Israphel is the leader of the Cult of Israphel in the popular Minecraft roleplaying series, Shadow of Israphel, which ran from 2010 to 2012 on The Yogscast, and the main antagonist of the series.

Israphel was born on January 1, 1905, possibly in the town of Terrorvale. Israphel's father was the head of Terrorvale's church, Reverend John. In his youth, Israphel worked for the esteemed Professor Grizwold, who played a key role later in the lore of YouTube series. At one point whilst working for Grizwold, the professor accidentally summoned a Creeper which killed the young Israphel.

But this was not the end of the story. Israphel was resurrected by a dark force and bestowed with several dark powers, and set off to conquer the Minecraft world.
