Figue’s Growth Factors
Figue does not directly participate in combat. She operates an owl shaped drone called Mimi, and is in charge of support such as providing information. When in dungeons, she can search for enemies with the drone. It informs Ringo of enemy threat levels, and when there is a demon who has gone out on a dungeon search nearby. In some areas the player can control Mimi directly to explore places that Ringo can’t enter and open up new paths.

COMP Remodelling and Growth
At the Mansei Realm COMP Smith facility, COMPs can be remodelled using obtained materials. You can make simply modifications that are helpful in battle such as boosting attack power and reducing MP consumption, and can also add exploration skills such as one which increases the likelihood of obtaining items from defeated enemies. Exclusive to Ringo, commander skills can also be added.

Purchasing and Equipping Accessories
You can buy accessories from the shop Zafiro in Shinsando . Most accessories are related to stats such as attack, evasion and defence, so equip the ones that suit your combat style.
Mannequin (voice: Yuya Hirose)
Zafiro’s part time shop assistant and an extreme narcissist. He thinks nobody to be more beautiful than himself and takes no interest in other people, but he does seem to take some interest in Ringo. His hobby is social media and he has 100 000 followers.
Personal Events and Soul Levels
At Bar Heidrun in Shinsando, Ringo and friends are able to interact. Drinking and talking with Ringo is called a Personal Event, and as a result, Soul Levels will increase. Soul Level represents the level of mutual understanding. There may be some other benefit to raising it further? Soul Levels may also increase with story progression.

The owner of Bar Haidrun. He is quiet and gentle. Devil Summoner’s of various factions, as well as the general public, visit his bar, but he remains completely neutral and will keep secrets in absolute confidence. He will treat every customer with complete sincerity.
