I. Personality» Personality:
Solas is, among other things, a woman who seems rather childish in her way of interacting with the world around her. She is constantly curious, seeking new experiences where she may be able to find them, even if it comes at something of a danger to her survival. One could potentially liken this way of existence to a thrill-seeker who wants to live dangerously for the sheer fact of living dangerously, though she will maintain self-preservation in instances where the danger to her life is not worth the information gained - whether because the experience is something she has experienced previously, or because there was never anything new to experience in the first place. In this way, it can be likened to almost a want to discover at the expense of oneself, rather than a lack of regard for one’s own safety no matter the reason.
Her childlike attitude often spreads to her attitude towards other people - for instance, she will quite often greet a person with a smile and excitement, but that is not necessarily an attitude that will persist if she believes herself to have been wronged. Just as she is happy to see those she considers friends and allies, she is also quick to anger around her enemies. While she may not necessarily be quick to break those alliances, if the person has done something worth pushing them away, Solas will do so in a heartbeat. Of course, just as one would expect, if they bring themselves worthy of forgiveness then she will quite happily forgive them. All in all, she is someone happy to be around people that she likes.
Solas is very, very open about almost everything. She has, as one would put it, very little shame. If she fights, she will quite happily fight in various stages of undress, sometimes preferring it depending on the conditions. She recalls a memory from her dreams where she once fought a Demon in just her underwear. She will answer pretty much every question she is asked honestly, will openly inform someone if she’s attracted to them, is blunt in every response and almost never beats around the bush. This is both a boon and a problem, since there are several instances where she’ll run her mouth off due to a lack of regular or social filter and get herself into more trouble than she ought to.
Gay. Super gay. Ultra mega super gay.
I. History» History:
Solas Foiche was born to a couple, one Irish, one Japanese. They lived in Ireland, were wealthy landowners and eventually moved to her mother’s homeland to find a new life.
Her parents were brutally murdered when she was five, and still only just seeing spirits. They were found with their heads ripped off of their necks, bodies torn to shreds and, written in blood, We will destroy your puny race. One head at a time... Everybody believed that the killer was still out there, but for some reason, had spared this girl, Solas.
Ten years passed, and Solas was in a car, on her way to her next foster family. This was her eighth in a row. For some reason, every foster family she had gone to had been murdered in the same fashion, with the same message above their bodies. But this was to be her last ride.
As they reached a set position, the driver bailed, and hit the detonator on his hand. The vehicle exploded, with Solas dying instantly, her chain of fate instantly severed. The orphanage had believed that she was to blame for the murders, and had ordered her death, hoping that they would stop.
The murders did stop. But Solas was in hiding, a spirit on the run. She stayed in hiding for about a year, before being discovered by the murderous Hollow. If began to play with her, and then attempted to eat her, biting her. As she began to think that all was lost, a flash of light killed the Hollow. She was taken under the wing of a Shinigami who brought her back to Ruknogai, and instantly being placed into the Shinigami Academy.
She excelled in Kidō and Hand-to-Hand combat, and quickly made it into the 8th Division, where she worked under the resident Captain, making sure that everything she did was perfect and to the letter. There are several stories of how she discovered her shikai/bankai, and why they are the way they are, but we will not go directly into them - Solas wouldn’t tell you the true story either way. Instead, we will just know that, after the SHTF was taken from being a division in the Gotei 13 and became the Vanguard, Solas followed her old friend Genpaku.
An altercation with Vohlis caused her body to almost destroy itself, instead causing her to merge with her Zanpakutō spirit permanently--changing her appearance to suit. She spent several years like this, and when her friend Genpaku formally retired from the leadership of the Vanguard, she chose to take that chance to retire as well. For the last few years, she has been laying low, trying to avoid too much attention. When she decides to resurface is anybody’s game, and exactly what she’ll bring back into the world with her is just as unknown.
I. Racial Techniques/Abilities/Skills» Racial Abilities: Magic Absorption:
Solas' body is like a large spiritual sponge. If she gets hit with any energy attack, Solas' body also absorbs the energy that she has been hit with, refreshing her own energy stocks as it does. Solas does have a limit, however. If this limit is reached, Solas can take in a small amount of energy more, before she simply breaks apart.Magical Discharge:
A failsafe, of sorts. With this, Solas can simply discharge all of her energy in a large blast of reiatsu spreading out, retaining simply what she needs to hold a Shinigami form. This tends to not really have much of a use except for when Solas needs to stop herself from overloading.Mahonoken:
Although she is not prominent with Shunko, and has never had the chance, nor the skill to learn it, Solas has seen and heard of the skill, and decided that she would wish to develop something similar. So, through time and practice, Solas developed her own technique, known as a cross between Hakuda and Kidō, Mahonoken. With this technique, Solas is able to take the Kidō knowledge that she has, and combine it with her own skills in Hakuda; thereby manipulating the flow of reiatsu in her body and forcing it out through different parts of her body as the specific Kidō. This is generally done using physical motions within martial arts, such as punches, kicks and the like. It can be especially powerful depending on the spells used; however there lies the risk that Solas may not be able to condition her body for proper use of these attacks, it is extremely taxing at the best of times.
