All in all, Lucy is a rather tall and a very beautiful woman with a lean and yet strong bodybuild from years upon years of endless training. Her womanly curves give nothing after, making her very pleasant to look at. Her hair which seems to be constantly on fire from the intense coloring, frames her delicate and smooth skinned face. Her eyebrows are high and well arched which gives Lucy an intelligent look, and her rather big and almond shaped eyes seem to glow from an inner fire. Usually then her full lips are parted in a smile which reveals a row of sparkling white teeth. Her small nose gets sometimes wrinkled a bit if the red head is displeased.
Her clothing would be described as slightly scandalous for those faint of heart, even if it does it's job of shielding her private parts and more. Lucy tends to say that it's better to fight with light clothing, and nothing that can get in the way of moving freely. (See spoiler for clothing and overall appearance.)
Lucy is a pretty calm and strong willed personality which has a playful and yet mean side to her. She's far from being shy, and not afraid of voicing out her opinions in the needed situations. She's mostly nice but rather pushy when it comes to her fraccion, and is also rather protective when it comes to him even if she would never admit to that. She dislikes people butting into her business and mostly ignores or hisses at those which do it in the first place, even if she herself tends to be rather curious about others. It's impossible to get her ticked off with insulting words or small actions like that. Rather one would have to either try to kill her without a good reason, invade her personal space in a very rude manner or attack her fraccion. Lucy is very good at making others think she's very busy, while she's a master at sneaking away from boring duties and finding a quiet place where she can rest. It often comes in her fraccion's part to then find her and try to make her do what is needed to do. It is not known if Lucy is particularly afraid of something special, as she rarely lets anyone see a weaker side of herself.The playful side of Lucy:
Lucy says herself that she has a very rich humor. And in a way that is correct, although her jokes usually tend to be at the expense of others. There is not a situation she could not make endless jokes about, even if she sometimes tries to just keep the jokes inside of her own head. However weird it might be to see the 8th Espada start laughing all of the sudden out of nowhere, and then choose to rather walk away without explanation instead of bothering to share what was so funny. She also -loves- to come with sarcastic comments. It's a hobby of Lucy's to tease her fraccion, wether to make him all worked up or feel very embarrassed. It's fair to say that the red head has a good imagination when it comes to keeping her fraccion on his toes. The daydreamer and lazy side:
It's not uncommon at all to encounter the fiery red haired Espada lying on a random couch while staring at nothing in particular, and having a mysterious smile playing over her lips. She loves daydreaming and thinking deeply about anything that comes to mind, however silly it might be. She does not appreciate the least being bothered when doing so, but can remain still at the same place for hours while entertaining her own mind with tons of thoughts. Most often it ends with her taking a very nice nap. As said before then she could be described at somewhat lazy, but it's mostly just her fraccion that is able to see that side of her. When needed to be, Lucy is very hard working and thorough with whatever she does... it just has to spark her interest so that she will start working on it.Her temper:
However calm Lucy seems to be most of the time, then it would be wise not to provoke her anger. Her ususally rich brown colored eyes start shooting blazes at the person in question, and depending on who it is she will attack with murder in mind. If the one in question would be someone of a higher rank which she is bound to respect, then Lucy will think up a way to get back at him/her. No matter how long it will take for the revenge to take place, she will never forget someone that has provoked her anger. Usually it takes though some work to do that, as she seems pretty indifferent to most and is very good at ignoring people when she wishes by claiming that she "didn't hear them". It would be best for no one to speak badly of fire though, or put one out in front of her. Ever. Usually if that happens, the words following would be; "How dare you put out my FIRE!!!"
Before lots of crashing and banging would follow.Fighting style:
The 8th Espada focuses on a rather fierce and yet graceful fighting style, as she dances on the battlefield while using the agility and flexibility of a ballerina to do multiple slashes towards her opponents. Speed and power would be the best words to describe her attacking, as she usually refrains from giving the opponent any chance of gathering his thoughts and try to plan ahead in the battling. She rarely if ever underestimates her opponents, and it depends on their skills and what she learns from them if she starts using Cero or other attacks which do not consist of swordmanship or hand to hand combat. But if Lucy is greatly angered, she tends to loose a bit the control and aim to just.. eliminate her opponent.
