Hokori is a young man with platinum silver hair, his left eye is gray and the right is blue and he has two noticeable scars one on his left arm and the other on his left leg. He wears a modified shihakusho, that features a sleeveless left arm, with the right arm having gray cord attached and wrapped around the upper part of the sleeve. He keeps the sleeve of the right arm rolled up and tucked so it won't fall down. The legs of the shihakusho have been modified to be less baggy, improving movement and in his personal opinion the overall look of the robe itself.
In shikai he eminates a white aura that turns azure blue at its peaks.
He also ditched the sandals for a light weight pair of black boots that he tucks the legs of his shihakusho into, but he did not like the way the sandals felt under his feet, and he feels that the boots give him better control over his footing.
He's very taciturn so he really only speaks when spoken to, but he shows resolve in whatever he sets out to do. He doesn't like people that run over other's for their own gain, or people who talk down on or intentionally beat up people weaker they they are.
His likes include eating, training, drinking sake and listening to heavy metal while he fights. He even has an acoustic guitar that he acquired from a friend in the academy and knows how to play the guitar quite well.
His dislikes include Ramen noodle soup, vinegar, bleu cheese and hollow's.
Backstory! The good stuff
Hokori Raionhāt was born in the Rukongai to his father Raian Raionhāto and his mother Tenshi Raionhāto. His family lived a hard life as they lived closer to the outskirts of the Rukon District, so they did not have much to go on their home was a run down house next to the river, and was constantly falling apart. It seemed as though Hokori's family was always having some sort of bad luck, as if there was a curse on their family, and Hokori's father Raian was always blaming their bad luck on Hokori's grandfather Aru, saying he was the reason for the despair his family suffered each day, because he was a Shinigami who was made to do terrible thing's and now the rest of his family suffered the consequences of his actions in the Gotei 13.
At a young age Hokori was always picked on and beat up by the bigger kid's in his village, but would always fight back even though he would always lose. The other kids laughed at him, called him weak and called him the cursed boy of the Raionhāto family. One day a boy named Ransu Suzaku picked a fight with Hokori, and even though he knew he was weaker than him Hokori stood up, with no fear of his attacker. Hokori had reached his breaking point and, was determined to defeat his attacker, even though he was outmatched his pride would not let him back down from the fight. Hokori lost the fight, but still he still felt accomplished because he showed Ransu he was not afraid of him. After the fight was over and Hokori lay on the ground bloodied and bruised, he saw the shadow of Suzaku standing over him, with an outstretched arm, he helped Hokori to his feet, and praised him for showing no fear even in the face of defeat.
From then on Hokori and Ransu became inseperable, and were constantly fighting with each other just to see was stronger, and even though Hokori and Ransu were two very different from each other, they found respect in one another. Their friendship lead them down paths that were both good and bad, they were constantly fighting with the other kids in the village and over time Hokori started to notice a strange sensation whenever he stayed out all day or after fighting with the other kids or Ransu. He asked his father about it only to have him start scolding him and yelling at him. Hokori had no idea why his father was angry at him and ran away from home to find Ransu. He asked Ransu if he knew anything about what he was feeling, but to no avail. Ransu didn't know what was going on and wondered why he was asking such question's and Hokori explained the situation with his father, and Ransu suggested that he go and ask his parents again, but Hokori decided that he was going to stay with Ransu for the night and go back the next day.
Before the light of the next day Hokori was awoke by the screams of villagers and the sound of burning houses crumbling under their own weight. He scrambled to find Ransu, who was nowhere to be found it seemed, so he ran home. As he was running he looked around at the onslaught that descended upon the village and wondered what had caused it, he came upon his family's house and looked on in shock as his home burned to the ground around him. While looking on at the inferno he shouted for his parents and Ransu, he soon began doubting they were alive until he heard a loud shriek that sounded like a monster out of his worst nightmares, he turned around to see a massive hollow standing before him. The hollow quickly descended upon Hokori, slashing his left side with his claws, Hokori lay there on the ground, knowing his death was certain, when he heard the cry of the Gotei 13, who arrived in time to dispose of the hollow. The next thing Hokori remembered was waking up and seeing people standing around him and seeing that his left arm and leg had been slashed open, and passing out again from the pain.
