St. Francis is a Priest-like cheat unit in Age of Empires, who can be spawned only by typing "Convert This!" into the chat box. He looks like a Priest, but is much more powerful and cannot convert or heal individual units. The unit has 200 attack and a range of 10, has no armor and starts with 25 hit points. His stats can be upgraded as with a normal Priest.
