Riverbed Soul Saver/Characters

From Touhou Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Most of the characters in Riverbed Soul Saver are original and non-existent in the Touhou Project. The following six are, however, officially part of the Touhou Project and are playable characters in Riverbed Soul Saver, each with two different shot types. The midboss and boss of stage 1 are also official characters. All other characters are the originals.

神出鬼没の結界チーム (Wily and Elusive Barrier Team)[edit]

Reimu Hakurei
天照らす巫女
Shrine Maiden of the Shining Sky [1]

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。

今年は以前の異変を受けて、一つの武器が駄目になっても戦えるよう、 色々と技を磨いていたのだが、あまりの酷寒でコタツに引き籠って そのまま忘れていた。今回の出撃も、紫に言われて渋々である。 だが習得しかけていた色々な新技の幾つかは、紫のさりげないサポートに よって完成するだろう。 彼女がやる気を出して行動すると大体ろくな事にならないので、結果と してはこの方が正解なのである。

Species: Human

Abilities: Mainly capable of flying in the sky

The now-familiar shrine maiden of the Hakurei Shrine.

In the wake of this year's previous incident, she's been honing her skills in various ways, so that she can still fight even if a given weapon is rendered useless. Thanks to the excessive cold, though, she's been curled up in the kotatsu and has forgotten about all that.
Her departure this time around is on Yukari's orders, and she's about as reluctant as you'd expect. Thanks to Yukari's lackadaisacal support, however, some of her various half-learned skills will now be seen to fruition.
When she actually gets serious about her work, it almost never leads to anything good, so in the end this is really the better option.


Yukari Yakumo
異界の航海士
Navigator of Other Planes

Yukari Yakumo
Support character

種族:妖怪

能力:境界を操る程度の能力

普段は何処に居るのかよく判らない神出鬼没の妖怪。

式に働かせて本人は眠ってばかり…と思われているが、近年の大規模な 異変に殆ど介入を行わなかったのは、ひとえに今回存在を明らかにした 狭間の異界の工事に集中していたが為である。 (ただし異界内の全てが把握出来ているわけでもない) よく考えても見て欲しい。何故封印から目覚めたばかりだったあの人や この人が、何の戸惑いも無くスペルカードを使用していたのか。 実はあれらの異変の時点で、既に幻想郷に入ろうとする者に対し自動的に スペルカードルールを刷り込むように結界の機能を増幅していたのである。 チートってレベルじゃねーぞ!

Species: Youkai

Ability: Capable of manipulating boundaries

A wily and elusive youkai whose whereabouts are usually unclear.

She lets her shikigami do everything and just spends her time sleeping... or so it's thought. The real reason that she hasn't intervened much in the recent large-scale incidents, however, is that she's been entirely focused on constructing the newly-revealed Otherworld within the Great Barrier. (It's not like she can have a total grasp of the Otherworld's layout, though.)
Think about it for a minute. Why did this or that newcomer to Gensokyo, only just awakened from some ancient seal, know how to use Spell Cards without any confusion? The truth is, when those incidents occurred, she had amplified the Barrier's functions in order to automatically imprint the Spell Card Rules on anybody entering Gensokyo.
But it's not like she's overpowered or anything!



和洋折衷の魔法チーム (Cross-Cultural Magic Team)[edit]

Marisa Kirisame
星海の魔法使い
Magician of the Starry Seas

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。

ただの人間である彼女を紫が戦場に送り出して居るのは、何だかんだで 彼女の実力が認められているからだ。 これまでの幾多の異変の黒幕との戦い、ルール無視の本気でやり合えば 瞬殺されていたに違いないが、スペルカードルールの加護の下であれば 彼女はなかなか勝率が高い。 口に出す事は無いが、紫は彼女を、スペルカードルールの申し子として それなりに特別視している。それにただの人間だから、万一当たり所が 悪くて死んでもさほど困らないしね。

Species: Human

Abilities: Capable of using magic

An ordinary magician living in Gensokyo. Fond of collecting things.

One might wonder why Yukari would send an ordinary human like her out into the battlefield, but the reason is that Yukari acknowledges her true power. Over the course of many past incidents and battles with various masterminds, it's certainly true that she'd have been killed in seconds during a regular, rule-less duel. But with the Spell Card Rules in place as a safeguard, her success ratio is considerably high.
It's not something she would say out loud, but Yukari regards her in particular as a gifted individual when it comes to the Spell Card Rules. Also, she's just a human anyway, so on the off chance something goes wrong and she dies, it wouldn't be a huge problem.


Patchouli Knowledge
雨に弱い大図書館
The Great Library who's Sensitive to Rain

Patchouli Knowledge
Support character

種族:魔法使い

能力:魔法(属性)を使う程度の能力

紅魔館に住んでいる魔法使い。酷寒ゆえに持病の喘息が危ない。

今回の大規模防衛戦は初めての試みゆえ、紫は友人の西行寺幽々子を始め 何人かの信頼出来る人物に対し協力を仰ぐべく、空間を操るスキマの術で 有無を言わさず自邸に召喚したのである。 引き篭もりのパチュリーに声がかかったのは、かつての間欠泉異変の際に いち早く紫に働きかけ、早期の異変解決及び被害の予防に貢献した実績が あっての事だ。 面倒臭い事になった。あの時気まぐれに妙な事をしなければ良かったと 思ったが、ここからでは咲夜に助けを求める事も出来ず、しぶしぶ協力する 事にした。

Species: Magician

Abilities: Capable of using (elemental) magic

A magician living in the Scarlet Devil Mansion. The freezing cold poses a danger to her chronic asthma.

