Five years.

Five years after the Tower; the portals were still open, the smaller tower still there, but there had been time to heal. Time for the worst of the nightmares to fade, time for things to return to something like normal.

Time enough to finish high school, finish college, and make it to today. The preparations had taken weeks; there were photographs to take, invitations to drop off across multiple worlds, and a thousand other little things to do.

That all led up to now - five years, and now it was the biggest day of Yukiko and Ryoji's lives. The day of their wedding, the first day of the rest of their lives.

Yukiko smiles into a hand mirror, making a few last adjustments to her white kimono.

Then it was time; the car pulled up to Tatsuhime Shrine, and she carefully stepped out, then walked up the stairs.

I need some assistance with acquiring a set of fighting fans - they'll only be used for defense and monster-fighting when the administration feels the need to take away our powers. I'd like a set of metal ones with either sharpened edges or hidden blades.

I've been told by Diarmuid Ua Duibhne that I should speak to a Thorin Oakenshield about this? I'm not sure where I'd get the metal, but I trust both of you on this one.

There's...something else.

[And she takes a deep breath.]

People with violet collars are quite possibly in for some trouble, because unless something happened after I -

[The long pause is probably telling. Yes, she died.]

- I failed to stop him from taking it, there's a tank of your collar fluid in Sephiroth's hands. You folks who were in the collar check room at 11:00 last night know what I mean by 'failed', and it's probably pretty obvious to the rest of you...

Considering he's not above either mind control or killing other people, I don't really think I have to say a lot more.

[sent to the Persona-users at the barricade, SEES, the Investigation Team, Strega, Hidetoshi Odagiri, Ryoji Mochizuki, Saki Konishi, and Labrys.]

My name is Yukiko Amagi. Some of you know me, and some of you don't. I'm sending this message to all of you because something I saw at the barricade, something I saw recently that was...kind of painful, and especially something that happened at home are coming together in my mind. It affects all of us, because we either have the same power, have seen its reverse, or have been affected by it at some point: Personas and Shadows. They're called different things and have different effects - Ryoji told me that in his timeline, Shadows' influence made people really sick, and in mine, they could easily kill people, but...not always.

We worked together for a moment at the barricade, and we made a difference. I think if I explain this and we work together, we can make a real difference here in the Tower, too.

I don't want to do it over the network or over mail, though. When is a good time and a good place to do this in-person? My mailbox is #0903. If you know someone who should get this and doesn't have a mailbox - Yu-kun, please tell Yosuke-kun to get one - then please pass this along to them. Likewise, trusted allies who know about the situation at home. So long as it's kept as small as possible.

Thank you very much for your time.

Or, in other words, let's talk Persona skills.

Yukiko is a Purse Owner Persona-User, and she's taken after the end of her story mode in Persona 4 Arena. In that timeline, her Persona is Konohana-Sakuya, of the Priestess Arcana. Its skillset is different here than in the main Persona 4 timeline:

Dia - Light HP recovery. 1 ally.
Agi - Light Fire damage. 1 foe.
Maragi - Light Fire damage. All foes.
Fire Boost - Increases Fire damage output by 25%.
Fire Break - Nullifies Fire resistance for 3 turns. 1 foe.
Fire Amp - Increases Fire damage output by 50%.
Agidyne - Large Fire damage. 1 foe.
Maragidyne - Large Fire damage. All foes.
Full Bloom - Yukiko poses as Konohana-Sakuya barges in and knocks the opponent into the wall. The aura explodes in their face and sends waves of petals at the them and kills them.

Since P4A is set after the True End of Persona 4, I've made two mod-okayed skill substitutions so that Yukiko's Persona is a little more shifted towards healing, as it is in P4.

Fire Amp is now gone, replaced with Diarahan, (Full HP recovery. 1 ally.).
Full Bloom is also now gone, replaced with Mediarahan (Full HP recovery, all allies).

- a set of pajamas, along with underwear
- the mask seen in this icon and the glasses seen in this icon
- the (empty) lunch box she's holding in this image
- one set of palette-swapped clothes - specifically, the top-right one. (Yes, it's suppposed to look like Homura from Madoka Magica!)