Lucy can often be caught playing the cat and mouse game when fighting someone that's weaker than her, not entirely out of cruelty but also because of her curiosity when it comes to others. She likes poking and prodding here and there, with either words or weapons. See how far the person can go, find the weak spots, feel their slight despair. She rarely gets provoked into battles, and prefers most of the time not to kill her opponent unless ordered to do so. Or if the person -really- got on her nerves.
Teasing her fraccion.
Those that don't have a humor.
Lucy tends to laugh or smile out of nowhere, even in serious situations.
She hates uneven numbers.
She has this love of burning things. (an epic pyromaniac) Sexuality:
Guerrero [Warrior] Seal Description:
The sealed weapon of Lucy is a lengthy staff, or about 68 inches long (173 cm). It is good for use in defense and to rain blows upon the enemy as it's a fast and efficient weapon. But this staff is different from others, as it's a Double Katana Walking Stick. By pulling the two ends apart, there will be discovered a razor sharp katana sword in each hand. The staff itself has a high gloss black finish with ferocious dragons carved around each end, and each of the swords features a 24 inch (Around 61 cm) long blade.
Aspect of Death:
Quemar, Guerrero [Burn, Warrior]Element/Class type:
Two razor sharp and rather big swords form from the sealed weapon. Those swords are as different from each other as fire and ice. While the one in Lucy's right hand is a rather straight blade which is a bit wide near the hilt, having a sort of a hook coming out of it, and then narrows down until at the razor sharp tip. The hilt of that sword also has a hook at the back of it.
Now the sword in Lucy's left hand has a much more complex build, as the hilt is straight, but the blade itself has a fairly tricky shape. It goes rather wide close to the hilt, then narrows down until the middle where a gap comes into the blade. That gap is perfect for hooking the opponent's weapons. Now the blade then continues down and narrows until at the razor sharp tip. The back edge of the sword has also a rather odd form to it, along with 3 holes that form in the blade. It seems as if the construction of that sword was mainly done while having in mind most possible ways of trapping other weapons, or limbs of misfortunate people. Both those swords are about 34 inches long (86 cm). Around the blades of both the swords burns a constant fire.
((See spoiler for better and more detailed view of the swords.))
Lucy herself doesn't change much in appearance, besides her eyes turning as red as her hair and the remaining mask which forms the shoulder guards, crawls down and over her arms all the way to the fingertips and provides a good and flexible guard along with more strength and the ability to manipulate her arms in a more way than normally. There is fire burning also around Lucy's body, not only around the blades of her swords.
As with other Espada, her strength, stamina and speed all increase significantly.~Standard Techniques~Name:
High-Speed Regeneration (超速再生, Chōsoku Saisei; lit. "Ultra-Fast Regeneration")Description:
This is a supplementary ability possessed by many Hollows, as well as some Shinigami that have undergone Hollowfication. It allows them to recover from any damage that they sustain by causing them to heal at an increased rate, closing the wounds on their body and causing any limbs that they have lost to grow back. Despite the many benefits that it provides, most Hollows choose to abandon the ability to regenerate when they become Arrancar, in exchange for a greater amount of power. Regardless, when Arrancar use their Resurrección, their wounds heal away instantly.
