I’m absolutely in love with the breathing style!!DEMON SLAYER CORPS INFO CARD
(Faceclaim: Wave, Akame Ga Kill)
Shuto stands at 5'10, with short dark blue hair and eyes. Spending most of his time working on a boat, Shuto has developed a lean, muscular figure. He wears the standard Demon Slayer Corps uniform, with a haori over it.
Shuto is very morally driven and zealous. He believes in justice and has an ultimate goal of world peace. However, he understands completely that peace cannot be obtained without initial violence. He is a firm follower of chivalry, swordsmanship, and the strength of duty. He will do anything - even if he doesn't want to - if he is bound by duty to do so. He isn't fond of killing others, but if he is provoked in any way, he will do it without hesitation. He gets along well with others, and can be rather easygoing and laid back when he isn't on a mission. He is very responsible and protective, with a bad habit of risking his life to protect others and shrugging it off afterwards. He is also easily annoyed by rudeness lack of manners, and often acts on his annoyance by lashing out at others.
Shuto was born shortly before his mother fell to pneumonia, so he was raised solely by his father, who was a fisherman. Because he was a single father, Shuto's father carried him on his back while he worked until Shuto was old enough to walk and help on the boat. Because it typically rained a lot at sea, Shuto developed a great balance and sense of touch, and developed his body and endurance in harsh climates since he was very young. When Shuto was about 13, they were attacked by a demon in the middle of the ocean. Shuto, who had learned some swordsmanship as he grew older, had to hold the demon at bay on his own until the sun came up. No matter how many times he decapitated the demon, it would keep coming back for more. Because he had learned that demons were real then, he joined the Demon Slayer Corps in order to prevent others from having to go through the same traumatic situation he did.
Goro Ran (Father), Aoi Ran (Mother, Deceased); Shuto's mother succumbed to pneumonia a few weeks after giving birth to him, and he was raised solely by his father, who often carried him on his back while he worked as a fisherman. Once Shuto was old enough to stand, his father had him help as much as he could. Shuto holds a great respect for both his mother and father, and believes that his father is the reason he was able to develop his Sleet Breathing technique.
Various shades of blue, teal, pink, and purple.
Shuto uses a standard nichirin Ōdachi with a blueish-gray ito wrap and a handguard truly fitting for a man of the sea.
Self-Taught, Breath of Sleet:
Sleet can progress into two different forms; It can either melt down into pure water, or freeze into ice. After realizing this during his time travelling the seas, Shuto developed his own breathing style: Breath of Sleet. This breathing style utilizes two different forms: Water, which is offensive, and Ice, which is defensive. Because of this, every attack also has a defensive variant.
Breath of Water
*First Form: Shallow Strike - The swordsman focuses their energy into a single, concentrated slash.
*First Form Ice Variant: Snow Slide - The swordsman blocks the incoming attack, and uses the block to parry into a Shallow Strike.
*Second Form: Rising Tide - The swordsman moves erratically, gaining speed as they move and attacking whenever they see an opening. Used to weaken stronger opponents by forcing them to bleed.
*Second Form Ice Variant: Black Ice - The swordsman blocks an oncoming assault, but also moves erratically while defending. This is to tire the opponent out by forcing them to move while they attack, consuming double the energy.
Third Form: Drown - The most difficult Sleet Breathing technique to use. The swordsman focuses directly on the weakest point of the enemy (Humans being their heart, Demons being their necks), and delivers a powerful thrust/slash to that area. Meant to be a quick finisher.
Third Form Ice Variant: Shield of Ice - The swordsman holds their sword to protect both their heart and their head, preventing an instant death.
Fourth Form: Heart of the Sea - The swordsman allows their natural instincts to kick in, and they attack in an unpredictable, animalistic way,
Fourth Form Ice Variant: Cyrotherapy - The swordsman focuses their breathing onto themselves, using the technique to speed up the healing process of sprains, clot bleeding wounds, and numb the pain of broken bones. Cryotherapy does not completely heal the swordsman, but it can be used to reduce the effects of lethal wounds and allow the swordsman to perform a final, last resort attack.
