Toppuu
Expand
Toppuu (a Touhou LW original) refers to a sudden gust of strong wind. This is an apt temperament for Rin since she's a kasha, a type of youkai that steals away corpses in the blink of an eye. Having lived in the Underworld for so long, her temperament has lost connection to the natural order of the Five Phases.

Unlike the Orin of our world, this Orin has never had the chance to bathe in the sunlight of the surface. As a result, she rejects all of the sky's lights (Sun Essence, Moon Essence, and Star Essence).

Furthermore, since part of her work in the Underworld involves managing the spiritual cycle, she is weak against the unchanging Metal Phase.

Character Shots

The Spread Shot of Rin Kaenbyou from the buried city (a Touhou LW original). She charges forward with a stroller and the fairy that sits in it. It's actually a wheelbarrow and a stroller, meaning that it doesn't make much difference whether it's carrying fairies or corpses. This world's Orin is also a kasha, but here, that no longer means ''burning chariot.'' As such, she's unable to use Fire Phase attacks. This world has lost its Hell and all the Otherworlds one might go to after death, so its kasha have evolved to enable the constant flux of all things and the reincarnation of souls in their place.

The Focus Shot of Rin Kaenbyou from the buried city (a Touhou LW original). She attacks with a tale the fairies are fond of. Fairies aren't especially bright, so they have trouble distinguishing between what's real and what's made up. They tend to believe any story you tell them. You may think it'd be difficult to survive in the Underworld without the ability to tell lies from the truth, but they live on without a care. Education has failed.

A Spell Card of Rin Kaenbyou from the buried city. She attacks using zombie fairies. The fairies get a real kick out of pretending to be zombies, though it's not clear why. Although, perhaps that can be said for all the silly ways we have fun during childhood. Anyone who feels they've lost connection with their inner child is welcome to join in with the fairies. However, your safety cannot be guaranteed.

The Last Word of Rin Kaenbyou from the buried city (a Touhou LW original). She attacks with a dream of Gensokyo. It's been so long since this world became only the Underworld. However, that change is not marked at any point in history. It may be difficult to comprehend, but the reason this world became this way does not lie in this world's past. And so it follows that this world has been this way since the beginning. That may sound like a contraction, but it's the truth. Here, Gensokyo is an imaginary place that only exists in fairy tales.

Character Ability

Capable of carrying away corpses (Buried)
Expand
The ability of Rin Kaenbyou from the buried city (a Touhou LW original). In a perfectly sealed-off world, where nothing but the Underworld exists, Rin is a little out of the ordinary. As a kasha, she appears with lightning and strong gusts of wind to steal corpses from funeral processions. They are servants of Hell that supposedly take the form of bakeneko. That's the type of youkai Rin Kaenbyou is.

However, in this world, retrieving corpses is not the only role kasha play. They manage the spiritual food chain, otherwise known as the samsara, as the wheels of Hell. In this world, nothing but the Underworld exists―New Hell, Heaven, the outside world, and the Animal Realm are all gone. But the concept of life and death remains, and so someone needs to keep the cycle of spirit and flesh spinning, lest this world perish.

Vengeful spirits are spirits of those who died but became distorted, while fairies are impermanent beings in the process of rebirth, much like tree buds and larvae. So in this world, all beings become phantoms when they die, spend time as fairies, and are then reborn in their next bodies. This unique, permanent system could thus be called a triangular samsara and is what has allowed this world to exist for so long.

Rin Kaenbyou's role is to patrol this samsara circuit and teach those on their journey. Perhaps it's her affinity with wheels as a kasha, a ''burning chariot'' youkai, that allows her to do so.
For every layer of Barrier Status: Burn, Poison, or Blind, Agility, Accuracy, and Evasion 1 level UP.

Story Card Recommendations

(Card recommendations last updated on December 27, 2022)

Spell Card

While Rin has decent Spirit P generation, The Witch of Scarlet Dreams will ensure she never has to worry about running out, allowing her to fire at full cylinders all the time. Puppeteer and Necromancer works well as a damage booster for Spell Card 1, upping her output by 50%. Ability Cards? works well for a team oriented build, providing Agility and Accuracy boosts to the entire team when used.

Last Word

Your Last Word will full body any enemy when equipped with Body damage enhancing cards like Stand-In Shrine Maiden and Eating Contest. The former benefits more with also enhancing Rin’s Crit ACC.

Character Skill Level Up Recommendations

It's best to go in ascending order with Rin. Start off with Skill 1, Zombie Fairy Song to unlock consistency through Accuracy UP and damage through Agility UP, while providing her team with Spirit P to keep running. Skill 2, Palace Teacher comes next for a further boost of Spirit P for herself, and to dispel Debuffs or Seals inflicted on her. Skill 3, Fun Fairy Show will help with Rin’s damage, converting those Burn anomalies to buffs while inflicting Blind anomalies on enemies, prepping them for a break.

Character Strengths

Powerful Yin attacker with Water/Earth, Blind setting and breaking

Rin’s ability to ramp up her Yin ATK and Agility means she can very quickly build up the momentum she needs to wreak havoc on enemy teams, especially when taking into account the Slicing scaling on her Last Word. Healthy element breaks coupled with sources of Blind breaks on almost all her attacks will result in enemy teams very quickly being full broken under her assault.

Good Yin support means her teammates can follow suit while staying guarded

Rin doesn’t have to be the period at the end of your attacking sentence. Feel free to continue the attack with your teammates after providing them with the Yin ATK and Agility they need to crush the enemy. Should battles stretch longer, Rin has several sources of Barrier recovery for her team as well.

Low cooldown on Skill 1 means easy chaining of buffs and constant supply of Spirit P

Rin’s Skill 1 can be refired every 2 Turns, meaning she can reapply Agility and Accuracy buffs to her team constantly, while fuelling them with Spirit P for harder hitting attacks.

Can remove Debuffs or Seals on herself.

Rin’s second Skill doubles up as purification for any pesky Seals or Debuffs landed on her. Especially useful when looking to solo challenging content without needing to also cleanse fellow team mates.

Character Weaknesses

Lacks powerful Killers

Rin’s spread of Killers are fairly specific, allowing her to perform well on certain groups of enemies but not on others, limiting her damage output.

Watch out for friendly Burn

Rin’s 3rd Skill has the unfortunate side effect of also inflicting Burn on her allies. Consider pairing her with Friends who appreciate this anomaly, such as Utsuho (S5), Reimu (F1) or Megumu.
