In this article two related topics are discussed. The first is the individual character known as Blinded that appears in Fatal Frame. The second is the group of Shrine Maidens that she belongs to that go by the name Blinded Maidens.
In Fatal Frame, the Blinded Maiden is the hostile ghost of the last Blind Demon to perform the Demon Tag Ritual prior to the Calamity. She was one of a line of maidens chosen to perform the Blinding and Demon Tag Rituals of Himuro Mansion.
Blinded was a member of the Himuro family. Upon reaching the age of 7 years, 9 months and 25 days, she was obligated to take part in the Demon Tag Ritual, like the rest of the young girls of the Himuro family her age. Every 10 years the entire Himuro family was obligated to gather at Himuro Mansion to perform a set of rituals to seal the Hell Gate, as well as prepare for the next set of rituals that would occur 10 years later. One of the rituals performed was a game of Demon Tag. It served as a means to select the next Rope Shrine Maiden and Blind Demon for the next set of rituals. The first child to be caught became the next Blind Demon for the next game of Demon Tag. Blinded was chosen to be the next Blind Demon in the same game of Demon Tag that Kirie was chosen to become the next Rope Shrine Maiden.
What happened to Blinded after this is not known, including if she was able to perform the Demon Tag Ceremony to choose the next Blinded Maiden and Rope Shrine Maiden. It is presumed she perished during the Calamity along with the other people killed.
After her death, Blinded's spirit returned to roam the mansion in search of the next Blind Demon. Miku encountered her spirit several times during her search for her missing brother. Once the curse over the mansion was broken by Miku, Blinded's spirit was able to rest in peace.
