Character name: Vincenzo

Age: Unknown

Specie: Arrancar

Aspect of death: Legacy

Character Appearance:
Standing at six feet, eight inches, his tremendous height is only built upon by the knowledge that his power exceeds that of any other individual in Hueco Mundo, and not by a trivial amount. It makes him seem as if he is titanic. The way that he carries himself with absolute confidence and conviction, holding his posture perfectly in a domineering, statuesque way, imposes his authority on those around him like a general pacing in front of his army.

Vincezo's face is rugged, much like his well-toned body, with sharp, angular features that betray the long-lost heritage that he abandoned so many years ago. Everything from his jawline, which could cut boulders, to his powerful brow is shaped with strength, as if he had been chiseled from the bedrock beneath the plains of his homeland. His naturally tan skin is reminiscent of clay, and without a scar anywhere on his body, it remains a testament to his Hierro and the man that it protects. Full, thick lips hide not only a set of perfect teeth, but Vincenzo's Hollow-hole, which lies hidden at the back of his throat. Because of the unique shape and function of his windpipe, it does not impede his breathing or his ability to speak.

Despite the countless dangers of Hueco Mundo, with its treacherous and unforgiving sands, Vincenzo's light brown eyes somehow overshadow his environment and continue to be the most intimidating features of the dimension. Taken alone, they are unspectacular in their appearance, with a hue similar to cinnamon; a rather average tone. When coupled with the man to whom they belong, however, they become piercing and unforgiving, holding back judgment so swift that they have shaped an entire dimension to better serve their vision. It is through these eyes that one of the most powerful beings in existence sees the world around him, choosing what he wishes to eradicate to ensure that the legacy of the Hollow race remains great.

On the bridge of Vincenzo's nose, right beneath his gaze, lies what is left of his Hollow mask. These fragments take the shape of a peculiar jawbone that reaches from temple to temple, arching gradually across his cheekbones and connecting the two sides of his face. Loaded with a set of razor-sharp canines, ranging in length from one to nearly two-and-a-half inches, this remnant of his former form is a reminder of the ferocious and barbaric nature of the powers sealed within his Zanpakutō. In a way, it is the only public symbol of his nature as an Arrancar, with his Hollow-hole deep within his mouth, the '1' tattoo of his rank between his shoulder blades, hidden by his uniform, and the lack of colored markings that many of the other members of his species feature prominently on their faces.

Perhaps the most well-known feature of Vincenzo is his hair. Wild, deep-brown dreadlocks grow from every inch of his scalp, pulled back so that they fall in a cascade down to his waist. They cover his ears, the back of his Hollow-hole, and half of his torso, making them a prominent part of his appearance. The dreadlocks are not natural, however. Vincenzo takes time every once in a while to make sure that they are bound and taken care of, for his natural hair, which has never been cut, remains far too wild to keep up appearances in front of the Hollow under him. Strings of white and blue feathers, trophies taken from the corpse of Hueco Mundo's former ruler, can be seen tied here and there in the waterfall of brown. While they are dangerous items in their own right, Vincenzo sees them mostly as symbols of what happens to those who fight against progress.

Being the first Espada in his region, it was the twin brothers who enacted the current dress-code for the Arrancar breed of Hollow. Vincenzo and his brother 'Hernandez' chose its general design due not only to its symbolic nature, being the functional opposite of the Gotei 13 uniform, but also because it brought a sense of unity and a common thread to the group that formed under his rule. By having the Espada force their Privilege to obey a standard of appearance, a wave of recognition was created, and it swept across Hueco Mundo, reminding each and every Hollow that the sands were under a new, greater order. Those who are seen without this now-accepted manner of dress are almost immediately treated with extreme suspicion; it is seen as a sign that one is not aligned to any of the Espada, which is a crime punishable by consumption should they not submit themselves to the service of a Privilege.

