The second daughter of Yukiko Amagi and her husband, Hayate.

to:

The second daughter and child of Yukiko Amagi and her husband, Hayate.Hayate, Akemi is the third Inaba second-year introduced to the story. Despite her cheery attitude, Akemi is secretly very depressed. The bulk of the reason is because she's frequently bullied by other students due to her mixed heritage (Akemi is three quarters Japanese, a quarter Russian), to the point where she attempted to dye her hair black to look more Japanese. None of this helps, and Akemi is driven to feel that there's no fixing this and [[spoiler: attempts suicide by listening to the Midnight Station. Because of this, she's sucked into the Shadow world.]]

Akemi's Shadow dungeon manifests as a love cruise, showcasing her desires for love. After Akemi accepts her Shadow, it transforms into the Persona Hathor of the Lovers Arcana.

!!Akio Oshiro



The second female and sixth Shirogane detective, Rui is the sixteen year old daughter of Kanji Tatsumi and Naoto Shirogane. Rui, at her introduction as a teenager, is rather composed and serious. However, she does have bursts of anger, every now and then. After bumping into her ChildhoodFriend, Sora Narukami, she agrees to investigate his girlfriend, a famous actress named Kimiko Hoshino. However, events in Inaba bring her back to her humble hometown.

It is revealed that the Midnight Channel has returned. Yu and Naoto bring her to see Tohru Adachi, the criminal that orchestrated the first serial case of murders, but only to come up with nothing. That night, Kimiko is revealed to have been thrown into the TV, sending Sora into a panic. Their parents reluctantly allow them to go into the TV, but only accompanied by Teddie. In there, they discover the Fear Factor, the dungeon created by Kimiko's heart. In there, it's revealed that [[spoiler: Kimiko is cheating on Sora, and the only reason they were together because the relationship brought her excitement. This revelation causes Sora to lose control of his Shadow, forcing Rui to awaken to Hatshepsut and defend him.]] After Sora accepts his Shadow, they make a pact to find what's going on and solve the mystery revolving around the revived Midnight Channel.

When it is revealed that Death is after those in the Arisato family, Rui is dragged into the mess, as her mother is the younger sister of Minato and Minako. She shares the field leader role with Taiga from that point onward.

Rui is the Fool and she possesses the Wild Card, much like her mother's elder twin siblings, Minato and Minako Arisato. Her initial Persona is Hatshepsut, named after the famous female pharaoh of Egypt. Much later in the story, Hatshepsut gives rise to Ma'at, the Egyptian goddess of justice and balance. She is the Justice Social Link for Taiga.



!! Akemi Amagi

The adopted daughter of Teddie and Yukiko and the heir apparent to the Amagi Inn, Akemi is bright and bubbly, a PerkyGoth. She is Rui's best female friend. Akemi, however, is seen to be weird by most of her peers, and because of this, is a target of a lot of bullying. When she becomes trapped inside the TV World, she creates the Prank Hotel, the pranks geared towards everyone who had bullied her. After she accepts her Shadow, it transforms into Hathor of the Priestess Arcana, the Egyptian goddess of sky, love, beauty, joy, motherhood, foreign lands, mining, music and fertility. It later transforms into the Persona Sekhmet. She is also the Priestess Social Link.

!! Taiga Takeba

A famous actress in her own right, making her a colleague of Kimiko Hoshino, and the daughter of Minato and Yukari, making her cousin to Rui as Minato is Naoto's elder brother. She was born years after her father's death, and a result of in vitro fertilization.

She is also a Wild Card, having awakened prior to the events of Zenith, when she was thirteen years old. [[spoiler: While staying at a friend's house for a sleepover, she and her friends were attacked by a Shadow. Taiga was forced to watch as her friends were slaughtered, until she force summoned her Persona for the first time and killed it. However, due to not using an Evoker, her psyche was nearly shattered, and she fell into a coma. At one point, she was clinically dead but came back to life by some miracle. She developed amnesia because of this and has no recollection of her past.]]

She is introduced while Akemi is still trapped in the Prank Hotel, as a member of the special suppression unit and an Auxiliary member of the Shadow Operatives. While her native Arcana is the Fool as she's a Wild Card, her Social Link Arcana is Moon. Her initial Persona is Persephone, named after the Greek Underworld's queen.
