    It took him many tries but Metabee eventually managed to lift the training bot without damaging it. At first, with each try the head was completely destroyed and with more tries this got better as he started to lift it successfuly but not without the claws digging deep into the head. The more he worked on it the less damage the bot took on until eventually it was picked up without a single scratch each time. It may not seem like much but this itself took considerable effort which made him have a longer rest. He thought that once he got the picking up right he could move onto attacking but the more he thought about it the less probable that seemed. Being able to extend his reach like this not only improved his attack but also his flexibility. He could use the claws to latch onto a boulder or a tree and pull himself in to dodge attacks but to do that he had to make sure that he wouldn't break whatever he wanted to latch onto otherwise it would be pointless. Another strategy he thought of was to blindside his opponents. Even if the claw attack missed he wanted to manipulate it to curve around and then pierce the target's back but to do that he had do make sure that he had good control over the energy because so far whenever he made too big of a movement the energy dispersed. Once Metabee felt that he was able to continue he again changed his training. This time he wanted to stack the bots on top of each other which would still involve the first stage of having to pick them up but now it would require more control in order to balance them otherwise they would just fall straight away, which they did. Forget three bots, he struggled to even put the second one on top of the first. Each new step proved to be a real test and he was sure that applied to the whole group. If Captain level Shinigami had trouble with the 'basic' actions in this mode then how long would it take for an ordinary Shinigami to truly master this technique? He wasn't very fonds of those odds but he knew that Kijin was a technique that only a certain few would be able to truly master while most would be stuck at an incomplete level. However, even an incomplete technique can be mastered to a high level so perhaps that would even things out. After just as many tries as the lifting stage and even more after that he was not a single bit closer than when he started. Metabee didn't even manage to stack two training bots together. However, he started thinking that maybe he set himself an impossible task to begin with. While the bots remained perfectly still they possessed a humanoid shape which is far from ideal for this sort of exercise. That's why using simpler things like blocks akin to a childrens puzzle would have been much simpler and yielded him more results than what he attempted. However, he didn't feel like it was a complete waste of time. Most of this training was trial and error to begin with and his control over the claw improved which allowed him to perform more delicate movements. With this realisation, rather than moving onto something new Metabee looked to the other two if they wanted to finish up for the day as he wanted to properly absorb what he has learned today as covering too many things would cause even more mistakes. However, if the two still wanted to continue Metabee would continue his lifting training though this time he will use his left hand instead of right.

    Metabee continued his training by getting some training bots and setting them on idle mode so that he could punch and kick them to his satisfaction. Figuring out the optimal shape of his energy would be the last step so before that he had to figure out many things. The Captain started with seeing the difference to his close combat ability when he was clad with energy. Even though this was meant to be a defensive aspect there were many ways to use your defense offensively, besides the dark element was never one for defense to begin with. Even though the other two said that they could be sparring partners when they were clad in energy he first wanted to have more control so that they wouldn't be injured which is why he started with the bots. He could see that his attacks packed more punch since he was clad in thick energy so it gave more impact and upon closer inspection he deduced that if he was to do a full strength punch it was probably enough to crack bones so he was glad he started with the bots. Just like the day before, Metabee let out many attacks with various strength behind them to try to get used to it and made a mental note each time. For now he would have to hold back quite a bit if he was to spar but against a real opponent he would still have to control his own strength not to hurt himself as well but in that case hurting his opponent would be his goal. Once he was satisfied, the Captain decided to move onto something else. Yoshirou wanted to fire off Kido from anywhere in his body which was useful but it would consume more energy so he took a step back and thought about basic attacks. Would it be possible to make a physical attack if it wasn't with your fists, legs or weapon? Theoretically, it should be since by definition the energy was an extension of his body. That means all he had to do was manipulate his energy into an attack, but how to do that? The simplest method that came to his mind was simply to extend his limbs. If your opponent can't get close because your range is too big that itself was an advantage. He put out his right hand and aimed at one of the training bots and then began focusing energy on his hand. Under his energy manipulation, the energy that was a bit like a formeless blob turned into what looked like claws around his fingers but the rest stayed the same. The claw then started moving forward as it extended from his real hand as it squirmed in the air almost like a snake but before it got too far it dispersed. He let out a sigh. Maintaining its shape and extending it away from his body currently required a lot of focus so if he lost focus the energy simply disappeared and returned to its normal length. Furthermore, he could feel that because he put so much focus on his hand the energy covering the rest of his body became considerably weaker. That wasn't something that he could solve in a matter of hours or a day. He would have to practice a lot to eliminate these flaws. After a couple of tries he finally managed to get the hand close enough to the bot to be able to do something. Before making any sort of complicated movements he first wanted to try to lift it. As Metabee moved his real fingers the energy fingers also moved accordingly so he lowered the hand over its head and made a grabbing motion with his hand but as he did the energy fingers dug into the head of the bot and crushed it like a melon. This made him lose focus and the hand disappeared. Since the energy wasn't his actual hand he didn't know the strength behind it and it would be harder to control. It was just like he thought. Even though they made a lot of progress it brought even more problems with it. Metabee kept up this exercise as his first challenge was just to lift the bot without damaging it and only once he succeeded at that would he move onto trying to attack with it.

