Kasumi was first shown in the initial “Persona 5 The Royal” teaser trailer. In this teaser, she was depicted as a Shujin Academy first-year who was morally opposed to the actions of the Phantom Thieves.
Kasumi Yoshizawa Character Points
Since the game’s reveal, more information about Kasumi has been released. Some of the important points:
- Kasumi transfers to Shujin Academy at the same time as the protagonist.
- She likes the protagonist substantially.
- She is an award-winning rhythmic gymnast who has performed since middle school.
- Her persona is the eponymous “Cendrillon” (or “Cinderella,” in English), after the opera and fairy tale.
- Kasumi’s combat abilities revolve around “Bless” skills and physical attacks.
- Kasumi’s representative Major Arcana from the “Tarot of Marseilles” is “La Foi” (or “The Faith”), with a ripped card.
- An intention behind her design was “classic heroine.” She was also created for her Phantom Thief form to feel like it goes alongside the protagonist’s.
- Atlus has teased that there is a hidden side to her from the teaser trailer and what has been shown. This is uncovered in her confidant story.
- She enjoys eating tremendously, and has to hold herself back.
We also know that, at some point in the story, Kasumi Yoshizawa joins the Phantom Thieves. Within the parallel world of the Metaverse, all of the main characters bear code names in order to disguise themselves from the public’s consciousness.
It stands to reason, then, that Kasumi will also have her own code name, however this is one piece of information Atlus has yet to disclose.
So the question is, what do you think Kasumi Yoshizawa’s Phantom Thief code name could end up being? Leave a comment below and let us know what you think!
