This chapter presents the map of the fourth mission of the Courtyard - A Bewitching Predator. Even though this dungeon is the largest one in the Courtyard, it allows the player to skip a large portion of it when targeting the boss alone. You need to reach the boss room (point 7 on the map) and defeat the Countess to complete this mission.
Start by heading to the room with the yellow key (point 2 on the map). From there go through the yellow gate (point 3 on the map) and go all the way to the bottom (point 4 on the map) to collect a red key. Now you can go through two different routes - either through the "left" red gate (point 5 on the map) or through the "right" red gate (point 6 on the map). It doesn't change anything, as both lead to a room with the boss, Countess (point 7 on the map).
Once you take down the boss, you can either finish the mission, or collect the green key from the boss room. If you've decided for the latter, pick up the key and head back to the bottom of the map. Go through the green gate (point 8 on the map) and collect the blue key (point 9 on the map). The mini-boss encounter with the Crocodilian (point 10 on the map) can be skipped. Now head through the blue gate (point 11 on the map) and collect treasures hidden inside of the final corridor.
