Personality: The role of a queen is the one, that she has played for at least the last thousand years, if not more, and it certainly defines her character. Loved by her subjects like the warmth of rising midsummer sun, and feared by her enemies like a force of nature, she is a queen, who rules her lands with an iron grip and compassion - as just and gentle towards her own people, as she is ruthless to those, who oppose her and represent everything she has weeded out in her own kingdom. Highly persuasive and skilled in diplomacy, Katherine has an absolute say in everything within her territory, but she is not blind to words of advice or deaf to the pleas of those, who have not wronged her personally. She does her best to carry out justice, and while she does not give a second though to executing a direct opponent, she is above judging those, who repent their past sins - indeed, the queen can be considered quite forgiving and tolerant in her personality, though it would be best not to test the limits of her tolerance.

She carries herself with elegance, and addresses matters with a vivacious voice, which may both hint to a certain flaw of her character - Katherine is vain, flamboyant and self-absorbed to a degree. She's a hedonist at heart, and enjoys the pleasures and luxuries, that her subjects lavish her with, in turn for praise and rewards. As passionate as she is intelligent, it is no easy task to deceive her, especially due to her vast arsenal of knowledge and exceptionally accurate sense of character, particularly when it comes to motives, desires and fears of others - should she have lived in the common era as a human, she would have became a psychologist, out of her interest and insight in the minds of others. Appreciative of loyal allies and subjects, as well as determined to have what she wants, she has gathered an army of trusted soldiers around her, whom she knows will never betray her when given a chance to do so, with her skills of leadership.

That is not to say she has no flaws. Katherine was a monster, before she became a queen, and certain traits of her personality show, that she has not changed much since. A beautiful, luminous rose, that has deadly thorns coated in toxin, would be a fitting description to her darker nature - for she can be as venomous as she is gentle, when the situation demands. Her voracious tendencies have simply changed into ambition and greed for unparalleled power and beauty, lust and gluttony for satisfaction and glory - and into less material desires, such as immortality and mystical artifacts. When in war or combat, she can think of diabolic tactics to thoroughly destroy her enemies and make them pay for opposing her, while in politics, she displays a tendency to be uncompromising when it suits her agenda. Controlling, willful and occasionally manipulative, her negative traits can be seen as more dominant, when brought to the right light.

History: Born from the ashes of an ancient empire, Katerina was among the few to survive the fires, that the king's enemies laid on his inheritance. And surviving, meant being the hungriest; a trait, that allowed her to devour and grow stronger in her new life, that preceded the flames, that had embraced her old life. There were others, but they had known no hunger before, and could not possibly embrace their new gift like she did - so, they became her next meal. Years and years, she'd survive in the same way she had survived death. Eating. Preying. Consuming. It was all she knew, until new doors opened to her.

Of course, it wasn't an actual door. It was a crack in the world. A pathway between the world of those, who do not know hunger, and of those, who have became their own hunger. A world, that was harsh on the weak, but a world that fed the strong. A chance, that she'd decide to take. And while it took years, this world learnt to fear her and lavish her with gifts to appease her, for she was something, that it had known never before. Both beautiful and deadly, they called her the "White Rose", a legend which all hollows would learn to know in time, and her prey fell to their knees once they saw the beauty of what was about to devour them. Eating the souls of her own kind tasted so much richer than devouring the souls of living - instead of a brief moment, that a human soul existed in her lips, the taste of a centuries-old hollow could last for years. Slowly, her soul opened to other things than the hunger, though it was still the first and foremost thought on her mind. Feelings, that she thought she had lost, when she was reborn.

