The Fox

The Fox (キツネ, Kitsune) is a non-player character in Persona 4. It plays a significant role in the main character and the Investigation Team's exploration of the Midnight Channel.


The Fox is found at the Tatsuhime Shrine in the Central Shopping District beginning on May 5th. Apparently, the Fox had made the Shrine its home, and is concerned on the dilapidated state of the area. It believes that if people's wishes written on the ema are granted, more visitors will come to the shrine and pray, and the shrine will be more prosperous.

The Fox then implored the protagonist to fulfill the wishes written on the ema. When the protagonist agrees to do so, the Hermit Arcana Social Link will be unlocked. The Social Link rank increases whenever a wish is successfully fulfilled. Taking up a wish does not consume the whole day, but reporting a successful wish-granting session to the fox will.

The fox had also apparently taken a liking to the protagonist. It follows him whenever the Investigation Team entered the Midnight Channel, and can also be found in random areas within the dungeons, ready to heal the party's SP with a leaf collected from the shrine. However, this healing service is very expensive.

At the end, the protagonist manages to fulfill all the wishes of the ema, and the shrine's offertory box is filled with money from people who are in gratitude. One day, the money from the offertory box disappeared, alarming the protagonist and the fox. However, it was revealed that the money had been used to improve the conditions of the shrine, with most structures covered with a golden sheen. In the epilogue, the fox had apparently gave birth to three fox cubs.
