Personas of the Aeon Arcana are often divine mythological figures. They typically have varying abilities and attributes, though many of them have an affinity with Light, including the Arcana's ultimate Personas, Metatron and Kaguya.
A common theme for characters representing the Aeon Arcana is their attempts to fully understand themselves, as well as the world around them. In both of the Aeon Arcana's appearances, the Social Link characters in question were unfamiliar with the way the real world works, and struggled to discover their own place in this unfamiliar world.
This Arcana is only present in Persona game re-releases.
List of Personas
Persona 3 FES
The Aeon Arcana Social Link is represented by SEES member Aigis, and the Social Link can be initiated after December 30th. Unlike other SEES related Social Links, however, the protagonist does not require a certain rank in either Academics, Charm, or Courage to date Aigis. The Aeon Arcana powers up every time the protagonist interacts with Aigis, where he helps her understand the concept of life, and her confused feelings towards the protagonist and herself.
Completing the Aeon Arcana will allow Aigis to understand her purpose in life, and her feelings towards the protagonist. Aigis would then grant the protagonist her charred screw, bestowing the ultimate form of the Aeon Arcana, Metatron, attendant to the infinite.
In The Answer, Aigis herself will have full access to all Personas of the Aeon Arcana, provided that she is at an appropriate level.
Persona 4 Golden
The Aeon Arcana Social Link is represented by the new character Marie.
The Aeon Arcana route focuses on the protagonist helping Marie recover her missing memories, as well as helping her learn about the world outside of the Velvet Room. With only an ancient "Bamboo Comb" as the only link to her memories, the protagonist works with Marie to try and discover the comb's origin, with no luck. In the end, Marie gives up the search, and focuses on making new memories with the protagonist. She gives him the "Bamboo Comb" as a symbol of their bond, allowing the fusion of Kaguya, the Moonlit Night’s Visitor.
If the Social Link is maxed before December 31st, a new dungeon called Hollow Forest will be available on February 13th.
Persona 4 Arena Ultimax
Marie is the sole representative of the Aeon Arcana in Ultimax, wielding Kaguya as her Persona. While Aigis is also a playable character, she is of the Fool Arcana rather than the Aeon or Chariot Arcana, due to her awakening to the Wild Card.
|Aigis||Persona 3 FES|

- In Persona 3 FES, Persona 3 Portable and Persona 4 Golden, the card of Aeon Arcana in-game is gold instead of blue like the other cards.
- Both Aigis and Marie, the characters who represent the Aeon Arcana Social Link in Persona 3 FES and Persona 4 Golden respectively, have an affinity with the Velvet Room, with the former being a guest and the latter being a resident.
