Playthrough the story up to the moment you’ve collected the Lotus of the Palace (guarded by the Guardian Monkey). Once you have this item you will notice that Ashina Castle is no longer accessible. You will need to access Ashina Castle via the Abandoned Dungeon Entrance idol. Once you reach the top of the tower (where you fought Genochiro) a cutscene will trigger featuring OWL and Kuro. At this point you will need to decide which ending you are going for as OWL presents you with a couple of options:

  • Obey the Iron Code, forsake Kuro (Shura Ending).
  • Break the Iron Code, stay loyal to Kuro (Immortal Severance ending, Purification ending, Return ending).

If you select Break the Iron Code, stay loyal to Kuro you will have to fight OWL. Once you beat OWL the story will progress and you will not have to do anything else. Upon defeat of the final boss, you will unlock the Immortal Severance ending and achievement.

That’s all there is to unlocking the Immortal Severance ending. Just betray your father you heartless animal.
