PostSubject: Izanami [Obelisk of Chastity]   Wed Dec 12, 2012 4:34 am

Name: Izanami

Nickname: Light of Lights, the Chaste, the Ashbringer, Gabriel

Virtue: Chastity

Age: 27

Gender: Female

Weapon(s): N/A

Personality: Izanami was once a kind girl who possessed a great love of protecting all she held dear. To this end, she devotedly struck down Hollows and Arrancar alike sparing not a breath for them to monologue, boast their superiority, or otherwise beg for life. She would ensure all threats were eliminated without hesitation, as any moment of uncertainty could lead to her losing a loved one. This kindness was eventually lost with the coming of the Togabito. All around her, she witnessed the horrors Hell had wrought upon the lives of the wicked, and in turn, lost faith in the goodness of others.

It is her belief that evil souls, Hollows, Togabito, or otherwise, must be annihilated in order for purity to be restored to the world. By doing this, they cannot pass on their corruption, and goodness will flourish. To that end, she is extremely hostile to Hollows, Togabito, Arrancar, and occasionally, Bounts. She is easy to displease, but getting her to lift a finger of her own to strike something other than an evil spirit down takes monumental effort. She would much rather trick others into doing it than sully her hands.

Izanami possesses a penchant for manipulation and deceit. Fellow Quincies in particular are of great interest to her; as the only beings who can erase a spirit's existence, she consider's them a race worth preserving at almost any cost. Thus, she tends to throw her lot in with them, regardless of actions taken. Most corruption present within the ranks of the Quincy order is ignored by her otherwise watchful eye.

She once held a great deal of love in her heart, but this part of her has become dormant since the rise of the Togabito. Separated by war, her only love had long since lost contact with her. Interestingly, she has a rare condition known as algolagnia that forces her body to interpret all sensations, whether normally painful or otherwise, to be felt as pleasure. It was because of this that she grew to love who she did, for reasons long locked away and never to be revealed to anyone. Upholding the virtue of Chastity, she tends to avoid taking unnecessary damage if possible.

Physical Appearance: Izanami's appearance is reminiscent to that of an angel's. Standing at a short five feet even, she is not particularly impressive in stature or body. Her hair is long and golden, flowing straight to her ankles and untied or styled. It frames her face, which is typically locked in a devious smile. Her eyes are a vibrant magenta, but looking deeply into them reveals a darker side. Were her chest not at least a B-cup, she might be mistaken for a child, but her bone structure tells of maturity as well. Izanami is usually wearing a white, silk-like gown that complements her porcelain skin. This covers her chest and one shoulder, as well as her hips to her ankles, but leaves the rest plainly bare. She wears little jewelry, but does paint her finger and toenails white. What accessories she does have are usually limited to simple objects, like a plain silver circlet on her head, or a silver chain to hold her cross.

Bio: Once an heiress to a family owning a high profile clothing line, Izanami was born into a greatly priveleged, as well as greatly restrictive lifestyle. She was not allowed to go too far outside, and socializing was limited to close family, servants, and potential suitors. Makers of fine silk and garments, Izanami was destined to inherit her family's reputed business that catered primarily to high income buyers such as the elite of society. She found her prospects as a future business woman married into more money to strengthen the family stifling and stale. For that reason, the girl left her childhood home to pursue a more active lifestyle, ignoring her parents' disapproval. It was a bold move for someone raised in such a culture, and one that would define her as a person for years to come.

It was in a European monastery of Quincy that Izanami met the love of her life. Initially, he seemed to come off as somewhat air headed, but Izanami later discovered this to be a ruse. In truth, he hid his true emotions and opinions to avoid hurting or being hurt by others. Secretly, she pegged him as a closet sadist, and this was reinforced by their future encounters. Izanami did well in her studies, excelling in the spiritual arts where her schoolmate succeeded in historical ventures.

Upon passing an examination meant to test for mastery of the Quincy arts, she was initially placed within the medical units due to her great talent for healing. This eventually changed when it became apparent that she possessed a super prowess in actual combat situations, as her zealous hunting of Hollows in the field revealed more than a practice ever could. Izanami was soon transferred to the defense squads, her great technique and sense of justice outshining her capacity as a medic. It was through this units proximity to the research department that she reunited with her love.

In spite of the relationship she saw potential in, Izanami never got the chance to make it a reality. A great deal of hesitance and miscommunication between the two of them lead to her running off recklessly after a Hollow one fateful mission. Had she followed her heart, the girl might have realized the feelings were perhaps mutual, but she let worry consume her and drowned herself in the mission. Too late was she in returning to the monastery that she was unable to help defend against one of the first increasingly brazen Togabito raids.