As this large-scale defense operation of Yukari's is a test run, she called for the cooperation of many reliable people, starting with her good friend Yuyuko Saigyouji. Thus, Patchouli was suddenly summoned to Yukari's home via her space-manipulating gap magic.
The reason she reached out to a recluse like Patchouli is that during the Geyser Incident some time ago, Patchouli very quickly joined forces with Yukari, leading them to quickly solve the incident and even get damage control underway.
What a pain, Patchouli thought. If I hadn't done all those things on some whim back then, I wouldn't be in this mess. Despite her displeasure, though, it was impossible to call for Sakuya's help, and she reluctantly offered her cooperation.


温故知新の豪族チーム ("Learn New Truths from Old" Head Family Team)[edit]

Mononobe no Futo
雨降らしの尸解仙
Shikaisen of Drizzling Rain

Mononobe no Futo
Playable character

種族:人間?(尸解仙を自称する道士)

能力:風水を操る程度の能力

伝説の聖徳太子の従者。尸解したせいでちょっとアホになった。 先日の別の異変では、弓やら皿やらの自分の武器も動き出すに決まって おろうと目を輝かせ、異変解決の翌週まで物言わぬ武器を凝視していた。 (神子は分かっていたが、面白いので黙っていた) 住人も曲者揃いなら、新たにやって来る連中も曲者ばかりの幻想郷。 良くも悪くも純粋でお人よしな彼女は、見事異変解決人としてデビュー を飾れるのだろうか。

Species: Human? (Taoist professing to be a shikaisen)

Abilities: Capable of manipulating feng shui

An attendant of the legendary Prince Shoutoku. Thanks to the resurrection process, she's become a bit of a moron.

During another incident several days before, she got a sparkle in her eye as she was convinced that her own bows and plates would come alive too, and stared at the unmoving weapons for a whole week even after the incident was resolved. (Miko was aware of this, but since it seemed interesting she didn't bring it up.)
As the majority of Gensokyo's residents are weirdos and ne'er-do-wells, it's only fitting that its new arrivals are ne'er-do-wells too. For better or for worse, Futo is pure and good-natured; will she be able to make her triumphant debut as an incident-solver?


Toyosatomimi no Miko
天道道士
Tendou Taoist

Toyosatomimi no Miko
Support character

種族:聖人

能力:十人の話を同時に聞くことが出来る程度の能力

伝説の聖徳太子その人。光り輝く聖者を装っているがなかなか腹黒い。
そしてたまにアホ。

無欲の仙人を装いつつ弟子を集め、密かに幻想郷の為政者となる事を諦めて いなかった彼女は、今回の件に乗じて、幻想郷のトップシークレットで ある結界の謎を解き明かすべく、部下と共に暗躍する。 紫以外が意図して異界に侵入するには「鍵」が必要である筈だが、先兵として 突入した布都が用いたのは、神子が即席で用意した「希望の鍵」なる コピー品である。オリジナル同様暖房機能も備えている。 彼女は何だかんだで全知全能の支配者と呼ぶに相応しい天才だ。何で幻想 入りしたのか分からないくらいに。

Species: Saint

Abilities: Capable of listening to ten people's speech at the same time

The legendary Prince Shoutoku herself. She puts on the airs of a glorious, shining saint, but is actually very devious.
Also, kind of a moron sometimes.

While playing the part of a desire-less hermit, she has been gathering pupils and secretly still plans to become the administrator of Gensokyo. Taking advantage of the current goings-on, she's acting in secret with her subordinates in order to solve the top-secret mysteries of Gensokyo's barrier.
Yukari's "keys" are required for anyone other than her to deliberately enter the Otherworld, but the one that Futo used when rushing in ahead of time was the copied "Key of Hope" that Miko made on the fly. It has a heating function, just like the originals. She's a prodigal genius of sorts, worthy of being called an omnipotent overlord. To the point where she's not really sure why she entered the realm of fantasy to begin with.

Ability to lead a person to their demise

Mumumu Mikaboshi (甕星 無々夢 Mikaboshi Mumumu) is the Extra Stage midboss. She was previously the Stage 4 boss of The Last Comer, developed by the same team as Riverbed Soul Saver.

Concept[edit]

Mumumu Mikaboshi is based on Ame no Kagaseo, a Shinto god of evil, as well as the fallen angel Lucifer.

Name

Despite sounding as three repeating syllables, Mumumu is written with distinct kanji (無々夢). The first part of her name (無) means “nothingness”, while the third (夢) means “dream”. The “々” is a punctuation mark indicating to repeat the previous kanji, emphasizing the “nothingness” aspect. Thus, her given name can be taken as “dreaming of oblivion”, relating to her penchant for orchestrating demise. Her surname Mikaboshi (甕星) is from “Amatsu-Mikaboshi”, or “August Star of Heaven”, another name for Ame no Kagaseo.

Notes[edit]

  1. 天照らす amaterasu, meaning "shining sky" or "light of heaven" is also the name of the Shinto sun goddess. Fitting for the title of a shrine maiden.
  2. Sanuki udon is a kind of Japanese noodles. Also, Sugawara no Michizane worked in Sanuki Province for 4 years, and his official residence is the Takinomiya Tenmanguu Shrine.
  3. Possibly a reference to Chihiro ni saku hana ("A Flower Blooming Under a Thousand Fathoms"), a 2008 manga about Emperor Antoku.
  4. A pun on "yama" (邪馬) and "jama" (邪魔, 'obstruction').
  5. "Sun priestess", as it's written here (日巫女), can be pronounced "Himiko".
  6. "Kidou" (鬼道, 'the ways of demons') is the term used to refer to Queen Himiko's shamanistic powers in most sources.
