Sojiro is a main character in Persona 5 and Persona 5:Royal.
Persuaded into taking care of a persecuted criminal, Sojiro acts as an unwitting accomplice to the Phantom Thieves (for most of the events of Persona 5). Once their identity is rumbled however, Sojiro remains an ally rather than handing them over to the police. Despite his outward appearance, the grumpy barista hides a heart of gold.
Common Themes and Tropes
Being a coffee shop owner, Sojiro is well suited to blending into the background and absorbing information. This personality trait holds true in fic, where he is often a supporting character rather than the protagonist.
Coffee and curry puns are likely in fic featuring Sojiro.
Sojiro’s only likely shipping is with Futaba’s mother Wakaba, as it is canon that he has feelings for her. AUs where she never died are the most likely scenario where a ship may feature.
Other pairings are unlikely.
