Toyosatomimi no Miko TD  ○6面ボス  聖徳道士


  豊聡耳 神子(とよさとみみのみこ)
  Toyosatomimi no Miko

  種族:聖人
  能力:十人の話を同時に聞く事が出来る程度の能力


  馬小屋で生まれ、幼い頃から才覚を認められた天才であった。

  やんごとなき生まれの彼女は、幼い頃から様々な訴えを聞く事があった。
  どうせ理解できないだろうと思って、役人達の愚痴のようなものを投げか
  けられることも多かった。
  しかし、神子はその全てを理解し、すぐに的確な指示を出すことが出来た。
  その噂が世間に広まり、聖人として絶大な人気を得たようである。

  彼女には天才ならではの葛藤があった。
  「大地は神々の時代から変わらず、海は水を湛えている。
   何故、人間は死を受け入れなければならないのか」
  次第に、彼女は死んでいく人間の運命に不満を持つようになった。



  神子の評判を聞きつけた青娥は、この人ならば間違い無いと思い、道教を
  勧めにやってくる。

  道教は自然崇拝であり、自然と一体になることで不老不死を実現すること
  が出来る、そういう内容であった。

  神子は心躍らされた。
  それと同時に、その宗教ではいつまで経っても国が平定しない、と青娥に
  伝えた。
  青娥は自分の願いを実現するためには国の政治などどうでも良いと思って
  いたが、神子はそうは考えなかったのだ。

  青娥はならばこうしましょう、と言って、表向きは仏教を信仰する話を持
  ちかけた。仏教は殺生を禁じ、規律の厳しい宗教であると伝えると、神子
  はそれならば国は落ち着くであろう、と納得した。


  神子は仏教を広めた。これは権力者以外が力を持たないようにする為であ
  る。その裏で、道教の研究を進めた。

  その結果、超人的な能力を発揮し、様々な伝説を残したのは皆が知る事で
  ある。


  そして、最終目的である不老不死の研究も怠らなかった。
  丹砂など様々な稀少な鉱物を使う事もあった。それが彼女の体を蝕んだ。
  本来不良長寿をもたらす筈の道術で体を壊してしまったのである。

  神子は今の体のままでは持たないと思い、尸解仙になることを決意した。
  尸解仙は一度死んで(もしくは死んだように見せかけて)、再び復活する
  秘術である。

  しかし自分一人で実行するのを怖れた神子は、布都に話を持ちかけ、ま
  ず先に眠りについて貰うように話した。
  布都は神子の力を信じ、実験台となったのである。死後、腐りもせずに眠
  り続けた布都を確認すると、自らも眠りについたのであった。



  神子の計画では、国が仏教に限界を感じ聖人を求めた時に復活する予定で
  あった。しかしその思惑ははずれ、仏教は千年以上もこの国を支配する。

  仏教の力ある僧侶達は神子の霊廟を封じ続けた為、復活することが出来な
  かったのである。神子の企みは筒抜けであったのだ。

  焦ることはない、いつ復活しても良いと眠り続けた神子であった。そして
  復活の時がようやく来たのである。

  その理由は、彼女の伝説が全て作り物であると言われ始めた事による。
  今現在では超人的な能力を持つ人間が居なくなってしまい、彼女の偉業は
  全て虚構だと思われても仕方ないことであろう。

  それにより彼女は霊廟ごと幻想郷に移動した。その時、幻想郷にはお寺が
  存在しなかったため、いつでも復活出来る準備が整ったのだ。

  しかし、そのタイミングで新しいお寺が出来てしまう。
  しかも狙ったかのように霊廟の真上にである。

  それが命蓮寺だった。

  神子は再び仏教の僧侶によって押さえつけられてしまうのか。
  それとも僧侶と戦うのだろうか。

  その昔、物部(古の神々)と蘇我(仏教)が死闘を繰り広げたように。

○ Stage 6 Boss  Shoutoku Taoist


Toyosatomimi no Miko

Species: Saint
Ability: the power to listen to ten people speaking at the same time


Born in a stable, she was recognized as a genius at an early age.

Born into a high position, she overheard many complaints when she was young.
People would let their tongues loose around her, assuming she wouldn't be able to understand them, so she heard a lot of idle grumbling from servants and such.
However, Miko was able to understand them - and provide very specific advice right away.
Rumors of her spread throughout the land, and she gained enormous popularity as a holy person.

She had her own troubles as a genius.
"The earth hasn't passed on from the age of the gods, and the seas are filled to the brim.
Why must humans be forced to accept their own death?"
She became dissatisfied with humans' fate to die one day.


Seiga, who had heard the rumours about Miko, was confident she'd found the person she'd been looking for, and came to spread Taoism to her.

Taoism was essentially nature worship, and by becoming one with nature it could bestow immortality on its followers.

Miko's heart danced in joy.
She also told Seiga that her faith could never lead to the subjugation of Japan.
Seiga had no interest for national politics in order to further her own goals, but Miko held a different view.

In that case, Seiga recommended, she should make the appearance of becoming a Buddhist. When Miko learned Buddhism was a strict creed that forbade murder, she determined it would be a good means to calm the nation, and accepted it.


Miko spread Buddhism throughout Japan, in order to ensure that those without political power would not obtain it. In the shadows, she advanced her own experiments with Taoism.

As a result, she obtained superhuman abilities and left behind a number of legends with which everyone is familiar.


She didn't neglect her work towards her ultimate goal of immortality.
She turned to the use of various unusual materials, such as cinnabar. This ruined her body.
She had destroyed her health because of the very Taoism that was meant to grant her immortality.
Thinking she'd be unable to wait long enough with the state her body was in, Miko decided to become a shikaisen. This was a secret technique in which she would die (or make it appear that she'd died) and be resurrected.

However, afraid to undergo the procedure alone, she reached out to Futo, and convinced her to go to sleep first.
Believing in Miko's power, Futo became her test subject. Once Miko confirmed that, after death, Futo continued to sleep without decaying, Miko went to sleep herself.



Miko had planned to awaken when the nation felt limited by its Buddhist precepts and felt the need for a saint. However, her calculations went awry, and the nation was controlled by Buddhism for over a thousand years.

Because Buddhist monks continued to place seals on Miko's mausoleum, she was unable to resurrect. Miko's plan had been foiled.

Miko judged she had no need to rush and could ressurrect herself at any time, and so continued sleeping. Finally, the time of her resurrection came.

The trigger was a rumor that the legends regarding here were all fabricated. Since, in modern times, there were no more people with superhuman powers, it wasn't surprising that tales of her exploits were seen as simple lies.

As a result, her mausoleum ended up in Gensokyo. Since there weren't any temples in Gensokyo at that time, she prepared for her resurrection to proceed whenever she felt it was necessary.

At about that time, though, a new temple was built.
And, whether by plan or by chance, it was built directly over her mausoleum.

That was, of course, Myouren Temple.

Would Miko let herself be held back by a Buddhist monk once more?
Or would she fight that monk?

A fight just like the battles between Mononobe (of the old gods) and Soga (of the Buddhists) had fought over and over so long ago?
