"You are puppets of a tradition pretending to be important. The coming of a golden age has no place for you. Your Soul Society is an empty, self-indulgent diversion...signifying nothing. The lost glory of the Arrancar Five will turn all of your supposed accomplishments to dust!"
The Los Cinco Arrancar (其の破面五(そのアランカルご), sono arankaru go; Spanish for "The Five Arrancar", Japanese for "The Arrancar Five") is a sect of Arrancar, similar to the Espada, who have seized control of Hueco Mundo in hopes of crushing thier enemy, the Order of the Seijin and finally, Soul Society. They are led by an evil Shinigami, called Takashi Sora.
Los Cinco Arrancar, also simply known as the Arrancar Five, first appeared when Akujin, a rouge First Division captain, founded their order in Hueco Mundo in the shadow of his master, Aizen's, Espada. They lived a very short lifespan, as the Shinigami soon caught wind of their operations. The Tenth and Eleventh Divisions both led a massive invasion of Hueco Mundo and managed to defeat Lucia Botta, it's Cinco member.
To retaliate, Akujin launched an invasion of the Seireitei, which led to the stronghold's destruction but also to the death of Akujin and his remaining Arrancar.
