"It's like you forget where you are, Inmate. You've got some real guts though! With that spirit, you should have no trouble making progress! If you have the will to continue your penal labor, we can grant you greater freedom within this prison."
The protagonist can initiate the Strength Confidant on May 18th by entering the Velvet Room any time after the mission at Madarame's Palace starts. The Strength Confidant is available any time the protagonist can access the Velvet Room, and furthering the Confidant does not cause time to advance. The only restriction in ranking up the Confidant will be the protagonist's level and resources in the form of available Personas or funds. With the last request requiring a level 51 Persona, and keeping pace with the enemies in the Palaces, this Confidant can be completed possibly by Okumura's Palace at the earliest. However, the protagonist will have to do some additional fusion instead of recruiting Shadows in the Palaces or Mementos. Furthermore, the deadline of this Confidant is during December 24, before confronting the Treasure of Mementos in the Depths of Mementos Shrine. After entering the Qliphoth World and beyond, the protagonist cannot advance this confidant as it can only be initiated with the Wardens and not Lavenza.
After entering the Qliphoth World in Royal, the Confidant's description will change from "Twin Wardens" into "Lavenza," and a blue butterlfy can be seen passing by if the protagonist stays on the screen for some time.
