AN APPLE DISASTER!!

Apple Girlington (アップル・ガーリントン) is the stage 1 midboss and boss.

Concept

Apple Girlington originally is a joke character created by Toby Fox, during an improvisation where he would make Touhou music on the fly.

Apple Girlington probably doesn't have too much of a meaning, other than sounding funny and being a parody of a touhou name, as Toby Fox made that name up as a joke.

Appearance

This specific design of Apple is original, first seen in Wonderful Waking World.

She is wearing a mobcap and an apron with a red and white stripped pattern, a black dress and green shoes with pink ribbons on them.

She can also be seen holding an apple basket.

Story

While roaming around, trying to share apple with whoever she can find, she stumbles upon the protagonist. She, of course, try to have them taste one of her fruit.

種族:妖怪(林檎)

能力:リンゴを熟させる程度の能力


妖怪の種類がそれぞれ。花妖怪、冬妖怪、隙間妖怪…と、もちろんリンゴ妖怪もいる。

アップルは普段リンゴを熟させて無差別に他人にあげようとする。
他人といえば他の妖怪、人間、たまに低級の神様。
結構しつこくて早く熟させたリンゴは正直味も微妙なため、みんなに避けられている。
「幻想郷のみんなはいつか私の成果の味を知る!」と主張する。

いつか他人に認められるためではなくて自分のためにリンゴを熟させるかもしれない。
この日が来たら必ず最初の一口をいただく。

Species: Youkai (Apple)

Ability: Capable of making apples grow


There are a lot of different types of youkai. Flower youkai, winter youkai, gap youkai, and of course... apple youkai.

Apple spends most of her time growing apples and trying to offer them to random people, those people being other youkai, humans or even lower gods.
She is very insistent, and her rushed grown apple aren't the tastiest, so everyone just tries to avoid her.
"All of Gensokyo's residents will one day know the taste of the fruits of my labor!" she proclaims.

Maybe, one day, she will stop making apples for recognition, and instead start making them for herself.
If that day ever comes, trust me, I will be the first one to take a bite out of one of them.

種族:平家蟹

能力:髪を切る程度の能力


12世紀に本州と九州を分ける狭い海峡に、平家と源氏の間に争いが起こった。
最初は平家が勝っていたけど、結局敗北が必然ということに気づいた。
生き残った平家の心は源氏への恨みで充満しており、敵に捕られるより自ら海に飛んで溺死を選んだ。

平家の恨みは壮絶なもので、それからそこいらのカニは源氏への怨恨を持つようになったとされる。
平家蟹の甲羅がしかめる侍の顔に似ている理由もその怨恨のせい。

セレネはその平家蟹の一人。
でも何故か恨みを一つさえ持ってない。
恨みがない妖怪はつまり存在意義のない妖怪と同義であり、妖怪の社会にうまく溶け込めなくてよく一人だった。

そのうち誰もセレネのことを気にしなくなった。自分さえも。その時、自然に幻想郷にたどり着いた。

当然もっともふさわしい住む場所は霧の湖だった。
平家蟹の社会では理髪師はありふれた特別ではない仕事だけど、様々な妖怪が住んでいる湖においては美点となった。
幻想郷の妖怪は目立つことやかっこいい見た目を大事にするから彼女の才能も大事にされた。
低級妖怪の間では割りと人気になった。

生まれた時から初めて存在意義があると思った。

Species: Heikegani

Ability: Capable of cutting hair


Back in the twelfth century, a battle between the Heike clan and the Genji clan took place in a narrow strait separating Honshū and Kyūshū.
While the Heike had the upper hand at first, they ultimately realized their defeat was inevitable. The surviving Heike flung themselves into the sea to drown
rather than be captured, theirs heart full of enmity for their enemy.

Their grudge was so powerful, that it is said that all the crabs in the area since then bear rancor for the Genji Clan, explaining why their shells
are imprinted with the scowling faces of samurai.

