Mademoiselle Charlotte

In Voodoo, Mademoiselle Charlotte is a Loa of European descent and a symbol of all white women.

She manifests with the perceived personality traits of a white woman, but appears during the course of Voodoo ceremonies only rarely, possibly because of her non-African origin.

Mademoiselle Charlotte loves the strict observance in her honor of all the niceties of ritual protocol. She prefers to speak French.

She enjoys sweet rose, blue, white or cream colored beverages; water sweetened with syrup; all kinds of non-alcoholic liqueurs; and clairin.

Her colour is rose. She prefers the tender meat of young chickens as her ritual food offering. Like Erzulie, her services are difficult to obtain; she only works for people to whom she takes a fancy.
