lord of black flames

“TV Boy” Sketchbook & Digital, 2017
FLCL aired on this day 14 years ago in the US, marking one of my favorite and possibly most pivotal pieces of work. It inspired a large compendium of my early art as well as writing and still to this day remains a huge piece of inspiration. I don’t think you can mention the series to fans without conjuring one of two images to mind right off the bat: Haruhara Haruko, for more obvious reasons of being almost solely responsible for all of the events that unfold in the show; and Canti, better known as Naota’s live-in house cleaning robot that was the first piece of Medical Mechanica tech to emerge from Takkun’s forehead. With allusions to several episodes mixed in, and after the announcement of a second (and third) season, I couldn’t not do a piece as an homage to one of my primordial beacons of inspiration. From Little Busters to Last Dinosaur, there’s nothing not to like <3

Hades ascended in his war chariot to confront her, wreathed in shadows and flame, pulled by dark horses.  The dryads of the poplar and willow trees fled before him, and the grasses shriveled to ash under obsidian hooves.

“BRIGHT LADY. I OFFER A THRONE. A KINGDOM. A CROWN. DESCEND WITH ME. RULE OVER THE HALLS OF THE DEAD”
His voice echoed with centuries of stone, his eyes bright with black flames.  


Persephone eyed the tall and terrible Lord thoughtfully. “You’re scorching my violets.”

—  The Illustrated Hades and Persephone, Megan C. Lloyd
The Vow

Lord Satan … King of Hell … True Master of this World … Father of the Demonic Legion … Thorn in the brow of Christ … Black Flame of Creation … Dark Lord of Desires … Lord of Illusions … Giver of Knowledge … Prince of the Isolate Pit … to you I vow The Given Key Of Satan shall be unveiled … the Priestesses of Satan and Lilith shall be gathered for the Convocation for they are the Priestesses of the new Infernal Aeon … and those Brethren who shall join me shall aid this quest to its successful conclusion … on my Oath as a Satanist this shall manifest for the shades of the Dark Creed already converge for this Calling!

Looking at Moana and saying “It’s just the same story that Disney’s made before” is like looking at Starry Night and saying “It’s just a picture of the night sky.”

Yes, Moana is the story of a girl who wants to leave her home and controlling father and sneaks off with an animal sidekick to meet a magical companion and go on musical adventures before living happily ever after. And yes, Starry Night is a painting of a town and stars and a moon and a…mountain? Tree? The descent of the Dark Lord Chernabog in a plume of black flame? 

But Starry Night is a night sky revered for its beauty. It’s a mix of dots and swirls of pigment, all woven together into one picture that ultimately ends up being Exactly What It Says on the Tin. Technically, anyone could replicate it with a late-night roadtrip and a Polaroid camera. Moana doesn’t use oils or pigments, but instead computer-generated images and an all-Pacific-Islander cast to tell the same story we’ve heard before. It’s a tribute to a culture, an inspiration to children, and a message that says “Hey, you’ve seen this story, but have you seen it like this?” 

Yes, if you’ve watched Hercules, The Little Mermaid, Return of the Jedi, Lord of the Rings, Prince of Egypt, Pocahontas, Aladdin, The Neverending Story, Mad Max, Jaws, and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, you’ve pretty much seen this movie. But you haven’t seen all of their story elements picked out and swirled back together like this before, using the oils of a Polynesian Disney Princess upon the canvas of a full-length feature. 

Grace Elliott (1754 - 1823)

Mistress of: King George IV of the United Kingdom and Louis Philippe II, Duke of Orléans, among others .
Tenure: 1781 – 1782 (George) and c. 1785 – 1789 (Louis).
Royal Bastards: One (Disputed).
Fall From Power: He passed her on (George) and the French Revolution began (Louis).


Grace Dalrymple Elliott’s extraordinary life began about 1754, probably in Edinburgh, Scotland. She was the youngest daughter of Hew Dalrymple and an unnamed mother. Her parents separated either shortly before or after her birth, though other sources say Hew abandoned them. Grace was educated in a French convent until she was about sixteen, at which point she went to England and was reacquainted with her father.

