Character that I plan on making the leader of "The Haven"
Name: Tataki Masu
Actual Age: 270
Appearing Age: 27
Tataki is a tall and built man, standing at 188 centimeters and weighs 100 kilograms. He is a proportionally cut individual, having broad shoulders and a rather tight physic. All along his body, the muscles are highly defined even when they are relaxed. His muscles are bulky by no means, but instead are sculpted in a way that it has the potential that it could make a few people jealous. When walking hes seems to walk like there's a stick up his butt, in a rather wound up and uptight kind of way. It seems to make him look stressed out even when he isn't.
Tataki has shortish medium length hair, when he has it down it looks almost bowl like in style. He has it combed back at all times giving it a sort of spiky appearance, except for when it gets wet or he is unable to for a while, it will revert to its normal bowl shape if any of these happen. While its combed back he leaves a lock of it uncombed. This lock of hair sits across his forehead from the very end of the left side of his forehead down and across. The color of his hair is a almost whitish silver in color, its color is brought out even more when it is in the moonlight, while in the moonlight it shines with a certain brilliance. His hair is silky in appearance as well.
Tataki's face is rather regal like in appearance, sharp and almost chiseled. He looks to be a very handsome young gentleman. He seems to appear to be about 27 years of age, though we all know that's not so. There seems to be no scarring of any kind on his face and his brows seem to be in a frown all the time do to his seriousness. Finally his eyes are a cobalt blue and give him a sort of kindness to his otherwise angry or stressed appearance.
He wears rather elegant clothing. First is a long, flowing, and blue three tailed jacket that has a snake like pattern, this pattern starts from the right side of his jacket and goes up and around then back down ending in a twisted like pattern at the bottom of the left side of his jacket. The pattern is white in color. It also has buttons that are meant to snap closed but he leaves them undone showing the shirt underneath. The inner liner of the jacket and the trim that goes around the edges of it and the arms is a gold color. The inner liner seems to be made of silk. The jacket has five straps on each arm with gold trim around each one and gold buttons to strap them with. The outer material of the jacket is made of a flexible leather.
The second part of his attire is his black ruffled dress shirt that he wears under his jacket. The as said before the shirt is ruffled and at the top of it it seems as though it were tied to resemble a tie. Along with his dress shirt he wears a pair of lavender dress pants that seem to be made out of a high quality material but it might be fake only some can tell. He also wears a gold sash which he specifically wears to place his sword and sheath into and it seems to be made of silk much like the inner liner of his jacket. The oddball parts of his outfit are his brown fingerless gloves and his also brown combat boots.
The final part of his clothing is a beautiful necklace which he wears around his neck and under his dress shirt as to keep it protected from harm while still keeping it with him. The chain of the necklace is silver that has been by the looks of it cleaned daily to keep its wondrous shine which becomes more noticeable in moon and sunlight. The chain attaches to the stone itself through a hole in the top of it. The stone is made of what seems like pink quartz that when looked at is see through and crystal clear. It is unknown to Tataki of how the process was done to make it so but, he seems to have a lot of sentimental value for it.
His voice is a lightish heavy and shows even more that he is a young man. It will usually carry when he needs it too and tends to get peoples attention when he needs it. When he speaks it his usual tone is that of someone who is unamused or rather serious, even in situations when it may not warrant it. This is not to say he can't be more casual it is just he prefers everything to stay within a level of seriousness. This tends to change when he is conversing with someone he truly trusts or cares about. In these situations it takes a more upbeat and happy tone.
He has a very strict military personality. When a job needs to be done he will not allow him or his subordinates to be side tracked by such things as pleasure, distractions, or low morale. Even if he has to make a speech each time they were to fail or simply find it hopeless and will never allow them to give up unless it is completely necessary. He is extremely loyal to his men and finds traitors to be on his kill on sight list. Also he despises those who would do horrible crimes in his country such as: murder, rape, child and wife abuse. All those who commit these crimes will be hunted down mercilessly and brought to justice. Now he is loyal to those he cares about as well and if faced with a choice between them and the world he might break.
He never wants his subordinates to be harmed unless completely necessary to allow the world and its people to flourish. If not he will protect them with his life. even greater still is his want to protect children. As he believes they are the future and need to be protected so that they may be around to make the world better or to preserve its grandeur. He will also protect them with his life because of this and may even have his subordinates help him to a point he may even abandon a mission. This shows that despite his rough and steel like exterior he actually cares for people. Some may say even a heart of gold though this may not be totally accurate.
Now he is not all business. He does have a few hobbies that allow the time to pass by smoother and faster. He loves the game of chess finding this activity both mentally stimulating and in a certain sense fun. He is also a practitioner in martial arts and swordsmanship. He is also a realist. Thus he believes that his abilities are not perfect as well and contain there holes in order to keep balance. No body is perfect in his eyes but at least they can try. Which is something he would respect in people.
He can also be quite generous though this mostly comes for kids that are lost or are in need of help. He tends to spoil them by giving them gifts or sweets. This is because he wants them to have what he couldn't growing up but he still cherishes his childhood despite this. There are times in which he is philosophical often uttering a quote he has read or heard of that would perfectly fit the situation. These may range from serious well thought out quotes to some more for a slight laugh or amusement. The intervals for this to happen are too variating to put a specific measurement on just that they could happen in rapid succession or not for long periods of time.
