"You make me dead inside"
ClixxCharacter True Age:Ashlei
likes to tell people she is 268. This however is false as she was born over 500 years ago and does not like to revisit the past. Her life to her started when she was 268. However she knows shes more like 512.Character Appearance Age:
's endeavours have caused her alignment to change a lot other the years. Before she was a lone soldier, then she wandered and found the Espada. She took that over after overcoming the current cero espada and had been sitting in that throne ever since for years.Personality:The EspadaAshlei
is an espada and theres no mistaking that. Ever since she died as a human she has always been following the path of a hollow and fuelling her anger and rage into her tiny body, ready to explode with her killer instincts and natural destructive aspirations. However, she isn’t just a warrior that stands for an aspect of death like the Espada before her reign. Ashlei
is a girl that commands herself and her army as an entire organisation rather than a series of ten men and women. Her decisions reflect that of a general in the edo period and her lust for blood and battle never ceases. This is why she is an espada. However, there have always been different branches and organisations she could move into. K-world would openly take her and some other antagonist groups have actually petitioned that she joins them. All of which were dismissed as she would never leave the Espada. Ashlei
is an Arrancar and that power runs through her veins. You can’t take away the sands of her life and every indent into its dunes that she created whilst being here.Brute Force is the way!Ashlei
would be the first person to agree and even decide that brute force is always the way to get through to something. During a tactical meeting her initial decision would be to storm the front gates, storm the back gates, storm everything that looks like a gate and destroy it. If there are no gates, make gates to destroy! However she isn’t stupid enough to do that every time and knows when simply attacking isn’t enough. Ashlei
’s command of stealth and interrogation is also greatly admired but also not that well known. Having people not realising just how violent and dangerous Ashlei
can be is an advantage to those that openly underestimate her power.ManipulativeAshlei
’s common behaviour is to act as though she knows nothing and isn’t capable of anything. This is how she sets off her manipulative side by pretending to be weak and unable to be contained. Just by doing this she makes men drop their guard but it also works on girls that are often taken in by cute things. Ashlei
starts to act like her littlest sister Flea by doing things she wouldn’t or anybody would normally not do. An actual experience to this was from Diablo Cortar, Ashleis Segunda Espada of whom watched her lazily fall off of a branch in the Menos Forest, acting perfectly natural about falling and fluttered back up to the branch as though nothing had even happened. In times of seriousness though it’s unlikely that she will use her charming and cute mode of address. However, even in battle against a weaker foe she would play around and act stupid for her own amusement.Never Insult her!
That is when she takes insults the wrong way. Ashlei
cannot stand being insulted as she finds such a dishonour unfitting for a girl of her status. At times she used to be called ‘Little Shit’ just because she was so small. Now if anybody makes references to her being smaller than them, she will openly kill them without any care in the results. Nobody with such a tongue shall talk to the Queen of the Sands in such a manner if they wish to keep their life. It’s a shame that some people don’t always follow that simple rule.Favourite Thing!
If you asked Ashlei
what her most favourite thing is in the world, and hopefully without her sisters around to change her answer, she would say Books and novels. Theres just something about sitting down in a silent room with a good book to read. Not that Ashlei
ever has much time on her hands, but when she just wants to calm down she will flick on some reading glasses of some Dracula themed style and stare at a book for hours. And by a book we obviously mean the entire library. Ashlei
has read every single book in the Espada Library at least three times and can recite them all without any sort of hints of help to what she needed to state next. Ashlei
aims to know everything about the world and its history. This also includes fictional stories of worlds not even in existence in case she plans to hop dimensions one day. But then again, a book is just a book. To Ashlei
, it’s a means of Escaping her life and also any work she had to do that day.The Daughter
It’s also wise to remember that Ashlei
is the daughter of Claire Clixx, the woman renown for being insane and killing people for fun. Well Ashlei
is no different. Even though she was only a foster mother, Ashlei
gained so much from Claire that she may as well be a little wannabe for her mother. Ever since her mother disappeared for yet another unknown reason, Ashlei
has been more and more unstable to the point where she fights like an absolute nut job that won’t go down until everybody including her is bathing in a Jacuzzi made of blood and bones. She also has no sense of shame and will willingly bite into peoples arms and limbs like a rabbid dog and actually try to bite their limbs off from their torso. If she can;t do that, she will openly bite chunks out of people, claw at them with her nails and even break parts of her own body to add to the pleasure of masochism. Something really is messed up about the girl so never get her excited to fight. She will stick to you like a blood sucking, man eating, fucked up crazy glue.Better than you!
