Enter The Arrancar
I. Basic Information» Name:
Nagato» Appearance Written:
Diez is a tall (166 cm/ roughly 5 feet and six inches) He has blonde, spiky hair, which is kept short. His eyes are a sky blue, and always seem to have enrgy radiating from them. The trait that makes him stand out the most among Arrancar is that he has three whisker like marks on his cheeks. His Hollow hole is where his gut would be, surrounded by strange seal like markings.
Over his torso he wears an open white jacket with a black trim. On the left shoulder of that jacket is a grey emblem, depicted a circle with a spiral in it. Like the rest of his team, he wears white hakama on his lower half, along with black boots. The remains of his hollow mask form a 'headband' on his forehead.
Reiatsu Color: One would describe Diez's as a blend of colors. He seems to have no one set constant color, but more that his reiatsu is made of layers of colors. The most abundant colors are red and black, with blue purple and green mixxed in. » Appearance Image:
Diez and his Fraccion
II. Personality» Personality:
Diez, in life, was a man who was always too careful. When the man died he regretted being to careful and paranoid, causing him to miss out on life. From this was born Diez. While intelligent, able to speak and all that, he doesn't really think before he does something. Diez is instinctive and would likely just do something before you even had time for utter a word of warning.
Besides his instinct, Diez has several traits people know him for. The first of these is his love for fighting. Not winning or dominating mind you, just fighting. Be it an absolute stomp on his side, a even match, or heck, him loosing, he doesn't care! He just enjoys the thrill of the fight.
Another trait he is known for is loyalty to his Fraccion. While many would consider Fraccion to be litttle more than go-fors for the Espada, they are much more than that, especially for Diez. His are loyal friends and Hollows who have been with him for as far back as he can remember. As such they are his family, or in the case of Alma and Esmeralda, lovers.
Diez, as you can guess for a instinctive man, is reckless. Be it in fighting on his own or saving a member of his Fraccion, he doesn't think before he acts, which puts himself into trouble. Such example was when he got his torso torn in half when defending Esmeralda. Not only did this hurt him, but do to his body was cut through and didn't stop it, Esmeralda was still hurt. Mind you, Diez's regeneration healed him back to normal, but he needlessly injured himself and for nothing since the attack still hurt the one he was defending.
Diez does have loyalty to those outside of his Fraccion. This mainly applies to Nagato, for two different reasons. The first is, of course, he is the King of the Hollows. Its sorta expected of him. The second is that siding with him seems to be the best chance at survival. Wanting to experience everything, Diez has a huge want to NOT die, so he sides with him.
III. History» History:
A long time ago there was a man. He was plagued by paranoia, always staying kooped up in some area to keep himself safe, and never experiencing life. However, it was not that he wanted to do this, but merely that he felt the need to to stay safe. When he died he regretted not living his life.
Soon his Soul Chain caused a hole to form in his chest and he became a hollow. For years he would scower the land as a nameless, mindless animal. Even when he started to consume other Hollows he remained an animal. Nothing of any importance would happen until years later, when Nine Gillians were made.
Gather in one spot, thousands upon thousands of Hollows gathered, mass feeding and creating Nine Gillians. These Gillains would group together, and fight for three months before dominant personalities began to appear. These would each start out rather base. Of course this is where Diez as he is now began to form. Back then his speech was very broken and he kept to a mostly animal like personality.
Here he would meet his future Fraccion, all of which seemed to have some animal theme. For Diez, his was a HUGE fox. His followers were a Horse, a Turtle, a Bug, a Octopus/Bull fusion, a Cat made of fire, a Tanuki made of sand, a Gorilla, and Slug. All had two things in common, the first being that they were titanic. The second is that they possessed ten tails.
After conversing, as advised by the Gorilla, they grouped together for strength. For decades they would fight together, slowly becoming stronger and stronger until they all were Adjuchas. Each had manifested unique powers...except Diez himself. He had no unique powers what so ever, merely a huge boost to his normal skills. Additionally, of those of the group who could regenerate, his was the strongest. As such he was voted to be the one to live the longest out of all of them.
Eventually, during a fight with another Adjuchas, they noticed it suddenly begin to regress, becoming a Gillian. It was at this moment they realized, they could become a Gillians again. So now they had to choose, loose the ability to grow in power, or remove the risk of regressing. It was eventually decided that they would wound themselves to keep themselves from regressing. However, they noticed a problem with Diez.
