A giant, aggressive knight that "pursues" the player. Can be encountered in multiple locations -- see The Pursuer. The Pursuer can be first encountered on the large terrace outside the Cardinal Tower bonfire. The Pursuer then moves to a later location: behind a fog gate at the top of the Forest of Fallen Giants, and this is where most players first face The Pursuer in a boss fight. It's other appearances are not explicit boss fights, and do not grant as many souls as the first encounter. In NG+, the Pursuer will appear more regularly.
