Councillor Confidant Maruki Answers – 100% Links and Platinum Trophy Guide for Persona 5 Royal

Home»Game Guides»Persona 5 Royal Guide»Councillor (Maruki) Confidant Answers

Your dialog choices are important with Maruki, and you do need a matching arcana persona when talking to Maruki for a bonus. You start Rank 1 on May 13, and at that point in the game it may be tricky to have a Councillor arcana persona because your character level may not be high enough for the lowest level Councillor arcana persona.

The exceptions are Rank 0→1→2 (you begin with two rank ups) and Rank 9→10, where dialog choices and matching arcana persona don’t matter. You only need to get to rank 9 for Councillor, the last one is automatic after that.

NOTE: You should try to talk to Maruki whenever he’s available, his contract with the school will eventually end and he will leave on November 18.
