|Subject Post 1Subject: Zeek Hoshigawa [Approved 3-3+] Fri Jun 28, 2013 5:31 am|| |
• Name: Zeek Hoshigawa
• True Age: Seven hundred and thirty-five
• Appearance Age: Twenty-seven
• Gender: Male
• Orientation: Freelancing
• Appearance: Zeek stands at a rather large six foot two, impressive for an Arrancar. His build is very small, and thin while also being toned out because of his excessive training. Zeek's skin tone is pale, much like his shinigami brother, Jin. This is due to him living in hueco mundo where it is forever night. His hair is a very straight, combed clean silver, about down to his ear in length. He has two silver eyes. These eyes almost look like they're completely and utterly devoid of life, but that is far from the case. Next we notice that on the side of his left cheek are the remnants of his hollow mask. This is in the shape of how he looked when he was a hollow. Moving on one will notice that his neck is also thin, more-so than one may expect with his small frame. He has no hair on his body at all except for the few strands of hair that are on his forearms.
Zeek's chest, and stomach are flat, and smooth while you can see his abs. In the center of his chest is his hollow hole which is no bigger than the size of a human baseball bat. Then, aside from everything we have already gone over, there are his legs. Toned, and also completely hairless, there is one remarkable thing and that is the long burn mark running up both of his calves. These come from his life as a newly formed Arrancar. Zeeks is a fairly plain looking man, and normally has a very stoic, calm look on his face.
Now we can talk about what this man wears, and this is where we get to really see a part of him as a person. He has two outfits that he likes to use around the human realm, and hueco mundo. Both of which he changes into while in the human world. Zeek likes to wear what most would typically associate with high school while in the human realm. A pair of blue pants. The sides of these are trimmed with blue and white running down the stitching. The shirt is all white, normally at least partially un-tucked in the front, while the top isn't buttoned all the way up. He also wears a blue blazer over top of that. This blaze is, like the pants, trimmed down the stitching with blue and white. The cuffs on both sides have two gold buttons. He wears a pair of blue and white dress shoes to match with his outfit. While he's wear this outfit though he tends to keep a smile written across his features, while his hair is messy and untidy.
Now, while this older looking man is in Hueco Mundo. This is where he keeps his hair tidy, straight, and clean. This is where he keeps his face stoic, and calm. His attire also drastically changes from his school uniform to a more battle ready uniform. The uniform is all grey with a bright, baby blue paint splatter running down the chest plate and the leggings. The chest plate, which protrudes slightly off of his shoulders, is worn by this man because the wilds of Hueco Mundo can be very dangerous. The leggings are one full piece that cover from his feet up to his hips, and these leggings connect to the top suit. There are multiple inks at the hips, knees, elbows, shoulders that allow Zeek to move without being hindered.
• Bone Appearance: On his left cheek Zeek has the remnants of his life as a hollow. However, unlike most hollow that turned into Arrancar, Zeek's mask broke off into a state that mimicks his hollow form. His long shaped head and the lack of eyes, and fangs to boot.
• Hollow Hole: Zeeks hollow hole is smack dead center in the middle of his chest like most standard hollow. His is roughly the size of a baseball bat at the large end.
• Reiatsu Color: Silver
Zeek has some very set ways that he acts. He tends to keep his cool, stoic and calm in almost all situations. He tends to use his mind to think out situations; This includes using tactics to win, or charming his way out of a fight, or even faking a strong threat. The latter normally doesn't work unless someone is less powerful than he is. On top of normally using his mind to overcome most situations, Zeek will also try his best to stay out of conflicts altogether. He detests the idea of war. This opposition to war is what led him away from the Espada and more toward a more singular life-style, fighting for himself, or contracts that he has taken for himself.
Zeek has a very strong work ethic. He never leaves a job undone, under any circumstance. There is but one thing that can change his mind about a target, or a job, but we'll cover that a bit later. Besides this one thing, Zeek believes strongly in never leaving a job undone. You work for your pay, and you work to keep yourself alive. He doesn't particularly like working for other people, but he doesn't have the influence, or the manpower to take over. Maybe one day when he does, he can start a revolution in Hueco Mundo.
Love has been nothing short of a mystery to this older Arrancar. He hasn't known anyone worth the time of day, mostly trying to survive. He isn't against the idea of finding someone to love, but he also isn't actively looking and he's fine with that. Perhaps one day when he's not constantly looking out for his life, or he's found what he wants otherwise, he'll try his luck at finding someone worth while.
