    SKILLS & ABILITIES

    Minato is the leader of an elite Shadow-hunting group known as S.E.E.S. As its leader he has made use of powerful leadership skills and the ability to work together with and guide his unorthodox team into a formidable fighting force. Covering for their weaknesses, and playing to their strengths became second nature to him.
    In addition to that, their battleground -- known as Tartarus -- was incredibly draining on the human body. Minato possesses an incredible amount of stamina to be able to enter and operate in Tartarus as much as he did, given that much of their actions involved physical activity and Persona usage.
    Within Tartarus, Minato's preferred weapon is a one-handed sword and he is well-trained in swordplay as well. However, his Magnum Opus, and most powerful abilities stem from his Wildcard Abilities and Messiah.

    Wildcard and PersonaMinato Arisato possesses a Persona, the spirit of the heart essentially made manifest into a battle avatar. This in and of itself is impressive, but Minato also possesses the Fool Arcana, a revolutionary power of Persona that allows him to possess up to 12 of these Avatars and switch between them effortlessly and at will. However, Pandora has returned him to only one, currently; Messiah. Minato summons these avatars by using an Evoker. It is an item similar in visual to a gun, but when fired it makes a sound of shattering glass, and the energy release summons his Persona.

    MessiahMessiah is the final manifested power of Minato's soul: His true Ultimate Persona, borne of fusing his original Persona, Orpheus, with Thanatos. Messiah is a powerhouse of a Persona and gives Minato access to several powerful abilities.

    Megidolaon - A powerful energy attack with a blast radius of about twenty five feet in diameter with enough force to break stone. Designed to catch multiple enemies and drains much of Minato's energy.
    Salvation - Capable of healing major wounds for up to four other people, in addition to curing illness or waking one up. This also drains a fair amount of Minato's energy
    Agidyne - A powerful pillar of burning fire about ten feet in diameter. Designed to catch one enemy, and drains a fair amount of energy
    God's Hand - A fist of gold materializes in the air and rockets into a foe, dealing a colossal amount of damage on impact. Drains Minato's life force by a considerable -- and deadly, if overused -- amount.
    Hientou - Messiah's sword-like appendages set on fire and assault one foe for a powerful slash-burning attack. This drains a large amount of his life force.
    Absorb Pierce - Arrows, needles, darts, spears, bullets, anything that can be noted as a weapon that pierces something does no damage to Minato.
    Regnerate 3 - Messiah's resurrecting nature is passed to its user, Minato will magically regain lost life force over time.
    Enduring Soul - Should Minato be hit with something that would usually kill him, the undying power of his Persona will intervene and he will hang on by a thread.

    EquipmentMinato will enter Pandora with what he holds as he dies, His Evoker, his trusty sword, and his music player with its headphones.

    WEAKNESSES

    Persona is exhausting to use, quite frankly, and drains both Minato's energy and his very life-force. Prolonged usage of Persona is capable of killing him, or wiping him out to the point of needing several days to recuperate. In addition to that, Messiah will not be capable of activating outside a cognition-friendly universe -- such as the Dark Hour, TV World, or Metaverse -- without some sort of godly intervention.
    As Messiah cannot be active in Pandora's overworld currently, any resistances to damage or death are not applicable (I.E. Absorb Pierce and Enduring Soul), so he is essentially a regular human with some kickass sword skills and endurance. He requires his Evoker to summon as well, so if that is removed, he will be unable to use Messiah.
    Besides that, he is not invulnerable, and is fully capable of being stabbed, drowned, anything a normal human could die by.


    FREEFORM

    Death trailed him like a shadow.
    Death stole his parents from him all those years ago, when the blonde girl touched him and he felt the weight of the universe settle on his shoulders. The shade of death trailed him as he bounced from home to home, as he grew and changed from a child into an adult. Perhaps because it was so close -- always on his heels -- was why he lost any fear of it. Death became simply an acceptance. A fact of life. He was no longer afraid of its power. Because of it, maybe, there was a sort of... apathy to him at first glance. He talked little to those he didn't know, usually with his headphones up to block out the noise. An air of indifference.

    Memento Mori. He held it close. Remember you will die.

    Tastumi Island, Gekkoukan High School... That was where Death began to run after him with a little more... Intent.
    The Dark Hour, he experienced without knowing its name, he simply wandered absently into the building he would be living in. That seemed to startle its inhabitants, and moreso when he put one of their guns to his head and simply fired with no regard to his safety.
    He was not afraid of Death, and Death rewarded him with Orpheus. A Persona. The manifestation of his soul.
    They told him of the Dark Hour, of Tartarus, once he had recovered from summoning. They told him the gun was an Evoker. It was used to call a Persona. They explained everything. Their names simply rooted themselves in his head. Their mentor, Shuji Ikutsuki, Yukari Takeba, Mitsuru Kirijo, Akihiko Sanada, and Junpei Iori after him. He became a member of S.E.E.S, their fighting force for the creatures called Shadows. His power made him a shoo-in to guide. His begrudging willingness that became immense fondnes. of them and to bond with them made him their leader.

    Death pulled him into a waltz.
    He danced with it, battling Shadows, gaining more and more allies. Fuuka Yamagishi, Aigis, Ken Amada, Shinjiro Aragaki's return, and Koromaru. He depended on them, loved them in a way, wanted them safe and sound, and wanted the Dark Hour dead. They suffered, he suffered with them, unwilling to watch them shoulder anything alone. Death caught up with parts of them, ate softly at their souls. Shinjiro died too soon, at a hand guided by death.
    Then Ikutsuki. Strega. Ryoji -- Pharos. Nyx. It all moved too fast, too quickly. In days Mitsuru's father was dead, their once trusted mentor a crazed and similarly dead lunatic. The Dark Hour's formation and purpose became clear: A herald of the Fall. The death of all humanity. The boy who came from Minato, sealed within all those years ago, the Avatar of Death itself. One month to decide whether they would let the world end in a flash, blissfully unaware, or whether they would rise against Death and save the world. Others might choose to pass their last days in ignorance and let humanity die, but there was a world to save... To protect. Humanity would never want to die like that, ended in a murdering flash by the Dark Hour. The choice was practically made for him when Ryoji offered it. Minato chose to fight Death.

    Minato Arisato faced Death on the 31st of January, on the death of the first month of 2010.
    The shade trailing him since it stole his parents resurrected every Monster Shadow they'd fought, Death pounded those who feared it into the ground. S.E.E.S fell around him, but he remained standing in simple defiance, the boy unafraid of Death and there to defend his friends and humanity with all he had. He ascended to the moon, became the savior, the messiah, and with the prayers of his friends and the weight of his Ultimate Persona, he sealed Death away from the Fall. The sacrifice, of course, being his own soul in return. Another month he strayed from Death's grasp on sheer will, the only one to remember the Dark Hour, said his goodbyes in the gentlest ways so they wouldn't suffer and worry, and Aigis joined him on the roof of the school on his last day. She promised to always protect him, but he knew, could feel the grasp of Death. He let what he hoped was a comforting smile grace his face, to be strong for her. It had come for it's prize, finally...

    Or would have, if suddenly his vision was not light, and when it cleared the world was not strange, and he was not gasping for air as if he had been drowning for days, crumpled on the cobblestones with people welcoming him to "Pandora."

    Death used to trail him like a shadow... But perhaps, no more.
