|Subject Post 1Subject: Samuel Nobles, the true Linch Thu Feb 26, 2015 11:30 am|| |
» Name: Samuel Nobles
» Titles:Founder and Leader of Sabers, The Linch, Founder and Leader of Watchers, Developer of Heavens
» Appearance Age: In gigai around 17. Outside of gigai can't tell.
» True Age: He is born in 1643.
» Gender: Male
Affiliation/Rank: Sabers, Vanguards
» Appearance Description: In gigai: The gigai, of his, looks exactly like he did, before merging with the hollow. The male wasn't tanned, because he was mostly then working in a narrow, small room without windows as a clerk. His body isn't muscled, but it isn't fat also. The males eyes are in deep, brown color, while hair being ash grey. Around his neck and pentagram, made of twigs, is always hung in a leather string. The clothing varies from t-shirts with different texts, to long, black coat and black army boots. All of them are infused with a special liquid, so the clothes wouldn't get destroyed, when the male releases his destructive spirit pressure.
Spirit Form: Samuels body is almost eight feet tall, with over lengthened limbs and fingers. His skin is mix of dark brown and black. It looks dry and is tightly stretched along his bones and muscles. A pair of long, black bat wings merges from his back and a serpents tail can also be seen. The only human-like feature is the males head. It looks completely unharmed, with only difference in the eye color. In the place of regular, round pupils, he has a black pentagram in them.
Even if Sam had been pretending to be a protagonist for couple of centuries, in heart he had always been a true antagonist. While being a regular human and working as a account man, he always was trying to find way to cheat something out of the little company he was working. All that was only to better sustain himself and his sister Margaret.
Later on this darkness in his heart formed into something more purely evil. When his sister was sentenced to burn on stake, Samuel seeked revenge on to the city. He craved to see every one of those eyes, that realized the truth, they are going to die. After, the male even more enjoyed moment, when their victims souls were absorbed inside himself. Growing stronger, the ways he killed changed. If in the start those who died from his hand, experienced quick death, then after some time Sam enjoyed to watch, let his prey know, that every moment of his life could be his last. And then he killed them, when they were at the peak of their despair.
After becoming a shinigami, he learned how to lie, pretend and create illusion of friendliness. The male was hard working, showing the devotion. Sam knew how to make a good impression and loved seeing how people fell for it. With time he created and mastered leaders and teachers skills, what helped him to raise high in his colleagues eyes. This made easier to get sacrifices for his projects.
After leaving, or better say escaping, Soul Society, Samuel Nobles returned to the world of the living. Now he didn't hide anything of his evil, sadistic nature. Experimenting with life, killing and manipulating, he was ready to do anything, just to reach his goal.
From this we can come to a conclusion, that Sam is evil, manipulating and power hungry man, who has no dignity for life. In same time we need to remember the cause of this, his sisters death, and that maybe shows about the male, that there is something more under the vicious Samuel Nobles.
Other skills and powers:
The power of Linch: Project "Linch" was something, that Samuel realized right after returning to Europe. He heard a legend about mortals, which were capable to divide their bodies and souls, but still keep connected to them. First, the male did a quick research, what thought him, that it was just a legend, but gave the male inspiration, how to compensate his extremely weak body. By devoting decade of work, Sam managed to bend and twist his actual core of soul, so gaining a semi-god like immortality. Now his being in separated in two different halves, mind and soul. While his soul, sealed within a kidō, lies in the bottom of Atlantic Ocean, guarded by his made Davana, the males mind rotates around his zanpakutō.
In such form he had a power to gather reishi and create a artificial soul-body. With it, Sam can access all his powers and the nigh-infinitive reishi source. The limitations is that he can only create exact copies of his original soul body. When Realm of the Living wasn't so full of reishi, Samuel could remake himself two times, before tiring and forced to return to his zanpakutō or Soul Core, but in modern days, the male is capable recreate his body up to six times. In Soul Society or places like that, he can create limitless bodies, so becoming almost immortal. The only way how to stop him, would be by draining his energy or sealing his mind in a object or so. If destroyed individual limbs, like arm, leg or head, he can just renew it and it doesn't tire him, as renewing the whole body. It should be noted, that while this Soul-Body holds the aspects of a regular soul, it is more fragile, even for a powerless human. He can create only one body at the time.
Swift feet: Because of his spirit bodies fragile state, it was a necessity to advance in his capabilities in dodging. Using the fact, that the males body was so thin, light and his bones were empty, he can reach a speed, that surpasses one with master skill in shumpō, sonido and so. The drawback for this speed is that, in movement, if hit, Samuel receives even more damage to his frail body, if he would just stay still. This drawback doesn't apply, if he is in gigai, but also the males speed is then in masters rank.
Sea of Power: In years, advancing his skills further and further, combining it with his trait to devour defeated souls, Samuels reishi pool had grew in a almost infinitive amount. His zanpakutō, and few other, who had faced him and survived, even said, that it would be enough to form another Soul Society with all its inhabitants. In the same time it is funny, that he can't use it, thanks to the hollow inside him, to enhance his body strength or durability.
