Nicknames: Ria, Usti Naquisi (Little Star), Naquisi
Age: Over 600, appears to be mid-twenties. When she stays in the cities for too long she can appear older, earlier forties at the oldest.
Birthday: April 24th (adopted birthday)
Height: 180 cm (5'9")
Weight: 65 kg (143 lbs.)
Affiliation: Western Soul Society, Seireitei
Occupation: Shinigami, free-lance
Partner: Danawa (while in the W.S.S.), Kirei and Ichigo (and Grimmjow kinda, while at the Seireitei)
Base of Operations: W.S.S., Seireitei, Karakura
Relatives: Father (Qaletaqa), mother (Onatah), 3 older brothers (from oldest to youngest Ren, Niyol, and Shiriki). She has 1 older sister, Aiyana, and 2 younger sisters (from oldest to youngest Cha'risa, Misae). Sauria and Ren are the only two children that are actually Qaletaqa's and Onatah's.
Education: She never officially went to a school in the World of the Living, but she is well educated by a former teacher who is a friend of her father's. She does well in English and Science, but not so well in Math.
Appearance: She has long, wavy dark brown with a side part on the left side and long bangs that sweep to the side. Her eyes are almond shaped and a chocolate brown color that lighten up to an amber color whenever she's aroused, surprised, or happy. Sauria has light brown skin, and is well over five feet tall. She has a toned body, and has a scar over her heart that can be construed as being star-like in shape.
Sauria's old outfit consisted of navy blue sleeveless top with a fringed brown leather band around the top which gave it a sweet-heart neckline, a navy blue skirt that she usually wore a pair of black shorts under, a brown leather belt with a large plain gold oval belt buckle, dyed blue leather arm braces with brown leather fringe, light tan boots and navy blue leg warmers. After some time working for the Seireitei, she finally gave in to Yamamoto's demands and adopted an eastern shinigami uniform, but she modified it to her liking.
Now, the top has shorter sleeves which reach her elbows, and it isn't wrapped around her body (ergo left side over right), but put on more like a coat, and it isn't tucked into the pants. Normally she bandages her chest, but sometimes doesn't bother. A large navy blue sash keeps the top in place, with straps that hold her sheaths. She wears regular hakama pants with a white sash, and kept her boots, not liking the traditional sandals they had given her as she tripped in them for a third time. The only other modification are her fingerless white gloves which start at her elbows and stop at a point just past the first knuckle of her middle finger. Golden tassels are attached near the elbow end of the gloves.
She still wears her feather earrings regularly, along with her choker.
Personality: Sauria has a feisty personality that she often tries to temper down. She is quick to anger when people threaten her or others around her, but she's also quick to try and reign in her temper. It's essential that she keeps in balance mentally and emotionally, because if she's not her abilities become unstable and she is unable to wield Awohali effectively, which could lead to her losing in battle.
She's fiercely loyal, almost to a fault, putting others before herself in most things, and has a very motherly demeanor. She's very affectionate towards children and animals, and doesn't care much for the cities of the Human World. She's very family oriented, and misses her family back in the Western Soul Society a great deal while she resides in the Seireitei. Because of this she tends to 'adopt' the people around her in a familial sense, caring for them like brothers and sisters and treating them as such.
Her emotions are usually always 'strong', there is no middle ground. If she's happy, then she's practically glowing, and if she's mad then she can be rather violent, but it doesn't mean she's bi-polar, as she doesn't have irrational mood swings. Her libido is no exception, and Sauria can be a very sexual person.
She isn't bashful or shy, but flushes at unexpected compliments in pleasure. She can be a little vain at times, and loves it when people compliment her.
History: Sauria is the daughter of a Native American chief in the Western Soul Society. Due to her unique reiatsu passed down to her by her mother, which could encourage plants to grow, Earth Mother* approached her with an opportunity to have a link to her power. After surviving the test, which cost the life of her best friend, she earned the power of Nature. She gained influence with animals, plants, and the ability to manipulate the earth itself (think like an earth bender). She also inherited incredible physical strength, far above the average, and an ability to heal people much faster than through the use of regular kido. However, because of the abnormal power within her, her body is slowly breaking down then regenerating again, and she's in constant pain as her nerves are affected by it the most.
Because of her success with Earth Mother's test, she's renowned among her people, as few get the chance to earn a contract with a Great Spirit, let alone survive them. She then began
clinging, for a lack of a better word, more to those close to her in fear that she might lose them too. She grew closer to Danawa, and eventually became involved with him. They turned out to be better friends than lovers, but they still hooked up from time to time.