Serene is one of those crabs.
But for unexplainable reasons, she doesn't bear any grudges toward anything or anyone.
A grudgeless grudge youkai is basically a youkai with no reason to exist, so she had trouble finding her place in youkai society and was often left alone.

Eventually, when no one seemed to care about her anymore, not even herself, she ended up in Gensokyo.

The Misty Lake was obviously the goto place for her to stay.
In a society of heikegani, being a hairdresser is extremely common and unremarkable, but in a lake with a diverse variety of youkai, it suddenly became
her biggest strength. Youkai in Gensokyo care a lot about looking special and cool, so her skills were extremely appreciated.
She became somewhat popular amongst weaker youkai.

For the first time in her life, she felt like her existence had a purpose.

種族:付喪神(扇風機)

能力:物を回せる程度の能力


元は外の世界の住民で、守矢一家と共に幻想郷に来た。でも当然、当時は脳がないただの機械だった。
アンティークなファンだったため結局物置に置かれて徐々に忘れられた。

でもある日、大量の魔力の影響で幻想郷にいる者と同じような付喪神に変わった。
もう必要とされていないと感じ、神社から出ていった。守矢のみんなを尊敬していたけど接しようとしなかった。
それから幻想郷中(妖怪の山を除いて)をうろついて人間にいたずらを仕掛ける。

表情が豊かで、興味津々で、保護欲が強くて、馬鹿げた性格だ。

空が破れた時、気になってもっと近くで見たかった。
そのため、付喪神となり妖怪の山から出てきてから、初めてそこへ戻ってきた。
山の上の上空でせっかちな人間の少女と出会った…

Species: Tsukumogami (Electric fan)

Ability: Capable of making objects spin


Native to the Outside World, she came to Gensokyo alongside the Moriya when they first moved in. Of course back then, she was but a simple mindless device.
She was a very old model, an antique. Because of that, she was eventually sent in a storage room and then forgotten about over time.

But one day, during a certain incident, a great amount of magical power turned her into a tsukumogami, just like many other tools all over Gensokyo.
Feeling like she wasn't needed anymore, she left the shrine. While she respected the Moriya, she had never tried to make any contact with them.
Since then, she mostly roams around, playing pranks on humans, while avoiding the area around Youkai Mountain.

She's really expressive, curious, silly and protective.

When the sky broke, she got intrigued and wanted to get a closer look. So for the second time since she gain consciousness, she went to and over the mountain.
It was there, high up in the sky, that she met a very impatient human girl...

Messenger of the Dragon Palace, she is to watch over Gensokyo's atmosphere and weather.

When the rain started to fall, she immediately noticed something was off.

Out of Place Magical Girl

Yuuto Ichika (一華 優朋 Ichika Yuuto) is the stage 4 boss.

Concept

Yuuto (aka "Bluechouli") is the OC of an artist known as "Koshi L." (aka Amyskye145). Her character was accused of being a bootleg version of
Patchouli Knowledge due to shared traits (being a magician, similar design motifs), and she was bullied as a result. To cheer the artist up
and encourage her to continue her passion for drawing, a group of Touhou fans (including ChairGTables, who was a huge fan of the character)
had made various fanarts and games involving Yuuto, making the character well-liked and popular as a result.

Name

Originally, Yuuto's name was chosen from a "top 1000 Japanese names" list found on a Google search, without regard to the fact the name is more often masculine than feminine.[1] During her appearance in Super Ledgehop: Double Laser, the game's Japanese translator MSLabo102 gave her name a set of feminine kanji.

Appearance

Yuuto has long blue hair, with just as blue eyes.

Moons and stars decorate her blue dress, mobcap and shoes.

She is holding a spell book that she likes to keep close to her.

Story

Yuuto is a human magician going from world to world, while looking for her missing mother.

Her presence in Gensokyo follows a certain series of events that occurred within another world, populated by anthropomorphic animals fighting each other.

She tried to confront the protagonists for reasons depending on who she's fighting, but was in the end no match for the incident resolver.

