Psychological AnalysisInsanity given form, Alvah is nothing but a being that is proof of a demon’s obsession persisting, even after death. However, that persistence has left him a shell of himself. The need to destroy and conquer no longer remains, replaced by a void. Now, he is left curious and impassive, wandering from place to place for something to spark joy in his corrupted soul. This has left the Arrancar calmer and wiser than his demonic counterpart, leaving room for growth that was never capable in his life as a groomed monster.
However, somethings never change, and Alvah cannot escape his primary function. Battle is one of the few things that excites him. It is an addiction that acts up every now and then, possessing him into aggressive bouts, but he is no longer a creature out for bloodshed. His addiction is not sated by destruction, but it is sated by song and dance. A battle has become something of a story to Alvah, a tale that writes itself based on the actors. He enjoys the struggle and the eventual end, and he enjoys the rise after the fall that follows. Whether the opponents slay one another or not means little to him. As long as it is a fight worth remembering is all that matters.
You can say, he is out to create rather than destroy, to push the boundaries of storytelling through blood, sweat, tears. Atrocities aren't beneath him if it creates a work of true fiction, but that also means he has the ability to do good as well. Saving a child so that they will grow into a warrior seeking vengeance or joining the heroes to defeat the villain only because it is the natural flow of storytelling is how Alvah views conflict now. With that noted, if the villains require a push so that the climax is truly appetizing, he is not afraid to switch his allegiances. The world is a paper, and he is but a pen.
A demon born during WW4, Alvah was one of the many creatures that exist simply to die on the battlefield for ShadowFall. His history is short, only a brat that existed 2 years after the great war had begun. He had loved his kind then, he had enjoyed the battlefield, and he had enjoyed the boons of numbing slaughter. His powers relied on his ability to take and main and kill and destroy, and thus, he did so. Each death, he fed off of. Each soul, he devoured. Every emotion, he found succulent. He grew stronger as the times went on, becoming more than just an average grunt the more he fed his existence. Enough so that he became somewhat esteemed among his peers, a fighter that seemed to never weaken on the battlefield, a true savant that brought for demon glory.
However, it all began to crumble. First, it became impossible to not notice the frailty of ShadowFall. Despite its importance to demons, many seemed content. They lacked the drive to conquer Earth and the measly humans that lived but a fraction of their lifespans. Though, that simply brought forth another conundrum. His kind are a kind that selfishly walk forward without looking back, sometimes to their demise and sometimes to glory. He had been blessed with glory, yet, those around him fell constantly. They are beings meant to live longer than most, but die like roaches under pesticide. That is their way, but ShadowFall had dimmed such thinking. This societal existence sickened Alvah. Why is this war still going? Why hasn’t every race bowed by now? Is their Queen too weak? Is ShadowFall too weak? America is not enough!
And then, came forth the biggest insult to his very reason for existing. ShadowFall gave up. Suddenly, America became infested with these so-called Quincy that began cleansing their hold. Instead of countering and destroying the gnats, Mana, his leader, the one who chased her goals the most out of all demons, simply gave it up. At that moment, he understood. It was not ShadowFall that had grown weak and common. It was its leader. He would have none of it. They may remain content with the demon world, but his obsession with everything that is not his shall be his undoing…, or his call to glory.
However, death had come for him, defeat at the hands of common warriors who sought not glory and recognition. They sought to protect the weak and relinquish the souls he had come to devour. However, the lust of a warrior is not so easily quelled, and even as his soul felt nothingness near, he stood beyond the threshold of his hatred, and he resisted even death itself with his powers. However, it left him broken, incapable of anything but basic movement.
The negativity rippling from his faint existence called to him one of the creatures he saw as mere foot soldiers, its massive height leaving the sky a dark void as its horrific maw opened and devoured what was left of him. He began to understand true misery then. His life as a mere nameless monster crashed down on him as the Hollows that congregated in this beast's mass broke his mind. Soon, he was as mindless as them, anything before his assimilation a distant memory.
What brought him life after he had lost his mind was the sudden aggression shown by the Hollow he mingled with in their combined state. Another consciousness becoming more aware stirred his stagnant soul, its desire to become more than just another blotch in the endless black sea moving it to try and gain control of all the other souls. However, it gave Alvah power. Watching another fight for life ticked something off in his head before he encouraged the being to seize control, but it came with a price. He fought it tooth and nail for dominance, pushing it to become something more, but, in the end, it failed and left Alvah the only mind left. That is when the giant being he was collapsed into itself, losing its giant form for something new. For the first time after months or years, Alvah witnessed the night sky in the barren land of Hueco Mundo.
