Reimu Hakurei
乐园的巫女
Shrine Maiden of Paradise

Reimu Hakurei
Playable Character

种族:人类
能力:自由飞行程度的能力

接受人里的人们的委托,退治妖怪和解决异变的博丽神社的巫女。

自身对热闹的环境并不感兴趣。比起去人里观赏迎接流星雨的夏夜祭典,更愿意坐在神社悠闲地喝茶。

然而这次,靠着巫女的直觉,她感觉落下的流星雨中蕴含着非同寻常的力量,要是有什么妖怪在作乱就麻烦了呢。她的想法与针妙丸不谋而合,于是二人一起出发了。
Species: Human
Ability: Free flight

The Hakurei shrine maiden tasked by the people of the Human Village to exterminate youkai and resolve incidents.

She doesn't care much for a lively atmosphere. Rather than heading to the Human Village to watch the meteor shower during the Summer Night Festival, she prefers relaxing in the shrine while sipping tea.

But this time, relying on her shrine maiden's intuition, she sensed that the meteor shower contained an unnatural power, and thought that it would be troublesome if some youkai was indeed messing around. Her thoughts happened to coincide with Shinmyoumaru's, so they set out to investigate together.


Shinmyoumaru Sukuna
小人的公主
Inchling Princess

Shinmyoumaru Sukuna
Support Character (Reimu)

种族:小人
能力:使用万宝槌程度的能力

一寸法师的末裔。辉针城异变之后便一直住在灵梦家中。

万宝槌的魔力已经完全回收,并且不打算再次使用而将它封印了起来。

但是,针妙丸却感受到了不同寻常的魔力风暴。或许有什么人在密谋着什么。她的想法和灵梦一致,于是为了回报灵梦的人情,这次打算帮助灵梦一起去解决异变。
Species: Inchling
Ability: Capable of using the Miracle Mallet

The descendant of Issun-boshi. She has been staying with Reimu ever since the events of Double Dealing Character.

She had succeeded in withdrawing the Miracle Mallet's power and sealed it away as she had no intention of using it again.

However, she sensed an abnormal storm of magic. Perhaps someone was secretly plotting something. Both she and Reimu felt the same way, so to repay Reimu's hospitality, Shinmyoumaru decided to help Reimu resolve the incident.


Marisa Kirisame
普通的魔法使
Ordinary Magician

Marisa Kirisame
Playable Character

种族:人类
能力:使用魔法程度的能力

住在幻想乡的普通魔法使,喜欢收集东西。

住在位于魔法之森的雾雨魔法店,接受退治妖怪的委托。但是本人似乎长期不在店内。

在流星雨到来之前,早早的就察觉到了这股强大的魔力、她认为这次绝佳的机会绝对不能错过,她要用掉落下来的流星碎片强化自己的魔法。
Species: Human
Ability: Using magic

An ordinary magician living in Gensokyo who likes collecting things.

She lives in her Kirisame Magic Shop within the Forest of Magic, and accepts youkai extermination jobs. However, she's rarely present in the shop.

Even before the meteor shower occurred, she had already sensed their waves of powerful magic. She thought that this was an opportunity not to be missed, and decided to use the fallen meteor fragments to enhance her own magic.


Sanae Kochiya
山上的现人神
Living God on the Mountaintop

Sanae Kochiya
Playable Character

种族:人类
能力:引发奇迹程度的能力

住在守矢神社里的巫女,平时的活动是到处收集信仰。

进入幻想乡已经快有两年了,已经习惯了退治妖怪,于是作为现人神的实力也慢慢地变强了。

虽然自身可以引发奇迹,但是这次的流星雨确实是由强大的人所引发的大奇迹呢。如果得到这份力量的话,信仰也会增加吧。这样想的她于是就出发了。
Species: Human
Ability: Creating miracles

Shrine maiden living in the Moriya Shrine, whose usual activities involve collecting faith from throughout the region.

It's been almost 2 years since she entered Gensokyo, and she's become used to exterminating youkai, thus her power as a living god has also gradually increased.

Although she was able to create miracles herself, this meteor shower was undoubtedly the result of a great miracle created by someone powerful. If she were to acquire this power, then her faith would certainly increase. With these thoughts, she set off.


