"All that Remains....."
What was left of the invasions of hollows and demons on this naval island, appeared to be the remains of it's a sole military base. The lone base, riddled with both large holes and broken windows, and at the night and in the darkness of the building, light still shines from the running power source... Across the outskirts of the island, sand and tall, long grass covered the coasts. What truly was left though was the dreadful presence for the only spiritual beings on the island. Those that were members of the hollow race, though none of them seemed to be that of a menos yet. None the less, they are threats that wander openly, seeking out any prey that might come upon their claimed home. The island was at one point called "Lost Treasure.", it was quite odd though as no one could recall even the reason for the name, much less it's origin.
The odd thing in the reports about this island though is that it was one of the last islands to be lost before secure measures could be placed to keep the enemy at bay though barriers and defenses. Scattered across the island are even the components to amass a barrier to keep the hollows from coming and going, surprisingly the power source on this island is also still running as well...
This is also the call of elevation, as the power source has been something of an unknown factor, trying to investigate it from low level troops has gone downhill time and time again. So this time they have called in outside and higher up forces to deal with the threats and at least secure the island for investigations.
Across the island is an assortment of prototype devices and such that are considered lost to the island, but are they truly the "lost treasures"?
Currently, 15 4-3 tier Hollows wander outside the buildings, across the island.
Within lies, just as many from the looks of things. Unknown readings still return however, when trying to detect around the power source that lies much deeper in the lower floors of the base.

Well, this wasn't exactly how Shatari thought she would be spending her summer vacation. Indeed, the young Yuudeshi did not expect to be cast out to sea on a mission to retrieve a lost naval nation long since foregone in the aftermath of World War Three. If anything, the little lass believed she was going on a history field trip to uncover the stones of history she had only seen in textbooks whenever her teachers back at Karakura High blabbed on about the past.
She received this call for the mission a little late in the evening and she understood that they needed capable recruits from the Vanguard to help lead this operation. With all the recent activity within their organization, The Yuudeshi felt she needed to pull her weight more and this would be the perfect opportunity to do so. After all, she was the damn Warden of the South East Region! Therefore, she put all of her events on hold, equipped herself with savage weaponry and assembled a small team of Vanguard operatives to otherwise help seize this land.
As a result, at around 23:00 hours, an enormous hovercraft that was comparable in size to a commercial airliner emerged over the lone military base. This aerial vehicle was black in color and had the Vanguards symbol plastered over its sides in order for it to be easily identifiable to allies, enemies and civilians alike. And, as expected, its massive size was meant to host extensive supplies, soldiers and everything else in between. There were roughly one hundred operatives abroad the ship and most of them were armed with plasma rifles, explosives, rocket launchers, energized swords and the best weapons that money could buy.
However, Shatari, The Banshee of Karakura, felt her direction and firepower was more than enough to handle this on her own. Within her cabins, The Maiden Of Carnage was prepping for her mission. With but a single downward wave of her hand, clothing emerged across The Yuudeshi's body in a blinding flash of crimson red particle light. As this light dimmed, it unveiled that across her legs and feet were a pair of jade hued tights and leather boots with a dash of crimson red flare at the edges of the boots. While, in glimmering illumination of snow colored light, a midnight black and ivory white colored dress took form around her body that looked similar in fashion to the infamous Gothic Lolita style.
Then, in another glimmer of ghost white light, a wide and large bow that was ruby in appearance attached itself to the back of the dress. And, as this illumination dimmed, a pair of scarlet head beads materialized themselves across the girls head. Now, with her attire set, the blood red eyes of the Yuudeshi opened and sinister grin emerged across her face. She was ready to rise hell, destroy everything to kingdom come and do some swift ass kicking in the name of The Vanguards cause.
Therefore, the pale-skinned maiden of The Vanguard dashed from her cabin and made her way to the top deck of the ship. Once there, her rose colored stare pierced the depths of the ruins and she could do nothing but motion her thumb in a downward direction. This was meant to signal the beginning of her operation and the impending doom that the hollows beneath her feet were sure to suffer. "I only require a crew of five to stay on stand by on the island. The rest of ya' keep watch for anything coming from the air and monitor the situation. If there is something unexpected? I'll give you the signal to raid this island. Until then, just stay on reserve mode."
