"Three years of serving this so-called King of Israel, and what is my reward? An eternal kingdom in the heavens. And this Messiah says that I have to die just to get my reward? Well, I want to have my kingdom here now, and if He can't give it to me, then He doesn't deserve to be King."
Judas Iscariot is a character who is part of the EMPATH: The Luckiest Smurf story series.
He is the Biblical apostle of Jesus Christ who betrayed Him for thirty pieces of silver. In the EMPATH stories, he is somehow related to the evil wizard Gargamel, and his heart has already been corrupted by power and money, seeing that he was only interested in following Jesus Christ for monetary gain in the present age rather than the promised eternal inheritance. He also has a cat named Ashtoreth, a possible ancestor of Azrael. Given that his marital status in the Gospels was left in question, it's likely that Judas in this story had a wife that he left behind in order to join up with Jesus during His three-year ministry to the people of Israel in the land of Judea.
In the story "The Passion Of The Smurfs", Judas Iscariot noticed the Smurfs following him as he attended the Lord's last supper. On the night before Jesus' crucifixion, when Judas tried to repeal the decision to have Him handed over to the high priests and was rejected, causing him to throw his money at the high priests' feet, Judas spotted the Smurfs and chased after them. However, when Puppy chased after him and his cat after he cut off the Smurfs' escape, he accidentally ran himself off a ledge and fell to his death, impaled and hanging on a sharp broken tree near a field below the ledge. Thus he ended up fulfilling what the Holy Bible said about him.
The Judas in this story is a selfish man who isn't afraid to work behind the back of the Messiah to plot getting rid of Him, although he later suffers a fit of conscience and remorse for doing so. He is also notably a coward, as he and Ashtoreth are easily scared off by Puppy chasing after them when he was chasing after the Smurfs.
Like the character Gargamel, his voice actor would be Hank Azaria.
