Shikimi (樒) is a secondary character who resides in Utakata Village. The player can find her temple outside the front entrance of the main headquarters.
Role in GamesEdit
She runs the ritual temple in Utakata Village and is the only person who can draw out a Mitama's true potential. She continues her business through any conflict.
When Izuchikanata draws near the village in Kiwami, Shikimi is the only one besides Horō to be completely unaffected by its miasma. She uses her priestess powers to keep portions of the residents' souls grounded in their reality. She entrusts the protagonist and Horō to bring everyone back to the mortal realm.
Calm and aloof, Shikimi moves at her own pace. She seems invested in helping Slayers and listening to souls, but no one claims to truly understand her. Not even the protagonist knows anything about her during the events of the main story. Since they are both priestesses, Kikka tries to get along with her.
The protagonist can complete her chain of personal requests to greatly boost their affinity ratings with her. Her requests are clearly labeled with her name in each posting. They must be completed in consecutive order.
|Request Objectives||Tips for clearing||Reward (aside from bond boost)|
|塵芥x99||Common drop from various lesser demons. Hunt for Gaki or Onibe if somehow too low.||500 haku|
|Slay 3 Nue Yomi||Hunt for them in Miyabi or Bu.||400 haku|
|熱い胸壁x5||Unlocked by chapter 4. Face the Hinomagatori and break off its chest plate. Random drop.||1,000 haku|
|Exterminate 1 Onibe Oboro||Find them by using the Demon Eyes skill. Appears randomly in any area.||2,500 haku|
|竜珠x2||Select a map with Kagachime as an objective. Fight it and break off its decorative parts (non-glowing parts through demon eyes). Rare random drop.||金眼四ツ目の鬼面|
Once her affinity is at maximum level with the protagonist, she will finally tell him/her a few details about herself. Higher affinity additionally increases the chances of her appearing within the village's bathing area.
Pay her a minimal sum of haku to lower or raise a Mitama's level. The minimal cost for increasing experience is .01% of the sum until the next level, but price raises on how many points the player prefers to gain. She can initially level up any starting Mitama up to Level 3. By chapter 3, her limit is changed to Level 5. At the end of chapter 4, she can go to Level 8. After the main story is cleared, she can raise a Mitama to Level 10 (max). She is also capable of performing weapon fusions once the main story is complete.
