Zanpaku-tō: Shikai – Shīrudokurō (release command “Mamoru”)
Bankai – Ten no Shīrudokurō
Little is known about Hayao's Zanpaku-tō abilities. Due to his extensive training in hand-to-hand combat, he rarely is required to use his Zanpaku-tō. What is known is that it would appear that he is one of very few Shinigami to own two Zanpaku-tō. All that is known about the two Zanpaku-tō is that one appears to be for offensive purposes, and the other is for defense. Further information will be added when it is made available.
Powers and Abilities:
Master Swordsman: Trained from a young age by multiple Captains and former Captain rank Shinigami, Hayao has become proficient in the ways of the blade, even when never releasing his Zanpaku-tō. When faced against multiple opponents at his graduation ceremony, Hayao easily defeated them with his sealed Shīrudokurō.
• Hitotsume: Nadegiri: A precision cut of extreme force and speed which can slice through large, multi-story high opponents. The opponent is killed with one swift slash so precise, they are not even aware of until after it has taken place.
•Senmaioroshi: A technique where multiple blade movements take place so fast that they can literally shred a target into pieces.
Kidō Master: Having been trained by former Captain of the Kidō Corps Tessai Tsukabishi in the use of kidō, Hayao has spent many hours perfecting his Kidō over the years. Due to this immense amount of training put forth, Hayao has become well versed in all three styles of allowed Kidō (Bakudō, Hadō, and Kaidō).
•Hanki: A technique that can be used during Shunkō that nullifies an opponent's Kidō by hitting it with a Kidō of perfectly opposite speed and energy. The technique can neutralize an opponent's movements. Like Shunkō, Hayao learned this technique from Yoruichi Shihōin.
Shunpo Master: Between the ages of 5 and 8, Hayao trained daily with former 2nd Division Court Guard Squad Captain Yoruichi Shihōin in Shunpo. Even at such a young age, Hayao was very skilled at the art, picking up on the technique very quickly. Over the years (even after his training was completed), Hayao has continued to train himself to become even faster, and is rumored to wear weights every day. The current amount of weight Hayao is carrying on him is unknown.
• Senka: A Shunpo technique where one, moving to their opponent's back, directly attacks and seals one's "Saketsu" and "Hakusui" in two rapid strikes, effectively cutting them off from their spiritual energy flow. A favorite technique of his uncle Byakuya Kuchiki, it was taught to him so that he could properly utilize his speed in combat.
Hakuda Master: Before the age of 13, Hayao actually knew very little about hand-to-hand combat, where as his sister had already spent a few years being trained by their grandfather Isshin Kurosaki. In a sparring match, Hoku broke Hayao’s jaw when one of her punches landed, causing Isshin to stop the match. Hayao would then begin studying and later mastering t'ai chi ch'uan (known for its amazing defensive capabilities). Upon mastering t’ai chi ch’uan Hayao has not once been struck in combat while in a fair fight.
•Shunkō: An advanced technique that combines Hakuda with Kidō. This technique surrounds Hayao’s back and arms with pressurized Kidō based on the element of lightning.
Immense Spiritual Pressure: Just like his father, Hayao has an immense amount of spiritual pressure stored inside of him. When determining where he would be placed in the 13 Court Guard Squads, Hayao gave a showing of the Shikai release of his Fūjin Zanpaku-tō; the spiritual pressure release was enough to knock out seated officers.
Master Assassin: Having undergone training with both Yoruichi Shihōin and Kisuke Urahara, Hayao’s speed was pushed to mere unworldly limits. Having mastered the ways of keeping his spiritual pressure well hidden when entering combat, he is able to strike deadly blows using only Hakuda to destroy his enemies.
Timeline as a Shinigami:
Trained under former 2nd Division Court Guard Squad Captain Yoruichi Shihōin in Shunpo and is the youngest to master the “Flash Cry” technique. Age 5-8
Trained under former 12th Division Court Guard Squad Captain Kisuke Urahara, learning to not only summon his Zanpaku-tō spirits, but also achieved the Bankai level in only two days of training (utilizing Urahara’s unique training method). Age 8-10
Trained under 5th Division Court Guard Squad Captain Shinji Hirako in order to learn how to master and control the powers of his “Hollowification”. Age 10-11
Trained under former Captain of the Kidō Corps Tessai Tsukabishi in the use of kidō. Age 11-12
He trained under Zero Squad and Royal Guard member Tenjirō Kirinji in how to use Kaidō (healing Kidō). Age 12-13
??? Age 13-16 (Between this time period, Hayao’s location was not known, but he was not within the Soul Society)
Graduated within a year after entering the Shin'ō Academy. Age 16
Is the youngest Shinigami to be accepted into the first branch of the Onmitsukidō (Secret Remote Squad). Age 17
Despite still being at a young age, Hayao has shown that he is quite a tactician; rarely going into a fight with a plan in mind. He has proven to be an excellent fit for the Secret Remote Squad, as his speed means that he is able to easily out maneuver his enemies. Sometimes seen as quiet and lazy, many have found Hayao sleeping under a sakura tree, but his work is always completed well ahead of schedule. Prone to disappear at a moment’s notice, many see Hayao as being a bit reclusive and pushing others away, preferring his own space. When he is required to be social however, Hayao is very polite and courteous, showing respect to Squad members of higher ranking and equals alike. There is still much to learn about this young man, and only time will tell just how far he will go.
