He is a short, old man wearing long, red and white robes, a bishop's hat, and glasses.
The Bishop presides over Prince Eric and Vanessa's wedding aboard the Wedding Ship. As he begins the ceremony, Scuttle along with other birds and sea animals attack Vanessa. The Bishop doesn't even notice and attempts to finish the wedding. He presumably performed Prince Eric and Ariel's Wedding.
- In the theatrical version, the Bishop's legs were animated in more detail. This led to some viewers believing that the Bishop's knees were, in fact, an erection, and was meant to be an amusing easter egg geared towards adults. The animators denied this and, to address the controversy, reanimated the Bishop in later releases.
