I. Basic Information» Name:
Baraggan Louisenbairn » Age:
Unknown: Assumed to be from times immemorable. » Appearance Age:
70 years of Age» Gender:
Prior Ruler Of Las Noches, and King of Hueco Mundo. Prior Segunda Espada Of The Espada. » Appearance Written:
Baraggan is stout but compact in stature, hovering roughly around 5’5 in height. However don’t let this fool you because baraggan is strapping, and heavy. Roughly 198 pounds of pure muscle, he is built very much so like a bear, and his skin is tanned and leathery with age. His one good eye is of a yellow-brown hue and often glimmers with arrogance, a kind of air of dominance that has seeped into his very bones. It is feeling of arrogance that stems from his notion that his existance is supposed to rule over all, and that those he encounters are unworthy insects, only good to alleviate his boredom.
Moving onto his face, however old baraggan may actually be, aestetically speaking his body visually looks to be that of a robust 70 year old male. Upon his face a jagged scar adorns his right eye, it should be noted that whatever damage that has happened here has made it so that this eye never opens, and should be assumed to be non-functional. Baraggans jaw is very blocky, and adorning his mouth which often can be seen in it’s default; a heavy frown, is a thick white beard that obscures most of the upper portion of his mouth when he talks. Other things visually of note for his face is that his face is furrowed with lines, the sign of his “visual” old age.
Delving into depth about Baraggans body, one would find that his body underneath his clothing has a few scars, these scars adorn the well chiseled pectoral muscles of his chest, and one adorns the trapezius muscle of his back. Other then that, if one shredded baraggans clothing they’d find his physique is. . .robust to say the least. The thick coiled muscles that roil visibly beneath his skin could be depicted as befitting that of a barbarian, combine this with his straight posture, and regal air he has all the visual makings of a barbarian lord.
Moving beyond the physical make up of his body, Baraggans remnant hollow mask is befitting of his previous (and if you ask him current) status of the undisputed king of hueco mundo, that is to say his mask is actually a five-pointed crown that adorns the front of his head. It sits upon his wild white hair. As well regarding hollow holes, Baraggans sits upon his chest, between two crisscrossing scars.
Finally to move to his clothing, the concept of plain but regal would befit it. He wears a white espada uniform with black fur trimming around the neck, and upon his arms he wears » Appearance Image:

V. Racial Techniques/Abilities/Skills» Racial Abilities:
Enhanced hierro: Baraggans Hierro is known to be extremely durable, even 400+ years ago baraggan louisenbairn was capable of taking head on blows from Soi-fon’s bankai while only losing an arm in the process. However after 400 years have passed the hierro of the ruler of las noches has only grown more terrifying. If he was to match up with the Soi-fon of 400 years ago he’d be able to take her all out bankai attack multiple times without suffering more than a few light scratches. Baraggans hierro is strong enough to take full on frontal assaults from those of his same tier for prolonged periods of time while only sustaining minor injuries; and is capable of taking all out assaults with his body simply because of his hierro while only sustaining severe non-life threatening wounds. I.E if he was to take the full on attack of someone of similar tier, he’d be capable of resisting it purely with his hierro while only sustaining wounds on par with losing an arm and some of his shoulder, or having his legs blown off.
Sonido Expert: While not well known for it, even during the fake karakura arc, Baraggan had a masterful grasp over the utilization of Sonido, he was easily capable of appearing and contacting the shinigami soi-fon who was known for her speed, and implementing his ability to age her arm without her being able to react to it. Currently Baraggan has attained a moderate increase in his Sonido ability, and has become capable of utilizing some unique abilities with this particular tool in the arrancars arsenal.
(Requires thread participant permission in combat settings)
Paso de desaparición: English translation is Vanishing Step. This step utilizes sonido at such a high speed that one might confuse baraggans ability with simple teleportation. However this sonido which is exclusively used for close combat was created after baraggan further developed the time dilation field aspect of Senescencia. However because it was developed utilizing Senescenia it has the strict criteria that the time dilation field be active while it is in use.
What paso de desaparicion does is essentially causes the opponent to lose site of baraggan within close range and most of the time be unable to perceive him until he’s already right next to the opponent. Of course there are those who would be able to barely perceive him as he appears besides them, because of the fact that those with extremely high cognitive skills and speed levels process the world at a vastly higher speed than most. However for a vast majority of the world, the moment baraggan vanishes it will appear as if he simultaneously appeared by him, simply as if he warped from one spot to the other at the exact same time.
