HUECO MUNDO The Environment Hueco Mundo is the dimension where the creatures known as Hollows and their evolved superiors titled Arrancar reside. It's a vast desert laying between the World of The Living and the Soul Society. The entire noted environment of Hueco Mundo is literally a white, endless desert. There is no dirt, there is no grass, and any and all natural water sources are nonexistent. Some may find some ruins or caves where some Hollows may have as a home along with a dead tree or two every once in a while, but for the most part, Hueco Mundo is just a white, endless desert with trees made out of a quartz-like material. Now within the great white desert, there is an anomaly called The Forest of Menos, which is a large forest of seemingly dead trees which houses a high standard Hollow population alongside the also high Menos population. It is one of the more dangerous places within this desolate realm, as the infestation of creatures living within it can easily outnumber and overwhelm any that travel within it unprepared. It is always night within Hueco Mundo, with the lunar phase of the moon always being opposite of that of The World of The Living's. The atmosphere has an unnaturally high amount of Reiastu, allowing the weaker Hollows to easily grow and survive without devouring souls. How to Reach It This dimension can NOT be accessed through known normal means, but instead through a temporary dimensional tear between worlds called a Garganta, which most Hollows learn how to create in order to reach their main food source which is the souls of the deceased. Hollows Hollows are the creatures that make up the majority of Hueco Mundo's population. They are beasts and monsters in every form of the name, and they come in shapes and forms that can vary endlessly. The only thing that one can see as a similarity in each Hollow is that each one looks like an animal in some way, and it can be said that the reason why is because of their hunger which is as endless as the white desert itself, leading the creatures to not only devour souls but each other in an attempt to satisfy this hunger. Although the appearances of a Hollow can change from creature to creature, one will know that they see one through the "mask" each one dons. The mask of a Hollow changes in shape and size, though it is always created out of a bone-like substance and it always covers the creature's face. Although a Hollow will eventually gain a form of intellect as it grows, some gain this quite early, though if one does it is almost always due to the fact that the past life of the Hollow in question was a person that had an incredibly strong desire or ambition, which would allow said person to better adapt in Hollow form to the primal desires they would gain as Hollows. Now not all Hollows actually have their need to devour as one of their top priorities. If the soul of one that holds a strong obsession over something becomes a Hollow, they may very well live in order to continue carrying out said obsession, whether it is protecting someone or something, and there is a chance that intelligent or even mindless Hollows can form groups or packs, showing that some of these creatures can hold a sense of camaraderie or loyalty. The powers of a Hollow may vary as well. When a Hollow dies, the hole it gains in return is actually symbolism of the loss of its heart. The heart of a Hollow is actually manifested in the form of the special abilities a Hollow gains. A manipulative Human can become a Hollow that has some relation to manipulation or control, for example, while a brutish or violent Human may gain a destructive yet basic special ability. Their spiritual powers are also for some reason poisonous to a Quincy to the point where if it enters their bodies it could destroy the Quincy's soul completely, though it is unknown whether or not it is a mutual relationship in this case. The "Ranks" of Hollows There are plenty of "ranks" or classes of Hollows, with the weakest kind being just the standard or basic Hollow. These creatures are usually mindless beings acting exactly like a general predator would act, stalking, tracking, attacking, or dominating others until they have absorbed through devouring others enough power in order to evolve into a stronger class than before. The next rank up would be a Hollow labeled as a "Menos". A Menos is a single entity consisted of the combination of even hundreds of Hollows all mashing up and attacking each other, creating an event of which they will mold together into the creature titled as a Menos, a Hollow that is classified as far stronger than a standard one. The name of the result from this mashup of Hollows is a Gillian, and usually A Gillian, or a Menos Grande, as it is most commonly known, is the weakest form of the Menos classification. In pathetic Human terms, they would be the "footsoldiers" of the Hollows. There are many of them and they nearly all look alike. They look like huge monsters, easily standing at 2-6 stories tall, which is larger than even the largest of Hollows, and they all have white masks with elongated noses and a long black cloak with large, bandaged white feet and white hands with long, sharp nails. Even their tongues are capable of breaking a Hollow's mask, and even though any Captain-level Shinigami can destroy them with ease, they could prove a challenge for a lieutenant-level. They attack in groups and travel to and from the Human world through the use of an ability called Kumon(http://bleach.wikia.com/wiki/K%C5%ABmon). Their signature skills are Cero, Kumon, and Negacion. They have no personalities nor do they have any intellect higher than that of a beasts, making