Arsène as he appears in Persona 5

"I am thou, thou art I. For the justice you believe in, let the curse befall on those who do not reflect upon themselves. Now, begin!"
—Arsène, Persona 5

Arsène (アルセーヌ, Arusēnu)? is a Persona in the series.


Arsène Lupin is a fictional gentleman thief created by Maurice Leblanc. He was known for targeting criminals or those who were much worse than himself, making him an anti-hero of sorts within his own stories.



Persona 5Edit

The protagonist obtains Arsène, his Initial Persona, after he confronts a great darkness enveloping the city following a "certain event."[1] Character designer Shigenori Soejima explained that Arsène was designed with an "old school vibe" in mind. Arsène's wings are meant to evoke the image of a thief's cape in the viewer's mind and represent the idea that a thief can go wherever he wants.[2]

In the game's prologue, Arsène's form is darkened, much like Izanagi's form is obscured in the fog when summoned during the protagonist's dream after he arrives in Inaba from Persona 4.
