You are letting your heart lead you astray with a woman who's got the ibi in her.
— Galvin's grandmother warning Galvin about Macy

Galvin's Grandmother is a deceased Haitian priestess.


Early Life

Galvin's grandmother lost an index finger on her left hand when undergoing a dangerous trial performed by the Chiriji to test her courage. She put a Cowrie Shell on Galvin to protect him from demons.

After she passed away, Galvin and Macy reached out to her with Mama Roz's help. Her spirit possessed Mama Roz to communicate with Galvin; she noticed the protection mark was gone and immediately attacked Macy when she realized she had the ibi in her. When Galvin tried to stop her, the woman put Galvin to sleep so that they could talk in the spirit realm without Macy overhearing them. Realizing that Galvin was in love with Macy, she told him what needed to be done in order to free her from the ibi.


Protective of her family and a believer in the supernatural.
