Meimu is a Chinese fan-made Touhou Project character created by AUER, created as a result of the outcome of several Touhou Popularity Polls in which Reimu Hakurei lost each time, prompting the creation of the character.
Meimu was originally a formless entity that was neither human nor youkai, who was given her current physical form by Yukari Yakumo in the image of the shrine maiden, Reimu Hakurei. Due to her nature as a formless entity, Meimu is able to alter her physical form to either a child-like or adult appearance, with each form having their own distinct personalities; for instance, while child Meimu considers Reimu to be a close friend, adult Meimu treats Reimu with much more hostility and aggression.
