The Director of District Public Prosecutors Office is an unnamed character in Persona 5.



Persona 5Edit

Formally the Director of the Special Investigation Department under the Tokyo District Public Prosecutors Office. While his department has been established to independently investigate serious cases like corruptions of high ranking government officials and politicians and corporate tax evasion, he himself has been bribed by Masayoshi Shido to cooperate with Goro Akechi to proceed their plans of killing Shido's enemies and finding a scapegoat for their crimes.

The director appoints Sae Niijima to lead the investigation of the recent cases of mental disorder and the involvement of the Phantom Thieves of Hearts, something Sae is initially honored with but later baffled of because of her relatively fresh qualifications in the department which turns out to be part of Goro's grand plot of framing the Phantom Thieves. Regardless of which ending the player proceeds, the director will die the same way as the other victims of the mysterious mental disorder, likely because his Shadow Self has been slain by Goro in his own Palace. His last word is "Shi...Shido!"

After his death, a provisional director is appointed to assume his post. This deputy only acts in covering up Shido's confession to his crimes who is still largely supported by the general public to assume the seat of prime minister afterward. He also dismisses Sae from her duty temporarily because of her dedication in prosecuting Shido.
