Esconder, came falling out of the Garganta that opened a few stories above Manhattan Beach. The crater from the large hollow's impact was created seconds later. Esconder had been running around HM's forest jumping from tree to tree when he had gotten into a massive fight with a few other hollow over who's territory the place was. One of them, a relatively small hollow compared to Esconder seemed to have some kind of weird power that had slammed him backwards into the Garganta. The garganta had been summoned by another hollow that Esconder had gladly thrown into a few trees before jumping after the smaller hollow.
The crater was a good twelve feet in diameter as Esconder was looking up at the sky. He took a second to get his bearings, but the people around him had already started running and screaming. He took a second, shaking his large head, and realizing that no one could see him before he screamed loudly in an annoyed voice at the people screaming. Though no one had heard the hollow, he had not and would not realize it as he scrambled, finally back in action to his feet and grabbed the nearest poor unfortunate soul and threw it against the ground and jumped up at the nearest building. He had mistaken the thing for the buildings in Hueco Mundo, which meant Arrancar. That means he had to smash them and bring them down on the weak hollow!
The poor soul had no idea what it was doing, but it managed to smash through a window, and jump into the third floor of the building and scream in anger and rage. Nothing could see him and his inability to understand just made him think everyone was scared and screaming. The hollow was afraid as all the humans running from the windows, walls, and places that the hollow stepped that simply seemed to slowly corrupt and change into a broken world. In fact, he had maybe even been more afraid than the people running and screaming. He scrambled away from the nearest human, jumping out another window.
The glass shattered as Esconder jumped all the way across the street to another building. The window blowing inside as he howled his foul hollow scream again and looked around. He had gotten lucky and jumped to an empty office, the loud sounds of the sirens heading his way was putting him off. The hollow looked back down to the city from the broken window, a second later he bolted, his exceptionally large frame smashing through the dry wall as he ran away from the loud noises.439
Walk of War Anywhere that Esconder steps, slowly corrupts into a war-torn wasteland. The ground slowly begins to crack and die, buildings that Econder stays in for multiple days begin to crumble and the plant life grows slowly over. Bullet holes, sword cuts, and craters will appear even if there is nothing to create them. This power starts out very slow, but the longer Esconder stays the more concentrated it becomes. Though, him getting mad and breaking things has roughly the same effect.
is this application finished? If so, please mark it as such. Before doing so, I must mention that your power won't fly: there's no such thing as a "Garganta Specialist". Your power is supposed to be a unique ability, generally not directly attached to a skill except the power skill that increases... well, the power's power.

[ ON THE SURFACE ]
Physical Description: Esconder is rather large. It stands at eight feet tall, weighs in at a decent three fifty and is surprisingly limber in its own way. It’s mask looks like it has a bowler hat attached to it and its overall appearance is very primate. Esconder’s hands are large, and elongated to match its bipedal look but still have some discrete length issues that make them not appear human. Esconder’s hollow hole is located just below its neck, it is large enough to shove its massive fist through if it ever decided to try. Esconder harbors green skin over a massive amount of tissue scarring and damage that was accumulated before its regeneration abilities kicked in. They range from slices, to holes from Quincy arrows to even old sore scarring.
Spiritual Description: Esconder’s reiatsu just feels like a big monster. When it exercises power it simply screams really loudly, and proceeds to hit something until it can eat or kill whatever it was that it was after. If it had to have a color per say it would actually be a lighter shade or blue or green. It isn’t really a feeling of malice so much as a territorial altercation. Esconder is an animal and so it’s reiatsu feels territorial and challenging.
[ BEHIND THE EYES ]
Personality: There was no real dominant hollow in the formation of Esconder, and because of this Esconder’s personality is a rather simple and animalistic. Esconder hunts in its area, and it usually moves from place to place while seeking to establish hunting dominance. Beings on its territory that openly challenge or defy Esconder usually find themselves being growled at and sternly asked to leave, with a fist and lots of property destruction. Esconder is actually unsure why it had no real dominant personality or hollow ability when it became an Adjuchas. Though, it might be possible it was a killer or some other kind of sociopath or being raised by animals, or maybe even an animal itself.
Beings that get in Esconder’s way usually end up being swung at angrily. Though Esconder does not openly kill for no reason, it seems to enjoy challenges and attacking things that are bigger than itself. Esconder thinks that showing weakness will let others walk all over it, the hollow world is very power biased and Esconder utilizes its size and brutishness to attack and intimidate, like most animals do. Finally, while not very “intelligent” Esconder talks in third person, in usually monosyllabic words when it does talk. Though, most of the time this is not one of its strong characteristics.