How does this happen? Well for barragan his time dilation field has the effect of slowing down other people's time while allowing him to maintain his own time. Originally baraggan was only able to utilize this in a 100 meter bubble of himself during the fake karakura arc, however after 400 years his control and development of this ability has increased to the magnitude that he is capable of evoking this ability for up to 5 people within a half mile radius at a time (of 1 tier below him) 3 of equal tier, and 2 of higher tier. So with this increase he has become capable of utilizing time dilation with his sonido to create this unique technique of so called “instantaneous movement”
Granted there are instances where it can be dodged. Such as those of higher speed stat than his sonido stat could be capable of avoiding this technique by some margin, as well as those of a similar or higher high speed movement stat could avoid this narrowly if they have a focus OR mental deduction stat of advanced or master and above. The reason being because of the time disparity between baraggan and the one he’s appearing by, it’d require one to have processing or the ability to track him through such time disparities ontop of processing his already quick speed and grasp of sonido.
Now it should be of note that while this technique can be utilized in combat, the time dilation field must be active the turn prior for this technique to be capable of being utilized, as well it can only be utilized with the half mile radius of the time dilation field.
VI. Physical Parameters
Barbaric Strength: Baraggan even 400 years ago had frightening strength. Being capable of cutting through buildings with ease from distances of over a mile, merely from the force of the wind that had been displaced from the bladed edge of his axe. After 400 years, Baraggans barbaric strength has become something truly fearsome. A swing of his axe is capable of displacing earth, rending chasms in the ground and causing tremors. A punch from him holds cataclysmic force. Demolishing large regions would be considered childs play for him at his current level of physical strength. A good example of this would be if baraggan punched the ground in the middle of a mid-sized city. The force of his punch would be great enough that it would demolish everything in the central part of that city, tremors and aftershocks being capable of reducing the surrounding buildings to rubble.
VI. Sealed Powers » Zanpakutô Name:
Arrogante» Zanpakutô Appearance:
[What does your Arrancar's zan look like? A picture or written bio will do. You can also do both if you wish]» Unique Power:
(セネスセンシア, Senesusenshia; Spanish for "Senescence"): Baraggan is the Espada who represents the Aspect of Death having to do with aging brought on by time.
Time Dilation Field: Baraggan can project a field around him that slows time, thereby reducing the speed of any target which comes near him and makes attempts to attack practically useless. This gives him sufficient time to counter attack in real time while his opponent is extremely slowed. He used this aspect of the ability in his fight against Suì-Fēng and Ōmaeda so they were incapable of landing a hit on him.
Age Acceleration: Baraggan was originally the Espada of Old Age, and his zanpakuto is capable of accelerating the age of an object upon contact. A good example of what happens if baraggan is capable of touching those vastly weaker than him which was what happened during the fake karakura town arc. Upon touching Soi-fon’s arm he was capable of causing the age of their arm to rapidly increase until the bones became brittle to the point that they broke.
Granted with baraggans age acceleration there are some limitations, such as for Kido that baraggan comes into contact with. Kido levels 1-45 baraggan is capable of decaying through in a single post from those of equal tier so long as he utilizes three cero’s worth of energy to increase the power of his age acceleration. Kido Levels 45-60 he’d be able to decay through in two turns for those of equivalent tiers. From the off chance he’s hit with a kido from the 60-90 level range it’d require three turns if the kido was utilized from someone of equivalent tier. 90-95 requires four turns to decay through. 95-99 requires six turns to decay through if purely utilizing Age Acceleration.
However for Kido if it’s from someone of a vastly lower tier, such as if for some reason a 1-2 was capable of casting kurohitsugi, yes it’s a level 90+ Hadō, however because of the vast difference in their energies the time would be reduced to two turns. Vise versa if Baraggan was say 0-4 and a 0-2 cast a level 90 kido on him he’d require Nine turns instead of six. So Quality of energy and amount of energy has a major impact on how long it takes him to decay through kido.
For baraggan to be capable of pulling off feats like with soi-fon touching their arm to cause the bones to age to the point of breaking, or aging defenses until they turn brittle to dust, there are certain things that affect the time that it takes baraggan to actually cause this to happen. 1) Baraggan is affected by the durability of the object that he is trying to age rapidly upon contact. 2) Baraggan can only age things in base form that he physically comes into contact with. 3) Baraggan can speed up this process at cost of massive amounts of energy. 4) This process can be slowed down if the opponent possesses regenerative qualities unless a tier disparity is present. 5) Baraggan works on an affected site, so his contact aging happens within 7-8 inches of the point of contact.