A lot of the rest of her history is spoilers, so that's all you get.
Powers & Abilities:
- Strength: Her own unique physical strength. When she uses it in combination with her hand to hand abilities it's incredibly destructive and often catches opponents off-guard.
- Intellect: She's quick to analyze a situation and come up with a strategy during battles.
- Hakuda/Agility: Sauria is well trained in Capoeira, a dance like Brazilian fighting style, along with aikido. The Capoeira training keeps her flexible and very agile.
- Endurance: Sauria can take a beating, and keep on going. She's used to pain, so it doesn't bother her very much.
- Spiritual Power: As she has had time to develop her power, she has captain level reiatsu.
- Speed: Sauria's never been very fast, and this is always a problem for her in fights against quicker opponents.
- Strength: Her strength is also a weakness. Her body can't handle the pressure caused when she exerts her unnatural strength, and regularly muscles will tear, and bones will crack or break if she uses it for extended periods of time.
- Temper: When she loses her cool in a fight, her abilities suffer. She becomes reckless and less calculating.
- Kido: Sauria always preferred physical combat, so she never really practiced spells, or kido. She's just barely average in this department.
- Zanjutsu: Sauria is good with her weapons, but just good. She can hold her own against people of average skill in this department but would have trouble with a master or expert.
Fighting Style: Sauria's fighting style is a very graceful and fluid one, she learned to roll with the punches and keep on going. She prefers fights that end quickly as opposed to fights that drag on because of the damage she deals to herself during combat can take awhile to recover from.
Shikai Name: Awohali (Eagle)
Bankai Name: Galv'lati Awohali (Heavens Eagle)
Galv'lati Awohali (Heavens Eagle): In his sealed form he takes the form of a long knife with a carved handle. Originally she only had one blade, but after her contract was sealed with Em (E.M., Earth Mother), Em chose a duplicate blade to be the vessel for her own abilities. Sauria usually only uses the second blade for Awohali, as if he was a double zanpakutou.
Shikai: Awohali's shikai command is Agaliha, Awohali (Shine, Awohali). When she says this she puts the two hilts of her swords together and twirls them around. As she does so they meld to become a double bladed staff. Its coloring is unique, as in it reflects the night sky, or nebulae within it. One end has a much more fluid looking blade, which is the end reserved for the heat of the stars that are birthed within nebulae, while the other blade is a little more angular. That end deals with the intense coldness of space.
Shikai Special Ability: Her shikai has two different special abilities.
When she decides to use the heat of stars in a battle, the blade becomes superheated, burning everything it touches except for her, and she can shoot concentrated blasts of this extreme heat at her opponents. The blasts start off small and about the regular temperature of fire, increasing in size and heat the longer she uses it.
On the other hand, if she chooses to use the coldness of space, the blade becomes incredibly cold, enough to instantly freeze whatever comes into contact. She can summon comets instead of stars, or compact balls of ice surrounded by 'cold energy'. The comets start off the temperature water freezes at, and are about the size of a golf ball. They gradually get colder and larger as time goes on.
She can only choose one at a time, and can't use both at the same time. And once she chooses one, she's stuck with it for a full month. Once the month is up she can either stick with what she's been using or switch.
Bankai: The release for bankai is Agaliha ale gasakahigesodi hia ulasigvi, Galv'lati Awohali (Shine and lighten the darkness, Heavens Eagle). Upon release of bankai, Awohali shatters, and black smoke surrounds Sauria and her opponent(s). When it's through, it appears as if everyone inside has been transported to space. On the outside, it looks like a large, shimmering oval resembling a nebula.
Bankai Special Ability: Sauria's bankai allows her to use the hot and cold techniques of her shikai at the same time. She uses her hands to direct attacks instead of the staff, and the stars increase in heat and size much more quickly. They still start off small, and they're actual stars as opposed to concentrated reiatsu. She can't use comets, but the temperature of the room gradually decreases as time goes on. It is very hard to escape, the easiest way being to defeat Sauria.
Galv'lati Awohali (Spirit Information):
Appearance: In his regular form, Awohali is a giant nebula in the shape of an eagle. He has two yellow stars for eyes, and is mind bogglingly massive, having a wingspan of over 1,000 light years and standing at 500 light years tall. He usually resorts to a human appearance when speaking with Sauria, because it's much easier to communicate with her that way.
