Aaron Flamberge, played by Ganryu.
Name: Aaron Flamberge
Alias: Crippled Pheonix
True Age: 1750
Appearance Age: 50
Race: Awesome. (Shinigami)
History: Aaron Flamberge is now the oldest living Shinigami after the Tenebrae massacre. He was one of a very few to survive it as captain.
He was born in the Seireiti to a lesser noble family of the Seireiti. As a youth, he was fiery, and passionate. He was trained to be a shinigami before even entering the acadamy. He was considered a rare genius upon entering, rising up the ranks very quickly.
As a career, most men in his squad respected him. He rose up to the rank of captain in a decade, a remarkable feat.
He served as captain for centuries before the Tenebrae incident. At that time he was considered the second most powerful captain in the entirity of the Seireiti.
As the man set up a barrier, none could break through. Madness seemed to spread through the Seirieti. With a burst of strength and Kido-giri, he finally broke through the barrier, and rushed the powerful man. He sparred quite fiercely with the man for approximately an hour.
In the end, Tenebrae brushed him aside, slamming him into a building. Aaron lost conscienceness, and was thought to be dead. The main reason for this was he nearly was, he was even initially counted as amoung the dead, until they saw his breath.
He was found the next day. He was covered in burns from the intense Reitsu of Tenebrae. He became a fair bit bitter, knowing the responsibility he now had. His body was considerably frailer than before, but he now had knowledge no one else had. He had to lead the Seireiti until it recovered from the attack. He acted as Captain Commander Pro-temp quo for 30 years, training Shinigami to fill the massive void left.
He finally found a replacement for captain commander, and stepped down 20 years ago to mere captain. He serves as an advisor still, being the oldest current serving Shinigami captain.
Personality: Aaron's likes to act as a guide for the Seireiti, and not directly involve himself. He tends to act overly like a teacher.
He's a rather gruff individual as a person. He tells people what needs to be done, whether or not they want to hear it. When he talks, it's direct and to the point.
Despite that, he doesn't have any love for formality. He refers to the captain commander as "the kid", and tells everyone to call him Aaron.
He also has a secret mischievous side.
Strengths: Experience is Aaron's main strength. He has seen many battles, and knows how to react to most things. He adapts easily in a fight.
Weaknesses: Aaron has many weaknesses, mostly stemming from his injuries in the Tenebrae fight. His left arm is near useless, leaving him with one arm to fight with. He has little depth perception due to his right eye being damaged. He also suffers from paralyzing headaches on occasion.

Zanpakuto- Hi no tamashī (Soul of Fire)
Zanpakuto Spirit Personality: Hi no Tamashi is serious and to the point. His only wish is Aaron's success.
Zanpakuto Spirit Appearance:
Zanpakuto Spirit Inner World: The inner world is a fiery cavern, with the crystal in the center of it all.
Sealed Zanpakuto:Aaron's sealed blade is a one sided broadsword, like a giant machete. It is the same size as in the profile pic, but white and unadorned.
Release Command: Consume the offering, Hi no Tamashi
Appearance: See pic
Abilities: Hi no Tamashi, as the name would suggest, is a fire-type zanpaktu. It's not a constant burn like Ryujin Jakka, but builds up pressure and heat to explosive points before releasing in a volley. The flames only last seconds when released, but in those seconds they can burn through steel. His zanpaktu also grants him immunity to flame-type attacks.
Bāsuto(Burst)- Stops the flow of heat from his zanpaktu, building up pressure and heat to extreme levels, releasing it in a single large explosion with a swing of the sword.
Bureizurain (Blazeline)- Releases a line of fire infront of him. The fire only last a few moments, reducing whatever is in its path to oblivion in moments before fading.
Kaen(Flametongue)- Condenses fire along the edge of the blade, and causes it to 'grow' in length with the added flames.
Name: Maguma Bāsuto (Magma burst)
Release Command: BANKAI!
Position: Aaron leaps forward, slamming his sword into the ground before calling Bankai. A burst of magma erupts into the air. The ground starts to form fissures of magma spidering outward.
Control: Mastered. However, Aaron's condition stops it's full potential.
Weapon Appearance: The weapon itself is the same, but glows white hot.
Physical Appearance: Aaron's entire appearance glows white hot with the flames. The air is licked by the heat around him.
