|Subject: Hinawa Kagami, the frozen soul Wed May 26, 2010 9:27 am|| |
16Appearance: Background & History:
Hinawa was born as Hinawa Nanaya, a clan of 'demon' hunters - strong assassins and murderers, an incestous and secretive clan. However, her whole clan had been whiped out when she was still a kid, and she doesn't remember much, if anything, about that time, or her parents. However, the killer instinct and techniques to quickly end a life are still embedded into her soul.
It is unknown how she survived the merciless slaughter of her whole clan - most likely, she was thought to be dead by the attackers. After being found and spending nearly an entire year in a hospital, she was put into an orphanage. Her memory of the past was blurry, but her life was going to take a turn for the worse on her eight birthday.
AwakeningIt was another one of those painfully hot summer days. With a sigh, the young girl sat under the shadow of a tree. The whole orphanage had made a trip to this lake somewhere near Karakura Town, and this time, she didn't have any chance to sneak away from it. While most of the younger and also older kids where busy swimming, no ten horses would bring her into that water. First of all, it was warm like a fresh piss of a horse, second, she couldn't swim and had no desire to learn it.
Also, lately the sun had given her more trouble than normally, giving her sunburns more quickly and drying her out faster. Neither Hinawa herself nor the caretakers really thought much about it, though.
As her thoughts did go over the water of this sea, a strange feeling started creeping up the spine of the young girl with the strange collored hair. It was not like something cold was creeping up her body, more like... something completely evil. And just after coming to that realization, it happened. A scream, one of the older boys out in the water disappeared – and blood started to flow upwards. More screams, everyone trying to get away. But only she, only Hinawa... she SAW what happened. A gigantic, predator-like monster had surfaced over the water, chewing on what was left of the body of the boy, the soul already absorbed by it. With a burning pain in her head, Hinawa saw a Hollow clearly for the first time in her life. The yellow eyes in the mask met hers, and in this moment, she started running, while the monster laughed. It knew that it was seen – and that ment more Reiatsu in her than the normal human had. More food for it... Or that was what it thought, until a Shinigami slew the being from behind.
Ice-Cold HandsIt was shortly after this event, that Hinawa found herself even more alone... and on the streets. The caretakers 'got rid of her', since anyone knew that somehow, she had seen what had happened. From that day onward, Hinawa was forced to live on her own...
It wasn't before long that the young girl was closer to death than to life, of course. Humans treated her like trash, Hollows saw her as a suitable prey due to her spiritual pressure that was still weak, but existant, and Shinigami ignored her completely. In the end, all of that made her surface a new feeling in her young heart. Hate. Hate for her parents for disappearing, for the humans for looking down on her. This hate boiled over when she was attacked by another Hollow on a day, with no Shinigami in sight...
After the attack, the Hollow was still there – encased in ice, looking like a frozen statue. Awakened to her powers, Hinawa from that day on called the graveyard of Karakura her home – it was rumored to be haunted in the older parts, and the fact that nowadays gangs and thugs disappear sometimes there doesn't help much to resolve them. In reality, these disappeared most likely died by Hinawas hands upon picking a fight with her. She has no hesitation to attack and kill humans with her powers, or Hollow. Even Shinigami are not save, should they for whatever reason decide to attack her...
Personality: Hinawa is a cold and bitter girl - she is as likely to talk to a stranger as she is to freeze them dead in their tracks. She always seems to know how to insult each and every person that meets her, judging on appearance and the bits and pieces about them she finds out. Some might even consider her the best person to go to for more creative insults.
Of course, that's not all there is to it. Hinawa doesn't like humanity - not one bit. Humanity never liked her, either, thanks to her being pretty much a natural enemy of mankind. Her 'evolution' of spiritual strength is based on the coldness inside of the human heart, and her desire to hurt or to kill is actually what keeps it strong. Another one of the main things she hates is warmth - especially the warmth of the sun. She hates it, since even slight increases cause fevers to her, and these fevers easily reveal the deeper parts of her character.
