The Unkindled Apprentice is a very aggressive opponent. He awaits on the roof of the ruined chapel in the Profaned Capital. Due to the area's layout, he will most likely approach from the rear while the player is making their way upstairs; this usually gives him the opportunity to start the battle by casting one of his sorceries. His repertoire includes variations of Soul Spear, Soul Greatsword, and Homing Soulmass.
He also comes armed with a Gargoyle Flame Hammer and will quickly switch between casting spells and this weapon, frequently holding it with both hands for increased damage. His melee attacks are very similar to that of Havel's, and thus he is often vulnerable after finishing a combo. Care must be taken, though, as he can quickly inflict a considerable amount of damage in return; more so if the player is taken off-balance due to the different tactics used for dealing with a sorcerer and a warrior.
Fortunately, he is not very resilient and is staggered easily, which allows the player to deal many consecutive hits.