    Metabee woke up at his usual time feeling rested and all his fatigue from the previous day gone. The schedule today would be same as yesterday where shortly after breakfast they would continue their training on Kijin and after that he wanted to try and visit one or two more squads. His first step was his normal daily routine which was to have a shower and wash himself before getting dressed and leaving. Just like the previous night they met each other in the dining hall and sat together. There was a small discussion here and there but since they covered all the important topics yesterday no new topics have been brought forward and they took a more relaxed approach since they didn’t want to start the day on a negative note. After breakfast was finished and everyone was satisfied, they headed to the training grounds and Metabee took his usual spot. The previous day his training simply focused on his Zanpakuto cutting ability but today he wanted to move onto something different. Yesterday Yoshirou was the one to try firing off Kido from his Zanpakuto but he thought that for now he would leave that to the Noble while he worked out different things and then they would share at the end of the day. It seemed like a much more efficient method. That’s why today he wanted to focus more on the defensive aspect by covering his body with energy. The first difficult tasked that he faced was actually to cover his body with energy. This was because it wasn’t the same as simply releasing your spiritual pressure and so he had to try harder than that. JDan and Yoshirou already had a lot of practice with this since that was what they focused on from the beginning but Metabee went with his Zanpakuto so this was his first try. He closed his eyes and focused himself before starting. Just like before first he gathered his dark spirit energy using the same visual image of a black circle with purple flames forming the circumference. Up to that point he had no problems but now he wasn’t going to be firing a Kido at someone but covering his entire body with it. He used the method he knew best and sort of just let it leak out slowly. That way he didn’t damage his body at all and he got the result he wanted, partly. Using this method would take way too long so it had no effectiveness in real battle. Before he could move onto other things he knew that he would have to master this step first otherwise learning the more complicated things would be pointless. That’s why for the first half of the day Metabee was simply trying to get a hang off ‘turning it on and off again.’ By that point, instead of letting it leak he let it burst forth from within which was much faster and only took 5 seconds to cover his entire body. Currently, it did not look like anything special as Metabee’s body was simply cloaked in purple energy which didn’t have any special attributes apart from being quite thick. However, he knew this was only because it was the beginning so its form would look much different in the end. Kido, and especially Bakudo were always used in a specific form or shape and finding his optimal shape is what he wanted to find.

