The Temple of Occupoa is a significant landmark in the prosperous city of Aloe. It is a huge, domed, concrete beehive structure over eighty feet high. It looms over tenements, a wonder of engineering largely ignored by the locals. The Temple is the home of a cult of at least 16 women of various ages who are experienced holy prostitutes. Also, one elderly beadle was tasked with keeping an eye on the donation box at the entrance.
During the events of "Tides Elba", the Temple is violated by Black Company members Croaker, Goblin, Silent, Elmo, Tuco, and Reams. They kidnap the prostitute Tides Elba on orders from the Lady. The locals would later complain about the violation of the Temple, but not about the kidnapping of the young woman.