Rain of Influence: The males spirit pressure forms into black clouds, which he can then manipulate to move where Sam wants. These clouds can fill the air space of 5 km in radius and even more, if used in a area of high reishi concentration. When the clouds had filled the sky, where Nobles wants, it starts to rain. These drops can be infused with any kind of kidō effects, like, rain, that covers the target in protective shield, drops full of electricity blasts or be fused with his hollows devastating, erasing spirit energy. Not only that, the main task for these drops is to suck in the environment and, maybe, weak enemies, to turn the battle field in his favor.
This merging makes the concentration of reishi in objects much greater, creating the feeling that actual physical objects are made of pure reishi. This trait of the ability allows Sam to increase the times he can recreate his body to 40. This also allows the male to more freely manipulate with his kidō, making them come from different places.
For this ability to work, Samuel needs to concentrate and let his spiritual pressure to flow for a duration of one post. In that time he mustn't receive any damage. If he does, everything needs to be started all over again. The rains effect lasts 10 posts in Earth Realm and 15 in Hueco Mundo or any that kind of Realm.
Eishōhaki (詠唱破棄, Incantation Abandonment): A class of Kidō Incantation where the Kidō practitioner forgoes using a spoken incantation at all. While it decreases the time needed to release the Kidō, it drastically weakens the spell. While anyone well versed in Kidō can use this technique, it is most effective when done by a skilled practitioner, otherwise the spell could utterly fail (e.g. explode in the user's face). The most skilled experts are capable of using this technique to amazing effect.
Nijū Eishō (二重詠唱, Twofold Incantation): a class of Kidō Incantation where the Kidō practitioner mixes the incantations of two entirely separate Kidō spells together to save time and confuse their opponent at the same time.
Kōjutsu Eishō (後述詠唱, Spoken-After Incantation): A class of Kidō Incantation where the incantation is recited after initiating the spell in order to power it up.
Ouick-cast: By sacrificing a larger amount of reishi for a kidō, Samuel can cast it four to five times faster, then usually it would take to form the kidō.
Kidō crafting master: With years working with and all about kidō, Sam had learned how to create completely new kidōs or how to upgrade existing ones. His highly intelligent mind can do these things even in minutes, when the need is great, so combining this with quick cast and eishōhaki, for others it may look as he have a huge sort of abilities.
Hell Link: Actually, thanks to the deeds Samuel Nobles did in his life, he should reside in hell, after dying, but thanks to becoming a shingami, the man didn't. Still, you can say, that he is branded for it and this brand gives him some sort of connection to Hell.
In years Nobles learned how to use this connection, with help of his zanpakutō, and gained a little control over it. The male could summon Hell Gate, take over one of its early guardians and create seals to lock some unfortunate soul in Hell. In the same time he needs to be quite careful not to use this link too much, because it can also backfire at any moment and take him to the place he belongs.
Grand Master Shikai: Grand Master Shikai: This is often known as the absolute pinnacle of a Shikai. When a Shinigami is able to reach the status of Grand Master in their Shikai, they have full control over almost every single function of their release form. This means they possess every fiber of knowledge, every possible limitation and know the mechanics of how their Zanpakutō functions like the back of their hand. This will result in a massive burst in augmentation on par with a Bankai, extremely complex abilities and immense levels of spiritual energy to radiate from every pour of the Shinigami. It is why some Grand Master Shikai have been known to easily cut through some weaker leveled Bankai's beneath them with the utmost precision. Therefore, a Grand Master Shikai will be considered a Legendary Shikai of sorts by those whom are able to wield them. Henceforth, by obtaining the tier level of 0-5 to 0-4, a Grand Master Shikai will be made possible to those Shinigami who are able to make it to this level of power. They also will have removed the need for a post duration; as they have to take a sufficient amount of damage to be forced back into their sealed state OR lose a good amount of spiritual energy. Making them quite the formidable foes to deal with in the line of combat when these release forms are unleashed against all those who dare oppose them. The Second Release awaits you with open arms, at this point.
Grand Master Bankai: Upon reaching a Grand Master control over Bankai, most Shinigami consider these to be the absolute legends of Bankai. For, they are essentially at the pinnacle of a Bankai's potential. Which means, they have entered into a realm of power where fusion with one's Zanpakutō is entirely possibly and they will be able to unify with it if they go through the proper training needed to unlock a Shikōkai. This also translates into the fact that they have enough energy to sustain their Bankai for such copious amounts of time to where it can be managed for up to forty post in some cases. However, as with all of the previous Bankai forms before it, there will be such abnormalities and exceptions to this rule. Such as in the case of Shadin Yuudeshi's Bankai; because it gives him such a major boost in power overall and consumes so much spiritual energy through every waking moment of it's release, Shadin has a much shorter duration period of holding his Bankai than others in exchange for a dramatically increased state of power over other peers in the Grand Master category in Bankai. At any rate, in most cases of a Grand Master Bankai, they'll even be able to receive anywhere from a ten to twelve times increase in their overall attributes, racial skills, powers and even their intelligence and reaction times. Making GM Bankai's something to be greatly feared by not only SHinigami, but other races as well. For essentially, they are one with their Bankai and to them it is simply a state of being at this point as opposed to some difficult challenge to ascend to. Henceforth, they have ABSOLUTE control over their powers in Grand Master Bankai and have full knowledge of how to use every last ability of this perfected Bankai; for all intents and purposes.
