Welcome to Bleach Platinum Hearts RP! This is a Bleach Role Playing Forum set in the year 2416, over 400 years away from the Original Bleach's timeline. It has elements of both canon and custom for a unique mixture of role playing never seen before on Bleach. To get started, please sign up and read our starter guide:
The park was nothing like those of the smaller towns. Theirs were miniature formal gardens for the elderly that had retired there for the quiet life. They had benches, ornamental trees, flowers year round and water fountains in clear lakes that were stocked with Koi carp. But not here. Not in the big town. Here a park meant acres of concrete interspersed with neat grass verges. It had rollerblading tracks, tennis courts, basketball courts, water parks and skate boarder basins. There are vendors with hotdogs and burgers, vendors with curry and rice, vendors with tacos and sour cream. There's always music, sometimes clashing from various sources, none of them official. They don't have colour from roses or asters, but it is more vibrant than any planned garden.
Ritsuko walked around the park and approached the hotdog salesman with a loving smile, as she asked for two hotdogs with mustard and ketchup. The salesman nodded and removed the hotdogs from the racks before placing them on buns and handing them to her, after handed him the money she waved goodbye as he did the same. As she happily ate the delicious delicacy something was on her mind...as she wanted to learn more on the idea of reiatsu and how to hopefully unlocked her true potential as a fighter, but who would be up for the task she wondered?
It seemed utterly hopeless as she was on hold for the last two minutes waiting for an answer from her good friend Kai, since he was relatively strong the first time they fought he seemed perfect for the task.
"Guess he isn't home, well i should just head back an-
Suddenly she felt a cold wind brush against her despite it being relatively hot who could've done this? As cold licked at her face and crept under her clothes, spreading across her skin like the lacy tide on a frigid winter beach. Gently chattering teeth she wrapped her thin coat around her tighter. Looking for the culprit who did this she sensed a man with attire and that his spiritual energy was similar to her own, finally she's found someone who can help in her time of need...so she walked up to the man and moreso asked for assistance.
Hello, i couldn't help but notice that you have similar spiritual energy just like mine. May i ask if i could receive training from you?.
"I'm very interested in learning how to release my spiritual energy and then try to properly control it. Knowing myself i believe it'll be completely outward and out of control causing alot of strain on my body, so hopefully once i understand the basics i can then further go to the first stage of human potential the sacred release state. she explained with eyes of determination and strength didn't matter how hard it would be as long as she can finally contribute against high level threats.
Suddenly the red hair stranger looked behind her and turning around she saw a man who had what appeared to be a tiny fix gripping tightly onto along his shoulders as he demonstrated the immense power he displayed by using one finger to create a small wind gust.
"I can get two masters for the price of one, what more can a girl ask for? This is gonna be the greatest thing since sliced bread!" she thought to herself as he awaited for the tall slender fellow with his miniature fox companion to approach them both.
The young man felt a gentle poke of the vixen's black-tipped tail against his shoulder before he glanced in her direction, seeing her silently point that same tail towards the direction of the red haired man. Just in time to watch him be 'beckoned' too, causing Lex to grumble as he glanced over towards Nina again. 'Be on alert Nina, we may be clones, but we don't want to give them unnecessary information about us if we don't have to.' he warned, slowly taking out something from his jacket to place over his right eye. This looked to be a scanner of sorts, a blue lens being suspended by an ear muffler-looking contraption only a few inches away from his eye to help him look straight through it. 'You idiot, you're the reason he's even asking us to come over there. Just don't overdo it, ok?' she replied back, her eyes never leaving the man's general direction. It seemed that there was a woman who must have just finished talking with him, because she was standing pretty close to the man's positon and she wasn't walking away or anything. 'Granted, that must have been on me with me using my Desert Fox technique. Still, this could be an ambush, so don't let up your guard.' he warned, his eyes flicking towards the vixen to see her reaction. The vixen was already tensing up, knowing that they were well within attack range of any decent fighter who had significant techniques up their own sleeve. 'Already on it.' she answered in a serious tone, her gaze locking onto the man that they were approaching.
