Yokkyu Amai

Description: Yokkyu is very different compared to most Shinigami, despite keeping normal racial necessities - he is very different than the others in almost every aspect. First and foremost, he has long, shiny silver hair that is draped down to the end of his back, while most Shinigami have a much more normal hairstyle. His arms are very long, as well as having a beautiful set of claws on his hand. His clothes are however not very different from the rest, as he wears the typical clothing of the shinigami - black robes with a white trim. Yokkyu wears the usual Shinigami robes like most with a few extra armored pieces. To be more detailed, let's start from the top and work down. His face is sort of oval-ish, yet keeps a sort of round appearance on the sides, and comes to a narrow end at the chin. His cheek bones sort of jut out, but nothing that ranges out of what is considered the "norm". On either side of his face are 2 purple claw marks, which is paint, but appears as if a beast scratched him and infected his skin. On his forehead rests a purple crescent moon that would take up about a quarter of the space of his central forehead. His lips are a light pink color and seem to never get chapped. His teeth are all normal, aside from the canine teeth, which on both the bottom and top set are respectfully long, and deathly sharp, as if he had the teeth of a wolf. His eyes are a golden-yellow color, and his skin is a creamy pale-ish color.

Onto his torso, but this time around, we'll exclude the clothes he wears and come back to them at a later time. His chest is pale and completely bare, with muscles in most spots for a man of his build. Both of his pecks are 5.5', perfectly square, leaving a 1' gap between them. Below his pecks lie his rips, which do not jut out like most others. Yokkyu also has six 2'(squared) abs, three on the left and three on the right side of his abdominal area. Like the rest of his torse, his skin is bare and pale. His chest is protected by his armor, which is able to ensure moderate damage before busting. It should also be noted that Yokkyu gets about 52% of his height from his back.

Yokkyu's legs are normal, having both, unlike his arms. Each leg is roughly 3.5 feet long, which is typically long for legs. Both are pale like his body, yet muscular like an athlete's, giving him amazing running speeds, and even greater shunpo speeds than most. His calves are large and defined, as well. Both feet would be a size 13.5 in mens, however, other than the stated information, the lower part of his body is not unique in any other way, aside from a large scar being located in the center of his left foot, which is odd, seeing as many wouldn't typically get attacked at the foot...

His clothes, on the other hard, are a bit different. They make up most of his unique appearance. He wears a white kimono, with a large, spiked iron shoulder-piece, and a wolf pelt on his other shoulder, followed by a black steel armor plate for his chest, and a yellow and purple sash worn around his waist to secure his Zanpakutou. His clothes cover all of his body, aside from his hand and the very tips of his claws, however, to start with, we'll do this like we did his appearance - start from the top and work our way down until we reach the end of the description of his clothes. As stated, his wears a large, mainly white kimono. It covers all of his chest, goes over his shoulders and drapes down his left side (his armless side). However, on his right side, the kimono goes down, just barely passing his hand, barely exposing the tips of his claws. Towards the top left of the kimono is a white and red pattern, which has a large red spot, filled with white squares. Over his left shoulder rests a large, spiked iron piece of armor, which connects at the middle of his left shoulder plate, over his shoulder, and onto his left peck, and onto the corner of his black chest plate. On his right shoulder rests a large pelt of wolves fur, which on his backside drapes down to almost the floor and flows behind him, but on the right it only goes to about upper-mid chest level. In the center of his chest rests his black chest plate, with a gold and red trim, used for protecting him from most attacks. It can still repel a fair amount of attacks before it will break. On the back side of his left sleeve is the same pattern that Yokkyu has on his upper left neck-piece, a red splotch with a white block pattern. Towards the lower end of his chest plate is a purple and yellow sash, which is tied tightly around his waist, leaving two streamers in front, none in the back. It is used to keep Yokkyu's Zanpakutou in place, which is securely fastened on his left hip. He wears long white pants, with black & pointy shoes.

