"If my duties demand that I die, then so be it, my pet. My domain will prosper. My father will be escalated to the rank of mosthigh priest."
―Elan, to Vergere[1]

Mosthigh priest was a high-ranking title within the Yuuzhan Vong priest caste. When the Yuuzhan Vong Priestess Elan was tasked with a mission to assassinate many leading Jedi Knights of the New Jedi Order[1] in 25 ABY,[2] she believed the successful completion of her assignment would result in the escalation of her father, High Priest Jakan, to the rank of mosthigh priest. Following an attempt on Elan's life by a Yuuzhan Vong assassin on the planet Wayland, she assured her familiar Vergere that she accepted she might die in the course of her mission because her father would be promoted and their domain would prosper.[1]

Although Elan failed to assassinate the Jedi before her death during the Battle of Bilbringi,[1] her father went on to greater power and influence.[3] Nonetheless, Jakan retained the title of High Priest throughout the entirety of the Yuuzhan Vong War.[4]
