As Ceon was in transit into Hueco Mundo, he could begin to feel the transition of his partner with him, but what was different was his method. Usually Ceon and his allies would transition in a Senkai Gate type of format to and from separated dimensions, but it would seem Izanagi found his own special method to transition from one place to another. While this was respectable, one thing Ceon didn't like was being the slow one. He was always considered one of the fastest in the Gotei in league of Yoruichi and many others, but his general speed was remarkable. Ceon wouldn't normally use Shunpo, but would use his own format of it instead known as Rift Jump where he'd utilize Kaizaken's electricity in his own plasma induced body, and would travel at a speed faster than lightning itself. This was not only what allowed Ceon speeds faster than any other, but would also be recorded as one of his most devastating attacks in the Shikai state, outside of his Omega Circles. Ceon started to glow as his entire body took the color of a pure white with blue and yellow accents, as if he was becoming lightning itself, as he suddenly bolted from his position, and went at a speed that the human eye could not even fathom. He darted from his position between realms, and ended up going so fast that he even left the transition dimension between point A and B that he just straight up bolted into Hueco Mundo light a straight lightning bolt, clashing with the sand of the very desert that made up the landscape.
Standing up now in a small crater, steam emitting from his body, Ceon looked at his feet to see that the Sand he had collided with had heated up so rapidly that it actually turned into glass. A smile formed on his face as he loved doing that, it was something he believed amusing that the elements could make such beautiful works of art when colliding with one another. Either way, within seconds from Ceon's arrival, Izanagi should be in tow, but Ceon left that to Izanagi while he didn't spare any time to begin his search for Takeshi. Ceon knew he couldn't search for Takeshi by the general method of his EMP wave or electrical surges due to the fact that the Hueco Mundo sands would straight ground out his pulses, so instead Ceon could only work in the method of his Aura of the Shamans. By doing so, Ceon would be able to read the flames of life around him, and sense where the locations of life was either moving, beginning, or ending to measure who and what was surrounding him.
As Ceon closed his eyes, he placed his hands together as he began to mentally become one with the elements and the world before him. To no surprise, Ceon couldn't speak with the sand due to it being the dead earth that was Hueco Mundo, so no surprise there, but the wind seemed to be alive, thus being able to communicate with Ceon, allowing him to hear its messages, but Ceon had no business with the air. Instead, Ceon wanted the heat, the fire that represents all life and death around him. As Ceon focused on tuning his aura to meet that function, he slowly transitioned back to remember the first time Ceon and Takeshi met.
It was from Ceon's first birth as a Memory Rosary in the plain of existence. Ceon and Senna were both being tracked down and hunted by the 1st Generation of the Gotei many years before the Quincy Purge and many other events took place which made things interesting. While Senna was having to fight off a couple Captains alone to better withstand their assault, Ceon was instead playing with most of them, thinking it was some sort of game! Captains that ranged from Yamamoto, to the first Kenpachi, and even Yoruichi's own ancestors. To Ceon, he was enjoying himself fighting 6 Captains at one time, just dodging and being the playful trickster he is, but that was all fun till Ceon and Senna were captured by Claire and the first Battle for Existence took place. Thankfully Claire was defeated back then, but Ceon and Takeshi didn't become well acquainted till Ceon's 1st Rebirth, and he was taken into the 4th Squad of the Omnitsukido. Even back then, Ceon was recorded as a famous Shinigami for being a Memory Rosary, and the hardest Squad Leader of the Omnitsukido.
Ceon was in the Omnitsukido under Yoruichi's command when the order from Central 46 was made to eradicate the Quincy Enemies. Originally, Ceon and his team were to deploy in Yoruichi's place as to not risk any political conflict with the Yoruichi Family, but Ceon was not going to lift his blade in the sake of Murder. Ceon didn't agree at all with the purge of the Quincy race, and even though Ceon didn't care for them, he would never condone senseless murder. So when the Purge was set, some of the first Gotei deserters were sent in to include Takeshi and Radioactive. Ceon of course watched with pain filled eyes to see what happened before him, as he could not agree with what he had seen. After the purge was finished, Ceon was disgusted with some of the orders by Central 46, and he couldn't trust them. It was weird however that not long after Ceon was promoted to 2nd Division Captain and Omnitsukido General after Yoruichi's departure from the Gotei. It seemed to be a happy trend of departing the Gotei, it's just too bad Ceon didn't do it till he was in the 0 Division.
Finally opening his eyes, Ceon had activated the Aura of Fire, allowing him to feel the Fire of Life from all living and dead beings around him, even his ally Izanagi that was nearby. It didn't take long however for Ceon to feel a GIANT pool of death in one section of Hueco Mundo that just screamed massacre. Now to Ceon, this could almost be anyone like perhaps his niece Ashlei Clixx, or perhaps it could be the very being they are in search of, so overall it was a gamble, but to Ceon, these gambles are what he lived for. With no hesitation, and the confidence that Izanagi can keep up with him, Ceon dug his right foot into the sand as he suddenly exploded from the ground outward, heading in the direction of the lifeless zone. As Ceon headed in that direction, his speed was around 200 miles an hour, as Izanagi and Ceon were quite far from Takeshi's suspected location, but it wouldn't take long to arrive to the area in question. As Ceon got closer and closer, he could feel from the lifeless area that there was one blip of life within the epicenter of the zone, saying that one being was alive and well, better fueling Ceon's thoughts of the fact that his target was in said location.
