Persona 5 character profiles

In the wake of the new trailer for Persona 5 from TGS 2015, Atlus has updated the website for the game with the profiles for the four main characters that have been revealed so far. The playable group is known as the “Phantom Thieves”, and the information released includes basic character backgrounds and the voice actors.

The profiles from the site:

Persona 5 Protagonist

Protagonist (voiced by Jun Fukuyama)

The leader of the Phantom Thieves. A 16-year-old young man and second-year high school student who transfers to Shujin High School. He seems quiet and well-mannered at first glance, but gives a completely different impression once he has donned his “phantom thief” guise. He finds residence at the Shiken Cafe run by his parents’ friend. The reason for him moving from the city to the capital Tokyo is currently unknown.

Persona 5 Ryuji profile

Ryuji Sakamoto (voiced by Mamoru Miyano)

Just like the protagonist, he is a 16-year-old, second-year student at Shujin High School. He stands out with his wild behavior and seems to be a “problem child” even within the school. More often than not, his problematic behavior imposes on the hospitality of the school’s teachers and advisers. He previously did not behave the way he currently does, but the origin of his bad behavior is currently unknown.

Persona 5 An profile

An Takamaki (voiced by Nana Mizuki)

A 16-year-old, quarter-American girl who attends Shujin High School. Unable to fit in with those around her due to her noticeably different appearance, she isolates herself within the school. She is often seen hanging out with the protagonist and Ryuji Sakamoto. Strange rumors about her have seemingly been circulating the school, but whether or not they’re true are unknown.

Persona 5 Morgana profile

Morgana (voiced by Ikue Otani)

The most mysterious member of the Phantom Thieves. Childlike in height, her appearance imitates that of a black cat, but her true identity is completely unknown. It looks like she’s wearing something on her head, but…? That is all the information we currently have. Though she does resemble the black cat often seen with the protagonist…

Voice samples and untranslated information can be found on the website for the game.

Like with other Persona games, Atlus has mentioned that there will naturally be more than these four characters within the Phantom Thieves. These characters will be revealed as the game draws nearer to its summer 2016 release date on PS4 and PS3.
