Characters / Persona Heaven

Go To

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.

    First Years 

Jhonathan Diaz

"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.
  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: At least, he gets mistaken as one. Much to his annoyance.
  • Ambiguously Brown
  • 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.
  • Battlecry: "Well, shit."
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: Probably the only reason he puts up with Kaika's general bad image of him.
  • 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.
  • Celibate Hero: Somehow, he never really gets to Max Out the Social Links if you know what I mean.
  • 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.
  • Dance Battler: Inevitably results in this.
  • 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.
  • Kill It with Fire: Moses has Fire and Almighty as his elemental powers.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: In "Let the games begin", he refuses to put his irritation with Reizo aside and think strategically.
  • Love at First Sight: Utterly taken aback by Elizabeth when he first entered the Velvet Room.
  • Pet the Dog: While he acts smug and sarcastic most of the time, he really does care a lot about the people he's met. He feels thankful for them allowing him to be a friend.
  • Papa Wolf: Do not mistreat children with him around. Under any circumstances. He also tends to be very protective of his friends. It stems from the fact that prior to moving to Nikawa he lacked any.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Red to Reizo's Blue.
  • 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.
  • You Are Better Than You Think You Are: His motto.

  • Ax-Crazy: She only wants to chop heads off the people who try to take Masato away. That's not so bad...right?
  • Badass Normal: Was a force to be reckoned with even before awakening to her Persona.
  • Big Brother Mentor: Jaden was this to her before his death.
  • Black and White Morality: Clearly believes in this.
  • 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.

  • Parental Favoritism
  • Parental Neglect: Even when arrested and taken away her parents seem unconcerned about her fate.
  • TraumaticHaircut: Almost has this in the school massacre thread, which presses the berserk button on her and causes her to straight up snap which is what led to the killing in the first place.
  • The Un-Favourite: Made worse by the highly favored brother having died. (Brother would most definitely fit under Too Good For This Sinful Earth)
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: She wants to rid Nikawa of its criminal ensuring their demise.
  • WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: Effed up past. Capable of mass murder along with Masato.
  • Yandere
  • 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.

Kaika Shigurei

“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.
  • Fragile Speedster: Of the Punch Out variety.
  • Dual Tonfas: They fit the character like a glove.
  • 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.
  • I Just Want to Be Special: Ultimately she wants to be recognized for what she truly is and not what she is expected to be.
  • Pet the Dog: For all the crap she gives Jhon, she once managed to give him some semblance of trust in the "Philosopher's Stoned" thread.
  • Humans Are Morons: Her general approach to most people. The few exceptions, she considers informed enemies. Again, The Hermit.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Do not under any circumstances get on her bad side. She will snark you into submission.

Shintaro Oshima

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'.
