Another demon trailer is in for Shin Megami Tensei V, which puts the spotlight on Mithras. This creature hasn’t had too many appearances in the series, though it has shown up in titles like Shin Megami Tensei IV and Persona Q2.

Find some background information on Mithras below, courtesy of the Megami Tensei Wiki:

Mithras is a sun deity who was worshiped in the Roman empire from the 1st to the 4th century AD and is the patron of Mithraism. He was said to be reborn after death, and a festival was held on the winter solstice for him. It is believed that Mithraism was popular in the Roman military and did not accept female disciples. Whether Mithras was directly inspired by the much older Mithra from Persia or Mitra from ancient India remains debatable. It is today considered a mystery religion due to lack of textual records of the cult, but many Mithraic temples and artifacts survive.

He is said to be appear as a being born from a rock as an adult and holding a knife which would be used for bull-slaughtering, a ritual believed to be commonly practiced by the disciples in honor of the god.
