    First Division Barracks

    Quite a bit of time had passed since Kaeru had returned from the void prison he had been in for four years. During the last few weeks he had been working on getting himself prepared to take the next step in his "recovery" plan. First he learned that the proper names of his zanpakutos were Yin and Yang. Then he started to work on his skunko skill set in his family's dungeon. Visiting the Central Forty-Six he regained all of his memories and was charged with a short amount of time in the role of Vice-Captain for the first division before he could apply for a Captain title and eventually Captain Commander unless they found someone more suited for the role before then. From there he went in search of one of the more powerful souls in Soul Seireitei to confront as a way to show he was ready to return, but while he had perfectly scouted out the area and level of threat he was not counting on this self proclaimed "Khan" Möröödögch to have a pair of zanpakutos of his own working in harmony with him until first release. He almost died that day had Hitsuyona Shizukesai in vaizard form not shown up at the last minute to say him. Being able to escape after getting thoroughly throttled he took the time he needed to recover before heading back home to House Kaeru in order to request training from his father Xarm Kaeru. A battle broke out in while Xarius was the victor earning the right to use the Kaeru Dungeon once again for his training without having to sneak in. Standing outside of the First Division Barracks house Kaeru waited for those that were going to give him the test to show up. The building behind him was where the offices and living quarters of the Shinigami of the First Division. The building that stood out the most was the assembly hall where the captains would gather for their meeting. Especially during the times when the Captain-Commander was under the First Division banner. The Central Great Underground Prison is located directly below the barracks. Each facet of this barrack was something to pay attention to as they seemed to connect to something important. There are three different ways to become a captain for the Gotei Thirteen; Captain Proficiency Test, Personal Recommendation, or Trial by combat. The Captain Proficiency Test is a test that requires the shinigami to have the ability to perform Bankai. This is the most common method of becoming a shinigami captain. At least three existing captains of the current members, including the Captain-Commander, have to witness the results of the test. Personal Recommendation, to have at least six captains and approval from at least three of the remaining seven. Trial by Combat is simple the ability to defeat a captain in one-on-one combat with at least two-hundred witnesses from the captain's division. One by one Captain Sif Barkuz of the First Division, Captain Mikoto Shuu of the Second Division and acting Captain-Commander, Captain Elevander Jecht of the Fourth Division, and Captain Regashi Hokori of the Fifth Division arrived entering the hall. Sif already being in the area had stepped away from his paperwork duties to do this test with him. Soon followed Regashi coming in with Elevander as they were doing some joint squad training on this day before the test. The last to show up was the ever wary acting Captain Commander Shuu that seemed to always be in a state of exhaustion or at least unwavering tired expression. With all four captains now in the area they head directly into the Assembly Hall as the only five members. Closing the doors behind him Kaeru wandered over to the middle of the room directly across of Sif, Mikoto, Elevander, and Regashi awaiting their orders as he was not conflicted in the other guys. "Alright Vice-Captain Xarius Kaeru we are here to witness your taking of the Captain's Proficiency Test. As per the requirements there must be at least three total shinigami for that off load, one of which must be the acting Captain-Commander," Elevander explains the profession in an almost bear bones way so that anyone could understand what they were about to do, "The floor is yours whenever you are ready." His mind was fixated on the Gotei Thirteen's primary responsibilities consisting of: The defense of the Seireitei, the deployment of Division members into enemy territory for combat operations, the deployment of task Forces as defensive measures in the Human World. Regashi steps forward and away from the spot right next to Shuu as his arms as he steps forward to say, "I'll be the one to test your skills." With the doors closed Kaeru began to speak out the words with confidence as he gripped both of his zanpakutos, "When shady side of mountain meets the sunny side of mountain, Yinyang Taijitu. Bankai." With that a burst of wind explodes worth showing off his full power for a brief moment. A massive yinyang diagram appears beneath the frog and everyone within a short distance, three of each katana that looks just like his shikai yin and yang blades will come up from out of the ground near him as he is now clad in black samurai armor with white lining. "Kagayakuyoru no odori," he commands four of the six blades to rise up from the ground in order to get the blades to fly around heading towards Regashi. This continue for about five minutes before he dove into explaining some of his abilities and skills within his bankai. Kaeru goes on to explain to the captains in attendance how his "Taijitu Crests" work sort of, but not how they fully work. They spend a good while talking about how he uses his bankai and the effects it has in correlation with others like him. There is a short moment during this time when Xarius also begins to show them that he remembers all of the Academy level kido and that he has remastered the Kaeru family Skunko Technique known as the "Gift of the Sea God". There is a small murmuring with the remaining captains that had not been physically judging him, but rather were judging him for by how he handled himself and spoke about the issues at hand. This takes roughly an hour to go through each one and explain how much he has been working on all of this. At the end of this conversation the four huddle up to discuss how the test went and just what to do next. Kaeru did not have to wait on them to deliberate too long as they split up to speak with him again. "You have passed the Captain's Proficiency test with ease as you are using the bankai to full effectiveness currently," Shuu stated keeping his arms crossed as the zanpakutos of Kaeru are being put away and Regashi getting up from the sparring match, "Now Sif will speak to what will happening during the transitioning of the First Division over to you as their Captain." Stepping forward the former captain Sif wasted no time in talking straight forward, "As of right now the First Division has no special duties, however this is something you can tailor to your own liking, the Division how you want as their Captain. There are several outstanding role model members within the First Division that have not returned recently. The big difference is that I will remain the Director of Administrative Affairs." "Now with all the formality stuff out of the way here you go," Shuu states as he pulls out a freshly made First Division Captain over coat handing it over to Kaeru, "Remember this is just over the First Division, for Captain Commander you will have to prove yourself against all kinds of deadly threats and the Central Forty-Six is apprehensive about anything to do with the title. So be mindful with your next few steps as you are going to continue to be watched for an undisclosed amount of time." "That is fine with me," Kaeru replies as he slowly reaches out to grab the overcoat just after pulling off the Vice-Captain's badge to trade with Captain Shuu, "I have been proving myself to others my entire life. This should be no different and there is still much to be done within Soul Society as a whole, though Seireitei and Rukongai each have massive problems that need to be addressed. Becoming a captain again will allow me to really push into that as I reconnect with old friends and make new ones." The overcoat had a Chrysanthemums insignia on the back that stood for Truth and Innocence over his Shihakusho. Another step closer to becoming the Captain Commander, but from now until then and then after that he would be working on becoming more power than he was before in order to push the world at large into being a better soul.

