Why the Ghede?
In the religious practice of vodou, the Ghede represent the loa who embody the spirits of death and fertility. For some death may be no laughing matter, but the Ghede are lively jokers and cigar smokers. In particular, the psychopomp Papa Ghede is the guardian of young ones, which makes him the perfect mascot for dark YA fiction.
