The Sun Arcana (太陽?) is a recurring Arcana in the Persona series.

OverviewEdit

Persona of the Sun Arcana are commonly Persona excelling in Light and Fire-based attacks. These Personas are typically mythological figures directly related to the sun, light, or fire.

"So... for me, or you, or anyone... the meaning of our lives is something we make but don't see."
—Akinari Kamiki

The Sun Arcana Social Link is represented by Akinari Kamiki, a teenager diagnosed with a life-threatening genetic disease. The protagonist can create the Social Link after advancing the Hanged Man Arcana Social Link up to Lv. 3 or above and retrieves his fountain pen. Furthermore, Akinari can also only be interacted during Sundays.

Through the protagonist's interaction with Akinari, he helps him in understanding his purpose in life and helps him to overcome his grief of his disease. By the end of the Social Link, Akinari will give the protagonist his notebook. It allows access to the Ultimate Persona of the Sun Arcana, Asura King, "the grand being."

Persona 4Edit

"I'm not going to run from my own life anymore. After all, I'm the only person who can live it."
—Yumi Ozawa
"I figured it was time to grab ahold of my dream, instead of letting it slip through my fingers. "
—Ayane Matsunaga

The Sun Arcana Social Link can be initiated after the protagonist chooses to join one of the school's culture club. The player may choose between the Drama Club, Yumi Ozawa or the Symphonic Band, Ayane Matsunaga.

Should the protagonist join the Drama Club, he helps Yumi in mending her relationship with her father. On the other hand, should the protagonist choose to join the Symphonic Band, the protagonist helps Ayane in having more confidence in herself.

In either event, completing the Sun Arcana Social Link bestows the protagonist the Ultimate Persona of the Sun Arcana, Asura.
