Maid of the Scarlet Devil Mansion (Cherry Blossom: Time)
Voice Lines
Temperament: Yukimoyoi

Yukimoyoi (a Touhou LW original) refers to weather where snow could start falling at any moment. This is an apt temperament for Sakuya, who must reclaim spring for the Scarlet Devil Mansion. Sakuya is endowed with Metal Phase, due to her skills with knives, and with Moon Essence, as a vampire's servant.

Ability: Mainly capable of manipulating time

The ability of Sakuya Izayoi from the world with a never-ending winter (a Touhou LW original). It is essentially the same as our version of Sakuya's ability. However, despite having this ability, this world's Sakuya is yet to resolve the Spring Snow Incident. The Scarlet Devil Mansion has been shut off from the rest of Gensokyo by heavy snowfall. They can probably overcome their lack of fuel through magic, but there's no easy replacement for food. If worst comes to worst, the mistress might end up causing an incident again out of sheer hunger. If that happens, Gensokyo might never be the same again. Although, in saying that, it's still yet to be seen whether Gensokyo can recover from this single prolonged incident. Sakuya is a master of illusions and stage magic that utilize tricks and gimmicks. She can perform almost any kind of magic trick thanks to her ability to manipulate time. However, her mistress's face remains impassive, as if frozen by the chill winter wind, when Sakuya performs them for her. This is obviously because she's aware of Sakuya's ability, taking away all the fun and mystique. But perhaps these tricks will work on the one who prolonged this incident. She'll have to creatively utilize her magic tricks to bring an end to her repeated forays. During Sakuya's countless excursions to bring an end to this incident, she came to the sudden realization that prolonging winter for eternity might be possible for someone who can manipulate time. Sakuya's Time Sign loadout features domain-themed bombs and attacks that involve throwing knives and manipulating their trajectory. You can tell that she is confident in her skills by the way she seamlessly moves at high speed while controlling her knives. But Sakuya complains that maintaining the intense concentration required for these techniques is exhausting... There's only one way to see if another loadout would be more effective, and that's to try it for real. Then again, perhaps using the attacks she's used to is still her best bet...


Misdirection (Cherry Blossom)

The Spread Shot of Sakuya Izayoi from the world with a never-ending winter. In true maid fashion, she fires knives and can somewhat direct them to the left or right. Misdirecting the audience's attention is the cornerstone of all magic tricks. Even if you try to focus, it's hard not to fall for an optical illusion that preys on your instincts. For example, even if the text in a sentecne is silghtly jumlbed, you can still read it no problem. Your eyes don't pick up on as much as you might think.

Power Direction (Cherry Blossom)

The Focus Shot of Sakuya Izayoi from the world with a never-ending winter. In true maid fashion, she throws knives that fly in a set direction. Directing where the audience looks is a fundamental technique of magic tricks. For example, when a magician makes a dove appear, it distracts the audience and lets them set up another trick. When something shocking happens, it steals the audience's attention and makes them blind to all else. Similar techniques are also used to commit crimes and in military operations. It's all about manipulating information and controlling your opponent's state of mind.

Time Sign: Perfect Square

A Spell Card of Sakuya Izayoi from the world with a never-ending winter. She stops time over a wide area. Sakuya's ability is simple yet also terrifying. She can speed up, slow down, and stop time. And she's the only one who can act normally during this altered time. It's not known whether there are any limits to her power, but one has to question why she doesn't abuse it to do whatever she wants.

Time Sign: Private Square

A Spell Card of Sakuya Izayoi from the world with a never-ending winter. She manipulates time within a fixed area. Thinking about it, the only people who could genuinely pose a threat to Sakuya are those whom time has no power over. However, most creatures, be they human or youkai, value their time and are generally ruled by it. Some notable exceptions would be Remilia, who meddles with fate; Yukari Yakumo, who interferes with the laws of nature; and Kaguya, who manipulates eternity and the instantaneous. Although, not much is really known about Kaguya's ability... This maid seems much too powerful to be a simple human.

Magical Circus Chance Time

The Last Word of Sakuya Izayoi from the world with a never-ending winter (a Touhou LW original). She throws knives imbued with spring temperament. Sakuya can manipulate time to perform a spectacularly over-the-top magic trick all on her own. This trick is so complex it looks as if an entire circus troupe is performing autonomously. If she precisely and accurately shoots her meticulously prepared bullets, she can surely stop Yuyuko as well as the mastermind who prolonged the incident. And then she can finally warm up her freezing cold mistress. For this trick, Sakuya is accompanied by mysterious purple balls marked with stars that also throw knives. Gather around everyone! The magical circus act is about to begin! ...But really, what are those ball things?
