For an ad-hoc set up, it wasn't a bad one.

The underground training facility wasn't actually an endless expanse of desert reminiscent of Bikanel sands, it just looked like it. There were tricks of the layout at play that meant that while it was possible to walk for days down here, if one really wanted to, you would only actually be walking in an, admittedly large, circle.

Szayel had commandeered a corner of it and had a lab set up. It wasn't technically a mobile laboratory, and he had no intention of having it removed later, but it also wasn't the advanced machinery he'd have preferred to have in place. It would be sufficient for most of them, however.

Wonderweiss had tamed a beast beyond Kuja's abilities. It was astounding, and Szayel was sure that Aizen had been very impressed, and not at all smug the next time he'd seen Kuja. It had, however, raised an issue for Szayel.

His data on the power levels of a lot of the Arrancar was becoming outdated. They'd learned new skills, gained experience, lost battles and won others since the last time most of them had been tested. While their ranks may be judged primarily on reiatsu levels, they were influenced by their control over it, and for some of them, such as Wonderweiss, that had improved.

Szayel didn't foresee any sudden mobility in the ranks, though he couldn't rule that possibility out, but he couldn't abide having outdated data on the Arrancar.

He didn't have laboratories here capable of withstanding the full force of most of them. The infirmary was exactly that, first and foremost, and his private lab was too small for this kind of thing, so he'd requested a set up in the training facility, and been granted it. Aizen's inevitable good mood courtesy of Wonderweiss was probably to blame.

Stark was, of course, exempt from the trials. If he unleashed his power, he'd break the equipment,, and that was beside the fact that the only real challenger to Stark was Aizen himself, or perhaps Gin, neither of whom would be participating. This also meant that Halibel got an exemption by default, since her only challenger was Nel, whom she sparred regularly anyway, and besides, Szayel had other plans for Nel today.

She was there, though. Watching. She wasn't the only one. Szayel had been forced to bite a bullet and ask an outside observer to referee, and for that, he'd been told to ask Even. Szayel objected to Ryoka learning too much about the Arrancar, especially Ryoka scientists, but choices were limited, and Szayel wasn't in Draklor to call on other scientists.

Besides which, Grimmjow and his little band of reprobates respected Even, and Neliel liked him, for whatever reason. He'd already seen the power of some, too. He might not actually have much to learn today.

He looked Even over, and glanced behind him at the assembled throng of permitted onlookers and subjects for today before he turned his attention back to Even. "Of course, if you're busy, I'll understand." It was an offering. Even didn't have to be present if he didn't want. Szayel would just find some other way to monitor proceedings.

Normally he'd use Ulquiorra, and esamine his footage later for readings, which was less precise, but effective enough. Unfortunately, he wouldn't be able to do that now since Ulquiorra was one of the subjects.

From: [personal profile] thechillyacademic
Even had to admit that he was surprised to be asked along.

As a scientist, he figured that he would be the last person that Szayel could possibly want observing his precious Arrancar and, judging by his pleasant offer of escape, he was right. He didn't trust him. That wasn't much of a shock. Scientists in unique fields were entitled to caginess, especially when it came to outsiders observing the ongoing results of whatever experiments they had presided over.

It made Even smirk.

"No, no," he said, waving a hand dismissively. "I have no objections to helping."

He knew why he'd been asked along and he knew, since he had, that the order had come from above Szayel. He, of all the Ryoka, was not only scientifically minded, but had also witnessed more of the varied abilities of the Arrancar than any of the others. There was less to lose by allowing him see what was going on than Ienzo. He had an enduring dislike of Aizen and most of the other Arrancar barring Nel and Ulquiorra, after all. He also didn't maintain the same difficult rivalry with Szayel as Professor Hojo did.

Yylfordt gave his brother an irritated look. "Ev oui fyhhy pa macc uv y nykehk telgruma du so ihtanmehk, huf fuimt pa y knayd desa du cdynd, meddma pnu," he said, his tone airy despite his expression.

Calling Apache 'the fracción' was something he guessed Szayel was doing to try and annoy her. The bad thing was, it was probably working. While he was, of course, pretty sure he'd be able to overpower Apache, he'd still rather not spar against her when she was pissy.

He also couldn't afford to lose this battle. If he did, he knew Szayel would push to have his Espada rank stripped. What worried him was that Kadaj could kick his ass, but he was a fairly straight match with Apache, or had been so far. Call it stylistic synchronicity all you liked, it still had Yylfordt concerned.

He liked being an Espada.

He made his way to where Szayel had aimed his equipment. He'd helped set a lot of it up, and they'd given a fairly wide hotspot that would let Szayel monitor the fluctuations over the course of a short battle without risking having to repeat tests because the fight kept moving out of the field. He wanted Wonderweiss in it, he knew, and to check his power levels against Grimmjow, which meant pitting them both against people that would push them to their limits.

Assessing Apache was just another thing on the list.

Apache managed to keep her displeasure at being referred to as 'the Fracción' to a flat, if venomous, glare.

