    Metabee mulled over Yoshirou’s idea but ultimately thought it flawed and too high risk. However, he didn’t just leave it at that but told his thoughts on the matter. Meanwhile, JDan and Yoshi finished eating while hearing the Advisor out. JDan furrowed his brow while listing to Meta but it was Yoshirou that spoke up first. “I admit my plan is not without its flaws but I don’t think those concerns you mentioned are fully valid. Your correct, there isn’t a Captain Commander or even a properly functioning Central 46 but as Kido Commander you have the highest military authority in the Soul Society. Not to mention the Clan that you advise for is currently the most powerful, prominent and influential of the Great Noble Clans,” he says with a grin. “If we cannot gain access to the Muken facing our current situation then there isn’t a soul alive that could nor a circumstance that would warrant it; if not for now.” JDan remained silent. At first he agreed with Metabee that the only way in was to break in. But when he heard Yoshi’s argument he didn’t know what to make of it, as he never thought of it that way. They were both right… or were one of them wrong, JDan wasn’t sure so he remained quiet and continued to listen to both sides. “We will still have to confront them, fight them, and weaken them enough to actually be able to bind them but once fully restrained even the Soul King himself would be hard pressed to break out of these constraints,” Yoshirou spoke confidently, it was a bit exaggerated perhaps but it should get the point across. “At that point transportation will be nerve-racking but doable and once inside the Muken we both know its neigh impossible to escape.” It was well known that the Muken is a completely isolated and separated space, sealed off from outside influences. As such no portal conceived, even the Gates of Hell, could gain access. “I personally believe that the Muken’s sole purpose is for evil such as them. We don’t have to decide now but having options is always beneficial. While I too think striking at the heart of the enemy is best I feel the rest of your plan is overly optimistic. I cannot personally speak for their forces but I do think that we are vastly out match in both numbers and power. Though that is just my assumption.” Hearing them both out JDan came to his own conclusion. “I agree with not having to decide just yet. If anything to me, we should just combine both of you all’s idea into a singular plan: Kill as many of the soldiers as possible, efficiently as possible, sending them back to Hell. And have an elite squad attack the leaders with the intention of sealing and imprisoning them.” “Haha, at least no one here is a pessimist,” Yoshi replied with a smile. “That would only make things harder.”

    Metabee stated his thoughts on the Noble’s concerns, helping to put his worries at ease. Both him and JDan were confident that they were doing things the way it was meant to be. Besides Metabee had a good point. Just because it works a certain way for completed Kido techniques didn’t mean that it worked the same for creating them. The Advisor’s points were valid and most likely true; besides creating an experimental technique empowered by its name was hazardous. “You have valid points,” responses Yoshirou. “I guess my concerns were more hypothetical than concrete but it was reassuring to get you guys’ opinion.” Besides speculating there was nothing more they could do so the conversation progressed. “You mean after the Trials?... Well, I can’t speak for JDan but you missed out on a hell of a good time with me! I had a mountain of paper work that I went a few rounds with. Unfortunately I conceded the battle after a few hours though; it wasn’t pretty,” Yoshi answered with a dash of Meta’s humor. “After that I gave our other guests a small tour but nothing too exciting as it was already very late.” JDan couldn’t help but chuckle a little at Yoshi’s revelation. “A few hours huh, you sure?” he says teasingly. “I don’t remember staring at a clock so who knows,” Yoshirou replies with a smirk. JDan had nothing eventful to report so Meta filled in the silence. “Impressive,” blurts out JDan. “My thoughts exactly,” adds Yoshi. “You’re never one to disappoint that’s for sure.” At this rate and with a little luck, although Commander-less and Captain-less, the entire Gotei might stand on a united front before any serious events with Hell could occur. “Guess now is a great time to mention one of the research reports that came across my desk concerning Sekkiseki stone. Their goal is, to not only to improve upon its already incredible effects and durability, but to make it more versatile as well. Ideally it would make for great restraints against enemies that can’t permanently die.” “You mean Sinners,” says JDan. “Precisely,” states Yoshirou. “I’ve been thinking for a while now about an offensive that could have lasting effects against an immortal foe. Unfortunately I didn’t come up with very many ideas. In fact there was only one that seemed viable and that is to bind and seal them away in the Muken. I don’t mean all of them but definitely Sama’el and whoever else will lead the charge against us. Now, I know its still not a permanent fix for Hell but it’s a solution to our current woes with them.” JDan listened with surprise, as it was the first he was hearing about any of this as well. “Is such a thing even possible?” “Possible…” Yoshirou shrugs his shoulders. “Possible, yes I believe so. Probable, now that’s the million dollar question.” They both looked to Metabee to get his input or ideas if any on the matter.

