Finding that forcing order upon beings of emotion caused a splinter that inevitably lead to a major decline and weakening of the group, the vizards have reformed once more, though much more fluid then their previous iterations.

The latest attempt and unity of the vizards has emerged in the Tokyo metro area as the Army of Masks. Lead by a figure known only as The Soothsayer to outsiders, the Army of Masks operates primarily as the culmination of the voices of the masked members of Tokyo. Rather than operate full time, the organization runs a base of sorts in the facilities Cerberus had set up for the last vizard incarnation with a number of personalized defensive systems so even the former builders are unable to adequately find their way inside. Membership within the group is primarily a means of tracking the vizards to ensure their hollowed side is kept in check. Outside of select rallying instances, the members of the Army are free to freelance for any other organization they wish so long as three rules are obeyed:


1) Any loss of control to an inner hollow is subject to the death penalty at any other vizard’s discretion.
2) Activities which bring unneeded attention to the actions of the group are forbidden similarly by death.
3) Failure to rally when called is grounds for execution.

Techs:

[Shingai] - “Terrify”
Vizards are known to dominate the battlefield with their presence; their very reiatsu can strike fear into the hearts of those that stand against them. By spending 3% reiatsu, the user’s eyes being to go pale, almost bleaching into white. Any souls unfortunate enough to wander within 5 meters are immediately subject to an irrational fear of the vizard, relative to their reiatsu. For those who are less than 75%of the vizard’s reiatsu, they are stricken with terror and can only attack every other round. For those of relative strength (between 75%-125%), they are badly shaken and can only attack every two out of three rounds. Those outside of this range are able to almost withstand the assault and can attack three out of every four rounds. To keep this aura active, the practitioner must generate 5% rage per turn and can only sustain it for 3 rounds plus 1 additional round for each 3k reiatsu attained.



[Akumashugi] - “Devil Worship”
Cast adrift from Soul Society many vizards have found themselves going from the hunters to the hunted. This anger and confusion has welled up in many divided souls manifesting itself as an aura projected onto other Hollow-kind. Rather than strictly an enemy, Akumashugi allows the vizard to start on neutral territory as a member of the hollow-kind’s race. This allows communication between any hollow races even those normally deemed as too stupid to talk. However, the privilege is limited to how receptive the hollow is. This doesn’t mean that a vizard isn’t willing to take an advantage when it's presented to them. On exceptionally weak hollows, those under 500 reiatsu, a vizard is able to exert their force upon the being bringing them under the vizard’s sway relative to the difference between the vizard and the hollow. initially only 1 hollow may be under the vizard’s influence with another for every 10k reiatsu the vizard possesses.



[Fuzenodaku] - "Wicked Corruption"
Vizards by their very nature must maintain a balance between their own soul and that of their inner Hollow. Still, there are some exceptionally skilled individuals who have been able to push the boundaries when mediating between their Hollow's will and their own. By willingly allowing a degree of corruption by their inner Hollow, those trained in Fuzenodaku can momentarily augment their bodies with the power of their Hollowkin -- capable of spawning Hollow-like appendages from their bodies up to two meters in size. Each use of Fuzenodaku costs the user 5% of their Reiatsu and generates 5% Rage.



[Korusumoui] - “Devouring Fury”
Adapted as a way to basic in an inner hollow’s growing rage and use it to maintain some semblance of control over their body, allows a vizard to forcibly remove a small portion of their rage upon successfully hitting a target. By paying 2% reiatsu a successful hit with an attack or ability causes a vizard to vent 1% of their stored up Rage.
