Hermit Confidant Guide


Due to a case of social anxiety that reaches the point of mild agoraphobia, Futaba is a complete shut-in. Instead, she chooses to live a hermit lifestyle. She only communicates with the world via the internet. However, she still encounters a lot of negativity online. When she goes outside, Futaba hides behind the protagonist to avoid being seen. She occasionally wears a variety of masks to conceal her identity.

Her room is a means of sanctuary and refuge from the chaos and noise of the outside world. She enjoys playing fantasy and role-playing video games as a form of escapism. Even then, Sakura is growing bored with them.

Because she disconnected herself from the world outside, Futaba is lonely. She lives without passion or enthusiasm. She suffers from both suicidal thoughts and depression. When you first meet her, Futaba hates herself so much that she suppresses her desire to live. It thus transfers to her Shadow Self. Her Shadow Self has a more helpful personality than other shadows, only desiring Futaba’s happiness.

Futaba changes after meeting the Protagonist and the other Phantom Thieves. She opens up to them and gradually becomes more relaxed around them. Once completely comfortable, she shows her childish side and enjoys teasing her friends, particularly Morgana and Yusuke.

She is talented with technology. Accompanying that is her obsession with computers. She shows skill in coding and hacking. This reflects on Necronomicon from which she navigates.

Futaba really enjoys eating food. She also likes cats. When she realizes Morgana is a part of the Phantom Thieves, she begins teasing him regularly.

People hailed her as a prodigy in coding, programming, and hacking. However, this all changed when a car accident killed her mother, cognitive psychologist Wakaba Isshiki. Because of this, her relatives blame the prodigy programmer based on a suicide note left by Wakaba. She chose not to attend school ever since graduating from middle school. At her age, she would have been a first-year student in high school. The only close friend she has is Sojiro Sakura who adopted Futaba after Wakaba’s death.

    • Technically not a drop out. High School is not required in Japan. After finishing middle school, it is legal to go straight to work. If you do it, you will near assuredly be blue collar work though (or service industry).
