Darth Vectis Posted January 28, 2010 Share Posted January 28, 2010 [SIZE="1"][B]“I still can’t imagine why you would want to become …”[/B] The man took a second to properly formulate his next words as not to offend his comrade. The other man simply laughed and smiled widely, completing the sentence himself. [B] “A monster?”[/B] He pursed his lips and shook his head disapprovingly. The word monster had occurred to him, but it wasn’t the exact word he was looking for. It was true that many of the other Taichos and Fukutaichos did think of people like him—Shinigami who had done what was once a taboo and had obtained Hollow powers—as “monsters”, but he saw them as something different. They were Shinigami who willingly took on the title “monster” so that they could better defend their home. But how did one sum that up into a particular title? He sighed with exasperation and hung his head, his blonde hair tussling slightly. His comrade laughed again and patted him on the shoulder. [B] “You worry yourself too much with pleasantries, Urahara-taicho. Regardless of how you would refer to me and my division of Vizard, you know full well why we chose this path.”[/B] Urahara sighed once more, this time in acknowledgment, and leaned against his desk. [B] “Still, Tetsuya… Don’t you ever regret it?”[/B] He looked directly into the Shinigami’s eyes questioningly. He had been the one to oversee Tetsuya’s hollowification. Though Tetsuya was willing and completely informed when he volunteered, Urahara still felt responsible for his predicament. [i]Do you, friend?[/i] Tetsuya opened his mouth to respond when suddenly the doors burst open and one of Urahara’s men, badly injured, fell into the room screaming. [B] “The Hogyuko’s been stolen!” [/B]Urahara ran over and grabbed the man, who had passed out the moment he had uttered his message. He lifted the man up and bolted off down the hallway, heading straight for the medical ward without so much as a word or look at Tetsuya. But words were unnecessary; the faint pop behind him indicated that Tetsuya had already gone on his way to gather his division together and search for the perpetrator. The Vizard squad was a more than capable bunch—but who or what was skilled enough to steal something from here? Urahara’s eyes flickered back in Tetsuya’s direction at the thought. [B] “Be safe, Tetsuya…”[/B] The outskirts of Soul Society… Testuya was swift in collecting his team and beginning pursuit on the thief. Whoever it was had left a faint trail of reiryoku that was easily traceable for his men. The feel of the energy indicated that the perpetrator was definitely not a Shinigami, but it didn’t entirely feel like a Hollow either. Tetsuya’s face contorted into a small sneer at the implication. [B] “Arrancar.”[/B] Arrancar’s were the Hollow equivalent to a Vizard; a condemned soul who had gained the abilities of a Soul Reaper. Most of the Soul Society was unaware of the existence of such beings, but he had had the misfortune of encountering one recently. When his hollowification occurred, one was attracted to his burst of raw, uncontrollable reiryoku and came running to them. The Hollow was easily overwhelmed by the number of Shinigami there, but it was apparent that one Shinigami, possibly up to and including a fukutaicho level, would be hard-pressed to defeat one. [B] “Be wary Vizard.”[/B] His voice was calm and strong and suggested no form of worry. Truth be told, he was excited more than anything else. If the Arrancar had left a trail of spiritual energy either he was too inexperienced to contain it, or he was purposely bating them. He shifted his scythe along his shoulder anxiously—perhaps he would find an opponent worthy of battling his constant release Zanpakuto? His thoughts consumed him until he could no longer sense the trail of energy. He stopped abruptly and examined the area to reorient himself, and grimaced at what lie in front of him. [B] “What happened here?”[/B] Strewn across the ground in front of him where a number of shinigami, robes tattered and torn, blood splattered across the ground. His squad quickly rushed to the side of his fallen comrades and a painful chill ran through their bodies as they examined the bodies closely. Further examination showed that the nearest body was clutching the Hogyuko tightly, though it was coated in a thick white liquid. Tetsuya could feel his stomach churn at this sight of it, the white liquid-- the remnants of a recently formed hollow mask. [B] “These poor souls…”[/B] One of his men muttered from behind. Tetsuya understood the sentiment entirely. His squad had chosen the life of a Vizard. The poor souls were just condemned to it, he thought forlornly. He knelt down and picked up the body easily, his face emotionless once again. He didn’t have time to sympathize with these men right now. He needed to hurry back and return the Hogyuko to Urahara, and hopefully he’d be able to change these Shinigami’s fate. Alright kiddies, I hope you enjoyed the read. 90%of this thread was written up by The 10th. Me and him will be the big wigs on this one, but not the small wigs.............. Anyways, this, as you can see from the opening story, is our altered version of bleach. We enjoyed Vizards and Arrancars so much that we thought we would change up how they came into existence and how their purpose changed. In our world, Vizard's are far more accepted into the soul society, of course their is prejudice against them because they are now part of the creatures the shinigami hunt and release. But, they are still family to many and friends to even more, so they were given their own squad, the 14th division. This division is easily the most powerful force the soul society has. But since they are a new class of shinigami, their power is widely unknown to regular soul reapers and they became the last line of defense. However, Arrancar do exist in this as well. They were created the same way as our Vizards here and they are as hated and exiled as they come. This is a main part of the Vizard job, is to deter and destroy Arrancar. But, the Arrancar have gotten far craftier in their exile and several of them have learned how to look like Vizards themselves, even when they do their release form. Their left over shards of mask are all well hidden from the world, where it be under clothes or to look like ordinary accessory. Since this is the case with the Arrancar and Vizards, everyone who post will post as a Vizard. But, those of you who wish to be Arrancar, send a pm to either myself or The 10th simply stating you wish to be an Arrancar in disguise and where and what your leftover mask piece is. We will make sure to keep track of who is a legit Vizard and who is and Arrancar. The finaly piece of information you will need is this, Aizen and his lackeys were discovered immediately and they were all executed. His plan didn't get to extend any farther then creating the arrancar. But, this caused enough problems that Aizen is a fading memory for the soul society and is focusing on bigger issues at this time. Otherwise, everything has already been explained or is explained in the sign-up right below this. Make sure our Shikai and Bankai are related to one another in someway. Trust me, that is the hardest part of trying to think of new and original Shikai and Banki moves and we look forward to seeing what kind of Shikai and Bankai you kids come up with. Prepare for your Hollowfication. Character [B]Name: Gender: Rank:[/B] Because the members of the 14th squad have immense reiryoku, or spiritual power, the squad is smaller than the others, only containing 10 members.

(e.g. elemental control, necromancy, possession, etc…) [B]Bankai:[/B] Your Zanpakuto’s second release.
