The Hollow Witch, Arrancar ChemistRank:
No official rankingAspect of Death:
Erith is, without a doubt, a beautiful woman. Her skin is fair and clear, due to time she spends in her lab, and her height is only around 5'1. Though rather short, she has a curvy but toned hourglass figure. Given thick black hair and blue-green colored eyes, Erith has a 'bewitching' quality to her since even if she has the lingering smell of chemicals on her, there is a certain smell to her that can be alluring. This is attributed to her aspect of death. Even though she isn't very vain with her appearance, she likes to wear deep red lipstick which makes the fairness of her skin stand out even more. Her uniform resembles a short sleeved dress that ends at her mid-thigh, and she wears typical Arrancar styled boots. Over this attire, she is rarely ever seen without her lab coat and black gloves. Her hollow fragment is plating around her throat that resembles a choker, with her hollow hole also close to her throat. Personality:
As a true practitioner of science, Erith has little restriction to just how far she would go in her various experiments and projects. She has certain limits, as she doesn't care much for experimenting on the living, and has morals to the point where she would never hurt children for example. Other than this, she has almost an unhealthy obsession with her work. She has gone as far as to experiment on herself, forcing herself to become immune to every toxin and poison known by subjecting her body to it. There have been several times where she puts herself through so much pain she can barely move from the floor. She refuses to let her body ever 'betray' her, or at least that is her explanation for doing the things she does to herself. Despite not liking to experiment on live subjects, she will not hesitate to do so on her enemies once captured and defeated. She has a strange mindset of disregarding them as individuals. She also has a morgue in her lab housing several dead bodies. Several are dead hollows she collected and preserved. However there are some bodies she collected from other places that are most definitely not hollows. Her best field of science however is toxicology. She excels in creating toxins, poisons, and dangerous serums that can benefit or cause anguish to whoever they are administered to. She has earned the nickname the Hollow Witch, and the Arrancar Chemist for these reasons.
Her goals is to push Arrancar biology to the very limit, and possibly continue to push even further. The experiments she has done on herself aides her in this goal, and the toxins she develops is to designed to bring down anyone she deems her enemies. With her intellect and twisted imagination, she has created several dangerous serums that make her a threat to take very seriously. Not to mention, she has before implanted microscopic bugs in people to gather data. Though, the bugs are harmless of course.
Pushing past the scientific side of Erith, she has a playful side to her. She has a open sense of humor, and has moments of being a bit dramatic in a comical way. She doesn't hesitate to make sassy or sarcastic comments, and often times she will take pleasure in ripping into anyone via words if they tick her off. As she is intelligent, she doesn't mind debates and inquiries over research or scientific concepts. However, she does not take insults to her research or those she cares for lightly. When this happens, she loses any control she had over her mouth. Erith also cares little for titles of any kind, as she could care less about rankings knowing that they could be deceitful.Quotes:"To say I am fascinated by the raw potential and nature of science is an understatement. To say I am obsessed is akin to a joke. When it comes to my work...I am utterly bewitched by it."
"Bewitchment is when you are fascinated with something to the point where you don't notice the dangers slowly entrapping you. Similar to a poisoned knife. You are so focused on the fight and just stopping the bleeding that you don't notice the poison flowing through your veins until it is too late.""Why don't I experiment on living subjects more often? Easy. There is no value to it. I admit, I am twisted and not a pleasant woman in the lab. However, it would be degrading to my intelligence for me to experiment on a subject who isn't capable of defending themselves. Do I look like Mayuri Kurotsuchi, who had regularly abducted civilians from the districts in Soul Society? Or on his own people without permission? I don't need to sink that low to gain ground in my research."
"My work will make sure the Arrancar are never stepped on again."Abilities/Powers:Cero:
Erith is quite exceptional when it comes to using cero. Like her reishi, it comes off as purple and is powerful enough to cause severe damage. She likes to use it when she doesn't feel like drawing her blade and getting up close, which is her usual fighting style.Bala:
Erith has only ever used bala once or twice her entire life. So it is safe to say her balas are pitiful.Sonido:
Her sonido is quite fast, and she has done modifications to herself so that her sonido speed is increased. She uses it when she needs to get close to her opponents, though she does not like using it excessively.Swordsmanship:
Erith's sword takes the form of a tanto. While quite short, she is very well skilled in it's use. Close combat is where she excels, using her short height to her advantage as she can get close quickly. Quick, short, and agile, she's a very hard target to hit.Toxins:
Erith has a number of her own created toxins at her disposal, most concealed in her clothing. Her most notable is her Hierro Melting serum that is capable of rendering Hierro useless, and her Sangre Fuego. When this one is administered and then has a wound exposed to open air (oxygen), then it sets the blood on fire and by extension, the body.Resurreccion:
"Break the Silence, Hechicera." A eerie purple fog envelops her form, and when it disperses it reveals her form. She is a haunting figure to behold when in this form, and displays a unsettling level of malevolence.Grito Espectral:
Her favorite ability, Erith is capable of emitting a powerful sonic scream that can shake the earth around her and burst the eardrums of those unlucky enough to be around her. She can use a weaker version of this in her base state, but when released it is considered powerful to the point where she can't use it's full power near Las Noches.Balada De Sombra:
Using her own reishi, she creates shadowy creatures with long spidery legs and claws that can rip a man in two with ease. She is oddly affectionate with them. When not attacking, they tend to curl or hover around her as if some twisted form of a guard dog.Corte Malvado:
A shadowy tendril sweeps the area around her, lashing anyone hit by it as if they had been struck by a sword. Hechizar:
She has to get close to use this, but purple smoke dances around her fingers as she sends it into her opponent's brain through either their mouth, nostrils, eyes, or all three. As if she cast a spell over them, her opponent is under her control. Often times she will use this technique to have them kill off their comrades before ending their life herself. It is limited to only one person at a time, but this is still a technique to be wary of.Extra Info:
- Erith, before coming to Las Noches, traveled with Jaidon Alionae and Minisa De Luca. The amount of loyalty and care she has for them is tremendous. If anything were to happen to the both of them, it can be theorized she would snap and turn into someone more crueler and less empathetic than her original self.
- She used to wear three purple lines underneath one of her eyes, vaguely resembling the Awen symbol that meant "poetic inspiration." It is a nod to how dedicated she is to her work, and how easily she is inspired to work on a new idea or theory. She rarely wears it now.
- A part of her wishes for an apprentice, or a student of some kind. She doesn't understand this urge at all, and won't speak of it to anyone in fear of looking weak.
- She is secretly working on a serum designed to stop Soul Reapers from being able to use their zanpakuto for a short amount of time. She doesn't trust Soul Society at all, and will not hesitate to use her creations on them if they show any signs of wanting to attack Hueco Mundo.
