Modern sects are the product of divergent interpretations, many bearing a mere superficial resemblance to their ancient progenitor cult. Most unexpected, especially among early scholars of Sarkicism such as myself, are the seemingly benevolent intentions of its founders. The road to hell, it is often said, is paved with good intentions - an aphorism the Foundation must always keep close in mind, for despite the eons between us, we gaze into that very same abyss.

And like the ancient Sarkites, we have found it full of monsters.
~ Dr. Judith Low from "GoI Field Guide".
There is power in the Flesh, Ion roared to those who understood…and it is for you to harness. Consume divinity. Become God.
~ Jeremy Miller-Yahontov's thoughts in "The Blood That Binds Us".

Sarkicism, also known as Nälkä, is a widespread religious/philosophical cult that worships flesh and disease. The cult serves as one of the major antagonists in the SCP-universe, often being seen by the Foundation as an apocalyptic threat.

The religion was originally founded by Grand Karcist Ion thousands of years ago, but has since then been fractured into several groups worldwide.

The central goal of Sarkicism is to achieve apotheosis for humanity, which could lead to SK-class dominance shift or even an XK-class end-of-the-world scenario. Due to this reason many organizations in the SCP-mythos, such as the SCP Foundation, the Global Occult Coalition, the Church of the Broken God, the Horizon InitiativeGRU Division "P", the Serpent's Hand and SAPPHIRE view them as an apocalyptic threat in the anomalous world. Several of the before mentioned groups have even banded together against this group.

Members of the cult are called Sarkites. They are the main antagonists in the "In Memoria, Adytum" canon.

History

Origin

Sarkicism was founded by Ion, a slave born into the Daevite civilization. He lived in the City-state of Adytum, where he eventually led a slave revolt against their Daevite-masters. During this revolt Ion showed great powers like the ability to manipulate organic flesh (both his own and that of others) and telekinesis. He was also able to give that power to his followers. The origin of these powers are linked to the primordial being Yaldabaoth (the creator of the universe in the beliefs of the Sarkites). Ion was also aided by four disciples called the Klavigar, who would later become saints.

After the defeat of the Daevites, Ion and his followers terraformed many of the occupied cities, including Adytum (the new capital city of the Sarkites), into more organic structures. With this started the golden age of the Sarkic civilization (now called the Sarkic Empire), and the Ion's belief started to spread over Eurasia, usually through conquest.

Occult War

When the Sarkic Empire arrived in the Mediterranean to establish colonies, where they would meet resistance by the Mekhanites (ancestor of the Church of the Broken God) and several other ancient civilizations. This led to a massive war between the two factions in which the Sarkites summoned massive abominations made of flesh to fight the anomalous machines of their enemies. 

The war killed twenty to thirty million people, and there were no real victors. The Sarkic empire fell and Grand Karcist Ion disappeared, while the Mekhanite-survivors would beomce the Church of the Broken God. 

The surviving Sarkites went into hiding to practice their faith, which led to creation of both the Proto-Sarkites and Neo-Sarkites.

Belief and Culture

Overview

The goal of becoming a godlike figure is key in the Sarkic faith, and the followers of the religion often engage in practice in acts such as ritual cannibalism, human sacrifice, corporeal augmentation, thaumaturgy, dimensional manipulation, sexual rites, reincarnation and dealings with cosmic entities. Despite these similarities, there are two main factions in the faith:

Proto-Sarkites

They often live in rural villages, away from civilization. Known Proto-Sarkite colonies exist in Russia, Finland and Romania. They are often poor, isolationist, technophobic and often hostile to outsiders, though they remain usually in their own territories. Different sects barley communicate with each other and each cult seems to exist in a "vacuum".

Proto-Sarkites generally value in humility and self-sacrifice for the good of the many. This leads to many willingly sacrifice themselves and be reborn and suffer for their faith. They usually see Grand Karcist Ion as a benevolent messiah who will one day return and grand humanity eternal life. They view Yaldabaoth as the creator of life, but also as a hostile force that needs to be stopped.

In some cases Proto-Sarkites have communicated with Foundation staff in a civilized manner. An example is the Vaśńa community located in northern Finland, where members of the community did conduct in willing interviews with Dr. Matthieu Desmarais.

Notable Proto-Sarkic Orders:

  • The Solomonari: A Proto-Sarkic settlement located in the Carpathian Basin since 1200 to 600 BCE.
  • The Church of the Red Harvest: A Proto-Sarkic settlement located in the Uralic Mountains. It was discovered by GRU Division "P" in 1936, and later by the Foundation after the dissolution of the USSR. The settlement is currently known by the Foundation as SCP-2133. This church is also known to practice a regeneration ritual, which resembles a "harvest", which leads to the church's name. The church is currently controlled by Karcist Alka, who resides in a series of tunnels beneath the Uralic Mountains.
  • The Vātula: A Proto-Sarkic order which resides in the rural & poor Indian states of Rajasthan, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir, Haryana, Punjab, and Gujarat, commanding fear and respect in these regions.
  • The Vaśńa: A Proto-Sarkic denomination located in Scandinavia. This version of Sarkicism was the subject of a study by Dr. Matthieu Desmarais, who learned much about their customs and their hostility toward the "gluttonous" Neo-Sarkites.
  • The Divoši/Sin-Eater's Church: A secret Proto-Sarkic order with its roots throughout Central Europe based in Prague. It is lead by Karcist Nakiakken, and follows Ion's ideal of jaka, or justice. This usually involves the "Judgement" of criminals who got away with their crimes, culminating into turning them into utterly inhuman creatures.
  • La Famille Natau/The Church of the Eternal Mother: A small Proto-Sarkic sect inhabiting the Louisiana Bayou. Members, known as the Manmas Natau, periodically develop spontaneous pregnancies, the majority of which are stillborn and used to "feed the kiraak". Foundation doctor Isabelle Beaumont attempted to discover more about this reclusive group, but was killed when they harvested her organs in an attempt to integrate her.

Neo-Sarkites

Neo-Sarkites are among society, unlike the Proto-Sarkites, often being in the world’s elite, such as politicians and leaders of industry. They aren’t technophobic and have usually access to immense resources, due to their high status. 

While the Proto-Sarkites belief in sacrificing oneself for the good of the many, the Neo-Sarkites belief in sacrificing many for the good of the one. They see Grand Karcist Ion as an example of what one person can achieve through dedication in the Sarkic practices, but are ready to overthrow him, if they gather the same amount of power.

Neo-Sarkites often gather in clandestine organisations, which usually resemble secret societies, social clubs or fraternal organisations. Their practices are often much more vile than those of Proto-Sarkites, involving murder, rape, pedophilia and other violent acts, involving unwilling practitioners. 

The Proto-Sarkites view the Neo-Sarkites in a negative light. Neo-Sarkites are often called “Gluttonous” and pretenders, and in their eyes they disrespect Grand Karcist Ion with their murder and rape.

A key proverb among the Neo-Sarkites is as following: "Desire is the measure of all things. Be unbound from moral tethers. Do as you will, to whom you will." 

Notable Neo-Sarkic Orders:

  • Adytum's Wake: The oldest North American Sarkic organization, founded around 1650. The organisation was presumably destroyed November 28, 1952 by the Global Occult Coalition, which led to the creation of SCP-2480. During this time the group was led by famous Neo-Sarkite is Cornelius P. Bodfel III, a wealthy millionaire industrialist who lived in Massachusetts. Bodfel led an organization called "Adytum's Wake", a collection of Neo-Sarkites that were members of affluent families, respected politicians, leaders of industry, and religious authority. Adytum would often gather at Bodfel-manor and engage in host orgies that included rape, pedophilia, ritual human sacrifice, and cannibalism. It is speculated that the cult is revived and currently led by Vivian Durant-Croÿ (president and CEO of the Durant Bodfel Financial Group), the wife of influential Hungarian businessman Alexander Croÿ.
  • The Hunter's Black Lodge: A Eastern European criminal cult that engages in extortion, murder, robbery, gambling, prostitution, human trafficking, drug trafficking, weapons trafficking, and underground fighting rings. GRU Division "P" tried to shut down it several times, but the organisation resembles a Hydra, always returning back to the world stage, stronger than before.
  • Esoteric Order of the White Worm: An ancient Sarkic order, disguised as an occult fraternal organization, that operates throughout the European continent. It is one of the oldest Neo-Sarkic orders on the continent, founded by Hungarian nobles.
  • House of the Blood Lotus: A Neo-Sarkic organization based in Japan with strong links to the Japanese government. Their true scope of influence is unknown, but it is believed that they have ties to Adytum's Wake.
  • The Darkwater Lodge: A Sarkic order with African roots, brought to North America by African slaves. Initially extremely violent, participating in an exceptionally brutal slave uprising just after their arrival, they are now relatively peaceful, although they do practice a gruesome shepherding of the flesh ritual known as the Nsämanf'tsatsa.
  • The Weilstedt: A community of Jewish-Sarkites stationed at BackDoor SoHo, dealing with illegal medication.
  • Société de la Fleur Sanglante/Society of the Bloody Flower: A Neo-Sarkic group led by Karcist Lucien Dutoit, and previously stationed in France before moving to Portugal.
  • Geomeunpi Aideul/Children of the Black Blood: A group of Sarkites located in South Korea and lead by Karcist Youngsun Ban.
  • Fraternity of Skin: A Neo-Sarkic cult stationed in England which also worshiped Yaldabaoth and indulged in incest.
  • Sisterhood of the First Flesh: A Neo-Sarkic cult which operated in the city of Three Portlands before being dissolved in the 1980s by the Unusual Incidents Unit.

Key beliefs

The five principal steps of Sarkicism:

  • Apotheosis: Becoming a God. Proto-Sarkites believe that only over time and through the Grand Karcist can this be achieved, while Neo-Sarkites view that the only way of becoming a god is through will.
  • Will: The driving force of a man. 
  • Theophagy: The sacramental consumption of a God
  • Sacrifice: Either sacrifice one self for the benefit the many (Proto-Sarkites) or sacrifice of the many to benefit the one (Neo-Sarkites)
  • "To Shepherd the Flesh": Cultivate organic matter

The Valkzaron

The Valkzaron is Sarkic scripture that also serves as a grimoire (spell book). The Foundation has at least one Valkzaron in it's archives, and it serves as it's primary source of information about everything Sarkic.

