stepping downstairs into the massive Kaeru Clan training grounds under the noble house's grounds Xarius was exhausted as he sat down on a nearby boulder near a small pond. This was a pocket space where an entire landscape was carved out in what appeared on the outside to be a standard house. This was something the head of the house Xarm Kaeru, his father, had commissioned the Twelfth Division into doing for them. This was where his siblings went to train and where he was going to get a break from the nonstop headaches of his family. 

Only a little bit of time had passed since his memories had returned to him, but Xarius was already overwhelmed with everything that had transpired. This moment, away from the family and the Gotei Thirteen duties he had taken on as the acting Captain Commander had started to take their toll as their had been a lot of neglect. He was not going to fix this issue in a day, a week, a month, this was going to take some years. He knew he had to assess all of the issues, weed out the problems, fix what he could, build a solid foundation, and help grow the Gotei Thirteen back into the force that it once was.

"You seem trouble Xarius," the elderly voice of Yang broke through the literal silence snapping him out of his thoughts. Glancing over he saw the materialized form of the brown skinned old man with white hair down in a meditating pose on the ground right next to the boulder the frog was sitting on. "Of course he is trouble, he just remembered who he was and now is," the soothing feminine voice of Yin could be heard as though she was whispering into his ear. Her voice pulled his eyes to his right as she gentle dragged her finger tips across his right shoulder as she jumped down also in a fully materialized form.

This was the moment that Kaeru realized that his Bankai was once again a tool at his disposal. This release was the second form of both Zanpakutos.  The process of achieving this level of power normally takes about ten years or more, not to mention the experience needed to master both of them. When he went to visit them last in the inner world where two separate islands surrounded by a massive body of water.  The sun moon in the sky lit up opposite yin-yang island sides. The trials to remember his shikai were not overly tough, but they were necessary without his memories. Now that he had his memories, he had to work at rebuilding the connection he had with both of his zanpakuto spirits.

"Over the north side of the hill, Yin. Under the south side of the hill, Yang," Kaeru stated as he drew and released the pure black and white forms of his zanpakutos. If both of them were out and feeling up to being materialized, he was going to do some training. The wave of reiatsu from this release shook the immediate area around him. This was just the power of his shikai release. "No rest for the wicked I see," Yin cooed as she gestured to summon forth a wave of black reiatsu to toss in his direction. He quickly blocked this wave of reiatsu by countering with his white zanpakuto covered in white reiatsu.

"No need to hold back young one," Yang stated as he stood up cracking his back in a few different spots, "We are here to help you get back to feeling normal once again." Yin summoned forth two more all black katanas landed down next to Yang who now was holding two all white katanas. These blades all looked like the ones he was holding in his shikai form. Lifting both of her arms up and dropping the blades from her hands Yin spoke out the command, "Kurai hi no odori." Also known as the dance of the darkened day, a technique that allowed the zanpakutos to fly, attack, or defend at her command. 

Jumping around to clash blades with both of his zanpakuto spirits Kaeru was testing the limits of his shikai potential at this time. He was not one to jump straight to his trump card, nor did he like others knowing enough about his skills to be able to stop everything he could do. The point of this was to train and the only way he was going to get there faster was to truly push himself. "When shady side of mountain meets the sunny side of mountain, Yinyang Taijitu" he speaks aloud as he jumps back landing on some solid ground holding the white katana under the black katana with Yin to his right and Yang to his left, "Bankai."

A second wave of reiatsu erupted from where the acting captain commander stood pushes dust clouds around as a massive yinyang diagram appears beneath Kaeru and both of his opponents. To each side of him there were three black and three white katanas similar to his shikai yin and yang blades stabbed into the  ground near him. A scale mailed clad frog shinigami in black samurai armor with white lining details stood in between the two zanpakuto spirits. Rotating his head from one side to the other he quickly gestured with both of his hands as he activated the dance of the darkened day technique from his side of the battlefield at both of them to get them to eventually be on the opposite side of the field than he was on.

Now that his bankai was release Kaeru's reiatsu was pouring out in droves as this was the first time he had fully cut loose since coming back. Remembering now that those that enter the yinyang battlefield had to deal with the effects of his abilities. When he move to the yin side his attacks used negative reiatsu and when he was on the yang side they deal positive reiatsu. The catch was that no one could be both on the same side at the same time. Meaning if one crossed over the borderline of the diagram the field would shift. This switch flipped the fields to be on the other side. 

"Kurai taiyō" Yin shouted as she launched forward as a black reiatsu covered the zanpakuto she was holding onto. This negative reiatsu crackled like lightning as she stabbed into his shoulder. This was Yin's dark sun technique used to put her opponent on the defensive, a deadly maneuver if too many strikes were given. As she pulled back the voice of Yang could be heard from just above of him, "Akarui tsuki." The bright moon technique of Yang covered the zanpakuto in a white flame like positive reiatsu. The attack comes down with a with a mighty drop which the frog barely dodges. 

Shifting his weight Kaeru stands firmly for a moment drawing in air to calm his mind and prepare himself for the last technique he was going to work on today, "Saishū nisshoku." Or Final Eclipse was a technique that took all six blades and the armor over his body merging them all together into one massive nodachi. The interlacing of white and black crossing over one another handle connect to the black leviathan with an open mouth hilt gave way to an extended pure white blade. Holding this massive blade with two hands he lowers his center of gravity jumping at them both with a wide arching slashing motion releasing a wave of white reiatsu, "Kawa no sei no kitagishi" 

Over the next couple of hours Kaeru continues to push himself through every limit. There was a chance he was going to have to use these abilities in his future, when that time came he had to be zoned in and prepared to use his techniques properly or risk doing unwarranted damage to others or himself. Finally he was starting to feel like himself again, but he knew he could not keep this up forever. Plus there was the fact that a reiatsu release of this magnitude would draw a lot of unwanted attention as well. In fact, as he continued to spare with his two zanpakuto spirits within the yin-yang field he wondered why no one had come down from up above. 

Whatever the reasons were for the rest of Kaeru's family for giving him space, he was fine with as long as he had access to his family training grounds. There was a lot of pent up frustration he needed to work off, this was the perfect place as any to get that work done. For when he left this area he would be the acting captain commander once again, a title with no power and no real say until he proved his mettle once again. Being that they had Mikoto Shuu as acting Captain Commander for two years without finding a new candidate he did not imagine the Central Forty-Six would be any faster with him back in the fold.

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.

Stepping through House Kaeru's main hall grounds Xarius Kaeru was making his way to the training grounds entrance. Like most of the Gotei Thirteen he has the personnel standard wear of the Shinigami uniform, called Garment of Dead Souls which is a white under clothing, a black kimono with no sleeves, a black hakama, a white waist strap, white foot pouch, and  sandals made from straw rope. Over top of that he now wears a white haori over the usual black Shinigami clothes, with the First Division insignia of a chrysanthemums on the back inside the Gotei Thirteen rhombus symbol. 

Just before the steps to the training grounds there were two frog humanoid male shinigami guards with dark green skin and golden eyes. Next to them was a smaller more youthful looking lime green frog humanoid male with a tanto zanpakuto strapped to his back with an orange hilt. This youthful looking from was Ank Kaeru, Xarius' youngest sibling and the genius of the family. He was most known for his quick acceleration through the Academy and known in the Kido Arts. "I was beginning to wonder if your promotion was going to call you away from our training session," Ank jests as he turns to head down the steps after his older brother walks down the steps before him.

"Getting the rank of Captain again comes with a set of duties," Xarius replies as the winding steps eventually open up into the expansive swamp setting, "But when I give my word, I do my best to kept that word." Taking the First Division Captain spot back from Sif Barkuz after the Captain Proficiency test came with a lot of changes that got him one step back towards his goal of Captain Commander. "I would like to continue our training on Hado number ninety: Kurohitsugi," he stated as he jumps up flash stepping in the air hovering over one of the six large ponds in the area.

