I think the theories that dehumanize the villagers of the Fishing Hamlet by making them into mad monsters or like, them having being replaced by the parasites inside Kos kinda miss the point of the whole thing.
The Hunters felt justified in killing those villagers because they lacked human features, but the game makes a point in portraying it all as a terrible sin. And it is, because these are still clearly people in an even more apparent way than most beasts too. They can speak, they feel human emotions... they are just half fish, and that was enough for Byrgenwerth to disregard their humanity and slaugther them.

What could deeper role of Wet Nurse be
There is some line about prayers Fishing Hamlet denizens are chanting that always seemed odd for me, as I did not know what sense to make out of it:
Tumblr media
(You will see some unpolished direct wording from Last Protagonist's document ( x ) just in case so something doesn't get lost in translation!)
So it seems more like they're asking someone "who have no blood" to curse the hunters to avenge Kos and the baby, whoever it is. It made me think it must be someone at least equal in power, perhaps a Great One as well. Well, here is the thing:
Tumblr media
Wet Nurse indeed is a Great One that doesn't bleed! Oedon could count as that too, but his true nature does manifest in the bloodspill as lore says, however I think it is important to pay attention at Wet Nurse's bird-ish nature, because:
Tumblr media Tumblr media
Messengers are spirits of the dead so it is not too wild to assume that the sentiment means, for their souls to end in the Dream, away from the Hunt! "Birds" deliver them there, right...? But as the player progresses the Hunt, more messengers appear in the Dream, yet when we arrive in the Dream there are only so many messengers! So, logically, those gathered in previous Nights of the Hunt became Winter Lanterns now. To clean the space for next night, and well... to not let spirits of the dead rest.
Notice that Winter Lanterns are only found in the nightmare-hosting locations specifically AND they DO hum Mergo's Lullaby! So maybe Wet Nurse herself, or at least higher beings like her are responcible. Hearing the prayers of victims of the hunters to never let anyone rest in peace, and answering them because Great Ones often do.
Tumblr media
(Kind of messed up how both heads of Winter Lanterns and Brain of Mensis are made of multiple bodies melted to look like a brain lined with eyes, like sinister foreshadowing of what Insight truly means... or perhaps mockery from Great Ones, for atrocities humans committed for eyes on the brain.)
Tumblr media
Interestingly, both ingame weapons associated with killing people to free them from the Nightmare and the Hunt are made of some sort of cosmic material, 'meteorite' adaptation works too, but Wet Nurse herself is very grim reaper appearing. Maybe she interfered with a legitimately well-intended process of "burials", or maybe whatever power inspired Gehrman to create such weapons was deceit of the century!
Tumblr media
I think it is entirely palatable she is doing it, she is all feathery, even her arms are. It is interesting how humanoid (pthumerian) she looks though, accessories and stance and sword/cloning skills similar to what Queen Yharnam uses, whereas being a Great One! She might have been an ascended Pthumerian, maybe even one blessed directly rather than those who struggle hard to ascend so she can do service!
Tumblr media
(Some datamined names taken from this ( x ) page)
I talked more elaborate way about this theory in this ( x ) post but I think that Ebrietas (and other celestial children who are still... children) and Amygdalae carry strong parallel of angels vs demons in the lore! Basically, Amygdalae are evil, 'fallen' versions of celestial children. Nightmare Apostles appear to descend from Pthumerian culture so naturally that they reside in Nightmare of Mensis as well and not only dungeons, and if Patches is any indication they evolved through "forbidden" knowledge Amygdalae distribute (for sacrifices)! Spider people even travel between waking world and Nightmare with ease like Amygdalae!
Worth to mention that more literally internal name of Wet Nurse translates as 'Death and Darkness Univercity' or 'Death and Darkness graduatee' so maybe this "evil" knowledge is distrubuted by herself. Nurturing Mergo so the Nightmare is growing is just what she is doing right now.
Tumblr media
However, previously I did not notice that by internal names Wet Nurse is from this "evil" side too! Besides whereas Queen Yharnam clearly wants Mergo to be free from torment, Shadows of Yharnam fight you - preventing you from reaching Byrgenwerth (so, to uncover the ritual) in waking world and preventing you from reaching Mergo in the Nightmare of Mensis! I had this headcanon that Wet Nurse losing her own child was result of being cursed by Moon Presence for 'betraying' her, so technically, she takes what IS her by holding Mergo hostage...
In any case, seems like literally every Pthumerian is more interested in nourishing the Nightmare than in poor baby's fate, except for his mother, even her servants (?) are against her interests. This is just sad.

On a more serious note: CRAP! You can see the whole city of Yharnam submerged in the water in the Fishing Hamlet!

Imagine if Bloodborne had an armor set like this for the fishing hamlet section of the dlc. Paired with a harpoon-esque trick weapon it would have been a perfect fit imo

Listen for the baneful chants.  Weep with them, as one in trance. And weep with us, oh, weep with us...
