Chanté was born in Haiti to parents of runaway slaves. She was in training to be a voodoo priestess, but instead took the first opportunity she had to leave the island. That opportunity was a pirate named “Black Dog” Nate and his rowboat.
Though no longer a follower of the voodoo religion, she uses her training to help the ship spot treasure. She also does Tarot readings to milk Europeans for money, and carries a black feathered chicken foot to focus her magics on enslavers, manipulators, and pirates that piss her off.