This was Xarius' favorite captain level kido art that he used before disappearing, at least he had a lot of memories using this kido art in battle against his foes. Kurohitsugi or Black Coffin is a high-level Kido which seals its target in a black spiritual coffin of reiryoku. The practitioner creates purple and black spiritual energy which, enveloping their intended target with a powerful wave of gravity, takes the form of a box of black energy covered with all over in spike-like protrusions. The spikes piercing into the box lacerate the target inside from head to toe. 

"Right right brother. I recall the last nine times you told me," Ank playfully replied as he hopped up into the air as well across the pond from his older brother, "The incantation just for your memory is..'Seeping crest of turbidity. Arrogant vessel of lunacy! Boil forth and deny! Grow numb and flicker! Disrupt sleep! Crawling queen of iron! Eternally self-destructing doll of mud! Unite! Repulse! Fill with soil and know your own powerlessness!' followed by 'Hado number ninety: Kurohitsugi' of course. Though a less powerful version can be summoned without the full incantation phrase once you have mastered the art once again."

As the smaller shinigami explained the incantation to the Black Coffin to him once again Xarius could feel his lips mimicking the words along with his brother. This was almost like a nervous tick or maybe it was just his eyes becoming more focused in on his power returning to form once again. The longer he trained the quicker his power seemed to be returning to his person. Maybe that lost fight with Möröödögch had shook something else within him loose. Only time would tell if he was going to be able to change things from within or be cause for more destruction. 

"Alright, first thing is first you need to focus on a target," Ank started to explain the higher level kido art slowly as if he was a child, "Imagine within your own mind that target being encased within a large rectangular or square sized structure. One might say a coffin. From this solid structure of spiritual energy extend out deadly spears, which as you finish the incantation will enter into the box piercing your targets body all over. Hopefully killing them." The last part with a bit of a shrug to his shoulders before he starts to release of some of his reiatsu.

As Ank starts to mutter the incantantion Xarius notices a gathering of black reiryoku with a purple hue around the nearest tree, "Seeping crest of turbidity. Arrogant vessel of lunacy! Boil forth and deny! Grow numb and flicker! Disrupt sleep! Crawling queen of iron! Eternally self-destructing doll of mud! Unite! Repulse! Fill with soil and know your own powerlessness! Hado number ninety: Kurohitsugi" As the last few words of definitive authority ring out the black coffin finishes with an almost wave of wild energy before the spears from the outside stab inward before dissolving a few moments afterwards. 

The fading of the ninetieth kido art gives way to a now decimated sight of a punctured willow tree. "That tree has seen better days," Ank states as he throws his arms up over his head in a carefree nature, "Not a kido art I use all that often as it takes a lot out of me, but nevertheless a powerful ace in the hole after a wearing down my opponent. Actually only learned it because you disappeared, reminded me of you every time I cast it during a fight." The honest words of his younger sibling caught him off guard for a moment, but Xarius was prepared to reply, "I hope you have not had a need to use this too often. I'm surprised you have not joined the Kido Corps." 

"You and everyone else," Ank replied messed with the sleeve of his kimono for a moment, "But father became overly critical of the Gotei Thirteen after your disappearance. House Kaeru recalled all of the shinigami back to become guards of the estate or noble figures again. After graduating the Academy I was brought in to be a teacher to all of the young of House Kaeru to 'give them a leg up' before the academy." The tone was a mixture of boredom and annoyance that oozed out of every word from Ank was easily picked up on by the older sibling.

Turning his attention for a moment with the high level Kido art in his mind vividly Xarius focused on what remained of the tree. As he listened to each word by Anky he would focus on sealing the ruined willow tree within a black spiritual coffin. "Seeping crest of turbidity," he started the incantation often created for points of purple light in a square above the willow tree, along with four more points of purple light at the base of the tree, "Arrogant vessel of lunacy!"

As each word of the incantation came out of Xarius' low bass toned voice he kept imagining the different steps to each part of this kido art. "Boil forth and deny!" he continued forward now  as lines traced down and from the tops to the bottom flickering purple starlight, "Grow numb and flicker!" As those points connected with one another the other points are at the top join together, likewise with the bottom as well. This forms a see through cubic rectangle around the tree.

"Disrupt sleep! filled in each wall of this rectangle," Xarius' words are deliberate and precise as the black walls of reiryoku form blocking out the vision of the tree from all those in the area, "Crawling queen of iron!" Next he concentrated on manipulating the sides of the wall to pull out and form into long spikes almost in the shape of spears. "Eternally self-destructing doll of mud!" he commanded as he drew in a deep breath holding the solid structure of ominous potential death for the briefest of moments, "Unite! Repulse! Fill with soil and know your own powerlessness!"

With his right hand out stretched in the direction of the black coffin entrapped willow tree Xarius finishes the incantation by saying, "Hado number ninety: Kurohitsugi" With that he closes his open right palm into a fist almost in a crushing motion. In unison with that movement the spear-like extensions on the walls all stab in at once holding for a moment. Then as the time passes the walls of the black coffin start to fade giving way to the cracking and falling remains of the willow tree. "Dannnggg, brother you still got some power left in the old bones I see," Ank backhandedly comments after a short whistle, "Almost like you have done this kido before or something."

"Something like that," Xarius dryly responded glancing over at the younger frog and seeing a glimmer of his younger self for only but a moment, "Hado number ninety: Kurohitsugi!" The words come out in a blur as he raises his left hand in the direction of Ank to mess with him some. His real aim was a different willow tree located right behind his younger brother on the far bank of the pond they were standing over. The shinigami captain once again generates a purple laced black spiritual energy which quickly envelopes the untouched willow tree in the form of a box of black energy that is covered in several spear-like protrusions. 

"Wait, what are you doing!?" The momentary fear in Ank's eyes as he questioned why as Xarius' closes his left hand with authority. The spears pierce into the black coffin lacerating the willow tree inside from top to roots. As the sounds of wood snapping draw the attention of Ank to look over his shoulder to see the dissipating black and purple spiritual energy revealing another dismantled willow tree. "Holy crap," Anky let out a sight of relief as Xarius appeared next to him in a flash of a step.

"If you are not in the Kido Corps and your talents are being wasted around here, then join the First Division," Xarius stated as his hand rested on Ank's shoulder for a moment, "I will speak with father. You will still have to train the House Kaeru youth as you are required to do so now, but as a future leader within the family you are a perfect candidate for the Gotei Thirteen's First Division. Plus, having you around will give me an excuse to learn more of the kido arts again." 

The excitement could be felt as Ank looked over towards Xarius towering stature compared to him. "You would talk to Father for me?" Ank asked sheepishly as he noticed his older brother was unwavering in his posture and was not looking down to him as they talked. "I will speak with father," the captain repeated himself once again, "I need all of the support I can to get the Gotei Thirteen back to where it once was, that takes people I can trust and count on. You are one of those people not blinded by loyalty to a noble house or a government function."

Finding his next target in a massive boulder Xarius shakily holds up his right hand once again in that direction as he pulls his left hand off from Ank's shoulder. "Seeping crest of turbidity. Arrogant vessel of lunacy! Boil forth and deny! Grow numb and flicker! Disrupt sleep! Crawling queen of iron! Eternally self-destructing doll of mud! Unite! Repulse! Fill with soil and know your own powerlessness!" This time the four sparks of purple light have to be wider than before but not as tall on the top as he generates more purple and black spiritual energy. These points of light form lines that connect into another cubic square this time than a rectangle enveloping the boulder in the form of a box of black energy covered in spear-like protrusions all over the outside. 

Waiting for a moment Xarius holds the kido art almost like he pushing himself to pour more of his power into this one than he had into the previous two attempts. "Hado number ninety: Kurohitsugi" he let out closing his right hand into a balled up fist as he watched the spears pierce into the box. Breathing heavily through a few deep gasps of air the black coffin disappears once again revealing the boulder, but now with several puncture wounds carved into the surface that clearly go very deep into the core. A second later and the boulder crumbles into a heap of several small pieces of rock.

"Whoa, whoa, whoa," Ank says waving his hands a bit frantically, "Three uses and you are not falling over dead? Just how strong are you? I thought they said you were weakened from your former state?" The concern in his younger brother's voice brought a slow exhausted smirk cross Xarius' face as he replied, "Some of my old tricks are returning and my training the last month or so has really begun to pay off. While I can tell I am still not back up to full strength yet, I do know I have developed a much stronger connection to my spiritual energy than before."

