Nicknames: The Pure Born, The Submissive Empress, The Hidden Matriarch
Age: 245 (Appearance Age: Late Teens)

Species: Caucasian Greek Pureza (Purity) Class Arrancar
Alliance: Cero Espada (Designated as the 'Ultimo Recurso'/'Last Resort' of Las Noches)
Theme: Castle of Glass Linkin Park
Appearance: Liz is a Purity among imperfections, hence the name of her level of Arrancar species. She is the only one of her kind to have been created, a more fitting word actually be born. The mainstream creation of an Arrancar is through the evolutionary processes that is part of the Arrancar's lifespan and virtually every Arrancar must go through. However, Liz is the sole exception to the entire fundamental procedure that every Shinigami is taught and no Shinigami that lives know the secret behind the Hidden Matriarch. Instead of evolving from a Hollow to an Arrancar, Liz was physically born an Arrancar. This extremely rare occurrence of actually being born from the Genese of two arrancars that have mated together is something that has only happened three times in Las Noches's bloody and eternal history and every time the Arrancar becomes an incredibly powerful individual. Liz's father was Antagglio Illgaskus, the Primera Espada of Corrosion and her mother was Quinta Espada Ellenari Moyteyyo of Constriction. The two older Arrancars conceived a love for each other long ago. Despite Antagglio's dying condition the two Espada became romancing lovers in the silver moonlight of the infinite desert. The two's love proven so strong, Ellenari became pregnant with what would soon be Liz. An Arrancar's pregnancy is the same as a Human's or a Shinigami's with basically the same stipulations. Soon enough Liz was born, bearing the same features of her mother and father. When Liz looked to be three years old however, her father Antagglio died from his constantly corroding and eroding condition. This left the young Liz with her lonely mother who had now became the Segunda Espada. She acted as an overprotective mother, protecting her young daughter till she appeared to roughly look like she was in her early teens. On that fateful day, Ellenari was slain by a former Captain of the 13 divisions, leaving the young but powerful Illgaskus child alone. Quickly however, she was taken in under the likes of the older and more subtle Espada who are all alive and serving with her in present times. They would be former Trecera Espada Jarikan Allcatama, Former Segunda Espada Darrendo Chivarre and former former Quinra Espada Forrsythe Hilschefft who are now the present Primera, Quinta and Novena Espadas. They came to protect her, help her harness her power and mold her into the powerful Purity Arrancar she is today.
Over the developmental stages of Liz's life, she has inherited the features of both her father and her mother respectively, combining the two former powerful Espada's features into a single morphed body. Liz is a perfect balance of the piercing features of her Corroded Father and Constricted Mother, mainly represented in her facial features. Liz presently represents the striking features of her father Antagglio in the form of her illustrious eyes and softened round facial structure. Her eyes are considered the most definite and striking stare in all of Las Noches, their color and the size of her eyes being the main reason why. Her eyes are fairly larger than normal and take a powerful burnt orange color, an exact replica of her father's eyes. When looking into her gaze, one can feel sick, nauseous, and even a bit feverish. It's a sight that is as obnoxiously sickening as it is terrifically beautiful. To add to the general 'softness' of her features, Liz's facial structure is a round, clean shape, like that of a sheepish teenage girl taken directly out of high school in the human world. To contradict her illustrious orange eyes in a virtually perfect way, Liz's hair takes a complimentary color to that of the burnt orange eyes. Much like how Liz's eyes are an exact representation of her father, her hair is a perfect symbol of her mother Ellenari. Liz's hair is an unusual solid blue color. This blue color is a perfect complimentary match to her piercing orange eyes, making her a beauty in both complimentary color values and appearance as well in both face and body. Her hair akes a choppy texture and it tied back in a long tail that reaches the point in between her shoulder blades, the tail being held by a small black cloth. As for Liz's body, her shape and features is a well sculpted and beautifully shaped mosaic of curved aesthetics and athletic performance. Standing at about Five feet Eight inches, her height is well above the average of a woman, especially of her young age. As for more sensual and attractive features along her body, Liz holds a large yet modestly hidden d-cup chest and a set of well shaped hips that conform cleanly with her tall body, all this topped by a pinkly tanned Caucasian skin. She is rather reclusive in showing her wondrous features, even with the influences of Cuatra Espada Marrisona Alejandro wanting her to flaunt the gifts she was given, but she continuously pushes for a more modest and meager look.
