Gotei 13 Operation Headquarters

Welcome to the New reconstructed Gotei 13 Headquarters Building!

Here will be where the temporary base of operations will be executed from as well as everyone's living quarters for the time being.

Grand Hall
The Grand Hall is the room that you first encounter once entering the building. There is not much in this room except an open area, and a stair case that leads to the 2nd floor of the building.
Image
Kitchen
The Kitchen is located in the East side of the building. Entering the Grand hall, you will see a door to your left that leads down a hallway and straight into the kitchen. The food that is located in the kitchen is what food we have left that was managed to be scavenge. There is a fridge, stove, open, microwave, huge island where you can sit and enjoy meals, and even a large table to fits around 30 people.

Living Area
The Living room is located in the west side of the building. Entering the Grand hall, there will be a door on your right that will take you down a hallway and straight into our wonderful living area. The room consists of two long couches with four lounge chairs, two on each end. This is where everyone will be able to go to relax, and enjoy general conversations with everyone.
Image
Living Quarters
The living quarters for everyone is dispersed all throughout the first floor of the building. Down each hallway on the West and East sides of the buildings consist of bedrooms that will serve as everyone's living quarters.

  Operations Room
The operations room is located on the second floor of the building. If you go up the stairs there will be a set of two doors that will lead into the operations room. Here is where the everyone will come together for planning and briefing any operation that is planned.

Captains offices
The other rooms that consist of the second floor will be captains offices. These rooms will be the base of where each captain can go to perform their day to day duties.

"The feeling of being here...inadequate."

A hulking figure uttered as it climbed the steps leading to Gotei's Final Pillar. Each step forward was taken with the utmost caution, or so it appeared. In reality each step brought back a new memory of what was, and soon the harsh comparison with what is. It seemed only disappointment lies ahead. 

"Of all the warning, the pushing to achieve beyond what became our norm. The complacency, the lack of care, the inability to put both heart and soul into one's effort. Everywhere we turn, the results are very clear. It's sickening."

The disgruntled mass of Shinjgami breached the entrance and crossed over into the grand hall. For a moment, the being stood at the door and looked upon the ornate room in disgust. Never content, never happy. 

"Perhaps it would be proper to burn it all to the ground again! The decadence is abhorrent! A betrayal to memory the events that lead us here. Here we stand, one of few survivors, and yet someone saw it fit to grace this wasteland with a posh castle. INFURIATING!!!"

Tensions rose as did anger. At this point now, the short distance between cool and collected, to raging inferno, massive figure and complete and utter inability to ever be content would all come together to reveal the being as one and only one— Solus Solaris. As their anger rose, so did the amount of spiritual energy pouring out of the being. In moments the entire room would succumb the chokehold imposed by the overbearing weight of the Captain's power. As time went, heated passion soon gained form and small embers and sparks of an infant flame began to leap from the surrounding furniture. 
By now Solus seemed intent follow through with the idea of burning the place to ashes, but tranquility found life once more. The Captain exhaled and all traces of the looming destruction ceased to be. 

"If no others will take such initiative, then we must. Zetsriel, though it was decided that such a feat was beyond our collective abilities it is apparent now that we must reconsider that stance. There is but one way for us to evolve beyond what we are now, we must find a way to summon forth the power of Bankai. Every ounce of new strength found is a new way to prevent what happened from ever happening again... For now, take a moment to consider this idea on your own."

It would come in a blur, and seek to lay waste to them all.
In a flash, the beast sought to let loose a calamity crafted by its own hands.
Its sole purpose to leave nothing but charred remains and ash...

Sitting at his desk staring out the window at the remains of the once great capital. Thoughts entered in and out of his head about what could of happened to destroy everything in a blink of an eye. The young captain figure that he may possibly never know who or what could have done this to an entire capital with the best military protecting it so quickly. He leaned back into his chair placing his hand on his chin. "Whoever they are, they will pay for everything."
When the last word escaped his lips, an enormous amount of spiritual pressure came out of no where. It was pressing down on his body to the point where he could not move a finger. With the thought of investigating the whereabouts of spiritual pressure going through his head. Naxel slowly rose from his chair, grabbing his haori, and made his way out the door. The walk down the hallway was quite difficult with the spiritual pressure that was pushing down onto his body. He had never felt this amount of power before, and could only wonder if its an enemy or possibly an enraged survivor. 
Cutting the corner in front of the control room, The Captain made his way over to the balcony that overlooked the grand hall. Naxel looked around to find what looks like an enraged Shinigami that was releasing the destructive amount of spiritual pressure. A small ray of hope entered his mind as this was possibly a survivor of the conflict that engulfed the entire Seireitei. Naxel turned towards the staircase to his right to make his way to the bottom floor. While walking down the stairs, he looked over at the Shinigami and noticed the look of calmness appearing on his face. He knew he could not letting his guard down for a second. Naxel stepped off the bottom step of the staircase an turned towards the Shinigami. He leaned over and propped his hip onto the railing. Doubt entered his mind has his jaw opens to speak.
"Who are you Shinigami? I do not recognize your face nor spiritual pressure."

