The Drudge Lord is an enemy in Blood II: The Chosen. It is the second stage of metamorphosis between a Soul Drudge and Drudge Priest. In this phase, the Bone Leech has evolved within the body of the victim, growing large, hooked limbs that pierce through the flesh of its host from the inside. This allows it better control of its body. It also welds metal plates to its chest to endure more damage. At this point, the victim is no longer aware of its surroundings, too incapacitated to react, or dead.
Although the manual states that at this stage of evolution, the creature is coordinated enough to handle firearms, no Drudge Lord has been seen doing this. Instead, they attack with hooked limbs or breathing fireballs. It will not discriminate enemies and will attack any living creature, including Cabal.
The Drudge Lord is hostile and ill-tempered, quick to attack, and has little fear. Due to this, they are not typically seen with other Drudge Lords or Drudge Priests, but can be seen with other Soul Drudges, who act as servants.
