Sailing, Stealing and Syphilis
Maroon fighters are escaped slaves brought over to the sea by the colonial powers. These semi-sedentary villages are often allied with both unconquered indigenous peoples and pirate crews. They often trade their harvested and looted food for weaponry from pirates. There is a variety in their beliefs but most are a syncretism of their old faiths and Virtutism. They believe in the Virtute but also belief in another deity called Mlanjeni, or The Riverman. They are both brothers and Mlanjeni will one day overtake the position as the king of the skies. They worship his totemic spirits called the Laos. They also revere practices of necromancy, mind control, and healing.