    Noble House: Kaeru

    Stepping down on the ground just outside of the Kaeru Noble house gates Xarius took a moment to gather his bearings. Since returning he had avoided talking to most of his family except for when he had come by to do private training in the family dungeon. Those times he was linearly focused on the path to recover who he was instead of who he was now. Living was harsh and thus provided equally harsh lessons that one's life was not something that could be so easily planned out. There were reactions to every action. Standing outside the gates was not Xarius' plan nor was sneaking in to use the training grounds, even if that was the exact reason he had decided to come back to his childhood home. Life was short and some times a near death experience provided a soul with some much needed perspective. To most the frog had been dead for four years now and his return was not something that could go unquestioned. With his return the unbalance of Soul Society was one of many things he noticed right away, that included the time before getting his memories back. The return to his family proper was the next difficult step in his attempt to get back to some semblance of normal. Rolling his head around to crack his neck a few times Xarius took a step through the two large stone pillars with tree frog statues at the top. "You got some stones thinking you are just going to walk in after what you pulled the other day," the voice of his older brother Wyatt could be heard from his right. The family prodigy was very similar to him in appearance minus the battle wounds and dual zanpakutos. "Good to see you too Wyatt," Xarius responded cordially towards his older brother as he continued to put one foot in front of the other up the steep stair steps, "I assume the old man is in?" The question was more rhetorical as he knew exactly how unbusy Xarm Kaeru the patriarch of the Kaeru Noble House was from a day to day basis. There was a time when Xarm was one of the most feared shinigami in all of Soul Society, but those days were long before Xarius was born. Myths and legends were all that remained of a time when the great noble houses could not agree. The Kaerus had to earn the title of Noble house through years of hard work and favors, but that day did come. Since then they turned out some strong shinigami officers, most notably himself as Captain Commander of the Gotei Thirteen for a short period of time. This rise was met with a lot of backlash from the family as they believed taking a title higher than Captain was beneath a noble house member. This was a form of control to get a say in how house Kaeru operated. The real issue was that he worked to keep the house Kaeru and Gotei Thirteen duties separated, something that only irritated both sides of the fence. Wyatt followed closely behind Xarius up the steps not saying another word as they moved along. Not all of his siblings were meant to do something for the Gotei Thirteen. In fact his oldest brother Daj was gifted with making and maintaining a lot of the buildings within Seireitei. Wyatt the next oldest was well educated and good at almost anything he put his mind to, hence why most view him as the prodigy of the Kaeru house along with being the heir to the family line if Xarm ever passed. His only sister, older at that, was Rin married off a noble within the Central Forty-Six and does not really spend time with the family. Finally there was the youngest child Ank the genius, who was an up and coming shinigami in the making that currently was in the Shino Academy. Each and everyone had a connection to bringing House Kaeru some level of status improvements, that included Xarius before he left even if the family did not approve of the titled position. Reaching the top of the steps Xarius looked around at the several buildings that squared in the main house in the center. Directly in front of him the walkway led into a courtyard at which he could see his father Xarm Kaeru impatiently awaiting him to approach. He could tell that Wyatt was falling back where he was parallel with the buildings on either side. His brother was not the only one in attendance as he could see each and every other Kaeru House member slowly creep out to watch the long awaited confrontation between father and son after four years. Really longer than that as his disappearance had come during a time when the two really were not talking because of a disagreement on ethics and loyalty. "Disappear for four years without a word to anyone, you return without saying a word to your family, you come in a use our facilities like nothing has happened, and then you return to talk only after you get your ass handed to you," Xarm bellows out in the direction of Xarius as the two were now within twenty yards of one another. "Everyone is a means to an end for you. How do they help you? How to they fix your problem? How do you get them to make your life easier? Yet here you are coming to ask for our help and resources again when you should already have all of that within the Gotei Thirteen. Wait... they did not hand you your title right away? Making you earn it all over again. The fact they even let you in the door is astounding," Xarm continued to shout and point out how he viewed his long lost sons recent actions. "Everything you say can be turned right back around and pointed right back at you," Xarius stated without hestitation as he continued to close the gap with his father. Out of the corners of his eyes he noticed that there were house guards surround him like they could take him, this showed just how weak they viewed him. Even those in his own house thought he was a shell of his former self, this was something that was about to change. "But what you say is true to some extent. You have access to something I need again and that that is why I am here, to properly ask for training once again." The frog lowered down to one knee a humbling experience as the murmurs in the crowd could see that a change was coming. The pride he had before was pushed to the side, the faults of yesteryear were not going to get in his way of forging a new future for himself. An explosion of raw reiryoku could be felt across the way by Xarius as his father leaped the distance knee striking him to the top of the head driving him backwards. Sliding to a stop he looked up to see Xarm in the advanced battle technique known as Skunko. This technique combined three of the core skills for Shinigami in Hakuda, Kido, and Hoho. Shunko specifically uses the physical techniques of Hakuda while pulling in the spell like techniques of Kido, often using Hoho to capitalize on the increase in power. The raw reiryoku flowing off Xarm's body was a sight to behold as he was the one that had perfected the "Gift of the Sea God" style. This version of skunko drew upon the element of water in a flowing and whirling motion. A minor flashback within his mind reminded Xarius of a time he was training with Mikoto Shuu under his father's tutelage. There were many days they both wanted to give up, because maintaining and controlling the raw kido elements were just too difficult. Even if Shuu was not of the same elemental type, all skunko styles use similar methods in how they approached combat. The Kaeru Hakuda style relied heavily on leaps and jumps to generate more force. Throw in a protective whirling water kido and the attacks were even more deadly strikes than just the standard punches thrown. "You should not of done that..." Xarius replied in an eerily calm tone as he slowly released his reiatsu in order to active his own water element skunko, "While I might have been gone for a few years, you seemed to have forgotten your honor going for that kind of an attack." There was a time when Xarius had complete mastery over his "Gift of the sea god" skunko techniques. That was why he was here to get the training to remember how to control his unstable form, yet his father had other plans. This was a show of power and forced respect something this frog was not about. The next leaping knee was easily block with a water protected arm block. Xarm followed that up with a couple punches that were also deflected by an open palm technique. Xarius used the opening to try to land a high angled heel drop kick that his father had to block with both arms cracking the ground underneath him. Gathering the water into dragon like heads he used the raging tidal wave punches to counter his father's exact same punches. Jumping backwards they both started to use similar attacks on one another trying to gain the advantage. The distance fighting started with each of them hurling ball sized whirling water that collided with each other and exploded with force. Next they both pulled the whirling water armor off their bodies in a wave like motion in order to use the Roar of the Leviathan technique on one another. These massive streams of water in snake like forms slithered through the air until they crash into the other a couple times ending in a downpour of rain as they were evenly matched so far. This was where the fight would shift as the size of Xarm was greatly different than that of his much smaller son. Going for the signature Piercing Fist of the Leviathan Xarm was telegraphing too much as he had seen this "finishing move" a time or two. Bracing himself for impact the explosive water wave after the punch impact that he just had to use his iron defenses to survive brushed him backwards. Xarm was visibly shake at this point as he was not sure how this weakened version of his son was able to withstand his strongest attack. Wasting not time in shock Xarm generated a second Piercing Fist of the Leviathan, but this time he was prepared for the attack in a different way. Waiting for the last moment he dodges his father's second attack spinning around in a lowered fashion as he brings his right leg back around using the momentum to give his father a heel kick to the face. This attack drove the larger frog back staggering for a moment before Xarm fell to his butt in exasperation. "ha ha ha," Xarm laughed to himself as he looked over at his son still standing ready to fight, "Looks like you are not as far removed as the others claimed you were. That spinning back heel kick of yours is as deadly as the last time I was hit with it. So be it, the training grounds are available to you once again Xarius." This was a conceding motion by his father and a show of new respect for one another, even if this was a small gesture in the younger frog's mind. He was not going to be picking at a time like this. "Just try to visit for more than just training. You were missed by some of the family, maybe take some time to say hi every once and a while," Xarm advised as he was helped up off the ground dusting himself off. "Thank you," Xarius kept his words short and sweet as he knew there were a lot of things he wanted to ask and say, but for now this was going to be where he would allow things to rest. With access to the training grounds properly he could go further his training in shunko and prepare his bankai in order to complete the captains test here in the coming days as the review with Shuu was nearing. Having his skunko perfected during the time of the test was going to be one of his key points to showing he was ready to get back to the status of at least captain, captain commander was another story. That much was certain as he knew there was a lot more he had to knock out on the Gotei Thirteen knowledge base before that would be be a real possibility.

