Artist: N/A - Song: N/A - Word Count: 1546


- Name: Desmond Marcus Erasmus d'al Cunaris ae Hayden
- Titles: King-Militant, Grandmaster of the Order of Saint Marcus.
- Gender: Male
- Appearance Age: 24
- Age: 428
- Affiliation/Rank:[Lux Orior] Support and Defense Chairman [Vastime] King-Militant, General of the Unified Forces of Vastime

- Appearance Description:



Desmond Hayden for all extensive purposes has the body of a warrior or even gladiator as many people have commented, this can be a blessing and a curse due to the constant thought he is more muscle than speed or brains which is actually not true at all. Due to his his high impact no holds barred training it has developed his body to almost peak physical condition without any augmentations most of the time. This is certainly useful when it comes to combat and his own unique style of fighting but his muscles arn’t the only part of him, standing at a odd five foot eleven one could say he is shorter than most of the physical fighters in the world but this hasn’t stopped his bark from being as bad as his bite.

It’s also noteworthy to know his body type is almost a picture perfect mesomorphic type with only a little bit more influence in the upper half that’s rarely noticeable unless you are taking his measurements. This makes it easy to find something to wear for him thankfully. Once you pan in closer for a deeper look into his body you may notice it adorned with series of scars in every which way that all looked to be moderately healed by this point but it’s rare for a new one to appear on his body mostly due to his healing factor, the scars that he has accommodated sense his healing factor are more symbolic because he allows them due to significant events are they where inflicted so bad his healing cannot fix them. As for body fat? Pft on this man damn near non-existent.

Hayden’s hair is usually a spiked messed due to his rare care of it, at most it’s combed or brushed to straighten it but it usually ends up ruggeded and spikey to say the least. It adorns the color of raven black just like the rest of the hair on his body, he likes to maintain good hygiene so he doesn’t let hair grow out to crazy proportions choosing to keepy body hair close to the body. His facial most of the time is a rugged five o’clock shadow he can’t bother to shave and at longest a small beard if he truly can’t find the time after a week or two.

A signature mark one should note of Hayden is the horizontal slash across his nose that has been there as long as he could remember, if asked about it he simply chuckles shrugging it off moving to some other task. His face is hold a strong jaw something that adds to the ‘hero’ vibe people usually associate with him, holding mostly normal features one should expect from that of human birth before. It is worth knowing that his eyes are typical a light brown/hazel depending on the light but when he enters into a state of battle or excitement they turn a deep maroon color in the irises.

When it comes to Hayden clothing and outfits it’s rare to find him outside of two or three outfits to be frank, we will be covering his small wardrobe. Hayden first outfit is the shinigami robes he couldn’t bear to part with but these garments are the typical black just like every other shinigami but not as loose, in fact they stick close to his body. He usually keeps it open displaying his torso to the world, allowing one to see his pants are kept up by a white sash. The arm sleeves of his torso are ripped off clearly from the torn edges of the cloth garment. It is important to note the red scarf around his neck as this will rarely not appear on him.

His second outfit is his combat attire which consists of a set of heavily augmented armor pieces he inherited from his family. The armor consists of two pauldrons that are three plates fused together to add mobility to himself, his torso armor is a simple metal chest like vest that fits right over his head similar to that of spartans from ancient greece, followed by this is the exact same design for his pauldrons but on his outer thighs. Finally on his right hand is a gauntlet that act as a grip for his sword but ends turns into slight claws finishing his set of armor, under this armor he usually wears some type of comfortable clothes. His scarf is event more prominent here as he attaches a clip usually a indicator of his lineage something he inherited from his family.

» Inner Hollow Description:

The Hollow wears Hayden black shinigami outfit although just like him the sleeves were torn but unlike Hayden his whole uniformed seemed torn from the constant battles with his Zanpakutō spirit. Hayden eyes trailed up from his feet seeing it wore no shoes or sandals, sharp skin shredding claws where it's toenails should have been seemed to be a side effect of the Hollowness. It's white hierro legs defined from the holes in it's clothes with each muscle seemingly lined in the hierro, once you got to it's stomach however it seemed to keep Hayden definition of muscle yet was much more lithe than him. It's hollow Hole was located where his heart was supposed to be apparently maybe a indicator of Hayden dark nature within his own heart. It's hands held the same claws it's feet had but with black lines running in a spiral motion down his sword hand that seemed to form some sort of whirl or vortex. As you finally reached it's head now it was time to see the Hollow in it's full glory; it's face was covered by a mask that seemed draconian in nature with horns jutting from the edges with a red pattern similar to a arrow running down where it's nose might have been and the red running around the eye. Yet it's free hand came up to the mask removing it effortlessly by sliding it up now that Hayden could see it's face it held vague resemblance to him yet.. It's general appearance seemed more like a Vasto Lorde than a inverse look of himself. In fact if Hayden was a Hollow this might be what he looked like exactly. Finally his hair was similar to Hayden but much longer reaching to his lower shoulders on his back with a crimson color to it just like Vizard King.

» Inner Hollow Personality:

Haereticus or Hae (pronounced Hay) for short is a interesting hollow when one looks at everything in a broad perspective in what hollows are like but he does follow the archetype of them embodying the users darkest aspects and contrasting to them; while Hayden speaks purpose and to protect people Hae seeks to see the world burn seeing it as nothing but corrupt and doesn’t understand why Hayden wants to see it. In that regard he’s a Nihilist seeking to indulge in the pleasures of the world; as some would say some men just want everything and nothing at the same time. He wants to be the bringer of death and wrath to everyone no matter who they are be them good or evil, a direct opposite who wishes to bring his wrath on those who deserve it for their evils ways. But due to this they can find common ground seeing as Hayden embraces the darker parts of him know acknowledging he is a man who has his faults so he is willing to give into the darkness if only to keep others from it. This is the pragmaticism Hayden has when accepting and dealing with the power granted from his Hollow. In short, Hae seeks nothing but pure death and destruction while holding no quilms with taking what he wants when he want’s, to hell with justice and morals in his eyes for at the end of the day in his eyes every being is just as hollow as him no matter how they mask it.

Jealous: Despite how much hae remains nihilistic in life he harbors a jealousy to the likes of those like Cirno and maybe even them being a focal point of his own rage due to the lack of struggle he sees in them. Being a being that was created from thousands of years of anguish and pain he knows nothing but it as of now, not even the times when Hayden tries to understand the monster does he give up the facade of wrath and domiance. So he holds a jealousy to the happiness people have around him even his subjugator he loathes at times, but despite all of this he refuses to change his views of the world for he is far to stuck in his own rage a indicator of what hayden could easily become had he never found true friends. Hae rage is so different from Hayden’s in the regard it is rage at the world, something Hayden had when he was younger but Hayden rage is anger that comes from the injustice in the world and his propelling force to change it… while Hae anger is the force to drive destruction.

Greedy: Hae takes what he wants when he wants to despite the repercussions that may come with it because as he says ‘The world is so fucked up I don’t give a damn who I hurt in the process, if I don’t someone else will’. He heavily trys to get Hayden to do things he would find amusing or that he would want if he had control over the body. He’s the type of person to smile in the courtroom after killing a family of three for their car and laugh during sentancing this is the type of evil he holds within him and the scary aspect is he simply a offshoot of Hayden’s own emotions; making Hayden acknowledge the path he could have went down upon.

Self-Perservations: Hae may think of the world in a fucked up way but that doesn’t mean he wants to die, in fact it’s the other way around. He wants to live so he can dominate everyone else, he wants to be the top dog and destroy whatever he feels like when he feels like it. This inscint drives him to protect Hayden body whenever damage comes that might kill him despite if he likes him or not; it’s important to know that in a bind this Hollow might say or do whatever it takes to survive even going against it’s own beliefs cause at the end of the day for it nothing else matters except being alive- cause if he’s alive one day he can take over.

Bi-Polarism: This is a ball in left field isn’t it? Well this is a side effect from his creation of multiple souls; this means his mood can flick on or off depending on the evening. For instance he could go from being a suave killer who wants to seduce his prey to just outright wanting to murder whatever in it’s path then defecating on it’s corpse while having a go at the corpse. Yes. I do mean in that way.


» Inner Hollow Powers:

Immense Spiritual Power- The hollow was born from the souls of countless people, hollow or otherwise. Their instant death and absorption into Hayden had to go somewhere so they formed the Hollow. The mass corruption, angst, and natural power absorbed from this allowed the Hollow to be birth into existence with such power it's rather ridiculous; the spiritual pressure it exerts when it releases it full power can even make Hayden step back at times. When released the energy takes on a maroon that surrounds him before exploding outward it what looks like to be the mouth of some type of beast.

Immense Strength- Hae was born a high level of strength due to the focus Hayden put into it along with the natural empowerment he had from the souls he was born from. This allows him to be on the higher end of the spectrum when it comes to using his skills and powers; placing him at a master level in strength just like Hayden. His punch can cause earthquakes, the thrust and swing of his sword can generate shockwaves from the force and even be focused with his spiritual energy to empower this. Similar to Kenpachi Zaraki and Hayden due to this he only fights with one hand but is known to switch off with his hands and sometimes grip the handle with both when getting excited.

Immense Speed- Just as before the hollow shared Hayden skills when it came to being born; since Hayden had and still has a high level of speed so did the hollow if not more. He’s able to move at insane speeds due to the mastery of his own step, able to simply vanish to those who aren't able to keep up with his high speed movements- this is without Sonido or Hoho as well. While he could learn this he finds himself to lazy to bother at the moment but none the less he is on the higher spectrum of speed making him a overall physical fighter just like Hayden. This isn't just translated into his raw speed but how he can produce attacks quickly from the charging of a cero to the sway of his sword- each aspect of his fighting takes inspirations from his high level of speed to overwhelm his enemy.

Enhanced Endurance- Hae has a remarkable endurance able to fight for long periods of time before becoming exhausted. Due to being born of such strange circumstances this isn't one of his main factors but it's something of note worth. He’s able to go much further than the average person able to generate attacks at a high speed without being fatigued; he’s able to sustain constant combat with multiple foes if he truly needs to and go against someone on his level for hours should it be required.

Enhanced Durability- Hae has a good amount of durability thanks to Hayden and his own Hierro. This armor he has called ‘Hierro’ is around the advance level but is able to defend against strikes from most blades and range weapons. He can also take a good thrashing before it truly begins to drag him down without any outside factors- being thrown through buildings or even able to endure a Cero Oscura head on and being able to keep fighting on, though injuried. His durability rivals that of Hayden Shikai.

Master Swordsmen- Like Hayden the Hollow has his own unique form of fighting with the sword, Hayden likes to be versatile in his combat while Hae just utilize everything he can. His combat is a lot free flowing than Hayden requiring him to dance around his enemy and at the same time be in their face. His sway of the sword is rather on a mastery as despite his free flowing combat he knows how much strength he has to use to topple buildings or how little he needs to sever key joints and muscles. He is particular dangerous at close quarters with his sword along with open spaces as he will be hard to pin down.

Expert Hakuda User- Despite being heavily focused on the aspects of Swordsmanship Hae has a degree of advancement over Hakuda based fighting he burrows from Hayden. They both share a hand to hand fighting style that Hayden developed and the Hollow adopted in his own regard- only time will tell if he develops his own techniques to use. His style of combat combines the ruthless aggression only a Hollow can muster followed by speed and strength to break his enemy down targeting organs and vital pressure points. He doesn't care if he kills his enemy but each strike is performed with the burning intent to kill.

Cero/Bala- As customary with any Hollow it can perform a cero and Bala rather effectively. In the regards to a cero it can form a swirling ball of energy rather quickly due to the level of speed he has, the color of the energy is maroon with a purple tint to it. The power of their average cero is enough to collapse a skyscraper. In regards to a Bala they can fire them consecutively without fail due to the high amount of energy they can muster and speed. The power of their Bala is much weaker than their cero but the overwhelming amount he can fire is enough to be bad for anyone on the receiving end.

Hakai Cero (Cero of Wrath)- The signature move of the Hollow is what is referred to as the Hakai Cero or Cero of Wrath. This move required for the Hollow to absorb the blood of his own or anyone nearby that's within the battle field. This can be charged for up to three posts with the amount of blood it gathers and energy placed into it to determine the power. At a full three post charge up with a little blood added each post it had the power of that of two Cero Oscuras. At its weakest this attack can stop a Cero Oscura or Gran Rey Cero.

Mask Protection- Just like possession the Hollow can manifest it's mask onto Hayden in extreme circumstances to protect him from certain deadly attacks, most of the time it would instantly shatter the mask afterwards leaving the Hollow tired from the ordeal mostly making it a once per thread type of deal. When the mask is manifested Hayden can shrug of physical and energy based attacks for the most part due to the mask absorbing the damage and lessening the actual damage he takes.

» Vizard Powers:

Mask Protection- When the mask is manifested Hayden can shrug of physical and energy based attacks for the most part due to the mask absorbing the damage and lessening the actual damage he takes. When he uses the mask in this way it can shatter prematurely most likely and leave him fatigued when he does. It's important to note that he does take damage with the mask but it severely lessens the mask duration if constant attacks are made.

Enhanced Speed- When Hayden dons his mask he has an noticeable increase in his physical being allowing him to perform more physical feats. Such as allowing him to move at a higher speed consistently, his attacks and movements being allowed to go to its peak of not exceeding it for extreme moments while not nearly fatiguing him as bad which is a nice bonus to his natural fighting style. On the flip side abusing this speed without rest can lead to the usual torn muscles and being extremely tired fast- so it's best to transfer the speed into helping speed up his other attribute such as his energy manipulation and renegeration. In short; this boost his most aspects of his body.

Enhanced Strength- Like with his speed when donning his mask he gains a edge to his strength allowing him to throw it around much easier without as much fatigue to himself. It becomes easier to cause them earthquake level punches, breaking down buildings with his Zanpakutō or even simply being able to catch the punch of someone on his level of strength. His strength is augmented by the connection and link to his hollow when using his mask- so it's extremely dangerous to be hit by his barrage of sword strokes and punched even if they are pulled or aimed for critical spots such as organs.

Enhanced Durability- Like above his physical well being is being protected by the mask but it also allows him to take more of a beating; even if the mask blocks most of the attacks he still receives a buff to his durability so he can shrug off more attacks. It's useful for when he wants to surprise his enemy or make one final push for the goal of the thread or simply needs to endure through. This can make him quite difficult to deal with considering his advancements through durability, at this point he could most likely take multiple energy blasts and attacks and walk away with minimum to moderate damage and still keeping his mask.

Enhanced Endurance- Hae has a remarkable endurance able to fight for long periods of time before becoming exhausted. Due to being born of such strange circumstances this isn't one of his main factors but it's something of note worth. He’s able to go much further than the average person able to generate attacks at a high speed without being fatigued; he’s able to sustain constant combat with multiple foes if he truly needs to and go against someone on his level for hours should it be required. This also applies to Hayden when donning the mask on top of his natural endurance and strive to fight.

Enhanced Spiritual Power- Hayden gains the Reiatsu of the Hollow while donning his mask, Typically he gains up to two tiers while donning his mask at it’s full power granting him dual reserves.

Cero-As customary with any Hollow it can perform a cero and Bala rather effectively. In the regards to a cero it can form a swirling ball of energy rather quickly due to the level of speed he has, the color of the energy is maroon with a purple tint to it. The power of their average cero is enough to collapse a skyscraper. In regards to a Bala they can fire them consecutively without fail due to the high amount of energy they can muster and speed. The power of their Bala is much weaker than their cero but the overwhelming amount he can fire is enough to be bad for anyone on the receiving end.

Hakai Cero (Cero of Wrath)- The signature move of the Hollow is what is referred to as the Hakai Cero or Cero of Wrath. This move required for the Hollow to absorb the blood of his own or anyone nearby that's within the battle field. This can be charged for up to three posts with the amount of blood it gathers and energy placed into it to determine the power. At a full three post charge up with a little blood added each post it had the power of that of two Cero Oscuras. At its weakest this attack can stop a Cero Oscura or Gran Rey Cero. After it is used it requires a one post cool down and while it is charging per post the user must remained grounded firmly.

Red Canon Bala's- This is a essentially Hayden standard Bala but when fired they have a maroon color with purple tint. Instead of explosiveness they focus on kinetic power and are highly condensed like a cannonball making them slower but when they hit they certainly can throw you back. They can be fired rapidly but their speed is slower than Hayden's Bala's on the flip side however they can force a target back or even into the earth. When they strike a building they can fly straight through due to the highly condensed nature, when they explode it's very small but concentrated. Hayden can fire these while moving and to do so he must thrust his hand out or make a throwing motion. *Note Bare in mind Hayden still has a grandmaster master in his speed so he can generate them quick and throw them quick. It'll be harder for someone without his level of speed to dodge but on his level it'll be much easier.

