Sekiro sculptor

Description

Sculptor

The Sculptor(仏師) is the hermit who inhabits the Dilapidated Temple, where he passes his days carving Buddha Statues. He rescued Wolfafter his defeat at the hand of Genichiroand gifted him a Prosthetic Armto replace the one he lost. Despite his stoic appearance, he'll help Sekiroon his quest to save Kuroby upgrading his new arm, which he calls a "Shinobi's Fang", with the Prosthetic Toolsthe man brings him and by giving him the Prosthetic Esoteric Text, that he himself wrote, and the Shinobi Esoteric Text.

He's later revealed to be a former shinobi named Orangutan (猩々), who became the new sculptor of the temple to repay his karmic debt. Orangutan trained in the Sunken Valley with his partner, a woman named Kingfisher. He later joined forces with Isshin Ashina to fight for the rebellion. One day, in the aftermath of a fight, while scouting the battlefield, he found a lonely child named Emma, who'll later be adopted by his friend Lord Dogen, a notorious doctor. Driven by bloodlust, Orangutan found himself on the verge of becoming a Shura, but Isshin intervened and cut off his left arm to prevent this. To help him, Dogen crafted a prototype of what will later become the Prosthetic Arm the Sculptor will pass on to Wolf.

As Sekiro returns to the Dilapidated Temple, after the final invasion of the Central Forces, he discovers that the Sculptor has left his home and, when questioned, Fujioka explains that he was heading for the battlefield, muttering about "the flames". Following a trail of burning buildings in Ashina Outskirts, Sekiro finds himself face to face with the Demon of Hatred, the vessel of wrath the Sculptor turned into.

Location

Progression #1 (Shinobi's Fang)

Ashina Outskirts (Dilapidated Temple)

As suggested by the Sculptor, everytime Wolf obtains a Prosthetic Tool, he should bring it to the hermit so that he could assemble it on his Prosthetic Arm.

When Wolf brings the Slender Finger to him, he recognizes it as belonging to his old sparring partner Kingfisher. If Wolf obtains the Malcontent's Ring, once the Sculptor upgrades his Finger Whistle with it, he admonishes the shinobi about the power of its somber melody.

Progression #2 (Battle Sense)

Ashina Outskirts (Dilapidated Temple)

Once Wolf obtains his first Skill Point, upon talking with the Sculptor, Sekiro will receive the Shinobi Esoteric Text.

When Wolf retrieves and installs at least three Prosthetic Tools, the Sculptor will gift him the Prosthetic Esoteric Text.

Progression #3 (Honing the Fang)

Ashina Outskirts (Ashina Castle Gate)

Defeat Gyoubu Oniwa to obtain the Mechanical Barrel.

Ashina Outskirts (Dilapidated Temple)

Bring the Barrel to the Sculptor to unlock the option to "Upgrade Prosthetic Tool" through Purifying Agents.

Progression #4 (Dragonrot)

Ashina Outskirts (Dilapidated Temple)

Should Wolf die four times, the Sculptor will end up afflicted by Dragonrot, but he'll reassure Sekiro that this disease can't kill him as he is no ordinal man. Yet, if not cured, it won't be possible to complete Progression #5 and Progression #6.

Talk with Emma and reload the area to find her tending to the Sculptor: she'll now tell Wolf that she can create a cure to Dragonrot if the shinobi fetches her the blood sample of another infected person.

After fulfilling her request, reload the area to have Emma gift Wolf the Recovery Charm and Dragon's Blood Droplet [x1]: now consuming said item at any Sculptor's Idol via "Dragonrot Restoration" will heal all affected characters.

Once the Sculptor's has recovered from his disease, speak to Emma to receive Ashina Sake.

Progression #5 (Death Wish)

Ashina Outskirts (Outskirts Wall - Gate Path)

Speak to the Timid Maid to receive the Young Lord's Bell Charm.

Ashina Outskirts (Dilapidated Temple)

Interact with the statue of the kind-faced Buddha inside the temple to enter the Hirata Estate memory.

Hirata Estate (Hirata Estate - Hidden Temple)

Defeat Lady Butterfly.

