Rachel is Bount girl with long blond hair tied into two long pigtails with two black ribbons, and red eyes. She wears black Lolita fashion with red ribbon bow tie, red bat symbol design cross her front to the back on her dress, red cross on her shawl and bottom half, high heel black boots with red cross, and red ribbon on her left leg. She hides a pair of red, bat like wings capable of flight near the back of her dress. Personality
Rachel Alucard is the current head of the Alucard family, and the stereotypical aristocratic heiress. She has an almost enchanting air of dignity and grace, yet is sarcastic and condescending to those she considers lower than her, always expecting them to have the highest standards of formality when conversing with her. Despite this, she does care deeply for her allies. Her butler, Valkenhayn, is fervently devoted to Rachel, as he was a loyal friend and respected rival to her father, the late Clavis Alucard. Rachel's Doll, Nago and Gii, despite taking punishment from her on a regular basis, remain loyal to her. Perhaps her most intriguing relationship is with her long time rival. Although Rachel would never admit to it, she secretly loves him for his determination and unwillingness to give up even when the odds are against him.
Strangely, Rachel harbors no hatred for Shinigami, despite witnessing first hand their destructive ways and the slaughter of her own kind. She has learned over the years to judge a person by their individual values and morals, rather than categorize a group of people as a whole. While she has avoided Shinigami in the past, Rachel is now intent on negotiating with them, in order to reach an understanding between the two races. She believes cooperation to be the key to maintaining order, and that the Shinigami cannot do it themselves.
In battle, Rachel retains her condescending behavior, always having a sarcastic or rude comment to taunt her opponent. Once the fighting has actually begun, however, all gloves are off and she holds nothing back. Rachel will use any tactic to tax and wear out her opponent, preferring not to fight directly against stronger opponents, but rather to wear them out before moving in to deliver the coup de grace. Nevertheless, she would never use a dirty trick such as taking hostages. History
Rachel Alucard was born into a rich family in her native homeland of Britain. As a child, she was taught the value of good manners and respect, taught never to show contempt to any person unless it could be portrayed in a civilized manner. She was discouraged from fighting, and instead, learned to use negotiation as her tool in order to get what she wanted. This made her well liked by her peers, who grew to respect her as an intellectual. She was an appreciator of the fine arts and poetry, often spending her spare time writing her own poetry, or reading a fine book while enjoying a glass of wine. When her parents died when she was twenty one, Rachel inherited their estate, and she ran it quite well. She dealt with merchants, artists, nobility, and even royalty on occasion, ensuring her wealth and well being...or so she thought.
One evening, when Rachel was twenty three, there was an incident in her town, where people reported seeing strange lights and Rachel herself was witness to one of these lights. It made contact with the British noble's soul, which was transformed that night. Much to her surprise, Rachel had taken the characteristics of an Immortal, as her aging had stopped from that point forward. Over the years, not many people took notice, not even she. However, as time progressed, it became apparent that Rachel was no longer mortal. Rumors that she was a "Night walker" surfaced, and her knack with negotiations and charming over others was some sort of vampiric charm. Before her fate could be decided by the villagers, however, Rachel fled the country, leaving everything behind save enough money to fund her travels.
It was on the road that Rachel met several other Bount, Bount that Ran'Tao had managed to contact to form a community. Told of this new collection of people like her, Rachel was glad to have a place to belong again, even if she was separated from her riches and works of art. When she arrived, Rachel was appointed as one of the community leaders, in charge of dissolving disputes and negotiating compromises between the Bount themselves. It was a difficult job, but one she was suited for. The community did not last as long as she had hoped, however. The Shinigami attacked and butchered the settlement, resulting in the loss of many. Rachel managed to lead a handful of Bounts to safety, upon which they scattered to avoid detection.