The inside of her head is actually quite the mess of feelings. Besides the obvious grief everyone would feel about humanity hating her out of fear, she also feels that killing and murder are in fact very exciting and interesting things to her, no matter the method used - she is fascinated by murders in a quite twisted way, and while maybe seeming shocked at first, she is only hiding her guilty pleasure of them. This is mainly fuelled by her blood as a Nanaya, a natural-born assassin like her can't completely hate killing.
The other parts of her... are actually still a human girl. While she does not feel any guilt for killing and acts normally considered 'evil', she in facts is not a maniac, and only kills to preserve her own life, at least at humans. Hollows are another topic in that regard. It takes a bit for her to actually trust someone, but is more likely to do so for people similliar to her in their state of mind or nature. Once she takes a liking to someone, she can be protective, kind, and even sweet, but the last two only rarely, hidden or under the influence of a 'fever rush' that she can sometimes get when her emotions boil over and slightly heat her body up.
Likes: Moonlight, bright nights, cloudy days, rain, snow
Dislikes: Very hot summer days, drunks, gangs, humans who don't think before acting, fire, sunlight
Fear: Losing herself
Powers: Eishand: Hinawas spiritual ability is quite unique in more than one way. First off, her Reiatsu actually has a alignment all the time, she was born with it - Ice Reiatsu. Second, it can never be turned off, but it can be blocked off, using devices or techs created by other beings.But now to what the ability actually does: A white, transculent and slightly blue aura encircles Hinawas hands at all times, her Reiatsu is practially always leaking out a bit. She can increase that output, but never decrease it.
Since she can never turn it off, all living things that are touched by her immedeatly begin to freeze over and freeze innerly, thus killing a normal human within seconds with a painful and horrible death of freezing. Because of that, the isolated Hinawa became even more distant to all people, since a simple touch from her can kill. That does NOT apply to powered humans, Quincy, Arrancar, Shinigami, Vizards and all the others, however: their own spiritual energy blocks out the Ice Reiatsu. A weaker or equally powered being will slowly freeze and be encased in ice, the frozen parts can be shattered by blunt force and hurt like hell. A stronger being feels a numbness from the touched part starting to spread - a rather long touch is needed to actually start any freezing for them. Hollow and Arrancar are weaker to this technique, since their own nature absorbs and feasts on spiritual energy from the air - this increases the effect of Eishand. Stronger Arrancars null this effect, however, and take just as long as a similliar Shinigami to freeze.
Non-living objects do not freeze on touch, but they cool down with time. Once Hinawa increases her output, she can freeze solid objects more easy, also encasing them in ice, like everything that is frozen by her powers.
Another note: The ice aura spreads a bit around the hand upon will, increasing the area of effect. Even if dodged, her hands can still hurt should their aura connect.
Eiskalte Jungfrau: Another passive ability, this is some sort of measure for Hinawas powers... because her body starts to cool down degrees as she grows in powers. That means in RPG-terms: Every tier, her body temperature drops 2 degrees. So: in Tier 5, her body temperature would be 33° Celcius, while Tier 4 would have 31° Celcius left, and so on. This has no negative effect on her bodily functions, but it makes her harder to detect using heat-detecting stuff. Hinawa also becomes more vulnerable to fire through this, though.
Frostblick: Hinawas cold stare can startle anyone with a weak heart. In fights, that means that anyone who is not sure about what he fights for or if it is right to fight her and looks right into her eyes can be shocked, startled or even paralized by her glance. On someone with a strong resolve, this remains useless. These eyes are even active on a daily basis whenever Hinawa feels like it, and can startle and scare normal humans.
Eisaura: Hinawas form of Shikai, her Reiatsu-output increases, cooling down the air around her, in order to make breathing harder for others. If she is still un-noticed when this is used, it can even cause people to freeze to death before realizing what is going on.