Despite her birth process being different and completely skipping the evolutionary chain that all Hollow are supposed to go through, Liz holds all the arrancar features that every other one of her comrades hold. Mask fragments, Hollow Hole, and Espada tattoos are all held on her body with the only feature missing being some of the colored markings that some Arrancars have. For Liz's mask fragments, many do find that her Mask as well as her Hollow Hole are located in rather odd places of her body but kept in the same general vicinities. Liz's mask fragments are located on the back of her neck, neatly tucked below her back hairline and underneath her attire however they are much more complex. From what could be seen, the mask appears as a smooth thin sliver of bone about four inches wide that stretches down the back of her neck towards her shoulder blades. When they reach the upper portion of her shoulders, the travel all the way down to the center of her spine in a pointed shape like an English sword. However at the center portion of the slivering mask fragment right in the center of her shoulder, two slivers split out in opposite directions and form of two ornate curling around circles. The fragments is similar to a distorted and stretched Fleur-de-lis symbol if one were to describe it simply. Her Hollow hole is located at the center of where her neck and chest meet, it also aligned directly with her mask fragments on the other side of her neck. Finally, her definitive gothic number '0' Espada tattoo is located on the palm of her left hand, it being hidden by her choice of attire however which keeps her power secluded from the outside world until she chooses to show it.
Attire: The attire that Liz has picked for her choice of comfort is a uniform designed with terms of actual body comfort, mental comfort according to Liz's Aspect of Death and even holds a sense of regality to it. The basis of uniform would be her regulatory Arrancar top that holds close to her body, being firmly secured to her curvaceously athletic body but still giving some slack to allow her more sensitive and loose regions of her upper body to have comfort. The top is a simple shirt with tight short sleeves and collar with a somewhat loose torso. The short sleeves of her shirt only reach a few inches past the curves of her shoulders and the collar hugs close to her neck and reaches about halfway up to her throat so that it just covers her Hollow Hole. The top edge of the collar has a black strap that circles around the entirety of it's circumference. At the center of it's front, a thin black stripe runs down from where the top edge of her hollow would be at the shirt collar's edge would be all the way down the vertical length of her shirt all the way to it's bottom edge. Liz also has a top piece over the shirt itself, which is the outfit's portion of 'regality'. The piece takes the form similar of a Shinigami Captain's Haori, with it being almost entirely white with and having identical dimensions such as length and width. In reality that is what it's based off of, Liz has always found the style and comfort of Shinigami attire rather interesting as well as comfortable and thus she chooses to mimic it with her Haori replica. The Haori lacks sleeves however, creating easy access for her slender arms. The sleeve cut out edges of the 'Haori' as well as it's frontal edges are lined with black stripes, making it take the standard form of what Arrancar uniforms are known for. On her arms, she wears a pair of tight gloves that hug close to her arms and encompass her whole hands, stretching from the tips of her fingers and go all the way up to right before her elbows in an almost fashion trending way. To round off the rest of her uniform, Liz has a solid blue sash that matches perfectly with her hair along with white hakamas and matching socks and sandals that are generally the same as all Arrancars.
Aspect of Death: Submission
Personality: Liz's personality is a strange one to be said simply, especially with the fact of how it revolves around her unique aspect of death Submission. One of the unsung titles that she has gotten is 'The God with Broken Knees'. This term reflects her power and how her personality counteracts how much power she holds. As many would expect from the title of Cero Espada, Liz holds a legendary amount of power within her young and seemingly meager body that would look more fragile than powerful. In history, the Cero Espada has been the supreme leader of the Arrancar army but Liz's role is different in the case. Instead she is known as the 'Ultimo Recurso' (Last Resort), a title in which her and the present leader of the Arrancar army Jarikan Allcatama have designated. Instead of fighting on the frontlines, Liz is generally assigned to either be the last defense for the likes of Hueco Mundo or made to be the final fighter to enter the battlefield to combat the most powerful opponents. Liz has yet to fully utilize her power on the battlefield, but Jarikan has held top secret war simulations with the rest of the Espada to recreate what would happen if Liz were to be drawn to the battlefield. As to what certain emotions make her this way, many would see her as an emotional teenage girl caught in the tumultuous times of human High Schools. Generally Liz is quiet, shy and anti-social, which all fall in the lines of her aspect of death. She generally stays away from the majority of the Arrancar crowd, finding a certain peace and security within herself and the loneliness that would encompass the world around her. She will rarely show herself to the lower ranks of Arrancars, not in arrogance but rather in just pure fear of crowds and submitting to what they tell her. Generally the largest crowd she will expose herself to would be Espada meetings, she doesn't even have a fraccion to converse with. Generally other Espada are the ones to converse or aide her personal problems but even they are quite limited to a desolate few. Generally the only Espada that Liz is truly comfortable around are Primera Jarikan Allcatama, Trecera Drake Gunthorrne, Quinta Darrendo Chivarre and Septima Corrona Viola and each for very different reasons. Jarikan is the only one whom she is even remotely close to in actual power for she wouldn't have the fear of killing him, which gives her comfort. Drake is actually a close friend of Liz's since an early age, despite their quite large age difference in both actual years and appearance. The two have a 'tough big brother and shy little sister' relationship, which would be an odd thing to see in when in private. Darrendo serves as a fatherly figure in Liz's eyes, mainly due to him being one of the older Espada as well as his incredible knowledge of her and her parents which at first frightened her but she soon grew attached to the man. Finally, Corrona would be considered Liz's personal messenger and servant to when she has been secluded to her quarters. However when she knows it is a time of war and especially when she is confronted on the battlefield, he epitome becomes extremely serious. She disregards all the hardships of her personal mind and sets all of her mental capacity on one thing and that is making sure she were to win her side of the war.
