ULV AUBER | WHITE MASK BUDDHA
"Of course you want to ask me. You are never here except when you want something, and you never take what I give you when you are here" Ulv took the pause and spoke her own words, making her disdain so very
clear for Takehiko. Alavazi said nothing after giving Takehiko a traditional bow, and then just watched. Ulv listened to the second part and then just sighed. She had a whole powerset designed to help with this kind of situation, but she didn't know if she even wanted Takehiko to keep Akuma. He was a fool just like his uncle and that was not youthful naivety as he was proving.
"Part of the blame sits with Byakuya. He just locked you in the compound and left you to rot when I first met you. From that you didn't have the experience to know what was a dumb move. But most of it is your fault. Not listening to your elders, to the people who are demonstrably better at the subject than you. This should have gone double since you failed Shin'o Academy and only graduated from the same manner of abuse that got you into Karakura Prison. You are a text book example of why Nobles need an academy of their own to teach them how not to become fucked up. Something I might talk to Abalia about later"
Ulv stood there, arms crossed, staring down at him without blinking or moving a muscle. She was almost a talking statue.
"The answer, is yes. Hollows like yours are literally just condensed negativity. Hollows like Hvit and Haereticus are different, especially due to the Evolucion, but yours is new, and simple. Which means they burn without a single ash remaining. It's much easier before you accept the Hollow into your soul, to make yourself a proper mask-wielding Vizard. This will scald your soul and it will take work to recover. But, ignore that at your own choice" Ulv would reach out a hand to clamp none too gently around Takehiko's head, and then flush him with her Resolve Flame. A deep, powerful flame, it was like touching The Sun.
There was warmth, but not heat that such a powerful flame should have. It moved down to the smallest, most fine part of his body, and Takehiko could feel
his very cells alight with the flame. And then it was over. It wouldn't be immediately evident, but Takehiko's reiatsu would feel heavy and hard to control as Ulv had to effectively burn out the Hollow.
"You can leave now. Preferably forever, but knowing you it won't be" Ulv told him, the passionate emotion in her eyes tempered with a cold hammer.
