Welcome to Bleach Platinum Hearts RP! This is a Bleach Role Playing Forum set in the year 2416, over 400 years away from the Original Bleach's timeline. It has elements of both canon and custom for a unique mixture of role playing never seen before on Bleach. To get started, please sign up and read our starter guide:
Things had gone so fast...and yet, thinking back, with a hideous slowness that was itself fascinating to behold in the opposite manner. This must have been how the captain of the Titanic had felt, in those moments immediately leading up to the collision with the iceberg. It was such a cosmically infeasible state of affairs, that these two monoliths would collide in such a way, and by the time that it had been noticed, there was such a horrible inertia to it. It was oddly fitting, for the moment that was about to come, Yaksha felt. There would almost certainly be those who hoped to see the event turned back, but once it had happened, it would keep on happening. In smaller ways, across the world, the message would be out there.
Yaksha Dokuja shed his gigai, walking towards the balcony of his penthouse suite, and flexing his back muscles faintly. A pair of long, leathery wings, bringing to mind a great bat or some frilled lizard, stretched out behind him, easily large enough to dwarf his own armspan, stretched outwards. They seemed to phase into and out of the stone around them, giving the impression that Yaksha were some experty crafted gargoyle, or statue. And like a gargoyle, he exhibited a patience and stillness that made one wonder if he was even alive, as he began to marshal every fiber of his mental capacity, and to collate every asset he had at his disposal here.
He was about to make a sales pitch for his life, in a very literal sense. And if this pitch went well, it only meant a dozen more very unpleasant conversations in the upcoming weeks. Things were about to get incredibly busy in a very small desert, a chunk of the human world that emulated the hollow world in such a tiny and meaningless manner. He inhaled, exhaled, and slowly began to retch; as he did, his throat stretching and elongating as if he were trying to swallow an egg, faint white flames could be peeked behind his clenched teeth, as he spat out a wisp, no larger than his head, that flickered and bobbled back and forth in a manner that was oddly mechanical in its simplicity and repetitiveness. Yaksha rose one hand, half an inch, and as he did a black-and-purple portal appeared just in the palm of his clawed appendage. The wisp gently floated through it, with no more pomp or circumstance than one walking back through the door to their own hand. And just like that, it began.
A second, a third, a fifth...the wisps poured forth from Yaksha's mouth with a steady, persistent pace. Each one seemed just as tortuously hard to create, though they came quicker and quicker with time, like a bulimic who was growing more talented at inducing vomiting without warning. They all hovered for a second or two, before approaching the portal...and then Yaksha's other hand unfurled, causing a second portal to appear. And then his tails, both of them, gently rent the air behind them, creating a third and a fourth. Soon, the city of lights was filled with a flickering display of flames that would've put a swarm of fireflies to shame. Yaksha's eyes had a distant, almost glazed look to them, as if he were listening to a million distant conversations, trying to keep track of each one. Finally, after nearly an hour of creating these constructs, and sending them to scatter across every dimension he could find, and to spread their net as wide as possible, there was a moment of frisson within Yaksha. It was a faint, subconscious rippling of every cell in his body, telling him that the web had been created, and connected. Across entire dimensions, Yaksha had spread himself as thin as any being could feasibly hope to, simply to send a message.
He inhaled one last time, scrawling red text forming across every scale on his body, glimmering with a queer light as he spoke, in a voice that was dulcet, remarkably soft...and could be heard, felt, sensed, nearly everywhere. It was something beyond sound, more like a constant dull pulse in the veins of every entity sensitive to hollows and their energies. It felt like being in a room filled with pumping subwoofers...yet without a single sound coming from them. Flesh and muscle and bone rippled and pulsed in tune with some hideous vibration that went beyond the audible range...and then, after perhaps five minutes of this faint, steady throbbing, words could finally be made out.
"Come. Come to me. Las Vegas. Come and see. I will be waiting. Forever, if that's what it takes. Come. Let us be bound together by the red string of fate. Come. Come to me."