This was something that Xarius had a little trouble admitting to himself, but one that he noticed since the fight with Möröödögch. He just did not have the raw power that he had before, but the spiritual energy was there and he could mold that much easier before in connection with his shunko skill and kido arts. Not to mention the deep connection he had with Yin and Yang how definitely had him believing that he was more connected to the overall sense of his spiritual power. That balance that he was seeking before was coming closer and closer, but he just was not there yet. Maybe if he recalled more kido arts and trained even harder he would get back to his former power levels even faster.

Finally catching his breath a few minutes later Xarius lowered him down near the remains of the first willow tree they wrecked practicing Hado number ninety: Kurohitsugi. Flaring up his haori with the movement of spinning around he plopped himself down onto the ground. He had used up quite a bit of his power doing this training, but this felt good. He was spending time with his younger sibling once again, relearning his favorite kido art, becoming more deadly, and possibly recruiting another ally in his attempt to reshape the Gotei Thirteen into a force to be reckoned with.

"Well brother," Ank lets out of a chuckle as he lowers down with his feet landing on the edge of the pond, "I would be honored to join you in the First Division. If I am being honest, returning to the Gotei Thirteen would be nice, I have been interacting with much younger souls. Who knows maybe I will learn a thing or two from you? Though it is unlikely as you are an outdated model." The joke hit him right where it counted, but instead of getting offended or getting angry that he was talking to a captain now Xarius just let out an uncharacteristically booming laugh.

Over the next couple of hours they spend talking to one another Xarius gets the down low on family rulings and decisions over the past four years of being gone by Ank. The movement to pull all of the Kaeru family members out of squads was met with a lot of resistance of the Central Forty-Six. An unknown agreement was struck to allow this. There was a ritual of the dead done in the family burial grounds, which was more of a living memory than an actual graveyard, in memory of Xarius. Daj, Rin, and Wyatt took to working with Xarm after the loss of their mother and Xarius. 

This was all something that Xarius understood was inevitable for a Noble House losing one of their predominate figures in the course of a battle. As the Captain Commander he probably gave Xarm a false sense of security that the others would be looked after and protected, but once he was gone pulling them back under his control was a must. Control was a funny thing within his own mind as he struggle with wanting to get a grip on the situation to stir it in a direction that would benefit others, yet at the same time he was aware enough of himself that his ideals might not be what was best for the overall of Soul Society. He had to focus on what he could change, that started with the Gotei Thirteen now that he was a captain again.

Touching down on the outside steps to his family property Xarius Kaeru had arrived a bite before a planned meeting with his vice-captain Oriru Ryūka Kushō. A little bit of time had passed since they had taken their ranks at the top of the First Division and the Gotei Thirteen, but a promise had been made to work with his subordinate on his bankai. The prospect of having another strong shinigami captain potential within their ranks was very promising. Some of the others saw the potential in the shinigami, but were afraid of his full potential. That was not something he was afraid of, this only excited him more.

Before that meeting though Xarius was going to take some time to train with his younger brother Ank in the family's underground training facility. They had the option to also train at in the First Division's training grounds or the Central Underground Prison, but he felt this was a good excuse for them to stop by and see their family. Ank was directly behind him catching up at that moment also landing as some of the guards approached to see who had arrived. "Don't waste your energy it's just us," the smaller Kaeru joked as he stepped forward waving down the to approaching guards, "A third will be coming in later this morning, Lieutenant Kushō. Make sure to not give him any trouble and direct him to the family training grounds when he arrives." The two dark green skinned frog humanoids nodded their heads as the Captain Commander and his Seventh Seated Officer walked on the path leading up to the family hall where the training grounds were under.

"Good Morning you two," the low almost annoyed tone of their father Xarm Kaeru drew their attention as they made it to the open area past the first waves of house. "Lord Kaeru," a formal greeting from Xarius to his father as he acknowledged the massive frog's pressence. "Hey old man! Did you get fatter!?" Ank burst out as he appeared almost out of nowhere next to his father poking his belly. "Captain Commander...What did you say!?" Xarm shouts at the youngest one with a knee jerk raise of his hand only to miss through a blur of where Ank formerly was. The youngest Kaeru reappeared a few feet away from the entrance to the main hall casually strolling in as he yells back, "Old, Fat, and now slow? Geez!" 

A long drawn out breath from Xarm turned into a sigh as he turned to face the other son, "I see he is already reaping the benefits of you being back. Just like Soul Society has been all kinds of a buzz with all of your new rulings and decisions being made. Things have not been this lively in years." This was typical of his father Xarius knew that he was fishing for any kind of information he could get that his normal contacts were not providing him, thinking that having a Captain Commander as a son would provide him an in to knowing what is going on in Soul Society as a whole. "He has really taken to the role of Kido Arts trainer for the First Division," Xarius states looking to the now vacant open doorways to the main hall as if to say they were waiting for him, "I am sure everyone has all kinds of opinions and theories of me just like they did before I left." 

There was not much he could share with Xarm, but Xarius knew just talking to him in general was better than how things were before he had disappeared. "Thank you for allowing my squad to use the family training grounds today," the younger frog spoke looking stoically over to his father, "As agreed the payment for the time, use, and any potential damages will be paid from my direct account. I have no idea what fully to expect with the one coming later, so I needed a more secluded area to train in." The last part was a courtesy to the Kaeru family head as to why this request was made in the first place.

"No worries. I know you're good for the money," Xarm waved the appreciation off as he turned to head towards his house, "It is always nice to see you boys around here and your mother would of liked this version of us a lot more." The old frog almost never talked about their mother anymore, so this would of caught any of the others off guard, but Xarius was used to hearing things that could be viewed as surprising or odd. "Allow Ank to come by every once and a while and maybe we can work out a deal for a more regular use of the training grounds," Xarm offered up as he casually walked away giving a halfhearted wave with his right hand. "Definitely something we can discuss," the shinigami captain replied turning himself to move quickly into the main hall closing the doors behind him.

Walking past the two frog guards on duty Xarius nodded to them before walking into the room where the steps to the underground oasis could be reached. Reaching the bottom of the steps he exited the doorway into a vast swampy landscape where he could see several trees and the usual five ponds. Near one of the trees in the center he could see Ank was already doing some light stretching and preparing himself for todays training with Hadō Number Seventy-Eight: Zangerin. "Oh, look who finally decided to show up," Ank joked as he finally noticed his brother had joined him in the training grounds. 

In a single step Xarius appeared behind Ank placing his left hand on his younger brother's right shoulder as he replied, "Some of us understand the importance of a proper greeting and conversation." "AHHHH," Ank squeaks out as he jumped away from the larger frog shinigami as he started to shout at his superior, "Man! Why do you keep doing that crap! You act like you're one of the Onmitsukido or something!?" This had clearly flustered the younger of the two siblings so much that a small drop a sweat was moving down his cheek. "I have trained with a few of their best. So maybe I picked a thing or two up," the captain commander replied as he rolled out his arms and flexed his muscles as he started to prepare for the day's training.

"Whatever you say," Ank defiantly tried to play it off like he was not annoyed, but was failing pretty hard. The mood changed slightly as the seated officer starts to gather reiryoku focused around his zanpakuto. "Hadō Number Seventy-Eight: Zangerin!" he exclaims as he makes a circling slashing motion causing an outward blast of powerful spiritual energy to explode. As the water erupts from the waves expanding outward Xarius finds himself dodging backwards with a flash step landing above the next pond over to the left creating some distance. "Seems even that was not enough to catch you off guard either," Ank says as he puts his wakizashi style zanpakuto back away into his sheath, "The Cutting Flower Ring is a powerful wave to strike an enemy or enemies down in a pinch. While I may not be the best at zanjutsu, I have at least enough skill to utilize this in combat when I am surrounded."

