HUECO MUNDO 2413 AD
400 Years of biological progress has forged that which Las Noches has become. During the recent reign of Ashlei Mischevang, a peculiar event caused the entire Hollow race to disappear off of the radar for several months, seemingly out of nowhere with little to no explanation. Then, during one summers day, the Hollows made themselves known again that brought along a seemingly different appearance and personality to the Hollows under Ashleis command. What the girl had done had changed the way Hollows were controlled and ruled over forever.
Las Noches during this disappearance was destroyed. Every ounce of sand and stone was levelled to the ground leaving absolutely no remains or evidence that it had ever been there. However, in its place grew a new structure known as 'Las Viviente'. During one of Ashleis incredibly complex experiments, she created a living mass thats sole purpose was to grow and nothing more. After a dangerous explosion that almost killed her, Las Viviente began it's growth.
Similar to a giant plant, Las Viviente grew from the remains of Las Noches, spreading its roots across as much of Hueco Mundo as possible. The plant grew skyward, forming the appearance of a huge tree-like flower exceeding 1000 metres in height with white stone and 5 gigantic petals giving it a windmill sort of look. After forming its gargantuan shape, the plant rooted itself into place and stretched its tendrils through the menos forest, latching onto every living organism. The huge petals of the plant glistened and pulsed a powerful energy that destroyed all eyes on Hueco Mundo. Any machines within Hueco Mundo deactivated and several others exploded from strain. This is what caused the black-out of the world. The trees in the forest slowly began to turn white in colour as well and even to this day Hueco Mundo is slowly falling prey to the gargantuan plant as it grows through the never ending desert.
The gigantic plant serves several purposes. It's abilities allow it to fulfil these purposes and it is given the orders to do so when the current leader of the Arrancar race communicated telepathically with it. The abilities are as follows:
Hueso Leno Skeleton: Las Viviente is built out of pure Hueso Leno, a special material crafted from mixing both wood, living bio-tissue from flesh, spirits and bones. The rapid growth of this material caused the plant to grow to a gargantuan size. Hueso Leno is also built to withstand attacks, making things built with layer upon layer of Hueso Leno such as Las Viviente incredibly durable. It is wise to note that the durability of this relies on the biological make up of flesh, blood, bone and stone in its structure. If a wall was ever knocked down, a thick layer of flesh would be seen spewing blood from within. Usually, open flesh in this state will try its best to reform with the rest of the parts cut from it or will regenerate a brand new one. This means destroyed Hueco Leno will regenerate just like an Arrancar would.
Mass Communication: The plant serves as a huge signal router that has access to everything with Hollow DNA that openly allows its mind to be tapped into. Using its seemingly hive-mind telepathy, the plant can gather information anonymously through any Hollow or Arrancar that processes information into their mind be it sensory or simple thought. The range of the plant is potentially unknown, but it has limited itself to only communicating between Hollows that are in Hueco Mundo. From this ability, Arrancar can learn the positions and actions of anyone inside Hueco Mundo regardless of position so long as the signals are not jammed by third party sources. These signals are created by generating smaller versions of Las Viviente that are no bigger than a car. These reflect movement patterns to Las Viviente of which reflects that data to each individual that is nearby. Looking around the open desert, smaller flowers can be found that resonate with this radar ability.
Mass Distribution: The plant has the ability, once it has openly chosen to communicate with an Arrancar, to send surges of telepathic data to them to inform them of information. However, the speed it sends the information at can be lethal. If used at massive speeds and in huge amounts, the data causes the victims brain to overload within seconds and literally detonate, cracking their skull open and spewing their brain across the sands.
Structure Growth: If you went to Hueco Mundo now, you would quickly notice the sudden amount of cities and villages that have cropped up from seemingly nowhere. These cities, buildings and other locations around Hueco Mundo are made of Hueso Leno that have grown out of the sands below. After all this time with Las Viviente around, the plant has been commanded to build specific buildings in a certain pattern. To those that entered Hueco Mundo, they would now notice that surrounding the plant for miles all around are Hueso Leno replicas of Las Noches. This area is now known as 'Las Rejilla' and serves to house its Army of Hollows and Arrancar but also to protect Las Vivente from harms way. Every building is white in colour and can be fitted with everything anyone could ever need. The plumbing works as normal, water flows from Las Vivientes body and tastes/feels just like natural h20, ornaments and furniture looks like their usual Las Noches selves and even the architecture resembles the original Las Noches.Just remember that the walls are biological and can stand up and walk off if Las Vivientte wants to.
