You must have the Curse Breaking Arrowtip to initiate the fight ("The Orphaned Lion" rumor). This fight consists of two Protection Demons, each with their own pattern. The left Demon follows "a", right follows "b".
- This boss runs on the same principles as Azami (Enemy)'s boss fight, and thus can be exploited along the same principles. The boss will inflict a crippling INT debuff, rendering magic attackers and healers worthless if hit, before following up with loads of slash attacks. Mana will severely cut down the damage of their attacks with Mephistopheles, as will Saki (Another Style) with Jotunn Effect.
- Keep your healers on the backline until after turn 1 of each cycle to avoid their healing being dropped to two or even one digit levels due to the INT debuff the boss will apply. Morgana, however, can be safely left out front due to his fixed healing not scaling off of any stat.
- Bertrand, carrying his Aegis Defender, can indefinitely tank the attacks from both demons provided you have some sort of PWR debuff (in addition to that provided by Overbear) and a source of healing (Guardian Lance provides him with MP). If you have him, just add Morgana and Mana as debuffers and healers and all you need are some water element damage dealers.
- Foran (Another Style) is an extremely powerful option for this fight. The healing on her Pierce from Heaven is fixed like Morgana's, circumventing the INT debuff, and her kit brings powerful water DPS for either a Water Zone or her own Pierce Zone.
