long day of fighting or training she tends to just want to sleep. Akiko's attitude towards being a vizard are rather mixed as she feels glad to have more power and in a way, her brother back but on the other hand she doesn't know if she'll ever be able to somehow free Ryuuta from his hollow form and give him another chance at life as a plus soul.

She isn't really willing to express her feelings but she's willing to hear others out if they need someone to talk to. Akiko has very little experience with being in any sort of intimate relationship and thus tries to seem un-interested in such but she is curious but also scared of it. Akiko values friends like family as they are the only family she has besides Ryuuta. She will fight to complete her mission or goals but she knows her limits and she'd rather live over dying like an idiot. She can seem rather cold to those she meets for the first time but she's really just a bit shy around new faces.

[b]» Zanpakutō Name:
Kōkai no reivun (Raven of Regret)

» Zanpakutō Spirit Appearance:
Topics tagged under 40 on Bleach Platinum Hearts RP [Active] BqbGlNCCUAACmOs

» Zanpakutō Spirit Personality: This Zanpakutō spirit seems to be modeled after Akiko's little brother and thus is friendly and cheerful. He can keep calm if need be and can be very intelligent when Akiko needs him to be and often that intelligence isn't wasted. Kokai's view towards violence varies as he may not like certain people enough to say that he won't mind if Akiko attacks them. He despises when Akiko acts cold to people unless he has reason to dislike them as well. Kokai is often very loud with opinions too, he won't hesitate to state his opinion.

Kokai can be stubborn at times as well, he'd wants Akiko to consider his opinions. He can be very restless too, not being one for slowing down in anyway unless he's tired from fighting. Kokai also doesn't like being called stupid and will consider such as a challenge. Often during quiet times he'll challenge Akiko to a dance off and will keep asking until she accepts. Kokai can be immature but that's probably because he just wants to have fun instead of being serious all the time.

» Inner World: Akiko's inner world is rather odd, one one side it seems to be a Sengoku style city with many different buildings and a very nice scene as the roads seem to have a stream next to the roads. These streams all seem to run to the large castle at the far end of the old style city portion of the inner world. The streams all fill the moat around the castle that seems heavily fortified despite always having the gate open. Inside the castle are very nice rooms and at the middle floor of the castle the entire portion of the castle seems to be made from polished marble and has a very European feel to it. It's here the ancient feel of japan is mainly broken as Kokai is found here often dancing to any sort of tune besides anything heavy metal. Speakers are set up in this room and they're always at high volume. Kokai rarely leaves this room and when he does it's usually due to boredom or to train with Akiko. This half of the inner world always appears to be in day light.

The second half is a more modern city with large skyscrapers and rather empty but bright streets as it always seems to be night here. Giant screens litter the sides of every building and they all seem to play Akiko's memories. There are very few small buildings here and the streets all seem to have arrows pointed on them. These arrows point to a very out of place building that looks like a Japanese garden style garden with a tall wooden building in the center. Inside is a stage of sorts that Ryuuta often performs on and then there's a small table where he somehow always manages to have a full cup of coffee waiting on it.

At the center of her inner world is a small plain are that always seems to be at twilight, while very ordinary it has its own beauty to it. The flowers are always in bloom and they aren't too exotic or special. Just nice and simple, this part of Akiko's inner world is probably mean to represent a safe haven for her.

Sealed Zanpakutō Appearance: While sealed the Zanpakutō takes the form of a long double barreled pistol. On the pistol seems to be an engraving of a flying raven with a trail of feathers behind it.

» Release Phrase: Carry my wish on your wings, Kōkai no reivun

» Shikai Appearance: In shikai Akiko's Zanpakutō splits into 8 seprate guns, 2 of which she caries with her and fires manually while the other 6 are controlled with her mind and usually float around or near her.

» Shikai Abilities: In Shikai Akiko's gun splits into 8 each one of them capable of firing on their own via mental command from Akiko or Kokai and on rare occasions Ryuuta as well (only cero in his case). Her Kidou power is boosted to the point she casts them at 1 tier higher (eg casting at tier 3-4 has the kido count as if akiko was tier 3-3). Regular ammunition can also be replaced with Kido rounds which take one post to create. She can make upto 4 kido rounds and the number decreases the higher the kido number (eg: 1-25 can be made into 4 bullets, 26-50 into 3, 51-75 into 2 and 76-99 into one). Forbidden kido create their own ammo and only one round can be made per post to a maximum of 4 total. Her kido is fired from her guns and only the ones she's holding can fire kido while the others can only fire normal ammo.

Kokai also offers improved reflexes as she can react as soon as she sees movement or any sort of change such as someone suddenly throwing a punch when her guards down, she could react to said punch unless they are faster than her. Along with that Akiko's shikai also offers control of the air around to begin to hover and move more freely, jump higher and even create a weak shield of wind. The barrier itself can only with stand a hit from someone her strength or lower, any higher and it will break through. Hovering also grants her more effective dodging capabilities as she can move more suddenly. Her high jump can be used in two ways, a series of smaller jumps which allow great mobility or a greater jump which must be charged and can result in Akiko being able jump a kilometer into the air. She can use her wind hovering ability to slow her descent or even speed it up if she wishes.

Nova Shot:
If Akiko manages to load all 8 guns with a kido round each she can use the energy from her kido rounds to create a Nova Shot which channels all 8 rounds to create a very small sun which she fires at her tragets causing it to explode into 50 meter radius explosion. The Nova shot has the strength of a #40 Hadō.[/spoiler]

» Inner Hollow Description:
Topics tagged under 40 on Bleach Platinum Hearts RP [Active] F1

» Inner Hollow Personality: Akiko's inner hollow is rather hyper like her Zanpakutō spirit, it does however differ by being rather casual he it is about it's preference for violence over diplomacy. Seeing as this Hollow was originally her little brother both it and the Zanpakutō spirit seem to get along but while they do seem similar they are rather different. The inner hollow known as Ryuuta has been known to try and tempt Akiko into avenging his death by making her peruse the shinigami that are responsible for his death in the first place. He can be calmed rather easily by music and wants Akiko to dance with him but usually out dances her anyway.

Ryuuta is friendly but also very pessimistic when it comes to people that are stronger than Akiko. While not one to take over Akiko's body he has been known to try and do so if he feels somethings not right and the urge to fight becomes too strong to deal with. He also tries to push Akiko into becoming stronger with cero and while he means well he also tries to have her push everyone else to master cero as well. He can't stand heavy metal music and will try to drown it out with his own music which is usually hip hop or something less intense. Like Akiko, Ryuuta is addicted to coffee and misses the sweet aroma and taste enough to somehow always have some with him at all times whenever Akiko trains in her inner world.

» Inner Hollow Powers: The inner hollow posses powers rather typical for am agile gunslinger by having heightened senses and being able to react quickly. Wielding a large gun of his own he can use it one handed or even as a rifle that fires high powered cero beams. Ryuuta is also capable of small bursts of teleportation, this can even be used on others but seeing as Ryuuta can't exit Akiko's inner world he doesn't use this ability.

The hollows aim and prediction is also rather scary as it has managed to make bullets rebound and destroy entire buildings in Akiko's inner world with a single low level shot.

