Persona 2: Eternal Punishment is part two of a story begun in Persona 2: Innocent Sin. Thus, some characters are the same, while other characters are brand new. The cast includes:
Maya Amano is the protagonist of Eternal Punishment. She’s 23 years old and an editor at “Coolest” magazine, a popular teen publication from Kismet Publishing. She’s assigned to investigate the mysterious “Joker,” which leads her to Seven Sisters High School right as the Joker murders the principal. It is then that she meets Tatsuya Suou, whom Maya nicknames “Deja Vu Boy.” She doesn’t know why she feels like she’s met him before, or why he tells her to “forget everything…”
Katsuya Suou is Tatsuya’s older brother (age 25) and a sergeant with the Sumaru City police force. He is intelligent, capable of thinking on his feet, well-regarded by his peers, an impeccable dresser, and has a strong sense of justice. He first meets Maya at the scene of the Seven Sisters High principal’s murder.
Ulala Serizawa is Maya’s best friend since high school (age 24) and her roommate. She is hot-tempered, tidy, and stylish, and she also enjoys telling fortunes. She’s a makeup artist by trade, but she enjoys boxing, which is she wraps her hands. Ulala thinks she always has bad luck with men
Tatsuya Suou is the 18-year-old younger brother of Katsuya and the boy that Maya nicknamed “Deja Vu Boy.” He saved Maya from the Joker at Seven Sisters High School, but he won’t tell her why he’s so familiar to her… In reality, he was one of the protagonists of Persona 2: Innocent Sin, and he remembers the events of that game, causing a paradox in reality.

He’s also a rumormonger who uses wiretapping to find compromising information.
