The "Wonderful Shrine Maiden of Paradise" and main character of the Touhou series.
An easygoing but dutiful miko and good friend to fellow protagonist Kirisame Marisa; her cool, detached facade belies a sympathetic personality which often wins her the friendship of her former enemies, such as Remilia Scarlet. Reimu takes care of the rundown Hakurei Shrine, which lay near Gensoukyou's border with the outside world and acts as its main portal, and fights using ofuda and her family heirloom, yin-yang orbs.
She has red or brown eyes, medium-to-long brown hair, a red hair bow, and sidelocks worn in hair tubes. She wears a nontraditional miko outfit with detached sleeves and a yellow ascot. She often carries a gohei.
