Personality: Koishi Komeiji's personality can be difficult to pin down on most occasions. The main reason for this is that she acts based upon her subconscious mind, her instincts. Conscious thought, planning, detailed contemplation and highly complicated and nuanced emotions are things that one does not encounter in her personality. She is instinctual, but has also lived as an instinctual being for so long that she displays an ability to communicate, operate and care for herself and those that interest her beyond the moment. This level of planning, however, should not be construed as being inherently different than a bird instinctually bringing twigs to build its nest. It does not require conscious thought, and is pre-programmed in knowledge and understanding from her past life, before having sealed her third eye.


The sealing of the third, 'Satori Eye' is the centerpiece of what makes Koishi the person that she is today. For reasons even she does not remember in detail, she sealed away both her conscious mind and the ability of the Satori to read other's minds. All that she says on this subject is to tell Reimu once that reading minds causes only trouble, bringing with it depression, potentially explaining in part the cynicism of her beloved sister, Satori Komeiji.

Koishi is a creature of instinct and urges. She does not have, or is thought not to have desire naturally inside of her, and instead has whims or reactions. When she sees something that she might want, she seeks to acquire it, but her urge does not transcend the experience and fades easily, desire not holding sway in her heart. Normally, she has no strong emotions at any time, being generally friendly, curious and pleasant to speak to, but taking little stock in the situation that she is involved in. While, on the surface, this makes her seem to be a perpetually smiling and kind-hearted person, she is still a youkai, a spiritual and predatory being who may have instinctual urges that can be quite violent and dangerous towards others, if she feels threatened or happens to take on a violent instinct out of the blue. More than this, she has next to no sense of empathy towards other. She can understand the stated 'why' of another's behavior, but just as she is rarely hated, rarely loved, rarely cared about, she does not always understand other's loves, fears or emotions, save at the subconscious levels, and even then she cannot simply read their subconscious minds, meaning that she only understands them as they are displayed and released in her presence visibly.

The only exception to this is a more recent development: Hope. Accidentally, she encountered the Mask of Hope, a possession of Hata no Kokoro, which carried within it the concentrated essence of the emotion of hope. Kokoro warned against using only this one mask when trying (post canon point) to re-acquire it that it could create emotional instability, though Koishi appears protected from this risk by her relative lack of emotions in general. She has begun experiencing hope for the first time since her closing of the Satori Eye, and found herself somewhat addicted to the experience. It has brought an increased positive element to her bearing, one that looks towards the potential with, for lack of a better word, hope. It has not caused much more than a slight yearning in her to awaken further, experiencing the loneliness of her life as a closed-eye Satori and a desire to be remembered by others. She has clearly (as is seen post-canon point in her interactions in Hopeless Masquerade) forgotten how much she missed the company of others in an ongoing fashion, or to be remembered by them. Because of this, she hopes for the experience to continue and is developing the first hints of an addiction to being noticed and the possession of her Mask.

All of this related to the Mask is at the earliest stages. Her powers still overwhelm most interactions, but with every passing person who does not forget her, her hope blossoms and she takes on a greater desire to be remembered and above all to be noticed by others. It has built what could be described as a slightly exhibitionist behavior, one seen in the conflicts of Hopeless Masquerade.

Psychological Condition: Healthy...right?!



:Powers!:
Koishi possesses the power to Read and Manipulate the subconscious.
Subconscious Thought Process and Protection: Koishi does not think or act consciously, and her conscious mind is sealed, locked and inactive. This has sealed away the Satori racial ability to read minds, making it impossible for her to read other's thoughts, and has severely hampered any level of empathy that she has towards others. Her actions are difficult, if not impossible to predict, seemingly haphazard while at the same time being very dangerous in combat. Her mind is nearly impossible to read, as her conscious mind is sealed even from herself, and her subconscious is both protected by this barrier and also inconsistent enough to be very hard to interpret.