パチュリーではない。彼女の名前は一華優朋で、パチモンの名を克服しようとしてる若い魔法使い。
行方不明の母を見つけるために各世界を巡ってきて、その旅に新しい魔法を覚えて新しい友だちを作る。
同時に、彼女の旅は過去の約束を守るためのものだ。一番最強な魔法使いになろうとしている。

ある日、母を見つける希望を心に持って擬人化された動物が棲む変な世界にうろついてきた。
その世界の住民はいつも喧嘩を売ろうとしてきたから優朋は自ら乱闘に参加した。
何故かいくつかの世界が混じり合ってきて、おかげでいろんな人と場所が集ってしまった。
実は幻想郷はその世界の一つで、数人の住民(霊夢も含めて)もいた。

エーテル界の異変の黒幕が倒されたあと、霊夢は2つの世界に繋がるポータルを封印した…
優朋がまだ幻想郷にいるにも関わらずに。
幸い、戦っているうちに天人と仲良くなり、しばらく天に住まわせてもらった。

優朋は普段世界から世界へと簡単に行き来できるけど、何故か幻想郷の結界だけが出ることを許さなかった。
霊夢を探すために天界から降りてきたところ、有頂天に突然大きな地震が起こった。
大きな船が空から落ちてきて天界において最も高い山頂に堕ちて、おまけに結界を貫いて破いてしまった。
天界は大混乱になってしまった。
しかし、災難はそれだけではなかった。ひどい豪雨がすぐに降り始め、そのせいで天人とはぐれてしまった。

でも雨の中うろついていたら偶然に別の誰かに出会った…

Species: Human

Ability: Capable of using telekinesis and magic


No, this is not Patchouli. Her name is Yuuto Ichika, a young magician trying to overcome her status as a bootleg.
She travels through worlds, looking for her missing mother, while learning new spells and making new friends along the way.
Because of a promise she made, she also sets off to become the strongest magician ever.

One day, in the hope of finding her mother, she wanders into a strange world inhabited by anthropomorphic animals.
Everybody there seemed eager to pick fights with everybody else, so she joined in on the brawl.
For some unknown reason, a lot of other worlds had collided together, bringing people of all kind, and linking different places together.
Turns out, Gensokyo was one of them. Some of its resident were there, including Reimu.

Once the culprit of the aether world incident was defeated,
Reimu sealed off all the portals linking the two worlds... with Yuuto still wandering about in Gensokyo.
Luckily for her, she had made friends with a celestial in the meantime, and she invited her to stay in Heaven for a while.

Yuuto normally doesn't have much issue going from one world to another, but for some reason Gensokyo's barrier prevented her from leaving.
Just as she was about to descend from Heaven to look for Reimu, an earthquake struck the whole of Bhavaagra.
A giant boat had fallen from the sky and had landed on top of the highest of Heaven's peaks, all while piercing and breaking the barrier in the process.
Panic in Heaven ensued. The catastrophes didn't stop there, as torrential rains then started to pour down from the sky.
As a result, Yuuto lost sight of her celestial friend.

But while roaming outside in the rain, she stumbled across someone else...

Wonderful Waking World - Feza's Profile
種族:族長(鳩)

能力:地を見つける程度の能力

ヌアの初めてのペットはただの鳩だった。

ある日、とある神様がヌアへ手を伸ばして、任務とその任務を果たす為の強力な力を与えた。
その力がフェザにも漏れたことで彼女も神に近い力の小さな欠片を獲得した。

ヌアがうっかり洪水を起こした後、命を助けたペットの中にはもちろんフェザがいた。

「無名の場所」は時空が思うように働かない、おまけにそこにある全てを均等化、言い換えると浄化させる副効果もある。
肉体がある生きている者は長年その場所に居続けると生きる手段と死ぬ手段をどちらも失う。老化をせずにただ存在するだけ。
この状態になった者は族長と言われる。族長という言葉を命名したのは初めて族長になったヌアだ。

