- Persona 5 Royal: Playable Character
Kasumi has red long hair tied into a ponytail, with a red ribbon tied into a bow, and red eyes. She wears a Shujin Academy winter uniform with black pantyhose and red loafers. Her summer casual outfit consists of a celeste blouse with black polka dots, a white skirt and white sandals.
As a Phantom Thief, Kasumi wears a black mask with silver highlights and has a black ribbon tied to her ponytail. Her main outfit consists of a strapless black leotard, a chain belt with two silver roses motifs and the scabbard for her rapier attached to it, a black choker and red gloves. Her black bolero jacket has gold buttons, ruffled sleeves and three floor-length coattails. She wears thigh-length hose and stiletto-heels that resemble ballet shoes on the top.
Kasumi is a cheerful, elegant and friendly person with a perfect life, as she received a Shujin scholarship. While she expresses admiration towards the protagonist and his friends, she greatly rejects Phantom Thieves and their existence, as she believes that people should learn how to solve their own problems instead of relying on other people. This stems from her own personal issues, having been helped throughout her life.
Kasumi is an accomplished rhythmic gymnast who transfers to Shujin Academy at the same time as the protagonist. Due to her accomplishments, the school has high hopes for her. At some point, Kasumi becomes involved with the Phantom Thieves, despite having different views from them. She joins them for her own reasons, rather than for the idea of changing the hearts of corrupt adults.
