Appearance


Emi is a young woman in her early 20s. She’s fairly tall, standing at around 5’10” and had a fairly slender build. She has black shoulder length hair. She had bright blue eyes and a birth mark that almost looks like a spider on the lower edge of her left cheek near her jawline. Sitting just beneath the opposite eye is a black mark that could be best described as a blade.

She wears the standard Shinigami attire, however keeps the top half of her uniform around her waist, exposing the upper half of her body. To avoid being totally bare however, she covers her somewhat small breasts in a set of black bandages. Aside from that she wears her zanpakutou on her back, rather than at the waist as most others do.

Personality


First and foremost, Emi is incredibly stubborn. The concept of giving up simply isn’t an option with her. Even if she must relent for a moment, her goals and her way ever remain at the forefront of her thoughts. As such, her insistence on reaching her goals can only ever be delayed. Aside from that, Emi aims to keep a positive attitudes, even despite past tragedies, Emi usually comes off as cherry and is willing to at least fake it if that means making them seem a lot better than what they actually are. Finally, Emi is compassionate has has a strong sense of justice. She’s quick to sympathize with those in need or suffering in any way, as well as committing herself to doing what’s right as much as humanly possible. As a result however, her strong sense of justice can and often does lead her to obsess about doing what’s right at the end of the day.

When unseen or far enough away from the judgement of her comrades, Emi adopts a more laid back personality. Apparently, much of her outward behavior is a farce she puts on to disguise her real identity, which comes completely with a heavy accent. Going beyond that is a secret she’s devoted her entire life to following the Seventh’s mysterious closure, which is her almost fetishized appreciation for cruelty and killing.

Finally, going beyond her simple lust for killing is something far worse. While Emi appears to find unnatural pleasure in killimg, in times of great emotional distress or anguish something much darker takes over. This thing, alters her entire being. Rather than finding joy in killing and cruelty, this darker side of Emi takes to either subject devoid entirely of either emotion. Instead it acts a a means of asserting superiority or as a means to psychological destroy unfortunate victims. Despite that, this thing is best likened to a force of nature. It destroys simply because it has the power to do so. There is no reason, no thought, no feeling behind it. Death and chaos are simply the consequences of its existence.

History


A dark and terrible reiatsu is somehow obscuring the contents of this file surrounding this point.

One who calls upon the ocean never expects the tsunami.
For beckoning the rains, also tempts the hurricane.
When simple kindling begs the wildfire,
A furious inferno to devour the lands.
And to say a prayer is to provoke the wrath of God.
Know ye not your foolishness?

Shikai Appearence: In it’s shikai state, Reijin becomes a much more ornate. The blade itself become white, with a golden stripe running the tip down the middle of the blade to the hilt. The guard transforms and resembles a blossoming lotus flower.

Shikai Description: Reijin is an old spirit with an incredible fondness for tradition and fundamentals. The old spirit of the blade holds such discipline in high reverence. This discipline comes in the form of eight stances called Shisei. These stances are divided into two categories: The Unbiased and The Primordial. When techniques are executed from either type of stance, Reijin's power resonates and forms harmony with the soul of Blademaster and allows the full potential of the the blade to be realized. When blade resonance occurs, various marks known as Sen (閃, flash) appear on the blade.

The Primordial Stances are as follows:
  • Harapekodatta Kouen Shisei (腹ペコだったな紅炎の姿勢, Starved Red Flame Stance): In this stance, the left foot is placed forward, and the sword is held pointing upright with the hilt in front of the right shoulder. The blade slopes slightly to the rear. This stance is derived from the Hassou stance, and is the most flexible and destructive stance as it allows one to easily strike from any direction.

  • Shinsetsu Ryuuka Shisei (親切な流下の姿勢, Gentle Downstream Stance): In this stance, the In this stance, the left foot is placed slightly behind the right with the left heel slightly raised, with feet held parallel. The hips are straight forward and shoulders are relaxed, with the back lined up perpendicular to the floor at all times. The blade is held pointed at an opponent’s throat level. The center of gravity is focused between both feet to created a stance of equal defensive and offensive potential, derived from the Seigan stance.

  • Katai Daichi Shisei (硬い大地の姿勢, Solid Earth Stance): In this stance, the left foot is placed slightly behind the right with the left heel slightly raised, with feet held parallel. The hips are straight forward and shoulders are relaxed, with the back lined up perpendicular to the floor at all times. The blade is held pointed at an opponent’s eye level.

  • Shoutotsu Denkou Shisei (衝突電光の姿勢, Impact Lightning Stance): In this stance, the left foot is placed a fair distance in front of the right with with both feet angled to be nearly parallel to mimic a horse stance. The knees bent slightly to lower the center of gravity, while the blade is held near the top of the head and perpendicular to the body. This stance is derived from the Ko Gasumi stance often used in Ninjutsu. This stance favors parrying capability, as well as being able to make quick thrusts and slashes.
    • Techniques executed from this stance creates the Shoutotsu Denkou Sen (衝突電光の閃). It looks like a lightning bolt.
The Unbiased Stances are as follows:
  • Gyouten Shisei (暁天の姿勢, Dawn Sky Stance): In this stance, the user stands with their left foot is forward, with the sword held pointing upright. The hilt is positioned just in front of the right shoulder, and the blade should leaning slightly to the behind the user’s head.