» Hollow Mask Appearance:

» Vizard Powers: Upon putting on her mask, Akiko is granted greater speed and higher Cero power. Her Cero Power is considered 3 tiers higher when wearing her mask (eg: Cero cast at Tier 3-4 are considered tier 3-1) and cause some of the energy to remain behind for 4 posts. This energy can be used to track people or even be used as a magnet for her other Cero attacks. Her cero can also be channeled through her Zanpakutō to create a Cero round that travels faster and is also an additional tier higher when fired, Akiko can create up to 4 Cero rounds per post however she can only use one round on the post that the bullets are created(eg: Create 4 cero rounds in one post, may only use one of those rounds on that post).

She also gains Ryuuta's Teleportation abilities to some extent by being able to teleport up to 250 meters away from her current position but can only teleport twice per post and must be able to see where she's going. She can also teleport others for half the distance and she still needs to see where they are going, someone can resist this by releasing a burst of reiatsu stronger than her. Teleporting drains her energy quickly and she must use it sparingly or else grow tired quickly.

The mask's speed boost increases her maximum speed by 300 km/h and heightens her senses such as sight, hearing, smell and touch. She's able to spot things quicker and from further away, pick up the scent of a target and even hear from a larger radius and higher as well as lower pitched noises. The also helps with her aiming and allows her to think quicker allowing her to find the best counter to attacks quicker.

Full Moon Beam: When all 8 guns have cero rounds in them she can use Full moon beam which is similar to the nova shot but instead made of cero and appears to be a moon while charging, when fired it fires a large beam that will shoot through anything in the way. Those caught in the beam are capable or resisting it and the beam has a range of a kilometer if charged for one post or 500 meters if fired on the post she begins charging.

Twilight Blaze: By using 4 rounds of each type (not including forbidden) Akiko is able to use Twilight Blaze which merges cero and kido energies into an orb that when fired expands and upon impact causes a large explosion that can take out a city block. Akiko needs to charge this attack for 3 posts (being able to fire on the third post). If she needs to fire earlier she may but the result is a beam of cero and kido energy that explodes upon impact, the range of this beam is 250 meters and is as strong as Nova shot and full moon beam.

» Background: Akiko was the oldest child in her family, she was often considered the gifted one while her brother Ryuuta often watched from the side. Ryuuta wanted to be a dancer and Akiko supported him but that support wouldn't really last as Akiko was picked to join a more prestigious school in japan. As the years went by Akiko had to balance her school work and seeing her family when they came to visit, she hated having to put school first but she wanted to make her family proud. The girl soon grew rather cold as studies became her focus until she graduated and moved back home.

Ryuuta had become a rather rebellious boy because while he wasn't as smart as his sister he was still pretty intelligent as well but wanted to follow his own dreams. He took up a side job as a street dancer to earn money where he could and he was good at it too. When Akiko moved back he tried to get her to dance with him to try and make her smile but she pushed him away and told him it was time to grow up. This upset Ryuuta and he ran from his sister and wandered the city just wanting to get away from everything but Akiko followed and the two argued and they ended up at the train station. The two continued to fight and in heart broken rage to see his sister become so cold, Ryuuta slapped Akiko causing her to call onto the tracks, she her legs from the fall and realizing what he had done made him panic.

As he jumped down onto the tracks he noticed a train was speeding right for them, he tried to get his sister to safety but he wasn't strong enough to lift her. He begged for those watching to help him but Akiko tried to get Ryuuta to just leave her. The last thing Akiko wanted was to see her brother die because of her, as her brother proved to be stubborn and kept trying to help her they both soon realized that it was too late now. Instead of getting to safety Ryuuta held his sister beginning to tear up whispering his apologies that he couldn't save her. Akiko held her little brother tightly crying as the train grew closer and the next thing they knew it was just...blank. The two awoke around midnight, a shinigami standing over them. The middle aged looking man said that they had died and that now they were to move on. They didn't really hesitate to agree that they were to move on, it felt like a dream to them but in the end they were now in the Rukongai, both of them forgetting everything except their final living moments.

While confused the two started again and tried to get money however they could. Akiko ended up stooping rather low as she sold herself often to try and earn money while Ryuuta tried to find a job and if he failed he'd try dancing to maybe see if he could get anything. Akiko often cried at night as she felt so ashamed of herself, one day she didn't come home and Ryuuta waited. Akiko was fine...until she raised a gun to a shinigami's head demanding their money. The weapon was old and if it fired it'd probably just break and become worthless. The shinigami tested her a bit with this and then offered that she become a shinigami, Akiko didn't know what to think at this except that it was an opportunity to move above being an occasional whore and earn more money and ensure that Ryuuta could eat well. So she agreed and she returned home to find that the house had been torn apart, Ryuuta no where in sight. Akiko ran around the district trying to find her brother but soon gave up only to see he was being dragged into the forest by a group of shinigami. Akiko ran after them, the shinigami that she encountered earlier stopped her and said it was too dangerous to mess with a group of trouble making shinigami.

The shinigami followed the group and Akiko followed anyway, the two saw that the group was going to kill Ryuuta for being annoying but they heard a hollows roar in the distance. One smirked and suggested to leave the boy for the hollows and they agreed and fled. Before Akiko could get to Ryuuta a hollow had already swooped at the chance for free food and the shinigami had to drag her away as Ryuuta screamed as he was devoured. The image of Ryuuta's dismembered and partially eaten corpse filled her nightmares every night as she became a shinigami and worked to not only kill hollows but one day execute those responsible for her brothers death.

She didn't join a squad and her Zanpakutō seemed to be formed from her guilt of letting Ryuuta die, making a copy of him from the last she saw him. The two got along rather well and as years passed they fought hollows that showed up and soon an odd hollow began to appear and always get away or completely avoid Akiko all together. She continued to train her skills in both gunslinging and Kido only to find herself lacking everywhere else, she began to practice her skills with her Zanpakutō as an average weapon and found that there was no end to her normal ammunition. Her training would continue for a few years only to encounter that hollow over and over again.

Soon the two faced each other, Akiko felt some sort of familiarity as she stared at the hollow that seemed to be an Asian dragon. The two stared at each other for a while longer before they began to fight. To conserve her energy she fired mostly regular ammunition, the dragon moved quickly and showed it's powers with teleportation before Akiko managed to shoot its mask, causing it to break way partially, she froze as she knew who the hollow was now. Ryuuta had become the very thing she had to destroy, she held her gun up and fired without looking. Knowing she missed was the least of her worries, as Ryuuta charged one last Cero something attacked them both. Akiko was knocked out after taking a few hits from the faster opponent and Ryuuta went down rather easily as well.

When she awoke Akiko found herself chained to a wall and several demons gathered around Ryuuta, as he struggled to break free from his chains as the demons chanted and raised a dagger and stabbed Ryuuta with it. All Akiko could do is watch as she saw her brother die a second time. The hollow was absorbed into the dagger leaving the dagger with a black glow. The demons approached Akiko chanting still and stabbed her with the dagger in the heart, she felt something seep into her body, as if being corrupted by it. She blacked out again and awoke back in the Rukongai, she didn't know what happened and decided to just head back to the Gotei. An odd feeling made her stop as she heard Ryuuta speak, calling her before telling her to let him out. The two just seemed to unable to cope with the sudden situation and as Akiko panicked, so did Ryuuta, the hollow mask forming and Akiko trying to stop it from doing so. Ryuuta didn't know what to do and didn't realize he was causing his sister harm. Kokai however knew exactly what to do. He found Ryuuta and told him that he needed to stop and Akiko would be fine.

