Mergo’s Chief Attendants are disproportionately large women, with large, fat looking armor and a grotesque metal mask, complete with a veil of chainmail.
On their hands they use an extremely large and thick axe and on the other, a chain whip. Both weapons deal Rapid Poison.
They are often found amongst groups of Mergo's Attendants.
The key to the fight is to always dispatch the Mergo's Attendants that accompany the Chief Attendant. However, if there are crossbow-wielding Attendants, then the wise decision is to isolate the Chief Attendant herself and use the environment to stay out of their lines of sight.
A good strategy to use against them is to parry them when the use their chain attack, then use a Visceral Attack.
The Chief Attendants are extremely hard hitting, and if they trigger Rapid Poison at players with half health, this usually results in their deaths.
- One of the very few enemies that deals Rapid Poison.
- Their female and "voluptuous" physique, along with their use of a very long bladed axe, seems to be in reference to a tradition started in every Dark Souls whereas a there was a hostile NPC that would resemble a fat masked woman, pursuing players with a giant meat cleaver.
- This tradition was started when one of the developers would invade players in Dark Souls, dressed as the Meat Cleaver-wielding Black Phantom in Demons Souls.
