The "Perfect and Elegant Maid". Stage 5 boss of Touhou's The Embodiment of Scarlet Devil and later the third most recurring playable character (being playable in six official games) after protagonists Hakurei Reimu and Kirisame Marisa.
Head maid of the Scarlet Devil Mansion and personal attendant to its mistress Remilia Scarlet despite being the only human in the household. Sakuya possesses mastery of throwing knives, as well as the ability to slow and stop time, making her somewhat a homage to Dio Brando of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. She is zealously loyal to Remilia, and is frequently depicted in doujin berating the gatekeeper, Hong Meiling, though their relationship in canon is generally much friendlier. Due to her Immaterial and Missing Power portrait depicting her with considerably larger breasts than her usual portraits, jokes abound of her using breast padding.
Sakuya's origins are shrouded in complete mystery. Theories run the gamut from her being a Lunarian (and possibly blood-related to Yagokoro Eirin), a female Jack the Ripper, a circus thief, or even a member of the Belmont family.
