Marisa Kirisame is a normal human witch, living in the land of dream thoughts – the gensokyo – on the border between the human world and the spirit world. She is one of the main characters in the Project Shrine Maiden series of games.
Marisa is a tomboyish selfish character, spending her time stealing books from Patchouli's library, and annoying Reimu Hakurei, when she's not off battling spirits and other daemons for her personal purposes.
Marisa debuted in the second game of the series, The Story of Eastern Wonderland, as the helper of Mima, the final boss. In that game she was a redhead, but has ever since been blonde, and have become a recurring playable character in all subsequent Shrine Maiden games.
