Name: [Katsumi Shōkō (Katsumi meaning Vigorous Beauty and Shōkō meaning Illuminated)]
Alias: [The Ice Queen]
Real Age: [388]
Phys. Age: [28]
Gender: [Female]
Personality: [To gain a alias like the Ice Queen speaks a lot about her as a person. She is cold both figuratively and literally in terms of her unique reiatsu. She is to say, not really approachable and so, doesn't tend to make friends too well. A lot of the time, she doesn't really emotionally express herself openly with some saying she doesn't even possess a heart akin to a hollow. Yet, she is not beyond feeling, but it is very rare to see it. A lot of the time, it will simply be annoyance at something or someone. She can become quite intense and even angry if she feels particularly strongly about something. She tends to speak in a stern english accent with very little emotion behind it besides what could come across as a upper class disgust at those she speaks to besides other lieutenants and captains. She remains professional for the most part and rarely shows any indication that things are bothering her, even if she has things on her mind.

She is also very dedicated to the squad and, if she likes the captain, will also be fiercely loyal to her captain, even going so far as to break rules and knock people down if something happens to her captain.

In her off time, she spends her time taking runs around the seireitei, talking to her zanpakuto spirit in her inner world and will also dabble in origami, although a lot of the time, she ends up making snowflakes, even if she's trying to make a crane for example. She likes iced coffee and Liang Pi; A cold springy noodle dish seasoned with a tangy, spicy, savoury sauce. She dislikes anything spicy and hard liquor like Vodka.

In Battle, she remains as cold and calculating as she is normally; being able to read a opponent's movements and actions to come up with a appropriate course of action to best deal with her opponent. When engaging, she will mix flash step with kido and Zanjutsu to overwelm opponents and to push them so they don't get a chance to get a thought it. She prefers to have control over the battlefield and will take any advantage she can get. In shikai, she will focus on keeping opponent within the effective area of her shikai's snow and shocking her opponent with the snow. She will primarily focus on stunning the opponent with both her lightning abilities in shikai and her range of bakudo before either terminating them or if she needs to get information from her target, torturing them until she gets the intel she needs.

As the lieutenant of squad 3, she is very well versed in how to break someone's will and gather the intel she needs by any means necessary. From intense questioning to physical torture; to those she tortures and those watching, she is a unfeeling monster in terms of getting what she needs from a target.]

Height: [5'10]
Weight: [185 lb (83.9 kg)]
Physical Traits: [she is a fairly, well-built woman with long blonde hair with the back done in a braided ponytail. She possesses a 38C-cup breast size. She had piercing ice blue that always appear clouded. She is about 5'10 and wore the typical shinigami uniform, with her lieutenant's badge on her left arm, tied on with an ice blue ribbon. One deviation from the normal uniform was instead of the normal pants, they were a knee-length black skirt with the top of her shihakushō acting like a coat would as it was split down the front so if they blew upwards, it would lift from either side. Her shitagi was also ice blue and she wore ice blue flats, similar to the stealth force, but designed with snowflakes going around the shoe. And lastly, her zanpakuto was kept by her side, held there by a thick silk blue belt that went around her waist.

When in Casual clothes, she wears a ice blue tank top with a large snowflake design covering across her chest and just below it. She then wears matching ice blue jogging bottoms with snowflakes falling down the outside of the trousers, all the way down to the bottom of them. With these, she wears plain ice blue socks and her flats from her normal uniform.

For formal occasions, she will wear a traditional ice blue kimono with snowflake patterns all over along with a theme of trees covered in snow during winter. She was a thick dark blue obi, ice blue tabi socks and traditional Geta with blue straps. She sometimes will also carry a chinese style ice-blue umbrella with a large snowflake coming from the centre and connecting to the rims of the umbrella.

Lastly, if she is in a gigai in the world of the living, she will wear ice blue track outfit consisting of a sports top, jogging bottoms with two dark blue lines doing down the sides, ice blue socks and ice blue and black trainers.]

General Fighting Style:  [When using just her sealed zanpakuto, Katsumi prefers to get in with her blade, using both speed to break the distance between her opponent and relentless strength in her strikes to force a opponent into the defensive. In summery, she prefers to be predator then prey in terms of combat. She will also mix her sword combat with kido, tending to use kido that can be used quickly and to great effect like Sho, Usuinageha, Byakurai and Sōkatsui and Bakudo like Sai, Geki and Shitotsu Sansen. Outside of combat, while on recon, she will bakudo like Kakushitsuijaku to make up for her low range sensing ability and using Kyokkō to hide her physical and spiritual presence for the target she is hunting, only dropping it to make a decisive strike on the target.

