Kordylewski Cloud
Expand
Kordylewski Cloud (a Touhou LW original) refers to trojan clouds of dust that share the orbit of Earth. This is the temperament of the mysterious Sagume of the Capital, whose position is similar to that of the moon yet completely different. Her temperament is not limited to the usual archetypes because the colossal system of the Capital is altering it.

This temperament is specialized to solely resist Earth Phase.

Character Shots

The Spread Shot of Sagume Kishin from the Capital (a Touhou LW original). She attacks with unique Yin-Yang Orb devices. It is not known whether these Yin-Yang Orbs are the real thing or not, or even if they are related to the Yin-Yang Orbs seen on Earth. However, there is no doubt that the Sagume of this world has specialized in the use of these Yin-Yang Orbs to keep the peace (or in other words, fight).

The Focus Shot of Sagume Kishin from the Capital (a Touhou LW original). She attacks with unique Yin-Yang Orb devices. It seems that Sagume uses different Yin-Yang Orb devices for a range of specific applications. The devices are just like familiars in how they can be controlled at will... It is almost as if they possess a high level of sentience.

A Spell Card of Sagume Kishin from the Capital. She attacks with mine-type Yin-Yang Orb devices that detect people who are impure. For those who live in cities, bringing in impurity is the absolute worst taboo one can commit. This is because people live in cities to get away from impurities. Assigning responsibilities for impurities and the separation of people from impurities are part of the processes that turn a community into a city. The Capital must have walked this path in the past.

A Spell Card of Sagume Kishin from the Capital. In this attack, her Yin-Yang Orbs act as a proxy for impurities. Any acts that deal with life or death are impure and should be avoided. This Sagume's Yin-Yang Orb devices can perform impure acts in someone's stead. In other words, Sagume can use them to perform any actions that carry a risk of contracting impurity.

The act of avoiding impurity by forcing it onto someone or something else is rooted in the traditional concept of sacrifices and scapegoats. According to Shinto mythology, Ame no Sagume is familiar with such things.

The Last Word of Sagume Kishin from the Capital (a Touhou LW original). A peculiar Yin-Yang Orb device responds to Sagume's voice and purges her opponents in this attack. Sagume purposefully removes the mask device that usually suppresses her voice when she activates her ability. The words that Sagume utters are spoken in such a soft voice that they cannot be heard or identified. However, some people seem to have noticed that her whispering is much cuter than you would think, that she speaks unexpectedly fast, and that she appears embarrassed after speaking for some reason.

Character Ability

Capable of reversing a situation with her words (Concealed)
Expand
The ability of the secret Sagume Kishin. Her ability doesn't appear to be any different from the usual Sagume, but it may have been redeveloped with different underlying principles. It seems the purpose for this varies depending on which world she is assigned to. However, the primary cause is unknown and requires further investigation. Type-Zero Mystical Balls: The mass-produced impurity proxy devices used by Sagume of the Capital. They look similar to Yin-Yang Orbs, so it is speculated that their designer had some involvement in creating these devices. Apart from a few exceptions, they are all mass-produced from the same materials with interchangeable parts to specialize in various applications. Apparently, they can often be seen in the Capital performing surveillance and sometimes raising the alarm or conducting small-scale purges. In principle, the devices are connected to Sagume and coordinate with her at all times. However, they can also apparently perform a limited set of tasks independently in environments where communication is impossible. The devices may look similar to eyes, but their functionality is closer to that of ears. It is rumored that they can interpret sounds and written text as words, which they use to identify impurities. Telepathic Auto-Translating Speaker Device: The gas mask device used by Sagume of the Capital. This is an improved version of the bowtie device that she used to wear. Not much is known about Sagume's ability except that when Sagume utters words about an event to someone involved in that event, the situation begins to reverse. This means that her ability cannot be activated as long as she is prevented from speaking. Also, it seems that her ability does not affect events that have already happened. However, it is best if she refrains from needlessly speaking because if she comments on past events, there is a possibility that her words will interfere with similar events that will happen in the future or even cause such events to occur. In regards to how the events are reversed, it seems that her ability might, for example, simply change the chance of rain from 80% to 20%, but there is no definitive proof of this. This may not be directly connected to her ability, but it seems the Sagume of this world feels embarrassed when she takes off her mask. This is probably because she has grown so accustomed to leaving it on.
When inflicted by Barrier Status: Paralyze or Blind, inflicts the same Barrier Status to target.
When using Boost, party's Yang ATK 1 level UP (1 turn).
When using Graze, party's Accuracy 1 level UP (1 turn).

Character Analysis

B3 Sagume Kishin was released on April 14th, 2022 in Ultra Festival: Masked Words of Truth.

Universe B3 Sagume Kishin, Codename: Azusa, is a Lunarian divine spirit, leading political figure and protector of the Lunar Capital alongside Otohime (B3 Toyohime) and Kannagi (B3 Yorihime). Much like her universe L1 self, she has the ability to reverse a situation by speaking about it. If she were to speak about someone defeating her in battle, the reverse would happen. But the ability is very double-edged, as she can cause misfortune for herself and her allies if she does not choose her words carefully. However, in her B3 version, she wears a mask over her mouth which nullifies her ability. She is very strong as a divine spirit regardless, so she wears the mask in order to communicate succinctly without having the possibility of calamity brought upon by her words. Being on the level of the Watatsuki sisters, she is naturally an EX-Tier Friend.

