The priests are the keepers of the faith in the Griffin Empire. They fight fiercely against non-believers and any who threaten the Church of Elrath. As priests they do not engage in melee on the battlefield, but instead summon the wrath of their deity on enemy troops.OffBck

The priest is the fifth-level creature of the Haven in Heroes of Might and Magic V.

Priests are followers of Elrath, the Dragon of Light. Mostly they pray, but fight to help people in need. They use magic to fight, but are skilled in close combat.
