     Madogawa High Investigation Team 
Students with the ‘potential’ who have banded together to find the truth behind Nagatani’s mysteries. Their Personas take the forms of ancient Egyptian mythological figures.

Keiko Masuda

The distant, soft-spoken star of the Literature Club, despite an apparent lack of personal projects. Has a deep interest in people, yet keeps to herself – but with the growing mystery in Nagatani, will she be able to remain a closed book for long?

Her Persona is Nephthys of the Priestess Arcana.

Kirio Anzai

A stoic genius known as the 100% King. He seems to be caught up in his own world, ignoring the presence of those around him in order to focus on his studies. What lies behind that boy’s mysterious exterior?

His Persona is Thoth of the Hermit Arcana.

Kanno Inoue

A reckless lone delinquent who seems devoted to violently rejecting authority. Always looking for a fight, she’ll go on the attack at the slightest provocation. But is that all there is to this one-girl gang?

Her Persona is Sekhmet of the Devil Arcana.

Homare Kinjo

The eldest son of the famous Kinjo family. After suddenly transferring from his prestigious school in Tokyo to the humble Madogawa High School, rumors swirl around about what is truly happening within the family behind one of the most successful hotel chains in Japan. To the public he is a picture of perfection, but is that the truth?

His Persona is Neith of the Hanged Man Arcana.

Jun Hibiki

A cheerful and upbeat street dancer with a strong love for tokusatsu, particularly the Featherman series. Her penchant for shows aimed at children gives off a certain impression, but is she more mature than she lets on?

Her Persona is Horus of the Sun Arcana.

Hideo Akinori

A professional player for End of Absolution and the head of the disciplinary committee. Some see him as an exemplar of fairness, while others dislike his unrelenting pursuit of order. Is there a method to the madness of the justiciar?

His Persona is Serqet of the Justice Arcana.

Asami Yasue

An intimidatingly aloof girl with a passion for art, commonly called the Poisonous Queen behind her back for the disdain with which she treats her classmates. However, she’s rumored to show a completely different side of herself around animals. What secrets could the river reveal about her future – or her past?

Her Persona is Renenutet of the Empress Arcana.

  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: Of the Ice Queen variety.
  • Distinguishing Mark: Stands out in a crowd due to the pale patches of skin caused by her vitiligo, in addition to the Mismatched Eyes mentioned below.
  • Flower Motifs: Generally roses, but occasionally spider lilies as well.
  • Friend to All Living Things: Deconstructed - she loves plants and animals, but doesn't get along with her peers at all.
  • Mismatched Eyes: As a result of being born with heterochromia iridum, her left eye is brown while her right eye is pale green.
  • Nay-Theist: Initially. Upon seeing the visions in Madogawa river, she insists that a group of pranksters must have filmed themselves in disguise and projected the footage over the water to embarrass/frighten others...but her inner narration makes it clear that she's unnerved herself, and desperate for some kind of mundane explanation.
  • Poisonous Person: Unsurprisingly, given her nickname and the fact that her Persona has the head of a cobra, Renenutet specializes in ailments during battle (Earth spells not having appeared in Persona games since 2).
  • Rapunzel Hair
  • Red Baron: Madogawa High's Poisonous Queen.
  • Tarot Motifs: III — The Empress, although she demonstrates some qualities of its reversal as well. She has the creativity and a Mother Nature Persona, but only shows her nurturing side to plants and animals; to other people, she's cold and standoffish.
  • Whip It Good

Nobuhiro Tadano

The rambunctious star of the Kendo Club. Though he shines in the limelight now, rumor has it this wasn’t always the case. Could the twin sister he acts so protectively over have something to do with his rise to fame?

His Persona is Thutmoses III of the Tower Arcana.
