Asuka Aikawa is a tall Shinigami with brown eyes and dark blue hair. He doesn't wears Shinigami robes, instead wears casual clothes.
Asuka is a kind of cocky in some condition. Kind of cold, but he shows great respect to everyone. He can also be serious when he realize the danger he faces and forcing to fight till his last breath.
Asuka was sent to the Seireitei when he died in a plane accident all together with his family. He was sent to the 80th District of Rukongai, Zaraki. He once wander around the forest and found a sword. Weirdly, Asuka managed to get out from the forest by the sword's guidance. He later kept that sword and began training what's called swordmanship. As mentioned before, there's a hollow invasion in the Zaraki and Kusajishi. The night before it, the sword somehow let out a voice, it told him to "show them the wrath of the cruel world" whenever he's in danger. Knowing about the hollow invasion, Asuka was about to wander to another district, but he failed. Hollows surrounded him when he was trying to escape from Zaraki. He pulled the sword that he always brought and shouted, "Show them the wrath of the cruel world!" Shadow Reiatsu emerged from the sword, charging through the hollows around him. The shadow reiatsu changed its form to a spirit and introduced itself as "Ryōshiryu (猟師龍, Hunter Dragon)." After a few time, he joined the Shinō Academy. However, he didn't make friends at all. Although he remembered nearly all the students in the academy, they didn't notice his presence a single bit. He only focused on training, he didn't even want to come when there's a fighting practice between student. After graduating in the Shinō Academy, he went on a hiatus, until now. He became the lieutenant of the 11th Division and was promoted lately as the captain of the 13th Division.
