Night Kuchiki Posted November 26, 2022 Report Share Posted November 26, 2022 Nights life as a spiritually gifted started actually at a young age. Her parents were both military, retired before their lives were cut short by a Hollow. Her Dad was Japanese American, her mom European American. The two had met during the tenure in the military and married while in the service. After the initial contract was up her mom retired but her dad stayed in the military while her mom became a stay at home mother. This lead to much of Nights childhood with her family on the move. From Fort to Fort, station to station. The constant moving around never really gave her chance to make friends, but she considered her mom a friend, as much as a mother. She even as a kid could see spirits, both those of nature, and those of human nature. Her mom once stopped her from interacting with a young dragon realizing her daughter had inherited the families spiritual gift, she began to instruct her daughter in the ways of magic and sorcery. This included a unique concept that her mom passed down of Ouroboros. The tail devouring dragon, a concept of balance, cosmic harmony, eternity, and even life and death. The lessons took up the space she would have had for friends, if they didnt move around so often. Things changed though when she was a teenager. Her grandma, her dads mom had been hospitalized. This lead to her dad retiring from the military finally and moving the family to Karakura Japan, to be closer and to be able to take care of Grandma. This was a bit of an odd time for the young girl as she had never expected to end up not only moving for the last time and settling down, but let alone to end up living in Japan. She had visited her Grandma a few times before, for things like holidays and such, but this was different. She was more frail and the hospital never felt comfortable. It was often a hot bed for spirits due to the deaths from illness, or fatal injuries. Honestly she had always felt better around nature spirits than human spirits, and those with unpleasant deaths tended to be more riled up. Actually to be fair much of Karakura was a hot bed of spirit activity but Night would do a decent job keeping to herself as her mom had taught her not to give to much attention to spirits. They would hopefully be helped by an agent of the after life though her mom had never explained who these agents were. It was during one of the times she had been visiting her Grandma in the hospital she had met her first Shinigami, Malaki Kyoraku. If only she had known back then what she knew now and just how far things would spiral out of control from this encounter, but how could she? Malakai taught her about Shinigami and their role in the world, and even what Hollows were. So many times had her thoughts gone back to that first meeting since finding out everything Malakai had done, and would do. If she had only heeded her mothers advice and left the spirit world alone, maybe things could have been different? One of the positives of finally living in a place and not moving away was she finally made a friend. Tokio Sakuraba, he had caught her once talking to a more peaceful human spirit. At first she had feared the red haired boy would find her crazy but instead it turned out he was spiritually gifted as well. Tokio as it turned out was a Quincy, though his family were not like traditional Quincy. Their clan after the genocide began looking for ways to keep their techniques, but tweak them enough not to destroy a soul, as not to incur the wrath of the Shinigami ever again. This though had apparently lead to his family being exiled by the remaining Quincy and were considered a tarnish on the Quincy name. With both Malakai and Tokio she ended up on a few adventures more thrilling than any normal highschool student would have had. Her Grandma ended up passing a year after her family had moved to Japan but they remained after as a way for her, and her dad to remain close to grandma in spirit, and for dad to get closer to his roots. Honestly all things considered before her death, times were good, but all good things came to an end. Returning to her families apartment one night after hanging out with Tokio when she was only 16, was when her human life came to an end. Her feet squished in a liquid as she entered the living room turning on the lights only to her horror, the liquid was blood. Her parents bodies were in pieces, their spirits no were to be seen of felt, only a powerful Hollow looming by an open window. Tears sprang to her eyes first and then rage filled her. Spell after spell, she slung at the Hollow. The hollow however shrugged each one off with ease. Eventually it tore her apart as well. Her spirit stood before her own body, in shock and horror. The hollow slashed her soul knocking it aside leaving a deep gash in her chest, but before it could devour her Malakai came swooping in to save her. Though as she would later come to find out, Malakai had been the one to send the Hollow to her apartment and had let it kill and eat her parents, and intervened to make himself look like her savoir. He dispatched the Hollow with great ease and performed her Konso. Promising he would find her and help her become a Shinigami, because he was sure she would be a great one. Thus did her human life come to an end, and her life in the Soul Society would begin. Unaware of what would come, or the fact the now dead hollow had infected her soul and just were that would lead her down the path of Fate. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