For farming, Sagume keeps up with the best. Her Last Word, Curiosity Probing Eye, can do great damage with her killers and ability to reach 6 stacks of Yang ATK and Crit ATK on the first turn. Sagume can farm The Witch of Scarlet Dreams (2-7-1) if awakened, Mysterious Sword Master (3-3-3) at 8 SP, Puppeteer and Necromancer (3-11-1) at 8 SP, and a future story card stage at 8 SP. 

Sagume truly shines in challenging content, where she acts as a swiss army knife. Her 1st skill, Basophil Orb, restores 1 barrier with a 50% chance to give 2 barriers and gives 3 stages of Yin and Yang DEF to the party for 3 turns. Her 2nd skill, Eosinophil Orb, is her main claim to fame with a whopping 1.0 P to the party, 3 stages of Crit ACC, and Quick to herself, the latter synergizing with her Last Word. Finally, her 3rd skill, Neutrophil Orb, gives the party 2 stages of Yang ATK, 3 stages of Yin ATK, and 3 stages of Crit ATK to the party for 2 turns. With a 6 turn cool down, her 2nd skill’s power support is a major boost to her teammates, but will usually only be used once in any given fight. Sagume’s 1st spell card, Orb Sign: Impure Body Detection Mines V2, gives the party 2 barriers, helping to augment its survivability even further. Her 2nd spell card, Orb Sign: Shining Shotgun Coronation of the Gods, provides 2 stages of Agility to the party for 3 turns and a party wide 0.75 P up. Her Last Word finally gives the team 2 stages of Yang ATK, 3 stages of Yang DEF, and 3 stages of Crit ATK to the party for 2 turns for additional utility. Her Last Word also deals great damage as it contains wide reaching killers like Youkai killer and both Slice and Hard scaling. Her passives also give her some major boons with her 1st passive reducing damage against Youkai, 2nd passive healing barrier anomalies, and her final passive being a 50% barrier restoration. Thus, her survivability is helped somewhat despite her being fairly frail with herself giving focus down on her spell cards. With her Boosts and Grazes giving party wide Yang ATK and Accuracy respectively, Sagume’s utility and damage are all great for challenging content. One thing to note about Sagume though are her specular bullets. With her Yin bullets actually being mirrored to target enemy Yang defense, Sagume is easier to support. However, her damage may be lackluster towards enemies who have high Yang defense as a result. 

Her barrier breaks are also no slouch,  starting off with a P0 Moon basic shot. While her main breaks are Metal and Moon, Sagume also has Paralysis and Blind breaks with her 1st and 2nd spell card respectively. Her 1st spell card also has some decent breaks there with 2 Star, 2 Moon, and 2 Metal. However, her main claim to fame here is the pre-effect her 1st spell card has. As it inflicts 2 Paralysis barriers as a pre-effect, her Paralysis break will proc and break the barriers. On the other hand, her 2nd spell card is more focused with 4 Metal breaks and 2 Moon breaks. Her 2nd spell card suffers from lacking in terms of blind support and thus cannot be used as practically as her 1st spell card. Finally, her Last Word has 3 Moon breaks and 3 Metal breaks while also having Blind and Paralysis breaks as a back up plan to barrier break the enemies. Another thing to note is that her barrier breaks are back loaded aside from her first spell card. Therefore, using her barrier breaks to their max potential in terms of elements may be a bit difficult.

Overall, Sagume is a jack of all trades, master of none. However, her support is so close to the best that she can trade blows with the best of the bunch at their respective buff. Sagume will enable your team to reach new heights by herself and while she may not provide any specific kind of support as well as more specialized friends, none quite sum it all up like her.

Here are the relevant scalings which Sagume has:

Hard Scaling: 40%/0%/0%/0%/0%/0%
Self Yang DEF up (3T): 0%/100%/0%/0%/0%/0%/
Paralysis Inflict (3T): 0%/0%/0%/0%/0%/50%

Story Card Recommendations

Spell Card

As with all characters, Spirit Power is always great to have on these characters and Sagume wants the power to break more barriers with her attacks. Alternatively, using A Curious Festival on her 1st spell card is a decent idea due to how hard it can hit. Finally, for stat filler, look for Yang ATK filler with a preference for Yang DEF.

Last Word

With how many types of killers her Last Word has, World In Hands provides Sagume the best boost in damage with 2 stages of Crit ATK and a 25% boost energy bullets for her Last Word. Alternatively, Standing Behind You provides 1 stage of Crit ATK and a 30% to her Moon Bullets. Finally, Where the Wind Priestess Is serves as the best baseline when not fighting enemies that the killer bullets will crit. However, a future story card will come that gives her better damage than the options listed.

Character Skill Level Up Recommendations

Sagume wants her 2nd skill raised up first. Her 2nd skill allows her to reach 2P on the first turn and thus use her barrier breaks to the fullest. After that, her 3rd skill should be prioritized to optimize her damage as it provides her with Yang ATK and Crit ATK. Finally, her 1st skill should be leveled to help with her Hard scaling on her Last Word.

Character Strengths

+ 0P Moon on Focus shot
+ High and versatile utility.
+ Great barrier breaks with paralysis breaks, blind breaks, and a decent spread of Metal and Moon.
+ Great damage all around.

Character Weaknesses

- Cooldown on her 2nd skill makes it more of a one time use than a skill that actively supports the team.
- Team can become more fragile with self-inflicted Focus down on spell cards.