    Yoshirou listened as Metabee gave his points and the discussion continued. After hearing him out, Yoshirou said that he would take care of trying to get the key or any information regarding it from the remaining Central 46 so he would just leave it at that. There was no harm in trying and who knows it might even turn out well so he wasn't against it. Regarding unforseen circumstances, the Noble couldn't deny that there have been rare cases of it but he still argued that there hadn't been any case of someone being able to escape Muken. Metabee too knew that but like he said earlier they should consider the risk as well. If the Sinners were to find a way out of Muken like they found a way to be able to break the chains of Hell then that would make the situation all the more worse. If they were to escape where would they be? Right in the middle of Soul Society. That itself was a big threat which is why he felt like they should take it into consideration. He answered Yoshirou,'Who knows? It was made for a reason so I definitely don't think we are the first. Though at the same time I am a bit curious as to what those beings are and what they are like. We haven't heard much of such big shots that were a threat to the world.' With this, they discussed the key topics for now and all three felt that it was a good place to stop for now so Yoshirou once again reiterated what the each of them should be doing in the time that they are not training. Metabee was tasked with visiting the remaining half of the Gotei which was something that they had decided on before. Afterwards, the three split up and went their own ways. While informing the rest of the Gotei did hold some urgency to it, he was feeling too tired right now to be able to do that so he decided to head to his room. He hadn't slept the previous night and with the added fatigue from their training it was no wonder that he was exhausted. Upon arriving in his room, Metabee decided to think things over a bit more as he was still coming to terms with everything. Not getting anywhere with his thoughts, he then decided to meditate a bit to keep himself in check before turning in early for the night.

    As he told the two of his opinion the listeners finished their food and also thought about what he was saying at the same time. When Metabee finished speaking, it was him that then took the time to quickly finish his dinner before it went completely cold. Yoshirou quickly gave him a response but he knew that a lot of thought was put into it and it was a valid response he didn't quite agree with it. Metabee shook his head,'You are correct about my status but in this case I doubt it will bring any use. My status won't just make the keys appear in my hand,' he said so as he showed his empty palm to make his point. The Captain then continued,'This is not the same as the Maggot's Nest where a whole corps is in charge of it. The Muken is strictly top secret and even Captains know little about it while general members wouldn't be able to tell you what it is or where it is. All of that knowledge belonged to the Central 46 and the Captain Commander was responsible for safeguarding it. Therefore, if no one knows where Emmell put the keys or stored a method to get in then unfortunately it is lost.' The only reason Metabee suggested breaking in is that thanks to his ability making a spare pair of keys wouldn't be a problem. However, being the most secret and guarded place in Soul Society it couldn't be as easy as simply putting a key in a lock and turning it. This meant that without any further knowledge it would be impossible to get into the Muken and he doubted that any member of any squad possessed such information. While it was a great idea to be able to seal one of the enemy generals forever currently he didn't see anyway that they could gain this ability. The Noble then commented about his opinion on Tsumikami getting out of the Muken stating that even the Soul King would have trouble getting out. However, Metabee thought about this problem a bit differently,'Under normal circumstances, yes but think of it this way: the chains of Hell are supposed to be unbreakable and all Sinners are meant to be bound by them and yet here we are. What should be impossible is a reality and you yourself have seen it.' Of course, he was talking about Sama'el and Baal who were no ordinary Sinners but the point was that if they were able to defy the binds of Hell then who was to say that they couldn't find a way to break out of the Muken? Yoshirou concluded by saying that they didn't have to decide yet which Metabee nodded to,'I know that my plan does sound very optimistic and it's easier said than done but I know it will be no easy task. Even if it takes the two of us to kill one of their leaders then we have to do it. Otherwise Soul Society will fall. Though we still have time so lets gather as many methods as we can to repel them.'