"It is unwise to ask questions you cannot bear the burden of the answers to. Worse, to be ignorant. A lesson that will carry you far in this world is that a Captain that knows, is a Captain with real power."

Solus turned to face the man addressing them. Before speaking another word Solus eyes began ripping the every aspect of the man apart. His stance, his breathing, his clothes, where he carried his Zanpakutou. As they did the castle and it's decadence, so too would the Captain be subjected to Solus' vicious level scrutiny.

"If it would sate your misplaced curiousity, know that we are Solus Solaris. We are one of the surviving members... Captain of the Seventh Division, but perhaps those words mean nothing now. There are no soldiers to command. The only thing fitting of that title is our power and experience. And you...why is it that you bear the Haori? Such garbs are not given, nor worn lightly, yet there you stand. There are a few that could bear the weight properly, as you should be able to glean from our current circumstances. How are you different?"

Standing in very stark contrast was Solus, who opted not to don his distinctive gear as they often did. Instead they stood bear from head to waist, thankfully sparing the eyes of those unwilling to take in their natural glory. Overall all the Solus only wore enough clothing to cover their legs gauntlets their zanpakutou consisted of in her sealed state.

Despite time changing many things, Solus remained much the same. And in keeping up with the lack of change  Solus let loose words sharp enough to slay an army without missing a step. But beneath the surface was a challenge. The Shinigami would only have one, and in all likelihood only one opportunity to earn the abrasive Captain's respect.

It would come in a blur, and seek to lay waste to them all.

Listening to the man brought great curiosity of whom he may be. Once speaking his name, he himself did not appear familiar to the young captain. A part of his name did come to mind from a man he studied in textbooks that was a former vice-captain of the 7th Division. Naxel knew he heard of the name before, but couldn't fully think from the remarks Solus made questioning his abilities. He examined the man carefully and knew that he had to think of each word carefully as he bared the appearance of a beast. With one wrong wording there was no telling what would happened. 
"It is true that the honor of obtaining a Haori is not one that is just given. But yet, I am one of the last known Shinigami of the 2nd Division. I do not feel the spiritual pressure of my former leaders, so who else is capable of baring the title? Since before my time as a Shinigami I studied the arts of which my division is specialized in. Much more knowledge came to me as I studied at the Shino Academy and have learned to this day."
The words that were spoken were that of calmness, and were carefully thought out. Naxel let off of the staircase railing and turned his body towards the front door. Lifting up his right leg to slowly start walking around as the two were converting. He kept his guard up, and crossed his arms to show that he was going to be no threat to Solus.
"If you want to question my abilities that is fine because it wont affect me. I have no idea who you are which makes me trusting you difficult as well.Yet, the name you bare is one of a man I once read about back in the Academy. He was a Vice-captain if I remember right of the 7th Division. Would you happen to have some relations to this man?"

"Your first misstep," Solus growled.

"Assuming the position is forgivable. To take the mantle no others could or will is something budding leader should do. Stepping up is part of the battle. But that is where your succsses cease to be.

We did not question your abilities to undermine you. We barely did so to test your fitness. Rather, we aimed to rest your character, and how qualified you truly were. Your failure is born from the simple fact of how short-sighted you are. Questioning your abilities does not affect you, that much is correct. However it does affect everyone else."

Small portions of Solus reiatsu started pouring into the room. At first it was subtle, like a lion stalking its prey but soon something far more substantial developed. Before long the Captain's power became like a live, breathing being. It felt as if it had its own agenda, it's own purpose in light, and would partake in snuffjng out whatever life it could find. A true demon, a devil obsessed with the ultimate sin.

"If you were tasked with the burden of protecting this realm, leading and raising up others who will both stand beside and behind you, so much more depends on your abilities. The Old Gotei has failed once already, that must never be allowed to happen again. Not for our own sakes, but for everyone's. We have done our part in the past, and we have already committed to going beyond that by achieving the impossible. True Captain, great ones constantly devotes themselves to self-improvement and further greatness. If you lack that drive, you will fail again and again, and then die."

By now Solus' reiatsu has morphed into wave of understated fury. Like a curse that dwelled on the tip of the tongue, the almost feral Captain's spiritual loomed over the premises in much the same manner. Yet despite the sinister presence it made, it was incomparable to the dreadful peak of power still slumbering in the depths.

"Rejoice and revel in the fact that we will not cut you down here today. If there were others to not only take your place but to go beyond your apparent capabilities you would only be remembered as dust. As we spoke time and time again, Gotei is no place for the weak. We were so easily dismissed as the grumpy monster shouting nonsense, but our irritation was born from the great truths which birthed the calamatity that level our once grand organization in the sorry state that is in. If we do not push, the same fate befalls us twice.

So then, as you draw new breath do so with unwavering conviction and devote yourself towards further evolution. If not, abandon that haori you wear, abandon this realm and all else you find yourself attached to. Those undeserving will erased from history. Call us harsh, call us cruel...if you will, but as we will prove again and again without fail, our actions and our words are nothing more than reflections of the harsh reality in which we reside."

Solus's power retreated, but whether or not it did so like the tide in its waning period, or like the ocean waters before the tsunami remained to be seen. What was clear however, was Solus distinct lack of patience. Yet somehow beastly being was able to draw upon the endangered species that decency was for them and opted to indulge the Captain with the answer he sought.

