We study holomorphic fixed point germs in two complex variables that are tangent to the identity and have a degenerate characteristic direction. We show that if that characteristic direction is also a characteristic direction for higher degree terms, is non-degenerate for a higher degree term, and satisfies some additional properties, then there is a domain of attraction on which points converge to the origin along that direction.
