During the Third War, a group of wretched and heretical fallen priests[1] appeared. They once counted as the most devout amongst the clergy of Lordaeron. But, after years of constant war and suffering, they had lost their sense of the Holy Light. Now, they existed only to spread their frustration and negativity to their fellow men and women.[1]

They appeared as a category of creeps and counted Fallen Priests, Deceivers and Heretics among their ranks. They were modeled after the Acolytes of the Scourge.[2]
