Caribbean Crossroads God

Lord of the Crossroads and Magic

He’s the rather nasty younger brother of GHEDE. He is weakened by sunlight and strengthened by moonlight. Takes over the nightshift from LEGBA(2), and they do not get on well.

Sorry, he ignores prayers and offerings. For him dark is dark.