Her home having been wiped clean of all denizens, Izanami could do little but wander and hope beyond hope that she might find survivors. It soon became clear that none made it out alive; the area was utterly infested with Togabito. Izanami was alone. She soon succumbed to her fears, despair, and the foolishness she had committed. It was then that her already fragile heart, made weak by her confused feelings for her companion, lost its innocence.

Seeking revenge, she set out for the Vatican. It was a place of holiness, and as she had learned during her studies, one of the many strongholds of the Quincy and like-minded individuals. With so strong a personality, and such vindication of her beliefs, Izanami became an unwavering force of purity. She utterly crushed the spirits of all Hollows and Togabito in her path. Even voices begging for forgiveness were strangulated without mercy and swept away by her overpowering will. Thus, she became a Quincy of great a terrible holy powers. This philosophy paved her way to becoming a Holy Virtue; she sought out the absolute purification of evil, and would not allow their intermingling with the living races for any reason.

So pure of purpose and resolve was she, that Izanami's holy powers grew to outstanding levels. Over the years she had stayed in the Vatican in the order of the Consecro, Izanami concocted numerous ploys to vanquish the Hollow and Togabito problem forever. One of these ploys had her seeking the service of the other Quincy. Highly religious, and with the aid of her holy spiritual pressure, she recruited many of the Quincy to her cause, receiving many nicknames. Among them was Gabriel, a messenger from the heavens, given to her as she was to spread the will of the universe to eradicate all evil. With a great degree of expertly practiced manipulation, Izanami issued a holy edict, declaring a crusade be carried out against Hollow kind. This order was followed with no objection; Quincy believed Hollows to be inherently evil, worth being wiped from the face of existence. Though only a small faction of Quincy followed "Gabriel" as their leader, purges carried out under her orders are partially responsible for the tension between Shinigami and Quincy today.

Spirit Weapon: Empty Skies
Izanami's Quincy weapon is not a bow, but instead takes the form of a pair of twin blades composed of Reishi. Each weapon possesses a hinge at the hilt that allows the blade to split into three prongs, each about as long a a short sword's blade. The blades are curved in a rough S-shape as well as sleek, gleaming silver and, when empowered, shine white. Overall, their appearance is vaguely reminiscent of a triple bladed sickle. The hilts are wrapped in gold cloth, and each pommel is decorated with a five-pronged Quincy cross.

Quincy Powers:
Arrow of Chastity - Identical in nature to the standard Quincy arrows, Izanami can combine the hilts of Empty Skies to created a makeshift short bow. This enables her to fight at a range, though she is most proficient in close combat. These arrows can vary in size, power, and number. As with her other techniques, this one has been custom named to reflect her purifying nature.

Chaste Blood - Identical to the Quincy technique Blut, Izanami can reinforce the blood in her veins with Reishi, greatly enhancing either her defensive or offensive capabilities, but never both at once. This enables her Hankou or Hakudo to be used to their full potential. As with her other techniques, this one has been custom named to reflect her incorruptible pure pureness.

Chastity's Last Stand - No different than Ransotengai, Izanami can support her broken body with threads of Reishi, enabling her to fight despite otherwise crippling wounds. This technique is so named because of her unfaltering purpose.

Dance of Saintly Purification - Izanami greatly empowers her Reishi blades, doubling Empty Skies reach and begins to move at maximum speed. She continues to relentlessly attack her foe for as long as she deems necessary, finishing with a greatly augmented three-slash combo from above, resulting in a triangular strike.

Quincy Vollstandig: Gabriel - named after that given to her by her followers, Izanami's Vollstandig is a relatively new Quincy technique that is a greater innovation of the Quincy Letz Stil provided by the Sanrei glove. By removing this limiter she gains access to her full powers, increasing her battle strength similarly to the benefits provided by Bankai. Unlike Letz Stil, Vollstandig is much more controlled, sacrificing the overwhelming power of the former for reusability. Izanami's released holy powers transform her somewhat, producing a large, disc-like halo over he head with an opening in the front, and turning her hair white. Behind her, a large, white, five-spoked Quincy cross is formed, it being twice her size. Her feet are adorned with winged sandals, and hovering around her right wrist is a large white bangle formed into a double helix. While in this form, Izanami has access to all of her Quincy powers, as well as a few new abilities.