Koishi Komeiji
紧闭的恋之蔷薇
Tightly-Shut Rose of Love

Koishi Komeiji
Playable Character

种族:觉
能力:操纵无意识程度的能力

古明地 觉的妹妹。总是喜欢在地面上玩耍。

作为读心的妖怪,得知读心会遭到他人的厌恶时便闭上了能够读心的第三
只眼。

和往常一样在地面上的神社玩耍时,偶然间听到了灵梦和针妙丸的对话,对蕴藏在流星中的力量很在意,于是便朝着那股力量所指引的方向进发了。
Species: Satori
Ability: Manipulating the unconscious

The younger sister of Satori Komeiji. Likes to play on the surface.

As a mind-reading youkai, when she learnt that reading minds would only cause others to hate her, she closed her mind-reading third eye.

While playing on the surface around the shrine as usual, she overheard Reimu and Shinmyoumaru's conversation. Taking an interest in the power contained within the shooting stars, she headed off in its direction.

Species: Fairy
Ability: Causing uproars on summer nights

A fairy of the breeze, she always makes a racket as soon as night falls. There isn't any particular reason for this, other than that she enjoys a lively atmosphere, and she's even noisier in a group with other fairies. Usually, she'll quieten down once she's been beaten up.

This time, thanks to the ongoing Summer Night Festival in the Human Village, she was especially noisy, so when the incident-resolver passed by, she was harshly dealt with.

种族:人类
能力:使用弓箭的能力

为了阻止自机们继续前进,而突然出现在面前的人类,桃雨洛薰的妹妹。

因为姐姐继承了祖传的秘术,父母就把家族的弓法教授给了她。
学习弓法时非常用功,很小的时候就能够射中很远的目标,并且靠射猎来养活一家人,不过大多数时候还是由父亲外出打猎。

很喜欢姐姐,与姐姐的关系非常要好。
感觉姐姐一直在保护着自己,独自承担着一切,于是总想为姐姐做点什么。每次当她提出要帮忙的时候,父母和姐姐总是以“你还小,这些事情不用你帮忙”来拒绝她。

这次因为姐姐要启动祈祷秘术,于是自告奋勇的去阻拦前来妨碍的巫女也好,妖怪也好。这次,终于到了她为姐姐做些什么的时候了。
Species: Human
Ability: Using a bow and arrows

The human that suddenly appeared in front of the heroines to stop them from continuing any further. Rakukun Momosame's younger sister.

Since her elder sister inherited their ancestral secret arts, her parents passed their clan's archery techniques on to her. She was extremely diligent while learning to use the bow, and was able to hit targets from very far away since she was very young, so she relied on bow-hunting to feed the family. However, her father was still the one who would go out hunting most of the time.

She likes her elder sister a lot, and the two are very close. She feels that her sister is constantly protecting her, and has to shoulder a significant burden on her own, so she's always thinking of doing something to help her out. However, each time she raised the idea, her parents and sister would object with "you're still young, we don't require your help on these matters".

This time, her sister wanted to invoke their clan's secret prayer arts, so she volunteered to get in the way of anyone who would obstruct them, be it shrine maidens or youkai. The time had finally come for her to help her sister out.

Ability: Manipulating flames

A fairy commonly seen on summer days. She likes using her flames to scare humans visiting the willow grove, but she isn't very powerful on her own, and only has enough to play pranks.

种族:妖怪树
能力:操纵树木成长成熟的能力

独自生活在人迹罕至的柳林的妖怪树,已经活了一千多年了。

东方的国度里,很早很早以前,有一颗很小很小的柳树时,被一位路过的书生从伐木人斧头下救了下来。化而为妖之后,为了报答救命之恩,她隐瞒了自己的身份,嫁入了那位书生家中。

然而幸福的生活并没有持续几年。
有一天早晨,她突然告诉那位书生自己马上就要死去了,请勿挂念。远在千里之外的青柳被砍伐了,而她也当着书生的面消失了。

书生悲痛万分。
书生最终也不知道她的真正身份。

然而这样的她并没有真正的死去,凭借着自己对生的渴求,第二年砍断的柳树又重新发芽,几年之后,终于再次成长成为一棵大柳树。

但很可惜的是,当她再次幻化成妖之时,却已经过了百年之久,足够任何长寿的人类消耗尽他的生命。

青柳再也没有进入人类社会生活,就这样,又过了千年之久,等到当所有的人类与妖怪都忘记了她的存在时,她进入了幻想乡。
Species: Youkai tree
Ability: Manipulating plant growth and maturation

A youkai willow tree living alone in a remote forest, she's lived for over a thousand years.

