THE ARRANCAR TEMPLATE
Enter The Arrancar
I. Basic Information» Name:
Kimimaro Kaguya» True Age:
Unknown, estimated to be quite old as he was a Vasto Lorde before having his mask removed» Appearance Age:
17/18» Birth Date:
June 15th» Weight:
2,834 Pounds (1285 kg)» Height:
5'10" (178 cm)» Association:
Years ago Kimimaro was nothing more than a killing machine owned and employed by Ashlei Clixx, Queen of Hueco Mundo. After she left he began wandering Hueco Mundo without direction until eventually becoming Nagato Tengan's right hand man, which is his current status.» Appearance Image:
» Appearance Written:
Kimimaro's hair is a gray-ish bone white in color, comes down past his shoulders in length, and is parted through the middle in an odd zigzag-like pattern. His hair is parted on either side of his face and doesn't have bangs which allows him to retain a comparatively long length without having to worry about it constantly getting in his eyes. There are two separate pony-tails in his hair: one just to the right of his face and the other in the back and to the left, both of which are scarlet in color. The hair in the back is long enough to go past the base of his neck. Kimimaro's hair is rather thick and thus doesn't get wet as quickly or easily as other people's might.
His facial features are rather masculine in nature and, despite his personality, help give him an overall intimidating appearance. With a prominent jawline, unimpressed features, and a mouth usually downward into an unconcerned frown it is difficult to tell what he is thinking by looking at him. One of his most noteworthy physical traits are the two horizontal scarlet dots on his forehead which, when asking Kimimaro about them, apparently have no specific reason and is just a tattoo/marking he received while undergoing experiments by Ashlei Clixx. His eyebrows are thin and gray, like his hair, beneath which are two light green eyes almost always opened widely. Along the bottom and outer edges of his eyes Kimimaro also possesses another scarlet tattoo somewhat resembling makeup meant to be similar to war paint.
Stranger than his facial markings and hairstyle, Kimimaro's apparel is usually considered to be the oddest thing about the man outside of his mannerisms (or lack thereof). On his torso he wears a light lavender, extremely loose fitting shirt that can be zipped up, though it never is. This shirt has long sleeves that reach past his wrists and has a bottom half that reaches farther than his knees with an all white yin and yang symbol on the front meant to symbolize his own inner peace as a being previously incapable of free thought. For his bottoms the Arrancar wears black martial arts pants cut off around mid calf made of a strong and durable material capable of taking a tremendous amount of strain. Around his waist is a thick purple rope tied in an inverted bow, the ends of which point toward the sky behind his back.
Kimimaro's ankles are wrapped in thick, heavy-duty bandaging that continues up almost to his knees. For footwear he wears element-resistant sandals meant to protect his feet even in times of battle and great stress. Underneath all this clothing is a muscled, powerful body wiry in appearance due to not being overly brawny. His white, though slightly tanned, skin is young and flexible belying a multiple-century old individual. Directly below his windpipe is another tattoo, this time black in color, consisting of three curved lines in a circular fashion.
Overall he appears to be a uniquely dressed human without too many strange facets of his appearance, that is until one might consider he is actually an Arrancar. This is because, unlike essentially every single member of his race, Kimimaro has no Hollow hole on his body at all. Where his Hollow hole normally would be is the aforementioned circular tattoo on his chest. Also unique to the Kaguya Arrancar is the absence of any sort of bone remnant on his face or head, this is due to his...particular power which makes his entire body his bone fragment.
This Arrancar's posture is almost robot-like as he always stands straight up and at attention, even when he sits. Despite somehow also seeming relaxed and unimpressed, the strangeness with which this man stands can be quite alarming for those meeting him for the first time. When he walks these facts remain true as his arms don't swing in the slightest and his strides are smooth yet also rigid, following along with the robotic motif of his posture. All of these facts and facets can make him unnerving to observe or talk to due to him seeming to not be a living being and more of a machine.
II. Personality» Personality:
When he was a Hollow he possessed a personality similar to many others of his kind being both destructive and wrathful in nature. This often led to him straight up murdering almost everyone he came into contact with, including other Hollows. This was actually rather strange as usually Hollows seek to consume other Hollows, not destroy them. However Kimimaro only consumed powerful spirits and for everyone else he would just kill them even if it was a waste of time. This led to him being hated among various communities in Hueco Mundo, including the Espada because even as a Hollow he was willing to attack members of the organization simply due to his personality traits.
Previously, Kimimaro lacked any real personality. He was very quiet, not even speaking when being spoken to or even in life or death, high-stress situations.. His brain structure had been changed so many times he didn't retain any of his former personality or likes/dislikes, though sometimes his old self resurfaced in seemingly random spurts. Following Ashlei's experiments on him he followed orders without thought, doing whatever was asked of him no matter how dangerous or brutal. Apparently hid brain had been altered to the point he couldn't go against Ashlei's control no matter what he was asked to do, which made him an extremely straight-forward person: If he was ordered to kill you, he would kill you.
He would skip small-talk in battle and immediately attack as he didn't see a point in speaking to anyone, even enemies. Kimimaro also didn't stop and wait for his opponent to say something in battle, which acted as not only a surprise factor but made him that much more deadly. He prefered to just attack and attack, wanting to finish whatever mission he was given as fast as possible as he thought that is what would make Ashlei happy.
Kimimaro would do whatever Ashlei ordered him to do, without remorse and without regret. He would do what it took to get the job done, no matter what that entailed. He was also willing to die for his master, whether it be fighting an opponent for her or jumping in the way of a dangerous attack or assault aimed for her. While he didn't actually have passion for her he did treat her as a god, serving her no matter what happened to either one of them. Though this usually meant acting as her servant or butler, it didn't matter much to Kimimaro. All that mattered was obeying the commands given to him.
Before Ashlei destroyed his personality he was a quiet fellow, preferring to think rather than talk despite his aggression as a Hollow. However, when he DID speak he said what truly mattered and spoke wisely for his age. As a human he was quite arrogant, referring to others as "garbage that needs cleaning" though he still fought fairly. He was also well known for his charisma, drawing fans and friends alike to himself like moths to a candle. This was due to the aforementioned arrogance which for many came off as great confidence and the ability to lead inferior people.