Artist: N/A - Song: N/A - Word Count: 1546



Desmond Hayden has always been a person of controversy and profound debate within the world, from his motivations and achievements to his scandals and weaknesses. But at his core, he is a man driven by fair and honest tenets that have led him through success and failure. Between the shine and stain which paint the public perception of him, it is important to gain a full understanding of what makes one of the most powerful and simple men tick.

First and foremost, his most defining trait is his drive. His motivations which push him forward despite the trial and hardship he’s faced. Desmond has failed more times than most other established characters, blundered heavily socially and physically. He’s entered into deals that place him at a disadvantage all under the belief that whatever failures he endears will only be temporary.

This drive, this motivation, to keep pushing forward wasn’t simply birthed into him by the example of his parents (though they played a part) but through constant trial and tribulation. In every goal he has set, he has found the challenge to achieving them to be increasing with exponential difficulity. It is hard to put into words how this changes a man, other than like a blade tempered by flame to become harder. Some notable moments of tribulation in his life was facing the fact Azure’s death ultimately is one of his greatest failures. That a man as large and powerful as that, could be murderer and justice never served.

These trials pepper his life such as being at odds with that very man during the creation of Vastime, the controversy of his own leadership of The Vanguard, and of course his struggles with being the avatar of Death. These are normal things, each one having the capacity to break the resolve of even the strongest of men. To turn their goals and ambitions to dirt. And he persisted through them, not just surviving but thriving into a symbol of intestinal fortitude.

It is of course important, to talk about what his motivations and drive are. It is the simple and earnest desire to ensure that Earth may prosper under its own two feet, then the average person may grow to become the best they can be. While he is fallible as a mortal man, and is prone to the outbursts expected of an emotional passionate man, everything he has done has ever been in the vein of bettering the world.

His war with Shadowfall and the creation of Vastime served their purpose in that regard. Each one a small stepping stone in this vision for the world. He knew he could never protect the world from harm, but that perhaps he could create a world which thrived in conflict. Not the total war, oblivion, which Shadowfall and former organizations perpetuated but genuine honest sportsmanship. The respect and companionship which came from two opposing boxers meeting one another in the ring, to know that to succeed on their own merit was reward enough and failing with sufficient grace was equally rewarding.

This world, perhaps impossible to achieve, was one of the most defining visions of Desmond Hayden. It was the world he shared in visions with his wife, this idealistic nature of him both a bane and a curse. He was never the shrewd politician of his wife, or those around him, but he was a man who achieved results. When people questioned his vision, he merely affirmed that it may be impossible- but that alone was no reason to not seek it.

Despite these massive parts of his life, this was not only what he was. As alluded to earlier, Desmond was an idealist. An emotional man who wore his heart on his sleeve when needed, and preferred to speak from the heart. It cannot be ignored that a large part of this emotion was geared towards anger, to rage, in some part. His hollow didn’t merely appear out of nowhere, it came from a physical failure and spiritual one. For all his heroics, Desmond harbored an immense hatred in his heart for not only himself but those whom he arbitrarily deems as the enemy.

It was only with great effort, and great self-awareness brought on by his closest companions that he became aware of these things. He wasn’t gifted with the immense focus and separation from emotions others often tote. In fact, it would take but a slip in the active awareness of his emotional walls for him to fall back into the vicious cycle of emotional control. The walls he has created and the ability to ruthlessly separate his emotions from his actions, primarily in combat, come from a deep dehumanization found in his past.

Desmond was a soldier, first and foremost. In his human life and the afterlife, he was a man who found his calling in arms. He has killed, and will kill again. Innocent blade rests on his hands not by active choice, but by every consequence of his actions as a leader and warrior. There is a self-awareness that comes with that heavy burden, and the needed action to be able to dial in his focus onto the current situation at hand. This is shown throughout his history from his first fights all the way to the efforts undertaken with Cyrus to defend the city of Minatumi. These actions required a separation of his emotional state and his actions, focused solely on combating and processing the current situation.

To overview who Hayden roughly is: An idealistic man with a genuine heart, who at times needs to harden said heart, and an immovable will in his pursuit of an ideal world. This is who he is at his core, and will continue to always be. But there are other facets of him that are equally more important, equally more pressing to talk about.

Hayden is painfully socially retarded at times.

Despite his seemingly inspiring ability to motivate those around him and amass a group of followers, when it comes to the intricacies of personal conversation or even social relationships he fails strongly. Most times this can be passed off as the arms length display of the King or bigger than life figure. And most times, he can have passable conversations when he speaks from the heart. In fact, more often when he speaks from his heart he finds more success than attempting the political doublespeak others are so capable of.

In the same vein, this reliance on his past actions or genuine dialogue has often shot him in the foot. Where it might be advisable to wait, he chooses to move forward and that rashness is both a powerful quality and a foolish one. A man of action reaffirmed by his success and disregards his failures as set backs. While inspiring to some, it can be very off putting to most. Something that has served him well is the acknowledgement he shall always be criticized, but results will often prove the truth.

It is equally important to include that a passionate man such as Hayden feels deeply, far too deeply than what is justified at times. Those whom he calls allies find a friend who would move heaven and earth for them, but at the same time those whom he feels have slighted him will find him uneasy to forgive and forget. In the political world, this can prove detrimental when trying to reach compromises. Thankfully, with enough persistence from his friends he can often move such things when it comes to something profoundly important: Duty.

Perhaps the quality of the man which exceeds most other things, his dedication to what he views as his duty is without measure. When he established Vastime it was as a tool to combat Shadowfall, but that did not remove the intense duty he feels to the citizens of the nation. To act on their behalf and become the embodiment of the nation, to move the world if needed. His life, in his eyes, is simply not his own anymore. A necessary sacrifice made for his ideals, and for the people of the world.

The line between The Man and The King has been a point of contention for some time for Desmond, and it is still his most prominent struggle. As he wrestles with the great responsibility he alone has placed on himself. At times he has felt that things he wished he could have done, things he would have done as merely ‘Hayden’ have been locked off to him. For better or worse, his role has forced him to slow down in the almost breakneck speeds at which he has moved emotionally. The hot fire of rage which once burned in his heart, now contained by the cage which is the nation.

As he struggles, every day, against unfathomable odds one thing is certain: He will not quit. Through doubt and failure, he will persist until he has given everything he has. That is the man he perhaps was not born as, but has become.

Artist: N/A - Song: N/A - Word Count: 1546


Slayer Gene: This is a broad term from people brought into Hayden family line or other slayers in the world. The slayer gene allows the user to merge with a element or object to ampliy their powers; a slayer can host up to two different powers and three at 0-5 onward, permanently so long as they 'mesh well with their personality'. For instance Hayden is very destructive yet fast so his affinity was lighting, therefor he can gain power from lighting and at later stages even become lightning if he trains it. He also had a affinity with metal but it wasn't as prevalent leading him to not pursue it besides his iron dragon lance. However, lets say someone was very calm alot there affinity may be water or wind. This isn't restricted to just elements it could be even wood if the person absorbed it. Slayers can temporarily take on the power of someone else if its given to them; they then expel it in a devastating attack like when Shatari gave Hayden some energy. Though the reaction tends to be violent and may be damaging to the user if the body isn't equipped to handle the power or is to weak to utilize it. They also can adapt to new things faster than other people, like if you absorb 'snow' and it makes them ill they can recover faster from it. Their adaptability to new powers drastically decreases their bed time when it comes to training and learning new things. Should be noted that they can only use one element at a time, so no dual element attacks at the SAME time.


Former Death Matter Host: The most important, and updated part of Hayden's power is that he is no longer an active host for Death Matter. Due to the forced seperation by his own hand, a large quantity of his original power has left him. Due to the pervasive quality of Death Matter, much of his techniques and powers have been altered if not outright removed. His Zanpakatou has been utterly corrupted and needs to time to heal, his spirit silent as he tries to rediscover that relationship.


Body Supremacy-After so much time of having to control his body, having to delve deep into his inner being Hayden has gained the ability to control every aspect of his body. This ranges from being able to stop bleeding in one area to determining the exact amount of effort his muscles put forth. This ability was unlocked after gaining his shikai an offshoot of 100% usage. While in his shikai he can’t control his body supremacy.

His brain has gained the knowledge of how to understand and temporarily alter his body by focusing on what he wishes to do. There isn't much more to it than that, telling his body to do something through thought process. It would be like moving a finger, it's a collection of items working together with his brain telling it what he wants to do. Some examples of this would be stopping the blood flow to an area but a drawback of this would be that area is not getting blood along with that being impractical, but if he had a wound on his arm that was bleeding profusely, he could force the skin to keep it's self-tense to try to close the wound till it can heal normally something stitches would normally do. This ability simply gives his mastery over his body, controlling it with ease. Another usage would be willing his body to forcibly use all his muscles or to barely use any percentage of this, the natural drawbacks to this is it would be easy to injury his body along with tiring him mentally which can make him lose control of the ability and even break his focus in combat. Typically for any ability after eight posts begins to tire him mentally and after ten posts, he'd lose control of the altercation all together.

It should be noted the more damage he takes the harder it makes him to control this ability reducing the time he can effectively control them or their potency.

Near Immunity to Lightning- Due to the natural affinity of lightning along with his constant training and near mastery of lightning base attacks and abilities. He hasn't gotten close to his peak in lightning based attacks but he definitely can walk unscathed through attacks which would normally end non lighting primary fighter. It takes alot of lightning and overall power to injury him, chances are lighting be it's self would be very hard to kill him seeing as he just gets more powerful from it but it is possible though extremely unlikely.


Höllenhund (Hell hound):Utilizing the Hakuda combat, and Zanjutsu styles that he created on his own Hayden is perfectly able to use his large Zanpakutō with just a single hand, being that he prefers his right hand for this he keeps his left hand open being able to use it for close range attacks. furthermore, it's a balanced style where the idea is to keep himself able to fight in all circumstances baring the loss of limbs or his mind. Hayden utilizes his strong offensive capabilities to make this fighting style his own using the many teachers the people that he considers to be his inspiration. If he chose to he can teach them this style.

Aspscisus Genus: Throughout the course of the day, typically Hayden does not remove his Zanpakutō. But the time he does usually does not require the man to grasp his blade with all his might. Rather he prefers to hold back his natural strength but opting to wield his blade with a singular hand. Similar to the way Kenpachi Zaraki limited himself many years ago, Hayden found this a good way to strength both his arms individually while making sure he never overtly used his power or lack’d in skill. So in using this ‘Restricted Stance’ usually involves holding his Zanpakutō in one hand, adopted from his ‘Hellhound’ style. But there is a large emphasis in finesse and striking swiftly, usually a build up to test the strength of his enemy.

Typically this stance will find his body very relaxed with few wind up strikes, following a swift and deadly striking pattern. Focus on speed and unpredictability are key components to this style. This style is compatible with fighting multiple people or a singular person, as it can switch from wide power attacks to precise cuts within seconds. When it comes to his defense with this style it can leave a lot to be desired, but provides generally decent defensive capabilities. The user MUST be able to use their free hand to defend in some capacity as without being able to properly switch between offensive and defensive interchangeably with their sword hand and open hand can leave them at a disadvantage.

Primo Percute: This attack showcases the idea of quick offensive so valued in this style. The user can usually launch this attack rather easily from almost any distance, preferably medium to long range. The use braces their legs tightening their muscles using requiring at least some sort of master level power to generate the most force, releasing that energy usually leads to a small crater upon launching themselves. This relies more on the strength on the user for a quick rush attack, staying airborne as their body twists for maximum slicing damage.

The user must be able to focus their power on a specific point within their sword, somewhat near the top of the blade for maximum cutting potential. All this slashing power is then aimed downward as the user does a full body rotation. This translate into an extremely accurate and fast slash with the force to deal massive damage in a compact area. Finally, it makes for a great battle opener or surprise late game attack. A testament to the amount of force and speed the user can generate.

Bant Plagae: Every swordsmen should know how to attack with killing intent, to create a strike which forces your enemy to step back. But a truly great swordsmen understands how to project this force into the world, without striking. Thus the idea of this maneuver was made. In this technique the user funnels their killing intent into an ‘false’ strike, this can either be done from a strike mid swing or without even moving their blade only a small shift.

If this is done from a blade movement it will make it seem more realistic to the point that someone of relatively high focus and mental deduction, equal to the Zanjutsu skill, to deduce it is a feint before it is too late. However if this false strike is made from a neutral movement, allowing you to better counter your opponent, they would only need one tier lower than your Zanjutsu skill. This could be good to get a dazed shot on your opponent for if they did not detect it, they might assume it was a real strike even after the feint was revealed. However if they are above your Zanjutsu skill they would immediately known this is a false strike, but if they where on your level then they would only have a smaller reaction window. It should be noted this attack is variably harder to detect in a higher paced battle, with outside factors making it increasingly or decreasingly difficult.

.

Obviously this move is of great use due to the adaptability of this guard piercer/ranger closer, thus making it something which can be used explosively with differentiating results.

Percute Defensiva: With the high pace of fighting usually involved in extreme level fights, one may not be able to always stop a strike or block effectively. This technique is a way to circumvent this deadly fault in this style, by using their offensive style in a defensive quality thus creating a defense from offense. With the simple swing of their sword the user, with enough skill and practice, effectively meet their enemy with a defensive capability. When combined with this free-flowing style of combat it allows for the user to maintain a dominant position through the use of their freehand as well.

The reason this move is so effective for Hayden is his Zanpakutō special ability to maintain a plasma edge, the energy naturally produce from the heat of the blade can act as a first layer of defense when meeting an energy attack with his blade or another physical attack. Likewise, this upward arcing swing can generate it’s own kinetic slash which can meet an attack before to either lower it’s destructive power or eliminate it entirely. Overall it makes it a low energy cost defensive measure which at the right time can open a wide variety of attack avenues.

Nativus Incursus: The more exerting and power of the Zanjutsu techniques developed by Hayden, this truly required mastery of both the sway of his sword, focus, and personal connection to his blade. This technique was designed as a way to merge both his raw destructive physical power and the ability to manipulate the storm as granted by his Zanpakutō. To perform this Hayden mindset needs to be able to comprehend the world at a master focus level, as this involves manipulating the raw elemental foundations at it’s best. Thus combining all his greatest strengths into a relatively powerful slash.

Hayden first lowers his Zanpakutō in a downward position similar to that of ancient european martial arts, with his body being located in his legs and arms. The storms in which is naturally generated by his Zanpakutō would gather around his blade, his mind beginning to focus on drawing out his internal power. With the culmination of his storms empowering the blade to become heated from the constant strikes of lightning. The man would raise his Zanpakutō above his head with his free hand as his left foot would slide outwards carrying the power into his hand, before snapping his blade in a massive wirl. The effect of this body be the literal projection of the storm being shot out from his blade, sending out a massive arc of kinetic force and plasma energy. However, the true power lives in the point in which the blade makes contact as if it hits a target instead of the power being whip into a massive arc all that energy will condense on that point. Thus making a massive slash empowered by the heat of plasma and Hayden’s own reinforced limb to create a hit that exceeds his natural one armed strength.



Potestatem Genus: In inverse of Aspscisus Genus, roughly translated to Power Style, this focuses on unleashing the strength of Hayden and those who use this style. The number one distant difference between this and it’s sister style is that to perform it, you must have two hands on your weapon.This is the far step into unlocking the power behind your sword strikes, as Kenpachi said “a sword is far more powerful when you use two hands instead of one.” Thus it takes this idea and completely develops its potential and combat completely around the idea of projecting their user force into the world. When adopting this style it can yield many benefits but with them cons in their own right.

To assume this style the user takes hold of their Zanpakutō with both hands, usually adopting a solid stance with their feet shoulder width apart. For the most results it’[color=#B87900]e person maintain a high position with their weapon or a low position to add for maximum momentum when cutting, but this can leave their defense open. The key to using this style is maintaining offensive as in a defensive fight this style can suffer disadvantages such as slower attacks or opening their guard. Thus one would wanna press their enemy keeping the advantage of a fast and furious sight. Do not hesitate.

Ryodan: This is a age old Kendo technique demonstrated by Kenpachi, adopting the ‘high’ blade position in traditional sword fighting. The user raises their sword above their head before tensing their body swiping downward with all their might thus placing a large portion of their power in this attack. It should be noted for it’s full effect you must step forward as it transfer your lower body power into the vertical slash.