In the end Akiko managed to pull the mask off but she had to learn to control it so Ryuuta didn't take control and panic. It took a few more years to finally gain that bond between brother and sister again, they agreed to help eachother and one day Ryuuta would be free and able to live as a plus soul again. Akiko joined the Vizard corps as soon as she was confident in her abilities as a vizard and she does what she can to not get killed and master her Vizard powers.

» Kido Spell Name: Galaxy Chorus
» Kido Spell Type: Hadō
» Kido Spell Usage: It can be used by anyone after training.
»Kido Number [Optional]: It has no number, but power wise it is around #60
»Kido Incantation: “Gates to the heaves open wide and marvel us with your song!”

» Kido Spell Effects: As the incantation is started a 50 foot disk of reiatsu, matching the casters reiatsu color, starts forming and slowly rotating. The caster then makes circles with their finger to increase the speed of the spinning disk. The faster it spins the brighter it glows. Once the desired speed is achieved the reiatsu is released and takes the form of small stars, no larger than 1 foot in diameter. While individually they do not cause much damage the danger comes in their sheer numbers. Depending on the Kido ability of the caster it could range from hundreds of stars to thousands, creating a terrible star shower.

Name: Zen, formerly Roy Delacroix
Titles: Master (By Pierre), Snow (By elderly members of Rukongai), Exceptional (By some in the Gotei), Secret Captain
Gender: Male
Appearance Age: 25
Age: Around 650
Affiliation/Rank: Gotei 13

Appearance Description:
Zen stands at 6’0”. He has silver hair that reaches down to his shoulders. He has a fairly lithe build that tends to disguise his true physical strength. Even while in the Seretei he tends to wear a simple white, long sleeved, button down shirt, with semi-formal black pants, and black dress shoes. He often keeps his Zanpakutō in his right pocket for quick access. He has piercing blue eyes and a fairly calm, slightly soft voice. When he is giving orders his voice deepens and becomes commanding. When he gets angry, his eyes iris’ turn from blue, to deep red.

Appearance Picture: (If you have one, link a picture of your character.)

Personality: Zen is one of the calmest people you will find. Very few things, if anything no one has been successful yet, cause him to lose his cool. There is a rumor that when he loses his cool he might become as violent and unpredictable as a Kenpachi.

He enjoys keeping order and following the law to the best of his ability. He seeks to bring arguments to a quick and calm resolution, but he is willing to use force to restore order, starting with non-lethal, and using lethal force only when necessary, something his Zanpakutō allows him to do effectively.

He has enjoyed music since before his death. Spending so much time on Earth since the 1900’s his enjoyment of music has only increased. He can often be found in his music store selling instruments, old music formats, teaching classes, and sometimes preforming concerts for charities.

While he enjoys things to be orderly and lawful, he also enjoys seeing chaos ensue in certain situations. He knows that it is a part of nature, and only steps in to calm the satiation when it is getting out of hand.

Zen has another side to him, one that few see and live to tell the tale. Beneath the calm, relaxed façade hides a monster. While few things get under his skin, those that do, drive him mad. The switch on a much more sadistic side, a more authoritarian side. When he is in this state, though he is not in a blind rage, his attacks are much more forceful, his words commanding, he will do whatever it takes to have his target follow orders. His irises turn a crimson red when he is in this state.

Likes: Most music though he prefers classical. Sweets. Order. Deep down inside he likes to watch chaos unfold as he stays cool, calm and collected.

Dislikes: Metal music. Unregulated chaos.

History:

Zen was born in Paris, France a 24 years before the French Revolution to a wealthy aristocratic family to the name Roy Delacroix. Throughout his early years he had a great affinity towards everything that had to do with music and his parents greatly agreed to further his studies into the musical arts. At the age of 17 he was greatly known throughout Paris as a music prodigy and he became a man that everyone looked up to and many women wanted to marry. His parents arranged many women to date him hoping that he would propose to one but he never did. While he had great interests in them, he never felt the need to carry on the family line.

One day when he was tending to the rose garden in his own home, he discovered a man in the middle of the rosy briars. The man didn’t know how to speak, or do much of anything. He was quite tall and had red hair, the same color as a rose. The man seemed to learn how to do things quite quickly for someone who seemed to have been born recently. He decided to name the man Pierre d’laRose. Pierre was a fairly common French name, and D’laRose meant “from the rose”, quite appropriate from where he seemed to have been born out of. They spent quite a few years together, but fate had other plans.

The French Revolution had reached its peak, and the heads of the bourgeoisie must roll! While loved by many it was time for his death. While many were dragged to their deaths at the guillotine, Roy had accepted his fate years ago, back when the revolution started, he walked calmly and with purpose to la demi-lune. Many had attended his beheading, not in the traditional sense to be joyful at his death, but to solemnly mourn what was going to happen. Very few were allowed to speak much before their death, and even of those Roy’s words were different. “I stand here today to face the cards fate has dealt for me my friends! While today you may mourn the loss of a friend, a composer, a fellow Frenchman that while has not lived through your struggles understands your rage and why you must do this please do not mourn for long! I know that victory will soon be at your door, and that France will become the country you want it to be! One where everyone has the chance to live as freely as they desire and were the upper class doesn’t oppress the rest! If I have to sacrifice my life for the good of the country I gladly accept my fate! Au revoir mes amis, ma musique peuvent remplir vos cœurs jusqu'à la fin des temps.
Not long after his death he ended up where many spirits do, Rukongai. It was so alien to him. He remembered his entire life, here it was very different from what life was in France, regardless of what class he was there. Even here he was fairly well off being in a Fifth district. He was fairly well known for being calm and fair. People always felt at ease when he was around, many of the more elderly residents claiming that his soul was as pure as freshly fallen snow.

While he did have a calming aura due to his personality, his spiritual aura was slightly more dangerous. He had so much energy within his own soul that his spirit pressure did cause issues for those that were too close to Zen. This caused him to live more or less alone. While he did have friends, they needed to keep their distance physically or else they might get hurt. For someone that remembered being alive trying to grasp the concept of controlling this energy was foreign to him. It wasn’t uncommon for people around him to become stunned or feel pain when he wasn’t paying close attention to it. This obviously drew some complaints to those that did not know he had this issue, and on several occasions the authorities were called. While it wouldn’t have taken too long for his power to have been brought to the attention of Shinigami, scared residents running away when they see him and some getting hurt just expedited the process.

Being told that he should apply to the Shino Academy several times during these, he thought it would be worth at least a try. He didn’t know what to expect for the entrance exam, he didn’t know much beyond controlling his own reiatsu to a limited degree, if they asked for anything else he would likely fail. The test was not difficult at all. It just consisted of proving he had an appropriate level of reiatsu and that he could control it. He passed with fairly high marks. While he did have quite a high level of reiatsu; so much that once he let go of his concentration, he stunned some of the Shinigami administering the test. He apologized to no end for this, he didn’t mean to do it, but it was alright, they told him that the fact that he could hold back some of that energy being dead for only a few years was quite amazing. He held a lot of potential inside of his body, and that being in the academy would greatly improve his abilities.

He had a very strong connection with his Zanpakutō spirit. He could go into the inner world and spend time with it, but the spirit never said a word. It’s not like he wasn’t able to. He could communicate with Zen, he just wasn’t talking to him. Their relationship was similar to a teacher and student. His spirit taught him how to do things without speaking, using gestures and music to communicate with Zen. It took a while to understand it, but Zen got it. It still frustrated that it wouldn’t speak back! He wanted to understand why he coudlnt control his sword, but every time he asked his spirit just motioned to Zen “It’s a secret” or “Soon” but that didn’t mean anything to Zen, it wasn’t an answer. This frustrated him to no end. He needed to go out and get some fresh air sometimes.

