Lilynette GingerbackCharacter True Age:
???Character Appearance Age:
"I dare you to say it."Height:
"None of your dam business."Character Gender:
Lilynette can be quite cheerful and mischievous, in that she enjoys waking Starrk up in unusual ways, such as shoving her fist down his throat. Despite her initially childish behavior, she does have a more serious side, as she is concerned about the ominous occurrences in Hueco Mundo and shows sorrow over Aaroniero Arruruerie being killed. She also seems to be rather proud, quickly taking offense when underestimated due to her appearance.
Her relationship with Starrk is also unique amongst the Espada and their subordinates, appearing more comical and lighthearted. She does not address him with the usual "-sama" suffix, as the other subordinates generally do for their respective Espada, and simply calls him by his name. As such, her relationship to Starrk is more similar to that of a younger sister than a servant. Despite this familiarity, however, Lilynette does show a certain degree of respect for Starrk and knows of his true power, even when he chooses to be humble about it (or is simply too lazy to show it), to the point of being outraged that he allowed Baraggan Louisenbairn to lead the battle against the Shinigami in Karakura Town, knowing that Starrk is higher in rank and power than him. This is probably because Lilynette is actually part of Starrk, with the two having originally been a single Hollow. In their separated forms, Lilynette appears to retain all self-motivation and drive, while Starrk himself has next-to-noneGENETIC LOOKSAppearance:
Lilynette is a young-looking female Arrancar but looks older than her canon appearance. Her outfit consists of white-colored briefs with a black line positioned in the middle, arm-warmers, a revealing vest with a high collar, and thigh-high, fur-lined boots. Her hair has grown a bit longer and is of a dull green colour that tends to shine as a bright green in direct sunlight. Her eyes are pink in colour and her bust has grown greater than before but nothing too unbelievable.Bone Appearance:
The remainder of her hollow mask is the form of a helmet with two horns on the top of her head. The left horn looks as if it has been cut off, and the left half that once covered her eye is now gone as she can see through both eyes now. The section of the bone that was covering her eye had previously snapped off leaving a jagged section of her bone helm. Hollow Hole:
Her Hollow hole is positioned in the center of her stomach. reiatsu Colour:
Lime GreenZANPAKUTÔSealed Zanpakutô:
Lilynette has a sword that is drawn from the stump of the missing horn on her mask fragment. It resembles a scimitar with a standard katana hilt and an oblong guard. The blade is somewhat hard to strike with, but can deal devastating damage if directly in contact with the target due to its thick edge.Racial Abilities:
Lilynette is capable of using most Arrancar based powers but is still somewhat immature towards them regardless of how much she has grown. Her cero is much stronger than it used to be as that was the only thing she ever trained in. Ever since she couldn't even defeat ukitake with it, Lilynette has trained her cero to be more advanced than any of her other abilities. Training every day, Lilynette would spend hours just firing her cero at Menos until she grew faint and Starrk needed to look after her in return.
Bala (虚弾 (バラ), bara; Spanish for "Bullet," Japanese for "Hollow Bullet") Bala is an Arrancar alternative to Cero. The technique hardens the user's Spiritual Pressure and fires it like a bullet. Although it is weaker than a normal Cero, it moves about twenty times faster and can be fired at a much higher rate, but the damage is much the same. Stronger Arrancar can also fire a more powerful Bala, while retaining its twenty-fold speed.
Cero (虚閃 (セロ), sero; Spanish for "Zero," Japanese for "Hollow Flash," "Doom Blast" in the Viz translation) are high-powered energy blasts that can be fired from various body parts, such as mouth, tongue, hand or fingers. Only Gillians, Adjuchas, Arrancar, and the Vizard have so far been shown to use Cero attacks, and it appears that stronger entities can use it more efficiently. Various Arrancar and Hollow characters display variants of the technique, such as the Espada-exclusive Gran Rey Cero, the Cero Oscuras that Ulquiorra Cifer can use only in his released form, as well as the Cero Sincrético performed by Pesche Guatiche and Dondochakka Birstanne.
Garganta (黒腔 (ガルガンタ), garuganta; Spanish for "Throat," Japanese for "Black Cavity") is how Arrancar and Menos-class Hollows move to and from Hueco Mundo. Kaname Tōsen, Kisuke Urahara and Mayuri Kurotsuchi have also demonstrated the ability to use the technique. It literally tears open the dimensional fabric separating the worlds, revealing a tunnel of whirling, torrential energy that must be focused and solidified to create a discernible pathway.
Hierro (鋼皮 (イエロ), iero; Spanish for "Iron," Japanese for "Steel Skin") refers to the hardened skin of the Arrancar, which is a result of their compressed spiritual power. While their skin is strong enough to block even released Zanpakutō bare-handed, it is by no means impenetrable. Stronger Arrancar generally have proportionally stronger skin than usual.
Negación (反膜 (ネガシオン), negashion; Spanish for "Negation," Japanese for "Anti-Membrane") are energy fields are used to rescue fellow Hollows. Only the Gillian-class Menos have shown the ability to use it. Negación fields surround a target in a square beam of light that isolates the target from the dimension they are currently in, making it impossible to harm them. The field then pulls the target towards the Menos that created the field. Espada have a special cube-shaped device called Caja Negación (反膜の匪 (カハ・ネガシオン), kaha negashion; Spanish for "Negation Box," Japanese for "Anti-Membrane of Negation") meant to simulate Negación fields, which are used to punish their subordinates if necessary. The cube, when used on a subject, traps them in an alternate dimension from which there is no escape; however, this assumes it is being used as intended. More powerful Arrancar, namely the Espada themselves, can escape given enough time.
