Priests in Simon's Quest are holy men who allow Simon to rest and heal up his wounds at the various churches found in most towns. They can be found in the towns of Aldra, Fetra, Jova and Veros, which are the only ones that count with a church.
As with the rest of the villagers in the game, they will lock themselves up at night and will only resume providing their services once the sun has risen again.
- A ghostly priest can be found in the Royal Chapel in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, and interacting with him in the confessional booth either has him either attacking Alucard or supplying him with a Grape Juice (Wine in the Japanese version).
- Barlowe, one of the main characters in Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia, appears to have been designed after the priests from Simon's Quest.
