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...

  種族:妖精

  能力:不明

  どこにでもいる通りすがりの妖精。

  花束を作るために、ひたすらに花を摘んでいただけ。
  訪れた花畑にいくつかの珍しい花があったことも知らないまま、その花も拾った。

  結果として、訳が分からないままにハチに追われていた。
  ハチは彼女が持っていたある花に明かな興味を持っていたが、
  常識が欠けていた妖精は花を持ったまま逃げてしまった。

Species: Fairy

Ability: Unknown

A simple fairy who was just passing-by.

She was just picking some flowers to make a bouquet.
Unaware of the rarity of some of the flowers in the field she was visiting, she picked them up anyway.

As a result, she was being chased by a bee and had no idea why.
This bee clearly showed attention towards a particular flower this fairy was carrying.
Of course, lacking common sense, she ran away with the flowers in hand.

ゼフィランサスの検索 〜 Searching Youkai

Suzume (スズメ) is the stage 1 boss.

Concept

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

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.

  種族:妖精(ミツバチ)

  能力:視覚・触覚・嗅覚で花の種類が判る程度の能力

  大雨が降りながらも花粉を集め続ける、勇敢なミツバチの一人。

  「勇敢」というのは大袈裟だけどね。女王蜂の命令だから外にいるだけ。
  人間も含めて、自分より大きい者を見るとすぐに怖がるクセもある。

  蜂戦隊の仲間にも直接戦闘じゃない限り気にするな、と言われてるけど
  人間を見るといつも大声を出さずにいられない。
  そして大体さらに慌ててしまって、うまくいくとただ祈って、そのまま突撃してしまう。

  むしろ巣での仕事を考え直した方がよさそう。

Species: Fairy (Honeybee)

Ability: Capable of recognizing any flower by scent, touch or sight

One of the brave honeybees who were gathering pollen despite the heavy rainfalls.

"Brave" is an exaggerated word, however. It was her Queen's order.
This bee is also scared very easily by things bigger than her. This includes humans.

Other soldiers in her squandron keeps telling her not to mind them until direct conflict,
but she just can't help but to yell every time she sees one.
Under this kind of pressure, she usually decides to rush in and hope for the best.

Really, she should reconsider her job at the hive.

オーバースローンフォーセス

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

Concept

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

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.

  種族:人間

  能力:磁気を操る程度の能力

  超能力者、そして目立ちたがり屋として生まれつきの才能を持つ人間。
  「ミレリム」とは自分で付けた別名。どうしてか本名を隠しているらしい。

  前からその力を把握していて、練習するために妖怪の樹海に来る。
  でも練習を長く続けたあと、その力の秘密がやっと明らかになった。
  物を意のままに動かしていたのは念力じゃなくて、磁気力のおかげだった。

  その発見がきっかけに、今までよりさらに自信過剰になって「上昇した」とか
  「人間を超えた」とか、変なモノローグをするようになった。

  主人公に止められなかったら、妖怪と正面から喧嘩を売って
  きっと屈辱的敗北を喰らったのだろう。

Species: Human

Ability: Capable of manipulating magnetism

A human naturally talented with ESP powers and for being a show-off.
"Mirerym" is a nickname she gave herself. She's hiding her real name for some reason.

She is greatly aware of this power and comes to the Great Youkai Forest to train.
After training for so long, however, the secrets of her powers unveiled before her eyes:
The fact that she could move objects wasn't because of telekinesis, but because of magnetism.

This discovery made her even more over-confident than she already was, leading to very
weird speeches about how she's ascended or something.

If she wasn't stopped in time, she would have fought a youkai head-on and
would have inevitably experienced a humiliating defeat.

天国の戦場の旱魃 〜 Weather Drive

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

Concept

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

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.

  種族:魃

  能力:日照りと熱を呼ぶ程度の能力

  なんとなく集めている信仰から、神様を自称している魃(ひでりがみ)。
  鏡の世界に住む「鏡の生き物」の一人である。

  大昔、黄帝の率いる雨使いと戦争をしたことがいくつかあった。
  今となると、歩くところに熱波を起こしながら、鏡の世界の外に
  行く方法を求めて彷徨っている。

  鏡の世界は特別な鏡を越して見える、幻想郷の平行世界のようなところ。
  この世界の妖怪は、最初だと幻想郷の人間に恐れられていたが、人間が
  「化け物は鏡から出られない」と分かった時から存在が薄くなっていた。

  彼女の力が天照大神に似ていたから、天照大神へ与えていた信仰は
  光線にも少し分けていた。これで恐怖じゃなくて、人間の敬愛を受ける
  ことで生き続けるようになった。

  そして彼女は神様になるために、さらに信仰を集めていこうと決めた。
  それを獲得するには本物の幻想郷に入って力を発揮して、崇拝される必要があった。

  お洒落な服を着ると信仰をもっと集められると考えているから、流行に敏感である。

Species: Hiderigami

Ability: Capable of calling upon drought and heat

A Hiderigami calling herself a goddess thanks to the faith she's gathering.
She is one of the Fauna of Mirrors, which are the inhabitants of the Mirror world.

In ancient times, she used to fight wars with a rain user under the command of the Yellow Emperor.
Now, she wanders in search of a way to go outside the Mirror world,
causing heat waves wherever she goes.

The Mirror world works like a parallel version of Gensokyo which can only be seen through
special mirrors. Although the youkai in this world used to be feared by the humans of Gensokyo,
they started to disappear when humans realized these monsters couldn't pass through.

Thanks to her powers being similar to the goddess Amaterasu, some of the faith going towards
that goddess was shared to Kousen, allowing her to survive not on the fear of humans,
but on their admiration.

As a result, she tried to gather more faith in order to attain godhood. And to attain this goal,
she needs to enter the actual Gensokyo to make a demonstration of her powers and be worshipped.

She also thinks wearing fancy clothing will attract more faith, so she carefully follows fashion trends.