フェザが族長になった後、その効果と漏れた力のおかげで人間の体でいられるようになった。
ヌアのペットの中で人の姿を持つのはフェザだけ。

能力を使ってヌアと他のペットたちの新しい住む場所を探そうとする。彼女の使命はもう行った世界の記録や居住可能な世界を見つけること。
製図家と言えるような役割。

フェザは結構厳しい性格で、物事が計画通りに行くと喜ぶ。ヌアの性格に付き合うのが面倒くさいと思う事もよくある。
それなのにヌアの最も忠実なペットだ。それはずっと変わらない事実だ。

大方舟が初めて損傷を受けた時、フェザは一瞬だけぶつかるものを見た。それはリヴァイアサンだった!少なくともそう見えた。

幻想郷に沈んだあと、船が受けた損傷をできるだけ早く修理するよう任命された。
修理が終わって帰るころ方舟にうろついているせっかちな人間を見つけた…

Species: Patriarch (Dove)

Ability: Capable of finding land


She was but a simple dove, Nua's first pet.

One day, a god reached out toward Nua, and gave her a mission along with a huge amount of power to accomplish it.
That power "leaked" onto Feza, giving her a small fraction of that god-like power.

Of course, she was one of the pets Nua saved during the flood the latter accidentally started.

The nameless place is one where time and space don't makes perfect sense, and has the side effect of "equalizing" or "purifying" everything in it.
Material living beings who stay in it for an extended period of time will lose any way to live or to die, so they just... exist and stop aging.
Beings that have reached that state are called patriarchs. It is actually Nua who invented the term, since she's the first one to ever reach this state.

Once Feza reached that state as well, coupled with the power she once received, she gained the ability to maintain a human form.
She is the only one of Nua's pets to be able to do so.

Using her ability, she helped Nua find a new home for her and all of her pets.
She is in charge of keeping track of where they already went, and to find potential habitable worlds.
You could call her a cartographer.

Feza has a pretty strict temperament -- she likes when things follow a plan. It's sometimes a real chore for her to deal with Nua's personality.
But despite that, she is and will always be her most devoted companion.

When the Great Ark was damaged, she briefly saw the thing they collided with: a Leviathan! Or at least it looked like one.

Once they sunk into Gensokyo, she was tasked with fixing the damage done to the ship as fast as possible.
After the repairs, on her way back, she found a hasty human roaming about inside the ark...

Music Themes

From Beginning to End ~ Drunken Prophet

Nua Kouzui (洪水 ヌア Kouzui Nua) is the stage 6 boss.

Concept

Nua Kouzui is based off of Noah, the biblical patriarch who's famous for being the main actor of the tale of the Genesis flood.

Name

Nua is a declension of "Noah", the name of the aforementioned biblical patriarch on which she is based.

Meanwhile, "Kouzui" (洪水) is a Japanese term meaning "flood".

Appearance

Nua has blue eyes and brown hair. Befitting a ship captain, she wears a white marine cap,
a large white coat resting on her shoulders (equipped with an alcohol bottle in one of the pockets, and an olive branch in her breast pocket).
A ship's rudder can be seen on her back.

Story

Having been left homeless because of the destruction of her homeworld, she sails from world to world in the nameless space between worlds,
hoping to one day find a suitable enough place and settle down once again.

While the Great Ark was sailing past Gensokyo, something collided with the ship, leading it to sink into the artificially-made world.

Nua only knew one way for the ark to leave Gensokyo: to flood everything so her ship could reach for the broken sky.
Fortunately, the heroines stopped her before she could accomplish this.

Wonderful Waking World - Nua Kouzui's Profile
種族:族長(人間)

能力:洪水を起こす程度の能力

はるか昔、別の世界に地球とかなり似ているけど全然違う惑星があった。
この惑星は地球と同じように人間が住んでいて、同じような歴史を持って、
同じような宗教があって、それでも私達の知っている地球ではなかった。
そして、この惑星で小さな「ヌア」という少女もいた。

ヌアの生活は簡単なものだった。人間より動物と居る方が幸せに感じたから普段動物と日常を過ごした。

でもある日、とある神様がヌアに手を伸ばしてきた。
その神様は世界の創造主だと名乗り、ヌアに人類の悪行を正す任務を与えた。
正さないと全部を破壊すると宣言した。
ヌアはわからなかった。「何故?何故私?どうやって正せばいいの?」と神様に訊いた。
でも神様は質問を無視し、「凄まじい力」という力をヌアに与えて去ってきた。

もちろん小さな少女は全人類の悪行を正せるわけがない。
実際にやってみたけど、誰が神様と会ったと言う子供を信じるのか?

