  • According to the first volume's omake, Shinshū Ueda thought the protagonist looked like Tomoya Nagase, TOKIO's vocalist. She used him as basis for the protagonist and eventually became a fan, going as far as naming the protagonist after Tomoya in her own Snow Queen Quest playthrough. His in-game nickname is Tomozō (ともぞう).
  • The second volume contains an omake detailing Ueda's thoughts on the American version of the game, Revelations: Persona. Her version of the protagonist is named Edward Tanaka (エドワード・田中, Edowādo Tanaka)?, of American descent but born and raised in Japan until the end of Middle School and still has some problems with English, mirroring Ueda's own difficulties in playing the game.