Ashina Outskirts (Dilapidated Temple)

Upon returning from the memory, interrogate the Sculptor and "ask what the Buddha showed to him" to have him reply that all he can see are incessant flames consuming everything in sight.

Before defeating Great Shinobi - Owl, offer the Ashina Sake, the Monkey Booze and the Unrefined Sake (order doesn't matter) to the Sculptor.

After triggering the first invasion of Ashina Castle by the Central Forces, eavesdrop on Emma and the Sculptor, then talk to the former. Reload the area to have her disappear and speak with the Sculptor, who'll tell Wolf he'll be the one to kill him.

Ashina Outskirts (Flames of Hatred)

While fighting the Demon of Hatred, Wolf will now have some unique lines.

Progression #6 (Sake)

Ashina Outskirts (Dilapidated Temple)

If offered different drinks, he will reminisce about what each one reminds him of:

Rot Essence

Rot Essence Sculptor.png
Rot Essence: Sculptor  
After Waking UpWolf: ... What is this?

Sculptor: So, you're awake. Looks like death is not your fate... just yet.

First EncounterSculptor: What do you call yourself?

Wolf: ........
Sculptor: Your eyes... The eyes of a wolf who has failed in his duties... Or so it seems to me.
Wolf: That is not your concern.
Sculptor: Spoken like a true shinobi. I must carve the Buddha. You do what you will.

Asking "How Did I Get Here"Wolf: Why am I here?

Sculptor: ... All I did was drag you here. Didn't even know if I was dragging a corpse. Couldn't let you get eaten by a pack of wild dogs.
Wolf: How long was I asleep?
Sculptor: Some time has passed since I found you.
Wolf: ... I see.
Sculptor: However... Your master yet lives. He's being held prisoner in Ashina Castle. They will soon make use of his bloodline. Looking at you, I'm sure you appreciate the value it has.

Asking About Left ArmWolf: My left arm... What did you do to me?

Sculptor: That is what I call the Shinobi Prosthetic. A fitting fang for a one-armed wolf. Useless when it comes to carving Buddha though. You can have it.
Wolf: Shinobi Prosthetic...
Sculptor: It is no mere replacement for your lost arm. Come to me if you find any shinobi tools.
Wolf: Shinobi tools? I see. For this device...
Sculptor: You catch on quick. If you bring me shinobi tools, I'll find a way to fit them to the Shinobi Prosthetic. Then you'll come to appreciate its worth. I've said too much... Go now.

Asking About the Divine Heir's BloodWolf: What did you mean when you said they'll make use of his bloodline?

Sculptor: I don't know much about him. Except... The Dragon's Heritage. There's a special kind of blood by that name. And that blood runs through your master's veins.
Wolf: So the Divine Heir... Someone's after him.
Sculptor: Might be that the strange things happening to your body have something to do with that.

Leaving for the First TimeSculptor: You're quite the strange one, yet... Other peculiar visitors have come to this temple. There's one in the clearing to the right of the gate leading off the temple grounds. Two strangers in strange circumstances...
Talking (Generic)Sculptor: No matter what I do, any Buddha I carve is an incarnation of wrath. Thus is the fate of those who owe a deep karmic debt. You'll understand when you try carving one for yourself one day. So... Need something?
Talking While Having Young Lord's Bell CharmSculptor: I can... hear the ring-ring of a bell chime.

Wolf: You mean... this old bell? An old woman asked me to offer it to Buddha.
Sculptor: That bell... Have you seen it before?
Wolf: No... It is unfamiliar.
Sculptor: It appears the bell disagrees. I think it's trying to tell you something.
Wolf: What...?
Sculptor: Give it as an offering. That kind-faced Buddha near the wall is different from the Buddhas I make. It was carved by the hand of the true Sculptor...