Tataki is a very intelligent and well read man. He tends to look down on those who are not necessarily less smart than he is but loathes those who give off the essence of stupid and finds it hard to contain that opinion within himself. He really enjoys books though more for the mental stimulation and all the possible information that is inside them. He has studied both kido and swordsmanship to a point of a certain level of expertise. Tataki tends to absorb information and locking it into his mind like a steel trap. Now sometimes the information may be useless though some minor things could all connect to form a bigger picture in his mind and as such he tries to keep it all for future reference.
Tataki has quite a few dreams. His first dream is for the world to become a utopia, were people can live peacefully and not have to worry about war, crime, or misfortune, His second dream is to one day be the leader over an organization, this is more of a continuance and insurance of his first dream, as he is hoping that he will bring this utopia to light. Finally his last dream which some may find silly and he is a little embarrassed about it. He wants to find......the worlds most perfect plush toy or cute thing. You can kind of see how its a little embarrassing for Mr. Strict himself. But, it is his dream none the less. The fact he likes cute things is more of a guilty pleasure than anything.
There was a being born of white splendor and hair. Mysterious as whether he be good or not. But that is not the case, his birth is marking the presence of a great figure in the history books to come in how well learned he would be. But the story behind this man referred to as best as Masu for short, yet Tataki for the entirety would be that of luxury, and plenty of time to be well learned.
His parents were much inclined on making Masu name prove up to being a line of savants and accomplished people in their own rights. That young Tataki had been taught violin as a demonstration first he has the creative cycle of things. Tataki learned the hard way, failing, even on a first try, was met with disciplinary action. That happened the first time when he screwed up on the string playing with the violin stick. Lashed for the failure, he had decided to practice alone and hidden so he would not fail.
That the next time his teacher for violin came, he has done at least better than before and got the tunes right, that the lash was averted. Though it is not the first lash to come and certainly not the last. That he has to be exemplary in all feats he was expected to do, which has left Tataki little chances at a social life. His only social life was receiving orders, that, and talking with his personal maid. One catering to his needs from food to hygiene.
That he had often founded himself lonely and getting something of a cold shoulder from his parents. Of course his hopes were kindled high at the conception of a brother. That he had hoped for a social interaction in the coming years that Tataki was rather warm and kindhearted to the youth, still a day old and from then on and so forth. Luciferus, an endearing person to the seven year old and all and about. But it was time spent in rarity with his youthful brother, affectionately dubbed Lucy by Tataki. Although years went by as he had become something of a musical savant, mastering the violin as of yet and became as top notch as a master musician that had his parents shown a semblance of being proud of his accomplishments.
Yet he had other things to do, and in his teenage years were spent being groomed to teach his musical talents. Having gained fame of being something of a musician yet despite the prestige he had gotten, most of those whom had adored his musical genius were merely hollow. They appreciated his music, not himself. That he had become distrustful and something of a hopeless romantic that idealizes a person that was there for him often. Yet he had in one fortnight, had laid his eyes upon his maid. For the first time her beauty had finally dazzled Tataki, she was a few years older, a good five years for the most part, and was groomed for youth to be a maid, but she was ravishing and a delight to be around. That she had taken care of his needs dutifully and what have you.
That in the middle of a bathing session, in an awkward request, the maid was required to disrobe Tataki and herself as she was required to partake in bathing alongside with him. That his lust had given way in her grasp of his manhood that they had started deflowering of one another. It was messy and sloppy but the slippery surface had provided a relief and ease for the both despite how unwell it were. That the maid had become something of his secret heart's adoration. She had begun to develop feelings for every request Tataki made, yet she was not of the same standing as he. Which made his love for her having to be kept something of a secret from his family.
Until one night whilst time spent in bed with his maid had Luciferus spied upon the two disrobed and mingling with one another most viciously. Had he reported to their parents in curiosity over the act, that the parents had also walked in over Tataki's private time with the maid. Alas, he had forgotten to lock the door in his haste over lust that had they caught the young savant. He was cast out of the family along with the maid with only the sheet from their bed as a show of how they wanted him out, with none of his rich garments and neither hers had they had to leave about to promise one another they shall meet again. A job was required that Tataki had spent time having stolen a guitar and had gotten a stick to play the violin in the streets.
It was where he had caught the attention of a musician looking for another violinist for his orchestra had Tataki caught unto a rise from his suddenly low position, to getting a job. His musical talent hadn't been wasted after all, had he had his love, his maid, return to him after the orchestrator was kindly enough to give a house to him in sympathies over the romantic idea of forbidden love. It had melted his heart. After all this, had Tataki, never one to tarry or delay, had begun once again forming conception so potent and no longer safely with protection, that he had in a series of timing, three birthed. One second after another late. It was of course after a year, that he had finally married the maid so the children do not suffer shame of being produced out of wedlock.
