In the past, Szayelaporro Grantz was a Menos Grande who, after eating countless Hollows, became a Vasto Lorde. Even as a Hollow, he was a feared scientist that carried out many experiments, such as creating artificial Adjuchas. Because of this, he rarely entered battle, as he lost control of his power when in battle and would kill Hollows that he wanted for his experiments. He later became the chief scientist for King Baraggan Louisenbairn.
When Sōsuke Aizen appeared and created the Espada, Szayelaporro was given the number 0 whenever he went wild in battle, though he held an unknown number when acting as a simple scientist. However, Szayelaporro wasn't satisfied with this station, desiring only to become the perfect being. To do so, he surmised, he would have to devolve back into an Adjuchas and evolve again. As he did so, he split from himself the undesirable portion that made him go crazy in battle, creating his brother Ilfort Grantz, who was also the first soul he ate.
Upon doing so, Szayelaporro lost a considerable amount of his power and was removed from the Espada. However, he completed his experiments sometime afterwards, granting him the ability Gabriel. It was this ability that allowed him to rejoin the Espada as the Octava (8th).
