During the first phase of the fight, Kaine will simply be immobile while shooting out orb projectiles in all directions using the two anchor points latched onto her. It is recommended to just avoid the orbs or destroy them during this phase, though you can attack Kaine using your weapon to damage her until a cutscene plays.
Kaine will now start to engage you in a real fight. Her move set consists of a combination of her attacks when you fought her during your first meeting and when she was possessed in the Lost Shrine (including firing orb projectiles in new patterns). It is recommended to equip a spear and frequently and use dash attacks to try and knock her down while giving you good mobility to evade her strikes. Unload on her before she gets up and use dash attacks to floor her again. Repeat the process and heal when you need to. She will eventually go down and a cutscene will play.
