Events of The Last of Us Part II
Members of Seraphite were first seen in the Paris Games Week 2017 trailer, attempting to sacrifice an unnamed woman and two former members, Lev and Yara. After a brief struggle, the members of Seraphite were killed by their would-be victims shortly before a group of Clickers descended upon their location.
The cult was next seen in the E3 2018 Gameplay Reveal trailer. They are seen ritualistically executing an unnamed man and hunting Ellie. After silently eliminating several of them, they find her. Several brief firefights break out, ultimately resulting in Ellie killing the members of Seraphite that were pursuing her.
Beliefs and practices
Members of Seraphite practice a form of ritualistic sacrifice. They hang their sacrifices by the neck and disembowel them, believing that they are "nested with sin". The phrase "clip their wings" also has particular significance to members of the cult, repeated when in the presence of non-members whom they wish to harm.
All members of Seraphite seem to share several physical characteristics that could be required of members. For instance, all male members of Seraphite have a clean-shaven face and head, while all female members wear their hair in the same braided crown style. Also, all members have 'Glasgow Smile" scars on their cheeks.