for one of the many Hollows contained within the Gillian's being capable of taking it over, causing it to form a new, unique mask, which is when they are able to have the chance to become an Adjuchas class Hollow through cannibalizing other Hollows, even Gillians. The Gillian's name typically means "Lowest Great Hollow" through the use of the name given to it in Japanese. The Adjuchas class Menos, whose Japanese name means "Intermediate Great Hollow", is the second class of the Menos. They are smaller and far fewer in number than the Gillians, though they are also more intelligent and powerful than a Gillian as well. An Adjuchas is a solitary creature, with them rarely creating groups, though they have the ability to be able to challenge an average Captain to battle. Their appearances can vary greatly between bulky Humanoids to animal-like forms such as Grimmjow's Adjuchas form. Their signature abilities are the Cero, Garganta, and their own individual powers and abilities. An Adjuchas is in the stage in which they must devour more Hollows or else the other Hollows within its mind will take over, reverting its form back into a Gillian permanently. Both the evolution and the de-evolution of an Adjuchas is stopped should any piece of them be bitten off by another Hollow. The Vasto Lorde is the strongest classification of Menos. Their Japanese names means "Highest Great Hollow" and they are the cream of the crop. They are the highest level of evolution and the strongest non-Arrancar Hollows in Hueco Mundo. They are roughly the same size as Humans in form and the number of Vasto Lordes that actually exist can be counted on one's hands, making them the rarest Hollows to exist as well. The combative capabilities of a Vasto Lorde ranks above that of the average Captain, making them incredibly high threats when they appear. It is quoted in the canon Bleach universe that if more than ten Vasto Lorde Hollow were to appear under the command of Aizen, the Soul Society would be doomed. Due to their rarity, not much is actually known about the Vasto Lordes other than that they are extremely powerful and extremely rare. Available Powers of a Hollow Soul-Body Separation- In order to prevent abuse with this ability the ability of Soul-Body Separation can only be used after the opponent is defeated with the permission of the opponent. It is basically a technique in which a Hollow can force a person to separate their body and soul, where the soul would still be attached to the body via Chain of Fate meaning it can still be saved should the Hollow not devour it. Now with stronger Hollows, they have their own unique powers and abilities which they may use in unison or as a replacement of these general abilities, but these are the general abilities each Hollow could learn or even specialize in. A Hollow gains the energy to use these abilities via having devoured other souls, though smaller Hollows could get their energy from the nourishment of the atmosphere when in realms with a high concentration of Spiritual energy, such as Hueco Mundo. Acidic Touch- When a Hollow grabs a Human, the spot grabbed is burned as if acid was poured on it. These wounds allow the Hollows Reiatsu to seep into the person, causing the victim great pain and suffering. These wounds can heal if given enough time and it is currently unknown if it works on Shinigami and other Spiritual beings. Cero(http://bleach.wikia.com/wiki/Cero)- A Cero is a highly powerful technique which can be described as a powerful and swift energy blast which can be fired from various body parts, such as the mouth, tongue, fingers, or hands. Only the Menos class Hollows, Arrancar, and Visored have been witnessed using it. With the exception of a few Cero Techniques and users, and that means a rare few, the Cero requires time to be used efficiently, thus requiring a disabled, non-attentive, or still enemy in order to be able to fire it accurately and make it hit. Garganta(http://bleach.wikia.com/wiki/Garganta)- A Garganta is a means of teleportation to and from Hueco Mundo. Through creating a tear between dimensions, a Hollow can travel to and from their own location to another, allowing them to be able to enter The World of The Living where they can stalk and devour souls or even living beings. It is overall ineffective in combat though, as after it is opened one would have to first solidify the whirling torrential energy so they can create an actual pathway. Negacion(http://bleach.wikia.com/wiki/Negaci%C3%B3n)- It is essentially a process of which a field is generated in order to save other Hollows. Only Gillian class or Menos Grande level Hollows have been seen using it and Espada hold a cube-shaped device called Caja Negacion, which generates a Negacion field used to trap or punish their subordinates. High Speed Regeneration(http://bleach.wikia.com/wiki/High-Speed_Regeneration)- I worry when I include this, as I know there are some that wish to instantly have released Ulquiorra's level of regeneration at even the levels of a standard Hollow. High Speed Regeneration is the ability to regenerate one's wounds quickly with the exceptions of the destruction of the head or any vital organs. Essentially no Arrancar even have the level of High Speed Regeneration Ulqiorra had, and usually using it would cost energy or stamina. Most Arrancar and Hollows also sacrifice using this ability in order to gain more power, making them unable to use it at all. *Kumon is not included due to it being Menos Grande only, with not even a device version of it being available. *If anyone abuses High Speed Regeneration to the point of bullshit they will be executed. *Abuse of Soul-Body Separation