Name: Yugito Kowalczyk
Inside, she's like a violent siren. But on the outside, you'd easily mistake her for something completely different.
Her hair is a colour found in between dirty blonde and light brown. She likes to keep her hair tied up in a messy ponytail, but when it's down, it reaches about five inches past her shoulders. Her bangs are long and messy, and fall over her forehead just above her eyebrows, with some longer strands framing her face. Recently, her hair has gotten much longer and now falls a little past the middle of her back.
Her eyes are a light shade of hazel, though it looks more brown than green. Or maybe they're golden-brown, she doesn't really know. Being half-Polish also gave her a really light complexion, but she's not completely pale. Although she inherited her eyes and skin tone from her Polish father, her facial structure comes from her Japanese mother. She has a rather narrow face with high cheekbones, a thin nose and defined lips.
At 5"8, Yugito definitely isn't on the short end of the spectrum, but her height displeases her. She wants to be taller, because that would make towering over people a lot easier. Her height stems from her legs. Long and lean, they're her best weapon when it comes to sprinting. They're also good for kicking things. Her fingers are long and quick, perfect for running up and down the piano keys to play really complicated pieces. She's particularly proud of her hands, and keeps them moisturized daily. Her arms are thin with little muscle on them, but she’s working to make them stronger, as her newly awakened powers now demand for a punch-based style of fighting instead of her preferred kick-centered style.
Yugito has a moderate build, not too muscular, but not particularly skinny either. She exercises weekly, because fitting into her jeans takes a lot of hard work. She likes taking jogs in the park and kickboxing, and sometimes she'll dabble into some Yoga just to shake things up. Her bust is of an average size for a girl her age, not obnoxiously large, but not small enough to be unnoticeable.
When not in her Karakura High uniform, she likes wearing nice clothes. And by nice, I mean ridiculously expensive clothes that one would never imagine she’d be able to afford. She has a particular fondness for shoes, as all girls do, and especially likes sneakers. Sneakers that she can kick in are the best kind of footwear.
Don't be fooled by appearances. Yugito is one tough bitch. Some people think she has a multiple-personality disorder, but Yugito couldn't care less. One minute, she'll be helping your grandma cross the road, and the next minute she'll be whooping your ass all the way to Mexico. She doesn't say much, but prefers to express herself through actions, usually by doing something unnecessarily violent to get her point across. Of course, it's nothing illegal because deep, deep inside, she's a goody-two-shoes at heart. Still, she's sent to the office a lot because of her excessive kicking.
Probably the only non-violent thing Yugito likes doing is, surprisingly enough, is to play the piano. For some unfathomable reason that not even she understands, she loves the piano. And it's not just that. She's actually good at it. In fact, she's won numerous awards for her playing in competitions, both local and international. So it's not much of a surprise that her preferred choice of music is classical, something from Bach or Mozart and can't stand annoying teenage pop music. And, if anyone makes fun of her musical tastes, she'll say nothing. She'll just break their kneecaps. She's also unimaginably fast on her feet, fast enough to qualify for her school's track team, but turned it down because of conflicts with her piano recitals.
According to studies, classical music makes people smarter. It seemed to have worked for Yugito, because she doesn't seem to have a problem with her schoolwork. That said, she's terrible at math and barely skimmed by with the minimum average. However, her English and History marks are remarkable. Of course, no one really acknowledges this, because they're usually too frightened to ask her about it.
Being raised in Poland for a large chunk of her childhood, Yugito can speak Polish, Japanese and English quite well, though her Japanese has a unique accent to it. But no one ever made fun of that slight accent for the safety of their ribs. Her Polish side of the family also graced her with a very privileged upbringing, but her recent bout with her father abruptly ended it. Still, she has a taste for the good things in life, and her closet alone could feed an entire third-world nation (though she did donate more than half her old clothes to the Salvation Army. So if you see homeless people wearing Gucci, you know how that happened.)