Even fellow mind-reading Satori and most supernatural creatures are affected by this power. It causes it to be hard to remember or feel strongly about Koishi. Even when she is present in front of someone, Koishi must exert a very small amount of personal effort to allow most to remember her. Very young children are immune to this effect, and sometimes remember her as an imaginary friend until they grow up and forget her again. This means that, aside from very young children, child-like or instinctual minds, or particularly strong-willed people, it is difficult for people to remember Koishi between conversations (For example, both Marisa and Reimu, two of the most powerful magicians in the Touhou universe, both do not remember who Koishi is when they encounter her at the start of Hopeless Masquerade, despite the fact that she is literally the last boss of the game both are in previously, not more than a few years prior, and the sister of a person who makes both very nervous.).

Presumably, because her power operates on the human mind, it is not actual invisibility. It does not impact technological recording, and because it requires a certain subconscious manipulation by her, recorded information about Koishi can result in conflicting information that relates pieces of information about her that may be remembered by others.

The Mask of Hope – So long as the Mask of Hope is in her possession, her Subconscious control of herself is not 100% secure. She has begun to subconsciously experience the emotion of Hope and related emotions. As she experiences and builds emotions in others, these impressions are just barely starting to cause people to recall her. It is a slow process, and characters still frequently forget details about her.

Subconscious Manipulation – Through manipulation of the subconscious, she is capable of causing others to experience and see what she desires, usually seeing the weaknesses in their own hearts of which they are not consciously aware. Most of her magic and spell cards come from this ability.[/center]

Koishi Komeiji's Story

Spinning around in a circle as she walked down the streets of Wing City, Koishi Komeiji walked carelessly down the streets with her arms outstretched. Every now and then rather than walking she would turn around to let out a "Vrrrrm!" sound, mimicking a plane. On-lookers didn't bother her, mostly because of her lack of a 'presence'.

Koishi, being that she sealed off her power to read minds, can thus slip into obscurity and not be recognized by others. It wasn't that she was invisible, but rather their brain is unable to imprint her into their memory. Even those aside from her sister who were her friends had problems remembering her and thus had objects which help them remember her. She could, however, choose to be seen by people easier and make her presence known.

After fooling around a bit and dancing around, she eventually stopped by one of the buildings and leaning up against it, letting out a small sigh. She allowed herself to be seen by others, giggling and wiping sweat from her brow. "Woooo~w! What a day! I got a bunch of candy and everything~"

Above the atmosphere of Wing City, another large ship arrived once it located the signal of The Remembrance Of Truth. This ship, The Astral Halberd, had taken three weeks to locate the Black Templars missing marshal. "Captain Carnaelgaar, we have finally located the Black Templars missing ship. However it seems their orbital weaponry has been recently used. We are raising them on the vox channels." One of the crewman onboard the battle barge spoke directly to the captain. Excellent work brothers, it appears that our brothers in the Black Templars have managed to survive, praise the Emperor! However someone get me some information on that planet, it seems that the planet appears to have life on it." The captain spoke and the crewman complied with his request.

Once the crew of The Astral Halberd scanned the surface on the planet, Carnaelgaar seemed intrigued by the technology of the city. It appeared that the city was untouched by war, and it has many technological advancements. Perhaps the planet was ripe with an opportunity to search for valuable technology, hopefully even advanced medical facilities. "Prepare a Thunderhawk transport, I shall investigate the planet to see if it has anything of technological value." Carnaelgaar spoke and procceded from the bridge of the ship to the hanger where he boarded one of the hundreds of Thunderhawks each painted red with a symbol of a black raven with a blood drop in the middle of it.

It took a minute until a red ship was seen flying near the city buildings instead of the starport, once he was 8 stories off the ground the rear of the transport opened up as it hovered in place. "While I am gone, make sure our fellow chapter brothers are stocked with new supplies. They must be running low on ammunition but knowing that they prefer melee combat its better to give them medical supplies and food." Carnaelgaar spoke before jumping from the ship and landing on the streets below without so much as cracking the pavement below, his physic powers passively slowing his descent.

