Aset Ka

Dark Mark
The Dark Mark

The Kemetic Order of Aset Ka is a spiritual society and metaphysical order of mysteries, which vindicates to be founded in Kemet by an entity known as Aset, during a time they call the Sep Tepy. The word Kemet means Black Land in Ancient Egyptian, referring to the lands of Egypt itself, in the shores of the Nile; while Sep Tepy means First Time, a Kemetic terminology to a supposedly golden era of their civilization, an ancient primordial timeframe that predates Dynastic Egypt.

The Order, as it is commonly referred, is one of the most influential Kemetic Orders, as well as vampiric movements, inside the occult underground in Europe, especially in the Iberian Peninsula.

With its headquarters based in the city of Oporto, Portugal, Aset Ka is known for its traditional approach to magick and vampirism, studying a very different variety of occult arts, philosophies, and practices.

Its tradition is connected with the Left Hand Path, Black Magic and Dark Occultism, but ultimately based on Egyptian Magick, practicing mystical Vampirism and studying chaos magick, as well as different forms of High Magick, energy work and rituals, considered highly elite in the wide occult studies spectrum.

Being a Kemetic Order, they trace their roots back to Ancient Egypt, culture where they take many of their philosophical and spiritual works, as well as base magical system, religion and symbolism.

The name Aset Ka is transliterated from Ancient Egyptian, and is composed of two different words:

According to the Order, their ranks and castes are only accessible to those who are loyal and true, without any direct definition of what that might imply, but stating quite clearly that for everyone else, the Order will never be real, making reference to the traditional secrecy of their inner knowledge and workings.

"The Order of Aset Ka is an elitist secretive society. The essence and knowledge behind the Aset Ka is not found in buildings, objects or common books. Its mysteries are only unveiled to the worthy and its doors only open for the ones who are loyal and true. For everyone else... the Order will never exist."

Asetianism: The Tradition

The Order of Aset Ka holds a tradition that is the magickal and spiritual system followed by the Asetians. Asetianism, the sacred mystical tradition of the Aset Ka, is a profound system of dark and predatory spirituality, based on enlightenment, transformation and evolution of the soul.

The Order vindicated Asetianism to be one of the first systems of High Magick in the history of mankind, whose practices date all the way back to Ancient Egypt and were influent even before the Dynastic Periods.

"Development and enlightenment is a slow and enduring process of the Asetian journey through life. This metaphysical initiation is a system of transmutation. By this pure and deep change, it is meant that the Asetian achieves to alter in form, appearance and nature, which is a manifestation of the force of the Violet Flame itself. This transmutation, deeply connected with the vampiric birth, represents the alchemical nature of the Asetian soul, ever changing and eternal. According to this, we can establish the Asetians as the alchemists of the soul, creators and destroyers, catalysts of change and evolution, with the power to transform lead into gold. Asetians are the givers of life, the pillars of the subtle existence, owners of the breath of immortality."
- Asetian Bible, Public Version, 2007

Energy being the central backbone of the whole tradition, there is of major importance within its practices the knowledge of magickal ritual practices, as well as the mastery of energy work, meditation and past-life research. The concept of reincarnation fits in every piece of the Asetian tradition. The full framework behind the Asetian religion resides in the belief on reincarnation. Because it is through this cycle of life, death and rebirth that the initiate conquers true immortality of his soul, being this concept of immortality also a central theme around the Order's practices. With this in mind, the Asetians strive for perfecting themselves over the ages, in an ever changing environment, roaming our reality in the shadows of societies and mankind. Spiritual evolution is their highest goal, and mystical knowledge the treasure they profess to protect.

Their magickal practices include many influences, from the ancient Egyptian High magick, passing through medieval traditional witchcraft and oriental energetic practices to more contemporary ceremonial magick perpetuated by people like Aleister Crowley and Liliana Zyn.
The Asetians also give high importance to the study and development of magickal theories and the occult, as well as intense study of many mystery schools. They see magick as something not opposed to science, but as fields of knowledge that can healthy interact. Because of this, several members of the Aset Ka are actually traditional scientists, according to what is stated on the introductions of the Asetian Bible.

They have a complex system of numerology and magickal numbers, in a tradition highly connected to symbolism and sigilization. To an Asetian, the 7 is the most sacred number, meaning immortality and everlastingness.

Vampirism: Dark Kiss, Awakening and Immortality

The Order vindicates that Asetianism is the first spiritual system of vampirism in history, created by vampires. And although there are many widespread cults concerning the archetype of the vampire, Asetianism is the only organized religion for vampires to date.

