Taira no Fumikado[edit]

 ◯5面ボス 新帝の盃

  平 文門(たいらのふみかど)
  Taira no Humikado

  種族:ホムンクルス
  能力:魂を遷す的な能力

  その昔、"都"との権力抗争に巻き込まれて両親を亡くした文門を
  祖父が独り身で育ててくれた。

  負債の恩があるその祖父の望みの為、文門はその身の全てを捧げた。
  祖父等にとっての『真の皇』の復活の為、
  錬金術師であった祖父が狩ってきた鬼の体、そして文門の血、
  その他多くの生物の能力や特質を付加させた生命体を創り出した。
  魂の入ってない空っぽの幼く小さなソレに、自らの魂を遷し、
  年月を積み重ねて肉体を活性化、成長、鍛錬させ続けた。

  肉体が『器』として完成したときには、すでに祖父は病没していた。

  文門は仲間と共に計画を続行し、その成就を祖父の墓に誓った。
  祖父と共に作り上げたこの『器』の膂力と霊力。
  そして、代々伝わる数々の『家宝』の効力と魔力を頼りに。

  しかしその計画の途中、信頼できる重要な仲間の一人を失い、
  計画は頓挫していた。


  ―――――これは、闇夜に朧げな月が浮かんでいた日のことだった。
  无現里内にある、波の穏やかな海峡。

  濃霧や蜃気楼の影響で空や陸からの光が届きづらく、
  昼夜問わず年中薄暗いことから『幽暗海峡』と呼ばれていた。

  文門は敵対者の刺客からの目を避けて海峡を渡るため、
  大型船での移動は避け、夜の港の端の方で暇そうに
  ウニを食べていた船頭を雇い、そいつの无帆船に乗って
  海峡を渡ることにした。


  「"都"へ行かれたんで?」

  舟の上での会話は、船頭の方から切り出すことが多かった。 

  「ちょっと前まではこの船もお客さんが多かったんですけどねぇ
   港で見たでしょ? アノおっきな帆船!
   『聯絡船(れんらくせん)』とか呼ばれてましたっけ?
   あれが来てからめっきり客足が遠退きましてね~
   そんでもって今度はあの大橋が出来ちゃうでしょ?
   ここんところ一ヶ月間ぐらいは手紙や荷物ぐらいしか
   運んでませんでしたよー
   同業者もどんどん辞めていっちゃうし、
   もうこの仕事じゃあ食っていけなくなっちゃうのかなー」

  船頭は頼んでもいないのにつらつらと喋り続ける。
  長い間、相当暇を持て余していたようだ。

  「本当は海賊が夢だったんですけどねぇ~、
   けど先駆者がいる以上、船乗り一人じゃなにも出来ないし」

  本来、どちらかといえば客の愚痴でも聞く立場にあるはずの船頭は、
  自分の仕事の愚痴を遠慮なく漏らしていた。

  「渡し舟の船頭をやめたら、何をするつもりなんだい?」

  文門がそう聞くと、"待ってました"といわんばかりの
  笑みを浮かべて、船頭は懐から細い竹で出来た笛を取り出した。

  なるほど、芸の道ってわけね。
  それにしても趣味や仕事に節操のない奴だ。

  「お急ぎでなければ、一曲どうですか?
   いや、別料金をとるなんて言いませんから」

  計画が滞っていた文門にとって、特に急ぐ用事はなかった。
  ここのところ心がささくれていたから、
  少し和ませたほうがいいだろう。
  そう思い、奏でてみるように頼むと船頭は嬉しそうに、
  そして誇らしげに笑った。

  では一曲だけ・・・
  っと言う声は、自信と緊張とが折り重なって少し震えていた。
  人前で吹くのは慣れてないのだろうか・・・?


  ―――その曲は今までに聞いたことのない曲だった。
 
  いささか気味の悪い音が多かったが、不快感は無かった。
  酒の苦味と同じで、その苦味が旨みとなっている。
  様々な辛い経験をした者にのみ分かる味・・・
  暗闇の中、水面に響くその音色は、
  二人以外の誰の耳に届くこともなく、波に呑まれていった。


  別にそれほど気になったわけではなかった。
  いい曲を聞かせてもらった礼儀として
  一応名を覚えておこうかと思い、尋ねてみただけだった。

  船頭が少しばつの悪い顔をしたあとの返答は、文門を驚愕させた。
  『藤原』という響きは、无現里において特別であるのだから。
  そしてそれは文門の『敵』の名でもあった。