Often he went out to the calm forests to try and get his sword strikes in order. One day he came across a beautiful lake. The waters were calm and reflected light almost as if it was a mirror on the ground. What he found even more interesting is that sounds that happened around it were amplified and there was minimal interference. It was as if the lake was a giant amplifier. He was so interested in it that he decided to go to the center of the lake and try it out himself, essentially forgetting that he was here to practice. He had no instruments to test out the lake with, but every musician knows they always have an instrument on them, their voices. While not the best singer Zen wasn’t horrible. He closed his eyes and started to sing.

What he heard was amazing. The surrounding area filled with his voice. It resonated and reflected inside the lake, amplifying it and filling miles around with his voice. This place was perfect. He felt so serene. Suddenly he felt his own reishi spike. In front of him stood a man wearing a pure white suit with a red tie. Zen instantly knew who this was. It was the spirit of his Zanpakutō. They had met before in his inner world, but the man never spoke. At the time it was mildly understandable, but as it kept going on it was frustrating. Finally, the man spoke “It seems you found your own voice.” The spirit said. Zen was confused about it, find his own voice, what did that mean. “You came here to train your sword skills. But you left that behind and found something you were good at. Something we are both good at.” Zen felt the need to pull out his Zanpakutō and hold it in front of his spirit. They both held it, and Zen finally learned his Zanpakutō’s name. He nodded at Aurora and said “Command! Aurora!”

The area was filled with a brilliant blue light, his spirit pressure pushing the water away from where he was standing. In his hands, instead of a sword, was a medium length conductor’s baton. It was simple. Dark blue with some silver bands along the bottom, middle and tip. He was surprised at what he was holding. Now it made sense why he was so bad at Zanjutsu! He wasn’t going to need it! Though his spike in pressure did set of some alarms, so he was surrounded by 4 Shinigami who promptly took him back to the Academy.
After a few days his Zanpakutō hadn’t changed back to its sword form. This meant it was one of the few constant release zones. This usually meant that the owner had great spiritual power, but at the same time it could also mean that they couldn’t control it, shown by the inability to revert it back to a lower power state. Regardless of that fact, he still released his Shikai, putting him far ahead of what other students could do.

Zen as stationed in squad 13, having graduated from the academy fairly soon after unlocking his shikai. He was stationed in different locations of the human world, rotating between cities that were having hollow problems, as with his shikai he could quickly dispatch of any low level problems. Though he did find it strange that no matter where he went there were a significantly higher quantity of hollows, and they were getting stronger. He also noticed that Shinigami stationed in the human world were also going missing as of late, which was even stranger. Those in the squad were strong enough to take care of the regular hollows that came to Earth and there were not reports of anything too strong, so them dying in combat would be highly unlikely. He wanted to ask his captain about this but he was always out on missions and could not be reached via other means of communication.

One day the captain asked several members, to go meet him out in a cave, which was a fair distance from the Seretei and populated areas of the Rukongai. The closer they got to the cave Zen felt the presence of hollows. A large number of them, but he couldn’t pinpoint any of them. It got stronger and stronger as they went into the cave, where they saw the captain standing infront of an open Garganta.

Everyone was surprised at the sight, but before any of them hollows jumped out of the portal and took them by surprise. That had all been attacked by one, with the exception of Zen, who blasted one with sound, causing it to disintegrate in the air. The rest of the group was dead, the hollows eating their bodies, consuming their energy. The captain had a sullen look on his face, saying to Zen that he broke orders by not feeding the hollows. Failing to follow the direct commands of a captain is insubordination and he had to be punished for it. The hollows that had come from the Garganta ran over to the captain as they began to melt and the dark energy they released covered the captain’s body. An insane laugh filled the cave as the captains body was distorted and mutated. He no longer was a Shinigami. Before Zen stood a giant hollow. Its giant bony mask like face staring down at him, its mouth dripping with hunger. Zen’s instinctive nature was to flash step away, if he had to fight it was not going to be inside of this cave.

The moment Zen was outside he took out his Zanpakutō and sent out a sonic message to the Seretei, asking for assistance as he had encountered a very strong hollow. It was going to take time for help to arrive, he had to fight it alone for the moment. He did recognize the area he was in, the lake with good acoustics was near here. The hollow followed him, firing cero and bala as he did, but zen was fast enough to doge out of the way as he made it to the lake he was looking for. One he got to the lake the former captain talked to him in a voice filled with madness. He asked Zen what he thought he was going to do, he wasn’t strong enough to win. He offered him a choice. He could join him as a hollow, or die due to his insubordination, he was still his captain, he had to follow orders, and Zen had to follow orders.

Zen was indeed conflicted about having to follow orders, but he was not obligated to follow someone’s specific orders. A buzzing sound filled the air, it was the sound of static noise. Zen’s reiatsu started to show, it was sky blue, and looked like the visual representation of the noise, static. The color started to change though. The blue was starting to darken, turning redder and redder, until it was a brilliant crimson color. The static noise was amplified by the lake bellow, now it could be heard for miles around, and the hollow grabbed its head as the volume was unbearable and pain inducing. Zen chuckled as he opened his eyes slightly, his irises the same crimson color as his aura. He told the captain that he wasn’t going to follow his orders. He no longer was his captain, and that Zen was the one that was going to dictate what was going to happen from now on between them.

Zen heard Tenmei’s voice telling him to call out his real name. It was the time to unleash his real power and bring order to those that dare defy him, those that would dictate their own laws and orders above his own. Zen smirked as he whispered “Bankai.” At that moment the static ended as the crimson energy covered Zen’s body. His spiritual pressure went over the roof, this was at the same time that members from squad 11 reached the area, they stopped right at the clearing as they were stricken with fear. The hollow was also stricken with fear as that is what Zen’s pressure commanded. Zen didn’t look any different, but his Zanpakutō was now heavily ornate.

Zen flash stepped directly in front of the hollow and released a flurry of blows at him. Zen was not skilled in zanjutsu, but he was exceptionally good at hakuda. He tore into the hollows body, blood spraying all over his body, his hands covered in it. He gave an upper cut sending the hollow flying into the sky. As he did his Zanpakutō was covered in his red reiatsu, it solidified into a short, but sharp, blade. He quickly reached the hollow and started to tear into him again, this time his hakuda translating into his short sword, slashing and goring the hollow. Its body parts falling down onto the lake, staining it red with its blood. At the end of this assault there was nothing left of the hollow except its head. It fell to the ground. Zen landed next to it as he glared down at it and pointed his Zanpakutō at it. He said to it “Insubordination” before blasting it with sound, causing the mask to shatter.

The squad around him had seen the entire battle, if one could call it that. The captain of the 11th squad was also present and approached Zen. He took Zen to the captain commander and explained what he had seen Zen do. At this point Zen had calmed down, his eyes no longer red, his aura calm. The captain commander asked to be left alone with Zen. He asked him to explain wat had happened, and Zen explained everything that he had seen. The murder of his squad members and the hollowfication of the captain. The commander looked at Zen and asked him to never reveal the hollowfication incident to anyone. Zen agreed to that order. After the meeting he was placed as the Captain of the squad 13, as there were few members left and he was deemed the most capable of doing the job.