Vincenzo's own uniform has been specially tailored to his liking by the same Arrancar who created the template in the first place; he chose not to create it from his own compressed spiritual energy like many choose to. The jacket features the standard long sleeves, sewn perfectly to fit the muscled tone of his powerful arms. The front, meanwhile, has been customized with an extended v-neck that reaches all the way from his inner-shoulders to the top of his navel. The black cloth outline of this tailored cut meets at the middle of his stomach, continuing down until it makes contact with the sash around his waist, which remains entirely unaltered along with his hakama. The reason for this choice in design is intimidation. If threatened by an enemy worthy of his time, Vincenzo will keep his hands to his sides, exposing his chest and offering for his opponent to strike at the bare flesh that he presents. The blatant confidence of this action is often enough to drown any dissidence, and those who choose to continue are always quick to regret their actions.

Cero Color: Red

Bala color: Crimson

Reiatsu Color: Grey

Reiatsu Form: Violent flaring outburst of amorphous reiatsu

Personality: Vincenzo is a man of strict, disciplined vision. He is uncompromising in his beliefs that the Hollow race is capable of great things, and he is willing to destroy anyone who he perceives as an inconvenience along the path to bringing his people to their full potential. This core concept, the foundation of his outlook, was set in stone long ago, back when he was a human capable of seeing the spirits around him. Unlike the others of his tribe, spiritual men and women who considered nature as a world of good and evil, he did not see the use in purifying Hollow, nor did he find them inherently unworthy. Instead, he found himself respecting them. He wished to bring them to another plateau of existence beyond what any mere human could ever hope to achieve. This eventually led him to judge those around him as a weak and purposeless by comparison. After his eventual defeat and his banishment to Hueco Mundo, the man-turned-beast found himself in a world where he could thrive alongside his brother. And by the time he had reached his place as an Arrancar, his beliefs solidified into his Aspect of Death, Legacy, which continued to drive him to create a future for the Hollow race that is devoid of petty weaknesses and base barbarism.

A major facet of Vincenzo's personality is his complete intolerance for substandard Hollow. Those who submit themselves to their primitive instincts, eschewing their potential for greatness through ignorance and weakness, are anathema in his eyes. The masses that cannibalize wildly on others out of pure hunger are, to him, insulting creatures that serve no purpose but to be consumed to bolster the strong-willed and able-minded, which allows the most capable to enhance their senses and grow closer to his ideal.

Although an imposing individual by virtue of both his power and his willingness to use it to obliterate those who oppose his ideals, the twin demon is perfectly rational, even courteous to those he deems worthy of his respect. Any Arrancar that displays the qualities that he finds most suitable is treated as an equal in his eyes, which is often quite a surprise to the unaligned found on the fringes of the Privileges, many of whom know nothing beyond the terrifying images painted by the few rebels who manage to escape the territories alive.


All of the emotions that Vincenzo finds useless or degrading are hidden deep within the flesh of his soul, heavily suppressed by the same discipline that deems him fit to rule as an Espada. He does this to ensure that he meets his own standards, and that the drives of his Hollow instincts remain locked away in the name of progress. As a result, each major emotion that he shows is almost entirely under his control. He does not become elated unless he permits himself to feel the rush of positivity, nor does he become angry without a purpose to its expression. On a functional level, this allows him to utilize his powers and skills in ways no others can, with him accessing primal feelings whenever he deems it beneficial to battle. When looked at through a social perspective, however, it makes the man seem incredibly cold. He rarely smiles or shows any emotion at all, even when cutting down dissidents.


History:
Vincenzo and Hernandez who brought order to the infinite chaos of Hueco Mundo, can trace their blood and breath back through legend and myth to the human world. There, they were born under a lunar eclipse to a man and woman who called a stretch of North American plains their home. They were called "Twin Angels" based on the Joy and hope their birth sprouted into the lives of their parents. Their tribe, a strong, spiritual people, practiced a faith that revered the energy of nature. They believed that the spirits of the soil, the sky, and the trees blessed their flesh and allowed them to survive where other living creatures could not. In a way, this faith was true, as each member of the tribe possessed innate spiritual capabilities beyond that of most humans; they could see and even destroy Hollow (wayward demons), according to their beliefs, with their unique talents at manipulating spiritual energy and special training honed over generations. Even the Shinigami recognized their genetic line and its powers, and their patrols were instructed to avoid their territory and the danger that it posed.

