May 3, 2009. The HSN doesn't air during April 2009. The first chance you get to make a purchase is May 3. After which, they shall appear most Sundays to offer you goodies. It takes a couple of days before the item is delivered and you have to skip a night in Tartarus to collect the item.
20. There is one for each of the major arcana of the tarot. Each persona falls into one of those categories and is strengthened by the social links. Mastering the social link also gives the main character access to the most powerful persona in that part of the arcana.
Innocent Sin . The name is a play off the subtitle of the second "Persona" game. Playing this initializes the Hermit social link. The main character can get clues based of his conversations with Maya's player as to her identity. The Hermit arcana gives personas like Yomotsu Shikome and Neribos.
parents are divorcing. She is lonely, depressed, and thinks it's her fault. She blames herself and feels her parents no longer love her. She asks the main character to help her get her parents back together, but sadly, her parents get divorced anyway.
Igor & Elizabeth. Tarzan and Jane are characters from a widely popular story known as "Tarzan." The other two are random names. Igor fuses the personas and Elizabeth keeps the compendium. Elizabeth will also give the main character optional quests which give rewards like items that allow the creation of certain personas.
Fool. The SEES group represents the Fool card and gives the Fool personas power. Orpheus is one such persona. He is the first of the fool "lineage." Others of that "lineage" are the Black Frost and Loki.
Orpheus. Orpheus is the main character's original persona. The others are attainable as the story progresses. You can gain other personas by either fusing them or an oracle shuffle.
Minato Arisato. According to the offical "Persona 3" manga, the main character's given name is Minato Arisato. The other three are all major characters from other "Shin Megami Tensei" games. Raidou is from "Devil Summoner", Naoya is from "Persona 1" and Tatsuya is from "Persona 2".
Naoto. During the final boss fight, you are encouraged by all the people who you have a maxed social link with. If you have maxed Naoto's social link, she will be one of the people to encourage you. The result of these encouraging words is what gives you what you need in order to finally defeat the game's true villain.
May 5. The Hermit social link is activated automatically on May 5 when you go to the shrine. There, you will meet a fox who will help heal you when you enter the TV world. This link is different then most because it only levels up when you complete one of the fox's requests.
The Amagi Inn. On the final day of the game, you must talk to everyone who you have a strong bond with in order to get the true ending. If you have maxed Yukiko's (Priestess) social link, you must talk to her at the Amagi Inn. To get there, you must use the bus stop. However, she is usually in front of the book store or in front of the billboard at school on any other day.
Tohru Adachi. The Emperor social link is carried out through Kanji, the Fortune social link is carried out through Naoto, and the Hanged Man social link is carried out through Naoki. Adachi plays a huge role in the games main storyline, but you are never able to form a social link with him.
Enemy Radar. Rise learns the Treasure Radar skill when you level up the Lovers social link to level 3, and also learns Weakness scan when it is leveled up to level 10. She learns Certain Escape when she reaches level 72 in battle. Enemy Radar allows you to see enemies on you map before you are right in front of them.
Yuuta. Eri Minami's (Temperance) social link is based on the relationship between Eri and her son Yuuta. Eri is Yuuta's stepmother, and he doesn't see her as his real mother. As you level up the Temperance social link, Eri and Yuuta slowly start to act like a real family.
Ishtar. You gain the ability to fuse Norn when you max the Fortune social link, you can fuse Isis when you max the Empress social link. Cybele is a lower level Persona that also falls into the Lovers arcana.
Ryotaro Dojima. Nanako gives you the Family Photo, Hisano gives you an Old Fountain Pen, and Sayoko gives you her Hospital ID. In Dojima's social link, he says that making coffee for everyone is his only job around the house. He thanks you for making him and Nanako closer by giving you your own special coffee mug.
Adachi . Detective Adachi, throughout the game, worked with Dojima on the case of the Inaba murders, and it is discovered that he was actually the mastermind behind most of the events that occurred over the past year. When the Investigation Team realizes that Adachi did it, they chase him into the Midnight Channel and fight their way to him in a dark version of Inaba.
If the Investigation Team points all of the blame on Taro Namatame as the sole killer, they will receive the Bad Ending of the game, but if they realize that there was a second person (being Adachi), the game will continue for another dungeon (or two for the True Ending). While Namatame initially believes that the Midnight Channel is saving people from the murders (because the first two were killed by Adachi and the rest were saved by the Investigation Team), he realizes when Nanako is thrown in that it may not be true.
After fighting Adachi's shadow and self in the Midnight Channel, it is revealed that his Persona was actually Izanami. Finishing the True Ending will reveal that Izanami was actually disguised as the gas station attendant at the entrance to Inaba. Shaking hands with many of the characters as they entered town granted them access to the Midnight Channel and influenced their doings in the game. Once this evil being is defeated, the True Ending is completed.
He is her father. The protagonist moves in with Dojima and Nanako at the start of the game in April 2011. While Nanako is a stern figure in the household, always having to work as a detective on the murder cases and leaving Nanako behind to take care of the house, Nanako is a friendly child who quickly befriends nearly everyone in the game.
Over the course of the game, the protagonist can speak with Dojima one-on-one to establish the Hierophant arcana links. Despite the fact that Dojima will often be quite short with the protagonist, it is evident that he's just trying to protect the boy.