His stay as captain wasn’t long, only lasting a few years. It’s not that he didn’t like the job, but he just didn’t want to continue in his position. He wanted to relax and live a normal life. Though he still wanted to keep the world safe. He went to the commander and asked if he could go live in the human world. He explained how he felt and that he was still willing to help the Gotei when needed. This came as a surprise as no one had asked for this type of request before. At first the commander was reluctant to allow him to live in the human world, but a deal was struck, he would live in the human world for one normal human lifetime, and return to the seretei for 50 years, to ensure that his identity would not be revealed to humans.

While in the human world one day he found something interesting. In the dusk hours he saw something glowing in an alley way. He took a look inside to find a large crystal rosebud that radiated a large amount of spirit energy. He got closer to see that someone, or something was inside of it. It seemed to be a small man, but upon closer inspection it was an arrancar. An arrancar in the city? Sleeping? That was odd. Though he did get a sense of familiarity. It had been so long. He got close and used his own spirit pressure to melt away the crystal structure. As it melted the man inside woke up. His first instinct was to cower in the spot he was in. After a few moment the man started to cry and ran up and hugged Zen. The arrancar cried into him and said he was happy that Zen-san had found him. That’s a name he hadn’t heard in a long time. Few people had ever called him that. Zen looked down and tiled the Arrancar face to look at him. Past the tears and the pieces of broken mask, the face was familiar. He recognized him, it was Viz. Viz used to be a Shinigami, but had decided to side with Aizen many years ago. Viz told his story, to how Aizen had taken advantage and turned him into an Arrancar, how he escaped and waited there for someone to find him.

Zen didn’t know what to do. Viz was an arrancar, but he didn’t seem like he was evil. He was scared and just wanted to be safe. With a sigh he decided to help Viz by letting live him in his house. Slowly word did get out that Viz was there, and that he was an arrancar. At first it was quite troublesome as people were assholes and didn’t understand, but as time went on Zen helped Viz and others understand the situation, so that Viz could be safe.

Centuries passed in the human world and as humans became more spiritually aware and events passed Zen did not need to hide any longer. He did not need to fake his identity and split his time between the human world and the gotei. He now had the life that he wanted, to live in the human world and still work for the seretei, his own rules. Eventually the Gotei restructured itself, and as such they were looking for people who were capable enough to become captains of now much larger branches of the organization. Having the strength and previous experience of being a captain Zen volunteered to be the captain of the Kido Corps. Where he proudly serves to this day.

Reiatsu Color: Sky Blue/Crimson

Zanpakutô Spirit Name: Tenmei (Aurora)

Zanpakutô Spirit Appearance: Tenmei is a man dressed in a completely white suit with a red tie. He stands at a height similar to Zen’s with short brown hair and red eyes. For the first few meetings he was completely silent. When Zen awakened his Shikai he heard Tenmei’s voice, which was deep and commanding.

Tenmei is also known for manifesting himself more often than other Zanpakutō spirits (more detail in the Shikai section).

Inner World: Their inner worlds is an empty gold stage surrounded by darkness. A spotlight shines on them when they are in it.

Sealed Zanpakutô Apperance : Currently none. It is a constant release Zanpakutō, it lost its sword form when Zen first released it.

Sealed Zanpakutô Abilities: None.

Release: Command! Aurora! (Meijiru! Tenmei!)

Shikai Description:
After saying his release phrase his sword completely disappears and the hilt of his sword transforms into a conductors baton. The baton is a deep blue color, almost black. It measures 15 inches in length. https://a.1stdibscdn.com/archivesE/1stdibs/092311/TudorRose_is/1/x.jpg" border="0" alt=""/>

Shikai Abilities:
Manifestation: Tenmei can willingly manifest himself outside of the inner world. While all Zanpakutō spirits have this ability, he dos it relatively frequently in comparison. He often comes out when he pleases, depending on the situation. Sometimes he just wants to be outside, sometimes he wants to keep Zen company, sometimes he wants to chime in on a conversation in an external manner, and in dire situations when Zen can’t act for himself.

When in battle Tenmei has the same abilities detailed in this and the Bankai section, and always acts as if he was in Bankai, regardless of whether if Zen has activated it in battle or not. Tenmei will only be in battles if Zen has gotten to a state where he cannot fight, but is not unconscious. An example of it would be when Zen was in a fight with HIsao, and he could not move without having dealing damage to himself, essentially being paralyzed, but in that case Zen asked for the help, before it being provided.
Tenmei can only provide assistance ONCE per thread. The duration of this cannot exceed 5 posts, but if he sustains a large amount of damage, or if he willingly returns to the Zanpakutō, he cannot participate in the battle again. This also counts if he is outside of the Zanpakutō before a battle starts in a thread.

While outside Zen’s Zanpakutō abilities’ power are cut by 3/4 and he cannot access Bankai. The only exception to this is the Arpeggio ability. The cost of merged kido goes up by 4x.

Order: Zen’s Zanpakutō focuses on maintaining order, and more importantly the order Zen wants others to follow. This has manifested itself in the way of music, no matter how disorganized a piece of music sounds there are underlying rules that allow the music to be played. He uses some of those rules as his abilities to maintain order as the conductor of the battle field.
Sound Manipulation: Zen has the ability to create sounds around him and fights with sound. The manipulation can work in various ways. He can create normal sounds within the area that his Illuminacion affects, that is these sounds don’t have any effect that normal sound wouldn’t have. They can range from a pin dropping to that of an entire orchestra playing. In a similar way he can manipulate leady existing sounds, as long as they have exited what created them. For example he could make someone voice sound differ after their words leave their mouth, even going as far as making their words make no sound at all. Creating and manipulating sounds in this way does not require much, if any energy on his part.

One step above is taking sounds and making them dangerous in a non “supernatural” way This means he can take sounds and make them dangerous based on their normal properties, such as volume, frequency, direction, speed, and pressure. By affecting volume he can take even the quiet drop of a pin and turn it into an ear splitting sound. Changing it frequency Zen can turn a dangerous high volume sound into something that is inaudible, thus causing the effects of his non visible sounds to seem to come from nowhere. This means that he can create infra and ultrasound. While infrasound is relatively harmless, the ultrasonic vibrations can be used to create vicious vibrations that can make even the sturdiest materials crumble, though it might take some time if it was made by a very good crafter (This is further explained in Timbre). An effect that this ultrasound can do is cavitation, which is voids that quickly pressurize causing extreme pressure and heat, resulting in a shockwave. This does not happen unless he uses ultrasound for a long period of time, and it can occur randomly. When changing direction Zen can move the sound in his area of influence, changing its trajectory. When this happens the sound forms into a semi visible stream, as the forced air distorts and bends light slightly. Changing the speed that which the sound travels, by itself doesn’t do much besides slowing down or speeding up the sound wave, but when combined with pressure is when things get different. When Zen changes the pressure at which the sound travels this increases the force that it has, essentially making sound a powerful force. When changing the pressure and speed of sound Zen can create wind, ranging from a gentle breeze to powerful gales. While not too complicated or taxing, using these abilities, such as creating a sustained gale, can slowly drain his energy.

Things start to get more draining when Zen creates his own waves to fight with. While he can control waves inside of his Illuminacion, when it comes to creating his own attack sounds he is limited to an area of 10 feet around his body. The waves can be pointed in any direction, but they are limited to 4 types: sphere, line, cone, and blade. They each have their own properties. Sphere creates an orb of sound around Zen. This orb can range in size from 10 feet in diameter, to 100 feet. A line burst can reach up t0 250 feet away, but can only be up to 10 feet wide. A cone can travel 100 feet and progressive gets larger as it travels, reaching a maximum of 50 feet wide. Blades are compressed waves of sound that Zen can control throughout his Illuminacion. Cone and sphere waves become weaker the more that they travel, only being 1/4 of their original strength when at their maximum reach. Line waves don’t lose their strength, but they can only be fired in one direction, and after being fired Zen cannot change its direction. Blades do not lose their strength, but Zen must concentrate on controlling them to keep moving them.