An elder of the tribe had once foretold the arrival of a spiritual envoy, a bridge between the corporeal world and the mystical forces of nature. The blood-red moon, a product of the lunar eclipse of 'Twin Angels' birth, fulfilled this prophecy. With the dreams of their people heavily invested in the words of their elder, the young boys were deemed a gift from the spirits, and they were separated from their family to undergo special training less than a year after their birth. The elite warriors of the tribe devoted themselves to them, focusing their impossibly prodigious gifts into weapons that were meant to purify the demons ;the Hollow, that corrupted the spirits of nature. In the end, it produced an elite twin who felt no fear, had a genius intellect, and possessed spiritual powers beyond those of numerous Shinigami.

What the others could not have known was that Vincenzo and Hernandez had a corrupted heart, and that their lust for power and perfection would eventually lead them to destroy the rest of their people in an effort to annihilate what they had judged to be a group cursed by weakness. In their last effort to rid the world of an evil that they had created, the elders of the tribe ripped a hole open in the fabric of reality, killing the twin angels and sentencing them to become one of the Hollow that they had been trained to fight; the portal to Hueco Mundo that swallowed them placed them in the middle of the Forest of Menos. But right before they got sucked into the void of darkness, a mysterious event transpired. At the verge of death, the twin brothers crawled their way to each other with hopes of dying side by side each other, just like the way they came into the earth together and as such their blood mixed. The spiritual forces and energy used to trap the twins while the void swallowed them, tampered with their blood and as such bonded their souls together. After they had transformed they discovered their body and soul were 'one'. With their human-life powers, combined with their training and incredible self-discipline, allowed them to quickly move up the ladder of evolution, becoming a Vasto Lorde and then an Arrancar within a few short decades. Ever since then, they've be known by different names, some call them; twin demons, terror of Hueco Mundo, demon brothers.

Unreleased Passive Abilities

Name: Demon's love.
Type: Unreleased Passive.
Element: None.
Description:
Vincenzo's and Hernandez innate passive ability gives them the unique ability to merge and separate their physical bodies at will. The two brothers usually use this ability to share the same body, physical power and stats, as one body resides within the other. It enables them bring out some of their body parts to aid each other in battle, as the one within can perform sneak attacks so fast and stealthy that most wouldn't even notice. This makes them extremely dangerous in a physical combat, as they could utilize their limbs to attack opponents at the same time. In this state, the one within the other can still utilize his five senses as if he was outside in thus covering for any blind-spots his twin may have.
If needed, the Twin Demons
can separate from each other's body so that they can move independently. However, the brothers cannot maintain a deconstructed state for a long period of time due to the strain it renders to their body system. The curse of needing each other to survive is plague that hunts them for eternity but becomes lethal to others in opposition.

After their separation, should any injury befall either of the brothers, they can merge with each other to regenerate. That way, their healing rate becomes one level faster than their previous state and as such makes them heal faster than a normal arrancar, though it depletes a larger amount of reiatsu.

Ability wise, Vincenzo and Hernandez both have different unique abilities that can be used independently. While using 'demon love' the brothers cannot simultaneously use their elemental abilities the same time. One needs to pause for the other to execute elemental attacks. The said limitation is ineffective if they totally deconstruct from each other.
• The twin brothers can stay deconstructed for a maximum of ;

Name: Dragoon
Element: Gravity Manipulation
Type: Passive unreleased
Description:
Vincenzo's essence is drenched with acute control gravity, as he could create, shape and manipulate it with great ease. Vicenzo's unreleased form grants him the power to bend gravity to cause objects to “fall” toward another object instead of the earth (“nexus inducing”). Been bestowed with the gift of one of the fundamental forces, he can repel and attract matter and energy dependent on its mass or move objects in a manner similar to telekinesis.