Reiatsu Suppressing Gloves: Although Liz is almost entirely in control of her legendary amounts of spiritual power, she chooses to resort to a more aesthetic and secretive way to completely seal away her spiritual pressure from being released. She does this to prevent her own body from releasing her extreme power on a secondary level so there is practically no chance of her ungodly power to be unfurled and possibly destroy some of her weaker allies such as Fracciones or even the weaker Espada. The ornate and fashionable gloves that are on her hands and arms are actually the Reiatsu Suppressing Gloves themselves. They were designed specifically by Darrendo Chivarre himself, infusing small amounts of Sekki Sekki stone in which he had secretly harvested from the Soul Society. These small pieces of Sekki Sekki stone are located and woven through the silk threads of the gloves, placed in key places to suppress her Reiatsu to the point where it's hidden but not completely sealed away that Sekki Sekki normally is used for. These gloves are also a psychological symbol of what the situation of the conflict is and that is seen by how they're worn. If they're on Liz's hands, the situation hasn't escalated to her full power however if they're off it is a different story. When the gloves come off, Liz's number is revealed to the world and her Reiatsu will be let loose, unleashing the mighty power that is hidden within the young body of the Hidden Matriarch.
Cero Master: Liz's most proficient skill is her amazingly mastered Cero, which is normally her first attack on the battlefield to catch her enemies of guard or to provide a sort of artillery support for allies when they need it. Liz's mastery of the Cero isn't so much about true unadulterated power but rather in the form of versatility as well as the number in which she can release in rapid succession within only a few moments. This allows her to be a valuable asset in the terms of combat support on the battlefield, which Jarikan Allcatama has exploited in many simulations against the other Espada. He has shown them as well as showed her how much of a true asset she actually is despite her reclusive opinion to combat. Liz's normal Cero is interesting in the fact that it is a mix of two colors rather than the normal single color of a standard Cero. The Cero is made up of a spinning mix of burnt orange and solid blue, two colors that properly match her eyes and hair as well as her spiritual pressure when it is released. Liz can fire a Cero from any portion of her body, and can even launch multiple Cero's at a time. This unpredictable versatility allows her to be practically untouchable when in battle, sometimes an enemy can't even get within ten feet of her body from this ability. For Liz, she sees it as her body's own protection system, wanting to keep her from any possible harm at incoming attacks.
~Cero del Padre Corrosivos (Cero of the Corroding Father): Liz's versatility of her Ceros isn't just found in her ability to fire Ceros from every portion of her body or the sheer number she can fire, but also as in types of Ceros she can fire. Liz's Cero's have a rather blatant relation to the powers of her father and mother which is can be seen in use as well as the names of the Ceros. One of the two kinds of Cero's she can fire is known as the Cero del Padre Corrosivos which represents her father Antagglio Illgaskus, the former Primera Espada of Corrosion before Jarikan Allcatama. Many notice that Liz's Cero is a mix of colors instead of the normal single color, and this is the result of using one color of her Cero blasts instead of mixing them together. This Cero is orange, matching her eyes in which she inherited from her father. Unlike her normal Ceros, it requires a gesture to fire and that would to hold her hand out horizontally flat with her fingers straight and the palm facing up into the air. While she is holding her hand out like this, an orange ball of energy will form in the palm of her hand which is of course the Cero. The Cero however looks strange, instead of solid is seems to be melting on itself constantly with small drips of it's own energy although it never disappears from it's apparent deterioration. The Cero orb will grow till it firmly sits in her hand completely and at the size of a basketball. The orb will then explode outwards at the speed of her normal Ceros, however this Cero is different. Instead of the Cero being like a battering ram or a cannon shot, the entire Cero is like a corrosive acidic bomb that apparently corrodes anything it touches. Metal would rust, plastics would melt, stones would wear down, any organisms caught in it are in danger of being completely deteriorated into a husk or melted slag, making this Cero both inhumane and terrifying much like her father's power was known for.