Talking Before Offering CharmSculptor: I've gone and said much too much. Anyway, do what you will. Offer the bell to Buddha, or don't. So... Need something?
Offering Charm to BuddhaSculptor: Close your eyes. Hear the bell speak to you. The bell's chime will stir your throughts... and awaken old memories from their slumber.
Awakening in the Temple Once AgainSculptor: (coughing) So... you're awake. Your death is not your fate... just yet.
Afflicted with DragonrotSculptor: (Coughing)

Wolf: What's wrong...?!
Sculptor: Dragonrot. The Stagnation overflows and spreads... A disease that leads eventually to death...
Wolf: ...What... are you talking about?
Sculptor: You don't need to worry about me. I'm... not normal, you see. It's difficult for me... to speak now. Ask Emma... about the rest...


Sculptor: (Cough, cough...)
Wolf: Sculptor...
Sculptor: I don't need your concern. I'm... not normal, you see. No mere Dragonrot... will kill me.

Talking while Emma is Treating HimSculptor: (Cough) You're.... here too? It's so... busy here today...
Talking After Entering the Hirata Estate memorySculptor: ... So you're back.

Wolf: Was that... a dream...? Or was it real? Sculptor: Hmm... Whether it was a dream or it was reality... I have no idea. There is one thing I can tell you... The Great Buddha has seen fit to awaken old memories within you. What you felt, what you remembered... That is what it all depends upon. I’m not sure if what I saw is what truly happened... That's how it works.

After Defeating Lady ButterflyWolf: It appears... As though your old memories have been awakened.

Sculptor: ...Yes. I saw... the Divine Heir.
Wolf: I see.
Sculptor: I won't say any more, and neither should you. All that you saw was yours alone.

Saying NothingWolf: I understand.

Sculptor: Good.

Asking What the Buddha Showed HimSculptor... What did that Buddha show you?

Sculptor: Were you listening?
Wolf: ...Tell me.
Sculptor: Flames.
Wolf: Flames...?
Sculptor: That is all I can see. It doesn't matter what offering I make. Flames... spreading as far as the eye can see and consuming Ashina...
Wolf: That's...
Sculptor: We're done here.

Talking After Acquiring At Least One Skill PointSculptor: Seems to me your battle sense has returned. You're more like a shinobi than before, if only a little. Take this.

Wolf: What is it...?
Sculptor: Shinobi techniques... Recorded within are fighting techniques that cannot be performed by samurai. Whether you make use of them or not is up to you. Shinobi aren't the only ones with their own fighting techniques...

Presenting First ToolWolf: I've found one...

Sculptor: A shinobi tool?
Wolf: Yes.
Sculptor: I said before that your prosthetic arm was a fang... But by fitting shinobi tools to your arm you'll be able to change the form of that fang. Thick shields? Break them into splinters... Swift foes? Bring them down from afar. Fitting more devices means more ways to slay your enemies. If there's someone that needs killing, there's a proper way to kill them... That's all there is to it.
Wolf: ... Seems you know this prosthetic very well.
Sculptor: I should calm myself. The more I speak of bloodshed, the more demonic my sculptures will become. Give it here. I'll fir that tool for you.

Talking After Fitting First ToolSculptor: If you want more forms for that fang of yours... You'll need to search for more shinobi tools. There's no turning back from this path now. The least I can do is load your arm.
After Acquiring Mechanical BarrelSculptor: Ohhh... I see you've acquired something quite interesting. A mechanical barrel. It's a mechanism that can serve as the very core of the prosthetic. Hand it here. I'll fit it to the arm for you.

Wolf: What difference does the barrel make?
Sculptor: With a versatile base such as this... I can use various purifying agents to further hone that fang of yours.
Wolf: Purifying agents?
Sculptor: Purifying agents are materials that can be used together with the barrel... things like gunpowder and scrap metal. So if you find something of that sort, be sure to bring it my way.

After Fitting At Least 3 Prosthetic Tools To Your ArmSculptor: The Shinobi prosthetic... Appears you've taken to it quite well. Here, this is for you. (Gives Shinobi Esoteric Text)

Wolf: What is it...?
Sculptor: It contains ways to... Bite into your foes with that fang of yours... In other words, fighting techniques for your prosthetic arm.
Wolf: ...I see.
Sculptor: I had thought that prosthetic techniques wouldn't ever be needed again... But it seems I was wrong.