Pesquisa (探査回路 (ペスキサ), pesukisa; Spanish for "Inquiry," Japanese for "Probe Circuit") is the Arrancar equivalent of the Shinigami ability to sense Spiritual Pressure. It functions very similarly to sonar.
Sonído (響転 (ソニード), sonīdo; Spanish for "Sound," Japanese for "Sound Ceremony") is the Arrancar equivalent of the Shinigami Flash Steps and the Quincy Hirenkyaku; it allows the user to travel at incredibly high speeds for short distances. Use of Sonído is punctuated by a brief static sound, in contrast to the "swish" sound caused by Flash Steps.Unique AbilitiesCero and Bala Omnipresence:
For as long as she can remember, Lilynette has been wanting and trying to get Starrk to train. However, such feat, albeit not impossible is more difficult to accomplish than getting him to get up in the mornings and do something productive. However, on the rare chances they have gotten over the last few hundred of years, he has taught her a number of things she has been eager to learn. Though for the most part she can be seen firing her cero just a few inches in front of her opened mouth, she has learned to do so from other areas as well. Taking after Starrk, she is easily able to fire off her cero and bala from anywhere on her body without needing to motion or point, much like he can.Telescopic & Microscopic Sniper Eye:
From her left eye, the one below the red flames, Lilynette has been able to produce a number of effects. She can easily use that eye in specific to display a telescopic sight that allows her to see up to 1,000 meters clearly as if she was mere inches away. Likewise, she can easily focus her eye to zoom in and see her surroundings on a microscopic level to the point where she could easily spot a nanobacteria. However, the effects are limited to only her left eye as her right is not blessed with such qualities. Her left eye, much like a specialized sniper, also allows her to see in thermal patterns much like a heat vision camera. The benefits awarded by her left eye usually end up allowing her to easily find and capture her opponents. Sniping her foes with a blast becomes rather simple as her vision of the enemy and their movements is so clear it becomes very difficult to avoid being hit by her her energy attacks.Tools Of The Mistress:
Its no news that Starrk is many times faster and stronger than Lilynette. This however becomes a problem when she is trying to discipline him by hurting him or annoying him. Though he is usually one to take her hits to avoid going through the trouble of moving, the times when he does, it is just impossible to catch up to him. She has thus developed techniques to try and shorten the gap. While catching him is still a chore, some of her abilities do help her some. She has become able to easily control her hair with her own will. Starrk can't be bothered to get her to get a haircut, and the last time he was forced to do it himself, she ended up beating him for hours on end because of the sloppy job. Through this ability, she is easily able to extend, bend, flex, twist, shorten, twirl, spring, contract, and lengthen her hair. Not only are the length and the direction in which the hair travels affected, but even the texture and toughness can be controlled. Lilynette can make her hair to be nearly as tough as her hierro or as gentle as a feather, and dull and blunt like a hammer or sharp and thin like a blade. It is also thanks to this ability that she is easily able to keep her hair styled as she best sees fit with a length she can agree on and have less reasons to hurt Starrk.Punishing Wave:
With her blade, she is easily able to let out powerful energy blasts. She may chose to do so either by firing it from the tip of her blade in a linear motion or allowing it to encase her blade for added power during melee combat only to be released and slammed down onto her opponent at close range. Likewise, she may fire it off in an arch, covering a wide range and likely incapacitating potential enemies.Enhanced Hakuda & Speed:
Although Starrk is always with Lilynette, there are bound to be times where he has his hands occupied with other opponents and cannot fully protect her. Also, Starrk is not so easily confused into releasing, so often times he fights on his sealed state as does her. Due to her lack of a release save for uniting with Starrk for theirs, she has been taught to use her body more effectively. Starrk has taught her how to empower herself by using better and stronger hand to hand techniques to face her opponents. By being trained by someone of his caliber, her speed has also exponentially increased beyond imagination from what it once was back during the days of Aizen and the Espada.Pistolera:
At will, Lilynette may turn her sword into a single gun. The gun is relatively similar to the look of the ones displayed by Starrk which are actually her. However, her gun is relatively thinner than the one Starrk displays in his release. Since it is truly her who becomes Starrk's twin pistols during release, this is the reason why she can only use one instead of both pistols. From this weapon, she can fire a varying number of ceros at will. While Starrk boasted about being able to fire nearly about 1,000 ceros at once at any time, she can truly only do a maximum of 50 at any time. However, even that it is quite difficult as she usually shoots a few every time, though it is not strange to believe she would push herself to her limits if she had to. She is easily able to control the direction of the cero fired even after it has left the pistol. The blasts travel extremely fast and create quite the devastating damage. When firing a large number of ceros it can even seem as if they were one huge blast albeit being a conglomeration of a myriad of destructive blasts. Unlike the more passive Starrk, she tends to be rather hasty and has thus been seeing using more rash and offensive strategies. It is not rare to observe her firing off ceros aimed at her opponent and elsewhere and maneuvering the blasts to create damage through their travel.Los Cachorros:
A technique similar to the wolves used by Starrk, Lilynette's is extremely weaker in early all ways. For starters, instead of wolves, she creates cubs. The baby wolfs are rather small and may easily be confused for puppies. Compared to the amount Starrk created which could easily reach the hundreds, at the moment, Lilynette can only create and maintain a maximum of 10 cubs. Nevertheless, for the most part, she only creates about 5 unless she needs more. However, it is likely that the number of cubs she can create changes depending on her power as she has just merely attained mastership and control over 10 cubs recently. Likewise, she is able to control the actions and movement of her cubs not only verbally but also with her mind. Unlike the seemingly calm wolves of Starrk who were predominantly motionless save for when he wanted them to attack, her cubs are a bit more unorthodox. In part because of her personality and also because of the fact that they are cubs, her creations are usually a bit more restless, moving around, albeit close to her, and jumping. The cubs explode upon contact with the enemy into a very devastating explosion regardless of the smaller size of the cubs, although she can choose to have them explode at any time depending on the proximity to the target as she so desires. Recreating her cubs is rather simple as she can easily keep creating more cubs so long as she does not exceed her limit.Materialization:
If at any time, either her sword or her gun if the sword has been converted to it, is taken from her, or pushed away, Lilynette can easily have her weapon dematerialize and materialize back into her hands. Likewise, materializing her weapon from the sword into the gun, and from the gun into the sword is rather simple and nearly-instantaneous.RESSERECCION

Lilynette and Starrk were defeated in battle against Shunsui kyouraku and had to inevitably flee the scene. Soon after they escaped, Starrk had to rest his body as he had been badly wounded and lilynette proceeded to look after him as they sat in the sands of hueco mundo. For 400 years the two stayed together completely and lilynette slowly grew into an older girl. However an incident that occured when starrk was not around caused her left bone fragment to shatter and revealing the rest of her eye. the happened shen she ran out of energy whilst training and fell from the top of a tree in menos forest and landed on solid rock.
The two lived in solitude and only with each other as time passed on without a word from the above world. After a while, lilynette grew tired of wandering around and training each day and wanted to return. Strangely, Starrk also had the same idea but for new reasons and Lilynette joined him as he rushed off to follow him to Las noches.RP Sample:
The path to Las Noches was a long, tiresome and annoying one full to the brim with bother. The sands just went up and down, up and down like water sitting still and stand able but at least water was refreshing. You can't drink sand!
Two people walked across this endless desert of Hueco Mundo. People died here so the fact they were walking across it so casually was a bit odd, but one of them was trailing behind a little. One was tall and the other short but both were trying to get to Las Noches and out of the dark sands. the smaller one trailed behind the taller one, slowly creating distance between the two as she was growing tired of the stupid walk. She opened her mouth to yawn but a small dust storm blew into the two causing her to fall over, spitting sand everywhere. About 10 seconds of that and the girl was just sitting on the floor. She looked up to the tall one still walking. he was going to leave her behind!
"Starrk!... wait up!..."
The girl sprung to her feet causing the hooded robe around her to fall from her head revealing her arrancar bone helmet and green hair. She attempted to sprint back to the guy walking so casually, but could only break into a swift jog as she was tired of this walk. Why the hell where they going back to the espada anyway?...
Standing at the edge of the battle, Lilynette lied against a rock. Head resting against the stone she kept her eyes focused on Starrk and his foe. The day had gone without a hitch; boring as it always was. Seemingly out of nowhere a very large and muscular man had appeared before them. His power masked until he made his appearance, it was nearly on par with Starrk's even though from his appearance, she didn't believe him to be too powerful. He was a Quincy, that much she knew. The grotesquely muscular man wouldn't shut up either. Something about finding a worthy of opponent and fighting until the death as the star of the show. Senseless talk to her really. For the most part, she was just excited to see Starrk in action. Save for the rare chances where she forced him to train and spar with her, it was nearly impossible for her to get him to do so. In fact, it had been his intent to walk out of this battle and avoid the fight much to her dismay. However, given the opponent's power, and the fact he had made indirect comments about hurting Lilynette had changed his mind. It was not all bluff. The Quincy seemed to have the power to deliver his claims. She couldn't quite put her finger on it or measure it, but it seemed like their power levels were nearly equal, even if, at least slightly, Starrk seemed to have a barely noticeable edge. She was sure, if he put his mind to it, he should be able to beat the idiot clad in white.
For the time being, the two were just exchanging looks and occasional words. She was quite far enough where she couldn't really make out the words but still. If she could guess, she would say Starrk was still attempting to reason with the guy out of the fight. However, judging by the excitement and the boasting behavior the Quincy exhibited, there was little to no chance for the fight to be postponed or cancelled. Taking a look to her left side, a very small and chubby boy stood just a couple meters from her. He didn't seem violent in the slightest. In fact, she couldn't quite figure out if it was a young boy or simply a very small man. And small he was. Even for Lilynette's height, the small individual barely made it past her hips. "Hey, you," she called out to the little man besides her, "Wanna fight? It doesn't seem like they'll be done any time soon." She couldn't quite sense much spiritual energy from the little man. There was little to no chance he could pose a fight or be of any real threat or so she believed. That wasn't the main reason to her request however. Some distractions would do her well, even while she kept a watchful eye on the fighters to learn what she could. But also, if she managed to secure a fight, maybe offering the boy up to the Quincy would cancel the fight or so she hoped. However, even that was a last choice. She wanted Starrk to fight and remember the strength he possessed and the one he should show with her once they finally decide to come out onto the world.But there was more. The way the Quincy boasted, positioned, and spoke, there was definitely more to it. He couldn't be so stupid could he? In any case, she had to be ready in case the muscular Quincy overpowered Starrk, but that likely wouldn't happen right?