It is a natural thing for Ashlei
to feel better than you. The way that she was brought up reflects how she wants to be the superior master race of the world. To get there, she wants to climb to the top of the espada then climb even higher, retaining her old form she longs for and eventually ruling over the universe. This is why she hates it when other people decide that they are superior to Ashlei
. She will not bother thinking of a witty comment to say and just dive bomb onto their body before tearing their rip cage open and using their own blood to suffocate them. Not like they were alive when she pulled their damn heart out but it’s what you get if you think your better than this damn witch. Suppose that she takes Metaphorical terms to the literal extremes.Cute and CuddlyAshlei
has been noted as being cute. It’s wise to remember this as her appearance is actually a very powerful tool for seducing men and women alike. It’s not like she has a preference to what person she lusts for, but her sudden change into a timid girl with a shy disposition can make even the strongest will men turn for her. Would it be weird if we found out Ashlei
likes to cuddle? You’d be amazed that this girl loves intimacy and uses that to her manipulative advantage, killing victims after having her way with them.Victorian British!
Has anybody noticed the girl is British? Even though she grew up in a village far from Karakura she was still within Japan. The reason why she sounds British is because she simply likes the way it sounds and since becoming an Espada, set her aim to have a British accent and dialect. This is why some people don’t understand her but she also pushes her stuck up and posh nature above people from talking like this. Seeing as she dresses smart as well, she would be easily mistaken for a noble family member and likes it when people think of her in such a way. To those that have never met her before, she could probably pass off for a shinigami without garbs just from how she appears to be from one of the four main noble families. However, the entirety of this is false as she was brought up in a completely opposite life.Blood Sucking Vampire!
It could be useful to realise that Ashlei
considers herself to be a full blown vampire. In fact, due to her Powers and nature, she may as well be a vampire. She drinks blood, she speaks in a British dialect, she lures people to abandoned buildings to kill them, she loves to travel by night and jumps from building to building. Maybe if she had the power to turn into a vampire bat she would pretty much be a legitimate vampire.Sister!Ashlei
is related to an entire flock of other girls that exceed ten in number. Some are missing, some have yet to be found and some have been located, now living in Las Noches with Ashlei
the eldest of the sisters. Ashlei
cares for every one of her sisters deeply and stands up for them in any confrontation. Her lonely past to be reunited with the girls is a blessing to such a horrible woman and she embraces that blessing, protecting the girls from all harm. Ashlei
loves them all.What keeps her going
Ever since her mother abandoned her, Ashlei
has lost that list of likes she had in the world. This is probably why she wishes to embrace death on so many occassions. This doesn’t necessarily mean that she will commit suicide because she now has people to love for. Her sisters keep her heart beating and she wont die just for that one reason. It’s also recommended that people refer to her favourite food. She adores Strawberry sundaes and anything red. In fact, she absolutely adores blood as well. Isn’t that a neat fact? Ashlei
tends to bathe in blood instead of normal water which explains her soft pale skin tone.Hates!
However, there is a long list of everything Ashlei
hates. She cannot stand any references made about her mother as they just make her reflect on the horrible loneliness she has been left with. She hates all Shinigami as none of them are worth listening to or even considering as equals to the Arrancar. She hates being looked down upon as she is better than everyone else and will make sure everyone knows it. She hates being ignored because she believes every word she says has certain meaning and should never be discerned. The list goes on,Eating Habits
Ashleis eating habits tend to get a bit out of hand to what is plausibly realistic. Ashlei
can’t eat anything otherwise she instantly throws up but her bodily system can’t produce bile and vomit, but hurls up gallons of blood. Where this appears to be coming from makes little sense. When she goes to eat something, it is converted into blood through her powers and she can’t take it in because it’s not from a living substance. She then throws it up and amazingly, uses it in her attacks if she wants. What she can eat however, are parts of living creatures and people which is why she likes to capture straggling humans and eat them in abandoned alleyways and houses. Seeing as food disagrees with her body, all she can eat and drink are liquids. This is when you see her drinking glasses of blood to replenish her supplies almost ever few hours and also why she only ever eats ice cream and strawberry jam. Weird?Sleepy Princess
Theres one other thing to take into account and that is Ashleis time spent awake to asleep ratio. A day is in 24 hours where Ashlei
will only actively be awake for 6 where most humans are awake for at least 12. Ashlei
’s body tends to shut down even after low activity and she falls asleep after 6 hours of being awake and then sleeps the remaining 18 until she will wake up again and do the same thing. It’s best to catch Ashlei
when she is awake because she tends to wake up in a damn foul mood if she got less than exactly 6 hours sleep. If she accidentally or was deliberately woken up, she will fall asleep and refresh the timer so she sleeps for an entire 6 hours, even if she woke up after 5 hours.Getting ExcitedAshlei
does have somewhat of an issue when she gets too excited. By making Ashlei
incredibly happy but not in a way that's simple pleasure happiness like hugging someone or getting a present, Ashlei
shifts her personality completely. This causes Ashlei
to suddenly burst into laughter and she just cannot stop laughing. This is very dangerous though because if she starts to laugh, its likely she will enter her stronger states just because she can't keep herself from feeling so good. In short and as a very helpful tip, never make Ashlei
happy in Combat. She will just become more and more hard to predict.Personal IssuesAshlei
could be seen as somebody with a long list of personal issues. This does make her very odd and confusing to understand but she has one feature that just scares people to death. Ashlei
derives pleasure both happiness and sexual from pain. meaning if she is ever injured in combat she will not let it get to her and would probably groan before striking back twice as hard. There have been times when Ashlei
was so happy she took out her sword and repeatedly stabbed her hand until it was so red it couldn't be called a hand anymore. Soon after she killed more people to regeneration her hand just to do it again with a different object and repeat the process. Something truly is wrong about Ashlei
, but she will never cut anything deep above her neck.Proven WrongAshlei
isn't one to simply let something go. if she was ever insulted or blamed for something she never did, she wouldn't hold back until she proved them wrong. Either that, or she would kill the person in question rather painfully. In combat Ashlei
