Echidna Project [Perfected]: Shining, Golden, Goddess. The general reaction to seeing the spiritually powered Echidna Project for the first time. It stands tall, it's muscles are well honed, and it's skin is a gold that glimmers in the sun. This dense dermal layer manages to refute penetration by all spectrums of vision, appearing as just a solid mass regardless of how a person tries to see through it. But that was an unforseen side-effect. The actuality of the project is more magnificent than one could believe.
Retaining and dramatically enhancing the abilities of the dormant Echidna Project that has been around until now, it also possesses a very strong barrier, made by reactive enzymes in the skin, which harden to varying degrees in response to impact. The harder the impact, the stronger the skin becomes. There is a limit, but it goes a good way to providing support and protection.
Finally fed with the spiritual energy it was designed to run off, Echidna Project's might finally shines in the world, but the body does not come with a manual. So while it gives the passive abilities in droves, it does not tell Ulv how to use the more active of it's abilities, nor lend a hand to her being able to control what she has already. That comes later, if at all.
Two Suns: An unexpected action of her soul's revival, Ulv's Dantian was pulled from it's resting place and slammed into her Soul as it hung high above her Inner World - something that confused Ulv anyway, because she was sure that her Inner World was her soul, but semantics - and made a Taijitu. The Dantian now feeds the soul, and the soul now feeds the Dantian. The two, as one create a potent force of power, and allows for considerably faster cultivation, and an entirely new energy signature that is not entirely Vizard Reiatsu.
Hands of a Hollow: Instrumental in the revival, and unwavering in determination, Hvit was irreplaceable, and has not come away from this with nothing - even if we ignore the return of Hvit's friend - in this endevour. After the explosion, the lingering essence of Hvit from when Niflhiem demanded she release it all, was spread out and saturated into the Inner World. Such an action created an incredibly intimate bond between Hollow and Shinigami. There is almost no separation line, which allows for interesting tricks to play out that are unavailable to most Vizards, and enhance the power of Hvit's Mask a great deal. It still doesn't provide the iconic Mask Protection however, which is a headscratcher.
Storm Regalia: The Right to Rule The Wind Road, this Regalia takes the appearance of a soft blue dress. The materials are naught but The Wind, cloaking the one who rules their Road and granting a considerable boost to all Wind Road techniques - including Slip Stream, which is the initial step on the Wind Road - and enhancing the speed, power, and Regal Might of all the techniques. It was gifted after Ulv's revival to show the Wind's devotion to her.
The Regalia is worn by the Queen of the Wind Road, and tells all who look upon her that she is the true ruler of The Wind. But this attention can come at a slight cost. The intense jealousy of The Wind prevents her from releasing her Zanpaktou, or donning her Hollow mask, and if she does either, The Regalia ruptures dramatically and can not be donned again for the entire thread.
The Storm Regalia grants access to make techniques of the Wind Road, but like most things, has no instruction booklet, so Ulv must figure these out herself.
[separate to the Revival Arc, but I thought I'd put it here since it ties in to Silken Bindings]
Earth Grasping Step: Ulv's Slip-Stream, created at the behest of The Wind when she crippled herself getting Niflhiem to the City of Lights. It is her refined, perfected movement ability, that allows her to take off and travel at incredible speeds, propelled by The Wind to heights never before seen by Ulv, and allowing her to go where she pleases with a prompt nature. It refines the flaws of The Wind Road, and allows her to carry anyone with her, and not have a limited use as before.
The Wind's Kiss: Ulv is intermingled with The Wind down to a spiritual level, as it whispered in her ear, and flit about her body while she was growing, and was presence when she finally released the maelstrom. Wherever she is, her hair is gently played with as if in a light breeze, and her feet give off a soft flow of air about them. Having The Wind assimiliated allows Ulv to briefly spin up a gale inside her, reducing her effective weight to nothing, as well as accessing her techniques based around The Wind even in places without any air at all.
Silken Bindings: The Wind is the source of Ulv's tremendous speed, but is ultimately an External thing, not of Ulv's make but serving her of it's own will. As such, hey know that Ulv can not yet handle the full potency of her own power, and it will not
allow her to harm herself from her reckless stupidity again. That, is the deal.
As such, she is mostly limited to 50% of her power at any time by The Wind. At a push, she can demand an additional 5% because she is the Queen after all. But any more than that will cause her to be suddenly cut off completely from The Wind. The limit will raise as she becomes more adept at controlling herself and being aware of her limits, but that will come with time, and effort.
Crossing Golden Bridges: Connecting all twelve Islands are bridges of Gold. Each bridge is made from Ulv's Shen, and gives off a small degree of power by existing. This can then be gathered by crossing them, making something akin to a constant, albeit low-grade cultivation undergoing in her soul. These bridges change colour as her Dantian grows in Realm, turning black with Black Gold, and then a glorious prismatic in Yu-Shan.
Wolf Reborn: With the explosion, came thought, came memory, came instinct. Ulv was designed to fight, and had a considerable degree of combat prowess inbuilt. But it was a pale imitation, a mewling child pawing at her parent's leg in comparison to the inheritance that she was gifted from Mirja. This filled her with no physical strength, but intensely intimate understanding of the best way to fight, and the best way to use one's body to the maximal effect. Like having the world's most extensive encyclopedia in her head, or an incredibly potent teacher with infinite patience for failure. She does not understand it all right off the bat, but she does have it there to go through at her leisure and learn from. One thing she does understand almost right away, is the memory of moving. Almost as if it was built into her bones, these memories grant her impeccable Kinetic Sense, eliminating the need to think about moving. Her body's movements are thoughts akin to the natural nature of breathing, or blinking. » Why:https://www.platinumhearts.net/t18761-lets-claw-the-furniturehttps://www.platinumhearts.net/t18860-the-joker-is-wildhttps://www.platinumhearts.net/t18778-the-tides-and-the-sky-ulvhttps://www.platinumhearts.net/t18677-go-wild-angry-one-burn-the-world-to-ashhttps://www.platinumhearts.net/t18959-booze-and-beauties-shunsui-ulvhttps://www.platinumhearts.net/t18963-therapy-session-momo-ulv#122058 https://www.platinumhearts.net/t19092-the-starting-linehttps://www.platinumhearts.net/t18239-the-ties-that-bond-us-inami-mirja