"The vampires of the House of Aset, the Order of Aset Ka, are not vampires from fiction or myth, nor are they new-age psychic vampires alike. They belong to a very specific metaphysical breed, or otherkin bloodline, born thousands of years ago. Long dead and reborn, in an ever-changing world, their souls linger forever and, in silence, they walk among us."
- Asetian Bible, Public Version, 2007

In an Order highly connected to vampirism and magick, Aset Ka members are known for taking very seriously their actions and beliefs.
According to some of their own writings, they believe that as vampires, manipulating and drawing vital energy from others or by the consumption of living blood from humans (willing donors, or not) allows for their powers to manifest. It is said that these powers include actions like energy manipulation, magickal attacks, psychic abilities and others. But it is not claimed that they need those drains, or vampiric attacks, in order to keep themselves alive or immortal like in the vampire myths. Their concept of immortality goes far deeper than death of the flesh, being related to their belief that an Asetian soul, unlike a human being, is truly immortal.

"Asetians are not passive beings in a changing world. They impose themselves above that world and their forces, conquering it with their own divine spark. Asetianism is about finding the divine but also how to fully comprehend the sacredness of the divinity within."
- Aset Ka Official Website

According to the Asetian mythology, the Asetians are a vampiric bloodline that started in Ancient Egypt by Aset, that conceived three sacred children out of her essence. This is the reason as why they are known as the Children of Aset, and vindicate to be the eldest vampiric bloodline alive.

As it is told in the Asetian Bible, following Aset's three children, an empire was forged in secret, that allowed for the spread of the Asetian bloodline. The Elder vampires would have the powers to spiritually transform a human being into an Asetian, by an initiatory magickal procedure that the Asetians called the Dark Kiss, whose details are not fully unveiled even in the Order's own public works. Certainly one of the magickal rituals, or initiatory techniques, more surrounded in secrecy around the occult panorama.

After the dramatic experience that is the Dark Kiss, the initiate is said to undergo a process of spiritual transmutation, known as the Awakening. During this time, it is supposed for his full life, mind and soul to be reborn, into a new immortal vampiric being: an Asetian. The Awakening is believed to be an evolutionary step in the life of an Asetian, that undergoes that process of transformation in every life, representing the phase where they grow aware of their true nature and find their path within the Aset Ka.

"This acceptance of darkness and light is a central point in the Asetian tradition, understanding that only through the acknowledgement of these two forces combined inside every one of us and the cooperation and balance between them, can allow a true fulfillment of the individual as a whole, being complete. Someone that only promotes light, peace, harmony and good feelings, saying he never feels anger or hate and that there are no bad feelings inside his heart, is not complete. He is simply blocking part of himself and not admitting a whole other side of his nature, not fully expressing his own reality and not completely knowing himself, repressing many impulses, thoughts and feelings, resulting in an ultimately intolerant, unbalanced and incomplete being. This also applies to anyone that only promotes violence, anger and darkness, without any embrace of the other side present in their own nature."
- Asetian Bible, Public Version, 2007


Aset Ka uses an internal hierarchical structure system. Based on knowledge, influence and power inside the Order casts, it organizes in several different initiatory levels, who's nature is not known outside of the Order itself. But a very different concept than Aset Ka's hierarchical structure is what they call Lineages. Lineages in this sense is a strictly Asetian definition and refers to the three kinds of Asetians that can exist within the Asetian bloodline. The three Lineages are a great mystery within the Aset Ka teachings and they refer not only to the three ways in which an Asetian soul can evolve spiritually after Awakening, as well as they represent highly powerful metaphysical archetypes. Although detailedly addressed in the Asetian Bible, the names of the Lineages are known as:

"These demigods were not human, but were not so different from them either, and unlike their mother, they would not leave the physical realm at the end of the Sep Tepy. And so they would remain here, as their own mother’s representatives, always evolving, forever changing and adapting to the new realities, as societies change and shift. They soon gathered followers and allies, to which they passed knowledge and transformed their Ba, like the sacred kiss that Aset once gave to them, long time before, and in this way giving birth to a whole new spiritual race in the shadows of this world. They would be known as the Asetians."
- Asetian Bible, Public Version, 2007

However, the whole Order's existence and practices are surrounded by secrecy, even inside their own closed structure. One of the main pillars of Aset Ka is their rigid rules and policies, common to other dark orders, where no failure or weakness is ever accepted, and where there are no second chances given. Membership is, of course, only possible by direct invitation from the Order's higher powers.

Dark Mark

The Dark Mark (see image above) is a concept that members of the Aset Ka use in a magickal sense, being known as a magickal seal or sigil engraved on the skin of the members' wrist.