TalkingSculptor: If you want more forms for that fang of yours... You'll need to search for more Shinobi tools. There's no turning back from this path now. The least I can do is load your arm.
Talking After Obtaining the Finger WhistleSculptor: What's that you have there... Where did you get that finger?

Wolf: The Guardian Ape of the Sunken Valley... I found it in his belly.
Sculptor: ... I see. ... To think it was in the belly of an Ape... Let me see it. I'll fix it to your prosthetic arm.

Talking After Crafting the MalcontentSculptor: ... Listen. That finger whistle I've fixed onto your arm... I'm sure it'll play a somber... but enjoyable tune. Make sure you use it well.
After Defeating GenichiroSculptor: Oh, you're here? Need something?

Wolf: The Divine Heir...
Sculptor: Huh?
Wolf: You saved him.
Sculptor: That has nothing to do with me.
Wolf: It does... You have my thanks.
Sculptor: ...... The shadow in your eyes... it's become a shade lighter.
Wolf: What?
Sculptor: No matter... So, you need something?

Talking (Generic)Sculptor: I've abandoned the path of the Shinobi. Yet I couldn't abandon that Shinobi Prosthetic no matter how hard I tried. I'd never have believed that one such as myself would save another who'd lost their arm like you have... I'm sure it is fate.
Talking (Generic)Sculptor: ......... Ahh.. I'm parched. Could use a cup of tea...
Talking (Generic)Sculptor: Idols are all I can carve.The only Buddhas the wood shows me have... faces of wrath. And I can only carve what I see.
When Emma is by the Sculptor's sideSculptor: I see you're here, too... I'm busy carving my Buddha.
After Eavesdropping on Emma Talking about the Central ForcesSculptor: You'll be the one to kill me.

Wolf: ... What are you talking about?
Sculptor: Don't play the fool. To make her have to kill me... I don't think I could bear it. Please...

Greeting Afterward (generic)Sculptor: ......... This temple has too many visitors lately.
Talking Afterward (generic)Wolf: ........ Sculptor?

Sculptor: ...What? Need something?

Leaving Afterward (generic)Sculptor: ...Hey. Don't be afraid to go all out.
Talking After Defeating Great Shinobi - OwlSculptor: A true wolf... Would choose for himself how to use his fangs. ... The look on your face tells me you've done just that.
Hinting at EavesdroppingSculptor: ......... Say...

Wolf: What?
Sculptor: Did you know? This temple is horribly drafty.
Wolf: ........ Sure it is.

Talking After Defeating Owl (Father)Sculptor: You have a slightly different air about you now. It's as though... you've overcome something.
While Emma is tending to the Dragonrot-infected SculptorSculptor: (Cough, cough...)

Emma: Yes... That should be enough. Thank you, Orangutan.
Sculptor: Emma. What are you going to do... with the coughed-up blood of an old bastard...?
Emma: I'm going to research the Dragonrot. I want to find the cure for it. Orangutan... I'm doing this for your sake, too.
Sculptor: ... You are, are you? I don't need your meddling, I'll get over it on my own...
Emma: ......... Hmm. Now then... let me take a look... Dragonrot infected blood... How exactly... Is this illness caused...?
Sculptor: ......... Hah. Dougen... Emma is just like you.

After the Central Forces invade AshinaEmma: Orangutan... The Central Forces are here.

Sculptor: ... Are they now? They never change their thieving ways...
Emma: Are the flames... still burning?
Sculptor: Emma... The answer to that isn't going to change. I could carve Buddha idols for all eternity and the flames of hatred would still rage on. The most I can do is keep them in check.
Emma: ......... Orangutan.
Sculptor: What is it?
Emma: If the time ever comes, then I'll...
Sculptor: ......... I have Buddha to carve... Good-bye...

Given Dragonspring SakeWolf: I brought sake.

Sculptor: Oh, is this Dragonspring? I'll have some. Hooh.... Dragonspring...? That's fine quality sake. I'll take it then. Now that really hits the spot... There's nothing quite like this.
I often drank this with Dogen... Emma would keep our cups filled. Have you known Lady Emma for long? That was a long time ago... I found her on a battlefield... a battlefield. She crept up slowly towards me, her eyes fixed, unwavering on the rice I held in my hand. It became too much to bear, so I gave it to her. Then she just started following me. After that...
Well, a while later... Ashina became a dangerous place for the both of us. Around then Dogen adopted her as his daughter. ........ I suppose it didn't really matter where she ended up. One thing's for sure, she's happier for the fact she wasn't raised by a shinobi.