"That man you speak of was our father. An ant at best by comparison, but perhaps one of the greatest to ever be. His pathetic whimper of a death betrays his accomplishments. He and so many others have all shared the same fate, but there are no tears for them. Only lingering disappointment and desire for better from those still among the living... that is all that death means to us."

It would come in a blur, and seek to lay waste to them all.

The small portions of reiatsu had no effect on the young captain as it started to emerge from Solus's body. With each step it slowly started become heavier and heavier. Not really knowing what was going to happen, the thought of trying to settle this quickly came to mind. Before a thought could enter his mind a massive amount emerged from Solus. Unlike before, this amount started worrying the captain as it grew heavy on his body. Then in a blink of an eye it disappeared. Naxel waited for the man to finish speaking before he responded with an answer. 
"It may be so that I do not deserve the title of captain, or the honor of wearing its haori. The thing is though how do you differ from me?"
His question was asked in a softly spoken voice with a calm mannor that had no tone of disrespect behind it. Upon answering his question his right foot landed a final step, and he stood there facing the door with his head looking out the window that is next to it.
"Like I stated before Solus... I have no idea who you are, and yet nor do you know me. We both have somehow managed to escape what we thought was our fate. You can hate, despise, or even want to kill me. Things won't change what happened either way.  From hence forth, we have to work together for the sake of the once was. Rebuild it and teach our and the next generation the mistakes, so history will not repeat himself." Saying as he turns around to face Solus.
After speaking his mind to the man his eyes grew shocking as he spoke about him father in such a manor. Yet, he knew that it would be best for everything to not even give a respond to his remarks.

"The difference lies in the fact we refuse to wear the haori so casually. We... have our experience— a vast wealth of pain and suffering behind us. Like a blade, we were born and raised by violence. Battle-hardend long before most learn speak their name. Trained by..."

A bit of hesitance with the last statement. Solus then took a moment to reconsider their words and how to precede. Once certain of the path, they carried on as if nothing happened.

"Many of the finest warriors of the fallen era were raised by our hands. We are a remnant of that legacy with a service record unmatched by any. We existed with few peers, and were the first of many Captains to reach this rank without obtaining Bankai before hand. But those accomplishments are but meaningless trophies to us.

What truly sets us apart? ...A curious question..."

Solus calmly stepped forward towards the man. Once close Solus pointed at his zanpakutou and motioned for him to draw it.

"Your blade... use it. Slit our throat right here and now. If you fail to end us, we will slaughter you and everyone else that managed to not have perished already. And when their blood forms a river at our feet, the stench of their death is forever etched into the walls, and their screams heard even in the halls of Las Noches...it is then, and only then that we will burn this place to ashes. Everything, without fail or hesitation will be razed to the ground."

Once again Solus' reiatsu flared, but now there was very little restraint left for them. As it was in the previous, Solus' reiatsu threatened to leave the realm of sanity and any semblance of humanity very far behind. This was no man. In every way, shape, and form Solus was a living, breathing monster disguised as a man. Making matters worse, perhaps the biggest threat to Soul Society's current existence.

"Oh...do understand one thing... should this be nothing more than an overly dramatic test, yet you do manage to kill us in the process...you will have lost a powerful asset in your endeavor to rebuild. Yet, if there is any truth to our words, you will let free a calamity far worse than what Soul Society has already faced. Do decide carefully, Captain. You will not be given much time to think."

It would come in a blur, and seek to lay waste to them all.

A dull look went across his face as Solus responded with the comparison answer. The statement that he made was true in Naxel's eyes even though he knew he just recently self-obtained the title. It continued to not bother the young captain as he knew that only time will tell if he is capable of becoming a true captain. With that thought leaving his mind Solus had gestured for Naxel to draw his blade. Along with his gesture Naxel found his words for fighting to be rather childish in the moments of which they stood. Growing tired of this possibly soon blood bath, the Captain quickly Shunpoed right behind Solus like lightening hitting the ground from a cloud before one's eye could blink. His location behind Solus was within centimeters of him to where both of their shoulders are touching. Naxel raised his arms to cross them, and then lowered his head a little as if he was showing disappointment.

"Solus... the words that you speak are words that I can honestly say I believe."

Naxel spoke as he then lifted his head back up and placed his head facing vertical.

"The thing that I do not believe though is how you managed to become a Captain. Your actions are that of a Child who was abused, and trying to make out everyone you encounter into the people that hurt you."

Naxel disappeared into another shunpo. He appeared on the balcony at the top of the staircase, and was sitting on the railings with his right leg hanging off facing the grand hall and left leg propping on top of his right thigh. Naxel wasn't trying to show off his skills in anyway, but instead was trying to figure Solus out. In his mind he knew that Solus was angry, but that was none of his concern. His main priority was to rebuild the Gotei 13. 

"But today I am not going to fight you. One day will come where we may possibly cross blades, and see who will come out on top. I have better things to do instead of destroying another thing within this Capital. If you are going to help me then I welcome it, but if you wish to not then there is plenty of ruins to take out your anger on in the districts." 

