Tenrai is a normally calm and collected person. He appreciates nature and often doesnt like those who destroys it. He likes sitting in the rain and watching it, which some think is odd. He does this, because it helps him remain calm or he uses it as a special way of venting. He is polite and seems extremely kind. However he can have a temper when provoked. However he seems to have some control over himself. He is still reletively young compared to some of the other captains however he fights to show his strength. He mastered kidou to make himself seem more impressive so others dont bother him about his age. He has a eiditic memory and is extremely intellegent and helpful.Sexuality:

Born as Aiden Cohen, Tenrai was a peaceful intellegent child. Young Aiden was extremely playful and loved to go out on adventures. When he was the age of eight, little Aiden walked off after school one day and disappeared in a nearby park in his town. The park had a miniature woods inside of it and there little Aiden was lost. It wasnt long before his parents noticed that he was missing and reported the disappearance to the attorities. Aiden was walked in the woods when it began to rain. As time past the rain grew worst until it became a thunder storm. Aiden was now scared and he tried to run back home. On the way back home Aiden tripped and grazed his knee. He began crying and while this happened a bolt of lightning came ground and crashed into young Aiden, killing him instantly. It wasnt until an hour later than his dead body was found. The lightning didnt burn him terribly and something that was noticed was although he was dead he was still crying.
~Rebirth and Training~
As a soul lost in the forest, Aiden's ghost oftened cried at night which was later reported as a strange sound that came from the park, causing less and less people to go to it. As the cries grew louder Hollows slowly began being attracted to the town and people started dying. Soul Reapers investigated and dispatched of the hollows in the area. They found little Aiden binded to the area where he died and cleansed his soul and sent him on his way to the Soul Society. Once there Aiden began a new life, completely forgetting the previous one. He became Tenrai Raiden. Uniquely the way he died effected his personality and later his zanpaktou. Tenrai grew very close with storms and when he was training in the Shinigami Academy, he favored Kidou relating to storm like elements. When he attained his zanpaktou it wasnt much surprise that it was storm related. Tenrai graduated the academy with flying colors and was admitted into the 6th division. In his time in the 6th Division, he ranked up from 9th seat to 3rd seat and attained a very powerful and unique Shikai. He was soon transfered to the 2nd division.
~Tempest of the Soul Society~
Several decades after being promoted to 3rd seat of the 2nd Division, Tenrai mastered his Shikai and grew incredibly strong. He kept up his serious mental and physical training. After several years of mastering his skills and being intune with his zanpaktou he unlocked his bankai. Due to how long he trainined, he grew acustomed to it rather quickly and developed it in a matter of days after he unlocked it. After Soifon's disappearance Tenrai decided to step up and he then applied to become a Captain. After showing his intellect through countless test as well as proving his strength, determination and loyalty, he was promoted to captain. After giving a demonstration of his Bankai he was nicknamed the Tempest of the Soul Society and now he still holds the rank of Captain and his alias still holds true to this very day. Because of his age, a few are skeptical about him being a captain, however his body is matured, allowing him to use Bankai as long as needed, and he is as strong or as fast as most other captains. Also his intellect allows for him to show his sagacity.~Zanpakuto Information~Blade Name:

The seeming inside of a lightning cloud, constantly releasing sparks of lightning.~Shikai Information~Release Phrase:
Decieve thy enemy and eradicate all that stands in your path, Enrai ArashiReleased blade appearance:
After he states his swords shikai phrase his zanpaktou will transform into a dagger shaped weapon only longer. This blade has several abilities. However the blade itself is also unique, giving it lightning rod properties, allowing for Tenrai to absorb and fire lightning if he is able to generate it.Name of abilty/technique:
One of its abilities is to form grey clouds on the blade extending to the blades midsection to make sure that cloud doesnt reach Tenrai. This grey cloud is constantly sparking, showing that inside of it is a strong electric current, or pure lightning. When Tenrai enters Shikai one of these clouds will form over the sword instantly without a reaitsu payment, however afterwards in order to create these clouds it would cost reaitsu. These clouds stay on the blade until either it is released or it meets a technique of equal or greater strength, causing the cloud to merely disappear. When objects are hit with the blade while it is surrounded by the cloud, the object will be throughly shocked as if struck by lightning. Like normal electricity, these shocks can travel through water and some metals. Another ability of these blade is to release the clouds causing the clouds to leave the blade and extend up to 50 meters. When the grey cloud extends is continues to spark, however these sparks are harmless. On Tenrai's command however, the cloud will emit a strong blast of lightning, severly shocking and burning anything inside of the cloud, and particially shocking and paralizing anything within 25 meters of its outside radius. Motions of the sword can cause the cloud to move. A unique property of these clouds are since they hold lightning they are capable of attracting and absorbing lightning. This allows him to power up his cloud attacks by adding more lightning to them, and can be used for hidden attacks or as a way to save lightning.Duration:

The final ability of these blade is to fire blasts of lightning from the blade itself (strength varying). Like lightning, these blast set ablaze on anything they touch. Once the lightnign crashes into its intended target, it will burn, shock as well as blow back the target, making a thunder sound and leaving a trail of fire in its tracks. Duration:

N/A~Bankai~(Captains only)~Bankai Techniques/Abilities~
After entering bankai, Tenrai will gain two of his previous swords, and this time they will be golden. These blades only retain the cloud projection and instant storm techniques. Since he possess two blades, he can use double the attack power and distance of each attack without adding on to the reaitsu cost, by dividing the strengthened attack into the two blades. These blades can generate stronger bolts of lightning from the blades or when clouds generated from the blades are fired into the sky, they can generate powerful thunderstorms quickly.
Also the blades of these swords naturally emit tremendous heat, causing the blades to be extremely hot, however these heats dont go past the middle of the blade and as long as they remain in Tenrai's hands the heat is controlled. Once out of Tenrai's hand, the sword will emit heat all over it, causing the temperature of the surrounding area to get noticeable hotter. Because of this at the end of each sword will be a long red scarf like object that has the ability to repel heat. With that scarf, Tenrai is able to grap onto his sword again and control the heat, causing the blade to immediately cool down.Name:
These swords are also lightning rods able to absorb any type of electricity,reaitsu based lightning or natural lightning and store it for future use. The swords can attract Lightning like a magnet when called, brining the lightning onto the blade. If absorbed into the swords, lightning absorbed can be released at any time without Tenrai actually being in contact with the blade, and the method of it being released can vary, either being in a blast or a shockwave. These swords can also absorb lightning based attacks and convert them into reaitsu to replenish Tenrai's reaitsu (absorbs half the reaitsu and adds it to Tenrai's). Along with that, Tenrai cannot be harmed by any of his own lightning techniques, or natural lightning. His body itself becomes a rod and he is able to absorb, aim and fire lightning from his body without harming himself in anyway.Duration:

N/AName of abilty/technique:
A bolt of lightning will fire down from the sky and hit Tenrai. Tenrai will then glow off a golden aura. This form will last for 3 turns. While in this form he gains tremendous speed and power. However in return for this boost he loses stamina quickly. When in this form, Tenrai can generate lightning from his body himself. After the 3rd turn, Tenrai will revert back into his Shikai, unable to use Bankai for the remainder of the fight. Duration:

As Captain of the 2nd Division, He is a Shunpo Master, AdvancedHand to hand
Surprisingly even for a Captain, Tenrai has an abnormally large amount of reaitsu and powerful spiritual pressure.
Lightning Generation - When in Shikai, without his sword Tenrai is still capable of generating and firing lightning from his fingertips. He also is capable of redirecting lightning or absorbing it and converting it into reiatsu. Lightning fired this way leaving a trail of fire behind it.
Firing : 2 posts
Absorbing/Redirecting : N/A
Paralisis Touch - Without Shikai, Tenrai's natural reaitsu has a shock effect. When fighting in hand to hand he can slightly shock his opponent shocking them into paralisis.
Reaitsu - Tenrai's reaitsu is extremely dangerous when he releases a large amount. It causes the area around him to be prone to lightning striking if there is a storm and the area itself with generate and release sparks of electricity which can slightly injury or burn enemies and even friends if they arent careful.
A man with dark blue hair and golden eyes walked into a roor, his captain garments blowing slightly. "Report", he said to a man who was dressed in a black overall. "Captain...Theres a disturbance in the Rukongai districts..It could be an unrising. We're going to go make sure the riots dont spread and to see if anyone is causing these...you know this isnt the 1st time that this has happened recently", he said. Shinko narrowed his eyes and he thought about it. "Yes this would be the 6th time within the past month. Stand down Ill go look into this myself", he said as he walked out the room. "But captain-", the man in black was saying before he heard a swishing sound. When he looked outside Shinko was gone.
Shinko appeared in one of the lower districts of the Rukongai, his hands in his pockets. He looked up at the nighttime sky and sighed, "Shame...its such a beautiful night", he said. He stood on a building and looked around. He noticed an orange glow in the distance and slightly luminated the darkness. He jumped of the building and in an instant and he was gone now on another building. He saw a huge fire and several beaten bodies. A riot was occuring and Shinko looked as another man seemed to be overwatching the events. Shinko stared at him and then looked back down...this riot needed to end but Shinko decided to take care of the "ringleader" first. He turned to the man who noticed him and then began to run. Shinko was well known and this man knew hed be killed for what he did. Shinko disappeared and appeared next to the man. "Are you responsible for what has happened here as well as the other occurances in the past month?", he asked calmly. The man drew his zanpakuto and nodded, "So what if I am...You cant stop me..I have an army". Shinko noticed this man was wearing a unique brand on his kimono, probably one the man created himself for his "army".
Shinko then glanced down and noticed several men who were fighting below had this brand...Shinko now knew who his opponent was and he placed his hand on his zanpakuto. He looked at the enemy ringleader, "Excuse me", he said and his thumb pushed his zanpakuto out of its hilt slightly. Shinko then disappeared and appeared in the middle of the riot quickly slicing through multiple men killing them. In a minute Shinko appeared back on the building staring at the man...his zanpakuto bloody. He flicked his wrist, removing the blood off of his sword before looking at the man. "You can either give up and be placed in the Maggots Nest...Or be slain here with your men", he said. The man didnt speak, "Tsk", was all that Shinko heard before he noticed the man charging at him. The man slashed and suddenly he went right through Shinko. Shinko appeared behind the man..."I'm here..", he said and the man turned around trying to slash Shinko again. Before the man could finish turning around Shinko quickly turned and sliced upwards, cutting the man into two halves. "Shame..You should have chose to go to the Maggots Nest...at least you would of have a future", Shinko said as he once again sheathed his sword and headed back to his quarters..
