This guy. Right here.
I like the way the drama discs characterize him. Sure, he’s the quiet/silent guy, but he’s just so… cool. I like to think that under his stoic facade, he’s really a sweet guy who’s somewhat afraid of letting others get close to him. but enough of the headcanon.
That said, he’s an absolute genius, charismatic badass. His Persona evocation in FES (the animated cut scene) was amazing, as well as his showdown with Nyx. I genuinely like him for who he is, even if there’s no ‘definite’ personality, other than what the Drama Discs set out for him. I personally think it’s amazing, real or not, that someone would selflessly sacrifice himself in the face of death to protect the friends and world that he come to love over the course of his year in Tatsumi Port Island. He is my role model, and someone who I aspire to be more like. What he was to his friends, I want to be like that.
That’s why he’s my favorite character.
