Ahhh Le'mer, you could not know of tragedy as complete as che's, true lovers stripped apart, two worlds that could not meet.

The Traitors' Child is a spirit in Hollow Knight. She is involved in a quest to deliver a Delicate Flower to her grave.


The Traitors' Child was a mantis who was the daughter of the Traitor Lord.[2] She and Ze'mer, a member of the Five Great Knights, were lovers.[3] However, the other mantises did not approve of their union due to Ze'mer being an outsider.[4]

For unknown reasons, the Traitors' Child eventually died. She was buried in the Queen's Gardens.

In-game events

The lover of the Traitors' Child, Ze'mer, retreated to her house in the Resting Grounds and became known as the Grey Mourner. She gives the Knight a quest to deliver a Delicate Flower to the grave of the Traitors' Child as a final gift to her lover.[3] This flower has to be delivered without taking any damage.

Once the flower has been brought to her grave, the Traitors' Child appears as a spirit above her grave and bows to the Knight. She disappears after this and her spirit is not seen again.
