"No one starts... on the top of the world. Not you. Not me. Not even gods. But the unbearable vacancy of the throne in the sky is over. From now on... I will be sitting on it."
And the best of them all
"You see that pack of Virginia killing sticks on the end of the piano? All you need to know about life is retained in those four walls. You will notice that one of your personalities is seduced by the illusions of grandeur - the gold packet of king size with a regal insignia, an attractive implication towards grandeur and wealth, the subtle suggestion that cigarettes are indeed your royal and loyal friends, and that, Pete, is a lie. Your other personality is trying to draw your attention to the flip side of the discussion, written in boring bold black and white, is a statement that these neat little soldiers of death are in fact trying to kill you and that, Pete, is the truth. Oh, beauty is a beguiling call to death and i'm addicted to the sweet pitch of its siren. That that starts sweet ends bitter, and that which starts bitter ends sweet." - Johnny Quid

Oh well, this will do for now...
Name: Hijikata Sakuya
Rank: Captain of Squad 6
Personality: Soft spoken and well mannered, Sakuya is very much what you would expect from a daughter of nobility. Her gentle nature and welcoming disposition makes her easy for others to approach, even those of much lower ranking then herself as she treats everyone with the same respect as she would expect others to treat her with and as such is very popular with those under her command. No one can recall a time since she became Captain of Squad 3 that they have ever seen her lose her temper with anyone, no matter how much they have done to deserve it or what they have done to or said about her. However despite being kind and forgiving she is no push over and will still punish those under her command should they happen to break the rules of law, provided they don't have a good enough excuse that is. She has also been known to accept punishment on behalf of those whom she feels are being punished unduly.
History: Hijikata Sakuya, the second youngest daughter of the Hijikata Clan, one of the lesser noble families that make up the nobility of the Soul Societies ruling class, a clan with more influence and wealth then its small size would suggest, though like most families they pale before the four great house's. That being said Sakuya was brought up with the proverbial silver spoon in her mouth, a child who would want for nothing and could, if she so wished, live the rest of her days in safety and comfort since there was no expectation that she would have to take over control of the clan one day. Sakuya was a happy child but like many children she wanted more out of the boring but safe life that she had been given and when she found such opportunity to venture outside she would never hesitate, always causing a great deal of stress for her servants and bodyguards.
Sakuya joined the Shinigami Academy despite the wishes of her mother and father and was enrolled without incident or problem, due in part to the influence of the same father that outwardly voiced his concerns for his daughter. That being said he also wished for her to choose her own path in life and if becoming a Shinigami was what she wanted then he would see to it that a Shinigami she would become, his concerns more of a way to simply keep the girls mother from being mad with him as well. But it was this same influence that made things difficult for Sakuya when she first joined the Academy, the rumor of her easy and guaranteed admission doing the rounds before the first day had even ended. Though upset by her fathers help the girl decided to carry on regardless of what her fellow students thought of her, determined to become a Shinigami through her own talents and abilities, not the influence of her family.
Sakuya excelled at her studies, especially in regards to the use of Kido techniques and graduated the Academy on her own merits, her father long since reprimanded by a very upset and annoyed daughter. Upon leaving the Academy she received the 7th seat in one of the 13 Court Guard Squads, though of course the usual rumors of preferential treatment traveled with her but by now she was no longer concerned with them and as always simply did her best to prove her own ability. Though her Bankai is still considered to be incomplete in its mastery her exception skills with Kido more then made up the difference and it did not take her too long after then until she attained the Captaincy of Squad 6.
Strengths: Her movements are fast and agile, even when not using fast movement techniques which makes her very hard to hit directly and counter attack. A master at using Shunpo and Kido she is able to keep herself away from sword reach while attacking at a distance with both her Zanpakuto and Kido. Sakuya is often underestimated due to her appearance which she uses to her advantage. She has very high Reiatsu control.
