He hates fighting and rather get defeated then attack, however he will protect those close to him if angered enough. He proves to have the skills of a Lieutenant, or maybe even a Captain but does not show case his true skills.

Shunpo Expert- He is extremly skilled at Shunpo and moves with ease. He applies his Shunpo to combat to take opponents out quickly.
Hōshō's Zanpakuto is called Inshuheki (lit. Alcoholic Addiction) and is sealed as a wakizashi with a bronze square guard and bronze handle wrapped in a white bandage. The sheath is augmented with multiple diamond like patterns and a hole in the middle of both sides. The release phrase is Zenpyou (lit. Take all the Rest you Need).
Shikai- In Shikai, Inshuheki becomes a set tonfa. They have long cylindrical bodies with handles on opposite sides. Hosho wields them in an unorthodox manner. He wields them like one would wield a gun, and only somtimes wields them normally. The bodies are wrapped in a bronze metal and the handles have a thin strip like pattern on them.
Meitei (lit. Intoxication)- Hosho will constantly hit the opponent with the tonfa until they go into a state of "intoxication". Their movments will be shortend and their thought process will halt.
Hebereke ofu Ukiyo (lit. Drunk off Life)- Hosho will take a relazed persona and smile. He will then appear behind the enemy, and break their rib cage with a cross hit with his tonfa. He will then hit them over the head, doing major damage.
