The Cult of Coolificus Coolage, known to members as the "Coolest Cool" or "Cool Cool", is a human cult that operates out of the town of New Comshine.


The Cult of Coolificus Coolage was established by a local preacher, Christian Spirit, in the mid 1960s to enlighten the populace on the inside teachings of Comshine Governor Leeroy Maskwell (better known to the Arkn as Co'olfic'colag, or Coolificus Coolage: the Dekn Lord of Salvation). Maskwell's interactions with Spirit and his followers led to the first knowledge of the Arkn and Dekn in the open community, along with making the first offerings to what became known as the Emissary of the Frog God. (While this indeed led to a .Reality shift, that shift became the current incarnation of the Handprints canon.)

Over time, Christian Spirit became corrupt by the teachings of Maskwell, continuing long past the governor's murder and turned his followers into the first Branch of the cult.

Primary Branch: Children of the Caretaker

Flash forward to the early '90s, where Christian Spirit became leader of the Cult under the alias of "The Caretaker". Domestic sacrifices and offerings to the Dekn Lords have became his way of teaching.

The first of the sacrifices was recorded under the New Comshine Police Department's Third Log as The Three Blind Mice killings. This log, known as Case Echo, goes into gruesome detail about three mental patients kidnapped by the Caretaker, blinded, and neutered, being forced to roam an empty house while they were hunted by the Cult in a game of sport. Needless to say, the game didn't last too long, as it was meant to be sacrifice was made in attempt to summon Coolificus Coolage into .Reality. In canon, the sacrifice was an utter failure, leading to the deaths of all three individuals at the hands of The Caretaker's son (also a member of the cult), Adam Spirit. As punishment, Adam was made prisoner and player of the next sacrificial offering, a redux of the first. It is generally assumed the offering went as planned, and Adam was sacrificed. However, NCPD logs detail Adam Spirit as a possible connection to The Hooks Killer, through the Caretaker's adopted son, Damien Spirit, who was also a chief investigator in the Case Two logs.

It was believed that Adam then went on to murder the remaining members of the cult under the guise of The Hooks Killer. Kidnapping Evelyn Spirit, the pregnant daughter of the cult leader (and his own sister), Adam removed her child and eviscerated her. It was believed that Adam then consumed the infant, to shock the detectives.
