Subject Post 1Subject: [INVESTIGATION] The New Espada? (PRIVATE) Wed 19 Jun - 1:03
Yet another day in the cold aura that shrouded Hueco Mundo. It seemed that this world was always cold, the world of the Hollow, at least to Alucard. The world where, over 400 years ago, the arrancar's and hollows had launched their assault on old-school Karakura with the lead of Aizen. And yet, it was surprising that not much had changed, at least Heuco Mundo hadn't. Even for someone like Alucard, who was such a recluse and shut off from the world at the time, knew of the war that was going on - yet had no interest in it. You see, the Aizen incident was nothing but crap, a useless existence compared to the grand scheme of things. And that fact that his 'complete hypnosis' wasn't even complete hypnosis at all was even more hilarious. Although, so much had changed in the world since then. The once battle ground where Ichigo and his allies went through, Las Noches, was largely the same. It still had the artificial sky, the artificial sunlight that pierced through the roof. It was a weird place, and yet, Alucard was drawn all the different locations to meet his nephew on a scouting mission for the Iramasha; and who better to pick for a scouting mission that a master of speed and an omni-potent creature of darkness? Nobody else, really. Although, currently it was only speculation into if the new Espada group had been formed, there was no hard evidence to actually prove whether or not this was true, hence why these two were to be sent. Although, for a master of speed, his nephew was outstandingly late Alucard had become impatient, as he normally worked alone. Although... where was he drawn to for this arrancar stake out? Hueco Mundo, without a doubt. He had heard about the potential of an arrancar base being set up on a newly created moon, something that was never seen to the world before. Such a base upon an artificial moon of Hueco Muno could have been quite troublesome for the members of the Iramasha, Gotei, Vizard Corps and all their allies.
The moon in Hueco Mundo had suddenly come out of nowhere. It wasn't like they needed a moon to begin with, yet there was no warning of it's creation, either. Compared to the Earth? This moon was no where near as big. Yet, there was said to have a base set up on it. And now, a possible new Espada organization sprouting a base among this moon? That sounds troublesome, not only for the rest of Hueco Mundo, but the Earth; it would give them a trump card. Alucard was simply resting on the sand in Hueco Mundo, hand in pockets and red hat tipping over his eyes. He yawned to himself momentarily, before tipping his hat up with his right hand to look for his nephew, Azure. Late... as always. Alucard disliked working with other people, for when he got blown apart in the combat or considered 'destroyed' they would freak out. And even then, if he was working with someone, it means that's another person he has to worry about. If it was anyone other than family, Alucard would be beyond caring if they were his allies, he wouldn't even help them. Although, blood ties were different. As long as Alucard lived, he was to protect the people he loved. And that was his family, of all things. The family he loved were there for him always. Alucard began to walk away from the meeting location, beginning to wonder if the moon would have a no-gravity effect like the human moon, not only this, but would one be able to breathe up there? Would they be able to breathe like they always can normally? After all, it is a moon. Even if this was the case, the moon without air wouldn't stop Alucard; after all, suffocation was not one of the methods in which it would kill Alucard or take a life away from him.
As he walked, he became curious however. If there was some form of 'New Espada' base built up upon the new moon, then how was it only noticed now? It was something that was completely unorthodox and random to build it on a moon high up above the original area for Hollows to wander. "Hurry up and get here Azure, I'm not going to stay here and wait for you much longer." The Iramasha's voice was deep, trembling; trembling enough to rattle the very ground through his feet. While it was true that Alucard was, possibly, on the weaker end of those on the same power as him, his power was beyond anyone else's. His reforming and regeneration was something that had made him so powerful in the first place. Although, despite his speed not matching other people, or his strength or anything like that, his punches, speed and wits were nothing to be laughed at. After all, Alucard Iramasha was living proof that strength or speed didn't mean everything; but smarts and what you did with those powers you have that counted. Depending on what they found on the moon, if the rumours of a new Espada setting up a base on the moon was true, what occurred on this 'scouting mission' could very well be quite destructive to the new moon and the people living there. Something was going to happen, it was only in time that they'd find out what. So he waited for Azure, eventually deciding to meet up with him on the surface of the moon if he could reach it. Scratching his head, Alucard would simply stand off from laying on the sand, the sand falling off of his red outfit. Within a moment, he would bend his knees and launch off into the sky at intense speeds, once reaching around a hundred metres into the air; disappearing into a chaos warp. Within the blink of an eye, Alucard would appear right before the moon, an aura shrouding the outside of it.