"No thank you," responded the little man, "Mask de Masculine..the Superstar, deserves my full attention!" Cringing a bit, and with her left eyebrow twitching slightly she furrowed her expression. Mask de Masculine....Superstar....really? she thought to herself. Someone with a name so moronic and idiotic couldn't possibly be strong or pose a threat could he? Then again, just at the start of the fight he was nearly on par with Starrk, and even though she was not acquainted with all the powers of a Quincy, his behavior made it nearly obvious that there was more. Fine" she said pouting. The fight seemed to be going rather well. Both combatants were moving at very high speeds. The Quincy attacks, his punches and kicks and even his arrows were extremely fast. No surprise, even if nearly caught in more than one occasion, Starrk was able to evade them all. Though Starrk's slightly superiority made his hits manage to get even closer to hitting the Quincy, occasionally even doing so, their powers were so close that it could almost be called a stalemate, even if, at this rate, Starrk would end up winning in a rather drawn out battle.
Same expression on her face, that of disdain and veiled feelings of excitement about the battle she looked on. Starrk was hovering in mid air as was the Quincy, albeit the latter being slightly hunched over, likely out of trying to keep up with him. Closing her eyes, she lent her head back with a smile. The battle was not won and Starrk would have his work cut out for him not only to win but even to survive. It should provide good practice. "Don't you lose Super Star!! Beat him! Win!" Giggling to herself she kept her eyes closed. Perhaps cheering helped some fighters. She didn't think it would really make much different for Starrk. But, even if it did...Lilynette had an easy time displaying most emotions but that...well, she was just not as well versed with that kind of feelings. All of a sudden, she felt chills running down her spin as her hairs stood on end, and she could feel her skin tensing. Opening her eyes quite widely in sheer shock, she saw the unthinkable. Standing upright, the Quincy was releasing quite an ungodly amount of power. Wad he going to release? she thought to herself, No, that was not it. The Quincy had done nothing. He head not changed physically in the slightest. From what she had seen he had merely inched his chest, and a ungodly amount of energy was leaking out forcing the dirt up and away and creating quite the dense area. What the heck is going on?! she thought. He was unlike before. His speed was, by her suspicions, now easily surpassing Starrk's. The same could be said about his power, and the only fair hunch was that his abilities would have increased as well. Knowing Starrk he would be stubborn to release, but this wasn't the time to be a dumbass. They had nearly died hundreds of years ago for taking it easy on strong opponents. Releasing would surely give an easier upper hand to Starrk and her, but on his sealed state, it would be murder given the current power of the Super Star. Rushing to his side as fast she could, she was met by the Quincy, standing in the way between her and Starrk, his speed so astonishingly fast she couldn't even trace him. It had likely been even faster than what Starrk could presently achieve. There was still the question of what had happened. How had he increased his power so easily. Did he possessed a special devise, or was he merely playing her and Starrk for fools. "Oh? Gonna help him? How cute! Go ahead dear. Super Star has the show, and its going down!" he screamed before bursting into a very purposely tailored laughter moving to the side. Smiling quite falsely so, she forced her expression to avoid saying anything. The guy was an idiot, and he would die like one. By Starrk's side, she would not speak to him, but rather she would punch just over his waist on the side with a fair degree of strength. In her expression, her face still forced to smile, there was a mixture of feelings between anger, sadness, and worry. She couldn't allow what happened hundreds of years ago to occur again. Closing her eyes again, blue reiatsu engulfed her as a tremendously powerful beam of energy shot up engulfing them both. Upon revealing, Starrk's released state, with Lilynette as his guns, would stand to continue the fight. "Let's do this. For real this time!"
Starrk held his ground, looking directly at the male before him. "Hmph.. Ok, all prepared..." He breathed out as the male slowly rose up, his spine straightening as he gripped on Lilynette tightly, narrowing his eyes at the masked gentleman before him. "Well, that was most unusu-" He was cut off as the male suddenly through out both hands, giving out a war call as he suddenly shot forwards.
"WITH GREAT JUSTICE!!!" He cried as he shot towards the former Primera, who merely appeared behind the male. "What was that?" He asked as cero began to POUR from one of his guns, slamming forwards directly forwards into where the male was standing, his eyes slightly widening as the male took it... head on. "Oi, Lilynette, are you kidding me?!" He asked the gun in his hands as he began to teleport about at rapid speeds, Mask de Masculine leaving him next to no time to rest as the male's Star attacks flew all around his body.
"Your movements aren't increasing any longer..." He muttered, as at last he fired no less than six blasts from the guns one after another directly into the male's back, causing him to stumble forwards slightly, Starrk taking the moment to rest...
