Location Senpou Temple, Mt. Kongo

Divine Child of Rejuvenation is an NPC in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. The last surviving member of the Children of Rejuvenation, she sits within the Inner Sanctum as custodian to the Mortal Blade, who none may draw without dying.

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.)

      Played through both English and Japanese voices and all characters sound great in both except for her.

      Her Japanese voice doesn't fit her at all.

        Did everything but the option to give the two persimmons wouldn't show up. I gave them to her in the other option right under 'request rice,' one at at time, and nothing happened. Still saying I need persimmons. Guess I'm farming for more persimmons to find out how to get that 'give two persimmons' option to come up.

          Guys I need some help. Iv collected both visceras, obtained rice for Kuro and given to him, I took the coocked rice from Kuro and ate it in front of him (not when Kuro gave it to me but I went back to eat sweet riceball before killing the dragon) but the divine child is still in the santa sanctorum and the only options I have is to ask for more rice but at this point ive already cllected rice and rice for kuro so, how can I trigger her spawn in the illusory hall?

            I thought I locked myself out of the purification ending coz I fought the divine dragon before getting the text from the dead monk, but I forgot I had already gotten Kuro to give me the sweet rice balls, and I had both viscera so luckily I'm safe

              If you want to give her the Taro Persimmon, make sure it's the only persimmon in your inventory or you will not give it to her.

                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.

                        i never ate the rice and the they never asked me for anything; didnt know about the quests until after the fire and know i can't do anything with the hearts

                          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?

                                She didn't disappear when i gave rice to Kuro, i even talked to her about it, she did move to illusory hall later, tho i've no idea what caused it.

                                  The reason people are being referred to the ENDING GUIDE page, rather than writing up her quest progression step-by-step here, is to avoid having needless information and questions in more than one place. We don't need to keep writing out the progress of the quest in the comments section; just go to the Endings Guide page to get what you're looking for.

                                    ***INCENSE MUST BE COMPLETE*** To trigger her quest one must first receive mortal blade and at that point she gives you rice for the first time, after which ONE MUST CONSUME RICE TO GET MORE (unsure; traveled multiple times with one still in inventory and received none, when there is no rice in inventory she will continue to give rice after traveling once or twice(one must simply use homeward Buddha, traveling to different locations is unnecessary)) . After receiving rice 3 times, she asks for persimmon (taro or not, one is fine), Kuro's rice is given (one must hand in rice, consume sticky ball rice in front of kuro, exhaust dialogue and return to child), at this point she will disappear into the illusion hall and ask that you retrieve dragon text from side cave next to MAIN HALL sculpture, return to inner sanctum and homeward buddha until she reappears, she will then ask that you retrieve BOTH snake hearts, hand them in and homeward buddha until you can commence dialogue with her again and at that point she will hand in KEY QUEST ITEM.

                                      >Progression: After giving you the Mortal Blade, she can be spoken with again in order to give you Rice every time you rest or travel twice. After progressing through her questline far enough, she will give you Fine Snow instead of Rice. This does not seem to be true. I've rested and traveled to plenty of new areas but she has yet to give me any new rice, saying it's not ready for harvest yet. What gives?

                                        'Giving her the Taro Persimmon gained as a reward for helping Kotaro triggers additional dialogue and does not consume the item.' I'm pretty certain that this is false. My Taro Persimmon was definitely consumed after choosing this option.

                                        • I got sick of trying to figure out how to make her open the door
                                          So i put the ingredients into the incense
                                          Did not speak to emma
                                          And then went back to the inner sanctum and the door was open i got frozen tears from the divine child
                                          :)

                                          • I did everything i was supposed to do for true ending and i got the divine child of rejuvenation all the way up to the point where she eats both snake fruits but for some reason no matter how many times i refresh she doesn't come out of the inner sanctum
                                            I defeated owl
                                            I havent spoken to emma yet
                                            But i let kuro know i have all the items needed to complete the incense
                                            I have yet to put them in the incense though
                                            Because im trying to get the dragons tears from the girl before i go any further but she wont come out of the inner sanctum

                                              Kotaros persimmon is not needed for Return ending. Im not really sure 100% with the order of how i got Frozen tear but it was something like this: 1. 1st time i met her i gave her 'infested' book, as i already had it 2. spammed rest at sculptor and getting rice from her until she became tired 3. gave her persimmon and received rice for kuro 4. gave rice to kuro and got a rice ball 5. returned to divine child and talked about rice ball, gave her persimmon (not sure, i remember i gave her 2 in total) 6. this should trigger a quest to get her another book (just past the main temple, in the cave that you went thru to get senpou esoteric text) 7. another part is getting 2 hearts - from snake boi (1st cave at the bottom of sunken valley, and 2nd from killing snake) 8. you should receive the frozen tear now Sometime during this she travels to illusion realm. As i wrote before im not 100% sure about the order, especially the 2nd half. I did all of this during the Palace part of the game