In an Eastern country, a long time ago, a scholar saved a very young willow tree from a logger's axe. After eventually becoming a youkai, to repay the scholar for saving her life, she concealed her identity and married into his family.

However, their happy life barely lasted a few years. One morning, she suddenly told the scholar that she would die very soon, and urged him not to miss her. Her willow tree, more a thousand miles away, had been cut down, and she disappeared right in front of him.

The scholar was struck with grief. He never learnt of her true identity.

But Seiryuu didn't truly die, because thanks to her desire for life, a new shoot grew from the felled willow tree the next year, and in a few years, it grew and matured into a large willow tree once more.

Sadly, when she finally became a youkai again, more than a hundred years had passed, so long that even the longest-lived humans would have passed away.

Seiryuu never once made contact with human society again, and thus, after another thousand years or so, once all the humans and youkai had long forgotten about her existence, she passed into Gensokyo.

不知在何处被制造的镜子。
镶嵌着各种各样美丽高贵的宝石,使得它变得价值连城。

在有钱人的社会中转手了几百年之后,它被一位富翁收藏在了他的密室当中。
或许是这位富翁太过于有钱了,他有许许多多的宝贝,以至于忽略了这一件无比美丽的镜子。

一年过去了,两年过去了,几百年过去了。
曾经的富翁早就已经死去了,但是他的密室却迟迟没有被人发现。

美丽的镜子已经遍布了灰尘,沾满了蛛网。
曾经被人们捧着爱不释手,现如今却被遗忘在这个无人知晓的角落。
无比痛苦的她,怀着对人类的憎恨最终成为了付丧神。

许多年后,将密室重新打开的,是桃雨家族的姐妹。

被感动的她消除了对人类的憎恨,答应进入人类社会生活,并且用自己的能力帮助桃雨家族。

这次的祈祷秘术需要她的能力,于是她毫不犹豫地答应了。  
Species: Tsukumogami
Ability: Manipulating reflections

A mirror of unknown origin. Many different beautiful and expensive gems are embedded in it, making it worth a fortune.

After being passed from owner to owner within high society for several hundred years, it was eventually hidden away by a wealthy man in his secret vault. Perhaps this rich person had far too much money, for he owned many, many treasures, and thus ended up neglecting this particular mirror and its unmatched beauty.

A year passed. Two years passed. Hundreds of years passed. The wealthy man had long since passed on, but his secret vault continued to lie undiscovered.

The beautiful mirror had become completely covered in dust, and riddled with cobwebs. It was once loved so much that one could not bear to part with it, yet now lay forgotten in the corner of a place whose existence no one was aware of. Her suffering caused her to finally become a tsukumogami harbouring a hatred for humans.

Many years later, the vault was reopened by none other than the Momosame sisters. They gave her a new life. They allowed her to live with them, and hid her true identity from their parents. They treated her as a human, helping her and showering her with care. They viewed her as if she were their sister.

Touched, she relinquished her hatred for humans and agreed to live within the human society, as well as to use her strength to help the Momosame clan.

The secret prayer art this time required her abilities, thus she agreed to help without any hesitation.