Tapping his finger against it, a spark of energy quickly flew off, zapping the air around Alucard was well as his finger. Sighing, Alucard reached up to his hat; simply throwing it aside with a wild smirk shrouding that face. Whoever set up this base sure did know how to keep people out... although failed to keep people such as Alucard out. Pulling his right arm back, the devil Iramasha assistant would jerk his entire fist forward, hand coiled up, sending a power shock wave through the air, cracking the barrier by forcing his reiatsu and all amount of energy into the punch, to purely split open the barrier in an instant. The punch would be loud enough to launch out a crack as if thunder has struck their location, breaking the sound barrier instantly. The punch, once completed, instantly ripped open a span of one hundred metres in the barrier, allowing a manner of creatures to enter along with Alucard, if they so wished. Although, it was unclear how long the crack in the barrier would stay open and if it would stay open in time for his nephew to follow through. As he wandered through the barrier, his eyes shot to the canons resting among the defences all around the moon. Without a doubt, the noise and crack of the barrier would have drawn attention to whoever was here, so Alucard prepared for the assault. Whoever was taking up residents of this new moon would come to greet Dracula, without a doubt. And whoever it was would soon find themselves having a tough time to against Alucard if it went into the event of a battle erupting.

Azure stifled a quiet laugh as he continued to his make his way slowly through the motions of paperwork. He knew that today was the day that he and his uncle, Alucard, were meant to investigate Hueco Mundo for some news of a new Espada beginning to form, but the Paperwork for the matter had to be finished. Alucard failed to realize that if they did not fill out the appropriate paperwork for the investigation, they could easily be in trouble with the island itself if they were to start a war or fight of some sorts with those from Hueco Mundo. "Ugh, this is a damn bother. Why do I have to be the only one in this god forsaken family to actually do what he was told?" Sighing, Azure stamped the last of the paper work as he dashed through the offices of the Royal Village, placing the paperwork on Senorn's desk while booting his way out of the area. As he stepped through the entrance to the Royal Iramasha Village, his body had glowed a bright white as it began to vanish, reforming in the dark, night time world of Hueco Mundo.
Quite the world, Azure thought to himself. A Moon in the air, pitch black sky that seemed to reach on forever, his own body being miserably small compared to the world around him. The white, rich sands of Hueco Mundo moved with every single step that Azure had taken throughout the area, leaving foot prints in the sands that had once been walked by Ichigo and his allies. Yes, the war between Shinigami and Arrancar quite some time ago resulted in Ichigo Kurosaki and his fellow allies to take charge and save a miss Orihime Inoue, who Azure knew nothing about. This was simply a story that was told to those on Iramasha Island since Kurosaki was seen as some powerful person. Tch, Bet I could take him. Azure wasn't quite keen on the idea of others being regarded as such powerful beings when they hadn't even shown him their strength for themselves, it was so misleading and bothersome to hear it from some other person. Besides, Azure HAS always had a thing with how powerful he himself was compared to others. It didn't matter if he was stronger than someone, or if he was weaker, training is something that is always an option if it means he can fight for what he believes in.
