The Pope was born as the illegitimate son of the previous king of Tethe'alla making him the current king's younger half-brother. Filled with bitter and envy that his older brother is the heir to the throne, he worked his way up the social ladder to become the pope to secretly gain his trust and murder him for the throne, he established many cruel and racist laws against half-elves. It is later discovered that he has a half-elven daughter named Kate, technically the niece of the current king who was forced to work in Sybak as a scientist. When questioned about why he established these laws, his explanation was largely vain, based on his fear of the half-elven population, with their powerful magic and slow aging process. The Pope begins to harass the group after he notices that two half-elves travel among them. The Pope bans the group from Meltokio and the Grand Tethe'alla Bridge. The Papal Knights attack the party numerous times in order to arrest or kill them.
