Apis is a forum member that introduces the community to multiple different puzzles for the Sanctuary of Secrets. There are many meanings to the name Apis, but based on what is known it most likely refers to the genus for honey bees.
He first spoke with the community in April 2009 when he posted a thread titled They Are Coming Back that contained a video which lead people to the Sanctuary's website. After that, he went silent for two years, until he again posted a thread, The Fool's Journey, inviting community members to find a new form of communication since the events At the Door shut down SoS's website.
In his own words, Apis explained his role in the Sanctuary of Secrets during The Fool's Journey puzzle.
Who is Apis and what is your role in the Sanctuary of Secrets?In the simplest of terms an Apis is a designation bestowed upon those who execute the will of the Melissonomoi. It is the modern day equivalent of the ancient priests to the oracle at Delphi. Put simply we are her drones. We receive and decipher her visions and lay the framework from which these messages can be propagated through nexus points that the Melissonomoi identifies-case in point darkdemonscrygaia.com, The Secret World forums. On the surface it is a community, discussing a game which is currently being produced by a commercial entity known as Funcom, but look closer. This is a game based on dangerous ideas, directed towards a community of intelligent yet impressionable minds who dissect and discuss these ideas in minute detail. These individuals in turn create smaller yet equally powerful ripples of ideas in their social circles. A fractal fed back loop that resonates around the world. Now do you understand what I mean by a nexus? To put it bluntly, the ideas some of you are casually discussing may actually be closer to the truth than you would ever dream. I have been given the responsibility of watching over the collective development of this particular nexus. I am to prepare you lest the darkness catches you unawares.
