Since Lies of P is based on Pinocchio, you can expect to see several characters from the original story make an appearance. From the demo, we know that Jiminy cricket will appear in your lantern, and so will Geppetto, Pinocchio's creator and father -but you're going to have to find him first.

While there are likely other references, these are the characters we have seen so far. But who knows, we may be seeing some more appearances of the magical sort soon.

That’s everything you need to know about who the main character is in Lies of P. Now that you know who the main character is, you’re going to want to learn how to guard and parry with them, so be sure to check out our guide showing you how to do so.
