Ninzuwu researcher and writer Messiah’el Bey is a direct descendant of Anne of Kiev and was born in Long Island, New York. He has been a student of religious and spiritual sciences from an early age. Bey is widely known for his work as an alchemist, artist, poet, martial artist, and musician, that is popularly recognized under the pseudonym and trademark Warlock Asylum.

Among his many literary accomplishments, Warlock Asylum was the first to uncover the connections between the comic book hero Batman and the Mayan deity Camazotz (original article), a comparative analysis that many succeeding writers have only mimicked.  He has also solved the infamous Japanese ufo mystery of Utsuro-Bune (original article), another subject that Bey is often cited by educational resources.

Bey has written over ten books and many of his works are available on Amazon (Warlock Asylum Amazon Page). He holds membership in The Gypsy Lore Society and Liverpool University Press. Most notably, Warlock Asylum became a household name in the alchemical world primarily because of his huge contributions to Mesopotamian and Sumerian religious studies and has also written extensively on the cult of Santa Muerte. Bey’s recent book on the subject titled Santa Muerte: The Gnostic Bible of Holy Death was listed by Romance University as among the Top 15 Gnostic Bibles for 2022.

Bey is one of the few alchemists that has explored and written about the Mesopotamian faith of DurAnKi, which existed long before the plight of modern religion. He has also written many essays about Shinto spiritualism.
