I. Basic Information» Name:
True: 492» Gender:
None» Appearance Written:
Charlie normally wears the same plain maid outfit she's always worn. She never has found a good reason to take it off, since reacquiring it. It's a rather filthy, torn thing, the white segments and bonnet having long gone brown, several parts being torn and tattered. Ribbons hang here and there, some areas torn off, others the ribbon barely intact. A button hangs from the chest area, the second one long gone and never replaced. What could have been a lovely looking outfit if fixed up, befits how she sees and feels about herself, an ugly torn shadow of what could have been. The outfit consists of a tattered apron and an old style bonnet as additions.
For the remnants of her mask, they appear as two short antler-like structures being held together by a thin white arc. The antlers appear to have broken down much shorter than they were before. As for her Hollow hole location, it's right where one's heart would be.» Appearance Image:
II. Personality» Personality:
Even if she is out in public, Charlise's being appears closed. She keeps herself in a cage of her own making for means she either can't remember or bear. She often times hides things about either her past or about herself for the sake of... Well.. She assumes she should be acting this way, from how she remembers her natural life. Being withdrawn is almost second nature to her, often times keeping comments or thoughts or even opinions to herself.
Charlie, ever since she was alive, has had a giant problem with her perception of the world. Some have a warped perception of life, others live in absolute fantasy, but Charlise...
Charlise, particularly in her spurts, believes nothing actually exists and she's the only thing that truly exists. When she has an episode, she thinks everything around her is nothing but a figment of her diseased mind. When she gets into these episodes, she constantly questions those around her if they're actually real, if they can actually think, if they're actually what makes a human. Along with this, she often times touches things often or harms herself or others, as if trying to break the "illusion". Only recently has she made a dangerous physical effort in her panic to tell if anything's real or not.
Coupled with her other traits, Charlise has become a very confused person. She often times questions what she should be doing, what she is, what her role in the world is... But can never find any answers. Most of the time she just follows instincts and memories and thinks, "I'm supposed to be doing this, right?". She often times is puzzled about her actions and decisions and how she's supposed to feel about things.
Often times, Charlise is a very depressed woman. It can easily be mistaken for sadness or just being a little under the weather for a day. She often times mopes rather dramatically, but really she's inflicted with a terrible sense of misery. This misery and her other traits lead to a depression. She doesn't take care of herself very well, often times forgetting to eat, eating too much, sleeping too little or too much, plenty of things that affect her negatively. She even can become ill in a sense from how badly she treats herself.
She hates herself. Her hair, her eyes, her very being, is poison to her. Whenever an up arrives about herself, she immediately pulls it down. She believes if she's already on the ground, she can't be knocked down. She often times spins the positivity about her on it's head and covers her ears at compliments and even things as big as declarations of love or family.
This woman says sorry for almost everything, highlighting her self esteem's low level. She bows a lot, dips her head, and often times shows submission. Even if she doesn't know how to feel about things, she often times naturally tries to avoid upsetting or offending people.
Easily Bored -
Though she normally resorts to more moral-based decisions, she gets bored very easily. This boredom paired with depression and disassociation can lead to very undesirable outcomes like dead loved ones, paired with confusion leads to her continuously going through a cycle of wondering if she could, should or shouldn't have done something.
III. History» History:
Two years after her elder sister's death, Charlise was born. Even with that birth, she immediately had pressure placed upon her. They encouraged her to stay inside and study and learn to be more "lady-like", not being allowed any sort of toys. It was books, books, and more books from the moment she could comprehend objects and people.
Because her family was quite poor, they had her enlisted as a maid in order to help pull in money. She was often times discouraged from interacting with others, often times being told to be seen and not heard. She had a curfew and everything until they had forced her to become a maid, which she had no choice but to accept.
As a young girl, being prepared to work for a family. They tried spreading word of her until they struck gold; a rather wealthy family was willing to allow her to work in their home but for a price; she had to live with them and stay in the home and work nearly full time to be paid a rather hefty price. They wanted the rather beautiful girl to be with them almost constantly to be looked at and the like, much like a statue.
Considering she had no power over their choice, her parents accepted in haste and sent her and her very little amount of belongings to the family's hands. To them it sounded like a good deal to work in the home and be paid, but they didn't exactly foresee the family's treatment of her. The family consisted of a father, mother, grandmother, and two children, a boy and girl about two or three years apart. She was set to work on the first day she stepped foot in the home, which was a pretty modest size for people of their social stature. She was set to live in a corner of the basement they had set up for her, which was quite damp and stunk of mold. She disliked her living conditions but knew very well she had no control over her situation or decisions, so she went with it.