Goals & Achievements: Esconder has a few very specific goals. As its personality and mindset are rather limited, as well as its ability to speak or portray information, what it wants is an animalistic as it is. -Have Esconder’s own hunting ground- Esconder wants to have a large area dedicated to its territory, and if he has to migrate for a while to find it. He will. -Arrancar Hatred- Esconder doesn’t particularly like Arrancar. Esconder thinks they are hollows who weren’t animal enough to continue being hollow because it’s not quite sure what they are. -Good Fights- Esconder must have a few vikings in it somewhere cause good fights tend to make it happy. To the point where Esconder does not enjoy killing things that have put up a fight. After all, if he can get another one, then why not. -Top of the Food Chain- Esconder wants to be the top of the food chain and is willing to intimidate, bludgeon and brutalize its way there.
[ GUARDIAN ANGEL ]
Power: Cornered Animal Esconder gets passive bonuses the more enemies are near him. He revels in fighting destroying things. Every enemy that joins the fray makes him more ferocious and that much more hell-bent on winning and showing all of them their place under his feet.
Aspect of Death: Destruction Louis Vivet died due to self-destructive and violent tendencies while suffering from dislocative identity disorder. He was the basis for many split personalities in modern and classic literature, including(but not limited to) Dr. Jekyll and Mr Hyde.
[ LEGACY CREATED ]
Origin: For those that actually cared to look into his primary soul, Esconder was born Louis Vivet. He suffered from traumatic abuse in his early childhood that lead to him suffering from a second, more violent personality. This personality was studied by a number of great writers and scientists of the late eighteen hundreds and was the basis for many poems and writings. He died broken, and alone. Louis floated around a bit as he waited for a shinigami to send him on but never seemed to be the one that they were sending off to a better life. Eventually his chain corroded and he became a large, muscular hollow with little to no actual thought process. He spent a good fifty years hunting souls, though he preferred to eat other hollow simply to show dominance and stay on top of the group. Eventually, like most other hollow, he outgrew his small frame and joined thousands of others in a cocoon under the the windy desert of Hueco Mundo.
They may have been forced together by an Arrancar, or maybe a more powerful hollow, but the actual reason remains as lost to time. When the Gillian that would become Esconder was finally “born” for lack of a better term, it was manipulated by groups of more powerful hollows. After all, there’s one born every second. Esconder was no different as a mindless Gillian. It would rescue more powerful hollow and randomly look through portals that it was told to to prove support by simply being a giant pest. Animal instincts kept the Gillian on its toes, or lack of them, by constantly muscling and bullying other Gillian when hollows of greater power were in need of assistance and its lack of forethought allowed it to be easily driven in specific direction.
Rise to Power: Esconder went into the second cocoon following the explosion in Karakura City. The resonance from the numerous Arrancar and hollow that occurred during the power plays in Las Noches and Hueco Mundo may have been the reason for the reishi in the air becoming thicker and more generous. These changes in the climate, made for the ideal conditions of evolution for Esconder that lead to the hollow surrounding itself in compressed Reishi after burrowing slightly below the surface of Hueco Mundo and binding itself in power. Over the next two years it would shed off its excess “weight” and find itself in a much more compact soul and embodiment of spiritual energy. When it finally awoke, it had gained more animalistic tendencies and only really lost its large stature. Though, it still remained rather large.
Call to Action: Running away is a natural thing. Esconder is a relatively new Adjuchas, and even more so happens to solve all of its problems simply and naturally. If something is stronger, run away, if something is weaker, beat it into submission if it does not understand its place on the food chain. When it emerged from under the sand of Hueco Mundo Esconder found that it was rather decent at opening portals at its whim. A few of its base hollows must have already had the ability to form Garganta and so it quickly found its way to Earth and began setting up its own hunting grounds. Though Esconder’s true calling was the first time it ran into an Arrancar while being “Esconder”. To the newly born Esconder, Arrancar seem to be hollow that did not realize how to be hollow so they became partially shinigami or something. Esconder was never one for descriptions besides the fact that it thought the Arrancar was out of its mind for no longer being a hollow. Unfortunately, it did not win that altercation as it could not correctly judge the strength of an Arrancar. Esconder blamed it, with its limited thought process on the fact that it had never met an Arrancar before. It still believes that as an animal, it was better at being a Hollow and it has plans to show them all that first hand. Then it will claim all of their territory for itself.
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.
