The Exorcist is a group project mod that adds a brand new hero to Darkest Dungeon. This hero is completely custom, with all new sprites, skills, sounds, and animations, as well as a complete set of unique trinkets, alternate color palettes and team combos.

A religious offensive support, the Exorcist has a varied skill set that focuses on disrupting enemies and buffing allies. His unending war against demonkind, which he claims was spoken to him by the Light itself, has led this religious firebrand to the Hamlet, where he seeks to put his expertise in banishing otherworldly evil to good use.

"A powerful disruptive combatant, the Exorcist calls upon his unwavering faith in combat to smite his foes, condemning them with holy magic. A lifetime of servitude has made him terrifyingly effective at banishing unholy monstrosities and eldritch evils. His knowledge of prayers allows him to fortify his teammates by rallying them to his zealous cause."