*Fifth Form: Riptide - The swordsman unleashes a relentless assault on the enemy, increasing the momentum in their strikes and delivering faster, stronger, and more precise blows the longer the attack is carried out. Used to break through defense and make openings.
Fifth Form Ice Variant: Glacier Armor - The swordsman concentrates all of their energy into defense, blocking as many attacks as they can. Used against large-scale or rapid attacks. A type of near-perfect defense.
Hidden Sixth Form: The Trench at the Seabed - The swordsman forces their opponent into a long-term striking match, unleashing a seemingly never-ending assault powerful enough to do damage, but suspiciously easy to block and parry. This is the swordsman's trick. Once enough time passes, the opponent will notice that their skin is beginning to turn blue and feel numb, and that they will have an extremely difficult time breathing. Despite the swordsman's attacks being easy to avoid, the opponent will realize that they were in a full-scale hitting match for a long period of time, focusing more on attacking and defending than breathing. They were forced into cyanosis by the swordsman, who has "dragged them to the trench at the seabed". To put it simply, the swordsman has simulated drowning the opponent, and the opponent will be extremely fatigued if the assault works the way it was intended to.
Hidden Sixth Form, Ice Variant: Blizzard - Much like the calm but ferocious falling of snow during a blizzard, the swordsman strikes their sword downward against their opponent's blade/weapon hard enough to temporarily force it into the ground if it is a sword, or cut it off if it is an enemy's hand. While the opponent is preparing to attack, the swordsman prepares an extremely slow downward slash. The opponent will generally believe that they can kill the swordsman while they are wide open, and move in faster. It is then that the swordsman slams their blade down.

She is like… your typical high school popular girl who knows she is pretty and has all the boys wrapped around her little finger and gets them to do things for her. She’s not going out of her way to bully people, but that manipulative side of her definitely rubs people the wrong way.
She’s flirty, manipulative, not outwardly mean or going out of her way to put people down, but will step on your fragile feelings if she thinks it will benefit her or her goals.

DEMON SLAYER CORPS INFO CARD
A fair-skinned teenager Tetsuo, the only stand-out facial features are the beauty mark under his left eye and a scar running from the bridge of his nose down to his right cheek. While not an important detail his hands are scarred and callous from the immense amount of training he does. Though he is noticeably well built for his age.
Tetsuo very easily blends into the many members of the demon slayer corps. He can be seen as quiet and submissive, usually keeping to himself and not bothering others. Despite this quiet nature, Tetsuo is a very driven and passionate person, sure he doesn't scream to the top of his lungs when pumped up about something, but a notable sparkle can be seen in his otherwise dull eyes.
He can also be self-conscious at times, especially when he's comparing himself to other stronger demon slayers.
Back in the age of the samurai, the Hamada clan was well-known swordsmen and warriors, specifically for their ferocity and tenacity. Though as the age of blades came to an end, so too did the family seem to fade. After that, the Hamada clan lived in a secluded area in the Kanto region unknowingly to the rest of Japan the Hamada estate came under the control of an "immortal ruler", a demon named Hamada Yuudai a member of the clan who became a demon to obtain immortality. Using his descendants as test subjects and toys in order to fuel his thirst for combat.
Tetsuo was born into this environment as Yuudai's great grandson. And from the moment he could remember his life was a living hell, day in and day out of intense "training" where only the strong would survive. Sibling was pitted against sibling and kin slew kin all in Yuudai's hope of creating a worthy opponent. At 12 Tetsuo had enough and on one faithful night, sneaking out and abandoning his "home" and while on his way out he managed to steal Yuudai's Nichirin Nodachi. Tetsuo went to the only place he knew he'd be safe, the Demon Slayers which he would join, eventually becoming a corps member and creating his own style of breathing based on Iaijutsu.