    With the matter of Metabee’s name settled they moved on to the hybrid technique they have been so diligently working on. “Kido, Zanjutsu, Kijin… Wow it sounds so natural,” JDan says. When he said it, it sort of felt like it was always called Kijin and they developed a technique around the name instead of the other way around; that’s how well it seemed to fit. Yoshirou smiled. Naming something can be difficult so he was relieved that his first choice was well accepted. Metabee then brought up something that had not even crossed the other’s minds yet. Much like Shunko, the activation of Kijin was heavily based off kido so an increase in power after stating its name was possible, even though its counterpart didn’t. “You might be on to something Meta. At the very least stating its name might even make the ability easier to activate…. The more I think about it now the more I think we might have been developing this skill with one arm tied behind our backs,” replied Yoshirou, leaning back in his seat at this realization. “When learning or using a Kido the starting point is always its name and incantation first. It’s only after improving from there that you move to a more advance level,” he said just stating aloud more than addressing anyone. “But it is a hybrid technique so no telling what does and doesn’t apply. This is uncharted territory so when we practice everything, its simply trial and error,” JDan states, wanting to reassure Lord Kyoraku. “But with you two spearheading this whole thing we’ll have all the kinks worked out and ready to teach in no time, I mean just look at how far we've come already. I doubt anyone else could accomplish what we have in such a short time.” “You’re right,” admits Yoshi. He was glad that he was surround by such wonderful and talented people. They say with the right people around you it can turn an average leader into a good one, and a good leader into a great one and how true they were. They both resumed eating their food giving Metabee time to add more to this topic or choose another if there was something else on his mind.

    The Noble could tell his words didn’t have the effect he was going for. If anything his words were a double edge sword so it was best to tread lightly, else risk making things worse. The conversation continued but Yoshirou couldn't help but think about what he would have done in Meta’s situation. He’d like to think that he would have an easier time making the same decision but he has never felt the same kind of passion they shared for another person. Sure, Yoshirou has had his fair share of crushes, and have even been attracted to a few people in the past but those feelings couldn’t compare to what they shared. The closest thing Yoshi could think of that could compare was the way he felt for his Clan. It was a parental, fatherly love, but his feelings for them were genuine. And that’s when it donned on him. How meaningless and perhaps even a little ignorant his words were. No amount of fancy wordplay could soothe his heart when he found out his Clan was all but completely destroyed. So it was arrogant to think he could so effortless ease the woes of Metabee’s heart with a simple speech… JDan arrived, snapping Yoshirou back to the now. They were all good friends at this point so a greeting was unnecessary after such a short time away; as such JDan dove right into the conversation as he took his seat at the table. “Well unless you state otherwise you will always be Metabee Ainsworth to me,” replies Yoshi with JDan nodding in agreement. “It certainly would keep things simpler,” JDan comments just before digging into his dinner. He had a few question about the matter but before he could swallow and continue, Yoshirou spoke up. “Aw, speaking of names it brings me to something I wanted to discuss with you both first before making it official. I’ve been thinking of a name for the technique you both helped me pioneer. I mean, we can’t just call it the “Hybrid Technique” forever,” the Noble states with a slight chuckle. JDan who had just begun enjoying his food suddenly found himself to interested to continue stuffing his face. “And!!” “Kido is synonymous with the 'Demon Arts’ while Zanjutsu is the 'Art of the Sword.’ For a technique combining the two, to me, the obvious name is Kijin… meaning ‘Demon Blade Arts.’ Its short and simple but it flows smoothly right of the tongue and I think it fits nicely,” Yoshirou said finishing his thoughts and now awaiting their reactions.

    “Nothing,” replied Metabee causing Yoshirou to have a perplexed look on his face. Thankfully the Commander further elaborated clearing up the confusion, though it didn’t make things much better. Yoshi turned from dumfounded, to angry, to sad then furious though; he did better to hide it from Meta than he did initially. What a horrible trail to have to go through, was his Zanpakotu Spirit evil? To place that type of burden on his friend’s shoulders, now of all times, put a bad taste in his mouth. His answer was obvious though, as he was sitting here before him, which brought a smile to his heart. Meta finished by informing him that his real name was Vincent. Finally it made since. Only an emotionless bastard wouldn’t be effected by that trial, and a lesser man would have failed completely. There was no way to be certain that you could trust the Zan Spirit to pull off such a feat. There’s a serious chance that the other option would have lead to a comma of sorts. Anyways Yoshi couldn’t go on without giving some sort of “words of encouragement,” and thankfully he knew exactly what to say. “If you give life to the possibility that, that reality is real or could some how exist, somewhere no matter how small the chance. Then you must believe that an infinite amount of possibilities exists where any conceivable scenario is true. What I mean is that there is perhaps a world where she becomes a Shinigami instead, to protect you. Or even one where both of you become a Shinigami, sharing the same surname and Division. And I could go on and on, but ultimately what I’m getting at is that for every… unfortunate reality there is also a more fortunate one to balance it out,” Yoshirou states. Of course that was if other realities existed but the main point was to relieve some of the tension from Metabee’s heart. If he thought about it from a bigger perspective then he might even return to his normal self soon. Yoshirou took a sip from his glass giving Meta time to respond, if he wanted to. If not then Yoshi would continue. “So do I call you Vincent now?” “Why would you call him Vincent?” asked JDan as he took a seat. Yoshirou was so caught up in the moment that he didn’t notice JDan till he was right there. “Ah, long story short it’s possible that it could be Metabee’s real name.”

