She is ordained Priestess of E.G.C. You may know her from her from rather unusual passion for finances in O.T.O., personal fundraising project Maroton (she ran Paris Marathon to raise money for Polish branch of the Order) or just a big smile that she is famous for.

  • Sr. Ania, Br. Bjorn and Sr. Vera - The fiery trio comprised of Bjorn, Vera and Ania aims to perform the Fire Ritual invoking Ra-Hoor-Khuit based on the principle of Liber Samekh with an Enochian twist. These three Officers will display an intense intertwined performance and bring the efforts to culmination by the consummation of the Eucharist. The sensory stimulation provoked by the Ritual, finally enflamed by the Sacrament instigates a blazing divinity within the hearts of the Congregants; and the trio performing guarantees a good time, mostly backed by their extensive magical backgrounds. Some notable sources describe Bjorn Loken as “being the most handsome Bishop of Scandinavia.” Ania Orzech on the other hand is undoubtedly a dynamic force of nature with a skillset in high demand. Vera Nikolich is a regular lass with a knack for Magick and dramatics. All three of them get things done, their fiery features being evident. 

  • Bjorn Loken has been a member of the OTO for 22 years. He is a Bishop from Norway with a boisterous temperament of a vivacious Viking.  Bjorn has a vast practical experience in the matters of Magick combining various sources and systems, however, one of his most prominent skills is the ability to make a mean dry martini.