もしかして与えてくれた力が「希望」や「慈悲」みたいなものだと思った。
でもそうではなかった。彼女の世界の悲しい運命に気づいた。
彼女の心は怒りと悲嘆で満たすと、うっかり「凄まじい力」の本当の正体を知ってしまった。

世界を浄化する力だった。何も残らぬように水没させる力だった。

40日の洪水が終わったあと、その世界の宇宙に残っていたのはヌア、
数匹のペット、乗っていた筏、最後に数兆リットルの水だった。

神様が戻ってきた。結果はやっぱり期待したものではなかった。
滅んだ世界からヌアを連れてきた。

それから無名の場所、つまり世界の間に神様が新しい世界を創る場所に住んでいて、バブルからバブルへと航海する。

神様とペットの助けで居住可能な惑星がある居住可能な世界を探す。
探検でいろんな動物の種類を発見した。時にとても信じがたい進化系の動物も。
負傷していたり、または滅びかけている生態系に棲んでいる動物を見つけると自分のペットとして引き受ける。

ヌア自身は結構のんびり屋で、子供っぽくて、酒が好きな性格だけどシリアスな場面では真面目になれる。
ゲーム内の見た目で分かりづらいかもしれないけど意外に大人っぽく成長してきた

ゲームのストーリーの数分前に、大方舟は初めて幻想郷のバブルに航海していた。ヌアは妙な海を航海していることにすぐ気づいた。
突然何か船にぶつかって、そのせいで船体が致命的な損傷を受けた。
仕方なくバブルに沈み、幻想郷の人工の結界は巨大な船の重さに耐えきれず、破れてしまった。
船は有頂天に堕ち、大きな地震(天震?)を起こした。地震は天を大混乱させた。

ヌアは知っていた。方舟をここから出発させる方法はただ一つだけだった。
それはこの世界を水没させることで方舟を破れた空に浮かせること。
ペットに船の損傷を修理する使命を与え、世界を破壊させる洪水を始めた。

でもこの世界の住民が洪水を止めに来ることを予想だにしていなかった…

Species: Patriarch (Human)

Ability: Capable of causing floods

A long, long time ago, in a different world, existed a planet very similar, yet different to Earth.
This planet was also populated by humans, had a similar history, had similar religions, but it wasn't the Earth as we know it.
And on this planet, lived a normal little human girl: Nua.

Her life was a rather simple one. She would spend a lot of time with animals, as she felt closed to them than to other people.

But one day, a god reached for her.
That god claimed to be the one who created the world and asked her to fix humanity's misdeeds, or else they will destroy everything.
Nua was confused. She asked: Why? Why her? How? Ignoring the questions, the god gave her the "Great Power", in her own word, and left.

Of course, a little girl couldn't possibly make up for the whole of humanity.
She tried, but who would believe a little girl claiming to have seen God?

She thought that maybe, the power the god lent to her was the one of "Hope" or "Forgiveness", or something similar.
That wasn't the case. She realized her world was doomed.
Filled with anger and grief, she accidentally found out what the "Great Power" was really all about.

It was the power to cleanse worlds. To flood them until nothing remains.

Once the flood ended after forty days, the only thing left in the whole universe was Nua,
some of her pets, and the raft they were on, floating over trillions of liters of water.

The god came back. The results weren't what they'd expected.
They took Nua out of the dead world.

Since then, she has been living in the nameless place,
the dimension between worlds where the god creates them,
sailing from bubble to bubble.

