~Quincy~



Quincy are spiritually aware humans able to absorb and manipulate Reiryoku into weapons. Unlike the Shinigami who use a sword as their primary weapon, the Quincy's weapon of choice is a bow or a crossbow.Quincy primarily absorb spiritual energy from the atmosphere and combine it with his or her own spiritual energy to form weapons.They have an easier time collecting this energy in environments with higher concentrations of spiritual particles such as in Soul Society or Hueco Mundo. To a sufficiently powerful Quincy, there is no difference between spiritual particles and spiritual energy as a source of power. They can manipulate spiritual energy for offensive purposes. A Quincy most commonly reshapes spiritual particles into various types of bow and arrows but can also concentrate spiritual energy into the form of swords, Seele Schneider, or Gintō. All the Quincy have the ability to create a unique spirit bow and subsequently generate spirit arrows for the bow by using a Quincy cross or pentacle. The bow and arrows are made up completely of Reiryoku from the user's surroundings and last as long as the wielder's stamina and Reiryoku reserves allow. As a spiritual being, the Quincy can sense Hollows and other spiritual beings at a significant distance or tell in what direction they are in.Quincies come in different varieties,some prefer to remain on their own,rogue,others join Crossing Arrows ( called Kreuzung Pfeile among Quincies themselves).
Quincies travel a slow road in discovering their abilities.Usually,a child showing at least some ability in using spiritual particles is discovered by already learned Quincy,becoming their apprentice.The learning process usually lasts around twelve years before you're considered to be fully learned in you powers.
Quincy wear white, form-fitting, high-collared tunics that bear some resemblance both to Mandarin Chinese dress and to cassocks of Catholic priests.One peculiar recurring motif of Quincy is that of a cross, which appears frequently on their uniforms and artifacts and differs in shape among the Quincy.
~History~
The Quincy were scattered all over the world at one time. They were relatives of magic hunters who came to be specialized in the war against Hollows.A very large percentage of Quincy were destroyed by the Shinigami over three hundred years ago in order to prevent the destruction of the world.Shinigami govern the souls between the Human World and Soul Society, which maintains a balance that if not kept would result in the mutual destruction of both worlds. All souls, including Hollows, are subject to the Shinigami governance of maintaining the balance. Quincy completely extinguish Hollows. Thus the souls that come to the Human World do not return to Soul Society and therefore the souls would increase only on the side of the Human World. Meaning, the Human World becomes heavy in souls causing Soul Society to spill over into it; mixing life and death. The ultimate result would be the end of the world. Since the origin of the Quincy, many years passed with Soul Society trying to appeal to the Quincy that the handling of Hollows should be left to the Shinigami. The Quincy refused to accept the situation. As time went on, the number of Quincy increased and the cycle of souls became more unstable, forcing the Shinigami to reluctantly wipe out the Quincy in order to maintain the balance of the world.The Quincy line was closely monitored over the decades, as their numbers continued to dwindle. Later the Quincy advanced the idea that since they were already among the living they could act as "first responders" to Hollow attacks; protecting humans until Shinigami could send a representative to finish the Hollow off. Embittered by the recent war, the Shinigami refused to participate, opting instead to allocate their limited resources to reacting to the most dangerous Hollows and current Hollow attacks.Recently,Quincies have climbed back from brink of extinction and banded together into a group ruled by Council of elders,called Crossing Arrows or Kreuzung Pfeile.They have also created alliance with Fullbring humans and their organization,Xcution.
~Quincy Abilities and Items~
Archery is the most used form of combat among the Quincy. Since they're still human, maintaining a distance from highly dangerous Hollows as well as launching numerous attacks on multiple opponents gives them a great advantage offensively and defensively.
Hirenkyaku is a Quincy version of flash step.To perform the technique, the user gathers spiritual particles under their feet and rides them to the desired location.Like the air-walking skill displayed by most Arrancar and Shinigami, it can also be used to hover or fly for long distances.
Ginto are small silver cylinder capsules that store spiritual energy in a liquid form and are used by the Quincy for spell-casting in the same way that Shinigami use Kidō. After the Quincy utters the incantation and activates the tube (usually by pouring energy into it and throwing it, although this is not always the case), the spell will activate and perform it's task. Unlike kido, ginto isn't numbered by strength, nor is there a full list of available spells. Ginto is more or less custom to the Quincy.
-Ginto Techniques-
Heizen-This technique creates a transparent, rectangular beam of energy from the silver tubes which slices through the opponent. It is activated by the command: "Feel the wrath of battle and accept this sacred chalice - Sacred Bite!"
Gritz-This technique forms a man-sized pentagonal Quincy cross which envelops its target. It is activated by the command: "A silver rod strikes the five-fingered stone bed - Quintuple Restraining Frames!"
Wolke-This technique uses a silver tube to create a large blast.It can also be used to cushion the impact of a fall. It is activated by the command: "Tilt the goblet to the west - Emerald Grail!"
Sprenger-This technique uses five Seele Schneiders to create a pentagon-shaped seal which, when activated, causes a massive explosion within its borders. When an object or a person stands within the middle of the Pentagon the placement of the fifth Seele Schneider can trap them by wrapping and binding their legs to the ground with dense spirit particles. The Seele Schneiders function as accumulators, gathering the necessary amount of spirit particles to create the explosion. The liquid inside a silver tube acts as the trigger. The preparations for the technique combined with the charging time for the Seele Schneiders make its use in battle impractical unless the user has a partner that can stall to buy time, or has enough strength to create the formation while under attack.

