Eros (エロース, Erosu) is a Persona in Persona 2: Innocent Sin.


Eros, the god of love and desire, is considered as a deity in the ancient Greece and the counterpart of the Roman god, Cupid. Various sources mention different tales about his true origin, varying from a primordial god to the son of Aphrodite and Ares. Nevertheless, all legends involving his existence picture him as an attendant to Aphrodite, where he causes the love between mortals. His figure is described to have an appearance of a winged young man or a baby who carries the bow and arrows of love. Even as a god, he lacks good archery skills and in some myths, he is blindfolded, resulting in mostly missing his targets. He caused the love between Apollo and Daphne, after Apollo made fun of him. He later fell in love with a mortal woman named Psyche, eventually becoming her husband and from their union, Hedone is born.