    Nero and Teschma split off from Yoshirou, meeting up with their newly acquainted friends, after grabbing a hot plate of course. It was a little cliché but 2 of the 3 people they met up with were Vizards, Nolan being one of them. He along with Jessica hand managed to track them down at Lord Kyoraku’s command. Dinner for them progressed cheerfully but even so Teschma remained distracted throughout most of the course. He couldn't help but think about their meeting later with Yoshirou and how everything, once again, was about to change for them. But perhaps that’s why he had made the choices he has so far- nothing remaining the same, the scenery and situation always changing, but maybe this time would be the last. ­­­ ----- “When a man deems something important he can be a little clingy, haha,” says Yoshirou in-between taking bites of food. From the start of the conversation Metabee seems to be returning to his normal self. Maybe they were worried for nothing but then Yoshirou remembered back to the look in Meta’s eyes. It was like peering into a bottomless pit of sorrow, pain, loss and a bit of regret all mixed into an awful concoction. No, they weren’t over reacting, Yoshi made up his mind to inquire about the situation. Without JDan around maybe Meta would reveal a little more than he would have otherwise. Yoshirou took a sip of water, clearing his throat, and took a shot. “If any thing you’re the one putting up with all this, on top of all my shenanigans. But I’m glad you are doing better. You were really out of it the after your trial, you gave us a little scare. I can only assume that your trial was far different than ours but I’m still at a loss as to what happened. What exactly did your Zanpakuto make you do?” he asked. Of course if he refused to answer and preferred not to talk about it Yoshirou would drop the subject but as a friend he would always lend an open ear.

    "At this rate we could finish ahead of schedule," replies Yoshirou before they all headed back to freshen up. After cleaning up and changing into a set of clothes that was not drenched in sweat, Yoshirou headed for the dinning hall. He moved with a little pep in his step knowing that Metabee would be joining him again. It was obvious something was different with him but at least he seems to be doing better tonight. Before entering the cafeteria Yoshi was approached by Teschma and Nero. The atmosphere around them was much more formal and serious, like it was when they first arrived. “Lord Yoshirou Kyoraku, we have come to a decision on your proposal,” says Tesch. “Excellent, lets speak in my office after tonight’s dinner. I look forward to hearing what your answers are,” replies Yoshi, smiling. He had planned on asking them if they came to a decision yet but they beat him to the punch. “Shall you two be joining us supper?” The two Vizards nervously looked at one another before replying. “Well, yes and no. We’ll be eating here but we made some friends during training who asked us to eat with them tonight,” Nero answers. Now understanding their hesitation the Noble laughs aloud. “Haha, that’s completely fine,” he says thinking it was actually really awesome that they were able to do so. “You two enjoy yourselves. When your done just hang around the Manor and I will send Harold for you when I’m ready.” They agreed and all entered the dinning hall together though went there separate ways right after. The room was lively but Yoshirou didn’t spot JDan or Metabee yet, though shortly after grabbing his food he noticed Meta enter. For now he simply waved so that he could go claim a table before there were none. It was the first time they caught the main dinner rush since their training started and it was far more crowded to say the least. After securing a table Yoshirou started eating, he was starving after the long training sessions and knew the others would understand as they’d to the same. It wasn’t long though before Metabee arrived. “It’s definitely a different scene in here when we’re on time isn’t it,” he said greeting his friend. Yoshi wanted to jump right in to the matter of “what’s wrong with Metabee,” but decided it was best to ease into the topic. “I bet seeing it so lively only makes you miss your Division more; again thanks for being here and helping out so much.”

