[What is this Arrancar associated with? A certain character? A selection of characters? A nation? An Organization? State their association and which characters they are tethered to]» Appearance Written:
Ase was a slim, but toned boy in life. Afterwards, he is no different, having the body of a 15 year old as a Hollow. He has short black hair, and has very dark red eyes. His hair is a mess, as if he always is awakening from a nap. He is almost always seen smiling when speaking to anyone (or anything) that he is familiar with. When speaking to anything else, he loses the smile, and looks a lot more serious. Being that his physical age is 15, he has a childlike look to him, along with a childlike voice, although he is much older than that. His hollow mask is a skull that sits on his right shoulder, split in half with the bottom half missing. It has just a slit for an opening of the eyes, and a smooth bone surface where there would be an opening for the nasal passageway. The mask is also cracked all around, resembling a look of when a rock hits ice, although it's still in tact.
His skin tone is light (think Nel), and is very smooth. However, his hands feel very rough, as though he has always been fighting. Aside from his head and face (though, no facial hair), he is hairless: no hair on his arms or legs. If it weren't for the hollow hole over the right side of his chest, he'd look like the typical young boy. He has surprisingly white teeth, and his canines are slightly sharper than average canines, and an abnormally longer tongue. He has scars that adorn his body all over, to include one that crosses his left eyebrow. Ase wears a black tank-top, and black shorts. His arms are completely covered in what appears to be white fighters tape just where the tank-top ends and his shoulders begin. Same with his legs, starting on his upper thigh this time down to his ankles. He wears a pair of black "kung fu" type shoes. He doesn't appear to carry any weapons.» Appearance Image:

II. Personality» Personality:
Ase is very joking and playful, trending towards his childlike appearance, when with people he knows and is comfortable around, and goes to a more serious look around ones he isn't. Whenever he is with companions, he will be more cheerful, and will tend to try to get the others with him to act as such as well, making people see him as more annoying than anything. During his tenure in Hueco Mundo, Ase lived a long afterlife of loneliness and isolation. Although he is seen mostly joking and playful, he will often times be seen staring off into the distance, as if there was something on his mind.
Although cheerful around companions, he has yet to meet someone he truly cared about. He has watched many Hollows and Arrancars meet their fate, and held no remorse for them. He also has no problem with killing one of his companions should the time arise to do so, whether it be an order, or the companion did something worth being destroyed. Sympathy has not found a place to sit in his soul, as he was shown none when he was Human.
When in times of stress, Ase will look more serious, and will no longer be his cheery and playful self. This is especially true when in combat. He becomes a much more sinister and angry person than before, though anger isn't his driving force. He must be told to retreat, as he will continue fighting if given the chance, unless he is absolutely overwhelmed.
Ase is obsessed with combat, wanting to always hone his skills so that he may not be beaten as he was in life. He wants others to feel what he felt in the world of the living, wanting to break them physically, and through that method it will break them mentally.
When working with his superior, he is absolutely obedient, and will do whatever he is told with no questions asked as to why. When in charge of others, he is much more relaxed, ruling more as a democracy and taking ideas from others, issuing orders only when need be. When working with equal level of power, he prefers working as a team to come up with a strategy, rather than just brute force into situations.
Although he prefers the souls of Humans, he will not hesitate to consume any soul that is readily available when given the chance. Cannibalism is not out of the question for him, as he believes you must use any means necessary to survive in this world. He realized this after only a couple long years as a hollow, putting himself in dangerous situations to satiate his hunger. A soul is a soul. The picky only hinder themselves, and when it comes to the dangerous world of Hueco Mundo, its survival of the fittest.
III. History» History:
- Life Before Hollowfication:
Ase was born in the city of Tokyo on 1 September, 2307. He grew up a troubled life, for his family was a part of a medium sized gang during the time. He had 1 older brother who was 5 years his elder, and no other siblings. His family was considerably rich, seeing that they did a lot of illegal jobs for the gang.
Ase's family was involved with underground fighting rings, and both him and his brother were fighters respectively. His father told him "If you can't fight with your hands, you don't deserve a weapon to hold.", and never allowed him to practice with anything but his own fists and legs. He was taught "Jeet Kun Do", an ancient fighting style created by a Human warrior long ago, starting at the age of 7. Even as a boy, when being trained by either his father, brother, or one of the family trainers, they would hit him with considerable force, not really holding too much back. That is when he was taught that there is no such thing as "practice", one must be ready to fight to the fullest at all times.
