Persona 5: Fusing Solutions for the Twins' Confidant Cooperation - Twin Wardens Caroline & Justine (Strength)

Most of Persona 5 and Persona 5 Royal's confidant cooperation relationships level up through hanging out and spending time with the character in question, but one cooperation is quite different: that for the strength arcana, the Twin Wardens Caroline and Justine, the jailers in this prison-themed iteration of The Velvet Room. 

Rather than simply hanging out with them, the Twin Wardens want you to bring them specific Persona with specific abilities for each rank. As you level the pair up they unlock more Velvet Room functions for you, useful for getting better Persona for combat - and you'll also over time get to know a little more about this mysterious duo. How to get them all can be a pain, so... here are the solutions we found for each rank, so you don't have to suffer as we did.

If you need more help with character confidant cooperation relationships and the choices you face in them, hit up our Persona 5 confidant guide for all of the conversation choices, skills and unlocks.

Fusion Solutions: Twin Wardens Caroline & Justine Confidant Cooperation Relationship Guide - Strength (La Force - XI)

Here's a full list of fusion solutions, divided by rank. These are by no means exhaustive - but these are the ways we completed the riddles the twins laid out for us to advance their confidant cooperation. 

Rank 1: Jack Frost with Mabufu

Here's a few ways to get a Jack Frost with Mabufu in order to achieve Rank 1: 

  • Unlocked automatically on 5/18.
  • For rank 1, the twins want to see a Jack Frost with Mabufu.
    • Jack Frost learns Mabufu at level 12. Jack Frost is a Magician Arcana Persona, and so with the story-driven progression of the Morgana Magician cooperation you'll be able to get enough bonus experience to boost Jack Frost up to level 12 from very early on in the game.
    • In order to fuse Jack Frost, fuse Berith (Hierophant) with Apsaras (Priestess).
    • You can also fuse Mokoi (Death) with Apsaras (Priestess) for the same result. 
    • These Persona are available in the first palace and in early areas of mementos.
  • Unlocks the Group Guillotine, a new fusing method that lets you fuse three Persona at once.

Rank 2: Shiissa with Frei

  • For rank 2 the twins want to see a Shiissa with Frei.
    • To get a Shiissa with Frei you'll need to fuse Jack Frost (Magician) with Makami (Temperance). Makami will have Frei, and so you can choose for the resulting Shiissa to inherit the skill.

Rank 3: Matador with Magaru

  • For rank 3 Caroline and Justine demand a Matador with Magaru, another Persona that'll require you to do some fusion in order to get access to it with an inherited skill.
    • The quickest and easiest way to get a Matador with Magaru is to use a treasure Persona, Regent. Once you've found one of these once you can recall them from the compendium, but they're expensive. Combine Mokoi (Death) with a Regent to create a Matador - pick up Magaru as the inherited skill from the skill-loaded Regent.
    • You could also achieve this persona by fusing Nekomata (Magician) with Obariyon (Fool) and inherit Magaru.
  • Grants the Lockdown ability within the Velvet Room, allowing you to leave a Persona with the twins for training in attribute resistance.

Rank 4: Flauros with Tarukaja

  • For their 4th rank the twins want a Flauros with Tarukaja.
    • To get this Persona you need to do a group guillotine fusion: Berith (Hierophant), Andras (Devil) & Eligor (Emperor), all obtainable in the first palace or Mementos. To get Tarukaja you'll need a few levels boosted via an Arcana Burst - being Devil, Flauros is boosted by the reporter (Devil, Ohya) confidant cooperation. Alternatively you can level it a bit through fighting.

Rank 5: Ame-no-Uzume with Dodge Psy

  • For rank 5, Caroline and Justine challenge you to fuse a Ame-no-Uzume with Dodge Psy.
    • The Dodge Psy ability can be a bit elusive, but we found it by fusing Kin-Ki (Chariot) with Sui-Ki (Moon). Kin-Ki learns Dodge Psy at Level 27, so you just need to boost it to that level either through the Chariot confidant cooperation with Ryuji or through some combat and then select dodge psy as an inherited ability.
    • You can also fuse Okuninushi (Emperor) with Sadama (Star) for the same results.
    • Finally, Arsene (Fool) and Norn (Fortune) will also give the provided result. 
  • Your reward as well as a rank up is the Guillotine Booster, an increase to the range of group fusions you can do.

