"Do you finally see the truth? Do you know the true face of the guilty? They condemn the good to slavery. Pretend they do not see their agony. ...Just as you once did. But another story must begin. Now, show your gaolers that you will wear a different chain. I am thou, thou art I... If you yet seek true justice, we will see it done!"
—Valjean, Persona 5 Strikers

Valjean is a Persona in Persona 5 Strikers.

History[]

Jean Valjean is the main protagonist of Victor Hugo’s 1862 novel Les Misérables. Valjean's story depicts his struggles to live a good life in God's name following a prison sentence for stealing bread for his destitute family. His efforts lead to him taking several aliases, and focuses on his care for the dying Fantine and then her daughter Cosette.

Both in the original novel and its adaptations, Valjean is shown in a mostly-positive light, often displaying compassion and selflessness while being capable of cunning and jealousy. His humanity puts him in stark contrast with Inspector Javert, who represents the law but acts as one of the story's main antagonists.
