Kusagi Kōta (小唄 臭木, Kouta Kusagi; Literally "Ballad of the Harlequin Glorybower") is a Quincy of great power. Only a child when the genocide of the Quincy occurred, Kusagi escaped death due to a series of accidental events. Placed onto a train to see his Aunt and Uncle, it would be under their care that his fellow Quincy would be slaughtered.

Left orphaned, Kusagi was taken in by his Aunt and Uncle who were Quincies who chose not to follow the Hollow-exterminating lifestyle. Deciding to take vengeance on the Shinigami whom killed his people, Kusagi became the first Quincy Gunman (クインシーガンマン, Kuinshī Ganman), trained in the Mercenary-art and master of anti-Shinigami warfare.

Personality[]

Very hard and stubborn, Kusagi is strong on his goals to avenge his fallen brethren. He believes that since he was to young to fight back then, it is up to him to fight back now. Kusagi is mentally emotionless, training himself to only be interested in his goals. He has little care for anyone but himself, but catches himself on occasions helping people for good reasons. While he has a great detest for Hollows, he doesn't find himself following the footsteps of his fallen brethren when it comes to their job of Hollow extermination. His hatred for Shinigami is something he keeps under control, taking a calm approach when fighting one.

Kusagi is an intellectual and strategic man, mastering the art of both anti-Shinigami warfare and the array of Quincy techniques on his own. He is noted at being skilled in many arts, ranging from standard academics to modern warfare. His ability to make up strategies on the spot, in order to outwit his opponents is something noted by many to be unique and scary. Kusagi has shown to be rather cruel as well, taking down Shinigami in deceitful and cryptic ways such as firing point-blank to the head.

Appearance[]

Cloaked Man2

Cloaked Kusagi

Kusagi's attire differs from the standard Quincy ware, consisting of a blue leather jacket with several straps along the arms and waist and a pair of long blue pants. He wears a pair of black boots up to his lower calf and black fingerless gloves. He wears a modified belt, fit to carry gintō tubes by the dozens. He is often seen wearing his signature blue hat and goggles along with a long white scarf. He carries his revolver, Kumabachi (熊蜂, Hornet), in the holster around his right thigh.

Kusagi is also often seen draped in a long black cloak with the hood down. He prefers to use this cloak when spying, performing reconassaince or when he is in pursuit of a Shinigami.

History[]

From the northern most part of Japan, Kusagi was unaware of his Quincy lineage for most of his early. His parents, coming from a higher branch of Quincy who trained in the art of Anti-Shinigami Warfare. Deciding to keep Kusagi out of the loop, so he could have a chance at a normal life and becoming successful, their dreams were cut short when Kusagi witnessed a Hollow attack his families home. Forced to materialize their Quincy bows, his parents defeated the Hollow and revealed their powers to young Kusagi in the process. Unsure of what he saw, Kusagi would feel like he was distant from his parents from that moment on.

As a young boy, Kusagi would quietly study and continue his academic career; his parents seeking for him to follow the path of Law. One night, Kusagi would awake to find his parents had prepared to leave, armed heavily to the teeth. Telling Kusagi that they had "formal business" and that Kusagi would be staying with his Aunt and Uncle. Not wanting his parents to leave, Kusagi told them that he would go with them. Finding his bravery admirable, despite his young age, his mother handed him a a scroll, marked with a blue cross and his father handed him a black-colored blade called the Kokutō. Embracing him, they headed out, dropping Kusagi at his Aunt and Uncle's on the way.

Days later, Kusagi would learn that they had been killed, sending him into an emotional spiral. Freaking out, spiritual energy began to quake around him. Grasping him in his emotional breakdown, his Uncle would calm him and tell him what he was and who he would one day be. Through his tears, Kusagi would swear that each and every Shinigami would fall before him, in the name of the Quincies pride.

Years later, graduating from college with a Masters in Law, Kusagi would take up his status as a Quincy of great skill. Arming himself to the teeth and training in ancient Quincy-arts, Kusagi would become known as a Quincy Gunman for his usage of a revolver capable of spiritual-manipulation.

At some point in the past, Kusagi fought against Hyōsube where they both pushed themselves to the edge. Unable to fight, Kusagi called for Hyōsube to kill him just as he killed his family. Showing sympathy to Kusagi, Hyōsube explained deeply how he was unlike the rest of the Shinigami. This moment greatly effected Kusagi, sparking the friendship between the two.[1]

Plot[]

New Discoveries Arc[]

Following their return from the Dangai Precipice World, Hyōsube and Keigai Honrui would encounter Kusagi who had relocated to Karakura Town. Pushing both of them into a corner, Kusagi quickly went to eliminate Hyōsube but lacked the ability to when it came to it. Hyōsube, speaking of purity and how he was different then the Shinigami of time's past, Kusagi called Hyōsube a nonsensical fool before disappearing.

