Welcome to Bleach RP
Bleach Role-Play, while based heavily on the anime and manga, is not the 'world' of Bleach. It is an alternate universe, the characters present in the anime / manga do not exist. Call it fate, chance, or just the inevitable, Hollow and Shinigami kind have waged a war, they have attained the same transformations of Vizard and Arrancar, the Bounts remain, and Fullbring exist. The Quincy were massacred, and Las Noches was constructed. Espada reign and Captains lead. The circumstances leading to all this have simply changed.
