'''Rin Satsuki''' ({{lang|ja|冴月麟}} Satsuki Rin) was supposed to be the third playable character of ''[[Embodiment of Scarlet Devil]]'' who was cut during production but still managed to leave a trace in the game data. If you do a text search of the EoSD data files, you can find the name "{{lang|ja|冴月麟}}" near the other playable characters. Associated with her are the attack types {{lang|ja|花符}} (Flower Sign) and {{lang|ja|風符}} (Wind Sign). An alleged portrait of her (or an otherwise unknown character) appears on [[Team Shanghai Alice]]'s circle cut in the Comiket when ''Embodiment of Scarlet Devil'' was first released. The Stage 1 midboss sprites of what looks much like the character in the portrait was found in the code, using a tool to rip graphics from the game.
==ConceptCharacter Basis==
Her name Rin ({{lang|ja|麟}}) stands for the mythological creature [[Wikipedia:Qilin|Kirin]], prompting some to believe that she was supposed to be a personification of a kirin. This is supported by the fact that by the Japanese name order, her name is "Satsu'''ki Rin'''." Official pronunciation and romanization are unknown. Her name "{{lang|ja|冴月 麟}}" is generally pronounced "Rin Satsuki ({{lang|ja|さつき りん}})."
Other possibilities for reading her name includes {{lang|ja|冴}} as ''sae'' or ''kooru'' and {{lang|ja|月}} as ''getsu'' or ''gatsu''. {{lang|ja|麟}} however, has only one reading '''rin'''.
If the girl depicted in the [[Miscellaneous illustrations by ZUN#Circle Cut|circle cut]] ''is'' Rin Satsuki, then Rin appears to wear a large ribbon on her hair with cherry hair pins and a dress-like blouse. She holds an [[Wikipedia:Erhu|erhu]] upside down. The colours are unknown because the circle cut is in monochrome.
