The Priest caste was one of the most powerful castes in the Yuuzhan Vong social structure.



The Priests were those who were chosen to speak for the Gods, save for Yun-Yuuzhan. They also took the auguries to see if the Gods would favor the Warriors in battle. As a caste, the Priests had no specific deity to call their own, but were devoted to an individual deity for another caste.

The Priest caste was very important in the choosing of the Supreme Overlord, and he practically ruled with their consent.

There was a different subgroup within this caste known as the Deception sect that consisted of followers of the 'Trickster' goddess Yun-Harla and were used as spies in the galaxy. Another sect was the Order of Yun-Yuuzhan

The priest caste actions began in the initial stages of the Yuuzhan Vong War when the extragalactic invaders made their advances into the galaxy after the failure of the Praetorite Vong in gaining a foothold.

Harrar of the priest caste was involved in a plan at eliminating the Jedi by using the priestess Elan as a means to deliver a bioweapon attack but this attempt failed.

As the war continued, this caste began noting increase problems in the Yuuzhan Vong Empire as a number of their kind began to believe in the Jeedai Heresy.

After the war's end, the remaining members of this caste left with their kin to the living planet of Zonama Sekot.