Due to experiencing both death and revival, which didn't make use of his old body, Kimimaro has seemingly regained some of his old personality since he officially returned to the world. A good portion of the apathy and absolute loyalty placed into his personality artificially has crumbled away, revealing some of his old self. This essentially means he isn't nearly as robotic as he used to be and actually questions existence and his purpose in life instead of just being a mindless drone. Not only that but he is also far more sociable than before, though not in the same way a normal human may be; instead, he is sociable in that he is actually willing and able to interact with other people in general, whether it be for the good or not. He also understands jokes again, something which surprises even him. Also, because he questions his own existence, he has been attempting to forge his own path instead of just being unquestionably loyal to Ashlei or anyone else for that matter, and wants to be able to achieve something before he dies again.
Despite his somewhat return to normalcy as far as his personality is concerned, he does still believe following another person's orders gives him direction and purpose in life. Also worth pointing out is while he does again possess the ability to question life and can see the worth or value in life, he is still completely willing to murder ruthlessly and remorselessly. What this translates to is a strange form of regret he feels after slaughtering people which usually causes him to think about the lives he takes after but doesn't stop him from taking more later on. There is a chance this builds on itself but as for now the regret feeling is more "fire and forget" as Kimimaro quickly moves past it due to his ability to focus on objectives and nothing else.
III. History» History:
As a human he was born into a mid-class family in Tokyo at least five hundred years ago, though the exact date is unknown. His family consisted of a mother, father, older brother, grandparents, an aunt, uncle, and five cousins all living in one medium-sized house. Though not low or bottom class, they barely had enough money to sustain themselves much less advance their economic circumstances. These difficulties would help shape him as a person and help determine the decisions he would make later on in life.
The house his family lived in was by no means huge but was still of a good enough size to house the large family Kimimaro was a part of. It had 5 bedrooms: one for his parents, one for his grandparents, one for his aunt and uncle and their spouses, and two rooms split between the seven chlidren; four in one and three in the other. Kimimaro's room consisted of him, his older brother, and a male cousin. It also had two bathrooms, a kitchen, and a large backyard. The overall quality of the house and its contents weren't exactly great and so it was difficult for the family to deal with tough economic times especially since they all lived in such close quarters.
When Kimimaro was but 6 months old he was diagnosed with a disease that made his bones more dense and grow faster than a normal human's bones. This meant he himself grew faster than normal humans, and his bones couldn't be broken as easy as another persons bone's could. Also, if his bones ever DID break, they would regrow and repair themselves. Nobody knew how he got the disease, but his family considered it to be a blessing from the gods because it essentially made him a "superior human". Despite their economic misfortune, or maybe because of it, this led to the family having great pride in young Kimimaro. This too would help shape his personality as a young man.
When Kimimaro was 6 years old, him and his older, albeit shorter, brother (who was now 10), wandered off their homes land, ending up in a densely wooded forest 3 miles from their houses. After getting lost, they began to worry and wander aimlessly, hoping to find a way out. However, they only found trouble instead of an exit. After 3 hours of pointless wandering, the sun began to go down, eventually disappearing behind the horizon, cloaking the entire forest in darknesses embrace.
After hearing random animal sounds, they began screaming and running. After close to 10 minutes of this they ran straight over a gorge, though Kimimaros brother had grabbed the ledge. Kimimaro, however, had fallen some 20 feet or so onto another ledge jutting out of the rock wall. Kimimaro's older brother, Kabutomaru had pulled himself up over the ledge, onto the ground. However, he decided to save Kimimaro, and climbed down to him, barely fitting on the ledge.
Picking Kimimaro up onto his shoulders, Kabutomaru slowly made his way up the vertical rock wall, eventually making it safely onto the forest floor. Kabutomaru carried his brother through the forest, and somehow made it back to their home after 6 hours. When they made it home, the family rejoiced, but ignored Kabutomarus story once they saw Kimimaros condition. They brought in a highly skilled doctor to assess the situation. After examining Kimimaro, he told his family he hadn't even broken a single bone, and was uninjured, much to the shock of his relatives.
Even though his family was happy about the good news, Kabutomaru was angry. He had potentially saved Kimimaros life, yet he was ignored by his entire family, including Kimimaro. They didn't even care that without Kabutomaru, they would have lost a dear child. Even though he was young, this single event created the life-long grudge Kimimaro would eventually lose his life to.
As they got older, they began to take up martial arts. Kabutomaru was gifted, though he wasn't a prodigy like his younger brother. His younger brother was already winning championships by 11 years old, while he himself was obtaining many second place trophies and ribbons. Though he himself had won countless tournaments, Kimimaro was still ahead of him. Unable to break bones by other humans, and barely being scratched by the strongest of foes, in-sighting love from his fans far and wide, enlarging his shadow that his older brother was buried in.
Kimimaro grew up to be a multi-talented, charismatic individual who was adored and loved by many. Meanwhile, his brother was growing more and more anti-social and depressed. For Kimimaros 17th birthday, him and his older brother went on a trip to the wilderness, as Kimimaro was a lover of nature. They departed as the sun began to go down, making their way through the dark forest they found themselves in. However, things wouldnt go as well as their first wilderness adventure....
As the shadows of midnight ran across the treetops and forest floor, the brothers made their way farther west, rarely stopping to take breaks. By 2 AM, they were beginning to tire from the constant hiking and traveling. Soon, they were beginning to get bleary-eyed and exhausted. They decided to take camp and rest for the night when they made it to the small clearing in the forest. Kimimaro was the first to fall asleep, and the only one to go to sleep. Kabutomaru took out a dagger he had been hiding in his hiking pack. With dagger in hand, Kabutomaru stabbed his brother through his chest, waking him up as well as causing fatal injuries.
Kimimaro died painfully as his brother watched with a smile on his face. As Kimimaro progressed through the stages of becoming a spirit and moving on, his will prevented him from moving on, as he wanted revenge upon his brother. After becoming a Hollow, he killed his brother, and began eating spirits. He eventually evolved into a Gillian, and was able to overpower the other spirits solely because of his incredibly charismatic and powerful personality.
By consuming more and more Gillians and Adjuchas-level, he slowly evolved farther and farther, eventually becoming one of the only 6 Vasto Lorde Hollows in Hueco Mundo at that time. Eventually, he was discovered by Ashlei Clixx because of his power and renown. This was primarily a result of the fact that he assaulted multiple members of Ashlei's Espada and murdered Privaron Espada, multiple Fraccion of numbered members, and even the Octava Espada. Kimimaro agreed to serve Ashlei if she gave him power, which is what she did albeit at the cost of his personality and memories. She warped him beyond his limits, and beyond recognition of a Vasto lorde turning him into something new entirely. At this point he was little more than a mindless killing machine meant to enforce Ashlei's rule across Hueco Mundo.
