  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 (permission to publish received)

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

 Youki Konpaku is like a stubborn old man.
 He is Youmu's old man, and moreover her shishou.

 He is not a good-natured old man, possessing dignity and arms that are difficult to get near,
 and was a guard who was hired and replied upon by the Saigyouji family.
 Nonetheless, even for Yuyuko, there was the sense that it was a little difficult to rely on him.

 Also, even while saying that he was Youmu's shishou, it was said that his style was comprised of stolen moves,
 He did not teach anything from his mouth, and anything heard from him is like a thundering voice.

 As Youmu has taken over the role of being the guard, as a guard she was greatly reliable,
 that it became like an inner garden, but the Saigyouji family's mood and atmosphere has greatly changed.

 In the first place, the present Saigyouji family has come to no longer need old-type guards,
 perhaps.

 It is this kind of impression.
