Name: Vandesdelca Musto Fende Iramasha (ヴァンデスデルカ・ムスト・フェンデ Vandesuderuka Musuto Fende); His name means The One Who Would Seize Glory (栄光を掴む者 Eikou wo Tsukamusha)
Alias: Master Van (As he is known to his students and even many other Iramasha), Holy Father, Master of Limitless Possibilities (Due to his Omni Energy abilities, etc), Heavenly Shield (for all of those lives he put above his own and protected them to the death)
Age: Estimated to be between 7000 years old and 8000 years old, though he has said he predates even that age, meaning he could be anywhere from 7000 to even 9000 years old. (There are very few that know this, but Vandesdelca is actually old enough to have fought in the Angel-Demon war, making him 10,000+) Because of his immortality as an Iramasha, his age can't be deduced from his appearance like it can be for humans and even Shinigami, as he appears to be in his late 30's to mid 40's.
Gender: Definitely Male
Height: 6'3" - He is a rather tall man, easily being taller than average at 6'3". His tall stature might normally make him seem imposing and scary, but in reality, he appears as kind and friendly as he would if he were shorter thanks to his body language and just the way he acts overall.
Weight: 188 - Due to Van's height, he weighs a good amount compared to other Iramasha. A big part of his weight is his muscle, something that just packed on the pounds.
Eye Color: Blue
Hair Color: Brown
Description of Appearance:
- Body Language: Vandesdelca Iramasha is a man of both stature and royalty, and appears that way as well. He stands tall, and keeps great posture, though he certainly doesn't appear to be stiff. When he is with the other leader's of the Iramasha, he tends to appear to be more relaxed as he treats them like family, than when he is with other people not of the Iramasha clan. In the midst of angels, his body tells a different story. You can tell he is kind to even his enemies just from the way he holds himself when speaking to them. Even in the middle of a fight he doesn't show malice through his body language.
- Body Type: Van's body type is relatively medium. He isn't very small like some other's are, what with his broad shoulders and muscle mass, though he certainly isn't a giant, as he is thin and (somewhat) lean and wiry. He has a good amount of visible muscle on his body, as well as muscle that isn't so visible. If you got anything out of this, remember this: He's medium, but certainly not weak. Despite his only moderate body type, strength is a huge asset to him when in combat.
- Hair and Facial Hair: With brown hair, one might be surprised that he is an Angel Iramasha, as this color deviates from the norm somewhat. His head hair is quicte long, being long enough to cover his entire face when let down, and reaches to below his shoulders. However, he prefers to wear his hair up in a ponytail in a similar way to samurai (except not a knot). He has sideburns that reach below his ears and stretch onto his cheeks somewhat. His only facial hair besides his sideburns would be the chin hair that he grew out. It is about two inches long and ends in a pointed tip, and his brown just like his other hair. Van's eyebrows are sharp, yet ragged. They are the same shade of brown as the rest of his hair.
- Eyes: Vandesdelca has deep blue eyes. Other's have said that his eye's are the most beautiful ones they have ever seen, though this isn't a large surprise since he is an Angel Iramasha who are sometimes known for their beauty. A large part of what makes his eyes appear the way they do is the way he is looking at you. While he can appear to be calm, his gaze can also become murderous (though this doesn't usually happen unless he see's another Angel die). However, he usually appears gentle and serene, certainly not angry or violent.
- Clothing: As technical royalty, Van's garb is extremely well-made, elegant, and deserving of someone of his position. Over everything else he wears, Van is usually seen in his classic overcoat similar to what some clergy have worn before. It i very long, reaching all the way down to his ankles. In both the back and front it splits down the center. The shoulder area's add to its magnificence, as does the brilliant yellowish-gold on the design. The jacket-like piece of clothing also has a two-inch black collar. Underneath that, he wears a gray long sleeve overshirt that stretches down to almost his knees. The shirt is outlined by black, and has a gold diamond on either bicep, and also has split cuffs. His pants are all white and are tucked into his boots. His boots are plated around the foot with black and light gray steel. Underneath his overshirt he has on a simple white tunic.
Above all else, Vandesdelca is an extremely kind man, and is probably one of the most kind Iramasha to date. This specific trait can be considered a side effect from Van being an Angel Iramasha, but he says he is just innately kind, and would be if he were a Demon Iramasha or Hybrid Iramasha. In many ways Van can show his kindness, and in many ways he does. When someone is injured, his first thought is to protect them and heal them. He is willing to negotiate with enemies instead of fighting, meaning he is a good diplomat when it comes to preventing and stopping war/combat. Throughout a period of many thousands of years, Vandesdelca was on Earth performing miracles and helping those who needed it, proof of his kind heart.
Another important trait of Van is his parental attitude towards other people (especially Iramasha). In part it's because of his ancient age, but another part of it is how he has developed into a messiah-like Angel Iramasha. He tends to treat others as though they are his children, or more likely, that he is their father. He does not mean this in a patronizing way, and doesn't look down on others because he sees them as his children. He often calls others "My son" or "My daughter" or "My child", though he isn't really their father. If he see's a fellow Iramasha attacked, injured, or especially killed, he can become angered and retaliate with all of his power, as it would be like a father losing a child. This is in stark contrast to his usually kind and calm self.
Being a holy man himself, he holds faith pretty high among his priorities and what he pictures as others priorities. Because of this, he mainly works with churches on Earth when it comes to miracles, but will gladly help others. He places his faith in the Spirit King and believes as long as the Spirit King is there, he is more than sure that everything will be alright (however, he is a realist and understands sometimes the Spirit King can't help, and will take matters into his own hands to make sure people don't get hurt and also make sure the greater good is the top priority). Vandesdelca can often be seen communicating with the Spirit King telepathically in the form of prayer, adding to his holy man persona.
Vandesdelca is a man with a strong sense of right and wrong, mainly due to being an Angel Iramasha, and as such acts with the greater good always in mind. Due to understanding that sometimes acting for the greater good is more important than acting for each every individual, he is willing to make tough choices, such as saving millions but losing hundreds or thousands. He is willing to die for others, even if they are just common soldiers or even sometimes enemies, and will fight in the stead of others as well. This has lead to the nickname "Heavenly Shield" being applied to Van, something he is actually rather proud of.
However, another big trait of Van's is his constant need to keep things lively in the Iramasha homeland any way he can. Yes, this means he'll do whatever it takes. One such thing is pulling pranks. Despite his seemingly angelic attitude towards everything, if he get's the chance to screw around with somebody (especially Ketsu; he thinks he is always angry, so he tries to "cheer him up" by messing with him as much as possible), he will take that chance. He has actually become relatively hated by some of the Demon's while other Angel Iramasha tend to find him humorous and entertaining.
When going through his various Angel forms, Vandesdelca persona tends to transform from a rather light-hearted personality to a deeply menacing and serious one, a rather steep change as the moment he uses his Angelic Release, he becomes a much more serious person as a whole, and concentrates more on protecting his allies and himself than anything else, completely removing the prankster part of his personality. With his newfound seriousness, he isn't one to take enemies lightly. If he is fighting in his base Angel state, he won't really be all that serious; not that he won't take the fight seriously, he just won't go all out and attempt to vanquish his opponent(s) like he would in his later forms.
He is an extremely calm man, never overreacting to various stimuli, and never really getting angry (the exceptions have been listed above). He is easy to get along with, and just as easy to talk to. Van has repeatedly told other Iramasha that if they ever need someone to talk to, they can always come to him. Possessing charm and wits, Van is very good at cheering people up as well (the way he cheers Ketsu up has been listed above).