She wasn't particularly looking forward to this. She was able to fight equally with Kadaj, but Kadaj was like her -- light and fast. Yylfordt, who generally refused to spar with her, had been beaten by Kadaj, but was much more powerful in terms of defence and hit strength. It was a different type of battle. She had to be careful to avoid Kadaj's Zanpakuto, but that wasn't the case with Yylfordt. Yylfordt didn't have to worry about her having one, either.

"Is this Mask, or released?" She asked, hands on her hips, expression sullen.

Yylfordt looked over at Szayel, scowling at him. He hated the idea of having to fight Apache.

He hated the idea of having to hurt Apache. She was his fraccion, he wasn't supposed to hurt her, regardless of what Szayel said. Sparring was fine, but they were being asked to do something else, here. They were being asked to push, to their limits.

"I will personally pay whoever you go up against a thousand gil to kick your ass extra hard, bro."

He huffed, and drew his sword, reluctantly. He flashed Apache an apologetic look before he looked down at his sword, and let his mask manifest itself.

cierva: Grumpy. (I won't give in.)
From: [personal profile] cierva
Apache rolled her eyes at the brothers and brought forth her mask.

She knew very well that she was easily the weakest Arrancar present. It was all in the ranking, after all. She fixed Yylfordt with a hard, odd-eyed look, her expression flat and serious.

"If you hold back," she said, stepping into position for the match. "I'll take your spot. So don't hold back because I'm your underling, or a girl, or whatever other noble bullshit you're thinking of. I can take it."

jawmask: Mild look. (Second round - goin' down.)
From: [personal profile] jawmask
Grimmjow looked over as Yylfordt and Apache both sealed away their releases. Yylfordt's shrunk back down to being a sword and Apache's coalesced into her two bracelets again. He noticed that while Yylfordt sealed everything away, Apache kept her mask out, curved horn visible.

That, given the ranks that had just been called out, was probably for the best.

He stood up, brushing the sand from his hakama, and made his way to the designated battlefield, not looking forward to being pitted against Nel. He didn't dislike Nel, she was generally kind to all of them, but more than that, she was three ranks higher than him and he didn't know what her usual battle style consisted of, let alone that of her Resurrección.

He brought out his mask without waiting for instruction from Szayel, knowing the order was coming anyway.

From: [personal profile] declaregamuza
Nel walked into the ring of sensors with her arms folded and her expression serious. She sparred frequently, but it was usually with Halibel, or Ulquiorra. She'd not sparred Grimmjow before, though she'd seen him in action plenty.

She wasn't about to go easy on him just because of his rank, however. He wouldn't appreciate it if she did, and it would do him a disservice. She knew he was a capable fighter. There were potions available, and she could always patch up anything she caused once it was over.

She drew her sword and allowed her mask to manifest. The crack had never healed, lining up perfectly with the scar that ran down her forehead. She'd been struck by one of the Mist Swordsmen, using firebrand no less, and it had scarred Gamuza as well as Nel.

She looked at Grimmjow, her expression set. "Don't hesitate," she reminded him, flashing a dark little smile at him. She doubted he would anyway, he wasn't the type to pause for the sake of nobility. Although he did seem to have a twisted kind of honour, and only put in as much as he got back, if his fights with the berserker were any indication.

From: [personal profile] jawmask
"Wouldn't dream of it," Grimmjow said.

He didn't draw his sword. He knew he should, but he, like Apache who had gone before him, preferred to fight unarmed if he could get away with it. Swords were clumsy, he found, but they did extend is reach and provide a valuable tool in terms of defence, so he would use Pantera if he had to, and he knew he'd have to before he Released, but he didn't want to start the fight by drawing it.

As soon as Szayel gave the word, he used Sonido to close the gap between them, fist raised. A lot of people frowned on hitting girls, but Nel wasn't an ordinary girl. She was the third Espada, and hard as nails besides. Grimmjow's lower rank, a rank that reflected his lower power, gave him more than enough license to try and get the drop on her. He also knew that she wouldn't thank him for pulling the same noble can't-hit-a-girl bullshit that Yylfordt had with Apache.

A gentleman might have waited for her to make the first move, but he wasn't a gentleman.

Nobody had any illusions of that, least of all Nel.

declaregamuza: (And there's so much at stake)
From: [personal profile] declaregamuza
Nel had seen Grimmjow fight, so she knew he preferred unarmed combat when he could get away with it. She, she'd be forced to admit, had learned to fight with lances and spears, not with a sword, but she'd learned how to use a sword well enough. It probably put herself and Grimmjow at about equal comfort level with them, and once released, they were both wielding their preferred weapons.

Grimmjow was trying it now. Nel was almost disappointed in how predictable an opening move it was from him, but she had to give him credit for eschewing any reservations. He knew her rank. He knew what he was up against.

Nel caught his fist in her empty hand, holding it barely long enough for him to register that he was caught before she threw his hand away from her own and swung at his side with her sword. She wasn't about to hold him that close for too long because while it might have been a predictable opening move, what she'd also found Grimmjow was good at was adapting, and she'd rather not let him adapt a smack to her face this early on.

"You're too predictable," she scolded, "try harder."

extinguir: Battle: Armed (78)
From: [personal profile] extinguir
Wonderweiss scowled unhappily.

