Target sighted... commencing operation Shinigami Surrender. The man wearing the dark cloak thought to himself, tossing the binoculars that he was using onto the ground as he vanished, using Geppo, a chi skill. He wasn't really sure why he was here; he think it had something to do with testing out the power of the Soul Society or something similar. Hell, I dunno. I'm just doing what I always do; complete my mission. He thought as he reappeared, standing before the man he had spotted.
"Yo. I'm Brian Washi, Ash Division Commander of the Rinyauru... and the youngest member of the house of Washi. I'm here to challenge you, it appears." He said, his eyes staring at the man as a small smile rose on his lips, placing his arms crossed in front of his chest. However, he didn't leave them like that. He sliced his arms with his thumbs, making small cuts on either arm as he laid his hands flat on the wound. He felt the blood on them as he pulled his arms away, gripping the wounds. Or rather, the blood in the wounds, as on either arm, a strange blade, made of blood, had appeared, sharp as a Zanpaktou and going up past his head in length, a wide smile on his face.
Renji tilted his head as the male appeared and introduced himself "Hn..." He smirked when he said he came to challenge him, Grabbing his Zanpaktou's hilt and pulling it from it's Sheath, He watched as the man did his performance and smirked "Going to give me an interesting fight right?" He said with a smirk, Standing with both hands firmly grasping the hilt he waited for his new found opponent to strike first "The name's Renji Abarai, Hope you have insurance" He said with a grin, Adjusting his feet so he was in a lower more guarded stance, Holding the hilt behind and above his head and pointing the blade forward. In this stance Renji could easily parry most attacks that came at him as well as swiftly counter attack after parrying an attack, Though he kept this to himself as he kept his eye on his opponent, Though he also watched his Spiritual Energy to see which way it would go should he try anything like Flash Step or Sonido since, Despite visual's, They're spiritual energy would shift to one side when they used it and that would indicate in which direction he needed to guard
That's it… be curious. It'll only drive you further. Brian thought to himself, seeing the man as he began to tilt his head. "Hells yeah." He replied calmly and surely to the man's question. His eyepatch was sticking out clearly, the small pool of blood that was Kit lying in the socket behind it. After all, Brian was a human. A flesh and blood… make that a flesh, and blood, and blood. He chuckled to himself at this thought, knowing how rapidly his heart was beating in his chest, hundreds of times per minute, always beating as hard as if he had just finished running a marathon. Of course, I've just got more chi (blood) than normal people… and chi. He thought, smiling even wider. I crack myself up…
He refocused his attention on the man before him once more. "Hells no, I don't have insurance. After all, what kinda freak like this would need insurance, eh?" He asked, holding his left arm out before himself and situating his right arm below it, shooting the right arm up. It slashed right through his flesh, as Brian's entire front became covered in blood. Quite a lot of blood; it was literally spewing all over him from a mere cut. However, the douse, after just a moment or two, ceased, as Brian laid his left arm out before him, showing Renji the already forming scab, as his skin reformed over the cut.
"LET'S GET STARTED THEN!" He said loudly, seeing the man had gotten into a defensive stance. Brian was eager to begin, and merely smiled as he moved his right arm before himself, as if he had just performed a right hook in midair. However, as he did so, the Blade Blood on his arm stretched far out, trying to slam right into Renji at chest level as Brian came under, taking a step forwards.
He shot his left arm up, trying to slash open Renji's right side, as his other hand came back. He pushed the right hand forwards, throwing a strong punch right at the left side of Renji's chest. Brian brought his right hand back, preparing himself. His hands moved with a speed as the blades flew out, Brian performing the air-hooks that resulted in the Blade Bloods slashing at Renji's chest, stomach, groinal, shoulder, and head areas. Brian finished after twenty slashes, ten on each hand, his hands stopping their rapid movement of two-hundred and fifty miles per hour, as he snapped the Blade Bloods on either side of himself.