This was a newer Kido Art to him as Xarius did not remember or have any memories of using this in his past life in combat. Whether he had or not was irrelevant in this moment as he wanted to keep getting stronger and being able to use this helped further his goal of becoming a more complete shinigami worthy of being an example to all of his subordinates and allies. The frog started to mimic his younger brother by grasping the hilt of his Yang zanpakuto with his left hand so that he could start gathering a large amount of spiritual energy.  Yang was stacked on top of his Yin zanpakuto he was already grabbing with his right hand. Pulling the toward in different directions he prepared to do two attempts of this kido art. "Hadō Number Seventy-Eight: Zangerin," he states calmly as he draws forth yang from his sheath in a circling motion creating a large white energy ring that hung about chest level before blasting outward with enough power to cause the pond below to act like a geyser creating a rain effect as the water rained back down.

Before Ank could say anything Xariu was already starting to draw on his Yin zanpakuto to do a follow up attempt of the kido art. "Hadō Number Seventy-Eight: Zangerin," he states this time creating a black horizontal ring around his body that copies his previous attempt, but he chooses to make a backwards spinning motion this time as the blast outward of spiritual energy his disrupts the falling water creating an outward push of terrifying force clearing out the haze in the area. "Well, you seem much more adept at learning the kido arts than I remember? It's no fun if you are going to be better at this than me too," Ank says with some exasperation to his tone, "On the bright side I was not hanging out in that pond."

"More likely that I was able to study your technique and apply the form quickly because it did start with a zanjutsu base," Xarius pointed out as he returned both of his zanpakutos to their sheaths, "Anything that uses my zanpakutos as a base gives me a leg up as they are what I spend most of my time training." The truth was he was starting to get back to his old ways of being able to study the minute details of his opponents or allies as they did mundane and definitive actions. His eyes had felt off for some time, but as his body was getting back into the correct condition so were his eyes. This was going to only help him as he continued on this path of self improvement and advancement. This would continue with what he had planned for his Vice-Captain whenever he would arrive. Until then the two Kaeru brothers would continue to take turns practicing various techniques and attaches in a lighthearted sparring match.

Oriru realized that he was a little behind schedule as he departed from his mother’s house in the 17th South Rukongai District. He spent some time helping his mother move closer to the Court of Pure Souls although he offered continuously to get her a place within the walls. No matter how much he insisted, she was settled with living within the Rukongai but a compromise was for her to at least be closer within the districts. Despite his new role in leadership, she still looked at her son like the child that he was and would reem him for attempting to use that voice of authority on her.

Through all the challenges that they face together, there was enough love for each other to get over the meaningless disputes that they had. Still, he had to leave his mother once more in order to make it to his meeting with the Captain. Captain Commander Kaeru agreed to help Oriru train and harness his power, which was something that he was truly hoping that would lead to a better sense of control. He had once tapped into the power of his Bankai, but he was not even sure that he had a full grasp on his Shikai. Hence the need for the training.

Oriru, sadly, was not one that could move at speeds that most of his subordinates could and that lead to more than enough complications for him. He had to plan his meetings to arrive early in order to avoid the fact that he could not get around as fast as everyone else. Although he left a but later than he had planned, he was able to make good time by getting a lift from one of his friends who was heading along the path leading towards the family property of the Kaeru Clan.

He made his way up the slight path with his Odachi held in his left hand, grip lightly on the sheath, with a stern look on his face. Although he spent much of his time with people of a higher status, included the few noble families, this would be the first time that he would personally be on the property of an individual’s home with such prestige. Though he would be stopped in thought as well as his steps as two humanoid frogs forced Oriru to halt.

Though they would take note of the badge that was stitched to the coat pocket of Oriru and acknowledge his rank. With a quick glance to one another, the one to the left of Oriru motioned for him to follow as he made his way towards a specific portion of the property. The Lieutenant took a moment to look at the design of the property and mixed emotions started to hit him. It was a beautiful place to be, but it reminded Oriru of his time spent in the slums of the Rukongai. He had to break into the Academy in order to study and gain access because he could not afford the funding to attend, and even then, could barely afford to leave the outer districts.

That was behind him, at least that was what he told himself as he made his way through the pathway and was directed to follow a set of stairs. With a respectful nod, he watched as the guard disappeared from the area and left Oriru with a strong sense of curiosity as he made his way down the steps. As he made it to the bottom of the steps, he was immediately caught off guard by the vast swampy landscape that stood before him. It was truly impressive to see something like a new world in front of him.

His gaze shifted quickly from the landscape to a specific pair that he noticed, Captain Commander Kaeru and the Seventh Seat Ank Kaeru, who were both apparently practicing with one another. Oriru did not want to be rude and interrupt, but he thought it would be best to announce himself so that they would be aware that he had arrived. So he continued forward to close the distance a bit before speaking, “Commander.” He spoke plainly, “Seventh Seat Ank.” He politely added, “I am sorry for the delay but I am ready.

Slow and steady was the name of Xarius' game as he sparred with his younger brother Ank. The seated officer was practically a master with the kido arts, but his other fields of hoho, hakuda, and zanjutsu were all lacking dramatically. Before his disappearance Ank had been part of the Kido Corps, but once the Captain Commander disappeared all of the Kaeru family members were pulled from the Gotei Thirteen ranks. Now that he was back though, he had made it a point to reintegrate as many of the Kaeru family as he could into the squads. That started with those in the acadamy and Ank within his squad to start with and from there the head of the house Xarm would make allowances depending on how things turnout. Basically this meant Xarm wanted to keep as much control over his family as he could.

Simple flash step drills had pushed Ank to a point of not wanting to do much, but Xarius immediately switched that into zanjutsu training as he wanted the fatigue to show off his glaring weaknesses more for teachable moments. "Your footing is out of place," the captain stated to his subordinate as he easily parried a thrusting attack swing followed by a upward slashing motion that he turned out of the way of with ease, "Without a strong foundation the rest will crumble, this applies to all things. Just like the foundation of a kido, remember your base and work from there." 

"Yeah, easy for you to say!" Ank shouted as he spun into a lunging strike with his zanpakuto only to end with his blade posing in the air as he hit nothing, "I did not have to go to all that many classes on this stuff. Why didn't you just let me go back into the Kido Corps? They didn't require me to do any of this crap." The younger frog was clearly frustrated at the continual lessons being thrown at him, but in Kaeru's mind this was for the best as his brother's talents would be wasted on the Kido Corps. While he did know his brother was quite capable of going back into the Kido Corps with ease, there was just too much he needed from a support standpoint. Plus the Kido Corps were a bit more autonomous of a group at the moment since he had returned so he was not exactly sure how much of their support he could rely on yet.

As the two frogs took proper kendo stances with their zanpakutos Xarius noticed a figure walking through the doorway. Trying to take advantage of the momentary distraction Ank flash stepped forward to make a downward slashing motion only to find himself spinning around end over end until he crashed into the pond below. In that brief moment the captain had returned his zanpakuto Yang back to his sheath and waited for the moment Ank was making the slashing motion in order to place a hand on his left wrist while kicking out his lead foot creating the flipping motion.

"Lieutenant Kushō, I trust everything is going fine with your mother's move," Xarius returned the greeting as he landed on the ground closest to his Vice-Captain just beyond the edge of the pond that Ank was walking out of with a dejected aura about him, "No worries, We were just getting some training in ourselves to warm up." "Yeah, warming up that's what you call it," Ank sarcastically retorted as he walked up next to Oriru, "Good Luck with all of that Lieutenant." The soaked younger frog continued on past his vice-captain. "Please seal off above until we are done, I would prefer no interrupts while I train with Oriru," Xarius requested of his younger sibling. "Yeah yeah, no interruptions. I got it Captain," Ank replied waving as he makes his way up to the entrance to cast a barrier kido over the entrance way so that no one can interrupt their training.

"Welcome to my family's training grounds," Xarius offered a formal greeting of the location, "This was built several generations of Kaeru ago with the assistance of some very technically skilled shinigami. This pocket of space acts like a five miles of various terrains. Mostly swamp lands to start with some desert and plains farther out." This is where he did most of his training when he was on his own or with family. "There are built in reiatsu suppressors so that any release power we have down here will not be felt in the areas above, unless the walls are damaged in some form. So, stay away from the walls at all possible," the captain added with a gesture behind him towards the lining sky above the doorway. Which was easier said than done as they looked like the rest of the scenery. 

