Temperament: Naga-ame

Naga-ame (a Touhou LW original) refers to rainfall that lasts for a long time. When it rains for days on end, it is the perfect time to read books, which makes this temperament a good fit for the face of the Suzunaan book rental shop. Kosuzu is endowed with Wood Phase, as she works in a bookstore, and Star Essence, with her highly curious personality.

Ability: Capable of reading any language

Kosuzu Motoori is capable of reading any language, even languages used by youkai, as long as the text is made up of symbols that can be perceived as letters or characters. Consequently she can read any and all demon books. There seems to be no limit to the type or amount of languages that she can read. She has been seen reading a demon book written in the ancient tengu language and Suzunaan deals with handwritten copies of magic books from the outside. However, even if the symbols on a text are in fact letters, Kosuzu can only read it if she herself recognises that these symbols are a form of letters or characters. Her ability appears to still be evolving as she has gained the capability to sense the aura of books. This may or may not be related to Kosuzu's ability, but in the outside world there is a peculiar theory that recorded information could be transformed into energy. If this is true, it may mean that every book is imbued with some sort of magic...

Attacks

Chopstick Tsukumogami

Kosuzu Motoori's Spread Shot (a Touhou LW original). She uses her Privately Published Night Parade Scroll to turn chopsticks into tsukumogami and attack with them. Kosuzu doesn't know much about tsukumogami, which are tools that move on their own, but she thinks they look cute.

Bullets
  • Tapered Chopsticks
  • Non-Tapered Chopsticks
  • Green Bamboo Chopsticks
  • Kuromoji Chopsticks
  • Round Disposable Chopsticks

Evil Dragon Print

Kosuzu Motoori's Focus Shot (a Touhou LW original). An attack that summons the shadow of an evil young dragon. Although it's small, a dragon is still a dragon and should not be underestimated. It seems that a fair amount of magic is contained within this print.

  • Gratitude
  • Sealed Aura
  • Print Ink
  • Sealed Aura
  • Dragon's Gratitude
Flying Book: The 6th Vision of Zechariah

Kosuzu Motoori's Spell Card (a Touhou LW original). She attacks by riding on a mysterious flying demon book. Kosuzu is able to fly because she takes this book wherever she goes.

  • Unusual Vision
  • Flying Megillah
  • Vision of Fantasy

Original Text: Hotsuma Tsutae

Kosuzu Motoori's Spell Card (a Touhou LW original). She unleashes this attack by borrowing the power stored in a mysterious history book. Opinion is divided on whether this document, written with mysterious characters that are said to have been used in ancient Japan, can actually be called a history book or not. Nevertheless, it is most definitely a document that borders the line between fantasy and reality.

Privately Published Night Parade Scroll - Final Chapter Annex

Kosuzu Motoori's Last Word (a Touhou LW original). This attack summons the shadow of an extremely large tsukumogami. Kosuzu barely remembers anything of the time when she was possessed by this particular tsukumogami. Mamizou was apparently the one who returned this scroll to her, though it is unclear whether this is the original or an exquisitely crafted forgery...
