    There are 'Pluses', which are the spirits of the recently deceased. They look like regular people for the most part - except they have broken chains hanging out from their chests. Those broken chains are what used to link their spirits to their bodies. VERY rarely, you may see people whose bodies are still connected to their spirits by that chain. It is usually in their best interest that they return as soon as possible. They pretty much cannot affect the physical world most of the time and are thus harmless. They're also bound to Earth for a number of reasons - if you can find such reasons and resolve them, they'll move on.

    There are Shinigami. These are spirits clad in black carrying swords. Their job is to bring Pluses to the afterlife, and fight Hollows - more on that in a bit. Their role is largely benefic and they can often be trusted, by and large - they belong to an organization in the afterlife. As you can imagine, there are Shinigami who don't belong to said organization or have their own agendas. They're not visually distinguishable from their 'nice' counterparts; you'd have to use your best judgement. Think of them as otherworldly policemen. Unlike Pluses, they are capable of affecting the physical world at will. They are Pluses themselves, but more powerful ones, and they also have no chains.

    Then there are Hollows. These you'll recognize right away. They're masked monsters with large holes in their chests. They feast on human souls. Rarely attack living humans, but they will do so if said human looks tasty enough - by which I mean whether they are strong enough spiritually. Unfortunately, a lot of citizens in this town fit that description. Yourself included. They used to be Pluses - hanging around Earth too long causes their souls to degrade until they change. They'll typically attack former loved ones first, then anyone that looks like a good snack, and in case you didn't get the hint by now, they're EXTREMELY dangerous.

    Some of the older kinds of Hollows eventually change to human form. I don't know exactly how it happens, but they typically have a gaping hole somewhere in their bodies too, as well as broken pieces of mask that look made out of bone. They're also extremely unpredictable - unlike regular Hollows, they don't need to feed, so what they want is typically anybody's guess. Be VERY wary if one of them chooses to approach you - by and large there's no reason to trust them, even if they don't want to eat you.

    This concludes Spirit Identification 101. Questions?"

    "This unit's highest priority function is the annihilation of the Quincy."

    It pauses. If its face was visible, the assembled group would be able to see it blink in confusion.

    "Error. Running diagnostic. Initial diagnostic complete. Multiple sections of corrupted coding detected. Repair protocol currently non-viable. Preparing to isolate corrupted code. Error. Internal interference detected. Native soul is interfering. Error. Native soul does not exist. Error."

    The AI's voice fades in an out of the monotone it has previously exhibited as it becomes increasingly confused.

    Alice gives Shinji and Chuck both a confused look, seemingly expecting another reaction from the young Mortals. As Alpha-1 speaks, the Shinigami turns her gaze to Naito's body with a concerned look.

    "I sincerely hope I am wrong, but I suspect the creators of this soul intended a weapon, but created an autonomous soul regardless. Even the most unethical of my colleagues tend to avoid that, at the very least for the sake of efficiency. Would you permit me to attempt separating them from the body before either soul takes damage?"

    The question is directed at Shinji and Chuck, the tone clearly indicating that Alice does not see Alpha-1's errors as a good sign for either that soul or Naito's.

But they seldom recover their memories, and I've never heard of a Plus coming back to the world of the living after that..." This was most definitely a puzzle. Yes, there was a possibility, but...

    If she was asked that question - being positive that it was her mother - weeks ago, then Miya would have angrily responded "of course!". However, now...

    Miya intakes a deep breath: it's the first time she's admitting these doubts aloud. "I don't...I don't really know," she says, looking down into her tea. "It has to be, right? Who else could it be?"

    She looks up at Sensei Hasunaga, and continues. "She looks the same, she has the same voice, she knows all the little things only my mother would know," she starts, "but there's little things here and there that don't make sense. My - Hikari, she evades all my questions, and tells me to keep all sorts of secrets, and sometimes there's little strange things that don't add up."

    "Which, I guess, could be reasoned away because she kept so many secrets from me while my mother was alive, but..."
    Miya swallows, and then explains in a big, long, breathless sentence why she thought going to Hueco Mundo would give answers. "...and so when I ran into that man this morning, I thought I could find out what had happened and if anyone there would know, because I sometimes overheard Hinata and Naito and Natsuki and other people in class talking about the ghosts and the Hollows, and so I thought that maybe she had gone there after she died and then..."

