Nozomi lives in the shadow of his dead twin, is obesseed with food and follows a cult. He lives under the belief that he'll never be as good as his brother and that people are always laughing and judging him so he looks for solace in eating, the only thing he's good at, and the cult that promises salvation. One of the Moon's interpretations is illusions and Nozomi has fallen prey to a lot of them to get himself some semblance of self-esteem, donning a haughty attitude to cover how he really feels about himself when you first meet him. He continues to spread illusions by recruiting more people to the cult but it is only through the MC, being the first person that believed in him, that he is finally able to break free of the illusions and finally embrace what he's good at and stop comparing himself to others.

* More accurately, the resolution of Mutatsu's reunion with his family is never revealed, merely his decision to do so. As the Tower Arcana represents impending doom, it is actually far more likely that his family rejects his attempts to reconcile. This emotional disaster is the embodyment of the Tower Arcana, and accepting it and moving on is important in one's journey.

Fuuka's role as the [[MissionControl team's scanner]] plays into the High Priestess's themes of intuition and mystical visions. Her Persona is based off Saint Lucy/Lucia, a patron saint of the blind who continued to prophesies even after the emperor's guards cut her throat and gouged out her eyes. Fuuka's role as the "eyes" of SEES and her abilities in general relate to her. After determining that she wants to remain connected to all of her friends, especially the recently transferred Natsuki, her emotions give rise to Juno, queen of the Roman gods. This is likely to fit with the description of the Juno Moneta, known as "the one who warns".

The Chariot, normally, represents victory and conquest. In this case, it's literally military conquest and victory at all costs. Reversed, however, it also represents impulsiveness, inflexibility, and anxiety. It takes the form of a Tank, which is seen as very difficult to control. The Arcana Justice acts as a "Driver", leading it around so it can achieve victory over others

The Moon Arcana represents creativity, dreams, and fantasy. How on earth could a {{Badass}} like Shinjiro fit it, especially considering he already fulfills the role of Hierophant? Of course, the Moon also represents contradictions, madness, fear, and illusion. For the Female Protagonist, this is truly a tragic Social Link. Shinjiro is a deeply troubled young man. As his Social Link progresses, it becomes clear that he dearly cares for all of SEES, but is afraid to get close due to what he is certain to be his impending death. He is particularly troubled by his growing feelings for the Female Protagonist (the dreams and thoughts of her being imprinted in Shinjiro's mind prove this point well), knowing that pursuing a relationship with her would only hurt her. This is all in sharp contrast to the tough, [[ClusterFBomb foul-mouthed]] boy we meet early in the game. Shinjiro lives a created facade, as a character that truly represents the Moon Arcana would.

In traditional readings, Death represents transitions, metamorphosis, deep changes, and cycles. Instead, the Nyx Avatar represents the more popular, generic interpretation of the card: [[DoomyDoomsOfDoom doom]] and destruction. Rather than continuing the cycle of life, it serves only as a harbinger of Nyx to fulfill mankind's death urges and bring about [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt the Fall.]]

Ken's persona, Nemesis, represents absolute justice, or rather revenge. Ken himself illustrates the Justice Arcana very clearly. He joined SEES in order to seek revenge on Shinjiro for his mother's death. The question remains, however, whether or not it is right to seek revenge. Ken's desire for revenge is self-destructive, consuming most of his life, and he even plans to kill himself after taking revenge. This is another facet of Nemesis: she is a daughter of Nyx, and thus embodies a desire for death. When the crucial moment comes, Shinjiro refuses to take the role of Ken's enemy - he doesn't resist Ken, even giving his life to save him, but he does advise him against revenge for Ken's own benefit. Shinjiro's influence as the Hierophant causes Ken to rethink his desire for revenge, Nemesis evolves into Kala-Nemi.

Kala-Nemi. Kala-Nemi in the official works is stated to have been a pre-Vedic deity whose name means "wheel of time"; however, Vedic Sloka, or epic prayers, depict him not as the Wheel of Time itself, but its destroyer, one who frees people from ignorance, karma and the cycle of reincarnation. Kala-Nemi in another interpretation is depicted as a demon who wielded enough power to wage successful war against the gods--this would make sense when taking into consideration Ken's resolve to defeat the undefeatable avatar of death, ending the cycle of revenge once and for all.

!! Justice
Usually read as unbiased reason, moderation of one's behavior and logic in the face of conflict, the reversed variety represents corrupted reasoning, emotional thinking, and an excess of damaging desires. The fact that the Arcana Justice is controlling the Arcana Chariot may represent corrupt leadership, like a dictator or fascist.
