R&C Occultics (R&Cオカルティクス R&C Okarutikusu?) (also written as R&C OCCULTICS Co. Ltd[1]) is an IT company specializing in Magic.[2][3][4]

EtymologyEdit

R&C is derived from the Rose and the Cross, which make up the Rose Cross of Rosicrucianism.[5]

PrinciplesEdit

GT1 (Origin/Nature)[3][4]

Services and products by R&C Occultics include luck charms, fortune telling, home appraisals connected to cardinal directions and ley lines, witch's potions to dispel bad luck which can be brewed using readily available plants and herbs with a siphon coffee maker, yes/no forms from which an AI can determine problems and the right potion to deal with them, instructions for creating spiritual items using 3D printers, and lecture videos providing training sessions for basic breathing and meditation techniques.[3][4]

The company and its website's development is being guided by its CEO, the legendary Rosicrucian magician Anna Sprengel.[6][4][7][8]

BackgroundEdit

R&C Occultics appeared on the internet at some point after several large conflicts made hiding magic from the world at large increasingly difficult.[3] A key figure in its development was Anna Sprengel, the legendary Rosicrucian magician who played a role in the foundation of the Golden Dawn, who had recently been restored to her body after Madame Horos had stolen it for over a century.[9][10][4] At the same time as Anna was restored, following the Crowley's Hazard invasion of the British Commonwealth and the attack on the Queen Britannia, Aleister Crowley and Lola Stuart, the two main figures behind the Magic-Science Treaty, were gone.[9][10][11]

Likely beginning as a fortune telling site, R&C Occultics expanded quickly, selling occult services and goods while gathering personal and private information on many people in the name of helping with troubles and testing romantic compatibility. No one knew where a corporation of its size and capital had come from, or in which country its headquarters were located.[3] The Magic Side was unable to stop the IT company as they had no experience with someone loudly announcing existence of magic yet remaining completely hidden, and the Science Side, while controlling the internet, could not properly detect the threat and did nothing about it. With neither side stopping it, R&C Occultics continued to spread and grow in the gaps between them.[3][4]

R&C Occultics was trending at the time of Christmas Eve, with Neoka Norito aiding its spread after being alerted to its existence through his automatic investment algorithm, by having his cracking servers make parallel posts to bring it to the top of the trending lists, so that he could utilize its resources while having the ubiquity prevent it from being specifically traced back to him (though Kumokawa Seria still learned of his involvement).[12][2] From the site, Neoka learned how to use a sanctifying vocalization adaptation, which he mistakenly thought of as the 'Minimum Collision Theory'.[12][12]

At the same time, a new fad had been spread in the form of custom donuts with decorations based on a person's birthdate, blood type, and lucky color.[13][2] The spread of an occult-related fad, which would normally not do well in the scientifically-minded Academy City, was apparently a sort of litmus test meant to measure people's hearts and determine whether it was possible for them to be swayed.[2]

After Kamijou Touma's battle with Neoka, while considering the ramifications of the online distribution of magical knowledge, he encountered Anna Sprengel who updated the R&C Occultics homepage, saying that despite trending it still needed her to look after it directly until it really got on track.[4]

Christmas Day ArcEdit

GT2[14]

On Christmas Day, R&C Occultics was continuing to spread, with various incidents occurring around the world due to the magical knowledge it had distributed (including the self-destruction of Anna Sprengel's cooperators).[15][16] The effects were particularly severe in Academy City, where hospitals were overwhelmed with casualties, suffering injuries from the rejection reaction from espers attempting magic (with a Christmas good luck charm ironically prominent among the causes).[17][18][19][20][21][22] During her encounter with Accelerator, Anna referred to R&C Occultics as simply the modern form of her organization.[14]
