Ulv filled a glass and drunk that with greater ease than the bowl had given her. She was never one for alcoholic beverages, but this was really good stuff. And she could feel something, distinctively apart from her fractured soul, taking the energy within it and feeding itself. T'was a good feeling, but the alcohol was potent, so she needed to measure herself. Strong System though she may have, even it was able to be overwhelmed with too much, like Ava's candies. She needed to find the guy who produced them and beat his face in with her fists.
"Ahh, I have a slight advantage over you in the fact that I know people I have never met. I would be Ulv Auber. It is lovely to meet you, Captain Kyoraku" She raised her glass in toast to him, and then took a drink. phew, good stuff this was. She could see why Bronze and Silver was so easy to get hold of. And then he asked where she got the wonderful drink. Ulv's eyes lit up and with a deep breath, she began to regale Shunsui with the story of the origins of Tai Chi.
"Well, about...what are we now, 2418? About two thousand one hundred years ago, some really smart people learned that with a certain degree of movement could enlighten them to a source of energy flowing within them. There was a lot of experimentation with this energy, but eventually it was discovered by a great man called Aang Feng. He would then go on to create Tai Chi, the power-assisted martial arts. When more people got into this, he created an entire culture, a world within a world, called Wulin. Basically, The Land. And from there, people created a lot of new things to help assist them in cultivating the power within them to reach new heights.
One man, a brewer who had entered Wulin, felt like he wanted to get drunk. He got drunk a lot, having such access to alcohol as he did. But, to get drunk would be to lose time and effort that was needed to cultivate. The lower realms of Bronze were little more than highly skilled person in the level of assistance it gave. So he went about making something to cover both bases, an alcohol that would grant aid to a person's cultivation. And that, is the origin, of what is before you. Soul Rice Wine. Not, actually wine though. The energy imbued while brewing makes it a very smooth, and delectable flavour. But, depending on the power of the brewer in question, it can get even better. What we have here is sort of middle-of-the-road. Gold Rank. Above it is Black Gold, and then finally Yu-Shan, but aside from those last two being rather very expensive, it is also a risk"
Ulv took another drink and finished off her cup, giving a sated grin.
"See, for non-cultivators, the higher rank Wines can cause intense inebriation and nausea, possibly alcohol poisoning. Generally Silver is the limit for none-cultivators, but I took a risk, thinking that your Soul is a very powerful soul, so it would be able to handle Gold without the untowards effects. Don't go ham, and if you do feel a bit ill, then the risk did not pay off. Alternatively, you can always learn Tai Chi, Cultivate a Silver Rank dantian, and we can drink Yu-Shan together!" Ulv finished and let out a deep laugh, finishing by taking one of the snacks and eating it.
"So, what is your thing?
. Zaraki punches stuff, Henrex is sneaky-breeki, Unohana does the heal and also the terrify. Zeda is a huge nerd. But you...don't really fit any of them"