~Cero de la Madre Coactivo (Cero of the Constricting Mother): Unlike the Cero del Padre Corrosivos, the Cero de la Madre Coactivo isn't made for inhumane and tactical destruction but instead it is created and used for pure unadulterated explosive power and surprise, much like how Liz's mother was on the battlefield. This Cero as told by it's name represents Liz's mother Elenarri Moyteyyo, the former Segunda and Quinta Espada of Constriction and it's color is a solid blue, matching the blue hair in which Liz inherited from her mother. This Cero is rather interesting in the fact of how it's fired. The beginning of it's creative process is identical to that of the Cero del Padre Corrosivos, with her arm and hand lined perfectly horizontal outwards. Instead of a corrosive orange orb forming in her hand, a purely solid blue orb of energy will form. The orb doesn't even look like it's made of energy, it looks more like a solid blue ceramic orb. It is, however, an illusionary trick from how compressed the energy of the Cero is. Instead of firing it however, Liz will tightly grip it in her hand as if she were canceling it out completely. However, blue energy and light can be seen glowing from her closed fist as if the Cero was trying to break free. This process is normally followed by one of Liz's rather quick Sonido's right towards her enemy, her glowing fist barred tightly and poised to strike. When she is in range, she will thrust her fist forward in an extremely powerful punch but it's power is not because of her strength but because of the Cero within her hand. As soon as the punch makes contact, the Cero will explode from her hand, making a point blank strike of Cero Espada power right on her enemy. This can easily be a kill shot for some enemies. And thanks to her Hierro, the Cero only chars the skin's surface without any damage to her whatsoever.
Sonido Master: Liz's best overall skill-set is revolved around the actual Arrancar abilities, and her abilities with Sonido is another representation of that. In no way is Liz as quick with a Sonido as the present Legend of the Sonido Trecera Espada Drake Gunthorrne, but her abilities put her directly in a second ranked position next to the Bloody King. Liz wasn't originally incredibly fast, but over the past few years she had been helped by the two true masters of the Sonido Drake Gunthorrne and Corrona Viola, both of which are the fastest individuals in the Arrancar army with the exception of Liz herself. The two's teachings helped develop Liz's Sonido to a whole new level, and even helping her design her own version of Sonido. Drake's own Sonido is powered by the pure compressed strength of his legs while Corrona's is driven by her sheer maneuverability and leanness of her athletic body, Liz's is different. Liz found that she could create small 'soles' of energy on the bottom of her feet, which create a universally smooth surface for her to run on no matter what surface. With this 'zero friction' factor, she can project her body like no other. She can move as free as the wind, allowing her full ability to change direction on a dime in the middle of her Sonido as well. This makes her Sonido quick, smooth, and completely dangerous.
Hierro Master: To complete the set of skills that are honed in by all Arrancars, Liz's iron skin is among the strongest in the ranks of the Espada. Her skills in this field much like in Sonido isn't anywhere near the likes of the present Legend of the skill, who would be the present Primera Espada Jarikan Allcatama, but her skills in the fields are high above anyone else. Her Hierro contradicts her thin, seemingly meek frame, which makes her incredibly dangerous and unsuspecting when an enemy tries to land a strike on her body. This Hierro for her, however, is a secondary line of defense for her body instead of it being her primary. Her primary defense would be her Ceros in which are able to keep her enemies at a distance. If enemies can make it past her 'security system' of Ceros, then they must come in contact with a formidable iron skin that envelops her entire body. Reaching this far is a formidable feat for no Shinigami has ever cut her skin, and Liz has never seen her own blood before. Nobody knows how Liz would react when she would see her own blood, but her ally Jarikan believe that whoever had cut her would've incurred a wrath far beyond anything they could imagine from such a meager teenage girl.
Bojutsu Expert: When in comes to pure combat abilities outside of what the Arrancars are uniquely made for, Liz would resort to her main weapon as a first term of attack and defense. Although Zanjutsu would normally be a skill for an Arrancar to master, Liz is an expert of an alternate version known as Bojutsu which is the mastery of pole-based arms. This is because of the shape of her Zanpakutou in it's sealed form which is shaped like a Guan Dao. Although this style of fighting with a weapon is somewhat difficult to fully master, Liz has at least made it as an expert skill for herself. Her main skill with the use of her Guan Dao is her ability to fight with both of her hands on the weapon. Though this would seem like a rather simple skill for an expert of Bojutsu to be proficient at, this ability to fight with both hands allows her to have optimal attacks with her weapon as well as score attacks with the use of her Ceros due to her body being able to produce them from her body without gestures. This dangerous combo allows her to be a nightmare at close to mid range because of an extreme amount of unpredictability that she holds within her fighting style.
