Appearance: Aloisius Owain, the only wielder of the Dark-Spirit Zanpakuto, Nemutte Iru Sunahime, was born in the violent, crime-infested District 80 in the Rukongai. A son of unknown Runkongai parents who left him on the dangerous streets to fend for himself. As a young child, old enough to fend for himself. Concerns over clean water, keeping a patched roof, and hiding from the parasitic gangs that infested the area also how would he be able to feed himself. He had begun showing signs of high spiritual power that kept him company and growling stomach pains during the nights.
Aloisius stands close to the average height of six feet when he wears the sandals that make him seem quite a bit taller than he is. His muscle structure, while toned and well defined for his size, no hair is found on his form; there is no fat to be found anywhere. Tan skin marked lightly with random scars accept for his neck that wraps the back of his neck and stops evenly near the front of his neck. He wears a skin tight black material underneath his black kosode and black tekko that covers his hands. A black hakama, he wears his haori wrapped around his waist. He also wears white tabi and female getta. Mako blue eyes are colored so vividly and abnormally that is the most memorable. His current cut is messy bangs and silver hair that is pulled to the left side of his head. Although his ears can be only seen if his hair is tucked behind them.
Personality: Many find his demeanor and appearance rather unsettling making people around him nervous or angry due to how fake his personality is. He is fully aware of the effect he has on others and is an excellent manipulator, also an accomplished speaker. He is logical, analytic and is always two steps before others having no issue to adapt to any new environment, he can see the world divided into numbers and patterns that help him solve problems quickly. He can sometimes fall back on logic more than emotion sometimes which makes him seem apathetic towards sensitive or personal issues. He’s also brutally honest, which gets him into additional trouble when he feels like speaking his mind. Aloisius fake personality comes from reading different emotions in books and training in human reaction from Masaaki Shido. All other emotion is not only difficult for him to express, he is publicly known as lazy, acting if he has a terrible memory. Sleep deprivation is a side effect of his zanpakuto, it took a lot of patience to teach human emotion, and relations by Masaaki. It takes him months to remember anyone names or he will end up giving a nickname in place. To keep up this personality he made for himself, he pushes any documents or files turn in late onto his lieutenant. He refuses any job or mission he dislikes Bishop will give him, causing to get into arguments with the man.
As a child after activating Zanpakuto, sleep deprivation was a side effect and his mood change greatly. He was negative, irritable, angry, and hostile. He fought anyone due to reacting negatively when something doesn’t go well for him. His true personality is kept hidden and secretive even in battle but publicly he acts like he is completely useless almost like he is weak. It irritates the other captains.
History: Aloisius Owain was born into the violent, crime-infested District 80 in the Rukongai. A son of unknown Runkongai parents who left him on the dangerous streets to fend for himself. As a young child, old enough to fend for himself. Concerns over clean water, keeping a patched roof, and hiding from the parasitic gangs that infested the area also how would he be able to feed himself. He had begun showing signs of high spiritual power that kept him company and hushing growling stomach pains during the nights.
As he aged a bit, he was welcome into a street gang of children, there was ten in all, he felt like he could be part of a family. The food was ration between the ten of them, a cup or two of water and a stale chunk of bread. In a short week of joining the child gang, the children were murder by a rival gang. Aloisius was out looking for food when this happen. On his way back, with at least a piece of stale bread, and when he walked into the shack to see the bodies. The scene colored his life from that day. In that situation brought on the activation of his zanpakuto, the voice he has been hearing for months took away his ability to sleep without any warning. Sleep deprivation was a side effect and his mood change greatly. He was negative, irritable, angry, and hostile. He fought anyone due to reacting negatively when something doesn’t go well for him. The loss of sleep started to affect his ability to come to reason, taking on numerous opponents. He would pick fights or join underground fight clubs to be able to eat. To tame that need to kill, he would be known to leave his opponents for dead or leave them on the brink of death. He was agitated all the time. All the killings and all the fighting, gotten the attention of the head captain. Aloisius challenge the head captain without any reason, he was defeated by a wound to his neck that wraps the back of his neck. He would end up in the Maggot's Nest for many years for attacking the Head Captain.
