Warning: Possible Persona 5 spoilers will follow.

Persona 5: What is the Regent?

According to SamuraiGamers, the Regent is a brand-new Persona that you can find in Persona 5. It's based on the Regent Diamond — a special, enormous 141-karat diamond from India — named by French regent Philippe the Second. 

You can't use it in combat, but it's an especially powerful boon for fusion. It's part of a larger collection of rare Personas that you'll be able to gather together for special augments. 

Persona 5: What can I use the Regent for?

You'll use the Regent for special fusions, which will power them up dramatically. You'll need to experiment with various Personas in your collection to see which one will be the most powerful and beneficial for your group. You can fuse Personas by returning to the Velvet Room and choosing a spread and fusion type for your Persona.

If you have the Regent, make sure you save it for something special.