On the note, Azure looked into the sky, focusing on the Moon above. It wasn't as Large as earth's own moon, but it was larger than he was obviously. From just looking at the moon, he knew that both he and Alucard were asking for trouble when it came to investigating these new Espada. Hell, for all he knew, they could possibly encounter the leader of these espada, and to think an Organization leader is some push over is such a huge mistake. "Ugh..." Azure groaned as he twisted his foot into the ground, causing the sand around him to compile on his right leg. If there truly was a base on this moon for these 'New Espada', Azure would need to make his way to the moon none the less. By pushing off from the sand, the area around his body condense greatly as he was sent flying through the air at high speeds. In mid-flight, Azure focused a small amount of Chaos Energy into his body as he were to chaos warp through the air, appearing on the far back side of the moon. Now, Azure knew that Alucard had gotten here before he did, but where could that damn Uncle of his be currently?
Boom. A large crack of thunder could be heard all throughout Hueco Mundo as Azure sighed, the barrier before him seeming quite stable, that is, the area in front of him. For some odd Reason, Azure knew that Alucard must have broken through this thick as hell barrier on the other side of the moon. Fucking Idiot. Chaos warping once more, Azure's body reformed beside his fellow Family Member, as he waved nonchalantly. "Sorry I'm late, you know that if I didn't say back to write out the paper work, it wouldn't have gotten done. Then we'd be fucked. Also, don't you think you could be a tad quieter in this place? You never know what the hell we're going to face." He was blunt with his uncle only due to the fact that he knew his uncle would understand. If he were to talk to any of his other family like this? Well, they'd react like bafoon's or idiots. The area that seemed to have been attacked by Alucard was now completely destroyed, a large separation being visible throughout the Barrier. Along with the rest of the barrier that still surrounded the Moon, there were a great number of cannons that littered the surface of the moon, whatever the hell was set up here was a secret, or rather, guarded at the moment. Casually beginning to make his way within to the surface of the moon by his uncle's side, Azure began to speak. "Okay. I just want to get this out of the way, because we need a game plan. This is what we know so far, there is a possible base for the 'New Espada' of Hueco Mundo currently being held on this moon's surface. Along with that, we know that there is an unknown threat to these Espada because we have little to no information on their group entirely. I say we go guns blazing if we get attacked, although if we don't get attacked, maybe we should simply talk to whoever we encounter in this base. I know that you probably don't care about what I have to say, but it is what it is. Let's just make sure we don't cause too much of a ruckus before running into anyone serious, it'd be stupid to allow ourselves to be caught right off the bat." With that being said, Azure simply continued to walk, expecting nothing more than a fight to be held on this moon within Hueco Mundo, the world filled with nothing but White Sands.

"Sir...there appears to be a disturbance in Hueco Mundo. Two powerful foreign entities have just entered the Southern sector."
"Yes, I know....I could sense them from here. Do nothing. I have a feeling they will come to us."
After alerting the man sitting on a throne atop a massive staircase, the intelligence officer quickly slipped away and returned to his post in one of the many sensory towers located on Hueco Mundo's primary moon, which served as the primary headquarters of the new Espada which had formed recently under the banner of a rather powerful Arrancar. At the center of this headquarters was Los Viejo, an ancient city-castle that had previously been located in Hueco Mundo itself, not on some strange moon that seemed to have a sense of artificiality about it. Within Los Viejo was a primary structure, and further within that structure was a massive hall consisting of a throne atop a steep staircase, and a long table with ten chairs. Everything about this castle seemed.....old. As though it were made so long ago, it itself was foreign in modern times. It especially seemed strange on a moon, however this moon was very special. Very special indeed,
This moon was indeed artificial, as it had been created by the same man who had united hundreds of thousands of Hollows and Arrancar and now led them under one banner. This man didn't rule with an iron fist, and he didn't rule like a king at all. Nay, it was the Espada who ruled, not just one man, and that was exactly what he wanted. He was tired of the days when a single entity led the entire race of Hueco Mundo, so he decided to oppose the old order and eventually destroy it. In fact, his primary goal was to eliminate Ashlei Clixx and retake all of Hueco Mundo, as he only ruled about half of it at the moment. But the day would come when he ruled it all......but who was this mysterious man? Who could so successfully lead a revolutionary movement against the previously established order? Most Hollows knew him simply as Pain, and considered him to be a god among their species, especially due to the fact that he was able to recruit powerful entities like Coyote Starrk and Verathius. However, Pain was by no means his real name.
