— Wilkes' default comment in the Winner's Circle.

David "Prophet" Wilkes is a Specialist in Call of Duty: Black Ops III.


"Wilkes got his first set of cybernetic augmentations while serving in the British Engineering Corps. Five years and many upgrades later, he is the embodiment of the cutting edge of human weaponry on the battlefield, using his superior technology to disrupt opponents’ tactics before moving in for the kill."
— Prophet's biography

Prophet, ever since he was a child, had a fascination with technology. When he was in the army, his parents were stricken with a disease that couldn't be diagnosed, let alone be cured. He went on leave to care for them and after their deaths he signed up for DNI enhancement. He quickly began enhancing himself with more and more cybernetics, such as limb, audio, visual, and medical enhancements. Implant by implant, he became less human. By the time of the game's events, he is over 70% cybernetic.

Prophet believes that cybernetics are the future for mankind and that they are a way of forced evolution for humans. He takes an interest in Ruin and Seraph, most notably in their cybernetics. He recommends Ruin get more cybernetics and calls him "Brother" and calls Seraph's arm "Elegant". He also takes an interest in Reaper and appears in his transmissions.

Despite his respect for his comrades they seem to ignore his compliments or suggestions. However they don't seem to hate him. Only Outrider and Nomad show disgust at Prophet's cybernetics.