is no different. She tends to kill without them being able to tell her to stop and when conversations break out, she tries to keep their length to a minimum rather than just wearily grinding the day away with little action. It's not like Ashlei
to let people survive even if they fought respectively or were a good match. It just means she won't have to fight that tricky person again and saves her the trouble.Attitudes
Ashleis attitude tends to alter depending on what form she has taken. When she is in her True form she likes to simply destroy and be done with it. Things tend to end quickly when she is pumping this amount of power. Her regal form takes a different approach as she appears much more stubborn and stuck up towards nearly everyone. This is understandable however. Her knight form acts more brave and much wiser as she thinks of things better tactically rather than using her destroy it all strategies. her sorceress form is her more silent form as she keeps her mind to herself and doesn't bother talking much. She also pretends to act stupid more in this form because she looks much more innocent. Her turn back form however has a different personality to this as she acts how she used to: A freaky little girl that has little sisters to look after. All the different appearances of Ashlei
know that their changing their attitude and Ashlei
does it all in the aid of getting a good laugh out of it. After all, she is nuts.ReputationAshlei
's diabolic personality has gotten her a lot of reputation. A lot of the time she see's very little action and there's one cause of that: Ashlei
is very frightening. People have even told her that she is too scary to be considered viable to attack. Maybe that is why her seat in the Espada has been boring her. Nobody is brave enough to walk into her throne and take her on. This does however, give her a sort of exaggerated opinion of herself. She thinks she is scary, sexy and very over the top. That's probably another reason to be afraid of her: She thinks she is better than you...PhilosophicalAshlei
has shown that she can be very philosophical when it comes to her life in times of crisis. She will often calm down and speculate simple things such as 'why is the sky blue?' and 'why do spiders need eight legs when we are fine with two?'. It is wise to try and break Ashlei
out of this mode as she starts to genuinely forget things and doesn't seem as smart as she usually is.Appearance:
is an Arrancar to heart and because of this, she has a hollow body part as well as a humanoid body and Shinigami-like form as every Arrancar has. She stands at an average size at 5’11 and has a very slim body. Her arms and legs are rather thin but not to the point where you’d expect her to snap just by walking or being anorexic. The use of her blood based powers just makes her feel slightly ill quite often and gives her this shape of body. Because she tends to soak in blood both in and out of combat, Ashlei
’s skin is of an amazingly soft texture but still retains a healthy colour. Ashlei
’s face is usually described by others as ‘Cute yet devilishly evil’ which is exactly how she acts and perceives herself. Her hair is grow out incredibly long past her waist at the back and usually covers a lot of her eyes if she doesn’t move it out of the way. Her eyes and hair both follow the same colour scheme of a powerful blood red that shines in the sunlight and darkens during the night.Ashlei
will always be seen wearing a dress regardless of the temperature or weather. If it is pouring it down with rain, she will wear a dress. If it is blazing hot in the summer she will wear a dress. This doesn’t mean she will be in a dress constantly though as she goes to bed in lingerie and would obviously wear a swimsuit to the beach. Not that she ever goes to the beach though and it’s not often that she is asleep on her own accord. The dress she is most often seen in resembles a high school students uniform with a dark gray colour with a white shirt with long sleeves and frilled wrists. Her legs wear long black tights and she wears nice black shoes which are sometimes heels depending on her mood. Ashlei
will never wear gloves, a hat, personal human make-up or casual human clothes such as a T-shirt and jeans. She just isn’t that kind of girl. It is usual though to see Ashlei
wearing glasses. Seeing as the girl loves to read, she can be seen walking back from the Library with her glasses on but before she meet’s anyone, she would usually take them off. Their plain and simple glasses made of stock colour metal with glass lenses.Bone Appearance:
The parts of Ashlei
that resemble her hollow side are so easily seen you would fall off a cliff for not noticing them: Sprouting out of her head and out of her back are two pairs of redish wings. The ones on her back tend to be much larger than the ones on her head and give her a speed boost in the air compared to her usual Sonido speed. She can combine the two modes of transport to move at hefty speeds across the world by splitting the wind aerodynamically around her body to create a space where her body resides in the air that has no air inside of it. If she moved at the same speed for long enough, she could make it across the Pacific Ocean in one hour moving at speeds around Mach 5 or 3000Mph. However, this doesn’t mean she would arrive on the other side perfectly fine. She would probably land and crash into a mountain causing serious damage to herself and wouldn't even go that fast unless she moved in a perfectly straight line and constantly used reiatsu. The wings on her head are odd enough as it is. Whenever she is flying, they tend to give off an aerodynamic feel that appears to make her move faster. Whenever she is excited or really pleased, they flap uncontrollably. If she is unhappy, they droop down like dog ears and if she doesn’t want to hear something, she can cover her ears with them like a puppy. This could mean that she isn’t all doom and gloom and has a youthful feel about her.Hollow Hole:Ashlei
's Hollow Hole is not very obvious as she tends to wear a dress all the time. The way that somebody found out about her Hollow hole was when she got punched in the stomach, their hand went right through her dress and she felt nothing. Her Hollow holke is about the size of a fist and resides where her belly button should be. This means she has little to no logical stomach and her body activates all their abilities to keep her blood abilities working and her heart pumping. Hollows certainly are a peculiar being, and Ashlei
isn't different.Reiatsu Colour:
Streams of red energy flow around her body, often crashing into things and when at her full power, causes the reitsu to glow purple slightly with a main red light. These streams are arcs that appear to be attacking her body but missing every time and slamming into things around her. Being too close to these arcs is very dangerous as they can smash into people that do not keep an eye on them.Sealed Zanpakutô:
Ashleis sealed Zanpakutō takes on the form of a Crucifix of which is golden in colour and lined with Rubies. Each tip has a small ruby engraved into either side as well as the middle of which has a much larger ruby. The longest branch of the Crucifix however is replaced by a silver blade with a ruby coloured seem down the middle.