After the attack, the Bount managed to reform into a smaller society, where Rachel learned of the Doll. She underwent the ritual, passing it with great difficulty. She used her family's crest tattoo as a basis for the seal, and thus, Nago & Gii the Doll and Rachel became interconnected. However, Rachel would not spend much time with the Bount. She thought their decision to attempt to enter Soul Society sheer madness, and attempted to persuade them otherwise. When she was unable to do so, she left the community, not wanting to get caught up in anything more that happened. It was a wise move; the Bount that went into battle with the Quincy and Shinigami all perished. She had avoided certain death.
Rachel then became a traveler, taking full advantage of her immortality to experience the cultures of many peoples. It was an unfortunate truth that her travels were never truly peaceful; she was often attacked by bandits for being a lone woman, and also weaker Hollow. More than once, she consumed the souls of people she had killed, whether they were bandits, corrupt officials, or even a leader of a village, slowly gaining in strength. Over time, she started to realize that, by absorbing a human's soul in this manner, her body had begun to age. She soon stopped in order to prevent becoming old and decrepit, opting to look instead like a refined young noblewoman; a transformation she took fondly to.
Finally, Rachel decided it was time to return to Brittan, her beloved homeland that had rejected her so many decades ago. Starting off small, the noble turned Bount quickly used her intuition and head for business to amass quite a fortune, buying herself a large castle in Scotland. For a time, she lived the high life once more, enjoying the peaceful times, trying to forget the affairs of the world. But the world had other ideas; no one wanted to leave Rachel alone. Once again, people grew suspicious of the woman who seemingly never aged, who kept secrets closely guarded against her breast. Finally, out of fear, villagers stormed her castle to "oust the filthy vampire", only to find that Rachel had melted into shadow, and disappeared from history.
It wasn't until many years later, in today's world, that Rachel resurfaced, this time in Karakura Town. She currently lives in a mansion, observing the events that transpire. She is currently attempting to negotiate with the Shinigami about forming a peace treaty with the few surviving Bounts, but negotiations are hindered by her inability to pass into Soul Society. However, after many months of deliberation, Rachel was accepted as an official member of the Gotei 13. Still somewhat wary of the Shinigami however, Rachel chose to spend her time in the human world tucked safely away in her mansion until a time arises for her unique abilities to be put to use. Seal
Rachel's seal for her Doll takes the form of a detailed tattoo that is hidden on her hip. When she wants to release her Doll's power for combat, she gently presses its center while saying "Zeige Dich!"
, causing it to expand. When the fighting is done she simply presses the seal again, resealing her Doll's power. Although they remain by her side and able to speak. Doll Doll Name:
Nago & Gii Doll Appearance Doll Personality
Rachel's doll is unique in that it manifests itself as two separate familiars, each with their own thoughts and particular behaviors. Nago is Rachel's black, transmogrifying cat familiar that speaks and acts just as snobbishly as her. He is often seen in umbrella form but he can also morph into and be used as several different objects or weapons. Gii is Rachel's stout red bat familiar. He is often burdened by Rachel's orders during tea-time, or her fits wherein she has the penchant of either using him as a footrest or pinching his cheek. He, like Nago, is also used in some of Rachel's attacks, transforming into a variety of weapons or objects, including a chair throne that Rachel sits upon. Due to his chubbiness, he is often mistaken for a flying pig and has been threatened to be eaten several times in the past. Zeige Dich (Shikai) Doll Release Command:
Zeige Dich! (Show Yourself!) Abilities:
Shadow/Darkness manipulation Released Appearance: Doll Special Ability:
Nago & Gii have the ability to shadowshift into a variety of objects to fit the situation and can manipulate shadows/darkness. Merging: (Bankai)
Rachel merges her spirit with that of her familiars Nago and Gii. The combined spirits increases all of her physical attributes along with allowing Rachel to directly manipulate shadows and darkness without requiring her familiars to do so. Upon completing the merging, all things in the area 100 ft around, above, and below Rachel immediately produce only extremely dim light for as long as the merging is active, including light produced from abilities, items, or techniques that use reiatsu. Techniques Shadow's Reach
Nago & Gii are highly in tune with shadows and darkness. As such, they are able to merge with or become part of any shadow or enshrouded surface, save for the air itself. This allows them to get the sneak on opponents from any angle. This ability has a downside, and during the day in that there aren't as many enshrouded surfaces that may be near convenient locations. Also, by enshrouding herself in Nago, Rachel can travel with him and sink through the shadows. Shadow's Deception