Even at this young age, Grace was said to have been strikingly beautiful. She caught the attention of Sir John Eliot, 1st Baronet, and a Scottish physician. Perhaps because her father was soon to be relocated to the Caribbean, a hasty marriage was arranged and on October 19th, 1771 the seventeen-year-old Grace married the thirty-five-year-old John. Grace was now part of high society, though the couple soon drifted apart. In 1774, Grace started an affair with Lord Valentia. The scandal went public when John sued Valentia for criminal conversation (adultery) and was awarded £12,000 in “damages”. They divorced soon after, but Grace’s reputation was ruined. She left England and briefly returned to a French convent. Apparently the life of a nun just didn’t suit Grace and she returned to England with Lord Cholmondeley, whom she began a relationship with in 1776. She changed the spelling of her surname from Eliot to Elliott to rid herself of her former husband.

Following the end of her affair with Cholmondeley, Grace became acquainted with the Prince of Wales, the future George IV. The story goes that George saw a portrait of Grace, immediately became enamored, and requested to see her. The affair was brief but Grace fell pregnant. Her daughter was born on March 30th, 1782 and used the name Georgina Seymour. Grace declared that the Prince of Wales was the father, which George apparently admitted to in private, though he changed his mind after seeing the child, who was apparently quite dark, declaring that “to convince me that this is my girl they must first prove that black is white.” Grace’s old flame Lord Cholmondeley brought up the child as his ward, which made the Prince and several others regard him as the natural father; other possible candidates include Charles William Wyndham, a politician, and George Selwyn, a member of parliament.

In 1784, George introduced Grace to Louis Philippe II, Duke of Orléans, a well-known womanizer with several illegitimate children. This didn’t deter Grace one bit and by 1786 she had a permanent residence in Paris, becoming one of his recognized mistresses. He also granted her a home on the Rue Miromesnil and property in Meudon. Grace carried on other affairs during this time, her conquests including the Duke de Fitz-James and the Prince of Conde.

Much about Grace’s life is known through her memoirs, though they contain several inconsistencies. Her account is one of the best in the English language; she witnessed the September Massacres and the body of the Princess de Lamballe being carried through the streets. It is now believed she acted as a spy between George in England and Louis in France, using letters sent to her daughter. Grace risked her life many times to assist and hide aristocrats being pursued by the Revolutionary government; despite her home being frequently searched (her Royalist sympathies were well known). On one occasion, which followed the Assault on the Tuileries Palace, Grace physically carried the injured Marquis de Champcenetz to her home, hiding him between the mattresses on her bed while feigning illness. She also arranged for false travel documents to be made for those who wished to escape.

In early 1793, Grace was arrested and imprisoned, spending the rest of The Terror being bounced between various prisons. She wrote about the horrific conditions she saw, including illness and violent coercion. Though many of her friends perished (including her former lover, Louis), Grace avoided death and was released. She died a wealthy woman following a prolonged illness in Ville d’Avray in Paris and is buried in the Père Lachaise Cemetery.

The Black Book Text 14: THE INFERNAL REBIRTH

What is presented here is a Working of Satanic Self-Initiation, an act of Infernal Rebirth into the path of Theistic Satanism.
Upon the Altar in addition to the usual implements should be an Infernal pendant of the Neophyte’s choosing (bearing a symbol sacred to Satan, ideally the Inverted Cross or Pentagram), the Black Robe of the Initiate, the Infernal Oath written on parchment and parchment bearing symbols of the religions of the lie. There should also be an additional red candle to represent the pending Initiate. The Infernal Neophyte stands before the Altar naked and begins by reciting the following:

“This night before the Sacred Altar of Our Lord Satan I stand prepared to give myself physically, mentally and Spiritually to my Father, Lord Satan and my Dark Mother Lilith … to become a Satanic Initiate of the Infernal Path and Apostle  of the Dark Mysteries of the Black Magickal Arts … my mind is prepared to open the Inner Gate of Hell eternally … my flesh given to the service of the One True Lord Satan and the Infernal Queen Lilith … my Soul darkened and imbued with desire to become at one with the Demonic Beings of the Shadow Kingdom of Hell … from which I gestated by the Seed of the Infernal Father and the Black Womb of Lilith as all in creation is gestated!”