Bishop in his head gotten the idea to bring Aloisius with him after much protest from Integra, his lieutenant, once an idea pop in his head there was no stopping him. Bishop ignore the rules of throwing Aloisius in the Maggot's Nest, he had no problem making Central 46 see to his reason. Integra came up with a second suggestion of taking him to the Shido clan, their leader Masaaki Shido would be the one to teach Aloisius. It was two weeks before Bishop took Aloisius to the Shido clan, waiting for him to calm down and clean himself properly. It looked like Bishop drop Aloisius off on someone, making him someone else problem, which happen. Masaaki Shido teaches Aloisius reading, writing, human emotion, and relations. He was very teacher like and quite for the first meeting. He was welcome into the Shido clan and was given a room to stay. He developed a small crush on Masaaki’s sister due to the generosity and kindness between them, she gave him the sandals he is wearing now, almost like an acceptance into the family. As the years went by, Masaaki felt Aloisius was ready to take the entrance exam by pushing him to take it, in Aloisius mind is to take the exam so Masaaki would stop nagging him; he took it and passed. A small accident happened one day before Aloisius left for the Academy. Masaaki and Aloisius were on a walk outside of the Shido clan’s walls, when a shinigami who did not like Aloisius, decided to attack him. Masaaki gets in the way between Aloisius and the blade to protect him.
It was only after joining the ranks of the Gotei 13 and excelling in Zanjustu he was thrown into only a short amount of peace, he was perfect for the ranks of the 11th Division due to his unique fighting style, one that is almost as suicidal as it is effective. He often is held up by scholars who wanted to studied the spiritual power, abilities, and history of his zanpakuto. The fearsome blade that had a dark reputation that goes back to its first wielder. Aloisius social awkwardness tends to get people angry, because he often speaks without considering his words and their effects on people. This was due to his inability to realize the difference between a rude statement and a true statement. He made people hate him more than trying to learn how to make friends, always keeping an instructional book in his hands. Within a few short months, the Seireitei was thrown into chaos, he proves himself against a race of corrupted creatures that looked like mutation wolves or dog like creature made of shadows. Aloisius took on the leadership role when the Captain of the 11th Division was killed. Towards the end of the war, the 11th Division lost half of its barracks and officers or they were missing. The strangest part was the bodies were missing different parts like organs, eyes, and limbs. Aloisius was promoted Captain of the 9th Division.

- His favorite snack to eat is strawberries and bocchan dango, mitarashi dango.
- Likes to make ridiculous or funny nicknames for people.

Zanjutsu Master: Developed skills on the crime- ridden streets of the Rukongai, where he no choice but to defend himself as best he could to survive. His suicidal method of combat of fearless maneuvers that defy the traditional logic and skills with a zanpakuto makes him a threating combatant. Publicly he is completely useless and only uses the academy taught complicated techniques.
Hakuda Expert: Rarely observed performing hand-to-hand combat, he prefers to use of his zanpakuto over hand-to-hand. Aloisius brutal strength and straightforward nature makes him incredibly dangerous even when disarmed, he doesn’t care to employ to what was taught to him in the academy either though it is what he used to fake a lot of things; keeping his usualness nature. He closes gaps as quickly as possible and strikes his enemies into unconsciousness with repetitious and powerful strikes. Each one of his attacks bears enough strength to crater holes into steel walls. He is no master of hand-to-hand combat, and the flaws in his style are exploitable to those who know how to handle themselves.
Vast Spiritual Power:
Tactician & Strategist:
Nemutte Iru SunaHime
Sealed form: The rumors of each year bring with it a flood of therories that need to be confirmed or proven wrong. It is said by a historian that is a pair to Hiedra Bara zanpakuto Seikatsu- Gakari, being a god type. She has immense absorption properties, taking all from victim, life force, period of life, feelings, mind. leaving the body "empty" in the end. Mostly those who touch his zanpakuto that are not him, Nemutte Iru Sunahime will begin to absorb that person who took her in hands even in sealed form. The fearsome blade takes form of a black shirasaya that is unusual long, it is kept in pristine condition. The gleaning midnight black blade is sharp as deadly, the blade is kept magnificently excellent condition, it has surprising little wear. Aloisius massive spiritual consistently fills in and mends the gashes and breaks in the weapon during the day. once it is dark out then the darker it is the stronger his zanpakuto becomes. A quick application of spiritual energy around the blade of the sword can vaporize any matter and make it pristine in a matter of moments. The handle of the zanpakuto matches the rest of the sword, the middle of the zanpakuto is wrapped in bandages.
