Stage 3 Boss: The Guardian Beast Devoted to Shintoism and Buddhism
Ability: Capable of locating Shintoism and Buddhism
A komainu. She's a single individual with the properties of both a shisa and a komainu.
She finds places where human faith gathers, like the Hakurei Shrine, Moriya Shrine, Myouren Temple and so on, then mooches around and guards the place without being asked.
She normally doesn't show herself, and is said to only show off her full power when something with hostile intent appears, but she's not very strong and usually loses anyway.
Since the Hakurei Shrine's cherry blossoms were so beautiful, she was having a flower-viewing at the shrine when the commotion began.
She had intended to leisurely sit around drinking sake, but somehow or another she wound up bearing the brunt of the ensuing battle.
She was somewhat disappointed to find herself fighting a shrine maiden, but it was somehow fun.
She found a strange, bottomless spiritual power welling up in her heart, and felt something cold running down her back.
Though she didn't know where or what it was, she sensed that something deeply important was being deliberately concealed in Gensokyo.
