    Mateyuu Dawitsu 
An egocentric, eccentric, geeky, yet lovable youkai from the outside world who lives in a floating mansion known as The Dawitsu Mansion. His signature ability is his ability to mimic others' abilities, and he thus can form all kinds of combination spell-cards (not to mention cram in as many Shout Outs as possible).

  • Adorkable: Dawitsu is the typical lovable geek; obsessed with collecting things, awkward about the issue of love, selfish at times and somewhat intelligent, yet when it comes to being a good friend or being altruistic, he'll never let you down.
  • All Love Is Unrequited: Dawitsu is hopelessly in love with Yutaka, a fact obvious from at least Grimoire of Dawitsu onwards.
  • All Your Powers Combined: He can occasionally mimic techniques which are actually the result of many peoples' actions, notably he copies Team Dark's 'Chaos Inferno' in Jean's Magical Education.
  • Ambiguously Human: He's repeatedly mistaken for Tengu due to wearing a tokin and having the same lack of defining features (such as wings and the likes) and being a youkai. He also loves gossip, and there are hints throughout the series that Aya has a slight crush on him. Despite this, Dawitsu himself claims he isn't.
  • Amicable Exes: Is still very good friends with Sakuya, even post-breakup.
  • An Ice Person: Dawitsu puts out a fire using PK Freeze Omega.
  • Attention Whore: Boy, is he. He starts a fight with Jean because he's the reincarnation of Myouren Hijiri, posing threat to his 'rightful spot' as main character (even though the name of the current book is Jean's Magical Education... he isn't the main character there).
  • Author Avatar: Subverted. He's more like a flanderized version of the author, in some sense, and he certainly doesn't voice the author's opinions, yet his looks and nationality are based on the author's own.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Whenever Dawitsu gets serious, he usually will kick ass in some way, shape, or form. Except when against Reimu or Yukari.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Dawitsu shows signs of intelligence at times, likes to play Chess, and is qualified as a veterinary surgeon in the outside world, using such skills to save Sakuya's life. However, he is often outsmarted by many other characters, and often acts far more immature than his supposed intelligence would imply.
  • British Stuffiness: Isn't stuffy at all.
  • Camp Straight: Certainly camp (he loves to dance to J-pop in choreographed routines, gets on with women well, not exactly manly, cross-dresses with little protest, drives a Pink Cadillac in Holiday Edition...), yet definitely straight (Sakuya and him become Friends with Benefits, he's constantly crushing over Yutaka, he acknowledges several of the Touhou girls as attractive, has a thing for Zettai Ryouiki...)
  • The Chew Toy: Out of all the characters, Dawitsu is the most likely to get beaten senselessly. And usually he deserves it...
  • Chivalrous Pervert: Dawitsu's value system seems to be this; it's fine to comment on a woman's good looks, but emotionally hurting her is off the plate. In fact, he's generally more concerned about the object of his affection than he is about himself.
  • Clone Degeneration: Dawitsu can clone himself, forming Chibi versions of himself, but their life span is extremely short and they are not always the sharpest tools in the shed.
  • Cool Hat: His tokin.
  • Cool Teacher: Subverted in that he tries to be cool to the kids he ends up teaching, but fails miserably.
  • Costume Copycat
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Dawitsu is a wacky, often dense kind of guy, but if you genuinely anger him or upset him, he becomes a force of nature. Or at the very least, has an overly-planned revenge scheme at hand, as Hatate's case proved.
  • Drag Queen: Of the straight variety. He happily dresses as a maid if it's for Yutaka.
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": Subverted. Only Yutaka and Ran, who call him 'Boss' and 'Master' respectively.
  • Frickin' Laser Beams: He can imitate the frickin laser beam, the Master Spark, without even requiring the hakkero.
  • Friend to All Children: Dawitsu shows his soft spot for the immature all the way back in Dawitsu's Folly by reading to his new shikigami's shikigami, Chen, a bedtime story. He also takes to teaching Flandre well, and works hard to make her grow up and develop as a person in Recompense. Also, all the way in Yutaka's Big Fat Youkai Wedding, he and Medicine 'Merriment' hit it off instantly, and Dawitsu throws the doll-sized girl up repeatedly, making her laugh her head off and in general making the reader think he'd be a great father. He also expresses a desire to have children, but seems to have accepted he'll never find someone to have children with. However, this trope is Zig Zagged, as he's awful at teaching groups of children at the human village, and is hated by the children despite his best efforts to be down with the kids.