Hakuda Expert: At times if things were to come close to the chest for her of if she were to believe that her enemy was too weak for even her blade or a Cero, Liz can simply swipe down her enemies with her hands with little effort. Despite her refraining from keeping close contact, Liz is surprisingly talented in the arts of Hakuda. She doesn't use any kind of unique style but she is quite flexible in the way she fights, which is the main trick behind her Hakuda skills. Also her a decent amount of Hakuda knowledge is needed her to fully utilize her mighty Cero De la Madre Coactivo which can be the bane of any of her enemies' existences. If she can fully master the arts of Hakuda like she had mastered her Cero De la Madre Coactivo, her abilities in close range combat could be apocalyptic for almost anyone who were to confront her at close range. Her Hakuda abilities also go hand in hand with her Bojutsu abilities, due to her skills with combining her body's fighting abilities and her blade's abilities in one masterful bonding style. She can easily place her blade in the ground and swing with her legs in a powerful kick.
Legendary Spiritual Pressure: The spiritual pressure that is confined with the meager body that Liz holds is beyond any Arrancar can imagine. Her spirit is power personified, stealing divine strength of the gods and welling it into an unsuspecting body. Her power is so amazingly large for two main reasons. The first of which would be the fact that she is known as a Pureza class Arrancar, which each Arrancar of that class live up to. A Pureza class Arrancar is a body of purity, for it doesn't require souls to level up it's power. Instead, as the body grows, the spiritual pressure does as well. There is one defect to this and that is that Pureza Arrancars age in appearance. Instead of evolving and locking at a certain age like all other Arrancars who evolve, Pureza arrancars age over time much like a Shinigami does which is equivalent to a lifespan that can last a millennia with one year of age appearance equaling 15 years of actual time. Many would believe that Liz's comrade Jarikan Allcatama would have the same fate but since he was born as an Adjuchas, his abilities were still in the evolutionary flow of Hollows. Liz's spiritual pressure is very rarely released, but when it is, it can be quickly fatal for beings of low spiritual pressure. It's very existence can pound her adversaries as well as her allies into dust, that's why she takes very careful steps to hold it back. It's color is identical to the likes of her own Cero, meaning it is a clashing cascade of solid blue and burnt orange. When released, an adversary can see that the general color of the spiritual pressure is solid blue with it's outlines and spits of energy that shoot from her initial release being the burnt orange. This creates a rather beautiful mountain of pure power, something that is rarely seen. Instead of spiritual pressure inspiring pure fear into her enemies, many are captivated by it's sheer complimentary beauty in which. Liz's spiritual pressure doesn't take a certain shape but instead tries to overtake all that it can find. This represents it's nature, creating a sea of sheer power that will drown away anything that Liz has no want to deal with.
Brazo de Sumision (Arm of Sumision): This ability is one that Liz dreads, almost to the point where she wishes she never held such an ability. The Brazo de Sumision is an ability that coincides with her Aspect of Death, Submission, and it uses the opposite side of Submission instead of her submitting to others, they would submit to her. This ability is performed by using only her hands but it is not considered a Hakuda technique due to it being used without combat as well as in combat during a desperate time or if she was commanded to so but even then she would probably refrain. The process in which to use the Brazo de Sumision is by properly facing her target face to face, which would put her in general danger to use in the midst of battle. She will straighten her hand out much like she does with her two special Cero's but instead of charging a Cero, she would jab her hand into her target's chest right where the Soul's Chain of Fate would have been located. The process that would happen next could be considered one of the most painful actions for the victim of the ability. Liz's whole arm will glow with blue spiritual pressure, then as if on cue, her victim's spiritual pressure will seem to completely explode out from their body as if it were being blown out and actually what's happening. The process is emptying her victim's spiritual pressure from their body and then replacing it with her own. When the victim's been completely emptied out, she will then turn her hand as if she were turning a key in a lock. The spiritual pressure on her arm would then shift orange, and the process happens again only inversely. Now her spiritual pressure will plow into their body, filling their emptied spiritual pressure with her own. With her spiritual pressure now running through their body, she would have complete control over them, as if they submitted to her power. There is a major drawback however. Whomever she uses the Brazo de Sumision on she must trade an equivalent amount of spiritual pressure for her victim's. This can leave her weakened quite badly if she were to use it on immense spiritual pressure level adversaries and could possibly kill her against Vast or Legendary class spiritual pressure enemies. That's one of the reasons why she doesn't use it, another reason is that she finds it inhumane, terrifying, and unwanted in her skill set.
