Tenmarin (天魔輪, Heavenly Demon Wheel)
Elyss’ Zanpakuto, Tenmarin, grants her the ability to grow in strength by sacrificing her health and mental stability. This process is done through three steps, phases as Elyss thinks of them, where Tenmarin gives Elyss the choice to either stay as she is or step into the unknown for a chance to prevail in battle.
The first phase of Tenmarin’s ability is not actually an ability, but is a technique that was taught to Elyss to condition her body for the next two phases. It is simply a form of meditation that unlocks Elyss’ latent strength. The brain actively inhibits a person’s body from using 100% of their strength in any situation with reasoning that the body can not handle its own strength and would break itself. This is when adrenaline comes into play in dire situations that activate the flight or fight response which causes a person’s body to feel a sudden spike in energy which is known to cause them to enact miracles and feel little pain. The meditation that Elyss goes through disables the brain’s ability to accurately limit how much she strains her body enabling her body to perform more efficiently than it should. The immediate effect of this is to increase Elyss’ speed and strength by 10% and allows her to be more tolerant to pain and damage but does not actually increase her durability.
The meditation requires Elyss to concentrate for one full post to change the way her brain works for that time, and she is able to switch it back at anytime, but her muscles will feel more tired than normal from overexertion.
Power before thought:
The second phase of Tenmarin’s ability. This phase is where Elyss’ mind starts to get affected by her Zankapakuto’s influence. After switching off her brain’s ability to control how she exerts her body, she is able to force her heartbeat forcing it to pump faster which, in turn, increases the blood output and oxygen being delivered to her muscles warming them and strengthening them by another 15%, but this is only part of this ability’s effect on her body. The blood being pumped through her body excessively carries special adrenaline in each blood cell. This adrenaline is filled with Reiryoku that Tenmarin shares with Elyss. However, due to the excess and warmth of Elyss’ body as she transitions to this phase, the blood pumping through her starts to burn leaking from her body in the form of vapors and changes her skin a slight tint of red. This burning Reiryoku acts as a shield for Elyss as it exudes from her body providing her with a strong barrier around her person that mimics 50% of her natural durability.
This phase requires Elyss to spend at least two to three posts in the first phase to prepare her body for the next transition. Also, the strain on her body begins to wear on her mind as well causing her to react more aggressively to things around her, but she still has control over herself to not be a threat to others.
The final phase of her Sealed Power that can only be activated after being in the second phase for up to two posts. In this phase, Tenmarin completely cuts off any inhibition in Elyss’ mind to allow her to fight at her maximum potential. By giving up her mind and forcing the Reiryoku leaving her body back inside of her, Tenmarin grants her the ability to fight at her true potential at a 100% efficiency boost to both her speed and strength. Of course, this pushes her body way beyond what it can handle, and she can only last in this form for 5 posts before her body literally shuts off on her.
However, due to the mentality of Tenmarin and his antagonistic nature to Elyss, he does more than shutting off her brain’s limiters. He also shuts off her ability to decipher her own morals and tell who is friend and foe. The reasoning for this is that, Tenmarin desires for Elyss to give in to her inner desires that she suppress which is to fight strong opponents and come out on top. He shuts off her ability to stop fighting for these five posts to allow her to attack everything as she always desired to do turning her into a berserking warrior for the time limit until she is knocked unconscious, killed, or pushes her body too far. After the five posts are up, she passes out and her body is left extremely frail and susceptible to all forms of damage due to straining and tearing her muscles» Why:
After so long of working tirelessly to grow stronger and figure out herself, Elyss has finally made progress by discovering her Zanpakuto’s true name. Though, the discovery of its name caused her soul to react strangely to the foreign entity that was Mirja’s soul. This caused them to fuse mixing Mirja’s Fury Stacks with Elyss’ Zanpakuto ability creating something new for Elyss to learn and deal with. http://www.platinumhearts.net/t20869-a-stranger-to-yourself-elyss-solo» Extra:
