A Missionary may be created at any site where there is a church or cathedral. This may be on the Docks of Europe or in a colony where a church or cathedral has been built. Missionaries perform the following important special functions:
- Create missions in native settlements to counteract Indian anger
- Denounce another European's mission in a native settlement (which can result in the destruction of that mission)
- Incite Indians to attack another European power.
Jesuit Missionaries are particularly effective at these tasks.