  • Gary Stu: Subverted. Dawitsu is a Self-Insert, yet is very subject to the flaws of most people. He's not treated well by people he's a jerk to, and he's treated well by people he's friends with. Any action that he does which is selfish, he'll almost instantly feel bad about, but sometimes, he cannot instantly reconcile with the person he's wronged. Overall, he's closer to a real person than a Gary Stu, yet still has some lingering traits of one.
  • Genre Savvy: Boy, is he... he repeatedly paints the medium, acknowledges if things went smoothly, there'd be no story, and sometimes flat-out says he's an original character of a fanfiction.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: There are many hints throughout the series that show that Dawitsu doesn't have the highest of self-esteems. For one, he never considers himself to be a good boyfriend, and many of his attempts to joke revolve around calling himself a 'loser', which suggests he genuinely feels that way about himself. He also repeatedly talks about how selfish he is, ad nauseum to some readers.
  • Hidden Depths: On the surface, Dawitsu's a loud, proud geek who's quite sociable, and is somewhat arrogant and self-assured. However, in private, Dawitsu can range from a warm, caring person who's perfectly prepared to put himself on the line for his friends to an emotional wreck who cannot get over his love for Yutaka and fears Dying Alone.
  • Insecure Love Interest: He really can't give himself a break on this; firstly in Holiday Edition, Sakuya wants to be with him, but he's afraid he'd let her down due to the fact he's a Youkai and she's a human, meaning he'd stay young while she'd age in a committed relationship. He finally settles for Friends with Benefits until Sakuya finds herself a good human man. Secondly, it's revealed in Jean's Magical Education that Ran is desperately in love with Dawitsu, but he isn't sure (after his trainwreck of a relationship with Sakuya, as well as having a one-sided crush on Yutaka) if he can be a good boyfriend to her.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: Dawitsu certainly doesn't care about age barriers. He's friends with humans, and Yutaka is half his age.
  • I Was Beaten by a Girl: Several times. He's Genre Savvy enough to not even mention this... really, losing to People Of Mass Destruction is nothing to be ashamed of.
  • Julius Beethoven da Vinci: Dawitsu (and his family) existed in the outside world without raising suspicion by being relocated and renamed throughout history.
  • Last-Name Basis: Apparently invoked by the author, as apparently Dawitsu's first name is an Old Shame for him, thus most people refer to him as 'you' or 'Dawitsu'. Yutaka and Ran call him 'Boss' and 'Master' respectively, though.
  • Large Ham: Part of his Refuge in Audacity is that he's hammy as hell, and will do his very best to steal the show by spazzing around.
  • Master of Disguise: Via use of a cigarette case that causes him to change appearance...
  • Mayfly–December Romance: He and Sakuya. It doesn't work out because of this trope, or rather, Dawitsu feels bad due to it. They end it when Sakuya finds someone willing to commit to her beyond Friends with Benefits.
  • Medium Awareness: Dawitsu openly states the story's a fanfiction at one point.
  • Occidental Otaku: Dawitsu is british, yet has an obsession with manga and anime, as well as video games in general.
  • Official Couple: With Ran of all people.
  • Power Copying: His signature ability.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Dawitsu's three-hundred and eighteen, yet looks like a man in his early twenties.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to Yutaka's blue.
  • Refuge in Audacity: Dawitsu quite obviously at times uses his lame, not-so-funny jokes to try and change the subject from something that clearly has upset him...
  • Sad Clown: Whenever something is upsetting to him, he tends to either ham it up or make a joke.
  • Ship Tease: With Sakuya, Yutaka, Alice, Hebiko, and Ran. So totally not a Gary Stu.
  • Techno Babble: Somewhat prone to it, although Yutaka's worse.
  • The Genie Knows Jack Nicholson: Justified in-universe- he's lived in the outside world and is very well in tune with pop culture because of it.
  • Time Master: Only when he's in possession of the necessary MacGuffin. He uses Sakuya's watch in Dawitsu's Folly, and a replica chaos emerald in Jean's Magical Education.
  • Uncle Pennybags: When on his holiday in the outside world, courtesy of Yutaka.
  • Wouldn't Hit a Girl: Averted. Dawitsu has absolutely no qualms attacking females, and shows that he's willing to use physical violence against Yukari in their Good Old Fisticuffs moment in Dawitsu's folly.