More recently, Ashlei performed a special surgery on him to turn him into an Arrancar. Due to the fact he didn't possess a true Hollow mask as a Vasto Lorde, a trait unique to him, Ashlei had to use his ability to form and create bone to create a special mask made of his own power. After this she used all her strength to forcefully tear this mask off his face which caused an incredible transformation to occur. Unlike any witnessed before by those around him, Kimimaro's evolution into an Arrancar was tremendous in both size and scope of the energy released during the event. After a few tests involving killing and mutilating other Arrancar and Shinigami alike in order to determine if any significant personality changes occurred from the transformation, Kimimaro began to serve lady Ashlei as he'd done before except now with greater intelligence and ability to hold information. He resided in Los Noches where experiments were still performed on him to make him a deadlier killing machine.
After a few years Ashlei Clixx left, leaving Kimimaro Kaguya to his own devices. This essentially meant he had no direction and no objectives which led to him just wandering around Hueco Mundo not knowing where to go. Though he didn't actively seek to get into conflicts, when people did approach him if they did so with aggression in mind his response was a quick and immediate end to any such situations. Hearing word of an individual who wiped out almost everyone he came across, similar to when he was a Hollow various communities opted to either attempt group assaults to kill him (all of which clearly failed) or just steered clear of him in general.
This went on for almost two and a half years until finally he met someone he couldn't defeat: Nagato Tengan. The Arrancar Sage approached Kimimaro with the goal in mind of testing his powers and capabilities in order to determine whether or not he was worth recruiting. Nagato quickly surmised the Kaguya's strength was most certainly great enough to warrant an attempted enlistment. However the experiments and alterations done to Kimimaro over the years meant his only response was "If Ashlei doesn't order it, it shall not be done". This didn't anger his opponent, it merely gave him an idea of what he needed to do to override what was little more than a recoding of the Arrancar's faculties and thoughts. This solution was simple: Kill Kimimaro Kaguya. So he did.
After a somewhat strenuous battle Nagato arose as the victor, killing and destroying Kimimaro in the process. However part of him remained, a strong part of his soul that prevented him from returning to the soul cycle keeping him anchored to the world. This fragment was all Nagato needed to build a brand a brand new body with the potential of surpassing the last. By forcing this spiritual fragment into the new body, a body and mind free from the torturous experimentation done to him by his previous master, Kimimaro was born anew. While Nagato wasn't able to completely reverse everything done to him as his previous thoughts and experiences had been completely deleted by Ashlei, he was in fact able to return his free will and thus create a Kimimaro capable of his own thoughts. Knowing Nagato's strength, the Arrancar decided it would be best to follow him at least until he would decide otherwise.

THE ARRANCAR CONTINUED
Enter The Powers
IV. Equipment» Equipment:
V. Racial Techniques/Abilities/Skills» Skills, Traits and Racial Abilities: Vast Spiritual Pressure:
Kimimaro passively radiates a tremendous amount of spiritual pressure, or Reiatsu. Being of the highest order of Arrancar having evolved all the way to Vasto Lorde before having his "mask" removed, this individual's Reiatsu is capable of causing damage to both living beings and the terrain. It's been theorized if ten Vasto Lorde-level Arrancar existed, all of Soul Society would be doomed. His pressure has been described as being akin to a "celestial body dropping on your head" by other Hollows in Hueco Mundo. His power is far above even Gotei Thirteen captains and dwarfs almost everyone he comes across. Without restricting his output of Reiatsu Hollows and Arrancar alike in Hueco Mundo would be flattened like pancakes if he ever neared them. Even across many miles inexperienced sensors pick up his Reiatsu and being even that far away inspires fear in the most headstrong of fighters. Extreme Durability:
To say Kimimaro is difficult to damage would not just be an understatement, it would be a joke. Underneath his Hierro this Arrancar's actual skin is extraordinarily difficult to cut or otherwise damage, and in general he is rather durable against blunt force trauma as well to the point of usually causing more damage to attackers than they do to him. In his fight against Nagato Tengan, the strongest Arrancar alive, Kimimaro brushed off multiple Cero attacks without taking any damage whatsoever. This Arrancar has actually been known to delay releasing into his Ressureccion in response to his opponents' own releases due to being able to take attacks from ascended states without taking any or noticeable damage, shrugging off both Shikai and Bankai-level attacks from weaker and equivalent foes depending on the force behind them. This high level of durability has caused Kimimaro to become known for face-tanking attacks that would bring lesser beings to their knees, which actually goes a long way in saving him energy as it means he doesn't need to use equivalent attacks to negate them.Expert Swordman:
The Kaguya Arrancar is very skilled in swordsmanship as even as a human he was a prodigy in this specific type of martial art. He does not waste movements, striking at the exact and perfect time which shows his masterful swordsmanship. Ashlei Clixx increased his reaction time, and overall reflexes with her experiments, making him a much more potent swordsman. He can easily adapt to using any sized blades, varying from blades as long as his leg, to blades shorter than his arm. Like any master blade wielder, Kimimaro stays aggressive in combat using his weapon and body to strike at his foes relentlessly. This translates into a fearsome combatant with any type of blade. Kimimaro is capable of participating in close quarters combat against multiple foes wielding only a single bone sword and not be hit a single time, almost making his durability pointless, thanks to his skill. Expert Whip User:
Kimimaro is also very skilled in using whips, being able to manipulate them to an extreme extent. Being capable of wrapping this type of weapon around his targets, whether they be individuals or objects, allows him to grab them from afar and either pull them toward him or send them flying. Kimimaro can quite easily break the sound barrier by snapping one of these like bullwhips, allowing him to cause severe damage to whatever he hits. By pulling his spine out using his unique ability Kimimaro can use it as a whip, but can easily adapt to other types as well. He can also utilize a whip's length by being able to even strike with the very tip of it which can cause burns and lacerations to targets.Extremely High Pain Threshold:
Due to his mechanical-like mind and his destroyed nerves, as well as his extremely dense bones and Hierro, he has an extremely high pain threshold. This means it takes a LOT of damage for him to even start feeling pain, and it is almost impossible to knock him unconscious from pain alone. He also tends to just ignore any pain he does feel, as he fights no matter how severe the damage he has already accumulated. This is mostly due to the experiments Ashlei did on him, which he has not completely recovered from or been purified of. The main problem with this is he would keep fighting when he is highly damaged, and end up killing himself as he wouldn't pay attention to his wounds. However if he were ever captured by his enemies, torture would be essentially useless against him.Bala