Zeek has but one family member left, and he remembers everything from his past, to their heated arguments with him, to the flaming building that nearly killed them both. He has lived his entire life as a hollow, to his menos days, even into his Arrancar life. He has regretted everything from his human life and he wants to make amends with his brother, if he's alive in this realm. But by all instincts they should want to kill one another, should they ever meet. Should they ever meet, and should they not want to kill one another, his family is the only thing that could stop him from doing a job.
Hueco Mundo: Zeek is a very relaxed, calm Arrancar. He's not kind, but he's not mean either. He tends to keep a neutral standpoint on most things, but will sometimes diverge into a biased opinion should it involve his brother, or a friend. He can also get obsessive about his own work, and will tend to defend it to the bitter end.
Human World: In the human world Zeek is a very friendly, kind person. He's outgoing, and tends to keep peoples interest in mind. Should someone ever need anything, or want anything, he'll try his best at helping them out in anyway he can. Zeek will try and defend anyone that can't defend themselves.
Hueco Mundo: In this realm, Zeek shows nothing toward anyone. He doesn't hate, he doesn't like, he doesn't loathe nor love. He simply is with the others, and that has helped him survive so far. He has to keep his true nature, and personality locked away so not a single soul in Heuco Mundo thinks him weak.
Human world: While in the human world however, Zeek has many things he hates, and hates openly. He hates the strong fucking with the weak, while also hating the weak whining without trying to defend themselves. He always believes to at least try, even if it means getting beat, hurt, or even killed. You're here to live, and live you should. He also hates more of the mundane things in life, living fast, and partying hard is something he has grown a taste for. Finally, he hates ketchup. It gets so slimy, and disgusting.
• History: It was a cold, and murky August second. It had been raining all day, and the village had been going through some very rough times. Disease, Famine, and hardship was spreading over all the land, and it didn't help that there was one other thing to add to the list; the unplanned birth of Zeek Hoshigawa. His parents were well known hit men, having met on a job. The two of them felt like they were ready, but also understood what it meant to have a child, but nevertheless they loved him. Sadly, Zeek would have to work at a much younger age than most children, and that would make his life much harder than it needed to be.
Aside from the troubling times in the village, and the land, Zeek led a fairly normal, good life. He was a happy child, playing with his father, laying at bed time with his mother. The times were getting better, Zeek was getting smarter, and understood what he wanted to do; live and breathe the life of an assassin. Then at eight years old, his younger brother Jin was born. Zeek couldn't of been happier, a little brother, someone he could show everything he had learned too. That wouldn't be necessary though, and this would soon influence just how Zeek would come to view his brother in the future.
As the years past Zeek witnessed his younger brother becoming more and more like their father while Zeek started to fall behind. Sure, when he was thirteen he had made his first kill, but this was overshadowed by Jin's much better adaptability and his much better weapon skill. This started to drive Zeek crazy, he was torn between loving his younger brother, and trying to step into the light in front of his father. He didn't know what to do, how to do it, or when. This was all going to come crashing down on this young mans head when he finally did collapse.
Jin was getting all of their father's attention, and there was literally no time left for him. Jin was getting all of the gifts, he was getting all of the training, and he was getting all of the love. That was it, Zeek was going to put an end to this charade once and for all. Luckily for him he didn't have to go searching for his brother, instead he came looking for him; Jin wanted training, and this was going to be Zeeks best opportunity to take him down. As the training began, Jin had already noticed something was up, just another thing that Zeek hated about his brother. Jin had run inside, and Zeek gave chase. Using the shurikan his father had gave him, and the kunai he had pocketed from his mother, Zeek threw both of them at Jin. These were off course, probably due to Zeek's own lack of training, hitting the new gun powder his father had gotten.
The blade must have caused a spark to erupt, and because of this the powder exploded. The explosion had torn the house asunder, completely destroying everything, and sending the two boys away. Jin started crying, probably scared for his life. Zeek tried his best to stay stoic, and calm, to think of a plan to escape. This was becoming rather difficult as Zeek was running out of air, and the smoke was filling thee rooms. He started screaming as well, but it was too late, he had fell unconscious and only thanks to two men passing by were the boys saved. When Zeek awoke, he had seen that Jin was still sleeping, and he had told his parents everything. Jin was throwing the kunai, and shuriken, and that's what led to the home being destroyed.