Tataki, with a heart heavy but somewhat hopeful, due to the fact he is still up and coming in the world and hadn't had his previous luxury of wealth, had to give away Anthony much to his chagrin. But was hopeful he would succeed in the world after all and one day perhaps meet him again when he has left a mark most pleasing. Hoping they would prove themselves worthy of the Masu name after all... to show that the father's love was not misplaced. It was around the time that Tataki had become something of a proficient savant in learning other languages by learning the meaning of foreign lyrics in the chorus that they sung. That, and having learned spirit combat from often punching the hobos that come to ambush him for change because Tataki was beginning to wear more extravagant clothing somewhat resembling his olden wear.
That had he begun to sing the songs himself had it kindled the flames of learning from a boy of the name of Michael Reed. Had he taught him things over the years of martial arts and lingual skills in a duo. Stopping from teaching Reed in grief although when he had learned his brother, Luciferus had died. That Tataki had sunk into depression and had hid, sinking into isolation as he had come to the orchestras to only record, but that's about it. Leaving along quietly in his job which burnt curiosity in those around him over his grief. Going as to lay flowers upon his brother's grave before disappearing. That the devil's booze, the drink, was his only solace. That he had went to a bar and got quite drunk, decided to grope an Indian woman viciously in the bar, take her along whilst stunning her with a grope to a room, and separated her from thy garments. That in his drunken depression, and to the confusion of the Saudi woman stunned by his good looks and somewhat down on her own luck, was fornicated with thoroughly. That true to his virility and potency, he hadn't missed.
That to the next day, Tataki woke up with a lack of memory of yesterday and a throbbing hangover... and also seemed to be without a body as well. Unbeknownst to him, the lady had gone an sunk a dagger into him as he slept and relieved him... of his monetary gain. She hadn't gotten much but $200 dollars. A chain hung from his chest which he had found himself fiddling with wondering, just what the sign of it meant. Also what had exactly happened. The only thing he could think of was to go home. That seemed like a good idea, right? Wrong. On his way there he found no one saw him, no taxi stopped for him and the worst part of it all? His family didn't even notice he was there. Coming to terms with death was not an easy one.
He stayed with his family... a slow never ending torture filled with misery. Unable to speak with or interact with them himself. Daily he saw that his chain grew smaller and smaller, he just couldn't fathom what it meant. What did this signify? It would not be long until he found out, for his brother came to him but, not as a spirit oh no. But, as something way more horrifying. He himself had become a hollow. Bursting through the wall and grabbing Tataki by the waist he made his presence known. "What's the matter brother, don't you recognize me!?" The horrifying creature asked. Tataki could just barely make out his brother's distorted voice. "L-lucy!?" With that the hollow smiled and threw him against the wall.
"Isn't it great brother!? We are reunited and I can show you what happens when a soul's time runs out!" He said flicking the chain hanging from Tataki's chest, it had certainly become a shadow of what it used to be. "The power you gain is simply incredible and by your chain I say that you will feel it soon as well.~" At this Tataki looked at his brother with extreme horror. Would he truly become like him? A twisted shadow of his former self? It was then the chain began to consume itself again. No... this couldn't be! Suddenly a loud noise came as a man came through the wall facing the two brothers. Who was that? It was a shinigami. Quickly his brother dropped him and went after this new foe. The shinigami side stepped him and swept at his feet.
The chain on Tataki's chest got smaller and smaller eventually making into his chest cavity. no... he couldn't become like his brother, not right now. He fought as hard as he could but, it seemed in vain as he vomited white material that clung to his face. As it coated his face his screams began to become muffled and liquid like. Suddenly the shinigami appeared before him and stuck his zanpakuto's hilt onto his head. The last thing he glimpsed was his brother yelling. "No!" and running at him and the shinigami. Then... he wasn't there anymore. He had been transferred to the soul society. Quickly he grabbed for his face and ripped off the material. A mask had actually formed from it but Tataki didn't care. He looked upon his chest and to his amazement the hole was gone. He hadn't changed either, what was the meaning of this?
He went to venture out now in a random village by the looks of it. He actually traversed around it to try and figure out where he was. Apparently he had been transferred to the Soul Society. A place he had never heard of. Lucky for him however he happened upon a nice older woman who needed some help tending to her farm. He gladly accepted, and he was grateful for the hospitality that she provided. He began to work tirelessly on the farm hitting the hay hard each night. On his journeys into town he began to hear about the one man who had granted him passage here, or at least, what he was. He was a Shinigami. Tataki had actually gained an interest in them and began to gain any possible information he could about them.
Sadly, not much was known about what they actually did except for transferring souls from the world of the living to the Soul Society. It was interesting they could go in between the worlds. That would be nice, after all, he could see his family again if he was one. But, as time went on he found that recalling his family became harder and harder to do. Soon he didn't even remember what his family looked like and eventually who they even were. What he did know, was the kind old lady who had helped him. But, he still recalled his interest in joining the Shinigami and continued on that goal. He was eventually found and tested to see if he could be one sadly, he failed the first time he tried for it. It was in fact not until ten years later, when he was tested again. He passed and was inducted into the Shinigami Academy.