Van is a highly intelligent man, even though sometimes he may not seem like it because he likes to goof off and pull pranks on people. Throughout the years of his life, he has a collected a vast amount of knowledge, as one of his favorite past times is reading books; it doesn't really matter what genre, he just likes reading (though it should be noted he almost vomited when he read the Twilight Sega, so perhaps he doesn't like shitty books). Another boon from his age is his wisdom. Van has become a very wise man, always knowing what to say and giving very helpful advice to those who ask for it. On numerous occasions when he had somehow gotten into trouble, he has made the 'right' choice, as in, he knew how to get out of that situation or fix it. He doesn't usually choose combat as the best choice; proof of this is when he fled to Heaven instead of fighting Ender's main forces in the physical worlds. Don't be fooled, this doesn't mean he is a coward. No, this just means he prefers to take the route that has the least amount of fighting in it, another reason that supports his claims of being a very peaceful man.
- Favorite Book: The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins (Ironic, eh?)
- Least Favorite Book: The Old/New Testaments (He knows the only god is the Soul King, and the bible makes him out to be a genocidal maniac)
- Favorite Hobby: Reading
- Favorite Food: Rice Balls
- Favorite Drink: Purified Water
Seishin Buki Name: Maikeru no ken (マイケルの剣 Michael's Sword, or Maikeru for short
Seishin Buki Appearance:
Vandesdelca's Seishin Buki usually takes the shape of a short sword he holds in a hilt on his left hip. It doesn't look all that special for a Seishin Buki, but it still has a special design. It's hilt is a light gray and is just long enough for him to hold the sword with one hand. It has a gen brown gem with yellow bands embedded in it's pommel, and another gem (this time yellow) embedded in the actual blade. The blade itself is mainly gray with the edges white along the entire sword. It emanates a a glowing white, making it shine constantly. When not in this form, Van tends to keep it looking like a pendant he wears around his neck. He has also been known to use his Seishin Buki as both a short sword and a shield when fighting someone in close quarters.
Seishin Buki Abilities:
Power and Durability: Maikeru is an extremely powerful Seishin Buki that can pack a serious punch in its strikes, as well as take a tremendous amount of damage. Due to the high amount of condensed energy inside Maikeru, the blade itself can withstand pretty much all punishment sent its way. A single swing can slice straight through buildings several football fields-worth of distance away, alluding to Van's own physical strength as well. With the increased power Maikeru gains when Van covers it in Holy energy, it's no wonder its considered to be one of the toughest swords in existence. Compared to released Zanpakutō, Maikeru is comparatively even more durable than those.
Holy Fire: The innate ability of Maikeru is control over pure-white flames that are, in essence, much hotter than normal fire. The molecules move so rapidly that the kinetic energy is through the roof compared to average fire or energy-enhanced fire, meaning the Holy Fire possesses an 'explosive property', as in things hit by it will not only suffer burns but will also be hit by the impact of an explosion as well. The temperature average can get much higher than 5000 degrees Fahrenheit rather easily. Van has easy manipulation over this fire as he's been using Maikeru for millennia, being able to control it the way he imagines it. He can generate a pretty-much infinite amount of this white-hot holy fire from Maikeru, a testament to his control over it. To clarify, this means over an extended period of time: its not that he can create this much fire at once, its that he doesn't usually run out of he generates the fire over a long period of time, and thus while he can create a lot at once, he can't create enough to bury an entire city at one time. It also has increased damage to demons (not demon Iramasha, but actual demons), as it is holy fire and demons are naturally evil/dark creatures. By covering Maikeru in this Holy Fire, he can increase the Seishin Buki's overall damage output. When he strikes things with normal metal or non-Zanpakutō level ice on them, he can melt both with one strike, but stronger ice and metals are clearly more difficult to damage. By slashing the air, he can create blasts of Holy Fire similar to the way Ichigo Kurosaki creates waves of energy with his Getsuga Tensho ability. Due to this being the most basic attack of Maikeru, and the fact that he is Holy-aligned, he can create a large amount of this fire without spending much energy but if he does this long enough it can become exhausting. Its said Vandesdelca possesses control over the most powerful Holy Fire in existence.
Wisdom, Experience, Knowledge, and Intelligence: As stated in his personality, Van is a very wise man, partly due to the high amount of years he has spent living, and also because of his innate personality to be very good when it comes to giving advice. Also, as an Angel Iramasha, he has a natural affinity towards deducing the inner nature of those around him. Along with gaining a vast ocean of knowledge throughout his long life, Van has also accumulated quite a bit of experience from his various ventures. During World War II, he was in Europe, helping wandering souls make it to Soul Society. This is when he truly experienced the pain war can cause, forcing him to realize there was no good reason for combat and killing. He has experienced the pure destructive force of Touketsu, Ender, and Kin Iramasha as well. When he isn't busy, Van will read books from his humongous library consisting of over 10,000 books of various genres and origins.
High Spiritual Power: Throughout the years, Van has accumulated a large amount of energy and has become rather powerful by the present date, especially compared to some other Iramasha. He is strong enough to be the Leader of the Angel Iramasha, as he has surpassed the strength's of his foe's and others in the Iramasha clan. By advancing so far as an Angel Iramasha, Vandesdelca is able to concentrate a large amount of spiritual energy and store it inside himself, something he has been doing for over multiple millennia. He has reached heights in power someone like Halo Iramasha would understand and respect. Also, with his extra energy reserves he has obtained by achieving his various forms, he can keep fighting for days on end without showing any signs of exhaustion or tiring.
Physical Prowess: Although Van is primarily an energy-based fighter, when he fights physically, he hits hard. He gives up specializations in speed and mobility for pure power, and can unleash bone-crushing blows with Maikeru. He has trained himself to not only be extremely strong, but also pretty enduring as well. He can not only give damage, but also take a considerable amount from his enemies too. He has demonstrated his strength on multiple occasions, mainly when he was doing miracles on Earth, such as saving people from crashes, and even moving entire cruise liners so they wouldn't crash into an iceberg or something similar to that type of situation. During the original war between Angels and Demons, Vandesdelca was able to defeat basic soldiers in single swings with his Seishin Buki, but his strengths were never tested against the extremely powerful Demons of the time. Nowadays he is said to possess physical strength that puts even Gotei Captains to shame, being able to crush steel with his bare hands. Granted people like Radioactive are clearly able to overpower him to a certain degree.
Healing Abilities: A big part of Van's arsenal of abilities is not even his offensive capabilities; no, it's his healing powers. Due to being an Angel Iramasha, he has a natural affinity to healing techniques. Vandesdelca's Holy energy can be applied to a wounded person's injuries in order to help bring them back to tip top, combat-ready shape. The energy can heal minor wounds extremely quickly and effectively without using up too much of Van's own energy reserves. Though Van can heal much larger injuries, including reconnecting limbs, that is when the strain will begin to show on his body. Potentially fatal injuries not only take a chunk of his energy in order to be healed, but they also take quite some time to be restored to their normal shape. When Van heals someone, he usually places his hands above the wound in question with his palms facing down and continuously channels Holy energy into the injury, meaning larger wounds take longer to heal and thus more energy as well.
Blade Skill: Through years and years of hardwork and training, Van has become an extremely formidable foe with his Seishin Buki and short swords in general. While he mainly uses energy attacks in battle, he is very skillful with a blade. He can fight on par with those of equal strength that are as skilled with blades as he is as well, and can even go on the offensive with his sword, though thwt's because he is an aggressive fighter with his Seishin Buki, preferring to end fights in as few strikes as possible. A big part of his fighting style with his sword, is using Maikeru to bash and destroy with his own tremendous physical strength; he is not a swift sword fighter. Instead, he prefers to land heavy blows on opponents. Van uses the kenjutsu method of combat, focusing on fighting after his sword is already drawn instead of the actual drawing of the weapon from it's scabbard.
