Eternal Judgement
A judge of heavens and a Lawyer of hell.

As expected, it didn’t take long for him to receive the warning that the judge wanted to meet him. It never happened that it would take much more than a few days until they finally ripped the business card apart, wanting to speak with him about what he asked them to, and normally those who took a bit more time were also the most interesting, as they normally were the more wise, too.

He didn’t teleport right away, though. No, doing so would make him look like he either expected such reaction, and thus look arrogant, or had nothing to do, which would make him look lazy. Instead, he prepared his briefcase, possible contracts and statistics stuffed in there along with pens and every utility he might need, and then straightened his smoking, just to look acceptable enough for a meeting of that importance.
Just then, he finally snapped his fingers, finally appearing in front of the desk of the Yama, quickly bowing in front of her to show respect and greet her properly.

"Greetings, Oh Judge. My apologies for making you wait for a while, I had to make sure to be prepared with everything I needed before entering this realm." As he was now far from his own hell, that statement was a little more important that one might think : now that he was there, moving in and out of that world for just getting a few things would quickly tire him out, and he needed to be in top shape if he wanted to make it work.

"My name is Satan, know also as the lord of hell, though I do suppose you’ve made your researches before calling me. And my reason of booking an appointment was related to your own "hell" ‘s  economical status. Am I allow to explain further, or is there something you might want to talk about, first?

Eiki, as was her nature, listened carefully to every word. He’d certainly dressed for the occasion. And from his words, it was clear he’d done his research on just how the Hells of Eiki’s realm worked. Still, he wouldn’t be here if he didn’t have a good reason to benefit himself. Whether the Adversary or the Tempter, that would be the same. And so she had to be careful.

"I have indeed done my research, Satan," she affirmed, not moving from where she rested in her throne, doing her best to seem as regal as possible. Eiki aimed to remind Satan of the power and majesty of his own God. "Know this, the deceptions you undertake, whether they be sanctioned by your God or not, they will not work here. My mirror can stare into the souls of those who catch sight of it, reveal all their sins and thoughts. Do not attempt to deceive me." In truth, it was a subtle bluff on her part - the mirror wouldn’t work on Satan, but he didn’t know that. 

"Now that we have made that clear, I think there will be no problems with you explaining further. Know, however, that if you run my Hells like you run your own, you will not be forgiven. Those under the sway of the Yamas can nearly always be redeemed, and the Hells are for punishment, not imprisonment for life eternal. Still… go on."

A judge of heavens and a Lawyer of hell.

You see, wandering around Satan, especially if you come from another world or dimension, it’s pretty much always a bad decision, even if your intentions are everything to harmful to him. If then you even talk to him and explain to him the wonder that is the place you come from, then you can be sure that once that laziness or boredom strikes, he WILL come and take a look around, his eyes scanning for possible profiting deals to make, people to be aware off and his mind deciding whenever or not it was worth planning an attempt to take over your world.

In this case, the one that many would soon start to blame for Satan’s sudden appearance and following decision to start to collect information would be Daichi, a far too brave, yet stupid tengu that tickled the devilish being’s curiosity to the point that he spared no men when he send them to explore Gensokyo, their mission being to bring him anything that could have been worthy to know, and it ending with these scouts bringing back so much, that it took around a month for Satan to filter what he had in search of something interesting and worthwhile. A thought job, but when you have all the time in the world, it wasn’t a problem.

Supernatural beings, goddesses, priests with enough power to defy them, a whole party of religions where he wasn’t invited, and probably for good reasons. It wasn’t difficult to see how everything seemed to stay in balance with a spit and a prayer, nor was it to see that if he wanted to actually try to do anything, he had to find a way to bypass effectively all those people’s powers, as one god alone could easily push him back to his home without any problem, if he wouldn’t be able to expand his hell there before it happened. But how to do that?
After a few more reading, the answer came, and he quickly started to prepare for a meeting, one that, if went well, would grant him not only the permission to get his hell there, but to start various other kind of business, in complete safety.

He was going to trick the system to a god-like level, in short.

