Tenkirin
Expand
Tenkirin (a Touhou LW original) refers to a ''weather wheel,'' a fictional construct or perhaps a type of weather that is presumably related to various religious and astronomical concepts. This is a telling temperament for the Mokou of this world, who was remade as a person of Hourai.

Mokou's temperament has been completely reconstructed. Her being has been reformed with multiple layers, just like her Legendary Mantle. This grants her perfect insulation through anti-entropy, which was thought to be impossible. (Strong against Fire Phase and Water Phase.)

However, her existence is reliant on a device created in the Age of the Gods―the moon. (Weak to Moon Essence.)

Character Shots

The Spread Shot of Fujiwara no Mokou, who has almost reached the end (a Touhou LW original). She prevents precious books from catching fire in this attack. The act of burning books is unforgivable. So anyone who attempts it should be punished with fire fueled by the information contained in the very books they tried to destroy! ...This attack is a manifestation of the bibliophiles' outrage.

The Focus Shot of Fujiwara no Mokou, who has almost reached the end (a Touhou LW original). She attacks by replicating the legendary Fire-Rat Robe magic item, which does the impossible in providing perfect thermal insulation. The new flames that Mokou obtained are easy to use, but they take a while to heat up, so she uses this robe to expedite the process. She can store heat under it to release scorching-hot flames at a moment's notice. The robe's insulation properties can also be used to mold the flames into any shape she desires.

A Spell Card of Fujiwara no Mokou, who has almost reached the end (a Touhou LW original). She reminisces about her time spent with Tewi and Kagerou. Mokou stopped fearing youkai when she became immortal, so the ancient youkai rabbits and the bloodthirsty man-eating wolf were more like neighbors to her than threats. Mokou lived in a house in the bamboo forest and spent her days helping anyone who wandered in. After a while, she realized how truly enjoyable that lifestyle was.

A Spell Card of Fujiwara no Mokou, who has almost reached the end (a Touhou LW original). She reminisces about her time spent with Reisen. Mokou didn't openly interact with Eientei, but she seems to have made an exception for Reisen. Mokou must have seen Reisen on her regular visits to the village to sell medicine, so it's natural to assume that they chatted. They are, in fact, friends.

The Last Word of Fujiwara no Mokou, who has almost reached the end (a Touhou LW original). She reminisces about the time when the world was set free once again. Who would have thought that the moon was a giant memory bank? But there is no observer more adept and ancient than the moon, that has looked toward the Earth since time immemorial.

It is impossible to store information perfectly for all eternity without it eroding. But perhaps the people of the moon, who created the Hourai Elixir, know of a way to make it possible. If so, Mokou's lost friends might still be hidden within the moon.

Character Ability

Capable of eternal youth and immortality (Lost)
Expand
The ability of Fujiwara no Mokou, who has almost reached the end (a Touhou LW original). Mokou completely lost this ability due to a Lost Word. She is currently regaining it little by little, though not through restoring or replicating her old ability, but with a newly constructed original ability that formed a core to build upon. She has continued to travel across worlds to try and end the Lost Word Incident.

The people of Hourai never die. So how could one's existence be erased? It sounds impossible when you first think about it, but you merely have to change your perspective. For example, take a book that features a perfect and unbeatable hero. If you tear the pages out and throw them away, that hero shall perish and be lost forever. That is what happened to Fujiwara no Mokou.

Mokou is one of the Restored. And it seems her immortality still comes from her nature as a person of Hourai, even after her restoration. However, the same cannot be said for her fire.

The origin of her fire is a total mystery. Does it come from a type of ninja youjutsu that she developed during her days as an avid youkai exterminator? And why fire instead of any other element? The only sure answers to these questions reside in Mokou's memory.

Fire is a symbol of human civilization. It is energy and plasma. This Mokou's fire is a manifestation of these concepts. Fire has always been fleeting, which is why there is deep meaning and symbolism behind passing a flame or torch from one person to another. And it seems that doesn't change even for an immortal who has ceased being human and no longer needs history. Even the light cast by fire couldn't shine within the perfect darkness, so she needed a new fire―a fire fueled by information. So she set her information, her old memories, alight.

Legendary Mantle: A portion of Tsuki no Iwakasa's (Iwakasa of the Moon's) will that materialized to watch over Mokou. His will took a form similar to how the Fire-Rat Robe is described in legends because Iwakasa held a position in court as the specialist in charge of handling the Emperor's strange tools and artifacts. Iwakasa's surname, ''Tsuki,'' can be written with the kanji character for ''investigate'' or for ''moon'' and can also mean ''to adjust and set something up.'' That's why his clan was charged with handling any magic items that came into the Emperor's possession... and disposing of any that were not required or too dangerous.

