Regent is a Treasure Demon in Persona 5.
The Regent Diamond, also known as Le Régent and the Pitt Diamond, is a 141 carat diamond considered to be the most beautiful and purest in the world. Like Koh-i-Noor, it was possibly mined in Kollur Mine, India. After many attempts to sell it to European royalty, including Louis XIV, it was purchased by the French Regent Philippe II, Duke of Orléans in 1717. It has been used by the likes of Louis XV, Marie Antoinette, and Napoleon Bonaparte. Presently, it remains in the French Royal Treasury at the Louvre. Its value is estimated at $61,440,000 USD.
Due to numerous scandals, and the misfortune of those who have been in possession of the stone, the Regent Diamond is said to be cursed.
"A bluish-tinged diamond that Napoleon Bonaparte had mounted to the pommel of his sword. It was named after the French Regent Philippe II, Duke of Orleans, who had purchased it in 1717."
Regent is the first Persona of the Emperor Arcana and the first Treasure Demon the protagonist encounters. It is a forced encounter in Madarame's Palace. In that encounter, Morgana was mysteriously drawn to the golden vase that contained it and caused everyone sans the protagonist to be trapped in security lasers. The trapped teammates then must all be freed before revealing and fighting it. It will only stay in battle for 2 turns before it runs away, and resists or nulls everything except Psy and Nuke. The first available Personas that can hit its weakness are Kodama, who obtains Psi at level 12, and Makami, who starts with Frei at level 15; if these are not available, the skill Lucky Punch, usable by Obariyon at level 9 and Morgana at level 13, should be used to knock it down via critical hit and initiate a Hold Up; the Rebellion skill, from Apsaras or Succubus, can also be used to increase the chances of a critical hit. It will join immediately without the need of negotiation. While it cannot be equipped and used like a normal Persona, it will be registered in the compendium, granting the protagonist easy access to its wide range of multi-target attack skills through fusion. When itemized via Electric Chair execution in the Velvet Room, Regent yields the Regent accessory, which increases Strength by 3 and grants the Critical Rate up (med) effect to the wearer.
Fusing Treasure Demons works similar to Element fusion in the Shin Megami Tensei series, allowing a persona to "rank up" or down within its own Arcana, making it easy for the protagonist to obtain any missing Personas in their compendium. However, these results will not necessarily be as good as normal fusion.
Fusing Regent has the following effects on the various Arcana:
- Rank +2: Emperor, Hermit
- Rank +1: Magician, Hierophant, Chariot, Justice, Fortune, Hanged Man, Death, Star, Sun
- Rank -1: Fool, Priestess, Empress, Lovers, Strength, Temperance, Tower, Moon, Judgement
- Rank -2: Devil
Persona 5 Royal
Regent is the first Persona of the Emperor Arcana and the first Treasure Demon the protagonist encounters, and remains a forced encounter in Madarame's Palace. Regent resists Physical and Gun attacks, but can be knocked down through the use of Nuclear skills in order to negotiate with it or launch an All-Out Attack. Shiisaa, which can be found in Madarame's Palace, has access to Nuclear skills.
When itemized via Electric Chair execution in the Velvet Room, Regent yields the Regent accessory, which increases Strength by 4 and grants the wearer an automatic Tarukaja buff at the start of the battle. Additionally, if itemized while the fusion alarm is sounding, it would yield the Regent R accessory, a slightly stronger version that, while retaining the Attack Master skill, increases Strength by 5.