His blades shot out, extending as he brought both of them before himself, taking a single step forwards. The Blade Bloods, now roughly a hundred feet in length as they reached where Renji had been standing, his hands now over the other arms elbow. All around Brian and Renji, leaves suddenly rustled, falling down from their branches as Brian reaffirmed his stance, the sides of his open jacket blowing, holding his arms at his sides, looking at Renji. If Renji attempted to shunpo away and dodge his blows easily, there was a chance that the rapid speed of the slashes or the sheer size of the finale would try to stop him in his tracks before he could run.
Brian leapt back, bringing up a hand as he did so. “Release Gate One: Level One, Step Blood.” He spoke simply, his hands still at either side as his entire body began emitting a blood-red colored aura, feeling the blood in his limbs…
Renji grinned as the man made his first mistake...Charging him, He kept his eyes glued and moved the sword so it would block the first blow from Brian's right arm, Moving his arm he now grabbed his sheath, The sheath having the same density as the Zanpaktou he brought it up to block the second blow, Though the sheath wouldn't hold long, He then saw the man pull his right arm back and swing it forward, This left his Zanpaktou free, He brought it up, Slicing it down on the male's left arm blade aiming to cut it in half or force it to drop to the ground.
At this point one of two things would happen, If it forced the blade on his left arm to drop his entire body would drop with it, Dodging the punch and causing Renji to bring his Zanpaktou upwards from it's position holding the blade down, Aiming to either slice the male's arm off, Or cause him to jump backwards.
Or it would slice the blade off and Renji would be sent flying backwards from the punch effectively dodging the next set of swings unless they we're shot out at a range, If they we're project tiles and Renji did infact take the punch he would quickly use Shunpo to dodge the first few swings and begin running to the left to dodge them as he swong them.
Either way at the end they we're standing apart from each other, When Brian began chanting Renji grinned, Re positioning himself as he placed his palm flat against his Zanpaktou "Roar, Zabimaru!" Is all Renji said as he brought his hand downward on the flat part of the blade, Zabimaru transforms into an even longer 6-part segmented blade; each segment is wider than the one preceding it from the hilt with 2 pick-like protrusions on the front and back of each segment, with the ones on the front much longer than the ones at the back. At this point is when the male finished his incantation and it was the same moment that Renji swong the whip-like blade at the man horizontally and at his right side Zabimaru's segments grow in number almost without limit. The segments are connected by a stretchable thread which Renji can seperate and reconnect on a whim though it does take him using his Spiritual energy to do so, After the first swing he pulled the blade back and swong it in a diagonal way at the man, He still had his sheath tied to his belt incase he needed to block
Brian had smirked as the blade hit his arm. It was cut, alright. And it proceeded as a huge amount splattered, right into the direction of Renji's face, most likely getting into his eyes and hindering him later when it began to bother his pupils. The blade slit right off his arm as he pulled it back and pressed it against the Blade Blood, causing it to drop from being able to cut him.
Brian watched as the man leaped back, unsure of what he was doing after he had been punched and managed to shunpo out of the range of his Blade Blood's extending. "Oi! Whatcha' think you're doing?" He said, smiling like a madman, his eye wide and hungry to continue as he saw the man began to release his shikai. "Oh, this should be INTERESTING!" His voice boomed, seeing as the sword formed. Weird-lookin' thing... reminds me of... some kinda saw... or something... He thought uneasily, as he watched Renji bring the blade back and swing it forwards.
The result made Brian smile as he saw it began to stretch. "So THAT'S your game!" He called loudly, as his knees bent an immense amount, the wound that he had suffered to the arm finishing its sealing up. "Similar to my Blade Blood's; but not as tactical." He spoke, his one eye staring directly at Renji's two as he began to feel the blood pressed down into his legs, his right arm shooting up and behind his shoulder. He was performing a tactical maneuver as he bent his head down, his Blade Blood knocking into Zabimaru, throwing it above his head, feeling the blade cut the tips of a few of his spiky, stiff hairs. "Oi now; I like my hair!" He said with a smile, as he suddenly vanished.