    Yutaka Hadekawa 
The Shikigami and best friend of Mateyuu Dawitsu, and a youkai magician. Unlike her hammy Boss, she is the stoic, intelligent, yet secretly devious emotional support who is capable of manipulating matter into other forms of matter. Also, unlike her boss, she is a pacifist, and is not that good at Danmaku.

  • Actual Pacifist: Most of the time, at least.
  • Battle Couple: With Patchouli, rarely.
  • Covert Pervert: Yutaka is the most likely candidate to deliver Fridge Logic-level subtlety innuendos, not to mention she seems to understand totally how a straight girl's mind works in relation to men despite being a lesbian herself.
  • Cute Bookworm: She's a magician, and thus she's quite bookish. She is also cute. However, she is socially capable, more so than the likes of her boss, so she's actually a subversion despite hitting the trope name to a tee.
  • Elegant Gothic Lolita: Occasionally wears an outfit like this.
  • Eyes Always Closed: So much so that you know something's significant if she actually opens them.
  • Girl Friday: She plays this trope fairly straight earlier on in the series, being one to Dawitsu.
  • Gossipy Hens: Has a gossipy streak, for sure.
  • Hot Teacher: To the human village schoolchildren (the males, obviously).
  • Insistent Terminology: Dawitsu's not her master, or even 'Dawitsu', for that matter... he's always referred to as 'Boss' by Yutaka.
  • Insufferable Genius: Has traits of one.
  • Kawaiiko: Subverted in that she's actually more mature than Dawitsu in attitude.
  • Lipstick Lesbian: She's certainly feminine, and ends up with Patchouli, who's an equally feminine lesbian.
  • Moe: Invoked.
  • Mundane Utility: Yutaka has the almost earth-shattering ability to transform matter. And naturally uses it to make some kickass appliances, an homage to Portal, and many other small, mundane uses.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: She has a penchant for Gothic Clothing, loves a rather creepy Raggedy Andy Doll, and if the animations are to be believed, she has fun with the idea of a vampire apocalypse, as well as unflinchingly extracting organs from people for scientific examination.
  • Official Couple: With Patchouli. She even marries her in book eight.
  • Only Sane Man: Compared to the rest of her household, she certainly is this.
  • Pair the Smart Ones: Ends up with Patchouli.
  • Perpetual Smiler: Yutaka constantly smiles, but it doesn't appear to be hiding anything, and the narration often lets us know whether her current smile is genuine or not.
  • Power of the Storm: Using her matter-altering abilities, she's able to create artificial environments, and even makes a rainstorm in Jean's Magical Education.
  • Rags to Riches: Yutaka left her country of Origin, Japan, to get out of what she considered to be an unstable country in regards to weather, but couldn't find a job or home in England, and thus she was homeless. Dawitsu found her, gave her a home, first as a paid servant, then head servant (to the point where his other servants quit because of obvious favoritism), and finally, Shikigami, and in theory, she's also the beneficiary of the Dawitsu Mansion in the event of Dawitsu's death.
  • Really 700 Years Old: She's one hundred and fifty nine, yet appears to be a young teenager.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Blue to Dawitsu's Red.
  • Security Blanket: Yutaka loves her slightly creepy Raggedy Andy Doll, but doesn't take it with her in public, instead she simply sleeps with it.
  • Servile Snarker: More noticeable the later on in the series you get, very noticeable in her Walfas incarnation.
  • Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness: Loves to talk in this and Techno Babble.
  • Shameless Fanservice Girl: Let's see... she's been in an Elegant Gothic Lolita outfit, implied to have a Joshikousei outfit, and makes all of the women attending her hen party (including herself) into a Hot Librarian outfit, and it's implied she's been in many other cosplay outfits, such as Haruhi Suzumiya cosplay. And she knows Dawitsu likes it, but continues regardless.
  • Shipper on Deck: Likes to play this role later in the series, as she believes her Boss needs a girlfriend badly.
  • Ship Tease: With Dawitsu.
  • Shorter Means Smarter
  • Smart People Play Chess: Yutaka likes to play Chess and Shogi, and is apparently quite good at it.
  • Techno Babble: Out of her and Dawitsu, she is the most prone, but he's not innocent in the category either.
  • The Stoic
  • The Not-Love Interest: To Dawitsu.
  • The Tease: Yutaka openly admits she likes flirting with Dawitsu even though she knows it's wrong.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Dawitsu. She pines over him under Yukari's command, saves his life in Recompense, and unlike Dawitsu, believes if they were to have got married, they still have remained friends in the process. Her loyalty stems from the fact she was once homeless before she learnt magic, and Dawitsu took her in.
  • Witch Species
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Salmon hair in this case.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Yutaka occasionally dresses in an Elegant Gothic Lolita outfit with thigh-highs.