    She's out of breath, and can't continue without breathing again.

    Katsuo is looking mighty confused. So that may answer Chuck's question. He looks to his friends as best he can with a quizzical look.

    "...uh, what? Is she... some kind of robot? I don't understand..."

    He has to hide the slight annoyance. It was bad enough with Hollows and Shinigami and Arrancar...

    She's out of breath, and can't continue without breathing again.
    "Take it slowly. Calm down. Collect your thoughts." Hasunaga asks of his student before sipping some tea himself. He seems more collected now.

    "Doesn't sound to me like Hikari would have reason to go to Hueco Mundo. It's a dangerous place even for Hollows themselves, and she probably knows that. If she can reason as a human being, whether as a Hollow or not, then she probably has reason to stay here. The fact she hasn't attacked you also speaks in her favor about this." At this point, he's reasoning aloud. And in the back of his mind, he is kind of wondering why she hasn't chosen to talk to him...

    "Well, as a general rule those with certain levels of ability to see spirits may or may not develop special powers. There's actually a lot of mediums out there who can't see or hear spirits clearly. Some charlatans make use of that fact to fool people.

    In any case, spiritual sensitivity can either increase with time or not at all. This town is particularly strong in supernatural activity, so the chances hinge a little more on the former than the latter. No one knows for sure why.

    How do you feel about the subject, by the by?"

    Hasunaga grumbles to himself. "Of course you do, why should it be any different..."

    He sighs.

    "Aside from the Shinigami themselves, there are a number of organizations that already work said field. They're typically secret, don't take members outside of their families, and all of those who DO belong have some means of fighting off spirits themselves. They live short, brutal, taxing lives and are never recognized for their work outside of their peers.

    Do you understand what I'm driving at, Torahiko-kun?"

    As he speaks, Shinji expands his barrier. Now it includes Alice, Chuck and himself. He attempts to make it more solid, more capable of containing them all.

    "Chuck... don't suppose you have any form of spiritual tranquilizers on you?"
    Alice nods.

    "It's unlikely that I will be able to differentiate, yes. It has little risk of causing harm unless the chain is severed or the soul consumed by Hollow. However, I have no prior data on a situation like this, not even from prior disruptions of Mortal experimentation on souls, so the uncertainty is indeed higher."

    Gesturing demonstratively at Alpha-1, the Shinigami continues in a more cautionary tone.

    "The confusion and disruption of this soul's thoughts indicate stress from the relationship, however. Thus I cannot guarantee it will leave either soul unharmed, particularly if there is a Hollow presence in the same body."

    Finishing the explanation, the Shinigami scientist raises a hand to indicate an inspoken "but". Slightly more cheerfully, Alice adds:

    "I am however capable of providing means of tranquilising both Mortal and spiritual beings. Safest would be through Kido, though I can provide sedatives as well."

    Alpha-1 has remained mostly compliant during the process, periodically twitching but making no attempts to escape Katsuo's grip. While the others talk, however, Katsuo can just barely hear the AI say something.

    "Disabling all unnecessary mental processes."

    From one palm, a single line of runes flows to the ground. A runed circle of light appears in a large area surrounding Alpha-1, with four large crosses raising from its perimeter.

    "Kirchenlied: Pferrer Zwinger."

    Everyone present has just enough time to get out of the affected area before the effect begins. Once it does, a massive surge of light and energy erupts like a pillar from the ground, blasting away at anyone inside. There are two effects of the spell: the first tears away at the body like a burning hot power sander, and the second forces them away from the center of the circle, where Alpha-1 stands. Even Katsuo is going to have an extremely difficult time remaining inside.

    Chuck shook his head at the suggestion of punching souls out of the body.

    "Yeah, I'm with Shinji. Trying to push out one or more souls is far too dangerous. We need to sedate her; maybe then we can, I don't know, reason with the AI or something."

    He turned to Shinji, sighing as he shook his head.