Leaning against the wall for a little bit, she had time to get settled and relaxed to the sounds around her. This made the whirring of a space ship up above particularly odd. She looked around, trying to find the source however once she found the source there was a guy in HUUUUUGE hulking armor floating down towards the ground. She stared, head tilted while she thought to herself...

Once he had landed, she began walking over to him with her hands behind her back, each step was swayed as she giggled to herself. Pulling out a piece of candy from the pocket and offering the lollipop in the large armored man's direction. "Excuuuse me~ Hungry?" She asked, tilting her head.

Carnaelgaar looked at his surroundings, the building were tall, the people were dressed in a multitude of clothing, and everyone appeared to be peaceful, almost as if they were never part of a long war. However soon something caught his attention, a small girl walked up to him and offered him a lollipop.

Now this was a very rare sight for him, the sight of a child. Most of the time he would see marching soldiers or many grown people wandering around, but the sight of a young child just brimming with happiness this made him gently smile underneath his helmet. This is one of the reasons why he continues to fight, to have a future where people no longer have to fear war. "Greeting young one." He spoke gently as he crouched down to appear a little less intimidating and took of his helmet alowing his face to be seen. It looked like the man was in his early 30's with long blonde hair despite being more than 500 year old. Once he took a look at the thing the young girl was offering him, he looked puzled. That was food? It looked like a stick was placed inside a ball and it looked so small that it could not possibly fill anyone up. Regardless he decided to accept the food from the girl. "Thank you for the food." He smiled and after studying the lollipop for a few second, unwrapped the piece of candy and placed it in his mouth.

Koishi blinked twice, staring at the man as he got down to her level almost, and removed the helmet he wore. It didn't intimidate her...she had seen plenty of things that were scary, and used to hear plenty of things in her head that were just as scary! Still, she offered that bright smile of hers that upheld her innocent appearance. He was smiling too! And smiling was always good!

"Yup yup! Don't call Koishi young one though, Koishi is Koishi! Not young." She nodded to herself at this information she imparted, and then giggled to herself. "Either way, Koishi has plenty more of those! And lots of other things...Koishi has been bored though! Lots of people don't want to play...weeeell...they're often busy. But anyways...!" Her 3rd person speech was something she was just used to doing...she couldn't even remember when it started. That, and what she talked about...it made her sound even younger than she looked.

Carnaelgaar chuckled a little bit at the girl. "Alright then Koishi, apologies for calling you young." He laughed and playfully pet her head. What he was doing was something that could only come in a dream for him and his other fellow brothers, but here he was smiling and playing around with this girl. He had decided to go to the planet to explore and gather new technology but here he was talking to this girl, regardless he was actually happy so he decided to enjoy this little slice of peace while he could.

"So, Koishi. You said you wanted to play right? Well it so happens that I am free for the moment. So what did you have in mind? What type of games do you want to play?" Carnaelgaar offered to play with this girl. He had no idea where to start so he might as well just pass the time until he came across something that catches his interest.

Koishi tilted her head to him, and grinned wide as she heard him apologize. "It's okay~" She replied rather quickly, her wide open green eyes staring at him. Once he mentioned what games she'd play, she had trouble thinking, grumbling and rubbing her chin as she tilted her head from side to side. "Uuuum....Well, Koishi doesn't really get to be around people other than her sister in general...maybe playing isn't required but...maybe just keep Koishi company? She doesn't get to talk to lots of people...so would you like to listen to Koishi?~" She asked this and giggled, swaying from side to side.

Carnaelgaar nodded when Koishi wanted company. "As you wish, I may not be the best of company but I will gladly listen to whatever you say. Oh my...apologies but I have not introduced myself yet, where are my manners? my name is Carnaelgaar. So if you just want to talk, how about we wander around the city while we talk? I am new around these parts and I would also like to see what this city has to offer." He replied, attaching his helmet to his waist.

"Carnaelgaar?" She asked, her head tilted as she blinked...that was an odd name, at least to her. Then again, she was from an eastern culture and most outside names were odd to her. Koishi did nod at the mention of roaming the city and she nodded ecstatically.

