6. Hades (EU) (PS4) AffinityUpdate notes

Keepsakes

Affinity, and the dialogue that come with them, help flesh out the world of Hades. Consequently, they also unlock a lot of trophies. To raise your affinity with any character, you simply have to give them Nectar. Every character will give you a keepsake after you've given them a nectar, excluding Hades, who give you a keepsake after two Nectars, and Bouldy, who does not give any keepsakes. Once you've unlocked all of the keepsakes, you'll unlock:

You can also level up these keepsakes by completing encounters. 25 encounters are required for Rank 2, while 50 additional encounters are required for Rank 3. Once you've ranked up all keepsakes to Rank 3, you'll unlock:

Chthonic Companions

After completing favors, some characters will give you a Chthonic Companion after receiving an Ambrosia. Companions can be equipped along side keepsakes and can be levelled up to Level 5 with Ambrosia.

CompanionCharacterAbility
BattieMegaeraYour summon deals 2500 damage in an area near your closest foes, then continually down the line.
MortThanatosYour summon deals 3500 damage in an area in front of you, after a brief delay.
RibSkellyYour summon creates a distraction with 250 health, provoking your foes to attack it until it dies.
ShadySisyphusYour summon deals 1000 damage in an area and drops a smattering of health, Darkness, and obols.

I suggest going for Hades or Dusa. Hades does not require Ambrosia, only needing five Nectar, and he returns all the Nectar after reaching full Affinity. While Dusa does require six Nectar and ten Ambrosia, she will offer to return the Ambrosia after reaching full Affinity.

Romanceable Characters

Dusa, Megaera, and Thanatos can all be romanced, after completing their favor, by giving them Ambrosia. All three can be romanced at the same time, but there is no trophy tied to any romance.
