P5 Royal Consultant Arcana.png

The Councillor Arcana, also known as Consultant Arcana (顧問官, Komonkan)? in the Japanese version, is an Arcana appearing in Persona 5 Royal.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Like the Aeon Arcana, the Councillor is not found in standard tarot decks. The Councillor Arcana is the El Gran Tarot Esoterico's equivalent to the Magician Arcana and is numbered I. While upright, it is a tarot card that denotes diplomacy, possibilities of choice, creativity, skills to persuade, vitality and power over mental illness. On the other hand, while reversed it can represent indecisiveness, insecurity, lack of originality, sickness or exploitation of the innocent.

Personas of this arcana are generally consisted of wise beasts or governors of nature.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This Arcana can be found as number 1 in the Eitteilla Tarot Deck. It is referred to as Le Questionnant, which translates to "The Consultant." It corresponds to the Hierophant card in the "Tarot de Marseille" Deck.
  • The Councillor Arcana is an equivalent of the Magician Arcana, alluding to Takuto's seemingly magical powers to soothe severe mental illnesses. Much like Junpei, Yosuke and Morgana, Takuto also had a tragedy related to his romantic interest, Rumi.
  • Unlike the other tarot cards in the Persona series, the number used for the Councillor is represented by the Arabic numeral "1" rather than the Roman numeral "I.”
  • The card resembles the Thoth version of the Sun Arcana.
