Reimu Hakurei (博麗 霊夢 Hakurei Reimu) is the main character of the Touhou Project. As the Miko of Hakurei, she manages the Hakurei Border of Gensokyo and exterminates youkai.

General Information

Name

Reimu's full name is Reimu Hakurei (博麗 霊夢). The characters for Reimu's last name Hakurei (博麗) literally mean something along the lines of "esteemed companion". The first word Haku () means "wide" or "exposition" while Rei () means "lovely", "graceful", and "beautiful". Hakurei (博麗) is also another name for sake. Her first name Reimu (霊夢) means "revelatory dream" or "a vision"; the first word, Rei () means "spirit" or "soul" while Yume () is read Mu and means "dream".

Reimu's name was different during the PC-98 era. Her name read as 博麗, and from Shuusou Gyoku onwards, it was changed to 博麗.

Appearance

She has a very large ribbon on her head, and a red hair ornament attached on both sides of her face. Her hair length is different depending on the work, but later works tend to have her hair longer. As she is called the "red-white miko"[2], she wears red and white miko clothing. She has a yellow ribbon, on her chest, although its color changes (it was red in Embodiment of Scarlet Devil, Perfect Cherry Blossom, blue in Phantasmagoria of Flower View, Subterranean Animism). Her miko clothing has detached sleeves, a unique design that exposes her armpits. Her miko clothing and her purification rod (お祓い棒, oharai-bou) come from Rinnosuke Morichika, but it is unknown who designs them. She is moderately tall. In chapter 7 of Strange and Bright Nature Deity, she had chopsticks with her left hand, and it stated that she was left-handed[3] but she held a pen with her right hand in Subterranean Animism. Therefore, she is actually ambidextrous, or she might just be used to writing words with her right hand.

Story

Highly Responsive to Prayers

A lone shrine sits Far East; the Hakurei Shrine. The powerful seal placed there has worn away and the shrine gets destroyed. Now Reimu, seeking revenge and armed with the Yin-Yang Orbs goes to the gate to face the non-human creatures inside. The gate either leads to Makai or Hell.

Story of Eastern Wonderland

Reimu is training intensely in the harsh extremities of a mountain (or taking it easy, your pick), but when she comes back to her home, she learns her shrine is infested by youkai, ghosts and other non-human creatures. With her faithful turtle Genjii and her trusty Yin-Yang Orbs, she sets out to find the one who caused the trouble.

Phantasmagoria of Dim.Dream

Things have been peaceful lately so Reimu has time to kill. She discovers some old ruins with a promise of something good for whoever enters. However, six others also want the prize so they decided to fight for access.

Lotus Land Story

Reimu mulls over on how quiet things have been and then spirits begin charging into her shrine. She starts to exterminate a few then realizes this must've been the work of something bigger, so she decides to go straight to the source of this.

Mystic Square

A large outpour of demons are appearing throughout the land and it's Reimu's duty to exterminate them! But this leaves no time for herself, so she heads towards the source, Makai. This also leaves three other characters to investigate.

Embodiment of the Scarlet Devil

A scarlet mist covers the sky of Gensokyo. Reimu who is annoyed by the mist, sets out to stop the incident.

Perfect Cherry Blossom

Even though it is May, spring shows no signs of coming, leaving the inhabitants of Gensokyo in a cold winter weather that only got worse. Reimu, noticing cherry petals blowing from the Netherworld, decides to set out and stop the perpetrator from holding spring hostage.

Immaterial and Missing Power

As Reimu makes preparations for an upcoming feast, both humans and youkai are drawn to the feast and are unable to stop partying. Reimu is suspicious of a strange mist that covers Gensokyo and goes to investigate.

Imperishable Night

Yukari is not able to sleep and discovers the moon has been replaced by a fake moon. She manages to drag Reimu into investigating with her.

Phantasmagoria of Flower View

Reimu, who is usually easy-going, is disturbed by the amount of flowers blooming and, not to be the one who shrugs off her duties, goes on to search for answers.

Mountain of Faith

Reimu's shrine has become a hotspot for youkai, so she doesn't get many human visitors to do patronage. She receives a foreboding threat from a mysterious visitor, who says that the Hakurei shrine has to shut down, and be taken over by another god. Reimu, always the optimist, decided to go to Youkai Mountain to face the goddess who is making these threats.

Scarlet Weather Rhapsody

Eccentric weather incidents were occurring in Gensokyo's summer. The Hakurei Shrine has been decimated by a mighty earthquake and pestered by a parching drought, so Reimu seeks to defeat the person responsible.

