Lore

Friede was the first Ash to enter the painting, but together with the good Father, they chose rot over fire.

— Description of the Soul of Sister Friede

After renouncing everything, Friede discovered a people that she wished to protect, and assumed the precise form that they yearned for.

— Description of the Ordained Set

A flail used by the bulbous Father of the Painted World to shred his own skin, producing blood to appease the flame.

Ariandel, being the restorer of the Painted World, knew that it was painted in blood, and only blood could protect the secret.

Notes

Bugs

  • During the first phase, when she is charging up the stealth attack, if you hit her with an arrow (or bolt), you will stagger her and thus prevent her from performing the attack. Instead of changing her action, however, she will just keep trying to perform the stealth attack over and over. If you land only one shot at a time and stay outside melee range, you can maintain this loop for about 30 seconds, because apparently her AI instructs her to enter stealth every 30 seconds or so. Therefore, at the end of this duration, she will fall back, simply to enter stealth again and repeat the cycle. If you use a greatbow, you will knock her down, and this will reset her behavior to normal. Hitting her with a Kukri also staggers her, but it would seem this counts as any melee attack as far as this issue is concerned, and she will continue as normal.
  • Soldering Iron may affect her AI during the second phase, causing frequent dashes.
  • During the Phase Transition to Phase 2, almost all furniture in the room is destroyed except for a table by where Ariandel starts.

Legacy

  • App 1.09, Regulation 1.23
    • Fixed an issue where it becomes impossible to progress further in the game because, Friede occasionally does not respawn as Blackflame Friede.
