Persona 5 / Persona 5 Royal - Yusuke, the Emperor Confidant

The Emperor Confidant – Yusuke Kitagawa

Yusuke is a tall, dark, and handsome fellow. Methodical and quick-thinking, Yusuke kicks ass with an assault rifle and a katana. When fighting, he uses the mask of the Fox while summoning his persona, Goemon.

Despite his calm demeanor, Yusuke may come off as rather awkward at times. Because he was raised in a sheltered environment, his approach to others may come off as stalker-like and creepy.

Unlocking

You can find Yusuke in Shibuya Underground Station after school most days. After you max out, you can summon Odin.