  • Shinten Shisei (震天の姿勢, Quaking Heaven Stance): In this stance, the sword held raised above the head with the tip pointing back while the blade faces skywars. This stance is derived from the Joudan stance and serves as the more aggressive of the three stances.
    • Techniques executed from this stance creates the Shinten Sen (震天の閃). It looks like a tomoe.
  • Muten Shisei (無天の姿勢, No Sky Stance): A stance separate from the other three. Muten Shisei in essence has no defined form, or refers to any stance not recognized by Reijin.
    • Techniques done from in this stance creates the Muten Sen (無天の閃), which takes the form of an X.

Ability: Hissatsu Ken: Suimei (必殺剣•水明, Certain Death Blade: Shimmering Water)
Element: None
Type: Active.
Descriptions: An attack designed for the sole purpose of cutting an enemy down at close range (2m). As a result of any of the user’s slashing attacks done while calling out the word “Suimei”, a trail of hundreds of smaller slashing blades known as hakaze (刃風, blade wind) is formed. Upon manifestation, the mass of small blades appears like sunlight reflecting off gentle waters.
  • From Gyouten Shisei: The Hakaze covers a wide (20m) conical area.
    • The concentration of Hakaze becomes much lesser as it moves from the point of execution, making it much less effective as it travels. Conversely, the concentration is much higher at close range thus making the potential to do harm much greater.
  • From Yaten Shisei: Rather than flowing from Reijin, the Hakaze manifests upward from the ground beneath the opponent when the user thrusts forward, from the air behind the opponent with an upward slash, and from the air on the opposite side when slashing from either the left or right.
    • In either case, the opponent must be within striking distance of the user.
  • From Shinten Shisei:The Hakaze flows down from above the user and opponent almost like a rain of blades in a 2m radius. From this stance the blades are concentrated in a tighter area, making their potential to do harm significantly greater.
    • Use of this technique from this stance also poses some risk to the user as well.
  • From Muten Shisei: The hakaze flows from Reijin at half the normal distance, but manifests around the target before closing in on them.
  • From Harapekodatta Kouen Shisei: The command become “Kouen Suimei”, and the hakaze flows along the length of the blade, giving it a serrated edge and bolstering it’s cutting potential.
  • From Shinsetsu Ryuuka Shisei: The command becomes “Ryuuka Suimei”, and the hakaze coalesces and flows from above the user and target and falls down to ground like rain.
  • From Katai Daichi Shisei: The command becomes, “Daichi Suimei”, and the hakaze flows from the blade and then condenses to form a tight ball that will explode upon contact.
  • From Shoutotsu Denkou Shisei: The command becomes “Shoutotsu Suimei”, and the Hakaze flows around the blade. It can then be released, sending a tightly woven cyclone of blades in order to extend the user’s slashing range by 10m. Or, The hakaze can be held round the blade, allowing the hakaze a chance to rip through anything it makes contact with, bolstering the destructive potential of attacks.
Ability: Hissatsu Ken: Anbu Zangeki (必殺剣•暗部斬撃, Certain Death Blade: Dark side slashing)
Element: None
Type: Active

  • From Muten Shisei: Allows the user to more permanently summon one or more phantom hands which the user can control up to 2m.
    • Using from this stance costs one Sen for each hand created.
    • Using this technique from Muten Shisei will not generate the Muten Sen.
    • No more than six hands can be created.
    • The hands may all assume their own Stances separate from that of the user’s stance and perform techniques from the user.
      • In which case the associated effects will still all be created to a lesser extent as described elsewhere.
    • Techniques executed by Muten Hands will still generate Sen.
  • When used from primordial stances, the hands produce ninja tools.
  • From Harapekodatta Kouen Shisei: From the stance, six shadow hands appear and throw up to three shuriken each. The number of shuriken each hand throws can be increased in multiples of three by using Sen.
  • From Shinsetsu Ryuuka Shisei: From this stance, a shadow hand appears and wields a kusarigama. The hand will then rush at the target to slash at them over a 5m distance, or make use of the chains. The chains can either bind targets, or in increase the range of the attack by 10m.

    • The direction in which the ephemeral blade’s Hakaze flows is dependent on the stance used and the direction of the attack (where applicable).
  • This skill can also be used with Chikyuu Zangeki.
    • In this case the command becomes “Anbu Nikushimi”.
    • The effects of the emphemeral blade’s uheaval are dependent on the stance used.

