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:
[Under the Shadow Fall Defenses, every Shadow Fall member has access to ONE replica shell that is akin to Neoveta's own replica shells. There is NO other Mana replica shell running around, so I'm using Mana's Royal Demon Shell for this event thread and it should be placed at 0-3 tier. The reason for this is because this is a shell that has NEVER been used and has been kept in storage feeding off the energy of demon world and The Demi-Network until an occassion suitable enough for it's activation was achieved. So, for this event only, the shell will be 0-3. Afterward, it can be assumed it will be around 0-5.]
Fragile. Everything was so damn fragile. The fabric which holds this world together, the bonds which keep a person's mind stable, the border between peace and hell; all it was so fucking frail that it only took the slightest of touches to rip apart that serenity into a million scattered pieces in the wind. As did but a single touch of the goddess Eris is all that it took for mortal beings to lose complete sense of themselves to the scent of total madness that lays within every persons core ego. To shatter it, capture it and throw it into a sea of derealized is but a simple task for one who lacks the willpower to endure such hells.
And it is along these lines of ghoulish logic that the collective individuals who maintained the Yuudeshi Network within the depths of Karakura Central found themselves ensnared under the possession of The Demon Queen. One by one, over weeks at a time prior to this build up, The Demoness saw fit to subjugate their minds under her will so that she may be able to utilize them when the time was ripe and ready to strike. As it was becoming apparent that the world was becoming their enemy, Mana Asthavon directed those who were under her possession to start the process of letting their wildest fantasies of violence arise.
When the command to go berserk was initiated within their minds, explosions soon began to occur within the depths of Karakura Central itself. These came from not only official Yuudeshi officials, but many thousands of agents who compromised themselves in the Lux Orior who were of no significance to anyone in her mind. Even ordinary citizens who played no part in either faction were fair game since they were the enemy all the same and were brainwashed by her power to absolutely lose their shit. Thus -- blood filled the streets, smoke filled the air and the stench of death started to carry across the city as the citizens and allies alike were being attacked by their own men and people.
The death toll on the initial impact of attack was estimated to be in the hundreds of thousands as people were self-destructing, butchering others, ramming vehicles into buildings/living beings, mutilating themselves, raping one another and every violent and insane act one could think of was occurring in the streets. All the while, in the background, those in control of The Yuudeshi Network were halting communications, breaking equipment and diffusing the barrier around Karakura Central as many agents of The Yuudeshi and Lux Orior would undoubtedly be aware of this tampering at this point.
Many teleportation points were being sealed off, large chunks of the dome around the city were falling to pieces and others in the clan who were not influenced by Mana were rushing to try and get operations back on. It is why the time to attack was keen now as while they were in the process of trying to restore balance and order is when The Demon Queen would appear in the skies above Karakura Central with a smile on her face.
The world wanted her dead, that was for certain. The civil wars in demon world, the conflict in the Asthavon and the world war on earth were all signs that this was the hell she knew would come one day; yet no fear was held in her head. Why fear the game of life when you play to win or play to lose and die? Life, death; the boundaries between the two were meaningless when you've danced between them for so many century.
Instead, there was a simple exhale of placid breathing which escaped her lips before she ultimately snapped her fingers and hordes of Shadow Fall troops were able to come to her aid out of demonic vortexes which opened all around Karakura Central. With portions of the barrier still intact, the Shadow Fall operatives were forced to invade the city head-on since she could not warp them straight into the city at this point.
"Ya' fail to realize, that for us demons....this is a way of life. To kill, be killed and indulge ourselves in the prospect of war is one more savage than any human can realize. But I won't bore you with any philosophical speeches. No. Most of you won't live long enough to take pleasure in that. Instead, just drop dead, my lovely s'ugahs."
There was then a pause before she added one more dialogueialouge for all in the city to hear.
"I just hope those who put ya' on ya' death bed really believed this was the best decision. As I'll ensure all those spirits who die by my hand or another demon's on this day suffer in hell when I'm done here for as long as feasibly possible."
Thus, the halls of hell and war were opened by the Demon Queen. She wasted no time after that, as her eyes scanned the city above, The Royal Demoness let out a screech which made the earth quiver, the heavens shake and the skies blacken with emerald and black energy. Loud claps of thunder and lightning filled the air before a vortex of gem green energy was seen shooting from the ground of Karakura Central's entrance, flying toward the air at mach speed and heading toward the depth of Sukai Karakura so that she may blow it out of the sky. As the energy blast shot from her was more than potent enough to otherwise oblierate entire cities off the map, and there was only more energy to come out of this vessel as she seemed intent on causing mass damage. "...Come out, my King. I will serve you in whatever way you wish today as it's time we make these fools remember just who the hell they are dealing with."

THE DEMON KING COMES
रा व ण रा क्ष स
If it weren't for the chaos ensuing in the streets of Karakura, the emerald green skies would almost be beautiful. For miles on end, and through the shaking of the earth beneath their feet, all of Japan could tell war was coming. It had been a long time coming, everyone expected it, the tensions of all world leaders were ready to snap at a moments notice. Mana, the Demon Queen, was the icing on the cake. Her chaos, her madness, it seeped into everything; even those of strong will would find it hard to resist the urges that pulsated throughout all of Japan.
Even though the seeds of destruction had been planted, and the city of Karakura began to collapse on itself, the job was far from over. Given long enough, organizations would react, and the madness that took weeks, months even, to fester and allow such a calamitous event to occur would be for nothing.