This blade came into Ashleis possession when she was undergoing the final stages of her Ageing seal. Her Zanpakutō had gone missing, and she could not find it, thus gave up searching. One day, she vomited gallons of blood and this new shaped dagger is the end result. This dagger, is her true Zanpakutō and the reformation of her old one within her spirit.Racial Abilities:Custom Made Abilities:
Arrancar racial Abilities:
- Devils Cero Blade: Used as a powerful cutting edge known through the Mischevang Family but only Ashlei recalled how to use it. The edge of the weapon vibrates with chainsaw like cutting creating a bloody mess if hitting skin and can even cut up objects and buildings.
First Use: Simply put, Charge Reitsu used for the Cero into the users one hand. This reitsu then coats their hand like an arrow tip made of their reitsu colour and looking as though their hand was on fire. This is the smallest form of the Cero Blade. Striking someone with this flaming hand will slice through things with ease.
Second Use: After creating the flame, by inputting more reitsu into it, the edge can be created. the fires would sprout further out to form a sword shape that seems to be made to look like the seele schneider but more of a triangle shape from the hand. This simply gives it more range and can extend up to a metre long. If this is done though, two hands need to be used to hold it.
- Diablos Cero Oscuras: Charging the Cero takes some time. After about 2 minutes of constant charge, the users arm flares up and is covered in black bolts of energy that zap back and forth between their hand, shoulder and elbow. After a minute, the user has to hold their arm with the other hand to prevent their elbow from snapping. The remaining 30 seconds is spent pushing the ability further than natural. once exactly two minutes have passed, the ability is ready to fire and to be honest, the user really should get rid of it by then before their hand disintegrates. When fired, the cero zooms off towards a location as normal with no special features except for the gigantic amount of energy zig Zagging around its black structure. Once the cero is close to its target or about to hit something, the tip of it moulds itself into a sort of demonic face that opens its mouth and roars. On impact, an explosion is created with enough size to cover a small village and enough power to destroy chunks of the earth beneath it. it is more than likely everything above the crater that was just made would also be devastated.
- Onido: Sonido is the standard way to move around as an Arrancar. however, the more powerful variation of this learned by only master of Sonido is the Onido. This technique allows an Arrancar to move at an instant speed, faster than Sonido. The only drawback of this technique is how it leaves afterimages of the user giving away their new position but this can also be used to draw targets into traps. Moving at a speed enough to rival even the fastest of characters, Onido is the perfect way to annihilate a target or group of targets within rapid succession that the sonido could not manage.
Secondary Effect: Killing Spree
For instance, an Onido can be used in quick succession in the same way a sonido is but instead of having the 1 second time of using it again with a sonido, the Onido is half of that making it seem as though the user just attacked things without stopping yet actually stopped about 5 times.
Unique Abilities:Claire's Signature: Ashlei
- Bala (虚弾 (バラ), bara; Spanish for "Bullet," Japanese for "Hollow Bullet") Bala is an Arrancar alternative to Cero. The technique hardens the user's Spiritual Pressure and fires it like a bullet. Although it is weaker than a normal Cero, it moves about twenty times faster and can be fired at a much higher rate, but the damage is much the same. Stronger Arrancar can also fire a more powerful Bala, while retaining its twenty-fold speed.
- Bala Railgun: Ashlei charges Bala's into both hands and holds one above the other in the shape of a pistol. She then fires rapid Bala from the same point to increase her usual rate of fire.
