AGWÉ

Haitian Sea God

Also known as Agoué-Taroyo, Agoué, Agoueh

The Fishy Protector of Boats and Fishermen

He’s the boyfriend of La Sirene. He owns a magnificent yacht and a palace under the sea, so you can see why she has the hots for him.

He looks after fish and aquatic plants, and he is also a great protector of sailors, especially fishermen. Provided, of course, that he receives a little incentive in the form of food offerings. In case you need to know, he is very fond of champagne but not so keen on seafood.

He likes his sacrifices floated to him on small rafts. If they sink you know they have been accepted.

So make sure your raft contains a few bricks or bits of lead piping in its construction. Or pick a very rough day.