Ability: Hissatsu Ken: Chikyuu no Nikushimi Zangeki (必殺剣•地球斬撃の憎しみ, Certain Death Blade: Hatred of Earth Slash)
Element: None
Type: Active
Descriptions: After gaining Sen, the user draws on the full power of the blade. Making use of this power, they cut into or at the earth while calling “Chikyuu Zangeki” to cause an upheaval. Upon upheaval, it appears as if a dragon sleeping beneath the earth is awakening with righteous fury.
  • From Gyouten Shisei: By cutting into the earth from this stance, the user causes a numerous small shards of sharp stone (or whatever other material) to fly forward at the opponent. The more strength driven into the attack the further and faster the debris moves.
    • Only usable after gaining the Gyouten Sen.
    • The effective range is 25m.
    • The number of stones flung forward is 250.
  • From Yaten Shisei: By cutting into the earth from this stance, the user either directs dust and debris into the targets eyes, or creates a large cloud of dust around themselves.
    • Only usable after gaining the Yaten Sen.
    • The dust cloud covers an 8m radius.
  • From Shinten Shisei: By directing the power of the blade at the earth from this powerful stance, the user causes six large chunks to rise up in all directions covering a 5m radius. These large portions of upturned earth can be used as cover, or can strike opponents from below, sending them backwards or upwards.

  • From Shinsetsu Ryuuka Shisei: By directing the power of the blade at the earth from this balanced stance, combines the capabilities of Gyouten and Shinten Shisei’s effects, albeit at a lesser extent. This cause causes a large chunk to rise in front of the user This portion of upturned earth can be used as cover, or can strike opponents from below, sending them backwards or upwards. Additionally, smaller bits sharp of rock will be sent upwards before falling back towards the ground in a light rain.
  • From Katai Daichi Shisei: By directing the power of the blade at the earth from this balanced stance, combines the capabilities of Harapekodatta Kouen and Shinten Shisei’s effects, albeit at a lesser extent. This cause causes a large chunk of spiked rock to rise in front of the user This portion of upturned earth can be used as cover, or can strike opponents from below, sending them backwards or upwards while also potentially piercing them in the process.
  • From Shoutotsu Denkou Shisei: By directing the power of the blade forward above the earth, the user causes it to fracture and creates a small fissure (10m). This can be used to disrupt an opponent’s footing, or prevent direct access to to the target.
  • No direct contact needs to be made to trigger the effects. The force from the swing is sufficient enough to produce the effect.
  • Requires at least one Sen to use, however Sen is not consumed upon use if used from the Unbiased Stances.
  • When used from Primodial stances, this ability requires at least two Sen, and will cost two Sen.
Ability: Bushi no Haiku (武士の俳句, Samurai’s Haiku)
Element: None
Type: Passive
Description: After gaining Sen, the user draws on the true power of the blade by consuming it and increasing the strength of their voice. In response to the user’s strengthened voice, Reijin works harder and the potential any techniques used thereafter is increased. However doing so results in dissonance, thus preventing additional resonance for a short time. Additionally the use of this power strains the user’s voice, preventing them from using it for a short period of time. As such, techniques requiring their name to be called, including Kidou, cannot be used during this time.

However, this power can be used to a lesser extent and without having to lose one’s voice, by amplifying the sound of one’s whispers. The effects produced are the same, but not as potent. Whispered verses require one, two, and three seen respectively and will enhance the effects by one, two, and three quarters of their original effects accordingly.
  • Daiichi no Inbun (第一の韻文, First Verse):
    Flowers bloom in spring.
    • Doubles the range, the potency, and all other associated effects all techniques.
      • Consumes four Sen.
      • Prevents the creation of new Sen for 2 posts.
      • Use of the first verse silences the user, preventing the use of any ability requiring its name to be called including Kidou for 1 post.
      • When used as a “whispered verse” this ability costs one sen, and increases the potency of associated effects by 25%.
  • Daini no Inbun (第二の韻文, Second Verse):
    Bushi draw their blades and weep.
    • Triples the range, the potency, and all other associated effects all techniques.
    • Consumes six Sen.
    • Prevents the creation of new Sen for 3 posts.
    • Use of this verse silences the user, preventing the use of any ability requiring its name to be called including Kidou for 2 posts.
    • When used as a “whispered verse” this ability costs two sen, and increases the potency of associated effects by 50%.
  • Daisan no Inbun (第三の韻文, Third Verse):
    For blood taints the earth.
    • Quadruples the range, potency, and all other associated effects all techniques.
    • Consumes eight Sen.
    • Prevents creation of new Sen for 4 posts.
    • Also silences the user, preventing them from using any technique requiring a name to be called including Kidou for 3 posts.
    • Bankai cannot be activated during the silence period.
    • When used as a “whispered verse” this ability costs 3 sen, and increases the potency of associated effects by 75%.
    Bankai:


    Name: Tenka Reijin (天下霊刃, Peerless Spirit Blade).
    Appearance: Tenka Reijin takes the form of an old rusted version of its Shikai appearance, until Soul Harmonization takes effect. In which case case the Katana is restored to peak condition. Furthermore Emi’s attire transforms to match the status and renown of the Souls she harmonizes with. Finally, Emi adorns a neckless holding any number of ceremonial coins around her point.

