One Night on the Caribbean Queen
Ordo Templi Orientis
A group of serious occultists (although their actual ability varies greatly). This is an offshoot of the Ordo Templi Orientis in Germany where members Gretta Spengler and Maximilian Diederich Gottschalk II both have deep ties. Recently they attempted a séance trying to raise the spirit of Sekhemkhet, an Egyptian Pharoah who ruled for a very short time from 2648-2640 BC. A relief located at Wadi Maghareh (the Valley of Caves) depicts two characters but one of their heads has been chiseled out. One of the arcane rituals mentioned in the book of the Ordo, Pert Em Hru (“Coming Forth by Day” or “Manifested in the Light”), requires a ritual animal be sacrificed that matches the head of the God speaking to Sekhemkhet. Since the relief has been defiled and the headdress that the mysterious God is wearing is gone, the Ordo thought to ask him personally. During the second attempt at this séance Kiera Padgett, a gifted conduit, lost her life as a monstrous something came through a mirror and attacked everyone in the room.