Nagato Tengan was bothered by the fact that Iramasha had impeded upon his territory in Hueco Mundo. He did not care for Iramasha, and did not even wish to interact with them. They were a nonentity to him, beings he couldn't care less about. However, it seemed they cared about him and the new Espada he led enough to send two of their strongest to either investigate or assault him, however Nagato knew nobody in their right mind would openly assault an unknown entity like the Espada without sending an army, or even at all. They were likely a scouting party, or at the very least diplomats. Either way, Nagato was not surprised in the least bit when one of them attacked the barrier protecting the moon from outsiders and put a small hole in it, and still unsurprised when the second Iramasha followed after. That barrier isn't meant to prevent people like them out if the power is less than 10% anyway....well, they'll be repaired soon. As Nagato finished his thought, the barrier was, in fact, regenerated after less than 60 seconds. Nagato then spoke to an Arrancar clad in full armor next to his throne.
"By now the defense systems are already ready to eliminate the trespassers, but tell the men in the control towers to hold their fire. I shall meet the heathens personally."
"Aye aye, sir."
From his position atop his throne, Nagato Tengan immediately vanished from sight, with not even the token buzz indicating the use of the Arrancar movement technique Sonido. Above the heads of Alucard and Azure, the two Iramasha would likely notice the quiet sound as the barrier they had just broken through seemed to be repaired mere moments after they touched down on the surface of the moon. And soon after this, they would also likely notice the sudden appearance of a man who seemed out of place in the seeming ghost town that was their current location. He would seem even more out of place as he stepped out of the shadows, as he was wearing a long black robe with small red clouds scattered across it, and a collar that reached the tip of his chin. His hair was a deep crimson, though it would be difficult to see in the darkness, however one thing did seem to penetrate the shadows: his glowing, purple, ringed eyes that seemed to possess an odd danger about them. After making his presence known, he began to speak.
"Tell me....what are two Iramasha royals doing this far in Hueco Mundo? What purpose do Alucard and Azure Iramasha have in coming here? Is it diplomacy? No....I do not suspect diplomats would use such barbaric methods to enter. It seems you are scouts of sorts, come to survey the unknown. While the Iramasha are not my primary target, it is rather troubling that they would make me theirs. Speaking of myself, I do not I have introduced myself. I am Pain, god of Arrancar and Cero Espada. Now......let's get down to business."

Subject Post 4Subject: Re: [INVESTIGATION] The New Espada? (PRIVATE) Fri 21 Jun - 6:23
The moon that was here was nothing short of interesting. After all it had all the characteristics of the Earth moon, it looked rather similar. The moon had been here since Ichigo and his friends came to save Inoue Orihime, true, but there was something that was oddly disturbing. As soon as he had come into contact with the barrier guarding the moon, he knew it was not a normal base. It was set up on rather interesting defences; and that wasn't the most disturbing part of it. The disturbing part? Was when you entered, the heating felt like it dropped. He didn't know why, or how, Heuco Mundo got colder; but it managed it. It seemed colder than outside and more more of a dense feeling in the air. Whoever had set up this arrancar base on the moon had quite a bit of knowledge in their technological advances, there were amazing defences set up. Alucard has lowered down to the surface of the moon, his feet plantly ever so softly onto the ruffled surface, his eyes quickly scanning back up to the canons that were sprouted upon a wall, mounted against intruders if they were to enter. Yet... it didn't attack? That was the most interesting aspect of it. Yes, it was a base built against intruders such as The Count; yet they hadn't actually fired? Why? With the large crack that Alucard let off from the punch, there was no way that anyone in the dome of energy could have been oblivious to an intruder.
