The Dragonfly Castle (蜻蛉乃城 Kagerō-no-Shiro) is a magical structure that appears in the Haze route of Brilliant Pagoda or Haze Castle. It appeared in Mugenri along with the Dragonfly Army, and was said to announce the arrival of the New Emperor.
The most notable quality of the castle is its ability to fly and land anywhere. Whenever it lands, it sprouts walls all around itself in an enclosure.
In times of intrusion or attack, the interior of the castle is capable of flipping itself around to confuse enemies.
According to legends, the castle appears to the one it deems worthy to be its king, that is the New Emperor. However, Tenkai Zuifeng reveals that the person the castle reveals itself to the "bait" for the true New Emperor and that the legend is "bait for the bait". They also revealed that the castle's last owner was Tsurubami Senri.
The Summonsing Fortress (召喚城郭 Shoukan Joukan) is the haze-covered fortress surrounding the Dragonfly Castle, which was not man-made but sprouted out of the ground when the castle landed on the ground. Besides providing a physical fortress to protect the castle, it also comes with a barrier that prevents entry from the outside, except through the main gate.
Ukifune's Room (浮舟の間 Ukifune no Ma) refers to the throne room in the innermost reaches of the castle. It is comprised of a monochromatic hallway with a single throne that stretches further away from intruders the more they try to approach it. According to JynX, the seat appears quite uncomfortable.
