Standing slightly taller than the player due to the large snake head and with a scaly, humanoid body, Serpent Soldiers wield Man-serpent Greatswords and carry an unnamed shield.
They're rather slow, especially when circling around them, and can be backstabbed and parried. Landing several consecutive attacks in a row will stagger them for a short amount of time, so a quick lightning weapon (e.g. a spear) can be a good choice.
Some of them can be led into arrow traps to heavily damage or kill them. However, they do not set off the traps themselves by walking over them, meaning the player must set them off when the enemy is between the trap and the player to avoid the damage.

- Serpent Soldiers bear similarities to a race of snake-headed enemies called the Widda from King's Field: The Ancient City.