Shaking wildly in his heads she spoke in anger, "Shut up! That guy is a beast, I'm giving it all I got!" she yelled as there was literally steam coming out from the end of the barrel and the butt of the gun. The Quincy had gotten hit, hard. Sure, his recent increase in power had made it so that he could get up and still fight at a fair rate in the battle but still. Lilynette had given it her all and the blast should have made quite the dent. However, the guy was still incredibly fast. Granted, in their release form, Starrk and her were easily outsped him, even if the opponent still seemed to be strong enough to remain alive. There was something more troubling however. Did the opponent had any other forms or power ups. No, that couldn't be, she thought to herself. However, the earlier power up was unexpected as there was nothing that should have triggered it but it had indeed happened either way. They had be to ready, and on the look out, as it was not clear if he could just keep increasing his power. If so, Starrk and her would be in a world of trouble in the long run.
Panting about 20 meters or so from them, the Quincy stood smiling and even laughing in their direction. He was still able to stand with relative ease.With a hand on his knee, it was almost unreal he was not on the floor dead. What's more, there was no blood or wound of any size to be seen. He was obviously mauled and bruised but that was the extent of his condition. Impossibly she kept thinking to herself. "No way... she whispered. Even if the guy was substantially strong, Starrk and her had the advantage in power and speed, and even if he had gotten stronger, the ceros should have been enough to produce quite the serious wound, yet they had barely caused bruising. Bursting out in laughter much like a superhero in the shows of the past in the human world would, the Quincy spoke. "Don't look so surprised Arrancar. This is the true power of a Quincie's Blut! To victory!" he shouted as he rushed, fist outstretched forward to try and deliver a powerful blow to Starrk. Lilynette had no idea what he meant. She had no clue what Blut was, but she could only hope Starrk knew. Whatever it was, it seemed to be protecting him, but it couldn't be a perfect defense could it? Either way, they had to step it up.
Starrk! she screamed at him, "Stop screwing around and lets get serious!" It was no mystery, specially to Lilynette who spent every waking second with him, that Starrk was not truly giving it his all. It would be rare for him to do so initially in any battle regardless of the power of the combatant but they would have to do so. Even though power and speed were still in their hands, the Quincy had come out unscathed from the last barrage of ceros, and they would have had to thus increased the battle potential. "Ready?" she shouted, half expecting Starrk to dodge and move out of the way towards a more strategical standpoint where they could possibly deal with the threat better. In that location, it was her plan to shoot off a barrage of ceros into the distance and quite a few more aimed at the Quincy. By redirecting the off shoot barrage of ceros and with those aimed directly at him, they would be able to create a barricade or ambush in which to drown and hopefully kill the sucker. If that wasn't enough, Starrk would have to pull his A-game and fire off his own attacks to aid in taking down the mass of muscle.
"Whatever." He told her deftly in reply, having already gone back to studying the male before them. How. How. How is he not keeling over? Starrk wondered, before his reflections recalled the power of the Quincy, the power that this man had displayed. Quincy using spiritual energy... to increase their own... human abilities...? He narrowed his eyes, wondering if it was possible that the Quincy had gained traits similar to those of Arrancar through the use of their Reishi. ... He was silent as Lilynette let out her gasp; after all, he was still busy studying the case before him.
Alright, so he's either extremely resilient beyond all belief... or he changed. He changed from earlier? What veriables changed. Sound; that's it. The sound of himself and of... the little... man... He realized, turning his head to face the small children, a slightly concerned expression alighting upon his features as the man before them told him to not look so surprised. "I don't care about your true power or victory; I just want to go back to sleep..." He groaned out miserably, before checking Lilynette's pistol as steam began to come out of it. "Hmm, it is broken..." He muttered to the gun as he thought, rubbing the back of it with one hand to help focus his thoughts.
"...I know." He said, almost morosely to his weapon in reply as the touch stopped, his own body suddenly vanishing as he reappeared a few feet above the heads of the male and his little assistant. "No, but here goes nothing..." He muttered as in front of Mask de Masculine, where Starrk's body used to be, a small blue hole appeared... and out of the hole flew a massive cero.
"Cero Metrelleta." He stated simply as he pointed one hand at the Quincy and another at the small man, breathing out a single time as THOUSANDS of cero descended down on both of them, the cero pouring from Starrk's weaponry as it pounded down on the males, the large one beginning to keel over from the unexpected attack so soon after the triggering of the Cero Portella and the little man never having stood a chance against the massive assault performed by the Arrancar.
And yet, to him, it was just beginning to wake up. "There... Aaaaahn..." He let out a yawn, using the back of his pistol to rub the side of his head, his smooth brown hair becoming disheveled slightly by the action as his eyes lowered to half mast. "Anything else...?" He asked... as he saw not one... but two shadows appearing in the plumes of rubble.
"Broken?!" she said somewhat angrily, before whispering, "I'll break you." Before she was done speaking, there went Starrk rubbing the butt of the gun with his hand. "Oi, oi, what are you doing you pervert?!" she said with another whisper, "not in public..." Momentarily foregoing their brief game and facade, she looked on as Starrk fired the Cero Metralleta through her. She wasn't quite sure if he had figured out what the Quincy's weakness was, but at least he was attempting to figure it out. In due time, given Starrk's attack pattern and the response of the Quincy, they would have their answers. Nearly as quickly as Starrk had deviated the aim of one of his guns away from the Quincy, it was almost as if he knew. Rushing at nearly blinding speeds in the direction of James, the little kid, he sped as if his life depended on it. The Quincy was likely able to speed past the attack even at Starrk's momentarily superior power, but still, delivering himself and the boy from harm was not possible; at least not both at once with the power he currently displayed.
