The Phantom Stranger
Until I am called again, I have no choice but to watch and wait, apart from everyone, being nothing more than...a stranger.
~ The Phantom Stranger


The Phantom Stranger, formerly known as Judas Iscariot, is a member of the infamous Trinity of Sin, a group of the three most egregious sinners in history. Judas' betrayal of Jesus Christ earned him membership in the group, and he was cursed with immortality, doomed to wander and serve the Presence until he gained redemption. He wears a necklace made of his pieces of silver, losing one piece each time he completes a significant task for the Presence. His mission has forced him to become both hero and betrayer, and he has become a legendary mystical figure over his centuries of wandering.
