"This is Seiran.
I've made contact with a belligerent earthling.
Now proceeding with purification."
Seiran (Legacy of Lunatic Kingdom Stage 1)

Seiran (清蘭 Seiran) is a moon rabbit who appears as the stage 1 boss in Legacy of Lunatic Kingdom and a playable character in Unfinished Dream of All Living Ghost.

General Information

Personality

It seems that it's hard for her to hold a regular conversation, even with her Moon Rabbit comrades, implying that she's either shy or doesn't get much respect from her fellow moon rabbits. She was making mochi for them despite being on break [2] , which confirms the latter.

Abilities

Firing bullets from other dimensions

Not much is known about the specifics of the abilities, other than to fire bullets from other dimensions. From what she can do, it implies that there's some form of teleportation going on.

Occupation

Seiran was a member of the "Eagle Ravi" Earth Recon Unit sent to "purify" the Earth and is part of the Lunarian Military Infiltrators. She's in charge of the Infiltration operations, one of the most dangerous jobs. Seiran doesn't get much respect, being treated as cannon fodder [2]. No reinforcements come to her aid and would've been slain if she blurted out the location of her base. [3] She doesn't get paid much despite the risks. After the events of Legacy of Lunatic Kingdom she abandons the Moon and came to Gensokyo, now being a Dango salesgirl.

Possessions

Seiran possesses a hammer-shaped pounding mallet, which she uses to pound mochi as well as fire danmaku. It's unknown if she could also use it as a melee weapon. She also possesses a Moon Jewel capable of removing impurities such as dirt and bacteria. It is implied that this is a standard issue item for Moon Rabbits.

Character Design

Name

Seiran (清蘭) is spelled with the characters for sei () "clear, pure, clean", and ran () "orchid" a plant of the orchid family, bearing unusually-shaped flowers of beautiful colours; it could also means "elegant, graceful". Seiran is also the name for a Japanese attack floatplane used during World War 2, the Aichi M6A1. However, this name connection has been stated to be irrelevant by ZUN in Strange Creators of Outer World.

Design

Seiran has dark blue hair, tied in two bushy ponytails, with ears similar to Reisen Udongein Inaba's on the top of her head and an accessory in one of them, she has red eyes, a common trait in Moon Rabbits. Her dress is periwinkle with frills and an alternating star and crescent moon pattern across the bottom. The bloomers under her skirt seem to be made of see-through fabric. She also carries a purple stained wooden mallet (presumably used for making Mochi). Although it's not visible in her portraits, she also has a tail,[4] which is visible in her Unfinished Dream of All Living Ghost player sprites, where it is pink colored.

Appearances

After meeting the protagonists, she decides to fight against them as her mission to purify the Earth, but when she is defeated she complains about being in the ground troops and lets the player continue to their base.

Because of the opening of the marketplace, ownership of the ancient land was lost. This has caused greedy animal spirits to attempt to claim ownership of the land. Seiran decides to carry with herself a Moon Jewel to create a paradise on earth for the moon rabbits.

Due to the tumoult in the surface, she faces other characters like Aunn Komano or Marisa Kirisame in order to hide the jewel from everybody. However, she loses it while trying to hide it from Nazrin and her rods, so she resorts to Tsukasa Kudamaki to search for it. Before Tsukasa could end her explanation, Seiran goes to the Forest of Magic to get the one from Enoko Mitsugashira. Nevertheless, after closed inspection, she sees it’s not the same, falls in Zanmu Nippaku’s trap and gets teleported to Hell with Saki Kurokoma.

After defeating Saki, she talks with Tsukasa about how she finally found her jewel in the depths of the Genbu Ravine and which powers it has.

Literature

Alternative Facts in Eastern Utopia

Aya Shameimaru reports the competition between Seiran and Ringo of who sells more dango in the Human Village. Aya claims Ringo is winning but that she supports Seiran, although she explains that she does it because she always wants to support the weak part.

Relationships

Ringo

Along with Ringo both are members of the "Eagle Ravi" Earth Recon Unit sent to "purify" the Earth. After the events of Legacy of Lunatic Kingdom they both deserted the moon and became business rivals as Dango salesgirls.

Reisen Udongein Inaba

She seem to have known Reisen before she fled to Gensokyo as both were part of the Lunarian Military.

She's been doing a lot of investigation, but still hasn't received an OK from the People of the Moon.
She's getting terribly sick of all this.