(虚弾 (バラ), bara; Spanish for "Bullet," Japanese for "Hollow Bullet"): Bala is an Arrancar's alternative to Cero. The technique hardens the user's Spiritual Pressure and fires it like a bullet. Although it is weaker than a normal Cero, it moves about twenty times faster and can be fired at a much higher rate at. The lower power output but significantly greater charge and movement speed make this technique extremely effective at attacking targets moving too quickly to hit square on with a regular old Cero. Despite the damage trade off, Kimimaro's Bala is still capable of causing tremendous pinpoint damage to his targets to the point of being able to tear through powerful shields and barriers. His white Bala are also far quicker than the average Arrancar's, being able to outpace even speed specialists he comes across. Using this ability to whittle down powerful foes he has difficulty approaching, such as Kido users, is the primary way Kimimaro uses it.Cero
(虚閃 (セロ), sero; Spanish for "Zero," Japanese for "Hollow Flash"): are high-powered energy blasts that can be fired from various body parts, such as mouth, tongue, hand or fingers. Only Gillians, Adjuchas, Arrancar, and the Vizard are usually capable of using this technique, and it appears that stronger entities can use it more efficiently. There are various advanced and custom forms of this ability users can utilize as well. Kimimaro's Cero is a grayish white like his Bala, though it is actually a bit brighter in hue. As expected from someone like himself his Cero is a highly powerful ability capable of causing widespread destruction across both individuals and terrain. Even if the sheer force of his Cero was disregarded the speed at which he can charge and launch them is enough to intimidate many individuals the Arrancar comes across. Along with this he is able to cast this ability in rather quick succession and can control the size of the blast released so as to either concentrate the firepower into a more condensed size or make it larger to destroy as much as possible. Being hit directly by one of these is sure to leave even quite powerful foe's feeling shaken.Gran Rey Cero
(王虚の閃光 (グラン・レイ・セロ), guran rei sero; Spanish for "Grand King Zero", Japanese for "Royal Hollow Flash") is a Cero that only Espada are capable of using. It is performed by mixing an Espada's own blood with the Cero. The result is a Cero with a much greater attack power and speed as well as a change of color unique to the Espada. It is also many times more powerful than a normal Cero, capable of disturbing the fabric of space and also seems to spin like a razor upon release as it compresses and decompresses due to the sheer speed and raw power. It is a drastically potent Cero, used only by the Espada themselves. As an ex-Espada, as well as a powerful Arrancar, Kimimaro has access to this tremendous technique, and is able to cause a frightening amount of destruction with just a single use of this technique. Kimimaro has been known to level entire towns with a Gran Rey Cero and is forbidden to use it on Los Viejo due to this very fact. Most barriers and shields shatter upon being hit by his Gran Rey including high level Bakudo spells. Kimimaro's Gran Rey Cero is an opaque white.Cero Oscuras
(黒虚閃 (セロ・オスキュラス), sero osukyurasu; Spanish for "Dark Zero," Japanese for "Black Hollow Flash") or more grammatically correct Cero Oscuro, is a black Cero used by only the mightiest and highest ranked Arrancar. The superior Cero Oscuras is far greater than even the Gran Rey Cero. Kimimaro's Oscuras is pitch black which a bit of white on the edges of it, and is so powerful it can eliminate dozens of strong enemies in a single blast. To call this technique frightening would be an understatement as the raw destructive force it produces is comparable to very few other attacks and is dangerous enough to make dodging it completely almost entirely necessary just to survive. Kimimaro has yet to meet a barrier, shield, or Kido spell that wouldn't shatter or vaporize upon being hit, a testament to the danger this ability poses to whoever ends up in his crosshairs. Garganta
(黒腔 (ガルガンタ), garuganta; Spanish for "Throat," Japanese for "Black Cavity") is how Arrancar and Menos-class Hollows move to and from Hueco Mundo. It literally tears open the dimensional fabric separating the worlds, revealing a tunnel of whirling, torrential energy that must be focused and solidified to create a discernible pathway. Kimimaro uses this ability to travel from Los Viejo to Hueco Mundo's land and vice versa as well as to go between various worlds, the primary ones being Hueco Mundo and Earth. Grandmaster Hierro
(鋼皮 (イエロ), iero; Spanish for "Iron," Japanese for "Steel Skin") refers to the hardened skin of the Arrancar, which is a result of their compressed spiritual power. While their skin is strong enough to block even released Zanpakutō bare-handed, it is by no means impenetrable. Stronger Arrancar generally have proportionally stronger skin than usual. Kimimaro's main attribute is his Hierro, as it is considered to be one of the strongest in existence. In extended combat almost everyone forced to do battle with Kimimaro would quickly learn the single most dangerous attribute the Arrancar possesses is the mightiness of his Steel Skin. Due to his extraordinary amount of power his Hierro is already at a high level, but thanks to his specialization in this ability it far surpasses the Hierro of every living Arrancar besides one. Attempting to break through this armor is like trying to shatter diamond with an iron pickaxe. In most cases the one attempting to injure Kimimaro is actually more likely to hurt their self rather than him to the point of even causing broken bones in the attacker's appendage used to strike him. Though certainly possible to cut or damage Kimimaro through his Hierro, even for those more powerful in general than him this feat would prove to be tremendously difficult.
- Kokujin busō Hierro ((黒人武装師) Japanese for "Black Armament Steel Skin"): Kimimaro's Hierro has progressed in both its own strength and the skill with which he manipulates it to the point of bringing rise to a new form of it entirely. This new form of Hierro is unique and exclusive to Kimimaro alone and it is not yet clear if it is possible to teach it to other individuals. The minimum requirement for being able to use this ability is Master in Durability and Grandmaster in Hierro, testament to just how incredibly difficult it is to even obtain much less use for extended periods of time. However due to possessing this ability for quite some time Kimimaro is able to fully take advantage of its power which includes being able to transfer it to bones he has already pulled out of his body. How this ability works is by hardening his Reiatsu and Hierro to a level not normally achievable he can coat his skin in what appears to be a black metal-like substance. This armor is capable of rendering the majority of attacks against Kimimaro entirely moot and can even cause damage to spiritual weapons like Zanpakuto if he is struck by one with Kokujin busō active. This ability also increases the user's ability to fight against weapon and magic users as there is little worry of being damaged by either while it is active. The secondary effect of Kokujin busō Hierro is the sonic boom-like shockwave sent out when it is either struck or when it clashes with solid objects which is able to cause noticeable damage to terrain and weak foes. Finally the tertiary effect of this ability is when it is used on his fists, legs, or bones these things are able to hit and damage objects and individuals that, through their own abilities, are invulnerable to physical attacks. The magnitude of this trait is such that even abilities that are supposed to nullify or be immune to attempts to cause physical damage are rendered moot. Due to the might of this ability it is difficult to maintain for extended periods at a time, such as two or more posting rounds straight, and is similarly difficult to cover the user's entire body in it at all. Using this ability for multiple posting rounds straight causes a cooldown period of 2 posting rounds afterward.