A flow of clear thoughts. Drive, passion and ambition. Love and hate, grief and joy. And in no time, the hunger for souls was overthrown by an entirely new being, that knew it's name once again. It was not the "White Rose" anymore, despite the name being associated with her to this day, but a woman with the name of Katerina. And after picking a new name for her, not only was the "White Rose" the most beautiful hollow to walk the desert, but the most cunning as well. Before she knew it, there were others around her - eyes loyal to her beauty, swords that cut down everything her thorns could not. They did not follow her out of fear nor did they double-cross her when they had the chance. They followed her, because she was a just, kind leader to them, and offered them protection from the claws of beasts. In return, when her love strengthened them to point of not needing protection from others, they did not leave her, but stood by her side.

It's still argued when exactly did Katerina and her crew find their way into the lands of eastern Hueco Mundo, but the outcome remains the same - they did. A land of peaceful prosperity and ground, that had been cured of it's infertility, the East was, and still is, a legendary paradise in the world of monsters. It was known as a sanctuary for those, who sought refugee there, and a place, where more docile and benevolent hollows found their home - rumors had it, that even the North couldn't match it in prosperity, but only those, who settled there, could know it for sure. Somehow, the ancient king of this land, had built it from an encampment of a band of hollows, into the only real civilization in the cursed world they lived in. You couldn't find a place other than the East in Hueco Mundo, that had laws unrelated to the whims of it's ruler - you couldn't find an army as great and righteous as that of the wise and kind-hearted king. But most of all, the land signified satisfaction of hunger to those, who were driven by it.

And by some coincidence, or perhaps fate, Katerina met the king, who must have been the most handsome hollow, that ever walked the sands. Dyos - that was the king's name - had heard of the reputation of the White Rose; the hungriest and most beautiful hollow, that has ever lived. But instead of telling his militia to arrest them, due to the threat that her hunger could pose, he welcomed her and her companions to his court with an open heart. The king and his men feasted and celebrated with their guests, after which he would give her a tour in the palace privately, and they would talk for hours about the architecture and the beauty of his rose gardens. As the evening turned to night, he asked if she wanted to know the secret of his land, to which she agreed, her head blinded by curiosity. Dyos took her to the wine cellars, located beneath the palace, and proceeded to remove his hollow mask, revealing his human face, with only a fragment of his mask located on his jawline, for he was no ordinary hollow, but an arrancar. He placed a chalice of red wine in the hand of surprised Katerina, and whispered into his ear, that should she drink from the goblet, she would be freed of her hunger and become like him. She hesitated, but she drank the chalice empty, for humanity was what she hungered the most of all things she could pursue.

The next thing she knew, she awakened to the feeling of sun in her skin, on a balcony made of white stone. Her head lied in the lap of the king, who was now completely stripped from his disguise of hollow, and as her eyes opened, he greeted her with a smile. Upon questioning what he did to her, he laughed and said, that she could see for herself, pointing on the reflective surface of glass doors, that led inside to the castle. Katerina rose from the stone railing of the balcony, looked at herself. She looked human. There was no tracks of white, hollow-like features. The only reminder, that she hadn't dreamed of being a hollow, was the red rose and it's green leaves on her hair - the mask fragment, that was left of her hollow form. She was clothed in white, shoulderless chiton, but by touching her chest, she could feel the small hollow hole on her navel. Dyos had risen from his seat on the railing, and appeared behind her in the reflection, just as she touched her lips with her fingers. No hunger, she gasped, to which the king explained, that she had met the final stage of her evolution, and had no need for hunger anymore, as an arrancar. He turned her around to face the sunlight and evergreen land, that continued endlessly to the horizon from the balcony.

This can all be yours, he promised with a whisper. Ecstatic with the power, that she felt surging underneath her skin, she'd turn her face over her shoulder for her lips to meet his, and reply, that it already belonged to her on the moment he laid his eyes on her. True, he'd whisper, before their lips entangled.

