Himiko is the Sonar based Persona of Rise Kujikawa.
Like the rest of Investigation Team, Himiko was a Shadow of Rise Kujikawa before she became her Persona. Much like the others, Rise's Shadow taunted at Rise with everything she didn't want to hear about, and of course Rise denies which made it more powerful and start rampaging. Due to her unique ability to scan her enemy, Rise's Shadow was proven to be formidable enemy, until Teddy sacrificed most of himself to help defeat Shadow. Rise finally accepts her and the Shadow become Himiko of The Lovers Arcana.

Illustrated by Shigenori Soejima, Rise's Shadow form represent how she is perceived by the media, a sex symbol. The satellite on her face symbolized that on media, she has no real face but only the face given by her fans and producers, and so is her rainbow-colored body. At the same time it also represent her wish to be loved by the others. Even though Rise quit her job as pop idol because of how people perceived as, she can't help but to feel lonely due to the fact that she could not make any real friend during her career as idol.
Her Persona form, which is also illustrated by Shigenori Soejima is based on legendary queen Himiko. However according to myth and history, Himiko was not ordinary queen, she was a shaman. The satellite dish on Persona Himiko's head is actually similar to a torch Himiko was wielding. Persona Himiko is not a battle-type but she can scan her enemies and Midnight Channel. Whatever information she perceives, she sends the information to the visor she is holding on hands, which can only be viewed by Rise since Himiko is Rise's own Persona.
