Shinkuu (深空) is an honorary member of Lapxus and the Stage 1 Boss of Emergency Everyday.
Shinkuu is from Emergency Everyday, which is a game that predates Evanescent Existence. The character was created by Daijin and not by JynX.
His full name is Shinkuu (深空), which simply means "deep sky". In I Tried a Touhou-Style Bullet Hell Shmup Made by My Wife, the video which showcased BIGBOSS's playthough of Emergency Everyday, Daijin states that "Shinkuu" is another pseudonym that BIGBOSS refers to himself as, making Shinkuu a self-insert character of sorts.
Influences for future Len'en characters
Many of Shinkuu's designs and concepts would eventually be used for the characters created by JynX for the Len'en Project:
- Fujiwara no Iyozane: Much like Iyozane, Shinkuu is a person who had recently died, but came back to life by certain means. Differences to Iyozane include dying by way of starvation upon being spirited away to the "2D world", as opposed to being assassinated by a family member, and having his methods of resurrection be directly stated, instead of being brought back to life by an as-of-yet undisclosed method. Shinkuu is also stated to be a vengeful spirit, instead of a human like Iyozane is.
- Shion: Shinkuu, like Shion, is a supernatural figure who has some sort obsession with eating; Shinkuu died of starvation and claims to still be hungry for food in death, and Shion frequently eats souls to keep themself powerful and at ease, as well as note if someone's soul is considered tasty or good-smelling.
