Bio: Vengeful adoptive father of Wolfsbane, who began hating her even more when she became a mutant. He's also a reverend and brought Rahne into Christianhood.
A priest in Northern Scotland, he preached hellfire and damnation while living a life worthy of such condemnation.
Reverend Craig witnessed the arrival of Cable in the present. Seeing the flash of light and the smoke rising from his body, it didn't take long for the Reverend to rally the people of the town together and label Cable as the Devil's Herald. The name seemed even more appropriate when the townspeople saw Cable's glowing eye and metallic "skin." Cable used his telepathy to convince everyone that he was simply Moira MacTaggert's cousin from London. The Reverend left peaceably, abandoning his desires to kill the "spawn of Satan."
When Rahne is taken prisoner by the Purifiers, she is brainwashed by Reverend Craig to attack Angel and steal his wings. After she does, Reverend Craig tries to kill her. Eventually, she attacks and brutally kills him.
Notes: Introduced by writer Chris Claremont and artist Bob McLeod.
