"Fear is necessary for evolution. The fear that one could be destroyed at any moment. Thank you, Gin. Thanks to your efforts, I have finally risen to an existence that surpasses both Shinigami and Hollow."
This article, Verale, is currently under active construction by the author(s) of whom this article's property falls under.
Verale (バーレイル, Bareiru) is a male Misute. He is an elite member of the small army assembled by Hikari Maebure.
Verale appears as a tall male of indeterminate ethnicity. Fairly muscular, he seems to be rather top-heavy and his arms are noticeably longer than normal. He has a tan complexion. His knuckles, forearms, elbows and chest are covered with bony protrusions. Furthermore, he has no hair on his body, not even eyebrows or eyelashes. His red eyes are set wide apart, and he has sharp teeth.
Even though he wears the trousers and boots of the standard Misute robes, he keeps his upper body exposed, with no garments whatsoever.
Powers and Abilities
Master Unarmed Combatant: Verale does not carry any spiritual weapon. As a result, he must rely on his own body. He is a very skilled unarmed combatant who displays a somewhat acrobatic fighting style. Leaps and spins are frequent, and he tends to overwhelm his opponents with series of ultra-fast punches. Verale is capable of sustaining an oppressive assault and defending himself from various forms of attacks. He relies mostly on his muscular arms, whereas the legs are merely his means of travel most of the time.
Immense Strength: To supplement his melee-oriented fighting style he boasts substantial physical strength.
Formidable Durability: In addition, his body is quite tough. He might withstand direct hits with moderately powerful techniques and show little sign of damage.
Staggering Speed & Reflexes: Verale is fast and nimble even without the use of his Tōtoi Gisei.
Immense Spiritual Power: Verale boasts tremendous spiritual power, which rivals that of veteran Shinigami Captains. His spiritual pressure has a tomato tint. It appears as a significantly condensed, distinct aura.
The Attrition (消耗, Shōmō): The signature ability at Verale's disposal revolves around the notion of erosion through application of force. The power manifests as the ability to manipulate friction. Verale can increase and decrease the force resisting the motion of various surfaces with his will. Such ability has a number of potential applications. For instance, he might vastly enhance his movement speed by removing the friction from wind and augmenting the friction between his feet and a surface to gain extra traction. Furthermore, he might attach himself to any surface. Physical attacks performed with the use of this power are not only considerably faster, but also more damaging due to the increased friction on the point of contact. Last, but not least, Verale can employ his Tōtoi Gisei for the purpose of defence. When the friction of his body is reduced to minimum, most forms of attacks simply slide off him harmlessly. It should be noted that the number of objects he might influence with the power at the same time is limited and the ability requires focus.