- Cero (虚閃 (セロ), sero; Spanish for "Zero," Japanese for "Hollow Flash," "Doom Blast" in the Viz translation) are high-powered energy blasts that can be fired from various body parts, such as mouth, tongue, hand or fingers. Only Gillians, Adjuchas, Arrancar, and the Vizard have so far been shown to use Cero attacks, and it appears that stronger entities can use it more efficiently. Various Arrancar and Hollow characters display variants of the technique, such as the Espada-exclusive Gran Rey Cero, the Cero Oscuras that Ulquiorra Cifer can use only in his released form, as well as the Cero Sincrético performed by Pesche Guatiche and Dondochakka Birstanne.
- Descorrer (解空(デスコレール), Desukorēru; Japanese for "Loosed Void", Spanish for "Drawing Back/Opening"): A technique used by Espada-level Arrancar and sometimes others, to open a Garganta between the living world and Hueco Mundo.
- Garganta (黒腔 (ガルガンタ), garuganta; Spanish for "Throat," Japanese for "Black Cavity") is how Arrancar and Menos-class Hollows move to and from Hueco Mundo. Kaname Tōsen, Kisuke Urahara and Mayuri Kurotsuchi have also demonstrated the ability to use the technique. It literally tears open the dimensional fabric separating the worlds, revealing a tunnel of whirling, torrential energy that must be focused and solidified to create a discernible pathway.
- Garganta Broadcast: a visual broadcast similar to a television screen, created by using individual Garganta portals. Ulquiorra Cifer does this in order to show the current predicament of Orihime Inoue's friends (Ichigo Kurosaki, Tōshirō Hitsugaya and Rangiku Matsumoto) fighting their respective battles. It is unknown if he could create as many as desired, or if three broadcasts are his limit.
- Temporal Garganta Field: Ashlei creates up to 6 Garganta around her that don't remain open for more than ten seconds. She then sonido's through one to appear out of another and so on. This can be used to dodge attacks and attack people unpredictably. She can place the garganta anywhere within her vision within reason. So mountains in the distance are out of the question.
- Hierro (鋼皮 (イエロ), iero; Spanish for "Iron," Japanese for "Steel Skin") refers to the hardened skin of the Arrancar, which is a result of their compressed spiritual power. While their skin is strong enough to block even released Zanpakutō bare-handed, it is by no means impenetrable. Stronger Arrancar generally have proportionally stronger skin than usual.
- Negación (反膜 (ネガシオン), negashion; Spanish for "Negation," Japanese for "Anti-Membrane") are energy fields are used to rescue fellow Hollows. Only the Gillian-class Menos have shown the ability to use it. Negación fields surround a target in a square beam of light that isolates the target from the dimension they are currently in, making it impossible to harm them. The field then pulls the target towards the Menos that created the field. Espada have a special cube-shaped device called Caja Negación (反膜の匪 (カハ・ネガシオン), kaha negashion; Spanish for "Negation Box," Japanese for "Anti-Membrane of Negation") meant to simulate Negación fields, which are used to punish their subordinates if necessary. The cube, when used on a subject, traps them in an alternate dimension from which there is no escape; however, this assumes it is being used as intended. More powerful Arrancar, namely the Espada themselves, can escape given enough time.
- Caja Negación (反膜の匪 (カハ・ネガシオン), kaha negashion; Spanish for "Negation Box," Japanese for "Anti-Membrane of Negation") A tool used by Espadas to punish their subordinates. It traps its subject eternally in a closed dimension. The tool is a small black cube that, when thrusted into an Arrancar Hollow Hole, activates by wrapping the target in an inescapable cage that vanishes with them inside.
- Pesquisa (探査回路 (ペスキサ), pesukisa; Spanish for "Inquiry," Japanese for "Probe Circuit") is the Arrancar equivalent of the Shinigami ability to sense Spiritual Pressure. It functions very similarly to sonar.
Resurrección (帰刃 (レスレクシオン), resurekushion; Spanish for "Resurrection," Japanese for "Returning Blade") Most Arrancar have the ability to seal their power within a Zanpakutō. Upon releasing their Zanpakutō, they gain all of their former unique Hollow abilities back, essentially 'resurrecting' their old selves. When using this ability, they essentially combine their human form and their Hollow form, incidentally increasing their power considerably. As another note, when an Arrancar uses his or her Resurrección, it heals all minor wounds.
- Sonído (響転 (ソニード), sonīdo; Spanish for "Sound," Japanese for "Sound Ceremony") is the Arrancar equivalent of the Shinigami Flash Steps and the Quincy Hirenkyaku; it allows the user to travel at incredibly high speeds for short distances. Use of Sonído is punctuated by a brief static sound, in contrast to the "swish" sound caused by Flash Steps.
