P5 Necronomicon

Necronomicon as in Persona 5

"Contract...I am thou, thou art I...The forbidden wisdom has been revealed. No mysteries...no illusions shall deceive you any longer."
—Necronomicon, Persona 5

Necronomicon (ネクロノミコン?) is a Persona in the series.

HistoryEdit

The Necronomicon is a fictional grimoire (tome of magic). It was first mentioned in the short story The Hound written by H. P. Lovecraft, but its exact origin is the subject of debate. The book subsequently also appeared in stories of Lovecraft's followers. The Necronomicon has since gained a cult following and various fake "replicas" of the book are circulating.

In the context of Lovecraft's works, the Necronomicon is a tome detailing the truth behind the various ancient cosmic beings that have inhabited Earth and continue to influence humans for their own ends. Written in the 8th century by the "mad Arab" Abdul Alhazred, it both functions as a means of imparting the forbidden knowledge of the ancient ones, and a source of danger as those who read it risk going mad from its knowledge.

TriviaEdit

  • In keeping up with the theme of theft of Persona 5, the design of the UFO is based on the infamous rumor that extraterrestrial visitors abduct living beings on the earth to their ship and conduct inhumane experiments. It is also analogous to Futaba's role as a data analyst and her social alienation.
