The various characters in Nikawa. Naturally, as an online roleplay, there are a lot of them. Take note the characters here are mostly user-submitted so they represent a minimum fraction of the actual number of characters in the Persona Heaven forums.
"Sure, I'll help you. Co-op is the best multiplayer mode there is."
A south american teenager adopted by a japanese couple. Currently livinig in Nikawa and attending the academy. His arcana is the Judgement and his initial Persona is Moses. Yes, that Moses.Played by Prowiasto.
Accidental Pornomancer: Drunk Jhon is like another character entirely, complete with the ability to make rose petals fall out of nowhere, lacking a shirt at all times and speaking entirely in spanish.
Awesomeness by Analysis: The second he found out about the Persona Weapon summoning ability, he started using his swords as projectile weapons and then summoning them back after damage had been dealt. This completely escaped Reizo's line of reasoning.
Badass Normal: Before getting his Persona, he carried around a taser and is quite skilled at street fighting.
Batman Gambit: He likes to trash talk his opponents into adopting certain conducts that he will mercilessly exploit.
Berserk Button: Never threaten his friends or family. Ever. If you really want to get trashed, call him a traitor.
Bullet Time: Doesn't actually happen, but his perception is quite heightened when in battle.
Brilliant but Lazy: He can't seem to be interested in anything but fantasy and videogames. But when he gets his mind into a task, he performs uncharacteristically well. Not because of any previous knowledge, but because he is actually intelligent enough to connect dots by himself. A natural fast learner.
Chivalrous Pervert: He has no qualms about checking out the girls, but he will do so very discreetely and won't lie if they ask him.
Confusion Fu: Can't pack a strong punch. Can't plan out a master strategy. Get too close and you will leave with a punch in the throat, a body full of poison and no idea how it happened. Overlaps with...
Combat Pragmatist: He will use any and every possible thing around to bring you down in any and every possible way.
Dark and Troubled Past: Severely downplayed. While his is not a nice backstory and he's very sensitive about the subject of abandonment, he doesn't let his past get the best of him and tries to live the present brightly.
However an upcoming event might reveal the extent of just how effed up of a past he has...
Dashing Hispanic: While his actual fighting style involves never letting himself be touched in the slightest, his dual swords can inflict poison at the slightest cut. Due to living in a rather shady neighborhood he can run very fast, knows parkour and can improvise alternate uses for items. Which leads into...
Deadly Dodging: His preferred method of fighting. He doesn't like getting his hands dirty and is a perfect example of the Jackie Chan fighting method.
Deadpan Snarker: Mentally. He even lampshades on the convenience of some plot devices.
Determinator: Got a plan? Good, let's move out. No plan? Tough, let's move out.
Finishing Move: Isra-El. To put it bluntly, uses Moses' power to split an oncoming attack into two, slip through it and slashes the target in a frenzy of critical hits.
Fragile Speedster: Fast slashes, quick reactions, good evasion rate. Land a punch on him and it WILL have a toll.
Freudian Excuse: He doesn't feel very comfortable with his arcana due to him being ostracized and frowned upon because of his foreign nature and his lack of social activity. Hence, he hates being 'judged' and his first thought about getting his arcana was that it was a mistake.
Handicapped Badass: Thanks to his legs being paralyzed courtesy of DM Umbraflamma, he spend days using a cane. And still no thug could get him.
Hidden Depths: He isn't a master tactician or a genius, he does unremarkably in school and acts relatively silly in front of people. When faced with actual threats, he will use the tiniest bit of information he has to devastating effects.
Rich Idiot with No Day Job: Purposefully keeps up the front of being a nobody with no job or aspirations. In reality he's the adopted son of a rather wealthy couple of executives and knows a thing or two about computers.
She Cleans Up Nicely: Male variant. He's normally not groomed but when he does put some care into his image, nobody recognizes him at all. So effective the local delinquent leader Rin Taisakune couldn't help but point it out.
Shoo Out the Clowns: Most of his RPs are lighthearted and comedic. Dream Nikawa RPs on the other hand...
Strategy Schmategy: Sometimes he has absolutely no idea of what he's doing, but he does it still. This makes him the natural enemy of characters who analyse their oponents, much to Reizo Takeda's chagrin.
Unresolved Sexual Tension: Hitomi Tottori was subject to this. She did not take it well. Alternatively Rin Taisakune has shown him her soft side, completely catching him off guard.