    As Metabee spoke, Yoshirou seemed to quickly understand what he was trying to convey but none of the two could be completely certain as to what would happen. Once again, they weren't left with much choice apart from simply trying it out or finishing the Kido and then make the small improvements. With that, the topic about their Kido seemed to finish here as they moved onto other things. The Noble told him that he didn't miss out much the previous night as he simple did paperwork until late while JDan didn't have anything more interesting to add to that. Metabee answered with an 'I see,' and then told his side of the things which impressed the other two, but if they saw the state he was in just before doing that then they surely wouldn't be as impressed, though they wouldn't find out about that to begin with. He didn't know how much the other factions have prepared so far, if at all but he really felt like they were making a lot of progress on their side. While it wasn't perfect, things seemed to be coming out really well. To add to this Yoshirou informed them of the research they have done on the Sekkiseki stone and how it could be used to immobilise immortal beings which is where their problem lay as even if they were to clash head to head with the enemy army they would not die. One possible solution that the Noble came up with was to seal the strongest enemies in the Muken which truly be an effective way to get rid of them. Yoshirou believed it to be possible but whether it was probable was something that all three wondered about. Ultimately, the two ended up looking to him for input. Metabee thought about it briefly,'Possible, theoretically it certainly is. Probable, I would say not. The first issue is that we simply do not have the access to the Muken. There is no Captain Commander that would have at least some access and there is no Central 46 to give us access either. If we want to get ourselves in we would have to quite literally break in. The second point is that we do not have a way to directly seal them either so the only method would be to teleport them using forbidden Kido. However, even if they are in the Muken then if they are not sealed properly then there is quite a high risk of them breaking out or escaping through means of suicide. Also we do not know if the gates of Hell will still force them back even if they are sealed.' It was definitely a good suggestion but as of now it had too many uncertainties to it to be used. They didn't have many options on dealing with it and were open to propositions and Metabee just had that sort of proposition in his mind. The Captain smirked slightly,'But you are quite wrong about their immortality. They can and will die. We will use precisely that against them. Just like us the Togabito experience death but they will come back. Just like us their forces will diminish as the battle goes on. Even if they come back it will not be instant. It will take some time for them to respawn and they will do so in Hell. For some this will take hours, but others days or even months. If you look at it from that perspective it is not as bad as it seems. We will have to find as many ways as we can to kill a large number of them before the initial close combat starts and then we will use that delay against them to make our push. Remember our objective is not to destroy Hell but to repel their forces. One way to win a war is to kill the other general. We will do just that. While our forces push them we will go after their leaders and kill of them. In the end, the majority of them are immortal bandits that are subjugated by a leader so if we get rid of them their strategy will also fall apart. However, no matter what unless we kill Baal then we will not win.'

    Just like Metabee, JDan quickly stated his approval of the name that Yoshirou thought up which seemed to please him. While it definitely took him a while to think of it the other two weren't very picky about the name. The technique was more important than the name after all so they would have agreed to anything that remotely sounds good. However, with the point that Metabee brought up the name might have more significance than just sounding cool. The two quickly thought about this possibility and with their knowledge and experience it would be possible for them to also shed some light on this. Yoshirou was the first to answer him as he stated that even if it doesn't give the technique more strength it would make it easier to activate which would be a good bonus in and of itself as it would make it more accessible to other Shinigami rather than Captain level people like Metabee or Yoshirou who had quite large reserves of spirit energy at their disposal. The Noble then reminded them that when you learn Kido you would always start with saying the name, a stage that they have passed a long time ago. While it was true in normal cases this was different,'I don't think it's quite that simple as you think. The Kido we learn are already completed techniques but Kijin is still incomplete. With our 'concept' of what Kijin should be in our minds, using the name on an incomplete version might even backfire on us. While it's still important to try out and gather data I don't think that we will see the full effect of the name unless we complete it.' JDan agreed on this point but also reassured them that if it was the two of them things would certainly turn out alright,'It has to,' Metabee thought,'For the sake of this world and it's future.' They continued eating and then he remembered that they still haven't actually caught up about what happened yesterday while they were separated so he asked,'What happened while I was away yesterday?' After getting a response Metabee would tell his side of the story,'Today in the early morning I visited squads 1-4 and informed them of the incoming threat. That means we have successfully united half of the Gotei by now.'