"Okay!~" She spun around excitedly, and reached out instinctively to grab for his hand to help him around. "Koishi knows how to walk around this place well! It's biiig...and scary sometimes. But, people don't see Koishi very often so she is okay here! But...there's lots of people selling stuff...like animals! OOOH! There was one that had a really fluffy tail and a scary mouth...a lion...?!"

Carnaelgaar watched as Koishi seemed confused by his name, his name was pretty strange but in his area it was common to hear such names. But he was in a different part of the galaxy so his name must have sounded weird to others.

Once Carnaelgaar was prepared to walk around the city, Koishi grabbed him by the hand and began to lead him around the city. She soon began to explain that the city was big and that lots of people sold stuff like animals. Carnaelgaar looked at the animal curiously, a...lion? That's what she called it. He has never seen such a creature before, in fact looking at the other animals he has never seen any of them before. "I have never seen animals like these before." He spoke as he examined every one of them.

Koishi's mind raced as she walked, her smaller hand gripping Carnaelgaar's hand tightly. As he spoke of the animals, she nodded to herself. "Yup yup! Lots of animals...Koishi can't read their minds anymore, but she used to! Animals had the funniest thoughts...ehehe..."

She blinked and thought to herself. "Uuumm...do you know people who can read mind like satori?...Or...ohh! Do you know any other satori?! Koishi and Satori have been looking for more buuut...we may be the only ones!"

Carnaelgaar chuckled when Koishi said that she could read animal minds. "I'm sure you heard many funny thoughts coming from a animal." He spoke as he studied another animal.

When Koishi asked Carnaelgaar if he could read minds, he turned to face her before speaking. "I have met many people that have the power to read minds, in fact I can read minds too. Its just one of the many things I can do, I can show you a demonstration of my mind reading if you want." He asked.

She stared now as he turned to face her, blinking at what was said...read her mind? Her confused expression twisted into a wide grin once more as she tilted her head to the side.

"Not even Satori can read Koishi's mind~ Or uhm...she can, but she says she hears nothing!" She nodded and her head moved to the other side. "Do you think you can hear Koishi's mind?" Koishi asked this, her hands placed behind her back now as she stared at him, curious once more though accompanied by a smile.

"I believe I can read your mind, unless you posses a strong mind and have some strong powers than it may be a little harder to enter your mind. I promise this will not hurt at all, so all you have to do is think of something that I can't guess and I will try my best to read your mind." Carnaelgaar spoke with a smile. It was a sincere smile, his mind reading would not put any strain on another person mind. It would have been close to planting yourself in another persons mind just to hear them talk.

She stared at the taller man for a moment, confused and tilting her head to one side. If he wanted to try entering her mind, she wouldn't resist or complain...and if he thought he could read her thoughts, that'd be great! Save that, she was skeptical if he could or not.

"Weeell...if you want to try, Koishi wouldn't mind! But...don't be surprised if it doesn't work~" Koishi nodded to him, grinning wide.

Koishi tilted her head, then shook her head giggling. "Nu-uh!" Her thoughts had been focused on how weird his armor was, and that if the armor gave him the mind reading powers...or maybe it was an amulet or something! "Can you really not hear Koishi's mind? She can think of things..." She placed her hands behind her back, swaying back and forth.

" Carnaelgaar spoke as he scratched the back of his head. "Just kidding, you are thinking if this armour of mines or some sort of amulet I have is allowing me to read your mind. It's all in the mind, knowledge is power of course." He chuckled as he joked around.

She stared at him for a moment, taken aback...she then gasped and took a step back with her hand raised to cover her mouth. "You...! You read Koishi's mind! Your mind reading must be a lot stronger than big sister's...! " Koishi would lower her hand and place it behind her again, swaying slower. "Huuummm...maybe it's because Koishi is trying to be noticed by people though~ That's usually the easiest."

