Abyss Lectors are creatures that are a part of the Abyss Order and who are capable of manipulating intense abyssal energy. These creatures are evangelists that can chant malefic poetry of the Abyss to command their powers.

Lectors resemble Abyss Heralds and are about the same height as them, but use catalysts to attack enemies.

Within the Abyss Order, Lectors refer to themselves as "exegetes."[1]
