Para (パラ) is the soul of the homunculus whose body Taira no Fumikado now inhabits, now residing in Fumikado's original body. They are the Stage 5 boss of the Haze route in Brilliant Pagoda or Haze Castle.
- Stealing knowledge
Para has the ability to extract knowledge from any source, but with certain drawbacks. They can only withdraw a limited amount at a time, and the difficulty of doing so depends on the amount of knowledge within the source. The more knowledge there is, the more difficult the task is.
Although it was never explained why, time has stopped for Para's body, making them effectively unaging and immortal.
A possible origin for their name may be derived from Paracelsus, a Swiss alchemist of the German Renaissance who first theorized an outline for creating a homunculus. Notably, Para's name may derive from Paracelsus's books "Volumen paramirum", "Paragranum" and "Opus paramirum", which are collectively called the Three Para Works (パラ三部作) in Japan. It may also be a short-form of "parapara" (パラパラ), an onomatopoeia meaning "flipping through a book", as suggested by Rei's Twitter.
Chouki was the one who removed the seal on their body, reawakening them. As an expression of gratitude, Para serves under them.
Their soul inhabits Fumikado's original body, as Fumikado's soul is in their body. Para resents Fumikado for sealing their body away after the procedure.
- Para lacks a common phrase in their theme that most people associated with the Youkai Alliance have, this is because they had their own separate reasons for joining other than following Chouki.
