Predecessor: Green Lantern of Selsia V
Priest was a Green Lantern
who began his service with the Green Lantern Corps
hundreds of years ago. Having been chosen by the Guardians of the Universe
to be the successor to the Green Lantern of Selsia V, Priest was sent to to retrieve the Fallen Lantern
's power ring
. However, the ring was being worn by the Fallen Lantern's son, Lord Malvolio
, who had killed his father, stole his ring, and took control of his homeworld. The Guardians ordered Priest to eliminate Malvolio upon retrieval of the power ring. Priest defeated the Lantern killer but imprisoned Malvolio within a starless void of Sector 1634, instead of executing him. For not following through with the orders given him, Priest was stripped of his ring and banished to an asteroid belt within Sector 1634, as well. Over the course of time, Priest came across Hal Jordan
and enlisited his aid to forge a peace treaty between warring factions in Sector 1634. Jordan would have his own conflict with Lord Malvolio some time later. Priest then used illusions on Jordan to test if he had fallen under Malvolio's influence. Priest would go on to join Hal and Ch'p
after the Guardians of the Universe withdrew from the universe following the events of the Crisis on Infinite Earths
. Priest had offered to provide company to the lone Guardian Appa Ali Apsa
and was, ultimately, killed by the insane immortal.
Priest is memorialized in the Crypts of Oa.
During Blackest Night, Priest one one of the many Fallen Lanterns resurrected as a Black Lantern. His current whereabouts are currently unknown.
