Reina's hole announcing her as a Hollow is located in her stomach, where her navel would normally be found. This signifies her endless hunger, and the appetite that lead her back down the path of Hollowfication. She has no traditional mask, as a Hollow, or estigma, as an Arrancar, but rather is covered in a black and red chitin across various parts of her body.
She is 6' 2".
Reina is hunger, domination and a self-serving attitude distilled down to their purest forms. It is not only easy for her to take the lead in a group, but her very being commands that she do so and detests the idea of being ruled over by another. She is extremely proud, selfish and thinks predominantly of herself and her own needs before those of others. She simply takes that which she desires and makes it her own, whether that something be an individual, property or blood.
She believes and lives by the creed that strength is what writes the morals of the world. The strong are so by birthright, and those without are only as good as tools or sustenance for those with. Strength may come in many forms, whether physical or monetary, measured in land or command; no matter the source, it simply is.
She is ruthless, and more than glad to make an example of one who displeases her by consuming them. At these moments, her sadistic tendencies shine for all to see, and she gleefully revels in them. When the opportunity to land a killing blow on her opponent presents itself, she may decide instead to prolong the fight to make them suffer just a little more.
Underneath the pride, passion and resolve, however, Reina can be cowardly. She holds no qualms about a fair fight, but only sees the paths to victory which she might take. She does not live to fight another day, but rather, she fights to live to enjoy the next day. Life is cruel and unforgiving, and if one is not the same, then it will take every inch that it is allowed.
Numerous betrayals throughout her many lives and the very circumstance of her birth have deeply rooted an acute paranoia within her mind. She finds it difficult to truly trust another, or to open up to them.
She is highly protective of that which she has deemed to be her property. Whether an individual she is fond of, a lover or a comrade in arms, she responds to threats towards their well-being with anger and violence. It's times like these that she may forget her own cowardice, in favor of defending her own.
Reina can be short sighted, and prefers to live in the moment and enjoy herself than to dwell too much on the future. She likes to be around others, and can be quite social in the right mood, though she does have a deep appreciation for quiet and intimate moments, as well.
She has retained her fondness for romantic literature and confectionery, as well as her distaste for still and dead forms of art, such as paintings and sculptures. She is quite easily swayed by music and other emotional forms of performance.
Reina has lived under many names in her lifetimes: Lord Adán. Skitterer. Arácnida. However, to most throughout her time, she was simply Abigaíl.

IV. Natural Abilities» Alert:
Eight hundred years living as a Hollow or in the Zaraki district have left Reina naturally wary of her surroundings. She is quick to react to the slightest stimuli, and always prepared for an ambush.» Poise:
Reina possesses an impeccable poise and sense of balance. She is an adept climber, and very light on her feet.» Speed:
Reina is swift and nimble, and used to making quick attacks with precision. While her bursts of speed are exceptional, she is less capable using such speeds over long periods of time.» Swordsmanship:
In addition to her supernatural powers, Reina is a deadly combatant with a single-handed blade, and favors strikes to the head, body and arms, in particular. These habits tend to bleed into her use of other attacks, including unarmed combat.
V. Racial Techniques, Abilities & Skills» Bala de Veneno:
Bala charged with Reina's corrosive energy. Rather than a concussive impact, these projectiles deliver her Acidic Touch at range and high speeds. This ability consumes more energy than a standard Bala.» la Estocada:
A preternaturally swift thrust with the blade that extends half as far beyond Reina's usual reach. The attack itself is twice as fast and powerful as normal, but leaves her open to counterattack as she recovers afterward.
During Resurrección, Reina may perform this skill with her extra limbs, without the increase in range.» Mordedura de Araña:
Reina coats her zanpakutō in a strong corrosive energy, increasing the sword's cutting power by an amount relative to the potency of her Acidic Touch and leaving wounds that ache and burn severely. At an Adept level of Acidic Touch, her sword's cutting power is increased by 20%. For every skill level higher, the effect is increased by another 10%.
During Resurrección, this same trait applies to her extra limbs.» Sonido:
Reina's instinctive skill with high speed movements extends to and beyond her use of the Shinigami's Flash Step. As a Hollow, she is capable of performing Sonido at the same level of skill as Hoho.» Subida:
Playing to her strengths as a natural climber, Reina utilizes smaller platforms than usual for the purpose of flight. She may stand on or hold to these platforms with her hands, giving the impression of climbing or crawling up sheer surfaces.» Veneno Cero:
Cero charged with Reina's corrosive energy. These blasts leave a lasting trace of highly acidic residue, which continues to damage and burn the target for two posts per level of Acidic Touch above Beginner. This secondary damage is relative to her Acidic Touch. This ability consumes more energy than a standard Cero.
