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 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.
The 1999-02-16 prototype version of Soul Reaver includes the Priestess. Her model includes a complete set of animations, but the logic for her boss battle does not appear to have been implemented by the time that prototype was created.
The Priestess is also depicted in concept art and makes a brief appearance in Top Cow's Soul Reaver comic book.
