Sealed Great Magician
Voice Lines
Temperament: Kasagumo

Kasagumo (a Touhou LW original) refers to clouds shaped like conical bamboo hats that form at the peaks of tall mountains. This temperament is a good representation of Byakuren, who was sealed in Makai by humans. Byakuren is endowed with Fire Phase, from her burning devotion, and Sun Essence, from the way she disciplines herself and others in the name of Buddha.

Ability: Capable of using magic (specializing in increasing physical ability)

Byakuren Hijiri's ability as a magician. It can be inferred that her ability is similar to Marisa's and other magicians', but she is no regular magic user. She is powerful enough to be called the Great Magician and her specialization in magic that increases physical ability is unusual as well. In the first place, Byakuren's magic seems closely related to the persecution she received from humans for protecting youkai while on the path of Buddha. It also seems connected to the background that led her to be a magician. She began to fear death after her brother died, so she sought immortality through becoming a magician. This magic has led her off the path of Buddha... Perhaps that is the meaning of her magic. The humans who used to fear her must have felt betrayed by the nun since she was protecting youkai, who are known for attacking humans. It would be very difficult even for a person of Byakuren's character to create a world where humans and youkai can live together harmoniously.

Attacks

Sorcerer's Sutra Scroll

Byakuren Hijiri's Spread Shot (a Touhou LW original). She uses an incantation to momentarily increase the strength of her body and then attacks her opponent. The mysterious sutra scroll she often carries was one she created herself with materials from Makai and is said to have the characteristics of a creature from Makai.

Heaven Sign: Brilliance of Mahavairocana

Byakuren Hijiri's Spell Card. This bullet hell attack recreates the radiance of Mahavairocana. Mahavairocana is the name of a celestial buddha that was once syncretized with Amaterasu, the Japanese goddess of the sun. To put it in more modern terms, you could also say that the Mahavairocana was cosplaying as Amaterasu...

Angirasa Veda

Byakuren Hijiri's Last Word. This barrage of bullets lets out all her protective magic in a burst. The Angirasa Veda refers to an old religious text from a certain country and is said to be filled with incantations specialized in attack. Stories of those on the path of Buddha often speak of fighting to protect others, making this a perfect text for Byakuren.