"Do you you need a warm up? Or do you want to jump right in?" Xarius inquired to his subordinate as he waited for the man to dictate how ready he was to get into an intense training session. The official file on Oriru Ryūka Kushō details that he has an unclassified odachi style Zanpakuto known as Ginga with the release command “Collapse”. There are two entries of record that Oriru has used his shikai; Once to graduate from the academy and in the Eleventh Division Training. During those two events the file cites that he can create a large stone boulder with high levels of durability and that despite his low strength, Oriru is capable of throwing this boulder at incredible speeds. There were a lot of unanswered questions about this shinigami that the captain commander had, but he was more than patient enough to wait for the right time to answer those questions.

Yes, she has settled in nicely and thanks you for allowing me time to help her out.” It was a small gesture but the fact that the Captain Commander took a hint of an interest into the personal life of Oriru and his mother meant more than he could explain. He kept a calm expression on his face with the gentle undertone of comfort and friendliness, something that most people do not get to see enough of with his stern expression when he is engaged in work.

As Ank walked by, literally drenched in defeat, he wished a bit of luck towards his Lieutenant with the Captain before departing completely from the area. Once they were clearly alone, Xarius began to detail the environment which was interesting to Oriru. The fact that an expansive pocket space of five miles existed beneath his own home, one capable of housing multiple terrains and containing Reiatsu to prevent any bleeding of the Spiritual Pressure upon the outside world was impressive. Not so much that it was unheard of but growing up Oriru had a space under his house too, but that space was mostly where the rats would wait to eat the scraps that fell from his table during his dinner time.

Perhaps, to really push the process to the limits, it would be best if we dive right into the training with the most intensity you can provide?” Although it was a question, it was clear in his expression and in his demeaner that it was more of a statement that he expected his Captain to provide him the respect of providing. “I can tell you that Ginga has been upset with me because I have not allowed her to experience battle, to truly manifest her power although I have spent plenty of time with her.” Oriru would pull his Zanpakuto in front of him, horizontally, and stare at it for a moment before releasing his grip observing as Ginga hovered before him.

Her request is that I push myself until my limits or my body breaks, but I needed someone capable of pushing me enough to appease her while at the same time I need someone who can handle what happens…” With a sigh, “When she takes over…

As those words slid from his lips. Oriru attempted to push, with all his might, every bit of his power to the limits as the ceiling of his potential could be felt. “Captain, where shall we begin?”

The story of Oriru Ryūka Kushō was a greatly unknown one to him and his fellow squad members, but there was some reassurance for Xarius Kaeru in this unknown. He himself had a shroud of unknown even though he was born within a noble family. While he liked to think they had a lot in come, reality was probably the opposite. Yet he could not be certain until he took the time to get to know his subordinate, even with the little things like being aware of family and their proximity. Acknowledging the thanks for the time he prepared himself mentally as it was literally the least he could do as Oriru had only just recently accepted his Vice-Captain role and financial raise. 

The question was more of a clear statement that Oriru was expecting Kaeru to push the training to his upper limits. Some would probably take offense to this or call to question asking someone of Captain Level to just go all out on intensity. Not this frog, he actually respected the drive to get better when others cautioned him from using his power. How was Oriru supposed to master that which was a part of him if he never used it? a thought that crossed the captains mind as his vice-captain continued to talk about Ginga the odachi zanpakuto which was now hovering in front of Oriru horizontally.

"I can relate as one of my zanpakutos can be very moody as well," Kaeru replied as he started to allow his reiatsu to climb to match up to the vice-captain's current power levels as he had made it a habit to sit around the average seated officer normal state when not in battle, "Made learning and gaining her trust extremely difficult." He had not seen what Oriru's reiatsu levels were like yet, but if they were less than that of a captain he would struggle to start under his reiatsu pressure.

"That's omnious," Kaeru replies to the remark about Ginga taking over eyeing the shinigami across from him, "I think I am up to the challenge. As your captain I aim to not disappoint. With the great unknown about your abilities, at least from where I am standing I will trust that your words and demeanor speak true." His mind was prepared, but the great unknown as he was still not back up to his full potential made him wonder if his body was truly ready for a slug-fest with whatever Oriru had cooking. The usually stoic captain's expression did not change as he felt Oriru's reiatsu stopping at a certain point. Debating how he wanted to open this fight as he had several different options,  but he was unsure of how much he wanted to put into each blow. 

As Kaeru cut through the scenarios in his mind as Lieutenant Oriru asked if he was ready to begin. "Indeed, Let us begin today's training session," the captain commander unleashed most of his reiatsu all the way to his unreleased zanpakutos he could provide. This was to set the battlefield proper between the two shinigami as the request of his subordinate was to ask him to provide the most intensity. "Hadō Number Thirty-One: Shakkahō," he states as he raises his right hand quickly to fire a ball of red energy at Oriru's left shoulder at about three quarters of his power, choosing to not say the full incantation. To not give the lower seated officer a real sense of battle he would use flash step while drawing his Yang zanpakuto into his left hand to get to Oriru's right side aiming to land a standard horizontal slash to Oriru's right rib cage.

Oriru was able to take some comfort in the fact that Xarius would be able to understand the troubles dealing with a temperamental Zanpakuto. That would prove just as vital in this training as a mutual relatability could highlight the necessity to appease the mood of a stubborn partner. Luckily, Xarius also decided to respect the wishes of Oriru and allow himself to push the limits and as he pushed it became apparent that Xarius was allowing his own Spiritual Pressure to match the level that Oriru was expressing. That was a fair move so not to overwhelm Oriru so much that he would be unable to act, to begin with.

Shortly after, Xarius would push his power to a greater level as he initiated the training. The moment his first word slipped from his mouth, Ginga started to spin in mid-air aggressively. The red ball of energy was launched in the air towards Oriru, and his understanding of Xarius Kaeru’s combat tactics he is known to pair his long-range Kido attacks with a close-range melee attack. It was less of a distraction and more of an attack on two fronts to throw the opponent off.

Even with his understanding of his Captain’s tactics, it does not change the fact that he was unable to see them as they came his way. Luckily, he would not have to see the Hado as his Zanpakuto created Enkosen without a single command from him to protect him from the attack. Granted, even with all of his might put into the barrier, it cracked under the pressure and some of the force and heat struck him. His focus was so settled on that attack, and the Captain had moved so fast, that Oriru had not even realized that the Captain was on his right side and sliced through his rib cage. It was not a deep wound, but it was certainly a painful experience nonetheless as his Reiatsu spiked for a moment.

There were only a few seconds to react and Oriru took the chance and used the advantage that no one knew of his ability. From the point on his ribs where he was slashed, yellow energy would radiate until a full forced Okasen, with a wide arc of about a meter, would be launched at close range. There was not an incantation spoken and the noticeable detail was that Oriru never once looked away from directly in front of him. There was little else that he could do but his coat appeared to be pulled from his body and thrown towards Xarius to force him to increase the distance between the two of them.

There had to be several fighting reports of how Kaeru fought in the past which to a trained mind such as Oriru's could plan for, but in the heat of combat raw power and speed sometimes overcome a prepared person. His Shakkaho was mostly blocked by the Enkosen without a single command from his vice-captain. That was something he would have to make a mental note on as he had seem people remove the main incantation to kido arts but never removing all the words completely. At three quarters of his power there was some damage that bleed over as he would arrive to hit the precise cut to Oriru's ribs which caused his Reiatsu spiked for a moment. And not by a little either, this was more than a standard release of power like something there. 

Time seemed to slow down for Kaeru as he noticed that from the point he had slashed Oriru's ribs a yellow energy started to gather spiritual energy like a kido art until a wide arc of about a meter launched at close range. Again without an incantation spoken and this time he picked up on Oriru had not changed his straight forward gaze. At the same time his vice-captain's coat appeared to be pulling away from his body being thrown towards the captain in a clear attempt to create some space. This was a fight to draw out Oriru's potential and connect with Ginga, not a true fight in how he would normally fight an opponent. Grabbing the handle of his still sheathed Yin zanpakuto he quickly drew her straight upward releasing in order to unleash a single defensive blast of negative spiritual energy to black the incoming Okasen, "Over the north side of the hill, Yin. Under the south side of the hill, Yang."

