Obutsu Dokami

Name: Obutsu Dokami (first name, surname)
Race: Spiritually Aware Human (Japanese)
Age: ~22
Reiatsu: Sienna

Origin: Little is known of Obutsu Dokami's life, outside of the fact that he was, until a year ago, an ordinary J-City salaryman. One night he vanished (after a truly epic binge), and returned after three weeks, wild-eyed and bushy-haired, claiming an epiphany, before vanishing again. In recent weeks he's been seen back in J-City, sporting a new look, a negative attitude toward the spiritual, and what appears to be a zanpaktou.

Personality: Obutsu tends to be calm, the few words he speaks being philosophical in nature - he has the quiet self-assurance of a fanatic. When in battle, however, he almost immediately becomes a wild-eyed berserker, attacking the enemy with calculated ferocity, screaming battle-cries while snarling like a maniac.

Appearance: Obutsu wears a light brown suit-jacket along with a plain white t-shirt, two belts, and a pair of sandals. He has brown eyes and a tan, and wears his hair in a ponytail-bun. His zanpaktou is worn on the belts.

Abilities: Obutsu displays skills typical to a Shinigami Vice Captain (outside of Kido) along with some strange abilities that can be best attributed to the nature of his zanpaktou spirit.

Zanpaktou Spirit: Nakasutama
Nakasutama is a constant-release type zanpaktou, taking the form of a large shamshir with three brass spheres ringing the hilt, and four fang-like protrusions extending outward from above them. Her abilities are as yet unknown. In her spirit form she takes the shape of a 'genki' woman of about six-inches with prodigious curves, brass tattoos, fangs, and a strange round hat.

However, what is more interesting than her appearance is how very active she is - "Tama-tan" as she calls herself, is capable of manifesting physically, and often engages in conversation with people other than Obutsu, though she's yet to be seen outside of his company. This is possibly due to the fact that she is not, strictly speaking, his zanpaktou, but rather approached him during aforesaid binge with a deal - she would let him wield her, and in exchange, he would make war on the spirit world.

Since arriving in Japan, Obutsu has been hired by Moulton & Grandier, ostensibly a law firm, alongside Gregory Raspin, a partner he is rapidly developing a rapport with.

The Book Of Rippukami Obutsu
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want
He makes me down to lie
Through pastures green He leadeth me
The silent waters by.
With bright knives He releaseth my soul
He maketh me to hang on hooks in high places
He converteth me to lamb cutlets
For lo, He hath great power and great hunger
When cometh the day we lowly ones
Through quiet reflection, and great dedication
Master the art of karate
Lo, we shall rise up
And then we'll make the bugger's eyes water
