Kovács is a Hungarian male in his early 30s. He is a man of average height and rather slender build. He has medium length light blonde hair which he styles in a braid worn to the left side of his face. The colour of his eyes is blue. The features of his face are somewhat effeminate, and he often wears light make-up. Furthermore, he has a number of various earrings and a single piercing in his nose.
Ákos wears a double-breasted variant of the standard Sternritter uniform with a plethora of vivid adornments.
Kovács is a feminine and flamboyant person. He pays a great deal of attention to his appearance and the way the others perceive him. He highly admires the aesthetic of the Wandenreich. Conversely, he deems Shinigami "ugly" and Hollows are outright disgusting to him.
He intends to spread his own beauty throughout the Spiritual Realms. This involves combating the enemies of the Wandenreich. In battle he has a marked tendency to avoid excessive effort. In addition, he habitually employs the power of his Schrift in a spectacular fashion with the aim to overcome and impress his opponents at the same time. Moreover, he seems overconfident and easily offended.
Quincy Cross: Ákos is equipped with a Quincy cross in the shape of Kolovrat that is integrated into a ring on his right ring finger. He uses it to summon his spiritual weapon.
Bankai Stealing Device: A seal that takes the form of a simple badge, developed by the Wandenreich as a way to counteract the ultimate weapon of any Shinigami. On average they are believed to be able to capture any Bankai that emits a spiritual wavelength above a certain point. The lower that wavelength, the more difficult it is to capture the weapon. In addition to the requirement of a high enough spiritual signature, those who had achieved Bankai Mastery or had an otherwise perfect bond with their Zanpakutō were incapable of having their Bankai stolen. As a member of the Sternritter, Ákos carries one of these Medallions.
Seele Schneider (魂を切り裂くもの (ゼーレシュナイダー), Zēreshunaidā; German for "Soul Cutter", Japanese for "That Which Slits the Soul"): A thin silver-coloured tool with a small rectangular hook on the bottom, large enough to fit a single finger, is a weapon used by the Quincy that bears great resemblance to a sword when activated, in particular by generating a beam of spiritual energy that takes the shape of a blade, but is in fact a very powerful arrow. The Reishi that makes up the glowing blue blade of a Seele Schneider travel at an amazing speed, making three million round trips across the edge per second. The vibrations generated by this are not only meant for cutting, but also to weaken the bonds between the spiritual energy of whatever it happens to cut thus making them easier for a Quincy to capture. A battle for the Quincy is one of gathering surrounding Reishi to use as a weapon making the Seele Schneider the most potent manifestation to this principle. Its functionality as a spiritual weapon makes it better against those who are physically powerful as spiritual impact will always over power a physical impact of equal strength.
Powers and Abilities
Master Marksman: He displays masterly skill in the art of archery. His high accuracy, the ability to sustain protracted barrages of fire and ways in which he can manipulate the spiritual arrows combine to make for a dangerous ranged combatant.
Keen Intellect: Although obfuscated by his flamboyance and frivolous attitude, Kovács is a person of above average intelligence. Thus, he might be able to surprise an unsuspecting opponent with casual displays of respectable tactical acumen.
Spiritual Awareness: The ability to sense spiritual energy and perceive spiritual beings is a rare skill that primarily manifests in Humans after long exposure to a quantity of spiritual energy above a certain point. Most, if not all Quincy, are born with hightened spiritual awareness and Kovács is one of them.
Great Spiritual Power: The spiritual power of High-Spec Humans, even Quincy, is typically much smaller than their spiritual counterparts but it is not a state that is set in stone as made clear by the sheer power presented by Wandenreich's Sternritter who were clearly on par, if not above, Shinigami Captains in strength. Ákos boasts spiritual power of a Captain-class spiritual being. The colour of his Reiatsu is jasmine.
Reishi Absorption & Manipulation: All spiritually powerful beings utilise Reiryoku when fighting, but they are also paired with secondary aspects in order to create entirely divergent fighting styles and unique abilities. In the case of the Shinigami, they use the spiritual energy generated from their soul alongside a Zanpakutō to combat their enemies; essentially a power from within themselves. In direct contrast the Quincy draw in Reishi from the environment around them in order to form weapons and empower various techniques; a power garnered from the outside. They absorb this energy into their bodies and shape it according to their whims to devastating effect.
The Glow (輝く, Kagayaku): The Schrift bestowed upon Kovács grants him photokinesis, that is the ability to manipulate light for a variety of purposes. This includes illuminating the area to the point of blinding the enemies, significantly enhanced control over the Heilige Pfeile, or unleashing an outburst of bright energy from his body. This power substantially boosts the ordinary Quincy techniques in Ákos's arsenal.
Hirenkyaku Expert (飛廉脚, lit. "Flying Screen Step/God Step"): An advanced Quincy technique, it is essentially the Quincy variant of the Shinigami Shunpo and the Arrancar Sonído. It is utilised by generating Reishi beneath the feet of the user and then riding the flow to their intended destination. Those who use it do not actually appear to be moving and instead simply appear at each location they travel to, which makes it seem like teleportation. Kovács's speed and agility are average for a Captain-class combatant.
Szikra (輝き, Kagayaki; Hungarian and Japanese for "Sparkle"): The spiritual weapon of Ákos assumes the form of an elaborate bow in the shape of the Kolovrat. It has an ivory colour with gold outlines that glitter under the right lighting.
Yifahiel (イェファハエル, Yefahieru; "Resplendence of God"):