The point had come to Naxel to where this game of Soluss' has gone on long enough. Time that had been wasted was valuable time of which progress to the reconstruction could of been made. A feeling came across the young Captain's skin as if he knew there would be souls appearing in the Soul Society at any moment. Naxel felt that feeling, and continued to sit where he was for the answer from Solus.

Naxel made his decision, and therein lied the vital difference between him and Solus— allowance. Even if it were against comrade, Solus would have never allowed a potential threat a chance to do harm. By avoiding confusion conflict altogether, Naxel showed the very vulnerability partially responsible for the old Gotei's demise. Shinigami were too lenient, too complacent, completely in capable of neutralizing a threat or even the idea of one. 
Solus' antagonizing was merely a blanket a cover to test, Naxel's resolve, restraint, and ability to solve problems and descalate a stituation in a more up front manner if and when necessary. Unfortunately, Naxel only passed the test of restraint. Killing Solus was a misdirection, a shallow veil for the true pass condition— subdue the hostile entity. 
The beastly Captain remained stoic throughout Naxel's response. First, a glimpse of their capabilities. Then the insult or dismissal of validity. Finally, the backdown and retreat. It was routine, a fault in  the many others that had died before this new era. The lesson had still not been learned,  but what was different now was that Solus would not let that mistake to be made again. 
"Complete me... Zetsriel."
To those that knew, the words Solus spoke carried a very specific weight to them. As if spoken in a language unto their own, they meant chaos, the meant ruination, and dread. All of that manifested near instantly once they were recognized by the spirit contained within the Captain's zanpakutou. What followed was a torrent of flames and shadow. They enveloped Solus, embracing the Captain as lover would after months of absence and longing had set in. As intimate as the spiral of chaos seemed to hug the beast of a man, it only lasted for a instance far too brief to be called a moment. 
Once the prelude to insanity had fallen silent, the results of Zetsriel's awakening has been revealed in full. Now, both Solus's arms and legs hand been completely engulphed in darkness. While not initially apparent, it was Solus' hands that the transformation affected mostly. Now with fingers tipped with razor sharp claws, and knuckles covered in spikes a closer inspection would reveal that the treat lied in hand to hand combat. Yet, the shadows were only ever meant to obscure. 
The true capabilities of the zanpakutou when wielded by Solus were grossly underrated by the what was readily apparent. Hiding beneath the surface was a skill set reflective of the monster Solus threatened to be. Each and every bit of Zetsriel's truth was dedicated to pure and indiscriminate destruction and chaos— something Naxel was ill-fated to discover first hand. 
-Solus, before we begin here, do make an effort to limit the carnage. Razing this castle to the ground to prove a point is not a luxury you can enjoy. Consider this a part of your training...you've struggled in the past to contain your power. You now have no choice but to do so.-
Zetsriel's words echoed in Solus' mind as four shadows manifested around Solus in each of the cardinal directions and rapidly took the form of arms. Without missing a beat, the Captain rose all of their hands– the four disembodied ones, and the two attached to them. Then finally in one swift motion Solus brought down each hand, unleashing a tidal wave of midnight blue flames. In the instant following the entirety of the room would be bathed in the roaring flames unless somehow contained. 
The Captain was cautious enough to tone the flames down enough not to avoid obliterating everything in an instant, but not so much to remove the threat entirely. If there was one thing Solus was, it was completely serious. Perhaps not to the extent previously stated, but very much to the point where if left unchecked the damage would be extensive. 

It would come in a blur, and seek to lay waste to them all.

"Burn Ragnarok" In a whisper Aoshi unsheathed both blades from its Saya starting from the Hilt that gave a strong impression of a sword hilt, and the bottom that would seem to be the end of his sword sheath. With his swords cloaked in flames, Aoshi took his first step into the newly structured Grand hall. 

Apparently, after the all out battle with the Quincy and after they fled, a new system emerged between the Shinigami or at least all that was left of it anyway. And so Aoshi sent a fiery waves of flames with much proportionality and velocity to the two captains sighted. A way of announcing his presence? Or a way to test their wits on a surprise attack? Perhaps their reaction to his attack may well prove if they had gotten too old and soft.

The words that escaped Solus' lips that were words that unfamiliar to Naxel. When the words were spoken the young Captain notice a change with Solus as dark flames started to appear from him. Naxel closed his along with a breath of annoyance, and started to focus his reiatsu. With his eyes closed he lifted his right hand along with his index and middle finger. 

"Bakudo #73: Tozansho.

Upon speaking the words of a spell, four blue balls of reiatsu appeared over the Captain. Those four balls then shot towards each other to connect into an outline of a square. After making the outline, they quickly shot downwards and connected into a point under Naxel. The spell that the Captain performed was a barrier of an up side down pyramid. He performed this spell as he knew that with how Solus has been acting he would unleash some sort of power.

Knowing that he was right, Solus unleashed blue flames around the room creating damage all around. With Naxel's knowingly thinking the flames didn't touch him thanks to the barrier spell that he placed around him. Before he could make a thought a mysterious person came into the grand hall with a shikai equipped. Not thinking that things would get worse, but knowing with the appearance of this mysterious person would make that happen. The Barrier stayed up around Naxel for his own means, and to see what is to come. Then, before he knew it, the mysterious person unleashed the power that must of been his Shikai into waves of fire around the room. The Captain dropped his head once more and caught his forehead with his right hand.