She spent years cleaning, watching the children, taking care of the grandmother (who wasn't a very nice person to her for being prettier than her, by the by). She practically grew with the family, but the longer she spent with them was the more her mental state deteriorated. Working day and night wasn't good on her mind and body, having her develop horrid physical symptoms along with mental symptoms from the stress. She originally had issues with self esteem and self care, but they only got worse with the work and treatment. Even so, she still worked, despite looking and feeling like she could drop over at any moment.
Both of the parent's children had begun growing an interest in her. They both did the occasional flirt when they were tweens and soon teens, but the slightly older female wasn't interested in either of their attempts. She only saw them as ungrateful brats who thought they could get anything they demanded for. She tried to get both of them, particularly the girl, to understand she just wasn't interested and they weren't going to have her.
When she was doing another cleaning session at night, the girl had asked her into the bathroom, bawling her eyes out. Feeling a little concern for the girl considering she normally didn't cry so much unless it was over some brute who had kicked her to the curb and they would have some lady talk, but this time took a much more dangerous route. When asked to run a bath for her, while her back was turned, the girl had come up behind her and almost immediately wrapped a ribbon around her neck. She snapped that the woman would be her's, even if she had to take her by force, that she would dress her up like a puppy and she could be her pet forever. The woman panicked, causing herself to slip on the mat below her in an attempt to run while pulling the girl's hands away from the strangling ribbon, causing her to hit her throat against the edge of the bathtub, falling forwards into the filling water. The younger girl backed away as she slowly drowned to death, losing oxygen second after second, drool and such prevent her from breathing properly, being upside-down in the water with her arms pressed behind her until she stopped moving after minutes of suffering, her lungs filling with water.
At first there was nothing, but then there was something. She opened her eyes, and saw that she was in the bathroom still. But something was... Different. She saw her legs hanging out of the bathtub, and the girl staring at the scene in horror. She tried to talk to the girl, but it didn't seem she heard her. She walked forth, hearing a clanging and soon a gnawing noise as she looked to her chest, a chain with mouths protruding from between her breasts. She watched in a mild amount of horror as the girl panicked, pulling her body from the water, soon pulling the corpse through the hallways and to the yard. She had removed her clothing, hiding her in the garden's shed. The deceased woman only stared at her own corpse in mild disappointment. Such a bland, overworked life just to be stripped and thrown in the shed without a second thought.
She spent a few months lingering in the house, watching the family's confusion of her disappearance, the girl keeping her clothing and doing some unsightly things with her outfit. Soon when the chain became shorter and shorter, she decided to leave. Her emotional attachment was no longer there for them, she questioned if they were even real. Everything seemed to fragment to her into meaningless white noise. Soon the chain had been completely eaten away and she quietly wondered what would happen to her, if it meant she would just fade from existence or something worse.
Definitely, something worse. A long ways into the woods, she had finally given out, and became a Hollow. The series of events after changing were a blank to her, nearly no thoughts or consideration put into her actions. Anyone who arrived or died in the forest was consumed by her, though she never left the trees for some reason.
After some events, it lead up to her removing her mask. There was no recollection or thought as to why or how she did it, but it happened. She regained a full sense of sentience, but felt a lingering sense of emptiness, like she didn't do something she was supposed to. An idea popped in her mind, which caused her to return to the home she had worked in such a long time ago. She did look much different than before, but still approached as to do something she thought she should have done forever ago.
Set the house on fire of course. She had cleaned it thousands of times, why not mess it up for once? While people were screaming and running from the home, she merely walked inside, and looked into the old rooms she was oh so familiar with... Well sort of. She just knew she was there and she cleaned in there, no emotional attachment.
Soon she arrived into another room and was met with the young mistress herself... Well she wasn't so young anymore. Quite withered and old. She had an outfit in her hands, her quite old and tattered maid outfit. She couldnt move from her chair, she could only stare at the intruder as she had grabbed sewing scissors and had them dive into her old wrinkly neck, leaving them there and grabbing her old clothing, leaving the home from a window as the front was full of people.
She changed into these clothes, staring at her reflection in a nearby fountain. She tried to remind herself of how she looked beforehand, but nothing came. Nothing seemed to matter...
And so she wandered the earth, like a phantom with no purpose.