The voice of The Yuudeshi seemed rather confident and eager that things would go as planned. And why wouldn't it? They weren't anything but a bunch of rotten hollows with no will, purpose or drive to fight. With the blood of warriors coursing through her veins, the influence of The Yuudeshi Drive guided her towards this assured outcome. For that reason is why an eruption of candy red energy took shape around The Warden in the form of a flaring aura. The Beast within her was firing up and this power would be harnessed to slay the hollow scum awaiting her arrival.
Ergo, when the Vanguard operatives that were standing in close proximity around The Banshee saw this display, they immediately knew not to interfere and gave a hard salute in order to otherwise confirm they understood the orders given to them by their leader. Now that the tables had been set, there was no need for her to waste time showing off here. In the blink of an eye, the rabid Yuudeshi set her marks and took off like a seven forty seven jet to the scene of ruins below her. All the while, as soon as she took off, five other unmarked troops took pursuit and spread themselves across different sections of the island in order to scout the area for anything peculiar.
This then left The Warden to do as she pleased as she arrived on the island like flaming comet striking the earth with a deafening bang of life. As she landed near a scrapyard, the first group of hollows were identified to her sights. And, while there were other objectives, she assumed she'd make a quick kill and wipe out these bastards quick and in a hurry. Therefore, she summoned a heft gathering of energy within herself in order to begin shooting off numerous streaks of berry red electricity at the hollows. The likes of which could undoubtedly stun them, induce critical burns across their body and outright kill them with the amount of destructive power which were held within the volts of this lightning.
Once that was taken care of, The Banshee of Karakura started musing over her senses in order to help focus her attention on the mysterious source of power generating from this island. More than likely, if she took that out, whatever hole these hollow-scum were crawling out of would cease to exist. So, she understood that her primary objective was to annihilate that above all else. Henceforth, the fun was just beginning and now it was a matter of breaking through the wall of hollows to make it there. So, with another frantic dash, The Warden dashed through the naval yards in search of this power source and prepared to destroy any and everything that stood in her way.
THE HUNT WAS ON!

As an independent contractor, Arron had found himself in many mission. In WWIII, he had found himself as a scout, and frontline combatant more times than he could remember. Sitting in a cold trench hoping to forestall the advance of Shadowfall forces. He scouted paths that Shinigami and earth forces could take to flank enemies. Even securing new supply routes through the wastelands after the war. His skill in hiding was above the rest since he was on the run for a long time. After the war had ended, he used his skills as a sweeper, clearing hollows form the borders of towns. Even pushing deep into the wastelands to kill large batches of hollows. In all, he was good at his job. After all, he had the title of Bane of Squad Two to keep, and it would be a same if his skills became rusted.
There was one small problem though, with skills and slight fame came people. These people came problems, and those problems meant a harder job them normal. Such is the case with his informant/agent. Thier were times that he gets a call saying a new job as opened up and is perfect for his skills. He should have learned by now that most of those jobs were more trouble than he had barged for. Of course, this mission fell into the latter just because it feel into his day of WWIII. Despite what most people say, WWIII was the bloodiest of all the world wars. He should know he lived through two. In all, it brought back bad memories.
Here it was, a monster in a deep slumber that woke the memories Arron held. Arron found himself shifting back into old habits as the memories splashed on the surface. He was waiting on the outside of the base watching a group of three hollows. He had been here for two days watching the base and making a few scouting runs before turning back to the outskirts. Off in the distance, Arron saw a bright light red off in the distance. That meant his reinforcement were here. Arron shook his head at the display across the way. Bright and flashy was good to some, but to him it was annoying. However, it didn't mean that he couldn't use it to his advantage at times.
Arron sheathed his Zanpakutō; Arron prepared for combat. He had been using his Zanpakutō ability to scatter reishi to hide his own by scattering his reishi signature. He removed the top of his Shihakusho and securing it around his waist. It reviled a large amount of scars across his body. Looking at his reflection in the water he found it funny. All the hardships that he had gone trough his face was still pristine. If he didn't remove part of his Shihakusho, he would look like a girl. Long flowing purple hair, dark sapphire, blue eyes, and even a grace very few could match. He was for all purpose a 'pretty boy' that had the cliche tragic past. Something that most women swoon over him. He didn't care for it, what was worst is that most men also thought he was a girl as well. Most of the time that just made him punch them out.
