Yukiko Amagi in Persona 4

Yukiko is a playable character in Persona 4 (part of the Persona series). She is close friends with Chie, and her Shadow apparently “wants Chie to become her prince and whisk her away into happily ever after” (Zaher, 2014). There is nothing in the game to explicitly mark her as a queer character, however.