Zanpakuto: Many Faced Snake Female, or, as Yokkyu likes to call her: Okunoheb. She is very unique for a zanpakutou spirit, in both looks and attitude. Her form is that of an enormous python, a python with terrifying fangs. Her body is a sleek and shiny black color, the color of midnight, with the scales as large as a fist, which are quite reflective. The circumference of her large body is about twenty feet from the mass of her body near her head, and for every foot closer to the tail, her body loses a foot in circumference, making her length a whopping twenty feet. The fangs inside of her mouth are terrifying, as her mouth is able to open a large seven feet, easily able to engulf even a large sized male. Three of those feet are occupied by he dangerous fangs, which can easily go straight through a body she comes into contact with. Her eyes, like her scales, are the fullest of their color, though her eyes are a deep dark red, giving her overall appearance a very frightening and eerie look to it. It seems as though this snake was made up by the nightmares of all the horrid creatures in existence, shoved into the guise of a python. She does not act any less frightening and evil than her appearance.

Okunoheb is by far the most unruly and aggravating person Yokkyu has ever crossed paths with. Given she isn't a person, rather a part of Yokkyu, it seems as though she is the portion of his very personality that is the worst in manners, multiplied by 5, with the addition of evil bitch. The reason this is said is simply the way she acts toward Yokkyu. Extremely cynical, despite her obvious trust towards her master, she is always suspecting he is doing something outlandishly stupid, something that he ot himself into and can not get himself out of. In other words, something she will personally enjoy. She knows Yokkyu well enough to know that under enough stress he will get aggravated and strike out, thus feeding her the endless lust for blood she seems to always crave. In fact, on several occasions, Okunoheb wont even speak with Yokkyu unless he satisfies he blood lust with a fresh, clean and gruesome kill. She doesn't have a particular taste in what blood her manifestation bathed in, so long as it's blood and it brings moisture to her manifestation, she will relish in the "taste" and "feel".

Inner World: The inner world is a large and foggy bog. Unlike most bogs, the water is not dirty, but black in color, matching Okuno's scales perfectly. With no trees and only a moonlit, cloudless sky, this realm seems to be one from a person's worst nightmares. With no trees in sight, and no land anywhere to be found, the entire world is Okuno's domain, as when she rises from the water, she seems to be the water itself taking shape to a large, red-eyed python. Except for anything mentioned, this realm is pretty bare.

Sealed Zanpakuto: Yokkyu's Zanpakutou is a Katana fit for a king, and is beautiful down to the very last detail. Unlike most, he treasures his Zanpakutou as if it were his actual life partner, and has added little modifications to his Zanpakutou throughout his time as a Shinigami, adding gold here and there, as well as Japanese writing. The blade while in the sheath measures 32" in length, and the sheath is a beautiful dark blue color, with three japanese characters symbolising his trust, companionship and the honor of working with his Zanpakutou. About two and a half inches towards the opening of the hilt is a dark blue wrapping which is used to fasten the zanpakutou to Yokkyu's waist. In the center of the dark blue wrapping is a small circular ring which is used to hold the wrapping in blade, ensuring that the wrapping does not leave Yokku's waist.

The hilt of the blade is nothing extraordinary, though it is still as elegant as the entire Zanpakutou, with the hilt being about one and a half feet long, ensuring for a good grip, and much space to change grips when in a tight lock. The hilt is wrapped in blue wrapping, much like the exterior of the sheath, but the wrapping used on the hilt is wrapped in a diamond formation, which creates multiple diamonds throughout the length of the Zanpakutou, spanning from each end of the hilt, which on each end is ended by a small golden cap. The cap has small designs of a dragon around the perimeter of the golden caps, and is as shiny as water on a midnights' beautiful evening. The guard, like much of the sheath, has gold, which is in a small, 1-inch-in-diameter circle around the hilt, which is defined as the guard, which has engraved a tiny dragon that encircles the entire perimeter of the guard, making it seem as though the blade has its very own bite to it.