[/b](探査回路 (ペスキサ), pesukisa; Spanish for "Inquiry," Japanese for "Probe Circuit") is the Arrancar equivalent of the Shinigami ability to sense Spiritual Pressure. It functions very similarly to sonar. Kimimaro can sense beings from quite far away, and is able to sense even minuscule amounts of Spiritual Power.
- Shindō Pesquisa ((振動探査回路) Japanese for "Vibration Probe Circuit"): While regular Pesquisa is used primarily to sense and gauge the general power of other individuals, this unique variant is capable of much more. First off how it works: By feeling spiritual vibrations Kimimaro is able to sense any and all fluctuations in both his and others' energies and Reiatsu allowing him to keep track of and stop potential attempts at disrupting his own spiritual capabilities and notice when opponents may be trying something tricky. Shindō Pesquisa is accurate to almost incalculably low margins and is nigh impossible to fool or avoid, making it difficult to hide things from Kimimaro in and out of battle. However the most important thing to note is this ability can only be used through his bones, meaning either his own body or a bone he produces must make contact with whatever he is attempting to sense for it to work. While this can be done at range by, for example, shooting a bone at an energy attack a distance away from, if he were to somehow miss then he would not be able to use this technique.
(響転 (ソニード), sonīdo; Spanish for "Sound," Japanese for "Sound Ceremony"): The Arrancar equivalent of the Shinigami Flash Steps and the Quincy Hirenkyaku; it allows the user to travel at incredibly high speeds for short distances. Use of Sonído is punctuated by a brief static sound, in contrast to the "swish" sound caused by Flash Steps. However, for particularly skilled users this sound doesn't occur at all and is replaced by utter silence. Kimimaro happens to be someone with this capability and as such, along with other reasons, is extraordinarily difficult to keep track of while he is moving around using Sonido. Able to cross vast distances in an instant, if Kimimaro ever needs to travel between cities or countries and isn't able or doesn't want to use Garganta this is easily the next best mode of transport for the Arrancar. More fearsome, however, is just how frighteningly quick he can move in combat using this technique. Even ignoring the base speed he is capable of, Kimimaro's skill in Sonido allows him to dodge almost all projectiles with little issue as well as take opponents by surprise.

N/A» Zanpakutô Appearance:
Kimimaros Zanpakutō is actually all the bones in and out of his body he can manipulate. However, the main form sword-type weapon he uses is arm-sword, which is made of bone, and is about 60 centimeters long, the length of a long Wakizashi. The "handle" isn't so much a handle as it is the area where the bone would meet his shoulder. Its tip is extremely sharp, and its edges are cut sharp as well. The primarily bone sword Kimimaro uses is bone white, which is the same color as all of his bones and even his spiritual energy and pressure. Because his Zanpakutō is all-encompassing as far as use goes, it isn't restrained by the basic limits of normal Zanpakutō, and as such is highly versatile when used appropriately.» Unique Power: Shikotsumyaku
(屍骨脈, Literally meaning: Dead Bone Pulse): The main capabilities of Shikotsumyaku are allowing the user to manipulate the speed of their bones' growth as well as the location of calcium deposits, giving them the ability to change and alter their entire skeletal structure. This allows Kimimaro to grow his bones out of his body and actually pull them out of his limbs, extremities, etc. What this means is Kimimaro can actually grow and create weapons and objects made out of his own bones. He can even fire pieces of bone as long-ranged projectiles, primarily out of his finger tips. Any bone that they remove from the body immediately regenerates, as does the skin that is damaged when the bones are removed (this is the only aspect of regeneration he is capable of). If an enemy were to somehow cause so much damage to Kimimaro they break or shatter his bones he has very little difficulty rebuilding and reforming them inside his body. He can increase the density of the created bones, making them much stronger than steel. This not only makes the created weapons very powerful, but also makes his body virtually indestructible; the bones can withstand even a Reitsu-infused blade, which is usually enough to cut through anything and can help make him almost impervious to blunt force trauma. It should also be noted the sharpness of the bones he can grow is on an extremely high level, being able to cut and stab through most materials with little trouble.
From what the only known user of this ability, Kimimaro, has shown, most of the techniques are named after flowers. Most of them are also close quarters combat-based sword dances, which are used for close combat and defense. However as Kimimaro demonstrated growing tremendous amounts and volumes of bone is quite easy for him, being able to do so quite quickly as well. He has displayed the ability to grow hundreds of bones in rapid succession. After becoming an Arrancar, he developed the ability to extend and grow a bone AFTER shooting it or throwing it or even dropping it. He does this by channeling Reitsu through the bone, and then using his bone growth from far away either by sending said Reiatsu/energy through the air or by storing it in the bone beforehand and then telepathically causing the growth to occur at range. Kimimaro's level of bone growth and control is so unfathomably incredible he has an extremely durable layer of bone directly underneath his skin across his entire body; yes, every square inch of his body is reinforced by his harder-than-steel bone which acts as a second layer of skin, thus reinforcing his already incredible durability and Hierro.
What prevents this ability from being truly unstoppable is the fact that he is limited to creating physical objects. Shikotsumyaku has no large or area-of-effect capability, forcing Kimimaro to rely on Cero techniques to deal with large amounts of enemies or extremely large targets simultaneously and is primarily useful in close quarters combat. Individuals capable of keeping Kimimaro away are able to render this ability almost completely irrelevant. Not only that, but for those actually capable of damaging or breaking the bones he produces it is quite difficult for Kimimaro fight them as he has very few answers for those types of fighters.
