Chango is a fiery, silver-tongued, ax-wielding Orisha who is an important guide to Shadow’s unexplored past.[1][2][3]

Background Edit

Armed with two axes, an electrifying charisma, selfless passion, and warrior spirit, Chango could guide Shadow to his true place within the world of gods.[4]

The Orishas play a mysterious but vital role in Shadow’s spiritual awakening.[5][6] Guided on this spiritual journey by the gods of his black ancestors, the Orishas, Shadow must decide exactly who he is: a god seeking veneration or a man in service of the “we.”[7]
