The Priestess

article by Ben Lincoln

 

The Priestess was to have been the boss of The Undercity and The Temple deleted area beneath the Human Citadel. Along with her cult of vampire-worshippers, she would have infected the Citadel with a malignant influence.

Raziel's battle with The Priestess was described by several Crystal Dynamics employees as being based on her summoning monsters while staying out of reach high on a ledge. Defeating her would have bestowed the similar Possession ability upon Raziel. It would also have removed her influence from the Citadel; what effect this would have had on it (if any) is uncertain.

No screenshots of The Priestess are known to exist, although she is depicted in concept art and makes a brief appearance in Top Cow's Soul Reaver comic book. In addition, there is an image of a woman on the puzzle block in the "chapel" room of the game which may also be The Priestess.