This, repeated in languages innumerable, tongues both old and dead and hideously new. Repeated, with the steady pacing of an intercom, or someone reading off of a script. It came between pulses of that bone-wrenching noise, that sound that had spread itself as far around as a myriad multitudinous being could manage. A sound that would almost certainly be maintained, until it had started the avalanche that would keep going for quite some time. It wasn't loud, nor was it demanding. It was simply gently insistent, coaxing and cajoling with a sense that this would go on forever, if need be. Like a man asking stone and snow to move at his request, kindly and patiently, until the universe simply heard his wish, and made it be.
And, of course, this was no mere snowflake, or pebble Yaksha was speaking to. These were proud, powerful beings. He didn't expect it would be long for the first individuals to come looking.

Boria Lee did not come to Las Vegas, and judging by the fact that one of Yaksha's wisps was reciting its message by her ear in Hebrew, he knew exactly how much of a smartass he was being sending one to her. "You know," she says from another, nearby balcony, "that 'red string of fate' bit does not translate into Hebrew at all." She leans back across the railing, sprawled like a lounging predator. "And it's a soulmate tradition, too. Destined lovers and all that. I swear, if your grand plan is a Hollow Orgy you deserve whatever the fuck happens to you and I will be far away, laughing at everyone else's collective misfortune." She jokes with him, blatantly, because she knows what his plan is, or the broad strokes of it, and she approves. The system now is broken, to the point where it can scarcely be a system. Hollows can join Shadow Fall, break their masks and seek "redemption" from Shinigami, or live lives of isolation and constant hunting in the wild parts of Hueco Mundo.
To be abrupt, fuck all of that. Arrancar were not some glorious stage of evolutionary might. They were broken science experiments of a deranged Shinigami, mutilated by ripping off part of their masks and shoving it into a sword. What Hollow needed a weapon? They themselves were such, a sword was a tool that could fail you. Shadow Fall was Demon-run and put Demons first. They were better than that. Ancient civilization told tales of awe and fear when it spoke of Hollows. They were the monster in the dark, that which was once man and now hunted man like man hunted game. Yaksha's offer of mutual sponsorship had been strong, but his plan had been what won Boria's loyalty, if you could call her sharp scrutiny and priority for self preservation as loyalty anyway. He did not bully or browbeat her, like Louisenbarn had done. He was not kind, but he was intelligent and had use for her.
For the sponsorship of a powerful Hollow, a Vasto Lorde even, Boria was willing to be used in the way he needed. He made clear his expectations and helped her grow in return. Her hunger, her companion for longer than she'd had her name, was more controlled than ever, and the clarity of thought she enjoyed was more intoxicating than liquor.
Her thoughts turned to the most famous force of Hollows and Arrancar. It was obvious why Las Noches had failed the Hollows. It was never meant for them. Honeyed words and promises of power from a traitor Shinigami, and any who were dumb enough to follow him had suffered for it.
Sure, they were strong. The Espada were downright monstrous even among monsters. All of Hueco Mundo had felt it when Ulquiorra had used the hitherto-unknown Ressurreccion: Segunda Etapa.
All of Hueco Mundo had felt Ichigo Kurosaki snuff him out, too.
Every single Espada suffered. Most died. All of that could be laid squarely at the feet of Sousuke Aizen. A leader who was not Hollow and thus did not value Hollows. That was the reason Tartarus had not allied itself with Monsuta. What kind of fool thought they wanted to die and re-enter the cycle? They were the cycle! They were the Apex predators of the world, the only species to surpass Man.
She voiced her concerns after jumping gracefully to Yaksha's side. "We've started the clock now. Shadow Fall and Gotei United won't ignore Tartarus forever. Not after this. You're strong, but they're monsters. We need to make ourselves important. We need to be ten moves in before anyone else sits down to play our game. You want us to be the Alphas, but we need our pack and we need it now."