  6. A week had past since the fight with Möröödögch and Kaeru was still recovering within the walls of the First Division Barracks. His Captain Sif Barkuz had ordered him to bed rest for the running off on his own without back up. Sif was as by the books as the frog remembered him to be when the man was his vice-captain before the disappearance. Older, wiser, and higher status had a way of elevating some while giving others a since of false importance. The Captain did not waste a move nor did he get involved in other squad's politics, because of this alone he had been keeping the First Division operating at a serviceable level. If only my body was to the condition it was when I was the Captain Commander... Kaeru thought to himself trying to give himself a veil of self assurance that he could of survived that fight. Reality was that man was as powerful as the reports had stated he was, but there was something off and the frog could not shake it. There was no doubt within his own words at the time, even now he was convinced his words rang true. That however did not discredit the words of Möröödögch. They were worth at least worth pondering about that much was for certain within his own mind. The last words he heard from Möröödögch as Kaeru made his retreat had left a lasting impression upon his waning soul. Was he capable of making a difference? That was a loaded question for the frog to try and sort through as this could be applied to more than just Soul Society as a whole. From within the Gotei Thirteen he could definitely invoke the most change, but there was a lot of work to do before he was going to be able to get that sorted out. Being allowed to live was a luxury if he was being honest with himself as Möröödögch had him dead to rites. To fix was the aim, but not for anyone else as his drive was always to make things better for all of those around him. Since coming back to the Gotei Thirteen and regaining his memories Kaeru had been focused on the point of proving he was capable of being the shinigami he was when he disappeared. Pulled into meetings with Captains and the current acting captain commander Mikoto Shuu of the Second Division. These meetings had lead him to getting those memories, reminding him of his noble birth and rise to power. While the memories coming back were super beneficial, they served more as a reminder of what he was not, he was not strong any more. The trouble was Kaeru had not taken the time to properly prepare himself for actual combat and had pushed himself to the brink of almost death. Literal death this time had the leader of the detention unit Hitsuyona Shizukesa stepped in to say his pathetic life. There was a great need to get a grip on his former skills and get his connection with his zanpakutos back to full power. Actually all of his shinigami skills were rusty and needed technical work. This would require him to swallow his pride and ask for some help to get back on track after this major set back. The idle thoughts of Kaeru were interrupted as he caught the door to his room sliding open slowly revealing Captain Sif Barkuz. The adult pale skinned humanoid male has brown hair and light blue eyes, and numerous distinctive tattoos wearing the traditional shinigami outfit with a captain's cloak over top and wielding his dagger sized zanpakuto. "Looks like you are finally ready to get out of bed," the Captain stated sliding the door closed, but not before the frog noticed there were two other shinigami lined up outside as guards. The worst kept secret was that with the frog being back he was aiming to take his former rank back, this would result in replacing the current Captain that was now sitting down across from him. Sitting up slowly off his bed roll on the ground Kaeru winced in some pain as he looked to his right to see his shinigami outfit folded up to the right of him. Just past that lay his two zanpakutos Yin and Yang under his vice-captain badge. Drawing in a deep breath the frog weighed his mind, heart, soul, and body's current state of balance. That balance was in disarray and that was something he was going to work at getting back on track. Those insecurities would have to be pushed to side as the Captain was no doubt here to question his actions and methods, these would then be reported to the acting Captain Commander and the Central Forty-Six. "Captain Barkuz," Kaeru addressed the man properly as he was now sitting straight up preparing for the difficult conversation. "Did you lose all sense over the last four years?" Sif asked in a gravely serious tone towards the frog, "What you did was not only irrational, but quite possibly made an enemy of an Rukongai targets we have been tracking for years. As Captain Commander you were much more calculating and calm minded, the type that would not of rushed into a fight or goaded a brutish type like that into beating yourself nearly to death. Did you think dying would somehow help Soul Society in some way?" There was a pause that Kaeru took to think over each question in an attempt to answer them honestly. For him the four years was a blink of time, did not feel like four years, yet there was more than one thing different about him since he had returned. The irrational comment struck a cord as he was trying to do what he had always done, but this time he was the one that took the bait playing to the Rukongai man's terms and turf. He had always rushed into fights to help his allies not really ever fighting one on one as there were strength in numbers. Dying was never the goal, but there was a calming acceptable once he realized the man's blood lust was far too great for his current power and skill levels. "Getting beat to death was not the initial part of my plan..." Kaeru dryly spoke in response to his captain, "Scope out the area that Möröödögch had taken over within Rukongai Districts. Approach and study his closest allies and the man himself. The home base in the steppe while the size of a village was not hard to assess the defenses, completely relying on that man's power. Stepping in was an attempt at conversation or awareness, but things became clear the only way I would get any respect or information would be in I fought the man on his terms. My usual fighting style proved to be less than ideal against this man." "That much is certain," Sif replied as he crossed his left hand over top of his right hand, "Not everyone understands the reason we do what we do, that much we are aware of but since you have been gone we have been spinning our wheels. Rukongai is one of many things that we are struggling to keep from exploding. That Möröödögch and his forces are but one example of an issue we are dealing with. Taking a squad with you to investigate the area should of been the entire mission. Confront the group on our terms, not his as we always try to do. And if that was not achievable? If you truly felt approaching him was the best course, then you should of gathered back with reinforcements beforehand." This exact conversation was one he had given to others within the First Division when Kaeru was the Captain Commander, this stung in a way he had not seen coming. Often he spent time with up and coming shinigami on the importance of patience. Yet here he was acting impulsively and pushing things past his limits. There were all kinds of tools in his arsenal, such as bankai, shunko, or kido arts. Yet he used almost none of them as he felt he should be able to win with a simple shikai release and zanjutsu. The miscalculations in power and the immediate synergy of Möröödögch's dual zanpakutos with their abilities was something even he could not plan for in the middle of battle. Though, his primary fighting style relied on him being able to adapt to last minute information. "In any case," Sif starts to say as he begins to get up from the floor into a standing position, "Your time as a Vice-Captain is limited, take this time to re-familiarize yourself with the Gotei Thirteen and learn what is different from when you were the Captain Commander. I suggest that you to talk to Senior Administration Officer Oriru Ryuka Kusho, he is also the twentieth seat of our Division. He will file all the information you were able to gather from this event and be able to advise you on some areas of improvement. I let him know to keep his schedule somewhat open to get this information recorded and filed for planning purposes for the inevitable next clash with this figure. Things are different than when you were here last, try to remember that before your rush to your death again. Gotei Thirteen needs the stability of what you used to be, try to remember that as you floundering in self pity a while longer. The events going on all around us will not wait for you to get caught up again." Standing up fully he wanders over to the door placing his left hand on the sliding door pausing to add, "The next time we see one another will most likely be when you are taking the Captain's test." With that the Captain exits the door sliding it closed before walking away with the two lower seat officers leaving Kaeru in his room. Looking down at his own calloused hands the frog balled them into fists as he leaned forwarded pressing the knuckles of each hand into the bedroll feeling the hard ground underneath as he uses the leverage to stand up. Stepping over he grabs up his gear up off the ground sliding the vice-captain badge over his left bicep, yin zanpakuto into his belt over his right hip, and the yang zanpakuto strapped to his back. He needed to train in a few different areas, but that would have to wait until he found this Twentieth Seated Oriru Ryuka Kusho of the First Division. [WC: 1,777] [Exit thread]