A deep, abyssal wave of Za Koa was felt throughout the skies. The emerald glow was the perfect gateway, a gateway for not only millions of demons to land on the outer perimeter of Karakura City, but for the Demon King to make his appearance for the first time. Like a tear in space itself, the abyss ripped further across the skyline, and from within stumbled demons of all shapes and sizes. Large and demonic hell bound creatures slammed into the earth miles below, and from within them stood a single man. His hair was jet black and across his face, he wore a half-mask that covered the entire jawline and mouth - from his eyes leaked a thick red and black liquid that stained his clothes. A large black overcoat covered his body, and in his hands was an entire head covered in blood. Indented into the face was his fingers, and where he grasped split the very skin. Swinging his hand forward, the severed head was thrown onto the earth, and as he did, from the black abyss behind him began to widen.
A small smile escaped the side of his mouth, and nodding to the quite obvious shell of Mana, he was very visibly happy to finally be fighting alongside the Demon Queen, the first time since he was recruited as Demon King.
"This is a great first date my queen, so nice of you to invite me. I can't think of any restaurant that makes anything better than the taste of Yuudeshi blood."
His eyes began to dart back across the landscape and Ravan's voice began to boom across Karakura, to a point where it shook even buildings.
"I don't give a shit about big, motivational speeches. Just fucking die already."
As soon as his voice stopped echoing, the emerald green skies became almost entirely blacked out. As the entire city became shrouded in darkness, Ravan's own eyes became to roll backwards, revealing an entirely black sclera over both eyes. The red and black goo that leaked from his eyes began to cover the his entire body now. Within seconds, it had evaporated, and ripping through space itself was an entirely new land unknown to Earth. As soon as the sky split, and the pitch black world of darkness began to slam it's own skull ridden-floor into skyline of Karakura City, the essence of Hell had began to leak out onto the battlefield.
Ravan had just summoned his layer of Hell directly on top of Karakura city's outskirts.
It crashed through buildings onto the outskirts, and covered ten total kilometers in all directions. Anyone directly in it's path was surely killed, and the hundred of thousands of civillians still on the outer ring of Karakura would have been crushed or driven mad from the Za Koa pressure alone. They had both arrived at a time where defenses were weak, and response times slow, making this the perfect opportunity for destruction. The black rolled over eyes held a tinge of red now, and they had a blood-red glow.
Pinching his fingers together, Ravan's eyes began to squint. He could feel the power of hell, his layer summoned onto the battlefield, empowering him to an immense point - allowing him to activate his Dagi Tvaca. A thin red light began to appear, on a street level, and paying no mind to the millions of demons rushing into the city below him, Ravan snapped his fingers and let out an explosion of epic proportions, one that continued to travel through the city outskirts and make it's way to the center slowly. Within a moment, an entire kilometer of cityscape had been turned to rubble, and dust littered the air. If nobody, if nothing found a way to halt this explosive chain of events, it would make it's way to the city center within a matter of seconds, wiping out anything and anyone in the immediate vicinity.
Ravan began to speak, but entirely inaudible to the human ears. In his hell-demon language, he began to speak in a twisted tongue unlike anything heard before. It echoed and made impossible noises.
Given enough time, his layer of hell would continue to leak itself out onto the city. If Ravan weren't stopped, it's quite possible the layer itself could consume all of Karakura. Only time would tell.

PUT WORDS HERE NOW
Artist: N/A - Song: Broly Remix
'This was not expected.'
Those words seemed to explode into Hayden's mind as he placed down the telephone in his hands, his eyes staring onto the city scape of Karakura. In the few moments of the war it had already been brought to the doorstep of one of the most defended cities, nations, on earth. It was all happening so quickly and fast that the man barely had time to respond, he was the chairman of defense and support for the fresh earth organization- and it seemed like he was being spurred in to action already. He knew for a fact the only other chairman which would be able to arrive to make a difference would be himself- and Yuel.
A realization would dawn on his as he gripped his Zanpakatou, the blade howling in his mind to be fully unleashed, that this was one of the moments he had spent years building towards. It was like a pressure gate exploding in his mind as he began to shake slightly, eyes focusing intently on the skyscapper window as he felt another dramatic pressure explode into world. An energy he was all to familar with. There was no time to leave this building properly, there was no time to contact someone else- all he had to do was act now as the surge of demonic energy spread across the city.
He couldn't tell you when he took the first step, only that the sound of glass shattering seemed to fill his world. In a fit of distilled rage and anger, he had thrown himself from the sky scrapped window and was now falling hundreds of feet towards the earth. The king of Vastime, and chairman to Lux's defense sector was going to addressing this matter personally. With extreme prejudice. With that being said as he pluminated towards the earth, a cacophonous surge of energy would be felt radiating from around him- a level of energy which seemed to rage against the chaos which was now seeping into the city. In a brillant display of energy he was speeding towards the massive rippling energy wave now beginning to form, his crimson reiatsu creating a visible aura as he beelined towards the energy unsheathing his Zanpakatou.
In a display of raw might and rage the man crashed head first into the wave of demonic energy. For a moment the world would cease all noise for him, his energy disappearing before a moment. The war which was raged via the Lux soldiers and demons seemed to fill the void, the world seemed to be raging against the incursion made by these demonic forces. But as the red vortex seemed to be pulsating with energy within it's womb was a man being reborn. In the darkness of the demon known of Ravan's energy, there was a shifting of man.