Seen later on before a pair of graves labeled Kusabue Kōta and Hatetori Kōta, Kusagi placed a rose down and pleged that next time he saw a Shinigami especially that one, he would kill them without a thought.

Battle for Hell's Gate[]

After war had been declared by a Diabolus named Severus Severino, whom attempted to gather the powers of the Gates of Hell to let loose a living Hell on the World of the Living, Kusagi had taken notice and had decided to watch the outcome from the sidelines.Watching Hyōsube and Keigai's attempts at defeating the Diabolus, he became intrigued by Hyōsube's resolve.

"Humanity isn't something you can just tread on... each and every being, Human and Shinigami alike share a common belief. That they will survive against all odds!"
—Hyōsube

As Severus went in for the final blow, Kusagi stepped in and blew through Severus' arm sending it adrift into oblivion. Stating that "he would kill [Hyōsube] before anyone else had the chance", Kusagi along with Hyōsube defeated Severus. As the Gates of Hell began to grow unstable, spawns of Hell began to spill out. Arming himself with Kumabachi, Kusagi used Licht Regen to take out each Demon, allowing Keigai to shut the gate manually.

Afterwards, Kusagi would state that they work well together and that he would continue his business in the near future, setting an Alliance between the three.

Techniques[]

Hagoromo (羽衣, Angel's Raiment; Literally "Angel's Majestic Wear"): Kusagi's newest technique, Hagoromo, focuses on gathering together the reiryoku in the air around him in large amounts. Gathering it to the barrel of his revolver, Kusagi will fire it upward into the skies. Up in the clouds, the spiritual energy grows rampant and wild, finally coming down in the form of rain. The rain acts as a reiryoku-leeching mechanism, pulling out spiritual energy as it runs across the skin.

Spirit Bolt

Seitennohekireki (青天の霹靂, A Bolt out of the Blue; Literally "Flash from the Skies"): Using a Selee Schneider onto a set point, Kusagi will fire a blast into the air. When a being comes within range of the Selee Schneider, the shot will come back down in the shape of a bolt, striking the Selee Schneider and whomever is in its range.

Banryoku (万緑, Myriad of Green Leaves): An ancient Quincy-technique that focuses on manipulation of the spiritual particles in the air. Reflecting one's own image off the spiritual particles, it allows the user to give the appearance that their are hundreds of them while in actuality its just the exertion of spiritual energy reflecting the image of the user. Kusagi has mastered this technique for "deception-purposes".

Licht Regen (光の雨 (リヒト・レーゲン), Rihito Rēgen; German/dutch for "Light Rain", Japanese for "Rain of Light"): Gathering a large amount of spiritual energy within the barrel of Kumabachi, Kusagi will press down on the trigger and fire a volley of compressed reishi bullets towards his opponent(s) at insane speeds. He is capable of firing up to 1,265 reishi bullets in one shot.

Godō (悟道, The Path to Spiritual Enlightenment; Literally "Path of Enlightenment"): Manipulating spiritual energy at the palm of his hand, Kusagi will place his hand onto a target's forehead and release the spiritual energy.

Equipment[]

Kokutō (黒刀, Literally meaning "Ebony-colored blade"; Black Sword): A unique katana forged from reflective-less black metal that Kusagi has shown to rely on in close combat. The Kokutō has shown to act as a Lightning Rod, capable of drawing in Kusagi's spiritual rounds when fired.

Kusagi calls it his Black Hornet (黒蜂, Kurohachi; Literally "Black Bee") due to his signature imprint on its face.

Quincy Shot

Kumabachi

Kumabachi (熊蜂, Hornet; Literally "Japanese Carpenter Bee"): As opposed to the standard Quincy Bow & Spirit Arrows, Kusagi has shown to carry a specially made Revolver capable of storing large amounts of spiritual energy within its barrel. Compressing the spiritual energy into "Reishi Bullets", Kusagi can fire them in large amounts. He often holsters it on his right thigh, allowing him to quickly draw it if the situation calls for it. When angered, which he rarely is, Kusagi's gun becomes rather unstable and can fire a pressurized blast of spiritual energy rivaling that of a Gran Rey Cero.

Jōbachi (女王蜂, Queen Bee; Literally "Queen of the Bee Hive"): Following suit with Kumabachi, Kusagi has invented a long-ranged rifle capable of firing Reishi Bullets. . They are fixed, 10-power scopes with a 32mm objective lens. This means that they are capable of magnifying an image to 10 times its size. The sniper uses the wire reticule with mil dots to range and sight the target. The mil dots surround the target center and allow the sniper to estimate the distance between objects and make adjustments for wind or moving targets.
