Gwyn's Arkangel or Gwynevere's Arkangel (alternatively, if you want a closer to lore character, you could be Gertrude's Arkangel) is a build inspired by the Ascended Winged Knights. It's possible they are a Fallen or Twisted version, similar to Deacons of the Deep or Aldritch Faithful, who we see some have become fat with gluttony. The Arkangel's, on the other hand, helped usher in Gwyn's Ash but have since lost their wings. On the battlefield they were highly trained and specialized support personnel. They had the ability to hop around, perching on sniper spots to take bow shots at enemies while keeping an eye on friendly troops to provide a quick heal. When they land next to an ally, the can use The Way of the White Corona or a few lightning strikes to push enemy troops back and allow room for a heal. And every Arkangels handy trick while out of direct combat, Replenishment.
Because the Arkangels are so specialized, they can play with any number of miracles available. Other favorites of the Arkangel include Divine Pillars of Light and Tears of Denial. Sometimes, against larger enemies, the Arkangels like to play dirty with Dorhys' Gnawing or Lifehunt Scythe.
For more aggressive Arkangels, Lightning stake is a favorite, as their high dexterity allows them maneuverability. In this case, the Carthus Milkring may be favored over the Sun Princess Ring. While Arkangels prefer to engage and disengage, as to establish a balance between ranged miracle attacks and bow attacks, when things get up close and personal their long, sharp scythes are quick enough to hack and slash while rolling into a backstab or seeking a parry riposte using their Blessed Mail Breakers. Some Arkangels even have the experience to launch enemies into the air using the scythe.