• Demon's Tomb: This allows Vincenzo project a 50m radius gravitational force-field that drastically increase the gravity in the said area, making moving or even standing difficult for anyone/anything with equal or lower reiatsu control, possibly causing damage to the targeted area/targets, prompting the ground to crack and cave in, crushing the targets. Or he could drastically decrease the gravity in the said area, making moving difficult for anyone/anything with equal or lower reiatsu control, possibly causing people/objects to float involuntarily. The prowess of the gravitational force intensify the further one gets to Vincenzo's essence thereby slightly thwarting attacks or movements from stronger opponent(s) who get within a range of 5m. So also he could augment the strength of the gravity field by infusing a desired amount of reiatsu if need arises. And in the said field, his body becomes instinctively surrounded by a gravitational field which amplifies his physical strength by one level but costs greater amount of reiatau to maintain for an etensive period of time. Been the user of such detrimental force, makes him completely immune to the effects of his ability.

Resurecciòn

Zanpakutō Name: Ápice Depredadors (Apex Predators)

Zanpakutō Appearance: It's a pair of white arm gauntlet that covers the wrist down to almost the elbow area, thus more like a cuff. This gauntlet houses their true form or like most would say, their true power. On top of it at the middle, is a skull shape like design. Due to the immense power sealed within it, this gauntlet is highly durable as it could deflect impacts even from blasts. Apart from it's durability, the gauntlet can sprout out a blade from its sides and front outwards which has the sharpness of any sword out there. The side blade runs along the length of the gauntlet, at the middle of the side blade comes a curve inwards which separates it thus making it look like two separate blades. The side blade points out about 4 inches from the arm, while the front one has a length of 12 inches from the wrist.
Image
Resurrección Appearance: In order to release their Zanpakutō and enter into their unsealed state, the twin demons more often clear the area by releasing an extraordinary wave of Reiatsu, enough to deeply crush anyone under them in power. Those who can sustain themselves beneath the wave are often brought to one knee, if not flattened against the ground entirely. The twin demons cross their hands, forming a X shape across their chest with their fist clenched hard. Then momentarily separating their crossed hands, they bring it back and this time slam the two gauntlets against each other. With the deep voice that commands the progress of an entire race, they would say:

"Evolve, Ápice Depredador."

Immediately, gray Reiatsu explodes outwards in all directions, sweeping buildings from their supports and vaporizing sections of the ground. They become completely surrounded by this energy, cutting them off from view as their body shifts into its released form. Although it is impossible to see what is happening from the outside, those with particularly good senses can tell that the power brewing behind the storm is growing exponentially as seconds go by.

When the torrent of Reiatsu dies down, the twin brother's new form becomes plainly visible. The face is as stoic as always, but the mask fragments have taken on entirely new dimensions. The originally thin jawbone that trailed across the bridge of the nose is now thicker, taking up a larger portion of the cheeks and face as a whole. The teeth that it had featured have grown as well, becoming far more vicious-looking and violently pointed. They only just reach the lower half of the head, falling short of the lips. In addition, a new part of the mask would materialize, acting like the mandible of a skeletal mouth. It connects to the first half at theirs temples, then continues down their strong jawline. The teeth of this part of the mask are directed upwards, reaching just beneath the lower lip. As a whole, it appears as if the twin demon's mouth and the lower part of the nose have been framed within the jawbones of a large predator, whose gaping maw has become a part of the brothers.

While their hair remains entirely unchanged by the transformation, the uniform that they wore shifts its physical nature quite dramatically. Instead of a low v-neck, a diagonal separation, reaching from the middle of the left shoulder to the right side of the waist, cuts the clothing in half, making one side of the upper-body covered in a uniform while the other remains entirely bare. The common black stripe of the fashion lies directly across this dissecting line. Their right side, which remains clothed, is now completely encased in the white cloth of the Arrancar, including their hands. It is almost as if their bare skin has been sealed away, in contrast to Left side, which shows the tan muscles of their pectoral and arm.

Connected to the clothing of the torso is an altered bottom. A thick belt holds tight against their waist, fastening the upper half of their uniform securely against the skin. A large portion of the white cloth continues past this belt, splitting at the front/center plane of their body to wrap around the lower half until knee-level. In an upside-down 'v', this lets opponents see their upper legs from a straight-on look, but not frome any other angle. No longer a hakama, the bottom half the clothing is now black and tight, with no excess fabric and only a few inches to spare from the flesh of their legs. This allows for incredible maneuverability, which is a primary function of the Resurrección. The tabi and sandals of the Arrancar do not change, even though the rest of the uniform does.

