In the Japanese version, this class is named Saint. Saint, being a shorthand of "Sword Saint", is the literal translation of the Romaji word, Kensai (剣聖). In ancient Japanese times, warriors who attained legendary swordsmanship skills were given the prestigious title of "Kensei". Clerics, other than being highly educated men of the Orthodox/Catholic church in ancient times, have nothing at all to do with warriors who excelled with the Sword, so the true meaning of the Japanese name was most likely lost in translation to English.

How to Obtain:
From the previous Mystic+Combat classes, Cleric can be reached simply by training Quad Wield. From any other class, it's easiest to obtain by training Weapons and Mystic only, using Items runs a high risk of getting one of the Item-related classes instead.
Being a Rank 5 class, the Cleric does not have a lot of upgrade options left. The only straight upgrades are the remaining Mystic+Combat classes:
- Deathknight: requires Dual Power Grip 16, STR53+ or INT53+
- Ninja: requires Quad Wield 22 and Katana 19, STR59+ or INT59+
The other higher Rank classes require either Item or Mystic significance, or have a minimum skill requirement. This makes them straightforward to change into. The only thing to keep in mind is that there's a class type change requirement needed to change into them.