    Bankai Description: After assuming it’s Bankai form, Tenka Reijin becomes a blade of paying respects to the dead. In this form, any collected Sen now become coins which are used to pay tribute to those who’ve passed. In return, Emi is possessed by the spirits to whom respects were paid and is imbued with the strength of their soul. Upon possession, Emi adopts the philosophies of those souls, which not only fundamentally alters her approach to battle, but also the principles behind each and every one of her attacks.

    In total there are four souls: Shininobi, Daimyou, Shogun, and Emperor. Each soul has its own unique combat personality and mindset on the battle field, as well as the tools best suited for it. This allows for incredible versatility that is grounded in fundamental blade work, holding true to Reijin’s beliefs surrounding tradition.

    Despite the change Tenka Reijin is still bound by some of the same use of Sen in order to draw out its true potential as Shikai is. However, the form Sen takes is now vastly different. Instead of appearing as sigils upon the blade, Sen now takes the form of old ceremonial coins. These coins must be offered in order to make use of any of Tenka Reijin’s abilities. When there is no payment left to offer, Tenka Reijin sealed once more.
    • Upon entering assuming Bankai form, any Sen left unused from Shikai becomes equal its amount in coins. Ex: If there are 6 Sen, there will be 6 coins upon entering Bankai.
    • There is one exception to this. Should Bankai be awakened with all 8 Sen remaining, and if “Bushi no Haiku” was not used at all prior to awakening, the amount of Sen coins the Bankai will receive is 10, otherwise the maximum is 8.
    • All associated Sen costs are paid once per activation of an ability (unless stated otherwise), after which the associated effects are permanent and continuously usable until Bankai is canceled, sealed, or stated otherwise.
    • If all Sen are spent, Tenka Reijin will be sealed and cannot be reawakened for the remainder of the battle.

    Ability: Soul Harmonize I: Shinobi’s Soul
    Type: Active/Passive
    Element: Dark
    Sen Cost: 2
    Description: As a result of paying tribute to Fujibayashi Nagato, Emi becomes possessed by the great shinobi. With this soul Harmonization in effect Emi’s focus becomes that of pure deception and “attacks from the unseen.” Using the blessings of Nagato, Emi becomes able to follow-up each (physical) attack of her choosing with up to four other identical attacks that can originate from almost anywhere and any angle within a 10m radius.
    • Follow-up attacks cannot originate any closer than 1m away from spiritually aware beings.
    • Being identical copies of the original attacks, follow-up attacks maintain the same speed and strength as the original.
    • Emi can delay the follow-up of each attack by up to one post.
      • However if Blade Curse is active, the follow-up attacks can be delayed indefinitely.
      • All Blade Curse effects apply as normal even with the follow-up attacks.
    • Use of this ability cancels the effects of any other active Soul Harmonize.
    Ability: Soul Harmonize II: Blade Curse
    Type: Active/Passive
    Element: Dark
    Sen Cost:1
    Description: By paying tribute to malevolent spirits, Tenka Reijin becomes cursed by their ill will. As a result Tenka Reijin transforms into a youtou, (妖刀, "cursed katana"), and gains the ability to employ that powerful curse in battle. Whenever and wherever Tenkai Reijin strikes, that area becomes “haunted” as a result. This curse allows the effects of that strike, slash, or whatever else to be delayed for as long as Emi desires.
    • Anything cursed will take on a purple glow, clearly indicating that some sort of effect has occurred.
    • All delayed effects will happen as they would normally, however they can occur at a much later time. Ex: An attack that could slice a tree down would still slice that tree down, however Emi could decide for that not to occur until two posts later.
    • When striking the air, an unusual effect occurs where the “slash” becomes stuck and will remain that way until touched or if another area becomes cursed. Anything to touch this “slash” will be cut just as it would normally.
    • Excluding the air, any number of locations can be cursed simultaneously. However cursing anything after the air will result in the air curse being removed.
    • Areas will remain haunted indefinitely until Bankai is sealed, however anything cursed after 5 posts will cost 1 additional Sen for each 5 posts that it remains cursed.
      • Multiple objects will of course cost multiple Sen in order to maintain the curse after 5 posts.
    • This ability can only remain active for 5 posts before payment must be offered again.
      • However, each time this ability is activated, the cost is tripled as a result of the curse becoming harder to maintain.
    • If this ability is activated a 3rd time, on the 4th post after its activation the curse becomes too great and will cause a tremendous backlash.
      • This backlash will cause all previously delayed effects to befall the user.
      • This will however not kill them (if severe enough), instead it will render them completely unable to battle from that point onward, regardless of their fitness prior to this moment.