For Hayden this can result in an absolutely devastating attack, one which increases his overall attack potency to it’s highest levels. While ideally this wants to be done in front of your enemy it can damage them from afar if they are in front of you, as a line of kinetic power will erupt from the ground following it’s attack. This power utilize near maximum of his strength resulting in a massive attack with the force to split mountains and split the earth’s crust at it’s maximum power.


Continuss Tempestas : More of the more intensive Zanjutsu techniques Hayden has developed around his Zanpakutō, this techniques involves the utilization of his storm manipulation powers. The name roughly translated to ‘nonstop storm’ which is definitely a good summarization of this technique. Hayden summons his storm force condensing the raging storm around his arms and blade into a vortex of energy and lightning before dropping his sword into the ‘back left’ position. This sufficiently prepares the technique that is about to be launched

All Hayden has to do from this point is slash his blade three times to launch three different tornados within the area. However, the force and mach at which this storm's spin at are greatly applied from the force in which they are launched, they completely are off the F scale which is used to measure their intensity. Instead this tornados can generate up to Mach 3 speeds at their most powerful which will last for roughly a post before they decrease to mach 1.5 and the final post only 500 mphs. So for a grand total of three posts they will remain causing significant damage to the surrounding landscape, also granting Hayden the ability to control and utilize them as he see fit. This has a cool down of three posts.

Ruunt et Necem: This technique is one of the most dangerous just do to the shift in mindset Hayden has to make to perform it. This roughly translate into ‘Murderous intent’ which is perfect for what it does to the Zanjutsu user. Upon activation of this technique, the user needs to be able to have both a mastery in focus and Zanjutsu in order to draw their Zanpakutō full power out. They will gain an almost steamy appearance around them mixed with a red aura, in which they leak tangible energy. The user mindset will focus on nothing but bring the end of whoever their target is along with whoever gets in their way, giving up their compassion and mercy in order to fight to their peak.

The person will notice a sizeable increase in their stamina, able to carry out long sequences of attack without tiring or experiencing the negatives of fatigue. While in a regener like Hayden this may seem useless in reality it allows the man to perform at a higher standard via eliminating the need to push those feelings aside. In this mode they seem like an unstoppable machine of force and rage, but this does not mean their strikes lose precision or focus. Rather this pushes those concepts to its brink, each hit aimed with the intent to kill so they will notice each strike targets a vital order or has the intent to cripple their enemy somehow.

In this mindset and energy merge, the Zanpakutō and user would caution using this as over-exertion of it can permanently alter the user into a bloodthirsty machine or have lingering effects after the user tries to break the focus. TYpically someone will enter into this if they are near passing out, as this gives them a second wind in which the user loses control- all their training and focus taking over to destroy whatever their target is. In exchange for one last push they give up their capacity for positive emotions and mercy temporarily creating quite the conundrum for people like Hayden.

Verum: One of the more supportive abilities of this style of fighting is the full synchronization offered between user and Zanpakutō. Thus Hayden is able to commune with his Zanpakutō in the middle of combat otherwise known as a sixth sense. This transfer into the ability to able to detect things which may try to alter his mindset or abilities, be it entering into a hallucination or someone trying to mess with his emotions. Almost like a tugging within his mind he will find himself able to ground himself in the now with his Zanpakutō, his blade and him remembering their purpose for being this close and connected. Thus while a supportive technique still an invaluable on in this offensive arsenal.

Manifestatio Voluntatis: This technique is in the highest of caliber when it comes to this style, a damning move for both the user and the receiver it takes a few special conditions to release this ability. First and foremost Hayden must be wholly committed to the idea of defeating whoever is fighting and the second is this must be a death enabled thread with the final being is he cannot be within ‘Ruut et Necem’ mindset.. The reason for this is due to the strain in which this mentally places on Hayden and the physical effort in which must be used to summon an ability of this caliber.

Similar to his Arma Leviathan attack, it is the companion to that attack however reserved for Zanjutsu use. Hayden must prepare this attack for a singular post via drawing in all aspects of his energy, including the physical manifestation of his will power. This attack is meant to represent the ever evolving lengths he is willing to go thus it increases in power with the amount of conviction Hayden has, usually determined by his will power skill. As this is being performed they would see Hayden Zanpakutō begin to gain a mirror image in energy, increasing the size of the Zanpakutō to that of triple it’s size.

A olive aura would surround the blade as Hayden literal will power is empowering the attack, with the actual blade turning a dark mixture of black and maroon to represent the merged energies within his power. This attack draws upon all of that condensing it within his Zanpakutō as the channel in which to strike their enemy, the second post effectively allowing for Hayden to attack with this empowered blade of Hayden will power. Hayden can maintain this blade for a total of seven posts at maximum, only able to maintain it for four to five without emptying out his mental reserve and own energy.

The effects of being struck by this Zanpakutō is one might begin to feel their own will power to fight to begin to drain, specifically if their own will power is lower than Hayden’s. They will also feel a sharp increase in the cutting power and intensity of attacks generated from the blade, as most if not all Hayden energy is concentrated and merged with his Zanpakutō. The ability to fight with his swordsmanship will see an overall increase to the point it would allow him to contend with many higher than him.

However, the drawbacks to this are easily seen. Upon activation Hayden will see first and foremost decrease in all energy attacks potency. Secondly, he will see a large drop in his energy, one which is notable should the thread progress past this form. Finally, this takes Hayden will power and wears it down, what does this mean? It means should he be pushed to the bring outside this form he will not be able to tap into his will power to give him one final push- thus making this form both his last push and should be used sparingly.

II Scutum Domat: The two-handed version of it’s sister, this simply refers to the same ability perform in a much stronger and greater capacity. The ability to maneuver your blade with two hands results in a greater range of movement along with more power behind this guard breaker. Thus making it more of a offensive attack or defensive attack in nature. The reason this is regarded as the upgraded variant of this attack is not only due to the power however but at the tip of the blade Hayden focuses his ability to produce explosions to activate when he thrusts to open their enemy up for another attack- or neutralize other attacks by meeting them with equal or more energy.



Hakuda Technique Dragon Separation- User sticks their fingers into the target mid section, using their energy or raw strength they attempt pull them in two different directions to rip the target in two. This is done by coating their fingers with their energy/reiatsu forming a somewhat hardening around their fingers that keeps their fingers as sharp as blades, when the force is applied in opposite directions the energy from the fingers spread into the body physically forcing it apart as the users pulls; it's rather easy to counter this by either dodging the attack or if the fingers are stabbed into you attack their arms as this interrupt the flow of energy removing the energy hardening.

Luce Celeritate- The user uses Shunpo to dash over to the enemy while cocking their right or left leg back and at the instant of arriving using their own force and momentum they send a powerful kick to the knee to disable the person by either breaking the bone, forcing them to a knee, or dislocating the joint.


Bisecetur- Hayden initially starts this move by transferring twenty five percent over his normal muscle usage into his legs through his body supremacy power. He then cocks his right leg back before pivoting spinning in round house kick to their mid ribs to break them intending to puncture their lungs followed by another pivot to the right this time sending his left leg at their throat with killing intent. If he wishes not to kill he would aim for the other ribs or face. This attack requires small preparation within the same post. This attack can be used multiple times over the course of a thread although should be paced, using back to back would result in a fracture i.e using three times in a row without rest.

Ravenous Dragon- Hayden transfer fifty percent usage over the natural limit of his muscle usage into his arms to speed their attacks up and strength. This is bordering dangerous territory where he can begin to break his body down and fatigue himself if he maintains for this long. However, after transfering the usage he then flash steps to the person to send a flurry of punches at them at high speed by either moving in a circle around them striking their joints and pressure points using his focus or aiming for a single point; their solar plexus. This attack can also be focused in a single area; the amount of punches sent in a blurred motion is usually twenty to twenty five when pushing it. Using this attack has a three post cooldown from when he used it and using it in a thread more than twice will result in a fracture in his arms and if he performs another set before that heals he will break both his arms.

Due to the nature of Hayden's currnet status, his Zanpakatou is sealed and unable to be used at this current junction, and will be overhauled in relation to his removal as Death's Host.

- Reiatsu Color: Maroon

- Zanpakutô Spirit Name: Vovin’ Ol Iaiadix (Enochnian for Dragon of Honour.)

- Zanpakutô Spirit Appearance: Vovin when taking a first glance could be described as a living symbol of power, from the way the spirit manages to command a presence of respect to simply staring down at whoever so graces it’s presence. The once impressive dragon has been reduced in size taking on now the form of a human male that stands roughly the same height as Hayden. Vovin now wears a more intricate royal armor than before, with a longsword attached to his hip.

Spoiler:

- Inner World: The world the spirit lives within is a large but very broad mountain peak that extends just above the clouds. In the center of the large mountain peak lays a castle that the dragon is usually in the courtyard of or in front of. It’s large brown and grey concrete walls extending even further into the air, it would be considered impressive even for it’s size.

- Sealed Zanpakutô Apperance : Iaiadix usually looks like a normal Zanpakutō when placed within the sheath but when drawn it takes on the form of a greatsword. The cross shaped guard is thicker than most blades of it’s caliber, taking on a more practical or knightly approach in combat. The long blade seems to specialise in cutting and swift motions due to the thinness of it. Overall it is a fine blade, not the typical Zanpakutō.

Spoiler:
- Sealed Zanpakutô Abilities:

Storm Manipulation: The first and foremost ability is storm manipulation, by simply summoning or having his Zanpakutō his storm abilities are amplified allowing him to create, control, negate, enhance, and embody storms. Hayden can even negate other people storms and to slightly weaker enemies manage to even steal their own storms away from them. He can even control said storm to the point it looks like has become a raw embodiment of the storm, using it in offensive and defensive capabilities such as forcing the fighter either away from Hayden or making it difficult to stay in prolonged combat due to well lightning strikes and the reduced lighting from the clouds. It should be noted this ability does not place the storm on his skin but he can lower its elevation to ground level.

Plasma Edge: The moment Hayden’s Zanpakutō is removed from it’s sheathe the edge glows white. It provides a minor distraction when fighting which makes the hard to predict certain strikes but can easily be picked up on by the experienced fighter by the second or third strike. But this is not the primary function of this ability it simply happens to be a side effect, what is really happening is coating the edge of the blade is microthin weaves of lightning running along the edge so small and infused it happens to create a Plasma like effect which stays at a toasted 2,500 fahrenheit enough to simply burn/cut through most normal materials. When things come into close proximity of the frontal edge of the blade they may very well end up combusting into flames or simply disintegrating from the heat emitted. Thankfully, Hayden can choose to turn this effect off but he usually leaves it on with his reasoning being if he intends draw his blade he should be ready to kill.

One Hell of a Shock: When Hayden first started practicing and using his Zanpakutō he used to have the ability of being able to taser someone if they touched the blade. While admittedly a weak power in the beginning as he grew stronger so did the amps he could produce from someone touching his blade. It’s key difference and feature between plasma edge is that it does not require direct contact with the front of blade moreso that they simply touch the Zanpakutō in any capacity they will receive an ample amount of electricity course through their body enough to temporarily daze someone of advance durability and potentially cripple those of weaker pain endurance or durability. Prolonged contact or multiple shocks can disable a person or limb, it must come in contact with flesh.

Someone grasping for whatever reason his blade or hilt during a post will send a large shock through their body making them feel numb and whatever body part they used to grab would have second degree burns. If multiple strikes of contact (more than three) are made consecutively on a limb that limb will be rendered immobile for a single post. If they are touched in the head with the blade or receive enough cuts with the Zanpakutō they will experience dizziness, numbness, and a loss of motor function up to three posts at the severest level. However, if they recieve constant strikes to the head they could potentially suffer unintended side-effects that would be associated with electroshock therapy- or simply fry to death whichever comes first in a life or death scenario.


- Release: “Iaiadix Coraxo Ior!” (Honour Thunderous Roar)




- Shikai Abilities:

Naneel:- Rather than a flat modifier temporary modifier to his skills this ability upon entering shikai activates, seeing as Hayden’s Zanpakutō has merged with his death matter he will see an increased potency in any energy attacks connected directly to his Zanpakutō and Death matter. With the synchronization of his powers this effect now applies to any attack launched from this state be it energy or otherwise, meaning a Cero that might only normally only destroy a section of a town could cause said town to be leveled with the same energy consumption. While this is a true nod to the level of power Hayden possesses he needs to be careful to not over use his energy or needlessly waste it, as the true usefulness of this ability comes from how it can prolong a fight and his own endurance by reducing the cost of energy to perform attacks while maintaining the same power.

The Strength of the Storm:. When Hayden lifts his Zanpakutō up and he focuses on merging with the energy in the air, from the subtle hints of rishi in the air to the earth beneath he draws upon all to create his storm. Around his blade people will see what looks to be a blackened cloud forming with streaks of steady lightning running through it, his Zanpakutō lifted in the air before slashed towards the ground with the cloud exploding outwards. The storm spreads throughout the area on the ground burning and glassing over much of it as it expands to the size of a city block before settling in. While this storm is active Hayden will be like a fish in water, able to maneuver effortlessly and shift the tide of battle in an instant from controlling the aspects of the battlefield from this ever changing storm. Unlike simply manifested storms from his earlier power this storm is specifically geared towards rapid change and destruction either used to control a battle or throw off opponents be them defensive or offensive, aggressive or evasive. If the storm is left undisturbed by outside influences the storm can last up to six posts with a three post cooldown.

Separation of Creation:- Hayden Shikai combines all aspects of his personality and powers to create someone able to stand for what he believes in. Sometimes you are faced with opposition that requires a bit more than the simply sword or energy attack to take them down, so he learned to focus his power to create a technique to handle those problems. The ‘Separation of Creation’ is Hayden combining his physical strength, his willpower, and finally the three powers that rest inside of him from his Zanpakutō, Vastimian, and Death Matter nature. What happens is his Zanpakutō radiates heat and energy, before releasing a cool atmosphere around it which is the death matter merging with his energies and his own willpower stabilizing the explosive energy. When this technique is activated anything Hayden manages to cut or slice is temporarily removed from the cycle of life and death; what does this mean? Well in short they are destroyed. For the post he attacks in, the area (the immediate wound and a few inches around)o he pierces will become a dull grey color and exhibit excruciating pain upon the victim as their physical body and ethereal body is being slowly broken away for up to the next two posts before returning to normal; yet any part of them completely erased will stay that way and while it will heal at a snail pace for those higher on the regeneration scale. This ability is obviously on the higher end of Hayden’s abilities and while he can choose to initiate this at the beginning of a fight it will severely limit all his other abilities while activated, at least cutting their power in half and up to seventy five percent limiting him to swordsmanship honestly; and if he chooses not to activate this upon entering into shikai he must use a post to activate this ability before using it- as it is a togglable ability . This is his ace card for his Shikai, while powerful it can be improved upon something which is showcased in his perfected or final form bankai as others call it.

Semper Invictus Armatus: The resolved armor has evolved. That is the simplest way to put it, from its first incarnation which took his utter focus to use and at the time was rather powerful. But it has since outgrown that former purpose, now Hayden requires much more out of it with his own shift in purpose and strength. The first and foremost thing that has improved is the damage in which this armor can receive, along with what it can defend with. This armor was once able to stand a singular large scale nuclear blast with Hayden somewhat alright, nowadays this armor can withstand the force of multiple nuclear level attacks with ease; augmenting his defenses to that of someone who can content with some of the strongest fighters in the world; such as Radioactive among others. When this armor receives damage a special process ensues in which the force and energy transferred into the armor from the attack is broken down, taking energy from the armor in the process, and protects Hayden while also keeping his stamina and personal energy reserves replenished. The important part of this is the attack makes contact with the armor, for instance if Hayden erected a barrier in front of him he would not receive the benefits of the armor being hit- as well if he loses a complete piece of armor and he is attacked there he receives normal damage as if he was unarmored. Now, the second ability Hayden has gained from his armor developed rather later just as his ‘Separation of Creation’ manifested in his need of ways to counteract much stronger beings. This ability is simply referred to a ‘Constanity’ which in short he is anchored to ‘creation’ and this universe. If someone had an ability to remove someone existence or attack/alter them that existence in any capacity he would have a way to both physically and ethereal defend against it. That’s not to say he cannot die but he simply cannot be wiped or destroyed from existence; what some way refer to as true death granting him a small edge on quincies and those who seek to bring that fate upon him. The final function of this armor is the offensive function, releasing the mental restrictions of the mind to allow Hayden to fully utilize his strength and speed to drastic portions; it should be noted that while he can make much more powerful strikes and punch harder this will gradually wear his body down. Especially if he is not taking the time to allow his body to rest or adjust; if an opportunity is afforded.

