The New Touhou Character Alternate Interpretation Compendium!:

I was basing my interpretation mainly on the fact that she apparently stood around the temple being Bishamonten for a few hundred years despite no one being around

I think she's dutiful, but not stupid. There's also the fact that if she stopped avataring, she'd lose her sense of purpose and fade away.

And judging from SoPM, Nazrin is less capable than people give her credit for.
Hopefully 13.5 will give them more characterisation.

Shou was capable and dutiful enough that Bishamonten was willing to trust her with a pagoda in the first place.

Nazrin had no particular loyalty starting off so if Shou was the kind of person to trip and drop the pagoda down a well, Nazrin would have told Bishamonten. Shou was basically on probation for a while/forever since Nazrin is apparently still assigned to her.

Can I just say that... I sorta like the idea of a Sakuya-like Shou? Duitiful and almost always competent, but has "special moments"?

Well, she is a rowdy drunk.

Maybe she accidentally drunk gambled away the pagoda to Rinnosuke when they were playing poker for some reason.

"Nazrin, find my Pagoda."
"Any idea where to start?"
"Uh... no. Nope. Just... just find it."
"Okay..."

"It cost me xxxxxx monies..."
"Oh... uh. I thought you'd just steal it from Rinnosuke, honestly."
"I never mentioned Rinnosuke."
"Uh... Look! A thing!" *dash*

I write some fanfiction. Satori's Tale is done... but I'm not.

Master?
I kinda overlooked the whole trustworthy thing. I guess she is pretty trustworthy. When she sets out to do things, she gets them done.

She is also pretty loyal and devoted. To a fault. She was so devoted to avataring her god that she missed Byakuren's sealing. And she was so devoted to Byakuren that she dropped everything and moved to unseal Byakuren as soon as she could after that.

Of course, I admit I could have misread Shou's profile.

She is supposedly the least creepy of Byakuren's disciples, although this is not hard when your competition is Lady Drownsalot, Miss Have-you-seen-my-cloud, and a pair of merry pranksters.

And Kyouko.

Also, Mr. likes to be exorcised.

Well, y'know. He probably wants to lose a bit of weight, so the exorcise will be good for him.

THANK YOU AND GOODNIGHT!

Maybe she's trying to be the only sane man of the group, but her own idiosyncrasies are making it impossible so she's just having to cope.

I wonder if her whole 'being Bishamonten' schtick involves acting like Bishamonten even when she's not on the job, or occasionally being a conduit for the cranky old war god when he wants to interact directly with his worshipers (or the Myouren crew) for whatever reason. Both would lead to interesting situations.

Eh, Bishamon's a pretty cool guy, as far as war gods go. He's got three other Heavenly Kings and three remaining Lucky Gods after them to hang with.

But yeah, I think he's pretty unobtrusive to off-duty avatars. I could definitely see him making short full possessions, but he's got other stuff to do, most of the time.

The fact that he sent Nazrin implies he's pretty hands off about the whole deal.

I wonder how she's supposed to handle any intervention that Bishie's (haha) worshipers request. Does she have to ask for permission on the spot or can she nick some motes of his faith pool to do what she needs? Does she or any piece of her regalia actually have any of his divine virtue?

Well, if it's true that pictures of her can bring good dreams I suppose some of his fortune has rubbed off on her. Also, the fact that the laser pagoda creates gems is itself an element of fortune.

Plus, she attracts treasure. So if you hang around her, you might get some.

That's what she claims, but according to Akyuu the picture actually just means that Nazrin won't steal from you like a thief in the night.

Maybe that's because her pictures are enchanted so that they laser Nazrin when she gets close?