1: The durability of the opponent, be it a hierro, or just plane density of bone mass, muscle mass. These things affect the speed at which baraggan is capable of aging the bones, muscles and skin of the contact site. For example if someone is unfortunate enough to have Beginner Durability, or Hierro, a graze might be enough to cause serious muscle atrophy, weakening their strength by a skill level or more depending on the amount of energy, and the intent behind baraggan’s utilization of aging. At Adept a graze will cause them to feel a sense of weakness, their bones will become less stable, and they might find the targeted point becoming vastly weaker, however at this point a mere graze wouldn’t cause them detrimental affects on par with dropping a skill level. Those of Advanced levels at the base level of baraggans power requires not a graze but a full on contact. I.E baraggan being able to punch their shoulder rather than just brushing by them. At the master level it requires two or three blows before weakness in the affected point would be noticable, I.E he’d have to hit them twice in the same place, or have prolonged contact with the affected site before noticable affects would transpire. At Grandmaster at baraggans base level it would require a flurry of blows, or prolonged contact AT a base level
for weakness and aging to transpire.
2: Baraggans ghastly ability to accelerate the age of the affected region in his sealed state is based exclusively upon touch. Unless there is less than seven inches between his fist and the target, in such situations then they would feel lessened affects. This is why Baraggans ability to age is based upon two distinct methods. 1)Direct Contact, and 2) Collateral Contact
Direct contact as you might guess has to do with instances that baraggan has been capable of directly contacting flesh, bone, a zanpakuto, or something that is directly connected to the target. Direct contact is extremely powerful even at a base level, mere touches of his hands can age steel to the point that it breaks apart even under the slightest exertion, aging bones to the point that they can break with merely the caress of a gust of wind. His touch is lethality incarnate, and it simply brings about ruin to those that come into contact with it. Direct contact is further subcategorized as Indirect Contact, and Direct contact. Indirect Contact
is when baraggan either grazes them with the intent of harm, or they hit baraggan when he’s employing his aging abilities. In either instance for living
beings they will get a weakened result of baraggans normal aging affects. Roughly ½ the power it normally would be (scaled based on how much energy he’s outputting to utilize his aging abilities)
. Direct contact as the name suggests is any action that directly impacts another being that was used with the intent to age. These attacks be they headbutts, body blows, foot blows, shoulder blows excetera will all have baraggans full power imbued into them.
Collateral contact means when an attack misses but it is within several inches of the opponent. I.E they just barely dodge by a hair’s breadth. As baraggans power has grown, he has become capable of utilizing his contact in a very limited area outside the opponent if he’s using his powers over prolonged periods of time. There is a seven inch window on any striking point to which his aging powers can at a reduced amount of power affect their opponent. This range is seven inches from any striking point. At this range his aging capabilities will be limited to only ¼ of their scaled level of power.
3: Baraggans power does has a base level, however he is capable of increasing the amount of energy that he exherts into each of his blows to increase the speed of his age acceleration. Granted the energy required per turn to increase the base power of his decay is absolutely monumental. For example, to double the rate specified above, it requires 3% of his entire energy reserves per post. Tripling it requires 7% of his entire energy reserves per post.
Energy Decay: Baraggans age acceleration works on much more than simply organic or inorganic substances. It can tangibly affect the bonds of spiritual attacks so long as he comes into direct contact with the attack utilizing a point of contact such as his hand, or a point of his body. Because of this, baraggan is capable of decaying through minor attacks from those of equal tier so long as he comes into direct contact with it in his sealed state. An example of what could be decayed through his touch fairly easy would be energy attacks from someone of say a slightly lower or similar tier in their base state or Maybe
their first release. Baraggan is capable of weakening energy attacks from bankai level combatants of similar tier by ½ their normal damage, however he cannot completely negate them. A shikokai level combatant he can weaken their energy attacks by ⅕ their optimal strength.
However, there are some rules associated with this. As with everything the quantity and quality of an attack can affect the rate of decay. For example, it’s been stated that Baraggan can significantly weaken and in some rare instances completely disperse energy attacks from those of similar tier while they are in their base or first release. However if it was say an all out attack for that release state instead it would only weaken the attack by ¼ . If it was an all out attack from a similar tier in bankai state it would only weaken it by ⅛ and if it was an all out attack from someone of shikokai state it would weaken the attack by a tenth it’s original power.