Ase was the runt of the family, being that the family had their heir already. However, his parents still treated him as their son, although they had their obvious favorite. His brother was his best friend, and would do his best to train him and teach him whenever he could. They would hang out whenever they got the chance, playing games, watching movies, or even training in the dojo. He would still attend school, have his birthday celebrated, and even given presents. However, that would change as soon as he turned 15.
After attending a fighting tournament one night, Ase's father was driving home, when a drunk driver veered onto his side of the road, and crashed head on. Although his father lived, the driver of the other vehicle was instantly killed. That driver was the leader of the gangs son, which put Ase's family in huge trouble with the boss.
The gang leader called for a meeting with his father and mother. Afterwards, Ase noticed that when they returned home, they seemed act different, not looking him in the face. As they returned, his father spoke to his brother in private, then told him to come, and that he must take part in a fighting tournament tonight. Confused, but not going against his fathers wishes, Ase got into his fighting clothes, and left with his parents.
After driving for some time, they reached their destination: An abandoned construction site, with 15ft fences and huge concrete walls surrounding the opening of the gate. It was starting to rain. As his parents and him exited the car, Ase was told to go in first, and right after he took a few steps in, the gates shut, and were being locked by 2 men with metal chains and a lock. Ase, confused, came back to the fence and tried to open it, to no avail. He looked to his father, who was not looking at him.
As this happened, from further inside the site, a dozen young men came out, all looking around the age of 18. Ase turned, and as he did so, they all rushed towards him. He held his own for a few seconds, but he was easily overwhelmed, as there were just too many. "Why...." he thought, as the punches and kicks landed onto him, his blood hitting the puddles of water that were filling from the rain.
A couple men held his arms to each side. Ase was starting to lose consciousness, and looked up to see his parents standing with a man he recognized as the gang leader. A figure walked in front of him, a face he recognized. His brother, standing there, fists clenched, and what looked to be blood on his face and hands. Ase couldn't tell if there were tears on his brothers face, as his brother slammed fists into his stomach, causing Ase to hunch over while the others held him up. Blood dripped from his face, his eyes swelled, as his brother started to hit in square in the center of his face. As Ase started to lose consciousness, one of the others held his head up, and Ase could see his brother looking back towards his parents, saw the man next to them nod, and turned back to him. "I-...sor-..." He couldn't hear. His brother grabbed the top of his head, and with a powerful punch, hit him right in his throat, collapsing his windpipe completely.
"Why...? My own family...my own brother...why?" Ase was beaten, no, broken, by the people he trusted. By his own blood. As he lost consciousness, anger filled him. Then, everything went black.
- Hollow to Arrancar:
In Ase's Hollow form, he had smokey grey skin, and he had a skull face mask that had huge canine teeth, with a slit for where his eyes were. Ase does not remember what transpired prior to his mask removal, to include his history of life. He had huge memory loss only knowing that he needed to survive by eating souls.
One day, though, as he was in the world of the living, he looked at some of the bloodshed he was causing, and had a slight flashback of his death. The blood, the bruises, the broken bones. He was overcome with hate and anger, remembering all that happened that night. He put his hands to his face, let out a huge scream, and began to pull on up on his mask, with all his strength and anger. After a couple seconds, the mask began to move, and in a split second, lifted and cracked, shattering on the bottom half.
There was only white. He couldn't see, or feel. As what felt like hours passed by, he slowly began to regain his vision. This time, he was not in the world of the living, but the deserts of Hueco Mundo. He sat up, looked at his hands, and saw his hands looked human, same with his legs. As he looked at his hands, he started to clench them into a fist, and punched the sand beneath him, causing a small eruption of sand to disperse. He was still angry, still felt broken and betrayed. He made himself a goal: To break others as was done to him. There was no other choice.