has an odd Aura within herself she has no idea about. She has been told about it, but has forgotten long ago. It's actually uses are only to stabilise her mentality when she reaches breaking point.Point Break Speeds:
As stated before in her bone appearance, Ashlei
's wings on her head and back grant her an additional physical advantage over the world around her. By exceeding 1000 miles per hour, Ashlei
envelopes a pocket of null air around herself that does not generate any friction allowing her to blast to top speeds reaching around 3000 miles per hour. However this does not come at a risk, as she cannot use any powers whilst flying and wont notice anything if she hits it. She may also break bones in flight, lose conciousness and generally kill herself if she keeps it up for too long. This makes her a very very fast straight line flyer, but usually used to get around the planet within the day. When she wants to actually slow down, she starts to decelerate and opens a gargatna without an end. Flying through void, she will open the other end when she decelerates to a decent speed and can sort herself out.Blood Type X:
When mixing the blood Ashlei
absorbs from others into her system, she would quickly grow ill and this could even lead to her heart to failing. That in itself is a problem, thus Ashlei
has a peculiar blood type of X that quickly solves this issue. Upon digesting blood into her system, whatever blood type it may be, Ashlei
's biological organisms break down the new blood to use. This also however, causes her body to generate more blood, but of a new type X. In short, Ashlei
drinks blood, the blood is genetically eaten and hacked apart until it is compatible with Blood type X. This does mean though, that her initial digestion may make her feel sick and nauseated but after about 5 seconds, the blood is digested properly and she can use it, feeling normal once more.
Because her blood is of a type no other has, it technically isn't the same. Ashlei
has often described it as 'a red goo' but she likes to call it blood because that is essentially what it looks like. Thus, if anyone tried to manipulate her blood, it's effects would not be anywhere near as pwoerful as if she was using it because it isn't the blood everyone else would be used to manipulating.
Ashleis bloody liquid is very violent and does not accept foreign cells inside of her or even on her for that fact. If she was ever to catch a disease, the bloody liquid will track the cells down and destroy them as long as Ashlei
is still breathing. This is perfectly safe and causes Ashleis body to be capable of even breaking down bits of concrete, wood, cloth, literally anything that goes into her body and remove all traces of it's existence.
This also means because Ashlei
's blood is of a completely different type, it is not classified as blood any other character is capable of controlling with their blood bending abilities. This only applies if they state they can control blood type X. If anybody was able to get a hold of some and attempted to research it, all they would be able to find out from examining it is the fact that it doesn't even react or move like normal red blood cells. The fact that it is sticky, burns, cannot evaporate and does not harden when exposed to oxygen. Due to this fact, taking advantage of Ashleis blood without her help is useless.
This works exactly the same if she ever tried to eat any food that wasn’t a liquid. Take bread for example. Ashlei
’s blood will absorb the bread and turn it into blood. However because it was not liquid it will take longer and worst of all, wont be compatible as it is a bad blood. Ashlei
will then vomit uncontrollably until the entirely of the bad blood is ejected through her mouth. She would then use that vomited bad blood as a weapon.
All of the blood that Ashlei
gains control of will suddenly change properties as well. The blood becomes sticky like glue but burns like boiling tar. When touching the blood, the target can be stuck to it and burned in a torture method that will not always kill them unless they were drowning in it. Ashlei
can also trigger this burn on and off via her Burn ability. The stick however will stay unless she moves the blood herself.Blood for Blood:
If at any point Ashlei
loses blood, she is able to replace the lost blood via the blood she takes in; from the blood she lost (As long as it wasn’t tampered with via special abilities) or even that of the target’s spilt blood. This means Ashlei
isn’t 100% made up of her own blood. Not even she knows how much of her own blood she has pumping through her body anymore.
Ashleis body is constantly being rebuilt. As the human body sheds its skin, gains dandruff and scars, Ashleis instantly rebuilts the lost tissue and destroys the dead ones to keep her looking pure and in top physical condition at all times. For example: If Ashlei
ever fell off a bridge and broke a few limbs, her 'Blood' would navigate her body and reattach the bones, regenerate them back to how they were and destroy any foreign substances that might have been created from the wound.
The regenerative rate of her body is high, but is not insanely massive. However, she can boost her regeneration to insane speeds by consuming the blood of another or drinking her own blood that has been spilled. If she can stream enough blood into her body to replace the blood lost as she is hurt, she can in theory survive in most scenarios that allow her to use her abilities. For example, being crushed by Project Chaos underfoot with his gears grinding would cause anyone to come out the other end in a red mush. Ashlei
however, as long as she cycles blood through her body, can regenerate fast enough to make it out to other end badly injured. However, this can easily be recovered by replacing more blood.Bloody Frenzy: Ashlei
has always been known as the vampire queen and she has also been known to have a magnetic pull towards blood. Not literally, but when she see's it she can't help but feel excited. This to an extent also reflects in her combat. If a lot of blood appears on the battle field, she will suddenly grow incredibly violent and perform many more crazy techniques. This is why she tends to fight with small amounts to start off with to gauge ability, then will go insane nearer the end to obliterate her foolish opposition.Blood Funnel: Ashlei
's ability to drink the blood around her is rather peculiar. By manipulation the blood into the air, Ashlei
opens her mouth and sucks. All the blood around her is dragged into her mouth for her to drink in one long stream of regeneration and adrenaline rushing blood. Similar to how a vacuum sucks things into it, Ashlei
can drag all the blood in the area to her as long as it is out of the body and within a mile of her.Blood Mastery
's blood resonates a peculiar sort of ability when she has it within and outside of her body. Ashlei
is 100% immune to blood type X so her attacks will never injure her, but will pass through her like a ghostly visage of an attack but still hit her targets. She can always choose for the blood to hit herself or land on her body. However this is not the property that makes Ashlei
feared in the midst of massive conflict. Ashlei
's blood resonates with her body and doesn't use reiatsu to attack. Sometimes it can, and this is where it gets hectic. By infusing an attack of blood with her reiatsu, Ashlei
can wrap the blood around in incoming attack and strangle it to cause it to implode on itself. For example, a cero would be forced to crush into itself and detonate there instead of at her.
