Shikai: Released by the word "Growl" (唸れ), the sword's blade dissolves into ash that can be directed by the bearer at will, and used to attack with a simple flick of the wrist or defend by forming a shield.
Bankai: Unknown. Who knows what mysteries this Zanpakutō will reveal to its bearer?
Noted Special Abilities:
Neko Rinbu (猫輪舞 - "Cat Round Dance") - Creates an ash cloud which envelops groups of enemies and turns into a tornado.