He began to walk softly on the surface, his feet kicking up strands of dust as he kept himself pinned to the surface of the moon with his feet tightly gripping it. Even if there was no gravity on this moon, it wouldn't effect Alucard in the slightest. One of the greatest attributes that the Devil Iramasha had was his ability to walk on almost any surface, no matter the angle, texture or even temperature of it; he'd be able to walk on it. Not only this, but one of his major abilities in sealed state was to completely pass through objects, intangibility. At any rate, the moon glistened with an eerie silence. Something that was not expected from such a place, a base of enemies typically would be rustling with energy, building, construction and even the aurora of people chatting. Yet there was pure silence for the time being. Even for someone like Alucard, it seemed eerie. "I dislike this place already, they know I'm here." It was obvious. At any second, he assumed someone was going to jump him; try to cut his head off, stab his heart; set him on fire. Or perhaps all of these at the same time? Never the less, he continued to wander through this place, the creaks of silence still haunting him, yet it was kind of beautiful at the same time.
Alucard shifted his head to the side for a moment as Azure quickly shot through, landing beside the count with a small thud. Quickly he shifted his vision back to in front of him, continuing to walk, his black long hair blowing in the breeze, losing his red hat earlier on. Each hand was placed in either pocket, either pocket having a gun in each. In the right pocket of his red coat, Jackal, his black gun that was capable shooting off compressed exploding rounds. In his left? Casull, his silver gun that was capable of shooting rounds coating in pure flames; being able to pierce anything it came into contact with. Dracula's head shifted to his nephew now, addressing his question as to how he could have been more silent to enter."There was no way else to enter. See the barrier I knocked that hole in? That's the only way in. It formulated of pure energy; if you touch it, the base will be notified. If you punch a hole in it like me; they know someone's here. Whoever built it has quite good knowledgeable in their area." All of this was drawn from simply touching the barrier earlier. The barrier was built to keep out smaller, weaker beings than Alucard and Azure. There was no way that there wouldn't be an alarm attached to something like this. Keeping his attention focused on Azure, his mouth opened and spat out a few more words. "It's obvious, really. There is no way to enter this base without causing a ruck-us. I'm all for negotiations, however if things go sour, just don't get in my way."
As he finished his words; a cold aura shot over his shoulder. Without even nudging a muscle, his ear softly perked to listen into the words that were being coldly expressed across the moon. It was dark here, and yet this figure was even darker. As soon as he had shown up, the air felt much heavier; the very person who stepped from the shadows revealing himself to Azure and Alucard. He noted himself as Pain. Pain? That was a title, not a name. Pain... He had heard it before. He had heard hollows mention him before, too. The conqueror of the Espada, establisher of a new order, which was only speculation. As he said his title, the 'cero espada', all of the confusion, all of the possibilities that were forming of a new Espada being created had finally come into reality. There was a new Espada and 'Pain' was leading them. He knew who he was, he'd be a fool not to know. It was true that the Hollows and Iramasha didn't have much to do with each other most of the time, but they were still very much enemies and hostile towards each other. With a tilt of his body, he twisted his head around along with his body to face the figure, his purple eyes hazing from the shadows.
"Nagato... Never thought I'd have to say that name out loud of face you, 'Pain.' Tell me, what do you have to gain from ruling over this moon and Hueco Mundo? You say that we're not here for diplomacy, yet you do not know me at all. How do I know that? Because I don't even know me." A small laughed erupted from the Count, his body rattling with his deep voice, his dark hair blowing all over the place. His head turned once again to Azure, a simple nod, then looking back towards Nagato. "I assume we have no choice but stand our ground against this guy. Be cautious, my nephew... he had a whole landmass behind him here; followed by an army. We are but two people. He's been working on conquering the Cero Espada even before Ashlei had disappeared and went to Shadow Fall." Raising his right hand to his chin, he turned his head and cracked his neck twice on either side. For this time, there was but a silent aura. He was worried that Azure would take a drastic action on the arrancar before them, rather Alucard wanted to wait until Pain had struck first. For that was his use most of the time; his powers allowed him to study the abilities, powers and even personality of his opponents. If Alucard could provide himself as bait, perhaps it could allow them time to study exactly what this man was capable of; if it came to the fighting aspect of this meeting.