Shaking his head Arron moved back to the present. The hollows he had been shadowing were now on the move towards the light show. The only problem is that they would never make it. He intercepted the first with a flash step, and his foot came crashing down enhanced with a Kido. "Fumikiri-Byakurai" Arron cried as his attack shattered the hollows mask. The advancing shockwave of his Kido would move towards the other to hollows shocking them. The shock would allow Arron to reach the other two hollows and hit them both with a Tesso-Sho another form of his Kido enhanced strikes of an open palm. A direct blow to their mask would cause them to shatter in an instant. An indirect attack would blast tear right through a large amount of their body like a cannon ball hitting a normal human. Depending on how close the strike was from the mask could shatter it anyway.
Once he finished with the Hollows Arron would seek out his reinforcements and give them a layout of the base that he had gathered so far. He knew the strange power source general location was deep in the center of the compound. However, he never could get into close because of the hollows. He just hoped whoever was sent was at least competent. He could fight small groups of hollows just fine. However, he knew that there was something else here. Whatever was further in the base, he was sure that he couldn't take in on single handed. Speeding ahead with a flash step Arron began his search for however was insane enough to take this mission. Other than him of course.

A shadow stirred. This particular shadow was of a peculiar sort, as it swirled like wind and water. It churned as a wave from the ocean. Slowly, as it rose from it's place in the ruined ground of the island, it took form. The form this peculiar shadow took was that of Man. As they rose from the darkened mist they stood, hands at the ready. Battle formations. Among this group of Soldiers from the Abyss stood the Lord of Whispers, and with him, the Arbiter. The Vector took stock of the area, ordering the Vanguard Dimir agents to scatter and collect information where they could on this phenomena. Seeing the bright light from above, he scanned the airship quickly with his contacts. The airship was registered as Vanguard. The Warden of the South East? Shatari Yuudeshi. Knowing the so called "Yuudeshi Drive", this mission may be more of a hinderance than a help...
At any rate, James would still need to report to her, as she was his superior. James, knowing the Yuudeshi nature to simply rush ahead, watched silently as Shatari fell into combat with the hollows of the area. She could handle herself. Quite well. Almost as well as James could, and that made her a valuable combat asset, despite her hastiness. Carine handed James his wristpad, and he quickly placed his Anima Stone within it. Attaching the wristpad with swift precision, he gave a nod back to Carine, who smiled. Now to catch this Yuudeshi. They were notoriously fast, so James simply soul dashed to her location, and the location where the male registering as Arron Deoradh had appeared, only after the commotion had died down.
"Madame Warden. James William Caldwell, active combat alias: Vector. Reporting for duty. Primary mission is intelligence and reconnaissance. Active secondary mission is artifact research, for which I have brought my Artifact and Substance Research Android. Call him ASRA for short. He's also taken a liking to Sai. Other than that, this sentient AI is classified information.
" Sai stood in position, analyzing the island. "Statement: Current power levels suggest that the entities before this unit are of slight to moderate threat level to the Vector. Query: Begin elimination processes?
" Sai vocalized mechanically. James laughed. "Although it would be interesting to see your physical unit reduced to scrap metal, request denied. Instead, mark Shatari Yuudeshi, all Vanguard troops, and Arron Deoradh as allies. All others may be eliminated based on if your current specifications enable you to. Use your judgement in discerning threat levels. Unit preservation is your primary goal.
" Sai nodded stiffly, and James turned back to Shatari and Arron.
"Now then. We should all be in agreement that the giant glowing power source is probably priority one, right? I'll play support on this mission, and I'll make sure to keep you all alive, even if we have to drag you out in critical condition. Understood? I don't want Azure getting on my ass because I let the Warden die, so that goes doubly for you, Madame Warden. Carine here is just about as strong as you, according to my contacts readings. So don't overdo it in there. Speaking of which, I don't believe you've met Carine. She's the Arbiter. My second-in-command. And you must be the Mercenary we hired to investigate. I can't imagine how long you've been here... Any news?
" James turned to Arron with his question, as he loaded a combat macro into his wristpad for fast invocation. The macro he loaded, M-1-1, was a deadly fire spell that would heat an unlucky enemy and all those surrounding him to around 4000 degrees celsius. Of course, the flames would dissipate if James saw fit, and he wouldn't allow his spell to burn any allies. Despite his unwillingness to play babysitter-- James would probably have to take point, him being the strongest of the group.
