Persona AU: Chidori by Alias-Hugo Persona AU: Chidori by Alias-Hugo
So this is Chidori from an AU where the world of Persona and Westeros (Game of Thrones) collide.

It's a universe my friend Sorcha started and anyone is free to join in the fun - essentially it's Persona 3 & 4 characters in an alternate Westeros (so, the real Game of Thrones characters don't exist, or are off fighting in modern-day Inaba I guess???)

She allowed me to help out putting the minor characters into houses and giving them little character bios, so my grubby fingerprints are kind of all over this AU.

All the info is here:…

(Each Persona character has the same first name but are in the Game of Thrones houses so they have different last names)

Here's what I wrote about Chidori:
"Chidori Connington and Rise Gaunt are ladies-in-waiting to Princess Elizabeth and Margaret of Dragonstone.

Chidori is an ill girl with a mysterious condition that is treated (not very successfully) with bloodletting via leeches. She suffers from strange dreams and Maester Edogawa says if the leeches don’t get rid of them, they might have to resort to trepanning. She draws strange pictures.
(I think maybe Rise should be Margaret’s lady-in-waiting and Chidori Elizabeth’s to get some contrast in the dynamics?)"

*In the original Persona game, Chidori is a girl who wears elaborate "gothic lolita" clothing (it's described by the game as such even though she dresses in all-white) and draws strange pictures. Junpei, the protagonist's loveable goofball BFF, falls for her. She is also, unbeknownst to Junpei, a member of the group STREGA. (These are the basics of her story IIRC, the rest is spoilers).

So as you can see I just put an outline for everyone and writers, RPers and artists can use these (or not) and take the characters from there. I tried to mix in the characters' original Persona stories and elements from the GoT/ASoI&F universe.

Some of my favourites to write about were Lord Shinjiro Baratheon's court of fools - Teddie of Tarth and Ai (Ebihara) Staedmon. Super fun!

I love alternate universes, and I freaking love messed-up characters like this 
I recently discovered the Persona 4 anime, so I may check it out, so I'll finally know what you are talking about XD

l like how you added mentions of outdated medicine, research like this always makes stuff more fun 
I've been recently doing allot of research my self considering the stuff I'm working on 
Even if it's an alternative time-line, having lots of back-ground info on the real-life counterpart definitely helps

Me too, both on the alternate universes and messed-up characters. Setting something in Westeros gives room for characters to be quite messed up! Chidori's backstory is quite sad in P3, so I wanted to keep her story similar in the AU, because it shapes her personality a lot :)

I highly recommend it! :D P4 is happier than the other games in the series I've played but that doesn't mean it's worse quality, the characters are very endearing and the series is focused on the characters so it's a very strong entry.

I love me some outdated medicine, with Mr. Edogawa as the main doctor there's a lot of fun to be had as in P3 he was already coming up with suspicious potions, and that was a modern day setting!

I can definitely see that 

yeah, it's pretty good, alto a bit too much filler for my taste 
still, the characters are fun enough to keep my attention 

oh, I can really imagine you had a blast with a character like that

Well the 'filler' in the game is half the point, you build bonds with people to get stronger Personas. Personally I found all the battles to be more filler since it's all about the characters facing their true selves and growing as people :) But I'm aware I think backwards to others. ^^;

well, if it reflects how the game actually went, then I understand

:nod: It's a funny one - most people who have played the game find the animé to have cut down on the filler a lot, though they consider the social links to be 'good' filler and the level grinding before the bosses as 'bad' filler :)