    Ability: Soul Harmonize III: Daimyou’s Soul
    Type: Active/Passive
    Element: None
    Sen Cost: 4
    Description: By paying tribute to Oda Nobunaga, Emi becomes possessed by the great Daimyou. With this soul Harmonization in effect Emi’s focus becomes that of pure overwhelming force and “attacks that seek to subjugate all resistance.” Using the blessings of Nobunaga, Emi becomes able to effortlessly and precisely channel the full extent of her strength with each (physical) attack of her choosing. This results in wide reaching destructive swings.
    • The destructive force can either be spread out over a wide area, or condensed into a single point.
      • Spreading out the force over a wide area will not reduce the power below that of what Emi is naturally capable.
      • Condensing that force into smaller areas however will drastically intensify the destructive capabilities associated.
        • However condensing an attack comes at the cost of 5 Sen per swing.
        • A second condensed swing will always seal Emi’s Bankai.
    • The range and destructive power in each swing is directly tied to Emi’s strength stat, becoming drastically more destructive as her strength grows.
      • The initial range is 25m.
      • Range at B+ strength is 30m
      • Range at A strength is 35m
      • Range at A+ strength 40m
      • Range at S strength is 45m
      • Range at S+ strength is 50m
    • This can ability be used with Blade Curse.
      • When slashing the air, massive walls of destructive force are left behind.
      • These walls will remain in place indefinitely, or until the curse can no longer be maintained, until they come into contact with something, or Emi is otherwise unable to sustain her Bankai.
    • This destructive force can only be transferred into any given area other than the air (excluding opponents) once.
      • Subsequent strikes generate too much destructive force and will pulverize whatever is struck into a harmless cloud of dust when the effects are allowed to manifest.
    • Use of this ability cancels the effects of any other active Soul Harmonize.

    Ability: Soul Harmonize IV: Shogun’s Soul
    Type: Active/Passive
    Element: None
    Sen Cost: 5
    Description: By paying tribute to Ieyasu Tokugawa, Tenka Reijin becomes possessed by the great Shogun. With this soul Harmonization in effect Emi’s focus becomes that of patience, focus, and “attacks that express the blade’s potential.” Using the blessings of Tokugawa, Tenka Reijin‘s reach and sharpness transcend beyond that of normal blades. This results in a blade where no natural material can resist its edge, and Emi being able to slash foes over extended distances (up to 60m), by projecting her spiritual energy through the blade. However, the blade must be used with extra care when this Harmonization is in effect. As such, it must be sheathed and can only be drawn in order to make an attack.
    • With this Soul Harmonization in effect Emi becomes unable to use the Zanpakutou in any capacity until she attacks. This means the blade cannot even be used for defense.
      • The limitation on being able to use the blade defensively can be waived at the cost of forfeiting 3 Sen.
    • This ability can be used with Blade Curse
    • Use of this ability cancels the effects of any other active Soul Harmonize.

    Ability: Zanpakutou No Jinpou (斬魄刀の神法 , Divine Arts of the Soul-Cutter Sword)
    Element: None
    Type: Passive / Active
    Description: As a result to paying tribute to Reijin directly, Emi becomes able to learn “Divine Techniques”. These arts seek to return one back to their fundamental and from it derive peerless skill. In this case, the pure essence of a Zanpakutou, a tool used to usher souls into the afterlife or a tool to sever the ties binding a spirit to the world of the living, becomes one that inevitably “creates insurmountable distance”.

