Name: Mashiro Kuna
Skill Level: Swordsmanship: Intermediate
Skill Level: Shunpou: Advanced
Skill Level: Hand-to-hand: Advanced
Despite having formerly attained a position in the elite Gotei 13, Mashiro has very childish and immature mannerisms. She is portrayed as rather flighty and rarely takes note of the bigger picture around her. She is prone to throwing fits over the smallest of things, such as Orihime Inoue befriending Hachigen Ushōda or when Kensei insisted on following his subordinates into battle. Her childish personality frequently irritates her former captain Kensei, causing him to question why he kept her as a lieutenant at the time, he has noted she is capable of annoying him even while asleep (shown that his division had to hold him back constantly from trying to kill her). She often calls Ichigo "Berry-tan" (Berry Boy in the English manga, Carrot-Top in the English dub anime), a play on Ichigo's name. She seems to be good friends with Hachi, instantly disliking it when Orihime befriends him. In battle she is somewhat more serious though somewhat acting like a superhero while attacking and after winning.Appearance:
Mashiro's appearance is that of a young woman. She wears a white bodysuit with orange gloves, boots and scarf, along with a set of goggles atop her lime green hair. Her overall style of dress is reminiscent of the costumes worn by the tokusatsu superheroes in late 1970s Japanese television shows. During her time in Soul Society she wore a standard Shinigami robes, though her sleeves were very long. She also wore a pink scarf and glasses perched atop of her then wavy lime green hair.Hollow Mask:
Her Hollow Mask takes the form of a hornet or bee. She seems to be quite in touch with her inner Hollow; given the fact that Mashiro, from the start of her Hollowfication, was able to maintain her Hollow Mask for fifteen hours without practice of any kind, which means that she alone didn't have to train to maintain the mask like the other Vizard. However, this seems to be under unique circumstances outside of battle. Against opponents of higher caliber, her time limit is considerably shorter, as seen when her mask shatters during her battle with Wonderweiss Margera.Hollow Powers:
Power Augmentation: While wearing the mask, Mashiro's Hollow powers supplement her Shinigami powers, giving her a vast increase in both strength and speed. The transformation gives her legs great strength and speed. While being a hollow, her attacks seem to focus almost exclusively on powerful kicks.Inner Hollow:
Enhanced Strength: This increase in power and style is carried over to her Vizard powers to where she can break a Gillian mask with a single kick. and destroy Fūrā with a single kick.
Mashiro Super Cero: While fighting Wonderweiss, she has shown the ability to fire a very fast Cero by kicking in the air towards her target. The Cero is wide and follows the arc made by her leg during the kicking motion.
Hollowfied Form: When transformed into a Hollow, her mask remains the same as in her Vizard form, instead of covering her entire head as it usually does with a normal Hollow transformation(though this could be due to some resisting on her part). Her legs are transformed, gaining an insect like appearance.
Enhanced Speed: Her transformation allowed her to possess increased speed.
Enhanced Strength: Her transformation allowed her to possess increased strength.
