[Video] The Confidants of Persona 5 – #3 Sojiro Sakura
The protagonists of Persona 3 and 4 were able to use the bonds formed with primary and secondary characters to boost the powers of their Persona’s during their creation – through a system known as “Social Links”. In Persona 5, this system has been replaced by characters known as “Confidants” – who will grant the protagonist special skill bonuses, useful services and more, the more he gets to know them. Another of the protagonists confidants is the owner of Café Leblanc – Sojiro Sakura – his uncle and carer. If the protagonist chooses to help run the café throughout the game, Sojiro will teach him various coffee and curry recipes. How does that help the Phantom Thieves, you ask? Well, crafted coffee and curry can be consumed during dungeon crawls to restore SP.
