Scientist / Inventor /Shapeshifter / Quincy Knight Initiate
Scientist / Inventor /Shapeshifter / Quincy Knight Initiate
[ AT A GLANCE ]
Age / Apparent Age:127 / 18.
Height & Weight: 5'6" & 120 lbs
Hair & Eye Color: Due to her patented series of Transformation and Alteration Bakudo, these colors shift depending on whim, need, or when she feels like it.
Current Base: Her hair is violet with a pink stripe on the left bang. With crimson eyes with violet flecks. While in her ‘Niji’ form. While her ‘Mystique’ form has raven black hair, tied in a high ponytail. With her eyes being a color swap of ‘Niji’s’. Being violet with crimson flecks.
All her eye’s pupils have catlike slit on them.
Voice: Niji’s voice has a velvet like smoothness, with hint of smokiness. It has a resonant and melodious timbre, with gentle inflections. With a rich, but fluid vocal dynamic that mirror’s her emotions.
Sexuality: Basic answer is lesbian.
But more accurate answer is that she bases attraction on aesthetics, intellectual / emotional and spiritual (look, feel, texture, taste of aura) resonance, as well as sensuality. Over base forms. It just happens that she finds females more often than not falls under things she finds attractive.
Characters Current Theme Songs Playlist:
Run For Your Life: This song’s lyrics fits her to a tee. In one part or another in her character development, life, or goals. As well as those her Zanpakuto are leading her towards.
Short Change Hero: Battle Theme and vid 1. (With her gun and weapon training under Natalie. And incorporating that into her Bakudo.)
Last Surprise: Battle Theme 2.
Eevee Song:A Pokemon Jazz Song: All so fitting as her Signature Bakudo skill and personality.
Beneath the Mask: I’m a Shapeshifter, I pose masquerade, hiding both face and mind. All free for you to draw. I’m a shapeshifter, what else should I be? Please don’t take off my mask, revealing dark.
That chorus and the song itself really captures Niji’s personality as a shapeshifter. While the above song fits her playful nature and is so fitting in so many ways.
We’re Not Flawless (Enermatrix Remix): Niji’s Inner World, and collective Zan Theme Song.
Bamboo Beat: Niji’s thoughts on the Quincy Race, and joining the Quincy.
I’ll Stand By You: Niji’s thoughts and feelings towards Frey.
Trust: Niji’s thoughts and feelings for Yui. All the lyrics are fitting for her … well other than the use of the word ‘lonely boy’ to ‘lonely girl’.
Remember The Name: Niji’s current thoughts on Erek. The chorus really fits Niji’s thoughts on him at the moment. “Ten percent luck, twenty percent skill, fifteen percent concentrated power of will! Five percent pleasure, fifty percent pain, one hundred percent reason to remember the name!”
1) Inventive : This is Niji’s spiritual and mental core. The adaptive, creative, and out of the box mentality. Lets her tackle problems in a nonlinear fashion, as well as the creative spark to make things that most others wouldn’t think of, or want to put the effort into building.
2) Venturesome/Adventurous: This is Niji’s physical core, as well as her general take on life. She’s a risk taker. Not worried to take on difficult or dangerous paths to reach her goals. She isn’t afraid to try new things, experiences, or paths. And her adventurous spirit shines through all aspects of her life.
3) Good Natured: This is Niji’s emotional core. Deep down she’s a loving and compassionate soul who wants to make the planes a safer place, and wants to make those she cares about have as good a life as she can give. Either by her hands, or the things birthed by her imagination.
4) Studious: An aspect of her inventiveness. Niji’s a very scholarly individual whom voraciously consumes knowledge. Then takes her knowledge to systematically and as effectively as she can, applies it.
5) Poise: Having spent decades dedicated to survival and the martial arts has helped her whittle away wasteful movements in her actions and bearing. Giving an aura of predatory grace and effortless fluidity in her actions in her day to day life.
1) Self-Centered: Do to over a century of isolation tends think in emotional terms of how it affects her, or how she feels about something. She has a great problem with empathy, or thinking of others feelings on something. Although it is a problem that she’s slowly trying to work on.
2) Heart on her sleeve: She’s very expressive, and whatever she’s feeling it’s plain on her face and mannerisms. She has absolutely zero emotional control, or a filter for being anything other than what she’s feeling at any given time. Making her an easy read.
