Dear appear infrequently throughout the game, but when they do they are usually accompanied by a small host of Decorations. They are relatively passive, and for the most part harmless compared to most other angels.Dear: Larger and stronger than Decorations, Dear still have the most basic of combat skills when compared to other angels. They will charge up with energy before performing any of their offensive skills, giving a plenty of warning to the player before they make their move. Their first attack is a simple spinning headbutt rush towards Bayonetta that travels a very limited distance at a slow pace. Their second attack pulls in energy and then folds the alabaster layer over their face away to launch an orb of energy at Bayonetta, this attack causes minimal damage, and the orb can be hit during witch time to knock it back towards the direction it came from. Their final skill is the ability to summon a small wreath of Decorations, which they can use to generation a large white shield around him. The Decorations and the shield will block incoming attacks for the Dear. During this state the orbs of energy that the Dear launches cause much more damage, though are still easily dealt with due to their long visual cue of gathering energy. When becoming desperate the Decorations will swarm around Bayonetta and attack her. Decorations: Even more basic than Dear, Decorations have only two basic attacks on their own, a simple spin headbutt attack similar to the one Dear uses, only being weaker and traveling even shorter range, and an attack that causes them to latch onto Bayonetta's head and bite her. Pushing the Joystick back and forth repeatedly will free her from the Decoration's bites. See: Bayonetta
