A "manitou" is a spirit that will appear to Attean if he undergoes a spiritual process while alone in the jungle. Attean will become a man and a hunter after he knows what his "manitou" is.
After discovering his "manitou", Attean changes completely. He stops being a thief and starts helping others. Also, he becomes more caring and responsible.
At first, this change scares him. But later, he realizes how good it is to have a purpose beyond himself. Now, Attean wants to help his tribe find their own "manitou".
He travels through the jungle looking for a special tree called "the Tree of Life". When he finds it, he asks his "manitou" what he should do next. Then, his "manitou" tells him to cut down another tree and make a fire at its base. This shows Attean that his new job is not going to be easy.
Also, Attean meets another man who has just as strong a "manitou" as he does. Their meeting makes him realize that many people have different "manitou", but they all want the same thing: to be free.
Attean cuts down the second tree and makes a fire at its base.
He needs to rediscover his spirit. What must Attean do to obtain his manitou? He bathes himself, takes medication to purify himself, goes into the jungle, makes a wigwam, remains alone, and prays and sings for his manitou to appear to him. You just finished 15 terms of study! How did Attean's quest end? His manitou appeared to him in the form of a bird and told him that unless he went back to the village and married someone else, it would be killed to save him. Attean refused, whereupon his manitou transformed into a butterfly and flew away.
This story is about Attean, a Mayan boy who was very poor. One day an old woman called Nunaa gave him some food but only if he walked all the way to her house carrying it. This surprised Attean because no one ever gives anything away free. So he set out on his journey but had not gone far when he met another old woman named K'awilah who also gave him something to eat but only if he carried her water 10 miles across a river bed full of thorns and snakes. Again this surprised Attean because people usually don't give things away for free. So he decided to go ahead with both tasks even though they were hard.
Uryu is a highly powerful Quincy who prefers to use his abilities as a bow and arrow the most of the time. Uryu's bow evolves when he loses his abilities during the Soul Society Arc and reclaims them from his father. Uryu's bow can shift into a spider web-like energy field surrounding his palm in its third version. This new ability allows him to trap enemies within its boundaries.
When activated, Uryu's bow becomes even more powerful allowing him to shoot multiple arrows at once. This makes him very effective against large groups of enemies.
Uryu has two other attacks that use parts of his quincy abilities. The first one is called "Quintessence" and it works like a finisher move. It can only be used when there's no enemy around so it doesn't make sense to use it every time.
The second attack is called "Raijin" and it's basically Uryu throwing a knife at his target. Although it looks easy enough, learning how to control your body movements correctly takes practice.
In general, Uryu is a fun character to play as because you can use different strategies for defeating enemies. For example, you could focus on using his strong physical attacks at first then switch to using his skills once you have some experience.