Shikai:


- Bankai Abilities:

Catastrophic Reiatsu Surge:- Hayden learned to control his energy so when he released his Bankai the energy would flood inward and be self contained providing the perks of this massive energy boost which could bring him from near death and exhaustion to almost peak fighting condition as a much needed second wind. However, in the event Hayden needs to clear some space or simply just doesn’t care when he release his bankai this energy will flood outward the force exerting on everything and everyone around; while he is still retaining the energy he is not suppressing the raw might of it which has some drastic side-effects. Anyone within three hundred meters will feel this force upon them and if they are not above his level they may very well be forced to their knees. Anyone not zero tier has the very high chance serious injury and permanent injury, if there is obstruction the damage is reduced. Needless to the reactive mixture of energies being released tend to be heavier than normal; thus creating the effect above.

Wrath of the Storm Bringer: An upgraded variant of ‘The Strength of the Storm’. Unlike the strength of the storm this focuses on compressing all the energy around Hayden, that raging storm acting as a sort of constant source of energy for him to draw from and use. However, when used in conjunction with it’s sister ability it can dramatically boost Hayden fighting capabilities to the point of masking his energy, allowing him to make full powered attacks with little to no charge up due to the constant source of energy around him. Finally, the spectacular ending to the ability is homage to some of Haydn's early abilities which to be blank is a massive energy attack. Hayden gathers the storm encasing his body into his blade, his Zanpakutō becoming blackened with lighting coursing over it dramatically before it in swirls his arm as he- with one slash he releases the energy in a cacophonous boom- which is the sonic boom from the speed of which the attack will travel. The swirling mass of Death Matter, Reiatsu, and lighting will become a vortex before converging forming a type of cone with the tip pointed towards the target. Upon striking the target the energy will spin rapidly as if trying to go through them, as it will most obstacles in it’s path, and explode violently with enough force to level a city the size of modern day New York or London condensed into the size of a city block. Once this ability is used it will have a four post cool down; as well as triggering the cool downs for Wrath of the storm Bringer and The Strength of the Storm.

Super Shinigami:Upon entering into his Bankai each racial skill increases by one tier to the next level, while this seems a big jump one must remember that Hayden’s bankai is specifically designed to augment his physical capabilities first and foremost; so with the extreme energy boost he receives it allows for his body to compete at a much higher level. However it must be noted that this form cannot move Elites to Masters; the only time this would be applicable is if Hayden focused his entire buff to one mastered skill I.e Zanjutsu so he could compete at half a Master level for Zanjutsu and have all his other skill remain the same. This buff will only last for seven posts with a eight post cool down.

Death’s Bargain: Having mastered his bankai Hayden has discovered the true purpose of his ‘ultimate’ ability. It is a fairly simple concept, it takes Hayden and his chosen opponent and locks them into a duel within ‘Death’s Realm.’ Upon enacting the declaration of the duel, they are ripped from their point in time and space placed within a pocket dimension. In doing so a few unique things happen which must be noted:

-Hayden and his opponents tier difference becomes negligible, in this realm they are placed on even footing energy wise. This translate to the other person gaining the same energy reserves as the higher person.

-Once within the realm, both duelists will be brought to their base states of power. Should they be injuried upon being brought, they shall be healed.

-The duel lasts until either party is unable to battle, one submits, or one perished.

-Wounds inflicted in this realm shall only heal for the victor. Should a draw occur, neither wounds shall be healed.

-Wounds sustained within this realm are not normal in nature, they are not only a wound to the physical presence of person but their existence. A wound suffered like this harms the person in a physical capacity (body) and the metaphysical concept of their person. It is destroying a part of them in totality similar to Julian guillotine. It is as if this part of them never existed in the first place.

Naturally, this makes healing them rather difficult. You can't regrow a limb you never had. Or heal flesh you never possessed. However, this is not meant to be a permeant deal provided you somehow survive or walk away from this, one could find ways to circumvent this in roleplay. It's simply just not meant to be a quick fix.

-The duel cannot be infringed upon, unless an entity possess the might to contest Death himself.

-Whoever perished within this realm, shall be condemned to the 666th layer of hell.

This ability is a combined effort of Death, Hayden’s patron, and Hayden. In an attempt to stave off Hayden’s soul being claimed to act as Death’s avatar they struck this deal, allowing Hayden the freedom to live his life as he sees fit. Should Hayden perish in this duel, death shall receive what he desires; an avatar. Should Hayden win these duels, he shall visit upon death worthy souls.



My Last Stand; Armor of Death: Finally, the last tool in Hayden’s bankai arsenal is both the representation of his stalwart defense of his people and unyielding nature towards and obstacle. This armor acts similar to that of his shikai armor with all the bells and whistles of course, including the massive defensive buff to place him on par with the highest of caliber fighters if not exceeding some in his own right. Yet this armor has a few more capabilities beyond that of protection, instead of passively waiting for substances to absorb into its fold increasing the user energy, it actively will convert everything around it to death matter which will form a orb around Hayden. Within this 20 by 20 meter radius of Hayden everything is either death matter or some other subset of his powers; meaning no oxygen or atmosphere exist within it which isn’t a problem to Hayden due to his abilities allowing him to breath with death matter. Once something enters into this ‘bubble’ they will automatically be attacked from both the outside and their inside if there are any exposed parts of their body. Needless to say, it’s a painful process and it can be fought off with someone’s own energy it is extremely hard to deal with when Hayden is bearing down with his full force, having to deal with his onslaught of attacks and anything else that might happen.

Bankai:


- Final Release: Requiem


Requiem:

Requiem, an act or token of remembrance.

There is a part of Desmond Hayden which is dead. A part which died when Wolf Lionus shoved his hand into his chest raising him from perdition, while also condemning him. In that dead part of Hayden something festered and grew apart of him, a piece of a primordial deity which saw him grow. Which groomed him to be the man he became, through death and destruction. There is undeniably a part of the king which thrives of destruction.

However.

There is also a part of the man which was born anew. One which breathes creation in the aftermath of destruction. That even though he died, he was made reborn into something stronger. Both have made the man into what he is; a warlord and a peacekeeper.

So it would only stand to reason that his pinnacle of power is the synchronization of both halves of him. The reconciliation to both sides of him to remember the man he once was while accepting the man he was now.

I Am Hayden: Hayden when he entered into this form completely sheds the armor of death, becoming something akin to a nightmare. His skin draws right across his frame, almost skeleton like on his lower jaw. It becomes stained black, an increase in muscle mass as he draws out every once of power into physical form. But what is foremost is how his defense changes.

Hayden loses his regeneration completely, completely removing the factor from his arsenal. Instead, it is converted directly into a conventional defense. The blackened skin becoming a 1:1 ratio in it’s durability. The usual energy and conversion based regeneration instead condensed fully. He retains the ability to draw energy from the nearby environment, converting it into raw death matter to augment his defense..

I Am Death:
This is the offensive portion of his new form, and is another fairly simple concept. In this form Hayden has forgone all energy based instead condensing all that latent energy into his being hence the increase in muscle mass. This is what truly showcases his grand master level of speed and strength, using both to their peak ability. Hayden usually cannot go all out due to a plethora of reasons but the most consistent is simply his body giving it before he can actually capitalize on that burst. But his regeneration usually helped with that, but by forgoing energy attacks and defenses nearly entirety he augments his body to not only be able to handle the strain caused; but output even more.

This of course pair’d with his martial based fighting style, or techniques, can be done to devastating effect. The idea of splitting mountains, continents, and large chunks of the earth becomes a shocking reality at the highest scale.

Chapter 1. The Father
Desmond tale does not start at birth, in fact it starts many years beforehand with his Father. At the very start of our tale Hayden wasn’t even a thought but someone who would play a key role in his story was his father and the lineage of which they came from. So before we can tell the tale of Desmond Hayden we must look back into the story of his Father; Erasmus Hayden. This story will begin in the mid years of Erasmus life detailing how who he was and how he met Hayden’s mother but also laying the foundation for what will be known as Hayden clan in the future, a family he will rebuild from the ground up and restore to glory. But for now, lets look into Erasmus.

In the year of 1989 the life of Eramus Hayden was something of wonder, the handsome bachelor had everything going for him to be frank. He stood at a even six feet with a slim but athletic build that came from his job and calling of traversing the world, researching the ruins of his family history. Black slick back hair and a charming smile hid the true power the man had, if one was to meet him they could chalk it up to another young adventurer or archaeologist but in truth this was only half of the story. Eramus possessed a strong connection to his lineage in fact he was one of the only true blooded Macto clan members left roaming the earth and at that he was a prodigy when it came to harnessing their power. He held the title of King of the Eight Gates due to this.

You see members of the Macto Clan where no ordinary humans but a small few who possessed a mutation that allowed them to harness the elements of the earth at the most basic levels, allowing them to manipulate them and at the higher levels manipulate themselves to become that element. Typically a member is confined at most six elements if they are truly skilled in usage and at that only using two at a time, but Hayden’s father was different maybe it was a new mutation or the earth seeing fit to provide someone with a wider range of abilities but he held the extraordinary ability to harness all elements of the world and use them simultaneously. Perhaps it was the destiny of the man to rebuild the clan but so far that's what it seemed at least for him, so the man committed himself to that life once he unlocked his powers for if he didn’t… who would?

The settling of our story takes place in greece, following the lead of a series of scrolls that he found on his last quest in ireland it seemed that a major temple was located somewhere under greece that held the secrets to rebuilding the clan. Naturally, this would cause Eramus to swift make his way to the homeland of his dying clan- the place where it all started was the place it should be revived right? Well he certainly thought so. In the scrolls it described ‘That where we first rose, the land where we met our ultimate failure, is where we will one day return.’ It doesn’t get much more blunt than that to be frank so with the knowledge of their home land he set sail for greece the only problems was he didn’t know where to search for exactly. But he’d cross that bridge when it came across it.

So in greece he searched, oh he searched for months trying to find a clue or some type of evidence that would point him to where he needed to be. No one can say he didn’t try but over the months it’s simply just got harder, while his will never truly died he did eventually meet something that would quell his search- the true downfall of all men: A woman. I’ll spare you the details of everything but this is what you should know; Hayden’s mother was a young woman one that was learning how to become a doctor in the future and was considered in her own right a medical prodigy. While searching in Athens for any connections Erasmus had well gotten into a scuffle with a Hollow and while he was moderately powerful he hadn’t had a meal in days and was growing weaker every day so while he dispatched the Hollow he had succumbed to his wounds in the streets- thankfully he was saved by Hayden’s future mother and little did he know his future wife.

He was taken to a small clinic one that Hayden’s mother aging grandfather would be the doctor off, the wounds to him where extensive from broken bones till the weakening from hunger so when he awoke he found himself not dead surprisingly but feeling better than he had in days. The first thing he always recounts understanding upon waking up was the smell of daisies- before seeing the sight of ‘the most beautiful woman I’d ever be graced with seeing.’ It was hard explaining how he got the injuries but he was able to make up some story about being jumped by thugs, though it was clear Hayden’s mother didn’t quite believe this. None the less he had come to learn her name was Bedelia translating to ‘The one who Ties, Together’. It was safe to say the a pretty face, a wise mind, and the lively aura to her cause Erasmus to fall for her, rather hard to say the least. The feelings were mutual and within the end of the year Erasmus was asking for her to marry him which she happily said yes to with her father blessing.

Erasmus knew being married would never allow him to keep up his quest, so with a heavy heart he decided to forsake his goals of reviving his clan. But on the night of their marriage Erasmus was ambushed by a group of men, restraining him before he could use his powers and rendering him unciousnous he awoken in a room with… his fiancee and her father!? It was then they explained they where the last remaining coven within Greece and when they saw the markings on his body it was clear he held lineage within the family- they told him they had to examine him to make sure he wasn’t some type of interloper or betrayer and found him worthy to be accepted into their coven. While he was conflicted he held a great happiness over the fact that he found a large collection of his clan very distant members but members none the less. So with that he was accepted into the ranks and the marriage happened perhaps they would never be back to glory but it was good knowing he wasn’t the last one out there.

The next year Desmond Hayden was born, the future heir to the clan. Also the man who would accomplish the task his father failed- but not only that to achieve much greater. Time to move on to how the clan was between the marriage of Erasmus and Bedelia.

Chapter 2. The Clan
The Macto clan. A clan that has had a frigid history that rivals that of Desmond in the bigger picture, when Erasmus was inducted into this coven he was graced with the full history of the clan that Desmond would one day rebuild from the ground up; in his image. The clan life was a wide road of divergents and people breaking off till it was nothing but barebones, from their original ideals to their goals of nowadays trying to stay afloat in the modernized world and not alerting the world to their presence. The constant fear of being abducted to be used soldiers in wars they didn’t want to fight or their power harnessed in ways that broke their old tenets; so at the end of they day the blended with the outside world while isolating themselves at the same time. Hiding in public I suppose you could say.

One Thousand Years ago where current day Greece is, their was a meeting that forever changed the life of four men. At the Vardar River opening at the sea these four men pledged to make a group of people that swore to protect this earth while embracing the nomadic nature they all had, this was known as the Macto Communion by the few people that know of their existence. These four men all had extraordinary capabilities to harvest power from the earth and elements around them along with the abilities to give this to other people, these four men had all pledged their lives to this order, this family they now had. No one quite knew how they had these powers but in the modern era it was found out it was a select gene mutation they all had and could share among people but to natural possess this was one within ten million and for four of them to meet up must have been a fated encounter.

That’s the short version one could say of their history so let’s break this down and how it relates to the history of our very own Desmond Hayden. Throughout time the true beginning of the clan has been twisted and changed with few knowing the true beginning, but the definitive beginning was learned by Erasmus from the greek coven; just as the scroll said where the beginning was would be the rebirth. The four men names where Aegeus, Aeneas, Aesop, and Ajax- these brothers of unbreakable bonds would grow close so close that they could be mistaken for blood brothers. There was a time where they all believed each brother would be willing to give their life in the blink of an eye for each and everyone one of them. For the first few years they traveled the lands around them showing their way of life to people, at times being embraced and others being rejected with ridicule till they showed their abilities which surprised people. Sadly they weren't able to turn everyone to their ways but when denied they left peacefully unless asked for demonstration or their lives were in danger. Over the time they began to develope some tenets the clan was to follow; these would dictate their lives and those of the covens.

‘Comradeship’ was the first and the most important tenet to always follow, everyone in the clan and specifically your coven was family. You loved as a unit and mourned as a family when the time called for it, such was the way of the world as they saw it. If you held no love or family what was the point of wealth or power? Corruption of the soul stemmed from lack of love in their eyes and if they could provide that missing feeling perhaps the world would not be on a path of destruction. The next tenet stimmed from the fact that not everyone could possess the supernatural abilties they had and in that guard needed ‘Protection’, the next tenet in the order. To protect your family was the ultimate act and to run or show cowardice was the ultimate failure in their eyes, failure to act is what leads to the most evil in their eyes. The next tenet is considered by many ‘Druidism’ or ‘Love of Earth’ which can be summed up as respect the earth and nature as we all stim from it and the physical body will return to it one day. The next Tenet was a odd one but it was called ‘Destruction’ that came from the need to vanish that which stands in a path of it’s members personal goals, if you wished to become a legend then destroy and obstacle before you. The final tenet and one of the most treasured is what they call ‘True Freedom’ the ability to pursue your own goals without judgement so long as they didn’t harm the clan.

These tenets are the core belief of any coven and while some adopt some extra none will ever remove those to do so would be to deny their heritage. But as the years carried on nothing good could last forever, despite the success that they held it was due to turmoil as every story has. One of the four great founders or sages as they where herald disappeared for two years, no sign or word which worried the three other men but they thought nothing of it. Every man was allowed to pursue his own interest so perhaps he was on a personal pilgrimage now that the clan was established but this was not the case for when he returned he was no longer who he once was. Aesop was completely different in mentality and appearance for when he returned he began to systematically subjugated their covens through some type of infection that left them mindless vassals to do his binding- this couldn’t be allowed so in one final climactic showdown a civil war was waged.

The three others sages mustered the remaining forces to put down the lost covens while developing a technique to meet the tremendous power of Aesop. Sadly it would take the ultimate sacrifice to do so, due to this they would record their final thoughts and the instructions to perform what they could do should this situation ever arise. They had developed a box of various sealings and binding of chi and spiritual energy to seal their former friends, but they also forged a forbidden technique the very one that Erasmus would discover in himself; The Eight Gates unlocking. Each slayered possessed eight inner gates that could be unlocked for tremendous power when needed but each one took massive strain on their body- unlocking of the eighth gates usually ends in death which sadly was a risk they three needed to take.