She looked down to her third eye's missing 'cord' that was supposed to attach to her forehead, giving the missing area a small poke. It shuddered, and as did she. "Hmmm....Koishi misses reading minds...sometimes! But when she's unable to stop reading them, it's hard!"

Drawn by words that beget shining Ids a squat humanoid appears from an alley. In this new world's so many unknowns those that reflected the words of others were familiar. Overshadowed by a backpack more than its own size its wearer waddles closer. A humanoid clad in ruffling all-black clothes it looks crushed rather than short. Strange proportions and too wide for its height. The face below its hood resembles a human shape but the rough matte black surface that wavers like sandy dunes. Though a few feet away it squints to see light with which to identify the titles in whole. Other than compressed clothes that flap in nonexistent wind it says nothing at first. A direct if simple creature it readies in order the questions written since it arrived.

"Why has the underworks stopped? I cannot return to Myrkul's Vein.", it said to both unaware of its interruption.

Its hollow voice while placid lays under thick sandy noise. Intent listening for an answer it bent its head at the center not the neck. Such things unlikely for those with bones inside. The listening creature slowly gained height as it stood there, backpack shrinking, which leave the boneless mass soon apparent.

Carnaelgaar nearly reacted badly when Koishi poked her forehead only to watch it shudder as if something was there. He calmed himself down immediately."Calm yourself Carnaelgaar, she is just native to this planet. No need to do something that will be foolish." He calmly thought to himself.

The unsettling event was short lived for Carnaelgaar however as a mysterious figure appeared on the scene. The figure oon began to ask a strange question he had no answer for. "Apologies, but I have no idea of what you speak of. You must have the wrong people." He answered, quite aware that this figure was unusual.

Jinhai looked around not getting the response it had expected. Its head swiveled backward to glance from where it came hood and all. Had it gotten to the place it expected to go? The head continued the same way around to point frontward again.

There where new questions written on the top of its list now that everything changed. Its flat tone as one reading them off without care. The speed spoken belies some excitement, "Am I not atop the foundation of the last emperor? I have found a way out? Away from the last emperor all titles are unknowing so aren't all titles equal in chance to write an answer?"

Its proportions stop increasing at a little over five foot. Jinhai angles its now less oval head to think out loud, "Perhaps you will know the answer later. I can ask you then. Chapters of war adorn your tools. They will write order into the chaos of the unknown so I am safe to read it your wake."

It lists at the hip toward Koishi as if just noticing her, "Another title? I wonder if you too have new things we could know?"

Looked up a bit confused. There was another person? He was talking to Carnaelgaar in a sort of familiar way, maybe they knew each other? Her third eye by her chest floated from the cords, moving slightly.

"Who is this?" She asked as she tilted her head to Carnaelgaar, reaching to tug any cloth he may have in order to get his attention. "He's kinda spooky...!"

"Unfortunately I have no answers to your questions, I only know one Emperor of the Imperium Of Man. I am new to this part of the universe, so I cannot answer most of your questions." Carnaelgaar replied. The figures words however had an interesting meaning, Chapters of war adorn his tools. They will write order into the chaos of the unknown. It was as if he knew what he has faced before, or at the very least understood why he fights.

His thought were interrupted when he felt something tugging on him, Carnaelgaar looked down to see Koishi asking him if he knew who he was. "I do not know who he is, however i do sense he is more than he appears." He replied.

Jinhai makes a sound like wind whistling through dunes its cowl shaking.

Its head nods sharp at Carnaelgaar, "New order is not always convenient. I think you are a title that has many answers to questions I haven't asked yet."

A reflective bump appeared on Jinhai's outstretched hand that swirled in place. The literal spiral eye darting to and fro to details there. Jinhai pointed it at some of the markings on the massive armor.

Jinhai's voice goes soft if still grated, "Myrkul's vein ate dying chaos whispering order. In deep chaos a title for itself in an emperor of man but found his title ended before the world began. Myrkul's vein mourns the foundation stone of a faceless emperor of man. Are you also written in an emperor's image?"