Hayden didn't expect the world to become a explosion of energy, he was expecting to absorb the energy before it even made landfall. But what happened instead was as the energy flooded his body he began to roar in pain, which was impressive due to his mastery over pain. His body literally tearing it's self apart and rebuilding it's self in the same breath- his voice breaking the silence of the void- the clone of Mana and Ravan would begin to feel an influx of power rising and rising beyond what was previously felt. Ravan's energy and Hayden's own beginning to merge into one synchronized being, initiated by a single concept: Death himself. Three years in the making, the death matter of Hayden and the deathling known as Ravan had made full contact and in doing so unlocked a latent potential within the man.
In a roar which seemed more bestial than man, an overwhelming aura of rage and death seemed to flood Karakura. The lux operatives who where fighting feeling a blood thirst, spurred on by the anger which soon was magnified by the events unfolding. The explosion which Ravan sought to make instead imploding as the world shook around them, the very realm becoming discolor'd and shattered around the point of origin. Before the darkness would subside revealing a man which was not the Hayden they knew, but neither was it a being of Ravan. Instead a skull like face was revealed, a thin black sword held in clawed hands. The imperfections of scars no longer on the blackened skin of Hayden, instead revealing a larger and beefier monster.
And from this being Ravan would see black orbs which where eyes, filled with such hatred and malcontent that he hadn't seen in Hayden before. Instead he was staring at an embodiment of raw rage and the will to see it through. Hayden would lift the blade as he let out a roar which caused the area to shake, an explosion of his reiatsu feeling the world as the discoloration of the world seemed to rapidly shift- before returning to normal. The monster which was now Hayden would speak, sounding like Hayden's voice overlayed with something.. demonic. "I'm going to rip your fucking limbs off, you disgusting waste of energy. You have no fucking right being here, speaking of strength as if you have any. So fucking pathetic that this was the offspring of death, fuck that. I'll kill you and take the throne myself if this is what counts as a fucking monster." His voice growled, the baritone nature deepened by a sick disgusted tone. Such anger and rage unrestrained by diplomatic means- a monster locked away for years now. His blade raising as his muscles began to emit a black smoke, gripping the blade with two hands as he prepared to bring forth a murderous assault onto the Throne of Shadowfall.

Yuel could finally call herself "Miss Worldwide". After the events of the Karakura Summit, Yuel operated more or less as a figurehead, maybe more accurately as a "face" for the Lux Orior. While she wasn't the actual head of the sector that handled diplomacy, having been a major part of the organisation's internal structure, she made sure to have everything in order and capable enough for her absence from the base of operations to extend the power and influence of her own sector--the Research and Development Sector. For that reason, Yuel had gone around to allying nations and organisations to establish cordial basis and promises for cooperation in the development of their technologies. Up until now, she was able to gain guarantees from Vastime, the Gotei, and most recently--at the very least--a hopeful but yet to be finalised promise with the Solomon Sovereignty. From what she knew, although their leader wasn't fickle, they were exceptionally mysterious and cautious with the bonds they'd made overseas.
Throughout these experiences, Yuel found much more confidence in herself, her ability to communicate with allies, and most importantly her ability to communicate with her zanpakuto spirit. During the journey, she constantly maintained contact with Lov Rahjun and strengthened their bond. It was the prescience of her future memories and selves that hinted at the need for their bond to grow stronger, and very quickly at that. Such that, to her surprise, the moment where that bond need come into play was much sooner than anticipated. Upon her arrival back to Japan, after visiting her family still in their little village, the young chairman made way on ground back to Karakura. What greeted her was, most directly put, anarchy.
Immediately once she recognised the presences of origin for this chaos, the legendary Demon Queen Mana Asthavon, and the most recently crowned Demon King Ravan Vespara, Yuel made conscious connection to the Yuudeshi Network. It was vital that she quickly gathered all the information on hand to establish what was actually happening. The girl swallowed down the anxiety and panic that usually came out in these moments of crises and focused up on the issues that needed to be prioritised. Of course, it was difficult, especially considering the frightful words of the Demon Queen.
"Hello?!?! Anyone online capable of explaining what's going on?!"
The lack of coherent response was the most frightening thing. Given the surroundings, what seemed to be civilians involved in rioting and mayhem, and the presence of Mana Asthavon who was known to cause a decline in civility wherever she went, the pieces were easy enough to put together. So the most vital thing at the moment was to appropriately process all the information and make up a game plan. Given Mana and Ravan's presence and the nature of their demonic influence, it seemed unreasonable to instantly kick out all the demons and deal with them head-on in current circumstance, even using overwhelming and unruly force. The most important objective most immediately was to evacuate the civilians so that any further action could be conducted without worry of collateral damage.
Jump into it already.
The cold tone of her zanpakuto spirit rung about in her head, and while you couldn't quite call him the voice of reason for Yuel, he was definitely much more grounded than her. Such that, with her mind wandering in panic and planning, he decided to step in and remind her that the most important time in this scenario was to act in the present and not be consumed by plans for the future.
"A-aha, you're right, you're right. Thanks, Lov."
Once she grasped herself more comfortably, Yuel closed her eyes and focused on the sensations she repeatedly experienced during experimentation. After the events with Ulv, Yuel was finally able to sense spiritual beings and energy, and from that she could also just barely grasp the power dormant within her. Focusing on that energy, Yuel acutely drew it out, simultaneously reciting the words of power necessary to utilise this energy.
"My will is truth; my word is law. Arise, Lov Rahjun."
Once these words came out, the energy being drawn from deep within her inner world blossomed and enveloped her body. The energy shined illustriously, like the sun itself at dawn. The golden yellow energy gushed out of her location like a tsunami hitting the shores, and once the blinding light of her transformation subsided, what was left in a yellow glow was a small, horned form, and a grotesquely large sword by its side.
