Yhwach is Father of the Quincy and the monarch of the Wandenreich. He also possesses the designation "A". As a baby, Yhwach could not see, hear, speak, or even move. However, Yhwach possessed the power to share out his own soul. Anyone who touched him received a fragment of his soul, which healed the wounds or ailments. The various aspects of each person were all imprinted upon the fragment of Yhwach's soul which they had received until those fragments returned to Yhwach at the moment of their host's death. He eventually found a more efficient and powerful way of doing this by having them drink his blood.
A thousand years after the Quincy were largely destroyed by the Shinigami, Yhwach begins a devastating campaign to wipe out the Shinigami.
Main article: Yhwach
"In the earlier battle, His Majesty has already scattered fragments of his own soul across all of Seireitei. This battle is a battle for His Majesty. Not only we of the Sternritter but also any Shinigami who have come into contact with His Majesty’s soul will give up their own souls as offerings to His Majesty upon their deaths. No matter who perishes in this battle it will only serve to bolster His Majesty’s strength and to extend His Majesty’s life. To His Majesty, battle is life itself. If he does not continue to absorb souls, eventually, he will return to the body he once had, unable to see, to hear, or even to move. His Majesty will never cease to do battle. There can be no escape. Both you and I must live for His Majesty and die for His Majesty." - Jugram Haschwalth to Uryū Ishida in Chapter 565.
