The Monk is not dressed as a typical Monk. He doesn't wear the traditional simple habit and rosary, but wears a fur-trimmed cloak with a gold pin. He is also described as more portly than the usual thin Monk (from fasting). All of this reveals that he is probably not a Monk because of his religious zeal, as he doesn't live the ascetic lifestyle.
