Stage 2 – Nocturne’ Aureola De Los Cielos (Aura Of The Heavens): *Almas forms a second sword, however one of the swords is the real Almas while the other one(which has the power of Almas) begins to release a black mist into the air, which appears to vanish. This black mist cause the enemy loses focus and concentration. The copy acts as a reflection given off by the invisible light of the real Almas. This reflection allows the copy zan to memorize attacks from opponent and better protect itself and the real Almas from attacks. However, this method takes time to analyze the opponents method.
Stage 1 - Luz De Las Sombras (Light From The Shadows):
The bankai of this sword uses the stored abilities from opponents bankai and uses them, however Almas can only use up to the opponent’s first stage of bankai. Any stage of bankai after this cannot be learned. The only way for an opponent to erase their abilities from Almas is to defeat Almas in the same battle in which the abilities were learned. Otherwise it will become a permanent ability. The abilities learned from opponents, like learning any new ability, takes time and training to master so one may need years of training master stolen abilities.
Sword remains black however the blade is surrounded in a purple and blue energy beams that resemble string. This energy twists around the blade in opposite directions from each other(purple = clockwise, blue counter clockwise). These energy waves never touch the blade but protect the blade from outside interferences such as energy or anything physical. The energy waves are about 1 inch from the blade and are not sharp. Touching this energy will cause an electrical shock to enemies; the severity of the shock is dependent on the amount of energy surrounding the blade. Because the energy cannot cut, it is impossible to cut your enemy with this energy however, when swinging the sword the energy begins the trail the blade, which allows the blade to cut down enemies.
Niebla Nocturne’ (Nocturnal Mist):
When sword is released, blades form on both sides of the handle. The sword is black and when swung leave a purple mist that can confuse enemies. Upon contact with opposing swords, Almas absorbs and stores their opponent’s abilities through a black mist that begins covering the blade. As a result, the opposing Zanpakutou begins to forget their abilities, the more the opposing Zanpakutou does battle with this sword the longer the opposing sword takes to recover.
Almas Nocturnal - 32’ Katana blade covered in black chrome, which allows opponents with negative energy to reveal their reflection. The handle is black with purple diamond shaped patterns.
