AttacksShinjiro specializes in physical attacks. When attacking with his weapon, he does a heavy amount of strike damage to enemies. Shinjiro is not limited to his axe when getting a critical hit; he is quick to give Shadows a head smash as well! Additionally, he neither specializes in an element nor is weak against one. Much like his stubborn personality, he prefers to go all-out physically.
Castor's skills are also largely physical. His base stats lean heavily towards strength (32) and endurance (27), making Shinjiro a formidable opponent. With the exception of his two Regenerate skills, Castor is clearly an offensive Persona. Castor's attacks seem to have a death-related theme, which could be symbolic of both mythology and Shinjiro's fate. While Shinjiro's weapon only deals strike damage, his Persona has both strike and slash capabilities. Be warned, however. All of Castor's damaging skills cost Shinjiro HP!
