The Pope was a duct tape finger puppet created by Nevin Hotson and Ben Paul during the 2007-08 Mission. He had the likeness of a pope, and a smiling face. "The Pope" was written on him and he became remembered as a source of lewd jokes. His face was redrawn three times after the Sharpie marker markings wore off. This problem was solved when Ben Paul covered him in hockey tape contributed by Lyra's dad.
The Pope is currently thought to be hiding in the Sim Office, though he has not been seen since the end of the 2007-08 scholastic year. The latest intelligence places him as being thrown in the garbage by Lyra.
