P4 Arena Characters —Reminiscence of Persona 3
So,who wants a dump of sketches of characters I will probably never learn how to draw but I will probably live forever?
SOOOOO for everyone in the class, let’s recap
▶ In 1996 (probably), Takahisa Kandori developed the DEVA machine which was designed to create a special space allowing for the matter within it to shift into special forms. A sick and dying girl with an apparent incurable disease, Maki, was plugged into it and created a mirror version of her hometown, sealed off without hospitals and police stations.
▶ He was defeated by the Persona 1 Team, including Kei Nanjo.
▶ The Nanjo Corporation acquires all the research of the scientists involved and start their own. Keep in mind that Kei’s relationship with his parents basically amounts to nothing; he was raised by his butler since he was a child, Yamaoka, who died protecting him in the first game, and is being raised to be the heir (his new bodyguard “operates under the principle that the prestige of the Nanjo Group is more important than Nanjo himself”). Moreover, he went to Oxford in England right after his high school graduation to study, so he was probably unaware of what was going on.
▶ The scientist from this acquisition are people who have all worked with Kandori so they know about Persona, Persona users, and so on.
▶ I have no idea if by then the Kirijo and Group and Nanjo Group were still one of the same, but it’s very likely they still where. Besides: “Despite this, the Kirijo Group works closely with the Nanjo Group and has a business motto of “Two in Harmony Surpasses One in Perfection”
▶ Research is conducting on developing Anti-Shadow androids. To make them able to call Persona, they use the Plumes of Dusk and also take sick and dying patients and use their memories to give the androids a personality.
▶ In 1999 in the EP world, Kandori is resurrected with the power of rumors and begins amongst other things to work on creating another Deva system, along with previous research which includes separating Jokers from victims and theory on how to go about creating artificial persona users.
▶ Labrys is activated in April 1999, goes ‘berserk’ and is deactivated.
▶ Kei Nanjo also finds out that his company is paying for the research Kandori was working on and vows to fix the mistakes.
▶ He mentions they were also working with the government. The government was aware of the research going on, something Persona 4: Arena mentions.
▶ 1999 Shadow Incident
▶ By the time the two companies separate, you have scientists who have worked with SEBEC, Nanjo and Kirijo groups, have copies of Kandori’s research which probably includes the DEVA system and…
▶ I refuse to believe Kei is not in some way involved in the Shadow Operatives.
There’s actually more, but I never realized before that the Kirijo corp probably had SEBEC alumni working for them. I also may have gotten a few details wrong, so I apologize if I did!
this is stupid why did i make this
well Persona 4 Arena and Dangan Ronpa are both games about High School kids stuck in a school and forced to maim each other by a toy bear
I drew Akihikerrr. The P4a designs of the P3 crew have grown on me.
Almost finished with Persona 4 Arena!
My favorite characters to play as are Akihiko and Yosuke. I CAN’T PLAY AS CHIE. HOW THE FUCK DO YOU FIGHT AS HER? ajskfdlsaf :’(