Zanpkauto spirit and world: Aloisius inner world sits under a midnight pitch black sky with no stars in site that covers the entire inner world, there's nothing for eternity. Small, crumbling pillars are the only place he could stand, there’s no ground, no trees. Floating Japanese lanterns are seen everywhere since it was the only light source, an open small Japanese house sits on a large pillar that seem to be frozen in time. The lanterns float wherever they go, there is always three lanterns inside the open Japanese house. Nemutte Iru Sunahime resides inside the building, patiently waiting for those who enters.
Nemutte Iru Sunahime takes form of a human that wears a headdress of black wings where her eyes should be, the eyes in the wings are her vision. The eyes on the wings glow an eerie yellow. She is beautiful as deadly, with deadly pale skin and long black hair with a purple hue to it also her upper lip is black. She wears a kimono that are colored in black and mostly with purple hues.
The first impression someone normally has upon seeing Nemutte Iru Sunahime is that she is a malevolent spirit full of hate and anger. Though she does indeed appear to be evil, she is the complete opposite. Mostly relaxed and spends most of her time laid out on the floor of the Japanese house smoking a pipe. Others are easily shocked with amazement after seeing the calm state of mind that she has. She is fond of playing Shamisen in her free time besides smoking a pipe, and frequently drinks sake. She has a sense of aesthetics for beauty, and can be abrasive and mean towards him. Nemutte Iru Sunahime views battle as a type of game.
Shikai Design: Aloisius lets out a large brust of reiatsu out as he stares at his opponent and then says “Hitonomi, Nemutte Iru Sunahime.” The Zanpakuto dose a quick, bright black flash that can vaporize any material around the sword after he says the command, the ground around the sword turns into a black material that looked like sand. It slowly started to sallow the sword pulling into the ground with it. There are no exotic movements or anything special done to release Nemutte Iru Sunahime giving off the impression that he hasn’t released his Zanpakuto. An increase in strength is the first noticeable change, able to cut through strong durable objects.
Shikai Ability: The blade separates into a thousand tiny, slender blade fragments of little black grains of sand, which fly away from the hilt, leaving nothing of the sword left. While the blades are supposedly too small to be seen normally. Aloisius can control the blade fragments of black sand, allowing him to shred opponents at a distance and break through almost any defense. He can also turn the sand into a shape of any weapon to use, the sand also has immense absorption properties. Aloisius can suck all the moisture out of any object, living or non-living, by touching it with the black sand. This ability allows him to destroy his surroundings, killing and macerating any biological substances via dehydration.
Sandomansunō (サンドマンスノー sandman snow): As Aloisius raises his hands; numerous tiny, black spheres of sand start to flow around him. These spheres are scattered outwards and fall towards the ground like snow. Anyone that encounters the spheres will be enveloped by them and instantly killed. This can have a second ability of making a target fall into a deep sleep if Aloisius wills it based on the color of the sphere.
Sando man ni hairu (サンドマンに入る enter sand man): Aloisius raises his hand and materializes the same numerous tiny, black spheres that form snow. By clenching his hand, the tiny spheres merge into a larger black mass, causing surrounding plants to wither and die and living people will fall asleep and slowly wither into a husk.
Sabaku no te (砂漠の手 Desert hand): Aloisius forms a small cloud of black sand around his hand into a loose blade of fast-moving sand swings his arm at an oncoming opponent. Anything hit by that trail is instantly robbed of all moisture because of round li 's dehydration ability. Loose sand can also cause sleep to anyone that inhales it
Sandomantatchi (サンドマンタッチ sandman touch) Aloisius grabs someone with his hand, then slowly or quickly drains the moisture from them with his dehydration ability. This leaves them in a withered and seemingly fleshless state. The time Aloisius hold the person can make the person pass out or die a husk.
Yume no fīrudo (夢のフィールド field of dreams): Aloisius places his sand on the ground and in the air making anyone in the aura to drift slowly into a deep slumber the closer they reach Aloisius, the closer they reach him the more like Aloisius can add the use of his dehydration ability to dry out a huge area around him, turning it into a black color desert wasteland. When he does this, it also can cause the area around him to crumble and cave in, causing unfortunate foes to fall to their deaths.