Given Ashina SakeWolf: I brought some tea.

Sculptor: (Sniffs) This "tea" smells pretty good. Suppose I'll have some. Oh, I needed that.. This tea reminds me of Emma's father. About Lady Emma's father... Dogen... He was an extraordinary doctor. He was also very well-versed in mechanisms and devices. ... Better put, he was obsessed with mechanisms to the point that it affected his health... He didn't take much else seriously, but I owed him my life... Ah, and we could say that you owe him your life as well.
Wolf: What do you mean?
Sculptor: When I lost my left arm, Dogen created that thing... which has now become your left arm. The first version was a complete failure, didn't work at all. So he remade it. Then he remade it again, and again, countless times. (chuckles)
Wolf: What?
Sculptor: He told me I needed to practice with the prosthetic in order to use it properly... So Emma would pester me into carving her spinning tops and other toys. After much... training... of that sort, it came to be called a Shinobi Fang. In other words, that prosthetic arm... is Dogen's legacy. His legacy... Ahh... so much time has passed. ......... While I have abandoned my shinobi ways... That alone, I could not bear to abandon.

Given Monkey BoozeWolf: I brought something for you.

Sculptor: ... Monkey Booze, is it? Haaa! It burns the throat, same as ever. This really brings back memories.
Wolf: Did you drink this often?
Sculptor: I trained in the techniques of the shinobi in the valley where the monkeys dwelled...
Wolf: ... By yourself?
Sculptor: ... No. There were two of us. We were rogue shinobi... There was no proper master for the likes of us. That's why we went to the valley. To run, to jump, to clash swords... where one slip would mean your doom. That was how we trained.
... We came to move exactly as monkeys did after a time. I'd drink this Monkey Booze whenever I tired of training. And I’d listen to the howl of my partner’s whistling finger while I drank.
Wolf: Howl...?
Sculptor: It was from his unique ring... Whistling through that ring... Would fill the valley with a somber melody.
Strangely enough, I enjoyed that sound. I listened to it so often.

Given Unrefined SakeWolf: I brought some sake.

Sculptor: Don't mind if I do. Hmm...
Wolf: Is it not to your liking?
Sculptor: ... No, it's damn good. Ahhh! But it does make my old wounds ache.
Wolf: Your left arm?
Sculptor: Yes. And this sake was a favorite... of the man who cut it off.
Wolf: Who was...?
Sculptor: Lord Isshin.
Wolf: ... Isshin? Why?
Sculptor: ......... He... did it for my sake. Ahhh. I was on the verge of being consumed...
Wolf: Consumed by what?
Sculptor: ... Shura. ... Well, whether you believe me or not, that's for you to decide. But you'd do well to beware... Shura's shadow.

Notes

  • If failed to acquire prior to the Sculptor's disappearance, both the Shinobi Esoteric Text and Prosthetic Esoteric Text will be found near his Workshop.
  • In New Game Plus, if one has chosen to abandon Kuro's Charm in the young lord's hands, the Sculptor (and later his Workshop) will hold Kuro's Charm, in case the player desires to retrieve it, but it won't be possible to separate from it again for the rest of the whole playthrough.

Trivia

  • His japanese name 仏師 literally translates to "sculptor specialized in Buddha statues".
  • In japanese, his old shinobi name 猩々 refers to a spirit with red hair and face called shōjō, that has a particular fondness for alcohol.
  • The temple where the Sculptor resides is covered in ofuda, sacred talismans used to repel or imprison evil spirits.

Cut Content

  • It is revealed through some text files in the game that there was going to be another way to cure Dragonrot, that involved Wolf giving the cure, a medicinal drink, to those affected by the disease:
Cut Dialogue
Giving Dragonrot CureSculptor: (Cough, cough...)

Wolf: I've brought medicine for the Dragonrot. Lady Emma made it.
Sculptor: Emma did it...? So she did...

