This arc is a fan fiction occuring prior to the events of the Return From Exile arc . The focal Characters are the exiled Akashi Kuchiki and the remnants of an exploration team sent by soul society; these shingami include Toshio Saito, Yuudai Oshiro, Hanayo Sabashi and her brother Kiyoshi Sabashi.
The events of this arc are a prequel to those found in my other arc. As always I try to honor the spirit of Bleach, by not over powering my characters or using stories as a chance to show off how tough a shinigami I can imagine. Leave comments on my talk page
