What is Persona 4?
Persona 4 is the most recent installment in the popular and well-known Persona series (technically there are PSP remakes that are more recent but they're remakes). It builds on a lot of the good elements of Persona 3 while losing some of the worst elements. The game takes place in the same general world as Persona 3 about a year after the end of the game, but there's not much in the way of direct connection. It's a pretty good game, so it's worth showing off.

Dramatis Personae:
Wherein we meet our cast...

Main Cast:

Souji Seta:
Our main character, whom we will follow throughout the story. As the story begins, he is moving from the big city to the small town of Inaba.

Souji's Persona. His name means "male-who-invites". He and his wife Izanami created the islands of Japan and the gods and people who inhabit them.

Yosuke Hanamura:
A classmate of Souji, who seems prone to unfortunate accidents. He faced his other self in a twisted reflection of Inaba's shopping district.

Yosuke's Persona. A mythical ninja who mastered frog-based magic.

Chie Satonaka:
A classmate of Souji. Very serious about her martial arts dvds. She faced her other self in an ancient castle.

Chie's Persona. She's some kind of historical figure I think.

Yukiko Amagi:
A classmate of Souji. Chie's best friend. Her family owns a famous local inn. She was thrown into the TV, and saved from her own Shadow within.

Konohana Sakuya:
Yukiko's Persona. She is the avatar of all life in Japan, whose symbol is the sakura.

Kanji Tatsumi:
A rough guy a year younger than the main characters. Beats up bikers. Appeared on the Midnight Channel. We rescued him from a horrible fucked up Sauna.

Kanji's Persona. A Japanese thunder god of some description, I can't find that much about him. Luckily for you Viola the Mad knows the score.

A mysterious bearlike creature we met in the TV. He made us promise to find the person ruining his world. Now he's joined our frontline battle crew.

Kintoki Douji:
Teddie's Persona. I think he's a hero known for using a tomahawk, which is why he's carrying a missle around.

Rise Kujikawa:
An idol, who's moved back home to Inaba. She was kidnapped and thrown into the TV, where we rescued her. Now she'll support us in battle.

Rise's Persona. She's some kind of shaman queen and I think sort of a badass.

Naoto Shirogane:
A teenage detective. We saved her from the TV world after she was kidnapped.

Supporting Players:

A strange man who inhabits a mysterious other realm called The Velvet Room.

A strange woman who inhabits a mysterious other realm called The Velvet Room.

Ryotaro Dojima:
The main character's uncle, whom he will be staying with for the next year. His job as a detective keeps him away from home a lot.

Nanako Dojima:
The main character's cousin. Seems very responsible for her age, and watches a lot of TV. Her mother died in an accident. We have a social link with her.

Daisuke Nagase:
A member of the soccer team, whom we have a social link with.

Kou Ichijou:
A member of the basketball tema, whom we have a social link with.

Eri Minami:
A woman we met at the daycare center.

A classmate of Souji's who is passionate about acting. We have a social link with her.
