Antigone Tsukuyomi, also known as the Savage Nymph or the Callous Vixen• True Age:
3,000+• Appearance Age:
Cero Espada • Appearance:
Antigone wears a black coat and gloves, but her black boots are more feminine and are heeled. Her bright, blonde hair is slicked back and about jaw-length, with two long strands styled into distinctive antennae-like strands. Antigone's eyes are cyan and she is very slim with an hourglass figure when compared to other members due to her gender, though this belies her true strength.• Bone Appearance:
Her Hands• Hollow Hole:
Base of Spine• Reiatsu Colour:
Yellow, black outlinePersonality:
Although Antigone is normally smiling in-person, she can be undoubtedly cold, ruthless, and uncaring, and appears to love nothing more than to bring other people down. Described the most as a domineering woman of strong personality, who does not ask, but tells, she has sharp wit and sardonic remarks ready to spite others on purpose. Her jokes tend to be more ill-humored as well, enabling anyone to successfully get irritated, and sometimes if pushed far enough, yell or charge at her in anger, a reaction which she seems to find humorous. Antigone has been seen reading a book about the infamous French writer Marquis De Sade, the namesake of sadism, which is clearly related to her sadistic nature.
Along with the callousness, however, she oddly displays childish and playful behavior, laughing and giggling excessively. She, although recognizable with her overall behavior, also appears to have a flirtatious attitude towards men of the same same (looks only) age, compared to others, with reasons for doing so not addressed. Laid back and almost passive to those she likes, or refers to as good company, Antigone expresses herself in a dramatized manner, constantly making outrageous expressions and hand movements.• History:
2,000 Years Ago
-Her early days in Hueco Mundo were spent scavenging, looking for the remains of hollows previously killed by others who actually possessed the ability to fight. She would scurry underground behind groups of hunting Arrancar just low enough to avoid detection and then crawl above ground to eat when it was safe. For nearly a thousand years, she existed in the afterworld living like this. The hate for her condition and herself that she developed as a result would be inconceivable to any whom were free to walk Hueco Mundo without fear. No one would waste their time forming a group with such a useless hollow.
1,000 Years Ago
-That is until one day he was discovered. She was pulled up from the ground by an Adjucha in charge of her own group of hollows.
“How interesting…” She said. “A leopard, like I was when I was younger. Except this one is even more useless.” The long transparent hair like appendages hanging from her head wrapped around his form, injecting him with her potent venom. She dropped Antigone “Not squishy like I was, but far more gross.” She laughed as Antigone curled up from pain caused by her venom. “I don’t even know if I want to eat this one. Who wants it?” She said in constant laughter.
“Well we can’t eat it now. I don’t want to eat any of your poison. I don’t even think I would eat it if it even if it wasn’t poisoned.” The hyena looking hollow of her group chuckled. “It looks like a giant pickled piece of poop.” Everyone laughed hysterically.
The jokes and laughs at his expense continued until their leader kneeled down beside her. She was no longer squirming in pain. “Now that’s impressive.” She said.
1,000-Present Years Ago
-The leader of the group called herself Kalita. Antigone found that her group wasn’t exaggerating when they referenced the potency of her toxin. She’d believed that her poison made her invincible. Though unintentional, Antigone taught her that this was not the case. Kalita was thankful for this, so thankful in fact that she not only took Antigone into her group, but also under the proverbial wing. She helped her to understand that hse was more battle capable than he anyone had original assumed. Within the span of one hundred years Antigone gained complete mastery of her abilities, and a certain level of understanding, along with becoming an Adjucha.
The group faced their toughest battle within this timespan. A group of three fought their group of twelve and mowed them down to a mere five. The enemies they fought were all Adjuchas.
“Hyetro!” Kalita screamed. His head was removed from the rest of his body by the giant jaws of the leader of the opposing group. Nearest they could tell, the beast was some type of large lizard. Its fire covered form made it impossible for the group to rely on their leader’s special toxin. This same lizard used its fire to prevent Kalita from taking out its teammates.
“There are but five left.” The lizard laughed. “Something tells me that a group this group won’t be enough to make us Vasto Lordes. In fact, their weakness may cause us to revert to Gillians again.” They laughed as they bit, pecked, and ripped away at the hyena, until there was nothing left.
Antigone had grown attached to this group. As weak as she still considered herself to be, she refused to sit idly by and do nothing. Her slow movements made it difficult for him to catch up to the burning lizard. But now that they had been so distracted by the hyena’s corpse, Antigone finally managed to catch up. Her belly, or what one would assume was his belly grew exponentially. Her fur became hard, plated. Her tail grew barbed and longer, she grew spikes on her arms and legs. Her canines grew longer, as did her claws. Any sense of weakness she had was suddenly erased. She leapt as the lizard, his fiery form barely harming her. She bit into his neck with her canines and claws. She reared up and sliced his entire head off. This inspired Kalita and the two of them leaped from Adjucha to Adjucha, slicing, dicing, and ripping heads off. In minutes, they made quick work of the rival pack. Nodding at each other in respect, they walked back to the pack. Things continued like for a long time, with Antigone and Kalita and Jace became Vasto Lorde. Soon it just became Antigone and Kalita. Antigone had developed a sadistic attitude and gain immense pleasure from killing other hollows. One day, they were caught unawares, caught by a Cero from a pack of Gillian. They managed to survive, however their masks were severely broken. Again, caught unawares by the pain, they separted, unsure in they would kill each other during this time period. Antigone woke, in a white room, she was now and Arrancar.• Sealed Zanpakutô: • Racial Abilities:

• RP Sample:
Antigone was waiting. In the middle of the desert, on designated location, which was just a flat piece of desert, she waited. Antigone waited for his opponent. She had very different ideas on what Arrancar actually managed to evolve into or regress into, especially Espada, during those fifty years she spent in desert. The pure evaluation would be best performed on somebody who was supposed to be strong. So after thinking a bit, a bit more, to be honest, Antigone decided that it would be smart to test the current Sexta Espada. It was not a bad idea. Sexta Espada was generally in the middle in terms of powers among Espada, and while not too strong, should be powerful. Plus, Antigone had his own connection with that rank. Her former master (not Kaltia) whom she killed was a weakling, and so was Sexta. Antigone hoped that now, position was given to somebody actually worthy of it. But there was no certain way to find out without fighting the Sexta. And Antigone was just about to do that in a brutal manner.
He simply decided to do it and sent a written challenge to the Sexta. Espada were bound to accept the challenges for battle when they got them. Only cowards avoided battle. Well, Antigone could think of one coward at this moment, but he was not fighting him. He would go and fight him later. But now, he was up against the Sexta. Antigoneknew that now, Sexta was female, this Manda Marluz. That's all he knew about her. Not that it mattered of course. Trash was trash. And until proven wrong, Manda was categorized as trash. Antigone was ready. He was ready to fight. He even figured how to give Manda one hell of a welcome when she arrived. Antigone hated to wait. And when he did, the person who made it so rarely got out in one piece. She wa wondering whether he should return to Las Noches and find and fight Manda there, when he picked it up. The scent of Arrancar, female. So, she did decide to come. "Imma kill that trash for making me wait.", said Antigone loud, frustrated and angered. This was bound to be bad day for Manda.
