A hunting captain of Vendenreich.
Quilges origins before he joined the Sternritter and served under the Quincy Emperor Yhwach are currently unknown, but we know that at some point in the past Yhwach granted his a part of his own soul bestowed with the letter J, enabling Quilge to use “The Jail”, and Quilge also served as the executive huning captain of the first Jagdarmee, an elite group of hunters who hunted Arrancar in Hueco Mundo to enslave them into the Wandenreich.
Quilges appearance is that of a tall but thin man, with a cleanly cut and shaven head of black hair. A notable trait of his appearance is his small set of rounded spectacles, he wears at all times. The spectacles themselves have, built into their frame, a two-way radio, which allows him to keep in contact with the Wandenreich HQ, even when hunting in Hueco Mundo. His attire is a variant of the standard Sternritter officer outfit, complete with a small white black rimmed officers cap, a small white cape overing the upper half of his body, a standard white top, pants that are kept together with a small belt and a normal set of black boots.
Quilge is a very arrogant and authoritative person, commanding excellence and complete obedience of all who serve him, and considering himself above all others who oppose or serve him. His subordinate’s note that Quilge can be quite uncivilized and critical of them should his orders not be understood properly, even going so far as to unceremoniously slaughter his own men for desertion.
Quilge is first seen In Hueco Mundo, getting captured Arrancar to line up for selection, telling them that they are going to hold a tournament in order to decide which of them lives, and which ones die, telling them that if they want to survive them they must kneel before him and lick his boots. Quilge however is attacked by two of the cloaked Arrancar who are revealed to be Loly Aivirrne and Menoly Mallia. Quilge begins to berate his subordinates for taking too long to protect him, before cutting down both of the women casually, commanding his men to beat them but refrain from killing them due to Yhwachs orders.
At this moment however he is attacked once again by Ex-Espada Harribels Fraccion, Emilou Apacci, Cyan Sung-Sun and Franceska Mila Rose. Cyan Sung-Sun steps forwards to battle Quilge, while the other two argue amongst themselves. The woman quickly begin to slaughter his men, before he steps in and attempts to reason with them, asking them to surrender now and they can be reunited with Harribel, however the woman turn him down, much to Quilges displeasure.
Quilge is not seen again until Ichigo arrives at the battlefield, having easily dispatched the 3 Arrancar without breaking a sweat. Quilge quickly expressed his interest in the arrival of Ichigo, quickly sending his men to restrain him and take him before Yhwach as a Special War Potential. Ichigo quickly realises that his enemies are the Quincy, much to Quilges amusement as he draws his own blade and and prepares to battle with Ichigo, firing off Holy Arrows from his blade towards the Shinigami. However he is shocked when Ichigo manages to catch one in his hand and throw it straight back to him, causing a large amount of environmental damage in the process. The battle continues own, with Ichigo using his Getsuga Tensho to counter many of the Holy Arrows Quilge fired at him.
Quilge quickly realises that his arrows are ineffective in dealing with Ichigo, and expresses intrest when Ichigo compares his power of Uryuu Ishida. However before they can continue the conversation, Quilge receives an order from Yhwach directly, commanding him to take care of Ichigo as quick as possible, forcing the Quincy to activate the Quincy: Vollstandig, causing Quilges appearance to change into that of something reminiscent of an angel.
He then beings to explain the Quincy: Vollstandig to Ichigo, noting that it’s essentially a superior version of the Quincy: Letzt Stil with virtually no drawbacks and increased power. Quickly using his newfound power to overpower Ichigo and force him into a defensive stance, however Ichigo is able to gain footing and attempts to use a Getsuga Tensho against Quilge, once again enveloping him in a large explosion. However, much to Ichigos shock, Quilge emerges completely unharmed, with Ichigo’s Shikai pressed into the side of his neck. Quilge then begins to quickly absorb all of the ambient reishi around them, including Orihimes Santen Kesshun, with his Vollstandig, before he is interrupted and knocked away by the arrival of Ayon.
Quilge wonders what this new monster I, before it begins to brutally attack Quilge, forcing him into a tight corner, before finally smashing him straight into the ground violently breaking his neck from the impact. Seemingly defeated, Apacci approaches Quilges defeated body commending him for his endurance and durability in the process. Apacci however is shocked Quilge quickly stabs her straight through the upper section of her chest, revealing he is still alive, as he snaps his neck back into place noting that he will have to inform Yhwach that the “blut” should be strengthened based on this new data.
Ayon attempts to attack him again, however Quilge quickly activates the Sklaverei, forcefully stripping the reishi of Ayons body completely, absorbing it into his own being, and taking on the certain characteristics of Ayon In the process. The women, quickly retreat with Orihime and Chad in tow and hide their presence, however it’s short lived, as Quilge manages to fine them once more and breach through their Muda technique, quickly absorbing all of the reishi from the shield and their own bodies. However, before Quilge could succeed in killing them, Ichigo manages to arrive just in time to stop him, having activated his Bankai to match the Quincy.
