Malandros

Sometimes it takes a thug to beat a thug. Malandros are spirits of criminals (thieves, hoodlums, murderers) petitioned to protect people against their living human equivalent. They are invoked and venerated by those who cannot avoid dangerous streets, neighbourhoods, and locations. The Malandros are petitioned to travel beside you, serving as a spiritual bodyguard and protecting from all danger. They are also invoked for justice, legal or otherwise. Because they are criminals, the Malandros are sometimes asked to fulfill petitions other spirits might reject. They form a Maria Lionza court.
