River is a slender arrancar. His hair changed from green to a neon color and his hair now runs to his chin. Some of his hair also covers the right side of his face if he doesn't brush it away. His eyes also are a neon color that matches his hair. When he first changed into an arrancar River wears a green cloak, like the one in the picture except it is green. On his left hand River has a black crescent moon tattoo on his palm. River's hollow hole lies in his lower stomach. The remnants of his mask are over his left eye which his covered by his hair. He has two small holes on the bottom of both of his wrists where his vines and crystals come from. River's Espada tattoo is on the bottom of his right wrist right below the holes that his vines and crystals come from. 



When he was human, River and his family were in a horrific car crash. The car seemed to hit something invisible and when River looked for his parents after the crash they were gone. From that day on River began to have nightmares every night about weird shadow-like figures with strange masks trying to eat him. One day when he walked home from school he saw one of the masked figures in an alleyway. River thought he was dreaming but the figure chased after him and tried to eat him but only managed to eat his right arm. Years later River died of suspicious causes and was reborn as a hollow. He was just like any normal hollow, he ate souls to survive until he ascended into an adjuchas. As an adjuchas River resembled a black jaguar where he met his closest companion, Katherine, another adjuchas that resembled a jaguar except that she had wings. Katherine and River shared a strange bond that wasn't normally seen in hollows. It was like love but it wasn't. It was more like their souls were attracted to one another. Katherine told River that if one of them ever died that all they should do is look at the moon of Hueco Mundo to remember each other. Katherine and River were constantly harrassed by other adjuchas until one day they killed Katherine and were about to kill River but he began to run away. As he ran an adjuchas with tentacles grabbed him by his mask and accidently tore off his mask turning him into an arrancar. River used his new found abilities to kill the adjuchas to seek revenge for them killing Katherine.

As an ArrancarEdit

Once River became an Espada he learned that it was Katherine who killed his parents. She had been planning for him to become a hollow since his birth. He still doesn't know why she wants him since she is dead but she has used up the last of her reiatsu to control him so that he can revive her and make her into an arrancar. Now he is on a mission to find a way to resurrect her from the dead. After Laxus defeated the Panther, River regained control of his body. Katherine was supposedly defeated and channelled into a little girl named Willow that River takes care of. As Katherine disappeared she vowed that she could never truly be destroyed. River's appearance also changed after this encounter.  

Willow Edit

Willow was made from Katherine's left over reiatsu along with River's. River treats her like his child. She usually follows behind him on a platform made from roots and wines. She likes to act tough but isn't strong enough to fight anyone. She can make roots and vines like River but she doesn't fight alongside him unless he is defending her. River is very protective over her and won't let anyone hurt her.

Sprout is a plant growing construct ability. On the bottom of River's wrists he can grow different types of plants. From vines with thorns all over it, to roots. The vines and roots are strong as the steel from a zanpakuto and cannot be cut easily. River can use the vines to grab onto something to help him dodge or swing through an area (like Spider-man). The roots can be used to push back enemies or to wrap up his enemies. The ability also allows him to create a grass sword. River can also shoot a vine into the ground and have it come back up through the ground to try and grab his opponents foot/ankle to try and trap them. If a vine catches his opponent it can slowly begin to cover their body and create a small coffin like Gaara from Naruto can make with the sand.
