Hollow are a race of creatures which are born from Human souls who, for various reasons, do not cross over to Soul Society after their death and stay in the Human World for too long. They are corrupt spirits with supernatural powers that devour the souls of both living and deceased Humans. Hollows settle in Hueco Mundo, but can cross over to the Human World and Soul Society.
Hollows have widely varying physical characteristics, few of them rarely appear the same. In terms of appearance, Hollows can range in appearance from furry (like mammals) through lizard-like to outright demonic. Hollows also vary in size, though it tends to be fairly consistent amongst the various classifications of Menos. In Hueco Mundo, some Hollows are no larger than common pets. Most common Hollows are about twice the size of an adult Human, though it can vary to a degree.
Like Shinigami, Hollows have a multitude of combat skills and abilities, most of which are usually unique to specific Hollows. The more powerful Hollows, however, have access to techniques of greater power or use than their own unique skills. Hollows usually acquire energy to power their abilities by devouring souls, but smaller ones can also ingest energy from the atmosphere when in realms with high concentration of spiritual energy, such as Hueco Mundo.
Soul-Body Separation: This technique allows a Hollow to forcibly extract a living spirit from his/her body. It is usually not used because Hollows tend to go after Pluses, who have no physical or living body to speak of. Must have at least 3 in SEI to use.
Acidic Touch: When a Hollow grabs a Human with their hands, the spot where the person was grabbed is burned as if acid were poured onto it. This seems to allow the Hollow's reiatsu to seep into the person, causing great pain to the victim. Must have at least 3 in SEI to use.
Cero: A form of attack used by Menos-class, Arrancar and Visored. As a standard energy blast, it consists of firing a powerful blast of concentrated spiritual energy at the target. While in most cases it is fired from the mouth, some Arrancar and Visored are capable of firing Cero from their hands, fingers and other parts of their bodies. This often requires the user to undertake a specific pose. The power, force, speed, and blast area of the Cero is dependent on the strength, spiritual power, and sometimes skill of the user, and there are some Arrancar who have even come up with their own variation of Cero. The charging and firing time for Cero also varies greatly, from relatively charging fast to firing it to instantaneously fire one without much charging. Despite the damage it can cause at long range distances, it is stated that the damage Cero cause as an explosion is more dangerous when used at close range. Must have at least 6 in SEI to use.
Garganta: How Hollows and Arrancar move to and from Hueco Mundo. It literally tears open the dimensional fabric separating the worlds, revealing a tunnel of whirling, torrential energy that must be focused and solidified to create a discernible pathway. Must have at least 8 in SEI to use.
Negación: Fields that are used to rescue fellow Hollows. Only the Gillian-class Menos have shown the ability to use it. Must have at least 9 in SEI to use.
High-Speed Regeneration: The ability to heal most injuries very quickly, with the exception of the destruction of the head or vital organs. Cannot be used during a battle.
Though most Hollows are simply transformed Human souls, a sub-group of Hollows known as Menos exist. Menos are conglomerations of hundreds of normal Hollows, resulting in a single composite entity of far greater strength than any normal Hollow. You CANNOT skip over the Gillian or Adjuchas levels of evolution.
Gillian: There are many of them and they all look alike. Gillians are huge, but they are slow and have beast-like intellect. Commonly attack in a group and one is powerful enough to be a challenge for a Lieutenant of the Gotei 13. Can start NV-3-NV-0
Adjuchas: Smaller than Gillians and far fewer in number. However, they're much smarter and stronger than Gillians. They're often the ones who lead Gillians into battle. Adjuchas are commonly solitary creatures rarely joining into groups. They are powerful enough to challenge a captain of the Gotei 13. Can start AD-2-AV-1.
Vasto Lordes: The highest level of evolution. They are extremely small Hollows, roughly the same size as humans, and are extremely rare in number. Cannot start as a Vasto Lordes; must be obtained IC. To obtain IC, start out as a Hollow and work up to EL-1.
