After a human dies, they become one of two kinds of spirits:
1) Whole -- A normal spirit that will pass on to the Soul Society peacefully. (Image on the right is an example. Notice the chain attached to his chest.)
2) Hollow -- A spirit whose intense emotions warp their soul, turning them into an angry mass of rage. They attack the living and the dead and devour their souls.

Menos are Hollows that consume other Hollows and become stronger in the Process. There are 3 classes:
1) Gillians: The lowest class. A Hollow formed from hundreds of ravenous Hollows. They are gigantic but slow and have the intelligence of wild animals. (Image on the left.)
2) Adjuchas -- Occasionally a personality of a Hollow transcends the others in a Gillian and becomes dominant. It can then consume other Gillians and become an Adjucha. Adjuchas are highly intelligent and dangerous.
3) Vasto Lordes - Some Adjuchas have the ability to evolve and become Vasto Lordes. They are the strongest among the Menos.