  少し間を置いて、文門は返事として自らも名乗ると、
  その船頭も文門の名に驚愕したようで、
  その後しばらく黙り込んだ。


  ―――――今夜は珍しく空気が澄んでいた。
  多少の霧はあるものの、蜃気楼もなく、
  遠く陸の方では小さな明かりが海岸線沿いに鏤められていた。
  それも二人を照らすには敵わず、星々の光だけが
  二人の輪郭をなぞるなか、
  さらに遠くに見える都の仰々しい光は、
  暗闇に慣らされた目には直視し難かった。

  舟に打ち寄せる波は一定の間隔で舟底を響かせた。
  まるでこれから始まる変革の胎動の音のようであり、
  その心地よい脈拍は静寂の時を永く感じさせた。


  二人の間に確認は不要だった。

  文門はふと思い出し、丁度手元にある家宝の一つである
  『小枝』を船頭に渡した。
  この笛はあるべき場所を探していたはずだ。
  自分以外の、誰かの場所を。

  小枝を船頭に吹かせてみると、まるで魂を抜き取るような音色が
  海面の波を震えたてた。
  舟を中心に小さな波紋が広がり、
  当たりに立ち込める薄い霧が晴れていった。

  脱帽した。
  持つべき者が扱えば、道具というのは
  ここまで力を発揮するものなのか?


  「それで、"都"には何の用だったんで?」

  今回もやはり、船頭が話を切り出した。

  「・・・計画の成就の為、ある情報屋を探していた」
  「情報屋ですか? それで、目当ての情報は得られたんですかい?」
  「近いうちに、内側の結界に大きな穴が開き、
   外部から様々なものが流れてくるらしいが、
   その中でも取分け霊魂が多く流れ込み、无現里内に充満するんだとさ」
  「ほぉ、そりゃ例の神社さん達が大変だろうに、
   新人だとか、代理だとか聞きましたが」
  「別にそんなこと知ったこっちゃないけど、
   その霊達を利用しよっかな、ってね」
  「へぇ~、それで、どうなんですかい、状況は?」
  「・・・・・・丁度、駒が揃ったところ」


  これが平文門と藤原伊代真との出会いだった。


  「よーそろー....」

  小さくそう呟く伊代真の過去を文門は知らなかったが、
  その心情はなんとなく分かった。

  帆のなかった伊代真の舟で、
  文門と言う名の帆がようやく夜の順風を受け始めたのだ。



  ―――――ここは幽暗海峡。


  東の空が、少し明るくなってきた。

〇 Stage 5 Boss — The Vessel for the New Emperor

Taira no Fumikado

Species: Homunculus
Ability: Something like transferring souls

A long time ago, they lost both parents due to a political power dispute in the "Capital"
and was raised by their single grandfather.

Fumikado decided to sacrifice their body as an expression of gratitude to help their grandfather to realize his wish.
This wish was to resurrect the "True Emperor".
As an alchemist, he used the body of a demon that he hunted. He added to it the Fumikado's blood,
the vital energy and some special qualities from a lot of other living things to manufacture a new life-form.
Since this new body was young and small, Taira transferred their own soul to it and kept stimulating,
developing and training the flesh of the new life-form for many months and years.

When the body was completed as a "vessel", their grandfather had already passed away.

Fumikado continued his plan with their comrades and vowed to realize it on their grandfather's tomb.
They continued to work on the "vessel", planning to improve its physical and spiritual strength,
by relying on the force of an "heirloom" that would be transmitted through various generations.

However while this plan was being executed, they lost an important and trustworthy partner,
and the plan entered in an impasse.


—————One dark night, there was a faint moon floating in the sky.
Now, there is a strait with gentle waves in "Mugenri".

Regardless of being day or night, since it was gloomy the entire year, it was known as "The Gloomy Strait".
There, the light of the sky barely touches the land due to the influence of something like a heavy fog or a mirage.

To escape from the hands of assassins sent by enemies,
Fumikado decided to go across that strait.
In order to avoid using a big ship to get across, they went to a place near the harbor in the night
and hired a free boater who was eating sea urchin.


"Did you come from the 'Capital'?"

In the conversation between them on the boat, the boater tried to break the ice plenty of times.

"Hey, there used to be a lot of guests taking this boat some time ago...
but did you see that on the harbour? That biiig sailing boat?!
It's called a 'ferryboat', isn't it?
Since that boat appeared here, the customers have almost disappeared.
After that, did you know that they even made a great bridge there?
It's been one month since,
and I was only carrying things like baggage and letters.
Consequently the number of people in this job started to decrease too,
it's already impossible to get enough food with only this job..."

