THE HOLLOW TEMPLATE
Enter The Hollow
I. Basic Information» Name:
356 years old» Gender:
Xeno Hollow - Tier 1» Association:
Like all Xeno Hollows, Zalika is bound by her programming to defend and protect not only the Cero Espada, but all of Las Noches. However, she has no particular bond with any particular thing and rather just acts on her instincts. For this reason, she is more of an aimless defender than a devote follower.» Appearance Written:
Unsettling jumps to most people’s minds when they look into the almost human eyes of Zalika. Her face rests decidedly in the uncanny valley, making her feline features edge a bit too close to humanoid, though strays just far enough away to mess with most people’s perspective. It doesn’t help that the way her “face” is plastered onto her head makes her seem almost incomplete. As if someone had started a project, but couldn’t be bothered to finish anything beyond that eerie expression.
As for the rest of her body, there isn’t much to be said. Her long, lithe body stretches out to be just about eight feet long -- twelve feet including the tail -- and with a respectable weight of about 340 pounds, this hunk of machinery is definitely more than a little intimidating when she decides to throw her weight around. While she may be on the smaller end of other Tier 1 Xeno’s, it’s clearly because she was built with speed in mind, not necessarily raw strength.
Steel, electrical platings and wires line the body of the former feline, giving a strong, exoskeleton feel, though the soft whir of parts moving as she stalks around serves as a reminder of the lurking power she can tap into at a moment’s notice. Though perhaps a bit simplistic in terms of design, Zalika prefers to comment on the sparse layer of wires and defensive plates as “efficient”, even if she can sigh at the exposed wiring on her stomach and chest, leaving very obvious weak spots in her design.
As touched on and as expected from all Xeno Hollows. Zalika’s body is layered with metal plating and wires designed to enhance her abilities as a Hollow while nearly completely reworking her physical structure into something more suited for combat. So it’s no wonder that the four-legged creature adorns polished claws and a tail with sharp barbs. Even her ears which stiffly point out of her head have been fined down to a sharp edge, leaving almost every part of her body capable of slicing down anything that invokes her ire. However, these vicious edges are padded out by the softe features of her rounded face and large, blue eyes, as if the creator was hoping that the “cute” face would lower other’s defenses despite the flurry of metal claws and fangs.» Appearance Image:
II. Personality» Personality:
While not entirely mindless, nor entirely reliant on her programming, Zalika is a beast forged with a specific goal in mind and nothing can deter her from that goal: defending her home and those within. While perhaps a bit vague of a command, the Xeno always fulfills it to her best ability, happily risking her life for Arrancar and Las Noches. Because of this, she can be regarded as one of the completely defined machine monsters that stalk the desert, making her raise above the masses as a creature who can see beyond just black and white text.
However, this sort of awareness and comprehension leads itself to a sense of personality and individuality unlike what most would expect from this sub race of Hollows. Of course, there is always a layer of programmed savagery behind all of her motives and statements, but if one actually took the time to sit down and talk with her, it would become increasingly apparent that she’s not quite so keen on what she’s doing.
In fact, it seems like she has a bit of an ego that leads her to believe she knows what’s best -- even if “what’s best” happens to line up with exactly what she was programmed to do. Some might argue that it’s the elitist attitude that has driven her to the level of strength she’s achieved, others might just say it’s a quirk that could be fined out.
So while she is a savage beast designed purely for destroying opposition, there are hints at something beneath all of that, cluing into something more natural
growing from within her. However, only time will tell if this is just a glitch, or something worth noting in the future.