By the time Lex was about ten feet away, he casually started pulling out a pair of gray leather gloves from the left pocket of his jacket this time, calmly putting them onto his hands and by now following Nina's example to keep his gaze locked onto the man from this point on. "Yo, beautiful day, isn't it? Though I will admit that it's a bit chilly out here." he called out cheerfully to them both, a friendly tone in his voice as he stopped about five feet in front of the two, the warm smile on his face being an attempt to seem easy to approach in case that the guy got the wrong impression that he was trying muster an attack earlier. That conjuring of spirit energy was what this was about after all, right? He had been in several cities at this point and besides his visit in Eldrazi, he had been pretty much a ghost in plain sight, no one giving him any attention whatsoever. So to come across someone who picked him out of a crowd within a park was nothing less than a reason to be careful that he may have given the wrong impression here.
Lex's Current Equipment
Name: X Scouter Description: A chrome piece of metal that is like an ear muff and links a thin metal wire around one ear and towards the eye, where a thin piece of faint blue lens rests over. Function: This scouter has multiple purposes, from reading data, to projecting data, to displaying videos and images, to even scanning objects. This scouter device can do numerous things, and is still a work in progress as far as Lex is concerned. It can currently scan objects due to laser projection, heat sensors, and sound waves. This can recognize what the object is made out of and take digital images of that object to study for later use.
It can also copy and save data, like text files and other images and videos, as well as project these multiple things on the lens of the scouter. It can play and record things that are happening in real time. The scouter holds 500 terabytes worth of memory and has a database that needs to be filled manually (personally logging information into it like city maps, object descriptions, facial pictures, etc.) Any external database can be connected to the scouter, it just needs to be set up through a Wi-Fi connection before being able to be accessed.
If integrated with Duplex's Perfect Monitor, it can also display a person's actions based off of their muscle movement and accurate computer simulation on the lens. Lastly it has the X Vision scanners on it, allowing Lex to use the different modes of visions with the lens.
Name: Platinum Fox Gloves Description: Leather gloves that have a magical symbol set on the palms of the gloves. These usually come in either light gray or navy blue in color depending on which pair Lex wants to use for the time being. Function: These gloves allow Lex to amplify grey magic, a style of magic that could teleport small items to and from his location. With the amplification however, it allows him to teleport medium, large, and even extremely large items as well. The extremely large items take up a lot of his stamina however, so he tries to keep it small if possible. Origins: After creating grey magic with the Niosha Stone, Lex found it difficult to conjure up the spell during battle, despite its usefulness. Upon more research on the specific codes of magic that the grey magic followed, he found out that if a seal was placed on any item, he could teleport other objects from that very item that had the seal on it. Because the item with the seal had to be touched every time for the activation, it was safe to say that an article of clothing was the safest bet to put the seal, causing the creation of both the Platinum Fox Gloves and the Platinum Fox Boots.
Perseus sized up the man as he walked towards them, still scanning him and paying attention to his body language. The man was clearly preparing in case they were hostile. Once the man stopped getting closer Perseus spoke sternly to him "Cut the bullcrap, I'm not here to start a fight. This girl wants someone to help with controlling her reiatsu, and given your little show earlier you seem to be someone that can help me with this."
Perseus looked around scanning the area to see if there was anywhere that they could train together in the park. This park was huge, so there should be an uncrowded area somewhere. The screen made a dinging sound near a small pond. There wasn't anyone near the pond, the perfect place for some calm training. "Follow me" he said as he started walking to the small koi pond.
The tricking sound of water falling from a small waterfall in the pond filled the surrounding area. "This should be the perfect place. Calm, far from people. The perfect location for focusing."
Ritsuko eyed the man and observed him from head to toe as his anxious little fox friend was clinging onto him like a koala to a tree it just didn't want to let go. The man was relatively well dressed and his slender body wasnt much to compliment on and his small demonstration of power was impressive.
As the man began to gesture his finger for them to follow along with him of course she immediately did so without a second thought, after all they both looked like they knew the basics and advanced methods of controlling reiatsu and why would she complain.
The koi pond now being rushed with a waterfall as the area around them began to fill with the chilling water making her body tingle, but with a look of determination and passion she saw this as the first step in her growth and it was time to finally get started...
It seemed that the man was clearly calling the shots here, at least, on what he expected out of Lex and what he was planning on doing with the girl. The man's approach to this was not to Lex's liking however, as he crossed his arms and gave a quizzical look to the man as he heard him explain that the girl had asked for help controlling her 'reiatsu' and that based on what he saw Lex do, he figured he'd be adequate assistance to the same goal. 'What the hell is reiatsu?' came the vixen's voice in his mind. 'I have no clue, but my guess is that it's parallel to either spiritual energy or is spiritual energy in another language. Nina, check the database and see what that means.' he answered calmly as he heard the man finish his explanation. As the man in front of him was saying his last words before checking his device, Nina was sliding over a pair of royal blue tinted goggles over her eyes and making sure the strap was snug before several lines of text scrolled along the lens as information, successfully answering her question. 'Apparently, Reiatsu is the physical force/pressure that a person’s Reiryoku creates when released and Reiryoku is the amount of energy a being has stored within their body or soul.' she explained to him, slowly sliding the goggles above her eyes to let them rest on her forehead. You mean all this time I've been referring it as spiritual energy when it's been spiritual pressure this whole time?' he asked telepathically. 'Yeah it seems so, we've both been referring it as spiritual energy. When we disperse, we'll have to let both Minerva and Liacaru know the differences as well.' the vixen replied. 'Hehe, well I'll be damned, better we run into that little hiccup now than later I suppose.' he concluded.
By this time the man had found the place he was looking for and was in the process of telling Lex to follow him before the dark skinned man abruptly cut in, quickly putting up a gloved hand with a stern look on his face. "Whoa whoa whoa, before you even continue, I don't even KNOW you or her. Teaching someone control over something so crucial is serious business and I'm not about to just candidly offer assistance to two people I don't even know the names of. You're going to have to either show me who you are, or prove to me you want my help that badly." he instructed. The truth was, even as clones, both Lex and Nina were more than capable of holding their own in a fight. However, this had more to do with him not wanting to empower criminals or people with malicious intent without knowing that he could track them down later if he had to. After all, he had to look out for everyone's safety when it came to stuff like this. 'You're not actually considering helping them, are you? I mean, if the girl's the one that wants help, she would have spoke up by now. She could be a puppet under his control, ready to lure you into a trap if you head over towards that pond.' came Nina's voice again in his mind. 'Yeah I know, I was thinking the same. Still, there's nothing saying that she isn't just shy and had to muster up the courage just to talk to him. I'll start with her first, I have a move in mind that will be perfect for her to master if she's really serious about training and its defense is perfect in case the both of them really are shady.' he replied back to the vixen before he looked straight towards the girl.
"You, what's your name and why do you want to become familiar with reiatsu?" he asked firmly, his arms crossing once again as he kept his ground on the sidewalk. He wasn't going anywhere until they both seemed like people he could trust. All the while, his magical energy was building up around him, a surge of constant wind was subtly flowing near his body, the focus points being several points on his back. 'Lex, you sure you don't want me to siphon the spiritual energy for your moves?' the vixen asked, clearly showing concern in her voice that her owner wasn't trying to conserve his energy this time around. 'Nah nah, I got it from here Nina. Though do be on standby in case I do need some energy for later.' he answered, a bit of his spiritual energy flowing into the wind that was collecting and pressurizing around seven main points on his back by now. He wasn't really expecting her to answer right away, but he didn't expect her to fly off the handle either. It was the other guy's turn, turning to face the red headed man as he looked him over. "And you? What's your name? I at least like to know the names of the people I work with." he asked calmly, trying to show he wasn't trying to be hostile as well. He had to be delicate with this situation as he was sure that it could easily come off that he wasn't trying to be reasonable.