In Resurecciòn, their left hand still has the gauntlet but this time the blades is different. The side blade now points outwards to the front, in a slightly curved manner, reaching a length of 20 inches long. Their right side which is covered in clothing doesn't have the gauntlet anymore, but instead their fingers now protrude claws further depicting their demonic nature.

[geni]Primera Legion,Espada,45,Ápice Depredador.[/geni]

Powers & Abilities

Reiatsu [S]


I as I am now, I sit in a realm thought to be the pinnacle of spiritual power. This power is so immense that even Captains feel small by comparison. Titanic would be the best to describe my spiritual strength, where even high-level spells feel almost inconsequential to use. At this point, my full power would be oppressive even to those at a great distance. It would take significant suppression efforts to prevent my presence from being known to all as soon as I appeared on scene. With enough control my reiatsu alone is could used to near lethal effect when focused, without control my presence alone is enough to cause significant harm to anyone unable to resist it.

Strength [E]


Unfortunately I sit a level indicative of someone who does no physical conditioning and not much of anything else. I could be described as physically frail. Moving anything other than myself is a struggle. An attack using strength alone might knock down someone who is much smaller, but the damage would be minimal. Throwing objects in combat, while still being able to cause harm would be limited to something like a fist-sized rock.

Durability [E]


I'm no more hearty than the average human. Even the most basic of attacks from someone of even meager strength would be enough to cause significant harm to their person.

Endurance [C+]


A bit above your average cut in terms of endurance. I could try to last the night but I'd likely tire out in the final hours. A moderate level of high intensity actions would feel draining unless I could have a moment to catch my breath.

Reiatsu Control [S+]


I can completely hide up to S+ reiatsu.
  • Reaitsu channeling can produce full strength blasts with long range, using much less reiatsu in making them.
  • Blast strength is perfectly controlled.
  • Can cast:
    • Shinigami:
      • Kidou: 1 - 99 with incantation
      • Incantation Abandonment: can cast Kidou 74 to 99 at reduced power
      • Mastery: can cast up to Kidou 73 at full power without incantation
      • Two-Fold Incantation: can cast two kidou at the same time, at full power, by mixing the incantations
      • Double Casting: can cast the same kidou at two targets at once.
    • Arrancar:
      • A Novice Cero (Adjucha-power)
      • A Normal Cero
      • A fully-loaded Cero
      • Twin Cero -- one Cero per hand, both at Normal Cero power.
      • Twin Full Cero -- one Cero per hand, both at fully loaded Cero power.
      • Bala -- 20 times quicker than a Cero, especially in the load time, but weaker in effect
      • Bala Barrage -- to devastating effect
      • Cero uses much less reiatsu to make; strength is perfectly controlled.
      • Cero techniques may be modified on the fly with full effect and are always stable.

Zanjutsu [E]


At this level I exhibit a total lack of knowledge and or skill. I have no idea I am doing. Any attack I do would be based on instinct and guesses. At best swings are imprecise and leave many openings for counter-attacks, parries, and the like. Even a solid impact might knock the blade from the my hand. It's almost a wonder that if I would be capable of buttering toast. Of course, someone a bit more knowledgeable would use a butter knife.

Hakuda [B]


I have now entered expert territory and have gained recognition as of of the most skilled individuals in this field. While not a master, an I am more than capable of handling myself in a physical altercation. My deeper knowledge of the theory behind the art and their capabilities allows for imaginative variations of basic techniques on the fly. My knowledge of anatomy allows meto selectively disable parts of my opponent's body. If I leave an opening, it is most likely a gambit to draw the opponent in. I have several advanced techniques.

Hohou [A]


I have now reached the master level. I have now proven myself capable of maintaining super-sonic speedsfor extended periods of time all while using the least amount of steps to achieve those movements. Further more I am capable of using closing or creating gaps, between myself and notably lesser opponents often before they are able to realize any movements were made. Additionally, my speed and reaction times are so great that even when hit I can retaliate almost immediately after making contact.

Zanpakutou Mastery [C+]


(Shikai/Resureccion): 4th ability unlocked, 3rd ability mastered.