As per the usual procedure of investigation's that were meant for recon or negotiation, both Alucard and Azure continued to make their way into thase of whatever the hell organization was here. It was quite simple at this point, to be honest. Azure and Alucard Iramasha were both on guard due to a possible New Espada being located on the moon in Hueco Mundo, a desperate time to find enemies or allies it seemed for the Iramasha, that, or they simply wished to figure out what they were up against. The moon itself was quite impressive. The air around Azure seemed to be of some sort of artificial creation, at least this is what Azure had felt. The moon was made, not simply placed here. Someone actually created the moon that both Azure and Alucard were making there way farther into, this seemed to be quite the feat for anyone of power. It was.. frigid, to say the least. Azure could simply breath and a steam of sorts filtered from his mouth, the air radiating from his mouth hot enough to clash with the freezing air to create the steam. Tch.. Who the hell made this insane thing?
Eventually making his way to the surface along side his Uncle, Alucard Iramasha, Azure firmly planted his feet into the surface of the moon after quite a lot of stumbling and tossing around, the gravity on the moon itself seeming to be non-existent. Shifting to look around, Azure began to take in his surrounding area to figure out what was currently going on. From the looks of things, the world around him was filled with security, to be more specific it was filled with cannons that seemed to be in place to keep intruders like himself and Alucard out, or at bay to say the least. Although they were there.. none of them were currently firing. This confused Azure greatly, the idea of two high-leveled Iramasha stepping foot on the moon that held some type of base, and yet their defenses did nothing but stand by and watch as they continued to make their way deeper into moon? This made no sense at all.. not to Azure at least. "Uncle.. I don't like the feeling that this place gives off. This.. isn't how it's supposed to be." Alucard responded with a simple response, he disliked the entire place. He just knew that he disliked how everything felt to him and how everything was currently happening. With that, they both simply began to walk forward without saying much until Alucard decided to speak up.
"There was no way else to enter. See the barrier I knocked that hole in? That's the only way in. It formulated of pure energy; if you touch it, the base will be notified. If you punch a hole in it like me; they know someone's here. Whoever built it has quite good knowledgeable in their area." Azure knew that, he really did, but therre was still no needed to make such a thunderous clap. Maybe if he condensed his energy better or directed the energy outward in a specific way, just maybe that clap may have not occurred. But as of now, it meant nothing to both Azure and Alucard, an abnormal breeze filtered quietly through the air as Azure simply stared forward, his Uncle's gaze focused on him yet he knew of what was behind him.
A man standing of at least taller than Six foot stood quite a ways across from both Azure and Alucard, within the darkened part of the moon. The aura that the male exurted was cold and dark, a sinister air seemed to radiate from the male's pores. This was the one and only Pain. Azure had heard of him before, hollows that tried to invade Karakura spoke of how there was a new leader of the Espada, a New Espada that is. He was a fearsome man, a man that seemed to be able to stand the test of time and conqur whatever was in his path. Speaking those simple words, a Title, 'Cero Espada'... Azure knew at this single point that this guy was in fact the leader of a new founded Espada, one that the world did not know of fully until this exact moment. Grimacing, Azure's body tensed and began to exert its own power, his eyes seeming to fixate all the male that went by Pain.
"You make quite the assumption when first meeting a few guys, don't you 'Nagato'? You simply assume that my uncle and I come here to reek havoc or scout for the Iramasha, but what if that weren't true? I'm not saying you're wrong, but I'm not saying you're right either." Azure watched as his uncle spoke calmly, referring to the male as Pain yet knowing that his name was Nagato. He turned to Azure for a moment after a small pause in his own voice, nodding at him. Azure knew what this meant, and he didn't like this. He couldn't engage, he couldn't do jack shit until Nagato was the one to intitate them both. Fuck.. "We did not make you nor your organization of new espada our primary target, don't speak as if you knew exactly we came here dammit! You simply took control of a new Espada and expected no one to come and investigate these claims that people have made? For a Cero Espada your assumptions are quite off.." Even though Azure was making an attempt at being civil, the male did nothing but piss him off at this point...