The other points of this nullify ability, is if Ashlei
coats her target in blood she can halt any abilities being used by the limb that is covered. Washing it off is simple enough but it is tar-like and burns like hell. This means getting blood on your fingers can stop you from firing abilities that require finger movements. In the end Ashlei
would attempt to suffocate her entire target in blood to stop any reiatsu based attacks. Anything else that requires 0% reiatsu to use will still be available to them, but those that rely on their energy will find it very hard to escape this. Ashlei
's internal Nullify capability is almost doubled to her external output. Abilities that effect her insides biologically are almost completely broken down and destroyed not as a reitsu based nullification, but as an attack. her blood gathers around the source and literally destroys it via intense body heat and breaking down of particles. She then uses that very broken down substance to fuel more blood. She would end up vomiting this bad blood.Blood burning Properties:
Ashleis blood is a very unstable goo that eats away foreign cells. This means, that after leaving her body, Ashlei
can splash something with her blood and it would slowly start destroying whatever it covered. The rate of complete destruction varies as seen below. The following takes into considering that the target is completely soaked in blood:Foreign Cells inside Ashlei:
0.25 secondsCells of another person:
10 MinutesCells of a small mammal:
5 MinutesA slab of Concrete:
1 dayA sheet of steel:
1.2 DaysA tree:
2 HoursA car:
leaves the area, say around 2 miles away, the blood automatically loses its properties and becomes a red goo that cannot be used with no benefits other than it being a red tinted puddle of water. This stops the endless destruction of cells if Ashlei
ever accidentally left some behind. Vaporate Null:
The final trait of the Blood Type X is how it will never ever evaporate under any circumstance, nor will it ever solidify. This means The blood is 100% liquid with no gaseous propertyies or any solid particles. Trying to freeze will not cause it to harden into ice and burning it will not cause it to evaporate. This is wise to keep in mind as Ashlei
tricks ice and fire users into believing they would beat her easily before she reveals their temperature changing abilities are useless.Forsaken Bloods Will: Ashlei
has maximum control over the blood she finds on the battlefield in the form of physical body movements giving the blood a ghostly visage of movement like fog floating through the air. It works very similarly to telekinesis through gestures. She can then rearrange their position and speeds so they take shapes such as Spears, chairs, Armour and one time she even made a car. In a way, Ashlei
can cause things to become possible with blood as long as she focuses enough on it. If it can be shaped and can be moved, she can make it. The catalogue therefore is endless.
There are even times where the wind blowing Ashleis hair can cause blood around her to move because technically she is giving a passive gesture of movement. The more dominant mode of movement will be seen through what she focuses her reiatsu in. Because of how her powers keep to fair regulations she cannot control the blood that is not outside of the body. Any blood encased within skin and within the body itself cannot be tampered with but this does not include an open wound. if a cut was made on the target and blood can be visibly seen, Ashlei
can use the blood she sees on their skin and wound, but not that blood deeper within their system. This means that she is able to cause blood she is close to, to mould and shape itself at her disposal and move it around in a way that she wishes without touching it like a sort of telekinesis. She can form them into shapes and even weak variations of weaponry without having to touch it. Seeing as it is blood though, it is still in a liquid state so it will only ever cause a splash effect rather than piercing. Bloody Toll: Ashlei
cannot use these abilities without some sort of drawback. Well the issues Ashlei
has to face on a daily basis are as follows. She can however drink blood to solve the issues but they don't always last very long.:
Internal organ Explanation:
- Nausea: Almost constant, Ashlei feels like she could throw up even when she heads to sleep, has a drink or gets a little excited. Most of the time she ignores it.
- 18 hour sleep: Ashlei cannot stay awake for longer than 6 hours before she has to have a very long sleep to make up for her body. If she is woken up part way through her sleep, she will most likely fall asleep again.
- Fainting: Ashlei is very vulnerable to suddenly blacking out and collapsing for an hour. This doesn't tend to occur in battle as her blood is moving faster when she is excited. However, when simply wandering, it isn't a surprise if she suddenly faints.
