I always find priests and religious figures to be fascinating in fiction and literature.  They often face powerful, troubling questions about faith and hope that mirror what I imagine a lot of religious people face in their day-to-day lives.  It’s especially fascinating to see Christian figures in stories from countries that are largely non-Christian, like this guy from a space-western cartoon, who always lugs around a cross-shaped parcel.

Spoiler alert:  it’s a big ol’ gun.