In an instant, the ceros crashed down, leveling the area, making it obvious they had hit an intended target and hit it hard. Starrk seemed to have wanted to fire quite the number of cero and specially strong at that. Lilynette also continued to do her best so that the shots were as strong as she could possibly deliver them. The situation was tense. She didn't care about much more. She just wanted to see what had occurred once the smoke cleared. The suspense was such that she had even purposely overlooked Starrk's earlier remark about sleep. Usually, she would have beat him for it or done something of a similar nature. However, given the power of the enemy, and the potential for problems, sleep was likely the last thing Starrk would get until the battle had been done and over with.
As the smoke cleared, there was something positive out of the first things seen by the reflection of the light. There was blood. A lot of it. Finally she thought to herself. The boy was under the Quincy, also injured and bleeding out. On top of him, the Quincy was in an even worse condition, and bleeding profusely and nonstop. "This is it. It's over" said Lilynette, in a tone that was happy in part, and in part it was almost inviting as if waiting for Starrk to approach to him him in the face for being so lazy and rubbing his hand on her butt and even nestling his head against her ass. ..."bastard..." she whispered in the slightest of giggles. On the ground, coughing up blood, the Quincy kept looking at James, shocked, and seemingly unable to believe what had just occurred. Seconds from losing his life, the now pale James, smile and whispered, though quite strongly, "Never give up Mask de Masculine. You are...the world's Super Star." With that, James closed his eyes and his existence was silence. Almost in unison out of a reflex, Super Star let out an incredibly loud roar in anger in response to Jame's death. More surprisingly, the blood coating his body simply evaporated and the numerous deep wounds and lacerations that had been created by the attack healed and left him healthy and in a perfect state of homeostasis as he had been at the very beginning of the battle. On top of that, his level of energy was no nearly unmatched. By merely standing, the lifeless body of James had been tossed hundreds of feet away by just the sheer power exuded by the spiritual pressure. Pulling on his clothing, the Super Star had removed a large portion of the latter Standing wearing just undergarments, a big belt, and a mask, he now truly reflected the typical look of wrestler's of old in the world of the living. However, the new power was daunting.
Starrk was right in his assertion. It was indeed Jame's screams that powered up Super Star. Exhaling, she was pensive. In part, she was glad Starrk had discovered it as it provided more chances to win, and more importantly, survive. However, part of her could felt somewhat bad for his death. Granted, this was not the first time she had seen death. Starrk and her had accidentally caused the death of countless of hollows just by being near them, and a great number of other individuals during battle. Still, the little guy perhaps did not need to die. No, he did, she thought to himself. He was enhancing and strengthening their opponent with the purpose of killing them. It was an enemy, and he had been dealt with. That was all. There was more to worry about at the moment however. The last power up had boosted Super Star beyond the limit. At this point, though his power had increased exponentially, it was still not yet enough to put Starrk to shame. Nevertheless, it was enough where it already, even if slightly, surpassed the power presented by Starrk in his released. Perhaps releasing the wolves and resorting to using all the techniques in their disposal could possibly balance the ties. However, given the current power displayed by the Quincy, doing so would merely lead to a stalemate. The power increase had been that severe. It was difficult to know if Starrk would agree to go to Segunda Etapa as he rarely did so. However, given the power of the enemy, if they did not did so, the battle would drag out for ages, and the odds heavily favored the Quincy at this moment. There was still the problem of his blut. Yea, at this point in time, remaining in the same released state would likely bound with Starrk and Lilynette losing the battle, and likely, their lives as well. The only redeeming factor was that the Quincy could no longer access any power up or so she believed. Either way, the enormously powerful Quincy began to walk in their direction, eyes and resolve focus on their death, ready to rush and kill at any second.
"...............Sorry...." Was all he said as Starrk realized that the little man's fighting resistance was not enough to take the assault that he had performed against him. He truly was sorry; he didn't mean to kill the little fellow... "Guns shouldn't talk back..." He muttered to her as she giggled at him about not being in public, leading to him yawn as he looked downwards, figuring it was finally...
Just as suddenly, his body teleported, but not before he felt the impact of the incoming Male's star charge as it slammed forwards into where the male known as Coyote Starrk was standing. "What the he-" His voice was cut off as he crossed both of his arms at the assault of the male, his entire body being chucked downwards as the air ripped around him, his body colliding into the rubble below as he coughed, spitting up blood onto his white uniform and looking at the pistols in his hands.
"So he doesn't get weaker...? Will a drawn out fight be too difficult...?" The male wondered softly aloud, before finally narrowing his eyes. I dislike this... He thought to himself as he released a cero in front of himself, filled with pure energy, an Oscuras nailing into the male's form as the Mask rammed into the cero, Starrk taking a moment to make a breather as he breathed in and out again. "Lilynette... if this doesn't work... I'm going to end it all at once." He told her, the experiences of times gone by returning to his mind as his bandoliers shown.
Without warning, the guns in his hands glowed with power, flowing into the bandoliers behind his body, flailing about madly before suddenly they were calm... and wolves appeared behind the male. The Pack had arrived, and all around Coyote Starrk's body, small wolves had appeared, which howled like mad, Starrk standing in the center of them as he looked at the male in front of him. "Let''s do it, Starrk..." He muttered to himself as he held out his arms as the pistols reformed once more, but this time without the presence of Lilynette inside of them. She was within the wolves all around his body...