    Jean Franc Levoisier 
Jean Franc is a perfectly normal twenty-three year old human who gets dragged in Gensokyo when Reimu, following Yutaka's advice, decides to visit the outside world to look for a boyfriend and ends up in Paris. Initially, Reimu puts him up at the shrine, but by the end of Dawitsu's Recompense he has become Marisa's apprentice and lives at her house in the forest. He is a level-headed and kind-hearted man, and, despite his slightly unkempt nature, he is quite popular with the ladies, but he isn't really interested in romance, as he's still trying to get over the grief due to the loss of his beloved wife.

  • Accidental Misnaming: Jean is always referred to as 'Michel' by Tokage until chapter 14 of Yutaka's Big Fat Youkai Wedding, despite his many attempts to tell her otherwise.
  • Badass Longcoat: His character artwork seems to make him have something of one.
  • Badass Normal: The closest there is to one in this series, in a similar vain to Marisa (he has to work for his skills).
  • Blunt Metaphors Trauma: As well as the poor french speech, Jean sometimes gets English turns of phrases wrong on account that it is his second language.
  • Cheese-Eating Surrender Monkeys: At first he is quite cowardly, though it's understandable, with him being only a common human in a land full of trigger-happy and extremely powerful youkai.
  • Chick Magnet: Especially towards younger ones, it seems. And crazy Youkai Lizards.
  • Children Raise You: He, along with Reimu and Marisa, all work together to raise Patricia Hakurei, the adoptive child of Reimu's given by Yukari at some point between Yutaka's Big Fat Youkai Wedding and the Epilogue.
  • Conflicting Loyalty: Towards the end of the series, it's fairly apparent that Jean prefers the company of Marisa over Reimu (for legitimate reasons, like Marisa not trying it on with him all the time), yet he feels that because Reimu has saved his life multiple times and brought him into Gensokyo in the first place, he has to spend time with her and remain her friend. In the end, his loyalty to both shows through greatly, and he even assists Reimu in raising Patricia Hakurei.
  • Cool Teacher: Has one in the form of Marisa, and presumably becomes one to Patricia, and according to Reimu, is 'too nice' to her.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: While not crazy, he could be considered a downplayed example given that his wife's death left him with virtually nothing to live for, causing him to alienate himself from his friends and abandon his hometown without so much of an afterthought, meaning he certainly had a greater-than-usual attachment to his wife. He's such a good person that it's hard to see, but he certainly does have a clingy side towards his dead wife.
  • Crusading Widower: His wife died of Motoneurone syndrome, and it's implied that he wanted to Mercy Kill her due to seeing the suffering in her eyes. This left him with nothing in the outside world, and his odd way of coping with his grief led to the alienation of his friends. However, he's a subversion, as despite having nothing to live for, he soon gains something to live for, and is shown to be one of the kindest, if not the kindest people in the series, and his actions are far from motivated by revenge.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Especially in French.
  • Drowning My Sorrows: Seems to do this with coffee in his first appearance.
  • Friendless Background: Subverted. He did have friends, and even offers to set Reimu up with one of his friends, but it's implied that he drove most, if not all of them away with his excessive grieving of his dead wife, Patricia.
  • Frickin' Laser Beams: Gains a penchent for using them coutesy of Marisa.