In his human form Awohali is tall, standing at 7'6", with broad shoulders and angular features. He's muscular, but it's not easy to see that because his skin is pitch black, and is dotted with stars and galaxies, representing the night sky. His eyes are completely yellow and they glow brightly, so it's hard to look him in the eye. His hair is the same substance as his original form, and is long, reaching the middle of his back.
He wears loose pants that are held on by a gold sash, and at the ends are wrapped by silver. He wears no shoes.
His adornments are a multitude of celestial-looking feathers in his hair, a hooded cape that's a deep blue with a silver clasp in the shape of an eagle, and silver arm braces with golden stars on them. When he takes the cape off its revealed that he has massive wings, with feathers like the ones in his hair.
Personality: Awohali is a very kind and nurturing zanpakutou, although he has his moments of cruelty, usually when dealing with people that hurt his master. He's full of energy and can be child-like in his excitement to do things he loves. Towards others he is very charming and polite, and he loves to play with kids.
He's also a professional ladies' man, being able to pick up a beautiful woman easily despite his rather odd outward appearance.
Relationship with Wielder: Towards Sauria, Awohali is very affectionate, calling her his Usti Naquisi, or his 'Little Star'. He's also a little immature, teasing her from time to time. He's there for her when she needs it, and even when she doesn't.
Inner World: There are two parts to Sauria's soul world. The ground, or the earth, that Em created after the contract was sealed so she could reside there. The landscape changes, a forest one day, a desert the next, but one feature never changes, and that's the large stone spires that stretch up through the clouds that separate Em and Awohali's worlds. Above the clouds it is simply space, and all one would see is Awohali if he is in his nebula form. If he isn't, then you can see many stars and far off galaxies.
Spirit: Earth Mother (or Em)
Spirit Type: She's the spirit that deals with the Earth (the earth itself, plants, and animals on a lesser level)
Spirit Level (Greater Spirit, Lesser Spirit, etc): Greater Spirit
Contract Type (extended life, wealth, power, fame, etc): Sauria's contract with the Earth Mother was a power contract. In exchange for passing two tests, Sauria gained the ability to manipulate the Earth's crust and a lesser ability to manipulate plants. As an added bonus, she can heal people without the use of kido, instead using the energy of the Earth Mother. When she does this, she starts to become one with the Earth itself. Her internal organs start to harden and green creeps into her eyes. The longer she heals someone using this technique, the more she becomes an Earth elemental. This will wear off eventually, depending upon how long she used it. However, the more she uses it, the less the side effects wear off. As already mentioned, she has increased physical strength, and enhanced senses. She can't speak to animals or understand if they say anything, but she can get a sense of what they try to convey, and has an unspoken understanding with them. Power contracts are one of the more dangerous ones to get, as you are in a sense, gaining something precious. So, the Earth Mother required something precious be taken from Sauria, which turned out to be the life of her best friend. Sauria's soul is now bound to the Earth Mother's as well, meaning that if Sauria dies, the Earth Mother will absorb her soul, pulling her out of the cycle of rebirth forever. Other side effects from using the Earth Mother's powers have already been stated.
Spirit Appearance: Em's appearance is always changing. One second she might have antlers and scales and a beak, the next she might have a crest and a muzzle and amphibious skin.
- Sauria isn't a traditional Native American name, and it doesn't mean anything like 'Beautiful' or 'Lovely'. It's a Latin word that means 'true lizards' and is derived from the Greek word sauros, or 'lizard'.
- Sauria's favorite food is chocolate, hands down.
- Despite her attitude towards cities, Sauria loves the internet. She thinks it's the best thing the humans have ever invented. Well
second best. Chocolate still comes first.
- Her favorite animal is a tie between the wolf and the tiger
- She loves reading, and is a very fast one. She can read 2 or 3 books in one day if she's not interrupted.
- Sauria loves telling stories and writing them, but she can't ever seem to finish them
- "Did somebody say chocolate? Count me in."
- "Oh yeah? Let's see how cocky you are when my blade is in your throat."
- "Aw, you're so cute when you blush."
- "Aww yeah, all the things baby!"
- "I swear by the gods if you lay a hand on them I'll rip you apart!"
- "Ooo, the things I'd do to you are illegal in 20 states
- "No, I will not do the 'Rain Dance' for you. Now get the hell away from me."