In Shikai, as mentioned in her personality, she will try to keep targets within the twenty meters that her shikai's snow ability can cover. She can also use her shikai to great effect on multiple opponents due to the snow being able to shock multiple targets as long as enough snow is covering them. She does also use her shikai in close combat, using her shikai to inflict stuns onto her opponent or doing it from range with her shikai's lightning blast. This way, she can maintain control of the battlefield and how it plays.

When working with a team, she can assist them when she can, although she prefers that if she uses shikai, that they keep away as to not get caught in her release. She can also relay tactical information via Tenteikūra and guide the battle that way.

During sparing matches with other shinigami, she takes the hard approach as she believes that if they are not faced with someone with the intent to kill, that they will not be ready to fight, so she will fight them as if she was fighting a enemy. She won't outright kill anyone during a spar, but wants them to be ready to face someone with the intent to kill so when it comes to it, they will fight instead of flee.]

Weaknesses: [Sensing, Hakuda, Hard to control Spiritual pressure.]
Ability Name: [Kokoro no kōri (Heart of Ice)]

Ability Name: [The Ice Queen's Reiatsu]
Ability Description: [This is a personal roleplay-centred ability; whenever she is releasing spiritual pressure, the area around her begins to freeze, producing a icy mist that causes nearby plants to freeze and die as well as causing trees to loose their leaves.]

Sealed Appearance:
Sealed weapon appearance:
[The sealed appearance of Denkō Sekka is a katana with a ice blue wrapping and a snowflake-shaped guard with two tassels coming off the end of the handle in a zig-zag patten with a ice blue colored sheath]
Zanpakutou Name: [Denkō Sekka (Lightning Snowflake)]
Release Command: ["Let the blizzard reign over the storm..." (Arashi Ue Fubuki chisei omashou)]
Spirit Appearance:
Spirit Appearance:

[Denkō Sekka appearances as a female samurai, with long blue hair with a long ponytail coming from the back of her head downwards and two vertical bangs on either side of her face.

She has a seemingly delicate yet imposing frame with the pale cream colored skin yet reflecting a lifetime of physical training, although her muscles don't physically appear, she can easily punch down walls in a single punch or kick. her body is also well defined, having a fairly large chest that is sometimes disguised under her clothes but if revealed, she has a C-cup breast size. She stands at five foot nine inches tall.

In terms of clothing, she wears a black shitagi, a light blue kosode with a blue stripe across the chest, dark blue trousers, white socks and waraji (sandals). She also keeps her sealed form of herself by her side but can also summon it to her side at will]
Spirit Personality: [Denkō Sekka is quite serious most of the time and she doesn't take fools well or people that undermine her for just being a female zanpakuto spirit; this makes her quite the feminist in this regard as she's always willing to prove her power and show she's just as good as any male zanpakuto.

Due to her nature, she's comes across as somewhat cold yet in a somewhat ironic twist, she has a very short fuse and quick to get angry and hotheaded quickly when annoyed, leading to her having a somewhat chaotic nature in general.

When it comes to her wielder, she is normally comes across as friendly but cold and liking to get to the point of the matter instead of having to beat around the bush, making her also impatient.]
Inner World:
Inner world appearance:

[Denkō Sekka's inner world is a large forest with one central path through the forest with several moons in the night sky above, there's a odd dimension to her inner world as if the wielder continues to walk down the path through the forest, they will eventually find themselves back where they started in a central clearing, this happens even if the wielder goes off the beaten path, they will always return to the center as the whole inner world is like a closed loop or other times, if the wielder walks the path, it will become seemingly endless as it creates another loop that practically keeps you in the same place, even if you were walking for a couple of miles.

These loops tend to lessen or increase depending on the wielder's state of mind and emotion state.]

