Both Persona 5 and the definitive Persona 5 Royal have been praised throughout the years as one of the best JRPGs of all time, for their in-depth wealth of features and mechanics. One that was already part of the Persona franchise, but refined for 5, is its Social Link system - altered for Persona 5 Royal to be named the Confidant system. 

Along with added bonuses in or outside of battle depending on which Confidant you're dealing with, levelling up the rank of these relationships treat you to each person's personal side story - with some as emotionally captivating as Persona 5 Royal's main story itself.

Each Confidant has ten levels, of which most are levelled up by earning points via correct dialogue choices outside of their story or spending time with them via a side activity. However, there are a handful of Confidants that are exceptions; Morgana (Magician), Prison Master Igor (Fool), Prosecutor Sae Niijima (Judgement), and Justine & Caroline (Strength); which are ranked up through other means. So you fully know what to expect whilst making sure you've levelled up all your social relationships, this Persona 5 Royal confidant guide for Justine & Caroline (Strength) will go through the confidant's benefits, along with how they rank up.
