A character (or several) that leads the religious group they belong to. They can be either [[GoodSheperd good]] or [[SinisterMinister evil]], depending on whether the religion in question is a SaintlyChurch or ReligionOfEvil, respectively. It can be a bit more iffy in a CorruptChurch, since the character may not know of its corruption, or may be working to root it out. The High Priest usually resides in a Vatican-style HolyCity, especially if the church worships an [[CrystalDragonJesus Abrahamic-analogue God]].

* The Imam of Shia Islam is a much straighter example. Much like the High Priesthood in Judaism, the immamate is hereditary, derived from the prophet through his daughter Fatima. Whomever the individual was, he is supposed to be infallible in matters of faith and religion, and to receive direct revelation from God. However, for the majority of Shia Muslims, the office of Imam is not held by a living person.

* While the Tribunal in ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' were [[PhysicalGod living gods]] hanging around on Tamriel, the Tribunal Temple still had separate Archcanons that seemed to handle a lot of the more practical business of leading a church. In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' two Archcanons were met, the implication being that they were associated with a specific Tribune (one had his temple next door to Vivec's palace in [[{{Egopolis}} Vivec]], and Almalexia hung out in the [[{{Egopolis}} Almalexia]]-located temple of the other). Presumably there'd have been a third if Sotha Sil hadn't withdrawn from mortal affairs to the point that it isn't even known ''where'' his city is.

* While ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** After defeating
the [[AbusivePrecursors Ayleids]] and [[FounderOfTheKingdom founding]] the First Cyrodiilic Empire, St. Alessia upheld her end of the BargainWithHeaven by making the religion of the Eight Divines (which worships the eight [[OurGodsAreDifferent Aedra]] who [[DivineIntervention aided her]] during the Alessian Revolt) into the official religion of her new Empire. This new religion was a compromise between the traditional [[OurElvesAreBetter Aldmeri]] pantheon (which her Cyrodiilic followers, as slaves to the Ayleids, were accustomed to) and the Nordic Pantheon of her [[HornyVikings Nord]] allies, who refused to accept any "Elven" gods. Thousands of years later, through several Empires, the religion of the Eight (later Nine) Divines continues to serve as a SaintlyChurch to much of Tamriel.
** The Dunmeri (Dark Elf)
Tribunal in ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' were Temple was formed to worship the Tribunal, a trio of [[PhysicalGod living gods]] hanging around on Tamriel, flesh and blood]] gods. The Tribunal (Vivec, Almalexia, Sotha Sil) were the formerly mortal advisors to [[FounderOfTheKingdom Lord Nerevar]], the leader of the ancient (then known as Chimer) Dunmer people, who [[DeityOfHumanOrigin obtained godhood]] by tapping into the power of [[CosmicKeystone the Heart]] of a [[GodIsDead "dead" god]]. For thousands of years, the Tribunal Temple lived and worked among their people. However, they still had separate Archcanons that seemed to handle a lot of "Archcanons" responsible for running the more practical business of leading a church. In the Temple. A few centuries prior to the events of ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' Morrowind]]'', the Tribunal's ancient enemy, Dagoth Ur ([[KingInTheMountain long presumed to be dead]]), returned and ambushed the Tribunal on one of their annual pilgrimages to restore their divinity at the Heart. He managed to capture two of the three tools needed to tap into the Heart, depriving the Tribunal of the ability to recharge. After this, in order to conserve power, the Tribunal was forced to withdraw from the day-to-day affairs of their people. More and more responsibility fell onto the Archcanons were met, the implication being that they were associated with a specific Tribune (one had his temple next door to Vivec's palace in [[{{Egopolis}} Vivec]], and Almalexia hung out in the [[{{Egopolis}} Almalexia]]-located temple other mortal leaders of the other). Presumably there'd have been a third if Sotha Sil hadn't withdrawn from mortal affairs Temple, leading to [[CorruptChurch significant corruption]]. During ''Morrowind'' itself, it is possible for the point that it isn't even known ''where'' his city is.PlayerCharacter to become the new Archcanon of the Temple.
