I wanted to find out what happens when a demon afflicts a Post-Human consciousness, that is, a being afflicts a human who has uploaded their minds into an immortal body-less form. How would an ancient institution grapple with that?

A Cyberpunk Exorcism. Fr. Ben Xavier's life as a priest is a quiet one. Few of his parishioners know that he is the diocese's appointed exorcist and those cases are rare enough not to disturb the day to day hum of parish life. Fr. Xavier thinks that he has seen enough of humanity to never be surprised-- until an Incarnate-- a human whose consciousness has been uploaded into immortality online-- appears at his door manifesting some truly confusing signs. 
Even if he got permission from the Bishop how can he preform the ancient rite on a being that doesn't have a body-- on something that he isn't fully convinced is even a human soul?