    In the end, both Yoshirou and JDan agreed that he will be staying as Metabee Ainsworth and not Vincent, something that he was perfectly fine with. In response, Metabee simply nodded his head and said,'Sure thing.' Still on the topic of names the focus of the conversation shifted away from Metabee and went to their new Kido technique as the Noble said that after a lot of thought he finally had a name for it, or at least a suggestion if they did not come to like it. JDan seemed very excited about what this name could be and the Captain too was quite interested as they waited for Yoshirou to speak. After a brief moment of suspense, they found out that the name he came up with was 'Kijin' which came from a mix of Kido and Zanjutsu. Metabee nodded his head,'Sounds good. I'm for it.' As JDan would give his opinion, it would be then that Metabee finally realised something, the importance of names. When he could next speak he would ask the two,'Do you think giving the technique a name will make it stronger? Usually, when you say the name of a technique it will have more power. I don't know if the same will apply to a custom technique we made ourselves, but if it will make it stronger then it's worth a try.' Even without the name pronounced, Kijin will turn out to be quite a powerful technique so maybe it's at it limit and a name won't make a difference. However, saying Kijin would take them but a second and if that was going to make any difference then they will surely utilise everything that they could get.

    Once again, Yoshirou diligently listened to his problems. It definitely wasn’t the right place and time for the conversation but it took place either way. Amidst all the bustle of the dining hall, no one heard or even paid the two any attention as they focused on their own lives. Therefore, even though the setting was far from private, the conversation would only remain between the two of them. The Noble didn’t comment on the story but simply followed with some words of encouragement. However, in terms of their encouraging effect they were a complete failure. Metabee was very aware that there was an infinite amount of possibilities and that there were most likely as many happy ones as tragic ones. However, what pained him the most is that he was stuck in one of the tragic worlds and couldn’t change it. Normally, when the results are bad he can at least fight back and attempt to change it, but when it came to this predetermined result there was nothing that he could do. He could only suffer as some higher being revelled in his pain. The Captain would inform Yoshirou of his opinion but he knew that it would lead to a philosophical discussion and that was something that he didn’t feel like having right now. He ended up simply accepting it silently. Not wanting a silence, the Noble followed with another question of if he wanted to be called by his real name from now on. This he didn’t mind answering but before he could another voice cut in as JDan joined them at the table and asked for the reasoning behind the question as to him it surely seemed out of the blue. Yoshirou didn’t fill him on the details of the story that he told him and simply informed him that it might have been his real name. Metabee took this opportunity to answer,’It’s up to you really. It wouldn’t be wrong but it’s not something that I’m used to either.’ He never did mind what people called him as long as it wasn’t offensive and it was the same with this.

    Yoshirou answered his comment in his normal happy tone. It was a perfectly normal response but after it silence fell. The atmosphere between the two became more awkward recently as Metabee was no longer as chatty as he was two days ago though it was clear to see that the others were worried about him. However, they didn't try to treat him any more different than they usually would and simply behaved like normal which was something that he greatly appreciated. He didn't want or need any of that and it would have only made the situation worse. The Noble then summoned up the courage and asked what his trial was. Metabee knew he was trying to lead into this ever since he completed it and their curiosity was fully justified as they saw him drastically change to an almost different person. The Captain stopped eating and gathered his thoughts. His response was,'Nothing.' That was the truth. His Zanpakuto didn't make him do anything. He was just shown a different and better reality. However, he couldn't leave it at that. Now was not the time to keep secrets from each other. He would simply have to grit his teeth and push forward. Metabee would then continue,'My trial was to make a simple choice between two alternatives. My Zanpakuto showed me another world in which I never became a Shinigami. There I had it all. In that world Elena never died. She was there with me for every moment of it. We spent our lives in the World of the Living. We both had jobs, we bought our big dream house which we worked so hard and long for. Even with the house, we felt that perhaps it was still a bit lonely so we adopted a dog who was just as happy. I saw Elena walking down the aisle in her pure white wedding dress as we got married. Then, in the end, among the bustle and the fireworks of New Years Eve she told me that she was pregnant. That is the world I was shown. I didn't simply see it but I also felt everything that happened. I had to decide in which world I wanted to continue living in.' The fact that he was still here and himself signified what his answer was. This concluded his summary of the trial but then he remembered one last detail which wasn't as significant,'Oh, and my real name is Vincent apparently.' Saying that, he was truly done saying everything that happened and now it was Yoshirou's turn to share his thoughts.

