Logunedé, or Logun Ede, means "lord of Edé". He is a hunter, fisherman and warrior deity from the city of Edé, Nigeria.

Enchanter and performer of prodigies, they say he protects freshwater sailors and lasting loves.

He is considered one of the most beautiful and vain male orixás. It couldn't be less: he is the son of Orisha Oxossi and Oxum, the goddess of love.

From Oxum, he inherited the sweet way and cunning. From Oxossi, strength and hunting spirit. For this reason, they say that Logun Edé brings in its characteristics both female and male expressions at the same time.

In some representations of religions of African origin, Logun Edé is also represented as a young and childish figure.

Logun Edé's temperament is often contradictory: at times he appears calm and kind. In others, he is serious and prefers solitude.

According to legend, it is because his life was divided into two periods in the year:

     For six months he accompanied his father Oxóssi into the woods, where he learned about hunting, developing agility and the axé of abundance.
     In the other six months, he lives with his mother Oxum in the freshwater rivers, learning about fishing and delicacy.

This movement reminds us about the cycles of life, inconstancy and resilience. Logunedé is a warrior Orisha, connoisseur of spells, always acts with strategy, courage, intelligence and bravery. If he enters a duel, it is to win and, therefore, he is greatly feared by enemies.

He is cited as a hunter as bold as a leopard, ruler of hunting, fishing, progress and plenty. He takes progress, abundance, prosperity, victories and achievements in the lives of those who worship him with faith and from the heart, with good character.

Both in Umbanda and Candomblé, Logunedé is an excellent hunter and fisherman. Whether in freshwater or on land, he acts patiently and wisely to achieve what he desires.