He couldn't see how this particular match-up was supposed to give Szayel the results he wanted. He was inexperienced, had barely handled his Zanpakuto and, when he had been trained to fight in Galbadia Garden, the weapon issued to him had been a gun, which didn't make matters any easier.

Ulquiorra, on the other hand, was a seasoned combatant, proficient both bare-handed and with his sword, when he felt the need to draw it, and a third seat in the fifth division of the Gotei 13.

To say it was an unequal match-up was an understatement.

Even so, he got to his feet, not looking forward to being knocked in the dirt a lot.

tozasemurcielago: (Battle: Talk)
From: [personal profile] tozasemurcielago
Ulquiorra had observed Nel and Grimmjow fight with bored disinterest. Grimmjow was vicious as always, but it was proof of Nel's power that she could withstand Grimmjow's Hollow's Limit technique well enough to use a simple spell to finish him.

He respected Nel, though he didn't always approve of her actions. He did not respect Grimmjow. It was reassuring to know that he wouldn't be forced to lend even a grudging respect towards Grimmjow any time soon.

He gave a small, silent sigh when his number was called. A match up against Wonderweiss was intended to test Wonderweiss, not Ulquiorra himself, and he didn't anticipate this would be a test. He would not require his sword against an opponent as inexperienced as Wonderweiss, and yet Szayel seemed intent that he draw it. Wonderweiss had impressive power, and significant potential, but as he stood right now, this was an unfair pairing matched in disparity only by the one Szayel tended to have come after it.

He walked into the range of Szayel's sensors with his hands in his pockets and his head down.

He looked at Szayel, unhappy.

"You know, Fury hasn't given me his full power yet," he said, not calling forth his mask because it was already out. "I don't think there's going to be anything in this."

He really needed to train, he knew. His skill with beastmastery didn't tend to be affected by his status as an Arrancar. It was innate, and not based on Chakra so much as strength of character, and of will.

tozasemurcielago: (Normal: Side eye)
From: [personal profile] tozasemurcielago
Ulquiorra looked at Szayel out of the corner of his eye. He liked Wonderweiss, as much as Ulquiorra could be said to like anyone that wasn't Ienzo-san or Aizen-sama.

He also, quietly, doubted that any one of them had been gifted their Hollow's full power. He'd come close, but it wasn't under his own control when he accessed it, and none of the rest had achieved anything close that they'd admitted. The likes of Szayel and Nnoitra and Grimmjow would brag, loudly, if they had attained such.

He turned his attention to Wonderweiss, his expression set in his natural frown.

"You cannot hurt me," he said, "this is fact. The difference in our power levels and experience is too great. Any injury you may by chance inflict, I will recover from." Near instantaneously, if required. Such was the nature of Ulquiorra's power as an Arrancar. It wasn't limited to mere speed and strength. "Use this to show what you can do at your full strength. Hold nothing back. If you do, I will have to force you to utilise your full power."

Even nodded, interested to see what sort of fighter Szayel was.

He, like himself, seemed the type who was, for the most part, a non-combatant. If there were others who could do the fighting, he would stand back and let them. However, that didn't mean that he was unskilled, and if Szayel was similar, he could be interesting to observe.

He watched Wonderweiss drop his release form and walk to where the others were watching, not looking too worse for wear, all things considered. When he had moved, he looked up to see Nnoitra, all spidery arms and legs, striding into the testing area, his absurd weapon out of sword form and propped up on his shoulder.

If his weapon was out like that, it meant he must have already activated his mask, but Even couldn't see where he kept it, if that was the case.

Nnoitra hadn't particularly been looking forward to this match up. He would have preferred Grimmjow, or Ulquiorra, both of which would have been more of a challenge than beating the shit out of Szayel.

He wouldn't deny that beating the shit out of Szayel wouldn't be cathartic, especially considering how much of a monumental cocksucking prick he was on a daily basis, but it wouldn't be a good way for him to show off the extent of his power, not like Wonderweiss had, or Nel, Grimmjow, Apache and Yylfordt.

"Let's get this over with," he said, flatly. "I hope one of you can perform a Sending."

"We need to battle to show that?" Nnoitra asked derisively, the bridge of his nose crinkling as he curled his lip.

His weapon looked unwieldy, and ridiculous, but in deference to Szayel being a piss-weak academic instead of a proper fighter, Nnoitra had only released one of the blades and left the downward-pointing one out of the picture.

"Never thought I'd get an officially sanctioned excuse to beat you into the dirt," he added, swinging his shouldered weapon down off his shoulder without any visible effort.

Even watched the readings. Nnoitra, his pre-Masked stats a mystery on account of him entering the 'ring' with it already activated, nonetheless gave out far higher readings than Szayel did. True to their rankings, the information before him suggested that Nnoitra's resting Chakra scored above Grimmjow's.

He saw Szayel's Reiatsu spike upon his mask's release and almost expected his opponent's to fluctuate in response. It didn't. Nnoitra's remained level, not giving so much as a wobble due to either apprehension or excitement.

Szayel, apparently, wasn't worth the effort as far as he was concerned.
