You don't get far in life the way Mischa's lived without being capable of tackling different situations and changing the way you see things. It's necessary for growth and success, and though the man can be stubborn in a sense, pursuing a goal requires knowing how to switch things up. A static cadence is boring, and staying in your comfort zone does nothing to expand it.
This also works in terms of Mischa's work ethic and not just daily living. As an aspiring composer, the Judavialdi has a creative side, one fit for thinking of things on the spot as well as devising intricate scenarios and plans, though he's mainly put forth that talent towards developing and arranging music in the past. To pair off with his creativity is the ability to put things into practice, and thanks to his persevering mindset and frozen rationality, most goals are definitely within reach.» Spontaneous:
Speaking of his frozen rationality, this does appropriately denote his logician mindset, but don't mistake that for him being a totally logically guided individual. The fire of music is fueled by spontaneity, and understanding the framework and theory of the system before him, furthermore applying himself to it, is very important, but once you've understood how something works, that's where you take it and make it your own.
To do that requires unique flavouring, and that flavour is provided by a sense of spontaneity, something which has seeped into his personality and shared its moments of action in his life. To an extent, you could even call Mischa an adrenaline junkie, and he's very often explored a number of troubling circumstances and high-pressure situations at the risk of his life, using it as a method of inspiration, and just to experience something thrilling, as the feeling is wonderful for his mind.» Persevering:
Mischa doesn't stop at failure; his career was met with great success, but at no point was it easily done. Failure has come in spades, and moments of opportunity have flitted by; fortunately, Mischa's mindset allows him to prevail in even dire circumstances, and he easily moves forward, taking in the things he's committed to and used them as a moment of learning, not a moment of failure.
Sometimes, this can be mistaken for optimism, and the energy he provides a circumstance can easily fuel this misunderstanding. In truth, Mischa assents to a bitingly cold rationale for his thought processes, but knowing that he prefers a practical approach, his self-confidence allows the man to believe that the initial failure shouldn't and wouldn't discourage him. The sweet and verbose finale is achieved through a bitter climb, and the more bitter the climb, the sweeter the summit.» Efficient:
Mischa really knows how to put his thoughts in order, and tackling a large project is best done by appropriately addressing parts of the bigger picture step by step. Typically, Mischa is systematic, and even in normal living he sets his priorities in order. Sometimes, he can aspire to do something absolutely ridiculous if not entirely out of his league--but he usually doesn't choose to do so unless he at least believes that he can do it at some point, and can come up with a method to feasibly achieve that.
Combining that with his energy, determination, and rationality, Mischa's efficiency proves a deadly combo for others and even himself. His tendency to order his priorities also brings into the equation his own well-being and others, and the man finds risks as a necessary and justifiable means to his ends. A worthy goal requires some sacrifices if its really that great, and if it is
great? Then the weight of the sacrifices can be wavered. Priorities, people.»Level-Headed:
All this alludes to Mischa being a fairly level-headed person--and that's exactly right. Even in heated situations, Mischa keeps his cool. Not just because of self-confidence, but because he truly wants to live with no regrets. Though he's mostly gotten over it since then, the Virtuoso became a hollow to begin with as he was ridden with regrets of all sorts. Not this time--not in this second chance, more or less.
As a result, in subjects outside of his control and moments not within his machinations, sometimes things can't be helped, and Mischa tries not to let those moments bother him. Which is fine--you can do what you can, and you can't do what you can't. Sweating the small stuff is a good way to stress yourself out, and no-one appreciates stress or a stressful person. Fortunately, this makes Mischa a great person in crises, and fear of circumstance isn't much of an element in him, or fear in general for that matter.
In the mid 22nd century, the value of music had its ups and downs. The events of past tragedy, introduction of multiple races in common living on Earth and the mutual interdimensional migration of innumerable souls fueled various industries. Around this time, the music industry wasn't too different from the usual patterns; various genres are developed, older genres make its return to popularity with modernised arrangements that appeal to the masses. Around this time, classical music was at an all time high, and the various aspiring musicians and producers sought to make a name in the genre.
Mischa wasn't very different from these people, and raised by a strict family which carried the tradition of being involved in the classical community since several eras back, he was given the usual strict regimen which hope to bring out prodigies. With his childhood and various positive and negative feedbacks fueled into him, it proved to really attach the boy to his violin, one of the noblest and valued instruments of the classical era.
