Satono Nishida (爾子田 里乃 Nishida Satono) is a subordinate of Okina Matara, along with her partner Mai Teireida.

General Information[edit]

Satono appeared as the Stage 5 Midboss, Stage 5 Boss and Extra Stage Midboss in Hidden Star in Four Seasons.


She has little memory of her time as a human, but has retained her personality. She is discreet, but tends to be overconfident. Still, she acts for Okina's sake alone, seemingly not having the free will to question otherwise.


Drawing out people's mental energy by dancing behind them

Entrusted to Satono, it is not an ability of hers, but of her master, Okina. She draws out the latent ability in all things by dancing behind them, in this case mental energy.

Background Information[edit]



Similarly to Mai's design, she has light ginger hair, cut short with two long side locks, and purple eyes. She wears a Kazaori-eboshi, a smaller type of eboshi that has been folded. She wears a dotted magenta dress with short sleeves. Her sleeves have a black cuff and yellow lace. Her dress has a black high neck collar, connected to a white bertha collar tipped with yellow lace. She wears a rectangle white half apron fastened around her waist with the same yellow lace. There's a row of red buttons and bows across her bertha collar and her apron. She has black kneesocks and magenta shoes with short heels. She is shown to be holding a stalk of Myoga Ginger[1] with her left hand. Mai's as well as Satono's design and pose is presumably based off the clothing and pose of the two servants of Matara-jin as seen in this woodblock print. Her color scheme directly contrasts with that of Mai.

Emerging alongside their master, Okina, she orders her subordinates to find others worthy of serving her. To do so, they plant doors on the backs of others and empower them, to bring out their best and test them. What they don't know, however, is that they aren't searching for allies, like Okina told them, but for their own replacements.


Okina Matara

Okina is Mai and Satono's master. They are vessels of her power, acting as extensions of her and unflinchingly obeying her orders. They are becoming less human due to Okina's influence. They have little memory of their past, yet maintain their personality. Whether because they're no longer useful or she pities them, Okina seeks to replace them, which she has periodically. However, after failing to find successors, Okina says she is fine with retaining them. Satono and Mai do not know they are even searching for their own replacements.

Mai Teireida

Mai is a fellow subordinate under Okina.
