Kanji Tatsumi is a Persona user in Inaba that joins the Investigation Team.


Kanji Tatsumi was born in Inaba, Japan in 1996. He is the son of the local textile worker as his mother runs the family business, mostly doing work for Yukiko Amagi's family. His father died when he was a young age and had mixed ideas of what it was to be a man. Kanji grew up without a strong role model in life and took interest in his mother's work.
