The Obeah Religion is one of the most ancient practices of worship studied by black people throughout the centuries. This demonic practice was brought from Africa to the Caribbean by slaves, and on some islands, used as the motivational tool that led to the abolishment of slavery. The Devow family was the most powerful practitioners of the black art form since it reached the West Indies. Every few generations a new heir was born to replace the incumbent Obeah Queen. However, because the child was taken away to a foreign country, the witch decided against permitting her reign and implemented a strategy to have the family's heir found and killed.
