Defense mechanism.


I feel like every Persona 4 fan has their own thoughts about Souji’s shadow, and while I have a couple of different theories and opinions on the matter, my personal favorite is that Souji does, in fact, have a shadow, but it refuses to manifest.  

A lot of shadow!souji’s are condescending and snide - frustrated with Souji’s friends for their dependance on him even as it despairs of losing them - but I prefer the idea that Souji, at his core, refuses to be an imposition.

He doesn’t open up to his friends or burden them with his problems, because he is too scared of appearing troublesome or problematic.   He is afraid that the team will give him up as a bad investment.  

So, Souji’s shadow never appears, because it refuses to bother the Investigation Team.  Because of this, Souji has never gotten the chance to accept it.  

Hell, Souji’s shadow might be downright helpful.  Anything to make sure that the group doesn’t abandon its leader.

Long story short, I once wanted to write a fic about how Izanagi was simply Souji’s shadow in disguise, watching and waiting until everyone was safe, secure and happy before it made its presence know.

On an unrelated note, it has been a long time since I last painted in this style, and I missed it.  This was fun.
