PostSubject: Shinigami Race Information   Sun Oct 07, 2012 7:36 am


Who or what are they ?

Shinigami are souls that have supernatural powers. As such, their bodies are composed of Spiritrons (spirit particles) instead of atoms. This means that just like most other types of spirits, they can only be seen by other spiritually aware entities, which excludes most humans. Nevertheless, they are quite capable of influencing their environment. When souls with exceptional spiritual energy train their bodies, they reach the level of Shinigami. The most talented of them become affiliated with various organizations like the Thirteen Court Guard Companies and the Stealth Force. Sometimes, a Shinigami is born among the residents of the Rukongai, and in some rare cases from Seireitei. Shinigami are the personification of death. Their job is to send spirits to the Soul Society (the afterlife) in order to maintain a balance of souls between it and the material world, and to exorcise evil spirits. Because of their duties Shinigami possesses supernatural abilities such as:

Longevity: While they can age and die of natural causes or as a result of physical injury as regular humans, Shinigami have extended life-spans and it is not uncommon for one to live for thousands of years.

Enhanced Endurance: While they can be injured and die like regular humans, it takes considerably greater injuries for the latter to occur than it would in regular humans.

The Shinigami have faced many hardships throughout there history, stemming back to the great wars of the Quincy stemming into the great fall. Much is uncertain about the great fall, but it started like any other war.

First they came to Karakura town, a small group only 3 or 4 of them. Central 46 met in hushed tones, the Sotaicho sending out two parties to intervene. Seemingly the inevitable happened, those two parties were wiped out fairly quickly. Various other groups filled the vacuum and the Togabito were destroyed.

But the losses the Gotei achieved were great, and shook the foundation of the shinigami world. The Captain Commander killed off Central 46, the bonds that held together the shinigami world, rocked by his actions. He fled into the human realm, where the newly appointed Sotaicho hunted him down mercilessly himself. This action was seen as the only recourse to the events that transpired, but the ends do not justify the means. The Captain Commanders choice of actions could not have come at a worse time. Deep within the maggots nest, a vizard had been carefully biding his time, waiting for a moment to strike. Little known to the vizard or the rest of the Gotei 13, a Togabito Prince was also held in that location, moving things behind the scenes.

This Togabito, the Conspiring Prince made his move, letting the vizard out while the Captain Commander was away. The rampage and destruction caused by the newly freed vizard allowed the Togabito prince to slip out unnoticed, and garner support for his actions. With the Captain Commander away, and no real leadership, the Gotei 13 turned in on itself, getting into petty territorial disputes between captains, rather than keep up with policing the spiritual realm.

Two captains fell during this turmoil time, however there fall was kept in silence, for the Prince of Pacts made a deal with them. They begged for peace, a respite from bickering, and a return of leadership. The Togabito gladly agreed, and gave them just that. There Captain Commander returned victorious, the previous CC in toe, thrown into the deepest pit in the Maggots nest, never to see the light of day again.

A time of peace came over the Shinigami, but this was not long lived. News came that the arrancar world was being invaded by Togabito, a large army of demons had decided to take up residence there, and there main choice of food was arrancar. Mobilizing a task force to head to there land. The two captains were the ones that made a deal with the Prince himself. There leaving would spell the end of the Gotei 13 as all know it, for it was said "If only the Shinigami had one more captain to defend the walls, the outcome would have surely been different" Let alone two.

The Togabito came, or rather appeared. The Prince of Conspiracy at there helm, a vizard chieftain at his side, he waged a terrible war on Soul Society. The losses suffered by the Gotei 13 were astronomic. Every captain was lost, the captain commander was the first to fall. The Prince personally lead a platoon to deal with him. While the Vizard created chaos as a distraction. Soon two more Princes appeared, dealing a crippling blow to the 2nd and 11th captains, killing them outright through shear force. Now the captains were beginning to realize, 9 captains, and two that weren't even in SS at the time. 6 captains remained to fight 3 princes, a vizard and a mess of underlings. Vice Captains began dropping like flies, each of them trying desperately to fight against the horde of underlings. Two captains rose from the ashes of this horrible event, the 4th division and 10th division captains. The two of them killed two Princes, tag teaming them. There triumph would prove to be too little to late in the grand scheme. Exhausted, the final moments came when the other captains gathered around, a group of 6, with 8 vice captains surrounding them. The Prince of Pacts laughed as he sat upon a new throne made up of the bones of the former Captain Commander. The captains in a desperate move, released the imprisoned captain Commander, unknown to them that he was driving mad by one of the now dead princes.

