the occult of red

baron samedi · loa of the dead 

He is the head of the Guédé family of Loa, or an aspect of them, or possibly their spiritual father. “Samedi” means “Saturday” in French. His wife is the Loa Maman Brigitte. He is usually depicted with a top hat, black tuxedo (dinner-jacket), dark glasses, and cotton plugs in the nostrils, as if to resemble a corpse dressed and prepared for burial in the Haitian style. He has a white, frequently skull-like face (or actually has a skull for a face), and speaks in a nasal voice. He is noted for disruption, obscenity, debauchery, and having a particular fondness for tobacco and rum. Additionally, he is the Loa of resurrection, and in the latter capacity he is often called upon for healing by those near or approaching death, as it is only Baron who can accept an individual into the realm of the dead.

So uhhhh has anyone pointed out yet…

Remember how if you ask about Robert’s hand tattoo, he gets cold and stops talking?

This hand tattoo? Sorry if the pic is small

And if you’ve heard of Joseph’s secret cult ending (which isn’t in the game btw), then you’ve probably seen this picture

See that symbol in the back? That red, occult symbol?

What does that look like hm?

Robert was in Joseph’s cult

The lesson is simple, pour all of your blood into Her Grail, by sacrificing everything you will no longer be who you once thought you were, but you will have won the Universe. This is the path of the hardcore and holy. There is nothing more to it. If you have a more traditional magickal mindset, this can be taken as the ultimate version of Eliphas Lévi’s four virtues, To Know, To Will, To Dare, and To Keep Silent. You may want to note that in your diary, it is worth a meditation or two. In this text and in my life I am pouring all I am into the Cup. It is your choice how or whether to let your own blood. The succinct words of Liber Cheth may prove an admirable guide for you.
