Book of Star Mythology/Characters

From Touhou Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Most of the characters in Book of Star Mythology are original and non-existent in the Touhou Project. The following three are, however, officially part of the Touhou Project and are playable characters in Book of Star Mythology, each with two different shot types. With exceptions, the rest below are the originals.

Reimu Hakurei
乙女座の巫女
Shrine Maiden of Virgo

Reimu Hakurei
Playable Character

種族:人間

  能力:主に空を飛ぶ程度の能力

  毎度お馴染みの巫女さん。博麗神社の巫女さん。

  七夕や星座にはさして興味は無いが、雨が降ってじめじめするのと、
  商売敵の守矢神社がいい思いをするのは許さない。
  と言う訳で、今回こそは本気で守矢を叩きのめす事にした。
  宗教ブームが収まったと思ったら、宗教戦国時代の開幕である。
  (彼女にとっての本気など、半日もすれば忘れている程度のものだが)

Species: Human
Ability: Flying in the sky

The now familiar shrine maiden of the Hakurei Shrine.

Although she had no interest in stars or constellations, or the damp rain,
she won't let her business rivals, the Moriya Shrine, do as they please.
As such, she's gotten serious about flooring the Moriyas this time.
Just as the religion fad was thought to subside, a religious civil war broke out.
(Although in her case, 'getting serious' means she'll just forget about it in half a day.)


Marisa Kirisame
射手座の魔法使い
Magician of Sagittarius

Marisa Kirisame
Playable Character

種族:人間

  能力:魔法を使う程度の能力

  幻想郷に住む、普通な魔法使い。蒐集癖を持つ。

  雨が降ってじめじめするのと、守矢神社が商売繁盛するのはどうでも
  良いが、星の魔法を研究する彼女は、季節外れの七夕に興味津々。
  霊夢が守矢神社で大暴れしている隙に人知れず山へ登り、輝く夏の大
  三角を、より天に近い所から観測する事にした。
  彼女が派手なのは弾幕勝負の時のみ。平時は地味なフィールドワーク
  を重ねる勉強家だ。

Species: Human
Ability: Using magic

An ordinary magician living in Gensokyo. She also has a mania for collecting things.

She didn't care about the damp rain or the Moriya Shrine's thriving business,
but her research into star magic meant she had a great interest in the out-of-season Tanabata.
While Reimu was rampaging at the Moriya Shrine, she secretly climbed the Youkai Mountain
to observe the shining Summer Triangle from a location closer to heaven.
She's only flashy when it comes to danmaku battles. During times of peace, she's a plain and dedicated field worker.


Sanae Kochiya
蛇遣い座の巫女
Shrine Maiden of Ophiuchus

Sanae Kochiya
Playable Character

種族:人間

  能力:奇跡を起こす程度の能力

  妖怪の山にある守矢神社に住む巫女さん。妖怪退治も慣れた。

  八坂神奈子&洩矢諏訪子の作戦を受け、趣味で育てていたアサガオを
  人里でのんびり繁殖させていたところ、そこに民衆の欲のパワーが宿
  って、織姫と彦星を分かつ天の川の橋が開通してしまった。
  幻想郷が徐々に近代化して行く影響で、人々はより多くの物事を知り、
  結果としてより多くの欲を抱くようになっていた。
  これはまずいと直感した早苗は、指示を待たずに自ら事態収拾に動く
  決断をした。

Species: Human
Ability: Causing miracles

The shrine maiden living in the Moriya Shrine on the Youkai Mountain. She's used to youkai hunting, too.

As part of Kanako Yasaka and Suwako Moriya's strategy, she took the morning glories she had raised as a hobby
and leisurely propagated them in the Human Village. It was then that the power of the villagers' desires
came to dwell within the flowers, inadvertently opening the Bridge of Heaven dividing Orihime and Hikoboshi.
Under the influence of Gensokyo's gradual modernization, the people came to know many more things,
and embraced many more desires as a result.
Sanae's hunch told her that this was bad, so she decided to head out and resolve the situation
without waiting for instructions.

九曜天照 ~ Sunlight Reburst

Ichiyou Mochizuki (望月 一曜 Mochizuki Ichiyou) is the stage 4 boss.

Concept[edit]

Ichiyou is based on the ninjas of feudal Japan's Mochizuki clan, particularly the kunoichi, Chiyome Mochizuki. Chiyome Mochizuki led a network of female ninjas in service of Takeda Shingen, mainly recruited from female entertainers, prostitutes and travelling or "walking" shrine maidens.

Name

Her surname Mochizuki (望月) means "awaited moon". It is one of several terms used for both the night of a full moon and the full moon itself, and is still used as a surname today.

Her given name Ichiyou comprises kanji for "one" () and "luminary" () in reference to the Mochizuki clan's "nine luminaries" crest (九曜紋). The design used by this and other similar crests was adopted by Japan from the Navagraha of Hindu cosmology, which include the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and the ascending and descending lunar nodes. "Ichiyou" is also phonetically similar to "Chiyo," another given name ascribed to Chiyome Mochizuki.

Fuma Mishandra (フーマ・ミシャンドラ) is the stage 6 boss and extra stage midboss.

Concept[edit]

Name

Her surname name, "Fuma", is based on the ninja Fuma Clan in Sengoku period Japan who serves the Hojo Clan of Odawara.

Her "given" name, "Mishandra", is the name of the Key of Solomon's alleged 73rd demon, who secretly rules over all the others and it is something completely made-up by 2chan. Fuma knew that it was made-up but picked the name for herself anyway, since it was fitting.

She herself is based on, on the other hand, the Lesser Key of Solomon or Lemegeton, the anonymous grimoire (or spell book) on demonology, which is the origin of King Solomon's 72 Demons.

Sengo Sanada (真田 千子 Sanada Sengo), also identified by her title Treasured Sword 'Sanadamaru' (宝刀 真田丸 Houken Sanadamaru) is the extra stage boss.

Concept[edit]

Name

She is based on the famed samurai warrior in Sengoku period Japan, Yukimura Sanada, who was especially known as the leading general on the defending side of the Siege of Osaka, and the tale of Sanada Ten Braves. Her surname "Sanada" comes from Yukimura Sanada.

She herself is Yukimura's blade, which is believed to be made by and named after the famous swordsmith Sengo Muramasa. Her given name "Sengo" comes from this.
