Residents of Dirtmouth have long pondered on a mysterious stone door at the base of the Crystal Peak beyond their graveyard. Suggestions were once made to forcibly open the door, but awful groaning from within kept the townsfolk at bay.
She was asleep there for a very long time but was woken up when the Knight entered. She notes that the land is now covered with the stains of regret, and wonders what would happen to her should she fall asleep again.
Jiji makes mention of her "masters" whom she also shares with Steel Soul Jinn. These masters oppose order and have minds that are stated to be other. They are described as being different from Jinn and more complete.
Confessor Jiji is found behind a locked door in Dirtmouth that requires a Simple Key to open.
In return for Rancid Eggs, Jiji offers a service to summon the Knight's Shade from wherever it spawned in the world. Upon summoning the Shade, it must still be defeated to restore the Knight's SOUL meter and lost Geo. This service is very useful if the Shade is in a difficult to reach area or has a lot of Geo on it.
Welcome, small intruder. I've been sound asleep in here for some time...Some, time?
Ah. Yes. Yes. Well now you've gone and woken me up. It's no matter, I suppose. I might even be able to help you.
I am Jiji, and if you have found your way into my chamber you must need my help.
You see, sometimes we leave our regrets behind in the world, like black stains.
If we don't deal with these regrets, hope starts to drain from us.
Do you have regrets of your own, little one? Let me peer into you for a moment...
Ah, hello again. How have you been faring? Have you come to me because of your regrets? Let me peer into you...
How long I must have slept. This land is so much darker now, so thick with the stains of regret.
Even the air is murkier. If I sleep again, will the darkness creep in here and swallow me whole?
As a service, I can return your regrets to you, so they can be dealt with. You want that, yes?
Ah, but I am very hungry. Perhaps you'd be willing to part with a little of your food? Sleep for as long as I have and you build up quite the appetite.
I can return your regrets to you, if you share your delicious food with me.
Yes, I can see the regrets you've left behind.
Generic location: A black stain hidden away in the darkness below us.
The Abyss and Ancient Basin: Only faintly though... a black stain deep below the world, surrounded by darkness. Almost a part of it...
Ancestral Mound: A dark stain in an ancestral mound... a place of strange worships.
City of Tears: A dark stain in the heart of the kingdom's capital. Rain can not wash it away.
Hmm. A fierce host has settled nearby. Did you summon them? I find their smell... unsettling.
Theirs is a scent of distant places, unfamiliar even to me.
They have a strange look to them, gaudy and intimidating. Perhaps you suspect they hide their true appearance? You'd be right. They favour projection over truth, shrouding themselves in forms dreamed.
Best be careful. Assisting them might benefit you, but who knows what suffering it may cause?
Confessor Jiji is located on the very east side of Dirtmouth, within a cave that requires a Simple Key to open.
Performing a ritual and summoning a Shade will blow out all the candles in Jiji's cave.
Having Jiji summon the Shade, killing it, and instantly leaving the room results in the SOUL meter remaining broken, though the Knight recovers their lost Geo and Jiji's dialogue is the same as when there is no lingering Shade.

↑Jiji Dream Nail dialogue: "How long I must have slept. This land is so much darker now, so thick with stains of regret. Even the air is murkier. If I sleep again, will the darkness creep in here and swallow me whole?"
↑Jiji after acquiring Void Heart: "My masters would be impressed... Rare it is for one to come to terms with their regrets so completely, yet you seem to have managed it. What darkness must one wade through to achieve such a thing?"
↑Steel Soul Jinn: "Jinn's masters are other... minds other... Not order. Not order, they seek."
↑Steel Soul Jinn after acquiring Void Heart: "Jinn misjudged... The It is not inferior. Perhaps... different? Different to Jinn. More complete? Different... like masters?"
