- Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers: Major Character
Jun Owada isn't any different from Masayoshi Shido in terms of personality, being incredibly ignorant and malicious, even attempting to kill children and request change of hearts from Akira Konoe so he can become Shido's successor. What sets him apart and prevents him from being actually threatening is that he doesn't have any power or backing while Konoe clearly has, allowing Konoe to take advantage of his ignorance to advance his goal. He also has less control over the police unlike Shido, allowing Kaburagi and Zenkichi to turn on him as soon as they see fit.
Owada is a corrupt politician who lobbied with Masayoshi Shido before and is attempting to compete for prime minister. In order to fulfill his goals, he cooperated with Akira Konoe to remove his political opponents, with the former mayor of Sapporo being one of them. Two years ago, he also killed Zenkichi Hasegawa's wife and Akane Hasegawa mother with Shido's backing preventing Zenkichi from actually investigating. As Zenkichi didn't hold Akane at a high regard and the police is barred from investigation, she came to resent all law enforcement in general.
During the story, he orders Kaburagi to capture the Phantom Thieves of Hearts per Konoe's orders because Konoe considers them terrorists for hacking into EMMA and claimed that they killed the King of Okinawa. In reality, both claims are fabrications and are simply used to justify his crusade, and Konoe is only using him and he will be the only one who enforces justice via EMMA. Kaburagi, while having second thoughts, is determined to enforce justice, in addition to Owada bribing her a seat as secretary general. This was foiled when Zenkichi Hasegawa used himself as a decoy and Sae Niijima freed him quickly. As an extra ploy, Konoe used the newly formed Kyoto's Jail to capture the Thieves and putting Akane in the crossfire.
At the end of the game, Kaburagi and Zenkichi arrest him and his plan of being Shido's successor falls null and void.
Jun (純) means "pure" in Japanese and Owada (大和田) could mean "big rice field of peace".
