Name: Tetsuya "Tetsu" Shiba
Personality: quiet and easy to forget, Tetsuya is gifted with an over whealming lack of presence that means unless he is someones direct focus of sight, it is very easy to loose track of him, the same could be said of his personality, his voice is very soft and quiet to the point where if he is in a situation where people don't know he's there, he has to call out loudly just to be heard. Tetsuya does get very passionate about protecting his friends however.
Bio: Tetsuya was one of the very few who were not born within the protected area's of the soul society. Instead he started his life in the wild lands that were far away from even the most savage of the Rukongai's districts.
His father had been a Lieutenant in the Gotei thirteen until he was exiled for accidentally stumbling onto research that could have reduced the Seireitei into rubble. As such Tetsuya was raised by his parents in a small camp of other wild dwellers who had all been forced from Society for one reason or another. Despite this, Tetsuya grew to be well mannered and gentle, the influence of several of his extended family caused him to have a positive outlook on there situation and for much of his childhood he was happy.
When he reached his early teens however, Disaster struck in the form of hollows who came and killed everything he knew and loved, the creatures had obviously been bored because they let him go with only one injury, a large gash on his head. The hollows chased him for days, finding fun in trapping him and then after jeering and laughing as he stood cornered they would just let him run again.
One day however, just as they were closing in on the 99th district of Rukongai's boarder, the hollows decided to end there game, trapping Tetsuya who was still heavily injured and planning to eat him. the last thing he remembered before blacking out were the death cries of the hollows and the sound of blades slicing through flesh along with the black robes fluttering in the wind.
although he never got to meet his rescuers, Tetsuya joined the acaademy the next year. his injury resulting in such a low presence and making almost impossible to detect his spiritual pressure that he went through the six years without issue or even notice, all his teachers struggling to remember where he sat or what he even looked like.
Tetsuya now serves in the second division as Soi Fon, the division's Captain is one of few people who can notice him without problem. Although she knows of his Shikai, she is yet to know he has been training for bankai.
Rank: third seat of the second division and captain of the stealth forces third division who guard the maggots nest
Weapon name: blind side (jap version to come soon)
Sealed appearance: a basic Wakazashi with a white handel, it is plain in every way
Shikai appearance: in terms of physical appearance that sword does not change in shikai
Shikai powers: the swords ability is that it forces the opponants to focus there attention on anything but the sword, they struggle to look at it and this effectivly renders the sword invisable, although anyone with a high enough level could still fight by judging Tetsuya's movements, it would be harder to fight an invisable sword.
Bankai: *optional* the blade again looks the same, however now there are two and they are in the form of buster blade versions of a average katana and a wakazashi
Bankai powers: like with the shikai the bankai draws attention away, however the bankai draws attention away from both the user and the blade. This blade also has a few special techniques.
1. Vanishing drive. By throwing the wakazashi away from himself, Tetsuya can then use it to pull himself to its location at a great speed that is faster then a shunpo.
2. Phantom shot. The wakazashi can be linked onto the katana in a way that it looks like one blade. Using the base power of the sword it can be fire into the air unseen where it becomes inveloped in blue light and then fires off a barrage of kido daggers down at the opponant, when the barrage is over the wakazashi falls back to Tetsuya's hand.
3. Misdirection overflow. With this ability, Tetsuya is able to shut off his lack of presence totally, making it so that they cant take there eyes off him and become confused as they cant remember where he came from, this ability is best used in a fight where he has allies.
Extra feature: Tetsuya has a single bit of armour on his person, a shoulder plate on his right arm, the symbol for the stealth force etched into it by a skillful craftsman.