He loaded another macro, sending the first to the background while he cast the spell on the others. Macro M-4. In another moment black wind would swirl and churn at the feet of James once more, as he cast the macro on his allies and himself. A glowing purple signet would appear on his and Carine's faces, and the faces of the others, if their bodies didn't reject his magic entirely. If accepted, the spell would boost their pain endurance and focus by 2 ranks, save if the rank advancing to is Grandmaster. With their power levels, Shatari's Pain endurance would be increased to Advanced, and her Focus would be increased to Master. Arron on the other hand, his Pain Endurance and
Focus would both be increased to Master level. The effect would only last a handful of minutes (5-6 posts), but it would surely be helpful in case things go south the further in they went. James made a hand gesture pointing to a hole in the decrepit ruins of the Naval Base outer perimeter wall. That would be their entrance. James brought Macro M-1-1 back to the foreground, then, made his way toward the hole, regardless of whether his improvised team followed.

While the Vanguards were invading the islands Hollows had claimed as their home for so many years a portal, Garganta, opened above the island. From it a lone figure stepped out, black and mechanic in body, white and frail in face. It was Nize, the Septima Espada and one of scientists of Shadow Espada. Also, the last few months he had bared the title of "Master Of Reishi". He was the one who Shadowfall sent in this medium-hard mission, because of the nature of his powers, as well, as because of the influence he had over the Hollows. This was also a way for the organization to experiment how loyal the male was to him, as...Nize was a protagonist in heart.
But loyal too and as he was a patriot of Hueco Mundo and Hollow race, he didn't think twice of his task and started to prepare. Now he was here, island which had been made a home for countless Hollows, creatures which deserved to live as anyone else. So you can imagine his shock and anger as the Arrancar felt the poor souls be mercilessly killed by those not of Shinigami kind. The melancholic man knew what happened to the souls of the creatures, whose souls weren't cleansed, but just destroyed. They would then perish. Dead, but never in peace. Something one would never understand with stone in his heart.
The boy bit his bottom lip. His hands clenched in anger and sorrow. Violence, every time violence! Was it that hard to live in peace? Or at least with pity for each other. Few soldiers from Vanguards spotted the Arrancar and immediately assaulted him. They flew in his direction with their gear and in that moment, with still closed eyes, the males arm transformed into sniper type gun, futuristic in design, and fired around 70 thin lasers in a second. These men didn't even had time to react, as their jet packs, guns and other equipment was pierced in the most sensitive spots and in so made useless. The parachutes were the only things left unharmed.
After removing this threat and with no more time to waste, Nize quickly landed in the middle of the jungle, between the trees and green wildlife of this island. With still closed eyes, he saw everything what was happening in the radius of 2 km. People, buildings and Hollows, all that was as on plate because of his unique power to have a complete control over the Reishi in the area. He was capable on creating armies of creatures in seconds, if provided with enough energy and his knowledge over different beings and how was supernatural powers built made him even more dangerous. But even all this wasn't why he was chosen for this task.
On his person Nize carried a artifact, crafted by himself, called "Mark Of The Hollow Prince". With it he can control all Hollows and Arrancar weaker then him in area of 2km in radius. Of course, those with stronger will then him can escape this effect, but this situation wasn't the case. And so, finding every last Holow in his field of influence, the Septima Espada issued commands to them and reprogrammed these beings so they would last longer in their fights. And yes, Those fighting these at first mindless beings, would definitely notice change. They suddenly started to fight with more tactics. Overthinking what they are doing and utilizing their powers in much wider perspective.
But it wasn't all what the Arrancar did to secure this island. As mentioned before, he took some time to prepare for this mission and in so dozens of different size Gargantas opened, from them stepping out Hollows of Adjucha calss, Arrancar and more then dozen of Gillians. Part of them were just those under the males authority, but large group were those who he created himself, using the almost endless amount of Reishi Shadowfall provided him with. These creatures now filled the island, the strongest attacking those emitting more powerful energy signature and going to guard the entrance to the energy source till Nize gets there. The skies were filled with the beasts, land was crawling with them and even water wasn't a safe place, as never before seen fish creatures filled it.
Around the island multiple small Gargantas opened, spreading to everyone the words of the Septima Espada."Please, leave! This island is the property of Hollows and Hueco Mundo, as you left it to root so many years ago! I beg you, don't make me to fight you! Don't force me to use violence upon you! Here is talking the Septima Espada, Nize, MAster Of Reishi! Please, spare the agony for both of us!"
With that the voice broke off the battle could start.

Just letting people know that I'm taking over the leadership of this mission, as Zero had disappeared.