As the two intruders upon one of Hueco Mundo's moons responded to Nagato's short speech, Nagato scanned their faces and bodies for any possible sign they may be up to something. The way Nagato had spoken to them earlier was, of course, baited; utilizing such a method of speech, he was trying to see if either one of the Iramasha royals would respond aggressively. He gained a small bit of information from speaking in such a way, as he quickly learned that the Devil Iramasha he knew to be directly related to Ketsu Iramasha was, at the very least, able to control his annoyance or anger more than his relative Azure Iramasha. Such information could potentially be useful later on, and perhaps even in a short amount of time if he played his cards correctly. For now, however, he was engaged in psychological warfare with his two young opponents, and the winner of this match would gain the advantage should things actually turn physical, which was very likely indeed. After both Iramasha said their pieces, Nagato decided to wait a few seconds, leaving them in total and absolute silence which only seemed to further the sense of dread this unholy place exerted, and then finally respond.
"You do not even know yourself, yet you come here to learn of the unknown? Your priorities don't seem to be in good health. Wouldn't you say it's strange you tell me I assume too much, yet you tell the boy next to you to be ready to stand your ground against me? For all you know, I may want to ally myself with the Iramasha. We are both powerful groups of powerful individuals who would immensely bolster each other's forces, and we even share a common enemy: Demons. The land you step on now was of my personal creation many years ago, which proves I'd make a good ally in your battle against Mana Asthavon. Perhaps...." Nagato's bright purple eyes glowed in the darkness, and the light being reflected off the various pieces of machinery surrounding the trio slightly lit the area leaving an ominous haze. As his speech trailed off into silence, the Sage Arrancar closed his eyes and dropped his head slightly, his face now facing the ground while being covered by the collar of his robe. He remained like this for a short moment, however during this eery silence a strange wave of very dark, very heavy spiritual pressure was released from the man, which quickly coated the entire vicinity in its dreadful pressure.
"............Perhaps not." As Nagato finished his earlier thought, he raised his head so that he was facing the two Iramasha, and then snapped his eyes wide open. However, his eyes were completely changed. Instead of being completely purple with black rings, his eyes were now a deep crimson with jet black pupils and tomoe surrounding said pupils. The difference between these eyes and the previous ones he possessed seemed to be the darkness that emanated from them. By simply gazing into his eyes momentarily, it would feel as though absolute darkness was sucking everything in and crushing it into nothingness; such were the effects of Nagato's eyes in their more advanced state. Also, if either Alucard or Azure actually stared into the Arrancar's eyes, they'd see strange afterimages of him next to him and behind him that seemed hazy, yet somehow even more sinister than the man himself. Something seemed to have changed about Nagato, and for trespassers who had decided to intrude upon his land, something for the worse.
Immediately after revealing the new form his eyes had taken, the ground beneath the three began to rumble and shake slightly as though something serious were beginning to happen, and in fact, something was happening. All of the machinery surrounding them seemed to begin to turn on as engines roared and metallic devices seemed to start shuddering. Quickly after this, every single piece of machinery seemed to start moving away from them, being pulled by something unknown to the Iramasha. The surroundings changed so quickly that in the span of just a few seconds, Alucard, Azure, and Nagato were left in a barren section of the base that seemed completely empty. It even somehow seemed.......colder. It was as if what had just barely made it seem as though they were still somewhere physical and relatable was now gone, and they were now left in the empty void of space with nothing but the land beneath their feet to hold on to. This seemed to have happened for no reason, however it may occur to the intruders that the only things that had been moved were things that could potentially be damaged should combat break out. It was as if Nagato were preparing for something....
"This is my land you have stepped on. Do not think I will allow you to leave after corrupting the Moon I have created with your toxic impurities. Iramasha....such a young, filthy species. Your entire species has only spanned ten thousand years, less than half only my lifespan, and yet you dare enter this ancient realm? Ants should know their place in the cosmos, but it seems I must teach it to you!"
