Found first at the end of Route 666, the Braves act exactly like smaller, faster Beloved. Given the chance, they can combine into a single, much faster Beloved angel. However, if this occurs, the same rules apply. The Beloved can be attacked in it's back to weaken it, just like any other.The Braves can be stopped from combining by killing them quickly. Since they have one third the health of a Beloved, they aren't hard to take down. To be safe, bring them each down to a small bit of health before picking them off. They carry large, spear-axe combination weapons. When used, they act just like the Beloved's axe. See: Bayonetta