"I have no idea who these people are, but I know this man couldn't be from the Gotei 13 that once stood here. He resemble that of an arrancar or quincy with their mindless thinking. Plus this idiot that just walks in an starts attacking. What the actual hell." He thought to himself as he kept his head resting on his right palm.

After a couple of seconds he raised his head, and looked out to the two men along with the burning of the inside of the grand hall. Knowing nothing could be done at the moment he then raised his head and places his hands on the railing where he sat. Waiting to see what was to come next with this situation.

"Slow to act, and but still he acted. Of course the response time will need to be increased dramatically for anything to be meaningful..."
Solus thought as the pale green light surrounded Naxel. Fortunately the nature of the attack allows them to intercept the new comer's attempt at a stealth assault. Though, even if not for the flames, the attack would likely have failed. To use a reiatsu based attack, when the element of surprise as the intent was a fool's errand. Spiritual energy had a way with loudly announcing itself whenever manifested, leaving all but spiritually inept able to detect them. Not to mention the heat of the flames would have been a dead give away. In essence, the makings of a ill-planned assault, executed by an ill-trained assassin. 
For the moment, however, Solus opted to ignore the would be attacker. Instead to chose to address the Captain of the Second. Still, there was a bit of business left unfinished. However before attending to those matters, Solus turned to face the newcomer.
"Captain, perhaps you have failed to realize it, but the difference between you and  us is the simple fact that you are too permissive. You allowed us to unleash our power. While we made no haste in attacking, your response to the threat was far slower than it should have been. Worse, it was light. You aimed to shield yourself from the fires rather than to contain the burst of flames around us. Your priority should be the surrounding area and limiting any potential damage to the structure. Allies could be caught in the collateral and suffer for it. If you are to protect this place you must do better..."
As the Captain spoke, the arms at Solus' 3, 6, and 9 o'clock positions began drifting towards then outer edges of the room. As they did, they grew increasingly larger And odd behavior, but to the well trained individual, Solus was preempting further conflict and had sent out physical barriers to keep potential structural damage to a minimum. Keeping in line with their own advice. It was clear Solus had been in this situation many times.  
"..And so, this you must know. We became Captain because we are not as leniant as you and the dead who came before you are. Any and all threats are confronted with extreme hostility the instant the potential threat becomes apparent, and even before then we do not allow ourselves to be complacent. Our methods here today were merely to expose the same flaws that lead us here. Our forces were slow to act, and the few that did, acted too softy. Much like you..."
The final arm then began to drift to into a position directly behind Solus. Once there it grew to a size just large enough to cover the entirety of their back. From there, Solus continued to speak, however in doing so their eyes fixated on the man in front to them.  Unlike the Captain who faced their visual scrutiny before him, Solus' new inspection was a lot stricter. Rather than assessing the individual's apparent aspects they also considered the surroundings and the distances between themselves and the entity as well as the man's level of power. 
Deriving a general sense of strength based on the attack he unleashed moments ago Solus deduced that he was within the 7th-5th seated range. From there, the many battles and encounters Solus had considered had all jumped into mind. The various strengths and weakness of the multitude of individuals in that strength range has all be cross-references and evaluated carefully. From there, they were not only able to create a general picture of the potential harm the man could do, but could also visualize the man's capabilities...to an extent. The Captain was well aware of the margin of error associated with their method and understood quite well that the man could potentially exceed their expectations. Even still, they made a very thorough effort to assess the situation, despite how understated that effort was.  
"As a Captain, our duty is to suppress, disrupt, or otherwise eliminate any and all hostile entities as swiftly as possible. So far we have been one of very few to live up to that task. When chosen by Central 46, we specifically, were entrusted with two tasks. The first was to become a weapon a living weapon Gotei. Our violent past and lack of the inhibitions most others posses resulted in our recognition as a valuable war asset. In the face of impending danger, this assessment was correct."
By now Solus bent down to assume and all fours position. An unorthodox stance in all meanings for the word, and then taken to an extreme, but Solus had trained themselves to make effective and deadly use of if despite its awkward and uncomfortable appearance. 
"As does a blade, anything in front of us would be stricken down without mercy and with extreme prejudice..."
When not initially taken aback, those who knew Solus knew one thing about this particular stance. What followed could be described as an overwhelming and unrelenting force when understated. Like an animal set into a frenzy, so too would was Solus' intent to rid themselves of the disturbance by any means necessary, and no amount of force was considered excessive with this singular goal in mind. As it was to an animal, it was much the same in Solus mind, a bother had made its presence known and it could not be allowed to persist. 
"The second was raise others who would too serve as weapons of Gotei by any means necessary, those who could not become as much were removed in much the same way as our enemies were. A warrior without means to fight is of no use as a warrior. Central 46 recognized this truth."
Now, Solus only waited. Not for their potential opponent to make a move, but rather for the barrier Naxel erected to dissipate.
"Hundreds of inadaquate souls were slain by these very hand. In much the same manner as the rejects unfit for the Twelfths experiments, the weak before us tossed aside like the dirt they were. The ones that trived, that proved themselves were the only ones allowed reside in the House of the Seventh. Each and every one of them a monster beyond your ability to comprehend, all with one and only only focus: Protect, or die miserably in failure."
Small flames began to manifest from the Captain's hands and feet and licked at them anxiously. Like a starved lion they too starved and lusted for blood. Unfortunately the man before Solus was the target of interest for the Captain's primitive and savage instincts. It was an odd side-effect of the relation Solus shared with Zetsriel's. As a conduit for the Captain powers, she could easily exaggerate Solus' natural abilities. The same concept held equally true for the Captain's mind as emotions were also exaggerated and emboldened by her influence. Fortunately, they had not been provoked enough that maintaining some level of control was still possible for them, but even then that didn't count for much. 
"Regrettably we alone could not ensure the safety of two entrie civilizations, nor could we alone pick up the slack of the others...they inevitably perished in the endeavor. We are proud, however, which is something that isn't said lightly."
"You may call us savage, a brute, even a monster for our extremism, but by all means do so. We will revel in it. But mistake us not for the mongrel you would see us as. Inability to peer beyond the surface is a fault like the others that will kill you and cost lives that cannot that we cannot afford to lose...again."
The hand behind Solus now pointed at Naxel.
"If you ever hope to accomplish anything in absolutes, to surely see this place thrive and survive you will have to become a bigger monster than those that seek to tear you down. Understand that we live in a world of predators, and in a world of predators it is the biggest and most fit that live to see the next era. Even if that means bearing the bearing the burden of watching the old one die."
Solus' eyes lit up with primal excitement. It was clear that their limits were slowly being reached, but the Captain had little intent to act alone. While the newly arrive Shinigami wasn't much of match for them with all things considered, Solus would still require some effort to properly subdue him. Unfortunately a drawn out battle meant greater risk for more notable amount of damage. With Naxel being able to enter the fray the two Captains could more easily suppress the threat and more drastically reduce the collateral damage. This was the ultimate result of their assessment. 
The Captain hoped Naxel would catch on to their slight delay and reluctance to just simply make their vicious effort to blow the newcomer away with an all out attack. Despite their better judgment, and contradiction to their previous statements, the delay had its merits. There were times when holding back was equally valid as a fierce but rapid response. This was one of those times. 
It was a radical and unorthodox method of teaching that Solus best student's who eventually became Captains took to quite well. Though much about Solus was exaggerated, and blatant, and equal amount was understated and subtle. It was these obscure truths that betrayed the image the Captain tried so hard to project. There was very much a method to the insanity, and very much order hidden among the chaos. 
They meant well, however their harsh upbringing made conveying that in most effective manner effectively impossible for them.  Yet, those that understood the truth of their words and actions, and Solus' truth as a being gained from it. It was those individuals that understood that the feral Captain's only desire was for everyone to act with the urgency and caution that this world demanded in its truth. To light the fire beneath the backsides of each and every individual they encountered. Holding back and being too merciful in a world bathed in war was where a warrior failed. The blades they were all given were not the tools of a pacifist nor the tools of passive response. Each and everyone one of them would have to and needed to kill if and when necessary, a truth too few recognized or even lived by. 
Solus differed from many as their very existence came at the cost of another's. That much remained true in the conflicts against the Quincy and the Arrancar. It was either them or us, kill or be killed in the simplest terms. That much held true. When the war came, those who extinguished their enemies lived longer. Those who didn't succumbed to the nature of conflict. Sometimes living meant another had to die.