And the wolves poured forwards. Enough energy to decimate an entire city poured onto the male in front of them, the sheer amount of exploding energy compounding as explosion after explosion triggered, so much explosive force that Starrk had to shield his face with an arm, his narrowed eyes beholding as the star man took all of the damage that was dealt to his body, moving closer and closer to them. This is bad... This is bad.. The thoughts slowly crawled through his mind, the realization more of an overall feeling than a personal thought, his breath coming in perfect rhythm as he began to point both guns at the male before him, shouting to the wolves around him. "LILYNETTE! GET BACK, AND STAY BACK!" He cried as the male finally reached him, slamming into his body with his right fist and sending the male flying into a boulder, his eyes opening wide and gasping as the entire boulder was decimated, blood firing from the orifice known as his mouth as the eyepatch on his eye became dishelved, his entire body quivering from head to foot as he took a quivering, quivering breath, his body relaxing once again...
Remaining quiet, she had nothing to respond to Starrk. She didn't quite have a comeback for guns not talking back. But, even if she did, the events that were unfolding left no chance or freedom for ease of thought. Looking on to the Quincy, he was displaying feat after feat of unnerving and nearly unattainable power. The cero oscuras, and even the wolves had done nothing to greatly hamper him or hurt him. The cero oscuras had been as if it had never been used. It was not that it lacked power but rather that the power displayed by the Super Star greatly overshadowed it. Even the wolves had done nothing. In a barrage of arrows he had managed to hit a large majority of the wolves. Some had even been caught by the devastating effects of his spiritual energy and destroyed upon contact. Even the rare few that manage to get into his vicinity were met by even stronger kicks and punches which, even with the explosion did little but enhance his resolve. With every successful destruction of the wolves, Lilynette seemed to be getting fed dose after dose of pain. In a way, even though Starrk had yelled for her to retreat, it had come too late. She had experienced the conglomeration of the damage and the pain his numerous attacks had caused the wolves. Starrk had not fared any better as he had been struck with a tremendous amount of force and the damage was visible in his body and his profuse wounds.
Quite a distance from Starrk, a lone wolf remained. The lone, tired and weakened wolf whimpered and rested on midair. Not out of a feeling of being tired but instead because, as a reflection of Lilynette, she was in so much pain, where getting up was likely an impossibility. "I'm sorry...Starrk.." she whispered in his direction. It was likely not loud enough for him to hear but it was as loud as she could make it in her weakened state. Her words could likely be her last so it would have been well to know he had heard them. Starrk had spoken similar words when he nearly died at the hands of the group of Captains during the battle with Aizen, where thereafter Lilynette had looked and cared after him, nursing him back to health. But it was her this time, saying the words. Starrk did not look any better, but with every passing second, her eyes closed a little more, and she was about to lose herself, and her existence. She didn't know if Starrk would push it and go for the release. They would die if they did not. However, with their injuries, specially hers, it was not completely sure if it could be done fast enough before one of them died. On the best case scenario, going into Segunda Etapa would heal their wounds, but staring in the face of death, the occurrence was still but a mirage.
"Is that all you got Arrancar?!" yelled the Quincy as he hunched over while inching his chest as a massive amount of energy built up around him. "If you got more up your sleeve show it now; Super Star fights and avenges his friends against his foes at their best." Calming a bit more but still releasing the ungodly amount of energy, he spoke in a much more serious tone, "If this is the limit of your ability however, I shall grant your request. I shall put you and your little bitch there," he said looking at Lilynette in her wolf, almost dog like form, To sleep!
"...What did you call her." The voice of the male suddenly emerged from his throat. He had said nothing to Lilynette, one way or the other; given her no indication. He had been thinking, at hundreds of miles per minute; even throughout the words of the male before him. However, the words he gave made him suddenly top as he reached out a hand, grabbing the male's shoulder. "...No one... Makes... Her....... Cry.......!" The words left his throat as the male suddenly EXPLODED with power, such intense power that even mucho Masko had to take a few steps back, as Starrk's body vanished, setting a hand on the top of the wolf that was Lilynette's head as without warning, her power flowed back into his body.
"Segunda Etapa Ressercion: VOLVER LOS LOBOS!"
The voice of the male echoed across the plains as once again a terrific wave of power roared across the area, and exposing Starrk once again. However, something had changed greatly about the man. The fur on his body had elongated, becoming a shimmering blue. His eyes were both free of the eyepatch, and instead of two guns in his hands, there were now no less than four hovering around his body. Finally, and the mos significant, the wolves had returned. However, unlike before, there were now THOUSANDS of the creatures in every direction around the male's body, and the spiritual pressure was so intense that it was making the Masked Luchador difficult to even stand properly, even with his terrific amount of power; so intense was the aura of this being who had emerged.
"....Die." HE said simply, for once actually having become unsettled as the guns began to fire, not one, not tens, but HUNDREDS of pitch-black cero oscuras which rained down, first kneeling the man, then pushing him completely over, pressing him on the ground as the pressure increased, the wolves around the male's body growing wings as in both of his hands, blue blades of pure power appeared, Reiyroku Swords in essence coming to full power as he finally looked down at the ground below. "...Lilynette; don't be sorry. It was my fault, not yours." He told the girl, glancing about around him for a moment as his blasts held down the masked man; though he had no idea what it was that he would release next...