Step Blood was now active as he reappeared, standing right behind Renji. The blood he had pressed into his limb had caused his heart rate to briefly shoot up from its tremendous norm into the rest of his body, as he had shot out from under the blade at blazing speeds and run behind the Lieutenant. He brought his right arm, with his left hand over the now-empty space where the Blade Blood had been. He had broken it off as he moved, leaving only the wound. He then pulled on the wound, stretching his actual blood, feeling it pull back as he suddenly ripped it out, extending the blade wide out before him. "HERE IT COMES!" He announced, the wide grin on his face as he continued his slash. The blade shot out with an immense speed, aimed right at Renji's right shoulder and diagonal. The mere shock waves of it, or the blade itself, or both, smashed into the ground, creating a loud VRAOH noise as the soft ground gained an actual impression of a widened version of the Blade Blood on it.
"Come on now!" Brian spoke, feeling the Blade Blood returning to normal on his arm, holding his arms to either side of his chest, leaving his semi-bare chest wide open. "You can do better than one measly slash!" He challenged, the smile still on his face, determined to make this shinigami show him, exactly, what it was that he could do...
He was slightly caught off guard when the male managed to duck under the attack and deflect it, However as he had prepared for a counter attack he grabbed the Sheath again and swong it behind him and watched as it slammed against the male's blade, He was now in close enough range that dodging his next attack was near impossible, He swong his entire body around and brought his blade around and let the blade extend again, The blade aiming to wrap around Brian and dig into his waist and if it did Brian was finished, Pulling back on the hilt to force the blades to be brought closer, If Brian was caught in the blade's they'd spin around his body and slice his torso clean off the rest of his body. The blood that had splattered on him thankfully only a small bit of it managed to get into his eyes though it did happen and slowly but surely it was starting to get annoying
Brian watched as the man spun around, shooting Zabimaru out. This... could be bad. He thought as he felt the sword rap itself completely around him. Uh-oh! He thought, seeing as his blood began to shoot out, completely covering the blade in blood in less than a second, including the wires. He grit his teeth, smiling, looking at the man. "Was kinda hoping it wouldn't come to this, but you've kinda forced my hand here... Release Gate Two: Level Two, Travel Blood.”
He announced, as his blood suddenly began to flood out all over the blade, going all out over Brian as the blade squeezed even tighter. HERE GOES NOTHING! He thought, as he suddenly... vanished. However, he soon reappeared, his body shooting straight up from the pool of blood that was covering the space between the two fighters, Brian panting heavily as he felt his platelets going to work on the tiny wounds that covered his waist and one on each wrists; they had completely binded him before. JESUS. He thought to himself for a split second, his eyes having glanced down to briefly inspect the damage. ANY LOWER AND... I'M NOT GOING TO THINK ABOUT THAT. He decided, his eyes shooting up to his enemy, his aura darkening, and his eye becoming dark red as his eyepatch was blown off of his face, revealing what was beneath it.
Under the eyepatch... was his eyesocket. The bare eyesocket was filled with blood, of course... shifting, moving blood, with a very dark center. This was the fake eye made by Brian's Ziamichi Spirit; it was what allowed him to see out of that eye. It was also what bound him to his spirit. However, now was not the time to think of this as Brian's hands shot out from his sides where they had been pinned. The blood that was covering his pants suddenly moved along with his hands, as in each hand he now held a sai. A three pointed, handled sai, made of hardened blood. His left hand shot out, throwing one sai into the threads of Zabimaru, trying to move it and knock it out of Renji's grip. At the very least, it would pull on Renji and distract him as Brian's right hand shot out. He shot the sai forwards, aiming with deadly precision, as he stabbed the blade into the direction of Renji's ribcage, going for a spot between the ribs and through next to the heart. He wasn't trying to kill the man; but if this hit, it would be fairly difficult for him to keep fighting in this form. Brian noticed his vision was beginning to get blurry. Sonuva... He thought, feeling his balance slightly off after attempting the stabbing. Darn Blade Loss... He knew that it had taken slight effect. After all, he had lost a lot of blood, used Travel Blood, and created two sais. However, the effects were fairly light, and there was a good chance that he would still be able to continue the bout for some time, if need be...
