You think the realm of the mystical is limited to ancient texts and relics? That bad old science made the magic go away? The divine exists in cyberspace same as out here.
Jenny Calendar[src]
Circle of Kayless 1997

The technopagan Jenny performs a ritual online.

A technopagan was an individual who employed modern technology, particularly the internet and its tools, to delve into the supernatural world, study it, and share information with those with similar interests.[1]

History[]

In 1996, Jenny Calendar identified portents of a demon taking over the Internet, such as power surges, online shutdowns, and bone casting. She revealed to Giles she was a technopagan and helped him imprison Moloch the Corruptor. Jenny contacted her online group and other technopagans from Vancouver, Hawaii, Denver, and Mexico City performed the Circle of Kayless with them by typing together the incantation.[1]

In 1997, Jenny looked online for unexplained incidents and found news of apocalyptic portents. Additionally, a monk in Cortona, Brother Luca, was sending out global mailings about a prophecy. The latest one said: "Isaiah 11:6," a Bible verse that identified the Anointed One as a child.[2]

In 1998, Jenny attempted to help Angel restore his soul by translating the original Ritual of Restoration using a computer. On the night she finished it, however, the vampire tracked down Jenny, destroyed her computer and printer, and killed her.[3] Buffy and Willow eventually found Jenny's backup disk with the complete ritual,[4] which Willow performed, successfully restoring Angel's soul.[5]
