紅魔館の客人

A Guest of the Scarlet Devil Mansion

パチュリーは紅魔館の主人・レミリアの友人で、主に図書館に住み着いている魔法使いだ。紅霧異変の際に、異変解決のために侵入してきた主人公にちょっかいを出して懲らしめられている。 図書館にある本は、パチュリーが新たに開発した魔法がしたためられた魔道書や、外の世界から持ち込まれた書物などが大量に積まれている。だが、図書館は紅魔館の地下に位置しているため埃っぽいだけでなくカビ臭い。生まれた時から喘息に苦しむ彼女には酷な環境のはずだが、普段からほとんど本を読んで過ごしているパチュリーは図書館からほとんど出てこない。少なくともここ100年ほどはこもりきりだったようだ。喘息のため魔法が唱えきれないこともあるというのに、それでも埃っぽい本から離れられないとは、難儀な話である。

Patchouli is a magician who is friends with Remilia, the owner of the Scarlet Devil Mansion, and has settled into its library. During the Scarlet Mist Incident, she made an attempt to interfere with the intending protagonists who were there to resolve the incident, and was punished. The library contains a huge number of books, ranging from grimoires on new magic developed by Patchouli herself to books brought in from the outside world. However, since the library is located in the mansion's basement, it's not only dusty but moldy. She's suffered from asthma since birth so she should be having a hard time in such an environment, but as she spends most of her time reading books she hardly ever leaves the library. She's been shutting herself in there for at least 100 years. Even though her asthma can prevent her from reciting spells, she still refuses to be separated from her dusty books. It's a hard life.

魔法使いとして

As a Magician

幻想郷に魔法使いは何人かいるが、生粋の、つまり生まれた時からの魔法使いは今のところパチュリーくらいだ。後述のアリスは修行の果てに人間をやめて妖怪化した魔法使い、主人公の一人、魔理沙は修行をして魔法が使える人間、というわけだ。肉体面では人間と基本的に変わらず、むしろ通常の人間よりも脆弱なくらいと言える。自分自身の喘息を魔法で治そうという発想があったかは不明だが、治癒とはまた別ジャンルなのかもしれない。そんなわけでか、体調が良いときはいつもより長くて強大な呪文が唱えられるようだ。

There are several magicians in Gensokyo, but Patchouli seems to be the only natural-born one, in that she's been a magician since birth. Alice, who we'll discuss later, ceased being human and became a youkai as a result of her studies, while the protagonist Marisa trains to be able to use magic as a human. Physically, she's fundamentally the same as a human, or perhaps even more fragile. It is unknown if she's ever thought of trying to cure her asthma with magic; maybe healing is an entirely different school of magic. In any case, when she's in better condition she's able to recite more powerful spells for longer.

魔法を使って攻撃をしてくる「わかりやすい敵」です。とにかくシステムを使ってキャラクターごとに異なる違う方法で攻撃してくる「技のデパート」みたいなものを作りたくて。魔法で弾幕、ってわかりやすいじゃないですか。ゲームの深みも出ますしね。動かなくても強いけど、身体は弱くて外に出ないという僕の中の魔法使いのイメージを、そのまま出しています。

An easy-to-understand opponent who attacks with magic. Anyway, I wanted to create a character who used some kind of system to attack in different ways, like a "department store of techniques." Making danmaku with magic is easy to understand, right? It draws on the depth of games too. In my mind, magicians are powerful without moving, have frail bodies, and don't go out much, so that's how I made her.

他のキャラと違って動きや躍動感を無くしたいと思い、座りポーズにしています。表情はジト目だけれど不機嫌に見えないように、というのと帽子と頭の大きさのバランスも気を使うところです。

I wanted to do away from the dynamism of the other characters, so I put her in a sitting pose. She's gotten reproachful eyes, but I also wanted to focus on balancing the size of her head and the size of her hat so that she doesn't look too sullen.

The library contains a huge number of books, ranging from grimoires on magic newly-developed by Patchouli herself to books brought in from the outside world. However, the library is located in the mansion's basement, so it's a dusty place that reeks of mold. Her asthma makes it a terrible environment for her to be in, but it's been said that she's been cooped up in there for at least 100 years.
