nationalized bleach char. design

ill try to explain the best i can,
im looking to find out how the characters would look if it took place not in japan,
or at least, what would a "foreigner" character look like in the bleach universe
more focus on "american" but figured id leave nationality open ended so theres more to
discuss and be opinionated about

comparing the folklore of various regions "psychopomps" (spirit guides) didnt pan out,
so i was thinking more of, is there a comparable region specific fashion to match
the roles of the soulreaper, hollow/arrancar, vount, zanpaktou

for example an american/european, version might look like something between
vincent valentine and auron from final fantasy,
old timey highwayman or hunter (video game archetype)

I think your best idea would be to either come up with something yourself or maybe go to a fanartist on DA and have them commission you something.

although i'm still not really understanding what you're looking for.
In general, most anime characters look more western than real Asian people do.

Then again, it still kinda won't be bleach if they're european.

Well honestly, ichigo has pale skin and orange hair along with alot of other chars having nationalized traits so I think its already been made to be honestly.
(feel like bleach is a mix of everything)

firstly thanx for replying,

i kinda mean, i cant see everyone running about in kimonos or longcoats and flowing pants
and using katana, if it were another nation
also whether the whole reaper = black hollow = white, thing for clothes
would still be fitting,

could a character be more colourfull without breaking the aesthetic?

but i guess it kinda dosent matter as my design already fits, as long as some added colour is ok,

but theres still the matter of the zanpakto, what can i use as an alternative
and still be a soul reaper... ?
cant remember the word, its not facsimile or counter-part,
not parallel either but its the closest word i could find in the thesaurus
but i think yall get it, any ideas?