Even without giving any attention to the boater, they kept talking a lot.
For a while, it seemed they had more free time than they knew what to do with. [Translation needs revision]

"Hey, one dream of mine was to become a pirate,
but I couldn't get sailors or anything else I needed."

Traditionally, sailors should be prepared to listen to the grumbles of their clients,
but instead of that, they were revealing all of the problems with their own job.

"If you were to retire from the job of boater, what would you do after that?"

When Fumikado asked that question, they smiled slightly as if thinking "I was waiting for you say that,"
then the boater retrieved a thin flute from their pocket made of bamboo.

"Going for the art path, I see."
Even with that they still looked like a person without integrity on their work or their hobbies.

"If you aren't in any rush may I play one song for you?
Don't worry, it won't add any extra cost to your toll.

Since the plans were already delayed, there was no special reason for Fumikado to be in a hurry.
Lately they were starting to feel irritated,
so it'd be better to calm down a bit.
Therefore, they asked the boater to try and play a song.
They accepted the request happily with a proud smile on their face.

"So... just one song..."
Their voice trembled a bit with a mix of confidence and tension.
Fumikado wondered if they were used to playing for other people....?


———It was a song that they had never heard of before.

There were a lot of notes that sounded a bit off but it wasn't discomforting.
It was like the sake's bitterness, with time such bitterness became good.
It was a taste that only a person who had been through a lot of bitter experiences could understand...
The darkness of the night, with only the two of them there to listen to the water surface's timbre,
while their boat was being swallowed by the waves.


However they weren't feeling this kind of sensation.
They thought that it was a good idea to ask their name and express
their gratitude in a proper way after listening to a good song.

After doing an awkward face, the boater answered their question and surprised Fumikado.
This happened because the name "Fujiwara" is a very special name in Mugenri.
Moreover it was Fumikado's "Enemy's" name.

After a little pause Fumikado said their name as well,
and the boater was also surprised after hearing it.
Then they remained in silence for a moment.


—————That night was a rare night with a clean sky.
There were few clouds and nothing that could resemble a mirage.
Far away in the direction of the shore there were small lights mounted along the shoreline.
But those lights weren't able to reach them,
only the lights of the stars were able to trace their silhouette.
Even with their eyes already accustomed to the darkness of the sea,
the exaggerated lights from the capital that was even further away were making it hard to see.

The ship's bottom was shaking with the waves breaking on it in a well defined pattern.
Its sound was like an announcement of a change.
That pleasant pulsation persisted for a long while.


And there was no need to make it certain between the two of them.

Fumikado recalled one item from their heirloom in their hands
and handed the "Saeda" over to the boater.
They were looking for a better place for that flute.
And that place was with anyone but themself.

It seemed that their soul was being taken away from their body when they asked the boater to try to play the Saeda.
Its timbre was able to make the sea waves shiver.
Small ripples spread around the boat,
and a thin fog rolled in.

They took off their hat.
If handled by the correct person,
should these tools be able to release so much power?


"So, what are you planning to do in the 'Capital'?"

(Translation revision needed in the next paragraphs)
This time the boater was really breaking the ice.

"...I am looking for one specific piece of information to fulfill my plan."
"A piece of information? What kind of information are you interested in?"
"Soon, a big hole will be opened inside of Mugenri's barrier,
and a lot of beings from outside will be able to enter here.
Mixed with them there will be a great flow of spirits, making Mugenri become filled with them."
"Heh, that will be a big problem for those at the shrine.
Do you know something else about these new guys or about that type of information?"
"I really don't know anything about them but, simply put,
I plan to do something with these spirits."
"Heeeeh, then what will you do when you get them all?"
"...At that moment I'll have all the pieces that I need."


That was the meeting between Taira no Fumikado and Fujiwara no Iyozane.


"Move... forward..."

Fumikado didn't know what the past of Iyozane was murmuring very low to them,
but they thought that they knew what kind of feeling it was trying to show.

Then Iyozane's boat, without a sail,
finally started to receive favorable winds after receiving a sail named "Fumikado".


—————Here is the Gloomy Strait.


And the sky is becoming brighter in the east.

