Hey guys, for those who aren't on the discord, I've caught a particularly bad flu and as a result I've been confined to my bed. If I'm not able to make a post tomorrow I'll try find an alternative, sorry for the wait.

Done, also added added inner world and spirit pictures.
Yamimaru Okasawa / / Shiroi Umō (White Feather)
Name: Yamimaru Okasawa normally called by Yami.
Age: 22 years old (Visible age) - True Age 32
Personality: Yami isn't the most talkative person, not that he is shy, he just prefers to keep his ideas to himself, though he will speak up if he thinks that something is wrong or not the way that he thinks it's right. He spends most of his time reading fantasy books that he brings from Earth each time he goes there on a mission. Other that that he likes to be outside and have walks in the the forest.
While in battle his personality shifts, one can see the enjoyment in his face while fighting, his eyes "change" to a predatory look and his body takes a steady stance opposite to the more "chilled" one he normally walks around.
Former Life and Biography: Back when he was human Yami lived in Japan, nothing about his life was out of the ordinary, he lived alone, and grew up in an orphanage never knowing who his parents was. One day he died. He does not remember how, but the last thing he saw was a bright red-ish light coming from underneath his bedroom door.
When he "woke up" in the soul society it took him a few years to understand what was going on and what was his place in this new world. He wandered from town to town, learning about the new world he was living now. A few years past until he decided that he wanted to become a shinigami, this decision came with no apparent reason, he just felt that it was what he was meant to do. So he joined the academy.
During his training years Yami was never really skilled in Zanjutsu, but he balanced his weakness by being really good with Kidō and Hohō.
A few years after joining the Gotei 13,during a mission hunting a group of Hollows that were attacking a small village in the outskirts of Soul Society, Yami got separated from his group, and found himself surrounded by three Hollows, in that moment, while cornered, Yami heard a voice coming from his sword. It said a name and Yami called for it. His Zanpakuto turned into a bow, and using his Shikai powers he managed to defeat two hollows. The third one was bigger and stronger but after defeating the first two Yami's captain showed up and with a movement of his sword he destroyed the last hollow.
Afraid of prejudice of his weapon look Yami was speechless towards the Captain, but without saying a word the Captain gave him a nod of acceptance and Yami dispelled his Shikai.
Out of gratitude Yami now wishes to climb up in ranks in order to serve his Captain as best as he can.
Zanpakuto - Shiroi Umō (White Feather): In it's sealed form it looks like a normal katana with a white circular guard. When the Shikai is released chanting the wordsit takes the form of two small daggers that Yami can use normally but also trow and make them spin in the air. After trowing the daggers Yami can make change course in mid air and also make them come back to his hands.
Abilities: Not being skilled in sword fighting Yami compensates with the use of Kido, he is able to cast 60s spells without chanting. Not being a master in Shunpo he can still move really fast as well as being able to air step.
Weaknesses: Yami's greatest strength is also his weakness. Afraid of prejudice by others for it's resemblance with a quincy bow, Yami never releases his Shikai true form, restraining him from using it's true power. Only when alone and if the situation really calls for it will Yami chant the wordsmaking his Zanpakutō assume it's true released form.
In it's true shikai form, the Zanpakutō takes the form of a bow from which Yami can shoot arrows at great speed. The arrows are summoned using Yami's reiatsu and are surrounded by high speed winds. Yami can control the winds in two ways: make them have high speed and piercing capacity or make them able to push the enemy hit with blunt force. The only person in the Gotei 13 to know about his shikai true form his his Division Captain.
Theme: TO BE ADDED SOON
Here's my mostly complete CS. I'm only missing the Former life which I'll post laterS A Y U R I T A K A S H I
Age: 220 Appears to be 18
Appearance: Sayuri stands at 6' with dark violet eyes and a black waist-length hair worn in a low thin ponytail. From her training she's gained a lithe muscular build. Her Shihakusho is sleeveless and she wears white cloth bandages wrapped around her palms and forearms. Underneath the bandages she sports numerous scars crossing the backs of her hand and forearms. There is also a large X shaped scar across her back from when she was alive which she has kept hidden from all but a couple people. She also wears a necklace with a dark red dragon head shaped pendant at all times.
Personality: Sayuri acts like a generally friendly and laid back person who is never afraid to talk to anyone or offer a helping hand. Though this is just an act she puts on to hide the fact that she is actually incredibly apathetic towards pretty much everything but her own interests. Especially when it comes to other people, though there are a handful of exceptions. She is also known for never dropping her guard even around allies. She is kind of a battle maniac loving combat in all forms though it is especially true when it is an actual fight with real risk involved. Her favorite animal is cats and she absolutely loathes dogs and onions.
Biography: When Sayuri first arrived in the soul society she arrived in the 52nd south rukon district and was quickly joined a small family of 4 other girls of varying ages. While living with them she generally stayed home keeping an eye on the youngest two while the other two worked to earn their food and housing. Life went extremely well for her for the next 50 years until a large fire swept across the area where she lived killing all but for the eldest of her adopted sisters who was injured and unable to work. Fairly soon after that she marched off to get herself hired for any work she could in of the higher districts in order to pay for herself and her sister. She found herself working for a wealthy merchant. Not much of note happened over the next hundred and sixty five years. That's when she decided to become a Soul Reaper as she began to feel listless and was looking for trouble more and more as a result. She trained herself for the next 2 years in order to apply and was accepted on her first attempt.
Once at the academy she made a near instant impression on the staff and most of the other student due to her speed at picking up everything that was taught. While there she made very few friends as she was never really interested in others and was soon left alone by most people to do her own thing. One notable exception was a girl named Irene who just wouldn't leave her alone. Over the next two years they became incredibly close friends despite the fact that Sayuri was moving along faster than the other students. During a training session in the world of the living during her second year an accident happened leaving a number of her class injured including Irene and herself. While the cause was never publicly it encouraged Sayuri to get stronger and she pushed herself after she healed graduating a year later. She was quickly assigned to Squad 7 as an unseated officer despite her early graduation which was mostly attributed to her personality. Over the next several years she worked hard and quickly attained her Zanpakuto. The rest of the time up to the present she has spent training and going on any mission she was sent on along with supporting her sister whenever she could.
She generally looks like a large black dragon
Her Zanpakuto is a generally abrasive and blunt spirit that never hiding her thoughts. She is also very critical of her weilders actions always capable of finding fault in her actions. Despite that however she is steadfast loyal to her wielder and does her best to support her.
Zanpakutō Inner World
It looks like a rocky craig
Sealed Zanpakutō Appearance
It's sealed form looks like a pair of katanas designed like this with longer than average blades.
“Spread your Wings”
The Shikai takes the form of a set of black gauntlets and greaves. The gauntlets cover her entire arms from the elbow down with overlapping plates along the back of her arm and clawed fingers. The greaves have a similar asthetic.
Her Shikai's main ability is to allow her to create and manipulate flames with her gauntlets. At current she rarely uses this ability as she has a difficult time controlling the amount of flames and how finely she can control it. This leaves her only able to do large area sweeping attacks with her flames without the ability to do precision attacks.
- Skilled with Zanjutsu and Hakuda
- Naturally gifted with Hohō
- Highly intelligent and shrewd
- Powerful Reishi
Weaknesses: Sayuri has a couple major weeknesses. The first is the fact that she can't use her shikai's flames to full effect as she can't control them well making them fairly useless at long range. Her other major weakness is that she is a major glass canon. She is strong and quick but doesn't take blows well which forces her to dodge more often though she can hold her own in a contest of strength.
Other: She is known for being an amazing chef capable of cooking any kind of food.
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.
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.