The underside of Nago is like a dark void, a unique form of shadow that allows him to link to other shadows in the combat area. As such, he is able to redirect projectile based techs by absorbing them into his underside, and making them fly out of another shadow or enshrouded surface of darkness, including the opponent's shadow. The only drawbacks are that Rachel must be immobile to concentrate on using the ability, and it may leave her open. She can also use this ability to step into Nago and appear out of another shadow. Creeping Shadow
By using reishi, Nago can make shadows literally seep from his body and onto the ground. This allows for Rachel to use shadows where there are none, and manipulate the field of battle in her favor. To start with, Nago can only make enough shadow to go around a ten foot radius. Shadowshifting
When infused with shadow, Nago & Gii are able to become living weapons, including even a canon. By covering her own body in darkness, Rachel can also artificially extend her reach and cause her clothes to change shape into weapons, such as knives and forks as well. A nice side effect of this ability is allowing Rachel's already enhanced night vision to become perfect in shadows/darkness. Deathly Shadow
Gathering reishi, Rachel can fire a beam made of shadow-like energy in order to blast opponents. The blast resembles a cero in nature, and takes time to charge. It can fly for about twenty yards before dissipating, and is enough to severely wound someone if full, unprotected contact is made. Shadow's Guardian
By wrapping her own shadow around her and hardening it with reishi, Rachel can dampen blows and projectiles fired at her. The downside is the Rachel needs to focus when using this technique, and she can only cover certain angles or lengths of her body, about half her body length. Nago is also able to use his own physical body to completely cover Rachel, but he cannot attack while doing so. Shadow's Grip
By charging reishi into her hands, Rachel is capable of making her fists have an explosive property that add extra power to her punches. The explosions focus on outward impact, and only "explode" when in close proximity of an object. Unlike a normal explosion, however, because the reishi used is shadow converted, it does not burn. Shadowburn Frog
Produced from Nago's cannon form, these shadow frogs are the same size as normal toads and have the ability to hop for a short distance before releasing an intense burning shadow "flame" from their bodies before exploding. The flame is not real fire and it gets its heat source from the frogs absorbing reishi in the atmosphere and binding them to the shadowflames while hopping. Shadow Lightning Staff
Gii transforms into a metallic rod and can be tossed or fired by Rachel through various means toward an intended target. While Gii is on the way to the target, he displaces the reishi in the atmoshere, causing them to excite the stray electrons and pull them down onto himself, becoming a living lightning rod. Other Abilities Seismic Stomp
By using her enhanced strength, Rachel stomps the ground and causes a tremor to knock targets off balance. This technique can also cause large mounds of earth to rise up for offensive or defensive purposes as well. Spirit Flick
a pluck that packs the same strength as a high speed cannonball
Using her unnatural grace and balance, all of Rachel's movements are completly silent and cannot be detected by reiatsu sensing abilities, since she does not use any. Night Vision
Being a Bount and natural nocturnal predator, Rachel has enhanced night vision and is able to see much better than humans and even Shinigami in the absence of light. Advanced Healing
Being a Bount, Rachel is able to absorb reishi from the environment to not only heal wounds, but also act as a sedative in the event of a wound too large to fully heal. The amount healed is largely dependent on the environment and the size of the wound. In places such as Soul Society or even Hueco Mundo, thanks to the massive amounts of reishi composing the environment she is able to heal and absorb at a much faster rate than places like the human world. Reishi Absorbtion
By taking a deep breath and absorbing reishi into her body, Rachel is able to temporarily supplement her naturally higher than average (by human standards) natural physical attributes. This supplement is only temporary and repeated use requires larger and larger amounts to take notable effect after the first attempt. Rachel must concentrate while absorbing the reishi and cannot attack while doing so. Reishi Manipulation
Unlike Shinigami who rely upon their own reiatsu to produce energy based attacks, Bount are unable to utilize this form of energy. Instead they rely on the outside environment, much like a Quincy, but with an entirely different source, to fuel their energy attacks. The end result is Rachel having something akin to a Shinigami's kidou, but on a much weaker or equal scale, depending on the amount of reishi in the environment. Rachel has spent many centuries perfecting this form of combat, and as such has become a potent sorcress in the arts of Magie Kunst. (Magic Arts) Note: It's not actual magic, only reishi manipulation pulled from the environment to give the illusion of magic. Reishi is a different energy source from Reiatsu and Reiryoku that other races use.
