Sakura Droplet Story & Lore
- The crystal Sakura Droplet is likely related to the great sakura tree of the Divine Dragon. Pink stones, like the Shelter Stone, will appear in the bodies of those who have long drunk from the Fountainhead Waters. The color pink belongs to a large number of things in Sekiro , like cherry blossoms , resurrection , and soul related items like the Mibu Balloon of Soul. The Rejuvenating Water springs from the Dragon's Blood, making it reasonable to assume that there's something dragon-like about these crystals and bloodstones . In the Dark Souls series, crystals and other minerals were, after all, also closely associated with dragons. In particular, crystals were associated with Seath the Scaleless, the grandfather of Soul Sorcery who borrowed his immortality from something called "The Primordial Crystal". Pinkishness is also related to Dragon Children and the pathology of The Chained Ogre. Gigantism in Dark Souls was often a result of devouring souls, which are pink in Sekiro, potentially explaining what's happening to the Chained Ogre.