will result in immediate execution. *There is no more tolerance for abuse of High Speed Regeneration at all. Any offenders of it will be swarmed. The Government of Hueco Mundo There is no truly established government in Hueco Mundo. Within this world built for the weak to wither away and die and for the strong to strive and grow more powerful the strong are the leaders. Only the strongest within this realm can be called a leader or a king, and even then the strong will have to watch out, for surely with more power comes more greedy usurpers waiting to snatch it for themselves. The weak or those that haven't gained enough strength to be considered strong usually dwell beneath the sandy surface or remain somewhere away from the open. LAS NOCHES The Environment Las Noches, which is Spanish for "The Nights" and the Japanese name of it is "Hollow Night Palace", is a literal fortress. It is the crown of Hueco Mundo and while in the past it was the home of armies of Hollows, today it is the home of only Arrancar. It is equipped with its own detention centers and medical wings and the main building has a domed ceiling, the ceiling of which currently is cracked and shattered from the recent invasion by the Neo-Reich. This massive fortress can be seen for miles, and it consists of a main building with a domed center surrounded by several large towers and smaller buildings. Atop the dome are five smaller towers, which contains areas such as the Espada meeting hall. The main building is colored white. It is a large structure, even as large in not larger than the Sereitei in the Soul Society. Inside the dome of the main building is a simulated sky made to appear the same as The World of The Living. Due to their immense power, Espada ranked four and above are forbidden from releasing their blades within Las Noches, and they are also forbidden from using Gran Rey Cero within Las Noches as well. The different noted parts of Las Noches can be seen here (http://bleach.wikia....wiki/Las_Noches). Arrancar The Arrancar are the elite of Hueco Mundo. They are essentially the more Humanlike form of Hollows, creatures that have tore off their masks in order to gain power at the cost of said power being sealed into their own blades. Their names mean "To Tear Off", in order to symbolize this painful process that is a gamble between them becoming Arrancar or failed Arrancar called Imperfect Arrancar. The government that lies within Los Noches is ruled by Arrancar, whom of which label themselves as Espada and Fraccion. Imperfect Arrancar are still more powerful than Hollows, though they're weaker than standard Arrancar. They are, in all sense of the word, failures. An Imperfect Arrancar is one that gains power, takes the gamble of ripping off their mask, and fails, leaving them as scarred Hollows that have gained more power, though lost the potential to gain even more as a result, not to mention they end up becoming more beast-like in appearance instead of more human-like, with their faces still retaining Human shape. Government Los Noches and, to an extent, Hueco Mundo is ruled by the Espada. The Espada, or otherwise known as the Ten Blades, are the top ranked and most powerful Arrancar around. When one is an Espada they are the top of the food chain, the apex predators of Hueco Mundo. Each Espada is recognized through a tattoo placed somewhere on their bodies, the numbers ranging from zero to nine. Each Espada can place a number of Numeros under their command. This is called a Fraccion. There is a hierarchy among the Espada, where higher ranked members can give orders to the lower ranked members. Each Espada has their own quarters in Los Noches that suits their tastes, whether it is a palace, a tower, a meditation room, etc, each quarters an Espada owns suits their needs or represents them in some way. The Fraccion are Arrancar that serve a specific Espada. Their numbers can very from one to many, and generally they are seen as above your average Numeros. The Numeros are Arrancar that were recently developed from Hollows and given a two digit number starting from eleven. The number doesn't indicate the strength of the Numeros, but their birth. The Exequias are an execution division responsible for executing any rebels or intruders that are in Los Noches. In a way they are a police force of sorts. The Espada follow two rules on top of any other rules or laws that may be established: 1) The Espada ranked fourth and higher must not release their Zanpakuto within Los Noches. 2) No Espada are allowed to discharge a Gran Ray Cero within Los Noches. Available Powers of an Arrancar Bala(http://bleach.wikia.com/wiki/Bala): A faster though weaker version of the Cero. It can be described as a technique where hardened Spiritual Pressure is fired. Cero(http://bleach.wikia.com/wiki/Cero)- A Cero is a highly powerful technique which can be described as a powerful and swift energy blast which can be fired from various body parts, such as the mouth, tongue, fingers, or hands. Only the Menos class Hollows, Arrancar, and Visored have been witnessed using it. With the exception of a few Cero Techniques and users, and that means a rare few, the Cero requires time to be used efficiently, thus requiring a disabled, non-attentive, or still enemy in order to be able to fire it accurately and make it hit. Descorrer(http://bleach.wikia.com/wiki/Descorrer): Technique used by Espada level Arrancar in order to open a void between the Living World and Hueco Mundo, thus creating a Garganta. Hierro(http://bleach.wikia.com/wiki/Hierro): A passive ability of which an Arrancar's outer skin can serve as armor. High Speed Regeneration(http://bleach.wikia.com/wiki/High-Speed_Regeneration)- I