Recently, Yugito's true self has slowly began to show. Her violent outbursts are her form of tough love, especially to a certain Russian who always ends up on the receiving end of her threats. She cares very much for the people she's close to, and although she might seem indifferent, or in some cases, extremely irritable and violent towards them, it is in fact the opposite. The more threats she makes, or the more trouble she causes, the more she cares. She doesn't know why she does it, it just happens. Maybe it's because she's afraid to open up emotionally, as she sees it as a weakness and an opportunity to get hurt. This stems from her relationship with her father, someone she was once extremely close to but have since then ceased communicating most of the time. More on that later.
Furthermore, Yugito's "tough girl" persona hides her true insecurity. Yugito's one greatest insecurity is uselessness. She hates weakness, and especially hates the fact that she, no matter what way you look at it, is weak. Although she's grown accustomed to beating up juniors and students who piss her off, she realized the hard way that there were much stronger things in the world, and some of them want to kill her. Due to her weak powers, she always feels useless around those more spiritually aware than her, such as Mikhail and her sensei. Because of this, she desires to improve her abilities and show the world that no one, living or otherwise, fucks with Yugito Kowalczyk.
Yugito was born in Tokyo to a Japanese mother and a Polish father. The circumstances in which they met is long and makes Yugito's head hurt, so we won't get into details about that.
For the first three years of her life, Yugito lived fairly happily with both her parents, but by her fourth year, their marriage had crumbled. After a long process of paperwork and arguments, it was decided that Yugito would stay with her father, a successful lawyer...in Poland. At first, the move was stressful on the young girl, but with time, she grew fond of the country and grew close to her father. Seeing how she had potential in music, her father enrolled her in piano lessons, which proved to be successful. During this time, Yugito regularly contacted her mother and had firm belief that her parents would be reunited once more.
During her time in Poland, Yugito felt strange 'chills' from time to time, even during warm days. She didn't know this, but those chills were the result of being near spirits. Once, when her grandfather died, she felt chills for a week before it finally disappeared. She didn't know that her grandfather had been with her until he passed onto the Soul Society.
When Yugito was thirteen, her father was assigned an important case involving a very wealthy and powerful woman. The case was so big that Mr. Kowalczyk had no time to see his daughter, leaving her with other family members or with babysitters. Yugito wasn't too happy that her father had become too busy to see her and did just about anything to get his attention. Such things included purposely losing at an important piano concert to get his sympathies, to breaking his mother's extremely expensive china. But her father was just too busy to notice. When he finally noticed how neglected Yugito had been for the past few months, he called her mother and asked if Yugito could stay with her until the case finished. Her mother agreed, and Yugito travelled to Japan for a few months and stayed with her in Karakura Town.
As she stayed in Karakura Town, Yugito began to actually see the spirits, instead of just feeling their presence. At first, she was terrified, but her mother helped her deal with it. Still, she feels uncomfortable around 'dead things' and tries to stay out of her way and ignores them as much as possible. But as her stay in the town further increased her spiritual abilities, and she gained the power to create mirror illusions of herself. Again, her mother helped her control her newfound powers.
A year passed and Yugito was anxious to return to Poland, as she was having a hard time in Japan. But when she called her father one night, she was in for a shocker.
He had married his client. And, they were expecting a baby.
'Anger' is an understatement to how Yugito felt after hearing that call. And to this day, she still resents her father, which she takes out on with violence. She decided to stay in Japan with her mother, because she could no longer face, or even talk to him.
In time, she eventually got used to living her life in Karakura town. She went to school, piano practice, and occasionally volunteered at the hospital with her mother. It was because of this unfortunate volunteering experience that she was asked (read as: forced) to attend to her classmate, named Mikhail, while he was recovering from an encounter with an arrancar. She visited him daily, bringing news and homework from school, as well as sarcastic comments and insults. However, something strange began to happen during these meetings. Something within her grew each time she visited the injured Russian. And as much as she wanted to deny it, it continued to grow, until she knew that she couldn't suppress it any longer.
She liked him. And in a moment of sheer stupidity on her part, she acted on it with a single kiss.
The rest was history.
Numerous Dates, shopping, treating each other for food, arrancars and a very long and confusing run-in with a particular time-travelling device later, the two teenagers eventually became a couple. But the more she spent time with Mikhail, the more she realized about the uselessness of her own abilities. Making clones when compared to making and throwing ice simply wasn't the same. Determined to become stronger, she sought the help of one very eccentric Quincy.
