Application: Kisara Reizei
Karakura Town has been the subject of much abuse, and has been the witness to many horrors. Perhaps this was the fate of such a place seated upon Jūreichi (重霊地, Important Spirit Ground; Viz "Concentrated Spirit Zone"), to be cursed acting as a beacon for misfortune. With all that has happened, and all that it and its people have endured, patrols of Karakura have increased tenfold from members of the Thirteenth Division. Rotating between members, it seemed to be Kisara Reizei’s turn along with several of her peers.
Checking for any anomalies, they check the area for any signs of Arrancar influence or intrusion, thankfully…they find none. Their patrol appears to be going smoothly this time as well, the last few teams that have had to patrol have reported having a relatively easy time. As they prepare to soon wrap up and return home, there is an eerie silence that befalls the town. Streets that were once littered with people travelling are now empty, buildings and homes that housed its residents and patrons now vacant. Karakura Town in an instant, had become a ghost town.
Where had the people gone? The shinigami seem unable to make heads or tails of the situation. Kisara recalls records of a similar incident in the past, when the Soul Society to protect Karakura Town and its people from Sōsuke Aizen, swapped it for a fake. She deduces perhaps this is something similar, yet it's clear this is not the work of Soul Society. If not Soul Society, then who? And what were they using to cause the swap? As she ponders these things the bodies of one of her colleagues collapses; dead, and then another. They were under enemy fire, someone was taking them out from afar, and from what she could tell..it wasn’t a hollow or Arrancar, with the second death Kisara is able to perceive it, something she can only describe as a blue arrow tearing through the body. Panic rises in the hearts of the patrolling unit, it is up to Kisara who has not been driven by fear, to handle this situation they find themselves in, isolated and alone with an enemy of unknown numbers.
