Most of the Quincy were destroyed by the Shinigami over 200 years ago in order to prevent the destruction of the world.
Quincy are spiritually aware Humans able to absorb and manipulate Reishi into spiritual weapons. They fight using a power from outside. Spirit Weapon: The weapon that Quincy create by gathering the Reishi in the air. The only limit to a Quincy’s ability to create and fire arrows is their own stamina and ability to absorb ambient Reishi. Spiritual Awareness: As a spiritual being, the Quincy can sense Hollows and other spiritual beings at a significant distance, and tell in what direction they are in. Quincy have an acute perception of Reiatsu.
At some point within their history, the Quincy began to distinguish themselves based upon an individual’s ancestry and adopted the practice of true-breeding. The final point of contrast between the Quincy and Shinigami is their respective choice of uniform. While the Shinigami wear traditional, black, flowing hakama, the Quincy wear white, form-fitting, high-collared tunics. These bear some resemblance both to Mandarin Chinese dress and to cassocks of Catholic priests. This gives the Quincy a distinctly “foreign” or “Western” style compared to the Shinigami.
A five-pointed cross which appears in various aspects of Quincy powers and culture. The Quincy were created by Yhwach. He is their King and his blood flows in every Quincy. The Quincy were scattered all over the world at one time. They were relatives of magic hunters who specialized in the war against Hollows.
However, when Bazz-B was a teenager 1000 years ago, it had been centuries since the last such Quincy was born, and most people thought of them as urban legends because of this. Since the origin of the Quincy, many years passed within Soul Society trying to appeal to the Quincy that the handling of Hollows should be left to the Shinigami. The Quincy refused to accept the situation. As time went on, the number of Quincy increased and the cycle of souls became more unstable, forcing the Shinigami to reluctantly wipe out the Quincy in order to maintain the balance of the world. The Quincy line was closely monitored over the decades, as their numbers continued to dwindle.
Later the Quincy advanced the idea that since they were already among the living and still more numerous at the time, they could act as “first responders” to Hollow attacks: protecting Humans until the less-numerous Shinigami could send a representative to finish the Hollow off. According to the song, the seal would be broken and the king would regain his heart after 900 years. 90 years after, his intellect would return. Shinigami govern the souls between the Human World and Soul Society, which maintains a balance that if not kept would result in the mutual destruction of both worlds.
All souls, including Hollows, are subject to the Shinigami governance of maintaining the balance. While they are trained to confront Hollows in order to defeat them just as Shinigami do, the biggest difference between the Quincy and Shinigami, since ancient times, is whether to kill or not to kill Hollows. The Shinigami purify Hollows with their Zanpakutō and send them to Soul Society, while the Quincy killed the Hollows. Captain Mayuri Kurotsuchi surmises Quincy are not hostile to Hollows so intensely simply because of tradition because hostility is born from different ideologies, but it is impossible to hate something which has no will or ideology, and theorizes there is only one reason one could maintain such a grudge for so long: the innate fear which comes of something that threatens one’s very existence. Quincy cannot tolerate the existence of the Soul King.
This has become a hatred that lies deep within their blood, even if the Quincy in question are unaware or against it. This was proven when Ichigo Kurosaki’s Quincy blood reacted, causing him to involuntarily cut down the Soul King. Archery: It is the most used form of combat among the Quincy. Since they’re still human, maintaining a distance from highly dangerous Hollows as well as launching numerous attacks on multiple opponents gives them a great advantage offensively and defensively. Gintō: A capsule-shaped tool used by Quincy to store their Reiryoku.
It is an antiquated tool, but the use of it allows Quincy to perform certain techniques. Hirenkyaku: An advanced Quincy moving technique. It allows for high- speed movements by riding on the flow of Reishi created below the user’s feet. Blut: A Quincy ability that gives a practitioner inhuman defensive and offensive capability. By making Reishi flow into their blood vessels, Quincy increase their attack and defense power drastically. Blut for attack and defense work using two different Reishi systems, so they cannot be used at the same time.
