|Faction:||Independent, Disparate Alliance (M20)|
Followers of Voudun, Santeria, Candomblé, Obeah, Hoodoo and other Afro-Caribbean religions, the Bata'a were once an independent Craft whose numbers rivaled those of some Traditions. Their influence in Haiti and New Orleans was especially strong, though they did not differentiate members who worked true magic from others who worked sorcery, True Faith, or had blood ties with the Eshu and Nunnehi. With no interest in the Ascension War, the Bata'a maintained their position until the 20th century, when the Technocracy increased its pogrom. With their culture and homelands under threat, the surviving Bata'a have mostly joined the Dreamspeakers, Verbena, and others, seeing their Craft's death as a necessary step for their rebirth as members of the Traditions.
