Izanagi is the initial Persona for the Protagonist. Later, during the true ending of the game, Izanagi changes into a white form with an energy dual-edged sword with rings surrounding the handle (named Izanagi no Ookami).
Izangi (イザナギ) is a Japanese creation deity born of the seven divine generations in Japanese mythology. He is also known as Izanagi-no-mikoto, the "male who invites". He and Izanami created many of the islands and deities of Japan. When Izanami died, Izanagi tried to retrieve her from the underworld, but failed. He mistakenly looks at her while she in a rotting, monstrous state in the underworld, which shames her. She attempts to kill him, and swears to kill a thousand of his men a day. Izanagi claims that he will make sure that a thousand and five hundred will be born each day.
