Name: Akuga Shoto
Age: Appears to be 17 - 170
He has very pale blond hair, with a spiky, bed-head style. His eyes are glowing crimson, with a serious look on his face. His face is medium width and length, and his cheekbones are at average. His mouth is normally set in a half-frown, as his eyes usually display his emotion instead.
He doesn't have a broad chest, wide shoulders, or a six-pack, like most stereotypical tough guys. In fact, he is skinny. Skinny to the point that he almost seems unhealthy. Almost. He is caucasian, but not extraordinarily pale. He weighs in at 119 lbs, at 5"8'
He wears a brown kimono with olive-green trim, and carries a katana. He has no sheath for it, so he just carries it around in his hands. His intimidation factor mostly comes from his deadly death-stare and the fact that he carries a sword around with him everywhere.

He is cowardly, always running from his problems, and not facing them directly. He acts a tough guy, but mostly depends on intimidation to get things done. He is a punk, a miscreant, real garbage. He does have the capability to change, as any person does, but for now he chooses to be as he is.
He doesn't get into fights much, he just makes up an excuse or intimidates the person into submission. He likes to manipulate people, and is very good at persuading people and making them unwittingly do his bidding. He can be cunning, although he isn't very educated. He talks with a nonchalant tone, and speaks with slang in his speech occasionally. (Example: "I walked down the street, and had ta pick up some milk, but time musta' gotten away from me. By the time I got home, it was dark!" He is also very egotistical, and becomes enraged very easily if someone makes him look stupid, or beats him at something, or really makes him feel not as good as someone. In these times, he has a will of steel, and the drive of a just-branded bull to kill whoever just burned their insignia into its backside. But he also has the common sense of a hollow on shrooms. (I.e. he doesn't really think things through before doing them, if he thinks it will help accomplish his goal.)
His favorite foods are unlimited in number, but if he had to pick any one food, it would be chicken. Whether fried and stuck in batter, cooked and covered with orange sauce, or baked, he cannot resist anything chicken-flavored, or that is chicken itself. However, he is slightly allergic. He will get an overly runny nose whenever he eats it, but that hasn't stopped him before.
His hobbies, other then terrorizing the population, are drawing, although he is terrible at it, he enjoys drawing things out greatly, and takes great pride in his (non-existent) artistic prowess. He also enjoys working out, mostly because he isn't exactly proud of his lean physique. He works mostly with strength training, because he can never seem to gain any muscle. He occasionally does parkour training, not that he doesn't get enough practice on a daily basis. More often than not, he'll find that he has spent the whole day perfecting a drawing. (Making it worse than it originally was.)
His sense of humor is dirty and profane, which is to be expected of an ill-mannered ruffian. He knows more jokes that have to do with innapropriate themes then words, some would say.
When he was taken to soul society, he ended up in the 79th district of east Rukongai, and immediately found out what a bad place it was. The second he arrived, he witnessed a man being beaten mercilessly for no apparent reason. He fled to a dilapidated building, where a small group was living. They told him to beat it, and he did. He continued to flee from various disturbing things, until he found temporary sanctuary within a forest. He found a stump to sit on, and contemplated his situation..
.:A Few Days Later:.
By this time, he had obtained a katana, which he "found", meaning stole from someone, and it acted as an instant status symbol. He had also clothed himself more appropriately, his old clothes being torn and ripped. He now donned a brown and olive green kimono. Much to his disdain, he couldn't "find" any shoes. Also annoying to him, he couldn't get any food! He was starving. He searched high and low, but nobody seemed to have any. He had started stealing out of necessity, he got the sword due to the lack of protection, but then just started doing it for fun...
He has managed to stay alive, barely, through the sheer will to stay alive. He has lied, cheated, persuaded, and intimidated his way to becoming respected. Respected in the way that a neighborhood bully is, where if he ever lets up, and the fear diminishes, he'll be done for. His main concern has been keeping up his street cred, which means making every weakling in the district scared of him, while shying away from those who are strong. He hasn't had any run-ins with shinigami, and probably won't stumble upon one, but that is his ultimate fear.
He has been run out of more then one district, and consequently, has been moving down the ladder of districts. The lower he gets, the more lawful the district. He knows that if he gets low enough, people won't stop at running him out of town. Yet he continues refusing to be a respectable member of society, and keeps doing what he has been doing.

Stolen Katana - It is a generic katana, with a yellow tsuba and tsuka (Guard and Handle), but the ito is purple. (The diamond pattern things.) It is polished and well-taken care of, and shows almost no signs of use, due to Akuga being too cowardly to actually use it unless absolutely necessary. The blade is of average length for a katana, about 26" long, and the handle being close to 12". All together, the sword is about 38 inches long, close to half of Akuga's height. (Please correct me on real katana lengths, got these off of the internet, so may not be correct.) The blade seems quite nice, especially to be in the hands of someone like him. He lost the scabbard, so he just carries it in his hands. It is not spiritual, just a sword.
Akuga was strolling down the road in Rukongai, intimidating all in his path with his sword and deadly stare. He was enjoying himself immensely, but it was too good to be true. Someone who wanted to be a hero stepped in front of his path, and Akuga nearly ran into him. He didn't look too tough, so Akuga decided to mess with him a bit. "Hey hey hey, I didn't know that they let horribly mutated abominations into rukongai... Oh wait.. that's just your girlfriend over there." He said as he pointed towards the woman the man was previously standing next to. Okay, so it was a lame insult.. But it would have to do.
As Akuga woke up, several things ran through his mind. The most notable of them were "Where am I?" and "What happened?". He dwelled on these questions for a while, but then recalled what had happened earlier. Guy hit me pretty hard.. How long was I out, I wonder..? Note to self, do not judge a book by its pages.. wait.. agh, forget it.. He shook himself to make sure nothing was broken, and found that his sword was still in his hand.
He crawled out of the ditch that the man apparently had left him in. At least he didn't steal my sword.. he thought, but then he realized why. He was in the middle of the forest. And he didn't know how to get home. "No no no no, crap!" he exclaimed, and panicked. He heard that there were hollows in the forest. He also heard that hollows weren't very nice. He started in a direction, and kept walking. It seemed to be like hours to him, although it was only about fifteen minutes. When he emerged into the sunshine, he found that he was a bit east of rukongai. He set out for home, and decided not to go back to that particular part of the district again.