The whir of the bi-plane could be heard through the sky as it continued over American soil, Lex quite alert as the sun had set a while back and the night sky was beginning to make itself apparent around them. His entire haul included himself, a tall and beautiful woman named Minerva that was currently sitting on his lap in the cockpit seat, an Adjucha named Liacaru that had grown to be that of an anthro-like form of a fox, and a small vixen named Nina that was currently sitting on the Adjucha's lap. Despite the particular area that they were currently flying over, setting sun cascaded what the aviator believed to be a heavenly glow across the desert landscape below, making it quite calming and beautiful to look at for the man. However, Lex had a fair share of seeing all of this before and remembered that Liacaru had literally came from a world where there was nothing but desert for him to traverse, so the sightseeing would have to wait as he made his way through the West Coast. 'Nina, you awake?' the man called out telepathically to the small vixen in the seat behind him. 'Hm? Mmm... I'm...' came the soft groggy voice of the vixen in his mind in return. '... awake... What did you need?' she finished, having stretched and yawned during her telepathic response to the pilot before she stood upright on Liacaru's lap, peeking over the seat just a tad to see them flying over the current Nevada Desert. 'Be on alert from this point on, I don't know if...' he began, when his eyes suddenly widened in fear before he jerked the plane as hard as he could to bank to the right and flipping on a switch on the console in front of him. Unfortunately, the plane jerking the way it did caused the vixen to suddenly protrude her claws from her paws before getting ready to swipe at the closest thing to her, attempting to keep herself in the plane on her own volition since she had nothing to hold her down whatsoever.
With the closest thing being Liacaru, the dark gray vixen hesitated to sink her claws into him out of fear of seriously hurting the Adjucha, having the ability to see and affect all spiritual beings. That hesitation made her eyes widen in pure horror as she was flung out of the left side of the plane, the small creature barreling through the sky and plummeting to the desert floor below. "LEX!!!" she screamed at the top of her lungs, beginning to panic as she immediately attempted to use one of her wind jutsus to stay alive. Meanwhile, Lex's first instinct was to hold onto Minerva as tight as he could since there were no seatbelts to hold her in place, the switch that he had flipped earlier began to morph several parts of the plane to be more sleek and open up the area for his jet boosters to protrude from the craft. Most importantly, it was sealing the open area of the plane with a type of blast armor in a perfect arch design. This looked to be a hard casing of metal that couldn't be breached, so it seemed highly unlikely that one could see through such a material. However, that's not what was being displayed on the inside, the pure darkness of the cockpit and backseat suddenly flooded with light again as the shielding seemed to be transparent, or rather, seemed to display what was around them as if one was looking at an arched monitor screen. Lex unbuckled his seatbelt and placed his palm against the center of his console, leaving a strange symbol illuminating on the screen that was illuminated as well. "Minerva, I'm putting this in autopilot, I'll be right back! I have to go get Nina!" he instructed before staring up at the screen above him. As if by reaction, the scenery suddenly zoomed in on the vixen twirling violently through the sky as she still was falling at top speed towards the ground below, the man not wasting a second to place the same palm he had put against the console against his chest before he suddenly vanished from the cockpit.
Lex would suddenly appear a few meters above the vixen, now freefalling as well while he rummaged through his aviator jacket to grab for his scouter device, practically jamming it over his left ear and aligning the lens to be over his left eye. He then curled up to place both of his hands on both sides of his steel-toe boots before they were suddenly replaced with another pair of shoes, ones that had sharp, metal wings designed on the sides of them. He straightened his body out right away towards the vixen before he suddenly blasted off towards her, the sounds of jets at the bottom of his shoes screaming through the air as he saw the vixen calmly falling towards the ground now. She seemed to have regained her composure for sure, the vixen glancing over in Lex's direction to see him coming in her direction before she held out a paw for him to take. He didn't waste any time at grabbing her the moment he reached her position, the man tugging her towards his body before gently placing her under her jacket pressed against his chest, the gray fluff of fur being small enough for him to zip up the jacket and keep her head poking out to keep her snug and tight against him. 'Lex, what are those-' the vixen's voice rang out in his mind, but he already cut her off. 'Those have to be Hollows! But they're far larger than the ones we encountered in Karakura City! We have to postpone our trip to New York and see where they're headed, there are literally hundreds of these things pouring out from portals and we can't just let them roam around freely if they might cause trouble like the ones we destroyed earlier.' he answered, boosting off to be parallel with the plane. The loud rumblings and random noises from such a large number of Hollows began to fill the air now, as if they were being centralized to one point by something unseen by the man and his companion.
