Love unveils the mask we fear we cannot live without, but cannot live within.
Full Name: Shihoin Kaiou
Birth Date: February 4, 1522
Gender: Male, mostly
Birth Place: Seireitei
Known Languages: Japanese, Arabic, Farsi, Spanish... everyone knows Spanish anymore, some Mandarin Chinese, he'd started learning from Suifeng.
Alliance(s): Goteijusantai (he is not quite placed back into the divisions yet, still re-acclimating).
Now, of course, he lives with his parents, Atsuya and Rohan, in the Shihoin manor. His room's mostly wood, neatly arranged, but very dusty, and probably full of spiders and whatnot. He'll... clean through it later. Most of his junk probably needs to be tossed out, anyway.
Hair Colour: Black
Eye Colour: Blue
Height: 5' 11"
It's kind of obvious he never got as much combat training as other Shihoins, because he's more slender of a guy than the House usually turns out. Then again, his father's always been on the slender side. His shoulders are a bit broad, but not much extra.
There's a very faint scar just above and to the right of his right eye.
Mostly, he just wears whatever he can find, and prefers clothing that covers a lot, so he'll tend toward long-sleeve shirts, pants, and maybe yukata on a good day.
Zanpakutou: Inori (prayer)
Zanpakutou: Inori (Prayer)
Inori takes the form of a silver metal, blue crystal point earring. It is a slightly deeper and bluer colour than Iname's Hyoukai, but they are a matching set. If one looks at it, long enough, the blue in the crystal seems to move gently, and one may catch sight of tiny air bubbles floating in it.
Release Command: Wameku (Scream)
The earring vanishes, and seems to burst into a very fine mist. Anywhere the mist reaches, Kaiou can use Inori's abilities.
There are no real, individual abilities with Inori; it's all free-form generation and control of water in its varying forms. Inori does, however, heal, and it heals very well. Kaiou essentially relies on hand-to-hand, and uses it in conjunction with his Shikai's generation abilities. In Shikai, however, Kaiou cannot command ice, or anything that isn't straight-up water.
Bankai: Hyoukai Inori (Frozen Sea Prayer)
It doesn't seem to change from Inori's original release, but the mist probably thickens a good deal.
This is the exact same Bankai Kaiou's twin brother Iname has; both need to be present in order to activate it, as their Zanpakutou are two halves of the same whole.
Like with Inori's Shikai, Hyoukai Inori offers free-form command of water, but with the bonus that it can, at later mastery levels, also command ice, blood, plant matter, essentially any liquid, or anything with a large amount of liquid in it. Neither of them are anywhere near that level of mastery, but they'll get there.
