is the initial Persona of the protagonist of Persona 3
. He makes his first appearance during the Protagonist' attempt of summoning a Persona via the Evoker to fend off the looming Shadows. Though Orpheus was successfully summoned, Thanatos would later burst forth from Orpheus' head, ripping him apart. After dispatching several Shadows, Thanatos would then reform back to Orpheus, allowing the Protagonist to gain access to summon Orpheus.