That's when it hit him, wondering if perhaps whatever it was that was calling these Hollows had perhaps affected Liacaru as well. 'Crap...' he grumbled in his mind as he flew towards the right side of the plane, watching it weave and bob around in the area to avoid any of the extremely large Hollows that were in the way even at such a height. He glanced over at it before lifting up his left arm, checking to see the availability of his wristband device before noticing that it was now reading 'fully operational' again. He couldn't help but hurriedly press several buttons in a very fast sequence before pressing a button on the side of his scouter device next, hearing synchronized beeping on both devices before he was able to remotely control the plane along with the autopilot function being on. He would type a message on his wristband device, hearing Nina casually chant 'left' or 'right' periodically to have him casually shift in that direction to avoid Hollow after Hollow, finally finishing his message. 'CHANGE OF PLANS. THERE SEEMS TO BE A HOLLOW GATHERING HEADING IN THE DIRECTION OF LAS VEGAS. WE WILL HAVE TO INVESTIGATE! PLEASE BE CAREFUL, WHATEVER THIS IS MAY HAVE AFFECTED LIACARU.' it read, showing up on the console of the plane where the dashboard was. He just hoped that Minerva could read the message and try contacting him through telepathy like she did before. His telepathy only worked with his summons due to a contract, but it was Minerva's power that allowed them to telepathically speak to each other as a team. As he changed the plane's course towards Las Vegas to see what was even going on, he just hoped that nothing had happened to the two of them within the plane, feeling that the worst case scenario was that whatever this was had affected Liacaru to perhaps attack Minerva.
Lex's Current Abilities
Name: Grey Magic: Seal Teleportation Description: This spell allows Lex to transport anything in existence, as long as he is aware of what it is and the location of whatever is being teleported through portals, which are enhanced greatly through a specific seal. The seal must be within five inches from Lex's body to activate in this manner and all things being teleported must have a weight under 5 tons (10,000 pounds) size does not matter. The seals can still be used if out of the five inch range, used more as a beacon to pinpoint exactly where to cast his next teleport without too much effort in comparison to having to guess where he should teleport items or people.
Lex's Current Equipment
Name: Platinum Fox Gloves Description: Light grey and royal blue leather gloves that have a magical symbol set on the palms of the gloves. Function: These gloves allow Lex to amplify grey magic, a style of magic that could teleport small items to and from his location. With the amplification however, it allows him to teleport medium, large, and even extremely large items as well. The extremely large items take up a lot of his stamina however, so he tries to keep it small if possible. Origins: After creating grey magic with the Niosha Stone, Lex found it difficult to conjure up the spell during battle, despite its usefulness. Upon more research on the specific codes of magic that the grey magic followed, he found out that if a seal was placed on any item, he could teleport other objects from that very item that had the seal on it. Because the item with the seal had to be touched every time for the activation, it was safe to say that an article of clothing was the safest bet to put the seal, causing the creation of both the Platinum Fox Gloves and the Platinum Fox Boots.
Name: X Scouter Description: A chrome piece of metal that is like an ear muff and links a thin metal wire around one ear and towards the eye, where a thin piece of faint blue lens rests over. Function: This scouter has multiple purposes, from reading data, to projecting data, to displaying videos and images, to even scanning objects. This scouter device can do numerous things, and is still a work in progress as far as Lex is concerned. It can currently scan objects due to laser projection, heat sensors, and sound waves. This can recognize what the object is made out of and take digital images of that object to study for later use.
It can also copy and save data, like text files and other images and videos, as well as project these multiple things on the lens of the scouter. It can play and record things that are happening in real time. The scouter holds 500 terabytes worth of memory and has a database that needs to be filled manually (personally logging information into it like city maps, object descriptions, facial pictures, etc.) Any external database can be connected to the scouter, it just needs to be set up through a Wi-Fi connection before being able to be accessed.
If integrated with Duplex's Perfect Monitor, it can also display a person's actions based off of their muscle movement and accurate computer simulation on the lens. Lastly it has the X Vision scanners on it, allowing Lex to use the different modes of visions with the lens.
