長い間、自分自身に呪いをかけて眠っていた古代人である。一旦死ぬ事で輪廻転生の輪から外れる、という方法で不老不死の仙人を目指している。実際にはそう上手く行くはずもなく、やはり死神に目を付けられているそうだ。

A person from ancient times who put herself to sleep for a very long time with a curse. By dying for just a moment, she's escaped the cycle of reincarnation and become an eternally youthful immortal with her eyes on becoming a hermit. In truth though, it hasn't gone quite so well and she is being watched on by shinigami.

同じ手段で現代に生きる豊聡耳神子に比べて幻想郷に馴染めていなく、順応性が低いと思われる。それは過去の彼女を見ても窺うことが出来る。生前(?)も、大陸から来た仏教に馴染めず、古来から信仰されていた神道に近い道教にすがったのだ。現在も豊聡耳神子に仕えると共に、道教を信仰している、筈だが、行っている術や格好は、まだ何か中途半端に過去の遺物を引きずっているようである。だがしかし、それが彼女の持ち味とも言える。

Unlike Toyosatomimi no Miko who arrived in Gensokyo in the same way, she has been unable to adapt to modern times. So if you see an old-fashioned looking girl you can guess it's her. Back when she was alive(?), when Buddhism from the continent was not fully blended into society, she switched from the ancient ways of Shinto to the similar Taoism. She intends to serve Toyosatomimi no Miko even in the modern era, and to practice Taoism together, but from the way she looks and acts it's more like she's a half-finished ancient relic being dragged around on display. Well, that's part of her charm.

能力は申し訳程度に風水に関係する物、という言い方をしている(*1)が、彼女のそれは自然信仰という意味で神道のそれと余り変わらない。道教の勉強をする前から身に付けていたものを、そのまま今の能力としている。その為、何処か古くさいのに伝統の重みを感じない。

Her power has something to do with Feng Shui, or so it is said(*1), but because of the similarities in terms of nature worship, it looks exactly like Shinto. She kept everything from before she studied Taoism, so her current power is unchanged from then. For that reason, even though it seems hackneyed and trite, you also can't feel any of the traditional dignity.

性格は温厚なのだが、考え方も古代のまま変化していないのか普通の人間とは完全にずれており、その点に置いては仙人らしい風格を持っているとも言える。

Her personality is gentle, but because her way of thinking is unchanged from ancient times, she's completely out of sync with normal people. At least on that point you can say she's hermit-like.

現在は豊聡耳神子と行動を共にしたり、独自に修行(*2)に励んでいるという。

She acts together with Toyosatomimi no Miko, and sometimes she does training by herself(*2)


尸解仙

Shikaisen

仙人の一番の大仕事は、寿命と戦う事である。死神との争いという形になる事が多いが、それは容易な事では無い。仙人とは、人間以上に死なないよう努力し続ける種族だとも言える。

The most important job of being a hermit has to be fighting against the limited human life span. This often becomes fights against the shinigami, and it's really not that easy. Hermits are a species who make continuous efforts to achieve immortality.

そんな中でも、尸解仙は既に死んだ者として振る舞い、寿命から逃れようとする仙人である。

Among them, shikaisen are hermits who use resurrection as a way to escape the life limit.

尸解仙になる方法は様々であるが、彼女が行った方法は「肉体を完全に捨てて、何かの物体に魂を宿らせる。然るべき時が来たらその物体が自分の姿になり、代わりに屍は物体へと変化する」という物らしい。彼女が使った物体はお皿だそうだ(*3)。

There are many ways to become a shikaisen, it seems she used the "completely abandoning the body, transferring the soul onto some object. When the time comes, that object will change into her, and her corpse will change into that object." method. The object she used seems to be a plate. (*3)

実は復活する際に肉体を捨てているので、ある程度自由な姿に変化できるのだが、多くの尸解仙は元に近い姿を取るのだという。それはある程度自分の姿に愛着を持っていたり、他の人に認識してもらう為である。彼女もそんな感じで古風な姿をしているが、豊聡耳神子は現代に合わせた姿に変えたそうだ。

Since they have already abandoned their body and flesh when they are resurrected, there is some degree of freedom to the forms they can take on; but most shikaisen will choose to look similar to their old appearances. This is because their attachment to their looks, as well as so others can recognize them. For this reason she has this old-fashioned look, while Miko changed to a more modern look.


対処法

How to Deal With

本人はただ修行し、自分の力が増していく事が楽しいだけの様だ。人間に敵対心は無さそうに見える。恐れる事は無いだろう。

It seems like she just enjoys training and strengthening her power. She does not seem to have any hostility against humans. There really shouldn't be any need to be scared of her.

逆に妖怪に対しては理由無しに敵対心を持っている様である。おそらく、幻想郷のルールに馴染めず、人間が妖怪に怯えていた頃の記憶で動いているのだろう。その為、彼女の周りには争いが絶えないようだ。

On the other hand however, she seems to be hostile against youkai for no real reason. Perhaps it's because of that, being unable to adapt to the ways of Gensokyo, she subconsciously acts on her fear for youkai she had from the time she was still a human. It is because of this, fighting has never stopped around her.

人間を妖怪から助けてくれる事もあるが、彼女の周りには必要では無い争いが多く、どちらかというと迷惑である。近くに居ない方が賢明だ。

Although she will save humans from youkai, she already has lots of unnecessary conflicts around her, all of which are very annoying. So it's probably best to stay away from her.
