Originally a Roman gladiator, Ghede was among the first of his clan to leave their ancestral homeland and travel into the New World. He insituated himself into Haiti with the aid of various ghoul proxies that infiltrated the nascent Voodoo cults among the slaves and turned them into the worship of Set.
His own childe Ezuli, however, went renegade and set herself up as a goddess in her own right. Jealous, Ghede began a long campaign against his wayward progeny that continues even in the Final Nights. He is also determined to eradicate the Serpents of the Light, who originate in his domain.