    Before they split up for dinner, Yoshirou said that it looked like they could finish before the schedule which made Metabee think. It was the second day of the second week which gave them five full days to complete the Kido. While it would be far from perfected he was also almost certain that they could produce something of substance but most likely not before the schedule since they might run into more problems that they didn't know of yet. In the end, he only answered with a 'Perhaps'. After his shower was done and he was dressed in fresh clothes, he headed straight to the dining hall which seemed to be quite loud this time. After entering, he saw a mass of people eating and drinking together. This was his idea after all. It was their first time that they actually made it on time for dinner where everyone was here, or maybe not since he wasn't here yesterday he didn't know how it turned out. Metabee looked around with his keen eyes and quickly spotted Teschma, Nero and Yoshirou though it didn't look like the three would be eating together since Teschma and Nero were sitting at a table with some Clan Members. Yoshirou too quickly spotted him and waved as he went to get a table. Metabee nodded in response and now it was his turn to get his food so he got a plate and picked out some food that was still left and food that he really liked which made his plate look full but it was a small mix of everything, though that was how all you can eat buffets usually ended. After he was satisfied, Metabee joined Yoshirou at the table and even though JDan wasn't here yet the Noble had already started eating and so the Captain didn't hesitate either. It was better warm, right? The Noble greeted him by saying that it was a totally different experience when everyone was here to which Metabee agreed,'It is. It's nice.' Yoshirou then continued saying that this must make him miss the Kido Corps but the Captain shook his head,'It's only been two days since I've seen them. I'm not as clingy as you.' He didn't have any ill intent in saying so, it was simply a small jab/tease about his personality. Yoshirou then thanked him for being here and helping out. Metabee answered,'It's alright. Thanks for having me and putting up with me.' Even though he wasn't in the mood now, he did have fun before and appreciated all the things that the've done for him.

    When he woke up, the other two immediately approached him as they were done with their training and Yoshirou asked him how things went. Metabee nodded,'It's a start but there is still much to do. It's quite impressive how much potential this technique has and how powerful it is. It was a really good idea so if you have anymore let me know. We should be able to finish it by the deadline but now I could use some food.' Having agreed on this, the three would put away the training bots before heading to their respective rooms where they could have a quick shower. Since they would be eating together, Nero and Teschma will probably be there and possibly even more clan members if the time was right which he didn't bother checking. He didn't want to look sour in front of everyone but the fact did not change that he was still not in a very talkative mood. However, he knew that the others were worried about him and so at the very least he wouldn't be isolating himself anymore. These were his thoughts during his shower and once he was done with it Metabee got himself dressed again and headed down to the dining room to act on them.

    Metabee kept training with his Zanpakuto and had to take breaks at least for 10 minutes every hour. While coating just the Zanpakuto took far less energy than the complete Kido would, it did still require a constant energy supply which was exhausting for anyone even if they had a large supply of energy. However, he did notice that it was now easier than before and didn't take as much of a toll on him. Before the trial, just using the modified Kido made him feel as if the dark energy was burning him from the inside and suffocating him,but now it didn't have that much of an impact on him. It must have meant that the trial made him even more attuned to dark energy. During one of his breaks, the Captain looked at what the other two were doing to see if they came up with some revolutionary way for this though it didn't seem like it. Yoshirou too started by coating his Zanpakuto and was fixed on firing from Kido from his weapon. It was the point of the Kido after all but it seemed like he felt more comfortable so he probably had more practice while they weren't looking. As for JDan, being the defensive guy he started by coating his body in his earth energy and trying out various moves that would work equally well as defensive and offensive. Even though he watched, in the end he took away nothing from it. He had to figure it out for himself and so he continued the same monotone training he had been doing up until now. Time passed and eventually he was too exhausted to continue as he hadn't slept in more than 30 hours now with half a bottle of vodka and mixed and matched breakfast. He lay on the ground looking up at the sky, not really thinking anything until he fell asleep. When he woke up it was dinner time and this time he would choose to dine with the rest.