Hamada Yuudai (Great Grandfather)
(If anyone would like to have and sort of relationship or plot with Tetsuo let me know!)
Dark blue, rather standard-looking haori.
A slightly smaller Katana, the blade is a standard nichirin black (The one on the bottom). It is attached to his hip
Yuudai's Nichirin Nodachi which Tetsuo rarely uses, it's one grey blade is now stained red with blood. It is attached to his back.
~ "Self taught" style, derived from the sword style of the same name, Iaijutsu is a primarily defensive breathing style focusing on parrying and powerful counter attacts. With the first form leading into the rest. This style is a high-risk high reward as it requires the user to make precise, pinpoint, and nearly perfect movements when parrying an opponent (Especially from a demon). And while this style is heavily defensive it barely has any offensive or aggressive forms.
* = able to use
*1st parry ~ The user sheaths their blade, anticipating an attack. When in range the user quickly unsheathing their blade as it becomes a blur, the sword strikes the opponent's attack creating a bright flash of light. It has enough force to knock an opponent off balance and leave them open to attack.
*2nd counter ~ The user raises their sword in the air to deliver a devastating overhead slash. While not designed to decapitate an opponent it is used to deal heavy damage.
*3rd counter ~ Leaping over the opponent the user quickly spins around letting the momentum carry their blade and slice through the neck of a demon.
*4th counter ~ The user quickly jumps backwards doing a backflip as they do it, and while in the process they quickly slash at the opponent usually aiming for vital points (mostly the eyes). This is usually used to create space between the user and their opponent.
*5th counter ~ With their offhand the user delivers a powerful palm strike with enough force to knock back their opponent. While it might not do a lot of damage it does create space between the user and their opponent.
*6th counter ~ The user quickly dashes forward at incredible speeds, they then deliver a quick diagonal slash. Mainly used to close ground between the user and their opponent, highly effective against ranged opponents.
*7th counter ~ One of the few offensive counters as it is more of a preemptive strike. The user prepares just like the 1st parry, though before the opponent can reach them the user unsheaths their blade and strikes at incredible speeds. A risky form but still a good mixup.
8th counter ~ ???
9th counter ~ ???
10th counter ~ ???
~Tetsuo's keen sight is what allows him to parry opponents, even one which the naked eye can barely register.
~ Tetsuo is surprisingly talented at total concentration breathing and picked it up quickly during his early years.

Welcome to the gangTakeda
Like falling thunder
Across darkened skies above
This cold blade descends.
View attachment 910303Takeda simply appears to be an unimpressive, uninteresting young lady. With long, straight black hair, dark eyes, and fair skin, she doesn't stand out very much. Even height-wise, she's fairly average. These traits do not dull her blade or her deep-seated hatred for demons any, however.
Takeda is normally a shy young lady who seems to somehow be able to fulfil the duties of both a wallflower and a doormat. She is easily pushed around by her peers and even juniors, and she makes no attempt to assert herself. She's a bit of a reclusive hermit who keeps to herself and devotes herself to training and honing her skills rather than engage in any social interactions. She stammers a lot, and stumbles over her words, and is generally wholly incompetent when it comes to talking to people, worrying over every word she says.
When confronted with a demon or the idea of a demon, however, her personality takes a frightening turn. She becomes more assertive and no-nonsense, and pursues the death of her demon quarry, no matter what gets in her way. She has proven over time that this side of her is more than willing to cut down her own comrades who get in her way of her eternal vengeance. Where her other personality seems to simply let others walk over her, this one has no qualms about butting heads and clashing with anyone. This side of her doesn't have much in the way of social ability either. Cold and aloof, she doesn't much care for anyone.