Rank 6: Neko Shogun with Dekaja

  • Your relationship deepens, and the twin jailers next demand you fuse a Neko Shogun with Dekaja.
    • The quickest way we found to get a Neko Shogun with Dekaja was to start out with an Anzu (Hierophant) - this guy learns Dekaja at level 28. Boost there to get the move.
      • You could boost to Anzu by fusing Flauros (Devil) and Sandman (Magician), Principality (Justice) and Oni (Strength) or Naga (Hermit) and Rakshasa (Strength), then getting a level boost from your rank in the Hierophant confidant cooperation with Sojiro
    • Your next step is to use Anzu in an advanced fusion - fuse it in a three-way with Kodama (Star) and Sudama (Hermit). Select Dekaja as your inherited ability and this rank is complete.

Rank 7: Lachesis with Tetraja

Strap in, as getting a Lachesis with Tetraja was a complicated multi-step process for us. Here's how we managed it...

    • To get to the 7th rank Igor's deputies ask for a Lachesis with Tetraja.
      • To fuse this Persona, there are stages:
        • Fuse Lamia (Empress) and Sandman (Magician) to create Principality (Justice) - this Persona has Tetraja naturally.
        • Fuse Principality (Justice) with Yaksini (Empress) in order to make an Ame-no-Uzume (Lovers). Make sure you inherit Tetraja as a skill.
        • Finally, fuse your new Ame-no-Uzume (Lovers) with Isis (Priestess) in order to get your Lachesis. Please don't forget to inherit Tetraja - that'd hurt.

    Rank 8: Hecatoncheires with Masukunda

    • Close to the end, things get harder - Caroline and Justine want to see a Hecatoncheires with Masukunda.
      • To get a Hecatoncheires with Masukunda you'll need to fuse two higher-end Persona. Unicorn (Hierophany) and Lilim (Devil) will give you what you need, with Masukunda an available skill to inherit.
      • You can also fuse Clotho (Fortune) with Red Rider (Tower).
      • Another way to get this Persona is to fuse Clotho (Fortune) with Belphegor (Tower) 
    • Unlocks Isolation, a new Velvet Room facility that improves Lockdown.

    Rank 9: Bugs with Samarecarm

    Getting a Bugs with Samarecarm requires you to break out your advanced Persona Fusion tools once again. 

    • For rank 9 the twins want to see a Bugs with Samarecarm.
      • Bugs requires an advanced fusion of three persona - combine Pixie (Lovers) with Pisaca (Death) and Hariti (Empress).
      • Hariti learns Samarecarm at level 41, so boost to it there (the Empress confidant cooperation with Haru will help here) then inherit it from this fusion.

    Rank 10: Seth with High Counter

    High counter is an amazing move, but getting a Seth with High Counter requires another multi-step fusion process. Here's what to do:

    • Caroline and Justine present their ultimate challenge - the twin jailers want you to bring them a Seth with High Counter.
      • Getting Seth will require multiple steps once again:
        • Gain a Skill Card from the mementos request / sidequest The Killer Laughs in the Garbage Can. You'll get this request on 10/14. This skill card lets you teach a Persona high counter, and is the quickest route to this move.
        • Combine Hecatoncheir (Hanged) with Kushinada-Hime (Lovers) to get a Horus (Sun).
        • Combine Isis (Priestess), Thoth (Emperor), Anubis (Judgement) and Horus (Sun) to create Seth.
        • Use the ability card you got from the side quest to teach Seth High Counter and you're done! 
    • Unlocks Special Treatment, allowing you to pay cash to break the rules and fuse Persona above your level.