Subterranean Animism

A geyser appears behind Hakurei Shrine and at first Reimu is happy, because its heat will alleviate the cold of winter. However, evil spirits emerge from the earth and loiter about Gensokyo. Reimu is sent to investigate with either Yukari Yakumo, Suika Ibuki, or Aya Shameimaru.

Touhou Hisoutensoku

A humanoid giant is trampling about Gensokyo. Three residents have a few theories on what that could be...

Reimu falls into a pitfall and sees Sanae Kochiya. She suspects her of causing mischief and attacks her.

Taisui Xingjun has sent out minions to attack Hong Meiling, and one of them is a fake Reimu.

Undefined Fantastic Object

Reimu sees a flying ship and thinking it's filled with treasure, decides to pursue it.

Reimu wants the treasure ship and nothing will stand in her way!

Ten Desires

A large number of divine spirits appear, threatening the flower viewing, so it's up to Reimu, Marisa Kirisame, Sanae Kochiya and Youmu Konpaku to figure out what made the spirits appear.

Bohemian Archive in Japanese Red

Shortly after the events of Perfect Cherry Blossom, Aya Shameimaru attends a flower viewing at the Hakurei Shrine, where she meets Reimu, who is in a foul mood because no one wants to help her clean up after event. Aya plies her with sake and questions her about the incident, commenting in the article that "Reimu just seems to be a laid-back drunkard". In the follow-up interview, Reimu claims Aya's paper is full of lies and insists her account of the incident is true, though Aya still doesn't recognize Reimu's deeds.

Relationships

Although Reimu often shows up as the main character, she does not participate in mundane activities to the extent Marisa Kirisame does, limiting her familiarity with most of Gensokyo's population. Nevertheless, she has interacted with almost every other character that has ever made a physical appearance, with the exception of the Unnamed Giant Catfish, Renko Usami, and Maribel Hearn.

Marisa Kirisame

Reimu's best friend is likely Marisa Kirisame, who spends a lot of her time at the shrine. They are there together the majority of the time in various print works, prologues, and extra stage prologues, hanging out together and discussing or attending the latest events in Gensokyo. Reimu has known Marisa since Story of Eastern Wonderland, where Mima had Marisa fight Reimu. Their friendship may have started soon after that, as in all of the bad endings, Marisa decides she needs to train more, and drags Reimu along to train with her, much to Reimu's chagrin.

Yukari Yakumo

Despite her antagonistic personality, Yukari Yakumo mentors Reimu by pushing her to increase her spiritual powers, such as learning how to invoke the gods in Silent Sinner in Blue. She also occasionally seeks Reimu's assistance in resolving incidents in Imperishable Night and Subterranean Animism.

Rinnosuke Morichika;

Reimu is familiar with Rinnosuke Morichika, a shopkeeper who owns Kourindou, who she sometimes visits to hang out or for wares (and sometimes shoplifts).

Sanae Kochiya

Despite being the priestess of a rival shrine, Sanae Kochiya is on friendly terms with Reimu and appears frequently in Wild and Horned Hermit alongside Reimu and Marisa. She came on a bit strongly when she and Reimu first met, but she really thought she was helping the Hakurei Shrine out by attempting to get it to switch gods to Kanako Yasaka. After Mountain of Faith, Sanae offered to help Reimu as a fellow miko to gather faith for the shrine, and appears to have been friends with Reimu since then.

Genjii

In the PC-98 canon, Reimu used a turtle as a means for flight until the end of Mystic Square; that turtle was Genjii. Reimu calls him "gramps".

Three Fairies of Light

Reimu is often the target of pranks by the Three Fairies of Light, and Reimu tends to exterminate them on sight whenever she catches them (unless Marisa is escorting them). As of Oriental Sacred Place, the three fairies moved into a tree near the Hakurei Shrine and become Reimu's neighbors, increasing the amount of pranks even more. Reimu aims to evict the fairies, but cannot find their treehouse, which is actually located on the Hakurei Border.

Byakuren Hijiri

Reimu views Byakuren Hijiri and the Myouren Temple as a rival of sorts to herself and the Hakurei Shrine. In Ten Desires, Toyosatomimi no Miko points out that Reimu is friendly towards Byakuren. Although Reimu says they're religious rivals, she does not seem to deny it. In one of her Undefined Fantastic Object endings, Reimu is depressed at how quickly Byakuren's temple is picking up followers compared to her own shrine. By the time of Strange and Bright Nature Deity, Reimu is angry at the temple for stealing away her shrine's followers (ignoring that her shrine never had (m)any followers in the first place), but Byakuren seems unaware of this.