种族:人类
能力:祈祷星神降下祝福的能力

从出生起就背负上了全部族人的生命的人类,桃雨家的长女。

几千年以前,在那个蛮荒的年代人类被妖怪捕食是再很平常不过的事情。
鸟类吃昆虫,大鱼吃小鱼,自然严谨有序的进行着这一套法则。

为了自己不被杀死,活着的人们聚集了起来,共同抵御妖怪的威胁。
这样,就形成了远古的村落。

但是,虽然人类团结在了一起,但是力量还是微乎其微。
纵火的妖怪,撕裂一切的妖怪,迅猛扑食的妖怪。

人类,太过于渺小了。
绝望当中,人类想到了信仰神。
于是,在幸存人类的祈祷下,星神降临了。

星神答应帮助人类不再被妖怪捕食。
星神用星光驱散黑暗
星神用星芒消灭妖怪
星神用星力建立结界

至此之后,人类再也不惧怕妖怪了。
但是作为使用神力改变自然的代价,每次召唤星神降临,人类的寿命就会缩短。

这一切,作为星神的祈祷师,桃雨洛薰当然知道。
几千年之后,曾经信仰星神的村落,也几乎不再需要星神的降临了。
因而村人的寿命,也不会受到任何影响。
现如今负责祈祷的,就是桃雨家族。

因为是长女,当她一出生,就决定了祈祷秘术的下一任传授者。
从很小的年纪开始,就必须每天进行刻苦的修炼。这一切,都被妹妹桃雨洛熙看在眼里。

尽管辛苦,但是和父母,妹妹生活在一起是再幸福不过的事情了。
洛薰这样想着。

但是袭来的天灾摧毁了这一切。
当所有人都在睡梦当中时,咆哮着奔涌而来的泥石流瞬间将整个村子摧毁成为一片废墟。
即使没有妖怪的威胁,人类在天灾面前还是微不足道。

救下两姐妹的,是与桃雨姐妹一起生活的付丧神,魅明魔 影
没有任何亲人,所有人也都以为她们被泥石流永远地掩埋了。

这样的她们,进入了幻想乡。
失去亲人的痛苦,让洛薰更加坚强。
这一次,她要用大祈祷术让星神降临,用神之力复活所有死去的村人。

但是这样做,很有可能会失去自己的全部寿命。
对于此,妹妹和影并不知情。
Species: Human
Ability: Summoning the Star God and praying for the Star God's blessings

The human responsible for bearing the lives of all her clan members since her birth, and the eldest daughter of the Momosame household.

Several thousand years ago in the age of savagery, it was not uncommon for humans to wind up as prey for youkai. Just as birds ate bugs, and large fish ate smaller ones, the laws of nature were manifested in a strict and orderly manner.

In order to prevent themselves from being killed, the surviving humans gathered and resisted the threat of the youkai together. Thus, the villages of ancient times were formed.

However, despite the humans' unity, their combined strength was still incomparable to the destructive, barbaric and predatory youkai.

Humans were simply too insignificant. In their despair, they turned to the gods. Thus, in response to the prayers of the surviving humans, the Star God descended.

The Star God agreed to help the humans prevent themselves from being preyed on by the youkai.
The Star God used the light of the stars to disperse the darkness.
The Star God used starbursts to annihilate the youkai.
The Star God used the power of the stars to erect a barrier.

Ever since then, humans no longer feared youkai. But as a price for using divine powers to change the laws of nature, each time the Star God was summoned, humans' lifespans would be shortened.

As the one practising the Star God's rituals, Rakukun Momosame knew all this. After few thousand years, the villages that once worshipped the Star God almost no longer needed to summon her again; likewise, the villagers' lifespans were no longer affected. Today, the Momosame household is responsible for these prayers.

As the eldest daughter, since she was born, it was decided that she would be the inheritor of the secret prayer arts. Starting from a young age, she was required to undergo hard work and training each day. Her younger sister Rakuki saw all this clearly.

Although her life was tough, being able to live with her parents and sister was something for which she could not be more fortunate, Rakukun thought.

But the natural disaster that descended upon them destroyed everything. While everyone was asleep, rocks and mud roared down in large quantities and reduced the entire village into rubble in the blink of an eye. Even with the threat of youkai now absent, humans were still powerless against natural disasters.

The one who saved the two sisters was the tsukumogami who was living with them, Kage Mimeima. With no other relatives, everyone else assumed they too were buried alive under the landslide.

Thus, they entered Gensokyo. The pain of losing her loved ones only made Rakukun more determined. This time, she planned to conduct a great prayer ritual to summon the Star God once again, to use the power of the gods to resurrect the dead villagers.

But in doing this, there was a very real possibility of her losing her entire lifespan. With regards to this, Kage and her sister were wholly unaware.

