Interacting with Characters
You can forge deeper bonds with your companions through battle, meals, and other activities. As your relationships deepen, special conversations can occur, and you can gain bonuses, such as increased might, from being in the same unit.
Rapport signifies the bond between characters. When the rapport of certain characters has reached a particular threshold, rapport conversations can occur between them.
• Rapport Bonus
Fighting together in the same unit increases rapport, and forming a unit with characters who have high rapport can grant Rapport Bonuses.
Rapport also increases when dining at taverns inside of a city or other locations. Seat characters together to boost their rapport. The number of people who can eat together and the amount of rapport you can gain will vary based on the menu.
• Giving Gifts
You can give gifts to characters stationed as guards. When you give a gift, their rapport with Alain will increase. The boost will be even more significant if they like the item.
• Rite of Covenant
When Alain has reached maximum rapport with a companion, he can gift them a special ring. Only one person can be selected as the recipient.