UnknownUn-released Zampakuto's Appearance:
Virtually nothing is known about Mashiro's Zanpakutō, although it has a rectangular tsuba (with circles on each corner of the rectangle) and she carries it around in her hands. She has never be seen using her Zanpakutō in combat. While fighting the Gillians in Fake Karakura Town, she discards her still sheathed Zanpakutō and engages the Gillians unarmed.Shikai Release phrase::

Approximately 100 years ago, Mashiro was the lieutenant of the 9th Division under then Captain Kensei Muguruma. She, along with Kensei and the 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th Seats of her division went to investigate the mysterious disappearances in Rukongai. She constantly complains about the fact that they have to investigate something and not even know what they have to investigate, noting that a vanguard of 10 other investigators were already sent prior to their arrival. Her incessant whining only irritates Kensei causing his subordinates to have to hold him back to stop him from attacking her. Kensei plainly tells her that she wasn't even asked to come along, and tells her to just go home. She responds that she is his lieutenant so she has to follow him. She then falls down on the ground and goes into a temper tantrum, screaming about how she is hungry. Kensei decides to ignore her. Kensei is then alerted to a Hollow attack. Mashiro while absent from the battle finds 10 empty shihakusho close to where the hollow creature attacked.RP Sample:
Mashiro finds herself unable to grasp the logic in the mystery of the missing Shinigami prompting Kensei to send his men to relay the situation and get help in discovering the problem. Later, she is sleeping in the tent much to the annoyance of Kensei, who can't fathom how she is able to sleep at a time of such tension. When Kensei tries to fix her type so that she isn't exposing herself, she calls him a pervert, though she is still sleeping. Which makes Kensei note that she is even annoying while asleep. Kensei is then alerted to a scream and he and his other subordinates are subsequently attacked by some unknown assailant
When a team of captains and lieutenants are sent out to investigate the disappearance of Kensei's investigation team, Rōjūrō Otoribashi, captain of the 3rd Division is attacked from behind by a Hollowfied Mashiro, who deals a devastating kick to him causing him to hurtle down into the ground below. Shinji Hirako, captain of the 5th Division calls to Mashiro who takes note of him and begins to head toward him to initiate another kicking attack which he blocks with his Zanpakutō. With the timely arrival of Hachigen Ushōda shows up just in time to stop Mashiro from attacking Shinji by using Bakudō #75: "Gochūtekkan" to restrain her.
The investigation team gathers after the fight and talk about the situation. Within that moment, Then 12th Division lieutenant Hiyori Sarugaki starts coughing and becomes Hollowfied herself. It is then that a darkness falls around the rescue squad and they are attacked by a unseen assailant. The assailant is then found to be a masked Kaname Tōsen, Kensei's 6th seat, who is acting under the orders of Sōsuke Aizen who is the one behind the disappearances and Hollowfication experiments.
Just as Aizen gives the order to kill the Hollowfied Shinigami, Then captains Kisuke Urahara and Tessai Tsukabishi show up and save them from destruction. Aizen, Gin Ichimaru, and Tōsen make there escape and Tessai uses Forbidden Kidō to preserve and transport them to the 12th Division barracks. In his lab, Urahara tried to reverse the process using his created item, the Hōgyoku. Unfortunately, it ended up as a failed process, not having the desired effect Urahara expected.
The next day, Urahara and Tessai were arrested under the orders of the Central 46 Chambers. The Hollowfied Shinigami are sentenced to execution as Hollows. But before any of their sentences could be executed, however, both were rescued by then 2nd Division captain Yoruichi Shihōin, who brought them to a secret underground area.
In the secluded area, she had also brought Hachi and the other Hollowfied Shinigami, along with the prototype for the new Gigai that Urahara was working on. With that epiphany, Urahara resolved to make ten Reiatsu-blocking Gigai to aid him, Tessai, and the eight victims escape to the real world, where they would find a way to undo the Hollowfication process.
Mashiro first appears when Ichigo Kurosaki arrives at the Vizard Warehouse, planning to "use" them to help him control his inner Hollow. When Love comments on Ichigo being scared Mashiro asks of what, to which Kensei answers Ichigo being afraid of his inner Hollow. She asks what Hiyori is doing when she walks toward the fight between Shinji and Ichigo.
Mashiro is seen shortly asking a exhausted looking Hachi who is trying to keep up the barrier, if he was alright, he tells her no. She witnesses Ichigo's inner Hollow surfaces and nearly chokes Hiyori to death, she, as well as the other Vizard, quickly restrain Ichigo before he can kill her.
Mashiro later returns from shopping with Hachi, while Ichigo is training by himself and the other Vizard are just sitting around. Mashiro tells Love that she bought box lunches and ask him if he wishes to eat now. She then notices the argument Ichigo has been having with Hiyori and asks Love whats wrong with him. Love responds that apparently Ichigo isn't happy with doing the training exercise that Hiyori has set up, considering she didn't really clearly explain it or, why it's necessary.
