Queen of the Sea
Ora is so beautiful that Olokun took one look at her and fell madly in love. They married. She remains his favourite of many wives. It is traditional to invoke Ora when making requests of Olokun, as it’s believed that mentioning her name softens his heart or makes him inclined to be generous. Tell him that the request honors her. Alternatively petition Ora directly whether for her own help or to intercede with Olokun.
