For two episodes (12 and 14) Minukelsus will replace Gretchen as your companion, and he follows the same basic rules except if you dash with while carrying him, he will be dropped. He has four attacks that replace Gretchen's Witchcraft. + will have him throw an explosive flask at either the targetted enemy or the nearest enemy to him. + will have him run forwards and wildly swing his sword until either a certain amount of time has passed or there are no enemies alive. + will make him do one powerful thrust with short range that will instantly kill weaker enemies, do large damage to strong enemies, instantly destroy the armour on Wights, and instantly destroy a Shield Wight's shield. + will make him throw a flask that upon contact with an enemy will freeze any non-boss enemy unless they have a shield and frozen enemies (with the exception of Gold Wights) can be killed with a single hit from either Heinrich or Minukelsus. Frozen Gold Wights on easier difficulties can be killed instantly with a + from Minukelsus. On higher difficulties, this will simply do a large amount of damage to a Gold Wight.