Appearance: [(*See zanpakuto spirit appearance for general appearance of shikai*)
Upon release, the katana doesn't change too much but the blade gets coated in blue lightning and the blade itself glows with a deep blue light, the guard, handle and wrapping also change with the guard becoming circular with three spines, the smaller near the blade, the second getting bigger as it moves away with the larger ones facing the furthest away from the blade, the larger one is also connected to a second larger spine under the guard, making a sort of triangle only two-thirds complete, the wrapping is now changed from a ice blue to a creamy white with the diamond pattern in the wrapping having now cobalt blue wrapping under the creamy white wrapping and the end of the handle has lost the tassels for a four-point claw at the end.]
Abilities: The primary ability of Denkō Sekka is being able to summon snow around the current area of about a twenty meters radius, with this snow, the wielder can charge lightning through the snow via the lightning in the blade as the snow conducts electricity through it to electrify a opponent or several, depending on who is within range of the snow, even if it touches them, it can still be charged. The amount of snow on a target will relate to the amount of damage they take. For scale, someone with only a few flakes or a light coating on, say, a leg for example, will only get shocked equal in strength to either #4 with only a few and #10 to it only lightly covering one limb. But more heavier coatings on a limb will act more strength at the low 30s level per limb and if the whole body is covered, the shock would be equal to getting hit by Raikōhō. However, getting to that amount of snow covering a target is very rare, but in the cases it does, this is a appropriate scale. the blade can also discharge the lightning stored inside it as a blast of lightning or as a way to break a sword clash. The abilities are as follows:

-Atsumaru, Denkō Sekka (Gather, Denkō Sekka): This technique, after speaking the command phase "Gather..." with the name of the zanpakuto, causes electrically conductive snow to fall around a twenty meter radius, although this snow looks nothing different then ordinary snow, this combined with the other techniques or with lightning based kido can cause the snow hit by such techniques or kido to spark and electrocute anyone that is touching the snow apart from the wielder of Denkō Sekka.

-Taiden, Denkō Sekka (Charge, Denkō Sekka): by using the command "Charge..." along with the name of the zanpakuto, the blade charges with lightning energy, able to charge the snow around the area as well as give the blade an addition effect of being able to numb areas cut with the blade as the lightning cuts into the body and screws up the signals traveling into that area affected by the cut. A example would be if she cut into someone's arm while using this, it would make the arm unresponsive for a post as the stun doesn't last long.

-Kōgeki, Denkō Sekka (Strike, Denkō Sekka): This allows the wielder to fire a blast of blue lightning at a target either from the tip of the blade or from the side of the blade by calling the command "Strike..." along with the zanpakuto name. This is equal to kido in the high 40s range (45-49). Has one post cooldown.

-Sakebi, Denkō Sekka (Scream, Denkō Sekka): By calling the command "Scream..." along with the zanpakuto name, the blade discharges lightning from the blade in every direction in the effective area around the wielder either while the blade is held up or impaled into the ground to send it along the snow to target/s. the technique's effective area is five meters sounding the wielder. When hit, This blast is equal in strength to kido in the high 20s (25-29) and is more designed to push people away then doing anymore then light damage. (Example: Think Chidori Scream that Sasuke uses in the Naruto series).]
Boosts: [2x to Kido, Reiatsu, Spiritual Energy and Strength.]

New Name: [not Achieved]
Appearance: [What does your bankai look like? Character appearance changes, weapon changes, etc.]
Abilities: [What abilities does your character gain]
Boosts: [In this release, you get a 3x boost; you can apply this to as many 'stats' as you want (strength, speed, durability, etc) but they're diminishing returns; the more you have, the less effective they actually are.]

Side Notes: [She has secret agendas and has her own reasons to joining squad 3 and gaining access to the investigation and intel centre. To what end is [Redated]]
Roleplay Sample: ...She didn't really react as he releases his shikai "As I see, now it is my turn" she drew her blade and raised it up with its point towards the sky. Suddenly, the sky changed from a normal sunny day to a stormy sky as storm clouds formed around the area of the training area.

"Let the blizzard reign over the storm, Denkō Sekka (Lightning Snowflake)" she spoke aloud as lightning struck down, zapping her zanpakuto as her spiritual pressure surged as it transformed into its shikai state. the blade was now coated in blue lightning and the blade itself glows with a deep blue light, the guard, handle and wrapping also change with the guard becoming circular with three spines, the smaller near the blade, the second getting bigger as it moves away with the larger ones facing the furthest away from the blade, the larger one is also connected to a second larger spine under the guard, making a sort of triangle only two-thirds complete, the wrapping is now changed from a ice blue to a creamy white with the diamond pattern in the wrapping having now cobalt blue wrapping under the creamy white wrapping and the end of the handle has lost the tassels for a four-point claw at the end.
"I hope your ready, smart ass" she said as the storm clouds rumbled as it began to snow all around them...]