Remove the sheath from the Zanpakutou and you get the blade itself, which is a beautiful silver color, with a wave design on the blade, that can only be noticed in the darkest of nights, as when in the sunlight, the blade is too reflective to notice such variations on the blade, as Yokkyu personally keeps the blade as shiny and beautiful as it could possibly be. Like the sheath, the blade is 32" in length, and throughout the length of the blade, it is razor sharp, having the ability to cut leafs simply by touching them, cutting them as if they were absolutely nothing. This is due to the Zanpakutou's personality being very... very sharp, which is reflected upon by the sharpness of the blade. At the very end of the blade, the tip is curved slightly at an acute angle, making the tip of the blade deathly sharp, very sudden, unlike most Zanpakutou Yokkyu has noticed thus far.

Personality Traits:
Hobbies:

- Being the quiet type, Yokkyu likes to be alone and by himself, it gives him time to think by himself. He usually doesn't like to be disturbed while he is in thought, but he wouldn't particularly mind if someone were to interrupt him. He simply likes to be by himself when he thinks, as when he does, he tends to speak out loud and to himself, softly, however, he doesn't want people to know his inner and personal thoughts, so that is why it is a hobby to be alone: to think by himself.

- This sort of ties in with the first one, however it is a little different. Yokkyu enjoys to go on long walks throughout the Dangi Realm. He'll leave Soul Society and walk through the realm, basking in the cool midnight air. During this time, he often goes back to his previous hobby of thinking, however, he mainly walks to relieve himself of the prescience of others, and when he goes on a walk, this is the time he WOULD mind to be interrupted. It's not as if he'll snap at you, as his voice is always calm, but he wouldn't particularly like you, and he would view you as an annoying pest in his personal conscience.

Likes and Dislikes

Likes-

- Yokkyu's favorite place in all of Soul Society would have to be the Forest. He absolutely loves to visit that place, it brings him satisfaction galore. He enjoys spending time there because there is a multitude of dead & thriving trees, crystals of all sorts, trees that contain the occasionalsquirrel, and an entire dead forest teeming with unseen life, and if one is lucky, even an old friend!

- Unlike most Shinigami, and unlike most any sentient being, Yokkyu loves a good challenge. Being a high ranked Shinigami, he rarely gets a challenge, unless it is from a superior, which there are very few Yokkyu knows of. And whenever Yokkyu gets the chance, he will fight an opponent that is exceptionally strong compared to him, however it doesn't always have to be in strength. Yokkyu is also a very smart and talented Shinigami, knowing enough science to qualify him for that of Squad 12! - and he would accept an intellectual challenge, or possibly a historical challenge, even a location or speed challenge. Any challenge is a challenge, and any challenge is worth trying because to Yokkyu is equals fun!

Dislikes-

- Yokkyu has a strong dislike when it comes to people who refuse to see the truth. For example, if a person is fighting him, and Yokkyu had the advantage and is winning, yet the person on the other end of the battle is over there talking about how if only they can pull through, if only they could do this one thing, they'd win the battle, regardless of how impossible it seems. That is a person, to Yokkyu, who's eyes aren't capable of seeing the truth, a person who is guided by false hope and a person who should have their eyes removed and killed for the mere thought of doing such an impossible thing when it is clear they are unable.

- For racial reasons, Yokkyu has a strong dislike when it comes to a Hollows. He doesn't understand why he loathes them, however, his instincts tell him to, whether it's blind hatred or clear hatred, he hates them nonetheless. He tries to see from both sides; the Shinigami side being: 'They kill innocents mindlessly', and the hollow side, 'We have minds, we kill because me must do so to survive', and once again theirs, 'It is our duty to protect the innocent and purge the evil', and his once more, 'Who are you to declare what is good and what is evil, what is just and unjust? Who gave you permission to protect, what if it is us you should be protecting, but don't realize it due to your own ignorance'. No matter what side he looks at it from, the side of hatred is always the overpowering side.

