Youki is an enigmatic character who has yet to make an actual appearance in any Touhou game. He was the gardener for the Saigyouji clan at Hakugyokurou before leaving it to his successor and student Youmu Konpaku. It is thought that he, too, is a half-phantom. No one currently knows his whereabouts.

Fun Facts

  • Youki can mean "container", "vessel", or "season".
  • The characters for Konpaku mean simply "Soul."
  • Although both "Kon" (魂) and "Paku" (魄) are "soul", their elements are different. "Kon" stands for a mental soul, which is separated from a body as soon as human dies and ascends to Heaven; "Paku" is a physical soul, which remains in the body a few days and goes back to the Earth. In this case, "Kon" is Youki's phantom half, and "Paku" is human half. Maybe "Konpaku" is not only be a surname but a feature of his race.

The former gardener of about 300 years, Konpaku Youki, suddenly retired into enlightened hermitude one day, leaving a very young Youmu as his successor. As Youmu's sword technique is still unrefined, she tirelessly undergoes daily training to perfect it. The whereabouts of the man who should be the current gardener are unknown, even to Youmu. She considers it as just another one of his lessons.
