  魂魄 妖忌について

 ZUN氏に魂魄 妖忌というキャラについて質問した所、以下の回答をいただきました。
 お忙しいところ、本当に有難うございました。  以下、ZUN氏による回答(転載許可済み)

 ------------------------------------------------------------------------

 魂魄妖忌(こんぱくようき)は、頑固爺みたいな人(?)です。
 妖夢の爺、且つ剣の師匠です。

 好々爺ではなく、近寄りがたい威厳と腕を持ち、西行寺家お抱えの
 頼りになる護衛でした。
 ただ幽々子も、頼りにはなるがちょっと苦手、という感じだったようです。

 また、妖夢の師匠といっても、技は盗む物といったスタイルで、
 何にも口では教えず、何か聞くと一喝されるだけでした。

 護衛が妖夢に代替わりしてから、護衛は物凄く頼りなくなり庭番程度に
 なってしまったが、西行寺家の雰囲気は大きく変わりました。

 そもそも、今の西行寺家には古いタイプの護衛は要らなくなっていたのかも
 しれません。

 そんな感じで。

  Concerning Youki Konpaku

 Upon questioning ZUN concerning Youki Konpaku, I received the following reply.
 As he was busy, I am really thankful. Below is ZUN's reply (with permission to publish)

 ------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Youki Konpaku is kinda like a stubborn (?) old man.
 He's Youmu's old man, but also her sword master.

 He isn't a sweet old man, but rather is someone difficult to approach and carries an air of dignity,
 being the ever-reliable retainer serving as the guard of the Saigyouji household.
 However, in Yuyuko's case she seemed to have had difficulty relying on Youki.

 Though he was Youmu's master, his methods were of stealing whatever technique he could learn,
 and he did not teach anything from his mouth. If he did say anything his voice exploded like thunder.

 Now that Youmu has taken over role of guard, she has become a very reliable to the point of becoming
 protector of the inner garden, but the atmosphere of the Saigyouji household has changed greatly.

 After all, the Saigyouji household seems to no longer need an old-fashioned guard anymore.

 It's that kind of feeling.
