Cardinal Ravenwood is one of the villains of Metalocalypse.
He is an elderly priest and member of the Tribunal. He presents a religious perspective on the issues regarding Dethklok. He claims to have prophetic visions on a regular basis, most of which relate to Dethklok; however, they do not appear to be very reliable, or at the very least are not fulfilled as literally as he explains them. Though his visions are usually inaccurate, he does accurately foretell his own death, having had dreams of Selatcia speaking to him in an unknown language, which he interprets as a sign that he would die. The prediction is realized in "The Metalocalypse Has Begun", when Selatcia telekinetically blinds him and causes his intestines to extrude from his mouth for his betrayal. Though Crozier forgot the events of the night, Ravenwood continuously appears to him in dreams which seem to be more than just memories but also warnings from beyond the grave.

Ravenwood is portrayed in a more comedic way than the rest of the members of the Tribunal. Aside from his predictions that end up proving to be false, he is shown doing other various things. In "Religionklok", when the Satanic church that Dethklok visits awakens the "Four Demons of the Apocalypse" (not to be confused with the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse), Ravenwood can be briefly seen praying and crying out "Lord!" repeatedly. In "Skwisklok", he admits to looking forward to Skwisgaar's Advanced Fast Hand Finger Wizard Master Class, as he has been learning how to play the guitar, then doing an air guitar motion. An extra in the Season 1 DVD even shows Ravenwood learning from the master class. Finally, in the Season 1 finale, when Crozier's forces are about to kill multiple members of Dethklok, Ravenwood tells Crozier that he must pray first, however Crozier demands he skip the prayers and proceed with the ritual. Before he can do anything however, Selatcia brutally kills him and all the remaining soldiers.
