    Aléjandro Mendez: Former Septima Espada (Deceased)


    Cero Colour: Indigo.
    Aspect of Death: Self-doubt.
    Fracción: Baudelio Abasolo, Carlos Abasolo (deceased), Kinezumi "Kine" Aritza

    Physical Description
    Aléjandro is of relatively average build, but is leanly muscled. His most striking feature is his hollow mask, which still covers the entirety of his face. His hair is dark and shoulder-length, but his eyes cannot be seen from under his mask. He keeps his Espada uniform perfectly maintained. His number tattoo is not visible anywhere on his body - in truth, it is located on his face, underneath his mask. His hole is located on the right hand side of his chest. He wears his sword on his right hip, and is left handed.

    First and foremost, Aléjandro is a thinker. He spends much of his time in the library of Las Noches, reading up on Soul Society history provided by the orange-haired master, but more particularly philosophy, both that of living humans and that of Soul Society, and even the rare introspective Arrancar that has come before him. He is calm and contemplative for the most part, and remains so even in battle, wherein he calls into question any number of his opponents beliefs. He seems to derive special pleasure from shaking a shinigami's belief in the justice of what they do.


    Discouraging Draw: Aléjandro has perfected a defensive technique whereby he draws his sword by pushing it out of its scabbard with his right thumb at high speed. He then quickly grabs the hilt so that the blade actually has some force behind it. This essentially allows him to parry with his sword still sheathed.

    Face of Regret: No one knows what Aléjandro's face looks like under mask, not even he. If anyone breaks some or all of his mask off to see his visage, they see the face of their dearest departed loved one - even Aléjandro, who is plagued by a massive number of faces, all the missing loved ones of the souls that form his composite self, if he looks at his face in the mirror. The visage is accompanied by a reiatsu-empowered compulsion, and anyone seeing what lies under Aléjandro's mask will be hard put motivating themselves to harm him.

    Sagazigá, an Ancient Sumerian word that loosely means "to break self-faith". The zanpakutou takes the form of a narrow longsword with an unusually wide guard.

    Resurrección - "Shatter their faith, Sagazigá"
    Outwardly, Aléjandro's appearance changes little. The left (left to onlookers) side of his mask swaps colours - it becomes a black background with white lines. Also, a shallow blade grows backward from his forearms, tapering off to a point just beyond his elbow. Whilst released, his hierro vanishes altogether, but all the reiatsu it would otherwise use goes towards powering:

    Garganta de Los Traidores - Throat of the Traitor
    Aléjandro's body is covered with an invisible, short-range Garganta. Any attack that would hit him is immediately transported behind the person who initiated the attack, effectively making them attack themselves. However, the attack is weakened during the transportation. In this way, Aléjandro inspires doubt in a two-fold manner: "I don't think I can beat this guy" and "Are my attacks actually that weak?".

    Resurrección Segunda Etapa
    Aléjandro holds the hilt of his sword over his hollow hole and utters the release command, which is followed with him being surrounded by a swirling black organic membrane whilst he transforms.

    When the membrane fades, he has changed considerably from his Resurrección form. He appears to have turned inside out, his body covered with black flesh with the distinctive white of Adjuchas armour showing from underneath. The blades on his forearms now lead down to a set of pitch black claws on each hand, which are as deadly as can be expected of a Segunda Etapa, and the entirety of his mask possesses an inverted colour scheme (black with white markings). Aléjandro retains Garganta de Los Traidores in Segunda Etapa, but must lower it momentarily to attack an opponent with his claws. His speed also increases massively in this form. His Segunda Etapa also possesses other abilities:

    Presencia de Traidores Pensamientos – Presence of Traitorous Thoughts
    In this form, Aléjandro emits an aura that takes the strength of an enemy’s doubt and uses it to animate the opponent’s shadow. If their doubt is weak, then the shadow will be little more than a distraction. If the opponent is plagued by self-doubt, then the shadow will be far more dangerous. By using more reiatsu to power this ability, Aléjandro can affect multiple shadows, though they will be weaker than a single animated one. Inexplicably, this aura also destroys any reflective surface within a mile of Aléjandro.

    Máscara del Traidor – Mask of the Betrayer
    Aléjandro removes his mask, showing his true face. He has a Spanish complexion, and wears a beard and moustache the same colour as his hair. His eyes, however, are entirely black.

    He can order his mask to seek out his opponent – and the mask is almost as fast as its owner. If it reaches the designated target, it will attach to their face, and begin siphoning their reiatsu directly to Presencia de Traidores Pensamientos, increasing the effectiveness of the animated shadows.

    Baudelio Abasolo: Fracción to the Septima Espada.

    Affiliation: Toho's Arrancar
    Rank: Fracción to the Septima Espada
    Reiatsu Colour: Dark Red

    Physical Description
    Baudelio is well-built and tall, standing at least a foot taller than his master, and with twice his width at the shoulder. His hair is dark, nearly black, and kept cropped close to his head. His eyes are a stark grey, and his mask fragments consist of a small segment of each side of his jaw, each bearing a mandible.

    Baudelio is taciturn and stubborn. He speaks little to anyone but Aléjandro, and harbours a distrust of Kinezumi's manipulative streak and overly laid-back behaviour. He deeply misses his brother, Carlos, and has a deep desire for revenge on the shinigami who killed him. To keep this possible tactical problem out of the way, Aléjandro usually leaves Baudelio on library desk duty, much to the Fracción's disgruntlement.

    Escarabajo, the Spanish for "beetle". Baudelio's sword takes the shape of a short, blunt-ended blade more like a meat cleaver than a sword. It is kept sheathed in an equally broad scabbard just below the small of his back.

    "A cero, Escrabajo!" - Scratch out! Beetle!
    Upon releasing, Baudelio grows massively (being now about thirty feet wide at the shoulder), resembling nothing so much as this, albeit with a white and black colour scheme rather than purple and gold. His face remain visible under his new form's horn, but now his mask mandibles move as though alive. His already impressive physical strength and toughness also increase dramatically, but his speed drops notably.

    Arenas Movedizas - Quicksand
    Whilst released, Baudelio's reiatsu not only increases, it also increases massively in its density. Those within sixty feet of him will find their speed reduced by about 10%, with relatively weaker enemies finding their speeds dropping even more. To those effected, it feels like trying to move through quicksand.

    Empalar - Impale
    Baudelio charges up a bala in each claw, and then slams them into the ground. A flurry of over-large bala then extend outward from the points of impact in an irregular, but overall straight, line. Those hit by these bala will find themselves flung skyward, in addition to the regular damage.

    Enriquecida Hierro - Spiked Iron
    A large number of iron-hard spikes lie under the carapaces on Baudelio's back. Normally, they remain sub-dermal, but if an opponent approaches form behind, Baudelio can extend the spines at sonido-level speed, impaling anyone too close.