    At its core, a Zanpakutou when used to expel a spirit from the realm of the living, creates an insurmountable distance between that spirit and the world of the living; separating the spirit from the living world indefinitely. When turned against things not bound to the world of the living this ability exhibits several effects derived from four distinct techniques known as Dan (段, step).
    • Shodan: Asauchi (初段 • 浅打, First Step: Shallow Hit)
      Description: Activated with the conman “Jinpou: Asauchi”, this ability represents the weak bond and distance between zanpakutou and master. This form of the Divine Art expels a massive force that simply creates distance (10m) between the user and and those caught by the force. Furthermore, physical objects that collide with the blade with Asauchi active will be instantly relocated (teleported) 10m away from the point of contact.
      • The effects of this technique can be applied through the use of any of Tenka Reijin’s other abilities.
    • Nidan: Shikai (弐段 • 始解, Initial Release):
      Sen Cost: 1
      Description: Activated with the command ”Jinpou: Shikai”, this ability represents the increasing closeness between Zanpakutou and Master. Standing in contrast to Asauchi, Shikai can force objects and entities within a certain radius (20m) to come closer together by “creating distance between them and the rest of the universe”.
      • The effects of this technique can be applied through the use of any of Tenka Reijin’s other abilities.
      • The effects of this technique can be used in conjunction with any of the other Divine Techniques without additional Sen cost if previously activated.
    • Shindan: Bankai (真段 • 卍解, True Step: Final Release)
      Sen Cost: 3
      Description: Activated with the command “Jinpou: Bankai”, this ability is based on the thought that Bankai is final form of a Zanpakutou. This Divine takes effect of separation to the extreme. Anything unfortunate enough to be successfully cut by Tenkai Reijin using this Divine Art (even if partially) is forcefully separated at the points of incision by a large distance (100m). This rather violent technique is particularly useful in the pursuit of tearing limbs and away from their hosts, as well as cutting passages in otherwise impassable obstacles, by causing forceful separation between two parts of whatever object is in the way.
      • The core of one’s essence is not so easily severed, even by particularly advanced powers such as this. As such, wounds inflicted at the head and core (head to waist) of one’s body are unaffected by Bankai’s effects.
      • Earthly masses such as mountains, and even the earth itself are not so easily severed. While they too can be subjected to the power of this ability, they cannot be separated in their entirety. Instead, the area of its effects are limited to 100m.
      • Upon activation, the effects of this ability remain active for the Bankai’s Duration.
      • The effects of this technique can be applied through the use of any of Tenka Reijin’s other abilities.
      • The effects of this technique can be used in conjunction with any of the other Divine Techniques without additional Sen cost if previously activated.
    • Saishuudan: Shinuchi (最終 • 真打, Final Step: True Hit):
      Sen Cost: 5
      Description: Activated by the command “Jinpou: Shinuchi”, this ability harkens back to a time before Bankai was even named. Perhaps this is the true form and essence of a Zanpakutou. Regardless, this ability creates the ultimate separation. As with Asauchi, Shinuchi also expels a force that creates great distance (20m). However this distance becomes physically insurmountable, effectively becoming a barrier. At that point it is impossible for anything affected by this power to approach the user, or otherwise come within a distance of less than 20m in all directions for a short time (2 posts). Furthermore, physical objects and spiritual manifestations (like cero and Kidou) that collide with the blade while Shinuchi is active will be instantly relocated 20m away from the point of contact and restricted from closing the 20m gap.
      • Upon activation, the effects of this ability to cause separation remain active for the Bankai’s duration.
      • Objects and spiritual manifestations (like cero and Kidou) affected by this power will maintain whatever force, momentum, and energy used to propel them forward and will continually attempt to fly forward at their original target, essentially rendering them suspended in space. Unless destroyed or stopped otherwise, they be forced to maintain a fixed distance of at least 20m at all times until the duration of this effect has expired.
      • Objects and spiritual manifestations affected by this ability once, cannot be affected a second time.
      • Using the effects of “Nidan: Shikai” can be used to create a crushing force that pins targets between the “pull” of Shikai, and the “push” of Shinuchi.
      • Using the effects of “Shindan: Bankai” can be used dispel Shinuchi’s power.
      • The effects of this technique can be applied through the use of any of Tenka Reijin’s other abilities.
      • The effects of this technique can be used in conjunction with any of the other Divine Techniques without additional Sen cost if previously activated.
    Ability: Soul Harmonize V: Emperor’s Soul
    Type: Active/Passive
    Element: Dark
    Sen Cost: 10
    Description: By paying tribute to the legendary Jimmu-Tennou, Emi and Tenka Reijin both become possessed by the great founding Emperor. With this Ultimate Soul Harmonization in effect Emi’s focus becomes that of shaping tremendous change and “commanding the power that forged a nation.” Using the blessings of Jimmu, Tenka Reijin and Emi are able to Harmonize with all other souls simultaneously for a short time.
    • This ability lasts for three posts.
    • All of the effects and rules of previous Soul Harmonize abilities apply here. However there are exceptions.
      • The first is that Tenka Reijin can remain unsheathed with this Harmonization in effect.
      • The second is that that the strength condensing effect from Soul Harmonize III no longer requires Sen. Instead, the duration of this Soul Harmonize is shortened by one post each time the effect is used.
    • As this ability requires all possible Sen this is considered the true and ultimate form of Emi’s Bankai.

    Ethereal Locus


    Zanpakutou: Ethereal Locus — Reijin
    Sealed state appearance: Reijin in its sealed state is a standard Katana with four-pointed star as it’s guard.

    Shikai:

    Name: Reijin (霊刃, Spirit Blade)
    Release Command: Kirisuteru (切り捨てる, cut away)
    Inner World:
    Image
    Spirit Appearance:
    Image
    Shikai Appearence: Upon assuming this Shikai form, Reijin can have one of two appearances. The first is a glowing white blade that radiates with an ethereal energy. The second is an all black blade that emits a foul aura.

    Shikai Description: This form of Reijin harnesses the fundamentals of the Shinigami, specifically their natural ability to act as some sort of usher for souls. By amplifying the Shinigami’s ability to govern the flow of souls, Reijin is able to act as a conduit or “Locus” for pure and malevolent spirits. As a result, Reijin draws in the power and will of those souls in order to significantly bolster its own abilities. This form of Reijin awakens when the user attains all 8 sen, which causes Bushi no Haiku to evolve into Shinigami no Haiku and allows Reijin to assume its “Locus Form”

    Shikai Abilities:

