Being a member of the noble Kuchiki Family, Kemiko puts the honor and rules of the family very high, since disobeying the rules is one of the worst crimes you can do. She talks with manner and respect towards everyone, but only if they are fourth seat and above, since those below isn't what she considers high ranking status. You will often find her training, reading a book, polishing her zanpaktou, or sit alone with a cup of tea. Kemiko isn't the most social person. She puts others in front of herself, and will often go over her own limits to protect the innocent and her squad mates. She doesn't have any real friends among the divisions, not even in her own. Despite her lack of showing emotion towards others, and her liking of being alone, she does enjoy to meet new people, see new places and in a few occasions, have fun. On the outside she might seem like a emotionless, strict lieutenant, but on the inside she`s just a kind hearted woman who wants to protect those close to her. Sexuality:
: She can be very emotional in rare cases, she is a double wielder.History:
Kemiko was born on June the 6th, a hot summer evening. She grew up in a middle-class area. Kemiko was an only child, and her parents could not afford her the most expensive things, but there was food on the table every night and a holiday or two now and then, their life was simple and happy. It was on her ten year old birthday that everything went wrong. When her mother was down in the bank to get the money that she was gonna buy Kemiko`s birthday gift with, a robbery took place. Her mother was among 21 other people that were shot that day.
Her father started to drink after the death of his wife, but he remained sane enough to work, which meant they didn`t have to starve. It was like someone had blown out all the warmth in their apartment. No one was smiling and kissing them good morning when they awoke those lazy Sunday mornings, no happy greeting followed by a hug when you came home from work(or school in Kemiko`s case). At last, it became too much for her father. A December morning, her father took a gun and shot her in the head before shooting himself, he didn`t want to be alone in the afterlife...
At first, Kemiko thought she was just in a dream. She was standing next to her own body, which was laying on the floor with a bullet through the head. Hugging the dead body, with a bullet through the neck, was her father, neither was breathing. She had some somewhat strange chain in her chest, and it was broken halfway. She had only been there for two days, and already two links of the chain had disappeared while she took a nap or two.
After strolling randomly through the streets of japan for five days, wondering why no one noticed her, a large creature wearing a mask suddenly approached her, laughing happily over finding such an unusual strong spiritual power in a spirit. Right as the hollow was about to attack, a man wearing, what seemed to be a black kimono(a shinigami uniform), sprung down from a roof, cutting the hollow clean in half.
The man was 6.1 feet tall and appeared to be first in his 20`s. He knelled down and patted the scared Kemiko on the head, saying she should not be afraid, after all, he had just saved her life. Kemiko blushed, he was handsome with his dark long hair and Grayish black eyes. He told his name was Daiku Kuchiki, and that they would meet again in rukongai. He placed the hilt of his blade onto her forehead, and gave the young Kemiko a little smile, as she disappeared into spirit particles.
Kemiko was fairly lucky. She was "reborn", in the 31 district of rukongai, meaning that the standards was fairly better than those in the 60th and above district of the town. It did not take her long to find an abandoned house, right next to the west gate, that lead into seireitei were the shinigami`s lived. Kemiko spend around two years in rukongai, before "faith", ran past her door. It was a sunny morning in rukongai that the west gates was opened, and some shinigami walked out onto the street, looking around to find the run-away shinigami that had fled from his cell during the night. Daiku was there, wearing a 4th seat band, looking as if he had cut his hair slightly since last she saw him.
As Kemiko left her little house and ran towards them, it only took Daiku a few seconds to recognize her. The other shinigami was first surprised over seeing their 4th seat officer embrace a young unknown girl who was dressed in a dirty kimono. After Daiku and the others returned to the west gate the same evening, an amazing sight meet them, or at least amazing for Daiku. At the gate, that had opened for them to enter, Kemiko was standing, holding a massive ball of reaitsu in her hand.This led to Daiku taking her with him and his squad into the seireitei, were he would enroll her into the academy.
In the acadamy, nothing seemed to be special about Kemiko. Her grades in sword fighting was slightly higher than the average student, but else she seemed to be nothing out of the ordinary, scoring middle, sometimes high grades in each lesson.