The ability is simple, yet effective. The Bankai's fuel is the area around it. It burns reitsu, reishi, and physical matter. When all resources have been burned away, the bankai ends. When the area has been completely burned away, an empty crater is left, devoid of life.
Maguma Bāsuto's heat comes from Aaron's reitsu, so he has to release a certain amount to heat it. Higher rietsu means much hotter flames. Maguma Bāsuto's form itself is a dome of heat that continually expands. As it expands, it take more reitsu to fuel. It is centered around Aaron's sword.
The main danger to Aaron is while he himself is not harmed by the flame, his reitsu is easily burned by the Bankai. He has to therefore keep his reitsu as low as possible while still keeping it hot enough to burn and be dangerous.
SpoilerName: Tenebrae Metus
Aliases: Black Scar/God of the Rukongai/ Black Terror
True Age: ????
Appearance Age: 30
Rank: God of the Rukongai
History: Tenebrae had always been set apart from his peers, a different league. He was considered a danger to the sierieti. He joined the acadamy as a child. Within a month, he was the strongest in the class. In a year, he surpassed the proctors. When he was to be graduated after just a year, he slaughtered the entire acadamy and left. He had declared he had no peer from the beginning.
He became a target of the 2nd division, assassins sent after him. As they were searching, he broke into the division headquarters. He left a trail of blood. Few high ranking members were in the division, but his level of threat had clearly been established.
He searched and searched the Rukongai, for people he deemed worthy to travel with him. Blood followed him where he went. He was personally responsible for the slaughter of the 81st district, reducing the count of districts to 80 in the Rukongai.
He encountered a captain one day in a district, and dualed them to the death. This was the 1st time Tenebrae had been injured. He laughed maniacally having found someone worthy of his time. He personally declared war on the Serieti, and attacked it, still a youth. He took on the Gotie 13 by himself, fighting on equal footing. Eventually he was repelled. The Serieiti had thought he had been killed, and labeled him as such.
Little did they know he was alive, and going further and further into the Rukongai, looking for equally strong opponents. Where ever he went, he was referred to as the 'black scar' for the scars on the land he would leave.
He was eventually wound into the sealed district. He smiled as the barriers went up. He would find someone worthy in the district. And he did. He found 4 people worthy of his time, and only 4. The rest perished.
Personality: Tenebrae is extremely condescending. He believes himself to the be the strongest soul ever to live (and not without reason.) He believes only the strong should survive. Any soul that is not strong enough to fight, should be vanquished from existance.
He does many of his pursuits simply to amuse himself. He plays with people like puppets, then crushes them. He left the Seireiti after conquering it simply to see what would happen.
Strengths: Tenebrae's strength is his overwhelming power. He can collapse most Shinigami with nothing more than a gaze.
Weaknesses: Tenebrae doesn't consider most people worthy of his power. He holds back, and often underestimates his foes.
Zanpakuto Spirit Personality: O sama no Ama no Hara is an extremely regal spirit. He sees the world as orderly, and it only proper for Tenebrae to rule.
Zanpakuto Spirit Appearance:
Zanpakuto Spirit Inner World:
Sealed Zanpakuto: Tenebrae's sword is normally sealed within staff. Tenebrae's manipulation of his own reitsu is such he has morphed it as such.
Name: O Sama no Ama no Hara (King of Heaven)
Release Command: Unseal, show the world your unrestrained power, O Sama no Ama no Hara
Abilities: Tenebrae's Shikai increases his control of his own Reitsu to extreme levels. He can use the reitsu itself as a weapon. He can engulf and consume a shingami with reitsu.
Judgement- An attack of Tenebrae's pure black reitsu. It's extremely concentrated beam to consume an opponent. The reitsu is so concentrated, it threatens to destroy the soul itself.
Name: Bekido no Ama no Hara (Wrathe of Heaven)
Control: Complete mastery
Tenebrae's Bankai is freightening. It leaves no one unscathed. His bankai is not the sword that forms, it's not even the ability to control reitsu around him. His bankai IS all reitsu in a 10 mile radius.
It's dangerous in its ability to compress reitsu, able to 'suffocate' a victim with their own reitsu. The only way to fight it is to compress and hide a souls reitsu and fight him with sheer strength. The more flashy an attack is, the easier it is for Tenebrae to control.
Judgement- He can form it more freely in Bankai, not just from his own reitsu.
Armeggedon-Tenebrae's most freightening attack. All reitsu he can force into the sky float upward. It looks like balls of snow going into the sky. Once it is stored in the sky, it rains down in beams devastating a large area.