While high-speed regeneration is indeed a powerful ability, it is not without its flaws. Despite the extent to which it can heal the body, internal organs such as the brain cannot be regenerated; if such irreparable damage is sustained, the rest of the body can continue to regenerate, though to no avail. In addition, if the body is damaged before it has the chance to heal, or if enough damage is inflicted on it at once, then it can be destroyed.Duration:

Bala (虚弾 (バラ), bara; Spanish for "Bullet", Japanese for "Hollow Bullet")Description:
Bala is an Arrancar-exclusive technique that hardens the user's Reiatsu and releases it like a swift blast of spiritual energy. While the technique is not nearly as powerful as a Cero, its speed is 20 times faster and allows for it to be fired in quick repetition. In addition, it possesses more concussive force than a Cero does. A Bala's speed and power varies with the Arrancar using it; Lucy's bala is used as a powerful kick.Duration:
: 2 posts.Name:
Cero (虚閃 (セロ), sero; Spanish for "Zero", Japanese for "Hollow Flash", Doom Blast in the Viz translation, "Empty Disaster" if the kanji is literally translated)Description:
Cero is a form of attack used by Menos, Arrancar and Visored. As a standard energy blast, it consists of firing a powerful blast of concentrated spiritual energy at the target. While in most cases it is fired from the mouth, some Arrancar and Visored are capable of firing Cero from their hands, fingers and other parts of their bodies. This often requires the user to under take a specific pose.
The power, force, speed, and blast area of the Cero is dependent on the strength of the user (i.e., the stronger the user, the stronger the attack), and there are some Arrancar and Visored who have come up with their own variation of Cero. The charging and firing time for Cero also varies greatly, from relatively charging fast to firing it to instantaneously fire one without much charging.
Lucy's Cero can be fired from her right pointer finger along with her right eye and hollow hole. It has a blood red color to it.Duration:
: 3 posts.Name:
Gran Rey Cero (Spanish for "Grand King Zero", Japanese for "Royal Hollow Flash")Description:
This is a Cero that only Espada are allowed to use. It is performed by mixing an Arrancar's own blood with the Cero. The result is a Cero with a much greater attack power and speed as well as a change of color unique to the Espada. It is also many times more powerful than a normal Cero, capable of disturbing the fabric of space, it also seems to spin like a razor upon release as it compresses and decompresses due to the sheer speed and raw power. It is a drastically potent Cero, used only by the Espada themselves. Lucy gathers the Gran Rey Cero in her right palm.Duration:
: 6 posts.Name:
Lucy tends to like using her swords mostly when fighting, and has accquired a great skill at the art of swordmanship. Duration:
Lucy's ability to detect and gauge the amount of Reiatsu in her vicinity is of a high skill, making her being able to guess very close to the rank of her opponents by looking at them or holding her palm to the earth. Duration:
Hierro (鋼皮 (イエロ), iero; Spanish for "Iron", Japanese for "Steel Skin")Description:
An Arrancar technique in which the user's reiryoku condenses, creating a steel-hard skin strong enough to block a Zanpakutō. This also allows them to fight some of the sword-wielding Shinigami barehanded. The strength of Arrancars' Hierro depends on their spiritual power.Duration:
Lucy has mastered the art of fighting with her staff throughout her many years of having it by her side. Duration:
Cool Down: Name:
From intense training which goes from running to endless fighting, Lucy is done training her body so that her agility and reflexes to the maximum, making it very hard if not impossible to land a lucky strike on her.Duration:
Immunity to fireDescription:
Due to her ability of consuming fire for her own benefit, and having fire as her element, then Lucy can withstand being in fire without seemingly bothered at all. However if there are fire attacks from Vasto Lorde or those of higher rank, then it would be pretty fair to say that Lucy would at least get singed and start thinking about BBQ.Duration:
From all the training and running around, Lucy has accquired a high stamina level making her being able to train for days if she wants to.Duration:
From snapping her fingers, Lucy can start a small flame which is just the same size as if she was holding a lighter. Very handy when you are a person that keeps losing things and are in the need for a light.Duration:
Cool Down:~Innate Techniques~
(Techniques almost exclusive to your character, NO MORE THAN 6 IN TOTAL, this includes resurrecion and out of resurrecion should you choose to have some not in resureccion))Name:
Lucy has the ability to be able to eat fire from the surroundings or from attacks of others and her own and use it to restore her reiatsu and to heal faster. It depends on the amount of fire and how strong it is how much she is able to heal or restore her reiatsu. A normal fire which she'd eat would only give about 10% of reiatsu and hurry the healing of minor wounds, while her own fire or the fire attack from someone strong would give her about 30 - 40% of reiatsu and allow her to grow missing limbs. And so on. If Lucy is critically injured, as in missing more than 50% of her body or has multiple organ damage it's just a matter of luck and the fire she eats if she can start healing fast enough to be able to survive. Duration:
2 posts if she ate a minimal amount and strength of fire, and 4 posts if she ate a big and stronger powered amount.Name:
Highly Improved SonidoUsage:(
The normal sonido speed would get doubled if not tripled up. Lucy can now travel fast enough to leave after-images which can confuse the opponent, and the movement is indeed so fast that the earth starts cracking under her feet. Very effective when up against an opponent that rivals Lucy's strength but wouldn't perhaps be able to keep up with her speed.Duration:
Double Gran Rey CeroUsage:(
Lucy raises her swords up in the air before slamming the blades together and grinding them against each other. As soon as the metals touch, a spark is formed which quickly channels into a large amount of energy which has the same strength as a Gran Rey Cero, but with the change that Lucy can fire 2 fiery red Cero's of that caliber at the same time by pulling her swords away from each other as soon as the Cero is done channeling up, and then pointing the tips of her swords in whichever directions she'd want to shoot them.Duration:
Can only be used once in each fight.Name:
Fire Drill SwordUsage:(
Lucy starts twisting her right arm like a screw, making it twist in 21 circles. As she then leaps towards the enemy, her arm unwinds, rotating the blade to form a drill that can penetrate any defense as long as it isn't much higher than Lucy's level. The fire around the blade keeps burning, making the flames move also in a drill-like motion, the searing heat adding to the damage of the attack. If this attack hits perfectly where it was aimed at then it -will- do damage, although that damage will depend on the Hierro rank of the opponent. So higher ranked Espada and opponents will also get severly damaged if their Hierro level isn't of an improved level.Preparation time:
1 post.Cool Down:
Lucy will put down her swords before channeling more fire and reiatsu into her hands. She then attacks the opponent head on and does a serie of punches. Each punch that lands has the same power as a normal Cero.Duration:
3 posts.Cool Down:
Master Ripple SwordUsage:(
The most advanced form of Ripple Sword, as Lucy is able to use 2 swords at the same time along with being able to manipulate the length of her arms thanks to her Resurreccion. By using the flexibility of her body and arms, she undulates her swords rapidly so that they resemble snakes. This makes her blows impossible to anticipate or block, although higher ranks such as Vasto Lorde and above them would probably not take long in being able to anticipate the movements. Duration:
Until she decides to stop herself.Cool Down:
Slowly, very slowly she looked around herself. As usually the air in Hueco Mundo was still, deadly still. But now it seemed filled with killing intent on every side. One could have said it even vibrated a bit, but of course only to those keen of senses. While running her almond shaped eyes over the surroundings, Lucy knew that it bothered her opponents just how carefree she was acting, but well could they really expect anything else when they were trying to mess with an Espada? Alright so... there are what.. 20 little mid-level adjuchas here which want to take me on..?
Her proud form was leaned casually against a dead tree as the red head stiffled a small yawn from the boredom of waiting for an attack. It would have been fun if her cute fraccion, Alaric, had been around so she could have him fight those small fries off. That would have given her the great opportunity to train him while at it, by butting into the fight herself and giving him some extra workout while giving the other hollows some aid. Boy am I sure that would have pissed them off... not that there is something unusual with finding pissed off hollows... but why? I mean.. they can totally just lounge somewhere and not have to do anything that's boring..
And besides, why were they even thinking about taking her on in the first place? Was it Insanity Day today, and Lucy hadn't gotten the notice?
"Listen here fellas."
Her slightly husky and soothing voice didn't carry any irritation to it, but rather a little bit of amusement. "As much as I looove to play around from time to time, then don't you think this is a bit optimistic of you guys? I should probably feel offended right now as a matter of fact."