  • Gratuitous French: Zig-zagged. While he is French, he generally speaks English (because for some reason, people in Gensokyo speak English. It's even lampshaded by the author). Sometimes, though, he speaks French, either to get a snide remark past the radar, or when he gets emotionally worked up. Unluckily, the author doesn't know French, so Jean's French too is a little... broken.
  • Heroic Safe Mode: He seems to be in this when he's first introduced, staying at a Cafe late at night, seemingly to drown his sorrows.
  • Just Friends: How he and his wife started out- Patricia even helped Jean set himself up with a crush when he was in school before Jean realized that Patricia loved him all along, and wanted to be more than friends.
  • I Do Not Like Green Eggs and Ham: His attitude to Marisa's bracket fungus soup with earthworms to taste.
  • The Lost Lenore: His wife, Patricia Levoisier. She died of motoneurone syndrome, and it's implied that Jean drove away his friends with his excessive grieving, even though from his perspective they abandoned him. In the end, he names Reimu's adoptive daughter and eventual successor after her, christening her 'Patricia Hakurei'. It also takes at least twenty years for Jean to even consider romance.
  • Lovable Coward: He is a kind-hearted and likeable man, but when faced with Gensokyo's denizens he really can't do much except run. Well, at first.
  • Mistaken for Pedophile: Metafictional example, though it's most likely the author intended for Jean to be misjudged- many reviewers thought when Jean took Reimu back to his apartment that he was going to try to rape her, but in fact, he just pumps up an air bed for her and lets her stay the night.
  • Nice Guy: Caring, chivalrous and self-sacrificing. Probably the best person in the series.
  • Non-Action Guy: Well, at first.
  • Oblivious to Love: Zig-Zagged. Jean is well aware of Reimu's crush on him, and he is not happy about it. Same with Tokage's, to an even greater extent. However, he's surprised to find Marisa has a superficial crush on him, even though she had subtly been giving away signs of it. In the epilogue, Jean seems to have warmed to Marisa.
  • Official Couple: A last-minute one in the Epilogue- with Marisa.
  • Perma-Stubble: Jean is referred to as having 'rugged stubble' by Dawitsu, and he always seems to be described as having stubble of some sorts.
  • The Philosopher: He is actually somewhat insightful, and certainly has a theological mindset that tends towards Buddhism. This is most likely because he's the reincarnation of Myouren Hijiri.
  • Poirot Speak: Inverted. Jean says simple words in English with ease, but finds complex English words difficult to figure out, and will often suffer from Blunt Metaphors Trauma because of this.
  • Reincarnation: He's the reincarnation of Myouren Hijiri.
  • The So-Called Coward: Smart person would be closer to the mark while he's still a powerless normal human.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Courtesy of Marisa
  • True Companions: With Reimu and Marisa.
  • Two Guys and a Girl: Inverted. Jean is the one guy, and Reimu and Marisa are the two girls.
  • Unkempt Beauty: Jean is certainly this if his luck with the ladies is anything to go by.
  • Wouldn't Hit a Girl: Despite Reimu is pretty damn selfish regarding him, he refrains. Reimu says this is too chivalrous of him... and considering the kinds of people that live in Gensokyo, she's probably right.

    Tokage Reiketsu 
A somewhat mentally unstable Lizard Youkai which lives in the village of Mayohiga. She's obsessed with shipping Dawitsu and Yukari and ends up writing a horrible mess of a fanfiction dedicated to her delusions.