He was now garbed in the necessary student attire and given a beginner's zanpakuto. It was strange, for he had actually never used swordsmanship before, let alone other lessons that he learned there. He never succeeded the first time in anything, in fact, he was probably the lowest in most of his classes. Finding it hard to spare with the other students, form kido, and even to do shunpo correctly. His body ached as he continued to train there. Kido spells exploding in his face, taking many hits in sparring matches, and running into things when he tried to shunpo away. He seemed like a lost cause but, he never gave up. Just got up and continued to try. After all, this had been a goal of his and if he gave up, how could he ever face the old lady who took him in and supported him eh?
He would eventually improve with practice and even started to when a few of his sparring matches. When he formed his first kido ball he was ecstatic, unfortunately, as soon as he broke concentration with his excitement the ball of kido exploded. He was still happy but, it was soured by the experience. As his skills improved he would eventually graduate the academy, not at the top of his class but, at least he had clawed his way up from the bottom. Though it had been hard work. He was proud to be holding his own zanpakuto at the graduation though, some of the students had attained shikai while he, himself, had not. His next goal had now been left before him. But, now that he was graduated, sadly, not all of his time could be used for training.
He had to go on missions and hope for some time to train when he got back. He retained no memory of his life as a human and as such, had forgotten his main reason he wished to be a Shinigami. Not that it mattered, by the time he had attained it, his wife would have grown old and gray or had passed on. Over the years he began to hear a voice in his head as he fought. Unfortunately it was inaudible and no matter how hard he tried he couldn't quite make out the words. It would be another year later before he could at least here part of what the voice said. "Ake..." What exactly could that mean? He had wondered. When he had asked, most had told him to meditate on it, or try and see if he could recall more.
With meditation, on and off, over the next couple of months, he would eventually hear all of what the voice had said. But this time, he found himself in a manor. At the center sat a man, with white hair similar to his own. "Hello?" He had said looking at the man. The man simply smiled at him and greeted him warmly. Tataki found he could actually understand the man now, coming to the conclusion that he had been the voice in his head. The man would later reveal himself as Tataki's zanpakuto and main source of his power. Through a gentleman's sparring match he found Tataki worthy to wield him. Though they had done a number on the mansion before they were done. Mostly from Tataki flying through the walls but, at least he fared far better than his first encounter with a blade.
With his zanpakuto's name revealed, he had now attained the enlightenment of shikai. But, it was not all celebrations mind you for a new war had entered the scene. A battle of the Shinigami versus the Quincy. Well perhaps a war was inaccurate, it was more like an extermination. Tataki held no grudge against himself, and even found the Soul Societies handling of them, cruel and unusual. Why must there be so much blood shed, when the two could simply work together? He didn't understand it but followed orders having to harden himself to do so. In his confrontations with the quincy he had fought many, taking down most and needing help for some of them as well. As some were more skilled then others.
He had to train his shikai upon them and it disgusted him. But, the confrontation would one day be over. Or so he thought, no one realizing what one day might occur. But, that was for another time. After the war things went kind of silent for a little while then, an out break had begun to happen. Shinigami were disappearing and no one was sure what had happened. Even Captains had begun to look into what had happened. Though, this was only rumors that Tataki had heard and wasn't completely in the know until Captains and Lieutenants were brought into trial for... obtaining hollow powers? Was that even possible? Well apparently if someone was getting charged for it... right? They had gotten the book thrown at them but soon, they vanished from the Soul Society. Never to be seen again.
Strangely that was about the time Tataki began to start hearing the faint murmurs of another voice. When he asked his zanpakuto's spirit what it was he seemed to shrug it off and dodge the question. He wasn't sure what was going on but, felt it best to stay out of it. He never really heard from the other voice over the years only in some rare instances. But, again shrugged it off and continued on. He would one day face an opponent that was neither hollow or Quincy for that matter. This being bolstered quite a reiastu and Tataki had been drawn to it for having a mixture of hollow and shinigami reiastu. The being would say that it was neither of the two but in fact, the next stage in hollow evolution but, nothing more beyond that. He begun his assault on Tataki, who found that he had to release his shikai right away or be crushed by his opponent.
As they clashed over Karakura Town it was obvious who was winning. The arrancar began to wear Tataki out and even revealed its own bestial-like release. At that Tataki had no hope actually being driven back and flung like a rag doll. He was thrown into building and smacked against the ground. He found himself unable to win no matter how hard he tried. He couldn't win... the lights were fading... there was no victory in sight... fading... fading... the lights... were fading... but that's when suddenly that voice returned but this time... it was clear as day. "Heh, let me fight, I'll slaughter this foul creature." Said the malicious and cocky voice. Reluctantly, and with his zanpakuto pleading to him not to give in, Tataki agreed. What he didn't realize, was what he had just released upon the world.
As the arrancar began to deliver the final blow a hand rose up and caught his blade. He was astounded by what had just happened. How could he have caught it? He had been practically dead! Ignorantly he chalked it up to stupid luck. Bad mistake. Tataki's face raise but the eyes and one controlling it... were not him. This new being unleashed a fury equal to that of the arrancar. They stood evenly matched and the battle had continued on. Tataki could do nothing but, watch in horror of how he was made to slice the arrancar, who he had been losing to not that long before. The battle only turning when the arrancar made another stupid move and got his arm lopped off. How unfortunate for him as the next strike went for his head but... the sneaky arrancar had something up his sleeve.
