C H A R A C T E R N A M E / Z A N P A K U T O N A M E
Juliet stands 5'1, and weighs 112 lbs. Her hair is naturally razor straight and goes down to her lower back.
Juliet, upon first greetings comes off as an extroverted individual whose quick to become friends with anyone she comes across, and even quicker to let things go and forgive all wrongs. She appears to naturally be able to project an easy-going nature which seems to say in bright neon letters "relax, you are in good company." However, this is really just a costume she's created. In reality, Juliet is a very introverted individual who enjoys her solitude, and has a very hard time letting go of the majority of slights against her. The reason why she wears her 'masks' is because she's found it to be the easiest way to deal with life in a society.
That is not to say that Juliet hates everything about living in a world covered with humans (in one form or another) as she's a big fan of a lot of the popular media, especially film, and literature, or anything involving a good story. She's also a fan of video games, and puzzles of every shape and variety. Possibly the greatest surprise, at least to those who know who Juliet is under all the masks, is that she's truly a fan of multiplayer games as she loves to test her intelligence against others, especially if the others in question were responsible for some insult in the past. The only thing Juliet enjoys more than absorbing media, or playing games is creating her own. She's an advent writer, constantly creating stories of various length and type, which she hopes to someday publish, and possibly made into a movie. Although, the actually quality of the stories has been questionable as Juliet, though an imaginative and capable writer, doesn't exactly possess competent editing skills. Though, she will admit they're maybe a little bit better than her Zanjutsu abilities, but not by much.
Juliet is a very proud individual who'd rather pretend her short comings didn't exist, all of which tend to focus on the physical side. Therefore, as a way to protect her pride, she tends to favor using her mental abilities almost completely. This has led her to excel at debating, strategy, philosophy, literature, sociology, physics, history, critical thinking and problem solving, as well as just amassing a mountain of useless facts. While she tends to do terribly at nearly anything having to do with her physical body.
In her youth, Juliet's temper and feeling of superiority constantly got her into trouble. She was either leading children into situations they had no right being in, or somehow turning the others against her thanks to a miscalculation in her part. Which was all fine and good until one day she talked several of her friends to try and capture a hollow which was supposedly spotted within a lawless district. The good news was it wasn't a hollow. The bad news is it was a rogue shinigami and just as dangerous as any hollow. Juliet was able to buy some time, distracting their opponent but not much. In the end, she found herself alone (all her friends being smart enough to run away) and at the end of a blade. If not for pure dumb luck, Juliet and her friend would've all been killed. Thankfully, a team of shinigamis were able to get to them in time. Which the leader, after a long hard scolding, talked Juliet into trying to enter the shinigami academy, which she did.
Juliet flourished in the academy, at least for most parts. Her brilliant mind quickly helped her rise to the top of her class, or would've if not for her failure at Zanjustu and hand to hand combat. HOwever, her physical skills were so bad, after everything was tallied up, she ended up finding herself with the grades of an average student.
Former Life: In her previous life Juliet lived alone with her grandfather, who was nice most of the times, but was a mean drunk. He died when she was very young and so she bounced around foster care for some time before finally becoming eighteen and setting off on her own. She died after starving in some large woods because she was certain she could make it out on her own and didn't need to resort to calling for help.
【Zanpakutō】Zanpakutō Name: Anansi Shiro inku no(of the white ink)
Anansi is much more laid back and easy going than Juliet. He enjoys many of the same things she does, but he loves them simply for the entertainment they possess, never as a means of proving ones superiority over others. He's constantly teasing Juliet and playing tiny pranks on her.
Zanpakutō Inner World
Sealed Zanpakutō Appearance
Release Command Spin your web
Appearance Anansi's shikai form takes the form of a small, metallic spider that's about an inch in diameter.
Note-Anansi's shape and size changes as its shikai form grows in size.
Anansi's primary ability is that as its active in its shikai form, it grows larger and gains more abilities as it takes on new forms. Though, currently Juliet isn't capable of producing spiritual power that's sufficient to allow the spider to reach higher forms.
In its current state it has access to
-extremely durable exoskeleton
-A venom that can quickly cause paralysis, and if Anansi is on the user's hands, can be used to add a paralyzing effect to her kido.
The biggest drawback to Anansi's released form is that it is constantly consuming Juliet's spiritual pressure. The higher its stage, the more power it'll draw, thus lowering her overall effectiveness with kido. At its base form it draws about 20% of Juliet's energy output.
Abilities: Juliet is an expert at Kido, easily capable of spells level fifty or lower without the need for the incantation. She's also halfway decent at shunpo. However, her real strengths aren't her physical abilities, but her mental faculties, which on all counts, should never be underestimated.
Weaknesses: Juliet has basically no skills in zanjutsu or hakuda. Her zanpakuto starts off relatively weak with limited abilities and constantly limits what she's capable of in terms of kido, which is her specialty.
Theme: I'll think of this later
Other: Juliet prefers to keep her zanpakuto in its released state as its one less thing to have to carry around.
This sheet is alright. However a few things need to be fixed. Firstly, the formatting on the sheet is wrong so if you could do me a favour and fix it or delete the components you're not using, that'd be a hand. Second thing that needs to be addressed is the spider paralysis. Whilst not inherently overpowered, it needs definition to how long it takes to activate and what said paralysis does to the body. More definition here if possible please. Thirdly, I'd like to see more backstory, maybe some specific events from her past that you could bring up in order to help define her character further.
Fix up these things and we'll be good to go.
