The Most-Despicable and Disastrous Elder Twin Sister
Voice Lines
Temperament: Anun

Anun (a Touhou LW original) refers to dark clouds that block sunlight and omens that indicate something bad will happen in the future. An apt temperament for Shion, the most-despicable and disastrous older twin sister. Shion is endowed with Wood Phase, an element that doesn't seem like it would attract much money, and Moon Essence, with her hidden passion and determination.

Ability: Capable of making people unlucky, including herself

She causes misfortune for herself and all those near her. It seems that Shion cannot control this ability, so she and people close by are always affected. Furthermore, when Shion gets angry, she casts an overwhelming aura of negative energy that causes misfortune for herself and everyone else. This misfortune is not just limited to financial luck, as it also negatively affects the luck involved in contests and battles. The twins used this to try and achieve their ambition, thus causing an incident. Due to this piteous ability, Shion was housed at Hakurei Shrine for a time after the incident was resolved, as the shrine's financial luck could not possibly get any worse. The saving grace for Shion was her meeting with a certain celestial who is seemingly immune to her aura of negativity due to exceptional innate good luck.


Poverty Aura

Shion Yorigami's Spread Shot (a Touhou LW original). She attacks by unleashing an ominous aura of low-income and massive debts. Shion's ability makes herself unlucky, along with everyone around her. So while this attack may be devastating for her opponents, it is just as bad for her.

  • Aura of Misfortune
  • Aura of Hunger
  • Aura of Poverty
  • Aura of Bad Luck
  • Aura of Defeat
  • Aura of Calamity
Impoverished Tackle

Shion Yorigami's Focus Shot (a Touhou LW original). Perhaps her only recourse is to use herself as a bullet since she is starving with no money or possessions... Regardless, this seems to be a rather effective attack.

  • Bill Payments
  • Distraint Payments
  • Interest Payments
  • Overdue Payments
  • Installment Payments
  • Arrears
Poor Sign: Super Poverty Bomb

Shion Yorigami's Spell Card. She gathers the surrounding negative energy and conducts it into a massive bullet, which she then launches at her target. Most likely, the more energy she gathers, the larger the bullet becomes. This could quite possibly be one of the most devastating Spell Cards, as the world is never short on misfortune.

  • Destitution
  • Resentment
  • Jealousy
  • Terrible Bad Luck
  • Despondency
  • Sense of Loss
Mischance Scatter

Shion Yorigami's Spell Card. She buries her targets in a hail of bullets in the shape of ominous kanji characters. It looks like she is attacking with the characters themselves. Perhaps they are a form of kotodama - spirits that dwell within words...

  • Poverty
  • Calamity
  • Misfortune
  • Failure
  • Debt
  • Loss
The Lost 20 Years

Shion Yorigami's Last Word (a Touhou LW original). This attack causes a financial collapse with losses of over a hundred million yen on a nationwide scale. Some say it was just bad luck, but perhaps it was inevitable. A wave once formed must come crashing down, and stacked stones will eventually topple. The fallout from this collapse led to an extremely long period of economic stagnation.
