Shinigami
Shinigami

In the Second Division's training ground there was a bit of an odd sight. Given that the Shinigami that occupied the area were also members of the Onmitsukido themselves, they were used to seeing some weird stuff, but this kind of took the cake. What was an Academy student doing here, and how the Hell did he have such oppressive reiatsu? Given that the latest reports said that the semester had only just started two weeks prior, and there was confirmation that no one had achieved Shikai even in the Special Advanced Class, as such a thing at this early stage would be ridiculous, it could be also be assumed based on prior occurrences that the strongest in the entire school might barely scrape by a Lieutenant's level of strength. This, however? The energy that the man was casually exerting was enough to match or even exceed most Captains in Bankai. Hell, he might even have as much as their own Captain, a woman known to be one of the strongest Captains in the Gotei 13.

Graven, for his part, was waiting for Sakura Senba, the Captain of the Second Division, as a "punishment". It was determined, after his accidental dismemberment of a classmate, that he needed a stronger sparring partner if he was ever going to truly achieve his latent potential. Thus, he was referred here, to a woman who graciously volunteered her time when asked.

Something else had been bothering him as of late, too, and it was something he was hoping could be resolved in this spar. He had regained quite a few of the memories that lay latent in his muscles and reiryoku, but there seemed to be a block on his abilities. He had attempted to release his power, but to no avail. He tried to use Jinzen, but all he could get was the presence of someone there, watching him and trying to speak. It was disconcerting, and he hoped that the familiar stress of combat could bring the voice into clarity. After all, he was ironically never more at peace than he was in battle.

Once the Captain had entered, he would give her a smile and utter a short greeting before taking on a relatively serious expression, his eyes seeming to defocus and look past his opponent. In a deceptively light tone of voice, he would ask the most important question at the moment, something which wiped away all thoughts of his own handicap. "Shall we begin, ma'am?"

As he spoke, he slid one foot back and gripped his Asauchi loosely on the handle and tightly on the sheath in a perfectly-adapted Iaido stance, clearly willing to allow her to make the first move yet in the perfect position to react. Hopefully this could be a workout for both of them.

"Second Squadron, you need to spread out more. I could take you all out with a single Kidou from here." Turning to the other direction, the pink-haired woman continued. "First Squadron, you are completely out of position. I shouldn't see any of you, why do I see all of you?" She turned back once more. "Third Squadron, attack. Fourth, Flank. First, Countflank Fourth. Second, Survive." The attacks were quick but with everyone knowing their jobs, it all began when Third Squadron attacked.

They immediately got countered by Fouth who got countered by First, and in the end only a single member of Second Squadron was left standing. Nodding, Sakura motioned for them to get cleaned up as they were done for the day, and checked her phone's calendar to realize that the spar with Graven was supposed to have started four minutes ago. With a few Shunpos, Sakura arrived in a blitz, kicking up leaves in her wake.

"Sorry about that, Fel. Captain's duties." She was about to ask if he'd made any progress on his Shikai, but he simply asked if she was ready to begin. Shrugging her shoulders and dismissing the comment, Sakura took her Sendo Genkotsu stance, something that Graven would likely have never seen before due to its complexity and rarity. Cracking her neck once, she watched Graven carefully. His stance was secure, solid, and well put together. Considering his proficiency with his claws as an Arrancar, she was surprised he was so good at that; still, his age made up for it, she assumed.

For a long time, nearly four minutes, neither party moved. Sakura was studying him and he was studying her, both waiting on the other to make the first move. She wondered if Graven would notice that she had no Zanpakutou in her possession, as she'd given her original away to her closest friend Kaede Melk. That wouldn't matter though, as if Graven had been practicing his studies in class like he should, he'd know all about Sakura's 'special case'.

Since he didn't have his Shikai yet, she wouldn't activate that. Not yet. She needed to make him stress for it, so it would accelerate the issue. Closing her eyes and opening her senses, she breathed slowly to calm her heart and opened them, staring back at Graven.

"Alright, Fel. You're going to learn your Shikai today; and once you do, I have a sinking suspicion that you'll master it in no time. I've trained hundreds of Shinigami in learning theirs, and their Bankais... I don't think I'll have to push you once I get you started." Silently casting Bakudo 1: Sai, Sakura immediately used Shunpo to close the distance as quick as she could and fire off a flurry of punches at Graven, not holding back whatsoever, with him unable to use that Iaidou Stance of his with his hands behind his back at the beginning, even if he broke out quickly.

