Kill all the enemies in the area and collect the Prison Cell keys from the ground. You will need them to free Gerlinde.
Use the ladder next to Gerlinde’s Prison Cell to head up the area. Follow the path to the left and use the lever at the end to call the elevator upwards. Take the elevator down to meet Damarose at the end.

How to defeat Damarose The Marked
Damarose the Marked only has a single phase of the fight. So, it is quite easy to defeat her if you have the recommended items in your inventory. Damarose starts the fight aggressively. She possesses four attacks in her arsenal. These attacks include Cleaver Strike, Imbued Cleaver melee attack, Flamethrower, and Fire Projectiles.
Damarose, the Marked will use her Cleaver to swing at you. This is a melee attack, so you just need to dodge or block the attack as it comes. When you see Damarose sprinting at you to go for the swing, move away in the opposite direction.
Imbued Cleaver melee attack
After failing to strike you with the standard Cleaver strikes, Damarose imbues the Cleaver with fire. This will deal enough damage to knock your HP down to half if it connects. So, put some distance between yourself and the boss. The best strategy is to block this attack when Damarose lunges at you.
The flamethrower is the boss’s secondary attack. She will use this attack during the final stages of the fight. She throws a stream of fire from her palm that persists for a couple of seconds. The best way to prevent getting damaged is by side-stepping out of the way.
Damarose will use a fire projectile as her last attack. She summons a few marks above her, turning into massive fireballs aimed at you. The worst part about them is that they expand over time. So the best way to avoid them is by keeping a safe distance from the boss as soon as you see the marks appearing above her.
The biggest weakness of Damarose the Marked in Lords of the Fallen is that she can’t attack you when you are on her side. You can use this window of opportunity to move to her side after she performs her attack and follow up by using your weapons to defeat her.
Since she has a lot of fire attacks, make sure that you bring Burn Cure, Burn Resistance Balm, and Fire Wards for protection.
