Main Profile

Elis is a devil of some kind that Reimu Hakurei encounters while in the Ruins of Vina, in Makai. However, since she has no profile and exchanges no dialogue with Reimu, nothing else is known about this enemy.

Character Basis


Her name is Elis. The name "Elis" comes from Elijah, which is Hebrew for "The Lord is my God".

More Information

Elis is one of the only PC-98 characters whose hair and eyes are not the same color. The only other PC-98 characters with this are Konngara and Shingyoku's "male" form. This is due to the 16-bit color limit the other PC-98 characters have.

Notable Additions

• The background music for 'Makai Route stage 11~14' is called 'Oriental Magician'. This later becomes Marisa Kirisame's title.

• Elis is the first boss in the Touhou Project series to use a "magic circle", the (now scarlet) circle used by many bosses of the Windows series games.

• Elis and Kikuri share the same theme called "Magic Mirror".


Elis bat

Elis as a bat.

Elis is speculated to be a vampire, due to her ability to turn into a bat, her big bat wings and her title as the "Innocent Devil".
