Cardinal Ravenwood

Cardinal Ravenwood was an elderly priest and member of the Tribunal. He presented a religious perspective on the issues regarding Dethklok. He claimed to have prophetic visions on a regular basis, most of which related to Dethklok; however, they were not always reliable, or at the very least were not fulfilled as literally as he explained them.

While his visions were often inaccurate, he did accurately foretell his own death, having had dreams of Salacia speaking to him in an unknown language, which he interpreted as a sign that he would die. The prediction is realized in “The Metalocalypse Has Begun”, when Salacia telekinetically exploded his eyes and causes his intestines to extrude from his mouth and strangle him for his betrayal. His dying words: “The Metalocalypse has begun.” Indeed, his death was the trigger for the countdown of the Metalocalypse.

Though Crozier forgot the events of the night, Ravenwood continuously appeared to him in dreams which seemed to be more than just memories, but also warnings from beyond the grave. Mysteriously, when members of the Tribunal appeared at a U.N. assembly to possibly oversee the meeting, one of the members present appeared to be Ravenwood. However, this may be a sight gag.


  • Cardinal Ravenwood can be seen watching Skwisgaar's Advanced Fast Hand Finger Wizard Master Class in a DVD extra.
    • This is not the first time he has shown interest in mundane or otherwise “silly” things. In the season one episode “Girlfriendklok”, he is one of many to insist that he attends the Pornography Awards, likely to see naked women.
