There are plenty of clerical ranks left in the Catholic church. It even has some patriarchs, so we can reintroduce pope on the next level.

Or Nuncio somewhere near Cardinal.

No need to break the logic by introducing karate belts or ninja turtles.

I'm already confused by non clerical ranks like Sage or Saint.

A saint must be dead, JP-II was pope and had to die before canonizing thru the ranks of venerable, blessed and saint.

The afterlife offers even more heavenly ranks... Vroom could be an archangle

    Curiously, Perl Monks was developed by students in a town founded by Dutch Calvinist separatists ... or as LanX once put it:

    Separatist Calvinists founded a Monastery with Popes :)
