Darkness was all that was surrounded this creature, it had none of the five sense's but it did posses a sixth sense of sorts. through the darkness it would see small and large blobs of color in the mysterious void that surrounded it. when ever it attempted to move it's entire being would move with it , it had concluded that its body had no limbs and was a gelatinous semi-orb. It was very small in size no bigger than a fully grown dragon fruit , almost unnoticeable as it traversed across the menos forest floor. This being didn't know hunger but something in it's core was driving it to move twoard the very tiny blobs of color which where in fact small tiny lizard like hollows , the creature would stalk and pounce on the little creatures but would leave after making contact this was the true mystery. Each time it made contact with it's target , it would leave residue behind that would rapidly encase that said target in a Crystal Prison to live out their last moments as the crystal would siphon off its captors power directly to the nameless creature.

with each and every encounter the small creature seemed to become more and more aware of it's own being but continued it's mindless eating , it began to remember parts of it's short past it's birth , it's mother , what it was made to do, although it's ultimate goal and end game seemed to be clouded even to itself. This would continue on for weeks soon the menos forest was littered with small little Crystal Prison's holding small hollow life , The creature had now become settled in it's mind and was laying low for awhile switching hunting grounds as it had recently attracted arrancar scout's to it's previous one.  The gelatinous creature sat within the darkness of the menos forest , looking out into the void and sea of colors before it from a branch within a hollowed out quartz tree. This was the only moment the creature had to actually think for a moment or two and with that came information it's instincts suppressed , solely so it could feed it's hunger for power and lust for the approval of a mother who wasn't with her.

'..i am...' the creature mind would pause as if forming a thought was a strain on it's basic functions '.Lust and Mother made me for..a purpose...' the thought process of the creature would once again stop as it slowly began to creep out of the tree and onto the branch as it was taking in the sea of colors '.one of seven children.....i must grow.....and evolve...' it's form would tremble and glow a bright neon blue for three seconds dim the glow again then fade '...must collect.....must prepare...must await my siblings...' it would bounce from atop the branch and down onto the sands below. a plethora of information came flooding into this creature mind , merlin had blessed it with a two powerful gifts one to adapt and the other to accumilate power and make their own. 

This creature needed to evolve that meant it needed something a little bigger than salamander to eat, if it wanted to attain a physical form it would something of at least Gillian level , but that would put this creature at extreme risk as right now. For something like that to work it would need to land perfectly inside a menos's hollow hole and hope it crashes into the others so the draining can fuel the massive crystal prison needed for it to work. Lust would continue bouncing her way deeper into the forest of the menos searching listing for any hint of a Gillian horde.

the sound of sand shifting and a light sound of lust bouncing along the forest floor , these where the only thing that seemed to echo throughout the perpetual darkness that surrounded it. It's mission still blazing within it's mind the need to evolve to further it's goal it had come to the conclusion the more it ate the more it's purpose would be revealed , it would halt it's bouncing jiggling as it stopped. the feint howl's of hollows could be heard in the far off distance they carried in them a hunger and sorrow , a sorrow for the void in their hearts that desperately needs to be filled but where they the cry's that this creature sought. Lust sought something that most in this realm would consider an easy quarry to be hunted , a Gillian class hollow more specifically a horde. Such a brainless creatures like Menos Grande held a substantial amount of power and their slow movements made them the optimal choice for lust to go after.

New born hollows would be the easiest targets but not optimal , new born's reside in the world of the living the few that made it to Hueco Mundo wouldn't be worth eating. Adhujas and Vasto Lordez class hollows would be a high benefit high risk targets , Lust couldn't risk being destroyed until she had secured her mission. Lust would begin to slither it's way up a quartz tree until it reached a branch and began to swing itself from branch to branch with a single pseudo-pod feeler , the appendage sprouted from what could be perceived from the top of it's being. The cry's of hollows growing louder and louder with every passing moment although something more could now be heard among the many cry's of the hollows , battle cry's echoed throughout the air.  'so im not approaching a Gillian hoard but instead a feeding frenzy...' Lust would ponder as it continued to swing closer and closer to it's location.

time was on Lust's side , the longer it simply existed the more of merlins shared knowledge on the realms of that made up their universe and the things that dwelled within them to call upon. Lust did not continue on it's originated path to join the slaughter oh no not at all , for it's quarry was not lost as these frenzies where the birth place of all Gillian.  'there is far to much clashing going on for me to get close....' lust's mind was ticking at two hundred revolutions a second. it's body would begin glowing as it finally reached it's destination perching itself atop a branch over looking the carnage. The sound of Hollow cry's and sounds of flesh and bones being snapped and torn apart was overwhelming one could say the sight may have been even more overwhelming , but Lust could not perceive physical forms yet it could only see ones aura and spirit energy. What it saw was a storm of colors and a tower of malevolent force filled with hatred and malice that could rival any sinner's hate , Lust couldn't explain what it felt but there was a feeling of peace within itself witnessing this.

