Appearance

A rare blonde Zashiki-warashi with a petite figure and porcelain skin. She typically dresses in lolita attire, except with heavily traditional Japanese clothing influences. When outside, she has a Victorian-inspired parasol.

Personality

History

Plot

The young girl arrives at the financially-struggling Moonflower one day because she smelled azuki and wished to eat some. Aoi had just finished her first attempt at making azuki milk gelatin and freely offers it. The young girl finds the food delicious. The two of them also talk of Aoi's ambition to keep the eatery running. In the end, the young girl gives Aoi her temari ball as a token of her thanks for the azuki. In the following days after the young girl's visit, the Moonflower is packed with guests, which saves the eatery from an early demise.[3]

Powers & Abilities

Arguably the strongest character shown, she is capable of high-leveled "spiriting away" and "paralysis" techniques.

Spiriting Away

Under multiple instances, Ougon-douji was able to control Aoi Tsubaki to follow her commands. This leads to two separate abductions while others around her were incapable of doing anything. One instance is when Aoi and Ginji went to the Eastern Lands, and Aoi sees Ougon-douji in the crowd, ultimately leading Aoi to an underground storage room. The second instance when Orio-ya's air ship comes to pick Ginji up, and Aoi's disobedience leads to her being spirited away again.

Paralysis

To stop a target from moving, Ougon-douji is capable of preventing the target from moving, as well as being able to put them to sleep.

Trivia

  • The red color of the azuki bean has been thought to have magical powers and could herald good fortune and ward off evil[4]. Perhaps it comes as no surprise, then, that a zashiki-warashi yokai, who heralds good fortune, was drawn to Aoi by such lucky food.
  • While douji (童子) can simply mean child, which suits Ougon-douji's appearance, a douji is also a type of noh theater mask representing a young child with a fairy-like quality of eternal youth.[5]
