Erzulie Freda is everybody’s favourite. She is rich; she loves jewellery, perfume, pretty dresses and pink champagne. She usually gets the credit for financial good fortune. Erzulie Freda is also helpful in matters of the heart, although she has little luck herself. When she reveals herself she is often weeping. Her suitors among the lwa include Danmbala and Ogou Sen Jak. Erzulie Freda is jealous of her sister Erzulie Dantor. This often ends in a row.