NONE PLAYABLE/SECONDARY CHARACTER
Image


Name: Anya Briggs

Age: Unknown

Sex: Female

Species: Arrancar

Classification: Vasto Lorde

Aspect of Death: Regret

Appearance: Anya is tall for a woman, naturally standing at an even six feet in height, and her physical frame is slender and sleek. She does not boast large breasts; her own are ‘A cups’ by human standards. In many ways, she is the ‘beautiful’. Anya has long, lustrous legs that seem crafted by an artist seeking to bring life to some impossible ideal. Her waist, while not particularly curvaceous, is slender and toned. Her hands are without flaw and her nails are always painted black using a chemical polish that she makes herself. But it is her skin that seems to grab the most attention, despite little of it being publicly shown. Touched by a light paleness, her fair skin has never been scarred in her many years of being a Vasto Lorde. Through frequent bathing in the spiritually potent quicksilver lakes, Anya achieved smooth, hairless skin that is the envy of many Arrancar.

From her subtle yet defined jawline to her naturally thin eyebrows, every facet of her image is something that draws breath from anyone who look upon her. Her lips, most often closed due to her quiet, forlorn nature, are slightly plump and always covered in black lipstick; a compound similar to her nail polish.

Her eyes are a crystal blue, almost ghostly in clarity, and are by all means haunting in both the power and the sadness which they contain. Beneath them rest two teardrop markings set upon her cheeks, remnants of her days as a mundane Hollow. These are not tattoos and cannot be removed; they forever marks her as property of regret, itself. Anya's astonishing, brightly colored eyes contrast with her long black hair. Having grown her locks since the day she became a Vasto Lorde, her mane reaches an impressive length towards her lower back. Her bangs are either parted on the right side of her face or straight down the middle, and she has a tendency to let it fall freely down in front of her shoulders. She styles it so that her eyes are always visible, and she has mentally stunted its growth so that it never becomes a danger to her footwork.

The jacket, designed by Anya herself, sticks to the established norms of the Arrancar class, being white in color with black trim. The short cut of the jacket itself stops just at her lowest rib, leaving her entire midsection open to feature the black bands. Aside from a collared neck, this portion of the jacket is designed to rest snugly against her skin, accentuating her slim figure and allowing her to move unencumbered by loose fabric. A small breach in the center of her neck, just above the black front seam that trails slightly to the left of her midsection, shows her small Hollow-hole, resting in the middle of her collar-bone. Behind her neck, hidden beneath her hair, are her mask-fragments, bone pieces of a spinal cord that follow the trail of her own. A black seam at her shoulders separates the long sleeves from the body of the jacket. These cover Anya's arms completely. Once the sleeves reach her hands, a small triangular piece of cloth extends towards her knuckles, ending between her ring and middle fingers.

She wears a white pleated skirt that ends just at her knees. The cloth is nestled between the extremes of loose and tight, allowing her freedom of movement without having any extra fabric that may get in the way during her quick footwork. Beneath the skirt she wears short black wrapping that can rarely be seen. The sash of the uniform is tied tightly around her waist, appearing to be a fourth band when seen from afar. Once she comes closer, it is clearly thicker and loosed than the bands. Anya also designed her own boots with three-inch heels that bring her already impressive height to six feet, three inches. The boots are similarly designed to the normal Arrancar fare, only they reach up to a few inches beneath her knees, leaving a small amount of her legs bare between them and the bottom of her skirt.


Personality: A deeply troubled soul, Anya Briggs teeters on the edge of sanity. Despite her vengeance and the source of her regret having died along with her family, the feeling followed her for the rest of her existence as a Hollow, and it instilled in her a tremendous capacity for grief. Every feeding, justified or not, came with a sense of emptiness. But as a Hollow, such cannibalism is an inescapable fact of life. In a way, existing became something that Anya regretted, and it eventually began to tear her mind apart. Only her tremendous mental powers have kept the insanity at bay. Virtually any other soul would have been rendered either mad or catatonic decades ago.

