Xela has a thin smooth face with soft skin. Her cheeks are average in muscle tone and confinement. Her lips are plush with a light shade of pink. They normally line upwards with a smile. However her social face is with a caring mother complexion.
Xela's eyes are keen with gold. Though her pupils are oddly large for dilation. Xela's hair is green and strait. Her hair goes straight down to her butt. Her hair has naturally been cut but has also been treated plenty of times with small time trims here and there. Her green hair is unnatural.
Her thin gut line comes from her small weight and tall height. She has long shaved legs. Her skin tone is naturally tanned white. Through this her figure is seen as a beauty that can not be taken. Her uniform is like any other Shinigami's except the white part is sapphire blue.
Some of Xela's worst topics of discussion insist on destroying others. War is never her favorite option as she despises such measures as she would merely fight to end it as soon as possible. She likes to cave, swim, hike, and kiss. That would be the oddest bit of her is that she will kiss the most random people that could be seen. Even though she swears she is strait and only likes guys she will kiss girls at random.
She has only this one persona that can not do much with aside from defend. She is the absolute defense in this. She lives to protect human life but not to follow its standards of living. She is often seen as a heretic or pessimistic and at times a masochist. She is many things while living the life to protect those she can not stand to see harmed.
Xela does not appreciate harsh amounts of tone and anger with people being short to her. Short as in angry, questioning, etc. She is still haunted by nightmares, so another thing she does not like is nightmares either. One thing she will never get to accept is persons whom kill without question or motive. A difficulty of hers is the fact that when an order is given she must obey it even if it goes against her own beliefs.
Xela was born to a not so wealthy family in Japan. Right outside the confines of the border with Kyoto. Her father was a samurai to the emperor's royal guard while her mother was a whore. The father was out to fight while her mother was away leaving Xela alone when she was eight (8). This is where Xela was murdered.
Her mother had ripped off a customary of some money and the only compensation was Xela's head. Sick as it was that man was put to the stake for murder while both parents were in grief. Xela was a free spirit in many aspects. She grew and roamed many parts she never dreamed off. These included most area's of the "new world" and Europe.
While in the Fuji Mountains of Japan she was confronted by a shinigami who sent her to the soul society. There she lived quite comfortably in the better places of the Rukongai. She would happen to also show much potential as a soul reaper. Through the soul academy she had been taught many rudimentary things but proved to be too useless in kido and higher intellect.
Xela would graduate from the higher classes of combat only after having spent most of the time trying to be good at kido. The intellect would never grow sadly. She would have already gotten her shikai as well and would perform well to train on it alone before going into any court guard squad. She observed the human world on hollow eradication missions in the North Japan districts.
Xela still has yet to join a court guard squad but has many years under her belt now. She has much experience and from that came the knowledge of how to well plan a fight, as far as her intellect would let her, as she lead only one mission that was a great success. She helps around the soul society by supplying tea to most of the residents of the fourth squad barracks and those across the board.

Name: Vanno SydÃ¤met Kuoleman
Translation - Finnish: "Swear the Hearts to Death"
Using the sight of a kodachi, a sword of similar size to the wakizashi (3 foot blade, eight inch hilt), as the appearance of the blade, the sword in general has a silvery green hue. The hilt-guard is made to look like an oval shape with emerald fringe along the hilt. With a silver sheath that extends the length like that of a Katana where the empty space of the katana sheath is filled with a sufficient metal to display misconception to the size of her actual zanpakuto.
Name: Vanno SydÃ¤met Kuoleman
Red fury of hair in spiked positions across the head that is shoulder length. Vanno has an icy skin color however despite her "hot head" color. She in all respects wears a large gown of that with a wedding dress. Her back is in-human with spines coming out like spikes. Each one is a weapon of usage by Vanno in the harsh training sessions with Xela. She has silver colored eyes and very fine fingers that look as though they have never worked a day in their entirety.
