The Madman of the Outlands
The order of his prison sentence came in a while ago or perhaps it seemed. Tatsuya had entered into the Maggots Nest, making a resolution within himself. He didn't speak upon entering to a single soul. Questions asked were given a simple nod or shake of the head. Sleep had become something of a forgotten thing also grooming. Tatsuya's visual appearance had become more ragged. He seemed not all together there some of the fellow inmates would say. As though he simply didn't see or hear anything around him. This seemed to be the status of things as though his eyes were empty. Deprived of inner light within them some shimmering example of existing. Tatsuya saw this as perhaps nothing but another delusion. Fights happened though he merely stayed out of them. Seemingly lost in his own world often times drifting off to another place. People had tried to talk to him and warm up to him. But in the end, he merely ignored and remained closed off. Tatsuya put a wall up around him and didn't want people in.
Reasons for this could be contemplated or considered as him snapping finally. But he didn't speak or really do anything. He would eat, drink, and do things like that. But socializing with others seemed just out of his nature. Tatsuya would in his free time throw a certain number of punches before stopping. He seemed to be studying Hakuda and trying to learn to be better. Though he didn't really consider himself much of an expert at these things. Time in the Maggots Nest was suitable to him he guessed. Tatsuya didn't know his voice or bother cleaning up to look presentable. He didn't groom his hair or shave anymore which let his hair grow out. Some thought him a wild man as his hair growth was often faster than most peoples. Facial hair grew in within record time forming an unkempt beard and face. His eyes held bags under them from not sleeping. Nights were spent training alone in silence as were days. These were times where he devoted himself entirely to two principals. Control of his hollow and Hakuda instead of any formal sword training.
He couldn't blame Amateratsu for her powers or even say anything about them. He could only say he didn't want to wield her at this moment. It was like being sucked into the darkness inside. Slowly vanishing further away as voices of people were almost murmurs of noises that just didn't seem important. People spoke but they simply were shades to torment him he imagined. That number remained truthful to him that the prosecutor pointed out. The number he'd killed and that was all he did. He would count them each day as a tribute during his training. But outside of that food was something taken in but not thought about. It was something almost colorless and meaningless. His senses of sight and sound were simply being regulated to blankness. Things he viewed as unimportant were filtered out and that was all their was. During his time to walk around an area prison people could, Tatsuya would often find himself sitting instead.
If he had a choice he would remain in his cell instead of with the general population. He wasn't isolated so he isolated himself on his own. Guards if any reports given would go to quiet and almost dead in his mannerisms. Tatsuya did work out but that was all there was to him. Purpose seemed to be devoid of anything more. This would be his life from now on and he accepted that. Perhaps in time, his eyes would stop working or something else. But he didn't plan to clean or do anything. This wasn't a protest or something perhaps self-pity and destruction of one's own self. But Tatsuya's Soul was broken like his heart for what he had done. This punishment was much worse than death in his eyes. So he could only worsen it himself by changing. Words and personality that he'd become known for were gone. Any traits people once saw of a bright or anything had died. The moment those people did so did Tatsuya's light and cheerful nature. This was what would remain and it would be unknown if anything would change.
Tatsuya had contemplated suicide many times. Considered gouging his own eyes out with his fingers and ripping his tongue out. Snapping his own neck or perhaps letting the prisoners here simply kill him. So many options that existed in that place. Tatsuya had no God, no Religion, no King, no Counter. He was now just a shell or a shadow of the forgotten days. This was his punishment and it wouldn't end after the Maggots Nest. This was eternal damnation he sentenced himself too. No matter the Gotei's choice he would have tortured himself. He had almost protested treatment for his injuries. Making them treat him in the most painful way imaginable. Completely awake connecting and binding organs without healing powers. He wanted pain as that was familiar and comforting alone. MAsochism wasn't the way to describe it. That was a comforting reality that sometimes brought him back. Any fights were simply him being beaten and doing nothing about it. He wasn't helpless this simply was a deserved outcome as he saw it.

In the morning, Ulv came into the Maggots Nest. Tatsuya was sent there yesterday by order of the court, and Ulv got permission to come down and punch him. And then probably also talk to him about his Hollow. She wasn't the best, but she was good and easily on hand. Plus, she wasn't going to cripple their war efforts with her absence because she wasn't part of their war effort, so it was good on many different fronts. And just to top it all off, she actually knew the guy so he would actually listen to her.
When she arrived, the physical appearance of him had seriously degraded. The hollow seemed to have a sense of humor, abusing it's control over him to make him look like he had been here weeks, or even months. Probably even made him think that as well. A few of the other prisoners glanced in her direction, but she struck an imposing figure before her Existential Death Stare ability, so nobody tried anything and she was left in peace.
"Tatsuya. I always knew you were an idiot, but I was ignorant of the scale until this point. So congratulations. You have surprised the great me" she gave a clap. A slow, and sarcastic clap.