Name: Xepherus Description: These look to be silver and royal blue metal footwear that have several different blades protruding from the side of it that are shaped as angel wings. The front of it is pointed as a sharp blade as well. The soles have two holes as well that allows Lex to use fuel to propel himself into the air and fly around in quick bursts of speed. Function: The Xepherus is a means for Lex to be able to travel around the battlefield through jet propulsion.
Name: L.A.S.T. Description: Lex's Advanced System Tech. A silver and blue wristband device that models after the Time Bounty Hunter's APOD (Advanced Program Omitting Device) in custom interface and design. Function: Unlike the APOD however, Lex's wristband is suited more towards his solo needs and doesn't have any time altering effects. It serves as his GPS, information displayer (visual and audio alike) a remote controller for all of his advanced equipment, and a scanner. This helps Lex keep track of a lot of information on the go when his X Scouter is unavailable. It can sync up with the X Scouter, as well as a lot of his devices and equipment that are stationary or out on the field.
Nina's Current Abilities
Name: Prower Synch Description: Once a petal of the Prailius Rose is used during the summon of any Prower, they are able to telepathically speak to their owner(s) at any given time from any location until they are called back.
Name: Black Magic: Wind - Barrier Funnel Description: This spell creates a wind barrier force to appear around the solo user that is falling from the sky. This barrier creates a thin funnel around the person that allows the desired caster to slow down or speed up in falling momentum while also inching them in whatever specific location they wish to land in without having to worry about a hard landing. This spell spreads out at 5 meters wide around the desired person and was designed in creation as an expert infiltration technique of a solo individual. This spell must be performed at least 20 meters above the ground or it will not work.

Minerva was currently taking a light nap in Lex’s lap. There was really nothing else to do on such a long journey. Her eyes slowly opened. Before she could do anything else, Lex had maneuvered hard, flinging Nina out of the plane. Since Minerva could fly she didn’t worry about being flung out of the airplane, but appreciated that Lex held onto her tightly. With calm and switch resolve, Lex transformed the plane into a jet, the cockpit itself had quite the change.
“Wait!” she exclaimed as he teleported away.
She then turned her head forward and now she understood why he had to make such a drastic change of course. So many hollow were appearing. But why? No, this was too much of a coincidence. Was this a trap setup for them? Did it have something to do with Liacaru? She glanced behind and saw that he was still there. Nothing special, his energy seemed to be normal also. She saw the message Lex had sent to the dashboard. She quickly telepathically communicated with Lex,
“What plan do you have in mind? This seems to be more than a coincidence that we have encounter these monsters, unless the whole planet has been overrun. Unless you want to send us on a suicide mission, I advise retreat.” She glanced again back at Liacaru. “Liacaru seems to be fine.” she stated calmly.
She didn’t need to ask if he saved Nina. She knew where they were through spiritual energy alone and they were together now, Lex flying parallel with the plane. She went back to observing the Hollows, mentally taking notes of how many appeared and how quickly.
Name: Telepathy Description: Can use to talk to others up to three thousand miles away. Communication is not affected by walls of any substance.

Eagerly, Liacaru leaned against the side of the plane. Sitting up far more than proper safety would allow, the gray and blue adjucha gazed upon the city below. Having lived in a vast desert for so many years, such a sight was beyond a breath of fresh air. Big bushy ears perked as they rustled through the wind, wind that he welcomed against his fur as if this journey would be his last. Smiling like a kid in a chocolate factory, his big blue eyes opened wide with glee. Tail shifting back and forth, the fox-like creatures gaze suddenly averted from the view bellow. Slowly he moved to look from side to side, almost as if he where expecting to see something, or perhaps someone, there. Posture perked, head tilted, the hollow began to speak. "Hey?" Liacaru inquired in a stoic tone. "Did you guys hea-"
In an instant, his thoughts slipped from his mind just as his companion slipped from his lap. A blur shifted across his face before it's shape cave way to Nina's small form flailing through the air. "Nina!" Liacaru yelled as he stood up within his seat. With a snap, the belt that was meant to keep him held in place gave way from the force of his outstretched arm. Clinging to the front seat, he contemplated his thoughts. 'Should I jump?' The adjucha froze as his hands clasped tightly into the seat before him, a seat that he suddenly noticed was missing yet another member of the crew. Panicked, he looked to the left and right before finally locking his eyes on the amazing spectacle that took place before him. "H-he caught her...?" Liacaru spoke with a heavy breath as the would be fox plopped down into his seat, gaze looking up to the clouds in the sky in an attempt to calm his nerves.