Lagrimas del Sol (Tears of the Sun): Although the Brazo de Sumision is a rather inhumane and terrible weapon to use for Liz, she does hold a rather angelic and beautiful ability to give life rather than enslaving it. This ability is performed with the same hands that would commit the life-stealing Brazo de Sumision but instead these hands will present a healing touch. What Liz would do is hold her hand up to whoever she is targeting it for and line the hand up with their chest in the same position as the soul's chain of fate, but instead of her hand being straight forward it would have her palm straight up with it's center facing the chain of fate. Her hand will then start to glow with orange ambient energy and will be followed by subtle sparkles of orange energy. This sparkles are truly beautiful, the seem to float in the wind and meld with the target's body. Instead of replacing her target's spiritual pressure with her own, she is letting her spiritual pressure meld and fuse with theirs, and essentially giving them spiritual pressure and even healing the wounds. Essentially she is sacrificing a portion of herself to give rejuvenate their body. This ability was given it's name by her mother Ellenari, who saw the ability firsthand for her daughter was trying to heal a wound that Ellenari had taken.
Enhanced Strength: Despite her quite curvy figure and generally small epitome of her body, Liz has quite the formidable physical strength. She actually requires such amazing strength because of the sealed form of her Zanpakutou which is quite large and heavy. Many think that her Zanpakutou is just light in her hands, however that isn't the case. The Guan Dao that is her blade is heavy enough to put some unsuspecting strong men on the ground while Liz can hold it with a single hand. Her strength is also utilized in the ways of her Hakuda abilities. Her enhanced physical power allows her to strike some incredible power into her enemies, as well as able to swing her Guan Dao with terrifying power enough to completely obliterate anything in her and her blade's range. This impressive strength is nothing like the physical brutes of the Espada such as Jarikan Allcatama and Sinataro Attakata, but it is enough to rank impressively with her comrades.
Resurreccion: Mariposa (Butterfly): The mighty butterfly blade as it is sometimes given a nickname to, the sealed state of the mighty Mariposa resurreccion may hold a rather meager name but it's sealed state is represents the true power that it holds in it's present form as well as what is to come in her coming form. As many can tell simply by looking at her when not on the battlefield, Liz doesn't carry her blade with her and for good reason. The weapon is large, unwieldy, and her power would generally be enough to handle any of her other subordinates if need be. Normally the blade would be found on a huge mantle in her room, however she can call it to her with a simple mental call to the power of the blade. If she is caught in a situation where she does need her blade, she can simply hold up her hand above her head and a culmination of blue and orange energy will form in her hands before expanding out quickly. Then almost as if a weight were dropped into her hand, the blade would form and drop into her hand, at times if she was standing on the ground, the floor beneath her would crack from the new heavy weight. The new blade takes the form of an overly massive Guan Dao, a massive combat spear made for slashing and midrange combat rather than throwing. The Guan Dao stretches 21 feet from the tip of the blade to the bottom of the pole with a 6 foot long and 4 foot wide blade and a 15 foot long and 2 foot wide pole. The pole is definitely too wide for her grab complete around with her hands and that's why she fights with both hands to keep a firm grasp around the pole. The pole itself is a soft blue painted color and it's material seems to be some kind of smoothened wood. To add detail to the rather simple looking pole, small lines of orange pain cross over each other much like design of a Katana hilt but instead of cloth crossing it's wood carving. The blade itself however is the interesting portion of the blade. The blade of the Guan Dao is shaped like half of a Matriarch Butterfly with outstretched wings. Instead of intricate patterns however, it simply has a black blade and a silver edge. The cutting side of the blade would be the butterfly wing's and it's guarding side would be a straight line.
The release of the mighty resurreccion that is Mariposa is a product of incredible emergency. For the Cero Espada to call forth her resurreccion is a sign that someone of incredible spiritual power is on the other side of the battlefield such as a Captain Commander or a Captain of extremely high power. It's a release that even the mighty Primera Espada Jarikan fears to be on the opposing end of, it's power is unrelenting and it's destructive capabilities are beyond those many can imagine. To release this epitome of pure Arrancar power, Liz will hold her massive Guan Dao above her head as if she were about to slam it. She will then quickly inverse the blade so that the blade is facing down and she will stick the blade in the ground below her. She will follow this action by using a Sonido to hop up onto the pole's bottom, her toes properly positioned to keep her balance on the limited surface. She will keep in a squatted form for a small amount of time with her eyes closed and her arms spread apart. She will then mutter two simple words, "Break Away". With that, her body will start subtly glowing a mix of orange and blue and she will go into a standing up position and finished with the release's name "Mariposa." And with those words, her body will arch forward but keep it's balance on the pole as a legendary blast of blue and orange reiatsu will explode from her in an apocalyptic cyclone. A mix of wind and spiritual pressure will completely envelop the area around her in a tornado that will rise miles into the air and a half of a mile in width, launching anybody within that area with the sheer force of it and some of the weaker beings into a total oblivion. Her releasing power will completely rule the area, it will reign above all others in it's releasing process. This cyclone will hold around her for a good few minutes, allowing her allies and enemies to gaze in awe at what is in front of them. Then, as if to silence the rage of the tornado, two massive wings of blue energy will cut out from the sides of the tornado. They will then flap their wings and disperse the tornado, allowing her new form to be seen.
