The head monk is a nameless character that appears in the story. Later on, he indirectly appears as the rumor demon, the Jumping Geezer.
Persona 2: Innocent SinEdit
- "A strict but kind priest who often lends his assistance to Fujii and Yukino. He seems to be a master of a traditional martial art."
- —Introductory Description
If Tatsuya talks to one of the young monks in Goketsuji beforehand, it is revealed that when the elderly head monk trains in the mountains, he is mistaken by outsiders as a mythical beast for his swift movement.
After returning back to the entrance of Mt. Katatsumuri, Tatsuya can talk to a hiker who "spotted" the Jumping Geezer, which is actually a misinterpretation of the head monk. If Tatsuya spreads the rumor and ascends back into the mountains, the Jumping Geezer can be encountered. After defeating it, its Jumping Geta can be traded to the rumor-giver for a Holylight Card.