He killed the two exhausted captains, before himself being killed by the 7th and 8th. A echo throughout the land sounded "And then there were 6". The Prince laughed, however his own forces had reached a stale mate, the vizard and him were the only known elites against 6 captains. The odds were not in there favor. But all was not well in the land of arrancar. They had all but been wiped out. After two or three weeks of little fights between the Togabito and Gotei 13, the flood gates opened.

15 Menos Grande appeared, chained and horribly scared as 3 princes emerged, the remaining hellspawn. This was known as the Night of Falling. Making one last stand, the 6 remaining captains and now 7 remaining Vice Captains made a desperate attempt, they found themselves surrounded by the races of man, and arrancar.

Soul Society had become a gathering ground for the most climatic battle known. They weren't any sides, and yet there were. The humans and quincy held there own against the Togabito that had come to claim there town. 3 Princes appeared from the tattered remains of HM, and all held bated breath waiting for the King of Hell to arrive. Waiting however is a horrible thing, and puts too much stress on parties involved.

Which is why the Togabito didn't wait, they launched wave after wave of assault on the combined forces. Captains fell, Quincy fell, Humans fell. The entire thing was a mess, the two princes died outright. The Prince of Conspiracy used arrancar's hatred of shinigami to fuel his own ranks. Some nights his laughter could be heard throughout the battle ground. Everyone suffered immensely, this wasn't a battle to win, this was a battle to survive, and no one played it harder than the shinigami.

In the end, through the chaos, only a few souls walked away. The King of Hell was defeated when he arrived, some say by the 5 that remained, some say the 5 just survived. All in all, only they know what really happened, and so far as we know, they aren't talking.

Gotei 13

The Gotei 13 (護廷十三隊, Goteijūsantai; 13 Division Imperial Guards, 13 Court Guard Squads in the English dub, 13 Court Guard Companies in the English manga) is the primary military branch of Soul Society. It is also the main military organization that most Shinigami join after the academy.

::1st Division, Command:: 1st Division members are the shinigami responsible for handing out punishments and deciding what to do for rogue shinigami. The Sotaicho (Captain Commander) has total authority over the limit restrictions placed on captains and vice captains, and may use it as seen fit.
All members of this division regardless of rank are allowed to create missions.
This division is the head of Gotei 13 and the ones responsible for relaying Central 46 orders, dealing with Soul Society law and monitoring the other divisions. The captain of the 1st Division is also the head of all other captains and the leader of Gotei 13, given the rank of General Commander. Likewise, the 1st Division vice-captain is leader of the vice-captains and has authority over all vice-captains, next to their own captains and the General Commander.
This division has the least number of shinigami.

They also handle all undercover operations regarding Seireitei security.Special Forces applicants take additional two-year training after Shinigami Academy.

::3rd Division, Intelligence & Information::

Adding to this, they are in charge of the jigokuchou monitoring and message system

::4th Division, Medical Assistance & Supply::
Perk: You get 1 extra life. Your character can be killed once and not die in RP. This can only be used ONCE. You are the only group allowed to learn and create healing kido.
The 4th Division deals with the brunt of the healing when it comes to shinigami or other spiritual entities. While the shinigami in this division use medicines for their healing, they do have the ability to use their energies for curative purposes, something unique to those that are in or have been in the 4th Division, because the average shinigami can only use their power for combat.
This unit is assigned many of the menial tasks in the Soul Society, such as cleaning the subterranean canals located under the Seireitei. Additionally, this particular division is considered the lowest in the Gotei 13 hierarchy, albeit the fact that they heal almost all the injured in the Soul Society. 4th Division members are taken from the Shinigami Academy at their third year, after proving exceptional, non-violent reiatsu, and then take an additional study of four years to become medics.

