Oblier the Jailer
Oblier the Jailor is a minor demigod that was first worshiped in the early 16th century during the Spanish Inquisition. His early followers were those held prisoner for heresy in the Languedoc region of France. His followers were promised a reversal against their captors and dominance over them when Oblier eventually crossed into this world. The cult dedicated to him always remained very small and obscure maintaining secrecy at all costs. It has been said, although it is unsubstantiated, that his followers ritually captured and held unsuspecting victims captive for extended periods of time.
Aleister Crowley was said to have participated in several ceremonies dedicated to Oblier at Thelema Abbey as well as abandoned jails as late as 1921. It was prophesied by the occultist that, ‘Oblier will return When the dungeons and sanitariums are filled to brimming with the fettered hands of those both cruel and innocent.’ Unfortunately, most of his writings on the subject are lost and presumed destroyed. In the early 20th century Sir James Tobin briefly toured prisons in Northern Spain studying mysterious relics found that were presumed to be dedicated to the deity, but he died before he completed his investigation. No substantial following has been maintained since 1928, and most of the original dogma and mythos of Oblier are long forgotten.
