Mystia Lorelei (ミスティア・ローレライ Misutia rourerai) is a night sparrow with an egocentric personality - at least she sounds arrogant - that enjoys infusing confusion and terror into the hearts of humans using her ability: a song that creates confusion in those who hear her. Her song seems to attract nearby monsters as well. She roams a road near the Human Village that Keine Kamishirasawa tries to protect, in search of humans to frighten. She is indeed feared by the locals as people around her become blinded by darkness. Some time later, along with Kyouko Kasodani, formed a duo combination called Choujuu Gigaku.

General Information[edit]


Ability to bewilder or drive people insane by singing

It is an ability to dull and weaken people's ability to make judgments through her singing voice. Despite that, since she pretty much only sings, her existence is an annoyance to others. The true worth of this ability is unclear, but as Yuuka Kazami said, it "isn't coming from inside you, but rather you're singing a song you're hearing from a faint voice," and as Eiki Shiki, Yamaxanadu said, "if you continue singing without thinking, the souls around you will become more than strange." Therefore, Eiki concluded, "that may be connected to an unprecedented grave sin." By Eiki's judgement, it seems like Mystia herself does not understand the power of her own songs.

Ability to inflict blindness to humans

Something that Night Sparrow also possess in real legends, it is an ability to inflict night-blindness on the opponent. Unlike the aforementioned song whose details are unknown, in the game she exercises this ability to her heart's content. Thanks to this, in battle time, nothing but the player's surroundings can be seen, and in the last spell, it becomes somewhat difficult to know what kind of danmaku it is. Incidentally, unlike Rumia's darkness, since it is always merely an ability to make the darkness unable to be seen through, it can be of no use at all during daytime.

King of winged insects

Although it is unknown how she does it, it is an ability to rule and subdue moths, sparrows, and countless other birds & insects. In the game, this can be seen in the form of spell cards and danmaku. At night, she mainly uses winged insects, and at day, mainly birds. She even used several hundred birds to restore the legendary sake.[1]

Character Basis[edit]

Attention: This section is a stub and it needs expanding with more information related to the section's topic. If you can add to it in any way, please do so.


Her full name is Mystia Lorelei (ミスティア・ローレライ). The "Lorelei" part of her name most likely is a reference to a German poem about the siren Lorelei, that also had a mesmerizing song.


Mystia is shown to have grey eyes and pink hair. She has pointed ears like an owl and light pink bird-like wings with purple highlights. She is dresses in white and brown clothing, where her hat and dress contain numerous bird-shaped ornaments.

Her alternative outfit in Phantasmagoria of Flower View the same, exept her clothes are green, and her wings have red highlights.



Imperishable Night

<Insert Summary>

Phantasmagoria of Flower View

During the events of Phantasmagoria of Flower View, Mystia aimlessly wanders around singing, hoping to catch and eat humans attracted by the flowers. Instead, she attracts (or rather, annoys) the other protagonists and ends up fighting each in turn.


Hopeless Masquerade
Mystia in HM

Mystia made a background cameo appearance in Hopeless Masquerade on the Hall of Dreams' Great Mausoleum stage. She is seen sitting high on the mausoleum whilst cheering something.


Kyouko Kasodani[edit]

Mystia and Kyouko Kasodani form a band called "Choujuu Gigaku". Kyouko has also been seen assisting Mystia with her stall.[2]


Spell Cards[edit]

Additional Information[edit]

  • Mystia's self-confidence makes her one of the only enemies that attacks as a midboss but does not run away to recover when defeated the first time, while another character who also does not run away after defeat is Yuugi Hoshiguma. Instead, Mystia immediately launches into another attack, firmly believing that she will win.
  • She was featured on the cover of the Imperishable Night "trial plus" disc.
  • Mystia, along with the Prismriver Sisters and Yuuka Kazami, are the only Windows-era-spell-card-capable characters not to appear in Shoot the Bullet.
  • She hates Yakitori (grilled chicken on sticks) because she is a kind of bird. So she started a grilled lamprey stand instead of a Yakitori stand. (It was believed that lampreys had eight eyes and are able to cure night blindness.) She uses this as part of a con-act: she will travel with her stand at night, use her power to make unwary travelers night-blind, then sell them grilled lamprey, and slowly remove the effect as they eat it, claiming that the lamprey was what cured them.
  • Mystia is also apparently a skillful cook, since even Aya concedes that her grilled lampreys taste good.
  • From Bohemian Archive in Japanese Red, Mystia says that she cannot read the tiny letters on the newspaper. Aya takes this as Mystia admitting that she cannot read. In Oriental Sacred Place Chapter 13, Mystia is shown to have the ability to read but somewhat struggles in it.
