Soul Society (尸魂界 (ソウル・ソサエティ); Japanese for "Dead Spirit World") is an afterlife (also called the spirit world). This is also where Shinigami live and where most Souls dwell until they are reincarnated into the Human World.
Current State Edit
The Soul Society, home of the Soul Reapers, has been invaded by the Tris Andre Empire by the order of The Lord. They came down in drones with the sounds of the roaring Ravens screeching in the sky. Men known as Judges came to strike down the strong, Witches came to sweep the battlefield of those that showed little honor, but all Soldiers would strike without fear or hesitation. As this would drag on, buildings such as Barracks, the Soul Reaper Academy, The Primary Medical Bay and many other became naught but rubble and ruin.
In the course of the attacks in which the Tris Andre would over power the Soul Societies Defenses inside of the Seireitei, the Soul Reapers would evacuate as many as possible through the Senkaimon while others would retreat away from the Seireitei in to the Rukon Outer Districts with as many Rukon Citizens as they could gather.
Now the Tris Andre control most of the Seireitei aside from a few buildings and the underground sections, as well as the first 20 or so districts of the Rukongai give or take a few sections housing brave Soul Reapers fighting to maintain their homes. Those that were not killed on the battle field were taken as prisoners forced to fight in the Arena for entertainment, sided with the Tris Andre to hunt down what Soul Reapers remained in the Soul Society or became examples by torture for those that continued to fight.
Though this would not be the end of the outcome of the invasion, for it would be a single moment that would change the War entirely. From the reaches of the Rukongai would come the Hollows fueled by hunger and primal instincts. Though it would not be death that they brought alone, as it would be their very actions that would change and alter the spirits that were in the way. They would bend their very essence until the only thing left was Son and Daughters of the experiments which brought about; The Age of the Vaizards.
It has become a thought on the mind of many that remain in the Soul Society; have the Soul Reapers finally fallen?
