Event Name: A Significant Absence
Date(s): Disappearance: Friday, April 26, 2013 and Reemergence: Sunday, July 9, 2017
Event Summary: On April 26th, Demon King Abaddon made his appearance miles outside of Karakura Central. The leader of the Vanguard, Genpaku Arishima, joined Lieutenant of the Fourth Seat of the Gotei Thirteens First Division in battling the fierce demon. While facing both Genpaku and Kaminari, Abaddon fled to one of his many dimensions in order to prevent the interference of multiple forces throughout the world. Genpaku and Kaminari followed Abaddon, intent on killing him and ridding the world of the Demon King. The battle went on for quite some time, though time was difficult to measure within one of Abaddon’s realms. To bring the long and hard-fought battle to a close, Kaminari finally released her zanpakuto, immediately moving into her shikokai and successfully used it on Abaddon. This permanently ripped away the Demon’s power, shredding it like paper, but in turn shredded her own essence, causing her memories to be taken with it.
With Abaddon’s defeat and Kaminari’s mind wiped clean, the realm began to collapse around them. Genpaku rescued Kaminari from the realms destruction by pulling her through the nearest portal he could find. The two safe in a realm that was no their own, they spent their time training to get Kaminari up to a decent level. What was four years for those they left back on Earth was merely eight months for the two of them. Having found an old man with the ability to send them home, the two fled that realm to return to Earth. Unfortunately, they were separated upon entry and Abaddon returned with them.