A spunky persona that forces good to be done. Good, in Vanno's definition, is the act in which you follow orders and then be rewarded. She hates the snow, given her hair color but oddly not her skin tone, and she hates much of what Xela does. Since in all aspects Xela diminishes the emotions necessary for the sunny beaches of Vanno's world to be unfrozen. Vanno loves the sun and at times will wear a bikini to show the greatness of the heat. It may be because of Vanno that Xela has the horrid habit to kiss anyone, including higher officers, women, etc.
Relationship to Master
In all respects the two don't get along well because of emotion. Aside from the emotions it is mostly a one sided convenience. Vanno enjoys teasing Xela with hugs and kisses. Xela on the other hand does not like to waste time but at the same instant she doesn't like to commit to something she can not fulfill. The two of them have a scale of one (1) being worst and ten (10) being best: an eight (8) in proper relationship.
The world is of a beach. With sandy shores and constant cool air as well as the soft waters rising and falling on the shore. Sadly the world falls victim to many ice storms with the conflicting emotions of Xela. When Xela isn't conflicted how-ever the whole place is the greatest for self relaxation, meditation, and for Vanno to do tricks on Xela. There features a small stadium underwater in a single air bubble for such occasions where the two will train.
Call Out Phrase: "Vannon sinun pÃ¤Ã¤lles, anna minulle elÃ¤mÃ¤."
Translation - "I swear upon thee, give me life."
The sheath and the zanpakuto merge into one blade. The merge creates a single blade that is just a katana but within that katana is the ability to split into a whip. The whip in general is rather stingy but not fatal unless the whip acts to pierce the opponent's body. The katana's blade is the sheath's and the kodachi's lengths combined making it a six and a half foot (6 ft. 6 inch) blade where it can then release to whip length of 1 foot per foot of blade making out a total of 12 feet and 6 inches total.
- Description of Attack - Allowing the whip to fully extend and then circle around with full speed the whip will then go forward to where it will then attempt to stab. Even without a stab some damage is done depending on rate and where the opponent is when the attack occurs. The area touched by the blade experiences second degree burns and the area within half an inch to two inches receives first degree burns.
- 2 tiers below: Replace blades damage with third degree burns where second degree burns would be and second degree burns replace the first degree burns.
- 1 tier below: Both of the burns become second degree.
- Same tier: [Source: Description of attack] The area touched by the blade experiences second degree burns and the area within half an inch to two inches receives first degree burns.
- 1 tier above: All of the burns are only first degree. (Replace second degree burns with first degree)
- 2 tiers above: The first degree burns becomes nothing while the second degree burn becomes a first degree burn.
- Type - Fire/Heat Melee Type
- Range - Length of whip + 2 inches
- Limitation - Uses up 20% reiatsu. Can only sufficiently hold for 10 minutes while within that time Xela can only perform the technique sufficiently for three swings per extension while only being able to use 4 extension periods. Any amount of time after that 10 minutes the percentage of reiatsu in Xela decreases by 5% per two minutes.
- Description of Attack - By the spinning of the blade, the user can release all of the whip to spin around and shield the user in an endless pattern where projectiles can not get through. The projectiles can be elemental attacks, kido, cero, bala, etc. Any projectile launched at Xela and doesn't make it through the defense is bent around the protection of the whip while having any power in it diverted to behind and/or to the sides of Xela.
- 2 tiers above: Projectiles hinder the barrier completely by the second hit allowing only one hit to hinder the barrier useless. If the attack wraps around; then the protection destroys and hinders (hurts) Xela by 5% per projectile (at 100% Xela feints).
- 1 tier above: Projectiles can hinder the barrier by 50% per hit.
- Same tier: Projectiles can hinder the barrier by 25% per hit.
- 1 tier below: Projectiles can hinder the barrier by 10% per hit.
- 2 tiers below: Each projectile can hinder the barrier by 10% per 3 hits.
- Type - Defensive Melee
- Range - three feet around self
- Limitation - Can only perform twice in one setting and activation of Shikai. This technique drains 45% of Xela's reiatsu. Can only sufficiently hold for 5 minutes before the whip has to retract back into a full blade. No more than 5 minutes.