I. Sealed Powers » Zanpakutô Name:
Majutsu-Chūna Biku Tamashī (Fluttering Soul of the Magus) » Zanpakutô Spirit Appearance:
The appearance of this Zanpakutō spirit matches the appearance of the Shinigami, though we are not sure if it's because Solas took on the appearance of her Zanpakutō, or if her Zanpakutō took on her appearance. It is generally understood, however, that the Zanpakutō spirit took on the appearance of the thing Solas wishes to be the most in the world.» Inner World:
Majutsu-Chūna Biku Tamashī's inner world is a simple plain. It's as flat as flat can be, and you can see infinite distances either way. That's not to say it is infinite, it just appears that way, and Solas has never bothered to go that far. Anything she wants in this area can be created with a single thought, and destroyed with the same amount of effort. Solas has, in her spare time, built a castle, grander than the ones that used to exist within the realms of England. But once she has left, it returns to dust.» Zanpakutô Appearance:
» Sealed Zanpakutô Power: Permanent-Release Shikai
I. Shikai» Shikai Release Phrase:
It was 'Don't be afraid', but now that her Zanpakutō is permanent-release, this doesn't really apply.» Shikai Appearance:
See above.» Shikai Abilities:
First, it should be known that Solas' Shikai is a permanent-release type--therefore, there is no sealed form and no need to call a release phrase.
The basic concept behind this Zanpakutō is it's ability to modify Kidō that Solas uses. In fact, the Zanpakutō itself has no use in the matter; it is a catalyst. one that must be there in order to be used. Quite strange, really, but that is how it is. When in battle, her Zanpakutō is hooked onto her back.Magic Strength:
When in Shikai, all of Solas' Kidō are increased by a single level, with no change to the required energy used. i.e: Byakurai is strengthened to 5.Loss of Words:
In Shikai, Solas is not required to speak the chants for Kidō; they will always perform at full strength without them.Silenced Magic:
With this technique, Solas has the chance of performing a Kidō without announcing the name, however this will be as if she didn't chant the spiritual chant, therefore making the Kidō weaker.Ever-Changing Magic:
This is where Solas' power is really shown. The properties of her Zanpakutō allow her to change the attributes of the Kidō that she uses, even down the the color of the energy in the attack. Every little detail can be changed, making the Kidō something completely different to it's original form. Take the example of a Hadō 4: Byakurai. Instead of firing a "bolt of lightning in a direct line", she could fire a "bolt of fire in a curving path at a different target". The Kidō retains it's original strength level, and won't be upgraded or downgraded from this change.Magical Fusion:
The name is really quite the obvious definition for this ability. The Magical Fusion ability allows Solas to take two Kidō, and fuse their attributes together, firing a new Kidō at the average level between the two. Solas must be able to perform both Kidō first. For example: Fusing a Bakudō 62 (Hyapporankan) and a Hadō 4 (Byakurai), would create a Kidō of level 33, which would pin the target into the surroundings, while constantly shocking them with electricity.
I. Bankai» Bankai Appearance:
When she activates her bankai, a large pair of shimmering energy wings immediately burst out of her back, spreading out over twenty feet. These 'wings' shine in multiple colors, and can get even brighter depending on the light level.» Bankai Abilities: Uku/Float:
By using manipulated Reishi currents around her body, Solas is able to give off the appearance of flight, going freely through the air.Boosted Magic Strength:
An upgraded form of the ability from Shikai, Solas is now able to cast any Kidō at a strength of five levels above it's usual, without any increase in used energy.Boosted Silenced Magic:
An upgraded form of the ability from Shikai, Solas is now able to choose to cast Kidō without calling the name, and with no loss in strength. She may still choose to call the name, however this does not change anything.
Ever-Changing Magic and Magical Fusion are retained, with no change.Absorption Array:
A strengthened form of her original Magic Absorption, Solas is now able to absorb all energy-based attacks while taking only 15% damage from them. This is then stored in her wings, which are themselves a small pocket dimension, devoted simply to be used as an energy store. However, any energy that Solas has remaining in here when she leaves bankai is violently discharged.
Rain of Death: This is the true power of Solas' bankai, the ability to literally rain "death" onto her opponents. Taking any Kidō that she knows (including ones modified by her abilities), Solas is able to use the energy stored within the shroud around her body and replicate this Kidō innumerable times within the confines of this small pocket dimension. By doing this, she is effectively able to fire these Kidō out of this place, and down onto an area in front of her, which can be of any size, although the coverage is reduced with the area increased.