As the years went by, Jin was sent away to get evaluated and cared for; getting over the traumatic experience like that was surely going to be enough to utterly destroy his brothers mind. And Zeek couldn't hope for anything more than that; he was getting the attention, training, and love from his parents. However much he loved this world, it was all a lie. Jin had gotten better, accepted what had happened, and came back to live with his family. Zeek was devastated, not by his return, or by his parents turning their attention back to his brother, but because of what Jin had said to him the moment he got home. "I'm sorry brother....I didn't mean to make the house explode...."
Zeek was destroyed, he didn't know what had drove him so strongly to destroy his brother, but that feeling was gone and now he couldn't feel anything but sadness and regret. He had told Jin to meet him by the new water fountain the village had installed. The reunion, the truth; Zeek was going to tell his brother everything. And yet, even this story was going to come to a tragic end. Zeek had gotten on the bad side of a couple of thugs the past few years, taking out their henchmen, their bosses, and taking their money. Even with the skill that Zeek had, he was only able to take one man out before the other grabbed him, and held him under the water. HE struggled, fought, but couldn't get out. He gasped for air, only for water to fill his lungs. He could feel it...Death was creeping up on his soul and he couldn't do anything about it.
Life onward - Life after death
"Am I dead?"
Zeek had no idea, he wasn't sure if he was dead, or if he had just gone unconscious. He saw Jin, and for a moment he was ecstatic, he was glad, but as he ran over to his younger brother, he just phased right through him. Then, as the realization set in, Zeek had broken down. Rage and anger was taking over, but so was sadness and grief. How could he have been so blind for so long? He wasn't a brother, he was a tyrant that had left this brother alone, now and forever. He wanted to tear this mans throat out, but he didn't need to. Jin, had killed the man, leaving Zeek with nothing left to do.
Zeek was ready to move on, he wanted to move on, but he couldn't. There was no door, there was no onward. There was nothing but here, and here is where he would stay. He would watch over his brother, and make sure that he was safe. And the years that followed, he had. His brother was strong, but another wave of disease was sweeping over the land. Zeek prayed to himself that it wouldn't be Jin, but it was. His death came swiftly, and unexpectedly. This news, it tore Zeek apart. What was left of his soul chain was utterly gone at this point and his body started to shift and turn. He was quickly turning into something monstrous.
His life had been turned flipped upside down. He knew what he wanted to know, but it wasn't what he felt. He wanted to feed, not eat...but feed. Feed on the living? No, they were too weak. Feed on the strong? No. They weren't what he wanted. Zeek, if he could even be called that at this point, wanted something like...himself. He wanted hollow...more and more hollow. He wouldn't find them here though, and so Zeek took himself to the world of the hollow. Hueco Mundo.
Entering the world, Zeek was drawn to a very familiar feeling. This was it, the hollow and there tons of them in this forest. Deeper he crawled until he was within the mass of them. This is where Zeek would find his latent power, and by feeding on these hollow, and feasting upon their essence, he would Ascend. The time spent here was almost endless, connected, Flowing together like it would never end. All of them, Zeek, these hollow, they all fused together, becoming one being, one giant beast. The mask had changed, there were no eyes like the other...menos grande. Yes...that's what he was. The mouth was large, with fangs protruding from outward.
Centuries had passed, and the hunger never ended. It had been taking over, and he fed more and more on other menos. The feast was delicious, but he still felt like he had something more to do. The willingness to feed, and the urge to continue was terrifying, but he wanted more power. He wanted to be the strongest menos he could be. So he fed, and fed, until one day he had changed again. He was getting an idea of his this game worked. He would feed until he couldn't feed any more, until the sensation was gone!
As an Adjuchas, he was shaped like a humanoid preying mantis. Blue in shade, and still lacking his eyes, he reacted and fought on nothing but instinct, the scent of others. These other Adjuchas though, they were tenacious, strong, and fast. Zeek was faster, stronger, and even more tenacious. Though it seemed like his rain as an Adjuchas was about to come to an end, when another Adjuchas, one also shaped like a preying mantis, but pinkish in shade, showed up. She had saved Zeek, and left him alive, un-bitten, on one condition; they would help one another.