Shion[edit]

 ○6面ボス 総体から産まれし個体

  シオン
  Shion

  種族:キメラソウル
  能力:精神と自我を取り込む的な能力

  『ハルジオン』
  外界ではありふれたモノであるこの花は、无現里に一輪しか存在しない。
  数年に一度、不特定の場所に花を咲かせるのだが、
  その際に周辺の生物全てから成長に必要な生命力を吸収する。
  花を咲かせた『ハルジオン』は常軌を逸した生命力を持ち、
  それを原料に不老不死や死者蘇生の薬すらも作れると言われている。
  その為、その効力を悪用・乱用されないように毎回花が咲く前に、
  闡裡神社の者がその芽を伐採することになっていた。

  だが本来、多くの生命力を集めることによって成長する『ハルジオン』が
  今回芽を出した場所は奇しくも文門が復活の儀式を行う予定の場所であった。
  花の正体を知らずに文門達が集めた多くの霊魂は『ハルジオン』に吸収され、
  数多の生命と死霊が混ざり合い、ひとつの人格を作り出した。

  一個体の生物より圧倒的な生命力をもつため、
  霊魂でありながら実体を持つ。

  莫大な智識と経験、価値観と偏見、無垢と邪念、
  その他多くの相反するものを共有しており、
  初めの頃は形を成していなかったが、徐々にそれらは分離していき、
  善の部分は肉体を形成し、悪の部分は霊体を形成した。

  そうなると自然的にニュートラルな存在になるはずなのだが、
  无現里の結界の性質の為か、集まってくる霊魂達は
  少なくとも自分自身を"善"と断言できる者は多くなかった。
  その為、悪の部分が全体の大部分を占め、霊体部分の多くが
  肉体の内部に納まりきらず、体外に溢れ出ている。

  楽天観、厭世観、主観的意見、客観的意見、唯物論、唯心論、
  定説、異説、逆説、等々・・・数多の価値観を持つ声が内から聞こえ、
  シオンの思考のコンサートホールは、
  さながら工事現場のような雑音と騒音に支配されていた。

  だが、それらの声の多くが共通して奏でる旋律がある。
  『世界は悪意に満ちている』
  シオンの中の霊魂・・・人間であれ、動物であれ、植物であれ、
  その中の多くがそう嘆いている。

  そしてその主張は間違いではないと、シオンは思っている。

  なぜなら、世界の縮図である自分の存在自体が、
  悪意そのものなのだから。

〇 Stage 6 Boss — An Individual Born from the Aggregate

Shion

Species: Chimera soul
Ability: Something like absorbing one's spirit and self

"Harujion".
This flower is a type of plant from outside the barrier, there wasn't a single flower like this one in Mugenri before.
This flower blooms only one time in a random place once every several years,
however this time it needed to absorb the vital energy from all of the living beings around it in order to grow up.
The flower that was born from that was called "Harujion", and had an aberrant kind of vital energy.
It is said that if you use this flower as a raw material, it is even possible to create drugs to resurrect the fallen ones or to obtain immortality.
To prevent someone from using this flower for malicious purposes,
every time someone from the Senri Shrine goes there to chop its sprout down.

However, the place where the "Harujion" flower sprouted this time,
after absorbing large amounts of vital energy was the same place where Fumikado was planning to do their resurrection ceremony.
Without Fumikado's knowledge, the great amount of souls they were collecting were absorbed by the flower.
Then a great number of dead and alive beings from there were mixed together, generating a single personality.

Even though it was a spirit, since it owned much more vital energy than a normal creature,
it had also a physical body.

This being had a vast amount of knowledge and experience,
a sense of values and preconceptions, and both purity and wickedness.
In its first moments, it didn't have a fixed shape, but, bit by bit, it started to split itself,
where the "good" side of them created their flesh while the "bad" side gave shape to their spirit.

With that it should have naturally become a kind of neutral existence.
However, due to the influence of Mugenri's Barrier, the majority of the absorbed souls were unable to judge themselves as "good".
Then the bad section of them occupied their entire body,
and a great portion of their spiritually bad part was able to dominate their flesh and started to overflow from their body.

Optimism, pessimism, subjective opinions, objective opinions, materialism, idealism, common theories,
controversial theories, paradoxes and a many other values were talking in Shion's head.
That noise was dominating their head as if they were
in a construction site or in a concert hall.

However, a good number of these voices were playing the same melody in unison,
that "The world is full of malice."
As a human, as an animal, as a plant...
the interior of Shion's spirit was grieving that.

Therefore, Shion had no doubt about that claim.

If their body is a miniature copy of the world,
then they are evil itself.

