Eirin, the Mastermind of the Moon is a custom Touhou champion in League of Legends.
Notes and Nonsense
Eirin is a Lunarian, who is also a genius pharmacist, able to manufacture any imaginable medicine within a short time. She is one of the founders of the Lunar Capital and is older than Tsukuyomi, the Moon god. She is the mentor of the two Generals of the Lunar Defense Corps, Yorihime and Toyohime. One of her best (and worst) works is the Hourai Elixir, which gives Immortality, drank by Kaguya, Mokou and Chang'E. Eirin is devoted to her mistress Kaguya and has a servant named Reisen. Personality wise, she's fairly pleasant, but dislikes fools and is rather impatient and condescending if people aren't sharp enough to follow whatever she says. Also, she lacks general common sense as she's not a human being.
"The least of calculations breaks through the highest of space engineering. Should a person wish to break through and develop new technology, it is necessary to abandon it."― Yagokoro Eirin
- Passive: As a prodigy pharmacist, Eirin's passive allows her team to buy one of her three consumables - Jade Rabbit Incense, which works as a healing sight ward; Butterfly Dream Pill, which gives temporary attack speed and cooldown reduction when consumed; and the Hourai Elixir, which is a rather expensive consumable.
- Q: Harassment or zoning tool. Do note that this ability will NEVER damage the intended enemy target directly, unless the enemy moves to touch the lasers. The beams can bounce inside Galaxy in a Pot twice before disappearing, otherwise it'll just disappear at maximum range.
- W: An ability that heals allies when you attack, style. If Eirin's attack target is standing inside the galaxy, the entire galaxy acts as a healing medium for her allies.
- E: AoE damage over time. The damage from this ability isn't important, it's the follow-up that makes this ability high in utility. Lasers bounce twice inside this galaxy and heals applying inside, like a small universe within itself.
- R: A teamfight-CC ultimate. Originally I wanted to make this a skillshot-skillshot, with the landing range equal to the distance it takes for the arrow to disappear, but it's too complicated and unviable. Needless to say, the lunar magic that crashes a meteorite or a mechanical satellite from the skies - rule of cool. Lore wise: In the year 1969, NASA declared war on the Lunarians as Neil Armstrong plants the American flag, claiming the moon for humans. Expeditions from Apollo 11 to Apollo 17 are actually highly-skilled human assassins sent to remove the top generals. Apollo 13 never managed to reach Moon, because it was shot down by Lunarians, and truth is only known to them.

Eirin supports her allies in a different way, by selling better consumables than the shop offers and a powerful AoE kit with Galaxy in a Pot and Omoikane's Device. Understanding how the lasers reflect in an expanding galaxy and using it to max potential separates the great from the good Eirins. Her toggle is a heal, making her hard to kill without focus, but only works if she attacks. Canonically she is a very powerful being who has existed long before Tsukuyomi is born and her power is very high, but she purposely sets a skill limit on herself, right below Kaguya out of respect.