Quilge quickly attempts to steal Ichigos Bankai through the usage of his medallion, but it fails to work forcing Quilge to try and retreat. As he attempts to run, Quilge tries to make sense of Ichigos increased level of power before Ichigo manages to catch up to him and enter into another violent confrontation. During a break in the battle, Ichigo inquires to the reason why they are taking Bankai, however which Quilge refuses to divulge such information, he is blasted through the chest by a beam of energy fired by Kisuke Urahara, and falls to the ground defeated. Ichigo quickly uses this time to leave through a Garganta Kisuke had prepared for him, so that he could get to the Soul Society to assist them against the invading Sternritter and Wandenreich forces.
Quilge however, manages to rise up once more through the usage of Ransotengai, shortly after Ichigo was nearing his destination and manages to seal the exit and trap the Shinigami in a powerful and seemingly unbreakable jail of his own creation. Quilge beings to explain the purpose of his bestowed letter”J”, “The Jail”, and tells him that he will die fulfilling the order Yhwach gave him if need be, completely sealing away the Shinigami in the Dangai, forced to stand by and watch as the Soul Society crumbles. Quilge quickly turns his attention back to the others, and tells them that he wil finish them off before he loses the power he has absorbed with his Vollstandig, however his is swiftly cut vertically in two by an unknown assailant before he is able to do so, killing Quilge instantly.
Quilge is an incredibly powerful Quincy in service to the Quincy Emperor Yhwach, being part of his elite commanding force, The Sternritter, and the Executive Captain of the First Hunting Squad, a group tasked with the hunting and capture of all Arrancar in Hueco Mundo. As a Quincy, Quilge has displayed that he is highly skilled in both close quarters and ranged combat, as his weapons of choice for close quarters engagment is an ornate sword. His skill with his sword is great enough that he is easily able to contend with Ichigo Kurosaki in his Shikai state and defeat multiple members of the Arrancar with seemingly little to no effort
Like all Quincy, Quilges ranged combat employs the usage of Holy Arrows fired from a ranged weapon, in this case a bow that forms from the guard of his sword. His Holy Arrows are shown to be quite powerful, causing rather large explosions on impact, Ichigo also notes that his Holy Arrows appear to be stronger than Uryuu Ishidas, however Quilge questions this claim himself.
Quilge has also displayed the use of a high level Quincy technique called the Ransotengai, an ability that is rare even among Quincy, showing that he is likely skilled in many of their secret arts and spells. He has also displayed an incredible level of speed with Hirenkyaku, being able to move behind the equally fast Ichigo Kurosaki before the latter could even comprehend what had occurred.
|Blut Vene - A skill inherently known by all pure blooded Quincy. By allowing reishi to flow through their veins, a Quincy is able to dramatically bolster their defence to levels where they are able to fend off direct attacks from a Captains Shikai. The defence is not completely absolute however, as sufficient power is able to tear through it, such as power from a Bankai or by a sufficiently powerful individual.|
|Blut Arterie - The counter to Blut Vene, a skill inherently known by all pure blooded Quincy. By flowing reishi through their arteries‘, a Quincy is able to boost their damage potential to incredible levels. Very little else is known about this skill, but it's said to be the only way a Quincy is able to deal sufficient and decent damage to a Bankai wielding Shinigami.|
Ransotengai - Ransotengai is a very high level technique used mainly by elderly Quincy to remotely control their body, should they be incapable of continuing to battle under their own power. It allows the Quincy to control their body like a puppet, with numerous reishi strings attaching to their body to achieve said effect. The skill however is extremely rare among Quincy, as Mayuri Kurotsuchi had never encountered a Quincy capable of using the technique before Uryuu Ishida, in spite of having experimented on 2661 Quincys prior to their meeting.
|The Jail - Signified by the schrift of "J", "The Jail" is an extremely powerful skill bestowed to Quilge by the Quincy Emperor Yhwach himself. With this ability, Quilge is capable of creating barriers or "jails" from which it is nearly impossible to escape from. The cages themselves are extremely resistant to damage, as Ichigo was incapable of breaking one, even when utilizing the full power of his Bankai. The Jail however was later stated to be incapable of containing another Quincy, which is the reason Ichigo was able to escape.|
Biskiel is the name of Quilges Quincy: Vollstandig, a strange precedence as many other Quincy in the Sternritter either never named their Vollstandig releases or simply didn't reveal their true names. Quilges Quincy: Vollstandig is unique like every other release, taking on a large set of stylized reishi wings, boots, gauntlets and a large disk shaped halo on his head, which bears a star shaped emblem. With this power, Quilges speed, strength and destructive power is increased greatly, being able to completely outmatch Ichigo Kurosaki in direct combat, with his far superior speed and strength. This form also grants him unique powers specific to Quincy: Vollstandig, such as a superior version of his bestowed power, "The Jail", and the Sklaverei, a powerful technique that allows Quincy to forcibly absorb reishi in their vicinity.
Sklaverei is a powerful technique usable by a Quincy who has activated Quincy: Vollstandig. With it they are capable of using their basic power of reishi manipulation and absorption at a far higher level, outright dominating and enslaving reishi particles near them, ripping it from objects and even people by force. The benefit of this power is that despite the fact it is able to outright assimilate Spiritual Beings by simply absorbing them entirely, it also allows the user to absorb their power and assume their character traits, shown when Quilge partially transforms his body into that of Ayon.
