Baron Samedi by ExcessiveSurrealist Baron Samedi by ExcessiveSurrealist
Baron Samedi, master of the dead in the Vodou religion, stands at the crossroads, where the souls of dead humans pass on their way to the spirit world. If he is in a good mood he may grant his followers everlasting life, but if he is in a bad mood he may bury them alive or bring them back as a mindless zombie.

I think everlasting life sounds just as bad as being buried alive and coming back as a zombie slave.