3) Obsessive: When it comes to something that interests her, or piques her curiosity. She will throw herself at the subject till either she’s completed it, taken it as far as she can go at her current state, or her curiosity has been satiated.
4) Value Dissonance / Feral: Niji is a Hunter and a predator. Having spent a century surviving in Rukongai’s wilds facing apex predators, and the elements. Where Survival of the Fittest was the only law. When in combat, or in any situation that reminds her of those times, she becomes a gleeful, predacious creature, whose mind is sent back to that time. Likewise the Jungle’s moral norms and Civilizations moral norms have a large dissonance that Niji struggles with from time to time. And causes struggles between what’s appropriate or not when dealing with others.
1) Inventor: This is a defining talent of Niji. It encompasses everything she does from spell work, to her job choice. From Kido to technology. She’s always trying to push the limit of what’s doable, or finding ways to make things better for those she cares about.
2) Mage: Niji spends what time she isn’t inventing, or training, working on making new spells. The biggest ones are her shapeshifting, and clothing changing series of Kido.
3) Martial Artist: Something she has honed in the Forests outside Rukongai for over a century. She uses a mix of Shunpo, Internal Martial Arts, and anything needed to win in a fight. While conserving strength for other predators / opponents.
4) Medic: Has medical training from her time in the Third Division.
5) Survivalist: She has over a century of non-stop survival training under her belt. That has seen her through the worst that Rukongai’s weather had to offer.
Loyalties:After Obsession’s attack. She has very few loyalties left of her old life before her hospitalization. Her loyalties are to:
- Queen Frey, and the Quincy: Being inducted into the Quincy Order, and trained to be a Knight serving her Queen."]http://bleach-gotei.com/thread/20193/knight-training-niji-erek-closed] Being inducted into the Quincy Order, and trained to be a Knight serving her Queen. Niji swore fealty to her before Frey was officially Queen. Now out of the hospital, she’s cashing in on that promise. Hoping someday being both her Knight, and a fitting ambassador between Niji’s two people.
Is disguised as a dark haired catgirl, (under physical appearance) when on Earth, or working for the Quincy. Niji follows her for her strength of personality, character, and a person worth serving for the betterment of both Soul Society and the world as a whole.
- Yui Shokotsuki: BFF "]http://bleach-gotei.com/post/303998/thread]BFF . To Niji, Yui’s thoughts and input are as important as her Queens, although she wouldn’t betray the Quincy. Yui’s opinions, and wants are on equal level to Niji’s own. As the woman who saved her heart, and from a weight she had become numb too for all to long. Niji’s in love with her, even though she knows that Yui isn’t ready for that. Will do absolutely anything for her, and knows Yui would do the same for her.
- -Erek Blackmore: Her mentor, trainer, and the person preparing her for life as a Knight of the Quincy Order. Has a massive amount of trust and respect for him. Him helping her grow in combat and improving her skills makes her feel a massive amount of trust. Especially for the effort he’s taken so far into her development.
Those in her eyes are the only three beings she’d do absolutely anything for in this part of her life. As long as it doesn’t include betraying any of the others she’s loyal to. Frey for shaping her in ways that Frey will probably never know. Yui for being her hero, and saving her heart. And Erek for all that he’s done for her, even if it was under Frey’s orders.
There’s a chance that, that very small list of individuals can grow as she grows and develops as a person.

[ ON THE SURFACE ]
-- -Primary Form: Niji Niji has a voluptuous, shapely hourglass figure. With a well-endowed chest, that her Sarashi does little to hide. Her body is filled with the lean, taut yet supple, and chiseled figure of a professional martial artists as well as survivalist. Her muscles move under her smooth skin with the oiled ease of an apex predator. As she walks her body moves with a graceful economy of movements, and even a year after her run in with Obsession and being stuck in the hospital, having dimmed her actions. The century of those habits still shine through.
The other noticeable thing about her pointing violet cat ears, that poke out from her long violet locks. Giving her another range of communicating her emotions, or showing interest. And being new additions since her progress in transformational kido, is something she’s still trying to fully get the handel of. But their adorable look and hunter like efficiency makes them handy additions to Niji. Who’s just now seeing thanks to her best friend, that she’s not as horrid as a monster as she once thought. And is shaping her body slowly, but surely to mirror that.
Although Niji’s physical appearance is never really a solid form. Thanks to her patented Shifting Bakudo-Kaido Kidos everything from hair, eyes, and even physical traits are altered whenever she feels bored, the whim catches her, or she has need to look like someone else entirely. But the above form is usually her base form.
