The Protagonist of Persona 3 is a transfer student enrolling in Gekkoukan High School. Following the tradition of Shin Megami Tensei series, he is a silent protagonist, where his personality is based upon players' actions and decisions. He is frequently shown listening to his earphones, and having his hands inside his pockets.

The Protagonist in Persona 3 is first seen departing to the Dorm in Port Island. During that time, he experiences the Dark Hour, and is confused upon the sudden change of the surroundings and the sudden halt of his earphones functioning, though he takes the hour in stride, seemingly unaffected. Upon reaching the dorm, he encounters a child, who promptly gives him a signing book, giving players the opportunity to name him. The Protagonist transfers to Gekkoukan High School at the next day, and befriends Junpei Iori. His invitation to study as a transfer student is later revealed that due to his capability to adapt in the Dark Hour, he was moved to the co-ed Dorm so his potential can be monitored.

During a full moon, one of the Shadow attacks, causing the Protagonist to awaken his initial Persona, Orpheus. The summoning sequence, however, was halted as Thanatos bursts forth from Orpheus' head, tearing apart Orpheus and slays the Shadows. After dispatching remaining Shadows, the Protagonist faints and was taken to the Hospital. While unconscious, he awakens in the Velvet Room, where he learns about his abilities. The Protagonist later learns about the nature of the Shadows and the existence of SEES, and eventually joins SEES. Out of all characters to appear in Persona 3, the Protagonist is the only character accessible to the Wild Card ability.

The Protagonist' past is later revealed after Aegis' memories are restored. In year 1999, when Death escapes the Kirijo group, Aegis was dispatched and in hot pursuit of the Shadow. It is during Aegis' confrontation with Death, during the Dark Hour, caused the protagonist' parents death. Presumably, the protagonist survives due to his potential of being active in the Dark Hour. Aegis, knowing that she cannot defeat Death, sealed a portion of Death inside the Protagonist, thus amplifying the protagonist's capabilities of summoning multiple Personas.

In SEES' final confrontation with Nyx, the bonds he has forged with SEES and his other friends give him power to fight the sorrow, depression, and apathy of humankind, which were what drew Nyx to Earth, by letting him create The Universe Arcana with the help of Igor. With the power of the The Universe, and the cheering on of his comrades he ascends to Nyx' true body, the moon to combats Nyx itself in a one-on-one battle. He reaches his full potential and uses the final arcana, The Universe to perform the Great Seal, creating the miracle of sealing Nyx.

The Protagonist clings to life for two months after fighting Nyx, he, unlike others, retained his memories regarding the Dark Hour and Nyx, in order to keep the promise he made to meet his friends on Graduation Day. Once his oath is fulfilled, he falls asleep in Aegis' lap, smiling.





Orpheus' Awakening:



Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 FES (ペルソナ3 フェス, Perusona 3 Fesu) is an epilogue and enhancement for Persona 3. It serves as the 5th entry in the Persona Series, and it contains an estimated 30 additional hours of gameplay over the original Persona 3, most of which comes in the form of an epilogue called Episode Aegis in Japan and The Answer in the localization. According to the games director, the term FES stems from the word Festival. It was developed for the PlayStation 2.




Persona 3 Portable (ペルソナ3ポータブル, Perusona 3 Pōtaburu) is an enhanced port of Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3, released for the PSP. The game allows the player to choose the gender of the protagonist, which possibly opens up new routes and scenarios in the story. The theme of the game revolves around the "butterfly effect", reflecting the changes that happen should the player pursue the path of one protagonist over the other.

Minato is the hardcore win gai.

Although you're wrong, Minato doesn't simply go to sleep at the end,

He dies, as explained in The Answer. It represents him sacrificing himself for humanity, and becoming a sort of Messiah, much like Jesus. His soul is part of the Great Seal, though, according to Persona 4, Elizabeth is attempting to save him.

The Answer is gay though.

But yeah, Minato is awesome.

My bad there, you're right, I just brought that information from the Wikipedia without checking much, lol.

You think Minato looks gay? Hmm... I think he looks like an emo, lol.

Nah, looks like pretty kewl gai.

Though, it's kinda funny, as Minato is the complete opposite of an emo, as he is highly sociable, intelligent, capable, and is not a ******.

If you're referring to me calling the Answer gay, it's because it's story is retarded, Aigis is the only character who isn't retarded (Aside from Igor and Elizabeth), and the entire game consists of nothing more then hardcore grinding that would put WoW to shame.