    Metabee continued training with the waves for now as he tried out various stances and motions as well as strengths and weaknesses. It was quite useful to be able to launch an attack by simply swinging one's sword and especially when it didn't cost him any energy to do so. This was because the dark waves produced by his Zanpakuto were a by product of the energy that was already covering it so it required no extra energy to use it apart from maintaining the Kido. Being satisfied with this, the Captain decided to move onto something else. He got the training bot that Yoshirou mentioned earlier and set it up to be stationary so that he could swing at it. First, he tested out the waves he was using before to attack it and try to pinpoint specific body parts but it proved harder than it looked. These waves were quite big so even if he aimed for a body part it would hit the rest of the body. This meant that if he actually wanted to dismember his opponent he would have to swing horizontally or vertically. He did so as he sent a vertical wave to cut off the bot's left arm right at the joint and then he followed up with a horizontal wave which removed its upper body. He didn't have to worry about the damage as the removed parts quickly came back. Metabee then moved on to actual physical swings to see how much sharper the blade would now be. Once again, he tested various stances and strengths but the result wasn't surprising. His Zanpakuto was coated in raw dark energy so of course it would be sharper and required less energy to lethally damage his opponent. This was what he expected from the beginning but it would still prove useful against his opponents especially if they were to have a Hierro like Arrancars do so he wasn't disappointed. However, doing it on an inanimate target still didn't reveal the properties of the energy itself so he had to test it out on a living being. He decided on himself as the Captain sliced his left hand. Blood exploded from his handas pain overcame him. There was a lot of blood, much more than one would expect when they cut their own hand. Black mist was escaping his wound and it felt slightly deeper than what he accounted for so if he hadn't been careful he could have been one hand less right now. Metabee immediately started healing his hand but noticed than it took longer which in turn required more energy. Looking at his now healed hand he had figured out the effects of this energy. It was a curse that increased the bleeding of wounds and made them harder to heal which could prove quite lethal to races which relied a lot on high speed regeneration. This meant that it would be perfect against their Tsumikami opponents.
  15. Metabee

    Kyouraku Mansion

    When he entered the training grounds, JDan and Yoshirou instantly stopped training and ran up to him. Straight away, the Noble questioned him if he was fine which showed their concern. Metabee answered,'It's fine,' but said nothing more. He was then asked about the training,'Continue. I have nothing else to tell you. From now what shape and form the Kido will take is up to you. You know best what will be the most suitable for you so we just have to go with that. Though, instead of trying to do everything at once you can split it into a offensive and a defensive aspect first so when you get both of those down and combine them then that will be your Kido.' With nothing more to say, the Captain would go to his usual spot and begin if the other two also agreed. He was definitely the offensive type so he would start with that first as he unsheathed his Zanpakuto. Now that they passed the trial they would be able to cloak their weapon in the energy so he figured that should be the first step to go. However, the question was how much energy was required and what kind of shape it should be given. He closed his eyes and thought about it. Destruction. That's what his Zanpakuto was about. This meant that the energy couldn't be calm or flowing like a small stream. He had it. The most optimal shape would be a fierce torrent of energy which he now imagined. He then gathered dark energy using the same visual concept as before; a black circle with purple flames creating the circumference. Another point was that since this would be a constant Kido he would not be able to just gather energy and then release it and instead he would have to keep gathering energy and pumping it out for the Kido to maintain its form. He did as he thought and released the dark energy onto his Zanpakuto which caused a burst of energy around the blade but soon it stabilised and took its final form. The energy constantly kept moving and its shape was quite sharp as the outline of it resembled small razor blades which definitely increased the cutting potential of the Zanpakuto. The dark energy was so concentrated that the blade was covered with small sparks here and there and black smoke was emerging from the blade itself as it was in glee over being in its natural element. Metabee swung his Zanpakuto but little did he know that a wave of dark energy was released as he did. This was another benefit of the Kido and one that he had to get used to so his next step was doing some practice swings. The stronger the swing the bigger the wave however, if the swing was very fast then no matter the strength only a thin wave would be produced that did not travel very far while a weak swing or a thrust did not produce any sort of wave. It would definitely be useful in battle but he has yet to learn everything about this stage and simply had to keep looking for more attributes that could help him.