'How could I of been so careless? What the fuck Lia?!' He thought to himself with a mixture of both guilt and annoyance. "Nng..." Bushy ears alert once more, his thoughts instantly shifted towards the voice that seemingly sounded as clear as day. Strange voices, foxes flying, how could things get any more insane then they already where? Distraught at his massive slip up, he brought a paw to cover his face, a face that he could only imagine would bare disgrace after nearly killing his friend. Looking down below, ears lowered from his saddened state, the adjucha's eyes opened wide once more. No longer was it from the foreign or exotic sights. This time, it was a look of pure horror from the amount of personified death that lurked and marched bellow. "Guys...I think, there is something weird going on. Do you think, that they can hear it too?"
The process was rapid beyond belief, more successful than Yaksha could ever have imagined. Already he could spot Gillians walking across the sands towards the city, and already he could hear the background sussurrus of people speaking about the weather or their great fortune dying down. Now, there was only one topic on the tongues of each person, as they looked out on the desert, to see the wretched dead approaching: Each and every one of them wanted to know if this was the end, world war four starting right in their front yard. Yaksha could feel the air of ease fading rapidly, as each person looked upon their neighbors as enemies, instead of comrades. Yaksha tutted ever so softly, placing one hand outwards, towards Boria.
"I didn't want to offend you by assuming you wouldn't want to hear sweet nothings whispered in your ear, Boria. Just because you got the VIP pre-release experience, that's no excuse to deny you my sultry voice once again. Alas...it seems there is a matter that needs my personal attention. I wouldn't dare ask you to go about soothing the masses of humans. Not least of all because you're already on the verge of salivating at the sight of all these hollows. Instead...I'd like you to go and greet a few of our promising compatriots. I can sense one approaching at speeds that lead me to believe he's flying in a plane. And any hollow that chooses to cram itself in such a tiny metal monstrosity is well deserving of a...personal touch, shall we say? I trust you to handle this situation as you deem fit."
Before so much as a word of objection could be lobbied, Yaksha disappeared in a horrendous crackling of static, landing within a grouping of humans. Immediately the worried whispers and stares ended, causing a two or three second period of crystallized silence, before each and every human began to scream and scatter, starting a stampede of epic proportions...which ended almost as quickly as it began, as Yaksha rose his hand, and spoke in a voice of absolute command, something that reached straight into the hindbrain and wrenched at the reptilian ancestor in all mankind. It was something that froze them mid-step, causing goosebumps to raise instantly.
His voice, suddenly taking on odd harmonics that were impossible to define, words that seemed to come from within their own heads, skipping their ears entirely, seemed to leave all of them staring around drunkenly, waiting to hear more, a few even digging at their ears as if to confirm they had just heard what they had. Yaksha never moved from the spot where he had initially appeared, his hand still raised in a faint, almost polite gesture.
"Bear witness. You have my sworn promise of safe passage."

Boria smirked, leaning back against the railing as Yaksha talked. "I'm convinced you're just trying to get me into all these theatrics so I'll call you 'Master' or something else cliche." She turned to where the Vasto Lorde indicated, able to barely make out a speck of a biplane on the horizon. "Hm. Personal touch indeed. I haven't seen anyone in a biplane since World War Two." She chuckled at the memories of that simpler time. "Ah, hunting those German pilots was a game. You know, if things had been a little different I might have been a bird and not a wolf. I certainly like being in the air enough, but who can say why we are what we are?" She shakes her head. "You're rubbing off on me. Making me was philosophical. Damn."
