Ogou is the Loa who presides over fire, smithery, politics and wars. He is viewed as the ultimate fighter, the faithful warrior that will defend you through the end. According to legends, during the Haitian Revolution, the majority of the slaves were possessed by the mighty Ogou, including Jean Jacques Dessalines, Haiti's father of Independence.

 Ogou is by far, the most known and served Loa in Haitian Vodou. He is masculinity embodied, he is the husband of both  the gracious Erzulie Freda and the fierce Erzulie Dantor. Ogou is very famous for his love of women; although greeted as Papa Ogou in possession, he chooses the most beautiful women in the assistance as his wives for the time being, and usually ask their hands in spiritual marriage. As the traditional warrior, in appearance, he always displayed his attributes: A machete or saber, rum and tobacco, and curses a lot.  Ogou is a very severe Loa, he usually punish his worshipers for their misdeeds; on their knees, Ogou never hesitates to use his machete to slap them (in the butt)
The image of Saint Georges is usually used to represent Ogou, for the soldier shown fighting a dragon.
