This article is about the Arcana. For the Shadow, see Arcana Priestess.
Priestess-0

The Priestess Arcana (女教皇, Jokyoukou)?, also known as the High Priestess, is a recurring Arcana in the Persona series.

Overview

"The Arcana is the means by which all is revealed...
The silent voice within one's heart whispers the most profound wisdom."
—Nyx Avatar, Persona 3

Originally named the Popess, portrayed as an old woman with an open book, the Priestess Arcana is a symbol of hidden knowledge or other untapped power, wisdom, female mystery and patience when it appears in tarot readings.

Gameplay-wise, the Personas of the Priestess Arcana are commonly associated with healing and support attributes. Mythological figures of the Priestess Arcana are usually crone archetypes, goddesses of wisdom, witches, female mages or priestess figures themselves.

Individuals associated with the Priestess Arcana are usually quiet, reserved, hardworking and very intelligent. They are often modest and shy, and won't open up to the protagonist until much later in their Social Links as compared with other characters. A recurring theme with Priestess characters is that they have an inferiority complex due to growing under highly exigent family members, as in the cases of Fuuka Yamagishi, Yukiko Amagi and Makoto Niijima.

The Priestess Arcana Social Link is represented by Fuuka Yamagishi, a student of Gekkoukan High School and a member of SEES. The protagonist can initiate the Social Link flag after joining one of the Culture Clubs. Furthermore, the protagonist must also max out his Courage characteristics parameter before initiating the Social Link.

The Priestess Arcana Social Link powers up everytime the protagonist interacts with Fuuka, where he helps taste Fuuka's horrible cooking, as well as helping her understand her insecurities of being a burden to others and her confusion about her lack of interest in more "feminine" hobbies. Upon completing the Social Link, Fuuka will give the protagonist her custom-made earphones, bestowing the ultimate form of the Priestess Arcana, Scathach, "The Teacher."

The Priestess Arcana is also the Persona Arcana of Fuuka Yamagishi.

Persona 4

"I want to protect the family inn. After all, it's near to my heart..."
—Yukiko Amagi

The Priestess Arcana Social Link is represented by Yukiko Amagi, a classmate of the protagonist in Persona 4. The Social Link is automatically created in the storyline when the Investigation Team plans a stake-out on Kanji Tatsumi.

In the events of the Social Link, Yukiko proclaims her desire of leaving Yasoinaba to the protagonist, but to do so, must learn how to live on her own by the time she graduates, which includes finding a career she can pursue and learning how to cook. Unfortunately, she is a terrible cook, and many of the meals she has the protagonist taste-test are practically inedible. Several of the protagonist's responses regarding Yukiko's cooking are also based on the protagonist's Courage status parameter; the higher his Courage'is, the better answers the protagonist can access.

Leveling the Priestess Arcana up to Lv. 3 allows Yukiko to learn her distinct follow-up move, Fan Assault, where Yukiko delivers a powerful assault on an active enemy, with 100% critical rate and Dizzy status. However, the protagonist must first knock down a target.

Later, as the protagonist interacts with Yukiko, Yukiko realizes that she actually cared for her family inn the most, and merely felt chained down by the belief that she had no choice. By the end of the Social Link, Yukiko decides not to leave Yasoinaba, but to inherit the Inn and continue her family's legacy. Having a change in her psyche and finally finding her resolution, Yukiko's Persona, Konohana Sakuya, transfigures into Amaterasu.

Completing the Priestess Arcana Social Link also bestows the protagonist with the ultimate form of the Priestess Arcana, Scathach.
