"It's clear now why she hunts us, Kuro is just protecting her last child!" - Sein to Ori after escaping Kuro.

Kuro's Egg, also known as Ku, is the unborn child of Kuro, and her only remaining offspring.


Kuro's Egg has the familiar appearance of a normal bird's egg, being ovular in shape but uncommonly huge in size. In fact, it is bigger than most of the characters in the game, save Kuro herself. The cream-colored shell of Kuro's Egg is speckled with dots.



Warning! Spoilers ahead.

After Ori flees from the Forlorn Ruins, they eventually find themselves at Kuro's Nest, where they discover her egg. In a short cutscene, Kuro's actions in Ori and the Blind Forest are explained, proving she was only trying to protect her unborn owlet from the fate its siblings endured.

For most of the time afterwards the egg remains absent, until the ending sequence when Kuro realizes the damage she caused may result in her egg being burned alive in the fire. The flames of the burning forest are spreading and creeping quickly toward Kuro's Egg, when its mother makes the decision to revive the smoldering Spirit Tree.

Once light has been restored to Nibel, Kuro's Egg is seen one last time. Naru enters the cave she and Ori once shared, and the camera pans to reveal the egg nestled cozily within. Naru smiles as a small crack develops on the shell, just before the game ends. The Owlet that would supposedly be in the egg is the Owl present in images of Ori and the Will of the Wisps.

Ori and the Will of the Wisps

Main article: Ku

When Ku (Kuro's child) was born, Naru, Gumo and Ori came to see her. For some time they were living together in Swallow's Nest. With time passing, "the sky called to her", as the Spirit Tree says. Unfortunately, Ku couldn't leave Swallow's Nest due to her wing being disabled. Ori came up with a solution: with Gumo's help, they attached Kuro's Feather to Ku's wing, thus making her able to fly. After that, Ori and Ku left their home and flew to Niwen, a forest across the water. Suddenly, a storm arrived, and the two got separated.