His mask breaking did not come until months later. With his new life, he wandered, watching the happenings of Hollow around him. A foreign entity in these lands, being a Hollow was something he found unfamiliar. He did not know why, but he simply knew he was not like the others. When another Hollow came to fight him, he fought back, basking in the fight until his opponent either ran or died. He hunted, finding it a necessity to keep the other voices within him in check, but he found no particular pleasantries from it.
It wasn't until he ran into an Arrancar that he decided to escape from his repetitive existence. It began as a fight, Hollow vs Arrancar. Alvah was hungry, and he did not care who he ate. However, the Arrancar spot of ways to escape from his pain and evolve. That did not stop their battle, but Alvah saw it as a chance to test his strength, and as he began to lose, he did remove his mask, transforming. To say the least, he cut down the Arrancar that had taught him this new evolution. It was a fitting end to the tale they had wrote together.
Now, he found himself different once again, his mind still lost on how he came to be, but with a more familiar form, he found himself aspiring for new things. Set in his wandering ways, he charged into the world, one step at a time, wondering what new experiences he will encounter now.

Alvah's Reiatsu has a peculiar feeling. It is something of a gentle wave, but feels devious in nature, like somethings waiting beneath the surface to strike. It is hard to escape that feeling of dread that'd come over someone once they experience it, always making Alvah seem untrustworthy.
Alvah's skill with his Zanpakuto is a noteworthy detail. He does not understand it himself, but he finds it easy and simple to combat others, even those far stronger than himself. Almost like a distant memory at the tip of his tongue, his blade moves with unknowing skill, his actions surprising himself at times. He feels it is something to do with his past, an event perhaps that affects him even now after his soul has changed as it had.
Surprisingly smart, Alvah is capable of deep thought and quick deduction.
An ability that allows Alvah to travel the in-between of reality and appear in different worlds. He has become familiar with this ability, enough so that he can even use it to traverse the same world, traveling long distances in an instant. Though, he has found no real use of this technique in combat and relies on it for travel only.
Alvah's Hierro is far from weak, but it is not something he has invested too much of his time into. It is as valuable as any weapon in combat, and he makes use of it as moments necessitate.
Alvah has developed the ability to move in his own way. Subconsciously influenced by his final battle as a Demon, Alvah created a new technique that combined his Sonido and Zanpakuto.
>To me, my Soul:
This technique is simple, taking Alvah's capabilities with Sonido and connecting it with his Zanpakuto. It works through a special connection between the two that goes beyond his blade being a simple holder of his latent power. As with their connection, he is able to utilize a special technique that nullifies the downsides of Sonido by moving him towards his Zanpakuto if it is away from him. Unlike most Sonido techniques, this move creates no sound, filtering it out by creating a special energy connection that acts as a sort of funnel that Alvah slips into and out of in mere nanoseconds. This funnel also gives him the ability to move through any object between him and his Zanpakuto unless directly blocked by another spiritual technique.
>>Bala and Cero:
As with any Arrancar, Alvah boasts the ability to utilize the silent rays of energy they fire. He has no particular reason to evolve his understanding of these techniques, outside of being easy ways to distract opponents.
As a Demon, Alvah's energy was natural toxic to life, corrupting it and twisting it into horrid fascinations of his design. As an Arrancar, his powers have fundamentally changed to match his new existence. Though he is wary of his arm, he understands its power enough to utilize it at a basic level for now.
His left arm still contains some negative aspects of his demonic past, infusing it with his Hollow Reiryoku to create a special mixture of energy that destabilizes anything it comes in contact with at a physical and spiritual level. Due to the natural toxicity of Hollow energy, he causes anything he touches to burn and basically begin falling apart. However, this scales with his Nucleo and only affects objects in a physical nature: burning skin, causing rashes, and irritating cells, melting tissue and bone.
On the spiritual side, his ability to harm a person's ability to generate energy scales off of his Spirit Class due to his residual demonic energy. Even if a person's physical body is unharmed, prolonged contact with his left hand will erode any energy that comes in contact with his own. Those of equal or higher Spirit Class find it easier to shrug off the effects of this dead zone where energy cannot gather. This stops people from being able to be healed where they are sliced and stops energy from gathering there for attacks.
>>Release: Gorge, Devorador
Alvah is consumed by his energy, his body covered in a waterfall of blood-like Reiryoku before he slices through the cascading energy with his new formed blade, transformed in his entirety.
In his Resurreccion, Alvah returns to looking more like his demonic form: his skin greyed with black bone-like armor decorating his person, atop his brow more armor-like bone grows decorating his head with a crown as the black sclera around his eyes turn red, and his chest lights up in its center, his hollow hole seemingly glowing with yellow and red energy that bleeds down his body.
