妖獣の中でも最もスタンダードで、かつそこそこ危険なのが化け猫である。

A ghost cat whose appearance and threat level are the most standard of the youkai beasts.

中でも橙は、八雲藍(後述)に使役されている式神(*1)でもある。

Even so, Chen is currently a shikigami (*1) in service to Ran Yakumo (see next article).

鋭い爪、牙と二本の長いしっぽを持つ典型的な化け猫である(*2)。

She is a fairly representative ghost cat with long claws and a long, forked tail(*2).

式神に憑かれている状態では、様々な妖術を使い、非常に危険であるが、水に弱い。

When possessed by the familiar spirit, she can use various black arts and is extremely dangerous, but has an extreme dislike of water.

水を被ると式神が外れて、素の化け猫になってしまう。

If she's doused in water, the familiar spirit leaves, and she becomes a normal phantom cat.

素の化け猫の状態では、さらに獣っぽくなり、噛みついたり引っ掻いたりと行動が肉体頼みになるが、やはり水に弱い。

When this happens, she'll become more feral and resort to more physical means such as biting and clawing, but she still hates water.

水を被ると行動が鈍る。

If you douse her again, her actions will become weaker.

式神状態でも素の化け猫でも、見た目に差はない。

She looks the same as a familiar spirit and as a ghost cat.

人語を解し、特に式神が憑いている時は妖術を使うなど賢そうにみえるが、実際はその辺の人間の子供程度の智慧しか持っていない。

She's capable of human speech, and uses various mystic arts when possessed that make her appear quite capable, but in reality she possesses the intellect of a human child about the age she appears.

普段は妖怪の山に棲み、事ある毎に人里に降りてきて人間を襲う。

She spends most of her time on the Youkai Mountain, and occasionally comes down to the human village to attack people.

ただ、八雲藍の式神となっている時は八雲藍や八雲紫と行動を共にする事もあるという。

However, it's said she follows the will of Ran Yakumo and Yukari Yakumo when she's possessed by the familiar.

目撃報告例

Eyewitness reports

・炬燵の中に大きな猫が居た。人間ぐらいの背丈があった、いやほんと(匿名)

"A huge cat was sitting inside the kotatsu.It was about as big as a person. No, really!" (Anonymous)

冬の猫は炬燵で丸くなる。

Cats grow fat laying in kotatsu in the winter.

・うちの裏で猫達が集会をやっていた。水をまいたら逃げていった(匿名)

"A bunch of cats were gathered together behind our house. We splashed water at them, and they ran off." (Anonymous)

猫は人目を盗んで定期的に集会を行っているらしい。

It looks like the cats assemble regularly when people aren't watching.

そういう時のリーダーが、こういった化け猫である。

It appears that the leader of these assemblies is this cat.

・家の柱が傷んでいる時がある、これはやはり化け猫の仕業か(匿名)

"Sometimes the pillars on our house are all scratched up. I bet it's because of this ghost cat." (Anonymous)

爪研ぎの可能性もあるが、化け猫クラスになると、爪切りに鋏などを使うらしい。

She might be sharpening her claws, but a phantom of her class would probably just use nail clippers or scissors.

対策

Countermeasures

化け猫はすばしっこく、力も強い。

Ghost cats are very nimble, and they're also quite strong.

まともに対峙すると逃げる事すら難しいだろう。

If she faced you seriously in a fight, even running away would be difficult.

ただし、弱点は多い。

However, she has many weaknesses.

まず水に弱い。

For example, she hates water.

雨の日は活発に動かないし、河の中まで逃げ込んでしまえばもう追ってこないだろう。

She won't go out if it's raining, and if you run out to the middle of a river, she probably wouldn't follow you.

次にマタタビに弱い。

She's also weak against catnip.

乾燥したマタタビを蒔くと、たちまち戦意喪失である。

If you sprinkle some dried catnip around, she'll quickly lose all interest in fighting.

獣道を歩く時は、用心に少量でも良いのでマタタビを持ち歩くと良いだろう。

It's probably best to keep some dried catnip with you if you have to walk down animal trails.

この妖怪が使う妖術は、速さやトリッキーな動きで見る者を惑わす術である。

The types of magic she uses focus on using speed and tricky movements to confuse her opponents.

視界の左に消えたと思ったら右から出てくる。

For example, if you think you see her dash off to the left, she'll attack from the right.

これは動きの速さと正確さを利用した術であり、手品に近い術である(*3)。

This is a technique that relies on speed and precision of movement, so it's very similar to sleight of hand(*3).

*1 式神とは種族ではなく、妖怪の上に被さるソフトの事である。そのソフトで動いている事を、ここでは憑かれていると書く。

1: Shikigami aren't a particular class of youkai, but is more like a status condition. When this condition is in effect, we write that here as being "possessed".

*2 肉球は不明。

2: It's unknown whether she has paws.

*3 一定の速度で左に移動している時に、一瞬高速で右に移動すると人間は見失う。そうすると瞬間移動した様に見える。

3: When she starts moving to the left, and then returns to the right at high speed, she moves so quickly humans lose sight of her, which makes it appear to be instant teleportation.