With the help of the god and her pets, she looks for other habitable worlds with habitable planets.
Through her exploring, she had discovered many different species of animals, some with unimaginable evolutionary lineages.
Whenever she would find an injured one or one living in a dying ecosystem, she would take them in as her pet.

Nua herself is pretty easy-going, childish and likes to get drunk, but she knows when to get serious when the situation calls for it.
Her in-game appearance makes it hard to tell, but she's actually become a rather mature-looking woman.

A few minutes before the game's event, the Great Ark was venturing on Gensokyo's bubble for the first time.
Nua quickly noticed they were sailing on an unusual sea.
Something then suddenly collided with the ship, causing damage to it.
There was nothing that could be done -- they were sinking into the bubble. Gensokyo's artificial barrier
couldn't handle the weight of the titanic boat, so it broke under its pressure.
The ship landed on Bhavaagra, causing a massive earthquake (or would that be a skyquake?) and panic in Heaven.

Nua knew there was only one way to take the ark out of this place: flooding this world entirely, so the ark could reach the broken sky.
She sent her pets fixing the damage, while she started the world-destroying flood.

But what she didn't expect was for an inhabitant of this world to come and try and stop her...

Wonderful Waking World - Reverence U'n-Llisardggy's Profile
種族:別天津神(ことあまつかみ)

能力:世界を創る程度の能力

まだ何もなかった時、今から約138億年前に、神様が既知の宇宙を創った。
その神様は特別な「別天津神」という存在だった。初めて存在した数柱のうちだった。

歴史上いろんなな宗教が創造主にいろんな名前を付けた。
でも彼女の真の名前は一つだけ。レヴァレンス・U'n-リサージ。

人間は全部が自分のために創られたと、少なくとも何か上の存在に何かのために創られたとよく思ってしまう。
実際そうでもない。
レヴァレンスは無限で非ユークリッドな無名の場所に漂ってバブルの中に宇宙を創る。
しかし彼女の干渉はそれに終わる。吹いたバブルの中身は中に入らないとわからない。
中に起こることは自然にその世界の物理法則に定められている。
たまにバブルは自然に群がりながら漂う。その場合、群がった世界は直接繋がる。
例えば外の世界、夢の世界、あと幻想郷は違うバブルにあるが、同じ群がりに属するから「簡単」に世界から世界へと行ける。

数百年前に、自分の力でバブルから出てきた者がいた。
人間に見える不気味な目を持った女だった。
彼女はレヴァレンスの元に行き、彼女だけの世界の創造をお願いした。
レヴァレンスは当然断ったけど、不思議な女に自分で創造したいなら止めはしないと言った。
レヴァレンスはいつもそうだった。何にも干渉せずにただ自分の創造したものを傍観する。

不思議な女は去り、何回も自分の世界の創造を試みていた。
ある日、彼女はやっと成功した。レヴァレンスにとっては意外のことだった。


その出来事の遥か昔に、レヴァレンスは創造した世界によく訪ねていた。
数十億の世界を訪ね、数十億の生命の形を目に入れた。

しかしある日、小さな石を偶然発見した。宇宙に漂っている水と生命が充満している石だった。
地球だった…でも同時にそうでもなかった。
地球にかなり似ていた惑星だった。人間、社会、宗教も全部揃っていたけど私達の知っている地球ではなかった。
その惑星で、レヴァレンスは今まで見たことないものが目に入ってしまった。
憎しみ。戦争。暴力。想像できない程の痛みは一つだけの石から光のように発散していた。

レヴァレンスはどうしても認められなかった。
彼女が創造した生き物がこんなひどい有様であることを認められなかった。
間接に創造したものだとしても認められなかった。

だから初めて創造したものに干渉しようと決めた。
適当に人間に手を伸ばした。それは小さな少女で、彼女に人類の悪行を正す任務を与えた。正さないと全部を破壊すると宣言した。
もちろんこのままでは為す術がないのは知っていたので、必要な力も与えてあげた。