Several years had gone by as Mischa made a name for himself, his adolescence filled with concert participation and junior competitions to have the talented youth stick out more, enabling their cultivation to become better than their predecessors. As one of the many children like this, it wasn't any sort of surprise that the young Judavialdi made music his career, higher education and all the resources at hand, his personal time, energy, and lifestyle revolving around practice and performance. Thankfully, he was content with this sort of life. Many of the friends he made were kindred spirits, all dedicated to their craft and vying to master it.
For Mischa, his aspirations specifically lied in not just making a name for himself as a world renown artist, to which within the classical community specifically, he had achieved to some extent as a talented young performer. Beyond that, he aimed to make a name for himself in the annals of history for the composition of his music, like the many artists of the Renaissance Era from centuries past, whose names would forever be remembered: Menuhin, Mozart, Bach, and the legendary Niccolo Paginini. His desire was to offer something that etched his names in the memory of his peers, such that children would practice his compositions in the same way he practiced the work of his heroes as a child.
Coming around his 30s, the Judavialdi was definitely close to his goal, and although he never released anything, by no means was the man giving up on his dream. Instead, he was meticulous, wanting to cement himself as a performer of legendary proportion, of which he was very close. Already, at the least in his forte as a violinist--as by his 30s Mischa was a multi-instrumentalist, specifically with other strings, though his capacity to understand and put into practice the common fundamentals of different instruments succeeded in him being well-rounded in other branches--Mischa was globally renown. His imitation of great composers and creative interpretation of the lesser known variants served to put the less famous composers on relatively equal standings with greater heroes thanks to his rearrangements, exposing them to the community with revived interest in their original writers. It became a major point of his mutual talent and infamy.
Unfortunately, Mischa would never fulfill his dreams. Few years into his 30s, World War Three was underway, and one of the first casualties in Europe was the Musical Prodigy and Virtuoso, MIscha Judavialdi. His works would never be released to the public, his aspirations to be known not simply for his talent at playing the instruments but arranging compositions for them would never be realised. In fact, Mischa would hardly be recognised after the events of World War Three.
In later years subsequent to the European conflicts, much artwork was recovered to reinstate culture and society post-war, and several relics of the past were restored, but many more lost forevermore. Even the classical legends like Beethoven and Tchaikovsky's works were irrecoverable, and while many of their most famous symphonies and works remained, something like Mischa Judavialdi's works were never touched again. At the very least, none of them would be recovered with his name, and much of his famous rearrangements were simply labeled with an unknown origin.
Mischa, at the time of his death and due to the location of his death, was never taken to Soul Society. With regret for having never taken the chance to just perform his own work or publicise them, with regret that he feared doing so without establishing such fame that could settle his cowardice, with regret that he never got the chance to stand at the peak alongside his heroes, Mischa continued to roam across the Earth as a plus for the remaining duration of the war. By some miracle, he wasn't swept into the rages of the battlefields that would leave no conscious existence at rest.
Though it was well hidden, in his human life Mischa suffered from reoccurring and persistent bouts of depression. Music was his passion, but also his obsession, and it consumed him in every way, shape, and form. He had friends, but never indulged in many group activities beyond performances. Mischa never engaged in romance, school was just a necessary part in life and did very little for his adult life, and even his family was second to progressing his career.
And even excluding the obsessiveness, Mischa's hard work was often a result of comparing himself with legends of the past. It birthed within him an inferiority complex, and therefore a desire to prove himself, driving him to wildly pursue his craft at the cost of family, friends, and physical and mental health. His depression in collaboration with performance anxieties that plagued him every time his feet took him onto a stage, powering through through sheer determination and willpower, his originally platinum blonde hair turned fully white, a hereditary trait that occurred when Mischa was under excessive stress.
For these several years that he roamed, the regret was creeping up on him as another point of consumption. It was overwhelming, that the self-scrutinising calls of his depression were right. That, when he saw the recovery of the world after the war proved that none of the work he put into his life amounted to anything in longevity, that his legacy would not remain for even more than a year in his passing--it was crippling for his psyche. This depression reached its peak as a plus, later transforming into a great rage.
