|Background Info||Shinki is the creator of Makai, a world of demons whose entrance is located near the Hakurei Shrine in a mountain cave. During the events of Mystic Square, Shinki allowed a tourist agency in Makai to organize trips for the demons there to the human world of Gensokyo.
Entering the fortress Pandæmonium, the heroine soars past fantastic crystal designs while battling through legions of enemies. At the top she is met by a strange individual named Shinki who politely informs her that the demon invasion is entirely the fault of a civilian travel agency that is arranging tours of Gensokyo and that it lies outside of her jurisdiction. Before the protagonist can inquire as to the meaning of this they are interrupted by Yumeko, who adamantly insists that Shinki retire so that she may dispose of their uninvited guest. After defeating the maid, the protagonist meets Shinki again, who now explains that she is actually the god and creator of Makai itself. She promises to look into the tourist issue, but only after severely punishing the heroine for disrupting her realm so. This final battle is extraordinarily violent and Shinki's tremendous power leaves much of Makai in flames.
It's heavily speculated as to what her relationship to Alice Margatroid is, but it seems to be surprisingly loving, considering that Shinki is comparable to Satan. Since she is the creator of Makai, everyone within that world considers her a god. She admits to the heroine that Yumeko, her knife-wielding maid, is the strongest of her subjects, and the idea of a devil and a knife-wielding maid pair occurs again in Touhou 6 with Remilia Scarlet and Sakuya Izayoi. Not much else is known about Shinki, as she never appears again after Touhou 5. (Sources: Wikipedia and DoujinStyle.com)
