So far we are pretty much on are way within the war between the two factions. So I wanted to showcase whats happened so far.
- Captains: It is said that the power of the Gotei 13 is at its greatest when it has a full compliment of captains.
- Bankai: The Captains and in some cases lower level members have a bankai, the pinnacle of their power as combatants. To date a bankai is the most powerful expression of ones power and few adversaries have been able to match one let alone overcome one in its power and versatility.
- Kido: with its versatility and capability to aid in offense, defense and general support. It is the most inventive form of combat.
- Shunpo: the foot technique of the Shinigami.
- Hakuda: the hand to hand combat prowess for close quarter combat.
- Zanjutsu: the primary form of combat that is required for a Shinigami to learn. This masterful skill is what determines the basis for how the shinigami are viewed as combatants.
- Kisuke Urahara: Unquestionably the most intelligent man around. Insanely clever and deceptive in strategy and combat.
- Yoruichi Shihoin: Currently unseen as of yet but the fastest Shunpo user and master of hakuda and assassination.
- Orihime Inoue: Exceptional Healer
- Yasutora Sado
- No Eighth Division Captain or Lieutenant
- Smaller amount of Officers.
- Stealth Tactics: The Wandenreich from their 2 attacks have had the element of surprise on their side, capable of using the shadows escape from danger and appear quite easily anywhere. Effectively they can bypass the
- Numbers: The Wandenreich possess a greater number of footsoldiers (Soldat) and elite soldiers (Stern Ritter) than the Gotei 13. Overtaking them with sheer numbers easily.
- Enhanced Power: Quincy have the power to harness reishi (spirit particles) and manipulate them for a variety of purposes. Hiding themselves within the Seireitei for the past 1000 yrs has allowed them the opportunity of being in a area of virtually unlimited reishi in which to increase their powers.
- Unique Powers: Due to thier Emperors power the Stern Ritter are granted unique powers.
- Quincy: Vollständig: the pinnacle of Quincy power made manifest through their fixation with being holy and righteous.
- Blut: the basis for Quincy defense and offense. Capable of separately increasing durability or increase attack power.
- Inherently still human (as much as someone in their position can be), thus prone to human weaknesses.
- Soul Connected to their Emperor to empower him, thus inherently expendable.
Gotei 13 Injuries & Losses
- A Division roughly contains more then 200 officers and the 1st division was decimated by 106 within 182 seconds during the decleration of war. leaving the division with around 94 officers.
- Genryūsai Shigekuni Yamamoto: The most powerful Shinigami in 1000 years. Holder of the Zanpakuto with the greatest attack power.
- Retsu Unohana: The greatest Zanjutsu master in Soul Society and the Master Healer. Her death was a two-fold blow to the Gotei 13 in a time of war, unfortunately it was of their own making.
