Robin Hood is a heroic outlaw in English folklore who, according to legend, was a highly skilled archer and swordsman. Traditionally depicted as being dressed in Lincoln green, he is often portrayed as "robbing from the rich and giving to the poor" alongside his band of Merry Men. Robin Hood became a popular folk figure in the late-medieval period, and continues to be widely represented in literature, films and television.
Robin Hood fought against the evil Sheriff of Nottingham who was loyal to Prince John who had stolen the throne from his brother, Richard. Later stories introduced the Guy of Gisbourne, an assassin sent for Robin’s head who eventually became part of a love triangle with Marian.
According to the comment in the Design Works, Robin Hood's design is based on the comic hero Superman. The prominent "RH" shield logo on his chest not only echos Superman's "S" shield, it also reflects the letter "A" on Akechi's attaché case, a symbolism of his desire for public recognition.
Robin Hood is one of Goro Akechi's Personas, and the Persona he uses while he is a party member. As later revealed, Akechi has the power of the Wild Card, and has access to another Persona, Loki, whom Akechi primarily used before he became a party member.