The final climatic battle was massive, it took place where they first met; at the Vardar River. There was little words exchange but from the accounts seen the sky was ripped open as they said, the river parted, and the earth shattered. When the dust settled the three other sages laid on the ground sapped of all energy dying but had succeeded in their mission of sealing their former friend in the box. In their final dying moments they pleaded for the covens to find peace and hide this box- to never forget their tenets. So was the death of the three first sages and great men. The box was hid in an unspecified location with the instructions to what they did sealed in another location.

For the next few centuries their numbers declined with no one knowing how to re-unlock the hidden slayer mutation in people or grant powers. But through maintaining a hidden nature they where able to survive by bringing potential users in their ranks and making new covens. It was possible for a child to be awaken with powers if both their parents held the gene active or not. So as their numbers declined they barely are around now. This was the history Erasmus learned from; one which broke his heart and confused him- how was he born with the ability to open all eight gates and use all the elements? It was simple he was the only known descendant of one of the sages.

But Erasmus time was done, he had a wife with a child on the way. His life of adventure was at a end; so rather than take up a quest of aiding his people he would raise his son. He would show him the greatness they possessed and teach him to use their abilities… when he’s ready. It’s time to reveal the main character of our story; Desmond Hayden.


Chapter 3. Birth and Childhood

On the day 1990 July 20th was the birth of Desmond Hayden, the unknown heir to the Macto clan along with the child that would one day play a key role in the affairs of the world. But before he was known as the Fallen Soldier, Hero of Furor, or The Man Who Sunders Mountains with Rage he was but a innocent babe in the arms of his mother Bedelia. The origins of his birth and months leading up to it where met with happiness with his father Erasmus nervous and doing everything he could to ease the suffering of his wife best hecould by being there and just helping in general with whatever she may need. None the less Bedelia was always kind even with her slight mood swing and cramps but when the day finally came it was rather.. at a untimely moment.

It was a lovely saturday afternoon, Erasmus was performing some rites for the clan to wish a blessing upon all the members and was planning on reaching out to some covens in ireland. Just as he was on the phone with them he suddenly heard a loud yell for his name accompanies by his father-in-law bursting in with wide eyes before speaking quickling. It was something of along the lines of ‘You dolt your wife water broke we must hurry!’ So he quickly bid goodbye rather rushly to the other coven who seemed a little confused, but he rushed into the room to see his wife being carried to the car to take her to the clinic they owned. You see the birth of a clan member was a big deal so it couldn’t be done at a public hospital at the time due to the rites that must be done and ritual performed. It was alot of ceremonial stuff that just couldn’t be ignored.

When they arrived to the clinic it was a rush to say the least as they got the wet pregnant woman quickly into a room with various members of the coven waiting outside wishing rites and congratulation upon the couple which Erasmus said many rushed thank yous but his mind was on his wife. Once inside they were accompanied by what is called a ‘Preistia’ which is a usually the person besides the coven leader who performs the most sacred rites and guides the coven spiritually. The man would dip some type of herb in a oil and burn it chanting something that Erasmus couldn’t make out due to his focus on his wife but the smell provided a easing for the female and himself along with everyone in the room. He said a few more rites and blessings to them before stepping aside, it was time for the labor and get the baby out.

The whole ordeal lasted roughly sixteen hours before little Desmond was born to the outside world, a joyous occasion for the whole coven and when he was born the Preistia said one more rite before departing the room now that he could feel the slayer energy within him. As for the parents they both marveled at the sight of their newborn babe, the small child that was the offspring of their love and union- as for the naming it was clear he would take the last name of his father but for the first name? They had decided upon Desmond. The reason for this is Desmond means ‘Gracious Defender’ which was the person they hoped he would be one day for the clan. This was the birth and naming of Desmond Hayden, the unknown heir to the Macto and the man who’s rage would be known around the world one day.

Desmond's care was just like that of any other child for the first few months of his birth, his father and mother both cared for him getting time allowed off from both their chosen professions since they worked within the clan. His care was made even easier by the love and gifts given to them by the coven members, seeing as this was tight knit community everything was going pretty well. So for the first year of his life everything was good, Hayden father eventually returned to work with his mother taking care of him for the time being. It was good times when you looked back at how Hayden’s father life was two years ago but now he was making something of it; he had a beautiful healthy son that was exhibiting the behavior of someone with the gene.

When Hayden was roughly sixteen months old he was taking his first walking steps, it was a joyous occasion they filmed and in the modern time the few pieces of film Hayden has left of his family. His first steps was to his father before he fell down into his arms which was followed by his dad saying praise and laughing warmly, it truly was good times for the family and with that came happiness. The coven was alive and at the heart of it a child was always something worth experiencing and seeing. But when he hit the age of three things really began to change at the age of three.

During one night of a particularly bad storm the crying of young Desmond could be heard in his bed, apparently the thunder was scaring him it seemed. But the strange factor was the more he cried the more the storm worsened, this occurrences weren’t rare for kids who demonstrated their abilities early on leading the coven to find out his element was… lightning. It was hard at first to teach him to conquer that fear mostly due to how do you stop a child from being scared of lighting that controls lightning randomly? They had to get it under control before a mess was caused so to stop the problem they placed a temporary seal on his power; they agreed in the future when he was older and understood they would explain his powers and the family origins.

Everything was mostly normal at that point, these where the younger years of his life but we all know what comes next; it was time for young Desmond to enter into… school.

Chapter 4. Schooling and teenage years
Desmond began schooling at the age of five entering into kindergarten which was surprisingly public school something Erasmus questioned the elders about if that really was a good idea, which granted knowing who they where could cause some questions to arise. But they explain the reason why they could remain hidden so well was because they blended into society so well and with his powers sealed for now nothing crazy would arise but it was important Desmond didn’t know the truth till he could be responsible for keeping the secret. That was easing for the now aging father who was now branching into his early thirties, maybe it was time to relax and let his son begin to experience a life he wasn’t granted. So lets looking to schooling and years Desmond spent in the school system.

Desmond entered into Kindergarten rather normally and was like the typical child, hyperactive and always getting into trouble because of stupid reasons like running when shouldn’t be. It was all harmless and in his elementary school days it was easy to see that he was a gifted reader learning to read far ahead of his classmates and understanding history well; doing so and so in mathematics on the average level but did fairly above average when it came to science. It was nothing of crazy signfigance but it did lay the foundation for his next few years in the schooling system. His elementary days he never truly made any lasting friends just hanged out with whoever he felt and whenever he felt- wasn’t everyone friend nor their rival when it came to his elementary days. But when he got into middle schooling was when we started to develope the Hayden we know today.

When Desmond entered into the sixth grade he began to finally develope into what we know today displaying the first signs of his stubborn behaviour when entering into sports, particularly wrestling. He was growing bigger and stronger everyday looking always a ge or two bigger then he really was and when he started to enter into physical training at the age eleven for his sports. It was nice seeing him grow up with the guidance of his father and mother along with what they called ‘relatives’ referring to the coven members Hayden didn’t know about yet. At any rate when he was wrestling and doing drills one could easily see the passion in his eyes when he committed to something refusing to lose on the mat racking up countless wins, even going to nations by the time he fourteen for his age and winning. As for his school work for his middle school years he maintained As and Bs respectivly mostly cause his father wouldn’t let him wrestling if dropped to a C.

Erasmus made it very important to teach Hayden structure in his life while allowing the child breaching into young adult to learn from his own experience but this didn’t mean he ran amuck, he taught him manners and to always show thanks for those who help him. He taught him that family and love was important for life and without it what was the point of achieving everything? His father played a strong role in his life so by the time he was into his ninth grade year he had learned a hefty bit about life and at that he was getting various offers for private schooling due to his athletic performance. But he choose public school everytime and when asked why by his dad he said ‘What’s the point of going to school with all those preppy people? I can get everything I want here.’ Something which could only make his dad chuckle.

By the time he was in tenth grade the coven had decided it was time to inform him of what he was and who they were to him, so they decided between the summer between tenth and eleventh grade for the young man would be the best time. So his dad told him they were going on a hunting trip which was only a small life, as they traveled to the wilderness in his dads truck Hayden drifted to sleep only to wake up at a clearing and see multiple people; those he knew from everyday life. Before he could ask any questions his dad stepped forward telling him to calm down and trust him for now while offering a smile- his grand father stepped forward telling Hayden he was apart of a very special brand of people and from that point he launched into a speech about their origins and what he was. Of course Hayden found this hard to believe but when his grandfather demonstrated their power by turning his complete arm to metal he was aghast. A man stepped forward in robes who was the Preistia that was their at his birth, tapping his forehead and riticing a rite Hayden felt a sudden surge of energy as his sealed powers were unlocked. So that was the day Hayden learned of his abilties and who he was; the day that forever changed life… somewhat.

Hayden took it surpisingly well, he shrugged it off saying it may be his lineage but it doesn’t define who he is yet; what was for him to decide which made his father proud how matured his son had gotten. The next year was his final year of highschool and with that came time to decide to what to do with life, something he hadn’t really given throught to like many people of his generation. One day at school he was approached by a recruiter saying he could offer things no college could; life experience. Maybe it was the glory he showed Hayden or the natural adventurer he was but he signed on for after high school… his parents were shocked to say the least.

The family talk about that was a bit awkward but one of the tenets of the clan was true freedom and if he wished to join the military then they would not stop him. So with that ended his schooling years to move onto the next part of his life; that as a soldier but also… the devastating event that would rock his core and plant the seed of rage within him. The events that happen next will not be pleasant. They will not be happy. You are warned.

Chapter 5. Devastation
The year is 2009, Desmond Hayden just commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant within the greek military as a professional soldier rather than a draftee. This was the year everything went to shit for Hayden and arguably the world. This was the year the Ender War happened and how he became the seed of rage known as The Fallen Soldier. He would lose it all, every bit of the family he had and what he knew of the world sending him on a deadly path that would carry on even deeper into the afterlife. This is the half way point in the man’s life known as Desmond Hayden where we will see the darkness that bred into something deep into him; now lets look into the year before so we can get some back story.

The year 2008 was nothing special for Hayden, he was a cadet in training to commission as a officer for his nation to one day be deployed into combat as a leader among troops. He kept his powers underwraps but it was getting harder for some reason; as if the world was changing around him and he was the only one keen to it- he’s not talk about Hollows either no he had known about them since they unsealed his power’s it was as if something else was stirring the very workings of the world strange enough this was affecting him during his training. It didn’t truly get back till they reached the early months of 2009; the year EVERYTHING changed for the world including Desmond.

The world changed forever during that year; the battle with Ender as they called it caused the mass awakening of people with peoples and for the spiritual and physical world borders to collapse. This was bad and good for it allowed for Hayden not to have to hide his powers but at the same time the greek military was having troubles with all the reports of supernatural creatures and soldiers gaining new abilities along with those trying to dodge the draft now fighting back with said powers. The first year in Hayden opinion was Hell and trying to manage it made his head hurt but he did as he was told as a soldier; till he got a report that shattered his world. They regretted to inform him that Hayden’s home was caught in a terrible fight between supernatural beings and that the area has no reported survivors. After requesting a leave he went to check for himself.

Upon arriving at his old home and coven he saw the devastation up close, bodies were still being cleared from the mess and some he recognized as coven members- most likely also fighting to protect themselves. As he showed his military ID they let him through unknowing of his involvement with the coven most likely, as he searched for his family home he found it- it was nothing but rubble as he arrived. His parents were no where in sight letting him know that whatever transpired here involved them; believing no one could have survived he fell to his knees letting a cry out in rage while punching the ground. If he had never left home this would have never happened; he could have fought with them! He punched the ground till his knuckles cracked and blood leaked onto the ground; sitting on his knees his home- his world has crashed down on his head because of some stupid battle that had made every supernatural smuck in the world stronger. He was angry- angry at the world for allowing this, himself for ever have left, and pissed off that some super powered assholes caused this; this rage would boil in him and drive him forward to find out what happened here. That was the very day Hayden changed, he stopped using his first name using only his last name particularly easy with military use.

For the next three years Hayden did as he was told, fighting whatever fight they wanted him too when he demonstrated his ability to use lightning. His rage was unfixable and his thirst for revenge was insatiable. He wanted to make the world pay for how they wronged him, he wanted to make them feel the pain he was feeling- this pain kept at him for years. It wasn’t till 2012 that after reviewing the last three years of his life that he realized how foolish he was acting- none of the coven would want him this way so from that day forward he took a pledge. He would do what he could to prevent this from happening to good people, he’d be willing to throw away his life to make sure no good person had to experience the pain, lose, and rage he felt. But this is Desmond after all- sadly he wouldn’t get a happy ending but his story wouldn’t end there. From the ashes of his wrath, he would be reborn; with rage as a source of fuel.

The next chapter of his story will uncover the tragic death and rebirth of our hero; after all some men aren't meant to stay dead.

Chapter 6. Death and Rebirth
In the early months of 2012 Hayden held that small mental revitalization which led to him having a stronger sense of justice and morals that were unshakable. He still was a soldier and fought the evil in the world such as Hollows or other evil creatures that brought harm to the good guys. For the first few months it was going good somewhat, it was hard to forget that he had lost everything and every time he thought of it his rage grew- so much so he had to mask it with a false happiness while on the inside he suffered slowly- he wanted to know who killed his family who took away everything he cared about and tore his world up. He was also so scared of what was happening in this new world and what was his place- how could he call himself a hero and not even be able to help those who needed it the most.

In mid july nearing his birthday is when the fateful event occurred that would forever alter his life- it was his death. Everyone has to die sometimes and some would say others were taken to early from this world, something Desmond believed about his family for at this point in his life he was truly alone. If he was to perish he would not be missed save for the combat capabilities he brought to the greek military and that was strained at that. He wanted to just find some reason to keep on striving for something but he just couldn’t despite how much he claimed to want to protect people- his rage ate at him and if he wasn’t careful would be his undoing in the long run. But at any rate lets delve into the how and when Hayden met his untimely end.

He was assigned to a overseas operation in the outskirts of Karakura as some type of diplomatic forces aid with helping clear out Hollows in the forest; due to his powers he was considered as one of the best in the greek military and a dual english and greek speaker. So the deployment was rather nice he got a first class air trip over their along with a bonus in pay along with paid for home in Karakura while the operation was in place; there he would see just how much the world change since the Ender battle and the amount of supernatural people and beings inhabiting the area which to him was a major damn surprise. He thought it wasn’t rare but the sheer volume caught him off guard at first, but he didn’t have long to admire his surroundings. Over the next few days he had standard operations of helping clear out the area of Hollows but it was a particularly bad incident which well was the end of him.

It was the early dawn with the sun almost rising signalling the near end of his shift, but one last call was made for reinforcements in a sector of the forest and Hayden unit was the closest so by default they rushed over to help. They were ill prepared to face the beast before them because what stood menacing over the corpse of a fresh soldier was a Adjuchas level Hollow. It’s eyes locked the soldiers for a moment before it roared dashing at speeds Hayden could barely keep up with- in a instant two soldiers were dead from bites and despite gun fire and specialized equipment it made mincemeat of the men quickly save for Hayden would could put up a semi fight. So the two went at it, Hayden barely surviving before moving a bit slow letting it launched onto his shoulder causing him to yell out in pain, laying on his back he knew this was it but he’d be damned to go out like this. So he reached to his chest gripping the pin on a assortment of grenades he kept for these last stand moments- if he was going down he’d be (trying) to take this thing with him. In a blinding flash he felt immense pain than… nothing.

The next time Hayden opened his eyes it was in the soul society- unlike most he actually remembered his previous life and with that he quickly looked around to see where the hell he was. Then it set upon him- he was dead just like everyone else here and he was what did they call it… a plus? Well that wouldn’t do for this soldier he couldn’t simply let his life end here. Inside him a rage still boiled in his gut that drove him to find some way to still be useful to find purpose and over the time of asking around he found out just how to… by becoming a shinigami.

He found out there was a academy that took in spirits to train them to become shinigami, making them stronger in the process but he also learned it would not be easy and would require him to study again along with take academics- all of this wasn’t stuff he minded. He knew it was going to be a long challenge to do this but he needed to seek out some way to become stronger to aid the world against darkness. Maybe it was a foul dream but needed to be reassured he meant something in life, he needed to prove himself to some extent and by joining the academy would be the first step. So the next chapter in his life was joining the academy.


