Isabella the Mad, also known as the Unkindled Butcher, is a non-respawning enemy in Dark Souls III.


An unkindled found beneath the path behind the first Corvian Storyteller. She wears a Worker Hat along with the Master's Set and wields a Butcher Knife.


Found in a cave below a hill in the Road of Sacrifices. From the Road of Sacrifices bonfire, follow the path toward a stone bridge and from there head to the left and down a narrow path that leads into the cave.


Isabella fights similarly to Maneater Mildred from Dark Souls and will often use the Butcher Knife's two-handed heavy slam attack that leaves her exposed. Her swings are somewhat slow but do high damage and will easily break the player's guard if the attacks are blocked, so it is advisable to evade them unless using a high stability shield.

She can use sharpen which will further increase her damage and heal a small amount of HP with each hit; however, this leaves her completely exposed for the duration of the buffing animation.

She will also start throwing Dung Pies if the player remains at range for too long, which inflict Toxic status.

Although risky, a quick way to defeat Isabella is to knock her off the path where she resides. She will occasionally fall off by herself if the player fights her close to the edge.