worry when I include this, as I know there are some that wish to instantly have released Ulquiorra's level of regeneration at even the levels of a standard Hollow. High Speed Regeneration is the ability to regenerate one's wounds quickly with the exceptions of the destruction of the head or any vital organs. Essentially no Arrancar even have the level of High Speed Regeneration Ulqiorra had, and usually using it would cost energy or stamina. Most Arrancar and Hollows also sacrifice using this ability in order to gain more power, making them unable to use it at all. Pesquisa(http://bleach.wikia.com/wiki/Pesquisa): Arrancar's ability to measure and locate Reiatsu. Ressureccion(http://bleach.wikia.com/wiki/Resurrecci%C3%B3n): Releasing the core of an Arrancar's ability sealed in their ZanpakutÅ to regain the original powers of their Hollow form. They often take on a form closer to a Hollow than a Human after performing ResurrecciÃ³n. It is basically the Bankai of an Arrancar. Sonido(https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=2&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwi7odfOypvKAhWJ0xoKHasdB_IQFggjMAE&url=http%3A%2F%2Fbleach.wikia.com%2Fwiki%2FSon%25C3%25ADdo&usg=AFQjCNF8Pnc_HvHIMC-XVA62iF8Q7V4Xzw&sig2=1pBE3jQW4bXJQt4ZeaP32w): Basically the Arrancar's Flash Step(Shunpo). Special Notes: SEGUNDA ETAPA IS RARE TO THE POINT WHERE AT THE MOST THREE ARRANCAR SHOULD HAVE IT, AND EVEN THEN NO ONE SHOULD IMMEDIATELY SPAWN IN A CHARACTER KNOWING IT Feel free to post bios/apps below. Please don't post any memes or ooc comments, instead direct anything relating to the description to me in the PMs or IMs. Post them down below then you're pretty much labeling yourself as an imbecile that can't even follow directions, or a cunt, it honestly depends on who you are. On top of that I'll be drinking a bleach martini every time you do as well. Roster:
It is dark within the Forest of Menos. It is dark not only because of the large tendril-like trees protruding into the blackened abyss above, or the slowly moving Gillian-class Menos mindlessly moving about, either doing nothing at all or attempting to devour one another, but it is dark especially because of how a certain creature sees things. Some have been long accustomed to the surrounding darkness and the many surrounding and occasionally moving obstacles around them, but not this one. This one, while lurking about in the darkest of shadows, keeping out of sight of its prey, had trouble seeing. It wasn't used to the new environment it had arrived to so recently nor the feeling of danger all around it. It was not used to having the way of things flipped around on it, and it no longer became the hunter, but instead the prey. The head of the Hollow turned quickly. There, just meters away, a branch snapped. While it would be quite normal for a branch to snap in any other setting, it was a clear indication in this one that it had been sighted once more. It had to move or die, learn how to hunt the hunter or be hunted, become stronger or become food for another. Hind legs would push off the ground, accelerating the four-legged Hollow forwards into the forest, where it would just barely dodge and weave through the surrounding trees, trying to get away from its chaser or at least figure out a way to turn the tides on it. Gillian-class Hollows from above roared as they devoured one another or even other passerby Hollows, and throughout this conflict this four-legged creature, smaller than most with the skull of a rhino, would propel through it all, hoping to find a way to get away from the immediate danger it was in. Soon it would reach a clearing within the forest, where a ledge acted as a dead end of sorts, and the trees would be closer together, basically guaranteeing that the smaller creature would crash if it tried to enter them. It looked around, growling. The yellow eyes it possessed darting from side to side, scanning the area, almost as though it was able to process the meaning of fear. It saw nothing, heard nothing, and as a result the muscles would relax, though only temporarily before a clawed hand grabbed a hold of the horn attached to the skull, lifting the creature's dog-like body off the ground and into the air. "Well well, what do we have here.." The unknown captor humorously said to itself before letting off devious chuckles that echoed throughout the clearing.
Fionarro D'angelo, espada 5, gracefully strides through the halls of the palace he resided in. Las Noches, a magnificent fortress belonging to those whom had risen to the heights of gods with in the eyes of their lesser hollow and arrancar brethren. Fionarro was on no mission in particular other than to enjoy what little free time he had been granted. He steps out onto a balcony and looks out into the distance of Hueco Mundo's never ending desert hell. A sigh escapes the espada's lips as his hand rests on the marble railing before him. "I cant place my finger on it." He whispers to himself, "But it feels as if there is a storm coming." He of course did not mean this to a literal extent as Hueco Mundo had never had any weather other than still,cold dark and boring. Gripping the counter a moment, he stares at the sand duens in the distance. Recallnig the recent reveal that an entire army of unholy experiments had been discovered that way and the espada have not yet been brave enough to act on it forces anger to burn in the back of his throat. "That decision will be the death of us, brothers and sisters,vacant of our hearts, the decision to allow them the first strike could well be our undoing." The moon shining ever so dimply on this particular night.
