The Quinto Espada and representation of death’s aspect “despair”, Nnoitora Gilga was once the Octavo Espada when Neliel Tu Oderschvank was the Tercera. The large eye-patch covers most of the left side of his face as well as the remnants of his Hollow mask and his Hollow hole. He has the self-proclaimed strongest hierro of any Espada, enabling him to block attacks, even from blade wielding opponents, by skin alone.
That is so in character that it’s almost creepy! Thanks to Hana for sending this!
