Personality
Rey exudes an air of utmost confidence. He is rather playful but not without a delicate sense of wit. He is prone to drastic changes in mood going from happy-go-lucky to a dead stone set rage within moments. He is rather protective of his relations, wife and children; he wouldn't so much as think to kill for them. Other than that he is a rather adventurous spirit, going off to scour the wilds of the menos forest and the dunes surrounding Las Noches. He is even known to spend time in the world of the living to pass the time. Rey also exhibits a number of hobbies ranging for laboratory work to cooking.

History
Pre-Death
Born Albrecht Einzbern von Hollerhorn, Rey Lagarto was the son to a prominent lord and former soldier of a small Eastern European country. His youth was filled with rigorous schooling in many topics ranging from scientific methods of the era to the art of warfare. He was talented with a blade as well as a musket. He was a renowned horseback rider, racing against many and making a name in the surrounding countries. Small wars had plagued his home and the surrounding countries until he was to be betrothed to Franziska Mariella Cassiopeia, Crownprincess of the house of Schwarzburg, staving off more combat in the area. Her home was threatened by many of the surrounding countries unless her father offered his eldest daughter for marriage. Albrecht was chosen because of his military affiliation and his personal merit, although his manners were rather rough.


He was engaged to the Crownprincess when they were merely 13, although were not to be married for quite some time, perhaps as a way to further keep the peace. He met her at a banquet held in the Schwarzburg Castle, where he immediately attempted to win her over with his charm. He was athletic and had sharp blues eyes and fine, nearly golden, hair. The family and governesses played it off as boyish excitement when he greeted her with a rather crass kiss. But it was merely his lack of manners, many of which would be battered into him further by the Princesses' governesses in the coming years. Despite this, he took the task of wedding her in stride and although it was an arranged marriage he tried his best to win her affections and equally give her his affection. Many a time did he try to steal the Princess from the heel of her mother in the early days of their relationship. Although soon after, her mother had passed. The funeral was solemn and it changed her father Hidalgo to the core. He became bitter, resentful, and violent. Although much of this was hidden from view of Albrecht until after the event that led to his own demise.

Two years after their engagement, Hidalgo's violent and heinous treatment of his children led the Crownprincess to take her own life, drowned in a lake upon the edge of the castle grounds. It was a place where Albrecht would find her often, crying or staring off into the distance. Her father merely widened the gap between them, and eventually Albrecht blamed him for her suicide. His bride was murdered by the malice of her father.

With the death of the Franziska came a political torrent which eventually erupted into all-out war over the territory of her father, many surrounding countries as an alliance stormed the Schwarzburg Castle, burning anything in their way. Albrecht led a brigade of troops from his own castle in an attempt to claim the castle before the other armies destroyed it. Although he had a different motive in mind. He intended to claim the life of Franziska's father in a duel. But his brigade arrived too late, the surrounding plots were burning, the standing soldiers slain and Franziska's brother captured, set to hang. The siege had not broken to Hidalgo, her father. Albrecht rode violently into the Castle and the estate held within, scouring the wreckage for Hidalgo.

Finally, he had found the man he blamed for forsaking his bride, bloodied, and fuming before the destruction of his home. Albrecht dismounted his stallion and raised a blade to the man calling out.

"I challenge you."

Hidalgo grinned wickedly, holding up his own blade aiming it at Albrecht. He charged the youth, swinging viciously for his knee, only to be parried swiftly by Albrecht's steel. They traded blows, parrying and dancing in a clash of steel while the fire raged around them. The sounds of battle poured over the field with each stinging ring of their blades. Hidalgo was aggressive, forcing Albrecht on the defense, rarely giving the boy a chance to respond with his own strikes. Each clash left Albrecht reeling further backward against the force until he was able to land an underhanded swing upon Hidalgo's leg. Albrecht's blade dug in and tore through the man's thigh viciously on the drawback. Hidalgo, in a last ditch effort, drew a pistol and fired. Albrecht was not lucky, Hidalgo's shot was true, the ball spearing into his chest with a bright splatter cast against an equally crimson glow. Albrecht's breath escaped him, blood filling his mouth, gurgling, gagging. He stared at the monster that had overthrew him.

"You are not the man...I respected..." He choked on the blood welling up within his lungs before he collapsed, his soul ripped from his body as Hidalgo bled out upon the ground.

Spiraling into death, Albrecht's anger and passion chewed away the chain anchored to him at the base of his left breastbone, over his heart. Regret flooded his mind as he was slowly torn apart and hollowed nearly instantly. The sheer devastation of his thoughts leaving his mind crippled reverted to a base animalistic state, the state of a scavenger hollow. The hunger filled him as he shredded the souls of the men and women slain at the battle, consuming them whole...
Post-Death, Pre-Demasking
Growing vastly in power from the well of souls he consumed even shortly after his death and evading destruction by either Quincy or Shinigami kind, Rey became that of a Gillian following the evolutionary stages of a menos. Decades, perhaps even centuries passed as he fought the dull ache in his hollowed soul, consuming more and more hollows, distinguishing himself from the rest of the bleak entities within the Menos Forest. Eventually, he underwent the transformation into that of an Adjuchas, retaining thought, and speech along with a unique form. His form as an adjuchas was rather humanoid, although it commanded a particularly powerful cero for a menos; one which could freeze that which it touched, preserving his prey.