He does not need to be entirely focused to use this ability, but the more complex actions he takes the less he can concentrate on abilities that require concentration, such as Arpeggio.

Tempo Strike: With his sword gone Zen has focused on Hakuda, but that doesn’t mean that he can’t use his Zanpakutō as a dagger. By covering it in air and spirit energy he creates a very sharp blade. He basis his skill with this weapon off of his Hakuda skill instead of Zanjutsu.

Iluminacion: This ability spreads out 500 feet around Zen. He can create touchable, semi-solid illusions. They are mostly used for Zen’s performances but it can be used in battle to disorient opponents. An example would be him creating a wall, that feels like a wall, but when you apply any sort of extra pressure one would go through it.

This ability is mainly passive. The sphere of influence does not carry any constraints to maintain as, in essence, is just an area of effect. He can maintain only one or two illusions at a time. The size of one illusion cannot surpass 100 feet, total. That is he could make a 50 foot, by 50 foot wall (this has an area greater than 100 feet, but in this case what matter is distance over substance). He can combine illusions to make a larger one, but there will be a small, visible, gap between them. When someone, or something passes through and breaks the illusion it cannot be used for 2 posts. If they break just one Zen would only be able to use one illusion. An illusion cannot be changed during the same post, if Zen wishes to change it, he has to wait until he is in a new post to do so.

Illusions do not have to be singular objects. He could create hundreds or thousands of a single object if it is small enough. He could create 100 6 inch by 6 inch butterflies and have them fly around the area of effect.
Bianca: Condenses reiatsu in front of Zen to create a white shield in front of him that absorbs the next attack so that it deals only half of its damage. If Zen is much stronger than his opponent it can negate the attack.

The shield is composed of standing wave. This wave arises when he opposes the resonance of his own spirit pressure with a sound wave. The wave is completely stationary, creating a strong, stable shield that by sheer pressure and immobility. When compared to Bakudo this would be in the range of #30. An attack that surpasses that level of strength passes through the barrier at half strength. If the attack surpasses #60 it bypasses the shield completely.
This aility can only be used every 4 posts. While it does not consume much internal energy, it does decrease his spirit pressure. After 4 posts his spirit pressure returns to his usual level.

Bemol: Zen fires a small orb of concentrated spirit energy that, if it hits its intended target they are shrouded by Zen’s spirit pressure. Due to this strong oppressive force it has similar effects to being in very close proximity to Zen. While its main purpose is to decrease the power of Kido by 5 numbers (thus turning a #20 to a #15, an essentially making anything less than #5 not work), it can cause effects such as fear, paralysis, stunning and pain. Since he still controls this pressure, he can attempt to make opponents feel these effects at will. The effects of this attack are dependent on the spirit pressure of the opponent. If they have a pressure greater than Zen’s the effects are much weaker, if it even works at all. If it works it lasts for 2 posts. A target affected by this has a “b” hovering over their head.

This takes 5% of his internal energy to use. While it may not be a lot, due to his large internal reservoir, to some this amount of energy could be overwhelming. He can use this ability 2 posts after the effect ends, or 2 posts if he misses.

Sharp: Similar to Bemol, but it works in the opposite manner. In this case the energy that he sends out adds to the targets own energy pool, strengthening their kido by 5, and increasing their spirit pressure for 2 posts. Other than that it works the same as Bemol. A target affected by this has “#” over their head. He cannot use it on himself.

Staccato: Zen forms small orbs of spirit energy and sound at the tip of his baton and fires them in rapid succession. The rate of fire is 300 RPS (18,000 RPM) but the orbs do almost negligible damage on their own, but they have decent knockback if the target is hit constantly by them. This ability does not take much concentration to hold for a long period of time, for a maximum of 2 posts. He can use other abilities while he maintains this ability going. After he uses this continuously it hasa cool down period of 1 post.

Tenuto: Zen creates slow moving bars of sound energy that home in on a target. While slow when they come into contact they create a deafening boom that causes moderate amounts of damage. If they do not hit something after 2 posts they will explode wherever they are.

Timbre: This gives Zen an acute sense of hearing, which allows him to be able to hear things from miles away, if he focuses on it. With even greater focus he could identify the resonance of objects.

An objects resonance depends on the material it is made from. When an object is exposed to a wave that has the same resonance it begins to sake violently and eventually break, shatter, or fall apart. The simplest example of this is when an opera singer hits the right pitch and shatters a glass. Objects of poor quality break much easier than those of higher quality. The better quality the object is the longer it takes for it to break, in some cases it could even be impossible to break them. Objects do not need to be exposed continuously to the sound wave to break, as each time they are exposed they take some damage. When the object breaks is subjective to its quality. An example would be that it would take less than one post for Zen to shatter a tree, a low quality sword would take about the same time, while a Zanpakutō could take from 10 to 30 posts of constant exposure to break. Bankai cannot be broken using this ability.

Arpeggio: It allows Zen to use more than one Kido at the same time often causing them to combine into a kido that has the properties of the two or three kido used at the time. The incantation of the kido is spliced together to make a new incantation. Splicing kidos in this way require twice, or three times as long for it to be cast, leaving him open while he casts it. This also averages their level. If he wanted to combine #1 with #50, the resulting kido would be equal in strength to #25.

When combining them he cannot combine kido outside of their own class, he cannot combine Hadō with bakudo, though he can combine bakudo with healing kido if they have an area effect. He can attempt to combine kido that oppose each other, such as fire and water, but this has a high chance of failure. If he is able to combine them the kido created creates something new, such as mixing fire and water kido to make steam kido.

Doing this takes concentration, the more kido he tries to combine, the more focus he has to have. He has been able to combine as much as 4 kido at one time. Combining Hadō is more complicated due to their more unpredictable nature. Bakudo are easier to combine as they are very structured and orderly.
Using this ability to splice two kido does not come at an extra cost, when splicing 3 kido the number increases by 5 in cost, when splicing 4 it takes 10 more. When putting the kido together the energy goes up respectively depending of the average that is created. The energy needed to create the kido is 2x, 3x, or 4x the average cost. If he were to merge Hadō #10 and #20 it would cost 2x what #15 would be, but the strength would be equivalent to #15. If he were to combine #30, #40, #10, and #20 it would have the average power of #25, to that you add 10, so it becomes a #35, and then it becomes 35x4= 140. As the last example shows, the more kido are used the more diminishing returns you get, due to having a very high cost, but if the kido used include very low numbers the resulting kido would be fairly weak compared to the energy put into it.

Fermata: Using a combination of reiatsu and sound Zen creates a loud blast around him. Most projectiles that are in within 5 feet of Zen stop moving for 1 post. This effect follows him. If he moves from the position the projectiles will move once more, and any projectile he tries to send out are also stopped, meaning he cannot use projectile attacks for one post.
This blast actually indicates that he has essentially frozen his spirit pressure closest to his body. This ability locks him into place for the post, not being able to move via conventional means. The only way for him to exit this area is to flash step out of it, but doing so could cause him to take some damage from the projectiles. It has a cooldown of 1 post.