Mashiro later goes with the other Vizard down into his underground training area. Mashiro waits with the other Vizard while Ichigo's inner Hollow emerges to take control over his body. When Mashiro asks whether they should take away his Zanpakutō. Love states that it would be pointless as doing so would needlessly increase the radius of destruction. When Ichigo defeats his inner Hollow and gains back control over his body he passes out. Mashiro asks Hachi if Ichigo is ok, but he tells her to be quiet.
While Ichigo is training with Hiyori, Kensei is timing how long he can maintain his Hollow Mask. Mashiro asks why is it that Ichigo has to do this, to which Kensei explains that he has to for practice in order for him to maintain his Hollow Mask longer, telling her that she had to do it too. Mashiro simply tells him that she didn't, causing Kensei to become irritated but Shinji tells him its true. Since Mashiro could maintain her Hollow Mask for 15 hours right from the start, she alone has never had to undergo the Hollow retention training. Kensei admits he had forgotten all about it. Mashiro begins to make fun of him enraging him even further causing him to have to be calmed down by Hachi. When Hachi becomes alerted when he detects someone has slipped inside his barrier. The other Vizard are surprised at the possibility. Orihime Inoue shows up and is revealed to Hachi and the other Vizard to be a culprit, they are shown to be quite shocked to see that a simple human could perform such a feat.
Later Mashiro is shown having a temper tantrum because Hachi is helping Orihime fix her powers, complaining that she is so annoying. This causes Kensei to once again become irritated, but they are both calmed by Rose who states that it is very rare to come across others with powers similar to theres and that he feels as though their family is growing.
Mashiro is later seen leaving the warehouse with the other Vizard to fight in the upcoming conflict.
Fake Karakura Town arc
She is then seen with the rest of the Vizard arriving at the fake Karakura Town, intercepting Sōsuke Aizen, Gin Ichimaru, and Kaname Tōsen's release from Captain-Commander Genryūsai Shigekuni Yamamoto's Jōkaku Enjō. When Shinji Hirako asks his fellow Vizard if they have anyone in the Gotei 13 whom they want to speak to, Mashiro states that she doesn't but why did he ask. When Shinji returns from speaking to Yamamoto thehuge Hollow creature spews forth a large horde of Gillian-class Menos from its mouth, Mashiro is among the Vizard when they put on their masks to prepare for battle.
Why was it she always had to be the one to go get lunch? Wasn't it Love's turn today? They could have at least sent Hachi along with her; the large man always seemed to be able to make her giggle. The pout that had formed on Mashiro's face upon hearing the news remained stuck until she finally reached the store. Staring at the various new products they had just gotten in, the Vizard inspected each in an attempt to determine which boxed lunch would best suit her friends. The muscle at the corner of her right eye began to twitch ever so slightly; her index finger lightly placed on her chin.
No, this was not going to be easy!
The better part of an hour had passed before the lime-haired woman grabbed the first eight packages she could place her hands on. Skipping back to the warehouse she idly wondered when they would finally fix the place up. Damn Shinji, why wouldn't he let her dress the place up? Was plastering the outside walls in monstrous purple and pink polka-dots really such a bad idea? At least Rose offered to help! Thankfully she remembered to pick up extra treats for him and Hachi.
"I'm back!" she called in an overly sweet voice as she held out the bags for the others. In a heartbeat the musical tone to her voice turned sour; her large brown eyes narrowing to slits. "And why didn't anyone tell me Berry-tan would be here and he'd be bringing 'her' along?" Though she thought Ichigo was as stupid as Kensei, he didn't overly annoy her. The large-chested redhead, however, that was another story.
"Shut up, Mashiro!" An all too familiar growl came from beside her.
"Kensei! You're a jerk!" Mashiro snipped as she spun around to face the silver-haired man. She was about to hand him the meal she brought back for him but stopped. In one quick motion, she ripped the plastic from the container and licked the contents. Shoving the food into his hand, she continued on her way; skipping over to where Love and Rose were sitting. "Ooooh, Love! Gimme some of those!"
