The Gotei 13 - Are They Enough?\nWith a Court Guard Squad of immense power, how can the Gotei 13 ever face defeat? Will this immense power be their own undoing? Will they continue to be enough to protect the Soul Society along with the human world? And keep all souls safe from the defeat of “The Hollows”? Or will they become a threat to themselves?\n\nGotei 13 Captain's List:\n\nLet’s begin with Rukia Kuchiki’s Zanpakuto “Sodeno Shirayuki”. Also known as “Sleeves of White Snow”. A Bankai that releases deadly sheets of ice. Which gives her freezing abilities that she strategically pairs with Kido combat. One would think Rukia is unstoppable, but she requires more time to fully master her power. Which often results in Rukia needing assistance from her comrades during battle to achieve victory.\n\nMayuri Kurotsuchi’s “Ashisogi Jiso”. A Bankai, that spawns a caterpillar-like creature. This creature has tiny legs that appear harmless. But in fact, are blades that cause fatal consequences. As if this alone was not enough, this creature expels venom and can poison an enemy with its breath. Although, Mayuri expresses sadistic behavior which often makes his comrades skeptical in regard to his mental state.Kenpachi Zaraki’s Zanpakuto and Bankai are so powerful they remain unknown.\n\nKenpachi, ruled the strongest Shinigami. Strikes his enemy with raw power at a max level. One would believe Kenpachi is invincible. But his downfall is that operates without direction that is supported by his bullheaded thought process.\n\nToshiro Hitsugaya’s Zanpakuto “Hyorin Maru”. Also known as “Ice Dragon”. A Bankai that releases a dynamic Dragon of Ice. This gives one the notion that Toshiro remains untouchable at such a young age. But the fact that Toshiro is such a young captain, he often leaves the result of poor decisions\nKensei Muguruma’s Zanpakuto “Tekken Tachi Kaze”. His astronomical Bankai\n\nreleases power blades. These power blades expel through the air and explode upon impact. Leaving none but a deadly outcome. But Kensei’s nonchalant attitude prevents him from taking anything seriously. Which often conflicts with his ability to be an efficient captain.\n\nLisa Yadomaru’s Zanpakuto “Haguro Tonbo”. Although her demeanor is calm, cool and collected. Her enemy should not underestimate her. Her Bankai releases a powerful “Iron Dragonfly”. The description of her Zanpakuto. But since Lisa has trust issues when dealing with others, she relies only on herself. This often leaves Lisa in a predicament of difficulty as situations arise.\nSajin Komamura’s Zanpakuto “Kokugo Tengen Myo”. A Bankai that releases an\n\nastounding and gigantic Samurai. This Samurai already equipped with an all-powerful sword and mimics Sajin’s movements. Which makes him appear indestructible. But his Bankai compensates for what Sajin lacks in skill.\n\nByakuya Kuchiki’s Zanpakuto “Senbonzakura Kageyoshi”. Also known as “Blade of a thousand cuts”. With a Bankai that expels only that, slicing his enemy into ribbons. It’s no wonder Byakuya is the strongest Captain of the Soul Society. The name of his Zanpakuto alone describes the supreme effect of Byakuya’s power. Since Byakuya is a stickler for the rules governed by the Soul Society. This effects his ability to be fair when “gray issues” arise.\n\nShinji Hirako’s Zanpakuto “Sakanara”. Also known as “Inverted World”. A world that reverses the laws of physics. This confuses his enemy before an unexpected defeat. It is obviously agreed upon that Shinji would be impossible to defeat. But sadly enough, with the ability to wield this power. He tends to be overly paranoid and rethinks important decisions. Which results in his downfall.\nIsane Kotetsu’s Zanpakuto “Ite Gumo”. Isane’s Bankai is unknown. But once she\n\ncommands her Shikai, a powerful triple-bladed Katana becomes unleashed. Paired with Kido combat, Isane overpowers her enemy. Unfortunately, since Isane had been second in command for quite a while as Lieutenant. She has not yet grasped the concept to lead as Captain.\n\nRojuro Otoribashi’s Zanpakuto “Kinshasa Butsudan”. The description, a “Golden Sai Tree”. When he commands his Bankai, Rojuro can create shockwaves by manipulating sound. This subdues his enemy before defeat. This gives the assumption that Rojuro is a fierce warrior. Truth be told. The only issue that makes Rojuro fiery enough to be fierce in battle. Often pertains to “spoilers” that are uncovered on a manga in which he indulges.\nSoi Fon’s Zanpakuto “Sazume Bachi”. Also known as “Little Hornet”. Once she\n\nactivates her Bankai, it can be fatal after only two strikes. Although Soi has a fun-loving demeanor, she is a serious threat in battle. The combination of her Bankai, hand-to-hand combat and Kido make her appear unbeatable. But her inability to gather sufficient evidence when proper judgement should prevail, often leads to faulty consequences.\n\nShunsui Kyoraku’s Zanpakuto “Katen Kyokutsu” In another sense means, “Make Playful Live”. Once he activates his Bankai, he can make simple children’s games live. Which creates fatal consequences for rule-breakers. Which also results in an unexpected defeat. Without a doubt, Shunsui appears omnipotent. Although, he tends to be a womanizer. The distraction from the many women he entertains, often leaves him blindsided.\nWith the consumption of this supreme level of power within one squad only. One may think, it is impossible for the Gotei 13 to succumb to any threat that presents itself. But when power, along with laws and regulations become abused. The Gotei 13’s only real threat might be themselves.
