Name: Hikage Neko (Shadow Cat)
Sealed Appearance: A simple gold bracelet on his right wrist.
Release Description: Upon release Hikage Neko the sword vanishes and bracelets form that are about an inch in width and Atsuya gains the ability to extend claws from his fingertips.
Kogane no Tsume (Golden Claw): These are a bit different from the usual retractable claws in that a bright gold energy encases his fingers temporarily giving him powerful energy claws that do a bit more damage than his standard attack. (10% chance of causing a bleed effect).
Kudakeru tsume (Shattering Claw): Atsuya swipes horizontally across his form with his claws extended and 2 Golden arcs of energy form. The arcs of energy act as projectiles and explode on contact with his target.
Bankai Description: In complete form the golden bracelets expand to full bracers, and the golden energy from Kogane no Tsume becomes the standard form of his release, rather than being fully retractable.
Chimamire no Tsume (Bloody Claw): Only activatable after Atsuya has taken some considerable damage. The energy encasing Atsuya’s hands becomes the color of blood, and a slash into the air sends out four arcs of blood red energy which strike the opponent with considerable cutting force. And then once the strike is complete, the energy goes back to being golden. It can only be used once per release. Hits 4 times, but requires Atsuya to be at half-health or lower.
Tamashī no Tsume (Soul Claw): Atsuya strikes at his opponent, and as he does so the golden energy seems to pulse, almost like a heartbeat.
