Cult Leader Morty is one of the many Mortys that have been kidnapped by Evil Rick and held hostage on a Hideout Planet, where they are constantly tortured day in and day out. A large amount of the Mortys have read a book called The Good Morty, which tells them that there's a prophet called The One True Morty, that will one day come to rescue them from the dungeon. This has formed a cult, where they await the arrival of The One True Morty to save them. This specific Morty is the one who takes charge of everything, and is seen as the one who can deliver the word of The One True Morty, while they wait for him to arrive.
Cult Leader Morty is the exact same as the original Morty Smith in physical appearance, only he has made a few changes in his clothing attire. He wears a tannish brown colored hooded cloak over his body and is supposedly naked underneath. He has also used some pinkish red face paint to make a few striped and dotted patterns on his face.
