Goro Akechi is one of the main protagonists and party members in the video game Persona 5. He is a third-year student who attends an unknown high school. He is also a celebrity detective who is investigating the Phantom Thieves of Hearts, eventually teaming up with them. However, he is actually a mole working for Masayoshi Shido, whom he plots to exact revenge on for ruining his life. His initial Persona is Robin Hood before it was revealed that he had a second Persona, Loki.
He is voiced by Soichiro Hoishi in the Japanese version and Robbie Daymond in the English version.
Akechi is a high school student who conducts a detective business. His abilities as a detective have been widely acclaimed, since he not only has solved numerous cases, but is also able to deal with people from the investigation agency smoothly. His handsome features draw him public attention, and people comment on him as “The Second Advent of the Detective Prince.”
Behind his popularity, he is quite lonely and yearns to be loved. He was abandoned by his father, subsequently lost his mother to suicide, and never had close friends. He was passed around the foster care system as an orphan and has developed a far more jaded worldview than he initially lets on, even calling himself an unwanted child. He has a desperate desire to be acknowledged, which he is forthright about being the primary drive for his actions as a detective. He also has a narcissistic element to his personality, wishing for others to see him as a hero and those who oppose him as the villains.