Ransotengai is an incredibly rare,high level technique that allows the user to control their body parts using strings of spirit energy controlled by their brain, forming lines or strings out of countless spiritrons. By using this technique, the user can control their body as one would a puppet, allowing them to move freely despite paralysis, broken limbs, or any other force that would impede normal movement. It was originally created to allow elderly Quincy to fight effectively.
Hollow bait:This item is a small, coin-shaped disk that attracts Hollows when crushed.
Quincy Bangle is an artifact designed to mimic a Quincy's natural powers. It works by drawing in spirit particles from the environment, much like a Quincy does regularly. It can only be used properly by those who are already adept at forming and directing spirit particles,such Quincy that lost their powers,and can be used by them to create fascimilie of their old bow,although not as powerful. If overused, the Quincy bangle will overheat and shatter.
Mekkyaku or Quincy Cross is the pinnacle of Quincies powers and abilities. For the most part, Quincy crosses are uniquely shaped, and although named a "cross", they do not always have to be in such a form. Common examples of a Quincy cross taking a typical form is the Christian cross and Celtic Cross. Common examples of them not taking the standard form is a Pentacle or other Star-shaped variant. Wrapped around the wrist for the most part, the cross is where the true ability of the Quincy come into play. When activated, a Bow or similar long range weapon will be formed from the reishi in the air around the Quincy. The Quincy is then capable of using this bow in order to fire arrows, also made of spiritual particles, at their opponent for devastating damage. Although it does not mean as much as a zanpakuto's name, Mekkyaku normally also have a name, to help personalize the Quincy with their weapon.
Sanrei Glove is a powerful Quincy artifact.When a Quincy has reached critical point in power they can train with Sanrei glove to increase their power exponentially by wearing glove for a whole week while constantly and continuously firing spiritual arrows without stopping.The glove works by scattering the spirit particles in the surrounding area, making it much harder to form a working bow. If a Quincy can summon a bow and use it for the required amount of time, they will have undergone a massive increase in power. When removed, however, the glove will release the user's energy all at once - first transforming them into a being of tremendous strength, the Quincy: Letzt Stil.
Letzt Stil,also known as Quincy Final Form.By removing the artificial repulsion to spiritual energy that the glove placed on them, the Quincy will experience an abrupt increase in power as their reishi gathering abilities (which were greatly increased during the Sanrei Glove training) absorb huge amounts of energy, along with a change in appearance. The Quincy gains a more battle-ready form of the standard Quincy attire, with the Sanrei Glove's bow separating from itself and remaining in the users hand, and what appears to be armor covering their left side and arm.A blue, flame-like object resembling a quiver of pure reiryoku forms on the Quincy's right shoulder. It collects large amounts of reiryoku, reiatsu and reishi from its surroundings, in essence storing "arrows" or the energy for them. Any arrows formed from this energy appear noticeably solid, at least when unfired, rather than just the standard bolts of energy.While in this form, the Quincy will absorb energy from their surroundings at such an alarming rate that they can actually deconstruct spiritual objects.Although the power of Quincy skyrockets greatly it lasts for short period of time and after final form is used Quincy lose access to their abilities for an amount of time.
Seele Shneider is similar to a ginto tube in appearance when not activated and is arguably the most dangerous weapon in the Quincy arsenal. After activation, a blade forms and juts out from the tip of the Seele Shneider, which vibrates at insanely high speeds and frequencies. It is not intended to merely cut, however. When used, it loosens the bonds between spiritual particles in spiritual matter, allowing for the Quincy to absorb reishi easier. It has also been stated to increase spiritual power when used and it's other ability is to collect reishi during combat by absorbing the opponent's attacks. The more spiritual pressure and energy they release, the more powerful the Quincy wielding it becomes.Despite appearing to look like a sword, the Seele Shneider's true potential is only revealed when it is used as an arrow, allowing it to pierce damn near anything.

~Things to know~
Quincy can gain Final Form upon reaching level 30.At this time you can create a training thread,detailing your character training with Sanrei Glove for a week.Go into detail and be descriptive,show what your character is going through physically and emotionally.Once Final Form is achieved,a Quincy can use it by removing Sanrei Glove.However,after Final Form is used the Quincy will lose access to their abilities for short period of time,around a week,while their body rests and recharges so to speak and will need to wear Sanrei Glove once more and retrain with it before they can attempt using Final Form again.Quincy Bangle can be used to compensate for their one week without abilities.In Final Form you receive six more technique slots.
Description of Final Form and it's current abilities and techniques should be explained in application and approved by moderator before it's used in rp.
