Persona 3Edit

The Temperance Arcana Social Link is represented by Andre Roland Jean Gérard (also known as Bebe), a French exchange student of Gekkoukan High School. The Protagonist can initiate the Social Link once the Hierophant Arcana Social Link has reached to a sufficient level. Alternatively, if the Protagonist's Academics are high enough, he can meet Bebe in the home economics room at Gekkoukan High School.

The Temperance Arcana powers up eveytime the Protagonist attends the home economics activities and interact with Bebe, where he helps him in various activities. Completing the Temperance Arcana Social Link bestows the Ultimate Form of the Temperance Arcana, Byakko.
