Innocent Sin[edit | edit source]

"Persona-user of the Masked Circle serving King Leo. An energetic cosplayer girl who's convinced she's a reincarnated warrior."
—Introductory Description

A 13-year-old girl with a very lively imagination, Akari Hoshi fashioned herself as the reincarnation of an ancient Mayan warrior, Ixquic. In the same vein, she entered the Masked Circle as a recruit of sorts under King Leo and was sent to delay the team led by Tatsuya Suou when they tried to interfere with the Masked Circle's plans to destroy both Smile Hirasaka and the Aerospace Museum.

She used her Persona, Reverse Pairika, along with Belphegor to ambush Tatsuya at Smile's bathroom and was defeated there. Next she appeared in the Aerospace Museum, trapped aboard a model plane as the museum burned around her. Maya Amano leapt to her rescue despite her pyrophobia, overcoming her fears. She was offended the bombs were still going off when she was still inside and confronted King Leo about this; his only response was to take her hostage as he detonated both Smile and GOLD Gym; she, however, managed to break his hold, allowing her to escape with the heroes.

Once free, at Sumaru's shore, she vowed to put the Masked Circle behind and began drawing manga, the first of which would be a story of five heroes performing good deeds.

She initially cares very little for her own life, as she really doesn't like either her parents or the life she leads, and carries a large papier-mâché sword.

Eternal Punishment[edit | edit source]

"Very spirited girl who thinks she is a reincarnated warrior of some sort."
—Her introduction, Persona 2: Eternal Punishment

In the Eternal Punishment timeline, she mostly hangs around the Giga Macho music store, hoping to locate some of the rumored demons that live there.

It is possible to obtain two rumors from her, one called "100km/h Hag appears in the Seedy CD" after clearing the Smile Mall dungeon and the other one called "200km/h Fogey appears in the Seedy CD" after finishing the Undersea Ruins dungeon. Both of these rumors are required to gain access to the upper floors of the Seedy CD.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • While not being an executive, Akari is actually a very highly-ranked member in the Masked Circle hierarchy, as she has her own demon bodyguard in Belphegor and commands a small squadron of Leo Masks. Furthermore, one Masked Circle member in Yumezaki refers to her as "Lady Ixquic." Persona World would later expand on this, clarifying that Akari does not only work under King Leo, she is his right hand, and that Belphegor was a personal gift from Joker himself.
