Messiah’el Bey, a direct descendant of Anne van Kiev and was born in Long Island, New York, and has been a student of religious and spiritual sciences from an early age. He 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 uncovered the infamous Japanese ufo mystery of Utsuro-Bune (original article), another subject that Bey is often cited by educational resources. Most notably, Warlock Asylum became a household name in the alchemical world primarily because of his huge contributions to Sumerian religious studies. His spiritual insights have often been petitioned by celebrities and governmental authorities.
Bey is one of the few Afro-Romani spiritualists that still practices and is fully bonded into the Ancient Mesopotamian faith of Dur.An.Ki, which existed long before the plight of modern religion. Bey is also an instructor in Shinto studies and its extensive teaching as expounded upon in the Art of Ninzuwu, a topic of which he has written numerous books. Bey conducts workshops and uses his artistic abilities to help educate others about Ninzuwu culture, of which he claims heritage. Bey currently lives with his family in New York City.
