Most of the characters in Unification of the Artful Rain are original and non-existent in the Touhou Project. The following three are, however, officially part of the Touhou Project and are playable characters in Unification of the Artful Rain, each with two different shot types. All other characters, barring the stage 1 midboss, are original.


Reimu Hakurei
雨乞踊の巫女
The Rain-Dancing Shrine Maiden

Reimu Hakurei
Playable Character

種族:人間

能力:飛ぶ程度の能力

毎度お馴染みの巫女さん。博麗神社の巫女さん。 そしていやが応でも、幻想郷の一流の異変解決専門家。

幻想郷では雨季は珍しいものでもない。今回も例外ではない。 その大雨は、初夏にしてはあまりにもひどかった。 だけど彼女は結論に飛びつけないほど疲れていて、ただ見過ごした。

人間の里から「雨の中にいると気力がなくなってしまう」という 噂を聞いた時、すぐさま四季異変を思い出した。 でもその犯人は同じことを二度繰り返すはずがない。 この気力を奪う雨の原因はきっと他のどこかにある。

彼女が見慣れていたこの状況は、新しい異変みたいだった。

Species: Human

Ability: Capable of flying

The now-familiar shrine maiden of the Hakurei Shrine. Gensokyo's finest incident resolver, whether she likes it or not.

The rainy season was no singularity in Gensokyo. This time was no different. What's more, the four seasons incident could alternatively bring a few after-effects to it. She was too tired to jump to conclusions and let it pass.

When she had received echoes from the Human Village that informed her people were losing energy while staying under the rain, she quickly reacted to see Okina Matara, the culprit behind the previous incident, in need for explanation. The goddess claimed it wasn't her doing.

This situation, being familiar enough to her, showed signs of a brand new incident.


Marisa Kirisame
炯然天気の魔法使い
The Radiant Weather Magician

Marisa Kirisame
Playable Character

種族:人間

能力:魔法を使う程度の能力

幻想郷に住む、普通な魔法使い。蒐集癖を持つ。 そして「幻想郷の一流の異変解決専門家」(自称)。

雨の中に長く立ち続けると力が奪われることに、魔法使いの彼女は早速気づいた。 他方では、彼女のミニ八卦炉は何かの違うエネルギーを発達していたみたいだ。 八卦炉自体は生き物じゃなかったから、その火力は減らなかった。 だが、雨滴が八卦炉にかかると、そのエネルギーの放出は圧倒的なものとなった。

魔理沙にとって、これは新しい力を試してみようという不可抗力の誘いだった。 そして奪われた気力はどこへ行っているのか知りたかった。 きっと他の場所へと流れているだろう。

ミニ八卦炉の新しい実験材料を集めるにはちょうどいい機会のようだった。

Species: Human

Ability: Capable of using magic

An ordinary magician living in Gensokyo. She has a mania for collecting things. "Gensokyo's finest incident resolver", that's what she claims herself.

The magician quickly noticed a loss of power after staying under the rain for too long. On the other hand, it seemed like her mini-Hakkero was developing some kind of different energy. Since it didn't possess life energy on its own, its firepower didn't decrease. However, with the droplets resting on it, the bursts of energy it was releasing were devastating.

To Marisa, this was an irresistible invitation to try this new power out. She was still curious to know what all of this stolen life energy was going. It must have been drifting away to some place, definitely.

Looks like it was time to gather some new resources to try for her mini-Hakkero.


Komachi Onozuka
大洪水の死後の案内人
The Underworld Guide of the Deluge

Komachi Onozuka
Playable Character

種族:死神

能力:距離を操る程度の能力

三途の川の怠惰な死神。

上司である閻魔様から裁きを受けるために、 亡き者の魂を彼岸まで渡すのが彼女の仕事。 だけど最近、幽霊達はその最中に消えてしまっている。

似たような現象は前にもあったけど、川を渡るのに数日をかける重い罪の者に限っていた。 今度は無罪の魂でも消えてしまい、安らかな輪廻はできなくなる。

なるべく異変を早く解決するために、彼女は調査しに行く。 ダメージが大きすぎると閻魔様に説教されちゃうから…

Species: Shinigami

Ability: Capable of manipulating distance

A lazy god of death from the Sanzu River.

Her job is to carry the spirits of the deceased to the other side of the river, so that these souls can be judged by the Yama, her boss. Lately, these souls have been disappearing mid-ferriage.

This phenomenon has occured before, but only for sinners whose travel would last for days. This time around, even souls free of sin would disappear, preventing their peaceful reincarnation.