At the same time, Yuel was actively utilising the Yuudeshi Network and connecting herself to all the affected individuals being driven mad by the demonic energies running rampant. The girl granted access for the network to access her mind directly, and during the exchange undergo a process to stabilise the system itself and all the persons managing it, establishing control and order to the whole network.
Once her shikai was summoned and a semblance of organisation to the Yuudeshi Network and connected individuals was confirmed, the Duulheim removed focus from its management and laid her eyes on the surroundings. This time, instead of simply observing and gathering data from the network, Yuel was analysing her situation directly. With her Eyes of the Prophet, the sub-shinigami was able to quickly ascertain the multiple elements and variables in play. The Za Koa energy rampaging about, the chaotic element available to quickly discern the possessive magic in play here, and most importantly, a solid layout of where the demons were approaching through their portals. All the information present was rapidly absorbed and processed in Yuel's mind, soon to become tools of her own.
Once the information gathered was processed and understood, it was time to take action. World Embodiment--it was an ability not unlike Ravan's ability to summon his layer. The mindscape Yuel once formulated to accommodate her Arms of the Earth Technique that she learned from Ulv--with her World of Embodiment ability, it wouldn't merely be a mindscape. Instead, it was an entire plane of existence that could go beyond conceptual and instead superimpose itself with the current realm. So, obviously, she intended to summon it.
In a radius of 50 kilometres, the skies grew clear of atmosphere and clouds. Instead, a collage of massive celestial bodies coated the skies, and an oceans worth of energy descended from the sky. The then kilometres of Hellscape summoned by Ravan and massive swathes of space infected by Mana's emerald energy wasn't completely affected, such that within those zones the emerald sky turned black by the Demon King's influence remained--but immediately outside that area? The whole world seemed to change.
During this time, Yuel made sure to start early on her plans to counterattack. On the debris and rubble around her, on the bandages wrapped around her body, and through the tattoos carved into her body, Yuel started funneling the latent energies into her Renkinjtusu seals being drawn into these articles. It was almost fortunate that the territorial effects from such heavy hitters like Ravan and Mana were done in Yuel's presence. Even the Za Koa energies leaking from around the areas were rapidly being absorbed by her Kaisha Undou seals, which served to absorb latent and roaming energies to later fuel and power other alchemical seals.
Some of these other seals were reminiscent of the seals she once used in mongolia to summon massive celestial entities that could devastate the world around her--but of course, effects on that scale would take time to manifest their full power. She had to make certain that the energy they were absorbing and channeling wouldn't be interfered with, hence summoning them through the tattoos on her body and bandages wrapped around her limbs, keeping it close to her to avoid interference. It also served to immediately clear out the foreign energies in her immediate vicinity to stabilise the realm around her from the chaotic effects of the demonic energies, allowing her own energy to pervade throughout space and establish control of the area for herself.
Aside from her preparations with renkinjutsu, the areas within Ravan and Mana's influence couldn't be overtaken, but at the very least Yuel would be able to manage clearing the area of innocents and debris. Utilising her ability to synchronise subjects, Yuel took the fallen and destroyed buildings, the broken terrain, debris, and rubble, and synchronised them into her conceptual world. From there, she transferred the debris outside of the immediate vicinity of Karakura Central's city zones, and into the area of 50 kilometres within her control and outside of Mana and Ravan's influenced area. If they were going to fight, at least take out the obstacles, right?
And once all these preparations were in order? It was time to meet the faces of these folks. With a smile, of course--that's the point of hospitality. The young girl arose from the ground-level, rising into the skies to meet her adversaries properly, a good 250 metres of distance away from them--just to be sure. If it were the usual Yuel, she'd certainly make preparations, but by no means would she ever want to be as confrontational as meeting her opponents face to face, even with such a distance set. When Yuel was in her shinigami form, however? The influence of her suika blood and the personality of her zanpakuto spirit seeped into her current self, a much more aggressive and abrasive type of girl. Especially when provoked by insults, such as Ravan's spiel of Karakura's weakness.
"Oi, laddie, come haur an' say it face tae face wa dornt ye? I'll shaw ye weak, jist lend me a mirrur."
The scottish drawl to her words may have made it difficult to understand her retaliation, but it was definitely a verbal retaliation--the smirk on her face, and the tightened grip on her massive zanpakuto drawn into an aggressive stance made this clear. A crushing wave of spiritual energy was subsequently summoned to wrap around her like a protective armour bracing for the inevitable clash.
"Teel ye whit, lad; let's rin a wee experiment. see whose warld runs better, but here's the thing--in mah warld, energy has a tendency tae attract. kin' ay loch gravity!"
Of course, neither Ravan nor Mana would properly understand the meaning to her words, but Yuel's mention of an experiment established the utilisation of her core ability: Theory Induction. The experiment immediately began. Under the stipulation that Yuel could use her spiritual energy to fill the void of a physical law by purposing her own theory, if she was able to maintain the effects of energy clumping together as if to simulate a gravity to them, although it would take a while in some time it would become an established law.
Energy that existed within the domain of her zone of influence would develop a gravity to it, such that the more energy was concentrated in a certain area, the higher the tendency of attraction it held, such that pulling energy apart from its clumps would be incredibly difficult. In the long run, this meant that, especially for persons of such higher energy content and power as them, it would become absurdly difficult to utilise their energy normally and comfortably. This experiment had to persistently operate for one continuous duration, and interrupting the active concentration and cluster of energy outside her body was necessary for the theory to be induced, hence the usage of her renkinjutsu seals on her bandages aside from the tattoos on her physical body.
