For information about the enemy from Hexen, see Dark Bishop.


The player of Strife confronts The Order's military leader, the Bishop. He also carries the second piece of the Sigil.

The Bishop is the second linear boss of Strife, and is the first boss to be directly possessed by a Spectre. The Bishop is probably the game's greatest interpretation of a cyborg. He has bipedal legs similar to the Crusaders, and a human upper body on what looks like a rotating platform. He also carries a massive missile launcher on his right arm that is able to home on its targets, and he wears the second piece of the Sigil around his neck. He has 500 hit points and goes down fairly easily, however his missiles can be a threat to inexperienced players, and the further threat of his Spectre complicates things. Upon death, the Bishop drops a crate of missiles and his Spectre will come out.
