Tam Lin is a demon in the series.

History[edit | edit source]

Tam Lin is a famous fairy who was said to haunt Caterhaugh Wood in England. He supposedly lured young women away to ruin them. He was once a human who had been trapped by the Fairy Queen. A young woman named Janet is said to have fallen in love with him at one point, and finally managed to free him.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Profile[edit | edit source]

Shin Megami Tensei[edit | edit source]

"Origin: Ireland. He guards the forest of Carterhaugh. Originally, he was a human kidnapped by the fairy queen. He was wounded while hunting in the forest, allowing the fairy queen to capture him. From there, he was meant to become a sacrifice seven years later. But through Janet's efforts and Tam Lin's strong will, he safely returned to his world."
Shin Megami Tensei A-Mode DDS Dictionary

Tam Lin is encountered early on in the final dungeon, where his respective palette swap (with a complimentary skillset), Cu Chulainn, is also frequently encountered.

Shin Megami Tensei IMAGINE[edit | edit source]

Tam Lin was released during the 2014 White Day event as a summon PG and later as a regular double fusion.

Shin Megami Tensei IV[edit | edit source]

Tam Lin can be summoned through a special fusion of Pixie, Spriggan and Centaur. He can teach Flynn the Hama, Gram Slice and Maragi skills through his Demon Whisper. Tam Lin is needed in order to fuse Frost Ace through special fusion.

Tam Lin appears in the Fairy Forest, in the southern sections of the forest except for the initial entrance area. He can pass the Hama, Gram Slice, Estoma, and Heat Wave skills on to Nanashi through his Demon Whisper. Tam Lin receives bonuses to Physical, Gun, and Light skills passed on through fusion.

Devil Summoner 2: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. King Abaddon[edit | edit source]

Persona 4[edit | edit source]

Tam Lin is a Persona of the Sun Arcana in Persona 4 and remains the only palette-swapped Persona remaining in the game. His fusion prerequisite requires the protagonist to perform a cross-spread fusion using, Gdon, Phoenix, Narasimha and Yatagarasu in the Velvet Room.

The Animation[edit | edit source]

In Persona 4 The Animation, Tam Lin represents the bond between Yu and Ayane Matsunaga. He was summoned during the battle against Kunino-sagiri in Heaven to rescue Nanako, although Yu was under the possession of Kunino-sagiri. He unleashed a powerful Ziodyne attack that dealt serious damage to Jiraiya and Yosuke.

Persona 5 Royal[edit | edit source]

"A fae knight of the Seelie Court, said to protect the forest of Carterhaugh. After being kidnapped by the faeries at the tender age of 9, he lived much of his life among them."
Persona 5 Royal background

Shadow Arihara takes the form of Tam Lin during his boss fight. He can use "Womanizing" to brainwash Ann Takamaki, Makoto Niijima, Haru Okumura and Yoshizawa. He also resists Ann, Makoto and Haru's main elements, so it is strongly advised to not bring them.
