Powers & AbilitiesEdit
Expert Hand-to-Hand Combatant - Despite not needing his fists in most situations, Antan decided it was best to strengthen himself by learning how to fight without his sword. When he is training, he usually wears wrapped tape around his arms, making sure that they are protected when he is sparing and mostly wears only shorts in order to make sure he can feel the wind's change in direction. His style involves pressure points due to his sharp eagle-like eye sight, making him able to sense where most of the bodies pressure points are. He knows half of any normal person's pressure points, making him one tough opponent to fight when he doesn't have his sword.

Gokiburi(ゴキブリ Black Beetle) is the name of Antan's Zanpaktuo which takes the shape of a long Ninjatō, with a two pronged horn guard with a black and grey hilt. He is often seen carrying his sword right on his lower back, making it easier and quicker for him to draw out of it's sheath that is designed with scarabs on it. In it's Manifested form, Gokiburi takes the appearance of a tall muscular armored covered entity that has similar designs on his body to that of Black Beetles found in the human world.
Shikai(始解, Initial Release): By uttering the phrase Swarm, the Zanpakuto turns into energy as it wraps around both of his arms, producing two insect-like serrated blades on his hands. The swords are short, with curved blades that have a series of three “teeth” that serve to cut into enemies like a saw. The blade fit over the hands, seeming to fuse with the users arm, and can rotate to slash from every angle.
Shikai Special Abilities: In it's normal state, the blades naturally produce a special venomous toxin that once inside the opponent's body, it slowly starts to weaken the user's own spirit energy slowly from the inside out until they can no longer move or fight.
- Sasu Mono Nami(刺すもの波 Stinger Wave) - concentrating spirit energy through the two blades on his arm, Antan then slices down in a cross form, sending multiple energy stingers to an opponent, each with a small bit of poison that increases the dosage of poison that has already entered the enemy through his normal blades.
- Himei Hizumi(悲鳴ひずみ Shriek Distortion) - Vibrating both of his hands to near-fast limits, the blades start to resonate powerful sound emissions, and when crashed together, Antan is able to produce a sonic attack towards his opponent that not only scrambles their mind temporarly, they can also distort any ability produce by the opponent weaking it severly.