Ranmyaku Blast: This is the Iramasha's own version of the cero. It is a blast of angelic chaos energy that is gathered from inside of their body and shot out in a massive wave or sphere. When used in a wave, it's faster, but not as strong. When used as a sphere, it is much stronger, but slower. Due to his enormous amounts of energy, Van's Ranmyaku Blast is rather powerful. His is white and glows brilliantly. He can channel various energies into his Ranmyaku blast to make it evens stronger and increase it's side effects.
Chaos Warp: When this technique is activated it allows Van to teleport from long range distances along with being able to warp anywhere as long he can sense someones spiritual pressure or reiatsu. Advanced and master's like Van can also teleport through dimension's and create pathway's to other world's. Adept can do it, but it takes much longer and drains them. However, Chaos Warp is not just limited to that. It can also be used for teleporting things and other beings. It starts by firing a burst of Chaos Energy from either your finger tips, palm's or anywhere else you can think of in your body. Then you can create it in any shape or form you want and try to have it attach itself to the thing you want to teleport. For objects, it's almost instant to teleport. However, to move massive land masses and things along those lines it would take a bit more time. Van glows white when he Chaos Warps.
Omni Energy: Due to Van's peculiar relationship to Holy energy, he has adapted his own form of it to use in higher doses than normal. Using this is the primary way Van fights, and is energy-based (though not in the normal sense). Omni energy isnt just any normal energy, no, it's much different than that. This is actually why he has gotten so far and has such an advantage over those he fights. Omni Energy isn't made up of Chaos Energy (though Van can convert Chaos Energy into Omni Energy), it's made up of Absolute Particles. Absolute Particles cannot be altered by any means nor can they be controlled by anyone who was not born with the ability to use them (like Van was). They also innately possess every single element known, as well as gravitational powers, light power, dark power, etc, giving them the power of almost every non-person specific energy/ability type (except for poison, no poison involved). While the Absolute Particles cannot be altered by anything, they themselves alter the Omni Energy by influencing not only the type of energy/attack, but also its specific attributes. With the masterful control gained over millennia Van possesses over it, he can add in multiple attributes, such as fire that freezes and shocks, and water that burns and freezes (without actually changing form to ice). His manipulation and control of his Omni Energy is even higher than his use of Light energy. Vandesdelca is so skilled with Omni Energy, he can use Omni Energy to manipulate his own body on a cellular level. By changing his form into that of a different energy, he can essentially "become" a form of energy or element, such as turning his physical body into pure fire so a punch would go right through him, or changing his body into water so he can move his body if its stabbed, or even turn his body into stone or other minerals to handle high amounts of pressure. While on the energy part of this, he can morph his body into a mass of, say, extremely volatile energy capable of causing explosions just by contact; Van is a master of limitless possibilities, and this add's onto that concept. In higher forms, Vandesdelca can even change his body into multiple elements at once. An example would be changing his right arm into fire, and his left arm into wind to perhaps enhance the power of the fire he can create.
Holy Aura: Due to Van's level of Angelhood, he has begun to generate a Holy Aura at all times. This Aura is white and makes him appear to be an actual biblical angel. While making him look slightly differently, it's real effect is much different. Just by being near angry or upset people, he can begin to calm them down due to his angelic aura that radiates from his body, causing a soothing effect in those near him. While this can stop those in battle from going crazy with bloodlust, it isn't strong enough (except for maybe weak opponents) to stop fights that have already begun, though it might be used to prevent one. He can increase the power of his Aura with his immense amount of Holy Energy even further.
Light Control: As an Angel Iramasha, Van has a natural affinity for light. However, with all of the miracles he has performed and his growth as an Angel (including the use of his unlocked forms), he has gained total control over the element of light. Whether it be natural light or artificial light, it lies in the domain of Vandesdelca to be controlled. He can even generate physical weapons made of light particles that can slice through objects as though it's a solid blade, and because of the speed of light particles, a tremendous amount of kinetic energy is generated as well, which can cause burns and scorch objects, etc. He can erect barriers made of light as well, and pretty much use light for almost any purpose. In his words "The world is my canvas...and light is my paintbrush." Basically, he has learned to alter light in such a way that when he thinks of something, he can make it out of light, though when he says things like this he means weapons and barriers, not things like buildings or anything extremely complex. By generating light, he can still fight with it in extremely dark places and can even override opponents' abilities that cancel light. Van can completely remove all light from any given area, which could have a few side effects. One thing he could do after that is make it extremely bright in said area to blind the person on a high level, giving himself an advantage.
Gift from the Soul King: Millenia ago, the great Soul King himself had a visitor named Vandesdelca. Yes, this Vandesdelca. He had been summoned before the Soul King because of a situation going on in the other realms, and a dire situation at that. The Soul king granted new power to the Angel Iramasha before him, giving him a gift of energy and raw power alike, as well as also providing a strong connection to the Soul King, which would act as a gateway between the two to empower Van even further. This is what provides him with Holy Energy out of his Divine Ascension state, as well as a reason Van is so powerful in general (Other than being one of the original Angels, having trained for thousands of years, and his other natural talents, of course).
Boon of the Heavens: Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Holy Father Iramasha had to spend many a century in the realm of Heaven, where the Soul King and his closest followers resided. Due to the prolonged exposure to Heaven and the Holy Energies inside the realm, Van became even more powerful, as well as growing his connection to the Heavens and becoming a pure Angel of Heaven, granting him a bonus in energy reserves, Spiritual Power, and just overall making him stronger. With this direct connection to Heaven, Vandesdelca is able to draw on energy directly from the Soul King's realm itself in order to fuel his magic. Also, when other Angels are in the vicinity, they can connect to Heaven through Van. The connection also means he is stronger overall in places like the Soul King's realm.
Angelic Release Appearance: While no major appearance changes occur, he does begin to glow even more with a radiant white aura, making him appear even more angelic. Though, maybe its the large, angelic, wings that make him appear more holy. His Angelic wings are large, covered in white feathers, and radiate bright light. The white-hot holy fire generated by Maikeru can now be seen on his clothing when he goes into this form. The very edges of his clothes tend to have at least a small amount of this fire on them, making the area directly around him very hot. He has a sense of divinity in this form, staying true to his angelic roots.
Angelic Release Abilities:
Increased Holy Fire Control: While in his Angelic Release form, Van has even more control over the fire created by his Seishin Buki Maikeru. Not only can he increase the temperature to even higher levels, but he can also control it's movements and form much easier and on a higher level now. He can make creatures and people made of this holy fire. An example would be him making a large winged dragon of holy fire or even something smaller like a cheetah or lion, and control the 'creatures' very skillfully, using them to chase down foes and explode on contact, similar to Coyote Starrk's wolves. This heightened ability has the same downsides as it's weaker predecessor, the amount that can be created at once is limited to about the same size as Isshin Kurosaki's Getsuga Tensho, and the more he uses Holy Fire and manipulates it, the more taxing it is on his body and his energy supplies.
Heightened Light Control: In his Angelic Release mode, Vandesdelca notices an incredible increase to his overall control over the element of light, and an increase to the potential damage output associated with light attacks. With his increased control, Van is even more dangerous when using light in battle. Even though in his base form he has tremendous control over light energy, now he has an even higher level, which gives him access to something called Solar Flare, a combination of his use of Holy Fire and Light.
- Solar Flare: By combining his light energy control and his holy fire he can generate through use of Maikeru, he can create a massive blast of power that combines both the radiant energy of light (including its high kinetic energy potential) and the intense flames from Maikeru. This blast is extremely bright, able to blind spectators, as well as extremely, extremely, hot, as the particles move at insane speeds, increasing the overall heat used. This blast can be manipulated like a whip, with Maikeru used as the focal point for manipulation. The whip is 5o feet long and very powerful. The energy required to sustain this isn't much for Vandesdelca since he can manipulate light at high levels and has an insane amount of Holy Energy anyway, though this is only when first used: as he uses the whip, the amount of energy required to maintain it increases over time, and the larger the initial burst of energy the more is required.