The captain Commander having to use his speed to pop out of the way of the thrown cloak by going straight up. In his right hand the Yin zanpakuto has becomes pure black katana from blade to handle while the Yang zanpakuto became a pure white katana from blade to handle. In that brief moment being close to Oriru there was something Kaeru noticed that seemed odd. Well, a few different things actually as he gathered his thoughts in this momentary jump upward. There was definitely a spike in his lieutenant's reiatsu before falling back down after Yang cut into his ribs. Also, while nearby there was a field about a meter around that a seemed to be a blend of reiatsu as if it were between Ginga and Oriru. While he originally thought Ginga was released, now the frog was thinking it was still sealed as there was something else that was allowing Oriru to manipulate his zanpakuto with ease or tossing the coats without any body movements. Add in the fact that this lower seated shinigami had just used two different kido arts in Enkosen and Okasen without a single word spoken.

"Very interesting fighting style Lieutenant," Kaeru complimented his subordinate as he started to draw out his other zanpakuto Yin into his right hand, "Even though I can feel our spiritual pressure is distinctly different levels you seem unphased by my presence even after I released my Shikai. This usually only happens when someone is restraining their own limits. So, that confirms for me a few things." In a normal fight he would of switched immediately to Haduka techniques in shunko form in order to keep close ranged and pummeling his opponent for not wanting to be within close quarters, but he wanted to focus on the zanpakutos today. At least for now.

"You will be the first living soul other than the captains at my Captain's Proficiency Test to see some of my zanpakuto's capabilities," Kaeru stated plainly as he lifted his left arm up then throwing the pure white katana downwards at Oriru with the intent of it to slash the man across the right shoulder, "Kagayakuyoru no odori." The words also meant "dance of the shining night", this technique while active all granted him complete control over his zanpakutos when they were not in his hands. As soon as that strike does or does not land he would direct it to rotate at full speed for a slash to the back, followed up to the right leg, and the left leg. He needed to see if the reaction time was a one time use or a more static ability. If he could just land two of these attacks his zanpakutos natural ability would come immediately into the battle, yet if all four hit things could get ugly in a hurry.

Everything was so fast, and honestly Oriru could not keep up with the Captain’s movement. The only reason he was able to attempt to deflect the first attack was because of the position of his Zanpakuto, and the response of his attack was only after he had realized that he was cut by the Captain’s Zanpakuto seconds later. His response times were lacking, and it was causing serious issues for him. Oriru had spent countless hours studying and training with various officers and it seems compared to a Captain class Soul Reaper none of that could amount to a similar level.

Suddenly a force of energy would blast forth from the Captain as Xarius spoke the command dedicate to his Zanpakuto release. The spiritual energy from that release alone was enough to dismantle his own Hado and cause a blowback striking Oriru on his right side forcing him to stumble a few steps to his left. Suddenly Oriru realized that Xarius was elevated above him roughly 5 meters in the air, and he only recognized this after the fact with his coat falling upon the ground without contacting Xarius.

There was a moment of appreciation as Oriru gazed upon the actual form of his Captain’s Shikai, something that he had only read reports about with the minimum amount of details provided. Of course, Oriru felt the respect of the Captain deciding not to hold back – at least not entirely – to help the Lieutenant expand his ability and connection with Ginga. That, paired with the fact that the Captain took the time to highlight the fighting style of Oriru, was something that brought a bit of pride for his own ability but realized that he could not perform as he desired without the support of Ginga.

It was curious, the fact that the Captain took note of the relative spiritual pressure differences between the two because Oriru was not aware of the difference. Although Oriru could sense the level of most individuals with ease, there was something… familiar about the level that the Captain Commander was operating at. With a shift in the moment, Xarius revealed the fact that Oriru would be laying witness to the capabilities of his Captain’s Zanpakuto which was something that only the other Captain’s have been able to see.

The next moments happened so fast that Oriru did not even recognize what happened until after his blood fell to the ground. His right shoulder was the first sensation of pain that he was able to experience, followed by the sharp pain in his back before he staggered from the wounds inflicted upon the back of both of his legs. The pain was quick, but the lingering effects were slowly increasing. It did not even occur to him how fast the Captain was, but then it became clear that this dark essence surrounding him was the negative spiritual pressure that he was struck by when Xarius released his Zanpakuto.

~ Internal ~
His body felt… heavier, both physically and spiritually, and he could feel the pressure impact him greater as the blood fell from his wounds. The second drop fell from his back and dripped upon the ground with the sound of the bit of blood echoed in his ears and everything froze for a moment, and there in front of him was a figure in a black shadowy cloak with specks of white scattered upon the garment.

Well.” It spoke with a soft feminine voice, almost a whisper, that echoed beautifully in his ears. “That pain… It is authentic and beautiful.” She slowly approached; inches covered in what felt like minutes as Oriru remained fixed in his place. “The nature of battle, the contest of forces beyond comprehension much like the universe. Moving forward, unphased by the details of what lives or dies, continuously progressing…” What felt like an hour had passed before the cloaked figure finally stood face to face with Oriru.

~ Reality ~
In a burst of raw force Oriru’s spiritual pressure began to escalate slowly, elevating to levels never seen from Oriru before. So much so that his spiritual pressure became tangible as a glowing white aura started to consume his body. This was the power that Oriru held deep within him, and the unique detail of this white spiritual energy was that it was truly the raw energy from Oriru, contrasting that field around his body that was a blend of his and Ginga.

Ginga slowly began to pull herself from her sheath, a radiant white light shimmering from the steel as the blade became free. Oriru never actually pulled Ginga from her sheath since he was not efficient with her in Zanjutsu and she was too selfish to allow her power to be released in the few times he allows his eyes to glance upon the steel blade. The white steel, once released from the cage of the sheath, was planted into the ground firmly of its own design.

~ Internal ~
The cloaked figure stood face to face with Oriru, but he could see nothing but glowing golden orbs from under the shadow of the good, a visage of death itself if ever there needed a description. “You have provided me an interest in this moment, so in return I shall give you more than a taste of my power.” Oriru kept his eyes fixed on hers, a momentary pause for them both. “Reach beyond the heavens, descend further than hell, discover what life delivers, and relish in the fact that death denies your existence.

The figure brought her arms towards her hood, hands clad in raw darkness, and pulled away the hood to reveal nothing. The cloak opened and rushed Oriru and consuming him in absolute darkness. Every part of him sharply turning numb. The pain of the wounds of his shoulder, back, and legs became nothing but a memory. Suddenly specks of light shimmered in the darkness like stars in the night sky, “From a single moment, where nothing was, everything became. The void of space itself was but a piece of dust and now we are eternal, and we continue to…

~ Reality ~
Oriru reached out and gripped the handle of Ginga with his left hand as his white Reiatsu instantly was consumed in darkness turning it pitch black purging the negative spiritual pressure from his body. The temperature around Oriru became cold, the air slowly thinned out, and small debris, water and blood droplets began to defy gravity ever so slightly. “Expand… Ginga.

Suddenly the Tsuba shattered as ten small marbles floated around Oriru, each one a different color resembling a planet and a single golden one shining brightly. Nepture, Uranus, Saturn, and Jupiter all dramatically grew being comparable to the size of a basketball. “Ginga, she promised to give me a taste of her true power…” Oriru released his Zanpakuto and smiled as he turned to face Xarius, “But she wants me to push even further to earn her blessing. So, I will go all out, Captain, if you do not mind.

Oriru pointed his left hand at Xarius and instantly a massive burst of blue energy erupted from his hand that quickly shifted white in color before turning black matching this void like aura generated by the blended spiritual energy of Oriru and Ginga. Almost instantly after the Sokatsui was launched form his hand, Oriru’s location was surrounded by a Tozansho without an incantation or name once more. Much like his Sokatsui, the Tozansho formed the normal color before shifting white mid formation and finally becoming a black, but transparent, barrier approximately 3 meters in height and 3 meters across. From inside the barrier, it can be seen that Mars grew much like the previous four planets around Oriru.

