Ryoji will explain to SEES that his existence brings The Fall, P3R’s take on the end of the world.

Ryoji is actually Pharos, the mysterious boy who appears every month at night to talk to the protagonist, and the Appriser of Death. Nyx, the mother of all and the game’s final boss will bring The Fall to the world as Ryoji explains to the group.

The transfer student will regain his memories in December, and inform SEES that his presence is the signal Nyx needs to end the world. He explains the end is inevitable and that if you kill him, you will lose all your Dark Hour memories and live a normal life until the end.
