Ghede Nibo

lwa of the dead

Never depend on anyone else in life, because even your own shadow leaves you when you walk in darkness.

A creature of extreme beauty, many who see him mistake him for an angel. Yet there is nothing angelic about the lwa of the dead who can be lethal when crossed. Indeed, his temper is legendary, as are his skills with a sword. And he is particularly well known for protecting women and children. Because of his own violent death, Nibo has a soft spot for others who suffer a similar fate and he has a profound sense of justice. A creature of great mystery, he is powerful and capricious. Not someone you want to cross lightly, for he forgives no slight and will not rest until he makes sure that wrongdoers get what’s coming to them.

Look for me in...
