This was the last piece of the puzzle indeed. Here he would find his answer that he sought most likely. His frame walked into the forest slowly uncaring about them knowing. Vanguard was in an alliance with the Gotei so he doubted they cared. His frame found a rock as he looked around the forest and rivers. It was a decent place to meditate on things. He could feel the reishi in the air moving and pulse. Everything about this place pulled at his memories. He could still feel the mark upon his forehead. This entire thing was extremely fortunate for him as he began to focus now. He could gather energy on earth very easily with his skills. There is an old adage that is said by some people. Work smarter, not harder is how it goes. Ghislain knew for a fact coming here he could absorb ten times the reishi with no trouble. The first thing he needed to do was figure out the flow. He quieted his mind and soul beginning to find the center. This world like many before it had a certain flow and rhythm at which it breathed.
Focusing on the mark now engraved into his skin he felt energy begin pouring into it. He would need to keep his calculations correct as he felt the surge. It was almost addicting to feed energy into the mark. Bringing it where he knew the bounds of the technique. It wasn't something simple or childish here. His training was difficult and not the kind most could do. This required high levels of focus and control. Making sure the amount was precisely where his body could handle it. Figuring out his limits without letting his pride or overconfidence break him. This was the reason not many learned this technique entirely. But in learning it they took a promise into their minds. That they could only use this in dire emergencies. In situations of a crisis where they could let it all out. This technique was perfect for refueling the lost tank of energy you had. Ghislain intended to challenge Mana again someday. His body tightened a bit at that memory as he tried to figure it out.
What kind of energy was needed to defeat the Demon Queen? Was it something in his prowess to do so. Ghislain decided to do something he'd not done in some time. He would open the Emperor's Sanctuary within his mind. As the world faded to black around him and time seemed to pause. Two figures walked towards the male as he sat his cerulean eyes staring at them. "You both know why you're here I take it?"
Hulderic stood giving a shrug of his shoulders as he walked forward. "Ghi-kun, you shouldn't have fought Mana-chan she was way out of your league."
Hulderic as always came across as laid back and strange. His eyes slowly honed in on the first Emperor. He stood silently staring at Ghislain as the two didn't generally get along. "Your impression of her?"
He said directing the question at the first Emperor. The male's eyes looked cold and empty as he gave a slight scoff noise as he smirked. "Way out your realm boy."
Ghislain tapped his forehead showing the mark to the both fo them as it continued filling. "What about this, any techniques or ideas that go with this?"
Hulderic shook his head and glanced back to the other. Yhwach's eyes seemed to narrow a bit more staring at that mark. Ghislain didn't need to really ask with that expression. Yhwach was familiar with it and the user of it most likely. He decided to speak finally as his crimson gaze pierced Ghislain's forehead practical. " The Crescent Seal, so that's your game is it boy? The technique for releasing it is complicated..tch but take it anyways."
He gestured at Ghislain's head and it was there. But oh to those who think this was painless it wasn't. His mind felt like it was splitting open as knowledge came in. He got the general idea of how this technique worked. The Crescent Seal was awoken by feeding it energy. The energy could be used for several purposes.
Healing was one of them that interested him but there was another. The Crescent Scythe technique was something that went along with it. The other thing was what he'd seen as a boy and the form was poorly used. The two former Emperors faded into the background as Ghislain's eyes opened. He'd gathered a lot of energy here much faster. The question was who could he call out this far for a match. Testing these techniques out would be important to everything else. The tattoos symbolized the technique done correctly. As for this scythe technique. It seemed to be used to cut everything around the user into pieces. Interesting that he'd never encountered a user during the war. Yhwach must have offended that monk fairly bad for him not to get his slimy hands on it. But alas this training would continue for now till he could figure it out. He would send a note to the only figure he could think would be able to aid him. Though she was busy with a revival of sorts for the Gotei. He guessed the Kenpachi herself wouldn't mind squaring off with a Quincy. He sent the bird off as he focused on his objective and would see what came to mind.