Renji watched as the man vanished into thin air and then shot up, He grinned and sighed "Aw man...And here I was beginning to think I had you...Guess not" He said with a grin as he saw the two Sai's appear, Though since he was throwing them at a distance he had plenty of time to react, Using the sheath to knock the left sai that he threw away before it hit though the right sai was another story, Barely catching it he jerked his body to the left, causing the sai to strike on the opposite side of his chest nowhere near his heart, Letting the sheath drop he grabbed the back of Brian's neck now, Bringing the sword down at Brian's shoulder, It was near impossible to dodge since Renji not only had ahold of the man, But the man's Sai was now firmly implanted into his chest...Sure it hurt like a bitch but Renji wasn't going to let that stop him.
If Zabimaru's blade would connect with the man's shoulder he'd rip his arm back causing the points on the end to begin cutting through his shoulder, Slicing every bone and vein they passed through, slowly getting deeper and deeper as it got closer to the edge of the blade, After which Renji would push the man away and grab the Sai, Ripping it from his chest he dropped it and wobbled a small amount panting but had a grin on his face "Man oh man...I haven't had a fight this good in awhile!" He said chuckling "Guess it's time since you've shown so much strength...That I return the favor!" He said, shifting his position yet again, His eyes narrowed and he took a much calmer facial expression
The area around him began to blow dust up around him and when it now circled him only one word was heard "Bankai!" The spiritual pressure coming from the man now skyrocketing as his red reiatsu becomes visible, When the dust and smoke settled Zabimaru had transformed into a massive version of its Shikai form resembling a skeleton of a snake. Zabimaru gains many more segments, which are much larger resembling a mix between a snake’s vertebral column and the pick-like protrusions of his Shikai segments, and it also gains a snake-like head about the size of a small car. Renji is also slightly transformed, gaining a fur cowl around his neck. The cowl appears to be the fur of an ape and thus, the ape's skull could be seen over Renji's left shoulder while the rest of the fur extends to cover his right arm.
"Hihio, Zabimaru" He said calmly, lifting the 'end' of the new form of Zabimaru he lashed it towards his opponent with a great amount of speed for how big the thing was shouting "Hikotsu Taihō" Which literally meant 'Baboon Bone Canon, The technique fires a dense blast of concentrated spiritual energy from Zabimaru's mouth, He was also able to whip it around rather quickly and use just about any part of it to protect himself from most close range and almost every ranged attack thought of though his Bankai was nowhere near undefeatable, It was just very difficult to do so from far away after the Hikotsu Taihō Zabimaru broke apart as though it had been destroyed though only a fool would think so.
Brian blinked in surprise at the man. He hadn't expected him to be able to stop the Sai's the way he did; although with a sai in his chest, Brian doubted the match would go on much longer. He had chucked that thing quite hard; and was sure that it most likely had hit a lung from that angle. The longer this thing went on, the more his opponent would be having trouble breathing, but before then...
He closed his eyes, both of them, his normal-red one and his one of blood. As he did so, the wounds all around his waist suddenly burst out blood, as it covered his entire body, like a thin protective layer. However, it only lasted for a moment, as the Crow's new form appeared. First, his hair was shown; a brighter-green look to it, its texture smooth and light, unlike his normal stiff-and-spiky. His eyes were wide, slitted, red, and staring, both eyes on his face now as he stared at his opponent; his other eye had reformed from the transformation.
His mouth became in view, and it smiled wide, revealing its sharpened canines. he lulled the tongue out, all four-extending inches of it, whipping it out and probing the air with it as it came back smoothly to his mouth. His body was now cloaked in a white vestment, open at the belly button but fully covering him other wise, its shirt tails going down to his knees. It was covered with strange, circling black parts, although they didn't really stand out.