Her other base forms are:
(the only difference is that she wears a black, sleeveless karate gi, and black cat ears. Commissioned work coming on its way.).
In her form as ‘Mystique’, the name given to her by Erek Blackwater. Is fairly tall standing at 6 ft., weighing in at 124 lbs. She is slender, but surprisingly curvaceous. With a well endowed chest. Raven hair, that hangs down to her waist. That she usually has tied up in a high ponytail. ‘Mystique’ has fair, peach skin. Striking Violet eyes with specks of crimson (looking like drops of blood in the eye), with a cat-like slit for pupils, and her eyebrows resemble lightning bolts.
This is the form she currently wears while with the Quincy Order as a trainee and initiate. And when on Earth.
More to be added as Niji creates them.
Niji’s reiatsu looks like a swirling rainbow. With dances of light within the storm. With certain colors overpowering others depending on her emotions. With warm colors being more prevalent when angry and cooler ones when she’s happy or excited. When around others her aura makes tendrils around others that prod, grab, or caress other’s auras like a curious octopus.
[ BEHIND THE EYES ]
Personality: As of Obsession’s assault on Soul Society, and her confrontation of him Niji’s a mess, but trying to recover. Thanks mostly from emotional support of Yui Shokotsuki which has done wonders on her self-esteem and getting over a large chunk of her past trauma. Her emotions are readily reflected on her face, and voice. And it’s little secret to what she’s feeling, especially if she’s caught unprepared or emotionally compromised and doesn’t have the time to steady herself. In a fight, or when in any wilderness setting she becomes seemingly carefree, cheerful, and exuberant. Niji is also very impressionable to her Zanpakuto Spirits, caving into their requests, and taking cues on what to do when they tell her something. She does at time disagree, or complain. But usually they can get her to do what they want, or at least make request of others.
Goals & Achievements:
1) Is the only Shinigami who’s Zanpakuto actively entertain and allow transfer of Zanpakuto from one Inner World to another. Something that shows up in a lot of her threads with other Shinigami.
2) Threw a pig carcass at Obsession’s face, and hit him with a Stink Bomb Bakudo. And she survived the confrontation.
3) Got inducted as a trainee to be a Knight for Queen Frey and the Quincy.
4) Developed Shapeshifting Bakudo.
1) Become a Knight of the Order.
2) Bridge relations between Quincy and Shini, with Quincy Interest at heart.
3) Work on making Shini-Quincy tech. Usable by both parties, or “Quincy Inspired” Shini devices.
[ GUARDIAN ANGEL ]
Release Phrase: Ten no Seimei [name of Spirit].
In order. [Top] Inari (Bankai, hidden behind the Resort City’s Grand Temple Doors).
Benzaiten (True Shikai. Requires harmony between Uzume and Dakini, only is fused a short time, once Shikai release ends, both sisters separate). [Bottom] Uzume.
Inari is a spirit that Niji won’t be meeting for a while. It’s Niji’s Bankia, and is hidden behind the Grand Temple Doors, that lays in the center of the city. When she sees her, she’ll notice a maternal spirit with a regal demeanor. She has long blonde hair with her hair wrapped in intricate red ribbons and the back of her hair wrapped in a high ponytail.
Her robe is made of Shunko energy. Two opposing spiritual energies of corrupted Zan energy and pure Zan energy in harmony. This robe is open in the back and is constantly breaking and reforming on the back.
Her face is the picture of feminine regality, maternal grace, and wisdom. On her forehead is a third eye that is mirrored in the sky of Resort City, and is the power that fuels her fragments and Resort City’s powers and abilities. With glowing yellow eyes, and from the side of either side of her head is a bone like growth that has fox ears. Looking much like an Arrancar’s broken mask.
Inari is the voice of reason and wisdom. With a deep seated need to protect and look after Spirits such as Zanpakuto and Inner Hollow. Seeing them, and treating them like children. Her driving force is to offer sanctuary and peace to all spirits, and is easily angered at those who neglect, abuse, or mistreat spirits. Something she’s seen as common amongst Soul Society.
She’s very creative, artistic, and intelligent. With a deep seated need to see the planes safe and better. But is disheartened by the amount of pain and despair in the planes. Especially wrongs done to other Zan bu their Shinigami.
