Welcome to London, more specifically the Thames' Edge University, the acclaimed institution of higher education. As an attractive University for eyes all across the world, offering a plethora of degrees, courses and specialisations, it's no doubt that its attracted the attention of the world. And from there, one could go down any path of life they'd like, providing they put in the effort. As the University's motto states: "Reperio vestri propositi." - Find your purpose.

Purpose. A driving force that gives meaning to life; a fuel for humanity, a goal that all seek. Purpose is many things, and yet in each iteration its the same. Whether the physical actions one makes or the principles behind their individuality, purpose always comes back to defining their existence. Without it, many will find life unpleasant, unguided and empty. And with that in mind, humankind has constantly searched and created purposes of its own, reasons to move forward through the harshest of winters, the most blistering summers and the tribulations that the Earth has to offer. It sets them ahead of all living organisms. It encourages those to create, the invent, to desire and to conquer. Both for the betterment of good and the enhancement of all evil, purpose is everywhere. Once removed, one would find themselves a husk. Beneath every human is a manifestation of their purpose. Reflections of cruel, violent purposes mirror into a world beyond the naked eye. A realm locked away from the common man holds the darkest forms of motives.

Shadows, they are called. Figments of ones' own worst desires melt together into abominations unrecognisable to the real world. Very little stands between your world and theirs. Worst still, only a select few can enter the world under their own will. Any other case requires forceful manipulation, a transporter taking them there with potentially malicious intent. There are, however, ways to combat the shadows, to best the hearts and to correct the purposes of the vulgar. By using the forms of Persona, one could test the fate of one's desires and look to fix them.

But you're just a student of Thames' Edge University, either a newly inducted student or a returning one. You could be from the local area, elsewhere in the United Kingdom or an international student entering a new culture. Things are normal. Things seem okay. Your world is woven into the obscurity of the people around you. All except a single binding factor. Upon waking up every morning, forcing those eyelids open at the crack of a burdened sunrise, you can't help but sadly, angrily or hopelessly ask yourself the same question. It's been the same question that has haunted you since the very beginning. Now at the final steps into the fully fledged world, a husk looks at you in the mirror and mouths the same words you do...


"What is my purpose?"



Hello, Ladies and Gentlemen, to Persona - The Beholder! This is a roleplay set, obviously, within the Persona framework. First and foremost, I'd like to make sure those reading know it's not going to be a game-driven thread, more of a narrative that doesn't rely on RNG and tabletop systems. Taking more of a story route, we've already opened up an entirely original scenario set within a new city, nation and continent. Currently, I'm hoping that this roleplay will feature an adaptable story, shifting characters and a deeper focus on the cast's development as both people and persona users. As noted before, the 'Theme' of this Persona rendition is 'Purpose'; the balance of morally corrupt, the morally sound and the lack thereof.

To keep things interesting, a lot of the story may follow around a mysterious group that preceded your own, your interactions with them, conflicts against them, or however you decide to approach them. Throughout discovering your characters' inner confidence, meaning and existential reasoning, you'll uncover greater plots that offer several paths you can go down. Either taking the good, the bad or the middle ground route will always come with its consequences and benefits. After all, university students, or anyone as a matter of fact, taking on the role of a persona user can be a heavy burden. When dealing with people's purposes and desires, it's not unlikely to find the pressure building on their shoulders. And so, we'll have a surprising blend of moral shifting, or strengthening if you choose to work only on the improvement of a character overtime.

I'm probably not wording this very well, but to summarise - character narrative set within the persona universe, unlocking personas, fighting shadows with and without them, unveiling larger plots and questioning ones character about who they might truly be down inside. I don't want to reveal anything too much in this initial post, but if you want to know anything specific please don't hesitate to ask me down below. More information will obviously come with the OOC if we can get enough solid interest, as will the character sheet. I'm hopeful we can take this off and begin a long, interesting story that will entertain us all as players! Whether its about the greater story, character specific inquiries or the fun little details such as "What is the music style or colour scheme?" are welcome! For those interested, I thank you for reading through this and I can't wait to see where we go from here!

@Concept@AurrorianYou boys are more than welcome!

Tomorrow I'll be hooking you all up with a discord invite, we tend to use that as an OOC a bit more than the actual OOC because of convenience.

I’ve never played a Persona game besides Persona Q. I have done a few Persona RPs though... I’m interested.
