“Dearly beloved, I will now read the special vows which Homer has prepared for this occasion. Do you Marge take Homer in richness and poorness, poorness is underlined, in impotence and im-po-tence, in quiet solitude or blasting across the alkali flats in a jet powered monkey navigated…and it goes on like this…”.

An unusually powerful Dire Wraith Sorcerer, the Wraith Priest is...well a Dire Wraith masquerading as a priest.


So long had this Wraith been on Earth among the humans that he no longer considered his natural Dire Wraith form to be his "true" form.

The Wraith had a fascination with human religions and over the years had assumed the forms of a Jewish kohem, a Muslim allamah, and a Catholic priest. Over the years, he had baptized many human children and learned "many truths" from human religion with the ulterior motive of collecting an abundance of psychic energy for the true Dire Wraith god. The Wraith also believed however that by doing these acts, he was bringing salvation to humanity.

When the Space Knights, Rom, Livia, and Orphion were visiting Pismo Beach, a local man directed Orphion in the Priest's direction. When the Knights arrived, the Priest greeted them in the form of a Catholic priest only for Rom to cut him off and insist he return to his true form. The Wraith mockingly began shifting through his many assimilated forms while boasting of how he knew the human intimately and brought them salvation. Though Livia wanted to kill the Wraith, Rom asked him to continue, intrigued by such an "expansive" Wraith only for the Priest to begin mocking the Knights as children for their xenophobia in killing all that was different before he summoned an illusion of a monstrous Wraith.

Orphion then wrapped the priest in his tail who simply mocked the death of the Knight's world and children before Rom questioned the Priest again asking why the Wraiths needed so much energy. Responding that the energy was for the Wraith god, the Wraith then used Orphion's hatred and rage to fuel his transformation into a monstrous form, one durable enough to resist Livia's Neutralizer. However when Rom and Orphion added their own energies to Livia's weapon, the Wraith met his end but did so laughing, claiming that the Knights were sending him to the bosom of his god and that the Wraith god would soon be upon them all.

In the aftermath, Orphion took the Wraith Priest as proof that Rom was correct about the uniqueness of Earth but remained unsure if the Priest was proof that Earth should be spared or destroyed. Interlude