    The Warrior Khan Of Rukongai

    The body was breaking down before Kaeru's mind was as Möröödögch explained that his name meant dreamer. A part of him could resonate with the idea of being a dreamer, but the practical side of him knew there was a lot more to changing things than just ironclad willpower. The man had the mind for combat that was for sure, but the self centered emphasis of the Khan title that the man had now spoken aloud five to six times, probably even more than that within his own mind. If the dreamers in this world were clamoring for this man's style of leadership then the Gotei Thirteen had truly fallen. The next few words of compliment had Kaeru narrowing his eyes slightly as there was always a 'but' when people started to praise an opponent after several statements of self reassuring validation. To the point of maybe in another life, that seemed short sighted for the frog because he looked big picture beyond this one fight whether he lived or died the souls of this world needed to move forward past this lingering haze of uncertainty. Every single word, prod, taunt, and statement from the frog was a dagger more deadly than any technique he currently knew. A soft smirk even escaped his lips as the man made it a point to say the shinigami was not the biggest threat here, trying to confirm with himself that he was in the right and also attempting to prove the frog was inferior because of size or difference in ideals. The moment at which Kaeru was really waiting for had finally come as Möröödögch spoke out about the neglect costing many souls their lives, dreams disappearing, starvation to all in Rukongai were the biggest threats was particularly the politicians within Soul Society. This was interesting to hear as Soul Society was the realm, Rukongai the districts, and Seireitei the holy area where most of the nobles and Gotei Thirteen resided. Perhaps this was a simple mistake, or maybe the man did not know the difference or even cared to know the difference. This Khan had the potential to be so much more than he was, yet he was out here spinning his wheels killing everyone that opposed him. Maybe everyone this Möröödögch came in contact with deserved to die, no more stories only an end to all things. Only acquiring the weak to follow him as they would worship his every word and never challenge his title or reign out of fear. In the past Kaeru was much better at this information gathering and surviving, but this was not his day. He had ran into a buzz saw that only saw souls as expendable if they had status, wealth, or differing views. His presence alone was changing all of Soul Society whether he or the shinigami were fully acknowledging it. And if the frog died here today, what would come next would not be pleasant for Rukongai as a war no doubt would be coming to the outer lands. Then again, he could just be thinking too highly of his own worth just as this alleged Khan was of himself. That is when a light touch on the shoulder made Kaeru snap out of his own thoughts as he realized he was no longer alone. The taps came across in a code stating "Speak nothing of what you are about to witness." The speed of this was swift and would of been impossible for most others to understand, but he had some practice with this form of communication over his time as the Captain Commander before his disappearance. This was a Onmitsukido representative and one that was extremely good at hiding his presence. Every muscle tensed as Kaeru could see in slow motion that Möröödögch was going to attempt to his zhanmadao in a downward fashion aimed at his left shoulder probably in an angular motion. The next few moments were a blur of kido and power strikes countering one another as the form Hitsuyona Shizukesa the leader of the Detention unit had arrived stepping in to change the ending of the battle temporarily. He was not really in any condition to fight with any sort of extension, but looked like the ten foot warrior was ready to go several more rounds. Getting yanked several hundred feet from the battlefield reappearing by a tall oak tree Kaeru reached out for support mostly to gather his barrings as the Onmitsukido spoke. He had at least a few questions like why the Tekkei Kage was replaced by this new Zanpaktou and more importantly whyhe was sporting a vaizard mask. Simply nodding in acknowledgement that his plan of attack was ill suited for this situation and his lack of patience to get back up to his normal strength had gotten him into a real bind. He could not reply fast enough to tell his ally any information about the Khan's skills or power, nor could he even reply to any of the statements spoken in his direction. All the frog could do was take this opportunity to try and survive. So with all that he had learned today about the outer districts, this Möröödögch and his powers, and what were some things that needed to be worked on within the Gotei Thirteen. Peering off into the distance for a moment at the worthy opponent that had bested him this day Kaeru acknowledged that he was the much weaker soul this day in comparison to Möröödögch. Pride was a funny thing, a lot of his family and siblings had much more of it than the frog. But in moments like this he found himself in the thralls of his own hubris. A chance to learn from this warrior of the dreamers, one would say a Khan to his own ideals was someone worth his respect. Seeing Hitsuyona reappear to confront Möröödögch once again Kaeru knew this was his moment to try and get out of this situation. He was not planning on leaving here today, but sometimes fate had other plans. There was a part of him that hoped this Khan was not foolish enough to fight Hitsuyona in a weakened state, because there was so much more for that man to learn. Just like the frog himself needed to learn a whole lot more about this new version of the world he was living in. Learning to roll with the punches, learn from your mistakes, study the situations around you, and gain experience to better for the future. That was all he could do now, suck up this loss and move forward. Wincing in pain he started to move back towards Seireitei as fast as he could.