Shining Shooting Star - Tensei Muriya's Profile
种族:星神
能力:实现一切愿望的能力

当有流星划过之时,人类总喜欢对着其许愿。
就是星神的能力让愿望成真。

然而,每一颗流星划过,都代表着一个生命的逝去。
实现愿望的代价,就是将祈祷师的生命的一部分分给那颗将要消失的流星。
并不是星神吸收了生命,而是将它转化为了实现奇迹的神力。
正是因为如此,星神变得渐渐不再有人信仰。

人们似乎都忘记了几千年之前星神帮助人类的传说。
那个时候,只会降雨的神,丰收的神,又有什么用处呢?
就像在那场洪水海啸等等天灾面前一样。

直到那一场泥石流的袭来, 最后一个信仰星神的村落也消失了。
于是星神也进入了幻想乡。

这一切对于天星来说都无所谓,因为自己并不是信仰的具现化,没有人信仰反而更加轻松。平日里没事做就在幻想乡中到处走走,喝喝酒,聊聊天。

几万年以前,在村落形成之前,或许连天星自己都不会再记得,在当她还是人类的时候的事情。
她研究星术,得到了星星的力量,并最终用它来帮助人类。
然而,即使是如此,这些力量还是太过于渺小了。

无法获得更强大的力量的她,目睹了无数的捕食与被捕食,目睹了许多人类眼睁睁死在面前的惨状。
母亲被群拥而上的妖怪撕碎
父亲为了保护自己逃走,被妖怪杀死。

几万年来人类就一直生活在这样的混沌之中。

天星号召人类团结起来,号召人类跟随她。
她用仅有的星星的力量驱散黑暗,赶走一部分弱小但足以致命的怪物。
渐渐地,人们变得相信她,服从她的安排。

认识到自己力量的局限性之后,天星组织人类用团结的力量围剿,消灭妖怪。主动出击,而不是等待被捕食。
渐渐地,跟随她的人越来越多,人们都信仰她。认为她是神派来的使者。

人类将她当做星神信仰着。
终于,天星获得了神格,成为了现人神。
她将信仰之力转化为神迹。

授予神术,回应祈祷,对讯问给予回答。
舍弃了身体,舍弃了作为人类的一切,最终升格成为了真正的星神。

在那之后,又过了一万年之久。

当自机们遇到通过大祈祷术降临的天星,知道她就是星神之后,赶忙向她许愿。
天星对面前不珍惜自己寿命的人类感到很愤怒。
于是打算让她们认识到生命的宝贵。
Species: Star god
Ability: Fulfilling wishes

Humans enjoy wishing upon shooting stars whenever they streak across the sky. The power of the Star God makes these wishes come true.

However, each shooting star that streaks across the sky also represents its passing. The cost of fulfilling a wish is that part of the the lifespan of the one praying will be distributed to the vanishing shooting star. The Star God isn't absorbing life force, but rather converting it into a divine power that can manifest miracles. Because of all this, the people's faith in the Star God dwindled.

Humans seem to have forgotten the legend of the Star God providing assistance to humans several thousand years ago. Back then, of what use were rain gods and harvest gods, especially in the face of floods, tsunamis and other natural disasters?

One day, a landslide struck, causing the very last village that still remained faithful to the Star God to be wiped out. Thus, the Star God, too, entered Gensokyo.

None of this particularly mattered to Tensei, though, as since she wasn't a manifestation of faith, on the contrary, not having any followers gave her even more freedom to relax. Since she generally has nothing to do on most days, she can be found roaming Gensokyo, drinking sake and chatting.

Tens of thousands of years ago, even before the first villages came into existence, perhaps so long ago that even Tensei herself cannot remember, back when she was human... She studied astrology, gained the power of the stars, and ultimately used it to help humanity. Unfortunately, even so, the power she held then was still far too insignificant.

Unable to attain stronger powers, Tensei watched as the youkai hunted and humans were preyed on; she saw countless humans die before her eyes.
Her mother was shredded to pieces by a horde of youkai.
Her father fled to protect himself, but was killed by the youkai anyway.

For tens of thousands of years, humans lived in such a state of constant chaos.