The zanpakuto still pierced his head, however... he had charges a cero and pointed it at the masked individual and letting it fly. The mask evaporated much like the arrancar and Tataki fell into the forest dropping his zanpakuto which sunk into a tree. He landed on his head and the world began to fade and the crying of his zanpakuto... got faint and wordless. Perhaps his only survival had been thanks too his now inner hollow but, he had lost something. His memories had vanished and when he awoke... he couldn't remember where he was or who he was. This... gave his inner hollow an idea... He pretended to be a friend to Tataki... but he was only going to do it so that he could rebuild his power he lost in the fight.
With this he began to teach Tataki how to use his powers, so that he may make them stronger and allow him to one day take over his body and not have to work on them himself. Tataki ignorantly followed along, never made aware that his friend... was not really his friend. Together they even developed a mockery of Tataki's zanpakuto's ability. Mostly for the complete irony did the hollow help Tataki develop this. The hollow also made sure to impede any contact from his zanpakuto. Didn't want to have him get wise to everything too soon. After all, taking a body from someone was a art and needed to be followed through properly and perfectly. It actually disgusted him to rely on this buffoon to grow his powers. It was not until 20 years later that he had, had enough and began his attack for Tataki's body.
They fought in his inner world and the hollow had been winning... until they Tataki regained his memories mid fight and release his zanpakuto from its slumber. Together they were able to put down the inner hollow who reluctantly conceded. After that was said and done... Tataki went back to the place he dropped his zanpakuto and retrieved it. Sadly since he had been using his hollows powers for so long he had gotten rusty with his shinigami powers. It took some time to build them back up and he found relying on his mask... was definitely not the way to go. His hollow had never actually submitted to him and when using the mask impeded him at every turn and chance. He wouldn't be as proficient with his zanpakuto as he once was until 50 years later.
He hadn't gone back to the Soul Society cause he knew what it meant for those who had obtained hollow powers and avoided other shinigami like the plague. Instead he tried to help keep the world at peace by vanquishing hollows. Unfortunately... that was quite a task for one man he had found. Maybe he could find more individuals like him to do it? No! Not like him... anyone who would help him do it. Create a new peaceful world. He would accept anyone's help who were serious about it. He would one day run into a man named Dante who was in a similar predicament to him. Together... the idea of "The Haven" was formed. They would recruit to one day... see this dream come true. One for a peaceful world, the other... hoping to one day find a cure for what he was...

Translation - Bright Blade
In its unreleased form Aketsubasa is an Ōkatana which has a black scabbard with a golden ribbon tied around it with the blade's handle itself was wrapped in white silk cloth with an intricate design of black silk covering the sides of the handle making a straight line to the guard while sheathed. It had several engravings located around its white handle and on the endpoint of its sheath. The blade itself seems to draw in the light when it is unsheathed. Having a rather heavenly glow, this of course is the trick of the light and the metal. It does not actually have a heavenly glow. The zanpakuto itself is about five feet in length. Looking at the zanpakuto from above, you can clearly see the engraving of a dragon with clouds above and below it.
Aketsubasa is a tall and built man, standing at 190 centimeters and weighs 90 kilograms. He is a proportionally cut individual, having broad shoulders and a rather tight physic. All along his body, the muscles are highly defined even when they are relaxed. His muscles are bulky by no means, but instead are sculpted. When walking hes seems to walk rather lazily and lethargically, in a rather wound down and loose kind of way. It seems to make him look at peace with the world to a rather odd extent.
Aketsubasa has shortish medium length hair, when he has it down it looks almost bowl like in style. He has it combed back at all times giving it a sort of slick appearance, except for when it gets wet or he is unable to comb it for a while, it will revert to its normal bowl shape if any of these happen. While its combed back he makes sure not to leave a single hair out of place. Making sure none of it is sticking forward or out away from the others. The color of his hair is a almost whitish silver in color and seems to be graying in some areas, its color is brought out even more when it is in the moonlight, while in the moonlight it shines with a certain brilliance. His hair is silky in appearance as well and soft to the touch.
Aketsubasa's face is rather regal like in appearance, sharp and almost chiseled though not to the same extent as his master Tataki's, as his nose seems less rounded than his zanpakuto's. He looks to be a very handsome older gentleman. He seems to appear to be about 35 years of age, though we all know that's not so. There seems to be no scarring of any kind on his face and his brows seem to be in a straight and bored expression most of the time do to his rather fun loving demeanor. Finally his eyes are a cobalt blue and give him an even more kinder look than he already has. He also wears a monocle over his left eye. (From his point of view.) The rim of it is gold in color with a nice clear piece of circular crystal.
