Arisato Minato has a reputation for being "cool and spicy"; however, his real personality is that of an extremely shy and easily intimidated boy. One night Minato makes a wish that he would have the courage to be reborn as his "would-be" self. The next morning Minato finds three brightly colored eggs—red, blue, and green—in his bed. Each egg eventually hatches into a Persona: Orpheus, Thanatos, and Messiah. Personas are tiny beings that aid a person into becoming their "would-be" selves and fulfill the person's dreams. The Personas accomplish this by giving encouragement and advice, but they can also temporarily change a person's personality and abilities. With the Personas, Minato's life becomes much more complex as he now struggles to deal with his new personalities and the Gekkoukan High SEES—a student council group where each member has their own Persona—who recruits Minato to search for and seal the shadows, which are the corrupted forms of people's dreams.
