Reisen is one of the legendary lunar rabbits; she fled from the Moon to Earth as a refugee from the "Lunar War" between the two worlds that began in 1969 A.D. after the Apollo 11 "invasion". Making her way to Gensokyo she was surprised to meet the notorious fugitives Kaguya and Eirin, and asked for asylum in Eientei. In exchange, she works for and protects Kaguya and Eirin.

During Imperishable Night Reisen hid within Eientei to avoid any lunar emissaries that might arrive on Earth and force her to return to the Moon. She was tasked with sealing the doors inside Eientei to ensure that Kaguya could not be found by the emissaries either. She used her power of insanity to stop the heroines from invading Eientei, but was defeated. Reisen's power of insanity comes from her eyes; she uses them to refract and twist waves, disorienting and confusing her victims and deceiving them with frightening illusions.

Perhaps ironically given her insanity-inducing powers, Reisen seems to have one of the more stable and balanced personalities in Gensokyo. In Phantasmagoria of Flower View she worries about Tewi running off and seems more level headed than most other characters. Although she doesn't know what's causing the flower incident, she's decided to investigate by going wherever the flowers are blooming.

During the events in Scarlet Weather Rhapsody she appears in the Scarlet Devil Mansion to ask questions but is beaten by the furious Mistress. Later she inquires into the fate of the Hakurei Shrine and asks if the earthquakes are still going on. Failing to find clues, she later goes to Hakugyokurou to check its condition and to ask Yuyuko about the Shrine's destruction. She tells her about the "completion ceremony" of the new shrine, but when she goes there, the shrine is destroyed. She also meets Yukari, who forbids her to investigate the shrine. Some time after the battle with Yukari, Tenshi suddenly appears and tells Reisen that earthquakes are just "fine".

Also, in Silent Sinner in Blue, her previous owners, the Watatsuki sisters, named another Moon rabbit Reisen after her.

Fun Facts

* Reisen's right hand is often depicted to be making a gun shape, which leads to fan assumption that she shoots danmaku in this manner. Some fans even depict Reisen holding an actual handgun in artwork. Those are all based on ZUN's word that her normal shots were modeled after a bullet. The revelation in SSiB that all Moon Defense Corps. Rabbits are drilled with rifles suggests that Reisen can also use the real thing.
* "Inaba" is a nickname given to her by Kaguya (just like Tewi). Her real name, Reisen, is written in katakana, but in order to fit in with people on Earth, the kanji with the same pronunciation, 鈴仙, was used. The characters for Reisen literally mean something like "Bell wizard", and Udongein "House of plantain flowers.". Additionally, in Japanese "reisen" can mean "Cold War". (see also notes on Reisen's spellcards) while in Germany it means "travels" or "voyages" as well as "to travel". Another meaning for "rei-sen" is "Type-0", as in the Japanese Navy designation for the famous Mitsubishi A6M Zero fighter plane. (see also Imperishable Night: Music) A species of rabbit, called the Deutsche Riesen, may also be where her name comes from.

* "Udonge", the short version of the nickname Eirin calls her by, translates to "plantain flower," whose buds look remotely like rabbit ears.
* Some fans call her "Zayaku" (座薬, meaning 'suppository'), because her bullets look like them. Many, many jokes have been made about this, often of a crude nature. In addition, some species of plantains carry seeds that are useful for constipation and irritable bowel syndrome, similar to the functions of rectal suppositories.
* Reisen's Imperishable Night outfit, with a long-sleeved dark suit jacket, tie and short skirt, is considerably more modern than most of the other characters' and resembles a private school uniform. In Phantasmagoria of Flower View, with her jacket doffed, she looks more like an office intern.
* Reisen's rabbit ears, strangely, always have two accouterment-like buttons on them. It looks like the ears were linked to Reisen's head by buttons. Many fans made fun of this and said Reisen's rabbit ears were artificial. However, Silent Sinner in Blue chapter 8 showed other rabbits in the Lunar Defense Corps for the first time, and they also have the same buttons on straight ears, unlike the floppy ears of "civilian" Earth and Moon rabbits.
* Based on what Reisen says to Mystia and what Lyrica says to Reisen in Phantasmagoria of Flower View, it seems as if Reisen can also manipulate sound waves as well as light waves.
* Reisen's line "I'm just a useless little bunny, only good for my sex appeal," from the doujinshi "Drunkards in Eientei" by Omchicken, has become a popular meme associated with her.
* Reisen's alternate outfit in Scarlet Weather Rhapsody and Touhou Hisoutensoku is a homage to Hatsune Miku from Vocaloid. Her other alternate outfits in Hisoutensoku are also homages to fellow Vocaloids Kagamine Rin/Len, Megurine Luka, Meiko, Kaito, Kamui Gakupo, and even the new Vocaloid, Megpoid Gumi.

We demons believe in punishments ironically related to the crime, so might I suggest feeding her frozen treats until she gets brain freeze or something?

Popsicle? Yes, if I recall correctly, I once gave her a carrot, and she ate it rather suggestively.

Somehow, I find the idea of rabbits sharing sweets adorable, unless she's going to take all of it or something.

But you might want to pocket some, in general, just in case, given what you're going through.

eek ... Need some HP-healing chocolate?

Thank you kindly. Although, I've heard that, so long as the roots are not destroyed, these bamboo plants of Earth grow back fairly quickly. In fact, I believe that the humans of olde had a method of execution that involved... Never mind.

I was thinking of just incinerating through an escape route once I felt bored, but since you're here, it might be a bit more graceful, if I asked you to escort me.

Certainly a good thing.

2 bunny comments in a row. This must be a sign of something.
