Redención Mandíbula (レデンシオン・マンディブラ, Redenshion Mandibura; Spanish for Jaws of Redemption) is an Arrancar and was previously Arrancar #28 of Sōsuke Aizen's Arrancar Army. he is a patrol soldier of the Wandenreich. His partner is Cielo Nocturno.
Redención is a man of average height appearing to be in his late 20's, having a muscular, toned physique which accentuates his high level of physical fitness and a ever so slightly pale skin complexion. His facial features are sharp and intimidating, having a sharp and strong jawline and a long nose, he has medium length messy matte black hair which often gives a weathered and wild look to the Arrancar, finally Redención's eyes are a distinctive golden yellowish colour. After his battle with Wu Lanfen, Redención's left arm was destroyed during the battle, leaving him only with his right arm and a stump of a left arm.
The remnants of his hollow mask are covering his left eye, with the remnants being that of the eye socket and the surrounding parts of the mask. The eye socket of the mask is completely circular, the inside is dark and seemingly has no eye, it has 3 blue stripes circling the eye socket, his hollow hole is located on the left side of his chest, where the heart is normally located.
Redención (and Cielo) wears a modified variation of the typical Arrancar Hakama, wearing a long sleeved white jacket instead of the normal uniform while keeping the bottom half of his uniform looking akin to the typical uniform, after his battle with Wu Lanfen, a sleeve of his uniform had been torn off from the attack that took off Cielo's left arm.
Redención is exceptionally bloodthirsty and violent, he typically wants the stronger opponent so he can show off his power and then devour the soul of his opponent.
He has a rough but obviously strong relationship with his ally Cielo Nocturno, the duo constantly either get into petty arguments or agree with each other, usually against another who has opposed their opinion, while Nocturno seems to be the leader of the two they never share any formalities between each other and act more like friends than allies. Despite their constant clashes they work well together and are able to trust each other.
While outwardly rude and cocky, Redención is able to some extent, understand the situation he's in and act appropriately to it, being able to calm himself somewhat in the presence of his opponents. Also, while not particularly smart, Redención on rare occasions is capable of some impressive wit and is able to surprise opponents with his words and actions, however most of the time he lets his emotions run rampant, causing him to make mistakes.
Cielo and Redención have a very odd relationship with Roshan Bamshad. The two Arrancar often converse with the Quincy with an air of sarcastic respect and admiration, which Roshan himself reciprocates. Due to their abstract similarities the 3 of them get together surprisingly well, often exchanging small talk with sarcastic remarks interjecting in at random moments.
Powers and Abilities
Expert Swordsman: Redención is an extremely skilled and proficient swordsman, his skill in swordsmanship is very much akin to an experienced Lieutenant level opponent and potentially matching the skills an average Captain leveled opponent, being able to clash frequently and evenly with most opponents he comes across. Redención's style of swordplay is extremely unorthodox and unpredictable, as the Arrancar often doesn't assume any conventional stance, instead he often let's his arms hang, having a relatively loose grip on his Zanpakutō and looking relaxed and ready to react at any movement, however despite his seemingly relaxed fighting stance Redención can swing to being very aggressive, attacking with oddly angled, but powerful and fast strikes, while also being able to slide past opponents at a moments whim. However, while a very adaptive fighting style Redención's performance often suffers the longer he goes on in a fight or after a long time fighting, with his attacks being less aggressive and with him being less relaxed and more tense.
Expert Hand-to-Hand Combatant: Redención's hand to hand combat capabilities are quite extraordinary, with him being able to fight just as effectively without his weapon as he can with it, this is also supplemented by Redención's considerably strong Hierro, which can increase the force of impact from his punches or kicks. Redención's hand-to-hand fighting style is very much an extension of his swordsmanship style, with it being flowing and relaxed paired with strong, unorthodox strikes and sweeps, as such, Redención often uses his hand-to-hand combat prowess to create openings in his opponent's defence for his generally more powerful sword attacks. However, as is the case with his swordsmanship style, his performance tends to suffer somewhat the more worn out he is, although to a slightly lesser degree.
Enhanced Strength: As an Arrancar, Redención's strength is already enhanced to the point of his blows being very strong, however the Arrancar has expanded on his strength by training so that his attacks have more force and power behind them. His strength, paired with his almost beserker-eqse fighting style often overpowers unprepared opponents and is still able to pressure most others.
Enhanced Durability: Even for an Arrancar, Redención's durability and stamina are extremely high, with him being able to take many hits without tiring and still being able to take considerable amounts of punishment even after tiring. Redención's durability coincides with his strong Hierro as well, protecting him further and allowing him to keep fighting for a long time.
Sonído Expert: Redención's skill with Sonido is impressively quick, as he is able to keep up with Captain level opponents with relative ease and even keep up with much faster opponents with a fair amount of difficulty, occasionally losing sight of them. Redención generally uses his Sonido in combat, zipping around the combatants so that he can strike the less defended areas of their body quickly.
Hierro: As he is an Arrancar, Redención is able to use his Reiatsu as a coating of metal armour for his skin, increasing his durability by a great deal and allowing him to actually deflect otherwise dangerous weapons such as swords with ease. Redención's Hierro is unique in that it is incredibly more thick than that of an average Hierro, allowing him to take a rather insane amount of damage before any major injuries make themselves visible, however there is still a limit to his Hierro, and with a strong blunt force trauma attack or with a strong enough slash attack, Redención's Hierro can be bypassed.
Cero: As a Arrancar and by extension a Menos level Hollow, Redención is able to use the signature ability of his race, the Cero, to devastating effect, being able to cause heavy damage to most opponents who are unprepared for the dense beam of energy and still giving strong and prepared individuals visible injuries as well as physical strain. Redención'S Cero is the classic red colouration of the technique.
Bala: Redención, being an Arrancer, has access to Bala, a small orb of dense, Cero-like energy which can be fired with a punching motion, while the energy of a Bala isn't nearly as strong as that of a Cero beam, it travels at 20 times the speed of the beam attack and can be fired continuously due to it's lower energy consumption. Redención has used Bala to great effect, being able to damage and stun opponents so he can get an opening or so he can escape from an otherwise clingy opponent, his skill in the technique is so advanced that he has been able to create a customised variant of it.
Great Spiritual Power: Redención boasts of an incredibly high amount of Spiritual Power which is on a level to rival that of an average Shinigami Captain's Spiritual Power and withstand against the ancient Balancers of Souls, who naturally have incredibly large quantities of Spiritual Power. His spiritual power is red in colour.
Aniquilación (アニキラシオン, Anikirashion; Spanish for "Annihilation", Japanese for "Destruction"): When sealed, Redención's zanpakutō looks like a standard katana with a red hilt and a hexagonal tsuba.
The main boost of power Redención gets while in his Resurreción form is his massive increase in durability and stamina, while in this form Redención is able to take near ludicrous amounts of damage and still keep fighting, while also taking extended periods of time to tire out, being able to recover from insanely powerful attacks and still continue on defending with only major injuries.
