Accused sex cultist Keith Raniere relied on eight women to carry out his darkest desires and grow his harem of slaves, a former member testified Friday.
Jurors seated on Raniere’s trial were shown a photo of the 58-year-old surrounded by his alleged top-tier sex slaves, who were required to refer to him as “Grandmaster” or “Supreme Master,” Lauren Salzman told the court.
The women, Salzman said, had all been branded with Raniere’s initials and were required to induct their own slaves, jurors heard.
The special group, called DOS, includes “Smallville” actress Allison Mack and “Battlestar Galactica” actress Nicki Clyne.
“Did each of these slaves have slaves under them?” prosecutor Tanya Hajjar asked Salzman, who said she joined DOS in January 2017.
“Yes, at least one,” Salzman replied.
Last week, jurors heard testimony from a woman named Sylvie, who identified her master as Monica Duran.
Sylvie said Duran tasked her with “seducing” Raniere — and that Ranire later had sex with her and forced her to wear a “dog collar.”
