"See for yourself the Creator's "almighty" handiwork. See how the earth's inhabitants lament their injustices and buckle under misfortune."
—Khonsu, Shin Megami Tensei V

Khonsu is a demon in the series.

History

Khonsu is an Ancient Egyptian god whose main role was associated with the moon. His name means "traveler" and this may relate to the nightly travel of the moon across the sky. Along with Thoth, he marked the passage of time. Khonsu was instrumental in the creation of new life in all living creatures. At Thebes, he formed part of a family triad with Mut as his mother and Amun his father. At Kom Ombo, he was worshiped as son of Sobek and Hathor.

Typically, he is depicted as a mummy with the symbol of childhood, a sidelock of hair, as well as the menat necklace with crook and flail. He has close links to other divine children such as Horus and Shu. He is sometimes shown wearing a falcon's head like Horus, with who he is associated as a protector and healer, adorned with the sun disk and crescent moon.

He is mentioned in the Pyramid Texts and Coffin Texts, in which he is depicted in a fierce aspect, but doesn't rise to prominence until the New Kingdom when he is described as the "Greatest God of the Great Gods." Most of the construction of the temple complex at Karnak was centered on Khonsu during the Ramesside Period. His temple at Karnak is in a relatively good state of preservation and on one of the walls is depicted a cosmogony in which Khonsu is described as the great snake who fertilizes the Cosmic Egg in the creation of the world.

Khonsu's reputation as a healer spread outside of Egypt with a stela recording how a princess of Bekhten was instantly cured of an illness when an image of Khonsu arrived. King Ptolemy IV called himself "Beloved of Khonsu Who Protects His Majesty and Drives Away Evil Spirits" after he was cured of an illness. Memphis, Hibis and Edfu were locations of Khonsu's cult.

Shin Megami Tensei V

"The Egyptian god of the moon.
Often portrayed as a mummy with two long braids of hair, he is said to be a reincarnation of the moon itself and holds possession over what's known as the moon ship. He also acts as a companion to the Pharaoh's shadow. Hieroglyphics found in Unas' pyramid depict him as a god who prepares meals for an oppressive, god-devouring king."
Shin Megami Tensei V lore
"The form of the Egyptian god of the Moon, Khonsu, upon gaining the power of the sun god, Ra.
Hidden behind a foreboding mask, he possesses the dual powers of the sun and moon, the day and night, and the living and the dead."
Shin Megami Tensei V lore (Khonsu Ra)

Khonsu is the representative of the Egyptian branch of Bethel, which strives to protect Tokyo from demons. He took this position from Cleopatra. Khonsu strives to create a world of gladness, where everyone is treated equally.

He is first seen attending a summit between the Bethel branches and witnesses Abdiel lose to the protagonist. After the battle, Khonsu breaks off from Bethel with the rest of the gods, initially seeking to become Nahobino. He soon discovers that the human bearing his Knowledge is Miyazu Atsuta, and that she is diagnosed with a terminal illness that would prevent her from living long. Khonsu is drawn to Miyazu's eagerness and decides to give up his claim to the throne to instead aid Miyazu, secretly giving her his Magatsuhi to sustain her life; however, he had given too much that fusing as Nahobino would cease her existence.

The protagonist, traveling around Da'at, finds a Dominion of Bethel who is disgrunted by the schism and wondering what has become of the Egyptian branch, tasks them with finding out what they're up to in the quest "The Egyptians' Fate". The protagonist finds the Egyptian deities at Odaiba, where Khonsu, mistaking them to be an assassin, attacks but is defeated. The protagonist then has the option of sparing or slaying him on the spot.

If the protagonist kills Khonsu, he becomes unlockable for fusion, but locks the "The Succession of Ra" subquest that follows. He apologizes to Miyazu in his dying breath and the demons outside mourn his death.

If the protagonist spares him, he tells the protagonist that he has lost interest in the throne, leaving to recover with the promise he won't try to claim it. Khonsu later confronts his father Amon after the protagonist defeats him, claiming the Winged Crest of Ra as part of his plan before leaving.

If the protagonist had additionally completed the quest "The Falcon's Head" and learned of Miyazu's involvement with him by talking with her in the Fairy Village, Isis reveals that Khonsu had taken Horus' head from her and explains the entire situation to them, finding Khonsu and Miyazu at the outskirts of the Fairy Village. Khonsu, drawing upon the power of Horus' head and the Crest of Ra, assumes his Ra form and fights them again, only to lose. He then tries to goad them into killing him so Miyazu could ascend to a god, but before anyone could act, Miyazu states that she is satisfied with her life and Isis reminds him of why he was drawn to her in the first place. Khonsu then realizes his mistake and is taken by Isis to Aaru to recover, but not before granting the protagonist the ability to fuse both his normal and ascended forms.

Trivia

  • According to an interview with Masayuki Doi on Shin Megami Tensei V, several cutscenes in the game made use of motion capture, and Khonsu would be a character that would be dynamically distinct thanks to the methodology and his actor.[1]
  • In the same interview with Doi, he specifies that Khonsu has an unique role in the story.[1]
