Teddie is a major character in Persona 4 and all its kindred titles. He is a mysterious creature found in the TV World by the Investigation Team and eventually joins their efforts. He takes the form of a human when outside his bear suit.

[edit] Appearance

Teddie in his standard appearance is a very brightly coloured, cartoon-y teddy bear mascot. He is overly emotive and portrayed rather silly, despite attempts to be serious. His eyes are said to contain lenses that let him naturally see through the fog.

In his human form, he is a young man with blonde hair and blue eyes. Dressed by Chie and Yukiko, Teddie's outfit of choice is an expensive and stylish long-sleeved shirt with a frilled center line, adorned with a rose, and long formal jeans with black formal shoes. When in this form in the TV World, he still does not wear glasses.

His costume in the "Miss" Yasogami Pageant is based on the SMT Demon Alice.


[edit] Character and Personality

Teddie's main role within the Persona 4 cast is comic relief. He has a natural curiosity regarding the human world, and likes to tease the female members of the Investigation Team. He tends to make some unbearable puns, inserting 'bear' into various words. In the Japanese version, he has a verbal tick, adding 'kuma!' to the end of most of his sentences.

Originally, he is very scared of the Shadows. When he meets Yu, Yosuke and Chie near the start of the game, he is very wary of them, believing them to be behind what is part of the Yasoinaba Serial Murder Case. Eventually, he comes to trust them, and assists Yu and Yosuke in finding the location where Saki Konishi was killed.

When Yu has his Awakening, Teddie comes to gain a deep respect for him, referring to him as Sensei. With him, and the rest of the Investigation Team, he slowly gains more and more confidence in himself, while also pondering the mysteries of his past.

After gaining his Persona, he begins to train to become stronger. Due to this, he develops an Ego, and comes to the Human World, where he shows off his new human body. From here he becomes a strong and loyal fighter.

[edit] Personae

Teddie's Initial Persona is Kintoki-Douji, obtained after facing his Shadow Self during the rescue of Rise Kujikawa.

Teddie's Advanced Persona is Kamui. Teddie gains this new Persona after he returns from his journey of self-discovery through The Other Side, and accepting that even though he is a Shadow, he is still just 'Teddie' inside.

His Ultimate Persona is Kamui-Moshiri. After the defeat of Ameno-Sagiri, Teddie and Yu's bond can grow further.
