Age of Death: 30
Age of Appearance:
Actual Age:  499
Gender: Male
Current Residence: Squad 6 barracks as captain.
Weapons: Zanpakuto
Affiliation: The S.S.

Personality:One could call him almost bipolar. He could easily be the nicest person in world, or your worst nightmare. In his life, he debated polotics and the decisions of powers from different viewpoints, and had unique opinions. Because of this, he has a deep respect for those who are in power, and even deeper expectations for them. He hates the ignorance of some people arrogantly saying things that's sole purpose is to make themselves look cool, especially when they pick on a particular group.

However, he also has a very fun side. He likes to joke around during times of even serious events to lighten the mood, even if he himself is feeling depressed. He has a kind of feeling of responsibility, of duty towards others around him. He can almost feel the pain one is experiancing when he sees a wound, and he can almost feel the stress of someones work when he sees the labor and results. He likes to just goof around to help get rid of the pain. He therefore likes to hang around people just to get some laughs, even if he's the only one laughing.

That is not to say that he doesn't know where to stop. He knows fully well what things shouldn't be laughed at, and he can easly shift to a serious mood in an instant if something goes where it shouldn't, and he's very stern about it. In reality, he simply may not want to have to feel the pain of stress that simply isn't necesarry, so he avoids it with care.
Physical Appearance: A medium build man, he wears a dark green kimono covored by his his captain's uniform, finally he wears a black overcoat without the wearing the sleeves. It just hangs on his shoulders. White skin, green-brown eyes and is about 6'5"


His hair is short and black, a buzzcut style usually 3/4 in. long. His eyes are a mix between green and brown. He seems to smile alot, seeming happy, but he also seems sad when you look at him for a long time. He has his hands in his pockets alot, that or just out walking.

History: Cerus was a man born into a family full of strife, but he considered himself extremely lucky. Out of all the families of his grand parents, his was the only one to be in a stable state of finfance. His father wasn't the best, hypocritical, but his discipline taught him to respect those who have the higher jobs, they have it harder than you think. That you should never say you're bored, you have all the freedome in the world when you're young.

At first it was hard for him to socialize, but has he grew up in his life, he begain taking interests in polotics. He was republican, but tried to see things both ways. He had his views, and it allowed him to talk with others in schools and events, even on the web. Whenever he clashed in debates, he would always only talk about what he knew, whild one could say this is cowardice and hypocrisy, he did his research when he needed to, so he was a very well learned person in polotics, government, and his keen interest in history helped him as well.

During his 30th year, he was in a debate. He recieved a death threat, he disregarded it as a childish attempt to get attention, and told him to grow up. He looked out his window to find a man looking in. Of course, his neighbors were nice, just saying hi. He waved and the man left. The day after the same man appeared with a handgun and shot Cerus in the chest. He already had pectus excavatum, a condition where the rib cage is pressed inside closer to the lungs and heart. When the bullet enter his chest, it broke a rib and threw it into a lung, puncturing it.

In his last moments hooked up to a machine, he hated the world of lies, then eventually just considered it all a blur, a dull solitude of lies that would never be erased becuase people wanted it so badly, they were desperate for it. As his last request, he wanted a single white rose to hold. He had always liked their creamy looks and texture, he had planned on tending to them when he grew up, of course this was all that his garden was going to be, but he cherished it. His will expaned into a silence of thought, a pondering of the questions of god, man, and creation. What was there to the personality of a creator, is everyone a god, or is simply everything mortal? His thoughts carried him through an existence to where he became entrenched in the life of Rukon. After he was sent by a soul reaper, it was almost like a dreamlike state, he relaxed, and took hold of himself, he almost welcomed this new world with open arms, like he awaited it.

After living in Rukon, he decided to be a shinigami for the sake of truly understanding the responsibility of the soldiers he remembered about back in his life, he very much looked foward to the training, as he was wanting to do this work, he wanted to continue his work to debate, even if it was through a sword. He joined the academy after he remembered this with the nostalgic feeling that he tried to keep alive.

At first, he was actually pretty good, he had always had an obsession with sword fighting as a child, and could fighting with one hand, and this helped him get used to the training in an easier motion. Also, during his kido training, he liked two in particular that he would remember and be most prone to use. Pale lightning for it's resemblence of a flower and it's quickness, along with Seki for the same reason. The shot of red fire because he was able to imbue his sword with it's flame and unleash it with a stroke of his sword.

As his abilities grew, he still lacked his shikai, so he reached into his pocket to pull out the white rose his family had given him when he died, and it triggered something. The rose had wilted, but the zanpakuto grew vibrant, and a bird of a cream white color enveloped him, soothing his aches, and whispered it's name to him. "Inlustrare-rosa" (Enlightening Rose)
His sword became a conductor's baton, like in a music concert. His desire to tend to a garden of roses had been realized with his will to try to find the truth through debate, and his passion for music. After this he tried kyakko, and found that he could more or less position the mirror with his sword by pointing it at one of the petals the zanpakuto created. He now works with the 6th squad due to the trees that grow in the vicinity, he's very fond of them, though of course he doesn't know why Byakuya had them.

In time his abilitys with kido grew amazingly high, his time spent eventually led to him spending his time in kido corps, he almost a prodigy, he could learn kido with a special style, and with his zanpakuto, he could manipulate the use of any kido, he almost surpassed the tutors on the first year in the kido taught in the lesson.
It was later considered he stay with the kido corps for his affinity, but he also had an amazing sense of logic and skill in combat by combining kido with his weapon to form posiblities no one else could create. Such as a beam sword by combining raging light fang with his shikai, or manipulating the white rose petals to form a cage using byakurai or ridenki, or even more kido.
After the rebellion, he had already made himself known to the others for his abilites and having obtained bankai, and even took the Lieutennant seat from renji after getting tutoring for how to master it. 
After the rebellion, he challanged everyone in the squad to challenge him to otherwise prove him an improper candidate for the new captain, no one stood a chance, so he is now the new captain of squad 6. Shinkai came wwell for him after this, as he was able to spend alot of his time in his inner world, he did it alot before anyway, so it was easy to connect with his zanpakuto and attain it, thought it's not mastered.