She goes to investigate in order to resolve this incident as quickly as possible. If the damage gets too big, she might be in for a huge lecture by the Yama...

Fairy

Daiyousei (大妖精 Daiyousei) is the stage 1 midboss. Keep in mind that while she is an official Touhou Project character, only information relating to her role in this fangame will be noted here.

Concept[edit]

Name

While her name hasn't really been officialized, she kept Daiyousei (大妖精, lit. "Big Fairy" or "Greater Fairy") as her name to be easily identified.

Appearance

Daiyousei remains faithful to her original design. She has green hair arranged in a side pigtail. She's wearing a blue dress and her wings are golden. This time around, she's also wearing high white stockings and black shoes. As for the flower bouquet she's usually holding, it now serves as a decoration for her pigtail.

She's also holding a rain lily in her hand, that she carefreely picked up while playing around.

Story[edit]

As she was playing around in a flower field, she decided to make a bouquet. But didn't she know that picking up a rare zephyranthes could get her followed by Suzume. Daiyousei panicked an ran away from the bee, encountering the protagonist during her escape.

Suzume (スズメ) is the stage 1 boss.

Concept[edit]

Name

Her name Suzume (スズメ) can signify "Sparrow" (雀, hiragana: すずめ), if we read it as a kanji. While she's not bird related, it was a name she was given by her Queen because of her timid behavior with humans. She can be very forgetful sometimes, so her name could also reference her as a birdbrain.

Her character title The Flower-Hunting Bee of Light is a reference to her previous concept name Suzume Lightbee.

Appearance

Suzume is a bee, which can be shown in her yellow and dark brown color palette. She has long brown hair in a ponytail and yellow eyes. Her dress is yellow with dark stripes and forms an open spiral towards the bottom. Her sting is also hanging at the tip of her hair.

Story[edit]

Suzume is a honeybee who lives in a hive near the Forest of Magic. The bees' society is very organized and everyone there has a purpose. Suzume is charged to bring back pollen extracted from rare flowers. However, the frequent downpours recently have made her job much more difficult, narrowing her time limits to find these rare flowers.

This time, it was a rain lily that needed to be pollinated. Right before she could find it, a fairy took it in front of her and left. Suzume chased her as fast as she could, but eventually found the protagonist instead.

Mirerym (ミレリム) is the stage 2 midboss and boss.

Concept[edit]

Name

Mirerym is spelled in a way to ressemble a palindrome and so can be read in both ways. Her name also written to ressemble the word mirror split in two by an actual mirror, referencing her role as a gateway to the Mirror World.

Appearance

Mirerym has long purple hair and twintails, as well as purple eyes and a red ribbon. She is wearing a light lavender vest, a dark red dress underneath it and brown boots.

Story[edit]

Mirerym is a teenager who is able to control electromagnetics as psychic powers. She wishes to grow stronger to challenge youkai and protect the Human Village, and so she trains in the Great Youkai Forest to avoid any collateral damage in the village. While she was practicing, a gate to another dimension opened in front of her eyes. Unable to control it, she decided to leave it here, until she heard the protagonist enter the forest.

In order to protect them, she decided to lure them to the other side of the forest for their safety.

Kousen Hoshikusa (乾草 光線 Hoshikusa Kousen) is the stage 3 midboss and boss, inspired by the Chinese Goddess Hanba.

Concept[edit]

Name

Her name Kousen (光線) means light ray, linked to her affiliation to the sun, as well as the Sun Goddess Amaterasu. Her surname, Hoshikusa (乾草), means dried grass, due to her ability as a hiderigami to bring drought.

Appearance

Kousen has blonde hair all gathered on one side of her head, covering one of her green eyes. She wears a black and grey jacket with golden dots, extending with many patterned layers on one side. She is also wearing a black dress, black stockings on a single leg and black boots.

She has a black phoenix crown and a long green floating cloth wrapped around her wrist.

Story[edit]

Kousen Hoshikusa was a member of the Yellow Emperor's army before she was cast away into the Mirror World. Her status as a goddess was disappearing and so she became part of the Fauna of Mirrors. However, she was still attached to her old divine status and started use mirrors around Gensokyo as a tool to attract faith inside the Mirror World. And so, the faith given to Amaterasu was shared to Kousen, allowing her to maintain some of her godly powers.

She was the first one to notice a foreign presence inside the Mirror World and decided to investigate, meeting with the protagonist.
