- "Shintai Misuto... He wasn't the strongest, nor the brightest, or even the most well-liked person in the world. But he believed in us more than any other could, and calling him anything less than a hero would be an insult to his memory. Rest in peace, Shintai."
- —Garian Shinjo.

Character Outline Edit
Shintai was short of height, small in stature and quite thin besides. In fact, Garian Shinjo used to call him Beanpole-san. He wore his white-colored hair is several messy spikes atop his head, with the sideway bangs on either side of his head to frame it. His eyes were red and considered the fiercest part of his entire appearance, with a slitted iris befitting that of a feline. His features were smooth and untouched by the elements, causing many, Garian most of all, to call him Baby face. He usually wore a Shihakushō-style dress, with a dull yellow kosode, long-sleeved shitagi colored brown, and hakama the same color as his kosode. Placed on either forearm were red bracer's that also extended to cover the first two or three inches of his hand, held in place by two straps - one just beneath the elbow and the other crossing the palm of both hands.

Powers and Abilities Edit
Spiritual Energy: While he only exhibited a small degree of spiritual energy, Shintai was believed to hold great potential; shown from his great appetite, even when not consuming spiritual energy.
Swordsmanship: Shintai had enough skill in swordsmanship to be fit to combat average Hollows effectively.
Yuengiri Expert: Shintai's greatest skill was his knowledge of the Yuengiri's techniques, including the Wan'nesu and their unique sealing methods.
Enhanced Speed: Having not developed Shunpo before his death, Shintai relied on his physical leg strength to get him from A to B. While not fast by any stretch this did afford him a good degree of stamina and enhanced reflexes.
Shintai's zanpakutō appeared like an average katana, with brown-colored hilt wrapping and a guard of the same color. Its guard was smooth with inward edges and a neat and polished design. It was usually carried on his back, held in place by a vibrant red sash.
Shikai: Not Achieved.