After Giving Dragonrot CureSculptor: ........ (Cough)

Wolf: Any change?
Sculptor:Well... Breathing's a bit... easier now. ...Well? Need something else?
Wolf: ......... Sculptor. You said you're "not normal." What does that mean?
Sculptor:......... The only thing I do at this desolate, ruined temple... is carve wrathful Buddha idols. These are not the actions of one who is right in the head.

With EmmaSculptor: Emma. What are you going to do... with the coughed-up blood of an old bastard...?

Emma: I'm going to research the Dragonrot. I want to find the cure for it. Orangutan... I'm doing this for your sake, too.
Sculptor: ... You are, are you? I don't need your meddling. I'll get over it on my own...
Emma: ......... Hmm. Now then... Let me take a look... Dragonrot infected blood... How exactly... Is this illness caused...?
Sculptor: ......... Hah. Dougen... Emma is just like you.

The Sculptor (仏師)or Busshi of Aredera (荒れ寺の仏師, The Buddha-Carver of the Dilapidated Temple) as he is referred to as in promotional material for the game, is an NPC in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. Located in the Dilapidated Temple near the Ashina Outskirts, he is one of the first characters you meet, and an integral part of both the story and your upgrades. The Sculptor finds Sekiro left for dead in a field near the Ashina Reservoir, and nurses him back to health, before providing him with a Prosthetic Arm capable of equipping Prosthetic Tools.

Sculptor Information

The Sculptor is a mysterious, taciturn old man of advanced age who is missing his left arm. He resides within a ruined shrine deep within the mountainous region near the outskirts of Ashina, and seems to devote all of his time to carving statues of the Buddha with wrathful, rather than serene, faces. For reasons known only to himself, he chooses to aid Sekiro on his quest, saving him from certain death at the hands of Genichiro Ashina after the Wolf attempted to spirit away the Divine Heir from his imprisonment.

As Sekiro gets to know the Sculptor throughout the course of his journey, and with the help of a little tea here and there, he begins to discover more about the man's unknown past. Once, the Sculptor was a shinobi without a master who went by the name of 'Orangutan,' and spent his time training amongst the monkeys of the Sunken Valley. However, after losing a dear friend and almost succumbing to his own bloodlust, he was hunted down by his lord, Isshin Ashina, and lost his left arm in the battle that followed.

Though the loss of his arm led to the Sculptor giving up his life as a shinobi: the Prosthetic Arm he gives Sekiro was originally built for him by his close friend Dogen, a master physician who urged the Sculptor to help him perfect his Prosthetic through years of training and iterating on the device. Sometime later, after Dogen passed—or vanished; no one is quite sure—and the flames of rebellion began to stir around Ashina, it seems that the Sculptor retreated into the mountains around the castle in order to separate himself from the rest of the world. Now retired to his solitude, with Emma (the adoptive daughter of Dogen) the only soul to ever visit him at the Dilapidated Temple where he now resides, the Sculptor lives out the rest of his days seemingly seeking atonement while being constantly plagued by visions—a sea of endless flames, consuming him and all of Ashina...

  • Location: The Sculptor can be found inside of his workshop within the Dilapidated Temple.

  • Progression: The Sculptor does not move from his spot in the Dilapidated Temple until certain circumstances have been met. Note that the player can still install or upgrade prosthetic tools in his absence, with Sekiro performing the modifications himself using the Sculptor's discarded tools.  

  • Combat: Yes; players may kill the Sculptor under specific circumstances. 

  • Rewards: The Sculptor is responsible for fitting and upgrading the various shinobi prosthetic tools found throughout the game. Will provide certain Esoteric Texts as Sekiro gains skill points and acquires new shinobi prosthetics. When given alcohol, the Sculptor will offer new dialogue.

Associated Quests

  • If afflicted by Dragonrot and then cured of the sickness, speaking with Emma will reward the player with the Sculptor's favorite "tea"--a bottle of Ashina Sake. The physician will ask you to give the "tea" for the Sculptor, which then rewards you with additional background lore and dialogue once you've done so. (The same occurs if you give the Sculptor Unrefined Sake, Monkey Booze, or Dragonspring Sake, each coming with different opportunities to learn more lore and background info.)