What You Are in the Dark: His nice side is something he had to work to get. When trouble arises the first thing he automatically thinks about is saving his own ass. To be fair, he never abandons his friends even when the situation calls for it.
You Are Worth Hell: Not necessarily in a romantic way. He's a strong believer in second chances and sees good in people when often there is no one else who wants to.
During the Tsubasa Academy massacre, he offers Haru ( one of the perpetrators ) his friendship in exchange for her surrender and promise to attend rehab.
Formerly a poor girl, Marika soon found herself coming into the possession of a huge amount of money after her family took over Yoshida Enterprises. She took this chance to reinvent herself as a beautiful and powerful Alpha Bitch so no one would ever bully her again.Marika is of the Empress Arcana, and her initial Persona is Lakshmi.
A first year with heart trouble, Emilio was once a cheerful boy before his illness and the subsequent battery of medical procedures turned him into a reticent, quiet and gloomy teen. He is of the Sun Arcana, and his initial Persona is Shakoki-dogu.
Color-Coded for Your Convenience: Not Anri herself, per se, but Shokune's voice is in purple, while Erinyes' voices are in red. Depending on which sister is talking, it is either left-aligned, centered, or right-aligned.
Knight Templar: Refuses to permit any Shadows to live. This comes back to bite her in the thread "Back So Soon?!", where she encounters a human possessed by a shadow but still somewhat in control of her own mind.
A bright and artistic first year, she recently moved to nikawa so that she can go to an art school after she graduate high school she can go to an art school. she represents the Empress arcana, and her initial Persona is Artemis
An intelligent and serious second year who recently moved to Nikawa. Reizo represents the Moon Arcana, and his initial Persona is Yamata-noOrochi and his ultimate is Tsukiyomi. He goes by "Fubuki No Hebi" online.
Don't You Dare Pity Me!: When someone expresses concern over his illness (if he's not actually coughing up blood) he expresses this. Pride is what defines him.
Expy: Jhonathan sarcastically calls him Lelouch. It's not hard to see why. Even the Ham is there.
Finishing Move: Blizzard Arrow: Orochi creates a single arrow of ice that Rei fires off at an angle, it splits to equal the number of enemies. If the arrow hits, a pillar of ice springs up, and shatters when Rei snaps.
Fragile Speedster: He can move rather quickly, but only in short bursts so he doesn't over-exert himself. Also, one (powerful) punch is enough to make his body slowly kill itself through blood loss.
Meaningful Name: Reizo means calm, cool, and well groomed. Rei means rule, law, strive, and zero. Also, Fubuki No Hebi translates to Snake of Blizzard(s).
My God, What Have I Done?: After Luna's death, he even admits to hating himself as much as everyone else does for being the one who effectively caused it to happen. This is to the point of being described as "wanting to drown in (his remorse.) Complete with Tears of Remorse and feeling he Must Make Amends.
Not So Stoic: During a certain moment of the "Back So Soon!?" Thread, he screams "WHY WON'T YOU DIE YOU BASTARD!?" when faced with failure in combat. Later on displays this trope in the aptly named thread "Not So Stoic."
He's quoted several genius protagonists, but he doesn't read manga. Jhon mercilessly lampshades this.
Shown Their Work: He wears a set of unique Yugake, archer's gloves that protect one's hands from the bowstring. Word of God states the fact that his Yugake fail at their intended purpose was intentional.
Stoic Spectacles: He's eerily calm (almost) all the time. A trait that is stated to be "either creepy or endearing" in one thread.
Break the Cutie: Her failure to meet her parents' standards combined with her brother's sudden death in the Noukonku gang incident caused her to snap. It's bad enough to be corrupted, but broken too? The bullying in the school massacre thread could arguably be the same if it wasn't for the fact she was kind of broken already.
The Butcher: Haru's specialty is tearing her foes into shreads.
Corrupt the Cutie: She was initially sweet until negative influences caused her to become much more darker than before.
You Should Have Died Instead: Haru feels extremely guilty for her clear failure to be like Jaden and often wishes it upon herself that SHE died and not him. Doesn't help that her parents are jerks either.
“Knowledge is infinite and lies everywhere. Not many realize it.”
