The Blind Prophet is a character that appears in the music videos for the songs "Blackstar" and "Lazarus", from the album Blackstar. This is one of David Bowie's final characters.

The Blind Prophet wears a blindfold with buttons over it. It could be related to fear. Or that being blind and only seeing darkness could relate to death. He has white, pointy hair and black clothes. He has been described as being anxious, introverted, and tormented.

He appears along with two other characters in the music video for "Blackstar": The Priest Guy and The Flamboyant Trickster.
