Strategy 1 (Melee)

You can handle this first boss by dodging his attacks to the side and then getting a few hits in when he whiffs.. The axe is effective here early on because it is a high damage dealer.

In his second phase, wait for him to run towards you and then dodge to the side, get a few attacks in and then move back. Keep repeating this formula until he is down.

Yokai Lore / History

Thomas Derrick was an English executioner from the Elizabethan era. In English history, executioner was not a commonly chosen career path because of the risk of friends and families of the deceased knowing who the executioner was and where to find him. Executioners were sometimes coerced into the role. Derrick in particular had been convicted of rape but was pardoned by the Earl of Essex (clearing him of the death penalty) on the condition that he became an executioner at Tyburn. 
 
Derrick executed more than 3,000 people in his career, including his pardoner, the Earl of Essex, in 1601. Derrick devised a beam with a topping lift and pulleys for his hangings, instead of the old-fashioned rope over the beam method. Duly, the word derrick became an eponym for the frame from which the hangman's noose was supported and through that usage (by analogy) to modern day cranes.

      This guy can also be found in the epilogue mission, 'the queens eyes' as a hidden boss. Worth noting as defeating him in that mission gives you an achievement.