If it wasn't for the oncoming presence, Yuel might've already jumped to pounce on Ravan, but such an engagement found delay. From the very skies like a cannon ball, a fortunate ally came tunneling towards the area between her and the two demons. By the time he made impact, Yuel successfully analysed their presence and determined who it was.
"Thaur ye aur, ye big oaf. How're ye gonnae come late tae defendin' Karakura, Defense an' Support Chairman?"
Actually, it wasn't just Hayden. During his arrival, it was definitely Hayden, but once the dust cleared from his flashy entrance, what revealed itself wasn't simply the Vastimian Militant-King. In all honesty, for a vizard he looked a lot more demonic--which was saying something, considering Yuel was a Suika. Naturally, she begun analysing her ally with her Eyes of the Prophet, and from there was quickly able to understand the interaction underwent to turn Hayden into a much more malicious creature. So malicious, in fact, that Hayden was speaking with absurd vulgarity and profanity, to the point of Yuel's discomfort, prompting her to quickly log all these changes of his into the Yuudeshi Network for documentation.
"Ye best calm yerself, laddie. but, since yoo're haur, Ah suppose i'll shift focus."
True to her words, Yuel's aggressive stance was maintained, but her eyes shifted from being focused on Ravan and instead to his counterpart, the Demon Queen Mana Asthavon. In this moment, Yuel kept her calm and cooly began analysing all the information she could accrue of Mana, and cross-referenced it with what the Yuudeshi Network could manage as well as previous records on the Goddess of Discord. All the data Yuel needed to manage understanding her opponent and how to break the bitch down, block by block.

Song: Pedantic Chaos - Word Count: N/A
[REFER TO THIS SPOILER]
x Disruption Control: After reawakening her Danavahood, Mana had came to discover that her Origin of Chaos granted her the ability to control, produce or otherwise control the flow of stabilization within or around her. This can be utilized through touch in some instances, infuses this element into her energy for a more broad control or releasing in sudden waves to effect the vicinity around her. So, essentially, this means that Mana can cause instabilities of creatures, beings and objects on a variety of levels. For instance, if she were able to grab on to a cero based attack? It's very possible for her to cause such disruptances to the flow of energy pulsing inside of this blast in order to either have it fall apart, attempt to lower it's effects on her by destabilizing it's core or potentially have this ability spread throughout a ten meter radius in order to have it break down before it even touches her.
On a more complex level, Mana even has the potential to effect biological systems if she were to spread her influence inside of the opponent. This could be done if she were to somehow inject this influence inside of them through her powers, or figure out a way to make an open wound or cut in the opponent. From there? She could attempt to destabilize the very nature/being of that creature if it allowed to fully take control. For instance, she could make a person's own power be used against them and backfire each time they use it or, on a more dangerous level, make their power so unstable it risks harming their well being due to the very chaotic state of their energy, powers or body.
Even more then that, this ability can even effect the very laws of physics with Mana's fine-control over this attribute. An instance of this occurring would be Mana destabilizing the field of gravity around her to make things either heavier or lighter then they normally would be, perhaps even effect the level of momentum within a given area and slowing or accelerating objects within this field; or, on a more intricate level, even lead into limited levels of Quantum Control by effecting the state of energy levels in electrons, matter, atoms, and molecules in a physical and metaphysical state. An instance of this being used would be if someone were to produce an energy based attack against Mana. By influencing the matter inside of this blast, she could possibly attempt to tear this attack apart before it reaches her.
However, with every great power lays a great drawback. While she may be able to do all of these amazing effects, the more powerful the alteration is? The more intense the toll can be taken on her body. For instance, if Mana were to try this on a city-wide scale, she could do that easily enough. However, she would feel physical exhaustion from her body being pushed that hard, mental fatigue from conjuring up all the many different applications this ability has and, of course, dips in her overall energy supply because of the amount of resources this power can sometimes have. Let's not forget that this isn't an absolute power and these attributes can be countered if the opponent has enough knowledge of what is occurring with them or the environmental.
Furthermore, if she isn't careful or pays attention to how she uses this ability, it can drain her pretty quickly at that. Therefore, she prefers to stay focused or be in a mental state to observe the different calculations, patterns or adjustments she may need to do or see in this power. Lastly, she is only limited to changing, at a maximum, five to six changes at a time; while on average, she only changes two or three elements, beings or systems at a given time. This is to prevent any overuse of this ability from getting too out of control for Mana and keep her own balance. For, if she passes that limit without releasing or entering an augmented state, she can risk having these powers backfire on her if it's used more then that. Thus, she prefers to keep it within the range of modifications at a single given time if she has not enhanced herself.
These type of conflicts tend to move at supersonic speeds, did they not? So it was clear that all the actions taking place were moving at a movement of speed most humans couldn't bother to fathom. Ergo, the variables of this battle were becoming apparent and The Demon Queen didn't seem too concerned one way or another as the conflict of Ravan and Hayden started to otherwise get underway. She wasn't quite too certain what was occurring with The Vizard, but it was apparent that taking that attack headfirst wasn't the smartest of ideas. After all, Ol' Mana only grew stronger from the madness, chaos, and strife being induced upon the mind and body of Hayden.
Furthermore, the body of Hayden could sustain a great deal of damage from the influence of Mana's Disruption Control. This meant that the instability that his mind, body, and heart was under after being in such strife and taking a direct blow from the energy left him potentially vulnerable to her chaotic influence. And this wasn't something that dealt with anything to will, as this ability could cause instabilities on the biological and metaphysical essence of a character.
