Are you ready to meet a new character from Persona 5? Then say hello to Morgana! Atlus has shared with us a trailer for the team’s mascot, which you can check below. We also have some new information on Morgana’s role in the team. And be sure to check the bonus video interview after that with voice actress Cassandra Morris!
Every good team needs a mascot, and that job has been bestowed upon the anthropomorphic cat-like… thing known as Morgana. You’re probably thinking, “what are you talking about? That “thing” is obviously an adorable cat,” but we’ll have you know that Morgana (who absolutely hates being called a cat, by the way) is much more than that. This mysterious creature from another world is a professional thief and serves as a mentor figure to the disaffected youths in the Phantom Thieves. Most importantly, Morgana is the irreplaceable heart and soul of the team. Also, what other team in history has a mascot that can also TURN INTO A BUS?
