Mononobe no Futo
Taoist practitioner claiming to be a shikaisen
Servant of Toyosatomimi no Miko
Manipulation of feng shui
Ten Desires (2011)
Futo is generally thought to be a shikaisen, meaning that she was once a hermit who attempted to surpass the physical lifespan of a human by taking on the qualities of the dead. She essentially abandoned her body and transferred her soul into an object (said to be a plate). As a shikaisen, she is able to take on a great number of forms, but she prefers the traditional look she had when she was alive, as opposed to Toyosatomimi no Miko's decision to go with a more modern form. Futo is described as being gentle at heart, but unable to adapt to modern times - and modern Gensokyo in general. Even in ancient times, she clung to Taoism rather than Buddhism, indicating a dislike of change and a favoring of old ways.