    "I don't know any tranquilizing effects. I'm a Hunter, not a Medic or whatnot. I think Shinigami Kido is the way to-"

    He hadn't noticed the chanting, but he'd just barely caught the flow of runes along the ground. And when the crosses started to raise up, he grabbed Shinji (again) and made a run for it, again. He shouted only one word; it wasn't entirely accurate, but it got the point across enough to get people moving, he hoped.

    "GRENADE!!!"

    And there he went, off in another Hirenkyaku blitz. He'd had enough warning that the effects of the spell were mostly minimized, but it wasn't exactly comfortable. And of course, any of Shinji's spellwork would be disrupted.

    Shinji had been focused enough on his spell that Chuck's motions are the only thing that had saved his life.

    "*cough* Thanks, Chuck."

    Shinji's mind worked feverishly to try and see a way out of this situation. They couldn't overpower Alpha with sheer strength alone. Her ability was beyond their capacity to safely handle.

    It would be much easier if this were an actual enemy, but...

    "I'm gonna try to neutralize her Reishi manipulation. I'm gonna need time. And she's going to focus either on you or the Shinigami lady. If you've got something you can use to cause a distraction, now's the best time."

    He whispered to his friend as he got back on his feet; Shinji's power was not essentially too different from a Quincy's, but it was more difficult to use. If he wanted to get this right, he'd need a perfect shot.

    He threw two ofuda up in the air, which briefly shone before they materialized into a pair of oni. One had a golden body, while the other possessed greyish-green skin.

    "Kin-ki! Fuu-ki!"

    Good thing he doesn't expect anyone here to know their Japanese History.

    The golden oni immediately charged to tackle Alpha-1, while the greenish oni seemed to focus his energy on something else...

    I met a girl with a really pensive look. I walk up to her, put a fifty cent coin in her hand, "For your thoughts. I know the going rate is supposed to be one, but I figure you play hardball."

    She gave it back, "Keep it. Pretty sure a guy with your charm can find a way to have them for free anyway."

    Indeed, Katsuo is caught enough off-guard that the spell gives a good push against his grip. The pain is another thing. Even with his highly durable skin, the energy begins to cut through his own reiatsu field, the skin turning red like a slow-motion road-rash. But still, he manages a single hand on A-1, and with the final moments of his grip, he does a last-ditch toss, throwing her towards the rocks of the quarry before he's fully pushed back.

    Alpha-1 flies through the air as Katsuo hurls it, agilely flipping around in mid-flight in order to land in a three-point stance. The loose stones of the quarry slide beneath its feet, but it manages to remain upright. Kin-ki charges at Alpha-1, but the weapon simply slides agilely past it, producing two more knives in the course of an instant and trying to slice it apart. To the AI's displeasure, however, the knives simply shatter against the Oni's impenetrable body. Adjusting tactics immediately, Alpha-1 slices one of its fingers off and tosses the severed digit at Kin-Ki before holding an outstretched hand at it. The blood flowing from the finger begins glowing.

    "Gritz."

    A hardened cocoon surrounds Kin-Ki. Alpha-1, meanwhile, turns to face the group, the missing finger regenerating before their eyes. While Kin-Ki is dealt with, for the moment, its interference cost Alpha-1 another chance to escape.

    The coccoon proves less than effective as Fuu-ki disperses a gale in its direction, which helps keep the golden oni free, though they are unable to do more than aid each other in this instance.

    In the meantime, Shinji is moving about... erratically. It's hard to tell what his intention is.

    But he does seem to be moving faster.

    "Unpleasant how?" Torahiko remains as inquisitive as before, if less enamored with the idea of spirits.

    Alice notices Alpha-1's attack rather late, but is still able to leap free from the effect before being noticeably affected. Landing, the Shinigami raises a hand to her ear and rattles off a quick order, evidently through some sort of transmitter.

    "Tranq darts only, don't fire unless target escapes our area."

    As Shinji's oni attack, Alice nods at Shinji, affirming that she heard the plan.

    "A distraction should be easy"

    Leaping, the Shinigami scientist begins moving toward Alpha-1 in an arch, seemingly trying to cut off the artificial soul's escape. En route, The soul reaper sends a simple binding kido towards Alpha-1. The glowing strands are easy to avoid, but not enough to not take up attention.
