One of the main features of the new Persona series titles are the so-called Social Link, or relationships with various characters within the game to which the Major Arcana of the tarot cards are associated.
Spending time with them will rank the associated Social Link, allowing us to obtain various bonuses useful for gameplay
In this guide we will explain how to easily advance the Social Link of the arcane Aeon, associated with Marie.
Marie is a new character that was introduced with 4 Golden Person, the improved version initially released on PlayStation Vita in 2012 and which has recently also landed on PC. In fact, he was not present in the original version of Persona 4 and the new content of this new version is linked to his character.
You will meet the protagonist atbeginning of his adventure coincidentally, and she soon turns out to be a resident of Velvet Room, along with Igor and his assistant Margaret.
For this reason you can meet her during the game inside the room of Igor (- in this case represented as a limousine -) or just outside of it.
The girl is recognizable by one very white skin, black hair and gray eyes, and hers peculiar clothing, consisting of a blue hat and bag, a school dress and black and white striped stockings.
Marie dresses eccentrically, but the same can be said for her behavior: she has always lived inside the Velvet Room, which is why she is completely foreign to the outside world and its mechanisms.
In fact, he behaves strangely with Yu and his companions, and seems almost not to be part of the general atmosphere of the game due to the great contrast created by his personality. For example, he will not know what a school is, friendship or everything that is an integral part of the life of a teenager, and in particular of the life of the protagonist and his companions.
For his Social Link, he will often ask you, in his typical stubborn way, to take her outside and show her Inaba to learn more about the world, as requested by his superior Margaret.
Availability and location on the game map
To start this Social Link, just enter the Velvet Room starting from 18 April, during which an event will automatically start that will allow you to start the Social Link. (in case he doesn't leave, just go out and re-enter the room)
Immediately after the event you will need to speak to Marie in the Velvet Room. From this moment on, you can talk to her in front of the door of the room to start Social Link events.