Kasen Ibaraki

Kasen Ibaraki is a regular at the shrine and acts as a mentor (and sometimes guardian) of Reimu, whom she fears is too concerned with worldly desires.

Unnamed kitsune & Unnamed kuda-gitsune

In Wild and Horned Hermit Chapter 8, The Unnamed kitsune offered to help Reimu gain worshipers after being caught disguised as Marisa during a party at Hakurei Shrine. She was, however, deceiving Reimu by letting her use the powers of her kuda-gitsune. Using her ability, they gathered worshipers. Kasen Ibaraki discovered that these fox youkai had been consuming Reimu's willpower and wealth as payment for their help. However, they managed to walk away from the Hakurei Shrine with all her wealth.

Other Minor or Unknown Meetings or Associations

Ruukoto

In the PC-98 canon, she obtains a robotic maid named Ruukoto as a servant at the end of Phantasmagoria of Dim.Dream though no reference has been made to it since.

Mima

In the PC-98 canon, Mima is an Akuryou who haunts the surroundings of the Hakurei Shrine, after many confrontations and being resealed by Reimu, she decides to spend her days making fun of the miko.

Suika Ibuki

Suika Ibuki, who often freeloads her shrine after the events of Immaterial and Missing Power is also is her ally during Subterranean Animism.

Aya Shameimaru

Aya Shameimaru, the tengu reporter was also her ally during the events of Subterranean Animism.

VIVIT
Note: This section is part of the Seihou Project by the Doujin circle "Shunsatsu sare do?".

VIVIT first met Reimu Hakurei at the Hakurei Shrine in Gensokyo during the Extra stage of Shuusou Gyoku. Reimu came to VIVIT with a rather aggressive voice, and VIVIT was somewhat confused to the way Reimu was speaking. She wouldn't let VIVIT speak up to what she was looking for and so she attacked VIVIT. After Reimu lost, VIVIT said to Reimu what she was looking for (the Holy Grail), and Reimu was confused and started asking questions. In Dolls in Pseudo Paradise, Reimu quotes "Oh, that girl... doesn't look like a human nor a youkai", where VIVIT is a robot. To add to this, later in Kioh Gyoku, VIVIT thought that Yuuka Kazami looked like Reimu.

Additional Information

  • Reimu seems to be scared before and after the boss battle with the Five Magic Stones, thus making this the only ever time that Reimu was scared and/or afraid of a boss before and after the battle.
  • Most of her theme from Lotus Land Story sounds similar to Elis and Kikuri's theme from Highly Responsive to Prayers, "Magic Mirror".
  • It is originally stated that she lives alone at the shrine, but other rarely seen characters (Mima and SinGyoku) are known to stay there or near there as well.
  • In Imperishable Night, Reimu is the only one whose partner doesn't mention the danger of the full moon.
  • In Touhou Hisoutensoku, if you activate Fantasy Temperament successfully in a 3rd round, a remix of "Eastern Mystical Love Consultation" will play with the sounds of the Fatal KO theme from the Hokuto no Ken fighting game, fitting because activation of the said Spell Card means the opponent is certainly already dead! Because of this, it is now known as the Hakurei Hyakuretsu Ken to some extent to the fanbase.
  • In Touhou Hisoutensoku, one of her alternative palettes looks similar to VIVIT, the heroine of the Seihou Project. Also, one of her palettes seems to be another maid homage, Ruukoto, or possibly Sanae Kochiya's colours. The palette also seems to resemble Mima from Highly Responsive to Prayers. Her white/light gray palette seems to resemble Toki from Hokuto no Ken.
PMiSS reimu.jpg
  • When playing Yukari's story mode in Scarlet Weather Rhapsody, Reimu breaks down in tears in the ending after Yukari defeats Tenshi and reduces the Hakurei Shrine to rubble for the second time, with Sakuya and Youmu looking on helplessly (although Suika offers to help rebuild it). This marks the first and only time where she is seen crying in a storyline scenario.
  • The shrine maiden at the end of Dolls in Pseudo Paradise is probably Reimu. She has Reimu's title, "Shrine Maiden of Paradise" (and her personality), and according to Bohemian Archive in Japanese Red's Music Column, the shrine maiden in the song that accompanies the ending section is Reimu (so basically, this shrine maiden has Reimu's song and title). However, only the shrine maiden at the end is referred to as the shrine maiden of paradise. Thus it is possible that the shrine maiden seen in the first half of the story is a different person altogether.
  • A "13th Shrine Maiden" signs off the Gensokyo Record in Perfect Cherry Blossom's prologue. ZUN has stated in an e-mail that the Gensokyo Record is unreliable (for one thing, the writing style of each section shows it was written by a different person each time), thus "there is a high possibility that Reimu is not the 13th Hakurei shrine maiden." (technically, this also means there is no proof that the person who wrote that section of the record is a shrine maiden at all).
  • It is shown in Oriental Sacred Place that the shrine sometimes gets various donations (including wine) from unknown sources (implied to be from the outside world, as the Hakurei Shrine lies on the border) and Yukari is shown in Oriental Sacred Place to sneak yen donations into the offering box when Reimu isn't looking.
  • Although Reimu has successfully resolved the incidents in each major Touhou game, it's possible that her win rate throughout the actual events of the games was not 100%. Perfect Memento in Strict Sense states that Reimu likes to request rematches until she finally wins (something which is allowed under the spell card rules). In essence, Reimu apparently has had to use a few continues every once in a while, but she still manages to get a good ending.