The new form of the great Hidden Matriarch is now something of pure beauty, something as one would expect from a name such as Mariposa as well as the actually beauty of Liz herself. It's almost a divine and angelic scene from when she releases her Resurreccion. Her Guan Dao, strangely is still in the ground but Liz surely has changed. Now standing on the edge of the pole is the beautiful form of Liz. The first many notice is her facial features and hair. Her hair is still the solid blue but now it has tips of orange, and the hair is let loose from it's tail, letting the beautiful hair flow in the wind. Her eyes are different however. Her irises are now solid blue, however the whites of her eyes are a bright orange, making a beautifully complimentary mix of colors. Her body also now has been cast in a set of armor that further carries her beauty. Her torso of her body seems to be made of a multi-layered suit of armor, with the actual part of her body being covered in a form-fitting substance that takes a blue color. This layer is covered by a thick set of bone plating, covering the sides of her torso in a set of rib-like structures with her abdomen covered in a bone plating that curves around the contours and muscles of her body. Her upper torso has a collar that is firmly held in place and has a high reach that reaches the back of her neck's hairline. The armor up on this portion is smooth and contours around her breasts and creates a spiral structure along the breasts' sides to give them a guard and prevent unnecessary movement of them. Her shoulders adorn heavy pyramid-like structures that hold close to her shoulders, allowing her free movement though. Her arms are lightly clad in bone armor, have a smooth edge on the outer edge of her arms while giving the undersides nothing to protect but the blue surface. Her hands are clad in bone gauntlets in a style where it seems a skeleton's hand is laying on the back of her hand with it's fingers moving with her fingers but leaving her palms bare. Her legs are covered in smooth yet layered bone that contour perfectly with the curves and shapes of her legs with little complexity to them. Her body's armor is also covered in tribal, glittering orange marks that spread in random designs all over the boned armor. This gives it a the bland white colored armor a sense of color and beauty to it. The final portion of her resurrected body is her wings. She now has a pair of massive, pure energy butterfly wings sticking from her designed like a Matriarch Butterfly. The where the black of the wings would be is a solid blue and the orange is an identical shade of orange. Once the entire process is finished, the pole beneath Liz's feet will seem to crack with orange and blue energy. It's pole will suddenly then blast apart, showing a thinner gold rod underneath. This gold rod has multiple small crisscrosses in it and is now thin enough to fit in Liz's hands. With this, Liz will gently float down to the ground and pull the new rod from the ground. The blade is now changed, now it is a full butterfly blade instead of a half, creating a massive bladed staff for her to use. Hanging from the bottom portion of the wings of the blade is a set of small chains with small chrysalis shaped charms. In this form, all of Liz's Arrancar skills are heightened to a new level, and even gain new abilities of her own.
Cetro de la Matriarca (Scepter of the Matriarch): The Cetro de la Matriarca is the name of the large bladed staff that Liz holds in her hand. This staff is her main weapon in terms of actual combat outside of her new heightened Arrancar abilities, and it serves more than just a weapon. The Cetro de la Matriarca has many abilities to add to the sheer combat capability, making the weapon a centerpiece for Liz to fight with in more ways than one. This interesting feature would seem like a sort of kryptonite for Liz but however it is an indestructible one. The form of the Cetro de la Matriarca is made up condensed spiritual power to the sixth degree, making every ten grams of spiritual pressure that make up the blade actually one million grams of spiritual pressure. This interesting feature does two main things to the structure of Cetro de la Matriarca and that it makes the weapon entirely indestructible and blunt strikes six times as more powerful than normal due to the sheer weight of the strikes. This ability can be absolutely terrifying when mixed with her new physical strength. A simple wind gust from her blade can destroy an entire building and since the blade is made of her spiritual pressure, it would seem as light as a feather quite literally when swung. This deadly combination makes any melee strike with her weapon a pure and deadly strike of absolute force.