Refocusing on the plane, Boria began running along the air, glass left arm spread behind her like a shattered parody of an angel's wings. Abruptly, as she approached, she reversed her momentum with a hard stomp a shard of glass from her arm, landing gracefully on the center of the biplane's top wing and looking at the occupants, her only hand held up in a gesture of nonviolent intent. "Hello there!" She shouted over the wind and the engines. "I come in peace! I am die Kristallwolf, also called Boria Lee and Cerberus of Tartarus." She looks directly at the hollow in the plane, only watching the others out of the corner of her eye. "What's someone like you doing in a metal bird like this one? And with a pair of humans, no less? How'd you pull that off when every one I've met has either reacted with 'die, monster' or 'not the face'?"

Lex took in Minerva's warning as he realized that she had a point, something he had completely missed as a possibility. If such a large group of Hollows were gathering here, who was to say the entire planet wasn't at risk of being overrun at that very second. Right after her tactful insight of retreating, the spiritual human heard Liacaru through the listening device of his scanner once he began to speak, picking up on his words that he was concerned that something was wrong. The Adjucha's words confirmed his suspicions that this was not to be taken lightly and that there was an outside force most likely causing the Hollows to do 'something'. This all happened so fast and Lex had no way of knowing what to expect with a gathering such as this. What if it wasn't even a gathering? What if it was a sacrifice of sorts? The information of what Liacaru said earlier that Hollows went around eating each other in the land in which he came from in order to become stronger seared into his mind again, making him grit his teeth. 'Of course... all it would take would be one strong Hollow that can affect all other Hollows with some type of mind control or something, and they could just eat the masses and gain a ridiculous amount of strength.' he thought.
"Lex! There's something approaching at twelve o'clock and it's heading straight for the plane! It's a Hollow!" came Nina's concerned voice from under his chin, the vixen still snug within the confines of his zipped up jacket. Almost right away from the vixen saying that, a rapid chirping noise emitted from his scouter as the lens lit up in the same pattern before putting a cross-hair on the fast approaching figure. The speed in which she was approaching made the man grit his teeth as he quickly realized that he was not prepared for a fight in such conditions, not to be able to take on the massive amount of Hollows underneath, the approaching figure and defend the two in the plane. 'Don't hold back Nina! Use-' he began to say telepathically, when he heard Nina's voice cut into his mind. 'Wait! I'm sure Minerva can get them out of your plane if this figure does portray itself as a threat, seeing as we're stuck over a massive wave of Hollows as it is but none of them has directly attacked us, we probably shouldn't do anything brash. Only attack if necessary, we could be dealing with a negotiator of sorts and we should buy as much time as we can to get us to a more preferable area, in case we ARE in for a fight.' the vixen warned. The man simply hummed and nodded as he gave it a quick thought and watched as the Hollow landed on the center of his top wing a few seconds later.
For it to be a Hollow, she looked oddly 'too' human, aside from the ever-shifting spiritual matter that made up her left arm of course. That wasn't Lex's concern however, figuring that Hollows didn't have a set look in the first place from the differences he had seen between Liacaru and the ones they had come across in Karakura City. It was the fact that she seemed to have the ability to look straight through the metal shielding of the cockpit and into his plane that made him worry. 'Can she seriously see through my plane?' he pondered, grimacing as he began to concentrate to use one of his spells for a possible countermeasure. He knew better than anyone to judge anything simply by what they were or what they looked like, after all, he had been a Celotrian during one of his lives, something he was sure that humans would look down on funnily enough. However, caution didn't mean weakness, at least not in this case and Lex knew quite well how much it paid to at least have a backup plan. She spoke her name and gave her intentions on what she wanted to know from Liacaru, directly, Liacaru. 'She can see in the plane. That's going to be a problem for sure.' Lex assessed as he made a mental note about checking on how Hollows were able to do such things. He would have to fortify his crafts and other equipment once he got the chance and be far more knowledgeable on these spiritual creatures.

Minerva just wanted to have some fun in a city’s night life, but now that was going to be have to put on hold. A part of her wanted to just leave. What did she care if a city was destroyed, this wasn’t her dimension to be concerned with anyway. At the same time, she didn’t think that would have been the best option as abandoning Lex wouldn’t do. He had been trusting her so far. And besides she can’t go to the infamous city if it’s destroyed.