Fanon Culture

Reimu turns out to be a widely popular character among the fanbase. She is usually chosen as the playable character on a lot of fangames, or at least appears on a high number of fangames. Unlike most characters, Reimu has been compared to a lot of characters, especially some of the cast from the Seihou Project. Although Reimu is known to be the same character as her PC-98 form, some fans still depict both versions as different people, sometimes even been next to each other.

Reimu in most fangames is often a middling character better used for healing/buffing than offense, perhaps this is done in protest to her "overpowered heroine" status in the canon.

Destitute

In Embodiment of Scarlet Devil, it has been said that pretty much nobody goes to the shrine. Thus, it has been a common interpretation that she gets 0 donations. Due to this, she is called 貧乏巫女 (Binbou miko, lit. "destitute shrine maiden").

Armpits as a necessity

Because of how she dresses in the Windows Touhou games, her exposed armpits are sometimes a target for jokes and memes. Due to this, she is commonly called "waki miko" (腋巫女, lit. "armpit miko"). Upon hiding her armpits, anyone would notice at once, and before her back or chest or foot, her armpits are always the first thing appealed to.

Heretic

Other than the idea that "money is dirty" related to the "destitute" meme, in canon her personality is comparatively severe (in youkai extermination, she has no mercy), so she is sometimes called "Yakuza miko". Furthermore, upon facing off with Watatsuki no Toyohime in Silent Sinner in Blue, she used the words "if one doesn't shoot down and slay without one remaining, if there is impurity on the moon, danmaku shall be scattered", said to be a little severe and without mercy, so she occasionally does not spare using unfair measures.

Zombie Reimu

The drastic change in the color of Reimu's skin tone over the course of the Windows games (most noticeable in Mountain of Faith, in which her skin appears yellowish and almost jaundiced) raised eyebrows and led to a number of jokes and dubious theories, the most common of which is that she is actually an undead zombie.

Miscellaneous
  • Taoreimu, Dareimu, etc.: a defeated Reimu is sometimes called "Taoreimu" (from 倒れる), a hit Reimu is sometimes called "Dareimu" (from ), and an angry Reimu is sometimes called "Buchigireimu (from ぶち切れる), thus giving her shiritori-like names.
  • Concerning the god enshrined at the shrine: Rinnosuke knows who the god enshrined at the shrine is. However, since Reimu is completely uninterested in whatever god is enshrined, he did not say at all. Because of this, it has been fanon to interpret this to mean that the enshrined god is Mima or Gensokyo itself etc.
  • Oni Miko: When she shows her true strength, she becomes "Oni Miko" (鬼巫女).
  • Flight on Genji: Although Reimu is able to fly independently, she is still shown in a number of fanworks to still be sitting on Genjii, presumably either to be a show off or to have "extra power". The most notable fanwork to feature this is Touhou Soccer Moushuuden.
  • JoJo association: In the trend of JoJo associations, it appears Reimu is paired with Josuke Higashikata, the reason here being that Josuke's name has the characters for Touhou in it (東方仗助 for Josuke, 東方 for Touhou). Although personality wise, he could be closer to Marisa.
  • Silent Reimu: Sora No Amagumo has made a comic series most centered around Reimu with a few major changes: She's a silent, kind adorable girl, a contrast from the more common surly Reimus out there. And this rendition is pretty popular on both parts of the fandom.

