Sumaru City 1

Sumaru City is the main setting for Persona 2: Eternal Punishment. It's a fictional Japanese seaside city composed of 6 wards. The name was taken from an in-game historical figure known as Kiyotada Sumaru, a feudal warlord who once ruled the city during the Period Of The Warring States.

It differs from its Innocent Sin counterpart in quite a few ways.

  • Lotus Plaza: The Mall of Rengedai. Establishments and services include:

Kasu High is a reform institution for delinquent boys, mainly for those who were kicked out from Seventh HS. As a result, many of the students there consider Seventh HS students as bitter enemies, spreading all sorts of rumors about them and their school. Apart from the student council, the strongest among the students is named the leader, and is obligated to maintain order within the campus. Eikichi currently holds the position under the moniker "Captain Death". Many ghost stories are often connected to Kasu High since it was built over a bomb shelter presumably used during WWII.

Toshiko, the perpetually spaced-out cashier on the ground floor, is notorious for hoarding rare CDs until rumors are spread about their existence.

    • Kuzunoha Detective Agency: Run by Daisuke Todoroki, a former gumshoe and part-time Devil Summoner, this is the place where rumors given to the party are spread around the city for a fee. Tamaki Uchida serves as Todoroki's assistant, and handles the party's magazine raffle entries.

Only accessible early in the story, Mt. Mifune (蝸牛山?, lit. "Snail Mountain") is where the Morimoto Sanitarium is located.