As the two of them had a stand-off, Graven took his time to analyze his opponent as much as possible. She wasn't carrying a Zanpakuto, and her musculature was more lean than someone who specialized in swordsmanship anyway. If he had to guess, she focused more on speed and agility to overwhelm her opponent physically. Not, of course, that she couldn't land a devastating blow, but it would likely rely more on technique than raw brute strength to achieve the same amount of force. One of the most glaring things was, of course, her odd stance. It was extremely fluid and bordered on perfection. Offensively there were no angles left uncovered, defensively there were no real openings to be found. At first he was rather confused, simply due to the unusual nature of the style, but the familiar spike of mental strain came before the image of an interesting black-haired woman came through, one he had fought in the past that used the same odd stance.

The second thing he noted about his opponent was her particular ability that circumvented the need for a Zanpakuto, a technique vaguely covered in class as an invention that combined Kidou and Hakuda. The lack of information on such a thing was annoying, but frankly it didn't matter too much at the moment, so he let it go.

The third thing? She was a fairly attractive lady. The pink hair and soft features belied the steel of her eyes. Of course, he couldn't go much further into that train of thought as she flashed forward at an incredible speed after explaining the purpose of the exercise. While he was certainly able to keep up at this level, he was incapable of drawing his blade with the fierce assault, ESPECIALLY when she had opened up the entire affair by binding his arms behind his back, resulting in his hilariously trying to weave around like a demented worm while flexing his muscles enough spiritually to break the Bakudo. This, of course, lead into her greatest strength. A Hakuda fight wasn't something that the former Hollow would have been capable of winning against her, and he knew it. Thus, as he just managed to dodge and block her assault due to recognition of the style, he ducked under a particularly nasty straight and drew his katana in a backhanded manner with his left hand, thrusting forward with the pommel before lashing out with his left foot in a kick to her right knee. Call him old-fashioned, but battle was supposed to be a brutal affair.

Launching into a Shunpo off from his planted foot, he managed to steady himself and realign before dashing forward and drawing his blade in an instant, the upwards strike being amplified by his use of leverage in the sheath and culminating in one of his favorite techniques so far, coincidentally the one he had used on his classmate on accident. Damned instincts. "Hitotsume: Nadegiri."

The strike itself happened at blinding speed, and most opponents wouldn't even realize what had happened until it was too late. Of course, Sakura wasn't most opponents, so he had full faith that she'd manage to react in time to not be injured horrifically. Of course, this also meant that her poor training ground would likely have a new crevice leading to the outer wall if she dodged, a wall which would have to be repaired due to a gaping slice out of it.

Bringing his blade back around and getting into a balanced stance, Graven himself would flick the sword low in a feint before arcing it around to the complete other side, aimed towards the temple only to drop and hook the blade at the last moment to come up into his sparring partner's armpit. Without the use of an arm, Sakura would likely have difficulty launching another assault like she had, and hopefully wouldn't be able to fix her reiatsu enough to use Shunko. At least, that was the hope.

He dodged most of her assault and blocked the rest, expected of someone who'd fought Rena Lisola in the past. The biggest weakness of Sakura's Sendo Genkotsu was the fact that she wasn't a natural master of it like Rena herself; Sakura's version was a carefully studied and practiced replica of Rena's version, which meant that people who'd fought Rena would know her styles. He drew his blade after breaking from Sai and thrust with his pomel, but Sakura caught it and pushed off with her hand, avoiding his kick to her knee in the process.

As she landed, he dashed with Shunpo to close in and then used a technique she recognized as standard but difficult to pull off. In an instant, her eyes lit up as she whispered Inazuma Kettou's name. The attack was instantly blocked and parried, with Sakura's hand moving out at the same speed to counter the attack, aimed at Graven's gut. Without Inazuma's abilities, she knew she'd be unable to counter that so effectively, but at least she also knew that she could have likely avoided it anyway. Luckily, she countered instead.

Regardless of the outcome of that counter, Sakura would close back in and release another flurry of punches and kicks, using her entire body as a weapon, attempting to trip him onto the ground and prevent him from countering back as much as she could. None of these hits were with enough force to kill the boy, but she expected that enough of them would hit to at least make him take this seriously. She could feel his spiritual pressure over her own, which meant that he was incredibly powerful, especially for someone who started their classes two weeks ago.

Eventually the flurry would come to a close and Sakura would back off, completely calm with a normal heartbeat and not a bead of sweat on her brow. She hoped Graven couldn't say the same as she returned to her Sendo Genkotsu stance and nodded at him, allowing him to take the initial offense this time around.