During her second year however, was were the changes began to happen. She began having odd dreams about a burning field of flowers. In the first couple of weeks with the dream, it seemed like she was the only thing there. One day, halfway through her second year, and were the dreams had been going on for 4 months, she meet two beings in it. One was a large silhouette of a dragon, the other was of a man with black hair, dressed in red armor and a even redder cape. When the man tried to talk to her, the dragon began to roar so loud that she could`t hear the man.
Becoming a Kuchiki act:
The news that a second year academy student had met the silhouette of her zanpaktou in the dreams spread throughout the seireitei, and eventually reached even the 13 protection squads. The news of a young academy student who had excellent skills in swordsmanship had already been spreading over a long period of time, and it was a surprise that it was the same youngster.
When Daiku heard of it, he decided that it was now he would put his plan into motion, his plan of getting Kemiko into the Kuchiki family, they already had a close father/daughter relationship, but he wanted her to become apart of his family. He confronted her with his idea, and at first, Kemiko straight out refused it, the captain of the 11th division had already applied for her to become apart of his squad because of her swordsmanship skills. Daiku began to explain that the family was not a squad and she could live with him in the Kuchiki main manor, and the entire family would become her family.
After three months of thinking, a meeting was set up with the head of the Kuchiki family so it would become official. Daiku began to explain her abilities and time in seireitei, also why he was close to her. The one leading the meeting, an elder Kuchiki, lifted his hand and silenced Daiku, and then began to ask the young Kemiko about her will to join the family. Her words seemed to touch the elder Kuchiki, but he held it in and began to discuss it with the head of the family, the man known as Byakuya. After a few minutes, Bykuya approved the adoption and signed under. Daiku was now official the father to Kemiko.
Meeting Senshi Byoga and a new beginning.
It was during her 30th year in the 11th division that she began to have dreams again, yet this time it was of a burning castle instead of a burning field. Once again the armored man and dragon appeared, yet this time she could see them clearly. Day after day, the man`s voice began to become clear, and the roaring of the dragon began to form slurred words. After a year and a half with the dreams, she finaly heard the voice of them. The words the armored man spoke was, "Our name is Senshi..", "Byoga!", the dragon roared, finishing the other spirit`s sentence.
Kemiko did really have very good skills when it came to close combat, but due to her shikai abilities being kido based, the captain of the 11th division, Zaraki Kenpachi, didn`t see her fit to be in the division anymore. She was transfered to the first division, and started out as a seventh seat, mostly spending her time on sorting out messages and doing paperwork. People began to wonder why Yamanto would take the young Kuchuki into his squad. There were only two other double wielders in the entire seireitei, Shunsui and Ukitake, who both was like sons for the captain commander, so maybe he had taken in Kemiko because she was a double wielder as well., it was only what people assumed through.
The winter war and aftermath.
After several years in the first division, the big war against Aizen and the espada`s began. Kemiko, who had been promoted to the third seat due to her growing shikai and kidou skills, had been ordered to remain in soul soceity since both the captain commander, and the vice captain of the first division left to the real world to battle Aizen. Of cause she had heard about Kurosaki ichigo and his deeds, she also knew about what the espada were and how the three former captains were involved, but this was her first time were she got drawn into the battle, well not directly battle. She spend most of her time acting as a messenger for the captain commander, handing out commands to the shinigami forces under his orders. At one point she traveled to the living world in order to take care of a lower ranked arrancar who had been send out in order to scout for any shinigami that might try to interfere with the battle. As she took care of the arrancar, the squad of shinigami that had traveled with her watched in amazement.
Eventually, the news of the victory over Aizen reached the soul soceity, and it began to rebuild itself. The news of Kemiko`s strength and victory over the lower ranked arrancar, as well as her leadership skills under the invasion, spread quickly. The elders of the Kuchiki clan gained a understanding of how strong the woman was, both in mind and body, which they would remember when chaos struck again. The captain commander began to give her more important tasks, and the rumors of Kemiko getting promoted to vice captain began to spread.
The Fire Dancer rises!
Just as Soul soceity had almost recovered from the war, disaster struck once more. A bright light appeared one night, and the next morning, most of the higher seated officers and captains was gone, including the captain commander. The seireitei was thrown into chaos, but the Kuchiki family was doing worse. With their leader suddenly gone, an elder from the family was picked as temporarily leader until they discovered the fate of Byakuya. Not long went by before a new captain commander was picked, a man named Hiryo Yuzuki. After he was placed as commander, new captains began to emerge from the chaos. The seireitei began to get more stable once again, and a surprise awaited the red haired kemiko.
