Okina Matara (摩多羅 またら Matara Okina) is the main antagonist of Hidden Star in Four Seasons. She is a God and one of the Sages of Gensokyo.

General Information[edit]

Okina appeared as the Final Boss and Extra Stage Boss in Hidden Star in Four Seasons.

A God of many faces and roles, she has remained out of sight for some time. In the past, she was one of the Sages of Gensokyo behind its creation. Ever since, she has maintained its balance and protected it from the Outside World.


She is said to be a classic God, having no mercy for those who disrespect her, and blessings for those who revere her. Though "hidden", she is ostentatious, confident and prideful, wanting to stand out and make herself known to others. Seemingly dismissive and even insulting toward her servants, she also seems to pity them, wanting to free them of their servitude under her. However, she has also used many before in this role, and believes those she recruits have no right to refuse her.


Creating doors on the backs of anything

An ability similar to Yukari Yakumo's Gaps. Plants and causes a door to appear on the back of anything, even living beings. This allows Okina to travel wherever she wishes, or to send something somewhere else, as long as a door is attached. For example, the door of the seasons that gives the player character their ability to use a season's ability allowed Okina to expel the player character away to where they gained their ability. Okina even steals the magic from the character that was gathered through the use of the season's door.

The doors connect to the extradimensional Land of Rear Doors (後戸の国 Ushirodo-no-Kuni), through which a number of other doors of Okina's creation is accessible.

Controlling vitality and mental energy

Entrusted to Satono Nishida (mental energy) and Mai Teireida (vitality), the two bring out the latent ability and potential of all things through their hectic background dance. Somehow, Okina also uses this ability to maintain Gensokyo's balance.

Background Information[edit]


Okina is the name of a type of ritualized Noh, derived from Shinto. Matara is from the first part of Matara-jin, on whom Okina is based.


She is based on Matara-jin (摩多羅神), an obscure, multifaceted God primarily of the esoteric Tendai Buddhism sect, introduced by Ennin. Commonly seen with two servants, Teireita and Nishita, Matara-jin came to be called, associated, conflated with or the patron of many assorted things and deities.


Okina's Appearances[edit]


Hidden Star in Four Seasons

Okina emerges from obscurity, wanting to find new replacements for her servants, Satono and Mai. She orders her servants to plant doors on the backs of others and empower them, with the purpose of bringing out their best to see if they are worthy of being Okina's servant. Empowered fairies cause the seasons to go haywire, which causes the player characters to act. Deeming the player characters unworthy, she defeats them by taking the power they've gathered and expelling them to the beginning using the door of seasons planted on their backs. However, after gathering the boundary between seasons instead, the player then returns and defeats her. This is merely an excuse, though. Okina's true goal is to stand out and make a show of her power, to engrave herself in the hearts and minds of everyone in Gensokyo once again.


Satono Nishida and Mai Teireida

Loyal servants of Okina. Vessels of her power, they act as extensions of her and unflinchingly obey her orders. They seemingly lack the free will to question otherwise. They are becoming less human due to Okina's influence and have little memory of their past, yet maintain their personalities. Whether because they're no longer useful or she pities them, Okina seeks to find replacements for them, as she does periodically. However, after failing to find any, she is fine with retaining them. Satono and Mai do not know they are searching for their own successors.

Minor Relationships[edit]

Yukari Yakumo

Another one of the youkai sages. It's implied in Reimu's extra stage in Hidden Star in Four Seasons that the two are familiar with each other.
