Dedicated to St. Roch, patron saint of healing against the plague and in this case during the Louisiana yellow fever epidemic… this cemetery, chapel and shrine is located off the beaten path in a quiet little area about 10 minutes outside of the French Quarter. At the paranormal division of the historical registry in New Orleans, it is noted that there are ‘sightings’ of a female sanguinary templar vampire that roams the area. She appears in human form and then vanishes into thin air.
Caught on instant camera, a timeframe spanning from 1947 to 1961, she appears again and again and again. As part of a secret society, she always appears donning the classic Hegemon attire. She is reputed as an intercessory deity who guides those on the pathway of darkness into the light. With the ability to heal the sick, she works miraculously alongside the patron saint. On the flip side, her dark side is known to fervently devour those who are treacherous in disposition towards their fellow man. She is represented as a force of balance and reconciliation and assumes the Egyptian God-form of Ma’at. Her mysterious apparition is part of the unsolved legend of St. Roch Cemetery which inspires thousands of visitors yearly.