As a result of the emotional trauma she has endured and suffered from schizophrenia and occasional periods of psychosis. While these conditions began to manifest early in her life as an Vasto Lorde, they became amplified due in no small part to a particular event in her past. During a confusing encounter with a wildly vivid series of hallucinations, Anya killed and consumed her lover. Her heartbreak and regret for that action shattered something deep within her and pushed her further into madness. On occasion, she will hear his voice, feel his touch, or even see him with perfect clarity. Along with hallucinations of the many others she has killed, or even pure products of her imagination, these illusions are a fact of her life. Her response to them depends on her clarity of mind. On most days, Anya's mental powers focus her enough that she simply ignores them, tuning out their voices and walking around their bodies. 

The depression that Anya feels, due in no small part to her hallucinations, is ever-lasting. It follows her through every step of her daily life. For the most part, she is able to contain it, to put on a mask and bring up mental barricades that allow her to function enough and continue handling the duties of her everyday life. However, she cannot hide the sadness in her eyes. Those with the right sensitivity or intuition can always tell that she is a woman who has seen everything she has cared for torn away, and its effects run deep. On occasion, this depression becomes amplified. This can be due to the feeling of regret after feeding or killing, or for no reason in particular.

Although she is not a social animal, she can hold a conversation almost as well as anyone else. She is well-educated and has a deft political mind during her lucid moments. When in the midst of people, she is generally soft-spoken, letting the more vocal ones lead the conversation. But should she be called upon, her opinions are deftly expressed.

Due to her forlorn personality most people believe she's very weak and tend to challenge her, thinking that her mental state would make her an easy target. However, in battle, Anya relies on her centuries of experience to guide her actions, and she is by no means suicidal. At her core, she is an Arrancar, and she would rather destroy those around her than sacrifice herself, even when faced with madness. However, she is not demeaning to those that she fights. She does not taunt, boast, or insult like most of her species. Instead, she fights in eerie silence. Since Anya always feels pangs of regret after destroying her enemies, she rarely sees the need to hold back, knowing that mercy will do little to quench the sadness.


History: As a human, Anya lived the life of a cruel missionary’s daughter in an arid village. She was instructed daily in the strict and unforgiving tenants of her religion. She was shown the meager, poverty-stricken lives of the foreign people that her family had been sent to convert. Their sorrows, she was told, were the fault of their primitive beliefs, and only conversion would save their souls. However, Anya, a strong-minded girl with her own set of beliefs, chose not to proselytize and condemn. Instead, she befriended the people, and as she grew older, secretly instilled in them the idea that their own spirituality was as valid as the ones that her family preached. When her father learned of her secrets, his faith became corrupted. In an act of evil zealotry, he proclaimed that the people were blasphemous, and in the night, broke the levee on a nearby lake. His own daughter drowned along with all of the villagers, including those he had successfully converted. In death, Anya was consumed by regret, having been the catalyst for the horrid destruction of all that she held dear. Her spirit was corrupted by the sadness, and after becoming a vicious, scorpion-like Hollow, she slew her zealous father and vanished into the arid wastes.

Over the centuries, Anya Briggs consumed other Hollow to feed the black depths of her emptiness and grow stronger. But with each feeding came an overwhelming sense of regret. Her consciousness betrayed itself: it craved more and drove her to consume, yet it tore her mind apart with grief after every kill. Her mental powers warped and swelled in a twisted self-defense against the self-destruction, an attempt to keep her mind in one piece as it endeavored to tear itself apart. As an Adjuchas, she grouped with other Hollow in order to ensure a higher chance of survival. Her hunger and fragile mental state forced her to betray many of her allies, and in time, only one had the courage to stand with her. Together, they ascended into the exceedingly rare evolution known as Vasto Lorde.

