During her time as Hakumen's jailer, Sumako had a vision of a son she would have who would be the Chosen Wielder of the Beast Spear. She was allowed freedom for 2 years, during which she met and married Shigure and she had his son. Sadly, she was forced to leave them and she return to her sacred duty that she never got to be with her son.
