The Apostle Arcana or Priest Arcana (神官, Shinkan)? in the Japanese version, is an Arcana appearing in Persona 5 Strikers.

Overview

"This man bears the "Apostle Arcana.
Representing both fairness and compassion, the Apostle walks the road of life upholding his beliefs as well as his perceptions of the law."
—Lavenza, Persona 5 Strikers

The Priest (神官, Shinkan)? is the Japanese term for the Hierophant Arcana of the Thoth Tarot deck.

English occultist Aleister Crowley was critical of the Christian faith, and he incorporated symbols of various pagan religions and mythological gods into the Thoth Tarot deck. As a result, the Thoth Hierophant depicts a pagan spiritual leader, whereas the Hierophant (法王, Houou)? in other decks specifically refers to the Catholic Pope.