- Description of Attack - Allows Xela's blades to merge and form a katana/whip. The whip can extend up to twelve and a half feet (12' 6") total.
- Type - Melee
- Range - 12' 6"
- Limitation - Shikai in itself allows Xela's blade to grow but for a cost. For every 5 minutes the whip is active she loses 10% of her reiatsu. The can retract back into a blade to where she will only lose a portion of the 10%, that being just 5% lost. She can not keep shikai active for more than thirty minutes at a time. At which point once it goes over that amount of time she will have rejection and her blade will transfer back into a sheath and sword.

Xela would smile one day. It was a good day considerably due to the nice breeze and the cool air. There was only one thing that could make it a bad day and it was already happening. She had to enjoy this day in a gigai. She hated them more than dresses. She absolutely could not stand being in one for more than an hour but this time she had been in one for a good eight days.
There was a reason behind why she wore a gigai on such a day. It just happened to be her time to test something out in her own. She would have made the excuses in the past to put it off but they finally caught up with her. Now she had to not just suffer two days of the gigai research but eight days. They sure know how to make research for these things unbearable. She would just focus inside her own mind as she sat on the beach.
Her own zanpakuto spirit, Vanno, had already made it a point to laugh at Xelaâ€™s poor decision. She would know that a lot of beating would come from this due to having made her emotions show in the zanpakuto world where Vanno hated snow. She would only gruffly like the way it panned out. For now though she would have to tough through the misery. Not much to do but enjoy the day in her opinion.
She would pick up some sand and drop it down. Her green hair flowed through the wind with much grace as she would then jump across the small creeks until jumping into the water from an overhang. The water was cool and of course wet. She would swim through it. But then she remembered why she hated the gigai especially much for this research... She was nude.---
Back in the lab
Xela would return to the lab having been in humiliation for eight days. "The results turned up excellent Miss Xela. Very excellent..." The scientist would say to her with curling fingers that would tap each time.
Xela would shake her head with a definitive scowl present on her face. She was already out of the gigai and back to her normal clothing and her zanpakuto on her back. "So help me you swine, if it weren't for orders I'd beat the bloody hell out of you," Very much unlike her normal self but then again she was nude for eight days so there wasn't much to not expect.
Xela would just get out of there as fast as possible with a definitive walk until interrupted by a new shinigami. "Care to join me for some tea? I work for that swine too so I can understand your hostility so may we enjoy a cup of tea together?"
He was nice, maybe too nice and for that she would just go with him anyways. He didn't say a name quite yet but she thought she ought to say her own. "I am Xela, may I ask who you may be?" There was still some hostility in her tone but nothing new apart from what she had been through.
"My name is Kyle and as you may have guessed I am new here," Kyle said with a cool political tone that just breached the confines of great vocals that could match some politicians.
"Wonderful name. Now may I ask why you wished to share tea with me?" Xela just wasn't one for much talk after her ordeal. She was one to want some sleep for a while before taking on more of the day. She did however sip at the tea when Kyle had poured it into her cup.
"I wish to ask you something Xela. You see I am one of those shinigami who apparently don't hear the voice of his own zanpakuto. I am curious if you expirenced this struggle in the past or not." His voice was a tad shaken as he drank down his tea with a gusto of rhythm.
Xela looked at him with a stunned face for a few seconds. She didn't know you could have a chance in a division like the twelfth without having known your own zanpakuto's name. "I am sorry but I don't know what can come of helping you when I myself don't know your struggle." She said with certain cryptic details, "How about you speak to some of the students of the academy. They may be more help to you then myself."
She said it with all honesty and Kyle seemed to have listened to her, though he had a pained look. "Enjoy the tea then Xela. And please don't give the scientists much more trouble. We do our research for your own benefit."
So it came back to that did it? She would nod lightly and finished her tea before leaving with a thank you not present. She would eventually come to thank him in the future but for now she didn't see the reason to. She would instead head back to her own bunk and sleep comfortably until her wake up call.