[完璧な調和]Perfect Harmony [Passive]
Ability Description: Although this could be taken as a constantly released Shikai, Perfect Harmony is truly just a level of Harmony between Inazuma Kettou and Sakura herself which allows Sakura to access her Shikai techniques even without her Zanpakutou on her person. While she does not get the boosts from actually using Shikai, Sakura does have the harmony with Inazuma Kettou required to use any of the Shikai techniques at any time.

[雷が速い]Lightning Quick
Once every 4 posts, any one physical attack which would hit Sakura is instead countered, deflected, or blocked, depending on if it was from her front, sides, or rear, respectively. This occurs due to a constant stream of reiatsu flowing through Sakura's body, giving her abnormally fast reflexes, but it takes a few moments to recharge after being used.

Graven's eyes opened in shock as she completely countered his strike, a fist rocketing into his gut before he had time to pull his blade back. Stepping backwards as a slight trickle of blood came from the corner of his mouth, he was almost caught completely off-guard by Sakura's continued assault. Weaving around the attacks once more, his eyes constantly seeming to be flicking almost randomly, the student grit his teeth and blocked or deflected any strikes that managed to come too close for comfort with either his forearms or the flat of his blade. As it finally ended, he came out of it not completely unscathed.

Both arms from the elbow to the wrist were scuffed and light bruises began showing. He wasn't breathing hard or anything, or at least not because of being worn down. It was hard to take a breath in when he was still recovering from being winded by that strike to his stomach. Speaking of which, he turned his head to the side and spat out a glob of blood. He wouldn't be surprised if he had a small amount of internal bleeding from a hit like that at close range, and he was definitely going to feel it in the morning. At least the adrenaline was keeping the pain down at the moment. Before he could ponder exactly how he had gotten himself into this situation, the world shifted and went monochrome before a familiar being walked into his vision, one who he swore he had seen before but could not place. The man began speaking in Graven's voice, but it had an eerie monotone to it, and seemed almost disappointed. "Pathetic. Did you honestly think that you could defeat her as you are now? You are a shadow of what you once were, and what you could be. Why should I give you my strength, OUR strength, if you are going to waste it once more?"

So THIS was Graven's Zanpakuto? It was what he saw every day when he looked in the mirror. The skin was a bit deeper, the eyes were a hellish red, and the markings were a change, but this was like looking into an old reflection. Was...Was this him? As soon as he had come to the realization, the Zanpakuto let out a mirthless chuckle. "So, I see you've figured it out. I'm a part of you, just as any other Zanpakuto. We just so happen to be a unique case. After all, none of the other Arrancar that have been purified have become Shinigami. Most likely don't even remember anything at all. I'll make a deal with you. Strike her once, prove to me that you aren't worthless, and I'll stop restraining your power."

With that, the Zanpakuto disappeared and color came back to the world. Sakura had retaken her stance, and was polite enough to wait for him to make the first move this time. Face smiling, Graven would sheathe his Asauchi and get into a rather aggressive stance, letting out a breath before speaking, his reiatsu beginning to weigh down properly on the area as he put his all into the fight. "I'm sorry, Captain Senba. I haven't been taking this as seriously as I should. Allow me to remedy this. Senmaioroshi."

With that, he launched forward, drawing his sword and slashing in a veritable maelstrom of strikes fast enough that they began to blur together before he landed on the other side of her, breathing slightly harder before catching his breath and waiting for a counterattack to come, if there was to be one.

In a flash, Sakura's arms became the same color as Graven's Asauchi, and she used them and her legs to block the majority of the hits, dodging the last one from hitting her neck within literal plancks. Smiling as Graven was finally trying to actually hit her instead of screw around, Sakura dashed forward and grabbed Graven's blade with her right hand, thrusting her open palm into his chest. Since her arms were invulnerable to the blade's edge, she held on tightly with the hope of disarming the young man (even though he was older than she was).

If it worked, Sakura would flick the blade back to him so he could catch it, then take her stance once more. If it didn't, she'd simply smile and take her stance regardless.

Either way, Sakura would suddenly realize her cheek was bleeding. Apparently one of Graven's attacks managed to bypass her blocking and caused her to lose some blood. Smiling, she would wipe it off casually and narrow her gaze, hoping that Graven's bloodlust would do the rest. If it didn't, then she'd probably start beating the shit out of him; if it did, then she'd watch carefully and be ready to activate Shunkou in a heartbeat.

Graven's eyes narrowed as his opponent dashed forward and grabbed his sword, pulling one direction as she thrust out with an open-palm strike. Vaulting into a back hand spring to avoid it, the man landed on his feet and skidded before coming to a stop. Catching his Asauchi as Sakura tossed it back to him, he spun it in his fingers once or twice just to remove the momentum before noticing something at the same time as she did. Her cheek was bleeding from a shallow cut. As she smiled at him, he heard a slight chuckle in the back of his head before a rush of something hit him. It wasn't everything, there were no gritty details and even entire events were missing. Essentially it was a basic outline, but even that was more than before.

