NoImage Alert.png Judging from the current state of this page, there is no available image on the Overlord Fandom as of yet to help emphasize its appearance. Since it is lacking visuals, this article requires an image for the first time, the kind which should be high quality and distinguishable. Unknown Intruder, you could go out of your way to assist the Overlord Wiki by adding an image that came from any Overlord adaptation to it. It cannot be a fan-art or fan-made. You must upload the official ones visually drawn by the main producers of the light novel, manga and anime adaptations.

Pontifex Maximus (最高神官) is the head of state of the Slane Theocracy.




At some point the current Pontifex Maximus was originally a member of one of the Six Scriptures. It can be assumed that he managed to rise to the rank of a Cardinal since only a member of the Six Cardinals can rise to the position of Pontifex Maximus.