Increased Physical Strength: Due to the increase in energy levels and power overall, Van also sees heightened physical strength levels as well. This is in addition to the normal 2x increase to physical strength he gets by using this form. Due to this being a main point of his fighting style, Van already has a high strength, however now he can cause even more damage with just a single punch. He can also put more power behind his sword strikes as well, rivaling that of people like Zaraki Kenpachi without his eyepatch on, being able to match him in a battle of sword-use. His strength can also be increased even further by infusing energy into his muscles, thus intensifying his strikes even further.
Mental Clarity: It is said when an Angel Iramasha ascends to his or her Angelic Release form, they experience a sense of clarity, as well as a sense of their surroundings above that of their base form. Van is no different. However, due to Van's power and length of time he's had this form, he has developed a keen sense of knowledge and mental clarity. Even though his mental state is stable while in his normal form, he has an increased sense of mental-based skills, such as deduction and pain resistance. Also, he can easily discern information concerning his surroundings and even other people he meets. If someone is a hybrid of multiple races, he can usually discern this, as well as their emotions and how they feel towards certain things. An example would be, if someone feels particular malice to someone, he can usually understand this thanks to his new senses.
Holy Energy: What is it that allows Van to keep fighting for days straight, combat enemies of very high levels of strength, and just power him in general? That's right boys and girl, its Holy Energy, the energy that can make Angel Iramasha so formidable in combat. Utilizing his direct link to both the Soul King and the heavens, the Holy Father Van can use an absolutely insane amount of Holy Energy unseen in Angel Iramasha thus far, as normally Angel Iramasha can't even use Holy energy until their Divine Ascension form, but thanks to the great connection to Heaven and the Soul King, Van has bypassed this simple restriction. He can channel Holy Energy directly from the Soul King's realm due to his millenia's worth of training there, and his pact with the Soul King himself. His Holy energy reserves are increased in his Angelic Release form because he can not only use more, but also because his Angel traits are heightened, giving him a larger connection to the realm of angels.
Awakened Divinity State Appearance:
Compared to his other forms, Van goes through yet another major appearance change, this time instead of changing clothes, he loses most of them. All of his clothes he was wearing previously disappear from his body, with only his pants being replaced by a new get-up. Instead of pants with intricate designs and greaves and the such, he simply wears white slacks that reach his ankles. He doesnt wear any footwear, instead he is barefoot. He also gains a new set of magnificent white wings, bringing the total amount of his beautiful angelic wings to four. His hair turns completely white, and extends to a length that brings the tips of his hair to his waist, however, his hair doesn't lie flat and is rather messy. A snow-white aura radiates from his body, even more so than his Angelic Release form.
Awakened Divinity State Abilities:
Increased Everything: This form doesn't really give Van any new powers, but it does increase his control of his elemental powers as well as increase the damage output of all of his abilities and element powers. His Holy Fire he makes with Maikeru increases its power, temperature, and even the amount of fire that can be generated increases due to the higher amount of Chaos Energy, Reiryoku, and Spiritual Energy coursing throughout his new body. He can increase the amount creation for all of his elements, essentially doubling the distance he can send said elements, as well as the amount of elements he can make is doubled. He can also rapidly switch between elements when using his Absolute Energy. His physical strength also increases by over 2.5x that of his previous level of power, same thing for his speed and endurance. He can stand even stronger attacks then he could in his Angelic Release state, letting him take much more punishment than normal as well as dealing out said punishment.
His mental clarity increases as well, allowing Van's clarity to affect those around him. He can influence the minds of others and can clear their thoughts or help them understand the truth and can even get rid of mental sickness. Combined with his Holy Aura, he can calm down even highly enraged enemies even in the midst of battle, giving him more of an angelic persona. While considered to be mental clarity, this can be used to restore energy of allies and even heal light to moderate injuries on their bodies thanks to Van's advanced level of power and control over his mental clarity. His understanding of his surroundings is also better while in this form, compared to his Angelic Release form, allowing him to deduce secret or hidden attributes in certain attacks, discover what certain things/materials/etc are made of just by looking at them, giving him an advantage over those who are unfamiliar with the terrain surrounding them as they fight.
Divine Right: This is the only new ability Van gains access to when he enters his Awakening Divinity form, though, arguably, the only one he would ever need in this form. Divine Right is a rather interesting ability, and can either be extremely weak, or extremely powerful and useful, depending on how it's used by Vandesdelca. Basically, he can manipulate pretty much everything around him to a high extent. To go more into detail, I'll describe a few things. This ability is based on his Absolute Energy, which he uses to change and control his surroundings. Say there is dirt on the ground. He can use that dirt to create entire skyscrapers made of steel. How does he do this, you ask? Since Absolute Energy can use any element, he takes it a step further to make it so he can use virtually any material known to him to chance the form of one material to another. Essentially, he can change one object to a different object of a different material as he sees fit. The larger the transformation, the more energy is required, however due to his massive reserves of energy already, he doesn't really need to worry about large transformations unless used in rapid succession. The major downside to this ability is he needs something to get started; basically, he needs a base. To create that building, he needs the dirt for the base. This doesn't mean he needs an entire buildings worth of dirt, but depending on the size of the building, he will need a relative amount of the dirt to begin with. He can't make the empire state building with a fistful of dirt. He could, but he would be so exhausted afterwards, he wouldn't be able to fight at all. If someone wanted to try and prevent Vandesdelca from manipulating a specific object or material, they would have to place barriers around it first as Van must break or shatter shielding around an object before attempting to manipulate it.
- Creation of 10, 000 Blades: As the name implies, this technique includes creating roughly ten thousand or more various weapons from the surrounding terrain and various objects around Vandesdelca. The more he uses, the more weapons hes able to make and use. The weapons can vary in size, but they are usually just thousands of swords, whether they are long or short swords doesn't really matter. After creating all of these swords, who's blades/etc are hardened and empowered by the energy that formed them, can be used for various purposes: Van could make a huge shield/wall of them to protect him, or he could launch them all at his enemy at once as a sort of "Hail Mary" all-out attack.
Divine Ascension Appearance:
In his final Angel form, Vandesdelca goes through another large appearance change, this time to something resembling the Angel of Death known throughout various Bronze Age myths that were so common 400 years previous to the current time in the Platinum Hearts universe. When he changes form, his four wings fuse into a new pair; he now has two gigantic and utterly magnificent angelic white wings attached to his back. He has a wing span of nearly 25 feet, making his wings much larger than they were previously. His entire body is draped in a a black hooded robe, with a cape just as dark as well. His hood completely hides his head and face, making that area appear to just be darkness. No light can be seen from his eyes like they could be in his Shadow Angel form, leaving his face pitch black and shadowed. His robe is covered in various runic symbols that allow him to channel his spells through to make them even stronger than normal, but that is besides the point. These runes are white and few and far between. His cape is rather large, covering not only him, but also a few more square feet. There are two separate parts that go off of his shoulders; one large one, and one short one (this is for both shoulders, aka, he has four in total), with the long ones extending a good foot and a half above his head while the short ones only end a few inches off of his shoulders, ending in a point. Van is also much taller in this form, growing about 2' 5", placing him at 8'6" (rather tall for a a being with a human-type body).
Seishin Buki: Maikeru goes through a major change when Van enters this form, and is now called Āchimaikeru, marking the difference between this form and the previous forms. Āchimaikeru is much longer than Maikeru, and also has a much simpler design. It has a long black hilt that connects to a relatively simple guard that ends in small crosses on either side of the guard. The blade is much longer than previously, about as long as a claymore instead of a short sword like Maikeru. While larger, the sword isn't much heavier than it previously was.
