Re: The Fell War Saga <A Bleach RP> [SUs] =REVIVED=
OOC: Well, it's tempting to go with Nanao because if Shunsui gets made, it'll make for some epic laughter. They give me hysterical giggles in a fuzzy way, those two. "Nanao-chaaaa-*fanstomp*"XD
But okay, Retsu and Rangiku t'is. I'll put Retsu up from the old one now, and work on Rangiku. Hopefully, she should be up in the next day or two...depends on Recruit School. >>
(Wonder if anyone will make 'Shiro-chan, then, if we're going with what's happened in the current timeline (DoH, look it up on Bleach Wiki if you're not up to scratch. You'll at least know then who would be alive or dead and stuff. Unless me voicing that idea with certain characters freaked 'em all out. xD)
EDIT: Hey DoH, if someone makes Hitsugaya, do you think it'd be worth letting them know I'm playing Rangiku so we can somehow discuss things like History so many years on? I mean, Rangiku and Hitsugaya are pretty close, so it might be an idea.
Name: Unohana Retsu
Alias: Retsu. Unohana-taichou/Captain Unohana.
Age: Unknown - is reputed to be one of the oldest Captains, however, and is believed to have been a Captain for a little over three hundred years, if not more.
Race: Shinigami/Soul Reaper
Aspect: Captain of the Fourth Division
Personality: Unohana has a gentle and warm personality that augments her appearance. Unohana is a soft-spoken, polite, and caring woman who uses honorifics when addressing everyone, including her subordinates and the enemy. She rarely shows any signs of panic or distress, and has a great sense of duty, shown in the times that she has been forced to follow this sense of duty over personal feelings, such as when she ordered Yamato Hantarou's imprisonment.
With her grace and kind manners, she lets others know quietly that while she may be soft and gentle-humoured, she is not to be taken lightly. Despite her gentle nature, several members of the Eleventh Division and even her fellow Captains fear her, and only a fool would dare to oppose her too harshly.
Unohana likes strong flavored food, preferring it to bland tasting dishes. In her free time, she climbs mountains throughout Rukongai, during these excursions, she collects medicinal herbs.
If there is anything else particularly odd about Unohana Retsu, it is perhaps the fact that she appears to have a soft spot for the notorious 11th Division Captain, Zaraki Kenpachi. Perhaps it is more likely that her patient gentleness is the cause of this tolerance towards him, considering how often he ends up in her care, however, this is open to speculation due to Retsu's kind but reserved nature.
History: Although not much is revealed about her past, it is said that she has been a captain for at least 300 years by this point; along with fellow captains Genryūsai Shigekuni Yamamoto, Jūshirō Ukitake and Shunsui Kyōraku. It is stated that the four of them have been Captains of the Gotei 13 for at least 200 years by that point. This makes her one of the oldest captains among the Gotei 13, despite her rather youthful appearance. Ukitake also refers to her as "Senpai" denoting her seniority to both him and Shunsui.
Approximately 210 years ago Unohana was present for a promotion ceremony, that took place at the 1st Division Headquarters, along with the rest of the assembled captains. She witnessed the arrival of the newly appointed Captain of the 12th Division, Kisuke Urahara. Her lieutenant at this time was Seinosuke Yamada.
9 years later, Unohana was present at a emergency meeting called by Captain-Commander Yamamoto where he decided to create a investigation team to locate the missing 9th Division squad members. When he gave out orders, Yamamoto ordered Unohana to prepare the relief stations for casualties, but Unohana interrupted him and asked if it wouldn't be better for her to tend to the wounded there. Yamamoto plainly told her that he couldn't send healers out without knowing what the situation was like.
With the past seven years since the series ending, Unohana has kept up to tabs for her own sake and the sake of those around her on the unrest brewing with the Fell Stones. She is much saddened by the divisions they may very well cause, but accepts that it is the way of any sentient species, from Shinigami to humans to Hollows; she herself has found an interest in the Divine Stone, rumoured to heal like no other can. Still, she has yet to find cause to actively make a stand, and spends her time between running her Division and trekking the mountains around Seretei, gathering herbs - something she has become more prone to doing these days when she is not immediately needed, for some inexplicable reason.
Description: Standing at a modest five foot two, Unohana Retsu is blessed with the air of one that, while gentle, is not to be trifled with. Apparently of a strong and healthy figure, Unohana has the appearance of a very youthful woman with blue eyes and black hair. She wears the standard Shinigami captain uniform apart from using an obi instead of the normal sash. Her hair is long and is always worn as a large braid in front.
