Divine Child of Rejuvenation Information

  • Location: Divine Child of Rejuvenation can be found inside of the Inner Sanctum of  Senpou Temple. She is only available after players have completed the Genichiro Ashina fight and talked to Kuro at Ashina Castle.

  • Progression: After giving you the Mortal Blade, she can be spoken with again in order to give you Rice. Once you have used the rice she gives (this include Fine Snow), she will give you another piece of rice when you speak with her again. (Though you will have to rest or travel twice for her to offer more rice.) After initiating and progressing through her questline far enough, she will give you Fine Snow instead of Rice.

  • Combat: Players may not kill the Divine Child of Rejuvenation.
  • Rewards:  Rice, Mortal Blade, Rice for KuroFine Snow, Frozen Tears.

 Associated Quests

  • Note that you must progress with her quest BEFORE killing the Divine Dragon. Once that boss is cleared, it becomes impossible to give the special rice to Kuro, thus making it impossible to finish this questline until NG+.
  • The Old Hag will trade valuable information when given Rice offered to you by the child.

  • Giving her the Sakura Droplet will increase Sekiro's resurrection capacity by 1.

  • Giving her the key item Holy Chapter: Infested triggers a dialogue where she says she still despises the monks, and is required to begin both her questline and the process of getting the Return (Dragon's Homecoming) ending.

  • Giving her the Taro Persimmon gained as a reward for helping Kotaro triggers additional dialogue, and has been confirmed to consume the item upon gifting it to her.

  • Completing her questline, along with making the decision to "Stay Loyal to Kuro," when prompted by Owl are both necessary for getting the Return (Dragon's Homecoming) ending. (Refer to the Endings Guide for further details.)

      Notice how both the Divine Child and Kuro have predominately black hair with some white locks? So do the Okami in the Fountainhead Palace and Sekiro have the same white and black hair. Since Lord Takeru and Tomoe have a connection to the Divine Realm, Okami and Immortality, then in summation, these elements may somehow be related. Perhaps this symptom of Immortality implies that the Okami conceived of the Dragon's Heritage as part of their wedding procession into the Divine Realm. Could the Cradling Ritual be a reverse of this supernatural process?

        So my of my speculations about Dragon's Homecoming Ending: IF THE DEVINE DRAGON and thus dragon heritage originally came from west, WEST, we know west of Japan, there's China at moment is under Dynasty Ming's rule. So they Child of Rejuvenation and sekiro both taking journey to China? is there any thing mentioned in the game, where's exactly they had to go?

          Tfw you realize all the red and white pinwheels are for the dead children and only white one represents her. She was alone and Sekiro is her first friend and father figure.

            When I first saw that she was ill from making Wolf too much Rice, I was legitimately sad. She's been through so much and now she could die because she's been helping Wolf. Think about it, she was made to give the Senpou priests Immortality and after she did what was required of her, they just locked her away in the Inner Sanctum with nobody for company or anyone to even talk to. All her siblings were killed in the experiments carried out by the Temple and she's the only one left. So that made me pretty sad to start with, but I brushed it off because now she had Wolf to talk to. I get some rice from her a few times to give to the old women that give you clues on how to find the Fruits Of The Serpents, go back to her and she's coughing and trying desperately to stay awake just so she can talk to you, the first person she's even seen in what must have been years. And she still offers to give you Rice, even though she knows it could potentially kill her, just so she can help you out, but Wolf refuses, saying she should rest. I know you can cure her, but it was honestly heartbreaking to see that happen to her after everything she's been through and still willing to give you Rice even though she's incredibly ill and can hardly speak.

                DON'T EAT THE SWEET RICE BALL, its not necessary. Go towards the sculptor's idol and it will trigger some additional dialogue about how Wolf is too shy to eat in front of Kuro. Afterwards you can use the item to trigger his dialogue regularly.

                  I think my quest with her is bugged. I had both Serpent Fruits (fresh and old) in my inventory when talking to her at the Inner Sanctum. I was able to give her the fresh fruit but after that she keeps telling me I should give her two of the serpent fruits (again). I have no dialoge option to give her the second fruit. Only thing I can do with her is ask for rice and give her Persimmons. Obviously no option to eavesrop on her and the dry fruit remains in my inventory. I've neither made ape nor owl at this point. I was loyal to Kuro, ate the rice ball in front of him but I was also able to eavesdrop on him right now and talked to Emma afterwards. Anyone else got stuck with her?

                    Question for NG+: When I reached ng+ I already had rice in my inventory (X4) and she only gave me 1 more after talking to her for the first time! Does anyone know if you need to consume all rice in your inventory? She didn't give meine more than the single one, even after consuming 1 rice, why? Can anyone help please?