Pure Saint's Divine Spear - The end spokes of Gabriel's giant cross detach and surround Izanami's silver bangle. Both they and the bangle are subsequently connected by a web of holy white reishi, and begin to spin rapidly. The charging process takes only a second to complete, and unleashes a powerful, very fast lance of destructive energy. This beam works like her arrows, and is essentially one very large and very strong arrow. It is capable of being swept around for two seconds before dispersing. The beam is about as wide around as someone's arm.

Virtuous Saint's Heavenly Crusade - The ring around the giant Quincy cross splits and attaches to Empty Skies, immensely extending their reach. This is a powered up form of Dance of Saintly Purification, and is difficult to dodge in close to medium range.

Virgin Saint's Holy Rapture - The giant Quincy cross completely separates before collecting into an orbit around Izanami's bangle. She then thrusts her hand into the sky, causing the structure to spin rapidly, and shine brilliant white. At the center, a large sum of Reishi is gathered over a period of one post before subsequently being unleashed in the next post. This attack locks on to her enemies' location at the time of firing, and releases white beams of destructive power. As many beams can be fired as there are enemies, with increasing power consumption.

Quincy cross description: Izanami's Quincy cross is pure white, consisting of a ring with five spokes extending past the circumference. It is simple in design, intentionally so as to remain pure and untainted by fashion.

Quincy items:
Assorted Ginto, limit five.

Chastity Belt - Izanami uses two Ginto to create a pentagonal cage. Though each vertex is unconnected, the space between them consists of a current of harmful Reishi, discouraging anyone incapable of breaking the cage from crossing. It can be moved via Izanami's will, and its size is variable. It is mostly used to limit the distance prey can escape from her, or protect weaker allies.

Grand Cross - Izanami summons a replica of her Quincy cross that is three times her size. It acts as a gravitational object, pulling in foes unable to manipulate Reishi. It's pull can be overcome by equal foes, but those with significantly lower power will find themselves bound to it. Lasts two posts and consumes one Ginto.

Role-play sample: Looking back, Izanami remembered the simpler times, back when she lived in her childhood home. The walls were garnished with silk, and the smell of pigments permeated some rooms. She was never asked to do anything there. Never fetch a pale of water, never stoke the fire, never go out and get down and dirty for any reason. Such a thing was disgraceful; unclean. It was one of the values she lived by, but the degree to which her parents took it was absurd. She was never allowed to explore her dreams. Her destiny was that of a caged bird: to be looked at and adored, but never amount to anything more than a trophy of eloquence.

Running away like she had was the best decision she had ever made. She discovered a whole new world beyond the walls of her family estate. Since coming to the monastery, Izanami had learned the values of hard work and effort. For the first time, she found joy in her life. The former heiress studied hard, learning the ways of the Quincy, even going so far as to learn some of their greatest techniques. Though an effectively an amateur, she eventually grew to be capable of pulling them off. By far, her greatest success was in the execution of Blut, one of the Quincy’s strongest powers. It made her the greatest protector of the monastery, and thus, she was often sent on missions to clear out encroaching Hollow activity.

It was one of these missions where Izanami found herself reminiscing. Sure, she could focus completely on killing Hollows, but that would only distract her from the painful thoughts of losing the man she had fallen for. Mere hours ago, Izanami found herself clumsily attempting to seduce him. One thing lead to another, and nothing ended up happening, or even beginning to happen. Izanamis request had been mistaken for its literal meaning, and he had gone to do the task as he thought she wanted. As misfortune would have it, Izanami took this as a rejection, unaware that he was simply that dense. Upset, she attempted to throw herself into this mission to greatly reduce the Hollow attacks that had been occurring as of late. As such, it lead them deep into the wilderness to strike at the heart of the problem, far away from the monastery she called home.

As she laid another corrupt spirit to rest, Izanami’s thoughts continued to wander back to the thought of the fact that she had very much been rejected today. Her accompanying party signaled to her that this was the last of the Hollow presences in the area. They were heading back to the monastery. Back to where he was. She could not bear to come face to face with him so soon after being shot down like that.

“Sorry, go on ahead. I’ve got something I want to take care of before I head on back okay?” Giving her best feigning of innocence, Izanami successfully convinced the other Quincy to return home. Izanami trudged deeper into the woods, finding a nice spot to relax and think about things. The girl sighed as she tried to reflect on the teachings of her religion. This was not the end of the world, it was merely a setback. She would need to find a new path and continue on. No matter how painful it got, she simply could not let one lost love get the better of her.

What would he do? He certainly would not sulk around like this. He would probably go about his merry way, trying again whenever things cooled down. Maybe that would work? Maybe Izanami could go back and try again. It was worth a shot, was it not? Sighing, she stood from the tree she had been using as a support. It was getting late. Judging by the position of the sun on the horizon, she had sent away the others around two hours ago. It was probably best to return before they sent someone after her.