Goals: In truth, the only goals Yokkyu has is to ensure he keeps his power within his division. He wants to ensure this Squad is under proper command for as long as he has the ability to. He also hopes to one day be able to reach a compromise with his Zanpakutou, thus convincing it to allow him Bankai, which for the given time - it will not allow him to do. Like achieving bankai, which is a way of gaining more power - Yokkyu does wish that one day his skills will be adequate enough to some day lead the Gotei in its entirety - as the Captian Commander. That goal, however, is one Yokkyu isn't too ambitious to pursue.

Fears: Yokkyu is a very cold person - thus only cold things can scare him. The only cold thing that scares him is people being colder than him, which would be moreso a surprise than a fear. However, his ultimate fear is loosing his Division and the Onmitsukido to one of lower potential then himself.

Strengths: Yokkyu's main strength is his devotion to his Division. With something to fight for - something important to him. He wants to serve the Gotei in a prominent position to all. He can not loose it, or all his years of hard work will be forfeit!

Weaknesses: His weakness is his strength. His sole devotion of his Division is, to some, a stupid devotion. He will do anything - will plunge him into most any mess to ensure he has the ability to prove he is truly worthy. One day, it could wind up being a large large mistake...

Positive Traits

* Lawful - Yokkyu is a extremely lawful person, and will stop at nothing to ensure justice is served. He believes the laws were set there to ensure the safety of the Shinigami. He will stop at nothing to ensure justice is carried out...
* Confident - Although this could count as a flaw, to Yokkyu, and for Yokkyu, it is something somewhat on the good side. He is confident in his powers and abilities, and sure that he can find some way to do what he needs to do, one way or another. He does, of course know he is not the best, but he knows for sure he's not anywhere near the worst.
* Dutiful - Like being extremely lawful, Yokkyu will stop at nothing to ensure his duties are fulfilled completely as asked. Even those who work under him, he will try all in his power to ensure they too perform their duties properly. There are two things Yokkyu doesn't mess around with: Law, and Duty.
* Respectful - Yokkyu knows when to show respect, and when to make others respect him. He knows he is mean, and he wont b mean without proper reason. He understands that the easiest way to get others to follow you lead is through respect, but knows that an iron first is the way to go sometimes as well. He tends to keep more to the respect side, however.
* Knowledgeable - Serving in the Onmitsukido for quite some time, Yokkyu i a trained assassin. Being a trained Assassin, Yokkyu has learned quite a number of useful tactics to use in combat. The most notable of those tactics is the knowledge of the Hand to Hand Martial Arts Tradition: Koshijutsu, which uses the fingers as the weapon, striking points on the body to render other parts immobile. On top of that, he knows the areas of the tendons and ligaments quite well, and will use those to his advantage as well.

Negative Traits

* Lawful - While being a good think to Yokkyu, it doesn't make it a good thing FOR Yokkyu. In performing the laws to the letter, he obviously risks danger. He could easily get too confident and overstep his bounds.
* Anger - While Yokkyu tries to remain respectful as best a he can, his temper if very short. His anger is a small wick with the match always close by. He can easily begin to boil over the smallest things and go on a large rage about respect and duties and all other things other people don't want to hear.
* Confident - While Yokkyu does know he is not the best, his confidence might be a little too high. If he thinks he can do it, he will try. And normally this wouldn't be a bad thing, but however, when applied to battle, it could easily become a bad thing. Even a fatal thing.
* Duties - Like mentioned above, Yokkyu is very serious about law and duties. With duties, he puts them above him and those around him. Being Shinigami, he knows he was made to complete a specific duty, the mission gave to him. Those around him were as well, and he will risk his life, not so much those around him's, but his own to ensure he gets as close to fulfilling his duty as shinigamily possible.
* High Self Regard - Although this seems contradictory to what is above, it's not meant in that way. He believes himself to be great, not so much battle wise, but stature wise. He believes he should be very respected, and while he gives respect, he won't take anything BUT respect from those around him. Simply because he gives respect doesn't mean he thinks others to be above him. He just knows it's the best way to go, and he expects similar things from those around him.

