Agaou is the god who rules over thunder, rain, lightning, wind, storm and earthquake. Very powerfull and violent, Agaou is feared and respected by all. It is said that when the earth tremors, it is because Agaou is angry. One has to be very strong to harbor this spirit. His possessions are so violent, there have been deaths associated with them. Even Mambo and Hougan are affraid of this spirit. When Agaou comes in possession people are trembling of fear cause his voice is like the thunder itself and he's always ready to beat those who do not serve him correctly, with his machette or sword. In possession he keeps repeating " It is I who am the gunner of God; when I roar the earth trembles." The image of St Michel is used to represent Agaou.