He wears rather elegant clothing these days. First is a long, flowing, and purple three tailed jacket that has embroidering on the pectoral areas, cuff links, around the neck were there seems to be a collar that is flipped up but in reality is just rather big, and on the bottom around the rim of the jacket. The pattern is red and black in color, at times using a lighter red. It also has no buttons that are meant to snap closed and so the shirt is left open showing the dress shirt underneath. The inner liner of the jacket and the trim that goes around the edges of it and the arms is a dark burgundy color. The entire jacket including the inner liner seems to be made of silk. The jacket has cuffs on each arm with them rolled up once trim. The outer material of the jacket is made with a much nicer and softer silk and the jacket itself weighs close to nothing.
The second part of his attire is his white ruffled dress shirt that he wears under his jacket. As said before the shirt is ruffled at the top of it and seems as though it spreads out near the top actually covering part of his jacket and seeming keeps the jacket from fully closing. Though the dress shirt is white on the upper part the lower part of it is the same color as the embroidered parts of the jacket. Along with his dress shirt he wears a pair of purple dress pants that seem to be made out of a high quality silk much like his jacket. He also wears a red sash which he specifically wears to place his rather large sword into and it seems to be made of silk much like the inner liner of his jacket. The sash also acts as kind of a sheath for the sword. He also wears a pair of black colored loafers and a pair rather elegant white gloves made of leather.
His voice is calm and collected with a after taste of happy. It will usually calm the angriest and sooth the most hurt. His voice is hardly ever raised in anger or strict unless something or someone he loves is in danger. When he needs it too and tends to get peoples attention when he needs it. When he speaks with it his usual tone is that of someone who is laid back or rather happy, even in situations when it may look bleak or impossible. This is not to say he can't be more serious it is just he prefers fun over that of seriousness and anger. This tends to change when he is conversing with someone he truly doesn't tolerate such as idiots or the like. or cares about. In these situations it takes a more impatient and serious tone.
Aketsubasa is a rather good natured man. He has a rather easy going and accepting personality most of the time. He believes stress only brings people closer to death, while no stress allows you to live just a while longer. He will often talk to the other two nonchalantly and rather openly at that. He will hardly ever hide any secrets except for if he is told to or he finds that are on a need to know basis. This is mostly cause he is a man of honor and his word. He is the kind of guy that if he were to find someone struggling on the street he would find himself unable to continue unless he helped this person. He is also rather patient as he has grown in age he has also found that things often come if you are willing to work for it and have the patience to wait.
He is also a big supporter of family. His will to have a big family has led to depressing thought on occasion. He is quick to trust people with the ones he cares about, if it is a good friend of his master, or maybe even someone who just gets along with his master really well, he will instantly say they are a part of the family. To him family is something that is always gonna be there, its something that you can lean on when your scared or maybe you can't solve a problem. At least that is how it is in his eyes. If someone hurts someone he deems as family, Tataki will see a side of Aketsubasa that is not normally seen. The pinnacle of what is wrath and anger will rain down upon them like the storms of hell. Yes, he is that protective.
He also has an extreme loyalty to those he trusts. Those who manage to gain his trust can actually find it really hard to lose it. He trains in the arts of martial arts and swordsmanship. He also seems a very well studied violin player. Often he will play a violin for Tataki to try and make him relax more. He also absolutely hates boredom, if found in a pit of boredom he will find his way out of it by trying to find something to do. Thus there is never a dull moment with him, rather truly. An oddball next to Tataki's strict behavior.
Relationship to Master
He looks upon Tataki as a son in a sense. Having disagreements with him as most families do. The fact that he is care free while his master is strict and a bit overbearing slightly annoys him but, he believes in his cause. Having been with him for a few years now, he can see how he plans to bring about this peaceful land. He also hopes that once this project is done he may finally relax and stop to smell the roses once in a while. Also like any good parent, he wants to see his "son" succeed with his goals. Of course there is the harsh words they may exchange with one another, having different ways of obtaining the same goal can cause this kind of conflict after all. So though they agree on the goal, they don't always agree on the means.
Tataki's Zanpakuto's inner world is that of the inside of a giant mansion. Any doors leading out will just cause someone to enter from the other side of the mansion. The style of it seems to be an old Victorian style. Entering the world, one comes in through the double doors, they then proceed to shut behind them with a loud creak and then BANG! Looking in, the room is completely empty besides a red carpet leading towards, and up, a staircase which goes up to the floor above. There are large, five pronged, candlesticks everywhere around the mansion. Chandeliers hang from the ceiling and all are alight. Large, rounded, support beams dot the area of the main floor and railing goes all up the staircase and around areas of the upper floor. Looking over the railing one can see the downstairs.
Yuuto looks like a reptilian-humanoid standing at the same height and weight as Tataki Masu. His scales cover his body and their colors are a mockery of the clothes Tataki wears. They are exactly the same is what I'm driving at. One thing different is the blue scaled feet with a black serrated claw at the end of each toe. He also has a sheath that is not on his hip but actually attached to his arm which in his fights with Tataki he has been known to use a shield to protect himself from a blow or two, so that he may retain his glorious image. His hands much like his feet have black serrated claws but, his hands are also black. His face is that of a reptile, and toothy serrated grin and haunting, seemingly emotionless, green eyes.