"You talk too much for a captain" Aoshi said with a feint rebellious tone. He had guessed as much that his earlier stunt wouldn't have worked anyway, but he had to get their attention somehow and it worked. He had their full attention.

Soundless was his step as he halted his movement as almost immediately. Not wanting to get too close to the impending danger. "I am Aoshi Itachi a 5th seat from the 2nd Division and you Must be Captain Solus The Great As he spoke the temperature around the Grand hall began to rise, and with no time one could feel the intense heat around the hall as any form of liquid would evaporate from such heat. Aoshi chuckled as he noticed the other captain inside a barrier; he could only guess that the man creating such barrier was very much as strong as Solus, with the only difference between both captain was the level of experience.

And suddenly there was silence within the hall and all that was left was who to break it.

Like fragments of a broken melody, the sounds of footsteps could be heard approaching the Grand hall of the High castle. A figure in a cerulean attire could be seen making his way past the entrance of the Grand hall but all that could be made at first glance about the man was the eerie smile that crept across his handsome face. The lacquered wooden hilt of the zanpakuto strapped to his waist swung repeatedly with each step made by the figure. Black long hair, soft black boots fitted with a cerulean beige pants; this figure appeared to be the new 5th seat of the Seventh Division... Yuan Wuji.

The 5th seat officer of the Seventh Division let out a terse breathe as his asiatic eyes briefly scanned the entirety of the spacious Hall. Wuji's gaze were fixated upon Solus, the very man he had fought against when he once partnered with the exciting Khazid'hea Kurokami of the 5th Division and when he (Wuji) was 5th seat of the Eight Division.

