Delia Toussaint gave up her chance to go to school and rise above her origins for love. She married her lover Tyree at the age of seventeen and the two of them set themselves up as houngan and mambo for their community.
Aspect: That Voodoo that You Do

Phase Two Rising Conflict: What shaped you?

When Tyree died during Hurricane Katrina, Delia opened the Gates of Guinee and brought him back from the Afterlife. A Warden came to take her life as a Lawbreaker, but Maman Brigitte, the Ghede loa intervened, claiming Delia as her own. Marked by the loa, Delia’s power grew from mortal faith into true Ritual. The Baron Samedi took Tyree back to Guinee and Maman Brigitte claimed Delia’s unborn baby as payment for her powers.
