A cult priest is a senior member of the Followers of Asica.

Typically, a cult priest is someone who has extensively studied the Book of Asica, has experience with the rituals described in the book, and has a certain amount of charisma and leadership, as they must be able to lead a chapter; a group of cultists. A chapter of Followers (also called an Asican chapter) may have as few as 10 members and as many as 200 members, depending on the location and the power and influence of the leading priest.

Different chapters have different methods of designating their leading priest; some are elected for a set period (usually a few years), some keep the position for life but elect their successor, and some go the hereditary route and designate a cultist as their successor before death. Certain chapters have even been led by members of the same family over several generations.

The typical tasks of a cult priest involve giving speeches and sermons to their chapter, reading and interpreting passages of the Book of Asica, overseeing the recruitment of new members, as well as planning and organizing the various rites and rituals outlined in the book.