Every time he removed a tail, it merely regenerated. It was clear that Diez's only option was to move forward. So they decided to give him pieces of themselves to him, to benefit both parties. Each gave a certain number of tails, the Octopus/Bull gave him two, the Bug gave him three, the Slug four, the Horse five, the Gorilla six, the Turtle seven, the Cat eight, and finally the Tanuki nine. In that moment Diez gained a deep bond with them, giving each a name:
The Octopus/Bull was Gregorio, meaning Watchful.
The Bug was Esmeralda, meaning Emerald.
The Slug was Tavares, meaning Hermit's Son.
The Horse was Armando, meaning Army Man.
The Gorilla was Conrado, meaning Wise Councilor.
The Turtle was Ambrosio, meaning Indestructible.
The Cat was Alma, meaning Caring.
The Tanuki was Antonio, meaning Praisworthy.
Of all of the bonds, the bond with Antonio was the strongest as he had given all but one of his tails. Infact, when he moved on from the group, the Antonio was the only one he let go with them. Together the two traveled the lands, Antonio working as their sensor, having gained the ability to passively use Pesquisa if anything was touching any sand (as long as he was on the plain) allowing them to keep an eye on the others, as well as hunt down more prey.
For three years they would wander the wilderness together before a faithful night when moving to the human world. This was the easiest place to prey on weaker hollows. However, here they would meet their first Shinigami! While the fight did end with them winning, the was a cost. During the fight not only was one of Diez's tails cut clean off, and a kido seal was placed on it, stopping that specific one to never regenerate. He was unable to assume his original form. He had no way to grow, which meant he risked becoming food for another. He had to find another way to progress. Eventually he would hear of a rumor that the King of Hollows had obtained a new form.
Using Antonio's Pesquisa, they located the strongest person in all of Las Noches, and hunted him down. Eventually they found themselves face to face with the King of the Hollows. There they made an offer, tell them how to obtain this form, and they would join his army, along with the rest of his former group. Agreeing to this, they were told to break their masks. While Antonio was hesitant, Diez did it right away, becoming what he is now.
Afterward Antonio did the same, they both fulfilled their word, gathering the rest of their old group, and turning them into Arrancar. Returning, Diez was inscribed with a number, specifically four. Now given the title of Espada, and his followers named his Fraccion, they serve the King of Hollows and work as some of the strongest of his army.

IX. Role Play Sample» Roleplay Sample:
Like last time, quality changes depending on mood
» Kagaku traveled with the group, though he was slightly behind the rest. Not because he was slow, heck he was the lightest person there, but he was a bit side tracked. He was collecting various plant samples as they went along, be it close to the ground or in the trees. Sure he could pay for them later, but it was much cheaper to just grab some and put them in jars. Luckily for him his extremely light body and above-average normal strength allowed him to keep up with the others, or at least Shoumen. Kagaku, though his face didn't show it, was very excited. Not only is he getting multiple samples of plants were indigenous to this region, but he'd finally get to see the Hideaki hijutsu in action. He had always been curious about their strange ink based abilities. Shoumen also had more tatoos than the average Hideaki, which made him all the more interesting. Unlike many other scientists, Kagaku had no interest in the Nibi Jinchuuriki. He had seen multiple in his decades of living. He knew of their speed, fire, and cat like attitude. Kagaku had learned all the data he was capable of learning without cutting one open, and none of them were willing so it didn't matter to him.
Kagaku had his familiars with him on this mission, well the fast ones at least. Do to the environment that meant everyone but Tsuchi. Esper, Eve, and Raiden had all split up to look for ingredients. Raiden checking the trees, while Esper and Even stayed together and covered a wider area on the ground with Kagaku. Nami was checking under water for ingredients, as well as keeping an eye out for predators. Each had their own way to avoid damage. Both Raiden and Esper could sense what was going on around them, and Raiden and Eve could out run anything there on land. Nami of course had the advantage of her camouflage and natural speed in the water. Esper could likely outrun most animals and those that could outrun her would be beaten by her nimbleness and human intelligence. Kagaku had nothing to worry about.
When they arrived at the bog, Kagaku watched the jinchuuriki show off. The look on his face showed he couldn't be less interested. He turned towards Shoumen to finally speak throughout this journey. "You go next, I still have to gather ingredients.", He said, before picking up some flowers and placing them in jars. He would go last, and likely the easiest way: riding on the back of Nami. True it was hard, but for barely any chakra at all he could be glued to her back while she swam him across the bog. Of course he would wait until Shoumen was across, at which point the rest of his familiars would arrive. Eve would hop on Kagaku's shoulder and ride with him, while Raiden would get just stay in a near by tree. Esper would hop along the longs and rocks with her cat like body, making it across without so much as a drop of water on her.
