Akairo Hoshi is the 7th Arrancar inn Las Noches
When Akairo was in his form after sealing most of his powers away, in his unreleased form, Akairo looks to be a young boy in his teens with long violet hair that goes down to frame his face, which looks slightly young and childish, and clear blue eyes. He wears black full body suit that is covered by some orange armor on his chest, with shoulder armor. The chest armor has a violet gem on the right side of it, which is actually where his Hollow hole is located at. He also wears orange finger-less gloves that extend a bit beyond his wrists, and some orange boots. On his forehead, he wears a small golden tiara.
However, upon releasing, he tends to look more older, as even his voice deepens. He grows taller and his hair grows a bit longer, and his face appears to mature a bit, making him appear to be a young man.
Post Seal BreakEdit
After breaking enough of his seal, he regained more of his original form. Now he stands as a young man with long violet hair that goes a bit past his neck and no longer have bangs that frame his face, with his eyes still being clear blue eyes. The gold tiara-like crown that goes around his forehead remained the same still. His clothing underwent some changes as well after the seal had restored him to that form.
Now with a more muscular build, Akairo has his black body suit adjust the same way, but the orange armor around him are different. The armor around his chest now holds three violet crystals, the right part still the largest which he carries the power of his Zanpakuto in, while the other two are smaller ones. The shoulder pads also holds some crystals on them, and have markings added on them as well. His gloves now have a red covering on top of the orange parts, along with his leggings that are more armor like as well. Around his waist, the belt now holds a red garb over it.
Similar to his appearance, his personality also differs from his two forms. In his unreleased form, Akairo tends to be rather child-like and a hothead. He can be nice to others in this form, but will be rather quick-tempered and easily misunderstood as a simple child. If someone ticks him off, he will either throw a fit, or want to fight them and beat them up for makign him angry, most likely the latter. This makes him rather loud and obnoxious.
He's also a bit of a pervert, where he tends to always check out any girls that he sees and rate them on their appearace as well as their clothing. He's very blunt about his opinions and won't hesitate to call a girl 'flat' if he sees a girl with no chest. From that, he developed a perversion for Arrancar girls like Halibel or Mila Rose, due to them having an ample bosom.
However, due to this child-like persona, he is also very protective of anyone that he cares about and will not hesitate to take anyone down that harms them, going as far as to kill them even. This makes him quite ruthless in that manner. This follows even in his released state, if not more ruthless than the last.
In his released form, he tends to be more quiet and serious about things, and caring only to take down an enemy that stands before him. His calm composure is a huge contrast to his unreleased self, making him more dangerous if one were to underestimate him.
Akairo was born in a clan from feudal Japan that served the Sanada clan, under the name Kasai Shiyōnin, meaning fire servant. As a young boy, he was trained by the others to be an honorable samurai and fight for honor of the Sanada name, and from them, the Takeda. He even befriended a young Sanada Yukimura, originally known as Sanada Nobushige.
However, eventually, the Takeda clan gets wiped out by the Oda clan and Kasai is forced to serve them along with the Sanadas. After teh Oda clan fell, the Sanadas with Kasai allied itself with the highest power, the Toyotomi clan, where they found solace.
After the death of Hideyoshi, Yukimura allied himself with the western army, and Kasai followed after him. However, in the great battle of the Osaka castle, where they were greatly outnumbered by the Tokugawa forces. Kasai fell from the blade of the enemy as he slowly watched his friend and master Yukimura recieve a great injury, and then struck down. Kasai engraved the last words Yukimura spoke before dying into his mind, before perishing himself.
"Go on, take my head as your trophy."
As a SoulEdit
After dying, Kasai became a Plus Soul and wandered the land of the rising sun on his own for a long time. He was ashamed of being incapable of protecting his friend and how he had let his honor crumble. From then on, the guilt and anger began to slowly consume him, along with the Chain of Fate. Any other passing by souls or any spiritually aware being that would try to talk to him, would only be turned away, from Kasai not desiring to speak with anyone.
After a long time, the Shinigami finally appearaed before him, but before they could purify him, the Chain of Fate was completely gone, and Kasai transformed into a Hollow before their eyes. His rage and anger that arose from his shame fueled his pwoers and allowed him to kill and devour the Shinigami that came to purify him and send him to Soul Society.
From then on, Kasai was no longer Kasai, but a Hollow.