Tenkai Zuifeng[edit]

 ○EX面ボス 古き独裁者の片割れ

  瑞風 天堺(ずいふぉん てんかい)
  Zuifeng Tenkai

  種族:ヒト
  能力:結界を造る的な能力

  結界屋「アズマテラス」の見習い結界師。

  高名な結界師の血をひいているらしく、
  まだ未熟ながらも数々の業績を残し、その才華を証明している。
  仕事柄、顔が広く様々な種族に知り合いがいるのだが、
  その中でも先代神主とは因縁があるらしく、
  闡裡神社代々の式神であるジンベイとも良く知った仲らしい。

  結界を造るのが得意である一方、結界を直すのはてんで苦手で、
  特に他人が造った結界にはほとんど歯が立たないという。
  そのためか、師匠や先輩から弱点克服の修行(という面目の嫌がらせ)
  の為にと、よく結界修繕の仕事をまわされる。

  今回はどっかの馬鹿な偉人がぶっ壊しかけた
  "内側"の結界の一部を直す、っという大仕事を
  何故か単独で任され、いい加減に嫌気が差してきている。
  だが、破壊されかけた結界の一部は丁度自分が担っていた
  ものでもあるので、繕い直すのは容易いものであったが、
  今回はその結界にちょっとした悪戯を仕組んでみた。

  生兵法は大怪我の基・・・
  それは天堺なりの小さな反抗であったのであろうが、
  それが後に大事となり、
  師匠にこっぴどく怒られるのであるのだが・・・

  それはまた別の話。

◯ Extra Stage Boss — One of the Old Dictators

Tenkai Zuifeng

Species: Human
Ability: Something like producing barriers

They are a barrier master and apprentice of the barrier builders from "Azumaterasu".[c]

It is said that their blood descends from a famous family of barrier builders,
and even with them being inexperienced and having a small number of notable achievements, they're known as a genius.
When talking about work, their family is pretty known and has a lot of acquaintances from various families.
It seems that there is some connection between a predecessor Shinto Priest and that group of acquaintances.
Also it seems that they knew the shikigami Jinbei from the Senri Shrine for lots and lots of generations.

While building barriers is their strong point, on the other hand repairing them is their weak point,
particularly when it was made by another person. In this case, they're almost unable to do that.
Because of that, their master and superiors put them to work hard on barrier repairing as a training
to overcome their weak point (and to attack their prestige).

This time, for some reason, they left Tenkai a great job to be done by them-self.
This job was to fix a part of the "internal barrier" which some stupid powerful person from somewhere broke.
This made Tenkai sick of their superiors.
However, the fixing of the barrier was what they could handle,
so it would be easy to fix it.
Then they had the idea of arranging a very small prank there for them this time.

A little learning can be a dangerous thing...
For Tenkai, will this be considered as a small
insubordination or will it become something bigger?
Will their teachers become mad with them...?

This is part of another story.

EX Sese Kitsugai[edit]

  種族:がしゃどくろ
  能力:地下を知る的な能力、地上を治める的な能力

  妙にデカイ花の近くで自分の骨をいくつか発見し、
  さらに結界の穴から出てくる霊たちを取り込み、なんだかんだで
  本来の力をほんのちょっとだけ取り戻した大妖怪モード。
  けどまだ頭蓋骨が見つかってないのでどうせ長続きしない。
  ずっと遡れば今回の騒動の元凶とも言えるかも。

◯ Hidden Extra Stage Boss — A Great Youkai Who Still Hasn't Quite Returned

Sese Kitsugai
Species: Gashadokuro
Ability: Something like knowing the underground; Something like conquering the above-ground

They found some parts of their skeleton close to a big and strange flower.
Moreover, by some mysterious way, they recovered a bit of their real energy after absorbing
some spirits that were entering by the hole in the barrier and transformed back to their true youkai self.
However, they didn't find their cranium there, so it seems that it won't last for very long.
If we were able to trace back forever in the time, maybe we would also say that they were the main culprit of the this time's riot.

This flower can realize such desires for you.

As for the compensation?
Such a thing is open for you to choose.

Notes[edit]

  1. In Japanese, they're called an "oseibou" jockey. An oseibou is a New Year's gift, and here it refers to an eggplant, which is seen as good luck for the year to come.
  2. In Japanese stand-up comedy, a "straight man" (tsukkomi) is the one who corrects and/or berates the errors of the airheaded "funny man" (boke).
  3. lit: "The god that illuminates the Eastern Japan". Which is related to the Tōshō-gū shrines.
