"This world is made to punish humans for their sinful pasts. They are put through an endless cycle of reincarnation. Where were you before...in your past life? Another country? Or maybe...another world..."
—Chizuru to Maya Amano
Chizuru Ishigami is an antagonist in Persona 2: Eternal Punishment. She is a mysterious user of Wang Long fortune telling and member of the New World Order.
Chizuru is a famous fortune teller who quickly became famous due to her accurate Wang Long fortune telling and uses her status as a celebrity to spread rumors for the New World Order. Eriko Kirishima comes to Sumaru City in order to investigate her connection to the organization, though whether or not she is aided by Maya Amano and the other party members depends on the player's choices.
Should the player take Eriko as the fifth party member, the group will head to Sumaru TV where they'll confront Chizuru after she transforms Junko Kurosu into a Joker. Afterwards, she joins with the revived Takahisa Kandori and leaves with him for the Undersea Ruins, though she questions why someone like him would be happy serving as a mere pawn for Tatsuzou Sudou. Eventually, she and Kandori are confronted by the party along with Tatsuya Suou. They are both defeated, and, despite Kei Nanjo or Eriko's pleading, stay behind in the collapsing Undersea Ruins to die.
She does not use a Persona in combat but creates duplicates of herself to fool her opponents and attacks with a small knife that she carries. She casts spells by burning a spell card which range from status ailments to powerful Earth spells. She is strong to all magic but is weak to physical attacks.
