Persona 5 fans will likely recognize Seth as one of the first group fusions they’ll be able to perform, and one that can potentially remain quite powerful throughout the rest of the game. As is the case with most personas in these games, Seth is based on some sort of actual myth in the real world. In his case, Seth was the Egyptian deity of deserts, storms, violence, war and chaos.

Sometimes it’s evil. Sometimes it’s just dangerous. It usually depends on the story and who’s telling it. I’m not sure how powerful it was compared to the other members of the Egyptian pantheon, but I’m guessing pretty powerful considering the fear apparent in the old stories. At any rate, it’s cool to see this particular persona back again, isn’t it?

What do you think of this persona? Think you’ll be trying out Shin Megami Tensei V?
