Hanako's mother was a Miko, a shrine maiden. For hundreds of years, the Miko were entrusted with the task of keeping watch over a nether portal deep beneath Mount Fuji. The Miko were trained in fighting dark forces through the use of spiritual magics, incantations and potions.
When Hanako was five years old, the Miko were attacked. They fought fiercely and managed to push back the evil within their realm, unfortunately, the effort was so much that all died in the attempt. Hanako, now alone and scared, took over the vigil.
Unknown to her, Gaia had placed her under her protection. She directed her then, weak energies, towards feeding the young girl and diverted a stream so that she could have access to water.
Hanako had not been old enough to learn how to tap the spiritual power within her, but had been taught minor spells and incantations, most of which had proven sufficient in keeping the portal from opening.
Her reading skills had been enough for her to decipher many of the texts in the temple, and over the years, she learned spells and how to concoct various potions.
In the A1 Universe, Hanako did not become Yokai.
Magic: She can cast spells and brew various potions.
Portal creation/sealing: She can open or close dimensional tears.
Martial arts: Hanako has trained herself to be an impressive combatant.