His words... Starrk's that was, they were nice. Albeit in the slightest way, it was barely possible to make out a smile, even if it was nearly perfectly veiled by her pain. She was relieved however. For one reason or another, and likely much more than one, his resolve was finally clear. He was about to get truly serious. Having been absorbed back into his body, Starrk radiated a power that easily overshadowed the Quincy's beyond belief. The difference in their power, even after the power ups from Super Star were like night and day. Starrk was going to win this, she was sure of it. The gigantic multitude of wolves and the ceros ready to be fired in his direction were but an indication and a prelude to the hell that wold befall him. Even if the Quincy's speed was unnaturally gifted, which it was, dodging a good number of the attacks would be troublesome. Dodging them all in his present condition was just not possible. Though his power preceded him as he tried to navigate his way through the attacks a good number of them managed to find their way to him and injury him even worse than he had been earlier while protecting James. There was only one difference. James was no longer there. He had no other power ups to recuperate and get stronger from. It was over for him. It was unusual that it had taken Segunda to down this opponent but he merited, even if he was about to be put down with the first and bare displays of power of this form.
It's not your fault Starrk... she said from the guns in a rather soft and gentle pitch voice, almost unlike herself. Its not that she didn't like acting this way, she just really liked Starrk and often found it difficult to behave this way. It was just easier to hit him or annoy him. "It was not your fault back then, and its not your fault today either. We are together, always." With that she calmed down some as she imagined Starrk would too. Once the smoke from the volley of attacks had dissipated, Mask de Masculine lied on the floor, struggling to get off from his stomach. There was blood pouring down his side, his abdomen, his back; everywhere. Still struggling to get up, he seemed upset, very upset. "No. No. No. I will not be bested by fools like you!" he screamed at them. "Star, Flash!! he yelled by placing his hands in a triangle over his mask as an extremely powerful star-shaped beam fired off in Starrk's direction. The beam was of such intensity that it could easily pierce and cut in half a Captain-level opponent, although Starrk was much faster at the moment, and much stronger than that.
In that time that he fired the attack, he managed, though hardly, to get up on his feet. Suddenly, a very bright light began to emanate from his belt. Almost in an instant, a towering light of dense energy shot up into the sky, likely hundreds even thousands of meters into the stratosphere. Upon dissipation, Super Star now possessed a star-shaped halo atop of his head, small wings by his chest, and a large white cape that doubled as his Quincy Vollstanding wings. The power currently being released by the Quincy was just beyond belief. The final release of the Quincy, as Starrk and Lilynette would soon learn, was their most prized possession. Thousands of years ago, it was thought that the rare occurrence increased the power of the user many times more than a Bankai would, a feat not many abilities could claim. However, Vollstanding was nothing like the Letzer Still of the past. Not only had it been made very strong throughout the millennium, but the Quincy could now use it freely without drawbacks. The powers exerted by both opponents was so great that it was nearly impossible to gauge who had a grater power. Such feat could only be accomplished by someone stronger than both of them. There was likely no difference however. The battle was at a point where it could be taken rather easily by one or the other. And there were many things to watch out for. Much like Starrk had access to new and stronger techniques, the same could be assumed from the Quincy. His blut ability would likely have been enhanced tremendously, and there was a chance that a plethora of abilities had not even been displayed yet.
"You fools. Feel the power and the pain of a hero! Extending his arms he smiled and shouted, "Sklaverei!" As he did so, Lilynette could feel a very strange and eerie feeling, almost as if she kept getting punched repeatedly. The, unbelievable as it may have seen, the unthinkable happened. The few ceros that he had evaded, even the cero oscuras, were pulled in his direction. His Sklaverei ability was literally destroying, sucking, and retaking the composition of all the energy-based abilities he had created. Likewise, the same began to happen with the wolves which numbered in the thousand. The more energy he obtained, the more that kept being added to him. In a matter of seconds, his power had grown tremendously and it had soon even surpassed what Starrk currently displayed. Given the intense and numerous blasts fired and the thousands of wolves present, Super Star just kept absorbing them and getting stronger, and stronger. "Starrk! Starrk! Starrk!" cried out Lilynette, in part due to anger, and also due to sheer and raw pain as it seemed that the absorption of the wolves seemed to have affected her as well. She couldn't allow it. If Super Star kept absorbing all the wolves, his power would continue to increase to a point, where, no matter how hard Starrk tried, death would be imminent.
Not caring to ask Starrk first as it was needed, she yelled, "Segunda Etapa: Arruñame, Loba!" As she said so, the wolves that still remained out without being absorbed all dissolved into massive amounts of energy. The energy would travel to Starrk's position where it would begin to spiral in a very fast motion, enveloping him and covering him completely. Hasten it, Super Star kept absorbing more energy with his Sklaverei, even through the spiraling force, but not enough to completely dissipate it. Soon, the spiraling force stopped into a bright light. From there, two beings appeared. One of them was Starrk, the other was Lilynette. Of course, she looked surprisingly different, much older and taller, and stronger. They each had a pair of pistols on their hands and readied for combat. The sklaverei ability would not work on them as they were not an energy attack. Stopping his ability, he simply smiled on, awaiting their movements. By now, Mask de Masculine was extremely strong, with a power that easily exceeded theirs, albeit not for too much. He was bound to have a plethora of abilities, but so did Lilynette and Starrk. Inching her chest she said, "Let's get this over with."