    Hebiko Bimyouna 
A considerably more normal Lizard Youkai that also lives in Mayohiga, and the calm character foil to Tokage. She starts writing fanfiction too, but only because she wants to beat Tokage at her own game, and surprisingly, is rather good at it. 'Bimyouna' is a Nom De Plume surname, and her real surname is unknown.

    The Half-ghosts (Hemi, Demi, Semi and Point-five) 
A set of half-ghosts living in the Netherworld who are good friends and band-mates of Youmu Konpaku. Hemi is lead guitarist, Demi is the bassist, Semi is the Keyboard player, and Point-five is the drummer, with Youmu as the singer. Tropes relating to Youmu as part of their band will also be here.

  • Amicable Exes: Demi and Semi are implied to be this multiple times.
  • Blinding Bangs: Demi.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Hemi. She is the least invested in the music, yet is clearly able to play a killer guitar solo.
  • Cool Shades: Semi and Point-five.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Hemi has purple eyes and hair.
  • Doing It for the Art: Demi, Semi, and Youmu, at least.
  • Dumb and Drummer: Averted. Point-five seems to be moderately smart, if a little flat. She doesn't speak much, however, is responsible for writing at least some of the band's songs.
  • Face of the Band: Youmu, in-universe. She's the singer, and the most famous in the Netherworld out of the band.
  • Five-Man Band
  • Flat Character: All of them are not particularly well-developed, but Point-five takes the cake.
  • Four-Philosophy Ensemble: Hemi's the Cynic, Demi's the Optimist, Semi and Youmu are the Realist, and Point-five is the Apathetic.
  • Freudian Trio: The three most characterized band members- Youmu is Ego, Demi is Id, Semi is Superego.
  • King Incognito: Demi, to some extent. Despite being the bassist, he's also the founder and major writer for the band, though Point-five helps write lyrics.
  • Lead Bassist: Demi, a mixture of type B and type C.
  • Name's the Same: Hemi shares her name with another fictional Half-ghost...
  • Nobody Loves the Bassist: Subverted with Demi. He's the only male of the group, and thus, when male vocals are required, he sings with Youmu, as well as being the founder of the band (as said in the now-removed 'Question Time' fanfic). He's also responsible for writing a lot of their songs, if the epilogue's anything to go by.
  • Odd Name Out: Demi, Semi, Hemi, Point-five and... Youmu?
  • Sex, Drugs and Rock & Roll: Lunasa assumes this of the band. She's actually unfounded, as none of them are like this.
  • Technician vs. Performer: The band is a mixture of both: Youmu, Demi, and Semi are performers, Hemi's a technician, and Point-five is a technician that seems to want to be a performer.
  • The Power of Rock: Youmu thinks her band could help attain 'world peace', as does Demi.
  • The Quiet One: Point-five.
  • Token Evil Teammate: Downplayed. Hemi is only in it to tag along and be famous, but it's clear that without her, they wouldn't be a band.
  • Tomboy: Both Semi and Point-five dress like this. Semi wears a three-piece suit and a bowler hat, and Point-five wears a thick, blue jumper. Both wear sunglasses.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Hemi has purple hair, Semi has dark blue hair with red tips, and Point-five has Blue Hair with black tips.

    Tomasu Dawitsu 
Mateyuu Dawitsu's younger brother, only seen in person in Holiday Edition, although he appears in flashbacks and via phone-call in Dawitsu's Recompense. He has the ability to control marine life, similar to a certain superhero, a point he instantly lampshades. Prefers to be called 'Tom', as his Engrish name was chosen by Mateyuu himself during his last relocation.