During his years as an Adjuchas, he was firmly planted within his own hovel within the forest, protected by the crystalline structure of quartz trees. He even began making traipses into the human realm, searching for particularly powerful souls to take. He learned of modern society and built a more human-like intellect and understanding of the material world. He appreciated innovation and created his own little gadgets for survival within the forest; traps and the like.

With this ingenuity, he garnered the attention of the Primera Head Fraccion, Luna Izquierdo. The woman which would bring him under her wing, leading him to become one of the Primera Legion Arrancar of Las Noches. With time, he was trained in the art of spiritual combat, learning new ways to control and use his ever growing power until the point he was to be demasked. The ceremony was performed after the absence of Fuzen Talbain and the beginning of Luna's reign as the new Primera Espada.
Post-Demasking
Rey once demasked was adopted by Luna as a son, fighting as a member of Primera's numero. His resurrección was unlocked via combat with the Primera's Head Fraccion, Arianna once Rey was marked Numero 11. The ensuing fight was intense, even as a Numero he managed to inflict significant damage to the Head Fraccion with his potent resurrección and vicious fighting style. The tundra he created each time he released was rather awe inspiring. Although he bore very little defensive capabilities such as regeneration or hierro. This led to him losing limbs in a fight against another Arrancar, and developing several cybernetic replacements in the Lab of Las Noches. He was an extremely gifted mind in the field of robotics and implants. He managed to rebuild his own body with the help of Arianna, although this led to his soul binding to the cybernetics and altering his Resureccion at its core. His soul bonded to the new nearly robotic body of Rey, and his new release was equally devastating, summoning a massive suit resembling a dark mech around him able to dish out more physical punishment than dozens of men. During this period, the trauma to his body broke through the mental block keeping his suppressed human memories held back during which he learned the Primera Espada was in fact....his bride from another life, Franziska.

With this information, he fought to take her from another Fraccion's wed, 5th Fraccion Daniru. He fought the man viciously, nearly killing him in one battle. Daniru met his end from Rey's real enemy to claiming his bride, Soul Society Defector Nefarius van Sol. This man was Luna's previous husband to Daniru and his insanity and obsession with the Espada led him to attack Rey, who had only recently regained an organic form through rigorous soul infusions and also recently proposed to the Espada whom he bore two children with. The battle that ensued was immense. Nefarius was....simply put, godlike. He systematically ripped Rey to pieces, destroying the veins which Rey's reiryoku flowed. He surgically disabled Rey's ability to release his resurrección and damaged his reiryoku pillar to the core yet failed to kill him when Luna intervened. Rey's brother managed to retrieve him and they went into hiding while Rey's body recovered enough to be considered at the very least a Numero. But during his absence, he lost his position as the feared leader of the Exequias and his position as Fraccion in the Primera Legion. His return was marked with fear in the Espada, as she feared many would try and take his head once again. But instead, he took under a proposition to unseal his zanpaktou and shatter the damaging bonds keeping him under. His soul from the torturous rehabilitation warped again, taking on a more adaptive set of abilities, and a more animalistic form, an avian form similar to that of a Lammergeier which are known for eating a diet of bone. He still intended to wed the Espada and slay the one obstacle in his way, Nefarius van Sol.

Current Events
Rey has only recently recovered from his battle with Nefarius van Sol, his body finally recovering from the damage to his reiryoku pillar stronger than ever.

Powers & Abilities

▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▌ Espada Level
█████████████████████ Offense
█████████████████████ Defense
█████████████████████ Mobility
█████████████████████ Intelligence
█████████████████████ Stamina

Hand to Hand Expert: Rey has proven himself to be very dangerous while barehanded. He can easily catch an opponent's attack with a single hand, perform powerful kicks, and easily subdue opponents with throws and take-downs. In battle, he has shown himself to be tremendously agile and is able to attack from various angles with great dexterity. He can take on most armed opponents and those many times his size easily.

Keen Intellect: Rey has shown himself to be very intelligent. He is also knowledgeable in the history and proceedings of the world. His intelligence allows him to compensate for his own weaknesses better, also when opposed by a more powerful opponent and adapt to a battle situation with greater ease. When pressed into a dangerous situation, he can rely on his brains to figure out an effective approach.

Gifted Scientist: Rey is a gifted inventor and scientist, having created a number of clever devices and techniques to aid him in battle or otherwise. His intellect in this field is evident, as he is able to create and invent devices on her own and further sophisticated research. He is an asset to any development bureau as his work can help accomplish the developmental goals. He knows chemistry, being able to work with chemical formulas and combined them to make new ones. He can also repair advanced machines, sometimes needing to improvise on materials.

