Current Base GP: 2,300 Current Masteries: Blut Vene Desired Masteries Blut Vene GM Last Mastery Request:Here
Beyond Going from here Sasha starts to explore the other side of Blut and how to play it off each other in order to get the best results during a fight. Gradually the switching between the two types becomes more natural. During a show off with a Shinigami she automatically uses the right Blut depending on the situation. Angry lashing out brings forth Arterie, a block or potential damage calls upon Vene. By now her body feels on a fundamental level what it needs to go forth and the reishi inside of it actively switch accordingly.
With the technique ingrained in her body and responsive on an instinctual level, she pushes it a bit further. Trapped in the Black Coffin by a monsterous Shinigami, Sasha sees no other solution but to try the impossible as the pressure on every inch of her body grows. By breaking the reishi cycle in her body into two separate ones, she briefly manages to use both Vene and Arterie in order to break free from the Coffin with her bare hands. With the Arterie being extinguished, she ends up with two shredded arms, but manages to protect the Blut cycle and therefore every other part of her body.
Note While I could write a couple of more scenarios on the same thing, I feel like these two topics show the progress she’s made from where she was last. They show her skill, creativity with the skill, and the willingness to use it even if it means taking a risk.
A very nice showcase of her work in expanding Vene into something truly unique and part of her on a fundamental level. It certainly helps that this is only your second mastery, but I thoroughly enjoyed Sakhalin. Chances are, even if this was a third (or maybe fourth) request, I'd still say this is a pretty solid go at it. After all, it takes guts to expand on a hardly used skill. But to also take it to the GM level? Certainly something to be envied among the quincy.
Seireitei is crumbling and the Gotei is a shell of its former self. Ravaged by the plague, the surviving Shinigami struggle to maintain the balance, but with so few of them left, the work is taxing and their fortress-city has fallen to neglect. Spread thin across all fronts, their diminished presence has been noted by friend and foe alike.
The Arrancar have rebuilt Las Noches and are rallying. The throne remains empty, but self-styled Espada have risen up from among them and are vying for control, each one endlessly testing the others’ weaknesses. Too evenly matched for any one of them to claim the crown, they bide their time, waiting for the opportune moment.
On Earth, all seems well—but there is a war being fought in the shadows as the mortals find themselves lacking the protection they once had and so sorely need. The Quincy, having realized the oppressive specter of the Shinigami is no more, are flourishing, and are fighting the Hollow-breeds with renewed vigor.
