A tricky-to-start Social Link is Temperance, represented in the game by Bebe (or Andre Laurant Jean Geraux, but no one uses his real name). The sole member of the Fashion Club is available once you study enough and work a bit on your other Social Links.
Persona 3 Reload Temperance Social Link Guide (P3R)
You can join the Fashion Club and start the Temperance Social Link after you reach Hierophant Rank 3 and Academics Level 2. During the Rank 3 event for the Elderly Couple, Bebe will visit the bookstore and invite you to his club in the Home Economics Room on the first floor of Gekkoukan High (School Building 1F).
With enough Academics, you can read the sign at the door and start the Temperance Social Link, which will advance whenever you attend the Fashion Club. You can meet Bebe on Thursdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Bebe will always stand next to your classroom doors whenever he’s available.
Bring Temperance Personas like Nigi Mitama when meeting Bebe to get extra points from each correct dialogue option. Doing this will help you complete the Link in no time. If you see the “I feel like I might grow closer to Bebe soon…” message when speaking to him, you will rank up during your next meeting.
Make sure to start Bebe’s Social Link before the third Full Moon Operation in July, or Bebe will move out of Japan and the Link will be unavailable for the rest of your playthrough.
|It will be my first time going. Will you maybe, how do you say, show me ropes?
|Do you like sweets?
|I love the culture of Nihon! Japan is sugoi – amazing!
|I totally agree.
|You have gotten much better at this! Subarashii – wonderful!
|I would like to make something Japanese, but what?
|How about a kimono?
|Are you all right?
|She was taken by the angels!
|Could we go somewhere to eat after this?
|I might never come back to Japan again!
|Just stay in Japan!
|I have barely seen anything at all.
|Why not take a break?
|Will you go to Azuki Arai with moi?
|Let’s do it.
|I have to stay here in Japan even if I have to eat dirt!
|I have your back!
|I will show him a kimono! When he sees it, he will understand the beauty of Nihon!
|That’s a great idea!
|When my uncle sees this, I know he’ll agree with me about how great Nihon is!
|He’ll definitely agree!
|And thanks to all your help, the kimono is almost finished! I feel so blessed!
|Aren’t you homesick?
|At last, it is fini!
|They are the times I spend with you, my tomodachi.
Once you have finished with all those rankings, you will be able to fuse Yurlungur, the ultimate Temperance Persona. You probably won’t have to meet with Bebe outside the usual hours to make up for lost points, but there are always the Sunday hangouts if you need that extra push. It’s easier than Strength, at the very least.
