A priest who is the worst kind of evil without realizing it. Pucci is an amazing character. His pure ruthlessness, fierce ambition for heaven, and lack of hesitation are what make him such a formidable opponent. This also made him quite a challenge to play, but I think it was all worth it.
—Jouji Nakata, Eyes of Heaven
