Grave Wardens are servants of the Church of the Deep and are tasked with disposing of the ever-rising corpses that infest the Cathedral's grounds. They resemble ragged skeletal humanoids that wield Warden Twinblades in combat.
- The first warden is found guarding the open mausoleum area located past the cemetery infested with Reanimated Corpses.
- A pair of Wardens patrol a small terrace located after traversing the first rooftop area, on the corner just before reaching the backside of the cathedral.
- Two are found near the beginning of the level, patrolling the area around the broken Lordvessel where the Ashen Estus Flask is found in the Cemetery of Ash.
Cathedral Grave Wardens have moderate health and are surprisingly durable despite their frail appearance. They are agile and aggressive fighters that will close the distance quickly with either a lunging stab or twirling slash; it is advisable to roll forward to evade this, as they can clip the player if they evade to the side. Their attacks cause rapid Bleed build-up and they will drain stamina very quickly if blocked.
Grave Wardens are very vulnerable to backstabs after they have finished their combos, as long as the player moves behind them whilst they are in the attack animation, as they will quickly reposition themselves. They are also very weak to fire damage and will flail wildly if ignited.
