Notable Attacks / Techniques:
- Playing instruments without touching them: An ability that each of the Prismriver Sisters possesses. By manipulating the spirits of the instruments and musical notes, they are able to play music without touching their instruments, and they can play music that is impossible to play by hand. This ability is an extension of their original ability to "move things without touching them", an ability common to poltergeists.
- Performing maniac notes: Maniac notes are notes that enhance people's feelings. Upon hearing her music, people's moods become so unnaturally good that they are incapable of speaking or focusing, and all they can do is dance spontaneously. It affects both the mind and soul, making it quite dangerous, though it is normally negated by Lyrica's illusionary notes.
