Lakeside Poltergeist Ensemble (Scarlet)
The usual outfit of Lyrica from the world shrouded in scarlet mist. It features an elegant dress and a keyboard.
Chuuritsugata Heisoku Zensen (a Touhou LW original) refers to occlusion fronts that are neither warm occlusions nor cold occlusions. This is an apt temperament for Lyrica since she harmonizes the ensemble's music. Lyrica is endowed with Earth Phase, the element of stability, and Star Essence, symbolizing her creative freedom.The encompassing and regenerative Earth Phase resists Fire Phase, because fire produces earth, but it is weak to Wood Phase, because wood parts earth.The diverse and uncooperative Star Essence resists the cooperative and indecisive Moon Essence, but it is weak to the charming and arrogant Sun Essence.
The ability of Lyrica Prismriver from the world shrouded in scarlet mist (a Touhou LW original). It is essentially the same as our version of Lyrica's ability. As of yet, there aren't any reliable records of the Prismriver Sisters doing anything significant around the time of the Scarlet Mist Incident. It is assumed that the sisters of this world performed their own investigations into the incident. However, some people doubt that they even exist at all. Of course, this isn't all that unusual since Gensokyo is built upon the absurdity stemming from the fictitious nature of all youkai, apparitions, and spirits.Perhaps similar to Lyrica in other worlds, this world's Lyrica is the smartest of the three poltergeist sisters. Her smarts usually get her in trouble, but they actually helped her in this one instance. She was able to understand what the Youkai Sage, Yukari Yakumo, was talking about.As someone who loves to harmonize music, Lyrica has always wondered where harmony ultimately stems from. To create highly ordered harmony in a localized area, you must dislocate the forces antithetical to harmony, such as disharmony, dissonance, and chaos. If you don't, they will simply eat away at the order you created and invite more chaos to seep in from surrounding areas. This is what makes composing and arranging songs so difficult. The world will invariably skew toward chaos if left to its own devices. That's why it's so hard to pinpoint where harmony comes from. Rain descending from the heavens can cause ripples on a lake, but making ripples will never cause water to shoot back up into the heavens. Lyrica's instincts told her this would instead cause rain to fall somewhere else―somewhere close but not easily accessible. That is why she instinctually believed that Yukari Yakumo's hypothesis was correct―her hypothesis that neighboring worlds are connected by continuous waves that can be interpreted as music. And this is also why she was sure that Yukari couldn't possibly be the mastermind.Lyrica thought back to what first spurred these thoughts and questions inside her. They originated from a bedtime story she used to tell every night after happily performing with everyone in front of the fireplace. The story wasn't based on logic or common tropes in literature. It was simply a prayer for how she wanted things to be. A white lie she told the old and weary Layla Prismriver to help her sleep.
The Spread Shot of Lyrica Prismriver from the world shrouded in scarlet mist. She shoots illusionary sounds from her keyboard spirit. If you thought only living creatures could become phantoms, you might be surprised to hear that instruments, like Lyrica's keyboard, can become phantoms, too. This is possible because the definition of what is alive was much different in the past. People believed everything had a soul, even rocks, water, and wind.
The Focus Shot of Lyrica Prismriver from the world shrouded in scarlet mist. She creates stereotypical poltergeist noises in this attack. At times, sounds can be much more terrifying than visual stimuli. Humans are particularly susceptible to auditory illusions because our sense of hearing is less advanced than our vision. Hearing a mundane noise in a pitch-black room is all that's needed for us to imagine all sorts of unfathomable horrors.

It is said that Spell Cards are a kind of contract. If you interpret this literally to mean that Spell Cards exist as paper documents, you may find it strange that sounds can be recorded on them. While music can be written down with various forms of musical notation or even stored digitally by converting these notations to binary code... such methods can never provide the full picture. If you wanted a perfect replica of a sound, you would have to record it as it happens.
A Spell Card of Lyrica Prismriver from the world shrouded in scarlet mist (a Touhou LW original). This attack will later become ''Noise Sign: Soul Noise Flow.'' The only thing separating dreams from illusions is your level of consciousness. However, unless a guide appears in your dream or illusion to enlighten you, it's impossible to tell whether you are asleep or awake until the experience ends... Then again, there's no guarantee that the guide will speak the truth.
The Last Word of Lyrica Prismriver from the world shrouded in scarlet mist (a Touhou LW original). This attack will later become ''Noisy Sign: Live Poltergeist.'' This world's Lyrica has a poor view of anyone who would prolong an incident. As someone whose life work is harmonizing music, she is keenly aware that aesthetic beauty relies on harmony formed through cycles, balance, and waves. The world is a big place, so while there might be something that's eternally beautiful, generally speaking, beauty goes hand in hand with impermanence. Imperfection makes things beautiful, like how battles of bullets are aesthetically pleasing because the bullets can be dodged... Lyrica knows this also applies to music, which is why she thinks the mastermind behind this prolonged incident is both ignorant and uncultured.
The rapid back and forth of a distant noise invokes a sense of unease.
Breaking up chords by playing each note individually makes songs sound happy and flamboyant.
This technique changes a step-by-step progression into a seamless glide between notes. It makes one question whether music is discrete or continuous.