                                                  Edited the page to clarify how to get the Dragon's Homecoming Ending, though parts of the guide are unconfirmed as of now due to conflicting reports about DOING WHAT makes the Child move to the Hall of Illusion. People have said that just giving her the Holy Tome: Infested and ONE Persimmon is enough, that you need to give her multiple Persimmons including Taro's Persimmon, that you only need to give her the Holy Tome: Infested and progress the story enough, etc, etc. As it stands: just go into all of this thinking that both the Holy Tome: Infested and at least ONE or MORE Persimmons are required to progress through her quest.

                                                    I don't know why, but I think she is bugged in my case. I found the text - gave it to her. Dialogue triggered. I gave her the Persimmon, after that the Taro Persimmon and after that another 3 normal Persimmons. It looked like she could take another one, so I went and killed some Apes until I got one. Got back to her - Dialogue Option is gone. She also never relocated until now (just finished Kuros Incense Quest) Will she relocate later? Or will she never relocate in this playthrough.

                                                        You do not need to give her Taros Permission for her to move to the Hall of Illusions to get this ending, what you need to get her is the Holy Scriptures of the Infested. Once you give her this (assuming you dived to get it or for the npc) she will move to the Hall of Illusions

                                                          Get her ending. Reach the rooftop with the Owl. Stay loyal to Kuro and defeat Owl instead. From there you will simply have to follow the story until the end with a few things you have to do before finishing the last boss. Gather both Serpent Fruits (fresh and old one) from the Giant Serpents. For the old one head to the area before the Guardian Aboss fightght, but instead of going in the direction of the Ape, go to the very bottom of the area in another direction. You will reach a cave with the Giant Serpent in it. There follow the path until you can see its head. Drop down on the left side and use Puppeteer Ninjutsu on the monkey and it will distract the snake for you. Head through the door there and pick up the Old Fruit. For the Fresh Fruit head to the Senpou Temple and drop down to the right of the exit of the first Idol in the area. There you will see a mechanism for a kite and a small enemy next to it. Use Puppeter Ninjutsu again on this small guy and he will operate the kite for you. Follow the path until you can grapple to the kite and it will transport you to a new area from which you can kill the Giant Serpent. Fresh Fruit is yours. The second step for the ending is the Divine Child in Inner Sanctum. You will have to give a scroll you will find by diving in the pond in the Temple Ground, she will disappear into the illusion where you chased the monkeys. Find her again in the Ilussion where you fought the 4 small monkeys. Talk to her and she will return to the Inner Sanctum and will tell you about the fruits. She will tell you to find the monk who is in the dark cave next to the temple you are in. Find him there and bring what you got from him back to her. Now you can feed her the fruits. You will receive frozen Dragon Tears from her which you will have to use at Kuro after defeating the last boss in the game. If a sequence with the Divine Child won’t trigger try to rest at an Idol, feeding Rice to Kuro and coming back, or simply progressing the story a bit further. Some people have troubles triggering events with her for yet unknown reasons, but this is basically what you have to do for the ending.

(Kuro might have given you another Sweet Rice Ball earlier, check the description to ensure you eat the right one) 13: Returned to the Divine Child and spoke to her about Kuro. (Gave her two more persimmons, unsure if needed to progress) 14: Left to get the Taro Persimmon from Kotaro's white pinwheel path, returned to find the Divine Child in the Hall of Illusions. She tells you to speak with Senpou Temple's High Priest. 15: "Spoke" with the High Priest and retrieved the "Holy Chapter: Dragon's Return" (He can be found in the underground temple behind the Main Hall, there's a small hole in the left wall of the room with the mini-centipede guys. It's the path you take to get the Senpou Esoteric Texts) 16: Rested (returns the Divine Child to her temple), spoke with her and gave her the "Holy Chapter: Dragon's Return" 17: Spoke with the Divine Child again, gave her both of the Serpent Viscera. 18: Rested, ease dropped on the Divine Child's temple door. (You sick bastard) 19: Rested, spoke with the Divine Child and received "Frozen Tears" 20: Gave the Divine Child the Taro Persimmon (Unsure if needed to progress, probably not, but she deserves the best), receiving rice from her now yields "Fine Snow".