Weaknesses: Her small size and fragile frame do not lend her any degree of pure physical strength, making her melee attacks relatively easy to push back if blocked well enough to prevent her from following through with another attack. Her physical endurance to being attacked directly is much lower then most of the other captains due her youth and small body. Sakuya is not very skilled when it comes to Hakudo and will use it only as a last resort, with the exception of throws which she is a rather good at. She is poor at sword fighting and dislikes close quarters fighting if it can be avoided.
Zanpakuto Name: Hakumei
Zanpakuto Spirit Personality: Hakumei is a rather stoic and controlled being that rarely loses its temper, even when pushed to do so and shows remarkable restraint when needed. However that is not to say that she does not get angry, rather is a controlled anger that can be used to strengthen resolve and improve her ability to fight allowing her to be pushed beyond her limits without any true complaint. The kind of spirit that would never betray its master and would willingly sacrifice themselves to save that person. Hates people who give up on their goals far too readily.
Sealed Zanpakuto: A very simple but finely crafted Katana that has an almost liquid appearance that reflects light in strange ways.
Appearance – When in Shikai Hakumei takes on the form of a longbow, however this longbow has no bowstring to be pulled or arrows to be notched, consisting mostly of the shaft of the bow alone. The bowstring appears as if made of red spiritual energy, a line of pure red light that when pulled back generates a mass of red spiritual energy which can then be loosed like a real arrow, only traveling much faster and with much greater force behind it. These so called 'arrows' have no pointed tip, instead resembling bolts of molten metal rather then arrows. The bow is worn horizontally from the small of her back when not in use. She gains no additional techniques from the release of her Zanpakuto, however her movement speed and reiatsu control increase even further, as does her visual perception and reaction time.
Release Command Phrase – Hakumei~ (said softly and gently)
Appearance – Same as Zanpakuto Spirit's Longbow (See above)
Abilities – As with the release of her Zanpakuto's Shikai, her Bankai grants her no new unique techniques, however the bolts fired now travel even faster and with greater accuracy, curving through the air to home in on faster moving opponents. In Bankai her Kido abilities increase even further, increasing the power and level of control over her Kido and reiatsu.
Release Command - Bankai~
Kidō: Sakuya is very highly skilled in the use of Kido and is able to perform a great many techniques with impressive speed and power. The only person known to have superior ability to her in the arts of Kido is Madanryu Kimishima, the Commander of the Kido Corps and a man for whom she has a great deal of respect and admiration. Sakuya is able to use Kido abilities up to level 90.
Kido Name – Red Lightning Burst
Kido Type - Hado
Kido Rank - 74
Kido Ability – A Kido reminiscent to that of Byakurai, Pale Lightning, however it is deep red in coloration and has far more destructive power, thus denoted by its high rank. A simple but effective attack which works well at both medium and short range and is very penetrative and damaging, far more so then the technique upon which it is based. This is attack is extremely damaging at point blank range where its power is most concentrated.
Kido Name – Dancing Sakura Prison
Kido Type - Hado
Kido Rank - 83
Kido Ability – Two huge vortex's of spiritual energy resembling huge tornado's strike into the opponent from opposite directions, creating not only a huge crushing force but also a lethal shearing force that tears the enemy to shreds if it doesn't crush them first. Opponents that are strong enough to prevent either will still find themselves trapped within the attack for its duration. The name is derived from the color of the glow radiated by the two spiritual tornado's.

Dont bankai's usually have custom names and release commands? Yours is the exact opposite of Rose's which is WAYY too long.
Isn't Gothpuppy's character trying out for Captain of Squad 3, as like a subplot? Because mine and Glitchybugger's captains are interviewing his character for.

Poor Syn, I suddenly feel like I've kicked a puppy or something~
Rough measurements of power:

, = Latter is very slightly weaker than the former.
1. Soul King/Demon King.
2. Chaplain Knights/Cero/Captain Commander/Signifigant Leaders(Vizard, Quincy, etc), Primera, Segunda, Tercero, Cuarto.
3. Quinto, Sexto, Septimo.
4. Octavo/Captains/Vizards(All), Noveno, Decimo, Lieutenants/Quincy/Humans/Other.
I believe this is fair.