The Ämärangnä Language

The Ämärangnä Language (or Adytite), is the native language of Proto-Sarkites who live in Southern Siberia, the Upper Yenisei and the Sayan mountain. It is part of Uralic language family, and is related to Hungarian, Finnish, Estonian and Sami.

Goal

The Sarkites are set to bring a "a new age of Flesh", presumably planning to terraform the entire world the same way they did to the ancient Daeva-cities. It is speculated that SCP-610 will play a role in this plan.

Relationship with other anomalous factions

Due to the global threat that Sarkicism is for the status quo in the world, the SCP Foundation, the Global Occult Coalition, the Church of the Broken God and the Horizon Initiative have formed an alliance for an upcoming occult war. The Church of the Broken God views Sarkicism as a biblical foe, while the Sarkites see the Church as just another obstacle in their path. The Chaos Insurgency also seems to be an enemy opposing the Sarkites.

Fifth Secretary Noi Komrizo of the "Fifth International Workers' Vanguard Party", a group of Fifthist communists who are responsible for SCP-2573, supported the Sarkites' activities, mostly due to them fighting against the Daevite suppression.

A group of Sarkites of European origin who came to America where they used their powers to steal people's identities, such as Aaron Lisowski, formed an alliance with the criminal organization known as the Chicago Spirits in which they aided the organization in their criminal activities.

A benevolent campus Nälkä group was founded at Deer College known as the Karcist Kollektive which aimed to bring together fellow students who followed the religion and break the preconceptions about "Sarkic Cults".

  • SCP-6013: A sapient Sarkic warship leviathan sunk in the bottom of the Kara Sea. It was surrounded by a complex structure of coral and flesh and possessed visceral tubes imbedded in Earth's crust which it used to gain nutrients and could use them to release biomass and pathogens that would result in a K-class scenario. Foundation agent Joanne Greer became connected both mentally and physically to SCP-6013, becoming SCP-6013-A. Fearing that SCP-6013 would destroy humanity despite its affable behavior, Greer's lover, Foundation researcher Blake Kennedy who oversaw the situation regarding SCP-6013 decided to execute a protocol that destroyed the warship and Joanne.

Trivia

  • The word "Sarkic" derives from Greek and it means "Flesh".
    • In a similar fashion, the word "nälkä" means "hunger" in Finnish.
  • The SCP Foundation's Dr. Judith Low, Senior Adviser at the Department of History, is a specialist in Sarkic culture and anomalies.
  • During an interview with Dr. Clef, Ion showed dislike in referring to his religion as Sarkicism, since the name originated as a slang from the Mekhanites, opting to instead use their real name Nälkä.
  • Metaphysician, the author and creator of Sarkicism and most of its lore, was permanently banned from the SCP site due to having heavily plagiarized from Sethianism and other works.
  • An instance of SCP-2305-A, a paper which describes failed attempts at neutralizing various anomalies, which described a failed attempt at neutralizing SCP-139-ARC through incineration which instead resulted in the resurrection of daeva general Sepid the White and the expansion of the Daevites' history to today who then processed to take over the world, also described a resistant movement called the "Rebirth of Adytum". This movement was founded in Greece, the Sahara, Northwestern India and the Urals, and was led by Ion. This movement also hunted down former SCP Foundation employees, since they were responsible for the resurrection of the Daevites.
  • Although never stated, given that SCP-6140 resulted in the Daevites reverting to a normal and peaceful civilization, it is presumed that just like with the Scarlet King Sarkicism also ceased to exist as it never actually existed.
  • In the original universe of the Three Moons Initiative, where they were known as their universe's version of the SCP Foundation, the Sarkic cults attempted to summon Ion using a ritual but they messed up and instead summoned a powerful cosmic flesh monster that was designated SCP-37238 and began to slowly destroy planet Earth that forced the Foundation and the survivors to flee to a different universe.
  • When Foundation astronauts were sent into space to see how the universe was expanding as a result of SCP-184, they came across several copies of known planets, satellites and stars made out of random materials, one of which included a copy of Earth made out of human flesh and bones that prompted one of the astronauts to call it a Sarkic utopia.
  • During the Neoproterozoic Era a group of the extraterrestrial race known as Species of Interest-002 who were adherents of the Ortothan religion tried to colonize planet Earth during that time, but a minority began using biological manipulation and worship of a flesh deity in order supply the Koru-teusa with unlimited amount of blood before being persecuted by their brethren due to the belief that they followers of the Voruteut. Although there is seemingly no known connection to Sarkicism it is theorized that these minorities were influenced by the same entities that influenced the creation of the religion.
  • It is possible that SCP-2610 may have ties to Sarkicism since the members produced human abominations through incest and genetic manipulation that was seen as serving a holy objective. However, it appears from the article that it is actually more tied with SCP-2935 rather than Sarkicism.
