About High Priest Jean Emmanuel
My name is High Priest Jean Emmanuel, and I come from a long line of Voodoo practitioners. With each generation perfecting and honing their skills, my spells and curses are among the most powerful that can be found anywhere. My grandfather was not the first voodoo practitioner, but his reputation proceeds him. Referred to by his followers as (rough translation) "The High-Priest of All That Is Knowing" he slowly passed his skills on to me.
Hamantou Zulu, my grandfather, moved to Haiti from Africa when he was a boy, and developed his in-born talents with local mambo and bocor voodoo priests. Acknowledged far and wide as a spiritually gifted child, he led his first voodoo service at the age of 14. Before his 20th birthday, Grandpa Hamantou had been chosen as the head voodoo priest of the entire village.
One of Hamantou's most celebrated spell castings has become known simply as The Day of the Snakes. In the spring of 1928, at the height of a snake infestation that had claimed the lives of over 20 villagers, Hamantou put his powers to use. Using a "spirit pot", which is a container with the trapped soul of an ancestral spirit, Hamantou summond 100's of snakes to the temple. When the temple was full of the writhing black snakes, Hamantou locked them inside and burned down the temple. To this day, the area around the temple remains snake-free...a testament to my grandfather's lasting power.
This is the same ancient power that has been passed on to me, and that I draw upon to cast Voodoo spells and curses that are unmatched in strength and effectiveness. This power is the reason people seek me out to do their bidding.