To learn healing type Kido, they must work with a 4th Division member for at least 3 Topics. The Gobantai member will use this experience to pick up on the art of healing.

The captain of the 5th Division is also captain of the Kidou Corps; one of Soul Society’s two other military fractions except for the Gotei 13. Members of the 5th are in general kidou experts, and are often stationed together with 11th Division members, 2nd Division assassins as well as 4th Division healers to form an all-around military group. They are also responsible for all sealing and magical workings inside Soul Society, as well as recording and storing any new kidou. Members of the Kidou Corps are handpicked from the best kidou-users of the shinigami, and undergo additional training

Their division has the most holding cells, which is used to detain criminal offenders until they are judged.

::7th Division, Seireitei-Rukongai Diplomacy::
7th Division members are considered to more peace loving and the most level headed shinigami. They have immunity to all types of illusions and sensory deception abilities.
The 7th Division maintains peace between Seireitei and Rukongai.

The 8th Division is the mass reinforcement division. Their shinigami are split into groups that are talented in kidou, offensive tactics, or defensive tactics. When any of the other divisions require extra shinigami or reinforcements, the 8th is the division they turn to first.
Aside from the 11th and 13th, the 8th Division has the most amount of shinigami

They also prevent important information from leaking into Rukongai, especially information that could cause an uproar or mass panic. Adding to this, they are also in charge of dealing with tactics and warfare against intelligent beings and massive hollow gatherings, and are the ones responsible for any counter tactics when Seireitei is under attack. 9th Division is also in charge of the memory-replacing that has to be done after shinigami fight in the living world.

::10th Division, Large-Scale Operations::
10 division members are the team leaders. All group missions will be lead by a 10th division member regardless of rank(Excluding if the mission has a captain involved). This gives that shinigami the ability to command EVERYONE on the mission. Failure to listen will result in consequences. They also gain a 15% Bonus for completing Missions, and also one free Shikai/Bankai technique.
The 10th Division is in charge of planning, coordinating, and executing large missions. Everything is run through their division first, and if approved, the 10th Division gathers the required shinigami from each division, assembles them, assigns duties, plans the attack, coordinate the shinigami according to the mission, execute the attack, and then keep maintenance over it. That includes sending out more reinforcements and information regarding the mission.

::11th Division, Offensive Tactics::
11th Division members will gain the efficiency to ignore their damage wounds for 3 posts, their attacks deal more damage making them unable to be blocked or reflected for 3 posts. This can be activated at any time. This effect must be activated in OOC during the fight expressing the use of the 11 Division perk. Failure to activate this prior to your attacks or damage recieved will result in a void.
The 11th Division is the frontlines. They are the most skilled in physical combat and work mainly with other divisions. They rarely work on their own since they currently lack much coordination. During times of danger, the 11th Division is flooded out in mass numbers to immediately subdue problems, which include invasions of Seireitei. The 11th Division works with nearly every other division, since they are the most powerful and offer the most defense and offense. 11th is the division with the largest number of shinigami. (It is also the division with the highest mortality rate.)

::13th Division, Defensive Tactics & Seireitei Protection::
The 13th Division members are the only other shinigami that are able to create barrier/Capture Type Kido spells for only half the normal price (Training Cost). These Barrier/Capture type Kido are spells similar to Hachigen’s unnamed Kido spells used in the Manga/Anime.
The 13th Division is the ones that actually send out patrols on a daily, frequent basis to survey Seireitei. If a threat occurs, they find and take care of it, sometimes with help from other divisions. They also work together with various divisions.
If a threat is a large enough, the 13th Division is in charge of sending out shinigami, assembling them, assigning them duties, and other things. Their job is similar to the 10th, except on a smaller basis.

If you leave a division for any reason, you lose that division perk