History:Yokkyu's eyes flashed open, as he laid where he was dead, and without a seconds thought, he jumped up, feeling his legs, back and head, noticing he had no arrows anymore, and was somehow alive. With a confused expression, his gaze turned down to his chest, where he noticed a giant chain, which had two chain circles on it, before it was at his chest. It didn't hurt him, but it was there, and he couldn't remove the chain, as he tried to force it off from his chest. Confused, he thought he was in a dream, he began to wander around, noticing his hunger and fatigue were long gone - this couldn't be a dream, it just couldn't be. Things were too great to be a dream, he FELT this, you didn't FEEL dreams, you SAW dreams, but you never felt a dream, and this was sure as shit no dream at all.
However, as sure as Yokkyu was, he couldn't have been more wrong, for his eyes flashed open once kmore, revealing the luxurious room in the Amai Family Manor. With an irritated grunt, as well as a sigh that revealed his obvious frustration, he rose from his bed and wandered down to the large kitchen of the Amai Manor. Little did he knew, he would be faced with a decision, a very important decision. Perhaps the most important decision his life has ever seen, and ever will see. He, however, had no way of knowing such a thing. He continued in his innocent ignorance, having the kitchen chefs fix him up something interesting. It was a ceation wrought of many spices with rice and duck sauce. It wa delicious, but Yokkyu was interrupted by the Third Male of the Amai Clan. Yokkyu was the hier to the clan, and did not like bing interrupted. He was very young at this time, just celebrating his 100th year of life.
His brother had a serious look on his face, and explained that their father was making all males in the family join the Shino Academy. The Amai clan had many members of the clan in the Gotei, and it was time the sons, the future of the Amai clan joined. However, would Yokkyu accept? It wasn't something he was interested in, though he had indeed thought of it before. He didn't think he had the potential to be anything good, but knew that one day he would lead the clan, and for that, like his father, he would need power. And respect. What better way to get power and respect than to be a high ranked officer in the Gotei? Yokkyu knew for a fact it wouldn't be anything easy, and nothing that would go by quickly. If he did this, he would have to devote his time to his training and to the Gotei, and less of the Amai. However, he knew he had time. His father had many years left of his life, so his duties as Hier could be put on hold for some time. Yokkyu had decided to join, and the males were to go to the Shino Academy and enroll first thing next morning.
The males did exactly that, going straight to the Shino Academy first thing in the morning. They had told their purpose, and who they were. There would be no delays. The Amai were feared greatly throughout Soul Society. They were known to be violent, though some could be kind, that is simply not what they were known for. He was, however, promised that this would be no easy task - completing the academy and all. It required ones utmost dedication to learning the arts of a Shinigami, which many surprisingly do not have. Yokkyu was of course undaunted by this fact and decided to continue on with the registration, knowing good and well exactly what lay before him. He was told he could spend up to ten years in this place, depending on how he progressed in comparison to the others. To his relief, the real work wasn't beginning any time soon, it was more or less simple classes, teaching the students exactly what the Shinigami's main enemy was... the hollows...

These were mindless creatures who were unfortunately never saved by the Zanpakutou of an honored Shinigami, Yokkyu learned. He had felt some connection to the beasts, as though he had seen them before, and as if he understood them more than most others... but it was just a feeling. The lessons in hollows continued, teaching the students the different types of hollows, and also telling them that their powers vary. Supposedly there were 4 classes of hollows - the normal hollows which usually plagued the Realm of the Living. Next up in the latter of power were the Menos Class Gillian, which resided in another dimension known as Hueco Mundo, the realm of the hollows. If a hollow were to somehow gain individuality, they would be able to consciencelessly continue up through the ranks, devouring their own kind to gain power. Yokkyu learned that they only had ONE chanc, and if they messed up, they'd revert to mindless beasts and be forced into a state of subconscience. If they however made it, they'd gain a more humanoid form and become known as an Adjuchas. Adjuchas were about Vice-Captain power, and were not something to take lightly. If the Adjuchas was born to become the next class, then they would indeed become the next class. Regardless, an Adjuchas must always feed on hollows, else they'll return to a mindless Menos. If they made it, they'd become known as a formidiable Vasto Lorde - a form of hollow that most resembles a humanoid figure, and possibly beyond Captain-Class.