VI. Sealed Powers » Zanpakutô Name:
開花菊（Kaika Kiku）Flowering Chrysanthemum» Zanpakutô Appearance:
» Unique Power:
Charlise's powers are associated with nature itself. Not just plants, but the very essence of nature. Anything not manmade, she has a hand in.
Animal Speech: She can both understand and speak any animal's tongue. Though is mostly comprised of understanding and preforming certain mannerisms, they all can be translated out into sentences that one or the other can understand. Though it doesnt necessarily mean the animal will be on her side, however. Even if they can understand each other, it doesn't mean they'll like or trust or work together. Sometimes the animal can be too dumb or simple to cooperate fluently, mostly insects and some kinds of other animals. Charlise uses this rather often, but unintentionally. There's no need to "learn" the languages, they're already there. Charlise just has to know what movements or vocals to use, much like knowing the words to a language but not knowing how to formulate them.
Manipulation - Charlise is able to do many things to bend plants to her will. She's able to make them grow or recede quickly, and even go as far as bend their shape. However doing this too quickly can give the plant severe stress and even accelerate it's death, and if the plant dies it can no longer be used. Slow and careful use is encouraged with controlling them as to pat out their use to the longest extent, therefore they cannot be used as a quick guard or something of the like unless the plant is more useful in duration. How much the growth is depends on the plant, plants like grass being able to be lengthened and bent easily and a plant like an oak taking a longer time to get to the desired size.
Creation - Charlie can literally grow plants on her body without the need of seeds. However it takes at least two posts per full grown plant, like a bush. She cannot grow things like full grown trees or other large kinds of flora on her body since her body mass can't accommodate for the large size of the plant. She can grow a branch of a tree, but that's as far as she can go as far as a tree. It's strenuous to continuously conjure up full grown plants well, as the more she tries to make one, the more short lived and tiny it becomes. She can even constitute new plants of her own creation which can have a variety of effects based on what plants were combined. These plants that can grow on her body can be used in Plant Manipulation as well. For example she can make a strong type of wood if focusing on wood alone and make a temporary weapon or means of defense (In conjunction with a larger plant of course).
She is able to heal much faster than usual due to her body's makeup, giving herself much more vitality than the average arrancar. Smaller wounds scab up and fade in seconds, large gashes take mere hours to heal (provided rest is available, if not it can take much longer, a day or even days), and whole limbs can be grown back in a week or two. Though a huge factor to how she heals is stress. If her blood pressure or stress level goes up, wounds, especially serious ones, take quite longer to heal.
Walking - Though unable to control the water fully itself at this point of time, Charlise is able to minimally control water at her feet to behave like land. Waves are like moving, sprawling hills, thus are harder to walk on. Still water is like walking on everyday pavement or dirt.
Purification - Not too much to this, just that she's able to return water to it's natural state with a simple touch to it. All contaminants or additions to the water separate and dissolve into mist.
Solar Blade - By absorbing sunlight into her arm or blade (Which takes 3 posts), it causes either to glow with a bright white light. When swung, it sends off a slash of pure concentrated sunlight towards the target. If it goes as far as 20 feet, it harmlessly dissipates, but even if it doesn't get that far it slowly loses more and more concentration the longer it goes, making it best to use this ability at close range. If it hits, it can burn the target quite badly, not to the point of death or whole-body burns, but enough to leave severe burns on the area it hits, which causes the area to catch on fire, or if skin blister up and boil. If it hits something like a wall, it leaves a burn mark reminiscent of a darker skid mark on the place it hits.
Lunar Blade - Slightly different than it's sibling technique but the same principles apply. Her arm or blade charges with moonlight (Taking 1 post), and lets it loose at the target. Instead of burning the target if it hits, it freezes the area it hits. If a person is hit by this ability, it causes their body temperature to lower by 20 degrees Fahrenheit at maximum. Characters who can manipulate their body temperature or are fire/heat based can quickly gain the degrees they lost back compared to anyone else. The real effect of this ability shines when the target is hit by it repetitively and gets to freezing temperatures. The target doesn't just get cold, they actually start developing frost on their body, and if they aren't resilient enough to survive the freezing, they will end up losing consciousness or even dying. These effects only occur with multiple (At least 5 or 6) hits.
(Note: Lunar Blade only occurs when a moon is shining, and Solar Blade only occurs when a sun is shining, therefore normally it is restricted to day and night respectively.
N'other note: Both Lunar and Solar Blade charge due to her body makeup being able to create plants, so her body behaves similarly to one. She can absorb and store the sun's or the moon's light through this method.)
Resilience Against the Elements:
No matter how hot she gets, or how cold it becomes, if it occurs in nature she's able to travel through the weather or climate without any issues or drawbacks. Low oxygen? She can manage. Freezing temperatures? No problems. High winds? Won't stir her. If there is a sort of actual drawback to this, it has to be that it makes her more tired to travel through hard conditions. If she were on a mountain with very little access to oxygen for long periods of time, it exhausts her to the point of falling asleep where she travels, which could potentially lead to death since if she cannot be found in harsh constant conditions, not even hunger will wake her. If she is removed from the conditions and placed in a normal area, she'll regain consciousness.
Immunity against Plant Poisons:
If it's poison from a metal or other origins, she will still suffer from it's effects. If it's origin is from a plant, it will only pass harmlessly through her body until it is excreted through some form of waste. If one were to consume say, her saliva or blood while the poison is still active in her body, they will suffer the effects instead if they themselves aren't immune.
VII. Resurrección» Resereccion Name:
Sora no Hana (Empty Flower)» Resereccion Release Phrase:
Saku (Bloom)» Release Actions:
Charlise needs to open herself up in order to release her sword, hence the phrase 'Saku' being use. She can't pretend to be open, she needs to let loose and allow her heart to open up, to show proper emotion, to allow her strength to come. The simplest form of this action, is a true smile.» Resereccion Appearance:
(Just an idea of what her horns look like.)
Her full appearance doesn't change too much, but there are some differences.
- Her ears become pointier with black tips
- Her skin pales
- Large and small black splotches appear on her skin (Less prominent around her face, hands, and feet, but more prominent towards her torso, turning it mostly black)
- Her nails become tougher and a bit longer (but not quite sharp)
- Her eyes grow a bit in size along with pupil dilation, making her eyes mostly black. They always have an empty appearance
- Her eyelashes are almost petal-like, being rather striking with a white color and much longer
- Black and white flowers grow in her hair
- She receives a black, white tipped deer tail with a few smaller white spots
- A large black and white flower appears over her heart
- Her hair turns grey
- The hollow mask gains longer horns, though the additions are black and crumble away when she returns to her standard form.» Resereccion Abilities:
The Forest's Mist -
By breathing out mist (Which can cover an area of 20 feet), she is able to preform illusions within the mist as a projection. Anything she thinks of, she can make an illusion of. However these illusions are primarily projections via perception, so it's impossible for them to have any physical effect on the world. They cannot leave the mist either. For now they are primarily see through, only being able to take up one and rarely two or three colors not related to one another. At it's current stage, it's quite easy to tell they aren't real, but they can provide as a distraction. Though in turn breathing in this mist can leave whoever has done so more vulnerable to attacks on the mind from other abilities she uses.
Confusion Inducement -
By asking a particular question that affects her opponent in particular (ex: Questions on identity, questions on relationships, etc.). If the target themselves are uncomfortable with or are in a feeble position in answering the question, the true effects of the ability take place. Depending on how much of an impact the subject has on the opponent, it can effect them in different ways. From mere irritability and slightly unfocused movements to an absolute breakdown or even worse, this ability makes the target remember everything about the subject if it actually bothers them. Though, she needs to have knowledge of what pushes the character's buttons in order for the ability to have any impact. This ability can only be brought into effect if the questioned has breathed in some of The Forest's Mist.
The Forest's Songs -
By singing a tune akin to a lullaby, Charlise can cause the subconscious and conscious minds of those around her to subtly link. It does not recognize friend nor foe, it simply affects people nearby. Whatever occurs in the subconscious of the listener can be brought to the forefront in the form of hallucinations. Those with strong willpower won't be bothered by what is brought up (If not something that is directly affecting them emotionally). The hallucinations can have a cascade of effects such as the listener thinking they've become a child, whole landscape changes, thinking creatures of the unreal have come into reality, etc. The listener's mental state is also a factor, as if someone is normally calm and doesnt experience too many terrifying dreams or tucked in fears, it won't be as intense as someone who say has either mental disabilities or has had brushes with insanity. In some cases it can be more helpful than harmful, since pleasant visions aren't alienated for being pleasant; The effects are primarily on the person's mental state. If someone is farther than 30 feet or has an efficient way of blocking their ears (earplugs, headphones, etc.) they won't fall under the effects of the song.
