|Automatically appears at your ship after sending 8 spirits to the Everdoor
Lily is another late-game spirit that will be joining your ship as a passenger. She also represents the ending of the game. As a unique spirit, you will need to send at least 8 other spirits to the Everdoor before Lily automatically shows up onboard.
Our guide will walk you through her onboarding process and full quest line.
How To Get Lily
Unlike other spirits, you can’t find Lily in any of the islands in order to recruit her. Rather, she automatically appears after these two conditions:
- You’ve sent off 8 spirits to the Everdoor
- Your ship is fully-upgraded
Note: You may also need to already have recruited Buck on your ship. However, he’s the only spirit that accompanies Stella until the end.
At that point, a number of flowers will start growing outside Stella’s cabin on the ship. Interact with these flowers, and they will flock together during night-time to become a special spirit: Lily.
Talking to Lily reveals that she is actually the spirit manifestation of Stella’s younger sister, and that she hasn’t passed on yet.
Lily’s Complete Quest Line
Appearing as an end-game spirit, Lily will also reveal that you can only finish the game once her requests have been fulfilled. Here they are:
For her first request, Lily will ask you to visit and interact with the Hummingberg Shrine at night, or any of the three time periods after the sun has gone down.
During this, Lily will tell you all about Stella’s story and life on Earth, including her as a baby.
Striking Out On My Own
For the second request, Lily will ask you to visit and interact with the shrine at Furogawa at night.
Here, Lily will tell you all about the travels that Stella did while abroad, including her trip to Japan, and the small sour ending to these trips (after Stella finds out her dad has contracted a deadly illness).
For her third request, you will need to do the same thing in the Oxbury Shrine.
Lily will continue to talk about Stella’s life. This time, it will be about Stella’s job as an end-of-life caretaker at a hospital.
Finally, Lily will ask to visit the Greymist Peaks Shrine and interact with it at night.
Here, you’ll learn all about how Stella had to deliver her diagnosis to Lily and their mother.
After this, the game automatically unlocks its last request “Stella’s Last Voyage.”
Note: End game spoilers ahead!
Ending the Game
Once you’ve finished all of Lily’s requests, the last request “Stella’s Last Voyage,” will unlock.
During this request, you’ll be able to hug all of the spirits you’ve previously taken to the Everdoor before passing through it yourself with Daffodil and “ending” the game.
While Stella goes through the Everdoor, Lily’s butterflies will accompany you, signifying that she’s with you until the end.
Do note that as long as Lily appears on the ship, you can technically already finish the game.
This means that even if there are still other spirits with unfinished quest lines on your ship, you can still pass through the Everdoor.
However, starting the game again will just put you back to just before “Stella’s Last Voyage,” should you wish to send off all the other spirits first.
Unlike other spirits in the game, Lily actually hasn’t passed away yet. Instead, she’s the spirit manifestation of Lily talking to Stella during the final moments of her life while she’s in a coma.
This means that:
- Lily doesn’t need to be fed
- Lily doesn’t come with a minigame
- Lily only comes out at night
- Lily doesn’t have a Spirit House
What’s more, the appearance of Lily also means that you can start sailing at night, since all of her requests have to be done after sundown. Lily also doesn’t speak, although Stella interacts with her by giving her a hug.
Note: You can see Lily in the real world from the memories that Hades shows you. Stella also learns of Buck through Lily, as he is her friend.
