Youkai of Dusk (Scarlet)

The usual outfit of Rumia from the world shrouded in scarlet mist. Being in darkness has kept her clothes from being stained red.

Youkai of Dusk (Scarlet)
Voice Lines
Temperament: Yuyami

Yuyami (a Touhou LW original) refers to the time between the sun setting and the moon rising. This is an apt temperament for Rumia, a youkai capable of manipulating darkness. Rumia is endowed with Water Phase, the element of darkness, and Moon Essence, representing the night. The flexible and patient Water Phase resists Metal Phase, because metal collects water, but it is weak to Earth Phase, because earth directs water. The cooperative and indecisive Moon Essence resists the alluring and arrogant Sun Essence, but it is weak to the diverse and uncooperative Star Essence.

Ability: Capable of manipulating darkness

The ability of Rumia from the world shrouded in scarlet mist (a Touhou LW original). It is essentially the same as our version of Rumia's ability. As a result of this ability, a veil of night surrounds Rumia. The Scarlet Mist Incident should not have taken long to resolve, but in this world, it persists, much to the benefit of Rumia. With all of Gensokyo shrouded in mist, the days are no longer bright, reducing the amount of magical power Rumia needs to use to spread darkness. If she had her way, perhaps this Rumia would want a world entirely encapsulated by darkness. The red ribbon she wears is an ofuda, and she can't remove it herself, even if she might want to. Could it be sealing off some power of hers...? Manipulating darkness is a powerful ability and surely holds many a great secret. However, Rumia is laid back and seems to have no intention of using her ability to its full potential, which is perhaps a rather typical attitude for one of Gensokyo's youkai. During the Vampire Incident, many youkai were said to have joined with the vampires. Rumia couldn't have been on of them... could she?



The Spread Shot of Rumia from the world shrouded in scarlet mist (a Touhou LW original). In this attack, a veil of darkness descends upon her enemies. Youkai own the night, but there are some who are most active around twilight. Even if someone's outline can be seen at this time, they cannot be identified. Over time, the Japanese phrase for "Who goes there?" morphed into the word "tasogare," meaning twilight. Youkai that transform into humans, youkai that abduct humans―twilight is the time of those who stand atop the border between youkai and humans.

Crepuscular Rays

The Focus Shot of Rumia from the world shrouded in scarlet mist (a Touhou LW original). She attacks from below with a burst of light. The contrast formed by intertwining darkness and light appears as both heavenly and unnerving. Crepuscular Rays, also known as Rembrandt Rays, were described by a certain writer as a pipe organ of lights.

Moon Sign: Moonlight Ray

A Spell Card of Rumia from the world shrouded in scarlet mist. She attacks with moonlight laser beams. Moonlight is said to contain magical power. This could mean the moon is the source of all magical power, similar to the way the sun nurtures all life. It's thought that moonlight is nothing more than reflected sunlight, but if moonlight contains magical power where sunlight does not, then surely there's someone interfering.

Darkness Sign: Demarcation

A Spell Card of Rumia from the world shrouded in scarlet mist. This attack divides the world into darkness and light. Light is the absence of darkness, and darkness is the absence of light... is a common misconception. In the boundary between light and darkness, infinite shades of gray exist. Furthermore, while perfect darkness (a total lack of light) can exist, perfect light (a total lack of darkness) is difficult to achieve. That's because filling a space completely with light is nearly impossible. At least a little darkness persists no matter where you are. It's, therefore, difficult to define the boundary between light and darkness when you stand in the light.

Maroon-Night Devouring

The Last Word of Rumia from the world shrouded in scarlet mist (a Touhou LW original). She envelops her enemies in scarlet darkness. A pure-scarlet mist has enshrouded this Gensokyo. The days are dark, and the nights darker still. Rumia has found her paradise―with little to no effort, the world is constantly dark. By adding her darkness to the scarlet mist, a blackish-red shade spreads forth. It's the color of rust, the color of chestnuts from foreign lands... and the color of spilled blood gone stale.
