Spirits of the Dead

This is the clan of dead-good Loa spirits involved with death, corpses and fashionable skulls. PAPA GHEDE is the famous Voodoo Dude from Haiti. By which we mean Vodou.

He claims to have quite a family, but maybe it is just because he likes dressing up in fancy clothes. See also Baron Samedi.