N A O K O - Y A M A Z A K I
Name: Naoko Yamazaki
Age: Visible age: 19; Actual age: 223
Personality: There is a sort of regal permanence to Naoko's demeanor which is noted as something of a change compared to her previous life where she was much more humble and modest. Naoko strives to present herself as upstanding and dependable person but on the flip-side of her convincing herself that she is a model Shinigami, she often holds others with contempt especially if they seem like the type to be Naoko's opposite. The result of this is that she often times has trouble establishing deeper companionship with others as she can be very critical of another's actions while also being vocally opposed to others being critical of her. Naoko has a high ambition and a strong sense of perseverance that often times leads to further complications with others, mainly through her aggressive and assertive nature.
Of course through all of that, hints of Naoko's former attitude exist. She remains rather lonely, often the product of accidentally pushing others away from stubbornness and although sometimes difficult, it feels natural to be by herself. There is also still a quiet appreciation of art and any expression of that in others is likely to draw her attention and admiration, and surprisingly, even if it is bad, she can still find the attempt endearing.
Former Life: A Tokyo native in the modern era, Naoko had previously and will always have an attachment to art and she was rather remarkable at all kinds of fine arts. Even at a young age, her imagination being brought to the canvas had often captivated others. She was often recognized officially by committees and competitions and had won many awards in her teenage years. Many believed she was destined to have a bright future ahead of herself with her magnificent talent. Tragically in her early adulthood she died unexpectedly in fashion that had left many to wonder whether she had killed herself, had fallen victim to chance, or something more malicious was committed against her. She died in a car accident when her vehicle went off the road.
Biography: Following Naoko's first death, her soul would pass onto to the next life. From there, Naoko did what felt natural and continued to illustrate and paint to make a living in this new life. Unfortunately due to the rather barbaric conditions of the poorer outskirts, namely Rukongai District 85, there wasn't a lot of interest. Of course it wasn't exactly the fault of the district population. Naoko's artistic talent had left her, cursed by the feeling of crippled fingers. She could barely write her name. At first she suspected it was some weird carry-over effect from her car accident but even if that was the case, she quickly despaired thinking she was doomed to some miserable existence in this life for some reason or another.
Existence in the outer district was a lonely affair, with Naoko's closed, peaceful nature not awarding her with many companions in this new and tough rugged world. Unsure of how things worked, she refused any offer of adoption, clinging to the idea that maybe her parents could find her, leaving her on her own.
However there was one that offered the crippled artist companionship but not only that, he offered her protection and even encouragement. A rough and ferocious man that appeared around her age. It was through this relationship that the timid Naoko managed to build some backbone and some fire to match this depraved district. More importantly, he helped Naoko battle through her crippled finger conditions by challenging her to push through that feeling of being crippled. Surprisingly, she was starting to find the ability to push through it and as a consequence, her Reiryoku and Reishi began to build from the sheer willpower.
As time passed, she grew alongside her friend as he fought in pit fights and she tagged along, often times painting portraits of his exploits in practice. Eventually they were only phantoms to the rest of the souls and began to wander the Soul Society until they found their next purpose in life. The Shinigami offered something to both of them, him a way to fight and prove himself and her, the familiarity of higher society and reprieve from disparity, but also a since of greater purpose. The two joined the Shinigami Academy and eventually passed, using each other as a strong motivator to advance.
Owari no Subete, Uchūjin (End of All, Space Alien)Self-described as the "Broken Lord", Uchūjin appears to be some sort of vapor possessing a suit of advanced armor supplemented by elaborately embroidered cloth. It is twice the size of Naoko with all of its armor on. Its voice is described as a echo and despite sounding low and intimating, Naoko believes that Uchūjin is quite gentle but seemingly sad and lonely.
Uchūjin's world is something that always reminded Naoko of the western castles on earth but with more gloom to it. Dark clouds blot out the sun and the only lights are the faint blue lanterns that glow in the buildings and the grand glowing pillar setting at the top of the castle. The design of the futuristic device emitting the light looks strangely out of place in this sort of medieval looking world.Sealed, Uchūjin appears like an regular katana with the exception of a pommel that has an elaborately detailed carving of jeweled-eyed hawk. Unsealed, Uchūjin appears like something otherworldly. The material of the hilt, pommel, and guard are all made of metal with the hawk symbol reappearing. The blade has a slight curve emerging from a hawk's mouth. The metal composition of its pieces are considered an unknown alloy for all parts with the blade having the only unique property. The blade emits a strange cosmic-like vapor where many compare it to seeing the night sky when Naoko channels her Reiatsu to her Zanpakuto. The vapor appears to consume the blade as careful study showed that small sections of the blade would evaporate away. However, the vapor quickly dissipates and the blade regenerates. Naoko believes that even though she has not discovered the full potential of her Shikai, she may be close to a potential breakthrough.
Abilities: Her greatest strength is a near-adept level of skill with Kido with a stronger understanding of Bakudo over Hado. Her Kaido is right at the level that is expected of a seated officer of the 4th Division. Otherwise, Naoko is surprisingly quick witted, inventive, and clever which lends itself more often than what people give credit for. Fairly surprising Reiatsu levels and durability, too.
Weaknesses: The rest of Naoko's abilities leave a lot to be desired. Her Zanjutsu is maybe average at best but falls below average when considering the Shinigami in total. Her Hoho and by extension, Hakuda, talents are lacking with recorded academy performances that placed her in the lower 30% of class.
Theme: (I guess you can throw this in here if you want. It's optional but it gives flavor.)
Other: (Anything that my unnecessarily long sheet didn’t cover? Write it here!)
This character sheet is good and accepted. Feel free to post it in the character tab.
