Acquiring the Hunter's Journal allows The Knight to acquire additional notes on an encountered and defeated enemy such as bits and pieces of lore, information on how to deal with the enemy, and information on The Hunter.


Forgotten champion of the Colosseum, drawn away by strange obsessions.
This odd creature is unaffected by and unaware of the disease drifting through the caverns. Its madness is all its own.

      Some trivia I found out:
      * If you cannot defeat it, you can lure out the shade before it gets locked into the arena and then quit to menu to return to a bench.
      But what I really wanted to know, coming to this page, was whether she regains her health every time she gets away. Because my nail is only upgraded without ore, and I only have dash and mantis claw, have 6 masks and very few charms. So this fight seems very hard at this level, and I came here to just know if I should keep trying or if I was reaching. I saw a few other talking about attempting it, and they were talking about using charms, spells and abilities that I don't have.