    JDan was diligently training like the others but advancing at a slower rate. The energy consumption was just too much for him to maintain it longer than a few seconds at a time, so firing of a kido or energy blast was out of the question. For now at least, with his work ethic and determination it was only a matter of time. On the flip side of things Yoshirou was doing rather well. He’d practiced more on releasing the kido through his Zanpakutos. While it still felt strange to do so, it was much more convenient while wielding a weapon, especially if you duel wielded. Once mastered the benefits would be unbelievable. The Noble couldn’t help but smile at such a fact and be happy that one of his goals would soon be fully fulfilled. By the time they were ready to call it quits, it was already dinnertime. JDan and Yoshi meet up first but Metabee was lying on the ground. He had been that way for sometime now but the others assumed he was meditating, though now they weren’t so sure. “I think he fell asleep,” says JDan. “No, I’m telling you he’s meditating,” replies Yoshirou with is fingers secretly crossed as he hoped he was right. But before they could debate it any longer the Kido Commander opened his eyes, as if on cue. “So how did things go today?” asked Yoshirou as they approached him. He hoped it was much better than the day before as he immediately secluded himself after training. If things went well they would proceed with their usual routine, which was to clean up and have supper.

    Mean while… The new regiment of training the Clan instated was really paying off. The members were not only fine-tuning their swordsmanship and kido but learning how to adapt them together into combat. While they were far from fusing them together they were interchanging, from one to the other, much more efficiently. More importantly they grew more comfortable doing so even though as a Clan they relied heavily on Zanjutsu. Teschma and Nero were apart of these sessions and can even say they saw improvement as well. Being mercenaries their fighting style was different from the norm. If the proper style of Zanjutsu was martial arts then what they knew was professional street fighting. As such they gained a lot of knowledge in these past few days that help them further their prowess. During their breaks they discussed over what there decision might be. They knew that they couldn’t take advantage of Yoshirou’s generosity forever and needed to give him an answer soon; so far it was a split decision. They both wanted placement in the Gotei 13 but didn’t agree on what to due about his offer to join the clan. Nero found the idea quite nice. He knew that he could easily get comfortable with a lifestyle of luxury and nobility. But on the other hand Tesch was still unsure. For him he’d rather not but knowing that Nero was planning on accepting the offer it made his choice that much harder.

    It was as the devil said. Without lifting a finger the pain and suffering of those two increased dramatically. Emotions… such a useful thing at times, but more often than not a complete hindrance, clouding the mind and judgment of its victim. The funny thing is living creatures always think there in control of such a thing when in fact it’s the exact opposite. Sama’el watched as the female struggle. She struggled not only with her injuries but with the evil within her. A power so concentrated it summoned the Overseer from the depths of Hell. Gazing at her Hollow side he called to it, hoping to further excite it possibly drawing it out. “Demon, devour her and arise.” Unfortunately his words fell on deaf hears as she progressively starting winning the struggle. With the two reunited the fight with the Hollow inside her came to an end. Even still the rage in Dante grew at the thought of possibly killing his own comrade. The bad weather brewed into a blizzard causing Sama’el to laugh out loud. “Hahaha, I could show you a place so cold that your ice would shiver or so hot that it’d be impossible to form. You need just lay down your arms. A war is coming between Hell and the rest of the realms. Those that pick the wrong side will die. Those that don’t pick a side will die. Those that are useless… will die,” he says stating a point. Death was at nearly every option, all around them. In the air they breath or the food they eat- death was inescapable. Unable to contain himself Dante erupts, screaming with displeasure. His rage and hatred mixed together drowning out reasoning. “I suppose we did get off on the wrong foot this time,” says Sama’el knowing his abrupt entry was a little frightening. Perhaps now was the time to crush Dante's spirit in its entirety and take his leave. The charged cero rocketed his way. Now was not the time for trickery but complete and utter despair. Sama’el lifts his free hand, the chains of Hell now visible for all to see, as he catches the hate filled cero. The ball of energy exploded as he crushed it in his hand, obscuring him from their vision. The ice around him melted from the blast but quickly refroze due the ongoing blizzard. As the smoke and dust settled Sama’el was once again visible as he remained steadfast. The robe up to his elbow was completely burned off, revealing his scrawny, bony arm. His flesh was burned and singed but it wasn’t due to the cero. No, it was due to being exposed for eons to the blistering cold or the ferociously burning fires of Hell. However the he did receive a few burns on his hand but thanks to the regenerative capabilities of a Tsumikami, which far exceeded a Hollow’s, the wounds disappeared before their eyes. Hopefully, now the situation was made vastly clear to them. With their current strength and abilities they were but a snowflake next to a glacier. He lowered his arm while speaking. “I think I have out stayed my welcome. I will take my leave for now but I will be back. I will be back with the same offer as before though if you reject my offer of power then… well you will have chosen your side.” The Overseer slowly and eerily started to seep into the ground. Unless they had something worth listening to he would take his leave. ooc> attempts to leave thread