This anger transformed him, and the negative emotions welling in Mischa's heart turned his soul from a mere plus to a hollow. It wasn't enough that he couldn't just be better than what he was, or that to himself he was amongst the best--he always wanted to prove it, and never receiving the chance, feeling as though he was never appropriately recognised for his brief life's work--it served to destroy his ego, and replaced it with nothing but a mindless, hostile and ravenously hungry husk. That drive to move forward progressively was consuming him, and in turn pushed him to consume others. The result was indiscriminate destruction and gluttony, regardless of who it was. Creatures not even in the traditional soul cycle, of races outside his natural evolution, for several years he just ate and ate, and before long his puny hollow self evolved to become a gillian.
For these years which toiled at his sanity, as there was only actions of mindlessness without an identifiable persona, somewhere within the confines of Mischa's mind, this was an ample amount of time to simply "think". His mind was irrevocably altered at this point, but it was just enough for the Judavialdi to reconsider his state. Just enough that in some degree, he could regain his ego, though not his full sanity. And, with some disgust at how unbecoming it was for this gillian body of his, amongst the amalgamated mess of countless other souls crying out their emotional pain and regrets, it was embarrassing for someone as great as himself to succumb like the rest of these muck.
His ego restored and innate mental strength once more established, Mischa wrested control over the gillian body, becoming a unique creature. And although he instinctively understood that the next step in his evolution would be to continue his rampage and eat the other gillians around him, the form he held was less than admirable. A massive hulking creature without a hint of elegance and dexterity, by all means Mischa felt that he had to change this. He turned to another gillian, and using the protruding nose of its mask, he slipped the tip into the side of his own mask and jerked, ripping off the article from his "face". In this moment, Mischa became an arrancar.
Soul's Modulation» Hierro/Regeneration:
Mischa has neither a passive hierro or regeneration. In fact, in lieu of a native ability in either, Mischa has gotten to the core of their functions and how they come about to be--that being the delegation of spiritual energy, acquiring great strength in one or the other by focusing energy in developing one of the abilities. That being said, the Virtuoso admittedly has a lowered level of strength in both of them compared to peers of his level (tier), however, at a slightly lower level of expertise in both fields, Mischa can functionally use both.
Specifically, he can access both Hierro and Regeneration, but say he has an advanced in hierro/regeneration. Considering a lack of focus in either of them, any other arrancar with an advanced in either hierro or regen will undoubtedly have greater strength in their field of focus over him. That said, he still maintains a higher level of both than someone with an adept in any of the two fields. How does he go about doing this?
Mischa has taken the energy passively used to typically provide either of the two abilities, and segmented the energy into a sort of reiryoku pocket. From this individual pool of energy, he can take it and decidedly regenerate his body, or instead form a hierro around his body. Though there's a bit of a time-lag as a result of having to focus and consciously provide energy to form that iron skin around himself or repair his body, to most peers and those below him the time it takes is pretty indistinguishable.
That said, it also means since he has neither passive, none of them will be capable of automatically activating, so say someone mentally inhibits him, or catches Mischa off guard. He won't be able to form the hierro before being hit for the latter, and when mentally inhibited, it'll be difficult to summon that energy and regenerate himself from there, providing an additional balancing element to being able to access both abilities which arrancar typically just aren't capable of.
On top of having a reaction time dependency, since the energy is taken from a predetermined pool, though in theory Mischa can direct his energy to refill that pool, typically in one thread Mischa only has access to that set amount, and is therefore limited in the amount of times he can regenerate or create a temporary hierro. Fortunately, this also means that he can repair his hierro if its broken.
It should be noted that in one thread he can only use one or the other, though it can be decided at the point which he activates one or the other, so it's not set in stone and decided immediately upon entering a thread. The only exception to this is when he enters a heightened state--namely resurreccion--in which he can switch the regen to hierro or vice versa for the remaining duration of the thread, though it can only be once per form change--and reversal of the switch can't be done even if he exits or re-enters his forms. So, if Mischa hypothetically gained Segund Etapa, he could perform another switch per thread.» Pesquisa:
The Virtuoso also has a unique form of pesquisa, drawing from his zanpakuto's overarching theme of vibrations. Specifically, his reiryoku does the traditional pulsation that detects other energy signatures, but thanks to his attunement to vibrations, he draws his reiryoku back in, or feels the movement of his pulse as a way to discern physical constructs as well. As a result, Mischa's Pesquisa emulates as a sort of sonar as well, though specifically he doesn't feel the physical constructs so much as the vibrations in the area. This alternatively functions as a way to understand the placement of physical constructs since the immediate return of his spiritual energy, or the absence thereof designates location and general parametres of the objects.
