My submission for
's Bleach OC contest.
It's quite big... but do full size it.
Name: Seraphina Light
Original Race: Human
Age: Looks approx. 14
Eye Color: White, no iris.
Hair Color: Black
'Zanpakutou' Name: Livraire
Position: Division 0 Squad Leader
During Livraire's pregnancy, The Soul Society started noticing great energy imbalances in the real world, recognizing her as the source. Though The Soul Society kept a close eye on Livraire Light, they never expected the catastrophe that was about to take place.
When her child was about to be born, a fearsome, mysterious force started absorbing her womb, and
soon her entire being, followed by everything around her...
In great hurry the Soul Society sent their agents down to find a way to stem the horrific
disturbance, who succeeded only after approximately a 12 km radius of the area had been wiped out,
absorbed into a dark cold void. The source was none other than Livraire's daughter, Seraphina, as named
by the Soul Society. She has since been placed under the direct care of both Division 2 and Division 12.
As the years pass, the nature of her powers and abilities have slowly been developed and understood.
The nature of Seraphina's zanpakutou, shikai and bankai release is very different in essence.
While most shinigami train to achieve their shikai and so on, Seraphina from the very start,
needs to supress her true Bankai. That was the cause of the major calamity. Her true Bankai
is a 'black hole', which absorbs anything and everything. As a newborn, the strength was still
considerably low, thus the Soul Society was able to, albeit imperfectly, device the Bloodstrings
to suppress her Bankai. Then, they manage to pour in enough amounts of combined energy into her
Bankai in order buy enough time to attach the Bloodstrings. This device essentially blocks her
key energy flow points, sealing her Bankai.
And so she was brought to the Soul Society and received training, under the aforementioned Divisions.
There are in total 6 levels of release (1 for her shikai), corresponding to the number of
sealed points. 2 on her head (in the redesigned form of ornamental hair clips), 2 on her hands,
and 2 on her feet. The shikai release is achieved when the right Hand seal is released. Generally
it looks like a giant blade, protruding from her right back, but in truth, she can turn it into
any shape she wishes, since it is non-physical. (Being brought up by Shinigamis, you can tell why
it looks like a sword).
As she releases more of the seals, the closer she gets to her true Bankai. Through years of training,
she has learnt to release the Bloodstrings up to a "designated level" of 2 of her Bankai.
*Level 4 bankai isn't shown in the Character Sheet, it is essentially same as True Bankai, but
designated Level 4 as a sign of "code red", which refers to the single instance the True Bankai
is attained. If, in theory her True Bankai is reached, and Seraphina is unable to control it, it
literally means the End, as there is now no more energy great enough to overload it in order to reattach
the Strings. Things should be quite safe nonetheless, because the Strings in their current design,
do not allow release beyond stage 3. Once a certain amount of release is detected, it (is supposed)
automatically implodes, and absorbs Seraphina into a "mini-void".
Seraphina named her zanpakutou after her mother. Note that it is not a separate entity, but IS Seraphina herself.
Note - Her level 1 and 2 bankai releases are shaped in the form of Giant hand/wings as they are
currently the most efficient form, they are essentially 'manageable' black holes, (as is her shikai).
Seraphina does not walk, but hovers around. She sleeps in a special device which attaches to her
back, in an upright position. Although she might look ghostly, she is generally friendly and
quite talkative. She is the current leader of the special Division 0, which has 3 other members.
She has no iris, but her eyesight is not affected.
Note on physical attribute
Since she is her zanpakutou (i.e - that of a blackhole nature), it is generally preferred that she does
not release even her shikai when in battle. This is because even without release, due to the nature of her
body, no attacks can possibly harm her as they will be absorbed and converted into energy , or released.
However given this nature, even with her immense ability at subconsciously controlling it, she still
remains a "time bomb".