None of the five strange items spoken of in The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter were genuine magic items. Of course, Iwakasa never saw the authentic items either, but he possessed the most knowledge about them. In fact, Prince Ishitsukuri, Prince Kuramochi, Abe no Miushi, Ootomo no Miyuki, and Isonokami no Maro only gained information about each of the treasures they sought by talking to Tsuki no Iwakasa.

Ultimately, the Legendary Mantle became an almost indistinguishable replica of the Fire-Rat Robe with some unique structural modifications thanks to Kaguya Houraisan and Keine Kamishirasawa's abilities. They chose the Fire-Rat Robe because it is a hyperdimensional item that ignores the laws of entropy. Kaguya Houraisan used her ability to give tangible form to the principal-of-physics-breaking design, and Keine Kamishirasawa used her ability to adhere strata containing historical information between the layers of fabric to ''glue'' the garment together. It was designed this way to expand Mokou's memory as much as possible and maximize the amount of information fuel Mokou can use for attack and defense. This magic item is literally the history of the Earth given form and can only be wielded by a human who has lived for centuries. But there is one more requirement. To wear this mantle, you need to have sinned. Because this is the history of the Earth made manifest.

Story Card Recommendations

(Card recommendations last updated on December 29, 2022)

Spell Card

In order to make use of Mokou’s strengths, she requires multiple sources of Spirit P up. The Witch of Scarlet Dreams enables Mokou to access her anomaly breaks as soon as possible. Puppeteer and Necromancer works as a substantial damage boost for her Spell Card 1 and Last Word, as both are entirely comprised of Light Bullets. Worlds in Hand is more useful for Mokou’s Spell Card 2, enabling her to deal more Fire damage and boosting her Crit ATK.

Last Word

Silver Gale is undoubtedly Mokou’s best Story Card for dealing damage. Boosting Fire power by 50% and Light Bullet damage by 45%, it turns Mokou from a HEAL-type support to a one-hit wonder. Bonds of Blood is a close second in terms of Story Card recommendations. Similar to Silver Gale, it provides Mokou with the Fire power boost for her Last Word, but lacks the Light Bullet up. Puppeteer and Necromancer on the otherhand, is the opposite. Providing Light Bullet damage up but lacking in Fire power up.

Character Skill Level Up Recommendations

For Mokou, it is recommended to level up her 2nd skill, then 1st skill, then 3rd skill. Skill 2, Burning Evidence, provides party-wide power along with cleansing party binds. Both aspects will provide useful in all sorts of stages, even the most challenging ones. Skill 1, Fire Person of Hourai, provides party utility, such as healing and DEF up. Lastly, skill 3, Scorching Sin, is more of a self-skill, allowing her to recover her own health and barriers.

Character Strengths

Strong and widely accessible anomaly breaks

Paired with The Witch of Scarlet Dreams and her Skill 2, Burning Evidence, and with the right setup, Mokou is able to provide either herself or her team with an anomaly break every turn with her Spell Cards, along with her Spell Card effects providing massive amounts of team utility and enemy debuffs.

Good variety of party buffs

Mokou’s party buffs come from every which-where in her kit. Her Spell Cards provide the team with HP recovery and Yang DEF up, meanwhile her skills and passives allow her even more team HP recovery, even more Yang DEF up, bind and stat debuff dispels, Yang ATK up, and even Accuracy up. Aside from party Spirit P up, it seems there’s almost nothing Mokou can’t bring to the table.

Character Weaknesses

Elemental-type spread on her Spell Cards are very disjointed

Mokou’s Spell Cards are a bit of a mash-up of various elements. Her Spell Card 1 has an even mix of Moon and Star, meanwhile her Spell Card 2 has an even mix of Moon and Fire. In comparison to other characters, it would be ill-advised to use her as a primary source for breaks..

Inflexible with skill options

Mokou’s skills, while great on paper, can be difficult to use to their maximum potential. The biggest example of this would be her Skill 2, Burning Evidence. This one skill has party bind/stat debuff dispels, Yang ATK up, and own 2 Spirit P up. Hypothetically, if you were ever in a situation where you needed to dispel party binds but needed to save the Spirit P up or Yang ATK up and Mokou was one of your only options, this would be trouble as you are essentially having to use the other parts of her skill suboptimally.
