Hollowbreeds have been fighting and slaughtering for as long as can be recalled, engaging in warfare with Shinigami over the most coveted resource in any realm: the human soul. But, at some point, a question always rears its ugly head up and screams for an answer. That question is "Why?". At a certain moment, a hollowbreed must face themselves and ask "Why am I fighting? What am I surviving for?" For some, that answer can be, quite simply, to be the best. If that's the case, Las Noches eagerly awaits you. If, on the other hand, your answer is anything else, than La Colonia exists for you.
Backed by neutralist principals and motivated by civility and luxury, La Colonia offers to its citizens the chance to be more than their base instincts tell them to be. But, of course, none of that can happen without hollowbreeds engaging together in civil manners. What's the draw in this? Power. No matter how powerful an individual gets, their power can only increase when they team up with another individual. For this reason, La Colonia fills the needs of most individuals within Hueco Mundo, and as such, welcomes from all corners of the desert.
However, and most importantly of all, La Colonia does not exist separately of Las Noches. The town was founded under the belief that civilization required more than one public domain, with Trade being a key motivator in remaining a peaceful national entity. During times of duress, any calls to arms issued by Las Noches will require every able-bodied individual inhabiting La Colonia to heed that call.
Officially modeled after a kasbah, La Colonia is a ringed desert fortress. Beginning with 40-foot ringed walls (as well as two double-swinging doors on the front and back wall), the total territory circumferences roughly 20 miles squared. Positioned on north, south, east, and west points, 100 foot tall towers stretch into the air, capped with watchstations and ominous panels stationed on the roof. Using a combination of deep ballast rods, stilts, and braces, the foundations of each structure is able to shift with the sand with no loss of integrity. Immediately inside the walls, a large area of land is reserved before the numerous dwellings and offices begin. The outskirts are home to those with larger land plots, spacing separating individual dwellings and giving inhabitants room to build. Closer to the center of the Kasbah, dwellings are concentrated into more generic, modular units. Placed in the exact center of the town is one of the largest offices, ‘La Fragua’. This smelter and force combo is essential to the town’s continued growth.
The Means of Production And Quality Control
The most notable structure within La Colonia’s walls is not a physical one, but a social one. Depending on a civilian’s particular power set, build, history, or just general skill-set, they will be capable of contributing to another’s needs in some way. It is through this action-driven bartering that grants one just about anything within the compound. Because the primary infrastructure of the town is constructed by Zettai, one must barter with him for larger accommodations and bigger lots.
As well as providing a citizen with other goods and services, your neighbours are also your local police force. If you require help of any means, if you are being wronged in any way, it is as easy as knocking on the nearest door belonging to a non-offender and alerting them of the situation. Because inter-citizen violence is otherwise unallowed, this gives the requested individual every permission necessary to let loose. Even abuse of this clause is enough reason to invoke it, giving every incentive to not.
Of course, if an incident were to rise too large for this method to remain adequate, the elite representatives and militia of La Colonia may be called in to provide final judgement and execution of sentencing. These individuals are referred to collectively as the Cuchillo; they are La Colonia’s Knives in the same vein as Las Noches’ Swords.
