Souseiseki (蒼星石, Lapislazuli Stone / Blue Star Stone) is the fourth doll to be created by Rozen. She is the younger twin sister of Suiseiseki.
Souseiseki has moderately-short chestnut-brown hair with bangs that sweep to the left. A good portion of her head is covered by a large black hat. Her right eye is green and the left is red.
She wears a white shirt under a black corset-like piece that has a set of blue ruffles down part of the back. The front of this corset piece is partly open with a black ribbon connecting it in a crossing fashion. On top of this piece is a blue cape that runs down to her elbows. Finally on top of all this is one last piece, a rectangular piece of white cloth that covers her chest and upper back with white ruffles on the edges and a black ribbon on the front. A pair of large blue pants goes down to just past her knees, hemmed in such a fashion that the ends of the pants close up around her leg. White socks cover all of her exposed legs. She wears a pair of black shoes with an additional black piece on her ankles.
Souseiseki is quite a serious most of the time person, but she's still very kind who also has a tomboyish like personality, which makes her the opposite of Suiseiseki (Souseiseki's older twin sister).
Souseiseki possesses a sharpness in her speech which is also noted to be of the masculine form. She dresses like a boy due the fact that she refers to herself as "boku" instead of gender neutral pronouns like "jibun" or "watashi" makes her even more boyish, in which all these facts are similar to Shinku's. Souseiseki attacks ruthlessly in combat, and does not tolerate sub-par actions. Although Souseiseki's character is the complete opposite of her elder twin's as they are rarely seen apart from each other. Souseiseki is slightly more eager to participate in the Alice Game, due to a sense of duty to Father. Souseiseki often becomes the voice of reason whenever Suiseiseki does something mischievous, but most of the time she is caught up in the trouble her twin sister makes.
Weapons and Skills
Souseiseki's artificial spirit is the light blue colored Lempicka (レンピカ Renpika), who is used to summon her weapon, the Gardener's Shears. Souseiseki's ability is to cut souls and memories with her shears. In combat, they are used like a sword to block and parry attacks. In the dream worlds of humans, Souseiseki uses the shears to cut away the brambles that represent one's memories. While ideally, only the dead roots could be cut away, freeing a human of his or her burdens, the good memories could be cut off as well.
Like Suiseiseki, she is also able to use her case as a form of mobility. When inside her case she can "fly" it through the air.
- "I swear that I will cut you loose!"
- "Your strong enough to go on without me...you've always been..."
- "Do not speak badly of the master"
- "Kanaria...do you seriously plan to fight all of us?"
- "Whatever father wants...I want!"
- "Hinaichigo did you really do this to the shears?"
- "Get out of the way!"
- "I am nothing like Shinku I can assure you that"
- Souseiseki is the younger twin but she acts mature and looks older
- In the past of the anime, the first doll Souseiseki battled with was Shinku.
- Despite debuting late in the season, Souseiseki was shown in Rozen Maiden season 1 opening from the first episode.
- Was once depicted with a blue/red eye color combination on the color page for Phase 20. Since Suiseiseki was also shown in Phase 22 with the same combination, but reversed, it could mean that Peach-Pit had changed their eye colors for a short time and then changed them back to their original green and red combination.
