Real Name: Unrevealed

Identity/Class: Unrevealed-presumably human

Occupation: oracle

Affiliations: Brett Carson, Daimon Hellstrom/Hellstorm

Enemies: Mindstar

Known Relatives: None

Aliases: The Celestial Fool

Base of Operations: Unrevealed

First Appearance: Son of Satan#4 (July, 1976)

 

Powers/Abilities: Proffet possesses/possessed undefined precognitive, clairvoyant, empathic, and perception distorting powers. However, while she could show visions, she could not (or would not) interpret them. She could apparently travel to other realms and enter the astral plane and the dreams of others. She was drawn to others by instinct, although for what purpose is unclear.
She claimed to have lost all of her abilities.

History: Proffet's origins remain unrevealed.

(Son of Satan#4) - Proffet appeared to Daimon Hellstrom in a dream, giving him glimpses of a future encounter with Anubis, taunting him with vague comments on his dual nature.

(Son of Satan#5) - As Hellstorm sought to decipher the nature of an attack on a man by Mindstar, Proffet showed up, told him she wasn't involved with the attacks, and refused (or was unable) to explain anything to him: "I have no answers...only questions! I am merely the Celestial Fool!"

(Son of Satan#6) - As Brett Carson headed off, under the manipulations of Anubis, Proffet claimed to be "the catalyst, weaving the tapestry of fate that possesses you! How much longer can I pretend I don't understand these visions that come to me?"

(Son of Satan#7) - As Saripha Thames performed a mystical ritual to assist Daimon against Mindstar, Proffet realized that she did/does understand her visions, and that the time had come to assist Daimon herself. She traveled to Anubis' Palace of Death and Rebirth, where Daimon and Mindstar fought. She warped their perceptions, defending Daimon against Mindstar's attacks, until Mindstar zeroed in on and blasted her. After Daimon overpowered Mindstar, he used his powers to heal Proffet. She then revealed that her visions and dreams were gone, and that she could now see and feel things as other humans would: "I don't know if I'll like what I perceive...but I am glad it happened. Farewell."

Comments: Created by John Warner and Sonny Trinidad.

This is another character, where if you didn't check the credits closely, you'd be sure it was a 1970s Gerber creation. She's a mystery, wrapped in a conundrum, rolled in a doobie.

I'm too young to remember the 1970s with great detail, but Gerber was big into the Celestial Fool thing, and I remember Homer Simpson playing such as character, possibly while stoned to the bujeezus bells. I'm guessing it had something to do with the psychoactive "mind-expanding" drugs that were big at the time.
