The Basic Plot
The ability to manipulate time, turning back events for even only a moment is something desired by many, if not all. Though having such dreams is only a beautiful nightmare, you could never stop anyone from dreaming. As time went by, sorrow, calamity, suffering took control leaving only just a glimmer of hope. But where ever destruction went, lives were lost. And like the trees stripped of their leaves during winter, life was restored once spring came around again. Life. The reason why we try so hard to survive, hoping that through the darkness, another chance of a renewed life will be granted. Each and every race that so happened to be aware of each other. Wished for this same thing, their own worlds being carved to reflect this. Evolution started off with the Humans, meager and timid, only to ascend to greater heights.
The Humans becoming more spiritually aware of the world around them. Went through what most would describe as an Awakening. And so they too began to discover the truths of the world, now that their dormant selves were now "Awakened". The transition from being a "regular" creature to becoming an "Awakened" was never an easy task. Only a few were blessed with the powers to do so. And it also took the influence of other beings to ignite the flames of their spirits. The awakened ones soon discovered that they powers beyond what most humans could comprehend. Most of them were seen as oddities of nature, some chose to shun these powers. Ignoring the obvious call to ascend to a greater being. Overtime certain awakened humans found themselves accepting their powers, accepting the truth so to speak. Honing their powers, pushing themselves to the limit, until they had ascended above the awakened ones. Those that has ascended has learned the true nature of their powers. Even giving themselves a purpose in the world, whether it was good or bad didn't matter. The most important thing is that they had a new life.
The Quincy race that almost became extinct, regained their footing in the world. Living amongst humans unaware of their abilities and those aware of them. The dwindling numbers of the Quincy race, sought to multiply. Following the natural laws of the world as far as survival was concerned. They began reproducing other Quincy hopefuls. Living among the Humans in the material world, whilst keeping their traditions alive. From the looks of things, the Quincy race was fully integrated among the humans. The Quincy race did what they had to survive extinction, even breaking off into small tribes. Living in numerous locations in the realm of the humans. It was one way for them to ensure their survival.
The majority of the Bounto race in these current times, came about as an experiment. Although others came about through other means. Those that were created through the means of an experiment. Were dubbed as failed experiments, discarded by the ones who created them. This time however, a massacre didn't follow. Instead they are seen as pawns in a much grander scheme. The Bounto at this moment in time are allies of no one. Hardly ever grouping together, little to no organization. They too managed to integrate themselves among the humans, laying in waiting. Their memories of what had happened to them, so happens to be fabricated. Yet another part of a greater plan, deception at its best. As per usual the Bounto had special powers, very much the same as the Bounto of past times.
The Hollow race ruled over Hueco Mundo as intended since past times. Although they are many, much like any other race. Only a few chosen by fate were able to evolved, gaining powers beyond their normal capabilities. The evolution from regular Hollow to Gillian, to Adjuchas happened over time. However their evolution did take some time, but time must have been on their side. As more and more stronger Hollows began infesting Hueco Mundo. The balance of power shifted and so chaos followed. However there were those not only driven by instincts, but by intelligence also. That sought to restore the natural order of things, bringing balance to Hueco Mundo. Some of these Hollows were able to even evolved beyond a simple Adjuchas, to being a Vasto Lorde. Hueco Mundo was still a place of emptiness, no real home for any creature. That was until a group of Hollows came together, traveling across the sandy plains of Hueco Mundo. In the middle of nowhere they discovered an ancient cavern, with the potential to become a palace. The stronger hollows gathered under one leadership. Rebuilding this structure for their own benefits. And over time this ancient palace was once again fit for a king. The newly formed Las Noches ruled by those that obtained great powers. Becoming Arrancars, coming together to create a military. Among the strongest of this military were the Espada, said to be the equivalent of a Shinigami Captain in power.
The Shinigami like any other race also faced hard times. Their forces undergoing several changes, based on loses among change of leadership. The Soul Society faced some instability as far as the Gotei 13 was concerned. But luckily for the Shinigami, none of the other races were at full power at that time. They all had the ability to fight, but their effectiveness wasn't at all what it used to be. The Shinigami situation were beginning to seem hopeless, yet they remained a hopeful race. Their pride as the God's of death driving them forward. A mixture of old and young came together, experienced and less experienced. Working hard to solidify their defenses and even boost their offense. This came in the form of the 13 Captains that made up the Gotei 13. During past times, the Gotei 13 lost quite a few of its Captains. Reducing it to the Gotei "7" being that there were only 7 Captains active at the time. But as the seasons changed, the dark clouds lifted, the rainy days became less as the Sun shined its light onto the Shinigami. New candidates fully qualified for the position of Captain stepped up and increased the military power. The politicians that caused so many problems were removed. A fairly new government was chosen and the Shinigami were made to resume their normal duties. Rebuilding and reinventing themselves took some time. But they eventually got there, now awaiting the future events to unfold.
The Vizards as usual was never to be accepted, shunned by their brethren, forcefully or not. Those that obtained the powers of a Hollow were seen as traitors to Soul Society. Especially during the times when the Gotei 13 was trying to rebuild itself. Most of the Shinigami that obtained these powers, managed to flee, escaping sure death. But not everyone had an happy ending, as many were disposed of upon orders. The Vizard so far doesn't seem to have a purpose. Rogues that are no longer welcome to be apart of the Gotei 13. They are said to wander the different realms, perhaps searching for a new purpose. Their fate is in the palms of their hands.
The Zanapakuto Spirits
The very essence of the Shinigami's powers and abilities, the manifestation of their souls. A Zanapakuto that has severed its bonds with their master, are said to be very few. However, these rampant and somewhat dangerous creatures also wander off on their own. Perhaps searching for a new master or a purpose, the meaning behind their existence. A Zanapakuto spirit can prove to be dangerous at times. Although some may choose to follow the ways of the Gotei 13. Others may choose to wander off as rogues, becoming targets of the Shinigami.
For everyone of these souls, be it Shinigami, Hollow etc. A dark cloud is approaching and soon like seasonal change. Peace will be but a fleeting desire, only for a moment as war consumes everything. Once again forcing these spiritual realms of find a new beginning, a new purpose and a new life. The end is merely the beginning and the beginning is the end. Alliances will be formed, bonds will be broken and allies will turn against each other. The question is, which part will you play in this?