Though all that was now in the past but the serious battle between Solus and a young individual sporting on a white haori. Coupled with the intense heat of Solus's and Aoshi's zanpakuto made Wuji felt uncomfortable. While not in the mood to approach Solus or the young captain and a puny shinigami. Wuji began moving towards the east side of the hall all while admiring the luxurious furniture of the building as the fight between Solus and the others continued. The fancy lights and blinking colored lights looked beautiful to behold as they glitter with joy while beaming the large hall, however as Wuji moved past the doorway, he arrived at the kitchen. The 5th seat chortled to himself at first; the thought of grabbing a drink was all he could think about and without wasting much time. Wuji moved to the direction of the huge refrigerator and pulled the handle before helping himself with a chilled can malt.
"Hmm.... This place is not bad at all"

He smiled and gulped the liquid down his throat, he exhaled for a moment and grab a cold soda this time with three drinking glass. The Wudang disciple disappeared out of the kitchen, only to appear with an undefined stance at the spacious Grand hall. There was no doubt that he had employed the use of hoho to reach his destination. However, despite being a hoho expert the least of steps he used was indeed befitting of one skilled in the art of hoho.

"Anyone care for a drink"!?

The 5th seat questioned loudly in hope to put an end to the trivial bout between Captain Solus and the others. Whether his actions might very well end their little conflict, Wuji would not dare to cross blade with any of the captains but attacking the other individual wielding a fiery flame would be an option. As a matter of fact, the Wudang disciple felt amaze watching his captain handling two shinigami simultaneously with little to no effort. Having experience Captain Solus's overwhelming assault in the past, Wuji knew that the battle would be more interesting. Regardless, he wouldn't decline to help if Solus ask for assistance.

While inside the barrier everything that Solus spoke of was clearly heard by the young Captain. Every word that was spoken Naxel thought about, and took to heart as they could be of use one day. As he was thinking Solus' voice came to a halt, and Naxel looked over at him in wonder. Something didn't seem right, but Naxel didn't know much about the man and had to think quickly about what he was doing. Then, the voice of the mysterious man echoed across the room reveling that it was a member of the 2nd Division. Naxel looked down real quick in thought to try and remember if he ever seen anything about someone joining the ranks within the short time he assumed office. In the very least, the man was foolish to enter this situation between two captains at a rank below 3rd seat. Blowing that past his mind he finally grasped onto the hilt of his Zanpakuto and slid it out of the holster it was in. The blade was the size of a wakizashi with a beautiful black hilt and a four star shaped guard. This was the only true friend that Naxel knew he had left in this world for the time being. Without hesitation the Captain then rose from sitting to standing with his blade in his right hand. A dull look still struck the captains face while the blade began to glow blue. 
"Disperse, Kemuri."
Speaking the command that triggers his Shikai, he started spinning his blade in front of him and spun it around his right hand. The blade started to stretch and thin out into a rob looking object that would form into his Shikai. The blade continued to spin and its form started to take shape at both ends creating a spear head at one end along with a moon shaped symbol on the other. Once the blade finally took form Naxel grabbed a hold the shaft at the middle of the spear to stop its spinning, and his allowed his Shikai's ability to take affect at the end with the moon symbol. Not really sure why Solus continued to be hesitant, but Naxel had a possible thought that it wasn't coincidence. 
Then, right as he was about to disperse his kido barrier another mysterious man casually made his way across the room as if nothing was happening. Naxel looked at the man and gave him a confused look. He made his way to the kitchen and disappeared to only reappear a few seconds later with drinks. Not really sure that this guy knew what was going on, but Naxel was going to make everyone understand just how serious everything is going to be.
Raising his spiritual pressure to the peak of its capability, he brought back his spear to where the moon symbol end was behind his head and the spear end pointing at the ground behind his right foot. Only then to bring it up and swing it across in front of him to shatter the barrier he had formed. His spiritual pressure emerged from the concealment of the barrier into the grand hall. The power of reiatsu he had doesn't compare to that of Solus', but was strong enough to affect the two members that hold the 5th Seat. Naxel then disappeared into a shunpo to appear behind Solus to where he was located in the middle of Naxel and the 2nd Division member. Running towards Solus, he spun his blade around to where the bottom end, moon symbol end, was pointing towards the ceiling. Naxel raised his left arm commanding his  Shikai Smoke ability to grab a hold to Solus. The Captain figured up a plan of his own that possibly differed from Solus', but also possibly was similar to what he may of had in mind. Once the smoke arm would grab Solus, the Captain would then run in front of him into the middle of the room to stop and start spinning around in a circle. His plan was for Solus to strike both of the newcomers to strike fear in both of their hearts. This typical type of strategy was something that Naxel would not do, but knew if he would of went all out both Captains would destroy this castle.

Sorry guys, I cannot continue in this thread. Aoshi would take his leave now
A soft breeze blew past the Elvira man as he watched the unknown captain release his Shikai and started moving in circles. The gap in strength against both captains was not in Aoshi's favour and to make things worse, Wuji arrived. 

Aoshi and Wuji's paths crossed once before the fallen era were he was but a recruit in training. The swords man had defended him against an all out attack that occurred within the walls of Mandela castle and therefore Aoshi knew the worth of the man standing adjacent to him.