» Zanpakutō Name: Margaret
» Zanpakutō Spirit Appearance: A young girl, maybe 12 years old, maybe 13, but that would be the oldest you could give her. The girls skin is only a bit darker, then Samuels and, if looked closer, few burn marks could be seen on her face. If talking about it, the spirits cheeks are quite sharp and looks maybe a bit too matured for a girl her age. Her eyes are big, chocolate brown and lips, small and brightly red. Her hair are long, black and almost reaches the ground.
Margarets clothes could be called simple and plain for 17th century. She wears a black, long skirt, that stops at her ankles. A grey shift is wore on top, enclosing quite tightly the girl. A white, large collar is worn, hiding mostly of her neck. On a leather strap around her neck, a pentagram, made out of twigs, hangs.
» Zanpakutō Spirit Personality: Cold, Margaret had always been cold to people around her, never letting anyone to get close her. The girl will tell, what she thinks of you and usually it is something hurtful. She thinks lowly about everyone, except Samuel. You can say she enjoys only two things, huring others and bringing joy to her brother and master.
As a zanpakutō, she reveled her name quite fast to the male and let him use her power quite freely. The only thing was, that sometimes she asks for payment. Like, for example, she demanded a town to be sacrificed for her, before the male could gain bankai. Margaret is protective against the male and even over-protective at the moments. She gets jealous fast, but that Sam is using time to time, when it seems to be in his advantage. The zanpakutō wants that she and she alone to be praised by him. Others must die.
» Inner World: A village or a small town. Dozen or so houses are built in a perfect circle, the front doors facing the center of this circle. All homes are made of grey boulder rocks and roofs are made of hey. Smoke is coming from every chimney and smell of burned meat can be felt strongly in the air. Around the city a burned forest could be seen, black smoke still raising from it and filling the sky in black smoke.
In the center of the town stands Samuels spirit, Margaret. Books, scrolls and other things, like parchments can be seen around her and she is always reading one or another book. When Samuel always tries to get closer, she snaps the book close and gives the male a loving, warm smile. If someone would look closely on what she is sitting on, One would notice, that things, which in first moment seems like white rocks, actually is skulls of different size.
Sealed Zanpakutō Appearance: A regular katana with black hilt and steel blade. A pentagram can be seen in the place, where should be the purification symbol.
»Sealed Abilities: Boost reishi pool and casted kidō strength by 1.5 times.
» Release Phrase: The Witchhunt has returned, now hex them Margaret!
» Shikai Appearance: The blade looks like made of black charcoal and sends out small wisps of black smoke. Slight smell of burned meat always follows him.
» Shikai Abilities:
- Reishi Boost: The males whole reishi is increased by fifteen times and replenished, when activating shikai. Others buffs, like in speed and strength, are negated.
- Kidō Strength Boost: The strength of all Samuels casted kidōs are boosted ten times. So, fusing with Grand Master skill in kidō, in shikai even the weakest and most simple of kidō, can become devastating, if done by him.
- Sponge: While activated, his zanpakutō works to absorb all the spare reishi, that had been left behind energy based attacks. For example, if a cero would be shot, there is always some amount of reishi, that just is left in the air. So, this energy will then be absorbed by Sam, so making his immense spiritual energy even harder to spend.
» Bankai Appearance: The zanpakutō disappears from Samuels arm, turning into black ash. After a second or two, huge, black five star pentagram appears in the sky and lights up in fire.
» Bankai Abilities:
- Superior Reishi Boost: The males whole reishi is increased by fourty times and replenished, when activating bankai. All boosts, like speed and strength, are negated.
- Superior Kidō Strength Boost: The strength of all Samuels casted kidōs are boosted thirty times. So, fusing with Grand Master skill in kidō, in bankai Sam would never even risk to use any incantation. It would probably result in something he isn't just ready to risk doing.
- Superior Sponge: While activated, his zanpakutō works to absorb all the spare reishi, that had been left behind energy based attacks. For example, if a cero would be shot, there is always some amount of reishi, that just is left in the air. So, this energy will then be absorbed by Sam, so making his immense spiritual energy even harder to spend.
In bankai this ability also absorbs the weaker attacks directed at him. For example, a cero shot from Gillian, would just be absorbed in the males chest, doing now damage at all, but replenishing his reishi pool a bit.
- Against Time and Space: In his bankai, Samuel can realize kidōs, that should need years to figure, how to do them. The strength of these kidōs is just devastating, able to create or destroy dimensions, if put mind to it. Of course, Sam wouldn't do something as stupid, as to destroy a place he lives. When used this ability, his bankai reverts back to shikai.
