New Character Jose in Persona 5 Royal

Jose is a new character in Persona 5 Royal. He was first featured in the Morgana Report #4 video as a non-player character who players will meet and befriend.

Based on the video, the Phantom Thieves of Hearts encounter Jose at Mementos’ entrance on May 7th, as indicated by the in-game calendar. Jose was introduced as someone collecting flowers to learn about humans. He will provide unique services not found in the original game.

Design

Persona 5 Royal - Who is Jose

Jose is a young boy with yellow eyes and a puppet-like appearance. His outfit consists of a white raincoat, boots with star and moon patterns, black leggings and a black pair of gloves. He also wears a pair of goggles around his neck.

Jose’s strange eyes could suggest a connection with the Velvet Room attendant twins Caroline and Justine. This, however, was not confirmed in any official material.

Heavenly bodies like stars, the sun, and the moon are frequently associated with Jose, based on the Morgana Report #4 video.  Jose’s clothes, his services menu, and the mysterious stamps which can be given to him take on these shapes. This may imply a yet-unrevealed background for the character.

Services

Trade Items