The Neophyte lights the Red Initiatory Candle upon the Altar and continues:

“I ignite this flame as the Black Flame of Our Lord Satan has become ignited within me … its flame reflects the mind which seeks the dark illumination of the Infernal … its heat mirrors the desire which traverses the core of my being to know of the Dark Arts and of the pain and pleasure which is found in the Unholy Grail’s Mysteries … it symbolises this night of Infernal Rebirth into the Abyss of my true Father’s Kingdom … the Kingdom of Shadows … the genesis of my journey through the Gates of Hell … the birth of the isolate self free from the shackles of the inane and the mundane creed of the false Fathers … “

The Neophyte takes up the parchment from the Altar which is inscribed with the symbols of repression, the cross of the Nazarene, the pallid Star of David and other symbols of the power of the false light and continues:

“These are the symbols of living death … the symbolic shackles which bind the living creature from its true nature and raw primal power … the symbols of imprisonment and tyranny … of orthodoxy and stagnation … I renounce each and every one of them, banish their influence from my mind, their manacles from my Soul … I refute the heavenly Father Yahweh and His Angelic Horde … I rebuke the foul teachings of the pale Nazarene … vanquish the Father of Misogyny Allah … deny the laws of the Kingdoms of the Light which blinds and binds the essence of spirit and the pleasures of the flesh!”

The Neophyte lights the parchment and lets it start to burn before dropping it into an Altar bowl saying:

“My life journey that was is ended that I may be reborn this night … may the sojourn I now undertake into the Kingdom of Hell burn like the fires of the Infernal and reduce the impotent faiths of the of the false Gods to ashes … for I rise in power from the ashes of my former self prepared and willing as an Acolyte of the Satanic Mysteries!“

The Neophyte now Meditates on the absolute division of the self from the tendrils of light, Meditates upon the opening of the inner self, the inner mind to the encroaching forces of Hell and ever opening Doorway into the Abyss, vanquishes the old self to embrace the new Infernal Soul born in flesh.
When ready the Neophyte takes up the Black Oath saying:

“Hear now my Vow … hear now My Father Satan the words of the Black Oath, of my Oath … know that they shall be spoken with truth, desire and conviction … with the fervent alliance of the Black Acolyte of which I seek to become!”

The Initiate now pauses briefly before reciting the Black Oath, concentrating on the power held within it, for the it is an Oath, a Pact, a Contract that binds the mind and body of the Practitioner to Satan and all of the Demonic Hierarchy for the rest of their living years.  It also binds their Soul to Satan and His Legion for eternity, throughout incarnations and within the realms journeyed in between lives upon the realm of flesh ~ the Black Oath is in truth a Key to open the Inner Gate within the self permanently and become at one always with the Infernal!
The Neophyte now recites aloud the Black Oath:

“I (Birth Name) arrive before the Sacrosanct Altar of Our Lord Satan and Our Lady Lilith this night reborn … the death of my former self where any weakness of influence from the pale Gods remained is undertaken … it is sanctioned by deepest will of myself that I may become at one with the forces of Hell … and the Demonic Entities which reside there … I rise from the shade of my own passing … I am reborn isolate … I rise anew to enter into the darkest realms of myself and pass the Inner Gate of Hell to take my place in the spheres of the other … within the Dominions of Darkness which unite the world of flesh with the Kingdom of Shadows … the forces of the Light, the Prophets and Gods of the Light are as enemies to me … and I embrace the title of Adversary of the religions that honour their foul creeds … I am born into the Dark Kindred of Satan’s Children … I have walked into the shadows of my own mind and through the Inner Gate to stand at the threshold of Hell … I vow this night to become an Initiate of the Mysteries of Satanic Black Magick … a Disciple of the deepest Infernal Workings of Our Lord Satan … and as Kindred to my Brothers and Sisters of the Infernal Fold upon Earth and to the Spirits of the Demonic that reside in Hell … I cast aside the weakness thrust on humanity by the Wardens of the false Faiths … and embrace only the path of wrath, lust, creation, carnal lust, primal will and Infernal exaltation … my body is a doorway to the Infernal, my mind a gateway to the Demonic … my Soul the portal by which the Satanic may enter this world … this night I take the name (Infernal Name), for it is the Name symbolic of my Infernal Rebirth and shall be the name by which I am known by to those of my Infernal and Demonic Kindred … and upon this name, upon this life, upon the bloodline that flows through my body and the incarnations I have yet to travel I swear that my dedication now lies only with Our Lord Satan and those of the Infernal … I vow with sincerity and truth that if I ever betray this Oath that I hope and understand that the Infernal powers that are now my allies will turn on me with the wrath of Hell itself … I take this - the Black Oath - as a Pact of my union with Satan … as a contract with the Infernal Spirits of Hell … as an unyielding bond with my Infernal Mother Lilith … for it is not just an Oath that I commit to this night … it is a Key I accept that will lead me into the very depths of Hell … Manifestum In Nomine Satanas … Ave Lilith! … Ave Satanas!”

