She probably came with the rest of the SDM crew from Europe. I'd like to think that she was Scottish (you know, because she kind of looks like it anyways) and had that theme going for her because she lived with her parents on some British colonies in China for most of her life.

They went back to Scotland after a while but the Chinese culture had a great effect on her and became a big part of who she was. She especially liked martial arts and she kept practicing and got good at it. She left home to travel around Europe and fight other people to hone her skills, taking up her Chinese name "Meiling" during her travels.

Meiling learned many things about fighting on her travels and got even better at it. Eventually she reached the point where it was no longer a challenge fighting normal people so she started going after creatures from myth instead. Her martial arts reached a supernatural level after fighting many monsters and while she didn't know it at the time, she even became one herself.

>> No.9083635


She continued traveling and found herself in a remote region of Romania. There were rumors of a strange mansion in the forests with a vampire living in it so she decided to go fight that vampire. After a few days of searching she found this mansion and proceeded to bust in and fight the vampire. To her surprise, the vampire was just a little girl. But she knew better than to hold back. She fought this vampire with all of her strength and still lost. Meiling thought that she was going to die there but the vampire spared her saying that she was already "full" and to her surprise, the vampire offered her a job as the gate keeper. The vampire claimed that while she was strong enough to kill intruders herself, she would rather not be disturbed in the first place. Meiling was reluctant to take the offer but she was also promised plenty of strong people to fight if she stayed so she thought it couldn't hurt to stay a while and she would just leave it was boring.

And so she stayed and she got the challenges she was promised. Apparently the vampire inside had many strange enemies for many strange reasons. She came to enjoy her work there and stayed. She even started tending to the gardens on slow days. One day the vampire decided to move their entire mansion to a different country. Meiling was excited about the idea of new opponents to face and looked forward to it. She hoped that the vampire would make even more enemies in this new land...

That's certainly one of the more interesting ideas I've heard.

My original ideas pretty much got swept out to sea once I started looking into just when she could have possibly learned her Tai Chi.

The late 1800s. Which kinda threw a wrench into things.

Oh there's nothing wrong with the 1800s. That was just a hwee bit later than I originally had planned out.

I've since changed things up of course, and frankly I'm happier with what I have now. All that's really left is to learn quite a bit more about Chinese culture and history so that I can get a better idea of Meiling's experiences through her life.

Well on one hand we've got Remilia apparently worrying over Sakuya's mortality. Talking about becoming one of the Hourai in IN's Ex-Stage, and (admitted total asspull here) it sounds like this is a discussion they've had a few times likely involving Remilia offering to turn Sakuya into a Vampire.

On the other hand, we have Remilia talking about how Sakuya has been around for so long it doesn't feel right to call her human.

So, whatever, either one works really.

Oh well yes, that's what I'd always intended, just that the dates had to be shifted wildly to account for the later time period when she could've learned it. As for what her other martial styles might be, that's something I still have to look into.


Honestly I've kinda just stopped trying to account for how bizarre her appearance would actually be to Chinese folks. I mean, Sanae is from the modern outside world, has bright green hair, and I can only assume she wasn't considered a freak of nature.

That's a good question. I don't really know.

For the most part it's just a vague general idea of events and the order they take place in, with the "deadline" of sorts being 1884, the year she meets Remilia in Shanghai.

An interesting look at Meiling.

I'm glad that I am not the only one that sees her as not being oriental, as in her theme description ZUN says he made it with a French Colony in China in mind. That's why it doesn't sound too oriental.

From that and her looks, I always saw her as a European that grew up in China.

I guess such reasoning would make sense to dispel the idea of her being European, but it might be a name she adopted from her Chinese identity. Maybe it's not her real name.
Sakuya has a Japanese name, but I always thought that it was a fake name as well and that she is also European. I was always suspicious of her.
But maybe I am just silly and make up weird backgrounds for Touhous.

Oh I still see her as Chinese. Like I said in my post, I just liked the idea of the time/place of her meeting with Remilia being relevant to her theme.


To give an idea of said series of events, I think I had it go:

"Birth", first peasant years, expulsion, wandering peasant years, soldier years, mercenary years, living alone in the forest years (low point of her life by a longshot), meets her future master, martial arts training years, master dies, wandering years (this is probably the least-developed part so far), learning tai chi, then finally ending in Shanghai where she eventually encounters Remilia.

This particular take on Meiling is a youkai who came to exist without any actual abilities or powers of any sort. The only thing she's ever had that she could rely on is being able to be seriously wounded and just grow back together again. She spends the first half of her life really just trying to survive and finding a place to live among humans simply because she has NO IDEA what else she could possibly do.

For the most part I really just like the idea of exploring the world through a youkai's eyes. She's really just...lost. Directionless. She tries to imitate humans, living among them, living like them, and it always just ends up falling apart in one way or another. Meeting the man who becomes her Master is a gigantic turning point for her.


Pretty much. Though I usually have Sakuya stay behind at the SDM because she doesn't trust anyone else to keep an eye on it. Though I also have Remilia have a bit larger (and competent) servant staff at this point in time as well. They all eventually die off from old age and she never bothers to replace them.


There's nothing wrong with being a bit wild with your ideas. Meiling especially since she's such a complete mystery.

dat loner got it right. Meiling is a youkai, she is supposed to look NOT like local hillbillies. Besides, there are fables about ones that resemble her.

But like >>9092241 said, it's kinda silly to go by hair color in this kinda stuff. I mean yes, there are fables about red haired demons in China. But there's plenty of other unusual/flat-out unnatural hair colors present in Touhou besides.

But hey, if you wanna run with it, be my guest.

I mean, and he probably means, that this hair and eyes thing is something that can give a ground for a hand-made background. Just like that guy with his welsh idea (aren't irish, not welsh, considered as stereotypical gingers?) used it.
A root for theories, that's all. They feel better when there is something to base them on.

Why GIF?

Wowee, who did she try to take that from?

When I think Irish I think Orange hair, When I think Scottish I think Red. Probably inaccurate (and hardly a difference) but that's imagination land for you.

Sun Quan was said to have a red beard, so it's not too unlikely that Meiling could be a Chinese woman with natural red hair. It's all dependent on the mix of genes.

>> No.9094521

Some central asians have red/reddish hair and light eyes, it's not entirely impossible for Meiling to be chinese and have natural red hair, specially if she was from the west.

However, I still think it's more likely to the fact that she is a yokai.

I knew dynasty warriors had some degree of realism with its funky looking characters!

>> No.9095607

I am now going to pretend that everyone in dynasty warriors is a youkai.