Izanami leisurely walked back in the direction of the monastery, her hopes rising a little as she thought of how to approach him again. Maybe she had not been clear? It would not be unlike him to completely misread her intentions. Stopping in her tracks, the realization hit her like a ton of bricks. Of course! He had completely missed what she was trying to say!

“That…arrrgh!”

Stupid, stupid, stupid! How could she have overlooked that? Was she so shocked by his apparent rejection that she did not realize he had not read the underlying meaning in her advances? Of course that was it, this was him after all! Breaking into a sprint, Izanami attempted to hasten her return to home. Hirenkyaku augmented her movement, and she would be back in record time. She felt incredibly foolish to have jumped to conclusions so easily, but what was love if not something that would always through you off balance?

Then she saw smoke. A lot of smoke. It was black, like that produced from a roaring fire. Her heart skipped a beat. It was coming from her home! If it were perhaps even possible, Izanami quickened her pace. Now it began to feel like she was too slow, that the distance was taking longer to cover than if she had been walking casually. She could feel the spiritual pressures now. They were not Hollows. Whatever they were, their presence felt foul, even more so than that of the beasts she had been slaying all day.

As she drew nearer, she could feel their retreat. They would already be long gone by the time she got back. Had they been driven off? Izanami was afraid to scan the distance for the presence of her adopted family, but unable to resist knowing, she did anyway. Her legs began to burn as the search revealed nothing. Not even a flicker of spiritual power left.

After what seemed like an eternity, she arrived back at the monastery. Tears in her eyes, she screamed in denial of the situation. All around her were crumbled stone and incinerated bodies. Some were not burned, but instead had been eviscerated. She had to hold in her bile and avert her eyes. Unable to register the thought of having lost everyone she held dear, Izanami grew desperate as she begged and pleaded with a higher power that her love was somehow safe. He did not have much in the way of spiritual power, so he could have easily been overlooked. More importantly, she could have overlooked him in her desperate search for spiritual pressures.

Suddenly, her eyes were greeted by a sight that brought her to the brink of despair. “Iza…nami…,” he called her named as she knelt beside him, pleading for a miracle. “Don’t leave me,” she cried. Her prayers would go unanswered. The entire lower half of his body was ten feet away. “I…lov…”

He never finished speaking before death claimed him. Izanami felt her entire world shatter to pieces. Her family, her love, everyone. Everything. It was all taken from her in an instant. Exploding in rage and sorrow, Izanami’s unfettered powers blasted around her, leveling the monastery and all of its ruination to dust. All of the souls had ended up elsewhere after their deaths, some, but not all, would eventually be purified by Shinigami.

A few days later, after setting up a proper grave marker for her fallen kin, Izanami began to travel to the Vatican, where she had heard of a great sect of humans with strong spiritual powers. Along the way, she learned a few things. One, the feeling of hellfire and brimstone that she had sensed when the monastery was under siege, indicated the presence of Togabito. They were sinners from Hell who were damned to suffer for eternity for their sins. Such vile, evil beings killed her family and destroyed her home. She could no longer bring herself to feel pity or remorse for any of the evil souls whose acquaintance she had made. Along the way to the Vatican, she left a trail cleared of evil presences. No Hollow or Togabito would cross where she stepped, for fear of being obliterated somehow.

This ideal grew into a strong set of beliefs that carried into Izanami’s adult life. Such was her conviction that Izanami’s powers only began to grow exponentially. In her wake, all evil would be purified by her holy might. Never again would she allow her feelings to sway her judgement. By remaining chaste and pure, so too would her strength hold true, and she would never fail the ones she cared about again. When she arrived at the Vatican, she sought out the organization Consecro and pledged herself to them, pledged to remain pure in the name of defeating the Sins, the Togabito, the Hollows, and everything they represented as the greatest evils in the world.

“I know now, the folly of my past mistakes. Never again will I be so deceived by lust so as to forget my duties. My sword exists to purge evil from this world.”

Doctor is the member of the month. Ever since he joined, he's been extremely active, and really knows how to get things moving plot-wise. He was recently promoted to staff as well, and so far has shown great enthusiasm. He's also a friendly presence in the c-box, which is never a bad thing.

Gray is character of the month. Apparently one of the more popular characters on the site, well-known for his habit of stripping, which isn't good enough for Ulqui, but seems to do the job for his numerous IC fangirls. Has also earned (EARNED, not bought) numerous stat points in the past few months. Side note: Anyone who speaks of a gilf pairing will be shot on sight. :U
