PostSubject: Shinigami Race Information   Tue Jul 16, 2013 3:47 pm

The Shinigami

They are souls with a high level of innate Spiritual Energy, recruited from the ranks of the residents and nobility of Soul Society. Their bodies are composed of Reishi instead of atoms. This means that just like most other types of spirits, they can only be seen by other spiritually aware entities, which excludes most Humans. Nevertheless, they are quite capable of influencing their environment. When souls with exceptional spiritual energy train their bodies, they reach the level of Shinigami. The most talented of them become affiliated with various organizations like the Gotei 13 and the Onmitsukidō. Sometimes, a Shinigami is born among the residents of the Rukongai, and in some rare cases from Seireitei.

Their Duty:



  • Konsō (魂葬, Soul Burial): the process by which a Shinigami sends wandering Pluses (souls) in the living world and send them to their respective place. Either Soul Society if they are good in life, or to Hell if their life was full of evil acts (such as murders, theft, etc). Konsō is performed by using the hilt of the Shinigami's Zanpakutō, tapping the soul on the head and transporting them to the afterlife.





  • Hollow Cleansing: When a Shinigami slays a Hollow (evil spirit) with their Zanpakutō, they cleanse their sins. Once this takes place, a Hollow will return to its former state as a Plus and is led into Soul Society. This is called sublimation. Souls that live in Soul Society are reborn again into the human world. Not all Hollows are sent to the Soul Society. Since Zanpakutō are only capable of cleansing sins committed after becoming a Hollow, Hollows that committed serious crimes when they were still Human are sent to Hell when they are slain. Also, if they are destroyed by a Quincy, Hollows are completely vanquished and cannot ever return to the Soul Society.





  • Soul Governance: Shinigami are responsible for governing the flow of spirits between the Human World and Soul Society. This is commonly carried out by balancing the total number of souls by moving and managing them in the human world. All of the soul-related jobs are under their authority.





The Gotei 13

The Gotei 13 (護廷十三隊, Goteijūsantai; 13 Division Imperial Guards, 13 Court Guard Squads is the primary military branch of Soul Society. It is also the main military organization that most Shinigami join after the academy.

The Mission:

The Gotei 13 serves as a military force with its primary responsibilities consisting of:



  • The defense of the Seireitei, the center of Soul Society.




  • The deployment of Division members into enemy territory for combat operations.




  • The deployment of Task Forces as defensive measures in the world of the living.




  • The guiding of souls to the Soul Society.




The General Operations:

The Gotei 13, in contrast to the normal operations of modern-day militaries, does not operate as a cohesive unit normally. The command of the divisions are generally left to the discretion of its particular Captain, who commonly runs it whatever way he or she sees fit, allowing for the change of a division's traditional duties to an entirely new set and even the creation of a separate institution connected to the division. The Gotei 13's main duty is to defend the Seireitei but they are also allocated districts in Rukongai to defend. In addition to these duties, Shinigami also have to deal with the business of being assigned to the Human World.

The only general authority to call forth a combined front would be that of an edict from the Central 46 Chambers, or more often the Captain-Commander. It is not uncommon for captains to not see each other as a whole group for long periods of time, except for cases involving a threat to all of the Soul Society, a captain's punishment, or to a lesser degree, a captain's promotion. On a regular basis, the captains are spread out all across the Soul Society doing their divisions' duties, whatever they may be. They are, in fact, so far spread out that getting the Captains together as a group, or even getting their lieutenants together as a group, could normally take a day to accomplish.

Unless specifically ordered by the Captain-Commander, captains can choose whether or not to attend meetings (at their own risk) or not even involve themselves in the daily situations of the Soul Society. Captains are not allowed, without permission, to carry out activities outside of their normal jurisdiction or their division. The captain of one division cannot punish the subordinates of another captain.

The Captain’s Council

The Captains congregate together in the main hall of the First Division Headquarters to discuss important issues involving their specific divisions and matters that affect Soul Society. This council is highly formal with the captain-commander leading its proceedings. All captains are considered equal (with the exception of the captain-commander) and determine the course of their individual division unless dictated otherwise by the captain-commander. Votes are carried out via a unanimous consensus.

Steps to becoming a Captain:

There are three known ways in which to become a Captain of the Gotei 13. And these are:

1. Captain proficiency test (隊首, taishu): A test which requires the ability to perform Bankai. Nearly all Shinigami become captains using this method. At least three existing captains, including the Captain-Commander, have to witness the test. Here on Souls Unleashed, this method will be enforced if one hopes to ascend to the position of Captain. This has to be done In Character of course; OCC/OOC will not count.

2. Personal Recommendation: To have personal recommendations from at least six captains and approval from at least three of the remaining seven. Here, this method will be enforced if one hopes to ascend to the position of Captain. This process may be the most difficult of them all, considering one has to take the time to get the approval of the other Captains. This must be carried out In Character if it is chosen as one of the three steps.

3. Trial by Combat: To defeat a captain one-on-one with at least 200 witnesses from the captain's division. Here on Souls Unleashed, this method may also be employed. However, as Souls Unleashed is an AU site, getting 200 witnesses may prove to be impossible. As such, by using the Captain’s proficiency test method, one may be able to succeed. This means the Captains Commander and two other Captains must be present in a In Character Topic.



The Gotei 13 Divisions & Duties:


Ichibantai (1st Division)- The First Division is ranked highest among the 13 Divisions. Even subordinate members of the First Division are considered model Shinigami.

More specifically the Sotaicho, whose authority supersedes that of other Captains etc. The Ichibantai is more or less all the all seeing eye of the Gotei 13. Captains and Lieutenants of other divisions will often relay important information to the Sotaicho.
Division Perk: All members of this division regardless of rank are allowed to create missions in correlation to their rank. IE: Lt makes Class 2 and lower missions, 3rd seat can make Class 3 and lower missions etc. The creator of the mission will recieve 1/6th of the experience the mission rewards when it is completed.
