: If you see her on a rare slacking day let her slack or face the anger of a tiger…History:
Rina was born into a rather wealthy samurai clan, she was the third daughter and she was a well-educated young woman. However, she was married to a son of a higher clan when she was fourteen; this was a political and wartime marriage leaving Rina isolated from anything she was familiar with. She became pregnant with child only months after the wedding, allowing her husband to seek solace elsewhere. The young samurai girl wasn’t disheartened by this, even if her mother-in-law at first ridiculed her. Her pregnancy was a hard one and her weakened body did not survive childbirth.
Rina didn’t understand at first that she had died and nearly turned into a hollow from the grief of her lost child before a shinigami found her and performed her soul burial.
The young woman awoke in western Rukongai 39 where she wandered around for some time, disoriented and still grieving for the life and child she lost.
She cared less about how she looked and acted, leaving her in a disheveled and vulnerable state, she stole food and water when she could never realizing that others never felt the same hunger as her. The first act of kindness towards her was a shinigami giving her something to eat after she passed out whilst he walked by her.
As the decade went by, she slowly rebuilt her confidence and strength, and a wish to protect the child she never found.
A small white striped cat started to follow her at some time, and Rina was in the beginning annoyed with the relentless critter who never showed anything akin to fear. She then accepted the cat as part of her and realized that it was her Zanpakotou Byakko corporal form.
Rina joined the academy and positioned in the advanced class, she proved to be an adept and swift learner off all trades, but she excelled her classmates within the arts of Kidou.
Rina graduated second in her class and was drafted into the fifth division were she only stayed for little over a year before entering the tenth as fuku-taichou, she succeeded her Taichou after his death. ~Zanpakuto Information~Name:

She was walking without destination, her hair unkempt and her entire being screamed neglect and tiredness. She hated everything that she was and hated the world at random, the people of the city knew of her, some pitied her, some ignored her and some taunted her. It was one of those days when people taunted her; boys not much older than herself, if she was a girl, that is, came forth and hurled a rock at her. She curled up on herself, a animalistic moan escaped her lips as a second stone impacted with her head, she touched the site of impact with a shivering hand, seeing the blood escape. A scream exited her lungs, making the boys scurry away as scared rats. A man clad in black hakama and kimono neared her, no not entirely black, he had a white haori, squatting down next to her, she looked up in his face, a small kind smile played on the pale haired mans lips.
“Life dealt you a hard road indeed,” he said as he pulled a pristine white clothe from his sleeve, carefully folding it and pressing it against the wound. “You should be more careful or you will become the animal you resemble so much. Come with me and see the Academy, you will pass the tests, it’s your choice?”
“Choice?” the woman said, her voice crackly with unused. She had a choice.