  • Aww, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: Tomasu does really love his brother, and it's revealed that in his otaku brother's absence, he went to comicon because he missed him. He also hugs his older brother in the first scene he's in.
  • Big Brother Bully: Inverted. Tomasu, the younger brother, bullies Mateyuu relentlessly, mocking him for being a 'Weeaboo' and genuinely resenting him for keeping Shikigami.
  • Camp Straight: More subtle than the likes of his brother, but he does drive a Porsche...
  • Covert Pervert: Subtly hits on Sakuya when they meet.
  • Good Is Not Nice: Tomasu's moral standards don't allow for 'slavery', and so he disapproves of Mateyuu's keeping of Shikigami. Which makes him slightly hypocritical as he presumably Mind Rapes the fish he controls, although he does go out of his way to make his fish live in an environment as close to nature as possible.
  • Heart Is an Awesome Power: Tomasu Dawitsu has the lame power of controlling fish, just like the equally mocked Aquaman. Oh well, it doesn't matter to him- he doesn't want to be a superhero, just a collector and vendor of extremely rare fish, causing him to build up an immense fortune for himself.
  • Hidden Depths: Tomasu comes off as a callous jerkass, but in fact, he's simply a caring, hard-working man who has a genuine appreciation for all life, even the likes of Jellyfish.
  • Insistent Terminology: While not insistent, Tomasu prefers not to call Youkai 'Youkai', but instead 'supernatural types'.
  • Jerkass: Has a slightly jerkish sense of humor, and is more than a little mean to his older brother, and at times for good reason.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: Tomasu is quite caustic towards his brother, and this seems to be rooted in his brother's employment of servants and lack of hard work, which most likely stems from his being a Self-Made Man.
  • Julius Beethoven da Vinci: Just like Mateyuu, he has been 'relocated' several times by the government, and it's revealed that his name was chosen by Mateyuu, and resents the fact it's Engrish.
  • Mind Rape: Presumably how he catches his various specimens- by forcing them against their will to be caught by him.
  • Not So Different: Tomasu hates Mateyuu for keeping Shikigami, who he refers to as 'slaves'. Tomasu Mind Rapes and keeps countless fish. Mateyuu treats his Shikigami with kindness, making him less morally ambiguous. Tomasu similarly goes out of his way to make sure that the aquariums he keeps his fish in are as close to nature as possible, negating his cruelty also.
  • Odd Friendship: Seems to have this with Yutaka, and has more openly shown respect for her than he does his own brother. He even says that Yutaka is smarter than his brother.
  • Psychic Powers: As mentioned above, he can Mind Rape aquatic life.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: Implied. Tomasu claims to be selling fish to a shifty-looking man with a large mustache reminiscent of a Bond Villain. His older brother assumes this client is buying carnivorous sharks.
  • Refuge in Audacity: Similarly to his brother, if a subject is depressing or upsetting to him, he tries to change the subject by being loud and obnoxious.
  • Refusal of the Call: While Mateyuu seems to find learning combat techniques and spell-cards fun, Tomasu does not care for such things, and instead uses his powers to make a business.
  • Self-Made Man: While Mateyuu got the Dawitsu Mansion, Tomasu inherited a large fortune, and used this to buy an aquarium and establish a small, but elite, high-paying business for himself, making him a far greater success than Mateyuu, who was merely a veterinarian (not that that's anything to be sniffed at).
  • Shark Tunnel: Tomasu's aquarium, given that it has the rarest specimens on earth, also has a 'chondricthyes section', which in plain English means a Shark, Skate, Ray, and Chimaera section.
  • Sibling Rivalry: It's closer to animosity- both he and Mateyuu act like they are being polite to each other, but constantly throw Stealth Insults at each other.
  • Speaks Fluent Animal: Perhaps.
  • Stealth Insult: He loves using these.
  • The Resenter: To some degree. His resentment is actually justified, in a sense.
  • The Unfavorite: Implied to be the case- Tomasu got money while Mateyuu got the family mansion.

    Unnamed Oni Shikigami 
Due to Dawitsu supposedly Outgambitting Yukari and gaining Ran as a Shikigami, Yukari appears later on in the series with this Oni as a Replacement Goldfish. She is notably very quiet.

    Patricia Hakurei 
The adoptive daughter of Reimu Hakurei, only seen in the Epilogue, as she was not born pre-Time Skip, and by the time of the Epilogue, she's thirteen years of age. She was raised by Reimu, Jean, and Marisa, and has a good amount of each in her personality. She is set to be Reimu's successor, but is notably inexperienced.

