- Persona 5 Strikers: Minor Character
Aoi lived with her husband Zenkichi and daughter Akane in Tokyo. Because Zenkichi was often busy at work, Aoi was Akane's sole caretaker. However, two years prior to the events of Strikers, Aoi was accidentally ran over by Jyun Owada, who had been driving while drunk. However, the crime was pinned on Owada's secretary, whose murder is suspected to have been ordered by Owada (at the time it had been written off as a suicide). Although Zenkichi tried to investigate the truth, he had his evidence destroyed and the police forced him to step down under the premise of him being an associate of the victim. He was forced to back out after being blackmailed, threatening his daughter's life if he proceeds with the pursuit, knowing that he would otherwise cross the incredibly dangerous Masayoshi Shido's path. Afterward, Zenkichi and Akane moved to Kyoto, where her grandparents live.
Due to the incident, Akane has grown to become resentful of Zenkichi, partly also because he used to consider her a burden, and she was more often than not left alone at home. She becomes obsessed with the Phantom Thieves solely because she thought that they could defeat the police.