    Ability: Hissatsu Ken: Suimei [Locus Form] (必殺剣•水明, Certain Death Blade: Shimmering Water)
    Element: Dark / Wind
    Type: Active.
    Descriptions: An attack designed for the sole purpose of cutting an enemy down at close range (8m). As a result of any of the user’s slashing attacks done while calling out the word “Suimei”, a trail of hundreds of smaller slashing blades known as hakaze (刃風, blade wind) is formed. Upon manifestation, the mass of small blades appears like sunlight reflecting off gentle waters.
    • Locus Form Suimei allows Emi to use all stance effects of this ability without the need to take a stance beforehand.
    • Suimei’s base range becomes 8m in this form.
    • The concentration of hakaze becomes quadrupled as per the effects of “Bushi no Haiku’s” 3rd verse.
    • Locus Form Suimei causes the blades formed to be enveloped by small yet extremely powerful gusts of wind. These gusts amplify the blade’s cutting power and allows them to drill into people and objects.
    Ability: Hissatsu Ken: Anbu Zangeki [Locus Form] (必殺剣•暗部斬撃, Certain Death Blade: Dark side slashing)
    Element: Dark
    Type: Active
    Description: An attack purely steeped in the art of deception. When the user attacks and calls out “Anbu Zangeki”, a phantom hand appears and quickly draws an ephemeral blade to make its attack. Upon manifestation, appears as if death itself is seeking to claim the life of its victims.
    • Locus Form Anbu Zangeki allows Emi to use all stance effects of this ability without the need to take a stance beforehand.
    • All stance associated ranges and effects become quadruple as per “Bushi no Haiku‘s” 3rd. verse.

    Ability: Hissatsu Ken: Chikyuu no Nikushimi Zangeki [Locus Form] (必殺剣•地球斬撃の憎しみ, Certain Death Blade: Hatred of Earth Slash)
    Element: Dark
    Type: Active
    Descriptions: After gaining Sen, the user draws on the full power of the blade. Making use of this power, they cut into or at the earth while calling “Chikyuu Zangeki” to cause an upheaval. Upon upheaval, it appears as if a dragon sleeping beneath the earth is awakening with righteous fury.
    • Locus Form Chikyuu no Nikushimi Zangeki allows Emi to use all stance effects of this ability without the need to take a stance beforehand.
    • All stance associated ranges and effects become quadruple as per “Bushi no Haiku‘s” 3rd. verse.
    • Locus Form also allows the user to substitute broken up earth for for shadow constructs that are equally as powerful and capable of all the same effects this ability has when used otherwise.
    Ability: Shinigami no Haiku (死神の俳句, Death God’s Haiku)
    Element: None
    Type: Passive
    Description: After gaining all 8 Sen, Bushi no Haiku evolves and becomes Shinigami no Haiku. When active, the user draws a mass of either benevolent or malevolent spirits into their blade. This causes all of Reijin’s abilities to permanently assume their strongest versions, gain elemental affinity, while also eliminating stance requirements for stance effects.
    • This effect can also be activated upon Shikai’s release without the need to acquire 8 Sen.
    • In this case the user temporarily sacrifices their ability to use all non-Zanpakutou spoken abilities such as kidou.
    • In the sacrificial case, the user becomes cursed and loses their voice as they would with Bushi no Haiku.
      • Instead, Reijin speaks on behalf of the user and is able to manifest the power of all other Zanpakutou abilities as normal.
    • This curse remains in effect even when Bankai is activated.

    • Daiichi no Inbun (第一の韻文, First Verse):
      Cloaked in all black.
      • Removes all stance requirements for all stance effects.
    • Daini no Inbun (第二の韻文, Second Verse):
      Shinigami guide the dead.
      • All abilities gain their elemental affinities.
    • Daisan no Inbun (第三の韻文, Third Verse):
      Balance is maintained.
      • Quadruples the range, potency, and all other associated effects all techniques.
      Bankai:


      Name: Ethereal Locus — Tenka Reijin (天下霊刃, Peerless Spirit Blade).
      Appearance: In its Ethereal Locus form, Tenkai Reijin becomes an ethereal blade that radiates with an intense mix of pure and malevolent energy.

      Bankai Description: After assuming it’s Bankai form, after Shinigami no Haiku is activated, Tenka Reijin also adopts a Locus form. In this form, Emperor’s Soul is activated automatically and has its duration tripled, and all sen costs associated with other abilities are reduced to zero.

      Ability: Soul Harmonize II: Blade Curse [Locus Form]
      Type: Active/Passive
      Element: Dark
      Sen Cost:0
      Description: By paying tribute to malevolent spirits, Tenka Reijin becomes cursed by their ill will. As a result Tenka Reijin transforms into a youtou, (妖刀, "cursed katana"), and gains the ability to employ that powerful curse in battle. Whenever and wherever Tenkai Reijin strikes, that area becomes “haunted” as a result. This curse allows the effects of that strike, slash, or whatever else to be delayed for as long as Emi desires.
      • Anything cursed will take on a purple glow, clearly indicating that some sort of effect has occurred.
      • All delayed effects will happen as they would normally, however they can occur at a much later time. Ex: An attack that could slice a tree down would still slice that tree down, however Emi could decide for that not to occur until two posts later.
      • When striking the air, an unusual effect occurs where the “slash” becomes stuck and will remain that way until touched or if another area becomes cursed. Anything to touch this “slash” will be cut just as it would normally.
      • Any number of locations can be cursed simultaneously. However cursing anything after the air will result in the air curse being removed.
      • Areas will remain haunted indefinitely until Bankai is sealed.
        • Areas left haunted when Bankai dissipates will explode, releasing stored energy.
      Ability: Soul Harmonize V: Emperor’s Soul [Locus Form]
      Type: Active/Passive
      Element: Dark
      Sen Cost: 0
      Description: By paying tribute to the legendary Jimmu-Tennou, Emi and Tenka Reijin both become possessed by the great founding Emperor. With this Ultimate Soul Harmonization in effect Emi’s focus becomes that of shaping tremendous change and “commanding the power that forged a nation.” Using the blessings of Jimmu, Tenka Reijin and Emi are able to Harmonize with all other souls simultaneously for a short time.
      • This ability lasts for nine posts.
      • All of the effects and rules of previous Soul Harmonize abilities apply here. However there are exceptions.
        • The first is that Tenka Reijin can remain unsheathed with this Harmonization in effect.
        • The second is that that the strength condensing effect from Soul Harmonize III no longer requires Sen and no longer reduces the duration of this Soul Harmonize when used.