Known only by one name, Takeda has no family to speak of, and keeps to herself most of the time, either training, meditating, or practicing poetry. She...wasn't always like this. Once, she had a father who smithed, in her eyes, the greatest swords she ever laid her eyes on. She had another name once too, and she had friends, and she had moments of happiness, even if they didn't live very well. She lost all of that when things took a turn for the worse. She witnessed the death of her father at the hands of a monster, and yet when she told this to her neighbours, they simply refused to believe her. She must have been imagining things. She must have gone delusional after losing her father, the poor thing. Unable to trust anyone, she set off on her own to find proof of this demon, taking along her father's final masterpiece- a shirasaya katana.
She fought, and killed, and fought, and killed, and fought some more, and killed some more. When the Demon Slayer Corps finally found her demon, she had killed it so many times, it was begging for death, while she stood above it, bearing a most stoic expression. No sooner was she taken under the Demon Slayer Corps' protection, however, she fell into a blubbering mess. Her form and style were similar to the Thunder Breathing style, and it was not too hard for her to get used to it. Giving her all to slaying demons, she cast away her own name, keeping her family's, for it was one of the few ways she could honor her father.
Takeda rose through the ranks by virtue of her bloodlust and skills. Though she was seen as both the agoraphobic, socially inept wallflower, as well as the cold and aloof killer of demons, there was no denying that she was a master of one of the hardest schools of breathing techniques, and her desire to kill was not left wanting. Eventually, she took the place of the Thunder Hashira. Not much has changed for her ever since- she kills, and that's all she will keep doing.
Everyone in General: She doesn't really get along with anyone, including the other Hashira. Her mouse-like attitude, and unwillingness to participate in any conversations with any more than an unwarranted apology or a half-hearted suggestion makes her genuinely difficult to converse with. Her other personality doesn't seem to make it any easier either, being the misanthrope that she is.
Red with dark blue trims and flowers embroidered on the sleeves.
A simple shirasaya katana with no furnishings or even a guard. The blade turns a blazing gold colour when held by her.
Due to the wiki not possessing the proper forms of Thunder Breathing, Form 2 through 6 are accomplishable variants of the attacks that the second Thunder Breathing swordsman uses, while Forms 1.2 and 7 are Takeda's own.
First Form: Thunderclap and Flash
The user unsheathes their katana, dashes forward at blinding speeds and decapitates their opponent faster than they can react before sheathing it back. This technique is extremely reminiscent of Iaijutsu and its movements are described to be akin to "lightning ripping through the air".
The basis of Thunder Breathing, Takeda is well-versed in it. She occasionally uses a variant of it, wielding and drawing her sword with a reverse grip instead of a normal grip.
First Form: Thunder Call and Echo
A variant of the First Form created by Takesa, used defensively and to counterattack. By removing the forward dash, Takeda can stay in place and parry an oncoming attack with a draw from a sheathed position, countering, then returning the sword back to its sheathe.
Second Form: Rice Spirit
The user releases five successive lighting-fast slashes in various angles from a sheathed position then returns the sword to its sheathe, overwhelming an opponent's defense by making them simply unable to block five attacks at that speed, and at the different angles.
Third Form: Thunder Swarm
The user dashes around the opponent, releasing several quick draw slashes at various points. At fast enough speeds, the opponent may not even be able to perceive a slash until the next one looks like it's descending upon them.
Fourth Form: Thunder Reign
The user performs multiple stabs at an opponent with rapid succession.
Fifth Form: Heat Lightning
The user performs upward sword slash from a sheathed position that aims for the opponent's weak point in their defense. This attack is usually used to disarm or break a standstill.
Sixth Form: Rumble and Flash
The user slashes forwards from an unsheathed position, then leaps backwards to obtain some distance from the opponent. It can be combined with Thunderclap and Flash to catch an opponent off guard if used consecutively.
Seventh Form: Swallow's Path
A move created by Takeda herself, incorporating the basics of Thunder Breathing as a whole. She dashes forwards at blinding speeds, striking the opponent with three swirling strokes that resemble a swallow's flight, aimed at the head, right arm, and left leg.
Takeda practices poetry, and has, on multiple occasions, been said to recite poems as eulogies or, perhaps, a death knell.