A fin jets up from the top of his head and his tilted back and furrow much like one would furrow a brow. His neck is elongated and has scales that form around it and make it look much like flipped-collar that settles back down as it nears the top. The zanpakuto that he wields in Tataki's inner world is exactly the same as Tataki's himself. Strange as this may seem that Aketsubasa would trust him to wield him as well, it has been hinted by Yuuto that he attained it when he battled Aketsubasa and won. Strangely, Tataki has no idea when this battle occurred and neither one of the two are telling him.
Yuuto is a very prideful inner hollow. He looks upon himself in high regard to a point where its almost like he has a god complex. He honestly believes he is the best thing to ever happen to this world. He looks upon those lesser than him with utter disgust and contempt. He only respects strength in people. Seeing utter cowards as nothing but canon fodder. He thinks so highly of his abilities he runs into situations with not fear what so ever. Failing in a fight is not an acceptable result for him and he will take it rather personally honestly blaming other people involved as he believes he couldn't have failed at all.
As if he didn't think high enough about himself, he believes he is the best looking hollow alive. He sees himself as flawless excepted for the fact he is connected to Tataki. That to him is his only imperfection and even goes out of his way to try and take over his body whenever he finds him distracted. He takes shots to his face really personally wanting to kill whoever does it. He also takes rather good care of his body to keep his imagined perfection. Insults to him he will take just as personally if not more than shots to his face, chasing down the perpetrator.
Yuuto is also very combat oriented individual preferring fighting to talking in most cases unless talking is completely necessary. Most of the time when he is talking to someone they are usually someone he respects. He respects those who are stronger than him no matter what the race... to a certain degree that is, it just means that they have earned the chance to hear him talk and converse, this does not mean he bows to them. He has an overly zealous look at weakness, he despises it with an extreme hatred because at one time he thought of himself as weak, not enjoying being stuck to Tataki, and he will personally go out of his way to crush it. Since this is true he tends to ignore those who are weaker believing that they have little use in the world. The way he underestimates weakness may be the reason for his downfall one day.
Relationship to Master
Yuuto's relationship with Tataki is stretched to say the least. After having built a repore with him for a few years as only a plan to take over has lost Tataki's trust. Literally completely untrustworthy to Tataki. Then again, if you lost your memory and someone made you think they were your friend and isolated you from your zanpakuto for many years, you would probably be pissed to. Yuuto literally tries to take over Tataki's body whenever the opportunity presents itself. His relationship with Aketsubasa is also strained, even with Aketsubasa's forgiving nature, as he kept Tataki and him apart for those years.
Mask Appearance and Summoning
Tataki's vizard mask looks allot like his hollow's face ironically. The main difference however, is that it looks more humanoid and far less reptilian actually missing the serrated teeth. The eyes are different as well, instead of being emotionless and green they are an intense blue. The reason for this might be because of Tataki wearing the mask and not being controlled by Yuuto. Now though Tataki has some control over his hollow, due to their time when he actually trusted the hollow, he can only hold his mask for one minute before it dissipates and leaves him in a horribly weakened state. (About one less tier then his usual, and yes I understand his tier will not be lowered from what it is graded.)
Another side effect from using his mask and not submitting the hollow through normal means is: whenever he puts on the mask there is an eerie feeling he gets because, Yuuto tries to take over and will often taunt him to use his powers. Also having involuntary movements as Yuuto controls some of his actions against his will. Basically while in combat with his mask he find himself having a hard time staying focused as he battles an enemy on the outside and the inside. If Yuuto ever takes over, the mask takes on more reptilian features, like the serrated teeth and emotionless green eyes. Over all, his mask has been a handicap in quite a few of his fights over the years. To summon his mask Tataki grips his face as if he were having a horrible head ache, which in a sense is what he is bringing upon himself, and the mask begins forming around the area of his hand and then expanding to its full form. This takes about three seconds to do.
- Description of Attack - Tataki holds his hand out in front of him with his elbow bent at his side and hand facing palm side up. From here he changes the cero and when it is fully charged he brings back his arm and rotates his palm so it is facing towards his enemy. He then thrusts his arm forward and when fully extended lets the cero fly. The cero is a dark red in color.
- Limitation - The tell tale signs make using a cero pretty useless in one vs one combat, taking about 8 seconds to charge and get all the mechanics out of the way. Though he has trained with this ability and supplemented with his already rather impressive kido skill and ability to use reiastu to its fullest extent, it still costs him to use it. In total he uses up about 3% of his reiastu every time he fires a cero. For a tier above he would probably only do about 50% of the cero's full potential, while for someone of the same tier it would do 75% and soomeone lower it would do 100% of the total damage. Any further tiers in either direction it increases or decreases by 25%
- Description of Attack - Tataki holds his hand out in front of him with his elbow bent at his side and hand facing palm side up. Much like if he was charging a cero. In a sense he is doing just that but, with a little tweak. When the energy has formed into the palm of his hand he seems to crush it. The spectacle is of beams of light escaping his hand. At this point the cero splits into 10 reiastu swords. Each sword is about the equivalent to a bala in strength and speed but, instead of a blunt hit, as they are more like swords then balls of energy, they actually stab the tip into the target before dissipating. After the swords have formed he raises his hand and then let's it drop to his side as a sign that he has released them. They then proceed to fire at the target heading perfectly straight. This was actually created by his hollow in an attempt to recreate one of his zanpakuto abilities. Each one of the swords is about the size of his zanpakuto and the same in appearance.
