Age: 451 (appears late 20's)
History: He started off in an upper district for a hundred years or so. Once Akimoto was finally summoned to the Academy he resisted much of the combat training and mostly anything offensive although slowly grew to accept the fact that it must be learned to be stopped. He took on a focus of hand-to-hand and sword combat, mostly defensive. There was also a focus on strategy. He has a deep but complicated relationship with his Zanpakuto.
Appearance:SpoilerStands 5'10", a normal height, and weighs 182 lbs. His stance is strong and stoic though he can be seen trying to down-play this. Wears usual Captain's garbs but sleeveless and shoe-less.
Personality: Reserved and interpersonal but not shy. Philosophical and ethical when it comes to everything and keen on word-play. This doesn't make him very popular but he is well liked in the community with his sunny disposition and an almost permanent smile on his face. He takes combat seriously, however, and would rather it not take a long time. When training, he focuses on strength and resistance training as his Zanpakuto is heavier than most. He is also keen on figuring people's weaknesses quickly if he can and mainly out-witting them. If that fails, he goes offensive though keeping defense in the front of his mind.
Likes: Intelligent/deep conversation; the night sky; watching fire; a combination of beef stew and rice
Dislikes: Naivety; reiteration; constant, repetitive noises; spicy foods; alcohol; fighting (verbal and physical)
Strengths: Hakudo, Reiatsu, Strategy, Endurance, His Body
Weaknesses: Hoho, Kido, Resolve, His Mind (sensitive)
Zanpakuto Name: Kasai Fenikkusu (Fire Phoenix)
Element/Type: Fire, Defensive/Passive
Spirit Appearance: A small phoenix (3 ft. tall, excluding the 2 ft. tail) which communicates telepathically with a feminine voice. The surroundings of the inside of the Zanpakuto is a single large grassy hill with stark blue skies and scattered puffy white clouds slowly drifting across them. It is simple and serene. Ironically, there is no sun but it is always daylight.
Sealed Appearance: The blade is white and looks ashy while the hilt is black with red details. The Guard is also black in the shape of outspread wings. This sword is shorter than regular katana with a shorter hilt for a one handed grip. The weight is heavier than a regular katana, though.
Name of Shikai: Kasai Fenikkusu no Hiko (Flying Fire Phoenix)
Release Phrase: Maiagaru (Soar)
[Fires, create life. Ashes, become new. Phoenix of the Fire, soar to protect the Heavens.]
Appearance: The blade begins to glow yellow and orange, as if it were burning, from the reflection of the hilt. It also becomes heavier and duller.
Summons a relatively small yet impenetrable and heavy round shield seemingly "on fire" that is formed from the guard. It is warm to the touch and has the shape of wings on the face.(tailwind)
Must be spoken at precisely the correct time to reflect an attack back at the opponent with equal strength directed toward the back side of the enemy. It ignores shields and barriers or any other defensive measure. This lasts for 1-2 seconds at the longest and cannot sustain continuous attacks. The force of the counter-attack is equivalent to the force the user is able to endure. If the user is knocked back, the damage would be less than if they sustained the attack.----------------------------------------------------------------(healing tear)
A clear and viscous liquid leaks from the bottom of the hilt and will heal almost all injuries completely. This process is relatively slow but happens on its own will. There is a set amount of liquid but can be controlled of how much is used.
Name of Bankai: Fenikkusu no Owari (End of the Phoenix)
Release Phrase: Kon Josho (Now Rise)
[With new life, let the Phoenix rise once more and rid those who wish to harm the ones she deems to protect.]
Appearance: The hilt becomes ashen white with red details and the blade glows more vibrantly and with reddish hues along with the yellow and orange. Even with the absences of the guard, the sword becomes even heavier and duller. If Uingugado is active while performing Bankai (and it usually is), this will become equally heavier.
Uingugado (the guard) is sacrificed to unleash a large and intense attack against the opponent which follows and explodes on contact. Can only be used once as the shield (guard) turns to ash after the explosion but is accurate and deadly. After using this attack he will constantly switch the hand he uses to hold it. Being ambidextrous helps but the weight is difficult for him to control at times.(resurrecting ashes)
The blade releases flames which consume the wielder. When finished, it reveals a black user covered in soot. However, under this, all internal and external wounds are cured and fatigue returned. This brings the user to a mental and physical state from before the battle began. This process is relatively quick and spectacular, the flames being showy and impenetrable. After this, the blade renders to ash yet the weight of, the now only hilt, becomes heavier than before, almost dragging its user down.Note: the guard and blade "disappearing" mean they turn to ash and are rendered "useless." However, when brought back to it's original sealed state, those ashes reform the missing parts.(a new life)
With only the hilt (meaning the other two powers must be used before this), this command merges the spirit of the Zanpakuto with the user. The hilt fuses with them while the skin darkens as if burned and the hair lights on fire. The eyes become bright yellow and large majestic phoenix wings of a reddish hue sprout from the shoulder blades of the wielder. These wings will molt throughout the battle, more-so when defending or attacking with them than just standing there. These feathers begin to turn to ash, and when all have fallen the Zanpakuto regenerates back into its sealed form and this technique ends. Speed increases slightly while strength grows exponentially. The skin becomes tough and won’t be pierced with a strong attack while the wings are largely impenetrable as well, much like the shield. Fire can be spat out at great speeds and a single flap of the wings burns the air and devastates the surroundings.Shinigami [Talent(25)]-