His sense of vibrations furthermore allows him to retain an understanding of physical constructs and even their movements, as his impression of their placement and sizing keeps him constantly aware of them until around three posts, at which point he needs to reactive the pulse which extends to around 300 metres. As a result, Mischa is even aware of minute changes and alterations in his surroundings by the vibrations inherently caused by them, even in the atmosphere.
Unfortunately, this doesn't work in vacuums since it's dependent on vibrations on the surroundings and atmosphere, though if he focuses on specific objects--or people, he can retain an understanding of their movements and constantly keep track of them, since the ability still fundamentally works off his spiritual energy and not solely the atmosphere or air. Of course, it's also inhibited by large spiritual signatures that abate his energy from essentially scoping out the surroundings.
Another weakness is abilities, movements, or techniques that reduce and minimise or even entirely eliminates vibrations or alterations to the surroundings, or even people with immense control over their body and abilities, as in a way being aware of minute changes to an extent makes Mischa capable of predicting an action. Since, moving your foot to the left generally projects an overall movement to the left, but those who are capable of changing their actions at a moments notice makes things difficult.
Fortunately, this is dependent on Mischa's attunment to vibrations once the pulse has been sent out, so even if he's cut off from his six senses--including spiritual sensing, once the pulse has been activated, for at least the three posts in which this ability remains effective, Mischa will still be aware of his surroundings. This also works on himself, so even if the Virtuoso is incapable of feeling his own actions, so long as he can perceive the vibrations his body is causing with its movements, the man can seem to function normally for the most part, though it would take a degree of focus.» Sonido:
The Virtuoso's Sonido typically isn't largely different from the standard, unlike the previous two racial traits which very much have his own unique flavouring attached to them. The only noticeable addition to his Sonido is being capable of controlling the vibrations caused by it, and in turn managing the usually loud Sonido to be quieter by constricting the waves that reverberate from the movement, effectively silencing this movement entirely. Alternatively, he can enhance the noise caused by it, and potentially turn his sonido into a violent variant, each burst of speed sending shockwaves out that rippled through the surroundings.
Naturally, the efficacy, range, and degree of control is dependent on the overall skill level of his Sonido, but at least amongst the racial skills, Pesquisa is Mischa's most trained skill. In fact, you could even say he is more skilled in Sonido than Pesquisa, as the added utility of his pesquisa is what makes it unique and incredibly useful; in regards to sheer potency, Mischa's Sonido is definitely his primary trait. That said, even at lower levels the prowess of its supplementary effects proves powerful. At a mere beginners, the shockwaves induced by Sonido is enough to shatter the glass throughout an entire building and offering some degree of dizziness to those within it if they were below his sonido's level in focus.
The vibrations are enough to shake up the air around his opponent's and allies indiscriminately, throwing off their equilibrium which thereon induces some dizziness. At even higher levels, like Elite, the shockwaves are enough to absolutely demolish that building as he rips through it, the vibrations causing the structure to collapse. Naturally, this includes people as well, if their overall physical constitution is comparable to a concrete building or lesser.» Cero:
Cero's are generally just massive blasts of energy to absolutely decimate anything in its path, and to that purpose it is very effective; Mischa figured that the point could be reached with considerably less energy invested into the attack. Similar to how a fluorescent light bulb takes more electricity to reach the same degree of luminescence as an incandescent light bulb, Mischa reconfigured the structure of his Ceros to effectively achieve as much of a destructive cero as his peers whilst expending barely a tenth of his energy for it, something he can uniquely achieve due to his inclination and ability to manipulate vibrations and mechanisms related.
The area of the blast of a traditional cero is maintained, so in shape and size it's entirely the same. The difference is that the energy is jetted out in similar fashion, but the inside of the cero is left hollow. So, instead of one giant blast, it's more like a massive tube of destructive energy. Inside the cero, shots of spiritual energy bounce around the outer walls of the hollowed out cero, and from the base of the cero is a pulsation of reiryoku, and with the bouncing against the walls, it resonates with opposing bouncing waves and gains momentum and magnitude, eventually building up to consume anything in its path. Thus, whilst expending a mere fraction of the energy it normally takes to fire a cero, the same degree of destructiveness is achieved as a peer's full powered cero.