From what it seems, Ashleis body does not work the same way as other peoples. She cannot eat normally and tends to sleep through most of the day. So, why is she still alive if she cannot respire? This is by taking advantage of the Hollow body she has. Hollows have a mixed up organic system which defies the laws of physics and Ashlei
is no exception. Her generic structure wouldn't be possible if she was not an Arrancar nor if she didn't have blood alchemical abilities. By taking the hollow body a step further than it already is, she can survive in what seems like an impossible state as though she never had a stomach, intestines, liver or anything in her body. Her blood takes the sugars, nutrients and other things from other people and other living things to keep her alive. if this is not enough, the liquid mixture within her body recycles the content without ever needing to respire. Because her Blood Type X hunts down foreign material, anything harmful to her is destroyed (so yes she never needs to go to the bathroom) and what is destroyed becomes more nutrient filled blood for her to live off of. Because of this, she has a similar craving for blood that normal people do for food.Skill Rundown:General Overview: Ashlei
is that character that you don't want to fight alone. She is very good at keeping herself alive and dealing just as much damage back. She does have some weaknesses such as the fact that she is very easy to shatter, but very hard to keep down. Quite often, it is difficult to tell if you have been doing any damage to her at all, but after a long winded battle she will eventually run out of gas as her body begins to fail, she starts to faint and her abilities become slower due to fatigue. However, her intense speed and damage output hardly let such a case occur. if your'e not dead in a few minutes then you're obviously doing something right.WIllpower: Ashlei
's general willpower has been slowly diminishing as her mind is becoming more and more twisted. Ashlei
has shown that she can occasionally loose all control of her mind and what she thinks up. This has even managed to injure her before as her mind sent herself into a coma because she couldn't fight her own fears. Ashlei
can certainly gain a lot of determination, but when it comes to standing up to herself, she comes across as very feeble.Mental Deduction: Ashlei
is bloody smart. She can solve problems faster than most people can and often sums up a scenario within a few seconds of it occurring. This is why Ashlei
is still the leader of the Espada regardless of the countless number of times she's had mental breakdowns. She knows how to handle a fight, she knows what buttons do what in your machines and she knows why your parents keep the cookie jar locked away.Pain Endurance: Ashlei
cannot feel pain. In fact, it's not that she cannot feel it but because she chooses not to. Ashlei
can literally allow herself to feel pain by conjuring the will to be hurt in her mind. She can however do this in reverse where she can choose to not feel a thing regardless of how powerful the attack was. This means she could end up walking away from a fight with completely shattered bones but not noticing because she chooses not to feel it.Focus:
Ashleis focus is pretty decent as she can often slice people to shreds in the exact locations she wants to. She is also known to be able to read hundreds of books and memorize them all without interruption even though half the time there are sounds blaring all around her. She has also shown the ability to make pinpoint strikes on distant targets with her blood alchemy, and to also concentrate on her alchemy without distraction.Durability: Ashlei
isn't exactly the hardest nut to crack. if she gets injured she will bleed as her Hierro is not that good. However, this is to induce the blood to come out of her body in case she needs to slaughter her foes that try to cut her up. She will gladly lose a few body parts if it means she can murder more.General Speed: Ashlei
is fast. She may not be the fastest, but she can move like a jet in straight lines, but also shows a very masterful ability to Sonido and Onido around the battlefield in the blink of an eye.Strength:
This is probably where Ashlei
tends to fall flat. Ashlei
's punches are not what makes her strong and she knows that. However, she also knows that if she adds blood alchemy to her punches, her power become brutal. However, if she relies purely on physical strength then she will lose the fight. Quite often she loses the ability to walk when shes tired or weakened.Weapon Skill: Ashlei
is not exactly the most talented when it comes to swinging a sword but that is because she doesn't give a crap about them. She prefers the 'run in and slash away with blood alchemy' method of doing things. If she tries to fight with her sword, she is probably looking down on your power. However, get her using her alchemy and she suddenly becomes a bat out of hell.Perquisa: Ashlei
has not been too fond of the ability to predict the future. She likes to be able to tackle whatever is coming without any prior knowledge of the attack. However, when it comes down to it she will use the ability to detect those nearby.Ashlei
also has a unique ability similar to Perquisa where she is able to detect the locations of fellow Mischevang sisters through a feeling she gets in her chest. When she gets closer to her family, the feeling intensifies as though her heart grows warm. This is how she managed to find the ones with her today.Sonido: Ashlei
has taken sonido to a new level, allowing her to perform the powerful 'Onido' which leaves an after-image of her movement but moves at incredibly speeds. Ashlei
likes to exclaim that she is fast but others are still faster than her. Still, her speed is what keeps her from taking too much damage all at once.Cero/bala: Ashlei
's cero are not the most amazing thing to ever be fired across the battlefield but it is still a threat nonetheless. Ashleis Cero Oscuras, Gran Rey Cero and True Cero Blades make her very powerful, but she will never rely on them to win.Hierro:
Ashleis hierro is not very good and she can easily take a lot of damage if she isn't too careful. The Hierro is present however and she will use it to fend off the attacks of the weaker people.Regeneration:
Ashleis regenerative abilities are what make her so feared. She can recover from near death to completely full health if she takes in a large sum of blood from her surroundings. This is what makes her so powerful as she lacks a lot of the massive war shattering abilities that others of her level have. She makes up for this by being ridiculously difficult to kill and excels at 1v1 fighting where she does not need to worry about taking over large areas or wiping out many people.