One who calls upon the ocean never expects the tsunami.
For beckoning the rains, also tempts the hurricane.
When simple kindling begs the wildfire,
A furious inferno to devour the lands.
And to say a prayer is to provoke the wrath of God.
Know ye not your foolishness?

Powers & Abilities

Reiatsu [S+]


I have now reached the true zenith of spiritual power. This level is so overwhelming that on its own that it can easily become a threat to all but the strongest fighters when fully unrestrained, when concentrated it's power could be even deadly when pit against inadequate defenses. At this point it seems as my reiatsu reserves have become vaguely limitless as even high level reiatsu techniques have become inconsequential to use.

Strength [S]


Truly terrifying. If but to keep things simple, that would be the only way to describe my power as it is now. Feats like breaking down mountains, picking up giants, destroying sections of cities seems paltry now. I've gained so much strength that even meteors would crumble before me. I could reshape a landscape with a single punch, and would be questionable if any but the strongest could resist such terrifying might. Throwing something as heavy as the Antonov An-225 could be effective in combat, though almost hilariously easy.

Durability [A+]


Bring me your strongest, so that I may embarrass them with my defensive might. I have evolved into a being of enormous resilience. Most heavy blows will find themselves lacking if not somehow reinforced, or able to mitigate my massive defensive presence. If you haven't realized it already, I can take a beating of immense proportions and still come out swinging with relatively little damage.

Endurance [A]


I exist near the pinnacle of peak condition. It would take a lot of high intensity activity before I could even remotely feel tired. A monumental effort would be required to slow me down.

Reiatsu Control [S+]


I can completely hide up to S+ reiatsu.
  • Reaitsu channeling can produce full strength blasts with long range, using much less reiatsu in making them.
  • Blast strength is perfectly controlled.
  • Can cast:
    • Shinigami:
      • Kidou: 1 - 99 with incantation
      • Incantation Abandonment: can cast Kidou 74 to 99 at reduced power
      • Mastery: can cast up to Kidou 73 at full power without incantation
      • Two-Fold Incantation: can cast two kidou at the same time, at full power, by mixing the incantations
      • Double Casting: can cast the same kidou at two targets at once.
    • Arrancar:
      • A Novice Cero (Adjucha-power)
      • A Normal Cero
      • A fully-loaded Cero
      • Twin Cero -- one Cero per hand, both at Normal Cero power.
      • Twin Full Cero -- one Cero per hand, both at fully loaded Cero power.
      • Bala -- 20 times quicker than a Cero, especially in the load time, but weaker in effect
      • Bala Barrage -- to devastating effect
      • Cero uses much less reiatsu to make; strength is perfectly controlled.
      • Cero techniques may be modified on the fly with full effect and are always stable.

Zanjutsu [S+]


One might say that as a Grandmaster at this level, I have ascended to a different plane altogether. My grasp of the art's theory and its application is as instinctive as breathing. My body and sword move as needed or desired without thought, leaving the full power of my mind to plot a course of action ... or consider what to have for breakfast, if the opponent is sufficiently below my level. My control of force is such that an opponent might not even feel the strike that injured them, or be left wondering how what seemed to be a graze severed a limb. Every apparent opening is a gambit. Every technique leads to a branching variety of others as if leading the opponent in a dance. And of course one of such skill could butter a thousand slices of toast in a single stroke of the blade.

Hakuda [E]


At this level, I show a total lack of knowledge. I have no idea what I am doing. Any attack would be based on instinct and guesses. If a punch or kick landed, I would not be prepared for the impact and might sprain or break something. A miss would leave me off-balance or on my face. When only using this art, a return attack will almost always cause damage, because I wouldn't know how to defend myself. Hand-to-hand could still be used in desperation, but the damage to myself is likely to be as great as, or greater than, the damage to the opponent. Assuming the I can even land a hit.

Hohou [A]


I have now reached the master level. I have now proven myself capable of maintaining super-sonic speedsfor extended periods of time all while using the least amount of steps to achieve those movements. Further more I am capable of using closing or creating gaps, between myself and notably lesser opponents often before they are able to realize any movements were made. Additionally, my speed and reaction times are so great that even when hit I can retaliate almost immediately after making contact.

Zanpakutou Mastery [S+]


All unlocked all mastered.