Her usual attacks -namely amulet-attacks, spirit-power discharging (霊撃 -Spirit strike-), melee skills- are useless to current enemies. She's in some trouble.
Currently, she is the only person in the shrine.

Eternal Shrine Maiden
Reimu Hakurei

The shrine maiden of Hakurei Shrine. Talented, but lacks training. Basically, she doesn't like to train. They say she has fought plenty of magicians, evil spirits, youkai and even gods with her strong spiritual power (for no particular reason).
She's always involved in some strange affairs, though she seems to be dragged into most of them due to Marisa. Reimu pretends not to notice this. She sees Marisa as essentially a hopeless case.

Eternal Shrine Maiden

Reimu Hakurei
Shrine maiden of the Hakurei Shrine, and protagonist of the Touhou series. She appears quite carefree on the outside, and indeed deep down, she really is carefree. She lives in her shrine and is rarely visited by anyone, which causes her to be out of touch with current social norms. Even though she only extinguished certain sparks of conflict because they seemed to befall her without warning, her actions have generally resulted in preventing the residents of Gensokyo from visiting human settlements, and keeping outsiders away from wandering into Gensokyo.

Charms and the yin-yang orb are her weapons. Additionally, she has the ability to fly in the air.

The protagonist.

Chronologically, this title is not too far from the previous title, thus her age stays the same as before.

Unintentionally, she is a shrine maiden. Or rather, she is a shrine maiden only because the Touhou series has become the "Shrine Maiden Shooting Game" series. It feels like the cart has been placed before the horse to me.

This time, her outfit is not overly intricate like typical shrine maiden clothing, but has become quite simple and only remotely resembles that of a shrine maiden. Is she really a shrine maiden?

She's more like "You, red-white!" in my opinion.

Wonderful Shrine Maiden of Paradise, Reimu Hakurei

Hakurei Shrine's shrine maiden, and the protagonist. Her mind might appear normal, but in fact it is full of spring thoughts.
The shrine is always haunted by youkai, and they are very friendly to Reimu as well.
She is hardly performing the role of a shrine maiden at this point.
She hates training, and because of this, lacks ability. So her skill is quite so-so.
She hates to do her very best at anything that falls upon her.
That is because she does not believe that effort will be rewarded.
Because of that, the Hakurei Shrine's paper fortune doesn't have "末吉(Least luck)"
[Typically, a shrine's paper fortune has 大吉 (Best luck) / 中吉 (Medium luck) / 小吉 (Little luck) / 末吉 (Least luck) / 凶 (Misfortune) / 大凶 (Worst misfortune). 末吉 is usually interpreted as "You will get exactly as your effort"]

Charms and the yin-yang orb are her weapons. Additionally, she has the ability to fly in the air.

She has a smaller hit box, and her focused movement allows player to dodge very precisely.
Spirit Sign's "Hakurei Amulet" is quite easy to use. It allows you to focus on dodging bullets.
On the other hand, Dream Sign's "Extermination" wields destructive power of the highest class.
Bosses are killed quickly, but the invincibility duration of her bombs is the shortest of all characters. It is also lacking in both effective radius and damage.

  基本的に巫女さん。幻想郷の境にある博麗神社の巫女さん。博麗神社自体は、幻想郷と人間界の両方に位置する。
          ・・
  その境が博麗神社境内である。どちらからみても、人里離れた山奥に存在し、大きさもさほど無いし、御利益もゆかりも何も無い小さな神社なので、どのみち参拝客は殆ど来ない。
  この神社の中では、殆どの結界は無効化される。それだけ、幻想郷と人間界の境、博麗大結界の力は大きいのである。

  幻想郷で唯一、博麗の者だけが規律を持つ。その為、霊夢は一応制服のような物を着用している(他にも規律はあるはずなのだが・・・)紅白の服を着て、幻想郷の端っこから、幻想郷の空を見つめつつ、お茶でも飲むのが日課である。

  元々、霊夢は不思議な力を色々使えるが、それを活用したり自慢したりはしない。すべては在るがままに、である。

Wonderful Shrine Maiden of Paradise

Reimu Hakurei

She possess the ability to mainly fly in the air.