Who was I?:
Katsumi was born originally as Katie Salima in Cambridge, England in the year 1602 to the prodigious family of Salima. Her early years went by, but the more she grew into a young girl, the more noticeable that something with her. She never smiled and her eyes were always cold and distant, even if she spoke politely and as lady-like as was expected of a noble family's daughter. She attended a private school and, although excelling in her studies; found it difficult to make friends with the other children. In fact, in most cases, she brushed off any attempt to do so and kept to herself, only speaking to her peers if she needed to. She quick gathered a reputation of being cold hearted and unfriendly, even scary to some and so, she became more isolated; especially as her parents died when she turned 18 from a murder and it became a cold case, leaving her to inherit her family's fortune.

Eventually, as time past, she started to speak to others more and tried to be more open to varying levels of success. She found most of the women she talked weren't enough, that they lacked something. To what that was, she didn't know. She had also found interest in plays about crimes and murder, finding them interesting despite not being able to join the polite force since it was seen as unsightly for a woman to join the male dominated polite force.

When she turned 28 on the 8th of April; John Winthrop was inviting people to travel to the Americas and, feeling that if she went, she could find someone who could match her exacting standards. And so, using the family money, she bought herself passage onto a ship with her belongings and that afternoon, sailed out. Yet, this was to be the first and last voyage she would ever make as that night, they were attacked by bandit ships as they took control of the ship, killing any who resisted. When a few of the bandits came over to take her, she turned and showed the same, cold eyes she had for many years.

"You expect that I would be scared to face my maker from the likes of you? Do it then and don't waste anymore of my time of me being in your presence," She told him, but before he could ram her through with his sword, a hollow with the body of a lion, the wings of a bat and the tail of a scorpion can down onto the ship and its tail shot forwards straight through her abdomen, killing her and for a moment, the two looked into each others' eyes and she could see the creature that attacked her with her cold eyes before she fell over the side of the ship and splashed into the sea; her body falling into the cold depths of the ocean.

Rukongai and the Soul Reaper Academy:
She woke, wandering around a strange town with structures she didn't recognize and with little memory of her life before, simply that she remembered falling into a dark abyss. The clothes she was wearing were also strange; consisting of what she would come to know as a very plain blue kimono and some strange shoes with clogs. There were other people wearing similar clothes, going about her day. She looked up to the sky and wondered.

" I?" she mumbled under her breath before a older woman, appearing to be about 50, came over to her.

"What is wrong, child? you seem lost," She asked softly. She looked back at her with those same cold, distant eyes.

"I...don't know; this place is so strange and I don't remember anything," She replied softly. The woman put a reassuring hand on her shoulder.

"Do not worry, all souls start like you when they first come here. Do you have a name, child?"

"I...don't remember," She said, gently shaking her head. The woman smiled softly and as she spoke, the cloud cover split over, bathing the area in sunlight.

"Then, how about I call you Katsumi Shōkō? I think it suits a young beautiful woman like yourself and..." she pauses, looking up at the sunny sky, " was the name of my Daughter before her passing. Anyway, Katsumi; while you are here, would you like to stay with me?" She said and she looked up, showing a rare sign of emotion; this being happiness.

"Thank you; you offer your home to me and name me when I have only just met you. Please, tell me your name," She asked her and she spoke softly.

"My name is Azumi Shōkō. Now come, I believe there are things we must do," Azumi told her and, without another thought to it, Katsumi followed her; her new mother in this strange world.

Over time, Azumi explained that where they were was called the soul society; a place that souls come after they die in the world of the living. The place they lived was called Hokutan, the #20 western district in what she called the Rukongai. As time moved on, she became fascinated by the stories Azumi told her about the soul society, soul reapers and their ancient battles of old and new verses creatures called hollows, who Azumi explained as being souls who had lost their way and consumed by their own darkness, loosing their heart and becoming a hollow.

