"Men heap together the mistakes of their lives, and create a monster they call Destiny"
Juan Vásquez, is the Cuarta (4th) Fukkatsu in the Escudo. He was previously a Shinigami, but was experimented upon by Aizen, he was the only one of his batch who nearly completed the process, but in the last minutes of the transformation, something went wrong, and so his inner hollow took control. Years later, the Escudo leader found him wondering in Hueco Mundo, and turned him to a Fukkatsu, at first he was hesitant, but soon he agreed for the leader convinced him about his "destiny".
Juan is a teenager-looking Fukkatsu. He has brown hair and hazel eyes, he wears a white cloth with a tie. He has a pale complexion and is of normal height.
Juan is a soft speaking guy, he doesn't talk that much. Although he is like this, whenever in battle, he keeps murmuring silently different words, as though hesitating to attack. He believes much in destiny and will do everything required to fulfill this, but as of now this "destiny" is not known. He was once a shinigami who was exposed by Aizen to something that turned him to a Hollow, this is very weird, for the fact that no matter how strong he is, his transformation continued, as though his method of transformation is a lot different than the Vizards. The item used is not known, but is seems that Aizen lost in while battling someone. He was found by a man, possibly the Escudo Leader, wondering in Hueco Mundo, and used the same item to transform him back to being a Shinigami, but it seems that the item doesn't only do that, it gave him awesome power, but on the contrary, his fate was sealed from the time he agreed to the Leader's offer, the item forced him to obey, some sort of mind-control, but not exactly like that, so he is destined to serve him, and has no choice, that was his destiny and his reason to fight.