Those studies took up two years of Yokkyu's time at the academy, and next began the real training. He would be presented with an ordinary sword and would learn the art of Zanjutsu - the art of weilding a sword. This sword would become his zanpakutou, a being that he had yet to connect with. He continued his studies and training sessions with the sword, entering the Academy tournaments from time to time, usually ending up in second or third among the entire Academy, due to his skills with he blade. Soon after the studies with the blade were complete, he began with the art of Hoho, which would later develop into shunpo - a shinigami's fast-movement. All shinigami must be able to perform the simplest variation of Hoho: Shunpo before they could graduate. Most students, Yokkyu included, got the hang of this pretty quickly. And Yokkyu, like the blade, was very proficient with it, however, this time, not anywhere near the best. He decided his shunpo needed a lot of work. After the studies of Hoho were complete, the studies in the Demon Art: Kido began. This was a Shinigami's main magical weapon aside from their zanakutou. They could perform a multitude of things with Kido - from making a simple light to aid you in your travels to summoning six rods of bright light to completely immobilize your opponent. All the academy students needed to do for now was to perform Bakudo 1: Sai, and Hado 1: Sho and they would make it out fine. Yokkyu, like the others, performed Kido to a satisfactory level.

The final test of the Academy was to send him far off from the protection with the Academy, and allow them to demonstrate their skills they have learned within the Academy. No leader was chosen among the group, but they would have to fend off the weakling hollows that had managed to enter the Soul Society. This is usually where Shinigami acheived their Shikai, and where the Academy would decide to place them. Cast out of the acadmemy a week after the notice of the final test, the Academy students were confident, save for a few who believed they would be at the mercy of a mindless hollow. Yokkyu was placed with a squadron of 5 other Shinigami. He quickly decided it was his duty to lead them, and grabbed their attention with a flick of his sword. He demanded they follow under him for the time being, and that they act as a stealth unit instead of one unit of brute strength, where they would be wide open. With that in mind, the academy students quickly agreed and listened to Yokkyu's orders each time a hollow neared. With particularly quick flash steps, Yokkyu and his squadron quickly decimated any hollow that came near them. However, the next challenge wasnt so easy. A group of 3 hollows had appeared and began to prove too much for the little Squadron. Yokkyu like the rest of his team were thrown about, and clawed at by the beass, until Yokkyu uttered some strange sentence, and his blade transformed to that of a whip with six snake heads. He had done it without realizing it - he had done it in a moment of great need - he had called upon his shikai. The six snake heads danced and bobbed wildly at they were flicked to and fro, , tearing the hollows to bits and pieces.
The squadron retreated back to the academy to report their progress, as well as end their test. They were all praised on their effort, especially Yokkyu which was the only one to acheive Shikai in his Squad. They all, however were placed within the Squad 2 barracks, as Yokkyu's leadership had shown their talent in stealth. Yokkyu however learned quickly that his zanpakutou hadnt returned to its sealed state, and felt as though he should find out why. He meditated for a long while, until he entered a dark domain with a coiled black python waiting for him, in striking position. After questioning it, he learned his zanakutou was a very cold and evil being who refused to be sealed where she could not taste the blood of battle. With his answer given to him, the spirit forced him out of her domain... and Yokkyu returned to his training in Squad 2, working much on his Kido and Flash Steps, as well as learning and mastering two techniques his Shikai offered him. To this day, Yokkyu as served in the Gotei unconditionally.