Chapter 7. Beginnings of a Shinigami
On his way to the academy Hayden mind wondered what would be before him and what it meant to become a shinigami, what would happen once he finished his training and how did he even get accepted? Well he would find out when he arrived at the place, once he did he would see there was a line dedicated to those interested in joining the academy. Getting into the moderately long line he would sigh look ahead to see what was in front of him, it seemed fairly long so he sighed shaking his head- he was going to be here a while it seemed. At least this wasn’t going to be a waste of time or anything, he would at the very least be able to figure out what to do in the meantime.

The people in the line ranged from the slightly strange to looking like they didn’t belong here whats so ever but who was he to judge? A man simply here to gain the power to protect people and feel like his life isn’t worthless in the process, while holding a ball of rage within him he refused to acknowledge. So as he examined the line he kept his judgements to himself while he lost himself in his thoughts. To think he died by his own hand and a Adjucha something that was so… unknown- who would even know of his death? He could only hope he killed the bastard in the process but that was unlikely… those things could take a beating from the rumors he heard. By the time he was finishing his thoughts he was arriving at the front to be greeted by the reception desk.

They asked some pretty standard questions like his height, weight, and a assortment of other personal details also if he held any supernatural powers, which to their surprise Hayden said as a human he did. This cause them to make a thoughtful noise in their throat asking what it was with Hayden replying he could manipulate lightning to a extent which intrigued them, the receptionist then pointed to a room with a door telling him he would be taking a exam to determine if he was acceptable enough for admission which cause Hayden to sigh- it was high school all over again in those regards. With not to excited vigor he went to the room and entered to take his exam, which took roughly an hour for the male.

Hayden for legal reasons can’t tell you what was on the test but he can tell you he passed with flying colors enough to get into the accelerated learn program or class one as everyone referred to it as, normally he would opt for the lower classes but he was eager to graduate as quickly as possible and learn to harness his power. It was just like he thought it was going to be realistically, lots of schooling about shinigami from how they worked to how to become one with a bit of military principle thrown in. When it came to wearing a uniform and learning he was quick on his feet just as he was as a kid and on top of the discipline he learned in the military this was a breeze for him- except when it came to doing Kido. While he wasn’t as terrible as the famed Renji Abari he was pretty shitty in his own right. But through effort and hard work he was consider at least relatively ‘ok’ at it.

Hayden’s academy life was very strict not because of the people or teachers that demanded it but because he forced himself to be strict, he would not lose his discipline in the after life. If anything his time in the academy strengthened his resolve, he dedicated his time to his studies and perfecting the combative aspects of being a shinigami from Zanjutsu and the sway of his blade to his Hoho and Hakuda. But where he truly excelled was with his sword skills and ability to flow or change his style of combat whenever it came to it; his focus in combat was both admired and feared by his peers holding a undefeated record in his training classes. This focus did not come without a price, for every failure he made it caused him to get angrier at himself feeding the rage in his stomach slowly building forcing him to place a even bigger mask on his face on the outside. But none the less after five years he graduated early receiving his Asuchi and he got to choose his division which of course.. he went with the 11th Division.
For the next 400 Desmond Hayden was a member of that division for the longest which was a perfect fit for him, he was used to a rough life that came with soldiering so he did as he was told. There he would learn over time the Gotei simply wasn’t for him and he believed their goals where to narrow and not broad enough for what he wanted. So when the year of 2015 came around he was debating leaving and by march he was already gone transferring to the Vanguard as a member of the initiative starting a new chapter of his life when he met a famous individual: Azure Iramasha.

Chapter 8. Ascension to Power
When Desmond Hayden decided to join the Vanguard he first met his recruiter, then he met Azure Iramasha by chance the leader of the Vanguard aka his future boss. Hayden was surprised to say the least and visibly excited to meet such a powerful person, one that was willing to train him at that much to help him get stronger and used to the area around him including the forest. Now that was a strange thing to take into account considering the forest was the very place Hayden had lost his mortal life but he wasn’t bout to talk about that- after all he was stronger in some regards and ready to learn under one of the arguably best fighters in the world. None the less Azure told Hayden to meet him in the forest and there he had set up some sort of training that involved Hayden fighting hollows, pretty simple for a shinigami till Azure utterly murdered the Hollow then told Hayden to attack him with everything he had. Hayden did so but after he did Azure punched him with the force to shattered most of the bones in his torso telling him this was the way to get stronger- this left quite the impression on Hayden; the most important being you needed a little pain in your life to get ahead. Also Azure was unpredictable.

To say the least he entered into recovery for quite some time, but thankfully he was always a quick healer and this allowed him to be back in the field soon enough. He had gotten stationed in Karakura and primarly the forest to patrol it in it’s entirety which was a hassle to say the least but one he was excited to partake and be apart of, afterall this was his goal! Well this choice to patrol the forest was one that would also make his life quite a interesting one for one day on his patrols he met a young girl being chased… by a gillian. That was a fearful encounter to say the least, in his years this was the first time he saw one in a public area, the girl while he was fighting the Hollow ran but she had used some spell to do something but the point was she ran and left Hayden to deal with the threat on his own a tiring feat in it’s self. But this was one of the steps of getting him stronger and to be frank it made him start to see the forest as a bigger threat.

Hayden always had luck with finding lost girls in the forest it seemed for only a few days later on another patrol he felt the odd rise of spiritual energy deeper within the forest. Deciding to radio it in he went to investigate what was happening when he stumbled upon the sight of a young girl who looked his age fighting off a group of adjuchas, a feat pretty big in it’s self. Of course Hayden did the heoric thing coming in to aid them quickly dispatching of the weakened enemies before offering aid to the girl who held a stubborn attitude and aura. Through some talking he learned a bit about them and their name was Melissa or Mel- after a bit of more talking Hayden convinced them to join up the Vanguard quoting they needed more strong members; which she surprisingly agreed to. Perhaps this would be a good friend in the future.

But despite all the faith and good tidings Hayden was having it would all come back to spite him, for a day came that despite how much power he gained and people he helped he would fail. That day came when he met Wolf Lionus the man who would become a focal point in the tight ball of rage within him amplified after their fateful encounter. On a temporary patrol in the wasteland due to reports of high levels of spiritual activity they sent Hayden as a scout unit but when Hayden arrived to the town in question it was a literal massacre, everyone in the town was dead. But it wasn’t a ghost town for a single man was there in the center, the man who had committed this atrocity. Naturally, Hayden engaged him in combat with all his might releasing the rage within him that was building for years going so far as to cut his own arm off to keep fighting against wolf but in the end despite the massive amounts of carnage they caused from ripping the ground apart to Hayden losing his arm Hayden lost the fight… but he left a lasting impression on the man one that would cause him to grant him a ‘gift’. Grabbing Hayden by the next he would stab him in the heart with his hand implanting the essence of Death into Hayden granting him death matter, enough to keep him alive and adapt to his body- due to this his arm came but not before he passed out in a crater.

Hayden survived the encounter and was found by Vanguard forces and was immediately sent to Karakura for medical aid due to the severity of his wounds and the beating he received, but his condition managed to stabilize on his own due to the highly potent, but unstable, Death Matter coursing through his body. When he awoken he would find Melissa there to greet him surprisingly who actually showed concern over him something he hadn’t felt from someone else in.. years. It got the better of him and he came off a bit strong with how he felt about her father causing her to be upset, she couldn’t bare to see him go after her father straining their friendship. Hayden felt a ping in his chest, one that still sticks with him as he thinks about that moment; she was truly something else to him and one of the few goals in his life is to patch that bridge up. She made him understand what it felt like to be cared about again so she always held a special place within his heart.

Hayden recovery took some time but after it he began meeting various people, some many in fact that it was hard to keep up with. He recruited some more people into the Vanguard while trying to understand the new substance coursing through his veins merging with his physical being due to his Slayer nature. It was also at this time Hayden was strongly insisting on rebuilding his clan seeing as he possessed the abilities too and with the world in it’s current shape it proved much easier too. He began meeting other Iramasha and even a Sugi at one point leading to quite a list of people he was beginning to know, but this didn’t cause him to slack in his training. In fact the encounter with Wolf made him even more willing to get stronger; so much so that his rage was one of his pivotal aspects of his personality.

When he was not doing his job apart of the Vanguard more and more of his time went to his night time training increasing the ferocity of it along with how much he was doing it; propelling his body and mind to new heights. He learned to channel his rage into a strong state of focus to allow him to fight more effectively under it’s influence even going so far as to develope his own sword play style to complement his free flowing style. Everyday he was getting stronger enough to start turning the eyebrows of people such as that of Shatari Yuudeshi one of the Wardens of the Vanguard. This would lead to the two entering into an agreement to do a mission to help try to cleanse the forest of all the building up of negative energy and beings.

The Forest Revival was what the operation was code named and it was fitting at the time considering their duty and what they where aiming to accomplish with with it. But that was only apart of it all for when they got there with their forces it was a small scale war with various people fighting and what not; but the true handling was with Shatari and Hayden with their small group of elite warriors who was dealing with this quickly. But when Shatari zapped Hayden with some of his energy he exhibited a strange ability to expel the energy rather violently something he was known for since his encounter with wolf but… something went strange. Hayden began to feel sick and feel immense pain as his energy levels began to rapidly expand as his Death Matter began to go into a hyperactive form causing him to begin to leak energy and.. explode so violent he vaporized most beings within a one mile radius. It truly was a devastating event and when it subsided few were left, the operation was titled a success but when Hayden reformed he was extremely weakened and taken to a medical facility where they monitored him for days. Thankfully he was released quickly without any reprimand, but the rage and sorrow he felt was overwhelming for him personally due to all the innocent lives he had taken with that blast; these negative feelings where able to manifest in his inner world creating a hollow- but that wasn’t the end of it. Hayden blast had sucked in all the souls caught in the blast forming some type of super hollow within his inner world that was rekting his emotions even more than they already where.

The aftermath of all this was terrible to say the least, he also had to go test some sisters but that encounter ended horribly with him rescheduling and left a bad taste and impression on him and the sisters, this caused him to see help from the best experts on this sort of thing: Zin Yuudeshi. Scheduling a meeting was easy enough but he was the next person Hayden had to turn to leading to a new chapter in the Shinigami life, once he finally gotten control of his death matter it seemed another would arise and his inner hollow would be the next one. It was time to face the music and meet these troubles head on and defeat these beasts for they consumed him in both mind and heart.

Chapter 9 . Inner turmoil
Before Hayden even was ready to go back into the field he was sent on a assignment to go meet with some sisters as they where potential Vanguard agents. The encounter was less than favorable leading to a bad impression in which Hayden rescheduled, his death matter was making him even more unstable which he was managing to keep it underwraps but he knew he was going to need specialized help sooner or later; so he went to the best person in mind which in this case was Zin Yuddeshi the Vizard King as they called him. This meeting would prove extremely fruitful for Hayden in the long run but it all started when Hayden arrived to his office.

When Hayden arrived he was told to wait and behold Zin Yuudeshi King of the Vizards had graced Hayden with his presence, enough so that he was willing to help with his problem. The main concern was dealing with how to manage the Hollow with it’s immense power from all those souls, the years of negativity inside Hayden amplified by all this didn’t help either. But the Vizard King was used to this, using the Hogiyoku to perform a sort of mass Konso on Hayden’s soul help pacify the Hollow a bit while keeping its strength. This helped Hayden learn to finally be able to tame the negativity within him while enlightening to how much rage he held inside of him.. but something strange occurred. His death mattered took on a personification telling him that if he was to every truly saite his revenge against Wolf Linous he would need to master every aspect of his being including his rage, his Hollow, His Zanpakutō, and his Death Matter.

None the less Hayden didn’t have much recovery time, he was sent into the field again in the forest where he met a young shinigami who was just as strong as he was when he was first joining the Vanguard. He saved her from some hollows and told her if she wished to become stronger she should join the Vanguard something she happily did, he sorta picked her up as a little sister in the Vanguard. It seemed Hayden had a knack for meeting women in the forest and recruiting them into the Vanguard; maybe that’s why Azure promoted him because soon enough he was holding the third seat in the initiative and a Lt. Colonel rank within the Vizard Corps.

With his new found goals of mastering himself and every aspect of his being he saw it fit to return to his roots, that maybe it was time to reestablish the Macto clan to it’s former glory and perhaps even higher heights. So with the amount of Yen he had been saving up over the years he bought a large facility within Karakura deciding to make this the site of the Macto rebirth, stating when asked about it ‘Every weary traveler is welcome to my home.’ While it was slow getting the clan up, through doing some good deeds and locating people with the potential gene he was able to unlock their powers to the point he had about twenty people in the clan scattered throughout the world; but that wasn’t enough but for now it would do.

Hayden unlocked his Shikai in the most Bizarre way when he looked back on it, he met some type of shinigami or Iramasha (he never found out which) who forcibly placed him in his inner world to battle his Zanpakutō. The battle was fierce as he was forced to fight a inverse shikai version of himself but just on the cusp of defeat he found the strength to keep fighting and push through. In a fit of rage he unlocked his shikai speaking the name of his Zanpakutō and gaining a black set of armor while his sword increase in thickness causing him to gain a significant power boost enough to win the battle gaining his Zanpakutō respect and his Shikai that day.

Desmond next point in life was preparing people for the coming war against shadowfall that people knew was on the horizon, so he had committed himself to ruthless training drills for their ground forces along with making sure his body was in optimal condition. While looking for training partners a new recruit stepped forward, a rather well-endowed woman who seemed very focused on fighting someone strong and she saw Hayden’s challenge. So they sparred off with a intense session one that almost killed her mostly because Hayden almost let loose due to seeing she could use lightning; but he managed not to do so. Their training was finished just before Azure graced them with his presence but so left leaving Hayden and Elysia to talk for a bit before departing as semi-friends.

The climatic battle Hayden was apart of for the Icelandic war was something that will stay with the man for years to come, the amount of rage it built into him has no bars. He became a fury of rage during the battle with Saiko someone he wished he didn’t have to. They both fought throwing death in their wake that eventually ended in a stalemate with Hayden passing out entering into Hollowfication and receiving even more of a beating from a Doctor Hebi he vaguely recalls. None the less he managed to get out well his Hollow did getting him to a Vanguard medical area before passing out, this display would cause him to be selected for a special squad developed by Kamui Cruor.

When he was able to walk again and fight he had gotten word that Kamui Cruor was interested in him joining a squad dedicated to learning how to fight stronger people as a unit. None the less he accepted but that wasn’t the only thing he was doing to better himself, he had decided to begin training his body again on his own perfecting his mastery of his physical prowess of strength and speed while developing and polishing up his custom style of Zanjutsu called ‘Hellhound’. Hayden’s been to hell and back by this point but he knew he needed to keep fighting and striving that he was getting closer to his goal- but he couldn’t shake the rage he was feeling as if it was an embedded part of him.

Then a Hammer fell from the sky, it literally fell from the skype destroying a city on the coast which he immediately responded to with Vanguard aid. It was a grizzly site accompanied by some sort of hammer that was drawing people to it which Hayden seal in a death matter ball now that his control was at a much higher and enhanced level. But sadly before the extraction he had to deal with a Arrancar that resembled a child who was trying to kill him so he… dispatch of him. Permanently. Hayden may not have showed it at the time but he felt some sorrow for having to slay the kid, but he believed he did what he had to do as a soldier.

The next point in his life was his operation to clean Somalia of the Hollow infestation and take it under the banner of the Macto clan which was done in less than a day with his forces. He began operations to help rebuild the city making the port open again which allowed for a higher trade revene to come through, making sure to invest in rebuilding the cities and infrastructure; he planned to catch them up technology to the likes of Japan over time but over the time of a month he managed to establish the nation again with a high population of Slayers along with civilians and with that came Ethoipia who wanted to experience what Hayden dubbed: The Revitalization.

Hayden was… changing in both mind and power with his power, he didn’t want to be known as the Fallen Soldier anymore; that title was beneath him now. Instead he heard the astral call of Cirno rallying Heros and he decided this was the best place to go to reinvent himself and when he arrived she did just that. She explained to him how rage was apart of his being and just as his death matter told him; he needed to accept it to be the beacon he wanted to be. So when he left there he left with a goal; to embrace the new side of him ushering in a new era for Hayden one where he would accept the aspect of rage inside of him and seek his goals. When he departed he took on a pilgrim disappearing for little under two months. This is what happened in that time.