Letzter Kuss: Maybe the most horrible attack Hinawa can use. Kissing her victim on the lips, he gets infused with the biggest amount of Ice Reiatsu possible, almost a certain death. While actually being quite quick, for the one kissed the death is slow and horrible, starting to loose all feeling for the own body before finally falling into the icy embrace of death.
it's almost impossible to resist this kind of attack. However, Hinawa needs to be certain in her resolve to kill without mercy. A kiss for someone who she actually cares about would be harmless.
Ice-Walking: This is Hinawas equalivent to Shunpo or Sonido. Collecting Ice Reiatsu under her feet, she can freeze the air and stand on it, also creating small parts directly infront of the feet, and rush over them, creating more directly infront - basicially making her slide through the air or over the ground at high speeds. She does NOT disappear for short moments, however, and is clearly visible during use, given that the watchers eyes react fast enough. The movements while doing this are very smooth, controlled and beautiful.
Eisklinge: Hinawa is able to produce small knives, sharp icicles or even katana-length swords out of solid, razor-sharp ice in her hands. She can fling the smaller blades like throwing knives if need be, and can fight with surprising skill with any kind of length for the blades.
Anatomic Knowledge: A memory from times long past, Hinawa knows where she has to strike a human to nearly instantly kill him/her or deal severe crippling.
Awakening: A state that is only activated rarely, as it can't be controlled by Hinawa conciously. Whenever she is in an extremely great peril, recieves a large emotional shock or is simply overwhelmed by her overboiling feelings, she 'awakens', entering a new state similliar to the Shikai of a Shinigami, but different from her Eisaura. Afterwards, her memory is often blurred out, to the point where she can't really remember her own actions most of the time.
While awakened, Hinawas ice-powers around the hands seem to actually disappear for the time being. Two crystal-like, small wings sprout from her back, while her eyes start to shine in an unnatural, light blue. A bunch of sharp ice-crystals, called 'diamond shards', start to float around her - on a flick of the wrist or a simple thought, she can direct the crystals to act like a swarm of flying razor knives that return to her, use them to make a shield around herself, or even make some of them mold together into her usual fighting weapons.
Furthermore, should she place her hand on something solid, she'll be able to instantly reactivate her freezing powers and send out a 'wave' of ice to snap-freeze whatever she is touching inside of an icicle. The sprouting of this icicle looks quite similliar to a flower blooming.
The stronger Hinawa gets over time, the more icicles she'll be able to control, and the diamond shards get harder, faster and easier to control, meaning more accuracy and less blind stabbing/slashing later on.
Cambio-Form: Entered whenever her mind is pushed beyond it's limits. At first, Cambio-Form resembles Awakening - in fact, it's the exact same at first, and has the exact same power-set. The difference is how it is activated, because it only works if Hinawa has nearly no spiritual energy left, AND her emotions boil over, and is thus an enhanced Awakening. She instantly releases all the last reserves of her body when changing into that and transforms them into spiritual energy, which can be seen as a 'Second Wind' type of ability that can restore up to half of her Reiatsu instantly, but comes at the cost of rendering her near-death afterwards thanks to her body overheating.
Also, she starts to absorb the humidity of the air in large amounts to transform into ice - at any given time, Hinawa can call the diamond shards around herself, and 'fuse' with them. They generate an armor around her arms, complete with blades attached to the under-sides of them, blades of varying sizes for her hands, encasings of sharp ice around her feet, and even something that looks similliar to an ice tiara. As Hinawa gathers more water from the atmosphere, this natural armor can grow up to encasing her completely like a frozen shell that can take quite a lot of punishment, turning a Fragile Speedster into a Lightning Bruiser. She loses her ablity to snap-freeze something with a touch of her hand while she has the armor on, though. At any given time, the armor can be told to scatter, and turn back into even more diamond shards.
Needless to say - THIS is Hinawas form of Bankai.
Strengths: Hinawa is a fast being, sliding over the battlefield with much grace and weapon skill. Also, the can breathe cold air without problems, and survive any kind of cold temperatures without trouble.
Weakness: Fire and heat based attacks can really screw Hinawa up, since her body needs to be cooled down permanently by her powers to continue functioning. Also, her eyes are vulnerable against direct light attacks.