This spirit is the fusion of Dakini and Uzume. Forming a complete, true release. Although getting it will be even more difficult than gaining Bankai. Since it requires both Dakini and Uzume to work together and be in harmony. Which currently they are polar opposites and get along like fire and napalm.
Appearance wise she looks very much like an Arrancar, but her spiritual energy sense like Inari’s in that it is a mix of pure Zan energy and corrupt Zan energy. Making her feel like a Zanpakuto, but at the same time something alien and off radiates from her. But not quite Hollow.
Wrapped around her chest is a ivory bone Sarashi, with bone like growths attached to her shoulders and back. With wires attached to her arms. Which themselves are covered in bone like growth. The hands shift into hand cannons. Giving her overall appearance a cybernetic look.
On her face is a bone visor that has fox like ears (like what appears on Inari). With the eye in the visor being the same eye as Inari’s third eye. With her other eye being a golden color.
Benzaiten has the artistic drive and sense of decorum of Dakini, and the extrovertedness as well as need to look after others of Uzume. She marks those she senses are mistreating the Spirits, as well as those she trusts.
Benzaiten has the artistic drive and sense of decorum of Dakini, and the extrovertedness as well as need to look after others of Uzume. She marks those she senses are mistreating the Spirits, as well as those she trusts.
Her Voice: Sounds like a Dakini and Uzume talking at once.
Power: Allows Zan to freely travel between Zanpakuto. As well as be stable outside their host Inner World.
One half of Niji’s partial Zanpakuto. Has the same hairstyle as Inari, with a regal and elegant face, and gentle emerald colored eyes. Dakini wears an embroidered, white taoists robe with red trim. She’s a woman of modest figure, and prim posture. Resembling Niji’s ideal aspect of a lady with proper grace and decorum.
When she walks, it’s with a graceful glide, every move filled with elegance and grace. Unless she’s dealing with Uzume’s shenanigans and hijinks, where Uzume manages to bring out the less elegant manners from her.
Personality: Dakini is in every sense of the word a proper lady. Filled with grace, decorum, and refined elegance. She takes life at a calm pace, observing and understanding the world around her. But also filled with a deep seated care about Zanpakuto of other Shinigami. Their spirits, and the well being of them. Uses her ability to allow refuge, relaxation, and rest to the spirits of others. So that they may have a moment of peace and relaxation away from the isolation of their world and the actions of their Shini.
Spiritual Energy: Dakini’s aura is a teal cloud filled with floating plant life. All around her feel a was of calm, maternal energy radiating off her. If touched feels like lying on grass on a warm spring day, with a scent that is likewise reminiscent of it.
Her Voice:Sounds like Erza.
1) Creative Mage: As skilled as Niji in Bakudo and Kaido. Being the source of Niji’s dreams and creativity. Usually sticks to bindings, wards, and healing. Especially healing other Toju (Spirits of an Inner World made Manifest).
2) Spirit Fox: Much like the foxes that inhabit her Garden of Change Inn/Museum. She is capable of transforming into said fox. Much like Niji is able to shapeshift, but in a far greater limited capacity.
3) Plant Creation: Creates the fuana that inhabit Resort City, and the ingredients for Uzume’s teas, and liquors. Uses Bakudo and her talent as a mage, to create plants with specific effects that she views as needed / useful to her guests. Or to Toju who are in need of something specific.
The second Zanpakuto fragment, and the corrupted Zan to Dakini’s pure Zan. With Niji’s curvaceous form, and endowment. Her face is mischievous, alluring, and provocative. With cat ears surrounded by an unruly red hair, that is hung over her shoulder in a loose ponytail. With wide, golden cat eyes that glimmer with playful mirth.
She wears a red sari wrap with gold trim that shows off her endowment shamelessly. With a red, fading to yellow skirt with an open slit on her left leg, going all the way up to the waistband. The skirt is embroidered with spring themes.
Her entire presence screams party animal, and luxurious connoisseur of pleasure, in all of it’s forms. As touchy feely as her Shinigami, she takes it up to eleven, and moving not with grace, but with a prowling exuberance.
Niji said the two best quotes for wrapping Uzume’s personality in a nutshell.
... she’s like a cat downing bottles of liquid catnip … on meth … while being injected with sugar.
But in a way she’s like a crazy, wild child, sister that you hear rumors about.
- Niji talking to Yui, describing her.
Uzume is boisterous, vicarious, vivacious, and full of campy, hammy levels of joie de vivre cranked up to 11. She lives by the mottos, “You only live once, so live free, party hard, and live each day to the fullest.”; and “If all you have is booze, all your problems look like shot glasses.”
