Erzulie Dantor is the Vodoun Goddess of jealousy and vengeance. Vodou has three sets of deities or lwas–Rada, Ghede, and Petro–each with their own associations. Erzulie Dantor is the Petro aspect of the Goddess Erzulie, and she is the patron lwa of women who have been abused. She is fiercely protective of her children and her followers. In her arms she holds her daughter Anais, who relays messages to and from Erzulie Dantor. While she is a strict mother, she will go to any lengths to protect her children and to seek vengeance on those who have wronged them. Erzulie Dantor is also the patron Goddess of lesbians.