Unlike most Shinigami, who carry their Zanpakutō in their sash, Unohana has a large string attached to the sheath of her Zanpakutō and carries it over her shoulder, or has her lieutenant carry it for her, whenever they are together on the battlefield.
Weapons: The following is taken with thanks from Bleach Wikia. Except for the Bankai, credit goes to half me and half a fantastic author who writes KenpachiXUnohana xD
Master Healer: Unohana is by far the most knowledgeable on health related matters in all of Soul Society. She is known to be highly proficient in conventional healing techniques as well as herbal healing. Her knowledge of anatomy is high enough that upon examination of Aizen's "dead body", she concluded it was not Aizen or even real. She also seems to be able to heal more than just Shinigami, evident when she heals Yasutora Sado, a human, and Gantenbainne Mosqueda, an Arrancar.
Kidō Master: As one of the oldest and most experienced captains, Unohana has advance knowledge of kidō and the flow of spiritual energy. Her knowledge and mastery of healing kidō are unrivaled within Soul Society.
Immense Spiritual Power: As one of the oldest Captains in the Gotei 13, Unohana has tremendous spiritual power.
Master Swordsmanship Specialist: Although she has never been seen in battle, it is known that her personal speciality is sword fighting, including her particular mastery in the kendō style of fighting.
Flash Steps Expert: Unohana is proficient enough in this skill to be of the average level of speed possessed by a captain.
Keen Intellect: Along with her general skill of healing, she is able to detect the smallest details. This helps her in her mastery of healing. She can detect anomalies and problems lesser healers would not. She can tell by a simple look what type of medical attention if any is needed. She also a powerful analyst with great attention to detail, able to quickly determine how to counteract any ailments in a person. Her powers of perception were also able to deduce that Aizen's elaborate illusion of a corpse doll wasn't real, but even more so that Aizen was perpetuating a much larger scheme.
Minazuki (肉雫唼, "Purify the Flesh"): In sealed form, Minazuki is slightly longer than an ordinary katana, and resembles a nodachi The tsuba has an oval shape and the handle is red. Instead of tying it to her obi, Unohana carries her Zanpakutō over her shoulder by a rope strap or lets Isane carry it for her.
Shikai: Its release command is unknown. When released in Shikai form, Minazuki will start to morph, turning into a green like gas substance before taking a solid shape of a giant, green, one eyed Manta Ray like creature with the capability to fly. Minazuki can act as transportation and will change back into the green gas substance before returning to its sword form when its duty has been fulfilled.
Shikai Special Ability: It is large enough to transport many people on its back (at least a dozen, based on its size when compared to those riding it). It seems to act on verbal orders and when landing it has the ability to somehow create a pair of bird like legs. Minazuki's main aspect is its ability to heal. When the wounded are placed within Minazuki's mouth, they are swallowed and stored inside it's stomach. Minazuki's stomach acids are strong healing medicines and ointments which gradually soak over the wounded, curing their injuries. Currently it has shown to be able to carry at least five people within it's stomach. When Unohana gives the word, Minazuki will regurgitate the people back out of its mouth.
Bankai: Unohana's Bankai is rarely shown, though when it is shown, it proves exactly why she is so feared.
Minazuki's command is that of "Gorge". When released, it dissolves and forms an eerie green mist reminiscent of Unohana's healing kido, but with distinctly more malicious repurcussions. The mist will then settle around and apparently inside of Unohana, before most unsettling, coalescing around her hair and forehead to form what appears to be the eye of Minazuki in it's mantaray form.
The eye will then search for it's target, and once it has locked gazes with them, or Unohana's own gaze has, the target will be left feeling...rather light-headed and happy, really, yet with the distinct feeling of being drained completely of all energy. It's rather like a drug, really, a tranquilizer to prevent the target from escaping as their life energy is sucked from them.
While it is more effective if Unohana is in contact with the intended target, it is not limited to this. She simply needs to lock gazes with the target - an easy enough feat, as she does not release her Bankai often, and when she does, they are generally too taken by terror to look away. It is also likely this Bankai that enables her to take and store energy to heal with to the degree she does - an eerie and contrary Bankai to her nature, but a fitting one.
Additional Info: "While it is good to be energetic, please remain quiet inside the hospital. As long as you are still inside this building, your lives are in our hands. Please do not forget that."