    The Warrior Khan Of Rukongai

    There was something to the base urges which Möröödögch spoke about just before his skin seemed to release a red steam. There were times in his life when Kaeru had misread a situation or opportunity, those times were not very often. His instincts were to study and survive, but in this moment there was a lot of other things running through his head. The fact that he had attained bankai again recently, but was still not in full control of that power. His shikai techniques still needed a lot of work on apply his crests to his opponents, but these were a hard transition in his depowered state. And then there was just the fact he did not match up to the sheer strength or heat this man was able to use. Watching closely as Möröödögch ran right through Kaeru's Okasen with his weapons extended out to either side the glass sand mix whirled within the wind around thickening for a moment making the man difficult for him to see. Armor of sand and glass, sandstorm area effect, and heat empowered strikes. Even in the haze of the sand the frog could see the man lumbering towards him easily enough, but his timing was a little slower than usually as an slash produced a wave of sand and glass exploding in a cyclone like manner centered on the frog. The heat from the sand as it had encased him in this whirlwind was tough seemingly making his able to escape more difficult and seeing his opponent tougher as well. "You care so much for that title," Kaeru spoke aloud as he tried to position himself a few more feet away, but the winds continue to stay with him so he was going to try something different. He was going to see if this man was truly only a beast or if there was more to this man than just a battle crazed maniac. If not then, this was realistically becoming his last few moments alive after having just returned from the abyss. Something that could of been avoided had he taken the proper amount of time to train himself back up to at least an acceptable level of shinigami again, but that was not how he operated. He saw an issue, he tackled it head on even if he was in the disadvantage. The next attack from Möröödögch was a telegraphed devastating upward swing with the sabre, which Kaeru purposely shifted his zanpakutos to take the attack cutting up his body with a scorching hot pain. Staggering backwards after taking the fourth hit there was definitely a second wider horizontal swing with the zhanmadao which was clearly going to cleave him in half if he did not prepare for the force. Aiming both of his zanpakutos at the hilt of the zhanmadao in an X he braced for the attack. The burst of wind of sand, glass, and heat was enough to make things difficult. But. This fight was over for him. Just looking down Kaeru's two zanpakutos had reverted to sealed state once again, this fight was over and he was not the victor. That was fine with him, had he had more time to analyze or prepare for the fight things could of went differently. Or maybe they would of went the same. Coughing up some blood he drew back his zanpakutos making a quick motion to put them back in their sheathes. His bones were aching and his chest was sliced open, blood trickling out over burned skin as he drops to a knee. He had taken this mans deadly blows and proven he was no push over. He could of used some other tricks, but he wanted this to be a straight up fight. Would of been fun to fight him at full strength, he thought to himself as he pushed to stand back up on two feet. There are those in Seireitei that have known about him for years, Kaeru wheezed as he thought to himself as he took a defensive Hakuda stance, His rise to power, his claiming of the title Khan, and in their weakness left him alone in my absence. I have been gone for four years. In that time the Gotei Thirteen has become a shell of what it once was, what this man knew it as now. In his time as Captain Commander, though brief, they the elite shinigami around him had pride in their work. Now the lack of truly driven souls is nauseating. Except for the few that tried to keep some semblance of order. They need more like this man in their ranks again. The type that can inspire those around them to change their ways are meant to rise to a higher calling. He was pushing through this, not willing to go down without saying his piece having not thrown a real attack the whole fight at this man. "There could of been any number of other shinigami that could of came in the last four years," Kaeru spoke with a dry calm to his voice as this is what a leader did confront reality and push through, "But none of them came to your land, your home to fight on your turf." Taking one step forward he gathered what was left in his slash burned body with all sorts of glass shard cuts all over. "I was not lying when I said I was the biggest threat here, Möröödögch," he spoke with conviction and full belief in his words as he swayed for a moment, "So why do you think I came instead of them?" He remained defiantly upright for the time being, weathered and fatigued he would hold this hakuda defensive stance. He maybe had enough strength for one or two counter punches but his body could give out any moment. [WC: 977] Abilities: 0/4 attacks made. Stats

