My favorite quality of hers is her empathy. She's among the few characters that would immediately help a human she came across as opposed to not giving a fuck at best and eating them alive at worst.

Loyalty towards the goddesses. Especially with the degree of control she has, she could tell Suwako to explain herself. She's more like family with them rather than a boring, absolutely obedient servant like Sakuya, Youmu or Reisen.

Described in Symposium of Post-mysticism and has her spell cards elaborated upon The Grimoire of Marisa. Otherwise she appears in Wild and Horned Hermit as an important character.

Anyway, she knows her place and is all too willing to learn the ropes of Gensokyo, of course after a little beatdown in MoF.

Alright, I was pretty much trying to get a response or two to know /jp/ current stance on her, so not going to push it much further. Unless you do.

Her danmaku and spellcards are pretty awesome and varied. She has a degree of control over elements coutesy of Suwako and Kanako's earth/sky manipulation (the water and wind attacks), can summon them for limited attacks (Soku) or gain a shottype and bomb that is a tribute to the powers of either (UFO) and finally, she has typical miko exorcism stuff like amulets and even exploding fortune packets from her shrine (Soku). Find me a character that can beat that variety.

And it's sad that her personality is in contrast with the goddesses associated with her.
They're too scheming for her own good.

Indeed, a shame. Kanako should have sent her to check upon Okuu in SA as a third playable instead of make her loaf around and leave preventing the worst PR disaster she could ever made to Reimu, Marisa and their youkai buddies.

Still, she provides them with a friendly face, just like Meiling does for SDM. And there *is* a lot at stake if the shrine does indeed lose every last bit of faith (pic related) so she has an additional incentive to work hard.

Well, she is against all that scheming. She beats up Suwako when she gets fed up with all her shadowy, behind the scenes crap.
I wonder...if things went to far, and Suwako and Kanako launched some crazy and really fucking dangerous scheme, and she actually knew about it, would Sanae fight against them?

Seeing as Suwako and Kanako's species are "god" and not "human god" or something, I'd assume the former. Sanae is part god, part human.

Arahitogami (現人神, living gods) are humans who have become deities while still alive. Since they are both human and god, an arahitogami is not dependent on faith to maintain their existence; without it they will simply return to being a normal human. Many living gods originated as priestesses, who obtained faith from their gods' miracles being mistaken for their own.

She's explicitly mentioned as a human. Only that she can harness faith people invested in her to perform miracles.

I like Patchouli's spellcard variety more.

>she can harness faith people invested in her to perform miracles

So she's like main character that will win no matter what if people trust or cheer on her. Even against something impossible there'll be always "unexplained bullshit", "plothax" or in her case "miracles" that will make her win like typical MC of shounen shows, except that in her case it's explained with her ability.
Just like Goku and Spirit Bomb.

Interesting, she has that characteristic yet she's not the main character. In fact, she's in contrast with Reimu who more akin to an anti-hero to me. Along with her affection of mecha and otaku-culture, she could be a Tokusatsu incarnate.

I guess I just found my headcanon.

I know.
I'm just thinking If I make some kind of comedy doujin I will depict Sanae as typical MC that believe "I will win because people trust in me", might as well wearing typical Tokusatsu attire, but always bested by Reimu who is an anti-hero.

Besides, after a long time seizing the Youkai Mountain and receiving faith from its residents I guess she has enough faith to create miracles now.

Reimu isn't a god. I'm pretty sure her power has nothing to do with faith and nothing to do with the reason she wants faith. Sanae's goal is to accrue faith to her shrine's goddess(es), not to herself. They aren't just power hungry, no?

I dunno how much faith she actually has. Most of it goes to Kanako/Suwako, I figure.

Still, she won't give up!
