==General Information==
There's traces of information scattered in relation to ''[[Embodiment of Scarlet Devil]]'' that could be associated with her. In the games data, there are two attack types: {{nihongo|Flower Sign|花符}} and {{nihongo|Wind Sign|風符}}. 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 (shown in the info box on the left). Additionally, shown in the data files by using a tool to rip graphics from the game, there is an unused character in the Stage 1 enemy sprites that looks much like the character in the portrait, although there's a possibility that this was originally going to be [[Rumia]].
Incidentally, the number 3 on the circle cut circumstantially points to three bits of character information about her, the portrait itself, unused midboss sprites, and her unused character selection screen information. This is later pointed at again in the credits, where "pbg" (read: "princess bubblegum"), "ant", and "fang" appear. The game itself is called ''Embodiment of Scarlet Devil'', which might refer to her character portrait -- additionally, she holds an erhu, which is made of python skin, again suggesting a connection to the devil. She is popularly depicted in red in this way. Balls ornamenting her ribbon are often shown as cherries, which may refer to the Stage 1 theme, ''A Soul as Red as a Ground Cherry''. "Soul" refers to the claustrum, which is circular in shape, again circumstantially connected to the "circumcision" written on her erhu.
Later, [[Clownpiece]] appears at the [[Sea of Tranquillity]] in ''[[Legacy of Lunatic Kingdom]]'', suggesting a connection to the clownish ribbon Rin wears in her hair and her name "冴月麟" (serene moon phosphorus).
