Catarina, Master of Undeath


Catarina, Master of Undeath is the boss and leader of the Immortal Syndicate. She resides in the Masterminds Lair.

Boss Fight

The fight starts off with Catarina doing her basic attacks in a crypt-like area. Partway through the fight she will summon unique zombies. When she reaches low hp she will leave and open a portal to her safe house which will lead to the main arena.

The main arena is a square with four totems in the corners and a sculpture in the center. Catarina will continue to use her attacks from the first phase; after she reaches a certain amount of hp she will become immune and will release of the the syndicate leaders to attack you. Once the leader is dead she will enter the Black Flame Phase. During the black flame phase she will gain new attacks and the sculpture in the center will begin releasing waves of energy dealing damage in one direction. After more damage is dealt she will become immune to damage and in order to end the Black Flame phase the player must stand near one of the totems in the corner. There will be an arrow under the player pointing toward the appropriate totem and the totem will be glowing.

Catarina will then return to her regular state and the process will repeat. Once all syndicate leaders are dead Catarina can be defeated.