Name: Tamara Draco
Alias: The Dragon's Heir
Rank: Awakened Quincy/4th seat
History: The quincies were once hunted to near extinction, but with the Tenebrae incident, the Seireiti wanted all the help it could have. They allied with most of the quincy, working with them, and sending shinigami stationed with the quincy. In return, several quincy were stationed with Seirieti.
The Draco family was open to negotiations before even the Tenebrae incident. Tamara's grandfather, Bahamut, was in the Seireiti negotiating terms when the incident happened. Bahamut fought Tenebrae fiercely, with bow in hand. Tenebrae answered with Judgement, a beam of rietsu that burned through Bahamut's chest. A talented healer managed to save him, but the burn was so sever it was thought to be cursed. Perhaps it was fate what shape the burn took on, it looked like a tiger paw, enemy to the Dragon.
When Bahamut had a son, Tamara's father, the burn too was passed down on his back. It seemed to react to Tenebrae's activities. The more active he is, the stronger the burn is felt.
This established Tenebrae as an enemy to the Draco clan long before Tamara was born.
Tamara was born as the 3rd generation bearing the burn.
At a young age she was trained to be a quincy. It seemed odd to her that she was to know a secret world, that no one else her age was to know about. It seemed even stranger that when she was 14, she and her father actually moved to the Seirieti.
She noticed how different she was from everyone there. She was only 14, that was a blink of an eye to a shinigami. Time went differently for her than everyone else around her. But they were kind people mostly. She was progressing nicely as a quincy.
When she was 16, her father gave her some interesting news. She would be the first human ever to be in the Gotie 13, let alone quincy.
She trained even harder so she would keep up his expectation.
It was then a week later that her father recieved news, activity of Tenebrae had been spotted in the Rukongai. He bid her farewell, and left. He still has yet to return.
Every night, she waits for the knock of the door of him returning, even a year later.
Meanwhile she keeps up her duties in the Gotie 13
Personality: Tamara is extremely reserved. She's quiet, and stays away from crowds keeping to herself. This trait makes her a bit creepy to some people. She's kind at heart, but isn't very talkative, so expressing it can be hard for her.
Despite her quiet demeanor, she's very brave. She won't hesitate to risk her life for someone else.
Appearance: I'll find a pic eventually.
She has curly brown hair, and bright blue eyes. She has a leather cape that covers her robes most of the time, covering most of the clothes underneath. While most quincies opt for white clothing, Tamara's clothing is a dull brown.
Strengths: Tamara's arrow strength is rather incredible. She can send piercing shots. Her movement is fairly fast. She's also fairly analytical, aiming for the weakest spots.
Weaknesses: Tamara's a fairly stationary fighter with little defense.

Tamara's weapon is a bow
Letter: W(ill)- Tamara can use the will of those around her, and even her opponents as a weapon. She can gather it with the reishi she gathers, and form some sentience in the arrows she fires with it. She can also tell the general intent of someone on the battle, distinguishing friend from foe.
*About to get it, don't have it yet.
Cupids arrow- By firing a weak arrow into someone, she can strongly impress something on their mind without hurting them. The thought will pester them until they fall unconscience, due it to sleep or otherwise. Arrow has to hit to be effective.
Sentinals- In Vollstandig, she can use the reishi to form archers around her. They are weak, with no durability or speed, but they can fire an arrow just as strongly as she can. She can make 5 at a time, though when in use, she's vulnerable
*Rieshi Grenades- Grenades that blow the reishi around them away.
Quincy Cross: Tamara's bangle is a bit odd, as most quincies opt for a cross shaped bangle, her's is a family crest. A golden bangle, crafted into the shape of a dragon's head.
Vollstandig: (soon to have)
Drachen Überlieferung (Dragon Lore)- In this form, Tamara gains draconian wings behind her, rather than angel like. Her lips, eyes, feet, fingernails and spine all glow white, giving a peculiar look, while highlighting her in a way that looks slightly like a dragon.
Her form enhances her ability to feel the will of those around her, and drains it, leaving those without strong wills unwilling to fight. It also increases her resolution, which at times can be a bad thing, such as wanting to fight a losing battle.
