Easy tip for his invasions if you keep dying: when he spawns just run past him until he stops following you, he'll lose interest and walk back to his starting location and stop giving his back to you, just walk to him, backstab him and repeat until he dies.
>lore: we can assume that cleric beasts were smaller We can read description of the Laurence's Skull to find out who was the first Cleric beast. Based on the size of Laurence's skull in the waking world plus the size of the First Vicar boss in the nightmare, we can assume that Cleric beasts can be either big or small. Or that size difference is just a simple convension.
