|Background Info||Cirno is an ice fairy, and an exceptionally strong one at that, considering that fairies are extremely weak in Gensokyo. She lives in cold areas, but was spotted on Misty Lake near the Scarlet Mansion during the scarlet mist incident. She tried to stop the heroine out of pure instinct, but was defeated. She returns in Touhou 7 as a midboss for Letty Whiterock's stage, but is easily downed once again. She returns as a playable character in Touhou 9. Cirno simply loves to pull pranks and play around, not thinking about the consequences of her actions. Her favorite hobby is freezing frogs and watching them thaw in the water: she told Aya that this was ice magic practice, but the tengu didn't buy it.
Cirno is notorious for being an idiot. Even the Touhou Project's creator ZUN somewhat confirmed this in Touhou 9's manual. He pointed out nine points on the screenshot, and the 9th point next to Cirno read 'baka', or 'idiot'. Thus she is jokingly called Nine-Ball. To add insult to injury, the best way to get away from Cirno in a fight is to give her a riddle. No matter how easy it is, she'll spend a lot of time thinking about it, giving her foe a chance to run.
But there may be a chance that Cirno isn't as stupid as she lets on. In Touhou 9, she was the only one who knew right away that the excessive flower-blooming event happened sixty years ago, although she thought of it as a festival instead of an incident. Even the flower youkai Yuka Kazami took until her sixth stage to figure it out. Regardless, Cirno is a none-too-bright fairy who loves to play and be mischevious, never taking anything seriously. She's sometimes seen with Letty the winter youkai, and they may be good friends. The main difference between Letty and Cirno is that while Letty can only be seen during winter, Cirno can stay out all year.