So Mana intended to give Ravan a leg up on the battle by inducing an internal sense of destabilization upon Hayden's body. He may feel many of his organs being damaged, random wounds opening across his body, excess amounts of spiritual energy leaving him and feeling a sense that it's harder to otherwise summon his abilities. This is because her disruption control was all the more potent with the amount of chaos, strife and madness being induced in the city and it would be hard to outright purge given his current state of outright chaos around his body. Which means that outright tanking it, negating it or otherwise absorbing all of this energy was nearly impossible.
With that little matter taken care of, Mana then could set her sights on the yellow banana raging toward her way. And as soon as Yuel attempted to absorb the latent energy around her, she'd find these seals she placed being destabilized. Again, rather than relying on a million other abilities, The Queen decided to focus in on her element of chaos and this singular power for the time being. Ergo, she sought to disrupt the flow of balance within these seals to outright obliterate them and have them disintegrate before Yuel's eyes to prevent any further tom-foolery from taking place with her Disruption Control ability. At the same time, this may cause World Embodiment to outright be negated in the best possible scenario because Disruption Control's influence could cover the 50-kilometer radius in the sky and destabilize it to the point of being unable to be summoned effectively or safely.
Of course, in a battle of this scale, concessions had to be made as well. Given that she already caused a strong amount of carnage being here, Mana's bigger priority was dealing with the tampering hand of Yuel in this battle so that she may otherwise have room to eventually better assist Ravan in his clash against Hayden.
'I'll assist ya how I can, but it looks like I'll take 'da angry Scottish banana ovah' there.'
These words would enter into the mind of Ravan as The Demoness knew how this battle was going to go from this point onward. So, rather than waste time engaging in a dialogue with the fiesty oni, The Demon Queen's precise awareness of the metaphysical knew that the world around them was altering from her presence. Hence, after taking a quick deep breath, The Royal Asthavon let out a demonic screech which deafened the whole city around them as she sought to utilize her Disruptive Control to otherwise rip apart the very concept of Yuel's influence over physical law and negate it by using Disruption Control's ability to tear apart the metaphysical matter which induced this supernatural occurrence to take place in the world around them.
Then, no matter what occurred before or after, Mana then motioned for all the excess amounts of Za Koa in the area to bend to her will and fired multiple burst of energy akin to a cero toward the direction of Yuel so that she may be forced to go on the defense or offense. There were a total of two dozen of these blasts and each of them was devoured in an emerald, black and red color. If they were to make direct contact on Yuel, she may find herself becoming more destabilized as they were filled with Disruptive Control's influence and she may find it harder to keep her mental facilities focused, more difficult to summon her energy safely and her body may outright start to decay on itself and could start bleeding, organs malfunctioning and bones may shatter, break or crack under this influence. And this is ignoring the obvious fact that if they explode immense waves of fire may devour her body, the impact force could lower her durability and the drain of having to deal with mulitple attacks could take it's toll on the young fighter.
Regardless, Mana made sure to keep moving and went upwards in the air to otherwise gain a further aerial advantage and await to see the results of her attacks as the sounds of giggling children were heard in the essence of her energy being released into the space around them all.
"Come n' get me then, bitch."
n' with those words roared with a smile and wink of her right eye, Mana antagonized the golden banana and dared her to come and attack.

THE DEMON KING COMES
रा व ण रा क्ष स
You know, when people talked about Karakura, they always said it was a beautiful city. Many people came through and wound up making a living here, from all different walks of life. But the moment Ravan had arrived, he only felt a strong sense of disdain. Maybe it was his natural draw to chaos and disorder, the destruction and death of everything around him, but the city was nothing special. It fell over like a ton of bricks, and the defenses that were so ready to stop people like him from entering failed from a simple parlor trick from the Demon Queen. How pathetic it all was. How easily their world began to crumble.
As these thoughts raced through his mind, watching the explosions below him travel through the streets, an audible groan was let out the moment Hayden's presence was felt. The last time these two met was in the middle east, on a "diplomatic mission", ending in the destroyed skull of a local man. It seemed, however, Hayden's choice to defend Karakura was a curious one. Ravan knew the scale of attack that Shadow Fall had planned, and he didn't decide to make himself present in Vastime? How wildly disappointing, he thought, that Shadin didn't show up. He would have killed for a taste of that Yuudeshi blood once more. Though he had these thoughts, a lot of them were dissuaded, as he cocked his head to the side and watched the Vizard tank his blast with a wild, echoing scream. Ravan's pitch black eyes widened, and almost fell into a fit of hysterics as the man before him shifting into a demonic essence, a wild a skull-like mask covering his face.
"HahahahaHAHAHAHAH, oh MAN you're a funny guy. I almost miss the old political Hayden. What a savage you've turned into, and I'm supposed to be the monster?" His voice echoed three, then four, times; layering over itself to make it sound distorted but still audible.
As he scanned Hayden's new form, his gaze barely even shifted as the body and angry, yelling voice of a small girl filled his ears. His eye twitched slightly, and an annoyed expression crossed his face. The small blast of force that expelled demonic ground troops from central Karakura was effective at first, but the longer Ravan's layer of Hell slid onto Karakura itself, the harder it would be to hold back the demonic energies and beasts that were pushed back. Initially, he was astonished this Shinigami woman could understand his words. They were spoken in a language very few people could understand, and it almost made him merciful towards her, if only to talk and learn more about her study of the language. That is, if her rightfully annoying accent didn't drive him to complete insanity first.
"Learn how to fucking speak you blithering retard. I've killed children that speak clearer than you."
