Reiatsu Colour: Golden Brown.

Physical Description

Lean and shabby, Kine cares little for the hassle of maintain his personal appearance. A shock of unkempt orange hair flows from his head, framing a calm, relaxed face who's washed out grey eyes convey a sense of inner peace. Rarely seen fazed by much of anything he's usually seen with his hands either resting in his pockets or running absently through his hair in a half hearted attempt to flatten it. The clothes he wears hang loose on his frame, not because he's overly thin, but simply because its the style he prefers. Standing in at 5"7 he is of average height some of which is lost to his perpetual slouch. The remains of his mask stretch across the lower right of his face, spanning from cheek to chin, it resembles part of the jawline of the traditonal mask of the muse of comedy of theatrical convention, albiet heavily stylised and built up in bone with an almost sinister twist of the smile. His hollow hole resides over where his liver should be.


Revealed to be manipulative and schemeing beyond what his origional actions while serving under the Septima implied. Unnaverse to sacrificing others or at times even his own well being to get what he wants. He is still layed back and calm when he can be, but those who bypass his expectations or work directly against him can often draw out of him the anger no battle situation could hope for. Beneath this second layer of deception lies a core of emotion for his adopted family, now his Fraccion. Caring for their safety above all others much of his actions have been either to secure them or to take revenge on those who have hurt them and there is little he would not do to secure either of these goals though revenge on certain individuals burns brightly in his mind. He would never go against an order from his superiors but he often takes a wry amusement from making it hard for them to give him an order in the first place. He acts as if everyone he meets is his friend, and is cheerful even to his enemies. At times this is often a mask, his smiling face often hiding his true feelings as much as his hollow mask ever did.

He tries to avoid combat if he has the option, preferring the peaceful option and while he rarely rises to taunts he is easily drawn into talking about his beliefs; his naivety that his opponents will easily be drawn into his speech and wordplay often puts him at risk. When forced into a battle he descends into what he refers to as the dance of death, where he views the battlefield as a medium of artistic expression where two warriors compare their skill and finesse. As such he looks down on and is often saddened by those who ignore agility and subtlety in favour of raw power. He keeps his face calm as best he can, the better to unnerve his opponent.


Arlequín (Harlequin). Unusually his Zanpukto takes the form of a Glaive which he keeps strapped to his back at all times, the shaft is tasselled and a long ribbon trails from a hole in the blade. Lightweight and perfectly balanced it is perfectly suited to acrobatic combat.


Leap, Arlequín!
His mask grows out to cover his entire jaw line with a band rising up to encircle his forehead. The other half of the mouth is revealed to be the theatrical muse of tragedy, that half coloured black. The uniform becomes chequered black and white across his left leg, striped black and white on the other, with the same but inverted on his arms. The main body piece of his uniform is quartered black and white and plates of a bone like substance armour his shoulders and hips. His zanupkto gains a second blade reversed on the bottom identical to the first though the front facing edges on both blades become heavily serrated. In this form he gains a high level of control over his sonido and can attack or even manoeuvre at seemingly impossible angles mid jump in this manner. A pair of form fitting boots made of supercondensed bone adorn his feet making his kicks lethal to his enemies. His defensive capability is not increased so he relies on his boosted agility for his defence.
He also gains access to:

Other forms

Kinezumi has been shown to have access to not one, but three releases. At least one of which he has acknowledged not to be his own, but copied from the now deceased numeros 42 which leaves questions about whether the other release is his own or copied.

Primo danza , nero rosa turbino
His stance shifts and a new reiatsu flares forth, the brown now tinged with black in places. From the existing hollow armour on his body and his mask, an intricate pattern of curving lines stretch their way across the entirety of his body, razor sharp thorns then grow from these lines coated in a powerful hallucinogen. This poison requires his opponents blood as a catalyst to properly effect the target, without the addition of his opponents blood which turns the thorns to black the poison is at less than half strength. His blade seperates into two seperate blades, the handle shifting to form two swords with the blades remaining unchanged, his fighting style shifting greatly to compesate for the change from a twin headed glaive to twin blades. He often uses the ribbons to secure the blades to his arms to further facillitate acrobatic combat. His mask shifts so that both halves of his jaw show tragedy. This form seems to be a direct evolution of his usual release, though it is unknown if he can access it without releasing Arlequin first.

Ruggito , Zanna de Drago
A pair of bone white draconic wings stretch from his back, extending to a wing span of aproximatly 5-6 metres. These are surprisingly as hard as the heirro of the rest of his body and can be combined with shunpo for high speed maneuvering. His glaive vanishes entirely to be replaced by cruely barbed clawed gauntlets adorning his hands which may well be his transformed hands. His mask shifts to cover the right side of his face shifting to show a relief of a face with a fairly neutral experssion though sharp teeth are evident on the mouthline. His hair shifts to a wild shock of jet black which trails midway down his back. The exact abilities of this form are yet to be revealed but Kinezumi has addmited that it is not his but that of one of his dead "family"
