Joker (ジョーカー, Joker) is the codename used by the protagonist of Persona 5. Although Joker's civilian name is given by the player in Persona 5 itself, in various related media he has received the canonical name Ren Amamiya (雨宮 蓮, Ren Amamiya).
Ren Amamiya is the leader of the vigilante group known as the Phantom Thieves. After being falsely accused of assault, he was labeled a delinquent and moved to Tokyo, Japan to attend Shujin Academy as part of his probation. While there, he discovers a strange application on his smartphone which, after a chance encounter with the blonde-haired Ryuji Sakamoto over their gym coach Kamoshida, they discover is actually a conduit to an alternate reality. This “cognition” is the manifestation of an individual’s twisted desires into a dream-like fantasy. In this case, Coach Kamoshida sees himself as the king of the academy and treats the rest of the students and faculty like peasants. Wanting no part in this reality, Ren resists the oppression of King Kamoshida and awakens his Persona, donning the mask and cloak of “Joker.”
Joker is a user of a rare Persona ability known as the Wild Card, which allows him to hold multiple Personas at once. His initial Persona is Arsene, based on the literary gentleman thief Arsène Lupin.