  • Affectionate Nickname: Patty seems to be hers.
  • Anti-Hero: Rarely. She tortures a Dawitsu Chibi Clone for information on the incident she's solving, but regrets her actions after discovering they only live for a day.
  • Bat Deduction: She seems to have inherited it from Reimu.
  • Boring Invincible Hero: She's this, just like Reimu, and knows it. Ultimately, her battle with Dawitsu and Marisa subverts the trope.
  • Composite Character: It's to be expected when she's been raised by Reimu, Jean, and Marisa.
  • Dead Guy Junior: Patricia Hakurei was named by Jean after his deceased wife, Patricia Levoisier.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Oh so much in 'Twenty Years Later: Reimu's Successor'. Almost every other line she has is sarcastic in some way.
  • Don't You Dare Pity Me!: A recurring attitude of hers with regards to Dawitsu, Yuugi, and Marisa holding back in battle.
  • Freudian Slip: Calling Reimu 'Mum'.
  • Genre Savvy: Patricia doesn't want to be a 'side character'. This wish gets granted in 'Reimu's Successor'. Her Genre-Savviness then extends to knowing she's a Boring Invincible Hero and therefore never really sees her adventures as a threat. This doesn't end well for her.
  • Graceful Loser: After losing to Marisa and Dawitsu, Patricia is out and out happy that she lost, due to not wanting to be pitied.
  • Happily Adopted
  • Has Two Mommies: And a daddy. However, Reimu is clearly her motherly figure.
  • Heartwarming Orphan: She's so damn positive about her relationship with Reimu, and considers her a mother despite mostly calling her 'Reimu'.
  • Hero of Another Story: She has apparently solved a few incidents.
  • Identical Stranger: Patricia looks an awful lot like Reimu despite not being blood-related to her.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: With Dawitsu and seemingly on casual terms with Yukari.
  • I Work Alone: Has to be reminded that she averts this to break down her arrogance.
  • Kid Hero: She seems to be becoming this.
  • Miko: Well, she is the successor to Reimu.
  • Nice Guy: Similarly to her Uncle Jean, she shows that she's kind enough to let Youkai on the shrine grounds even though it's really her duty not to.
  • Not a Morning Person: Inverted. She gets up at five in the morning and goes to bed early, much to the annoyance of Reimu.
  • Not Now, Kiddo: Seems to be on the receiving end of this a lot.
  • Odd Friendship: With Dawitsu. Turns out she actually has a subconscious thing for him, if only there's not much choice in the male department.
  • Scars Are Forever: As a result of her fight with 'the creature' in Reimu's Successor, she now has second-degree burns on her lower legs.
  • Smug Super: She certainly thinks she's talented, but Reimu's fortunately mature enough to bring her down to earth. Her smugness only increases over Reimu's Successor, although a loss to Marisa and Dawitsu helps curb it.
  • Sketchy Successor: Her training is incomplete, and she's three years younger than when Reimu did the bulk of her incident solving, and so she is not quite as skilled as Reimu yet. That said, she kicks the asses of both Patchouli and Yutaka... at the same time. Goes on to kick even more ass as Reimu's Successor progresses.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Begins to develop this as she becomes aware that she's a Boring Invincible Hero.
  • Tsundere: Reimu's attitude seems to have rubbed off on her.
  • Walking Spoiler: It's hard to talk about Reimu's adopted child without finding out that every Hakurei Shrine Maiden has been adopted by their predecessor as an orphan.
  • Wise Beyond Their Years: She's certainly more calm and intelligent than the average thirteen year-old, but has hints of immaturity every now and then.

    'The creature' 
The mysterious antagonist of Reimu's Successor. Doesn't seem to have any particular aims except mindless destruction, and remains invisible most of the time. At first. Once under the control of Utsuho Reiuji, it becomes her dragon and is revealed to be the Gizoid, a robot evocative of the robot of the same name from Sonic Battle, and is a creation of Dawitsu's.