- Balas Dedo: Kimimaro can force small, drill-like bones through his finger tips and shoot them at enemies. He can send a maximum of 10 at once, as he only has 10 fingers on his hands. The bones move through the air extremely quickly, and have a large amount of impact and penetration force as they constantly spin like drills. He can continuously shoot these projectiles as he can infinitely regenerate bones. These bone drills are powerful enough to shatter many defenses and are also next to impossible to break, which further increases their destructive force. A single bone hitting the ground is enough to create a large crater in the ground and sent dirt flying in every direction. Even metal objects aren't usually capable of defending from these projectiles. For most victims of this technique the bones impact and burrow far into their bodies, and in many cases actually go straight through them. Despite travelling at remarkably high speeds, due to the very small size of these projectiles they can be quite difficult to actually hit quick-moving targets with. Also being limited to only ten at a time can make it difficult to deal with many foes or a fast range-focused individual especially given Kimimaro's reliance on this technique to deal with ranged foes in general.
- Dance of the Thorn Willow: This is a technique that is shown to be highly effective against multiple foes attacking Kimimaro simultaneously and gives him a simple way to deal with crowds of enemies without having to resort to destructive abilities like a Cero. To start Kimimaro must grow bones out of various points on his body, primarily his palms and joints like his elbows, shoulders, and knees. These bones are quite long, usually a foot or more, and end in extremely sharp points. If necessary he can create more protruding bones depending on the situation at hand. Once all the bones have been made, Kimimaro primarily focuses on parrying and countering any blows his enemies may attempt to land on him and as such the Dance of the Thorn Willow is extremely fluid and dynamic in how it's used. By utilizing agile footwork and acrobatic movements like spins and sweeps Kimimaro is able to consistently react and act against his opponents while using this Dance. However perhaps the most dangerous part of this technique is the fact that he can rapidly increase or decrease the length of each protruding bone making it more difficult than expected to not be caught by surprise when fighting against it.
- Dance of the Rapid Camellia: Unlike Thorn Willow, this Dance utilizes a single bone instead of many. This usually consists of growing and removing bone resembling the humerus from his shoulder which, fused with a more slender pointed bone, is about as long as his arm. This bone doesn't have very sharp edges and as such is not good for slashing, at least as far as cutting is concerned, but has an extremely sharp tip capable of piercing most defenses and barriers Kimimaro comes across. However this alone does not constitute an entire Dance. While using this Dance Kimimaro postures aggressively and rapidly thrusts the sharp bone at his target(s), stabbing chaotically and continuously to ensure they have no reprieve from the onslaught. This functions to force openings in his opponent's stance or form due to the irregular and difficult motions occurring in the Dance. Coupled with the sheer speed at which these thrusts and lunges occur, it is rather difficult for victims to maneuver themselves to not be gored by this fierce series of attacks which usually allows Kimimaro to end fights in a single blow once the opening has been taken advantage of.
(Antebrazo Cero, meaning Forearm Cero): This is the signature Cero for the Arrancar known as Kimimaro Kaguya, and as such can only be used by himself. This technique mixes both a powerful energy attack and a powerful physical attack. By creating any type of Cero (Gran Rey and Oscuras included) he can insert his Radius bone into the charging Cero in just a second or two. The bone immediately regenerates in Kimimaros body, so he can do this any time. After the Radius is inserted into the Cero, the Cero itself is fired at whatever Kimimaro desires. When the Cero hits a person/object/location, the bone extrudes sharp razor-like blades. The blades then fire off in every direction as shrapnel causing widespread physical damage which helps to amplify the overall capability of Kimimaro's Cero because of how well it compliments the energy-based makeup of the regular attack.
VII. Ressurección» Ressureccion Name:
Alerce Danza (Larch Dance)» Ressureccion Release Phrase:
"Bloom, Alerce Danza"» Release Actions:
After saying the phrase a tremendous amount of whitish-tan energy begins to swirl around Kimimaro, creating a vortex of sorts that encapsulates his entire body ant not much else. While in this vortex bones begin to grow and extend from every major bone in his body and push out through his skin. This includes his ribs, and many other parts of his body. After a few seconds the energy dissipates and his new form is revealed.» Ressureccion Appearance:
There are very few basic changes between Kimimaros Ressureccion and his Sealed state. The main one being all of the bones now sticking out of his body. His bones have now grown out of and extended from his normal bones, and have pushed straight through his skin. The primary new bones are located on his rib cage, which is now completely forced through his chest, and also the massive bones as thick and long as his arms, sticking out of his back. He also has many bones sticking out from each arm, as well as sharp extensions of his collar bone. These bones are extremely sharp, able to tear apart a persons body quite easily. He also gains a katana-like bone sword with other bones sticking out of the length of the blade, giving it an almost serrated edge.» Ressureccion Abilities: Constant Protrusion:
While in his Ressureccion, the bones protruding from his body upon transforming cannot be withdrawn or removed from his body (unless forced by an enemy). This is an important distinction to make as it can be quite difficult to maneuver compared to when his power is still sealed, causing his entire battle style to shift from elegance to more aggression and chaos. In combat this translates to him face-tanking a lot more attacks against him instead of deftly dodging and counterattacking, a significant difference in his Ressureccion. However, the bones aren't just for show: The ones created by his Ressureccion transformation are all significantly more durable and sharper than ones he can normally create, making it that much easier for him to tear apart his enemies in close quarters combat. These bones also regenerate significantly faster than standard, being able to recover from damage almost instantly at the cost of draining Kimimaro of an appropriate amount of energy. Osteoresistances:
The primary traits of Kimimaro's bones using his Shikotsumyaku technique are durability and sharpness. However, by using his Ressureccion these bones gain a significant amount of new characteristics that make them that much more potent in both defense and offense. These traits vary widely and fill multiple niches required to combat many different kinds of opponents. The changes to his bones are listed below:
Tierra del Tsunami (Earth Tsunami):
- Cold and Freezing Resistance: The first element-based resistance his bones gain in Ressureccion involves low temperatures. First and foremost a rather peculiar thing to note is how difficult it is for ice to form on his bones. Even if there is water on them and the temperature drops below freezing, ice will refuse to form. An inch away? Sure. Directly on or making contact with the bones? Nope. To form ice the temperature must be significantly lower than freezing. Not only this but the durability of his bones are not affected by being frozen, which makes the strategy of freezing and then breaking them irrelevant.