VI. Sealed Powers » Zanpakutô Name:
Koi Nuno (Dark Cloth)» Zanpakutô Appearance:
Contrary to the name, in it's sealed state, Koi Nuno is a white fighting tape that is constantly wrapped around Ase's arms and legs, to include his hands. Once in combat, the wrap seems to move, constantly wrapping around the above mentioned parts.» Unique Power:
- Koi Nuno:
Ase's theme is centered around being "broken" physically, to the point where it breaks you mentally, and uses this painful experience from his past to create a force that breaks his enemies, all while preventing himself from breaking like that ever again. His strength and Hierro are increased, his wraps protecting his skin from damage, while channeling reiatsu through them to increase damage.
- Tsubureru (Crush):
If Ase lands a hit on an opponent, he can command Koi Nuno to wrap itself around the point hit, crushing the enemy. This happens instantly once commanded, the wrap shooting immediately out to a max length of 10 feet. If the target is out of reach, it will retract. If Ase grabs an opponent in a grapple, the tape will slowly surround his enemy, slowly putting them into a mummified type wrap. Once fully wrapped, will again attempt to crush the enemy. If already caught by this ability, an opponent can use their strength to break free of the hold. While he activates either of these moves, his defense is lowered, due to the wraps not focusing on defense.
- Cero Redirection:
Due to Ase having little ranged to no capabilities, he uses his reiatsu to channel a Cero, only he can form it upon a point of his wraps to give a powerful hit behind his punch or kick.
While Ase has high close quarters combat capabilities, his ranged capabilities are very limited. He is also not very well trained in the use of Pesquisa.
VII. Resurrección» Resereccion Name:
Shin no sentōki» Resereccion Release Phrase:
Ase doesn't say anything to release.» Release Actions:
He thinks about the past and what happened to him. (Note, he must be willing to resurrect)» Resereccion Appearance:
Ase's wraps on his arms and legs appear to unwrap, and tornado around him for 5-7 seconds, completely covering him. They change colors from white to black. After the time, they attach to him, however this time they cover him entire body, only leaving an opening for his eyes and his hair. The tape also appears to look a lot more metallic than before. » Resereccion Abilities:
This form focuses on Ase's speed, drastically increasing his movements and striking speeds, further allowing him to break his opponents.
The wraps will now have a much sharper edge to them, allowing them to pierce his opponents after his strikes. If they hit an enemy, they will attempt to grasp onto a bone, or whatever they can get ahold of, and pull it out of them (enemies can pull them out before damage is done).

IX. Role Play Sample» Roleplay Sample:
Walking in the deserts of Hueco Mundo, Ase seemed to be lost in thought. "Hmm, Los Angeles sounds interesting..
" Ase always pondered why it was called the "city of angels". Maybe there were more tasty souls there for him to try. He was getting tired of the bland hollow souls he had been devouring over the years. As he walked back to the stack of boulders he called his home, he saw that there were hollows already there, only 500 feet from him, rummaging through the few items and books that he had. He sighed "Why do they always take MY spot? It's like they have a death wish or something..
" , and in an instant, he used his mastery of the sonido to close the distance to 100 feet, firing his cero at the closest hollow. The beam shot out fast, fast enough to hit the first hollow before it knew it was coming, taking a huge chunk out of its body, and collapsing it. There was 1, no, 2 left, he could sense another already moving to his left to try to flank him. "I guess it was rude to not say hello first." He dashed left, to meet the Hollow head on and try to catch it by surprise. Reaching it with lightning speed, he threw a flat palm out to its face, grasping it, connecting dead center. "It's nice to meet you! My name is Ase, what's yours?
" The hollow couldn't speak, or formulate any coherent response. The sheer surprise from Ase's actions had the words stuck in the hollows throat. As the hollow snapped out of it and attempted to bear hug him, he deftly jumped over it, using the face as a lift to the other side. It was at this point the other 2 hollows have collected themselves, and were heading straight towards him. Ase landed, turned towards them, closing his eyes for just a second. Pointing his finger at one of them, he smiled. "Cero
". As it connected, a huge cloud of sand and dust filled the area around the blast zone. The hollow in front of Ase, horrified, turned to see him standing there with a smile, and attempted to back away. "Well, you know it's rude to go into someone's home uninvited.. And to not even give me your name. Tsk tsk tsk
" Ase slowly walked towards the hollow, "Well, Los Angeles will have to wait I guess. Your soul will have to do for now.