All Previous Abilities: While in his Divine Ascension form, Vandesdelca has access to the abilities of every single one of his previous forms, but to a much higher extent of power and control. This includes his powers from his Shadow Angel form, as this form is like a fusion of his Shadow Angel form and his Light Angelic forms, making him both light and dark in a sense. He can use both Holy Fire and Shadow Flare with Āchimaikeru, and can combine them to increase his total damage output. Throughout millenia of training, he has increased his control over his elemental abilities such as his Light and Darkness control, and gains another massive boost in power by using this form. By combining his opposite abilities and energies, he can double the strength of potential energy attacks. An example would be combining his Light and Dark energies to create something much more powerful than either separate.
Energy Absorption and Control: Going along with the basic perks for being in his Divine Ascension state, Van takes them to a whole new level. Instead of just being able to simply take in some energy from his surroundings and even some energy from his enemies, Van can absorb massive amounts of energy by converting various forms of energy given off by people and other beings into Holy and Sanguine energies. With this, Cero's and energy-type attacks have very low potential when used against Van, as he can convert a portion of the energy into energy he himself can use. This doesn't mean he can just go around absorbing all energy attacks that are used on him, it just means they aren't as effective on him as someone who doesn't have this innate skill. However, wasted energy (IE fire set to the surroundings) can be used freely by Van as it isn't specifically being manipulated by someone else that could interfere with his absorption and control over it.
Maximum Physical Potential: When he first gained this form, he experienced a massive boost to all of his physical attributes, multiplying their total level by about three. Now, he gains an extra two times boost just by entering into this form, increasing his strength to absolutely ridiculous levels unheard of in Angel Iramasha, as well as increasing his other attributes, including his speed, endurance, and durability to heightened levels too. His strength is now absolutely frightening, making a simple punch feel like the heavens are crashing down upon the receiving end, whether it be a person or the terrain around Van. His sword strikes can cause earthquakes should he somehow miss his opponent, crushing everything into the area and grinding rocks, stones, and even metals into dust. By channeling his Sanguine and Holy energies into his arms, he can unleash a mighty strength even higher than before, a strength so ridiculous he would make even the great Titans of Olympus shake in their boots.
Increased Energy Levels: By entering this form, Van makes a pact with the Soul King himself; a pact that he will not lose no matter what, and that he shall fight for the Heavens above, and in the name of the greater good. His connection that leads straight to the Soul King himself grows ever more powerful, increasing the flow of Holy Energy, Reiryoku, and Spiritual Energy to Van at a high rate, making him stronger than ever. His aura, which is his various energies radiating from his body, is enough to crush even strong opponents, but due to his innate calm and kind nature, he tries to control it around allies. However, since it is such a high amount of energy, there isn't much he can do when it comes to hiding his energy.
Ever since his meditation in Heaven and his meetings with the Soul King, Van has felt a major increase in his own Holy energy reserves that are not innately connected to either the Heavens or the Soul King. This is probably due to the constant radiation of Holy Energy in Heaven, and the Soul King bequeathing some power unto him, basically making him an official Angel of Heaven, something very few others get to experience.
Divine Right to Rule: Remember Van's Divine Right ability from his Awakened Divinity State? Yeah, well his Divine Right to Rule brings that just a bit farther. And when I say a bit, I mean bringing it to a whole new level, breaking the previous barriers associated with it. Now he can not only convert materials and objects into completely different materials and objects, but he can also convert them to energy. That's right, I said energy. By manipulating the very fabric of an objects existence, he can turn it into a type of energy, be it Chaos energy, Holy Energy, Reitsu, or even Sanguine energy; he can do it. This means the very terrain becomes a massive power source for Vandeselca, providing him with even more power than what he usually has, like his Holy energy from the Heavens and such. Using this, he can clear out entire landscapes by absorbing the objects and land and turning it all into energy to sustain himself. By combining his Omni Energy ability and Divine Right to Rule, he can essentially make a limitless supply of extra energy by forming earth/water/whatever element he wishes with Omni Energy, and then using Divine Right to Rule to turn the newly made terrain into a larger chunk of energy for his own use.
Rain of the Heavens: This is probably Vans most powerful ability out of all of his forms, and is in two different forms. One form is the Divine Ruination, while the other is Divine Renewal; one serves the purpose of destruction and damage while the other is more on the positive side, being mainly a healing ability. Both are incredibly powerful abilities, and can only be used sparingly because of the sheer amount of energy required to sustain them for very long. When performing either ability, Van becomes near invulnerable due to the massive amount of energy coursing through his body.
- Divine Ruination: This is the destructive form of the Rain of the Heavens ability Van has access to in his Divine Ascension form, and is very, very powerful. To start it, Van raises his sword to the sky, with the blade tip pointing towards the heavens; then, a beam of pure black sanguine energy rushes towards the sky, going farther than anyone can see, as well as being able to be seen from several miles away. When the beam reaches high enough, a gateway to Heaven opens up; no the type of gateway one can travel through, but the type of gateway that can allow energy to travel through. A ridiculous amount of Holy energy travels into Van, who immediately converts it into Sanguine energy, which then travels back into the sky; this whole process taking very few seconds at most. The sky slowly fills up with pitch black energy, shrouding everything in an eerie dark glow, covering miles worth of area in pitch black clouds. Then, it begins to rain. It starts out with a light drizzle, slowly speeding up and getting heavier until its like a monsoon. Except this isn't ordinary rain, no, this is pitch black rain made of highly volatile Sanguine energy that cannot be absorbed by anyone by any means. This rain is extremely dangerous, damaging everything hit by the rain; if barriers are erected to stop it, the rain destroys even some of the toughest barriers, and damages the landscape as well. Anything caught in the rain will be severely punished, as the rain itself is toxic, acting like an extremely powerful acid made of spiritual-based en energy. The reason why this ability must be used sparingly is because not only does it drain a rather large amount of energy from Van himself, but it also damages everyone in the vicinity, even allies, meaning it has friendly fire. Van, at his current level, can make it rain at a steady pace for quite awhile, despite the large amount of energy needed to keep it running.
- Divine Renewal: This is the positive, healing form of the Rain of the Heavens ability Van has access to in his Divine Ascension form, and is very, very powerful. This is pretty much the exact opposite of the Divine Ruination ability, in that instead of causing destruction, it heals everything in its path. After raising his sword to the sky, instead of a black beam of energy, a bright white Holy beam of energy rushes towards the heavens, cloaking the area around Van (about 10 square miles worth) in a bright white glow. Just like in Divine Ruination, massive amounts of Holy energy is sent through the Heavenly gateway, except instead of being converted to the dark Sanguin energy, it retains its Holiness. The sky becomes lit by the insane amount of Holy energy from the heavens, and then the rain begins; Instead of becoming a monsoon, the rain stays at a light drizzle, and instead of destroying everything it touches, something else happens instead. Not only is the landscape renewed, but plants begin to grow, turning what used to be dry and barren wastelands into lush forests and plains covered in greenery. This ability also grants healing to various people in the zone of its effect; people very damaged can become like new again when the rain touches their injuries. It is said this rain is similar to the mythical tears of phoenix's, as it heals whatever it touches. The effect is so great that even areas that cannot normally sustain life can become covered in plants and are able to sustain life afterwards. Like Divine Ruination, Van can sustain this ability for quite some time now.