- Heat and Fire Resistance: While usually a human's bones take about two to three hours burning at about sixteen hundred degrees Fahrenheit to become ash, Kimimaro's bones are significantly more resistant to heat to the point of almost (but not quite) being immune. While he himself can be burned more easily, the bones are capable of taking temperatures and flames that would usually be able to destroy almost anything they come across with little difficulty. Six thousand Kelvin would barely darken the bones Kimimaro produces, which is especially useful against individuals like fire element users whom he usually has difficult fighting due to his lack of area-of-effect attacks.
- Poor Conductor: Unlike many minerals, the makeup of Kimimaro's bones in Ressureccion changes in such a way that electricity cannot travel well through them at all. What this means is electric attacks in general are less effective than normal against Kimimaro, but he can also use his bones to safely deal with individuals who could transfer electricity through weapons during close quarters combat. Also an interesting way to take advantage of this is if he had some sort of lightning rod he could cover one end in bone and thus make it safe to handle without worry of being shocked.
- Energy Resistance: In Ressureccion his bones become resistant to energy-based attacks of all kinds, without exceptions. What this essentially translates to is an all-around durability buff due to the advanced transformation Kimimaro undergoes to reach this point. This is most noticeable in his ability to use weapons made of bones to combat individuals with energy-based weapons and attacks. However it also allows Kimimaro to face-tank more energy abilities and spells with significantly less trouble than in his sealed state, giving him more ways to fight ranged fighters and mages. In his battle against Nagato Tengan, these bones were capable of shrugging off even the Sage Arrancar's high powered energy attacks such as Gran Rey Cero.
- General Durability Boost: As to be expected his bones become stronger, sturdier, and tougher overall. This equates to essentially a change similar to a single increase in skill rank. Physical attacks of all kinds become even less effective against Kimimaro's bones. For those attempting to break or destroy any of his bones it would feel as if they had their own Hierro, though in reality that's just the truly indomitable defense they possess. In their fight Nagato Tengan made the observation avoiding his bones entirely and trying to pierce his skin would probably be the best plan of attack solely due to the seemingly indestructible durability they acquire in his Ressureccion.
- Part 1: This multi-step technique is extremely powerful, and by far Kimimaro's strongest technique while in his Ressureccion form. However it is also his slowest technique, so it should be used sparingly and only in situations where he won't immediately be interrupted or attacked by enemies. Step one is the activation sequence, so to speak. It starts with Kimimaro growing large blades out of his wrists that extend along his hands and act like blades. After these are grown out of his wrists he slams them into the ground, pushing the bones all the way into the ground where they can no longer be seen.
- Part 2: Now onto the main attack. After the bones are thrust into the ground they begin to grow at an extremely fast pace and branch out under the surface of the earth below. After a few seconds allowing for maximum bone growth, Kimimaro lifts his hands, pulling some ground up around the entry point as well. This then starts the main attack. Gigantic pillars and spikes made of bone shoot out of the ground in the form of a massive tidal wave of bone and earth. These bones are easily capable of slaughtering and goring most people Kimimaro comes across if hit directly. The wave is enormous with the blades and chunks of rock and dirt reaching heights of well over one hundred meters high, taller than even the Great Pyramid of Giza and it continues for about 1.5 miles. It also travels quite quickly, being able to catch his opponents by surprise from the sheer speed of this attack as it rolls over entire battlefields in a matter of seconds. Its lack of reach against aerial opponents is its main downfall, however because it reaches up so high and occurs so quickly, unless the opponent happens to be very high in the sky from the get go it is unlikely they'd be able to dodge. Unfortunately due to the wind-up Kimimaro himself is left quite vulnerable while performing this technique.
VIII. Segunda Etapa» Segunda Etapa Name:
Liberación la Tierra Sello » Segunda Etapa Release Phrase:
"Gore, Liberación la Tierra Sello"» Release Actions:
After saying the release phrase a frightening amount of gray and brown energy covers his entire body and forms a torrential sphere similar to when he releases his Ressureccion. However just before this occurs bones cover and envelop him entirely. Inside the swirling energy tremendous transformations happen until eventually all the energy dissipates and his new form is revealed.» Segunda Etapa Appearance:
Compared to his regular or Ressureccion appearance Kimimaro looks drastically different in this form. In his Segunda Etapa his skin is dark brown and has hundreds of small black dots that cover his body. His most notable features are the massive bones sticking out of his back, and his tail. His tail is longer than his actual body and is very thick, like a tree trunk. It also has miniature spines made of bone reminiscent of dinosaurs that run along the top of his tail until a few inches short of its end. His eyes are all black, except for his yellow iris', including his pupils and sclera which gives him a demonic look. He has black markings around his eyes which not only work as light-blockers, but also make his face seem even more demonic then it already does.