At a captain`s meeting, were the captain`s would introduce their vice captains, the new commander called out Kemiko, announcing that he had picked her as the new lieutenant. It didn`t surprise many, and for the Kuchiki clan it meant that yet anthoder one of their members had gotten a high rank among the shinigami. Some of the former captain`s and lieutenants returned out of nowhere, having no memory of were they had been or how they escaped. The shinigami had lost trust in them due to the lack of information, so the former captains and officers was placed among the squads.
It has now been around a half year since Kemiko was promoted, and the first disappeared began to show up. The Kuchiki clan has rebuilded itself under the leadership of the elder Kuchiki, and rumors has it that Kemiko is in line to take over the family. The Kuchiki house still waits eagerly for the return of Byakuya, but until he returns, the clan will be run by the elder. Even if he were to return, it was most likely that the elders would`t accept him as leader anymore, and instead follow the new generation of shinigami~Zanpakuto Information~Blade Name:
Senshi Byoga (warrior dragon)Sealed Blade appearance:
As seen in the picture below, her zanpaktou`s has the shape of a regular katana. They are about 2 and a half feet in length and 5 inches wide. The first thing people will notice about them is that the blades and hilts are deep red, the same color as blood. The gauntlets has the shape of a dragon head with open jaws. The holster for the first zanpaktou is located on her lower back were the hilt is sticking out on the left side. The holster for the second zanpaktou is placed on her back, the tip of the sword being at the left hip while the hilt is sticking out from behind her right shoulder. The holster`s are the same color as the sealed zanpaktou`s. The two holsters are connected by a red strap that crosses from the right shoulder down to the left hip.
Senshi is a man with long red hair that has a flew black stripes in it. His hair reaches down to his shoulders so his handsome face is fully framed, his bangs are cut so they fall slightly over his left eye, giving him a more mysterious appearance. His eyes are a deep blue that matches with his pale skin. For clothing he wears a silver armor made out of light metal, making it more easy to move around while protecting the vital spots on his body. Over the armor he wears a long red cloak with a hood that usually is pulled up over his head. He wears a armor glove with sharp fingertips on the left hand, making it look like dragon claws.
Byoga is a large red dragon with a long, thick neck. He has four strong legs, each with three large claws he uses to walk on and slice his enemies with. While the scales are red on most of his body, the underside of his neck, belly and tail has a sandy color. Two large red wings that he uses to fly with are sprouting out from his back. From the backside to his head and all the way down to the tip of his tail, a row of black bones with sand colored skin sanding between them runs. He has two horns that follows the shape of his head and sticks out the top of his back head. Inner world
The spirit world of Kemiko`s zanpaktou isen`t really what you would call a friendly place. The sky is always covered in dark clouds and the sun is only visible through a few holes in them. Her entire world is actually a gigantic large castle with an endless amount of stairs, hallways, rooms, floors and towers. The throne room is located in the middle of the castle, that is were Senshi and Byoga resides. When Kemiko first "arrived" in the spirit world, she wandered around for what seemed like days until she found the throne room. Even through Senshi and Byoga mainly resides in the throne room, Senshi sometimes wander the endless hallways in his own thoughts while Byoga flies around the tall towers of the castle.~Shikai Information~Release Phrase:
As their life is taken by your mighty sword, rise from the flames, Senshi Byoga!Released blade appearance:
When they are in their sealed form there is no way to tell the difference on Senshi and Byoga, but when the shikai is realsed there is difference on the two. After Kemiko has spoken the release phrase, the two katana`s will turn red for a moment and form into two long tanto`s that are around 2 feet long. The hilts of the tanto`s will have the same color as in the unsealed state, yet this time two red ribbons that are around 6 inches long will hang from the end of the hilt. The blades on the two tanto`s are formed like a trident with two small blades that extend around 5 inches away from the hilt itself and ends in a pointed tip. In the middle of the two , a third and much longer blade that is shaped like the two smaller.~Shikai Techniques/Abilities~
(seated officers can have 1-2 shikai abilities depending on the strength of those abilities, Lieutenants can have 2 of considerable strength, and Captains can have 3 powerful ones. )Name of abilty/technique:
Rage of the dragonDescription:
After speaking the name of the technique, Kemiko will hold Byoga up in the air. A flames will then engulf her lower arm and the zanpaktou and continue to existent out until its 30 feet long. The end of the flames will take the shape of a dragon head with long fangs, Senshi will then begin to glow and heaten up Byoga so the "dragon" cannot be put out with water. The dragon is controlled by how Kemiko moves Byoga, like if she trusts the tanto forward the dragon will charge in that direction. The "neck" itself will be 6 feet wide, while at the head it will be 8 feet wide.Duration:

Note:If you are confused about this ability, it basicly works like Toshiro`s shikai were he can summon the dragon head, the neck being connected with his sword. Its of cause not as powerful as it, i simply took the premise of it.Name of abilty/technique:
By crossing the two tanto`s, flames will engulf Kemiko`s entire body. The flames will not hurt her since they are heaten by Senshi. In a enemies eyes this ability may seem like the first stage of an attack, but in fact it acts like a booster on Kemiko. The flames will make her three times faster which means she will be able to keep up with a captain who has basic shunpo. Her strentgh will also increase as well, making her hand-to-hand combat advanced. If any part of her body touches the body of her enemy they will get burned. If the contact is on 5 seconds or less they will only receive first degree burnings. If the contact is on 10 seconds and above they will receive second degree burnings. If the contact is on 20 seconds and above, they will receive third degree burnings. This ability is mainly why she got her nickname, Fire dancer.
Range:None since it surrounds her body.Duration:

~Rp SampleWhy send me onto this mission in the middle of winter?..taicho keeps finding ways of annoying me..
. She had been assigned a mission to track down a couple of bounts in the outskirts of Karakura, normally a smaller squad would had been send, but since she had just recently gotten promoted to lieutenant, her captain had assigned her the mission as a test of her work. At first, Kemiko was just thinking he was joking, she was a member of the Kuchiki house, one of the highest ranking noble families in soul society, known for their skilled zanpaktou and kidou, there was no way he would assign her to this kind of low difficulty mission. He had looked her straight in the eyes and repeat the mission, making it clear for her that he had been serious. Being a former seated officer of the eleventh division meant she was used to working in the fields, giving her an advance when working solo.
Kemiko stopped in front of the glass door leading out to the almost lifeless street, a few humans and cars passing by now and then. She looked at the mirror and observed herself, the twelve division had gotten better in making artificial bodies over the decades, it looked identical to her own body. Kemiko had smooth skin with a neutral pale look to it, a soft formed face with some sharp features the right places, and finally a curvy body and a well formed chest. Kemiko didn`t put much of an effort into her looks, but she had managed to maintain her some-what attractive figure over the years. She was wearing some gray sneakers, black jeans that allowed movement, a red belt, a gray sweatshirt with a black tank top under it, and finaly a knee long coat that was closed from the neck to the hips, allowing her free movement with her legs. She was wearing some black gloves that hugged her lower arm, meaning she easily could grab around things. Her blood red hair was pulled into a low, loose ponytail that reached a few inches under her knees, the chest long bangs being left loose in order to frame her face. As she pushed the glass door open, the chilly wind blew in and caused her long hair and coat to whirl around her in a little "dance", something it would do every time even the slightest movement of wind came.
Kemiko had just come out of the building when she saw a cloaked figure jumping onto the top of the roof she had just walked out of. No one seemed to notice him, despite some was looking in the direction that he had jumped in, meaning that regular human`s could`t see him. Kemiko noticed he was looking down at the street, was he planning a attack, resting or simply observing? The artificial body was masking her reaitsu, which was already limited to 20% of its normal strength due to the restriction that was put on anyone of lieutenant rank or higher whenever they entered the human world, even if he looked down at her and noticed she could see him, he would most likely think she was just an regular spiritual aware human, which wasen`t rare in this town.
With a light sigh, she buried her hands into the pockets in the coat, lowered her head slightly and began to walk down the street. She turned left and entered one of the nearby ally ways, lifting her "cellphone", out from her inner pocket. [i]"..This is Kuchiki Kemiko, lieutenant of the first division...i have spotted a spiritual being with human form near district 47...i will investigate the being, it could be harmless.."
, "understood, Kuchiki-sama"
. Kemiko closed the phone again and looked up at the roof of her building, narrowing her black eyes at the hooded figure.