Shadow Angel Appearance
As you can clearly see, while in his Shadow Angel form, Vandesdelca looks pretty much completely different, as well as.......much....darker. A major appearance change would be his wings; instead of the normally bright white, the wings and their feathers are now a pitch black and radiate dark energy instead of holy energy. His clothes go through a major change as well, with the main difference being his clothes are now mostly black instead of white. He now has a hood that covers his head, which has a golden yellow emblem on it that signifies his change. Above his torso clothes, Van wears 2 pitch black pauldrons that radiate an eerie blue energy from the stones embedded in the armor. His shirt is black as well, and is long-sleeved which extends to below his knees in a strip on his front and back. His shirt is an extreme v-kneck, with the bottom of the v ending in the middle of his lower torso. His sleeves are slightly longer than his arms, ending a little bit past his wrists. He has dark brown gloves on with pointed metal pieces that cover all ten of his fingers.
He wears a dark-colored belt that, similar to his pauldrons, has magical stones that radiate radiant blue energy. The belt's buckle is just slightly above his waste and has an intricate design chiseled into it. His pants are long and loose, and are black in color. He has on a pair of black greaves that are relatively simple in design, and go to just below his knees. Van's skin, hair, and other physical attributes also change while in this form. His skin goes from being a caucasian-tone to being much darker with a purplish tint to it. His hair (while staying at roughly the same length, if not a bit shorter) turns into a jetblack shade, while his facial hair disappears altogether. Van's eyes lose all color they once had and now glow an eerie crimson that seem to radiate color.
Shadow Angel Abilities:
Increased Physical Attributes: While in his Shadow Angel form, Van gets a boost to not only his strength, but his speed, durability, endurance, and his physical attributes overall. While his strength is usually very high, in this form it gets even higher, comparatively higher than his strength in his Awakened Divinity state. His speed also gets a big boost, making this form his go-to form when fighting fast enemies, as he can usually fight on equal footing with some speed-based characters. While not his biggest assets, his durability and endurance both get pretty large boosts as well, letting him last longer in fights and take more damage while shrugging off weaker attacks.
Sanguine Energy: This is the exact opposite of Holy energy Van usually uses while in his other forms, and acts as the opposite as well. Sanguine energy is naturally pitch black and radiates from Van's body while in his Shadow Angel form. Instead of being Holy and compatible with light, Sanguine energy is evil in its natural form and is compatible with darkness instead. This energy is much more volatile than Holy energy, having more powerful negative effects when used on opponents. Sanguine energy is also more of a step up from Holy energy than it is an exact opposite in terms of power, meaning it makes Van even stronger than he would be if he was using Holy energy in this form. Van can even use this energy as a sort of armor, and can manipulate that armor to make himself appear to be a giant shadow dragon if he truly wants. This also makes his spells and magic attacks much stronger than normal as well.
Darkness Control: In this form, Van also has control over darkness instead of his normal control over light energy. He can manipulate it much the same way he can with light energy in his other forms, except the darkness energy is much stronger than his Angelic forms' light powers. He can also use this energy to teleport much easier than he could with a chaos energy-based teleportation. He can create solid objects about darkness, such as weapons, barriers, and even things like chairs, buildings, etc.
Shadow Flare: Instead of using Holy Fire with his Seishin Buki, Van uses his Shadow Flare instead. While acting as the dark form of Holy Fire, Shadow Flare actually serves a few other uses as well. While also being extremely hot, Shadow flames actually have an explosive side effect; whenever a wave of Shadow Flare hits something, a large explosion takes place (dependent on how much fire there is in that particular wave), destroying whatever was hit, and then covers what remains in black fire, burning it to a crisp.
Heavenly Demonic Angel Quantum Explosion: This is probably Van's ultimate ability in this form, and probably his strongest ability period (except for his Divine Ascension form). By combining not only his Shadow Flare, but also his Sanguine Energy and Darkness energy, Van can really turn the tables in a battle. Basically, he takes as much energy as possible into the core of his body and rapidly compacts it and multiplies the amount of energy utilized. After charging up as much energy as he possibly can, Van begins to be swallowed up by the total amount of energy involved. He is covered in pitch-black darkness, swallowing up all the light in the area. After his body is completely covered, the energy explodes outwards at Supernova speeds, covering and swallowing everything in the area. When it reaches is maximum diameter, about a mile or more in diameter, it suddenly explodes, obliterating everything around the gigantic sphere of energy, and covering everything in darkness and black fire, burning everything remaining (though there probably wont be much) to a crisp, disintegrating pretty much all of those caught in the blast radius. After using this, Van falls to the ground, unconscious and out of energy. However, if there is still a potential threat, he will automatically use his Divine Ascension form afterwards.
Class Title: The Archangel of Holiness
Van doesn't gain any new abilities from this class, however he gets a huge boost to his already ridiculously powerful spells, magic, and energy use, making him an even stronger mage than he was before. This class is also what gives him his absolutely ridiculous supply of Holy energy that he has access to whenever he feels like using it, as it increases his bond to the Soul King and the heavens in which he makes his home.

Before I tell you all about Vandesdelca's history and life, I better take you back to the beginning of the Iramasha Clan, as his fate and that of the clan itself are intertwined in a dance of destiny.
-In the Beginning-
Back before the Iramasha clan was founded, the Soul King and Demon King reigned supreme, beings above all others. One day, they each had a new follower: the Soul King had a devoted heavenly follower called an Angel, while the Demon King had a straight-from-hell underling called a Demon. These followers were the first of their kind, the originals. Without them the Iramasha would not exist.
Realizing they needed more followers, the Demon King and Soul King increased the numbers of the Angels and Demons exponentially until there was a large population of both. Of these many Angels that were put into existence, Vandesdelca was created as well. While not of the original wave of Angels, Vandesdelca is considered to be ancient by modern definitions as he existed before the Iramasha clans were created. Living in peace, both species lived in harmony. However, these populations would not last long, as war was imminent. Such creatures of opposite existences couldn't live in cohabitation for long, could they?
With their armies set and ready for battle, the Spirit King and Demon king began to wage bloody war against each other; a war that would rock all of existence and change the world forever. These two opposing forces obliterated each other again and again, unforgiving forces that wreaked havoc by destroying each other. The war lasted for a very long time, causing countless deaths on both sides, with neither side gaining the upper hand in this never-ending battle of hatred. However, both the Angels and Demons were getting sick and tired of fighting each other in the name of the Spirit King and Demon King, and wanted he war to end. Van was among these peace-seeking beings, however he wouldn't leave the side of the great Spirit King, a being Vandesdelca revered as a god (and it could be said he was a god). Being the loyal follower he is, Van kept on fighting until the very end, when the main Demons and Angels came to a compromise and created the Iramasha clan set to live on Iramasha Island, far above the lands known as Soul Society.
Knowing the only option was to stay with the main body of Angels in order to properly serve the Spirit King, Van decided to not fight anymore, and joined the Iramasha clan, being one of the earliest members. While not personally close to the leaders of either side, Van had known the Angel Iramasha leader and Demon Iramasha leader and still, to this day, tells stories of their greatness, and how they were loved by many, as they had brought peace to the two warring factions.
-The Times of Peace-
Not much can be said about the peaceful times during the existence of the Iramasha clan; the clan grew in numbers and power, while Van trained to become more and more powerful. It was around this time that he was able to force himself into obtaining his Angelic Release state by fighting particularly nasty demons (not Iramashan demons) on Earth in order to protect the planet. Accepting the Spirit Kings gift graciously, Van reached heights of power unforeseen before. With this new level of power, Van decided to travel back to the Iramasha Island high above Soul Society to return to his family of Iramasha. After returning after Senorn Iramasha stepped down from being the second generation Angel Iramasha leader, Vandesdelca was to be the next leader. Van served for a good 1000 years before retiring from his position like Senorn had. Being a natural leader, Van led the Iramasha through peace just as the original leaders had, as well as enacting new laws and reforming some old laws/systems, as well as making marriage to those outside of the Iramasha clan legal. He eventually stepped down from his position, wanting the newer Iramasha generations to take over. 2000-3000 years later, Van ended up having his first child; Nobu Iramasha.