Chapter 10. Rebirth of Rage (2016)
The world was changing for Desmond in a way he wasn’t quite sure the old him could accept, with each passing day he found himself changing his way of thinking to accompany his new life style. Ever since the meeting with Cirno he couldn’t help but think back to how he first started in all this, a chip on his soldier with something to prove to the world like a child. He still did have something to prove but this go around he was ready to tackle the world on his own terms and he knew the hard would he would need to go through to reach what he wanted. So the answer to this was to return to where it all started, the roots that sprung the man 400 years ago and even longer than that when he looked back to the grand scheme of things; it was time to go to the Vardar river the place where his lineage first started.

Now this wasn’t an easy task for the man to say the least, this place was on the edge of shadowfall controlled land so his pilgrimage needed to be swift and silent to draw no attention to himself; but considering the secluded and hidden area in which it was he knew since studying the scrolls of his family during the downtown he was afforded in the Vanguard. He decided to traverse via land then crossing via boat from africa to get to the small island/delta that split the Vardar river, the island in which his lineage was first started with the four sages meeting here to start their clan which has survived through the times and held up by the sole heir; Desmond. When he arrived to the area he found it to be heavily surrounded by trees providing a natural cover as he entered into the dense island forest. As he traveled through it he could feel the literal energies that was left from all those years ago that connected to his slayer nature; from the meeting of the sages to the final climactic battle they held. In war a rush to say the least.

There he discovered what looked to be a stone archway with a set of heavy bronze doors that looked like they hadn’t been opened in literal years leaving them rusted shut. As Hayden reached out to touch it he felt the multiple surrounding energy that also sealed this place, powerful magic and spiritual energies from back then warded this place. But as it made contact with his true slayer bloodline it released it’s wards in a power burst of air that even forces Hayden to step back a second before the doors rumbled breaking the rust as the swung backwards opening to Hayden. It was rather eerie to be honest to Hayden so when he felt the cool wet air down there he knew that it must have been connected to a cave system.. it was no time to hesitate so he entered going down into the forsaken temple to see what his lineage awaited him.

As he went deeper down the stairs the torches that lined the walls began to light up still active on the wards and magics placed on them over 1,000 years ago which was a testament to how well this place was taken care of back in the old days and the powers that controlled them. As he kept walking he could see the walls where some type of mural lined the walls that as he slowly walked down the hallway was the telling of their origins up till the sages final battle. It was truly a masterpiece in Hayden’s eyes and it cause him to wonder who would paint this, what of the last dying true clansmen would have finished this; well it seemed he would get his answer for as he reached the end he saw a skeleton collapsed on it’s knees almost as if it died kneeling and praying. This place clearly was extremely important as he went deeper into the tunnel.

Finally as he reached the end the end he was blinded for a second as a large amount of torches lit up revealing a open area that held a underground pond on the other side which was bigger than a olympic sized pool. The whole size of the open area was about four to five football fields in length which was extraordinary where they was located meaning some ancient slayer magic must have kept this place hidden under the river and from flooding or collapsing over the years. At the front of the pond was a podium made of black onyx most likely formed by a slayer and on it was a large black leather bound book something which intrigued him as he made his way over to it. He slowly touched it before gasping as memories of the first slayers was directly implanted into his mind causing him to fall to a knee before standing up looking at the book wide eye’d. He catiously reached out to touch it again grasping it as he felt the strong energies warding it that was released upon his touch, as he opened it he saw in ancient latin was titled: The Magnum Opus of The Sages

Now who could blame Hayden for being a little interested in reading about this, it was afterall a series of abilities and techniques along with the first written tenets of the Macto clan at his disposal. This was a book that contained some of the most powerful and forbidden techniques of the slayers along with the sages personal thoughts and commentary of perfecting their powers to become the forces they were known for but most importantly.. it detailed the final battle and how they won. They described of a series of eight gates within a Slayer body similar to that of the Chi of humans but slightly altered. These eight gates could be opened for massive amounts of power temporarily at the cost of strain on the body and potential death for those not strong enough to use it. But it detailed how to unlock these gates but highly advised they should only be used in place of last resorts; either this was fate or Hayden being damned lucky because he chuckled. It looked like he would be having some fun.

But before he could work towards those skills he had a very important goal in his mind and it was unlocking his Bankai before anything else. It was a must by this point because despite the amount of time he spent here he needed to leave knowing he at least mastered his Zanpakutō by this point, so closing the book he set his gear down including a large backpack that held the supplies he brought to survive for the next two months along with all he needed to hunt and filter water. He planned to be here for quite some time and when he left he would leave much stronger than he ever was before and when the world saw him again; he’d be a different person entirely. As he removed his Zanpakutō from his back he knew he would need to start learning to manifest it into the inner world so he sat down beginning to enter into a meditative state which in would remain in for two days as he attempted to bring his Zanpakutō to the outer world.

For two days Hayden fasted and didn’t eat or drink to show his dedication to the fact he was ready for his Zanpakutō and that his will to achieve this would not falter. Each hour that passed he felt himself growing hungrier but he ignored it as he focused on the burning sensation in his body to grow stronger to master every aspect of himself as he was told; he wanted it more than he wanted to breath, eat, or sleep. He wanted it so bad that he refused to yield to every tired fiber in his body because he knew that the moment he flattered he would lose the respect his Zanpakutō was mustering for him- despite the respect he already earned he knew that he would have to prove to the stubborn dragon that he was worthy of his Bankai and by doing this he was paying homage to him. It was a symbolic gesture of peace between user and Zanpakutō in Hayden eye’s; while they shared a sense of Honor Hayden still needed to show he understood the words he was told so long ago. So the hours ticked away second by second and then hour by hour as he remained silent and unyielding in this regard. But it would soon pay off.

After two days of unyielding silence, hunger, and lack of sleep he felt a surge of energy from within him revitalizing him to as if he had just stepped into this giant cavern enough to force him to open his eyes to see quite the sight before him. Before him in all of it’s majesty was Hayden’s Zanpakutō spirit in a humanized form which looked to be a tan male with golden eyes looking at him. The man wore clothes similar to Hayden but the sword he carried was massive to say the least with a set of fanged teeth just above the blade poriton, Hayden looked at them noticing the scales dotting their face along with the dragon like tail behind them and ears indicating to his dragon nature something Hayden had to smile about knowing his Zanpakutō was in front of him- but that sword was strange to say the least.

“Desmond. You have summoned me; you have proved your honor and for that I will allow you the chance to prove your tenacity and strength to achieve Bankai. But do not think this will be easy; I boast but your Zanpakutō powers and Death Matter. Prepare yourself.”

Hayden barely had time to stand as he was forced back into the wall by the speed and force of which the manifestation crashed into him sending him sliding backwards as he used his Zanpakutō to block the strike. He was able to grunt thrusting his head forward headbutting allowing him the time to activate his shikai and really enter into battle with his Zanpakutō. It was a crazy site to see Desmond going all out against his Zanpakutō using nothing but his sword without any other powers, this battle would be determined by the flow of his blade and his tenacity to survive and not give into anything. It was just that simple for each of the men, to never yield in the face of imbedding doom was what they both stood for, so the question was what happens when two unstoppable forces meet each other? Well they kept going till one force stopped or they destroyed everything around them and thankfully the warding on this place kept their destruction hidden while making sure it didn’t collapse on top of them.

This battle carried on for three whole days with each of them slowing by varying amounts, Hayden shikai had long broken down sustaining a number of wounds with his Zanpakutō doing the same. But neither refused to yield to the other, but Hayden resolve was unbreakable in this moment with his rage finally surfacing he gained the upper hand. His Zanpakutō connected once more with the others before he roared using his free hand grab his opponent's blade slicing deep into his hand as he forced it into the ground, head butting him and jumping forward flooring him with his shoulder forcing them both to the ground as Hayden pressed his Zanpakutō to the Manifestation neck with eyes filled with rage before relaxing as his irises went back to their hazel from maroon. He had won after five days of turbulences from from trying to manifest it to battling it for three days. It only offered a slight smirk and closed it’s eyes in defeat before dispersing into energy being absorbed into Hayden body and Zanpakutō; he felt the overwhelming urges to speak the sacred word. The one that he had strived for and the pinnacle of his own Shinigami strife and willpower.

“Bankai.”

For the next week Hayden took off to recover while also exploring the ruins which turned out to be much larger than he thought it to be, the underground main area held a series of doors that connected to different portions of the underground temple enough to substance a faction should it ever be discovered. If they ever took greece back it would make one of the more important places for Hayden and his people; quite the place it turned out to be. But for the week of rest he took time to study the library he found which held many scrolls about theories of the slayer genes along with some high class techniques and even a few forbidden ones that all seem to have some major drawback to them. But what Hayden studied most was the Black leather book that he found when he first came in, he wanted to learn about what these eight gates where and what it meant to release them in a slayer.

Upon his studying he learned that the eight gates where central points of energy within a slayer body that allowed them to harness their energy into the physical world and their binding to the world both spiritual and physical. Their was a order to which the gates were unlocked in order for their power to be harnessed but it appeared with each unlock it seemed to put more strain on the body and by the final 8th gate the sages could only hold it for five minutes without dying but suffering torn muscles and broken bones with energy reserves damn near gone and anything after brought death- the sages in their final battle holded it for a little over ten minutes causing their deaths but that was pushing the limits.

Desmond Held alot of work to master in the time of two months so he decided to shelf the eight gates for the last thing he would master in the timeframe; but that didn’t mean he would slack oh no the very next day after his week break he began to develop his individual techniques adding and unlocking techniques when it came to all aspects of his being from his Zanjutsu to his death matter capabilities. Everyday began at sunrise and every day went till midnight as he attempted to perfect himself into the perfect vassal of war and rage while embracing these parts of him. He was ready to become something else; someone new in the meantime. In the last month of his training he committed himself to unlocking the eight gates a task which proved daunting and nearly killed him in the process. But when he was finished he left the temple promising to return one day, but he did take something with him and that was the black book. Before resealing the place and leaving he sighed knowing that it may be years or months before he could return, but deciding best to not dwell on those thoughts he took his boat to set sail for Somalia the country he had established to see how they were doing with his system he set up.

When he returned he was met with some of his most trusted commanders in the Macto clan along with some political leaders in Somalia and Ethiopia, they detailed that the country was in working order and improving every day with the working port in their capital. The reports of Hollow attacks where at a all time low due to the constant patrols leading to a somewhat renaissance for the once poverty stricken country; this included ethiopia as well so life was going good for him. He radioed to the Vanguard that he would be in karakura by next week.

The turbulences Hayden faced throughout his life had weighed on him so heavy that he never thought he’d find peace with his being but he did, he went back to look at everything he had accomplished and he was please. But this didn’t mean he was done by any chance he was on a roll and with the closing of one chapter of his life he was ready to begin a new. Desmond Hayden was no longer The Fallen Soldier no… he had ascended past that title in his life.


Chapter 11. (2016-2022)

The years which followed are well documented, but should be addressed in a concise format to establish his history. The most notable thing which occurred in the year of 2416 was the establishment of the Kingdom of Vastime. A conglomeration of African states under one banner, brought to the forefront by Desmond. His reasoning for doing so was to create a super state that rivaled Shadowfall in their capacity to contest them. As stated early in his history, this super state would rise to prominence becoming one of the foremost Earth-based forces holding nominal alliance with The Vanguard.

Desmond at this point would meet someone who would become vital in his life, Abalia Sesshouin. First as a contact and friend met through Mirja Eeola. She would soon become his personal aide, and in time become a woman whom he valued dearly. While many notable events transpired in his life during this timeframe, only certain events stand out among others.

Particularly the Moon Terrorist attack launched by Shadowfall in retalian for the events of the Greenland War. In this attack Azure Iramasha was killed, a mystery which still plagues Hayden to this day. Hayden took part within it, battling against the main forces and standing against Neoveta with a small group of allies. Eventually the attack was repelled, but not before the Vanguard moon base sustained massive damage.

In the follow up to this, Hayden was elected Reagent General of the Vanguard, something which was met with some controversy due to perceived bias on his part. This would pass however the need for a more stable and united Earth force resulted in the merging of The Vanguard, Vizard Corps, and Yayjuu. Hayden would adopt the position as Chairman of Defense and Support. A position he would serve for years while also reigning as King-Militant. The formation of this organization led to one of the most powerful Coalition forces on Earth, much to Hayden’s approval.

For the remainder of 2417 to 2418 Vastime underwent rapid militarization and planning to undertake one of the largest realm wars to date. In these years Desmond spent much time recruiting people to his nation, and also cultivating alliances with select individuals. While he often failed to be as verbose as some, his steady track record and earnest intentions earned him friends among Demons to Iramasha alike. Meanwhile, his close working relationship with Abalia would gradually blossom into a genuine affection on his part.

In these years and time frames, he found himself often struggling in private with the great burden he places upon himself. For he knew that once this conflict ignited, many good men and women would be sent to their deaths in a battle that had no promised victory. Furthermore, his feelings towards Abalia would begin to become untenable as the looming reality of his death approached.

Shortly before the war, he would write a series of letters to be sent in the event of his death. Confessions that he hoped would never be read, and some which could never be read. In these letters a rare moment of humanity was revealed, the truth and fragility of his own life placed bare. The regret he suffered from not being the ideal son, and the realization that his family never wanted a hero; merely their boy.

And of course, a letter written to Abalia. His feelings to be delivered upon his death. It was the cowardice of it all that truly got to him, not wanting her final memory of him to be one of true cowardice. In what he considers his greatest moment of resolve, he delivered the letter to her believing she could never return such feelings. And it was the greatest surprise, when Abalia asked him to marry her.

The woman who could not feel like a normal woman, wished and hoped to love him as deeply as he loved her. And so he married her.

Those months of his life proved to be bitter-sweet as he prepared himself for the coming war. A war which found it’s way to his doorsteps. The events of World War IV affected Vastime and Desmond profoundly, the loss of life to such a degree he feels a heavy guilt. He took to the frontlines in Karakura to battle Ravan and Mana, the respective king and queen of Shadowfall alongside an allied force. It would be here that Desmond would slay Ravan, killing the king. But it was not he who struck the killing blow, as a foreign entity known as ‘Death’ took over his body whom be the murderer.

This actions would have repercussions no one could predict.

To not skim the details of the war, it was a brutal conflict but ended in a timespan that many were surprised by. A victory for Earth results in the removal of Shadowfall from Earth, a period of true healing could begin. But Desmond was left with one final grievance to address. A Danava known as Liu. A friend of his, a deeply valued friend and ally whom held a position of such importance in Vastime it could not be overlooked.

And she wanted blood. His blood. In a moment which is hot debated by some, the passionate encounter ended in a… strange way. Desmond would marry her, and give her a child. A life to replace the one taken. A strange relationship, although the foundation was laid many years ago- it was something that not many expected. It remains a shadow over his life, but one he cannot shy away from.

He did what he thought was best for his friend and for his kingdom. But in his most private moments, he buried a painful thought: That he did not do right by his true love. That even with her approval he had harmed her. But to her credit she took no issues with it. His marriage sustained itself, and for some years he knew peace.

Sure the occasional issue of the world arised but Desmond was allowed to witness the birth of his children, to hold them. To somewhat step away from the role as merely a King. He was allowed to be a man, and to love in a way which he had not. These things are regarded as the happiest moments of his life but sadly they would be brought to a screeching halt.

All those years ago when Wolf Lionus ‘killed’ him, he placed a seed within him. Death Matter was not merely some foreign brainless energy he could continually borrow power from. It was a cancer, a seed of destruction which had blossomed during his encounter with Ravan. Desmond knew that eventually he’d be lost to that monster, and made plans for when such a thing happened. Plans and promises to others to ensure he did not become another threat to Earth.

A man would walk into his life, one who would prove to his one of his greatest rivals, friends, and enemies all wrapped into one. Cyrus. The new leader of the Vandenreich who’s ideals and beliefs contrast sharply to his own. Kindred spirits that could not exist in either’s world, breeding hatred in Hayden and compassion within Cyrus.

It would take the words of his wife and an encounter with Cyrus to change the hostile relationship to one of mutual respect. An enemy whom he respected, a rival whom he had to work with. When Minatumi Harbour was attacked they both placed aside all else to do one thing: protect the lives of innocents. This simple actions readjusted his views, and Hayden demanded a promise from his tragic friend: To kill him before he falls to his internal monster.

Unfortunately, that promise would not be realized. In late 2420 Desmond Hayden would fight a losing battle against the host which sought his body and soul. In a desperate bid, he imprisoned himself underground while the majority of the world viewed him as dead. In this cage, this prison, constructed to hold him, it locked him alone with an entity far more malevolent that any foe he’s fought. He lives, fighting, every moment of every day against a foe whom he has no chance of victory.