- Limitation - The swords can only move forward and do not follow the target by any means. The tell tale signs make the using of this ability pretty useless in one vs one combat, taking about 8 seconds to charge and get all the mechanics out of the way. As it is more difficult than a simple cero it costs him about 10% of his reiastu per use. In order to equal one cero all of the swords would have to hit the target. The piercing effect of the swords can be easily avoided by someone dodging them or even being of a higher tier than Tataki. Another limitation is that if Tataki is struck it could cause him to lose focus and the attack will be foiled or backfire on him causing damage. He must fire all of them at the same time and he can't fire them one by one. If they were all to hit a target the was a tier higher they would do 50% of there total damage, while someone of the same tier it would do 75%, and someone of a lower tier it would do 100%. Any further tiers in either direction it increases or decreases by 25%.

Translation - Split.
Aketsubasa is a single broad claymore with a very stylish guard, it looks almost like bat wings and has a gold design on the face of it. The pommel, with skulls as its appearance, and grip, being almost spiraled in appearance, are elongated. If standing it actually reaches over Tataki's hip by a foot. The blade of it has a amber color to it. When being swung it actually seems to move slower than if he was swinging his unreleased zanpakuto. This could be do to the difference in appearance as well as well as its weight. The length of the claymore is about five feet in length.
- Description of Attack - Tataki Masu charges his reiastu into the blade. During this the blade begins to glow a faded blue color. From this he can either thrust or swing his sword at his opponent. This sends a faded blue sword, resembling his zanpakuto at the opponent much like a arrancar would throw a bala, oddly it is also about the same as the speed and strength of a bala as well. The amount it would do to those of different and the same tiers would be about the effect of a bala.
- Type - Offensive
- Range - Medium (15 feet)
- Limitation - The blade fired can only move forward and does not follow its target. Do to it having about the strength of a bala, it is a rather weak attack. The attack has about a charge time of a bala, though fast, it still takes some time. If he is not able to swing or thrust his zanpakuto, he can not perform the attack. Do to the attack being weak tiers above Tataki are unaffected by the damage of the attack, those of the same tier it does about 50% of the damage, and those below him feel the full 100% of it.
- Description of Attack - Tataki Masu charges his reiastu into the blade. During this the blade begins to glow a faded blue color, almost as if he were charging Blade Strike. But, the difference is he puts more reaistu into it almost like he was going to fire a beam out of the tip of his zanpakuto. The reiastu seems to raise off of it. Then as the reiastu reaches it peek, the reiastu seems to dissipate off of the zanpakuto and forms into 6 faded blue versions of his released zanpakuto. Then pointing his zanpakuto straight up into the air, he then proceeds to drop it. This motion seems like he is giving the command for a group of archers to fire arrows. But, it is the blades that shoot forward at the opponent.
- Type - Offensive
- Range - Medium (15 feet)
- Limitation - The blades fired can only move forward and does not follow its target. Do to the blades each having about the same strength as a bala, it is a rather weak attack unless somehow someone is hit by all six blades. The attack has about a charge time of a cero, taking him about 3 seconds for it to fully charge. The amount of reiastu this attack uses up is about 10%. Each of the swords shoot at about the speed of a bala. He must fire all of them all at the same time and he can't fire them one by one. He is not able to use hell swords with this ability. If they were all to hit a target the was a tier higher they would do 50% of there total damage, while someone of the same tier it would do 75%, and someone of a lower tier it would do 100%. Any further tiers in either direction it increases or decreases by 25%.
- Description of Attack - Tataki's zanpakuto dissipates into thin air. After that, six faded blue versions of his zanpakuto form around him and flare up and are covered in a purple flame-like reiastu. After appearing, the blades begin spinning around him faster and faster, kinda like a gyro blade. The point of this ability is to try and push his opponent back while at the same time causing major damage if they come too close. When it spins around him it appears to be a fast moving mixture of purple and faded blue light. The blades are actually spinning at about hip height to him. As he turns his hips or pivots them, the blades move along with it.
- Type - Defensive/Offensive
- Range - Self (about the length of his shikai.)
- Limitation - Though this is a defensive technique it is hardly perfect. For example it leaves most of his body exposed meaning that someone could easily attack from above or below Tataki. Another thing is, it does not push back projectile attacks, such as quincy arrows and kido. This means that someone could also stay at a safe distance and continue to shoot at him. The amount it costs to keep this ability up is about 3% of his reiastu per second. This means he could use it for about 33 seconds in total but, if he were to do that he would have depleted all of his reiastu and be susceptible to attack anyway. If the blades connect with his opponent they the damage that they inflict is about the same as his zanpakuto itself. To a tier above it does about 75% of its damage, to the same tier it does 100%, and to a tier below it does 125%.