-Raiden and Nobu-
After Hashirama and Tobirama Iramasha stepped down, new leaders had to be elected, and the ones chosen were Raiden Iramasha, who became the new Leader of the Demon Iramasha, and Nobu Iramasha, who became the new Leader of the Angel Iramasha. This is where things get tricky for the clan and for Van, as some things begin to turn for the worst. Van was there when Nobu had been infected by Touketsu's soldier Ender, and noticed the changes in his personality. Van is actually responsible for many records about this time that is available for the Iramasha clan today, as he kept a close eye on Nobu, being his first son and all.
Van knew Nobu extremely well, making sure to play an active part in his life. He was astonished at how kind an a person could be, and attempted to model himself after the Iramasha, making himself a visage of friendliness and overall kindness. However, once Nobu was effected by the Seal of Junsai, Van decided never to have a fellow Iramasha as a role model again, as they were fallible creatures, unlike the Soul King who was an almighty god, who was infallible. Right about this time is when Van began to dedicate himself to the Spirit King again. This was mainly to cover up his emotions, as he was, in reality, deeply saddened by what was going on with Nobu.
After the still-fuzzy situation that led to the "deaths" of both Nobu Iramasha, and Raiden Iramasha, the Iramasha Clan fell into chaos once again; and once again Van traveled to earth to escape the madness of his fellow Iramashan's. Vandesdelca was completely and utterly destroyed inside, as he had witnessed his son go from being a kind-hearted man, to an evil, corrupted being, to "dying". Generations later, Ketsu Iramasha and Halo Iramasha, Vandesdelca's grandson, would end up rising to power. Van tried to do whatever he could to care for Halo.
While Van was on Earth, he meditated and performed various miracles around the planet, increasing his own power as he went along. Eventually he was prepared to accept another gift from the great Soul King; the gift of the Awakened Divinity State. He obtained this state through various struggles on Earth, along with being granted boons because of his kindness towards people and the planet as a whole. He went around saving the lives of humans that were close to death, as well as helping the souls of humans be safely transferred to Soul Society. Around this time is when he was given the title "Holy Father" by his disciples on Earth, who revered him as a holy Archangel in their stories. During World War II, Van went around helping various humans safely reach Heaven and Soul Society, making sure the battlegrounds didn't become feeding area's for Hollows and Demons alike.
-Touketsu, Ender, and All the other Baddies-
Trouble, and lots of it. This is the way Van describes the dark days that led up to Ender coming to power, along with his fall. Though he didn't get involved much, he experienced much of the darkness surrounding that evil man.
After a certain assassination attempt on Ketsu Iramasha, he went on a rampage, allowing Touketsu and Dark Ketsu to reign supreme in his body. Many fellow Iramasha were effected by this, whether it be because they died or because they were forced to take in some dark energy from Touketsu, they were changed forever. One of those effected by Touketsu's dark energy was Vandesdelca Iramasha himself. While he didn't absorb enough to control Deaths Energy, he absorbed enough to alter his Angelic "Archangel Form", which turned this form into one of darkness, providing him with what he has now; the Shadow Angel form.
As time went by, the Iramasha Clan began to settle down, however battles and various arcs of history kept happening in the other realms. A Shinigami named Aizen Sosuke rose to power and threatened the existence of all of Soul Society; Other than silently watching from the Iramasha homeland, Van didn't participate in any of these battles.
Then, Ender rose to power. This was a tricky time for every single species, including the Iramasha and humans, and Van was no exception. Seeing how much trouble the Iramasha were in, and the potential trouble that could come to Heaven and even the Soul King, Van decided to travel to the realm of the Soul King and act as a final line of defense should anyone enter the Holy realm. He ended up staying in Heaven throughout the entire Ender arc, but he got a lot out of it, so he regrets nothing.
He meditated and trained for many a year in this realm, developing a close bond with the holy dimension. Eventually, Van himself was called to the Spirit King. Now, not much is known about this conference, since Van refuses to reveal any details, but it's clear about this time is when he reached an even higher level of power, though he had obtained his Divine Ascension form awhile before he was even brought to the Soul King. With his new power, he traveled back to the Iramasha realm, to be greeted by a new semi-peace. While the good guys werent necessarily under siege, the threat of war still loomed over everyones heads. After heading back to the physical world, Van was officially introduced to Ketsu Iramasha and Halo Iramasha, eventually befriending both (though because of how he treats Ketsu, they have a shaky relationship indeed). Van returned to Heaven when Kin and his army attacked the Soul King, and helped protect the dimension from collapse, though he himself did not fight in the Kin vs Soul King battle. Instead, he fought lower enemies, helping to weaken the enemy forces.
In the days leading up to the upcoming Winter War Arc, Van has prepared himself. Why? Because he decided it was finally time to really help and save whomever he could. This means he would have to play a major part in the soon-to-come battles that would change the world forever. Van would also have to help guide the Iramasha clan through the upcoming turbulence and tough waters, as his wisdom and knowledge of the past can only be a boon to the clan. How was he going to accomplish this exactly? By becoming the leader of the Angel Iramasha, thats how. Vandesdelca reclaimed the title of Angel Iramasha Leader, believing the new generations needed a strong leader to help guide them through turbulent times, which is exactly what he plans on doing.

I have noted some problems not all down below, I shall list more once the current list is fixed. So till than moved to WIP
“The molecules move so rapidly that the kinetic energy is through the roof compared to average fire or energy-enhanced fire. The temperature average can get much higher than 5000 degrees Fahrenheit rather easily. Van has easy manipulation over this fire as he's been using Maikeru for millennia, being able to control it the way he imagines it. He can generate a pretty-much infinite amount of this white-hot holy fire from Maikeru, a testament to his control over it. It also has increased damage to demons (not demon Iramasha, but actual demons), as it is holy fire and demons are naturally evil/dark creatures. By covering Maikeru in this Holy Fire, he can increase the Seishin Buki's overall damage output. When he strikes things with metal or ice on them, he can melt both with one strike. By slashing the air, he can create blasts of Holy Fire similar to the way Ichigo Kurosaki creates waves of energy with his Getsuga Tensho ability. ”
You list here that Van can pretty much summon forth a endless amount of these flames with ease. You state that there about 5000 fahrenheit which is akin to napalm, which wouldn't be so bad if it was more limited, but since you said that the kinetic energy is thought the roof, and gave no real example for it, you're pretty much summoning a endless amount of enhanced napalm at once that can harm demons even more, with again no real example of how much damage increase for that damage atop of everything else. And as you state you say he can pretty much destroy all forms of weapons as most of them are made of metal, and people with very strong ice powers, such as those Rihiku who whole powerset is swords and ice, meaning you can melt all of his ice attacks with one blow. And there is no visible drawbacks listed here, or how much energy it takes to use such a move.
“Wisdom, Experience, Knowledge, and Intelligence: As stated in his personality, Van is a very wise man, partly due to the high amount of years he has spent living, and also because of his innate personality to be very good when it comes to giving advice. Also, as an Angel Iramasha, he has a natural affinity towards deducing the inner nature of those around him. Along with gaining a vast ocean of knowledge throughout his long life, Van has also accumulated quite a bit of experience from his various ventures. During World War II, he was in Europe, helping wandering souls make it to Soul Society. This is when he truly experienced the pain war can cause, forcing him to realize there was no good reason for combat and killing. He has experienced the pure destructive force of Touketsu, Ender, and Kin Iramasha as well. When he isn't busy, Van will read books from his humongous library consisting of over 10,000 books of various genres and origins.”