The ability allows him to accelerate the age of whatever he touches, causing the appropriate damage which comes with aging. He aged Suì-Fēng's left arm to the point where its bones broke after becoming very brittle

VII. Event Only/Explicit permission: Segunda Etapa» Segunda Etapa Name:
His segunda etapa name is the same as his original Zanpakuto name. » Segunda Etapa Release Phrase:
“Age. ARROGANTE!!!“ » Release Actions:
When releasing arrogante into it’s segunda etapa form, baraggan holds his axe away from him horizontally on his right side, only holding onto the very end of the axe’s pole. Afterwards it will appear that baraggan has been completely covered by respira, which will expand to consume everything within two mile. Unlike a standard respira this will not decay living things; however it will erode everything that is non living, bar zanpakuto blades and player weapons. Soon after the respira envelopes this two mile radius, visibly baraggans weapon itself will appear to decay, aging until the point that it turns to ash. Only then will baraggan louisenbairn enter his segunda etapa. » Segunda Etapa Appearance:
Appearance wise, Baraggan doesn’t change, however all the gold that originally adorned his cloak ages significantly, looking as if it was millenia old. All color has been tarnished on his cloak, making it so that you can visibly see the former god-king of hueco mundo’s ancientness. Tattered and worn this cloak almost looks like once befitting of death itself. His bones look worn with time, rather than brilliant and pristine as they were in his ressureccion, and finally the crown that adorns his head seems to have been decayed by respira, so the once proud pointed tops seem to be mottled with holes, eaten away and left in a state of decay by the passage of time.
In short, The appearance of Baraggan’s segunda etapa embodies the very concept of old age, and he looks as if he has weathered the passage of eons. A dusty skeleton. However there is more than aesthetic changes to baraggan louisenbairn after he ascends to the very pinnacle of his powers. Each and every movement of his creaks as if he would fall apart at a moment's notice. Each breath lets out a soft blackened fog. His very body exudes a pressure of ancientness, of his dignity as a ruler. It demands subservience and suffocates everything beneath it’s disdain. » Segunda Etapa Enhancements:

IX. Role Play Sample» Roleplay Sample: “Can’t you comprehend it?”
His tone rang with authority, with an unspoken intimidation that demanded that all prostrate before it. Within his gaze the being before him was not a person, no it was an ant. Insignificant and undeserving of his might and splendor. Indeed as the being lay there, they were broken. The soft crimson that was their blood accentuated the normally pristine white sands of hueco mundo. His one good eye glanced across those sands.
Once it had all been his, a kingdom without end. Everything within his gaze, and everything beyond his gaze had been his, it was his right to rule over these insignificant creatures, their lives belong to him, and he could dictate how those lives played out however he wished for them too. It had been so once, and it would be so again. Here with the ruins of his empire at his back, Baraggan Louisenbairn rested his chin on a clenched fist, his throne of bones settled upon the sands.
His eyes stared into the wreckage, the ruins of his glory days and a small frown graced his regal features, his brow furrowed causing for the wrinkles and lines of his old face to become shadowed against the moonlight. His fist slowly clenched tighter, as his voice was accented by the rage that he felt at coming back to hueco mundo to only find that someone else was now ruling over it. ”..How i will make these upstarts tremble? “
Baraggan rose from his throne, his feet firmly resting on the ground before he glanced down disdainfully at the humanoid figure that had lay there broken at the foot of his throne. It was a member of shadow fall, a demon. He had heard that this filth had tainted las noches, and of the organization that the pitiful espada had surrendered themselves to. Laughable, that the race he had once ruled over had fallen to the point that it needed another to govern over it.
As he looked upon his broken kingdom, he could feel a white hot anger building within him slowly but surely. First it was that brat aizen, who had taken what was his and forced him to be subservient. Now, it was someone else who had taken what was his! It would be the subtle things, such as how baraggans frown deepened, and how a ferocity presented itself in his one good eye that would give away his rage.
In his anger he stomped down on the broken body of the demon. The force behind his blow being enough to completely shatter the demons sternum and put a crater in the ground. He tilted his head back and roared in his fit of anger. ”..WRITHE, YOU INSIGNIFICANT WORMS!!”
His body shifted as he punted the broken body of the demon into a broken wall, causing it to shatter immediately under the kinetic force the demon's body was carrying. Even now baraggans anger was like an open flame burning everything up voraciously, and the insect before him was the focus of the brunt of it, an enemy. Who was he to care about these ant-like existences? They were only good for venting his anger, and alleviating his boredom.
With the sound of loud static, barragan vanished utilizing sonido. He appeared in front of the demons broken body as if he had stepped through space, glancing down at him with blatant disinterest in his gaze. The ant lay there, its body broken and unmoving as barragans seething anger seemed to abate just abit, his frown partially hidden by his long white mustache as he shifted his gaze to glance in the direction he could feel a vast number of spiritual signatures, his open palm silently curled into a fist.
He would regain his throne, and he would subject those who had dared to take it from him, the original ruler of hueco mundo to a fate far worse than death. No matter how long it took him, he’d show these upstarts the consequences of his wrath. He walked back to his throne of bones , his meaty fist slamming into it’s surface. This caused for the throne to shatter to reveal the handle of his double sided battle-axe. Hefting it from the wreckage, he then let the pole of the battle axe rest against his shoulder.
Then with a crackle of sound he’d vanish, heading to reclaim his throne.