High Reiatsu: Rey possesses a high amount of Spiritual Power, one that sets him apart from those below him and is considered common for Fracción and other high ranking Arrancar. Though he isn't at the pinnacle of Spiritual prowess he can still exert large amounts of his Reiatsu when necessary, though not to any great effect. His power makes him better than average but he could still faulter when facing higher classes of Reiatsu than his own.

Enhanced Strength: As a fighter with considerable physical conditioning, Rey has shown sufficient strength to partly block powerful attacks and cope with strong strikes better. His attacks also hold a great deal more potency behind them, easily enough to launch other people of the ground and through objects in the way.

Enhanced Endurance: Rey has enhanced physical stamina, allowing him to endure the hardships of battle for an extended length of time without slowing down. Only when utilizing high speed movement for an extended amount of time will he start to slow down significantly. Even when he has received an injury he can keep going without severe consequence to his battle scheme.

Enhanced Speed: Rey has demonstrated enhanced speed and reflexes in battle. Even when caught by surprise from an enemy's attack, he can react to it with a dodge to minimize the effects. Offensively, he can keep up a quick assault which forces weaker opponents on the defense, as he leaves no openings for them in his attacks.

Enhanced Hierro: The hardened skin of the Arrancar, which is a result of their compressed spiritual power. Rey's skin is highly durable. This allows him to deflect attacks from equal sword-wielding opponents and help combat their releases without having to rely on his own weapon very often. If the Hierro is broken in a location, the would-be damage is significantly reduced.

Sonído Average: Rey is skilled enough in the use of Sonído to keep up with expert Sonído practicioners to some extent. The most use he would get out of Sonído would be to keep up with stronger opponents. He can maintain fast movements for a short period of time, by seemingly taking only a few steps to bridge what would normally be large distances.

Swordsman Inept: Rey is utterly useless with a sword, and is more likely to cut himself than he is to do anything to an opponent. It would require a stroke of luck just for him to land a hit on a moving target, and he lacks the precision to do much against a still one.

High Speed Regeneration: Perhaps his greatest strength, Rey has the ability to quickly regenerate any part of his body save for the brains and internal organs. The repair of damage can start quickly and finishes in two posts time. Despite the many benefits it has, many Hollows choose to abandon this power when becoming Arrancar in favor of greater strength. Although its ability to regenerate is indeed powerful it is not without flaws; the brains and internal organs can’t be regenerated and if such irreparable damage occurs, the body may continue to regenerate though to no avail. In addition, if the body is damage before it had the chance to regenerate or if enough damage it inflicted at one, it can be destroyed regardless.

Zanpakutō

Lammergeier(Bearded Vulture): A red feathered umbrella with a hard, dark bamboo shaft and a fine silver tip which acts as a conduit for firing off cero.

Resurrección: Its release command is Crush their bones, Lammergeier.. A bone crest forms atop Rey's head, with his hair flaring out into a red feathered mane rolling down his back from which two black wings unfold. Up his arms, red feathers creep from hard black claws forming on his hands. Rey's eyes become a bloodshot red hue with a bright white iris and harsh black pupils. His legs become coated in plumes of red feathers reaching down to his now inverted knees and hard black talons.[INDENT]
  • Great Strength: In Resurrección, Rey has sufficient strength to partly block immensely powerful attacks and is capable of dealing with powerful strikes. His attacks also hold great potency behind them, easily enough to launch other people of the ground and through solid objects, as well as leaving deep craters behind.
  • Great Speed: Rey has demonstrated great speed and keen reflexes in Resurrección. Even when caught by surprise from an enemy's attack, he can react in time to skillfully dodge or counter the assault. Offensively, he can keep up a quick and rapid assault which forces most opponents on the defense, as he leaves no openings in his attacks.
  • High Speed Regeneration: Perhaps his greatest strength, Rey has the ability to quickly regenerate any part of his body save for the brains and internal organs. The repair of damage can start quickly and finishes in two posts time. Despite the many benefits it has, many Hollows choose to abandon this power when becoming Arrancar in favor of greater strength. Although its ability to regenerate is indeed powerful it is not without flaws; the brains and internal organs can’t be regenerated and if such irreparable damage occurs, the body may continue to regenerate though to no avail. In addition, if the body is damage before it had the chance to regenerate or if enough damage it inflicted at one, it can be destroyed regardless.
  • Enhanced Hierro: In Resurrección, Rey's skin is highly durable. This allows him to deflect attacks from equal sword-wielding opponents and help combat their releases without having to rely on his own weapon very often. If the Hierro is broken in a location, the would-be damage is significantly reduced.

If death meant just leaving the stage long enough to change costume and come back as a new character,
Would you slow down?
Or speed up?