    The output of spiritual energy coming from Dante was impressive yet Sama’el remained unflinching. “Impudent fool. Your insolence will be your down fall," he says looking upon him in his new form. The Vizard clad in ice was so sure of himself that he recklessly charged the Overseer, full of spunk and vigor. “Here me and remember! I am Sama’el, the Overseer of Hell, Death itself yet what happens next is on your hands not mine.” Which was true as he showed up only offering power and allegiance, though at a small teeny tiny cost. The icy onslaught raced for Sama’el but still he did nothing. He had no plans of blocking or diverting the attack. No, with a helpless Shinigami so close it would be more fun to see the terror on their faces as he did the unexpected. The ice cross phased right through the Tsumikami colliding with the ground and most likely Aurora as she remains limp and barely able to move. With so much chaos already brewing what would they do if Sama’el got serious and used more than wicked way with words? Just behind the attack was Dante, as he too slipped right through Sama’el. But was he quick enough to help Aurora was a different question all together. With a front row seat Sama’el excitedly watched as he waited to see the outcome of the predicament they but themselves in. abilities used

    "Your impudence is appalling. I come with offerings of goodwill and this is how you respond! So be it," says Sama'el watching the warrior clad in ice rush him. The reaitsu the Vizard put off was impressive yet Sama'el stood his ground, unflinching. "I am Sama'el the Overseer of Hell, Death itself... know this, what happens next is your doing, not mine!" The icy onslaught rushed the Overseer yet he did nothing but stand there. He stood there with Aurora, who was helpless and unable to move well, having no plan on blocking or diverting the attack. No, the Bankai attack would pass right through Sama'el smashing into the ground and perhaps Aurora unless she mustered up the strength to save her own life. One thing was sure and that was the grim look of the situation they now found themselves in without Death having to lift a single finger, a skill he was highly effective in. If his words and presence were this overwhelming, what would they do when he got serious??

    The outburst of energy reached Sama’el as he notices the ice blanket the land. “No need to be so hasty. I’m no enemy… yet but that can very easily change,” he says snapping his head towards Dante. If looks could kill then his glare would have done so a thousand times over. However it went unseen, hidden by the mask that covered Sama’el’s face. His attention immediately shifted back to Aurora as her words barely stumbled from her mouth. She struggled just to talk but vigorously rejected his offer without the slightest bit of hesitation. “You should strongly reconsider.” The Overseer stood to his feet. Knowing she wasn’t going anywhere he turned to face Dante. “Such fury and emotion. You care for her do you? Then why not join me? Convince her and join the armies of Hell, such talent could prove useful.”

    Dante voiced his protest but Sama’el paid him no mind for it would take more than that to divert his attention. No the screams and whimpers of pain was ecstasy to ears, making it impossible for him to stop. Sama’el very seldomly showed up for a straight on fight. Instead he preferred to trick and manipulate his targets or instill terror in them… Sama’el’s hand stretched out revealing long, pale, and slender looking fingers that could even be described as sickly. They reached out as if to grab her by the throat and put her out of her misery. But instead they caressed her cheek sliding down to her chin. “Look at you, beaten and battered yet you couldn’t look anymore beautiful if you tried,” he says. It was so creepy that it made you wish for the former choice and pray that it was a swift death. “Care to make a deal with a devil??? If its power you seek then I can give you more than your fill. You need but come with me.”

    ooc> slight time skip into the future for Sama'el. The calm wind picked up as the temperature dropped a few degrees. To living creatures it was a sign of something ominous and this particular occasion would be no different. Like the stuff of nightmares a “boogieman” appeared out of the tree’s shadow. The mysterious intruder wore a robe so black you could distinguish it from the shadows. Furthermore spiky protrusions littered his body like decorations of pure torture with a long death scythe present in his left hand. It didn’t matter where it was as long as there were shadows, there would be a door for Him to enter. Emerging less than a yard from the injured girl he was completely facing her with Dante approaching from his side. What would bring the Overseer of Hell all the way here, in this dimension inside a realm? Well for better or worse they would soon find out… “My, my, I sense something powerful inside you,” says Sama’el, his voice reverberating in a dreadful tone. The stench of death oozed from his words so strong you could smell it a mile away. In the next second Sama’el bends over reaching out to the helpless girl, as she lay broken she would become his victim. items: Black Curtain (Robe)- this robe was hand crafted eons ago by Sama'el himself to further conceal his presence making his reaitsu neigh undetectable.
