"The power seeping from these ruins is definitely not magic. This could be what I've been looking for..."
Rikako Asakura (Phantasmagoria of Dim.Dream)

Rikako Asakura (朝倉 理香子 Asakura Rikako) is among the few people in Gensokyo who values science more than magic, though she can use both. Because of this, she's regarded as a heretic by Reimu Hakurei. Believing the ruins in Phantasmagoria of Dim.Dream were made by science, she ends up in the big battle to enter the Probability Space Hypervessel.

Character Design


Her full name is Rikako Asakura (朝倉 理香子). "Rika" (理香) means Science in Japanese, and "ko" () is common at the end of female Japanese names. The fact that "Rika" means Science links to the fact that Rikako is a scientist. The surname "Asakura" (朝倉) is a common Japanese surname.


Rikako appears to wear a white lab coat with a yellow ribbon at the collar, with a white ribbon in her hair and small round glasses. Her hair and eyes appear purple. Her alternate outfit is the same, except her lab coat and ribbon is a peach colour. Her hair and eyes also appear red.

In Phantasmagoria of Dim.Dream, if Rikako successfully defeats Yumemi Okazaki, her wish of having knowledge of the outside world's science comes true; she eventually becomes one of the most famous scientists in Gensokyo.

There aren't a lot of people in this world that believe in science. Magic rules supreme.
Rikako is one of those rare believers in science in this world. She herself believes that there must be some power beyond magic.
However, she is also a magic user, and a fairly powerful one at that.
Setting aside science for a moment, when she gets serious with her magic power, nothing can stop her, but she doesn't really like magic so this doesn't happen often.

She believes that these ruins were created by science, but ...