Of course this sort of efficiency is applicable in larger ceros with far greater expenditure, so to the extent of using up as much energy as a normal cero to overcharge the blast with overwhelming amounts of energy, the destructiveness achievable is essentially on par with a peer's gran rey (although Mischa isn't quite to the point of being able to use gran rey cero, largely due to Mischa never pursuing the technique of producing a gran rey cero, as he's never felt it necessary when the arrancar could focus on alternative areas instead). In exchange, at all levels of performance, this type of cero requires more focus considering its unique and specific structure that takes time to construct. That said, Mischa also can't drum up this sort of cero as quickly as a normal blast, nor can he spam it in the same manner.
This modification to the cero can only be applied when a Focus skill is at the same level as the cero/bala skill. What this means is if Mischa wants to employ a cero that has the general parametres and potency of a cero at the level of advanced, he must at least have a corresponding advanced in Focus. Otherwise, say he only had adept focus, Mischa could only employ a Cero at the Adept level (assuming he at least has an adept in Cero.» Bala:
Similar to his cero, Mischa has developed a unique structure to his bala that gives it more versatility than just a less powerful, more spammable, and much quicker cero, to the extent that its purpose has transformed to be almost entirely utility based, rather than wreak lethal havoc like its more powerful counterpart. Instead, Mischa's bala structure is netted, forming a similar hollow innard, but instead of pulsating with spiritual energy that generates momentum and magnitude through the "piping" of the outer walls, these bala are more of a projectile rather than a laser. Additionally, the inside is fitted with branches and pillars extending from one wall of the inside to the next, forming a sort of netted structure similar to avian-esque bones.
The result is an easily fracturing bala, on impact dealing far lesser damage than even a normal bala; the intent is usually to spread the reach of Mischa's spiritual energy much more effectively and discreetly, allowing implementation of his vibrational abilities and pesquisa at a further range, as they both work with his reiryoku as a conduit, and it must therefore travel from his body to the location he needs to effect and control. That said, it also uses substantially less energy on average due to its resource-efficient structure, but it similarly takes more focus since it is more complex.
Mind's Etude» Martial Skill:
Mischa has characteristically embraced strength through efficiency, and while he definitely desires to have overwhelming power at its base, utilising it in the best way possible just enhances the degree of strength he portrays. To that end, he is extremely particular with his movements, and never wastes a moment regarding investing in martial techniques. The blurring, consuming years of Hueco Mundo and travel across the endless dunes has offered opportunity to hone himself, his movements, and even learn from those around him. Though he hasn't formally learned from anyone or any style, Mischa has taken in what he's seen to develop a personalised method of combat that exemplifies potency and efficiency to his best efforts.Variare Arma:
A martial style formulated around inherent points of vulnerability to the physical body. Though a person's physical body varies greatly in structure, especially amongst hollows and similar creatures, given an opportunity for analysis, Mischa can potentially find weak points in a person's body, such as joints, areas where bone is must vulnerable, or even points which are injured on the person from prior combat or accident. Variare Arma involves varying joint-based techniques and strikes which attack those areas of vulnerability, primarily to disable the target as quickly as possible; this style in itself doesn't have as much lethal power, though can easily set an opponent up for a fatal blow. Due to its nature of specific and targeted but adaptive movements, Variare Arma takes a certain level of Focus to effectively utilise.
- Shatter-Point: Usually involving detachment or disablement of a specific limb, body part, or generally breaking the area of contact, Shatter-Point starts with discovering parts of an opponent's body that is at a naturally weaker durability than other parts of the body, or points which after fracture or damage can easily spread and effect other parts of the body. On a humanoid, the best example is either the pelvic bone or solar-plexus, which other parts of the body are dependent on. Being able to cause damage to the pelvic bone can easily serve to disable the entire lower body due to its dependence on the pelvis; alternatively, smashing in the solar-plexus makes torso organs far more vulnerable as the entire rib cage from the front won't be as stable of a defence. The actual type of attacks are typically unassisted by Mischa's zanpakuto abilities, and instead primarily through special maneuvers that increase the efficacy of his blows. This includes palm-strikes to have a greater surface area for the blow to effect a larger target area all at once. This also includes using Stradivarius and its unique constitution to contort around the opponent, or even the opponent themselves.
- Counter-Point: A reactionary technique which works of the same principles as Shatter-Point, but the basis of Shatter-Point is offensive in nature, whilst Counter-Point relies on waiting for the opponent to be the aggressor. Maintaining the theory of targeting natural physical vulnerabilities, Counter-Point uses the momentum or openings caused by an offensive movement to flow into his own attack. While it is based around countering, Counter-Point is most definitely not a defensive technique, as its specifically meant to accomplish the same thing as Shatter-Point, with the defining difference being method of approaching the scenario.
