 幻想郷の秋、特に落葉広葉樹林の変容を司る神様である。秋も終わりが近づくと彼女の力で山は燃えるように赤くなる。いわゆる紅葉である。一枚一枚丁寧に色を塗っていくのでどうしてもムラが出る。黄色や濃い茶色が混ざるのはその所為だ。 She is a goddess of Gensokyo's autumn, particularly controlling when the leaves on the deciduous broadleaf trees fall. When the end of autumn approaches, her power causes the trees to turn a fiery red: the so-called autumn colors. Since she has to thoroughly paint each leaf one by one, she can't prevent some unevenness from appearing. That's why yellow and dark brown are also mixed in.
 紅葉は落葉へと変わる。これも彼女の仕事の一つだ。一枚一枚丁寧に落としている……かと思いきやこれは木を蹴っ飛ばして荒々しく散らしているそうだ。 Autumn leaves turn into fallen leaves. This is another one of her jobs. She carefully drops each leaf, one by one... or so you might think. It appears that she kicks the trees, causing the leaves to scatter wildly.
 彼女には神様の妹が居る。妹は秋の中でも豊穣を司る神様だ。そちらの方が人間に人気が高い事に若干嫉妬している。 She has a younger sister who is also a goddess of autumn. She rules over the harvest, so Shizuha is somewhat jealous of her sister's higher popularity with the humans.
 性格は悲観的でいつも終わり(*1)が来る、と思っている。秋の季節以外はやる事が無く、ややもすれば消えてしまう位だ。 Her personality is pessimistic; she believes that the end (*1) will always come. Outside of autumn, she does nothing, practically disappearing.
対処法 Approach
 危険性は無いだろう。 She is not dangerous.
 綺麗な紅葉を見たければ、彼女の事も思い出してあげよう。 When you see the beautiful autumn foliage, try to remember her.
*1 一年の終わり。 1: The end of the year.
