    Default Setting Information - The Land of Fantasy

    This post summarizes public information pertinent to the Touhou Project, the residual rights to which are held by ZUN, of Team Shanghai Alice. In accordance with express restrictions placed on the open content, at no point does this post discuss the endings of any Touhou Project property. Any inaccuracies are purely mistakes on the part of the author of this post.

    Setting - Welcome to the Scarlet Devil Mansion
    The world fragment of Gensoukyou, the Land of Fantasy, lies parallel to our contemporary Earth. It is a place where all manner of fairies and other magical things may be found. This is a story set in one particularly gloomy, but not altogether unhappy, corner of Gensoukyou.

    Within the Land of Fantasy, on an island in the fairy-haunted Misty Lake lies the aptly-named Scarlet Devil Mansion. The simply-designed gated courtyard, clock tower, and two wings belie the extensive nature of the dark red manor house. Many subterranean floors extend below the visible architecture. Among the Mansion's various features, it boasts a magnificent library.

    The Mansion's design appears to be Edwardian, maybe earlier, but it was built not that many years ago, when the island came into the possession of the two Scarlet sisters, noble immigrants to the Land of Fantasy from Transylvania. It holds a large household staff, almost entirely composed of fairies. The Mansion rarely welcomes uninvited visitors.

    NPCs - a Few Notable Inhabitants of the Scarlet Devil Mansion
    • Remilia Scarlet, the Lady of the Mansion - Remilia is a vampire who has existed since the European Middle Ages. She is said to have about enough power to manipulate fate itself, and is consequently used to having her way. Vampires are among the strongest and fastest of creatures, and Remilia is a vampire noblewoman. Very few are known to have enough power to rival hers.
    • Izayoi Sakuya, the Housekeeper - Chief of all the domestic staff, Sakuya wields authority second only to Remilia's. She is one of the very few, possibly the only, human living in the Scarlet Devil Mansion. Her immense array of duties, which includes acting as the mansion's chef and as lady's maid to Remilia, constantly seem on the verge of overwhelming her, but she perseveres in her duties every day.
    • Patchouli Knowledge, the Tutor-in-Residence - Also known as the One Week Wizard, Patchouli is a magician who has transcended her human mortality, but seemingly at the cost of her constitution. Retained by Remilia, with whom she is friends with, she holds the only position that is not directly under Sakuya's authority, being more like a permanent guest. She has taken over the library as her private lair, and is essentially its unofficial librarian. Patchouli is highly respected for both her power as a magician, and the fact that she is the only person who regularly interacts with Remilia's younger sister Flandre.
    • Hong Meiling, the Gatekeeper - Another non-native, Meiling comes from China. Her exact nature is unclear, but she is known to not be human, and her proficiency as a martial artist is clearly at an inhuman level. Meiling is the only inhabitant of the Scarlet Devil Mansion that most outsiders have any expectation to see.
    • Flandre Scarlet, the Mistress's Younger Sister - From the perspective of centuries, there is hardly any difference between the ages of the two Scarlets, but while Remilia takes an active role in the management of her household, Flandre has no duties whatsoever. Not venturing outside her room, Flandre is nevertheless feared for having nearly enough power to destroy whatever she pleases. Patchouli is thought to be the only person who regularly visits her.