She can use this power to give life to the flowing reishi around her, forming her sentinals
Name: Tomas Wyvern
Alias: Thor's Dragon
True Age: 500
Appearance Age: 25
Division: 5th Espada
History: The dominant spirit within Tomas the Dragon is that of a knight, killed in an effort to bring Glory to his household on the battlefield, missed by the wandering shinigami of the fields. He eventually descended to a hollow, wandering around the field for years, attacking any passerby. He even caught several shinigami, seeing them as a great opponent. One such Shinigami was more than a match, wounding him to the extent that he was forced to retreat, landing in Hueco Mundo, becoming a Menos eventually.
Even as a Menos, he always sought the largest opponent, losing several times, but each time he was merged into another Menos, his spirit dominated their, causing him to exist past dying several times, eventually he became a Adjucant, a magnificant black Dragon, save for the white mask.
He ruled a large mass of area, claiming himself the strongest. For the most part he was right, as no one around him was near his power. Any intruder he did not personally see into his territory was killed.
One day, to declare himself the strongest, he declared he'd make the sky shine, and forced a cero into the air, indeed lighting the sky. This act was the beginning of the end. He had attracted the attention of an Arrancar, much stronger than the Adjucant.
A dual began between the two. The arrancar was the 7th espada of the time, who came to subjegate the dragon. The dual lasted hours, though more to Tomas's resistance than due to his strength.
Finally, the Espada landed a blow straight down the mask of the mighty dragon who fell to the ground, and lay still. The Espada believed he had one, an inspected the corpse, but out of the Flesh, a sword flew out, striking the Espada through the chest, above his hollow whole, killing him instantly.
The removal of the mask had arrancarized Tomas, who emerged from his own flesh.
He joined the espada, taking the place of #7, but rose to #5. He's frustrated by the gap between him and the fourth.
Personality: Tomas is an Espada perpetually seeking glory. He's frustrated that he is only #5, despite his many attempts at power. His goal in any battle is glory, often signing up for near suicidal missions. And he would return.
Strengths: Tomas puts all of his strength in any fight. Any opponent who is not prepared will quickly be overwhelmed, even those on the same tier as him. There is no blocking of his serious strikes, laced with electricity. His strength is in his incredible burst of offense.
Weaknesses: Tomas's strength is also his bane. He holds nothing back, having no tricks up his sleeve. He wears out quickly as well do to his style. His defense is also a little on the lacking side

Resurreccion: Dragon Relampagos. (thunder dragon)
Weapon: Using a mixture of reitsu, electricity, and metal, Tomas creates a sword rough the size of twice his body to form around his right arm. It's extremely powerful for offensive strikes, as even if blocked, a flood of electricity will pour out on the target, and he can fire it like a cannon. For defense, not so good, as it's rather unwieldly to block with.
Release: Strike down, Dragon Relampagos!
Tomas's release strikes his sword in the air, and immediately is struck by lighting, reguardless of the weather. Large strips of metal form out of the ground, and start to swirl, then snap together to create his metalic form.
Abilities: Tomas has two basic abilities in his form. His first is to use electromagnetic pulses to control all metals not imbued with a soul. (I.e. not Zanpaktu's).
He loves fighting opponents with necklaces, as he can choke them with their own accessory. This radius is only the length of half a football field, but he makes great use of it.
The second ability is to control and create electricity. He can control lightning strikes of the air, and the static buzzing constantly around. He can create bolts to fight strike his opponent, with the point of his sword. This of course makes him strongest in a storm.
Arrancar Rank: 5
Hollow Powers:Even unreleased, Tomas has an affinity for lightning. He can send bolts from his hands, and more useful to the Espada, feel the static in the air. Due to this and his style, he's often the guarddog of the Espada.
He tends to fight with alot of flare. His offense is amazing using a wide variety of special attacks and sword strikes.
Custom Cero/Bala: As with accord to his abilities, he can include lightning in his Cero's and Bala's. His strongest technique is Bala de Relampagos. He infuses lightning into a bala, and fires. The bala will be stopped by hitting it's target, the lightning will not, piercing the target, and striking anyone behind them with a powerful bolt.
Cero: Relampagos Oscuras. (Black thunder). - An ultimate attack of sorts. Rather than use a concentrated beam to fire at an opponent of dark released reitsu, Tomas forms a base of his released reitsu, then concentrates all the electricity in the air, and fires a single condensed shot, able to melt metal and pierce through almost anything frying it with intense heat. Charge time is ungodly.
Aspect of Death: Glory
