Persona: Goemon
Japanese seiyuu: Tomokazu Sugita

Yusuke, a second-year student at Kosei High School, is passionately pursuing his dream of becoming an artist through his enrollment in the school’s art program. His artistic creations have garnered significant acclaim, although his journey hasn’t been without its challenges. In the past, his talent became a tool for exploitation at the hands of his own mentor.

However, a turning point occurs when he crosses paths with the Phantom Thieves and gains insight into the hidden truths within the Metaverse. This revelation prompts Yusuke to break free from his mentor’s grasp, choosing a different path for himself.

Empowered by his newly awakened Persona abilities, he aligns himself with the Phantom Thieves’ mission.

Despite his initial appearance as a handsome and well-mannered young man, Yusuke’s unwavering dedication to his artistic pursuit often leads him to express himself through unconventional means, leaving those around him both intrigued and bewildered.

Makoto Nijima

Persona: Johanna
Japanese seiyuu: Rina Sato

Makoto is in her final year at Shujin Academy. She has been deeply shaped by the strict demeanor of her elder sister, and takes pride for being a model honor student.

However, her life takes a significant turn when she liberates herself from the clutches of corrupt adults who had been exploiting her. This pivotal moment sees her unleashing her dormant Persona powers and wholeheartedly aligning herself with the Phantom Thieves.

Beyond her role as a student council president, Makoto naturally assumes a leadership position within the group. Her combat prowess involves engaging foes with her fists, which she expertly wields against enemies during battles. Her formidable Fist of Justice even invokes a sense of awe in Ryuji himself.

Futaba Sakura

Persona: Necronomicon
Japanese seiyuu: Aoi Yuki

Futaba, a prodigious hacker who once left a profound mark on the world, withdrew from society after being manipulated by deceitful adults who had caused her to blame herself for her mother’s passing.

This traumatic experience led her down a path of seclusion, making her apprehensive of human interaction and social engagement.

When she finally recovers suppressed memories, she unlocks her dormant Persona capabilities. Functioning as the Phantom Thieves’ guide, Futaba operates from the background, using her skills to navigate and provide invaluable support to the group.

Haru Okumura

Persona: Milady
Japanese seiyuu: Haruka Tomatsu

Haru is the heiress to Okumura Foods, a prominent entity within the food service industry. Her father had compelled her into an arranged marriage, which caused her to stifle her own aspirations each day.

Upon the emergence of her Persona powers, she gathers the strength to break the shackles her father had imposed. When her father passes away, Haru eventually confronts her grief and persists in her battles.

Beneath her compassionate exterior and unwavering commitment to justice, she carries a hint of naivety and idiosyncrasy due to her sheltered upbringing. This is evident in her playful self-reference as the “Beauty Thief.”
