SPEARHEAD PROJECT | THE VARIOUS SOULS○ Name:
Spearhead Project.○ Alias':
Doll Program. Force Multiplier.○ Age:
Chronologically: ----; Physically: Varies.○ Gender:
Varies.○ Affiliation and Purpose:
The Yuudeshi Family. They were resurrected as a program by Chifuyu by cooperating with the Gotei following her introduction into the Vanguard under Azure Iramasha. As a result the Gotei have a strong hand in the ability to call upon these resources, more so than Lux Orior and other allied groups.○ Appearance:
Dependent. Most Spearhead Souls appear as tiny candy able to be swallowed. However there are some cases of spearhead souls that are bound to their specific bodies.
Very varied. One common and core trait is their underlying psychological trait that can be even called to be hardcoded into them. All Spearhead Souls have unquestionable loyalty to the faction that they are assigned to, any attempt to corrupt their minds to another side by force would only result in self-destruction.
While the Spearhead Project started over four-hundred years ago it was shut down over ethical concerns and forgotten about. In her research a younger, just promoted to Azure's pupil in the Vanguard, decided to look into the project and access it's viability given the rate in which demons and hollows were producing, particularly with the events after Moon Massacre and how they attacked the Vanguard Moon Base Chifuyu was only spurred on further to resurrect the project with the help of various Yuudeshi Resources. Obtaining access to the means and information of the Gotei's closed project from her uncle Kakine Yuudeshi.
Over the next few years Chifuyu would allocate resources in areas of the Imaginary District in Karakura, specifically the E-Zone. In this place she created various spearhead souls, over time leaving it to build up until they would be needed. She also had one faculty on in the islands of Hawaii however after Shadow Fall's attack in 2417 she decided to liquidate the facilities and move them to the E-Zone completely. Refining the process over the years Chifuyu would eventually have formed a powerful fighting force to call upon in the event of a large-scale battle situation like in Moon Massacre until finally becoming operable for World War 4.
Arsenal and Inventory
They can be armed with various technologies from various protagonist organisations.
Powers, Abilities and Attributes○ Artificial Soul:
Artificial Souls operate like artificial intelligence. They are high-functioning programs that lack any actual individuality and are all made off various templates to assume certain roles with the upmost efficiency. They can be made into various races, depending on the gigai/reigai (faux body) they are inserted into which can allow them to bolster ranks and forces of organisations while taking up very little resources since they require no food or drink, don't need breaks unless their energy runs out. They are essentially very effective troops to help bolster already existing sources which require minimal training and cost to produce unlike typical troops which need to be trained and and have many months to years of work and resources put into them. The artificial souls allow battle ready troops to be produced in weeks although more time tends to equal better strength and quality.Tiers:
Troops are made in batches of one-hundred and twenty, an entire company at a time. Below is the amount of tier they can expect for their incubation process.
○ Modified Soul:
- One Week: 5-tier.
- One Month: 4-tier.
- Two Months: 3-tier.
- Four Months: 2-tier.
- Eight Months: 1-tier.
A much more specialised version that was rebooted by Chifuyu following her investigation into the Gotei archives. Unable to understand why you'd cancel such an effective project the modified souls were once again revived. Unlike Artificial Souls though they were made to be much more specialised and unique, breaking them down into categories that tended to be created with specific powers in mind.
Examples of this is modified souls being created to mimic shinigami, even going as far as to have artificial zanpakuto at times. Other times it's simpler, just a soul with powers that are different to Artificial Souls who tend to have just enhanced bodies and made to be peak fighters or casters. For Mod Souls however they take a little longer to produce and usually in much smaller batches, groups can be made with similar powers however the most effective ones tend to be made solo. Alternately Mod Souls can be requested by people in authority as guards or companions. Tiers:
Troops are made in batches of twenty-five, an entire platoon at a time. Below is the amount of tier they can expect for their incubation process.
○ Replicate Soul:
- Three Week: 5-tier.
- Two Months: 4-tier.
- Four Months: 3-tier.
- Six Months: 2-tier.
- Nine Months: 1-tier.
The ultimate form of artificial soul, the peak of the Spearhead Project. It is the ability to take a copy of a person's soul and replicate it within a container. This merges the soul with the container which is made as exact copies of the original ones. As a result they allow for individuals to create copies over time that function as faux bodies that can operate on the part of the original. Mainly done for high-level members of organisations or specifically powerful ones. They take quite a long time to make though, all being custom made with no template and months at a time. The higher tier as well makes it ridiculously hard to replicate, as the higher it is the more trouble is. Often needing to be supplemented with other resources to keep up with this demand of high-energy like an external network.○ Kill Command:
Every single created Soul of the Spearhead Project, with very small exceptions are all given a kill command, embedded in their container their body will self-destruct after any attempts to meddle with their personality such as changing their loyalties or extraction of information. Of course this is a last resort and only activates when the Spearhead Soul cannot determine any course of action to get out of their situation.Note: While Modified Souls have a great deal of versatility which is one of their strengths their capabilities need to be roughly established when they enter a thread and cannot be too expansive. Usually only having three powersets at the very most and all relating to a single core thematic to their powers.