With the odds not in his favour, Aoshi Eljoran N'a'shezbaernon Elvira took his leave, avoiding what would have been a suicide attempt. "Live to fight another day right?"

It appeared that the other Captain wasted little time in picking up on the hint Solus left him. It took some time, but he was starting to realism that they were not enemies...at least not for now. However the rather lukewarm response from him left an entire universe to be desired. The sense of urgency Solus intended to inspire, even if someone so much a sneezed wrong would make the difference between Soul Society's continued survival, and its ultimate demise. It was quite literally a life or death situation, and it was time that others began to act as if that were the case. Unfortunately now, that point had to be set aside for now...
More pressing matters where at hand, though it seemed their resolution would come far sooner than initially expected. Just moments after arriving at their side, the Second's Captain commanded a large hand of smoke with the clear intent to propel Solus forward. As Solus moved the air, they considered the similarities in their capabilities could prove useful in the future but the speculation about the extent of that left solus' mind. The approach towards the target was swift, but apparently not swift enough. By the time Solus arrived, their target had already made his departure. 
"A response mode flaccid than the Captain's...how curious. Perhaps it is some disease that has infected the masses with the inability to act as if anything mattered. As it seems to us now, there is not thing more than an inability to commit to anything in earnest. This sickness...must be purged..."
Solus growled after hitting the ground with nothing to show for it. Yet despite their frustrations, they resigned to the fact that the best possible resolution was found...for the moment. Unfortunately Solus was not one to let the consequences for any and all actions to go unanswered. Though the hasty departure saved him for now, time would inevitably see that the man answered for his actions. 
"A moment too slow it seems... yet perhaps not. This incident will not be forgotten, which is unfortunate for him should he encounter us again in the future. While we will not pursue him, it should be understood that we are not so forgiving..."
Solus then waved and the dark arms hovering about in the room vanished. A moment later, the darkness covering the captain's limbs faded and the gauntlets that once adorned their hands had returned. 
"And this matter concerning the two of us... for now we will offer to meet you half way on the issue and refrain from slitting your throat and simply removing you as the liability you are. So that a more...constructive conversation on this issue may continue.  The gravity of this matter is much too great to simply be dropped, and it would betray the responsibility you have vowed to take on. 
By no means should you seek to emulate us, though we doubt your authorization to do so. However understand that liability must be neautralized. The rather cold response you gave us earlier is the kind of thing that puts us at risk... consider that.

It would come in a blur, and seek to lay waste to them all.
In a flash, the beast sought to let loose a calamity crafted by its own hands.
Its sole purpose to leave nothing but charred remains and ash...

Seeing the attack that was meant for the member of his division was too slow, the Captain stood there and faced Solus. The 7th's Captain continued on with more of his lecturing. It did not bother the young Captain of the 2nd, because anything from a more experienced Captain could always be taken into consideration. While going on, Naxel decided to twitch his hand gently to deactivate his Shikai. Smoke started from the bottom of the spear and made its way up to the spear point. Once making it ways to the top, and engulfing the entire blade, the smoke dispersed and left the small wakizashi that was Naxel's sealed form in his hand. He sheathed the blade, and continued to listen to Solus. 
Finally finishing what he was saying the Captain nodded his head gently with a small sly smirk. Turning towards the door, Naxel was about to make his leave from the building.
"You are right Captain, this is not over. We will indeed finish this conversation another time. Everything you have said I will take into consideration, and learn from as well. We will meet again soon!"
He said as he opened the door to the HQ, and then disappearing into a Shunpo heading towards the 2nd Division HQ area...
Naxel has made his leave:3

"Nice....!"

Wuji couldn't help but chuckled inwardly as his gaze left Aoshi. Though the 5th seat officer of the Second Division had left rather too quick without any word to speak of. Perhaps to avoid the intriguing battle between the two Captains. Indeed it was a wise decision from Aoshi, a decision that best suit the current situation at hand. Even a folly warrior knows his limit and when to pick or choose his battles, in truth Aoshi was no different at all.

Wuji's body twitched involuntarily, he could feel the immense spiritual pressure of the Second Division Captain trying to subdue him. In fact it made him feel uncomfortable and apprehensive, but Wuji raised his own great reaitsu and by pure willpower the Wudang disciple was able to suspend the effect slightly but not completely.

To make matters worse, Wuji could barely hear or listen to the words shared between the two Captains. All he could think about was how to corner Naxel. In mere minutes, the effect of the reiatsu that made Wuji felt Ill at ease faded and dissipated completely. Wuji tried his best to look at the one responsible for his current plight and to know the reason behind why he felt whole again. And to his greatest surprise, Naxel was nowhere to be seen, it was as if his reiatsu had been erase completely. Except for Wuji himself, the only occupant in the spacious hall was Captain Solus. While Wuji seemed eager to greet the great Captain and discuss a few things with him about the development of the new 7th Division Headquarter. Instead, the 5th seat chose to trace Naxel but before doing that he muttered to Solus with a dignified tone.

"Forgive me Captain! I have to go now. We will have a meeting later".

Like a phantom, Wuji vanished with shunpo leaving only the Captain.