二人が次に会った時、少女と数匹のペットは彼女の水没した宇宙の上に漂った筏に乗っていた。

動物、植物、石、太陽、宇宙に浮いている分子。レヴァレンスにとって全部は同じような存在、つまりは生命。一つずつの原子の気持ちを感じる。聞こえる。
存在する全ては存在するべきものだと思って、ありとあらゆる物質へ愛着を感じる。
でも今は何も聞こえなかった。
この世界の全て、つまりバブルの中のものは全て死んでいた。神様のレヴァレンスにとっては数兆の子供を同時に失うことと同じだった。

そして全部はレヴァレンスの神コンプレックスのせいだった。

自分の行動に対して罪悪感を感じ、人間の少女を世界から連れてきて、生命のないバブルを潰し、
もう二度と自分の創造した世界の中に入らないと誓った。

レヴァレンスは力を与えたヌアを間違いと思いつつ、
罪滅ぼしとして新しい住む場所探しを手伝う。

たまに無名の場所の限りない空虚を眺めながら全部は実はもっと大きなバブルの中にある可能性を考える…

Species: Kotoamatsukami

Ability: Capable of creating worlds


In the beginning, around 13.8 billion years ago, a god created the known universe we live in.
This god was a very special one, a kotoamatsukami, one of the first to ever exist.

Throughout History, different religions gave a lot of different names to the concept of creation.
But her one and only name is Reverence U'n-Llisardggy.

Humans like to think everything was created for them,
or that it was at least actively made by this greater force. It is not so.
Reverence creates universes inside bubbles, floating in a nameless, infinite, non-Euclidean space.
But her involvement stops there -- she doesn't know what's inside the bubble she blows unless she goes inside.
Everything happening in them is just a consequence of whatever laws of physics the places inside follow.
Bubbles will sometimes regroup together into clusters, linking those worlds directly.
For example, the Outside World, the Dream World and Gensokyo are all located in separate
bubbles, but since they are part of the same cluster, one can "easily" go from one to another.


A few hundred years ago, someone managed to leave the bubble they were living in on their own.
This someone was a human-looking lady with creepy eyes.
The lady came to ask Reverence to create a world just for her. She obviously refused, but said she won't stop her from trying herself.
That is how Reverence has always been -- she never gets involved in anything. She is merely a spectator of her own creations.

The lady came and went, and tried to create a world of her own multiple times.
One day, she succeeded, much to Reverence's surprise.


A long, long time before those events, she would spend a lot of time visiting the worlds she created.
During that time, she went through billions of different places and saw billions of different forms of life.

But one day, she stumbled upon a little rock. It was floating in the middle of space, covered with water and life.
It was Earth... but not really.
It was extremely similar to our planet: it had humans, societies and religions, but it was not the planet Earth we know.
On it, she discovered things she had never seen before. Hatred, wars, violence. An unimaginable amount of pain emanated from this single rock.

She couldn't accept this.
She couldn't accept that she had created, even indirectly, such imperfect creatures.

So, for the first time, she decided to interfere with one of her creations.
She reached toward a random human, a young girl, and asked her to solve all of humanity's misdeeds,
for she would destroy everything if she were to fail.
Well aware that this human couldn't just "do it", she gifted to her the power to do so.

The next time the two of them met, the young girl and her pets were alone on a raft, floating over the girl's submerged universe.

Animals, plants, rocks, suns, stray molecules floating in space. To Reverence, they're all the same: life.
She can feel and hear the feelings of every atom.
She considers everything that exists to deserve that existence, and holds affection for every single piece of matter that is.
But she couldn't hear anything. This whole world, the entirety of the inside of the bubble, was dead.
For the god, it was like losing trillions upon trillions of children.

And it was all because of Reverence's god complex.

Ashamed of her actions, she took the human girl with her, popped the lifeless bubble,
and promised that she would never go inside another one of her creations ever again.

Considering Nua as her "mistake", she tries to make up by helping her find a new home.

Sometimes, she stares at the infinite nothingness of the nameless place, and wonders if all of this is somehow contained in another, bigger bubble...
