Description and strategy
These human henchmen of the Count are some of the easiest enemies in the game. Their scythe attacks are extremely damaging, but also fairly slow and very easy to avoid. They've got a decent running speed, but they're not agile and can't dodge around or leap at you from several feet away like many undead enemies can. It also takes them slightly longer to recover from a hit than an undead enemy would. This means you can run up to them and pummel them with your fists or your cane sword, and it becomes impossible for them to hit back because they're being stunned by your constant attacks. Because of their easiness, Gy
psy henchmen are somewhat uncommon, and you're much more likely to encounter Ghouls, Desmodiij, or Devil Dogs as random enemies. Gypsy henchmen are unaffected by holy weapons such as the crucifix or chalice, but that hardly matters since it's so easy to pummel them the old fashioned way. The only danger these guys pose is if you face them grouped together with other enemies, as they can blitz you from the side and kill you with 1 or 2 hits while you're busy fighting the other guys. For this reason, you should always target them first when fighting them in a group.