    Meeting with the Central 46

    Standing behind the current acting Captain Commander Mikoto Shuu as the Central Forty-Six debated the current topic Xarius Kaerius stood there listening. The topic was exactly how the current Captain Commander was going to slow transition the frog back into his former role or until someone else was deemed ready for the role. These sort of meetings always dragged on, because a lot of the members in this room were of noble birth much like himself. This meant that they had a sense of self importance and power about things they honestly knew little on. The difference between them and him was he had spent years going out into Rukongai trying to make a change, mostly when he was moving up the ranks of the Eighth Division. "To summarize what we expect of you moving forward is to work up through the First Division until the Captains present can confirm you are once again prepared for those duties," the judge spoke up cutting through all of the extra noise before he continued to explain how they were going to allow Kaeru to earn the title of Captain Commander once again, "You will begin at the rank of Vice-Captain to start doing Rukongai missions and Seireitei general administration duties. As Shuu determines you are ready for more responsibilities, at that point you will be eligible to take the Captain's Test once again. If you pass then you will be promoted to Captain of the First Division to prove you can still run and understand the duties of a captain you might one day be in charge of again. After enough time and duties have been completed, then you will have the chance to become Captain Commander like any of the other candidates we will be looking at during that time." Kaeru continued to listen to these words and absorb the magnitude of just how far he had fallen, yet at the same time how much of an opportunity this was. Falling down to the rank of Vice-Captain was not a huge deal as this was still a highly ranked position and would more than likely be pushing out the paper pusher type that was already in there in no time. As a Vice-Captain he would have some freedom again to get out into Rukongai and see what has happened since he has been gone and potentially forge some new friendships along the way. "These terms are agreeable," Kaeru confirms speaking aloud for the room to hear him. When the time comes he would take the captains test and prove he not only a good captain still but also able to lead the Gotei Thirteen once again. He had spent his whole life behind his prodigy brother Wyatt and genius brother Ank being looked down on for being not as gifted or having brutish goals. Neither of them wanted the titles of Vice-Captain, Captain, or Captain Commander like him. Rather they preferred to just be in a squad for the status and accessibility available to shinigami. The humorous part of this was they were both in the First Division. "Then we officially welcome you back into the ranks of the Gotei Thirteen Vice-Captain Xarius Kaeru," the judge stated authoritatively, "You both may leave." With that the two of them were allowed to leave of Central Forty-Six chambers. "Good, then you have a lot of work to get doing Vice-Captain Kaeru," Shuu stated as he uncrossed his arms shifted his weight off of his back foot to pull out the vice-captain's badge tossing it over to Kaeru once they were fully outside of the chamber with the doors closed, "Try not to get a big head." Ever the joker between the two of them, their history ran far back as childhood friends and shinigami cadets. They were as close as brothers, realistically they were closer than any family bonds he had. Even after achieving the title of Captain Commander years back was not enough to earn him any sort of respect from his father Xarm or any of his four siblings. They felt like he was putting the Gotei Thirteen before the clan by taking the position. Catching the badge looking at the emblem of a chrysanthemums Kaeru paused for only a moment before replying dryly with, "Too late. I was born with one." Turning the badge in his hand he took the cloth part and wrapped it around his left arm officially becoming the Vice-Captain of the First Division. The insignia represented truth and innocence something that a lot of the squad members were recognized for. The second thing they were usually recognized for was being role models and leaders. At least that was what he recruited when he was the Captain of this Division in the past, but that was probably different now as each Captain had the right to change what their division was about. "Is there anything I need to know about the First Division's current standing?" the frog asked as they walked away from the chamber towards the first division's barracks. "Well the current captain is a man named Sif Barkuz. Not what you would call a combat captain, more of a administrative yes man that was friends with the right crowds," Shuu explained as he walked next to the newly ranked shinigami, "He does good work on the administration side of things and is not too bad to have a conversation with if you can get him away from his desk long enough to have one. He only took the Captain exam because he was talked into it. He barely has a shikai release, to give you some insight. So if you wanted to just take it from him in combat like the eleventh division usually does he would probably just give it up." Taking in these words and reading between the lines Kaeru was able to put together that Shuu believed this man was capable of some things for the Gotei Thirteen, just not the traditional "militaristic" side of the squads. If this man was at the title of Captain then Sif Barkuz was probably minimum of a top seated position within a Gotei Thirteen Division. This was actually something that excited him, getting to see his replacement at the captain position. He would have plenty of time to assess that situation and just how much work was going on in the Division until he could take the captain's test and attempt to get at least that title back.

