Persona 5 / Persona 5 Royal - Akechi, the Justice Confidant

The Justice Confidant – Goro Akechi

A high school student with a keen sense of detail, Goro is widely known as “The Second Advent of the Detective Prince.” Although he appears quite popular, there is a darker side to Goro. His past haunts him, his mother having committed suicide and his father having abandoned him. Growing up, he was a loner, unable to befriend anyone. These circumstances fueled Goro’s longing to become a detective.

Despite his past, Goro feels a sense of fulfillment by joining up with the Phantom Thieves of Hearts. This grants him a glimpse of the happiness he has been longing for. Goro still feels bothered as there are still some conflicts within him, though.

His character is possibly inspired by Kogoro Akechi, a fictional detective created by the Japanese writer Ranpo Edogawa. This might also branch out as inspiration from Sherlock Holmes.

The information here is written in conjunction with our writer team from Japan and may receive updates and changes from time to time. Once the English version of Persona 5 Royal is officially released, we will revisit and finalize this page.