She lives to fulfill the desires of Zanpakuto Spirits she plays hostess to, taking care of those under her care, while at the same time enjoying every desire, vice, sensation life has to offer. It’s that connoisseur of vice and desires that makes her Brothel of Worldly Delights such a success at tending to the relaxation and fulfillment of those who pass through her little slice of Resort City.
Spiritual Essence: Those with keen Reiatsu Perception can sense a hollowesque feel to her. A sense of not being normal. Yet not an Inner Hollow. Makes her spiritual energy come across as alien, corrupted, and off.
Her Voice: Sounds like Kisara from Mightiest Disciple Kenichi
Inner World:Resort City:
Full details can be found under Resort City found here.
Resort City is an open to the site Inner World. Filled with everything one can expect from a resort. Entertainment, Restaurants, Training Rooms, Game Rooms. Everything a Spirit or a Shini would need to be happy.
As the link shows it is a rich, vibrant, and full of potential for Niji’s Zanpakuto, all those they bring into it. And with Uzume’s craving to entertain, and attention seeking ways, usually has more than one Spirit at a time. Serving as Resort City’s welcoming committee. While Dakini being more reserved, seeks to a more subdued way to make guests feel welcome, tending to her Garden of Change to ensure all their guests have sustenance if they so choose.
Skilled Hostess: Knows what people want, and has a good read on a guest a good percentage of the time.
Artistic Mage: Uses Bakudo to put on plays, or other forms of entertainment.
Super Alcoholic Tolerance: Can either drink anyone or anything under the table. Or match them gourd for gourd.
Exotic Zan: Wink, wink, nudge, nudge. She's the representation of all of Niji's base desires and urges shed from Inari. And has enough experience with other Zan to give her a wide berth of skills, knowledge, and tastes (no further explanation needed).
Zanpakutō: Nij’s Zanpakuto regardless of released or not. Looks like a normal Katana. When released there is no shift between appearances or anything that shows it’s in use.
Power Justification: Since forever with Niji. Bringing players Zan into her Inner World (and they be stable) has been a huge part of her character and Zan story arcs. With the Character’s and Zans developing side by side.
The power doesn’t control other’s Zans or Inner Worlds. But rather manifests what has been an integral part of Niji as a character. That and her Bankai is going to basically be Muramasa. (rather than one at a time like Shikai; Bankai will be the area of her Rei Per radius.).
Looking at almost every thread Niji’s done where a Shini’s been there. Uzume (and recently Dakini) has brought other Zans into her world to entertain them, making that power a major plot device in Niji’s threads. And the Resort City has been open to everyone to use as a plot device if they wanted for over a year.
[ LEGACY CREATED ]
Niji’s as a human was a frail child, born with a terminal illness and bed ridden. Other than her family, and her imaginary friends. She had no contact with the outside world outside of her imagination and the few stories she read. At death, she was told that she would go to a place where she was told, that “good little girls live happily forever.” That was the first lie she ever received about the Soul Society. Once she arrived, she was promptly ignored by the mass of other souls looking placement into Rukongai. Eventually growing bored she looked for a Shinigami to help her, and was placed with a family in the outermost Eastern District.
For a time she was happy, but happiness was something that Niji was doomed to be short lived. Only a few months after settling in, her family disappeared. Which wasn’t that uncommon during those times. Pluses, simply vanished every now and then. Sometimes entire families, whether from criminal elements, wild animals, or simply were there one day, gone the next. After they disappeared she tried looking for someone to help her, but the hard times of the outer districts, left the people there unwilling to add the burden of another soul to their lives. So in fit of frustration, and child like stupidity. Left into the Forests to ‘go on an adventure’, and that she could ‘take care of herself’ rather than going deeper into the districts closer to the Seireitei.
***8 years later***
Niji woke up to an empty shack that her and her master had shared since he found her after her blatant act of stupidity. When he found her she was surrounded by wolves driven hungry by the surrounding villages hunting their food. They scattered under the power of his attacks, as light as they were as she found out later. And after hearing her story, let her know that he might as well train her to defend herself. So she didn’t die the second he left his sight. And that began her training, eight years under a person she only knew as Sensei, a crotchety old Soul, studied a form of Hakuda called Kageoni. The Demon’s Shadow. Utilized Shunpo, Reiatsu Perception, and Hakuda to release fast blows capable of striking at range. Forging one’s body into a blade capable of cutting all opposition.