As a HollowEdit
Due to the destructive nature of a Hollow, Kasai began to devour more and more souls from then on, and even more Shinigami that ever got in its way, not stopping until it consumed enough to fill the void in his heart, which would never go away.
Eventually, his power and his hunger grew, that he felt that human souls were no longer satisfactory. He began to devour other Hollows it met, which was more appeasing for its hunger than huamn souls. And so from then on, he began devouring more and more Hollows. The amount of souls that he began consuming also began to grow from each Hollow.
The souls devoured eventually began to mingle together and soon they overwhelmed Kasai's soul and transformed him into a Menos Grande, and more specifically, a Gillian.
However, despite the collection of souls, Kasai's soul managed to overwhelm all the other souls and become the dominant soul, before he slowly began to feed on the other Gillians again like he did before with other Hollows, and it resulting with him evolving even further, in an Adjuchas. When he transformed into the Adjuchas, he regained his form of conscious and could fully focus a bit more again. From that conscious, Kasai abandoned the name he was given before, believing himself to be unworthy of it, and went on by a new name from then on.
He named himself Akairo Hoshi.
As an AdjuchasEditHis Adjuchas form was that of a red phoenix that roamed the desert of Hueco Mundo, devouring other Hollows to prevent himself from regressing to a Gillian. Many times, he considered allowing himself to be devoued, or just allowing himself to regress to a Gillian, but every time he tried to, he always found himself end up devouring more Hollows and fighting back against any Hollows that attempted to devour him.
Deciding that perhaps he couldn't allow himself to go down without a fight from his honor as a former samurai, Kasai, or rather Akairo, continued to wander about Hueco Mundo. Eventually, deciding that he had enough of existing as a Hollow and deciding that if he wasn't going to regress or be consumed by another, Akairo chose to end his life by shattering his mask.
The mask of his Adjuchas form shattered and from that, he became an Arrancar, rather than being destroyed, much to his dismay. However, by becoming an Arrancar, he had more access to his human emotions and decided to live on as an Arrancar until the day came when he could die as a warrior again. The Zanpakuto he created however held so much of his power, that he wasn't able to look his true age, but rather a young teenage boy, and with an attitude to match.
Since then, he decided to join the Espada in Las Noches.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Adept Spearsman: The primary weapon that Akairo uses in both forms is his spear, so he is rather skill in the art, and is able to use it to attack enemies while keeping his distance. The weapon he carries can be used to block attacks and parry them for his counterattack. Even if he doesn't use the blade, he can make jabs or strikes on the opponent with the rest of the spear.
Highly Perceptive Combatant: Despite how he might look young, or how he acts childish, Akairo is actually very perceptive in combat. He is able to detect an opponent's strengths and weaknesses while battling them, figure out their style of combat from their choice of weapon, and know when an opponent is really holding back their true strength, as shown in Akairo's battle against Deus, where Akairo knew that the Seraphim was holding back a second release.
Master Tactician: As an Arrancar that has lived his entire life surrounded in battle, even as a human, Akairo boasts a great adaptability in battle. He is able to make attacks to help prepare for attacks afterwards or help give him an edge in battle. In his battle with Deus, Akairo managed to make several preparations to gain an advantage over Deus, such as creating flames all around the deset to hide his presence from his eyes, as well as have them be ready for when he would prepare for a finishing move to possibly kill him, had the battle not been cut short.
Enhanced Pesquisa: The Arrancar ability to sense spiritual energy. While any Arrancar can learn it, Akairo possesses impressive skill with it, due to his knowledge of combat from years of his old life. From a single glance at his opponent, Akairo is able to easily determine how powerful his opponent is.
Cero: As an Arrancar, Akairo is capable of firing a Cero from the blade of his spear at the opponent. His Cero's color is violet. After training a bit, Akairo's skill with his Cero has increased, able to generate and fire the Cero even faster than before, nad can now do it from a pointed finger.
- Gran Rey Cero: Akairo has the ability to use an advanced version of a Cero, by mixing his blood to a charging Cero, and create a devastating Cero that can destroy a great deal of Las Noches, so it is recommended of not to be used while under the canopy of Las Noches. Akairo's Gran Rey Cero is colored red.
- Cero Lanzador
|Name||Cero Lanzador [Spanish for "Zero Lancer", Japanese for "Hollow Flash Lance"|
|Range||Mid to Long|
Focusing his spirit energy to the tips of his index and middle fingers extended together on his hand, Akairo fires a condensed beam of energy that flies straight forward with a second beam spiraling around the straight beam, making the attack act like a drill to pierce through targets. The attack holds the power of Akairo's strongest Cero with an increased speed due to its size. It lacks the full destructive qualities of a normal Cero though for its ability to pierce through opponents.
