Reverend Odessa C. Ray is a renowned spiritual leader and prophetess, known for her deep wisdom and profound insights into the mysteries of time and existence. She is the guiding force behind the Ancient and Mystical Order of the Time Cube.
Born with an innate curiosity and an insatiable thirst for knowledge, Reverend Ray embarked on a lifelong quest for truth and enlightenment. Her journey led her through various spiritual traditions and esoteric teachings, but it was her encounter with The Book of the SubGenius that truly transformed her understanding of the universe.
Having awakened as a SubGenius in the year we knew as 1998 - the year that the saucers were allegedly coming - Odessa knew right away that something was very wrong with that date, though she couldn't put her finger on it. As years passed and X-Days came and went, Odessa continued to study and waited for a sign.
The answer came during the bygone days of the pre-advertising internet. One day, Odessa stumbled upon Gene Ray's Time Cube website. Though at first it seemed to be a rather silly diversion, it soon became clear that this was not a random find, but a purposeful collision of cosmic forces orchestrated by J.R. "Bob" Dobbs Himself. As Reverend Ray continued to read, the room crackled with intellectual energy, and "Bob" transmitted to her the complete cosmic consequences of the Time Cube - including the TRUE date of July 5th, 1998.
From the (freqently offensive and famously rambling) Time Cube website, Odessa's notions of time and space were fundamentally changed, and this formed the foundation of Reverend Ray's teachings. She immersed herself in the study of ancient Time Cube texts, Extradimensional Languages, Megaphysics, and High Pseudoscience - the final result of her studies is the only scientific theory that accurately describes all observable phenomena in the universe, and beyond it.
From that day forward, Odessa devoted her life to incorporating the wisdom of the Time Cube into her SubGenius Ministry. She took the name Ray, after the Time Cube's original proponent, and spends her time preparing for the Rupture, winning dollars souls for "Bob", brainwashing deprogramming would-be Normies, preaching the Propaganda Gospel of Slack, and sharing the inscrutable secrets of the Harmonic Cubic Time with all those who will listen.