He remembered

His face cracking into a smirk as he brought his Zanpakuto in front of him, he placed his fingertips on the edge of the blade before dragging them across in a sharp motion, calling out a command in an usual, almost enthralling language. "Risa, Gramr."

Instead of blood, an odd black substance sprayed from his fingers and built up onto his Zanpakuto, spreading until it finished transforming. The wrapping had turned pitch black, and had extended to around fourteen inches, while the blade itself had grown to a dominating six feet in length. Visually, there was no indication to it's true power, but something intimidating could be noted in the surrounding area. Graven's reiatsu had begun pressing down even harder, and had seemed to have expanded even further. The density was absolutely breathtaking, and any of the Onmitsukido that had decided to watch their Captain in her spar would have trouble breathing, and might even be forced to their knees.

Bringing his nodachi in front of him and gripping it in both hands almost lazily, Graven smiled even wider. "Well, Captain Senba, I suppose it's your turn to begin, isn't it?"

Snarky bastard.

"Welcome to your Shikai, Fel." Smiling, Sakura relaxed her stance and began to walk around Graven in a circle, slowly enough that by the time she finished speaking she would be exactly where she started.

"For a long time, it was believed that Shinigami had two release states: Shikai, which is where you currently are, and Bankai. A Shikai was learned by understanding your Zanpakutou, knowing their name and trusting them; a Bankai, on the other hand, for a while, was considered extremely difficult. It used to require manifesting your Zanpakutou Spirit in the real world, and defeating them in a fight. At least, that's what we thought." She kept her eyes on him, knowing he wouldn't strike until she began.

"Then, a few years ago, our Captain Commander Rena Lisola discovered an entirely new release state. We called it Toukai. In truth, we don't really understand how it's developed. It simply... happens. Not every Shinigami is capable of it, either, but all those who are capable of it are either Captains or Lieutenants, and are highly reknowned for their skills." She was halfway around him now, the opposite of where she was when she began.

"Around the time Rena discovered Toukai, we had an unfortunate issue with some Sinners. They broke out, and I was among the Shinigami who answered the situation. In that fight... I was destroyed. Not physically, mind you, but completely mentally. See, the Sinner I fought, it turns out he was related to Rena Lisola herself; meaning, I was nowhere near strong enough to do it, and he ended up shattering my Bankai. Or, more accurately, he ate it." She smiled at the terminology, though the knowledge still hurt her.

"When a Bankai is destroyed, it can never be fixed. Not all the way. Sometimes it can be repaired to nearly 90% of its original power, but never fully. All Shinigami are aware of this. Mine was destroyed before I ever unlocked Toukai, and as such I never would. I mastered my Shikai to the point where I don't even need to carry my Zanpakutou around with me anymore, as I'm sure you no doubt have noticed." She was almost back where she started.

"That being said, Graven Fel... do you know why I'm still regarded as one of the strongest Captains the Gotei currently has? I'm aware the Academy covers it minorly, a special technique I developed to compensate for my Bankai. Technically, that's not true; I'd developed it long before I lost my Bankai, but due to the Sinner Incursion, I mastered the technique. It's an energy feedback loop that funnels my reiatsu back through my body, vastly augmenting my physical abilities. It's called..."

Sakura held her right arm straight out, her eyes lighting up as her full reiatsu was released; it paled in comparison to Graven's, but she figured he wouldn't sense it anyway. Suddenly, an electrical energy began to form and spark off her arm as a visible aura appeared on her body, taking on a feint yellow color, her eyes glowing to match it.

"Shunkou." Dashing forward far faster than she'd been before with Shunpo, Sakura thrust her open palm at Graven's gut in an attempt to show him her speed, though the attack wasn't meant to particularly damage him. The next flurry of blows, however, were; several punches to the head, gut, arms and legs, ending with a roundhouse kick to his head, as she let him back off if he wanted to, or she'd counter him from there.

The scary part was the complete lack of sweat or breathlessness from her; she was completely calm right now.

She did this for a living, after all.

