The Iron Maiden is a tool used by Lavenza to fuse new Personas in the Velvet Room. It will explode during a fusion accident, causing a steel nut to fall on Lavenza's head as she stares confusedly, unfazed by the object.
"A zombie manipulated by Hakke Daru. It's called "Osiris' Virgin" because of its Egyptian style ornaments. Daru can manipulate people infected with the petrifying illness. He kidnaps women, gets them infected, and enjoys torturing and killing them. He likes to manipulate them like puppets. The Iron Maiden is his favorite method of tortute. With a casket-shaped box, she approaches the enemy for an attack. As the casket opens, long and sharp blades hurl out to attack the enemy. To defend herself, she hides in the box and closes the lid."
Iron Maidens are only found in Southeastern Europe. They remain idle inside their coffins until the Maken approaches them or has their back turned to them, after which their coffins spring open, revealing their bodies mounted on large spikes, and they'll charge forward in a straight line. They can only be damaged if the Maken attacks their exposed bodies. If they are hit but not killed, which is only possible if the Maken is controlling a character with a low strength ranking such as Gou Inaba due to the Iron Maiden's low health, the Iron Maiden will counter attack with a poison breath attack. Their counter attack was removed in Maken Shao.
