Just after the events of Imperishable NightBackground Link: Touhou wikiPersonality:
Her childish appearance is a testament to the decline in the social status of insects. Because of her species and ability, Wriggle is easily offended when people insult them or consider them nothing more than a nuisance. She tends to be aggressive and will lash out if provoked, if someone insults her or poses a threat she will attack without hesitation. However, Wriggle does consider herself a leader to the insect population and understands that unprovoked violence will ultimately end badly for them. Instead she tries to show people how helpful and important insects are but by no means is she a pushover.
Wriggle tends to live a rather fleeting life, it’s hard for her to consider things in the long term and she rarely holds on to information she no longer has use for. Unfortunately this often means that she doesn’t learn from her mistakes. Having no long term goals or aspirations besides increasing the reputation of insects, she tends to enjoy the simple pleasures in life such as sweet honey or conducting an orchestra of crickets and cicadas. The life-span of insects is short, so it seems only natural that the life-span of her endeavours is short too. Despite being a little slow and having a short memory, Wriggle is by no means stupid. In fact she can be quite crafty at times, utilizing her ability to provide services to make a little money or mobilize insects in a way that’s actually quite dangerous.
No matter how much people call her disgusting or look down on her for being an insect she’s still proud of who she is, perhaps almost to the point of egoism. Her determination seems limitless, although it’s mostly because she forgets to give up. She’s the kind of person who would prefer to be hated rather than ignored but she would still rather be liked than hated. Despite her aggressive nature she can display and caring and considerate side, if people act kindly to her she’ll very likely be kind back. At the same time, if accommodating someone means that she has to completely change herself and her ideals she won’t budge and inch.
A tomboyish girl who takes things in her stride. Her androgynous appearance is harmonious with the fact that in some types of fireflies there is little difference between the males and the females. Wriggle herself doesn’t seem to care much whether people see her as one or the other, she has more important things to worry about. She’s particularly weak to the cold and tends to be less energetic in winter. Her tolerance to chemicals, especially those used in insecticides is quite low. For her, she’s happiest in a natural environment where the insect population can flourish. Having devoted her life to them, she’s come to understand that insects might not become a dominant species in the same way humans or youkai are but she often feels that their importance is so overlooked and hopes that one day people will understand just how vital they are.Abilities:Firefly Youkai
Due to her nature as a firefly, flight comes easily to her. Her antenna means that she can get a general sense of the area around her so it's hard to sneak up on her unless you're really quick and take her by surprise. However, it doesn't seem like she's bio-luminescent.Danmaku
The ability to to create elaborate patterns of bullets, be they magic or insect. As well as standard unnamed patterns she also has the ability to use spell cards. Commonly used spell cards are listed here and here (1-1, 1-3, & 1-5), and she also possesses a powerful last word spell card.Ability to the extent of manipulating insects
She has the power to cause swarms of insects and control their behaviours. Insects is used in the loosest sense of the word, she can control bugs such as spiders and centipedes as well. The ability only extends to manipulating existing insects, she cannot create them out of thin air.Sample Entry:
Of course she'd be dubious about the place since day one but now it was really starting to get on her nerves. It wasn't the people, the lack of her home or even the weird collar she'd been forced to wear. No, it was the definite lack of any kind of insect. It just wasn't natural and it was driving her up the wall. She knew there was a garden and she knew there was a field, she'd definitely heard people talking about it but for the life of her she just couldn't find it.
Flying up from the bottom she'd soon forgotten where she was going, caught up trying to find the floor she was sure she'd passed until she woke up, wondering if had been a dream. Flying down from the top was no good, mainly because she soon found she lost the ability to fly. Not to mention that one island that always distracted her, it was so far down it was hard not to leer over the edge. Not today though, today Wriggle was determined to find her ever loyal subjects and with no patience to spare she burst out of the elevator and into the cafeteria."Hey!"
she called out, trying to get everyone's attention, not that it was hard to miss her practically breaking down the door. "I know there's a garden here! There are insects there, right?"
Surveying the few people on the floor she put her hands on her hips and tried to look as confident as she could."So who's going to help me get there?"