This ability is based off his Kido skill level. Those above his level, or its equivalent for other races, have no trouble bypassing this barrier.
Bankai Description: True Name: Infinite Aurora (Mugen Tenmei).
Unlike other Bankai Zen’s bankai causes minimal change to his Zanpakutō. The baton he holds turns gold and very ornate, a constant stream of music notes float around Zen. When in Bankai, regardless of what he was wearing before, he wears his captain uniform.

Bankai Abilities:
Concerto: Zen can now use his sound attacks from an origin point that is not him. He can create attacks that originate from an area within his Illuminacion range (500 feet). They still travel in the same shapes, but those that have a cone or line shape can be positioned at different angles.
Sound Cannon: Zen can capture non-physical attacks and fire them back. He does this by creating a circular wall of reiatsu and compressed air in front of him. This stops the attack and then Zen can release it forward. He can do this to absorb several attacks, but it has some drawbacks. While he does this he becomes immobile, as he has to lock himself in place to absorb he knockback from attacks as they suddenly stop. While there is no limit on how many attacks he can stop, the more attacks that he stops increase the load, eventually attacks can overload his ability to stop them, causing them to release their energy wildly around the area, hurting Zen and firing the energy randomly.

Crescendo: A cone shaped blast of reiatsu that empowers kido, and other reiatsu based attacks that travel in this area. This area is a 50 foot cone. Any spirit based attack that enters it is empowered by 1/3.
Diminuendo: Works in a similar way to Crescendo. This time he uses his spirit pressure to degrade kido that are targeting him. It travels in a cone shaped wave that reached out to 50 feet. Due to this shift in pressure, while this ability is used his back is exposed to attacks as his defenses are focused on his front. Strength of those attacks is reduced by 1/2.

This only affects attacks that are below his own Kido skill. Those at and above his skill are affected minimally, but are still affected by it to a small degree.
Simile: Zen can attempt to copy kido used by others to negate them. This mainly works for kido that he has already learned, that is he cannot cancel a kido that he hasn’t seen before. If he wants to cancel it, he must take some time to learn a bit about it. If he sees a new kido it takes 3 posts to be able to copy it, and 6 posts to be able to cancel it. This only works for kido that are open to everyone. It does not work for kido made specifically, or only known by one or a few select characters.

Marcato: V shaped projectiles composed of reiatsu and sound fly out and travel at a high speed and on contact creates 10 foot wide explosions.
This is similar to Staccato. Its fire rate is much slower at 10RPS (60 RPM). The projectiles hae the strength of bullets, but their 10 foot explosions do not cause much damage, they essentially just create large knockback.
Silencio: Sound based attacks have a reduced effect on Zen. The strength of these attacks is reduced by 1/3.

Fortissimo: If Zen makes an attacks and yells fortissimo the effectiveness of the attack raises by 2x. This makes him give out a burst of energy, leaving him tired for 1 post after using this ability. Doing this makes the Kido cost 2.5x its original cost.

• Name: Ijara do Nascimento
• Titles: Mãe-do-Santo (Priestess of the orixás), Egbomi (Elder, honorary title for years of service)
• Gender: Female
• Appearance Age: 70-80 years
• Age: Around 500 years
• Affiliation/Rank: Rogue; a hermit that lives in the wilderness that borders Rukongai.

• Appearance Description: An old woman of brazilian complexion, with dark brown skin. She wears the traditional puffy white dress of the mães-dos-santos, now dirtied, muddy, the lower part nearly black. Heavy beads hang from her neck and her white hair is hidden under a headcloth of blue silk. The deep lines on her face show her age and experience, her mouth typically displays a skeptical half-smile, her eyes still glitter with youth, energy and mischief.

Ijara moves quite slowly and is hunched over a staff.

• Personality:

• Stubborn: The old woman is firmly set in her ways and will not easily be made to see another point of view. After all, what do they know of life?

• Foul-Mouthed: You could call her blunt, but let's face it. Ijara just loves to curse and swear in the strongest language and will delight in learning new profanities.

• Disillusioned: Born into the candomblé religion, Ijara was trained to be a mother-of-saints from a very young age. She served the orixás (saints or deities) for many years; when she woke up in Soul Society it was quite a shock to her world view. First she went through a phase of deep depression, believing her former life of service to have been in vain. However, conversations with other Shinigami made her realize that her work in life was not too unlike the work of a shinigami: Being a bridge between the worlds. Conversations with Exú, the spirit of her Zan, have reinforced her newly found conviction, but she will never again take the things she is told as a given.

• Mischievous: Channeling the trickster-spirit Exú has left an impact on Ijara's personality. Contradictory and tricksy, Ijara can enjoy making fun of her peers and enemies alike. More often than not she does it to teach, rather than to humiliate.

• Caring: It's true, Ijara can come across as hard faced, but once she likes someone she will go to great lengths to protect them.



• Likes: After her life of service, Ijara enjoys her unlife in solitude. A reclusive hermit, the old woman loves to smoke her pipe in her garden, dance to the rythms of her zan and get really drunk on her self-made rum. On the rare occasions that she does socialize with others, she usually plays tricks on them. Ijara respects knowledge and humility in people.

• Dislikes: Ijara really hates shoes and socks and will usually be seen barefoot, as evidenced by the muddy crust around her feet. She grew up in the firm belief that all people have an equally important destiny to fulfill and can't stand self-important and arrogant people, especially nobles. Ijara just can't get used to modern technology and hates the feeling of falling, both things at least partially related to her death.

• History: Ijara was born in Brazil in the early 1920s and grew up as a lonely orphan and street child. Adopted into a candomblé community, she was from a young age chosen to be a future priestess and taught in the ways of the afro-brazilian religion. The old woman looks back on many years of faithful service to the gods and to her community, leading people in life and helping the dead cross the bridge between the world of men and what she believed was the world of the saints (or gods, or simply spirits, depending on certain mistranslations and interpretations of the old african words).

While still somewhat believing that "nothing can cross Yemanjás Ocean", Ijara let herself be persuaded to travel to Japan for a festival displaying different religious practices. Fearfully she fell asleep on the flight.

When she woke up, she had reached soul society. Her knowledge of medicinal herbs helped her carve out a life, but she soon grew tired of the many people in Rukongai. Having grown up in the reclusive community in the jungle, she left to find a place in the wilderness and began cultivating a beautiful garden.

One day she came across a deeply wounded Shinigami in the forest. She tried as hard as she could, but she just couldn't heal the man's wounds; this disappointment in herself still haunts her to this day. The man's zanpakutô seemed to call to her, and she made it her own.

In the years that followed, Ijara began building a relationship with her Zan. After hollows attacked her garden and she had to defend herself, the sword that had laid dormant for over a century began to speak to her.

After all the years of service, quite selfishly Ijara refused to take much part in the world around her and focused mostly on her vices and her own happiness. However, rumours of war have reached those old wrinkled ears, and there's a yearning in those old bones for some excitement and battle.

• Reiatsu Color: Grey

• Personal Abilities:
Hakuda: Despite her fragile and slow appearance, Ijara can move surprisingly fast and is quite proficient at hand-to-hand combat. She employs a very agile, fluid style to dodge and redirect the enemy's attacks.

Bakudo: Locking the enemy in place while Exú's entrancement slowly takes effect is Ijara's main combat strategy. Hence she strives to perfect her binding techniques (around #60).

Hadō: Ijara is focused on defense and redirection and has only limited offensive abilities (around #40).