But he holds out, waiting. Refusing to simply give in. Until the moment in which victory is no longer impossible.

The sun rose another day, the ending had not come.

But not for all.

Deep within the Earth, far deeper than anything held a right to, a small room enforced by the deepest magic and science the multiverse could muster. Perhaps within the same tier of prisons the deepest layers of Hell could provide. A single entity, or rather two merged into one, was imprisoned hopefully to never feel the warm glow of the sun on their skin. A being which sought to do nothing but bring the destruction of the world as they knew it, and a man who sought to hold that back.

It was perhaps ironic that a soul so dedicated to the pursuit of good, had been condemned to a personal hell.

The concept of time had faded long away in this darkest dungeon, leaving only the two in their never ending contest of strength. Though Desmond Hayden, The Iron King, had lost his body he retained his defiance. Every second, of every day, he prevented the monster from drawing upon his full strength. In freeing Hayden of his body, he had raised his spirit to the highest echelons of martyrdom. So he fought, a war of constant attrition enough to prevent whatever plan he had from coming to fruition.

That does not mean Death did not tempt Hayden, mock him, do everything in his power to utilize his life against him.

“You fight so hard for a world which has abandoned you, which threw you away the moment it had the chance. You died pointlessly, as a human. Another faceless soldier among many, wiped out in the blink of an eye.”

A vibration ripped through the cage, shaking the foundations. Hayden’s mind tightening around itself within the shared consciousness of his body. It was another day of abuses, his mistakes and insecurities laid bare.

“You built a nation of sandcastles, crumbling away with every moment you are gone. How does it feel to know, to feel, the slow death of all that you built?”

He knew this wasn’t true. Even if he could not feel the warmth of his people, he left the nation in good hands. In the hands of his beloved, of the people he instilled values into. He knew this day was to come. A day in which he would not sit on the throne.

Perhaps it felt his thoughts, or merely knew that him so that it could guess. A sharp bark of inhuman laughter echoed in his head.

“You truly believe that unfeeling woman, who never loved you, can run that pitiful kingdom you built? That she will uphold the vision you had? Had you not had the potential to be my vassal, had I not granted you power, you wouldn’t be anything. The life you built, the women you love, is built on delusions of grandeur. Your life, Desmond, is nothing but failures.”

A low rumble, a sinister mocking laugh. A voice which did nothing but taunt him.

Perhaps the reason it hurt him, was that there was undeniable truth to the monster’s words. That no matter what he believed, what he wished for, he left a world which was incomplete. A wife whom he wished to love him, so desperately so, that could not. A nation which still was in it’s founding. A family, which now lacked a father.

For all his achievements, Desmond had failed his grandest goals. Now he was alone, in a personal hell, with a monster which had eternity to torture him.

But that did not mean he would fall victim to such ministrations. Perhaps he had failed all he loved, and perhaps, he held onto false hopes, but was that what made Desmond himself?

The words of his beloved echo’d through his head once more: ‘You see that which you hold to be impossible, and still you pursue it.’ A pause.

He thought of her, for a moment. To think of her pale features, her mute yet powerful aura. The look of silent determination and willfulness in her eyes. Yes it was good to remember that. He recalled her face. Good.

‘To seek the impossible… That is something I want to do.’

He shall endeavor upon the impossible once more. His mind would not shatter, his soul would remain. He needed but to last one more second, and when that second passed, but another more.

The strength of will of Desmond could be felt by the creatures. A sickly feeling of anger emitted. It was not pleased.

  • Comments/Notes: Due to the length of the app, and how extensive I'm doing my check, I'm going to take each review a post at a time and you are going to correct them post by post to save myself energy.

    Enhanced Durability- Hae has a good amount of durability thanks to Hayden and his own Hierro. This armor he has called ‘Hierro’ is around the advance level but is able to defend against strikes from most blades and range weapons. He can also take a good thrashing before it truly begins to drag him down without any outside factors- being thrown through buildings or even able to take a Cero Oscura head on and being able to keep fighting on. His durability rivals that of Hayden Shikai.

    The bold is where I have the problem. A cero Oscura is a pretty powerful attack. So, with that being the case, I'd assume he'd take a fair bit of damage from it. And given he has advanced durability, there is no way he'd just "lolshrugitoff". So correct that and rewrite it to be that he can endure an attack of that magnitude, but he wouldn't be unscathed.

    Possession- Hae in extreme circumstances such as Hayden entering into a critical condition or near death can take control over Hayden physical body to induce Hollowfication. This will heal 50-75% of hayden wounds as their bodies are switching places placing Hayden in the inner world as the Hollow deals with the threat or escapes. When Hayden hollowfied he will gain the technique and skill of his hollow along with his power for the duration of it- to break the possession Hae must get Hayden to safety or the Hollow is sufficiently beaten up forcing Hayden to take control of his body- although he will be quite healed most likely. When he take possession Hayden body turns more hollow also donning his mask.

    I'd keep it at 50% and no further when it comes to his healing.

    I Want the World Baby~: This move of the Hollows stems from the greed of power inside of it’s mind and in turn Hayden’s own greed to gain power quicker contrasting how much he seeks it. The Hollow has the ability to release large amounts of a crimson like energy to coat the surrounding landscape and literally suck the energy and power out of the area including people. When it comes in contact with someone over the course of one post if they do not remove the spiritual like leech of power they will begin to lose ten percent their power which Hae takes and it increases by ten percent every post by the tenth post they will be so weakened from energy lost they will not be able to move. This applies for people on his tier bracket if they are above it decreases by 2% by every tier they are above, one could remove it by destroying the crimson energy on their body or increasing their power to overload it. Of course at the end of the thread he loses any upgrades from power and the other person will have their power return.

    I would lower the amount he can take from a person to about 40-50% as that should be sufficient enough for an absorption power of this caliber. Furthermore, that is also the limit he'll be able to retain from characters overall. So if he got ten percent from another character, and ten percent from another and twenty percent from a 3rd character; that would be it.

    Additionally, as long as people can counter it, I'm fine with allowing it as it is.

    Rage of the Mad Lightning God: Hayden’s Hollow can harness his slayer like powers allowing for him to be able to use lightning, well he uses this in conjunction with his rage to produce a red lightning that has a special side effect to it. When he strikes people with this lightning he harness he can mentally drain the rage from them increasing his own people through this, which increases the potency of his attacks and lightning. It’s important to take into account that this lightning can be transfered from object to person or object to object. The Obivious objects to this is if they arn’t angry he can’t gain power and if they have advance or higher focus they can weaken the effects and power sap.

    You might want to rewrite that. I don't understand what you said. The best I can guess is that you meant he can reduce the rage/willpower in someone with one of his strikes?

  • Comments/Notes:
    Slayer Magic: Raging Lightning Dragon -The caster would can activate this two ways both requiring them to be taught basic or inherit it Lightning Slayer Magic. The first more likely way is they summon their kido into a lightning like bolt to strike them. This can be done by focusing their Kido above their head forming what looks like fog above their head, then having a bolt strike them. The second way would be consume elemental lightning.

    The buff this has on them is an increase in muscle leading to a increase in general speed, strength, and Lightning Slayer magic. For tired posts they will find they have a double increase in these three sections. However, when this buff de-activates they will find themselves both extremely tired and extremely hungry. It would be hard to keep on fighting past this but through will power they could but at a extreme debuff for inexperienced users. Once they gain mastery over their Slayer magic and this ability they will find it to be less taxing on themselves, however the buffs stay the same.

    Incantation: “The first release of the Lightning Dragoneer!”

    This buff should only last for two post and not be combined with any other buffs such as his hollow mask. I'd rather not see power stacking for my justification in making this correction. (I.E. stacking buff after buff after buff)

    Iron Dragon- Hayden apart of his Slayer gene line has a close connections to dragons and particular the manifestation of his powers into raw power. With this Ability Hayden would be able to for a short duration (Four posts) to transform a limb to metal negating all pain or damage it received before and at that current point. However, when it wears off it will resume to whatever wounds he had before he activated the ability along with the pain that came with it. If whatever he is fighting is strong enough to damage the Reiatsu infused metal it will then show on Hayden. I.e. someone chops his arm off it won’t come back.

    I'd lower the duration to three post for this activation.

    Slayer Transform: True Aspect Death Dragon- Hayden Slayer Magic works by allowing him to take and adapt to whatever his body takes in and morphs his body with it. Such as his Iron dragon mode where he becomes iron with an increase in his strength, his body literally becoming a iron like substance. Due to the Death Matter now in his body his body has drastically adapted to it allowing him to transform into something akin to Wolf natural body in it’s properties. His body skin takes on a slightly shiny look as the Death Matter literally becomes his very cells for the time being allowing him to have his regeneration factors increase to a near godly level. His body could be incinerated and be able to reform himself with ease, his arm would instantly reattach itself, his speed increasing and his general strength. Scales appear in random patches on his body, when he is attacked in a area scales rapidly form their to protect the skin as a first layer of protection. If he was punched in the face for example, the death matter would naturally react forming before the fist connected taking the brunt of the damage then fall away. This form last for around three posts and four in extreme circumstances and has a six post cool down as this heavily wears out his stamina, reiatsu, and strength. Typically his last resort in a fight.

    I'd correct the wording in bold to something else other than "Godly Level". Please correct that. I would also limit this to a one time usage per thread if it's suppose to be a last ditch effort. I also wouldn't say he'd be able to reform himself with ease, as each shift should take energy out of him.

    Also, how much does his general strength and speed increase by?

    Enhanced Death Matter control:Hayden has finally after trial and error has achieved control and usage over a large portion of his death matter finally able to refine it in his own away and his own attacks without fear of exploding on accident. Like stated before Death Matter is the essence of death there for it has the capabilities to kill or convert ANYTHING to its self if exposed to it including all forms of matter.

    I would say it has the potential to corrode most matter it comes into contact with, but the way you worded it made it seem as if it was automatic. Therefore, I'll ask you correct that and make a way for your opponent to counter it or defend themselves against the death matter. And I've already seen the notes below it, but I want it there as well.

    Hayden's specialty with death matter is infecting other items with Death Matter to cause it to become molecularly unstable and crash the particles together to form high explosive bombs out of things while increasing the mass and output of the object. An example of this would be similar to the Large Hadron Particle collider, something that that has caused 7.2 trillion degree explosion using the same process Hayden does for his bomb. Although to reach this Hayden would have to send a particle flying at over 2.7 miles at super speeds and collide it with another particle traveling the same speed to cause that rendering it unlikely to be used in combat. Death matter for him can now be created and manipulated in any fashion be it making a coat out of it or a sword that cuts down to a molecular level due to its properties. Hell its even affected his Shikai and in the future his Bankai.

    Instead of being able to cause hydro level bombs at his peak like Wolf, Hayden has the potential to create nuclear or supernova levels of attacks when he reaches higher levels or if he is willing to expand so much energy he literally dissipates for an extended period of time as his body has to regathering the Death Matter to form from such an explosion. I like to stress the potential part of this as it is not something he will likely ever try to attempt due to the sheer destructive power but he does know it is certainly a possibility due to how easily he gather reishi due to his slayer and death matter natures. Absorbing and redirection is his specialty after all.

    I am fine with having nuclear-level explosions on the site if it is within a contained radius, but I'm not going to allow the supernova level of attacks for this. So, I will ask that you omit it. Even if it is potential, I'd just rather not see it.

    Supreme Regeneration: Hayden cells were always able to replenish themselves and fix his body quickly due to his Slayer Physiology, it was a dormant and passive ability but awakened fully when Wolf introduced death matter into his system, but it didn’t just awake it.. it evolved it. The death matter mixed with his own slayer physiology makes his body incredibly hard to stay destroyed a trait he inherited from Wolf’s death matter, his body literally reforming and remaking the cells needed if he was to lose a limb or become injured. Broken bones heal at super natural speeds allowing him to keep fighting as his body literally will pop bones into place, regrow a lost limb through converting the Death Matter, and replacing cancerous or infected cells. This gives him immunity to all types of diseases due to the death matter converting any type of foreign substance into death matter to interact with his body. As for now as long as there is something to fix his body will fix it. Chances are the more his body accepts and bonds with the matter his regeneration will increase.

    How fast can he reform a broken bone or limb or organ? And I wouldn't say he has an immunity, but a strong resistance against diseases and viruses due to the nature of his powers. So edit that.

    Remarkable Immune System - Hayden immune system is flawless due to the death matter now coursing through his body, any type of foreign substance is converted to Death Matter just like that off Wolf. This works in conjunction with his regeneration factors.

    Same thing with immunity, don't state that it is flawless. Everything has a flaw. Either omit this or state it is extremely resistant as I stated in the edit above this one.

    Death Matter Bomb-Hayden can with his Death Matter form an unstable cluster of Death matter around him, be it in small or large quantity depending on how much Death Matter his body was pumping out. Unlike the other Death matter users such as Wolf, Tora, and Melissa his domain of control is more raw power then rotting , due to his slayer nature. When the Slayer Magic and Death Matter met they fused making a new hybrid form of Death Matter that is highly unstable and has more raw power than the others. This forces Hayden body to actively and Passively constant suppress his Death Matter usage due to the fact if he let it all go or became loose in his control every moment or touch he did could become a high yield explosion. However, when he makes these clusters they are meant to be unstable clusters he can activate to cause anywhere from a TNT sized explosion to Hydrogen Bomb level explosions given enough unstableness and he is the proper tier (0-3/2 for the Hyrdobomb level.).

    What is the radius for this explosion? We do allow for destruction such as that to take place with these energy burst on the site, but I need to know the area of effect.

    Body Supremacy-After so much time of having to control his body, having to delve deep into his inner being Hayden has gained the ability to control every aspect of his body. This ranges from being able to stop bleeding in one area to determining the exact amount of effort his muscles put forth. This ability was unlocked after gaining his shikai an offshoot of 100% usage. While in his shikai he can’t control his body supremacy.

    His brain has gained the knowledge of how to understand and temporarily alter his body by focusing on what he wishes to do. There isn't much more to it than that, telling his body to do something through thought process. It would be like moving a finger, it's a collection of items working together with his brain telling it what he wants to do. Some examples of this would be stopping the blood flow to a area but a draw back of this would be that area is not getting blood along with that being impractical, but if he had a wound on his arm that was bleeding profusely he could force the skin to keep it's self tense to try to close the wound till it can heal normally something stitches would normally do. This ability simply gives his mastery over his body, controlling it with ease. Another usage would be willing his body to forcibly use all his muscles or to barely use any percentage of this, the natural drawbacks to this is it would be easy to injury his body along with tiring him mentally which can make him lose control of the ability and even break his focus in combat. Typically for any ability after eight posts begins to tire him mentally and after ten posts he'd lose control of the altercation all together.

    I would say that this ability would become harder to use and control as he took more damage and drained more of his energy throughout the course of the battle. So please add that in as well. @ the damage/energy bits.


    Eight Gates Releases: The eight gates where central points of energy within a slayer body that allowed them to harness their energy into the physical world and their binding to the world both spiritual and physical. Their was a order to which the gates were unlocked in order for their power to be harnessed but it appeared with each unlock it seemed to put more strain on the body and by the final 8th gate the sages could only hold it for five minutes without dying but suffering torn muscles and broken bones with energy reserves damn near gone and anything after brought death- the sages in their final battle holded it for a little over ten minutes causing their deaths but that was pushing the limits. Hayden learned to use the eight gates during his two month leave period while staying in the temple of his ancestors; taking a proficiency that can be attributed to how well his father was with them allowing that to rub off on Hayden. When a form is unlocked no matter the tier it can only be maintained for ten posts, this does not apply to the 8th gate./

    Please convert every mention of MINUTES to POSTS.

    Furthermore, I'm going to ask that you remove a lot of the mentions of elements from it. Instead, I want you to just focus on physical strength as it doesn't make sense he'd have all the powers of Captain Planet. If you cannot do that, then I will ask you omit and remove this.

    I'm not even going to get into the lack of explanation for his buffs and the height of them until that is fixed. As you need to remove that 100 fold stuff and give more solid explanations and details as to how and why these buffs work.

    Hakuda Technique Dragon Separation- User sticks their fingers into the target mid section, using their energy or raw strength they pull them in two different directions to rip the target in two.


    You are going to need five full sentences for this. Also, do not word it as if he WILL rip them in half. Word it to where he has the potential to rip them in half. That's just ridiculous.

    I'll deal with another round of reviews when these are fixed.


  • Tier: n/a