What at first look might seem like a regular tattoo, the Order's Dark Mark is engraved according to old traditions and secret rituals of power. According to their teachings, the sigil was designed by Aset herself, more than 8000 years ago, and is used in some sort of secret initiation.

The Mark is not to be used by all the members from the Order, but only by those of the bloodline of Aset, the Asetians, and never by low ranked initiates.

"To their secret and silent group Aset called Aset Ka, as a direct symbol of their true origins – the Essence of Isis, the Ka of Aset. And so She said and marked in blood, that those loyal to Her, would be forever loyal to them, because they were one. In Her Dark Kiss She engraved Her holy sigil deep in their very souls, that would forever be their Asetian Mark, and they would do the same to their followers."
- Asetian Bible, Public Version, 2007

Theories have been developed on Ordem Peninsular's former teacher Diana Morais essays about Left hand path secret societies, and in some of the vampire discussion lectures held by Liliana Zyn herself. By these theories, the concept of dark mark in JK Rowling's novels, used by death eaters, is based on the ones used by the Aset Ka, since Rowling have lived and teach English in the city of Oporto when started writing the Harry Potter books, it is possible that she have been in contact with some members of the Order during that period.

While the real usage of the Dark Mark by the Order members is not entirely known, people speculate about some metaphysical form of contact in danger situations, and as a definitive sacred mark of their kin, as it is referred by Mater, Iuliana (Aug. 17, 2002). Encantamentos Nivel 3. Publicações Ordem Peninsular, p. 524.

Imperial Guard

Imperial Guard is the common name for the military arm of the Aset Ka, also referred to as the special forces or secret services of the Asetian Empire.

The IG is the activist sect of the Higher Order, the Aset Ka, from which some of the field work is applied. It is speculated that some of the most evil acts, inhumane ideals and unmoral work from the Order are produced by this sect.

By this, it is not to be assumed that all Aset Ka members are to be feared, nor that from the whole Imperial Guard sect is to be expected aggressive behaviours. Actually, a very large number of Aset Ka members, priesthood and Masters do not promote violence, even though caution is expected when to be approached.

Important is to note that the Imperial Guard is an integer part of Aset Ka, and controlled by it. There is no IG outside of the Order nor is it independent from it. It's just a very specific department that gained it's notability from others by his polemic and elitist positions inside the Order's structure.

Most of the notability of the Aset Ka's Imperial Guard occurred during the times of Ancient Egypt, according to their own sources, and were highly active in a series of confrontations and events that are known within the Order as the Epic Wars. During this time, the Imperial Guard represented Aset's personal guard, that was late to become the Order's most feared militia.

Although producing private and independent publications for several years, commonly only accessible to inner circles of the Order, in 2007 the Order has broke their code of silence in a never before seen move by the Asetian world. The Aset Ka gathered several pieces of until then highly secret metaphysical material, especially of theological and spiritual nature, and published them in a volume of sacred words. This book, entitled Asetian Bible, is a breakthrough in terms of history, in what comes to publically and officially published material on vampirism, particularly on Asetianism.

"Asetianism promotes understanding on a raw level. In every incarnation, the Asetian fights to achieve self-realization. This is a slow and constant process of discovery, growth and adaptation. The constant seek and conquering of his goals, in the life of an Asetian, promotes a dynamic expansion of his consciousness, in a permanent cycle of rebirth. The profound self-realization that the Asetian seeks empowers him with joy and happiness. These feelings of happiness and profound inner peace are not only promoted through the evolution of the Self and in the realization found from it, but also is a deep feeling that awaits behind the void to those that, like the Children of Aset, have felt the sacredness of the divine spark. Asetians have tasted the nectar of immortality. They are beings of energy, empowered with the essence of the Violet Flame. They celebrate life, and live it deeply. Asetianism is about loving Aset, unconditionally embracing life and honoring the divine within."
- Asetian Bible, Public Version, 2007

The Public Version of the Asetian Bible was published directly by the Aset Ka, imposing themselves as an official publisher from Portugal. Although many high names of the Order are said to be part of the project that brought this book to life, the definitive author of the published work is Luis Marques. A Portuguese writer of high credentials inside of the Order's structure and considered one of the world's leading specialists in Asetian knowledge.

The tome of the book is philosophic, sometimes dramatic, and expresses the Asetian spirituality in magickal way, very tipical of the Asetian nature, being a definitive reference to scholars on vampirism and the occult or to anyone simply interested in knowing more about the Order, the Asetian bloodline, their metaphysical practices or their Ancient Egyptian spiritual tradition.