Kaido: The great Captain Unohana once procured rare medicinal herbs from Ijara's garden. The women got along really well; to show her gratitude, Unohana began teaching Ijara the art of Kaido. While she relies on natural healing methods, she is making progress in Kaido, but grave injuries are still beyond her.

• Zanpakutô Spirit Name: Exú

• Zanpakutô Spirit Appearance: A black man dressed in red, wearing a pointy hat made of red and white pearls and a skirt of black and red, smoking a heavy cigar, a gourd of cachaça rum on his hip, playing a rumpi drum. His look is absent, clouded, but there's a faint devious smile on his lips.

• Zanpakutô Spirit Picture: Topics tagged under 40 on Bleach Platinum Hearts RP [Active] Exu

• Inner World: A sandy beach, the endless ocean, and the rainforest. Ijara carries within the blade echoes of all the people whose lives she ever touched, the people she helped or failed to help, a festival of voices and emotions.

• Sealed Zanpakutô Apperance: A small blade (短刀, tantou), concealed within a monk's staff (錫杖, shakujō).

• Sealed Zanpakutô Abilities: Exú the trickster loves to disguise himself and play pretend. As such, when Ijara is alone with someone, she can take the form of others or even made up people. However, Exú is also always drunk and loves to contradict himself. Counterplay: Ijara is forced to contradict herself at least once while speaking as another person. If the target notices and calls Ijara out on the contradiction, the Illusion is shattered.

• Release: Entrance, Exú!

• Shikai Description: Upon release, Exú appears as a ghostly figure, smoking and playing his drum. This release transforms the zan into a pointed trident.

• Shikai Abilities: The sounds of the drum and the heavy smoke from the ghostly figure begin to take their toll on all hostiles within earshot. The effects start out small, the drums barely audible. Invokes drunkenness in the enemy. Increased exposure to the aoe intensifies the effect, the drums begin to roar ever more loudly, until the enemy can barely stand or think straight.

The enemy suffers penalties towards their accuracy, speed and reiatsu concentration, while Ijara's fighting spirit is invigorated. Prolonged exposure to the drums can force the enemy into a deep trance and force them to dance, loosing control over their actions completely. Counterplay: Striking the ghostly image of Exú with enough reiatsu will break the effect, even if it can be hard to pull off since he is quite agile.

• Roleplay Sample: (** I am posting an excerpt from a vampire: the masquerade storyline I GM'ed on forums for a friend. The player character Mackenzie was created as having somehow embraced herself by diablerizing Sergio Giovanni, and is now awaiting judgement. I'm leaving out most of the player posts, except when answers are necessary for the dialogue. **)

(...)

< What's going to await me behind this door? >

Making an effort to pull yourself together you put your fingers on the door, feel the cold, silvery metal under your fingertips,... and push.

The corridor opens into a hexagonal open space under the night sky, with one side opening towards the sea. A full moon shines through the missing roof and illuminates a ghastly and pale scenery:

A long-necked man stands lonely besides a blazing fire and is warming his hands. He looks at you with dark, button-like, curious eyes, then turns back towards the fire.

You stand there for a moment, then gather your strength and start walking up to him. Suddenly you realize that Isabella is standing next to him, her hands slowly and teasingly playing with the flames - but you had not seen her before.

Words are spoken in italian, the man sighs, then turns towards you.

"So, you are the figliare that killed my grandson Sergio." he intones in an accented, but nuanced and practiced english.

A coldness grips your heart, and you feel a range of emotions from anger to... gratitude? You recoil in horror as you get a feeling that Augustus has not quite made up his mind whether to rip your heart out of your chest or not.


[Player] - Yes, I am. Even though I don't know how.


Augustus nods slowly, and his expression turns to pity as his eyes soften.

"Only once in the history of our family have we allowed an outsider to join our ranks - and live. But Isabella here has told me you are not an ordinary case; AND you have rendered your new sire a valuable service."

He suddenly approaches you with an agility and speed you had not thought him capable of, grabs you by the neck and pierces your heart with a long wooden stake.

"I shall examine you to prove your worth, but first..." Augustus turns towards Isabella, and she instinctively kneels down.

"Isabella Giovanni! As a reward for your victory I shall allow you to keep this toy... [in your possesion, as well as retain control over the designated contested assets in Sicilly and Firenze.]"

Somehow you miss the end of the sentence, distracted you manage to turn your eyes downwards:

Your arm is twitching. Your muscles are moving slightly. The index finger on your right arm begins to twitch slowly and you experience a rush of euphoria while the potence in your veins strengthens your muscles. The terrible rage you had felt when you spoke with Isabella is rising in your body, swelling to a powerful hurricane.

The voice is talking to you again, clearer now, colder and deadlier. It is not the warm, caressing voice that had whispered those beautiful words to you earlier.

It is your own voice, but it talks to you in a rough, harsh but strangely seducing tone. < They are liars, both of them. They betray. They deserve it. Deserve... deserve... >

Your attention focuses back to the ancient Giovanni who is in the middle of saying "The feud ends by final death of Sergio Giovanni."

It is in this very instant that the rage becomes overwhelming. You bite your tongue, do everything to control yourself... you feel, would you hesitate, would you weaken your self-control for an instant and listen to it... terrible things would happen...

The alien will in your mind is almost unbearable to withstand,...

[Willpower x5 vs 7...]


[Player] That voice was hers, but she didn't feel familiar with it. It was unlike her, and soon she realized that it did neither suggest, nor did it ask politely. It demanded. She listened at first, but decided soon that she had heard enough. She didn't want to succumb to violence again. She didn't want to be a murderer. <"Mary had a little lamb, little lamb, little lamb. Mary had a little lamb, Whose fleece was white as snow...">


The moment Isabella squeezes your hand and looks into your eyes, the rage ebbs away, the voice is silent. She exchanges a quick glance with Augustus, and you see amazement and pride in his face.

"I told you she was special, and she has passed your test hasn't she?"

Augustus nods. "It is remarkable that you can muster the strength to keep the voice at bay, my progeny."

He turns to the shadowy man standing a few feet away, wearing a long skirt made of black silk, as well as earrings in the form of a cross with pointed edges. Just like with Isabella before, you had not noticed him at all ... it requires force of will just to look where he stands, and whenever your eyes look back to Isabella, you have to control yourself not to forget he is there.

"Your services are no longer required, Baro Adriano. The debt has been fulfilled, we are quite pleased." Augustus anounces. The ravnos elder nods and bows, at which moment the building, island, sky, sand and fire vanish before your eyes - along with the mysterious vampire himself. The remaining three of you are standing on a podest in a large room, and as you turn around you see at least twenty vampires sitting and watching the theatrical play that was all you have lived through until now. They applaud you, and cheer, welcoming you to the Giovanni family.

[THE KIDO MASTERLIST]



This will be the list of all Kido Techniques on the site, both Canon and Custom. This list will be composed in the way of all kido being in order by number and in the following format.

Note: When I organized the Custom Kido, I went from the last page to the most recent page, getting things chronologically. For this reason, if a Kido has a number that conflicts with the number of a Canon or Custom Kido that came before it, I simply put it under "Unknown Number". If you see one of your kido on the Unknown Number list and would like to assign it to an untaken number, just let me know and I'll make the appropriate changes.

Note #2: Before using one of these Kido in a thread, check to make sure it's a Kido that your character can use. If it's too high of a level for them, or if its specific to only one practitioner, do not use that kido.

Note #3(Added by Wan):The url hyperlink for each custom kido keys off the "Hadō" or "Bakudo" not the name of the kido itself.