It was obvious from the start. Hayden was here to fight Ravan. This woman, who seemed to try calm the chaos and remove any sense of madness spreading through the city, was not his main target. Even if he tried, he was sure Hayden, the Vastimian king, would get in the way. So it seemed all he had to do was cut a hole through the target and continue the destruction instead. Ravan's black eyes rolled back in his head for a moment, and for but a moment, his body was visibly shifting as bones began to move under his skin. By the time his head tilted back down, a wicked smile crossed his face - and the demonic presence of the Demon King began to finally take hold.
He was prepared to fight, but Ravan was not even touching a portion of his strength yet. He hoped he didn't have to use "that", but Ravan knew anything was possible in this war.
"Come and get it, third-rate."
Within moments, eyes began to spread out all over the battlefield. From the dead bodies littering the streets, to the stains of blood coating the walls -- every single inch of Karakura was now visible to Ravan. He processed it incredibly fast, and all this information began to flood his brain. Sneak attacks, surprises, anything that would normally be invisible in the midst of a fight was now in his domain. Nothing would remain hidden. The more death, the more bodies, the more eyes he grew. And the more his range of vision covered.
Yet the moment these eyes spawned, Ravan's smile turned into a blank stare, and his body shifted at lightning-speeds towards the demonic Hayden. His arm had become inverted, and the hand began to glow with Za Koa, before entirely shifting to that of a demonic black and red. At the end of his arm, his arm had shifted into the jaws of a wild beast, and within a blink aimed to grasp onto the top of Hayden's shoulder. If these teeth sank in properly, it would clench down, and by the time his arm pulled back, would rip out a chunk of flesh within an instant. The morphed arm of Ravan wasn't the only challenge Hayden would face, as the moment he landed the darkness present from the layer of Hell and surrounding skyline would create a demonic hand to raise from the ground below. Covering one kilometer in width and depth, five hundred in height, the demonic shadow would materialize and grasp the two of them in it's palm. Clenching it's fist almost instantly, the shadow would yank them both into the ground alongside it.
Although Ravan was present in this attack, the black darkness seemed to melt around his frame, while the buildings and civilians in the vicinity were also picked up in it's shadow grasp. If Hayden were in this too, it was obvious he would be caught to. Ravan knew that Hayden's physical strength was nothing to laugh at, so the moment that grasp took hold, he readied himself for a retaliation. His black red eyes began to bulge out of his head, and that wicked grin was present on his face again. Bones seemed to continuously move under his skin, and a red pulsating light began to glow in the area around them...

DEATH AWAKENS IN THE HERO
Artist: N/A - Song: Broly Remix
If Hayden had more words to say he did not show in. There was more pressing issues as this ally and enemys sought to speak to him, all their words just further annoying the man. Why was he annoyed? It was simple, because he hadn't began to start fighting yet. Perhaps they thought he was a mass of unstable energy but now, what they had done for him was give him the last push he needed to become what was destined of him the day he met Wolf Lionus. All those years ago when he was a young pup fresh to war, now a hellhound unleashed upon them.
The culmination of years of progress, distilled into a singular intent to see Shadowfall brought to heel.
But more important was Mana seeking to assert her power over his fresh new body, it would not be as empowered as she intially thought for this form of Hayden held no energy instabilities or madness. It rather was extremely ordered, as if it this was his natural state of being. Yet, that would not stop the assault of the metaphysical concept upon his being- easily seeking to hamper or destroy him in it's entirety. But in truth, Hayden held a defense granted to him by his innate shinigami abilities. One that was only further empowered by the new self realization .
The Semper Invictus Armatus was not only manifested, but one with him. As was all the energies he had absorbed, simply a state of being. They had Coalescence to create the man before them, thus he was benefiting from all the attributes granted to him. Even without saying his release phrase for his Shikai was power was on part with it, his energy was rising by the moment not in a singular burst by just a steady stream. Due to his shikai inherit powers Mana would find her efforts to attack the metaphysical hampered, as Hayden was one of the few beings in the world who defenses where almost wholly geared towards defense from being attacked or destroyed on the metaphysical concept. But with that being said, a black ooze would cough out of his mouth- no doubt a byproduct of Mana's on his body.
If you wished to kill Hayden, or truly damage him, one must come at him as Ravan did.
But her efforts where not without effort, as he gripped his blade he could feel his body slowed for the moment. Enough to not instantly react to Ravan's attack, but afterwards the effect would be dispelled from his being to no longer hinder him.
Ravan would see the endless void of which was Hayden eyes, gazing at him as he began to morph his arm into something out of nightmares. Despite the ghoulish face he possessed there was such an external display of malice and rage. As if by the second he stared at this abomination upon his planet he sought to rip him to pieces. Thus he would come at Hayden, who was somewhat slowed by Mana's effects. But what Hayden did next would be impressive by all standards of measurement. As the fangs bore down on him they would sink themselves into the black mass of Hayden's shoulder, as black liquid seemed to pour out onto his mutated arm.
Yet, Hayden had not sought to defensively react instead forsaking moving instead his face steadily becoming more and more disturbed. His muscles seemed to pulsate as he held the sword with both hands, for at this point the black hand had manifested above them. At this point what Hayden was channeling would make it's self known, the rising of his energy steadily would condense into his blade which was already raised slightly. With herclean effort he would slash the black from it's maximum height to as low as the arc would allow releasing with it something of shock and awe upon the world.
Three things must be considered here. Hayden had allowed Ravan to strike him while he prepared this attack. Ravan was firmly latched onto his shoulder, although the teeth where met with resistance as a black ooze seeped onto his mutated arm. Secondly, Hayden had allowed the Mana effect to wear off before opting to make this attack. And thirdly this attack was made as the Hand has just formed above them. Now with those in mind, the blade strike it's self must be examined.