Overnight, she'd become a queen of one of the most powerful men in the world they lived in. Katerina would appear to her travelling companions in her new form, and offer them the same, which had been offered to her - a chalice of wine, that was created out the thousand souls, that had died in the land that the kingdom now stood over. A concentration, that forced the soul of hollow to it's ultimate end in it's evolution, and caused it to go through arrancarification process, which had allowed the kingdom to prosper without having to hunt for innocent souls to devour. All of her followers took a sip of the wine, and all of them joined her in the court as part of her personal guard as arrancars. After a week, the coronation of new queen and her marriage to the king was celebrated in the kingdom of East, and the arrancar took a different name - Katherine - to signify her transformation and rebirth. She was lavished with gifts from her husband, allies of the kingdom and even complete strangers, who brought tributes to the legendary White Rose.

For the next thousands of years, she ruled as the Queen of Hearts, an epithet given to her by the citizens of her kingdom, who adored and rejoiced her reign by the side of righteous King Dyos, and feared for her popularity among her people by her enemies. Their union wasn't initially based on love or duty, but on destiny, for who could be a better pair to the most beautiful queen than the most beautiful king - it was set in the stars, that they would meet and love and reign. During the next centuries, the kingdom of East saw it's expansion as an independent area in the southeast joined into it, and the lands seemed to grow even more fertile and prosperous - the military was strengthened during the eras of peace, and the lands knew no wars during the reign of Queen Katherine and King Dyos. While the Lord of South seemed bitter about the expansion, no true ill-will was born between the two kingdoms. Most importantly, the East and the North formed an alliance, after a visit of Queen Alyss and her consort, King Graven, to the Palace of Sun, that acted as the heart of East and home to it's royal rulers. However, despite her new-found humanity as an arrancar, Katherine grew sad for the fact, that she could not bear children to her husband like the Queen in the North could. She became obsessed with finding a way of making her body fertile, but closest moment to carrying life inside ended in a miscarriage - however, Dyos comforted her, and his love healed her wounds.

The fall of North would shake the peaceful kingdom in the East like an earthquake. A kingdom compared to that of their own was burned to the ground by a malevolent usurper, who desired no conquest, simply utter destruction. Dante, "Blood Wraith of the West", who rose to power via regicide and controlled his subjects with fear, nearly drove the nation into war, but Katherine and Dyos decided not to directly engage in battle with him. Instead, they struck a deal with Karasu and his militia in the South, to prevent the events of North happening ever again - and this time, they were ready to keep their promises of marching to war if their ally would be attacked. The East welcomed refugees, who had survived the sacking of the kingdom, into their own lands and soon sent men to occupy the North - however, nothing but a few strongholds were established, simply to keep the Blood Wraith away from claiming the lands, rather than to expand their own territory. Ancient watchtowers on the borders were put to use for the first time in thousands of years, due to the unease, that Dante awakened across the realm.

East was far more powerful than the kingdom in West, no matter how much it's brutal king aroused fear - it's strategic location was far away from his lands, and it had grown stronger in the span of thousands of years, whereas Dante had risen only a century ago. But what the King had forgotten in the era of peace, and Queen never experienced, was, that enemies like this did not fight wars by the rules. His army wouldn't march to their lands and declare war. No, his claws would attack them from the shadows of their palace. And when it did, it was too late. A silent assassin passed through their barriers, and laced the goblet of the King with poison, which would slowly began to eat away his strength. When the symptoms manifested, the damage done was beyond repair.

Katherine grieved over the sickbed of her husband for a year, until the faint and transparent spirit, that was left of him, left her side for good. She hadn't sent her spies to the West, because she knew, that no one else but Dante could have engineered such a cruel way of dying - even though the Blood Wraith wouldn't see his most dangerous obstacle withering away, he knew the pain it would cause his inner circle and kingdom. He, of course, assumed it would weaken the region, but did quite the opposite. Dyos and Katherine would ensure, that the king's death would not shake the kingdom's loyalty by strengthening the Queen's position - thus, for a year before she actually became an autocratic sovereign, she had already taken on the duties of both a king and a queen. This was solely possible due to the fact, that Dante's choice of assassination had given them a year to sort things out. The transition was not painless, but nonetheless successful, and chaos did not emerge in the deathbed of King, unlike what Dante had wished for. Instead, the grief of an empire turned into hatred and vindictiveness, directed towards the West. When she buried her husband, Katherine cried no tears.

