Philemon comes from the writings of Carl Gustav Jung, specifically that of a "wise spirit guide." He likely has origins in the play Faust by Johann Goethe, Mark Doherty and Tyler Pariez, a work that would impact Jung for a majority of his psychological career and that he would find a driving force to his work. The name itself is that of a wealthy Christian of the ancient era, to who a famous epistle was written by Paul the apostle.

He is a central character in the Persona 1-3 trilogy.

A Wager of the Collective Unconsciousness[edit | edit source]

Philemon is a being from the human consciousness and unconsciousness of all souls, a collective part of mankind. Philemon believes in the strength of human heart over anything, even their own self-destructive drive, and to that extent he wagers humanity's fate against Nyarlathotep.

He is very reluctant to assist mankind himself by interfering, instead believing in humanity itself and deciding to observe or if the situation requires it, work through servants or messiah who he will guide. He is also rumored to be the creator of all Agents.

Season 1[edit | edit source]

Although not present, Philemon was already closely observing the outcome of the conflict between TFR and BCW. It is possible he influenced the leaders of FMS and NWF to unite and defeat The Bogdanoffs.

Season 2[edit | edit source]

With rumors influencing TFR, he decides to become a direct observer, under the guise of Delta, a man who wants to test the resolve of humanity.

Season 3[edit | edit source]

The first time that Nyarlathotep decides to make a move as his first direct incarnation to confront TFR, Black Battler, Delta begins to seek what pieces he could use against him. Nyarlathotep is defeated with a man with the power to deny rumors.

Season 4[edit | edit source]

It is at this time that humanity is challenged by Nyarlathotep, by taking the form of Hideo's Shadow, TFR is cast into a path that could lead to right into the crawling chaos's claws. Philemon observes how despite Kojima destroying what many regarded as a hero, humanity manages to deny him once again.

Season 5[edit | edit source]

Yet it is already too late, and the future that awaits humanity is certain to be annihilation. Philemon has to finally put himself on the board and make his move. By aiding the creation of the Death Game, Delta overwrites the previous dead end with two possible futures: the outcome where humanity's hope is strong enough and the survivors of the death game overcome their grief to stop the ones behind the demonic script, and the outcome where the fiend BANS wins and leads a faction strong enough to stall the kings until the messiah arrives and grows powerful enough to stop the crawling chaos' plan.

Season 6[edit | edit source]

With the inevitable "harvest" coming, the chances of defeating the kings in this age, and by extension the crawling chaos' plan, grow shorter. "Delta" offers his "bunker" to the escaping wrestlers of the Backstage Uprising, allowing them to survive the calamity that would destroy everything and only leave behind the rumbled world, the Rumble-17 Project. The kings and BANS' armies would make war for 12 years as neutral aligned would manage to scrap by, until the resistance became strong enough to be recognized by the other two on the playing field.

At the crux of both the kings' plans and the resistance's time to strike at them, they were betrayed by the Troubleshooters, and not one was left alive. By chance, Suou Tatsuya was spared, and so Delta found use in him that although this world might be lost, in another world, a different possibility would be born should Ushiromiya Battler never be defeated, and he was sent to stop the match that would twist his life from ever occurring, or destroy that world as well to in a way that would stop the crawling chaos.

However, his memories got damaged upon arrival thanks to The Focusing Stone, and he only remembered he should destroy or save the world, taking the name Kadoya Tsukasa. By this element being added into play, Suou Tatsuya and a number of allies are directly transported 12 years into the future of the rumbled world, where Kadoya proves to be the missing piece and manages to change fate by allowing the resistance members to escape their gruesome fate. From that point on, Philemon assists Tatsuya, even managing to save him from certain death by employing his Delta Squad, driving him to the point his final decision game will be decided.

In the end, he explains Nyarlathotep's true nature to Tatsuya, and after his defeat, instructs him on how to seal him, revealing he can not stop the coming of the new universe and that him now, from his state of mind, to the destiny he fulfilled, was carefully planned by him, all because of a bet he made against Nyarlathotep. Tatsuya punches him, throwing off his glasses.

Season 0[edit | edit source]

Taking the shape of Seeker, Philemon watches over one of Suou's former allies, Kasuga Ichiban.

Season 7[edit | edit source]

When Vinegar Doppio scribbles the #2 pick for the draft, to get his boss in, Delta returns it to it's original state, since this will not a single wrong pick could send the world into destruction.