  10. Xarius Kaeru

    The Warrior Khan Of Rukongai

    Of course the man chasing him onto the battlefield would think of himself as salvation. This did not surprise Kaeru in the slightest as each chuckle and statement from the man was so self reassuring that it was nauseating. There were a lot of souls like this in Soul Society, some of them in Rukongai, some of them in Seireitei. Coming from a noble house he was used to this sort of self affirmation, status, titles, did not matter as people always wanted to be better than the next one. As Kaeru had stated by the fire he knew where Möröödögch lived, because the Onmitsukido had given him that information. That information included how many people lived here, as he had walked through the districts he talked to all of his own subordinates to learn about each change that has occurred since this "Khan" had arrived. The thing is that this man apparently has been around for some time, just recently he had started to make his move into the Rukongai Districts. This was unacceptable, but he realized that there was a lot of work that needed to be done to weed out the corruption of laziness since he has been gone. Though, that could be a job left for someone else if he was not careful. Möröödögch was moving pretty quickly already gaining the benefits of the shikai released Kaeru could tell this was going to be very one sided if he was not careful. This fight was not about him winning, he was not a child. Going full tilt was not how he fought, he needed to keep this fight from reaching the Rukongai outer districts. Even if the Gotei Thirteen was a shell of the force he left behind when he was gone, there was still a nucleus of shinigami that did try to maintain order and make things better. Not that what they did was ever enough, people would always complain about the things untouched because being part of the solution was too much work. No matter how much the man continued to glare at him and speak about himself, Kaeru kept his eyes focused on the task at hand; to learn. Möröödögch was an intense individual, seems that the shinigami's statements had struck a cord in the way he wanted them to. This was just part of who he was, calling things as he saw them and until this man proved things otherwise he would still the biggest threat here. Dead or alive, he held more value to the state of things. His disappearance over the last four years should of proved that very point, but how would Möröödögch know that? He would not that was the issue. Both of his hands rested on the hands of each of his sheathed zanpakutos as Kaeru watched the sand slowl drop off from the zanpakuto in Möröödögch's left. This sand spread out as the self titled Khan began to leisurely move in his direction. At the same time that man started to become covered in this constantly moving sand all over his entire body. Within he noticed that there was a gleaming substance reflecting light to some extent. Almost like diamonds or glass, which made more sense as there was sand coming from the zanpakuto. As soon as Möröödögch start to move faster in his direction Kaeru immediate moved at the same pace keeping the exact same distance. While the Khan was currently seemed capable of moving faster than him which meant that Möröödögch would eventually catch him in the current cat and mouse game. The issue is that if the man was going to go all out on the frog with every attack and move at his fastest he would burn himself out way faster than the shinigami would. Each step was easily readable, he could anticipate the movements as even with the sand covered body he had to make deliberate movement. That is when the other zanpakuto in Möröödögch's right hand started to illuminate with an intense red. Kaeru immediate noticed the correlation with the land around him radiating with heat over the whole battlefield. Now that must be his other zanpakuto activating. Sand with glass makes more sense now that I know his other zanpakuto can create heat. That put him at a further disadvantage in this fight which his amphibian anatomy. This was how some battles went, the perfect opponent with all your weaknesses can show up out of nowhere. he was going to have to adapt to the change. Watching as Möröödögch started to run closer to frog even more he started to gather up some of the reiryoku around his body shifting from his sweat glands very lightly. This man was pulling his body back to attempt a slash attack from a distance, this movement with his arm was slow enough to tell the angle in which he was aiming for; right at the frog. But this was no simple slash as he was pushed the air into a massive shockwave. The sheer brute force wave of wind was making a vertical motion splitting the ground. Winds whirling and exploding forth pushing him backwards with relative ease as the amount of power in that attack was impressive.The aftermath of rumble all over the place was something to behold, such destruction for lands that he called home. The strength required to create a shockwave like that was immense, Kaeru had only saw that with captain level shinigami. Something that was a growing trend with a brutish types out here in Rukongai. The ground was cracking at the weight of the strike. He could tell the difference between this man and someone that was used to that kind of power was he was not in the shape to do too many all out attacks without a sacrifice in another department. Maybe he was wrong and he had finally found the ultimate warrior with no weaknesses. He needed to switch his strategy as this man was going to exhaust himself with attacks such as that. The next slash attack at a difference he was going to redirect that attack. he would just have to start his motion just before. Gathering up his nerves without showing any signs of stress on his face Kaeru's eyes noticed that the man was starting to move his other zanpakuto in another shockwave motion like he figured he would. Just like the vertical wave this was horizontal version of the exact same normal strike. This was a high speed wave like the last one that he had struggled to get up after, but he was prepared taking a mental note that he was going to have to test this man's reaction speed to his own attack being turned back on him later if needed. His goal here was to get it as close as possible without hitting the man. Maybe the man would move into it or maybe he would block it out right. "Over the north side of the hill, Yin. Under the south side of the hill, Yang," he lowly spoke out as his hands prepared to draw both of his zanpakutos. As the attack was about to hit the frog, Kaeru lowered himself as he rotated drawing both of his zanpakutos releasing them at the same time to create two small reiryoku waves that only reduced the blast wave of wind enough where he could jump move to the left. That was an all out attack with some heat flavored onto the attack, but now he had saw two abilities and that this man could do shockwave attacks. Gripping his hands tightly around the handles of each zanpakutos he gritted his teeth as he stood back up. There was a pure black katana from blade to handle in his right hand that he was spinning to be up right that he had drew from his hip. The other zanpakuto from his shoulder had become a pure white katana from blade to handle. Years training in the Kaeru Clan basement as he was not a prodigy or genius like his siblings, extra studying to get through the Shino Academy to prove he could be a good shinigami, working his way up through the ranks of the Eighth Division until the moment he had earned the right to become Captain Commander. Years. All of this took years, not as many as others but this man seemed to just be a walking force of nature. Releasing a shikai by force of will is one thing, Kaeru thought to himself as he jumped backwards keeping a defensive stance, But to be able to use the abilities within an hour is ridiculous. Not just one zanpakuto, but two spirits with two different abilities. The frog himself saw Möröödögch grab the asauchi and it turn into two zanpakutos in a release shikai form. Even prodigies spend at least months getting used to their initial release before the techniques come. He had spent years to learn his zanpakutos originally. The hours he spent with each one, learning their names, personalities, likes, dislikes, and all of that time in their inner world. This man new how to perfectly use the abilities in tandem, sand and heat making glass with an armor. Probably better than people that have had their shikais for centuries even. Nothing was ever fair in life, Kaeru was not going to be one to complain about that now. With his shikai released now he was going to have to be really careful to not use abilities or techniques. His reiatsu would just have to be enough as he was still not back to his former power levels. He was close to regaining his bankai and all of the power that came with that. He remembered all of the time he spent with both of his zanpakutos, but while they could manifest in this realm, they were not giving up their power just yet. Still digging himself out of the dog house with Yin, which was probably going to take a bit more time. Are you going to use us for real Xarius? the concerned voice of Yang came through the ether. He smirked at his zanpakutos image became only where he could see her hovering next to his right. Yeah right, he would rather die than allow someone like this to see either of his family's heirlooms real potential, Yin spoke with an irritation in her voice, He is just going to play keep away now. She was right, she had seen him fight enough times to know his fights were slow drawn out fights with his opponents. He was probably not going to last too long with those high speed shockwaves being launched at him. "Hado number thirty-two. Okasen," Kaeru stated as he began to raise his zanpakutō horizontally in front of himself coming to a stop for a moment. With the blade out in front a yellow orb began to generate, which widens along the length of his sword. Only a moment would pass until it was fully charged firing a wide, horizontal arc of yellow energy at Möröödögch at half power. This was the Yellow Fire Flash, a kido art that his younger brother Ank had worked with him to learn. His younger brother while a real noble snob most of the time, was also a genius when it came to reiryoku based techniques. [WC: 1886] [Total WC: 4552] Notes: Abilities used: 3/4 attacks made Stats