When Hokori finally awoke from sleep he sat up and looked around at all the people around him that were both alive and dead. His village had been completely destroyed by hollow's and he had no idea if his parents or Ransu were alive. He was greeted by a man from squad 4 who told him his injuries had been very severe, but that he would be fine after more rest, but Hokori could not rest knowing that his family and his best friend might be gone forever. Hokori asked about his parents and his friend Ransu Suzaku, but he had not seen them. Hokori then decided to go back to his home to look around and see what he could find. When he got back he looked around the rubble and debris that used to be his home and remembered back when his father told him about the cave next to the river where his grandfather made swords for the Gotei 13 and rushed there as fast as he could. Just as he remembered the cave was there and inside were Raian and Tenshi. He ran to them and looked in horror at the body of his dead mother who had been nearly torn apart by the hollow. Tears began to fill Hokori's eyes when he heard his father speak in a low voice, he rushed to his father who was mortally wounded by the same hollow that attacked him last night. His father said in relief he was glad Hokori was alive and told him about the strange feeling he had been having over the last couple of day's. He told him that he was feeling fatigue, and hunger, and thirst for the first time, and that it was because he had reiatsu, and explained that it only happens to certain people and that the best thing for him to do would be to become a Shinigami for the Gotei 13. This confused Hokori, because he thought his father hated the Gotei 13 because of the horrible things they made his grandfather do. The truth was his grandfather was only doing what he had to do to protect his family, he did those things to ensure the life of his wife and son were protected at all times, and it wasn't until then that he understood it. Raian Raionhāto's last words to his son were " become a shinigami and make a good life for yourself."
It was decided, Hokori was going to become a shinigami no matter what it took, but he wanted to find Ransu first, so he went back to the village where squad 4 was still tending to the wounded. He asked a man if he had seen a boy with long black hair and green eyes, and to his good luck, he was directed to the other side of the village where the attack had been far less severe. Hokori looked everywhere, and asked everyone if they had seen Ransu, but with no luck. After hours of searching he started to feel weak from hunger and decided to sit and rest for a while, and ended up dozing off to sleep. Hours later he awoke to being kicked and yelled at, when he looked up to see who it was kicking his newly healed up leg, he saw Ransu's smiling face.
Newly reunited with his friend he felt a small bit of happiness after losing both of his parents. Hokori explained the situation to Ransu about his parents and about what his father told him to do. Ransu replied that he would not be able to go with him to the Shinigami Academy, when Hokori asked why he told him that he did not feel hunger or fatigue and that he did not have the ability to become a shinigami. Ransu encouraged Hokori to go, and assured him that they would always be friends no matter what happened.
The next day Hokori went to the Shinigami Academy with a man he met from squad 4. It was recommended that Hokori be taken in because of the reiatsu he possesed for being so young, and the next day he was in the academy training to become a shinigami, and it was the academy itself that became his new home. Throughout his training he kept to himself for the most-part, making only a few friends along the way.
While Hokori had the potential to be a well rounded shinigami, he chose to focus the majority of his training on his sword training, leaving his kido training a lot less developed than it should be. The years flew by and Hokori soon found himself in the advanced training classes, where he excelled at killing his first hollow. Hokori's class mates then realized that Hokori had a vast hatred for hollows, and that he would kill one every chance he was given.
Finally after a couple more years he had graduated from the Shinigami Academy and was a full fledged Shinigami. Hokori was constantly training and bettering himself, and it paid off, but Hokori was far from the top of his class so he knew he had work to do, and he still does. Nowadays he spends his time hanging around the barracks and training, constantly trying to better himself and earn recognition among the Gotei 13.