Alright, this is the sort of thing that goes into personalty, and a lot of this is run on’s, just to make your app longer, you could of saved space just by keeping this in personality than saying its a power.
“Physical Prowess: Although Van is primarily an energy-based fighter, when he fights physically, he hits hard. He gives up speed and mobility for pure power, and can unleash bone-crushing blows with Maikeru. He has trained himself to not only be extremely strong, but also pretty enduring as well. He can not only give damage, but also take a considerable amount from his enemies too. He has demonstrated his strength on multiple occasions, mainly when he was doing miracles on Earth, such as saving people from crashes, and even moving entire cruise liners so they wouldn't crash into an iceberg or something similar to that type of situation. His speed, while given up for strength, is still relatively high, giving him an advantage over slow fighters weaker than him”
Normally I wouldn't mind people with high physical power, but you state that he is extremely strong, as most energy fighters give up speed and physical power for their better damage output. which while okay examples, you gave no real examples of what he really do, can he punch out a mountain? How much can he take at once before falling down, etc. You state that he is high in speed, meaning you're contradicting yourself, since you gave no real example, other than saying he faster than those weaker than himself, his tier is near max being 0-2+ which means he going to be extremely fast regardless.
“Healing Abilities: A big part of Van's arsenal of abilities is not even his offensive capabilities; no, it's his healing powers. Due to being an Angel Iramasha, he has a natural affinity to healing techniques. He can heal even those near death, and can fully heal minor injuries quickly and easily without needing to consume even a moderate amount of energy. When he was on Earth performing miracles, he was healing many humans, quincy, shinigami, and others. If someone needed his help, he healed them. “
Again no real visible drawbacks other than saying he uses an small amount of energy. meaning you can save those near death with no real side effects, while decent power, atop of everything else he can already is a bit overpowering.
“Blade Skill: Through years and years of hardwork and training, Van has become an extremely formidable foe with his Seishin Buki and short swords in general. While he mainly uses energy attacks in battle, he is very skillful with a blade. He can fight on par with those of equal strength that are skilled with blades as well, and can even go on the offensive with his sword. A big part of his fighting style with his sword, is using Maikeru to bash and destroy with his own tremendous physical strength; he is not a swift sword fighter. Instead, he prefers to land heavy blows on opponents. “
You state he is skillful with a blade, yet no real examples, or sword techs he can do, yes you did state that he uses heavy blows, but that isn’t a style to go off of. And stating that he can fight on equal level of those in blades. Meaning your saying he can fight grand masters despite relying on energy attacks.
“Light Control: As an Angel Iramasha, Van has a natural affinity for light. However, with all of the miracles he has performed and his growth as an Angel (including the use of his unlocked forms), he has gained total control over the element of light. Whether it be natural light or artificial light, it lies in the domain of Vandesdelca to be controlled. He can even generate physical weapons made of light particles that can slice through objects as though it's a solid blade, and because of the speed of light particles, a tremendous amount of kinetic energy is generated as well, which can cause burns and scorch objects, etc. He can erect barriers made of light as well, and pretty much use light for almost any purpose. In his words "The world is my canvas...and light is my paintbrush." Basically, he has learned to alter light in such a way that when he thinks of something, he can make it out of light. By generating light, he can still fight with it in extremely dark places and can even override opponents' abilities that cancel light. Van can completely remove all light from any given area, which could have a few side effects. One thing he could do after that is make it extremely bright in said area to blind the person on a high level, giving himself an advantage. Or, he could remove all the light in a large area, and then manipulate the darkness element to make it so only he could see inside the area, giving him another advantage. “
Youre stating that you can make anything that Van can think of can be formed from light, which is impossible, and no this isn’t like the green lantern which a power ring that can generate a variety of effects, sustained purely by the ring wearer's imagination and strength of will. The greater the user's will power, the more effective the ring is, however they had to use three factors, willpower, imagination, and knowledge, and even then they are limited to certain forms, since they can’t truly make everything they can think of.And near the end you state you can remove light in the area, and then control DARKNESS, so far with everything he has is to much.
“Tokugi: These are his weakest spells in his arsenal, though they are still extremely powerful compared to standard Iramasha spells. With Radiant Blade, he covers Maikeru, his Seishin Buki, in energy, and then thrusts forward, sending the energy towards his opponent at a moderate speed. His other spells include basic healing spells, as well as Cero-like abilities he has mastered over years of use.”
You state spell’s meaning a lot more than that is listed here, you said mastered over the years, we need a full list of what he can do. not very vague info.
“Increased Holy Fire Control: While in his Angelic Release form, Van has even more control over the fire created by his Seishin Buki Maikeru. Not only can he increase the temperature to even higher levels, but he can also control it's movements and form much easier and on a higher level now. He can make creatures and people made of this holy fire. An example would be him making a large winged dragon of holy fire or even something smaller like a cheetah or lion, and control the 'creatures' very skillfully”.
Again no visible drawbacks, this needs drawbacks if your doing something this complex.
“Solar Flare: By combining his light energy control and his holy fire he can generate through use of Maikeru, he can create a massive blast of power that combines both the radiant energy of light (including its high kinetic energy potential) and the intense flames from Maikeru. This blast is extremely bright, able to blind spectators, as well as extremely, extremely, hot, as the particles move at insane speeds, increasing the overall heat used. This blast can be manipulated like a whip, with Maikeru used as the focal point for manipulation. The whip is 5o feet long and very powerful. The energy required to sustain this isn't much for Vandesdelca since he can manipulate light at high levels and has an insane amount of Holy Energy anyway.”
You state very powerful, but hardly any cost for it? this needs more drawbacks in order to be used more effectively.
“Divine Right: This is the only new ability Van gains access to when he enters his Awakening Divinity form, though, arguably, the only one he would ever need in this form. Divine Right is a rather interesting ability, and can either be extremely weak, or extremely powerful and useful, depending on how it's used by Vandesdelca. Basically, he can manipulate pretty much everything around him to a high extent. To go more into detail, I'll describe a few things. This ability is based on his Absolute Energy, which he uses to change and control his surroundings. Say there is dirt on the ground. He can use that dirt to create entire skyscrapers made of steel. How does he do this, you ask? Since Absolute Energy can use any element, he takes it a step further to make it so he can use virtually any material known to him to chance the form of one material to another. Essentially, he can change one object to a different object of a different material as he sees fit. The larger the transformation, the more energy is required, however due to his massive reserves of energy already, he doesn't really need to worry about large transformations unless used in rapid succession. The major downside to this ability is he needs something to get started; basically, he needs a base. To create that building, he needs the dirt for the base. This doesn't mean he needs an entire buildings worth of dirt, but depending on the size of the building, he will need a relative amount of the dirt to begin with. He can't make the empire state building with a fistful of dirt. He could, but he would be so exhausted afterwards, he wouldn't be able to fight at all.
Creation of 10, 000 Blades: As the name implies, this technique includes creating roughly ten thousand or more various weapons from the surrounding terrain and various objects around Vandesdelca. The more he uses, the more weapons hes able to make and use. The weapons can vary in size, but they are usually just thousands of swords, whether they are long or short swords doesn't really matter. After creating all of these swords, who's blades/etc are hardened and empowered by the energy that formed them, can be used for various purposes: Van could make a huge shield/wall of them to protect him, or he could launch them all at his enemy at once as a sort of "Hail Mary" all-out attack.”
No, just no, This is shimura whole powerset, something which Kendall/Agito/Shirou. stated countless times in Xat for his character, a character that which as a long history with the site, and reasons she has that power as well. then the 10,000 blades is too much like Gilgamesh powerset. Which again is something that Kendall said in Xat countless times.
