—Morgana, Persona 5

Morgana is a playable character from Persona 5.

AppearancesEdit

DesignEdit

Morgana appears as a predominantly black cat with blue eyes and a white muzzle, paws, and tail tip who wears a yellow collar.

Morgana has the ability to shape shift into an anthropomorphic and biped form with a large head and eyes, where the collar turns into a yellow bandana in addition to gaining a utility belt. Morgana lacks any visible cat whiskers in this form.

PersonalityEdit

Morgana is a cat who dislikes being thought of as nothing more than just a cat, as it lessens Morgana's sense of individuality. Despite predominantly taking the form of one, he becomes irritated when called a "cat."

Despite his feminine name, he is in fact male, and constantly attempts to be more masculine than he naturally is. Morgana dislikes being seen as a cute cat and wishes to be viewed as manly, resulting in the Persona Zorro's masculine appearance. While he attempts to come off as gung-ho and confident, in reality he has little faith in himself and secretly dreads being abandoned and left alone, an insecurity that becomes extremely prominent after Futaba Sakura takes over as Navigator and shows herself to be far more naturally talented than he is at it, succumbing to a jealousy so deep he temporarily abandons the Phantom Thieves to prove to them and himself that he doesn't need to rely on them, instead becoming Haru Okumura's assistant when she attempts to infiltrate her father's Palace. After this backfires spectacularly, he comes to his senses and apologizes profusely, vowing to not let his ego and fears get in the way of his friendship with the Phantom Thieves again.

Morgana can seem incomprehensible at times. He tends to mew when nervous or excited, and becomes distracted and spaced when examining a Treasure for the first time, though he recovers fairly quickly.

Profile Edit

Persona 5Edit

Just Morgana

Morgana.

Morgana is a mysterious shapeshifting cat-like being that joins the protagonist in his heists. In the real world, Morgana simply appears as a normal cat and normal people cannot hear him talk in this form. However, the members of the members of the Phantom Thieves gain the ability to hear him talk, even when he is in his normal cat form, once they enter Mementos for the first time. Morgana becomes interested in the protagonist and Ryuji Sakamoto after meeting them, so he decides to teach them about the other side and watches the protagonist due to an interest in his power. Morgana is unsure of his origins and seeks answers, although he is convinced he was a human at some point.

Morgana can change into a variety of other forms, including a van that the Phantom Thieves use as transportation to explore the Mementos dungeon (though he cannot create air conditioning, which becomes a problem when entering the desert-based Futaba's Palace).

For most of the game, he remains a loyal friend and guide to the Palace and its mechanics. However, he quickly develops a rivalry with Ryuji, who Morgana dislikes for his clumsiness and sometimes foolhardy personality, while Ryuji becomes annoyed with Morgana's often superior attitude and overconfidence. After Futaba joins the team, this comes to a head when Ryuji jokingly points out during the beach trip that she is a naturally better Navigator and more generally useful than he is, which offends and upsets Morgana and leads to an argument between the two while the Phantom Thieves are debating whether to attack Kunikazu Okumura's Palace. He eventually storms out, deciding to show he can infiltrate a Palace by himself and prove he is not rendered obsolete by Futaba...and is almost immediately defeated by the Palace's Shadows, who only leave him alive because they do not regard him as a threat.

HaruAppears

Morgana on Haru's side.

He is saved and nursed back to health by Haru Okumura, who retains the ability to understand his cat form in the real world due to having been inside the Palace. After learning about her personal troubles, he decides to help her become a Phantom Thief despite her lack of a Persona at that time. When the true Phantom Thieves show up to steal Kunikazu's heart, Morgana introduces Haru as "Beauty Thief" and claims her to be a far better apprentice than the other Thieves-a claim that is immediately undercut by Haru's inexperience and shyness. After a couple attempts to maintain his dignity despite Haru's obvious incapability without her own Persona, he realizes he was acting irrationally and rejoins the team after they promise to help Haru as well.

When the party are defeated by Yaldabaoth at the core of Mementos, Morgana ends up in the Velvet Room and regain his memories. It is revealed that Morgana was created by Igor to assist the protagonist in his journey, after he was imprisoned and replaced by Yaldabaoth.

After defeating Yaldabaoth, Morgana seemingly vanishes from existence together with Palace and Mementos. However, during the day the protagonist is freed from his confinement, Morgana returns to Cafe Leblanc in cat form. He explains that the one that disappeared is his other world self and when he regained his consciousness, he was in Shibuya. He purposely didn't return earlier because it didn't feel right after disappearing that way, so he waited until the protagonist's return, much to the anger of the party. Hearing the protagonist's departure next month, Morgana decides to follow him and find a way to become a human, believing that even though he is not a human it doesn't mean he cannot become one.