Zauberkünste (Magic Arts)
Due to the nature of relying on reishi and not reiatsu to function, all arts listed below require time to draw in, charge, and shape the reishi before they can be utilized, unlike their Kidou counterparts. They all require at least one hand held forward, which may be gripping an object. Stronger arts require more time to charge. Zauberkünste Eins: Schimmer (Magic Art 1: Glimmer)
After a moment of charging, Rachel fires a thin beam of white hot concentrated reishi toward a target with piercing capabilities. Zauberkünste Zwei: Waldbrand (Magic Art 2: Burning Forest)
Expanding on her first art, Rachel spends a few moments charging before firing a large burst of white hot concentrated reishi. Zauberkünste Drei: Orkan (Magic Art 3: Tornado)
An advanced art even for Rachel's considerable skills. This art requires a large amount of charge time due to Rachel needing to draw in and begin moving the reishi particles in a clockwise or counterclockwise pattern fast enough to generate wind. Zauberkünste Vier: Reflek (Magic Art 4: Reflect)
By gathering a small amount or reishi around one of her hands, Rachel is able to reflect physical blows right back onto the attacker while stunning them for a brief moment. Compared to her other Magie, this one requires comparatively short charging time. Zauberkünste Fünf : Fessel (Magic Art 5: Bind)
After spending several moments charging the reishi immediately surrounding a target, Rachel manipulates them to bind to them and root them in place for a few seconds. It takes an equal amount of force equal to or greater to break its effect early. Zauberkünste Sechs: Lähme (Magic Art 6: Paralysis)
This rather basic Magie is utilized by Rachel displacing the reishi around a localized area of a living target and manipulating them to amass and stick to a specific area, causing local paralasis for a few moments. This is her quickest Magie, since it is a relatively simple task to displace reishi. Zauberkünste Sieben: Fangnetz (Magic Art 7: Capture Net)
Depending on the desired size of the net, the charge time for this Magie varies from short to long. After the required charge time is completed, Rachel uses the focused Reishi to form a net of condensed energy for capturing or ensnaring target(s). Zauberkünste Acht : Donnerschlag (Magic Art 8:Thunder Clap)
Using intense concentration and master reishi manipulating, Rachel channels the reishi in the atmosphere and attaches them to stray electrons. After a considerable amount of charging, she is able to pull down the reishi still attached to the electrons at a rapid rate, making it appear as though she's pulling down a bolt of lighting. This is her most advanced Magie Kunst by far. Zauberkünste Neun: Geistfessel
- Rachel coats an opponent's legs in reishi, preventing the use of high speed movement techniques, such as shunpo or sonido. Zauberkünste Zehn: Pike
- a dozen lances of super hot reishi pierce an opponent from in front, behind, below, above, and from both sides. Ausweichschritt (Swift Step)
To perform the technique, Rachel gathers reishi under her feet and rides them to the desired location. Like the air-walking skill displayed by most Arrancar and Shinigami, it can also be used to hover or fly for long distances. Ausweichschritt enables Rachel to keep up with, and overpower physically faster opponents depending on their skill. Rachel is so proficient in Schnell Schritt's use that she can flap her wings at the same time as using it to further boost her speed.