Other more minute changes occur as well. One example of this is his hair which is now a much darker gray than usual and slightly longer in length. Another somewhat noticeable different is his teeth which are now sharper and more like that of a predatory animal. Also worth noting are his toenails and fingernails which are longer and are like razor-sharp talons capable of causing damage to enemies. All of these changes combined make him seem not only more Hollow-like, but more monstrous in appearance.» Segunda Etapa Abilities: Extreme Reiatsu:
As a Vasto lorde level Arrancar he already has an incredible amount of spiritual power, however in this form it becomes even more monstrous.. In his Segunda Etapa his Reiatsu is raised to unimaginable levels, easily dwarfing almost everyone he comes across even when they're at maximum power output. His Reitsu is frightening and can even make it seem as though you are being drowned by it alone. Anything and anyone captain level or below is extremely likely to lose the ability to walk, breathe, or move in general and would most likely be forced to black out from the sheer amount of pressure pushing down upon them, and as such it is dangerous for opponents not prepared and able to fight him to be near him. The sheer output of Reiatsu in this form can be felt across vast distances of land and would cause sensors of all kind to go haywire even miles away from Kimimaro.Magnificent Durability:
Kimimaro gains yet another boost to his defense and durability in his Segunda Etapa form. His skin (not Hierro itself) becomes harder than solid rock or steel, adding to his Hierro and bone layers under his skin. Also, his bone can become multiple times more dense and more durable than it ever could in his previous states. He is known as the "Unbreakable Bone" while in this form due simply to the fact that most would have trouble laying even a scratch on him. Kimimaro's Hierro is enhanced by the Bankai-dwarfing amount of power he gains with the activation of this form, and his spiritual pressure brings it to the point of being nigh-unbreakable, thus the title. His skin itself is enhanced as well, hence its new color, and without considering his other defenses, it next to impossible to cut or tear. His bones themselves, including the extra ones he grows, become so durable, they are very near indestructible to even the most powerful of assaults upon them, making him both more capable in offense as well as defense. While not invulnerable to damage, Kimimaro's durability and defense are the single most noteworthy factors to consider when fighting him and this goes double for his Segunda Etapa. Attacks from captain level fighters at this point do not damage him in this form without significant outside help.Physical Changes:
There are some significant changes that occur to Kimimaro's physical stats while in his Segunda Etapa form. First and foremost due to his weight increasing to over one hundred and seventy thousand imperial tons, his General Speed stat drops two entire ranks. This makes staying away from Kimimaro much easier to the point where it feels like battling a spiky boulder for his peers, so he clearly won't be winning any foot races any time soon. However his Sonido remains unchanged so he's still able to take advantage of his skill in that movement technique. The drastic speed drop is counterbalanced by an increase in both his General Strength and Durability stats by an equivalent to a full single rank. What this translates to in actual combat is quicker opponents have an easier time dodging attacks from Kimimaro, but should one actually land it would be able to cause significantly more damage than what he is normally capable of.Dance of the Clematis: Vine:
Using his bone growth and control, Kimimaro can modify and pull out his own spinal column to use as a flexible chainstaff like weapon while simultaneously regrowing a new spine to replace the removed one instantly. To do this, he deconnects the spine very high up and then forces it out of his body at the base of his neck. He then grabs the "handle" and pulls his entire spine out, which is instantly regrown as he does so, allowing him to move and fight despite having having just taken out his own spinal column. The protrusions on the vertebra are modified to make them stronger and sharper to the point of being able to eviscerate an opponent should it be used to capture or wrap around them. It can then be used to wrap around the opponent, from which Kimimaro will use Dance of the Clematis: Flower as a finishing attack. Because it is a chain staff and because Kimimaro has such great control over the weapon, its movements are extremely difficult to predict, thus making it easier for him to capture and opponent with it. It should also be noted that it can be used like a standard whip or staff, giving Kimimaro quite a bit of flexibility as far as combat goes. The spine can extend up to twenty meters in length and the "blades" running along the edges can cause severe damage to almost whatever they hit making it dangerous to even be touched by this weapon.
Dance of the Clematis: Flower:
Kimimaro's entire forearm becomes encased in a giant spiral-shaped drill made of bone which has a tip sharper than any other bone the Arrancar can produce in any form. The bone is strengthened (through extreme compression and its plaited spiral shape) to become the hardest type of bone Kimimaro's body can create, meaning anything and everything else he had done prior to this is brittle compared to the drill's durability and power. The bone resembles a flower, hence the name. This is considered to be the ultimate piercing technique, as its destructive force is absolutely insane allowing Kimimaro to break defenses that shouldn't normally be able to be broken, drill straight through extremely dense objects, and pierce straight through the most durable of opponents. This is actually due to a combination of the power of the weapon and a unique characteristic that allows the drill to ignore defense-enhancing abilities and traits of its victims.
Due to the durability of this weapon, it can also act as a shield to block and knock away attacks from opponents that might otherwise injure Kimimaro. It should also be noted that when this weapon moves through the air, a massive vortex is created behind the drill, and when his spiritual pressure is concentrated at its tip, it creates the same space-altering effects of a Gran Rey Cero, though on a much greater level allowing Kimimaro to pierce even reality-based and special barriers and defenses, truly making this the ultimate piercing weapon. During his fight with Nagato Tengan the latter observed if he was hit by this bone drill even he could potentially be killed by it, a testament to the incredible piercing and damaging capability of the weapon. This can also be used as a follow-up to Dance of the Clematis: Vine, by using his spine to wrap around them, pulling them in, and then drilling straight through their body with Dance of the Clematis: Flower.Hueso Selva
(Bone Forest): This is perhaps Kimimaro's ultimate technique out of all forms, though surprisingly it is mainly used for utility purposes and not straight up damage. By digging under ground with his bones until he is many meters deep, or being forced underground, Kimimaro can then utilize this technique. He grows bone from every surface of his body, literally becoming bone itself, which expand outward in every direction, travelling for miles. The bones he makes in this technique are harder than even the ones regularly used in his Segunda Etapa. The forest can cover up to fifteen square miles of ground, and are even capable of filling in entire rivers and lakes if either is nearby. The bones themselves are as wide and tall as trees and sharper than some of the most razor-sharp swords around. They jut out of the ground like trees, reaching heights of close to 15 meters.
Because he literally becomes the bone, he can form any part of his body from any bone tree in any location in the forest, meaning he can grow only his upper torso to fight, or he can come out of the bone completely to do battle (cannot form separate body parts at separate locations). This means he can also travel through the bone much, much faster than someone using Hoho techniques, letting him surprise opponents from every direction. Even after using this massive technique, Kimimaro can use both parts of his Clematis Dance to devastating effect, allowing him to not only surprise his opponents by wrapping his spinal cord chain staff around them from any direction without giving them much of a chance to react first, but he can then attack them with the Flower, and can do so repeatedly for quite some time, and as such is even more dangerous after creating this massively expansive forest of bone.
The two obvious downsides to using this ability are the limited height and scope of the Forest, which makes Hueso Selva useless against enemies who prefer to stay far up in the sky. Also, because the Forest isn't created instantly the initial growth is avoidable by very quick opponents capable of dodging upwards or outrunning the tree-sized bones as they shoot out of the earth. Finally due to the sheer amount of bone creation involved with this technique it drains Kimimaro of a tremendous volume of energy, though thankfully for him after the bones are created they require no fuel or upkeep. This ability can only be used once a thread and while the bones don't disappear unless destroyed, Kimimaro retains the ability to continuously travel through the bone forest for 5 posting rounds before having to stop for the rest of the thread. Forcing himself beyond this can drastically reduce the length of time his Segunda Etapa can remain active.

Provide a duration for which this ability would last, especially due to the massive energy consumption involved and the sheer magnitude of this ability. Since, producing that much bone, with the added application of letting him move incredibly fast on top of the fact that his overall durability and defense is basically marvel juggernaut. He also retains his unit-combat potential from being able to re-emerge in any number of locations at a whim, maintaining it at the highest degree on top of now gaining the availability for a lot more separate application, all while having an indeterminate time-limit. Beyond time-limit, maybe noting that the amount of energy expenditure can also cause the duration of his Segunda Etapa as a whole whilst using this technique to decrease as he uses more and more energy. Other than that, everything here is good to go.