'the carnage is far to intense for me , and i'd risk being consumed' Lust had to think of something quickly before the convergence of souls began or it would lose it's chance , something it needed to take into consideration was how to contain the horde. They would take shape and occupy all available space but what would happen if you set up a tight close knit perimeter around them? would it force the newly formed beings to stay closely packed together or would it send them into a panic? this small creature would soon find out.  'to cover the needed perimeter i'd need to sacrifice a good portion of my mass and that's only if i accommodate the area's where the tree's are the farthest apart but maybe'  Lust would turn from the opera of colors and death and begin scurrying up the quartz tree even further.

The Menos Forest mimicked an ants nest in many ways , it had many entry ways scattered atop the sand that let in light , the quartz tree's where like support pillars which meant the canopy in area's away from the entrance slash exit holes where solid for the most part. What does this all mean one could ask well Lust's first thought has a high risk of failing , with a possibility of losing an extreme amount of mass but this way had a more subtle finesse to it. As lust reached the top of the tree it would dig it's pseudo-pod  like feeler into the canopy of the forest sprouting a second one as it crawled to position itself over the epicenter of the carnage below. 'now we wait for our moment of passage..'

The storm below raged on and on for each hollow it saw fall , five more would join the fray of battle it was an endless blood bath of senseless killing not being able to actually see the scene down below it was instead a massive storm of bursting and fading colors.  Lust was lucky it was incapable of tiring or else it would've fallen into fiasco below long ago , it was only a matter of time before all these souls began reacting to one another. Lust had come up with a death from above approach to the situation as that would yield the best result's seeing as Gillian had that pea sized brain , and limited mobility all it needed was the how. Now it would still be loosing some mass but not on such a grand scale , all it needed to do while in it's current state was make contact to leave residue to let the crystal prison take effect.

Lust planned to act similar to a spray bottle first going for a fine mist spray then alternating to little jets of it's mass , it would be able to due this less sparingly once the first few shots where fired as upon crystal prison's forming they begin transmitting spirit energy back to Lust. The spirit energy would help it regrow the lost mass rapidly creating a perfect cycle of entrapment assuming all goes well with the plan. suddenly the sounds of battle below turned into a harmony wails that shook the quartz tree's in the surrounding area that acted as support pillars for the canopy of the forest shaking some debris loose and almost sending lust to an early grave as one of it's appendage's was shook loose. 'what the hell!?...mothers memories never included this crazy fiasco i thought they'd just merge like paint or clay!!' Lust would scream internally as it hung on for dear life constantly having to find a new hold for it's appendages as the canopy became more and more unstable by the second. all while lust scrambled for it's life upon the canopy many large black masses's had emerged from the chaos below the lowest tear of menos known hueco mundo. 

One by one huge black pillars rose unbeknownst to lust as it swung towards a tree branch narrowly escaping going splat on the forest floor , although something seemed very unsettling it was silent far to silent for the event that just occurred. even though Lust was in fact in fact a spherical mass of goop it's vision was limited to 180 degrees on a single side of it's body a horrible design flaw in it's opinion , one of the few things it was displeased with when it came to it's creator. Lust would slowly turn around even though it would appear that it was sitting still from a third person point of view , what came next made the deep neon blue slime creature turn a pale glassy baby blue from what it was looking at. What sight met Lust's gaze was none other than a Gillian's gaze and it made Lust's smaller more innocent soul feel as if it had been sent to death , it's large red cold soulless eye's bored into the small creature and the mask though ridiculous only added to the pure terror Lust was feeling. If the small creature could scream it would have let out a shriek that would've ruptured the Gillians ear drums assuming it had any in that bowling pin shaped head , brainless or not being face to face with a evolved hollow was terrifying and lust needed a moment to gather itself for the task it was about to undertake.

Lust would quickly use it's appendages to crawl to the opposite side of the tree post haste feeling far to exposed within that three second window , 'what was that feeling just now...i felt like i was in danger....Gillian are supposed to be weak why would i feel like that?!' where had these knew feelings that had arisen come from. with the recent de-stabilization canopy the act of 'death from above' would be near impossible without risking it's life that only the hit and drive technique. Lust would slowly slide down the quartz tree and positoin it safe to look at the Gillian as it did so , each passing second felt like an eternity as Lust's small form continued to look up it's altitude and shear size made it seem like a mountain. Among that fear that had settled itself within lust a revelation occurred it was no more than a gnat to these beast's and it's minuscule amount of power didn't register on their radars ,Lust also realized to pull this off it had to think not like a predator but like an underlying parasite. 'to become what i was destined to be , to reach the next stage i must succeed!' it would exclaim within it's mind as it eyed these powerful beings before it a new feeling bubbling forth.