    The Warrior Khan Of Rukongai

    The truth within the words that came from Möröödögch that everything in this world is dangerous drew more interest than the attempted goading from man. He was not the biggest nor was he the smallest soul to walk through the lands of Rukongai. Size was nothing if the source did not know how to wield that power correctly. For there was a balance to everything, including this Khan. Maybe this frog was that counter balance, maybe he was not. As the Möröödögch made comments about the shinigami keeping his back to someone he just met, showing him things since Kaeru knew so much and introducing himself proper. The frog's appearance seemed to only bring out more laughter and name calling. This was a normal reaction, reminded him a lot of the Eleventh Divison's Kenpachis over the years. Those that understood combat and used that as a way of life. He also had dealt with some of this during his time in the Shino Academy, until people realized his family was a noble house. Always under estimating him or assuming things because of his appearance. The repeating of his statement interested Kaeru as this was now becoming a trend, as if Möröödögch was confirming what was being said before he could outright reply to his statements. Not something uncommon, but more interesting that this brutish man in appearance as he had surmised was a lot more put together. The words drew out loud laughter as the ten foot man walked out of the tent while motioning with his head for the shinigami to follow. While not immediate Kaeru did follow Möröödögch out of the tent, but was dragging his feet almost as he had now paced out the size of the encampment, how many soldiers he had, and what he would have to do to eliminate the real threat which was not the ten foot man as he had now time to listen to his thoughts and views on the Gotei Thirteen as a whole. While maybe not a fool, this man lived his life far away from Seireitei pushing around the souls that could not best him or his ideals. The frog had literally seen hundreds of souls just like Möröödögch, would he be different than any of them or just like them? The state of the districts were less than ideal Kaeru was willing to at least acknowledge that much. In the last few weeks since returning he has been getting briefed on all kinds of issues with Soul Society as a whole, he only had so much time to handle each issue. That is why he was relying so heavily on the other captains to start to pick up their own slack now that he was starting to handle the Captain Commander responsibilities. This however was not one of those responsibilities. This actually fell into the Sixth Division's territory, but their captain was one of the ones that was handed a position because of status not by earning the spot. Watching as Möröödögch walked past the campfire clearly waiting for Kaeru to follow him as he continued to monologue about the shinigami determining themselves as guardians worthy of hero worship, believing in policing that which they could not fully understand, and even wondered aloud that they were the bigger threat than the behemonth. Which he agreed with Möröödögch, shinigami as a whole were a much bigger threat than any unchecked self proclaimed Khan. Yet here Kaeru stood now across the campfire as Möröödögch challenged him in a threatening tone, going so far as to take the drink of the nearest ally, drink it down himself, and throw the empty mug to the ground. Childish, he thought to himself keeping his distance from the continually released shikai form, while his views are less than agreeable, his insight into some of the general things going on are on point. Do you know why the Gotei Thirteen polices what they cannot possibly conceive? Kaeru mused to himself as his steps took his body straight towards the campfire, gray cloak flapping with the gust of wind from his reiatsu reaching the peak nonreleased potential. That was rhetorical, because this man just spouted off all of his views on the Gotei Thirteen he answered his own question continuing his walk to the fire holding his hand out, looking deep into the flames and not at the man. Like with all things there is a balance. Not all Shinigami are pompous self important idiots running around because the powers that be anointed them as such. Just like not all Rukongai and farther out were savage dog idiot criminals. There was always a balance to things. A short pause followed as Kaeru squatted down holding his left hand out to the flame, "To answer your question, I am the biggest threat here right now," he stated dryly with no emotion in his words as he held the hand and squatted positioning, his eyes were moving around taking in all of the area around him, the men at the campfire were basically kissing the ground struggling underneath both of their spiritual pressure. "I know where you live. I know how many people you have in this area. I have walked through all twenty districts that claim you Khan giving my shinigami allies issues. I have studied the quality of life from those areas compared to that of an average Rukongai District. And I, know how to use that information, that knowledge, to understand you are not the real threat out here beyond the Rukongai Districts." Kaeru's eyes were now piercing through the tall flames at Möröödögch. The intensity in the air was suffocating for all the others. For whether he lived or died in this moment, did not matter. Just like whether Möröödögch kill him or not, also did not matter. Their deaths here would be meaningless, but sometimes the only way to prove one's worth in life was take a leap of faith. For if he died here today to a random man in the districts, then that was fate. Though, he would be dealing with a much bigger force of the Gotei Thirteen in the wake of his recently returning to the organization. Then again, their loyalties to some of their own members could be view as fickle when the Central Forty-Six had a say beyond their normal controls. Something he was working to take back. "I am willing accept your offer Möröödögch," he replied as he stood back up dusting himself off, "For I am interested in what a Khan is capable of myself." With that the frog flashed stepped away from the campfire, the burst of wind putting it out. His movement would take him into the field nearby away from this man's small village, a small courtesy he could provide. [WC: 1139] [Total WC: 2666] Notes:
