This is unlocked upon killing Seath The Scaleless.

The first time you encounter Seath you are supposed to die. He is invulnerable, so just stand there and let him kill you. You will then wake up in the Dukes Archives to progress the story.

The area where you can actually fight him is the end of the Crystal Cave. When the fight first starts, immediately run behind him and break a vertical crystal structure located at the back of the area. Breaking it allows you to deal damage to Seath.

Seath is able to inflict Curse upon your character, so make sure you are wearing curse resistant armor and/or the curse resist ring.

Seath has a few main attack based on my playthrough.
1. He will spit/breath crystals on the ground which will damage your character and inflict curse. Rolling around in these crystals is not advised unless you are near the edge of the them in order to get out.
He has a few variations of this move regarding how he spits the crystals (sweeping from side to side or directly in front of him)
2. Tail whips. If you stand too close to his any of tails for too long he will begin to whip them into the ground. Getting hit by this will typically cause you to lose your poise and end up defenseless on the ground.
3. He may try to grab you if you stand directly in front of him. I only encountered this once and he missed because I rolled away.

General Strategy.
I was playing as a light (weight) melee character so I can only offer help for this type of play. Using the curved God Sword Quelaggs Fury.
After breaking the crystal I would start this very simple routine.
Run to his right side (holding B) and when just close enough to his tail, tap RB to sweep my sword in one motion doing roughly 200 damage. Seath then would turn to face me and I would run towards his opposite tail, running in front of him. This usually always caused him to spit crystals behind me leaving his other side open to a good few swipes. Rinse and repeat numerous times and he was done.

Rewards you with 40000 souls and a Bequeathed Lord Soul Shard. A Bonfire will appear in the middle of the area upon his defeat.