A mature and responsible second year student at Tsubasa Academy. She’s very smart and has a tactical view on life but secretly likes to read video game themed books. Sarcastic and sharp-tongued, Kaika represents the Hermit Arcana and her initial Persona is Celaeno.
Blow You Away: Celaeno is a Harpy. You do the math.
Post Victory Collapse: She can dish out a lot of damage but it takes a toll on her stamina.
Fear of Thunder: One of the few things in the world that can make her regress into a scared little girl.
Action Girl: It shows even when it's not a battle RP.
Parental Abandonment: Her parents left her to be raised by her uncle with little regard to her well-being. She's got big abandonment and trust issues. There's a REASON her arcana is The Hermit.
Mama Bear: She took it upon herself to taking the role of a mother to her older brother.
Plot-Powered Stamina: She pushed herself forward to make sure she can do everything she can in a day.
Ineffectual Loner: Despite her efforts to avoid getting in contact with people, she seems to attract the types that annoy her. Specially Jhonathan, who she thinks is something akin to a smooth-talking, smug womanizing monkey.
Closet Geek: She loves her geeky books and official Dragon Age novels.
I Just Want to Have Friends: Because deep down the snark, sarcasm, verbal abuse and judging personality lies a beating heart. It's damn well protected by twelve dragons, a magical fortress, eleven tungsten doors and inside a safe with a 600 character alphanumeric password though.
Punny Online Alias: "soul of the moon's light" is almost exactly what her name would mean if you read it surname first. Her given name is written with the characters for "moon" and "light", and her surname with the character for "soul".
A third year in Tsubasa Academy. She hails from two rich parents whom she distances herself with to live out her own life with her brother in Noukonku. She is a fiery gangster and is currently seeking out revenge for the death of Musashi Yoshino.
Rebellious Princess: She has two rather wealthy parents, yet she refuses to live with either of them, is involved in gang activities, and lives in Noukonku, the absolute bad side of Nikawa.
Revenge Before Reason: She seeks revenge for the person who murdered Musashi. When she finds out it's Marinna in the Hakurocon thread, she downright attacks her despite the fact Mari is clearly a stronger opponent AND Mari has gone batshit insane and just blindly attacked Miya.
Stripperiffic: Her outfits usually consist of her being practically half-naked, and the armor she changes into when summoning her Persona is no better.
Tsundere: She normally acts aggressive and tough, but she does have a soft side that can only be triggered by certain things.
A cynical third year who believes that it is human nature to do evil. Funnily enough, his dad is a cop who was rendered comatose by a gun-toting thug. This pretty much fucked up his entire family, and caused Shintaro to question if his dad was smart in trying to uphold 'justice'.
What the Hell, Hero?: Subjected to this by Jhon when he decided to protect the shadow-possessed girl that had just crippled him.
Bishounen: Leon is swooned over by girls mostly because of how handsome he is and his smile.
Knight in Shining Armor: Leon will come to the aid of just about anyone wither they be friend or foe. Expect Shadows. They get sliced in half.
Aloof Big Brother: Leon is the Star and Captain of the Kendo Team, though he doesn't like the fame that comes with it.
Oblivious To Hints: Leon has a tendency to be oblivious to things at time, even to things right in front of him.
Third year with a bad temper and power incontinence. Wields the persona Phoenix, of the Death arcana.
Heroic BSOD: She froze up as she saw the Dreamer about to kill her, also seeing her boyfriend Issac sacrafice himself to save her.
Playing with Fire: Miya's affinity for fire magic. Whenever she begins to get angry fire begins to form around her out of no where. She also has the nickname Empress of Flames for a reason.
Kill Itwith Fire: Miya uses Agi spells on just about everything, including anyone who manages to piss her off enough. Just in her small stay in Nikawa she has set a bike, dumpster, numerous Shadows, her own bed, and her school uniform on fire.
Sinister Scythe: Miya's persona weapon is a scythe looking similar to the Westernized Grim Reaper.
Badass Longcoat: Miya's attire in both school and out of combat is her black longcoat with a fire on the back of it.
Death Glare: Miya only has a single eye of hers visible through her bangs, which can use to scare others if she's pissed.
Huge Schoolgirl: Miya is quite possibly the tallest female on Persona Heaven coming in at 6 ft 5in.
Third Year student who moves around quite a bit due to his parent's mysterious job. Uses Enki as his Persona. He represents the Fool Arcana.