He had to play it well, though. Going in a full out war wasn’t an option this time, and simply trying to overpower anyone standing in his way would probably just generate a century long fight he didn’t want to deal with. No, he had to play it cool and do what he did best, use words instead of guns and pen and paper instead of sword and shield. The pen is mightier than the sword, when it is used to firm legal acts.

So, first of all, he had to book an appointment, and quickly he began to write a letter to the one he would soon meet : Shikieiki Yamaxanadu, the so called judge of heavens, which seemed to hold the greatest of powers in that place, but bounded by enough rules that Satan could exploit.
Once ready, the letter would simply teleport itself from his to her desk in an instant, and he would just have to wait until she was ready.

"Great Judge of the heavens,

I apologize for bothering you, but I would like to book an appointment with you as soon as possible to discuss about business related matters, as my source says that you might need some more income in order to help your world’s own economy to prosper.
Whenever you feel like to have a chat, do please rip the business card you will find in this letter, and I will be warned that you desire to speak with me, and make arrangements to come as soon as possible.
My apologies if this letter seems short or abrupt, but I do think that these business are better planned by speaking in person, and there is always the chance that it might be intercepted by others from mine or your world, so it is better to keep things simple.

In hope to talk with you soon, I do wish you a good day.

Your truly,

Satan.”

"Great judge of the heavens," Eiki read to herself in the throne-like chair that stood before her desk, a symbol of her status. It was not often that a being would seek her out, especially not a being of deception. The Nue came to Eiki’s mind at that. Nevertheless, it was an interesting offer. Judging by the fact that he knew about the financing of Hell, he’d done his research. And as Eiki reached out, grasping two scrolls that she’d teleported there in the same moment, she was about to do the same.

A few hours later, she was done. The judge had read through the original Hebrew Torah and Greek Bible in their entirety, gleaning every spiritual fact she could about Satan. And even then, it seemed to conflict. A god-chosen adversary, or an angel cast out of Heaven? Confined to act only with the permission of his god, or able to do as he pleased? Eiki couldn’t be certain, with these conflicting views. Finally she tossed the scrolls down, the papers disappearing as soon as they touched her desk. Clean again.

"It would not be the first time a deceptive, arguably evil and exceptionally powerful being has entered Gensokyo…" she assured herself with closed eyes, letting the letter disappear and taking up the small card instead. How clever, she thought. Almost like an alarm. "Let us see what he really has to offer the embodiment of Law." And with that, and a narrowing of her eyes, the card had been diced into over a hundred pieces, each one disappearing as it touched the large desk. Eiki simply leaned back in her throne, waiting for her arrival with stern look and stiff shoulders. She wanted to give a good first impression.

☦ "Heya, Yama-chan~ Are you being good to all the souls, kero?"

"It is hardly my job to ‘be good’ to them. And you would do with somewhat more respect for authority, Suwako-san. ‘Yama-chan’ is hardly the title you give to one such as I. That aside, it’s always a good idea to try to get out and spread the faith more, even if you are in a comfortable position."

☦ "Have you any words for me, Lady Eiki?"

"I… I would not presume to judge or advise one who has such control over higher knowledge and thought. My apologies, Omoikane-san."

"You’re doing rather well, actually… although you should work more on being the terrifying youkai you’re supposed to be. Those who should fear you do not."

"Careful noting of the past is a virtue… but you do somewhat too much of it. Focus on the future instead."

"It must be quite interesting, the turn your life has taken. A new residence, a significant other for the first time in how many decades now? Take your time and settle in. Don’t be hasty - that’s how mistakes are made."

"Don’t wait for people to approach you. That’s not how you make friends or even acquaintances. That said, you should be smart about who you approach."

"…Can I just go with the same answer as Sariel? No? Damn it."

"Well, to start with, there’s the simple fact that you don’t act as a proper youkai should, which even if you claim not to be one, you should at least act like it. For another, there’s the depraved things you do to children, which I don’t care if they’re superficially happy, it’s still morally wrong, and…" She’s still going on.
