Hey man. I was hoping that you could help me work out some ideas for my character. I decided that I want it to be some sort of melee-type zanpakuto, using attacks similar to that of Getsuga Tensho. It can also summon Reishi wolves, similar to Coyote Starkk (just in case you didn't remember) and they basically have the same effect. Any ideas? :D
Well already we can make a change to the Getsuga Tensho in shape
-Getsuga Tensho is in the form of a slash wave. For your technique make it look like an actual wolf head is shot out, bearing its fangs at the opponent. This way it also acts as an attack but some sort of constricting attack if the "wolf" bites the opponent successfully. Remember the former espada Ichigo fought? Picture that.
-Silver Claw: An ability that augments the blade of the zanpakuto, making it stronger and quicker then previously. Wounds created from this ability only "fuel the wolf" and make it stronger.
-Enhanced Senses: Because of the wolf like abilities all senses such as eyesight, smell, taste, hearing, and even intent are increased.
-Mend the blood (just some minor names): A small but quick healing ability that can be applied on wounds. The flat edge of the sword placed over the wounded area helps the wound close faster. Depending on future actions taken it can reopen the wounds. This helps prevent near-fatal wounds from killing you.
I actually like a lot of those moves. Thanks a bunch for coming through for me man; I have been so busy lately that I haven't really thought about any of these (and some are pretty obvious wolf based techniques too). :P
I guess that it worked out fairly well for you though. :P I also came up with the idea that his family raises wolves for various purposes, kind of like the Inuzuka Clan, although not for battle (mostly tracking and some battle).
I also had an idea that, instead of making Takeshi and Taiga (my character in beta) Souls, we could instead make them Humans who possess the powers they did when they were souls. Hear me out...
I got the idea when making the Soul Society (Prodigy) page. I saw on one part that people who die in the Human World and do not become hollows are sent to the Soul Society; everyone knows that. When a soul dies, though, they are reincarnated back into the human world with no recollection of their life as a soul. Now, what if the Soul King (or some other outside entity) let a very rare few number of souls retain their powers they had as Shinigami. Perhaps the Soul had a significant number of contributions to the Soul Society that could not be ignored or their zanpakuto (being extenctions of the soul) were so powerful that they remained with the soul, even after reincarnation.
As for their memories, those would be mostly lost; they might have flash images of their previous life but nothing too great. They could unlock the power of those Zanpakuto through training as a human. So what do you think?
So you would want them to be like Ichigo? Capable of entering Soul Reaper form at will? Well I was already making someone like that who basically was "one of the first" among souls ; because of this the character is constantly reincarnated through the cycle of life and death but always retains his original form, strength, and memories.
Not exactly. Ichigo has no memory of his past life and the powers he has now are original to him. What I am refering to is more like the circumstance that you mention afterwards; one of the "original souls". Rather, they are humans whose souls have retained the same powers that their Shinigami form has possessed.
Also, it would be hard enough for a soul to retain it's zanpakuto/powers (given that it has never happened before in the canon), let alone the same form and memories. I mean, I like the concept, don't get me wrong, but my concept is based more on Avatar/Legend of Korra, which is a little more relastic (granted that it is still a fictional aspect, regardless). :P
Oh I see. I guess the only difference from my concept is
Aang -> Reincarnates -> Aang is reborn again.
Thats how my other character is going to work out. Basically I'm making him the "King of Kishi". That way we would have the Soul King and Flesh King.
Because he is the "King of Flesh" he creates all that is "Physical". Much like the Soul King who resides in Soul Society in the heavens. The Flesh King's palace resides in the Human World within the depths of the earth. Much like the Soul King he also has a quick means of transportation.
Soul King and Flesh King, eh? Then I will have to make mine the Burger King. XD And techniqcally it is not Aang, it is Wan and Raava since he was the first. Korra is Aang, Aaang is Roku, Roku is the one before and so on and so forth.
I'm pretty much going to be using Gilgamesh for the "King of Flesh".
Oh i know. I just meant if the "Flesh King" were to ever die he would simply be reincarnated by the "Soul King" as there is a need to keep the balance of Kishi and Reishi. Much like if the Soul Kings body was destroyed but a fraction of his spirit remained, The King of Flesh would manifest a new body for him to inhabit.
So it would be "King of Flesh" -> Reincarnated -> "King of Flesh" (100% the same before he died/killed/etc)
Specters. As you can see, they use Spirit Weapons, like Quincy and they have energy called Ectoplasm. It is based of of Danny Phantom (not sure if you saw that as a kid or not) but I am having a difficult time explaining it in terms of Bleach. I have pert of it done, but I am not sure if it makes sense in terms of Bleach. Care to take a look please?
I didn't have a childhood, So i didn't get to watch that show about him being half-man half-ghost and developing super ghost powers, while fighting against a person named vlad.
What I'm thinking is that, if you are going for the whole "infected" route, is that perhaps the humans are infected by a Soul when they are going through Encroachment. It would make the requirements for becoming a specter more specific, sorta like fullbring when the mother had to be attacked.
1) Human had to be somewhat spiritually aware, enough to at least touch a ghost.
2) Had to be near a Plus when they are going through Encroachment.
The reason I think Encroachment would work is because its actual step from going from a 'Human' to a "Hollow". So it would be a nice inbetween.