Alas del Reino (Wings of the Kingdom): The Alas del Reino are the names given to the massive wings of pure spiritual power on her back. The wings are actually a mixed feature, they're a hybrid of her body's structure and a constantly activated ability. Liz can actually call back the wings at will but she would rarely ever do such a thing for they provide a surmountable amount of fighting capability and strength to them. These wings can do a multitude of things to further add to the vast arsenal of abilities that Liz already has in her Cero. Her wings both provide abilities of defense and offense which can be vital in the heat of battle. They give Liz the ability of flight, which gives her an enhanced ability of maneuverability and agility when fighting in battle without the use of her heightened Sonido. Liz can also create Ceros and Balas from her wings as well, thanks to them being a new appendage of her body. This allows her to fire a whole volley of Ceros with truly minimal effort. She can also fire the new, heightened version of Cero del Padre Corrosivos from her wings, and even can fire two of them at a time. This versatile weapons mixed with the Cetro de la Matriarca make her abilities truly unpredictable.
Segunda Etapa: Segunda Etapa is a technique of myth, something that only a select few of Arrancar have ever been able to succeed in completing and some others are born with it much like Liz. Not even the prestigious Jarikan Allcatama has reached the likes of Segunda Etapa yet although he is dangerously close. The fact that Liz has mastered such a transformation is one of the reasons why she is considered the 'Ultimo Recurso'. She is the only living Espada that holds the prestigious ability, and she didn't earn it through training, but she was born with it. She had a special spiritual gene where it had automatically unlocked the Segunda Etapa phase along with her prime Resurreccion. This ability has only been seen by rare eyes, only two other Espada have ever seen her in her Segunda Etapa form and they would be Jarikan and Darrendo; and both of them have a firm knowledge of it's amazing power. The release of this form has only been unleashed three times in Liz's history of it's mastery, once to present to Jarikan and Darrendo, and the other two for her own curiosity. She has learned the abilities of her Segunda Etapa to an optimal climax, meaning that she has control of it's full power and that to release this on the battlefield is a sign that nearly all hope is lost.
The release of this form is a rather short process, and it's release of power is actually almost nothing, making it a rather subtle release. To start it's process of release, Liz will stand where she is at a state of attention, her heels clicked together and her wings out wide. She will then hold the Cetro de la Matriarca in front of her with both hands firmyl grasped around it's pole, the blade of it facing right up into the air. The blade will be perfectly vertical, Liz would make sure of that. If one were to look at her, many would compare her to a mystical knight of medieval times with her armor and woman. Liz will close her eyes in concentration and let her hands squeeze tight on the blade followed by a light whispering of the word "Mariposa Resurreccion". With those words, the blade will dissolve in a glittering flurry of blue and orange shining particles in the air. These particles will then move over her body and seem to dissolve in her skin, much like how Lagrimas del Sol works but for herself. She will let out a soft, rasping breath before letting her body arch forward, her arms falling back as if she were being lifted from the ground in a heavenly manner but she really wasn't moving from her spot truly. She will then breath out the final words "Segunda Etapa". With these words, her skin will start to change in a strange way. It will start to become a translucent blue, like she was a living prism of sorts. Her entire body will change like this but her body underneath the changing skin isn't like an actual anatomy's, it's empty, and subtle. The only object within her body is what looks like her nervous system which is now a vibrant orange. Her face will remain but her eyes will return to a fully orange. Her hair will also become translucent and grow much longer from it's original length. It will reach the floor and actually create a whole streaming area of hair behind her, it's translucent beauty flowing in the wind like a celestially carved mane of the stars. Her wings keep the same shape and color despite her newly changed, almost heavenly body. The armor is completely gone, all that is left now is just a smooth body that seems to have no genitalia or nipples but does hold breasts respectively.
In this new form, Liz is now pure, unadulterated energy condensed and shaped into a body. This new body may have been subtly released but it holds more power than many Arrancar and Shinigami may believe. Since her body is pure energy, her abilities are truly of something else. She can easily create a vast amount of abilities, most of which don't even have a name because they're products of just her mind itself. Also, much like her Cetro de la Matriarca was made of condensed spiritual pressure to the sixth degree, Liz's is identical to that. Her body is actually six times it's normal weight, which means trying to slam her off her feet is almost impossible unless the strike were from someone with amazing strength. There are no true abilities of Liz besides pure shape-shifting abilities taken to a new ungodly level of power. She can do practically anything to her body to shift it. She can open up holes in her skin to avoid ranged attacks, shift her size to any size on the spectrum, shift her appendages into weapons and create new appendages or even independent weapons. She can even launch blasts of energy from her body that are like bombs, even more powerful than a Cero. This, combined with her already heightened skills of Sonido, Cero, and Hierro make her an enemy that is a hidden Goddess among men.
