Since 2002, Flandre Scarlet, everyone’s favorite psychotic vampire, has been terrorizing Gensokyo with her ability to destroy anything, and filling the internet with her theme song, “U.N. Owen was Her?” For a lot of people, Flandre is the first encounter they have with Touhou, and she’s a rather memorable one at that.
Of course, Flandre doesn’t MEAN to terrorize everyone, she’s just a little kid at heart who got handed a very, very dangerous toy, and has her view on the world kind of warped as a result. Of course, at the same time, Flandre is several hundred years old, and she has a very odd mixture of both childishness and maturity. She certainly is more knowledgable than the average kid. She’s as energetic as the role requires, of course, and one of our more expressive characters–especially compared to such characters as Patchouli.
That isn’t to say that Flandre’s path isn’t dangerous. To be blunt…you asked for it. This is easily one of the harder paths, and the most fraught with danger. And Flandre might even have a few surprises up her sleeve, like an alternate form of immortality. Of course, for those of you less interested, or perhaps more intimidated, we’ve included the option of bailing out of the path entirely.
Of course, for those brave of heart, the road ahead is hard, but with some very cautious teaching, and maybe some psychological help from the other residents of Gensokyo, one day, Flandre may be a productive member of society. Well, as much as that means in Gensokyo. And of course, perhaps with some help from Marisa’s friends, there might be room for something beyond pure friendship with Flandre.
