PostSubject: Quincy   Sat Jan 03, 2009 6:14 am

Quincy are a clan of humans who, over many centuries, became spiritually aware. In doing so they devised their own brand of spiritual powers; they can absorb spiritual energy and then manipulate for offensive purposes. They most commonly reshape spiritual particles into various types of bow and arrows, but can also concentrate spiritual energy into the form of swords or explosives. At their height, Quincies used their powers to combat the hollows, protecting the inhabitants of the human world with a success rate greater than that of the Soul Reapers. Unlike the Soul Reapers, who purify the souls of hollows allowing them to rest in peace, Quincy destroyed the hollow, soul and all. This created an imbalance between the worlds of the living and the dead, threatening to destroy the universe. To prevent this, the Soul Reapers almost exterminated the Quincy, leaving only two Quincy to survive into the current Bleach storyline and creating a great animosity between the two groups. Tite Kubo created the Quincy as rivals to the Soul Reapers, resulting in long-range weapons as a counter to the standard Soul Reaper zanpakuto and white clothing as an antithesis to the black Soul Reaper uniform. Their name stems from their symbol, a five-pointed star, and the prefix "quin," meaning "five," as well as Kubo's liking for the phrase "Quincy archer."

Ryūken Ishida
Ryūken Ishida is the father of Uryū Ishida. He is initially portrayed as a bitter and cold Quincy who detests his own people, believing they to be wasting their time training their abilities. Ryūken dedicates most of his time to the Karakura Hospital. Ryūken is a very skilled Quincy, capable of defeating two incomplete arrancar with only three arrows fired from his one-handed bow. He has inherited his father's Quincy Cross. He calls himself "the last Quincy", believing Uryū to be too talentless to deserve the title. Though he disapproves the Quincy lifestyle, since it is impossible to make a living if one kills hollows all day, Ryūken restores Uryū's lost Quincy powers, under the condition that his son is to never associate with Soul Reapers, although this command is immediately disobeyed on the rationale that Ichigo is only a substitute Soul Reaper and that he is acting independently of Soul Society's orders. Ken Narita voices him the Japanese series and Michael McConnohie in the English dub.

Sōken Ishida
Sōken Ishida is the father of Ryūken and the grandfather of Uryū. He trained Uryū in Quincy abilities throughout his childhood, becoming his mentor in the process. Sōken tried to make amends with Soul Reapers by advocating a new system of response to hollow attacks: Quincy would be the first-response squad, protecting humans from hollows until Soul Reapers arrived to help. His proposal was never accepted, and he was eventually killed in a hollow attack. Later in the series, Mayuri Kurotsuchi reveals to Uryū that this was his doing; he delayed the Soul Reapers meant to protect Sōken so that he could study Sōken's soul for his research. According to a reflection of a photograph seen in Uryu's glasses, all that was left of him in the end was his head. Eiji Maruyama is his seiyu and David Lodge his English voice actor.

Also, Uryū Ishida