She naturally didn't get any good answers, instead of some greedy and irritated growling while it seemed like those who had the idea of getting a good meal seemed to be thinking again about what they were doing. Gee, good timing to be doing that -now-.
Lucy's staff leaned casually against the tree, and her right arm was wrapped around it while a small smile started tugging the corners of her mouth upwards. "How about I go home and get my fraccion? You can play around with him a bit. No?"
Apparently that wasn't taken as a good idea and probably found quite offending, as the shrieks of 3 attacking adjuchas filled the air. Oh fine fine.
Deciding to give them a second glance, she wrinkled her nose a bit at their half-assed appearances. There was a mix of something that resembled a snake or an overgrown worm which was crawling towards her, an over-sized hog and finally a ... bird..thing? She wasn't sure what that was supposed to be. Now those 3 brave, or very stupid hollows, which had decided to take the lead in the attacking came at the red head with great speed (at least according to their books). To Lucy it was as if they were taking their time in this whole attacking process, making her wish she had brought a book with her on that random walk in the desert. "I knew I should have napped instead... but noooo of course there is never any peace for that."
Using her natural speed and agility, she stepped to the side and tried to hold back the small laughter when hearing the loud bang as the hog came into direct contact with the tree Lucy had been standing up against. There went 1 little piggy..
His irritated shrieks cut through the air while he started trying to pull his head out from the tree trunk. "Oh for Heavens sakes, just stay still there."
Her right foot came into direct contact with the hollow's behind, sending it through the tree instead of just silencing it. "You're welcome!"
Her staff was still hugged against her body, and now she stepped to the side and used the end of the weapon to trip over the adjucha which she wasn't sure if was supposed to be a breed of a chicken and a cat. Oh? Maybe they do learn?
With a single eyebrow raised, she watched as the worm thing had stopped and was seemingly a bit worried about what would be happening next. "Well, the least you other guys could do was lend him some help ya know. It's not nice to keep the poor thing alone in the spotlight."
You could never count on other hollows when it came to back up. Nasty little things they usually turned out to be! But her words seemed to have helped the situation a bit as with that, a new roars filled the air. A whole group was now coming towards the Espada, but then the group seemed to decide to split up and attack from two sides. You have -got- to be kidding me.. "Hey wanna dance a bit?"
Jumping up into the air, she looked below her to see the first few hollows clash together, before Lucy threw her staff down into the ground as she landed next to a rather big and hulky adjucha. "I'm fond of some tango, but if you want to waltz.. well then too bad. Oh and also, I prefer to lead if you don't mind."
Grabbing onto the unfortunate adjucha's arms, while starting to hum loudly a random song which she found appropriate for her "tango", Lucy started the "dance". The adjucha got swung around, while letting out protesting sounds as Lucy used it to beat up the rest of the group in each step of their fun dancing. It's eyes were soon spinning in it's head from the dizzyness along with all the beating up it had received from making contact with the others. "And 1, 2, 3 good good! You are doing great!"
She twirled the 2 meters tall adjucha, before ending her humming song with a very professional spin. And of course she "accidentally" lost her grip on the flailing hollow, sending it flying a couple of meters away. "Eh sorry about that. Thanks for the dance." Wait .. does he even hear me from that distance? "Uh nevermind that!" And again.. he probably doesn't hear that. Not that he'd really care anyways.
Shrugging it off, she looked around to see where her weapon had landed.
The staff got retrieved by a smiling Espada before she turned and looked at the hollow tetris she had apparently been trying to make. "Now if you guys want to play again, then let's meet up after a few days. That is if I don't forget. And keep up the dancing! I'm sure we'll be able to learn some new moves next time we meet, ok?" I'm thirsty now.. oh! I want a margarita!
Whistling a light tune, Lucy started to walk back towards where she had come from while pondering just why she hadn't taken Alaric with her. Perhaps he was searching for her right now? Oooh well he knew she liked playing hide and seek when not in the mood for her daily chores, so he'd just have fun.
