"Why won't they die!"
- Allied soldier encountering an Hunter's Priest during the Battle of Alderaan (Filo)
The Hunter's Priest, the Forebearers of the Hunter or simply the Silent Priests, are a rather mysterious group of Morts noted for their ability to float, producing black smoke-like substance and carrying around a black phantom flame. When they appear, they often indicate that the Hunter has taken an interest of the planet they appear on and foreshadows a coming hell that inevitably follows the Hunter in its wake.
The most known, and unsettlingly, thing they do, or rather don't do, is their silence. They never make a sound, even when hurt. They simply float around, silently observing and or attack people.
