"A 17th century privateer who eventually became a world-renowned pirate. At his execution, he declared he had a hidden treasure, leaving behind many legends."
Persona 5 compendium
William Kidd was a Scottish pirate and privateer in the 17th century. His early career was spent in the Carribean, where he aided the besieged English colony of Nevis by ransacking the attacking French. In recognition of his actions, the King of England awarded him a letter of marque, granting him legal protection so long as he remained loyal. However, during a voyage to the Indian Ocean, his crew plundered a neutral ship without his knowledge, branding him an outlaw once more. Eventually, he was captured and sent to London, where he was tried and executed.

As time went on, William Kidd's reputation as a pirate became the stuff of legends and folklore, with many tall tales being told about his adventures, most famously involving him burying plundered treasure to protect it from his greedy associates.



William is the third-tier Persona of Ryuji Sakamoto. William specializes in Physical and Electricity Attacks, allowing him to follow up strikes at an enemy's weakness with punishing Physical attacks, especially if Charge is used prior.
