The weather in the sky, the stability of the earth, and the hearts of man are all in the palm of my hand. Show me the weather with which you defeated so many youkai!
~ Tenshi to Reimu


Born Chiko Hinanawi, she ascended alongside her parents when they became Celestials, and chose to rename herself Tenshi. However, as she did not earn ascension herself, she is considerably less enlightened than her peers and quickly grew bored and frustrated with Bhavaagra. This is what prompted her to cause chaos in Gensokyo, having watched several of the incidents its inhabitants have caused and deciding that they must be lots of fun.

Standard Equipment: The Sword of Hisou and Keystones of various sizes

  • Sword of Hisou: The legendary Sword of Hisou is a relic that can only be wielded by Celestials. It has the power to identify the spirit of an opponent and adapt to better exploit their weaknesses, and can absorb spirits and chi from its surroundings, converting it into energy. It can even cut up this spirit, reducing it to a fine, red mist that can be used to influence the weather. Tenshi can draw upon its energy for long-ranged attacks and to enhance her strength and durability. It can even be used to fire a high-power laser formed from all the energy that Tenshi has taken from her surroundings.

Intelligence: While Tenshi is naive and overconfident, she has knowledge on many Celestial subjects. She still lacks self-awareness and tends to act irresponsibly, though. Though she can wield the Sword of Hisou, her swordplay is wild and undisciplined, relying more on sheer power and speed than technique.

Weaknesses: Tenshi is overconfident, naive, and gravely lacking in self-awareness.

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

Manipulating the Earth: Tenshi has the power to control the earth and cause natural land disasters such as earthquakes, sinkholes, and landslides. While her power is mostly limited to causing natural disasters, she has shown the ability to raise all the ground around her in the atmosphere and fight upon it as if it were stable ground. In addition, as a member of the Hinanawi family, she can handle Keystones, holy stones that can be placed into the ground to suppress earthquakes and removed to cause them. The destruction caused in this way is proportional to the size of the Keystones. Tenshi uses her Keystones in other ways, however, such as platforms, and in combat as danmaku or simple bludgeons.
