Loa and Orisha in In Nomine

Canonically, Loa and Orisha have an uneasy truce with Heaven and many Vodouists are just as open to possession by a Dominion as they are to possession by a Loa or Orisha. Dominic frowns on this detente, but it’s Nybbas who really tries to undermine it.

Although not canonical, I would suggest that characters with the Vodou or Santeria skills should be able to use them to recognize possession. The higher the CD the more the practitioner can learn about the possessing god or Celestial.
