The Executioner Majini is no slouch, and while you can simply flee for the remainder of combat, the reward for taking him out is pretty substantial, so give it a shot if you're feeling up to the challenge.
It's difficult to take him down using your starting equipment, but grenades followed by a melee are effective. Remember to also make use of the damaging items littered around the marketplace!
Be extremely cautious around him as his axe swing can reduce your life gauge in an instant. He does have a slight startup time when swinging however, and you should have plenty of time to get out the way. The most important thing is to always keep him in your sights, and don't rush!
Keep poking and you'll be able to avenge Fisher!