In a fit of blind courage Lust would begin bouncing twoard the large feet of the Gillian horde , everything now clear to this creature bathed in the rejuvenating flames of courage as it neared it's target. Lust upon getting within a good of the Gillian's foot would bounce forward as hard as possible , its body would flatten out then pop back into shape as it was sent ricocheting into another large foot. Each time it was bounced from one Gillian's foot to another a patch of blue residue would be left behind signaling the activation of Lust's Crystal Prison , While lust bounced around mind blocking out the world it was lost to what was happening around it. The crystal's had begun growing at an exponential rate draining off the spirit energy of the host sending half to lust while the rest was used to fuel it's growth , the crystal growths on the Gillian's feet had rooted themselves deep in the ground and sprouted outward stabbing other Gillian the pain eliciting cry's from the Gillian. As this chaos ensued a few Gillian fired off cero's killing their fellow menos grande causing their body's to evaporate like most hollows of that level do when killed , this would leave a few empty spaces within the Crystal prison but what remained would be suffice.

As the crystal crept upward Lest nestled itself in one of the empty pockets left by a dead Gillian ,  all the world would go black as the very last Gillian was encased the crystal creeping into the very crevice's of it's mask. All was silent the great crystal prison and Lust's Cocoon was complete to outside part's it would look like a simple mineral but upon closer inspection they would see the hollows that lay within.

Silence reigned over all the known universe within the mind of Lust consumed by darkness , how long had it been minutes , hours , seconds , days, months or years the creature could not grasp the concept of time while in the realm of Hueco Mundo let alone from within the pitch black darkness of its cradle. was it alive anymore at all? what had happened? these question burned throughout Lust's mind as it sat there laying within , all it had known sense the darkness came was pain it's mass was contorted , stretched , shaped and hardened over and over by some unknown force. Lust having no idea what pain truly was just acknowledged that this was discomfort on an extremely new level with each re-shaping more painful than the last , The space Lust occupied grew smaller and smaller making it more difficult for the creature to move during this painful time. The very moment the apendages such as arms and legs began to take shape Lust tried to thrash violently within the confined space , this act was foolish as she would soon learn due to the crystal prison responding to this by encasing its legs and arm while continuing the procedures of building the body. Soon Lust's screams of internal torment where no longer confined to it's mind as it heard it's own voice for the first time call out in distress which confirmed it's gender as female , " MoThER MAKe IT StOP!!...pLEAsE....MAKE IT STOP!!"  she cryed out between sob's and sharp intakes of breath the sound of muffled screams barely leaving the crystal prison ; before the pain overtook her causing her to black out.

When Lust began to stir she slowly opened her eyes her body felt oddly relaxed for someone who recently went through and inside out remolding session , the sight that met her was the view of a still and calm beautiful lake. As lust began to fumble picking herself up not yet used to her limbs she would stumble to her left but she didn't fall she had been caught by a stone wall only then did she realize that she was in a small cave. "where is this place" she would mumble taking in the surroundings of this cave only to notice there where crystal formations protruding from the roof and floor , She would turn her head just a little to view the outside of the cave's maw to see more crystal formations along the entrance way. 'did i die!?' where the only words lust could formulate within her new skull as all the evidence was on the table , inner worlds where reserved for people who where their own person her mother hadn't seperated her that much...had she? Lust would slowly begin walking twoard the maw of the cave her feet crunching under the gravel outside as she approached the waters edge  , she would crouch there and look at the water's reflective mirror like surface and be in a daze at what stared back at her.

Though her daze was not a long one as a familiar voice was heard one that had heralded her birth into reality , "im happy to see you like your appearance , my most beautiful child~"  the voice was smooth and refined on Lust's ear it made her feel warm and safe , yet at the same time it made he feel a sense of want and need. Lust would turn around standing as she did so coming face to face with Merlin in a sense , what lust was seeing was mearly another fragment but this one was of merlins maternal will should they not fulfill her wishes she could at least be a decent mother a small dime to pay towards her penance in hell. "mother? why are you here? what am i supposed to do?"  Lust would waste no time in firing off questions she had many more but she didn't know how much time she would truly have with her mother , Although lust was flustered Merlins fragment within her was not it simply put a finger over Lust's lips a 'shhhh' motion. "i made you to help your siblings , your body can only hold so much power"  putting her index finger on lust's forehead as if rubbing in obvious information , "your kin cant all harvest power like you can they'd risk being killed or worse discovered" she would then remove her finger and cross both her hands infront of herself in a 'propper lady pose. "with that being said you already knew what to do...from the start"  these where merlins last words before the the world started to fade to black.

Back in Hueco Mundo Lust's body had just finished it's change and her body was gathering spirit energy attempting to break free from the prison of her own creation , luckily she was in an air pocket so it had a chance of working. The crystal couldn't feed on it's own owners power so there was no risk of it further encasing her , the crystal would begin to shake small cracks forming on the structure causing mini vents to be created kicking up a fair amount of wind and sand. A few newborn hollows and arrancars had gathered the arrancars staying back while the hollows rushed in pounding away at the already cracking structure , being covert was ruined as las noches would receive reports of her existence now without a doubt. Soon the small fissures became large cracks and with one last burst of energy Lust would push her spirit energy outward causing the structure to crumble and killing the Gillian that where preserved within , a large cloud of sand was kicked  from the explosion  but it gave her the perfect cover to get away. "i cant fight just yet not enough power or skill on my side" she'd mumble as she ran off into the void of the menos forest.