When it comes in contact with an opponent's offensive or defensive techniques, if their stat, or stat average, is equal to or less than Akairo's Sei, then the beam would pierce through their ability. If the attack hits an opponent, it Akairo's Sei is equal to or more than their Rei/Han stat average, the attack will pierce right through them.
Example: If another Cero is fired and clashes with Akairo's Cero Lanzador, and their Sei is the same, Akairo's Cero will pierce right through and hit the target.
If the opponent's Rei/Han stat average is greater than Akairo's Sei, then the Cero will only hurt them, but not pierce through them.
Bala: Akairo is able to fire red Bala blasts of his fists by striking in a punching manner. They are strong enough to shatter boulders.He can even send them through elbows and even kicks now, becoming more powerful as he practices with them.
Hierro: Like all Arrancar, Akairo possesses the natural ability known as Hierro. This allows him to take hits from attacks from others and from striking objects without taking much, if any, damage. He once fell off a tower that was over a hundred feet in the air and didn't really have any indication of being inflicted harm.
Sonído Adept: Akairo is able to use Sonido to maneuver in battle, to catch opponents off guard and strike them before they can react. His skill in it has advanced to be able to take him to farther reaches with a single step.
Descorrer: A technique used by Espada-level Arrancar and sometimes others, to open a Garganta between the living world and Hueco Mundo. Akairo is skilled enough to be able to create one for himself, but usually never uses it.
Fénix Carmesí (深紅フェニックス, Crimson Phoenix): Unlike most Zanpakuto, his doesn't take the form of a sword, but is instead a spear with a golden body and a blade at the top. There's a smaller blade sticking out of the bottom of the main blade.
Tormenta Vórtice LlamaEdit
|Name||Tormenta Vórtice Llama (Flame Vortex Storm)|
|Range||Mid to Long|
|Description||Spinning the spear around in front of him, Akairo can form powerful flames that form a vortex around to envelop and burn the target from within the flaming vortex. Akairo can also fly through the vortex and attack the opponent himself as well.|
The flames continue to emerge and soon take the shape of a flmaing phoenix that lets out a great cry, before it slowly growing smaller and smaller, until it takes the shape of something more humanoid, which is Akairo's released form.
His appearance is greatly different from his previous form, covered completely in crimson red armor all over. The breastplate now has two small blue crystals that shape around the chest, and extended shoulder armor. He also has a red helmet that is the shape of a phoenix head that is the form of his Hollow mask. On his back, he has two large orange colored wings that enable him to fly.
Along with this, his spear also takes a new form of a javelin to battle with, similar to other Arrancars that have a weapon upon releasing. His new weapon is similar to his old spear, except it now has three blades, instead of the two from before, and has another blade at the other end of it.
|Name||Infierno Atómico (Atomic Inferno)|
|Description||Charging his fists with flames, Akairo does a large barrage of punches at high speed, and sends a hundreds of flaming fireballs at the opponent which explode upon contact. Due to that, if the fireballs hit something before reaching the target, they immediately explode.|
Ardiente Ave FénixEdit
|Name||Ardiente Ave Fénix (Blazing Phoenix)|
|Range||Close to Mid|
|Description||Enveloping himself completely in flames, Akairo takes the shape of a large flaming phoenix, similar to when he first releases, and then let's out a phoenix cry before charging the opponent at high speed and incinerate the target, as well as pierce through them.|
His crimson armor is also changed into different forms. He now has a black suit that is over his form and doesn't extend past his elbows, flowing out a little. He bears a red breastplate over his torso and has shoulder pads that extend outwards. He wears red leggings as well, and has a lavender cape has gone to extend from his back in place of his wings. However, he can transform the cape into four wings that extend out by manipulating the reishi that hold the cape from his form. With those wings, Akairo can continue to retain his ability to fight, and still be able to effectively move around smaller areas.He also gains a new weapon. Unlike his previous two forms, which carry a spear and javelin respectively, Akairo now uses a sword, with a curved edge and is longer than usual katanas. The blade itself is long katana that he can use with great skill and swiftness. The handle of the blade has a phoenix motif on it, to represent of his familiarity of being a phoenix that he no longer retains in his new form. The color of the handle is golden.
