Muse (ミューズ Myuuzu) is known as the fusion of science and magic, the Clan leader who dreams of merging magic with modern science. She's a master of alchemy, so she can manipulate any type of matter into whatever form, shape, or composition she wishes. A master puppeteer, she uses her puppets as weapons and is extremely proficient with them. She also has complete mastery over the art of throwing crosses (not knifes).
Muse first appeared in Kioh Gyoku, where she appeared as an unlockable playable character and the final boss of that game. About 7 years later when Banshiryuu had C74 version release, she appeared as the 6th Extra Stage boss as part of a boss rush.
Muse was a character who fought in flesh without a machine, something strange for a Seihou Project character. Muse is long-lived, but her age is unknown, but perhaps because her appearance is somewhat child-like, she's treated as a child by VIVIT and a few other characters. Also, she can manifest or hide her wings on a whim. She is usually silent, but when she loses her temper, she starts talking rapidly.
Muse isn't human since she's stated a numerous times that she'll not lose to a human, but her true species is a real mystery. Due to her characteristics of using 'dark' magic with crosses, having red eyes in Banshiryuu and that she used the word 'twilight' towards Erich, she may be a vampire. Logically however, vampires cannot live under sunlight, and numerous times she could be shown under sunlight in outer space. The official log on "Shunsatsu sare do?" by Ponchi states at the start "Whether she is a god or a devil."
Her name is Muse (ミューズ). The name could mean one of the nine Ancient Greek deities of the arts. It could also mean "a source of inspiration".
In Kioh Gyoku and Banshiryuu's official art, she has gray hair curled at the sides of her face and gray eyes. She wears a blue shirt and skirt with a black ribbon attached with a red jewel. She also wears a long black cape and carries what appears to be something like a wooden doll and a black cross. In Banshiryuu, she doesn't have her black cross and doll and is seen with a spear with a cross at the top. In Kioh Gyoku, she doesn't wear a cape.

- Erich & VIVIT
There seems to be something between Muse and Erich, looking at his matters related to VIVIT with hostility. For the conversations in Kioh Gyoku, Muse responds with composure to other characters, but for some reason, Muse bears a sense of hatred against VIVIT. Also, since Muse doesn't think of battles against either Erich or VIVIT lightly, there's probably some relation between the them.
- In comparison, the color palette of her and Sakuya Izayoi are rather similar: Grey hair with longer sideburns, and a blue dress.
- Muse is one of the few characters in the Seihou Project who doesn't need a Spaceship to attack in battle. The others are VIVIT, VIVIT-r, Hirano Sakurasaki, Yuitia and Icarus.
