So... you think Shido is a ginger? That would explain some things I suppose.

Futaba's natural hair color is not orange. It's black. She dyes it.

Wait...... WHAT!?


Awkward-Program-9414

originally she was designed with black hair but then they made it so that she dyed her hair so she would stand out more. i think it was stated in the artbook, another interesting thing is that both akechi and futaba have specifically ab negative blood type, which is incredibly rare- less than 1% of the population of japan have it.


Imaginary-End-08

Now that I did some research on lol. I'm certain they're siblings.

If that was true then that's even more messed up in that Shido is Futaba's father, Shido had arranged the murder of a woman he impregnated by arranging his own son to kill someone who could be a step mom to Akechi and that Sojiro got cucked by Shido... I actually thought that Maruki was gonna be Futaba's father.

Talk about a messed up family dynamic o_o


InsaneEnergy4

Akechi and Futaba share the same bloodtype, which is somewhat uncommon in Japan, IIRC. Also, Shido must have known Wakaba himself since Sojiro worked with him back when he was a government official. It'd make sense, and to be honest, it's a bit of a pet headcanon of mine.


EllaspenFrosti

Whoa- wait, they share the same blood type?! I didn’t know that! :O

Okay, no. Here’s why. Akechi lived with his mom. Play royal and do his social link, the bathhouse one he talks about his life before becoming the next detective prince.

I’m aware :) I’ve played through Persona V Royal twice and maxed out Akechi’s confident both times. And yea, Akechi lived with his mom. Just like Futaba lived with hers until the mental shutdown. We know Shido is Akechi’s father, but we only get so much information about Futaba’s father. That he wasn’t present to help raise Futaba and that Wakaba never spoke about him. I thought it would’ve been interesting if Futaba’s unmentioned father was also Shido. I can’t think of anything about Akechi living with his mom that would affect that.


PSILighting

You right I was thinking backwards. My bad. I’m pretty sure Futaba born before her job as a researcher not during so they would have to known each other before the job. But there’s no evidence to point to a biological father after all she has coffee dad.


EllaspenFrosti

Part of me wishes Sojiro and Wakaba could have gotten together, cause you can see the fondness when he talks about her. It’s so heartwarming 3: Gotta love Futaba’s coffee dad.
