From mellow and idle to serious and rising panic in the span of seconds, it didn't take much of his own empathic abilities in order to tell that Ulv was growing more and more deranged. Thus, as armor began to manifest on Ulv's person, Henrex immediately drew his Zanpakuto, lightning crackling along its edge as he kept his stance wide open, footing in place so that he would be able to counterattack at any moment.
His expression remained calm and his body unmoving, even as the same brilliant amber light bloomed from her armor and she lunged toward him. His feet dug into the ground, bracing himself to move or counter before she promptly fell onto her face, the display of power vanishing as quickly as it had come. Releasing his sword as it automatically returned to the sheath, Henrex took a step forward, offering his hand to help her up, retracting it as she stood herself.
Concern immediately took hold when he saw the obvious changes to her body, her voice -- as if she had her looks had sudden downgraded. Henrex took a step closer to her, his voice layered with a much deeper level of concern and seriousness than it had ever been before."Ulv...are you ok?"
And while he waited for her to answer, he took this time to process what she had just said, about the other effect of her Resolve Flame -- what seemed to be quite literally punched the hands of negativity in order to clear the mind. Taking a brief look at his hands and closing his eyes, Henrex took a deep breath as his eyes slid open.
There were plenty of thoughts that floated about his head that tied with the negative emotions that held a firm grip on his heart and mind. Fear of losing, fear of failing to protect the people he cared about -- linked to the memories of the deaths of his family and cutting ties with Hattori. Memories of his own weakness and helplessness in his time of living and in his spiritual life, leading him to have the drive to constantly improve himself for the sake of himself as well as others.
Releasing a shaky breath, Henrex slowly lowered to the ground, crossing his legs and setting his hands in his lap, tapping into Cerebral Yin-Yang, a power that Liu Xinshen granted him during their meeting and discussion at the Vastime Social Gala. Through this, it would allow Henrex to easily access a meditative state in order to balance out these emotions and the memories that linked with them.
And so, he began to "sort through" them, thinking long, hard, and carefully on what his decision would be for each one, as it was very important for him to be able to think clearly through this process in order to ensure that the memories that no longer needed to be controlling him were removed, but also to allow him to remember his purpose and drive and fuel it even more, along with keeping the memories that he needed -- as they were a part of his growth and allowed him to improve into the man that he was today.
