Butshinriteki - Shinri for short [Mental Striker]
As with most Pakumato, he is constantly in Shikai, which is roughly equivalent to the sealed state of a Espada. While not a physical fighter, his body is not allowed to be turned into a untaken care of frame, and thus is constantly kept in top physical shape through the powerful mind he holds; even if his overall power does not reflect this. His hair falls to the back of his neck, though the front is clipped so only the left bang hangs over his left eye. Looking into his right will show that he has deep hazel eyes. His attire consists of inverted Shinigami robes, with no other additions. His Katana, while not his actual, is kept vertically along his back though the handle is held downward, meaning when he uses it, he must pull it downward; to aid in this, he augmented his limbs to stretch as he pleases. Like his former partner, he keeps his face lined with a flamboyant mark coming down from his left eye, made with bones. On his left shoulder, is a Hollow Hole. His Hollow Mask is crafted like maniac-smile, with a S-shape bone protrusion coming from the left side.
He was the Zanpakuto of the former Vice-Captain of the Twelfth Squad, who was largely regarded as the third smartest woman in the entirety of the Soul Society, just behind the Captain‘s sister. Umeko, his master, quite enjoyed taking jaunts through the Inner World of her Zanpakuto and had was on good enough terms with her spirit to learn Shikai relatively soon. Butshinriteki took after her, modeling his personality to hers, which led him to be relatively caring about Umeka. Like his master, Butshinriteki is quite intelligent, capable of answering advanced questions in the blink of an eye, and figuring out the elaborate inventions that Szazel came up with in a relatively shorter time than the rest of the Gotei 13, with few excepted. Prior to being taken by Iyou, Butshinriteki was known to help his master out of sticky situations when one arose, using its mastery of mental combat, and its massive intellect.
When Iyou came to power, with the Pakumato as his top Guards, he set in place several doctrines, one of which granted the Octava Pakumato, his own laboratories and nearly endless test subjects. His genius-level intellect caused him to be held in high regard by the Primera Pakumato, and though he does not outwardly show it, he respects the most powerful member, even if he sees him as just another test subject. Several times, in passing comments, he offered to lessen the pain when he experimented on him, if he came quietly and willingly. Turned down each time, he found more respect and began formulating more plans of experimentation on the Spirit Reaper. One such experiment focuses solely on taking his abilities for his own, as he is intrigued by the abilities that Iyou stated were no less than, ‘Beautiful Master of All.’
As stated earlier, the Mental Striker is not physically powerful. His strength is completely in his Intelligence, giving him an advantage against most opponents. Another of his strengths is the strange gadgets and body modifications he has made to himself, to increase his chances of several should an attack ever come. To this end, he is skilled with his Cero and Intelligence, but somewhat lacks in other departments. To make up for this, he augmented his Cero to have a range of effects, ranging from no damage, but paralysis, to complete neurotoxin. Well aware that he lacks in Reiatsu, he understands that there is a chance that his effects may not be as effective as he wishes. His main goal in life, is to take down the only man whom was smarter than himself, in his own eyes. Szazel Seiko!

Powers and Abilities:
*Note: Butshinriteki intelligence is much higher than the majority of the Pakumato, however, Hollowification has hindered this until his Masked-Release.

Cero/Reiatsu: 4 - One of the more proficient Pakumato at Cero, he can add secondary effects to his Cero! Ranging from no damage(Scare Tactic) to Poison/Paralysis and more!
He gains nothing from his Shikai, as the Hollowification prevents him from accessing any abilities gained by it, replacing them with Hollow-Traits. His abilities come into play when in Mask-Released.
