The wielder of the zanpakuto known as the Suzumebachi, Soi Fon loves her master, Shihoin Yoruichi and adores anything that resembles a black cat because it is a form Yoruichi can assume at will. When she releases Suzumebachi, which literally means "hornet" or "giant sparrow-bee", the katana shrinks into a stinger that can be worn on the middle finger of her right hand. A sting from Suzumebachi will mark an opponent with a butterfly symbol known as a homonka or "hornet's crest". If stung in the same place twice, the opponent will most certainly die.
Beautiful Canadian cosplayer ~Pyrahus from Deviant Art! Reader Tara has given me Pyrahus' gallery, and I think this is one of my favorite photos of her. Thanks also to her photographer ~Kanna-tears for the awesome work!