One day, while shopping, Katsumi stopping, clutching her chest as she felt terrible stomach pains, the like she had never felt before. Taking her to the doctor, They came to found that she had a higher level of spiritual energy then normal souls. He explained that for a soul to feel hunger in the soul society meant she would need to travel to the seireitei; the home of the soul reapers where she can train and survive properly. Katsumi didn't want to leave the closest thing she had to a family here, yet Azumi came over and held her shoulder like the day they first met, explaining that she will always be here so she can visit here. Katsumi worries that Azumi may die due to what would be to her a very long age for a human when Azumi explained that she was already 150 years old and not likely to go anytime soon, explaining that in the soul society, souls live a much longer time then humans. Noting this, Katsumi promised Azumi that she would come visit whenever she got the chance and embraced her. The doctor gave her some food in the form of red bean buns to keep her going before he recommended going to the soul reaper academy tomorrow as soon as possible.

And so, she left the only home she had ever known in the soul society and traveled to the seireitei. It took the best part of a day to reach the gates of the seireitei where one of the four guardians stood guard of his gate. She managed to show him the note from the doctor, detailing that she enroll in the soul reaper academy. At this, he gave a chuckle that made the earth grumble.

"Very well, but we will see if you are good enough to make it as a soul reaper, little girl," He told her with a grin before lifting the gate just enough for her to pass through. She, after asking directions, found her way to the soul reaper academy; a splendid place of learning in the style that she had fast gotten used to. Passing the entrance exam was easy enough and she reported to the main academy building, now wearing the women's school uniform of a red shitagi (under shirt), a white kosode (shirt) with red stripes, red hakama (trousers), white socks and sandals. They were lined up and she saw that each were being handed a blade within a sheath. She took hers when it was eventually her turn to get one and looked it over. It appeared as a rather plain, generic katana blade with purple wrapping and a stock guard; kept inside a pale, brown sheath.

Over the time in the soul reaper academy, she learned many things from the four basics of soul reaper combat of zanjutsu, kido, hoho and hakuda to the history of the soul society. She found that she seemed pretty good at Zanjutsu as she managed to beat some of the top students in her year and even hold her own against the tutor. She also found that she was pretty good at kido with her tutors praising her for both the force behind her kido attacks and the amount of control she had. Hoho, which went into flash step, she also seemed to get pretty quickly. However, the only one she didn't do as well in was Hakuda as although she was just good enough to pass, there were members in her class who were able to put her on her ass in not a long space of time.

Yet, she did find herself becoming distant from her peers, along with her icy disposition put many off going near her out of fear, especially when she radiated spiritual pressure as she found it would freeze up the glass and plants nearby would die out as if winter had come.

One night, in the fourth year of the academy, she was sat with her zanpakuto in her lap as she looked out the window as the land was covered in snow and snowflakes were falling outside her window. She began to radiate spiritual energy as the area began to freeze in a icy mist before her whole zanpakuto began to glow with the same spiritual pressure before the zanpakuto, both blade and sheath, began to crack with icy blue energy before eventually, it shattered as it transformed into her own, unique zanpakuto, it now possessing a ice blue wrapping and a snowflake-shaped guard with two tassels coming off the end of the handle in a zig-zag patten with a ice blue colored sheath.

Squad 3 to Current Day:
Once passing the final exam, Katsumi had a read up on the different squads and their roles in the soul society and found herself drawn to squad 3 as the thought of being a intelligence gatherer and investigator interested her and also, she wanted to be able to use it to research more then the academy's library offered and to find the truth of legends. With her abilities, she was able to take up a position within squad three, lead by lieutenant [Redacted] and the 3rd seat [Redacted]. During this time, between scouting missions and visits to Azumi, she spent her time in her room, performing jizen to better speak with her zanpakuto. Yet for a while, when she was able to talk to her zanpakuto spirit; a fierce female samurai, every time she tried to say her name, it would be if she had become muted and she'd be unable to hear it. The zanpakuto spirit herself told her this was because she had yet to gain the honor to hear her name and must get stronger before she could hear it.

And over the next 10 years, that's what she did, she trained non-stop; working on her zanjutsu, flash step and kido and raising up through the ranks to 15th seat, but she wasn't able to get any further without a full shikai release. And so, once more, she entered her inner world as her zanpakuto spirit stood waiting, her arms folded across her chest as the snow fell around them.

"Are you ready, Katsumi?" She asked, her gaze as cold as her owner's with a sense of impatience coming from the spirit.

