Ogun, the Master of Iron, Lord of Fire, the Wounded Hero

Ogun is the great artificer, forger of mighty weapons. Ogun is the slaughterer, the embodiment of the raw joy of battle. His legend started in ancient times on the plains of Africa, where even as a mortal man he was believed to be a God. His works and deeds associated him with strength and fire. When he joined the ranks of the Loa, he inevitably became the patron of warriors and blacksmiths. Ogun is involved in a love triangle with Agwé and Erzulie, made all the more bitter since Agwé is a being of watery aspect. Ogun is invoked to protect those setting out on long journeys. He detests liars and thieves, and is not overly fond of pirates. Still, Ogun is just and he judges individuals on their merits and circumstances. Ogun has always been associated with power, no matter from what it stems, and as the years roll on political aspects of Ogun have begun to make themselves known. There are a number of different Loa that are associated with Ogun or aspects of him. Ogun-Shangó, for example, is the patron of thunder and a dangerous being to deal with.