VI. Powers » Hollow Power:
Reina possesses a powerful bite akin to a spider that delivers her Acidic Touch at its full potency. An individual can be affected by a single unique bite at a time, and a new one overwrites the old.» Mordida de Veneno, Consumir:
Reina's bite inflicts a wound with terrible acidic energies that infects the body and breaks it down from within. The potency and longevity of this effect increases with her overall power: the target's durability (and similar physical defenses) is reduced by 10% for two posts at tier 3, by 20% and four posts at tier 2-5, 30% and six posts at tier 2-2, 40% and eight posts at tier 1-5, 50% and ten posts at tier 1-3, 60% and twelve posts at tier 1-1, and finally 75% and fifteen posts at tier 0.» Mordida de Veneno, Reprimir:
Reina's bite inflicts a wound with persistent acidic energies that infects the body and inhibits its ability to self repair. The potency and longevity of this effect increases with her overall power: the target's Regeneration skill (and similar healing abilities) is nullified for two posts if at Beginner level or below at tier 3, at Adept level at tier 2-3, at Advanced level at tier 2-1, at Elite level at tier 1-3, and finally at Master level at tier 1-1. The duration of this effect is increased by two posts for every level the target's Regeneration is below Reina's current limit.
VII. Resurrección » Resurrección Name:
Matriarcha del Arácnida » Resurrección Release Phrase:
N/A » Resurrección Release Actions:
Reina consumes her zanpakutō. » Resurrección Appearance:
Reina sprouts four long, black, powerful limbs akin to that of a spider from the middle of her back. These limbs move with the same speed, power and ease as her arms and legs. The final segment of each limb is lined with a row of sharp teeth, allowing for their use as cutting weapons. » Resurrección Abilities:
In Resurrección, Reina awakens to the full scope of her powers as a Hollow, and twists the nature of her zanpakutō to match.» Extra Limbs:
The four limbs that sprout from Reina's back during Resurrección are four feet in length, and as fast and strong as her arms and legs. The inside of the final segment of each limb is adorned with a row of sharp teeth, allowing for its use as a cutting weapon. The carapace that covers each limb is as hard as Hierro, and grows more durable with Reina's overall level of power: a Beginner Hierro at tier 2-5, Adept at tier 2-2, Advanced at tier 1-5, Elite at tier 1-2, and finally Master at tier 0-5. This carapace cannot be made harder through focus.» Web de Arácnidas:
By activating shikai or bankai from within her Resurrección, Reina gains access to all the abilities thereof. Abilities and techniques that would normally require the use of her zanpakutō instead substitute her extra limbs. Such forms are subject to the same constraints as from without Resurrección, including time, and their use may result in the loss of this higher form at a crucial moment.
---» Alambre Ácido:
The threads spun by Reina through her shikai and bankai are coated in her acidic energy. Any person or object that comes into contact with the thread is damaged as though by her Acidic Touch.
VIII. Zanpakutō » Zanpakutō Name:
Araña » Sealed Zanpakutō Appearance:
Araña appears as an espada ropera, or rapier. The blade is long and thin, and largely silver in color, leading back to a flared, white guard with a singular, thin bar that fits over the hand. The handle itself is comprised of black segments overlaying smaller strips of parallel white bars. The blade is sharpened for three-quarters its length. » Sealed Zanpakutō Powers:
Araña possesses a strong adhesive force that is controlled mentally by Reina. When in her hands, the sword cannot be forcibly removed from her grip against her will, nor from anything that the blade might touch. This trait does not extend to other objects or people, however.
IX. Shikai » Shikai Release Phrase:
"Weave!" » Shikai Release Actions:
Reina releases Araña with a quick flourish, twirling the blade in a showy fashion as it changes form. » Shikai Appearance:
Araña becomes much more elaborate and intricate in its design in shikai. The guard expands outward and takes on a motif akin to a spider's closed legs, adopting a basket-hilt style. Two short prongs appears at the blade's tip, with no clear purpose at a glance. » Shikai Abilities:
In shikai, Araña discharges a fine, strong thread from the tip of the blade that adheres to anything the weapon may come into contact with, save for Reina herself. This thread has a durability relative to Reina's overall level of power: Beginner at tier 3, Adept at tier 2-5, Advanced at tier 2-2, Elite at tier 1-4, and Master at tier 1-1.» Bala de Teleraña:
Reina contains the power of her shikai within a Bala that is fired towards her target. Upon impact or at her behest, the projectile explodes into a rapidly expanding sheet of adhesive, akin to a cobweb. The speed at which this web expands is comparable to the speed of the Bala.» Explorador Web:
By discharging multiple threads as light as the air, Reina lays her web over a radius of up to one mile. She may detect the location of any person or object, and their movement within this radius via the changes in vibrations through the threads as they drift. This ability takes one post to perform and can be prolonged through focus, but ends when Araña is moved suddenly or forcefully enough to engage in combat.» Web de Anclaje:
With swift handling of her shikai, Reina uses Araña's thread to attach two points to one another. She must be able to make contact with both points without moving.