Now of course, to expect Ceon to just arrive is pathetic, as Ceon ALWAYS greets his allies with a hearty hello, and Takeshi was no different in Ceon's eyes. Takeshi was to receive the same welcome as the others, and Ceon had the perfect idea. Ceon stopped his movement from about 800 yards of Takeshi's position, and Ceon completely removed himself from the grid, thus becoming unsearchable from traces of energy. Now there was a reason Ceon was in the Omnitsukido, and the 2nd Division for so long, and that was due to Ceon's specialty within the Dark Arts, and his sense of stealth. To become unseen to the eye, and invisible to any radar was Ceon's specialty, as he was now going to play a little trick on Takeshi. Kaizaken manifested as to communicate to Izanagi what was going on, but Izanagi should expect something like this already from the man who's been around Shinigami for centuries.
"Ceon's going to give Takeshi a classic Shinigami welcome... You go ahead and follow along..."
As Kaizaken spoke, Ceon was already at work, as he summoned his Wakizashi and it glowed turning into a large 7 foot Bo staff. Ceon lifted the staff above his head as he began to spin it overhead faster and faster, creating a low pressure zone in the center of the staff, and creating a vortex of wind growing in speed. The wind became stronger and stronger as sand was swept into the growing vortex, creating a giant twister of sand that grew in size at not time at all. Ceon standing in the center of this giant sand vortex just smiled as this was going to be a lovely hello to Takeshi, and should hopefully turn his smug frown upside down! The Vortex took a height of about 1000 feet into the air, as Ceon deemed that high enough. Once ready, Ceon slammed the Bo staff down hard and powerfully causing a shockwave in front of him, and pushing that low pressure forward, abolishing the twister, and instead creating a giant sandstorm of considerable power and flying at a fascinating speed towards Takeshi. As it headed in his direction, Ceon was perfectly stealthed within the Sandstorm, heading to Takeshi's location with his eyes closed, and Aura of Fire on to perfectly pinpoint his location.
To go Rafiki on his ass, and present him with a lovely stick over the head!
Oh how quaint. Of course in the presence of power, the mice scurry from their holes in which to steal the precious piece of cheese. Little to their own knowledge though, the sandstorms that act as a rally cry to the weak hollow of Hueco Mundo, was instead a ruse. As the sandstorm grew in speed, gaining on Takeshi's location, Ceon kept his eyes closed with Fire on his Aura of the Shamans activated. As he stayed in the move, he could begin to sense the fires of life begin to grow in number, as it would seem the current horde of Hollow at Takeshi's location only grew in number as the Sandstorm represented some sort of sign to the local life of this ecosystem. Now of course, Izanagi decided to go for the passive route in which to proceed through the sandstorm as cover, and take place at the end of their route to wait for the show to end. It was good to know that Izanagi knew Ceon always meant no harm in his antics, and wouldn't be a spoilsport and ruin his fun.
As Ceon continued his approach, the Aura of Fire informed Ceon that a hollow was heading to his location at an alarming speed, as the additional hollow proceeded to appear in number from the growing tsunami of sand. 'A challenge?' thought Ceon to himself, as his Bo Staff disappeared into thin air, and Ceon's arms remained hidden within his own Shinigami top. For Hundreds of years, Ceon was in the Omnitsukido, and was even the 2nd Division Captain while the General of the Omnitsukido. In this time, Ceon's mastery over projectile weapons and accuracy were off the charts, being able to throw three kunai on target, atop one another, even splitting the one before it. It isn't known for metal to split, but with Ceon's power and deadly accuracy, nothing was impossible for the Memory Rosary. The Projectile Hollow was within 6 inches, as suddenly a small glimmer of light could be seen from Ceon's top, as suddenly 8 Kunai, one for each finger, shined in the light from above. 2 inches now, the Hollow was already dead, as Ceon punched the back of the hollow with his Kunai fists, while keeping momentum towards Takeshi. Not even 2 feet after punching the Hollow with his Kunai in the mask, completely shattering the thing from existence alone, Ceon twisted his torso for throwing momentum, as the Aura of Fire gave location to every hollow that was emerging from the raging sandstorm.
Releasing the Kunai from his fingers, the 8 went in all different directions, somehow landing perfectly between the eyes of 8 hollow who have managed to grow in lack of hindsight of the Sandstorm.
Target in sight...
Ceon now sensed Takeshi only a matter of feet from him, as now the fun began. As the Sandstorm blew overhead of the two, engulfing them from direct sight of one another, Ceon's energy remained completely invisible, as he was now overhead of the former Gotei member. With a simple throw of the hand, Ceon's hand came down from overhead of Takeshi, and simply flicked his forehead, as once contact was made, Ceon disappeared completely from existence. Moments later, the Sandstorm subdued itself and progressed on, to reveal two new beings to the area. Now, Izanagi had managed to make himself comfortable to Ceon's jokes in meeting Takeshi, while Ceon sat in the very same stop Takeshi was in for ages, sitting cross legged and with his arms coming out of the front of his top, appearing as if he was meditating. Ceon didn't look at all guilty of the joke of course, as his face was perfectly disciplined in the art of meditation, while Kaizaken went ahead to make his appearance known...
"Takeshi Yamazaki... It has been a while, has it not? Do you remember us?
Asked Kaizaken with his casual golden spark, in the appearance of a small golden lightning ball. Only very few have seen Kaizaken's true appearance, but most knew the little God of Storms as a small lightning ball. Of course, Ceon's ears were open in his "Fake Meditation" while he awaited for Takeshi to speak. Little did Takeshi know, Ceon wasn't here to toy with him or anything like that, but instead to invite Takeshi into a secret society that he was creating, and wanted to give both him and Izanagi more details into it, but before that, Ceon had to read Takeshi to see if he was still right of mind, or if he was so personally corrupt that he's grown blind in his past time ambition of personal retribution...
