Tae Takemi is a supporting protagonist in the video game Persona 5. She is a back alley doctor who owns a clinic in Yongen-Jaya, not far from Cafe LeBlanc, which she attends on occasion. Due to an incident in her past, she has a bad reputation as "the Plague", and so only ever gets patients with ulterior motives. Her clinic serves as the player's medicine booth throughout the game, and she also serves as the Confidant for the Death Arcana.
She is voiced by Yuka Saito in the Japanese version and Kristen Potter in the English version.
Takemi has dark blue hair in a messy bob-cut with blunt bangs and brown eyes. She has red nail polish on her fingernails and toenails. She is fairly short, standing only slightly taller than Futaba without her heels.
Her outfit consists of a typical white lab-coat that is worn over a short black dress. She accessorises with a red grommet belt, a black studded necklace choker which connects to multiple necklaces, and strappy black platform high heels.
In her casual outfit, she still wears her choker and necklace. She wears a bracelet, short black jacket, a blue dress with a white spiderweb design, and black ripped leggings. She is noted by Morgana to have an "interesting fashion sense."
Takemi is a somewhat eccentric young woman. She dresses like a punk and has a morbid sense of humor, reacting with glee when she gets the protagonist to try out a new medicine, watching him squirm. Due to her bad reputation, she can easily tell when one of her patients has an ulterior motive, as those kind of patients are all she gets. Her reputation as "the Plague" has made her highly cynical and insecure, claiming that she's only good for making experimental drugs, even after being praised for curing a young girl.
Despite her dark sense of humor, Takemi is nevertheless a very kind and caring person, as one would expect from a doctor; although she gets annoyed at the protagonist for his attempted deception, she decides to make a deal with him afterwards, saying she'll give him medicines to recover his health. After he agrees to become her assistant, she frequently checks on him to out of concern for his health. However, she never calls him by his name, instead referring to him as "[her] little guinea pig," a name she continues to use even after they start dating (if the protagonist chooses to date her).
Takemi is also very knowledgeable about traditional Shinto prayer rituals, which is shown when the protagonist takes Ann Takamaki to Meiji Shrine, which results in a scene where the two meet each other.