She didn’t know what Liacaru’s question was about, “Can you clarify, what do you hear?” Minerva’s focus on Liacaru and the mass of hollows was interrupted by a fast moving entity heading straight for them, the plane specifically. As it was on autopilot, she could not take control of the plane herself. “Incoming!” she said to both Liacaru out loud and Lex telepathically simultaneously.
The unknown being could now be seen clearly as it landed on the airplane for them to see. Despite the form of a young girl, a very cute one by the way, it was clearly not a normal human, but something taking the form of one given its left arm made of a peculiar spiritual energy signature. Minerva looked her over as the visitor explained it’s non hostile intention, which Minerva was not immediately convinced of. She noticed that the girl wasn’t looking at her as one would expect given that she was in the pilot seat, but rather straight at Liacaru, inquiring on his reason he was traveling with humans. Apparently it wasn’t a common occurrence and Liacaru was immediately recognized for what he was. “Was the girl some type of hunter, or a fellow hollow?” she asked herself.
While the girl had not attacked, Minerva stoically sat there, calculating the many ways she would have to neutralize the threat if it came to that. She also wondered if the girl was here to attack Liacaru and planned on having to protect him. But should she?
Anyway if the girl wants to be welcoming, Minerva reciprocated. She opened the cockpit, showing herself to her “Hello there, My name is Minerva. Is he someone you know, your friend?” she asked, trying to be loud enough over the wind and engines.

Standing in the plane, Liacaru held out an outstretched arm as he spread his palms while bracing to stop the thin layer of shielding from closing shut. Gripping along the metal sheet, with only minimal effort the fox stopped it in it's tracks. Giving the situation, such a weak defense would serve to cause more harm then good. The last thing he needed was something blocking his field of view. Ears perked, the fox stood upright as he felt something, or someone approaching. Bracing himself, his bushy ears twitched from the impact of a foreign passenger landing atop of the moving plane. "Hnn..." The adjucha scowled assuming whatever was to come next to be the worst.
Channeling power from his previously fallen prey, a thick film of spiritual energy rose outwards from beneath the spirit's fur. Like a raging flame, the blue essence clung tightly along his body, serving as what appeared to be a skin-tight shield. The normally composed, and arguably cute appearance of the fox, shifted to that of a feral rage that furled his growling muzzle and ruffled brow. Visually Liacaru's body began to shift and grow. Fangs lengthened, limbs thickened, as he began to fortify his body in expectation of the seemingly inevitable battle that was to come. It wasn't until the uninvited gust spoke that he suddenly felt his tension ease. Fear and anger gave way to confusion as his big blue eyes focused on the almost human hallow before him.
Abruptly, his body stopped mid transformation so that he may speak. "O-oh..." The fox visually let himself relax after hearing the others introduction. Seemingly whoever this was had enough decency to introduce themselves, so they couldn't be too bad. As social as he was, Liacaru wasn't one for interacting with others having spent most of his years in Hueco Mundo, and that very thing resulted in him being just a tad bit too eager to make friends. "My name is Liacaru, and the others here are my companions. I'm not too familiar with these lands, or the general lifestyle of humans, so I asked them to guide me as a sort of chauffeur. We where about to go sightseeing, and it was going to be quite wonderful, though I suspect we won't quite be able to do that now without passing up such a lovely feast below."
Enhancement film: Personal shield: A small blue barrier that encases the body in a skin tight film. While on the user it attempts to greatly reduce damage taken, as well as highly enhance one's physical size and form. This technique pools from the amount of energy that Liacaru has absorbed. While active, all of Lia's body gains blade like properties allowing him to slice through flesh and clash with blades using his bare form. If someone is on a higher level then Liacaru, and he manages to absorb the spiritual energy, or an attack from said person, Enhancement film then allows him to fight on there level for a temporary amount of time. During this enhanced state, Liacaru's physical appearance and mass change to better manage the increase in power.
If Liacaru would suffer a fatal blow, the film can be sacrificed instead instantly removing any boosts gained.