But once her training was too he master’s liking that she could survive. He left, and Niji was alone once again. At least this time with the knowledge to survive the elements, predators, and any snags she would run into. That isolation and solitary existence continued for a century. Simply exploring the wilderness, and the deepest reaches of her playground exploring Soul Society’s wilderness deeper than most souls would ever bother to trek. With brief forays into society, but due to her feral nature, and unfortunate coincidences that happened when she arrived. Never was able to stay for long.
Yet during all of her time, and even when she braved herself to go to districts to live with others. She felt a need to belong, to be wanted, to have a happy life filled with others. But knowing that there was something wrong with her, some indescribable evil thing within her core that she couldn’t shake that left her alone. With the only place she belonged was with the beasts, and the occasional Hollow roamed. Hunting for survival, killing for pleasure, and the joy each day of knowing she survived to live to see it. Besting the food nature had thrown her way. A century where she was more beast than woman, forging her instincts and techniques with no need to think about the consequences of her actions.
Niji was eventually found by a Shinigami from Division 5 that she ran into. Brought into civilization was taught to control her uncontrolled spiritual powers. But it would take another six years before she was considered brought back to civilization enough to join the Academy. In that time she re-discovered a joy for learning. Soaking up what the new world offered her at a voracious pace. Throwing herself into it with the same fervor that she did with her survival in the Forests. Even though there were plenty of values that too this day Niji carries with her that are dissonant for civilized or rational beings. Such as hunting Hollows for food; accidentally hunting and eating pets that wander the streets rather than being kept at home or near their owners; slipping into a feral mode when in combat or out to kill something; and lack of social aptitude / grace.
Entering the Academy was in a very literal way. Like entering a brand new world, one where she felt like she could finally belong after so long. It was where her analytical and creative mind could flourish like a mind like a plant to water. It wasn’t long till Niji’s awakened her Shikai. And much like the play Uzume showed Soushisha in her play on her birth and origins. Her forming Zanpakuto took the buildup of residual Hollow Energy within her and it’s energy corrupted her purity. While not making her an Inner Hollow, it still caused her to fracture.
Inari, bound herself behind the temple of the Resort City. An Inner World where Niji could be filled with many different beings, where she could belong. With family made of Zan, her zan. And where her eye could watch over all beings within the world, using her power, now her child’s power, to fill the void in Niji’s heart.
But much like the child’s mother, the child was unbalanced. The two natures of energy conflicting and breaking her further. The pure Zan becoming Dakini, which held the child’s ability to bring others to the City to fulfill Niji’s heart’s greatest desire. As well as allow her to travel to others so that distance would no longer separate her from those she cared about. With the other, formed from the residual energy that broke the original zan being Uzume. Representing her desires unbound, and her need to fill her life with others. To belong. Allowing Zans from where ever Niji’s perception touched, or whoever carried a part of that world with them, to move out of their Zanpakuto’s no matter how long (as was the case with Douji), to fill her heart.
***Niji the Shinigami Inventor***
After graduating Niji passed between Division 3 as a healer. Interested in learning about the body, as a way to learn if she could find that indiscernible evil in her that drove others away. As well as proving to herself and others that she could ‘do good’, ‘be good’. To prove that she was worthy of belonging. From there she started developing her signature series of Bakudo. The ability to Transform and Alter appearances of things. It was there that she found Tokiyo Fujikaji as a driving light of what she saw as a Shinigami she wanted to be like, and when he left. She transferred to the Fourth Division. A place where she felt she could make a better and more unified Soul Society.
Call to Action:
Niji Story Arc I: Drunkenly Depowered Rainbow Arc (in chronological order. Important threads. Given a short synopsis of the story highlighting important bits):
Day One at the Fourth: This is the first day of Niji’s first day at the Fourth Division. Where Shinn Hirazawa showed her around what’d be the Division she stayed with till her stay at the Hospital.
Shenanigans of Two Spirits: Was when Uzume first started bringing souls into Resort City. Shinpei’s dislike of his Zan represented the first Zanpakuto to become a permenent member of her world. While no power was granted, the child Zan became a mascot to show all Zan that they could be safe and at peace in their world. Safe from abuse, neglect, and malignancy of Shinigami. A world for Zan.
