OriginsEdit

Nicholas Owen was a Jesuit lay brother who was the main builder of priest holes during the reigns of Queen Elizabeth I and King James I. Priest holes were meant to hide priests from the Anti-Catholic persecutions of the time. The number of holes he made may never be known due to his solitary work and skill at hiding them. He was eventually captured and tortured to death in the Tower of London.

EffectsEdit

When tapped against a hard surface, it will create a doorway large enough for a person to enter. The doorway is not visible from the outside and can only be opened from the inside. The room created by the artifact will have enough air to stay inside for one day. After the user leaves, they will experience a hernia and some lower back pain. The door stays permanent sometimes, other times it fades away.

CollectionEdit

This artifact was originally in the possession of Subhas Chandra Bose, who used it with Pope Clement VII’s Zucchetto to escape his house arrest. It was collected by agent Jacques Croix on July 1st, 1945.