The Initiate now signs the Black Oath with their Birth Name and Infernal Name and then takes a blade and cutting open their flesh allows their blood to fall onto the Oath saying:

“By the blood of my lifeline and the essence of my Soul do I consecrate this the Black Oath and forever bind myself to Satan and His ineffable Hierarchy of Hell!”

The new Initiate now dons the Black Ritual Vestment and takes the pendant from the Altar and places it around their neck, following this they recite the following:

“I stand reborn before the Altar of the My Infernal Father Satan, bearing the Name (Infernal Name) … from this night forth my destiny shall take me beyond the Gates of Hell and I shall walk this Earth and the planes beyond it as the Satanic Acolyte of the Black Magickal Arts … Devotee of the Infernal Legion and Kin to the mortal Fraternity of Hell here in this World … for the Black Oath has been taken and the Key of Satan’s power accepted to unlock the Infernal within me …  Ave Lilith! … Ave Satanas!”

The red candle is left to burn and is afterwards placed in a small wooden box or black pouch along with the Infernal Oath, this is kept by the Initiate and should be buried with them at death.

The Devil’s Grimoire Text 13:   THE SELF-INITIATION OF THE SATANIC WITCH

Here before you is - in truth - the first Ritual step of the Classical Satanic Witch undertaking the journey upon the dark path of the Infernal  -I-  the ceremonial active step to give the self mind, body and soul to the Infernal Lord, the Devil  -I-
Upon the Altar in addition to the usual implements should be an Infernal pendant of the Neophyte’s choosing (bearing a symbol sacred to Satan, ideally the Inverted Cross or Pentagram), the Black Robe of the Initiate, the Infernal Oath written on parchment and parchment bearing symbols of the religions of the light -I-   there should also be an additional red candle to represent the Initiate  -I- following the Conjuring Of  The Dominion Of Shadows the  Infernal Neophyte shall stand before the Altar naked and begin the dedication of the self into the Creed of Satanic Witchcraft by reciting the opening lines as follows:

“This night before the Sacred Black Altar of the Devil, Our Lord Satan  -I-   I stand prepared to give myself physically, mentally and Spiritually into the true Fraternity of Hell  -I-  to become a Satanic Witch of the Ancient Path of the Unholy  -I-   and Infernal Initiate of the Dark Mysteries of the Black Arts  -I-  my mind is open to the power and wisdom of Hell  -I-  my flesh given to the service of the One True Lord Satan and the Infernal Queen Lilith … my Soul darkened and imbued with desire to become at one with the Demonic Beings of the Kingdom of Shadows  -I-  from which I gestated by the Seed of the Infernal Father and the Black Womb of Lilith!”

“I ignite this flame as the Black Flame of Our Lord Satan has become ignited within me  -I-  its flame reflects the mind which seeks the dark illumination of the Inferna  -I-   its heat mirrors the desire which traverses the core of my being to know of the Dark Arts of Black Magick and of the pain and pleasure which is found in the Unholy Grail’s Mysteries  -I-  it symbolises the night of Infernal Rebirth into the Abyss of my true Father’s Kingdom  -I-  the Kingdom of Shadows  -I-  the genesis of my journey through the Gates of Hell  -I-  the birth of the isolate self free from the shackles of the inane and the mundane creed of the false Fathers!“

The Neophyte shall now take up the parchment from the Altar which is inscribed with the symbols of repression, the cross of the Nazarene, the pallid Star of David and other symbols of the power of the false light and continues:

“These are the symbols of living death  -I-  the symbols of banal oppression of the primal laws  -I-  the symbolic shackles which bind the living creature from its true nature and raw primal power  -I-  the symbols of imprisonment and tyranny  -I-  of orthodoxy and stagnation … I renounce each and every one of them, banish their influence from my mind, their manacles from my Soul  -I-  I refute the heavenly Father Yahweh and His Angelic Horde  -I-  I rebuke the foul teachings of the pale Nazarene  -I-  vanquish the Father of Misogyny Allah  -I- deny the laws of the Kingdoms of the Light which blinds and binds the essence of spirit and the pleasures of the flesh!”