INNATE PASSIVE ABILITY
  • Previsión (Foresight): Like most Arrancar, Anya's Pesquisa is activated with a pulse of spiritual energy centering near her head. Unlike others, Anya can obtain and organize massive amounts of pinpoint-accurate information with this ability. Each time that she releases one of these pulses, which are imperceptible to others, the amount of data she receives is enough to fill the memory of an advanced mapping computer. This, combined with the fact that she can send up to twenty pulses per second, makes it almost impossible for enemies to hide their spiritual pressure or location from her. Previsión is an enhanced version of Pesquisa that goes beyond the normal level of ‘prediction’ that some talented users are capable of; it quite literally lets her know when her enemies are about to utilize their abilities. By increasing the frequency of Pesquisa pulses by a factor of three, Anya can sense when a spiritually powered individual taps into the most basic level of their Reiryoku (or whatever other form of energy they command). This allows her to know the precise moment when an ability is about to be used, milliseconds before any effects become tangible. Previsión is so sensitive that it actually allows Anya to discern the nature of a unique Cero before it fully forms, just by subconsciously tracking the changing ebb and flow of the spiritual energy. While this technique also grants her a limited sense of when normal punches, kicks, or other mundane strikes are being thrown, its real use is in the analysis of abilities prior to their full manifestation.

Powers & Abilities

Reiatsu [S]


I as I am now, I sit in a realm thought to be the pinnacle of spiritual power. This power is so immense that even Captains feel small by comparison. Titanic would be the best to describe my spiritual strength, where even high-level spells feel almost inconsequential to use. At this point, my full power would be oppressive even to those at a great distance. It would take significant suppression efforts to prevent my presence from being known to all as soon as I appeared on scene. With enough control my reiatsu alone is could used to near lethal effect when focused, without control my presence alone is enough to cause significant harm to anyone unable to resist it.

Strength [E+]


I'm underdeveloped, but no longer puny.I still might struggle to move something less about half my body weight though. An attack using strength alone could knock down someone who of similar size and strength, but would still only be minor in terms of damage. Throwing objects in combat, while still being able to cause harm would be limited to something like the weight of a bowling ball

Durability [E+]


Even at this level I'm still hardly capable of sustaining damage for even a short amount of time. However, I can take a a few blows and keep fighting on.

Endurance [D+]


I could probably use a bit more cardio in my work out, since I'm a little below average in terms of endurance. Trying to last for prolonged periods of time in high intensity situations would be tiring. I'm pretty sure I'd pass out if that happened.

Reiatsu Control [A+]


I can completely hide up to A+ reiatsu; mostly control S; partially control S+.
  • Reaitsu channeling can produce near-full stength blasts with medium range, using less reiatsu in making them.
  • Blast strength is perfectly controlled.
  • Can cast:
    • Shinigami:
      • Kidou: 1 - 91 with incantation
      • Incantation Abandonment: can cast Kidou 55 to 81 at reduced power
      • Mastery: can cast up to Kidou 54 at full power without incantation
      • Two-Fold Incantation: can cast two kidou at the same time, at full power, by mixing the incantations
      • Double Casting: can cast the same kidou at two targets at once.
    • Arrancar:
      • A Novice Cero (Adjucha-power)
      • A Normal Cero
      • Twin Cero (one Cero per hand), both at Normal Cero power.
      • A fully-loaded Cero
      • Bala -- 20 times quicker than a Cero, especially in the load time, but weaker in effect
      • Bala Barrage -- at reduced effect
      • Cero uses less reiatsu to make; strength is perfectly controlled.
      • Cero techniques reach full potential and stability.

Zanjutsu [E+]


When I execute sword techniques, there is clear evidence of someone who knows how wield a blade with some accuracy, power and balance. While no seasoned fighter, I also know at some fundamentals and can prove myself capable of not only buttering toast, but maybe lasting for a minute in a kendo spar.

Hakuda [D]


As a casual user of this art, I have learned enough of the basics to use it in instances where I lack a weapon. My techniques have power, accuracy and balance, but I still lack confidence in my skill, so application is likely to be unimaginative and cautious. I will miss openings and am likely to be drawn in by a gambit. I am not the most likely to engage in hand-to-hand combat, but it is a valid option if absolutely necessary.

Hohou [B]


As I enter expert territory, my mastory of the technique allows me to be considerably fast, even vaguely reaching super sonic speeds. I can maintain high speed movements for long periods of time. While not as fast as a master, I can keep up quite effectively to an extent. Additionally at this point, my application of the technique is highly advanced.

Zanpakutou Mastery [C+]


(Shikai/Resureccion): 4th ability unlocked, 3rd ability mastered.
