I have been reading and watching some Persona 5 and to be frank, I may as well add some elemental from. if not remake this Universes.
For anyone in the known Persona is Roleplaying Game, taken in a Urban Fantasy with Demon and Shadow then theme after Mythology. In fact it a part of Megami Tensei Universes, with Persona being a spinoff of Shin Megami Tensei. The idea that the Character using a being call a Persona, a extend part of themselves they can use within the one of the dimension of collective consciousness. The Main Character had a Give call the "Wildcard" where beside they own personas, they wield mitil-Persona for some simple custom building.
And as you can tell I done this before and wild I could say it no longer canon, it not all lost, just adding more stuff, changed some stuff that would be more fitting for other and of course, Adding some theming from Persona 5! For start, the New MC is can be a Phantom Thieves at best, He had persona awaken by said action, unlike the other Character they had some way to awaken they own. He does wear a mask, and he does take it off by ripping it off to summon his persona(s).
So you would be wondering who would be the New MC? Well it John, Yeah. I think it fair to say that he would be a fitting Main Character. He already a new boy in my setting, so it not true in this one. Now that doesn't that Edward and Pinku the former MC are gone, and why would they? They had Character of themselves. They are part of the the player grope like the Champion of Magic. I haven't given them a Team Name, so it best to go with Epsilon Champions.
With John Alphaground enter to his new school. He letter Paul and Tekuno, they would be Justice and Strength Link resentfully. They are the help him settle in the school, Do to Paul being the Leader of the School Council and Tekuno being daughter of the Sport Coach as well being the Leader of Swim Team. However do to afternoon one of the school student had fall unconscious wild heading to class, with the one around, he came to help the person, he find himself to Velvet Room a room located between consciousness and subconsciousness. This time, looking like a hotel entrance, where Igor great John, explaining every his fate and the idea of the velvet room. Where he make his contracted and...
Awaken in the nurse office. Think it was a dream... then he note the other next to him the person that he try to save. Then next he heard the Paul and Tekuno talking to each other outside the room. "Then it stettler we go and save them and awaken them?" "Indeed. Let go before the next classes." As the two, pull a large paper on the wall and to his shock they enter into the paper as some kind portal. He didn't know what just happen, he walk to the paper, touch the paper, his hand going into the paper, with no idea what to do, he enter into the paper.
Inside the paper was a white vold, like a blank slate at 1st, but he then see something, coming across what seem like building, a sky and colored. Then monster with Mask who was ready to attack, but was stop by a sword and a polearm swing at the monster, Paul and Tekuno came in ask if they was Okay. But then more of those Monster, Shadow they call them. Was coming in, As the two wrip out what seem like Water Gun and aim at they head and fair, with that two being of mate came out, one of a knight of silver steel and another was a mage of flowing water. Yep, Paul and Tekuno are using evoker. After seeing that, he felt something, as his face was burning, a voice call within him, as his Persona come forces, grabbing some tool, he was able to deal some of Shadow Monster, with Paul and Tekuno being amazed by his skill and soon realized that he isn't a sleeper, a person trap within the dreamwave. The dimension they are at, made from people dream and imagination. As Paul point out that he got a persona already meaning they wouldn't be a shadow copy of him running around. Tekuno soon remind them of another person that would be a sleeper. One known as Edward McDeviant. She also ask John to join with us seeing that we could use some extra hands as they head fever into.
To put it simple, They find Edward and his Shadow Self, mooking his real self, a boss battle with Paul being the back support if need be and Tekuno help. Edward was able to take accepted his weaken shadow and become his persons. And do this that, he disappear, Paul given a congrats to the mission to save Edward, as he said they would had been awakened to the real world. Once they return to the real world, they pull John in what been going on. They explained that most people had been hit by a deep sleep, a sleep that they never awaken from and after some time, they soon become brain dead. As they had a mental shutdown. They also explained the deal with the dreamwave, where they said they can access by going to painting. The two carry a paper that let them to what they call, the Blank Easel, using as a way to enter into her dreamcave, a thurm they use to location within the dreamwave.
They came to check up on Edward, who was resting in nurse office. He note that he had a dream with them. But also had this feeling that something happen with him. He feel like to discard it for now. As he make his introduction to John, start his Magician Arcana bond, something the he can feel too. After someday, Edward and John was hanging out at the school lunch, where Paul and Tekuno ask John to come alone. To report to him that another student fall unconscious Sore Thunder Hikari and they thought if they could use you help with them. He agreed to but then could start Edward came in overheard and put everything together. He ask them if he could join. Paul said, that too dangerous wild Tekuno think it would be a good idea, seeming that he did had a persona too. And this start of the 1st dungeons.
