"The Vampire Legacy Ankh is the sigil which represents the culture, traditions and philosophy of the Vampire World as defined by master fangsmith and occult author Father Sebastiaan’s book “Vampire Virtues; The Red Veils.” This precious artifact proudly worn discretely in public and openly in ceremony by both Living Vampires and Black Swans.  The Legacy Ankh was consecrated to symbolize the “The Red Veils” which are power words of the Vampyres Mysteries which include;  Elegance, Mystery, Romance, Transhumanism, Immortality, Primal Nature, Seduction, Magic, and Glamour.

The Historical Ankh

The ankh, or in Latin the crux ansata (cross with a handle), was originally the Egyptian hieroglyph which meant "life". Many ancient Egyptian artworks, especially funerary art, depict gods and pharaohs bearing this symbol. The ankh was also associated with Osiris, the god of death and rebirth, and ankhs were often placed with mummies in order to symbolically convey the gift of immortality. Over time the ankh came to symbolize immortality and can even be seen as a key to unlock the gates of death. The Rosicrucians and members of Hermetic orders often use this symbol in their rituals. The Coptic Christians, as well, employed it as a symbol of life after death. Ankhs incorporating mirrors into their design have sometimes been used to symbolize perception of the subtle reality. The bladed ankh first surfaced in popular culture in the 1983 film The Hunger, directed by Tony Scott and based on the novel by Whitley Strieber, who also, significantly, wrote the novel Communion. 

Origins of the Vampire Legacy Ankh

With its historical symbolism, cultural significance, and esoteric nature, the ankh was the obvious symbol for the Vampyre Culture & Philosophy. In 1996, Master Metal Manipulator Drennan was commissioned by Father Sebastiaan to make an exclusive version of a bladed ankh to represent the Mysteries and Sabretooth Clan and further the Vampire World. Thus was born the Vampire Legacy Ankh, the most recognized international symbol in the Vampire World. Since there are so many imitators, the Legacy Ankh is legally copyrighted and trademarked by Father Sebastiaan in order to protect it and to avoid any misuse of the symbol. We wish to make it clear that this particular scimitar-bladed ankh is the exclusive symbol of Vampires who find power in The Red Veils, and should be recognized and respected as such."