"Truth be told; one can never be ready till the time comes, so today, let us see if I am truly ready to have you speak your name?" She said, drawing her sword as did her zanpakuto spirit.

"As you wish, then come, let us see how far you've come," She replied before they both flash stepped forward, their blades clashing, sending sparks out everywhere. They continued to spar against each other; taking blow for blow before her zanpakuto spirit managed to come in, ducking down and use a technique like Iado; slashed her from the right side of her hip to the left side of her shoulder, causing her to fall onto one knee; blood coursing down from her chest, staining the snow blood red as in the real world, her own body reacted with the same scar appearing where she was wounded. She stood over her owner.

"If this is all you have, then you are not worthy of me, it's as simple as that," She said, but as she did so, a sudden flash of movement as Katsumi also did a slash to her zanpakuto spirit across the chest that caused her to drop to one knee so she was eye-to-eye with her owner. She stabbed the ground with her sealed form and looked at Katsumi.

"I...see; I underestimated you, Katsumi..." She said, a soft smile on the usually serious zanpakuto spirit's face, "...I deem you worthy of my name. My name..." she pauses as she presses her forehead against Katsumi's forehead so their gazes met, " Denkō Sekka (Lightning Snowflake)" She explained before Katsumi left her inner world; finding that under her clothes, was the scar from the fight with Denkō Sekka and that her bed and the surround room had been covered in ice due to the uncontrolled release of her spiritual pressure.

As the years went by, she was able to learn the various ways of using her new shikai and took the 3rd seat's position when it became available as the former 3rd seat had become the then new captain of squad 3. She didn't play much of a role in the arrancar civil war, only feeling the battle between captain [Redacted] and the arrancar known as the blood wraith. It became clear that Katsumi began to idolise her captain and for many years; served him faithfully until one day; both captain [Redacted] and the former lieutenant [Redacted] disappeared. She heard by many that captain [Redacted] had retired along with the lieutenant, allowing the new captain to take over in his place. Yet, Katsumi didn't feel captain [Redacted] had any reason to retire, leading her to believe that something else happened. So, now, between her duties; she spends time in the investigations and intelligence archive to locate any information that would lead her to find the now former captain [Redacted], although whether or not she can, well, only fate can tell now.

Right out of the gate, I have this.

Strengths: [Kido, Zanjutsu, Strength, Spiritual Energy, Stamina, Reflexes]
Weaknesses: [Sensing, Hakuda]

You have 3 major strengths, 2 minor strengths, and 1 major/minor each weakness. This is NOT going to fly. These either need to be even, or slightly varied from each other.
Major: Strength, Reiryoku (Spiritual Energy), Stamina, Reflexes, Sensing
Minor: Zanjutsu, Hakuda, Kidou

-Kōgeki, Denkō Sekka (Strike, Denkō Sekka): This allows the wielder to fire a blast of blue lightning at a target either from the tip of the blade or from the side of the blade by calling the command "Strike..." along with the zanpakuto name. This is equal to kido in the high 40s range (45-49).

Nothing really major here, just need a 1 post cooldown added in and you're good to go.

-Sakebi, Denkō Sekka (Scream, Denkō Sekka): By calling the command "Scream..." along with the zanpakuto name, the blade discharges lightning from the blade in every direction to the nearby area around the wielder either while the blade is held up or impaled into the ground to send it along the snow to target's. the technique's effective area is five meters sounding the wielder or ten feet around the wielder from the feet across. This blast is equal in strength to the strike ability.]

I'm at a bit of a loss when it comes to this one. You're implying the spiritual power that's released scales to the force of impact, but there isn't really a damage range specified. There's a lack of description here that could easily be taken as unfair bullshit if not properly limited.

As a final note, There's no notation of any sort of damage from electrically charged snow other than 'it hurts'. That could be anywhere from Hadou 4-Hadou 30 and I wouldn't be able to tell the difference.


Play the game, use all the pieces, leave your cards on the table.

bumping edits:

-Reduced strengths to just kido, zanjutsu and spiritual energy and added hard to control spiritual pressure to weaknesses (similar to ichigo).
-added the one post cooldown to the strike ability.
-reworded scream to try and make it more clear as to its damage and its purpose.
-Added a scale of damage of the snow depending on how much of the snow is covering a target in all hypothetical situations and have added appropriate damage scales as referring to kido.
