ELUSU

Yoruba Water Goddess

Also known as OLOKUN-SU, OLOKUNSU

Fishy water goddess

The wife of Olokun the sea god. She is a beautiful lady with skin the color of ocean spray. She is especially beautiful if you like fish as she is covered in scales from her breasts all the way to her toes.

She is inclined to be benevolent unless you entertain thoughts of touching the sacred fish around her home in Lagos. In which case you will be drownded and utterly deaded.