Basically, she is a shrine maiden. The shrine maiden of Hakurei Shrine, which is located on the boundary of Gensokyo.
The Hakurei Shrine exists in both Gensokyo and the world of humans at the same time.
The boundary is the home territory of the Hakurei Shrine. From both sides, it is located at a very remote place from human villages, and is also kind of small, and has no known history or benefits. So it's no wonder that it rarely gets any visitors.
Inside the shrine, almost all foreign boundaries will be nullified. That alone should say that the Hakurei Boundary, the boundary between Gensokyo and the world of humans, is amazingly powerful.

Only those of the Hakurei have rules to follow in Gensokyo. Therefore, Reimu always wears clothes that is apparently some kind of uniform (she is supposed to have many other rules too, though...). Her daily routine consists of wearing red-white, staring at Gensokyo's sky from the edge of Gensokyo, and drinking tea.

By nature, Reimu can use various mysterious powers, but she does not use them to boast about them. Everything is, as is, after all.

   非常に単純な思考の持ち主で、怒る時は怒り、笑う時は笑う。裏表のない性格は、人間妖怪問わず惹き付ける。その為、神社はいつも色んな者が集まるのである。

   体術にしても妖術にしても、修行は不足気味(というか殆どしない)だが、余りある天性のセンスでカバーしていて、もの凄く強い。それはもう、人とは思えない位に。ワープしていたり、ホーミングしていたりするが、本人はまっすぐ動いているつもり。ずるい巫女さん。

Wonderful Shrine Maiden of Paradise

Reimu Hakurei

Species: Human
Location: Hakurei Shrine
Ability: Flying in the air

A typical shrine maiden from Hakurei Shrine. She always lives on ideas off the top of her head, and doesn't consider something seriously. The only thing she does that actually resembles a shrine maiden's duties is enjoying tea and life on the veranda.

She is quite simple-minded, thus when she's angry she's angry, and when she smiles she smiles. Her open personality makes her well-liked by both humans and youkai. Due to that, many people stay close to the shrine.

She lacks training in both melee and spells (or rather, she rarely does them), but she covers that up with the numerous talents she's born with. So she's quite tough, enough to make you wonder if she's really a human. While she warps or uses guided shots, it's all straight from her perspective. What a mean shrine maiden.

Wonderful Shrine Maiden of Paradise, Reimu Hakurei

Hakurei Shrine's Shrine Maiden.
A human that lives on the boundary. She has the ability to fly in the air.

She is the shrine maiden of the Hakurei Shrine, which is located at the edge of Gensokyo and (possibly) has ancient and honourable origins.
She is emotional and noisy, and has a presence wherever she is, but she merges into her surroundings quite easily.
Her ability is being able to fly, that is, being weightless.
The gravity of Earth, any level of stress, and threats of power all mean nothing to her.
Both her mind and body float in the sky of fantasy, a mysterious shrine maiden.
However powerful the opponent is, that means nothing in her presence.
As she evens out whatever status one has, she tends to attract anyone regardless of species, human or youkai.

Her weapons are amulets and a Yin-Yang orb. She is also preferred by mosquitoes.

Notes
She teams with Yukari this time.
Focused speed only applies when she is used as a solo character.
She lacks a bit in damage, but is quite easy to use and doesn't need much memorization.
She is quite strong, especially against smaller enemies.
In a word, dastardly.

As usual, the shrine maiden you all know. She lives in the Hakurei Shrine located at the boundary that separates Gensokyo from the outer world. The shrine simultaneously exists in both worlds.

She treats everyone fairly and equally, which makes her well-liked by even the most terrifying youkai. On the flip side, she does not anyone as a comrade. Since there are a great number of humans and youkai around her, there are instances where she works together with someone else, but even so, she usually does things by herself alone. She might just truly be a cold-hearted kind of human...

The morning that she was expecting to see after a full night's sleep did not greet her. She thought that something very strange was going on, so she left the shrine to investigate. It's not unusual for her to go out at night, but going out at midnight just after having taken a full night's rest was most unusual. Anyway, nights always make her sleepy, so she'll be going back to bed once the issue is resolved. She followed a trail of power into a bamboo forest, and what she found were very familiar faces...

The now-familiar shrine maiden of the Hakurei Shrine.

She treats everyone basically the same way. However, since her job is hunting youkai, she takes a fairly strict stance against youkai, but she's actually equally uninterested in humans and youkai.

This time there's a conspiracy surrounding her gods. She may be their spokesperson, but her circumstances as a youkai hunter are different, so she feels a bit lost.

Her weapons are amulets and yin-yang balls. Her piety seems light.

Her fighting style generally relies on equipment that lends a sense of stability.