Massivo Raudal: A very dangerous ability that can cause massive damage to giant threats. Las Viviente, when threatened, will uplift one of its roots and cause it to grow out of control. This growth generates hundreds upon thousands of tendrils the size of trains that dart towards the incoming threat and collide like a tidal wave. The more attackers, the more tendrils and size. The maximum length of the tendrils are not known but as they extend too far, they become slower and easy to dodge.
Ragnarok: When Las Viviente is threatened, the huge plant can activate an incredibly deadly ability that it uses to fight back. Like this, the plant shows off its living organism side by growing a constant fleshy body around itself to give it a very threatening serpent scale appearance. Parts of the plant then become very flexible and bends towards its foes before cracking straight down the middle, opening up to reveal a huge pair of jaws lined with hundreds upon thousands of rotating teeth like a shredder. Every single root can do this, including additional roots rapidly grown from it's body and even the entire stalk of the plant. if the stalk is split like this, Las Viviente loses the ability to command others and use its radar but becomes a colossal war machine, whilst still able to be commanded by the ruler of Hollows. The monster is capable of spitting out vast amounts of Oscuras Endriago from its mouths which are explained below.
Those that are deemed capable of utilising full control of Las Viviente find themselves compelled to visit the summit of the plant. Here, on a large platform of Hueso Leno is a passage to the heart of the plant. Upon entering a slimy doorway and travelling inside the plant, the summoned person would find themselves in a large chamber. The inside of Las Viventie looks like a human organ system. It is pink, bloody and pulsing blood instead of sap. In the center of this chamber lies a well protected shell containing two organs: A brain and a heart. These are both gigantic and both throb with the beat of the plants bloodstream. The shell sprouts small tentacle-like tendrils made of flesh that dig into the persons spine. The procedure then harmlessly interacts with their brain and takes a small DNA sample to recognise the user. With this complete, the user can command the plant to do absolutely anything within its power, even whilst detached. If the user becomes attached once more, any signals sent from them would be next to instant to whoever they wish to contact. They may also fully control Las Vivientte's bodily functions.
THE EMPTY EVOLUTION
The creatures that were dubbed as 'Hollows' were renown for being dumb, violent and numerous. Since Las Viviente was grown, the Hollows moved much more co-ordinated and attacked only when they knew they could win. Each Hollow seemed to know the position of another even without being able to see them. The beasts were agile and dodged attacks that they would never be able to see coming from their point of view. This is because the hive-mind of the plant was generating data between the Hollow army at such a pace that it could grant each individual Hollow foresight into everything in the vicinity making them much more likely to dodge attacks even in their blind-spots whilst other hollows are looking in that direction. If no hollow can see an incoming attack, none will know that they need to do to dodge it. This effect is also applied to arrancar and hollows-like character that las Vivientte considers an ally, allowing them to detect attacks much faster than they normally would as though their sense were superhuman.
A form of creature created from mixing part of Las Viviente with the sand of Hueco Mundo, similar to that of the sand guardian , Oscuras Endriago are a series of sand monsters that hide beneath the sands and lay dormant until needed or are spat out of Ragnarok mouths. These creature are technically Hollows, but are conjured through magical means that Las Viviente controls. When needed, the sand rises up and forms a dragon shape about the size of a large truck that takes off and prowls the skies. When possessed, the sand turns a dark black colour like ashes before merging into the dragon shape. These creatures have no mind of their own, but just like the Sand guardian, they cannot be destroyed by simply attacking them as they are built up of the sand around them. The dragons have several methods of attack such as charging into, attacking with limbs and biting (albeit all have no sharp effects as they are made of sand) but they can also generate sand breath for a short duration that blasts similarly to a cero, just made of sand as opposed to reitsu. After a few seconds of breathing generated sand, they start using their own body as the sand being thrown. This is a tactful method of attack as an Oscuas Endriago may breath themselves down pipes and through windows to minimise damage on the area whilst still attacking their fleeing target. The dragons may dive into sand and swim through the desert, somewhat like a shark on the surface. The size of the dragons can change as they absorb more sand into their bodies, but they cannot hold their bodies together if they double their originally generated size.
THE GRAVE DANGER
If at any stage Las Viviente's heart and brain are destroyed, absolutely everything is lost. The tree withers and explodes into sand, as does every building and structure connected to its main body. During its final moments, Las Viviente is instinctively designed to uplift itself and proceed to self-destruct with enough force to destroy every atom of it's body including buildings.