All she could think, was the ways she would make Dante suffer.

And Katherine wasn't content on killing him. She wanted to erase his existence from the world, to completely destroy him - and to do so, the Queen needed a King. It was only after Graven Fel rose from the depths of forgotten names, and built a small militia around himself. It was nothing compared to the army of her empire, that had been built in the span of thousands and thousands of years, but she did not doubt it's capability of serving as an ally against Dante. She withdrew to her chambers to plot the demise of her enemy and to gather troops, knowing, that when the day came, and the Lost King unleashed his wrath on the West, she would be ready and seal the fate of Blood Wraith. If Graven wasn't strong enough to take him down, he was strong enough to weaken him, so that Katherine could. Dante would never see her coming, because he thought the East was scattered without it's king. He wouldn't see her armies marching on his lands, until her blade was coated in the blood of his men. And before his death, she would enjoy torturing him, until he cried for her to kill him. And she'd gladly comply.

Intended Role: Queen Katherine is the widow of late King Dyos, who ruled one of the four great kingdoms of Hueco Mundo, more specifically a large portion of the continent in the east. After the current plot, her dynasty will be the only one of the original four, that is left in it's full power - after Dante has been subdued, the queen will be the last, and probably the most fearsome, obstacle left in Espada's way of controlling the areas. She will be making her move on the end of the arrancar civil war, and becomes an important ally - or an enemy - for the newly formed organization. She would prefer an era of peace and coexistence, but will go to war if the Espada threatens her ambitions.

A List of 'Innate' Skills:
An Arrancar will be innately able to perform, without further notice;

High-Speed Regeneration

In addition of the universal, well-known base techniques of an Arrancar, her released power is great enough to completely heal ANY and all injuries she has sustained in her sealed form, upon entering her Resurrección. This is an innate ability possessed by all Arrancars, but because it's often forgotten and because I don't want to be blamed for cheating in a battle, I am making a note of it here.

Fighting Style: (How does you character prefer to fight? Close range? Medium range? Long range? Do they know specific martial arts? Weapon forms? Are they a guerilla warfare style fighter? Etc.)

Personal Abilities: [Limit 3]

Name: Poisonous Reiatsu
Effect: Katherine's reiatsu has a sweet scent, it gives off a pleasurable warmth to those around her and it takes on the beautiful color scale of a rainbow - however, beneath it's harmless disguise, it has a diabolic effect on those, who are exposed to it. The fact, that you smell it's sweet scent and feel a pleasurable sensation on your skin, actually means, that a drug mixture has entered your neural system; an aphrodisiac fueled by reiatsu it's infused with, that alter the chemicals of the opponent's brain so, that it's effects become irreversible, even if the foe possesses a resistance against poisons. It possess a wide variety of effects, which largely depend on how long has the opponent been exposed to it as well as the tier of target it affects. These effects can be divided to seven stages.

At Stage 1, only seconds to minutes from exposure to Katherine's poisonous aura, a target has very few symptoms; their libido and pleasure receptors are constantly stimulated by the aphrodisiac, and their pupils become dilated. When a target enters Stage 2, the pleasure becomes a powerful euphoric feeling, mixed with growing lust and arousal, and both their heart rate and blood pressure are increased, to the point of causing spontaneous nosebleeds and mild breathlessness. At Stage 3, euphoria becomes pure, unspeakable ecstasy, and the target's senses are sharpened to a point they are extremely sensitive to any light, sound, touch and smells - it's difficult to concentrate on anything else than the pleasure. Other symptoms include occasional cardiac pain, headaches, dry mouth and mild sweating. After hours from last exposure to the reiatsu of Katherine, a victim at Stage 3 will experience withdrawal, that last for 2-3 hours.

