Persona 4 characters // Rise Kujikawa
Goodbye, My Hero.
3/21- The Departure
Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4
Its surprising how many people call Rise a skank/whore/slut just like her shadow does. I mean did you even pay attention to why her shadow was a stripper?! I can certainly tell you its not because Rise is promiscuous. Hell I could list reason why its a stripper in fact I will do so now.
- She wishes to “strip” away her false self and find her real self underneath.
- As an idol she is sexualized like crazy hence many people view her as a sexual object instead of a person. Shadow Rise being so sexual comes from that.
- Rise has a surprisingly low sense of self-worth so her shadow coming out as something people also see of low worth makes sense. Most people don’t really respect strippers…
- The reason why Rise does like attention is I’m guessing she did not get very much positive attention as a child with her being bullied and friendless. As an idol the attention has become something that is harming her over time. Her shadow craves any attention no matter what, even if she has to force people. A way to get attention as a famous young pretty girl is….well removing your clothes. Rise does not want this at all and at this point would rather stay away from the spotlight. Shadows basically take their owners emotions and RUN with them and exaggerate.
Ok I’m gonna stop myself before I’m typing this all day. But yeah anyone who calls Rise those names is WRONG. Even if its an opinion its wrong and they have missed the whole character and the whole point of shadows.