He bent over, placing his tongue out, resting his now much-smaller and Blade free hands behind his back. All the blood that he had been forced to spill, in addition to the amount spurted out from Renji taking the sai... all of it in a foots radius of his tongue. The blood all shot up, going right for his tongue, as it made contact, sliding down quickly on his tongue and down his throat as he brought his head back up, almost as if he had just licked the ground.
"Thanks, me, and you, for the meal." He said, placing his right hand on his belly and smiling as he saw the gigantic blast suddenly being formed in front of him. That can't be good. He thought as the blast shot at him. Suddenly, in Brian's left hand appeared a dagger... not just any dagger. This was his dagger made specially for his blood. He turned the blade in his hand around, throwing his left hand to his right hand, then tearing it horizontally back over to the left.
The blade struck, all across his chest, easily tearing open the flesh around it; as was its special ability. Crow leaped back, placing both hands on the blood, as he threw his hands forwards in front of him. The blood shot out, in the form of a gigantic plate, right in front of Crow, causing him to begin breathing heavily, his heart racing at its four hundred beats per minute as it pumped out his blood.
The attack impacted his shield, and he felt as he was blown away. He realized that he had lost half of his face and his right arm in the explosion; he grunted, vanishing as he touched down, having used Step Blood as he grabbed back onto his arm, which had been on the other side of the explosion. He placed it with his left hand onto the stump that was where his arm had been, as he made quick work of it, sewing it with a trail of blood from the wound as he forced the blood to rush inside of it, sighing in relief as one of the fingers began to move. The right side of his face had been reduced to so much skull past the eye; and he could already feel the amounts of blood firing out of it as it began healing itself.
Crow stopped where he was, spitting. He spat out a good glop of blood, from the wounds he sustained, watching as it hit the ground... and Crow vanished from sight. He reappeared, standing in the midst of Renji, right in front of his opponent and his broken Zanpaktou. Crow's distorted face stared at Renji as he held his left hand up high into the air. He had been able to travel through the blood using the glop of blood he had spat out, which had connected the two bloody messes between himself and Renji. Frack I lost a lotta blood...
"Yin...Surge." He said, the energy in his hand having completed its charging as he threw his hand forwards. Out of his hand fired a dense, black energy, the size of Renji's devastating attack, aimed right for the Shinigami's chest. Even if it didn't impact, it would still most likely be activated, if by Brian's mind alone. So, either way, the Yin Surge activated as it exploded, causing massive damage to anything within its 10 foot blast radius. As this happened, the entire field around the two became darker, as if light had literally been sucked out of it, as Renji and his zanpaktou would begin feeling as if they were moving in a kind of slow motion.
Brian, on the other hand, felt as his whole body began to accept a new kind of feeling; power literally flowing into him as a result of the Surge. He vanished once more, popping out again a few feet away, standing right in front of the small crater that had been formed from Zabimaru's last attack. He waited, panting slightly, to see what his slowed opponent would do now..
Renji was panting pretty heavily from the stab the entire time as he watched the event's unfold. However the moment Brian got cocky and moved so he was surrounded by the 'broken' pieces of his Zanpaktou Renji grinned, At first it seemed as though Renji had gone mad but then as Brian brought his hand up for his attack the segments of Zabimaru glowed with a bright red aura, Raising from the ground as Renji's Reiatsu now formed as 'ropes' around Brian, Pulling his hands to the sides and causing his blast to fire in a different direction as he placed one hand on Brian he smiled "Higa Zekkō" He said calmly, Removing his hand Zabimaru glow and sharpen using spiritual energy. They surround the opponent and execute an omni-directional attack of blades of spiritual energy. After use of this attack Hihiō Zabimaru reconstitutes itself.
By this point Renji had already moved quite far away having avoided Brian's attack completely, The only thing keep Renji from having difficulties breathing was his Bankai and even that wouldn't hold forever...Renji knew he had to end this and was hoping that his Higa Zekkō did just that since Brian was restrained with the Reiatsu ropes.
