Vizards:The Masked




A mysterious,tightly knit group hidden in the shadows,that is best description for The Masked. Centuries ago,it was started by equally mysterious man known only as The Maker.Approaching those who have potential to become a Vizard,were changing into one or have already become one he would offer opportunity to the first,guidance and help to the second and a place to belong to all three.The Masked is a loosely organized group,with hierarchy and ranks meaning little,up-keeping a family like atmosphere.A safe haven for all Vizards.It is closely knit,with members helping each other,those older and more experienced giving guidance to those needing it.Whole group gets involved when member undergoes full change,helping during their struggle to defeat inner Hollow and in mastering powers that come from victory over it..or when needed,destroying full Hollow born if the inner fight is lost.Despite being the groups creator and integral for its existence,The Maker doesn't truly rule over it.All important decisions are voted on by all,with Maker more giving suggestions then orders.However,he does hold authority,with his advice and suggestions listened to.

~Location~
The Masked have their base in the Human World,considering it more prudent then having one in Seireitei.A large sprawling Victorian mansion,located on huge piece of property far enough from prying eyes to be hidden and secret but close enough to nearest city for quick access to anything needed.Ancient woods surround the property,hiding it away from sight,being part of it,with mountains standing at mansion's back,mountain river coming down and cutting through the property.There are a number of large,well maintained gardens around the grounds:Summer,Spring,Roses,Wild along with other themes,an observatory,three large pools along with jacuzzi and sauna,atrium and more.Different training grounds are set up to the west,with proper barriers around them to keep damages inside.The whole mansion is breathtaking.Build of red brick,with many large windows,balconies and towers,white decorations molded and arranged tastefully, black roof glistening in the sun.Ivy crawls along walls in places,carpeting them in green.Large hall greets upon entrance,with cherry wood paneled walls,marble staircase lined with rugs running from left and right sides to join in the middle,like an upside down u,leading to second floor.Large chandelier hangs on high ceiling.Hallways go to left,right,and straight,past the staircase and further inside.With it's size,the mansion is divided into West and East wings.Many rooms are housed inside,up kept and well maintained.The kitchen,dining room,guest rooms and infirmary are on ground floor. Library and personal rooms on second.There are also gaming,weapons,meeting,computer, training,science,recreation,entertainment, conference and office rooms,along with labs,living rooms and more.A special room is set up in West tower with equipment monitoring for Hollows in Human World,along with other anomalies.A large conference room for their meetings is set up in East wing,round table and comfortable chairs dominating it. A large garage can be accessed from West wing,many modes of transportation housed inside,from cars to motorcycles,with members private vehicles also parked here.Because of the mansion's size,a speaker system has been installed in every room,allowing quick gathering of everyone if needed. Security system,consisting of: cameras,motion sensors,traps and barriers,protects the property.Stumbling onto the grounds by accident is close to impossible,with fence and large gates ringing around them,and also quite the remote location.All members are entered into intricate security system,with their signatures recognized,and also having code word as added measure.Any strangers on the property would immediately trip alarms,with protective barrier around the mansion itself making it very hard indeed to enter uninvited,as one would have to break through.The whole property has been obtained by The Maker,and is kept up by his funds mostly.Where he gets such money is a mystery to all.Besides the mansion,there are also a number of flats situated in different cities,for members out on missions to have place to stop.A hideout is also present in far reaches of Soul Society,hidden underground.Not all members remain at mansion,some come and go,having their own places.One particular thing of The Masked,is that all Vizards are welcome,even if they already belong with Gotei 13.There is a required gathering of all members twice a year,in middle of summer and close to or right after New Years.Individual members not staying at the mansion also check in periodically.The Maker himself,comes and goes.He might stay for half a year and suddenly disappear for other half,appearing just as suddenly.Everyone has gotten used to his irregular comings and goings,but he always leaves a way to be contacted.

~Goals~
The Masked has not shown themselves much so far,nor have they exhibited any particular goals.Keeping their shinigami duties,they react to powerful Hollows and Arrancars showing in human world.Members get send out in pairs of two usually,sometimes three and sometimes alone,on missions to:investigate,hunt down Hollows,gather information,aid battle going on or observe a potential member.They also watch out for other potential Vizards.Any member may bring information regarding prospect new member,with team of two then send out to observe them for small period.From gathered information it's decided how invitation to join will be extended.If The Maker is present, his opinion is part of deciding vote.He also often brings new members himself,or directs to them.


~Alliances and Enemies~
-Higher ups in Gotei 13 are aware of The Masked existence,with during difficult battles Vizards from it often showing up to help.There's an unspoken alliance against Hollows between Gotei 13 and The Masked.For difficult and potentially dangerous missions they also sometimes contact The Masked,requesting their assistance.Members of the group have divided opinions,some saying Gotei 13 is just using them others saying even unspoken alliance is better then none at all.Both organizations exchange information with each other,having solid relationship despite all.
-The Masked also have neutral alliance with Xcution,often being comrades in battles and a more strained relationship with Crossing Arrows,distrust for them clearly evident from the Quincies.
-Las Noches and Espada are their main enemies,however,Science Group is even bigger enemy for The Masked,with number of members having become Vizard as result of SG experiments.That makes it easy to see why SG is viewed with deep hatred by almost all members of The Masked.

~Uniforms,gadgets,rules,important NPC's and misc~
-There is no set uniform,with everyone dressing as they will,considering their masks unifying aspect.However,all members receive a pin,bracelet or necklace,upon their choosing, in shape of organizations symbol.Because organization is so tightly knit,everyone knows everyone else.Each member has a cellphone, reminiscent of soul phone,denreishinki.It tracks and maps nearby Hollows and other spiritual entities,allows communication between members and with the mansion, and can be used to contact The Maker directly.
-The Maker is an NPC character for now.Handsome man,in his thirties,with shaggy black hair and silver gray eyes,he wears sharp black suite and black fedora hat.He appears weaponless until his zanpakuto suddenly appears in his hands,called from some secret space.Despite him being creator of The Masked,very little is known about him to them beyond bare facts: he's a very old Vizard,appears to be infinitely rich,his power is unmatched and he used to have a high position within Gotei 13 long ago.Coming and going however he pleases The Maker allows organization to run itself,seldom presenting missions or objectives.Interesting peculiarity is that if he helped person who had sleeping potential to become a Vizard in waking it,he always asks for favor in return,to be payed off at some later date.There are rumors that's he's gathering those favors for some big plan.Attitudes towards The Maker range between respect,loyalty,fear and resentment.


~Things to know~
-When making character for this organization,consider carefully how and why they're becoming/become a Vizard.Where they captured by SG and experimented on? Approached by Maker with offer of more power and opportunity?Exposed to large concentration of Hollow energy?How it happened will color their views and opinions.Also consider their view on being a Vizard. Do they hate what they've become?Love it?For what reasons? Depending on their view on being Vizard their treatment of themselves and others will differ.
-Consider how your character joins The Masked.Where they recruited?Seek'd the place on their own in desperation?Whether they're an older member or new one,their joining of The Masked can be role played out.
-Besides their duties with their unit each member of The Masked also has inner organizational duties,to help keep the place running.These vary greatly,from helping at medical ward,training younger members,resupplying different things,like food; to security and budget balancing.You can pick one or think of new one.
-For all members,organization is like a family,with each person knowing difficulties one must face in being a Vizard.