Paperwork Kills: Niji meets Alexander, a trustworthy Shinigami in her eyes, and a fellow tea lover. Working through forms, helping her through the labyrinth of documents needed for her to go through. Truly a gentleman. Where as Uzume shows herself and her true name to Bla Nord, the Zan Spirit that Uzume found to be extremely fun and entertaining for her, as much as she was for him.
A friend who Niji had become close too, and a Spirit that Uzume found entertaining, in a creative challenge sort of way. A member who worked for the actual communications system of Division 3. Rather than R&D for for communications. Followed up in Rainbows, mints, and lavender where Hajime drops off a thank you gift for Niji … although like most people in Niji’s life. She disappeared. Having looked after her leave of the hospital. Reaffirming that everyone in her life she cares about or gets close to disappears or leaves her.
Facets of the Soul: Has Niji in a secret research project with Chie, looking into Hollowification. Something that didn’t go anywhere with Niji after Uzume’s battle with Chie’s Spirit, Asatsuyu, endangered those precious Spirits that Uzume saw as under her protection. And showed her true nature. A Spirit who’d protect with all her might those Spirits in Niji’s Inner World.
Níðhöggr My Bones: Niji meets the Quincy who’d be her queen. Get’s to learn about Reishi Manipulation, the manipulation of particals for the following reasons:
"That and I'm interested in learning Reishi Manipulation, well quite honestly using Reishi Manipulation to better my Kido, learn how it works on souls personally, and try someday to make things mixing Shinigami Technology and Quincy Technology to better both of our people. After all with some Shini tech, I'm sure you Quincy could take out Hollows more efficiently, or even better your personal lives. Without having to risk as much as you do ... as for what I can offer in return for learning the Quincy Ways? Well ... what can I offer? Other than a potential Shinigami Friend, who will try protecting you when I'm near by. If you want to that is?"
It was that, that lead her to her Second Arc. Later in life. It was from this that would shape Niji’s future in ways she could never begin to fathom. And from what little she learned, she was able to jump her knowledge of Kido and her Signature Kidos by leaps and bounds.
A Rather Unusual Distraction: Following not to long after her lesson and meeting with her Queen Frey. And the end of the Drunkenly Depowered Rainbow Arc. Niji faced Obsession, and using the lessons and tactics of her battle with Frey managed to get past Obsessions shields. A rather impressive feat in itself. But ended up with several dead citizens killed because of her actions, and an encounter while she survived pissing off a Mad God. Left her mentally broken. The rest of the encounter was a blur, just that she survived.
Fit For Duty?: A year after facing Obsession. She was released. She first found out that Shinigami treated Obsession’s terrorist attack as if it never happened. Nor why she was in a media, and communication blackout. Nor why she was kept in solitary for a year. It even baffled the doctor who released her. But one thing was certain. She had a lot to make up and learn from what had happened since she was as the doctor said. Forgotten, Slipped in the cracks of bureaucracy, or kept out of the way by her superiors. Something that has left her with more questions than answers. As well as a healthy mistrust of doctors and hospitals.
An Odd Request: Meets a teacher in Mako. Getting the dust from a year of her skills rusting, knocked off. While Uzume gets a special guest. Her first since her trauma from sensing Obsessions Zanpakuto, and meeting him.
Wilderness Training: Niji meets Yui. The Shinigami that saves her heart, and whom Niji loves. Would do anything for. And who finds a friend whom she makes an oath to always be there if she’s ever needed. And much like her oath to Frey, is an oath that will shape her future for the rest of her days. In ways she can’t even begin to comprehend.
Way of the Beast: Niji finally gets her signature Transformation and Appearance altering Bakudo to get her to shift into an animal. Making an over year long progression and study, pay off.
Need of a Friend: Niji meets Alex to talk about some problems. Is her kick off before she joins the Quincy Order. (updated as thread progresses)
A Knight In Training: This is the true start to the Shini Knight Arc. The start of the process to her be inducted as a Knight of the Order. Starting to fulfill her promise better both of their people. And be there to protect her. Eventually someday, possibly an ambassador for the Quincy to the Shinigami who’d truly look out for Quincy interest.
Hone Your Edge: Her training for the Quincy begins. Under the tutelage of Erek Blackmore. And much like how Frey opened her eyes to new things and bettered her abilities. Far more than her time as a Shinigami, by leaps and bounds.
Can Never Be Unseen: Niji’s training under Natalie Forge begins. (updated as thread progresses)
***That is her story so far. Where the Shini Knight goes from these humble beginnings. Only time will tell.***
