Cathedral Evangelist Combat Information

  • The color of the glow from her spellbook shows which spell is coming, pale yellow for Gnaw and smoldering orange for the fiery grab attack.
  • The mace is very dangerous if it connects, but slow and leaves openings. The bible thump comes out much faster and is mostly used in self-defense to interrupt your combo.
  • Deals Strike Damage, Standard Damage, Fire Damage and Dark Damage. May also cause Blood Loss.
  • When using grapple attack or casting Gnaw, she can easily be backstabbed.
  • Weak to FrostbiteBleed and Thrust Damage.
  • Resistant to Strike Damage and Fire Damage.
  • Mace and book attacks can be parried and followed up with a riposte.
  • Evangelists have more poise than most enemies, raising the appeal of using heavy weapons in melee combat.
  • One of the only enemies to call out their attacks with spoken words, as introduced in Bloodborne. Specifically the immolation hug, the rest is just mad cackling and mumbling.
    • "Oh, child... [FWOOSH] ...come to me!"
    • "I'll cleanse the- [FWOOSH] ...bastard's curse!"


Cathedral Evangelist Notes & Trivia

  • The Cathedral Evangelist bears a striking resemblance to the Fat Officials from Demon's Souls.
  • Best taken out at range - grapple attack often triggers during your combos, and mace has powerful knockdown/stamina effect.
  • Knocking her down very close to the player will occasionally knock down the player as well, dealing very little damage and causing a long wakeup animation.
  • On her belt are several real-life torture implements, including a pear of anguish Undead_Settlement_Enemies_Concept_Art_Evangelist_Peasant_Thumb2.
  • The Evangelist in front of the big tree in Undead Settlement, where the Estus Shard is located, is praying with her hat off.
  • The Evangelists are voiced by Clare Corbett, who also voiced many other characters in the Souls games, such as Saint Astraea, Gwynevere, Priscilla, and Alsanna.
