A wolf the size of a large horse. He has yellow eyes, a long snout with a large mouth filled with large razor sharp white teeth.
He has dark grey fur with a black streak running over his head from his nose to his ears. The rest of his head and his paws are covered in a light blue fur that's almost white.
A dark cave made from black rock with stalactites hanging from the ceiling. Ulf is in the centre chained to the floor. Watching me with his yellow eyes and hoping that I will be careless and come close enough to bite.
The chain is thin, made of black metal and fastened to the ground with rings of the same colour.
Ulf sometimes speaks to me telepathically with an unearthly low voice sounding menacing with each word.
A 100 cm (39") double edged sword with a basket hilt ending in a silvery wolf's head. The blade appears to come out of the mouth of the wolf.
I carry the blade in a black leather scabbard on my back.
My fighting style with the unreleased blade is combination of Zanjutsu and Hakuda. I wield Ulf with one hand and kick, punch, grab and throw my opponents. My favourite tactic is to grab my opponent and throw him off balance while I get behind him and stab to either the back of his neck or his spine.
- Yla Ulf (Growl Ulf)
A 150 cm (60") double edged blade with a 30 cm (12") handle. It has a simple steel cross guard with a bright yellow gem set in the centre. After the guard there's the leather encased ricasso followed by the parry hooks.
- Blóðmóðr (Bloodwrath) *Passive ability
When my Zanpakutou is released it automatically causes everyone in a 20 meter radius to be affected by the raging spirit of Ulf. The intensity of the effect depends on the reiatsu. It can either go from a small amount of anger to a blinding rage where the affected person will attack anything nearby.
This ability is most useful for dealing with a large number of weak enemies.
- Bärsärkar-gång (Going Berserk)
I combine my strength with Ulf absorbing some of his spirit. This increases my speed and fighting power but at the same time I absorb some of his rage. A dangerous but powerful ability.
When faced with only one enemy I will use Blóðmóðr to power up and attack aggressively using slashing attacks to sever limbs. I can grab the blade by the ricasso and the handle to use it more like a spear and use fast thrusting attacks to impale my opponent.
By wielding it half-sword style (left hand grasping the ricasso and right holding the handle just below the guard) my attacks become faster but they're less powerful than the full swings when I hold the handle with both hands.
If I face multiple opponents I will use Bärsärkar-gång to cause confusion and I will attack the strongest among them. Then after I kill him I can move on to the less powerful ones and finish them off.
- Ulfheðnar (Wolf Berserker)
I hold Ulf in sword of my chest in horizontally half-sword style and say Bankai.
A bright yellow flash of light emits from the gem and I become bathed in the light for a moment.
When I appear again sword has turned back into its unreleased form and my shinigami uniform has turned into a leather scaled lammelar armour with black fur covering my arms.
Ulf materialises next to me, unchained and ready to fight. Image:
With Ulf materialised I can command him to attack my opponents. He can also use his shikai abilities.
His speed is fast enough to keep up with shunpo.
I can also ride on his back.
If Ulf is killed while he's materialised he'll return to my inner world and I won't be able to use Shikai or Bankai for
I command Ulf to attack my opponent and attack at the same time with my sword.
The second style I could use is to ride on his back and cut at my opponents as I rush by.