His Zanpakuto transforms into its old state, taking the form of the longsword he wielded as a Demon.
>The Ultimate Siphon:
Alvah's Ress gives him the ability to steal vitality from his opponents. This is done through physical contact with said person, whether with his Zanpakuto or body. Each attack siphons a portion of a character's strength, stealing 2.5% to 5% of a person's overall power. The ratio is variable due to the discrepancy of ability that every opponent may have. Those stronger than Alvah make it harder for him to siphon from compared to weaker opponents.
This energy stolen is used mainly to strengthen Alvah, eventually making him stronger than his opponent, but he does have the ability to take all the siphoned energy he's gathered and use it to heal himself which scales on the total percentage of vitality he has taken. 25% is usually used to heal minor wounds, 50% can be used to heal lost limbs, 75% for lost organs, and anything above 90% will basically allow him to survive something that would normally kill a person.
Healing himself does cause any percentage boost he's acquired from fighting to be lost.
Alvah's crux, as you will. This is basically a get out of jail free card for him that replaces his aumentor with regeneration, allowing him to heal. However, this ability can only be used once per thread and, once used, Alvah loses his aumentor percentage boost for the remainder of the thread. This change to healing himself only lasts for three posts however, leaving the skill basically untrained afterwards.

Is there a range on this? Can it be disabled externally? How does he actually activate it on someone?The Ultimate Siphon:
As it stands, there isn't really enough here to justify this degree of skill sheet, especially considering he's only recently died and been made into an Arrancar. I would say drop his Speed at least to Adept, as well as his Mental Deduction. Having such high Hollow Nucleus also seems somewhat odd, considering his abnormal history and minimal prior hollow nature to naturally be in tune with. I would lower that to Adept. Additionally, Advanced Cero is fairly high when your only note for it is that he doesn't really use it or like using it.[/mod]Skills

[mod]Takin' over this check pardner.
- Initial Check:
This is fine, but it can't be instantaneous. Change it to a shortening of the distance.
To me, my Soul
Remove the wording of 'Nanoseconds' given it's quite misleading of his actual skill.
Also need an explanation for this, in a trait or something:
"It works through a special connection between the two that goes beyond his blade being a simple holder of his latent power."
Bala and Cero
Bala and Cero aren't inherently silent, and given by the description he hasn't developed anything unique about these.
"Due to the natural toxicity of Hollow energy, he causes anything he touches to burn and basically begin falling apart. However, this scales with his Nucleo and only affects objects in a physical nature: burning skin, causing rashes, and irritating cells, melting tissue and bone."
Nucleo compared to what? Just need some more detail here.
"Even if a person's physical body is unharmed, prolonged contact with his left hand will erode any energy that comes in contact with his own."
Quantify the amount of needed contact with (1) post.
"This stops people from being able to be healed where they are sliced and stops energy from gathering there for attacks."
Also add some means of quantifying how long this lasts.
Unless him specifically having a lacking Hierro for his level is a detail you want, Hierro is based off SC.
"This is done through physical contact with said person, whether with his Zanpakuto or body."
Needs a post amount to quantify how much contact is needed also. Is this a continuous drain? Please expand.
"Those stronger than Alvah make it harder for him to siphon from compared to weaker opponents."
What determines this, SC? What's the difference in power theft between higher/equal leveled opponents and weaker ones?
"25% is usually used to heal minor wounds, 50% can be used to heal lost limbs, 75% for lost organs, and anything above 90% will basically allow him to survive something that would normally kill a person."
Again, would help to have some further clarity of how these add up.
Given how the tradeoff between Augmentar and Regenrar is regarded as a permanent decision, this ability doesn't really gel with the idea, especially since his previous ability already grants the ability to steal life force and have an increasingly better ability to heal, so this isn't really gonna work.
Alright so, given he's both pretty much a fresh hollow and now Arrancar, as well as not having much precedent for these skills being so high outside of his past life, which he was severely weakened at the end of before getting eaten by a Gillian, i'm going to ask you to drop the following:
Martial Skill to Advanced [He only has an instinctive memory of swordsmanship in addition to likely just fighting Hollows in Hueco Mundo, rather than a practiced upon mastery]
General Speed to Adept [There isn't really much special about his speed apart from the typical supernatural reasonings]
Mental Deduction to Adept [Same type of reasoning here]
Cero to Beginner [The trait specifically states that there's no unique qualities or applications to his Cero or Bala]
Sonido to Adept [While he does have a single unique Sonido technique, it's pretty simplistic in nature]
You're free to add more to his history or traits to justify a higher level in these, but right now there isn't quite enough justification for what's here.