- Fortress-Point: Uneventfully, the idea behind Fortress-Point is a defensive posture which specifically leaves the most durable parts of Mischa's body at the forefront and most easily accessible point. Though it's a fancy way of saying that the Virtuoso puts up his guard, the stances themselves are strategically formed to still have his own natural humanoid vulnerabilities be visible and accessible, but in a way where reaching it also puts someone in range or position for Counter-Point to take effect, whilst simultaneously accomplishing its goal as a defensive posture in the case that Counter-Point isn't a feasible technique to utilise in the heat of the moment. Though it's more of a baiting technique, it still offers Mischa's most durable points at the most available point of contact, which also allows those areas to intercept incoming attacks and nevertheless effectively defend his weaknesses.
Oscillare Colpo is a large contrast from Variare Arma in that the focus of its application is through vibrational enhancement, whereas Variare is based more around unique maneuvering and strategic and targeted approaches and reactions. Instead, Oscillare is entirely more forceful, from both a defensive and offensive viewpoint. There are still techniques revolving around precision, but in general its a much more impactful style since it isn't reliant on pure technique of movement considering the inclusion of Stradivarius's power, such as sending shockwaves through a person's body, disengaging their weapon, or even using his zanpakuto as a conduit to reinforce blows.
- Dismantle: Whether through a weapon, his zanpakuto, or physical body, Mischa's blows oscillate in a wave which pulses through the body at two different frequencies, disorienting the person and their connection and awareness of their body, as minute movements are induced in two different manners. Depending on the opponent's level of focus, it can easily inhibit control over their own body if the attack connects, and if blocked by a weapon, shield, or armament in general that's connected to the opponent, it offers a supplementary effect of vibrating the construct at a different frequency dependent on material than the user's body. Usually, this serves to loosen their hold of the weapon, and for weaker opponents even disarm them entirely as they can't maintain grip over their equipment.
- Inseminate: Maintaining contact with the opponent can give Mischa time to infect the opponent with his spiritual energy, and without proper defense he can seep his reiryoku into any available orifice, keeping bits of his energy on the person's body to effect them directly form afar. This is a significantly more difficult task to pull off considering the energy's intent is to stay unrecognised, so a trained opponent can take notice to it. Due to the incognito intent, the amount of energy used is also rather small, and easily defended from by exuding their energy aura or reiatsu out at full power. Additionally, unless there's a penetrative power to his attack, its difficult to inseminate his energy into an opponent with something of a hierro or equivalent defensive technique, considering the spiritual energy will ward off the insemination.
- Internalise: An attack fortified with vibrations which are designed to forego outer defenses, Internalise as the name might suggest has the force of a strike use vibrations as a conduit to go through a person's armour, heirro, skin, defenses in general and oscillate their internal organs. The product is usually significant damage, destabilisation, and at higher levels or against weaker opponents, even rupturing organs or muscle fibers to completely disable them for the rest of the thread. The level of defense naturally influences the effectiveness of Internalise, but for the most part its completely effective against his peers that don't focus entirely on defensive techniques and abilities.
- Displace: An offensive technique designed to weaken the targeted area, providing waves of vibrations that offset parts of the target or person or generally make them more susceptible to damage in the area. For example, striking the opponent's arm, the vibrational force carrying over to continue oscillating their arm and enhance the effects of following attacks in the same area, progressively breaking down the area and any defenses it might hold, being particularly effective against solid constructs, such as bones. The waves of vibrations can vary depending on the target, typically testing their compression strength, and maintaining the pressure of the initial blow by maintaining the oscillating force in the area. This in turn also sustains the pain received from the blow.
- Absorption: Working of the principle of shock absorption, the go-to defensive technique for Oscillare Colpo is to essentially decrease the force and severity of an attack by breaking down the force and strength through consistent vibrations around the targeted area. Though it's not 100% effective depending on the strength of the attack being defended from, it typically does dramatically tone down the extent of the damage, being especially useful against penetrative forces similar to kevlar, in that the penetrative force is spread out as opposed to concentrated. The inertia still carries over, however, so for a large or powerful enough force, it can still physically affect and move Mischa.
