      Looks like a Kappa from Japanese folk lore. It fits the environ of an abyssal swamp and general comparisons between the abyss and a body of water.

        I can imagine a player cleric whom has avoided concepts of dark and curses looking at their brethren and wondering why their raw faith didn't protect them, and worrying that if their faith didn't protect these poor souls then whats stopping them from turning mad as a hollow any minute...?

          Silencing works well. They can't cast damaging miracles or heal. They still turtle up, but just without the healing.

            I just lost 80000 souls (did play the DLC once on NG+, but I lost the save so I am playing the whole game again now) to one of this piece of*****, his miracles could appear while I was on a ladder WTF!!!

              Okay tested this run:

              Starting from the Ringed CIty Streets bonfire, there is 12 clerics to kill. The run takes between 02:30-03:00 min (02:00 if you're fast af) and with my gear (Avarice, GSR+3, SSR+3, Crystal Rapier, Shield of Want) i managed to get 1-3 Twinkling titanites each run and 45k souls. I have never to farm the Archdragon rock lizards, but this aint too bad imo!