As Kaeru watched each of his desired attacks hit Oriru with just ease and precision that this fight was quickly tipping in one direction even with him holding back some of his strength. The point of this was to drive the vice-captain into a corner so he had to release his potential to survive. There was a moment of doubt that the lower seated shinigami was even going to be able to make it to that point as his combat awareness was just not up to par in the current setting. That however did not deter the frog as he had promised his subordinate that he would push him at the level of a captain, so that was where he was going to continue to operate.

With the last of the four strikes connecting with Oriru by Kaeru's Yang zanpakuto blade the lower seat was now marked by a form of negative reiatsu. Though now he could sense the raw spiritual pressure beginning to rise slowly. This spiritual pressure of Oriru became a glowing white aura overtaking his whole body. There was a difference clearly now between the two reiatsu he had sensed earlier; the white spiritual energy was from Oriru, while the field around his body was a blend of his and Ginga. Was this his true power? the frog thought to himself as he rotated his left hand in a motion as to point to his left shoulder circling Yang in the air.

Preparing for his next attack Kaeru watched as Oriru's zanpakuto began to slowly draw from it's own sheath with a bright white light directly from the blade.  As the lower seated officer gripped the handle of his zanpakuto with his left hand the white Reiatsu immediately purged the negative reiatsu Yang had placed on his. Around Oriru the temperature became  much colder as the air thinned out as the debris in the air began to rise slowly as if gravity in the space was being effected. 

That is when the vice-captain spoke a release command to his zanpakuto causing the tsuba to shatter into ten small marbles floated around Oriru. Each of these marbles were a different color and a single brightly golden one shining in the middle. Four of these marbles grew in size. These all seemed to mirror the planets and sun of this star system. His lieutenant went on to explain that Ginga was giving him a portion of her power and that she wanted him to be pushed even farther. This made sense as Oriru was definitely at a much more even power level with him and looked to be operating with his zanpakuto released into shikai form. 

"By all means Lieutenant Kushō, cut loose," Kaeru started to reply with willingness as Oriru pointed with his left hand as a large blue energy exploded from the hand before turning into a white color then black. This Sokatsui was more than double the speed of the Okasen that had been launched previously. Though he could see the blast coming at him he knew he was not going to be able to get out of the way fully, so he shifted his body to the right as much as he could to avoid the brunt of the damage.

As the smoke cleared Kaeru could see that Oriru was now encased in a transparent black inverted pyramid with the red marble growing to match the other larger marbles. Hadō Number Thirty-Three: Sōkatsui followed up by a Bakudō Number Seventy-Three: Tozanshō both without incantations was beyond impressive. Maximized defense seemed to be the strategy here by the lower seated officer. "Creating distance by excellent use of both Bakudo and Hado in tandem without incantations definitely shows your skills in the kido arts," the captain commander complimented his lieutenant as he grabbed the right shoulder of his destroyed haori yanking the material off his body tossing it behind him.

Gathering up some of his own Reiryoku in the tip of his left pointer finger Kaeru fires a concentrated lightning bolt directly at the shielded Oriru, "Hadō # 4: Byakurai!" The 'Pale Lightning' technique was no match for a proper Tozansho, but he needed to test out the durability and abilities of what he was dealing with now. As long as Oriru was hielded by the Tozansho landing any of his more effective abilities was going to be a much more difficult task. 

Before the lightning fully finished releasing from his pointer finger Kaeru starts to pull his Yin zanpakuto in his right hand covered in a massive black lightning like reiatsu on an upward angled motion launching a negative reiatsu wave at Oriru. In unison from behind the Yang zanpakuto still under the affects of Kagayakuyoru no odori was covered in a white fire like reiatsu makes a horizontal wave attack aimed at Oriru's backside.

Oriru watched as his Sokatsui launched forth upon the Captain, a bit of surprise at his own power observing the potential that Ginga held from him. It quickly became clear that the amount of untapped energy sealed within her was kept from him until he was ready to truly utilize it. The sense of appreciation finally came upon him at this moment and the understanding of combat that he avoided for so long shifted sharply. There was a willingness in him to fight, to challenge the opposition that may come towards him and the determination to discover the full limits of Ginga reached a new level of its own. 

His focus was brought back to the training when the Captain took note of the tactic Oriru displayed, the use of the Sokatsui to force the Captain to increase the immediate distance between the two followed by the reactive creation of Tozansho to ensure the distance remains at a fixed minimum. "I spent countless hours studying." He responded with a smile preparing for the Captain's next action. The barrier was already formed, and Ginga's essence guided Oriru to understand that the need for defence was key in order to maintain the preservation and the attempt for an offence was just a matter of time. "Fortify." With those words, the black barrier formed from the unique nature of Oriru and Ginga's altered energy signature shifted to a more golden color. More than that, for those with a keen eye, it would appear that the barrier itself had a way to distort reality a few inches around it causing minor ripples in the air that seemed like matter was being consumed to enhance the barrier. 

This was done just moments after the Captain Commander unleashed his own assault of a Hado and a wave of energy from the Zanpakuto that he was wielding. The Byakurai struck firmly against the barrier but seemed to do little to the actually Bakudo which settled Oriru a little, because he held the concern his own barrier being incapable to stand against a low-level Hado, even it was from a Captain Class Soul Reaper. What Oriru was not prepared for was the third attack that had come from his rear side, but only able to recognize it the moment that it struck his barrier. The initial wave of energy that came in front of him, the black lightning generated by the Captain struck the barrier and it caused a distortion in the barrier which caused it to appear to glitch for a moment as a white flame consumed the weakened barrier almost eating away at it. 

Suddenly the barrier shattered, leaving Oriru standing there in the open air once more with yet another new orb grew much like the previous adding the Earth orb into the list. Although the fire consumed the barrier and disperse and the electrical energy cackled into nothingness, it appeared that the forces were enough to eat away at Oriru's energy. The lack of connection with Ginga prevented the barrier from protecting him from the force of the barrier itself breaking, something that wouldn't normally happen to a Soul Reaper utilizing Bakudo. "Well, that is inconvenient."

Oriru generated a small amount of golden light energy in his left hand before clenching his fist tightly and pointing two fingers at Xarius. As he performed this action, a single stream of golden light wrapped around his fingers and turned a bright white. Lieutenant General Kusho pointed his fingers at the Captain as the white light shifted black instantly before launching forward towards the Captain, the design and pattern of the black energy a clear indication of Bakudo number four, Hainawa. As the black energy launched forward, Oriru prepared a response for the Captain's actions to follow. Whether or not the attempt is successful with the low-level Bakudo, the black energy would change and grow in size before releasing five other strands of black light energy. The moment the Captain makes a move to avoid or decides to take the Bakudo directly, the Hainawa would transition into Bakudo number Sixty-One, Rikujōkōrō.

One of Oriru's proudest discoveries was the Evolution Kido Technique. Studying various Kido techniques taught him that many of the higher level Kido are extensions of the lower-level ones, and when used correctly one could shift a technique into another. The most prominent example in his studies was Bakudo Four to Sixty-One because the Energy Manipulation from both are duplicate light generation and as such allow for the transfer from one technique to another. Six planets continued to orbit Oriru at their full size whilst four more remained in marble size in a smaller orbit around him.

The response from Oriru did not surprise Kaeru in the slightest, but the smile did somewhat. The man seemed to always be in check with his emotions so the smile while brief seemed to be a sign he was indeed cutting loose some. Maybe this was because of the seclusion that the Kaeru Family training grounds provided or just that he was getting pushed by a Captain Level threat. Only time would answer this for the both of them he was sure of at least that much.

The next word echoed out from Oriru as the black barrier shifted to a gold like appearance. Looking closer to the barrier itself he could faintly see that the barrier now had an almost distortion around the outside shifting as if reality itself could not keep together. Taking only but a briefest of moments to notice this he was sure this was yet another enhancement to his vice-captain's kido art. Stacking a barrier over a barrier for defense was a way of saying he was dedicated to protecting himself from the Captain Commander's zanpakuto's abilities. 