Shikai (Initial Release)

This is the first release that all Shinigami officers possess. Typically a Shikai is related to the weapon itself in some way.

Appearance:Okuno is magnificent whip - with six lovely snake heads on the end of the whips stem. The whip itself is coated in a lucid black substance. Like all zanpakutou, it is very durable and seemingly indestructable (but as we've seen, can in fact be broken). The stem (handle) of the whip is about six inches long, giving him enough room to comfortably hold the whip in one hand. The whip is connected to another leathery black substance that connects the stem to the part that does the damage, the whip itself, which that part is about 3 feet long. On the end of that connecting lies six 8 feet long snakes, which are as black as the python in Yokkyu's inner world. With lucid black scales, blood red eyes, a black flickering tongue, and two long and sharp venomous fangs to each snake, they are quite living indeed, giving them the opportunity to fight ALONG with Yokkyu, attacking where they please unless Yokkyu issues a mental command on exactly what to do. The snakes fangs are both fit for stabbing and shreding, allowing Yokkyu to issue the snake a command to inject venom with a bite, then tear out, leaving his oppnent with a large bleeding gash. Typically there are multiple bites with multiple gashes.

Ability: The ability of this technique is simple, yet effective. Of course, the Reiryoku output is much greater, though in shikai, it becomes a little more condensed and less free flowing, giving Yokkyu a slight enhancement to his speed. He only becomes a little faster, due to the Reiryoku becoming more dense around his legs and feet. The second and more battle-oriented ability of the shikai allows for the output of two different types of venom. The first type is a venom that numbs the opponent. Each snake on the whip has the change to inject the venom once until all others have bitten and released venom, and depending on how many snakes bit with the numbing venom, the numbing could easily turn into paralysis. Once all the numbing venom is gone from the snakes, they get a new dose of degenerative venom. This venom is by far more dangerous, allowing for the breakdown of tissue and muscle. The degenerative venom, however, only works in areas currently affected by the numbing venom. In other words, if bitten in the right arm, the degenerative venom will only degenerate your tissue and muscle on the infected area on your right arm, not on your left. Like the numbing venom, the amount of snakes that injected the venom goes hand in hand with how effective the venom will be. For example, if you're bit with one snake who has degenerative venom, you'll loose a layer of skin, most likely, exposing the skin on the second layer. If you're bit with all 6 snakes in the relatively same area, your skin and muscles will slowly decompose in that area ONLY.

First off, let me warn you that the 6 snakes thing is extremely elaborate, and going to be very difficult to satisfactorily pull off as a Shikai. Take a look at Zabimaru (which admittedly is a little over-simplified in Shikai, but sets a decent example) In Shikai it's a segmented sword whip with one head, and in Bankai it's a giant snake.

My suggestion here, to make this easier to employ (and a fuck-ton more balanced, SIX self-operated snakes makes it almost impossible to approach you, and implies free attack actions) is to make the Shikai a single snake whip (which you can feel free to make longer than 11 feet if you so desire, although there are positives and negatives to a longer whip) and save the multi-snake idea for Bankai. (Also if you wanted to crank it up to 8 snakes for the bankai, I'd totally let you. It's always awesome when characters blend with mythology, and the Yamato no Orochi is pretty big in Shinto myths.)

Ability: Serpent whip- when released, Okunoheb's blade transforms into a long, slender serpent with a will of it's own, with powerful venom glands. (for poison techniques) This snake gets 1 free action of it's own per turn to do what it wishes, at -1 strength vs resistance and -1 assault compared to it's wielder.

On a hit, the snake may either bite and yank back out, attempting to tear chunks of flesh with it, or remain latched on to serve as a superior ranged control option (similar to a Manriki, but it 'bites' better wink )

Then you use your techniques to come up with various poisons

I suppose manifesting a secondary snake while the first one is latched onto a target could be a cool Shikai technique.
