Darkbeast Paarl is a Boss in Bloodborne. A malformed beast enveloped in blue lightning with a long body made of only bones and a wrinkle-covered skull, people say this beast must be very old, very ancient. Or perhaps, it is a descendant of the city of the plague of beasts. It may be one of the experiments of the people of Yahar'gul, the Hidden Village, in the attempt to make a Great One. Due to the vague physical similarities between Paarl and the One Reborn, it is plausible that Paarl and the One Reborn are products of the same experiment.