The technique in question was II Ryodan Ianiatus, an improved and empowered verison of the ancient technique of Ryodan. The user by gripping their blade with two hands infusing their energy into the purely physical strike would hit with tremendous force. Kenpachi Zaraki had made the technique known, but it was Hayden who brought it into the next stage infusing his highly empowered energy into the technique. Thus when the blade slashed the area around the two would crack and implode for 200 meters, despite the attack being focused. The attack sought to completely disrupt the hand opening above, seeking to tear the shadowy hand apart. Hayden believed that since both attacks inheritly interacted with the concept of 'death' that they would be met with some type of violent reaction.
As for Ravan he would feel the force which could effect continents squarely centered on him, if it was any other being the chances of this strike being seen or percieve was low. Due to the extreme level of speed and strength it was performed, Hayden to most had simply had his sword in the air- before it was simply no longer there. Furthermore, something else should be noted:
Any wound inflicted by this blade he would be met with a strange effect, or even energy. The area it's self would become grey and deaden. For this attack was not purely physical as initially thought. Instead, it was being removed from the entire process of life and death- being temporarily removed from the world entirely.
As Hayden stared at Ravan, he would open his mouth as a black haze left it. Pure malice and venom in his words as he spoke. He was already preparing for another attack of some sort, shifting his weight to one of his sides. "How does it go, stare into the abyss and it stares back? I've accepted what I am, but the difference between me and you-" The man would take a step to the side as he disappeared in a blur seeking to re position.
"I'm not a little shit."
Separation of Creation:- Hayden Shikai combines all aspects of his personality and powers to create someone able to stand for what he believes in. Sometimes you are faced with opposition that requires a bit more than the simply sword or energy attack to take them down, so he learned to focus his power to create a technique to handle those problems. The ‘Separation of Creation’ is Hayden combining his physical strength, his willpower, and finally the three powers that rest inside of him from his Zanpakutō, Vastimian, and Death Matter nature. What happens is his Zanpakutō radiates heat and energy, before releasing a cool atmosphere around it which is the death matter merging with his energies and his own willpower stabilizing the explosive energy. When this technique is activated anything Hayden manages to cut or slice is temporarily removed from the cycle of life and death; what does this mean? Well in short they are destroyed. For the post he attacks in, the area (the immediate wound and a few inches around)o he pierces will become a dull grey color and exhibit excruciating pain upon the victim as their physical body and ethereal body is being slowly broken away for up to the next two posts before returning to normal; yet any part of them completely erased will stay that way and while it will heal at a snail pace for those higher on the regeneration scale. This ability is obviously on the higher end of Hayden’s abilities and while he can choose to initiate this at the beginning of a fight it will severely limit all his other abilities while activated, at least cutting their power in half and up to seventy five percent limiting him to swordsmanship honestly; and if he chooses not to activate this upon entering into shikai he must use a post to activate this ability before using it- as it is a togglable ability . This is his ace card for his Shikai, while powerful it can be improved upon something which is showcased in his perfected or final form bankai as others call it.
Semper Invictus Armatus: The resolved armor has evolved. That is the simplest way to put it, from its first incarnation which took his utter focus to use and at the time was rather powerful. But it has since outgrown that former purpose, now Hayden requires much more out of it with his own shift in purpose and strength. The first and foremost thing that has improved is the damage in which this armor can receive, along with what it can defend with. This armor was once able to stand a singular large scale nuclear blast with Hayden somewhat alright, nowadays this armor can withstand the force of multiple nuclear level attacks with ease; augmenting his defenses to that of someone who can content with some of the strongest fighters in the world; such as Radioactive among others. When this armor receives damage a special process ensues in which the force and energy transferred into the armor from the attack is broken down, taking energy from the armor in the process, and protects Hayden while also keeping his stamina and personal energy reserves replenished. The important part of this is the attack makes contact with the armor, for instance if Hayden erected a barrier in front of him he would not receive the benefits of the armor being hit- as well if he loses a complete piece of armor and he is attacked there he receives normal damage as if he was unarmored. Now, the second ability Hayden has gained from his armor developed rather later just as his ‘Separation of Creation’ manifested in his need of ways to counteract much stronger beings. This ability is simply referred to a ‘Constanity’ which in short he is anchored to ‘creation’ and this universe. If someone had an ability to remove someone existence or attack/alter them that existence in any capacity he would have a way to both physically and ethereal defend against it. That’s not to say he cannot die but he simply cannot be wiped or destroyed from existence; what some way refer to as true death granting him a small edge on quincies and those who seek to bring that fate upon him. The final function of this armor is the offensive function, releasing the mental restrictions of the mind to allow Hayden to fully utilize his strength and speed to drastic portions; it should be noted that while he can make much more powerful strikes and punch harder this will gradually wear his body down. Especially if he is not taking the time to allow his body to rest or adjust; if an opportunity is afforded.
II Ryodan Ianiatus: Better known as ‘Ryodan Gear Two’ this attack was developed by Hayden to fully utilize his attack power and the tools at his disposal. While all the movements are the same as Ryodan, he add his own flare by empowering his blade with death matter in order to create multiple miniature explosions to propel the blade forward. However for maximum damage one more explosion happens at the point of contact in order to cause additional damage to the enemy.
In general this attack can be a bit more taxing as the energy demand can vary depending on how much energy is condensed into each explosion. Thus it makes for a good surprise for when enemy expect the same attack, making it even more of a behemoth to deal with.
