Running Round the Table
Parent of Manny
Associated Epic Attributes:
Agwe is the god of the sea, the ruler of all fishes and aquatic life and the patron god of those who make their livings from the ocean. One of the oldest of the Loa, he is married to the volatile Erzulie and the sensual Mami Wata, two women who embody the unpredictable currents of his ocean home; he is also the lord of the underworld, ferrying dead souls to and fro in his boat and watching the borders of the vast, lightless seas. Older and more venerated than many of the Loa, he is a man whose bearing commands respect but whose air of otherworldliness makes him uncomfortable to be around, and his temper is never predictable, sometimes deep and melancholy as the fathomless depths and sometimes as quickly raging as a storm at sea.
He is also the father of Emanuel “Manny” Dimanche