Zeek agreed, and the two of them revenged Adjuchas for hundreds of years. They tore apart beasts, and humanoid hollow, until one day. The two of them met a woman. Her name escaped Zeek at the time, but she was powerful, and she led a group called the Arrancar. Hollow who had removed their mask to grow even more in strength. His friend, she loved the idea, but Zeek didn't. There was more to this form, more power. A disagreement here and shouting there, the two of them couldn't decide to agree. Zeek had decided to leave to find his own power. the two of them had gone their separate ways from that point on.
It was close to the current year when Zeek finally decided that he was ready for the next ascension. He was ready to become an Arrancar. He had told himself that he was going to do it not for her, or himself, but to one day find his brother and protect him the way he knew out. Strength, and ability. He wanted something else though; he wanted to keep something else. High-Speed Regeneration.
Zeek was alone, powerful in his own right, but alone. He didn't mind, and he was willing to keep it that way. And over the years he had developed his own powers, and learned some new ones. He was going to find his brother, and his long lost friend...but for now, he was just glad to be rid of that hollowvision.
• Sealed Zanpakutô: Zeek's sealed Zanpakutō is actually a combination of two daggers. These daggers are roughly one foot in length. The two daggers are fold-able and tend to stay in a large box set on either side of his waist. The curved nature of these daggers are mostly due to the three locking plates at the hilt, and then in the middle of the blade. The first dagger is coated in a blue shine, with the word Luz across the blade. The second dagger is coated in a white shine, with Vida across the blade. Each blade has three long points that extend from the initial blade giving it the ability to shred their innards like ribbon, while also cutting them.
• Racial Abilities:
Bala (虚弾 (バラ), Bara; Spanish for "Bullet," Japanese for "Hollow Bullet") a technique of firing his hardened spiritual pressure against his enemies. Less powerful than a Cero, but it can be successively fired at 20 times the rate.
Zeek's Bala: His Bala is a bright blue color normally seen with a white outline going around the accumulated energy.
Cero (虚閃 (セロ), Sero; Spanish for "Zero," Japanese for "Hollow Flash," "Doom Blast" in the Viz translation) a powerful spiritual light fired by Menos Grandes and Arrancar.
Zeek's Cero: Normally seen as an all white blast with blue outling the accumulated energy.
Descorrer (解空(デスコレール), Desukorēru; Japanese for "Loosed Void", Spanish for "Drawing Back/Opening"): A technique used by Espada-level Arrancar and sometimes others, to open a Garganta between the living world and Hueco Mundo.
Garganta (黒腔 (ガルガンタ), Garuganta; Spanish for "Throat", Japanese for "Black Cavity") is how Arrancar and Hollows are able to move in and out from Hueco Mundo. It is a spiritual pathway connecting the Arrancar's world, Hueco Mundo, to other worlds. Besides the World of the Living and the Soul Society, it can also open the gates of the Dangai and K-World. A turbulence of Reishi blows within Garganta. To move through it, travellers must create footholds using the Reishi.
Hierro (鋼皮 (イエロ), Iero; Spanish for "Iron," Japanese for "Steel Skin") An Arrancar's outer skin with high spiritual hardness that serves as armor.
Zeek's version: Zeek has a very strong hierro, slightly more powerful than the average Arrancar. This normally takes at least fifty percent more reiatsu exertion to cut through his hierro. This is due to his more defensive nature.
Pesquisa (探査回路 (ペスキサ), Pesukisa; Spanish for "Inquiry," Japanese for "Probe Circuit") An Arrancar ability to measure and locate spiritual pressure.
Sonído (響転 (ソニード), Sonīdo; Spanish for "Sound," Japanese for "Sound Ceremony") The Arrancar equivalent to a Shinigami's Shunpo.
High-Speed Regeneration Zeek, unlike most Arrancar, never gave up his ability to high-speed regeneration much like the Espada Ulquiorra from four centuries ago. He prefers to to stay alive, and having the ability to regenerate instantly in the middle of a fight was always appealing to him.
• Unique Abilities:
Transference: Zeek has the ability to transfer to another person energy, reiatsu, blood and the like through touch. This ability started to manifest itself when he was an Arrancar. He has since learned about it, never used it on anything. It's probably due to him keeping his ability to regenerate parts of his body at high speeds.