Dialogue

  • When you first encounter him:
    • "So you're awake. Looks like death is not your fate just yet. Some time has passed since I found you: your master still lives but they'll soon make use of his bloodline. The limb you have lost will give way to something more... useful. You'll learn to appreciate its worth. Your death won't come easily."

  • After giving him the Unrefined Sake:
    • "Don't mind if I do. Hmm... ......... ... No, it's damn good. Ahhh!  But it does make my old wounds ache. Yes. And this sake was a favorite... of the man who cut it off. Lord Isshin. ......... He... did it for my sake. Ahhh. I was on the verge of being consumed... ...Shura. Well, whether you believe me or not, that's for you to decide. But you'd do well to beware... Shura's shadow." 

  • After giving him the Ashina Sake:
    • "(Sniffs) This "tea" smells pretty good. Suppose I'll have some. Oh, I needed that... This tea reminds me of Emma's father. Dogen... He was an extraordinary doctor. He was also very well-versed in mechanisms and devices. ...Better put, he was obsessed with mechanisms to the point that it affected his health... He didn't take much else seriously, but I owed him my life... Ah, and we could say that you owe him your life as well. When I lost my left arm, Dogen created that thing... which has now become your left arm. The first version was a complete failure, didn't work at all. So he remade it. Then he remade it again, and again, countless times. (chuckles) He told me I needed to practice with the prosthetic in order to use it properly... So Emma would pester me into carving her spinning tops and other toys. After much...training... of that sort, it came to be called a Shinobi Fang. In other words, that prosthetic arm... is Dogen's legacy. His legacy... Ahh... so much time has passed. ......... While I have abandoned my shinobi ways... That alone, I could not bear to abandon." 

  • After giving him the Monkey Booze:
    • "... Monkey Booze, is it? Haaa! It burns the throat, same as ever. This really brings back memories. I trained in the techniques of the shinobi in the valley where the monkeys dwelled... ... No. There were two of us. We were rogue Shinobi... There was no proper master for the likes of us. That's why we went to the valley. To run, to jump, to clash swords... where one slip would mean your doom. That was how we trained. ... We came to move exactly as monkeys did after a time. I'd drink this Monkey Booze whenever I tired of training. And I'd listen to the howl of my partner's whistling finger while I drank. It was from his unique ring... Whistling through that ring... Would fill the valley with a somber melody. Strangely enough, I enjoyed that sound. I listened to it so often." 

  • After giving him the Dragonspring Sake:
    • "('I brought sake.') Hooh...Dragonspring...? That's fine quality sake. I'll take it then. Now that really hits the spot...There's nothing quite like this. I often drank this with Dogen...Emma would keep our cups filled. ('Have you known Lady Emma for long?') That was a long time ago...I found her on a battlefield. ('...a battlefield.') She crept up slowly towards me, her eyes fixed, unwavering on the rice I held in my hand. It became too much to bear, so I gave it to her. Then she just started following me. After that...........Well a while later...Ashina became a dangerous place for the both of us. Around then Dogen adopted her as his daughter. I suppose it didn't really matter where she ended up. One thing's for sure, she's happier for the fact she wasn't raised by a shinobi." 

  • After presenting the Slender Finger:
    • "What's that you have there...Where did you get that finger? ('The Guardian Ape of the Sunkey Valley...I found it in his belly') ... I see... To think it was in the belly of an Ape... Let me see it. I'll fix it to your prosthetic arm."

 

  • Sculptor offers additional dialogue after upgrading the Finger Whistle to the Malcontent:
    "Listen...that finger whistle I've attached to your arm. I'm sure it will play a somber but enjoyable tune. Make sure to use it well."

