Quotes: Persona 2
Worse than alone / Exiled.
Worse than exiled / Dead.
Maya Amano citing Le Calmant, from Marie Laurencin


Your powers...
"...are hidden deep within your heart..."
"Like a god or devil, it is "another self"..."
"Like a god...filled with love..."
"Like a demon...merciless..."
"Humans...go through life with many faces..."
"Your current appearance is just another face."
"...And so is your of many..."
Philemon explaining what is a Persona.

The night is still, the streets are quiet,
In this house lived my Love;
She left the town long before,
Yet her house is still standing in the same place.
There I also see a man standing and staring into the heavens,
Wringing his hands in violent grief.
I shudder when I behold his face;
The moon reveals to me my own likeness.
You Doppelgänger, you pale companion!
Why do you mimic my love sickness,
That tormented me at this place
For so many nights in the past?
"Der Doppelgänger", opening of Persona 2: Innocent Sin

In the twinkling stars of the Pleiades,
Stopped time begins to move
Dance of pleasure, feast of shadows
Song of a foreign land
The Flames of Atonement light the heavens
The lion's roar echoes far and wide
The five skulls that shine in Hell
The Holy Cross shines in the heavens
The moment the stars stop rising in the sky
The beat of the Maiyan Maiden also ceases
Paradise remains above Earth
And time winds backwards
"The Oracle of Maiya" note , a brief description of the plot of Persona 2: Innocent Sin

The seven Pleiades set the frozen time free
Wild dance, shadowed festival, foreign song ensue
As flames of expiation light the heavens
The lion's roar echoes far and wide
Five skulls glow in the depths of the earth
The holy cross shines high up in the sky
Once the star comes to a complete halt
The Maia Maiden's heart stops with it
What then remains is paradise on earth
Marking the end and a new beginning
"The Oracle of Maia" note