Tensei called upon the humans to unite, to follow her. She used what little power of the stars that she held to disperse the darkness and to chase away a small group of weaker but still deadly monsters. Gradually, the people began to trust in her and her plans.

After recognising the limitations of her own powers, Tensei organised the humans to unite, surround and annihilate the youkai. To take the initiative in attacking the youkai, rather than wait to be hunted by them as food. Slowly, the ranks of her followers grew, and people began to have faith in her. They believed that she was an emissary sent by the gods.

The humans had faith that she was a Star God. Finally, Tensei attained godhood, and became a living god. She converted her powers gained through faith into that of divine miracles.

She conferred divine arts, responded to prayers and answered questions. She forsook her physical form and her humanity, and ultimately ascended to become a true Star God.

After that, tens of thousands of years passed once more.

When the heroines met Tensei who had descended in response to the prayer ritual, they quickly recited their wishes to her once they realised she was a Star God. Tensei was infuriated at the humans before her not valuing their own lifespans. Thus, she decided to teach them a lesson on the value of life.

Rika used to be a rich girl from an Eastern country, who fell in love with a scholar from another world. Unfortunately, when she confessed her feelings to him, he rejected her because he had fell in love once but that girl had abandoned him. After the scholar returned to his world, Rika trained hard to become a hermit so she will become immortal too. With the support of her family, she became a hermit and reunited with the scholar. She later visited Gensokyo for unknown reasons and helped the Momosame sisters with the ritual to summon Tensei Muriya.

After the Momosame sisters and Tensei are defeated, they reveal to to heroines about Rika's involvement. Suspicious, they go to confront her. Rika reveals she only wanted to help the sisters while she was searching for something in Gensokyo. After being defeated, she leaves Gensokyo.

The game profile reveals the scholar she fell in love was the same scholar Seiryuu Sya had married and was forced to abandon in the past. Rika had gone into Gensokyo to meet Seiryuu, since the scholar had no desire in meeting Seiryuu again.

Species: Hermit
Ability: Manipulating the beauties of nature (wind, flowers, snow and moon)

A hermit originating from an Eastern country that arrived from the Hermit World. Originally, Rika was an as-yet-unmarried daughter from a rich family, but she grew fond of a particularly exceptional scholar. Although her family opposed her relationship, she persisted in her decision.

She liked his original and different way of thinking. Yet when she confessed her feelings towards him, she was informed:

"The person I once loved the most has already left me, and from that moment on, I have no longer been able to love anyone else, as my heart only belongs to one person. Furthermore, I will become a hermit soon, and gain an almost unlimited lifespan. Because of this, a relationship between us cannot possibly work out."

Several days later, the clouds grew overcast, lightning flashed and thunder roared. The scholar had become a hermit, and had left her behind. Rika was extremely unsatisfied at being rejected, but she did not give up on her intention. Thus, she decided to begin her training in the hermit arts to pursue the scholar to wherever he had departed to.

To her surprise, her family wholly supported their daughter's decision to train to become a hermit, and did their utmost to help her in her quest.

The difficulty of training to become a hermit was something she did not expect. The mists and morning dew served as her only nourishment. There were many occasions where she wanted to give up, but the thought of meeting him again constantly remained within her mind.

Finally, one day, her endless training reached an endpoint. As she ascended the ladder of clouds, the mists parted, and she was surrounded by hundreds of birds. And at the other end of the ladder:

The Hermit World with its flowers in full bloom.

As well as the scholar, coming forward to receive her.


And after that, many centuries passed.

The Hermit World:

Rika: "Did you get the news I sent you?"

"Hmm..."

Rika: "Well? Aren't you going? Now, she's in Gensokyo."

"I know that."

Rika: "Then, why?"

"Don't you think that with all that's happened up till now, there's no point in seeing her again? Or do you really want to watch me go looking for her?"

Rika: "Hehehe~ since you're not going, then I'll be the one going to Gensokyo instead~"

"You? Why?"

Rika: "Just take it that I'm going there on a vacation~"

"You'll probably cause yet another issue there if you go."

Rika: "Ayaya, I'll be careful this time."

"Fine, do whatever you want..."