 

The Sculptor Story & Lore

  • The Sculptor is referred to as "Sekijo," by Hanbei The Undying—a name that was likely given to him in much the same way Isshin of Ashina gave Sekiro his name. The Sculptor is also known as Orangutan (猩々, Shoujou), just as Sekiro is known as Wolf (狼, Ookami); Isshin gives Sekiro his name by condensing One-armed Wolf (隻腕の狼, Sekiwan no Ookami) into Sekiro (隻狼, Sekirou), while Hanbei does the same for the Sculptor, who is also one-armed, by condensing One-armed Orangutan (隻腕の猩々, Sekiwan no Shoujou) into Sekijo (隻猩, Sekijou).

  • Promotional material for the game regarding the Shinobi Prosthetic listed his title as Busshi of Aredera (荒れ寺の仏師, Aredera no Busshi) which means Sculptor of the Dilapidated Temple. Busshi refers specifically to a sculptor of Buddha statues.

  • According the description of the Shinobi Axe of the Monkey, his favored weapon was the black iron axe which would later become the Loaded Axe  prosthetic tool. "Bounding Monkey of the Sunken Valley" being apparently another nickname for Sculptor back when he was the Shinobi Orangutan. 

  • Reading the descriptions of the following items: Slender Finger, Malcontent's Ring, and Malcontent reveal that the Sculptor's partner during the time he trained in the Sunken Valley was a woman who (most likely) went by the codename "Kingfisher,". Though her ultimate fate is known (the Slender Finger is "found in the belly of the Guardian Ape," as per its description), both how this occurred and why the two shinobi went their separate ways (as the Sculptor expresses surprise upon you returning the finger to him), as well as the full extent of their relationship, is still unknown.
    • There is a slight quibble with whether or not "Kingfisher," was male or female, as the dialogue spoken by the Sculptor when you give him Monkey Booze refers to his partner as male ("His ring,") while all other mention of Kingfisher refers to him/her as female. In the Japanese dialogue, the Sculptor refers to his partner by ayatsu, (あやつ), which is gender neutral. The slender finger is expressly referred to as the finger of a young woman in both the English and Japanese examine texts. The ring found later on is then referred to as fitting a slender finger, further indicating that his partner was the woman to whom the finger belonged. This seems to simply be an error in translation, and the Monkey Booze dialogue should read 'her ring'. (The dialogue was corrected in Version 1.03)

  • According to dialogue with both Emma and from the Sculptor, we can deduce that it was explicitly the Sculptor who saved a young, orphaned Emma from starvation when the two met during the aftermath of a battle.

  • When afflicted by Dragonrot, Sculptor is adamant about being unable to die from it, hinting that he is aware of his humanity slipping away from him.

  • The Sculptor's byname "Bounding Monkey" (飛猿,  Tobi-zaru or Tobi-saru) may come from "Monkey-like Bounding Man" (猿飛, Saru-tobi), the epithet of Sasuke, a legendary shinobi in the Japanese folklore.
  • The Sculptor's missing left arm along with the Shinobi Prosthetic of Sekiro seems to stem from multiple factors.
    • The zen buddhism is plentiful of the stories of one-hand monks.
      • Dazu Huike, the second grand-patriarch of zen, is said to cut his own arm in order to show his sincerity to the first patriarch of zen, Bodhidharma
    • It is a clear tribute to Gao from the Phoenix chapter of the manga Phoenix, the master-piece of Osamu Tezuka. He was once a brutal bandit but after his left-hand being cut, he regretted his own sins and became a famed sculptor. In another chapter of the same manga, he reappears as Kurama-tengu, a legendary shinobi-ascetic, who taught martial arts and battle tactics to Minamoto-no "Kuro" Yoshitsune.

Sculptor Notes & Trivia

  • Voiced by: Brian Cummings (English), Jin Urayama (Japanese). Jin Urayama is also known for voicing the character Cervantes de Leon in many titles of the Soulcalibur fighting game series.
  • Oddly enough, even though the Sculptor has left when the option becomes available: it still costs you money to upgrade your gear using the workbench in the Dilapidated Temple even though you're the only one working on said gear.

Had to deal with my daughter alone (thank God, my parents helped), carry parcels to my spouse who thundered in the detention center, trying to find loopholes with a lawyer and release her at least under a subscription. Plus, I had to endure the daily antics of her geek son, Seryozha. Rick Harris worked at the church for six months.

He presented himself as a transitional start-up and interested in religion.