Nanako, while spending time with all of the other party members, can speak with the protagonist on many occasions to strengthen the Justice arcana social link. Towards the end of the game, Nanako is placed into the Midnight Channel and the group has to travel to her incarnation of the dungeon (known as 'Heaven' because of her pure heart and longing for her mother, who passed away when she was much younger). Depending on whether or not the player gets the Bad, Good, or True Ending, Nanako's fate will be decided.
Gun. Naoto Shirogane is similar to both Kanji and Rise. Like Rise, Naoto is 'new' in Inaba. A member of the Shirogane family, known for intense detective work over the years, Naoto travels to Inaba in order to infiltrate certain aspects of the community and gain knowledge about the Midnight Channel killings. Like Kanji though, Naoto's gender is placed into question until it is ultimately revealed in her dungeon (a mysterious, secret laboratory) that she is actually female. Despite the fact that her outward appearance doesn't really demonstrate this, Naoto does have her sensitive moments throughout the game. In addition, her intelligence may be unequaled by all of the other members of the team.
Though Naoto appears much later in the game than the other characters, and though she is the final member to be added to the party, you can max out her levels in the Fortune arcana and evolve her Persona, Sukuna Hikona, into Yamato Takeru. In addition, the more interaction held between the protagonist and Naoto, the more comfortable she is expressing herself in more feminine ways.
Himiko. Rise, before moving back to Inaba and becoming the 'new kid' in the protagonist's class, was known as Risette from her previous work in the TV industry. Although many people look up to her advertising career, her previous group of friends were only with her because of the fame behind her name. When she arrives in Inaba to settle down and go back to school, the group finds that she is the next victim. They head to her Midnight Channel incarnation, a strip club, to save her.
Although one would assume that Rise joins the party, she does not become a fighter for the group. Upon joining, she takes Teddie's role as the commentator for the group and Teddie joins as a fighter.
Rise's Persona, Himiko, evolves into Kanzeon at max social level. Both of these Personas are in the Lovers acrana.
The Emperor arcana. Using the Persona of Take-Mikazuchi, Kanji is a formidable friend in the Midnight Channel and in real-life Inaba. His stern appearance and unorthodox appearance make Kanji seem like a bully, but as it is discovered, he is a much more sensitive person than he lets on. In addition, the game leaves it open to interpretation as to whether Kanji is straight or gay, leading to a much more enigmatic personality.
This idea is further supported by the fact that his Midnight Channel stages are held in a mysterious bathhouse. Upon fighting his sexually-confused shadow self, Kanji will decide to join the group and he will become a very important friend to keep.
Once the Emperor arcana is maxed out, Take-Mikazuchi will evolve itself into Rokuten-Maō.
Amagi Inn. Yukiko is a shy, reserved character who was to be the future boss of the Amagi Inn. During the initial controversy in town, this inn held many reporters and police investigators. When Yukiko appeared on the Midnight Channel in the form of a promiscuous, flaunting beauty, everyone was shocked. The protagonist, Yosuke, and Chie traveled to her location within the Midnight Channel to help her and discovered a lavish castle. At the end, they protected her by fighting her shadow, and after the battle it was discovered that she possessed the power of Konohana Sakuya in the Priestess arcana. After consideration, it is revealed that she does not want to take over the Amagi Inn and she branches into newer ventures. She also joins the group to solve the mysteries of the Mystery Channel ad the recent murders.
Once maxed out, her social link will result in Konohana Sakuya evolving into Amaterasu.
Junes. Yosuke was 'the new kid' before the protagonist arrived in Inaba, and because of his father's affiliation with the new department store, June's, he has been somewhat ostracized by the owners and workers from small businesses around town. Yosuke first enters the Midnight Channel not as a victim, but to investigate the disappearance of Saki Konishi, a girl who worked a June's. In order to finish the mission, Yosuke needs to oppose the shadow of himself. When this is done, he will join the protagonist's party and fight with his Persona (of the Magician arcana), Jiraiya.
Yosuke tends to provide slapstick comic relief during the storyline and acts as one of the protagonist's best friends. Powering up his social link to the maximum level will result in Jiraiya evolving into Susano-O.
|Before the game begins, the protagonist is found in the Velvet Room. Here, "Persona" players will find a familiar face- Igor. What is the name of Igor's assistant in "Persona 4"?||"Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4" - Characters
Margaret. Although the Velvet Room appears in many of the "Persona" games, this is the first time that it appears inside what seems to be a moving limousine. The room (for the most part) will contain Igor, a mysterious man who speaks in occasionally-cryptic sentences. He alludes to the protagonist that this year will change his life, and he's definitely not wrong about it. The protagonist visits the Velvet Room in both dreams and the real world depending on where it can be accessed.
At one point in the game, Margaret will see you in the Velvet Room alone, explaining that she is the reason he is able to access this mysterious area. Because of this obscure bond, the protagonist is able to create a link to the Empress Arcana. If the protagonist strengthens and fuses Empress Arcana-based Personas, then Margaret's relationship will grow. Gathering social links and additional Personas of all types will also fill Margaret's compendium, in turn convincing her to give you stronger items.
If the True Ending of the game is achieved a second time, Margaret will reveal that she is the sister of a previous Velvet Room attendant, Elizabeth (who appeared in "Persona 3"). She will then battle you.