• Resereccion Name: Ciclo (Cycle)
• Resereccion Release Phrase: La vida y la luz se entrelazan (Life and Light entwine)
• Release Actions: After speaking the release phrase, Zeek takes both of his daggers, and tosses them into the air. Then, as they begin to decend he places both of his palms on the tips of the blades, and thrust his arms down, thus stabbing each palm with a single blade. Once this is complete his mask begins to glow a bright combination of white and blue as it overtakes his entire body.
• Resereccion Appearance: When zeek transforms into his Arrancar state he grows roughly by three feet, standing at nine-foot two inches. His legs up to his stomach turns into a very dark blue. On his stomah, coming from his ribs are four yellow lines, growing short in length as they get close to his waist. His upper stomach, and his ribs, as well as the outside of his legs are a very light blue. This light blue also covers his lower, under arms. The top of his arms up to his shoulders he is covered in a white, skull like material.
His face is a light blue, and his lips are normally up as he is almost always snarling. All of his teeth are sharp, thin fangs. His eyes are covered by a shingle large bone like material in the shape of a large crown. This is the most note worth part of his ressurecion, starting from his elbow all the way down to the gap in his pointer finger and his middle finger is a large gap. This gap can be opened to release to bone blades that are held together by the inside of his hand. The entire structure is part of his biology, so ripping these blades out is almost impossible. The middle of the blade is a hinge covered in muscle and bone. This allows Zeek to move these blades independently. Each arm has one of these blades inside of it.
• Resereccion Abilities: Heightened sense: Because Zeek loses his eyesight in his resurrecion state, the rest of his sense are increased ten fold. He can smell someone distinctly from over half a mile away. He hear someone from three-hundred feet away, all the way down to a vase hitting the floor. His sense of touch is magnified to allow him to react to the slightest feeling. This allows Zeek to react within milliseconds to anything touching him from a blade, even to a hair falling on his body.
This also heightens his sense to read and follow reiatsu. He can find someone from a mile away just by the feeling their reiatsu can give off.
Hojas Santa (Holy Blades):
Range: Five-hundred feet
Description: Hojas Santa, or Holy Blades is the one of two damaging attack in Zeek's arsenal, and his most powerful damaging move. By stabbing the ground with one or both of his arm blades, he starts the attack. By reading the movement in the ground, or the smell in the hair, to the sound anything makes, he is able to pinpoint the enemy and raise one or two blades under them(this is dependent if one or both blades are in the ground). These blades are roughly nine feet in height and five feet in width. They're in the shape of a single blade, no hilt or guard, just the blade of a sword. They can raise in any direction so long as they come from the ground.
This attack takes some minor concentration. If he rips his arm blades from the ground in the middle of one of his attacks the blades will dissipate into nothingness. This attack also forces a lot of energy to be used. He can use this attack three times in a single fight. This attack is equivalent to a level seventy Hadō piercing the body with incantation.
Hojas Santa Que Vuelan(Flying Holy Blades):
Range: Three-hundred feet
Description: This is the mobile, less powerful version of Hojas Santa. By placing both blades in their respectable arms, and raising his hands to face the enemy(s) with both bottom palms touching Zeek can create anywhere from two to six blades in mid air. These blades are roughly the size of a normal broad sword, and they can fly at the enemy anywhere from moderate to high speeds. (One rank less, or equivalent to his own general speed)
These blades also take Zeek to concentrate, and they require a little less energy than Hojas Santa uses. These blades can pierce the enemy, and will explode upon contact, or in the instant of touching the enemy. These blades explode with the force of a level thirty Kidō with incantation.
Description: This is an increased version of his transference ability in his sealed state. This enhanced ability allows Zeek to transplant limbs (no organs or head). This however forces Zeek to wait much longer to grow his own limbs back. (Six post, or a new thread)
This also takes Zeek and the other person to entwine their reiatsu to be synced, and takes roughly fifteen minutes to prepare(Three post). This also takes a large amount of energy from Zeek, and will normally set him out of a fight for a long period of time.
restauración aura(Restoration Aura):
Range: Fifteen meters
Description: So long as Zeek stays still, and focus his reiatsu in an aura that envelopes a fifteen meter diameter, he can heal the wounds of those around him. The wounds that can be healed vary on the length inside the aura and he cannot bring the dead back to life. This aura takes all of his concentration, and will sap him of his energy very quickly if he is not careful.
1 post: small wounds, inch deep cuts.
2 post: Large wounds, Deep gash in the gut, arms, and legs.
3 post: Near death state, puts Zeek out of commission for more the rest of the fight.
