良いとこのお嬢ちゃんなので、いつも綺麗な着物を着ています。

She's a good young lady who always wears a beautiful kimono.

この世界の人間は基本和装なので、里でも浮くことは無い筈です。

The humans of this world wear basic Japanese clothes, so even the Human Villagers never stand out.

彼女は薄命の運命を持っている筈ですが、割と長く生きている気がしますし、一層元気になっているような気もします。医療の進歩ですかね。

She should be fated to have a short life, but she seems to have been living for a long time, and she's only been getting better.
Is this a result of medical advances?

Personality
阿求は書籍「東方求聞史紀」(一迅社)の中の書籍「幻想郷縁起」の書き手として初登場。天武天皇に舎人(とねり)として仕えた稗田阿礼が暗誦した「帝紀」「旧辞」をもとに太安万侶がまとめたのが、史書「古事記」とされる。その稗田阿礼が転生して生まれた子が、完全記憶能力を受け継いだ「御阿礼の子」として稗田家代々の当主となってきた。阿求は一代目の阿一から数えて九代目。

Personality
Hieda no Akyuu made her first appearance in Perfect Memento in Strict Sense (published by Ichijinsha), as the author of the "Gensokyo Chronicle". The history book known as the "Kojiki" was compiled by Oo no Yasumaro, and it's said that it was based on the "Kyuuji" and "Teiki" recited by Hieda no Are, who served Emperor Tenmu as a Toneri. A child born from the reincarnation of Hieda no Are who inherits Are's perfect recollection ability is known as the "Child of Miare", and becomes the head of the Hieda family for generations. Counting from the first generation, Aichi, Akyuu is the ninth generation.

阿求や先代の御阿礼の子は、里の人間たちが安全に生活できるよう目立った妖怪をまとめた書物を綴ってきた。題名を「幻想郷縁起」、主な内容は妖怪図鑑、英雄伝、危険区域案内等。御阿礼の子はその能力ゆえにかは不明だが他の人間と比べて寿命が短く、だいたい 30 年弱しか生きられない。その後転生までのあいだは地獄で次の体が用意されるのを待つという。そのため「幻想郷縁起」は 120 年から 180 年に一冊の編纂となっている。

Akyuu, along with the preceding Children of Miare, have written books about Gensokyo's prominent youkai so that the people of the Human Village can live safely. These books are known as the "Gensokyo Chronicle", and they mainly consist of youkai field guides, biographies on Gensokyo's heroines, information on danger zones, etc. It's unknown as to whether this is due to their abilities, but the Children of Miare tend to have shorter lifespans than other humans, living for approximately 30 years. After that, they wait in Hell until their next body is prepared for reincarnation. That's why it takes 120-180 years for a volume of the Gensokyo Chronicle to be made.