Makana was willing to help Yugito with improving her powers, and their training sessions often yielded very few results. Until one day, when out of sheer desperation, Yugito launched herself at Makana in a punch. A pink-coloured punch.
That was also the day she realized her sensei was pregnant, and the beginning of the awful nightmares she had about the
hell-spawn of her history teacher and guidance councilor.

Yugito's mother had an unnaturally high reiatsu and was always able to see spirits. She passed it onto Yugito, but not enough of it to actually see them, just the 'chills' whenever ghosts were around.
Upon returning to Karakura town, Yugito absorbed some of the lingering reiatsu and heightened her spiritual senses, enabling her to see and interact with spirits, as well as develop minor spiritual abilities that are somewhat useless in battle.
Discovery of Powers
Yugito had been very distressed one day, not long after her arrival in Karakura town. Feeling her anger bubbling up inside her, she decided to take a walk in the park in order to calm down. Unfortunately, what she felt inside her wasn't anger, but her reiatsu gathering within her body. As she approached the park, she unknowingly released the reiatsu from within her, and it took the shape of her exact form.
Yugito's abilities manifest as gathering and compressing her reiatsu within her body, and then releasing it in different concentrations. How she releases the reiatsu within her varies, and affects the outcome and the shape of the reiatsu. If she simply lets the reiatsu shoot out of her body, her clones are created, and because they are not particularly compressed, they are intangible. The more she compresses it upon releasing, the more impact the reiatsu makes. However, because she has simply been releasing the reiatsu as-is to make her clones, compressing it into something more tangible, ie her punch, takes much more effort and is harder for her to do continuously. Her abilities only make use of her own reiatsu, as she is unable to gather reiatsu from outside sources, like Quincies.
Other Specialty Items
None, really. Well, anything large and heavy in the near vicinity is often used as weapons for comedic purposes but...
Abilities, First Stage
- Description of Attack - This ability allows her to create an exact mirror reflection of herself that mimics her every move. The reflection is a simple illusion; it's intangible and does no real damage to the surrounding area. She does this by gathering reiatsu within her body, taking from between five seconds to ten, depending on how far she wants to "shoot" the clone. After enough reiatsu is gathered, she simply "lets go" of it, and shoots it in any direction within the limit of her distance. The clone is intangible and does nothing by its own will, despite appearing to look three-dimensional. If something goes through it, it will flicker pink momentarily until the object in question is out its body.
- Type - Distraction-type?
- Range - The image is projected about four feet away from Yugito in all directions. The reflection can also pass through walls, because it is intangible.
- Limitation - The illusion lasts for a maximum of five minutes, before 'magically' poofing away in a shower of pink glitter/dust. Also, because it’s intangible, it doesn't really do anything to, well, anything. It's just confusing. And somewhat pointless. Furthermore, if Yugito is hurt, the clone will exhibit the same injuries, for example, if the original starts to bleed from the arm, the clone will mimic it. If Yugito is knocked unconscious before the clone is dispersed, then the clone will disappear by itself in a puff of glitter.
Poncz Jajników (Ovary Punch)
- Description of Attack - This ability is a more potent use for her reiatsu gathering ability. Similar to Odbicie, Yugito gathers reiatsu within her body and releases it, however, the way she releases Poncz Jajników is much different from the clone. Unlike her clone, where she simply "throws" it out of her body, Yugito concentrates the reiatsu within her body into her arm, right one preferably. The reiatsu travels down her arm and into her fist, covering it in a pale-pink aura that has the same effect as lightning. When her fist makes contact with another solid object, pink-coloured lightning comes out, effectively making the punch a "pink thunder-punch".
- Type - Offensive
- Range - The range of Yugito's arm
- Limitation - Yugito can only shoot one "thunder-punch" at a time, and in only one arm at a time. It takes her much longer to concentrate the reiatsu down her arm, about twentyseconds to do so. It also drains more of her reiatsu than making a simple clone, draining about 10% of her reiatsu with each punch. Further more, because the reiatsu simply enhances her punch, she can't shoot it out of her fists like a projectile, thus making her entire body a target considering she needs to get up-close and personal for the ability to be effective.
