*Fans have different interpretations of her appearance. The most common one is accepting the circle cut as a canonical depiction of Rin then adding colour to her with blonde hair, a pink blouse with a red underdress ribbon, as well as having socks that're a light pink in colour. [[:File:Rin Satsuki (Fanart).jpg|This]] is an example.

*Many fans suggest that Rin's more of a [[Fan-made characters|fan-made character]] rather than an official character by [[ZUN]] since certain facts of her character (such as her appearance and colouring) were suggested by fans. In addition, the fact that she doesn't really have an official appearance in any ''[[Touhou Project]]'' work only helps to support this.

Rin Satsuki (冴月麟 Satsuki Rin) would have been the third playable character of Embodiment of Scarlet Devil but was cut during production due to time constraints[1]. A trace amount of data about her name was left in the game data. Not much is known about her, but the text "冴月 麟" (or the hex code "8D E1 8C 8E 20 97 D9", Shift-JIS encoding) can be found in the "東方紅魔郷.exe" executable file near Reimu Hakurei and Marisa Kirisame's line of code.

General Information[edit]

There's traces of information scattered in relation to Embodiment of Scarlet Devil that could be associated with her. In the games data, there are two attack types: Flower Sign (花符) and Wind Sign (風符). An alleged portrait of her (or an otherwise unknown character) appears on Team Shanghai Alice's circle cut in the Comiket when Embodiment of Scarlet Devil was first released (shown in the info box on the left). Additionally, shown in the data files by using a tool to rip graphics from the game, there is an unused character in the Stage 1 enemy sprites that looks much like the character in the portrait, although there's a possibility that this was originally going to be Rumia.

Occupation[edit]

Based on a remark by Marisa Kirisame in her Extra Stage [2], Rin is theorized to be a nurse, but this is pure speculation. However, in modern Japanese popular culture, the kirin is often conflated with the unicorn (cf. Final Fantasy, Monster Hunter), which has healing powers; this would suggest a connection between kirin and nurses.