The barrier shattered with the combination of Kaeru's Byakurai, Kawa no fu no nangan, and Kawa no sei no kitagishi leaving Oriru out in the open once again. The frog captain noticed another marble that floated around the lower seated shinigami grew like the previous ones had. The negative black lightning reiatsu and positive fire reiatsu dissipated without touching his subordinate. "I understand how you feel," he replied sarcastically as he trained his eyes on Oriru for whatever was next. I need to wear down Oriru's defenses, if that was even possible at this given moment, he thought to himself as he gripped Yin tightly in his right hand.

In the next moment Kaeru watched as a small amount of golden light energy formed in Oriru's left hand before wrapping around his fingers and turned a bright white. The white light then shifted to a jet black instantly launching forward. This was clearly an academy kido art that he knew well; bakudo number four, Hainawa. There was no way once again that he was going to be able to out right dodge this attack but he could time this to react in order to somewhat avoid being completely captured in the black energy. 

As Kaeru attempted to move out of the attack as much as he could the light grew in size releasing five other strands of black light energy making the Hainawa transition into Bakudo number Sixty-One, Rikujōkōrō. Being caught fully in both would not of boded well for the Captain Commander in this fight as dealing with these bakudos were wearing on him somewhat. The six larger balls orbited the vice-captain, but there were four more remained at the smaller size. These seem to react over time or when stressing to deal with my attacks. I need more information if I am going to land a solid strike with my Yin or Yang, he thought to himself as he shifted in place for a moment.

Taking in a deep breath Kaeru starts to flex in order to provide counter pressure to the Rikujōkōrō that had been placed on him moments ago. This was no easy task to do as he struggled at first before breaking through shattering the six rod prison in order to close the distance between him and Oriru by rushing at him. At the same time he activated and empowered his Yang sword preparing to unleash his Kagayaku kishi. Once he reached the half way point between them he would bring his left downward in an attempt to draw the man's attention. From above his Yang sword would be encased in positive white reiatsu flames making a powerful down swing attack at Oriru's right shoulder from the front.

The speed of the technique launched with a tremendous amount of velocity behind it, the force of his Kido started to become more and more impressive with each use. As the training continued, Ginga grew increasingly excited about having a chance to fight and the more that she gave for Lieutenant General Kusho the more that she would get in return. Each time that the Captain decided to push a little further, Oriru was backed further into a corner and that meant that he would have to fight even harder. Her words, her feelings, and her ideas continued to flow through the body of her partner as the unity between them strengthened. The planets

The switch of the technique was quick enough to catch the Captain and strong enough to restrain him temporarily and that proved to be enough time for Oriru, as well as Ginga, to make the decision for their next action. Oriru focused on the Captain as he found a way to break through the bakudo by true and pure force which caused the Lieutenant General a momentary cause of concern to know see someone who could just literally flex their way out of a kido. There was a reason that the Captain was who he was, the Commander of the entire Thirteen Court Guard Squads. Then, in a rush of speed the Captain went for an assault upon Oriru that caught the young Lieutenant General off guard. "Ido." He spoke the words as the Captain stopped a short distance away.

Unsure of what the Captain was doing as Nepture and Uranus broke the pattern of the orbit, the continuous flow much like the electrons dancing around the nucleus, and hovered in front of Oriru within the field of the Event Horizon. Oriru was only alerted by a moment as the free blade of the Captain Commander entered the one meter field of the Event Horizon. 'A misdirection...' There was little to no time to react and Oriru knew that he could not move fast enough to avoid the attack and even attempting a Kido would take too much time even without the fact he does not need to use the incantation. "Setsuzoku.

For the quickest moment, both Neptune and Uranus was consumed by a radiant golden glow before a stream of golden energy formed and tethered the two of them together. The thread formed between the two of them as the blade come down. The force was tremendous but the thread did not give and the planets did not move. Almost as a reaction, acting faster than even Oriru could anticipate like a second nature or muscle memory, a white rod formed in the air just above Oriru before suddenly turning black and duplicating one hundred times over. Just as they duplicated, "Fortify." as the words slid from his lips the one hundred black rods turned a radiant golden color before raining down Bakudo number 62, Hyapporankan upon Captain Kaeru at close range. Simultaneous to this, Lieutenant General generated five small balls of white light that shifted black. With a snap of his finger the orbs disappeared. 

Moments later five tall thick black pillars connected by chains would descend from the sky upon the position of the Captain providing a secondary sealing technique of Bakudo number 75, Gochūtekkan. As the assault of Bakudo was launched another planet, Venus, grew to match the size of the previous planets leaving three marbles still and seven orbs in orbit around the Lieutenant General. Through all that, the most alarming detail was the amount of energy being generated by Oriru as it appeared that his body was absorbing the actual environment as small specs of dirt, water, and debris would seem to dissolve within his field and create an aura around his body.

The word "Ido" could be heard from Oriru as Kearu had stopped a short distance away. Most of the vice-captains abilities did not require spoken activation if the kido arts were an indication of how the fight was going to be going, but this caused two of the larger marbles to break the pattern of the orbit around the lower ranked shinigami to hover in front within the field of awareness. That is when a second word could be heard in "Setsuzoku" resulting in the same two larger balls starting to glow with a golden radiance forming a string between the two of them. This thread blocked his incoming string with the hovering Yang. 

So they can move out of the circling motion and can interact with one another making seemingly unbreakable threads. The defenses he has are higher than previous reported, he thought to himself as he motioned for his flying Yang zanpakuto to head back towards him. At this moment a white rod formed in the air just above Oriru, but like the others the color would change to black before duplicating one hundred times for Bakudo number sixty-two, Hyapporankan. This was not good and he knew that dodging even partially was going to be next to impossible, especially at close range. At the same time he could faintly see five small balls of white light that turned to black as well that disappeared with a snap.

Glancing up Kaeru noticed the massive pillars of Bakudo number seventy-five, Gochūtekkan descending towards him. This was a reality of just not being fast enough or strong enough to deal with the kido onslaught. He needed to get closer and flip the advantage around if he was going to get through this part of the battle. He still had techniques and abilities he had not used, most because the point was not to kill Oriru but rather to push him. "Kawa no fu no nangan," he says coating his Yin zanpakuto in a black negative reiatsu before a flying Yang rips across the sky with a white positive reiatsu over it's blade, "Kawa no sei no kitagishi." These two zanpakutos work in tandem to each release waves of  power to meet the falling pillars but he takes the brunt of the Hyapporankan. 

This drives Kaeru downward planting him against a large boulder between two ponds. Glancing through the wreckage sealing technique another marble had grew to match the size of the previous ones leaving three marbles left. There was almost a counter going on here, but he was not exactly sure what that meant. Both of his zanpakutos were stabbed into the ground currently nearby. What was next in the grand scheme of Ginga? he wondered to himself as faint images of both of his zanpakuto spirits appeared near him where he could seem them only. 

You have noticed right? Yang asks in an inquisitive tone looking out at the situation. Of course he has. He stopped fighting Oriru a while ago, the fool has no battle awareness and would of died ten times over if not for his zanpakuto, Yin interjected to answer in an annoyed tone. They were focused on the abruptness of the battle and how there were two factors not working in tandem, more one doing all of the work and the others just being used as a place holder. To the frog captain he could see that there was still a discrepancy between the zanpakuto spirit and the wielder, not that Oriru needed to understand the upper reaches of his power he had already matched the captain commander in raw spiritual power. Neither of them had even released a bankai yet, which he was sure the vice-captain was capable of and would of already used this had other captains not told him to restrain himself.

Yeah, Kaeru replied to his zanpakutos as he started to try and power through the Hyapporankan as well. This was not going to be easy, but he did have a few tricks up his sleeve before he would have to use a trump card like bankai or his shunko abilities. The repetitive question now was how to get through these shields, barriers, and seals to get to Oriru and force him to actually have to connect on a deeper level.