In the epilogue, he is seen sabotaging a car with two spies before going on vacation together with the party.

ConfidantEdit

"Skillful infiltrations and escapes to all manner of places... There's even the possibility that you used special tools and had someone who manufactured them... ...Answer me!"
—Sae Niijima talking about Morgana, Persona 5

Morgana's Confidant ranks up automatically since April 15th as the story progresses. Maxing this Confidant makes Zorro evolve into Mercurius and unlocks the fusion of Futsunushi.

The item received by maxing Morgana's Confidant is Morgana's scarf, which can steal items through physical attack.

Trivia Edit

Morgana at E300:51

Morgana at E3

MorganaReal

Morgana working diligently for Atlus.

  • Morgana is actually the second talking cat in the series, the first being Lieutenant General Zula from Persona 2: Eternal Punishment.
  • Morgana appeared at 2016 E3 to promote Persona 5.[1]
  • In the Japanese version of the game, Morgana says "Nya~" which is the Japanese onomatopoeia equivalent of "meow."
  • In Japanese, Morgana uses the archaic pronoun 'wagahai' (吾輩), which has an arrogant tone. This may be a reference to Natsumi Soseki's 1905 satire novel "I am a Cat".[2]
  • Despite Morgana's opposition to be treated like a cat, Morgana explains a cat transforming into a vehicle is something engraved into (Japanese) people's mind, indirectly referencing the Catbus from the anime movie My Neighbor Totoro directed by Hayao Miyazaki.
    • In the Japanese version, Ann calls Morgana a "bakeneko," which is translated to "monster cat" in the English version.
    • Morgana's van form is based on the Citroën H Van.
    • Atlus created a real life Morgana-van.[3][4][5]It had a tail.[6]Morgana also came to see his ride.[7]
    • One of the early ideas was for Morgana to be a sports car, however, he would have been too small to fit the entire gang and so the idea was scrapped.[8]
  • Morgana's actual gender was initially made ambiguous. The name itself is traditionally used for females and the character is performed by female voice talents in both the Japanese and English versions. However, in the beginning of the story when the names of all party members are concealed, Morgana's voice is described as "boyish voice." Morgana also displays etiquette of a gentleman via "ladies first" formality and addressing female allies with the more respectful "Lady" title. Morgana's initial Persona Zorro is male even though few other major human characters in the series possess Personas of opposite gender or even genderlessness. After defeating first target in Mementos, Ann asks if Morgana is a boy or girl, to which Morgana identifies as male.
    • Ironically, despite being male and not liking to be seen as cute, some of Morgana's costumes are feminine.
Morgana plush

Morgana in plushie form.

  • A plushie Morgana comes with the Persona 5 Take Your Heart Premium Edition.
  • Morgana is the only playable character to be able to summon a Persona without requiring a Mask. Morgana's head has the appearance of a mask.
  • Morgana's code name is a direct reference of Monā, the Shift_JIS art mascot cat created by 2channel textboard users.
  • Morgana is the second Magician to specialize in Wind magic rather than Fire, the first being Yosuke Hanamura from Persona 4.
  • Just like Teddie, Morgana is seeking answers to his origins.
  • Morgana can wear DLC outfits based on the designs of Hee-ho-kun, Trish (in both her Persona and Persona 2 incarnations), Aigis and Teddie. Also available are costumes based on Gouto-Douji, Burroughs and a sheep from Catherine.
  • Morgana is the first Navigator that can do fighting and navigation at same time. Before Futaba joins, if Morgana is knocked out in battle he does not faint. Instead, he runs away to the back stage and becomes the Navigator. Any party member can still use any revival item or skill on him and put him back on front row.
  • When Morgana is under panic in battle, he makes bear-puns as a reference to Teddie.
  • Morgana's running animation in the Palace which transforms his legs into a swirling vortex comes straight from Doraemon's comical expression.[9]
  • When thinking of a way to reach the floating bank in Kaneshiro's Palace, Ryuji asks if Morgana can bring out some sort of flight tools. Morgana retorts that he is not some "robot cat" (Doraemon) who can source all kinds of futuristic gadgets from his fourth-dimensional pocket with the most recurring one being the Take-copter for flight.
  • When Morgana is transformed into a mouse in battle he will make noise reminiscent of Pikachu who is also voiced by Ikue Ōtani.
  • Through the game and Day Breakers, it is revealed Morgana had a crush on Ann Takamaki by love at first sight. However, his affection and special treatment (such as calling her Lady Ann) are never taken seriously by Ann. Later, if the player decides to date Ann on Valentine's Day, Morgana sighs which is unique and does not occur when other girls are chosen.
  • The slingshots he uses are apparently not meant for human use.