At Stage 4, a target's surface veins start turning slowly black in color, and their ecstasy will begin to turn into a mixture of intoxication and pain, with the latter taking a more dominant effect. Symptoms include increased agitation and irritability, moderate dehydration and sweating, as well as decreased muscle coordination. After a few hours from last exposure, a withdrawal of twelve hours will ensue. In Stage 5, the black veins have covered most of the victim's body - at this point, the target is afflicted with severe, agonizing pain, and the previous pleasure seems like an ancient memory. The target suffers from mild hallucinations, blurred vision, severe dehydration, feverish sweating and nausea, as well as violent impulses and increased irrationality. Withdrawal takes effect after hours from last exposure and lasts around twenty-four hours.

Getting on Stage 6 means, that you've lost the fight. There is no pain or pleasure at this point, and your veins have returned to normal - you'll feel heavily sedated, with an incapacitating numbness of body and mind rendering you helpless and virtually unconscious. However, your sleep is not peaceful, for you're trapped in a nightmare, and you've lost all contact with reality, as a result for high concentration of the drug in your system - this stage will leave an eternal crack on your mental health... if you survive. Unless you are removed from the source of the poisonous reiatsu within the next twelve hours, you will fall to coma and awaken only after the poison has completely left your system. Withdrawal emerges only hours after you awaken, and lasts for several days.

Due to the fact, that the ability is constantly active, a long-term exposure results in Stage 7 - and most of whom are affected with this stage, are among Katherine's inner circle. It's effects are not clear to others, but an outsider could easily say, that her social magnetism seems almost... magical. Indeed, her aura has an ability to arouse and encourage loyalty in individuals, who spend a lot of time around her, with her longest friends being literally addicted to her comforting and pleasing aura. This stage too, possesses withdrawal effect, that kicks in after a week or so, and lasts for several days. Unlike with the other stages, Stage 7 doesn't appear after to follow Stage 6 - rather, it's born out of numerous exposures to Stage 1. That said, Katherine can stop or slow down the progression of the aphrodisiac, but not accelerate it.

Name: Illlusive Roses
Effect: The true affinity of Katherine's power, is obscured in darkness and mystery, but what can be perceived from her abilities, it's theme seems to often dance around the vegetation and the minds of her opponent. Her "illusive roses" are a great example of this. Due to her natural affinity with roses, these plants will begin to grow around her, when she wills it; they will sprout from the walls of a building, from the ground, from the corpses of already dead enemies. However, their purpose is not to decorate the area around her. In fact, they emit a faint aura to the area around them, that is, like the reiatsu they are born out of, poisonous - however, the toxin within the roses has a different effect. Their aura is laced with an arsenal of powerful hallucinogens, that allow the partially sentient flowers to inflict hallucinations, delusions and sensory illusions on a victim in a range of fifty feet - a group of roses in a single spot, can affect multiple targets at once and in a range of fifty feet multiplied by the number of roses. The color of the roses play a large part in their ability.

That said, Katherine has a selection of seven colors for her illusive roses - a ruby red, a golden yellow, a sapphire blue, an azure blue, an emerald green, an amethyst purple and a vermilion orange. The color of rose indicates and dictates the nature and the theme of hallucination, that it's victims will experience; this is because the color is actually a byproduct of the specific chemicals, that are present in the petals of the flower. When activated, five roses of a single color can be conjured in the first post, after which the ability will consciously grow one rose of the same color per every additional post. Another color can be summoned, but only one per post - if the new color is in close proximity to an older color, it will cause the older color to become impotent and unable to manifest it's abilities. As with the first color, the another rose breed summoned will create a replicate every additional post. When all of the roses are destroyed, they do not grow more, though Katherine still can create a single color once in a post.

Resurrected Form Name: Amante de la Rose [lit. "Lover of the Rose"]

Resurrected Repsentation: The physical representation of her resuscitated hollow powers, is a red rose, which others often associate with her beauty and loving nature - however, it's true significance is more than just that.
