Samedi

Clearly, baron samedi, but in Obeah we have a similar spirit or likeness called papa bones, unlike baron though, papa is more of a healer-sorcerer he isn't so jovial, he's more intense but still humourous and wry. Often syncretised to bhairava shiva or kal bhairo, and sometimes to a saint (usually st Gabriel, but depends on the island or the person).

Maman Brigitte is the wife of Baron Samedi. She is the mother of the Ghede nation. Brigitte is a powerful cemetery lwa and is given offerings of pepper-infused rum. Like her husband Baron Samedi, Maman Brigitte rules the cemetery and the dead. She is called upon in matters involving healing and to punish the wicked.