Let the Neophyte now light the parchment and let it start to burn before dropping it into an Altar bowl, as they watch the pale symbols of stagnation succumb to the flames they shall then say:

“My life journey as ended as it was and is to be reborn this night  -I-  may the sojourn I now undertake into the Kingdom of Hell burn like the fires of the Infernal and reduce the impotent faiths of the of the false Gods to ashes!“

“Hear now my Vow Grand Devil of the Kingdom of Shadows  -I-  hear now My Father Satan the words of my Oath  -I-  know that they shall be spoken with truth, desire and conviction  -I-  with the fervent alliance of the Black Acolyte and Satanic Witch that I seek to become!”

The Initiate will now kneel before the Altar and pause briefly  -I-  preparing themselves mentally  -I- absorbing the importance of the Oath they are about to take and its meaning on their destiny before reciting The Infernal Oath aloud:

“I (Birth Name) arrive before the Black Altar of Our Lord Satan and Our Lady Lilith this night reborn  -I-  the death of my former self where any weakness of influence from the pale Gods remained is undertaken  -I-  fulfilled and celebrated I am reborn from the ashes of my own passing  -I-  reborn isolate  -I-  I rise as the Lilin of the Black Womb rose  -I-  divided from the masses of the pallid Herd of the Sheep Gatherer, the Nazarene  -I-  born into the Black Kindred of the Infernal Brethren  -I-  arisen as the Satanic Witch of the Ancient Lineage and emerging from the pale waters of stagnation as the Black Apostle of Hell, an Initiate of the Satanic Arts and Mysteries  -I-  as a devoted Son/Daughter of the one true Lord Satan, the Devil, the King of Hell  -I-  I shed all shackles of false morality, fear and weakness  -I-  doubt is banished  -I-  I uphold the Tenets of lust, wrath, desire, strength, will and the eternal quest for knowledge and experience  -I-  I Vow to gain knowledge of the Infernal Arts of Black Magick and utilize them to exalt my own existence and further the Great Work of  the Demonic Legion  -I-  I decree that I shall gestate within me the Black Flame and set free the Dark Soul which resides within forged by the hands of the Demons of Hell  -I-  that the pleasures of the flesh, the gifts of the Earth, the knowledge of the Satanic Mysteries and ascension to Infernal Adepthood shall be my objectives and shall be embraced without reservation  -I-  that I shall remain a dedicated Disciple and true Satanic Explorer of the Black Arts always  -I-  this night I Vow upon the essence of my life and those lives which are yet to manifest that I am of the Infernal Mortal Kindred  -I-  a true Son/Daughter of Our Lord Satan and Our Lady Lilith  -I-  Brother/Sister in allegiance to the Infernal Legion of Hell  -I-  and devoted Initiate of the Satanic Kindred  -I-  I take this night the Infernal Name (Satanic Witch Name) and pledge my allegiance to Our Lord the Devil, the Dark Queen Lilith  -I-  and the Grand Demons of Hell  -I-  may the Gates of Hell be open to me and the Key of entrance bestowed by Agaliarept my trusted to my hand  -I-  that within life and death I may stand before the Black Throne of the Father of Hell  -I-  and receive His Mark and the Blessing of His Eternal Darkness  -I-  may the flame that guides me now burn the flesh from my being should I betray this Oath or those who are true Brothers and Sisters to me within the Unholy Kindred  -I-  Manifestum In Nominie Diabolus!”

The Initiate will now rise to a standing position again and sign the Infernal Oath with their Birth Name and Satanic Name and then takes a blade and cut open their flesh  -I-  let the blood be allowed to fall onto the Oath  before issuing the follwoing:

“By the blood of my lifeline and the essence of my Soul do I consecrate this Oath and forever bind myself to Satan and His ineffable Hierarchy within Hell!”

“I stand reborn before the Altar of the My Infernal Father, bearing the Name (Satanic Witch Name)  -I-  from this night forth my destiny shall take me beyond the Gates of Hell and I shall walk this Earth and the planes beyond it as the Satanic Acolyte of the Arts of Black Magick … as a Devotee of the Infernal Legion and Kin to the mortal Fraternity of Hell here in this World of which Our Lord the Devil is True Master  -I-  Manifestum In Nomine Diabolus!”

The Initiate shall now reside for a while in silent meditation on that which has passed before ending the Working by Departing The Dominion Of Shadows  -I- The red candle is left to burn and is afterwards placed in a small wooden box or black pouch along with the Infernal Oath, this is kept by the Initiate and should be buried with them at death.
