Temperament: Karakaze

Karakaze (a Touhou LW original) refers to a dry wind. This is an apt temperament for Parsee, who is rumored to have a connection with a certain foreign country with dry weather. Parsee is endowed with Water Phase, as a hashihime, and Sun Essence, as she embraces her own nature.

Ability: Capable of manipulating jealousy

The ability of Parsee Mizuhashi as a hashihime. Parsee can apparently invoke feelings of jealousy and envy and then turn them into her own power. Envy is an emotion that curses others who are in a better situation than yourself. The standard of happiness varies from person to person, so envy is an emotion that anyone can feel. Many teachings consider this emotion a sin, and it has been considered a classic emotion in the history of humankind. That is why anger and resentment caused by jealousy are considered to be closely related to the demonic nature of youkai and monsters. It is said that Parsee may have made full use of this ability to survive in the Underworld, which is a much harsher environment than the surface. Since envy is one of the primary emotions that make up vengeful spirits, one can imagine that Parsee's ability is useful for both offense and defense. However, she doesn't usually use this ability against humans. It is no exaggeration to say that she has one of the most complex and delicate mental structures among youkai. Since hashihime are sometimes worshipped as water gods, she may be more than a mere youkai. The ''Shrine Visits in the Dead of Night'' is a curse and a ritual performed to wish harm upon a person you resent. It is often interpreted as an occult ritual that uses straw dolls, but it is also similar to onmyoudou rituals that use shikigami. Hashihime may be related to the girls who were used as human sacrifices in the past to calm a river's flooding, which makes them similar to shrine maidens.

Attacks

Caina Hell

Parsee Mizuhashi's Spread Shot (a Touhou LW original). She shoots lots of ice nails in this attack. According to the teachings of a foreign country in the west, those who commit the sin of treachery are said to be sent to an ice Hell of extreme cold. An icy Hell sounds more painful than a burning one...!

Bullets
  • Resentment Ice Nail
  • Sorrow Ice Nail
  • Grief Ice Nail
  • Pain Ice Nail
  • Jealousy Ice Nail
  • Envy Ice Nail
Uji Bridge Burning

Parsee Mizuhashi's Focus Shot (a Touhou LW original). An attack that knocks her target over by destroying the bridge they stand on. Building bridges over rivers has been an important business since long ago, and when someone builds a bridge, they pray to a water god. Bridges are also structures that allow people to cross boundaries, establishing communication with the other side of a river. The reason why gods who protect bridges can also offer blessings to cut unwanted ties with people (burn bridges) may be related to such ancient beliefs and views.

Bullets
  • Girder Bridge Split
  • Suspension Bridge Split
  • Arch Bridge Split
  • Truss Bridge Split
  • Cable-Stayed Bridge Split
  • Rigid-Frame Bridge Split
Jealousy Sign: Green-Eyed Monster

Parsee Mizuhashi's Spell Card. An attack where she shoots green lights shaped like eyes. A playwright from the west is said to have described jealousy as the green-eyed monster. This probably resulted in the term ''green-eyed'' becoming synonymous with jealousy. Monsters are always lurking in our hearts.

Bullets
  • Green-Eyed Small Monster
  • Green-Eyed Monster
  • Green-Eyed Demon
  • Green-Eyed Devil
  • Green-Eyed Great Monster
  • Green-Eyed Envy Dragon
Malice Sign: Day 7 of the Shrine Visits in the Dead of Night

Parsee Mizuhashi's Spell Card. She shoots long nails in this attack. Although, it is more like she hammers the nails rather than shoots them. This may be the right way to get rid of a grudge. Visiting a shrine at the Hour of the Ox (between 1-3 A.M.) to hammer long nails into a straw doll multiple nights in a row is a well-known curse ritual in Japan, but few people know how to perform it correctly. Even if you do happen to learn it, you should never perform this ritual unless you want to become an oni yourself. Curses, like chickens, come home to roost.

Bullets
  • White Clothes of Resentment
  • Tall Single-Tooth Geta
  • Upturned Trivet With Three Candles
  • Face Painted White
  • Hanging Mirror
  • Hair Shaped Into Five Horns
Higekiri to Onigiri

Parsee Mizuhashi's Last Word (a Touhou LW original). This attack replicates a legendary sword that supposedly cut off the hashihime of Uji's arm. It is believed that the sword was originally named Higekiri, but the name was later changed to Onimaru, Shishinoko, Tomogiri, and back to Onimaru again. This sword is a pair to Hizamaru (also called Kumogiri, Hoemaru, and Usumidori). They are like friends and brothers. Perhaps due to the influence of a certain ancient piece of literature, this sword is often thought to be the same sword as Onikiri (also called Onikirimaru or Onikiri-Yasutsuna).

Bullets
  • Higekiri Slash
  • Onikiri Slash
  • Shishinoko Slash
  • Tomogiri Slash
  • Refined Onikiri Slash
  • Onikiri-Yasutsuna Slash