Graven, for his part, kept his eyes on his opponent, listening to her explanation. Admittedly, the basic information about Bankai was something that had already been covered briefly in the crash course on Zanpakuto in the Academy, even if none of the teachers truly had it and were only able to give basic information on what it was, but Toukai was something completely unknown to him. That is, until a flash of two Captains fighting desperately against him came to the forefront, although their faces were relatively obscured. Perhaps he HAD seen it before. In that case, then all he needed to do in order to achieve such a level was train for it, so long as he had the aptitude? Listening to Gramr hum disapprovingly in the back of his head, Graven figured that maybe that wasn't it. Hell, maybe from his Zanpakuto's reactions he knew something Sakura didn't.

Once his opponent had crossed in front of him, and activated her Shunko, Graven's eyes focused solely on her for the first time in the fight, albeit in shock. Her movements began to blur slightly, and while he could still see her, it was as if he were moving through water himself. Bringing his Zanpakuto up, he was hardly able to deflect the palm strike in time before the flurry began. Gritting his teeth, he was barely capable of deflecting many of them, with several strikes getting through his guard. Oddly enough, they didn't have quite as much force on them as they should have, as if they had struck a barrier before hitting his body. A brief flash of information told him of his capabilities, and giving a genuine smile even in the midst of such an assault, Graven's body began to trail a black mist as his speed grew enough to react better to his opponent's, ducking under the roundhouse kick to his head and bringing his blade across, surrounded in black energy before letting loose in an upwards diagonal strike that lashed outwards in a crescent of energy that extended twenty meters before evaporating.

Using Shunpo to back out of Sakura's range, Graven would reestablish his stance and take a mental evaluation of the situation. Allowing his eyes to gain their almost-unfocused appearance once more, flicking across his opponent in a manner that suggested he was looking at something only he could see, the same black mist that trailed his body began solidifying into a pair of chains about fifteen feet long each, both of which lashed out at Sakura. The one on Graven's right struck towards her head, while the left whipped towards her knee, both moving at the same speed that Graven's own body was.

It seemed that he was finally getting the hang of being a Shinigami.

He was having trouble even seeing her attacks, let alone defend from them. A majority of the flurry got through and hit him squarely, though she noticed a feint barrier on his body before the attacks connected, influencing that he had some form of defense. Neat. As his body emitted a black mist and he got faster, he ducked under her kick and released a wave of energy at her which she sidestepped and dodged as he backed up.

Then, things got interesting. He formed chains of black mist and lashed out at her with them, one at her head and one at her knee. Since they were now in a very real fight, Sakura wasn't going to let these hit and defend from there; she jumped and spun her body to avoid being hit by the chains, landing on her hands and dashing towards him again as she flipped back over and attempted to bring her heel down squarely on his head in an axe kick, a technique she learned from Rena Lisola.

Regardless of the outcome of that attack, Sakura would land and jump backwards before activating her Lightning Strike Armor, her body being covered in lightning as it bounced off the air and ground, centralizing on her. She focused her reiatsu into her fist, and punched the air ten times in a very rapid span, releasing bursts of lightning energy directly at Graven's position or where he'd be, hopefully preventing him from dodging all of them, after which she'd shunpo back in and punch his gut into the ground; or try to.

[瞬閧]Shunkou
Ability Description: An advanced battle technique which combines the physical techniques of Hakuda and the spell-based techniques of Kidou, Shunkou is the peak of Hakuda and Hohou techniques. Shunkou comes in natural elements such as lightning or wind, based on the user's personality and reiatsu. When active, the technique rips apart the fabric on the user's back and arms as they're flooded with Kidou. Sakura's active element can be changed once every post, but is always activated in Lightning-Element. Sakura's mastery of this ability is instantly shown, as it will not destroy and of her clothing when used.

[RAITON] - Lightning
x4 Speed - While this is active, Shunko has a feint yellow color.

[完璧な調和]Perfect Harmony [Passive]
Ability Description: Although this could be taken as a constantly released Shikai, Perfect Harmony is truly just a level of Harmony between Inazuma Kettou and Sakura herself which allows Sakura to access her Shikai techniques even without her Zanpakutou on her person. While she does not get the boosts from actually using Shikai, Sakura does have the harmony with Inazuma Kettou required to use any of the Shikai techniques at any time.

[雷撃の鎧]Lightning Strike Armor
This technique allows Sakura to cover her body in lightning. While this provides no explicit defense, it does increase her offensive capabilities dramatically, with everything she touches being electrocuted as though struck by lightning. This technique lasts for 3 posts with a 5 post cooldown.

[雷玉]Lightning Ball
By compressing her reiatsu in her fists, Sakura can unleash a ball of pure lightning with the destructive force and speed of a Bala, released by throwing a punch. While this is normally used for ranged combat, Sakura can also use this in melee to augment her punching. This technique has no cooldown, but can only be fired a maximum of 20 times per post.

COOLDOWNS
